I only liked two things about this premiere - one, Emily is finally given a deadline with her revenge AND two, the show managed to make me forget all the awful things about s2 and sort of apologize for their shit in just one line - no more about carrion or the Initiative - AMEN!

Now about Aiden - curious way to end the episode, do I really believe he would be teaming up with Vicki against Emily, nope. That would be totally OOC, but given how this show can be with its writing its anybody's guess.

Nicola, good job! You were definitely paying attention! I was a little shocked at Jack's cruel comments to Emily, till I also noticed his pained expression as he turned away from Emily. I was glad to see that he's just trying to distance himself from her, but that he still cares. Loved the addition of Mr. Hotness himself, Justin Hartley! They can show him shirtless any day in my book! This epi was all over the place, but it's only the first episode, so I'll give them time to spin out the story.

so it's only natural she'd be different and react to things differently now. The Jack and Emily scene was pretty hot, even though I've never been a fan of them! And all I can is I love Nolan so much!

I don't really understand what the big deal is of them using Huntington's disease... If it wasn't that, it would have been some other disease. Also, I'm fairly certain we've heard mention of this disease being party of his genetic history in the past, so then that would make sense that Emily chose for the results to show that. I don't think it's a plot device at all. It just seems ridiculous that the particular disease itself is causing people to question the validity of the story. The next episode's description is talking about Conrad learning to deal with his mortality. So no, it's not like he's just brushing it aside like it's no big deal. He was in shock and trying to deal with it all. All they told Daniel was that he'd have to be tested for it. What can he do until then? He doesn't have to be freaking out either. I think Charlotte's lack of concern and caring is all tied in to what's happened to her. She's become a changed character. They're evolving her to have more of a backbone, so it's only natural she'd be different and react to things differently now. The Jack and Emily scene was pretty hot, even though I've never been a fan of them! And all I can is I love Nolan so much!

Why did they ditch the CREATOR of the show? Season 2 was awesome. Period. I hope season 3 won't suck now.

Regardless as to whether it was Conrad's father or grandfather who had Huntington's, that's not the sort of disease a person who carries it just ignores. It's completely implausible that Conrad would carry Huntington's and potentially pass it on to his son and just shrug it off like "Meh. NBD." I'm really, really irritated that of all the medical issues in all the world they could have used, they chose that one. The way it played out last night isn't at all even sort of realistic.

And I did hear that Charlotte lost the baby. I just thought it was sort of convenient when they realized the idea of her being pregnant was a dumb story line in the first place. And also mildly offensive to insinuate that she'd suffered no emotional side-effects as a result of losing her boyfriend and their baby. Maybe we'll get there.

I am quite confused about the Aiden situation right now is he seriously planning to take take down Emily or is it his and Emily's plan..............This episode was seriously big time mess all except Jack.Poor fellow is now confused more than ever.His brother died , his wife who he thought somebody else died and now Emily dropped the bombshell about her being Amanda Clark...........He is the most stressed fellow on this show right now.Feeling really bad for Jack.

This episode felt all over the place. I thought it was just me at the beginning and I'd get into it as the episode went on but 5 minutes before the credits I was still as lost as I had been at the beginning.

Nolan and Emily's scheming and plotting revengenda makes everything good though. What a way to make an entrance!
