This show has gotten so convoluted, I don't think the writers can keep track of all of the details. I've always been suspicious of Ali, however being that they were trying to make it seem like Ali was Mona's killer, it makes me assume she is not. Since day 1 though, I've always somehow hoped that Ali would be A. I have never read the books, but I would believe the twin theory. Going off on a separate tangent, there were a few other things that bothered me about the episode. If it were around Thanksgiving, the weather would be much colder in PA and none of them were dressed like they were on the East Coast. Also, Toby would not have graduated the Police Academy that quickly.
Bill Compton deserved to have a scene of him in the afterlife....perhaps walking with Caroline and his children. Or he could have visited Sookie through a vision by Lafayette, and he could have told her to be happy....that he was content at last, and she should live the life she deserved. Sookie's father came to her in a vision, why couldn't Bill? OR they should have had a scene of his memorial service, since he did so much to help save BT from Hep V vampires, as well as MaryAnn the maenad. He also saved the vampires of Louisiana when the witch spelled them to walk in the sun. He deserved a memorial svc. Jessica and Sookie should have gone to his grave with flowers. They should have named a street or a park after him. And they should have all toasted his memory at their TG dinner 4 years later. If they had to kill Bill, the most human of all vampires, the most generous, self-sacrificing, and caring vampire in the series, then he should have had a fitting farewell. The explosion in the coffin was purely there for shock value, and meant nothing....nothing.
Thank you for articulating everything I have been thinking about this finale! And to think that professional TV writers came up with that crap. Sad.
Am waiting for a bad or boring ep and it just ain't happening. More impressed each week with this perfect cast and excellent production.
A couple comment on terms and conditions: All marriages have terms and conditions, even if most times they are implied or assumed. When Neil got upset when he found that Grace had posed naked, he thought it was a term of their marriage. Grace acted surprised and acted as if she didn’t think that it was, although I suspect that she knew that it was. They need to sit down and discuss the terms and conditions of their marriage, which they, of course, will not. The neighbor says that he and his wife have terms and conditions for their marriage. They argue with each otherbecause they still care. Once you stop fighting over the small things, you quit caring. I am not buying into that argument. I think that when your marriage is going well, you don’t sweat the small stuff.When things are not going well, you argue about the small stuff as a surrogate for bigger problems. When Grace gets mad because Neil says he has to work and can’t makethe college tour and will be there on Sunday Grace gets angry. Would a wife in a good marriage get mad about that? I think not. There are bigger issues that need to be addressed and she is avoiding discussing them and for good reason. I think that Grace and Neil and are both avoiding a confrontation on the real issues because they are afraid whatthe result might be. Neil is hoping he can fix the marriage without confronting Grace. Who knows what Grace wants or thinks?
Thanks for a great recap. It was a pleasure to tweet with you tonight.
I am so glad the only shows on this list I recognize are BB and GOT.
Looking forward to seeing the gang back together! And especially looking forward to more Carol and Glenn.
I think you'll find that's Tim, not Tony who went to Russia.
Wish I could be excited. As usual Gibbs, this time with McGee, gets the most action packed dramatic story of the season while Tony sits in the office and clicks the clicker. Wish Gibbs, McGee or Bishop was my favorite. It really sucks to be a Tony fan. I don't guess he'll get much of anything again this season. All the good stories will go to Gibbs, as usual.
I hear you. ony's my fave too. I started watching for the Gibbs/DiNozzo dynamic that's long since been shredded and lost, sadly. But I'm hopeful about for this year about everything and that includes Tony's role based on various reports and cast tweets I've seen.
I think they barely had any scenes together in season 11. So much for "renewing" that relationship. As for this season, I expect zip for Tony. All they have is a new love interest. who cares? I want him to be a real agent again.
Now that Ziva is gone, Tony has nothing to do or care about.
Oh, I don't know... I just watched the first episode preview and it looks to me as if Tony gets to come to the rescue of Gibbs and McGee. So you may all be pleasantly surprised!
