So where is my avatar and how do I get it back? This was one of my favorite episodes. Lots of fun to watch along with underlying drama to keep us tensed up to know what's next. I really loved that Pete and Samantha showed up to be part of the scam. I knew it was Samantha the minute she appeared on screen. They are such a great couple. I hope we will see more of them so we can understand more of Jane's past. I think that past has a lot to do with his intense fear of losing Lisbon. Not just the loss of his family but some childhood trauma that has been hinted at off and on. So we have now settled Abbott's problem. What remains is Lisbon's brother Stan's loan shark problem. I'm wondering if there will be a trip back to Chicago to deal with that and with it a possible opportunity that allows Lisbon to have a law enforcement job she loves and relieves Jane of his fears. Beyond that, there is the matter of Jane's servitude. Are they going to simply ignore that? It seems so. Of course, with Abbott's high position in the FBI there's not doubt he can clean up Jane's "criminal" past in an FBI way just as Jane cleaned up Abbott's "criminal" past in his con artist way. One good turn deserves another and I am sure Abbott is up to that. That leaves Jane's wedding ring, which - finally - got some attention. I'm assuming Jane leaves it on as a connection to the one time in his life when he had a family to love who loved him and he can't let that go until he is able to put another love in its place. And he can't do that until he resolves his fears of losing that new love. If Jane and Lisbon get married, the ceremony might include removing the old ring and putting on a new one. If they really do kill off one of the main characters next week, it will have to be in a way and for a purpose that is essential to bringing the TM story full circle. I hate to think it but the most likely character would be Vega. The others are all too essential to the crime-solving aspects of the show to let any one of them go. And Vega could pull off a sacrificial ending well with her character already being shown as eager to jump into a situation and take chances. We'll see. Doesn't leave much for the 2-hourf finale with not more hanging threads to tie up. Maybe they will do some kind of retrospective on the series. Not only entertaining but good for DVD sales to latecomers to TM.

I sincerely expected the mark on the arms was only going to be a thing for the "LARP" episode, or at least by this many more episodes into the show's run. Also, thought maybe they would send one of the Charlies off to Oz to save Dorothy or some of the other citizens (The Munchkins, anyone?), rather than join them back with each other... Yeah, hurting one hurts the other; I get that, but Chadlie is your friend as I recall, so why force the Good stuff back with the Bad? She could end up in jail, ruining her life, or something, due to something the Bad part (that was briefly its own person) does. (Sorry if I got a bit too "Dr. Phil"-like there.) Either way, still hoping Charlie/Felicia leaving alive with her usual departure line means the same as prior chances of a spin-off.

I really like the intelligent humor that this show has. Having Amy as a neuroscientist in real life really adds to the show. She really knows what she is talking about.The show reminds me of type of humor on Gilligan's Island when the Professor would say something scientific and the other characters would just look dumbfounded.

Scandal Season 4 Episode 10 Review: Run

I saw the Ian thing a mile away. He was the only other person in the ep. He had to be the boss. All a bit too obvious. I will say that the warehouse surprised me. I think the actor who played Ian gave it away for me. I've seen him in so many villain roles that it was odd to see him in a short cameo. Didn't make sense. Then when he was probing her for questions and dragged away and 'murdered' but u don't see the body? Dead giveaway. Seen this play a million times. I found the ep very boring.

During the off season I had forgotten how great this show was. Then this episode came and BAM - it's all rushing back. I often think, when watching this show, what a toll this life must be on married spies - knowing that part of the job is to provide "honey trap" duties on behalf of their country. Phillip and Elizabeth both carry on caring for each other, each knowing that the other may well be screwing someone else the following day or night. Makes me wonder what the real world spies went through. It certainly adds a level of complexity to the job….

Sounds like these commentators didn't actually watch the film. "What's the prob, Bob," didn't have a few hours to spare? The film is in my top 10, it really is well worth the time.

Yeah that promo for next week's episode was chilling. And did I read it right? There's only four episodes left? I really have no idea how they're going to wrap it all up. Should be fascinating. I want to see Jane and Lisbon ride off into the sunset but…..that isn't often how these things turn out. As for Jane's worry for Lisbon: the pain he still feels about the death of his family is still pretty stark. Yes, he's of new love and happiness with Lisbon but it does not negate in the least his worry for her. And ultimately for his own sanity were he to lose her. The man still has some horrific demons to fight. Remember when he could never sleep?

Suits Season 4 Episode 11 Review: Enough is Enough

Good ep and the emmy/oscar goes to Jessica/Gina. No apology to Louis & she took his gun. I like her storyline but not sure she trusts Malone. Louis the tazmanian devil is good-nerve racking & fun at the same time. Mikie & Harv have difficulity fully accepting their short comings & wrong doing. So why not blame Jessica for Mike taking a job at the firm when he knows he shouldn't and Harv hiring him---yeah-let's blame Jessica. If that's what it takes to move his storyline along so be it. How long before other partners/assoc notice Mike doing paralegal work & Assoc scraped from his door? Jessica telling Harv he couldn't act & he's pretty stupid-still ROTF.

Well, looks pretty clear where the storyline will go from now. With all of this merging going on for so many episodes, tonight was the first time we actually heard about the other twin not being completely dead, but somehow living inside the other twin's body, which holds two souls. It's completely obvious that Luke was a great person, considering he sacrificed himself for both of his sisters, and now it seems that Kai will have to deal with half of himself being good while the other's still a psycopath, kind of like Damon. Maybe when Bonnie's back there'll be a love triangle with her, Kai and Jeremy.

Good thinking! This would be a good twist for the Kai problem. Of course they could have ended the show tonight the Delena KISS when the sun exploded behind them. No one cares about the rest of the characters. Jeremy is leaving, if Bonnie comes back she only has Damon - what a triangle.
