This was a very beautifully written and acted episode! The wedding night scenes were mature, loving and sensual. Couple that with the more light-hearted flashback scenes and the actual wedding, and The Wedding was pure, unadulterated enjoyment! Happiness doesn't last forever, or even for very long on television, and undoubtedly this lovely couple will have tragedies and pain to deal with in future episodes, but for one night, it couldn't have been more perfect!
I certainly hope Gus meets up with the rest of thegroup. But from the coming attractionsit looks like he is going to me up with the restraint strigoi warriors fromthat lawyer lady's house. Which isn't sobad. Curious to see how that is allgoing to work out. Seriously dude yougive the best reviews. I love readingreviews from someone who actually loves the show as much as I do.
It just did not make sense that Ray would allow himself to get arrested when he had so much to do that night! And where is bunchy? Was Frank's wife in love with Volcheck? Where does cookies hostility against Ray stem from? He has no idea that he was fingered in the murder by Ray's daughter. So I don't understand his hostility. This episode left just too many questions unanswered. Some things just didn't even make sense, like the motley crew of people that attempted the robbery. But I will be waiting with baited breath for the finale next Sunday! Because I love this show...
Great episode, and I agree about a lot of things you wrote, Hank ! I also was really worried about Zack, and more than annoyed by Mariela; it's not her faut, of course, but still ... Gus finding his mother was heartbreaking, and I wish he will join our gang soon. The tight passageway was also one of the most scairy part for me, specially with Fet stuck, and this strigoï coming after him ... eeeekkkkk !!!! This image was terrifying ( and cool ) :) The last image, with the nest full of strigoï, reminds me a bit of "Buffy" finale ( yes, I am a Buffy fan, sorry ;)), and I can't wait to see what will follow ... thank you for your review, and BIG hurray to your Harry Potter's references, I'm a fan ( I even visited the studios where Harry Potter's movies had been filmed in UK, really cool ). ... and, also : I definitly don't care for Eph and Nora ... I wouldn't like for Zack to be an orphan, but appart from that ... I just gave up on trying to like them. Give me more of the monster, the hoodie guy, Fet and Abe !!! :)
Did anyone notice when discussing the intern, Eli alluded to Peter as having at the very least a one night stand with her?
As much as I have enjoyed the show over the years this opener was just too far fetched and nearly comedic to me. Mara/Audrey takes down all these men? Come on already and how dull to see it repeated on Nathan was just hilarious and boring. Rather than spend so much of the episode on showing her as a badass female (we get the idea so move on already) it would have been more interesting to see more of the scifi aspects of the troubles explored. This 26 episode season will get rather dull and boring and if this is the best they can come up with for a season opener.
Love this show and the cast. I was totally surprised with the arrest of Cary and the way he was treated, being help without a phone call, guards singling him out for abuse. Don't know if this is just Illinois politics but there is a lot of dirty deals going on in their dealing with opponents. I don't really see how Alicia could shake hands with Finn, he wasn't just doing his job, he was delighted in one upping Alicia. His role really turned me off and I hope he and Alicia don't get any closer. It seems the Feds will go to any lengths to get Bishop, even lying and presenting false evidence. On another note, come on CBS, once again no definite start time for The Good Wife and I couldn't watch the new show, Madame Secretary due to stupid football. There has to be a better way to handle your programming. Just shows what a great show The Good Wife is or the fans would have already given up on trying to watch it,
Fet testing a 'UV Light Bomb' in Satrakian's Basement. The initial test fails with Fet surmising, 'Go with what we end up with and hope for the best.' Satrakian confirms that was his method for the past sixty years, I then realize this might be the reason the show's overall plot was so weak.
Things look pretty bleak, don't they? Ray is a smart man - I don't get why he had to keep attacking his father after police warned him (and after which, especially, he looked like he was backing down). Why would he put himself in that situation? I always thought of him as a more cold and calculating guy - especially when you consider the lengths to which he went in hiring Sully to kills his dad. That scene just doesn't make sense. Why is he adamant about allowing Kate to burn him? She even came to him, and he blew the opportunity to sweet talk her into relenting on her pursuit (although - here maybe he was being intelligent, knowing that she has to "do her job", whatever the consequences). And we haven't forgotten about Cookie either. How does this all play out for him? He's waiting on Ray to bring him the tape ( why do they keep calling it a "tape", when it's nothing like that? It's a recording - but in everyday use, people everywhere keep calling it "tape" and "taping"). What's Cookie's first move? My guess is that he'll pay a visit to Abby, looking for Ray. Abby will misinterpret this, and she'll shoot and kill him. That puts her in jail - because she won't be able to claim self-defense. And that's when she blows the whistle on Ray for keeping the murders a secret. Hey, a girl's gotta eat, right? Got to keep hearth and home together too, if only for the sake of the kids at least. She'll roll over Ray like a steam engine. Man, the next episode can get down so many different roads.
Thanks for the review. I am surprised that just when I think I can't detest Virginia and Bill anymore, they manage to take it even farther the next week. The only good thing about last night, and I also don't condone cheating, was that while poor little insecure, impotent, Bill, was weeping in Virginias arms, Libby was truly in a brief moment of sexual bliss. I also don't think she was seeking revenge against Bill, but I believe she's aware of the love affair. The smug, totally disrespectful way Virginia treated Libby, during the matching uniforms scene, was terrible. I still believe that Virginia, is just as self centered, as Bill. Now Virginia is suffering because her ex has pointed out that she's neglected her children and their step mom, is taking over. I say ,good for her ! The only thing that could have made it even better, is if her ex had said something to Libby about her husband sleeping with Virginia. The step mom's zingers were great. Loved it when she told the kids, that this was a very special time, when they can sit down with their mother for a rare dinner together, as she served them on paper plates. So at a time when Virginia is hurting with the possibility of losing her children, what's her priority? Babysitting Bill. I am not sure how it played out historical, but I laughed when the attorney told Virginia, to be careful not to open a can of worms, because it's kinda to late. Hopefully the ex filed for custody of the children based on the fact that their mother is having an affair with a married man, and the fact that she's on tv talking about sexual things that would surely impact her children in public. This is the sixties.
