Who is the actor that plays the Colonel in Afghanistan?
I know, I know, exactly FOUR years later! Potentially binge-watching Season 1 to re-familiarize a friend with Season 5. Even now, it's breathtaking. Amazing how young the characters looked just four years ago, particularly Tyrion...
Points to understand/remember about Ragner: He is supremely intelligent and his motivations transcend that of the rank and file Viking. He was not particularly religious and not superstitious He doesn't attribute his rise to power to Odin, but to his response to circumstances. He takes the long view. He understands that his curious longings and motivations are in sync with where history is compelled to go. He told Athenstat that he didn't know yet why he didn't kill him at first encounter---.yet he knew intuitively that this Monk would be important to him on many levels. He told Athenstat that he WILL take Paris. Ragner's near death experience showed Athenstat in the light, Odin in the dark. This along with Folki's folly and motivations (which he knew in advance would be a disaster ) confirmed to Ragner the growing certainty that the flow of history is with Christ over Odin, as Athenstat's friendship was superior to his Viking relationships. So faced with his mortality he chooses heaven. Who knows, Ragner, looked healthy again when he raised up from his baptism, maybe he was healed. And always working things on many levels, a Christian burial inside the wall would be very helpful and timely as well.
I cannot stand Cornell no matter how this plays out. Christy is an odd duck and I am not sure why she even stayed in the marriage at all. For some odd reason at first I thought it was the young daughter then I went to Dave as he is an screw ball for sure. Now I am back on the young one again as she just seems fixated on her Dad and them being a family. Just a gut thing which I might add is not always reliable LOL
Done with Once Upon a Time. Love Regina and sometimes Gold/Rumple, but one character does not make a show... There are a few times that I like Emma, but it's only when she's interacting with Regina anyways...
For me Walter while a genius is missing those pieces that allow him to react to things as most would so when he does react say as I would it does not really annoy me/if he did I might wonder. I figured something would happen to cause Paige to go just as the end gave her a kind of perhaps plausible reason to not. I wonder though if that also might have us hanging to next season kind of will she or won't she. I hope Sylvester continues to make progress as I am beginning to like him and for a minute I was not sure if I could. Yeah I know that they have me suspend an awful lot of reality but so do other shows and I can live with that.
I like the episode but found some of the stuff a little too TV'ish. I mean the show seems to be taking real issues with Cyber stalking and what can be done with technology p,etc but puts that uninvestigated reality to it- like the dead for 3 days. The character that really confused me was the spider. Seemed a bit to much focus on the spider and why? I am enjoying this series though.
Holmes & Watson are a winning combo -- they never disappoint. Love that they're getting some solid veteran actors (as L&O did for decades) like Anita Gillette and Eric Bogosian who add to the series.
That Brandy is very good at playing the victim card. For her all it takes is a shallow apology which she never means and suddenly her behaviour is explained away until she does it again, then it's like rinse, repeat . She's a patheic excuse for a human being, the lowest of the low & I never use this phrase White trash, but in this case Brandy is indeed white trash
I love Jensen and jared and Supernatural over them all.
