I agree with Ron, Jim, if he didn't keep reminding me that Claire wanted to go back to the 20th century, I would not even remember that part of the story. It's all Jamie and Claire and the clans for me.
Good one Hank! I loved this episode. Yes, the gas truck blew up but don't forget 10K conveniently found a couple of gas cans they then used to get the F out of Dodge. I think my favorite part was when Addy's baseball bat spike thing came flying back to her like she had a homing beacon. I was laughing at that. I'm intrigued by Cassandra's story and wonder if/when we'll get back story on some of the other characters. Like 10K. Where did he learn to shoot like that? And with a slingshot no less. Is there some superhero, supernatural stuff at play here? Or will we find out he just played a lot of Call of Duty prior to the zombie apocalypse. :) Looking forward to next week's episode.
Wow! That was the fastest and most productive couples therapy session I could have imagined. All Grace had to say in the waiting room was that she was awarded the Scholarship to Milan and boom, Neil is in awe of her talent, Grace suddenly realizes she is appreciated by Neil, and the world is a better place; she doesn't need Simon any more and Neil has her love back. What he learned being an escort works! The writers completely control the ebb and flow of the emotions presented in this series. I'm fascinated how they create the excitement and interest expressed by many of you, and Carissa, in this program. Each of you must have a reason why the subject matter has caught your attention so completely that you want to express your opinion about the meaning of a current episode and the future of the whole series. I can tell you about the reason for my fascination. When I was a teenage boy (yes I am also male) I was totally captivated by a short story. It involved a man who was captured in war, lost his memory, and recovered it 10 years later. He went in search of the woman he married just before going into service. He found her and stood across the street watching. The government had declared him dead and she had fallen in love with another man. As the soldier watched, she greeted her husband and children with kisses and hugs of love. What does he do? He turned around and leaves, never letting her know he returned from the war. This story had a profound effect on me, and I develop strong emotions whenever a woman gives her body and soul to more than one man, whether its in ignorance, as in my story, or on purpose, as in the extended affair by Grace. The reasons for Grace's unhappiness are not as important to me as the sexual and emotional acts themselves. How many of you would be interested in this series if Grace simply did what she was supposed to do and sat down with Neil, talked about their problems, and resolved them by means many of you consider civilized? The first shown sex act of Grace willingly being pushed up against the wall by Simon was the powerful image that created the real start of the series. Without the physical and emotional turmoils created, no one would care. That's what the writers and producers are hired for.
" Is she a mermaid ?" LOL I am also curious about Cassandra and her "big" secret, even if in that new-apocalypse-zombies world, I don't see how it could be THAT horrible ... the humor is what keep me here, because I'm not that crazy about the " long walks through Vancouver forest" type, like in TWD or "Revolution" ... I liked the dog story, tho ;) let's see what will happen next, I would like also to be "attached" to a character, because it's not really the case at the moment, I don't care who die or not ... except may be Citizen Z. Anyway, thank you Hank, great review, it's always a pleasure to read it !
It just seemed so mysterious to me... what in the world could she be? LOL You're right, I'm not attached to any particular character either. That's probably a good thing, we might have a whole new cast by the end of the season Ha! It's that type of show. As always thanks so much for your feedback Marion, you're the best!
didn't z-dog bite friendly-dog?
I thought that as well, sure seemed like it. Maybe friendly dog will turn next week? Eeeeek!
Carissa, in your review, you suggest that Grace and Anika have lost their self-esteem. My take is that until the last episode, there was no indication of any cause for that except the suggested cause that her mother may feel that Grace had failed her. Postponing her career to raise a daughter should not lower a persons self-esteem unless she was told by an authority figure or she felt herself that she had failed. In the last episode, she told her sister that she was a bad mother and wife, so that could lead to low self-esteem. In the final episode she tells the Zen master that she has beengoing through a period of self-discovery, so that is what led her to having an affair, not low self-esteem. As far as Anika, she is a-ok in the self-esteem department. She sold some songs and offered Mateo half of what she made to help him because he was going on the road. Being a man, he refused. That didn’t deter her. She bought a car and headed out to festival where Mateo would be playing. If there is anyone in this show to worry about, it isn’t Anika.

I agree with you! Grace simply wants and takes experiences that feel good to her. It's her wild side coming to the forefront with her complete agreement to let it out. I don't equate her actions with any loss of self-esteem. I don't even think self-discovery is in play; maybe re-discovery. She's always been this way; she just sublimated her true feelings for 18 years of marriage. Throughout the series she says "this is me", whether she's had sex with Simon (muddy shoes), or posing nude for Dylan and with her sister's encouragement, or telling Dylan about her college lap dance. Her marriage was probably more of an impulse decision when she fell in love with Neil and she kept her bad girl side hidden. Remember that her first encounter with Simon was at a club where she was letting her inhibitions go out the window. She was suddenly sexually attracted to Simon whose current date was annoyed with his interest in Grace, and the next day she decided to have an affair with him. She didn't know that he was a paid escort; she just wanted to let her wild side have an affair. I have no idea how Simon introduced her to pay for play. Maybe he gave Grace a free sample. Anyway, the developing relationship was exactly what Grace wanted and felt no real guilt since that was who she really wanted to be. I expect that her infidelity would have continued for a very long time.
Another blonde headlining a show??? Not again!!!!!!!!!!!!
I liked this episode a lot better than the pilot. But I'm fully in the cheesy camp. The second this gets serious, in outta there. The cast was wonderful in twitting tonight in particular Kellita and Michael (who did both east and west coast). I am curious about Cassandra and 10k/Jeff.
Really better than the pilot? I seriously doubt Z Nation is going to get serious, it's not in the show's DNA at all. What do you think Cassandra is? A mutant? Don't know how I made it through the East coast live-tweet, was nodding off hehe
I for one am looking forward to this. Hopefully she'll be much nicer to Tony than Ziva ever was. And maybe she can be his permanent girlfriend. I'd love for Tony to settle down and have a family.
I like Ziva but I don't care if love interest for him
