Great episode. So glad they got Monroe. Now, Nick's girlfriend is a hexenbiest. Will it just come out like it did Friday? The look on Renard's face was priceless.

I agree, I sort of wish they could have left out the flashbacks and maybe only had the Maseo walking up to Oliver (where we only all had reasonably guessed) and then the very last scene to just play it up, but I think it was sort of a two fold thing. One, I don't know that there is a lot of the Hong Kong story to tell, I almost feel like Maseo and Tatsu were always meant to be more important currently, but they needed a little history there for the audience so have been weirdly sparse or too much with it. Second, I think they really liked the device they used in the Climb of just those random shots of Oliver climbing. They may have been too much here. I disagree with your take on Felicity's reaction, she was, and to a certain extent still is, in denial. She is lashing out at the wrong people and projecting. Its totally a normal reaction.

I think Margaux should know what Victoria did to Emily/Amanda when she was a little girl. She should also know she sent Emily up to be killed, but her son got killed instead.

I do not particularly like Miss Bunting. She seems bent on throwing mud in the family's face. Whatever is said, she manages to stick a pin in it. Just like Lord Grantham is an aristocrat and has aristocratic ways, she has them also and she is not an aristocrat. She seems to try to make Tom feel less than in the family. She needs not to come for dinner again.

I like the show but I keep waiting for some kind of answer as to why these people came back. To me,Preacher James is a phony, holier Than though type. Why is that branch on his back. Also, why is that little boy so hard headed, they told him to stay in the house. No he runs outside and tells his grandmother everything.

Daniel, Aiden, and now Ben, am I the only that thinks Emily just like men she doesn't have to look down to? :P

Resurrection Season 2 Episode 13 Review: Love in Return

Resurrection is an okay show, with a really cool premise. For the following reasons however, I don't see it "returning" for a 3rd season. In real life, if the dead started to return in a little village like Arcadia, U.S.A., it would clearly be the biggest story on the news of all time, all the time - i.e., including a constant (and massive) media presence (example CNN) throughout the village. I never saw even one journalist covering the story in Arcadia at any time during either season 1 or 2, not even a single local reporter. I think that blatant missing "reality" (i.e., that the media was never anywhere to be seen) was just too much of a stretch for too many viewers to stay invested the show. My other thought is that the "returned from the dead" themselves were simply too sanitized, i.e., were not creepy enough to hold the interest of enough viewers beyond the first few season. The producers should have given the returned a more creepy edge - including in both their physical appeance and their actions. The deputy's deranged returned brother at least had a little creepy (read, "not quite right") edge to him. I think all of the returned should have had more of that "creepiness", including Bellamy and 10 year old Jacob.

Me, I am glad the returned were not too creepy, as I am getting tired of zombies chasing people all over the television.

...fair point, indeed I was not thinking full on "Walking Dead" creepy, just "something a little off about them" kind of creepy.

I hope that Clyde does not end up killing Victor. It could happen.

Great Review! Right on point.
I really like the show, but they not giving any answers any answers at all is just shameful. The show had such a good starting point and the first season was really good. The 2nd season was good as well but there were to many returned, there should've been much more focus on the central characters.
But a really strange thing is how the viewers just dissolved. I mean ABC didn't put much effort in promoting it, besides those couple of promos announcing Michelle's character coming.
I'm glad that they gave us some closure with Bellamy opening the agency for the Returned and the happy family settling down. If S03 somehow happens think it will be a summer show or something.
