I hate love triangles, so I was over it the moment it started. I said somewhere though when they were talking about some suprise for the finale concerning Paige and Walter that watch it be that Drew proposes to Paige. I mean to me it's easy to see that coming. Paige goes on cases as a "translator" between the team and everyone else. I mean sure cabe can do that but really does anyone think he would have the time with trying to protect the team and chase the bad guys. Ralph should be on her mind, but I'm sure when your in a dangerous position your probably thinking about getting though everything that you don't think about anything else. Besides most time when they take a case it doesn't seem dangerous until after they started it. (I mean they thought it would be easy and simple to protect Maya until after they were ambushed because of the mole.) And this sounds callous of me but to me if you start something you have to see it through until the end no matter what. Besides technically it's not like Ralph has nobody to take care of him, I mean there is Drew.
LOVED Mark Hamill (and, yes, loved the "I am your father" reference, even though it was inserted a bit clumsily) - He makes a great crazy, over-the-top villain! Eobard/Harrison swap was a great plot twist. And, yes, Eobard caused the crash - we saw the strip of spikes on the road just before the car hit it (though I don't see why it would have flipped). And I agree that the duality of Harrison is due to his lingering essence warrign with Eobard's personality.
I was very disappointed that we didn't get to see more of the couples intimacy class. That could have been so much fun to watch. Although Gibbs did say he couldn't watch it. The finger snapping was so annoying it was funny. Then Bishop and Tony kept doing it after they got back to the office. Having a 6 year old relative that is heavily into Frozen, Tony's references to it bring a smile to my face. Yes McGee did act like a bratty kid not invited to the party. But Tony does antagonize him trying to get a rise out of him. Even Palmer surprised me with his arguing with Ducky about the DNA testing. He seems like he has too much respect for Ducky to do even go there.
Paige goes on cases with them because she's part of the team, not sometimes but all the time. She keeps them in the realm of reality, because these guys really don't know how to relate to people, except maybe Toby. As to Walter and Paige, I don't think they will ever really get together, has Walter even ever had a girlfriend or relationship with a girl? Poor Walter, and Drew, well we all know he'll be leaving soon, people don't change that much. Wasn't around before, but now that he know his son is brilliant he wants him. Shame, shame.
I really liked this episode! It was so much fun! I laughed out loud when Tony ans Bishop was undercover. Gibbs and Vance watching was so funny. The case of the week was really good. Tony was a solid, agent while McGee acted insecure, which he often is. It was a team episode and everyone got to shine. Nice! Palmer commenting Gibbs in front of Gibbs was fun too.
Funny, "Real" SHIELD operate a lot like a Hydra weapon... To paraphrase Steve Rogers... Their justification is so small minded and honestly, scary and ridiculous. It's like they are supporters of apartheid or the nazi regime. Think of it this way, "Real" SHIELD don't want anyone who is not pure human, but they will lock up and use anyone who isn't "pure" for their own means, or kill them. This is all despite having glaring evidence that other "non- pure" humans and "aliens" are very much present on the Earth, and in the universe(s), and are equal, if not greater, than them. I'm finding this storyline incredibly depressing because of this... It appears that humanity has learned nothing from our mistakes in the MCU...On another note, the previous two episodes served as a set up for this and frankly, dragged a bit, and what a come back!?! Excellent episode that felt more like a movie than 42 minutes of TV.
"While I don't think it was Eobard's intention to take on anything other than Harrison's physical form when he sucked the life out of him, I am of the opinion that Harrison's essence was strong enough to linger and it lived beyond its physical body. Only time will tell if I am anywhere near the ballpark, let alone playing the game." This is exactly why I love Harrison Wells. (I voiced that opinion last week). It was the perfect explanation! I agree with you, Carissa, I think some, if not a lot, of the original Harrison Wells still lives on and shines forth as genuine caring and compassion for his 'people'. I am just loving this show, even though I've never read the comics!
Brandi's honesty is unparalleled in these housewives' franchises. It sometimes makes me grimace, but at least she is not a phony hag playing a part.
I'm late to the dance Carissa.........I always forget this comes on Monday and I caught it online last night. I agree with you in your review. Dylan just wants to have a family. Norman is jealous of his relationship with Norma. No doubt he will tell her about Caleb. As for Emma, I find it hard to believe as well that she doesn't see all the weirdness that is Norman. I think she does see it but she is so desperate to be accepted( she's weird too) that she over looks it. As for Norma and the Professor, I'm in fear for the professor.............and wonder if there will be a hook with either him or Romero. I can't say enough about Freddie Highmore........His performance so far this season has been even more creepy and he just absolutely nails it. I jumped at the scene at the end when he had snuck up behind Dylan.
I had thought McGee was getting better but this episode knocked him back down a few pegs because of his childish behavior........... I think I agree as well that this story should have been a two parter because there seem to be much more to tell and some of this was rushed.
