I felt like the Hayley/Elijah hug was almost a 'goodbye' from both of them. That each realised that perhaps with her releasing her family, things will change for them. While she was happy, i think the look on her face when they hugged, and how she held on to him spoke volumes about these two. And lets face it, at this point, Elijah is in love with her. So, angst for these two, hell yes. But ffs, can they kiss soon?
I forgot ... I really didn't like JJ getting killed. I liked his bizarre character and will miss his showing up now and then. Besides that, I hope like h*** that they're not resurrecting Red John or his surrogates or some worldwide cult of billions upon billions of loyal murdering followers who will no doubt take over the FBI. I hope not!!
I thought it was completely acceptable protocol to have left Fischer because he was going undercover and her cover was blown. Even she understood afterward and shrugged it off. Did Jane know, though, that he was going to get onto the compound and so have to dump Fischer but didn't tell her? Yeah, that's Jane - better to get forgiveness than permission.
I also don't see that it would be in character (or skill level) for Jane to get into the computer system. That would be the kind of thing he would get someone else to do for him. I think, whether we can believe it or not, that we're supposed to assume he's just that good.
The reason people give Joel hate is because he just came in there out of nowhere. We haven't got to see any character growth, we don't know how he and Zoe met and how everything happened. Usually, when a new character is brought into the show we get to know them and slowly see them get to know everyone else. Because Joel came in at the 3rd season premiere, after a 5 month gap in time, we missed the whole introduction thing. We saw Wade and George and even the other minor love interests get to know Zoe but Joel was just suddenly there. Like a traitor. If he had have been slowly brought in, things might have been different. Also he is just boring. Yes he treats Zoe right, but he has nothing else really going for him. Nothing exciting ever happens with him. It was okay to not make Zoe immediately with one of the former characters but the writers could have introduced Joel much better and got rid of him sooner. And they only would have been dating for like 4 months when s3 premiered and they already were live together and constantly say how much they love eachother. No one cares. Zade were together for a few months and they never even said they loved eachother (excluding the season 2 finale when Wade said he loved Zoe.) I can't wait until they get rid of Joel. He's just annoying. It's ruining the show for me.
I didn't want it to be over either. Such an amazing show - where the characters themselves were just as important - maybe more - than the case they were investigating over the decades. The writing was brilliant, and the characters were amazing and well-acted. If Breaking Bad set the standard for series writing, this one set the standard for anthologies.
Rust and Marty's discussion about Rust's tendency to "see things" kind of surprised me. It's possible they discussed it before, but I didn't recall it. Rust describes it as something that doesn't go away or get better - leaving me to believe he's suffering from a mild form of schizophrenia. Yet another layer in the onion of his character.
What an amazing show.
Where's your review TV Fanatic??? I thought about writing one and submitting it to you, but you basically haven't even bothered to acknowledge that this show is back...
Great episode! Loved every bit of it :)
Maybe Neal isn't back in Storybrooke and couldn't go after Emma because of that? Remember Belle telling him they would find a way to find Rumple? Maybe these two - during the year in the EF - separated from the group and were not effected by the new curse.
Absolutely looking forward to what happened in the EF and what will happen now!
I have been so hopeful that EJ & Sammi would be the power couple that I have been craving on a soap. Lots of money power and passion...but now they are being torn apart yet again. This gets old. Maybe John Black could have regained his fortune and comes back powerful and tries to woo back Marlena. Right now everyone is too broken, its tiring. I miss a couple we could count on..Bo and Hope or even Tom and Alice. I wish soaps would get some of that passion back. Like Fifty Shades, it's what we crave. No just sex but power...money and sometimes used for good...like Kiriakas giving Nick a good shove and put him in his place. I am disappointed EJ couldn't do it......
Another excellent episode, especially after last week's disappointing one. It had everyhing we love: Steve/ Danny bickering after Steve asked Grover to take care of Danny's mom, we had Jerry helping Five O again and humor he brought and there was action and some martial arts ass whooping. Crime of the week was excellent - story about Chinese spy sateliite proved to be more complex with Steve's life and service to US being pararrel to the Chinese agent service to her country - by the way the chick was badass and she even killed her former fiance. We had some nice action and Steve agin proved his loyalty towards his country. All around it was the best episodes of the season for me. Bravo!
My only complaint would be again about Melanie Griffith - she is terrbily miscast as Danno's mom. Fortunately she will leave in the next episode.
