While Louis and Katrina were amusing it rubbed me the wrong way. I get why Harvey, Donna, Jessica, and Mike are the way they are with Lois. It's complicated. Some of them communicate a certain way there is a history, good natured teasing, filling respective roles, sibling like jesting with the nobody messes with my annoying brother but me...rooted in respect thing. Katrina is new to the game. Respect the pecking order. Hell despite everything even Mike has to respect it to some degree. So I kept thinking who the hell does she think she is? And have at least one person leave Louis alone. Still don't care for Rachel though her relationship with her father was interesting and it was nice seeing her interact with Harvey for a change. LOVED the Harvey/Mike scenes Harvey /Jessica scenes and Donna. All of them were so humorous.
@youngman your post amused me to no end and I hate to say it but I concur. My sentiments exactly.@KE for me personally the problem I had with TVDs pattern of black witches was the fact that witch became synonymous with supernatural slave and it went unaddressed. If they gave a reason or an iota of backstory as to what the correlation is it would have been really interesting. But they didn't and then to make matters worse they out of nowhere threw in a random white warlock that came after Elena that time and injured mayor Lockwood by sending her tumbling down the stairs with his powers. Can't recall if he was Elijah's warlock or Klaus' I think he was Klaus. Then they threw in Esther but I got the impression she learned from the black witch with them.So they set up a precedent than stopped it all unexplained. I'm appreciative of the Hispanic actress but I hate that they set something in motion never explained, then conveniently dropped it
Agree with the review and @Joeful. I hear you! Psych major myself. I'm a total psych nerd.Typically I like seeing DID stories where the alter is making up for something the host is lacking. What happened to J Cole where his mind felt compelled to protect him with the likes of Ian? Ian seems like an immature frat boy. Maybe the idea being Jason needs to loosen up aand live a little but why is Ian so hellbent on actually destroying Jason? I like the idea of them complementing each other mord, of them having this temporary truce and benefiting one another reluctantly. OR let Ian be as pure evil as they want us to believe but aren't showing us I thought it was fun and the actor is good. Tough night though. Up against Scandal and Elementary. They have to polish a few things. I agree
This was a pretty damn good show! They didn't overdo the 80's thing where it felt campy, they set the groundwork for the series and gave us enough character background for us to know and sympathize with the enem ...I mean with the leads and managed to do this without suffering from pilotitis. I love that Phillip and Elizabeth are of opposing opinions and I love that their opinions aren't conducive with stereotypical roles especially for that time. Phillip is the one inclined to have his emotions get away. He's more confused, more settled in, seems closer to the kids and after so many years distant from their cause and mission. He wants the American dream and got lost in his undercover role. Elizabeth is all country and pride and distant.I love that we got to see why that is and we better understand her character. After 15yrs they're finally at a place where they might actually love each other and now the stakes are high with the neighbor. Very enjoyable.
This point where they would die for each other. The rooftop scene was incredible and their silent agreement not to mention it again was awesome as was the Reese /Bear reunion. The team dynamic has never been stronger and was showcased well. I admit I didn't get why Kara needed John but she had an unusual fondness for him and may have thought she could recruit him for this new big bad. I love that there are so many big bads being juggled. She may have been eliminated but now we have a bigger mystery to solve. It wasn't as tense as the previous episode or as cohesive as far as its flow but it was still a pretty solid and enjoyable episode for me.It was pushing and setting pieces up for bigger moves.
I'm surprised at some of the reactions! But to each their own right? :) I loved this episode. I'm a sucker for character development and dynamics no matter how minute or nuanced and this gave me some great little moments. The slow building friendship between Finch and Carter. For a while he wasn't a fan, bitter from when she got John shot, but this season they've had their own little burgeoning friendship. His teasing her about her date or the concern he had as he coaxed her from her battered discombobulated state post accident.The way he enlists her help. Also Carter And Fusco. She is still reluctant at times but they always have each others backs. They're own dynamic duo. Carter and Reese continues to be intriguing. Her trying to save him. His thanks to her and Fusco. She is Reeses moral compass. The reverence and mutual respect is fascinating. Obviously Finch and Reese was fantastic to watch. Knowing they've gotten to this point
I think this show is finally hitting its stride. It started at the end of that one episode when Sherlock sat with Joan and really became something by the Moriarty episode. Their partnership finally feels organic and real and equal. You finally sense that they are fond of and like being aroundeach other even though both of them avoid saying as much or rationalize it away. I'm really loving that and Lee and Liu have a great chemistry. They play them beautifully without relying on the typical sexual tension on most shows. I love the development with Sherlock and the captain. It wont be swept under the rug or forgotten and I love that losing that trust really bothers Sherlock. Underlying daddy issues manifesting in that projection onto his boss. I think Sherlock already knows about Joan. Don't forded it being an issue. Loved Clyde! :)
Huck. I love Huck. I love the ease of their relationship. He's the one that always gets through to her. He's the keeper of her secrets and she his. I'm a huge Olitz fan but shipping isn't my thing. The most fascinating relationships are the unromantic ones and Oluck is my favorite. The love, devotion, loyalty they have to each other is twisted, dark, but beautiful. That was one of my favorite scenes of the night. I also love the Mellie /Cyrus relationship. They speak of Fitz as though he's their kid. They have a partnership and devious and diabolical dynamic. Mellie was fantastic in this episode. Her speech about fixing Fitz that story at the obgyn. Great stuff. The elevator scene with Charlie and Hollis did take me back to Billy Chambers. Putting all the pieces together this was a spectacular episode indeed. Dying to know who put the hit out.
This episode was incredible and this review was good too!Olivia truly does catch s lot of heat from the fans that I can never understand. This show portrays people as the complex enigmas that they are. Everyone is morally compromised or morally grey. In doing that they give each character a sympathetic streak that makes them likeable in spite of their actions. I think a while back I was explaining that I love Olivia Pope because she isn't perfect and I never believed she carelessly did things. So I loved that this episode showed this. Showed how it catches up to her! And can we talk about Olivia and her men? The two that are in love with her didn't quite know what to do but wanted to make things better. Cyrus, her father figure, let her know that he'd fix things for her and then told her to snap the eff out of it. Harrison always loyal let her know that she's still a good person and she needed that reassurance. And then...contd.
-Sweet.-Tough call but there are three. The first being Abby snapping at Gibbs. Never happens. The second being her speech to McGee about not being enough. But the clincher was the end with her and Gibbs. Their relationship is my favorite on the show. They make me smile, and make my allergies flare up.-The flashback/present transitions weren't always smooth and the flashbacks were vague for me but I still loved them.-I don't know. I just like them. However they end up.-I suppose its fair to say McGee.-don't know.-not covered but the young girl who played young abby was brilliant!!! Mannerisms and everything were perfect! :)
