Incredible episode! Hats off to Chris Gorham for q job well done directing and his acting was incredible in this episode. Auggie is my favorite character but I found him to be even more riveting than ever. I loved the faith he had in his friend and the lengths he was willing to go for her. You cannot buy that sort of breathtaking devotion. That is what makes their relationship so amazing. I even enjoyed the bit in her dream sequence about it not being their dance or their time. A lovely nod to the Auggie and Annie shippers out there without tiling up those fans who simply enjoy their deep friendship as id. I found myself sort of missing Simon as well. I also enjoyed Joan in this. I'm always fond of her maternal ways regarding Auggie and Annie both. While so many aspects of Lenas actions seemed implausible, it didn't interfere with my enjoying the ride. I loved the nod to the pilot's perfume moment with Auggie identifying her scent. Fantastic.
I look forward to the callie and Derek bit if its anything like the intriguing relationship between Derek and Christina when she was suffering from ptsd. I still could care less about Arizona which translates to me not being remotely interested in calzona. I'm still on overload from the overabundance of screentime they had two seasons ago.
Returning in Owen's body. I don't know what to think about that! I loved that Grayson finally said it but it almost felt like it came out of nowhere because they haven't been getting much focus or even feeling connected. I haven't seen much of the friendship they have coming thru so I almost forgot that he was kind of into her. Yeah the kiss was a bit of a miss, I didn't even realize that was what they were doing...I don't know, and Owen walking in then. I just cringed during most of that. I love this show and the characters. There were some great moments in the finale but I think my biggest problem was it seemed choppy and incohesive. It was like they ran out of time telling the stories or dawdled slow playing all the storylines and then remembered they only had one episode left and rushed everything into the finale. I look forward to next season.
This show has always had a campy feel and cheesy moments but I found there was an abundance of them in this episode and not always in the best of ways. I found both the court cases were rushed. They were I interesting in their own right, especially the intelligence one, but they weren't fleshed out enough and were resolved too quickly in favor of getting to the "more important "happenings of the episode. Luke reinserting himself into Jane /Debs life again after lacking presence for most of the season was contrived. Real Jane was an interesting development and she wasn't nearly as pleasant. Don't think I'm going to like her. I haven't a clue why she wouldn't go on and be happy and I don't understand how she could say deb screwed up her life. Her returning should be interesting, how she returned with that button again was uninspired and Fred, why so reckless,?
Gabriel Mann all the way.
Hmm and Harvey 's weakness is...the other three members of the fantastic four ( Mike, Jessica, and Donna) .
That was easily the best episode of the season thus far. I wasn't a huge Simon fan though I found him more intriguing towards the end, but I felt sympathy when he died. My annoyance with Simon was more so my annoyance with Annie for falling for him in that way that she does. I'm not the least bit surprised about Lena. She's cutthroats a renegade and her uber feminism grated my nerves because she had a way of putting other women down in the process . Annie was the up and coming and Lena couldn't lose her reputation to the next generation of female spies. The intensity of this episode was insane and the turmoil of the Annie and Auggie dynamic was riveting.
I agree on all the points. An A+ season for sure. Although I have a tough time choosing a breakout character because season two did a fantastic job of bringing Donna, Louis, and Jessica to the forefront more than they were in season one.
- Andy and Nick reciting the oath.- nick and andy. He has easily become one of if not my favorite character on the show.-always- oddly enough I felt for a while there their relationship was a very unorthodox but cathartic way for both of them to get through it. Of course that was when their relationship was some weird cross between frenemies and siblings. Then they kissed and dov got beat up and its bad.-she's best as a detective and I like her working with Luke. He doesn't coddle her like the others and she needs that.
