Incredible episode. I love that John's subconscious knows that he is an asshole. I hope that it means he's humbled himself a bit and won't be as much of a jerk as he's been, but call me a pessimist, I doubt it. I feel like that is exactly how it would have ended up. Regina's death broke my heart though. Tough scenes including when they took Daphne away. Daphne's sexuality was interesting, them exploring it because it's an underlying thing with her. Bay's chaste thing was fitting as well. I loved that she and Emmet still found each other.
I agree Angie and Junior have the worst bit. I impatiently wait for the camera to get off of them whenever there time comes. It's a waste of Britt Robertson so far. I'm loving this show. There was another miniseries I watched a couple years ago about people, strangers and "the program" that this reminds me of, but of course this is ten times better. It's going to be fascinating watching these people unravel and lose it. Much like the officer who at best should be locked away so he no longer poses a threat or kickstarts the mass panic and survival mode sooner than they can afford, and at worst...they may have to eliminate him. I'm loving Barbie and the kids. Best shot of figuring stuff out. The Rev and co...wow! What sort of illegal activity involves a reverend and how far are they willing to go to keep it secret?
And made a valid point about Daphne benefited more because she's more oral. John is always insufferable to me. A jackass to the hilt, but I seen that ending coming a mile away because he was a timebomb the entire episode. It was interesting seeing him and regina have it out. To be fair he despised regina before he knew about what she did, and he only confirmed that she and many of us were right and he would have taken both girls. He was pretty much saying that from the beginning of the series. Ass. So I wonder if their relationship will change since she's the one that saved his life. Although part of me is wondering how they'll make his falling out her fault. Some of the soldier storyline isn't deep enough for my taste but like that bay and ty are closer. Angelo is the master networker but I hope all this doesn't backfire.
I'm not deaf but impression of this particular situation is that Emmett was raised to be proud of being deaf, by both parents. Almost to the point of considering anything else suggests that you are somehow not proud of who you are. So then he has his fickle father, if I'm being perfectly honest saying after 50 yrs of being deaf and fine, now he wants a CI most likely because his new gf has one. I think it's a combination of things for Emmett. Is his father not proud of who he is? Is he considering this just to impress a woman? Is he doing this for the right reasons? If he at 50 still struggles with his deaf identity than what does that say about Emmett in the future? On top of that his father gave his mother full custody which is like a rejection so Emmett is probably feeling as though his father is completely disassociating himself from emmett. Then Travis says he's considering it after what happen at the carwash which to emmett is another silly reason. But at least Travis is younger and makes a valid point about Daphne benefiting because she's more verbal.
New guilty pleasure. I'd love if it were Serita but it would seem too obvious. I never would have thought of Rico at all. I've been suspicious of Archie since the beginning. I think he and regina were fooling around behind Lacey's back. The new development with the necklace has me certain that Danny is hiding something big, because the sheriff isn't asking the more important of how Regina got the necklace to begin with? I think there are many sides to regina that even her friends didn't realize and her killer may not be Danny or a fellow classmate at all. I have this love hate thing with Lacey. She's trying too hard to be bitchy but you can tell it isn't really in her which makes those times when she's being particularly bitchy (which was frequent in this episode) somehow more irritating to watch. I think the sheriff would be more tolerable if he didn't break rules to make his case. He isn't honorable which makes him more villainous than antagonistic. One dimensional too.
They upped the stereotypes and cliches. I had a feeling that would be an issue from the moment I heard about the concept. That aside, it was fun. All and all I enjoyed it!
I can't believe Daphne didn't realize how much her and John's politics differ. He's a republican to the bone. Where has she been? This isn't news. Emmett is being grossly underused. I miss him.
Why the pic of Bay and Ty? Not that I have a problem with it.:) I felt for Angelo. I'm far from a neatfreak but I do get really frustrated when the person I'm living with leaves their shoes in the middle of the floor! Hate it! I'm either stubbing my toe or tripping and falling while carrying something. And I don't know a single person short of sn entomologist who wouldn't be pissed about cockroaches. When you're staying with someone, you have to be considerate. I didn't think he was being nitpicky. I love them living together though because they all deserve that time.I like the Brit. He's a jackass but a fun kind. I thought Bay was too far out of line with how she handled Toby. Whether or not he's mature isn't the issue. Its he and Nikki being compatible. They aren't. He doesn't respect, understand, care about and even mocks her faith. Her faith is what she puts first. She's inflexible in regards to it.I can't believe Daphne didn't realize how much her and John's politics differ. He's a republican to the bone. Where has she been?
I was intrigued. Fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you look at it, I did not read the book so I can enjoy the show as is, without comparing it to the novel. I definitely will keep watching!
I'm excited. I love Scott Foley and I enjoyed Jake as a character. I was so sad when he ended up in the hole. He was a great third point in the love triangle.
