@Eula - You're talking about Season 3 Episode 7: "Shot In The Dark".
Loved the finale and Maddie's sacrifice, telling Michael she was proud of him, I felt some tears as Michael was realizing this was a final goodbye to her. Loved all the Easter eggs Nix threw in there as well. As for the end, I don't think anyone can say Fi and Michael are in Ireland. Remember the "Long Way Back" episode when Fi was going to leave Miami for good and return home? Then Thomas O'Neill happened and Fi's brother came to Miami to help out. Michael had to return to his Michael McBride cover, but by the end, O'Neill outed Michael as an American spy and both Fi and Michael were told they could never return to Ireland.
I liked this episode but it could have been so much better. Their episode that paid homage to Twin Peaks (Dual Spires) was much more clever and fun. At times it felt like there was just too much going on. They should have had Chief Vick in there, or even Ken! Would have been funny if Shawn introduced himself and Gus to each of the guests with Shawn giving Gus one of the many, never-ending false names he would use. I liked the essence of the Clue film and the intro was good as well, but James Roday is no Tim Curry. He ran around piecing the crime together much like what happened in the film, but it just fell flat on the show.
Excellent episode. Rick's speech to the group was great. In the S2 finale, he told everyone what they had wasn't a democracy anymore. Rick's realization that while he may be the leader of the group, he is certainly not the Governor. He wants everyone to have their say in what happens. Merle surprisingly was the voice of reason in this ep. He always knew that the Governor would be down for a war with anyone, hence the 'save your bullets' line the Governor threw around. He has also been wanting to just take out the Governor for a while now. Merle knew the Governor would not stop if Michonne was just given to him. The prison group would still be out there and still be a threat. Daryl getting angry at Rick, while I see it happening, I can't help but think that his anger will be more focused on the Governor. Regardless of what led Merle from Point A to Point B - the Governor was still the one to turn Merle into a walker.
Of course Ryan has a lot of hunches. He spent a good chunk of his life tracking Joe down and getting inside his head. He has a pacemaker because of it! With Emma and Joe hooking up, I see it as a power move on Emma's part.
@Watchestoomuch A group of serial killers all gathering together and getting along is far fetched? Who said this group got along at all? I think they tolerate each other simply because of Joe. As much 'organization' as this group has, it is certainly not without it's moments of hate, fear, lust, jealousy. Reminds me kinda like the Manson 'family'. You felt like you 'belonged' and 'mattered' when in this family which was wrought with plenty of the above problems. When it came time to kill, they did.
@ukchris: Basic human nature stopped when the walkers took over the world. People are now doing anything and everything they can just to survive another day, even if it means taking a life. It's either yours or theirs. Trust is also slim pickins' these day and maybe a year ago, Rick would have reacted differently. This is the now though, and there's too much blood on Rick's hands. The people he has grown attached to are dying or making too much of a change in themselves. (Like Carl.) He's lost his wife as well. They are running out of ammunition and food for the faithful few that are still around. Maybe that one guy could have helped, but he also could have done harm. Rick doesn't have time for 'maybes' and taking unnecessary risks. He is learning from the past.
A great episode and Michonne was a great add to Rick and Carl. Loved it how Rick automatically thought Michonne had a problem with the plan. She never said she did. Instead of giving back attitude, she quietly reassured him there was no problem.
@San - While Rick had his talk about hope with Morgan, he only did so because Morgan saved his life in the beginning. The hitchhiker? You are correct with using the word 'seemed'. They don't know him. In TWD world, the walkers are taking a backseat and the living are in the forefront with 'poses much threat'. If we have learned anything by now, it's that the living are far more dangerous. Walkers don't have hidden agendas. Only so much trust can go around, and getting emotionally attached to people can sometimes make for your own downfall.
Wow. A ton of hate for this ep. Can't anyone see that Harvey's big thing is trust? Harvey detaches himself emotionally from a lot of things. Mike is essentially Harvey's emotions. Harvey is who he is because the people he's put his emotions into have betrayed him in some fashion. His mother, Scottie, and Jessica put the icing on that cake. Jessica knows that Harvey could go elsewhere, but can he? He gets results but his manner of doing so wouldn't fly with others. Jessica knows he's good but his image is still tarnished. To her, he's an asset. To anyone else, a liability. Harvey knows this too. He's good at what he does for a reason though, I'm sure he'll think of something to nail Jessica to her holier than thou cross she's carrying.
What I got from the whole Harvey and his mother issues was that Harvey used his tuition to help his brother. Their mother then gave money to the brother, who paid Harvey back. Something like that? Either way, Harvey was crossed somehow by doing the right thing. Perhaps that molded him into the man he is at Pearson..Darby? Jessica..oh man, where do I begin? She's a snake. I suspect that for Harvey to finally get his name on the door, he'd have to do it over her dead body. She wedged herself firmly inbetween him and Mike. Blackmail doesn't look good on anybody. Her threat to Mike clearly backed him into a wall he couldn't break. I still don't get Mike and Rachel's scene. Rachel finds out Mike's been lying his way through everything, but that's attractive? Don't think she realizes just how many other people know his secret. It was a tense finale, and all that 'frozen assets' stuff was just a red herring for all the underlying deceit going on to make this merger happen.
@Wiglet Nothing from season 1 was brought into season 2 except for most of the actors. There was no Constance (miss her!), no mention of the murder house or the Harmon family. So no, that was not tied up. lol This season primarily took place in the 60's on the East Coast. The murder house was busy doing it's thing during that time.
