The most disturbing part of this episode was the black shirt with roses Rufus humphrey was wearing in his final scene! The most disturbing thing on this season, is that Dan Humphrey has actually become my favorite character! I love his ballsiness, and finally taking control of his life! Nate and Serena won't ever get back together... It's Dan and Serena for the final, just like the beginning!!
Grace, James and Tani are all Australian actors... funny they are the triangle.... It is really a shame it is cancelled so soon... hoping for the new Lost of a sort! I agree their are one too many plots though, and some things are just plain ridiculous... the Island mercenary would have been killed in the beginning when he first shot one of their men... they have gained nothing from letting him live. Its a shame that they didn't put more effort into the overall politics of it, becuase what is happening back home is really interesting and doesnt get enough air time in the hour. I think the Lost formula was awesome to just focus on one or two characters an episode and really get to know them whilst moving the story along... this show is generally a little too all over the place.
I think when Clay was leader and Jax was VP in a weird way there was a balance... Jax was there to counter attack Clay, question his moves and motives. Now Jax is the leader and basically no one will challenge him or question him. When Clay used to make an obnoxious request of the woman, Jax would be there to second guess him, challenge him... but, now it's Jax in this role and there is no one to challenge him and any of his decisions... There is no more balance
I agree with your whole review this week! It is so sad how Jax is treating his mother, I really like the way she is when she's with Nero..... They cannot take Juice from us so soon after Opie... 2 of the sweetest characters in one season is way too much! The last 2 episodes have pretty much been the Tarah-Gemma-Jax and Clay show... I am really starting to miss some of the other cast members.., and a bit bored of Tarah's continual grimace... also she is becoming a doormat, she does everything Jax asks her now without question. It's kind of like she's lost any self worth, and she puts what ever he wants above anything she holds dear... career, morals, even the kids (she will forgive Gemma becuase Jax tells her too)
Dan used to be the most irritating character on the show... now the only thing keeping the show watchable are Georgina and Dan, and all the amauing interactions they have with the other characters. As if any dad would let his 17 yr old daughter date Nate, and as if any girl could just keep being with a guy who she found out slept with her mum...Blair and Chuck were ok, until tonight, but this scheme was just plain bizarre...At least Rufus is predictably Rufus, and Lily predicatably Lily. Bart is just a real jerk - I can't believe a father could treat his son with so much hate, and total misunderstanding.I look forward to the return of lil J and Erik for some old school moments...
As someone in the exact same age bracket, and life stage, I not only found this episode super funny, but also so totally relevant... All those stages. of various relationships were handled really well and totally relatable. I think every girl has being in Jess's shoes when she had tears in her eyes and he asked if he should leave - she is so totally relatable as a character. Great episode!
Nolan looked so suave tonight! He is so wonderful. And Emily seems to look more beautiful each week... fauxmanda was glowing too! I wonder what the man trying to by Jack's bar is after... It does seem weird that mother doesn't recognise daughter... they are alot more similar looking then fauxManda. I can't wait for the scene where Mason gets properly taken down! Going to be awesome! A bit of a tumble to Ashley wouldn't hurt either... I LOVE every scene with Victoria and Conrad, they have this razor sharp wit, and this awesome chemistry... they are so fun to watch!
I think Abel will need a blood transfusion and Wendy will have to give it, bring her back in the story again, plus a custody claim. I think Clay ordered the hit on Jax to make it look like a 9er attack. I agree with some other people that the car scene was contrived and too much in an action packed series... there are so many complications going on. From the minute Tarah offered the kids to Gemma, there was a bad feeling, just waiting for the slipper to fall....
I like watching Dan join the dark side! I think its the first time in the whole series I haven't wanted to throw a shoe at him during his over analytical, always procrastinating screen time! He is acting not talking... awesome!Ivy and Rufus are a bit creepy but its also funny! The Serena and Blair story is just so boring and done 100 times already... everyone knows that they will make up in the end. I wish they would focus a bit more on Chuck and Nate's stories this season... we already endured Blair's random French marriage for like the whole of last season, plus her taking over W and whatever else... who cares about her latest fad... of course she will end up with Chuck, so it's a bit of a pointless airtime. I sort of like Serena trying to better herself. Wish they'd focus more on that too. Georgina is the best character ever! More Georgina!!!
I'm so disappointed in this review. It was such an amazing episode with so much happening and you chose to focus 3/4 of your review on something so minor, it barely warranted mentioning. Yes they killed an innocent woman... they have done that countless times, when Gemma was on the run Tig killed her father's carer, when Donna died, the daughter of Pope... this is horrible but not new. You didn't even mention the fact Clay is faking his recovery speed, you briefly touched on the death of the Sherrif's wife, and Unser finally confronting Gemma. Not too mention, the suicide was far heavier for me to watch then the death of the nameless wife. - maybe its a women thing. Plus all the power plays between different characters were just flawless! And the gangster meeting when Jax, Sais, 'We should do it more often" was priceless!! The subtle mentoring of Jax by Pope is amazing to watch... How can you leave all these things out Matt! Look at the bigger picture! This is still such a brilliant and intricately written show - things don't happen in one episode - they develop with time!
