I really love the verbal banter between the head Graysons - Conrad & Victoria... in the past season they were filled with so much hatred with each other which was always hilarious. Then they had to team up to survive, but now they seem to tolerate each other with this bemusment. Watching Victoria nag Conrad about answering the phone, who instead picked up his tea, and then she snatched the paper off him, brought everything back to everyday life where couples bicker about silly things... it was nice to see them so light hearted. I hate the Jack/boat/whatever storyline, despite all the hot actors in it. It just seems so completely irrelevant to anything else, and why would professional drug dealers want to make their job so complicated by bringing civilians into their dealings... just doesn't make sense! Love Nolan as ever!
Why are people offended by the Dog fighting scene? It was bringing awareness to a really brutal thing that goes on all the time, just doesn't get spoken about. They do the same thing with chooks too. It is a horrible thing. Tig's reaction to it was so beautiful....
Great episode!! Tig was so awesome since the scene with the dogs until the very end, he played it beautifully. And though Clay is evil I did manage to feel sorry for him... the look on his face when he realised he was being arrested, and Juice's face too... sad moment. Nero & Gemma together I love! I really don't think Gemma actually dobbed in Tarah, the whole show was setting it up to look like that, but it was too obvious, there's a lot more to the story. Jax has been a bit ruthless but think about it, he chose between Tig and Clay, he has to be this way, in this role... This is Hamlet... it's not a happy story. Beautifully written episode. Ps. the reviewed never mentioned Otto biting off his tongue!! Such an ewghhhhh moment!!
Jenny was such an important character in the first seasons... why didn't they allow Jenny to say something useful at the end?... Lol or anything at all in fact?!... I love how they tried to age Eric with his goatee... and all the other 'business men' of GG look like they are still straight out of High School 5 years on - VFX ppl cmon!! I think Serena has worn better dresses in her average night out... it didn't sit well, and also why on earth did they get married in that strange little living room, it was weird...I love Georgina, she was still awesome! Dorota is epic, with her vodka! I loved Blair's line, 'I always thought it was Dorota!' I'm glad it was Dan... that was cool. I like Serena & Dan and Chuck and Blair. I liked seeing Nate as a successful businessman at the end, not attached to a manipulative woman... ironic and all but fun!
Dan has finally become awesome this season!! He is funny, and real for once instead of making dumb jokes to compensate for his insecurity. He actually has them all genuinely nervous, becuase he has become so unpredicatable, and an actualy adeversary, instead of someone none of them take seriously. I don't think he hates them, that's why he wouldnt move to 'Soho; and start his new life, he is intrinsically tied to all of them.... but he wants to be taken seriously and respected ont heir level. He basically said as much. Gossip Girl is either Dan or Jenny for sure...!!!
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...
