American Idol: The Top Two Revealed!

I really liked Clark at the beginning, but he has become so old-fashioned and boring that I really don't think I would ever listen to anything he would do once he's done on Idol. Now Nick has a Daughtry kind of vibe to him, and I think I could see myself listening to his music, like David Cook before him. Just my 2 cents. I think Clark lost some people a few weeks back with his song choices. They weren't bad songs, but Clark's unwillingness to arrange them with even a hint of currentness will hurt him, I think.

I absolutely love this show. I certainly hope it will be back for another season. I too wondered if Henry would become mortal again now that he has been shot with the same dagger? Meaning maybe the next time he is wounded it may really be his last? Also, how did Adam get that dagger? Was it the actual same one that shot Henry in the first place? I thought Abraham was watching it? I like to think that Jo is a smart woman, but I'm curious as to how that conversation plays out. Or does he try to write that off as being his dad or something? I just really hope we can see it all. My assumption is that if the show comes back, they will jump ahead and give us the conversation piecemeal through flashbacks, just as they did the Abigail story.

I LOVE this show. The writers did an excellent job of weaving together the story of what happened to Abagail. I disagree with your idea that it should have happened earlier in the season - I think we needed that time to see Henry's relationship with Abigail so that we were invested last night. I think the show did miss an opportunity to revisit Jo's question to Henry though - who is she to you?!?!? I REALLY REALLY REALLY agree with your assessment about why it maybe isn't doing as well as it should - file it along with Castle in the lack of promoting department. But the stories are well-written, well-fleshed out, well-acted and I really hope they give it another season. I am looking forward to the showdown in 2 weeks.

According to IMDB, it says he was in camera and electrical/cinematography. I'm guessing he was part of the crew for them. It lists death as Jan. 13, 2015.

Several things from this episode stand out to me. First off, Ben could be in real trouble now that Dave knows the flashlight showed up. Especially since he may be mad at being thrown out of the guesthouse and is now having breakfast with the detective. Secondly, the neighbor who refuses to be around Ben anymore clearly has issues. Next, they showed the kid again tonight who needs the computer to communicate - there's something there. Natalie being pregnant complicates matters. We still don't know that the receipt showed it was the same flashlight or not. And finally, they introduced a bit of backstory on the guy who gave Ben a job - I'm sure that will come back into play at some point also. They don't drop things in here for no reason - everything is calculated. I agree with you that the panic attack scene was very well done. I'm still interested, even though I would be more careful with the darn flashlight than Ben is being right now.

I can appreciate the need to set the stage for a good drama, but the acting was so flat, and I was so bored by the first 20 minutes, that I changed the channel and watched something else. Broadchurch and HTGAWM also have slow burn, but in an interesting and exciting way. This is a no for me.

I just got caught up (watched all 10 seasons - a lot of darkness, haha). What really stood out to me about the unsub was the contrast between how neat and tidy the upstairs was and the crookedness of the paintings on the wall into the basement - that was a cool touch. Also, I think the thing they weren't getting right was the intensity or "sincerity" of their screams. But seriously, as a parent, I don't helicopter at all but I would never let my daughter out at a mall with boys I've never met. Parenting 101 fail :) On a side note, I dislike the immediacy of the star voting system, especially on my phone. One wrong touch of a button and it's 3 stars instead of 4. Perhaps there's a way to require a submit before actually registering your vote? Just a thought :)

I love this show and I really do hope it gets renewed. I love the bits of history they throw around and Henry's being a stickler for detail (murder vs. assassination, etc.). One of my favorite lines was the throw away at the beginning where Jo mentioned that Henry would have had to live 6 lives to know all that he does, and he replied "No, just one long one." It is little things like that that make me look forward to Henry opening up and trusting Jo with his secret.

I can't believe there aren't any comments yet. This was an amazing episode. I loved the set-up, the story development, even the predictable but still creepy abduction of Kate at the end. The profiling by Castle was very good, and you could see when he struck a nerve and threw Tyson off his game just enough. Mosley's acting was superb. Oh, and that wink at the end. Anyway, next week's promo looks really good. I can't wait, and it's been quite a while since I could say I can't wait until the following week for any of my favorites lately.
