*sigh* Wanted to find out what would happen between Kate and Ben now neighbors. That would have been an interesting dynamic. The series just took too long to have Kate figure out what she wanted.
Alicia should have played 'hard to get' with Maddie. Let's be friends with nothing much in common is too easy. Alicia played along because Maddie was the money for the campaign as she put it. Maybe Maddie is genuine and just wants a friend, that's probably what Alicia kept thinking. Something was fishy from the beginning when Maddie gave Diane the impression that she would let up on the building as the new owner. Alicia should have been a tad more curious to avoid this dilemma and now she has to play along or be played. Clearly all Alicia wanted from her was her money and to keep her happy, those relationships go sour fast. Especially if you clearly have no real friendship beyond the ice breaker.
Alicia's 'friendship' with Maddie Hayward was awkward here. Did Alicia truly say her life was boring? Anyone would grab at the chance to write an article on her. It's still odd how Alicia didn't stick to her word by not bringing up campaign talk. Hayward has this strange way about her. You can't tell what her intentions are with Alicia. People have become friends for less, but it just seems like they don't have much in common. Their conversations tend to be tense at best, that it just puts you in a statue. Not to mention how Alicia tried to manipulate the conversation by quashing concerns made my Eli. Pretty unnerving way to have a friendship, especially if it involves money. What would be interesting is if she knew Alicia in the past, but Alicia forgot somehow. What would happen if Alicia wants out of the friendship? Would she pull out as a sponsor?
*sigh* Always hoped that PP would supersede GA.
Also loved how Michael felt so attached to his jacket being on in the beginning. Kept wondering why he would be so jittery, so fun when we got the reveal.
Could he have laced up her shoes with any less rage. Olivia could have done it herself. As much control the president may have, it's good to see Olivia overpower that with her strength and to not be easily controlled. As for Abby and David, did not like that pairing so much. David suggested getting information on Olivia from the 'inside', which may be tough if he is using Abby for that reason. Was that bar meeting coincidence? Doubt it. Olivia keeps almost everyone in the dark, including Quinn.
Who else thought the high school girl eating a sandwich was younger Emily at high school. It's funny how we have grown accustom to that kind of storytelling that the writers can still pull one over on you. It got a bit annoying when she attempted to ridicule the girl, but eh. It's tough separating Hartley from his action packed character on Smallville, he seems more laid back. People have been making many comparisons to Grey's Anatomy, but we get more of a look inside Emily's head. We become her eyes, ears and thoughts. Is it just a stereotype of most teaching hospitals, or do all interns learn the way of the hospital like this? If so then this pilot is being used to introduce all characters with this tactic. It does however make you want to see how Emily deals with her awkward adulthood teen life. Do we ever really grow up?
Bay has been the outsider since the beginning. It was unfair that Toby's gambling was swept under the rug and treated with a small lecture, but Bay was scolded by her actions. Bay did wrong by stealing that money for her friend, but she also has a big spirit and a lot of love in her heart. Her friend was in trouble and Bay was frightened for her safety. In return none of that was recognized. How can a child learn to become their own, if everything they do is puked on? The treatment her parents gave her was unspeakable. Bay had all the best intentions, but her actions were misguided. It is heartbreaking that Bay suffered that kind of humiliation. She has a desire for art and her parents treated her as though she were indifferent. Worse yet, they don't even realize how horribly they treated her. Mainly because they just don't understand Bay. How is it Daphne learns more from Regina and Bay has no real parent to turn too? Truly awful.
The Zara story was okay, until she asked Bay for money. It was fun having Bay have a friend that she connected with. It did move fast, but sometimes friendships can be like that. What was naive; Bay expecting Zara to pay her back so soon or right then. How would Zara have made it out without Bay? That tainted the friendship. I was also hoping since Bay had more rest time without Emmet, that she and her ex would reconnect, but she flat out used him. Like Zara used her. It seemed more like Daphne and Scuba had more of a connection in the beginning. After hearing that chef slept with your best friend's mother, that should turn off anybody.
1. Alicia and Cary scenes were very genuine. Their relationship has transformed from the bitter sweet. 2. There was a reason Kalinda married him and another why she left. Was he abusive? There is just too much uncertainty that goes beyond sex for these two. Maybe this is where we discover how 'Kalinda' began. 3. It seems pointless. All Peter did was tell the guy to back off, he would have clearly done the same for his own son. Maybe it may work in Peter's favor next time their paths cross. 4. The Trustee is simply there to help the business and he's good at his job. There is no friend or foe in this picture, just someone for the business.
