Farewell Taraji, fantastic acting and one of the absolute best characters on TV today. I haven't been this upset over a major character death since...I can't even remember when. As others have said, Taraji's Joss Carter is (was...awww man here come the watery eyes) the heart of the show in many ways, I will be in self-imposed exile from the show for a while until I can stand to watch it without Carter. Much as I love all the actors, this one hurts :( The moment in time between Carter and John was well-done and fairly nuanced. I didn't feel as if it was a sudden jump into something sexual or more intimate as such, more a mutual expression of gratitude and caring between two people who have saved each other in more ways than one. It never mattered if the 2 characters of John and Carter were destined for a relationship, their friendship was always the point, that's why I'll have difficulty watching without her as it isn't always done so well in shows, they usually choose to go all of one way or the other. Bravo Taraji, you kicked butt with a conscience, you will be missed!!!!!!

You summed up the Will/Alicia issue perfectly Aykme :) Alicia's self-denial knows no bounds, she may regret it one day when she has a moment to think. I was always a fan of Will/Alicia however I think I'm a Will kicking butt fan more :)
Thankfully Nathan Lane as Hayden is back, the voice of reason amongst all the pettiness. Also a welcome return appearance by Owen, a favourite of mine, what he said to Will summed it up so well.

Well, this left a bad taste in its wake, too many characters 'out-of-character' too quickly. Kurt's the only non-gameplayer in town...if there are almost no character's left with redeeming features going forward, I'm out :( On a lighter note, Will's win re: the gun case felt justified. Florrick & Argos can't expect smooth sailing as a matter of course, their departure from Lockhart Gardner was undiplomatically handled by them, they chose to play dirty & Will and Diane can hold their own once war is declared.

Words can not describe my joy at FINALLY having Warehouse 13 back, 6 months is a travesty!
Fantastic episode and had a crazy fangirl jump up and down when James Marsters appeared, loved loved loved the homage paid to his role as Spike in Buffy! The Professor drunk, longevity & vampires, beautiful women as his weakness, "Don't let the world ruin my big exit" hehehe brilliant, looking forward to more :) WElcome back Warehouse 13, don't leave me again...ever!
Fantastic BN season finale as always! Surely Fiona's reaction to Michael's news is not surprising? He has chosen to get sucked back into the vortex that is the CIA...she is devastated and feels betrayed for good reason! He made another martyr/saviour decision but not solely for them, for himself as well. Namely, he's taken the Matrix 'blue pill', he really can't see life outside the CIA, sigh. All the hard-core loyalty his team has shown...they'd rather be locked up than see Michael jumping back down the rabbit hole...grrr Michael, you frustrate us yet we love you...:)
I know I've said this before however after this episode I can't help saying it again: Ray Stevenson's portrayal of Isaac Sirko is sublime...thank you Ray for gracing us all with your presence!!
I am so absurdly happy Burn Notice is back, it's amazing how hollow my tv viewing has been without it! Fantastic 2 episodes! Kenny Johnson's Tyler Gray is (was?)a character worth seeing again as he is well-portrayed as a version of Michael before he was burned...even Madeleine subtly acknowledged it in her questioning of Tyler at the dock. His answer that he was very good at what he did was on par with Michael's in the past. I would love to see Gray somehow survive as I think he would be a complex addition to the team, welcome back Burn Notice, you have been missed...
Andrew Lincoln, I worship and grovel at your feet, always...a stellar performance I will never forget and that's from someone who watches too many shows for it to be a healthy habit! I admit I found Lori irritating in the earlier seasons however she grew on me this season, she was one tough woman, and loyal in her own way - maybe not in the 'nuclear family' traditional way, something which seems to have upset a lot of viewers. Come on viewing public, it's a crazy world they live in, someoone cheating in the past shouldn't be an issue when you need all your energy to survive, take a deep breath and move past it...Sarah Wayne Callies gave Lori dignity and strength in her last moments and I for one am glad she did :)
As per the reviewer and the other posters for this episode, agreed about 'development 2'. Unfortunately, Renard and Juliette are not projecting fantastic chemistry together and it is being drawn out too long, not in a fascinating, bated breath kind of way either. It baffles me why Nick didn't continue to investigate Juliette's attack further after the cursed cat died, I can't be the only one who thinks that's out-of-character? Grimm grabbed me from the pilot episode, however the few episodes are starting to worry me, Miggymigs has a point...please please right the wrongs, I don't want to see Grimm leave on an average note!
