I am glad that some one is still getting something out of this show. However, two seasons is more than enough time to wrap up a storyline. And we were promised cameos of Brenda and Fritz, so it's not too much to ask that the producers come through.
Carissa, you hit the nail on the head!! I've been having this discussion with myself since this summer. I'm starting to care less about the team. The dynamic they had during The Closer and the first season as Major Crimes has disappeared. And yes, Rusty's case and storyline has carried on for way too long. At this point, I'm only watching to see how that particular story ends. Also, we were promised guest spots by Brenda Leigh and Fritz. From what I can tell, there are only 3 episodes left in the season. If the show doesn't pull me back in, I will definitely be deleting it from my DVR line up.
Where's the like button? Ditto, Bennington! You tell 'em!
Tonight's episode answered a question for me. Although, I'm not sure that I had actually asked it yet. While, I understand the upset behind Cary and Alicia's decision to break away from LG, I never truly understood Will's anger. And anger is putting it lightly. He has been mad - burning, fighting mad - at Alicia, and I never got why. I got that the underhandedness of it all stirred his ire. I got that he and Alicia shared this history, and he never expected that she, of all people, would do such a thing. However, his anger came from somewhere much deeper that I just did not fathom. But tonight, I got it. He loved/loves her. I always saw their time together as just a fling, nothing more. She released and also paid Peter back for his affairs. He...had fun. But that's not accurate. Will's feelings go much deeper and, probably, back farther in time than Peter's. He is genuinely hurt by her actions. And because he seems to be perfectly inept at expressing his feelings, Will is acting out and soothing that hurt in the only way he knows how, through meaningless kinky sex and attempting to conquer the world of law firms. Also, he's trying to hurt Alicia in any way he can, which is about as grade school as one can get outside of yanking her pony tail. This realization has mellowed my growing disgust of Will. However, that's it. He's still a huge jackwang.
A wrong turn was taken with Kalinda's character some time ago, and the writer's are somewhere lost on the south side of Chicago trying to get her back to a good place.
Jason O'Mara creeps me out, not his character, but him. He has crazy eyes that freak me out. That's why he plays sociopaths so well. Anyone else remember him in The Closer?
Lemond Bishop usually votes republican, but something drew him to Peter this last election. Teehee!
Seriously, what's the deal with Marilyn. I'm completely lost on what she's supposed to be bringing to the show. Clearly, that baby can't belong to Peter, but it's existence is as annoying as she is at this point. I'm assuming there will be a payoff sometime in the spring, but the storyline is not compelling enough for me to wait for it, even if she does name the baby Peter. I also think she's riding the crazy train.
The show feels Fringe-y. And this is not necessarily a bad thing, but the build up of likenesses began to distract me. The atmosphere made me think the show's setting was the world as a result of the Fringe team correcting the timeline. The building where they found the detective and the bomb, I am positive that it's the same building that was positioned on a fault line between the parallel universes(I get that they are using the former Fringe set). The head missing its body and the mastermind and team looking for it was so Fringe-y, it was ridiculous. The recall machine in Chinatown might as well have been a sensory deprivation tank. Should I be able to make this many connections?
I didn't dislike the pilot. I know where the story and the characters stand. I just need a little more to sustain my excitement for the show.
Hi, Nick. Thanks for the reply. I don't disagree with any of your anatomical explanation. I only stated that I heard Juliette say something different.
However, when I stated that your theory doesn't explain the other times that Nick "died," I was remembering when the homicide detectives were interviewing Juliette, and Nick "died" while listening in on the conversation, nor does it explain the incident while he was talking with Juliette in the living room. At those times, he wasn't in situations that had him near death.
I enjoyed this episode because it was different from the normal wesen that we encounter. Mermaids are always cool. And I love seeing Luke from Joan of Arcadia.
"This ties in to the doctor saying that Nick is in great shape aside from his very slow heart rate" ---I heard metabolic rate, not heart rate.
Your theory about Nick doesn't explain the other times that he's "died."
I fully expected Leonard's hands to end up around Sheldon's neck tonight.
Remembering something I read about the Adalind story, I believe the bloody tear was some type of hormonal deal from being pregnant - and specifically pregnant with a royal baby. Perhaps the baby knows his father died, sending a hormonal surge through Adalind.
Theory on Nick's zombie-fying: He's not completely cured from the double shot of blowfish-wesen poison. There's still some in his system. So he's 2/3 human/Grimm and still 1/3 zombie.
