Loved the episode. If we don't learn about and care for the characters then the show loses much of its punch. It was a bit jarring to have such a relatively calm episode after all the action-packed earlier episodes of the season. But I'm fine with that. And I wasn't bored at all. The time just flew by for me.
I'm guessing that the military looks at anyone who's significantly ill as high-risk since you become a walker if you die. I don't think they're immediately exterminated or anything like that but I'm expecting something similar to a concentration camp to prevent any escapes. Correct me if I'm wrong but this was the first episode of either franchise without actually seeing a walker.
I fast forward through all commercials; and I avoid all previews for next week's episode regardless of which show I'm watching. That said, I figured that the place that would one day become the Batcave, was going to be at least part of the paternal Wayne's secret. Kind of an uneven episode but I'll still be watching the second season for the ambience, the acting (or is it overacting) and fun. Not a show to take too seriously.
It's already been announced that Bran is on hiatus this season.
This had me rolling in stitches. If the episode has any weakness it's that you already have to be familiar with the setting and especially the characters to fully appreciate it.
I think you summed things up well. I have no preference to how much A.J. we see in each episode, so long as the story doesn't suffer. In this episode, A.J. was not that much of an asset other than something to keep the other characters involved.
I predicted way back in season two that the show would end with Dexter dying and his sister avenging him and taking over the vigilante business, complete with Dexter talking to her in her mind the same way that Harry talks to Dexter in his mind. Now with Dexter loosening his code, falling for a questionable woman, becoming a less involved father and stepfather... perhaps the show is starting to try to make him increasingly unlikeable so when the time comes to finally kill off the show's titular character we won't be quite so shocked. Just my two cents.
I must have seen a different episode than some of you. I thought last night was so boring and dumb. Heartfelt scene between Terry and Arlene? Yawn. And yes, that darn efreet sure looks like the Lost smoke monster. I guess Luna is too good looking to die. I was hoping to trim this all too large cast some and have Sam take the role of a stepfather. Funny how the stars take more than one bullet to die but the extras don't. Sam and Andy teaming up. Another yawn. Alcide and Rikki? More yawns. Lafayette? I wish this was a yawn but it was just painful instead. Jason discovering why his parents died? Because of Sookie's bandage? Finally a plot point that moves things forward some. Jessica/Pam/Tara/Hoyt... did we learn anything here that we didn't already know? Seems like this is Sookie's season for one-liners. And as for the Authority plot line? OBVIOUSLY Bill/Eric/Sookie was going to help capture Russell and survive. But who DIDN'T see episodes ago where Salome's true loyalty lies? As a whole I am greatly disappointed in the so-called Authority. And who didn't guess that Russell wasn't silvered after all? Geesh. Major yawns here. Yes, I like Russell's character but we've seen all this before. This was a TERRIBLE episode overall. And I consider myself a fan of the show. I'm starting to hear the Jaws them here.
Great final episode. I don't think this is the last we've seen of Alicia. She'll be seen again in the flashbacks. As for who called Reese at the end; I don't think it's Nathan. When you see all the computer bling sometimes it actually says something significant. At one point the machine felt Nathan could be a threat. And at the end it clearly indicated that Reese was an "asset" and that it contemplated what its options were now that "continuity of operations" were in jeopardy. goo.gl/8VeVt
Color photography has been around for a while; Kodachrome was available in the 30's. The recently uncovered photos of Hitler celebrating Christmas were all in color. No, the color photo doesn't bother me. The skydive somehow being performed without any eyewitnesses to identify Neal is what bothers me. Oh, and Neal still can't tell Peter about the treasure; at least not the whole truth. It would be the end of the show. That doesn't mean that Neal won't be willing to do anything else within his power to help find El. And yes, this is certainly the motivation needed for Mozzie to return with a vengeance.
