I am more interested in your skipping past the most significant, at least to me, part of the episode -- the emergence of Joan Watson as more than a match in moxie and grit for Morland Holmes. Not only did she calmly counter his attempt at flippancy in saying he was an enemy or adversary to his son with the more accurate but deadly descriptor of a terrible father, but now she has put him on notice not to mess with Sherlock or face her wrath. Love it. Grrrr.
Have you seen Hunted? George has left that Alias role far behind her, and Hunted was a smashing success.
Since when was Mellie in Fitz's class at law school? That was Hillary Clinton. Either she was in his class and he knew her or he met her when she was a secretary and his father set them up on a date. Can't be both.
A couple of things. First, I do not believe Clara has any connection to River. None. And the girl in the shop was most liely Sally Sparrow. Second, The Doctor loves a mystery and Clara is a mystery times 3. He can't resist her, but not because he's in love with her. Third, The Great Intelligence is a call back to a foe from a Classic Who season. Far back, in fact. Its appearance seems to be well connected to the 50th anniversary of Dr. Who, and Clara's identity is most likely linked to it more than anything. It seems that the three Clara episodes thus far have progressed backwards, i.e. she starts out this time knowing nothing about the Internet, but will wind up as a Dalek/computer genius. Stay tuned, because nothing looks to be as simple as Doctor Loves Clara. Nuh-uh.
Jimmy and Karen? No way. When not writing marginally OK songs Jimmy is too selfish, egotistical and entitlement-ridden to be anyone's love interest, not to mentioned seriously in need of a good 12-step program.
TVangMarch 6th, 2013 11:23 AM What an intense episode, and a great finale! White Collarâ€™s writers always seem to outdo themselves around the finales, and I was shocked to see James shoot Senator Pratt. During my commute in to my job at DISH this morning I was watching the finale on my iPad, and I was yelling at the screen for James to turn himself in. I have the new DISH Anywhere app installed so I can stream all the recorded shows from my DVR, and even live TV, to me wherever I am with internet access. Gee! And you can deliver a commercial at the same time!
Alicia is definitely not in love with Will. Attracted? You bet. Using Peter to relieve her sexual tension? Absolutely. But the name of the show, in case you have forgotten, is "The Good Wife." Alicia is now chiefly a pragmatist, not a romantic, and for purely pragmatic purposes she is clearly invested in being Mrs. Florrick. In fact, it was made clear to her that she was being offered the sole partnership going on the strength of being married to the putative next governor of the state.
No kudos for that brilliant young actor who played Little Abby? Seriously, what a talent. She got PP's mannerisms and body language to a "T" and her way of speaking and communicating was so believable as the child who would grow into the Abs we love.
Cannot agree with the reviewer's strong distate for a Peter-Alicia reconciliation. Th Kings' portrayal of this marriage in all its ramifications is interesting, plus Peter has tons more chemistry with Alicia than Will does. Will is a good colleague but a totally meh love interest as far as I am concerned. And if the model for the Good Wife's marriage is that of Bill and Hillary Clinton it should be noted that however it may look from outside their relationship, for them it works and is based on an abiding respect and love. Peter, like Bill Clinton, had (or has) a hard time keeping his fly zipped but no trouble identifying whom he loves.
As to thinking Jane would never make tea in the victim's house, this episode was a direct call-out to the very first episode of The Mentalist. That first-ever show began with Patrick Jane walking into the kitchen and making not only a cup of tea but also a sandwich from out of the crime victim's refrigerator.
