@anon--nope, not a new reviewer. I'm just finding that these first two episodes haven't been as awful as many last season, probably due to the fact that with Monteith's death, they've had to really pay attention to the series and rework the stories.
@osofine--I don't think Sweets is leaving the show. He was in the previews for next week's Pelant episode.
Regardless as to whether it was Conrad's father or grandfather who had Huntington's, that's not the sort of disease a person who carries it just ignores. It's completely implausible that Conrad would carry Huntington's and potentially pass it on to his son and just shrug it off like "Meh. NBD." I'm really, really irritated that of all the medical issues in all the world they could have used, they chose that one. The way it played out last night isn't at all even sort of realistic.
And I did hear that Charlotte lost the baby. I just thought it was sort of convenient when they realized the idea of her being pregnant was a dumb story line in the first place. And also mildly offensive to insinuate that she'd suffered no emotional side-effects as a result of losing her boyfriend and their baby. Maybe we'll get there.
First of all, I don't deign to speak for millions of fans in writing my reviews. But is it really unreasonable to think that we'd all want to see the close of the Pelant storyline, for one reason or another? I don't think so.
Yes, it was premature to say that this is starting out to be a mediocre season. I'll cop to that. But the show has lost much of its former luster. Something changed when ED got pregnant and the Brennan storyline was changed to accommodate that. I don't find this to be the gripping hour of television it once was.
I did actually hear them mention Buck and Wanda. I was paying attention. My point was that they could've gone as themselves but off-duty. There was no need for the cover identities.
The Friday night move is a death knell for this series. And it's time.
As for taking her into the cooler, I thought the entire point of introducing a hotel known for its discretion would be so that he cold take her there and tell her the truth under the guise of a getaway to mend their relationship. But nope.
My husband's comment at the conclusion of the episode was "HOW did the Marshall not know who Saxon was!? It's his job to catch wanted people!" So, yeah.
Dex's insistence that they go to Argentina is because that's where Hannah was supposed to end up with the boyfriend she testified against who jumped in front of the bus at the beginning of last season. I can't think of his name (and I'm too lazy to search, apparently). The two of them were from Alabama but they talked about having a farm in Argentina.
Dexter suggested Argentina because he knew Hannah wanted to go there.
I don't think the brain surgeon story is done. Something tells me that was all too easy.
@Emily--I wrote this review after watching a screener Showtime provides to the media. As such, there were no previews.
And finally, Mellie and Fitz don't have a relationship at all. That's why they're not in the running for best or worst. They have a tenuous partnership and that's it. They are equally awful to one another.
