Hi LL - actually, this show is for anyone who loves solid writing and a great mystery, paired with terrific acting... Something I've come to expect from Haven after three stellar seasons that I have watched faithfully and given my full support across a lot of media. When a series is created under the shortened format often found on cable, in this case 13 episodes, even two without a lot of forward movement and redundancy can feel stale quickly. If you've watched all other seasons of Haven, then you know they hit the ground running and don't look back. We've had two eps in a row very similar in format. I expect more from Haven.
Joey!! Didn't you watch our Comic-Con coverage when Kristen confirmed Sendhil would be back? She left me speechless! ;-)
@Eustace Chapuys - Thanks about the opening line. Sometimes knowing what's coming isn't a bad thing if you're still shocked as it's happening. How they're carried out can make just as much of an impact as knowing they're on the way.
Also funny - I was texting with my friend last night that the only movie I can stand with any (and I used the same word!) Shamalamadingdong influence is Devil - as I watched it for the umpteenth time. It was the only time I didn't see all the writing on the wall and was truly moved. I think it's because he let someone else direct.
I think the deal with the house is that Bunchy listened to Mickey. Mickey who has been away from distressed housing and the like for the last 20 years. He listened to a shark of some sort and Bunchy got caught up in a very bad, sleezy deal.
The difference between THIS season of Major Crimes, last season and its predecessor, The Closer, is that Major Crimes was better able to find that mix of drama and comic moments within the same episode to bring levity to some very deep situations. They're losing that ability now. Where were the comic moments in this episode, outside Taylor looking like he didn't know his job? That was only funny because he really didn't earn his position and it should have gone to Brenda. Major Crimes has the ability to do it right, it's just lost focus.
Lydia can like sex all she wants. Just not with people who are hell bent on destroying her friends and her town. I'm pretty sure Stiles is available. And willing. Or probably any other guy in that high school. That she chooses the WORST possible candidates, willingly and knowingly, makes her an idiot.
Privy to the information
@michelle nice, insightful comments. I had forgotten about Derek's blue eyes, although I did read this was the first year eye co,or REALLY means something. The birth versus being made theory is a good one.
@highland0wolf just because Gerard wasn't at the scene in the season finale didnt mean we knew he survived, nor did we know Mr. argent was keeping him safe. That's hardly the only place his disappearance could have gone. As for Blake, I don't care the the first time she saw Derek he was turned. To then be in a room with him alone was a hasty and unsafe bet, he even said so himself. While I don't want there to be something up with her, I won't be surprised if there is.
@R you're welcome.
@marissa thanks for your comments. They are always well thought out and meaningful and give me ideas to chew on while we wait for the next episode.
@llk_vomit I saw more if an improvement than you did, but geez those fist five weeks were tough to sit through
@sara since TW isn't a porn, any time they stripping off their shirts and getting it on I'm just going to refer to it as sex. I'm not fooled that if he didnt think Aidan was crawling out of him it wouldn't have been. Not that we would have been privy to the I formation.
@michelle very good, insightful points. Forgot about Derek's blue eyes, but I did read this was the first season where eye color REALLY matters
Hey Tamara - I agree with you and the natural born leader being important to the alpha process. It seems there is more to it since actual physic changes occur as a result, and also because if there is a pack of alphas and they are all following someone else, wouldn't they then naturally lose their alpha status? Who are they leading? Isaac has made it clear for a while he considers Scott his leader, and Boyd was certainly calmed by him. I hope there's a bit more to it than a promotion.
@isoron, first of all, the season is 24 episodes, and will be cut into two 12 episode arcs. That will greatly affect the momentum so four episodes in it does matter what we are seeing in the season so far. Since the second 12 arc films in late 2013 we can assume it will be a few months in between, pausing the action. Additionally, I said "now that the virgin sacrifices are over" which assumed you were watching and knew the druids were on to a new trio to kill, which in this case was related to the military. At the time the first kid was killed Stiles still thought he was a virgin, and thus the quote was still funny as hell. I love these characters too much to see them so far apart.
