I have to agree with @Wednesday on this one with regard to BaTB. One thing you can discover by heading over to Twitter to see people from around the world participating in the conversation and that is they've already seen it. The competition from The Voice is already too much, but add in a similar genre show with Sleepy Hollow that isn't available early through other means, and it's obvious which one people are watching first. Moving #BaTB to Fridays wouldn't hurt because the fans love it THAT MUCH - as long as it airs BEFORE the Canadian showing.
Thank you, Betty Eagan - fixed. No need to yell. :-)
For everyone who wonders why I don't mention what's coming via the previews, it's because we're here to talk about this episode only and spoilers about the future are a no-no on our part.
Spenser Amadeus - I have that same feeling, and it makes me sick. It's too bad they did't have the foresight to decide the fate of the child during that hearing, as well.
@Terrie - That's a really good point about jumping to conclusions. When the NSA listens only to bits of a conversation, that's really all the can do. When anything is taken out of context you'll never be able to solve put the pieces together.
@Fortyseven I thought of you when Revelation was said properly! :-)
Hi FictionAddiction... If Lexie was indeed being left to discover who she is by her own devices I think I would find it more interesting. Even if William was planting information less overtly than flat out telling her she is not who she thinks she is. Something doesn't feel organic. The closest we've come so far was building the gun, but it was only one scene built upon a complete rehash of last week's scenes. At that time, I thought Lexie seemed cool. Now I realize she will likely not have her own story, and I'm disappointed.
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.
