I can't help but wonder if that was either A) Red's big lie to her (I never lie to you... except about that) or B) his definition of father, because Sam (I think that was his name?) is her father, regardless of biology. Could be wrong but if they are going to go that way, they'll definitely have to have a scene explaining that!

I have said for a long time (since last season!) that I think Skye is an inhuman, ever since we saw the blue guy in TAHITI. The season opener confirmed it for me. Love Simmons back, and yes the reunion was too short... but I think it was appropriate for the moment. It wasn't the right time or place. So do you think there is a tie to Hunter and Hawkeye somehow? Or will Bobbi marry again later? Not sure how these timelines work...

I don't think at all. That was too fast for Daryl and Carol to have rescued Beth - remember, that's all still in the same night - and why would Daryl tell them they could come on out? I think it's likely Morgan or someone we have not yet met.

Stalker Season 1 Episode 3 Review: Manhunt

Trent the cop as her stalker? That seems way too far-fetched for me. She sees him on a regular basis, I don't think she'd go through the trouble of changing her name to avoid him then be on the same police force as him, not to mention I saw zero discomfort around him from her.

This was deliciously creepy!
Can't wait til next week. Most fun yet, and I even teared up when Ethel was at the doctor!

Awesome episode. I too hoped for more on the reunion, but as I consider it more, I think anything different than what we saw would have been inorganic to the traditionally non-demonstrative characters. Add the awkwardness and this was just right. For now!! Whoa on the Simmons extraction. Morse had me fooled except how did she infiltrate prior to SHIELD collapse? Her pointing that out in Simmons exposed her too in a way, no? Maybe it didn't matter since she was leaving soon. Amazing how well the actress changed from bit** hydra face to warm SHIELD face. Then I watched her in About a Boy and could barely recognize her. Great job :) SHIELD is getting GOOO-OOOOOOOOOD.

I agree... I SOOO want to like it because I adore Kate Walsh. But this is... awful.

I think Bonnie didn't tell Annalise b/c then she would have to admit that she was stalking outside their house... presumably to meet Sam for that "dinner"? Or to jealously follow Sam to the "dinner". Whatever reason, it's something she couldn't very well tell Annalise. I guess everyone knew she was screwing the detective. Hope that doesn't hurt her later. The glimpse into next week makes me wonder if someone is going to kill Sam in defense of Annalise. I highly doubt it will be her. It looks like he is trying to kill her because my guess is they have a fight and she accuses him of killing Lila. And, when that happens, he knows she'll use it to get Rebecca off and send a full-fledged investigation after him, which will reveal the truth. I actually like Oliver and Connor. They are still early on but I get why he was ticked. Hopefully when Connor comes to him later it's okay, but since they're not married or anything, it could also expose Connor to tons of liability - can you imagine THAT testimony? Mr. (Oliver's last name), please describe the state of mind that Connor came to you with the night of Sam's murder. What did he say?
Yeah, that won't be good. They need to do something compelling with Prom Queen as I have literally zero investment in her as a character. I didn't catch what Nate found in the car. I saw him reviewing the GPS (people still use those?) but not sure what he might have found. Finally - that last scene. Oh. My. God. Proves why she is such an incredible power house. Even right down to how much darker her skin was under her makeup - can be an entire exposition just on that topic of the pressures women of color feel to be beautiful and what that means. I think that whole scene was about the airs we put on, and how they defend us, and she confronted Sam with no airs and no defenses. Wow.

I am LOVING this show, and I think that the show's introduction with the voice over (is that Katey Segal?) is so smart - makes you feel like you can't dare miss an episode! What happens after the 8 months and change?? Do they get engaged? Married? Split? Gah!
I adore them both though. Both unique and identifiable without being tired or cliched.

Someone needs to tell Maggie about her. Why this is called Grey-Sloan and what happened. Would give her a lot more compassion and insight into why Mer might be just a LITTLE hesitant about finding a new sister. I was incredibly annoyed with how Maggie treated Richard last week. It's not like he held on to the information for weeks. He had JUST met her, AND he didn't really know for certain (mommy's baby, daddy's maybe!) until now. Someone else posted that it seemed inorganic for her character, and I agree. Mer really annoys me sometimes but Derek is being SO douchey that it's even in my mind! But like you, I softened at his sister reaction. This was a great treat of an episode for me, as I only came into the show several seasons i - season 5 or so I guess? I can only imagine how incredible it was for long-term fans!
