Dexter Review: Necessary Evil

Dexter is on fire this season! I love that Dexter does not realize that Deb is not his only problem (mob, Laguerta)--it's slowly unfolding into a great season finish. I kind of wanted Louis to live though just to add a bit more pressure. I think hannah will be Dexter's new love interest until he finds out that she's a killer too. It's also interesting to see whether Deb will be frustrated enough by the system that she'll do as Harry did and accept and enable Dexter's urges. All in all, a lot of great things to look forward to!

Homeland Review: Ms. Right

I think the show is fast paced from ep to ep, because the turn of events are usually jaw-dropping. S2 started with Carrie on the outside, then her help was commissioned, and now it's revealed she was right all along. It seems that from next week she'll be back working for the CIA--it's another fast devt. However, Ep3 itself is weaker than S1 eps. It had implausible story lines, weak/too long, perhaps unnecessary scenes. Besides Saul successfully bringing back the video, Brody snapping the guy's neck off, and Carrie seeing the video, the other scenes were a bit blah.

To SA.. I hear you... more than that I think now it has become too gimmicky. GA's best times didn't include fancy musicals and time jumps--just great story telling.

1. Fave scene - toss up between Owen calming Cristina down the first time he saw her; and the last scenes leading to "You're my person".
2. Calzona! Obviously it's a long road for Arizona and her leg, but I'm ecstatic that they're giving Sara Ramirez good material to show her acting chops.
3. Not really plot holes but gaps - how they were rescued, Lexie's funeral and how everyone seems to have already moved on from her death, or why Mark Sloan seemed unaffected by it. Also in general I didn't like the multiple time jumps. It wasn't that they were confusing--I just thought they were unecessary.
4. Definitely. I think she'll be fired. She doesn't belong in that other place.
5. Absolutely agree! Awkward pauses when she's mentioned during conversations is not enough. Her death affects so many people. She should have had a "tribute" epi like Mark. And I thought the animals eating her was a bit distasteful.

My money was on either Dorota or Dan, so I decided to rewatch the series to get some clues. On the very first episode, on the very first time GG said "that's a secret I'll never tell..." guess who was in front of a computer: Dan!!!

I think Adam is not a bad choice (will certainly draw in viewers whether they watch to love or hate him). I can't say he is the best choice, but he is certainly a better choice than keeping Randy! Randy is in principle more experienced because of his age, but if you go through the videos of the past two seasons, he really hasn't added much to the show. He repeats/agrees to what other judges are saying. I'm totally sold on him being ousted for next season.

I think a lot of people are exagerrating when they say the finale wasn't good just because Lexie died. It probably was not the best option for her exit... but the acting was so good, and that's enough to claim that the finale is good enough. I am surprised Teddy's leaving as I was scared er and Owen will be an item.. Now we know that Owen will fight for Cristina and that, along with Teddy's leaving, will make her stay in Seattle. So glad we'd be able to see badass Cristina as an attending!

It just occurred to me when I watched this that we are only seeing the first 7 minutes, and as we've seen in many seasons already.. a LOT of things can still happen. I think the season won't end in the woods and they get rescued within a few minutes after this preview. A lot of things can still happen in the hospital, giving Shonda a lot of room for to build up why the main characters are staying. For instance, Cristina and Owen's reunion after the crash will I think be enough to force themselves to work things out...

Great review for a great season finale! The only thing I can say is: how can you only smile when, as Mason called Charlotte "Momma", she immediately teared up... smiles aren't enough... I could not control my tears! Charlotte has been my favorite character from the beginning, and I am so happy to see how far she has come. And Violet is such an irrelevant character for me!!! Why does one Grey's character need to die and Violet gets to stay? My Violet annoyance scale is definitely through the roofs.

I've called it from the beginning of the season and it looks like that's where the characters are headed for the series finale. End game will be Chuck and Blair, Nate and Serena and Dan alone as a great writer (a la Dawson Leery). The last 11 episodes will be used to keep everyone excited about Blair wooing Chuck. Nate being in the Spectator will be the first to know about Serena and will come to her rescue and with Lola gone he'll fall for S again. Dan will write another great novel, and in the finale the entire cast will all show up in his book party.
