The premise looks really promising. And the cast is out of this world too - Giancarlo Esposito is certainly in his element here. I'll be tuning in for sure.
Heartwing has it right: Jane *has* to alienate everyone in order to ensure they don't become targets of Red John. Plus, I think he knows that Wainrwright was playing some games of his own with the FBI chick - so he clearly doesn't trust him.
I'm not surprised about Awake. It had a lot of potential but really - how far can you stretch viewer credulity about a man who exists in two apparent worlds, without explanation? It was starting to hint at a mental condition - possibly schizophrenia - but kept teasing us with clues that a normal person just would not see in real life without the benefit of that other world. I'm sad to see it go - it was a great series, and I enjoyed the characters. But not surprised.
Bummed about The Secret Circle.
I agree with Nick. This was a throwaway episode, really. Criminal Minds just did the same thing in providing a mostly boring episode that did not change anything at all. Is this industry practice - making the penultimate episode a kind of comma before the big bang of the finale? Fine, Nick saw a Wesen change, and Juliette now has some sketchy DNA that she can't explain. My question is: so what? If the writers were trying to be subtle, they succeeded - to the point of being boring.
I'm with Dreamrose on this. The reason the Reagans are unapologetically religious is because the show itself is brutally honest. There is no hubris here - and that makes for compelling drama. We *care* for this family, with all of its warts. Missing from this episode was the minute-by-minute tension around the terrorist threat. We hear about the takedown but don't see it. We aren't privy to the work that is done in finding them. I think that's a mistake. It occurs to me that the rest of the episode - the brothers fighting, the concerns about Mother's Day - were all truly well done so I know that it would have been impossible to get it all done within the hour. Perhaps it should have been a 2-hour finale instead. If they had done that, the day by day normality of everything else would have stood in starker contrast to the looming threat.
Awesome! I wasn't a fan of the Samurai portion of this season. He was too dangerous and unstable. And the story with his character interrupted the flow of Hank's world just a bit too much. Even though his ongoing love of Karen is old, it's what defines Hank. It's what makes us care about him, no matter how far off the beaten path he goes. The Samurai thing was a complication that didn't advance the narrative at all. It tried to create a new one, and failed. I was willing to suspend my wariness at the beginning of the season, such is my respect for the writer(s). But felt disappointed at the end. Hopefully, this announcement about Maggie Grace represents a return to the story arc we know and care about. Even maybe l-word a bit. :)
The Division story has reached its run. Time to bering it down and reveal the newest more menacing international organization. So... I think Percy will die, although I doubt it will happen very easily. In fact, I think what's-her-name - the girl who plays the Burkhoff role for Percy - will be the one to do him in.
Vegas. Almost anything with Michael Chiklis has promise.
Looks like Cassie and Adam now have a propensity for evil while Diana and Jake will be the ones to pull them back from the precipice next season. It's a great and provocative way to end this season.
