Loved the episode. I mean you can't fault them for reuniting Fitz/Simmons. What they could have done a lot better was the scene were Fitz jumped through the wormhole: The camera suggested once that Simmons was on a incline of sort, but it didn't look steep enough to stop her from just walking up. Its really unclear, especially since Fitz is shown walking around on the other side after he got through. I mean, yes he was being pulled back by the cable in the end but what was keeping her from moving?
I was wondering how they would babble their way out of having a black hole of all things show up at the end of season 1. Now I'm just happy they didn't make Dr. Caitlin Snow ask about the accretion disk again.. yeah it was pretty bad. Over all the episode was fine. The meta of the week ended up being one big contrivance, but I cut them some slack there since they had a lot of catching up to do.
I'm dropping Minority Report after 3 episodes.The concept is nothing original, the supporting cast can't act and the setting is very poorly realized. You are right about the bluescreen backgrounds. Especially the close ups shots. They blurr out everything but the head, it looks terrible.
I would love to tell you, but the writers strayed very far from the books when it comes to all the Dornish plots. Those scenes are new to me. Yes, Sansa swipes something off a barrel at 12:11. After having rewatched it, the tool looks like a awl to me.
Seems for an odd place to put that specific key. my money is on some kind of a knife, awl or shiv. Basically anything to stab the bastard.
I applaud you Henry. You are one of only a few critics that got why Tyene seduced Bronn: Now he ows her one.. and since he never would have injested anything she gave him without proof of his poisoning she had to speed the poison up by raising his heart rate. I thurrowly enjoyed this episode. As a book reader, I was waiting for Cercei to get her due all season.. knowing about it in advance did not harm the experience at all. So much cathartic release. Wonderful! And how much fun was the Queen of Thorns? Her bluntness is so refreshing. Esspecially in this world where so few people seem to say what they think. For next week:I'm looking forward to seeing Danny interact with Tyrion. I wonder what exactly Sansa took from the barrel.
I stopped playback and threw a curse or two in the general direction of the screen.
As far as endings go this was great! leaves a lot of questions for next seasonbut hey, I was going to watch anyway. I will say that erasing Eobard from historywould have far greater consequences then him simply disappearing.Over all, I liked this episode. Especially compared to the Olicity road trip over on Arrow.. There was a little too much foreshadowing about Eddie having to live for Eobard to be born.Might as well give him 1 month until retirement and dress him in a red shirt. I enjoyed seeing Caitlin and Ronnie get married and the little fake out when he got zapped. Also, this episode had by far the best little quibs of the season. "May the Speed Force be with you" Just to make an example. Great! Last but not least: Caitlin Snow knows what a singularity and accretion disk are. Period.They need to find another character to bounce exposition off of.

"Could have been worse" isn't worth 5 stars. I'm actually glad the series is over. This season was all over the place. The cancellation saves me a good rant. You never know when you need one of those. Looking back, the whole show would have been better off as a mini series or needed to be caped off after two seasons. The focus hasn't been on a "Following" for a while. Good bye Ryan, Max and Mike.. even Joe at least you were fun. May your story-arcs rest in peace.
There is a big difference betwien hating Juliette as a character ot her story arc. I was a vocal supporter of her character for a long time, even embraced her change to a hexenbiest in the beginning. That was before the writers turned her into a revenge obsessed hypocrite. The character we were presented at the end of the current season does not deserve a redemption arc. I am sad to see The supportive and loving Juliette go. I'm dancing on tables at the thought of a dead "Darth Vet".
