One's interest is piqued....
Such a very good episode. I thought the conversation that Finch and Reese had in the house was the best discussion I've ever heard about for or against what should or shouldn't be done to defend a country. That being said, at best the congressman was a willing pawn. There are always more pawns. If the hour ever comes, let the Knight be sacrificed to kill the King, not some lowly pawn.
The entire TM story is about the Patrick Jane character and how he responds to life's events, good and bad. So that's what I pay most attention to. This episode showed he is still locked into the loss of his family. In Jane's conversation with Feinberg after the faked execution he mentioned that the "death" of Cruz was not as satisfying as Feinberg had thought. Jane's face said he was thinking of his killing of McCallister in the same way. Feinberg said the death didn't bring his wife back and Jane's face said no it doesn't and he was thinking of his own loss.
So here's the thing with a Jane-Lisbon relationship: Jane has never recovered from his loss and still wears his wedding ring. Lisbon dating Pike is making him think about what he is doing. He has been taking Lisbon for granted, assuming she will always be there as some kind of avatar of his wife - as close as he can manage. His hallucination in Devil's Cherry showed he knows he should move on but he ended up drinking belladonna tea, so he is not moving on. It's been over 2 years since he killed McC and he still hasn't moved on.
Lisbon knows this and knows he's not available as long as he wears that ring. Maybe she is dating Pike (and possibly conflicted because she is really attracted to him) to force Jane to face reality. In Fugue in Red she forced him to regain his memory, painful as that was, to make him face reality. The episodes are moving this relationship to a resolution and Jane will either face reality and his unacknowledged feelings for Lisbon or Lisbon will give up on him and go to D.C. with Pike.
I agree with most of what you say (nicely observed write up by the way). I would differ in that I think Lisbon is not trying to make Jane recognise reality but is angry and hurt by him and also, getting older, sees herself going nowhere with him. She does not really have the man she loves - but she can get love, hope, home and possibly kids if that interests her, elsewhere. Its a terrible choice for her - hanging around with Jane going nowhere and loosing all other life options as the cost (pehaps wondering if a version of Christina Frye or the woman who killed her husband, might come along and take him with ease with Lisbon not even left with Jane as a friend), or moving on with Pike and getting at least some aspects of life that are wanted as normal things by many people. She has a rotten choice, either something or nothing, neither life being totally what she might hope for, both at great cost to her. Rock and a hard place.
Tonight's episode on sexual assault was extremely well written. I was very impressed with the sensitivity, the political reality, and the variety of points of view included.
New Girl had a chance to "build unique comedy out of the ways two very different people struggle to build a life together."
I thought we were going to see this with Mindy and Danny too but we got dealt the same card. It appears too difficult for writers to think out long term relationship opportunities and work hilarious moments into that.
They killed the wrong vampire! If they were going to kill a vampire it should've been Josh, not Thierry. Unfortunately, I can't explain why it should've been Josh who died because then my comment will get deleted but if you've read my comments about Josh on other reviews you will understand why I think he should've been the one to die.
Are you implying that they should've killed him because he is gay???? If that is true you are an a**hole. If not, I take back my word.
seriously dude get over yourself
Seriously, get a life and don't watch the show if you are so disgusted by it. You keep posting comments nonetheless just for the sake of spreading hate against something you don't like. Either you are a troll or you have serious issues. No matter what it is, just stop it and use your time for better things. You've posted many times and you didn't have a single person ever agreeing with you on this, so it should give you a hint.
This was easily one of my fav episode to this season.
1. I totally did not see the zelena/ariel twist!
2. I was surprised he actually killed him but feel that he was so in pain from the loss of Emma he backslide. I think he has made really change in his pleading to Ariel for forgiveness.
3. Hook needs to let everyone know what is going on. It is the right thing
4. My favorite part was where Hook was almost completely in tears pleading forgiveness and invoking Emma's name as his true love
I guess it is because you sticked to see the show after Carter that you truly believe POI is still fresh...Suits was great. I like that kind of non cliffhanger and look forward to Mike trying to boss around Harvey...As much as I like the idea of Donna and Harvey together, I wonder how they can handle it without ruining their dynamic. Also, no teasing we are together but we break up and all the other nonsense. Looking forward to next season.
Oh, how come the recapper did not use " you just got Litt up" when Louis shut down the attorney general.!!!Louis was on fire this season!!!
I loved the scene when they went back to Pearson Specter. It was GREAT
This is stupid! Why would u marry someone u know nothing about? Why would u ignore a huge part of them and marry them? He knew these things about her that's why they didn't work out in the first place because she freaked out when she gave it up to him and walked around all guilty. She knew he could care less about God. Why do people do this to themselves? They should have stayed with the people they were with. Matthew was perfect for her! He had the same beliefs, had a sweet thoughtful proposal and dealt with her drama with Jackson. Jackson had a great thing with Stephanie they loved each other, they could relate on all levels and his mother loved her. Foolishness!
Where is the Scandal round table??? It is missing for another episode as well.
