Yeah I did feel a little downer but that was because my expectations are pretty damn high for this show as is. Sorry I will continue to bash Zack and how he has been written. There really aren't any redeeming qualities when it comes to him. RIP Vaun barely got to know you. Yes Dutch's arc did fall a little short but I do however enjoy her interactions with Fet. As far as Palmer goes, yes his love interest doesn't really fit in my eyes but I guess they wanted to get him a little more screen time so what better way. Good stuff seeing Fitzwilliam and Gus getting check ins because I feel like those 2 characters are 2 of my favorites.

I'm loving Gus this season, and we see much more of him in Episode 4. I think Fitzwilliam is going to play a major role in bringing Palmer down. He knows too damn much... unless they kill him off, which would be a total waste.

Loved last nights show but I now HATE Connor... Letting the dog out really upset me and it was the one and only time I sympathized with Abby. I was really hoping he'd show up at the end of the episode.

If that was my kid, he'd be banned from using any electronics at home until he found that dog.

I just thought of something else. There's a flaw in Eph and Nora's plan. If the Master can see through the eyes of all of his subjects he must know what they're up to.
Why wouldn't he just kill the infected vampire before it can start infecting the other ones?

Ahhh tune in to Episode 4 my friend ;) Obviously perfecting a virus in the third episode is a problem storywise. What's next if they succeed in infecting the other strigoi. It's a cool twist, you'll see.

I agree, it's too convoluted with multiple story lines. And it's not the fault of the actors; I feel they've all done great with their roles, but the story feels so needlessly complex that they should have reduced the main characters by one or two.

I'd say it became laughable pretty early. ;) Vince Vaughn is all height and no gravitas. I think they could have cut his character out of the show entirely and not hurt it. Colin Farrell the heartthrob just isn't believable as a middle-aged burned out cop, though I give him credit for his acting. The other two are also actually pretty good acting-wise, but their characters just aren't interesting. Or maybe they might have been if it weren't for the rest of the show being such a mess. Season One centered around a strange crime and had two pro actors chew the hell out of it. The setting was pretty thick with atmosphere. This season had a crime, but it was a crime against a scumbag. And it got pushed aside with a convoluted plot. To make up for the lack of atmosphere, we got a big dose of Twin Peaks. Good grief... I could go on. I knew when Season One ended it was a fluke. It was too good and looked like it was from a guy new to television. (No old pros in TV would fill it with so much philosophical dialogue.) Season Two shows that Pizzolatto was sort of a flash in the pan. Clunky dialogue that should have never made it to air. ... Disappointment.

It's gotten to the point it's almost laughable. I read a friend's recap on another site, and I suppose Frank was visiting someone who was related in some way to the sale of the blue diamonds. Or maybe I just conveniently connected those two plots in my head via Frank because I heard the word "kids." Who cares about diamonds that apparently traded hands in the 1992 LA riots?! I don't care about these poor people. Just yikes.

Hey Carissa.. I think Frank was visiting the widow of the guy that worked for him - the one who worked in the sewage company or whatever it was. He was trying to get him back into business but then he got murdered. I think that was his family.

I liked McHattie and I think his character was grossly underused. So much potential.

Could not agree with you more!

Sad that this show has gotten so ridiculous . It was once a decent show - I watch 10 min of the show two weeks ago still on the DVR and as soon as the old lady started making out with the kid I deleted it.

You and me both. Then I can spend the appropriate amount of time on Ray Donovan, which deserves the attention.

I think this was probably the most boring episode in the shows history, too much focus on building a railroad and no building up of new human threats to bohanon. And when the girl was hanging off the cliff, it looked like hundreds or a thousand feet to the ground. Then somehow Cullen gets to her in like 10 seconds. And she's alive. And this show has gotten too predictable or annoying with whatever the current minority is on the show, blacks now Chinese, they are always the heroic and do-gooding underdogs, except for Chang. Hopefully the show picks up next week.

You missed Tom Welling he would be great in so many roles he needs to come back to t.v. land, fans demand it.

Season 3 is a knockout. No letdown for me. Mr Schreiber's performances are pure craftsmanship. I do agree about Ray's family. There are annoying and completely unsympathetic characters...
