Fianlly got to see Violets.
I though Robin Tunney did a really great job of not being 'Lisbon'. I thought the plot was a load of fun and SB did another great acting turn himself. It feels like 2.0 is coming togeather a lot better now. It was helped along, at least for me, by them being out of that miserably office set most of the time.
People say Jane is childlike but increasingly Abbott seems to be going down the same route - easily happy and amused by 'toys' and games. I like Abbott - I suppose he also makes a change from all the bosses Jane was in semi conflict with, but who he has become does not fit at all with the nasty guy from the island. I wonder if he will revert to that or if the role will remain the new persona?
In some ways its almost depressing to see how good the Violets episode was, as it creates such a sense of loss about the show maybe not being renewed or picked up.
I thought Pike came across well. The actor seems well chosen for the role. That he and Lisbon might date looks convincing.
Seeing Jane on his own was sad, did not even seem to get any of the pizza as a consolation. Even in the middle of a crowd though he seems so alone, but to me its been like that for most of the show. Whatever happens with the Lisbon/Pike thing, I hope somehow we get to see Jane at least getting a greater sense of belonging, wherever that is.
The shift in Abbot's personality is puzzling me. Are we to believe that he was seduced by a toy robot? What about the still unknown BA list? Who is Abbot's superior and why were they so intent on getting Jane to work for them?
I just find the constant changes in character personalities very unsettling. Even if Lisbon is ready to move on, what happened to her empathy? Suddenly she has the ticking clock syndrome and is no longer the independent and feisty woman we know from the CBI but now is happy to not be in charge and to look forward to defining herself with a man? The old Lisbon would have confronted her problems with Jane more directly. Right now she is definitely willing to lose J's friendship over her behavior so her unwillingness to confront him can't be from fear of losing his friendship.
How did Fischer become so docile? Has Jane put the whammy on all of them?
I get that people change, but we ought to have a clearer understanding of why and how.
Tonya B -so glad to hear from you,as is the "old gang",i do agree with you that it would be very marlowe(isk) to inject doubt into kate after she really seemed to turn the corner in her relationship with rick-oh yea,thats how last season ended! It would not surprise myself one bit-and would assure a 7th season.
I thought there was excellent foreshadowing last week that she was not going to win. Christina telling Owen she thought she would win, while Meredith is doing a voice over about her mom being genuinely surprised when she won. I knew right then Christina wouldn't win.
Puzzling helicopter spoiler lower down this page, relating supposedly to Pike / Lisbon and Jane
Hmmm. What I get from the links you posted is that Jane feels he doesn't deserve Lisbon, wants her to be happy, encourages her to continue with Pike and even gets her a helicopter to facilitate her meeting him. Then it looks like Jane realizes he can't function without Lisbon, decides he might as well get what he has coming, quits FBI and goes to face a grand jury indictment. He has always been willing to accept consequences. That could be a cliffhanger to S7 unless it's a series finale. Then it could turn out that Lisbon insists on being with Jane and the grand jury thing fizzles or whatever. But that sounds way to soap opera like. Regardless, these last few episodes promise to be unusually interesting.
I am with you on where you think the show will go.
If they get 7 I presume Lisbon will rethink everything or maybe Pike will run on into 7. I got the impression from Violets that the Art Squad were based in Austin as I think Abbott indicated they are having their office redecorated on another floor of the same building as the CBI team.
What if Lisbon says no to Washington, so instead Pike chooses to stay in Austin?
There is a lot of scope for emotional interplay if Pike did roll into 7 esp if Jane started dating too. I am not saying I hope for this, just wondering what options the writers might see in order to keep the show running and maintain plots in parallel to the police content. Maybe more time would be spent on the development of other characters or the crush Fischer seems to have on Jane. I am sure they can find some backstories for Fischer as they have hinted that already.
If money is rolling in world wide I would think Warners might be keen to go on beyond 7 if they can get the cast or significant members of it to commit, as well as a USA based network. I hope the income from the rest of the world might be enough to keep the show rolling even if there is no US network for it. Ever the optimist! :-)
Another thing i wanted to point out was how terrible the promo of this episode was.If you didn't know any better you would have thought this show was a comedy...Also the episode prior to this also had a "fun lighthearted"promo that I find incredibly stupid and lame. these kind of promos set episodes up to be a disaster in my opinion.
I implore you to youtube it and check it out.CW treats this show like a comedy.I would love to hear other members thoughts on the way these promos are being done.
I completel agree with you. The promos are awful, cw is terrible in that department. The canadian promos are usually better for both Reign and VD.

I thought the episode was good most of all and Paul did great job at directing it but really Enzo was very funny in this episode. Season 5 may not be the best season but tvd is still awesome ✌️😊
I on the other side see things different. It was a solid episode, the visions were something different and I enjoyed the Stelena chemistry but yes they served something Stelena is completely over. They concluded it and there is no place to make them an item again. Delena is endgame I'm sure.
The scenes featuring the League of Unimportant characters (Jeremy,Tyler and Matt) were quite entertaining. Matt with Kol and Vicki was quite entertaining and I really hope there is a way to bring Kol back to we need more Originals at the Originals.
I believe we are headed for a strong finish but let's see.
Stelena is far from over, they will resurface at some point, the show still has at least 27 episodes ahead, a lot is gonna happen. Delena seems to be about to blow up, though, people hate them and even the characters show how sickening they are and how much they hurt the show
Why has there been no round table's from Scandal as of late?
I love this show. They really need to bring it back next season. I seen the EPT test but don't get the time line. Is it Ryan's? Yes Carissa,Joel was absent at the last supper,but I think the story telling time in bed,said a lot. Wishful thinking? Maybe even though now there is the affair issue.
I'm bored too...and I used to love the show! I also used to be a huge Delena shipper, but now, meh. Just wrap it up! This season has been terrible, no good story lines and nothing to get excited about.... im trying to think of when I was last interested and I think it was the first episode of the season, it did look promising... Then it was downhill from there. what changed I wonder? The writing has been really inconsistent and all over the place.
