I like BB, but wish Selleck as Frank could dial back the sanctimony. Yes, Jamie and Eddie have feelings for one another. What to do?!
1. Amazing. I love how this show reworks old classics to something far more entertaining. He was perfectly sinister and creepy. 2. How can you pick one? The driving, abbie squealing like a kid on a roller coaster. The bit with the earbuds. The cappuccino. I mean how can you not be in love with Tom Mison? In fact how can you not love him and Nicole Beharie together and apart? Their chemistry is on fire, the best I've seen out of two actors in ages. I mean, onscreen it's magic because offscreen they're equally as magical as friends and that makes all the difference in the world. I could gush about the two of them forever. 3. He will. Right now he's in denial. He seems cool, kind of shady but I struggled to see what the point of him is. Jenny was a mercenary with extensive knowledge in the supernatural. He's. . Meh. 4. Henry screwing with him. 5. No idea.
Joe and Barry's heartfelt scene stole the night. That of course speaks volumes because there is so much to like. I find their relationship to be one of the most fascinating. This detective who didn't owe this kid anything taking him and, raising him, and viewing him as the son he never had. As a person who typically finds family/deep friendship type relationships infinitely more interesting to watch, i love the "family feels". I've never got any other vibe other than stern father-figure from Joe and watching the pain in his eyes when Barry said he wasn't his father and the barely concealed tears when Barry pretty much called him Dad was everything warm, fuzzy, and good in the world. I hope Iris finds out about Barry soon. I loved the scene when he confessed his feelings. The special effects continue to be kind of amazing considering how easily it could become cheesy. Iris is delightful and Patton nails that "girl next door charm". I find her refreshing and relatable, and I hate that she's always being compared to Laurel Lance. To me, she already started off on the right foot, because she's actually likeable whereas laurel didn't even start off likeable, sweet, or charming, and arguably still isn't no matter how they try to rework her character. I look forward to her getting something meatier, but her scenes with Barry are just sweet. I think they play off of one another quite nicely and it'll only get stronger. I don't think Henry will ever get out of jail. In fact I don't think he'll be alive by the end of the season. I'm looking forward to them fleshing out the other characters. Everyone seems fairly solid but I'd love for them to delve into what makes everyone click, sooner rather than later. Grant Gustin is a treasure. I could watch him for ages.
I thought this was a REALLY well done episode. Especially for those who were starting to think the show was turning into a joke or that it was getting TOO campy. The preacher pissed me off more than creeped me out! I wanted to punch him in the face! Just stay on your little compound with your followers and live out your happy crazy life! Leave the rest alone of they don't agree! lol I loved the way CitizenZ book ended the show and made us think about where we as a people may be going. As you mentioned, it's scary to think that with the things are today, that stuff like that, or something similar could actually happen. Or be happening under our noses right now... I actually surprised myself when Garnett died...It made me teary. I didn't realize I had grown so attached to the character. But TScott was one of my favorite characters and reasons for watching, so it stung a bit seeing him go. Watching Roberta kill a man she loved so soon after learning her husband is most likely dead was kind of heartbreaking. 10K was awesome as well! He's really growing in me! I love that he was the only one who had the "something's not right" feeling. He kept his cool and saved the day as always. I like that he and Cassandra have somewhat developed a sort of kinship. I'm not getting a romantic-y vibe at all, thank goodness, just a very we know we can't count on each other unspoken agreement. I dig it. All in all I think last night's performances were fantastic (with the exception of Mack & Addy, they are just not interesting in any way to me. I was hoping it would be one of them to go!) Especially Murphy. Keith Allan really knocked it out of the park! Such a great episode for him! We're only about half way through the season and I'm really looking forward to seeing where we go from here.......

I read in an interview that the creators/writers have a five year plan for the show! There HAS to be more characters being introduced along the way that will join them on their mission right? Roberta will definitely follow through and take control, once she has her grief meltdown out of the way....what did they say in the Avengers "this was never going to work if they didn't have something to fight for?" Or something to that effect....Hammond dying didn't mean a lot because they didn't know him, but with Garnett sacrificing himself I think they all felt it, even Murphy, and this will make their resolve stronger to do what they started out to do with him. Even if they only do it for Garnett. This is exactly what I had hoped the show would evolve into as well and even though we most likely won't see CA this season, we'll at least keep moving toward it!
Halfway through the season and so much has happened right? The only real leader left in the group is Roberta. She will stick to the mission but if she's the next to go not sure California will ever happen. Do you think the writers would do that? Promise us Cali yet disband the group before ever getting there? It's a shame the tone of the show has been so messy. This episode is what I hoped Z Nation would be more like. Loved reading your thoughts on the episode Carla, thanks so much!
A 5 year plan? That's way longer that a road trip to Cali, which means Murphy's either a goner or goes full Z. I'm sure we'll meet new characters along the way, hope they're cool and memorable. Rebooting the show each season with a new cast might be a great way to go. It's happening all over the country, so you never know.
Loved this one! I think Danny's brother might still be alive!! I also liked seeing a brief look at Robins' Nest, aka Eve Anderson's estate (Waimanalo) and the Shriners Club.
Thanks for the added commentary. I just watched a video clip of that scene posed on the CBS H50 website. It was cool seeing the characters charging up from the beach on the cement steps and recalling having waded in those same waters and climbed the same steps. Not sure if this link will work, but here is a try: http://www.cbs.com/shows/hawai...
I was wondering how many would recognize the Shriners Club as a stand in for the secluded off Island location. Choosing that location was a nice tip to Magnum P.I. given the many scenes that were filmed on that beach and at the beach front residence next door, It was deja vu seeing the cast members running on the same walkway and even charging into the same restroom that I had encountered while attending a party at the site.
Yes, I was wondering if anyone else noticed. It was so fast paced and I wished they would have extended the scene for a few more seconds. We visited Robin's Nest in March 2012 and it was one of the highlights of our holiday.
Great episode! Finally a show to look forward to on Friday night.Didn't see that coming, thought Charlie would be around for a while
Same here. Didn't expect Charlie to be killed halfway through the season. They sure know how to surprise us on this show.
1st, the guy had it coming- the line about Gracie was not smart- 2nd- if Dano was smart- bring back the monies, give Chin back his part and use the rest for good!- I really think his bro is dead! Steve is a surprise to stay with him- that is a good brother!
1.Special Effects!I must say they are looking quite good with exception of the flames in the burning house this week. They were really meeehh! 2. Too Many Metahumans?I mean it's fine till they contribute to the story when they are just blasting around I don't need them on my small screen. 3.Harrison Wells?At this point with some spoilery pics I saw, I assume he is Prof. Zoom or the Reverse Flash. What are his intentions? No clue but I can't wait to see! 4. Iris finding out?I think they could go and do a Chloe here. She'll find out but during the S01 and in the final she will loose some of her memories and stay in the dark for a season or two again.5. Comparing to other DC shows.Yes it's lighter but it has found a way to be deep and funny, entertaining and action packed. I'm a huge Arrow fan and it has a different premise that makes it special, while Gotham still has some issues and even though they try to make it dark and bloody it's too plane and uninteresting. I can't wait to see how iZombie will dig into the DC universe.
What was wrong with the flames in the burning house? Was the green screen work too obvious? I didn't bother me to be honest. Besides, the Multiplex effects more than made up for that hehe
They weren't bad, but they think they tried it a little bit too much there. Probably I'm a bit to nitpicking. but compared to the other effects it didn't looked well.But as you all said the effect overall look great and the effects for Mist next week look tremendous as well.
Well i gues harrison wells is actually barry allen from the the future what gave me that idea is that during the red sky the flash disappears and the red sky disappears too which may indicate that the flash actually went back in time, and uses the name harrison wells right now to try and save barry allen from the future.
So old Barry is killing people? He's a Reverse Flash makes sense
I'd like to comment on a woman loving two men discussion we had previously. Mimi Alford lost her virginity to John F. Kennedy when she was only 19 years old. Her book, "Once Upon a Secret" describes her sexual conquest by Kennedy, and her 18 month affair that followed. Ken Follett, in his latest book of the Century Trilogy, uses her story almost verbatim. Although he changed some critical characteristics, we know exactly to whom he is referring. I wonder if he had to get permission from Mimi? Anyway, Mimi, at 60 years old when she wrote the book said, "Friends never hesitate to ask if I was in love with President Kennedy. My guarded answer has always been 'I don't think so.' But the truth is, 'Of course I was.' This was one part hero worship, one part schoolgirl crush, one part the thrill of being so close to power - and it was a potent, heady mix. Then there was the spike in my self-esteem that I felt whenever I was with him; I simply felt more alive - more special - in his company. I knew that ours wasn't a partnership of equals, and that my love would go unrequited." Mimi met a boy named Tony during this same time. He was closer to her age. She says, "Before I met Tony, my secret was my problem; it had no impact on anyone else I knew. If I kept it until the day I died, no one would be any worse off. But that was changing as Tony and I became more serious about each other; trust would become essential. Soon I was thinking about Tony constantly. Mine was the schoolgirl daydreaming that any young woman with a new beau engages in, the delicious, guilty pleasure of 'he loves me, he loves me not.' " ....."I cannot locate the exact time or place when I realized that Tony Fahnestock was the man I loved. I often wonder why." Later Tony asks, "I want to marry you, he said. 'Will you marry me?' I wasn't expecting a marriage proposal, but I needed only a second to process the question. 'Yes!' I said. I practically leapt on top of him and kissed him as hard as I could." "There are many reasons people say yes to a marriage proposal. Love ought to be the first reason, and mine was." "In marrying Tony, I was opting for security. And perhaps grasping for an escape route from my crazy double life. Finally, "We didn't have an intimate relationship at this point. He never pressed me for sex. While his gentlemanly behavior was quite attractive, this situation did pose a bit of a conundrum for me. I was physically attracted to Tony and I had learned the pleasures of sexual intimacy from President Kennedy. This created a yearning in me for something more than necking in dorms and cars."Mimi loved two men at the same time and really shows that sex can lead to love, but also love can lead to sex. By the way, things did not work out with Tony even though they were married for many years. I don't think Tony could accept her double lifewhen he found out. I know I couldn't. Mimi did not have a happy life because of her decisions. She couldn't forgive herself because it felt so good when it was happening.
I liked this episode I didn't see that coming at the episode end. And I hope Danno doesn't get into trouble.
What happens in drug cartel land, should stay in drug cartel land. Who's going to tell???
