The episode itself was meh. There has been something in every episode that bugged me that I couldn't quite put my finger on until now. I enjoy Ioan, however, when he goes into reminiscent or reflection mode he gets this exaggerated title of the head and a goofy nostalgic look on his face and when there is voice over is his thought at the moment he gets the same kind of look. It's one of the reasons I'm not a fan of voice overs. If that was played a little more subtle I would be a lot happier with the overall package. It's not enough to keep me from watching but it does keep the show from being one of the top two or three.
They should bring Ziva back she made the show more exciting.
That was an action packed episode, with lots of information uncovered. I definitely understand why the Doctor is cozying up to Whitehall. Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer. That surgery scene where Skye's mother was cut up by Reinhardt/Whitehall was disgusting, I had to look away. The scenes with Brett Dalton and Tim DeKay were intense, great acting. It is definitely confusing as to where Ward's alliances lie, but I am leaning towards him being on Skye and SHIELD's side. I don't think he did kill his parents, and I think it is part of his plan to get Whitehall to trust him. I cannot wait for next week to see if they make it to the mysterious city.
One point that isn't clear to me is whether the Doctor knows, or even cares, that it was Hydra who raided the village; not SHIELD. He seems to hold both responsible even though viewers realize it was Hydra that had the Diviner in its sites back in WWII. SHIELD/Coulson still has no idea that Skye's mother was the purpose of the raid & the reason that Hydra tore her family apart. And, the Doctor isn't telling. As for Ward...ultimately, his alliances lie with himself. He's going to do his best to help Skye find answers & get retribution. But, he isn't going to ally himself permanently with any group that could end him. He'll be that rogue character on the fringe that everyone hates, but sometimes needs in a pinch.
I think he's pissed at Coulson because his meeting with Skye went badly. She called him a monster, from that point on he blames Phil as well. His motivation became clear this week, he wants Whitehall dead. I'm interested to see how things play out over the next few episodes.
I Think he is jelous of Coulson ..becuase he see that Skye looks up to him.
I'm with you Amy, it seems he's been through too much soul searching to just be the bad guy. There's a redemption story in there somewhere that's why I'm not sure he killed the family but staged it for HYDRA. The next new episode is Dec.2nd sadly so we've got 2 weeks to wait ugh!
Yes, ugh on having to wait until December 2nd for the next new episode.
Someone set me straight - when Dominic was talking about the teacher who inspired him to become all he can be, he WAS talking about Mr. Swift, right? aka Finch's undercover math teacher with a love for pi?
Great call on the math teacher possibly being Finch (back in the episode when he taught high school) Ya never know how your actions will lead to future events.
According to a correspondent of mine, Dominic was in the class when Caleb - the computer coding genius who blamed himself for his brother's death - was about to get caught selling drugs to get money for his mother before he killed himself. Season 2, episode 11.
It was nice to see Roy Le Grange back and the Detective in Ask Jeeves has been in two other episodes (After School Special and The Third Man). Ask Jeeves started off with potential and seemed interesting. Unfortunately it went down hill from there. The only interesting part of this episode was seeing the MOC start to creep up on Dean. After all the love of Fan Fiction and the brothers finally getting their "bond" back here we go again with the tearing them apart. I thought Ask Jeeves felt more like a really lame Soap Opera, think "Days of Our Lives" than an edgy, supercreative, scary sci-fi show. I expected to be let down a little from last week but not let down this much. This season is a roller coaster for me - up with one episode, down with another and I love roller coasters but not this one. This one is a boring roller coaster, so far. Looking forward to next week's episode as the trailer looked pretty good.
Someone will find a way to saveHook. At this point he is too integral to the show, though some May disagree. This is a season about Emma and Hook is a huge part of Emma right now. I believe that the writers would be totally crazy to kill off Hook as he is a huge fan favorite and like it or not, the fans do drive a large part of what makes a show successful. In saying that however, I am constantly dismayed at how much emphasis has been put on the frozen arc to the detriment of the other regular characters. We have seen so little of most of the main characters and what we have seen is so out of character for some of them. As far as Rumple, my thought is he is being made into the ultimate beast as they referenced Beauty and the Beast in there two minute honeymoon scene in 401- so maybe there will be some redemption because Belle as the beauty is the only one that can get through to him- that is if we see belle- she has been conspicuously missing this season too like most of the others. I hope she make Rumple give Killian his heart back or something like that!
Thank you, Maureen - I, for one, wish they'd never brought the Frozen storyline into this, pr kept it to a brief arc, at least. Elsa and Anna in this context are cloying and irritating. I generally fast forward through most of their scenes. Belle was featured in episode 7, so I don't think you can say she was conspicuously absent this season.
Thanks. True Belle was in episode 7 but certainly not as much, I feel, as in seasons past . All the characters have had some screen time, but certainly the frozen characters have dominated the show since they came to it. What I always enjoyed about other villians and themes is that all the characters were a part of it and you saw them all the time.
Hook was always in the plan since season 1 just didnt get the rights to it, and then making Colin as they found Hook main regular even before his first episode aired that creators and crew knew they found THE HOOK and its always been Emma/Hook set up since season 2. I really wish Emma finds out about the heart and also the phone message
Integral to the show how? It's not like anyone will be affected if he dies. Hell, it's pretty much a rerun of the Huntsman - only it'll be Rumple instead of Regina who gives the old heave-ho. Emma'll get over it easier than the fangirls.
That's very true actually. Other than Emma who would actually care if Hook were gone? He has no ties to anyone other than her. It's one of the reasons why I find the character so pointless I suppose. I don't care about his romance with Emma and when there's nothing else to his story then it's hard to care about Hook.
Yeah, I'm still wondering how he's integral. All he does is follow Emma around and lie to her. She doesn't even want people to think they're together and always prioritizes every one else before him. And that is his SOLE purpose. He didn't even truly contribute in Neverland (not that anyone other than Emma and Regina did) and that was a story that was built around his "importance"
Usually I love this show. And all things considered, this was a very good show, with one GLARING exception: The whole premise that the former Hospital Corpsman could be prosecuted for "practicing medicine without a license" when she is absolutely protected by laws that have been on the books for well over 20 years. OK, before everyone starts freaking out, in the US we have something called the "Good Samaritan Law" which protects people who provide assistance in an emergency who are not on-duty medical personnel. Please don't feel that you shouldn't provide assistance in an emergency (after calling 911 & before the trained personnel arrive) out of fear of being prosecuted for "practicing medicine without a license." The Good Sam Laws aren't a carte blanche, but for the average Joe, it is protection.
Virginia and DC do not have a Good Samaritan Law
Good Samaritan law in VA. Read and heed. http://www.vdh.state.va.us/oem...
I just don't get it at all. If I want to be on the safe side, I just call for help and watch the person bleed hopefully not to death. At least that's what the episode teaches me unless there is an Agent Gibbs around.
I feel the need to correct your quote: LaSalle: My brother's issues aren't fiscal.Martino: But they're no less real.LaSalle said his brother's issues are not PHYSICAL, making referno Martino's son's physical challenges.
Thanks for the correction. It was somewhere about midnight I was typing all this stuff up and my fingers got away from my brain. You're absolutely right, and the correction's been made. :-)
I am in awe of this great episode. I can't believe how evil Rumple has gotten, but it is fun this way I must say. I hope Emma finds out about what rumple has done to Hook sooner rather than later, I think Emma is going to have to fight for hook now! Finally we find out what happened in Arendelle
