I am absolutely furious at the writers after last nights episode! Jimmy has been the heart and sole of this show from the beginning. Think back over the last four seasons... what kept us all watching? The final meaningful scene in every season has been Jimmy. The end of season one with him tragically waiting for a Fiona that never showed. Then him returning in the last scene of season two with his Brazilian drug bride "with" him. Then season 3 with him being put onto the boat. And season 4 in the car outside of Fiona's house. The writers have used Jimmy to keep all of us hooked into this show from the start. He is the best thing they have and they know it. When Jimmy is in the show I find myself loving Fiona's character. When he is gone I feel absolutley nothing for her. She becomes directionless, disconnected, and boring without him. Since Jimmy left Liam has almost died, Debbie has started beating the hell out of people, Fiona went to prison, Carl has started selling drugs, Kev and V have fallen completely apart, Ian has been commited, and Lip is now on an ever thinning sheet of ice that is keeping him in school. Where the hell is all this going without the intervention of Jimmy's character? Fiona has become so separated from the show without him that Sammie is now taking her place as mother of the family. And after everything has gone to crap since he left, and they leave you waiting for a year and a half, they bring him back just to butcher him in two episodes and throw him to the curb? I cannot remember a bigger injustice to an amazing character and actor since Dexter. Maybe it is Showtimes method. They did it with Dexter, Weeds, Brotherhood, and now they are doing it to Shameless. They take amazingly written and acted shows and turn them into something almost unwatchable. I feel betrayed and insulted as a fan that has watched from the start and invested almost five years of my life into this story. The only reason I started loving this show was Fiona with Jimmy, and Lip with Karen. They killed the Karen magic long ago, but did it with the glory and craziness that character deserved. Tragic but acceptable. This is uterly unacceptable. I will not be watching another episode of Shameless until I know for sure that Jimmy is coming back. If he doesn't then last night was the series finale for a highly dedicated fan. Fix this writers or Showtime may also be losing a 12 year subscriber very very soon. And I take no pleasure in saying that :(
Yes for the amazing chemistry with Raven and Wick fun and exiting i want more
We watched the 1st episode of Gracepoint. Couldnt get into it. Really enjoyed this though. My guess, Melissa Gilbert's mentally challenged son- accidentally, while they were playing.
They could not have casted a better Dahlia. This is going to be good!
After being off for such a long time I was disappointed in this episode and I did not think it was one of the better ones............with only 7 left (including last night) it should have been better.............
Personally I love Jimmy/Steve/Jack--he is the hottie we all fell in love with (along with Fiona) BUT his crazy life fits right into hers! #hopehestays
Interested to see what happens next and I don't buy for a minute all is as it seems in Alexandria..........
She really knows how to cover herself. Excellent writing, acted on very professionally by Ms Leoni. I love it whenever she turns things around on that know-it-all 'Twerp' (Chief of Staff).
im actually impressed at how the jimmy/steve/jack issues were handled. im glad fiona told gus the next day (very mature for fiona considering the mike &his brother situation last season). i was surprised and intrigued that gus wanted to meet/talk to jimmy but then also thought his punching him was totally realistic - if they had actually sat through a pie &coffee at the diner it would've been totally wtf. im super proud of fiona realizing that this was closure (seeing him flirting with the waitresses grrrr, how smug can he BE!??) and i suppose i have to say i kind of admire jimmysteve for getting on his showy motorcycle and riding off.to top it all off, the final chat between fiona and jimmy/steve/jack's partner was the cherry on my sundae, proving he's still a fickin' liar.although i'm not sure what it means for gus (id love it if he and fiona took it slow, going on dates and to get to know/love each other slowly - like a reverse courtship, it would be sweet and refreshing in a shameless world), im still cheering that jimmy/steve/jack is (hopefully) gone for good, YeAh!!!
"you can't throw the strategy component out of the equation – not with this show" You can because Jason said in interviews for this episode that the kiss was genuine from both of them, that it was a real kiss, a real moment they had. You can even look at the script teaser for this scene at @the100writers on tumblr. They posted it. :) "After all, The 100 is well-versed in the misdirect"Sometimes, but we all new Finn was going to die, and then he did. I really hope Lexa doesn't. She's so amazing and I want to see more of her and more of her relationship with Clarke. How repetitive to keep killing off Clarke's love interests?
If she does die I think it will be a way to make Clarke the leader of the grounders. They believe in reincarnation. It can't be like the dalai lama because they can't wait for a child to grow up. There must be another way they find out who is the next leader.
