I understood the story perfectly! (Maybe that's because I haven't missed a single episode of all 101 and most I've watched way more than once!) for better or worse, An H50 episode often needs to be rewatched in order to catch all of the COTW, since, as you say, it sure seems to wrap up fast! The mother was depressed...suicidally depressed! She'd already attempted suicide once. Obviously she wasn't thinking clearly. In her depressed mind, Mom thought her sons would indeed be better off without their parents arounds as anchors pulling them down. Most people in their right frame of mind, her sons included, wouldn't view the situation in that way, but Mom was definitely not right with her world! It was a sad story. But the episode ended on a high note with Aunt Deb's wedding. That was sweet! Can we get the elephant off our collective back now that we have some closure on the McGarrett/Rollins love affair? Show came out and told us tonight that Catherine has found her paradise, and it's not in Hawaii. She's given Steve permission to move on, and it's time for the show (and it's fans) to do the same. Anyway, I enjoyed the episode!
That is what I was going to say for the storyline and the looks of it, Catherine is not returning to Hawaii anytime soon or at all. She has found her place and Steve should not wait for her, like she herselfl told him, that clearly means to me,, Catherine in a way broke up with Steve and he now can move on with his life. Time to find a new love interest for Mcgarrett I guess., I dont mean now but later in the season, but plizz do it in a slow proper manner this time, everything in due time for him. Let him grieve for a while until he fell in love slowly again with another woman. Although it seems the new lawyer could be his potential new love interest and in the case she will be and not another choice of woman, make it slowly, get to know each other better, no hurry in order for Steve to know there is chemistry between them or not. So I guess Mcrollins fans, it is important to move on and respect the decision of the Executive Producer, Peter l. and the writers and even the own actress herself who decided to quit the show, because Catherine is no longer part of the show.
In fact Catherine saying those words to Steve, maybe over a phone call, that "she found her place and he should not be waiting for her" made Catherine as if she never cared for Steve or love him, but Steve did say he gave his heart to it but then Catherine did not gave her heart to the relationship, like he did. It made Catherine look like a heartless woman and too bad cause it was her final story with Steve, the writers should had made her finak words to Steve story a bit better, like they eneded in good terms or something, no wonder he was heartbroken after hearing those words from her. , her words to Steve were harsh.
The mother clearly did not see a way for her boys to escape the sins of their father. Not only was she depressed, but I think it was also said that they both cared about money the most. Those two things together make her decision more believable and make more sense. The dad got the short end of this deal! For me I like it when a show makes a clean break with a romance story. I want the character to be over it, but I also don't want that person never mentioned again. This are real people after all! I am holding out hope that this mention could be a foreshadowing for someone new to enter his life. His aunt was telling him that he needs to find love!
I hope it is not the Spanish flu. NASTY disease. My grandmother's older sister died of it.
I'm sorry to hear that. But now I'm thinking... What if as Mara is immune to the Troubles, Audrey is immune to nothing at all? That might be too deep for Haven, but has she ever been exposed to anything at all? Vaccinated? It would be an interesting cautionary tale.
I think the reason Meredith was unhappy with Derek turning down the job in the first place is because she sensed that somewhere, deep down, Derek would begin to resent her. It's not that she is reluctant to support him, she just didn't want his sacrifice to become a cloud that would hang over their marriage because it was made out of a sense of obligation, which is largely what ended up happening. I can understand things for both their perspectives. Nothing is black and white, just as when disagreements and challenges occur in real-life marriages.
Heroes was seriously too far a great show to cancel.
Another great episode! I think my favorite exchange was: Daniela: "I read that collesterol is the number one killer of latinos."Natalia: "I know a few cartells who would disagree with you." LMAO! I also loved: Josh: "Two tickets? You're going with someone?"Cristela: "Yeah, a cutie named Henry."Josh: "What kinda jerk makes you pay for both tickets?"Cristela: "My nephew."Josh: "Oh. Sounds like a great kid." The Cristela/Felix dynamic is fast feeling like one of the centerpieces of the show. Kind of like the Debra/Marie dynamic from ELR.
I love this show because it has a great mixture of drama and suspense. When Wes was having the flashback and Annalise appeared and said "You needn't be." that blew me away. I'm wondering did she plan the perfect murder and use "her crew" to pull it offk? I can't wait for the next episode.
I agree that this was the best episode in the series yet. The nice thing about being so old is that I sorta remember the Swamp Thing's Constantine and the beginning of the Hellblazer series but I dropped out of comicdom. This makes the show fresh in my mind - I don't "expect" certain characters to show up - I just enjoy the show anew and I really like that it has a flavor different than the other DC shows. I can't possibly add to Hank's totally comprehensive review but appreciate the effort.

I agree, the creative team has done a fantastic job differentiating this show from Arrow, Gotham or The Flash. DC has really managed to make each of their shows unique. Constantine's subject matter is definitely the darkest yet the comedy bits don't feel forced like on Gotham. I'm loving this cast too, and meeting new characters like Jim Corrigan. I'm just diving into the comics now, everything is very much brand new to me!
That's the first thing I thought at the end of the episode. Did the writers change their meds? This much better. Mara and Duke are changing each other in very interesting ways for the better. I agree that Mara is much more palatable than previously. I also like that Doc (now a stealth member) still has the hots for Dwight, who continues to delight this season and ironic that he has the hots for Charlotte (or is he playing her?). Then there is the mystery of Charlotte WTF? Who is she working with - yet a new player(s)? Hope that Audrey and Nathan kick it up a few more notches because they are still relatively stagnant. I like that the aether is in the ether (so to speak) who will get the prize?
i've said it before:i had no love for the travelers last season! i was not excited for this season to start but this storyline is so exciting and complex. my husband gave up after last season but i told him he has to give it another try. i love the gemini thing and mostly ric being back lol. damon needs his drinking buddy :)
I love Kevin Tran, but how did they not have Bobby Singer on this list?!
