in my time, i've seen different types of women in maggie's situation, so i found her rant incredulous and pure nonsense. to me, she overplayed it, without subtlety and honest intensity, both of which could have made her point much better. and, picking up the intern--i don't believe it! not because it wouldn't ever happen, but because i don't believe she's a good-enough actress to make me believe it. the other storylines in this episode were refreshing and well done!
I Must have watched a different version of the episode because the version I saw Dwight have a major role in the episode and you do not even mention him
He's in the recaps and the quotes. That's just the way the review portion played out.
Mellie and Cyrus are fun to watch because they are ruthless and amoral. . .neither one is remotely fit to lead this nation or any other. Fitz may be a bit spoiled and entitled but he is also compassionate, thoughtful and capable of changing with circumstances, that's not wishy-washy, it's recognizing that life evolves. At their core Mellie and Cyrus are exactly the same people they've always been, neither has learned anything from their loss(es) and each believes his ambition more important than anything else including someone's life. For the record, Fitz doesn't owe Mellie anything more than an apology for not ending his marriage much sooner. 'I couldn't do it anymore' Fitz said to Mellie and 'Everybody's changing on me' Mellie said to Cyrus. . .Fitz couldn't imagine spending the rest of his life in a loveless (arranged) marriage and Mellie is incapable of learning from her life experience (though she herself did change. . .before the rape she and Fitz were partners and friends at least and seemed to enjoy each other; after the rape Mellie became closed and distant and unreceptive, without explanation. . .Fitz put up with that for 10 long years before he met Olivia). Cyrus and Mellie will hopefully engineer their own destruction as they try to punish Fitz for actually being the man they claimed all along to admire (when in reality they just wanted someone they could manipulate)
This is what happens when they move things around.. The Originals were doing so great in the beginning but they move the damn thing every year!
I'm surprised i liked it so much!! I was tired of Elena, too. Enzo needs to be a good guy!
What I want to know is...Why does Marcia Gay Harden and Luis Guzman want to make me cry for an hour?
Have to say I'm loving the Bauhaus music. Takes me right back! I have the 12 inch Bela Lugosi's Dead - it goes on for ages. So expressive.
Always loved Karev, so this episode with him front and center was terrific. I thought the two most powerful scenes were the one with Alex and Arizona that you mentioned....the "pep talk" and Maggie's alien rant. Loved Amelia's naked scene as well and Bailey and Webber. Only thing I hated? The end with Maggie in the bar...UGH!
OMG!!! Thank You. I thought that I was the ONLY who hated the ending with Maggie and DeLuca. I hope Maggie doesn't go there. She seems to be the type of girl that is either in a relationship or nothing. I think that Maggie needs to date more and open herself up to new experiences.
The entire premise for the separation is sooo flawed, it's rediculous . Leave Rick to keep him safe. He's a world renowned author whose marriage was plastered on newstands world wide. If anyone wants to threaten KB'S investigation they know where to find clan Castle. Worst yet is KB being consumed by yet another obsession. When this case is solved does Rick wait again when the next obsession manifests itself.The writers are going to have to do something when this mystery is solved to prove to fans that Beckett is worthy of returning to Rick. As of now, she is a major head case and returning isn't gonna satisfy the fan base. It makes her no better than Meridith. Kate will become the deep fried twinkie in the eyes of the fans.
