It was a great episode, but Megan's death was certainly a downer. I kept holding out hope that she would go into remission and live awhile longer. It would be nice if some good could come from this and not be for nothing. Although it will be nice to get Sly back with the team and out of the hospital. I hope it's not another 15 years before Walter sees his parents again.
OK, old thread but...why not post images of the BOTD online and see if someone could crack the code? And/or use the images themselves and keep the original locked up? Should have been online somewhere if it was in a museum before. Same with taking it to Rowena. Lazy storyline written with a Baby Boomer/early Gen X mentality trying too hard to be hipster.
I found this ep to be the most amazing one yet. (And I don't use that term lightly). So much so that I re-watched it from the start, just to get the highlights again. The beginning sequences, with all of those executions set to the music of "Locomotive Breath" was compelling, to say the least. And the buildup around The Undertaker was pure Coen Brothers classic formula. First, we hear about him as the big boss threatens to bring him in to the picture (and take Milligan out). Then, he shows up with his henchmen, all of whom check their ties. Heck, The Undertaker doesn't even punch the elevator button; he looks behind him and then one of his underlings reaches forward to do it for him! This is a man of presence and power, not to be fooled with! Then Milligan comes in and blindly murders him. Pure Coen magic. As for Simone, there were a couple of things that came to mind from the start of the ep. First off, she has a mouth on her that won't quit. Not a problem in itself, but when you put that dynamic in front of blood-thirsty guys like Milligan, well, it's just not a great idea to keep talking. Yet talk she does. When I saw her with Milligan I thought to myself "okay this girl is going to die before the season end." I had no idea it would happen so quickly. When she was on her way to her doom in the truck with Bear, she kept trying to fill the silence, which just increased the tension (given Bear's ignoring of her). She did reveal one really troubling thing: she said that Bear isn't aware of some of the things her dad did to her when he (Bear) wasn't around. Just as we were getting to appreciate Dodd's loathsomeness, this comment added a few levels to it. The man clearly needs to be terminated. Next ep will probably feature much more now of him, Peggy and Ed. And Milligan of course. To say I loved this episode would be putting it mildly.
I think next week we need to see what happened when Ed came home and found his crazy wife and dead/unconscious gangsters. They concocted a wild plan and headed for Sioux Falls, all with Hanzee on their heels. Also, more/the last of UFO stuff and cancer, and buckle up for the final 2 episodes.
Agreed on all points. I slightly preferred The Gift of the Magi to this episode, but I really loved this one as well. No such thing as a bad episode of Fargo, it seems like! Milligan's dispatching of the Undertaker and his men was one of the best and most intense scenes of the season. I can't get enough of Bokeem Woodbine in this role. The writing was absolutely on the wall for Simone's death, but I really thought Milligan would be the one to do the deed -- and I agree, I didn't see it happening this far in advance of the finale. Rachel Keller did such a wonderful job with this role. Dodd is despicable and needs to go, but it better happen on-screen! Simone's line about what Dodd does to her when Bear isn't around, paired with her earlier line to Dodd (right before he slammed the car door on her legs, he pushed her around and she asked him whether doing that "got him hard" -- gag) really paints a disgusting portrait of him. I'm not fond of Peggy, but I loved that she took him down via cattle prod. That was amazing. I can't believe the season is almost over! I want more, but at the same time I appreciate how tightly knit and focused the shorter season is.
Actually I thought this was the last season of Vampire Diaries?
So did I. I think Julie Plec has milked the teenybopper demographic for what's it's worth. The CW has suddenly found a whole new audience with Greg Berlanti and is just adjusting to it.
OK. I liked the kiss. <ducks> I thought it was sweet, touching, and showed how vulnerable Jane let herself be with Kurt. His soft spot for her has been obvious. I think it will add a welcome dimension.
I know I'm in the minority, but I do 'ship them. I'd like the show to get back to the idea that there were a bunch of children who were captured the same time she was, like in "Salt." They should build on that story while they're tinkering with everything else.
Me too I loved the kiss nothing wrong with that
Me too. It's been obvious it would happen at some point.
Count me in, as I kind of enjoyed the kiss.
So in the end, the last 5 episodes really were just a complete waste of time, and we were all right:- Kate is a broken, selfish, lying psycho incapable of trusting the one man who has loved her unconditionally and supported her.. Always.- Her reason for the separation wasn't 'to keep Castle from investigating' like a few delusional fans theorized, but as the rest of us clearly understood, to keep him off LockSat's radar and out of harms way, which was stupid and unbelievable- That they could have skipped the last 5 episodes and gone directly to working together, because we knew that eventually this is where it was going to lead. So the last 5 episodes were an ABSOLUTE, COMPLETE waste of time doing pointless, and for many fans, irreparable damage to their relationship and characters, and alienating fans across the board.Well done Hawley and Winter.. well done. Even with this band-aid, it still doesn't fix everything, the damage is done. I still hate Kate's neurotic and broken character, and I have zero respect for the fact that Rick given that he A) took so long to figure this out and B) takes her back so easily. Turns how Hawley and Winter weren't clever, that this wasn't some genius plotline that will make them even stronger than before, it was a completely failed, contrived and totally unbelievable attempt at creating drama where it was as unnecessary as it was unbelievable.I still don't know if this is enough to get me watching again.
Great Episode again and I really liked the case with the fungus, even if it got sidelined because of the fact that the episode was about Megan's fate most of the time. His sister's passing hit Walter hard, because in my opinion you could tell that he had to fight so much to keep his tears from flowing down his cheeks especially after he had watched that Video from his sister after her passing. I liked the fact that this sad moment made him open up again to the people around him especially Paige, who had tried her best in the past episodes to break through the wall that he had built between and his team. I have to say that I was a little worried at first, after the pretty reserved greeting between Walter's Dad and Sylvester but I was happy to see that those two got along better as the episode continued and I would love to see more of Walter's parents.
The most annoying characters in this show...Amelia, April and Jo. Jo should stop feeling sorry for herself, suck it up. Alex relationship with Meredith is deep and long-standing. And while he should put her first some understanding from her end would go along way. Relationships aren't about you but the both of you, and compromising for your partner isn't too much to ask. At this point she should just leave Seattle :) Same for April, everything has to be done her way or when she is ready. Where is her consideration for Jackson's feelings. They both lost a child, and since then it has been all about her, her feelings, her way of dealing with it.....I hope they do work it out, but not with Jackson doing as April says or wants but her realizing there is 2 people in that relationship and she needs to consider Jackson's point of view... As for Amelia, agree with Meredith.....she is SUCH a child. Everything is about her and when she is called out on it she falls back on her addiction. She needs to grow-up. This thing is about Owen, and while he is wrong in shutting her out, expecting Meredith to fix that then throwing Derek in her face when Meredith doesn't work with her script is uncalled for. I would have thrown her out to. Watched her on her downward spiral on PP, she was horrific to Addison so no sympathies here....happy for her to go get back on track somewhere faraway from Grey-Sloane and Seattle and never come back.....
Agreed agreed agreed.
No meredith is so selfish and arrogant and doesnt see what hapoens around her cause she is too busy living in the past - once again
The writer mentioned Jim becoming a dark character............I don't ever remember Jim Gordan being a dark character............seems he always struggled between what's right and wrong............ We all know Selina Kyle becomes Catwoman and becomes a foe for Batman............will that be explored (as in what exactly made Selina become Catwoman) in later seasons if this show lasts that long? We all know Riddler and Penguin (we've gotten plenty already to what makes these 2 tick) are ALWAYS a thorn in Batman's side........will that be explored? Or is the sole focus of this show supposed to only be what happened in the years between Bruce Wayne's parents killing and him becoming Batman?
# of episodes = 29# of average or bad episodes = 0 JTV continues to be undefeated as every episode in this series has been good. first time in a long time (probably since scandals peak between season 2 and 3) that i've seen a NETWORK TV DRAMA, knock it out of the park, week after week after week. My Notes of the Epi:* glad jane and xo realized they were being stretched too thin with all the thickening pressure and decided to get a nanny * I thought michael's cold shoulder was very justified and i was glad to see him finally stop giving jane the time of day (glad to know he was just undercover and not really fired) * LMAO when rogelio said "tiniest bit focused on myself lately" - guess his all the time and lately are synonymous in his mind. * jane makng list of convo topics ala niyla styers was funny especially since none of the topics were responsible for the actual thing they had in common, breast pumps. * LMAO at jane pawing btb bolton's boltons and squeezing, so embarrassing * nadine dying especially after saving michael, was a tough pill to swallow. she was never really a bad person and just got mixed up in the wrong crowd due to sin rostro's evilness and how unselfish and brave of her to put her life on the line for michael * ROFL at xo imagining being filled up with passionate love below by the young hot male nanny, desperate housewives style (reminded me of gabrielle solis and her gardener) * loved the tyga reference regarding rogelio leasing all his cars like tyga did with kylie jenner * so cute petra asking jane on a 'date' and being so shy ( * cant stand that weasel gaf and it was his 'interview' of luisa that i realized he was trying to steal jane's story for a novel (well turned out to be a front page headline but tomato tomahto) * ROFL when esteban ordered "the guards" to remove rogelio and the one guard in the background just looks confusingly at his script as if to see where is that part in the scene since he must have missed it lol * jane can really be so ocd with mateo and annoying ala niyla will be * glad jane found out about queen telling chavez about her comments, now she knows not to trust shim. and it was nice that chavez forgave her and took on the role of her supervisor * glad jane found out rafael lied and got michael fired. it was such a weaselly thing to do and for him to act as if he was innocent shows he is not this great guy that they try to paint him out to be Questions1) anyone else see mike and petra as a good couple?!2) does anyone see something brewing between the jane & chavez or will they keep their relationship strictly professional?
