well that was a crappy ending! really the kids are in charge now! i was hoping for a better ending, even if there is a 2 nd season pretty sure i wouldn't watch it.
I’ll start with the good. - Everything pertaining to Jaeger and her manipulation of D’avin. Although I do think we reached this story point rather quickly.- Pawter returns- Anything Johnny As far as the bad: - Pretty much everything else. I mean, it was Dark Matter worthy it was that bad.- Nothing in this episode will matter other than the fact that Dutch & D’avin hookedup. “Most fans were dreading the Dutch/D'avin hookup and what it would mean for the team. However, I must say it doesn't seem the writers are taking a predictable turn with that arc. Let's give them a shot to see what they come up with, shall we?” It’s not “what they come up with”, it’s how do they fix it. Other than that your review find excuses (and that’s what they are) to try and explain it. I get that Dutch is strong badass woman and can sleep with whoever she wants to and likely has. Also, most shows are giving there strong independent female characters healthy sexual appetites to show that they are strong and independent. It’s the “Girls” effect. But this hookup hasn’t done either character any favours, AND WAS COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY!!! It served no purpose whatsoever. I was truly hoping that this show (or for god’s sake ANY show) could do away with the idiotic love triangle trope where once two people sleep together one (or both) realize they actually have feelings for someone else. It cheapens the characters beyond the telling of the story. Mark my word, by sleeping with D’avin and almost losing Johnny, Dutch has now realized that Johnny is more important to her. Way to make your character shallow. I really liked this summer show because it was fun for 5 episodes, now that they’ve turned up the drama in the last 2 episodes it’s losing a lot of its shine.
I have to agree with you. I absolutely hate hate hate triangles as much as I hate shippers. You had a wonderful family with Dutch and Johnny and how would you feel if you walked in with your brother and sister humping? Well - maybe a soap. The point is that it is a family betrayal and really little to do with sex per se. I also agree with Henry that Johnny is the glue for the show. But I still love the show and hope it gets a renewal.
You see, what I don't get is that they had a recipe that was working with the "family" of Dutch, Johnny and D'avin. Why mess that up by having essentially the "brother screw the sister" for NO apparent reason other than a gratuitous sex scene. I'd like to think there's a story payoff to this but I don't see it. I doubt it's ever mentioned again.
The way I see it, Johnny had half a decade to develop that mentality towards Dutch. And it takes more than someone telling you to view someone as a sibling for you to hold that view. I say male bf is like my brother but after 9 years of friendship I earned that view. Anyways, this show is about grown ups I am sure they can find a way to resolve their differences like they have in the past. They don't need to let this become an unnecessary burden on what they developed till this point.
There is no idiotic love triangle here, you're jumping the gun. Wait and see how the writers "fix it" since you prefer that term, before deciding you know exactly where the story is going. I know for a fact your assumptions are incorrect. Keep watching, you might be pleasantly surprised ;)
Dutch slept with her bf brother. Even if Johnny was a girl the triangle exist. It's idiotic. I agree with CaptM. Pree conversation with J solidified the triangle. Johnny stated he would chose Dutch over Davin. Meaning he would have to make a choice between one or the other. Triangle. They should have left this for s5 not s1. This has TVD in reverse all over it.. If you see Dav as Damon and Johnny as Stefan. I've gave it a shot now I'm out. No ALIENS , Androids, and ext.. The Quad.
Modern Family has been shit since the second season! Utter shit now!
I think sex drugs and rock and roll is boring.....not sure I can keep watching it...........
I am really pulling for Paul and Derrick the only two non-broken gays.
Great show, but I do not like the heavy emphasis on the Fernando criminal stuff. I like the computer hacking parts, big business dramas, and related plots. I am not that excited about another crime show involving killers. That's not why I started watching the show. I hope they get back to what makes the show unique.
My favorite story line of this season has been Mallory and the false prophet. I really missed this aspect in this episode. They better get back to that story line and I am so curious how the false prophet is going to tie in with the other story lines.
Yeah they answered a lot of questions about New Delphi and Julian but burning through the story is great. There's so much to tell they don't need to take it slow. Especially considering that most Syfy shows never make it past a 5th season. -William is all in David's head and David never saw him die, only assumes he's dead so that means he could still be alive. -I like Gates, but am meh on the brewing romance thing with Claire.-If Uriel is alive, she won't be in this season from what I've heard on Twitter. -I was surprised Gabriel didn't kill Januck (spelled Janeck on Amazon's subtitles) too. Gabriel is definitely scary when angry [so is Michael]. I laughed though when he told Januck while possessing him that Bourbon was whiskey. -I'm sad Pete is possessed again, but I saw promotional photos of him as an 8 ball so I wasn't surprised. (I love spoilers too much to avoid them. I like being spoiled like that.) -Noma whacking Julian in the face with a wing was fun to watch. She keeps kicking butt. I'm surprised the actress isn't part of the main cast considering how much she is on the show now. -Michael and Gabriel's scenes were very interesting to me as usual. Messed up brotherhood they have, yet it is obvious they still care about each other - at least for their survival anyway (Gabriel telling Michael he can't go to New Delphi alone). Neither one has a problem hurting each other physically (Michael beating up Gabriel out of anger) and emotionally (Gabriel lying to Michael about Alex being dead - like Uriel's death wasn't devastating enough!). -Speaking of Gabriel lying about Alex - loved the way Michael insisted he was alive. He reacted to Uriel's death badly too, but the way he said "He's alive!" Wow. -I often love the little scenes in this show just as much as the bigger ones. Like when Michael first lands and looks through Alex's Jeep, finding his pocket knife. The music was so sentimental. I like that scene a lot.

William is a hallucination. It's all in David's head.
Nope William another being - in the weirdest of worlds he would be the Prophet.
Where are you getting that? It's pretty obvious that he was hallucinating.
Oh you mean the famous "intuitively obvious to even the most casual observer"?
