I hope the actors and others closely involved in creating and producing this series will read these fan comments because (judging from interviews I've seen) I don't think they realize what an exceptional show they gave us. They don't see it as we do, with all the seamless depth and substance that is not apparent in production with its endless takes and scene setups. For them the process is so much like making sausage; plot ideas come and go, with good ones sometimes discarded and others not fully realized. Simon wanted Jane to be a tragic figure with a tragic (Moby Dick?) ending; fortunately he was outvoted. By all accounts there was never a really clear idea where the story should go but the writers and Simon and Robin created a beautiful one through their artistry and chemistry - a sense of how things should be. And so the story evolved from the lonely tragic figure just seeking revenge to his development as a fully redeemed man who overcame his fears and self-hatred and was able to love and be loved again. There was talk that the story should have ended with S3 or S6, but we know from seeing S7 what a mistake that would have been. So much would have been lost! We needed the story to come full circle and with S7 it did. We don't have the frustration of wondering what happened next. We know all will be well with these people we've come to love, fictional though they are.
I agree with you the actors underestimated the power of this series (Baker in particular) - their performances were outstanding and they can be proud of what they have achieved.
Great episode, but Im a little disappointed at them not Utilizing Michael Socha into their main plot. He is the King of Wonderland, unbeknowist to them all, but he needs to really be used more.
I really liked the first episode. It was nice to see James Van Der Beek not doing "over the top" of whatever his character is supposed to be. It is a comfortable fit in the CSI franchise. I am eager to see where it goes.
Last night's episode was a little predictable but definitely not bad. I think Harvey loves Donna (romantically) but refuses to let himself go there emotionally because he doesn't know how that will change their relationship. Harvey has never had a successful romantic relationship and most of that ties back to his issues with his mom cheating on his dad. The only real successful relationship he HAS had, has been with Donna. I think part of him thinks that if they go down the road of romantic relationship, he'll screw it up and lose her. However, his indecisiveness cost him their relationship anyway. Donna loves Harvey and in some senses, she's done a good job of convincing herself that she was okay with how their relationship is. But then Harvey changed all that by basically telling everyone and their brother that Donna was "different", that he thought of them as "one and the same person" and the ultimate "You know I love you." When he did that, he blew the doors off of what they had because now that Donna has seen that he cares for as more than a friend, she wants to try a relationship. When she confronted Harvey, he was never able to vocalize how exactly he loved her. To me, if he loved her as only a friend, he would have been able to tell her that. She made the power move by removing herself from the situation. She had to protect her heart since she admitted that their working partnership no longer worked for her. But she also opened the door in case Harvey decided to pursue her because they wouldn't have the complication of Harvey being her boss anymore. It will be interesting to see how next season plays out because Donna is going to work with Louis for a while. And knowing Louis, he's going to dig around until he figures out why Donna decided to work for him instead of continuing to work for Harvey. Donna already admitted to Louis that she and Harvey slept together years ago so I'm sure there will be some sort of a confrontation down the road. I hope though, that they make a decision (hopefully to get Harvey and Donna together) by the mid season or season finale of season five. If they wait too long, the moment will pass the characters by.
What a joke and I hope the writers know it. "Blood for blood" my ass. Finn kills some villagers, HE MUST PAY THE PRICE! Mount Weather fires a MISSILE wiping out a village!! Oh it's okay, it's fine as long as we get back our captured Grounders. Logic?
Clarke called Lexa out on her hypocrisy last ep and she was right
Its called "politics", you know.. Just try turning on the News.... ;-)
A truly exquisite series finale!
TV Line & EW are much easier. They list shows by network and put info right next to show. Your system is inefficient & time-consuming.
I don't think Will has a hatred for other gay men, I think he's just doing his best to separate himself from gay men so people won't realize he's gay. Everyone kept saying that Kevin was a good writing fit for Will and the coward that he is panicked thinking that meant they suspected he was gay as well. So I think he was just going out of his way to prevent people from thinking he may be gay. I think it's clear that Maddie will be Deacon's match. Rayna would do it in a heartbeat, like Scarlett offered to do. Maddie would do it too, but she's so young that Teddy and Rayna will both be unsure if it's wise to let Maddie do it. That's the only way the drama comes in. And this is a drama. No drama if Rayna's the match. I feel bad for Luke. I know he was a jerk and lashed out at Rayna at the CMA's and after the called off wedding. But I truly believe he really loved her and he's struggling. So to see her up there with Deacon, was heartbreaking for him. I actually like Luke and Rayna together (when he's being a good guy). The only problem with Rayna being with Luke, is she can't be with Deacon and Rayna belongs with Deacon.
I don't think Will hates other gay men, but his insecurities make him act like it.
Mike and Rachela are so borring
Yes! Dear God thank you! I was starting to think I was the only one...
She looks really intimidating and badass-perfect choice!
