I'm so in love with Miguel gomez character on the show. He doesn't have any social media :-/ Marry me! IG: yungcharm
I agree with the other comments, Carissa. This is a great review. I started the season late, just tuning in about four episodes ago. After watching that one episode, I went back and binge-watched it from the beginning. No regrets so far. You wondered about what would attract Detective Jim to Abby. Although she doesn't do a damned thing for me, I can see how such a mercurial and highly sexual woman would ensnare a lesser man (and yeah, right now that's what Jim looks like). She's unpredictable - even when she appears to be on the verge of a smile, you just don't know if she'll be happy or raging angry - the mark of an excellent actor. Maybe she challenges him. I don't know. When he first showed up on the scene, I got the sense maybe he was being a great detective, and purposefully befriending her in order to take Ray down. Now it looks like he's just a chump. But maybe not - the writers can still have a twist in mind for him. The more I think about it, the more I can't see him murdering anyone just for her sake. He might still be the snake in the grass I'd sort of hoped he would be. I'm really mystified about what looks like an attraction of sorts from Ray to a guy who should be his nemesis: Steve Knight. The man is not Ray's friend. I keep expecting Ray to get fed up with him and either beat him to within an inch of his life or worse. Yet, he has a strange fascination to him. It's disturbing and curious. I wonder if Steve's charisma somehow reminds Ray of his abusive priest?
Thanks Doug! Even given what you said about Abby and her impulsive nature, I still can't imagine why any sane person would want to get involved with her. I, too, am still hoping that Jim turns out to be more than expected. If not, I have to question his ability to do his job. A little more background on Abby before deciding to do harm to Cookie would have been in order! I'm not sure about Steve. He's definitely a strange man, but the schtick he sells makes sense. He has the right ideas about things even if he's not the best person to be selling them. It seems he might be looking for someone who can match his own charisma (which Ray can do) and perhaps that's why he doesn't get angry at Ray's involvement with Ashley. At first I was repulsed by Steve. After he opened the door and offered an ear to Ray, I started to find him more fascinating than repulsive. Maybe they'll be good for each other in an odd way.
Alison Argent, definitely!!!
Well if they are going to spend more time on Alaric, Tyler, Luke and Matt I will be watching more this season. If I don't have to put up with the never ending Delenda/Stenelna triumvirate I will be happy.
haha. "ultimate custody battle"
Kol! About time!
Actually, it could be Finn. We all know how close him and his mother were.
it is FINN
Oh, I know it's Finn who came back with Ester. I mean, Kol wouldn't team up with his mother, and I doubt Ester cares for Kol's sadistic behaviors. I meant Kol is back(at least in flashbacks). If you pause at 3:17 that's him in what looks like a flashback.
WTF?! I really have to wonder what the writers are doing here. Last week, we see Cliff Barnes being left to rot in prison forever for a crime he did not commit. A week before that, we see Pamela irate that Sue Ellen and Ann kept the John Ross/Emma Ryland affair from her. Now we see Pamela claiming that she wants to help Ann? Really? Getting in bed with Arab oil sheiks to get Ewing Global back does not help Ann. And how does Pamela and John Ross think that buying back Ewing Global with foreign money is going to be legal from drug dealers who made an illegal deal to take the company in the first place? Again, no sense in any of this. Sorry writers, but some of us are paying attendtion and you blew that among other things. Bobby waltzing into a Mexican drug cartel safe house where American hostages are being held, ALONE? REALLY? Who writes this garbage? Real drug dealers would have shot him on sight no questions asked for fear he was followed there. And he thinks he can make a deal and TRUST THESE KILLERS? HOW STUPID CAN BOBBY BE? Bobby makes Emma look like a Rhodes Scholar by comparison. This episode was all over the place. Nothing was coherent or made any sense. If Nicholas' wife knew about Elena all the time, why help Christopher now? And Nicholas wanting to cut a deal now? What gives? Surely he knows that this move is a death sentence for himself and Elena. About the only thing I liked about tonight's episode was Judith Ryland's grief and anguish over Emma being Kidnapped and then when she thought Emma was dead her reaction was golden. Genuine grief if there ever was any. She truly loves Emma with all her heart and that is a side of Judith Ryland I thought we would never see. Genuine love for her granddaughter. The promo says a Ewing will die in the Season Finale. Only one name comes to mind: Ann Ewing. She has had little role other than her life revolving around Emma, and with Bobby's old flame Melinda Clarke coming back, it stands to reason that Ann is the one who bites the bullet. Now that Pamela has become the new CLIFF BARNES, (Knowing that the Barnes Ewing feud led her father to do the most heinous things, murder among them), I can't imagine how she thinks that picking up where her father left off is somehow GOOD FOR HER. Guess the Barnes Ewing feud will NEVER END. Well, Boxed In was a bust of sorts, let's see if the Season Finale lets Dallas end on a good note. The show needs a good ending before season 4........................
Epic can't wait <3
I think this is a great show. I think I follow most of what is happening. I have some theories as well - I think the aliens are nearly indestructable fungi that can live and travel in space and are almost immortal. They can spread in the form of spores so small they are nearly undetectable. Even as fungi and spores, they have the power to control people's perceptions, impregnate people, and communicate across vast expanses of space (sending messages to or somehow controlling Circles). They are very intelligent and able to tap into people's most emotionally charged memories. I think their goal is for the Seraphin to crash and spread their spores around the earth so they can impregnate women, feed on humans, grow into alien/human babies like Circles, and take over the earth, making humans their zombie like servants. Would they still be nearly immortal in their new half human form, though? What about Circle's wound? I wonder if the bomb planted in Ethan will end up being used somehow to blow up the Seraphin in deep space. I wouldn't mind seeing the show end by Ethan (minus the bomb) helping Molly and her husband to escape into space to try to find a new planet to inhabit because earth is lost beyond hope to a more advanced species.
No way the Pilot was #1. It was a good episode, but at this point it shouldn't even be in the top 10 (given all the good episodes that followed). Off the top of my head, I'd consider the following episodes for a top 10 positions instead: Home, Faith, All Hell Breaks Loose, In My Time of Dying, Mystery Spot, Death's Door, Weekend at Bobby's, The Mentalist and Of Grave Importance.
There's so many good episodes to choose from. Like your choices.
