Yep this was a real roller coaster ride of an episode and I absolutely love how they totally circumvented the fanboy pundits who knew how things would turn out after all the multiple realities of the Flash books. Please God don't let there me more multiple versions of the Flash other than the complexities introduced here. I don't need Wally West, Bart Allen, or the other generations it would totally sink the series. This was a good way to sort of resolve the Iris/Barry conundrum did they or didn't they? At least we got the fan-pleaser scene.

I'm late to the dance..........LOL I think this season is all about Norma realizing she's losing all control of Norman. I can't quite figure out where they are going with Dylan--I guess time will tell on that one. But I wouldn't be surprised if Dylan ends up killing Uncle Daddy............ Emma--this girl can't be that stupid to not see what is going on with Norman.............She saw him get in the car with Annika and now Annika is gone........how can she not entertain the thought that Norman had something to do with it? What about that awkward goodbye with Norma and Romero..............

I admit I was surprised at how much I liked the show - I was expecting something more derivative of the Walking Dead. Instead it was closer to Warm Bodies. They were smart to put it after the Flash which also requires some intelligence to follow.

I too agree this wasn't a fireball of an episode and it disappointed me. I feel like the whole season including 4a the main characters just haven't been themselves. I have to say I am not a fan of using Disney characters to move seasons forward. I want backstories on the main characters and we are only getting backstories really on the Villians, I feel like the mains are thrown in to have a connection but sometimes those connections feel forced and not really who,the main characters are. I was looking forward to much about this season after the end of season 3 and so far I haven't really been caught like I have been the past three seasons- I loved the wedding at end of S3 with RB Nd that has been destroyed- I feel like CS still takes two steps forward and three steps back- the slow burn of this couple is taking way too long; I don't like the way the OQ story is using Marian and I haven't liked Snow at all. And there is way way too much focus on the current Villians, even though I like some of the Villians. I hope this series gets it's spark back. I love the series- it is different than the apocalyptic ones we see on Tv now- I love happy endings and the search for true love- and I love each of the main characters but I need them back!

Scandal Round Table: A Vote for Susan Ross?

I agree that Susan is not the dummy that Mellie is banking on and she has a challenge that she's not preparing for or expects.
I too thought that B613 was a dead issue. It seems really outlandish that Huck's wife doesn't understand how dangerous that group is and believe that the government will protect her. I see lots of blood and dead bodies ahead.

You should have included Brennan in that too She drinks as much as him(although she is going to stop for awhile pretty soon

The Returned Season 1 Episode 2 Review: Simon

I'm really interested to see where this series leads. It's very intriguing and has a definite air of mystery to it but there are so many issues being juggled that I really hope the series has time to play them out before A&E axes them. Yes, A&E is FAMOUS for axing scripted drama series without notice. I can name three right off the top of my head and they all were favorites of mine. So, I watch with caution during this series since if it's doesn't meet the rating requirements for A&E, then it will mysteriously disappear. I'm also curious why A&E didn't really put any effort into promoting this really great drama? I didn't find out about it until I watched the first episode of this season's Bates Motel. But, I did love how A&E offered the viewers to have a chance to watch the second episode of The Returned right after watching the pilot episode. So many questions regarding this very mysterious series. How did Simon die? No one has come forth with that one yet. The female deputy that gave Julie the very intense look at the station...could they be secrete lovers? Hmmm...why would the sheriff kill Simon? But, I guess we would have to figure out how Simon died in the first place to actually put those pieces together. Why are the Returned eating so much? It's just odd that the writers focused on that fact? Are they going to turn into flesh eaters? Lord, I hope not! What a clique! Victor, where to even begin with him? His creepy and very odd. Maybe he did bring Julie back and she was the first to Return? Why is the neighbor so damn rude and nosey? What does she know about him that we don't? Lena and her sister have serious issues to work out. I can certainly understand the conflict there! Peter is another odd character and when u say odd I really mean creepy. But I think that's the entire tone of this series is that it's mysterious and creepy. I'm can't wait to see how the episodes play out. I really wanted Simon to speak to Rowan but he just barely speaks and only looked at her as she poured her heart out to him. That was so heartbreaking and very believable. The twin sisters' reactions are very believable too. But their parents are just accepting this without a whole lot of questions? If my child came back from the dead I would be in serious shock! Not to mention, completely filled with questions. They are acting way too calm and it's rather disturbing and a bit unbelievable. This series has a lot to reveal and I think it's fair to say that we have barely even scratched the tip of the iceburg on this with just two episodes. So, I for one, will be tuning in to see how everything unfolds as long as A&E keeps the series in air.

So many questions! Let's hope they follow through and give us answers!

The ending of this episode was soooooo powerful - Dr. Herman and Arizona's interaction was great, and just the facial expressions they made conveyed so much. Geena Davis has really been fantastic in her portrayal of Dr. Herman and this episode was another great example. I also really loved the song they used at the end, "Seasons" by Hollow Wood - it really added to the emotional weight of it all.
