Greek Review: "Midnight Clear"

by at . Comments

This was exactly the Greek I had been waiting for all season. There was witty banter, a party, and all of the core characters in one room. It was classic Greek and it felt good.

As proven on "Midnight Clear," there is nothing like a snow storm to make you face your issues and there could not have been a more fun place than Dobblers for all the awkward questions and kisses.

Greek Snowstorm

I know that best friends fight, but I was so over the Casey/Ashleigh argument. With all the relationships that go on in this show, Casey and Ash’s friendship is at the heart and needs to stay that way. 

As for Rusty and Ashleigh... Rashleigh? Both of these characters are great, but I'm not sure I can get on board with the romance and tension going on between them. It just doesn’t seem natural.

It is a little awkward to watch, kind of like they're brother and sister. I'm intrigued by the possibility for now of Simon and want to see this explored a little more. Besides, how hilarious was it when everyone watched Ash kiss the professor? Classic.

This episode also marked the return of Evan being more than his usual cocky self. We saw him being the rude, selfish jerk we had gotten to know a few years ago. Obviously, no one is supposed to like this version of Evan, but I can’t help enjoy the nostalgia as the final semester comes to an end. (Side note: it was about time Rebecca got her spine back!)

I was excited when Dale decided to pledge and it felt as though he would be getting his own, real story. The arc was supposed to be funny, but it's having a hard time holding my interest.

Needless to say, Calvin’s 21st birthday was probably not his best birthday, but it was a great one for the viewers. This was a solid hour, bringing back that first season feeling, while setting up legit storylines for the end of the show. The only thing that could have made it better for me would be some Catherine and Beaver time.

What did you think, TV Fanatics? Would you rather see Ash with Simon or Rusty? Glad Rebecca kicked Evan to the curb? What do you want to happen in the second half of the season? Do you believe in the law school curse?

I agree, this was just a great episode all around. I wish there were more time for the whole cast to just sit around and play games, because their fun really came through on scren. Check out my full review here.

Evan is so all over the place. It seemed like last season they were trying to redeem him. Even after his friendship with Cappie broke down he still wasn't acting like the utter jerk he was during season 2 and him and Rebecca actually seemed like a good pairing. But now that is going out the window and I guess they are showing that really, he's just a jerk. Because the way he was treating Rebecca was definitely more than just I'm stressed out over school, it was I don't have respect for you. I'm glad Rebecca finally stood up to him, but I am disappointed that this is who Evan really is.

When I heard about an episode were the gang is all together I was excited and I think it delivered pretty well. Though part of me was hoping for a Cappie and Evan reconciliation I can't help but enjoy the return of the Casey-Cappie-Evan love triangle. As Beaver said it's really never over. I loved all the little throwbacks to things like Cap'n Dale and their book club, Cyprus Rhode finally getting cold weather and snow.

Ashleigh became a fan of Color Me Bad?

Casey

I can't believe Casey took the which Friends test are you and she is our Rachel? More like Ross or Gunther.

Ashleigh
