Haha. You know things are bad when the good news is that you have Dengue Fever!
I guess they just had to make Kara just as stupid as Danny. He risked the whole ship for her after all.. lets repay the favor! That wasn't just silly! Her behavior was outright criminal neglect. Moving between sections during a lockdown? Might as well pass the virus around in syringes. Chandler was as lenient as it goes here. I liked them coming clear with the crew. There was no question that they would but the writers did a descent job getting us there. A little thing that bugged me: Where did they get the Plexiglas monkey cages? A bigger thing that bugged me: The two ton cheese-ball that was the reenlist scene. I have no problem with the concept but did they have to make it so cliched? We have seen the "surprising reveal of soldiers stepping up and doing the right thing in front of the humbled CO" done to death.
The writing was all over the place with these past two episodes. One thing has bugged me from the get-go with this one. How is it that Violet responded to Jason's betrayal by at first giving him a "night to remember"? Doesn't seem to be true to her character, given her trigger temper. Or true to any character in real life. The minute you put your ear to the door and hear your significant other getting it on with someone else - probably the last thing that crosses your mind is the thought "well I'd better fix this by being a better lover".
"Hey writers, we knew about Ben being a love-sick-guilt-ridden puppy. There was no need to bang us over the head with it. Then again, you gave us a Sarah Carter bra-scene.. errr.... still unnecessary." But what is this? Anne getting real character development? She is still psycho-mom, don't get me wrong but this I can at least work with. Even lodes formed a sentence or two this episode I didn't have to cringe at. One could almost think the show is getting back on track! Whats bugging me is that the whole Lexi storyline just isn't anything original. Unless the writers throw us a really good curve ball this has been done and done better. Over all when thinking back on what a pacing nightmare this season has been so far I'm happy with the episode.
How stupid was Kyle? oh boy oh boy
I knew the Lettie Mae story line was going to be painful and so far I see my suspicions confirmed... yes its less annoying this week because of Lafayette but that still does not make me interested in the story line even a little. Worst of all is that I fear the writers are going to latch the last arc of the show onto Lettie Maes back.. I'm already cringing. I liked how they made Sarah Newlans blood the cure. I wonder how they will make it work. Is drinking a cured vampires blood enough to heal another, like snowball effect, or do we keep Sarah around to make a cure.. in any case, can we still see Sarah getting her head twisted off in the end? Pretty please? What ticked me off this week is how it turns out that the writers set Adelind and Andys son up only to have them act as scorn-collateral for Violet. How lazy was that! I completely agree with @San in that regard.
I almost can't believe how surprised Abby looked when she read BRIBE on that notepad!She rewarded Ray for the house after all.. what a hypocrite! Not excusing Ray in this, he obviously wants to deal with his marriage, but the man is just as clueless. Now fate is dangling another strong woman in front of his eyes.. I wonder.. Chances are that the writers want to elude to a possible affair but redeem Ray by not going for it.
Unless Tara has some cure hidden in the garden I'm still not interested AT ALL in Laetie Mae's storyline. So I don't care whether it's just imagination or something real. And how on earth could Andy and Holly leave in broad daylight and still not be at the tree house by night? I know Adeline and her boyfriend are teenagers and everything, but after all what happend how could they stay out at night? Hormons or not, that's incredibly dumb and lazy writing ("Hey, we need to get some tension and send Violet on a vendetta so let's make her kidnap the girl Jessica cares about. Because surely the fans don't want to see that much of the characters this series started with all those years ago.") Btw they're also telling me in all the years after vampires came out in the open no fanger ever thought a career in law might be useful? Or that the former king of Lousiana doesn't have any (better) contacts?
Totally agrre with you on the incoherences of the writers in this last season.They really should get fans proof read their sripts before filming ;) just saying ... Nevertheless, there was some great stuff to watch with Eric, Pam and Sarah Newlin (as always) and this was enough to make my day ... The last scene, when arriving at Sarah's sister house with the Karma music starting to play reminded me of Taranatinos's movies if you ask me .... Quentin, you should think "Skarsgard" for your next one ! He's definitively your kind of badasss ...
I swear the dialogue and the storylines in this show are so cliche
As long as Rebecca is the next to die I will be ok with the show crazy science teachers are not needed under the dome... Angie was killed by a Man could it be Sam or lyle or the Dome..
