I really enjoyed this episode! It was quite funny. I actually liked Lauren in this, her interactions with Kenzi were amusing and I loved that they aired out their stuff. I thought you did a decent job reviewing and I fully understand your point. I hate that it always boils down to being accused of homophobia if you don't care for Lauren and Bo when that isn't the case. It is Lauren as a character, she comes across as stiff and stoic. On a show where other characters have a bit of bite and humor she always falls flat. It does affect her relationship with Bo. Sex aside they come across as completely incompatible. And no, I'm not being homophobic. I do like Bo with Dyson. Very much, but I seen more chemistry sbd fire between Bo and TAMSIN( who I really like. Nice addition) and would choose her and Bo over Bo and Lauren any day. I'm going to miss Vex! I really loved him and his chemistry with Kenzi.
I think they struggled at times to make reasonable and realistic correlations as far as transitioning between the flashbacks and how they were triggered by the present. I also think the flashbacks felt incomplete somehow. But I stol felt this was a truly beautiful episode. It was unbelievably touching and invoked the appropriate emotions. It was fitting for an Abby episode. I thought the young Abby was brilliant. Startlingly good mannerisms. I loved the transition from grieving Ziva to a more at peace one, and that it was acknowledged and not forced. Not too many shows pull off the transition between gut wrenching drama and everyday humor like this show. I absolutely LOVED the scenes with Abby and McGee but especially her and Gibbs. Their moments always make me smile but it was especially beautiful. I continue to enjoy the extra emphasis on the family dynamic this season.
-Bailey's quip about some of them not having millions to fall back on. I loved the realistic tension of that situation was being addressed. It isn't their fault that they almost died but nevertheless the pieces fell a certain way and now all these people are impacted by this lawsuit. After Dereks self righteous blame fest with Owen the previous week it was interesting to see him and the others receive a bit of a bite.-Staff. Definitely would cut staff. The irony of all these cuts is that's what got them in trouble with the plane crash in the first place.-Ross and Stephanie-Not necessarily, no.-April needs to be single for a bit.
@Robin he is Todd Williams. Just recently he played a vampire hunter on the Vampire Diaries. I think he was in Chicago Code before that and he used to play a detective on the first couple of seasons of In Plain Sight. Those are the things I'm most familiar with. I agree completely with this review. I should probably avoid my Angelo rant because it'll be redundant but I'm so over his character being shredded and Bay was out of line. At least Angelo spends time with her, ironically enough more than regina. I liked that Trevor got something out of Daphne but honestly the way she's treated him...he's too good for her.
Ah and I'm back to being annoyed or indifferent to Nora. Her bonding with the young teen was nice. I'm not sure if I'm ready to see another werewolf in their circle but I liked the teen well enough. She was spunky. I could see papa wolf taking her in...but nora seems fond of her. Its a pity about Henry. He was so harsh to both josh and aiden. That was rough. Sally was sally. Lol! This thing with the witch is interesting. Season three is shaping up to be their best yet!
There is something very refreshing about this show. I like it. The other characters are starting to develop nicely. Dorritt does seem to switch up personality wise but I think they're finding her footing as endearing but pesky little sister. I continue to love the relationship between Carrie and her father. It's fantastically written. Especially his struggles to raise two teen girls alone. I find Sebastian the charming but sweet bad boy great. And yes, I definitely missed Walt.
Julian was so clearly a red herring that it made things far from suspenseful. I like his complicated relationship with Joanna. They bring out interesting sides in each other. I'm still mostly suspicious of Sofia. I'm now suspicious of the father and I love this more vulnerable side to Edward.
-Stefan was MVP. "You don't know what I look like when I'm not in love with you." BOOM! That was wonderful. Love biyter, snarky Stefan.-Hell it was ridiculous that Sheriff Forbes arrested Shane to begin with. Gonna go with Damon telling Jeremy to run before he kills him. Even the great Ian Smolderhaulder couldn't sell that one. He was reciting it like WTF am I doing right now.-while crazy sex is the best sex, LOVE you snarky Stefan! Gotta go with Delena. We actually seen some skin even if it was rudely interrupted with Steroline whining. Hell even Damon and Bex had a hotter scene. Her face said it all.-Please let it be Elijah.-Don't care.
Repition and the other characters' frequent talk about him but without actually showing me why he's any worse than any of the other characters. Because,that I've yet to see! Especially out of the adults, and I'm not a fan of any of them but I suppose them being flawed is the purpose
@LelahRose Angelo wasn't obligated to tell Regina anything about this pregnant woman when he didn't know everything going on with her either. Then he told her and she behaved as though he somehow cheated on her when they weren't even together. I think the lines about honesty are a bit too murky. At what point is he allowed to have private business that he's dealing with? I don't like or understand why he's required to be an open book and no one else is. I also don't understand why his being dishonest is any different than Regina being dishonest. And while they've been known to villianize her on occasion it is never to the extent of Angelo. Just like I don't understand how. Regina is allowed to be changed and recovered and no one chooses to believe that he is. He's paying and taking the blame for he and Regina 's past, and he's blamed for everything imaginable now. I just don't see where its warranted, I feel like they're trying to brainwash me into seeing him a certain way with repitition and w/o showing me why he's any worse than any of the other characters.
