This show has always had a campy feel and cheesy moments but I found there was an abundance of them in this episode and not always in the best of ways. I found both the court cases were rushed. They were I interesting in their own right, especially the intelligence one, but they weren't fleshed out enough and were resolved too quickly in favor of getting to the "more important "happenings of the episode. Luke reinserting himself into Jane /Debs life again after lacking presence for most of the season was contrived. Real Jane was an interesting development and she wasn't nearly as pleasant. Don't think I'm going to like her. I haven't a clue why she wouldn't go on and be happy and I don't understand how she could say deb screwed up her life. Her returning should be interesting, how she returned with that button again was uninspired and Fred, why so reckless,?
Gabriel Mann all the way.
Hmm and Harvey 's weakness is...the other three members of the fantastic four ( Mike, Jessica, and Donna) .
That was easily the best episode of the season thus far. I wasn't a huge Simon fan though I found him more intriguing towards the end, but I felt sympathy when he died. My annoyance with Simon was more so my annoyance with Annie for falling for him in that way that she does. I'm not the least bit surprised about Lena. She's cutthroats a renegade and her uber feminism grated my nerves because she had a way of putting other women down in the process . Annie was the up and coming and Lena couldn't lose her reputation to the next generation of female spies. The intensity of this episode was insane and the turmoil of the Annie and Auggie dynamic was riveting.
I agree on all the points. An A+ season for sure. Although I have a tough time choosing a breakout character because season two did a fantastic job of bringing Donna, Louis, and Jessica to the forefront more than they were in season one.
- Andy and Nick reciting the oath.- nick and andy. He has easily become one of if not my favorite character on the show.-always- oddly enough I felt for a while there their relationship was a very unorthodox but cathartic way for both of them to get through it. Of course that was when their relationship was some weird cross between frenemies and siblings. Then they kissed and dov got beat up and its bad.-she's best as a detective and I like her working with Luke. He doesn't coddle her like the others and she needs that.
I'm perfectly okay with Sam and andy where they are now. Sam needs the space. I get it and I can't pretend as though what he said about andy affecting his ability to do his job isn't true. In some ways he did lose himself in her and it affected the job. It's why I sometimes hated that they partnered up so much. I feel and kind of get Sam. I think I kinda like Luke again. I hope he stays. He would be good for Tracy because he won't treat her like she's fragile like everybody else is doing. Nick continues to be one of my favorite characters. Thank goodness because most of the characters I either don't like at all like Gail or I'm mostly indifferent. And my other favorite character, Dov., the relationship threw me. I was concerned in the beginning but then it seemed unorthodox but cathartic for both but romance? Now I'm back to being concerned. This won't end well if dov being beat up isn't enough of an indicator.
Rachel was the perfect support system this episode and for once wasn't too annoying. When it came time for that Rom com like ending I cringed. Tess id just ugh. She lost me as soon as she was indecently flirting and what not at his grandmothers funeral and clearly exploiting the guy when he's most Vulnerable. And the whole waltzing past the door. Sure married lady. Louis stepped in it big. He went back to being slimey. He got too carried away. He always failed to see that they all were like a dysfunctional family. They hassle each other regularly and if he ever bothered yo notice he'd see that they ALL hassle each other he isn't the only "victim "but they always respected him and had and would have his back. Now it appears instead of keeping his head down for a bit he'll jump pm the Mike not going to law school thing again.
I loved this episode. I do agree with the reviewer that it seemed to have been wrapped up a bitter too quick. Jessica oz my girl and Harvey is my guy but it would have been cool to see them indisposed a little longer. I loved that they brought my favorite relationships /dynamics in the forefront in their own way. The Mike Harvey bromance had been lacking some this season but from Mike going off on Harvey to then getting stoned together, the elevator, almost assaulting Louis, Mike voting with the partners and celebrating with the other three members of the fantastic four it was great. Also donna and Harvey was out there, her loyalty to him regardless. Loved it. And Harvey and Jessica which doesn't get enough praise if you ask me,their loyalty to each other if you go I go, implication that they once got stoned together too...their great indefinable but deep relationship. Loved that all of those got attention. And donna and Jessica shared the screen again they should do that more those women are incredible! Rachel didn't annoy me for a change, she was the perfect support system, the set up for the end was so Rom com I cringed a bit. Tess though, ugh. She spent the service flirting with Mike which was indecent then just ugh. And Louis is on the out again. He never understood that they all were like a family and that even though they hassles him it was affectionately so. They all hassle each other. Now he's just oy.
They need to trim the fat. I wasn't interested in Meredith as a character when she came in and I probably won't be come the Fall. There are already enough characters to show and balance out and as much as I like TVD, they don't always do a great job of developing most of its characters. It only becomes kore problematic when they keep bringing more characters into the fold for extended periods of time.
