Hey! That's a really cool observation about Anthony Dimmond and his appearance. He really was there to show that Hannibal accepts no substitutes. Okay, please tell me where you saw Zachary Quinto. I knew he was supposed to be in the episode, but I watched it twice and missed him both times!
Great review! I agree - there is just so much going on in that show, and it's hard to keep track of who is who doing what and when. I appreciate that they're making a period show, but it almost seems like they're trying to cover too much ground regarding that period. Music, Manson, sexism, racial tension, hippies, drugs, Vietnam - I feel like they're trying to explore all of those things equally, and it's swamping the show. I thought that they'd wait longer before Sam and Grace hooked up, to be honest. And I really don't understand why they would introduce such a negative character trait in Sam so flippantly. It just seemed like such a weird thing to do. It doesn't really fit with anything else we've learned about him, and we were already aware that he was a flawed character anyway.
So would I! I hope we'll start getting our fill of them next week.
I agree! The title of this episode means "appetizer", so I'm willing to bet that this was just to whet our appetites and makes us want more. I'm not sure what Hannibal knows. As much as they showed us about the two, we still don't know what exactly the deal is. I think Bedelia thought that he was on to her, that's why she panicked and tried to run when he started talking about betrayal during his lecture. I don't think Hannibal will kill Bedelia any time soon - he wants the company. She's no Will Graham, but she'll do for now.
My favourite was "So long and thanks for all the fish." Cisco is the greatest.
You're right, that is true. Season 1 and 2 had great finales. This season's just left such a sour taste in my mouth.
I agree, it's definitely one of the best episodes they've delivered. It's right up there with "The Party" from last season, which was my favourite episode up till now.
I wondered about that! I knew it was a Flash helmet, but I was curious about why THAT was Eobard's cue to leave. I wonder how much it's going to play into next season.
Fantastic review, Carissa. You hit everything that made this great. This was such an amazing episode, and everyone delivered in spades, Eddie's sacrifice was so surprising and so intense - what a way to go, man. I thought one of the most interesting things about this episode was how they gave us a beautiful look into the mind and motivation of Eobard Thawne. Everything he had done in the past two decades was to get him back home, and he found himself caring about the people he had met along the way. I was captivated by seeing what his concept of love was. He truly believed that everything he had done for Cisco and Barry in the past year had shown that he had grown to love them, and it was amazing how disconnected his logical mind was from his heart. Thank you for the reassurance that Tom Cavanaugh will still be there next season. He's still my favourite thing about this show. Dear Arrow, this is how you do a season finale.Sincerely, everyone who watches both shows.

Great review, Amanda! YES to EVERYTHING about Jonathan Jackson; my gosh, he was absolutely incredible. I rewound all his scenes several times. My guess is Beverly flat-lined. They may not kill her off though, because she'll be a great source of conflict next season. Can you imagine the guilt trip she's gonna run on all of them for her heroic sacrifice and near death? Gunnar and Scarlett - just get together already! Will - about time! Teddy - no one cares, sorry. Layla & Jeff - HOT mess. I don't even know what else to say about them.
