@Amy Lynn--I think Blaine will find out the truth and help Sue get her job back, too, but it was the previews for next week that left me uneasy. If he just put it together and went to Figgins and said "hey, here's what I think..." or went to Sue first, it would be different. I just don't know if I like where it's going to go in his quest to get an answer.
I, too, do not understand NOT saving her for one more week when they had the save to use and now no longer have it.
@Dr. Phage--YES! I was coming here to defend my position, but you've done it for me with exactly the same words I would've used. This season has gotten...anvilicious. Week after week after week it's as if we're thought to be idiots who can't figure things out through subtlety. Bones used to be a show written with subtlety. Not anymore. It's sad to see what it was and what it has become.
As for my lack of understanding of domestic violence and abused children, don't assume, please. You don't know me. I understand that some children/adults in this situation may react as he did at first (overjoyed, happy to be reunited) but it doesn't fit with THIS character. The one we've been following for 8 years now. Just because one person would react that way doesn't mean everyone will.
A couple of things: I didn't mention the end with Ryder being stood up in the hallway because I don't think the Catfish story is over. I'm sure we'll get some sort of resolution, but probably not until next week.
I don't think Becky ever intended to hurt anyone either, herself included. She was scared of the future and knew that people used guns for protection and that was all. So to me, it wasn't insensitive. It was real. As to the three shots, I thought I heard three but after watching back assumed the third had been a door slamming.
I think the difference is that Amber's talent doesn't match Candice's talent. And the fact that they keep referring to Amber in terms of her legs and beauty is off-putting to me. It promotes the idea that her beauty, and yes, she's a beautiful girl, is keeping her there and not her talent. Even in interviews with the other contestants, their commentary about Amber is that she takes selfies with her camera phone and Burnell thinks she's beautiful.
It's not enough to talk about the "radical lifestyle change" for Amber because it's a radical lifestyle change for ALL of them, you know? I feel like when we DO get snippets of Amber in interviews, she doesn't interview well, and that's hurting her in the votes.
David: Sorry! Sorry! I had the bean burrito for lunch.
@Nick--Thanks for pointing out the song title was wrong. I'll go in and fix that. As for pandering to her audience, I think she's playing the game. She knows what she thinks she wants to do and what it takes to look the part and attract that audience. I do not at all see her doing edgy rock because she seems far too Pollyanna, but she also looks incredibly bored during the cheesy pop/rock numbers she's done, so maybe this *is* where her heart is. As for Janelle, we'll have to agree to disagree. She had runs where no runs were needed and overall just tried to do too much. Kree picked a great song for her voice.
@gio--I'm very much a fan of Revenge and can't really see where in this review I may have given the impression that I didn't like last night's episode. What would you have me do differently to show that?
@Lauren--Thanks. I'm not afraid to say that right now, in their current states, I do not want Fitz and Olivia together. It's such an unhealthy relationship, adultery aside. I want them together eventually, but not right now.
@Rainbow--I'm not a hater. The heat between them is insane. But I'm allowed to think that perhaps now is not the best time for them to be together and want her to punch him in the face for calling her a whore on more than one occasion.
