It is definitely worrisome. Especially because the remaining parents don't see the degree to which it's happening. Her entire future could be in jeopardy. That's scary stuff.
After an epic, marathon discussion about The Mentalist I just want to jump in to tell you and rationalgal2 how nice it was to see you complimenting each other on your analyses and the challenges you put out there. It's nice to watch an conversation like that progress and you're a great example on how to keep it going and to remain kind and focused. Cheers!
Damn. It was still the second most watched program of the night in terms of viewers -- 6.43 million just below Big Brother's 6.59, which was about a million 5 above Criminal Minds at 10. Just the wrong demo I guess. That said, CBS has a traditionally older demo, don't they?
They are going through monkeys at an alarming rate. If they're testing six at a time, it seems ridiculous that they ever left Nicaragua with a mere 36 of them. Surely Rachel knew the odds were against her vaccine working quickly. There are so many issues with this show, but it's the cheesy moments that keep me around. Yes, the reenlisting scene was cliche, but that's what The Last Ship is. If it took itself too seriously it would probably cost a lot more to produce.
Great analysis of the increasingly bizarre happenings. I thought for sure Sam was a goner, but she's still with us. Maybe they'll surprise us by not going cliche. Really, that might be the biggest shock of all with this one.
Thanks for the kind words. They've done an amazing job transforming Liam in a very short time. The pack (family) Scott is creating is true. Wasn't Parrish's surprise in itself surprising? Just a great episode for all involved.
I like the investigation and the mystery from the human standpoint a lot more than the monsters and the master. Honestly, I could care less about the master. When they noticed that poor dude was crawling with those worms under his skin, I felt so bad for him. So far as the survivors are overcome, they only know something is happening. Even with the desire for blood, it's biological and not like they're otherwise driven for it. In the book, do they end up looking like the master? I would like them to be humanish. Yes, I realize it's not about me. Can't hurt to wish, right?

Thanks for reminding me of the tension of that opening scene. I thought one of the patrol officers was going to shoot one of the SWAT or something. There were so many people walking around in there I had no idea how they managed not to shoot each other! Note to self: Tap SWAT on the back and they think you're one of their guys. Yikes!

I'm not sure if it matters exactly when McGinnis' family was killed or how many years ago at this particular point in the story, but that's for pointing that out.
I agree about Lydia. I was having a hard time with her undeniable chemistry with Parrish, but not so much now that he's a supernatural. Weird that. She's been doing great this season and Kira and Malia are creating a nice trio of female friends. I'd love to see more of the three of them together.
