Wow. What a great episode. It's so utterly frustrating having everyone apart right now when they would all be working so much better together. First off, Cameron and Donna still don't get each other. Thank god for John, even though his best advice goes unheeded. Did they miss his stint in prison? He took the time to learn from it and is quite wise. I loved that Joe used his leverage as a chance to make Mutiny better. Honestly, the love of commodore 64s is so short sighted (and hindsight is 20/20), and he's wanted a broad user interface for so long (something else that proves to be fruitful), so as much as I wanted to smack him for playing hardball, he's been wishing for a chance to push his agenda for a long time, too. The best part is that the lie led to him realizing how friggin smart they really are. Kinda brilliant. I'd be remiss if I left it unsaid how incredibly hot it was when Joe called Sarah after recognizing she had been in the apartment. I've never been particularly fond of Lee Pace, but I can definitely see what all the fuss was about now. Finally, I'm surprised how little I care about Gordon's story at the moment. I should care. I don't. Something's gotta give with his involvement to get him closer to the action.

I think my personal problem with the concept of God comes from organized religion, which seems to cause a lot more problems than it solves. There was a science fiction book I read called Caclucating God that made such a great argument for a greater power it was hard to refute. Kind of like the movie Cintact and the simple concept of us alone in the universe being a waste of space. My research did help, but I still have a hard time letting go of the preordained concepts of religion and spirituality, so my real issue may not be as big as I think! I really hope Proof pushes the envelope, too. I like where it's gone so far. I don't think I'll be able to review it next week because I fly out of town at an indecent hour on Tuesday morning, but I'll be back the next week. I love this show!

The whole alien agenda thing is soooo confusing. When Barbie told Julia his feelings for Eva were more real than hers given the immediacy of them, I was just embarrassed. Um...they weren't real. Doesn't anybody get that? They were manufactured in a friggin cocoon. I can't even.

I don't feel the need to put labels on feelings like that. Extraordinary circumstances lead to extraordinary events. They found each other and it took another lifetime to reconcile those feelings. We don't know anything else about them.

Now that you mention it, I have done some reading on the subject when I was going through a particularly difficult patch. Not by that fellow, that I'm aware, but the idea that we all know each other and carry on, helping each other grow, even going to far as to choose to the paths of our souls in order to help those we love grow (like a soul that would choose to go into a baby that would die during childbirth, for instance) stood out to me at the time. The soul would want to be a part of that experience for what it might help those it loves achieve. It really helped me through some dark times. And yet, I can't bring myself to believe in God. It's why I identify so deeply with Cat's struggle.

I didn't get the impression they were necessarily "gay partners," but that through the intensity of war they developed strong feelings for one another. Having never been shot at and watched my friends die on a daily basis, I can't say what it would do to me, but I'm guessing it would push my boundaries quite a bit.

Except the preview shows his boss showing up at the scene talking about his guy getting shot. Unless it's one long dream sequence, that doesn't make sense. Additionally, no scenes of Ray in the preview. Recuperating? Mince meat? http://www.tvfanatic.com/video...

Why do you feel that way?

Curiously, what's different in what you read on The Wrap than what we have above? "More to come..."?

Oh. You know, when they were talking about that, for some reason, I imagined it being something a long time ago, as in another lifetime, and it took Anne this long to come into her own. Why? I don't know. Thinking back to the Hale's marriage, it certainly wasn't loving. I suppose it could have happened. I can't remember how far back they said they thought through the addition of Marburg.
