I think everyone wants Laurel to die out of fear that someday Oliver may fall for her again. I think we need to give Katie Cassidy a break. She's been given really crap stories to work with and it's been done purposefully. Whatever their plan for her, I'm sure she'll nail it.
Series 3 did include Mary's pregnancy, however brief given their short seasons, and most definitely Matthew's death. Are you spure you watched the right season to catch up?
I just figured that Aidan gave it to Kat, and that was the implication Susanna was making.
Aidan has always believed his son died years ago, so Kat wouldn't be his. But if Susanna had more children after Aidan died, that could be it, unless she was a vampire. I guess we'll find out!
I'm not sure where everyone got the idea that the kiss is what provoked this decision in Joel. He has been absent in the marriage for the entire season. Go back and read the previous reviews. Long before Julia befriended Ed she was begging for Joel to talk to her and he was turning his back on her. The kiss was symptomatic of her loss of Joel. Joel made the decision to turn away from his wife long ago.
Imagine Camille, who had dreamt her entire life of being an artist. She wanted to see the world but never left the US. Upon her return she's going to feel very conflicted. She knows her life is finite. Her children are grown. Should she never follow her dreams? She's not asking Zeek to change, only to allow her to, but within the marriage. It seems fair.
Well, Zack is in prison because he went off the rails, and Finn is playing a character on Pretty Little Liars, where he may go off the rails! LOL
I do agree that anyone who believes in God might find it difficult, but in my upbringing (Catholic) I was taught not to even date outside my religion at the time, so there are a lot of old-school people still looming around. Especially with the new Pope, I think people will start to see Catholicism in a new light.
I do like how the show respects both Booth's Catholic faith and Brennan's... I don't know if she's agnostic or atheist... behavior, but they respect each other and try to learn from each other, which is unique for network television when it comes to religion, which tends toward the more "general" views.
I didn't word it properly, as you are reading into it something I did not intend.
Agreed. People seem to want to make the end of their marriage about the kiss. I seem to have been watching a different Parenthood, because their marriage was faltering long, long before the kiss, and Julia only started a friendship with Ed because she felt she had lost her best friend, Joel. And... she had. It's because they changed Joel to create the story that I want to see them carry it through to the end of the marriage. They started down the path, now have he guts to it see through.
My review discussed Crosby and his wife last week when Oliver stayed with them, saying he wanted to marry a woman like her. They weren't featured in the episode tonight. They are happy, and therefore not receiving much attention in the overall scheme of the series at the moment.
