Person of Interest
I've calmed down. I watched the episode about two hours ago, a fantastic hour, magical even, in a most terrible way. Everyone should be watching this season of Person of Interest
, I mean it. But... Now that I've had a chance to think about stuff and take in the surprising teaser for next week, suddenly I'm hesitant and worried about the endgame the episode's title promised. With all sincerity, if they kill off Carter I don't think I can keep watching this show on a weekly basis, if at all. Ever since the Pilot she was the character that hooked me, not Finch or Reese, it was Carter. She's the one I care about. I don't want Fusco to die either, and certainly the promos are doing their best to point the finger at him as the team member we'll be losing (and I will cry, kick and scream if that happens). But Carter is a deal-breaker for me. I wouldn't be mad at the show in a spiteful way, but a Carter-sized crater would make it difficult to go on. I was so excited an hour ago, now I'm pretty depressed. Heh. I hope I'm wrong, I hope Carter lives, but it's not looking good. Reese caressing Carter's face in the promo was a WTH moment for me and now I'm afraid it'll be one of those 'could have been' moments that will forever haunt an already haunted man. I HOPE NOT. I hope not. :( BTW, this episode was the first time I ever found Reese attractive. Ha! He was looking good.Sons of Anarchy

Jax has some nerve. The man deserves to be alone forever. He had no problems lulling Tara into a false sense of security, telling her they were going to go away, admitting to her that the life was empty and dangerous, that he would take her and the boys and leave (he was going to leave Opie behind!! His best friend and brother!). Her doing the same thing? High treason. Gemma has become a waste of space, I'm sorry to say. If she wants to keep rolling around in the Club's garbage, fine. Who the heck cares? She's a grown woman with non existent self-esteem or confidence. She's a hanger on. But to sabotage a mother's attempt to give her baby sons, her granchildren
, a chance at a future is absolutely despicable. She has become despicable. Jax is even worse. How many times has he cheated on Tara with prostitutes? He was all about Tara when she was his fantasy and dream girl. The second she gets a clue she's a traitor. ( ...Collapse )Homeland
Do not retire him, do not take Quinn away! *** I loved the twist that Carrie and Saul were working together all along. Many fans were upset by it, but I enjoyed the initial distortion of reality. Now, the notion being pushed by Javadi that Saul uses people is very effective. Carrie willingly abuses her body and mind for the "greater good" (there's no doubt that she believes in what the CIA does), but the way Javadi tells it, Saul is the one using/abusing her disposition and faith in their mission. Now, whether Javadi is entirely right or partly right, Carrie herself questioned being left in the institution longer than she could stand, and whenever Quinn brought up the fact that Carrie was in real danger Saul's responses were fairly dismissive. I'm not sure the show is telling us that Saul becoming Director (for ten more days!) made him overzealous and caused him to revert to old pattern (if Javadi is to be trusted), or if we're meant to understand he was always a pragmatist. Whatever the case may be, there is a new dimension to Saul and his relationship with Carrie that calls into question the very nature of their partnership and injects a sense of mistrust and uncertainty to their dealings. Sometimes it appears as though Quinn is Carrie's only ally at the moment, except she barely notices him. He protects her and she does her best to ignore the side of him that isn't a robotic and mysterious CIA agent. He looks fragile. Will Quinn turn out to be another illusion, some organization's plant? Perhaps Quinn's a half-truth like Brody, who continues haunting Carrie's every thought. Is Carrie truly and utterly alone? Does it matter? I'm still intrigued by Homeland

I still love Rick and I don't have an opinion regarding Carol. I don't think I would have banished her, but the decision is made and it wasn't a plainly wrong one so I'll go with it. Some debate whether Carol was right to kill David and Karen, which I believe to be irrelevant. The reason I can't hate on Rick for banishing her is because she didn't consult with anyone before acting. She made a rash decision (could have been the right thing to do), and executed the plan. She didn't even have the guts to confess when Tyreese was trashing Rick and Daryl all over the yard (because let's face it, Daryl and Rick are strong and all, but Tyreese could have taken them both). Her actions were questionable enough to warrant some penalty IMO. Had she gotten away with it who knows what else she would have done. That said, I cannot wait to see Daryl's reaction and Rick's response to his blow out. The show has been missing that kind of entirely human, emotional confrontation ever since Shane was killed. And I hope Carol returns soon. *** Hershel! Wow! Held it DOWN. I feared for his life but I'm happy he's fine after kicking so much butt. Rick and Carl's bonding time came off as vaguely implausible due to the ridiculous number of zombies coming at them, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Very cool, frightening visuals, and satisfying as well. I was so anxious during the entire thing thinking Glenn was a goner. Phew! Tense moments were lived.
