Truly heartbreaking to watch it knowing this happened in America for centuries. They're still almost a century behind the Civil War and they're in the region where the Charlottesville marches took place. It's horrifying to know it was seen as normal and even worse to realize that three centuries later there are still some people who would abide by this were it still the law.
I am so shook.This episode is really a masterpiece. They really built up a momentum and created a lot of possible suspects and made us feel intrigued until the very last scene. That was so satisfying I can't even begin to describe it. The final scene is really memorable. The soundtrack and the resolution of the murder were divinely expressed. The last time I felt this was watching the Six Feet Under finale.
It's so nice to see a recovery taking its proper time. In so many shows the characters gets shot and nearly dies, but suddenly he's running away from hospital and beating perfectly healthy people up. I'm very intrigued to see how the show will develop from such a from-now-on so limited range of possibilities. I'm not sure the show will deliver a Stella under Paul's power scene, but that's certainly been teased.
I can't believe Viola Davis just invented acting. The soundtrack of this episode caught my attention. My guess is it's either Nathan, Wes or Annelise's momma (who could be paying a visit, idk).
I guess they thought we cared about Herman enough to do a three-ways crossover.
That was quite an episode. I felt really surprised by who killed Scotty. Noah's final scene showed a lot about his personality. Definitely the show surprised me.
It's so refreshing to see things from a different perspective. I believe it's even more interesting now that we see the version of a real couple with their real struggles instead of the versions of lovebirds. I paid attention to everything I could knowing how things can change from one's perspective. Helen's a really dark one. Noah's still playing hero on his head, as when he was so worried about his son's stomachache (in Helen's version it wasn't even commented) and when he shows up to the mediation meeting with a nosebleed (in Helen's version he was just fine). A few other things are interesting and differ a bit more than they usually do (as when Helen goes to the police station bringing Noah a good lawyer and when on Helen's version both Noah and the mediator sit in front of her - and the camera shots intend to show how confronted and alone she is in this).
It was definitely one of the show's best episodes so far. MUCH MORE MATURE than season one. Much darker as well. I'm really hoping next week we get to see Allison's Vs. Cole's version! For those thinking you can't really tell a long story about an affair, that was a good slap in the face.
Unfortunately they messed up at the very ending. I know the message it passes, that we won't be able to ever live in perfect harmony and stuff, but please, THE SHOW GOT CANCELLED, just give it a proper and satisfying ending to make it al least not forgetable in 3 years.
This episode is even better than the series 2 finale. It is so well-written, so perfectly acted and so genuinely truthful, I can't express how I feel about it in words. Rae finds a way to represent all of us - at one point - as teenagers. Her mixed up feelings, how a teenager's mind constantly changes and how at that age we see ourselves as mature adults is bravely constructed mostly based on small details. I just fucking love My Mad Fat Diary!
