Evening! Can I just say out the outset how much I am still enjoying Miles' founding father status? I cannot wait for more details. Will we get them tonight?
Miles' reputation must be really intimidating to cause a stranger to answer all his questions with very little coercion. Wonder what it is. I'm not quite as impatient as Charlie though. I'd prefer to let the details trickle in as we observe his interactions with others. Also, Miles' ability to put her in her place brings me joy. Too much? I'm trying to like her, really I am.
Why don't I know Lady Doc's name? Will someone please clue me in? I mean, it's a good nickname and all, but still. Oh, it's Maggie. Yay. Carry on, then. Aw, Charlie let Maggie hug her. Point for Charlie :)
Um, rabid dogs? Maybe we shouldn't have thrown away that torch.
It's mom again! What's she working on? Why is she so nice to Monroe? And since she hasn't cooperated, why hasn't Monroe tortured or killed her yet? Oh, here it is. *wince*
Who is watching the gang, and how come no one's aware of it? There are at least three people in the crowd who should be, but we are all distracted with lesser problems. Also, turns out I don't mind it when Nora gives Miles what for. I don't mind at all. Miles plans to leave? Subtract ten points from his awesome register. (Especially because this is really . . . weird timing. Didn't we just make contact with Nora so that we could rescue Danny?)
Flashback: Why don't I feel like mom was actually going on a supply trip? Did Ben know what she was up to?
Ooh, scary compound with scary man. Cool visual.
Although that storm visual is even better. Bad weather really is upon us.
How did "Nate" get free? And why is Charlie defending him? It's not like Miles was killing him, and she knows what "Nate" plans to do. What does she see in him that I just don't? Anybody else wanna weigh in, please?
On behalf of teenagers everywhere, can we introduce a character that isn't rash, spiteful, and omniscient? I get that Danny and Charlie have been through a lot, but some character variety in that age range would be awfully nice. It would provide a contrast and believability for the two already on canvas.
Did Danny really get free? *sigh* I didn't think so.
While Maggie's speech about letting go is poignant (and the cue-giving music with it), I need it to not work on Miles. That would be just a little too easy.
Maggie, NO!! This feels pointless. What's the purpose of this attack dog thread? Why are we losing Lady Doc?
I'm not sure that I've said it before, but I will now: Captain Neville is a great character. His motivations for playing a "villain" are compelling. He's three dimensional, and I respect that about him even though I hate him.
Charlie's decision to stay with Maggie (still grumbling) gives her a few more points. Maybe she and I are going to turn a corner here?
Wait, did the tornado stop right in front of the barn Neville, Danny, and the army were holed up in? Really?
Maggie's been carrying around the book she was reading to her boys. . . . *sob* Why does she have to die? Why?
Oh. Charlie's "Everybody leaves me," it got to me. Stupid emotional manipulation.
Hey, it's mom again. Why does she look okay? What have we been doing to her? I'm beginning to worry about her state of mind. Have they been ripping out her molars? Why isn't her face swollen? Wait, she came willingly? AT MILES' REQUEST? Why? What would she be good for?
And, where is Grace? We are going to find out, right?
Okay, guys, it's your turn now. What did you think of episode four? (Is it just me, or did this episode seem a little more predictable than the last? I love nonetheless, just wondering.)
