He will be injured, but in the World Series he will be raised from the DL. And the Indians were filled with grief.

The show seems to want us to, but it isn't working. She is absolutely wrong here and just making things worse for everyone in New Seattle.

Except she'll ultimately be a hero because her illegal activities found someome immune and they will magically find another cure.

But even then she is still not the good guy

I am eagerly awaiting Angus to unleash all his acolytes and really gently caress up New Seattle then the city gets nuked

I think Fahrenheit is better for weather

I'm starting to think that Chase may not be as benevolent as we all assumed.
I guess you have to make him look bad so Liv seems slightly more reasonable.

Was I the only one who found Isobel incredibly annoying? She was acting like a snotty brat in almost every single scene, but the general consensus seems to be that she was cute and adorable.

I'll let you know once I catch up on these last two episodes, but her intro episode I already found her kind of annoying so

I mean she was a teenage kid dying of a terminal illness who chose to stay behind in Seattle instead of going home to her family to be a guinea pig for the greater good. She might've been a little impetuous but she wanted to knock out some things on her bucket list and she knew she didn't have long.

Isobel is a lot of fun so far, I'm surprised. I thought she would be way more smarmy and precoious after she was first introduced, but she's written p well imo and the actress is good.

That was a hell of an episode.

Edit: I like Chase Graves villain arc as a guy who's trying to keep everything together through authoritarian means and then snapping under the strain of it all.

I'm really not feeling this season, but it's not for a lack of the show trying. I think it's just a handful of misjudged elements in pacing and tone that are sort of dragging it down for me.

Like, to me, this scenario is borderline apocalyptic. And sometimes it wants to be dramatic about it, and tell the tragic story of refugees stuck at the border crossing. And then it wants to be comical, and have Liv dress up as Peyton. Either approach would be fine, but in the same scene?

Chase's mental instability is tragic and dramatic. Brother Love is darkly comical. The same choir backing them is confusing.

The sad part is that he genuinely didn't intend to kill anyone at the end there. He shoots incompetent (zombie) officers in the chest when they gently caress up badly, it's his MO. But Captain Seattle (understandably) freaked out and tried to kill Chase, compelling Chase to shoot Captain Seattle dead. It's basically the entire New Seattle arc in microcosm.

I know that it was partly a set up for Liv's brain of the week but anyone else think that they're aiming for something bigger with the flu outbreak from this week's episode? It just seemed like a whole lot of humans were sick all at once.

I don't expect people are very keen to get a flu vaccine after last time.

I'm 100% content with them having a season to wrap this up, especially with the way poo poo has been escalating these past two seasons. I don't think they could really keep it going, esp with such a goofy tone, for too much longer.

DAIJOUBU!! ... Daijoubu ?? ?


I know it was meant to be set up for dramatic flair, but it seemed really strange that Isobel just kinda died off camera. I get the impression that her mom was the breaking point and the real catalyst for the sickness, cause she died pretty much immediately after her mom came. Also I get the impression that the Peyton disguise didn't work in the long run, but how did she think it was going to work at all? I mean, she's a pretty high profile person and just coming in and making a scene will draw even more scrutiny.

Anyone know who Peyton's parents were, and if they'd been on Veronica Mars?

Al Sapienza played Papa Charles, and Jill Teed played Peyton's mother. Neither had been on Veronica Mars (probably because they're New York and Vancouver based, respectively).

Who were they reminding you of?

They just looked familiar somehow, and now looking at their IMDB filmographies (which I should have done instead of just posting here) I see they've been in shows I've watched.
