    • The Boy Must Live

      6.5
      I think they are making too big a deal of "the boy" when the show has built up so many other things and characters over five seasons. Should he be so vital to the show's conclusion? I'm not sure.

      This episode was great for many reasons... First, there was a plan in motion and there was purpose to it. The writers touched on love again. Walter and Peter shared an interesting exchange near the beginning of the episode. A lovely exchange of words. Seeing September with hair was a great sight. Clearly, this is was a great turn for the writers - to have this guy come back and be a part of the destruction of the Observers. It was interesting to hear him discuss things personally without the monotonous tone of the Observer-speak. September details the formation of the Observer race and details how love contributed to the anomaly that is contained within the child - emotion. Then seeing Windmore rage was quite funny "experiencing something I've never experienced before". They need to go to 2167 so that they can prevent scientists from genetically altering the next generations such that they no longer require emotions. And a while cat and mouse chase ensues with tensions high, it was interesting and engaging to watch.moreless

      Took me forever to figure out what the tune was that Donald played for his son. It was "What child is This".
    • September is so handsome!
