    And the countdown is down to two. On the penultimate episode of Medium, "Labor Pains":

    "When a woman goes missing, her husband begs Allison for help. On the home front, there's concern when Marie becomes severely distraught during a spelling test."

    Scenes from last week's preview show the man basically kidnapping Allison in order to try to get her to help him.

    So it sounds like Marie has a learning disability. And my reaction was... well, duh. Edward_Nigma, isn't that what you've been saying for months now?

    Edit - and now they're saying she doesn't. I guess that would have been too easy.

    I found this episode strangely fantastic, one that had us watching to the very end. This is another show that I will miss.

    I didn't notice, but maybe they were. Their show is ending.

    I liked this episode, though. Very good plotline and it felt like they're really driving to the end. And I liked that they promoted next week's episode as the series finale. No more cat and mouse games.

    If someone kidnaps me and waves a gun in my face I doubt I could be so quick to forgive and be willing to drop charges.

    I guess Marie's issues were just to give Joe the solution to his problem?

    I wish the show wasn't ending so soon. One more episode left, I hope the final episode is epic.

    One of the best episodes of Medium in a while

    Until Allison decided to forgive the person who kidnapped her because she dreamed about his wife and felt sorry for him.

    That is when the episode became bad. It's a shame, other than that, the episode was rather good

    Aside from the glaring faults in the "Marie has a learning disability" storyline, of course.

    Many many many problems with that. Although for the average viewer, nothing wrong was seen, I am guessing.

    Overall, a decent episode. The finale should be interesting

    Hahaha yes agent it's so true...clearly she was mis-diagnosed as being normal. Lol.

    Other than that...for some reason I thought Allison's initial reaction at the airport to seeing Jeremy pull a gun on her was hilarious. And the kidnapping was kinda lame and too short, with no shocking ending.

    But I did not expect Allison to let the guy go!I also agree with mattgus-- this episode was kinda weird, if that makes sense.

    Totally agree with you, Edward. It was indeed weird considering that the final is coming up. The acting wasn't all that great, either. Marie having a learning disability or NOT having one was ridiculous. Next week's episode looks a bit cliched to me as well. This makes me sad. Let's hope they pull a rabbit out of a hat. (By the way, you didn't have to be psychic to know that Jeremy was a loony tune so I don't know why Allison didn't figure it out when the guy said he had been writing to her several times a week for a long time. She should have been a BIT more prepared.
