    8.6
    great episode, we found out that the detective was the step-son of the man craig killed. totally did not see that coming. we learn that aaron is make money.. MONEY. and that he's not dead.... we learn more about wills past and what he will do to craig's family... and opens up anticipation for next episode!!!!
  • Each episode seems to fill gaps and give you one more character that you know isn't dead. Two more episodes and we'll have the answer. Of course that will have to wait until after the World Series.moreless

    It was a fun watch. The only thing that annoyed me is I thought that when they look back with the cop they are telling him what happened so why is he blaming the priest for what happened, when in the first episode when the girl is looking back and telling the story of how everything began? If she didn't tell him what was in her look back how are we supposed to know what they are telling him and are not telling him?



    I do love this show, though, so this is a forgivable error.moreless

  • The show finally gets better; the episode wasn't that much contrived.

    YES! The show finally gets better and receives its highest grade from me yet. I'm a bit relieved, actually. The episode wasn't that much contrived. When it is good, the story does flow nicely.



    Let's start with the BAD - Matthew St. Patrick. I thought he's supposed the veteran of the main cast, but hella bad actor. When he was interrogating Father Malloy, he acted like a guy trying to be a cop. No sense of conviction or authority. Maybe the cheesy dialogue didn't help. There's a scene where he reveals his step father to be the man killed by the drunk driving Craig. But it took him so long to get to it that it lost its punch. And they shouldn't EVER mention that the present-day murder has something to do with what happened 20 years before! We accept the concept that we get a glimpse every year, but it sounds ridiculous that a detective would actually piece his investigation by year. I guess he's being extensive or more likely, procrastinating. It would have been more believable if he started on present-day and worked his way back to 1986.



    Good stories: Will's "only" crime and surprisingly, Jenna's relationship with her trying-to-be-better mother. It's also great that Sam finally found her baby and that Craig is so freaking nice now! Carla, meanwhile, becomes a nanny to Sam's baby and barely-seen Aaron is in Seattle, thinking of his company.



    Will Estes (Will) has the most sympathetic character so far, though his acting is limited (the priest get-up is not fooling me). Only Cheryl Leigh has pulled off the convincing transformation. I cringe at the thought of these characters growing old and uglier.



    And here's what I'm thinking what happened with the murder. The victim shot himself/herself. And the rest are just protecting him/her. If the murderer is still alive, then I'm guessing the rest are protecting him/her. Whoever is guilty -- I'm rooting for them to go scott free... because I hate the detective.

  • I really love this series!

    9.0
    This was another great episode for this series. I never have been much of a fan of the soap opera but I love the concept of following these characters for 20 years and watching how twisted their lives can become and how the secrets and lies start to pile up. It's only been 3 years and I just recently tried to explain to a coworker all the twists and turns of the show and they were very confused but impressed as to what a complex storyit was. Also the show is giving out the clues to who may have died and the secrets slowly but in a perfect way to keep you on the edge of your seat wanting more. I was floored with this episode that Detective Marjorino's father was the one that was killing in the car accident in the first episode. I hope this show maintains this till the end because I am loving it!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (2)

  • NOTES (7)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Black Monday: Russell Brewster mentions that people are hesistant about the market since the crash. The crash he is referring to is the stock market crash that occurred on October 19, 1987. On that day, the stock market had it's biggest percentage decline in it's history at 22.6%. Since then, the day has been referred to as Black Monday.

    • The Fugitive: When Will says the victim was probably killed by a surprised intruder, not himself, Detective Marjorino refers to this hypothetical murderer as "the One-Armed Man," in reference to the movie and television series The Fugitive, where the main character was wrongfully accused of a murder committed by a man with one arm.

    • Seattle's Coffee & Music: Aaron mentions that the music and coffee in Seattle is great. This a reference to the "grunge music" scene that was started with bands like Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and Soundgarden, as well as Starbucks coffee both of which were born in Seattle and really took off in the late '80s.
