Deducting one-half a Fedora for no Red quips, amusing adventure/romantic escapade stories or quirky associates. Any of those would have shot it up a bit.

Dembe looked menacing, which I enjoy, so I will let it slide that he had nothing to say.

The man playing Tom Connolly is amazing. He is doing such slimeball stuff while seeming like your best friend.

This looks so cool.

Not a great episode for me. The Tom-related story-line seems forced. 2 Fedoras.

Haven't watched the episode yet. Not sure I want to. Minimal Red screen time? Too much Tom? More Tom & Liz Twisted Love Story? That's at least a -2.5 Fedora deduction right there.

BTW: My Comment #2 related to the layout and graphics of this new "Fedora Awards " page, and not the episode.

I was on the fence a little on the subject matter going in. But as others (Richard) have noted on the discussion page, it turned out to be handled realistically enough. I didn't care for all of the exposed brains. Maybe there is a zombie audience out there they were catering to.

I didn't think Red's time was as minimal as some in the early part of S2, where he showed up for a few minutes to describe the Blacklistter and then reappeared at the end for the wind up.

The story is there that Tom loves Liz, but it remains to be seen what that means. Again, as others have mentioned on the discussion page, (myself, C Fergy, Mary) we don't know his actual motives yet.

2.5 Fedoras. Lucky it got that.
