I've got to calculate my rating after factoring in the AFP (Anticipatory Fedora Points). I'll have my final score by tomorrow. I just wish Vanessa hadn't planned on killing her girlfriend as part of the last frame up plot, even though she wound up not killing her.

Harry said...

Gave it 4.50. Vanessa was a great Blacklister. Tom subplot cost the episode 1/2 Fedora.

4 Fedoras.

The Tom plot still feels forced and disengenuine. I would be fine with him taking a dive until the series finale.

Harry said...

Brainstormer: I'd be fine with Tom taking a dive into a Stewmaker acid bath.

Tabasko said...

4.5. Cool concept. Still no quips? The speech Liz gave Tom about faking the relationship, I don't know about that.

It was an exciting, well paced episode. Great to see even a few moments of Susan B.

Ressler action added fp's. One Red quip or Dembe utterance would have gone the full 5.

Harry said...

Tabasko: Red quips have been sparse lately.

Tabasko said...

#6 Harry: Way too sparse for me.

To clarify #5, I'm sure Liz would want to believe Tom wasn't faking everything, but to me he surely could be.

What if they had gone ahead adopted that child? That in itself would have been a horrendous idea for someone who knew at the end of that day, he was doing a job that would end.

The wholw baby adoption thing was completely unnecessary and just weakened/confused the sorry.

I typed the above without my glasses on, can you tell?

I wish the voters of 2.5 to 3.5 (out of 5) would also share what they especially didn't like in this episode and what they felt caused the lower scores.

I'm genuinely interested and not for the sake of any argument. I was once told I was peace-able. Yeah, make fun! lol

Tabasko said...

I am, too, Charmed.

Just to see what people on the other end of the spectrum from me think. Maybe they like or don't like something I haven't considered.

Thanks Tabasko. We want everyone to feel welcome to state their viewpoints. I'm always up for reading other's opinions.
