While I'm clearly excited to know how everything goes down next week, this is also when I'm sad to realize that everything's about to end, and we'll have another summer to wait through to see what happens next.
(S02E20) This episode was kind of different. I don't think they've had a case before where Don had a personal/romantic connection to those involved. I'll say this though. I didn't like how they kept pushing the idea that working in any kind of law enforcement (police, FBI, ATF, etc.) is so stressful that suicide is an option for many. I realize a job like that can have it's pressures, but I was surprised that this show took that angle. The unfortunate thing is that there's probably some truth to it so I suppose I'm just eating my own words right there.
Beyond that gripe, this was a very good episode as usual. There really is no reason why this show couldn't pull it's weight on a night other than Friday. It's better than The Unit and would make a nice pairing with NCIS. But I digress. A former love interest of Don's (she was an ATF agent) commits suicide. But after some crazy mathematical analysis from Charlie, it seems like it may have been a murder.
So let's quickly go through what we know from this episode...
This episode was filled with all sorts of dream hints and clues from Veronica's point of view, though their interpretation shouldn't be anything more than what Veronica herself has figured out on her own; these aren't ghosts she's talking to.
Also, while it was great to see Mac again (they really need to put her in more episodes), Wallace and Weevil were sadly missing.
Now the question is: did Sharon/Boomer/#8 purposely direct that ship to the planet somehow?
Here we had a completely Starbuck-centric episode, one that showed us her continued feelings toward Enders and hightlighting her reasons for being enthused to head back to Caprica to take back their planet. As an episode that stood to spread out the primary plot of the season, I think it worked well.
The question I had at the end of the last episode was why would Wallace feel at all threatened by a newspaper reporter? Then, in this episode, we see that Wallace tells his story to the press, only to have it blow up in his face. OK, two things: 1) Wallace should have told the reporter where to stick it, and 2) Why the hell would Wallace tell a reporter before he told police?
