Such a great episode, even though it seemed very short. I was certainly excited to see The windmill again. For some reason, seeing that just made me really happy and for reasons I cannot explain, the episode was made good just because of that sight. Oh, and seeing Wash freaking out like a little girl was pretty entertaining too. He actually sounded a bit like Grif in that brief moment.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to hang out tonight and speculate and chat about what all we saw. I'm heading out for my birthday (it's technically tomorrow, but celebration pt. 1 [i.e with my father] is tonight). So, I'll catch up with ya'll probably on Wednesday.
Though it brings me up to my point of nit picky-- how did they NOT all travel together to get Church out? How was it their first road trip together? Did she travel alone?
Favorite moments: The Counselor's look of 'err....sure' Simmons and Grif having a moment awwww Grif and Carolina having a moment awwwww Staff of Charon? I'm convinced the RT guys watched Andromeda at this point 'cause their naming scheme is very familiar to the High Guard naming scheme (I am OUT if there is a Balance of Judgement. Just saying)
Any guesses which way Carolina meant 'CT is gone'? Maybe that's why Wash is so surprised in Sand Hell? CT was 'gone' for so long by that point.
I loved it when the Director started to say Son of a bitch. Nice to know Church inherited that idiom. Also I'm glad Tucker's carrying Church, nice to see him have something important to do after the last couple of seasons!
This has all just cemented in my mind: In an odd way, Wash really belongs with the Reds and Blues more than he did in Freelancer. He was really sort of the odd man out in his 'group', kind of their Caboose in a way. And Awww the Reds and Blues have grown on him! That pleases me for some reason :D
She could come back, but she doesn't necessarily have to still be part of the team. Maybe now she'll be working against them more actively, but its not disclosed to the others? I mean, how is she going to explain surviving the bomb?
It makes a lot of sense when you look at his arc as a character. Remember that more or less everyone else Wash ever knew betrayed him. Now he betrayed someone who subsequently forgave him, and further offered him refuge and friendship with open arms instead of casting him aside. That was probably the biggest sign that he would fit in better with them than he would with other members of PF
Exactly. So either something doesn't happen and he thinks CT is gone as of this episode/point in time or something else happens to convince him that she can't be there. I'm leaning towards the former however.
Happy to see some Grimmons love, as well as some Grifalina tension. XD
And once again, Wash gets to be made to feel like nothing he ever does will amount to anything. I wonder if we'll see an internal battle. (Wanting to prove that he's worth something to the "mother" of his old team, or deciding to turn his back on trying to be what he obviously isn't.). He never was meant for the life of a Freelancer. But he wants so badly to prove himself.
And why in the name of all the gods would Church decide to hitchhike with Tucker. It doesn't take a genius to know what he's got in there. I'm mean, really.
