Is HIMYM Hurting Barney/Robin? Was Revenge's Restraint Unreal? Is Arrow Blind? And More Qs!
We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including How I Met Your Mother, Sons of Anarchy, Once Upon a Time and Scandal!
1 | Could The Good Wife‘s Florrick-Agos please, please, please find a place in their new firm for Carrie Preston’s hilariously shrewd Elsbeth?
2 | Once Upon a Time‘s young Bae was undoubtedly a clever lad, but really — a coconut shell lamp that projects a map? A map written in code, no less?! As for grown Bae, has he had a better moment than stripping off his pea coat and declaring, “I’m not a boy anymore, Felix — and I sure as hell ain’t lost”?
3 | In what universe would new Revenge couple Patrick and Nolan have been able to stop going at each other after one kiss? And didn’t Emily give some really excellent WTF? looks in this week’s episode?
4 | If Homeland‘s Carrie was working with Saul all along, and everything was pretty much going according to plan, then why, in scenes when it was just her, did she act genuinely surprised/agitated/frustrated vs. committed/resigned/determined? And did the revelation that young whatshisname killed his brother almost make you go back and watch the Dana scenes you had just fast-forwarded?
6 | As reliably funny as CBS’ Mom has gotten over the course of the last five weeks, isn’t it time for an episode focusing on Allison Janney’s delectable Bonnie?
7 | Which former Bones guest star did you miss most at Booth and Brennan’s wedding?
8 | Coming out of this week’s Hostages — where Ellen’s husband nearly died, she learned her daughter is pregnant and she had to bury a dear colleague — how can she do anything but ultimately botch the president’s surgery? She’s a twitchy wreck! And can we talk about how lightning-fast the Sanders kids were located at a random bus depot, grabbed and returned home?
9 | How was this week’s Blacklist baddie, Robert Knepper’s “The Courier,” left to sit all alone in a prison van when the FBI had no idea what types of metallic objects were imbedded underneath his skin? Why not just give him a key for his handcuffs and shoot their own transport agents to make it all a little easier? Or do we just have to accept that pretty much everyone on the show, The Following-style, is going to be completely incompetent every week — save for James Spader’s Red?
