Punaise, c'est de plus en plus dingue cette saison. 0_o

La série avait déjà abordé le terrorisme sous différents angles dans les saisons précédentes. Depuis le début de la saison 5, c'est difficile à l'admettre, mais notre joyeuse petite bande se retrouve dans la peau de terroristes (du point de vue des Observateurs, hein, qu'on soit bien d'accord). Nos personnages s'embarquent dans des assauts, des missions violentes, et même dans la torture physique et psychologique. C'est pas Guantanamo mais on n'en est pas loin.
La frontière entre résistance et terrorisme est très mince, et cette saison le démontre très bien. C'est remarquablement écrit. Le malaise est palpable.

Je suis toujours autant amoureux d'Olivia. En près de 100 épisodes Anna Torv a réussi à faire oublier sa beauté pour créer des personnages touchants et attachants. Elle est remarquable dans cette saison. Quelle actrice. ♡

Le passage de la mouche est un peu téléphoné. Dommage.

Enfin, Peter qui avait déjà montré de quoi il est capable, monte encore d'un cran dans la folie furieuse. Ce personnage est passionnant.

Ça sent vraiment la fin. Je suis bien incapable pour le moment de dire comment tout ça va se terminer. Dans les larmes ? Le sang ? Dans la joie et l'espoir ?
En tout cas je prends un pied d'enfer.
Quelle putain de série. ♡♡♡

Thumbtack is more crazy this season. 0_o

The series had already addressed terrorism from different angles in previous seasons. Since the beginning of season 5, it's hard to admit, but our little merry band is found in the skin of terrorists (in terms of Observers, eh, whether you would agree). Our characters embark on assaults, violent missions, and even in the physical and psychological torture. This is not Guantanamo but it is not far away.
The boundary between resistance and terrorism is very thin, and this season shows very well. This is remarkably writing. The discomfort is palpable.

I'm still so in love with Olivia. In nearly 100 episodes Anna Torv managed to forget its beauty to create touching and endearing characters. It is remarkable in this season. Which actress. ?

The passage of the fly is a bit called. Pity.

Finally, Peter had already shown what he is capable, still up a notch in the madness. This character is exciting.

It smells really the end. I am unable at this time to say how all this will end. In tears? Blood ? In joy and hope?
Anyway I take a walk to hell.
What fucking series. ???

I know there are still eight episodes left in season five, but I'm so mad at the show for pushing Olivia into the background and relegating her to the "mom" and "wife" role. The show and the writers have crafted such an amazing character in Olivia and for them to throw all of that away is such a waste. There's so much more potential for her, but it looks like the writers are hellbent on putting Peter in the forefront and have him be the hero instead of our resident hero since episode one: Olivia Dunham. Of course, this is just my biased opinion.

Did we see Olivia do anything in this episode except silently grieve for Etta and plead with Peter to come home and that she doesn't want to lose him again? Yes, we saw her save Peter's life, but apart from that, she was being the "mom" and the "wife" (not that there's anything wrong with those roles). I wonder how Anna Torv felt while filming this last season and how her role was diminished significantly. Someone needs to ask her about that.

So now Peter is going to be an Observer? Sure. If the plot dictates it, so be it. I get that he's angry about Etta dying and wants revenge, but instead of going down this path, why not work on the relationships that he still has and tend to those relationships with the people who are still here? He can still "avenge" Etta's death by not turning into an Observer.

I think the only bright spot of this season (so far) is Walter's various nicknames for Astrid. In this episode, he called her "Abner." Loved how Astrid figured out the Observer code. Hell, even her is doing a lot more important work than Olivia. I'm not angry at Astrid, I'm angry at the writers for doing Olivia wrong.

Torv was really great in that scene where she's watching the tape of one of Etta's birthdays. She's probably crying over the fact that her role sucks this season. 😛 (Me? Bitter? Nooooo.)

Except for Olivia's dream in last season, this is the first time Peter says "I love you" to her.
