Three things:
1. Olivia's heartbreak and anger are devastating, real, and necessary, and I'm glad her feelings were allowed to remain for a long while, and transform naturally, as she came to terms with what was done to her and what was done to Peter.  It always breaks my heart that the first thing she asks is if he seemed happier, because that is Olivia's conflict: that she thinks herself damaged, emotionally incompetent. It's a fear that has been there since the pilot. 
2. Kudos to Peter Bishop, for doing the right thing instead of the easy one and telling her the truth before she found out on her own, and for not pushing. 
3. This is the perfect halloween episode, emotional trauma aside. It's just creepy all around. 
4. Well, okay, four things. Thank God for Astrid Farnsworth, who does not hesitate to call bullshit bullshit and point out that it is not fine. That it's okay to want to scream. 
This community recommends that you watch this episode with a box of tissues handy, a pet to hug, or a pillow to throw at your tv. 

Writer: Alison Schapker, Monica Owusu-Breen
Director: Joe Chappelle
Originally aired: 9 December 2010
The science team investigates a series of cases where victims have had vital organs extracted. Peter and Olivia begin to deal with the lingering feelings they have harboured during the recent duress they have suffered.
Most Memorable Quote:
PETER: Olivia? Are you okay? What is it?
OLIVIA: You know what Barrett said? He said that he looked into her eyes, and he knew that it wasn't her.
PETER: Olivia...
OLIVIA: (about Bolivia) I understand the facts. I know that she had reams of information about me and about my life and about the people that were close to me. And I understand that if she slipped up that she would have a completely reasonable explanation for it. And I guess to expect you to have seen past that is perhaps asking a little bit too much. But when I was over there, I thought about you. And you were just a figment of my imagination. But I held onto you, and it wasn't reasonable, and it wasn't logical, but I did it, so... why didn't you? She wasn't me. How could you not see that? Now she's everywhere. She's in my house, my job, my bed, and I don't want to wear my clothes anymore, and I don't want to live in my apartment, and I don't want to be with you. She's taken everything.
PETER: (softly. as Olivia plods away) I'm sorry.
Also, oh, Walter:
WALTER: You haven't told, Olivia, have you?
PETER: Nope, actually, I did.
WALTER: How did she react?
PETER: Surprisingly well.
WALTER: Really?
WALTER: Do you think possibly they replaced her with a robot?
(Olivia melts down in front of her washing machine after trashing her closet and her linens, upset at the personal invasion she endured)


I know there's a ton, but the AO3 tag only shows a few. I don't read it often.

Goodness, I'm being forcibly reminded of why northern Michigan Halloween was such a yearly torment for me as a child - it's freezing! Literally - a gale wind, and sleet.

I always wanted to be a fairy or whatever, but mama quite rightly insisted that costumes had to be designed around potential to incorporate snowsuits.

There's some woman in Brazil called Ana Maria José who clearly has an email address which is just a letter or two off from my fannish email address. She frequently typos it and/or gives it out incorrectly to people all the time—I've been signed up for all sorts of Portuguese language websites, Facebook, and real estate listings—but now she must be using it for work because in the past few days I've had someone (I think) apply for a job and send me a pdf containing his scanned passport and a whole tonne of other personal information about him (!) and just this morning I received a spreadsheet containing the payroll details of about forty different people. Uh. I've written back to all of these people in both English and French, with a no doubt torturously wrong Portuguese translation via Google Translate, telling them that they've got the wrong address and that this Ana Maria José needs to correct the contact info she's giving people.

And yet the emails keep coming.

I'm still feeling tired and sore today, so I made the executive decision to go across the street to the cupcake place, and get a mixed berry cupcake and some Earl Grey. It was an excellent decision, do not regret.

You guys, the passport including visa arrived in the mail today, so I re-booked my flight to SFO for Sunday!

I will continue to sort out for my father and my mother as many things as I can manage in the time allotted -- the essentials are already taken care of -- but by Jove, I am so glad I can return to the New World: my new world.

I tend to forget that Arrow is no longer eligbile for Yuletide. It was eligible a year ago! Oh, how a fandom grows in a short amount of time. I do think the ranking of its categories is interesting. At this moment, it's ranked: F/M (2771), Gen (869), F/F (306), M/M (283), Multi (145), and Other (24). I'm not surprised het is winning by a huge margin because of Oliver/Felicity, but I'm pleasantly surprised that both and femslash are beating out slash and by a good margin. Oliver/Slade is just a few fics ahead of Oliver/Diggle. Right now 61 to 57.

Has Wonder Woman ever had her own live action movie before? I was watching an interview about the history of Wonder Woman and I started thinking about Chun Li from Street Fighter. She's been in numerous Street Fighter games as well as part of the cast for the other Street Fighter tie-ins. Heck, no matter what you think of it, Chun Li did have her own movie! (And so did Catwoman). I hear Wonder Woman will be getting one, but I'll believe it when I see it. I mean, she was supposed to be getting another live action TV series but that didn't end up happening.

1. AoS

So let's face it, I'm totally in love with Agents of SHIELD spoiler )

2. Sleepy Hollow

I still adore Abbie and Ichabod, but I wish the writers focused more on the things that made Season One so great: the Mills Sisters; this show's man-out-of-time; the sense of place we got for Sleepy Hollow.

Then again -- shallowness alert -- everybody in the young generation remains amazingly attractive. A+ casting. (Didn't hurt that other night Lyndie Greenwood favorited my fawning Jenny Mills tweet. Aw, yeah.)

3. The Good Wife

My favorite show, even though the last two episodes weren't favorites. To be this strong and sharp, this funny and dark, this innovative in the sixth season? Kudos to the Kings. Nomen set omen.

If only they give casting spoiler only ).

I'll take Originality in Subject Lines for 100, Alex.

Let's do the Real Life update first, shall we? We shall. Cut to spare the innocent, and the rest as well. )
