VM post



I have only one word for tonight:

OMG eleventy!!eleven?!#!: LAMB!!!

::listens to the fic explode around the globe::

(oh yeah, and I saw the promo. ::faints dead away::)



I love my new show with the heat of a thousand fiery suns. My brain is on nano, and I can't think coherently or write coherently, but I am sure others will do so with flair, because this season has got as much meat as last season, but is even more complex and flavorful. This is soo not a show for teenagers.



Random seasonal prediction based on thematics: Lianne Mars will be back, quite possibly very near the end, and pivotal.

Questions the previouslies (not the ep itself) induced:

Why would the mayor want Veronica to go down? What's she got on him that she doesn't know she's got? Is he in league with Casablancas?

Huh? I'm not sure what you mean about the mayor being against V.

And Lamb!OMG. So much love.

God, the Lamb. Yes yes yes, the Lamb. I think we've talked about this before, but he's seriously been growing on me as a character, and tonight cemented it. He's the perfect antagonist.

Now, about the mayor. I will probably have to rewatch the previouslies several times to make it logical, but my brain went gut-jumping at the sequence of previouslies they showed. Something about the order in which they went, even, triggered me to think seriously of the mayor as the potential bus-exploder. It's occurred to me before, but not as strongly as it did tonight. And, if he's the bus-exploder, then the obvious question is why he'd be after Veronica (assuming the exploder wanted her and not someone else). And, actually, I kind of think the mayor has it in for the whole Mars clan. And I really don't know why. I get vibes that say he totally set Keith up for ignominious defeat in the election, that just fuels my tin hat theory there.

Anyway, hopefully that makes at least a mud pattern for you, and when I get a copy to rewatch, I'll think more carefully about it and report back here ;-)

Yeah, in my 2x05-2x06 recap I fingered the Mayor as a possible Big Bad for the season. I was just surprised by the way it sounded like you'd actually found a moustache-twirling scene or something. ;)

Ooh. Hmm. Setting Keith up for defeat. I could see that (except I think the big death knell for Keith's campaign was that DWI that he didn't give, and I'd see Lamb research that himself before I'd see the Mayor-to-be finding it out...

Lamb! Lamb Lamb Lamb!!!

I admit it. While the actor is totally my woobie, I didn't like Lamb. What, I wasn't supposed to! But this? Oh, mamma. Mamma mia, even. That was character development, of the kind we've been getting drips and drabs of turned into a fucking waterfall of ice.

And while I thought the MOTW was kind of weak ... the ending, seeing Meg's little sister in the closet and everything afterward, made it worth it.

Oh noes! That's v. bad. Do you have access to a recording, or do you have a high speed connection? If my torrent finished, I can try to get it to you. It would never go on dial up, but on DSL or cable it'll go just fine.

We have a cable modem...

I actually watched Lost, which I never do! We tape lost and typically watch VM, but it was a crazy night last night. Go-go-go... one of those.

Sigh. The torrent died, and easynews is missing parts on the earlybird version. It may be this evening before I've got one functional, but I'll email as soon as I've got it up there.

Do you have an FTP program, or should I use You Send It?

You don't need to go to all that trouble!!!

I have NO idea! No one's ever sent me anything like this before. How said is THAT?

Hee. We'll go with You Send It, it's point and click. It's not trouble for you, specifically. I want the files for myself, and it's really truly no additional effort to upload it when it finally finishes.

Oops! I typo'd...

SAD vs. SAID

But you still understood my insanity!

This'll be interesting...
