Episode 8, Timebomb – What a Cliffie!
(POSSIBLE SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the episode)
I don’t know about you, but I just about fainted when Luke pressed that button. That was such an insanely thrilling episode, I couldn’t keep my eyes off the screen!
We’ve witnessed several key moments of the season I think.
Maryanne’s influence is spreading and that heart-pie was seriously disturbing. (Gag, anyone?) Sam’s locked up and we’ve seen from the Season 2 Preview that Maryanne’s planning to get to him while he’s imprisoned. Will someone believe poor Andy already?! I seriously love the guy ever since that “epileptic on crack” scene several episodes back.
Aaaaaaand the key moment: Luke pulls a suicide mission on the Dallas vamp nest. Seriously. FAINT. That must have been the most astonishing moment of the entire season, there’s no chance in hell it left anyone cold. My reaction: I screamed and jumped, totally pissed that it’s happening and that I have to wait till next week to see the aftermath. A similar thing happens in the books, but I gotta give it to HBO, they definitely added that OMFG WOW element to the event.
