November 16, 2006: Double Take Season 7, Episode 8

Okay, so I'm going to need your help with this one. "But Dave, why would you need my help writing your blog" you ask? Why? Because I didn't get it. It's as simple as that. I could lie and write something up that I think gives the impression that I knew what I was talking about and then all of you guys would see right through that. So instead, I tell the truth. I didn't understand this episode at all. Well, I did get the last 5 minutes. This reporter feels he'd be exposed by his boss for fake journalism so he kills her only to see "her" later and kills "her" again (in reality it's her twin). I also got the commericals. Nothing hard to understand about them. But take that scene and the ads out and I was lost for the rest of the hour. Here's what I do know: 1. The only person who really knew both twins existed was their mother who gave them up for adoption when she got put away. The twins didn't even know the other half existed. 2. Dr. Robbins had a twin that died while still in the womb. His mother thinks he became a coroner because he spent "so many days next to a dead body." 3. In order for lab tech Mandy to give out important info to Nick, he must loudly sing Barry Manilow. 4. Greg's favorite part of any bedroom search is "the naughty drawer." 5. I couldn't tell if the side shot of the desk was trying to indicate it was tampered with, but if that wasn't the case then that was the worst desk lock I've ever seen. That's all I got. The rest of the story line for the double murder was an absolute vague mess to me. Was I just having one of those days or do you also think the same thing? If you understood the whole episode feel free to school me on it. Until next week, friends. show less
