"His Visit: Day Nine" Season 1, Episode 10

Well, there goes the first season. And just when I thought that John was Jesus, the writers went ahead and threw in a bunch of hints to make me think he might actually be an alien. "You're all going to be toast," he told Linc. "We're coming 9/11/14." Could it just be a coincidence that their arrival is scheduled take place on the anniversary of the attacks on America? Then again, could those numbers actually represent the bible passage 9:11-14 that describes salvation through the Lord? There are just so many ways this could go! I'm interested in finding out more about this Cincinnati place that John took Shaunie to, and why Shaunie couldn't recall much of his visit other than the fact that they, whoever they are, want to sponsor him. And even if they are aliens or simply the all-powerful celestial beings that occupy heaven, what exactly do they find so useful about the Yost family? If their true goal is to redeem mankind, then perhaps these alien gods are of the mind-set that the Yost family would serve as the best example to the rest of the world of just how redeeming they can be. But there is still that whole "you're all going to be toast" thing to consider. What exactly did Dwayne and Jerri see on the live streaming video on Butchie's website? Their reactions caused me to believe that there was more than met the eye. Did they hear John's father's voice? I wonder if he sounds like Barry White. I thought it was great how Freddie is this big, tough drug-runner, but he had to send Palaka over with an opening line to disguise his ulterior motive of finding out what Barry and Ramon would be wearing to the parade. Palaka's the perfect lackey for the job, too. To paraphrase: "Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Look at the bears. That's right. You wearin' that to the parade?" The scene at the car lot was interesting. What did it mean when the salesman told John, or "Country," as he referred to him, that he was taking him offline? Could he be part of John's people? His speech was almost as murky as John's, and he even referred to the Cissy and Butchie incident, which I didn't think was common knowledge. What was that ending about when Dr. Smith showed up 20 years younger from Cincinnati and Cissy apparently got pregnant? I bet Stephen Hawking would know, but I have about as much an idea of what is going on as Bill Jacks does of social relations. I did enjoy seeing Kai tear it up on her board, though. The girl's got some skills! Anyway, that concludes the first season of the show, and also my blog. Thanks for reading, everybody! I hope you enjoyed my weekly musings.
