"His Visit: Day Three" Season 1, Episode 4

Apparently Mitch had one that changed shape, too... for Cass. Oh yeah, I said it! Linc put her up to bedding Mitch so he would have to move out of his house. Is that so he could move in on Cissy or just because then he wouldn't have to worry about Mitch standing in his way again? We shall see, I guess. The previews that aired after last week's episode led me to believe that there would be a little more interaction between Cissy and Linc (for example, her telling him she needed him), but no such luck. I guess we'll have to wait to see that in a future episode. He did clean her house, though. That Dylan McKay turned into such a nice guy! Oh yeah, so John got stabbed by a gang member. I guess that deserves mentioning. First off, it amazes me how tough repetition can make a person seem. I have to give credit to the writers, not only for moving this series along at a pretty steady pace, but also for not turning John into the black hole he so easily could have become. With that said, I also admire the actors for their convincing performances. I take back what I said about repetition making a person seem tough. There needs to be a little attitude, too. Austin Nichols had just the right amount in his portrayal of John. He scared the driver but didn't shed character. Not even when he was getting stabbed in the chest repeatedly. That boy is one tough cholo! Vietnam Joe just happened to be driving along and stumbled across John lying in the woods after he was left for dead by the van full of rabid street toughs. Yeah right. As if anything on this show just happens. Once Joey got John in the van, John put Joe's hand on his chest and told him that he could help. By the time they arrived at the hotel, he was in a panic, not only because John's life-threatening injuries were gone, but because they seemed to remind him of an incident that happened in Vietnam. From what I could gather by what he said, things didn't turn out so well there. He did seem to calm down a bit, however, when John assured him that "tomorrow is another day." Dr. Smith described John's wound as "healed up with fresh blood." I wonder if that means he could see a scar. If so, then at least we can scratch Wolverine off the list of things John might be. Shortly after that impromptu diagnosis, the doctor turned with John to look at the hotel as Butchie and Kai were emerging from his room. John told the doctor that he's in the right place. I wonder if that meant physically, mentally, spiritually or all of the above. I always had such a tough time with multiple-choice questions! OK, so Cass witnessed Mitch levitate and all of a sudden she's in on the mysterious vision kick, too? I wonder if there's a reason why she and Kai are the only two characters to have had visions so far, or if there will be more down the line. I also wonder how many piercings Cass has and where those are located. When Cass brought John back to her hotel room, Mitch asked him if he needed to stand aside while he passed or if he'd simply part like the Red Sea. Just another biblical reference I felt was worthy of mention. John, however, moved aside. Could that have been Milch's subtle way of dismissing that theory? So was that hot blonde in the Mustang Shaun's mom or what? Excellent dialogue from the episode: "May this pain come to Clinton for disgracing the Oval Office," Bill said after tearing the duct tape he accidentally applied to his lip. The man has a way with words! "Are you related to the Yosts?" Dr. Smith asked Linc. "Not by blood," Linc replied. "Maybe you just smell it in the water." "Well my testicles are on display to the neighborhood," Bill said as a way of inviting Butchie and Kai inside his home. "Is that too overtly gay?" Barry asked Ramon and Meyer after asking them if they would like to become permanently associated. "My god, you have an erection!" Bill said to Butchie after walking in on him and Kai. "I wanna bring down the hammer back at your place," Butchie said to Kai after Bill's interruption. "Bill's not Freddy's first Bill," John said to Dr. Smith while watching Bill and Freddy argue. Shortly after, he added that "Freddy's not Bill's first Freddy." Ah, well that explains that! "I'm here on orders from my bird," Bill said to Freddy after bringing coffee and donuts as a gesture of good will. Once a cop...
