February 21, 2007: "Second Opinion" Season 3, Episode 12

It took me several minutes to realize that the guy in the glasses was Joe, at which point I thought, "Oh my god, Joe looks so old and beleaguered." Marie is sick and dying. It was a good thing Allison woke up.... What a horrible dream to open up on. I hate the dreams that are so sad you burst into tears as soon as you wake up or worse, when you wake up already crying. This was a much more somber show than last week's. But once we got going, this one turned out to be a little predictable since I figured it out kind of easily and I never figure these things out. But again, I like how the two stories intertwined until everything was revealed. I love that the steamy hot Scanlon had his own story line. And when the deputy mayor said she would stay and be there for him, I knew he was dreaming. Scanlon at an AA meeting - did we know he was an addict? Wasn't he drinking wine with his lady friend at the restaurant when he was going to give her his key? It was also great that Scanlon pretty much cracked this one by himself. My favorite part was that the guy showing them the house reminded me of Cameron from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, (I still love that movie,) though I'm not 100 percent sure it was Alan Ruck. Can anyone confirm? Loved the line: "It's how we love them while they're here." Has anyone noticed over the last two or three episodes that Allison and Joe are doing an awful lot of fighting? I couldn't believe she hit him with, "You're mocking me." I wonder if fans had been complaining that no one has a relationship as argument-free as the Dubois' and so the writers added in more marital conflict. I don't like it one bit! I like the stability of their lives. But perhaps Jake Weber likes the dynamic better. It sure gives him more to do. It was hard to watch Allison take the Marie dream so personally; I can only imagine what it would feel like to have a terminally ill child. It really threw her off her game, because she usually comes around to the truth a lot faster than she did in this ep. Now I am missing Devalos. He has had precious little screen time since the show where his daughter comes back from the dead to talk to him. He was playing such a central role; let's have a little more, shall we? The girls are fantastic. With every new ep, Ariel is becoming more and more of a young woman and Bridgette just gets funnier. It is also exciting that as Marie gets a little older she is starting to be more of a presence. I always wondered where Marie is when Joe or Allison is picking up Bridgette and Ariel from school. She's rarely in the car. They never seem to have a babysitter, and they never say they are going to pick her up from day care. She really bonds with Allison, and she's just adorable. I guess I should say, they are just adorable, since Marie is played by twin sisters, Miranda and Madison Carabello. Next week, Eric Stoltz!! I'll be sunning myself in Florida (don't be too jealous, all you cold East Coasters), but I wouldn't miss an ep for the world. See you then! show less
