The music in the beginning of tonight's show is fantastic! Romping fun. An older man runs through the streets of the city, shoeless and in his underwear. He's trying to escape his crazy knife-wielding wife. It was perfect music for the scene.
The return of
Bridgette! Yippee! Bridgette has a school project to do after reading the comics, which are only in color on Sundays.
Joe gave the best line: "No diorama drama."
Joe: "He rebuffed you?"
Allison: "He rebuffed me!"
Morgan: "I'm dead, why shouldn't I be Zen?"
"And when I die and when I'm dead and gone... " (David Clayton-Thomas singing a Laura Nyro tune). The use of music in this show has moved to a whole 'nudder level.
One of the things I really like about
Medium is how things reveal themselves. They always start with a basic story and you think you know what's going on. Then, slowly, each layer gets pulled back and a new piece of the drama comes to light and shakes everything up. This happens again and again until the truth finally reveals itself, or
Allison tells us what the truth is.
This ep was all about what people take with them to the grave and what they have to reveal to be able to be restful. Though Morgan was very Zen-like, he was not at peace once Allison told him she was going to find the person who murdered him. Didn't he want justice, after all? Fortunately for Morgan, Allison did keep pursuing the truth and could finally bring real peace to the dead man.
It was also a love story about a love that could not reveal itself in life, but would bring an unexpected comfort in death. It was a story of friendship and what it means to be a good friend. To some that means killing your best friend. The friend in life turns out to be not so much of a good friend, while the stabbed husband becomes a good friend in death, helping Morgan see what he's given to his unrequited love, even though it wasn't what he had intended.
When Morgan got ticked off at Allison being in his death he started to give her bad dreams. This was a hysterical scene, even if it did get a little gruesome.
What I want to know is how Allison got away with talking to Morgan in the middle of the DA's office without anyone noticing. When she talks to dead people, is it really just in her head? Was she just standing there looking as though she was staring at the wall? And if she does talk out loud, wouldn't someone have heard her? It was all very strange.
Scanlon seemed to take everything she said at face value and went after all of her leads, finding that her dreams were right on.
Devalos even granted her more of the benefit of the doubt than usual.
All in all, a fun show and always a joy to watch.
