In a way, John Schlesinger’s ‘Midnight Cowboy’ (1969) is the perfect conclusion to this round of sixties movies. Schlesinger had previously directed three British films, but this was his first American film. It’s meticulously edited and stitched together for maximum effect and exceeds beyond just an average film.
Tuesday’s episode saw the return of familiar faces, an overall smooth job, and Smurfs spiral into madness, regret, and ultimately: fear.
Firstly, there is absolutely no scenario in which Smurf dies at the hands of someone—or something—other than Pope. It just won’t happen.
Alas! The past storyline continues, the drama between Pope and co. continues, J is questioned by a detective about the disappearance of Morgan, and Emily Deschanel (Bones) arrives to a very unwelcoming Smurf. Couldn’t she at least smile?
The stage has been set for a new leader, and the crew may not agree…
Where did Arya’s white horse go? It couldn’t even save us from this episode.
Did the writers redeem themselves from the disastrous last episode? Well, no. But it is a considerable improvement.
Jared and Riley are back to discuss the events of Sunday’s episode in anticipation (or not) of how the series will end. Come discuss spoilers with them so they aren’t as lonely!
