Christmas week is under way. And I thought I loved the show before, but this episode has made it jump to just under Person of Interest on my list (so that'd make it my 3rd favorite show). There are certain things I look for in new shows. What the story line is, though there isn't any yet, but with the episodes they keep shoving out like this, I don't care right now and it's still a new show. What kind of action is there and each week it has been amazing! And are we getting to know the characters? Why yes we are and of course, my favorite, are there any love romances in the air? And there aren't just one but two, maybe three, if you count Sylvester and Megan. But I just believe those two are just friends. So as you can tell, it has almost everything I look for in a show. But this episode pushed it over the top to being a show I'm obsessed with and am totally bummed we have to take a week or so break until the new one.
Now that that's out of the way, let's talk about why I loved this episode. Megan of course, we get to see more of her and I love that because I really like Megan. She tries to get to the bottom of why Walter doesn't like Christmas or have faith in anything. Then, the horrible incident happens.
First, let's just take a minute to say that is Walter perhaps changing a little bit? I loved how he just jumped up and went over to help the boy try to figure out how to fly the kite. Though it probably was more for Walter, then for the boy, but still, I just feel that he's starting to get a little softer and able to be around people better.
I thought that that was the last time we were going to see that nice little boy, but I was wrong. He was actually the main focus throughout the whole episode when he went into one of the caves and a sink hole happened. Now this is something different from Walter. He immediately went into action and tried to help save that little boy and even got his whole team on board. Of course, Walter might have done this before, but we don't totally know how he was in these situations. Not that he ever dealt with something like this, but you know what I mean.
Walter did not give up once on trying to save that little boy. He still doesn't know how to react being under pressure, though and blames Sylvester for not giving an accurate calculation on how much time the boy had. That's when his fear of being on the job finally comes in when I had thought they had already gotten rid of that story line, seeing as he was at work just fine in their headquarters. Since Megan was there, she was able to give him an awesome pep talk? If that's what you want to call it. Even though it sounded a little harsh, it's the jolt Sylvester needed to get back into the team and came just in time to help.
So, eventually, after Walter goes in a couple times to talk to the boy about what they are doing to get him out, the last trip almost ended deadly. They both got out fine and I was able to breath a sigh of relief when the boy woke up.
The best moment of all. Ok, maybe not the best moment, but one of my favorites in the episode. When Happy realized that she needs to just be brave and give the letter she wrote to her dad. She ends up not giving it to him, but that makes him say something. He knew all along that Happy was his daughter and they made up and they came to the dinner party! Toby, of course, was the first one to officially come over and say hi to him. But still, I'm glad that something good happened to Happy.
I just love Paige a lot. She tried to calm the boy down and try to get the team into the Christmas spirit. None of them had good Christmas memories growing up, but Paige is determined to give them one now. She decorates the place and throws a dinner party. Well, she really wants to cheer up Ralph because Drew had a chance to go try out for a baseball team. No one was surprised that Drew left during such a big holiday as Christmas. The present they gave Ralph was cute. They set up a huge domino effect and the end result was "snow"! The present exchange was awesome and I loved the present Paige ended up getting for Walter and there was almost a sort of moment between them! I thought for sure they were going to be under a mistletoe, but I guess they don't want to do that yet. That didn't stop Megan and Sylvester being under one, though. But it was just a kiss on the cheek. I don't think anything will go on with them. Oh and speaking of Megan, she's decided to try out the trial program Walter has been wanting her to go on and he finally admits that the whole thing with the kid was a miracle. I think it was because of his sister making him realize there was such a thing as one.
