How amazing was this week’s episode? I loved that Grace’s patients at the hospital were directly linked to her mob case, though I know they can’t do that every week. Just like in the pilot, I spent the hour stressing over whether she would back down to Constantine or narc on Shaw. Man, she has some balls! I hope in future episodes that she shows her mom and Nate that Constantine’s motives behind getting the Disciples are purely self-serving, though I don’t understand why they can’t see that already. I found it really hard to believe that none of them, including Grace, knew that Marcellus Coin led the Disciples. Not to mention the fact that Constantine suddenly switches hangouts in the third episode. It’s almost as bad as the New Girl Coach-Winston debacle.
Of course, Zach Gilford plays the hero again when he saves Grown-Up Landry’s (Mr. Kelton) son. It was like watching him throw that first touch down all over again. However, this is coming from a woman who could watch him just wash his hands for the entire hour and still think it’s a great episode, but you can’t deny how perfect his character is. Option A or Option B? Ummm, how about both?
Then there’s her childhood flashbacks, I like that they tied in her parents fighting with her mother telling Nate the truth about their father, but I thought it was kind of weird that they use the ‘running away’ situation when she’s already made her decision to stay in Chicago. She also sounds a little self-righteous to me when she says she had ‘a home and a purpose,’ but whatever. I was fully ready for the episode to be over after Constantine’s car explodes, and I found myself actually groaning about another scene until we find out that Moretti is still alive! I’m really interested to see where Franco’s allegiance truly lies, and if his deception causes him to lose Grace again. And the White Cadillac! Obviously, finding her father’s killer is going to take a backseat to the Moretti story line, but I can’t wait to see what happens!
What did you think of last night’s episode?
