and got a little misty


The Birth of Franklin Richards (Fantastic Four Annual #6, 1968)

Such a genuine, heartwarming moment. I feel no shame in admitting I got a little misty-eyed when I read it for the first time. From Ben, Reed, and Johnny’s initial shock to their immediate elation. They all just look so…happy. It was such a wonderful honest moment. It proves that you don’t need cosmic radiation or futuristic technology in order to qualify something as fantastic.

TvInsider: Bones Boss Teases Five Major Developments Ahead This Season

Things got a little misty on Bones’ spring premiere Thursday night as Booth (David Boreanaz), Brennan (Emily Deschanel), and company were once again forced to face the grim reality of Sweets’ death. That painful reminder sets a lot in motion, emotionally, for the remainder of the season: “Everything we dealt with in the first half of the year comes to roost,” executive producer Stephen Nathan says. Nathan laid out some of what’s to come in what they call “Season 10.2.0.”

Booth’s gambling addiction will rear its head again

Booth will go undercover in a poker ring to try and solve the murder of one of its regulars. His cockiness where his disease is concerned (“He thinks he’s got it all figured out,” Nathan says) leads to a nasty relapse. “The gambling problem is something we’ve known for 10 years, and we’ve never really explored it,” adds Nathan. “It seemed to be the proper time.”

Booth, Cam (Tamara Taylor), and Arastoo (Pej Vahdat) will be going to Iran

In Episode 19, Arastoo risks his life by going back to his native Iran to help his dying brother, who’s a little healthier than expected when Arastoo arrives. “Then, he’s about to come home, and he doesn’t quite make it,” Nathan hints. Cam, realizing she can’t live without Arastoo, heads over with Booth to rescue him.

Angela (Michaela Conlin) may not be long for the Jeffersonian team

“Angela’s always been a part-time person there, and has always wanted to get on with her life as an artist,” says Nathan. “She doesn’t necessarily want to be around dead bodies all the time, and we’ll be confronting that.”

Hodgins’ (T.J. Thyne) missing fortune will be accounted for

“Accounted for” doesn’t necessarily mean he will be back in the black, but the dangling thread of the now-dead Pelant’s theft of Hodgins’ billions will be wrapped up by season’s end.

Brennan’s father Max (Ryan O'Neal) still has a few secrets left

After 10 years, one would think there wouldn’t be any more skeletons left to unearth in Max’s life. One would be wrong, according to Nathan, and he means that literally: “There’s grave robbing involved.”

She had never been one for Valentine’s Day.

Firstly, it was a ridiculous manufactured holiday. Secondly (and, well, truthfully), it required being in love, and that never really seemed to be in the cards for Emma Swan. 

Until now.

She was in…something (read: love — big, terrifying, everything love)…with Killian, and things were…different. For the first time ever, she didn’t scoff at the cheesy hearts that started popping up in storefront windows. Maybe she even watched Sleepless in Seattle the other night with Mary Margaret, and maybe her eyes got a little misty a couple times. 

Goddamn it, Tom Hanks.

She wasn’t sure where the idea had come from, it just sort of popped into her head one day. Maybe it had been the sight of his old pirate coat hanging on the peg by the door, its dusty shoulders a quiet reminder of how far he’d come and all he had given up to be with her. A reminder she knew he both loved and loathed, of the pirate captain that had weathered time and realms, the pirate captain that had won her heart.

Maybe it was time to remind him how much she loved that pirate.

And it shall be called Richonne

The initial scene in this week’s episode (fittingly entitled “The Next World”), complete with the soundtrack of Boston’s soft-rock classic, “More Than a Feeling,” was so idyllic I was sure it was a hallucination/daydream. A few weeks have passed since the accident, and there is a very positive vibe. Michonne is looking lovely and relaxed in a soft lilac robe. Michonne, Rick and Carl are joking about toothpaste. Everyone is relaxed and there is a very gently affectionate, optimistic mood. No angst. Rick is positively serene. There is no way this could be real, right? Well it is. And things follow logically from there.

At the end of the episode, Rick and Michonne are talking over their stressful days. He reaches for her hand, and the look on Michonne’s face was so vulnerable and hopeful at the same time that I almost got a little misty-eyed (all hail Danai Gurira). They kiss, and have sex, only to have their post-coital glow interrupted by ZA Jared Leto, who seems to have some boundary issues.

Yes, the timing feels a little odd in the sense that the last episode didn’t have any hints of romance, although as we’ve noted, the two characters have been getting closer for quite a while now, not to mention the fact that a few episodes ago Rick was kissing someone else, but that confirms (to me at least) that the Jessie plotline was shoehorned in so that key events from the GN could take place, and now that it’s over, it’s time to go back to what they’ve been building on throughout the past two seasons as if none of the Jessie stuff ever happened. But hey, we’ve known that plot shoehorning has been a weakness for the show for quite a while.

All in all, this was beautifully done – as romantic as you could possibly want except for maybe overt declarations of love. All of those people who have been waiting for Rick and Michonne to hook up got their wish. As a viewer, I’m happy – giving  Michonne a romantic and sex life makes her character that much richer. And in the process, TWD has become one of the very few shows where a white male leading man has had a romantic relationship with a black woman. That’s major, and frankly, I’m impressed.

W-15 days and we have a dress

Sorry no pics cause you know who is watching. You’ll have to wait to see it after he does. Two friends from work went with me to pick it up and at least one of them got a little misty. I have great friends and apparently great taste in wedding dresses. :)
