I think I’ve been spoiled when it comes to White Collar. Pun intended. I mean, I came into the show late, and even though I didn’t actively seek out spoilers for the main plot stuff in the first few seasons, I didn’t avoid them, and as a result I found out about a lot of the twists and cliffhangers ahead of time. And I’m glad, because I think “Judgment Day” would’ve made me too sad if I didn’t go into it forewarned.
This is my first experience of seeing a major White Collar cliffhanger without warning, and I have to wonder, is this how fans of the show always feel at the end of a season? Is my reaction of staring wide-eyed at the screen and wanting to say, “No! What the fuck?” just par for the course?
I want to do a proper breakdown of this episode, but I’m afraid the ending trumps everything else. Still, I’ll give it a try.
I enjoyed this a lot more than last week’s. Not that I thought last week was bad. This week’s episode also felt longer for some reason. I don’t mean that as a criticism…it just seemed like there was a lot going on. I feel like I’ve probably already forgotten some stuff.
Now that I’ve got my i_reversebang fic finished and posted, and my workload is a little lighter, I feel like I can write up a reaction post with a clear conscience.
On a personal note, watching WC these past couple weeks has made me really glad I booked an appointment with my eye doctor. I haven’t watched the TV in my living room much since Fringe and Supernatural’s seasons ended. So…mid-May, I guess. I think my eyes must have gotten even worse in that time, because sitting more than a few feet from the screen now involves lots of squinting.
I enjoyed this episode a lot! And it’s nice because even though I’ve been busy as hell this week, I had some time to enjoy the episode and have time to post about it before it fades from my memory too much, which is always nice.
