“I may not know a lot about a lot of things, but I DO know how to blow shit up.”

Boyd Crowder, with the ultimate evidence that smoking kills. Aside from that moment–which is just plain awesome–this episode is ripe with crackling dialogue, sustained tension, and interesting character development, and it looks as if Justified is really shifting into gear for the season 5 endgame.

Nick and Jess first kissed back in “Cooler”, and that began an excellently handled relationship arc that brought us laughs, tears, and full-on awkwardness. Yet, all good things are bound to come to an end sometime.

“Love doesn’t make sense! I mean, you can’t logic your way into or out of it. Love is totally nonsensical! But we have to keep doing it, or else..we’re lost, and love is dead and humanity should just pack it in. Because love is the best thing we do..Look, I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s just true. You love Barney, and he loves you.. and that doesn’t have to make sense, to make sense.”

Change is a scary thing, isn’t it?

Girls features characters who consistently fall back into old patterns, looking for a direction, a goal or sense of self-worth to grasp onto. Yet, what happens when those old patterns are broken, when we run into obstacles that, only weeks before, were facilitators?

“I don’t want to be another Frank or Monica.”

The one thing that might help prevent this from happening is Fiona’s support system: her family. As much as this mistake’s cost her much of the goodwill she’s built up over the years, people like Debbie, Carl, and Lip will always be there for her, much like she was there for them for so many years.

Season 2 of Friday Night Lights begins with a fractured family, with Coach Taylor at TMU and with Mrs. Coach and Julie remaining in Dillon. In a way, this is reflective of the entire show this season: the pieces of the puzzle are present, but they never quite fit into place, never gelling in the way that the brilliant first season does. There’s a hell of a lot of potential, but much of it is squandered in favor of melodrama or storylines that have no place in this show.
