I think, if there *is* a take two of Take Two, I probably on
principle will refuse to watch it! That was the most obnoxious
cliffhanger finale I think I've ever seen -- and for a show
that no-one expects to get renewed. Gnahh! (Maybe I should find
some fall show on ABC that I might otherwise watch, and refuse
to watch *that*! Just to show 'em... (:-)))
After spending much of the episode with Sam lecturing Eddie about why he
cannot investigate the case of his protectee from three years ago
getting murdered, nobody notices that Christine absolutely cannot
investigate a case involving Eddie either.
How did the magical sharpshooter keep figuring out where Eddie was
taking the person, given that he pulled it off twice? He's a lone
sharpshooter (apparently) but to pull off what we saw, Eddie would have
had to have been followed by a team of people.
Both times, the sharpshooter got above Eddie and the person he was with.
How did he have time to climb a tree? How did he shoot from one office
building into another through two sheets of glass?
At the sharpshooter's apartment, how did the arson investigator
instantly conclude accidental gas leak?
Again, another Brian Markinson episode in which he's given nothing to
do. He's supposed to be massively evil, yet we never see him doing
anything criminal, just Eddie suggesting that he does.
What infuriated me more than anything else: Sam pointed out that she's
had workplace affairs multiple times. They're awkward and end in misery.
That's a good point. Here's a solution: Return to acting. In fact, she
auditions for a role and gets it. It'll restart her career. Later in the
episode, the two of them act like they'll never see each other again if
she takes the part, but it's not like she has to travel and live in
Vancouver to accept the role. They'll still be in the same city and can
see each other as much as they like.
The episode was written by the show's two creators who clearly had no
idea where they were taking the characters.
