Yes, I knew it would be...

I have serious love for Jackie Queen. Serious, intense love. Female characters; you're doing them right.

FINALLY, WE HAVE SAM MENTIONED BY NAME. Chris still thinks he's the best. ♥ Also, Chris actually showing his surveillance skills, like we were promised before A2A S1.

"Quick word about police brutality. Lots of it." HEE. HEEEEE!

Chris' excitement at the concept of a double wedding is of the absolute WIN.

I shall admit, I am TOTALLY OVERJOYED that Jackie was teasing Gene. I thought she was, but, you know, rug pulling. (One of these days that rug will be pulled and I shall break my neck and die.)

Oh. Oh. Sam. I am impressed by how Ash managed to reduce me to tears in the space of two seconds flat. Shit, Ashley. Why? WHY? Because 'ner ner ner ner ner ner', that's why. I sort of thought I'd got over my insanity, but I am sobbing here. Er. I knew this was a sickness.

Now I am thinking about how heartbroken Annie must be and I just --- oh.

I'm going to tell myself the pretty little fiction right here that this doesn't disprove my 'Sam is not dead, but in fact under witness protection and Gene DAMN WELL KNOWS' theory. Because it doesn't! And I amend my previous proclamation, written when we first heard about it; Annie is totally with him.

And Gene was best man. And sometimes looks at the picture of Sam and Annie's wedding day, and regrets that he can't just talk to Sam, because he misses him, a lot.

Another great line: "I'd hold his hand. In a manly way."

How come we didn't get a shot of Gene going over the wall? A thousand fangirls would have given you their hearts.

Gene shooting a dog? SO NOT COOL. I am glad it is acknowledged as not cool.

The Mac thing is so similar to the Harry thing, and yet, it works so sublimely that I shall not complain.


Music guys? You TOTALLY made up for crow-barred Phil Collins in 2.02. YES.

This episode was awesomesauce pudding with extra awesome on top.

I love you, Ashley. You're such an utter bastard and I think you're glorious. In an utter bastardy kind of way.

I lol'd so much at "You're surrounded by armed bastards!" and Gene's little WTF BITCH STOLE MY LINE moment. because, o hai referencing lom 1.06! ♥ it is sort of one of my favourite lom eps.

That line is also said in 2.02; the one with Harry Woolf. Those two episodes were clearly the genesis for this one.

It was the type of little speech we really needed in ep 1.02 or thereaboutes. But it was --- it was respectful, I think. Which is more than can be said for some of A2A.

The miraculous appearance of Rachel bugged me. Ash really, really is so very lazy and handwavey when he wants to be. He did that in LoM 2.04 as well.

I haven't seen the ep yet, but can't help spoiling myself:

>I'm going to tell myself the pretty little fiction right here that this >doesn't disprove my 'Sam is not dead, but in fact under witness protection >and Gene DAMN WELL KNOWS' theory. Because it doesn't! And I amend my >previous proclamation, written when we first heard about it; Annie is >totally with him.

This so needs to be fic.

I sort of wrote it? Only it was all about Sam and Gene's friendship through the seven years between LoM and A2A. Seven Years

But, yes, I know what you mean.

If Sam went off the roof after he sent his notes to Alex, why does she think Sam married Annie?

I'm so confused...Star Trek, I understood.

Please be gentle and bear in mind that I have erased series 1 of A2A from my memory. I am liking series 2 much, much better.

Sam exists as a past entity in Alex's world. Ray told us in the first episode of A2A that Sam had died around 1 year before that ep was set. We're now into 1982, so it's two years before then.

So she's talking about the Sam of 'her world' --- which may, or may not actually be the same as Sam's own world --- this is the writers playing mindtricks.

Thanks for reminding me about the dog. Major issues with dog shooting, although it was very Gene.

To me Sam/Annie married thing is just more fodder for angst. I agree Gene was best man...and it was breaking his heart the whole time.

It was awful, but yes, not out of character.

I can easily play in a world where Sam and Gene love each other but don't love each other. I started out writing gen with a smidge of het. So if I am going to take this as canon (and I'm not), it's more of the happy variety, until Sam's 'death'.

I still owe you a genfic from a comment discussion on fanficrants ages ago. I started it, but hated the way I was making Ruth come out.
