Main Discussion - S5 E6 - A More Perfect Union

While the promos for A More Perfect Union make it certain that we are going to get a lot of fun fan service in this episode, I think there will also be plenty of angst and action moving the story along. Let us know what you think here, and in the S5 Episode Chatroom

Finished it - Some spoiler bits.  Great funny parts (pay careful attention especially to what Finch does and how reese and root react).  The part with Reese at the bachelorette was hilarious, fight scenes - typical Reese using whatever he can. Root's cover and how she recruits Lionel is pretty darn good and BEAR!!! The parts with Shaw were really quite interesting but not really surprising considering it's samaritan.  Fusco's parts were AWESOME, the location of a certain permit # and the reasons could be scary for the batcave/subway. Root on the horse - aestheically pretty but it really, really felt out of place and unnecessary as was the dancing - kinda sweet but as she was seriously trying to manipulate him - meh.. The ending is worrisome, so fingers crossed and so... the episode is a combination of all 3 IMO.  Great, not bad/pretty good and seriously meh.  I know others will feel differently for different reasons and that's totally cool.

What did you make of the photographer saying "so many memories and none of them mine." And Reese's response. Just like Harold's father said, "there are no extra pieces in the universe" I don't think there are meaningless comments in POI.

That little tidbit and Reese' reactions was something I definitely sat up and took notice of.  You're right there generally are no meaningless moments or comments in POI - a bread crumb to be picked up later or maybe he was relating to her always looking on the outside in - just like he seems to have always done?

Irish Uncle Ralph/Finch singing Twisted Sister is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

That was truly a "Fincherian Home Run"

Yeah, that was famous! " We're not gonna take it" keeps running through my mind now.
Also BEAR and FUSCO!

It was weird for sure, but a very pointed message to Samaritan, who listens to everything.

Well, for an episode with lots of "fun" scenes, that actually turned out to be very depressing.  

 

I did love Finch singing with an Irish brogue and that he danced with Root.  But I'm disappointed that Reese didn't either sing or dance. What a lost opportunity.  Jim has such an amazing singing voice and dance moves - Couldn't they have let Reese loosen up just a teenie tiny bit? I'm getting tired of him just lurking and looming.  He did an amazing flying Batman routine at the end though. 

The final scene with them having a drink and coming to the realization that their battle is pretty much unwinnable - very very sad.

Fusco!!! I hope he makes it out alive.  Whyyyyy haven't they told him about Samaritan yet???  

Shaw's new simulations with Greer and Samaritan were really well done. I don't buy that Shaw believes a word they say though.  I think she's playing them.  But I really REALLY am ready for her to kick Greer's teeth in - and not just in a simulation.

Shaw might actually be the scariest character on this great f'n show:
1. Shaw
2. Simaritan
3. Root
4. Greer
5. TM
6. Hersh
7. Simmons
8. The Fusco
9. Kara
10. Jeremy
