Okay, I have mixed feelings about this episode.

First. Show, I will never forgive you for killing Jenna. I'm still somewhat pleased because at least she got a chance to redeem herself and she was fierce and tough and awesome for every second after she realized she'd been played. Still. There will be no forgiveness from me.

Second. So much lovely whump! It's my firm belief that Steve should be strung up and tortured more often. (Only so Danny can take care of him afterwards, of course.) I need many many h/c codas now.

Third. Show, why all this sidelining of Kono in this season? Don't misunderstand me, I'm warming up to Lori even if I was kind of meh about her in the beginning, but seriously? Kono has long history of being fearsome in the field, both in hand to hand and as a sniper. Why leave her back at weird chicken guy's place and bring the profiler on the mission instead? I would have given anything to see Kono fire an RPG from a helicopter! Please, Show, it's entirely possible to have two kick-ass female main characters and give them both screen time! It's also entirely possible to have two female main characters who are both kick-ass in their own respective ways. You don't have to turn Lori into Kono light to get me to like her. I'd prefer it if you could let Kono remain Kono and let Lori be her own person.

Fourth. Chin and Malia getting married! Steve and Danny being married! The chickens in the helicopter! Danny and Chin having screen time together! I like it!

I would like Lori lots more if they didn't seem to be giving all of Kono's scenes to her. :(
Last ep? the ep where Lori and Kono and Chin catch the car thieves? they were working together & Lori was okay there. The ep where Lori and Max teamed up against Steve and Danny--also coolness!

But when they seem to give Lori Kono's place, Kono's action? Bad scene, Show.

I completely agree that the show seems to be sidelining Kono this season and I DON'T LIKE IT! ::growl::

I think Lori has a lot of promise, if only they could actually develop her as an independent character. There have been hints of her getting her own personality, but I don't want to see her as Kono's stand-in or Steve's potential love interest, I want her to be her own person!

I emphatically agree! She's *fine* when they let her be *Lori* and not KonoReplacement!Lori or Steve'sHetReally!Lori.... I actually liked her when she was interacting with Max and being his buddy--it would be cool to see her secretly be a sci-fi geek at heart...
