Double Feature: Horror & Comedy


Is it possible I liked this installment even more than the last one?

Harper's Island #9, "Seep": Ahahaha!  *points in delight*  LOOK AT THE ABBY/HENRY MOMENT.  It is instantly more satisfying than anything I may have previously said about him and Trish, to the point where both their goodbye kiss and reunion hug later on left me feeling a little cold.  Not even wound-doctoring could hold a candle to the Sad Head Touch of Grief.

Relatedly, WOW, it was enjoyable to see Henry finally explode like a powder keg (or the oxygen tank that I'm still not convinced won't take out Cal and Chloe next week), and technically do so in defense of/on Abby's behalf.  I was a little worried there at first when it looked like Jimmy was the only one planning to stand up for Abby, but then he came around and did his best to beat Shane to death for locking her out, so it's all good.

In other news, I think I'm quite glad Cal doesn't normally treat living patients, because I'd be a tad peeved if my doctor let his hormones get in the way of keeping me alive.  I mean, what if [whatever it is that makes monitors go crazy in TV hospitals] had happened while he was snoring in the other room?  There were no Monitors of Alerting in the clinic that I can remember.  He could have died and no one would be the wiser.  Geeze, Chloe.  I get that it's hot watching your almost-fiance in Actual Doctor mode and all, but...  there is still a tiny little part of me quite happy with this bit, though.  Because they are the best couple on the island.

Deaths: Yay, Beth's gone!  And so is Evil Stepmommy!  Both of them in fairly understated ways, but hey, they're both really annoying so anything that shuts them up is good.  Surprisingly, I still have people I'd like to cull - namely Shea and the Sheriff, but Shane works too (apparently I have a hatred for things that start with "Sh"?) - so let's get on them next.  

But the crawling through underground tunnels was really terrifying and I was on the edge of my seat with tension and suspense, jumping at every motion, sure someone was about to die.  What I really don't understand, though, is how even now people are being left/going off alone for even a minute.  Dude, no!  Don't let anyone out of your sight!  If you even have to go to the bathroom, you bring two friends (so the hallway person isn't alone) and maybe leave the door open a crack.  You certainly don't go wandering around in the woods by yourself in the middle of the night, Shea.

Although it was cool that they happened to conveniently be there to rescue Abby and disappointingly-still-alive Madison and all.

The murderer: well, it's clearly not the Sheriff.  Although it should be, and I would not object to them following through on the easy route in spite of everything, Madison's a pathological liar.  That alone is enough to convince me he's in the clear.  Meanwhile, I have decided to shuck all fear/belief that it might be Henry - which I only fear/believe because I have no will of my own and that's what the internet's been telling me - and have decided to go back to my old "blame Jimmy" theories, just because.

I choose to believe Abby is not Wakefield's daughter, but that he instead has some other crazy kid running around.  Who may be the murderer and/or someone we already know.  In fact, at least one person has posited that it's Jimmy, which come to think of it, would fit with that TV trope of unwitting half-siblings in close proximity always managing to fall in love.  I approve of this on several levels.

If gore and horror isn't your thing, then you should have another random installment of the LOLcats Meme!



Kitteh is not amused by his owner's idea of jokes.


I just really love this cat's expression, complete with crossed paws.


Yes, I did in fact title that post just so I could get a cat macro out of it. I am predictable.



Calico Cat #1 has stumbled onto mob activity, but has no wish to meet the same fate as the last squealer.


Basement Cat (complete with pentagram) will also ignore what you've done.


It comes built-in with cats.


"I told you not to wake me up before I completed my eighteenth hour of sleep."


This just in, Catnip Kitteh is inordinately amused by his own foot. Look, it has little toes!




*facepaw* "My human knows nothing about the intricacies of language! Look at this pathetic worksheet!"


I don't even know how to describe this cat's face. It's just awesome.


See, there's the first rageful update on screen #1, and he looks pretty grumpy so I bet he's off to make another one right now.


Basement Cat sits in on an unexpectedly touching funeral.


Optimist Kitty is Optimistic!




"Hah! You can't, can you? Because I've hidden it beneath my chin!"



Seriously. "Welcome to the new Wild West, bitches. Don't even think about touching this."


Innocent Kitten doesn't understand why you just tripped over the cat toy she left in plain sight in the middle of the floor.

Word Vomit Part 1
Glad to see you are back on the Abby/Henry ship, cuz Abby/Henry > everyone else

I still cannot warm up to Jimmy and/or Shane and their deaths would be perfectly fine with me. Henry stuck up for Abby and that was like the greatest thing ever. I may have screamed at my tv. :)

- Cal/Chloe need not have sex at a time like this
- People also shouldn't be going off alone (but I'd be ok with Shea's death, I'm conflicted)

Yay, Beth's gone! And so is Evil Stepmommy! Both of them in fairly understated ways, but hey, they're both really annoying so anything that shuts them up is good.

Completely, yesss

- Crawling through underground tunnels, dnw
- No way in hell do they see stupid Madisons TINY hand, in FOG, after they've passed the sewer/manhole whatever grate covering (damn Abby why did you have to be with her, therefore forcing me to be ok with the rescue)

disappointingly-still-alive Madison Ugh, yes. I mean we are rooting for the murder of a child! :/ oops

Part 2
- Sheriff shit is confusing me (Madison needs to stfu)
- I had an irrational moment in my head during the 'Wakefield's child' discussion where somehow my brain was like 'WHAT ABBY AND HENRY CAN'T BE RELATED!' (uh yeah even if she was his daughter, that doesn't make her related to Henry, I just don't know, I freaked out then was like wtf self)

Not sure where to throw this thought in, but I'm hoping it's something to do with Sheriff/Jimmy/Shane, cuz all are equally on my die list and you remember how Abby was all weirded out that her dad had gotten chummy with Jimmy in her absence from the Island. Well all 3 were on the island and could set stuff up, get in with the wedding party cuz they go way back, etc.

Oh. Does this fail my logic or support it?

Whatever all I know is that it better NOT BE ABBY OR HENRY and they both better live. The end.

Oh yeah..
I read somewhere, I forget where of course, about the Inn Keeper lady being suspicious, which is true, she keeps popping up at random times. So random I don't even recall her name.

And fortune teller lady?

Thoughts?

Working in backwards order:
-Eh, I don't think it's the innkeeper...too many of those murders required brute strength and I don't think it's plausible for her to be behind it. That and she's just too minor of a character to be the big name. Same for the fortune teller, although I'm not sure I'd rule out either one getting killed off.

Part 2: Hah, you are not the only one who had a minor and irrational freak-out moment thinking Henry and Abby were related. Although I do quite like your theory of multiple killers/multiple people being in on the murder plan; that would definitely keep people guessing if we weren't able to rely on the "X was with other people when Y was killed" theories.

Part 1: Yeah, Madison's tiny hand, in the dark & fog...no. I can't suspend my disbelief quite that far.

Re: Working in backwards order:
Even if Abby and Henry were convolutedly somehow related, I'm still shipping it gosh darn it. :)

In a few weeks when this is over and we know who the killer is, I bet we go back and are like 'what he/she couldn't have done that, couldn't have been there, wouldn't have been able to set that up' etc.

LOL fail on plausibility's part

Neat icon! And yeah, I can't wait for the post-reveal part where you mentally rewind the series and try to figure out what clues you might/should have picked up...I'm almost more excited for that than the answer, LOL!
