( Spoilers 515 Blue On Blue )
All in all, absolutely brilliant episode! Definitely one of my top 3 favourites! Hee! :oD
Sergio just tweeted this pic:
( Spoilers for 415 )
Also, Michael Shanks is in this ep, so for Canadian fans of MS, don't forget to watch Flashpoint on CTV tonight!
EEEEEEEE!!! Finally, FINALLY a little bit more info on Blue on Blue! (LJ's still not letting me use LJ cut, so I'm using spoiler space again)
Blue on Blue
Spike responds to a distress call from Sam's sister and suddenly finds himself held at gunpoint by her criminal ex-boyfriend. Meanwhile, Team One responds to shots fired at a metro depot where two men have broken in to rob it.
Now, let's compare this to the following from Michael Shanks' website I posted a while ago:
The episode (at filming time) is titled "Blue On Blue". Michael plays a character named David Fleming, who abducts Mike "Spike" Scarlatti (played by Sergio Di Zio) in order to force him into using his computer skills to aid Fleming's efforts to steal from the police evidence depot.
So, yep, Natalie's definitely involved, and I'm guessing the criminal ex-boyfriend is part of the gang that's trying to rob the depot. The question is where this is all going to be taking place. Is Fleming's gonna take Spike to the depot or is he going to force Spike to work his computer magic from some remote computer? And in the case of the former, is he going to take Natalie as leverage? And when's the rest of the team going to figure out Spike's in trouble?
I really can't wait to find out! Looking forward to the promo we'll hopefully get after Day Game. Hee!
Anyway, not quite the kind of kidnapping I'd hoped for (I woulda liked to have seen a drugged Spike ;o)), but I'll take what I can get ;o)
Here's the promo for Day Game:
ETA: So LJ's been driving me crazy due to the DDoS attack. I've been trying to fix this post for days as the link to the promo wasn't working properly and the LJ cut wasn't working at all, but LJ wouldn't let me go back to edit my post. So sorry if I spoiled anyone with the ep description below! Anyway, I still can't get LJ cut to work but it'll at least let me edit, so I'm just gonna have to do it the old-fashioned way and use spoiler space.
This is ION's description of the ep:
"A former recruit, twice passed over by Parker, enables a burglary at a hockey stadium where he runs security. That Parker doesn't recognize him at first antagonizes the villain, whose wife and child have left him. On a scaffolding high above the ice, he holds Parker hostage in order to win his attention and affirmation. Earlier in the story, Raf is humiliated and angered by Parker's drills. Later, the newest member of the team realizes that the slightest miscue can put a teammate in jeopardy, as he witnesses how close Parker comes to death today."
( Spoilers for 413 )So did anyone see the promo for next week's ep? It's not up on YouTube yet so I can't post it here, but it looks like Greg's in biiiiig trouble. Yikes!
Whew! Looks like it's gonna be a really intense episode! Poor Donna...
Also, a nice little interview with Sergio from a few days ago:
A small excerpt:
"He's also had the opportunity to see his character, Spike, grow over the past few years. "It's been really cool to do," he says. "Spike was just a small part of the cast at first. He's the pup of the group and wants to play with the big boys!"
That part made me smile ;o)
Episode dates for Flashpoint
I'm looking forward to all the episodes, of course, but the ep of particular interest to me is Blue on Blue, because, well:
( Spoilers for 415 Blue on Blue )
Anyway, I have thoughts on The Cost of Doing Business, but I should really get a move-on with uni-related matters so, more to come later!
As some of you may know, the wonderful Michael Shanks (Stargate SG-1) is doing a guest spot on Flashpoint this season and his website just posted some more info about the character he'll be playing (and it involves Spike).
( Spoilers! )( Spoilers! )
Either way, I'm excited! Though, if I didn't know any better (which I don't, really), I'd say they're trying to break Spike this season! Poor Spike...as if last season wasn't tough enough on him. Still, I see lots more team moments and maybe even some h/c with Spike at the receiving end in my Flashpoint future! EEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! :oD :oD
( More thoughts and squee! )
Man, I think I could go on and on about this ep, but I've been rambling on long enough. Suffice it to say that this is now my new favourite Flashoint ep! ;o)
Just saw the CBS promo for this week's Flashpoint (the big Spike ep) and OMG!!!
*hyperventilates!* HOW am I supposed to be able to wait TWO MORE DAYS for this episode to air?! The suspense is killing me! Looks like there's gonna be lotsa team and angsting about Spike and whump...and...and....IS IT FRIDAY YET???
This was a fun episode, though I have to admit it took me a while to get into it.
( Spoilers for 403 only )Still, I already rewatched the ep three times (particularly the scenes with Spike and Greg ;o)), so it's not like I hated the ep. It was fun and there were some awesome character moments, but it's just not my favourite kind of ep ;o)
