I really liked this episode. Not as awesome as the last #24 episodes, that’s for sure, but entertaining.
But the pastry crime storyline? Not that much. Ridiculous. They have an emergency, one team member is already elsewhere, and Grover’s got the day off? Oh come on, show. Seems, they’ve got way too many folks around the magic table. Sometimes less is more. Let’s have a close look at the cliffhanger on Friday.
And at Steve. Enjoy, leiCa
I don’t know what he is going through. But I feel it.

The Multiple Faces of Alex O’Loughlin
As the heading says. Because that was again the saving grace. Oh, and Eddie. There was Eddie. And a Mr. Pickles mention. Woohoo. leiCa
It’s stupid work that’s always destroying his work/life balance.
Alex O’Loughlin appreciation post.
I was blown away by the last scenes of this episode. That was stellar acting by Kimee Balmilero and Alex O’Loughlin. This is what you get when you don’t catch the actors acting. Real acting is impossible to spot. And then it makes you feel something.
Steve has been through so much, suffered so much, almost his whole life consisting of pain, loss and struggle. And yet he remains such a warmhearted, empathic, giving, altruistic human. He is there for all the people who are in need of a shoulder to lean on.
And we buy it. We KNOW that Steve is this Steve, we KNOW that he is this remarkable man because of AOL. I can’t repeat it often enough. It’s not in the words, it’s in the play. Being emotional is not acting – but expressing emotions is. Alexpressions.

♥ What’s new pussycat whoa
What’s new pussycat whoa oh oh
Pussycat, pussycat, you’re so thrilling
And I’m so willing to care for you ♥
I loved the scenes with Steve and Mr. Pickles. Again, Steve was the only one who cared. I hope he keeps him until Weed-Guy can take over. We all know that Eddie can do no harm.
Enjoy, but you might discover that I was tremendously pi//ed after this episode.
He was indeed promised a pussy.
I loved the Steve/Duke/John storyline. Duke’s the last man standing who knew Steve’s Dad and it is wonderful that Duke shared his memories about Steve’s father and vice versa. Dennis Chun and Alex are amazing together (and on their own too, of course) and I would love to get more McDuke!
The transitions from Steve to Stevie and back where very well done! Kudos!
When you’re desperately checking everywhere if the newest Let’s pic(k) Steve is on.
Shallow note: Steve looked extra awesome in this episode. Maybe because he could just be Steve. Relaxed and all. Like me. I mean relaxed. Not that I could look even more awesome… *shakes her hair and leaves the room*
It’s nice to see a fun and carefree Steve once in a while. And Alex’s various Alexpressions have been extra excellent in this episode. His V.o.E. are still in full force. The play is in him, not in the words! That’s acting.
This episode made it extra hard to pick a pic. I snapped so many different Alexpressions. Here are a few. Enjoy! ~leiCa
