So I thought I'd get the ball rolling with this show. I've been looking forward to this show coming back more than any other this year. I was excited about seeing how it was going to play out because we all knew Violet was going live, that makes watching her fight to survive so much easier.

I won't say I was disappointed with how it went down but it wasn't quite what I was expecting. I was expecting this heightened level of intensity and I actually found it very calm. I'm not saying it's a bad thing but yeh...I found it to be very calm.

I thought the flashbacks were an interesting move, it really did help give everyone else that back story of 'before Addison' which is something that show needs a bit. Well I found them interesting. They did mess up the timeline again but I'm trying not to dwell on that. Pete's wife at various times during the show has been dead 8, 6, and 9 years (in that order).

I thought every one's reactions were quite good. I liked how Pete and Sheldon interacted, it was this strained kind of awkward, where they were both feeling similar emotions but having different ways of expressing it. That moment where they're with the baby and Pete asks Sheldon if he wants to sit with him, and Sheldon asks what his name is. I thought it was a touching moment.

And about the boy, I'm so glad they got him back, Cooper did a good job of getting him back. You could see he wanted to just take the baby but he knew he couldn't. I did miss Cooper a bit this episode, it is obvious he's feeling some major guilt about what happened, I think that's why he didn't want to go sit with Violet but in that final scene when Violet wakes up and everyone but him is there, I wished he was there too. I think it was because they did a close up of everyone in turn and they were all relieved and he wasn't there. I'm sure there is a reason for and it'll get played up in the weeks to come, all that guilt.

And lastly I want to say I think the make up and style departments did a good job. I thought it was cute how they made Cooper, Violet and Naomi look younger by changing their hair and they gave Sam glasses (or have I just never noticed them before). And they did a really good job of making Violet look like death, she really did look like she was about to die which I haven't seen too often, usually everyone still looks pink.

Yay! someone wants to talk PP with me.

I thought the kid looked a little like Sheldon too but I didn't dwell on it. I feel quite sure in myself that the kid is Pete's. We find out for sure in episode three.

And to answer your question about Dell. He got Betsy back in the season final. Heather turned up strung out on crack and told Dell if he gave her $10,000 she'd give him Betsy. He went to ask Naomi for the money but Sam interrupted, and in the end Sam gave him the money. When Heather came to collect though he took Betsy and didn't give her the money. He told her to go get help, and if she didn't let him keep Betsy he would phone DCF and she'd loose her custody.

I did see the promo for next week. I think Violet is going to hand the kid over for a bit but I think she needs to so that she can get her head into the right frame of mind and get the help she needs. I wrote a big long rant about this on another board. I think I'm going to start a Violet thread for it.

Could be, the promo for next week did look like it was going to have a bit of drama in it.
