I know I should make this post after a rewatch because there was TOO MUCH in tonight's ep that I felt was significant. Most importantly I spent the entire episode shouting at Chris to OMG HURRY AND ASK SHAZ. I knew, knew, knew that when Keeley Hawes said in some interview that there will be a wedding it would be Chris and Shaz. I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE WHAT DRESS SHE WILL WEAR. It will be totally be the best dress ever, yes. I'm also ignoring the fact that Alan Jackson was evil in it. Boo. Tonight's episode that is, not Shaz's dress.

I totally heard the music from LoM 2x8 when Annie asks Sam to stay tonight, or did I want to hear it? I DON'T CARE. I heard it in my head with that last scene with Alex and Gene. Speaking of which, my ship was officially BACK tonight. SHE THOUGHT SHE'D LOST HIM. HER FACE, OH HER FACE. They were both so very hot tonight, oh yes.

So... Masons, huh. Not sure what this whole thing means for Ray but let's face it, as long as Gene ain't in on it then I don't care.

So, in terms of theories, I think two episodes in and things are just coincidences at the moment. If we have another Princess Di ref and another LoM ref (tonight's one was blatant. And I can't tell you how disappointed I was about the old lady's card reading. It was Ray all along. Pfft. But still a Tyler name check is a Tyler name check - especially with Gene's reaction.) next week then maybe I'll start thinking more of it. Of course my theories about pretty much everything ever are often very wrong so maybe I'll stop before I even begin.

Basically I'm just very happy that A2A is continuing to be awesome telly. Last week's was a great series opener and tonight's was really strong. The sort of strong you get towards the end of a series not at the beginning. If it gets better then, well... I MIGHT DIE.

Oh yes, before I go... Best use of a Phil Collins song in anything ever made. ♥

That was definitely Sam/Annie music there at the end, because I heard it too. And I may have flailed a bit over that, like last week when there was just the tiniest bit from the LoM theme when the girl said she was from Hyde? I LOVE IT.

And I was so weirded out that Alan Jackson was evil, omg. AND EEEEE CHRIS/SHAZ <3.

I LOLed mostly because of all places for Chris to ask Shaz he asked her in the middle of the station. Tres awesome, says I.

Tonight was soooooo shippy, wasn't it? I ♥ Alex/Gene, I truly do. Because their snark is epic, and THEY WANT EACH OTHER, but they don't, and OMG, SO GOOD.

I had a feeling Gene wouldn't be in with the Masons. I guess the whole idea in my head is that we have to be able to know that Gene is a "good guy", despite sometimes acting morally blurry at times. I think Gene has changed SO MUCH from LoM though. Not in a bad way for sure, but he's toned down a bit, but that's okay. I'm curious as to what it means for Ray as well, and when they were talking about Tyler before they revealed it was Ray, I literally flailed at my TV. I was disappointed it didn'e turn out to be more, but then again, I'm never willing to count out the writers of this show.

Also, Phil Collins, lol. I saw the soundtrack listing and saw that track was on there and my first reaction was "HOW ARE THEY GOING TO PUT THIS IN THE SHOW? EPIICCCC!" ♥

Also, please tell me that it isn't just me who has noticed it, but often when Alex is on screen or entering a scene, a phone in the background is always ringing... like, A LOT. I know they are in a police station and all, but it is quite noticeable to me....?

I love both Gene's so very much, and yes, they're quite different.

The Phil Collins song was the only one I didn't burn to my computer because I was like, err WTF? But I loved, loved, loved how they used it. THE LIGHTS.

Oooh, interesting. I did not notice this but I'm going to rewatch in a bit so I'll keep an eye out for that. I love how this show makes me suspicious about every detail.

That's kind of snap win that the dude who guards the door in the Freemasons is actually called a Tyler (or Tiler as well, as wikipedia informs me). Show is cool beans, show is.

THERE ARE PICS OF SHAZ IN HER DRESS ALREADY. I can do a search for, if you'd rather not wait?

That ep was great eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. YAY SHOW.

Even my rl friends who aren't that in to it agreed with me that this week's ep was the best thing ever. That's when you know it's good.
