And I Don’t Think You’ll Like It!
Word’s out about 3.08, Chuck vs. The Fake Name, and to be quite honest, it’s got me worried. Here’s the link.
I’m worried because it seems to be exactly, precisely, conclusively, beyond a shadow of a doubt what many of my good friends here said that they don’t want to see happen. It’s exactly what many have said would drive them away. I don’t believe they were lying.
I’m the one who’s said that for good or for bad, what I appreciate is always feeling – something. And from what I’m reading, even I am going to be watching come Monday with doubt and trepidation (and how fitting that the Lenten Season has started). The last 10 minutes of The Mask were indeed a teaser for things to come.
I’ve seen the assurances that this is going to be worth the – let’s call it the emotional investment. Today, I’m not feeling sanguine about that. But then again, today, I’m not supposed to. Apparently, after the next episode we’re supposed to feel something akin to hopeless. The week until 3.09 starts to look like an abyss.
I’ve got no inside information or knowledge about any of this, so I’m taking it purely on faith that we’re being led to the brink to overlook the precipice for a reason. I can offer no assurances that haven’t been said before. This is going to be a leap of faith.
