It’s Week 19, not a lot of things too watch for me, hopefully that will change soon.
An usual reminder: the article is created as a fun way to share with all of you our favorite moments of the week and to read about yours, maybe even to recommend someone a new show worth watching. And the poll is simply to see how many people out there also liked the same scene as you did. THIS IS NOT A CONTEST. THERE ARE NO WINNERS. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. We welcome relevant, respectful comments.
My choices this week are (in the alphabetical order):
Episode: “Dark Wings, Dark Words”
Date: April 7, 2013
Actor: Michelle Fairley
The Scene: Lady Stark’s story about Jon Snow
First, I was actually torn between two scenes, this one and meeting Lady Olenna. She just seems like a fantastic character (same for Margaery!) and I loved seeing Sansa getting a chance to say what she (and all of us) thinks about Joffrey. Even though she was so scared. And also, I’m feeling like the things are getting really interesting with the arrival of these new characters to the city. Can’t wait to see what they’re planning. Surely, they got plans.
The reason why I chose this scene instead is probably the fact that it’s the one that just stuck in my head the most. Very memorable scene, story and the performance by the very talented Michelle Fairley. Incredibly moving confession from Lady Stark about her wanting little Jon Snow to die and then not being able to love this motherless child. Made me feel really sorry for her, but even more for Jon. It must be hard to see someone who’s constantly reminding you of your husband’s betrayal, but the poor little boy should never pay a price for it. He didn’t even get a chance. It makes you wonder “what if”. I highly doubt that Lady Stark was right about every tragedy since that time being her fault. But, maybe, just maybe, something could have changed for the better. Unfortunately, it’s too late now to wonder, looks like we’ll never know.
2. Show: PSYCH
Episode: “Deez Nups”
Date: April 10, 2013
Actors: James Roday, Maggie Lawson
The Scene: Shawn telling Juliet the truth
This scene may not be my favorite, but it was just so important for the show that I have to mention it. In an episode so funny, romantic, positive and just great in general, this ending was completely unexpected for most of the fans and hit us hard. Of course, the truth about Shawn not being a psychic had to come out at some point, but it’s this timing that none of us (or at least me) never saw coming. Just when the things were going so great for the show’s main couple… Well, that’s just it, I guess. The creators could not wait any longer, Juliet and Shawn couldn’t make another step forward without this one last problem on their way. I just really hope it won’t take them long to get back together.
About the scene itself, very emotional and really amazing performances by both of the series’ stars. And especially the shout-out for James Roday who was also the director and co-writer of the episode! What a brilliant job he did. I absolutely loved this flashback bit, where Shawn remembers their best moments and makes the decision to tell Jules the truth. Also, the quote: "I'm good at what I do. And what I do is good. Isn't it?" Shawn’s desperation is so sad, but this simple line feels right. Also, nice to see Gus immediately noticing something is wrong , just always being there for his best friend.

5. FROM DARTH LOCKE
Mad Men, “The Doorway”, April 7, 2013, Actor: January Jones
The Scene: Betty's search for Sandy
Mad Men continues being exceptionally surreal as it furthers last seasons Charles Dickens/Theological-esqu themes in the season 6 premiere! There were so many scenes I loved, but thought this to be one of the most surreal and really plays well to our vein Betty struggling/soul searching to hold onto her youth, as the show is more clearly becoming about facing existentialism (death).
