Have you ever been watching a TV show faithfully, loving the twists and turns, the interactions of the characters, rooting for the good guys and then....WHAM! The TV show Powers-That-Be throw you for a TOTAL loop? I know, for me, this is the best type of storytelling, but WOW! I was knocked down, run over and left for dead when one of my favorite characters turned and did some "not-so-heroic" activities that I never saw coming! I'm SHOCKED...and awed, actually. Awesome storytelling! The episode's been over for almost 2 hours and I'm still sitting here trying to justify what he did. I keep thinking, "I can't believe he did that! How could he?" Too I'm sitting here trying to figure out a way to redeem him, you know, so he can eventually get his HEA. But right now he doesn't deserve one. But WOW! As for writing, I really hope I'm able to shock and awe my audience someday with talent like that.
UPDATE: Wednesday night...still thinkin' how much I hate him right now.
