What I’m Watching: V

V: Season 2, Episode 9 “Devil in a Blue Dress” (B+)

Somehow, I neglected to realize that this is the show’s penultimate episode. Sure, there could be a third season, but no one’s really banking on that at this point. I love what that hurtling towards the end does to a show, bringing together former enemies, even though they weren’t ever really enemies, such as Ryan and Lisa, to join with the Fifth Column to conspire with Diana to take down Anna once and for all. I doubt their plan would be successful, because it’s hard to imagine where the show would go without Anna at the helm, but that’s the beauty of not knowing if you’re going to get renewed – you can do crazy things. I’m so glad that Joshua, who honestly is one of the show’s most interesting characters, regained his memory of his Fifth Column association and immediately came to Lisa’s aid and covered her tracks. Chad seems to be returning to his roots as an egotistical jerk in his efforts to save the life of his fellow reporter, and it’s a good thing that he now has friends in his co-conspirators against the Vs since he manages to be truly unlikeable without even really trying too hard. Anna being able to bliss humans is definitely a bad thing, and I couldn’t quite understand whether it was working on Tyler or not because Logan Huffman’s acting has never much impressed me. That said, Tyler is unlikely to be a big part of the big finale, and so I’m entirely psyched for what’s sure to be an action-packed, cliffhanger-heavy episode.
