I’ll start this off by saying: this is a good episode. Just a good, solid episode of television with fine performances by our regulars and guest star Terry O’Quinn (who most of you probably think of as Locke from Lost but I think of as Moira Kelly’s dad from The Cutting Edge). That said, THERE AIN’T NO CLOTHES IN THIS THING. So this’ll be a shortie.
However, this is the episode that opens with everyone’s favorite holiday, CAPTAIN PICARD DAY!
That looks NOTHING like me, NOTHING
New favorite tumblr.
We don’t get much else for clothes, but we do get to see Rikes in his exercise clothes after a bat’leth incident.
I’m injured! AND SEXY
Your diagnosis is: perfectly furred chest
The dramatic reason for this scene is for Riker to say “I knew what I was supposed to do and didn’t do it.” THIS PARALLELS SOMETHING IN HIS PAST I THINK. But the real reason for this scene is for Rikes to walk around with an open bathrobe. Bev knows:
My god, that bathrobe is marvelous
I dont ever ask you guys for anything.
But this is a time where we need your help.
