Slight disappointment as season five comes to a close. The series has always walked the line between cutting edge drama (no pun intended) and pure soap opera. The season has been pretty reliable, all in all, and episodes like Rachel Ben Natan have been so innovative, so creative, that when they resort to a soap opera plotline, it’s twice as frustrating.
Case in point: Julia’s amnesia (yes, amnesia) following being shot by Eden. The bullet did not cause much damage, but the after effects put her in a coma. When Olivia gets the news that Julia is awake, Eden tells her that she has to tell her something. We never know what that is, so maybe there is a twist to this whole plotline waiting for next season. We can only hope.
