Rearview mirror II.
By Matti Merilaid.
why am i the prettiest when i see myself in my rearview mirror?
So many semis, so many mirrors. Las Vegas, NV to BIsbee, AZ, December 2019.
Previously on Heartland… Lou told Mitch she loved him & oh yeah almost forgot about that whole saga of events.
Lyndy is also talking and giving high fives and it’s real adorable.
AND we get a “wife” aka Cassandra mention not once but twice! Once when mentioning her doing acupuncture and second when Caleb mentions getting the wife’s approval. If only we saw her (RIP Amy’s friends)… but one can dream.
AND a Scott mention (so clearly Ty is still somewhat working with Scott, or at-least using his equipment) so clearly his business is still thriving. Did Ty go back and work with Scott since his own personal side business went downhill?
Okay, I loved 85% of Ep. 1303.
The 15% I did not like consists of the ridiculous Lou-Mitch plot, and the complete and utter disregard for series continuity.
To that latter point: Is it really that difficult, dear Writers, to see/remember that Marion had a birth year of 1961? It’s right there on her gravestone in the bloody PILOT EPISODE. How hard would it have been to shove back June’s birth year and death year so as not to coincide with Jack’s married years with Lyndy and fatherhood of Marion?
I had a wee bit of a chuckle with Caleb’s “I didn’t even know you had a cellar” quip. (We didn’t either, Caleb. We didn’t, either.) But then that’s been the M.O. of The Writers: shoe-horn in an element when it is convenient for the plot.
Now, I would not say the root cellar is an especially terrible shoe-horned-in element, since it isn’t like they even use the root cellar for anything (though upcoming episode preview would suggest it is being used as a storm shelter). But c’mon. These are the kinds of things I wish had been established clear back in much earlier seasons. It’s almost as if someone has finally granted The Writers permission to start thinking outside the box and to start asking the simplest of questions, like: “Was Jack an only child? What were his parents/siblings like? Why does he never talk about them?”
Whatever the reasons for them tackling this at this late stage, I suppose I am happy to be finally digging deeper into this family’s history. I only wish they had done it long, long ago.
Not to cause discourse but i can see through my back window if the light is on :/

I wonder what sort of pressing matter tore me away from finishing this person’s forehead
A beautiful sunset is your reward for surviving another day. Enjoy as many as you can.
