HawthoRNe 3x09: Signed, Sealed, Delivered

Original Air Date: 9 August 2011

Storyline: With Nick's mother dying, Christina is forced to cancel her trip. Steve receives disturbing news about his father. Miles says goodbye to James River. Best Quote: 

Camille: We all make mistakes. And we all have a chance to make them right.

Review: "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" is the new definition of bad. I know I shouldn't start with the conclusion first, but I just can't help it. I am so sorry to say this, because I started watching the show with high hopes, but it went down so fast I can't even remember if it was ever good. The whole story was flawed, there is way too much going on and not enough for a medical procedural. If I want soap-opera drama, I watch Desperate Housewives. I expected this to be a series about nurses and instead it just ends up being about nothing in particular.

So, we have a cancelled trip, a funeral, a break-in, a wedding toast, both Nick and Tom being followed by some creep... and on top of all this, bad, really really bad dialog and acting. I had a lot of trouble finding a decent line for the above "Best Quote". Camille finding the gun was a useless and weird moment. Jada Pinkett Smith ran around the entire episode with a fake expression of pain that seemed more appropriate for constipation. She was so bad that I ended up not even watching her when she was on the screen. But, on the other hand, the entire cast was bad. Camille and Miles saying goodbye to each other didn't feel even remotely like and honest moment, and Christina talking to Mrs. Renata's coffin was excruciating to listen to. Asking Kelly to go pick up the letter from the police station was useless, given that Christina didn't tell Nick in person what she felt, but ended up leaving him the letter anyways. And the whole thing with the guy seeking revenge for his friend's death felt like a last minute addition. This all means we will have yet another busy season finale, where everything must happen and all things must be resolved because the show hasn't been renewed and the viewers need a sense of closure. And honestly, I hope this doesn't get renewed, just spare me the misery of having to watch Michael Vartan in a crappy show, I like him too much.
