So off Bode goes to the Well. He speaks to Sam about the past, who apologizes about what happened between them. He also perks up though, admitting he used the birds to help Kinsey find the Angel key. As a result, Bode decides to do the same thing, conjuring forth the birds with guidance from Sam.
While Bolton wanders around the Ghost Plane, Ellie and Nina both rock up at Key House to try and thwart this foe. However, Bode also uses his newly acquired bird powers to distract Gideon in the process. He manages to slip back in the chimney, returning to how he was.
In the house, Tyler tells Captain Gideon that the missing key is in the graveyard; and to access it, the Ghost Key must be used. When the Captain forces James, Kinsey believes that Bode has taken control of a bird. Nina and Ellie team up to fight Gideon, and soon after, Tyler and Kinsey steal the keys when Bode uses a swarm of birds to attack Gideon. The Lockes release Bode; however, Gideon attacks Ellie and goes to throw her into the portal.
Ellie and Nina arrive at Keyhouse soon after with weapons to help in the fight against Gideon. Bode summons a huge flock of birds to attack him as a diversion as he and Sam put their other plan into action. They have one sparrow fly through the Ghost door so its body lays vacant and instead of going inside Bolton, Bode enters the sparrow. Once Kinsey sees this happen, she quickly realizes what Bode is planning.
With season three so heavily focused on determinism and the idea that people have no control over their own lives and paths, this is a very interesting scene to revisit. William comes to the conclusion that he's \"free\" now, right before Bernard and Stubbs interrupt the AR therapy at the end of the episode.
Books mentioned/books Rory is reading:Rory isn't reading anything, but Lorelai references Boo Radley (\"To Kill a Mockingbird\") and \"Deenie\" (which also gets a shout-out in Season 6).
At the town meeting, the dude from Borat (Ken Davitian) shows up to take Miss Patty out on a date. The whole scene is weird and after it ended, my husband turned to me and asked, \"Who wrote that shit\" Daniel Palladino, of course. There's a bunch of back-and-forth about pooping birds that Taylor wants to murder and the town loner's prospective protest. It's boring and I don't care about any of it. Palladino is so hit-or-miss with his townie scenes.
But our protagonist (I can't quite call him our hero at this point) is abandoning his principles one by one. He's limited religious freedom by closing the prayer rooms, and he's infringing on free speech through his antics with El-Amin.
It's his banning of Al-Qadi and his freedom party that takes the cake. The worst part is, not only is he betraying his personal ideals, the ones that his countrymen back him for, but by doing so, he's playing right into Sheik Abudullah's hand. He should really take his sister-in-law slash foreign secretary's advice on this stuff.
Can we all take a second to acknowledge how ridiculous the Abuddin version of Twitter is I know plenty of people initially considered \"twitter\" a nonsensical word, but it is based on common parlance -- \"a little bird\" is code for gossip, a twitter is a type of bird call.But what the hell is \"Bliffer\"

It turns out Lara, who seems to have shopped at Stella for new linens, may consider moving to California with the kids if Axe goes to jail so they are not surrounded by people who know their story. She is quite surprised about the plea since the man she married would never have given in if his freedom or his family had been on the line. If only Lara knew why Axe is planning to take the plea! It may be better she does not know because it could hurt her more than the fact that the man she married is going down without a fight. And their separation has never felt more real than in this scene.
Now, what does a true friend do for his best friend who is Sinking Down Wags makes Axe meet the ortolan, a delicate songbird, as well as a delicacy in French cuisine, typically cooked and eaten whole.
Tropes: Alien Invasion: The Decepticons launch a full-scale one of Detroit. Thankfully, this is merely a hologram projected by Soundwave. Badass Boast: \"Escape is impossible. Autobots inferior. Soundwave superior!\" Be Careful What You Wish For: Megatron mocks Prowl and tells him to do his worst. Prowl immediately breaks free and slices off his arm. A more subtle example: Prowl has expressed his desire to experience life as a human. He gets his wish (even though his instincts tell him that something is amiss) and has to watch helplessly along with the other human-turned Autobots as the Decepticons lay waste to Earth. Binge Montage: There's one of Bulkhead finally realizing what do Burger Bot's cheeseburgers taste like. He absolutely loves it, but then has to use the bathroom. The Bus Came Back: Soundwave returns at last after his lengthy disappearance since Season 1. Sari also returns after last being seen in TransWarped, Part 3. Christmas Episode: The first half of one, which, bizarrely, premiered in April. Curb-Stomp Battle: The Automen vs the holographic Decepticons. Surprisingly, the Decepticons lose. Forced to Watch: Megatron orders the Automen to be spared for now so they can be forced to watch the destruction of Earth. Improbable Weapon User: Human!Optimus smacks Megatron around with Megatron's severed arm. Ink-Suit Actor: The Autobots' human forms all resemble their voice actors to various degrees. Special mention goes to Bumblebee. Light Is Not Good: Soundwave's first avatar in the virtual world is a life-size white recoloring of his normal color scheme. Mass \"Oh, Crap!\": The Autobots' reactions to becoming Automen (except for Prowl, though). Multi-Part Episode: The first half of one. Mythology Gag: The paraphrasing of Soundwave's most famous line from Transformers: The Movie. The episode's plot is a partial reference to the episode Only Human of the original Transformers Cartoon, in which 4 Autobots are temporarily transformed into humans, notably Optimus' hypothesis as to how they are transformed into humans (their minds extracted and placed in human bodies) is how the transformation takes place in that episode. Red Eyes, Take Warning: Decepticons as usual, but also the final shot of Optimus, as Soundwave's reprogramming begins to take hold. Shout-Out: After the Automen defeat the holographic Decepticons, Bumblebee says, \"I don't think we're in Detroit anymore.\" The scene of Cybertron destroying Sumdac Tower brings to mind Independence Day. At one point, Sari quotes from the Christmas poem, \"A Visit from St. Nicholas\" (\"Twas the Night Before Christmas\"), replacing the word \"mouse\" with \"creepy robot bird\" (Laserbeak). Prowl running into a burning building to save a child despite having no powers is taken out of Spider-Man 2. This Cannot Be!: Bulkhead, as the Decepticon invasion begins. Optimus realizes he's right; it isn't actually happening. Blitzwing and then Starscream's reaction to the Automen demonstrating special abilities. To Be Continued: \"Soon, the Autobots will unite with us. Soon, they will call themselves... Decepticons!\" Unexplained Recovery: It's not exactly clear how Soundwave did recover, nor is it explained how he acquired Laserbeak and Ratbat (one can infer he built them). Wham Shot: Three times, no less: In the holographic reality, the Automen are shocked to see the Decepticon-controlled Cybertron approach the Sumdac Tower. Then, when they realize they're a virtual reality, the giant white Soundwave rises up and proclaims their impossibilty of escape while saying, \"Autobots inferior, Soundwave superior.\" Finally, we are treated to a lovely shot of Optimus Prime's optics turning Decepticon red in the final seconds of the episode.
Meanwhile, Leslie has rigged up a special zip-line of sorts for Gerry that he likes to call the birthday ride of death. Since no one takes him up on his offer to fly through the air like a bird, Leslie decides to demonstrate it himself. Margo helps him out with an unexpected push through the window and he crumples in a heap on the ground after hitting the safety mattress.
For those who hope for a Spiro/Louisa love match, how do you feel about this week's turn of events Spiro might soon be free of his wife, but is devastated by the absence of his children. How about that delightfully quirky, misguided birthday party Would you take a chance on Leslie's birthday ride of death or is apple bobbing more your speed Only two episodes remain in this season.
