Disney’s Oscar-nominated short “Paperman” (originally released with Wreck-It Ralph) has finally hit the Internet. It skews to a slightly older audience than most of Pixar’s shorts (making sense as to play to the older, nostalgic, video game audience for Ralph), but it’s no less enjoyable. If you haven’t seen it, or even if you have, you should take a look.
As Sutton (Alexandra Chando) reclaims her life Emma (Chando) grows restless tutoring Ethan (Blair Redford) at the cabin, and things get really interesting when Alec (Adrian Pasdar) and Rebecca (Charisma Carpenter) arrive for their long-delayed honeymoon. Forced to head to a cheap motel she learns Sutton is hiding a secret about her time in the same hotel and finally decides to leave the lies behind and jump a bus to Los Angeles to be with Thayer (Christian Alexander). However, when she arrives unannounced to find Thayer alone with his new half-naked blonde surfer friend (Kasey Stevens) she realizes she may have made a very big mistake.
As Aria (Lucy Hale) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) discuss whether or not to tell Spencer (Troian Bellisario) that Aria’s father (Chad Lowe) saw Melissa (Torrey DeVitto) outside Alison’s (Sasha Pieterse) house the night she disappeared, Spencer deals silently with the revelation that Toby (Keegan Allen) has been working for A the entire time they have been dating. Further shaken by a text message she believes to be from Aria, Spencer makes the mistake of revealing the truth to Ezra (Ian Harding) about Maggie (Larisa Oleynik) and his son – the truth Aria has been keeping from him for months.
“You’re a real son of a bitch, Neal. But you’re the best damn son of a bitch I’ve ever seen.”
While looking into the case that destroyed Neal’s (Matt Bomer) family and his father’s (Treat Williams) career as a police officer, Neal and Peter begin an investigation into Senator Pratt (Titus Welliver). Not only do they believe Pratt is one of the a former dirty cops who was on the Flynn’s payroll, but it’s also highly likely he is the man responsible for Ellen’s (Judith Ivey) death. While Peter gets the measure of the man, Neal uses his charm to get a look at the Senator’s itinerary from his attractive assistant which allows Diana (Marsha Thomason) to place a bug on the man’s phone.
There’s quite a bit of fun here involving Bigby learning to drive a flying car that move between various worlds and dimensions (and nearly crash into several of them). Aside from the car, the comic also brings in Briar Rose fresh from her own Fairest arc to spend some quality girl time with the troubled Snow White.
However, Snow White’s troubles are just beginning as Bigby’s wife is surprised by the return of Prince Brandish, “protector of the realm, marshal of the west, and the first and one true husband of Snow White.” I think things are about to get interesting. Worth a look.
As Daisy (Carla Gallo) returns to the Jeffersonian intern rotation for the first time since breaking up with Sweets (John Francis Daley), Booth (David Boreanaz) and Bones (Emily Deschanel) investigate the murder of the death duola of a cancer victim who was buried with the young woman in a shallow grave. Sweets talks with the cancer victim’s husband (Larry Dorf), as Bones and Booth talk with the new age alternative burial director (Chuck‘s Vik Sahay) about the murder and burial of his former partner. With a focus on character and murder (rather than yet another quirky plotline) the show succeeds in finding a little of its old magic for the best show of the season so far.
