(Out of 5 cones):
Summary: Monica Stone tries
to get Eugene Meltsner's disk from Jason Whittaker, and Jason
Clothing was on my mind
because I had wondered what the title could possibly mean. Many AIO fans, as
they usually do when new episodes are about to air, decided to start
guessing ahead of time as to what the episode might be about. The most
logical reason (by looking at the title alone) was that a character that is
thought to be a "good guy" would really turn out to be bad. The
idea that sticks out in my mind the most (and the one I agreed on myself)
was that, according to pre-listening guessing, Margaret Faye was in this
episode, but she had changed her ways. She was not a "good guy"
anymore, and apparently, her true cunning, evil ways would be let out of the
bag. This idea was based on what Bart Rathbone said in
One About Trust.
According to Bart, Margaret planned on "breaking up the old boys
network" when she became mayor. Fans of the show drew conclusions that
she indeed would turn raw on them. Of course this idea never actually was
broadcast when Sheep's
Clothing aired on the
radio... many fans were very wrong on their assumptions that Margaret would
be involved in the Novacom Saga.
the episode, I must admit that I really enjoyed it. We had only seen Monica
Stone's bad, creepy side, but hearing her more light and happy side (at
least it seemed that way) was quite enthralling. Unfortunately she turned
out to be questionable in her motives and that just adds more to the
suspense. I was pleased with the way AIO handled Monica's character in this
episode, except I was bothered by her comment:
tell you what they're going to have for breakfast before they know
themselves. They're predictable.
Now, don't get
me wrong, but doesn't that seem a little fishy to you? We've barely seen
Monica Stone on the show and suddenly she "knows" just about
everything about Jason and Walter, to the point that she knows whether or
not they're going to eat waffles or pancakes. That seems just a bit
unrealistic to me.
previously mentioned, this episode was very enjoyable in every aspect, but
as I am a pessimist (to an extent), I must pick at yet something else. Good
old Whit... what happened to you? Back in the day Whit was never out to
blame, but now I'm not so sure anymore. Whit greatly surprised me when he
told the FBI:
something you should know about her.
referring to Erica Colburn and how her father works at Novacom. That's just
a bit unsettling on my nerves. At the beginning of the Novacom Saga in Green
Eyes and Yellow Tulips, Whit told Connie that he's not against Mitch
because he works at Novacom. So now... why would he want to nab Mr. Colburn
because he works at Novacom?
I believe I
mentioned this in my review of Twisting
Pathway, but I'll reiterate what I've said there. Whit is different now.
Back in the day, Whit used to look for the facts before blaming someone for
wrongdoing. The Middle East must have changed Whit's personality because I
don't know Mr. Whittaker anymore. Now don't get me wrong, Mr. Whittaker is a
great character, but how he acted directly at the beginning of the episode
really irritates me. He told Agent Bourland that Erica Colburn helped
Novacom steal the Imagination Station. If the Novacom Saga took place, say,
30 albums ago, Mr. Whittaker would not be so quick to place the blame.
gears... I'm very interested to find out what's going to happen between
Jason and Monica. Hopefully, if the AIO team permits, we'll see Monica
receive Christ as her personal Saviour and she and Jason can get hitched.
That is to say that they'll have a few interesting episodes before that
happens of course!

the Snow Day category... if you know what I
