Absentia Episode Discussion - 1x03: The Emily Show

1.03 The Emily Show
Original air date: October 2, 2017



"The Emily Show" - When the testifying witness against Emily is murdered, all signs suggest that the murder was committed by Emily. While Tommy Gibbs and the Boston Police Chief are accusing Emily, she and Nick look for an FBI agent who forced the witness to lie. For Emily, there is suspicion that this agent is the one responsible for her abduction.

This is not a play-by-play, just my thoughts during and after and in general:

Oh, so it was sweat that had Emily's hair wet. Good thinking, Fiona. I didn't make the connection.

Emily and Flynn go-karting. So fun It's good to see Emily laughing and smiling and Flynn actually being interested in her. A very good start
Of course something has had to happen. Ugh, Stana's acted crying and yelling. That woman
The scenes in the hospital with Alice - she's starting to get pissed at the situation and anyone involved. Except Flynn, he really is innocent in all of this.

Gibbs wanting to help Nick is very good. Too bad he eventually has to do his job.

Ohh, the sexual tension between Emily and Nick is mounting. I've seen the promo, so

Emily finding that book in Radford's home Her reaction, her PTSD taking over.
I don't get why the framed certificate was askew. It was straight when Emily put it back! I paid attention to it, because that's exactly what would give a person away. She paid attention to it as well, because she knows.
Well, so Radford knows, and we as the viewers see him cornered and call his accomplice to see if he knows where Emily is. Interesting!
Fiona - seems you were right with Adam being at least an accomplice to the crooked agent. Well, I guess that means he is one, too.

Nick investigating - he is not subtle at all, at least to me. The fact that the shoeprint of every agent, of every shoe they have is in the system is kind of out there, no? Is it like this usually?

There WAS someone out there when Alice and Riggs went out. It was Emily! Well, at least she has an alibi, if a weak one.

Fiona, you seem to have the show down. Gonna listen to everything you think from now on

Ok, that's it for now - I'm sure with others commenting there will be more

ETA: So, I totally forgot Jack! Starting to drink again, and we see a little of what it must have been like for him. He accuses Emily as if she WANTED to be gone. I wonder why? I mean - he basically says it was better without her. No Emily show, like he was glad she was gone and now has to deal with her being back like it's a burden. I really wonder why he feels like it. Emily blames the alcohol talking - but as they say, kids and drunks tell the truth; so what caused him to feel like this?

This episode

I loved the Emily/Flynn scenes. It was good to see them having fun, but of course Flynn got hurt

I'm not surprised Jack started drinking again. I would love to see some flashbacks of when he and Emily were younger, there's so much resentment there.

The Emily/Nick scene at the hotel was amazing. They have so much chemistry, and I loved the moment when Nick said he believed Emily. Also, nice twist that Emily was the one who was outside of the house.

So Radford is definitely involved, interesting. The final scene at this house was so intense, I was on the edge of my seat! I'm glad Emily made it out without him seeing her.

Kathrin, I agree about Nick's investigating Anyone could look at his computer screen which probably wasn't the best idea, and him asking around wasn't very subtle.

I agree about the scene in Radford's house (which is niiice! btw) - when her halluzinations set in I was thinking, oh crap, I hope she only imagines that, or of course she will be discovered right away - also with her heaving like that. And when Radford sat down, I kept thinking 'oh boy, get out, how do you get out of this?!

I was very relieved when she was out - and now has seen evidence but can't prove her old partner is involved - wow. That's gotta hurt on another level entirely, though

My thoughts are all over the place after watching this episode only once, so I apologize for my comments in advance.

I don't know what to think about everything at this point!

My big question that kept popping into my head while watching this episode was "What happened between Adam and Emily to have him do something like this?" (not saying I'm 100% convinced at this moment that he even had anything to do with the whole thing.

I'm so quick to want to side with Emily, I never even really allowed myself to think she could possibly be the one in the woods. Her explanation to Nick about why she did it, was heartbreaking! Stana took my heart and ripped it out of my chest and stomped on it in that moment. She's really good about that!

I loved the Emily/Flynn scene at the go-cart track. I felt like this was the start to the mending of their relationship. I just wish he didn't have to get hurt.

Alice...this character has been through so much and I still can't fault her feelings. Nick really should have told her about the change in the outing with Flynn!

Nick...boy subtly is not a strength of his! I couldn't believe he was investigating the evidence in the OFFICE on the COMPANY COMPUTER! Him confronting Adam was not good either.

The whole time Emily was in Adam's house I just knew she was going to get caught. I definitely was on the edge of my seat the entire time! The journal discovery was alarming. The triggering of her PTSD can happen at a moment's notice which always intrigues me. You never know when something will trigger her!

I noticed the picture thing too and it did slightly bother me because they did make it so focused on Emily paying such attention to detail and fixing it.

Again, I can't wait for next week's episode!

Candace, a very good point: What dispute or disagreement were Adam and Emily having to even help the crooked agent, or being the main puppet master in this?

Okay, wow! So, the scenes with Emily and Flynn were adorable, too bad that it ended the way it did but he's definitely warming to her and I love seeing their relationship grow.

I like that Tommy is a decent guy, I thought for sure he'd be on Emily's back by I think after they talked in the last episode he has a level of respect for her. Plus he is right, the evidence may point to Emily but right now the evidence is circumstantial (well for Harlow's murder, I think they found Emily's DNA on Semirov).

And I was shouting at my tv when Nick was researching the whereabouts of all his colleagues, any one of them could have turned around and saw what he was doing.

Loved that scene with Emily and Jack, it was so intense. I'd like to know at what age Emily joined the family. Jack definitely has some not so secret resentment towards her. Probably due to the closeness between Emily and their dad. Jack probably always felt second best and had to compete hence becoming a doctor. I was heartbroken for Emily when Jack said he wished she hadn't come back that may have been the drink talking but you could tell that's what he really thought. I can't ever really hate Jack though because I think Neil Jackson is an absolute sweetheart

That scene in the hotel room with Emily and Nick was so charged, I was sure they were going to kiss. And when Emily said that she was the one at their house I did kind of think that it could have been her in the woods last week but it was just a thought.

And I kind of think that Nick played his hand too soon by going to see Adam, he should have maybe looked into it more

And Adam is involved! When he was talking to Nick I wasn't sure if he was just intense but when Emily found that journal with the eyes I like him as a villain, Ralph Ineson plays it very well (he's been brilliant in a lot of things too). I mean, he is the villain right? Either Adam is being set up (possible) and the show is throwing us a red herring or it is him involved in which case there'll be an interesting game of cat and mouse.

My heart was in my mouth in that last scene! And I freaked out when Emily thought her eyes were bleeding

So, I was doing a rewatch of this episode tonight and I forgot to mention one thing Adam did that creeped me out. Did anyone else pick up on his closing comment to Nick being exactly what Harlow said to Nick when he called about Emily? The whole second chance comment?

I don't like that he threw that out there! I definitely might have to rethink his innocence in all this!
