Wow, what an interesting episode! First of all, I am SO glad Fisher is back. Daniel and Laura don't have nearly as much chemistry as Fisher and Laura did last season. And I never really got the feeling that Laura loves Daniel, compared to how smitten she was with Fisher when they were together. So I definitely think Fisher is a better match for her and i'm glad that seems to be the route the show is taking (although I'm not sure what's going to happen with this marriage proposal next week!).
But I'm not extremely excited about Fisher either, because after all he did break Laura's heart. That being said, he didn't try to win her back, he wanted to sort of make things right and I think that's really honorable.
Daniel has been such a good sport about the whole Fisher thing even though he's suffering on the inside. I have to say I like him a lot more now than I did earlier in the season. I think from this episode though it's pretty clear that Laura still has feelings for Fisher. And it's so self-sacrificing that Daniel broke the clock so that Laura can find out who she wanted to be with. Because really he could have just confronted Fisher and told him that he would never let Laura go. I really admire that Daniel was willing to overlook his own feelings for Laura's well-being.
Ideally I would like Laura to end up with Fisher, but I'm not sure Laura is quite ready for marriage as was mentioned in the preview for next week...
All-in-all this was a great episode. The only thing I did not like was the whole Alf/Minnie storyline. That was really awkward in my opinion. I mean, Minnie is sweet but she acts like a child. And Alf has wisdom beyond his years what with having to look after his family and everything. It just seems like an adult is falling for a child and it's just weird. That kiss made me cringe. Eh.
Well it's almost the end of the season, and I feel like we've been lacking in solid storylines for Dorcas, so that's my main complaint from this season. But otherwise it has been enjoyable. Maybe in season 4 we'll get some good stuff for Dorcas!
