It's been a crazy week, so I just finally got to see it. It was a fun episode in terms of the suspense and the location. It reminded me a little of the episode in S1 at the Center for the Brain with the young woman with epilepsy who was killed in the fire. It had the clairvoyant in it, too. Bad Medicine, was the name of it. There were a lot of similarities btwn that one and this, with Emily filling the role of Sarah Pensal in this one. There was also a little of Curse at Beaton Manor thrown in. Anyway, I agree that the use of radium in the episode was creative. I think that this season William is not as involved in the cases (perhaps because he's distracted in thinking about his ordeal with Julia?) or as knowledgeable about the stuff pertaining to the cases. I guess it is more realistic that he wouldn't always know about the substances, but it actually makes the narrative fall a little flat. Plus there was very little humor in this one. William hardly smiled at all (again because he was preoccupied thinking of Julia?) and actually neither did George. It was a grumpy Murdoch episode. Julia was not in this one in terms of the case really at all. I am a little concerned about Darcy actually. I do think he's trying to win Julia back. I hope she isn't having second thoughts after having a good time with Darcy and seeing that he still has feelings for her. I think she has thought that after all she has put him through (from his perspective) regarding contraception and now the divorce, that he didn't anymore. She seemed to be a bit surprised by his genuine happiness to be with her. She was very affectionate with William afterward, of course. By the end of the season, I think there will be no doubt of William and Julia staying together, but I'm sure there are still many ups and downs to come for them. I was surprised that the "affair" at the hotel still hasn't seemed to come out. By now, one would think it would have. I guess when it finally does, all hell will really break loose. Overall this episode was okay, but not quite as good as I hoped, I guess.
