Auhtor's Note: This fanfiction takes part after Gillian is attacked. It gives an alternate situation to the hospital scene.

When he grabbed her, her mind went blank. Her thoughts were consumed by escaping his gasp. Screaming, clawing, thrashing, anything she could do to separate herself from her attacker. She felt him drag her along the ground. Cold and hard it scraped against he back as she tried to pull herself free. Her surroundings were obscured by the flashes of black her mind saw, everything in slow motion where a second lasted what seemed like and hour. She felt him drop her. Footsteps...

Foster was help captive, then is drowned in a lake or a pool. Lightman saves her life by giving her CPR.
Later that night, LIghtman and his daughter are about to eat dinner.
And Foster shows up.
Lightman answers door,
" Hey, um I just wanted to drop off this case file." Foster says.
Lightman gives her a funny look, and takes the file.
"Hey do you want to come in for a moment?" Lightman ask Foster.
"Um it looks like you are about to eat" Foster says observing Lightman's daughter setting the table.
"Yea that's okay, you can eat with us."
Foster pauses for a moment, and says okay.
The three of them have...

Think these are the moments Cal's talking about? (Tim Roth--Murder in the Heartland)
Think these are the moments Cal's talking about? (Tim Roth--Murder in the Heartland)
This was such an amazing episode, and I'm not just saying that, it really was. It shot right to my #1 favorite episode, and that's because it was just fantastic.
This show really works well when it has just one case like this, and it keeps you hooked right until the end. That's how it should be. Just fantastic.


Since this is just a 1 case episode, I will only run over Cal's scenes/the ones in Afganistan because thats where the whole episode really took place.

Now we begin IN Afganistan, the war torn country, and a fantastic scene where 2 marines are captured. It's not fantastic that they were...

Shivers ran down Gillian's spine, despite the fact she was curled under her quilt. Her blood still ran cold when her memories flashed to Cal being held at gunpoint, even though he was now safely asleep in the next room. She restlessly turned to see the faint red glow of the digital clock beside her. 3:41am. She was restless, her mind still racing from the day's events, her heart had not slowed to a comfortable pace since Cal had escaped with his life. Her eyes were wide open, but her lids still felt heavy, she could not bring sleep upon her. She was scared. She remembered Cal in the room next...

VEGAS BABY!! The episode we've been waiting for has been, and it was epic. Simply epic.
While this dosen't hold up to the drama the previous episode delivered us, it can stand on it's own with the same formula as last weeks. And it really works well for this show, so let's get started!

--

We begin with another shooting (that seems to be the normal opening for this show, just as House is to people fainting or vomiting blood before opening credits.)
But once Cal steps in, he get's a warm welcome.
"Never thought I'd see it!"
"See what?"
"The day they got Cal Lightman back in Vegas."

So we were discussing Callian in the flail party forum but i figured that i would post it here too. Not that many people come to this spot (frowny face) but i figured it was more likely to be seen here so here we go!

Many viewers on the show would argue that Cal and Gillian are definitely heading into the relationship direction. I myself am one of them. While they are, at the moment, just friends there is a mutual attraction there that is hard to hide and it affects their actions both towards one another and towards others. We'll start with Cal.

Ohh Cal. He is an interesting man. The best...

And a blinding case it was. Both literally, and mentally. This episode deffinatly deserves a full plot outline and observation...I hope it's not too much to ask for, but I think that if I filled up a whole page and a half of notes, I think I might as well use them.

We open with our dear Cal in jail....he get's called a bi***, he starts a fight, get's beat up (Welcome back to your 'Reservoir Dogs', and 'Made in Britian' days, Tim!), and gets 'caught'. And for what we know, he screwed up. Now apparently no one has been able to read Cal withought any decption training, so once he got caught, I...

The best films are the ones that you can watch over and over and they never get stale. Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs are two of those films. They both have some very obvious elements in common. They were each directed by Quentin Tarantino, and had the highly recognizable Tim Roth in prominent roles. We all recognize Tim Roth as the restaurant robber in Pulp Fiction, and as the police rat, Mr. Orange, in Reservoir Dogs. Since being a part of these iconic films, Roth has remained quite potent in the industry and has managed to add an impressive list of movies to his resume. But these days,...

Here's a little Cal/Gillian fanfic I wrote and decided to post. Lotsa fluffiness :)
***

Gillian sighed as she opened the front door to The Lightman Group. Just another day. It was her birthday, but nothing usually ever happened. When she was with Alec he would take her out for dinner. But even that wasn’t a happy affair. Usually it would end in him coming up with some excuse as to why he had to leave early, or they would start fighting about something. This year though, there was no Alec. No more fighting, no more excuses, no more tears on her birthday. Even if she did nothing, she was happy...

Well, honestly, this case wasn't very interesting until the end. It was a little slow, but it had some amusing scenes throughout and that's what kept me hooked. (That and the fact that I need to write this full review....and Tim Roth...)

Gillian and Loker's case:
Now, at the beginning, I didn't fully understand what was going on. All I heard was blood, blood...and something about tainted blood. It was a good case, emotional on some level, but all around boring. Eli stayed in the lab, stating the obvious to the audience ("He's setting a base line" ect) and Gillian was all awesome asking the right...

One of my favorite episodes this season, by far. Last weeks episode I nearly died trying to keep up with my notes, and this one was a breeze. The 'A case' was interesting (something seemingly rare this season) and as was the 'B case'.
In short; I was impressed.

--

We begin with a Christmasy scene, and a crowd of people. Now since I live in Canada, I have no idea what Black Friday is except a suicide mission. People die trying to get into a store, for crying out loud...just walk into one any other day. Why go when theres thousands of people?!?!
Back to the case. A child slips on some ice, and her...

Amyway, at the end of each episode they keep annouceing that the brand new series 3 will start EARLY in the new year.
Now I know that the word "Early" can be very subjective, but I am hopeful. But heres the thing..I KNOW that in the states you tend to get news, tips etc earlier than we do here. So, I am BEGGING.....

The minete anyone gets wind of the start date, could you let me know PLEEEEEEZZZZZZZ

Many thnx

It was just past 10am when Lightman came storming into the office.

Ignoring all attempts by various members of staff to catch his attention, he made his way straight to the reception.

“I will be in my office – I DO NOT WANT to be disturbed by anyone, or anything for ANY reason.

Is that CLEARLY understood?”

His eyes were almost black with unconcealed anger as he spat out his directions to a slightly shocked, and visibly unnerved member of staff that was ‘holding the fort’ temporarily.

Ignoring the out held hand with his post Lightman had already turned away.

“Oh, but Dr Lightman..theres..DR…”...

Well here it is, folks! The day we've all been waiting for for months!! The season 2 Premire of Lie to Me!! Wow! That just flew by, didn't it?! One second I'm going into Lie to Me withdrawal, next I'm curled up into a ball laughing histarically on the floor because my Cable box cut out in the middle of this episode! So I'm sorry ahead of time if I miss any details in the middle, but from what I saw in the rest of the episode, I think I pieced it together.
Now let's get this party started!!

We open with an INTENCE scene, lot's of blood, bringing to mind a Jack the Ripper case, and so it begins....

I loved the inclusion of this picture in the episode.
I loved the inclusion of this picture in the episode.
I must admit, for the past 2 episodes, I haven't been very enthusiastic over the plot. We really haven't seen anything new, (that's to be expected from drama's), the only difference is what situation the characters are in, and in this case, it's a murderer plot circling around Cal.
He's bit into illegal underground fighting, and 80% of it is completley for buisness pourposes. Apparently. (How much do you want to bet we'll never hear about Cal's interest in this 'sport' again?)

But even with Cal caught in the middle of the mess, and everyone trying to cover up for him...I honestly didn't care....

There's an article in this month's Sky Magazine about the second half of Lie To Me, which it says is returning to Sky 1 in Late Spring. It's only a short piece, but I've copied it below.

Love Triangle for Dr Lightman?
When we last saw human behaviour expert Dr Cal Lightman, he was dealing with everything from death threats at a high school to trying to suss if a farmer's plan to blow up the US Treasury Department should be taken seriously. Thankfully, Dr Cal and co have survived their numerous ordeals, and Season Two of Lie To Me will resume in May - but this time it seems the troubles are of...

In the new TV Guide's preview of returning fall shows, the blurb for Lie to Me mentions that Cal will discover Emily has been drinking and sexually active, and there will be all kinds of issues with him having to deal with it.

Sounds to me like there will be ALOT to deal with this season.
Personally, I think that they should have left these kind of 'typical' teenage issues out of Emily's character and out of the SHOW...but I guess we'll have to see how it plays out.

I mean, Cal is a protective father, now just imagine him discovering this from his daughter...O.o

He's going to beat himelf up about it, and (Dare I say it) even HER if this goes to far. But THAT situation ever unfolding is FAR beyond Cal's character.

Why not just call this the Callian episode?
Why not just call this the Callian episode?
Last weeks episode got us back into the basic swing of things...and this week it reminded us of exactly how much emotion this show can carry. And this episode bared it all. Callian fans will be extatic with this episode, and while I still don't exactly support their ship...I certainly respect it a heck of a lot more.
This episode was all about Cal and Gillian's relationship, nothing more and nothing less. (Unless you count the explosions and guns as 'something more')

I won't run over the episode plot, but I will briefly talk about the key scenes in this episode.

We literally start things off with...

I know that this is completley random and out of the blue, but I did say that I would be writing about the one and only, so here it is!
Truth be told, before I go on with this, I have to say that Tim Roth is one of my favorite actors of all time, so at times I may be over glorifying him too much, but that's just me.

The whole point of this 'article' or 'opinion', as it were, is to let you see Cal Lightman as I see him, and show you how I take everything that he does and analyze it until I can understand his motives and personality. (I know, I have absolutly nothing else to do.)
I watch Lie to...

Wow. Just wow.

I cannot even begin to describe this episode because there's so much to describe.
Let's start with a plot overrun.
Eric Matheson, a man suspected of killing his wife, is brought in for questioning by the Lightman Group. Determined to prove his innocence, he takes drastic measures that put the team’s lives in danger in the “Honey” episode of LIE TO ME airing Monday, Oct. 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Ok. So that's the Episode Synopsis, but it's literally the plot withought delving into the characters emotional devlopment this episode!
