I laughed at first, while Andy was being inundated with knowledge by eht nameriF, trying to imagine what was going through his head. But, as the scene wore on I couldn't believe how brilliant it was. When he returned to the earthly realm all revitalized and in control . . . wow! Can't wait to see what he has to say to Hawk, Truman, Bobby and Lucy! It's really cool to have characters like his to have such important roles this season.
I loved seeing Andy suddenly take the lead, as though transformed by his experience. He and the Fireman are such great visual counterparts too. Harry Goaz plays the encounter with a suddenly serious face (rather than a wtf is going on look) which makes the scene so strong!
Obviously we get shown a lot of things we have seen before, but seeing Laura with the angels really made me think more about how we are only seeing her prom picture. I feel as if there is a distinction being made between Laura at a specific moment in her life and Laura before and after that moment. As though there was one pure moment for her. Despite everything she was suffering and involved in, the moment of that picture was purely good for her, if only for a moment.
The look on Bobby's face as they left Jack Rabbit's place was priceless, "What the hell is going on?"
Didn't it also feel like he was confused that he had not been given the profound experience. I don't think he knew what Andy had gone through but I do think that he knew something powerful had happened and he hadn't really been the centre of it.
