I don't want to be melodramatic or come across as an actual crazy person by saying this, but it's more than a little bit true (both the following statement and that I am melodramatic and an actual crazy person): my stomach was in knots anticipating Robin's revelation that she's alive.
Would the show do it justice? This was a very real concern, as the show's execution of big ideas is often lacking/bad. And Robin's reunion with her parents was so wonderfully done, what if all of their creativity went to that and Robin's dramatic reveal to Patrick and Mac and the rest of town happened entirely offscreen and was recapped in a scroll at the bottom of the screen. "ROBIN IS ALIVE, PATRICK WAS LIKE WHAT? ANYWAY, BACK TO SONNY..."
What if the show did it justice, or at least tried to, and I hated it? This was possibly an even realer concern, as I hate most things, and I couldn't bear the thought of it.
Happily--that doesn't even do it justice. Delightfully? Thrillingly? Wonderfully? Amazingly?--it was perfect. Perfect. PERFECT. The last minute of today's show just impeccable. And happy making. And wonderful.
