OK the title of this seriously did seem like a joke. It's actually beckoning us to come and see what crazy thing just happened to them? I mean seriously, WHAT'S WITH THE TITLE? Glenn I know you read this, did you come up with that? Is it too late to change it to something... less lame?!
So much happened in this video, and yet so little. We see a confrontation, but it's not really a fight or anything. Kind of just standing there and a punch allegedly blocked though you can't actually tell for sure. We are told that the three are on the run (for the... forget it I stopped counted at 16th time) now, however we don't actually see them go. Just running back into the house with the Order right outside. We don't even know how they ran really. This video was way too short for its own good.
Future predicition: This time they run to Paul's house and take up residence there, someone gets kidnapped, Tachyon saves that person, house in question is discovered by the order thanks to spin art, our trio on the run turns into a quintet with Paul and Andrea in tow now. Then the go to someone else's house, perhaps random girl's, repeat, then on the run with six. Then they end up at, dare I say, Cassie's house, same thing happens, and then they all buy a van to accomodate their ever burgeoning numbers and go on to the next character's house until we reach episode 500 and everyone has stopped watching.

come on, hye. its not like daniel was ever a whizz with video titles himself. i bet if the title was HYEMEW! Watch This! ... you'd approve ... a better title would have been OH SHIT! but that would have gotten howls.
i thought the video was fine for what it was, i hope we get a new one tomorrow though (instead of two days) to keep the adrenalin flowing. managing the suspense of a chase through vlogs is a challenge.
Oh and look, for youtube they've included another example of sticking a regular picture of Bree looking at the camera right in the middle because of that yet-to-be-proven belief that pictures of her in the box get more views than the random middle scene.

All they want to do is hand her the f*cking gigantic check for $10,000,000. Publisher's clearinghouse has never had to work so hard awarding the prize. Bree, if you're reading this. Take the damn money, and it'll all be over. Do the commercial (maybe they'd have more luck if they stopped calling it a ceremony). Smile, wave, "I'm going to Disney World", the end.
I agree with milo- the videos better come fast and furious during this flight. This video was like someone holding chocolate just out of my reach. It better not have a pink center when I reach it.

Yes, the pacing just seemed all wrong with this. They needed to add some kind of post-confrontation vlog to the end to maintain some sense of "reality", as is it just seems incomplete. If they need more time in between vids to produce a self-sustaining ep, I wish they would take it. I know the ravenous phorumites don't like delays between vids, but it just seems like there should have been more to this... They could have filmed a postscript in the car before they uploaded it.
ETA: I just read the phorum thread and had some serious guffaws on the rampant phanwanking going on to try and explain this one. There is one "camp" that claims that OpA is just a faction of the Order and that possibly this may have been a benevolent Watcher . My comments still stand though, too short and incomplete.
Okay...I have settled down a little bit. Funny how such a short vid set me off so mcuh.
This vid adds more fuel to the fire CG has been trying to extinguish over the past couple of months. Way too much confusion over what we see, when we see it, who else sees it etc etc... These questions are exasperated whenever there is real confrontation between any of Bree and The Bookends and the Other forces of the Breeniverse.
Joans little bitch fight with the bad guy also begs the question Butch kept asking about the posse chasing them: "Who are those guys?"
Here is my synopsis of the brawl: Joan storms out the door breaking bad and with his best pimp walk. He throws what I am sure he thinks is a punch at the watcher guy. Watcher guy grabs Joans fist, in motion mind you, and pulls his arm down, probably in a twising motion. Watcher guy hardly moves nor looses a step He brushes Joan off like he would an annoying mosquito. Doesn't Joan own a pair of gloves? This kid was a boxer!!!!!?? Things have changed radically for our brave little soldier.
After being "punished" for being the young upstart he is, he turns and runs from the playground. (He is proabably thinking at this point "I'm going in and telling my Mom!" oops not an option sorry)
But valour has not completely left him.
He grabs Bree (or was he using her for a shield? - ok that's not nice) and continnues his hasty retreat.
Fleeing the altercation he stops and turns. This can only be for for one of two reasons: a) he is checking to see if the watcher guy is chasing him or b) he is looking for some sort of signal from the watcher guy; something that might indicate to him that he did an ok job PRETENDING to be a bad ass.
Keep in mind now that the order has had approximately 1,000,000 chances to terminate or capture all three of the new Mod Squad together or alone. If they want them WHAT is keeping them from taking them?
It just doesn't make ANY sense.
The Order either does not want them in "custody" or they are the most monumentally inept group of bad guys since the Watergate burglars.
Seeing ourselves as others see us would probably confirm our worst suspicions about them. - Franklin P. Adams

The "watcher" might have taken a punch to the face! Like impervious to pain or som'n. It's really hard to tell though. It could be that he grabs J's fist in mid air. I hope it's the former. When the watcher readies his retaliatory punch, Bree jumps in between them and the watcher hesitates and backs down.
Soooooo, it's looking like they don't want any harm to come to Bree as they are not willing to punch her in the face.
I think it would be WAY cooler if the watcher took an unflinching punch to the face. That would leave open this angle...They want Bree to perform the ceremony in order for her to become one of them, a being of extrordinary strength. Post ceremony Bree would gain this superhuman strength like the watcher, but she would also take on their tragic weakness...a sensitivity to light. That's why they wear sunglasses all the time (even inside..see Nikki B.) and also why the flash bomb took out the Order and didn't affect Bree.
Hye: "at yet-to-be-proven belief that pictures of her in the box get more views than the random middle scene."
"yet to be proven?" 562 K views in three days Hye, maybe there's something to it.....
i definitely agree. movies wouldn't spend money on movie posters unless they were important advertising. 562K is big, and its less than 3 full days since it was posted on youtube. i noted that the poster pic in this one also says LG15 on it.
... ehh ? .. new vid the ominously titled Yellow Snow, ok, a few more minutes for lunch then ....
Well when I said that, the video had juuust come out. I had no way of knowing there indeed would be a view explosion like this. Since that's the case then they should keep on doing it. Wow it's amazing what a pretty girl in the middle box will actually do, I'm stunned something so seemingly trivial worked THAT well
