Here are just some of the callbacks that caught my attention.
The last time I saw this stock shot meant to reflect the skyline of downtown Denver was the Pilot. While clearly serving as a transition, the visual callbacks are just as important as any others might be!
The Pilot was also the first time we got introduced to Oliver and his Yoo Hoo's, and his need for them in times of distress. As you saw, Oliver was in need of one in From The Heart on similar grounds.
This was perhaps the realization that started it all. Anyone think Dale looked familiar? Maybe it's because she is the same actress (Emilie Ullerup) who played Marie in Soulmates---her hair color changed from blonde to red!
The Future Me
"With friends like you, I feel like I won already."
"Just being there together, I felt like I already won."
One of these is the line Rita spoke to Norman, Shane and Oliver right before she took the stage for the local branch competition of the Miss Special Delivery pageant. The other are actually Ryan's sentiments about Maddie and joining the debate team in From The Heart! Interesting how they seem to mirror each other both in context and content.
See you tomorrow for Part II!
