As with Season 1, I’m looking back at the Official Stills for each Episode of Season 2; picking my favorites and writing down some of my thoughts. (Because I just can’t keep quiet, as you all know by now.)
Episode 2×11: Bullet + Pen (Still Photographer: Guy D’Alema)
For this episode, the Official Stills came in waves. There was a Press Release about Bruce McGill joining as a guest-star along with a first Still, roughly a month before the rest of the Stills was released via SpoilerTV. In between, there was another Still with Mac and Jack dressed as Santa. Getty Images later released two more stills of the interrogation scene with Lucas Till and Bruce McGill.
MY FAVORITE: It has to be one with Bruce McGill, of course. This was my favorite scene of the episode. The Runner-Up is the Santa Still on top, because you can’t see this photo without also wondering what shenanigans Mac and Jack are up to in this episode.
NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: Great Stills to choose from. Sadly, my favorite Still was only published on Getty Images and is not available in good quality without the watermark – at least not for free.
Episode 2×12: Mac + Jack (Still Photographer: Guy D’Alema)
For this episode we got 8 Stills via SpoilerTV. All of them feature Mac and Jack in their flashback of Afghanistan.
MY FAVORITE: It’s Mac + Swiss Army Knife!
NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: Several great Stills to choose from. Despite Mac + Jack being the center, it’s still a team havy episode, so I wonder: Was the rest of the cast disappointed that all Stills featured Mac and Jack and no one else?
Episode 2×13: CO2 Sensor + Tree Branch (Still Photographer: Guy D’Alema)
For Episode 2×13, SpoilerTV delivered 5 Official Stills.
MY FAVORITE: Despite not much action going on, this Still promises something exciting happening around them. And it’s always nice if the guest star is featured in the Official Stills as well.
NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: A Still with Jack at his High School Reunion to choose from would have been fun as well.
Episode 2×14: Mardi Gras Beads + Chair (Still Photographer: Guy D’Alema)
We got 7 Stills for this Episode. All are taken from the same location, 6 of them feature Amy Smart as Dawn.
MY FAVORITE: Amy and Jack in what looks like a potentially dangerous situation.
NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: No disappointement here, just curiosity. The colors look a bit different and some of the Stills look almost blurry.
Episode 2×15: Murdoc + Handcuffs (Still Photographer: Annette Brown)
For this episode, we got a first Still with the Press Release about Michael Des Barres being a Guest Star. They later released 4 additional Stills. Interestingly, this first Still never really came to fruition in the episode itself. Was it staged just for Promo or was the location part of a Deleted Scene?
MY FAVORITE: The one with Michael Des Barres, of course. TV Insider provided the First Look, but MDB later uploaded the full version of the photo.
NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: In my opinion, the BtS pictures for this episode were better than the Official Stills.
(More coming soon.)
