Wind Sprints picks up right where the previous one left off, with the Panthers in the middle of a heated game they desperately need to win to show that the team is capable of moving on without their star quarterback. Yet despite the courageous efforts of Matt, the Panthers still lose setting off a reaction from the residents of Dillon unwilling to accept defeat.
Coach Taylor praised Matt for his valiant effort; unfortunately, Matt was criticized by many of the residents referring to him as loser, and the reason why the team lost. But Coach Taylor had his fair share as well. Some of the locals decided to harass his daughter Julie, telling her that losing in this town in not an option.
The writers have done a tremendous job at showing the world these characters live in. From the first two episodes we got the idea, now in the third episode, we get the whole story, and it’s not all pretty. The passion Dillon has towards football is almost an obsession, but it never feels over the top or ridiculous because the writers ground it all in reality. There are small towns throughout America that feel this strongly towards just about any sport, this one just happens to be football.
Meanwhile, Lyla continues to deceive herself into thinking Jason is going to walk again, which causes the former star to snap at her, arguing that their life together – the one they planned – will never be. She later lets unleashes her emotions on Tim, and while you may have expected the two to kiss, understand that their moment came out of place of sadness not lust. It was handled well and truly touching to watch.
Buddy Garrity brings in a new quarterback to help with desperate team. Ray “Voodoo” Taylor is the new quarterback and certainly has the cocky attitude to back it up. His addition to the team should make for some nice dramatic moments, moments that the series seems efficient at creating with raw emotions.
Some of the those raw emotions comes from the best scene in the episode between Taylor and Tim. Standing in the rain, which provides a visceral poetic feel, Taylor shows his tough side mixed in with comforting words. He can see Tim is guilt stricken over Jason’s injury, and while he can sympathize with Tim, he must also snap him out of it because to solely blame himself, or rather, to blame himself at all is not helping anyone. Kyle Chandler, as I’ve said before, is one of the actors who deserve more attention. This is a great scene.
This episode may not have been as great as the previous two; however it was still a great episode all the same. Filled with touching and profound moments that best show the strengths of the series, which will hopefully continue on despite the low ratings, FNL is heading in the right direction with their characters and engaging story. Expect the next episode to be just as strong, and if not, better.
