As I predicted, I'm really enjoying Jeff Branson as the new Shayne on GL. The mystery surrounding Shayne's war experience is intriguing and Branson has done an amazing job of showing his struggle, so I can't wait until more tidbits are revealed. Today, viewers learned that a land mine was responsible for his leg injuries and we go another big hint about his recent past when he mentioned a woman (a love lost in the war, perhaps?). I'm dying to know what else is making this elusive dude so cranky, and can't wait until he returns to Springfield and finally mixes and mingles with the rest of the town. Thus far, the dynamic between Shayne and Dinah is fantastic (how great was it when he said his name was Travis Bickle and Dinah didn't clue in that the name is Robert DeNiro's character in Taxi Driver?!). Their connection in Germany will fuel more close encounters in the near future, and it's certain rustle up new emotions. I'm keeping a close eye on these two. "ShayNah," anyone?
