Face of Yesterday / Closer Than a Brother

Post by cowgirl » Wed Nov 01, 2017 8:07 am

I thought Face of Yesterday was a great episode and a great Lucas & Micah moment. I wondered how Face of Yesterday would hold up next to Closer than a Brother. What say you?

Wow Cowgirl....now this one is almost an exact tie for me. I would have to say Face of Yesterday narrowly edges out Closer than a Brother. Two of my most favorites.

In Face of Yesterday you see the agony in Lucas character and he does an almost three minute dialogue at the ranch leaning over the chest. and the camera close-ups of Lucas was fantastic. Chuck was born to act! You see the concern and agony of Micah worrying about Lucas and trying to console him. And of course when Lucas was going to see the Mother.....Micah asks to go along

In Closer than a Brother you see the love the two have for each other. The pain of Lucas backing off, the tears in Lucas eyes at the ranch when he tells Micah he cannot help him this time. But Lucas is still on the ready in town.....When Micah asks about Lucas being in town after the confrontation Lucas says.... "I figure he was even money to kill you. I didn't plan for him to walk away from it."

In Closer than a Brother Lucas 'had to stay out of it' and let Micah do it on his own. In Face of Yesterday Lucas says before the gunfight.....'stay outta this Micah' so they were like exact opposites. Lucas and Micah were always protecting each other. and in the end the rifle either did the talking or it was in the ready. Gosh I just love the brotherhood of Lucas and Micah.

Oh Boy ~ Two really great episodes! Eenie Meenie Miney Mo :dontknow:

OK ~ I gotta go with "Face Of Yesterday" even though I cried during both episodes. :foxes_440:

Luv the Father/Son interaction between Lucas and Micah. :)

I gotta agree with you Dudettes. When I set this poll up I knew this would be hard to choose.

They are both very touching episodes. My heart goes out to Lucas & Micah both. Don't cha' just want to hug them?
