Hearts on fire
20 March 2013 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty interesting episode, serving perfectly well as the prelude for the events that take place in the following chapter "Dye! Dye! My Darling" and the movie "Is It Fall Yet?" being the starting point of a serious conflict between Daria and her best friend Jane. While it was hinted on some previous episodes that perhaps Tom had some sort of attraction for Daria (Like for example, at the end of "I Loathe a Parade") and that Tom and Jane relationship wasn't going very well ("Mart of Darkness") here is pretty clear that Tom had deeper feelings for her.

The contrast of the comical tone of the subplot dealing with the Morgendorffer family having to stay in a hotel (After Jake burns accidentally the house) with the seriousness of the main plot of this chapter is quite well done and effective.

I liked a lot the last scene of this episode, with Daria silently mulling over her feelings about Tom while her family argues. It is one of the most fascinating and beautiful scenes in the entire series, and yet very little has been said about it.

I guess that the more dramatic events from the following episodes somewhat overshadowed "Fire!"…And that's a shame, considering how good this chapter was.
