Hellcats Review: "Before I Was Caught"

at . Comments

Finally. This is the Hellcats I have been waiting for all season.

After a so-so episode last week, the freshman series returned with an installment filled with scandals, surprises, and secrets. Let’s discuss.

Marti on Hellcats

Hello Emily! Girl knows how to make an entrance. Red’s ex-wife showed up on the scene and wasted no time making her ex and Vanessa uncomfortable.

I love these two together and having Emily back in the picture can only make for some more drama. I wouldn’t mind seeing how the couple’s relationship folded out years ago. Vanessa is right though, Em wants to bury them.

Alice was back with her attitude and gut punching one liners and it felt good. Although the caring Alice is sweet, we can not lose the resident mean girl. Lewis and her seem to have found their way back to a friendly point. Am I sensing a hook up before season’s end?

The Honor Court situation brought together most of the key characters, but honestly, I could have done without it. Sure, it is nice seeing Marti in lawyer mode and Savannah and Lewis’ friendship. But nothing happened. I mean nothing. The possible consequences were to lose two of the best members; the outcome - nothing of importance.

The only good thing about it? Welcoming back Julian Parrish.

Hellcats went ahead and pulled a Vampire Diaries. "Before I Was Caught” was a solid hour with it’s best scene starting at the very end of the episode. Julian and Marti finally gave into their flirting and hooked up. This was HOT! Mulian? Jarti?

Whatever it is, I don’t care. I wan’t more of it. This pairing may be the first real chemistry between a couple on the show. 

Some side notes...

  • The new Athletic Director means business. Things are not looking so good for Red Raymond right now.
  • The benefit performance - not the best of the season, possibly the worst. It was super weird, right?
  • Hellcats has not been renewed for a second season yet. If you want that to happen, make sure you check out the final episodes of the season!

So what did you think, TV Fanatics? Excited about Marti & Julian? Miss Wanda tonight? Sound off and let us know what you thought of “Before I Was Caught."

I like Julien and Marti together, but that kiss was not hot at all. It lacked all urgence and passion. Julien improved it a bit towards the end by grabbing her waist, but come on. My parents got a divorce because of another person, so unfortunately I'm kind of rooting for Emily to kick the couple's butt.


I don't watch the show regularly and I only tuned in because Gale Harold is in it (been in love with him since QAF). The few eps I have seen, Julian and Marti def flirting, especially recently. They were HOT on this episode. But Gale Harold is already signed on to Secret Circle which is likely to get picked up as a new series on CW in the fall.


Adele sings the last song in this episode from her 1st album 19.


what the name of the songs in this episode?
the last music in last scene,to make you feel my love who sings?
and how is the name and who sings the song played during marti and julian in restaurant?


No so sure about the Julian and Marti kiss. But loved that Dan didn't tell Marti about Savannah. Love Red and Vanessa as a couple too, Emily really is going to make it interesting.


I liked the kiss between Julian and Marti but the student/teacher thing has already been done. However, I am interested in seeing what happens next. The highlight of this episode for me obviously was the Red & Vanessa storyline. Seeing them on the screen is always a treat for me, they have the best chemistry on Hellcats. I'm excited because this storyline with Red's ex-wife means more screen time for my favorite pair and seems to promise a lot of good drama. By the way, I like reading your reviews Courtney Morrison.


I love Dan and Savanah! Keep them together, please!


personally, i didnt find the julian and marti kiss hot..maybe cause I dont like them together that way..i mean think of vampire diaries damon and katherine..now that's hot! haha sorry, had to go there! nono or marti and dan..those were cool..


Julian isn't married. Rremember when she woke him up to bail Lewis out? If there'd been a wife there, we'd definitel have heard about it. And he doesn't seem to be permanent faculty, only an adjunct, teaching a seminar. So he's not at the moment attached to the university.


I loved the episode. I think Marti and Julian make a hot couple! Their Kiss was hot and I want to see more! He is no longer her professor and they're both legal..I see no problem with the relationship. Dan is such a cutie :)
