The Nine Lives of Chloe King Review: "Girls Night Out"

by at .

Why did Chloe get a smile on her face when she met the new Mai girls? Haven't Valentina, Jasmine and Alek made it clear that everyone is out to get her? Any new acquaintance should be suspect until they prove themselves otherwise. How can the Uniter be so open and still say safe?

Did anyone really think that a simple night of dancing could possibly be just that? One of the sisters (honestly, I couldn't tell them apart) took a human into the bathroom and kissed him to death.

Nikki and Lilah

Amazingly he was spread out across three stalls, and not one girl sent out an alarm before they left. I've been to clubs, and I know how often girls to to the restroom. To think that not one hit the stalls all night is just not possible. I hope that last week's episode of reasonable plausible deniability wasn't just a fluke.

There are only so many things I can be expected to believe, and a three stall dead sprawled man is not one of them.

At least we know that the rumor is true; a Mai can kiss a human to death. But it seems like more than a simple kiss is needed to do the trick.

I can't get over the stupidity of Chloe in "Girls Night Out". That she just latched onto the sisters as if they were her new BFFs showed she hasn't learned a thing.

Brian gets more boring every episode, but he'll be sticking around to prove himself to his dad. Prove what, I don't know. At first I had great hope for them as a couple, but there is little about them to enjoy. All they do is have run ins and apologize to each other. Bah.

Where the heck was Alek? It is nice, I guess, to have a female dominated show on the air. Men and boys are definitely hard to come by on The Nine Lives of Chloe King, and there is a lot of girl on girl fight action to enjoy. That must be making somebody happy.

I liked that Amy didn't get upset when Chloe told her she put Paul up to the "night to remember" date. On other shows, the best friend would hold it against her and be mad that Paul couldn't come up with it on his own. The actual interaction was a good show of friendship.

Too bad Paul missed the mark. It did make me laugh to see him laying there, so sure of himself, while Amy practically died of embarrassment.

I am really trying to like this show. In an interview, Skyler Samuels said that by the time they were filming the later episodes it felt like a completely different show. Now I don't know whether that is good news or bad news, considering where we are in the season. What I do know is that with no Valentina and no Alek, I found the episode to be void most of its charm. How about you?

    This was my favorite episode so far. I was going to stop recroding it...but now I'll keep going. Looks like it's going my way and not with the general population. That's not good for anyone. Alek bugs me.

    Blah! Valentina or Alek should have been around to help keep Chloe safe especially since the rival Mai were going kill Chloe! Bad writing! The interactions between Chloe and her mom, Chloe and Amy and Paul are fine. I liked that Paul was genre-savy about the sisters.

    I missed Alek so much this episode , it wasn't the same without him. I agree Brian is just boring , I don't have anything against the actor but I just don't like him. Alek has charm and Chloe and Alek has a lot of chemistry together . I also like Valentine she is a very interesting character . I really hope that the rest of the episode have more Chalek and more Valentine , I like the Jasmine scenes she is too a character a would love to see more of.

    Definitely missing something without Alek in the lineup. And it makes no sense that Jasmine didn't ask Valentina for help with the Sisters From Sao Paulo. During each encounter with the two sisters I expected Valentina and/or Alek to at least make an appearance. I was glad to see that Chloe's mother finally acknowledged that Chloe has been acting differently recently and asked her about it. I was beginning to think she was the world's least observant mother. Paul's bedroom faux pas; hilarious!!! I was thinking that Paul was going to take Amy to some sort of social misfit gala. What happened was so much better. Brian's key; I was sure he was going to see a locked drawer in his father's desk that it would open.

    Totally agree with you, this episode was more boring than an ep of Charmed you know by heart and have for the past six years. Brian is def getting lamer and lamer, and an ep without Alek is seriously taking away my will to watch the next ep. Throughout the full forty minutes I was like "oh come on Alek....show up already..." and I hate that they go back on their storyline: So a mai can kiss a human, but has to follow certain rules or what? I mean seriously, it's what that guy in "murder by death" critizes in the end. holding back info and springing something you wrote impossible at first to become possible is bad writing.
    and the reason why I think that Aloe/Chloek is better than any Brian/chloe pairing is EXACTLY because Alek is such a jerk. He's damaged, so we forgive him, but Brian (who should be just as damaged with a murdered mother and a dysfunctional relationship with his dad)is normal. He's too normal for his own problems/character and that makes all of Brian seem surreal (and that in a show where fiction is the main theme and bends all the rules!). But if they're continuing with the Brian/chloe relationship, at least let them put more of Alek on the screen, cause otherwise this show wouldn't be watchable anymore...

    Definitely boring, and why did two Brazilian girls have American accents :)

    Well, i for one thought the episode EXTREMELY boring, like the article said, no valentina and no alek (especially no alek) was a major mistake. The only part that i really liked was the fight scene and the paul & amy incident (which was HILARIOUS). Alek and chloe belong together, they have a lot more chemistry, he truly cares about her and strives to protect her from harm, he's charming, good looking and a mai descendant. Meanwhile, the "forbidden love" thing with chloe and brian should at least be a bit more interesting, but it isn't. And i hope the producers know that if Alek and Chloe don't end up together, then they will definitely see a ginormous drop in viewers.
