Good episode..I like the new place Finch picked out and when Shaw walked in it was like old times...and yes I like Shaw....was glad Reese was in it alot but not poor Fusco..hope that will change!!!!
Great recap and indeed Eph is whiny for a protagonist, which makes me wonder if his arc will be transformative and how many characters we enjoy will get killed in the process of Eph getting his poop together. Nora has shown more backbone than him and like Fet knew it was better to prepare for the next encounter after Setrakian's breakdown than to complain about it. Really, what did Eph want them to do besides let the old man take a nap? My heart broke all over the place for Nora but completely respect her what she did for her Mom. (Umm...Bolivar still wearing his wig? Ha ha!) Eph had better be up to the task when he comes face-to-face with Kelly. Now with Dutch and Fet making googoo eyes at each other. (Vampire Apocalypse Flirting 101) The trauma has only just begun for our band of strigoi killers. Oh and what the heck with those hooded strigoi?!?!
So what I'm getting from this is... same old same old. Honestly, nothing about this S2 sounds at all interesting to me. If we had gotten these things during the first season - A Kol flashback arc, Mikael & Esther's story, Tatia's origins - it would have made way more sense and the show would have kicked into a much better gear. That's what people were hoping to see in the first place. THE ORIGINALS. Bringing it in for S2 just seems like the writers are panicking. "Sorry we didn't give you the show we promised last year... Here have ALL the stuff you wanted! Please watch live!" Now that we've got Dr. Google running around, witches and hybrids coming our of our ears, and the show is splitting time with the Were-Princess Diaries, it all just seems like a gumbo with too many ingredients. Our beloved Originals are not going to get the time and attention they deserve with the show being as messy as it is right now.
They just compared the show to the Godfather... are they outta their minds?
LMAO THE GODFATHER really now last year it was Game of thrones honestly how big are those writers egos?! and your show couldn´t be further from the Godfather in every single way!
The most recent episode has definitely left some interesting questions heading toward the end of the season...not only in terms of Syd Snow but also how Gov. Campbell will react to Bohannon's actions against his authority. I teach a Western genre course at the college level and my students have enjoyed learning about and watching Hell on Wheels...they tend to connect immediately both the acting and to the strong production values. I also write about the Western genre at westernsreboot.com and if interested, I give a preview of the next episode (S4E10) at: http://westernsreboot.com/2014... Cheers,Chad
That must have been a hard decision but I respect her for putting her family first. I don't know how she manages to work on a one hour TV series with two children under age 4 no matter where the studio is! Hopefully something even better will come along.
Wow, what an episode and the massacre at Diosa showed that not showing something can be very powerful story telling too. The response of Nero and Jax conveyed so much, particularly Jax who obviously had feelings for Colette. Annabeth Gish put in a great performance and I look forward to seeing where they take her character. Her realization that Charming is not a good place was priceless. Don't know if Jury has tipped off the Chinese but he is going to get revenge sometime somehow. There was a lot going on but the pace was just right and it sort of made sense although I can do without seeing Juice naked again.Juice is getting crazier and no idea what he plans to do with gun. With still nine episodes who knows where the story is going. It will be interesting if Eglee wakes up and tells Unser what she saw. Unser is juggling a lot of things here.Despite the ending the absence of gratuitous violence was a welcome relief.
No, Elijah and Haley!
I MISS SHAY! WHY OH WHY DID THEY KILL HER OFF! Can the producers please bring her back in dream sequences! They only reason I watched the show was because of Kelly and Shay. :(
