Once Upon a Time Round Table: Who is Lily?

The fact that the sorcerer's apprentice told the author off for what "he did to Malificent's baby" shows how out of character it was for snow and charming... So the author manipulated that situation, which is why I am yet to see Snow and Charming as villains. Also Golds plans disturb me because he rubbed his heart when he was talking to Belle. And as the next episode is called 'The heart of gold' I am hoping that Rumple is not planning on stealing Emma's heart of gold and replacing it with his "dark heart"

I don't know if we can accept the view that Grace will stay away from Simon. Stephanie Szostak, at this point, probably doesn't know what will happen in the entire second season. Sean Jablonski implies in his twitter account that they wrote the first episode and that he had to go to Las Vegas for inspiration. In Szostak's interview, she expresses her belief that Grace should stay away from Simon but that might not be what the writers want to do in season two. What I found interesting is that Szostak mentioned that she heard that season two will "delve deeper into the world of escorts". If Simon decided to give up being an escort, why is that storyline being followed. Does Simon go back to escorting rather than turning to his family for help? Does Neil go back to escorting when he and Grace separate? Does any other member enter into the world of escorting? Grace? Stephanie? What I also found interesting is that Szostak predicts that season two will have big story twists and exciting surprises? What could they be? Here is one of my crazy suggestions for a twist. When Neil went to his first party with Adriana, he turned away from a woman who appeared interested in him (she was a brunette and wearing a mask). At the time, I thought that the woman kind of looked like Stephanie. Now that would be a big surprise if we find out that the woman was Stephanie and that she has ties to people in that social group and that she knew that Neil was the person that she was talking to at the party!

I am terribly sad.
the writers, the reviewer and clearly some fans have absolutely no idea of what a relationship is about.
Here again we have both Castle and Beckett unable to talk about basic issues. Castle has been working with her for over 6 years and living with her for over 3 years yey has has no idea about his wife. why is he making immature bets when he is now approaching 50. He isn't twenty! Isn't there anyone out there who is married and simply gets embarrassed by what is portrayed as a married couple. This series now is simply a fairy tale and should be treated as such.
Since I am in a grouchy mood a couple more snafus.
Alexis must be one dumb gal is she is studying such basic concepts. In OZ we do that in first year. Can we simply admit Beckett is no intellectual giant and she could not have been a Judge let alone on the Supreme court.
A pity this writer never saw for better or worse because Beckett certainly wasn't ambitious there but oh dear Marlowe forgot about that again. Dancing in the shower was absurd. It clearly wasn't Caskett. A shower is far too smal to dance in. If you are going to do anything you have sex in there. If you are going to dance you dance in the room. you wouldn't dance to that sonf either. you would dance to a slow song.
A Coltrane gal liking a Sinatra song? what next taylor swift? I am afraid to say this show now is gone. It was a great show. Was being the operative word.

Scandal Round Table: Cyrus Calls a Truce

I really wish this site would get new round table panelists for Scandal. There really is no analysis being done of the show and they can't get names and/or scenes correct. Cyrus married James NOT David Rosen. Such a basic mistake shows the lack of real interest in the show. I guess we should be grateful they were not talking about Mellie and Jake (useless characters) as usual. This episode that was well done and actually pretty good. It was a slower pace which was appropriate for the flashbacks. A lot of social issues were touched on - gay rights, AIDS in the 80s, gay conversion camps, Cyrus' political marriage to run for office and fear of AIDS, Cyrus living on the down low after marriage, Sally's show on Faux News (haha The Liberty Report), what is marriage (Cyrus and his wife, Cyrus and James, Cyrus and Michael, Mellie and Fitz, Fitz and Olivia), separation of
Church and State analogies, horrible parenting, etc. But the panelists did not discuss any of these issues. BTW Olivia's flashback to Vermont was brought on by Cyrus' marriage to Michael. It took her back to his second marriage to James where she received the heirloom ring, reminded her of how much she loves Fitz and feels connected to him by wearing the ring. It had nothing to do with them being together currently. Fitz is giving her space to recover from being kidnapped and Olivia is trying to move forward with her life.

Secrets and Lies Season 1 Episode 6 Review: The Confession

You know who I think it is, and frankly I hope I'm wrong. Ben's younger daughter Abby. I'm picturing she and Tom maybe out goofing around in the evening, Abby has borrowed her Dad's flashlight, something happens, they get into some kind of disagreement or altercation, and sadly Abby hits Tom with the flashlight and kills him. Again, I hope I'm wrong, but she's almost overly sweet, I can't help but think we're going to get hit in the head at the finale. We shall see.

Once Upon a Time Round Table: Who is Lily?

-What Gold was referring to when he said he was changing-
I thought it was pretty clear that was progress he had made in being "good" was about to get wiped away. He's softened enough to fall in love with Belle, and even sacrifice himself for everyone else, but I think the things he sees himself doing to get his happy ending may undo all that. His heart may become so dark that he no longer gives a damn about Belle, and I think he realizes that. After all, what else would Rumple acknowledge that could actually keep him from Belle, but himself?
-Evil Snow/Charming-
Yeah, what they did was bad, but I had to wonder how much of it was really their doing. When the Sorcerer confronts the Author, he said something like "How dare you make me do that to that child", and the Author replies that it made for a better story. If the Author is controlling the Sorcerer, and making him perform dark deeds for a better story, who's to that Snow and Charming aren't being similarly controlled? Really, the Author storyline is bringing up an age old question: Are our fates predetermined, or do we have free will? It should be interesting to watch the characters struggle with that question in relation to their own deeds.

The Americans: Renewed for Season 4!

Excellent news! Why doesn't anyone from TV Fanatic review this show? I was a little disappointed when you guys only reviewed the first episode of the season.

Did anyone else notice from the previews for Episode 18 this week that it looks like Jake is living or using the apartment across from Olivia's to stalk her and keeps surveillance on her. Creepy!
