At least these were normal "Kidnap and Eat the Kidnapped Victims" Tentacle Monsters not a more dangerous Hentai Tentacle Monster <grin>.
"Okay, so that wasn't the episode that was actually supposed to air tonight, but I can't fault CBS for making the respectful decision to shuffle the order around." For those who are unaware of the reason for the order swap, the originally scheduled episode involves bombs and major death numbers, Given the events in Paris France, the episode was pulled/moved as is the usual decision when a scheduled plot line (such as a mass school shooting) intersects with a real world occurrence of that event just prior to the scheduled air date. Some times when the event is part of a story arc, a notice explaining the pulling is aired at the start of the replacement (some times a rerun) episode.
"Did anyone else get the impression that Jane was wiping her tattoos at the end? My jaw hit the floor, then I realized I wasn't even in the same zip code as correct." She had stated when she came out in that dress that he put on makeup to cover them (A real standard practice when an actor/actress has them but is playing a role where they should not appear). What was shown at the end was her removing the makeup on her neck to expose the tattoos there.
In theory Forever was not canceled since it aired all its episodes. It was just not renewed for another season. There is a slight difference between the 2 situations. There is also type of "cancellation" situation where there is a reduction in the number of episodes that are ordered
Jim commented "If you've ever read "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex (by Larry Niven)" the physics involved with a human/kyptonian relationship could be troublesome." I have read this article by Niven (one of a number he wrote looking at the implications of SciFi concepts) and agree that it was a fun idea. In fact I was at a SciFi convention where a studio rep was putting on a talk about a (then) forthcoming Superman movie which would address the issue of Superman having sex with Lois and he started his talk saying that they were aware of the article and took it into consideration in writing the plot. Many of the points Niven raised about are also applicable (with modifications) for a Supergirl/Human encounter. While the super speed sperm ejection is not a problem, other muscle contraction issues are. A certain male body part is at risk of being crushed in a sexual encounter. Niven suggested a Kyptonite chastity belt (or something - I forget) for when that have sex and for the next 9 months after impregnation until the fetus is delivered. In Supergirl's case just have sex in the Kryptonite Training room to overcome her strength and involuntary muscle contractions <g> .
Jim commented "I'm kind of curious why Lord said Superman saved him and then turned around and said "twice in two days" to Supergirl. Clearly he's giving her proper credit in person, why not the press?" You have to remember his original sound bite comment from the pilot (repeated in this episode's "Previously On ..." clips). Having said what he did about Supergirl, having to admit to the press that he owes his life to her might not play well. OTOH: He is honest enough to privately thank her.
The writers are still goofing off by concentrating on Emma's actions (such as the ripping out of Violet's heart and its effect when discovered while ignoring the motivation and results of these actions. This time she mentions it to Merlin and complains about doing it yet does not bother to mention that it was needed to allow her to transform him back from Tree to Human. Ignoring this reason is worse IMO than not bothering to see the rest of the Dream Catcher video since she had the chance to justify her action and the writers blew it by not allowing her to do so.
Osgood is almost definately the Human one of the original pair (IOW: It was the Zygon who was killed by the Mistress). Otherwise we end up with no Human Osgoods and two Zygons to represent the agreement.
"It was also pretty obvious that sweet old lady Betty would turn out to be Wesen, too". Her secret was blown by last week's "Next On" Clips. Her Wesen form was shown there (in the "Its Too Late" clip). I think the clip stated with her as Human before doing the Wesen change.
"Adalind outright stated that she no longer wanted to be a Hexenbiest anymore, which is certainly a switch given all the shenanigans she went through to get her 'Biest back." She had a reason/need to regain her powers then. She does not now and thus has a reason to want to stay "Human".
