Alas, I have no insider knowledge about what they have in mind for the coming season. It would be cool, though, wouldn't it?
I think Meisner's being with the Resistance was always a matter of convenience with him, and that his goals didn't necessarily coincide with theirs. It was my opinion that part of Meisner's reasons for helping and protecting Adalind and Diana had to do with a subconscious association with the love that he lost at the hands of the Royals. Frankly, I think that Meisner may very well have been lying to Renard about not knowing Diana's whereabouts because the Resistance had not told him. I find it far more likely that Meisner himself spirited her away and has her squirreled somewhere safe. We shall see.
Yep, we're hilarious! :-D
One thing I've noted for quite awhile is that Adalind is often a tool, being used and manipulated by other people for their own ends. Her mother, Renard, Eric, Viktor, the Gypsy Queen, Frau Pech. To make matters worse, when Adalind *does* try to take control, things have a tendency to get wildly out of hand (as with Juliette and the Cat Scratch of Doom). One of the reasons I liked Adalind with Meisner was that Meisner was trying to *protect* Adalind and Diana, not use them. He has no past angst issues with Adalind, like Nick does.
As I understand it, a lot of their "German" pronunciation is hilariously bad. Then again, maybe they live in an alternate reality where they really ARE pronouncing it correctly! :-D
I actually didn't recognize Madeline Zima, since I haven't ever watched any episodes of Heroes or Californication. Perhaps if I had, I would feel the same way you do! Though you do make a good point about the potential overuse of "the girl is really the killer" twist.
I think one thing that has to happen is for Adalind to acknowledge and express genuine remorse for the incredibly horrible things she's done to Nick and everyone around him, *especially* her role in what happened to Juliette. Until that happens, I don't see any possible way that Nick can feel any sort of trust for her. Also, Adalind has to stop getting hit by the Stupid Stick all the time - for someone so smart, she does some incredibly dumb things. (It's been a theory of mine that one reason Renard sent her after Aunt Marie in the first episode was to get Adalind killed...)
I think that Juliette had the potential to be so much more than she ultimately was; I found it disappointing that the writers took her the way they did.
One thing I forgot to mention in my review above: that intriguing little tidbit Adalind dropped about her father, who apparently "took off" when she was four years old. Given the type of person Adalind's mother Catherine was, I see a good chance that Dear Old Dad was either driven away... or his body will never be found. Seriously, Catherine might well have turned him into spell components! Also, this unanswered question: was Adalind's father a Zauberbiest or a human?
I agree that it's nice not to be able to predict every move the writers make. That would be just so boring!
