12 Monkeys Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Pilot

I Didn't even know this was based on a French short film or that there was a movie as well. I just thought the name was weird and didn't investigate lol. I chose to watch other stuff. Well I am here now !

I can see what Carissa means. Though why would they do that since Elizabeth is trying to kill the main character. A character we care about or soon will use to. Rooting for her could be difficult as the show is not centered around her. She is the enemy. We'll see though. If I don't give up before the finale...

There will be. Especially since I have a feeling he's being dragged into the pagan world more with this.

Terri, I'm sorry lol. Been living in England for
too long in my opinion. That saying makes laugh evertime.

No, Aethelwulf ruled and his son Aethelstan was made King of Kent as sub-king but died before his father so he wasn't his successor.
The nobles can think what they want but he is Egbert's only heir, so he can't really be punished like that. At least that's how I see it. He did yell at him though.

I was so not surprised by Egbert's "change of heart", but as you Henry, I was shocked by its execution. The way they murdered those Northmen, it was horrible. Aethelwulf definitely took his anger out on them. I too doubt Ragnar will fall for it. After all, Egbert and him are quite similar. Nonetheless, the slaughter of his people will make him seek revenge perhaps, mostly for Egbert to have played him.
Judith being pregnant with Athelstan's child. Oh boy. That is more trouble than we need.
Ragnar & co's return to Kattegat was not pretty. Poor Rollo found out about Siggy and blamed himself. Bjorn and him fighting was hard to watch. The man wanted to FEEL the blame.
Ragnar was quick to see things were not as he left them. Aslaug so screwed up and Ragnar questioning her about Harbard was interesting.
I was glad Helga told Floki. But Floki is in a zone right now, his hate for Athelstan is growing stronger. And even when he told Ragnar about Harbard and Aslaug, it became more apparent that Ragnar really doesn't listen to him anymore.
As to Lagertha, it was about time she came home. I didn't like the way it went down as she tried to get Kalf talking but was cut off by Ragnar which was disrespectful She was already trying to regain her earldom and him doing that kinda humiliated her in front of her people. That being said, he probably has a plan. He probably can tell the guy is up to no good. Now the seer's vision is not good. Plus when Athelstan described Paris, the mention of the marbled city reminded me of Lagertha's future as told by the seer. Which is already happening with the farmer's massacre in Wessex. Man this is not good !!!

Not a king. He becomes Duke of Normandy. Among his descendants however was a king. Though the dates don't match, so maybe, maybe not. He had a great destiny for sure though.

He can't get rid of his son. Historically, Aethelwulf ruled after his father's death.

Grimm Season 4 Episode 14 Review: Bad Luck

I agree. I should have mentioned that while Nicks reaction disappointed me, Juliette's forceful approach had me cringe. It was really uncomfortable to watch... You're right. By the time he got back she was probably all resentment and all. With the way he left things, it is understandable though. And with no contact all day too after that type of revelation, most likely made things worse.. Oh well. I really REALLY hope that whoever wrote the next episode did a better job. Though from there it could go downhill too.
Adalind's case to me is almost a done deal. That character needs to be redeemed soon otherwise it'll be time for some heads to roll !
Man that Elizabeth/Kelly meeting needs to happen ASAP lol !
