Oh I could tell it was real. After she said the "not yet", oh yeah...

Great episode ! Them kisses though. Well well. The build-up between Clarke and Lexa was well done. I saw that kiss coming miles away ! I don't think Clarke is playing with Lexa's feelings that way. Yes she set up that ultimatum but to protect Octavia. The kiss was quite long. So we'll see where that leads.
Raven and Wick had to happen. And in typical Raven fashion she shut him out. I was so like "That's so Raven" you know ! I like Wick, he's cool. Raven rocks, so yeah, definitely a good hook up. Now, she needs to move on. Finn is dead.
My gosh Bellamy had my heart in a state ! I so hated the fact that they jammed his signal ! And I swear I thought he had burned a bit when he was in the ventilating system. Though it all came together and the acid fog has been destroyed ! YES ! Let us rejoice in this vicoty, for now. Though how did he send out the flare ? Oh well.
I'm surprised you didn't mention the city of light journey Amanda. But oh well, I think they'll find it. Will it be what they expect/hope for ? Good question.
Again, the exchange between Indra and Octavia would have made a perfect quote ! Yes I understand Octavia's disgust but as Indra so well put " That's war". And that war cry felt more like Ocatavia letting out her frustration and anger too lol.
Next week, man please don;t kill the important characters. That's all...

I remember that gorilla episode. And Lexa being attracted to Clarke was actually mentioned. But no one really brought it up much afterwards. After this episode though, it is clear the feelings are there. Now though, does Clarke reciprocate ? Yes the kiss was longer than required, but she is emotionally troubled (Finn's death) and indeed, with the upcoming war, doesn't have time to dwell on those feelings. Post battle should be interesting. But man I was shipping Bellarke !

What a brilliant tv show ! ABC would be fools not to renew it ! It was amazing. And one of the reviewer is right : costumes, script, hair(lol), music , all of it was great. The finale didn't disappoint one bit. I thought Dottie was dead and was as shocked as Peggy to see that she survived. Them black widows are hard to kill ! Sousa nailed it with the earplugs. Heck, I was saying that too, since the doc's words are his weapon so better off not being able to hear them. And Agent Sousa knew to put his gun at Agent Thompson since the doc pointed it out, so it figured out what he had to pretend to do. That gas though, what a weapon ! Howard's genius is DANGEROUS !
Peggy trying to reason with Howard was heart wrenching. Him trying to find Steve and all... But I am glad Jarvis didn't get to shoot him down.
And I didn't see Thompson as being a jerk taking credit for the whole thing. That's what is expected of him. You think Dooley would have done differently ? Nah. And Thompson didn't act like a jerk as he probably would have done at the beginning of the show. Angie's reactions to that house was priceless. Hilarious. But more emotional was Jarvis giving Peggy Steve's blood. And her pouring it into the river was really sad. But it had to be done. I am rooting for Peggy and Sousa. That smile she had when he asked her out was sweet. He's such a cutie.
NOW, Doc in prison was creepy. That mask was so Hannibal-esk ! And That Hydra scientist, typical Marvel. It does explain a lot though in the future. Them 2 minds together... CREEPY !
I am very sad to see Marvel's Agent Carter go, and honestly hope the show will come back.

Vikings Season 3 Episode 1 Review: Mercenary

Loved the season premiere. Finally watched Vikings and love it !. Ragnar and Athelstan's bromance still does it for me and I'm glad it's still strong. But, too many want the "tiny viking" as you call him Henry. That nickname made me laugh in your previous reviews. King Egbert was very happy to see him again. And Athelstan translating and everyone speaking their language was absolutely brilliant !
I was charmed by Kalf's looks but was not surprised when he turned out to be a snake in the grass. Betrayals are way too easy to come by so it doesn't even shock anymore. Though I do want someone for Lagertha other than Ragnar to treat her right. She cannot have children, Bjorn is grown up. It's a little bit lonely. Grandma Lagertha maybe ? That opening was not a good omen... But King Egbert has his eye on her already. I wonder if she will give in to him.. The exchange between her, Athelstan and the King was priceless.
Glad to see Rollo has recovered. Floki is still cray-cray. Is rant about happiness was disturbing. Poor Helga, yup she's too good for him !
Bjorn and Thorunn were cute, but what he did on the battlefield was not right. And I am sure Ragnar will point that out to him. If she wants to be/is a shieldmaiden, she has a duty, to fight. That is not honorable if she doesn't fulfill that while in the battlefield even when pregnant. She wanted to come.
So the princess' uncle is dead. But her reaction was strange. I wonder what will happen next. The preview looked good though.

Vikings Season 3 Episode 1 Review: Mercenary

That baby did a number on him. He cannot even look at him. Heck, he can't even look at Aslaug without disgust (too strong a word ?). Baby-machine doesn't do it for him no more ugh ? I commend Aslaug for standing her ground. Ivar will turn out to be a briliiant viking anyways !

Vikings Season 3 Episode 1 Review: Mercenary

her reaction definitely was not right. Even Ragnar saw it... What the heck is all this... You wanna tell me that ALL the mercenaries left behind were killed ?! Not one or a few survived. That doesn't feel right already. And Ragnar was right, them coming back and providing more mercenaries was not part of the deal. They fulfilled that before they left. Something is up.

Vikings Review: All Hail King Ragnar

Just finished watching both seasons !!! I read all your reviews, found many similarities and what I thought and felt about certain episodes, character. So wish I'd started watching this show earlier, would have loved commenting on a few things and have some cool debates ! That finale !!! OMG ! Floki had me sooo worried. I couldn't possibly see how/why he flipped. But that plan... wow ! What a massive plot. SO everything was calculated ?! I was a bit disappointed we didn't get to see when/how it came together. But what a finale ! Was sooo glad Floki was not a traitor ! Because I was not happy with him at all. Not one bit. HEck, proves he played his part very well !
BTW, the girl's name is Thorunn. I could definitely hear Bjorn say "t" instead of "p" sound.

Took me some time to comment. But what an episode this was ! Viola and Cicely, FIYAAA !!! As soon as momma stepped I knew we were gonna be in for a treat (some of her lines had me ROARING, cracking up, it was bad). But I had no idea it would mean her revealing things, incriminating things to Ana Mae (lol). When she asked Annalise if she had killed Sam, I honestly thought she'd tell her... And then later after all the secrets, anger were spilled (damn that childhood...rough), her mom told she had killed her uncle. So yes, she knew what had happened and took care of things, protected her children. And btw, Annalise got a brother and sister ? Interesting.
Now the case was, well, bumpy. Poor Bonnie, that slip of the tongue was not looking good. Though in the end, she prevailed. Thanks the Connor's hacker lol. At that point, I knew he'd have to introduce him to the gang. And boy, that was fun. LOved their scene when they went home afterwards.
What was not fun was Rebecca. What a lying piece of a woman. From the first episode, I was disappointed Wes through it all away for a woman(though I used a different word). Now, turns out, Rudy had an OD, probably off some drugs she sold him and more, they were probably both on that roof when Lyla died.
And the cherry on top, she is tracking Wes's movements and found out he went to the clinic. Did she do it ?! I honestly ruled her out. And always said it must be someone we have never seen before. That could be Rudy. But something about her... Laurel if in the know could probably help Wes find out the truth. They did make a nice couple LOL.
Prom Queen was really pushing it. Going to Nate's trial, SERIOUSLY ! Though, it seems to have hurt Annalise to incriminate him, she is trying to help him out. What was that number she gave him ? She cannot represent him anyways... By the end of that episode, I didn't know what to do, I could not breathe ! I will say this regarding the finale, I think I will need to call 911 before watching it coz I know my heart is gonna take a blow. It's going to be SICK !

Just finished watching the first 7 episodes ! What a ride ! Cookie gurl ! SHE IS KILLIN IT ! Love her ! Taraji and Terrence, what a pair. The chemistry is superb. The music.... I love Jamal's voice. Hakeem needs to flippin grow up already. And Andre is really creeping me out.
The hook up between the exes was bound to happen. And boy it did, with Anika walking in. I was soooo laughing. After what she did to Elle, she had it coming !
Lucious telling them about his disease was very emotional. I was really surprised (happily) to see him and Jamal, in that moment, connect. In his office as well. It felt real. I'm not sure if it'll be the same when Jamal publicly comes out of the closet, but for now, it's good.
I can feel the heat between Malcolm and Cookie, but her and Lucious are blazing, so it kinda pales in comparison. Still entertaining though.
That shower scene with Andre and Rhonda was really sad. I too felt like Rhonda really cared about him. I think she does. And I thought she was going to tell the family, but no. She is quite strong, handling this on her own. Twisted too lol.
Cookie's speech had me in stitches ! I absolutely loved it ! SO true and funny and well put together. The people in the crowd could relate to it. Brilliant !
The next episodes, as per the preview, will be full of drama, intrigues and such. Sooo looking forward to it !
