The 100 Review: Acts of Aggression

I'm just rewatching the episode and was going to add that. Clarke had a few drinks herself. So yes. her judgement must have been impaired... Hence the bad decisions. But that's a good point. no one mentioned it, not even me lol.

My gosh, I felt so lost... I soon as I finished watching the episode, I came on here and there was no review yet. I needed to share my thoughts... That ending was all kinds of wrong ! It will be a torture to wait until the Fall.
OMG... how come they all went in there !
It was a beautiful day. The whole thing was fun and nice to watch. Hermann not telling the Chief that he couldn't get the church was hilarious as the guys kept teasing him about it. Man they can't keep a secret in there ! I still don't get why Boden got married so quickly especially since he hasn't known her that long. But oh well.
Gaby passed the test !! Congrats ! But, she had to be transferred to that wretched station. I don't even get why that Lieutenant wanted her there. To prove a point, to break her ? I don't think Casey going there helped any. AND him trying to find her a new station was understandable but wrong. She has to do this herself and prove them that she's capable. Now however, I don't know if she'll do it. Twice she's been the victim of a bombing... She is strong, but she may end up with a case of PTSD... AND she found out about the ring ! And then told Shay, who couldn't keep the secret anymore. And Casey popped the question. Her face said yes but the words couldn't leave her lips... Why ?
Poor Kelly... The second they found the body I knew.. And yes he did a sweep, he called out.. Had he looked under the bed, bla bla bla. You could see all those questions going on in his head but it would not have helped. I know it's bad, but I absolutely LOVED how he snapped at Devon. The nerves of that woman ! And then she called him rude ! Now that got me cussing at my screen lol. She stole from them and when he told her the way it was she had the nerves to call him rude ! I hope Shay knows what she's doing !
Kelly going to Lindsay was interesting. This is a very different Kelly that we've seen. What they have is mature. She can give him the comfort he needs. She knew how to talk to him. The others couldn't...not even Shay. I cannot wait to see more of it. Glad the kid survived. It would have crushed him even more.
Mills is looking for his family, on his father's side. His mom caved with him wanting to be a firefighter. I don't know how she'll take that one.
Great finale, apart from that awful cliffhanger which left me with my hand over my mouth long after the episode ended...

The 100 Review: Acts of Aggression

Wow Carla, you and I are on the same page ! As I was watching the episode, I thought that Bellamy was one extreme ( violence first, not talking), Finn was on the other (let's talk, no need for violence) and Clarke was in between (we can talk, but if it comes to it we will use violence). And it makes sense, She can be quite balanced. Though at that particular moment, I think they needed Finn's touch more than anything. Likewise, I am not sure if Clarke's judgement is clouded by anger towards Finn, but she doesn't trust him anymore. They need to talk, because what happened out there was her fault. Fair enough they needed to be prepared for any eventuality. The Grounders were ! But it was poorly planned.
And yes, bringing Jasper was a very bad move. He is traumatized, he was drunk and not reliable. He could have been seeing things that were not real.
Would the Grounders have attacked first ? Maybe, but at the end of the day, they are the ones who did. The Grounders were doing the same thing, came prepared. However, I believe that they were also waiting for a signal, which their leader never gave. Jasper on the other hand was unstable and not prone to taking orders.
Like Finn said, if they weren't at war before, they sure as hell are now !
This was a one time deal, they blew it . Peace talks are over. The Grounder leader was right, to some extent. But they attacked first as well. Did they present themselves as the survivors, nope. They attacked Jasper. For the flares killing a group of Grounders, well it sure made things uneven. However, with Bellamy's hate/angry speeches, the 100's minds were already poisoned.
Now on the Ark, before that bomb exploded I was not smiling, I could tell something was gonna go wrong. You could see Jaha smiling and stuff. Diana... that woman needs to pay. Why could she not wait ? What was the point of taking the lifeboat and not put as many people as she could, if, like she said, she cared so much about "her" people ! She was well aware that her doing that would kill those left behind. So in the end, it seems like she was just a selfish b**ch.
Kane's mom dying was sad. Especially when 1 minute before he acted like he didn't care, he didn't remember anything. Well, he remembered in the end.
Btw, regarding Abby, did they hit her or stabbed her when she tried to open the doors ? I am also impressed that, even though Diana's words were true, Abby still told her that she wouldn't go with her. I also don't know what to think of Jaha. He did lie to everyone in regards to the Exodus Project. When Diana confronted him in front of his men, he still denied. Did he do that so they would keep fighting or what ? It probably would be a contrast with Diana. Jaha told them that they would find a way to survive. She didn't care at all. But it was too late as he caved so many times when his words was put in question. The scene where we could see the shuttle leaving and the lights going off was chilling... It also looks like there will be lots of damage to the Ark. What are they going to do ?
And then it crashed in a big Boom while Clarke and Bellamy were watching. Is Abby dead ? I think She was on it because they took her at the back at some point.
Octavia and Lincoln !!!! I was so thrilled. Their scenes are really great. Lots of chemistry. That sneak attack was cool. She needs more practice though LOL. When Finn found them, now that was funny. Lincoln talking some more was so cool. And I could tell that he and Finn were kind of the same. Trying to be pacifists in a community of violence. When his people shot him I knew it was coming and was bracing myself for his death but he survived. Now, as he stayed behind, will they let him live ?
The episode was good. But too many inconsistencies... I cannot wait to see the aftermath of it all.

I rewatched it and loved how Emma realized that the way Snow looked at her when she was changed back, was the same look Emma gave her. It was heartbreaking, but yes, Emma looked at Snow like she was a stranger. And I am glad she realized that Storybrooke was home and missed her parents. Loved that she called Snow and Charming, Mom and Dad.

IKR !!! That was priceless !

Arrow Review: Whoever He Loves the Most

Sebastian Blood is no more ! Hooray ! I mean did he really think Slade was on his side ? Pathetic.
Merlin/Daddy is back ! Oh boy. Friend or Foe ? Though I don't think Thea shot him.
Felicity was awesome ! Slade taking her is just plain "please Oliver, kill me" kinda move. Btw, I too thought Ollicity was going to kiss. So close !
I am annoyed by that woman ! What's her name... the one that fought Digg. Can't stand her !
Sarah and Laurel were golden ! Loved it all. And Lance, badass. Detective Lance, sir !
The Island scenes were useless. They felt forced.
Roy got cured !!! Too bad they don't have the misty cure, true so true !
Amanda Waller is not going to bomb Starling City. Right ?
I cannot believe tomorrow is the finale !!

I'm actually anxious as to how they're going to portray it... They changed so many things already from the books.

Hannibal Review: Tea Cups

Wow, what a brilliant show ! Finally caught up with it all and man, Mason is one sick, twisted piece of work ! We have seen a lot on Hannibal, but him taking her lady parts and forcing her to have an abortion was sickening. And believe it or not, I can eat throughout a Hannibal episode just fine, not even flinch. But this... I hate to watch Michael Pitt play Mason... and he does it so well...
Now Freddie dead ? Nah, no chance. Though, the imagery of Will coming out of his cocoon and becoming the stag might be misleading. I have read all reviews and comments and agree that this is a long con. Jack taking Alana to Freddie after their conversation or interrogation, proves it, or at least some of it. Now is Will doing some improvisation, sure. Planting the seeds in Mason's mind is one of many.
I found it interesting to see Hannibal showing regret over killing Abigail. Though I feel like remorse would be stronger and I don't think he was there yet. Will has lost two children. And man I wish he had killed Mason. But he still didn't. And it means that he hasn't gone too far yet. I do understand that to catch Hannibal, he has to become him, or at least make him believe it, but for us viewers, it is good to see that he is not there yet. There is still hope. However, Will has definitely become colder and more introverted. It is chilling to watch sometimes.
Is it me, or Mason collecting the tears and drinking them feels like he is feeding from the pain he inflicts ? Twisted prick.
Alan and Hannibal, still weird and wrong to watch. Though he starting to feel like she is not under his spell anymore. Again, the seeds of doubt which were a long time coming ! I mean, Will had every reasons to say what he said to her on his porch. She gave up on him, she didn't believe him. So no, she doesn't get to do whatever it is she's trying to do. On top of it all, she went with the very man he was warning them about. That woman !
I am so glad they renewed the show. I wonder if season 3 will be about Hannibal finally getting caught...

Hannibal Review: Tea Cups

Alana annoying ? No, you're not the only one ! I finally decided to watch the show and as of now, she is the character that I hate the most, and that says a lot ! Gosh, what a self righteous woman ! Loved how Will told how it was. She's got some nerves !
