I started watching the show last month and boy that was an interesting ride. Now that it is back I found myself ABSOLUTELY PISSED OFF ! I wasn't enjoying the Conde/Mary storyline but that episode had me hating it to the max. Heck even Mary got on my last nerve. Yes she's been through a lot but give me a break. Blaming Francis and the tragic events to be with Conde was just outrageous. Yes Francis was at fault, but so was she. Conde is a crook and it's about time he's revealed as such !The only thing I enjoyed in this episode was Greer and Leith. I love that he got to see her for who she's become. Yes the irony is strong as she looked down on him for who he was and now it's happening to her, but her as a madam is so much fun. I cannot wait to see where they go from that if I can stand watching the show some more.The writers managed to kill Bash and Kenna's relationship which I loved at the beginning. Though him being away all the time and neglecting her, her wanting more from life than what he gave, yeah not a good combo. I was so gutted though...This show has gone downhill pretty quick. And it's just 1 season and a half through. I was really appalled at the people who like Conde with Mary. Hope this will end soon as this storyline is killing the show and painting Mary in a very unattractive light. I enjoyed your review Terry as you too seemed pretty fed up with this crap lol.

Okay, can we just get the names right in here please ?! It's THORUNN not PORUNN ! Pretty sure that has been pointed out, explained in detail before !NOW, loved the episode ! Except Siggy dying ! I was in shock. Didn't see that coming. I really liked the character. And her trying to tell Aslaug to take care of her kids instead of being infatuated with Harbard was brave. But hey, it took her dying for the woman to put an end to this. Now, according to the legends she gave Ragnar four sons. She already done that so her getting pregnant now would be weird.Ragnar and Egbert were absolutely hilarious. First while watching the feast then at the toast when they poured the "poisoned" wine. Kwentrith killing her brother was a bit of a surprise. Did she do it to prove her loyalty to the king or simply for ambition, meaning her being sole queen of Mercia ? I was honestly disappointed Athelstan slept with Judith. I guess it had to happen but nonetheless. It's time for him to get more action and go bck to Kattegat ! Her husband might want him dead first. And King Egbert knows so yeah, not looking good for him. I loved how Lagertha put the king in his place. She is not your typical woman. And she also needs to go home quick. Kalf has found a brilliant ally in King Horik's son. The boy is out for blood ! I couldn't find much on how Lagertha died so I wonder what the writers have planned .Floki is still pissed off. Rollo is starting to get the bigger picture who we know will accomplish great things. Thorunn was being unfair treating Bjorn the way she did. She's the one who wanted to fight. The consequences in her case were not glory but pain and her face being disfigured. Bjorn didn't want her to fight but he didn't have much of a choice. Helga saw the wanderer come and she saw him leave/vanish. Who was he... So strange.

Maleficent pregnant ?! Come again ? Well I can't wait for them to elaborate on that one ! And Snow had a hand in killing it...man this 4b season is really intriguing. I hope Regina won't give in to darkness and that she'll stay strong. Emma and Hook were really nice. I'm glad he told her about what Rumple had him do, but how he knows Ursula is another story. Did he make some kind of deal with the sea goddess ? That would make sense. Now, Emma destined for great darkness/evil ? Maybe, I guess it would depend on circumstances and the lies won't help.It was nice when Regina apologized to Gepetto. How she acted with little Pinocchio was out of frustration. She has come a long way... I think Henry found something big on the Author...can't wait to find out where it leads.Belle and Will ? Since when ?I mean I know he fell asleep in the library and all, but wow. Okay. Mr Gold looked beside himself. Serves him well. I felt a pang, but he kinda did this to himself.BTW, I'm so Glad to Maleficent (Pam in True Blood, gosh I missed that actress ! )
well she could tell Hook was lying (which was quite obvious). but I do see your point. Emma should've been able to tell...
What a sham ! I was absolutely baffled by Lexa's betrayal ? Where did that come from ! Hell, last week people were worried Clarke would play Lexa and all. Well I guess that got solved quick. I mentioned previously how Lexa was a hypocrite and a coward. Her decision to free her people, leaving the Sky ones to be harvested instead was just that. Sure the MM will leave the Grounders alone, but they have wanted to be out there for decades ! What says they won't want to anihilate the Grounders ?! Sure they have no knowledge of the outside the way the others do, but still ! And Lexa needed Clarke's people's help. Maybe not as much as Clarke did need hers but WTF ! Like others said, she was willing to have 250+ bombed but betrayed the Alliance for 50 ?! Where is the logic in that ! They were right at the door, they could have attacked and be done with this threat Lexa urged needed to be destroyed as it had terrorized them for too long ! This doesn't make sense... Being a plot for a later comeback is a bit of a stretch as in all fairness it is Lexa-like... And I don't believe Clarke would have done the same. I was actually laughing when it all unfolded. Somehow I could believe it even though it was unbelievable. SHE would do something like that. And that last shot with Clarke standing alone at the gate was such a harsh contrast from the beginning of the episode with the army and all. Now she has to try and save 47 (since Raven and Wick were captured) AND the Arkers as it seems they'll be captured too. ON HER OWN ?! Well at least Octavia had the balls to stay behind, which was sad since she just got accepted as part of the Tree People ! Lincoln too tried but was taken away... I was so glad he survived and showed some ass-kicking stuff. You could see he was torn. Whereas Octavia became Grounder, he became one of the Sky people. But Bellamy is Octavia's world. That finale better explain to me whatever the hell happened with Lexa and don't get me wrong, this episode WAS AWESOME ! But that back-stabbing, out of nowhere, nonsensical crap killed some of that awesomeness !
I know right ! Him playing the piano had me in a state ! Well he sang before, but not "officially". This though, WOW !
That episode's first 3 minutes had me crying. dying with laugh. I couldn't stop. Cookie and Porsha hammering Anika was just priceless. I see the hood/ghetto side of Cookie and wonder if she'll evolve past that too. She ain't in the joint no more... Her outfit though, DAMN ! It was about time Anika left ! Bye Felicia (btw, who's Felicia LOL). Jamal trying to help and Lucious not even letting him do so was just out of order. That man needs to get over himslef ! He's the only who cares about Jamal being gay ! Glad Cookie and Hakeem got to strengthen their bond. I see what you guys mean about Jamal's video. Though I didn't get a D'Angelo vibe it didn't feel right, and the Empire sign behind him was... Yeah, I didn't like it lol. Though glad for Ryan and Jamal !Drunk Cookie once again had me in tears lol. Poor Malcom, tryna get her in the car. But them shoes though ! I see the flame between them but as he said, with Lucious and how he feels about Cookie and him being his boss, well, complicated is what I'll call it !Andre man ! Before I thought no one knew about his condition. But after this episode I wonder once again, how can they not know ! Lucious, the way he looked at him at some point, and the elevator scene. Yes, they done that beofre. So I wanna go and say that the family knows though I might be wrong, which would be really amazing. This is not something that can be hidden easily !They are milking "You're So Beautiful" and I love every version lol. The original version with Lucious is sooo magical ! The White Party version rocks ! And This episode's version is another hit for me. Wow ! It was so cool, so smooth !
They can't get rid of Elle. She's as old as Empire, still getting royalties and stuff. Cookie I think stopped managing her. It doesn't mean that the label dropped her, which they haven't.
I just started the show and I know it's like 3 months old, but I do agree with your disappointment at the MaryxConde storyline. It's just ridiculous. I too sometimes hope they'd turn to History more than anything, but was appalled by the turn of events in the second half of the episode... WHY ? Honestly, the man is a known traitor ( according to History), so why do this. Heck I "got over" the baby storyline which in itself is just absolutely RIDICULOUS but this makes no sense whatsoever ! So no Carissa, you are not alone in wishing that sometimes the writers would try and put more accuracy to the show ;-). I am also glad you started reviewing season 2 as the season 1 reviewer was, excuse me, not doing a good job at all, which was supposed to be REVIEWING the episodes, not recapping them with 1-2 paragraphs at the most !
Okay... After watching the episode I was in total shock. So upset that I went to bed... I couldn't do it. So I slept on it and now I can comment. ALl I could say when they revealed Frank killed Lila was NOOOOOOOO NO NO NO NO NO NO ! It was bad. What did Sam have on him ? It'll be nice if we find out. Sam HAD Lila killed. Sure I always said he didn't kill her but he still had her murdered. And it's as good as. And Frank acting all shocked and stuff when Laurel suggested he handled Rebecca. Please. I am soooo disappointed. Now I oh so wanna find out who the heck Franck is. Because he has connections so deep that Nate got beaten up in jail. Ex mafia member ? Honestly, Annalise went too far where Nate is concerned. Too much is too much. The hell she put that man through. Fine he called that number, but I honestly hope he'll steer clear from her ! I so thought it was Bonnie during the episode. And it was hilarious when the guys found out about her and Asher. Who btw, is gonna be more involved in all this. New prosecutor is interrogating him, Bonnie and Frank used him to get the Judge in Nate's case out AND he showed up at the house where, AGAIN, Connor's car was parked. It just too much lol. Rebecca's story on the night of Lila's murder was something. I felt bad foe her when Lila just flipped and dropped the act. Because Rebecca really thought they were friends. She even went looking for her. Though she had been lying right, left and center ! So Lila's boyfirend was telling the truth about how things went down. It was not nice. As Wes vouched for her and all. But finding and hiding in the water tank when your friend was dumped in, now that must have been hell. The Keating 4 did not go easy on her. Heck they went as far as tying her up ! Annalise tried to get to the bottom of things but Rebecca was not helping. And what she did to Rudy ! Unforgivable. That kid's life is ruined because of it. Now, Rebecca's Eggs 911 doesn't mean anything to me. I have no idea who/what it is. The fact that she went and found the campus cop was ballsy ! As for who killed, I will not even attempt to try. I won't go through this again LOL. Wes looked a bit shocked when he saw she was gone, but apart from that, I have no idea whatsoever ! Then Oliver and Connor... That was just heart-wrenching ! Connor turned out to be clean when Oliver was diagnosed HIV positive. Wow. I honestly thought he had been told the contrary ! What happened there. I hope Connor doesn't abandon him. But then again, it is Connor. Let's hope. Michaela had some new found badassery this week ! Damn ! The way she spoke to Aiden's mom about the real reasons why she wants her to marry her son was priceless. I guess judging by mom's look she was right on the money ! Then Laurel put more baddass in the mix when she gave her the ring back. LMAO ! Wanted her to keep her mouth shut. Well it worked. BAM ! Season 2 will have me try a different approach now that I know how the show works. Who killed Rebecca will be s02's mystery. I will start speculating when I see more. Season 1 had me in so much shock and all. I gotta protect that heart. lol. What a finale ! What a finale ! Amazing....
