True, but does she have that gun legally? Didn't she buy it from some shady store without registering it?

I agree that the finale was underwhelming. The CIA missions were hit and miss, and I was hoping for a more interesting motive behind the particular missions they were given by the agency. I do hope Ray is back next year - he's one of my favourites. If any show can find a way to bring a character back from the "dead", it's Archer.

Hi! That did cross my mind and I should have mentioned that. You're right about how the show does "death" - if Katya could come back, bionic Ray is more than a possibility, but at that moment, I think he was dead. After Archer says Ray was dying of sepsis, and they cheer, then Krieger says "I think he's actually already dead." He's beyond pale and there are flies circling him. Whether or not his "death" was permanent though, it's still an awful way to go, and I think the genius of that last scene stands either way :-)

I'm SUPER excited about this - and I seriously hope this will be better than the last movie.

Interesting hypothesis. However, when all Juliette's symptoms started, before she realized she was a Hexenbiest and thought she was pregnant, didn't she take a pregnancy test that was negative? Or am I imagining that?

Spot-on review - and I agree in every possible way. I hated the paternity reveal. I hate the whole soap-opera twist. I think the time lapse in the Grimmverse from Adalind and Nick's tryst to now is much less than real time (probably really only a couple months in Grimm time). On the other hand, the timing is still fishy because when Adalind slept with Nick, Diana was less than a month old. Remember, she gave birth in the forest while on the run, went straight to Nick's house, they sent Diana off with Nick's mom, Adalind screwed Nick thinking the royals had her baby. From a biological standpoint - while it's possible that she could have gotten pregnant within that first month, it's not very likely. The only possible redeeming factor about it is that it makes for interesting possibilities with the baby's potential powers. But I still hate it.

LOL...I was hoping someone else noticed the Peter Rabbit thing!

You're right, he needed her in rabbit form, AND he needs it to be fresh. So it has to be done as close to the sale as possible.

Great review - and I agree, the episode fell a bit short for me. Interesting that you said that Fitz betrayed Simmons. I don't think he did, and I'm not convinced that Simmons should justifiably feel betrayed. For one, Fitz's actions weren't about Simmons, they were about Skye and keeping her safe. Also, Simmons deliberately put a lot of distance between her and Fitz; they've barely had a conversation in months. I think her expectation that he should still be loyal to her is unfounded, and she had to see how her behaviour would have led Fitz to believe that Skye wasn't safe from her.

Another note...any Avatar:TLA fans in the house? Lightning redirection? Iroh would have been impressed.
