1. Agreed with Nathan fan below - I think that was all in trying to avoid her dad.
2. I think the ceremony itself will be simple and elegant, but the reception's gonna be a part-AY!
3. I was pleasantly surprised. They don't show a lot of how the relationship is progressing - it just kinda "is" - so it was nice to hear Kate worrying about the family that she's going to be a part of.
4. I didn't like the Alexis story arc at all, mostly because I felt that it was untrue to the character that we already knew. She went from a mature, wise early teen to an impulsive, petulant adult. I feel like there must have been a way to introduce conflict between Alexis and her dad without her devolving.
5. I'm with Dave - Lanie and Kate. Some of my favourite scenes in season 1 were the friendship between the two, and I love when Lanie gives advice. She gives the best advice out of all the adults on the show.
That's exciting! I'd watch them all, but I'd be particularly be looking forward to Iron Fist and Luke Cage. Also really glad about this because it'll give some ethnic diversity to the superhero representation on the small/big screen.
I don't know - I thought this was one of the better episodes this season. Not as good as anything we saw in Season 2, but still solid. Winston was on point as usual, and I think that the punch that Nick delivered should go down as one of the greatest punches in sitcom history.
Also, one of the things that elevated this episode was how great the guest star was - Taye Diggs was so very funny. That was one of New Girl's best uses of a guest star in a very, VERY long time...maybe since Dermot Mulroney.

Meh - I'm just discussing the review. But that's a rather grand assumption to make of all viewers who dislike a character, don't you think? For example, I happen to not care who ends up with who - I watch this show because I'm a girl who loves comics and their adaptations, and for the action and the crime drama, not particularly for the soapy relationship stuff. I dislike Laurel's character - in this incarnation - because I find her angst increasingly contrived and poorly acted. I hardly think that makes me sexist.
Oh - I almost forgot - Abu Nazir!
I have to say - the fight choreography with Arrow and Canary is just STELLAR. It is SO fun watching them fight together; it makes me wish that they could always be partners.
It's interesting that you think that we're supposed to hate Laurel right now. Because if that's true, the writers are doing a fantastic job. I was never much of a fan of the character (or the actress, really), but now we're at the point where I audibly groan whenever she's on screen. If they really do have great plans to redeem her character, well, that will have to be super exciting.
Sarah's time on the boat really didn't make any sense. Her entire flashback seemed kind of contrived until they brought in Professor Ivo (OMG are we gonna get AMAZO?!? Will Ivo connected to Starling City's S.T.A.R. Labs?!?).
Also, is anyone else hoping that Quentin Lance joins Team Arrow?
Wow - Nathan Fillion won Best Dramatic Actor (or was it Crime Drama Actor) two years in a row, and this year didn't even crack the nods.
Also - YEAH for Emma/Hook for Best On-Screen Chemistry!

1. I think my favourite scene was Regina's pep talk with Rumple. It was kinda sad that the Dark One had to be reminded that he was the Dark One, but I loved Regina's confidence.
2. Meh, why not. It's not like Emma actually considers them "parents,", and they'd do a good job.
3. Rumple would be a better teacher, but Regina would definitely be more fun to watch.
4. Charming's for the group. But I'm with Christine - Hook's confession broke my heart. Realizing that he loves Emma, and KNOWINGLY put himself in the situation where he had to tell her that, knowing it was a means to reunite her with the man she actually loves - that's heartbreaking.
5. I'd honestly forgotten about Storybrooke, but I'm okay with a revisit.
On another note, is anyone else finding it harder to ignore that dude that posts random questions about random family members of random characters on random shows?
I wasn't too big a fan of this episode. The minute the cop opened his mouth in the cafe I knew it was him - it was a tad too predictable. HOWEVER, I do like that they're continuing to make Castle remain a competent "detective", with an eye for detail and a flair for story. We missed that guy for a couple seasons!
My highlight was Beckett and Lanie chatting. I loved their girl talk in the first & second season, and I wish we got more of it. As always, Lanie has the best, most realistic advice. EVERYONE should talk to Lanie.
Alexis is still a problem for me, sorry. She didn't help her case when she went into her dad's office practically demanding he help her while still being rude to him. The apology she gave wasn't enough, because she didn't acknowledge how wrong she's been; she only apologized because she was vulnerable and Castle was there for her - as he ALWAYS is. He deserves better from his daughter, and he needs to stop trying to be a "friend" and be a father with authority every once in a while.
That being said - I hate how the writers have made Castle the butt monkey of everything. Alexis is mad...it's Castle's fault. Beckett is mad...it's Castle's fault. Castle gets mad...he has to compromise everything.
I'm perfectly okay with the amount of PDA on the show. They're a realistic working couple.
1. I'd say the final reveal surprised me the most. I saw the Black Canary reveal coming (though I was surprised at how soon it was).
2. Absolutely loved it. I didn't think the show would go there that soon, but I'm so happy they did.
3. I think she will - probably her dad. The character of Quentin Lance is becoming so much more likeable and involved, I see it going that route with him.
4. It'll basically be the same cycle that the Queens went through.
5. Who knows? I like the surprise. I'm in for the ride!
