1. I really wish people would stop mentioning the previews in their comments for current episodes. Some of us actively avoid them (NBC is noted for terrible spoilers). 2. As a die hard fan of Chuck, I feel justified in saying that this was one of the worst episodes of the show. I can usually forgive plot holes, but this was just nuts. WHY would Ellie and Awesome not think first to call the actual spies, Chuck or Sarah, when they realized this wasn't their spy game? Chuck should be past being a whiny desperate scaredy cat, and his tech savvy brain should have come up with a better alternative than just giving away the virus. I understand that helps move the plot forward, but we didn't need that. In any case, watching Ellie and Awesome try to save the day was a lot of fun,and Yvonne's acting was superb. The look of pure ice she gives Chuck after their rescue was positively chilling.
1. I want to say no, just because a recurring theme of fairy tales is that there's always a loophole out of "death" by magic. Although killing him would raise the stakes. 2. It does look like it's just beneath Storybrooke. 3. I have no idea what he was doing! Are there any other fairy tales that involve gardening? One thing that's certain with Mr. Gold is that nothing occurring around him is innocent or coincidental. 4. UFC cage match (j/k). I'm pretty sure that Emma will become sheriff. 5. I'm gonna go with an A. I've been captivated so far by the story, and pleasantly surprised by Jennifer Morrison (I couldn't stand her before). I'm okay with the variable special effects - I don't think it adds or takes away from the story (hear that, Terra Nova??)
I'm late on this one: 1. Favourite scene was the Community folks making an appearance - I was completely surprised by Yvette Nicole Brown. That was really cool - especially because we had Awesome on Community a few episodes ago. 2. Hmmm...since I'm not a techie, can I go with chores? I can clean an entire house to a UB40 soundtrack. Not sure why. 3. Sarah - advertising, spokeswoman. Casey - definitely customer retention. Morgan...scapegoat? 4. Jeffali! HA! I'd be fighting Yvette Nicole Brown over Vali... 5. I'm gonna go with a 9 - just because it's been a while since the show has dared to shock us like that. Between Casey's takedown and Decker's demise, this is feeling like Season 1 & 2 Chuck. I love it!
man, you really hit the nail on the head when you said "confused and angered". Is Dan Harmon just universally hated in Hollywood? Has he been blackballed or something? Because I don't understand how Community continues to be snubbed by everyone, and Glee continues to get accolades. ANY given episode of Community this year was better than all of season 2 of Glee. I also found it funnier than Episodes (the British version was WAY funnier). And I don't understand the sudden disappearance of Neil Patrick Harris from the comedy categories. HIMYM wasn't all that great, but he gave some killer performances this year with the return of his father. And how does Downton Abbey count as a miniseries when it's 15 episodes? That's MORE than Homeland! (sigh) The world has gone mad...
Actually, @ChildishGambino, I found Annie's scene to be absolutely hilarious...and everytime I watch it I laugh more. "what's a dimininuwahhh?" Gets me every time LOL
Seriously? Jon Cryer? What hold does he have on the Hollywood folk? And having watched both The Big Bang Theory AND Community this year, there's no way TBBT deserved that above Community. Community was way funnier, AND made much better use of their ensemble cast. I just don't understand it.
Oh my goodness, that was heartbreaking. (Pun not intended). The Huntsman/Grahame was sooo compelling in this episode, and I was so excited that he was remembering stuff. Man, Regina is RUTHLESS. But maybe death by magic can be undone; that's a recurring theme in fairy tales, isn't it? And Mary Margaret slept with the doctor; isn't he Doc, one of the dwarves? Eeek...((shudders)) I totally thought Gold had killed the wolf, who gardens in the woods?! I was surprised. And WHY was Mr. Gold encouraging Grahame? Another note: Forget House and HIMYM. This was the best acting we got from Jennifer Morrison ever. And I don't understand how people didn't know that Regina remembered everything - I thought that was obvious from the beginning. It even says so in the opening segment.(shrugs)
I completely agree with this review; this was the best episode yet. One of the overarching themes of this show seems to be individuality - no one person is representative of their entire family. Nick's not as ruthless as other Grimms, Eddie isn't like other Blutbaden, we had the dad in the three bears episode, the violinist in the last episode, etc. That's going to make Nick's job very hard, especially if he's has to kill the bad creatures - he can't make sweeping judgements. There must be other Grimms - I'm looking forward to when he meets the others. And I'm still waiting for Juliette to become useful somehow...
This episode was way better than the last one. The story was fun, and it was a little lighter, which I like. I agree with the "Bones" rip - I swear we've seen that before (and Bones has way more fun with those kinds of gross murder scenes), but it was still fun to watch. And I LOVE Eddie - he still owns the show as far as I'm concerned... Sergeant Wu is kinda like a watered-down-network-version of Dexter's Masuka - but still fun. They seriously need to give Juliette something to do - I'm holding on to hope that she's more important than they're letting on. @RealDiehl - I wondered about that. I think that he only became a full "Grimm" when he started seeing the creatures for what they were - I think they see him as he sees them. They've been able to recognize him from day one though - Eddie knew from the get go.
