I don't see Ward ever rejoining the team anymore. He either turns against Garret and kills him or follows through orders and gets mortally wounded, but then he somehow uses TAHITI drugs to survive. Cue next season him being a complete neutral-party psycho, allowing us to observe step by step on how it affects "normal people". - IT gives both Skye and Coulson and personal investment into it since both of them survived that drug for various reasons, so that continues their plotline.- IT could make those two a targets for Ward if his self-preservation instinct is stronger than the supposed psychosis.- IT gives a sufficient way for Ward to develop Taskmaster's abilities(just with a wee bit different downside).
If Snow feeling "sorry" for Cora's death was the magic plot-cure of her heart, the show should not have spent WHOLE TWO SEASONS saying that its not that simple. Heart splitting is something one would expect from Disney movie, not OUAT. OUAT got its viewership solely because of the writers willingness to subvert fairytale cliches - "love" alone does not get you anywhere, you can fail, you can die, death is final, etc. Both Robin and Aiden are boring masculine manpain gary stus forcefully written into the show to prevent other possible romances and to engage in forced boring romance pairings with a kickass female...at the cost of her empowerment in terms of narrative. Seems the same to me. 99% of this episode goes against the logic and laws that the show itself has set up already.
THe hilarious thing is that they were nonchalantly okay with Aurora and Phillip ACTUALLY having betrayed them at the start of episode.
By this point, a time-travel retcon is pretty much a safe bet.
So let me get this straight:OUAT, in a SINGLE EPISODE: - Swept “The Price of Dark Curse” thingy(that DROVE LAST THREE SEASONS) under the rug(Snow’s obviously fine for no reason at all).- Swept Snow’s “dark heart” thing under the rug(only pure of heart can enter that whateverplace with WhitePlotWitch)- Created a new out-of-nowhere use for hearts that most likely won’t have any consequences ever and makes absolutely no freaking sense. - Caused Aurora, Phillip and their plotbaby to fall into a huge plot hole(which pretty much confirms my fear that time travel will be used to retcon all of this shit) And on top of that we have Robin Hood - who I am now convinced is OUAT's AIden Mathis - an annoying Gary Stu know it all who magically has all solutions to all problems and exists solely for forced romance. I guess with Neal dead and gone, some OTHER boring pairing had to appear. Talk about an awfully written episode…gods. What the hell happened, show? This was Vampire Diaries level of bullshit.
This episode proves that Ward will never get back to the "good guy" team. At best the "redemption" will mean that he will betray Garret too and become a third "neutral" side sometimes hindering and sometimes helping the team in S2.
Best episode to date. Also Whedon family continues their tradition of having a main character betray the others and become a villain. Only Firefly escaped that if I remember correctly(Jane does not really count) and I am sure if it lasted we would have gotten that Ward's entirety of actions through the show just took new meaning. Ward's "fling" with May too. Ward's sudden interest and infatuation with Skye also makes a complete sense now. On other hand, Simmons is also shady - her "getting better at lying" line was suspicious - and then during Hand's "hydra test" what she did was basically a non-answer. And what better a coverstory for a fake identity than pretending to be someone who is bad at lying?
The problem with Kira is that she is pretty much a mary sue plot device without any sort of character development(or character). Allison at least had an active role in things. So far show does not have any female to replace her in that. If anything, Lydia could play that role since she does have good chemistry with Scott, but alas, too much Stiles fan-pandering in this show for that to happen.
Remember when Teen Wolf used to be GOOD? I only barely do. Season Two already had a lot of sexist bullshit and the way they treated Lydia, but Season Three? Now even plot does not make sense. The show has great cinematography but literally everything else is rotten: - Plot is disjointed and nonsensical.- The show is full of pointless characters(like Isaac) or walking plot-devices(like Kira).- Scott is always sidelined and Stiles is the holy messiah gary stu loved by all, so the show could as well be re-titled into Stiles.- The show is incredibly sexist towards its females - through S3 none of female characters did anything important, Lydia got subdued into being a death-radar or Stiles sidekick, and Allison was in sidelines. Kira got some times in front-lines, but that’s due to her status as a plot-device.- The show is incredibly misogynist towards the females - how many female characters did it kill by now? Too many. Allison’s death most likely had to be a “shock factor” , the “twist”, but for me it was expected - Allison was a strong person, she was a character, she was interesting, but she also was female, which, by Teen Wolf standards equals death. She was the only female who was capable of getting shit done in this show and I am sorry but I have no interest in this trainwreck without the said lead heroine So yeah, this bullshit is the last straw in already dead show, essentially the point where the show reaches the apex of bullshit and bad writing, making it almost as bad as Vampire Diaries And after putting through with that show for a while after it turned into trainwreck, I just have no time nor nerves to put up with Teen Wolf’s bullshit now So yeah, GG, Jeff Davis, you are about to lose a lot of viewers due to your sexism and inability to write coherently.
- Don't care about Jane/Lisbon generic romance. Every procedural has that bs.- RJ minions were interesting before because there was a almost twin-peaks-y mystery surrounding RJ, now they are just another criminal organization.- Jane's past only packs a punch when it has relation to present - unless he pissed off a couple other serial killers, that's not going to happen anymore.
