Gary Stu Aiden Mathews - ruining interesting plots one at the time. Anyone else rooted for Takeda and was disappointed Aiden did NOT die? Well, congrats show for killing off a perfectly interesting villain in order to keep having a plot distraction alive. And not mentioning the obviously possessive behavior towards Emily, which led towards taking away at least half her awesomeness and badassery, he is trying to keep Emily from her Revenge a.k.a THE MAIN interesting part of the show?Thank you but no thank you. The only way for Revenge to return to its former glory is for Aiden to die. I sure hope that Emily will make him pay for this betrayal.
Regina makes me said. This flashback confirmed that it only takes someone to love her back to make her actually want redemption FOR redemption. Sadly Snow and Regina, despite being pretty much identical people, have far different views of morality to give that to each other. I am guessing it will take Regina loosing power and Snow going evil(which I guess will be season finale cliffhanger) for them to start understanding each other and actually rebuilding their family.
Defiance premiere was some of the BEST stuff syfy has ever done since Caprica. That's pretty much all I can say, apart from the fact that it has a very clear farscape vibe. While start dragged on a bit, the middle part was very well written to the point that when when the giant ass battle at the end of pilot episode starts, all you can think is â€œHOLY SHIT THIS IS AWESOMEâ€�.
I don't get this "argument", really. Quite a few fans argue this way - that someone somewhere confirmed it wasn't a normal taser. I DON'T CARE if a writer announced this on Twitter. IT HAS TO MAKE SENSE WITHIN THE STORY and for this episode it just didn't!!The very fact that "Taser" worked on a wooden creature and killed a magical creature already points on it NOT being just a taser.
Will David's plan to return to the Enchanted Forest fix things for Snow?Nope. David is honorable and action-y but he is also very naive. he is grasping at the illusion that "going back" will solve all their problems and they will live happily ever after in the castle, but that's not the case. The opposing point of views between Snow and Charming have been foreshadowed through entirety of this season and with Snow going off the rails, she'll have a whole lot more to say about that.
Also don't really see the reason for a pll spin off anyway. *
Frankly, neither. I'll rather wait for OUAT:Wonderland when it airs. That's the only spin off show that interests me now. PLL has been very shaky this season. Scratch that. Nigh unbearable. I have been wishing them to just get to the point at the start of the season already and it only got worse. Also don't really And TVD's spin off. All I will say is LOL. Well at least them splitting the audience will most likely kill both the spin off and the parent show and few years after someone competent will re-adapt the books without Julie Plec's involvement, rape apologism, misogyny, sexism and useless caring messiah bella swan lead character.
While I did not care much for August and Tamara plotlines(because meh, so far, at least August got closure and Emma love geometry did not get another point), I LOVED Snow's character development in this episode. Its quite clear that by the end of episode Snow has lost hope about redemption or is unwilling to pay the price for it. This whole epsiode was reminiscent of Regina in flashbacks at the start of season, down to Snow slapping marco paralleling Regina's daydream of strangling young Snow. Add to that foreshadowing with the song Snow chose for her anger-session, her reactions through the episode and the title of 2x20 and it seems clear that Snow will go off the rails completely by that episode.
Its great to see them exploring the psychological aspects of Snow making the choice she did with Cora, making a moral compromise. Moral barriers is something that have been keeping her in line her entire line and that has been breached with what she chose to do. She has spent her life in control and now she no longer has that control, hence impulsive actions slipping out. and at the same time she is completely in denial of what she is capable of since it goes against who she believed she was.
Has Cora's death made things better or worse in Storybrooke?Neither. it CHANGED things in storybrooke, but its far too complex to say whether this "avalanche effect" is for better or for worse.Did Henry have the right idea about destroying magic?Magic is the "easy way out" - a shortcut to power. And power corrupts. I don't think destroying magic would solve everything though. Magic is just another form of power, another temptation in lifeWhich missing or dead character would you like to see return to Storybrooke? Graham, Cora, August, anyone I've missed.Would like Cinderella or Kathryn to be back in some way, if only to get some closure to their stories.
