I disagree, I think Alicia did try. And how many times did she give up what she wanted to make her family happy? If her husband and kids had it their way, she'd be the stay at home mom she was before. Peter thinks he owns her. He made that very clear during that final scene outside the elevator. Alicia's entire perspective changed when she learned the truth about her marriage. But she didn't want to hurt her kids. She was a loyal wife and helped him get elected. She was willing to forgive him because she thought she knew the entire truth. She though he'd stop lying to her. But she asked straight out if there had been something between him and Kalinda, they both lied to her face. Her trust for their marriage couldn't take anymore. Alicia has been humiliated, cheated on, lied to repeatedly, tricked, and bullied into supporting Peter. But she's the slut? She's the one that didn't try? Peter is not a changed man. Yes, sending that evidence worked out for her but it could has just as easily blown up in LG's faces! It also took Glen Childs down a notch further, which is good for his career. Speaking of which, Alicia would go against Peter in court. Which wouldn't work out well if Peter was aiming for Governor and needed his wife at his side. Whose career would have to be sacrificed? Probably Alicia's. I don't get how Alicia is the whore for finally having a night with a man she's loved for years and years, after she told her husband that their marriage was over? They're not even under the same roof anymore! Their children know that they're not together but Alicia doesn't want the press to stalk her family. Hence why she doesn't make it official. Alicia had the decency to tell Peter she didn't want to be with him anymore before moving on. Peter never showed her any kind of respect. But society blames the women when marriages fail and it's ridiculous. I also resent being told I don't have morals. Marriage is a beautiful between two people that love and respect either. You can't love someone but not respect them. Peter didn't respect Alicia and he didn't respect his marriage. He broke his vows and lied to her. Alicia is prisoner to his career and ambition. She has right break free. Yes, I know this only a t.v but it speaks about real life issues.
Nora's great, I like her but I still think it's going to be Barney and Robin. Robin and Barney are always sitting beside each other, in every flash back and every scene. It's just a lot of set up to lead to no where. They did mention that things weren't over with that shirt guy for Robin, so I'm wondering how this will play out.
I was hoping it would be Barney and Robin's wedding but now it looks like it will be :D It can't be Nora. First of all, Nora wasn't there during the Meatball scene, which took place years and years into the future. If there's one thing I've learned from watching this show is that they plan everything out before hand. They have to. Also, Barney said he had already met the "right" girl, he was talking about Robin. They wouldn't bother setting this up if Robin and Barney weren't going to get back together. I think they're showing that most of the time couples shouldn't get back together but sometimes they can.
I loved the "psych" moment. But I still don't think that Ted's going to marry a blonde women, that scene with Stella as the mother had the kids blonde. That probably means he married a brunette. Why else would he assume that marrying a blonde woman equals blonde kids?
I was NOT expecting Lily to be pregnant. I should have guessed but I didn't, I was waiting for Marshall to throw up in his suitcase. I'm so happy that they're going to be parents! Yay.
I disagree with you, respectfully. Finn has already come to terms with his dad's death when his mom started dating Burt Hummel. What he got out of the ceremony was that you have to live life and do what makes you happy. Besides, if you don't love someone you should let them go. Otherwise you're living a lie. Loyalty is important but when you tell someone you love them every night, it should be because you do, not because you have to say that.
As for Terry and Will, Will was right to dump her. Terry lied to Will about being pregnant for months and months. She also used it to manipulating him into buying a house they couldn't afford. She made him work two jobs while she shopped their money away at Pottery Barn, constantly made him feel like crap for coaching the Glee Club when it made him happy, and she refused to support him when he tried singing in the Acafellas. Terry was going to have Will raise his students' baby, without him knowing about it. Think about how wrong that is for a moment. Emma encouraged Will to teach Glee Club because it made him happy. Money isn't everything. I would rather my parents to be happy in life on a moderate income then be rich and miserable. Will and Emma had feelings for each but they never acted on it until Will was divorced. Emma should never have been with Ken, that was wrong of her but she thought was she was going to end up alone. Now Terry's basically stalking Will. She made things right last episode but it doesn't mean that Will should go back to her. Especially since she was just fixing what she did in the first place.
Some of what Jesse said was right. I think that the New Directions have been getting a bit full of themselves lately. Satanna doesn't have the best voice although Naya Rivera has been working hard to change that and I really respect her hard work. Mercedes (not Amber, she must work hard too to be on this show and she's amazing) has her voice come naturally and is lazy about it. Meanwhile Rachel works harder then everyone else, although she didn't have any choreography she was clearly the best performance and that's due to Lea Michele's amazing ability to sing with her emotions. Jesse's right that everyone should adopt a better work ethic to beat Vocal Adrenaline. He's a pain in the ass but New Directions really hasn't done much to prepare except whine about themselves. I too want to see them do more with their performances...I loved the their Regional preformance and want to see them kick it into high gear for New York.
But as for Jesse and Rachel. I vote no on that. Rachel doesn't need Jesse to make her a star, she can do that on her own. And I still remember that creepy kiss he gave her last season while his coach/Rachel's bio mom was watching.
Good for Finn for FINALLY breaking up with Quinn. He owed her that much. He doesn't love her. Clearly he cares about her but he shouldn't be with her when his feelings lie elsewhere. Besides Quinn is sooooo obsessed with being the perfect Prom King and Queen that it's almost Fetal Attraction scary. I mean her last line about "ruining her plans" was frightening. I've said it before and Ill say it again, Quinn needs to either redeem herself or be mean all the time. She's acting crazy! It's like she's bi polar. Actually that would explain a lot. You can't blame her mood swings on pregnancy this season.
(Btw this was not an insult to people suffering from Bi Polar, properly treated it is a very manageable condition.)
As for Sue. I loved her this episodes. At first I thought she was a bit flat but then we saw how angry she was and it made sense. When she finally broke down at the funeral, it was heart wrenching. I think Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison make a great team.
Some people think Will was cruel for turning Becky down but I dont blame him. I understand that its tough to live with Down syndrome in high school but she can't just walk into the Glee Club so close to the end of the year. What should of happened was Becky's parents should have gone to Figgins about kicking Becky off so cruelly.But luckily Sue re considered and made Becky captain. Becky works hard on the Cheerios and deserves it...Although Quinn isn't going to be happy about that...Oh well. Being pretty doesn't mean you should automatically get what you want.
I liked this episode, the performances were fantastic. The writing was actually well done. I loved the emotional scenes and the Quinn/Finn break up was amazing. Cory Monteith and Dianna Argon did a great job.
I don't consider Alicia cheating. She's married legally but she let Peter know it was over. Her kids know as well but she's not ready to tell the world yet. Her hesitation over the divorce is the tough position Peter's career has put her in. She cares about him, she moved him to a new apartment and paid his rent...which is more than most people would have done. She doesn't want to ruin his career, she doesn't want to fight. She knows the moment they officially divorce is the moment Peter loses his chance at Governor. And her kids will have to suffer through another invasion by the press. But the relationship is over. Peter knows that too. Hence the conversation with Will. Alicia is separated from her husband. She's only in a marriage on paper. She should be allowed to do whatever she wants.
Why do they destroy such rare emotional scenes by cramming them in between dumb plot lines?!!!
The Thorpe plot was dumb. It didn't make sense and there was no Oh My God moments. The whole, Blair's in danger thing was very disappointing. Bad soap opera.
The Bar Mitzvah (pardon my spelling its late) was cute but odd...Is someone on the writing staff Jewish? I did love Blair and Chuck enjoying time together.
Bullshit on the Blair and Louis thing. He's cardboard with a bad accent and a nice chin. NEXT. Blair and Chuck shouldn't be together but at least give us something back in return.
I actually liked Serena's Hollywood plot. It made sense to me. I don't know if people even read Fitzgerald anymore but the books are fairly short and Serena could relate to his main heroines. She is practically Daisy Buchanan (wrong book I know, but Mia Farrow popped into my head). Also, it's been established that Serena leads a charmed life. Landing an amazing job by just standing on a beach is what she does best.
As for the pregnancy thing...It was the only thing on the finale that made me go...Oh. My. God. A Chair baby on the horizon? Ok, if Im going to invest time into this show they'd better deliver (haha accidental pun) a baby that sticks around. Not like Milo, not like Anastasia. I dont think it's Serena's test. I dont think it's Eleanor's either. I know she has another kid in the book but a lot of things happened in the show that were never in the series. Chair for instance. Also in the books Blair has a younger brother. Aaron Rose was in love with Blair, not Serena. Also he has dreadlocks and lives with Blair's family for a while. Eric is a straight college boy that parties a lot. Chuck has a monkey. Dan smokes and the grand love affair with Serena doesn't even make it through an entire book, mainly because he creeps her out. Vanessa is bald and chubby. Jenny has double D breasts. Blair actually get's into Yale. Nate sails off after high school. Chuck's mother isn't even dead in the books, her name's not Evelyn but Misty. Bart doesn't die either. Actually Chuck is never redeemed in the books at all. Serena's dad never abandoned her in the series but still lives with them. Lily and Rufus never dated. Rufus' doesn't own a gallery but runs an urban magazine. And hates everything UES. The Humphreys' dont live in Brooklyn but the Upper West Side... I could go on and on. Basically, same characters very different stories.
Amazing. She needs to dump both Jesse and Finn. She's great on her own.
Also, Chuck chugs scotch whenever he feels sad. How the hell is he going handle the stress of marriage? Ridiculous, ridiculous.
This makes me cynical for the show. When Blair and Chuck reunited at the end of Season 2 I was blown away, what a cute scene. He went around Europe to get things that she liked. That was adorable. But now something about all this has been tainted. Blair was just engaged. How can she just up and marry someone else? The same night. Besides, I was looking forward to Blair's wedding dress (Although I'm still against her getting married so young). Not the same damn thing she wore last episode. The Jewish wedding, while a cute tribute to Cyrus, isn't realistic. They both have convert in order to be able to have a traditional Jewish wedding. And that isn't like going to the mall. It takes a lot of time and study. If they were to renew their courtship, I would like it to have been sweet and tender. Not hasty and in the heat of the moment. I think after all those stupid plot lines (Jack and that friggin hotel, Eva, Raina, Prince Guy) the fans deserve a spectacular wedding. Wedding dress included. And yes, I'm sulking about the dress... I saw her in pearls...I'm starting to sound like Dorota now..Speaking of which...Where is she? Living her life with her husband and BABY, I'm guessing.
