I loved this one! Mercy pulling things over on Mary is a really cool step. Mary was once like Mary, but she GOT the powers. Why shouldn't Mercy? I like Cotton and Alden working together a lot, too!

I think it sounded like begging only because she used the tone of voice that was appropriate to the moment -- which included Cary and Alicia at each other's throats. She said it in the way it would be heard most beneficially for her. Don't doubt she is thinking of herself first.

I think he knew, but he probably thought she was just being Kalinda. Not that they TOLD her to exploit it. Additionally, having it thrown in your face in front of others is humiliating. Everyone wants to think they're the one who can make someone different.

I think what the device did to Kiera played a major portion in her awakening, and I'm also beginning to wonder if traveling farther from her original timeline is making it easier for her mind to rid itself of the control the implant had over it. Kiera saw some horrible things and early on in her role as Protector she fought against the way they wanted her to act, as we saw when she saved the children over the corporate big wigs. The longer she was under their "nudging" the more commonplace it became for her to do what they expected of her. She has probably had more moral ambiguity than she's let on, but seeing herself killed, the changed in the Alecs and learning about the Freelancers has opened her eyes more completely. She doesn't have to hide behind what she believed anymore. As for CAlec, I'm going with the theory that absolute power corrupts absolutely. So much went down with Alec before he time traveled that didn't with CAlec that being given the world made the difference. Also, I think there may be more, subtle changes in this timeline that we are yet unaware of. Things seemed to be going in a different direction before Alec time traveled, but we don't know to what extent.

Salem Review: At Odds

I voted for the rape. That was shocking. Trampnsparent for commenting LP!

I thought you were a female. You were a female in April, when you said, "As a female." Remember?

Going back to multiple monikers again? What on EARTH would the picture Kalinda has do to Alicia? Make her smile? God forbid.

I think familiarity makes some fans happy. The loudest fans. I know them well writing about other shows. It's like the writers have to be TVically correct lest they risk offending viewers. Argh!

Seriously? Are you my freaking doppelganger?! Let go of my hand! LOL

I've been anxiously awaiting your review and it did not disappoint. I laughed out loud before the photo. Nice! Death is meaningless on TVD. Grams said she had a happy ending waiting for Bonnie; what Bonnie got was hardly it. I'm sure her clasping hands with Damon as they went into the light will be the thing that saves them both, even though Grams only meant to save Bonnie. Or something. Why in the hell would they bring Alaric back without Damon to play besties? They get all the great lines. What should have happened is that Silas made it through and not Stefan. At LEAST a main character could have been killed, permanently, without an actor leaving the show. Instead, they'll probably even rebuild the Mystic Falls Grill with that generous donation from the Salvatore family. Sigh.
