I have to say, I was a bit disappointed by the gorilla. I had expected a bear or something similar. The gorilla was a bit anticlimatic. But besides that I liked the episode, though I do hope that everyone is getting back together soon. I prefer to watch the 100 with the remaining people of the 100 together. Not splitting up like what is happening now with Bellamy.
I actually like Malia. I am surprised a lit of people hate her actually. Stiles deserves someone better than Lydia, who has never given him the time of day. And I agree with what is said before: where was all the hate when Lydia kept hooking up with that alfa dude? Now that guy I disliked. I would still like to see Lydia and Stiles someday, but both have a lot of growing up to do before their romance would seem realisitic. On a sidenote, I am not happy about young Derek! I liked an older werewolf (not Peter) and oh how I am going to miss Tyler! Well, we'll see what babyface Derek will bring us. But they better bring Tyler back fast!

Demon Dean? hm. It feels like there will be a lot of seperate Sam and Dean storylines next season. I just want them to be brothers again, not be seperated
I give up. I tried to like this show, I really did. I know I complained about the gory and messy parts and they were missing from this episode. I should be happy right? I'm not. The problem is that this show fails to captivate me. I don't care about the characters, I don't care about the story. I dislike the lovestory between Mary and John and I know that Mary is suppose to be a conflicted person but all she does is irritate me. This is just my opinion and I hope that other people will enjoy the show, but this was my last episode.
When did the monsters change? I mean, shapeshifters needed to shed skin when changing, it used to be a gory mess, not just shake their head and be done with it. And since when can werewolfs control their change that easily, no moon needed anymore? I know some things changed on werewolfs with the whole Garth episode, but it wasn't that easy as I recall? When did I miss all of this? You are right, this didn't feel like a supernatural episode because it isn't. Monster families and maneuvering? staying in one place? I have my doubts. The strong thing about supernatural isn't so much the monsters but the bond between Sam and Dean. That is why we keep watching, even when the monsters and their plan are just plain stupid (remember the leviathans?). The problem that I forsee with this show is that it will turn into a maneuvering drama to see which family will be on top. And that is the point, that has never been important to Supernatural, because there are bigger things going on. also, Ennis shot a human. Nobody is going to say anything about that?
Well, I said I would watch another episode and I did. Not sure if that made things better. It probably made things worse. I know that shock can be a good thing in a show, but this just takes it to far for me. As Carissa wrote: ''Mercy vomiting over the midwife or the midwife peeing herself at the moment of her death.' Those things are just sick. I know that things are ugly and that it should be shocking, but this doesn't shock me. It disgusts me and makes me think that I shouldn't watch this show anymore. After all, a lot more people are going to die and I have no desire to see a repeat of those things. If you want to shock me, do it with some great plottwists, scare me, make me want to hide under a blanket or something, but don't disgust me. That just makes me not want to watch the show. I'm also not sure what they want us to think of Mary. Yes she still wore the necklace with part of the coin, but is that suppose to be redeeming? or suppose to show how sad she actually is? Because that is not working. Show me something more than brooding and half crying faces if you want me to believe that John and Mary still have something going on. I also find it hard to believe that John, who seems to be a reasonably intelligent man, still thinks that Mary can be who she was. Yes, yes I know, love makes people blind and all that but come on! I am trying to think of some good things, but it is hard. I know, I know, I should probably stop watching instead of just ranting on here. Ok I know one thing. I did like Anne and John's converstation. I did like John trying to defend the midwife and I did like the idea of the 'elder witches'. My rant is over. Because of the good things I will watch one more episode. One more, because I really want this show to captivate me and interest me. Finally: 'They don't bathe her, but shaving her armpits made the cut.' I noticed that too! That was just strange.
I loved this episode. Absolutely loved it. When the episode ended my first reaction was: But it's just beginning, nooooo. There were so many good things in this episode. Clarke saying 'I hardly know him' ((that, for once on a show with teens is the right response after knowing someone 10 days!), the flashbacks to Bellamy and Octavia (especially the look on his face when he walked into his empty apartment/room, that was heartbreaking), the fight between Bellamy and Octavia. I'm not sure if I'm happy with the group hitting the grounder, but on the other hand, he did stab Finn. I don't think Finn will die, that would be a waste of storyline right there. But, and that is what makes this show so interesting, he could. So much fun, so much fun.
The last season of AHS was horrible in my opinion. Bad storytelling, bad shockfactor and horrible horrible pacing. So far this show hasn't done any of that :). Maybe people will watch it when it has a few more episodes?
Well, that's my problem. The moment the show ended all I could think was, I don't know what to say. It wasn't too frightening or too gory, it just didn't blow me away. That doesn't mean i didn't like it or that I am not interested at all. Just that I am going to wait and see where the next episodes take me.
Well. I am not sure what to say. Did I like the supernatural elements? Yes I did. Was some of it just a tiny bit on the edge? Yes it was, but not so much that it was too much. Do I despise Mary? A little bit, but at the same time I am interested in what she will do next. Must be confusing to be all evil and then have your big good love walk in. I am not sure however if I actually liked the show. The first thing that confused me was the mention of an French-Indian conflict that had a duration of 7 years. Those three elements scream French-Indian war to me, but since we are in the seventeenth century here... Please let them be talking about the French-Iroquois conflicts or another conflict. Next, Tibuta freaks me out and not in a good way and the girl biting off her finger, also not a good thing. Maybe that was a bit over the edge for me after all. Honestly, I have no idea what to think about the show at this point. It shocked and interested me, but I am not sure if they can keep that up for more than one episode. I'll reserve real judgement for when I've seen more episodes.
