Unfortunately, I have to disagree with the reviewer about the sexual abuse situation and how it was handled. I think that Murphy hit the nail on the head with the reaction of the Glee clubbers. Remember--this is a show about high schoolers. This is how high schoolers respond. People (especially children/teens) are uncomfortable with anything that is not "normal".... this was a portrayal of a real and common response. Murphy should take it a step further and have Will make sure that Ryder gets into some counseling. I loved Sue singing "Little Girls"---best sequence of the night next to "We Will Rock You". Santana is always a plus on the TV--I really wish we had more Kurt singing though. Missing Brittany and Joe also. Glee is a fun show that I enjoy with my kids. The topics recently have opened discussions with my pre-teen girls in a way that is helpful to explain things to them.
This episode was absolutely done with respect to all the parties--the students and especially to Becky. I appreciated the warning at the beginning of the show--because I decided not to let my 9 and 10 year old daughters watch it until after I did--and I deleted it before they could. It was too much for that age group (they love Glee). I was in tears during the choir room and bathroom scenes. Murphy did a great job with this episode; as did all the actors. This review is right on target Miranda.
Finally--the tie in with Cora and Rumple--she is the miller's daughter... who tricked Rumple out of her first born.... Regina. That is why Rumple was hell bent on making Regina evil. For Neal to be Peter Pan is plausible... but if he was just a Lost Boy--I would be fine with that storyline--it wraps up the open ended items of tonight--knowing Hook, sailing the ship, his other stops before he landed in the world without magic. Regina will always have some sort of trust for her mother--she is her mom; however, I so hope that she trumps Cora and takes her down... I want Snow to stay true to her heart.
At Jarrod: The boys will never have a mended relationship. They get to a point that they love to dislike each other. As with some family members--you love them but that doesnt mean you have to like them. Sam and Dean are good together--and they should not be separated again--that storyline is old. However, there is always going to be conflict with them-- they are family--and Dean never forgets anything! As for Cas-- Cas is just as important as the boys-- and I miss him. Misha does a great job playing him and his storyline has me intrigued-- it is all going to come together--Men of Letters, Naomi, the tablets-- I cant wait to see how it happens! -- Please do not bring Amelia back-- but Charlie-- YES!!! I think she would be a great addition as a supporting cast member--she is good for the boys. Oh-- and another episode with Garth this season wouldn't hurt either!
Sean, I agree with your review! As I was watching last night, all I kept thinking was--this is what SPN is all about-- the boys and their family. I loved how they tied all the previous "THEN" shots into the story line--it worked so very well. I do have a few questions coming off the episode-- Will the boys research the Men of Letters-to learn more about the key and exactly what the MoL was all about? Since Henry came to the future-John never learned about the MoL--so will this become a side story? I want to know where Cass and Naomi fit in with all this...there is almost ALWAYS a tie in for the characters-- I cannot imagine that this is different. And I want to know if there is lore or myth tied to the key--OH-- we need Bobby back for this!! I want more episodes like this-- it was pure Supernatural at its best.
At SMS-Sam was not whinny--Sam and Dean cannot have it both ways--they either stand beside each other in the fight or they part ways. We all know that when the brothers are apart things just do not work (RUBY?!??!) I am glad they both made decisions regarding the past year-- Dean being friends with a Vamp is just not Dean...no matter the situation. (Even though I really like Benny!) And it IS typical Sam to want a normal life...every season he goes through this (except the season he lost his soul!)I would like to see Sam grow out of this desire and accept his destiny. OH--glad to see Amelia gone! Cas.... This story line of Naomi is bugging me... maybe because I can't figure it out....so I am definitely intrigued. And give me more Crowley ANYTIME!
Once upon a time or person of interest. ...... Much better than Girls!!
So happy with tonight's episode. I do hope that Sams flashbacks start moving somewhere soon; they are not convincing me that this "normal" life was worth not even answering his phone! Love love love Deans flashbacks..... Even the leviathan were cool tonight.
I am a true die hard Supernatural fan... And I have watched every episode at least 4-5 times (with the exception of season 7).... This episode was the worst ever. The only thing I liked about it was the end.... I too forgot I was watching my boys and my favorite show. Please do not bring this story line back ..... File it away with those god awful leviathan!
