I actually have found my blood *boiling* at watching the cowardly Joel these past few episodes. What a selfish, whiny little brat. I wouldn't be surprised if he finally comes to his senses, but not until after Julia has moved on and realizes no WAY can she commit her heart and family back to this fair-weather husband. When you have kids, you don't let something this minor - and yes, in the scale of "til death do us part" this is minor, especially given his emotional abandonment up to this point - cause you to just throw in the towel. I was never that warm to Julia up until the past year or so, but now I want to punch Joel in the throat on her behalf. And Sydney's and Victor's behalves. Thank GOD that Zeke found the right way to express his feelings - so many wrong ways he could have said it. I'm proud of his character and SO glad Camille wasn't just "over him".

Revenge Review: Who Am I?

I hate to say this, but I think the writers are going to go the GSA route with Victoria and Patrick. Genetic sexual attraction. If you are not around someone from ages 2 to 6 top experience the Westermarck (sp) effect that imprints someone as family and remove sexual attraction, it makes your brain unable to process them as off limits. Worse, the more similar the people are, the more they feel like the other person is their soul mate and are inexplicably drawn to each other. Messy but tall stuff. Happens in up to half of blind adoption reunions!

Once Upon a Time Round Table: "Going Home"

I think one thing we should be asking is whether or not Regina's redemption will even stick, because didn't she say that everybody will lose their memories because if the town never existed then the memories didn't happen either? if so then how is she possibly rendempted because she won't remember Henry, she won't remember anything else that happened and she won't remember all of her good deeds. It's the good things that she has done, combined with her love for Henry, that led to her redemption. Without any knowledge of those, I don't know who we are going to see after the jump.

I am LOVING Sleepy Hollow, and the cast of the mob show sounds great. As for Carol's exit, I think it was INCREDIBLY hypocritical of Rick, and Darryl, among others, is NOT going to be cool with it.

Jeez, Carissa, who peed in your Cheerios?
I really liked this episode. Mrs alex o'loughlin is right that it's the uncomfortable, real life stuff that makes this show so good. I have nephews and friends' sons Drew's age, and let me tell you - they are just as confused.
I read Amber's chat with Christina and the ring proposal totally differently. I feel like Christina's story *validated* Amber's: it was a little impulsive, they were young, and it just "felt right". Amber didn't look sad, she looked acknowledged. And with the ring, it really did seem like "what are you doing spending all your combat money!?". She's used to modest means and a $4-6K engagement ring will make you stammer.
I think Amber is being unintentionally flirty with the drummer and that may indeed be giving her pause. Ryan seemed jealous but also nervous, like he fears he doesn't fit in her world.
I am really nervous for Joel and Julia.
(PS Carissa I don't mean that harshly... you're just usually much more upbeat!)

Revenge Review: Forgive Me Father

I like how, to Emily, he let it seem like there was something there even though he wasn't sure himself. I am HOPING he had a little forgiveness when he saw that Em was distressed about Charlotte. Wonder how Ems will feel about the Father dying. Charlotte has been annoying me a little w/her attitude towards Em. Seems like only Nolan and Aiden still like her! Actually feel bad for her that way. Glad Daniel is back to being a spoiled, bratty ass. Story works better when he's less sympathetic.

Revenge Review: Forgive Me Father

Phew, where to start!! I think Aiden being back and on Em's side is wonderful. I think HE is the one who said no more to the romance though, knowing on some level he'll never compete with Jack in her heart (which is why he told her to stop about almost kissing him).
I saw sparks with Patrick too, but I do NOT trust Patrick one bit.
I wondered a little if Conrad had the accident on purpose - it's not like him to be so contrite but I'd be surprised if he didn't let Victoria in on his plan. It would seem suspicious for Em to all of a sudden be taking care of him. If I were him, I'd be suspicious of her motives.
For the first time (maybe second) since the series started, I thought Jack looked H.O.T. Majorly. When he was in the pool and laughing with Margaux, he looked like a totally different person and looked incredibly hot. Maybe as he's allowed some occasional joy in his life we'll see that more.

I'm surprised more mention wasn't given to the red bloody eyes zombie. There was a lot of foreshadowing with that. Rick looked at him 2-3 times - he looked different than other zombies, but I think Rick knew it was different and that it bothered him, but couldn't quite put his finger on why. Notice that Patrick died the same way. Will there be any differences between those zombies and the others? Faster? Stronger? Coherent? Definitely something up with the animals. I was expecting poor Violet to wake up as a zombie, but I suppose that's too easy :). I was surprised at my reaction to Beth's non-reaction to the loss of [?]. I guess she's a bit of the canary in the coal mine and her losing her vulnerability is sad. I hope Glen and Maggie find some birth control and think Maggie is being a twit about "sure, let's have a baby!". Not sure about eager new dude. Think he's a red herring. TOO obvious. Didn't know Michonne could smile, but glad to see it :).

Once Upon a Time Review: Only If You Believe

I lightly suspected that was Peter Pan. Peter Pan (in the stories) I think used to be a lost boy, so that was true and was foreshadowing. The lost boys seemed too good at what they did to just inadvertently keep missing them. I hoped I was wrong though :( Loved Hook's flirting with Emma. Wish Emma had said "our son". In fact, I wished for it so much that that's what I heard lol. I get why Rumple cried, but really don't get why he thinks Peter Pan can defeat him. WT...?? Maybe Robin Hood, Mulan, Neal and the other two will join Neal to go to Neverland? SO many questions!

The Bridge Review: Learning to Lie

I don't think we watched the same show, Anne. Of course they weren't going to kill Tate if at that time they didn't know about Gus. Anyhow, I too could not believe they "went there" re Gus. If this is 3 episodes from the finale, I'm almost nervous to see where they go. I think this was excellent.
