1. For me it was when they got bound as a circle. Just because it was pretty moving to see all of them agree to do it despite their hesitations. And it's a good foundation for what the rest of the season will include. 2. Contrary to what the review said, I have all the reason to trust Diana right now. I think she was honest during her conversation with Adam in the car. She seemed to be completely vulnerable about the situation and finding comfort in the person that she loves to expose that vulnerability. I think that she isn't aware of her father's plans in anyway. She is probably the only one who has the book (with the exception of Cassie) because her father exposed it to her so that his plans can be met. I think it'll be more interesting to see them figuring out what dangers they are faced with and to later see her battle whether or not she is going to support and protect her father. More of a story there rather than her being a part of it this whole time. 3. Yes. For her sake, she needed to do it because the amount of power was overwhelming her. I think it scared her how uncontrollable they were and after what Faye did, she didn't want anyone else getting hurt. I think she did it more for herself rather than for the benefit of the circle as a whole. 4. There's definitely a lot of things that are suggesting that they are. I want to see these things continue to build up though. I don't want to see them together until at least half of the season is over. It's always better with a lot of build up and with Diana in the picture, stretching the story will be simpler and end up better. 5. No comment either. Don't care too much for the character although I'm satisfied with the amount of screen time that she was able to get. We were finally able to know a little more about her because this character as hardly tackled in the premiere.
Still waiting to see Hilarie Burton's name added to this list!
I know Pete will be okay but it'll still be interesting to see them do what they can to save him. Really looking forward to the premiere next week!
I felt like the show had its good moments but other scenes were relatively "blah". I guess it's still figuring out its footing and I hope it gets better as the rest of the series progresses. You just can't resist catching the rest of it because Zooey comes out as too irresistible here! Too adorkable to miss out on what's next.
Liked this episode a lot more than the premiere. I felt like each story hit the right note! Lily was especially funny because of all her "Kill baby", etc comments. Looking forward to the rest of the season with this new addition :)
Personally, I enjoyed this episode. I got shocked with the change in the kid playing Lily though. Not too fond of her cause she doesn't come out as cute anymore but I think they changed her so that Lily's character could be included in dialogues now. They could've paced that transition more smoothly though. Gloria's humor might be the same premise they've been using since the beginning but we have to admit that it doesn't really get old. Sofia Vergara pulls it off and produces a lot of laughs with it.
After this episode I wasn't sure anymore if I wanted Barney to end up with Robin or Nora. What Barney displayed for Nora was just so genuine that it's hard to resist what they have with one another. As for the big reveal that Victoria aka The Cupcake Girl is back, I guess we'll just have to see where it goes although I'm still keeping an eye on for that yellow umbrella.
Loved this premiere! Everything that involved Barney and Robin was so good. Favorite scenes had to be everything involved with the tie metaphor, Robin telling Barney her feelings while he was on the phone with Nora, and Robin and Ted's conversation over cigars. Really, really good season premiere.
@May From what I can tell from the pilot, I think Faye is meant to play that in between of good and evil. It's easy to hate her because of how obnoxious she can become with her power but I think we'll eventually see more of her just like we did with Damon.
This was a really good pilot for the show. I haven't read the books and I think that actually helps me judge it as a show and not as an adaptation. I'm impressed with the cast because I felt like all of them really got into the character that they're playing and they did it well. I liked how the four characters from the circle that we were introduced to in this episode already show a distinct diversity between characters so we really see a balance there. I also loved the history tie up that this show has going on similar to The Vampire Diaries cause there's a lot to play with there. I think this show has a lot of potential and there are a lot of good plots to look forward to. The pilot did just what it was suppose to do.
