I am torn. I really liked the episode. I would have liked it a lot more if the ending didn't have R O L L B A C K written across it in G I A N T L E T T E R S....This sucked the impact of the last 10 minutes right out. Might as well have all been a dream at this point. There was the usual thing where the writers could not give Barry's power any kind of consistency if their lives depended on it.. Barry not using his speed for the sake of the plot has become a staple in this series.
I sure hope the money they saved with this makes for a hell of a finale...
The 100 defends it's top spot among young adult shows yet again. The cynic in me is a little annoyed that ALL of the regulars survived a missile strike.. but hey, I'm willing to suspend my disbelief once more because I actually like most them. Especially Indra. Though she's pushing it.. what does it take to kill that women? :) Kane stayed very rue to his character this week. Opening Abby's eyes to her hypocritical judgement of Clark and all, thus he continues to be my favorite.
Yeah, that Reverse Flash suit.. not my cup of tea either. What I would like to know is how fast/slow Barry will be next episode. The writers certainly don't. There is no progression of his powers. The graph looks more like a roller coaster. One scene he moves fast enough, time stands almost still for everyone else, the next he gets surprised by a grenade that takes seconds to go off? Its all inconsequential in the end, I know, suspension of disbelief and all that, but they could at least be consistent within the same episode.
This was a good episode. The best parts were in the last 5 minutes, but I can't say the rest wasn't entertaining. Nick placing the water-rifle in the closet with all the medieval weapons was funny,and who did not like Adalind getting her butt kicked by Juliette. I'm glad she finally reveled herself to Nick. We'll have to go to through a Nick-in-denial-trying-to-fix-it-episode or two but I believe he will eventually accept Juliette's new form. Honestly her being wesen makes the whole show a lot more interesting. They stuck with the damsel in distress plot lines for Juliette far to long anyway. Ladies and gentlemen - introducing Juliette Silverton! Veterinarian by day, Hexenbiest by night. Kicking wesen butt left and right, throwing knives and taking names.Get ready for some action!

I still can't stand Enzo. But the episode still managed to impress me. The handled Liz's passing well. My one nit-pick would be Elena and Jeremy lightig a blunt with a gasoline lighter.. add to that enhanced hunter and vampire senses and I can only imagine how gross that must have tasted..
I liked this one in general. Especially them killing off Chase, I could not stand him.. What I didn't like is how little of a fight Thea put up when she realized that Chase was a bad guy. I mean all that training and we didn't get 5 good seconds of a fight? Felicity's talk with Laurel seemed a little out of line to me too.
I enjoy Sleepy Hollow for the campy mess that it usually is, but if they make me spend almost an entire episode questioning the common sense behind the main characters actions, then I have to say - enough is enough. That's without mentioning how jarring of a concept we were presented here to begin with. The Fenestella suddenly being a thing? A magical cube? Solid, but not solid magical hologram Jefferson? Zombie guards? Did they pull that stuff from a hat? I'm with Henry on this one. This was pretty bad.
That's true. I might be a little biased there.
"Wesen" is pronounced 've:zn'. You should be able to find it in German dictionaries; meaning "creature" or "being". I AM aware, yes. As I recall it, that happened before German was a written language, like 1000 years before the time of the Brothers Brothers Grimm. But I'm not sure, it's been a while. All they read in the show is old high German or plain high German though and that should be pronounced the same. I didn't mean to make this into a linguistics discussion by the way. I'm sorry if I poked you the wrong way.
