No spoilers ahead. I was actually surprised Littlefinger let Brienne refer to Sansa by her real name. Apparently the guardsman of the Veil were told that secret sometime in between the seasons. Sansa sending her away felt natural to me. Not only is she a stranger to her, but clad in armor, with Lanister gold on her sword.. plus Peter has kept all his promises so who can blame the girl. When it comes to John's actions the changes made from the book are to blame for making his getting away look so easy.I blame the budget. If you want to know why Aria was refused at the black and white door, go back to season 2 and re-wach her reasoning for not joining Jaggen Hagarr in the first place. A man remembers. What I don't understand is why you lost interest in Bronn for abandoning Tyrion. That was just about the most "Bronn" thing to do. :)
There isn't much Grimm could have done that would have been worse than the last two episodes, but I think I owe it to the show to mention: This week was OK - at least what the b-plot is concerned. The Juliette arc on the other hand has made no progress what so ever and frankly, I still don't care much for our veterinarian turned emo-hypocrite-hexenbiest. I was surprised that she didn't throw sleeping with Renard into Nick's face to push him away even more. I'm actually looking forward to next week. It looks like we'll finally see something happen.
Hold on, hold on. I'm still laughing. So the guy known for playing Jesus is now playing the Devil in a show featuring angels that can be seen for what they are in reflections or through a lens (i.e. everywhere) and that were created (sorry chosen) by the very same mystical meteorite the devil rode down to earth. I think I just found my new favorite train wreck. I'll be along or the ride.
What you say sounds about right for the overall theme. I don't mind the lack of clear progression though. The problem I have is with same-episode-consistency (or the lack there of). Especially when the show suddenly takes a few steps backwards. I have lost count on how many times the writers have Barry be leisurely speeding about and sub-doing criminals in a literal jump-cut only to slow him down later in the same episode - just because the plot said so.

Yeah.. keeping Iris out of the loop feels very contrived. Well have to see where they take it. What really starts to bug (-.-) me is that there is still no consistency in Barry's powers. Not even in the very same episode.
Oh boy.. we are really scraping at the bottom of the barrel for "wesen of the week" stories now. I'm all for framing devices not having to be spectacular but this was outright insulting.
The show established that the baby's cells were needed to make someone immortal.. We don't know how serious Allens condition was, but I'd say Sarah made the best of a bad situation and used some of those cells on Allan.

From the looks of it, the baby died and Sarah used some of it's cells to make Allan immortal.
Juliette's plot going dark didn't surprise anyone.. but the way the show went about it is really annoying. She can't be that much of a hypocrite. Not even going into detail about our Wesen of the week.. you could drive a truck through the holes in that story..
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.
