I also felt that their use of the wicked witch as this seasons villain was just a terribly boring choice. It didn't feel fresh or inventive. I understand a need for a replacement villain for Regina/Rumplestilskin but they could have gone about it in a much better way. Don't just reveal the uber villain laughing maniacally in front of a mirror.
Also, I'm glad they mentioned the fact that there were another 50 town members that landed elsewhere from Storybrooke. This was a huge town. By the end it seemed to shrunken to 20 people.
The point of Vulcan Simmons in Knockdown was that he was NOT connected to Bracken in any way and McCallister gave his name to Beckett as a distraction to keep her away from solving the case. To say now that Vulcan Simmons is a front man for a Bracken-run organization is very hard to believe. If they had known each other before Knockdown, McCallister would never have given up his name as a means to distract Beckett. If they had met after Knockdown, I can’t imagine Bracken being stupid enough to go into business with someone he knows Beckett to be aware of because that poses a bigger risk to him. Simmons knows how desperately Beckett wants the man responsible for her mothers’ murder. That means that if at any time a case against Simmons is built, turning witness against Bracken would be his best play. Maybe that’s how this entire thing will end; Beckett will have to settle for letting one monster get away with his sins (Vulcan Simmons) in order to take another monster down (Bracken). Maybe it will turn out that Bracken was so arrogant, he never saw Simmons or Beckett as a real threat to him. I await those episodes because that will validate everything that took place in 6x17.
Following the precinct end scene, Beckett and Castle are at home watching news footage of Bracken announcing his run for president which was good to watch, but what really sold everything about this episode and the progress made in terms of Castle and Beckett was that when Castle asked her to come to bed, Beckett took his hand and joined him. It wasn’t that long ago that Beckett would have said she’d be there in a minute and stayed alone with her thoughts(5x23, “Human Factor”). For Beckett to have zero hesitancy in walking away from potential leads on the JB murder case to take Castle’s hand is probably the greatest strive forward that we’ve seen from her character in a while and that was amazing.
agree with all that. I would like Jordan Shaw to make a comeback and get him in a joint effort.
Maturity has come very late for Beckett. She has never thought what her mother would like her to do.
Enjoy life or get killed in trying to get her killer!
I'm really upset by this episode. The show ended on such a hight note. I almost see the last 12 episodes as a past season. They tied up all the loose ends and gave the show the fresh start that it needed. I am flabbergasted that they would undo all of their good work and bring us right back to where we started.
Show's need to evolve beyond their original concepts in order to succeed. Gossip Girl, Ugly Betty, Hart of Dixie. These shows began dying on the vine when they refused to move the story forward and let characters move on and grow.
We as viewers graduated from storybook a long time ago. We moved forward and now were stuck right back where we started, only revisiting the other wold through flashbacks I presume.
A very beautiful episode ,Emma and Hook are so adorable . I am glad that Storybrooke is back .
My favorite scene was when Damon and Stefan realized she was onto them after she called to test Damon.
I'm truly going to miss Katherine. She was one of the very first real villians of this show and has lasted almost as long as the regular characters. I also think I'd rather have Katherine around than Elena.
I have no interest in her ripper storyline. I'm not a Delena fan anymore. I was pulling for them during the first two seasons but now I prefer a Stefan reconciliation.
Bonnie has never been written for beyond the needs of Elena and co. She's a beautiful plot device.
Anyone else bothered by the fact that while Regina is heartbroken over losing Henry, Snow and Charming seem all blase about it, like bummer oh well we can have a new baby now. Just abandoned our daughter (again) despite the fact that she never recovered from her first abandonment. Shouldn't they know that anything can happen in the Enchanted Forest and that if they just tried they probably couldve gotten back to Emma and Henry? Even Neal though of that and he's kind of an idiot.
LOVED the whole flying monkey twist though!
This was one of my favorite shows. Why does BBC America always do this with shows I enjoy. I hope another network picks it up like they did with Ripper Street.
Favorite Scene - Stefan and Caroline are stumped and can't figure out how to find Katherine and Damon's voice comes from behind the door, "Nothing a little locator spell couldn't solve." Classic funny, smart Damon! The show has missed you so much, D-man.
Eulogy for Katherine - Ciao, baby. If you weren't a shadow of your former sassy self, you would have been missed but you've become such a pathetic, OOC mess this season, it's a relief to have you gone.
Euology for Nadia - You deserved better, girl. At least you're not stuck on the other side with your horny mama, chasing her around while she hits a bunch of Silas doppelgangers.
Caroline's speech to Tyler - So Caroline's sick and tired of being judged and guilt-tripped for her choices? How ironic....
Ripper Elena - If it gives her a chance to have a voice, opinion, thought, etc. about her own life, great! If it's just another way to take away her agency and turn her into a plot device, no thanks. Seen enough of that in S1 - now.
First off... would it hurt them to add a "previously on the mentalist"? Its been months since the last one
Second could they have been any more obvious with LaRouche's death? And why would you go to some warehouse alone thats connected to some big conspiracy? Don't police have teams to search places when they get warrants?
