Reign Season 2 Episode 19 Review: Abandoned

What an episode ! & another great review.I loved Francis's attitude with Mary especially at the end .She needed a reality check and she deserved every bit of it. I really enjoyed Greer,Kenna& Lola together.Loved Catherine's line about wanting to tear Conde into pieces.although I like Catherine & Narcisse together like you said,Terri ,the chemistry between Lola & Narcisse is undeniable.And the undoing of wedding was spectacular,a great move.Really looking forward to next episode.

Agreed with everything you said. In my dreams it will have been Francis that undid the wedding but I think it will wind up being Elizabeth. I can't sit through another Mary speech protecting or declaring love for Conde...I just can't. I love the scheming element to Cath/Narcisse but hot damn the chemistry between Lola/Narcisse is unreal. I still don't understand what happened between Bash and Kenna to push them so far apart? Another great review...thank you

Yeah I like the idea of Francis taking that risk to finally get rid of him. It would be real ballsy and I'd like to see his patience and mercy run out. As for Kenna, she wants to marry a king so why her interest in Renaude? He'll never have a crown and I don't see him able to give her a better life than Bash did.

Agree on the Renaude thing Terri. And besides, he can't hold a candle to Bash in my opinion. His character and loyalty are by far the strong elements that attract us to him. And then there's those eyes.....sigh. I as well would love to see Francis' patients run out. Would love to see him kick the crap out of Conde and then send Mary to the gallows to await her be-heading!

It too think it was Elizabeth.

@ elena

Thanks, Elena! So any theories on who undid the wedding?

Avatar
@ Terri Clark

Yes! I think it might be Francis! It's unexpected, just like when he killed his father, king Henry. He's desperate right now. Francis is on the verge of losing the love of his life, and possibly his kingdom.

Too true!

I think it was Elizabeth. She never married on purpose and history dictates that on a few occasions she "staged" certain marital prospects just for the appearance of whatever alliance would most benefit her.

@ Terri Clark

I haven't crossed Narcisse and Catherine off the list but I am leaning towards Elizabeth being the person who undid the wedding. It also could be Francis though surprising he has every reason to do so.whoever undid the wedding,from the next episode's promo the fate of conde does not look good.

Another excellent episode-
1.Lily was in top form this episode.The way she revealed the cure secret to Damon was unexpected & fantastic!That last scene with Enzo was very sad & tragic-Love them together(no shipping of course coz that would be too weird for me).
2.Loved all the stuff with Caroline & Stefan-Liz's cameo was perfect but i
would've preferred it more it they didn't show her asking him to date
Caroline-That was a little bit too much,other than that,it was
heartbreaking to see Caroline crying for her Mommy at the doorsteps
while she walked away!Elena shouldn't have given her the real letter
at that time,she knew she would definitely destroy it at that time
& regret it immensely latter.
3.The delena melodrama was okay buti was kinda irritated with Damon's actions this episode.I'm glad Lily broke the news coz otherwise Damon would've dragged this secret till thefinale.Damon wanting to take the cure along with her was totally
expected-I called it several episodes ago.Now he will betray Bonnie to
steal the Ascendent from Bonnie & go to 1903 prison world to
retrieve another set of cure existing there,in turn releasing the
Heretics & Kai-Good luck handling that dude! 4.I feel sorry for Alaric,i usually love Jolaric but this episode,they felt really
bland & mechanical with zero chemistry-Sorry!!
5.I'm loving Bonnie after her return from the prison world-she stopped being a martyr & started to stand up for herself!It's about time!

Elena knew that if Caroline did not recognize the writing on the envelope as being her moms then there was no way she would open it. However Caroline burned the letter anyways. We all knew she was going to regret it.
Agree about Bonnie.

So I'm sure the whole katherine dying of old age after taking the cure doesnt really come into play now that damon's about to take the cure. Elena became a vampire only quite recently. Damon was turned hundreds of years ago. He should die of old age quite quickly if the writer decides to do the right thing and be consistent

in all honesty this season finale sucked I mean there was nothing shocking about it at all.no major deaths, not even a big battle to end of this season on a high note.And really ? Rollo opposing Ragnar again??? that alone doesn't make me look forward to the next season at all. at what was up with that bizarre whipping scene? That just kind of existed in its own little space.and all that crap in Wessex didn't even pay off in anything because King Eckbert wasn't even in the damn episode lol.yeah this was a very very underwhelming season finale and honestly its not even worth 5 stars it's like one and a half at best. I was waiting for Ragnar to stick Floki in the neck with a dagger or something but that didn't happen,instead we were left with a mega underwhelming "cliff hanger" to tide us into the next season. Wow and that awful footage of what to expect next season with Bjorn chasing a bear was also lame.

@ Ilk_vomit

The Bear is a symbol of Rollo. If you know the history, some of the men decided to join in the treaty and some decide to continue the raiding. The real Rollo decided that the jig was probably up. Some things only work once, and he was tired after about 30 years of fighting and wanted to become respectable, others wanted to continue the raiding. Bjorn will continue the raiding and we know Bjorn will be raiding in France. While waiting for the next season, go watch the movie the Godfather. Vito Corleone decides that he doesn't want to continue in the new world of drugs. It's too noisy and will call too much attention to himself. Vito knows the jig is up and he's going to have to become respectable. The other mafia dons disagree(continue the raiding). BTW Rollo's descendants end up in Sicily. Watch the meeting of the five families and the war and this is what it will be like only in the Viking age. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

that's more like it! now that they have put Damon in the "let's-get-human" wagon, I am OK with this cure thing...let's see how they play it out. I loved the way Stefan made Caroline realize what she was doing...humanity-free Car is for sure fun tough.

Daredevil Season 1 Episode 13 Review: Daredevil

This really is the BEST TV series I have seen in a very very long time! the actors killed it, the photography was amazing, the writing layered and sooo clever and the stunts 0 oh my god! Even my husband who hates comic stuff loved the series, to the point that he would be wanting to see the next episode at 1.30am on a weekday!! there really are just no words to describe the awesomeness of this series!

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 19 Review: Because

Damon doesn't have to go back to 1903 to get the cure for himself. Remember when Katherine ingested the cure? Silas drank from her because her blood became the cure and then Amara drank from Silas because the cure was in his blood. That's not to say that they won't do the stupid and go back to 1903 anyway. TVD writers can be both senseless and overcomplicated at the same time.

@ kamarra

It's not really possible. Katherine died because Silas drank from her.

Avatar
@ Niki

Katherine died yes (though whether that was from taking the cure or having Silas drink from her I never knew). But Silas didn't when Amara drank from him. Plus Katherine was a couple centuries old, which caught up to her, while Elena has only been a vampire a few years.

Shonda, if you're writing skills are not good enough, to write people off the show without getting them killed, please hire somebody. I know this is TV drama, but this is too much drama.

I honestly still cannot get over it!! He still had 1 more year on his contract.... It feels like we've been ripped off, we've been cheated! This show is all about MerDer... I mean the past 2 seasons were less interesting because we had less scenes between then! I was supposed to be about the triumph of love and happily ever after!! We were suppose to have another McBaby, and more pillow talks! I cried like I never thought I would cry if a character on a show dies.... I couldn't even help myself... And I know next week is going to be painful ... Watching them put Derek into the ground.. Watching them burry not only a character but 10 years of my life... 10 years of dreams, and hopes that as messy and painful love can be, well it is beautiful and powerful!!! I had a bad feeling with all the flashbacks but I was honestly hoping deep down that we will make it... Like Callie did after her car crash... That he would suffer massive injuries, that it will take him a long time to recover or even to wake up... But that he would make it! Ges!! Shonda just messed everything up!!! She just killed everything!! I'm done!! Next week will be my last time watching any new episode of Grey's Anatomy! I'll watch some old ones to remind me of how great it was, but that's it! I cannot watch the show knowing that Derek is never coming back! I mean this year, the only episodes I watched were the ones featuring McDreamy's appearances! Long live MerDer!!! Thanks Patrick Dempsey for those 10 McDreamy years! You made me hope and dream with that "Sparkling-eyes thing"!

I am sitting the show out. I have no great expectations cause quite frankly Plec has ruined the show. Maybe she'll dismantle the Originals also.I can't believe that they gave another season to such a low rated show. She killed it with the shippers. On the other hand Supernatural saluted their fan base with all kinds of wacko meta-episodes without caving into the shippers. But then Jared and Jensen pretty much rule the show.
