Sleepy Hollow Season 2 Episode 14 Review: Kali Yuga

Although this episode and last week's were essentially stand alones, I wonder if the network's procedural decision will come into play this season or not. The fact that they think that switching from serial to procedural will solve their issues still has me shaking my head. However, the fact that Hawley is now gone gives me some hope that someone is seeing that "more isn't always better". You can tell someone has noticed the issues plaguing the show because of how Jenny was acting as the fandom prompting Ichabod and Abbie to discuss their partnership. Those moments to were somewhat inorganic and it was as if the writers were actually telling fans, "We get it. We're working on fixing it." I'm at a lost on how to fix Katrina however. Short of killing her off in some heroic fashion or reincarnating as someone else, I don't know how to make this character not be a drag on the show. (I still say this character was miscast.) Last year they made her Ichabod's wife stuck in purgatory, which essentially did away with the teenaged angst storytelling that is predominant in today's TV. And it worked! Ichabod wished to remain loyal to his wife. Abbie didn't want to be a homewrecker. A man and woman as friends and partners with next to no chance of them hooking up - how refreshing! But now Katrina is out of purgatory and the show has decided to crank up the relationship angst and love triangles because we can't have a show in the 21st century without it. What the show needs to do to fix the Katrina character is to stop waffling on the Crane's relationship status. Either these two get back together or go their separate ways. But the relationship waffling is hurting my appreciation for Ichabod which I blame on Katrina.

Did Xo and Alba ever get to know about the letters Jane used to write to reconcile them?

I think it was kind of revealed that Jane had written them near the end of the episode.

Awesome interview! Can't wait to see Iris doing her own thing away from the boys.

That was fun! I was hoping we'd get a chance to get know Iris outside her relationships with Barry, Joe or Eddie. Seems like that change is coming, I'm looking forward to it. Great interview Carissa... Who's next?

Backstrom Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Dragon Slayer

What I liked about the show is that the team is not made up of your usual gorgeous, model-worthy actors. They looked like they could be real people, and each of them was a "misfit" in some way.

I'm glad Kurt realizes that he's wanted only because what he knows. I'm curious to see what he's going to do now that he knows he's watched. I feel sorry for him, he's a good guy but unfortunately made the wrong move and paying for it now.

I agree! I hope he can redeem himself someway! He's always been one of the supporting characters I enjoyed more so than others and I was kind of excited to see what may happen with him and Maureen!

Secretly I was hoping Mo will go for it but I was wrong, Mo slept with the other guy, not sure it meant something though. Kurt is going to have a major role in this show and he might be the one finding out what his new boss is up to, because there is something suspicious there for sure. He's after the big fish too, the question is why?

Hi to all the posters,
I have a story which I am finally allowed to tell. It is late at night in Southern California. Today is my day off, and I am going to play nurse for all the members of this household who have succumbed to the cold that has ravished this home. My wife is one of the victims. I therefore, have a few minutes to relay this story.
About 6 years ago I joined a private dining club at the behest of my closest golfing pals. All the members of my regular foursome and their families are members.. This is a very private club which is associated with several others on the west coast. There is no restriction to gender, race, or social status. You simply have to apply, pass the screening for criminal activity, and have the means to pay the monthly dues. The meals are elegant as is the facility. It is strictly suit and tie, and occasionally formal. That will explain how I found out how the wife of one of my closest friends was a paid escort. Yes, you read it right. One of my closest friends. The reason I can tell this tale, is that my friend has divorced the woman, and their child is now independent.
It was two years ago on a Wednesday night, celebrating with a few of the golfing buddies who had played in a charity pro-am with which I was affiliated. To thank these fellows for their charitable contributions (10K each) I invited them to dine with me at my club. I did not spare the expenses in thanking these guys for their generosity. These fellows are not personal friends of mine but had contributed out of the kindness of their hearts. We were in the middle of dinner when a gentleman walks in with a stunner of a blond on his arm. This gentleman who I know as a member of the club has been divorced for several years and was single at the time. The blond was magnificently attired in a gorgeous long form fitting dress. She was simply beautiful. I noticed her when she walked in but I actually did not see her face since she was going to another dining room. My guests enjoyed the meal and we parted company around 9 pm. I remained and went to the bar to satisfy my sweet tooth. The bar makes the best iced coffee with ice cream. I love the dessert. I was enjoying this dish alone when the gentleman who brought the blond in, passed by me on the way to the bathroom. I said hello and he returned the salutation. On the way back to the dining room he stopped to pick up a drink, as he was waiting for the bar person to return, I asked him how his life was going. He replied that he was still single and really didn't date much. I then complimented him on his date for the night. He told me that he and his date were meeting with a husband and wife clients of his, and he needed to make a good impression. I told him that he certainly picked the best of the litter. He then shocked me by saying that he pays for her company. I asked what he meant and he told me that she was a hooker (he didn't use the term escort but she worked for a service which clearly is famous for escorting). I asked him if there was more to a date and his said of course. He had sex before and after the date and could have her for night if he wanted to foot the bill. The bill was $2000 for six hours and $4000 for the night. I told him I am glad to be married and not go through that expense. He laughed and said he had little choice that night. The gentleman went back to the dining room and remained there for maybe 20 more minutes. I finished my dessert and proceeded to the bathroom and had a nice short conversation with the attendant who I had known for years. This club does not allow cell phone use inside. I left the bathroom and decided to have one more dessert. I workout almost manically and luckily have managed a taut body. So another dessert it was. I went to the bar and I saw the blond and the gentleman sitting at a table. The gentleman was facing me and the blond had her back to me. I went to the bar and got my second dessert. I looked over my shoulder and the gentleman smiled and waved me over. I approached the table from behind the blond. I proceeded to a chair on the gentleman's left and put my dessert on the table as I pulled the chair. As I was about to sit down I looked up at the striking blond and my heart almost stopped. I actually couldn't catch my breath for an instant. It was the wife of one of my closest and dearest friends. He had been married to her for 7 years and they had a son who my friend had adopted as a single parent 10 years prior to his marriage. My wife and I had dined, vacationed, and interacted as best friends with the couple and their son. I now was faced with an impossible choice. Do I address the woman by her name or wait to be introduced. I took the gentlemanly route not to embarrass the club member. She was introduced by a different name. I said hello and asked how she enjoyed the club. I had never invited my friend to this club, and I don't know why. She complimented the establishment and its elegant d├ęcor. This club is first class all the way with private covered parking and valets. It is impressive. The small talk continued for about 5 minutes, when the gentleman excused himself to go to the bathroom. At the point Sharon as she called herself for the evening, started to question what I was going to do. She said plainly that she had been doing this for once or twice a month for about 10 months. She usually had regular clients, but this guy was willing to pay the max. So she made an excuse about a sick sister and went on the date. Was I going to destroy her husband and their family. He was absolutely happy at the time and our families were planning to vacation together in Italy in a couple of weeks. I decided to keep my mouth shut but I threatened to expose Sharon if I ever heard of her activity again. I told her that I would use the gentleman of that night as my source for information. As I saw the gentleman exiting the bathroom, I got up and went over to him. I told him I was impressed by the woman and might be interested in getting a hooker someday. With his back to the blond he pulled out his cell phone and brought up the name and number of the service. I gave him an email address of mine and he within seconds forwarded the link. I told him not to tell the woman because I would not want anybody to know that I had the number. He laughed, we shook hands, and I left. I went home and did not tell my wife. We went on vacation together and interacted as couples numerous times. I checked regularly if a Sharon with her description was available. They said no but they had several blonds who would fit my needs. I never went on a date with an escort. So what happened?
On Feb. 8th of last year, we were celebrating my wife's sisters birthday at a really elegant French restaurant in the Hollywood area. The blond walked in on the arm of a politician who every one in the area knows. My wife, her sister, and my brother-in-law recognized the politician and the blond. The jig was up. I then told my wife and in-laws about the previous event. I apologized to my wife for keeping the secret, but I did not want to destroy my friends apparent happiness. My wife started to cry and she told me that my friend had confided in her that he was sometimes having difficulty physically connecting with his spouse. I asked why he did not come to me and she said he was embarrassed. The woman was now using the name Sheila, because my wife went over and greeted the politician at his table. They were introduced and my wife asked Sheila how her husband and son were doing. The politician was mortified. His hiring of a hooker was exposed. He also has a spouse. My wife then calmly left their table, came back and asked us to finish quickly, so that we could leave. After we said our goodbyes to her sister and brother-in-law, my wife stated that we were going to our friends home to spill the beans. My wife had actually captured the couple with her cell phone and was going to show the proof. We went to our friends home and told him everything. He was angry at me, but understood why I did not tell him originally. We stayed at his house for 5 hours until his spouse came home. We all confronted her and she knew her marriage was over. I accompanied my friend to a divorce lawyer several days later. My friends wife was told to leave the house (it was purchased from another friend of ours, several years before he met Diane). That is her real name. The divorce became final, last Friday. I lived with that secret for what seemed an eternity. It crushed me not to confide in anybody. I was deeply hurt that I had this knowledge. I almost told my friend many times, but I kept seeing his apparent happiness and could not bring myself to destroy that. My wife had absolutely no problem with outing Diane the moment she was discovered. My wife believes in truth and she felt our friend deserved the information immediately. So I and my wife had a part in ruining our friends happiness. Our friend is still one of our closest friends and my wife introduced him to several women. One of those women is now moving in with him and they will be married late this year. The wedding will be at my home and I will be the best man. My friend and I are very close and I also became a victim of his ex-wife's treachery. I kept a secret that was destroying me in ways that I can never fully state. I am overjoyed that it is over. That is why I have been so adamant about my intolerance and hatred of cheaters. That is why I criticized Grace so vehemently. I know what that secret can do in real life. Addendum: I placed a call to Ray (the gigolo) whom I had treated. The call had a dual purpose (he wanted more controlled meds) and I wanted some info. I asked him if he had any knowledge of how many women are in the escorting business in the L.A. area.. His response many thousands. From actresses, businesswomen, housewives, porn stars, and college girls. I asked him if it was difficult to find a married woman in her late thirties to early forties. He said that every agency had many women in that category. They make the best dates for presentation if necessary. I asked about money, he wasn't sure but a thousand per hour to 8-10 thousand for a day seemed about right. So Diane was in a business which was easy to get into and if fortunate to have a trusting husband, a method to make serious money.

Why do people that have secrets go out in public. People travel in circles and you really are taking a chance if all of your friends frequent those circles. I think maybe the reason your friend confided in your wife that he was having problem connecting physically was, he was looking for a reaction from your wife, wondering whether she might know something?
