I don't understand why Nick just can't kiss Adalind again and make her lose her powers...rt...he kissed her...she bit him...getting his blood into her system.....why they didn't try that 4 Juliette...maybe I missed a scene where they may have talked about that as an option. Nick and Adalind are a real family now...and it is totally awkward...I'm still pissed at the writers 4 making Nick raise his rape baby...I mean if Adalind was the Grimm...and Nick was the Hexenbiest...fans would be in an uproar....it's so icky and wrong....but I'm going to just let it go...because it is fiction...and focus more on the up rising. Nick should ask Adalind about the marks....she is wessen after all...and she spent some time with the royal family....maybe she knows something....or better yet the Captain...he is a royal, and working with the resistance. Captain Renard is pretty cold...letting those Marshalls go off knowing they wouldn't make it out of Portland alive....and he seriously needs something 2do...besides sitting behind his desk. Or standing outside of his office. I thought it was Juliette in the cage....but I heard the writers at comic-con said that she is really dead....and there is no way she is coming back...I Never liked Juliette 4 Nick...I didn't understand why he liked her...but I liked her Hexenbiest story-line...it felt like she was finally getting put 2 some use...and she dissented so fast...and now it's just over. Oh well...I like this season so far.
We don't know the rules of magic, as it were. It's possible that the blood of any particular Grimm can only kill a 'biest once. Also, it's possible that Adalind may have gained an immunity to Nick's blood because she carried his child. This is something they should probably clarify at some point. I completely agree that there is a huge elephant in the room that the writers have utterly neglected to address in that Adalind absolutely raped Nick. You're right that were the gender roles reversed there would be a huge outcry.
Loved this episode and loved Lynn! Hope she gets to stick around for a long time. Since the actress, Sarah Carter, does not live in Hawai'i, I doubt we will see her at Ohana gatherings unless she is also in a storyline for the episode. I hope we hear reference to her from time to time so we know Steve is still seeing her (and I would love to see Danny interact with Lynn!) I won't say there was instant chemistry between the characters, but their was an easiness to their interaction that made it obvious Steve was enjoying himself before the "run for your life" events started. While looking at the selfie, I got the impression that Steve was reflecting on his past relationship and was letting it go. IMO, Catherine will probably always be the passion of his life - but sometimes that passionate lover does not make the best wife. If Catherine comes back, will Steve honestly be able to trust that she won't pull a "Doris" again and run off into the sunset for another mission, leaving him alone and waiting again? Eventually, excitement and passion wanes in most relationships, and trust and security take it's place. Would Steve ever be able to feel that way towards Catherine, no matter what the reason for her leaving him high and dry - twice. Not to say Lynn Is his forever mate, either, but at least her presence in his life right now is helping him to see that this is life after Catherine.
Alex didn't shoot Ryan, he just said she did to buy time from Liam.
What Noah says in his book doesn't mean it is true. This is a very shallow view on what writing is all about which suddenly leads to Noah being a dick and Alison a saint. Come on now..
This episode has been a reward for suffering through the peter pan/frozen storylines. I am fully invested in Emma's plight and I am excited to see what happens next.
Oliver and Laurel worked together flawlessly in those five months when he was out of town with Felicity. (Maybe because it was Felicity working long distance with the Team and Oliver knowing nothing about it.) The rest of the year Oliver was either trying to stop Laurel from fighting or telling her to get more training. Oliver admitted he can't blame others for keeping secrets from him, except he can when it endangers other people as when Sara was running around cray-cray killing people and they could have caught her but Laurel didn't want to tell Oliver because she didn't want his judgey face. Oliver and Laurel are toxic as lovers and as crime-fighting partners.
I about lost it during Stewie's "pickle smoocher" comment.
I don't know how it was where you live, but where I live, when Helen came to her senses and threw Margaret out, there was dancing in the streets.
LOL, I like that, sojourner. That scene made me wonder how Bruce Butler put up with this witch for so long. He, of course, is no peach. Will Helen still get money from her father? Because I doubt she'll be seeing anything from the mother unless they reconcile, which is possible. Anyway, for now "Ding Dong, the witch is dead."
That speech in the hallway was terrible. Laurel's arguments didn't make sense to me. Like seriously, did you guys listen to what she was saying? "Why did you tell me abut Thea 7 months ago." What that would change exactly? She would do the same thing anyway. Or "You would never have told me that there's a way to save my sister" so resurrecting one year old corpses is saving? "I didn't tell you because I knew you wouldn't approve" and that makes everything better? This is just so bad... and the funny thing is that at the end she was complaining that nobody is thinking about her, and that Oliver doesn't care about her family. Seriously? So what he was doing for the past 3 seasons? It was always about Lance family.
I thought that the funny thing in that speech was that Sara is running around killing people, Thea is lying in a hospital bed because Laurel kept it a secret, Oliver is worried that Sara is trying to kill his kid sister and probably feeling guilty for bringing the Lazarus Pit into her life, Quentin is dealing with his feelings about what Sara had come back as and whether he should "put her down", and Laurel is all "you never think about how I feel!" As for not caring about each other's family, Oliver caring too much about Sara is how they got into this mess, and Laurel just re-traumatized Thea by taking her back to Nanda Parbat where she killed again.

I agree with most of your review to a point. Jessica and Aubry are most likely not long term just because of what show runners have said about his ambitions. Her past will get in the way of that and they probably wont go further than that( and they don't need to, Bones does too much pairing up of people that they don't need to). As far as television in the room goes I believe both Booth and Brennan compromised on that, she only leased it. Brennan was notorious for not having any tv sets from beginning so I like the fact that she at least was willing to see if it works out( we all know that tv set will eventually be gone). Booth and Brennan and their lack of romance, well I have gone on and on about this too and yes it would be nice if they did more of that but from the absolute lack of anything from last season to at least Booth and Brennan being flirty with each other I will take what they have given us so far. That first scene was hot even without a kiss( I am not sure why they haven't kissed much but I believe there is something in writers room or production room that says we don't to see any of it anymore. its as if they are saying we married them what else do you want. Here's the point where I would tell the Bones writers and producers you have skipped most of their romance we should get a little bit more of what you skipped. I am bothered by Bones not acknowledging their wedding anniversary mostly because the Seeley Booth we fell in love with would remember it and do something romantic) I loved the fact they were really partners in this episode and I believe their impersonations were meant to be bad not intentionally that. I don't care how Bones starts their episodes and actually am very impressed that they can still be creepy with their dead bodies. All in all they are having a much better season so far and I am pleased with what they have done
I really enjoyed this episode. The writers and creators of the show have never shown us much physical romance between b&b what we are allowed to view has always been scenes that implied itimacy to follow. Maybe that's why we continue in hopes of more to come.....
No they haven't but it doesn't mean they can't. David and Emily have proven their chemistry time and time again and even one love scene wouldn't hurt them especially now that they are in their 11th season. On the other hand there is more to Booth and Brennan than that and we don't need to see romance all the time but a little wouldn't hurt. Like I said this season has already had more light heartedness to it which is welcome and at least I feel like they love each other which didn't seem to be the case last year Whether they ever do more or not Booth and Brennan are still the best
