Grimm Season 4 Episode 15 Review: Double Date

Much better episode than the previous one. The case of the week was easy to me since it was pretty clear the man and woman were one and the same. Come on guys ! lol.
Now Juliette and Nick needs to either get a grip or end ! She just strolled in Renard's apartment and acted as if he owed her . LOL, I mean seriously. He even tried to get some sense into her as this put him in a VERY awkward position but no, she didn't listen. I get it though, he can help her understand what's going on with her, but their history doesn't really allow for much. Well Renard needed her help and there were a few good facial expressions and lines thrown in. I don;t know if Nick will be laughing though...
Monroe as bait was hilarious. Interesting that the guys asked Rosalee first . Her and Monroe at the end had me cracking up, of course she heard that particular comment about a certain woman lol.
But Adalind was definitely up for some good ol' mischief. How dumb and actually funny was her idea to sleep with someone else and pass the pregnancy as theirs. A royal at that. She definitely forgot that they can tell if the blood is royal or not. My gosh she ain't too bright ugh ! The King sent Viktor away and stayed behind...why ? What's he scheming ?
Nice episode, good pace. AND DOUBLE DOSE OF FAN SERVICE WITH THE CAPTAIN !!!! Sure it got a bit bloody but bare-chested Captain Renard still does it for me !

I wonder if Juliette's Hexenbiestly brain is unconsciously clouding her judgment in regards to Zauberbiest Renard, like "I'm a Hexenbiest, therefore all Zauberbiests must obey me." Otherwise, she's totally just waltzing into her boyfriend's boss's house and expecting him to give her a room!

I know right ! That got to me like well come on in ! I think her persona changed period. Her Hexenbiest powers have changed her. She is more daring (too much maybe), more confident, less afraid.

I totally agree that this is probably be the case. The Hexenbiest side of her personality definitely seems to have a will of its own. It manifested itself early on by stepping in to defend her from the Tribunal guy and the Mantacore. Now it's starting to assert itself more fully, changing her core personality, like Emy says. It's probably also influencing her feelings towards Nick. In that scene from a previous episode where she puts on the wedding ring and her hand woged, I interpreted that as her Hexnebiest side saying, "Get this the *&#@ off of me!" I think a major theme going forward will be Juliette losing her core identity and then struggling to regain it and to bend her Hexenbiest powers to her own will rather than the other way around.

Vikings Season 3 Episode 6 Review: Born Again

I don't think Floki is going to die. I think he is based on a historical Floki who was the first permanent settler on Iceland, so he's just going to bugger off at some point.

Good call. I bet Ragnar knows who killed the priest, but uses Floki's ships for the first push into Paris before the falling out. The guy who plays Floki should be too good to kill off, and I hope he scurries away with Helga and giggles about some master plan with the gods for at least 5 minutes every episode next season. Maybe play into the fact that Floki is actually right. Mixing into the Christian culture turns out to be a pretty raw deal for the pagans, as we still mock their way of thinking to this day.

Goines' hairpiece though lmaooo ! I couldn't, same as you Henry, totally distracting since the actor never has that much hair !
Anywho, this was a brilliant episode. I guessed that Ramsey must have been the Witness and not the Pallid Man as the latter didn;t make sense at all. HOWEVER, I'm not sure. Olivia kept calling him The Traveler so I started doubting myself. It makes sense for him to be the witness, I just wish they'd said it clearly. His time in prison was awfully long. Though I loved how he handled his tormentor. And the passing of the years and what he did to preserve the timeline was really cool. Now we know why things didn't work out well.
Poor Cole, that was a rough journey. But I am mad since he's the one who put the virus idea in Goines' head. The man had no idea, wasn't even there for that. Definitely one of the things about time travel that pisses me off. The traveler knows things and inadvertently mentions them and set in motion events that could have been prevented !
Olivia, Olivia, Olivia. I wanna know more about her. I absolutely LOVED her voice ! So soothing. But one thing though, why doesn't she age ? All of them for that matter. And how many cycles has she been through...I wonder if she too is a time traveler.
Whitley and Jones parting ways was heartbreaking indeed. His realization that it may have all been for nothing was not nice. I get why Jones is staying, it's her life's work and she knows how she got there. But still.
Now Aaron still hasn't told Cassie about is encounter...
It was really interesting seeing the events from team baddy's perspective. It almost seemed normal. But we know better. And Cole isn't dead like Ramsey thought and this changes everything.
Great episode. Hope they get to explain the Red Forest phenomenon. I could theorize that when nature is touched by a disturbance in time such as a time paradox or time travel, it gets affected somehow. There was a plant near Cole when he splintered in that bar... Oh well, we'll see !

- I'm hoping that Eve hooks up with Cole. They need to give that poor kid something to do and blackmailing Eve could be just the ticket.
- I don't like that Sonny is unhappy. He needs to somehow obtain custody of Ari and get with Paul.

It would be a good storyline...Eve moving on from taking Jen guys to hooking up with boys her daughter dates. Although I wouldn't look forward to the stupid theme music that plays whenever Eve is in a sexy scene.

Vikings Season 3 Episode 6 Review: Born Again

Last night's episode was my favorite for the season, maybe of the whole series. I speak as someone who was considering dropping the show after the same dream came to Siggy, Helga, and Aslaug…supernatural doesn't work well with me…but last night was a key reminder of the actual adult complexity of Vikings..funny, feels almost silly to put it that way, but the character interaction, the thoughtfulness, and yes, even the feelings expressed were refreshingly "grown-up" in a way that too much TV simply isn't…for too many shows too little happens that is truly unexpected but plausible, and engaging…amazingly enough a show about Vikings and Northern Europeans set about 1100 years ago is so much better than so much else on the tube that repetitively drags its tired pointless self back week after week…you know? I'm rarely touched by most TV characters typical "tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury signifying nothing." This was different. We LEARNED something, some things last night, about these PEOPLE…sure, Viking people, and early Christians, themselves the great great grand-children of the "barbarians" who had overthrown Rome and then borrowed its Christian religion and culture…or at least tried to… But we LEARNED somethings about these people, and now understand that there's
even more to learn…when a fictional character on a TV show touches your heart there's something going on that,s worth exploring, you know? And YES I'll miss Athelstan, and Siggy, and well, WATCH Rollo, I think he's just getting started…I suspect he's a "late bloomer" whose own Viking career is about to really soar…its as if everything, EVERYTHING up to now, is apart from having its own value, setting up the real action…the rest of this series….long may it bloom! Enjoy,

Love American Idol. Simon Cowell had another talent show on Fox, you should have watched it and maybe they wouldn't have cancelled it a couple years ago. Simon a has been.
