I like the poster. But for sure it looks like Caroline is end up alone with no men besides her and the single men are out there on their own. Elena and Stephan holding hands mean that tey are suporting each other for the loss of Damon so maybe they are running to look for help to bring them back from wherever they are.Havent you all noticed that there are more men than women on the main cast of TVD? I mean there is always the same women Bonnie, Caroline and Elena. But new men are being added to the main cast, like Enzo and Alaric this season. Why dont Julie Plec have a way to add a new female to join Caroline, Elena and Bonnie.I do not mean another doppleganger cause we had of those enough already but a new vampire female character so it can be at least 4 women and not always the same 3.I would like another female vampire to be on this show, things can get interesting
Who the hell is Stephan?.....
Be nice, Miss Mystic falls. Should be Falls. We all make mistakes. :-)
I liked the poster , it's different this time ,everyone seems running and I loved that Mystic Falls clock tower in the poster . I think Elena and Stefan together to stand by each other after Damon's death or because they're going to work together to find away to bring Damon and Bonnie back , but nothing romantic for sure.
Favourite scene: Wendy and Nero. I laughed so hard when Wendy suggested they tell the school she was the nanny and Nero was the gardener. Least Favourite: Any scene with Juice. What is wrong with that boy? Gemma gives him an out and he calls Chibs, even though he doesn't say anything. To top it off, he goes back to Wendy's place! WHY?! It's like he wants to die. If that's the case, just walk right up to Jax and say "Kill me"
If married on 7/6 I feel they may be signaling end of Castle at seasons end being as they are contracted for 7 years. I would be sad to see it end as all must.
I think that Stefan and Elena are together to deal with the losts of Damon and Bonnie. For me, they both moved on from their history. Elena looks so desperate in the promos and Stefan is with another girl to forget his pain.
Initially, calling this a postmodern love story didn’t make much sense to me. I am used to think of postmodernism in terms of the arts, literature, and philosophy. But, postmodernism is skeptical of traditional models that claim to be valid for all groups and that could apply to marriage. Neal and Grace started in what seemed to be the traditional marriage with the traditional roles for husbands and wives. Now Grace is questioning that model. She wants to redefine their roles. She wants more independence and freedom. She feels confined. When she gets drunk and the Neil wants to take her home she responds sarcastically with, “where I belong?” When Neil gets upset about the nude photo, her response is, “So I need your permission?” Grace seems to resent Neil for the years she lost raising a family and making a home (would a loving wife and mother consider them lost years?). And if so, why would she blame Neil. He has supported her in everything except the nude photo and he eventually even accepted it. There must be more to the story that I am not seeing.

Exactly. You could have saved me a lot of typing. :-)
I did see the clip. That she went to therapy before learning that Neil knows is a good sign. It also helps fill in the gaps of where she has been when people have assumed she must be off with Simon. I think what you said below nailed it. Her self esteem has suffered greatly over the years. I think men naturally assume that a beautiful woman understands she is such, but if Neil put work first (in her eyes) then it makes sense. One of the major issues between men and women is that men think doing odd things like putting air into his wife's car tires shows that he loves her. To her she sees him avoiding spending time with her and fiddling with the car. Communication between the sexes is extraordinarily tricky.
My response is: there are 18 years worth of their lives we know very little about. We don't know that Neil was always supportive of her having a career. Perhaps his idea of a mother was one who raised their child from home. There is far too much we don't know to assume anything about Grace's actions throughout the years (not working, etc.).
Thank you for your insight. Even your last comment has me reflecting on my life and making me question myself. That's what is so amazing about this program. It's outrageous and entertaining but more importantly, I think it's had a incredible effect on people because it started a "conversation" on these issues and made people question their relationships with their significant others.
Have you seen the clip? I'd be curious to hear your opinion. I suspect that the majority of the other posters are men and am curious as to a woman's opinion about Grace and her therapy session. Thank you for your work. I have found your reviews insightful and entertaining.
The therapy session is a good sign. But (there always seems to be a but) the muddy shoes are troubling.
She said it was at a different location.
Is there any chance Grace muddied her shoes at the house where Neil saw her with Simon?
If it was earlier, why would she meet Simon at the house where Neil saw them since the muddy shoes seemed to cause her to experience some guilt? If it was later, Neil had acquired Simon's phone and it would not have been easy to arrange a meet until Simon reacquired his phone. I seem to remember that Grace tried to contact Simon for a date while Neil had his phone, Neil gave a suggested date, and Grace said Great, or something like that. I don't know what happened since Simon never got that message, but Grace was still happy with her secret meetings with Simon.
I don't think the shows represent guilt, but rather this different side of herself. She thinks if she stops seeing Simon and wipes the mud off of the shoes, everything will go back to how it was. She's not reveling in the affair but perhaps who she became as a result. Or something. LOL
I think you are right. There is something within her, connected to the affair, that she doesn't want to lose.
Ok I saw the clip and I am so irritated. Why, because the therapist had to remind Grace that she wanted to repair her marriage. She asked her what she wanted and Grace said I don't know. Then she says she doesn't want to get rid of the shoes because maybe of they way they make her feel which is a part of her. An adulteress. Whay to go into things half hearted. I think Neil is saying We're done to Grace because she can &(*() or get off the pot. Tell you boy toy to get lost and get serious or get out.
She broke up with Simon that Tuesday
I suspect that this show struck a chord was a lot of men here, maybe the women also, but they haven't been as verbal about it. Somewhere along the way, I said that I basically was Neil and on the communication issue, a lot of men see putting overtime in at work as an act of love.
You're kidding right?
Why wasn't Grace able to work from home all these years ? Was it that she was just plain lazy and liked the good life and times to much, she sure had the opportunity with the schooling before getting married so seems to be a big gap on commitment in marriage.
There are women that work out of the home and still raise a family. That is what Grace is doing now. Didn't you just dis them? I say "Working mothers of the world unite!"
Like why didn't she finish her education before getting married, or get married and finish her education before starting a family? Was Anika planned... My guess she is rethinking a lot of her earlier decisions.
Hi Carissa, well I think it is about time for me to partially vent. I watched tonight's new satisfaction clip, and that precipitated this response. First let me give you a little of my family history. I went to a fine university and played football well enough to enjoy a 32 month pro career (those nasty knee ligaments). After graduation, I applied to medical school, and was accepted. I attended 7 months a year until my playing days were over, and then full-time. During my third year of med. school I went back to my university for the homecoming game. My fraternity was sponsoring the festivities. At one of the parties that weekend I met a ridiculously beautiful college sophomore (a 5'10" raven-haired Italian beauty). I was smitten. It turns out she actually attended a pro-game 2 years earlier in which my mental error cost my team a touchdown. She recognized my name because of the derision it created that weekend, years earlier. My wife graduated and went on a architectural fellowship. I was a man in pursuit. She agreed to marry me 5 years after we met. We have been married 20 years and have 4 offspring (3F, 1M). My wife and daughters (18, 16, 13) share one absolute trait. They have a full understanding of their self worth. They are dependent on neither male or female approval to adjust their goals and determine their own futures in life. This brings us to the Satisfaction storyline. Grace has been unhappy, she is unfulfilled. Neil apparently is the sole determinant of her career path and achievement. She apparently has been in some sort of physical or psychological stasis, since her marriage. This is entirely Neil's doing. Grace is incapable of exercising any degree of self determination. That is her complaint. Let me use a profound medical term, Bull---t!! Grace has equal fault, and her sister has alluded to that, when she said that she was turning into their mother. Grace has been setting up homes for showing them, prior to sale. Some application of design and planning is involved. In fact, Neil's boss bought one of her homes. I imagine (after asking my wife) that she was making between 1 and 1 1/2 thousand a week a for that duty. In the latest clip, she indicated that she frequently used these showings to bed Simon (no risk of discovery here. right?). Simon charges $600 an interlude. If Grace saw him once or twice/week , she was essentially working for her prostitute. Grace went to Simon's house initially (to get bedded). She did not go for psycho therapy or mental re-awakening. She went to commit adultery, what followed as a consequence happened out of sheer luck. It will be interesting to see, if we are allowed access, how truthful she has been with her psychologist. At this stage, if Grace has another Simon session, I would hope Neil has the self respect to jettison her as a lost cause. Neil knows Grace knows about his discovery of her adultery. Any future association with Simon is to rub his face in it. I believe Neil should continue what ever assignations he desires. They should cease only when Grace discovers them or he no longer desires them. Sometimes a little pain in reverse, helps to reinforce awareness of what trauma she inflicted on her husband when he personally discovered her in an act of betrayal. Grace's pain at the moment is her feeling sorry for herself at being discovered, not at the physical and psychological damage she did to Neil. Grace really needs to feel that she could lose everything. It is Grace that needs to fight for this marriage. Neil has stomached enough pain, and self derision. I know that my feelings are probably too strong, but Neil's activities in their marriage were not deserving of what Grace laid on him.
I don't personally know of anyone who's delighted by the new poster. It was a huge letdown.
So what kind of poster you had in mind or what character you wish the poster need to have?
I'd rather the front three were Oliver, Diggle and Felicity. I don't like that Diggle was pushed to the back. That alone would have improved the poster, but overall, it's just not very dynamic.
hahaha 'good with his mouth' is not kissing (in the traditional sense)
I cant believe they didn't include the Weather Wizard who is the first villian The Flash encounters and is the one in the previews for the series...Huge Snub to Chad Rook
Number 7's facts are wrong the first time we meet a shapeshifter is season one episode 6. Someone needs to bone up some more on their supernatural knowledge.
