I loved Cersei getting thrown in a cell. Best moment EVER on GoT. Dany and Tyrion. Can't wait to hear their conversation. Sam and Gilly storyline I can do without. Weakest part of the episode. The Dorne storyline is also kind of boring. I had high hopes after hearing so much about the Sand Snakes. But ( I haven't read the books) they are kinda lame. Reek is so broken and scared, I knew he couldn't betray Ramsay. Poor Sansa, but she has turned into a fighter. She will win in the end I think.
I agree. I think Sansa, herself, will be the one to kill Ramsay.
That would be amazing Terrie! Fingers crossed ;)
My guess is that Sansa tries to kill him, fails and then Reek/Theon snaps out of it and kills Ramsay before Ramsay kills Sansa. That way Theon will be redeemed. I haven't read the books but from what I understand the whole Winterfell storyline isn't in the books so here the series can do whatever they want.
I am also very disappointed with the Sand Snakes, they are not doing their father's memory any justice.
I read so much online about how people were looking forward to the Sand Snakes. How awesome they were and what I saw was three young women with the fighting skills of, well, me. And I haven't been in a fight since I was kid fighting with my brother.
Poisoning your blade is such a dick move.
She probably got that from Oberyn, who also poison his spear which is why The Mountain did die.
Oberyn was an awesome character... the sand snakes are a nice concept... but they have spent no time fleshing out the characters or generally "visiting" the people of Dorne... thus far... I'd rather watch Oberyn Martell speak of Dorne than take the cameras there... biggest let down of the season... also disappointed by by the anti climactic death of ser Barristan Selmy...
Brace yourself, its gonna be better
Sam and Gilly end up being much more important in the books - they skipped a big part of the storyline that would lead up to that, but then Maester Aemon mentioned go south (presumably to "Old Town") so I think they're going to go there after all - just not sure how. Don't want to spoil any of it but they completely skipped a key part of how they are important so it will be a mystery.
I agree with the rest of the commenters. Usually the shows I like have reached a natural end when they die, but this show was killed far before its time. It was one of the best shows I have seen in years, and I do not understand why CBS did not properly promote it. I am going to really, really miss it.
CBS knew that whatever occupied this time slot would be up against the ultimate season of MadMen, where nothing could successfully compete. This single season of Battle Creek had the feeling of a mini-series, which may have been the network's intent all along.
Since even after the cancellation was announced, the commercials for this episode kept saying that it was the SEASON finale, I do not think that this was the case. Had it been intended to be a mini-series, those commercials would have been for the SERIES finale.
Not a bad show. Amusing political correctness; early episode where rich husband agrees to give up 90% of his money if he cheats. Many female victims who live alone in large homes, easily broken into and hidden in, no one has a gun (California and anti-gun Hollywood writers). Best of all, final two episodes each have a black female victim with a white ex husband, thus avoiding a black stalker.Oh, and when Perry shows up at Beth's car all sinister, she is timid and afraid; if she had shot him in the head and planted a gun, no more Perry to fill up episodes.
I think that Kimberly is crazy for coming into town, expecting to run back out with Theresa and Tate (really dumb name, that) off to California, Shane fixing it with the authorities there or not. This kind of treatment is why Theresa is the way she is, you know. Does Kimberly know or care who Tate's father is? I know she still hates Victor after all these years, but that really doesn't give her the right to run right over his grandson like Chelsea ran over Zack, metaphorically.
Actually, JMO, Theresa's issues are entirely about her parents, at least up until Kristen had Chyka steal Tate out of her uterus. Theresa has abandonment issues thanks to Shane deserting family for ISA concerns constantly, mommy issues due to Kimberly's apparently controlling attitude. She probably didn't even get noticed at home unless she was bad, and she had Eve to beat for worst child. Andrew is probably the perfect son, like Eric is for comparing with Sami. Theresa actually became what her mother most wanted her not to be, most likely because Kimberly kept trying to steer her in the opposite direction. Theresa hates her mother, she says it basically anytime she gets the opportunity. Tough love may be what they never stopped giving her, and that's why she's got so much of a bad attitude. No matter how you handle it, you're going to screw up with your kids somehow. True in soaps more than real life, but still...
I agree about Kimberly. She treats Teresa like she is 5 years old. She doesn't even think about Brady and wants to take his son away from him. Shane & Kim accept the bad behavior OF Teresa, that's why she acts like she does.Didn't they ever hear of "tough love ?" She doesn't think there is anything wrong with her behavior and will not change This has a lot to do with her parents.
I agree completely! What a fantastic final show! It makes me sick, though. I can't stand the fact that they canceled it. They never even gave it a chance. Is there a way to contact Netflix and at least tell them there's an interest in the show? They saved Longmire. Why not Battle Creek?
Battle creek was evolving into an amazing show! The characters were developing beautifully. The writing was set up to be fun. It was the perfect balance of action, comedy, drama and minimal violence. I would have loved for it to continue and am in hopes that Netflix takes it on. Pleasssse!
Great review! I have lost all hopes for Reek. I hope Brienne comes to Sansa's rescue fast! At first i thought "Great, another boring episode in this season" and then two of the best scenes of the show happened.. I cannot wait for next week!!
Indeed, It finally picked up half way through............
The second half of the episode really delivered the goods!
Paige, your bags are packed and shipped to Stanford, here's your boarding pass and the taxi is at the curb already waiting for you. Buh-bye!
Tate, Tate, Tate Donovan-Black?
there should be a season 2,they should give it another chance it grows on you.
