I loved the Bo and Hope flashbacks. I just wish they had more time together. As for Abigail, since I've seen the Days promo for the coming weeks I know she doesn't lose her baby...at least not in the way you would think. It puts an interesting spin on things which quite frankly is needed since the cabin storyline has been dragging.
Birth was probably the worst episode of the show. And that's including every episode so far this season. I suspected from how absolutely nonsensical the Camelot arc is and how desperately they're trying to ruin Emma's character that I wouldn't be watching the show much longer. Birth pretty much cemented that I'm done. Judging by the ratings, everyone else has the same idea. The Bear King was at least fun. And it was nice to see OUAT focusing on women for once instead of manpain.
It didn't have the impact expected but then I haven't recovered from the Doctor losing Rose!
Rose was the last REAL companion. The rest seem like just full in.
Disagree about Duke. He didn't unleash the troubles. The immediate cause was Nathan not letting him release the troubles in the Void and Charlotte choosing Audrey over Mara. We can go even farther back and include lots of really bad choices made by our heros that ultimately caused the unleashing. Of course Duke blamed himself. Anyone would. But even if he didn't, his reaction to troubled blood was reason enough to leave. Let's even say he could control that. If he'd stayed, he'd be ripped to shreds by now. Lisa's reaction is proof of that. So not sure how he could've stayed under the circumstances. But he came back as soon as he understood he could help. Audrey blaming him for leaving because she needed him and lashing out at him because of his reaction to Haley's blood is priceless in it's selfishness and hypocrisy. I love her but it is always about her.
It's not easy being me. I've always been a fan of Duke's. I've championed his character to the point I've been told I think the show should be about him and not the "main" characters, Audrey and Nathan, because I grew tired of it being about a love story. LOL I stopped championing him when he walked out of the fog, because that's not the Duke I knew. He never stopped fighting. This Duke just gave up. He didn't let anyone else's BS (whether they were being selfish or not) get in the way of his desire to do what he considered the right thing.That's my take on it. I don't really know him anymore.
I find Duke to be the most interesting, complex, and fun character when it comes to good vs evil. Not so much though when he's moping.
FINALLY! An episode about the characters on the show! If you completely disregard the rather horrible alien / Croatoan storyline (and we really all should) and the 1983 special effects, this was easily the best episode of Haven in 3 or 4 years. Something I haven't said in a very long time. This episode had a Season 1 or 2 feel to it that has been sorely missing. I'm probably the only one but I'm not looking forward to the William Shatner character. He has William and Mara written all over him, and those characters were a waste of time.
When Sherlock was using the machine to shrink wrap Clyde's food, why did he use such large bags? What a waste. He could have fit 10 in one. Sherlock, get off your butt and go buy smaller bags if you just want one per bag.I usually do computer work and watch this show. If it's a good episode I stop my work and watch. Last two weeks I just listened, this episode I've watched 3 times w/o anything else going on. The story line is more interesting than the first too. Hope it keeps up....
I absolutely detest Ashildr who might possibly be the most narcissistic, abhorrent character ever plugged into the last nine seasons. I think that I even now discriminate against that actress whose smug face and huge hairy eyebrows I hope I never see again. For Clara to die so painfully...I feel traumatized. I strongly wish the same to Ashildr who needs to die now.
Christine.......what became the bracelet Castle gave her and that she had so much cherish, no one has ever seen it.
I was sad to see her leave (and as I never follow the internal politicking and cast struggled on shows I like until they are over, I had no idea it would be happening soon). The thing that bothers me is that while her friends were stunned by her recklessness and the show was clearly trying to portray that overconfidence got her killed .... Her plan made complete sense in the world of Doctor Who. Finding a loophole is Doctor 101. Her plan SHOULD have worked. She knew that the Mayor had sworn to give her protection and that the mayor controlled the Raven. She also knew that it could be transferred and, as that one guard kept saying "why do they run, they always run, don't run", which implies that possibly this creatures weakness (there always is one) is that it won't kill you if you don't run from it. The Mayor's explanation of why she couldn't help Clara, didn't help either. She says that she promised them a soul but when they transferred the mark they cut her out of the deal.... Which is ridiculous as she apparently didn't make the deal for Rigsby's soul, just A soul, and if that logic is followed: if she removed the tattoo from him she still owes the creature a soul from somewhere, probably her own. Perhaps she cannot really remove the mark and made things up to explain why later? And if transferring the mark cuts her out of the deal, that would mean that the deal should then be between Rigsby and the creature as he is offering it a new soul now. But apparently that doesn't work either and Clara had to Face the Raven, which unlike everyone else, she actually did. It was a good episode, but it really bothers me that her death is attributed to poor judgement when in the world of Doctor who, they use loopholes like this all the time.
I have to agree - when it became - finally - very clear that this was the "Clara dies" episode, I was strangely shocked I didn't shed a tear. I think you nailed it when you said the heavy-handed hints as well as we really all know Jenna was leaving, made it very undramatic in the end. (I do remember being very weepy when the Angels got the Ponds!) Alas, this season has felt both hollow and forced . . . this didn't really redeem it.
