Sorry to see Pino go. I liked his character, though he was downplayed of late.
more "couples" story and this show will turn into a soap opera.
Great finale ...
In the books rape and far worse happened to a girl who was Ramsay Snows wife but she was a fake Arya. Same situation but that girl was cut out, but the story wasn't invented for shock. Hbo has always crossed lines like in the show Oz where it showed men brutally raping other men, not for shock value but to tell a semi real story.
You wrote in your article " But it was such a cop-out to have Jake completely forget everything he said to Laura."You TOTALLY missed what that moment was all about! He didn't FORGET ANYTHING! Jake overheard the nurse telling Laura that he might have neurological problems such as memory loss, etc...from his brain hemorrhage and how concerned Laura was about it.Doesn't it strike you as strange that he didn't have a "memory lapse" until he saw her talking to Tony outside his hospital room????He is TOTALLY PLAYING HER in the absolute WORST WAY EVER! The guy is a totally self-absorbed SLEAZEBALL!
She wasn't talking to Tony outside of Jake's room, she was talking to him near the waiting area away from his room (they were talking to each other while leaning over a railing which isn't visible to Jake's room). Laura never told Jake she was going to talk to Jake, she said it would be just a minute.When she got back into the room, she went over to Jake and started talking to him and asked him if he remembered what she said and he told her no. After that moment the nurse took Laura aside and told her about the neurological problems and that this is normal until they know the general diagnosis.
Doesn't make Jake any less of a sleaze! And I still say he's playing her!And what does that make his PRESENT girlfriend whom he and Laura had a discussion about the week before because he introduced her to his sons (he told Laura it was serious between them so he thought it was okay). Guess she's just trash to be thrown aside????

Not disputing Jake being a sleaze and I do agree, it's odd they never mentioned Jake's girlfriend once in the episode especially considering her claimed things were getting serious between them -- seems like it's a forgotten plot point.
Glad Jake lives, but Laura needs to move on with Food Truck Tony. Jake is a sleazeball.
LOVE Tony! I am hoping things work out with Laura and Tony, but I fear they are trying to put Laura and Jake together.
B+. Hated the Cary in jail arc. Not happy with Alicia in politics. But it was still entertaining. Missed court-action. Too much Canning and office intruiges. If Alicia partnes up with Canning I might stop watching.
Tired of Felicity. She and her romance with Oliver brought the season down. Want to see a soap? Go watch General Hospital. The best part of the season was Laurel's tranformation. Barry and the crossovers helped. But Ollie needs a real big tragedy to move the character to the next level. How better to do that then killing Felicity. Dug Dig and his growing family. I thought his rift with Oliver was justified and he was the only one who got it. Got it that Malcom is a bad dude and making a deal with the Devil leads to nothing but headaches. His instistance of not going with a costume shows he is grounded and is the only adult in the group. Malcom - pure evil. The fact he ended up on top shows why he isn't dead and is now the new Ra's. Thea as the new Speedy- Great. Roy taking off for parts unknown- our loss. Captain Lance- brilliant. He is acting exactly as he should act. Betrayed and heart broken. Is he ready for Sara 3.0? Can you spell coronary?
Great compilatIon Carissa! Best Episode: My pick is "Sara". It was so emotional and so captivating that it made me tear up. "Canaries" was a kick as* episode but I hated that they used Vertigo again. I would've more enjoyed some Sara fbs told by Nyssa.Worst episode: "Uprising" is my choice. The Malcolm redemption story started here and it ruined the whole season. WTF moment! I completely agree. No clue why they overshipped and made this stupid decision.Best Ch development: Thea and Laurel. The only thing that bugged me with Thea this season was her overacting and painful facial expression. Laurel on the other hand had a good arc this season and I love all the focus she got. Worst Ch development: Felicity. I hated the Origin ep it felt forced and boring, her interaction with everyone but Oliver was solid. She had some solid moments with Laurel, Diggle and the others, while all that whiny shipper stuff was truly annoying.Character that has to go: Roy leaving was enough. If they can restore Malcolm to the villain he was I doesn't want him to leave. It could be funny to see Team Arrow vs HIVE vs LoA.Best New Character: Anyone who isn't Ray. I really don't like him. He is quite obnoxious. Would love for him to not be part of LoT.
I agree. Ray was awesome, and Thea and Nyssa were the best parts about this season.
I disagree on 2 things 1 i really liked Ray and 2 Thea aka Willa is great arguably the best actress on the show
Yeah I'm not a fan of Ray. And Willa is an okay actress, but surely not the best on the show.But different people different opinions.
Dean was off on a case alone because for whatever reason Rudy called him and "begged" him to take the case. And since Dean had left the bunker to 'brood' alone, that was why he was on a case alone. Rudy, I believe has popped up from time to time so it makes sense that he finally showed his face. I had a feeling with "Seth" poured his coffee and Crowley gave him a look, that he would either become his 'pal' or be involved somehow. They don't do "looks" for no reason in this show. I'd like to see Cas actually start being a full on, 100% angel again. Wasn't he able to 'flash' from place to place whenever someone called or prayed for him? Now he has to drive around in a car everywhere he goes? And just because Dean had "The Mark" when he beat up Cas doesn't mean that Cas should've shown the beating. That didn't make sense to me. As for the Darkness, it's opening Hell's Gate all over again. Seems awfully similar. Same story, different time. Sam and Dean have to do something questionable to save one another. Result = some sort of apocalypse. Just the same story recycled again, only this time I hope they really open it up, and blow us away with their creativity. The universe is the limit when it comes to creating the characters from the Darkness. And yea I agree, God should show his face now. I was waiting a couple seasons ago when we met his gardner, that he'd show his face when the Leviathans came forward. Then we learn that God "gave up" and left man, demon and angel to their own devices. Now with the Darkness here, I expect He will have to make a return to battle it back. They don't really go by the "sacrifice one to save many" in their family. Think of all that could have been avoided had, pick one, died instead of releasing an apocalypse on an unsuspecting world filled with innocents. But if they did that then we wouldn't have a show. And while I like Felicia Day, her character was getting a bit cliche. They never write 'geeks/nerds' in a good way. I was a bit surprised that she was dead, but half expected it when she left the decryption-fest with Cas and Rowena. It was a bit too easy if you ask me. And while Cas is a bit of a dumb-dumb sometimes, he's almost slid back to when he first came to Earth, and didn't know anything. He's had ample time to learn how the world works and how to interact with humans in that world. Overall I give the episode a B, and the series an A-. All still very good, just with some holes here and there, as with most shows on TV nowadays.
All the Angels lost their wings so none of the Angels can fly anymore (that's why that have that sandbox portal to heaven). That's why when Dean prayed at the beginning of season 9 all the angels started coming to them via bus, car, walking.
Ok season two is coming up. Ah! Jamal is a homicidal maniac. Barry is not worse tha Jamal. Jamal killed Victoria for really no good reason. What, a hooker is going to spill the beans that the President wants out? She knows she's dead if she says anything. Barry has good intentions Jamel has none. I think Tucker lets Jamal in on how Barry was going to let him retire to the Maldives and that saves him. I love this show because I'm tired of all of the cop shows on TV. Can't wait until June 16th. Boy Leila spitting in Barrie's face after chastising him for running out on her was a great portrayal of a woman scorned. Great performance.
