Honestly I thought what Maggie said was great. I'm going to be honest when you're not white, you always think of your race and how people interact with you. It is just like Maggie described, it's always there, sometimes its a low hum in the background, sometimes it's super in your face, but it's always there it never fails. White people don't have to think about their race so it makes sense that most of you don't get it.
much worse than the separation and all the other nonsensical distractions is the writing. There were at least three "homages" to previous episodes. Ryan & Espo fighting and reconciliation, the "wingman" picking up women, and of course the honey trapping. At least some originality. A five foot woman killing a six foot man with a knife?? Really. These were talented writers and actors. Don"t they have the courtesy to watch this mjunk before they shovel it off to a rapidly decreasing audience
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.
