Not unlike reading a book and midway into it, the book is lost, all the time watching this unfinished show, now having no ending, was wasted and I'm pissed at the network and will not get hooked on another of their shows.
Watching Flint and Silver team up was awesome! I'm totally for an ongoing bromance, they're great together: Silver is probably the only one able to see through Flint's plans and hidden agendas. And Silver's cheeky humor is a perfect addition to Flint's cool badassery. Captain Low seems to be a good villain for this season and I'm curious how everyone will deal with him. Funny how Vane can't understand why Eleanor sees a villain in him. Or maybe he knows and just wants to tease her - as much as I like Eleanor when it comes to handling her business and putting some pirates back in their places, season 1 showed us she's totally emotional and irrational when it comes to certain people. Including Vane. Max, on the other hand... god, how much I wished Anne would kill her. Sorry, I find her character totally unnerving. Going back on the only two 'friends' she has at the moment, just to anger Eleanor? I understand she's heartbroken, but everything that happend to her was her own fault (which is also the reason I came to dislike her in season 1, she made one stupid decision after the other).
Completely agree about Eleanor, she's an emotional wreck. She's tough, sure, but I don't think Captain Low is going to take her too seriously. Vane teases her, yet I think he feels like he does right by her. There's too much history there for that partnership to work. I don't understand Max most of the time, but she's not going anywhere. The connection between her and Anne is going to grow deeper. Unless, she's doing that to spite Eleanor as well... Hmmmm
One of the scariest episodes this season for me. The hand coming out of the painting trying to grab Crane scared me and made me jump. It was nice to see Katrina working with her husband on this particular case, using knowledge from her past to fill in some of the blanks. Favorite lines of the evening: "Abbie: You can take the girl out of the 18th century... Crane: but it is a far more formidable task to take the 18th century out of the girl."
This show is a cartoon. Donny Wahlberg's character would be suspended, fired, or killed, and he shoots his gun more in one episode than most police officers do in their careers. Frank Reagan sits around like a fat toad, drinking scotch, and he has a constant scowl on his face like he wishes he was retired. Erin looks anguished all of the time, and despite the fact that she is touted as tough, it seems like she will break down any minute. The premise that the Reagan family arrests, investigates, prosecutes, and administrates every case in NYC is a joke. It is hilarious that you always hear them tout that there are 35,000 police officers in the city, but Frank Reagan does not trust anyone except his own family.
This show reminds me of another one. I'm waiting for the Smoke Monster to show up.
Beignet is French for donuts dipped in liquid sugar .But in French it is written this way Beigne .In New Orleans Louisiana they call them Beignet. I do think Patrick was not ready to lose Teresa in the shoot out.Therefore he stirred her away from the scene.I can see why she was angry.I would also be angry because it is her job to serve and protect even by putting her life on the line for others.

Well said. Great recap. I loved the same scenes. It may have occasionally felt pat and picture perfect pretty, but who cares? Just so much fun! I laughed several times. Juliette's nightmare about Rosalee had me absolutely transfixed. Holy heartbreak!!! I thought it was real. Nick's concern for Monroe came across loud and clear. Glad of that emotional urgency, cuz sometimes in past episodes Nick seemed a little cold to him. Did you mention the "you're back?" moments, when a few cocky wesenrein looked into Nicks all-seeing eyes? Gotta love it! Grandmaster Riken is a blutbad and Officer Acker is bauerschwein. Pigs and wolves on same council?
I think season six is basically to make fun of itself and to kick up the gay themes. Sue rants that no one knows the names of the band kids. All the Warblers are straight w/girlfriends? There's a macho out gay kid, a Karofsky bear-o-thon, including an actual bear cub? a hint at a young/old gay couple with Kurt and Walter (Kalter or Wurt) and a sort of cross dressing theme with principal Figgins? It's ridiculous, and eye rolling at times, and had me saying when is this craziness going to stop and they sing a song already? But it's their zoo. They can do what they want. At first I was confused and a little annoy with the weird Klaine obsession, the stupid Sam redux, and Sachel or Ram? but now I think about it, I can't wait to see what the hell they do next. A Becky Wedding? Wurt?The Glee transfer kids come backAlien abduction/crop circles (it is Ohio)A Virtual Reality Show?Inception Dream show?Flash forward show Glee kids 20th reunion?Sam converts to Judaism to win Rachel? Anything goes. And Music? the Who's Tommy. Pippin, Anne Lennex, Oliver, Kinky Boots, Punk week? 80's new wave, The Cars, The Kinks, Blue Brothers? AC/DC? I
Welcome to Sweden is actually pretty funny, better than many shows out there. 'The Middle' is unwatchable, but there it is still on TV. Agree about The Following, we watched about 6 episodes then they lost any grip on sanity.
Christian Ward was WASTED on this show. What was the purpose of allowing him to appear in the first place? So that Grant Ward can prove how much of a dick he really is by committing cold blooded murder?
