It was a good episode, I don't mind Maleficent and Ursula but Cruella doesn't belong. She never had powers she was just an evil bitch that wanted to kill puppies for a coat and the person playing her I dunno irritates me, so not sure how long I will be able to stand her. But aside from that it was a good episode. LOVED the one liners from Regina again, Lana is masterful in her role as Regina, she has the way of have just enough bitch and heart but still crack you up with the one liners. Like when hook said "Nothing the savior and Evil Queen can't defeat." and she comes back with "I think we can drop the e word by now" and it's true she really isn't the Evil Queen anymore, she might still have evil in her, who doesn't look at Snow, but she isn't the Evil Queen anymore looking for people to hurt and destroy...that's Gold's job now.
I think Gus is a funny name.
I'm interested to see if Negyn has already been there. Maybe that's why the congresswoman wanted Rick and the group there - because they are fighters and can fight off Negyn.
All i got to say is another episode without Tom... pfft. This episode didn't do it that much for me, other than creepy Tracy. Liz got off too easily off that Detective's case. I wish Red wasnt always the all-knowing Red that he is, but guess then he wouldn't be this good at what he does. Samar and Aram's scene. phew. Dude's got it bad!
Such a cliche to make Harvey & Donna a couple, the boss & his assistant....yawn! This show could have been so very special from the beginning if ONLY they had the nerve to pairHarvey & Mike together. It had all the ingredients, interesting storyline with so many possibilities & of course the natural chemistry between Harvey & Mike. Their relationship wouldn't have needed to be the main focus, just a part. I think the writers would have been surprised at the level of interest from many different people, there's a reason why in fanfiction they're a couple!
Love that Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes are engaged! It's a believable and gratifying development. The ongoing troubles of Anna and Bates bore me to tears -- when their scenes come on, I use the time to hit the restroom. I did not like that Isobel sent Lord Merton away. His sons were horribly rude and mean to her, so why on earth should she give them what they want -- for her to end her engagement to their father? That only hurts Lord Merton and herself. Why reward bad behavior? As for her not wanting to come between Merton and his sons -- now that they've demonstrated they couldn't care less about his happiness, now that they've broken up his relationship, does anyone really think holiday dinners are going to be pleasant family affairs for the Mertons? The damage is done. I am very sorry to see Tom go and hope he'll come back. Also not happy to hear about Rose and Atticus heading off to New York. What will DA do without the young blood and happiness they brought the show? Plus, I like Lady Sinderbury, and their move is sure to mean less of her.
I SOOOOOOOOO agree about the Bates' story arc--they're milking this for all it's worth and it's just not "fun" or intriguing anymore. Green was a rapist who probably had no "followers"--why bring his killer to accounts? Who benefits REALLY?!?!?!? Tony Gillingham doesn't seem to be shedding tears over his death.
Wow! This review mentioned nothing about the Calzona scene we got nor the great cafeteria scene.
Jaime King is so stunningly beautiful. She stole every scene she was in tonight. The character of Lemon was just so hurt and fragile, and yet incredibly strong at the same time. It was amazing to watch. I love how Lavon was there for her and rather then adding to her worries, he gave her the freedom to be her, it actually brought a tear to my eye. I also still like the comic relief of the banter between Zoe and Lemon, and how Zoe just sort of accepts Lemon's bitchy little quips now with a shoulder shrug. Shelby was at her best tonight and Magnolia was slightly more mature then usual. I would still like to hear the mama's reason for abandoning her daughters... it's pretty hard to imagine why, or how Lemon can forgive her. I found it quite moving to hear Magnolia say, 'Lemon you're the only mother I ever really had.' It does sum up how much the mum left them. I actually thought the Wade storyline was sweet. Goofy but funny. they needed the happy comic relief storyline, Zoe and Wade don't always have to be in full drama mode. I don't really buy AB and George's chemistry to be honest. When I remember the scenes with him and Zoe in season 1... well it just feels a bit forced to me... but it's ok. If it means Lemon and Lavon finally have a turn I'll settle. I do prefer George and Tansey though, even though I think that that is well and truly done to death now. A really nice episode and good review :)
The scene between Donna and Harvey was just beyond cheesy. Here is a man who is good with women and who doesn't just confess his feelings out like that and suddenly he's pouring out his feelings like a little girl and running around trying to be her white knight. Don't get me started on Louis acting like a wuss and almost crying after hugging because he was afraid he would go to jail. The whole episode seemed like a wet dream for whomever wrote the episode. I dislike it when shows start off good but start to spend too much time on "shipping". It makes it too much like a soap opera.
This week was directed by William H. Macy and I think the "corny" storylines were played down a little so that was appreciated, thanks Bill. I still love Mickey and Noel Fisher continues to suck me in. I'm ready to get on board with Gus, but like the writer I need more story to who he is. Steve/Jimmy/Jack went from being her soul mate to being such an arrogant prick, I really hope it is the last time we see him.
