Acting was great Selena and Rumple in the hospital was an Emmy worth acting achievment. But storyline fails. There are things that happened in previous episodes with Marian. Se almost died, why would Selena let herself almost die? People Marian knows and Selena cant possibly know, she suddenly knows them when she becomes Marian? Things she said to Robin in the past she remembers but in this episode she cant remember the most important thing she said to Robin in the past? ... and the list goes on and on. Great acting but huge fail. They wrote theirselfs in a mess and found an ever messier way to get out of it. FAIL
Carissa, before I read your whole blog, I have to comment on Debbie, and I've been waiting since Thursday for your post! When the first Joshua was killed, they killed him because he had "touched the natural soil" or the world per se. So he was "unclean". Why then are they still so interested in the second Joshua, and how is it they don't want to kill him. Isn't he soiled as well, having been out and about so long, and he also knows all that seems to be going on. He also didn't seem to care initially about Debbie, so I am confused about that part. I only read your first paragraph so if you already touched on this, then please forgive me. lol
Thank you Carissa. :) On another matter, I could have sworn we did actually see Emma's body in the morgue, but maybe we just saw pictures? I find that hoax a bit far fetched though, even if we didn't actually see the body. I mean, wouldn't somebody have to verify that that person was actually dead? And yes. It is really still debatable with Joshua #2. I can't figure him out as yet. He seemed to me like an evil kid when he sort of threw Debbie under the bus, so to speak, yet he actually follows her and does what she says. Then he goes meekly off with Billingham.
Josh just needed to get to his 13th birthday and have the ceremony before he could touch soil. He blew it by one day. That's why #1 was killed. Joshua #2 made it all the way to his 13th birthday and now is allowed to see the world. Well, he would be if he wasn't kidnapped. Does he care about Debbie now? He's still a weird kid. Debatable. And never ask forgiveness for making comments!! :-)
The BIG question is who attacked Victoria in the garage. While it did appear to be a female it was not Emily/Amanada...based on all the facts from the episode. that was not her "M-O". Could Victoria have hired someone to attack her as part of the setup to frame Emily? Could Louise have hired someone to do it, for some crazy reason?After the attack Victoria acted like she had a concussion...she was not all there. Was that all an act or was it real? Louise also seemed even more crazy even though she was no longer drugged... what was that all about? Random thoughts...Ben struck me as a stalker... he always seemed to show up at unexpected times.Creepy.And I don't want Jack to be Em's true love. No chemistry.Louise's flip flop of alliances seems unbelievable. I hope the writers have a better explanation than Nolan 'lying' to her. I really liked her character until recently.Until they ID the body I won't believe Victoria is dead. If it is true then almost the entire family is now dead... wow.Final hope - this is the last season and the writers treat it properly with closure in the finale.
IM GONNA KEEP SAYING THIS.. LOVE CALLIE AND ARIZONA! I still feel they have it, they care for each other.. and that they will eventually get back together... and come oon!! derek dies?? nobody has a spoiler on thar? next episode is the season finale right?
No, there are several more episodes.
I enjoyed the episode, I agree it went a lot darker than the usual stories we see. It was nice for a change to have a villain just be bad without giving us some sad backstory to feel sorry for them. Some villains just are evil and there's no redeeming them. Cruella was really great in this episode and I'm sad she's dead because I would have liked her to remain in the story, she brought a new side to the villains and I liked her interactions with Rumple especially and the author. Also the Emma against her parents thing is getting old now, though I still get why Emma is upset. Another child had to give up their innocence so she could be a hero. Her parents made decisions for her before she was even born because of their fear, then they manipulated and lied about it. Emma has a big problem with trust due to her past, her parents should have known better. It was weird to me that Hook and Regina were the ones to gang up on Emma about forgiving her parents. Both of them held significant grudges for many years against those who wronged them. So I felt them all of a sudden being role models for forgiveness seemed out of character or at the very least hypocritical. I get that probably they are trying to reach her because they are afraid her anger will lead her to darkness like Rumple wants, but the way they did it was kind of preachy, not surprised Emma didn't respond to it.
I have a horrible feeling that Derek's gonna die.. This whole season is full of MerDer flashbacks, the past couple of episodes Derek keeps going on about how happy he is with his family.Mer saying she can live without him and not loosing any patients while Derek was in DC, the whole wait for me speech, Amelia's random "You have never lost the love of your life" rant to Meredith and Shonda herself is writing the next episode... Maybe Dempsey wants out now that he is divorced and can completely concentrate on racing. I will stop watching Grey's if he dies :(
yeah have that feeling too and also about stop watchin it if he dies... Id rather both of them leaving happily together to do their life somewhere else ... I could keep watching it anyway without both of them... but killing him is like a betrayal ...unnecessary... if one of them is gone both of them should be gone that show can continue anyway...even without mer!
I agree they must go out together.To have this relationship end in death is not fair to all the fans that have followed this show for years. I will not watch if Shondra kills Derick. I want Owen to be in a stable relationship.
The episode title, Sympathy for the De Vil, had nothing to do with the actual storyline. The title made it seem like there would be something in Cruella's background to mitigate against her being a villain, but that never occurred. She was a villain from Day 1. So why the title? What do the writers have against having an actual scene between Belle & Rumpelstiltskin? We're almost at the end of 4B and they still haven't talked. Unless the writers count Rumpel transforming into Hook. As soon as Belle appeared at the wishing well, I thought she was Regina using a glamour spell. Instead, it was Regina controlling her. When will Rumpel actually talk to Belle and have her remember the conversation. Finally, Emma acted to save her child. That's hardly being on the path to darkness. She didn't know Cruella couldn't pull the trigger, so it seems a leap to say she's on a dark path. Also, Cruella never answered Maleficent's question: What did Ursula & Cruella do with Lily? Since Lily was an infant at the time, she can't have all the answers. Is it possible that Cruella is still alive?
I thought she did answer it. Didn't she flippantly inform Maleficent that she & Ursula left the babe in the woods, and took whatever magic the egg had to preserve their appearance?
This was the episode I first really had issues. First, I think it was here in one of Matt's conversations with the priests and even though I know that Marvel and DC have lots of similar characters and even that Marvel itself has issues with basically selling the X-men to Fox but that I was struck by how much this is similar to Arrow. And left me worried about Foggy because he is so much more Tommy than Dingle. Second there was this random focus scenes when Matt was using his powers that was odd. Third, how did Matt escape the blind mob? And also I felt like they should have introduced Matt and Potter closer to the end because I spent most of the 11th episode wondering why we weren't having a check in. Almost it was like the show forgot it was on Netflix at that point and there is no law that you have to follow TV rhythms or end at fifty three minutes. Oh and I know Arrow is basically Christopher Nolan's Batman but those are both DC properties and as it was the first out of the gate Arrow had to draw from a successful movie franchise. I also think that Arrow is moving away from it.

I have a feeling Madame Gao was from K'un Lun, home of the Iron Fists. There was already foreshadowing to it with the dragon symbol Iron Fist wears on the packets of heroin.
Ok, so when Marcus came clean about being a witness to the mayor's wife's murder, how come the cops didn't ask about how the crime scene was spotless. Wouldn't he and the Gladiators get arrested for tampering with evidence or covering up a murder??? That made no sense to me!
