Though I really enjoyed some of the scenes in this finale I was disappointed by the finale. Especially since Jeremy Carver promised something that would change things but instead we got an argument about who's evil, Death dying (I don't believe that for a minute), Rowena getting what she wanted all along and some LOST black smoke monster. The whole thing left me scratching my head. Coodles to Jared and Jensen for some stellar acting (especially Jensen the whole scene with the missing girls father and with Death and Sam was top notch). Season ten has had some really great episodes, the best in a while, too bad it ended a little dumb.

I didn't remember Meisner. Thanks for the remind. So Agent Chavez doesn't know Nick is a Grimm? I wonder if Nick knows she is Wesen.

"So Agent Chavez doesn't know Nick is a Grimm? I wonder if Nick knows she is Wesen." When she showed up early in the season, Nick was un-Grimmed and she ID'ed T as a/the Grimm. Unless T told Nick he would be unaware of Chavez's Wesen nature. He will find out if/when she changes in his presence and she will then get a surprise when she does.

Just sitting here laughing at this review, if you can even call it that. Of course, Felicity knows how to use the suit - her brains, her ideas, her suit. And just because Felicity offered real emotions, don't discredit that as not being "good character development" because she wasn't "uplifting". She's her own character that is happy, sad, funny, angry - just like every other character. This feels like a "review" used to bash Felicity Smoak. Try again.

19 Kids and Counting: Should TLC Cancel the Series?

This happened in the past. He never admitted to rape. How many people out here have played " spin the bottle" or " truth or dare"? In teenage years people are curious. He admitted to touching. We do not know the whole complete story. This happened 12 years ago. It is possible he is a changed man. God forgives and we should forgive. Just remember we all have stuff in our lives that we did!!!

You need to read the police report and stop defending this family. From their actions the parents thought they spoke for God, they thought if they prayed it would stop. This started in 2002 and protective services was called in 2006 so what was Josh doing all those years and how many more of his victims are out there?

LOL, I was not defending them. Quite the opposite.

@ Debbie

I'm, yes he did admit it. Read the report before you start defending him. The media does not have to use the term "alleged" because he did admit to his crimes if forcible molestation and incest. His parents admitted to covering it and lying to officials. It is all there in black and white.

The media uses "alleged" to simply avoid libel and slander law suits so they have to use that term to protect themselves.

Of course teenagers are curious. But there is a big difference between consensual experimentation and indulging in sex acts with someone has not consented or isn't old enough to do so. That is reprehensible- as is the hypocrisy of concealing the behavior while spouting "family values" from a public platform.

I totally agree with you. Do you know that a psychologist will argue this and say its normal & so on. & we all wonder why kids are so messed up & grow up to be but jobs, this is exactly why!!!

@ misty

No, I don't think a licensed therapist will argue this is normal. I think a licensed therapist will argue that the family has serious boundary issues -- which is why I can't stand to watch the show.

It doesn't matter how old he was....he is still a CHILD MOLESTER!!! How the hell would you feel if that had been you and nothing had ever been done about it? Those girls that he molested will never be the same. Until you've been molested or have had a family member molested, maybe you should think twice about what you just said. A CHILD MOLESTER WILL NEVER CHANGE.

I don't agree child to child is the same as adult to child molestation. So many families deal with child to child sexual exploration. How they handle it is another story. It can be handled we have seen it. Its embarrassing but it happens.

No it's worse. Because the girls were molested in their own homes while they were sleeping. And their parents did not keep them safe. Their older brother was allowed to dominate them and forcibly molest them. The girls are living in a family they cannot trust.

We "all have stuff in our lives that we did." We all are not on TV preaching family values and making millions of dollars doing it. Most of us did not play "spin the bottle" with our siblings. For me it's not the act, it was the coverup perpetrated by the parents. I can forgive the child but not the parents who are busy preaching that homosexuals are child molesters all the while harboringg one themselves.

He molested his sisters while they were sleeping and defenseless? This is not "playing doctor" --- he is a slimeball. It happened over a course of several months -- not just a one-time deal.

@ Debbie

The difference between spin the bottle and truth or dare and what happened with JD is that the first two are games that are played willingly while Josh forcibly molested his victims. Read the police report. Consent is important but isn't even the tip of the iceberg of what was wrong in this situation.

Wow, what a season. The way they handle Derek's death by just moving on so quickly was upsetting, but I really thought was brilliant. It challenged the audience so much and made his absence really hit deeper to me. Even after all this time, this show still can blow me away with the innovative spins they take on the hospital drama format. Geena Davis was also amazing this season, the best I've ever seen her. The music continues to be a strong point of the show, not only do they introduce me to a lot of cool songs,but they always seem to find a song that just fits the scene perfectly. Loved being introduced to "Let the Light Come In' by Rose Cousins in this episode (when Meredith talks with Alex in the elevator, asking if he’s talked to Jo about her and the kids moving in.) I really liked how they played some covers of songs we've heard before on the show. Jonny P did a great job with John Legend's "Sun Comes Up" when they're all mingling at the part. I have heard "How To Save A Life" so much over the years, whether its this show or just on the radio that I went from loving it to kind of dreading the song, but I actually really liked the Nilu cover that plays Jo asks Alex to sell the house to Meredith and move into a loft with her.

Tanya, first of all thanks for a very good post. You remembered everything well and very clearly. I liked the points you mentioned. I did not realise Sherlock had walked back to the tunnel. I also did not realise that it was his phone he had stomped on. I thought it was the phone he said he had swiped in the room with the junkies because Oscar had either taken away his phone or made him leave it somewhere. I want to believe that Sherlock just looks disheveled, because he has not shaved and is feeling desolate. I felt that he was tormented by Oscar and now after everything, he just wanted to be by himself. Somehow I don't feel he actually took the drugs. He took the box but he knows that if he took the drugs, not only will his father cut him off, but Gregson might not let him consult with the PD. I think the writers just want us to think he took the drugs but somehow I feel he didn't. That's MHO.

I thought it was a smart choice to have almost no Derek in this first episode after his death, because it made the audience feel his absence as strongly as the characters were. It's like he's just gone and you can feel his missing presence more than if they spent this whole episode analyzing it, and there were some great moments that really, really backed this up. How about that scene when Meredith and the kids return home and then we see her laying in the bed alone? Devastating and they didn't have to do anything like having Meredith go through Derek flashbacks or anything like that. I also loved the cover of Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" by The Wind & The Wave that they used for this scene, it was a crazy contrast in styles between the original and the cover and it worked real well here. Aron Wright (who this show introduced me to and keeps on playing his music) really did a great job on the "In the Sun" cover at the funeral, too - it also totally lived up to the Joseph Arthur original. The funeral was maybe a little short but other than that I do think it was best that they forced us to move on, just like everyone else had to. It's still upsetting but I think if they had to kill him off, they handled it in a really impactful way that really honored his memory and did his legacy justice

And just WHERE was Jake's Girlfriend, Angela in all of this, Love the show, but that is an EPIC FAIL, They might as well say, gee, now it is just a waiting game to see how long we can stretch out Jake and Laura getting back together. I Don't Want Them Back Together, I Really Like Tony. Tony ended up being almost an afterthought in the whole big picture.

I was just talking about Jake's girlfriend and wondering the same thing. It made no sense that they didn't even mention her once. I understand if the actress wasn't available, but at least mention the character and make some type of remark about her dropping by or calling Laura.
I'm still holding out hope for Tony -- he's such a great guy and a perfect choice for Laura.

This show has been surpisingly great - I was worried that the CW was going to pump it up with way too much romantic relationship drama (which do I love but not for this kind of show), but it hasn't been that bad and now that Iris and Eddie have finally broken up, I hope it cuts down even more, because the action parts of this show are a pure treat. I am worried that they might make too much Barry-Iris cheese now (although I loved that in the scene at Jitters when Barry assures her he'll find Eddie they used "Every Age" by Jose Gonzalez, but I digress) but as long as they keep the Iris stuff at the same level or below as they have so far, I'll be a happy camper.
