Grimm Round Table: Death Becomes Them

I thought it was great! I can't wait to see the next season! I personally would like to see Adalind be a part, helping Nick and making up for her past. Although she could play a good bitch, she wasn't a very good witch. I was saddened to see Juliette turn so evil, a true witch, that she was unrecoverable. I will miss her, but not the crap she put Nick through with the whole "what about me" attitude when it came to Nick and him being a grimm. I'm also happy to see Trubel's back! I really like her, she plays her part well. I believe team Nick is perfect with each other. A good mix of emotions. I hope to see more bonding, including Renard.

not much to add to the comments below- all correct. Great acting, good story lines, a diverse cast where nothing seems forced, just normal imperfect people muddling with characters we could empathize with. Again how odd that a very poorly written show like CSI Cyber with wooden actors saying lousy lines is getting renewed, and boring Ted Danson gets transferred. Who makes these decisions?

Been awhile since I have commented on one of your reviews. I have been busy reading the GOT books. Now that I have finished I can give the show my full attention :) and now I can be one of those book reader no it alls. Cersei definitely had this one coming but I did find it hard to believe that the Tyrelles would leave their guard down while in Kings Landing. It is a dangerous game that Cersei is playing and it seems she might have just gotten stung. Dany is one of my favorites so whatever we can do to get her more screen time will make me happy. Having her paired with Tyrion will be a god send and something to look forward to every week. Episode 8 is on the way and I believe in previous seasons this has been where some crazy stuff happens. Lets hope that hold true.

Since S10 was promoted as the "Year of the Deanmon" by all rights "Soul Survivor" should have been the finale. The Demon Dean arc would have been a showcase for all the main characters involved and there would have been no need to introduce mediocre characters like Claire and Rowena. Once again SPN shot itself in the foot by making promises it didn't intend to keep and by filling S10 with that stupid angel arc and idiotic filler episodes. The execution of the MarkedDean storyline was inconsistent and downright clumsy. The finale only illustrates the main problem with SPN: the writing. Jensen is a fantastic actor, he can spin gold from the garbage the writers give him, yet I am never convinced when he talks about the evil he's supposedly done because the show never allowed us to see him as truly dark. I don't count bad karaoke, romancing willing human women and killing demons in self-defense as evil. Demon Dean was deliberately watered down so he wouldn't scare the more vocal fangirls who didn't want to see Dean evil in the first place. That would have been way out of their comfort zone, yet I bet these same fangirls had absolutely no problem with Soulless Sam. Soulless hung around for more than 3 episodes. Those fans always complain online, and unfortunately, the show always listens to them. I don't have high hopes for S11. I can see the Darkness possessing humans next, so that story will be just a tired rehash of the Leviathan arc, which wasn't all that great in the first place. SPN has a notoriously cheap special effects budget. I just don't see the Darkness rampaging all over the countryside in that form, like a cheap Godzilla knockoff. And I was hoping Rowena would die. She's a poor man's version of Endora, from Bewitched.

Damn. You sound like an all-time hater; not a concerned fan. I'm assuming you're a jealous Vampire Diaries fan or something like that. I'll say the plot this year wasn't the best, but the visual effects in Supernatural have always been great for it's relatively low budget. While Claire was an annoying character sometimes, Rowena was fun to watch, and I look forward to what's in store for her next season. If you don't like the show, don't watch it, as simple as that.

I think RubyAngel makes a very good point and gets to the heart of what is ailing SPN these days - THE WRITING - ITS THE WRITING that is distressing fans so. Carver should write more, Ross-Leming, Buckner, Charmelo, Snyder, Kline and EP Robert Singer could do the show a favor and move on. With episodes like Taxi Driver and Paint it Black both written by the neptotistic duo Ross-Leming and Buckner that's justification enough for any SPN fan to be livid. Those episodes SUCKED.

Although it is still my favorite show on TV I have to say I really agree that the writing has been very inconsistent since the end of the kripke Era and I have to say I point a lot of the blame on Jeremy carver. He's a fan pleaser, and never takes the stories all the way for example the demon dean thing ends up being dean is kind of a demon and not all that bad if you make art whether as a writer, a musician, a painter, or whatever the one time you need to disregard your fans is when you are making your craft. This entire season was all over the place in terms of a story in the same way that season 8 was (I had no idea what the main point of that season was until after the mid season finale) long gone are the incredibly dark tense suspenseful and emotional episodes of the first 5 seasons. What's sad is that even when they would veer from the main storyline and do monster of the week episodes back then they still had an emotional power to them. Now it's like every side episode has to be funny and when half your season ends up being that you make the show lose its darkness and emotional power. Jeremy carver has got to go.

Thing is the writers/Carver have no say in how the show gets promoted. They've even shown annoyance at promos for spoiling things. The Demon Dean arc shouldn't have been season long, but they should have saved him being cured for the 200th episode.

Great RT and great finale. The finale rounded up the season in an awesome way. What i would have loved to know was what the deal was with Juliette's continued silence and look of remorse/second thoughts. At first when she confronted Nick I thought she was really remorseful thats why she came back, that she might have had a chance to survive the season but then she turned right round and agressively confronted Nick just to kick some butt. I can't say I will miss her. Most of the time i barely tolerated at most and only liked her at some instances her when i thought i had no choice but to accept her as a permanent castmember and love interest for Nick but now that i've seen the route taken with her, i'll say good riddance

lousy CBS they need to keep this show going

I agree. This show got better each time. CBS seems quick to cancel shows that just need some time. So sad.

Battle Creek Series Finale Review: Sympathy for the Devil

I will miss this show. It needed a couple of episodes to establish itself. CBS doomed it to failure with almost no support and a crappy time slot pitted against the last season of Mad Men. Any chance the show will be picked up by another network?
