I guess every television series is entitled to a clunker but this last episode was really bad. Has the writing team been replaced by the Days of Our Lives crew? This episode was one hour of television melodrama in the worse possible sense. I guess every television series is entitled to a clunker but this last episode was really bad. Michelle Fairley is a wonderful actress but even she couldn't have saved this script. With lines like "Fred! You're my brother." followed by a long pause filled with unmeaning "Uhh yeah." Resurrection appears to be headed for the long slow death of a cancer patient with Alzheimer's - it knows it's dying it just doesn't know why.Hopefully the show will return to being the mysteriously creepy show of last season
I completely agree with the reviewer about Hook and Emma on this one. I mean, he knows how she feels about lying. And that she can sense when people are lying. Why not just be honest with her? It's not his fault. He thought he was doing something nice for her. She would have seen that. This is just a way to create drama between them. After taking so long to get together, we don't need all the drama that most tv shows assume we do to keep things interesting. I would much rather just watch them grow closer as a couple. They're one of my favorite couples on tv. We'll see what happens I guess. Anyways, I did like Henry's point about Rumple knowing who the author is since there's no way he would have originally had a happy ending written for him. It gives them a solid lead without creating some kind of huge plot hole. I enjoy watching him rebuild his relationship with Regina, but I still hope we get to see more bonding scenes with him and Emma. Their relationship is another one of my favorites. I'm very curious about this Snow Queen story and how Emma ties in to all of that, so even just the small bits we saw last night were enough to keep me interested. I also think it was pretty silly of Anna not to get more information out of Rumplestiltskin when she had the dagger. She could have had any of her questions answered. And lastly, I loved David's reaction to Emma going on the date and hearing about it afterwards. I do wish for more flashback scenes of everyone else again, not just Anna and Elsa and those involved with them. Hopefully soon!
I love Hook but he got played. He fell deeper in. Rumple played on his fears coz he has changed and there is Rumple taunting him he hasnt and that seed of doubt increased. I really need Emma to find out coz Rumple is being to selfish esp concerning her too - making out she isnt all that... I do love Emma and Hook together and i do love they got a normal date that showed Emma all open and embracing and their intimacy. And really she doesn't care if he has a hook or a hand but trust is what matters
i'm watching for joshua jackson. i fell in love with him on fringe. i couldn't stand noah's recollection of cole being a wife rapist but now we know that is unlikely. i feel like the whole cheating thing has been over done but i'm going to hang in there for peter bishop lol
Am I the only one dying waiting for David and Emily's reunion!?!? I sat through this whole episode looking at the time left and thinking "Oh my god. They really aren't gonna show them coming face to face with each other. You have got to be kidding me. No seriously there are 5 minutes left, we must get to at least see the beginning of it. REALLY?! REALLY! Come on!!!" Yes that was me. Was I the only one? I knew that we weren't going to get instant gratification when it came to David and Emily reuniting but this was the second close call and it doesn't seem like next week will be the week either. I just hope we don't spend half the season waiting for it. I am extremely used to this show being all about twists but I literally cannot see where this David situation is going. He is so unpredictable and I love it and hate it at the same time. I love it because it means that David isn't really that weak character we have seen the past couple episodes just bending to Victoria's will and because it will keep all of us on the edge of our seats. I hate it though because I am starting to get the feeling that David isn't the man that Emily holds in such high regard anymore. I think the whole ordeal changed him so much and I am worried that it will end up Emily vs. David and Emily forced to take him down. There are just so many unanswered questions right now. Why didn't he ever seek out Nolan once he released? Why didn't he keep tabs on Emily once he was released? He obviously found out Fauxmanda died but he never worried about his daughter before that? Who broke him out of prison? How had he managed to stay alive and well for the past 10 years? He must have paid that guard a lot of money to help break out Conrad to kill him, but where did he get the money? How was he keeping so up to date with all the news (Fauxmanda dying, Conrad confessing and being arrested and where he was being held, etc.). I hope at the end of the day we get all the answers and David and Emily can have a happy ending. Can Jack please go away. He doesn't have some special claim over Emily. If his partner wants to ask Ems out he can. Emily can take care of herself and if she wants to say no she can say no but it is her choice!
You're not the only one who wanted them to see face to face. I was dying to see that happen so much. I myself have a theory. That when David saw Emily sleeping he recognized her as Amanda, so now he plans to take out Victoria from the inside like how Emily tried that by using Daniel to get inside Grayson Manor and make Victoria suffer like past seasons.
Thank you Carla & Carissa, this Diggle fan will just sit in a corner and try to remind myself that there are those of us that knew he & Sara weren't close. That Diggle actually has his own family to honor. The entire episode I kept screaming at my screen, "What about Andy's murder, Diggle?" As for Felicity, I'll support anything that limits her time in the lair right about now. She gets to have her life, she gets to be around people that respect her for being a genius level MIT grad. I may not care about Ray, but I care about what his presence offers her, freedom from what that lair dynamic felt like in 3x2.
What do you mean Sara and Digg were never close they were never not close.As for Laurel who gives a sh*t she is the most annoying tv character ever imo played by an awful actress
I was giving this show a chance but last night's episode gave me serious reservations.... No one ever says that 1812 was won by the states... The debate is whether the Brits/Canadians schooled the US or not.
Putting the War of 1812 aside the diplomatic relations portrayed between the US and Canada in this episode sounds of a syllogism created by someone who has no idea of what the true dynamics between our two countries are. Or how they truly operate and couldn't be bothered to do even a little research beyond asking Billy-Jo-Bob Foxworthy what he knows about Canada: "Wull lessee thare its cold, theys likes hockey, and uhhh we conquered them back in 18-whatever then didn't turn it into a state cos it's all frozen wasteland and they's gots their socialized medicine and we can't have commies like that in the Ewe-Knighted-States of Merica. For a show that is supposed to be based on the US State Dept. demonstrating that it has a grasp of even the most basic International relations is important. To resolve a disagreement between the Secretary of State and the Canadian Ambassador to "Well I'll just tell Daddy. Do you really want to wake him up because you're being childish?" is not just an insult to Canada but to the intelligence of thinking people on either side of the border. Speaking of borders how is there an "International Land Bridge" being built in Northern Alberta when the closest US border is nearly 1000 miles away? And BTW Northern Alberta isn't 'sub-arctic' anything it's boreal forest. The summer season maybe one month to six weeks shorter than Montana or Idaho but the climate is the same. Seriously though how can anyone think the either side won the war of 1812 and account for a border that divides North America in half? Worse still how could anyone accept that a "world class diplomat" could hold such a stupid notion and throw it up as some kind of barb? It's not the first time Hollywood falls back on an invalid stereotype only to walk away looking vapid and two dimensional. If, and that's a really big IF, this shows survives it will be because CBS recognizes that their audience is looking for a higher brow drama and that they don't need to lower the bar on everything to meet the expectations of the Billy-Jo-Bob Foxworthy's of this world.
Love seeing Carrie Preston again and sure hope she ok but she is quirky and that's what I love about her...as far as Kalinda she's ok but also untrustworthy seems she justs sleeps with people just to use them...Alicia running is ok but don't like seeing her depending on Peter..don't want her back with him at all!!!
Depending on Peter, she needs him a lot of the time but he doesn't need her. People think he is the slime and her the princess that is a big laugh, since day one and till today he has been there and has not been involved with anyone. On the other side Alicia has confirmed her affair with Will and cried the hurt victim, how has things by the writers turned everything around after there was a vow commitment by Alicia that she stuck Peter right back up his backside in the front seat of Wills car.
For me this single episode changed how I felt towards the show. I thought it was going to be all silly b-movie style giggles and laughs, but now I really think it turned a more serious corner for the better. I know they can't keep killing the main characters, but they can keep up the suspense of not knowing who is going to die and who is not. Best episode yet in my opinion.
I love Rumple and all his darkness but tonight, the cruel and evil way with which he played on Killian's darkest fears - namely that he hasn't truly changed and that he doesn't deserve Emma - made me cringe. I hated Rumple calling Killian a "puppy" when the later has the strength to be better and fight for the woman he loves while the former has done no such thing. There is nothing more manly than fighting with your heart and soul for the one you love, like Killian has.He had the very best reasons and motive for a very unwise decision...The Dark One manipulated him and messed with his mind in the most cruel way. And while I ache for Killian and can't bear to see him in pain, I'm also extremely excited for this storyline because it gives both Colin and Robert the opportunity to shine and demonstrate their considerable acting skills.I didn't think of the possibility of Rumple lying to Killian and the hand being cursed indeed...I wish we would find out, but I don't know if we will to be honest.I hope that Killian will tell Emma the truth yet - just like he did when Pan revealed Neal's existence and whereabouts to him back in Neverland. He didn't tell her when Zelena was blackmailing him but back then he was trying to protect Henry and her family. And back then the Charmings and Emma didn't trust him enough to not turn their back on him (3x19 was extremely painful for all Hooked fans of OUAT), even if it was just momentarily. I thinkå there's a good reason why the writers made a point of Emma telling Killian in 4x03 that "of course" she trusts him.Now Killian has people in his life who trust and care about him, possibly even love him. I'm hoping that Emma will fight for her man, just like he's fought for her. It was wonderful seeing them both so happy during their date. The focus on their hands, intertwining and touching was beautiful and heartbreaking all at once because Killian wanted his hand back just so that he could do those things and be closer to the woman he loves (which made his deal with Rumple so much more loaded with bittersweet emotion). I loved Emma feeling so safe with Killian that she revealed a softer side to him she's never revealed to anyone before. Being loved like she is by Killian lends a certain freedom and softness to her that is extremely beautiful to watch. I'm so grateful to Adam and Eddy for continuously telling their story on this level, showing us a real relationship that's simultaneously one of the most magical I've ever seen on TV - if not THE most magical.That kiss...no words. All the love and tenderness of the world was in it.Part of me wishes that this was not the last time we saw Killian Jones hold Emma Swan with both hands...
