I think the best additions to the show were easily Bobbi Morse (Mockingbird) and Lance Hunter. Lincoln we barely got to know. I disagree about the strength of the season being frontloaded. I think the last 5 or so episodes of season 2 was the best stretch in the series so far. "the Calvary" episode IMO was the best one (Aside from the mid & season finales), tying the Inhuman and May's backstory together perfectly. While I also agree that "real shield" storyarc wasn't that exciting it was all the Inhuman stuff that made the show IMO. I love where the season ended and what that might mean going forward.
Hey Jared, I agree the last few episodes of the season were excellent. However, overall the first half was much stronger in my opinion including the Midseason Finale. Season 2B had a ton of filler and the pointless "real SHIELD" story arc. The Melinda episode was just okay for me, though the Inhuman tie-in was great. Thanks for your feedback.
Fair enough. I agree Real Shield was the weakpoint in Season 2's storyarc.
The real shield story arc isn't pointless considering if Gonzales didn't have that thing on his ship the inhumans wouldn't of attacked, and Simmons would be on an ockward dinner date with Fitz
We already heard the voicemail when he actually said it during the episode of his death (Ep11x21). Meredith was in the ER while he was trying to call her on the ferry, and we hear her voicemail and him leaving that exact message on it. They replayed a scene from episode 21.
Just a thought concerning Stefan's speech to Caroline in the end: didn't the end of it remind anyone of the speech a certain Original Hybrid gave to Caroline at the end of season 4? Even the kiss on the cheek was the same! I thought that was not very "original" on the writers' part and it kind of made me want to b**f. Plus I don't see any chemistry between Stefan and Caroline, a great friendship, yes, but nothing more. I don't even want to go into the giant plothole that is HUMAN Elena "sleeping" in a coffin until Bonnie snuffs it - not rotting, not needing air, not needing anything... And though Kai's defeat was nicely done it was way too easy. Why did noone ever get the idea to behead him while he was still a "witch"? Come on, vampire reflexes and all...
Going back to when Mary was put with Conde, correct me if I'm wrong but aren't you supposed kiss the frogs (before) you marry the love of your life, she was already married to Francis when they put her with Conde, so I guess what they were saying is that Francis is not the love of her life.
I DO think Francis is the love of her life. Yes, you should kiss the frogs before you marry the prince, but sometimes, well, even fairytale romances have conflict. Conde was an unfortunate mistake, but he helped her in her recovery so he wasn't a mistake if you look at it that way. Also, it's very popular in romance stories to have love triangles and Reign is very much like a young adult historical romance novel come to life, so it's no wonder they employed the love triangle tactic. And I'm sure we'll continue to see that ploy amongst other couples on the show. Thanks for commenting! :)
My feeling is that the only "logical" way to healing is in the arms of your true love.....the Conde thing made absolutely no sense. I think it should have been Kenna instead of Mary. It would have made sense since Kenna is after a King and was lied to and used by Conde's brother. Another approach to avoid tearing Francis and Mary apart, but...no. They insisting on going there for some reason beyond my understanding.
I have read the books and thought they did a fantastic job with this episode. I wasn't sure how they would handle these "sensitive" scenes, and have to give high praise to everyone involved in this show. The acting was some of the best I've seen. The part where Black Jack nailed Jamie's hand to the table with Claire sobbing beside him was incredible. I cried along with her. And even though I read it in the books, seeing it was a whole different level of scary.Can't wait till next week!!
I missed a lot of this season. Thank goodness for on demand. I dig this show. It can get really dark.
I give this season a B. I really liked Kate Callahan and I was so sad to see her leave in the season finale. I thought she was a great fit. I never been a fan of JLH but I think she did very good work on CM. I know a lot of people loved the Mr Scratch episode. I really liked that episode but it did not feel like a CM episode. Should've been on American Horror story. A Thousand Suns was unusul too but it fit in.
Best episode was Lock Down.
Melissa Joan Hart was horrid in this. She is just not a good actress in my opinion.
Too bad both Stalker and The Following have been axed but atleast Stalker being the better show, has the chance of being picked up by a cable network- atleast I hope so anyway. The Following became a mess of a storyline,but it was a mess I enjoyed like any guilty pleasure,which rides on loyalty to a show. The best writing was reserved for Joe and Ryan alone and however gruesome the later killers and killings became, they never struck a chord.I will miss Max, Mike and Gina, they really grew on me. Lastly, its interesting how Fox always gravitates towards the "we" agenda of a Company behind the Company. Eliza and her "Us" and "we" talk, Lisa's dying speech about how "they're" basically invincible, reminded me fondly of a dearly departed Fox show called Prison Break. And if Michael Scofield (miss his eyes *_* never mind he's captain cold now yay!) can upend the Company, Im sure Ryan Hardy can, because for someone who works for "them", Eliza was easily outfoxed by Theo, and for a split second there was genuine fear in her eyes. Wish there was a spin off series to continue this saga, and hopefully we'll see something from Fox on these lines soon.Even though Gwen didn't turn out to be the bad guy(I was so scared for Mike's well being at the hospital) she was a pointless addition to a cast that felt familial, even psycho Lisa fit in and they could never really replace Claire. For serial killers, all the king pins through the series died pretty ironic anti-climactic deaths.... A toast to the writers characters and actors who kept us entertained for the most part through the seasons- and sorry Ryan we are toasting with still water ;) x
I would love a spin-off with Theo, he is awesome!
Love Chad & Abigail together love them as a couple this wk bring down Ben & Clyde.
