I agree with Amanda - I hate the baby storyline too. In my opinion it is just too disgusting.As for the name, it's funny that in Slavic languages Zora(h) actually means dawn. Also, in Slavic languages Zelena means green. When I watched the Bear King the first time around, I was totally bored as indeed, I wanted to stay in SB and see what the latest DO (genius twist, nobody has seen it coming even if we had spoiler pics with his name on the sword) and his accomplice Zelena are up to. Later on, when I watched it again without all the negative feelings, I realized the episode was perfectly all right. I enjoyed the witch who also likes to make deals and make clients sign or seal contracts. Only a dearie was missing here and there. She was pretty much entertaining. I basically like Merida so really, the episode was not that bad, even if it is true it has no connection to Birth.
When Dean went to the future in Season 5 Sam went off on his own to be Lucifer's vessel.
Maybe I'm being too hard on him, but I found myself saying out loud Yup! to Cole's statement of what he needs in a dad, and when Luke was whining about it all being his fault, also saying yup. Juliette less-so, but he didn't exactly try to help. Jeff actually did seem legitimately concerned at times and tried to help not once, but a few times. Luke was unaware, but to A) not be there for his kid (fine to get your rocks off but when you're faced with the consequences, own up) not apologize for NOT being there for him in any legitimate way, and then B) to basically make him have to torture Layla and maintain a lie? What a role model! I'm sorry, but he lost ALL respect from me. Sad part, it's probably entirely accurate, too. Which means I'd lose respect in real life as well. I whole-heartedly missed Juliette this week. Does Avery even know she is in rehab yet? Loving the bromances. All of them! Caleb. Yawn.
No Avery doesn't know yet..........I think only Luke and Gabriella know.........
I love this show...deeply disappointed!
I'm not sure anyone actually KNOWS about what Walter did other than Walter and Sly, and hasn't Sly been basically at the hospital?If not, major plot hole. I too was yelling at Gleason for shooting through the door - how stupid! - but hearing him describe it later was awesome. Although, the reveal by whats-her-face had me expecting her to say "And I would've gotten away with it if it weren't for you pesky meddling kids!" - it even had a big SUV to stand in for the van. But I can forgive that for the rest of the fun episode. I think Happy was crushing on Gleason a little... and that everyone else was as well. I thought back too, how interesting their editing was so we didn't see what was going on - cutting to brittyblonde while Walter was muted talking to the rest, so we would be surprised. Everything that I thought was so weird made sense in retrospect. Why was Cabe just standing there? Ah, the video. Even their timing of electrocuting the fence I didn't get - how could they have been off on that? - then OHHHHHHH. Well-played, Scorpion.And MI6. Well-played.
I don't buy for one second that Freda would have lost to Hakeem in a rap battle. He's an entertainer but not a great lyricist. never has been. It's just WAY too contrived that he won in a RAP BATTLE against her. They have made Freda out to be too talented in that arena. This reviewer may not like a hip hop lyricist/rap battler but I do and sorry but no that isn't realistic.
I think that Freda is genuinely more talented than Hakeem and her roughness is what makes her so interesting. Her flow is incredible, it just seems that they need to work her character a bit more, show her background, what got her so angry and how did she grow up . I love Hakeem this season, he is a great rapper but let's be real he is a daddy and mommy's boy, why pretend like he is some kinda of hood rapper a la Jay Z. I loved this episode, probably my fave of this season so far.
I loved this episode as well! And I agree that Freda's background needs to be explored.
I think Freda is extremely talented, I just don't like her character. As soon as the Freda/Hakeem battle was announced, I thought Hakeem didn't stand a chance. But it wasn't really set up to just be about the lyrics. How many rap battles have the rappers names lit up in lights above them? I thought it was more of a show than a battle and I think at this stage of the game, Hakeem is a much better performer. As soon as he got the crowd into it, I knew he was going to win. Just my opinion though :)If these two were on a street somewhere just going back and forth, Freda would probably crush him.
I totally agree Whitney...........
your totally right, shes way more talented than that plus shes from the mean streets .
I'm glad they found a way to make Emma's big story line about Hook instead of her. There's not nearly enough Hook on this show really. They should glamour everyone to look like him so Colin can play everyone's roles. Then OUAT would be perfect.
Ha, right? Why do they hate the character of Emma so much? She should be an amazing character but now she's just a plot device to further Hook.
1 always good to have the girls back on camera.2 no there is no story in letting Hook die after saving Regina3 Obvious name is Olive though I would be cruel and name her Dorothy4 The shows did not play out well back to back and the later episode had a lousy timeline again plus what is with all this realm jumping with no means5 Seriously nothing comes to mind.
Did anyone else have a problem with Gibbs slapping a man in the face not once but twice? Where I come from slapping people in the face for any reason is just not done. I was surprised to see that Jake was a creep. This is supposed to be the man Gibbs thought so highly of that they talked on the phonealmost every night. This was Gibbs whose motto has always been I don't trust you because I don't know you. And yet Jake was great! Each development in the Ellie Bishop story indicates the new characters were not thought out. Ellie goes from brilliant at everything including autopsies to totally naieve and having no special skills to contribute to the team. This is not surprising since the analyst/database skills were already covered by Abby and Tim. Jake goes from supportive spouse (which I actually liked) and friend/colleague of Gibbs to lying cad. You cannot develop characters if you don't have any idea who the characters are. Please bring back Shane Brennan to develop a replacement character for Bishop. And find writers who can plan a storyline that is less simplistic or is Brennan needed for that too? I guessed very early on the ass't DA had planted the DNA.
The slap was a little of our old Gibbs, a slap to the face is humiliating he told Ducky once, the PO lied to him, he despises being lied to, slap deserved, esp when the jerk came to him to clear him. We still don't know who Jake is or what he's up to. He could be a cad, it could be a case of work place harassment, under threat, he could be more than he appears, will we ever find out is the question?
I'd forgotten about Gibbs smacking that guy. He may've just earned himself a guest spot on Blue Bloods.
