Who said ANYTHING about Grimm being cancelled? From what I hear it is coming back with a bang.. What gives with this one??
Someone failed to do all the fact checking on this. Clay wasn't an original First 9 member. Cameron Hayes kidnapped Abel, not Jimmy O or Weston. And Kozik didn't step on a landmind? He was murdered by Juice.
I totally found Hollywood B O R I N G and the worst of the locales. Hopefully it gets better.
Yeah I'm hearing a lot of people found it kind of boring. It's so hard to compete with Atlanta!
Billie Lyons? They need to get that right. How stupid.
well i dont know about the whole season but last nights episode garnered 6.97 million viewers and that was up almost 6 percent from last week. so hopefully that is enough to renew for another season. i am dying for the finale and i cant wait to see what happens.i am not liking sherry stringfield in this show. i guess i am used to her on e.r and guiding light to see her in this kind of character who paints visions. but besides that i was on the edge of my seat the entire time for last nights epsidoe and that it was really good and would have rated it a little higher that what carissa gave but i guess to each their own.
I am not a big fan of the new chad , he does look like EJ but he sucks. I am also tired of the shanagens with the Bo and hope situation really bring on a new Bo or split them , enough is enough.
It doesn't make any sense! Victoria deserves everything emily has ever done to her and then some. Victoria has no right to seek revenge
I completely agree. Victoria deserves everything she gets. She destroyed Emily's childhood. She'll never get that back. And Victoria only cares about herself, she doesn't care who she has to hurt to get what she wants! But it will be kind of interesting to see the tables turned this season.
Carissa you are one of the best writers here...........I'm glad your writing for several shows.......... In previews(I know you can't discuss those), Pauline is shown so she may not be as bad off as we think........... As for Dwight Yoakum, I'd love some new music from him.................. I agree that if there is going to be another season, they, to some extent, will still have to be under the dome...............Anyone know anything about the ratiings this has been getting? Interesting to see what the reactions will be when they see that Big Jim killed Lyle.........
Just another question for all you guys, following some excellent comments over the last few hours. Do you guys see the great writing and ironic swing that has taken place this season? I am not happy with it, but we started with Neil being a hard working, loving father and husband, but by trying to live up to expectations, lost touch with his wife. Grace turned into a weak, cheating wife. Now today we have Grace, being the one in control. She's the one that can either support their family and husband or decide, to continue on her current role . meanwhile, all Neil can do is sit back and watch. Sure he can try to tell Grace, exactly how he feels, but at this time, I don't think Grace wants to hear it. He's left as a sad ,devastated husband and father, while Grace is now in the power role.
That's because he cares and she is caring about herself.
What would you have had Grace do in the pilot, other than reach out to another man? No one listened to her, especially Neil. Her sister seemed free and having fun all the time. Grace's book club of female friends was boring. Her daughter ran to her sister for advice, not her. None of Grace's dreams had been realized. What would you advise a reasonably intelligent woman to do at that point in her life?My advice would be to find work outside of the home, not first find a lover. But, what do I know.
In the scene after the bar fight, Grace basically told Neil that their marriage was in trouble. She begged him for his attention (for a meal together, for a date). She offered to "fool around". And Neil was unable to see how fragile their marriage was and act to start mending the fence. He was too concerned with his own issues, ie. work. This is not to condone Grace's decision the next day to start an affair. But it's that lack of communication, connection, and intimacy, that drives the majority of people to having an affair. All people need to feel self worth and its especially hard for women because of the expectations that our society places on them to support their families and spouses at the sacrifice of their own dreams. While we claim that we're a modern society, we're not all that different from other cultures throughout the world. I would also say that I sympathize with Neil. As I said before, in our society, many men are indoctrinated from day one that we have a responsibility to work hard for our family. And that's exactly what the majority of my friends, including myself, did and we justified the long hours away from our families by saying that we wanted to give our spouses and children a good life. This show woke me up again and reminded me that I have to work on my relationship every day and that I need to support my wife in her dreams. And like Neil, I haven't always done that.
If we were speaking reality, Grace could have resumed her career aspirations years before. She did not because of her own lack of motivation. Grace, from what we have seen, never really showed any interest in interacting with Neil's work environment. We have 2 people co-existing but not interacting. The lack of physical interaction with her husband was as much Grace's fault, as his. Personal gratification (sexual and emotional) are still as much a part of Grace's psyche, as they were prior to discovery. She will pursue them with whomever becomes the path of least resistance. If Neil wants physical intimacy with Grace, she will accommodate. Refusal would be an outward sign of some culpability. That is not in Grace's character. She was crying because of the embarrassment of discovery, not at the thought of what pain she caused Neil. Sex with Simon is still OK with her psyche, recall the daydream. It is easier to connect with him because she did him no harm. In her mind, she has nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed of in her dealings with Simon. She was up front. She can even forgive his failure to be completely open, since she believes that he did not want to disappoint or hurt her. As I believe, Grace is gone, mentally and soon physically. Simon will pursue, in order for there to be continuity of the storyline. I hope that there is no weird cliffhanger ending to the next episode. This is a good story without the theatrics. The story will continue and we will see what Grace is doing in Europe through either flashbacks, or brief snippets, during Neils' journey through life. I have not worked out how Grace can just abandon Anika at home. I suspect some deal with Stephanie, or some lie about telling her everything is alright, and she will be back in 6 months. Anika can't go with her, because the portion of Grace living in reality, knows her daughter won't forgive betrayal of Neil when they're abroad. Neil has to learn to openly communicate with his wife, once he does, all is well. If she accepts the communication, the relationship heals, if she spurns it, the marriage is over and they move on.This series has generated too many questions for it to end now.
If she continues with Simon, it has to be behind Neil's back, because I do not believe he'll put up with her and Simon together in Milan.
Absolutely not. I may be giving Grace way to much credit, but I don't see her entertaining anything from Simon any longer, if her and Neil agree to try and fix things. Her going to Milan with Neils support, would be a big deal for her, given the trust Neil would place in her, let alone his support of her pursuing her dream. If she were to pull something shady like that, my new name for her, that's not too graphic, would be Lee Ann. Reckless fans will get reference.
Grace should have done what she did when Neil quit his Job. She went down to his office to see what was going on. She was then waiting with his boss at the house when he came home. After the bar fight when she was trying to tell him but looked like she was ranting. When she got up and read Neils note that he was working late, instead of bicycling to Simons she should have went to his office walked in sat down and said. I'm sober now. We have a problem with our marriage. We take each other for granted. We need counceling. I don't know how much more of this I can take, now what do you want to do about it. But she didn't, she cheated premeditated. She talks to Simon about Neil being checked out of the marriage. She talks to Dylan about he turn ons. She talks to Adrana. To everyone but Neil. Heck so far she even has trouble opening up to her sister. That's what she should have done.
Well, let's see. ....not commit adultery. And not for over 6 months. Really convenient to suggest theripst, after you've been caught. As for Neil not knowing that she knows, I believe Neil may have figured it out between the suitcase and her crying, saying she's sorry but she can't. He is wanting her to admit it first, but like you said, she probably won't.
But Neil doesn't know that Grace knows that he knows! Whew. Therefore, Neil thinks he's in control. Neil thinks that all Grace has to do is admit her affair and everything will be better. He feels in control of the potential rebuilding of their marriage. Did you notice how completely pleased he was when Grace suggested a therapist? I agree that Grace just wants to run. She's not going to admit her unfaithful actions directly to Neil since she knows he already knows and she's too emotionally involved with Simon to even fully admit she's done anything she regrets (except getting caught). I'm sure Grace doesn't feel in control of anything, other than that she can just bow out and go to Italy.
Grace has always, from the moment they met, been in control. Whether she chose to exert it is questionable. We only have evidence of one moment where she exercised that influence. That was in the purchase of their home. Neil got his reward "best sex". Grace loves that home, even her daydream with Simon, occurs in that house. The house represents to her what the pool does to Neil.
Well written piece of journalism there! Hit the nail right on the head. Such a great show, glad it's been picked up for a third season.
Thank you for the compliment. Very kind. This season has been so stellar I cannot even imagine what Season 3 might hold. Too bad we have to wait a year!
