Once Upon a Time Season 4 Episode 20 Review: Lily

What the hell happened to the writers? This is getting more and more ridiculous! Emma's whole 'going dark' story is absurd. Like she said, this is reality, not some fairytale with everything being black and white.
And now they even add a pregnancy? Am I the only one thinking Robin (and Belle) moved on in a VERY convenient amount of time? Both of them have been separated from their so called true loves for two months now. The writers really have to decide, make a 'one true love' special and outstanding OR handle it like every other romance. Way too much soap opera imo, and after all the other complaints I had in the last weeks, it's highly likely I'll be done with the show when this season ends.

When I watched the previous episode where Zelena/Marianne and Hook try to reconnect I KNEW a baby was coming. Now that the writers acted on it makes me believe that OUAT has gone down the crapper too ! Betwwen Belle, this and Captain Swan not getting any development, yeah, things are not going so well in the writing room !

I so do not buy Emma being so irrational and emotional with Lily, when she points the gun to her head...while she knows her parents made a huge mistake...I am not buying this "emma going dark" story, too much pushing and not realistically done! I really like the actress that played young Lily though, she is so much better than the adult version!
I am annoyed by this story line in general , I don't like to think that everything is predestined, and people have not so much choice in life...what about the whole theme of Once Upon a time? redemption, changing for the better...if we assume that everything is done and written, as they want to tell us now, so we need to reconsider the whole show?!! since all characters try to move towards a better version of themselves, as Hook, Regina did or are doing. if we assume that someone is simply "dark" right from the start, then there is no room for any changes...improvements whatsoever...for this reason, I am not enjoying this all "Lily and the savior" arc.

Revenge Season 4 Episode 21 Review: Aftermath

I so hope she's dead...so in this sense, nobody is ending up winning. She may laugh from the grave, but dead she would be still, so I do not see any real victory there.
as for Luise...oh god she irritates me in so many level, her "fake loyalty" to Victoria...the one person really that did nothing for her while Emily and Nolan helped her so much!
And Ben??? seriously??!! He cannot handle Amanda/Emily so this is his way to get back at her?? grr.... this is even worse than a soap opera...

Once Upon a Time Season 4 Episode 20 Review: Lily

Thank you for pointing out the whole Hook and Emma thing. This half the seaosn, they have pushed them away to give us a friendship between Regina and Emma, which is okay to some extent. I would love to see more Captain Swan and for them to have longer screen time together. I'm pretty disappointed in the writers for building up a great storyline for Emma and Hook over season 3, only to ignore important storylines given to them now. I'm still not over Rocky Road when Emma made such a big deal about losing Hook, and when she almost loses him, it's a three second kiss. I'm hoping we get more CS next episode, and before the finale.

I am in total agreement! Couldn't Hook maybe have gone on the car ride too? If you count Emma/Hook time it has been little with Poor Unfotunate Soul being the best scenes. I am hoping for more between them!

I haven't read the article, but my friend did and she said that Madeleine doesn't explicitly state that she is dead... just that she has been showing signs that she was suicidal (i.e. boarding that plane with the bomb a couple of seasons ago).. I hope Miranda is right though. I wanna see Victoria come back in the finale for a final showdown with Emily. Or else it would just seem not right. The story has always revolved around these 2 characters. Also, where the hell is Charlotte? She's always popping up when she's not needed and now, after everything thats been happening with her family she wants to stay MIA?
I know she's supposed to come back and I hope this time she's useful. Turning Louise evil was one of the stupidest moves in this season. Actually, both Margaux and Louise were interesting when they weren't "villains". Now they're just plain boring.

@ KevinG

I think the writers realised people don't like Charlotte, so they're keeping her as far away as possible. She'd probably turn up in the finale for Victoria's "funeral". I can excuse Louise; she was always unstable. Margaux has run out of relevancy but I can tolerate her. It's almost at the end anyway.

Revenge Season 4 Episode 21 Review: Aftermath

You're going to be eating your hat. Madilene Stowe said herself, Victoria is dead. She will only be appearing in flashbacks for the rest of the season. I don't necessarily hope for a happy ending, but Amanda going to jail for Vicky's murder would be an unsatisfying ending. Also, not to mention a waste of the 4 years I've spent watching this show. Is there a way neither of them can win? That would be the best way in my opinion. Also, what about the reappearance of, dear sister Charlotte? Will she be on Amanda's side. I hope so, but I'm not holding my breathe. Lastly, what is up with Louise? I just can't wrap my head around that character. Although, I think Margaux's alligence to Victoria is stupid. I can at least understand it, kind of. Louise just makes no sense to me. She did such an unbelievable flip flop. It's such a joke.

And again with Pretty Little Liars, even Mona was told by producers that her character was killed off. Season five finale she is still alive. Seems like a similar story line... Alison goes to prison for the murder and the liars go to prison as accessories... Only to find she is still alive. Im betting in Queen V still being alive!

@ Laura lou

I don't believe Victoria is dead. Because Madeline Stowe said so, it's so? lol. Do you watch Scandal? Scott Foley said the same thing about his character Jake, even tweeting his thanks to the fans etc. Fool me once...so no, I don't believe for a minute that Victoria is dead. Having said that, I hope I'm right, because I'm a huge Victoria fan. (I don't know if it's the actress herself), but I've come to love Victoria and have never hated her for a minute, not even when she killed Aiden. lol. No. I'm not a sociopath. But Victoria is classy, and I like that about her. No matter what she does, she does it in a class fashion. And once she is dead on the show for real, then to me that's the end of Revenge, because even though this is all about Emily/Amanda, I tuned in more for Victoria. Long live Victoria!

I think it was mostly Dougal's fault that Jamie thought his sister had a child with Randall.

It was. Dougal is really such an ass.

In the final seconds of Season 5, Eli asked Alicia if she would consider running for the office of State's Attorney of Cook County. After waiting all Summer, we finally learn that after Alicia initially declines to run, she is persuaded to do so by the corrupt manner in which Cary is wrongfully prosecuted by the incumbent State's Attorney. Eli even gets the real Valerie Jarrett (in a cameo) to encourage her to run. Alicia runs and wins. In "The Deconstruction" Alicia withdraws in less than 60 seconds and the story about the campaign ends very abruptly! Too abruptly! It makes you wonder if the writers planned this all along which, in my opinion, would constitute a rip-off, or in the alternative, the writers responded to the hostile comments about the campaign that were appearing all over social media, including, but not limited to this website. Either way, the campaign ending was so disappointing and much too sudden! I cannot imagine who will purchase the DVD other than die hard fans knowing what the ultimate ending to the campaign will be. The only bright spot is that we are left with a Jesuit in The Papacy in Rome and a Jesuit in the office of State's Attorney of Cook County!

I thought in interviews I read that Madeline Stowe confirmed that she is dead and won't be returning to Revenge. If the show ends with Victoria as the winner; I'll be pissed! Or maybe they'll have a spin off series with Nolan as the one who seeks revenge for Amanda.

Yes, Victoria is really dead, Madeline confirmed it. I don't know what planet Miranda is on.

@ Kiwirevengefan

No she didnt she just said this is the end of Victoria's storyline.. if you pay attention she is very careful in that interview to say that Victoria is dead.. she even says that it's all part of a performance and that she was very authentic just before that explosion... I cant remember her exact words but she revealed that something was triggered... I'm probably wrong but I actually just realised emily will have to fake her own death as well as these women are gonna physically fight in front of their "fake graves" in the end and thats how it ends.... Wait and see i'm annoyed but excited.

No, I just read an interview on TV Line. She said verbatim "Victoria has died". I don't think you can get anymore clear cut, then that.

But "Victoria has died" can also mean that the identity of Victoria has died, and the character Victoria Grayson is sipping champagne somewhere on a tropical island as miss ernie mcdoodle and is very much alive...

@ Lauralou

Well I believe she has lied.

@ Kiwirevengefan

Miranda and I seem to be on the same planet, because I agree with everything Miranda says about Victoria. Victoria is not want to give up so easily and die and let Emily win. Cause even if she knows Emily will be held liable for her death, where's the joy in that when she can't see it for herself? No way. She would want to be alive to gloat and watch everything in the news. I can see the finale with the screen panning out somewhere to Victoria sitting on a beach drinking mai tais and martinis with Mason Treadwell, and Emily sitting in a prison without beloved Jack, held for Victoria's murder. I'm calling it!

@ Kiki

That would be an amazing spinoff! I now very much want that to happen, more than I want the season to end without Victoria having the last laugh.

@ Kiki

These actors are told to say these things (check Scott Foley in Scandal), and then we see that they "lied". So I don't believe Victoria's dead for one minute. And I hope she isn't. I like her.
