I liked the Joss - Scott scenes actually ... I think there was this question from Joss through the whole season... Did I make the right choice? And this flashback scenes lead her to realise sometimes fate is inevitable and the UNiverse would have course-corrected any choice sh made anyway (borrowing a theory from Lost). I really think they should consider putting April and Daniel back together for good - those two have off the chart chemistry and they connect so well. Her relationship with Blair is so boring, like this "1950's Cliche" of how she thinks a relationship could be. She can't even be honest with him about anything. And Marc is really cute and sweet but I just think he is a bit too young for April. He needs to grow up first. I loved seeing Daniel back again! I find the Karen storyline very funny. I liked her telling off the Priest because I thought she was just going to suck it up and cry a bit more, but then she got all ballsy and super righteous. She is such a neurotic character and I love watching her journey. Joss & Harry are my favorite characters and I want them to just be together. I honestly think they can actually stay togetether without all this makeup break up and still have enough drama just by virtue of their big personalities to still be entertaining - but the writers need to actually GIVE them a chance! I like Aryi's charcter but it would really be refreshing if she actually becomes a strong female friend support in Hary's life and not another brief distracting love interest to momentarily deter him from Joss yet again... Snooze! The main thing I don't like about the Calista trial is I can no longer see how Calista and Joss can actually ever become friends again after all has played out... I think Calista is such an epic character and conjures up that old school rocker style. She needs to stay in the show and I would hate her to have to go because of this. And I'm sort of sad Luca died because it was good to have a character you could just plain dislike without any grey areas... killing him off so quickly I feel like we could have really had another season of hating him before they did that... moving too fast writers! I actually really enjoyed this episode!
I was a pretty huge fan of this show... but I think they should have condensed the last two seasons into one... the story was really over long ago. Once they lost Conrad they just lost anything funny about it. And once they sort of took it out of the Hamptons, they just lost the glamor which made you able to just enjoy the soap and overlook the ridiculousness of some of the plots. Also the whole Margaux and Louise substory was just so unbelievable and unnecessary, as was the Malcolm Black story. The real story had been told. They just didn't need the rest. The initial concept, and the story of her getting Revenge on all these elite society members who had pretty much locked her in a closet as a child was brilliant, which is why I think the overall story was marred by this last season, and it's a shame. Anyway I still do love a lot of the characters, and costumes and scenery so will remember this show for it's initial 2 Seasons with fondness :)
I never thought this three way couple with Karen could be so attractive, but it's fascinating to watch. Karen just continues to surprise episode after episode. I am loving this actress I have to say... I watched her for 7 seasons on Lost play a very conservative and traditional role, and I love this totally different woman who is just exploring herself and her many loves without any real misgivings. I think Harry is gorgeous and I know he is being an arse but I am so totally team Harry/Joss (maybe cos I am aussie). I really wish the writers would at least give them the chance to be happy as a couple for a couple of weeks before just tearing them apart in every single episode. I mean we've watched these two for 3 seasons now and they don't seem to cut either of them a break. Every week you think they will just have one happy in love episode with someone or each other, and they always end up in tears! I love Marc, and I think April is one of the most stunning actresses on TV! I don't think they really work as a couple though - more as a family. I really think she connected best with Daniel. The two had real chemistry. I don't really understand why she's broken up with him. This Blair guy seems like the 'good on paper' she feels she 'should' be with. I didn't really like Savi's character. Nothing on Alyssa Milano, it was just her character really frustrated me. She was super self involved and she really never seemed to care at all how her actions affected others in anyway. I found her extremely selfish. I mean I still think if it was realistic, what Joss and Harry did was unforgivable - because Savi and Harry were together 15 years... thats such a betrayal no matter how you look at it. I feel like the show actually cast the wrong couple to begin with. Even in Season 1, Savi and Harry just didn't have chemistry, Joss and Harry always had it through the ceiling - I think they realised it and trying to repair the damage. Lastly I think the character of Calista is one of the best characters I've seen on TV in so long. She is very rock n roll and super relatable, like a lot of stronger older women I have met in the fashion industry. They have really nailed an awesome character who brings something fresh and powerful to this little group! This show is great escapist watching especially when you're home sick all week with the flu!!! :)
