Hellcats Review: Setting the Season Finale Stage...

at .

"Don't Make Promises (You Can't Keep)" had the me searching for answers.

The hour didn’t provide great strides in any storylines, instead focusing on subtle steps towards the back half of the season. To wit: it looks as though Charlotte’s baby and Marti’s questions about her father will play a big role later on.

Pregnant Charlotte

Dan is back in his adorable boyfriend/awesome best friend glory. His friendship with Marti is one of the most enjoyable things about this show. It almost seemed like no time passed and the awkward phase between the two never happened. These two really remind me of Lucas and Haley from One Tree Hill, especially in the earlier seasons. Although it may seem that this pair as a couple is the endgame for the series, Dan and Savannah is the right move for the time being.

Meanwhile, it looks like Lancer will be welcoming a new student. Giving Dan an arc outside of Marti and Savannah should make for some interesting character development, simply giving him something else to do.

Savannah handled the fact that her sister had gotten pregnant by her ex rather well, don't you think? There is no chance I could have let it slide like that! The twist with Noah was a little predictable, though.


  • Anyone else interested to see if anything will play out between Lewis and Nasty Cathy? Could this unlikely pairing be the next couple on the show?
  • I take back everything bad I ever said about Alice. This girl is downright hysterical and brings the much-needed humor to various scenes.
  • Both the Hellcats and the Cyclones put on an amazing performance for that grungy band. The stunts were insane and the tumbling was unreal. I can't wait for Nationals.

Overall, not my favorite episode. What did you think, TV Fanatics? Are you glad to see Red and Vanessa get together? Interested to find out more about Marti’s father? You have a lot of time to discuss these and other topics: the next new Hellcats episode airs on April 19.
