Emerald City Season 1 Episode 7 Review: They Came First

at . Comments

Poor Dorothy.

I bet she wishes she could click her heels three times to take back what she said to Lucas on Emerald City Season 1 Episode 7.  Not that it would have mattered, anyway. but Lucas really dug the knife in when he threw her words back at her at Glinda's castle.

Glinda - EC

I'm not a big fan of Dorothy. She's flat, annoying, and an absolute bore. She can't even take care of her dog, but she thinks she can take care of a child?

Dorothy doesn't know what she wants. She claims she's appreciative of Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, yet the only reason she really wants to go home is to find her mother. 

That's the only focus of this woman who can't even crack a smile after she gets laid. Notice how Lucas pointed that out when they were laying in bed together?

Doesn't she make you want to slap her silly? To knock some personality into her boring, glum self? 

But Dorothy is all about Dorothy.

It wasn't until Sylvie shook things up that Dorothy finally started to think of someone other than herself. Why wouldn't she have thought to bring Sylvie and Lucas back to Kansas with her in the first place?

Trio in the North - Emerald City Season 1 Episode 7

If she cared so much about the two of them, why would she leave them behind, especially knowing The Beast Forever was coming to kill everyone in Oz?

For her to tell Lucas that Aunt Em and Uncle Henry "came first" was kind of silly. As I said, she doesn't want to go back to them. She wants to go back for her mother. It's still very selfish on her part.

And it was hurtful for her to say that to Lucas.

But what goes around comes around, because Lucas stuck it to Dorothy after Glinda broke the spell he was under.

And how did Dorothy react to this surprise of surprises? By being her SAME BORING SELF! All that came out of her mouth was a wimpy, little, "Lucas?" That was it. You'd think she might have shown a little bit more spirit when another woman kissed her man.

Sorry, but I don't feel sorry for Dorothy at all.

Did anyone else laugh out loud when Glinda made that snarky remark about naming Sylvie and Lucas? Glinda might have been thankful to Dorothy for bringing her husband and child back to her (I'm only guessing Lucas is her husband), but now that she knows the true reason for Dorothy's visit, it's not going to be pretty.

Who's going to save Dorothy now?

The only thing that might is the uncontrolled magic she possesses. I don't know about anyone else, but the whole scene with the wolves made absolutely no sense. 

Message to the People - Emerald City Season 1 Episode 7

The Wizard has his own problems. The little big man has lost control and is bullying everyone around him. Even West.

If she can use her magic to save her sister witches, why can't she use her magic to kill Frank? I wish she'd get herself out of her opium funk and do something other than continuing to help him out. 

Does she not realize she can kick his ass with one twirl of her hand?

Enough is enough. She really needs to get herself together.

I loved that Tip stuck to West's side, helping her through this crisis she's going through. West really trusts her, and hopefully their relationship blossoms even more.

Maybe it will be Tip that shakes West out of her funk, especially now that it's been revealed that Tip may be Princess Ozma. Though, it could go downhill fast if West shares that information with Frank. The sh*t will hit the fan if that happens, no doubt.

A Journey - Emerald City Season 1 Episode 7

Langwidere is out of her mind. She can't decide if she wants to be a good girl or a bad girl, and she's confusing the heck out of Jack, but at least she's got spunk.

I don't which side of her she was showing in the screaming forest, but there a definite sexual vibe to her rubbing the oil all over Jack the way she did. He certainly found what she was doing pleasurable.

I just wish Jack would have let us see what she really looked like once they were back home. I was looking forward to see what was behind that mask. Maybe next time.

"They Came First" was a rather "meh" hour of Emerald City. There are still many more questions than there are answers,  I'm having a hard time continuing to buy into the Wizard's power, and Dorothy has been nothing but a bore (for how many episodes now?)

There are only three more episodes left of Emerald City, and there's still a lot of story to cover. Will it be able to tidy it all up before the season ends?
