Witches of East End: A shipper’s dream come true,even if the ending was bittersweet. We finally got love scenes for Dashing and Frillian,even if Dash screwed up royally and Killian is still under Eva’s spell. I don’t care about Frederic and Wendy’s love lives, but Wendy letting a mortal onto her secret was huge. Frederic being overprotective was awesome,but his comment confused me to no end. If you’re spoiled about the books or read them,you’ll understand why it was out of the blue.
I want Dashing to happen,but Dash really does need to redeem himself. He’s been making excuses left and right and what he’s been doing is fucked up. Even if Tarkoff is an asshole,I love James Marsters and his interaction with Joanna. I feel sorry Frederic’s girlfriend,though. She shouldn’t wind up being the king’s new host. I think Frederic dies or it wouldn’t be as emotional,nor would the betrayal string so badly.
Boardwalk Empire: It was confusing. All the flashbacks were unclear and contained unnecessary information. We didn’t even see Eli, we saw Nucky’s sister who obviously died before the show started. I don’t care that he was poor,a bastard or anything else. The current situation is important and I hope he doesn’t get nostalgic anymore. I need to know what happened with Harrow’s death, Narcisse and more about Chalky than we got.
I’ve been waiting for an episode like this. Dash and Ingrid are really hot and a much better couple than Freya and Killian. I hate that he killed Kyle’s father,though. It’s going to bite him in the ass,she won’t be understanding and he could lose her. I hate how angsty Freya and Killian are. I knew Eva was up to something,but she’s actually an old woman? That’s disgusting and I’m glad Killian was able to warn himself before he was back under her spell. She’s scary as hell and attacking him with the glass was nuts. I wonder what she’s using him for-It can’t just be sex. James Marsters is in everything these days. I had no idea that Frederic was hosting the king because it made no sense. He’s an interesting character,but we need a backstory on the king’s condition before I stop being skeptical.
This episode was interesting. They’re finally showing the real Ali, Emily turned on Ali and Mona is back to being A. Hannah and Caleb were great and so were the Ella and Aria scenes. Ezra is an asshole,though. He knows that there are trust issues between him and Aria, yet he did exactly what she asked him not to. God, those poor homeless kids. Ali must have beaten them up pretty good.
I’m wondering who’s going to die next week. I doubt it’s Melissa and it’s probably Noel, but they said a liar will die.
Switched at Birth: Hoo,boy…this one was huge. Daphne’s behavior finally stopped and it’s obvious that next week,she’s going to screw up her future. I like the prom portion and how Bay stood up for Natalie and Hilary. She found a healthy connection to her father and didn’t mess up her future. In all fairness, Regina’s behavior has been pretty shitty. She’s not just with Chip Koto,she’s going to finally kiss Wes. Why? Angelo hasn’t been dead long, he has his suspicions and he’s an asshole.
The Fosters: This episode was fantastic. I always thought Mariana had self-loathing issues,but she doesn’t. It’s all due to Ana,but I’m wondering how she and Lexie bonded. Wouldn’t she have gotten exposure to her culture through Lexie’s parents? What do Steph and Lena have to do with it? If anything,Lena is supportive and encouraging. Her love interest is boring and so is Brandon’s. Go away, Lou-You’re ugly as hell, he can’t trust you and you gave him pot. Halley isn’t boring, but she’s a crazy bitch,which is worse. She’s manipulating Jesus, he’s afraid of making her upset and getting a tattoo to win her back is just bullshit. Only Callie has a decent love interest and I hope she forgives Wyatt. He and Brandon were just trying to have her back and caring too much is a lot worse than not caring at all.
Under the Dome: What the hell? This episode blew my mind. The abyss leads to Zenith? Why? What’s the Obelisk for? I don’t care about Barbie’s backstory,I care about the red door and that painted door on the grass. I’m also wondering why Lyle of all people went crazy. Is he finally guilty about what he did. If Pauline trusted Sam,why did she make sure that only Lyle knew? How is she taking Melanie being back from the dead?
Big Jim has seriously hit a new low. His idea of “comforting” his son was despicable and using Barbie’s death is just low. I feel bad for Julia,but she’s the monarch. She has a job to do and protecting the kids trumps staying ahead of Big Jim.
This episode was really shipper-heavy,but I liked it. Dash/Ingrid is awesome and I can’t get enough of them. Seeing the triangle with Freya in the 70’s was fun and so was Joanna with a female lover. Getting answers about the Mandragora was great and explains the sex portion. I love that Dash was there for Ingrid and hope that he winds up okay. I was worried that Frederic was the Mandragora at first,but his seizure and the symbol mean something else. Ava is really,really boring. If she’s a witch,they need to do more with her. She doesn’t even feel like much of a threat,considering that she’s barely around.
Switched at Birth: Daphne’s behavior is bullshit. She’s acting like a ho,she’s drinking now and Bay is right. I get why she’s angry with Regina,but doing drugs, fooling around with a boy she barely knew and drinking is the wrong way to go about it. I mean,no one likes Chip Koto and she’s had tension with Wes,but she’s on probation. If she gets arrested for good, she only has herself to blame. Regina and Katherine’s scenes cracked me up. It was the perfect balance to the angst with the girls.
The Fosters: Oh, boy…relationship drama. So,so fucking boring. Brandon’s forced relationship with blowfish,Mariana and a guy who pulls her pigtails and Halley manipulating Jesus-Who cares? I only care that he snapped at poor Stef when she didn’t deserve it. I liked the storyline with the girls-Poor Kol. She’s not a freak and she’ll be happy in an LGBT home.
Under The Dome: Wow. This episode was crazy and so much happened.
I agree with what Norrie said and Melanie needs to stop flirting with everyone. Her purpose wound up being so important and she doesn’t need love interests. I wish she had said goodbye to Sam,but his character didn’t deserve happiness. He killed Angie,he sounds crazy and Pauline didn’t trust him because she knew he’d kill her son. I’m glad Joe and Norrie are back together-They’re too cute for words. If Rebecca is remorseful,then she can be an extremely useful ally to everyone.
I’d hate for Barbie to die,but it would keep things going. Plus,if he’s connected to Zenith,someone has to find out about it.
Ugh…I can barely watch episode 2. I had to watch it out of order since Mtv wouldn’t load the second episode,but even if I like the cast,I want to kick Carter’s ass. The bitch has a problem and even if Elizabeth can be a pain in the ass, it was cruel to make her think that she was losing her kid. She can be as mean as she wants to everyone else,but in the end,her feelings and her mom are all that matter.
The 3rd episode was better, mainly because I like Max/Taylor. She deserves better than stupid Gabe and he’s an asshole. He’s not attractive enough for either of them and Max seems to like her. Overall, the show is too much like Skins and Carter is Effy.
