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 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.
Note: I was originally going to review Finding Carter,but I just found out that Witches of East End is back.
