What happen? There is very little quality storytelling. Hell there is little storytelling period. It's becoming a chore to watch. I watch out of an unfortunate obligation to see things through and boredom. Unless cowboy was a sleeper spy in on taking Riley down, he and Selenaâ€™s relationship is plotless filler. I've said all I can say about JLH and the Kyle stuff. It would have been nice if they took longer to redeem his character so it wouldn't have felt so ridiculous when he did an abrupt 180. Riley and the writers have essentially let Evan go. I can't even see him onscreen without cringing over his lackluster strictly sexual relationship with his partner and the fact that he's graduated from the academy and been promoted twice all in 1 month. Plot device is what he's become. A real shame. Riley is just mind numbingly stupid running this business and dealing with this list debacle.It's painful to watch. Was I the only one turned off that she finally wants to sleep with her husband and she does it with a houseful of kids, two concerned friends, and an unlocked bedroom door? Seriously?! I just...ugh. and now a 2hr finale. This is not a show worthy of a 2hr finale.
-752. That episode took me places. It was incredible. From the Huck background, the interaction between him and the other gladiators as they tried to pull him out to the revelations. Someone. Any freaking one. Give Guillermo Diaz an Emmy. All the Emmys.
-Can't even pick one.
-HUCK.Not only is he my favorite but he's the most complex and intriguing. Again I say Guillermo Diaz NEEDS an emmy for this role.
-Edison. He was insufferable. Most of the time be it an antagonist or not their characters are spectacular. Charlie? Billy?Hollis? Jake? Love them. Edison was lackluster.
-Oluck. Olivia and Huck have had me since season one. They're both beautifully broken people. They are kindred spirits. I love their scenes together.
-James and Cyrus. It's mostly James.oy.
-More David. The return of Jake. Cyrus running. Abby and Harrison backstory. More Harrison in general. Info on Olivia and her father. The fallout or Huck and crazy torture loving. Quinn.
If JLH sings ONE more time on this bloody show.... Don't get me wrong, her voice isn't bad. She's a beautiful woman. She's an ok actress. I never had a problem with her. This show right now feels like it's specifically designed to stroke her ego. The storylines and plots are falling by the wayside. Some things aren't even making sense or cohesive. There is a constant need to suspend belief and continuity issues up the wazoo. Kyle is a completely different character. Inexplicably so, and it feels like they're trying too hard to make us like him (maybe because of personal connections with JLH) and not just letting stories flow organically. Evan is just there. I'm over selena and the cowboy because nothing is coming from it. Where is the storytelling?
-the two parted. Zugwag. And Restoration.
-Everything else? It's hard to pick bad episodes because most of the season just seemed mediocre. Like it drifted by. There was one that I fell asleep on because it was so confusing and uninteresting but I've blocked it out so can't remember the name.
-Rossi and Reid. Rossi was very supportive this season and Reid continues to mature.
-Blake. Here's the thing, I never liked Prentiss (or JJ) so it has nothing to do with that. Blake has no presence. At all. She's just ...there. I'd rather she not be. She's a colossal bore. It's not even that I dislike her. I just don't care..
-Strauss' final scene with Hotch. They've always had a tumultuous relationship so it was a beautiful closure.
-I'd like more character centric episodes. I'd love for Reid to actually be happy. The Maeve stuff was a tease and then she tragically got killed. I'd love a return of a past unsub. It'd be nice to see Jordan Todd again or Elle, connected to a case somehow.
I miss Graham. I thought August was a sure thing. Then I figured she had a weird and twisted chemistry with the Mad Hatter. Then there was Hook and Neal returned. I guess given the circumstances with some dead, others children and Sebastian Stan not coming back for the foreseeable future I'll go with Neal.
Trying to balance out their dramas with comedies is bold. Possibly dumb, but definitely bold. I think there is merit in sticking to what you do best. Like procedurals. While I'll definitely watch the entire prime time block on Tuesdays. I liked Person of Interest on Thursdays.
I agree that for this show the torturing was gratuitous, but I watch shows like Criminal Minds and The Following so it wasn't anything I couldn't handle. I also agree that it was torture to leave us that way. Gah!! Deeks is my favorite character. I get the depth and complex nature of his character that some don't take the time to notice,like Tony on NCIS. It always frustrates me when despite everything he's always the butt of everyone's jokes, but Sam was brutal and unnecessarily cruel. I don't understand it. Goofball (though we know that's a faÃ§ade) or not he's always been damn good at his job and never gave anyone reason to question that. I don't doubt he can withstand the torture because he's loyal like that. I'm under the impression Hetty split them up again after she let Deeks know that she was aware of his feelings for Kensi with that note.Loved the kiss. It was rushed and bittersweet but nice. Wonder if Michele will make it? Can't wait for next season.
-I am forever and always an Elijah fangirl. I enjoyed he, Klaus, and Marcel in this episode but Elijah was killing it. That freaking entrance...ripping the heart out and the way he adjusted his suit afterwards. The snarky comment about New Orleans. The pep talks. That air of confidence and nobility. Elijah is soo sexy.
-I feel like a horrible person, but I'm still actively wishing the baby isn't to be. Denial. Because that's what I'm in.
-Who? Oh yeah. You uh, were kinda...r.I.p
-sure. Either way both shows have to work to give her something but...Family is everything in The Originals.
-Marcel hands down. I am beyond intrigued.
-They did. I'm thrilled.
Thrilled for The Originals. Love Morgan and Gillies too much to not have them onscreen. I think pairing them up with TVD for some back to back action will be beneficial to both.
The only thing I absolutely abhorred about this was Hayley. No offense to Phoebe Tonikin but Hayley just isn't an interesting character. Not at all. I felt like they were forcing her to be relevant just because of who played her and now, now I totally did a facepalm. Daniel is amazing. Always. Elijah is easily my favorite character of the show and he could sell me on anything. As much truth and character introspection that came tumbling out of his mouth he could never convince me to be okay with this supernatural pregnancy. He just can't. The Mikaelson quest for love and family has always been what I've adored about them but using that to make us accept this Hayley stuff feels manipulative. I loved everything else though. Joseph Morgan's talent is unparalleled in my eyes. He takes me places and makes me feel things when I watch him. I loved the intro to Marcel. I feel like this can be a darker, deeper, more mature series compared to its origin. That's refreshing. I look forward to more.
