I disagree with the reviewer, except for Mercedes as vocal coach feeling forced, and trying to help Marley become a "belter" when she's not got enough vocal power to do that. Those parts felt a bit pushed, but the rest of the episode was a delight. I love Stevie Wonders music, and in fact my family brought home the album Songs in the Key of Life and played it nearly every day for a year (so I got to know a lot of those songs by heart!) Also, we'd listen to some of his other songs on 45 records and dance like crazy around the livingroom on the orange shag carpet. So Glees interpretation of Wonders songs were great, at least to my ears. I also loved that evil witch Cassie was supportive of Rachel and that Rachel gave her the FAME baton! Such a cool gift!
Great ep, and I have to say that Felicity is a STAR! I love her character, and I think Oliver would be better off with her rather than snooty and naive Lauren, who would freak out if she knew he is the vigilante. I loved that Felicity went to Diggle and told him that Ollie needs him, and I am very glad that Ollie and Diggle are on the same page again, because they work so well together (plus, it is oh so HOT to watch them work out without shirts...two ripped hotties, yummy). I am also glad that Walter is back, but I also wonder if he and Moira will stay together once he learns how complicit she is in Merlyns mass murder plot and his kidnapping.KansasGuest, yes, I, too wondered if they were using CGI to make not only Arrow but his mother look younger in the flashbacks. It could also be good lighting, makeup and wigs, of course.
Rayna's sister is also a piece of work...I don't trust her any more than I'd trust Lamar, who should have died of that heart attack. I am glad that Peggy is gone for now, but I imagine she will be back to wreak some revenge on Teddy the turd. I hope that Juliette learned her lesson about trusting men with her money and career. She needs to grow up and get a handle on her life.
OMG, so because Will was always taking girls phone numbers, I assumed he was not gay, and then he totally freaks me out by giving Gunnar a kiss last night! I nearly fell out of my chair and shouted NO at the screen! Yeesh! That was such an awkward (to put it mildly) moment, though I am not a homophobe, I still felt really sorry for Gunnar, because I think he wanted to have a good buddy to go out and sing with and do daring guy stuff like outrunning the train. I am wioth Granny35 on all her comments, yes, it is about time for Deacon and Rayna to get together, and I hope that one of those girls is his daughter. Also yes, I did see that coming with Dante, who seemed like a slimebag right from the get-go. And please, yes, do give Scarlett more of a backbone and make her less wimpy. I hope she doesn't get back with Avery, I still think he's bad news. I still think Lamar is a complete jerk, and I hope that he and Teddy get into it and that one or both of them dies. Rayna's sister is also a piece of work, I wouldn't mind seeing her gone.
Linda, NYC, I agree with you, there are a number of people who could use a few lessons in grammar and spelling, plus punctuation. Unfortunately, they seem to want to remain ignorant and post trollish responses.Meanwhile, I loved this episode of NCIS, and I am thrilled that Ziva finally got Bodner, though I did scream "Shoot him already!" at the screen when Ziva had that gun trained on him. I would imagine she felt that she had to beat him fairly, or not at all, so that is why she didn't take the shot. Still, the last shot of Ziva and Vance was worth all the mess and mayhem. Great acting, really to the whole cast. I was hoping for a little more romance between Ziva and Tony, but I am glad that they weren't hurt too badly in the car crash.
I am with all those who say kill the freak of the week, Pelant, and get it over with! I am also glad that Sweets didn't die, but I am really unhappy about Booth telling Brennan that he doesn't want to get married. She looked so crushed. Loved Hodgins and Angela in this ep. TJ Thyne is one fine actor.
First of all, BEST EPISODE EVER. Second, yes, I cried like a baby, and I figured Gates knew about Castle and Beckett, she seems to be smart enough to have it figured out early on, actually. Yes, I missed Lanie, too. That girl is amazing, and she and Espo belong together. Speaking of Espo, I LOVE THAT MAN! He is so sizzling hot when he is being protective of the people he loves, and I was really disappointed that he didn't get to interrogate the bomber! He would have kicked serious rump! And YES, again, to the return of the Writer's Kevlar vest! LOVED IT! My favorite flashbacks were the kisses, inappropriate comments (and witty quips) and whenever we got to see Beckett all dressed up, and Castle drooling over her. Sigh. Yep, that man truly loves her. Awesome.
I am so glad that Nolan is coming back into power with NolCorp, and I have to say that I loved that much of this episode revolved around him...NOLAN is MY HERO! I love that guy! And I am thrilled that he whupped Falcon's skinny arse! GO NINJA NOLAN! He is by far the best character on Revenge. I was sickened to see Charlotte going back to being an idiotic party girl, and I agree with the reviewer that Declan needs to catch a clue about her, ASAP. Victoria is a sociopathic nightmare of a person, and I think her first child was better off without a mother who would abandon him so easily for art school in France. I hope he realizes how horrid she is when they find him and I hope he wants nothing to do with her. Daniel and Em together disgust me. I much prefer Aidan, but I think his time is limited now that Takeda is hacked off at him
Fascinating ep, though I continue to marvel at how naive Snow is, how naive everyone seems to be about Regina, etc. I was surprised that Hook survived Maleficent, and I have finally realized that I don't really like his character, he's only out for himself. But then, I am also not a fan of Rumple/Gold at all. Regina is a prime example of beauty that is only skin deep, because inside she's a horrid sociopathic witch, about as ugly and dark as it is possible to be. Poor Henry, continually used, always trying to believe the best of people, even Regina. I am not liking Tamara and her boyfriend Greg, even though they are torturing Regina, who deserves it. I still don't like Neal, either, who for a thief seems very naive as well
I just knew that Darby killed her little sister, and I was so creeped out when she was with Lacey! I thought she was going to stab her with a paring knife! Yikes! I also knew that Darby was lying the whole time and that she killed the girl in the shower. I felt bad for Megan that she was so taken in, but at the same time Megan has been so abrasive and rude and never apologizes when she makes a mistake that I am losing empathy for her. I am even hoping that Tommy hooks up the with pretty police officer, because Megan is such a mess emotionally and she treats him like poop. This show is on the verge of cancellation, and last night I saw why, because they've made Megan Hunt so unlikable a protagonist that people are losing interest in an otherwise good show with a great cast.
