WONDERLAND was never supposed to be an ongoing series. All its marketing says it Is a "limited-run" series, designed to end after 13 episodes. I think ABC is trying out its version of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, meaning an anthology series with different takes on fantasy stories. Much like AHS does different takes on the horror genre. Time will tell. But, I think WONDERLAND will end this year, and next year we may see OUAT IN NEVERLAND or OUAT IN ATLANTIS.

The voiceover for the March preview said something like, "Look who is coming to Storybrooke." Then, there were scenes of the Doctor in the hospital, and Belle was standing up in a group of Storybrooke-dressed people. So, I agree. It will be back, either in flashback form or plopped in another reality.

White Collar Review: Fresh Air

I'm confused. I thought Elizabeth had her own catering company and was an event planner. When did she start working for a gallery, and become an art expert on par with Neal? That's not consistent with what we've seen in the past. She's never given input on art before that I can recall. Neal's ex, the insurance lady, gave her input on art many times and Elizabeth never chimed in nor was asked her opinion. I did enjoy enjoy the show's take on THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY though. Sometimes it's good to have stand-alone episode, and I enjoyed this one.

Elementary Review: Thinking For Two

Very true, Lucy. In previous iterations of Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft is usually shown as someone with much greater influence politically than his brother; either overtly or covertly. Mycroft knows how to work the system. Regardless of how Sherlock feels about him, Mycroft gives his brother information so he can protect himself. He's never tried to harm him. If you think about it, a successful restauranteur would be a good cover for a British intelligence agent. He could travel the globe under the guise of searching out ingredients & dishes for his business.

The Blacklist Review: A Father Revealed

Red had 3 daughters. He makes personal comments to Liz all the time. You think she would do her research into his family & make a few back so she could gain some control & leverage in this relationship. It's not rocket science. It's self-defense against a known criminal. I'd expect Jane Alexander to do it.

The FBI vets its employees EXTREMELY well. At least, the real FBI does because of the nature of their work. They would have done a DNA profile of Liz in her basic application to the Bureau. Being adopted would have made that issue more important to them since she would be unaware of her "real" origins. That would have flagged a match with her "father's" DNA if he had been in the military, which Red was; especially if he then became a criminal in the Most Wanted database. You're right that Red can make people disappear. But, if he can manipulate a criminal database so easily, why does he need to ask for access to it from the AD? Entertaining show. But, sometimes the easiest pieces don't add up.

Ridiculous comment. It's been violent & disturbing from the premiere episode! That's why it's a hit...because it's similar to the shows found on a cable or pay tv. I get that it isn't people's cup of tea. But, come on...equally disturbing situations are found all the time on LAW & ORDER: SVU, CRIMINAL MINDS, BONES or ELEMENTARY.

I think the purpose of the entire conversation was as Ichabod stated - that we don't know people as well as we think we do. In the writers' zeal to prove their point, plus knock Crane's image of Jefferson off its pedestal, they just threw the information about Sally Hemmings at Crane without any context.

Just FYI to the reviewer, Carissa...Thomas Jefferson did NOT cheat on his wife with Sally Hemmings. Sally Hemmings was born during the marriage of Thomas & Martha Jefferson and would have been 9-11 years old at the time of Martha's death from childbirth complications. According to most accounts, the relationship btw Jefferson & Hemmings began more than 10 years after Martha's death.

I wish (ha!) more people watched this series. It's become a lot stronger over time, and the inside references to OUAT are very clever. This was one of the best episodes yet IMO. Now we know why Jafar is so vicious...it's genetic.
