Spectacular episode. Definitely a favorite. I loved seeing the Reverse Flash but I honestly didn't think we would get that much of him but we actually got a pretty good amount which was awesome. Ok so I don't read comics and know anything about the DC universe especially The Flash. I literally know nothing about him except for the obvious stuff like his name and what his powers can do. That's about it and that's all stuff I heard about or had learned from on a cartoon. Even though I don't know anything about the universe I still have theories that I've come up with from watching the show and don't care if I'm totally wrong because this is just the vibe I'm getting from the show. Ok first obviously called this since day 1 is that Dr. Wells can't be trusted. I can't decide who he is yet and can't make a guess but I consider that he could be the Reverse Flash but I also can't see it. The only thing I feel really sure about is that he's from the future. He seems to want to protect the Flash because he's worried about him going missing so I don't know if he's a bad guy bad guy or what. Someone else I'm considering as the Reverse Flash is Eddy. Not because of anything about him. I don't see him as bad I see him as the good guy but I can't help but feel that he could be the Reverse Flash. One of the things I though of before I saw this episode and after the last episode was how the Flash disappeared. I remembering watching a movie where the Flash went back in time to save his mom but in doing so it messed everything up to where he didn't become to Flash. Could that be a theory for how the Flash is missing? I don't even know how true that is but there's also the problem with my theory that if he did go back and it caused him to never become to Flash then he never would have been the Flash which means the Flash wouldn't exist which means no one would no about him so no one would know he is missing. That's the only problem with my theory and it's a pretty big one. But that or something similar seems more possible after this episode because as Cisco brought up the night Berry's mom was murdered he saw yellow and red lightning which most likely means that the Reverse Flash killed his mom but Berry was also there. Maybe trying to stop it? Maybe something happened and he got lost in time or something? There's just so many possibilities it's hard to come up with a good working theory. I'm glad that Berry finally told Iris how he felt. I mean everyone knew Joe, his dad, Cisco, Caitlin, Dr. Wells, Felicity, even Eddy felt like Berry had a thing for her but the only one who couldn't see it was Iris herself. It bothered me that she never said anything to Berry and not that she continued to be with Eddy but that she was sitting on his lap at the house in front of Berry and didn't even try to talk to him about what he said to her. How does she feel? Does she even know how she feels? I liked seeing Ronnie again. Seriously I've been waiting since I heard Robbie Amell was cast as him and he was playing Firestorm. I kept thinking about ways the others would find out about him but this way never crossed my mind and it was a cool way. I can't wait to see where Ronnie goes from here and how they get him to join them and how he and Caitlin interact from now on because we'll obviously see him again some time soon. I can't wait till the show returns in January it's getting so good and so much has happened and we're only in season 1.

Why Tripp? I would have rather of had Mack dead. I liked him sure but I liked Tripp more an knew him better. Why? I knew he was going to die when he went back down. I just knew he was going to be the one that died. We saw Mack drop down the hole which would have killed any normal person but he was possessed or something and we never saw his body and in TV if there's no body then they aren't dead and even when you have a body they aren't always dead. Ok so first I know nothing about the comics or anything Marvel really except for what I learn in the movies or in this show. So I don't know what a lot of things are that are happening or who people might be. But since everyone was talking about theories of the Kree, Inhumans, and Skye being Daisy who's Quake made me do a bit of research so I know a few things but still absolutely nothing. Which I am ok with because it just makes the little surprises that much more surprising. I know we found out Skye's name but I'm still calling her Skye because it's what I'm use to and I just like it better than Daisy. Skye's reunion with her father went a lot better than I expected it would go which was nice and I liked that she actually listened to him and got the truth about what happened to her mother. I also liked that Skye didn't kill him which means we'll definitely see him again and it showed that she doesn't want to kill her own father. Speaking of killing I know he's not dead but I was actually a little surprised that Skye shot Ward. I hope that doesn't make him turn on her and he still tries to help her and stuff because even though he's a bit crazy it shows that he cares. I was trying to get through this episode fast because it was late when I watched it so I had to watch it again especially the ending because I needed to make sure what happened happened and make sure I didn't miss anything. So Skye has transformed and now has some sort of powers I assume and so does Reyna. So what are their powers? I'm excited to find out when the show returns. I'm also excited to see how Coulson and the rest of the team react to Skye's new abilities because her father said they wouldn't accept her so even though I don't believe that I'm excited to see how they react to them and to her. I definitely think that seeing Tripp literally crumble to dust right before her eyes will affect her going forward. I'm so glad Whitehall is dead. I've been waiting for it but I didn't think it would happen this fast. Which leaves the question. Who is the new big bad? March? Really? It returns in March? Everything else seems to be returning in January so a month that due able but March. That's 3 months away. Why so long? Why? They're doing this to us on purpose. They know we hate having to wait so they torture us by making us have to wait even longer than other shows.

Arrow Season 3 Episode 9 Review: The Climb

What an amazing episode. This has got to be the best episode of the season so far or at least I think it is. Ray opening up to Felicity and showing her the suit and telling her his plans was great. He really is just a good guy and he just came right out and was completely honest with Felicity which was amazing. Laurel is not good at keep her sisters death a secret. It seems that the only one that doesn't know now is Lance. She just told Thea she didn't even try to hide it and then she told her mom because her mom could tell something was wrong and she actually guessed it Laurel didn't have to say it. When Oliver was saying goodbye to everyone it really felt like this was the end. Like he wasn't coming back. I kept telling myself that it's not the end because Oliver can't die. His goodbye to Thea was great. I was really expecting him to tell her that he was the arrow. My favorite goodbye though was between Oliver and Felicity. He told her he knew 2 things. 1 being that he would do whatever it takes to protect his sister and 2 that he loves her. It was so great hearing him say it but also so sad because then it really really felt like this was the end of Oliver Queen. I know my biggest question from this episode is whether Oliver is alive or dead but it's not. It's actually, How old is Ra's Al Ghul? He said he hadn't been challenged in 67 years. He also said that the first time he killed someone was when he was 11. So he's got to be at least 78, right? He doesn't look that old. How is that? How old is he?
Oliver isn't dead he can't be. My reasoning for that besides that I just don't want him to be is that there can't be Arrow without the Green Arrow. There can't be the Green Arrow without Oliver Queen. And there can't be Oliver Queen without Stephen Amell. I think that pretty solid evidence as to why he can't be dead. I'm also in total denial and will never accept it until there is actual proof. We saw him get cut and stabbed twice and pushed off a mountain but this is TV and if I've learned anything in my years of watching many shows is that no one is ever dead unless you see a body and even then they still aren't always dead you need a body and then actual proof actual solid proof the person is dead. So if we don't get any of that which we haven't yet then he is not dead. God I really hate Merlin. Just needed to say it. I can't wait till the show returns in January.

Stalker Season 1 Episode 11 Review: Tell All

Really good episode. Absolutely loved Janice in this episode. At first she just seemed like she was there but now she's becoming more of a character and is my second favorite. My first being Beth of course. The case of the week wasn't that exciting but I found the victim Stella a total bitch. I just didn't like her. It wasn't anything she said or did but she just came off as a total bitch to me. I was actually hoping that she was crazy, or behind the stalking, or both, or something. You know so that there would be a good logical reason as to why I just hated her but there was nothing. When Janice confronted Perry in the parking garage I instantly knew what she was trying to do and I knew what was about to happen and I couldn't stop smiling and then when she finally got him and he attacked her and the cops came and arrested him was just the best. It was the big fallout I was hoping for with him and Beth facing off and lives lost and everything but this was satisfying. For now at least. Because I'm positive this isn't the last we've seen of him. With Perry I was never worried about Beth because I never thought her life was really endanger but I was worried about her friend and this episode got me worried about Janice. And I'm still worried about Janice because I could see Perry getting out of jail and then coming after her and Beth and the rest of the team but actually hurting her. I can't wait till the show returns.

I've just had so many feelings this week with all the mid season finale's especially since I watched Arrow right before this. This wasn't even a mid season finale and there was just so many emotions but it gave me a happy feeling unlike most of the shows this week. I loved this episode it may be my favorite of the season so far of course.
Basically the whole season I've been waiting for Lincoln and Octavia to be back together and for him to not be a reaper anymore and we finally got that in this episode. They were so amazing in this episode. You could really see Octavia's love for Lincoln from her knocking him over the head to her crying over him when she thought he was dead. I loved when he woke up she said his name and then he said her name. It was just perfect. Oh something huge for me in this episode was that the major soldier lady whose name I don't remember made me hate her a lot less. Before I was seriously hoping she'd be killed and it wasn't even worth remembering her name to me because I hated her so much but now after she took orders from Abby instead of Jaha it made me hate her a lot less and I might actually after remember her name now. I can't wait till next weeks mid season finale. It looks amazing. This show seriously just gets better with each episode. I'm really not liking Finn this season and totally understand why Lexa and the Grounders want him dead and I can't blame them but I still hope that when Finn gives himself up because we all know he will that they'll show him mercy or something and he'll live and the Arkers and Grounders will keep their peace because we can't have gone through all of this only to have the peace end after one episode for only one character. I've been waiting since season 1 for this peace and team up thing to happen.

Reign Season 2 Episode 9 Review: Acts of War

I really liked this episodes. I think it's one of the best episodes of the show. It has to be one of my favorites because it was so good. It was so emotional and the acting was amazing. Seriously Adelaide Kane was amazing and Megan Follows was very good to. I know with this episodes either people hated it or really liked it there's not really an in between at least I haven't seen anyone that was in between it's either or. I'm one of the people that really liked it. Mary's idea about Conde marrying Claude was great but it's pretty obvious that Conde has feelings for Mary. It was especially obvious when he and Mary were talking and he said that he would be living there and their children would grow up together and they'd be family. He was basically telling her that they wouldn't be allowed to be together and it seemed she knew what he was saying because she told him that he's been great as a friend and the way she said it seemed like she was saying it to be polite and to let him down easy with out actually saying that she didn't feel the same way. I really like Conde and I don't know what's going to happen with him but I'm very interested to see where his story goes. I just hope he doesn't turn out to be a bad guy because I really like him and he's so nice and such a good friend. I loved Francis and Bash's storyline this episode. Francis pretending to go crazy to scare Narcisse was great and he was very convincing. I loved that Bash said that even he didn't want him and king anymore. Narcisse doesn't have anything over Francis anymore he can finally tell Mary the truth about everything which he definitely should do and have been hoping he would do I just don't think now would be the best time maybe he should wait considering everything that just happened. I read this review before I watched the episode so I knew the rape happened before I saw the episode and still leading up to it and right before it when you could tell it was about to happen I was still expecting someone to come in and save her. We're just so use to it. I mean in the very first episode of the show there's the attempted rape on her but she wakes up and the guards come and then in the episode where the one guys invade the castle all the guys are about to rape the girls but Catherine poisons all the men and then Mary stabs the one guy then Francis comes in and cuts off the guys hand. We're so use to her being saved at the last minute that it was surprising that it actually happened. I don't think they went to far with the scene I actually think they went just far enough I mean most shows just gloss over it so you don't see anything you just see the aftermath of it but here they didn't show anything except before it happened where Mary was crawling and clawing at the ground trying to get away and then you saw her face and only her expressions so you didn't see anything but you knew when it had happened and it was still so hard to watch. Rape is a terrible thing and it does happen. It happens to anyone. Not talking about it doesn't make it go away. They handled it really well. This show probably handled it the best I've ever seen. The best part of the episode was afterwards when Mary escaped and found Catherine and they talked. Catherine was perfect and knew exactly what to say and do because she had been there before. Mary couldn't say the words so Catherine asked her directly and Mary's reaction told her the truth. Mary broke down and Catherine knew she didn't want to be touched so didn't touch her and kept a small distance between them and she lowered herself down on to the floor to be next to her and at eye level. Which was just perfect. In any other show when you see someone try and be there for someone in this situation they hug them or something. But the writers didn't have Catherine do that which was amazing. I love Catherine and Mary's relationship. In season 1 Catherine kept trying to have Mary killed and in the first episode she even tried to have her raped but now she's helping her through this. They've come so far. I really love that and I can't wait to see them work through this together and just see more of their relationship and see it progress. This episode was so real because of what happened and that's why I liked it so much because it was real. Rape happens now and it will happen in the future and it happened especially back then. Way more than it does now. It was apart of war and a horrible disgusting thing. It still is of course. They didn't glamorize it like a lot of things do which was what made it real. Mary got cleaned up and walked out into the throne room and told her people that nothing happened and they didn't get to her. She didn't let her attackers win. She put her country before herself. And it's not like she's keeping it secret and pretending like it didn't happen. She told people. She told Catherine and then she just came out and told Francis. She didn't tell her country because they didn't need to know and it was none of their business and if she had it would have been chaos. Going out to the throne room and talking to them, telling Catherine and Francis all made her strong not weak. I really loved how the writers handled the whole thing and I can't wait to see how they handle it in the rest of the episodes because I know they'll handle it well and I know we'll see the aftermath of what happened for multiple episodes not just one. We will probably even see it through out the rest of the show even if they don't directly address it because this is the kind of thing that changes a character and we'll see the change in her character through out the rest of the show. I'm sure of it. The next episode looks really good. I had really high expectations after seeing this episode and even higher expectations after seeing the preview and even higher expectations knowing that it will be the winter finale. So my expectations for the next episode are insanely high and I don't think I'll be disappointed. I think it will meet my expectations or even exceed them. This year when I set expectations I was either slightly disappointed because they were to high or they were exceeded because even when my expectations were high they still were exceeded and I have faith that the next episode and maybe even the rest of the season will exceed my expectations. I can't believe we're only on season 2. So much has happened to these characters and they've all grown so much that it feel so much longer than 2 season. Anyone else feel that way?

This show just get's better with each episode. I really loved that the stalker was a woman in this episode and that she wasn't actually the bad guy but a victim and she was just getting revenge on the man that raped he and her best friend and the 2 people that stood by and help and just watched it happen. I can't blame her for what she did. She wasn't the bad guy. I was getting angry that his wife and friend were getting off and then he was going to get off to but then at the end they came in with another victim and got him. I loved that and loved that Corey got her justice. I loved the fight between Corey and Beth. I've been waiting all season for Beth to go all Nikita on someone and we finally got it and it was amazing. I'm so glad that Tracy finally found out that Brody was really Perry and who he really was and what he was doing. I just love her and Beth's friendship. Which is why I'm so afraid for Tracy. I really don't want her to die but I keep having this feeling that she's going to end up getting killed. I really really hope that doesn't happen. Beth has already lost her entire family she doesn't need to go through losing her best friend.
I really hate Perry. When he confronted Beth I just wanted her to punch him. I'm just waiting for the episode where they finally get him and he goes to jail or he dies. I really don't care which it is even though death would be better. I just want to see him get his ass kicked. He makes me so mad and him laughing and smiling at Beth and the end just made me hate him more. I'm so glad that at then Beth went to Janice and finally told her everything. Her whole team was worried about her and asking if something was wrong and both Jack and Janice told her that if she ever needed to they would both be there to talk. I'm glad that the one she talked to was Janice though. When she came back to the office and was crying I was half expecting her and Janice to hug but I guess that would be weird and makes sense that they didn't because Janice said that they didn't really have a personal relationship. I can't wait till the next episode. I'm so excited to see what happens. I want the rest of the team to be in on what's going on and I want them to work together and finally take down Perry.

The 100 Season 2 Episode 6 Review: Fog of War

This show just gets better and better with each episode. So much happened in this episode. In the preview for It when Abby said they were missing 2 I knew that the 2 would be Bellamy and Octavia. I'm glad that Abby finally is starting to listen to her daughter and went out with her and the gang. So acid fog isn't some weird thing the earth created after all the radiation it was created by the Mountain Men and they use to attack the Grounders and the Ark people now. Interesting I really wasn't expecting it but knowing the Mountain Men know and everything they have and what they do is really not that surprising that they created it actually. I'm not surprised that Clarke and Finn ended up in the bunker. Finn was one of my characters in season 1 but I really haven't liked him this season with everything he was doing even though I understood why he was doing it I just didn't like it since he was such the good guy before and didn't want a war and made friends with Lincoln who stabbed him and he nearly died and who tried to negotiate peace with the Grounders. What really made me not like him was the massacre he did of the Grounders because they weren't armed they were just scared and there was children with them. I said before that I knew what state of mind he was in but for someone like Finn who really is a good guy and doesn't want death and violence that when he is back with Clarke that his actions will take their toll on him. I'm expecting him to break and to really lose it because now he'll have time to really think about what he did and he'll see how wrong it was and it's going to affect him. That's my prediction and what I see happening. We saw It a little in this episode because when they were about to leave Clarke said she didn't know who he was anymore and he agreed with her and started to cry. He is slowly starting to break. Him breaking is what will redeem him in my eyes.
So my hope that Lincoln wasn't really a Reaper and he was just pretending to get out of Mount Weather was destroyed in this episode. I wasn't really thinking that was the case I knew it probably wasn't but a tiny part of me hoped it because I love Lincoln and I just hate what they did to him. Bellamy and Octavia are taking him back and I really hope they find a way to get him back because I need Lincoln back I can't stand seeing him like this it hurts to much. I'm so glad that Monty and Jasper know the truth now and some of the others to and they're working on a way to survive and get out and I'm glad Maya is helping them. I didn't like her at first because I didn't trust her or any of the Mountain Men but she really showed that she cared about them and showed them the truth which proves that she's not fully with her people. I'm so glad that they can spy on Mountain Weather now it's so nice for them to have the upper hand for a change. When the Grounder told Jaha and Kane they would have to choose who lives I knew one of them would pick up the knife and try to kill themselves but the other would stop them. What I wasn't expecting and was actually shocked about was that the girl in their with them was actually the commander. I just figured she'd help them get out or speak up for them to her people I wasn't expecting for her to be the one in charge. I liked it though it was brilliant and she saw first hand that they really don't want war but want peace. They're going to need to work together to defeat the Mountain Men and the Reapers. Both Ark people and Grounders will have to fight side by side if they want to survive. The Mountain Men are hurting all of them and have both their people in there.
I really hate the presidents son and that doctor lady. Last episode I thought the son was more scary but after this episode I'm not so sure because the president basically told his son that if he went behind his back that he would kill him. That's scary. His son is still scary though and I definitely don't trust him or the doctor especially together. I'm really hoping that his son becomes one of his own experiments and gets turned into a Reaper or something. I would love to see that. Is that wrong? I just really hate the guy. My favorite part though was when Maya was showing them the Grounders and she told them that without the treatment they would die and asked what they were supposed to do and Monty just said die. I just agreed with him and laughed it was just such a good part. Mount Weather see the 48 as people but they see the Grounders as animals because they keep them locked up in cages but the president said that he wouldn't lock the 48 up in cages like animals. I really hated that part because he doesn't even see the Grounders as people. The Mountain Men, The Grounders, The Ark People, they are all people and they're all just trying to survive heck even the Reapers are people that are just trying to survive but the way they survive isn't their fault because it's what the Mountain Men did to them. So the Mountain Men turn Grounders into Reapers and Octavia recognized Lincoln right away. Wouldn't the other Grounders recognize that the Reapers were other Grounders? Or do they know that but just don't think they can be saved? I can't wait till the next episode. I can't wait to see what happens with Lincoln, with Jasper and Monty at Mount Weather, with Kane and the Grounder commander, with the Raven, Abby, and the team being able to listen to Mount Weather, and with Jaha back at camp Jaha. They might have to change the camp name now. I just can't wait for everything. I can't believe that this was only the 6th episode. So much has happened and it doesn't feel like 6 episodes already this is just going so fast. That's what I love about this show.

Loved the crossover. I thought that they'd be dealing with one bad guy but it was 2 separate bad guys which was interesting. My favorite thing was seeing the 2 teams interact they're so different but also similar in some ways. This episode was pretty funny. Barry has been a show off with his powers and just charging in thinking he can take them. But Oliver was right that he needed to be more careful and survey the area. Barry may have powers but he's not invincible and he can still be hurt I think we learned that last episode when he lost his powers. It was cool seeing Barry angry and kind of dark. I feel like this Metahuman didn't make people angry he kind of just enhanced It like a lot. So Barry and all those other people all had anger but they would never act on it and it wasn't that strong until this guy came along and enhanced it for them. I loved the fight between Barry and Oliver and how Diggle, Cisco, and Caitlin were talking about who was going to win. When I was watching the fight I just kept thinking it looked like something from a video game just the way the they moved and the slow motion of it. It just seemed like something you would see in a trailer for a video game with superheroes. That's not a bad thing I actually thought it was really cool and It was one of the reasons I like the fight so much. The Flash is just so much lighter than Arrow. Here they deal with stuff and fight bad guys but it's still all light and funny and it was great seeing the arrow team in that world because we hardly ever see them smiling and making jokes. My favorite thing was Iris staring at Oliver and he being on her 3 list. It was just funny. I liked that we brought the girl Oliver got pregnant back in and showing that she has a kid. It was a good time to bring it up since they were in the city. I'm not sure how I feel about that storyline yet so I'll wait to see where it goes. I usually don't like when the characters in these types of shows especially have kids because I never know how they'll fit into the world and I feel like it changes who the character is and I usually don't want that. I'm afraid of it in this show especially just because of who Oliver is and that the show is just show dark but I'll see where the story goes and this show is amazing and have faith in the writers that they'll make It work and whenever it's brought up again it will be amazing. I can't wait till the winter finale. I'm so excited to see the reverse flash and getting to know more about what happened to Barry's mom. I'm also to see Ronnie back and as firestorm. I've been wondering when he'd be introduced as Firestorm and come back to the show since we met Ronnie in the flashback. I've actually been waiting to see him since I found out Robbie Amell was playing him. I can't wait to see him and his character and I'm especially looking forward to Caitlin's reaction and how she handles it.

Marissa

I really liked this episode. I loved seeing Skye kick some ass it's about time she got a great fight scene. Skye has always been my favorite character but her being able to fight and getting in on the action makes me love her even more. I just keep wishing we saw more of season 1 Skye because she could be funny at times and that was the version that made her my favorite character. I'm not sure if Mack is dead. The way things were going I figured he would die and I think he is dead but I won't be 100% sure until we see a body. Mack wasn't Mack when he fell down the hole so maybe he lived. I don't know but I've learned that if you don't actually see a body then they're probably still alive. Even when you see a body they're sometimes still alive. I like Mack and I like the way he is with Fitz. If he's actually dead then I think his death will be used to bring Fitz and Simmons back together. I really miss them together and this episode made progress in their relationship but also distant it with Fitz leaving the lab and moving to the garage. Skye asked Ward to pick a side and he said he already had. I definitely don't think he's sided with Hydra but I also don't think he's sided with SHIELD I think the side he's on is Skye's. Which means that he'll help her and protect her. Whether he has to work with Hydra or help out SHIELD I think he'll always chose her. He loves her. He's promised to never lie to her again and so far he hasn't. Ok I've never read comics so I don't know anything about the Marvel universe except for what I learn in the movies and shows. So everyone has guessed that Skye is an Inhuman and are even more sure of it since they've mentioned the Kree. So what are the Inhumans? Are they aliens or are the humans just special? I'm really confused about it. I tried to research it to find out about them and I thought it said they were aliens but I can't remember. Then in this episode Reyna said that she and Skye were human but they had the potential to be more. Skye's mother never aged and her father is like strong or something. So I'm so confused about what Skye is and this whole thing. Can someone explain it to me and help me understand? I can't wait till the next episode. I've been waiting all season for Skye to meet her father. I actually like her father because sure he's totally crazy and has killed people. But like Reyna has said all he's ever wanted was Skye. He loves his daughter and just wants her back. There's nothing wrong with that. All he does is lose his temper but what Reyna said about him made him sound like he's not actually a bad guy he's just misunderstood.
