Why do you feel that way?

Curiously, what's different in what you read on The Wrap than what we have above? "More to come..."?

Modwild

Oh. You know, when they were talking about that, for some reason, I imagined it being something a long time ago, as in another lifetime, and it took Anne this long to come into her own. Why? I don't know. Thinking back to the Hale's marriage, it certainly wasn't loving. I suppose it could have happened. I can't remember how far back they said they thought through the addition of Marburg.

Then a thumbs up from you! :-)

I agree. It's nothing like Season 1. Trying to re-do Season 1 would be a disservice to all involved, so I'm glad they're onto something completely differnent with some of my all time favorite actors. Yay me! ;-) You might be the only person who said they didn't think this season would be as dark as Season 1. It's pretty devoid of light. There isn't a lot of laughter or the quips Marty made in his attempts to understand Rust last year. However, with four people, some of them are probably going to naturally pair up eventually, for more in depth scenes. so who those people will be remains to be seen. It's definitely must see TV for me. As will next season be. It's the kind of event series that invests itself in unique enough ways and with such high calibre talent, you can't help but want to see what they do with it. Glad you're here!!

Which part of Anne's story seems like retconning? She's definitely a cradle witch. Did they switch that up last night, and I missed it? John is just suffering from lack of story. LOL Mary, it seems, only need do something once in order to have control over it in the future. Yeah, I'm a lot like that. Haha. As for those elders, that confused me, too. I guess we're to believe Mercy didn't kill them, but instead shoved them into hiding with all of their other friends, of which there are many? That was probably the biggest surprise to me.

Yes, but historically, men get the credit. Making it a point to make women the keeper of the power in the line is something different, thus worth pointing out.

Another good hour of television. I was imagining Yo-Yo kicking himself in the ass when the world of online gaming took off, but it's going to be a while if 300 people is their bread and butter now. I watched a couple minutes of the movie Big from 1988 and the regular game the kid was playing was so archaic, it must take a some time for the online world to catch up to even that. To think it was only 30 some odd years ago, though, and so much has changed makes this really compelling viewing even without the interesting character dynamics, but we get those, too. Not bad!

I really liked all that Marburg had to say about wise people understanding that true power descends through women. Duh. Everything descends through women. You can't have life without women. Women power! I wouldn't have been upset if we never saw those backwards speaking mutant witches ever again, to be honest, and I'm surprised at how underdeveloped Shane West's role remained all season. I suppose it's not a show to showcase a man's talents.

Is it just me, or does he look like he's running away from a revival of The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Ha!
