The writers are doing something that i really don't like since season 3 started. They're sharing Bo with her friends and lovers. We RARELY (i think 3 so far) get an episode with Kenzi, Dyson, Lauren AND Tamsin majorly involved. And after the last 3 its been really just one of the above with Bo. Its like every episode is meant to show us the differences in her behaviour with each character and to show how very different those characters really are. To prove my point. Last epi was all Valkubus. Epi before that was all Benzi. Epi before that was all Valkubus again. 3x05 was all Benzi with a slash of Tamsin and Dyson for the case and next episode will be all Bo and Dyson. Why the mass mixing and matching???

 do watch revenge. I actaully finished season 1. I'm just wickedly behind. 

You ....are not missing much. Quite a bit of S2 feels directionless and only now the show is getting back on track. 

You know i've actually cleared my schedule to start watching OUAT by this Friday night. No worries.You are in for quite a ride. The show takes known fairytales(and not just fairytales) and puts them upside down(which is sort of obvious that it will happen since the start, since you have all those "fairy tale princesses" as capable, independent and smart warrior women).

Red, Snow and Belle are amongst my favorite characters of last decade.  

 

And the obligatory mention of Hook:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also - show has some MAJOR balls in terms of where it takes the supposedly "good" characters, blurring a line between "good" and "evil" quite a bit.

I actually like this - they are clearly building up for finale, giving everyone equal time of character development, since finale has everyone involved.

Totally shipping Hook/Emma tho. 

Hook is litterally new-age Spike, so this could litterally be next spuffy for me :

HOLY SHIT. I've just thought of the craziest theory since i've been watching Vikings. So we know that Valks are from Nordic mythology....and so is Odin the wanderer. Before 15 minutes ago, i've never thought of the Lost Girl Fae world containing dieties of any kind. But we could be missing something here. This is too much of a coincidence. I think Odin could actually be real and...wait for it...be Bo's DAD!!! At the very least he's someone related to the vikings. Remember back when Kenzi was sick. Trick traded what to save her? Apart of THE FUCKING CHAIN THAT HELD FENRIR. And who is Fenrir again? The father of WOLVES (Dyson shout out) and the son of Loki. We've never had so many reverences to a SINGLE people/religion before in this show. And given Tams strong reaction to the reference i think its very much apart of her role as a valk. And the wanderer reference isn't really seen outside of viking stuff. Thoughts?

If we look at the story of Odin, the main place he's refered to as the wanderer is when he goes to Mirir's well for the Wisdom of the Ages.

Read this.

It has so many parallels to Bo's story in the fact that Odin felt that as the most powerful God he had to pay the toll of his eye (which no one had ever had the nerve to do) so as to save the world from darkness. Bo's potential to be the mosst powerful fae is unprecedented. She kinda looked godly there for a sec in season 2 when she made the whole "I am the apha and omega" speech. Maybe a huge sacrifice is required from the wanderer to acheive some ultimate goal, which is why Tams was so freaked.

yeah, the viking connection has been known since Season one.

It's a decent show:)

 

Although the lead actress is sorta below average. 

Also, there is a lot of unoriginality. Dark and Light side in something made in the 201x's? Five families? da fuq o_O

 

Like Lazyboy said, "Creativity is great, but plagiarism is faster".

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
