So yes, it’s been awhile since this aired! I just re-watched it this evening to refresh my memory as part of my attempts to catch up with my shows and postings. This is just some general thoughts on the story-lines . . . .

They shot the wrong person!
As much as I despise Peggy, I wish it was Jeff Fordham the new president of Edgehill that got shot. So many people would have wanted to off him by the end of this episode! The only good thing he’s done so far is threaten to drop that “American Idol” wannabe Layla who exposed Juliette’s affair. It’s amazing how they make us feel sorry for Juliette, who will turn around and become a mega-bitch in the next episode. I did love Rayna telling him the check to buy her and her label out would be on his desk by morning. Well let’s hope this time she can deliver!

Who Shot Peggy?
The end of the episode had some random dude run up to shoot Teddy, and as they struggled over the gun, it fired and shot Peggy. Uh oh! Is Peggy dead? I don’t think any of us will miss her, and the promos leading up to the mid-season finale did seem to make it sound like someone would die. Then again, we also have the Will drama. However as Will was signed on as a regular this season, I think Peggy is as good as gone.

The question that will remain is who hired the guy to kill Teddy? Lamar is the easy candidate, as he thinks he’s in jail because of Teddy. However that is probably too easy. So many people likely want him dead at this point. For some reason I feel it might actually be Tandy. With her father thinking Teddy did this to him, I wonder if she hired someone to kill him in order to make it continue to seem that way? Sure the feds know the truth, but she could feel she has some odd way out of this all if Teddy is dead and can’t speak. The other candidate could be Deacon, but I don’t see him doing this unless he’s on the sauce again. There is also the former mayor Lamar and Teddy screwed over . . .

The Closet Case . . .
Will couldn’t seem to live with being a star and gay at the same time, so he threw himself in front of an oncoming train. Well that’s what it looks like. As I said above, something tells me he lives and Peggy is the one that dies. I still would rather have seen Jeff die out of them all.

The Love Pentagram
This Avery/Scarlett/Gunnar/Juliette/Zoey pent-agle is just too much! I mean I’ve watched soaps as long as I can remember, but holy cow. Enough! Triangles are dizzying enough, this one is mind boggling!

Once Upon A Time Mid-Season Finale . . . Wicked!

Once Upon A Time Mid-Season Finale . . . Wicked!

Posted by Dustin on 12.23.2013 at 7:37 pm

So continuing with my catching up posts, the mid-season finale of “Once.” Henry/Pan did go through with a new curse, which like the old one required the heart of the one he loved most. He used Felix’s heart, though I think Pan only loves himself. I think he took the wrong heart. But whatever, he cast the curse which would erase everyones memories again, everyone except his. How exactly is a child supposed to rule a whole town though? I mean Regina at least made herself mayor. How was he to get any power?

Everyone else teamed up to stop the curse and return Henry to his body. Part of this required getting the most powerful fairy wand ever known, the Black Fairy’s wand. Who? I’m sure we will meet her one day. They don’t mention people and just drop them. When Tinkerbell believed in herself enough to combat and kill Pan’s shadow, this resurrected the Blue Fairy, who was killed in the previous episode by the shadow. She tells Tinkerbell that she finally believed in herself, and that makes her a fairy once more. The Blue Fairy also knew what they wanted and handed over the Black Fairy’s wand. We also learned, through more flashbacks, that Tink and Hook seemed to have a little chemistry back in the past! Uh oh . . . That spells trouble for Hook and Emma. She already wondered if something was going on between them once.

The Black Fairy’s wand returned Henry and Pan to their rightful bodies, but as always Pan is not out. He manages to imprison Rumple in magic shackles, blocking his magic, and Regina realizes there is no stopping the curse . . . all she can do is counter it. Before she can, Pan stops her and plans to kill them all. However before he can, Rumple reveals a final trick. He sent his own shadow off with his dagger. He calls it back and thrusts it through Pan’s chest and into himself, hoping to stop the curse and save his family. Sadly, it seems Rumple’s sacrifice was for not. The curse can’t be stopped! Regina would have to redo the sacrifice of the one she loves the most, and that is of course Henry this time around. The best Regina can do is change things up, make people happy this time . . . Emma and Henry not being part of the original curse are thus allowed to leave . . . . which they do before the new curse hits.

We see a note on the bottom of our screen “1 year later . . . ” Emma and Henry are happy and living in a NY apartment. They have been together this whole time, or at least believe they have been? There is a knock at the door, it’s Hook! He has been looking for her, her parents are in trouble and she must come with him. She thinks he’s nuts, so he tries “true loves kiss” . . . and it fails. He thought for sure she felt the same way about him. She just slams the door in his face!

So clearly Hook remembers, but then again he was not part of the original curse. Neither was Neil though, so does he too remember? Where is he? Back to hiding out somewhere? And what about Ariel? Will we ever see her and Eric again, or were they too much of a flop?

Is Rumple really dead? Well it seems the prophecy did come to be, the child was his destruction . . . it just wasn’t the child he thought it would be. I just can’t see the show without him. Maybe with the curse being born again, he will return somehow? But then would that mean Pan is back? Please no!

The teaser for March when the show returns shows us who the new Big Bad of the show will be, and it’s the Wicked Witch of the West. Ohhhhhhh no! I don’t think I like this idea once bit. That may really be jumping the shark at this point!

Witches of the East End Season Finale Thoughts . . .

Witches of the East End Season Finale Thoughts . . .

Posted by Dustin on 12.23.2013 at 7:10 pm

So I’m FINALLY catching up on my posts, commenting on the various Season and Mid-Season finales. There are a few shows I still plan to re-watch before commenting on. I hope to be caught up by the end of this week though.

On “Witches of the East End” all hell broke lose. Penelope kidnapped Joanna on Freya’s wedding day and was torturing her, revealing that she was actually Athena. She had borrowed Dash and Killian’s powers when they were babies to counter her spell and track her down. With Freya’s powers, she now had enough to finally do away with Joanna once and for all. Fortunately Wendy showed up in time to help her sister, and like something out of Hansel and Gretel they shoved her into a furnace.

Victor, Freya and Ingrid’s father, had talks with both of them. He told Ingrid that Asgard is real, it’s where they come from, but even if it was possible to return, they can’t. He said there was a war, their side lost, and as powerful as they are . . . the ones over there are more powerful.

He talked with Freya and told her that he had something to tell her about who she is marrying. He saw her with Killian earlier, and he recognized him from the past. In every life she’s drawn to a man, and that man is Killian. He thinks just like her, he’s reborn over and over, that he is her soul mate. This seemed to answer the question as to which brother was the trixster and which was she meant to be with. She broke it off with Dash and ran off, but so did he.

The moment Penelope was burned, Dash, Killian and Freya got their powers back. However only Freya knew what the feeling meant. Freya ran to find Killian, but she was too late. She saw his boat sailing away. Unfortunately before she arrived, Dash arrived. With powers he didn’t even understand, he threw his brother around hard . . . possibly killing him? Dash quickly untied the boat and let it sail off . . .

Ingrid ended up being kidnapped by Mike. He discovered that another key to opening the door existed, and it was Ingrid! He made her open the door just as Wendy and Joanna located her. Poor Mike though got killed by the power of the door, I guess he was mortal after all. However as the others watched in shock and horror, someone stepped through . . . I’m going to guess that the person coming through is their brother Fredrick? If it’s not, they are probably in BIG trouble!

The show returns next year for the second season. I’m going to guess with Penelope gone, they will need a new big bad, and it will be someone from Asgard.

Once Upon A Time: Back To Storybrooke!

Once Upon A Time: Back To Storybrooke!

Posted by Dustin on 12.03.2013 at 11:50 pm

So there is ONE episode left this year, and then the wait till January when “Once” returns. The spoilers for this episode are below, along with a crucial part left out that we saw in the previews at the end of this episode.

Much of the show was back story as to how Regina ended up with Henry. Well we already kinda knew how. I wasn’t really sure what the point of this was, other than to maybe drill into the audience that she really did love Henry? She almost immediately learned who Henry really was and what Gold was up to, tried to return Henry to the adoption agency, but couldn’t because she had fallen in love with him. However she remained afraid Emma would eventually come and ruin everything, obsessed with it actually. Dr. Jimminy Cricket told her she needed to forget her fears of Henry’s mother coming back for him, it was a closed adoption, and it would only cause more problems for her as time went on. Taking his advice, she took a forgetful potion . . . which explains why she didn’t see know who Emma was initially. Like I said . . . what was the point of all this? Some of these back stories are starting to irk me at this point, as they seem to be nothing more than time fillers. I’m looking at you Snow and Charming!

In Neverland present, Regina was able to save Henry after Pan tied her, Snow and Emma up to a tree that restrained them based on their regrets. Unfortunately for Pan, Regina has a black heart and pretty much no regrets as to what she’s done. She got free and ripped Henry’s heart out of Pan and returned it to Henry.

Everyone boarded the Jolly Roger to head home. I was somewhat confused as to why David/Charming was going and didn’t seem worried about dying and stuff. Apparently if you blinked you missed the explanation that Gold, released from Pandora’s Box, said he could heal him once they got back to Storybrooke. They also brought some water from Neverland with them to sustain him. I found this online when other people too wondered what was up with David going home.

Regina spelled Henry’s heart so nobody could take it again. Unfortunately Pan showed up to do just that, but not before Gold caught him and sucked him into Pandora’s box. Unfortunately unknown to them, Pan was able to switch his and Henry’s souls. Since he couldn’t take Henry’s heart, he took his body.

Oh brother! Please please please end Pan in the next episode, and for good too! I think the only thing I like that has come out of Neverland has been Tinkerbell. She too is on her way back to Storybrooke. She was given a vial of pixie dust that was found, and for a moment it sparkled in her hand. It’s clearly a sign that she hasn’t lost her magic, just her ability to believe as Regina pointed out.

Spoilers for the next episode below!
