Watchers, some wild and crazy stuff has been happening on our shows. Beware spoilers…
Game of Thrones, Sunday 9:00 EST, HBO
We have never discussed this show in the column before, primarily because I never got to see it in first run. This year, however, I am watching as the show airs, and am curious how many of you would like to discuss it. If you have not watched this season yet but do follow the show, you probably don’t want to read further.
Of course, the big shock came at the end of the last episode, where Jaime Lannister, a despicable character for many reasons, does probably the only somewhat selfless act of his life and pays for it dearly. Wow.
Does anyone else feel as though the time flies by when this show is on?
Who are your favorite characters on the show? Is there someone you wish they’d get rid of? Do you have a favorite villain, someone you love to hate?
I like Tyrion, John Snow, and Arya best, I think.
Once Upon a Time, Sunday 8:00 EST, ABC
I unfortunately got behind on the show when I was out of town a couple of times, and it took me a while to catch up. I will say that the grumbling I heard earlier in the season, about the show not being as good, is something I just didn’t understand then, and I definitely feel as though the last several episodes have been particularly strong. What do you think?
To recap: we found out that Emma’s former boyfriend and Henry’s father is Rumpelstiltskin/ Mr. Gold’s son, Bae, meaning Rumpel is Henry’s grandfather. We discovered that Cora murdered Snow’s mother. In order to stop Cora, snow tricked Regina into performing the final act of a spell that killed Cora, and now she has to live with her choice (I think this was one of my favorite episodes of the show). We now know who the mysterious visitor in town is.
Was anyone else surprised by the revelation of the relationship between Cora and Rumplestiltskin?
What have been some of your favorite scenes from the last few episodes?
One of my favorite lines: “I’m not much of a cook, unless it involves apples” (Regina).
Being Human, SyFy
First off, the great news is that the show will indeed return for a Season 4. How could it not, after that cliff-hanger finale?
I will say that as much as I didn’t like Nora there for a bit (her vendetta against Aidan was a bit extreme), she certainly came around when he took the blame for Brin’s death.
Sally turning back into a ghost and Josh becoming a werewolf again were no big surprises, given that those were their original states of being in the beginning of the show, but what happened to them both in the finale was a shock. Where do you think Donna dragged Sally off to? Donna said it wasn’t limbo, which sort of implied Hell. And what the heck is going on with Josh? He is some huge werewolf now, and he was still in that form when daylight came. Your thoughts?
What about those mutant vampires?
And Aidan’s wife — I did not see that coming.
Fun quote: “You are one of the only people I know less weird as a ghost than you are as a person” (Aidan to Sally).
How did you like this season? What do you hope to see in Season 4?
The Vampire Diaries, Thursday 8:00 EST, The CW
The show has been off for a few weeks (it returns on 4/18), but the one thing I must say is that I am not a fan of “flipped-switch” Elena. What about you? I really hope they don’t try to sustain that too long.
Now Elena and Rebecca have teamed up to find Catherine and get the cure, eluding Damon in the process. I’m quite sure that no good can come from that pair.
How do you think this Silas story is going to end?
Fun quote: “Not to nitpick, but we evil villains usually have minions to pick up our dry cleaning” (Damon).
Grimm, Friday 9:00 EST, NBC
We still don’t know exactly what is going on with Renard’s brother, what he is up to.
It seems Juliet is getting her memories back. Do you think she will end up being one of those in on Nick’s “secret”? At this point, I really don’t see how she couldn’t be.
Adalind obviously set out to become pregnant (presumably by Renard), which I assume she will use a some sort of power play. I wonder if we will find out what her endgame is during this season.
Fun quote: “Maybe we got lucky this time and we’re just dealing with a normal, human psychopath” (Nick).
Lost Girl, Monday 10:00 EST, SyFy
So much has been going on, but I find myself wanting to discuss the last episode the most.
I knew something was weird about Isaac, but Lauren seemed so clueless. I guess she just wanted someone human to appreciate her abilities and was easily hoodwinked. But now we know what Isaac is really up to, and his actions have led the Morrigan to state that the Fae are the one true race and she declares war on humans, more or less.
It was nice that Hale told Kenzie of his feelings. I do wonder if that situation will go anywhere happy.
We also learned that Lauren’s real name is Karen, and that she is on the run for some reason. Any guesses?
How do you think the season will end? The finale airs on 4/22.
