American Horror Story: Coven – Season 3, Episode 13: “The Seven Wonders”

AHS: Coven: The Seven Wonders

Well, pooh!  I was kind of disappointed with the finale.  It was just so anti-climatic.  That whole last scene, I just kept expecting Fiona to stab Cordelia in the back.  I suspected in the last episode that she had planted a false memory of her death so I really expected more fight from her.

I was happy with Cordelia being the Supreme.  I was pretty sure it wouldn’t be Zoe, that was too obvious.  Also, none of the other candidates were mature enough.  Fiona was probably too young when she became Supreme and never matured after all that power went to her head.  The coven definitely needed someone maternal to guide it and now Cordelia has a place to channel those feelings.

WTF?! Misty Day!  Of all the witches, she least deserved the fate she got.  Every single one of them had killed someone.  Even Nan.  All Misty ever tried to do was help people.  She also got the worst fate.  Is she going to re-live killing the frog forever?

I understand why Fiona was in hell, I don’t understand what Papa Legba was doing there.  He wouldn’t make a deal with her because he said she had no soul.  She didn’t practice VooDoo so he shouldn’t have been the one in charge of her hell.

Kyle is the new Spalding.  They are going to have to do something about his tendency to kill people though.  Especially with all the new girls moving into the house.  I suspect Spalding (where’s the baby?) will help him though, he’s always been about protecting the coven.

American Horror Story: Coven – Season 3, Episode 11: “Protect the Coven”

AHS: Coven: Protect the Coven

Why, exactly, did Queenie even go back to the coven?  She really seems to strongly dislike or outright hate everybody there.  She was mean to Cordelia who has done nothing but be nice to her.

Where was Misty?  Everyone else’s powers have been getting stronger, hers should too.  She should have been able to get out of that crypt by now.

I was pretty disappointed in the turn with Delphine.  I think I mentioned in another post that I thought it was an interesting puzzle as to who was more awful Delphine or Marie and how 200 years could change someone.  I know a lot of people were upset that the show seemed to be softening a truly horrible person, but this is a fictional version of Madame LaLaurie.  This episode completely ruined that.  What was the point of trying to make her sympathetic if this was going to be the end result?  Why not make her horrible all the time?

I knew when I saw the description for this episode that Cordelia was going to get rid of those eyes somehow.  Yuck!

Spalding has a real “doll” now but, being a ghost, will he be able to care for it properly?  I hope it doesn’t starve to death.

All the young witches suddenly having powers they didn’t before is getting a little old.  I thought the whole point of the next Supreme was that one witch would become more powerful.

I don’t have much hope of Kyle and Zoe getting away unscathed.

American Horror Story: Coven – Season 3, Episode 5: “Burn, Witch, Burn”

AHS: Coven: Burn, Witch. Burn!

Just when I start to feel some sympathy for Madame LaLaurie, they show a flashback that kills it. What, exactly, did she do to her daughters?  They weren’t still locked up in the cages by the time they died.  Did she perform her weird experiments on them, or just keep them in there and torture them a bit?  What did she think was going to happen if her zombie daughter did remember her?  Her daughters hated her and she was indirectly responsible for their deaths.  Did she think it was going to be all hugs and puppy dogs?

Who really threw the acid on Cordelia?  I think Fiona might actually think Myrtle had something to do with it, she was hallucinating a lot when she was tripping on all the pills she took.

It never occurred to me that Fiona had Misty’s power.  I know the Supreme has multiple powers but because the Supreme has to be able to perform the “Seven Wonders”, I didn’t think they necessarily had all the powers that other witches have.  I saw her revive Queenie, but I thought she was just unconscious or close to death, not actually dead.  If that’s the case, why is she so afraid of dying? Misty resurrected herself after she was burned at the stake, couldn’t Fiona do the same?

Zoe sure went from wimp to kick-ass in zero flat.  It seems pretty obvious that the show wants us to think that she’s the next Supreme but I’m not so sure.  If there’s one thing I’ve learned watching AHS, it’s that they usually lead you one place and end up in the exact opposite direction.  Is Zoe more powerful than Fiona?  Marie LaVeau said there was some real power in the house now.  Was the chainsaw a nod to Evil Dead?  I really expected Kyle to show up and save her.  Where did he go anyway?

Myrtle’s going to be m-a-a-d when she comes back.  I wonder if she’ll direct her rage directly at Fiona or go after Queenie and the council members as well?  How does Misty know where to go?  She was drawn to Kyle and now to Myrtle.  What’s drawing her to those places?

Favorite Lines:

  • “Fiona wouldn’t like it.  I’d be more scared of her than the things outside.” — Queenie
  • “I doubt it.  You are, after all, the maid.” — Fiona

Grimm – Season 3, Episodes 1 & 2: “The Ungrateful Dead” and “PTZD”

Grimm Season 3 Premiere

I’m so glad they were able to wrap up Zombie!Nick in a couple of episodes.  I know there will be lingering effects but I didn’t want to spend half the season with Nick on a rampage.  He didn’t seem to be as rage-y as the other people that had been affected.  They just randomly attacked anyone and everyone.  Nick stopped and listened to things first.

When Monroe, Juliette and Rosalee were throwing people off the top of those storage containers, I wonder how many of them died?  That was quite a distance to fall.

After the plane crashed, why did they show us the empty coffin?  We already knew Nick wasn’t in it, he got out before the crash.

Grimm: PTZD

For a Hexenbiest, Adalind is awfully squeamish.  I’m kind of over her storyline.  I like the actress but I feel like her character is kind of played out.  Since they killed (or did they?) Captain Renard’s brother, I guess they need someone to stir up trouble though.

The gang is trying to protect Nick, but he was seen by a lot of people.  He’s a police officer so it’s possible those people will see him again and recognize him.  What happens then?

How will Nick handle killing someone?  The video showed that it was, basically, self-defense but that guy wouldn’t have attacked Nick if he hadn’t come in seeing red.

Speaking of the video, what’s Renard going to do with it?  He’s done a pretty good job of helping Nick and the gang but I feel like his motives still aren’t quite known.  Is he really a good guy or is he trying to take over his family business?  Will he use that video against Nick at some point?

Once Upon A Time – Season 3, Episode 5: “Good Form”

Once Upon a Time: Good Form

I always suspected that Hook was a better guy than he likes to let on.  I don’t understand the way everyone treats him.  Why did David assume Hook had never had a family?  Why did they all assume he’s always been bad?  Most people (especially on this show) didn’t start out that way.  Hook can be a scoundrel sometimes but he does good things most people wouldn’t expect of him.  So, why do they still constantly treat him like crap?  If anyone believed in him, he might become a better person.

Killian Jones seemed to be a decent guy.  He didn’t want to take that poison back to the king. Even though he’d pledged his loyalty to the crown, he didn’t want to be a part of killing their enemies in such a horrible way.  After what happened to his brother, in his mind, (I guess) becoming a pirate was the more honorable profession.  I think being around Emma is bringing Killian back out in Hook.  He could have taken Pan up on his offer and saved himself but he chose to save David instead.  Of course, he did it for Emma but he didn’t have to.  Emma didn’t know David was dying.

What kind of work did Hook do for Pan in the past?

Hook is right, David is a stubborn ass.  Why should Hook have had to trick David into finding the cure for the poison?  Yes, finding Henry is important, but he’s not helping anyone by dying.  Also, Snow and Emma are strong women who can take care of themselves.  David, more than anyone, knows this.  Why does he keep making decisions for them?  They will be furious when they find out and they will find out.  Now that he’s cured and can’t leave the island, he’s going to have to come clean at some point.  He honestly expects that Snow is going to leave Neverland and leave him behind.

Yay!  Hook and Emma!  Will Hook tell Emma that Neal is alive?

Who’s in the cage next to Neal?  Someone we know or a new person?

American Horror Story: Coven – Season 3, Episode 4: “Fearful Pranks Ensue”

AHS: Coven: Fearful Pranks Ensue

Ooh, those racist dudes messed with the wrong family.  Why were they hiding out in that barn?  Back in those days, stuff like that happened a lot and nothing was done.  Who were they hiding from?  Are those zombies in the “BRAINS!” sense?  They were physically attacking the bad guys but I’m not sure if I saw them eat anyone.

I guess Queenie got a little more than she bargained for when she asked Bastien to love her.  Why was Fiona so determined to save Queenie?  A few minutes earlier, she’d been all “Oops, I seem to have killed Madison.  Get rid of her.”  I fully expected Fiona to put her out of her misery instead of helping her.

What’s up with Cordelia’s husband other than he’s an asshole?  Is he an assassin?  The way he killed that girl (Kaylee?  Was that the actress that played the young Moira in the first season?) seemed professional.  He had a silencer.

When someone finally finds Alecia’s body, isn’t the fact that Zoe was running in and out of the house going to draw attention?  Did she ever find Kyle?  He disappeared and the next time we see her, she’s being interviewed by the Council.  Where did he go?

What’s Nan’s game?  Why did she call the Council directly about Madison and not go to Cordelia first?  If she was in the house at the time Madison died, does she know what happened?  She seems to be able to hear everyone no matter where they are in the house.

Cordelia really doesn’t have any of the cunning that Fiona does.  She just kept digging that hole deeper.  If Fiona hadn’t come in, Cordelia would have spilled everything she knew.  Maybe ask the Council why they’re there before you start running your mouth?

Leslie Jordan!  I love him.  His characters are always so bitchily funny.

Spalding cut out his own tongue so he wouldn’t be able to testify against Fiona?  Maybe he should have told her why first.  Frances Conroy was so great in the Council scene.  Maybe Myrtle should have bewitched Spalding’s hands before she questioned him.  Although, he told the truth so I guess she would’ve been pissed anyway.

Marie LeVeau is justifying a new war because of what Fiona did to Bastien but she’s really to blame.  Marie sent him to the school and he nearly killed one of the girls.  Yes, Fiona provoked Marie by sending Bastien’s head back to her (anyone else see the head blink?) but what did she think would happen?

If Misty Day shows up, can she heal the zombies?  If she can, does she restore their full health or would they just be alive corpses?  What I’m really saying, I guess, is can she reverse the decomposition?  And won’t Spalding crap his pants if Madison suddenly comes alive?

Favorite Lines:

  • “I so enjoy our talks.  Particularly since you lost your tongue.” — Fiona
  • “If she’s dead, it’s probably because she got wasted and offered the Grim Reaper a hand job or something.” — Queenie
  • “I’ve got a book of matches in my pocket and I’m just dying to light it.” — Myrtle

Once Upon A Time – Season 3, Episode 4: “Nasty Habits”

Once Upon a Time: Nasty Habits

Why, exactly, has Gold been wandering on his own?  I know he told Neal it was because the others might not be able to do what needs to be done but that doesn’t sound plausible.  Obviously Regina would do anything and I think Emma would too, to protect Henry.  What’s he really up to?

Charming is stupid and selfish.  He needs to tell Snow and Emma about the poison.  Don’t they deserve the chance to tell him goodbye if he’s really going to die?  And what if Tinkerbelle or Regina can think of a cure?

I get the feeling that Pan has been pulling strings for quite a while and not just on the island.  He seems to know an awful lot about everyone.  How did Rumple know Pan when he was a boy?  He wasn’t a Lost Boy, Pan came up with that name after Rumple became the Dark One.

Rumple was willing to die for Henry when he thought  Neal was dead but, now that he’s not, Rumple’s not so sure?  Either way Henry is his grandson, his blood.  What does he think would happen to his relationship with Neal if he kills Henry or lets him die?  Neal would never forgive him and Rumple will have lost his son forever.  I still think they’re interpreting the prophecy incorrectly.

Hook and Bae spent quite a bit of time together in Neverland.  Did Bae know about Hook’s relationship with his mother?  Since Bae was living in that cave, I guess he was never a Lost Boy but he seemed to like Pan when he first met him.  What happened after he got to Neverland?

Henry couldn’t hear the flute at first which meant that he didn’t feel unloved or unwanted.  That seemed to baffle Pan momentarily.  Did it put a snag in his plan?  What did he do to the flute so that Henry could hear it later?  If that’s all it took to get Henry to join the festivities, why hadn’t Pan tried it earlier?
