Teen Wolf, S6E1: “Memory Lost”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Ok, I was out of town when the season started, so running a little behind.  Still mopping up tears from this being the last season.
  • It’ll be interesting to see how they work in O’Brien’s absences for “Maze Runner” and his injury, although it kind of sounds like he disappears right after the beginning for who knows how long.
  • If there’s one thing you can depend on in “Teen Wolf,”, it’s that everyone but Mason has a crappy car.
  • Northern lights?  For some reason I thought Beacon Hills was in SoCal.
  • I feel like Hayden has been around Beacon Hills long enough to know strangers are always bad news.

  • That’s a pretty big assumption to make, Scott, considering it was probably a couple months ago you saved everyone in town from getting killed by chimeras and the Beast.
  • Wow, Sheriff Stalinski really has embraced the whole supernatural methodology.  Wasn’t it a thing that the nails-into-the-neck thing could give you brain damage or something?
  • Yeah, it seems like if you’re in a car, you shouldn’t worry so much about outrunning a guy on a horse.
  • Last title sequence! So sad.
  • Oh, the parents got front billing!  Yay!
  • Kinda unfortunate that no one seems able to hang onto both parents tho, if you think about it.
  • I guess everyone’s pretty used to seeing Malia naked?
  • I think I’ve seen bullet holes in windshields before, and they didn’t look like a cannon ball went through them.

  • Poor disbelieved Stiles.
  • While I love me some Stiles, I’m never a fan of these segments where he’s so goofy, he looks like a complete idiot.
  • It’s like it’s been so long since Stiles got to be Fun!Stiles! They occasionally forget how to do him.
  • Liam a little busy for Scooby activities.
  • New Physics teacher!  I trust him.
  • Man, Lydia always gets beat up.
  • Fell right on the hole in her skull, even.
  • How did they come across this house, from the car with the magic bullet again?
  • The captions aren’t working on this episode, which is killing me.
  • Oh it’s the kid’s house…where he was apparently living on his own with ghosts?
  • Ask not for whom the ghost cowboy comes Stiles–he comes for thee.

  • Ok, if all the compasses were doing it, why did you have to steal the teacher’s?
  • Liam, I’m not sure popular vote is how one becomes the alpha.
  • Poor helium thief guy. We hardly knew ye.
  • NOOO STILES!  TELL SCOTT WHATEVER YOU WANT NOW!  DON’T WAIT!
  • Man, that scene with his dad was a heartbreaker.
  • Oh Stiles.

Once Upon A Time, S6E8: “I’ll Be Your Mirror”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.
Spoiler Thoughts:
  • Ok, back after a couple weeks off. I see we are still in Ladyhawke mode. 
  • Had we established Regina had powers over all mirrors?  That seems like it would have come in handy for her in the past. 
  • Actually, this might be the best Snow and Charming’s relationship has ever been. 
  • Henry and Violet are so undramatic for such a constantly tumultuous romance. 
  • Man, Regina really isn’t firing on all cylinders lately. 
  • I feel as though Henry and Co. might have come up with tells for each other by now, in case of shape shifters. 
  • Oh man, Belle. Why in God’s Name would you think Zelina gives a rat’s ass about you or your baby?
  • Too bad the Will Scarlett dude from Wonderland’s contract apparently ran out, since he used to be the best thief in town. 
  • Belle now turning to full-out villain, as she guilt-trips some guy she doesn’t even know into sacrificing himself for her and her baby. 
  • The real person responsible for her sitch is, of course BELLE, and her chronically bad decision-making process. 
  • Still don’t get why Gold is so quick to get into bed, figuratively and literally, with the Evil Queen, when it seems clear it would serve him better with Belle to side against her. Isn’t she his whole purpose now?
  • Why does Evil Queen keep looking like she’s tearing up every time she talks to Henry?  Surely she can’t be capable of good impulses, the way Regina is capable of bad? 
  • I thought she was just the evil bits, not a fully developed person. 
  • Oh, oops. No one forgets a slouching nag. 
  • Shouldn’t Belle have a key to the shop by now?
  • I see Henry has the same success rate as his moms. 
  • I think they have had better dragons before. 
  • Did Emma just try stopping this dragon by throwing a rock at it while it flew by?
  • Ok, I thought they had a plan of some sort. Why did they start screaming for Henry to help them?
  • Henry:  Still the smartest guy in the room. 
  • Good thing Hook has so much practice shaking off concussions by now. 
  • Uhm, did we forget about the Dragon, who’s still stuck back there in the mirror?
  • Without his heart?
  • Jasmine might feel better about herself if she’d seen Belle try to talk Gold out of helping Emma get Hook back from the Underworld. 
  • Belle, don’t you think struggling before he slapped the cuff on you would have been more useful?
  • This must be the easiest week of work ever for Goodwin and Dallas. They basically just smooch and nap for the whole thing. 
  • Henry, you are so worth a better storyline than this cringeworthy teen romance. 
  • Oh ew
  • I guess Evil Queen and Gold were plotting something, but I was too busy pouring bleach in my eyes after they licked each other’s open mouth. 
  • Although, still less ew than Gold and Belle. 

Once Upon A Time, S6E7: “Heartless”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.
Spoiler Thoughts:
  • Oh no!  Snow got transported to the title card!
  • Ok, if you tell her what the potion is and what you’re going to do with it, it might not be that hard for Regina to figure out. 
  • Zelina’s probably going to betray the Evil Queen because she won’t help her take care of the baby. 
  • Oh what the what? Flashback!Charming! conveniently forgot his terrible farmer haircut. 
  • The best Blue can do for self defense is getting big and grabbing an axe?
  • Charming’s Mom is the worst. 
  • Your reminder that Charming’s Mom was such a bad farmer, she sold BOTH her kids and still couldn’t make a go of it.
  • If Belle still tries to make things work with Gold after this, she is the biggest simp ever. 
  • Snow, that sounds an awful lot like giving up. 
  • Charming, thy name is credulous. 
  • How does Blue think the fairies can protect Snow when she could barely protect herself from getting an axe between the wings just now?
  • Everyone looking at Regina like ALL THE EW. 
  • Oh, EW. 
  • You know it’s bad when you grossed out Zelina. 
  • Man, people should not drink just anything anyone puts in your hand. 
  • Charming’s dog is evil!
  • It’s also where Snow went to meet Charming and he dumped her for his wife, but who’s counting. 
  • Are Emma and Hook not in a hurry?  It’s going to be pretty bad if the Queen gets there with the Adder’s Tongue and whatever. 
  • Well that went well. 
  • It’s always been puzzling how Regina seems omnipotent when she’s evil, but kinda limited as a goodie. 
  • I don’t get why Belle doesn’t just tell Gold she’ll abort if he doesn’t help Snow and Charming. 
  • Why doesn’t Regina just put the protection spell on everyone?
  • Man, I really thought those guys were going to have a plan besides death when they marched over to the Queen. 
  • Glad no one in the town was particularly disturbed that Snow and Charming were going to die for them, when they could have easily removed the need by evacuating. 
  • I’m sure Belle forbidding anything means boo to Gold. 
  • Oh, we went full Ladyhawke. 

Once Upon A Time, S6E6: “Dark Waters”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.
Spoiler Thoughts:
  • That’s right Killian. No one will ever look for tools in a toolbox in a tool shed. 
  • Zelina lost her babysitter. Sad!
  • Oh honey, let him go. He’s just not that into Agrabah. 
  • What is Emma, the Town Lost and Found?  I think Jasmine can handle looking down the street for Aladdin on her own. 
  • No wonder the saviors get used up so fast. 
  • I’m not sure pirates historically had a huge grapefruit-based diet. 
  • Parilla is loving this season. 
  • Killian’s master secateur plan lasted all of about five minutes. 
  • I’ve seen Nemo, sir, and you are no James Mason. 
  • I really thought he was going to say “purpose,” instead of “family.”
  • I have still never bought the idea that Hook was so attached to Mila that he took on this life-long vendetta against Rumple for her. 
  • I tend to think his hand was kind of a bigger loss. And his pride. 
  • I guess Henry hasn’t been caught up on his Walt Disney Studio Live Action film catalog. 
  • Ugh. Belle is such a sap. 
  • Henry seems a little too bright to be so totally swayed by the Evil Queen so fast. 
  • I like how Nemo doesn’t pay attention to the huge monster or the flailing and screaming until someone actually says “Nemo.”
  • He’s mastered the art of selective attention. 
  • Carlyle and Parilla’s scenes are always my favorites. Such good takes on the different aspects of menace. 
  • Emma’s kind of fond of parking on the wrong side of the road. 
  • Maybe the ultimate problem with the savior, is that they inhibit people from saving themselves. 
  • Henry’s getting pretty big to still be playing the kid card. 
  • Well that could have gone better. 
  • The Jones family has kind of a genetic predisposition towards regret killings. 
  • So if Agrabah is gone, why’s Jasmine so anxious to find Aladddin anyway?
  • Remember last week when Snow decided she really wanted to be a teacher?  And before that, when she decided that she really didn’t want to be Mary Margaret anymore?
  • Now with the hospital volunteer work, it’s like she’s basically regressed back to Mary Margaret at her most passive. 
  • All she needs is to sleep with Dr. Whale again to finish it off. 
  • Belle’s plot of ludicrous indecision is so non-compelling. 
  • I really don’t get the relative timelines of the Untold Stories. 
  • Good thing Emma and Hook have a relationship based on mutual distrust. 
  • Didn’t Rumple just say his most important lesson was “don’t take what’s mine?”
  • I don’t know how good a student Regina was. 
  • Belle continues her role as the Town Dupe. 
  • Every time actors have a scene where they have to be that close together, my flesh crawls. Personal bubble!
