Merlin 03x06: The Changeling
And before I get to Arthur/Gwen, I just have to discuss the cuteness of Gaius and Merlin. These two silly kids get into the craziest things and Gaius 'seducing' the princess's handmaiden was hilarious. You still have it Gaius. Be happy with that.
Mad Men 04x13: Tomorrowland
Over the entire season, we saw Don transform from the more media-shy guy who refused to play the game, to one who's totally owning where he is. And hey, perhaps this new and improved Don needs new arm candy to tote along. Thing is, we've seen Don with the brunettes, and I've liked them -- well some of them. Midge (though not anymore), Rachel Menken, the comedian's wife, Sally's teache, but he was always married when he was with them. Now, he's got a brunette again, and he's actually single. So we probably shouldn't be too damn shocked.
I just wonder how Megan will handle all of this and what kind of wife she'll be. Will she be a Jane -- totally oblivious to her husband's woes as long as she gets to shop? Or will she be more like Trudy -- totally in touch with the husband and a little of the pants wearing too? At least she gets along with the kids.
Sally and Bobby Seem to Like Megan... As their Au Pair!
See Don, just because someone's good with your kids, it doesn't mean you should marry her. You should probably hire her to take care of them a few nights a week and then boink her the other nights, but I'm past his marriage proposal. There is no rationalizing Don's actions. I'm sure he's got some skewed reasoning behind it. I just hope it works out for the kids. Again, at least they seem to get along for now.
Naturally, Faye Won't Take This Well
THING IS, FAYE KNOWS ABOUT DON'S PAST OR HAVE YOU ALREADY FORGOTTEN THIS TINY DETAIL DON!?!? I really hope Faye isn't some vindictive bitch and rats Don's ass out because you know her mob connections could totally get him in deep shit. The way he broke up with her, even if she did choose to do it over the phone, was pretty harsh. I really did feel for her. She was just wishing him good luck on his trip and he comes home with a fiance. This has got to be a tragedy for Faye.
But hey, Faye, don't blame yourself. You couldn't have changed Don even if you thought you could. No one is going to change this man. Not even you. Sorry girl.
Betty Is Losing Control of it All
I just wish she'd give herself a break and not be too hard on everyone, herself included. Girl needs to let things out, I feel like she has so much pent up anger within that it gets released at the wrong times and at the wrong people. Repressed woman is repressed. Someone liberate this girl.
Peggy Signs New Business... No One Cares
And when she confided in Joan, I wanted to squish them both and tell them it would all turn out fine. These two girls have worked so hard, much harder than the men and they get nothing in the end. It's really sad. That hug Don gave her in the end? That's a rare moment for them and at least Don showed some appreciation despite his obvious distraction. Don't worry Peggy, I'm sending you great work vibes.
Some Joan, Just Because I'll Miss Her
And that ends Mad Men season 4. My goodness it was a crazy one. I'm expecting tons of Emmy nominations for this one. Really. Yes there were some WTF moments but over-all it was a pretty spectacular season. Some acting awards for the cast please?
Did you like the finale?
What the fuck writers?
What are your 3 favorite episodes this season?
Over-all this season was
Sometimes Great, other times not so
Why the hell do they win Emmys?
Chuck 04x05: Chuck Versus the Couch Lock
Jeff and Lester's absurdity always goes past the line of reason but the fact that they saved Casey when the others couldn't get to him really made me laugh. Of course they once again relate this to getting high, which technically Casey did do, but these boys and their cluelessness always makes me smile.
Yes there was some Chuck/Sarah goodness this week, but with Casey and Morgan owning the show, I'd rather focus on that this week. I'm sure next week we get back to Chuck/Sarah prettiness.
Nikita 01x06: The Resistance
I know Owen just lost his girlfriend but come on, how cute would he and Nikita be together, super spying and taking down Division? And what was up with Michael totally doting on Alex complete with almost hugs and wanting to stop her exercises. You can tell Julie Cooper sees something's going on. So if you're hinting at it, make it happen. Shane West, you're still so cute.
Vampire Diaries 02x06: Plan B
From the start, with the cut-to-cut of Katherine/Mason and Stefan/Elena being all cutesy/hot in bed, I knew it was going to be spectacular. And look at all the havoc Katherine did despite not coming out on camera too much. Promising Mason a happily ever after if he got her the moonstone; getting Jenna to stab herself; COMPELLING MATT TO GET TYLER TO KILL HIM!?! WTF KATHERINE! Don't kill Matt off!!!
Thing is, Matt's been compelled and because Tyler becomes a werewolf after he kills, it looks like this is going to be the end for Matt. AND I DON'T WANT IT TO BE because he and Caroline are too cute with each other. Oh Katherine, the havoc you wreak. Once again, props to Nina Dobrev for seamlessly transitioning in between the two girls. Dammit, she gets to make out with ALL the hot guys on the show. Come on Alaric, you're next.
Meanwhile, Damon too is feeling pain for Elena and their one little exchange still has my fangirl heart all aflutter. SHOW, STAY THIS AWESOME ALL THE TIME AND I MIGHT DIE FROM WATCHING YOU. I swear, I don't know why I didn't get hooked sooner.
Let it be known that I wish there were more Alaric in every episode. And not just in relation to Jenna but just Alaric goodness in general. Preferably with Damon too. You can't go wrong with that.
You know what else was awesome? Caroline effortlessly pulling those chains to hoist Elena into the verbane-filled well to save Stefan. Look at Caroline using her vampire skillz for good. She's going to be an awesome vampire. So please don't kill Matt just yet. OBVIOUSLY, I need more of this show.
