In this episode, Fitz tries to call Mellie’s bluff except she’s not playing. She outs his affair to the press. Cyrus is stressed, James gets a new job, and Olivia is doing typical Olivia things like letting herself be “earned” in 22 minutes and calling people who disrespect her her best friend. Jake is an absolute pleasure and B613’s lead guy continues to make a nuisance of himself.
First and foremost, I don’t care about Bonnie dying. That’s not the part that pisses me off and has me in a rage. It’s the stuff that came before. The stuff to do with Elena, of course.
So Bonnie didn’t get to say goodbye to Jeremy. Still. Even though the veil was dropped because of her. Elena gets the pay off and is the only one who gets it. Elena got to run the emotional gamut up to and including wanting Jeremy to STAY dead and they still reach back and give her a goodbye.
And then it got better. Bonnie wants to bring Jeremy back, and she wants to bring him back for Elena, because Elena needs him, and this was her plan all along.
THIS is what I meant when I said I don’t trust the show with regards to what they’re doing with Beremy. They were acknowledging Bonnie’s feelings for Jeremy (and Jeremy’s feelings for Bonnie) only up to a point. This is why the most anyone ever said since he died was that she “cares” about him. They used Beremy, acknowledged them just enough to keep the plot moving but in the end it was.all.handed.to.Elena. After saying “I feel this way about you” and saying “I’m glad we’re here together” and saying “Doesn’t bother me” and saying “Fuck the cure, heal Bonnie first” Jeremy 1) goes to Elena first when she wasn’t in any trouble all that time before but (most egregious) 2) SEES BONNIE AND ALL HE GIVES HER IS A HUG!
JP and Narducci introduced their backdoor pilot and forgot to introduce most of the new characters (and re-introduce characters where appropriate). We meet Sophie and Camille but learn nothing personal about them. We don’t get to know Hayley even a little bit more than we did while she was on TVD, but we find out she’s pregnant thanks to a loophole in Klaus’ sperm. Marcel is king of the quarter, but it’s unclear why he’ll be such a bother for Klaus since he’s so killable.
This episode has no stills? I didn’t realize that. Anyways, I’m out of town at the moment, but I’ll be back on Sunday night. Feel free to speculate about this episode and to post the short and extended promos in the comment section. And the webclip, too, if it comes out before Sunday night.
See you then! I hope the Bonnie scenes in 4.21 weren’t a total let down after episode 19!
In this episode, we see how Huck became involved with B613 and why being put in a box broke his psyche for a bit. We learn that he had a family he was made to forget – a wife and child – and that Charlie might not be as bad we’d thought. Meanwhile, Fitz is demanding Olivia’s forgiveness and another chance. Cyrus is trying to have Liv killed, and Mellie is contemplating her next desperate move to bring Fitz back into the fold. After four monologues, only one of which was completely focused on what Huck actually needed, he is able to pull out of his breakdown.
