"Hi. I’m Ted Mosby. In exactly forty-five days from now, you and I are gonna meet. And we’re gonna fall in love. And we’re gonna get married, and… we’re gonna have two kids. And we’re gonna love them and each other so much. All of that is forty-five days away. But I’m here now, I guess, because I want those extra forty-five days. With you, I want each one of them. […] Because… I love you. I’m always gonna love you. ‘Til the end of my days, and beyond.

Season 4, Episode 13: Dark Horse (Or: When an Ending is Not an Ending at All)

We pick up right after the Rosette bonfire, it seems. Bo is pissed, wearing an entirely new outfit, and walking away from Rainer who’s trying to keep up with her and swearing to her that he had no clue about Rosette’s disobedience. Bo turns around to look him in the eye, and points out that she chose him in front of her friends. Got a little something on your face now, do you Bo? Maybe you should trust the people you’re supposed to trust most. I mean, I actually do believe Rainer right now, oddly enough. I don’t know that he had any clue Rosette was sleeping with the enemy. Rainer asks Bo who “he” is, and weirdly enough, Bo has an answer. Really? Because it seems like no one has any real clue. Her whole answer is “Someone even the Blood King fears.” Okay, so maybe about as much of answer as any of us had, but still, I’m fairly impressed she had a comeback. I would have been all, “Dude, if I had any clue, do you think I’d be wandering around people-fueled pep rally bonfires with you?” So good on her. She’s still going with the theory that the Pyrippus is her father, which Rosette did basically seal the deal on. So we can stick with that. As Rainer’s telling Bo they still have one up on her dad because their love is real (aww, and yet, yuck), Bo’s glowstick handprint attacks her again. She asks Rainer what’s happening, and he doesn’t have a clue. When he says “Our marks,” she corrects him. “My mark.” Because yeah, it’s just hers that’s causing her serious pain. His isn’t reacting at all. So wait, do the marks have nothing to do with each other? Like the person who places them on someone can make them react whenever he wants, like some kind of freaky old-time cell phone thing? Then why the light show when they got their memories back on the train? Oh look, two minutes in and I already have unanswerable questions.

RECAP: Lost Girl Season 4, Episode 12: Origin (Or: The “Did I Miss Something” Show)

We open on Hale’s funeral. Well that’s damned depressing, but not unexpected. Dyson is giving a eulogy. Bo and Tamsin sit on one side of the aisle, Kenzi on the other in a fascinator and a black dress with crazy sparkles, her makeup perfect. Her fashion sense cannot be held back, even by death. Sigh. She’s staring straight ahead, even as Bo looks over at her. She’s also still wearing Hale’s engagement ring. That breaks my heart. Tamsin looks—Tamsin’s face is odd, sad, but also maybe not happy to be there? Angry she wasn’t there to stop it from happening? Not in the mood to hear her one-night stand orating? There’s a lot going on there. When Dyson says that Hale “loved without bounds,” we see Kenzi close her eyes and swallow, holding back the tears. Ugh, I feel for her so hard right now. Dyson announces it’s a day of silence, but I’m thinking there won’t be too much of that for the people we know and love, or this would be a pretty boring episode.

Pick a freaking prophecy people! (And I didn’t even include Epona & the Pyrippus!)

I’m actually really disturbed by Lauren’s actions in Origins.

uberfaenatic:

I have no doubt that some will dismiss this as a hate rant, but I actually don’t hate Lauren, although I do have some friends who do.  

Read More

I’ve been trying to figure out how to write this in a way that won’t get me into trouble, and in the end, I think I’ve maybe done it. I won’t speak to the writers’ possible justification of Lauren’s actions, because the season’s not over, and there may still be ramifications, even into next season. I will say that I didn’t like Lauren’s actions in “Origin,” and I do hope something comes out of it in some way. I hope her friends find out, and they take her to task on it. But I’m iffy, for myself, about taking a moral high ground about those actions in this specific situation. I’d rather look at the whole character and go from there. (Also, I want to say as well that I don’t hate Lauren, and I have never been against Doccubus, and I adore Zoie Palmer, who is fantastic and hilarious. In case I needed to add that disclaimer.)

RECAP: Lost Girl Season 4, Episode 11: End of a Line (or the episode where all the awful horrible things happen)

Kenzi and Tamsin are hanging out in Kenzi’s room trying to pick a movie. Kenzi apparently only has two choices, a zombie musical or a vampire soap opera. Really? Wow, girl needs to work on her movie collection. Tamsin asks if that’s it. Girl after my own heart. Oh, no, there’s a third choice. Jerry Maguire. I say go see what’s on cable. But what Tamsin meant was not “is that all the movie choices.” Nope, she meant Bo and Rainer. “Is that just…it?” she asks Kenzi. Well, I mean, unless you want to actually tell the girl how you feel, I’m gonna go with yep. Kenzi tells Tamsin she doesn’t know, since she knows fuck-all about what’s going on with Bo and Rainer. Thinking about it sets Kenzi off, complaining about how their friendship apparently means nothing to Bo, since Bo won’t talk to her. Speak of the devil, Bo appears up the stairs behind her. Tamsin sees her, but quickly shifts her focus back to Kenzi. When Kenzi’s rant ends back on watching a movie, Bo speaks up, saying she likes zombies, too. The look on Kenzi’s face, as she does not turn around, speaks volumes. Bo sits on the bed with a tray as Kenzi calls her out on all the Rainer-sexing she’s been up to now that she’s killed the Una Mens, and Bo says she’s been meaning to talk to her. Then do it, woman! Tamsin watches silently, chewing on a Twizzler. Maybe a Red Vine. Which is pretty much the way to go. Head down, mouth shut. Kenzi asks if she’s going to talk to Dyson and Lauren too, and Bo tells her yeah, eventually she’ll talk to them. Kenzi has serious unimpressed face on. I guess Bo was having an awful lot of sex with Rainer since, instead of having something prepared, she asks Kenzi what she’s supposed to say. Fail, Bo. Fail. Kenzi wants to hear that Bo’s not brainwashed, that she and Kenzi are still besties, and Bo says both of those things are true. She brings up Dyson and Lauren again, pointing out that she has had plenty of other issues with them, so this is basically run of the mill. Kenzi tells Tamsin that at one point they called Dyson “Mopey Dick,” which is fantastic. Bo explains to the girls that being with Rainer makes her feel like she has a purpose, like she’s contributing something to the relationship. To which I call complete and utter what the fuck?! Bullshit. I can’t even deal with that comment, it just pisses me off. She mentions breaking Rainer’s curse and explains that they want the same things, and I have to say, I don’t think they do. She’s going to figure that one out, hopefully sooner rather than later. But this is why she’s in it with Rainer. She’s being a big-picture kind of girl, she thinks. Ugh. So much ugh.

I’m not sure what happened walkingeinsteinwithcleavage but I posted a detailed and some might say meandering response to your latest post and it somehow got eaten by Tumblr. :( So I’ll try again and hope this time Tumblr has already eaten its late night snack:

Evil Tumblr! Well thanks for trying again, and I’m glad it appeared this time! Okay, let’s run through it all. I’m so enjoying this!

I’m so glad you’re having fun with this too because I think about stuff like this and never know who enjoys thinking things out like this. :D

I just finally got time and internet to send this, and I changed up the numbers a little because things got all sorts of merged together, but since these things just seem to be getting longer and longer, I figured sticking with a number system is currently the way to go. I am enjoying all this thinking and discussing, so I threw a bit more in there you may or may not have answers for.

Numbering is definitely the way to go! :D BTW…you’re going to kill me for adding this in the mix, but I’m reconsidering the possibility that Rainer is not Bo’s father.

Why would I kill you? There’s always more to discuss! And this theory has actually occurred to me, that Rainer is another lackey.
