Secrets?? Secrets, you say? That
wasn’t about secrets, that was about …well, honestly I don’t even know
what that was about. Before the
grand finale today, everyone already knew everything that could be considered a
secret. Have you ever been promised
a great meal (pasta, steak, whatever you really love) for weeks and then at the
last minute you’re led to the table and it’s…a big round white plate with
a stalk of asparagus on it? I like
asparagus just fine but that is NOT what I was promised!
stop here for a minute and tell you that I have not felt well for the last few
days and I watched the final episode today through a haze of cold medicine, and
I’m still looking through that haze as I write.
And you should probably be warned that I don’t tolerate medication very
well, it tends to affect me more than most people and I normally have to hit the
bed after taking a full dose of anything because it usually renders me unable to
function. So the fact that I’m
still up and moving is a little scary. So
if these observations strike you as being drug induced then I guess you’d be
right in this case. But honestly,
it can’t be just the medicine ~ I really believe someone ran off with the real
ending to this story.
obviously they are going to have to go back and fill in some blanks later,
let’s say, just for example, oh, I don’t know…maybe…HOW THE HECK EVE GOT
TOASTED?? That’s where I really think we were robbed, we knew the
culmination was someone died because they kept telling us that but then, no one
does? But wait, then someone just
conveniently shows up at the last minute out of nowhere – she wasn’t even in
the rest of the fricken episode – and plops herself in the much mentioned
“fifth chair” and that’s it?? Surprised?
The secret was that there was gonna be no logical way to figure anything
out about this story.
secret that I did definitely figure out during the last episode was why Ricky
had to run around without a bandage in public.
He actually had one on at home for awhile one day and then never put it
back on. But anyway, he had to go
sans bandage so that we would be able to see him be healed.
That was exciting. And, wow, the key opened the warehouse door so she could save
him. I was glad to see that
Jamal was saved in the process. I
was intrigued with the key, a little at least, but I’m glad I didn’t bother
trying to figure that one out either because there was nothing to figure out.
No way to see that coming.
really hesitate to even start on Paige and Alison.
I will say that I liked my idea (see previous post) much, much better. And if they could have found a way to make Kevin the father,
then Livvie and Alison would be half sisters and along with Christina you have
an up and coming core family, which right now PC doesn’t really have since the
Scanlons are dwindling away. But,
alas, twas not to be. No, Paige and
Alison are “distantly related” and have no real connection other than the
fact that Paige needed to show up at just the right time to save Alison?
A) Why did Paige make a
stop-off in that particular spot on her way back “home” and B) Wouldn’t
she have saved Alison even if she didn’t know they were related?
I don’t really see where this great secret, which wasn’t really a
secret since no one knew it, I mean, don’t you have to know about something
for it to be considered a secret you are keeping?
Assumedly, they are going to follow up more on this in the next few
weeks, but again, I feel like I was taken for a ride on this one too.
I obviously way over thought the value of the secrets these ladies had.
get back to the Eve/Ian/Amy thing. First
off, Ian is great to look at but he’s never been all that great in the
personality department in my opinion. And
he has really blown it this time, he believes an angel is afraid to die (again)
alone? Tell her to go find one of
her angel friends. And, please,
she’s done it once already it’s not like she doesn’t know what to expect.
And then, on top of it, he doesn’t tell Eve where he’s going?
C’mon! I literally can’t
stand to look at his face at this point. When
are these idiot men going to stop thinking they and they alone, are the only
one’s who can help a woman in need? She
calls, and you gotta run, leaving everything you love and cherish behind to save
someone you hardly know from something that hardly is even a hardship!!!!
(couldn’t resist, sorry!) I admit
I never saw even an inkling of what attracted Ian to Amy in the first place, I
thought she seemed manipulative and rather creepy right from the beginning but
what do I know, I’ve never trusted strangers.
have Amy herself, who apparently came back to find out what love really is but
unfortunately she found it with someone who is in love with someone else.
The other day when she was going on and on about finding true love and
experiencing it before she dies, all I could think is that someone “up
there” better sit her down and explain that true love is not being in love
with someone else’s husband. He
loves his family, he’s attracted to you, and you know he’s committed (albeit
rather loosely) to them, but you want to steal him away.
Now THAT’S true love. He
comes over to help her die again or whatever, she sees the light and doesn’t
do him in, then she literally sees the light and realizes her whole purpose was
to figure out that she can’t kill someone.
Now Ian can go back to his family knowing that he almost cheated
several times and lied yet again about his whereabouts on the eve of his
honeymoon, and that he narrowly escaped getting himself killed for his little
omission to his wife but hey, he helped an angel die for the second time.
Except for the fact that apparently while he was toasting Amy, Eve got
toasted. I wanted this to have all
been for something and it was for nothing, it appears.
Maybe I’m missing it but if it’s just about the fact that Ian should
have been the one picking up the tickets or whatever then I was robbed again.
That kind of stuff happens everyday, but Angels don’t move into your
house and try to seduce every man in town everyday and I wanted them to have
more of a purpose than they apparently did.
the purpose of the chapter/book idea was so that there would be resolutions at
the end and then the repercussions would carry over to the next chapter?
Not much was resolved today for me, they could have stuck today’s
episode in after just about any of the last few weeks episode’s and it would
have made just as much sense. Everyone did the right thing, which they would have done
regardless (even Amy – I knew she didn’t have the guts!) of how well they
knew their “loved one” and then, POOF ~ Eve is dead. Quite a crescendo. They
better explain a few things very well in the next week or else.
Let’s start with…
HECK ARE YOU GOING WITH RAFE????
back, I need him. I also need Ed so
they’re going to have to find someone else to play Angel Wrangler.
I’ll shut up and wait to see if this gets “redeemed” next week.
