I understand more about what the Dawning consists of, which it's certainly a rite of passage during a Fae's maturing into the world, kind of like a puberty test of sorts. Seeing that Bo is the youngest of the bunch it makes sense that she would be going through this while everyone else around her has already done and passed theirs. The only downside is that this is happening far too soon for Bo, which makes her odds at passing incredibly slim as opposed to the rest of them. Even Tamsin seemed rattled by how they're coddling her into believing that the Dawning is just a regular test she could pass easily.
The entire episode was more or less her passing a huge test by herself, without really realizing she was being tested. Which, in a way, makes more sense when faced with real obstacles to deal with. But it really makes you question just how difficult and challenging the Dawning is and what it means for Bo in the end. I mean, in a way she will somehow pass, but at what cost?
The Wanderer. What could this mean, and why is Tamsin so freaked out?
She mentioned before that when she gets close to people, she has to make them go away. It's a downside to her own nature and ability, something that as a Valkyrie she has to live with and it's incredibly sad. We're seeing Tamsin growing closer to Bo, having a slight affection for her. And once that card of the Wanderer was drawn, she realized something was wrong. She even questioned Bo of what she was "hiding", so this really brings the question back to what Tamsin is afraid of and how she makes people go away.
I like that Tamsin is growing closer to Bo, though. They have chemistry. And I really like them together? I SHIP IT SO HARD GUYS OKAY I CAN'T HELP IT. CAN THERE BE A FOURSOME ON THIS SHOW NOW? BO/LAUREN/DYSON/TAMSIN? I CAN WORK! IT CAN TOTALLY WORK!
Other than that, where was Kenzi?
Obviously she told Bo the truth about why she went to see the Norn, but why wasn't there a follow-up from the ending of the last episode?
Revenge 2.15 "Retribution"
It was only a matter of time before Jack got a little bit of the truth, although it's completely backwards since he doesn't know the whole story. I honestly think that he deserves to know the truth at this rate because he's going to go on his crusade on what he thinks is finishing his late wife's purpose, but it's only going to get him big trouble that he has no idea how incredibly dangerous it is. It's true that it would ruin his view on things, of the woman he loved and Emily respectively, but at least he would know instead of getting into something he shouldn't be dabbling in the first place.
Emily breaking down because of her friend, the person that she loved, was perhaps the most heartbreaking moment of the episode. It was only in the beginning, right after she and Nolan got back from the ship wreck, so all of that emotion was still very raw and open. Her hands were shaking with anger, with despair, with rage. Also, that locket? With the picture of the two of them together? All the cries. ;__;
But I liked that it didn't take her long to snap her focus back to her main objective.
She has a job to do, she has to finish it once and for all. After the hoopla of getting that computer back, she promptly got rid of it, believing it was the source of distraction from her purpose. She needs to take her vengeance to the next level, no more playing games.
Oh, and her foster brother? I wonder what's gonna come out of that. She didn't seem too thrilled to learn that he came for the funeral of what he thinks is his foster sister. Should be interesting.
Apparently, there's been a lot of excitement going on today in fandom. Mostly because of the announcement that the possibility of a VERONICA MARS movie may be happening.
This is rather a big deal, considering that whenever Kristen and Rob Thomas approached Warner Bros. over the years about the possibility of making a Veronica Mars movie they always shot it down because they didn't believe there was an audience for it. Despite, you know, the huge dedicated fanbase and all the raving critics when the show was airing, etc. Well, thank goodness for something like Kickstarter to exist because fans can help fund for the movie, making this possibility into a reality. In a way, this shows Warner Bros. that there is an audience out there, and that there is massive support of getting this movie in production.
I'm all for this. Bring it on.
UPDATE: Well damn, that was fast. It seems that fans can do anything, including raising over 2 million dollars in a single day. O_O
