Once Upon a Time and Homeland

Once Upon a Time- Lady of the Lake
We love Snow with the longer hair. There's controversy over Lancelot (also seen in Teen Wolf) being black. We are fine with it. It's not like it's really England. It's a fantasy world. It's another version of the stories. Snow couldn't shoot arrows in previous versions. Who cares? If he's right for the part, why shouldn't he be allowed to play a character who was always fictional. We're peeved that they chose Lancelot at all. He's probably our least favorite character in that mythology. Arthur, Merlin, or Morgan would have been better. Did Emma's shade of blonde change? It looks better to us, for some reason. That's probably the only nice thing we'll have to say about Emma for a long time.

This whole thing with Emma and Mary Margaret trying to protect each other at the same time got annoying, even though it was supposed to be sweet. We get it. They are both strong women who want to be the protector. The ogre was okay though. We were worried that the CGI would be laughable. When Charming's mom told Snow to drink the last sip, saying, "That's what parents do. They put their children first. Someday you'll understand," we sniffled a little. It's even cooler that Snow didn't take it. That was the best wedding ever. So sweet. We're glad Emma's not mad at Snow anymore. Snow and Emma being gone is giving David and Henry time to do some of the most adorable grandson/grandfather bonding we've ever seen. This episode was enjoyable and touching.
Episode grade: B+

Homeland- State of Independence
It's nice to see Jessica not suck for once, like in the kitchen scene in the beginning of the episode and at the political function. It would be hard to wing a speech like that. Also we respect Jessica figuring out that he's still hiding something. We were bored with most of the plot where Brody drove the tailor into the woods. We knew it would end in death anyway, because of the preview last week. It felt like kind of a waste of time. It put the Jessica/Brody romance in jeopardy, but that wasn't going well to begin with. It was weird that Jessica calls Brody by his surname. Did we ever get the reason she does that?

It took forever for Saul to get home with the intel. We're glad the scene where it was "taken" was a fake out. This show was postponing the aftermath of that. If Saul had called it in right away, Brody probably wouldn't have accidentally killed that tailor. It was disturbing to watch Carrie down those pills and cups of alcohol. Suicide is so sad, even when it's fictional. We're glad she threw it up. She's a great character. That was a low moment. She's gonna need new meds now too. We got chills in the last scene just watching Carrie's face. Good episode, but we didn't enjoy the subplot in the woods.
Episode grade: B+

Revenge's review is coming tomorrow.
