The Secret Circle Couple: Episode 4

by The Girl

Continuing on my post about Faye & Melissa from The Secret Circle. Welcome to post two of what is obviously going to need to be an ongoing series:

Episode 4: Heather

Some questions are answered by Heather Barnes, but more are raised. Who cares about the parents & the past, what was going on with Faye & Melissa in this episode?

1. Melissa helps Faye open her locker with their new bound magic. What a helpful girl.

2. Faye tells Melissa how she really feels. “Look. I know you like this guy, but we both know it’s not going to last.” Oh? Why’s that I wonder?

3. Faye tries to show her support for Melissa & her beard, Nick. “The last thing I want is for you to think I was jealous of him.” The image below is what is referred to as “a knowing smile”

4. While making out with Nick, Melissa literally says Faye’s name. It may be because she can see her being attacked next door. Maybe. She does however push Nick off of herself to run to the window!

4. After the crazy incidents of the night, Melissa say to Faye, “I’m glad you’re alright.” With some touching. Nick glowers.

4. As any respectable girlfriend would, Faye says to Melissa, “Come on I’ll give you a ride home.”

Alright! Looks like we’re still going strong on Faye/Melissa front!

The Secret Circle Couple

by The Girl

So we’re three episodes into The Secret Circle and there is one storyline that has me very intrigued.

Faye & Melissa.

From  the way things have been going I’m being led to believe that they are setting Faye & Melissa up as a couple, & I’m believing it alright!

I mean, it seems incredibly blatant that they are either already a couple or are soon going to be. But then sometimes I feel like that can’t actually be happening. Like Rizzoli & Isles, where it’s so apparant & you forget that it’s not part of the story. But then when you stop to think, you are aware that in the end it’s not going to turn out like we all expect.

So, really, I’d just like to know. Are Faye & Melissa the next Circle Couple? Let’s go to the evidence!

Episode 1: Pilot

1. The first time we see either Faye or Melissa they are together. Aw cute!

Episode 2: Bound

Episode 2 is our first look at the Nick & Melissa’s secret hook-ups. At one point while getting dressed, Nick asks Melissa

2. “Do you always listen to Faye?” (The answer to this questions is yes.)

And Melissa tells Nick

3. “Don’t tell anyone about this” (And by “anyone” she means “Faye,” of course)

4. At school, Faye & Melissa are lab partners (standard) & start doing magic together, which in The Secret Circle world is…ya know…bow chicka bow wow. The lab scene also has the best line of all time…or just for the purposes of this post:

Melissa: What are you doing?
Faye: Experimenting. Try it.

Spit-take worthy or what?

5. Diana is trying to convince Faye to Bind the Circle, but of course she puts up a fight. So Diana asks Melissa, “Can’t you talk to her?”

6. Melissa running to catch up with Faye

Next up is hands down my favorite scene so far in the series.

7. Ring toss. Or as it is now know, Flirty Ring Toss.

8. Nick & Faye are taking hits off a potion & being stupid. Melissa looks annoyed….and jealous.

9. At a party, Melissa watches Nick & Faye dancing. She looks absolutely miserable.

10. When Nick starts getting a little handsy, Faye says, “It’s not going to happen. Do you honestly think I would get with you?” Faye promptly walks over to Melissa.

11. Faye hands Melissa her solo cup. Melissa takes it without looking or question.

Episode 3: Loner

Melissa asks Nick to the school dance, which for now, we will disregard.

12. Nick asks Melissa, “What if Faye finds out?”

13. Faye & Melissa are doing “magic” together again. This time moving a phone across the floor.

14. Nick makes a lame comment, “I’ve got an idea what we can do with the three of us.” Faye responds, “Dream on, Nick”

15. Faye & Melissa argue about going to the school dance & whether or not it is lame.

16. Melissa tries to get Faye to come! Ah hah! Asking Nick was all a ruse!

17. At the school dance, Faye’s hilarious “Melissa!”

18. Melissa is looking all sad, so this conversation happens:

Faye: Did you come here for Nick?
Melissa: No!
Faye: Hey did something happen?
19. Faye confronts Nick, “And if you’re going to date Melissa. Treat her right. She deserves better. So do it right or get lost.”

And finally, the ultimate:

20. Nick & Melissa happily walk away together from the school. Faye looks on, proud of whipping Nick into shape. She smiles, then the smiles faulters!

So yes, they may be setting up a Melissa-Nick-Faye love triangle. But I prefer to think Nick is not a variable is this equation. Faye & Melissa as a couple seems like the way they should go/already are going!

Here’s a little diagram of what they are possibly trying to, but what is being conveyed.

Now excuse me while I go watch some ring toss.

I CAN’T EVEN begin to tell you how much I love these recaps

by The Girl

To continue on the Skins posting

If you, like me, watch any combination of the shows below,

  1. Skins
  2. US Skins
  3. Glee

then you should definitely read the recaps over at rophydoes. They are absolutely hilarious & at the same time very insightful. But more importantly they are absolutely hilarious.  And who doesn’t love a good macro!? And by “macro” I mean Australians. And by “Australians” I mean surprise Sophia. And by “surprise Sophia” I mean Angel Katie. (I think I’m getting locked on)

And I will just overlook that fact that they hate Holly Holliday (Gwyneth Paltrow on Glee). I don’t understand how you can dislike someone who takes away screen time from Will freaking Schuester. DREAM COME TRUE.

And now for your viewing pleasure! GIFs of Rin & Sophy doing some of their favorite yahoo emoticons (as seen in their video & used in all their posts)! Making a gif of actual real life people just took the creepy level up a couple thousand notches!

GRΣΣK: The Final Episode

by The Girl

The series finale of Greek aired this past Monday on ABC Family and I seriously almost cried at least ten times. Man, I am going to miss the kids at Cyprus-Rhodes University.

This was the fourth season of Greek, which I think surprised everyone. That an ABC Family show could last that long & be pretty much great throughout its entirety. (It had its ups & downs, but what show doesn’t?) Here are a few examples of other shows that lasted four seasons:

  • The OC
  • Everwood
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Felicity
  • Heroes (well, it kind of ended…?)
  • Ugly Betty
  • Ed

Pretty good company, yeah?

ABC Family recently announced that it will be opening up an additional night of original programming. Made possible by all the successful Pretty Little Liars & Secret Life of the American Teenagers. But Greek was really the show that kicked off the “new kind of family”‘s promising foray into original series television.

Here’s a quick look back (in pictures) at the series finale of Greek:

The last time we will hear that lovely little opening.

Hilarious times in the KT house. Anthony Hopkins yelling “spoiler alert!” to the Star Wars reference was hilarious:

Some great schemes that brought together our favorite KTs (Beaver, Heath, Cappie, Rusty) & non-KTs (Calvin, Ashleigh, Dale, Rebecca) to save the Kappa Tau house:

We got some classic Rusty-Cappie talks:

And some old familiar faces:

And of course there was the saddest moment.ever. The tearing down of the KT house:

One last Cartwright pow-wow on the ZBZ stairs:

A final goodbye with the gang as Casey & Cappie leave Cyprus-Rhodes. (Dale kissing Casey & the reactions was one of the funniest things in the episode)

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to miss all the plays on Evan’s name each week from Cappie. Going to Dobler’s every single night. Dale pushing up his glasses. Omega Chi/Kappa Tau duels. Fighting to be the number one house on campus. Rebecca being crazy. Casey & Ashleigh’s Laguna Beach/Hills references. Nicknames. Rush. Nationals always getting in the way. Katherine Parker. Rusty nerding out. And ALL the rest. It’s been fun, Greek!

How I Mad Your Lover

by The Girl

I finally got around to watching the pilot of Mad Love. The Boy Wonder watched it when it aired & told me I might as well check it out, if not for the cast alone (I mean, come on, JUDY GREER!?!? I’m there).

There was something suspiciously familiar about it…

OK COME ON. We might as well just call him Jed Mosley.
