That was a really good episode.  Sooooooo disappointed that next week is the season finale.  I'm so unsure of who the bigger dick is between Ember and Umber.

Josh bringing new meaning to the High King :lol:  (not really though, with the opium in the air, he just took it up a notch)

Wow, we are parting from the books at lightning speed. I'm getting a little confused and it's possible I can no longer remember what bits might actually be in the books. At this point it's almost a piece of really good fan fiction; someone read the books and came up with alternative adventures for the characters with some loose inspiration from the books. I don't have a problem with that. There were some things I didn't like in the books that we've done away with, like the whole endless voyage to that island. 

When Eliot is reprimanding Q for giving up the button and Alice bursts in and then back out, the look Eliot gives Q was priceless. And their encounter with Umber was fun, especially the Law & Order bit and Umber explaining the order/chaos balance between himself and Ember. 

Interesting too that Reynard was Persephone's son. I guess I had suckered in to the notion that she was his lover. I'm a little irritated that the little asshole got to live and that his mother didn't do some sort of handwave to restore more of the damage, like bring John and his wife back. Kady got totally screwed in my opinion and I don't think the "best bitches" are going to survive this. 

Q is finally doing the maturing he did in the books. He confronts Mayakovsky, chews out Umber, and does his damnedest with Alice. So I should give the show some credit for sticking to one of the central themes of the book: gifted, precocious kids need to grow up too.

Naw, the books were the 39th time through the timeloop and this is the 40th, that's all.

Well, that's a pickle.  Can they still use the clock to get to Fillory though?

Good ending to the season. Can't wait until next year!

I think that fairy queen will give Cersei a run for her money.

Most best show in universe.     Not dry like other programs.  Moist like a betty crocker cake.   Absurdity but without being absurd.   That's  impressive.  And  Poop plays an integral role in cosmic events.   I was hoping to see more of that grown diaper man living in a huge basement sandbox but then i sort of remember he blew up in combat or something.   They say ffffffk a lot.  That's the "glorious audience's" cross to bear.   But this is so much better than Quantico.

Just watched a replay. I assume the deaf lady is going to be involved in helping restore things next season - why else did they bring her back?

And Alice. Did I miss something? Did we see what she did to the lamprey? I don't think so...

Uh, what does one do to a family of lampreys that seemed funny at the time?

Well. at least we are left with hope with Julia...

I believe the lamprey was the thing (in child form) that Alice confronted and defeated at a playground/sandbox. You know, that thing that liked to eat children.

I was also confused about that until I read an episode review that explained the lamprey.

Got scared this show was cancelled when it wasn't mentioned in an article that listed SyFy's current shows.  But yesterday Dina Meyer was cast in season 3, so whew! false alarm!

Yep it was renewed earlier this year. Don't think the next season is until later next year, so they're probably not doing much promo right now. I am excited though. I saw her character is the Stone Queen--I don't remember that from the books (and we're pretty far off from those now), so I am looking forward to what that will end up being.
