  • Absolutely brilliant

    This episode potrayed great acting skills from both: Thelma, Leon and of course Ella.

    Leon finding out Ella's secret was cleverly written and his tears I admit had me feeling so sorry for him. He showed himself to truly have matured more by standing by Ella and doing whatever it takes to help her.

    Thelma was of course brilliantly acted by Jemima Rooper. Her lines and acting were on time and as usual top notch.

    Ella, ok I have to admit I knew she was going to be ok in the end but even then I still had my doubts after what happened to Cassie and everything.

    Poor Max I truly felt awful for him :(

    Alswo OMG Malachi :D:D:D:D nothing I can complain about there whatsover.:D He is brilliant and another great add to the cast.

    Azazeal was back in the frame after not really seeing him much this season and was unusually funny. His and Jez (Sam Troughton) are a good paring and their performance together with reference to Reservoir dogs was absolutely terrific.

    Overall I think this story now takes the season to a new level and only time will tell what happens next.

    Coming up on Hex... Ella meets Malachi and realises he is the one she is destined to kill afterall.moreless
  • ok i admit it i cried

    tom is so naive. that\'s the first thing i have to say. the second:

    roxanne deserves to be in a barrel with rotting fish.

    jez finds out ella\'s location by these 2 delightful persons, and goes to find ella... meanwhile at the pub, leon gets defensive on the subject of ella. to be continued.

    ella stabs jez in the neck with scissors, then runs into the street, where she collapses.

    a woman finds her, and calls the police. by now thelma is frantic and makes a decision: she must tell leon everything.

    leon finds her, and ella tells thelma in heartbreaking honesty,that without her powers she will age... the years will catch up with her...all 500 of them. and takes her to the hotel where thelma spikes his tea (yes. tea) with a potion that makes him able to see the dead. like thelma.

    when he sees her he freaks. he storms into the bathroom, where he bursts into tears.

    in bed, ella is aging...

    i won\'t say anymore, except that ella and leon admit some things...

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (18)

    • (After Ella stabs Jez in the neck)
      Azazeal: We should look out for a change in the weather because God must be pissing himself with this.

    • Thelma: (To Leon) I don't know if this is going to help, but here goes. Jez isn't a priest, he's a Nephelim, a fallen angel. Now that may sound odd, but if you think about it, it makes perfect sense. I was sacrificed by one, Felix was kebabed by one, Cassie went the whole hog and slept with one. She was a witch, and Malachi's half demon...This probably isn't helping, is it?

    • (About Leon)
      Thelma: Let him see me for himself.
      Ella: You can't give him that knowledge Thelma, you'll ruin his life.
      Thelma: As opposed to just endangering it?
      Ella: Why do we keep having this conversation?
      Thelma: Because you know it's right.
      Ella: Because you're lonely!
      Thelma: Believe me, if I wanted to pick one human to commune with it wouldn't be Leon.

    • Ella: You're gonna have to kill me.
      Leon: Great. And this is something you've done before, hmm? Just part of an average Friday night?

    • Jez: I'm in control of the school.
      Azazeal: Well that's all right then, we'll forget about the war with heaven and teach the kids geometry instead.

    • Azazeal: I don't think I need to remind you how dangerous it is out there.
      Malachi: Don't worry, I used a condom and the needles were clean.

    • (Leon has locked himself in the bathroom)
      Thelma: I'm waiting out here until you come to your senses. Don't think you can outwait me, I've got all eternity on you.

    • Azazeal: (About Ella) I'll say this one more time then, sweet child, I'll tattoo it on your heart from the outside in. While she is on the streets, you are to stay here, is that clear?
      Malachi: Crystal.

    • Thelma: You look like death.
      Ella: I've met death. I'm much better looking.

    • Max: (To Ella) I didn't think it was possible for you to look worse than you did yesterday.

    • Leon: I know you're not real.
      Thelma: Leon...
      Leon: Stop haunting me!

    • Ella: Without my powers, I'm mortal.
      Thelma: What does that mean?
      Ella: How many 500-year-old mortals do you know?

    • Thelma: Gross! I may be dead, but I'm not straight!

    • Leon: (While watching Ella and the Fairy fight) People would pay good money to see this.

    • Azazeal: Let's imagine I am Mr. Pink.
      Jez: I think you will find it's Mr. Blond.

    • Azazeal: (About Malachi) He has no respect for the past.

    • Leon: I can't believe I am talking to a ghost.
      Thelma: Tell me something I don't know.

    • Ella: (About Leon) He won't understand!
      Thelma: He has already given up everything for you!

  • NOTES (1)


    • Thelma: Don't worry about it. I've watched so much ER I'm practically qualified.

      ER is a show about doctors lives who work in an emergency room in Chicago.

    • Azazeal: Let's imagine I am Mr. Pink.

      This is a reference to cult classic film Reservoir Dogs by Quentin Tarantino. The particular scene they are referring to involves torturing a policeman for information by cutting off his ear (just as Azazeal is about to do to Max in this scene).
