Week 15! Still a lot of shows missing, but this time I got two favorites.
1. Show: ONCE UPON A TIME
Episode: “The Miller’s Daughter”
Date: March 10, 2013
Actors: Robert Carlyle, Emilie De Ravin
The Scene: A phone call between Belle and Rumple
I know that probably more people will choose the scene where Cora dies in Regina’s arms as their favorite, but not me. I admit, it was beautifully acted and really moving, but I guess in my case, after everything Cora and her daughter have done, I just wasn’t so sad to see her go. Also, I was pretty sure she was going to die for a while now, so I was prepared to see it. Still, was close to tears, cause the moment where Cora truly smiles and seems happy for a sec… Okay, time to move on to the scene I have chosen.
When it comes to the Belle&Rumple pairing, I admit, I have mixed feelings. That’s mostly, because I have very conflicted feelings towards Rumplestiltskin. He’s just the kind of character that I like or dislike depending on the episode I’m watching. Definitely more so than in Regina’s case. But I have absolutely no problem with Belle. She’s clearly one of my favorites and her bravery and the amazing ability to find the goodness in people are quite remarkable if you ask me. And this scene, where Rumple describes her who she really is when she’s so lost and confused, is just the highlight of the episode! Not only excellent performance by the actors (especially Mr. Carlyle) but the beautiful dialogue is what makes this scene so great. Also, we can see a change in Gold, or at least, his will to be a better man, which is something I’m always glad to watch. And I loved how Emma and Neal were listening and learning more about the man who’s usually manipulative and cold.
Quote: “You are a hero who helped your people. You're a beautiful woman who loved an ugly man. Really, really loved me. You find goodness in others. And when it's not there, you create it.”
2. Show: PERSON OF INTEREST
Episode: “All In”
Date: March 14, 2013
Actors: Michael Emerson, Jim Caviezel
The Scene: Finch and Reese in the library at the end
Many great scenes on the show this week, like a funny bit at the beginning with Leon being saved by Bear and Reese (again!) or the conversations between Finch and Lou, but what I liked the most was the moment where Reese and Finch talk about the their lost loved ones at the end.
Such a quiet, sad scene, where Finch quite tragically states he WILL grow old with Grace, just from afar. And we, the audience, just like Reese, can’t find the words of consolation for him. The scene is the great example of just how powerful can such a short, sincere moment with a little dialogue BE. Of course, the performances by the show’s stars are stellar. Two broken men trying to keep living and save as many people as they can, all the while knowing it won’t be enough to make up for what they’ve lost.
NOTE: This scene was also picked by Jimmy Ryan and Pascal Buijnsters as Scene of The Week!
“Last week's episode followed the more traditional procedural format that we were used to seeing in the first season, and it was somewhat refreshing, but as always the storyline continues to advance, with hints of the return of HR and Elias on the cards in the near future. My favorite scene from this episode was toward the end of the episode where we see Reese and Finch debate their relationships, with most of the focus being on Finch's Grace. We have two broken men, who, though they put a good face on, know their lives would be completely different if they hadn't shut out the women they had in their lives. This theme recurs regularly on Person of Interest, but it hasn't been as moving or sincere in a scene like that before. Onwards and upwards for POI!” Jimmy Ryan
And here’s more of SpoilerTV Team members’ favorite scenes:

2. FROM JIMMY RYAN
The Following, “Welcome Home”, March 11, 2013, Actor: James Purefoy
The Scene: One of the followers asking Joe to take his life
The Following just gets scarier, freakier, mote "what the hell??" with each episode, with the highlight from last week's episode being one of Joe's more capable followers asking Joe himself to take his life to make up for his failings. What made this scene all the more (all of the above) was how long and drawn out it was, and how much of the detail that we got to see. There are some pretty dark minded writers on the crew, but they're very good at what they do!
3. FROM KLUTZY GIRL
Grey’s Anatomy, “Transplant Wasteland”, March 14, 2013
The Scene: The hospital is renamed: Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
NOTE: This scene was also picked by Spartigus15 as Scene of The Week!
“In an episode full a chaos i liked that they ended the episode on that note.”
Parks And Recreation, “Bailout”, March 14, 2013, Actors: Rashida Jones, Aubrey Plaza, Retta
The Scene: Ann, April, and Donna singing "Time After Time". It's one of my favorite songs and that was a pretty good version.
4. FROM SPARTIGUS15
The Big Bang Theory, “The Closet Reconfiguration”, March 14, 2013
The Scene: Everyone tells Howard what may or may not be in his father's letter- it was so sweet. It reminded me of last season finale, when everyone held hands as Howard was taking off in the shuttle.
NOTE: This scene was also picked by Pascal Buijnsters as Scene of The Week!
“Seldomly have I been moved this much emotionally by a sitcom!”
Army Wives, “Ashes to Ashes”, March 10, 2013
The Scene: Mike and Emilynn crying looking at Claudia Joy in the casket (tears poor down my face)
5. FROM JAMIE COUDEVILLE
Once Upon A Time, “The Miller’s Daughter”, March 10, 2013, Actors: Lana Parrilla, Barbara Hershey
The Scene: Cora dies in Regina's arms
This just broke my heart.Why can't they just let her be happy
Pretty Little Liars, “I’m Your Puppet”, March 12, 2013, Actor: Troian Bellisario
The Scene: Spencer becomes a part of the A team
Was not expecting that!
The Vampire Diaries, “Bring It On”, March 14, 2013, Actor: Nina Dobrev
The Scene: Elena attacks a random woman on an abandonded road
It was very similar to Damon in 2x12, which of course makes my Delena heart really happy.
6. FROM DARTH LOCKE
Once Upon A Time, “The Miller’s Daughter”, March 10, 2013, Actor: Ginnifer Goodwin
The Scene: Snow blows out the candle at Regina's family Mausoleum! She did it and I'm hoping it marks a turning point.
