Scene Of The Week - February 9, 2014 - POLL

A weekly feature in which we're trying to find most compelling, best acted, written, directed and just generally great scenes that we've seen recently.

ARROW, "Heir to the Demon", February 5, 2014, Actors: Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy and more
The Scenes: Oliver bans his mother from his life & Laurel throws Sara out of the apartment & Oliver's speech about Moira & Oliver tells Felicity she won't lose him
Daniel van der Veer:
There were a lot of great moments in this week's Arrow, from Sara nearly dying to Felicity revealing part of her backstory, but for me the biggest one was Oliver banning his mother. Although he might have overreacted a little, I think he has quite a good point that his mother has been doing nothing but telling lies. Both Stephen Amell and Susanna Thompson were great in this scene.
Virginia Fontana: Laurel's angry tirade after finding out that Sara is still alive. Completely the opposite of how I expected her to react, but understandable from her perspective. I'm still glad Laurel knows the truth now.
Bradley Adams: Oliver tries to give his speech, words failing him, before telling his mother he knows about Thea. Such a fantastic scene. It's always fun when characters have an emotion but have to show the complete opposite one not to reveal any problems.
Jamie Coudeville: Oliver tells Felicity she won't lose him.

BANSHEE, "The Truth About Unicorns", February 7, 2014, Actors: Antony Starr, Ivana Miličević and more
The Scene: Hood and Carrie fight with the sniper
Sharon Seymour:
The Sniper takes out the FBI agent and Hood and Carrie fight back and kill the sniper.
Also picked by DarkUFO

CASTLE, "Dressed to Kill", February 3, 2014, Actor: Stana Katic
The Scene: Kate, in the wedding dress, stands in front of the mirror
Diana Mack:
Kate looks at herself in the mirror wearing the wedding dress; she looks sad and melancholic, I guess she's thinking about her mom and how much she wanted her to be next to her. Also picked by Virginia Fontana

CRIMINAL MINDS, "200 (Part II)", February 5, 2014, Actors: A. J. Cook and more
The Scene: The reunion in the bar
Klutzy girl:
The scene where everybody reunited in the bar with JJ after she was found. It was so nice to see everybody together again. I thought it was a sweet scene.

HELIX, "Aniqatiga", February 7, 2014, The Scene: The virus grows into some spiky metallic organism
Sharon Seymour:
Scene in the lab where they inject the virus with some solution and it grows into some spiky metallic organism.

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, "Sunrise", February 3, 2014, Actors: Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders
The Scene: Ted lets Robin go
After 9 years of chasing the wrong girl, and suffering a lot for it, Ted finally understood that letting go the things that you love doesn't mean that you stop loving them, it's the exact same opposite, because you love them you are willing to let them go so that they, and you, can be happy. It took him a lot of time, but I think it's pretty clear that now Ted understands love a little bit better: it's not one sided, it's mutual, and Robin would have never been able to give him back what he gave to her, that's why he obsessed, but by letting her go Ted may now find the true woman that he deserves, The Mother, who also needs to let go of someone (Max's ghost).

JUSTIFIED, "Shot All to Hell", February 4, 2014, Actors: Michael Rapaport, Walton Goggins
The Scene: Darryl Crowe waits for Boyd in his bar
Geo N:
The scene with Darryl Crowe (Michael Rappaport) in Boyd's bar waiting for Boyd. Then Boyd (Walton Goggins) enters pretending to be someone else to figure out exactly what Darryl wants. A great scene with two equally great actors filled with suspense and great and funny lines. 

MARVEL'S AGENTS OF SHIELD, "T.R.A.C.K.S.", February 4, 2014, Actors: Ming-Na Wen and more
The Scene: May fights off her captors (picked by Jamie Coudeville)

NCIS, "Monsters and Men", February 4, 2014, Actors: Mark Harmon, Emily Wickersham, Karan Oberoi
The Scene: Parsa is killed
Daniel van der Veer:
Finally, Parsa dies. Up until now, he has been a big part of the season, especially in the two-part premiere and in the last three episodes. He has done a lot of damage to the team, from killing SecNav to paralyzing Delilah. So it was good for the entire team that Parsa died. For Vance, for McGee, for Ellie, Gibbs, Tony and, well, I think even for Ziva.

NEW GIRL, "Prince", February 2, 2014, Actors: Zooey Deschanel, Prince
The Scene: Prince trains Jess to say "I love you" to Nick
The whole sequence where Prince trains Jess to say "I love you" to Nick- New Girl's third season hasn't been as stellar as season 2, it has been mostly ok, but in the past two weeks the show has finally got its groove back and delivered very poignant or funny moments. This scene is one of the funniest moments New Girl has had in a while, taking advantage of its guest star and his image, making all kinds of joke around that; a pointless ping pong match, a trained butterfly coming to Prince's shoulder, and my personal favorite: Prince trapping Jess in the elevator. Prince: "I said don't be scared" turns off the lights and then turns them on again "Boo", Jess: "AHHHHH". That's genius, I have to say I absolutely loved the post Superbowl episode New Girl had.

PERSON OF INTEREST, "Provenance", February 4, 2014, Actors: Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson and more, The Scene: The end scene
Bradley Adams:
Nice to see. Carter's death is still hard hitting, even 3 months later. Also picked by DarkUFO

REIGN, "Inquisition", February 6, 2014, Actors: Adelaide Kane, Megan Follows, Torrance Coombs and more, The Scene: Catherine tries to kill Mary
Justyna Kubica:
This show continues to surprise me, in a very positive way, especially the last few episodes which I enjoyed much better than I expected. It seems strange, because at first I didn't even plan to watch the show (main problem being the triangle aspect of the series, which happens to be one of my least favorite things on TV), but few weeks after it premiered, thanks to some recommendations I read, I decided to check it out and I haven't regretted it since. This week's focus was Catherine. She's quite a fascinating character and the actress who portrays her, does a wonderful job. I have to admit, even after many of her schemes to kill Mary and Bash, I didn't see her actually trying to drown Mary by herself coming. The desperation, the brutality and the honesty in her behavior took me completely by surprise. And then another good twist, when Clarissa shows up, not only saving Mary, but also revealing herself as the Queen's daughter! I'm impressed. Also I loved the part where Bash shows up, helps his fiancé and orders the guards to take Catherine away, calling her an animal, who deserves to be chained up. I think it was the first time since he became the Regent when he took control like that. And as if that wasn't good enough, Mary's words to the Queen were perfectly delivered. Great performances by the actors, really good writing, can't wait to see more.

TEEN WOLF, "Silverfinger", February 3, 2014, Actors: Dylan O'Brien, Melissa Ponzio and more
The Scenes: The Stiles reveal at the end & Stiles calls Melissa "Mom"
Justyna Kubica:
I honestly do not know which one of these scenes I liked best. They're both really great for different reasons. Stiles calling Melissa "mom" was heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time, all things considered. It was a very emotional, poignant moment. But, since it's already mentioned by another member of the team, I can easily go with the scene where Stiles is revealed to be possesed by a dark spirit and pretty much destroys a couple of the creatures (The Oni) looking for him. Now, that's a powerful twist. I mean, I'm sure, most of us guessed something is definitely wrong with Stiles, especially after last week's episode, but still, this was brilliantly done. And since Stiles is my favorite on the show I'm definitely glad to see him getting an interesting storyline. I just love the potential it has. Not to mention the fact that whenever Dylan O'Brien gets a chance to shine he takes it. His performance is spot on and I am very much impressed by his acting skills. This kind of ending for an episode is exactly the right way to make people really excited for next episode. I can't even tell you how much I can't wait to see it. Also picked by Jamie Coudeville
Klutzy girl: Stiles calls Melissa "Mom". I love their relationship and Melissa's reaction. And hopefully this family becomes official soon! Also picked by Macie Potts

THE BIG BANG THEORY, "The Locomotive Manipulation", February 6, 2014, Actors: Jim Parsons, Mayim Bialik, The Scene: Sheldon kisses Amy
After what had been a pretty funny episode, but nothing memorable, Amy gets fed up with the lack of romance and she decides to speak up to Sheldon; honestly, for a moment there I was forseeing a break up (and rooting for it too), but then Sheldon decides to throw a tantrum that ends up in him kissing Amy: the twist? He liked it; it's the first step towards the physical intimacy Amy has been looking for quite a while, and it's a great moment of personal growth for Sheldon, who has become more aware than ever of what Amy means to him. With this I can see him becoming a better boyfriend, though I still expect Sheldon to be Sheldon and be selfish from time to time, but now he can also be a little bit more human, which is the right step for the show to take. Diana mack: Sheldon kisses Amy on her lips! No additional comment needed.

THE FOLLOWING, "Trust Me", February 3, 2014, Actors: Tiffany Boone, James Purefoy and more
The Scenes: Giselle and Luke talk about killing Carlos & Mandy kills her mother in front of Joe
Sharon Seymour:
After Luke kills Carlos, Giselle complains that she wanted to kill him.
Diana Mack: Judy encourages Mandy to kill Joe Carroll, after finding out what he did with the reverend. But the girl stabs (brutally) her mother instead. Joe looks at her almost touched. That was a scary and insensitive moment. Also picked by DarkUFO and Macie Potts

THE FOSTERS, "Family Day", February 3, 2014, Actors: Teri Polo, Jake T. Austin and more
The Scene: Stef and Lena's reaction to Jesus and Jude's fights
Klutzy girl:
I love Stef and Lena's reaction to Jesus and Jude's fights. It's sweet that they're becoming brothers now and acting like it.

THE ORIGINALS, "Crescent City", February 4, 2014, Actors: Daniella Pineda and more
The Scene: Sophie dies
Virginia Fontana:
I was finally just starting to like her, but oh, well! A shock ending emphasizing the seriousness of Celeste's reign of terror.

THE TOMORROW PEOPLE, "Things Fall Apart", February 5, 2014, Actors: Sarah Clarke and more
The Scene: Marla is a Tomorrow Person
Justyna Kubica:
I'm glad this one's finally confirmed. I know that many people, myself included, was expecting this twist, but it was still a great one. Especially considering the circumstances under which Stephen learns the truth about his mother. Marla stopping the bullets from reaching herself, Astrid and her father was a pretty powerful moment. And it opens up a lot of possibilities for her character. That's definitely something I'd love to see. Sarah Clarke is a great actress so I'm glad that we have a chance to watch her taking a more interesting role on the show. And now I'd love to learn more about Marla's past and secrets, wonder how much she really knows about what happened with her husband and Ultra. Also, it was a very good episode in general, feels like the show is finally finding its ground and it makes things much better and entertaining to watch. If only something could change with the one character I'm currently not interested in, it can be truly great.
Daniel van der Veer: Some might have seen it coming, others not. Some might like it, while other consider it inconsistent with her behaviour. However, I think the revelation that Marla is a Tomorrow Person was done in a really cool way. Having her stop the bullets from the Ultra kill team, was quite a way for Stephen to find out.
Bradley Adams: The end scene. I predicted Marla's superhuman abilities back in episode 4. It's so refreshing to be right.
