Hart of Dixie Recap: “Should’ve Been A Cowboy”

20140113-202119.jpg

Things are peachy in BlueBell, Wade and Viv are happy, the town is saved and Zoe and Joel are buying a home!

While we did lose Lynly and Shelby last episode there’s still plenty of more action to come from the townspeople. Recap last episode HERE!

Zoe is shaping the people up by doing some cardio and guess who’s engaged, a Belle and not AnnaBeth. Well that’s gonna be a downer for her and Lavon’s relationship. So as she is now on in the bridal party, she is trying not to get fired up. Now she’s in charge of throwing a Bachlorette party and it’s driving her insane.

Joel, trying to get some of his creative juices flowing decides to follow Wade around to write his character after his. Joel is enamored by every action and situation that Wade gets himself in. He calls him a cowboy and gets upset when it’s time for Wade to leave but Wade tells him if he wants to know how it feels like to be in Wade’s shoes, he might as well be in them. So Joel will bartend the Rammer Jammer for the night! But does Joel himself way in too deep when he tries and get himself in the middle of a fight? Looks like just a couple minutes into bartending he gets himself into a “showdown” with Little Zack.

The Originals Recap: “Apres Moi, Le Deluge”

Witches are reigning in New Orleans. Need a recap of the previous episode? Click HERE!

Celeste was a powerful witch, just like Davina but had an unfortunate death and now has been coming back to New Orleans in the form of Davina’s drawings. But what is the meaning of her drawings? As Elijah, Klaus and Hayley are talking about the “all powerful”, Davina is enraged with Marcel throwing a fit, but as she continues to throw things at him she pauses and starts throwing up dirt and stones. The house shakes as well as the whole town.

Rebekah goes to check on her and tells her that she told her to go easy on causing havoc. But Davina insists that it is beyond her control. Elijah knowing that this is a witch’s problem decides to go to them, not until Hayley informs Elijah of what she has done to protect her family. So apparently as we know from last episode, Hayley went through Elijah’s journal to find out where Celeste’s remains were to tell Sophie. Elijah hurt by what Hayley has done tells her that Celeste asked him to hide her remains where no one could find her and never disturb her. Now Elijah’s promise to Celeste is broken and we know that Elijah’s promises are everything.

Sophie, who only cares about her niece, thinks that she must gather more power and must complete the Harvest. With Davina holding all the power, terrible things will happen. Wind, water and fire among other disastrous Earth shattering events will proceed and then it could be goodbye New Orleans. Sophie’s warnings are not taken lightly but Davina and her power are strong and convincing them gets a little easier. Davina’s death is said to complete the Harvest, where the other sacrificed witches will be resurrected, all the witches will regain their power and thus the Originals will lose their power over them. Not wanting to lose the empire they built, Klaus and Elijah go out to talk to certain people on their list.

Rebekah, still on her plan to win over New Orleans goes to Sophie to enlist her on her team. When it comes to it, witches will have their power and Rebekah will have her witch to take control. But could this happen? Davina must be sacrificed but Marcel is too invested in her to let that happen. While he has flashbacks of the day he saved Davina he says that he is done listening to Klaus, kills some vamps and takes Davina with him.

Elijah goes to the graveyard while Sophie tries to resurrect Celeste. Turns out that Celeste was Elijah’s one true love who we had found out about when he was delusional from Klaus’ bite. The night gets intense as time is running out. Davina is nowhere to be found, the Earth is shattering, but she is safe in Marcel’s arms who tells her that no one will hurt her. Father Kieran has no idea where they could be either, to Hayley’s surprise she finds a clan of ware wolves at the church where Klaus takes her. Surprised that Klaus would help out wolves, she discovers that they are part of Klaus’ clan. They share the same blood and so does the baby that is in her. As he leaves he gives her some advice, to just apologize to Elijah, he is a master of forgiveness. Wow, nice one Klaus, looks like there’s heart in there.

On the witches side it seems that they can’t bring Celeste back and they are losing time. As they tell Elijah that there is no other way he stops and tells him that there is one other witch who could provide the power. His mother. Elijah goes to Rebekah and Klaus to tell them the plan and then it’s time to say hello to dearest momma. Clever Rebekah knows the right person to go to to find out where Marcel could have taken Davina. Thierry knows exactly the correct spot and Rebekah seeks them out. Phase one, rain, starts to pour and the beginning of Davina’s terrible disaster begins. The Originals and Hayley along with Father Kieran unite to bring back their mother and finish the Harvest. Rebekah tells them that Marcel will bring her to them.

Davina on the other hand knows that her time has come. She takes herself to be sacrificed. As her throat gets slit, the rains stops. The girls are all laid down and the reaping begins. Sophie does the ritual but for a moment nothing happens. And nothing ever happens. The girls are not resurrected and it’s the end. Davina is dead and Marcel is torn. He has lost his friend, his family and the one person he cared about. Hayley and Elijah walk the streets of the town and she apologizes to him. Though it is hard for him to forgive her she tells him that she lives in the now. As she walks away Elijah grabs her and for an intense moment we all pray that he will grab her and give her the best kiss ever…but he doesn’t. He just gets close enough to want it, but backs away. So now Klaus and Rebekah ponder the loss of the tween witches but wonder one specific thing.

Where did all the power go? Rebekah starts to think, since four girls died, where and who has it now?

Something must be up though, a strange man appears out of the graveyard, the witch is making some strange concoction and other witches are entering New Orleans. As they all gather around, they ask what this is all for, the witch says first of all call me by my real name, “Celeste”! OMG!!

Hart of Dixie Recap: “Star of the Show”

20140113-202119.jpg

Welcome back to Hart of Dixie recap day! Refresh your BlueBell memory with last week’s recap HERE!

BlueBell is under merging problems and Lavon is still not into being out and about around town. To make him feel better AnnaBeth makes him an amazing breakfast but not good enough to make him go out.

lavon hayes, cress williams, annabeth nass, kaitlyn black

Oh heck no! Did George just say Tanzy in his sleep while he was next to Lynly. With a push off the bed George has to explain himself, but all’s well. Zoe on the other hand is being patronized by Joel on her creativity and decids he would edit a speech she was to make at a family gathering.

Shelby has now lost her creative director and the opening of her cabaret club is right around the corner. She is frantic and asks Brick to help and cancel all his appointments for the day. AnnaBeth and Brick are in dire need of Lemon whose scheming and plotting are all welcome at this time of need. So as Lemon is video chatted in she helps the Belles with the merger and Brick with the Shelby, creative director situation. Her advice, get the worst director to tank the opening and make Shelby disappear. Naturally Zoe walks in and volunteers herself! Well here we go!

Day one of Zoe and the “One Cellular Sensation” and she has high hopes for all the cast members. Joel does persist and asks if he is needed and would be of help but it’s a no for Z. She is so thrilled to be directing the show that she doesn’t see how Joel is trying to warn her about how maybe Brick plotted something with Lemon to get rid of Shelby. When he does flat out say it, Zoe says Brick would never do that.

Tanzy is down in the dumps with her beau but George comes to the rescue to tell her he is a jerk. But Tanzy won’t have it as she called Lynly a “crazy-eyed girl”, of course she creeps up behind them which makes for a quick exit for Tanzy. Cricket is out on the town trying to get Maryanne Matthews to stay in BlueBell. Now that her car is broken down Lavon steps in and tells her that the people of BlueBell are unique and they love their town. She spots the cabaret sign and asks for a front and center table as she is a fanatic of the showbiz. But oh boy is she in for a “cellular treat”.

Anyone else still annoyed by Wade and Vivian? Wade proposes a night out at a dive bar and Vivian agrees but Tanzy lets Wade know that she is a classy lady and he needs to step it up for her. Wade changes plans and Vivian has to change them so she won’t be able to go out with him. Though Wade is now over thinking about the hair flip Vivian does that Tanzy told him about. Hair flips equal uncomfortableness.

Lemon is on a good one this episode, via video chat that is. After contacting the Belles and her father, her next victim is Lavon who needs a pep in his step to do something about the merger. Then Lemon is on to George to give him a push towards Scooter and lawyering him out. As the four of them, George, Scooter, Tanzy and Lynly go on a hike things get heated when BlueBell and Fillmore merging talk comes up. George tells him about how they know about the shopping mall, Tanzy convinces George that Lynly might be a bit crazy and Scooter leaves frustrated by the fact that Tanzy spied on him.

While Brick confronts Shelby about driving him crazy and being unable to resist her, she faints and ends up at the doctors with low blood pressure. Now it’s bed rest for her and the cabaret is under Joel’s command per Zoe’s instructions. So it’s a revamp of the “Cellular Sensation” and back to the old 12 minutes of Shelby-inspired cabaret and to save the town!

With Mrs. Matthews front and center the show begins. With a slow start, the cabaret is well, a, um…disaster. But wait! Shelby to the rescue, baby bump and all! In a carriage or should I say hospital bed, and bedazzled red sparkling outfit, there’s no stopping her now, add a kick line and her performance is a hit! Mrs. Matthews absolutely adored the show and discovered that the BlueBell people really do love their town. Merger saved!

Back in Wade town he makes a stop at Vivian’s house to see how she is. Embarrassed to tell Wade what her real problem is he starts to worry. But not to fret, it’s just that she is a single mother, has a little boy and loves her job and just can’t hang like the kiddos do. In George land, with Lynly drunk and asleep, Tanzy and George share a conversation outside his boat. They both tell each other it was harder to see the other with another person and Tanzy says, “sometimes I think i should’ve never let you go.” As she puts her head on his shoulder, the shot pans out to reveal Lynly overhearing their conversation.

Zoe Hart isn’t all done with her “One Cellular Sensation” show. She gives Joel one last song and it’s bed time for them. OK maybe they’re cute together but they ain’t no Zade, or Woe…Wade and Zoe, you get the what I’m trying to say.

Come back next week for another Hart of Dixie Recap!

 

The Originals Recap: “The Casket Girls”

Welcome back to my favorite weekly recap, The Originals was all new and my-oh-my was this a great way to start things up again. Need a refresher before we dig into the new episode? Recap “Reigning Pain in New Orleans” HERE!

It seems like we’ve gone back in time and someone has been killing or should I say Rebekah has been feeding. The opening scene is about Rebekah saving and letting the girls go free and be their own women. Now in real time New Orleans is celebrating the Casket Girls in celebration of women’s liberation.

Davina has her hands full with Cami as she tries to give her memory back to her and this is a very painful experience. There is no denying the chemistry between Elijah and Hayley, as she gets ready for the festivities, Elijah helps her into her dress and suggests that they go together. With the strain between Klaus and his brother she decides that maybe it’s not a good idea and asks him again to help her with undress. Serious tingles between them!

Klaus finds himself in a predicament as he discovers that Davina is missing. He calls Marcel and now they look to find her. Davina on the other hand has successfully brought back Cami’s memories which Klaus had compelled her to forget. Rebekah asks Hayley if anything she said might have driven the little witch away, perhaps it was the discovery that Marcel might in fact had been using Davina.

Guess who’s back now, Sophie and the witch clans. Now that they know that New Orleans is running under Klaus’ control they think that they can get away with some magic and maybe even find Davina. But not too fast, Davina can still sense it and tells Cami and Josh who decide it’s time to run. The sad realization hits Cami when she finds out that her uncle Father Kieran knows everything about witches, vampires and is close friends with Marcel.

Sophie is up to her old trickster way and now has threatened Hayley to help her or else they’ll lose her magic and Hayley’s family will be in danger. Someone by the name of Celeste Dubua seems to strike a chord with little wolf mama. As the town’s festivities take place, Klaus, Marcel, Elijah and Rebekah are on the look out for Davina. Klaus gets a hold of Timothy, Davina’s crush, and calls Josh to threaten to kill Tim if she doesn’t show up.

It’s bad news when Davina and Cami get to the church. After the call from Josh she wants to go save Tim but is stopped by powerful witches who try and bring her down. Davina infuriated summons her power on them, as they rise she kills them instantly with maybe one too many victims, Cami lays on the floor unconscious. As she leaves the church she runs into Josh who warns her about Klaus and everyone else. He then tells her that if she is going to kill, she better kill them all. Rebekah shows up and tells Josh that killing Klaus is bad news and only Davina and Josh will end up dead.

Angered and infuriated Davina goes to meet Klaus, Elijah and Marcel and man-oh-man is she not happy! Her first victim is Klaus, torturing and tormenting him she turns him into his hybrid self and knocks him unconscious, second is Elijah, NOO NOT HIM! Claiming to be the noble one, Davina doesn’t take it and makes him choke on his own blood, two down. Next Marcel, he tells her that he cares for her and is there to protect her but she won’t have it. Three down. Rebekah shows up as Marcel falls and tells her, “us girls need to stick together” her mantra for this episode. Bekah’s words of wisdom about how killing is such a boyish thing to do and that is not her brother, saves Tim and tells Davina that she can trust her but she has to show her one more thing. They head down to where Marcel kept his “trusted friends” and Rebekah explains to her about how even after Klaus was in control he still kept them there. When it’s time for a drink, Tim gives Davina some water but next thing we know Tim is telling Davina that Klaus made him do it and now is dying of poisoning.

Sophie and Hayley escape to the woods and it seems as if Hayles has betrayed Elijah by taking his spell book. Hayley tells Sophie everything that she knows and begins her spell. Back at the church Father Kieran finds Cami and ask if she’s ok, Cami lashes out and tells her uncle that she knows everything.

As Davina and Tim slowly die, Rebekah calls Klaus to ask him how to cure her. He laughs and says there is no cure and she is slowly dying. Funny thing though, Marcel and Elijah have been behind his back and Marcel had recruited a witch to save Davina in case Klaus tried something funny, like he just did. So Marcel tells him that she will be ok but unfortunately Tim won’t, Klaus angered and betrayed starts to ramble but is stopped by Elijah who reminds him that Davina is Marcel’s family, and we know nobody messes with family. Poor Davina is tired and heartbroken and taken back to her room. Lord knows how angry she will be when she wakes up.

“It is said that this is a mans world and sometimes it is. For every casket girl that was saved, countless others were not. But women are more resilient than given credit for.” This is what Rebekah recites as she is feeling more and more powerful. We find out that she has plans of her own. As she strengthens Tierry up, Marcel’s old best bud, she tells him that she wants to take down Klaus and Marcel. Then there’s Elijah and Marcel who talk about how will Davina forgive them after what has happened.

While Klaus is out on the town he runs into Cami, asking him if he’s shocked to see her, she tells him that she remembers all. Not one to be afraid anymore she makes sure to tell Klaus to not hurt Davina or Josh or she will expose him and everything he has. Back at the house Elijah tries to look for clues in Davina’s drawings. After Marcel tells him that some of the drawings are when Davina has sensed some powerful evil coming. When Elijah puts the pieces together we find out that it is none other than Celeste. The episode concludes with Hayley leaving the room where Elijah has the drawings and calling Sophie, who is digging up something, which ends up having Celeste’s face on it.

What are your thoughts on this episode? Come back next Wednesday for a recap of The Originals.

The Originals Mid-Season Finale Recap: “Reigning Pain in New Orleans”

Originals

While it might have been a couple weeks since The Originals mid season finale, I just barely had time to catch up and watch it on CWTV.com. Up until now this new hit show has been my #1 go to and it keeps me wanting more.

If you’ve been like me and haven’t been caught up on all the great stories, dramas and fights going on recap the previous episode, “The River in Reverse”  HERE!

To make it short and sweet Klaus had left his brother and sister and had taken over Marcel’s territory claiming it as his own. He’s feeling betrayed by Elijah and Rebekah and took Hayley with him so as to not have anyone take his unborn child.

Now that Klaus reigns over New Orleans he is ready to let the blood flow. As he hosts a dinner and gives a speech about the vamp community and that his next step as leader is to kill all the werewolves. We flashback to Marcel and Rebekah discussing loyalty and staying alive. Then Elijah and Rebekah decide to rescue Hayley but she says no, she is fine but her family and people are in danger. Klaus on the other hand is still using Cami as his right hand scribe and now Marcel knows all about it. Little does he know that Cami has been leaving notes all around her apartment to remember why she keeps forgetting things after Klaus compels her.

 

Klaus as the new commander has a meeting with the “humans” about the rules and regulations in the town, not one to follow the rules he tells them his personal terms and to better watch it with the rudeness. While the vamps are scavenging for werewolves Elijah and Rebekah decide to let them know that they should leave. As the vamps leave the campgrounds Elijah senses a wolf, Eve is her name and she tells them that the wolves know how to protect themselves and they can’t be found unless they want to be found. The only problem is that the newbie wolves don’t know the best hiding spots, that’s where Elijah and Rebekah’s help come in hand. As they go to another campground they let the vampires know that they are serious, do NOT harm the werewolves…or else.

Throwing It Back: THIS Is Why J.Lo Needs To Make An ‘AI’ Comeback

J.Lo Should Come Back To AI

Throwback Thursday to why Jennifer Lopez should have returned to American Idol…looks like she knew what was good for her since she’s returned for the new season with Harry Connick Jr. and returning judge Keith Urban. Check out the published article HERE at Celebuzz.

• BY LIZ CALVARIO •

Jennifer Lopez is making her return to American Idol, ladies and gents.
Rumors have been swirling that current AI judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj could be getting the axe, as producers are concocting a plan to get J.Lo back to the judges table.

But first things first. Lopez is set to make an appearance, but only as a performer… for now. The sexy songstress is set to strut her stuff on one of the two-part finale episodes May 15 and 16, according to E!.

While nothing is set in stone on a more permanent return to the hit FOX reality show, a source told E! that “there will definitely be changes to the judging panel for next season.”

Whether the rumors are true or not regarding Carey and Minaj getting the boot, we decided to remind you all of how J.Lo made her mark on reality TV.

Here are 5 reasons why we can’t get enough of this Jenny from the block.

1. Fashion Star

The girl earned some MAJOR style points during her two-season tenure. Those tuning in every week got more than just a reality show when Lopez’s curves (and those abs!) took center stage. You can’t argue — J.Lo makes 43 look good.

Throwing It Back: Glee’s Jane Lynch Dishes on “Mean and Petty” Guest Star Kate Hudson

20131205-202312.jpg

About 5 months ago at my time at E! Online I got the opportunity to co-write an article with the talented Brett Malec, writer at E! Online. The result is below! Read the published article HERE!

Aug. 6, 2012 by Brett Malec, Liz Calvario

Watch out, Rachel Berry!

It sounds like Lea Michele’s Glee alter ego is in for some major head-butting with the show’s newest guest star Kate Hudson.

Jane Lynch is spilling on Hudson ‘s highly-anticipated role as Michele’s meanie NYC dance instructor.

“I hear she’s doing just great and I read the scripts and they’re hilarious,” Lynch told us at Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne Barr in Hollywood . “She’s mean and petty and yet there’s a heart there too. She’s really good.”

Lynch added, “She gives Rachel a really hard time.”

Lynch, who hosted Barr’s big roast, said she’d love for the outspoken comedienne to make a guest spot on the show. “I would love it if she were on Glee,” Lynch laughed. “I want to [be] bosom buddies with her.”

So what does Barr think of the idea?

“Of course, I love Glee,” Barr said, adding with a laugh, “I’m ready to become a lesbian to get on there!”

Meanwhile, Lynch also dished on what’s in store of Sue Sylvester and her new baby in season four of Glee.

“Momentarily I’m nice,” she said. “I’ve just given birth to a beautiful baby girl who has Down syndrome and her name is Robin. Which to say hearkens thoughts of spring and new beginnings and her favorite Bee Gee.”

Lemon has to call up Grandma Breeland to take measures into her hands who unexpectedly advices Brick to marry Shelby.

#TBT: Saying Goodbye to Wizards of Waverly Place

Wizards Of Waverly

One of my last assignments from the first time I interned with Celebuzz was covering the finale and what the end of Disney Channel’s hit show Wizards of Waverly Place.

I got to attend the press junket and chat with the stars such as Selena Gomez and David Henrie about what the end would bring and what the next steps for the actors would bring.

Here’s an insert from the interviews I had with Gomez, Henrie and Jake T. Austin themselves:

In the finale, the Russo siblings Justin, Alex and Max, face a sudden challenge where they must go through an ultimate test to see which one of them gets to keep their wizardly powers. The anticipation has been rising and fans keep trying to figure out who will be the winner. We sat down with Selena, David Henrie and Jake T. Austin to get some info on their best memories.

What are you going to miss most about each other?

Selena: Honestly, the fighting with him. (David) I am, because it was the best, whenever I read scripts or read anything and its bickering, I’ve never done it as well as when I did it with David, on the show and in real life. It was good and it was fun!

David: Yeah it was fun. I don’t know, she’s a lot fun I had a good time with her.

Jake: I’m going to miss working with the crew, working with the cast every day. I’m going to miss playing my character Max because it was so much fun with the unpredictable antics that the writers wrote. We’re going to miss it, but it’s not like we are going to cut contact from each other! We still know each other, we’re still involved. It’s just not going to the same work place and be in that environment ever again. The only way that we will be able to relive that is by watching the episodes. It’s kind of sad, but at the same time you have to be appreciative of what we had.

What’s the best thing that you got out of this experience?

S: I learned a lot. Whenever people ask me that, even if it’s not in an interviews, I always say my cast and my crew just taught me so much! I thank David and Jake, especially David, for challenging me as an actress because he opened me up and made me better.

Did you take any mementos from the show?

S: The producers from the shows gave us our wands, it was really cool. It’s this cool glass case with a little engraving with each of our wands in it.

J: Yeah they gave us our wands, menus, we took everything! Anything to remember I guess.
