Last night’s episode was definitely a roller coaster ride. I must admit, it was better than I thought it would be. I wasn’t looking forward to the finale, because I didn’t really care for the previous episode, but ‘Beautiful Day’ definitely reminded me of how much I love this show!
From the very beginning, you get a cute type of vibe. Especially for all of you “Team Alek” fans. Sadly, the cuteness didn’t last very long. Zane, Jasmine’s boyfriend, is plotting big time. He’s trying to kill the pack, and he might actually succeed. Three minutes in, and I’m already nervous.
To my dismay, the Alek (Benjamin Stone) and Chloe (Skyler Samuels) moment didn’t last very long. Why? Well, because Chloe decided it would be a great idea to go on a road trip with Brian (Grey Damon) to visit his Grandmother. From the very beginning I thought this would be a bad idea. No matter how much you love this show, you have to admit that it’s kind of predicable. Chloe, being the sweet person she is, tries to help someone and ends up getting herself, and others around her, in danger. Sad, but very true.
While Chloe was out with Brian, everyone else was having a heart attack. Okay, why did she have to lie about being with Brian? Chloe, will you ever learn? Well, not even five minutes at the Grandmother’s estate, and Chloe breaks in. See, I told you. Danger. Lucky for her, Brian’s grandmother is a sweet, innocent old lady who wouldn’t harm a fly. *Cough* Not. *Cough*
As Brian and his long, lost Grandma were chatting it up, Chloe gets a surprising email.
“IN SAN FRANCISCO. MEET ME TONIGHT. DAD”
This text definitely surprised the audience, as well as Chloe. Yet somehow, she manages to keep her cool, and have an intriguing conversation with Brian’s Grandmother. She reveals that she wouldn’t be surprised if Brian’s father played a part in his mother’s death. Right as Chloe and Brian left, it was revealed that Brian’s grandmother is in on the whole “Mai” situation. And the plot thickens.
Just as we thought things couldn’t get worse, Zane shows his face. This is really bad, if there was ever a time to NOT be nice to Jasmine’s boyfriend, it would be now, Valentina (Alicia Coppola)!
Alright, now I hate to write this, but as Chloe was discussing her messed up love life to her mom, Meredith (Amy Pietz), she dropped a huge bomb. Chloe finally admits that she is in love with Brian. Okay, this wasn’t really a shocker, but poor Alek. Seeing as he’s the best boyfriend EVER, he was making sure she was okay, and heard everything. Now, this is when I get mad. I hate how Chloe drags along these two boys. It isn’t fair, and it’s really shallow. Trust me, I wouldn’t be saying this unless it was true. Chloe seems like the LEAST shallow person ever, always helping people, but the fact that she does this? Not cool, Chloe.
Just as Alek leaves, clearly heart broken, Chloe receives a text from her dad, telling her where to meet him. Just as she was leaving the house, Brian happened to stop by. He offered to drive her, and the second she gets into that car, I knew this could not be good.
Frankly, three surprising/awesome/heartbreaking scenes happen.
1. Valentina gets attacked by Zane. He poison’s her, and reveals that he’s going to kill Jasmine as well.
2. Mama King is on a date with Brian’s dad. Um, this won’t end well.
3. Chloe is attacked. It is revealed that she was tricked, her father never sent her any emails. I must admit, I was pretty disappointed, but I saw this coming. She is attacked by four men, but manages to fight them off. Just as we think she’s in the clear, Simone (Jolene Andersen) shoots her to death. Two lives down, seven lives to go.
4. Jasmine walks in, and realizes that her mother is borderline dead. This resulting in an awesome fight between her and Zane. To make an extremely disappointing story short, Zane stabs Jasmine and she ‘seems’ to be dead.
Wow, a lot can happen in a few minutes!
Just as we thought enough had happened, they leave us with two very interesting cliff-hangers. Right when Chloe dies, Brian runs in. He isn’t aware of the whole “nine lives” situation, so he is heartbroken. As Chloe lays lifeless in his arms, he whispers “I love you” over and over. Okay, I’m Team Alek, but this got me. Just as she comes back to life, they kiss each other. So sweet. A human and a Mai kissing… Wait a minute.
To conclude the season finale they dropped a huge surprise on us. Zane and Alek are brothers. Whaaaa? Okay, I felt this finale was a tad bit predicable, but I did NOT see that coming! Also, I didn’t expect for Brian to die. Ever. Yet, Amy and Paul walked in on Brian laying lifeless in Chloe’s arms. Jasmine, Valentina, and Brian dead? Writers, please fix this.
Overall it was an enjoyable season finale, it kept my interest the whole time. I felt it was slightly predicable, but it did surprise me sometimes. I’m hoping Nine Lives gets renewed, because I must know what happens to Brian! Congrats Nine Lives, on an awesome first season.
