The students wake up to vague memories and feelings of regret after a night of drinking. However, there's no time for talking about what did or didn't occur now that their lives depend on getting to the Netherlands as soon as possible. -syfy.com/themagicians

Just wanted to let people know that Dani, Naomi, and Lauren are all going to live tweet tonight @houseatmurs and Dani's personal twitter (which I don't have at the moment) probably using #FTBWatch (not 100% on the hashtag) during the Eastern, Central, and Pacific showings.
Okay so like, the fallout from the threesome was very realistic. I just. Hate cheating storylines (yeah, I know I was one of the people yelling about how great the threesome was, I kind of divorced my feelings about the cheating thing away from that because who wouldn't be glad to get canon images of their OTP making out). So all of this just squicked me out a bit. Though I loved Q's like supporting... Palice? Anny? What their ship name? Idk but I do ship them, I love how tender show!Penny was. But this is me, multi shipper extraordinaire, who ships literally the entire cast as one big OTP (poly!ships FTW). So anyway all of that squick meant I didn't super care for the physical kid's plot line as much as I usually would. Julia's plot line on the other hand? Hit me very very hard. I've been in a weird point in my life religion wise and her journey with all of this is helping me a lot. (And tbh my inclinations for pop culture paganism is making me want to make an altar for Our Lady Underground very very much. I've already made a blog dedicated to her lol). I loved margo's angry line about planning her outfit around the emotion bottle, I loved everything to do with the library (did you guys see the BTS stuff of that yet? Alice's actress who's name I can't remember right now tweeted a video that was a bunch of the library signs. And Arjun, of course, tweeted some pics too) (also, Penny/Librarian OTP, I am weak and they were cute). What else... I'm sad Rebecca from HTGAWM got hurt/killed, she was cool. And evil, but still. Very Very concerned that (spoiler for book 2 following)
Reynard was the one who actually showed up and Julia's memories were changed/the whole 'second julia' thing happened, because in the books it isn't OLU that showed up and that like calm at Julia's place was so creepy to me. Like something feels off about all that. Plus she's the only one left? Which, makes a bit of sense because she needs to go to Fillory but like... Idk I'm getting the creeps from it. Also I thought they were having her sleep with Richard, which was kind of creepy weird also tbh, as like one more nice experience before Reynard, you know, brutally violated her, which was the only reason I was ok with her sleeping with him, which sounds kind of awful I guess. But. Idk.
So like, the changes from the books are nice because I don't know exactly what's going to happen but also it makes me anxious as hell when they change something major because it's like WHATS GONNA HAPPEN I DONT EVEN KNOW ANYMORE. I never really cared much for book!Josh and I still don't really care much for him in the show either, but I appreciate his humor and general lightheartedness in light of all the horrible angst we've been getting from the PK's storyline as well as what is going to happen soon (if they don't CHANGE IT! BECAUSE WHO EVEN KNOWS ANYMORE!) My last thought is: THEYRE IN FILLORY! F-I-L-L-O-R-Y!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't know how to do spoilers on mobile so I'll just be vague - I'm HOPING that this means The Bad Thing will not be happening to Julia, although now her storyline is different because she's more happy/not so broken down as in the books, which unfortunately I think she needs to be? :/ very nervous for her, the show has really made me love Julia and get storyline.
Show Josh isn't really what I pictured, but I'm trying to have faith that I'll grow to like him better. We'll see.
The threesome fallout was good, loved more flashbacks obviously, and Margo saying no one gets to be mad at her for fucking them was perfect.
Penny's attitude was awesome, another character that I'm loving way more on the show.
I just have so many good feelings about this episode!!!!
AAAHHHHH I'm also worried/a tiny bit skeptical about the OLU summoning, too clean for it to be finished. And PUMPED on josh. I think it was a nice way to tie up the class of 2016 mystery and add to the journey in the Neitherlands. His light humor I think is spot on with the books. I kind of wanted to cry when Julia and Quentin reunite and start talking about Fillory? Doubt I'm alone on that one.
Question- can we NOT have a season finale, and just make this a multi-years long extravaganza? Many thanks.
Erik Johnson: It's ASCII Code. In the books, the Free Traders - especially the House At Murs people - would give each other messages and puzzles and stuff using this style of coding. What I wrote says: "Happy New Year Free Traders!" Sorry to confuse anyone.

Ibiza Asylum: And there's the end to another great season. Thanks to anyone who may have tweeted with me or live tweeted the show in general. Always fun hearing what you all have to say.
