The White Queen - Episode 3: Wake Me When It's Over

SPOILER ALERT:  I have seen 3 episodes of The White Queen.

Meh.  Tonight's ep was called Fool Me Once.  Yeah.  They fooled me into thinking it was going to be good!

Don't get me wrong, it didn't suck.  But it wasn't fantastic, by any means.   Ever notice how sometimes shows like this seem to be on a week on/week off schedule?  Amazing...meh...Amazing...meh.  Story...filler...story...filler.  Tonight was a whole lotta filler.  (The Tudors was famous for that.)  Two scenes were literally exactly alike.  Edward's gone...Edward comes back.  Elizabeth is sitting at a table when he does.  He walks in - they embrace.  Yawn.  Really?

A few good things:

Edward and Elizabeth getting it on with Warrick's daughter in the room, waiting on them.  Holy hell - it was like in Rome (on HBO) when Atia and Mark Antony were going at it like banshees and afterward, Atia orders "Water!" to her servant, who is standing right next to them.  Ummm...OK.

Margaret and Jasper finally swapping some spit.  GOD that husband of hers is annoying.  Although, WHAT is she up to by sleeping with him?  That was bizarre.  I guess she has to please him in the bedroom to get what she wants.  Then again, who doesn't?  ;)

Lady Cecily.  Lordddd she's underused.  I love her icy attitude.  I'd like to see her go quip for quip with the Dowager Countess on Downton Abbey.  THAT would rule.

Poor Isabel.  I felt SO bad for her when she lost the baby.  And we all knew she was going to.  What a nightmare on that boat.  She seems so conflicted all the time...like she really wants to do the right thing.  I keep waiting for her to turn on everyone and run to the queen and tell on...someone.  Anyone.  LOL

That's it for now.  I just don't have it in me to say much more about this episode.  Cross your fingers for next week.  They never give you two filler eps in a row...so we should be good!
