I would like to say how happy I am this show appeared in my life. It’s my personal 2nd favorite new show this year, right behind American Horror Story. While watching the first episode I was already intrigued, maybe even from the very beginning, when the quote of Confucius was given ‘Before embarking the journey of revenge, dig two graves.’ By the end I realized that I will definitely be following this soon to be amazing show. My favorite character is, just like in American Horror Story, Constance, here the one and only queen Victoria. Victoria Grayson is a smart and intelligent character fool of rage and dignity and class. Imagine my surprise, when I saw the cliffhanger of season 1 finale, I must confess, I have played this scene fifty times from the premiere, and it has only been 5 days. From where I see it, Victoria is the lead character, not Emily. Emily may be my second favorite character, and the character I have always despised was Daniel. I just never liked him, and from the way he has been acting recently, I was right about him. So I am shipping Jack and Emily. Then I like Conrad, then Jack, and Nolan. It is hard for me to trust and like Ashley and Charlotte, but I am not here to judge them. The show has provided me with many excellent quotes about life and death. As I always have to categorize everything I have made a list of episodes in the order of how much I liked them, here we go.

Clearly there were better and worse scenes, some not good enough, but the whole story, the whole idea is compelling. It may not be a show that I will obsess about when It’s gone, though not addicting, I can call it my guilty pleasure, as I am always open to see what is new with the Graysons. The twists are always surprising and It definitely deserves a 8.5/10.
