Sleeping Beauty is not so innocent, after all.
Tell Me a Story has me spinning this week. Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella have changed the script, with Cinderella’s secret and a pretty big twist in Sleeping Beauty.
We’ve got hints at what happened to Olivia (Danielle Campbell) with her ex-boyfriend, but we didn’t know all the details until now. It turns out, Olivia isn’t as innocent as we thought she was. She killed her ex-boyfriend. Granted, he did choke her, but she could have called 911 after hitting him in the head instead of watching him die. And that smile! That evil smile! She enjoyed it. Is this the first time she’s done it? Has Tucker (Paul Wesley) met his match? That would be too brilliant if Tucker would pick the one girl that could actually kill him. Loving this story even more now. I hope Paul and Danielle had as much fun creating these scenes as we are enjoying them.
But poor Brendan. He was just going to get to the bottom of things to find out what was going on with Maddie’s (Odette Annable) fiance, and then he tried to save Olivia, and he got killed in the process. Once he saw what Tucker was doing, we knew it wouldn’t be long for him.
The Cinderella story is getting twisty. We knew Simone (Ashley Madekwe) had a past. Apparently, she owes bad people $300,000. She did her time in jail, but I guess once you get wrapped up with those people, it’s hard to get out.
So did she go back to get the money to get her out of her situation?
As I said before, I’m not convinced the stepmom is behind everything.
Ron (Caleb Castille), the evil step-brother, called the people Simone owes money to, and his mother is not happy about the mess he created.
The other step-brother, Derek (Christopher Meyer), helped prince Jackson (Matt Lauria) find Simone. There are so many parts to this story. I’m getting a little confused. Who killed her father? Who changed the will? And Simon’s godmother is dead now, too! We assumed it was all the stepmom.
And why did Ron call the people Simone owes money to? “Everything I do, I do for this family,” Ron says, so is he the mastermind behind everything? So much intrigue.
I think Jackson may have bitten off more than he can handle with Simone.
We kind of knew Derek was close to Simone, but it’s interesting to know that they were actually like siblings. He’s sweet, and it’s easy to see how he did not get along in his family.
The most straightforward fairytale, Beauty in the Beast, even had a little twist. The bomber was paid by someone but was killed before they could find out. Beau (Eka Darville) was about to be killed, so his former colleague was right to shoot him. And I’m glad she knew Beau wouldn’t leave it alone.
This is still such a beautiful love story. Ashley (Natalie Alyn Lind) went to the hospital to see Beau, but everyone took photos of her, so he sent her home, saying the bomber is still out there, and he couldn’t protect her from there.
Then Ashley was afraid that no one could handle her scars, the surgeries, and skin grafts. Beau is stopping at nothing to get to the bottom of Ashley’s case. I think he can handle some scars. He fell for her, not her beauty. This is still my favorite story because I love these two.
My only complaint still is, they aren’t using Odette Annable (Maddie) to her fullest. They are finally giving Danielle something meaty to work with. If only they would give Odette more to work with too.
It’s really heating up in every fairytale. It’s so much adrenaline. I have no idea what’s going to happen. My mind is totally spinning, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
