Nancy Drew Season 4 Episode 10 Assessment: The Ballad of Lives Foregone

Nancy Drew Season 4 Episode 10 Assessment: The Ballad of Lives Foregone


Nancy Drew has probably the most horrible luck in relation to love.

Her former boyfriend, Owen, was killed. Then Ace died throughout her hallucination after which fell underneath Temperance’s demise curse.

And now on Nancy Drew Season 4 Episode 10 Nancy shot Tristan with a crossbow and virtually killed him.

Oh, and we failed to say that Tristan is definitely a sin eater and, even with out the poison arrow, remains to be fated to die earlier than he is 30 years previous.

To assume that Nancy was drawn to the attractive lobsterman as a result of she thought he was uncomplicated. The Universe positively has a sick humorousness.

One of many solely low factors of this installment was that there was far an excessive amount of Tristan. Sure, the man has the loveliest eyes I’ve ever seen, however he isn’t Ace, and I am a diehard Nace shipper.

The extra time Tristan is round correlates on to the much less time Nancy and Ace have collectively. Therefore, I intensely dislike Tristan Glass.

However apart from the overabundance of lobster boy, this episode was a fast-paced experience from starting to finish, with a lot of the Drew Crew working collectively.

I say most as a result of, as soon as once more, Ace spent his time away from the remainder of the group. It is a pattern I am actually starting to dislike.

Not less than Bess was there for him. I appreciated Bess reminding Ace about how shut she bought to Odette and the way that ended. Ace must be cautious with the connection he is shaped with this lovely ghost.

And this ghost should have popped up for a purpose, however as of now, her connection to the remainder of the story is a thriller.

Nonetheless, we did get some fantastic scenes between Nancy’s two dads as a panicked Ryan ran to Carson for assist on this Nancy Drew quote

Carson: Whose blood is that?
Ryan: Tristan Glass’. The lobster child. The son of my mortal enemies. Sure, he’s the Sin Eater. Nancy shot him within the woods with a poison arrow, and now he would possibly die.
Carson: Dangle on. You introduced our daughter to the woods with a bow and arrow?
Ryan: I imply, technically, it was a small crossbow and a few arrows, however the entire plan to kill a sin eater was within the works lengthy earlier than I got here alongside.
Carson: Would you cease saying sin eater, prefer it’s one thing that everybody says! We’ve bought actual issues right here, like how the Glasses hate you, which suggests they hate our daughter by affiliation.

Carson’s plan to let the Glasses know what had occurred to their son was sound, however I nonetheless did not belief this couple even earlier than the twist on the finish.

Sure, you’ll be able to clarify loads of their habits away with their want to discover a method to save their son, however Bess was proper. They tried to kill her and Ryan, and there’s no excuse for that.

Others have blacklisted the Glasses within the relic commerce as a result of they cannot be trusted.

In that vein, I used to be involved for Ryan as he searched the Yacht Membership and that home with Shelby Glass. Once they realized that Tristan was going to outlive the poison, after which Ryan gave her the proper translation, I questioned if she’d take Ryan out proper there as a result of she had no additional use for him.

However her precise plan might have been worse as she already believed Nancy to be the final sinner on the fountain. Shelby was planning to kill Ryan’s daughter.

Admittedly, it is each heartbreaking and extremely disturbing to consider Tristan as a bit boy having to morph right into a sin eater. And understanding that their son solely has just a few quick years left to dwell has made his dad and mom determined, however that also would not excuse their willingness to kill anybody who will get of their means with out even in search of different choices.

However let’s go away the Glasses for a second and get again to Nancy.

Nancy and Nick made an important group as they labored collectively to save lots of Tristan. I’ve actually loved how their friendship has grown this season. If Ace is Bess’ platanchor, Nick might turn into Nancy’s.

Nick: Everyone seems to be difficult.
Nancy: However I simply form of hoped deep down that he was my ticket to a mature, drama-free relationship.
Nick: Yeah, however possibly there’s no such factor.

Regardless of what Nancy says, it looks like Nick is true. Maybe Nancy is much more drawn to Tristan now that there are obstacles of their means. Nancy is at her finest when she has one thing to combat for.

But when that is the case, why would not she put her effort and time into attempting to interrupt Temperance’s curse so she will be with Ace? I hold remembering Nancy’s phrases from Nancy Drew Season 4 Episode 5

The factor is, when you’ve one of the best kiss of your life, you do not simply quit on an individual. Proper?


It nonetheless would not make sense to me that Nancy would let Temperance win or that she’d quit on the love of her life and simply transfer on.

And I hate it much more, understanding we’ve got so few episodes left earlier than the collection ends.

And I’ve just a few extra questions I might like answered about “The Ballad of Lives Foregone.”

  • Why have been all of the sins stored in such fairly bottles?

  • How is Nashua related to Nancy? He claimed they’d walked this path earlier than, however they lived in several centuries. Might Temperance have one thing to do with this?

  • Was Nick proper? Is Nancy extra drawn to Tristan as a result of now she sees him as a thriller?

  • And what was up with all the candles surrounding Nancy and Tristan on the finish? There is a line between romantic lighting and a hearth hazard, and I believe they crossed it.

  • And can they let Ace out of the morgue so he may help save Nancy from the Glasses?
