THE NINE LIVES OF CHLOE KING “Greenstar” Review

THE NINE LIVES OF CHLOE KING (ABC Family) Green Star Episode 3 (8)

THE NINE LIVES OF CHLOE KING “Greenstar” Season 1 Episode 3 – Well, Mai fans, I am pleased to say that unlike the previous two epsiodes of THE NINE LIVES OF CHLOE KING, I did not hate this one nearly as much!

We started the episode like normal, Chloe is broding over something, Alek and Brian are brought up, yadda, yadda, yadda. You’d think that by this time and with everything that she’s got going on Chloe would be thinking about how to deal with her new powers and abilities and less about boys. However, it seems that is not the case. At least early on in “Greenstar”.

This week, Chloe is summoned to meet the ruler of the Mai in San Francisco, and this mysterious woman just happens to be Alek’s mother. Chloe is nervous about the meeting, but soon realizes that there really isn’t anything to be worried about, all of the Mai are just there to keep Chloe safe.

Which is a good thing as the crazed assassin is still on her tail. And happens to steal her mother’s cell phone and hang out around Amy and Paul. Needless to say, this shakes Chloe up just a little bit, and despite warnings, she goes after the assassin to get rid of him once and for all.

Things don’t go according to plan, and she ends up almost killed, but it’s Mai people to the rescue! And Chloe is safe.

What I liked most about The Nine Lives of Chloe King this week was that by the end of the episode, Chloe really starts to grow into herself and come to terms with everything that’s happening to her. She tells Brian that they’ll be better off as friends, and realized that Alek has a thing for her, AND struggles to keep her mother safe and happy.

That’s a lot for a 16 year old to deal with, but I felt like it was protrayed really well this week, both through Skyler Samuels acting and the writing.

I’m still not a fan of Amy at ALL, in fact I think that if the assassin HAD gotten to her, it would have been a blessing in disquise. Paul can stay. Amy’s gotta go.

Regardless of that one flaw, I think that The Nine Lives of Chloe King is really starting to gain momentum and grow as a series. I’m actually looking forward to next week!
