After completing the Nine Paths leading up to the premiere of The Nine Lives of Chloe King, I received an e-mail stating that there was one remaining items in the box that had not been part of the clues, but that its meaning would become clear during tonight’s premiere.

That item is Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. At first, I assumed Chloe would be reading this book in school, but that its themes would somehow relate to the story overall. Unfortunately, she’s not reading the story in school, but the themes do in fact relate to the premiere.

Spoilers follow if you haven’t yet watched the pilot.

A more in-depth recap will follow in the next day or two, but I did indeed notice the “forbidden love” theme between Chloe and Brian. They meet at the vintage clothing store where Chloe works every afternoon after school, where he bought a “kitty cat hat.” They have in common a missing parent: Chloe’s dad left her and her mother when she was very little and Brian’s mother died five years prior.

Oh, and Brian’s father is trying to kill Chloe.

That truth will be difficult enough for Chloe to learn, but I won’t be surprised if we discover that the Rezza family (I assume that’s Brian’s surname) will turn out to also be of the Mai. Alek said something along the lines of how humans and the Mai split was up to interpretation. It’s possible that the Mai themselves argued about their future with humans and wedged into two main groups with the Rezza family heading up the opposition.

This would actually be a boon to Chloe in the long run if her relationship with Brian goes anywhere. With him also being Mai, she could at least kiss the guy without killing him — unlike the Xavier’s sorry fate.

Overall, I definitely enjoyed The Nine Lives of Chloe King, plan to continue watching it, and if you haven’t seen it yet — fire up that Tivo. Chloe is the possible Buffy heir apparent. Jasmine kicked butt too.

Stay tuned…
