Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Passage” season 1 episodes 9 and 10: “You Taught Me Everything”

Happy Tuesday TV fans!  After watching Fox’s The Passage two-part season 1 finale, we learned that “one world died and another was born.”  But in this new world, everyone has to live with their choices and consequences.  Will they rise up and continue to fight or will they give in to the darkness?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episodes, “Stay in the Light” and “Last Lesson,” we learn what happens next when the virals wake up, as the twelve are now complete.  Meanwhile, Amy is faced with some impossible decisions, sacrifices are made, and a new future is upon us.  My top 5 moments from The Passage season 1 episodes 9 and 10 are:

5

“It has to be me.”

During the episode, Dr. Sykes is still trapped and Clark and the others try to get her out and retrieve the antiviral, especially after Lila is infected.  While Dr. Sykes is trying to stay calm, Shauna breaks in and these two come face to face with one another.  Only Shauna doesn’t initially attack Dr. Sykes and taps into her mind to ask her why she had been nice to her.  Dr. Sykes tells Shauna that “in another world we could have been friends.”  But is Shauna stalling or is there something more here?  Before we can find out anything further, Brad shoots Shauna, causing her to flee and tries to help Dr. Sykes.  Amy is faced with an impossible decision, as she decides to push the button that will destroy that section of Project Noah with Brad and Dr. Sykes still inside.  Amy is prepared to make this sacrifice, proving to really be the bravest person in the world.  They have less than two minutes to get out, but the virals show up to make things interesting.  Dr. Sykes knows what she must do and tells Brad to get the antiviral to Lila and the CDC, sacrificing herself to save as many lives as she can.  Dr. Sykes has always put the needs of the many above her own and she stays true to her integrity in this heartbreaking moment.

4

“I have work to do.”

After the virals escape, Dr. Lear blames himself and contemplates taking his own life.  However, Lacey shows up and changes his mind, reminding him that he still has work to do.  Dr. Lear may have been the “author of this horror show,” but with Dr. Sykes gone, he could be the only one to stop it and potentially save the world.  It’s a long shot, but Dr. Lear refuses to give up even when Fanning continues to appear to him in his mind.  Even though the future looks bleak, it’s good to see Dr. Lear trying to make a difference and fix things with Lacey’s support.

3

“Maybe I could be that girl in the diner again.”

After the explosion, we learn that the virals are still alive, as they are finally free in the world.  Clark and the others try to stop as many as possible, but Clark is severely injured and about to die.  Shauna approaches him and he says, “I was wondering when you were going to show up.”  Rather than rip him to shreds, Shauna taps into his mind and the two of them are lying on the hood of a car together, away from all of the chaos and noise.  Shauna explains, “I thought this might be a nicer place to die.”  Clark seems ready to accept his fate, but Shauna offers him a choice.  Clark accepts and Shauna saves his life, but there is a price.

The two of them are now blood linked and 30 days later, Clark is bringing Shauna live bodies to consume.  However, Shauna wants out of their deal, as Clark has been keeping Vegas as safe as possible, but she feels like he is starving her.  All of the virals returned home when they escaped and their homes quickly became “hot spots.”  Clark feels trapped in his circumstances, but he still shares a strong connection with Shauna, as he gives in and kisses her passionately, suggesting that this link is nowhere near severed.  It’s interesting to see that Shauna took a different approach, as Carter was unable to tame the beast within him.  What made Shauna different and what will she do next?  We’ll have to wait and see, but this dark seduction between her and Clark seems like it will continue.

2

“For me, this was the best time…we were a family.”

During the 30 days later portion, we learn that Amy is with Brad and Lila at a cabin.  It seems like everything here is serene and untouched, as we witness Amy and Brad fishing together.  Amy finally has a family, but everything is temporary.  For those of us shipping Brad and Lila, they finally get the opportunity to reconcile and be together, but Lila recognizes that she has a duty to the world.  Lila decides to leave and try and help others with Lacey, leaving Amy alone with Brad.

Brad teaches Amy how to use a bow and arrow and how to take care of herself.  Brad recognizes that the threat is nowhere near over and he wants her to be prepared.  In a heartwarming moment, we see Brad braiding Amy’s hair.  Amy asks him how she looks and he says, “Like a bad-ass.”  Brad reminds Amy that she is not like Fanning.  He tells her that she has a good heart and that she is the bravest person he has ever met, which is truly touching.  I wish I could freeze this moment in time for them, as Amy and Brad have a bond that is so real and beautiful.  Only, we know that things are about to change and they change so quickly.

1

“Sometimes the right thing is the hardest thing in the world to do.”

Fanning continues to try and tap into Amy’s mind to manipulate her when she is at the cabin.  After a neighbor is infected, Brad gets bitten and Amy is left with another impossible choice.  Seriously, this poor girl has so much to deal with.  The new friends they met tell Amy that they need to shoot Brad before he turns, but Amy refuses to let this happen.  Amy unleashes the monster buried deep within her and kills them.  She gives Brad the cure and leaves, which is beyond heartbreaking.  Amy says, “I don’t regret what I did.  I only regret running away.”  She recognizes that Brad taught her everything.  She found a family because of him and she learned how to be ready.  At the end of the season finale, we flash forward to 97 years later in the Palm Desert.  Amy still has her bow and arrow and takes out a viral, explaining that the world has been taken over by them.  However, humanity still exists in some places and Amy holds on to the hope that Brad is somehow still alive, which keeps her going and reminds her “not to panic.”

Overall, there was so much jam-packed into this two-part season finale, that I almost don’t know where to start.  We know that Amy initially saw the future and saved Fanning from dying, but why did she do this?  There are so many unanswered questions, but I appreciate how much the show tried to stay true to the book while also creating some unique differences and I really hope that the series gets picked up for another season because I am not ready to say goodbye to Amy just yet.  The performances were all incredible and I just wish we had more episodes right now.  This show genuinely surprised me and it has the potential to continue to carve its way into one of my favorite series of all time.  Let’s just hope we get to see what happens next!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” season 9 episode 13: “I’ll Kill Him First”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season 9 episode 13, I realized that negotiations during the zombie apocalypse are not always that difficult.  If at first you don’t succeed with offers of trade and safe passage, why not try again with a movie?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. In last night’s episode, “Chokepoint,” Ezekiel and Carol receive a letter from the group with the mysterious symbol.  Meanwhile, Daryl and Connie continue to make an amazing tag team, as Beta shows off just how dangerous he can be.  My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 9 episode 13 are:

5

“There’s no way in hell I’m letting you run away with this one.”

After Daryl gets Henry and Lydia to temporary safety, Daryl tells Lydia to go back to the Whisperers, but Henry wants to keep running and thinks that he can fix everything.  Daryl is worried about Hilltop, recognizing that Alpha will go after them first.  Henry continues to think with his heart before his head and Daryl reminds him to think about his mother.  I’m still excited to see Carol’s reaction to all of this, as I don’t think Lydia will get embraced by her with open arms.

4

“If they don’t listen, then kill them.”

Jerry and some of the others are robbed by the new group with the symbol and they give him a letter.  Ezekiel and Carol read the letter, as we are introduced to the Highwaymen.  Carol points out that they could have killed Jerry, but they sent a letter instead and it was grammatically correct, which suggests that these people are civilized.  Never underestimate the power of good grammar!  Ezekiel still wants to gather the troops just in case, but Carol continues to show off her impressive leadership skills, as she thinks that they should try talking to them first.  Either way, I was excited that the group behind the symbol has already been revealed, as TWD can sometimes drag out story-lines.

3

“Because I care about you.”

Henry continues to be Henry in this episode, as Lydia tells him that coming after her was a stupid thing to do.  Go Lydia!  Lydia demands to know why Henry came after her and he tells her that he cares about her.  Just as we are about to get another nauseating kiss between these two, Daryl interrupts and cock blocks Henry, which had me laughing uncontrollably.  Sorry Henry, maybe next time.

2

“And Jerry would like his sword back.”

So, as we got to meet the Highwaymen, I almost felt like the channel changed to an old Western movie, complete with the music soundtrack and everything.  The Highwaymen initially laugh at Ezekiel’s proposal to give them access to the Kingdom and the fair, but Carol sweetens the deal.  Carol offers the Highwaymen the chance to see movies and they jump at the opportunity.  But, let’s not forget that Jerry would like his sword back as well, which gave us some welcomed comic relief during the episode.  The Highwaymen show up to help Tara and the others and accept this new job opportunity to keep the roads safe, but what else do we know about them?  Are they friends or foes?  We’ll have to wait and see, but so far I am liking this new group.

1

“I’ll kill him first.”

Daryl is sick of running, as Connie suggests that they get to higher ground and enter an abandoned building that she has used previously.  There are some supplies and several areas have already been blocked off, which could give Daryl and the others an advantage.  Lydia tells Daryl that Alpha will send Beta to take them out, but Daryl is not intimidated.  Daryl and Connie continue to make a great tag team, as they eliminate the threats that come after them and I have to give a special honorable mention to Dog, who was not afraid to jump in the fight either.  The fight between Daryl and Beta had me on the edge of my seat and it ended with Daryl pushing Beta down an elevator shaft.  However, things are not always that simple, as we learn that Beta is still alive at the end of the episode.  Something tells me that this guy is not that easy to kill, so Daryl Dixon better watch his back.  Stay tuned!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own theories and thoughts on The Walking Dead below in the comments section.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “SMILF” season 2 episode 7: “You’re My Girl”

Greetings TV viewers!  After watching Showtime’s SMILF season 2  episode 7, I realized that true friendship is when you no longer consider that person your friend and instead, they become family.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Smile More If Lying Fails,” Bridgette and Larry get their hair done and are invited to Eliza’s party.  Meanwhile, Rafi and Nelson share their happy news and Bridgette shows up for her date two weeks late.  My top 5 moments from the SMILF season 2 episode 7 are:

5

“Do you like your hair?  No.”

In the beginning of the episode, the waitress leaves Bridgette a note saying that she does hair, in case she wants to take Larry.  Bridgette asks Larry if he likes his hair and he hilariously says, “No.”  Straight and to the point, Larry!  Larry is scared when he is getting his hair done so Bridgette decides to get her hair done too.  However, I’m not sure that identical cornrows was the right decision.

4

“Larry we gotta go get some weed.”

Eliza is stressing out at her party and calls Bridgette up in a panic to come over and get her some weed.  Bridgette hilariously announces this to Larry, as they head over to Tutu’s together.  It’s always fun seeing what Tutu and her sister are up to, but Bridgette tries to stick to the mission as much as possible with Larry by her side.

3

“A magical Puerto Rican wedding…I can’t wait.”

Rafi and Nelson announce that they are getting married and Bridgette seems genuinely happy for them.  However, she quickly discovers that Larry is invited to the wedding, but she is not, which makes Bridgette feel some type of way.  I felt really bad for Bridgette in this moment, as she realizes that her relationship with Rafi has certainly changed, now learning that he changed her name in his phone to just “Bridgette Bird.”  Is there any hope for these two?  I’m still hoping so!

2

“I’m here for our date…you’re two weeks late.”

Bridgette is still feeling upset about Rafi’s announcement and decides to call up the tattoo artist she stood up.  He seems eager to see her and immediately skips dinner to initiate sex, but Bridgette is less than enthused about his over-aggressive approach.  Bridgette hilariously begins texting Eliza during the act, saying that the sex is so bad, only she sends it to her date by mistake.  Bridgette leaves after an awkward goodbye, realizing that perhaps this was not what she needed after all.

1

“You’re my girl.”

At the end of the episode, Bridgette meets up with Eliza and confides in her about her date and about Rafi’s announcement.  Eliza proves to be Bridgette’s real friend, as she has her back and tells her that she is her cousin.  I love the friendship between these two, which is far from perfect, but they both support each other, which is important.  I was so disappointed to hear that SMILF has been canceled, but I’m looking forward to the remaining episodes of the series.  Let’s just hope it doesn’t end on a major cliffhanger!  Stay tuned for more SMILF fun!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and comments on SMILF below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 9 episode 14: “Don’t Ever Look Back”

Happy Sunday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 9 episode 14 season finale, I realized that we sometimes get a second chance, even after we have hit rock bottom.  So what do we do with it?  Do we play it safe or do we travel into the unknown?  The decision is never easy, but all we can do is try and embrace the future.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Found,” Fiona makes a huge decision that will impact everyone around her.  Meanwhile, Liam moves out, Carl and Debbie team up, and Frank burdens everyone with his recovery.  My top 5 moments from Shameless season 9 episode 14 season finale are:

5

“I moved out.”

During the episode, Liam decides to move out of the Gallagher house for good.  Debbie tries to get him to come back home, but Liam explains that he doesn’t want to be a Gallagher anymore and even Carl asks, “Is that an option?”  Debbie refuses to give up and Liam presents her with a list of demands of 46 items that will need to be addressed in order for him to consider moving home, as Liam is looking to embrace his culture in a stable environment.  Good for you, Liam!

4

“I’m a man again!”

Kev is thrilled to be “a man again” and even starts thinking about renting himself out as Jesus.  V is skeptical, but Kev has endless possibilities, including “A Jesus Stripper” and “Last Supper Jesus.”  It looks like Kev has embraced this new role, but someone should probably tell him that “Bar Mitzvah Jesus” may not go over that well…

3

“Now that’s a woman!”

In the beginning of the episode, Carl and Debbie team up to get some revenge on Kelly for breaking their hearts, as they go into full stealth mode to mess up her truck.  Kelly is furious and confronts Debbie, as we hilariously see that Carl spray painted “heart beaker” instead of “heart breaker.”  Debbie informs Kelly that she knows how to spell, but takes this moment to stand up for her brother, as she tells Kelly that she really hurt her brother and that he feels rejected.  Carl is ready to give up on school and settle for working in fast food, but we know he is worth so much more than that.  Kelly refuses to accept this and storms into “Captain Bob’s” and zip ties Carl and takes him out of there, telling his boss that he quits.  Kelly really is one hell of a woman, as she tells Carl to man up and kisses him, suggesting that there is hope for these two to get back together.  Yay!

2

“You just love them.”

Tami decides to move forward with her pregnancy after getting her test results back from the doctor.  Lip wants to be a father, but Tami thinks that he will be a terrible one.  In a touching moment, Lip gets some advice from Kev, who tells him that you just love them, which is actually really great advice.  I personally think that Lip will be an excellent father, especially after seeing how good he was with Xan, but it will definitely be an adventure for sure.

1

“I’m scared.”

After receiving the $100,000 check from Max, Fiona realizes that she now has a second chance.  Fiona goes to visit Ian in prison and he tells her to go because she deserves it.  Fiona is scared, but Ian reminds her, “Don’t ever look back.”  Ian will always be there to love and support her, along with the rest of her family, but Fiona recognizes that it is time to start her life somewhere else.  Lip wants to throw Fiona a goodbye party, but she leaves before it, realizing that she may not be able to go if she stays for that.  Fiona recognizes that it is now or never and takes that leap of faith to get on the plane and move forward toward the unknown.  She loves her family and even leaves Deb a check for $50,000 and reminds Frank that she did it all, as he tries to thank her for helping over the years.  It’s clearly difficult for Frank to admit this and he probably has his own feelings about his oldest daughter leaving, but Fiona takes the high road and doesn’t look back.  We’re proud of you, Fiona Gallagher!

I have to say that I definitely shed a few tears at the end of the episode.  I will absolutely miss Emmy Rossum on the show and I’m not sure that it will be the same without her, but we definitely still have a lot of Gallagher fun to keep us entertained.  Fiona was always the heart and soul of the show for me and I feel like I just said goodbye to my best friend when she got on the plane.  You’ll never be replaced, Fiona, and I hope that you get your chance at a happily ever after!  Stay tuned!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts on Shameless below in the comments section.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

My performance of the week ending 3/9/19 on TV goes to…

Saniyya Sidney as Amy Bellafonte on The Passage.  This is no easy role to play and Saniyya has a lot to live up to, as Amy Bellafonte is one of my favorite characters ever! I am a big fan of Justin Cronin’s work and I was worried that I might not connect with Amy as much on the television series.  However, Saniyya completely changed my mind and then some.  Her performance every single week is so real and believable.  She has me crying my eyes out, as she carries the weight of the world on her shoulders.  Amy has to go through so much and she still stays brave, loyal, and funny through it all.  Her bond with Agent Brad Wolgast is beautiful and heartwarming, as she recognizes him as her true family.

What’s next for Amy?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but it looks like her abilities have just transcended to another level and it’s perfect timing since the subjects have gotten out of their cages.  Amy’s eyes changed colors, but she made the decision to turn away from Fanning’s offer, which proves just how strong and fearless she is.  Watch out Fanning, Amy’s coming to get you and I can’t wait to see what she does next!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Best,

Amy Koto, TV Fanatic Girl

Have a performance on TV that you think is simply outstanding? Feel free to contact me with your nomination for the week by Friday at midnight!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 14: “Everything Means Something”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 14, I learned that volatile magic is not to be taken lightly.  Even if the big bad is gone, there is always a consequence and it might be one the Winchester brothers never see coming.  Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Ouroboros,” Sam and Dean continue to try and track down a new threat with the assistance of Jack and Castiel.  Rowena joins Team Winchester as well, but gets an uninvited guest who tries to break up the party.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 14 are:

5

“I’m on a first name basis with some psycho pen pal…”

During the episode, a new threat begins to leave corpses behind after he feasts on their organs.  Gross.  He uses venom to numb his victims before he starts his work and Sam and Dean have been trying to catch him for a little while now.  We soon learn that the threat, Noah, has some kind of connection or interest in Dean, as he leaves behind a note for him with the victim’s body in the truck.  Noah says he can see Dean, Sam, and Rowena, but he cannot detect Castiel or Jack for some reason, which means he cannot see angels.  This gives Team Winchester the advantage, as they try to put a stop to him once and for all.

4

“I thought my performance was quite magnificent.”

It always is, Rowena, and it’s always wonderful to see our favorite witch on the show.  Rowena tries to help the Winchester brothers defeat Noah and points out that there are other ways of doing things besides posing as the FBI, which is an excellent point.  Rowena and Sam show up at the vet with their adorable dog, Jack, in order to get the anti-venom they need.  This moment is a lot of fun for sure, but Rowena recognizes that something is not right with Jack and asks Sam what he did to him, feeling the volatile magic within.  There are always consequences to everything and even Jack begins showing signs that he may be over abusing his powers.

3

“The hurt will remind you how much you loved them.”

In a touching moment, Castiel sits down with Jack to talk about everything and tries to explain that Sam and Dean are human and that they will eventually be gone and that they will need to carry on.  He says that losing people is part of growing up, but Jack asks, “What’s the point?”  Jack is still very naive and young in so many ways, but he has a big heart and he just wants to help the people he loves.  Castiel really does a great job with the whole father-son speech, as he tells Jack that the point is that they were here and he got to know them.  It may be awful, but it’s also part of living and this moment proves just how far Castiel has come from the beginning of the series.  Castiel has shown so many signs of humanity, but we know that The Empty is still lingering around, waiting to take Castiel away once and for all.  After all, happily ever after does not last very long on Supernatural.

2

“And you do care about them…so say yes.”

After Noah is defeated, Dean will not wake up and everyone begins to panic.  Dean eventually wakes up screaming, as we find out that Michael is gone from his mind.  Maggie and the others in the bunker are killed and Michael possesses Rowena.  Castiel says that Rowena would have never said yes, but Michael plays on her own growing humanity, as he tells her that he will kill everyone she cares about if she doesn’t say yes.  The choice is up to her, but Rowena ultimately does this to try and protect her friends, which proves that Rowena may not be a villain anymore after all.  However, there is that pesky prophecy about Sam killing her in the end.

1

“I am a Winchester…you won’t hurt anyone ever again.”

Jack refuses to stand by and do nothing, as he uses his powers to kill Michael and free Rowena.  Jack’s wings return and he says, “I’m me again,” but at what cost?  Volatile magic is not something to be taken lightly and Jack may have just released an even bigger threat than Michael.  Does this mean that Jack’s soul is gone?  What other consequences will emerge?  There are still so many unanswered questions, but I have to say that I am really happy that Michael is gone once and for all.  I felt like this story-line was over a long time ago and was being dragged out, so it’s nice to see this threat eliminated, but this is also not the end that Billie predicted.  Has Jack changed the course of fate?  Stay tuned! 

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Supernatural in the comments section below.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” season 3 episode 14: “Fire Walk With Me”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Riverdale season 3 episode 14, we were reminded that “running isn’t going to solve anything.”  However, what happens when “the hunters become the hunted?”  Do you accept your fate or do you set a new path?  A path of danger and destruction that might lead you back to the darkness you have tried so hard to keep at bay.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Chapter Forty-Nine:  Fire Walk With Me,” Archie tries to help a boy named Ricky who has the same branding as him.  Meanwhile, Jughead sets up a new chapter for the Serpents, Toni and Cheryl continue to drift apart, and Betty has had enough.  My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 3 episode 14 are:

5

“One more strike and you’re done in my school.”

Both Toni and Jughead are lectured by Principal Weatherbee after some equipment is stolen from the chemistry lab.  I guess someone has been watching reruns of Breaking Bad, as we later learn that Kurtz is responsible.  Kurtz is bad news and Jughead tries to get through to him, but Kurtz says, “I play by a different set of rules.”  Jughead refuses to give up; however, as he enlists the help of his father, FP.  FP proposes that the Serpents work for him and help solve cases and that they will receive money and credit for college as well, which seems like a pretty good deal to me.  Will this keep the Serpents out of trouble for good?  We’ll have to see, but it looks like a new chapter is starting for them.  Way to go, Jughead!

“You are a detractor.”

During the episode, Betty continues to be snubbed by Kevin, who has embraced the Farm with open arms.  Betty tries to reason with Kevin, but he tells her that she is a detractor and doesn’t want to hear it.  After Betty witnesses Kevin walking on a fire pit to prove himself to the Farm, she is threatened by Evelyn, who reminds her that “everyone at the Farm knows all of your dirty secrets.”  Betty is forced to keep her mouth shut as a result, but we know that our modern day Nancy Drew will not stay quiet for long, as she debates her next move.  Look out Evelyn Evernever, Betty is not someone you want to mess with!

“I’m running my business my way.”

Veronica realizes that all of her money is going to her father and Gladys and decides that she will open up the secret casino again to add in some extra cash flow.  Veronica has really thought of everything, as she even comes up with clever hiding spots for the evidence in case they are raided.  Veronica tells her father that she will pay him, but she is going to run her business her way, as she enlists the help of Toni and the Pretty Poisons to keep everything secure and to keep Gladys out.  However, something tells me that Gladys doesn’t like taking no for an answer, so we’ll have to see how this unfolds.  Also, I’m glad that Toni is taking her leadership role seriously, but it seems like our favorite couple, Choni, is falling apart.  Can they fix things before it is too late?  Let’s hope so!

“You’re playing me?”

Archie meets a young boy named Ricky, who has been hiding out at the gym.  Archie realizes that Ricky has the same brand on him, which means sacrifice and he is determined to help him.  Archie has been in his shoes and he knows what it is like to be on the run so he instantly forms a connection to Ricky.  However, we learn that Ricky is actually Joaquin’s little brother and he has gotten mixed up with the Gargoyles, as he tries to take down the Red Paladin himself.  Archie is frustrated by this betrayal and it seems like he can’t trust anyone anymore.  Perhaps it is time for Archie to bring the fight directly to the Gargoyle King, but we still have to determine who that is first.

“I guess I just feel a lot better about things.”

At the end of the episode, Betty is upset with her mother for selling their house.  Alice keeps busy by packing boxes, but Betty seems distant and distracted, as she stares at a burning candle.  Later on, Betty meets up with Jughead and Archie to bring the team together again and says that she feels a lot better about things.  Alice walks into her house and sees that it is on fire, which means that Betty has taken a page out of Cheryl Blossom’s book, as she takes her anger out in a destructive way.  Betty has kept the darkness away for quite some time now, but has it just re-surfaced?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but I’m worried about our girl, Betty for sure.  

I also want to take a minute to say that I am incredibly saddened by the news of Luke Perry’s passing.  I grew up watching him as Pike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills, 90210, and I continued to be blessed to witness his performance as Fred Andrews on Riverdale. Here are some of my favorite memories of him below.  RIP Luke Perry.
