Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 6 episode 3: “Alaska”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 3, I learned that taking a risk for just a moment may be worth it after all.

Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In season 6 episode 3, “Alaska,” Dwight and Al team up to investigate the dead under Virginia’s orders while trying to make a game out of it. Meanwhile, a deadly plague threatens to do damage and a surprise ending leaves us in tears.

My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 3 are:

5

“Maybe you changed but you’ll still be the man they know.”

In the beginning of the episode, Morgan talks about how he feels like he’s been so many different versions of himself, but he is reminded that he will still be able to help his friends even if he can’t recognize himself.

I thought this was important because Morgan has been wavering in his identity lately and perhaps he needs to just focus on getting them out safely, which defines who he is. It doesn’t matter what weapon he uses. He is still their friend and he will do whatever it takes to bring them to safety.

“People die because shit went wrong.”

It’s Al and Dwight’s turn to get the spotlight during this episode, as we learn that Virginia has them investigating places that have failed. They are supposed to record everything and find out what happened there so it doesn’t happen again.

It’s an interesting strategy, but Al thinks it’s a bunch of bullshit. At least they have a fun game to play, as they begin collecting licenses from all of the dead. They have every state except for one…Alaska.

I have to say that I really loved the friendship between Dwight and Al. Later in the episode, Al talks about her brother and says she didn’t want to lose another one. Dwight has stepped into that brother role for sure and I thought it was authentic and moving.

“You’re not gonna like this.”

So not only do Dwight and Al have to deal with walkers, but we now also have disgusting rats infected with the Bubonic plague. Gross. Dwight and Al have a decision to make, but Al thinks that they need to get out of there because Virginia won’t want to help them.

Only of course Dwight gets infected…

We could sure use Isabelle right about now.

2

“It’s good to hear your voice.”

Al makes it to the roof and tries to radio over to Isabelle. We know that she has been listening to her channel for quite some time and even tells Dwight about it. Dwight tells her that she has the chance to run away with her, but when Al watches the video Dwight made for her, she realizes that she also needs to do everything in her power to save him.

Al reaches out to the channel and tells the helicopter it is not safe to land. Isabelle warns her to stay off the channel, but also points Al in the right direction. There is a case of beer waiting for her along with the antibiotics needed.

Al tells Isabelle it is good to hear her voice, but it looks like it’s going to be a while before we get to this reunion…speaking of reunions.

1

“Honey is that you?”

After hearing Al on the channel, we get a female voice who offers to help. Dwight previously had this heartwarming talk with Al where he explains that if he ever did see Sherry again, he would just hold her.

Dwight doesn’t want to get his hopes up, but the voice on the other line is Sherry. We witness this beautiful reunion between the two of them and I have to say it’s about time!

Al witnesses it as well and I thought this was important so she wouldn’t give up hope either.

Overall, I thought this was a really good episode. But it also left us with more questions. Al thinks that the rats were infected intentionally and they run into a similar message on the wall about the end being the beginning so who is this new mysterious threat and how does this fit in with the Virginia angle?

The messages seem to be very biblical as well, which makes me think they want to wipe the slate clean and start the world over, but I’m interested to find out more.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 11: “The Gamblers”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 11, the Winchesters asked themselves if luck could really fix everything?  Well maybe not, but that will never stop them from doing the right thing, even if the odds are not in their favor.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In Thursday night’s episode, “The Gamblers,” Sam and Dean head to Alaska to see if they can turn their luck around.  Meanwhile, Castiel receives a surprising phone call that could change everything.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 11 are:

5

“He wants us off our game.”

Sam and Dean’s luck has not turned around just yet, but they start to wonder why Chuck/God has stripped it away from them.  Dean recognizes that Chuck wants to make them weak, but what is Chuck’s ultimate plan here?

It may be possible that Chuck wants Sam and Dean to question everything so that he can take advantage of their decisions or is this all one big test for them to prove their worth in the final battle?

We’ll have to wait to find out…

4

“Magic Pool Hall.”

I don’t know about you, but I thought this was one of the coolest concepts and episodes I have seen on SPN in a while.  The idea of a Magic Pool Hall to gamble a chance at doubling your luck really worked for me.

Sam and Dean learn that if their coin goes blank, they have to leave.  There’s always a catch and we realize that once your luck is gone, you are out of time, but does Dean have what it takes to wipe out the competition?

3

“I learn from my brother.”

Dean proves to be quite the worthy opponent and I was beyond impressed with his pool skills, but Sam and Dean quickly realize that someone is stealing everyone’s luck…Atrox Fortuna, the Roman goddess of fate and luck.

Atrox Fortuna claims that Dean is just a “beach read” and is way more interested in Sam playing.  Sam accepts the challenge and shows off his own skills, proving that he has learned quite a bit from big brother Dean over the years.

Go Sam!

2

“Don’t play his game. Make him play yours.”

Sam and Dean decide to challenge Atrox Fortuna to free everyone in the pool hall, even though it looks like their luck may be running out.  Atrox Fortuna seems intrigued by their offer, but shows off her own skills before Sam even gets his turn.

Sam and Dean surprisingly leave with their lives, but are shocked when everyone else follows them out of the pool hall.  It seems their honorable acts did not go unnoticed, as Atrox Fortuna says she thought their kind no longer existed…heroes.

The Winchesters have certainly earned this title, but let’s hope they can use Atrox Fortuna’s advice to stop Chuck/God in the end.

Dean starts Baby back up and it looks like the Winchesters are back!

“It’s really him.”

Castiel tracks down a lead and is shocked to learn that Jack Klein has been spotted.  After witnessing Jack devour some hearts, Castiel is not sure what he is about to discover, but we learn that it is the real Jack and Billie has been keeping him hidden in The Empty to keep him off Chuck’s radar.

We witness a beautiful and heartwarming reunion between Jack, Castiel, Sam, and Dean, which honestly brought tears to my eyes, as their son returns to the family.

It seems that our theories have been spot on, as Jack may be the only one who is actually strong enough to stop Chuck/God for good.  And so the countdown to the end begins…

Stay tuned SPN family!  New episodes return on Monday, March 16th!  We’re nearing the end now!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 10: “Monday Monster Mayhem”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 10, we learned that the hero thing is not always fun and sometimes it’s up to the guest star to save the day, but is being downgraded to normal right for the Winchesters?

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “The Heroes’ Journey,” Sam and Dean run into some bad luck, as they head out to help their old friend, Garth.  Meanwhile, an underground monster fight club is making waves, but what will happen when our favorite hunters end up as the main event?

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 10 are:

5

“We’re cursed.”

Sam and Dean start off their day with a normal routine.  Sam decides to cook and Dean wants to stock up on supplies, but the day begins to get a little bit strange when one bad thing happens after another. 

Dean’s special credit card from Charlie gets declined, Sam comes down with a cold, and even Baby breaks down.

I wish Charlie could have hooked me up with one of those hacked credit cards too!

4

“I sort of named him after you….”

Sam and Dean get a call from Garth and decide to head out to help him.  Garth is enjoying life as a family man, cherishing the little things in life.  He may be a werewolf now, but it looks like things are working out for him after all.

Sam and Dean meet his baby twins named Sam and…Castiel.  Poor Dean!

They are really adorable though!

3

“Let’s misbehave.”

Dean’s bad luck continues as his teeth start to really hurt.  Luckily, Garth is now a dentist, but we learn that Dean has never been to the dentist before and now apparently has 17 cavities.  Yikes, it’s time to start flossing!

Meanwhile, Garth’s wife offers to help Sam with his cold and gives him a home remedy to try…filled with cayenne pepper.

At least it’s not all bad, as Garth puts Dean to sleep while he works on his teeth, allowing us to see Dean channel his inner Gene Kelly in black and white.  I have to say that the tap dancing was fantastic.  Dean can sing, dance, and fight monsters.  Is there anything he can’t do?

“Then I guess we need a grenade launcher.”

Sam and Dean find out about an underground monster fight club and decide to check it out, but Sam reminds him that they can’t really bust in there with guns blazing since they are normal now.

Sam and Dean stock up on weapons, but wind up in trouble when they end up as the main event for Monday Monster Mayhem.

Watch out, guys!

“I learned from the best.”

The heroes don’t always have to save the day, as Sam and Dean wind up in quite a bit of trouble.  Luckily, Garth comes to their rescue and does some serious damage with a hunter’s best friend…C-4.

The monsters get Garthed for sure, but Garth reminds Sam and Dean that he learned from the best.  He tells them that there is this place in Alaska where they can potentially get their luck back, but what kind of catch will it involve?

Overall, I thought this was a fun episode filled with the Winchester fluff I have come to know and adore.  As we now approach the second half of the final season, I’m hoping that we can balance in some more fun episodes to remind us why we all fell in love with this series in the first place.

Stay tuned SPN family!
