Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 10 episode 3: “Secret She Shed Down by the Sea Shore”

Happy Sunday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 10 episode 3, Frank reminded us, “Ask me no questions, I will tell you no lies,” but there’s always a question regarding Frank’s methods.  Please note spoilers are ahead.

In tonight’s episode, “Which America?” Liam meets Mavar, who seems willing to help him find his identity.  Meanwhile, Ian and Mickey learn the importance of having the talk, Debbie sparks a union a little bit too soon, and Carl grows closer to Anne.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 10 episode 3 are:

5

“No holla…never holla.”

After Liam continues to search for answers about his identity and heritage, he crosses paths with a used car salesman named Mavar, played by Anthony Alabi.  Mavar thinks that Liam definitely needs some guidance and decides to take him under his wing.

It looks like Liam may have finally found a good influence and perhaps Mavar is a new friend for V too!

4

“It was like taking candy from a baby.”

Business is booming for Carl and Anne, as everyone is lining up to order some extra tartar sauce.  Carl begins to have second thoughts about his long distance relationship with Kelly and decides to get closer to Anne, who invites him over for tamales.

Carl claims he makes the best tamales, but it’s clear that Anne’s family is not too impressed, but is this the start of a new romance for Carl?

I’m not sure how his boss is going to take it…

3

“I think we need to have a talk.”

After Ian finds out that he is up for a parole meeting, everyone asks if he has had “the talk” with Mickey.  Mickey got thrown in jail for Ian and it seems like he wants Ian to stay with him, but Mickey has a change of heart, realizing that sometimes you just have to “let her go,” or let him go in this case.

Mickey does the right thing and stops Ian from making a huge mistake and even gets him a phone to use so he can face time Lip and baby Freddy.

Now that’s love!

2

“Friendship with a really great lady.”

Kev continues his “side hustle” business, but only if you know the secret password:  Alibi Side Hustle.  It’s not really too subtle, but Kev seems to be making out quite well by selling some stolen goods on the side.

After Kev meets Mavar, he is motivated to immediately find a new best friend for V and decides to reach out to potential new friends on Tinder, which definitely sends some mixed signals.

After holding his own version of The Bachelor, Kev narrows down his choices, but V helps him break up the party, apologizing to the women.

Although it looks like Kev’s plan might have actually been a success, as number 42, Mimi, falls asleep at the bar and V realizes that they actually have a lot in common.  I’m not sure anyone can really fill Fiona’s shoes at this point, but I’m glad that V has found someone else to confide in.

1

“I haven’t used my real social since draft dodging in 69!”

Debbie screws up when she uses everyone’s real social security numbers to open up their ATM cards, which makes everyone extremely angry.  Mikey decides to show Frank Debbie’s secret she shed and he is impressed, but ends up taking everything to help pay Mikey’s vet bill…don’t get me started on that one.

When Debbie discovers that everything is gone, she is more than angry and decides to hunt down Frank with a Taser.  Look out, Frank!  Debbie’s coming for you!  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Purge” season 2 episode 3: “Blindspots”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the USA network’s The Purge season 2 episode 3 last night, we learned that the voice over is back, reminding us that “when you embrace the Purge, anything can happen.  What will you choose?”  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “Blindspots,” Marcus begins to suspect his wife, Esme follows a mystery man in a mask, and Ben attempts to channel his rage.  Meanwhile, we get a glimpse into Ryan’s past, learning more about his group prior to the armed robberies.  My top 5 moments from The Purge season 2 episode 3 are:

5

“This is the score to fund the rest of our lives.”

In the beginning of the episode, Tommy stands trial and pleads guilty.  He tries to explain that all he did was cross over a line when the Purge siren sounded, but he is charged with a Level R offense.  I’m still not clear on what that stands for, but I guess it’s pretty bad since he is sentenced to death.  Tommy cries out that this is not justice, but it looks like he is going to need some serious help getting out of this one.

Meanwhile, we flash back to 8 years ago and get a glimpse into Ryan’s past.  We learn that he and the rest of the group used to be police officers and they went out one Purge Night to take down a criminal.  Only they ended up crossing paths with the Captain, realizing that she was working for the criminal.  Ryan is basically blocked from finding any other type of government job and the rest of the group quits the force with him, standing by his side.

We start to truly understand why this group seems like a family, but are they prepared to do something extremely risky by going after a score outside of Purge Night?  I can’t wait to find out!

4

“You’re not good at hiding unless you need to be.”

An excellent point for sure, Esme.  I think Esme is starting to be my favorite character on the show.  I love that she works for the NFFA, but she also wants to find out the truth and she is not afraid to follow her own leads to do so.  Although it’s a safe bet that this may get her into some serious trouble later on.

We get another connection between our characters when Esme starts looking into a mystery man on the cameras.  He hasn’t necessarily done anything illegal, but Esme senses that something is up and we discover that she is actually following Ryan.

This isn’t the only connection we get, as Esme decides to call Marcus’s son, Darren.  She shares the information she found at Professor Adams’ apartment, hoping to get more information, but Darren seems cautious since she works for the NFFA.

3

“Cases like these…it’s someone you know.  Someone you’re close to.”

Marcus continues to try and find out more about who tried to kill him, but he is shocked when his wife is suggested as a potential suspect.  We find out that Michelle is actually Marcus’s second wife, but he can’t seem to believe that she would be capable of something like this.

Either way, Marcus has his guard up and decides to activate the tracker on her phone, following her to see what she is really up to.  We discover that Michelle is attending some kind of safe space group to discuss Purge trauma, as Michelle opens up about what happened and how she is feeling.  Marcus clearly feels awful for suspecting his wife and decides to surprise her with a romantic dinner.

Does this really clear Michelle as a suspect though?  If Michelle is that good, she may have been on to Marcus’s suspicions already and could have done this to throw him off track.

We’ll have to see how this plays out, but after Marcus is almost run down while he is jogging; we know that the killer is not going to rest until he is eliminated for good.

2

“Was it something you had to do?”

Ben continues to trip out after Purge Night and it’s obvious that his rage is taking over.  Ben goes for a drive and we get a Purge Easter Egg, as the famous voice over returns!  Fans of The Purge season 1 will remember that the character, Joe, was always listening to this voice over, which was later revealed to be from Bobby Sheridan’s lectures.

Ben shows up to slaughter an animal to channel some of this rage, but he doesn’t go through with it.  Later on, he stops to get some strawberries and ends up brutally murdering the man selling them after he tries to scam him out of his correct change.

It looks like the violence from Purge Night is seeping out into the rest of the year, so is it actually making people even more dangerous?  Either way, Ben is clearly not over what happened and his roommate better get out of there because I have a feeling he’s next!

1

“You’re either a ghost or a glitch and I want to know why.”

After Esme follows Ryan, he shows off his own skills and confronts her later on.  She reveals that she works for the NFFA and that he is basically a person of interest.  Ryan reminds her that he hasn’t done anything wrong, but we know that he is planning this big score.

Will Esme get in his way or will he have second thoughts about going through with it?

Maybe Ryan will be the one to help Esme solve Professor Adams’ murder? 

I’m not sure, but I love these character connections and I can’t wait until they all come face-to-face with one another.  Stay tuned!

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

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 3: “The Rupture”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 3, I realized that sacrifice is never easy, but sometimes it is necessary.  Would you let the world die so that someone else could live or would you be able to make the impossible choice that Sam Winchester is left with?  Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “The Rupture,” the team works together to retrieve Lilith’s horn to summon the souls back to hell, but not everything goes according to plan.  Meanwhile, a sacrifice is made that reminds us that we are coming to the end, but what does it mean for the fate of our remaining characters?  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 3 are:

5

“Go team!”

In the beginning of the episode, Rowena tries another ritual to cast the souls back to hell, but it doesn’t work.  Rowena says that they are all going to die and that no magic can stop it.  Dean insists that they try and come up with another plan and it seems like Belphegor has an idea with potential.

Belphegor explains that Lilith had a horn to summon all of the souls at once as a measure of last resort, but that it is probably locked away somewhere in hell.  At this point, no one else has another suggestion, so it’s time for the team to get to work.

4

“Not at any price…”

Ketch is still recovering in the hospital, but he is anxious to return to his friends.  We know that Ketch was hired to track down Belphegor by a demon named Ardat and she certainly makes her presence known now.  Ardat threatens Ketch and demands that he give up his friends, but Ketch has this moment of redemption. 

The old Ketch would have given them up to save himself,  but he remains loyal and true.  Ardat rips out Ketch’s heart and leaves him there to die, but we know that not everyone is going to make it on the last season of SPN.  Either way, I’m glad that he did the right thing in the end.  RIP Ketch.

3

“You’re an abomination…”

Castiel is forced to join Belphegor in hell to track down Lilith’s horn, but he is not exactly pleased about it.  Belphegor claims he wants to be friends, but Castiel cannot bear to look at him wearing Jack’s body like a suit.  Castiel tells Belphegor that he is an abomination, but proves to be quite useful when it comes to opening up the box to retrieve the horn.  Nice singing, Cass!

Ardat attempts to break up the party, but is eliminated.  However, she warns Castiel that Belphegor is trying to claim the throne of hell for himself.  Belphegor’s true motives are revealed, explaining that he wants to absorb all the souls so that he can become a god.  After all, there is a vacancy for that position.

Castiel is able to stop him in time, but Belphegor clearly does some damage when he pretends to be Jack one last time.  Castiel recognizes the lie and destroys Belphegor, but it broke his heart to do so.  Will Castiel be able to recover from this or is he too far gone now?  I can’t bear to see him apart from the Winchesters, but he may need to find his sense of worth on his own.  We need you Cass!

2

“It has to be you.”

SPN is not holding anything back for the final season, as Rowena suddenly realizes that “death is an infinite vessel.”  She explains to Sam that she can absorb all the souls and bring them back to hell, but her death will seal the spell.  Sam tells her that there has to be another way, but that pesky prophecy comes back up, as Rowena reminds him that he will need to be the one to kill her.

Sam and Rowena have grown very fond of one another and this moment was beyond heartbreaking, as Sam kills Rowena to save them all.  Rowena absorbs the souls and says goodbye to her boys before she enters into the rift, which had me crying my eyes out.

Rowena has been one of my absolute favorite characters, but I thought that she also found redemption here.  The witch who used to look out for her own interests truly discovered her purpose and this moment with Sam reminded her that she did have a family in the end.

Farewell Rowena.  I will miss you so much!

1

“I don’t think there’s anything left to say…”

After this incredibly heartbreaking moment, Sam and Dean return to the bunker.  Sam is dealing with his grief and Dean reminds him that they did it.  Dean and Castiel have an argument and Castiel feels like Dean is still blaming him for Mary’s death.  There has been a distance between these two for quite a while, but Castiel decides that it’s time for him to move on now. 

Where will Castiel go?  Is there a way for him and Dean to resolve their differences?  I hope so because I can’t bear to see him separated from Sam and Dean.  Castiel reminds Dean that he has Sam, but I have always looked at them all as a family and I can’t bear to see them apart.  Let’s hope this gets resolved!  Stay tuned SPN family!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 3: Saved by the Bobby Pin!

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 3, I realized that change is not necessarily a bad thing.  But what happens when new threats emerge because of this change?  Is it truly possible to earn a clean slate with so many buried secrets?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Sixty:  Dog Day Afternoon,” Jughead adjusts to life at Stonewall Prep, but a new rival doesn’t make it easy for him.  Meanwhile, Edgar calls Betty, but she’s ready for the final showdown.  My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 3 are:

5

“I’ll take those odds.”

In this episode, Archie decides that he wants to turn the gym into a community center where kids can go, especially after Munroe’s (Mad Dog) little brother gets caught up with a gang down at the arcade.  I feel like they could have picked a more threatening spot, but I’ll go with it for now.  Veronica is willing to lend Archie the money he needs, but Archie wants to do things his way.

We get an enthusiastic car wash from the boys, but it doesn’t earn enough money.  After Archie tries out being a vigilante, he ends up taking the money from the drug dealers down at the arcade, but it’s not like they can use that either.

Archie’s mother wants him to get out of Riverdale, but Veronica reminds her that she is willing to invest in her son, explaining that he can do so much good in town and I think she’s right.  The community center is open and it looks like Mrs. Andrews will be sticking around for a while after all.

4

“You will do as you’re told.  Nothing more.  Nothing less.”

Even though we get a brief intimate moment between Choni, Cheryl continues to have her chats with dead Jason, which just gets creepier and creepier.  After Nana Rose starts to have some trouble with reality as well, Toni decides to hire a night nurse, Darius.  Cheryl channels her best impression of Beauty and the Beast by telling him that he is forbidden from entering certain areas of the estate, desperate to keep Jason a secret.

Cheryl thinks that someone moved Jason and decides to fire Darius after she discovers that he was in the basement, claiming he heard rats.  It looks like Darius was on to something, as Cheryl finds one of the rats inside Jason’s stomach, which instantly made my skin crawl.

The cat, or the rat, is out of the bag, as Toni finally stumbles upon Jason.  Cheryl actually handles this surprisingly well, asking if Toni has ever met Jason before.

Will Toni be able to bring Cheryl back to reality?  Let’s hope so!

3

“Blood doesn’t wash out…”

Hiram somehow finds out that Veronica is thinking of changing her name and decides to pay her a visit.  He may be in jail, but he owns that jail, which apparently means he can come and go whenever he pleases?  I’ll leave that one alone, but Hiram decides to tell Veronica the story about how he created the Hiram Lodge name, explaining that his name used to be Luna.

Hiram tells Veronica that changing her name will not wash out her past sins, but Veronica decides to go through with it anyway.  Only she won’t be changing her name to Veronica Gomez, she will now be known as Veronica Luna, which clearly infuriates her father.

Will Veronica Luna be able to start fresh or will her Lodge past continue to get in her way?

2

“You need to buy us time!”

After Charles sends in an undercover agent to deliver pizza at the Farm, things go horribly wrong and Edgar decides to get on the phone.  Only he seems to be more interested in calling Betty directly with his list of demands.

Under Charles’s instruction, Betty asks Edgar to release some hostages and poor Polly shows up with a bomb.  Edgar has removed the pin on the dead man’s switch and the timer is counting down pretty quickly, but Betty’s bobby pin comes to the rescue, as she saves the day.  Go Betty!

Betty decides to get Edgar his list of demands since she knows people and shows up at his front door, ready to end this once and for all, but she is clearly outnumbered and is knocked unconscious before anything too major can happen.

1

“Edgar ascended…”

When Betty wakes up, she is held hostage with Alice in a motel room.  So good to see you Alice!  We get an impressive mother-daughter tag team, as these Cooper ladies show us what they are made of.  Betty works on trying to get the innocent Farmies on the bus, while her mother goes after Edgar.

Apparently Edgar wants to get on his recently built rocket, but Alice has other plans for him.  After a gunshot is heard, Betty panics, but Alice is able to eliminate Edgar once and for all.  At least I think so.  You never know on Riverdale!  It looks like this Farm cult story has wrapped itself up neatly, but I’m slightly confused on Edgar’s behavior in this episode.

Part of what made Edgar so intriguing was that he kept his cool and used manipulation to get what he wanted, but he almost seemed like a loose cannon in this episode.  I’m not sure if there are some holes in that plot or if the writers were just done with his story, but I was slightly disappointed with this outcome.

Either way, I’m glad to see that both Betty and Alice are all right.  So I guess it’s on to the next mystery, as Betty and Jughead get some kind of tape delivered to them at their doorstep.  Is this a warning or a threat?  I’m not sure, but we’ll have to see how this all links to Jughead’s future disappearance.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” season 10 episode 3: “Ghosts”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season 10 episode 3, I realized that sometimes our worst fears and nightmares exist within our own minds.  Can we ever truly shake them or will they continue to wreak havoc on our essence until we face our inner demons once and for all?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.

In last night’s episode, “Ghosts,” Alpha requests a meeting with Michonne and the others, reminding us that she is always watching.  Meanwhile, Carol’s lack of sleep begins to catch up with her, Eugene gets a reality check, and Siddiq’s trauma continues to overwhelm him.  My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 10 episode 3 are:

5

“We are going to listen.”

In the beginning of the episode, we are presented with several time stamps, throwing us into quite a bit of chaos, as our group begins to hold off constant waves of walkers.  The group thinks that Alpha is behind this, but Lydia explains that this doesn’t seem like her mother, explaining that her mother would send her entire horde to eliminate them at once if she truly wanted to eliminate them.

After some lack of consensus among the group, Michonne puts her leadership skills to the test and gives a motivational speech, reminding everyone that they need to act as one.  Michonne is ready to honor Alpha’s request for a meeting, but are they putting themselves in even more danger here?

4

“You think our friendship is just nothing?”

Eugene and Rosita get some screen time in this episode and it looks like the sleep deprivation is really allowing the truth to leak out, as Rosita tells Eugene that they are never going to happen.  Eugene is head-over-heels in love with Rosita and while I feel bad for him, I think perhaps he needed to hear this.  Is there someone else out there for Eugene or is it possible that Rosita has repressed some feelings for Eugene?

I’m not sure, but now I have this feeling that Eugene might sacrifice himself to protect Rosita or the baby.  I guess I’ll leave that for a mid-season finale discussion when a main character is typically killed off, but nothing happens by accident on TWD.

3

“I am trying to make things better.”

Negan recognizes that everyone is on edge and would much prefer to stay in Alexandria in his peaceful garden, but Gabriel doesn’t give him much of a choice, sending him out with Aaron to take out some walkers.  Negan tries to do his part, but Aaron is clearly not a fan, still blaming Negan for what happened to the love of his life.

After some funny moments from Negan, things get a little bit serious when Aaron reminds Negan that he is to blame for the death of his wife and I’m not sure he should be bringing this up, but Negan keeps his cool.  After Aaron is temporarily blinded, Negan actually helps him and you have to wonder why?  Negan claims he is trying to do better, but does he have another reason for keeping Aaron alive?  Either way, it was great to see some well deserved screen time for our favorite anti-hero.

2

“You need to sleep…”

Carol has not been sleeping and she is also taking some kind of pills, but the ghosts become all too real when Carol begins hallucinating.  She sees Henry and we even get an interesting breakfast table scenario with Daryl, which I kind of loved, bringing us this alternate reality to life.  It was difficult to figure out what was real and what was just a dream, but I thought that worked well, as we almost felt like we were right there with Carol, desperately trying to put the pieces together.

Carol is clearly not over what happened and I can’t say that I blame her, but will her quest for vengeance break her in the end?  We’ll have to see what happens next, but I’m hoping that Daryl can help her before it’s too late.

1

“I look at you…and I feel nothing!”

The most exciting part of the episode for me was the meeting with Alpha.  Alpha reminds everyone that she is always watching and schools them all on how many times they have actually crossed the border.  Alpha initially seems like she is ready to follow through on some kind of punishment, but decides that there will be no bloodshed today.

Carol speaks her mind and calls Alpha out on her “bullshit,” bringing a gun to this showdown.  Alpha continues to test limits, telling Carol that Henry called out her name right before they took his head, which pushes Carol over the edge.

Michonne intervenes before Carol can shoot Alpha and Alpha is actually willing to forgive her “mother to mother,” but this is clearly not the end of this rivalry.  Alpha wants more land and reminds them all of their place, but something tells me that Carol is not going to back down at all.

There was a lot of chilling tension in this showdown and I thought it really complimented Carol’s own mental battle.  Alpha wants Carol to fear her, but Carol doesn’t feel anything when it comes to Alpha, but that doesn’t mean that her fears have vanished completely.  Rather, they exist within her own mind, threatening to suffocate her with painful memories and thoughts, which may be even more terrifying.

I thought that the majority of this episode was so well done.  I could have done without the drama between Rosita and Eugene, but I understand that we need to catch up with other characters, but it almost disrupted the chilling tone I was getting from the first half of the episode, which captivated my undivided attention.

Time played such an interesting component in the episode as well, as we got several time stamps in the beginning, a clock waking Carol up, and a watch with no second or minute hand, reminding us that ghosts exist outside of time and space.  They never rest, but perhaps our group needs to take a serious power nap before they face the next threat of walkers.

My main question after watching the episode is…where are these walkers coming from?  Gamma and Lydia say they are not coming from The Whisperers, so what’s actually causing the groups to head in their direction?  I can’t wait to find out.  Stay tuned!

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

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 3: “Dee Day”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 3, we were reminded that “preparation is the key to victory,” but what happens when the plan is thrown off by…Dee Day?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In Wednesday night’s episode, “Dee Day,” it’s finally Dee’s turn, as she gets a full day devoted to her.  Only the gang isn’t necessarily too thrilled about this, as they are plotting another scheme that requires their full attention.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 3 are:

5

“Who cares about her feelings?”

If you are a Sunny fan, then you will remember “Mac Day” (season 9, episode 5), when the gang was forced to go through an entire day doing whatever Mac wanted to do.  Well, the tables have now turned and it is Dee’s turn to shine, but everyone seems ready to forget a day devoted to Dee, but she’s still prepared to make it work no matter what.

As soon as Dee begins, she wants to talk about her feelings and of course, the gang decides to tune her out, focusing in on their own inner monologues.  After all, it’s not like they get to yell into the “Scream Pillow” anymore.

4

“Her characters suck!”

Dee hilariously decides to force Dennis, Charlie, Mac, and Frank to dress up as some of her former characters, which was actually really funny, but things get a little weird when they wind up on stage and she forces Charlie and Dennis to kiss.  Mac clearly feels left out, but when Frank gets on stage, he steals the show, finally releasing the clams.  Leave it to Frank to make something weird even weirder.

3

“I want to scream Bird!”

The gang is not allowed to make fun of Dee during Dee Day and she decides to take them all out bird watching.  Of course this makes the gang want to scream out “Bird” even more, but they are forced to swallow down their insults.  Keep it going, Dee!

2

“That’s what his soul looks like.”

Dee doesn’t hold anything back and explains that she wants Dennis to remove his make-up, but things get really interesting when Dennis walks in and looks like a completely different person.  Dennis is forced to kick game to a lady with this appearance and it clearly is a nightmare for him.  The gang points out that his pec has even been deflated, suggesting that perhaps the Golden God isn’t really that much of a god underneath all the lies and deception.

1

“You just insulted me on Dee Day.”

After the gang reveals that their ultimate plan was a success, caring more about getting a public urination act to pass by distracting the one female member of the board, Dee tries to explain that she is actually the one who executed everything, but of course they do not want to listen.

When the clock goes off, they start insulting Dee, but she has outsmarted them, turning back the clock, which means that they will be forced to endure another Dee Day and I have to say that they deserve it.  Go Dee!

Overall, this was another fun throwback to a fan favorite episode, but I’m still waiting for some crazy laugh out loud moments.  Hopefully we will get a Charlie centric episode soon!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “American Horror Story: 1984” season 9 episode 3: “Happy Jingles Day!”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the FX network’s American Horror Story:  1984 season 9 episode 3, I started to wonder if there truly is method behind madness or if some people are just evil?  Well, it looks like we are about to test this theory out and then some.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “Slashdance,” we get a glimpse into Rita and Ray’s past, discovering that everyone has something to hide at Camp Redwood.  Meanwhile, there are still two killers on the loose while impostors run around dressed up as Mr. Jingles to celebrate the anniversary of the massacre.  My top 5 moments from the American Horror Story:  1984 season 9 episode 3 are:

“You totally missed it!”

Everyone gets quite a scare when multiple Jingles start appearing, as we quickly learn that it is Jingles Day.  Several kids decide to prank people to celebrate the day of the massacre because apparently it’s tradition, but they are in for a big surprise when the real Mr. Jingles shows up to break up the party.

I guess he isn’t too impressed by the day in his honor, as he proceeds to brutally kill these impostors, but he hesitates when he comes across one with an inhaler, which suggests that perhaps Mr. Jingles doesn’t want to kill everyone…

“Oh honey, I wish you could see your face right now…”

Brooke and Rita make it to the car, but Brooke starts to panic when her friends take too long to catch up.  She thinks that she should go for help, but Rita has other plans when she injects Brooke with a tranquilizer, providing us with an interesting twist for sure, as we learn that Rita has been less than honest with the rest of the group.

But why does everyone seem to be so focused on Brooke?  We already got a glimpse into her past and I’m sure some of Joey’s family members might want to seek out revenge, but is there something else from her past that has not surfaced yet?

“Maybe it isn’t all my fault.”

So, we learn that Rita is not Rita at all and her real name is Donna Chambers.  She is a psychologist who studies serial killers and she paid Mr. Jingles a visit in the asylum a week before he escaped.  Donna gets Mr. Jingles to open up and chat, as she explains that she thinks that something in his life caused him to be this way.

Donna certainly seems to blame pornography and the military quite a bit, but she wants to see Mr. Jingles in his natural habitat, as we discover that she was the one to help plan his escape.  Donna talks about redemption, but I’m not sure if Mr. Jingles is really making that much progress during his killing spree…although I guess sparing one life is something?

Donna is also far from innocent, as she meets the real Nurse Rita on the way to Camp Redwood and decides to take on her identity.  While it initially seemed like Donna killed poor Rita, Rita wakes up later on when Xavier and Montana are hiding from Mr. Jingles and begins screaming even after they tell her to be quiet.  Rita’s day doesn’t get any easier, as Mr. Jingles decides to shut her up permanently…by shoving an oar in her mouth.

“What the hell are you doing down there?”

“I’m dying!”  The campy horror humor continues in this episode and several moments made me laugh out loud.  Ray doesn’t learn from his past mistakes, as he repeatedly leaves his friends to die to save himself…but what goes around comes around.  Ray yells out, “See ya,” when riding off on the motorcycle…right before Mr. Jingles decides to decapitate him.  So long, Ray!

“Why the hell haven’t you killed her yet?”

Fake Rita was not the only twist during the episode, as Montana comes face-to-face with the Night Stalker at the end of the episode.  While it initially seemed like Montana was in some real trouble here, the two proceed to make out and Montana asks him why he hasn’t killed her yet.

So now of course, I am extremely interested in Montana’s past and motive and it looks like we will get to see a glimpse of it in next week’s episode.  The twists and turns keep coming our way and I have to say that I am absolutely loving the new season!
