Ranking the top 5 moments from “Younger” season 6 episode 6: “I Think We’ll Be Stronger Together”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching TV Land’s Younger season 6 episode 6, I realized that home is where the heart is and in this case, home is where your publishing family is.  Sometimes all we need is a little compromise in order for everyone to be happy.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Merger, She Wrote,” Liza and Charles are invited to a mind altering retreat and bump into an unexpected guest.  Meanwhile, Kelsey and Zane talk things out, Diana shows off a hidden talent, and Maggie tries to get her mojo back.  My top 5 moments from Younger season 6 episode 6 are:

5

“I wish there was a way we could work together…”

In this episode, Liza approaches Charles about a potential “big bang boom merger,” hoping that there is some way for everyone to get along and work together.  It seems like a good idea since Charles essentially gets the profit from both publishing houses, but Charles initially proposes that Liza come work for him at Mercury instead.  Liza does not think that she can do that to Kelsey, explaining that their working relationship is also a friendship.  It’s clear that Liza does not want to hurt anyone’s feelings here, but is there another solution?

4

“The problem is you didn’t audition.”

The romance author Millennial snagged is auditioning voice actresses for her new book, but no one seems to really get the role right.  That is, until Diana starts reading from the book and everyone realizes that she is absolutely perfect for this.  Diana seems hesitant at first, but starts to really try out her husky voice to enhance the experience and I think she may have found her true calling!

3

“And where does that leave us?”

During the voice recording, Zane walks in with Audrey Colbert, ready to dazzle Kelsey.  Only Audrey’s reading leaves a lot to be desired.  Zane thinks that perhaps she just needs to warm up and suggests trying it again with more feeling, which prompts Audrey to provide us with an over-the-top extremely emotional reading, which is laugh out loud funny.  Perhaps Kelsey dodged a bullet with this one after all and we get to witness an adorable moment between Kelsey and Zane afterwards, as they share a drink together and discuss their potential future.  I’m still shipping these two together, but it looks like they have more obstacles headed their way soon.

2

“You have to experience microdosing first hand.”

Liza and Charles both get invited to an interesting retreat by a potential new author and get an unexpected surprise when they discover that Josh is there as well.  Liza’s dose has some interesting effects, as she starts to see Charles and Josh practically morphing into one another, leading to a show stopping dance number with…a plant.  Perhaps microdosing is not for Liza after all, but it does lead to some interesting questions.  Is Liza truly over Josh?  It seems like this love triangle hasn’t vanished completely just yet, but the Charliza fan in me is still on Team Charles.

1

“I want to come home.”

It seems like the retreat also gets Charles thinking, but in a different way, as he starts to truly contemplate the importance of family.  Charles asks Kelsey to buy Mercury…for one dollar.  He wants to return as an editor and also work with Liza with their relationship out in the open.  Everyone seems to be on board and I’m glad our favorite publishing family is back together, but where will this leave Zane?  Can he truly handle having Kelsey as his boss?  We’ll have to see how this plays out, but I’m not certain that the drama is over just yet.  Also, congratulations to Younger for being renewed for season 7!  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 5 episode 6: “We’ve Done the Impossible Before”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 6, I realized that “more things are possible than impossible,” but what happens when you lose that last faint glimmer of hope?  How do you keep going?  Do you hold on to the dream or do you face reality and stop searching for the impossible?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Little Prince,” the group works together to fix the plane, but they are running out of time.  Meanwhile, everyone takes a moment to share something about their feelings, connecting to the people around them.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 6 are:

5

“Off the record…”

Al went through quite the emotional roller coaster in episode 5, but she is trying to stay on track now and fix the plane.  Of course that’s easier said than done, but we take a brief moment for her and June to talk.  June recognizes that perhaps Al went through something when she was taken and reminds her that she once allowed her to talk about everything off the record, now giving Al the chance to do the same.

Al doesn’t share with June, but I thought this was a sweet moment and I actually really like the friendship between these two.  There are a lot of similarities between both characters and they both know what it’s like to shut people out, but it’s great to see that they are now developing so much and growing as characters.

4

“If you don’t do what I say, there’s gonna be another meltdown.”

Even though the majority of the episode is focused on filler share time for the group, we do get some drama, as we get to see Grace again in this episode.  Grace radios over to Morgan and explains that she needs their generator because the one she was using failed.  Grace explains that if the generator works, it will buy them some time, but that they better fix that plane soon.  No pressure guys!

3

“These things are always complicated.”

During the episode, John and Dwight continue their search for Sherry and Dwight doesn’t seem like he is initially up for any over sharing.  However, John continues to open up to him and shows him the scrabble letters he carries around with him from when June first revealed that she loved him.  I think it’s beyond sweet that John still holds on to them and I am still shipping John and June so much!

Dwight recognizes that John is a good person and sees the world a certain way.  He finally opens up a little bit about Sherry and explains that “she chose to give up everything” for him.  John finds a clue in the diner and ends up discovering an infinity note from Sherry or “Honey” in the car.  He reads the letter and discovers that this is the last letter that Sherry plans on writing, telling Dwight that she wants him to move on.

Dwight can tell that Sherry was there and is clearly excited and hopeful over this discovery, but John lies to him and tells him that he didn’t find anything. While I think that Dwight has a right to get some closure here, John recognizes that something like this would completely crush him and he decides to keep that glimmer of hope still going.  Is it the right call?  I’m not so sure, but I completely understand where John is coming from and I think he did this out of the goodness of his heart.  Then again, Dwight also deserves the truth.

2

“Just make sure you’re doing what they really asked.”

While the group is trying to fix the plane, Annie tries to convince Max and Dylan to leave with her.  Alicia explains that it’s not safe and desperately tries to get through to Annie.  Annie finally releases the guard around her and tells Alicia what happened with their parents.  She watched them all get sick after they were exposed to the radioactive walkers and was told to keep the group of children safe.  Annie has been carrying this burden around with her this entire time, which is no easy task for anyone.  Alicia recognizes where she is coming from and tells her that she constantly thinks about the last thing her own mother told her.

Annie still seems convinced that the right decision is to go back to hiding behind the dead, but Alicia asks her an important question, wondering if Annie finds surrounding herself with the dead easier than surrounding herself with the living.  Alicia understands what it feels like to want to run away, but she has gone through something very similar and wants to help Annie too.  Annie and the kids ultimately leave, but Alicia decides that she’s going in, even though she will need to make her way through a large group of walkers.  While Alicia Clark is my favorite zombie super hero, she is outnumbered here, but it looks like she is not giving up without a fight!

1

“Roads are not a necessary ingredient to this journey.”

While the group is working on the plane, Victor, Charlie, and Sarah continue to try and work on things on their end, but they don’t know how they are going to get to their friends.  It seems like the answer has been in front of them the whole time, as Charlie shows them a picture of our dear good friend Jimbo, sparking the idea to use his inflatable beer hot air balloon to reach their friends.

It looks like everything is working out, but Victor cannot find the perfect “coaster” to land on, as they end up having to put the balloon down very quickly, losing contact with Morgan over the radio.  Victor and Charlie are completely surrounded by walkers and they know that Morgan warned them to stay away from them, but will they be able to get out of this jam unharmed?  Luckily, Morgan has a new staff and he is going in, much like Alicia.  Let’s hope he can reach them in time!  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 6: “Tell Me How to Kill Them All”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 6, I learned that “we’re all the hero of our own story,” but there is always a choice to be made.  If we know right from wrong, which path do we head down?  The path toward survival or one toward revenge?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Memento Mori,” Murphy works with Clarke/Josephine to earn Abby’s trust.  Meanwhile, Raven and Echo take a moral stand, Diyoza attempts to save Octavia’s life, and Madi is haunted by the Dark Commander.  My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 6 are:

5

“I can’t lose you…”

Murphy teaches Josephine how to be Clarke and she seems to be a quick study, but she does take a moment to recognize that Clarke “was fairly awesome” and I have to agree with her.  Josephine is no Clarke; however, as she is out for herself, looking for a way to trick Abby into teaching the Primes how to make Nightbloods.  Clarke/Josephine proves to be a master manipulator, playing on Abby’s feelings for Kane.  Abby agrees to help, but will she really be on board once she finds out that her daughter is gone?  Let’s just hope she doesn’t give away all the secrets on how to become a Nightblood too quickly.

4

“She’s as lost as they come and yet you help her.”

Diyoza and Octavia are not having an easy time, as Octavia’s life is threatened once again.  Apparently there is a cure to help Octavia, but we quickly learn that she doesn’t have much time left.  Only the anomaly infecting her apparently has a message and Octavia may have been chosen for something?  I’m a little fuzzy on all of this and I’m hoping I get some more details because there are a lot of complicated story-lines going on, but I’m interested to see what this anomaly means for Octavia. 

I’m also still loving the friendship between Diyoza and Octavia, as Diyoza sees so much of herself in Octavia and is trying to help her before she “ends up in the same history page,” proving that it’s never too late for redemption, even though Diyoza doesn’t seem to be a fan of the concept.

3

“I take big swings.”

Clarke/Josephine may be a master manipulator, but it is possible that she has finally met her match with John Murphy, who puts his acting skills to the test.  Murphy is a survivor, but we never really know which side he is truly on, but that’s what makes his character so interesting.  After getting thrown into a cell with Bellamy, he is eventually called out, as Bellamy has been burned by him before.

Murphy ends up turning the tables on Clarke/Josephine; however, bringing Russell Lightbourne into the mix to protect his people.  We know that Murphy saw something when he died so his survival instinct is stirring, but let’s hope that he picks a side and stays with it.  That being said, it’s always fun to see this darker and dangerous side of Murphy, reminding us that he is not to be underestimated.

2

“No more lessons…”

“The flame is my guide and I am the flame.”  Well sure, but Madi is getting a lot more than she bargained for when the Dark Commander continues to invade her dreams.  She even starts seeing him in reflections and I have to admit that he is extremely creepy.  Gaia suggests that they complete a separation ritual, but the Dark Commander has other ideas, as he starts to worm his way in, corrupting Madi.

Is Madi going over to the dark side?  It is possible, as she is grieving over her recent loss, ready to learn how to “kill them all.”  Madi is choosing a path of revenge right now, but will she be able to find the light?  Let’s hope that Clarke can kick Josephine out of her mind before it’s too late, otherwise a new Dark Commander may be rising.  I’m loving this story-line and it’s about time Madi got some well deserved screen time!

1

“We do what Clarke would have done.”

Bellamy is grieving over his loss, but he tries to stay strong for his friends, recognizing that he is now the leader and he needs to do right by them because it’s what Clarke would have done.  Bellamy could have easily chosen a path of revenge, but he knows that this is not the right way.  The main focus is on surviving, but this is not going to be easy for our favorite characters, especially when new threats keep getting thrown at them.  Bellamy breaks the news to Madi about Clarke, which was incredibly heartbreaking and he tries to stay so strong for everyone else around him, but it’s clear that his own grief is consuming him too, making the Bellarke fan in me cry along with him.

All is not lost; however, as we get a twist at the end, revealing that the real Clarke is still alive.  She wakes up in a bed and is surrounded by drawings of her friends.  Clarke is holding on even in this small corner of Josephine’s mind, revealing that she is not giving up without a fight.  I personally can’t wait to see it.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 2 episode 6: “I Hope You Like Missionary!”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 2 episode 6 on AMC, I learned that you should never mess with Villanelle.  Even if she is not trying to kill you, she will make you pay…oh and never pick up a muffin anywhere near her…ever.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “I Hope You Like Missionary!” Niko confronts Eve about his conversation with Villanelle, which puts more than a strain on their marriage.  Meanwhile, Villanelle shows off her impressive collection of personalities and accents after Eve asks for her help, but ends up revealing some truth behind the real Villanelle.  My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 2 episode 6 are:

5

“Looks like we’re both pretty busy…”

After the intense conversation between Niko and Villanelle in last week’s episode, Niko confronts Eve and asks her, “What do you want from me?”  It’s a fair question especially since Eve has been all over the place lately.  It initially seems like Niko and Eve are all right for now, but Niko changes his mind in the morning and reminds Eve, “but you’re not alone, are you?”  Niko temporarily moves out of the house and stays with Gemma, who is the colleague from his job that clearly has more than a crush on Niko.

Eve stops by and insists on coming in for tea, but she loses it when she begins going through Gemma’s things.  Gemma asks Eve what she is doing and Eve asks her if she is scared, almost like she is trying to channel her own inner Villanelle.  It looks like this may be the end for Niko and Eve and I can’t say that I’m really surprised, but Eve has a lot to work through.  She really needs to discover what she wants for herself before she can move forward in any relationship.

4

“Who do you want?”

Eve and her team are trying to figure out a way to get close to Aaron Peel so we can learn more about his dealings with The Twelve, but Aaron doesn’t really have many close connections.  The one weak link seems to be his sister, Amber, who is currently in recovery from addiction.  Eve comes up with the idea to enlist Villanelle’s help once again…only her services will not include killing someone.

Villanelle is eager to work with Eve and greets her with a chipper tone when she says, “Hi Partner!”  Villanelle is ready to play the part and shows off her fabulous ideas for her next “character.”  I have to say that I absolutely adored the New York persona, Billie, and her accent was far from annoying.  I’m glad she went with that one and I would love to run into Villanelle in New York!

3

“The only thing that makes you interesting is me…don’t forget.”

Villanelle tries out her persona, Billie, at an AA meeting, but the group sees right through her lies, explaining that she is throwing a self-pity party for herself and their group is more about honesty.  Eve is initially frustrated by this because Villanelle’s story was inspired by Eve’s life and goes off on her as a result, but Villanelle gently reminds her that she doesn’t like her that much and she shouldn’t forget that she is the one making her life interesting right now.  Villanelle may have an obsession with Eve, but she likes to do things her way and perhaps she is always the one in charge, so Eve better remember that.  Even though Villanelle is “working” for Eve, she may have her own agenda.

2

“I don’t feel anything…”

When Villanelle returns to her next AA meeting, she is ready to reveal some truths about herself.  Villanelle explains:  “Most days I feel nothing…I don’t feel anything…it’s so boring.”  She further explains that she just tries to find ways to feel something.  This was a huge moment for Villanelle, as she finally lets her walls down, revealing that she is not an empty shell.  Villanelle has been trying to tap into her humanity for a while now and this moment allowed us to truly see that.

I thought Jodie Comer’s performance here was fantastic and I was very moved by her revelations.  Aaron’s sister, Amber, is impressed as well and it seems like these two are going to begin bonding according to plan, but Amber’s sponsor continues to get in the way.  Even though Villanelle shows off a softer side of herself, she is still an assassin and she pushes the sponsor in front of a moving vehicle in front of Eve.  Seriously, don’t get in her way.

1

“You’re a bully…there’s only one way to communicate with a bully.”

Villanelle is invited over to dinner at Amber’s house and she gets to interact with Aaron Peel.  She has Eve and Konstantin in her ear the whole time, which is distracting, as Villanelle decides to take the ear piece out and do things her way.  Billie’s cover story includes her having two degrees in philosophy, but it’s safe to say that Villanelle has not really done her homework.  Aaron begins to question her repeatedly, but Villanelle does not waver.

Villanelle faces Aaron and tells him that he is a bully and the only way to communicate with him is to…strike him in the face with the book he tossed on her lap.  Go Villanelle!  I have to say that I LOVED this moment, as I cannot stand bullies myself and Villanelle really put him in his place.  Even though she may have just blown the mission, Villanelle proves that she is her own boss and we later see her following a pair of young women who have piqued her interest.  I’m not really sure what she has in store for them, but perhaps she has found a new obsession?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like Eve’s hold over Villanelle may be fading.  How will she handle it though?  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” season 1 episode 6: “So you think the dead girl should live again?”

Greetings TV fans!  After watching Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 6, I remembered why I fell in love with Pretty Little Liars in the first place.  The twists keep coming and even when you think you may have figured out one part, there are that many more pieces of the puzzle left to discover.  The spin-off has now caught up to the original, as I found myself completely immersed in the mystery, wanting to know more and more!  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Lost and Found,” Alison tries to track down Taylor after she sneaks out of her house with Mona’s help.  Meanwhile, Caitlin’s fate is revealed and Ava and Dylan team up to try and find Mason’s phone.  My top 5 moments from Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 6 are:

5

“We’re here to support our friend…no matter what.”

In the beginning of the episode, we learn that Caitlin is in surgery and she ends up pulling through.  Phew!  The bond between her, Ava, and Dylan is that much stronger now, as they realize how important it is to stick together, especially when Dana Booker is lurking around and causing trouble.  Throughout the episode, Caitlin has to deal with her own fair share of drama with her mother, as she makes the decision to continue lying for her about the affair, but is this the right call?  Caitlin wants to do what is right for her family, but look where her secrets have gotten her so far.

4

“So you think the dead girl should live again?”

After doing some investigation work of her own, Alison realizes that Taylor must be hiding out at the cemetery and she is right.  Alison understands what Taylor is going through because she went through something very similar in her own past.  Alison explains that “hiding in the shadows makes you an easy target” and encourages Taylor to come forward.  Alison brings Taylor to her mother, Claire, but what will happen once everyone finds out that she faked her own death?  Taylor has been hiding from a threat, but has it gone away or will this only make everything worse for her?

3

“Play again?”

Mona keeps chatting with Bad Bishop, who claims that something came up when they were supposed to meet.  Mona continues to play with Bad Bishop, but when are we going to meet this player face-to-face?  Mona begins to uncover some interesting things as well in Taylor’s trailer, as she finds a secret drawer that leads her to Beacon Guard.  Mona realizes that the program can track where people are, but it also mentions someone named BH4.  So “who the hell is BH4?”  I’m not sure, but is Mona now in danger for discovering this?  Mona is an excellent player at any game, but she may have just opened the door to something very dangerous.  Perhaps the same person who was after Taylor may be after her next?  We’ll have to wait to find out.

2

“Sometimes the most beautiful things can come from the ugliest places.”

While Ava and Dylan try to track down Mason’s phone, Ava’s fashion show is going on, which is very important to her.  When Ava and Dylan return, they are covered in sewage, which doesn’t really make the best impression, especially since someone from Vogue is there to scout out Ava’s talent.  However, Ava turns it around and embraces it.  She walks out with confidence and talks about how she previously used to try to make everything perfect, but that our imperfections make us truly beautiful and that we can’t always be perfect and clean and that we shouldn’t have to be.  Ava’s speech makes a great impression and it looks like the fashion show was a success.  I thought this was a really great moment for Ava and so far, I am liking her the most out of the new characters on the show.

1

“Whatever it takes.”

Even though there was a lot of drama going on during the fashion show, the real drama took place when Ava and Dylan tried to track down Mason’s phone.  Ava ends up pulled into the sewer by something…or someone, bringing me back to the movie, It.  Someone dressed in a pig costume is behind it, but we don’t get to see the man or woman behind the mask.  Dylan helps Ava get out of there and they run right into Dana Booker.  It seems like Dana is popping up all over the place and she has just become their new suspect since Mason has been ruled out because of his alibi.  Is this too obvious still, however?

While Dana Booker is certainly a pest right now, I’m still leaning toward Caitlin’s boyfriend, Jeremy.  I just don’t trust him.  Either way, the mystery is not even close to being over, as the Beacon Guard program shows that dead Nolan is somehow in Mona’s apartment?  Who is actually there and is our main suspect the master mind behind Beacon Guard?   I’m not sure, but let’s take a look at some of our suspects so far:

Claire Hotchkiss:  She may not have killed her son, but I don’t trust her for one second.  She seems to be very powerful and could be behind Beacon Guard.

Andrew:  Caitlin’s boyfriend, who definitely has the skills to pull this off.  Is he working for Claire or does he have another motive?

Dana Booker:  Why is Dana so focused on bringing down Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan?  Is there something of her own that she is hiding as well?

Mason:  He may have been cleared with his alibi, but he’s not really innocent either.

Bad Bishop:  Who is Bad Bishop and could he or she link us to the real suspect?

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “SMILF” season 2 episode 6: “Free Money, Free Money, Free Money!”

Greetings TV viewers!  After watching Showtime’s SMILF season 2 episode 6, I realized that sometimes we just need one person to truly believe in us.  That person may not always be right, but just knowing that he or she is in your corner can make a world of difference.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Should Mothers Incur Loss Financially?” Bridgette tries to get a job, as the bills begin to pile up all around her.  Meanwhile, Tutu is in for a shocking discovery and Rafi and Nelson have an argument.  My top 5 moments from the SMILF season 2 episode 6 are:

5

“I want a pony.  Me too.”

In the beginning of the episode, we get to witness Bridgette’s long list of bills, as she desperately tries to find full time employment.  Bridgette even goes on an interview and seems to hit it off with the potential employer, but it doesn’t end up working out after she notices that Bridgette has a child.  Bridgette is prepared to sacrifice time with Larry to support him and even asks him what he would like to buy with their money in the future.  Larry responds with the only logical answer:  a pony!

4

“What are you, a welfare queen?”

After Bridgette applies for SNAP benefits, she is excited to try out her food stamps at the grocery store, only she learns that it does not apply to many of the purchases she actually needs.  Tutu is upset that Bridgette went this route and hilariously asks her if she is a welfare queen, which transitions us into a hilarious clip of Bridgette being the ultimate welfare queen in one of her daydreams.  I have to say that I loved the costume!  Bridgette then gets into an argument with Tutu after she refuses to give her the money to pay for the groceries, as Bridgette tells her that she is a terrible mother and storms out.

3

“I’m just dropping off the keys…”

Rafi drives Bridgette to Ally’s house to drop off the keys, but Bridgette discovers that no one is home and takes this opportunity to go on her own shopping spree in Ally’s house.  She takes groceries and a watch, among other things.  Bridgette realizes that it is wrong to steal from Ally, even though she probably won’t notice that any of the stuff is missing, but this scene was extremely comical to watch.

2

“I’ll wash your hair tonight if you want.”

We witness an argument between Rafi and Nelson, as Nelson begins to get frustrated since she is paying for all of their bills.  Nelson supports Rafi and believes in him, but she gets angry when he doesn’t wait for the plumber.  After Rafi confides in Bridgette, she gives him some really great advice and reminds him that he and Nelson are great together and that she is there for him every step of the way.  In a sweet moment, Rafi brings jugs of water home and offers to wash Nelson’s hair.  He then proposes to her and it looks like these two might have a happily ever after.  However, I am still leaning toward Rafi and Bridgette in the end.

“How about we make a bet?”

At the end of the episode, Bridgette and Tutu come together, as they both have a lot going on.  Tutu suggests that they make a bet and says that Bridgette will find her dream job within a year and will take any job she can get in the meantime.  Bridgette tells Tutu that she will find her own house to buy since Joe’s son is insisting on selling the house she has grown to love over the years.  Even though Bridgette and Tutu often argue, they love each other and this bet proves that they will continue to support one another as much as they can.  Stay tuned for more SMILF fun!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Passage” season 1 episode 6: “How About a Horror Movie?”

Happy Tuesday TV fans!  After watching Fox’s The Passage season 1 episode 6, Brad reminded Amy that “even when things get scary…stay calm.”  But that’s easier said than done when you have a dangerous vampire on the loose.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “I Want to Know What You Taste Like,” we learn more about Dr. Sykes’s past friendship with Shauna.  Meanwhile, Amy attempts to help track down Winston, Clark begins to show signs that he may not be completely on board with Project Noah, and Lila has a close call.  My top 5 moments from The Passage season 1 episode 6 are:

“Cause what you’re saying is insane.”

During the episode, Dr. Jonas Lear is reunited with his wife, Elizabeth.  Elizabeth’s mind has healed, but he comes clean with her about everything.  Elizabeth understands that she may turn within 48 hours, which is confusing and hard to deal with.  It also doesn’t help that Fanning continues to pay her visits in her mind, luring her toward the darkness.  Jonas is desperate to find a cure for Elizabeth and he hopes that Dr. Sykes will find a way to use Amy’s blood to counteract Fanning’s serum.  However, it’s not looking too good for Elizabeth.

“I’m sorry I got you into this.”

In last week’s episode, Lila was abducted and we now learn that Clark’s men were sent to retrieve her because she is a liability.  After Winston takes a bite out of her driver, Lila escapes, but she continues to find trouble on her way.  Lila comes across a woman bit by Winston and tries to help her, but is shocked when the woman already shows signs of being impacted by the virus.  Luckily, Lila makes it out of there OK and she is reunited with Brad and Amy.  Brad apologizes for getting Lila involved and in a sweet moment, he drapes his arm around her, revealing that there may be hope for these two to get back together.  There is definitely a vibe between them, but they have faced so much heartbreak together and their marriage may not be easily salvaged.  However, I am definitely shipping these two together and somehow, I want them to have a happy family again with Amy.  A girl can dream.

“I want everything that matters to you to be mine.”

We get a glimpse into Dr. Sykes’s past and learn that she had a friendship with Shauna before she turned, approximately 6 months ago, during Project Noah.  We learn that Dr. Sykes has never seen a horror movie other than I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, which is absolutely hilarious.  Shauna bonds with Dr. Sykes and they even share a pizza together while watching The Fly.  Clark warns Dr. Sykes about Shauna and we see the beginning of their own relationship, as Clark bravely offers to accompany Dr. Sykes while she watches, A Quiet Place, so that she can fill Shauna in on the details.  It seemed like this was a sweet friendship and Shauna trusted Dr. Sykes, but everything changed when she turned.  In present day, Shauna finally pays Dr. Sykes a visit in her mind and tells her that she wants to take everything that matters to her and when she has everything, she wants to know what she tastes like.  Shauna clearly feels betrayed and hurt by Dr. Sykes, but she uses this to her advantage, manipulating Dr. Sykes and trying to threaten her.  Shauna later says, “It’s kind of funny you don’t like horror movies since you’re living in one,” and then tells Dr. Sykes that she will see her soon, leaving us with another ominous threat.  It’s only a matter of time before the vampires figure out a way to escape, but it looks like the subjects are taking everything personally and they will not stop until they get their revenge.

“I’m gonna find your book.”

Amy is upset when she leaves behind the book her mother gave her, A Wrinkle in Time, and is angry at Brad when he doesn’t go back to retrieve it initially.  Amy’s abilities are continuing to surprise everyone, as we learn that she can tap into Winston’s mind and see what he sees.  She helps the agents find Winston, proving to be extremely useful, but Brad is worried about what they will later do to Amy.  We know that “weaponizing Amy” is a goal, but Brad is not about to abandon her.  At the end of the episode, Brad and Amy share another heartwarming moment.  Brad explains, “I know what it’s like to lose someone,” and tells Amy about his own daughter.  Brad and Amy bond over their grief and Brad promises that he will get her book back.

“I’m the author of this horror.”

Dr. Lear takes full responsibility for Project Noah and is ready to kill all the vampires, including his former best friend.  He asks Dr. Sykes if she is in and she agrees, as Jonas begins to expose Fanning and the other subjects to intense amounts of light to destroy them.  We discover that when Winston was killed, all of the vampires he turned died along with him.  The same thing begins to occur now, as both Amy and Elizabeth show signs that they are in intense pain, revealing that they are linked to Fanning.  Dr. Sykes tells Jonas that he has to shut it down, as they are not about to kill Amy or Elizabeth in the process.  Now that we know that they are all linked, how will they be able to stop Fanning?

Overall, I thought this was another solid episode.  The connected past between Dr. Sykes and Shauna was revealing.  We didn’t get to see Lacey in this episode, but something tells me that she will be back before we know it.  Amy’s abilities are continuing to grow, but I am interested to see how Project Noah attempts to exploit this.  It looks like we will get to see Carter in next week’s episode and we know that he shared a bond with Amy previously.  Will Fanning use this to his advantage to try and turn Amy?  Stay tuned!
