Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 3 episode 6: “End of Game”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 3 episode 6, I learned that even when you get everything you think you want, sometimes it’s not enough.

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

In last night’s episode, “End of Game,” Villanelle gets promoted, but she starts to realize that she may be destined for a new path. Meanwhile, Eve attempts to get justice for Niko, which leads to an intense game of bowling.

My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 3 episode 6 are:

5

“Piss off forever.”

Surprise! Niko is actually alive after being brutally stabbed by a pitchfork. In the beginning of the episode, Eve visits him in the hospital. Niko is on a ventilator and can’t speak yet, but he still gets his message across to Eve.

Eve is still determined to find out who is behind this and doesn’t think that Villanelle did it, even though the evidence is pointing in her direction.

I have to hand it to Eve. She sees through it all, but has she met her match with Dasha?

4

“To Villanelle, the Keeper!”

Villanelle meets Elena, who informs her that she has been promoted to Keeper, which is exactly what Villanelle wanted. Only she quickly discovers that the new job title is pretty much the same thing with better perks.

Villanelle is disappointed and starts to truly wonder about what more she wants. It’s clear that Villanelle’s family visit had a major impact on her, but maybe she’s finally ready to start over fresh.

3

“I love hockey!”

There’s always one fan in the stands who is just overly loud and obnoxious and Villanelle decides to embrace her new love for sports by crashing Konstantin’s daughter’s hockey game. Villanelle hilariously explains that you can’t watch sports without a hot dog, but Konstantin gets the conversation back on track and tells Villanelle that she was not supposed to kill her mother.

Konstantin wanted Villanelle to put her past behind her, but it looks like he’s ready to run away far from The Twelve…to Cuba?

Irina and Villanelle have a nice little chat about it, but can Villanelle really leave Eve behind?

2

“You can’t beat us.”

After getting some intel on Dasha from Carolyn, Eve is determined to track her down to get some answers. Carolyn warns Eve that Dasha is extremely dangerous, but there’s no stopping Eve when her mind is made up.

After taking out some of her frustration on a vending machine, Eve decides to crash Dasha’s bowling game and actually shows off some impressive skills. Go Eve!

Dasha reminds Eve that she cannot win at this game, suggesting that The Twelve will always come out on top, but we’ll have to see how this plays out.

1

“I don’t want to do this anymore.”

Villanelle heads off to execute her latest kill and poses as a hair stylist with lots of flair. I’m not sure that I would want Villanelle behind me with a pair of scissors, but things get a bit sloppy when her target manages to stab her before she can kill him.

Villanelle is always so precise and mechanical with her kills. It’s really more of an art form for her, which shows that she is clearly shaken up by everything. At the end of the episode, Villanelle reveals that she doesn’t want to do this anymore, but I’m not sure that The Twelve will accept no as an answer.

Meanwhile, we may have a new female assassin in town. Konstantin’s daughter, Irina, may have learned a thing or two from Villanelle after all and decides to run over her mother’s new overly nice boyfriend in front of him. Irina has been trying to get her father’s attention for a while and she recognizes that he cares for Villanelle, so is this a cry for attention or does she really have the killer instinct?

We also get a conversation between Carolyn and Konstantin where Kenny supposedly asked him if he was his father. We don’t get a concrete answer on this, but is this the reason he was killed or is there more to the story?

We have only two episodes left this season! Will we get another meet up between Villaneve or are they destined to go their separate ways? 

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 10 episode 6: “I’m Glad I Didn’t Sell You”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 10 episode 6, Frank reminded us that “there’s no room for sentiment in business,” but perhaps one should change the rules when it comes to your own children.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not watched the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “Adios Gringos,” Frank and Liam work together to obtain the highest bid for Ingrid’s baby.  Meanwhile, Tami and Lip continue to argue, V forgets the electric slide, and Carl leads Anne’s family to victory.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 10 episode 6 are:

5

“What are you doing here?”

Luckily, Ian and Mickey don’t have to be separated for too long, as Mickey gets released from prison as well.  Mickey has Larry as his parole officer and he initially jumps off his bus thinking he is being followed, which was beyond hilarious.  Later on, we get a nice reunion between Ian and Mickey.

Meanwhile, Ian tries to help a pregnant woman in need of medical help, which goes against the rules of his insurance scam job.  His parole officer is not too pleased and almost offers Ian’s privates up as a snack for her dog, Biscuit.  Ian makes it out of there OK, but will he really be able to stay on the sidelines without helping people in need?

4

“Apparently I’ve raised a great kid.”

Deb is not giving up without getting her check, but she doesn’t want to hand Franny over to Peppa without a plan.  Debbie asks Franny to be bad, but Franny tries to tell her mother that she is a good girl.

Debbie realizes that she will need to find a stand-in for Franny to play the part and meets two sisters, Bella and Stella, who need Foster parents.  Stella blackmails Debbie, but she goes for it, realizing that she is desperate.  Peppa falls for it and the “new Franny” begins to wreak havoc and even sets a fire, so it looks like Deb’s plan is working like a charm.

3

“I’m glad I didn’t sell you.  You’re fun.”

Frank teams up with Liam in this episode to find the highest bidder for Ingrid’s baby, but Frank actually begins to bond with both Liam and his grandson.  Liam has to take over, reminding Frank about his own business motto, but it looks like they are both out of luck when one of the couples actually kidnaps the baby.

I’m not sure if we will circle back to this plot or not, but hopefully the baby is all right!  Either way, I enjoyed the screen time for Frank and Liam and perhaps we will get to see more business schemes from them in the future, but maybe they should stick to goods rather than people.

2

“I almost passed my battle strategy class.”

Well, I guess that makes Carl an expert on war, as he tries to help Anne’s family when some cowboy competitors show up to steal their tamales.  I almost felt like we were in the wild wild west at one point, but Carl does his best to motivate everyone, even though his plan falls through.

In the end, they are able to make some serious cash serving meatless tamales in a boujee part of town, but things are also heating up between Carl and Anne, as they finally kiss while making tamales.  It’s about time!

1

“I think we’re together.”

Tami continues to struggle with motherhood, but she also gets extremely jealous of Lip and Sarah and decides to even the score.  Tami has a meltdown and tells Lip that she feels like she can’t breathe in their house, which inspires him to get an RV for them in the backyard.

At least it’s a start and these two finally admit that they are together, so we’ll have to see how this relationship goes, but baby Freddy is adorable so hopefully this will give him a calmer environment!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 6: “I Learned From The Best”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 6, we learned that even if we don’t make the rules, that doesn’t mean that we should give up.  What we do matters, but sometimes we have to see it for ourselves to be convinced.  Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Golden Time,” an old friend crosses paths with Sam and Dean.  Meanwhile, Castiel attempts a case of his own, realizing that perhaps he is needed after all.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 6 are:

5

“I know how it ends…”

In the beginning of the episode, Sam crosses paths with Eileen.  Remember her?  Well, Eileen is now a ghost and she escaped from hell, but she is now disappointed to find out that she will not be able to get into heaven either, as the Winchesters share what they learned from Kevin.

Sam decides to try and help Eileen by obtaining one of Rowena’s crystals, hoping that he can do something for her soul, but Dean wants to sit this one out for now.

I always felt a vibe between Sam and Eileen in previous episodes, so I’m wondering if there may be a chance for them now…

4

“You miss her.”

Rowena kept a secret stash for her powerful spells and documents, as Sam begins to go through some of her journals.  Eileen recognizes that Sam really misses Rowena and it’s clear that he is still feeling guilty about killing her, even though he knows it had to be done.

Sam comes across a spell that Rowena had been working on for their mother to bring her back to life and now suddenly realizes that perhaps he can finish it and help Eileen.

I love that we are still feeling Rowena’s presence even though she is gone.  Sam is the only living person who can apparently walk into her place unharmed and it seems like she has left everything for him to find, knowing that he would be able to continue her work.

3

“I learned from the best!”

Witches are after Rowena’s secret stash as well and the head witch plans on using Rowena’s spell to bring back her daughter.  Magic like this can only be used once, so Sam is not about to miss his chance to help someone he loves again.

After Dean shows up with perfect timing to help, it looks like Sam may be out of luck, but he ends up showing off how he learned from Rowena, taking down his enemy with a spell  of his own.  Go Sam!  Rowena would be so proud!

2

“It’s time for me to get back in the game.”

We finally catch up with Castiel in this episode and learn that he is on…vacation!  Well, at least he’s trying to enjoy some time relaxing and fishing, but Castiel finds himself caught up with his very own case after a boy goes missing.

Castiel agrees to help a worried mother and runs into a Djinn, taking him out, and reminding him that nothing will be able to protect him from Cass.  I was absolutely loving bad-ass Castiel in this moment!

Castiel heals the boy and reunites him with his mother, now realizing that perhaps it is finally time for him to get back in the game.  We need you Cass!

1

“Because we’re the guys who break the rules.”

Sam is able to use the spell to bring Eileen back to life, so I think it’s safe to say that perhaps romance isn’t off the table for these two.  Either way, this was a heartwarming moment and I think Sam really needed to do this to remind him that their actions do matter.

Dean is now taking his turn at feeling defeated, but Sam reminds him that he needs him and that they will find a way to beat Chuck/God.

Perhaps we need everyone back together again in order to make some real progress here, but I’m hoping that Sam and Dean can put their angst aside in order to continue the good fight.

Stay tuned SPN family!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Purge” season 2 episode 6: “Happy Holidays”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the USA network’s The Purge season 2 episode 6 last night, we finally got to see the man behind the voice of The Bobby Sheridan Show, as he reminded us that “You’re nobody in America unless someone wants to Purge you.”  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “Happy Holidays,” Esme is on the run from the NFFA, which forces her to turn to an unlikely source for help.  Meanwhile, The Campus Killer is certainly making a name for himself, but things get tricky when he returns home for break, and Marcus and Michelle invite Sam over for a chat.

My top 5 moments from The Purge season 2 episode 6 are:

5

“Either my guys join or I turn you in.”

Ryan tries to keep things moving for the plan, but things are getting much more complicated now that his former captain has joined in.  The rest of the group does not trust her and rightfully so and it’s likely that she will turn the tables on Ryan and his group in the end.

Does Ryan have another plan up his sleeve?

We’ll have to find out, but I can’t wait to see what happens once all of the players are in place.

4

“She has committed an act of treason.”

After following up on some leads, Esme’s discoveries have been noticed by her supervisor, who reports that this is now a “Priority 1 Manhunt.”  The NFFA shows off just how powerful they are, using every single form of technology against Esme to try and track her down.

Luckily, our girl is aware of some of the blind spots, which works to her advantage, but this is only a temporary solution.

It also looks like the girl she was training at the NFFA is on her side, as she changes several camera views to try and help Esme.  At this point, Esme needs all the help she can get because I’m not sure that one can truly outrun the NFFA.

I’m still rooting for her anyway!

3

“So messed up…”

Yeah, you can say that again Ben, although you are proving to be quite the good liar under pressure.  After being questioned about Andy’s death, Ben reveals that he was just nervous because he was smoking weed, which apparently is a class Y offense.

Ben returns home during school break with his girlfriend and it’s clear that the urge to Purge has not gone away just yet, as his older brother continues to push his buttons.

The Campus Killer is certainly making a name for himself,  but now that Ben’s girlfriend has found his bloody God Purge mask, it looks like Ben is about to be exposed.

Will Ben really try and kill his girlfriend to keep this secret?  We’ll have to wait and see, but she better watch her back for sure!

2

“I need your help.”

I had a feeling that Esme was going to turn to Ryan for help and she does in this episode.  Ryan is skeptical at first, but decides to help hide Esme, realizing that they are ultimately both good people and want the same thing.

Ryan asks Esme if she thinks she can really take down the NFFA and perhaps she can if she gets some support here, but it’s not going to be easy.

Esme is welcomed in as the newest member of the team, so perhaps she can also help Ryan deal with his Captain problem…

1

“I wasn’t the only one.”

Marcus is still in shock over Michelle’s confession, but he is not about to let things go, as he decides to text Sam from Michelle’s phone, asking him over for a chat.  Only Sam shows up with his wife, April, to make things even more awkward.

April apparently knows about the affair, but says she had no idea that Sam tried to Purge Marcus.  At first, Sam says he didn’t do it and even tries to put the blame on Michelle, but eventually has a change of heart when Marcus holds his face above the stove burner.

Sam takes down his part of the contract, but we get another twist and learn that he wasn’t the only one and that apparently the whole neighborhood wanted to Purge Marcus.

So, what did Marcus do to piss everyone off?  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 6: “No more Secrets, No more Lies”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 6, I learned that it is possible to save a town one kid at a time, but what happens when you decide to make a deal with the devil himself?  Will it be worth it in the end?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Sixty-Three:  Hereditary,” Cheryl and Toni continue to be tormented by a “demon doll.”  Meanwhile, the Lodge family is reunited, Jughead uncovers a secret, and Betty visits an old enemy to get some answers about Charles.  My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 6 are:

5

“Nothing’s that simple with you.”

Very true, Archie, so perhaps you should heed your own advice?  During the episode, Dodger continues to threaten Archie and the kids, which is making things more than difficult for him.  Hiram Lodge pays Archie a visit and actually has some genuine words about his father, reminding him that he would be proud of him.

I thought this was a nice gesture from Hiram, but you can never truly trust the devil. After shots are fired at Archie’s home, endangering his mother, Archie visits Hiram and asks him for his help. Hiram claims that he can’t help him, but Archie later discovers Dodger rolled up in a bloody carpet outside of the community center.

Dodger’s fate certainly doesn’t look too good here, but I’m more concerned about Archie making a deal with the devil.  I understand that he was trying to protect his mom, but being in Hiram’s debt is never a good thing…oh Archiekins!

4

“I’m not giving an inch!”

Hiram is also stirring up trouble with his own family, as he claims that he wants to start a Rum business with Hermosa’s help.  Veronica is not exactly pleased and tells him to leave.  She offers her mother a job as a hostess, but Hermione has a change of heart when her husband seduces her.

Hermione is no stranger to past mistakes, but she clearly hasn’t learned her lesson either.  Temptation is a tricky thing, but it looks like Veronica is the only Lodge standing her ground here.

Go V!

3

“Damn you demon doll!”

Cheryl and Toni continue to be tormented by the creepy Julian doll, which seems to be wreaking havoc in Cheryl’s home.  This is not the only thing she has to worry about; however, as her creepy Aunt Cricket and Uncle Bedford show up, asking Cheryl to consider selling the business and house.

Toni reminds Cheryl that this might be their chance to get a fresh start and she’s right, but Cheryl doesn’t want to hear anything else once her aunt and uncle want to go down to the chapel, anxious to protect Jason.

Later on, Uncle Bedford discovers Jason’s body and threatens to have her committed so that they can take over the business, but Cheryl is not about to go out quietly.  After he attacks Cheryl, Toni steps in once again to save her beloved and knocks Uncle Bedford out.

Did Toni just kill Uncle Bedford?  I’m not sure, but it looks like Choni may be in for some more trouble.  Perhaps Nana Rose can help out here…

2

“The text doesn’t lie.”

After experiencing some writer’s block, Jughead uncovers that his grandfather actually wrote the first Baxter mystery book and Mr. DuPont took credit for it.  Mr. DuPont is not pleased with these accusations and threatens Jughead quite a bit.

Jughead doesn’t stay quiet; however, and asks Mr. Chipping for help, who seems more than willing to set the record straight.

During a seminar, Mr. Chipping tells Jughead that he’s sorry he wasn’t able to help him and jumps out the window.  As if this wasn’t strange enough, Jughead’s classmates just sit there staring like nothing is wrong.

What the hell is going on at Stonewall Prep?

Is Mr. Chipping dead?

Is Mr. DuPont Jughead’s potential killer?

I’m not sure, but he is certainly not going to make things easy for Jughead, especially now that he will be taking over the class.  It looks like Jughead may need some backup.  Don’t forget to kiss your wonderful girlfriend, Betty!  You need her!

1

“Why would I lie at this point?”

Betty continues to try and get some answers about Charles and even goes to visit an old enemy…Chic.  Chic is in jail and is actually pretty forthcoming with Betty, telling her all about Charles’s darkness and how he apparently stabbed someone to death with scissors while on Jingle Jangle.

Betty confronts Charles and has him take a polygraph test, learning that he has been hiding that he is an addict.  After Chic threatens to incriminate Alice by revealing where the body of the Shady Man is, Charles helps FP and says that everything is OK now.

Charles has earned Betty’s trust, but we then see him visiting Chic at the end of the episode.  Charles and Chic seem to be romantically involved and it looks like Chic was working under Charles’s instruction here, but let’s hope that Betty can uncover the truth before it’s too late.

Now that we know that Charles absolutely has something to hide, what does he want from his new family?

Even though suspects are emerging in every episode in Jughead’s future potential murder, we can’t ignore the darkness in Charles.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” season 10 episode 6: “I’m All In”

Happy Monday TV fans!  During AMC’s The Walking Dead season 10 episode 6, Carol reminded Daryl that they seem to “keep paying no matter what side of the line we’re on.”  It looks like both Carol and Negan have decided to take things to the next level and it’s about time!  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.

In last night’s episode, “Bonds,” Carol and Daryl go out on a mission to “watch, learn, and leave,” but Carol has a plan of her own.  Meanwhile, Negan is tested by Beta, Eugene gets a mysterious call over the radio, and a serious illness starts to spread in Alexandria.

My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 10 episode 6 are:

5

“It’s not like that…”

I absolutely love the moments between Carol and Daryl and Carol is not afraid to ask Daryl about what is going on with Connie.  Daryl claims that it’s not like that and Carol asks him why not, explaining that Daryl doesn’t have to be alone anymore.

Even though I have always shipped Caryl together, I recognize that their friendship is something even greater than a chance at romance and I actually really like the moments between Daryl and Connie.  I’m glad that Carol said something here because maybe Daryl needs a push in the right direction!

4

“This is only going to get worse if we’re not ahead of it.”

Everyone seems to be getting really sick in Alexandria, which leads to a “field trip to the infirmary.”  Rosita does not seem to be doing too well and there is definitely a lot of pressure on Siddiq and Dante to figure this all out, but I’m starting to wonder what caused them all to get sick in the first place?

Is this just a really bad bug or is something else causing everyone to get sick here?

This is also leading to some more panic moments for Siddiq and it looks like we might get to fully understand what is happening with him in next week’s episode.

Did Siddiq kill for Alpha?  I can’t wait to find out, but he needs to stop having these episodes when he is holding poor baby Coco!

3

“Just you and me.”

Is Eugene finally going to get his chance at romance or did he just open the channel to an even greater threat?

I’m not sure, but it’s clear that Eugene and this mysterious woman are forming some kind of connection already.  The woman seems to appreciate Eugene’s quirkiness and we learn that she is from Pennsylvania, but we really don’t know anything else about her.

The woman is worried that Eugene could be a threat, but he tries to convince her that it is safe to talk to him.  She asks him to keep this between the two of them, which was another red flag for me.

Eugene better watch his back because I’m not sure that we can trust who is on the other line just yet…

2

“Did you plan this?”

After Daryl decides to tag along with Carol on her mission, he quickly discovers that she is not really looking for Negan and is trying to find Alpha’s horde instead.  Daryl and Carol actually have some luck here, but Daryl worries that their actions will have consequences.

Carol reminds him that they have already lost so much and she’s absolutely right, but you have to wonder if Carol is really thinking everything through or if her quest for revenge is blocking out some of her better judgment?

Daryl and Carol end up in a very dangerous situation, but Carol ends up taking back a Whisperer prisoner.  Daryl asks her if this was her plan all along, but it’s clear that Carol has just made a big move here and we’ll  have to see if it was the right call.

1

“I ain’t going anywhere!”

Even though I adored the moments between Carol and Daryl, once again, Negan stole the show for me.  His interactions with “Beta with benefits” were beyond hilarious.  Beta warns Alpha that Negan cannot be trusted and reminds her that he is too loud.

Negan claims that he can spill all of the secrets he has collected from their enemy, which would definitely come in handy, but it seems like Beta is more threatened by Negan than Alpha is.

After being tested and surrounded by walkers, Negan survives and I can’t say that I’m really surprised.  The big bad wolf is not going anywhere and he does take a knee to pledge himself to Alpha, claiming that he is all in. 

I still think this is one hell of a long con and I feel like Negan and Carol are about to turn the tables on The Whisperers without them even realizing it, but you never know what’s up Negan’s sleeve.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Affair” season 5 episode 6: “I Think He Killed Her”

Happy Sunday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s The Affair season 5 episode 6, I learned that there can be an ongoing game of tug of war between resilience and trauma.  Is it possible to channel trauma to become even stronger or are we destined to be broken, repeating the fate of our parents?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In tonight’s episode, “506,” Joanie meets a man named EJ, who has been studying the Lockhart family history for quite some time.  As Joanie uncovers new information behind her mother’s suicide, she begins to realize that perhaps there was more to it.  My top 5 moments from The Affair season 5 episode 6 are:

5

“If you touch me, I’ll stab you.”

Part one of the episode follows Joanie and I was really happy that part one lasted for the entire episode, as Joanie has deserved some screen time for a while now.  We catch up with Joanie in the cemetery and she meets a stranger named EJ.  After being momentarily creeped out by his staring, EJ offers to give Joanie a ride and she hesitantly accepts.

EJ studies family histories and is very interested in the Lockhart family tree, explaining that he has a theory on trauma running in families.  When he finds out who Joanie is, he is starstruck for sure, but Joanie doesn’t seem to be too interested in what he has to say just yet.  That is, until she finds out that she is taking samples at the place where her mother died.

“There’s no way she could have drowned herself in water that shallow.”

After parting ways with EJ temporarily after viewing some old police records, EJ calls her and says he has something to show her.  The two watch a breathtaking super moon in the sky, which ends up triggering something within Joanie.  Joanie brings up the data on the super moon from the night Alison drowned and realizes that the water where she drowned was extremely shallow, like a bathtub.

This brings up some questions about her death, but Joanie doesn’t seem quite ready to process it, as she decides to sleep with EJ, trying to turn everything off.  EJ questions her about her fetish for being choked and becomes a little bit too talkative, which prevents Joanie from truly losing herself…but perhaps she needed this to actually start dealing with the emotions swirling around inside of her.

“Are you sure it was suicide?”

Joanie returns home the next day, but seems extremely irritable and distracted.  Joanie’s mom comes to visit and we learn that she is referring to…Luisa!  Remember her?  Even though I was never a fan of Cole and Luisa’s relationship, I was happy to discover that Luisa remained in Joanie’s life even after she and Cole split up because Joanie needed a lot of support.

Luisa tells Joanie that Cole was the most determined person she ever met and that Joanie reminds her of him in so many ways.  Joanie proceeds to tell Luisa that she feels like Alison ruined everything, but it’s clear that she is unable to process the grief that is taking over right now.

“He could do anything.”

After having a meltdown over her oxygen garden failure, Joanie panics and tells her husband, Paul, that she has been cheating on him for years.  Paul tells her to get out and Joanie ends up on EJ’s doorstep.  She opens up to EJ about her father and we learn that Cole died of a heart attack at age 72.

Joanie blames herself because she thinks that if her father was not alone, he would still be alive.  EJ tries to get Joanie to talk about her father, recognizing that she is not allowing herself to feel anything and she tells him that Cole could do anything, bringing up some touching and heartwarming memories.

“I don’t know who the hell Benjamin Cruz is…”

EJ shows Joanie Cole’s box of letters, which he rescued from the trash, and shows Joanie some newspaper clippings about Benjamin Cruz.  Joanie initially doesn’t recognize him and I was laughing at EJ’s theory about him being Cole’s lover, but Joanie has a memory about the day she met Ben Cruz, as we see a flashback accompanied with Alison’s voice over.  Joanie wakes up suddenly and tells EJ that she remembers that Ben Cruz was her mother’s boyfriend and says, “I think he killed her,” as all of the pieces start to come together now.

Will Joanie be able to uncover the truth?  I can’t wait to find out!  I’ve been waiting for this episode since the new season started and I thought that it was brilliantly done, giving us the chance to truly understand Joanie and allowing Alison and Cole’s memory to still be present and relevant.  Joanie’s coming for you, Ben!  Look out!

Justice for Alison Bailey!
