Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 2 episode 7: “Wide Awake”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 2 episode 7 on AMC, I found myself singing along with Villanelle to Blondie’s “One Way or Another.” I mean, if you really think about it, she will find a way to get you.  Watch out, Eve!  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Wide Awake,” Villanelle secures her date with Aaron Peel, which leads to an interesting trip to Rome.  Meanwhile, Eve has an important talk with Martin and begins to realize that her obsession is causing her to do things she wouldn’t normally do and Niko finds himself in a very dangerous situation.  My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 2 episode 7 are:

5

“I feel things when I’m with you…”

In the beginning of the episode, Eve stops by Villanelle’s place and asks her if she really knows anything about being truthful.  Villanelle tells her that she really doesn’t know, but explains that she does feel something when she is with Eve.  The two women from the end of last week’s episode both make their way out of Villanelle’s bedroom, which makes Eve slightly uneasy.  Villanelle reminds her not to be jealous, but it’s clear that Eve is getting way too close here and she needs to be careful.  Even though Villanelle has these feelings for her, she’s still a dangerous assassin who likes to do things her way.

4

“Do you love Eve?”

While Niko and Gemma are putting some of his things in storage, they get a surprise visit from Villanelle.  Villanelle tells Niko, “You always look annoyed to see me,” but takes it upon herself to keep his snow globe and of course she wants the recipe to his Shepherd’s Pie because Eve loves it.  “Worcestershire sauce…yes!”  Who knew Worcestershire sauce could be so exciting?  Even when tensions are high, Villanelle is still able to break the ice with her offbeat humor.  It’s just one of the many reasons why I adore Villanelle and root for her even though she is a killer.

Villanelle also hilariously points out how annoying Gemma is, but is ready to cut to the chase.  She directly asks Niko if he loves Eve and he says he does.  Only honesty is not always the best policy when it comes to Villanelle, as she tells him that she was “so close to letting him go.”  Villanelle knows that Eve will never forgive her if she hurts Niko, but things don’t look so good for Gemma.  Sorry Gemma!  At the end of the episode, Niko wakes up in the storage unit and discovers Gemma’s lifeless body wrapped in plastic.  We know that Villanelle will do anything to keep Eve to herself, but is Niko prepared to fight for his wife?  I can’t wait to find out!

3

“So that’s Peel’s weapon.”

Even after throwing a book at Aaron’s face, Villanelle still manages to secure a date with Aaron as “Billie.”  I mean, she is quite charming after all.  Aaron invites Villanelle to Rome, but she explains that she will not sleep with him, which doesn’t seem to bother him at all.  So what is Aaron interested in?  It seems like he is obsessed with maintaining control and he enjoys watching Villanelle eat and dress, but only if it is approved by him.  Aaron has almost an entire wardrobe of gorgeous clothes waiting for her in her room, but he watches her look at them on camera like a creepy stalker.

After Eve manages to slip Villanelle her earpiece, it seems like we are in business, as Villanelle sits in on Aaron’s business dinner.  We learn that his weapon is essentially information, but the kind of information that can be extremely dangerous, as you can type in the name of any person and learn everything about them…including their deepest and darkest secrets. 

2

“You’re the only person in the world I know nothing about…”

After the dinner, Aaron tells Villanelle that he tried to look up information on “Billie” and found nothing, which instantly puts Eve in panic mode.  However, Villanelle remains calm, as she and Aaron find common ground in the fact that they are both essentially a “void.”  Aaron has no interest in truly connecting with others, but Villanelle explains that she does like trying to connect.  She wants to touch and feel, which creates an interesting dynamic between these two.  Even though this is an undercover job for Villanelle, I think it has revealed a lot about her own character, as she begins to explore parts of herself that she has never really tapped into before.

1

“I feel wide awake…”

During the episode, Eve has a talk with Martin and he asks her, “How much of the day do you spend thinking of her?”  Eve reveals that she thinks of Villanelle most of the day, but yet they really don’t have a relationship.  Eve recognizes that she is acting different and she feels unsafe, but somehow wide awake, as if this is her true identity.  Martin tells her that his recommendation for her to be taken off this mission was ignored, but he is telling Eve now for her own safety.  Only it doesn’t seem like she is ready to listen just yet, even though she recognizes how much she is changing.

After Villanelle goes to bed, she keeps the earpiece in and continues talking to Eve, sparking up a heated conversation that leads to Eve sleeping with Hugo.  Eve essentially uses Hugo here, but ends up connecting with Villanelle through this act, as even Hugo recognizes this and tells her, “Thanks for the threesome.”  Eve is playing a dangerous game here and she is allowing her desires to take complete control, throwing reason out the window.  Will she be able to get a hold of herself or is she too far gone, slipping away into Villanelle’s web of dangerous seduction?  Will Villaneve fans finally get the chance to see these two act on their feelings?  Stay tuned for the season finale next week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” season 1 episode 7: “She’s not an A”

Greetings TV fans!  After watching Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 7, I learned that “you can’t will someone to be trustworthy,” but “if you’re honest, there are no wrong answers” when it comes to who you are.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In Wednesday night’s episode, “Dead Week,” Mona realizes that she is now a major player in the game, but is she ready to play?  Meanwhile, Alison comes clean with the group about Taylor and tries to get through to her.  My top 5 moments from Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 7 are:

5

“I wanted you to hear it from me first.”

In the beginning of the episode, Alison lets the group know that Taylor is really alive.  She knows that this news is about to be broadcasted all over the place and she thinks it is important to share it with Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan first.  She explains that Nolan knew and that he was trying to keep them safe.  We know that Taylor was running away from someone who was threatening her, so is the same person now threatening Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but the cat is finally out of the bag and Taylor is now out in the open.  But can she truly be trusted?

4

“He only hates you because he loves you.”

Dylan continues to try and win back Andrew’s affection in this episode, but Andrew has made it clear that he needs some time after learning about Dylan’s secret past with Nolan.  Andrew finally comes around at the end of the episode and the two of them have a sweet moment together, as they slow dance.  It looks like the two of them are home now, but they make it clear that there will be no more secrets between them, but we know that the drama is nowhere near over.  Will Andrew be able to fully support Dylan?

3

“I know who this is!”

So I’ve been wondering who Bad Bishop is for quite some time and our girl Mona finally figures it out after Bad Bishop says that “chess is the art of math.”  Mona remembers that Mason said something similar about playing piano during their counseling session and she confronts him.  Mason admits to being Bad Bishop and asks what comes next and Mona says, “Start a new game,” as their conversation is interrupted when Nolan’s identification card is used somewhere, luring Mona away.  Now that we know that Mason is Bad Bishop, what does this mean for Mona?  Is this a new potential romance for her or a good friend?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like Mason has been cleared of any involvement in Nolan’s murder, but let’s hope that he has good intentions for Mona.

2

“So reinvent yourself and follow through.”

I love the growing friendship between Alison and Mona on this spin-off and they have another truly significant moment together.  Alison has been feeling torn over Taylor, recognizing the connection here.  She has been trying to balance her life and make time for her family while also making a difference in the lives of her students, but she is feeling slightly defeated.  Mona gives her a pep talk and tells her to follow through on starting over so that Alison can truly get her fresh start.  I think that Mona and Alison have a great dynamic and they make a terrific tag team.  Let’s just hope they can bring this new “A” down before it’s too late!

1

“Let’s take this bitch down.”

After Mona gets an interesting set of cupcakes featuring a creepy message asking:  “Can we be pals?” she realizes that she has just become a major player in the new A’s game.  Mona realizes that whoever broke into her apartment and left the cupcakes has Nolan’s ID card and she is determined to get to the bottom of this.  After tracking the ID card to Dana Booker, Mona realizes that she is going to need someone on the inside as well and she tells Alison, “I refuse to be a doll.”  Mona is ready to take on whoever she needs to and I think Dana Booker better watch her back.  She may be clever, but there is no one like our girl, Mona.  Stay tuned!

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

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

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

5

“Do you like your hair?  No.”

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

4

“Larry we gotta go get some weed.”

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

3

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

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

2

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

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

1

“You’re my girl.”

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

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

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Passage” season 1 episode 7: “You Are More Powerful Than You Realize”

Happy Tuesday TV fans!  After watching Fox’s The Passage season 1 episode 7, we learned that “there’s some scary stuff coming,” but when will it arrive?  Will Amy bring it forth or will her humanity help her see the light?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “You Are Like the Sun,” we learn more about Brad and Lila’s past and find out how they lost their daughter, Eva.  Meanwhile, Carter attempts to connect with Amy, Jonas refuses to give up on Elizabeth, and Shauna confronts Fanning.  My top 5 moments from The Passage season 1 episode 7 are:

5

“I’m gonna find them.”

During the episode, Clark makes the decision to go after Brad and Lila to help them.  Brad and Lila are separated from Amy, which is definitely not a good sign, as the government is looking to eliminate any possible threats to Project Noah.  Clark has previously been an obedient soldier, but he now realizes that Project Noah is a horror show and he is looking to finally do the right thing.  We learn that this is not the first time that Clark has saved Brad after learning more about Brad’s past, but it looks like Clark is ready to join the good fight.  Welcome to the team!

4

“We’re waiting on you.”

Fanning has been promising for quite some time that bad things are coming, but it seems like a lot of talking so far.  Even Shauna confronts Fanning within his mind, realizing that Fanning has become too preoccupied with Elizabeth joining them.  Shauna reminds him that Elizabeth may not choose him and also talks about having a “humanity hangover,” admitting that she does care about Clark, which is important.  Previously, I got the impression that Shauna was merely manipulating Clark, but now it seems like her humanity is still present, as her feelings for him are real.  We know that there is a connection between Shauna and Clark, but what will happen when the glass wall between them shatters?  Will Shauna choose darkness or humanity?  We’ll have to wait and see.

3

“I choose you.”

Elizabeth’s condition continues to get worse, but Jonas does not want to give up on his wife, which is heartbreaking to see.  Dr. Sykes does all she can to help, but tries to remind Jonas that Elizabeth has the same symptoms as the other subjects, which is not a good sign.  Fanning continues to try and lure Elizabeth over to the darkness, tempting her with life over death, but ultimately Elizabeth chooses Jonas.  Elizabeth tells Jonas to shut off the machines, accepting her fate.  Jonas doesn’t want to say goodbye, but he respects his wife’s wishes and tells her he loves her over and over again, which brought tears to my eyes.  While I didn’t think that Elizabeth would make it, I’m happy that she made the decision to stay away from Fanning’s offer, but this will only fuel Jonas that much more.  Jonas is ready to eliminate Fanning, but what will happen when these two finally face off?  I personally can’t wait to see it.

2

“You are more powerful than you realize.”

While Amy worries about Brad’s fate, she receives a mental visit from her buddy, Carter.  She recognizes that Carter has changed; reminding us that Amy is very capable of seeing things as they are, even though she is just a child.  Rather than tempting Amy with darkness, Carter appears to be warning her and tells her that he is trying to be better, but “hunger makes you do weird things.”  Can Carter be trusted here?  Initially, I thought so, but it looks like this may have been a different strategy, as Carter tells Amy that she can go anywhere.  Amy confides in Carter about her guilt over her mother’s death and she desperately wants to see her again.  Amy’s mind projects herself into her old apartment with her mother, as she embraces her and tells her how much she loves her, which is a touching moment.  However, the happiness is interrupted when Amy hears a knock at the door and immediately recognizes Fanning on the other side.  Amy used her abilities to do something she truly desired, but does that mean that she has now invited the darkness in as well?

1

“Start over.  It is possible.”

We get an important glimpse into Brad and Lila’s past, which is beyond tragic.  We see Brad and Lila’s daughter, Eva, who is full of love and life.  After her soccer game, Eva explains that she needs markers and Brad makes the decision to go over to the convenience store across the street.  The store is held up by a robber and Brad tries to keep him calm, but Eva walks in the door and startles the robber, causing him to turn around and shoot her.  We witness one of Brad and Lila’s therapy sessions and Lila tries to talk about getting back to work so that she can help people, but Brad seems distant and unable to even comprehend this as an option.  Brad does not identify the suspect in a lineup and ends up taking his life with his own hands.  Clark has been Brad’s best friend for a while and he intervenes and covers it up to protect him.  Brad’s guilt begins to overwhelm him and Clark is the one to suggest that he joins him at Project Noah so they can make a difference, which is how this all started.

Brad and Lila’s past is so horrific and it’s understandable that they drifted apart, but they are now being thrown together repeatedly, but it is under extremely dangerous circumstances.  We have seen several signs of a renewed spark between these two, but I’m not sure if they will get the chance to pursue it.  Either way, their connected past is revealing and it’s understandable why Brad feels such a close bond with Amy, as he will do anything to protect her.  Lila gently reminds him that Amy is not Eva, but Brad wants to keep her safe no matter what, as he is still holding on to his grief.

Overall, I thought this episode was more of a setup for what’s to come, but there were some truly heartbreaking moments within it.  We only have one more episode left before the two hour season finale.  There has been so much talk about Fanning’s plan, but I would like to see the vampires escape at this point so that we can witness what they are truly capable of.  The vampires have been in a bubble for a while now, so I think it’s about time that they are unleashed onto the world, but will anyone be able to stop them?  Stay tuned!

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

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” season 3 episode 7: “The Man in Black”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Riverdale season 3 episode 7, we may know who the Man in Black is, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s the Gargoyle King.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Chapter Forty-Two:  The Man in Black,” Archie and Jughead try to stay low in a strange town, but quickly realize that they are far from safe.  Meanwhile, Veronica shows off her gambling skills and Betty refuses to abandon her investigation, as she uncovers quite a lot of connections at the Sisters of Quiet Mercy.  My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 3 episode 7 are:

5

“When you’re trying to survive, it’s easy to lose sight of who you are.”

In the beginning of the episode, we catch up with Archie and Jughead, who are still looking for a safe place away from Hiram Lodge.  They come across a farm in the ghost-like town of Athens and are taken in by Laurie Lake and her sister.  While Archie tries to make himself useful at the farm, Jughead heads into town and detects symbols from the “Griffins and Gargoyles” game on some of the buildings.  When he asks about it, he learns that the drug, “fizzle rocks,” is here and that there is a man in black who calls the shots.  The town is oddly quiet and Jughead even comments that it is a little bit too “American Gothic” for him, but we learn that all of the men are working at the prison.  Jughead warns Archie not to get distracted, but Archie and Laurie do share a kiss.  Archie stops it from going any further; however, as he explains that he has a girl waiting for him back home.  Laurie seems harmless enough…until she hits Archie over the head with a frying pan and ties him up.  See Archie, just another reason why you should head on home to Veronica.

4

“Who’s the Man in Black?”

We quickly learn that the “Man in Black” is Hiram Lodge and that the men in town are working for him, distributing fizzle rocks.  Hiram is more than disappointed when Archie gets away with Jughead, but what was Hiram really going to do here?  Archie desperately wanted to stay and fight Hiram and “end this nightmare once and for all,” but Jughead talks some sense into him, recognizing that they are under prepared and no match for Hiram Lodge right now.  We know that Hiram is capable of murder, but would he really eliminate Archie forever?  It looks like Jughead and Archie will continue their brotherly adventure together, as they will be reunited with Jughead’s mother and sister in next week’s mid-season finale.   

3

“Veronica Lodge is not about to go quietly into the night.”

Veronica makes the decision to leave home, even though both her mother and father try to stop her.  Veronica sleeps at La Bonne Nuit and decides to spend her time figuring out how to make some real money.  She enlists the help of Elio and decides to have a casino night, which seems like a great idea, but Hiram recognizes the potential danger here.  Veronica even takes out a second mortgage on Pop’s Diner, which is extremely risky.  During the casino night, Elio is having an unrealistic streak of luck and hasn’t lost yet, which would leave Veronica in the red.  Veronica refuses to “go quietly into the night” and challenges Elio to a high stakes game of Black Jack, where the winner gets the deed to Pop’s Diner and La Bonne Nuit.  I have to say that I was extremely nervous here, but Veronica ends up winning, as she sends Elio packing.  We later find out that Veronica “scammed the scammer,” as Reggie so eloquently put it, but does this mean that Hiram has won back her affection?  Hiram did warn Veronica and got her in touch with a dealer she could trust, but we know that he has an ulterior motive here.  Later on, Pop warns Veronica and tells her, “Don’t be like your father.”  He explains that Sheriff Minetta was found murdered and that the body was decapitated and his hands were sawed off.  You really do not want to get on Hiram Lodge’s bad side.

2

“Make them think that you’re sane.”

During the episode, we also get to catch up with poor Betty, who is still at the Sisters of Quiet Mercy.  Betty’s narration is beyond hilarious, as she desperately tries to stay sane so that she can continue on with her investigation.  Fizzle rocks pop up here as well and the patients are receiving the drug as their reward or “candy,” as Sister Woodhouse said in a beyond creepy tone.  Betty observes a lot at the Sisters of Quiet Mercy and notices that both Claudius Blossom and Hiram Lodge show up, but what is the connection?  We know that Hiram Lodge is the one who initially brought the fizzle rocks drugs to the Midnight Club so many years ago, so what is his end game here and how does Claudius fit in?  It seems like Betty is actually obtaining quite the inside scoop until she meets her new roommate…Ethel.  To quote Betty, “Fun!”  Ethel is beyond obnoxious, as she tries to even tell Betty that her and Jughead will be a ship.  Betty hilariously says, “Ethelhead…in your dreams” and I have to agree.  Ethel is not the only threat that Betty has to deal with, however.

1

“The king awaits you.”

In a frightening moment, Betty is taken to The Gargoyle King’s chambers against her will after she discovers that the “X” door has been boarded up with bricks.  Betty is forced to take the fizzle rocks drug and is brought before the king, which is absolutely terrifying.  We do not get to see who or what Betty sees, but we do witness her behavior later on, as she now seems completely different.  It’s almost like she is a shell of her former self, as she gives mechanical answers about the pictures that Sister Woodhouse holds up.  Betty even recites, “My king, my savior.  Guide me through the night.  Bless me with your darkness.  Gift me with your flight.”  Has Betty been completely brainwashed?  Are the drugs to blame?  What did she really see in the Gargoyle King’s chambers?  Also, where are Cheryl and Toni?  They deserve some much needed screen time.  Stay tuned for the mid-season finale next week!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Riverdale in the comments section below.  Happy viewing!

When Kallie Bennett, a jaded teenage girl plagued by her alcoholic mother and her peers molded out of sheer bubble gum perfection, chases after Alice in Wonderland herself, she ends up lost in her own version of Wonderland, which forces her to face her utmost fears and introduces her to familiar characters with a dark twist. Among these characters is Ches, a gorgeous vampire with a conflicted conscience, who becomes Kallie’s guide and blossoming love interest. She also crosses paths with Queen Hartley, a manipulative witch who has the power to strip away one’s memories and imagination, which brings a bone chilling new meaning to “off with their heads.” In The Search for Alice, Kallie starts to realize that her Wonderland is just as frightening as her own reality and that she cannot always run away from her problems. She must figure out a way to defeat Queen Hartley and return home before it is too late, but she soon learns that escaping Wonderland means leaving Ches behind forever.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 7: “It’s Time Together that Matters”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 7, I realized that it’s not the big moments that count the most.  It’s the memories we have and the “time together that matters,” as Jack so eloquently pointed out.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Unhuman Behavior,” Jack’s health takes a turn for the worse, as Sam, Dean, and Castiel desperately try to figure out a way to save him.  Meanwhile, Nick continues to head down a path of darkness, revealing his inner true nature.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 7 are:

5

“He was stabbed through the heart and exploded.”

Even though this episode was an emotional roller coaster for me, Castiel provided us with a laugh out loud moment to break the tension.  After Castiel determines that he cannot help Jack, he takes him to the hospital and everyone is beyond stressed about the situation.  After Dean has trouble coming up with details about Jack’s birth date, the family medical history seems like it could be handled, especially since we know that Jack’s biological father, Lucifer, is dead.  However, Castiel bluntly tells the woman at the hospital exactly how Lucifer died, which leads to some strange looks from her and Sam and Dean.

4

“His body is shutting down.”

After Jack’s hospital tests come back negative, this seems like a good sign, but the doctor explains that Jack’s body is actually shutting down and they can’t figure out why.  It is later determined that Jack needs archangel grace to survive, but it’s not like this is easy to find anymore.  Against the doctor’s recommendation, Sam and Dean take Jack out of the hospital and refuse to give up.  They are ready to use all of their resources to help him.  While they begin discussing what Jack needs, Dean repeatedly zones out during the conversation.  Does this mean that Michael is somehow still linked to Dean?  Could this be the key to helping Jack?  We’ll have to wait to find out, but there is definitely something not quite right with Dean.

“Is this a trick Samuel?”

Our favorite witch is back!  After realizing that they cannot help Jack, Sam calls up Rowena.  Rowena initially thinks she is there to help Dean, but quickly learns that Sam wants her to help Jack.  Rowena is not exactly thrilled about this at first since she does not have the best history with Lucifer, but Jack approaches Rowena and explains, “I’m trying hard not to be like him.”  He tells Rowena that Sam and Dean say such nice things about her as well, revealing his innocent charm.  Rowena agrees to try and help Jack, but quickly realizes that she is in over her head.

“I like doing these things and I don’t want to stop.”

We finally catch up to Nick in this episode and learn that he is continuing to spiral out of control.  Nick is obsessed with finding out what happened to his family, but his journey is leading him down a very dark path.  Nick seems overwhelmed by all of these feelings, but the darkness continues to win, as he brutally murders anyone he determines to be guilty.  The ex-cop reveals to Nick something about the name, Abraxas, which seems familiar to his Lucifer memories, but we don’t have too much to go on here just yet.  Later on, Nick begins to pray and reveals that he actually likes tapping into the darkness and begs Lucifer to return to him.  Nick has clearly stirred something up inside of him, but is it enough for Lucifer to re-surface?  I’m thinking that it’s only a matter of time before he makes himself known.

“It’s time together that matters.”

Jack has accepted his fate, even though his “Dads” refuse to give up.  Jack just wants to have a chance to really experience life and Dean agrees to accompany him.  Dean teaches Jack to drive and hilariously reminds him that, “R is not for race.”  Jack really tries to be like Dean here, which is absolutely adorable and even screams out, “It’s like I’m you!”  This is definitely a heartwarming father-son moment and it looks like Dean needed this just as much as Jack did.  Later on, Jack expresses a desire to go fishing with Dean and tells him that he remembers that it is one of Dean’s fondest memories with his own father.  Jack opens up to Dean here and really gives us all an important lesson about life when he explains that it’s about the time together that truly matters.  After the Serbian Shaman’s “experiment” fails, Jack is in even worse condition and Sam, Dean, and Castiel are completely helpless.  They stay by Jack’s side to support him, but is there any other way to save him?  Let’s hope so because I can’t bear to see Jack go.  He has made such an impact on everyone and they truly think of him as a son.  Stay tuned!

She must figure out a way to defeat Queen Hartley and return home before it is too late, but she soon learns that escaping Wonderland means leaving Ches behind forever.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” season 9 episode 7: “What Makes Us Stronger”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season 9 episode 7, we were left with more unanswered questions, as we approach the mid-season finale next Sunday.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Stradivarius,” Rosita is found near Hilltop and is clearly traumatized after dealing with some rather motivated walkers.  Meanwhile, Daryl now has a dog named “Dog” and Michonne eliminates a violin that was looking shifty.  My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 9 episode 7 are:

5

“You’re just gonna have to trust me.”

In the beginning of the episode, Michonne continues to lead the new characters to Hilltop, but they are a little hesitant about trusting her.  Michonne clearly still has her guard up, even though she is fulfilling her promise to Judith.  The new characters seem like they have good intentions and even show off just how useful they can be when they help take out the surrounding walkers.  We know that trust is not always earned so easily, however.

4

“I left him.”

Rosita shows up near the Hilltop camp and is injured and traumatized.  She explains that Eugene is still out there and that she left him in some kind of barn.  We know that Eugene had hurt his leg, but we have no idea what is going on where he is.  The walkers are getting smarter, but will they be able to find Eugene in his hiding spot?  We’ll have to wait to find out, but it looks like we will get to witness some more of the evolution of the walkers in next week’s mid-season finale.

“You could at least pretend to be happy.”

Meanwhile, we learn that Jesus is now the leader of Hilltop, but he does receive a letter from Maggie, which means she is safe.  I was a little confused about where she was and thought perhaps I missed something until Michonne also asked about her whereabouts.  We get a vague answer about her taking Hershel with her to help build some other community, but when will we see her again?  We know that Lauren Cohan plans to leave after this season, but is this supposed to be her exit or will we get something more concrete?

2

“This is the one thing that separates us from the animals.”

As we get to know the new characters more, Michonne demonstrates just how little she trusts them when she eliminates Luke’s violin.  Michonne assumed that Luke had a weapon, but Luke tries to explain the importance of music and art to her.  Luke feels like it’s what separates us from the animals and I have to say that he’s right, as he almost takes a page out of Fear the Walking Dead’s book.  Bringing people together sounds a lot like Rick’s vision, but is Michonne finally ready to get back to that?

“After a while it just got easier to stay out here.”

Carol takes her son to go visit Daryl and we learn that Daryl has a new best friend…named Dog.  I guess Daryl didn’t really see the point of naming him, but I was happy to see that he at least had someone keeping him company.  In a touching moment, Carol gives Daryl a much needed haircut and they talk about how they never found Rick’s body.  Daryl has clearly not given up on Rick, but he found it easier to stay out on his own.  After a close call with some walkers, Daryl and Dog are OK and he agrees to escort Carol to Hilltop.  After finding out about Eugene, Daryl is ready to go out and track him, proving that perhaps he is finally ready to be around people again.  It’s also important to note that Daryl has the same “X” mark as Michonne, which is only increasing my curiosity.  While I’m not sure we will find out about it in next week’s mid-season finale, it’s definitely something that needs to be explored soon.  Overall, this episode felt very much like a place holder for next week’s mid-season finale, but it did have some redeeming moments.  Stay tuned!
