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

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

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

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

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

5

“He wants us off our game.”

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

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

We’ll have to wait to find out…

“Magic Pool Hall.”

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

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

“I learn from my brother.”

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

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

Go Sam!

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

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

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

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

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

“It’s really him.”

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

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

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

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

Ranking the top 5 moments from “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” season 8 episode 10 Season Finale: “But my Sisters are a Legion Motherf*cker”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the FX network’s American Horror Story:  Apocalypse season 8 episode 10 season finale last night, the final battle we have all been waiting for is finally here.  Only it may not be the showdown that you were initially predicting.  Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Apocalypse Then,” the past finally meets the present, as the witches of coven face Michael Langdon.  Sacrifices are made and betrayals are finally dealt with in this jam-packed finale.  My top 5 moments from American Horror Story:  Apocalypse season 8 episode 10 season finale are:

5

“So this is goodbye.”

In the beginning of the episode, we witness Myrtle Snow paying a visit to Jeff and Mutt.  This further explains how the witches were able to successfully book Coco and Mallory a reservation at Outpost 3.  Myrtle puts Ms. Venable in her place and reminds her that purple is for royalty.  Later on, Cordelia explains to the girls that they will forget everything they know about themselves.  Coco’s new personality is actually modeled after Madison, which explains a lot and Madison hilariously tells her to “consider it an upgrade.”  Coco is meant to be mean to Mallory, as Cordelia needs to ensure that Mallory doubts herself so that her powers are not detected, revealing that she really has thought of every detail here.  She further explains that her “powers will emerge when they are ready.”  We also get to see Cordelia, Myrtle, and Madison waking up after the apocalypse, proving our theory that they would use the healing powers of the Louisiana swamps.  After all, “it’s time.”

4

“There is no way that bitch could get a show on television without selling her soul to the devil.”

After Madison shows off her less than impressive skills as an Uber driver, she drops off Coco and Mallory, who are now under the identity spell.  Madison notices Dinah’s billboard on a bus and quickly realizes that she is the one who sold them out.  Madison wants to do something about it, but Cordelia explains that Dinah must stay safe until they are ready to “make her pay.”  In present day, Dinah refuses to get caught in the middle of the battle between the witches and Michael, but we are all in for a surprise when Marie Laveau walks in, played by the wonderful Angela Bassett, and says, “She needed the help of a voodoo queen but that ain’t you.”  Cordelia made a deal with Papa and gave him Dinah’s soul, freeing Marie in exchange.  Marie takes out Dinah and tells her to give Papa her regards.  All hail the real voodoo queen!

3

“It’s payback bitch.”

Now that all of our players are in place, the battle we have all been waiting for quickly begins.  Ms. Mead is eliminated and Madison channels her inner Tony Montana from Scarface, as she opens fire on Michael with Ms. Mead’s arm.  Madison agrees to hold off Michael as long as she can, but is quickly eliminated.  “I guess it’s back to retail.”  Marie and Coco also team up to take Michael down, but he kills them both and reminds us, “I’m nothing like normal.”  Brock also finally shows up again and brutally stabs Mallory for not taking him on the plane, but Myrtle takes him out.  As Mallory’s life force begins pouring out of her, Cordelia knows what she must do to protect her sisters and the world.  It seems like all hope is lost, but Cordelia faces Michael with her head held high and reminds him that he may be the only son of Satan, but “my sisters are a legion motherf*cker!”  Cordelia stabs herself so that Mallory can rise as the next Supreme and complete her time travel spell, which is the ultimate sacrifice. 

2

“I’m scared.”

It’s 2015 and Michael is just a boy again, living with Constance Langdon.  As Michael heads out into the street, Mallory runs him over with a car several times to eliminate the threat once and for all.  Constance stands over him and Michael begs her to take him back into Murder House so that they can be together forever, but Constance refuses to grant his last wish and tells him to go to hell.  The ultimate battle we have all been waiting for is over, but it’s not the showdown we were predicting.  Mallory has changed the timeline to save her sisters and also the world, but what does this mean for the rest of the AHS universe?  After all, changing the past can have unforeseen consequences for the future.

1

“The battle between good and evil never ends.”

Now that the threat is eliminated, Mallory returns to her coven and remembers everything.  She is so excited to see Cordelia again and Cordelia even asks her if they have met before.  Myrtle is not back because Cordelia no longer saw the threat of the end of the world and Madison will have to “sweat it out a little longer” in her retail hell.  Mallory was able to get some “blazing street cred” with creatures of the underworld since she took down the Antichrist and Misty and Nan are safely returned.  Only Nan would prefer to return to her Papa.  I guess as long as she is happy.  Mallory reminds us that the battle between good and evil never ends and we know that there needs to always be a balance in the world.  Avoiding the apocalypse does explain how we are able to see the year 2020 in AHS Hotel, which successfully fills in some gaps for us.  Timothy and Emily are able to cross paths again in this new world, which initially seems sweet and romantic.  Remember them?  Only we know that they were saved because of their DNA and that they were worthy of potentially repopulating the earth.  Emily gives birth to the new Antichrist, as they are horrified when they find his babysitter brutally murdered.  Ms. Mead and the Black Pope knock on their door, recognizing the power and potential in their son, proving that evil has indeed found its loophole.  Stay tuned for season 9!

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 “Ash vs Evil Dead” season 3 episode 9: “Judgement Day”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching Starz’s Ash vs Evil Dead season 3 episode 9 last night, we are getting extremely close to the finish line.  Starz recently announced that this season will be the last for Ash vs Evil dead which means anything goes.  Main characters can die, the world can collapse, and “boomstick” could be left behind.  That being said, this episode is filled with shocking moments so who knows what we can expect in the series finale next week.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Judgement Day,” Ash goes after Ruby to end this once and for all, Zoe suffers an unsightly end, and the Dark Ones arrive in Elk Grove.  Meanwhile, Pablo’s powers advance and Brandy gets an incoming call from her dead mother.  My top 5 moments from Ash vs Evil Dead season 3 episode 9 are:

5

The Dark Ones arrive.

In the beginning of the episode, poor Zoe is tortured while Ruby cuts off her skin to make a new page for the Book of the Dead.  Kaya gauges out her eyes and kills her once they get what they want, but they’ll get what they deserve later on.  You know Karma and all that.  Meanwhile, the Dark Ones have already arrived and come through the rift, so it looks like Ruby is out of time.  The Dark Ones are cloaked shadowy figures, sort of resembling the “Dementors” from Harry Potter.  They begin wreaking havoc on Elk Grove, spreading evil everywhere they go.  While the town declares Martial Law, it’s unlikely that anyone will be able to stop this threat except for the prophesied one.

4

“I’m coming for you Ruby.  Time to die.”

Ash gives Pablo and his daughter, Brandy a pep talk and then heads out to Ms. Prevett’s home to destroy Ruby once and for all.  Even though we have heard this speech from Ash numerous times before, we are rooting for him all the same.  Ash begins pounding beers on the ride over to psych himself up, not realizing that the town is currently under attack.  When he comes face to face with Ruby, he demands that she release Kelly’s body so that he can save his friend.  After all, “who the fuck is Kaya?”  Ash demands that she evict her so that he can have the “no vacancy” sign removed for Kelly once she comes through the rift.  It’s actually a spot on analogy if you think about it.  Ash and Ruby face off and Ruby even destroys his beloved chainsaw right before his eyes, but no one is ready for what comes next.

3

“I’m Ashy Slashy’s daughter!”

Poor Brandy is left alone in Ash’s home but he makes sure to leave her with his trusty weapon, “boomstick.”  She tries to thank him and ends up vomiting on him as a side effect from coming back from the dead, but Ash is OK with this.  After all, he loves his daughter and is happy to have her back safe and sound.  Once the Dark Ones arrive, evil is around pretty much every corner, putting Brandy in immediate danger.  Brandy proves to be quite resourceful and tries to escape the evil.  This is no easy task, however; as she begins to get incoming calls and unwanted voicemails from her dead mother.  Brandy tells herself it is not real and stays strong.  She cuts off part of her thumb and for a moment, sees herself cutting off her own hand to truly become Ash Williams’s daughter, but it is only a hallucination.  With her hand intact, Brandy destroys the evil and reminds it who she is.  Our little Brandy has grown up so fast and has embraced her true calling.  Go Brandy!

2

“I don’t get a manual with being El Brujo Especial.”

Pablo begins getting more intense visions that literally blind him while they occur, as he can actually see into Ruby’s place through the eyes of the Necronomicon.  He quickly realizes that poor Zoe is dead and that Ruby is trying to find the rift.  Pablo gets down to the rift, but the Dark Ones have already come through it.  They obtain the lost pages, but evil suddenly has no interest in Pablo.  It’s like his new powers have cloaked him from them, allowing him to sneak through town undetected.  Pablo explains to Ash that if the lost pages are reunited with the Necronomicon, all hell will break loose and there may be no stopping it.  Pablo’s powers are advancing quickly, but will he be able to help Ash stop this threat?

1

“Poor Ruby.  I’m melting.  Fuck off bitch.”

After Ruby destroys Ash’s chainsaw, it seems like he may not be winning this battle.  However, the Dark Ones interrupt before their fight can go any further.  The Dark Ones eject Kaya from Kelly’s body and burn her alive.  While this is happening, Ash grabs Kelly’s body and the book and sneaks out of there.  Ash doesn’t shed any tears when Ruby is killed by the Dark Ones, but it’s clear that their powers are far greater than anything we have seen before.  Either way, so long Ruby.  You were a worthy opponent for sure.  Ash heads to the hardware store to meet up with Brandy and Pablo.  The Dark Ones obtain the book and connect it with the lost pages and open up the ground.  An overwhelmingly large monster begins to surface and it looks like the final battle has finally come.  Who will win the battle?  Will the Ghost Beaters be able to save Kelly?  Who will survive?  Stay tuned for the series finale next week!
