Ranking the top 5 moments from “American Horror Story: 1984” season 9 episode 6: “Episode 100”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the FX network’s American Horror Story:  1984 season 9 episode 6, I learned that sometimes “being bad feels really good,” but that doesn’t mean that we should throw our moral compass out the window.  Or does it?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “Episode 100,” we time jump quite a bit for the 100th episode of AHS, bringing us a killer soundtrack and some new plot twists.  Meanwhile, Xavier and Montana adjust to life being dead, Brooke is on death row, and Margaret is living the good life.  My top 5 moments from American Horror Story:  1984 season 9 episode 6 are:

5

“Take a picture.  It will last longer.”

I guess it didn’t take Xavier and Montana too long to adjust to life being dead at Camp Redwood, as they enjoy some “bitchin kills” along the way.  Ray is still trying to do what is right, but they remind him that there are no more consequences.

Xavier and Montana seem to be hot and heavy, but they have a real passion for murder, but it looks like they may have bigger fish to fry when Margaret shows up for the Halloween concert.

“Old habits die hard.”

Margaret seems to be living the good life and surprise…Trevor is actually still alive and is now her cokehead husband.  We learn that Trevor remembers everything all too well and tries to blackmail Margaret, but she decides to strategically make him her husband so that he can never testify against her.  I guess that’s the next best thing to having a sugar mama.

Margaret has made her wealth by investing in real estate for properties that have had major massacres or horrible things take place, but it looks like her diamond in the rough is returning to Camp Redwood.  Let’s see how this works out.

“That bitch needs to die.”

Margaret announces some kind of Halloween concert at Camp Redwood, which will feature…Billy Idol!  Well, we know that the Night Stalker is going to want to be in attendance, but Margaret’s presence has also stirred up a need for revenge among all the undead spirits residing there.

I always love the Halloween episodes of AHS, so I’m eager to see how this turns out and hopefully we will get some more amazing songs featured as well!  Will Billy make an actual appearance?

“Welcome back to the land of the living.”

Poor Brooke is about to be executed even though she is innocent and she ends up running into the Night Stalker in prison.  The Night Stalker says his master sees potential in her and reminds her that she can still say “yes” to Satan, but she decides to respond with, “F*ck off.” 

Brooke stays strong through it all and spits on the window, realizing that Margaret is there about to watch her die.  Brooke says that she is innocent one last time before she receives the lethal injection, but our favorite final girl gets a lucky break.

Fake Rita/Donna/Dee Dee shows up and injects her with something, bringing her back to life.  Brooke is back to the land of the living and I can’t wait to see her take her rightful revenge.  Go Brooke!

“I thought I could be free but I’ll never be free.”

Even though Mr. Jingles made a deal with Satan, he is looking for redemption.  He ends up getting the Night Stalker thrown in jail and decides to make a fresh start for himself in Alaska because you know, that’s where everyone goes for a clean slate in movies.  Mr. Jingles/Benjamin/Donald now works at a Videoshack and even comes up with the famous “Be Kind, Rewind” slogan for Blockbuster, which gave me a lot of fun nostalgia.

Mr. Jingle nows has a wife (former prostitute) and an infant son, but the Night Stalker shows up to take everything away from him after asking his master for a chance at immortality.  The Night Stalker brutally murders his wife and he decides to leave his baby with their neighbor.  Mr. Jingles realizes now that he can never be free and decides to end this once and for all.  It looks like we have all of our players in place now so we’ll have to see who ends up surviving.

Overall, I was slightly underwhelmed by AHS’s 100th episode.  I guess I was hoping for some more familiar Easter eggs and AHS did what it always does around episode 5 or 6, where it decides to take this weird turn with the plot.  I really enjoyed the simple slasher formula so I’m not sure that we needed all of this excess fluff, but I’m eager to see Brooke and Mr. Jingles take their revenge.  Stay tuned!

I also enjoyed this music soundtrack the most out of all the episodes so far and hope you enjoy the highlights from it below!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” season 9 episode 9: “Home, Sweet Home”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season 9 episode 9 Mid-Season Premiere, I realized that sometimes being a good judge of character is not as easy as one might suspect.  Do you go with your gut or do you believe that there is still goodness within others, even though you have been burned before?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Adaptation,” Negan finally gets some well deserved screen time and leaves Alexandria, but starts to have second thoughts about where he truly belongs.  Meanwhile, Michonne and Daryl capture a Whisperer, Luke tries to keep things light, and Rosita reveals a secret.  My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 9 episode 9 are:

5

“I’m pregnant.”

During the episode, Rosita gets sick after Eugene returns and reveals that she is pregnant.  I guess congratulations are in order, only we find out that Dr. Siddiq is the potential father since apparently Rosita was “having fun” with him before she started seeing Gabriel.  I honestly can’t keep track of all of these romances, but it’s interesting that another pregnancy has now been revealed on the show.  But what does that mean for Eugene?  I’ve been secretly shipping Rosita and Eugene for a while, but I’m not sure if that is in the cards now.

“Two man band.”

Luke, played by Dan Fogler, is still bringing us some laughs, which is important on a show like TWD, which can be very heavy and draining sometimes.  Luke offers to help out and goes on a sweep with Alden.  He talks about forming a two man band and says it can be a “symphony of awesome.”  While I love these two bonding right now, it doesn’t look too good for them when they end up surrounded by the Whisperers at the end of the episode.

3

“You try anything, you won’t have to pretend.”

During the episode, Michonne and Daryl capture a Whisperer.  Michonne reminds us that she is a bad-ass and threatens the Whisperer.  We know that Michonne will be leaving the series during season 10, but it looks like she is going to continue to stay guarded in the meantime.  After all, we still don’t know the back story of these “X” marks, but Michonne is not taking any chances with this Whisperer chick.  I can’t say that I really blame her, however.

2

“These people need you.”

During the episode, Michonne reminds Daryl that everyone needs him and that he is the “best judge of character” she knows.  While you may not think this skill is worth mentioning, it absolutely is, as so many of the characters on the show fail to see what is right in front of them.  Daryl has the ability to see who someone truly is, but he has been on his own for quite some time now.  Daryl confronts the Whisperer chick and screams, “don’t like to me,” proving that he means business, but Henry intervenes when Daryl decides to do what is necessary.  Henry is naive and almost pointless here, except that the Whisperer chick takes advantage and tells him that her name is Lydia and thanks him.  I literally said, “dumb ass Henry,” to my television during this scene, but I guess we have to have someone to yell at.

1

“Home, sweet home.”

Negan finally gets the quality screen time he deserves in this episode and I have to say that it’s about time!  Negan tries to escape Alexandria, but Judith catches him.  Judith is not about to let Negan go, but he reasons with her.  Negan and Judith have formed a strong bond and Judith makes a real decision for herself by letting him go.  Negan has quite the adventure, as he ends up returning to his old “home” and tries to embrace a form of nostalgia.  However, Negan comes to the realization that his former home is pretty much gone and there is nothing left there for him.  Negan comes back and Judith shoots at him like she promised, but Negan thoughtfully returns her compass and decides to stay in Alexandria after all.  What’s next for Negan?  I’m not sure, but it looks like his character will be developing further, which is something that I am looking forward to.  Stay tuned!
