Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 9: “The Flock”

Happy Wednesday TV fans! After finally watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 9, I realized that trust is important. It’s important for one another and it’s important for mankind, but what happens when the people you trust the most turn against you?

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

In episode 9, “The Flock,” we catch up with Octavia, Echo, Diyoza, and Hope, as they show us what happened three months prior to being reunited with Clarke. Meanwhile, Murphy and Indra team up with an unlikely ally to stop a hostage situation.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 9 are:

5

“This is all that is left…”

Well, we finally got to see what was behind door number one, as Octavia, Diyoza, Echo, and Hope follow Anders into the elevator three months prior to present day. As they accept their training to become disciples, they quickly learn that they are about to begin fighting an “unwinnable war,” as they now realize that Gabriel actually did save their lives.

The air outside is fatal and the condition of it suggests that perhaps there really will be nothing left at the end of all of this…

Let’s hope not!

4

“She’s brave. I’ll give her that.”

Meanwhile, back on Sanctum, Murphy is dealing with a hostage situation, as Nikki holds Emori and the rest of the people there hostage. Nikki wants Murphy, Russell, and Raven to turn themselves in, but that’s going to be a little difficult to achieve since Raven is currently MIA.

Murphy definitely needs some backup here and luckily Indra hears the special announcement. Perhaps two out of three will satisfy Nikki, but Murphy is not going to leave his Emori behind.

3

“You’ve seen me at my worst…and best.”

I guess we weren’t too far off with the vibes we have been noticing between our girl Octavia and Levitt. Octavia is no stranger to the Romeo and Juliet type of forbidden love, but there is something really sweet and genuine about these two.

Octavia and the others are being told to check their emotions at the door, but it looks like Levitt is under her spell for good now…swoon!

Let’s just hope that Octavia finally gets a happily ever after because she has been through some real heartbreak and I’m not sure I can take much more.

2

“Following rules isn’t how you win a war.”

Well, maybe not, but Echo is tossing all of her emotions out the door. Anders notices that Echo is a model of perfect control and thinks she will be the way they win the war, but has Echo gone too far?

She is basically shedding her soul, but we know that it’s because she can’t process her grief over Bellamy. I just hope she doesn’t end up on a path of destruction because it’s not looking too good for her right now…

Everyone is given a series of tests during their training and the final test basically causes them to sacrifice someone they love for the good of all mankind. Echo passes her test with flying colors along with Diyoza and Octavia, but Hope is not able to do so.

Echo decides her punishment and banishes her to Penance for five years while poor Diyoza holds back her tears. Talk about brutal…

1

“What are subjects without kings?”

Murphy and Indra are forced to team up with Russell Prime (Sheidheda) and I’m not sure that this is really a beautiful friendship, but they have no choice. Murphy admits to everyone that they are not Primes and the truth is finally out in the open.

This leads to a lot of chaos, but luckily Indra shows up with perfect timing to save Murphy from being killed in front of Emori.

Sheidheda is loving the destruction and violence and finally rises as the new king as he slaughters the entire “flock” of people standing before him.

It looks like he is finally unleashing his wrath, but let’s hope that Indra can stop this demon once and for all. I’m rooting for you, Indra!

New episodes return August 5th 2020! Let’s hope we finally get some answers about where Gaia is and Bellamy’s confirmed fate.

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 4: “Hesperides”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 4, I was reminded that fear is a factor, but you have to find a way to fight through it. 

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

In last night’s episode, “Hesperides,” Clarke and the others work together to figure out a way to save Bellamy, Octavia, and Echo from The Anomaly. Meanwhile, Raven attempts to cope with the blood on her hands and Echo makes a heartbreaking decision.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 4 are:

5

“Trust me. I’ve done this before.”

In the beginning of the episode, we see things from Hope’s perspective after losing both her mother, Diyoza, and Octavia. A stranger arrives near her home named Dev, but Hope initially wants nothing to do with him.

As the years go by, they continue to get closer and he teaches Hope how to fight, but his life is lost when The Anomaly opens up after Hope hesitates before killing a Disciple. It’s clear that Dev and Hope were like family to one another and perhaps something even more, but I thought this glimpse into the past really allowed us to learn more about Hope’s character.

Echo and Gabriel are looking for a way out of The Anomaly, but Hope reminds them that she’s done this before and that they will need to wait five years. Easier said than done…

4

“I can’t forget their faces.”

Meanwhile, Raven is clearly having a tough time dealing with the fresh blood on her hands after that insane radiation dilemma. Clarke reminds her not to forget about the faces she saved, but Raven has even more trouble when she has to take out some of The Disciples later on to help her friends.

The 100 7 4 2 The CW

We know that Raven has been through a lot over the seasons, but her moral compass is wavering back and forth now. Let’s just hope that she can get through this because we need her!

3

“Every second counts.”

Well, it pretty much always does on this show, but we start to actually connect our story-lines between Sanctum and The Anomaly, which is a good thing. But where the hell is Bellamy?

We find out that The Disciples want Clarke and that she is the key to stopping a war, but is she just a target?

The 100 7 4 3 The CW

Clarke is ready to sacrifice herself if needed to help her friends, but Raven discovers that The Anomaly is actually a wormhole and that they can travel to different planets with it.

2

“Plans change.”

Meanwhile, in The Anomaly, time flies by as Echo, Hope, and Gabriel work together with Disciple, Orlando, to prepare for when The Anomaly opens again. Orlando is not one of their people, but a bond forms between them all and it looks like we are witnessing a new type of family. Even Echo lets her walls down and we get to witness some bad-ass hair cuts and decorative face tattoos for the occasion.

When The Anomaly opens again, Hope doesn’t hesitate this time and ends up taking out a Disciple as Orlando screams. Echo realizes that Orlando is not one of them and will do whatever it takes to save Bellamy.

This apparently includes killing every last Disciple in front of Orlando and leaving him behind. Gabriel and Hope think that this is wrong, but Echo asks them if they want to stay or find answers.

They reluctantly follow as Orlando is betrayed by them. We know that Echo is no stranger to doing the unthinkable, but she has come so far as a character and has now gone down a familiar role of betrayal.

Will Bellamy be able to forgive her when he finds out what she has done? Will she be able to forgive herself?

The 100 7 4 4 The CW

My heart goes out to Echo and I have really started to fall in love with her character, but she is going down a dark road now and I’m not sure that she will be able to come back from it. Either way, this episode stirred a lot of emotions and we are only on episode 4 of the final season.

1

“Who wants to go for a ride?”

The Clarke we know and love is back. She’s ready to go off into the unknown to risk it all to save her friends. There she is! I’ve been waiting for Clarke to go back to her roots for the final season and it looks like we are all in for a ride.

Clarke gives everyone a choice when they open up The Anomaly and Gaia says that she will stay behind to protect Madi. Raven randomly picks a planet, hoping that they will find their friends, but we know the odds aren’t that great.

They can always find a way back…right?

Well, that may not be so easy as someone shuts down The Anomaly and attacks Gaia. Of course this happens right after a lingering goodbye between her and Clarke to make us suffer even more! Both of them are sucked into The Anomaly and now Clarke and the others are stuck on some unknown planet with no way out…

This should be interesting!

This was an emotional episode, but I’m really happy that we are finally connecting the story-lines because it was getting a little exhausting jumping back and forth between them each episode.

Let’s hope that we can catch up with Bellamy so that he can jump in to help save the day because it looks like our characters need him.

In other news, we know it’s only a matter of time before Sheidheda makes his next move as well.

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on The 100 in the comments section below.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

My performance of the week ending 5/30/20 on TV goes to…

Marie Avgeropoulos as Octavia Blake on The CW’s The 100.

Let’s talk about one of the most brilliant and incredible character transformations on a television series of all time. The quiet girl under the floor has stepped out of her big brother’s shadow, embracing love, heartache, leadership, loss, and happiness. While a lot of the attention still centers around Clarke, Octavia has quickly become the heart and soul of The 100 and season 7, episode 2 is another great example of this.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on season 7.

It’s not easy finding your way, especially when you grew up as a secret. Octavia only really knew Bellamy as her family, but she quickly became a reliable member of the group once our favorite characters made it down to earth.

After experiencing life out in the open with brand new eyes, Octavia met the love of her life, Lincoln. Their love was beautiful and transcendent of everything else around them, but Lincoln was killed in front of her, which was one of the most heartbreaking moments of the entire series for me.

Octavia turned her grief into strength and trained with Indra to become an unstoppable warrior. She was driven by revenge and eventually shattered her moral compass when she became the leader of Wonkru…Blodreina. Remember that familiar chant?

“You are Wonkru or you are the enemy of Wonkru. Choose…”

Well, it’s not much of a choice when the alternative is death, but Blodreina transformed into a ruthless leader, but there were still glimmers of humanity within her. We later discovered that Octavia took on all of the burden so that no one else had to. As much as you wanted to hate her for her actions, you couldn’t.

Bellamy has always been able to bring Octavia back, but after their huge fallout, Octavia seemed truly alone. Her friendship with Diyoza allowed her to head down a path toward redemption as she stumbled across the mysterious anomaly.

After watching season 7, episode 2, Marie Avgeropoulos had me in tears once again. Her letter to Bellamy was so heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time. Octavia has finally learned what it means to love again, bonding with Diyoza and her daughter, Hope. Even though she has a new family, she still holds Bellamy close to her heart and wants him to know that she now understands.

This was such a huge moment for Octavia as a character. Through it all, she finally is able to recognize her mistakes and redeem herself to become someone others can always count on.

What’s next for Octavia? This is the final season of the series so it will be interesting to see if Octavia’s journey toward self-discovery is almost done. I’d love to see a reunion between her and Bellamy, but I also have a feeling that she may sacrifice everything to save him and her friends, which would make her an eternal hero. I’d also love to see another flashback or memory with Lincoln because it truly was the ultimate love story of the series.

Octavia The 100 CW 3

Either way, I am so beyond impressed with Marie Avgeropoulos as an actress. She channels so much strength into her character and has shown us so many sides of Octavia. Some of them have been good and some of them have been on the other side of the spectrum, but everything she pours into her character is compelling and disturbingly real.

I can’t wait to see how it all ends and I will be an Octavia Blake fan for life!

May we meet again.

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 2: “The Garden”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 2, I was reminded that “teamwork makes the dream work,” but oftentimes we still need to see things through on our own.

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

In last night’s episode, “The Garden,” we finally learn about the anomaly in the past and present. Octavia’s fate is revealed while we discover more about Hope and where she comes from.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 2 are:

5

“What took you so long?”

Well, apparently time is pretty relative in the anomaly. You can be in the anomaly for years and only be gone on Sanctum for about five minutes. This makes time travel seem like a piece of cake compared to this vortex of uncertainty.

The episode presents us with flashbacks from when Octavia went through the anomaly and also allows us to catch up with Echo, Gabriel, and Hope in the somewhat present or future? Yeah, I’m still piecing that together.

Either way, the beginning of the episode gives us some hope, (pun intended) as Octavia catches up with Diyoza and helps her while she is in labor. We get this heartwarming moment where Octavia sees Hope for the first time and it’s clear that there is an unbreakable bond between this unlikely family.

I’m glad to see that Diyoza is OK, although her present fate is still undetermined.

4

“What is it about Bellamy?”

A fair question for sure! Bellamy is just that guy that you can depend on. Even when he shuns you completely, you know that you must have done something to earn that. Bellamy is loyal and trustworthy. Octavia is focused on letting him know that she finally understands and Echo reminds us that she can kick a lot of ass to find him.

The 100 7 2 2 The CW

Seriously, Echo is becoming one of my favorite characters. I’m not sure when this happened, but I’m worried about her fate now.

We still do not know Bellamy’s fate, but I think it’s safe to say that if he has this many people asking about his well being, he’s probably OK. Besides, I’m still waiting for my epic Bellarke moment!!!!

3

“This is my way out.”

As we witness Octavia’s new life, we learn that she has really connected with Diyoza and Hope. Even though Bellamy will always be her family, she has another family now and Diyoza tries to remind her of this.

The 100 7 2 3 The CW

However, Octavia is still determined to find a way back to Sanctum to help and warn Bellamy. She tries to swim toward the light, but can’t hold her breath long enough to reach it. After finding a suit that may be able to help her, Diyoza sabotages the helmet.

Diyoza recognizes that Octavia or “Aunty O” is an important influence in Hope’s life and she doesn’t want to lose her.

Gotta say that “Blodreina” may have had a catchier ring, but Octavia can certainly rock “Aunty O” too!

2

“Welcome to Skyring.”

We have another planet in The 100 realm and it has a catchy name for sure. In somewhat present day, Echo, Gabriel, and Hope try to track down clues and learn that the anomaly may be a bridge between worlds.

The 100 7 2 4 The CW

We also find out about the scary guys chasing them who are named The Disciples.

But who are The Disciples and what do they want? It looks like we will have to wait a little longer to find out more information on them.

Hope casually mentions that they will have to wait five years before they can return, but Echo doesn’t think that’s an acceptable answer.

After Gabriel finds a potential code that will help them escape, a deranged man who has been living in Skyring destroys it because nothing can be easy on The 100.

We certainly got a lot of explanations surrounding the anomaly, but it looks like we still have a lot of mystery remaining.

1

“I understand…”

Once again, we witness the incredible and brilliant transformation of Octavia’s character. The girl under the floor has seen it all. She displayed strength then and went through an unimaginable loss when she watched Lincoln die in front of her.

After that, she trained until she became a fierce warrior and lost herself as Blodreina.

After trying to make amends, Octavia has finally found a peace within her. With Diyoza and Hope’s help, Octavia has finally released the darkness that was weighing her down, but she can’t fully embrace her true identity until she lets Bellamy know that she understands.

She writes this beautiful and moving letter to him, hoping that he will somehow see it one day. She says, “I wish I could see your face and tell you that I get it now.” Octavia recognizes that she might be old or dead by the time Bellamy sees the letter and tells him that she did find happiness and wants Bellamy to be happy too.

Octavia Blake has truly transformed over this series and I can’t wait to see how it all ends.

Now back to Sanctum in our next episode…

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

My performance of the week ending 1/18/20 on TV goes to…

Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester on The CW’s Supernatural.

If you thought Jared was done shattering our hearts into a million pieces after winning your favorite male performance on television for two years in a row, think again!  Sam Winchester is starting 2020 off with a heart-wrenching performance that will continue to linger with you long after watching Season 15 episode 9, “The Trap.”

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on the series.**

Jared Padalecki has this brilliant way of bringing the fans in with charm and compassion.  He is so effective as Sam Winchester, making you truly think that he is your best friend.  He’s someone to root for against all odds and he wears his heart on his sleeve, which is not an easy thing to do when he is constantly facing angels, demons, and God.

Sam Winchester The CW 1

While all of the performances on SPN are always fantastic, there is just something about Jared’s portrayal of Sam that truly resonates with me.  His connection with God put him in danger and yet he still tries to hold on to that last sliver of hope, refusing to believe that there could be a world where Dean would ever give up.

Sam’s loyalty and courage make him a true hero.  Even though Chuck wants to believe that there is only one end to the Winchester story, there is no breaking Sam Winchester.  His dark trip to the future was revealing enough, allowing Chuck’s plan to work, but Sam is a fighter and he’s not going to give up without reaching into the deepest depths of his soul to make a difference.

Sam Winchester The CW 2

Sam has made so many sacrifices along the way and now he has to pass on a chance at romance with Eileen, but I have a feeling that all of Sam’s good work is going to pay off in the end.  When it comes to rooting for the good guys, Sam is the epitome of everything in this world that is worth fighting for.  Perhaps he should be taking care of the world rather than Chuck, keeping us all safe from monsters while showing love and understanding to others in need.

What’s next for Sam?  Well, we are pretty much back at square one now that Chuck is free, but Sam’s actions did matter, as Dean is the one to remind him that they will find a way.  Sam is the glue that keeps the Winchester family together and while it will be bitter sweet to say goodbye, I know that Sam is destined for great things.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 9: “I Hate Missing my Favorite Show”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 9, we learned that hope can be extremely powerful, but when you break that last remaining glimmer, is it truly gone forever?

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

In last night’s episode, “The Trap,” Chuck kidnaps Sam and Eileen and is determined to sever his connection with Sam once and for all.  Meanwhile, Dean and Castiel head to Purgatory to find the Leviathan Blossom, running into some threats along the way.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 9 are:

5

“All good things must come to an end.”

Sam wakes up to discover that Chuck is holding him and Eileen captive in a casino.  Chuck reminds Sam that they are still connected, which is keeping him trapped and weak.  Sam tries to stay strong, as Chuck begins to reveal his plan, hoping that Dean and Castiel can get to them before it’s too late.

4

“That’s the way we’ll save Sam and that’s the way we’ll save the world.”

Wise words indeed, Castiel.  After Eileen tries to call for help, Dean wants to rush in to save Sam, but Castiel reminds him not to be stupid.  He explains that they only have a small window to retrieve the Leviathan Blossom from Purgatory, which will save Sam and the rest of the world.

Dean will do anything to save his brother, but Castiel continues to be the voice of reason here, recognizing that sometimes sacrifice is necessary for the good of the world.

3

“This is gonna hurt her as much as it hurts you.”

As Chuck begins to reveal his plan, we learn that he used Eileen to spy on the Winchesters.  He forces Eileen to start cutting away at Sam’s wound against her will and by the end of the episode, Eileen is ready to part ways with Sam, not sure if anything is real.

However, Sam gives her a swoon-worthy kiss and tells her that it is real, but it looks like Eileen may be safer away from Sam right now until he is off Chuck’s radar.

2

“You don’t have to say it.”

After Dean and Castiel run into some threats in Purgatory and get separated, Dean takes a moment to himself to admit that he was wrong and to tell Castiel that he forgives him.  Later when they are reunited, Castiel tells him that he doesn’t have to say anything and that he heard his prayer, providing us with a heartwarming Destiel moment for sure!

1

“I will make it better.”

Chuck gives Sam the opportunity to see the future, as we get several glimpses from Sam’s perspective.  In this future world, all of their friends are dead or gone except for Jody and other Bobby, but this future is dark and hopeless, as even Dean begins to give up.

The watch Sam holds stops on December 9th 2022, as Chuck explains that this is the end of the line.  Sam watches in horror as he and Dean are turned into vampires and killed by their friend, but he tells Chuck that there has to be another way to make it better.

Chuck reminds Sam that without him, the monsters will devour the world and take over, giving Sam something to really think about.  When Dean and Castiel show up to save the day, Sam cannot go through with smashing the Leviathan Blossom, recognizing that he has to protect the world.

Chuck is ultimately set free by breaking Sam’s hope, so now we have that to worry about that.  Later on, Dean reminds him that they will not give up and they will find another way, as we are left with a huge cliffhanger at the end, flashing to Jack and Billie in The Empty.

Is Jack somehow the loophole to stop Chuck’s plan for good?  Can Sam and Dean re-write Chuck’s story or are they destined to repeat the memories of other Sams and Deans from alternate realities?

I’m confident that the Winchester brothers will be able to write their own stories, as we inch closer and closer to the end of our beloved series, but will it end the way we expect?

Stay tuned SPN family!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 14 episode 9: “Happy Holidays”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 9, I realized that the holidays are about hope, love, giving, and family.  But what happens when you lose that hope?  Are you lost forever or is there a sliver of it still dimming in the dark?   Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Spear,” Michael gathers his army in Kansas City and Garth attempts to work undercover, but is in way over his head.  Meanwhile, Sam and Dean split up to try and track down weapons that will hurt Michael.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 9 mid-season finale are:

 5

“Cookietacular is the secret password.”

In the beginning of the episode, Jack and Castiel have a heartwarming talk and we learn that Sam and Dean do not know about Castiel’s deal with “The Empty.”  Castiel tries to explain to Jack that they don’t need that burden.  He further reveals that “this life may be a lot of things, but it’s rarely happy.”  However, on the bright side, they do have “Crunch Cookie Crunch,” which actually looks pretty appetizing.  Castiel may think he has a lot of time left, but we know that “The Empty” will not stay gone for long.  It seems like everyone on the show wants to protect someone else from knowing the truth, but perhaps some openness can allow our favorite characters to prepare for the worst in advance?

“You put the only weapon we have against Michael in the mail?”

Ketch calls in to well…catch up and to also fill the Winchester brothers in on the status of the egg, which is a weapon that can harm Michael.  Everyone is very short on time, but Ketch decided to put this important weapon in the mail.  The post office is closed for the holidays, which gives Sam and Jack a chance to track it down before it winds up in the wrong hands, but they quickly realize that Michael is one step ahead of them.  Jack is captured by Michael and Sam is injured, which puts everyone on edge, as they realize that they are running out of time.  So, maybe the mail was not such a great idea.  Just saying Ketch.

“I gotta be on the winning side.”

Garth is back and is working undercover to help Sam and Dean fight Michael, but perhaps he is in a little bit over his head.  Michael recognizes Garth, but allows him to “volunteer,” which means that he will need to take Michael’s amped-up archangel grace.  Garth initially thinks that he can fool Michael, but is forced to swallow every last drop.  Later on, Garth’s transformation begins and he attacks Sam.  Sam is able to knock him out for now, but hopefully someone has a cure for him.  Either way, it’s always nice to see a familiar face on Supernatural.

2

“So if you’re not gonna give it to me…kill me.”

After Michael destroys the egg, there is only one weapon left that we know will harm Michael.  Dean tracks down other Kaia, who is not about to let her spear go without a fight.  Dean reasons with her and asks for her help and Kaia agrees.  Kaia wants something in return; however, and asks for Jack to open the door again so that she can return to her world.  Dean agrees without hesitation, even though we know that Jack has lost his powers, but I guess it’s one crisis at a time for now.

1

“Impossible odds…feels like home.”

After we learn that Michael’s plan is to turn every single person in Kansas City, our favorite characters are ready to face him and stop him once and for all.  Dean valiantly fights against Michael with the spear, but Michael knows exactly what he is doing.  In a twist, Michael possesses Dean again and destroys the spear.  He explains that he wanted to bury Dean and destroy every last inch of his hope.  Dean is gone and Michael now has an army waiting and ready for Michael’s signal, which is Dean snapping his fingers.  We will have to wait until January 17th for new episodes, but I am slightly disappointed that we are back to the possession story-line again.  While I knew that there had to be a reason for Michael letting Dean go, I feel like this has already been done.  It looks like Sam, Castiel, and Jack will need to tap into Dean’s mind to free him somehow, but I’m not that invested in this.  I’m hoping that we get some more campy horror fun and some screen time for Rowena and Nick/Lucifer.  Stay tuned for new episodes in the New Year!

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

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” season 9 episode 5: “I Found Them”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season 9 episode 5, the moment we have all been waiting for has finally arrived, but it’s not the moment we truly expected.  Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “What Comes After,” Rick is severely wounded and desperately tries to get away from the persistent walker horde following him, as he slips in and out of consciousness, crossing paths with his friends in the afterlife.  Meanwhile, Maggie finally faces Negan and Jadis continues to talk to the mysterious man on the helicopter.  Please note that my top moments will all feature Rick, although I would like to point out that Maggie’s conversation with Negan was truly significant.  My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 9 episode 5 are:

5

“Goddamn cowboy, you look like shit!”

Rick is still holding on, but is in immediate danger.  He desperately tries to stay awake, but his mind continues to slip somewhere else, allowing us the chance to catch up with some of our favorite old characters who are no longer with us.  First up…Shane!  Shane is my absolute favorite character of the entire series and I was devastated after his exit.  That being said, perhaps he knew that he was going to kick some serious ass as “The Punisher” so I guess it all worked out in the end.  Rick and Shane have always been like brothers and their reunion picks up right where they left off.  Shane even brings up Judith and asks, “How is my baby girl by the way?”  Shane has always been the “asshole,” but somehow their friendship is still natural and real despite all of the ugliness and drama between these two.  Rick is “looking for his family” and answers, but Shane reminds him to dig down and find the rage within him.  He tells Rick to wake up, as Rick continues to fight and try and escape the walkers that keep coming.  In a way, Shane represents that anger and rage that Rick has had to release on multiple occasions to stay alive.  While Rick has not always made the best decisions because of it, it allowed him to survive.  Perhaps he needed a reminder about that now.

4

“My girl, she’s strong and my grandson…he’ll only make her stronger.”

After scraping by the next obstacle, Rick continues on with his vision quest of sorts and is with Hershel on the farm.  The sun is absolutely breathtaking in the sky and everything seems so calm and peaceful here.  This scene was difficult to watch, especially since Scott Wilson recently passed away, but Rick has always looked to Hershel as his own kind of personal moral compass.  Hershel has always been wise and reminds Rick that Maggie will be OK on her own and tries to tell Rick that he only thinks he needs to find his family.  Hershel clearly represents loyalty and family to Rick, inspiring him with goodness and faith to keep going.

3

“You did your part like I did mine.”

After Rick flashes to some kind of afterlife, surrounded by corpses, he crosses paths with Sasha.  Sasha tries to remind Rick that he did his part and that every single one of them gives us strength.  Sasha further explains, “We help each other.  We make each other better and it never ends.”  Rick is still confused and says that it feels like the end to him, but Sasha reveals, “Little things do end, but it’s never the end of everything.  It’s about all of us.  Your family, they’re not lost.  And you are not lost.”  This part really resonated with me, as Sasha tries to get through to Rick about what it’s all about.  Life is about the people we care about and our actions do matter.  We can all continue to inspire one another and even when we’re gone, we can live on in memories and in the lives of those we have touched.

2

“Because you’re a fighter and you never give up.  Fight for me.”

After Rick’s horse finally abandons him, Rick continues on foot and tries to make it to the bridge.  He imagines all of his friends coming to his rescue, but he is there alone.  Rick creates a conversation with Michonne in his mind, who tells him that she loves him because he is a fighter and never gives up.  Michonne keeps Rick’s love and hope alive here, as he continues to stay true to himself and fight.  I was surprised that we did not see Carl, Glenn, or Lori at all, but I do think that each character we did see represented a part of Rick, reminding him about who he is and what he can still do.

1

“I found them.”

As Rick makes his way to the bridge, his friends now finally catch up to him and try to help him.  Daryl continues to keep the walkers away from Rick, one arrow at a time, and Michonne tries to run toward him, but Rick tries to tell them to stay away.  Rick spots the dynamite and knows what he must do to protect his family.  He lures the walkers on to the bridge and takes out his gun, staying true to who he is…a hero.  Rick blows up the bridge to save his friends and should have gone out in a blaze of glory.  Michonne and Daryl’s reactions were truly heartbreaking, as my own heart shattered as well.  However, there is always some kind of twist on TWD. Rick is somehow OK and washes up to Jadis, formerly known as Anne.  Jadis wants to help Rick because he has helped her in the past and tells the man in the helicopter that she has a “B.”  Again, what makes an “A” or a “B?”  I have no idea, but Rick is taken away on the helicopter and actually makes it out alive!

I don’t know about you, but I was actually really disappointed with this.  As much as I love Rick Grimes and want to see him alive, this sort of felt like a cop-out to me.  Rick had the chance to save all of his friends and leave this world as a true hero.  We know that Andrew Lincoln is leaving the show and will now appear in some Walking Dead movies so I guess that’s a positive, but where does that leave the series?  To make matters even more confusing, we get a time jump that shows bad-ass Judith saving people from walkers while wearing Carl’s hat.  While it’s great to see that she takes after her father and brother, I’m not sure I’m ready to invest in another time jump.  I kind of just want to follow that helicopter and see what’s going on with Rick.  Either way, the episode was done brilliantly and I appreciated the seamless transitions into Rick’s mind.  Rick will always be the very essence of this show for me.  We will all miss you Rick Grimes, but I guess we’ll see you soon in your movies!  Stay tuned!

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

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Purge” season 1 episode 9: “We All Need Each Other To Survive”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the USA network’s The Purge season 1 episode 9 last night, the voice over reminded us that “This is it.  Today’s the day.  Take the horror built up inside of you and spill it in the streets.  Will you spend this holiday locked in a cage afraid of your true potential?”  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “I Will Participate,” Joe puts everyone on trial, revealing that he is more dangerous than anyone might have realized.  Meanwhile, Miguel and Pete the Cop work together to track Joe down before it is too late.  My top 5 moments from The Purge season 1 episode 9 are:

5

“You are all here because you’ve wronged me.”

Ready to connect the dots?  Joe finally reveals his intentions when he explains that each one of his prisoners have wronged him in some way.  Pretty much everyone seems to recognize Joe when he takes off his mask and he explains that each one of them will be placed on trial.  Joe says, “I will exercise mercy if your confession is compelling.  But if not, I will purge and I will be reborn.”  Well at least it seems like Joe may be willing to listen to reason, but somehow I doubt it.  As the connections continue to reveal themselves, we learn that Jane went on a blind date with Joe, Rick remembers Joe installing their security system, and we later find out that Penelope made the fatal mistake of not saying “thank you” when Joe held a door open for her.  I mean that is definitely a pet peeve of mine, but I’m not sure it warrants Penelope’s death.  Either way, it’s becoming clear that Joe has quite a few screws loose and is not really one to let anything go.  We also learn that Joe has been using some kind of tracking spray that is used in the military to find his victims, which sort of explains how he knew where they would all be and his expertise on Rick and Jenna’s security system explains how he was able to deactivate it.  Well at least we are finally getting some answers.

4

“Don’t you feel better?”

Joe has a few other victims along with our main characters and we learn that he has been holding on to his rage for a very long time.  He has a man stand trial who bullied him back in high school.  Joe even brings up documentation such as pictures from his yearbook to make his case, which reveals that Joe has been planning this for a very long time.  I mean there are so many other things he could be doing with his time, but I guess everyone has a hobby.  The former bully actually makes a compelling case and seems sincere.  He tells Joe that he is homeless and perhaps that he is already undergoing his punishment in that way.  Joe seems to believe him and gives the man a hug, right before he sharply stabs him, killing him.  Joe says, “Like I said…mercy.”  Everyone else starts to realize that Joe’s idea of mercy does not involve letting them go.  They are not getting out of here easily.

3

“We are going to figure something out.”

Jane takes this time to introduce herself to Penelope and tells her and the others that they are going to figure something out, desperately trying to find a positive solution here.  Our main characters all have a common goal now…surviving.  Jane explains that “if we work together, we can take him.”  Jane’s leadership skills definitely come into play here, as she tries to come up with a plan and keep everyone motivated.  Another prisoner named Eileen is not ready to stick around; however, and rushes to the exit when she gets a chance.  Only Joe has the entire abandoned school rigged and she is shot as soon as she opens the doors.  Jane continues to try and keep the hope alive, but she needs to come up with something fast because she’s next.

2

“Let’s tackle this together like two professionals.”

I absolutely love the dynamic duo of Miguel and Pete the Cop.  After Penelope is taken, Pete the Cop agrees to finally emerge out into the streets during Purge Night to help Miguel.  Before they take off, Pete puts his cop skills to the test and pulls up information on Joe.  We find out that his full name is Joe Owens and they are even able to track down his address.  On the way, Miguel and Pete the Cop run into some trouble, as a group of Purgers demand some kind of trade in order for them to pass through.  Pete gets a free pass; however, as we learn that he is off limits during Purge Night.  Seriously don’t mess with Pete the Cop.  After running into Joe’s father at his home and taking a look at Joe’s extensive plan on the wall, they realize that they need to get to the school to find Penelope.  Only nothing comes easy for Miguel, as they are stopped on the way when Rex and his men open fire on their car, looking for revenge.  If anyone can get out of this OK, it’s Miguel and Pete the Cop.  As much as I adore Pete right now, I am wondering if we can truly trust him.  It initially seemed like Joe was a good guy as well so I wouldn’t be surprised if another twist is thrown our way, but I am hoping that Pete continues to try and help because I love this partnership.

1

“What a thing to live with…”

When Jane is brought up on trial, she stays composed and strong.  Jane tells Joe that she remembers him and we get a flashback that reveals her on a very awkward date with Joe.  Jane remains polite, as Joe continues to drop racist jokes along the way, but she can’t take it anymore after he implies that she got into college because of her race.  Jane has worked extremely hard for her opportunities and she is not going to let anyone take this away from her.  Jane says she has to go to the bathroom, but ends up skipping out on her date, but does pay for it.  Joe even has the receipt from the dinner as evidence.  Jane says what we are all thinking when she asks, “You tracked me down over a date?”  Jane is not about to back down now, but Joe tries to turn the tables on her by bringing up her own intention to purge David.  Jane explains that Purging will not make anyone feel better.  Jane says, “I tried to live my life with integrity.  I compromised who I am for a sexual predator.  What a thing to live with.”  Joe does not want to hear this, as he has made up his mind that it is his right to purge.  Jane fights back and everyone is rooting for her, but Joe ends up choking the life out of her.  Even though her life is over, Jane stayed true to who she was and finally stood up for herself after enduring so much and saying nothing over the years.  I am extremely proud of Jane, but I wish that she could have stopped Joe as well.  It looks like it is up to one of our other main characters, but who will be the one to take Joe down?  As Joe drags Jane’s body away, Penelope continues to keep the hope alive, revealing that Jane did not die for nothing.  She tried to motivate everyone and she succeeded, as they realize that they will all need to work together to stop Joe.  Stay tuned for the season finale next week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 4 episode 16 season finale: “We’re Coming For You”

Happy Tuesday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 4 episode 16 season finale, I think that John Dorie got it absolutely right when he says that “Some fish in this world you can’t catch no matter what you dangle in front of them.”  So do you leave them be or do you keep trying, even though you know what the outcome might be?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “…I Lose Myself,” we catch up with Al and witness her struggle to escape the walkers who are surrounding her at the parking garage at every corner.  Meanwhile, Morgan makes the decision to go after Martha alone, promising his friends that he will catch up to them, but they are all in for a threat that no one saw coming.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 4 episode 16 season finale are:

5

“I want you to give him a message.”

In the beginning of the episode, Al is surrounded by walkers and ends up in a parking garage near the hospital.  Al tries to get a message to Morgan and the others over the Walkie, but is not able to get through to them.  Martha catches up to Al; however, and unleashes poor zombie Jimbo on her, but Al is able to stop the immediate threat on her life.  However, she hesitates when faced against Martha, who knocks her out.  Martha later tells Al that she thinks she is strong and that she watched her tape.  She uses Al as a message for Morgan and includes a tape of her very own for him.  Even though Al is strong, she does still hold on to her humanity, which is the main reason why she hesitated when it came to eliminating Martha.  Luckily Al is all right for now, but that was a close call for sure.  Great to have you back Al!

4

“Leave them be.”

John Dorie gives Morgan some really strong advice about what to do about Martha, but Morgan insists on trying anyway.  During the entire season, I have been very touched by the strong friendship between John and Morgan.  John later radios out to Morgan that he is the strongest person he knows, remembering that he was there when Morgan was at his breaking point.  John may be the first person who really got through to Morgan after he left Alexandria and has become a strong motivator for him now.  John is a true believer and even though his own faith has been tested, he stays true to his positivism, which is infectious to everyone around him…in a good way.

3

“Have you seen the movie selection here?”

John and June finally have a moment together when they are browsing the shelves at the truck stop.  This gives June a sense of nostalgia and John teasingly comments that the movie selection is a bit lacking, however.  June finally opens up to John and lets her guard down, explaining that she was afraid that he would realize that she wasn’t who he thought she was.  John touches our hearts and souls when he says, “I know you.  Doesn’t take a whole day to recognize sunshine.”  As corny as it may sound, it is so true to who John Dorie is and you can’t help but smile here and cheer when these two finally embrace and share a passionate kiss.  It’s about time you two!

2

“You either kill me or I kill you.”

After watching Martha’s message, Morgan decides to go after her alone.  Morgan explains that he understands Martha because he used to be her.  He further reveals that she thinks killing is the only way, which is something that still haunts Morgan now.  Martha is severely injured and Morgan offers to help her.  He finds her at mile marker 54, lying next to her husband’s grave and Martha does open up to Morgan about her husband in the police car.  Martha reveals just a sliver of hope here, but she refuses to let Morgan make her be weak.  When Morgan tries to hand her the medicine, she attacks him and the car is run off the road.  Martha has been given so many chances, but Morgan is still not able to end her life.  Even after being badly injured himself, he tells himself that he has to keep going, especially when he learns that Martha has poisoned his friends by putting antifreeze in the drinking water.  Morgan comes very close to killing Martha, but spots the reflection of “I lose people…I lose myself,” written on his forehead.  Even though it was not Martha’s intention, this actually saved her life, as it was a reminder to Morgan about who he was before and who he can still be now.  Morgan chooses life and desperately tries to make it to his friends on foot before it’s too late.

1

“Hang in there.  We’re coming for you.”

Morgan finally gets through to his friends over the Walkie and June reveals that they need ethanol to counteract the antifreeze poisoning.  Luckily there is a truck filled with it right outside.  Seems simple enough, right?  Well we know that nothing comes easy on Fear TWD.  The group does a fantastic job of distracting the walkers and making it to the truck and Al unleashes her fury on the horde by opening fire on them.  Unfortunately, the truck begins leaking out the ethanol they need and it looks like all hope is lost.  Just when it seems like they are all running out of time for good, Morgan heroically shows up with Jim’s old beer truck, ready to help save his friends.  Sarah comments that Jimbo has saved their lives twice now.  Morgan eliminated walker Jimbo back at the police car, but hopefully he can rest in peace knowing that he truly did save his friends.  In a heartwarming moment, Victor also opens up to Alicia and is happy to finally have a new drinking partner, realizing that Madison would want it to be this way.  Morgan does ultimately head back to check on Martha and discovers her bloody arm hanging from the cuff.  Walker Martha is stumbling down the street and Morgan eliminates her as a threat once and for all.  So long Martha.  I can’t say that we’ll miss you.  Everyone is ready to head off to Virginia, but Morgan decides that he doesn’t want to go there anymore and takes them to the Denim Factor that “Polar Bear,” otherwise known as Clayton, used.  Morgan explains that no one is being forced to stay, but that they can truly do something great here.  Alicia adds that they can build this into something more and that’s how you help people, truly trying to reestablish her mother’s vision.  They decide to start with the tapes and find people out there who need their help, allowing Clayton’s work to continue on, holding on to the hope that there is still good in the world.  Even though it seems like they are surrounded by death and despair, Morgan and the others have learned the importance of helping others and that it does matter.  At the end of the episode, Morgan tells anyone who may be listening, “Hang in there.  We’re coming for you,” hopefully sparking the belief in anyone who may have lost their way.  The season finale ends on a positive note, rather than a major cliffhanger, which was actually refreshing.  The whole concept of helping others has been present during season 4 and this was the perfect way to honor that and inspire hope in fans everywhere that Morgan Jones and the rest of the group will continue to try and bring some life back into the world…one box at a time.  Stay tuned!
