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?

4

“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.

3

“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 “Supernatural” season 14 episode 8: “Take Me”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 8, I realized that it’s important for us to tip the scale toward doing the right thing.  Whether that means sacrificing something for someone you love or just being a good person in general, you never know what’s waiting for you on the other side of hell…or the empty.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Byzantium,” Jack appears to be lost for good, but Sam is not ready to let go just yet.  Meanwhile, Castiel makes the ultimate sacrifice.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 8 are:

5

“Tonight we get loaded.”

In the beginning of the episode, Jack is gone and Sam, Dean, and Castiel handle their grief in very different ways.  Sam is really impacted by the loss, but Dean recognizes that he needs his space and later suggests that they all “get loaded” to celebrate Jack.  This leads to a heartwarming moment, as our three favorite guys all take a few minutes to let loose and remember the good times with Jack.

4

“Something’s wrong.”

After Jack’s soul leaves his body, he detects that something is very wrong.  He walks through the familiar hallways of heaven, but some kind of darkness begins chasing him.  Remember the empty?  Well it’s back and looking for another angel to claim after Castiel managed to escape its wrath.  The empty will not stop until it obtains Jack and it doesn’t care what or who it destroys along the way, which puts all of heaven at risk.

3

“You got old…”

Lily Sunder returns, only she is a lot older now, which catches Dean slightly off guard.  Sam summons her, hoping that she can help decipher Kevin’s prophet tablet, but she is unable to do so.  That doesn’t mean that she is completely useless; however, as she is able to use her magic to resurrect Jack, but it does come with a price.  We learn that a small piece of Jack’s soul will be taken, which doesn’t seem like a big deal initially, but this is Supernatural.  We know that this will play a bigger part later on, but Sam and Dean are ready to accept any potential consequences to help Jack at this point.  Lily is looking to trade and is hoping to obtain a get into heaven free card in return, but it initially seems like this is not in the cards for her.  Lily later dies when she performs the ritual and does end up getting into heaven so that she can be reunited with her daughter, which reminds us that it’s never too late to do the right thing.

2

“I’m your son.”

When Jack’s soul is on the other side, he winds up in Kelly’s “best best memories” and gets the opportunity to meet his mother, which is a really touching moment.  Kelly is so happy to see Jack, but she also recognizes that he is too young to die and panics, explaining that Castiel promised to keep him safe.  Jack is ready to return to his body, understanding that his mother will be there waiting for him, but I think that this moment was really important for Jack.  Jack has been searching for so many answers about where he came from and he finally got the opportunity to have a moment with his mother, which is something that he will never forget.  Let’s just hope that missing piece of his soul doesn’t turn him on a path of darkness and destruction…

1

“Take me.”

After we learn that the empty has returned, Castiel recognizes that this is both a threat to heaven and to Jack.  Castiel makes a dangerous deal with the empty and offers to take Jack’s place.  The empty is clearly still very interested in claiming Castiel and accepts.  Castiel is ready to turn himself over, but the empty explains that it is not ready to take him and that it will wait until Castiel is truly happy before ripping him away from everything he cares about.  We don’t know when the empty will return, but Castiel may not be able to get out of this one.  Either way, his courage is commendable and he is willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good.  Jack returns to his body and is reunited with his family and Castiel is informed about Michael’s location.  What’s next for Sam and Dean?  Well they still need to track down dark Kaia and stop Michael somehow, but I’m hoping to get some more fun episodes along the way, similar to the Halloween one.  We could use some good old fashioned Winchester fun for sure.  Stay tuned!

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.

3

“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.

2

“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.

1

“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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” season 9 episode 8 Mid-Season Finale: “There’s A Storm Coming”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season 9 episode 8 Mid-Season Finale, we were presented with some legitimately creepy scenes that had me on the edge of my seat.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Evolution,” Daryl, Jesus, Aaron, and Dog go out looking for Eugene, but find a walker herd that is nowhere near normal.  Meanwhile, the new characters try to earn their keep and Negan’s world is about to change.  My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 9 episode 8 Mid-Season Finale are:

5

“We’re a solid looking group.”

In the beginning of the episode, Michonne continues to escort the new characters to Hilltop, but we know that trust is not so easily earned.  Tara seems willing to give the new characters a shot, but reminds them that they will need to earn their keep.  I have to admit that I am actually looking forward to getting to know the new characters now.  A lot of them seem to have potential and perhaps they can liven things up just a little bit.  I mean anything is more interesting than Henry being peer pressured by the “cool kids” at Hilltop.

4

“It’s good we’re here.”

After Michonne learns that Carol is at Hilltop too and Daryl is not far away, Tara points out that “it’s like the gang’s back together.”  A lot has clearly changed; however, as Carol initially doesn’t seem that thrilled to see Michonne.  Carol still seems to believe in a better world and building a community, but Michonne reminds her that they are living in a broken world and that they have to take care of their own.  I am still wondering what happened to Michonne to make her so jaded and untrusting of everyone?

3

“They have no idea what they’re dealing with.”

With almost perfect timing, Rosita wakes up and freaks out when she finds out that Daryl and the others went after Eugene.  Rosita explains that they don’t know what they are dealing with and she’s absolutely right.  After finding Eugene in the barn, he tries to explain his own theories on the potential evolution of the walkers and says that he heard them whispering.  Daryl doesn’t really know what to make of this until he witnesses this behavior on his own, but it doesn’t change the fact that they are all in serious danger right now.

2

“I loved the shit out of TV when that was a thing.”

I hear you on that Negan!  It initially seemed like we were just going to get some more banter between Negan and another character.  Negan gives Gabriel a hard time about Rosita and even tries to plant some doubt in his head to provide himself with some entertainment that doesn’t involve him throwing a ball at a wall.  After all, “all work and no play makes Negan a dull villain.”  After Gabriel gets upset about Rosita, Negan’s jail cell is carelessly left slightly open and Negan takes his first steps out into the open.  Freedom looks good on you Negan.

1

“Let’s get em…”

Daryl stands alone to give the others a chance to get Eugene out of there, but he does have Dog by his side, who is starting to be my favorite character.  Seriously do not let anything happen to this dog.  Daryl tries to create a distraction, but the herd of walkers continues to go after Eugene and the others.  It’s almost like they could sense that Daryl’s distraction was a trap and the storm has now arrived, providing us with the perfect ominous soundtrack.  Eugene and the others wind up in a beyond creepy cemetery, which I have to say was kind of brilliant.  I have not been scared on TWD for quite some time and I actually felt a bit nervous during this scene, especially when the characters were surrounded by whispers.  Michonne and some of the new characters show up to help get them out of the cemetery and Jesus tries to hold off the walkers with his impressive ninja skills.  Everything is happening so fast, but we do cut to a scene in slow motion, as one of the walkers stabs Jesus with his knife and whispers, “You are where you do not belong.”  Poor Jesus has drawn the short stick in this shocking moment.  Daryl discovers that the killer was actually a human with a walker mask to make things even more complicated.  “The Whisperers” have arrived and are a new and dangerous threat.  Overall, I thought that the episode delivered in the last fifteen minutes.  However, there was so much fluff surrounding it.  I seriously don’t care about Henry and his teen adventures.  We have several new setups for the second half of the season, which I am looking forward to explore.  So what can we expect from the second half of season 9?  I’m hoping that we abandon the unnecessary fluff and focus on “The Whisperers,” Negan, the “X” marks, and the past of the new characters.  New episodes return in February.  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 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.

3

“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?

1

“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!

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 “Supernatural” season 14 episode 6: “Pie Is Important”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 14 episode 6, I learned that it’s really never easy to give “the talk,” but Dean somehow manages to give the Cliff Notes version, while also reminding us about the importance of pie along the way.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Optimism,” Dean agrees to take Jack out on a case and Jack learns about “courting.”  Meanwhile, Sam and other Charlie work together in Tennessee and Sam tries to help her open up to him.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 14 episode 6 are:

5

“Nobody comes to the library anymore.”

So sad, right?  In the beginning of the episode, we meet a young woman named Harper.  Harper seems to have a natural glow of positivism around her and she absolutely adores surrounding herself with books.  A girl after my own heart.  Only this is Supernatural and we know that something is about to go horribly wrong.  After agreeing to dinner, her future date named Winston is brutally attacked outside the library.  It looks like someone will be on the case soon, but I have to say that I was immediately drawn in to this mystery.

4

“Maybe I’m allergic to sitting around doing nothing.”

Jack stumbles across this case and is eager to check it out.  Even though Sam has expressed some concern about Jack going out on cases, Dean agrees to let him tag along.  Jack is more than excited and explains that they can be “hunting buddies,” but clearly he has a lot to learn, as Dean reminds him not to call it that.  It looks like there is a new dynamic duo on the case!

“So we got creative…cool.”

While Dean and Jack go off to check out the case, Sam is in Tennessee with other Charlie and they get into a sticky situation.  During the episode, Sam tries to get other Charlie to open up to him, who doesn’t seem particularly thrilled to be out hunting, even though she is quite good at it.  Charlie doesn’t seem like she wants to talk about anything initially, but does end up opening up to Sam about the love of her life.  While it’s great to have Charlie back, I’m still having some issues connecting with her and other Bobby.  It doesn’t seem like anyone on this show really stays dead unless they end up on another show like Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but I almost wish they would bring back someone like Crowley instead.  Fast forward to Sam and other Charlie fighting some kind of bug creature and other Charlie gets some serious goo all over her, which lightens the mood a little bit.

“It’s a little game we play.”

After Dean and Jack try to help Harper, we learn that Harper actually comes from a line of Necromancers.  Harper has raised her high school boyfriend from the dead and they get off on playing twisted games with innocent suitors.  Unfortunately, Jack has just stepped into that role, but luckily he has Dean by his side to back him up.

“Pie is important.”

If you are looking to take away any lesson from this episode, it’s that “pie is important.”  Just kidding.  Jack has his first real encounter with love and panics when he realizes that he doesn’t know too much about “courting” or sex.  Dean hilariously tells him that he will give him “the talk” later, but is upset when Jack refers to him as an old man.  At the end of the episode, they are able to stop Harper’s dead boyfriend, but Harper makes it out and writes a stalker-like love letter to Jack.  Only Jack has bigger things to worry about, as Dean discovers that Jack is coughing blood and ends up unconscious.  What’s wrong with Jack?  Will the Winchester brothers be able to save him?  Also, are we going to eventually circle back to Nick?  Either way, I enjoyed this episode more than episode 5 and I appreciated the unlikely partnership between Dean and Jack.  Let’s hope that they can help him before it’s too late.  Stay tuned!

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!

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 “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:

“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.”

“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!

“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.

“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!
