Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” season 10 episode 8: “I Cannot Die”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season 10 episode 8 mid-season finale, I thought about how Dante said, “We are selfish, we are brutal,” but can you really say that all kindness is gone from humanity?  Our characters are proof that a glimmer of goodness still exists, but let’s hope that glimmer is enough to get them through what comes next.  Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.

In last night’s episode, “The World Before,” Alpha’s plan involving Dante is revealed, as Rosita makes a shocking discovering of her own.  Meanwhile, Carol continues to hunt down leads on Alpha’s horde and Michonne and Judith meet a new stranger.

My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 10 episode 8 mid-season finale are:

5

“You have a special place among us.”

After the shocking reveal in last week’s episode, we now learn more about Alpha’s plan involving Dante.  Dante was the one who painted “Silence the Whispers,” he tampered with the drinking water, and even smothered poor Cheryl with a pillow.

Alpha wanted to use paranoia to push the group into bad decisions and Dante apparently wants a public reckoning to be heard now, but I’m not sure that our group is willing to listen to anything he has to say…

4

“I cannot die!”

Rosita is the one who discovers what Dante has done, as he tries to attack her as well, but our girl Rosita kicks some serious ass and stabs him.  I felt so bad for her when she had to put down undead Siddiq before he began snacking on poor baby Coco and this event clearly traumatized her.  I can’t say that I blame her.

Rosita finally gets some well deserved screen time during this episode.  For a while now, she has appeared in transitional and filler scenes, but she now steps into the spotlight, going beyond the gates to take out some walkers to channel some of this rage brewing inside of her.

Eugene shows up and saves her, as reality strikes her with the possibility that she can die, which now scares her more than anything because she doesn’t want to leave baby Coco behind.  This moment of vulnerability was truly moving, as it developed Rosita’s character even more.

I thought Rosita showed so much strength and emotion in this episode and I would like to see her channel this in future episodes to really embrace the warrior within.  Perhaps this is the wake-up call she needed and romance may not be off the table for her and Eugene after all…

3

“Do we deserve a second chance?”

Well, apparently Gabriel doesn’t think so.  Gabriel really takes Dante’s betrayal hard and starts studying old video tapes of him, clearing blaming himself for thinking that he was a good person.  This is not the first time we have seen Gabriel face an internal dilemma, but he almost shuts down completely here and even keeps his distance from Rosita, holding on to his guilt.

Gabriel speaks with Dante and decides to go crazy on him, killing him in his cell.  While I understand Gabriel’s actions and motive, I started to wonder if perhaps Alpha’s plan is working, as paranoia and guilt are now conquering the goodness that they have all been working so hard to achieve.

How will this impact Gabriel’s relationship with Rosita?  Will he have doubts about his decision?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like a darkness has emerged within him and I don’t think this is going to be the last time we see him tap into it.

2

“My mercy prevails over my wrath.”

After a fun library adventure with Michonne, Judith, and Luke, they stumble across a stranger who saves Luke and then runs away.  To quote Luke, “Who does that?!”

When they reach Oceanside, they stumble across the stranger again, as Michonne and Judith make an incredible tag team.  We learn that the stranger’s name is Virgil and he claims he is just trying to go home to his family.

He talks about mercy and this clearly strikes a chord with Michonne, remembering that both Siddiq and Rick used to say something similar.  This sparks something within Michonne and she agrees to help Virgil by taking him on a boat back to the island where he lives, Bloodsworth Island.  Apparently, this is some kind of fortified island and he agrees to give Michonne weapons, which would definitely help them create an advantage against The Whisperers.

Michonne tells Judith that she will see her soon and says she can reach out to her on the Walkie whenever she wants, but you have to wonder if this is the set-up for Michonne’s departure on the show?

Perhaps she will find evidence here that Rick is still alive?  Either way, I’m anxious to find out more about this island.  Let’s hope that we can trust Virgil.

1

“You want her dead so bad, you don’t even care what happens to you.”

Carol continues to act first and think later, but Daryl tries to talk some sense into her.  He tells her that he feels like he is talking to a ghost and reminds her that he is the one she should confide in.  Daryl tells her that she has to try and that Alpha isn’t worth it and that they have a future, which was a heartwarming moment to witness.

It seems like Daryl gets through to Carol, but she immediately shifts gears when she spots Alpha across the tree line, running straight for her without thinking once again.

Carol’s need for revenge now endangers the rest of her group, as they all end up trapped in some kind of cave surrounded by Alpha’s walker horde.

In a previous episode, Lydia reminded Carol that her mother thrives on manipulation and that’s exactly what she did here.

Will our characters be able to make it out of here alive?

They are certainly in a dangerous situation, but it looks like Gamma (formerly known as Mary) might be switching sides to help our group.

Overall, I thought this was a solid mid-season finale, but I would have liked to see some screen time for both Negan and Lydia, but it looks like we will be catching up with them more when new episodes return in February!  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” season 10 episode 7: “Open Your Eyes”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season 10 episode 7, Siddiq may have had “miles to go before he sleeps,” but he does still have promises to keep.  The truth can be a dangerous thing, but once all of the pieces are put together, what else will be revealed?  Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.

In last night’s episode, “Open Your Eyes,” Siddiq’s flashes finally come together, as we learn the truth behind them.  Meanwhile, Carol attempts to get some answers out of her prisoner and Lydia makes a choice.

My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 10 episode 7 are:

5

“Alpha drew a line and you need to choose what side you’re on.”

That may be so, but Carol also needs to remember that Lydia is more than a potential weapon against Alpha.  She’s also a person and Daryl reminds her that she’s been through enough.  That being said, Lydia does share some information with Carol about her mother using manipulation as a strategy.

She explains that if The Whisperers see a place like Alexandria, another way to survive will be revealed and it could destroy everything Alpha has worked so hard to put in place for them.

Lydia reminds Carol that “an idea like that is dangerous” and that it could spread.  The idea of hope can spread quicker than any threat or sickness, but will Carol and the others be able to execute this plan effectively?

We’ll have to see how this turns out, but it’s clear that Lydia may be the key to all of this.

4

“He is one of them.”

Our forbidden Romeo and Juliet story continues, as Aaron and Gamma continue to meet together and bond.  Aaron tells Gamma about his daughter and family, but Gamma has trouble opening up about her own sister.

It’s clear that Gamma is having second thoughts, recognizing the potential for goodness through Aaron, but Alpha whips her back into reality.

Although all bets might be off now that Gamma knows that Lydia is alive…

Will Gamma be the one to truly turn the tables on Alpha?  Will Aaron get caught in the crossfire?  I can’t wait to find out, but I think that Gamma’s character has a lot of potential and I’m waiting for her to do something truly significant.

3

“He bleeds until he answers.”

Carol means business, but she decides to first start off with some bread and jam.  After the prisoner spits it back in her face, Carol is not playing nice anymore and shows off her potential skills as a torturer.

Daryl gets in on the action as well, but it looks like the prisoner is going to remain loyal to Alpha until the end, but Carol realizes that exposing that Lydia is alive might get him to talk.

Of course the prisoner dies before this can happen, as Dante tells Siddiq that he packed the wrong bag, which led to his untimely demise.

So much for that…

2

“I choose mine!”

After Carol brings Lydia to the line, revealing her to Gamma, Lydia realizes that Carol has been using her and tells her that she is just like her mother.

She may have a point here, as Carol is just acting without really thinking things through.  Lydia decides to choose her own side and runs off, but where can she really go now?

It’s not like she can go back to her mother, but she’s not exactly safe out in the woods either…

Is she going to look for Negan?  Will he be able to help her now that he is with The Whisperers?

Let’s hope that Daryl and Dog can help find her because Lydia is one of my favorite characters on the show and I would be devastated if we lost her.

1

“Open your eyes…”

This episode was jam-packed with a lot, but the scenes with Siddiq stole the show.  We have been getting bits and pieces of Siddiq’s flashes sprinkled across each episode and they all led to this moment.

The guilt is clearly getting to Siddiq, as he even jumps in the water to find some kind of escape, but Rosita jumps in after him and he finally takes a moment to confide in her.

Siddiq explains that he blames himself for what happened because he simply did nothing and watched his friends die.  Rosita tries to remind him that he has people who truly love him and that he is not alone, which was a touching moment between them.

Toward the end of the episode, Dante goes to see Siddiq to see how he is doing and Siddiq hears a clicking sound Dante is making, which triggers back the missing pieces.

It is revealed that Dante is a Whisperer and he is the one who held Siddiq back and made him watch his friends die.  Siddiq tries to keep his cool with this revelation, but it’s too late, as Dante kills him in a shocking and heartbreaking scene.

Dante seems like he did truly care about Siddiq in some kind of sick and twisted way, but he does what he has to, realizing that Siddiq will expose him.  Siddiq is also the only one who has realized that the water may be making people sick, which is another reason why Dante needs to eliminate him.

RIP Siddiq.

You will be missed!

Now that we know that Dante is an undercover Whisperer, who will be the one to unmask him…or I guess put the mask back on?

Will Rosita be able to get justice for Siddiq’s death?

Overall, this was a shocking and revealing episode.  All of the pieces are coming together now, but let’s hope that Siddiq’s death was not in vain.  Stay tuned for the mid-season finale next week!

My performance of the week ending 11/9/19 on TV goes to…

Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan on AMC’s The Walking Dead

I’ve been waiting so long for Negan to do something earth-shattering and it looks like he has finally returned.

Whether you love him or love to hate him, Negan is one of the best villains I have ever witnessed on any television show.  His actions are ruthless and he has killed some of our beloved characters and yet he still manages to find a way to be charismatic, thought-provoking, and absolutely hilarious.

Over the seasons, Negan has been on this journey toward redemption and the dynamic between him and the Grimes family is a major part of that.  Negan is not completely bad and he has proven that there is this potential within him to do good, but it can’t completely wipe his slate clean either.

In the previous episodes, Negan really bonded with Lydia and I think it’s because he knows all too well what it means to be looked at as an outsider and the enemy.  No matter how hard you try to do the right thing to fit in, you will always be the first one blamed for anything that goes wrong.

Negan’s past actions are beyond forgivable, but I also can’t ignore the anti-hero emerging within him either.  I think that’s why I was so captivated by his performance in season 10, episode 5.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you are not up-to-date on the series.

In this episode, Negan’s chance at goodness is brutally ripped away from him when his number one fan, Brandon, decides to murder an innocent family.  Negan kills Brandon and the big bad wolf returns, as he grabs his new Lucille and leather jacket, ready to cross into The Whisperer territory with nothing to lose.

Except he did lose something, suddenly realizing that he isn’t going to get the chance to be a hero and that the darkness from his past actions will always follow him.

Is Negan going to be working with the enemy or is this his opportunity to truly make a difference and stop Alpha once and for all?  I can’t ignore the setup here, but I also know that Negan has been broken after this moment with Brandon.

He can’t really blame Brandon because he is the cause of his actions in a way, but does that mean that he can only be a villain in the end or is there another way?

While I love Negan as a villain, I feel like he has grown so much over the seasons and I would like to see him thrive as a bad-ass anti-hero.  That doesn’t mean that he needs to always do or say the right thing, but I think that Alpha is a worthy foe and only Negan or Carol really have the potential, or the motivation, to take her down.

What’s next for Negan?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like he will be tested by Alpha and Beta.  I’m interested to see how he does and what their conversations will look like, especially since we know that Negan is no stranger to manipulation.

Either way, I’m excited to see some well deserved screen time for Negan’s character and I can’t wait to see what he does next.  I’ve been very impressed with season 10 so far and Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s performance is a major part of that!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

My performance of the week ending 6/29/19 on TV goes to…

Zachary Quinto as Charlie Manx on AMC’s NOS4A2.  Even though I have mixed feelings on this series so far, I have been extremely impressed by Zachary Quinto’s performance. It’s like he was born to play the perfect villain and this role allows him to explore this further, creeping us out as an old man and as a vampire.  Even though he will always be Sylar from Heroes for me, it seems like this role was made for him and I’m excited that he is finally getting some well deserved screen time, as we were only seeing glimpses of his potential in the first few episodes of the show.  Please note that I have not included any major spoilers for your convenience. 

I have always been a fan of Zachary Quinto, but it really takes an actor of extraordinary talent and range to basically take on two extreme roles at once, while capturing our undivided attention.  Sure, he is Charlie Manx young and old, but he brings different elements to the character.  I found myself being lured to Christmasland along with the children because there is something so hypnotic about his portrayal, which makes him a very dangerous villain.  I am intrigued by our heroine, Vic McQueen, as well, but I’m not sure that I would be invested in the show at all without Zachary Quinto.  He is just perfection and he creates these bone-chilling creepy moments that seem so natural for him.  In fact, you almost forget that he is an actor playing a role.

What’s next for Charlie Manx?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like we will finally get some type of showdown between our new favorite villain and our female protagonist.  Manx vs. McQueen….place your bets now!  It’s always interesting when you see the good vs. evil setup created and yet you are still far more invested in the evil side of things.  Charlie Manx may be a monster, but he also has charisma, using manipulation strategically to enlist the help of other lost souls.

If he were just simply a vampire devouring small children, I’m not sure that we would be interested at all, but his thought provoking conversations during the car rides take us along for the journey, bringing us that much closer to the dark side.  I’m personally leaning toward evil on the show because it is a lot more interesting, but I can’t wait to see what Charlie Manx does next!  Which side will you wind up on?  

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

My performance of the week ending 6/15/19 on TV goes to…

Richard Harmon as John Murphy on The 100.  He may fly under the radar sometimes, but one should never underestimate John Murphy, played brilliantly by the charismatic Richard Harmon.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  Murphy has always been a survivor, but he doesn’t always make the most popular decisions.  We have witnessed a huge character transformation; however, as the selfish and conniving character has truly become an anti-hero that you desperately want to root for. 

Even though Bellamy maintains the moral compass for the group, Murphy is always one step ahead and proves to be smart and strategic with his plans.  You never know what you are going to get with Murphy, as he can easily switch sides, but that’s what makes me love his character.  He’s essentially a con man, but he is so smooth and convincing and he knows how to adapt in every situation, making him one of the most compelling characters on the series for me.

In season 6, Murphy saw something when he died for a few moments, which has clearly made him uneasy.  We still don’t know exactly what he saw, but it has kicked his survival instinct into high gear.  Murphy is never afraid to say what everyone else is thinking and he doesn’t care who he pisses off.  Josephine Lightbourne may think that she has everything under control with her own manipulation, but she should watch out.  Even though she has been around for a very long time, she is no match for John Murphy, who “takes big swings” and plays an impressive game for sure!

What’s next for Murphy? I’m not sure, but it will be interesting to see which side he ends up on.  Murphy seems intrigued by the idea of immortality, but he has gone through so much with Bellamy and the others and I have a hard time believing that he will turn his back on them completely.  Murphy is always a wild card, but he is so entertaining to watch and Richard Harmon’s portrayal of him is incredible.  It’s not always easy playing the bad guy, but he does so with flair and I have been a fan of his since the very first season.  I can’t wait to see what he does next!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” season 1 episode 1: A Solid Series Premiere

“Welcome to Beacon Heights University, where excellence is not an option…it’s a requirement.”  After watching Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists season 1 episode 1, I remembered why I fell in love with Pretty Little Liars in the first place.  It’s hard for a spin-off to gives fans that sense of nostalgia, while still creating a unique voice of its own, but I have already been hooked after the first episode and I can’t wait to see the new mystery unfold.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s “Pilot” episode, Alison DiLaurentis gets a fresh start and takes on a TA position at Beacon Heights University, but is quickly reunited with our favorite troublemaker, Mona Vanderwaal.  Meanwhile, we meet several of Alison’s new students who may wind up being the prime suspects in a new murder and Alison’s presence here reminds us that nothing is ever a coincidence for a Pretty Little Liar alum.  My top 5 moments from Pretty Little Liars:  The Perfectionists  season 1 episode 1 are:

5

“We are and then we’re not.”

After Alison comes to town and is reunited with Mona, it looks like both of our favorite characters from Pretty Little Liars are in desperate need of a fresh start.  We learn the fate of Alison and Emily’s relationship, as Alison explains that Emily had trouble getting over the past.  Does that mean that Alison and Emily will never get back together?  Not necessarily, as they are tied together by a family, but it looks like this relationship has been put on pause for now.  Alison wants to leave the mean girl behind her and truly wants to help her students and make a difference, but wherever Alison goes, drama is never too far behind.

4

“Is it OK to murder a murderer?”

An interesting question for sure and I have to say that I was actually really digging Alison’s lecture.  Can I sign up for her class?  As Alison gets to know her new students, she asks them to participate in a discussion on Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, which is actually quite fitting if you think about it.  We are introduced to several new characters and quickly learn that everyone is a suspect and that appearances can be very deceiving.  No one really stood out to me just yet, but I’m looking forward to seeing their characters explored further as the series continues.

3

“Try and stay away from him.”

Perhaps the most disliked new character is Nolan Hotchkiss, who seems to be the resident bad boy on campus.  Alison notices that Nolan is a lot like how she used to be, using manipulation and blackmail to get what he wants, but there also seems to be a lot of complicated drama with his family as well.  We learn that his sister, Taylor, apparently committed suicide about a year ago and that Nolan’s mother, Claire, played by the amazing Kelly Rutherford, seems interested in Alison because she reminds her of her daughter.  Mona says that by her calculations, Nolan could be dangerous, but can we really trust Mona here?  What other connections does Alison have to the Hotchkiss family?  I’m not sure, but I’m already intrigued enough to find out more.  I’m loving this setup so far!

2

“I know a little bit about manipulation.”

Maybe way more than a little bit, Alison, but it appears that you have truly changed, but the past has a way of dragging you backwards sometimes.  We soon learn that Taylor is actually alive, as Nolan goes to visit her secretly.  So why did she fake her own death and what is the bigger play here?  There seems to be quite an emphasis on the advanced security system on campus, so have the Hotchkiss siblings uncovered something behind that or is there another mystery yet to be revealed?  Alison also finds a picture of Taylor and the resemblance is striking, so is it possible that Alison could be related to Taylor?  Toward the end of the episode, Alison uncovers a message behind the wallpaper in Taylor’s old room that says, “They’re Watching,” which furthers my theory on the security issue, but there is still a lot to uncover here.

1

“There are no coincidences.”

Alison recognizes that there are definitely no coincidences.  After all, she comes from Rosewood.  Alison asks Mona why she is here, but it looks like this all needs to be put on hold, as we find out that Nolan has been brutally murdered at the end of the episode.  Nolan is found impaled on a fence, as everyone gathers around in horror.  All of his friends quickly become suspects and so our murder mystery begins.  However, we are left with another cliffhanger at the end, as Mona starts talking to herself and asking if this was her fault and has someone in her ear piece.  Is Mona actually working for the FBI or some kind of secret agency?  I mean, we know that Mona is extremely intelligent and qualified so perhaps her recruiter position is just a cover.

Either way, I am already completely hooked and I can’t wait to find out what happens next.  The spin-off series premiere really gave Pretty Little Liar fans exactly what they needed, but I am really enjoying the college campus change of scenery and I think this will give Alison and Mona the chance to shine, while introducing us to some new faces who may surprise us.  Stay tuned!

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

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Passage” season 1 episode 4: “Show Me The Real You”

Happy Tuesday TV fans!  After watching Fox’s The Passage season 1 episode 4, I realized that even if “you know what’s best,” can you really trust yourself when your dreams are being invaded by the overwhelmingly creepy Dr. Fanning?  Are the subjects in Project Noah still connected to their own thoughts and desires or are they now merely instruments of destruction?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Whose Blood Is That?” we dive deeper into Anthony Carter’s past, as Fanning continues to bring him over to the dark side.  Meanwhile, Shauna pays Amy a visit, Brad tries to do the right thing, and Dr. Lear may have just been contaminated.  My top 5 moments from The Passage season 1 episode 4 are:

5

“I got skills.”

During the episode, Brad and Amy continue to connect, as Brad is determined to protect Amy no matter what.  Amy shows one of her first signs of advancing when she and Brad are on the run and she is able to sprint in front of him with no real effort.  While we still don’t know exactly how the serum will impact Amy, it’s clear that she is already showing signs, but will she have the same fate as the patients who came before her or is she transforming into something else?  Something even more dangerous?  We’ll have to wait and see.

4

“We need to go now.”

We continue to catch up with Lila and Lacey, who are trying to get the story out to anyone who will listen.  A reporter actually seems interested in running with the story, but they learn that she was killed later on.  Lila is shocked, but Lacey recognizes the potential threat immediately and tells Lila that they need to go now, which suggests that they will be determined a threat to Project Noah as well.  Luckily, Lila has Lacey to protect her, although they may need some backup pretty soon.

3

“Let me help you.”

During this episode, Brad tries to get through to Agent Paulson, who has clearly been impacted by the nightmares.  Brad remains calm in the situation even though Agent Paulson has a gun and it seems like he is getting through to him until Clark decides to take him out and eliminate the threat.  Clark has already been questioned about letting Shauna live, but he does not even take a second to think about eliminating a fellow agent.  Is there any hope for Clark or will he continue to spiral out of control?

2

“Show me the real you.”

Shauna pays Amy a visit, well a mental visit, and tries to begin manipulating her, but Amy is well aware of what is right and what is wrong.  Amy tells Shauna, “I’m nothing like you,” but Shauna is convinced that she is and reminds her that “fighting only makes it harder.”  We know that Fanning is very interested in Amy’s presence and that Amy could be the key to stopping this threat, but it looks like she will continue to deal with obstacles along the way.  This is a very tough little girl; however, and one should not underestimate her.

“Open up your heart, Anthony.”

During the episode, we get a glimpse into Anthony Carter’s past.  We see his past relationship with Rachel and learn that Carter was framed for her death.  Carter already feels so much guilt about what happened to her and he loved her very much, but Fanning uses this vulnerability to his advantage.  He reminds Anthony that “love without power is misery.”  At the end of the episode, Carter is in danger of dying, but ultimately makes his choice and accepts the monster within.  Carter attacks someone in the lab and relishes in his first real kill as a vampire, as Dr. Lear watches in horror, just barely scraping by himself.  Although Dr. Lear may have a new problem now, as he realizes that he has someone else’s blood on him.  Does this mean that Dr. Lear has been contaminated?  We’ll have to wait and see. 

Overall, the episode did not draw me in the same way that episode 3 did, as it almost felt like a transition or setup for what’s to come.  I think that we still have a lot in play here and I am interested to see what happens next.  I’m hoping that episode 5 will get us back on track with the fast paced tempo of the previous three episodes, although I do feel that the background story for Anthony was revealing.  It’s interesting to see how both Carter and Shauna were betrayed and hurt in the past, allowing Fanning to manipulate their weaknesses into an illusion of power.  Fanning may not be powerful on his own as Patient Zero, but it’s clear that he is building an army and they may become unstoppable.  Stay tuned!

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 “Riverdale” season 3 episode 11: “The Red Dahlia”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Riverdale season 3 episode 11, I learned that “it’s not what things are, it’s what they appear to be.”  But when everyone in town is holding on to a secret, it’s hard to know who to trust.  After all, “no one’s innocent in crime town.”  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Chapter Forty-Six:  The Red Dahlia,” Riverdale embraces the noir genre, as Jughead Jones tries to uncover the secrets in town.  Meanwhile, Archie continues to spiral out of control, Veronica is determined to find out who tried to kill her father, and Hermione Lodge proves to be a femme fatale you do not want to mess with.  My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 3 episode 11 are:

5

“A safe place as long as you know the safe word.”

I wonder if the safe word is “syrup.”  Penelope Blossom has been trying to get her brothel up and running in Riverdale for quite some time, but it looks like she is starting off with her secret sex club, “The Maple Club.”  Betty and Jughead uncover it while they are looking for information on Hiram’s mistress and get a lot more than they bargained for when they witness what is going on here behind closed doors.  While I’m not too sure on the scenery here, it’s nice to see some screen time for our couple, Bughead, as they get back to their roots and try to get to the bottom of the mystery in front of them.

4

“Well played, Miss Veronica.”

During the episode, Veronica embraces the noir genre and her fashion is on point, complete with an elegant hat, as she goes to hire Jughead Jones to find out who tried to have her father killed.  After confronting her mother, Veronica discovers her mother’s connection to the Fizzle Rocks drug fiasco and decides to have the drugs destroyed once and for all.  This may not have been the wisest decision, as Hermione is far from pleased, but Veronica reminds us that she is very capable and has been paying great attention to both her mother and father for quite some time.  At the end of the episode, Veronica no longer wants to find out the information, but is she perhaps a little bit too good at being a Lodge?  After all, manipulation seems to run in the family, but we’ll have to see what our girl Veronica does next.

3

“I’m going to face and kill one more demon.”

Archie continues to abuse alcohol and Fred is not pleased, as he reminds him that “this does not solve your problems.”  Archie receives some unexpected advice from Josie, which is actually spot on.  Josie talks to him about dealing with his demons head on, but Archie decides that he needs to finally face Hiram Lodge after all this time.  After initially going to shoot Hiram, Archie ends up saving his life and the two make a deal to stay away from one another.  But can you really ever make a trustworthy deal with the devil?  Archie listens to Josie and decides that he wants to channel his anger into boxing and start playing music again, which seems to be a step in the right direction.  Thanks Josie!

2

“You’re not so innocent, Betty.”

After talking with her father, Betty realizes that the murders around her have all been made to look like suicides by poison and that this trend definitely screams Blossom.  After some more detective work, Betty learns that Clifford Blossom was actually poisoned by the “black widow” or “Red Dahlia,” Penelope Blossom.  Cheryl and Toni have already warned Betty to back off, as Cheryl is mourning the death of her Uncle Claudius, although I’m not sure that there are that many tears here, but Betty continues to use all her resources to figure out the connection.  Penelope reveals that Claudius was responsible for the seizures, suggesting that the Fizzle Rocks run off in the river caused them.  However, Penelope Blossom is no medical doctor for sure, as we are still not able to understand why the seizures only impacted girls so far.  After Betty confronts Penelope about what she did, Penelope tries to explain that she only punishes men and that they are the “real poison.”  She also reminds Betty that she talks to Hal quite a bit and knows that she left Chic to die.  Secrets will get the best of you every time, but I’m sure our girl Betty will be able to figure out a plan.

1

“We should agree to keep each other’s secrets.”

After confronting Hermione Lodge, she appears to have nothing to hide.  Hermione is great under pressure and it seems like she may be off the hook, but Jughead Jones knows better.  Hermione may not have pulled the trigger on her husband, but she is pulling all the strings.  Jughead quickly learns that Sheriff Minetta is alive and well and having an affair with Hermione.  Only FP was the one to actually take the shot at Hiram.  Jughead tries to warn his father that Hermione plans to finish the job and frame him, but FP uses his new connection to the media to keep her quiet.  It seems like we are witnessing a strategic game of chess here, but Hermione is not about to let any loose ends remain.  She warns Jughead not to reveal her secrets or she will bring his father down too and she shoots her lover, Sheriff Minetta, proving to be the ultimate femme fatale. 

Overall, I was slightly underwhelmed by the noir themed episode.  Shows like Supernatural and Charmed have pulled this off successfully in the past, using the genre as a filler episode.  However, I am still recovering from the filler episode 9 so I was hoping for something more concrete here.  I will say that the plot did continue to move forward, but I was slightly confused with all the twists and turns and almost felt like I had to take notes just to keep up.  While I love the mystery behind Riverdale, I almost felt like it didn’t even need the noir theme or perhaps it didn’t need it to be present for the entire episode.  Either way, it looks like everyone still remains a suspect in some capacity, but we’ll have to stay tuned to see what happens next!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” season 8 episode 9: “It’s Time For The Apocalypse”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the FX network’s American Horror Story:  Apocalypse season 8 episode 9 last night, a lot of our unanswered questions have finally been answered, but we still have a lot left to cover in next week’s finale.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Fire and Reign,” Michael takes the attack directly to the coven, two “coked up nerds” plot the end of the world, and Mallory’s powers are put to the test.  We also continue to get some fun Easter eggs along the way.  My top 5 moments from American Horror Story:  Apocalypse season 8 episode 9 are:

5

“Well Satan might want to get a paternity test.”

In this episode, we continue to catch up with Jeff and Mutt, played by Peters and Eichner, who are not that impressed with the Antichrist, Michael Langdon.  Jeff hilariously makes fun of Langdon and mocks him saying, “I don’t know what I am supposed to do” and Mutt hilariously points out that Jesus didn’t have it easy either and “that’s why he went to the desert bro.”  We know that Billy Eichner’s other character, Brock, ends up in the wasteland for quite some time as well.  Ms. Venable also gets some more screen time in this episode and is clearly looking for more responsibility, as important as booking the “mile high escorts” is.  Even though her personality is not the warmest, Jeff and Mutt do recognize how much she has done for them and tell her that they want to save her and have her lead her very own Outpost in the apocalypse.  And so we continue connecting the dots.

4

“They’re just gone.”

Michael is still filled with rage and anger, desperately looking to take his revenge out on the witches.  Dinah sells out the witches for a 13 episode talk show, which is amusing because AHS used to be 13 episodes that sometimes had the tendency to drag toward the end.  This season, we will only get 10 episodes, but I’m now wondering if that is truly enough time to wrap everything up.  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out.  Michael puts Ms. Mead to work and she whips out her shotgun arm, taking out Zoe and Queenie, explaining why we do not see them in the future with the other witches.  Cordelia is beyond devastated, especially when she tries to tap into their souls and finds nothing.  Madison conveniently takes this time to explain what she witnessed Michael do back in Murder House and Cordelia realizes that she needs to figure out something fast to protect the rest of her girls.  It is also important to note that Misty was conveniently not in this episode but still mentioned, hinting that perhaps the mud surrounding the swamps could be used for Cordelia’s spell to help hide and protect her girls in the future.

3

“This sounds like the plot of The Omen 3.”

We learn that nerds, or “coked up nerds” in this case, can really take over the world.  Jeff and Mutt use Ms. Mead to communicate with Michael.  They are unimpressed with his desire to run for president and hilariously point out that this sounds like the plot of one of The Omen movies.  After all, Michael does not have too much material to work with on how to be the Antichrist.  Maybe someone can get him a How To guide?  Jeff and Mutt decide that they want to destroy the world instead and use Ms. Mead to convince Michael to jump on the bandwagon, proving that manipulation can be an extremely powerful skill.

2

“This bitch can travel through time?”

As Cordelia recognizes the very real threat against her coven, she explains to Mallory that she must survive, recognizing that Mallory may be the only witch who can truly get them out of this.  Mallory wants to help her sisters, but the test on her powers is dangerous and could lead to death.  Myrtle points out that it will be like the “blind leading the blind,” referencing that Cordelia was once blind herself, as they try to help Mallory go back in time to save Anastasia, the daughter of Alexei Nikolaevich.  You may know about Anastasia from history or from the beloved animated classic, but this version of Anastasia possessed some kind of magical abilities, only they were not strong enough to protect her family.  In history, there was a lot of mystery that surrounded Anastasia’s death, as many impostors claimed to be her.  She was also known as “The Lost Princess,” which connects back to Mallory.  Mallory goes back in time to try and help her, but fails.  She is brought back to present time; however, proving that she is worthy of this power, which will definitely come in handy for our favorite witches.  In the future, Mallory is unsure of her own identity and feels like she has someone trapped within her, suggesting that she is a “lost princess” as well or really a lost witch in this case.

1

“It’s time for the apocalypse.”

We learn that the price of admission is only 100 million dollars, which seems reasonable.  Where can I sign up?  We also learn that “The Cooperative” is actually another name for “The Illuminati.”  Michael convinces everyone to stand with him and Jeff and Mutt’s plan is underway.  After all, they just need to convince a few powerful leaders to push some buttons to start the end of the world, which is beyond scary.  Even though we are surrounded by demons, witches, and a pentagram filled with dead warlocks, the end of the world is actually presented in a realistic way that makes these events even more concerning.  Now that we have all of the chess pieces in place, it’s time to play the game, but who will end up triumphant?  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” season 9 episode 4: “I’d Die For You”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season 9 episode 4, I realized that everyone handles their loneliness in different ways.  While some of us keep busy with a routine, others try and make a connection, desperately reaching out for someone to listen to us.  But what happens when there is no one left to listen?  Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Obliged,” the communities begin to divide even further, disrupting Rick’s vision for them to all live together in peace and harmony.  Meanwhile, Jesus is concerned about Maggie’s actions, Negan requests an audience with Michonne, and Rick and Daryl clash even further after Rick’s “merry band of bridge builders” falls apart.  My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 9 episode 4 are:

5

“I’m gonna make things right.”

Maggie tells Jesus that she is going to make things right like they talked about and is ready to head off to Alexandria to see Negan.  Jesus is very concerned about Maggie, as he wants to make sure that she is thinking clearly and doing things for the right reasons.  While Maggie clearly has her mind made up, Jesus tries to intervene and contacts Rick, warning him about what she is about to potentially do.  Is Maggie ready to finally face Negan?  We’ll have to wait to find out, but it looks like she is not turning back now.

4

“But if anything gives me hope…it’s you.”

Rick is disappointed to see the communities falling apart despite his best effort to keep them all united.  Rick has a touching moment with Carol, which we can now think of as a goodbye.  Rick reveals that he’s not sure that they are doing the right thing, but that he has hope in Carol, who is ready to lead her people back to “The Kingdom.”  Carol explains that she is just trying to figure things out like everybody else, but Carol is someone extraordinary.  On the way back, Carol proves to be a leader and someone you do not want to mess with, reminding everyone around her that she is strong and fully capable of taking care of herself and her people.

3

“You’re the price of admission.”

We get some more screen time for Gabriel and Anne, as Anne explains that Gabriel is the “price of admission” into this mysterious new place she is headed to.  Gabriel doesn’t give up here, even though Anne is about to sick a walker on him while he is tied up.  Gabriel says, “You’re afraid but you don’t have to be.”  He reminds Anne that she has changed and that he is a better person because of her.  Gabriel further tells Anne that he thinks he failed her and that he forgives her.  Just as the walker is about to devour Gabriel, Anne pulls it away, saving Gabriel’s life.  Anne cannot go through with this and ends up knocking Gabriel out and leaving him behind.  Gabriel is only left with a note and Anne explains, “If you want to go fast…go alone.  I need to go fast.”  Gabriel is completely heartbroken in this moment.  It’s actually surprising that he is so upset, considering the fact that Anne almost turned him into an afternoon snack for the garbage walker.  Gabriel clearly cares about Anne tremendously and has made an impact on her, as she was not able to hurt him.  Perhaps she is better off alone, but will her time with Gabriel make her second question everything?

2

“We are not the same.”

Michonne’s daily routine is interrupted when she finds out that Negan has been refusing to eat.  After paying him a visit, Negan requests to have a conversation with Michonne.  Michonne reluctantly agrees and tells Negan that while they are rebuilding, he is continuing to rot in there.  While Michonne handles things with action, Negan is a master of words, manipulating and impacting Michonne more than she could have ever anticipated.  Negan opens up to Michonne about his wife dying from cancer and they even both speak about Carl.  Michonne further opens up about her son, Andre, which is clearly difficult for her to talk about.  Negan is desperately looking for any kind of connection, as anything is better than nothing and tries to tell Michonne that they are the same.  Michonne refuses to admit this, but does Negan have a point?  Negan escalates things further when he demands to see his beloved bat, “Lucille,” but Michonne says it isn’t there.  But perhaps Negan has been getting in Michonne’s head for quite some time, as she continues to see his “bat” everywhere, even in Judith’s children’s book.

1

“Brother…take my hand.”

After Rick finds out about Maggie’s intentions, Daryl conveniently offers to give him a ride.  Only Daryl has no intention of stopping Maggie.  Rick quickly realizes what is going on and demands that Daryl pull over.  The tension that has been building between these two finally erupts, as they begin fighting each other, ending up trapped in a ditch.  Now that they are away from everyone, Rick and Daryl finally take a moment to talk about their feelings.  Daryl tells him about what the Oceanside people did and asks Rick if he forgot that Glenn was the one who initially saved him.  Rick explains that if Negan dies, he will become a martyr and then Carl died for nothing.  Daryl says that he’d die for Rick and that he would have died for Carl too, but that Rick is chasing something for him that isn’t meant to be.  Daryl begs Rick to let go of Carl, but is Rick really able to do so?  When they hear cries from the camp, Rick and Daryl finally put their differences aside and work together to get out of the pit.  Rick takes Daryl’s hand and calls him his brother, saving him.  After seeing the horde of walkers quickly approaching, Rick gets on the horse to lead them away, bringing us full circle, as Rick was initially on a horse in the series premiere.  Daryl tells him to “be safe,” but we all know what is coming next.  The horse gets spooked and throws Rick off of him, as Rick hits his head and is injured severely, completely surrounded by oncoming walkers.  There’s no way Rick is getting out of this one, but we’ll have to wait for next week to find out how it ends.  Stay tuned for Rick’s last episode!
