Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 16: “The Locked Room”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 16, we were reminded that faking your own death is no simple task. Illusions can certainly take a toll, but is it all worth it in the end to solve the perfect murder?

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

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Seventy-Three: The Locked Room,” Jughead and Betty are determined to wrap up the case once and for all. The mystery is solved, but there may be a few loose ends left after all…

My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 16 are:

5

“Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”

Jughead Jones channels his very own Mark Twain, revealing that he is actually alive to the Stonewall Prep cronies and Mr. DuPont. He’s not holding anything back anymore and he and Betty lock everyone in the room together, determined to get to the bottom of the mystery before they open the doors again.

We certainly get a lot of reveals jam-packed into this episode. We discover that the goal was to execute the perfect murder against him so that one of his classmates could obtain the contract to the Baxter Brother series.

Mr. Chipping’s role comes into play as we learn that Moose was the original target, but Mr. Chipping decided to get him out of there before anything happened to him. This is not the first time this formula of perfect murder has been put into place, as we learn that every single ghost writer for the Baxter Brothers series went through something similar and of course they are ready to lawyer up.

Our “friendly neighborhood doctor of death” played his part to make it look like Jughead was dead, which is something I had predicted earlier on so I was happy to confirm this theory.

As the pieces all come together, Bughead is ready to serve some justice. You should really never mess with the ultimate dynamic duo…

4

“Let’s loop back to the original sin.”

Good idea, Jughead! Even though the Stonewall Prep cronies are responsible for Jughead’s attempted murder, Mr. DuPont is far from innocent. We learn that he murdered his three classmates and made their deaths all look like accidents.

Any time someone got close to the truth, he took them out of his way. We learn that Jughead was brought into the mix because Mr. DuPont was trying to lure out his grandfather, Forsythe, to really tie up all loose ends.

Well, Forsythe is “live and in the flesh,” as he shows up with FP to confront Mr. DuPont. It’s certainly over for Mr. DuPont, but he decides to jump out of the window to commit suicide rather than deal with the consequences of his own actions.

Seriously, they must fix that window a lot…

3

“The counter to your counter.”

Bret doesn’t seem too worried, ready to take a deal and lawyer up to protect himself, but Charles has another idea in mind. He leaves the room while FP and Jughead take over, serpent style.

Bret is beaten into a confession and it looks like he finally got what he deserved. This guy was asking for a punch every single time he opened his mouth.

So long, Bret! Hope to see you never!

2

“You wanted revenge.”

Even though Bret is beyond annoying, the real mastermind of the group has always been Donna. Our girl Betty pays Donna a visit, revealing that Donna’s grandmother was Jane Dallas Brown, one of the original classmates murdered by Mr. DuPont. In addition, we discover that Mr. DuPont stole the idea of Tracy True from her, explaining why Donna wanted to take over the series so much.

Donna initially doesn’t seem threatened by Betty, but Betty promises to leak this story to everyone if she doesn’t back down from the contract. After all, she can link this “entire web of death” back to her.

Tracy deserves better! Go Betty!

1

“Your secret’s safe with me.”

Even though the mystery is solved, Cheryl takes a moment to point out that the kiss between Betty and Archie looked pretty real. Betty assures her that it was all an act, but perhaps there was an unforeseen consequence to all of this.

Is there hope for Barchie or will Bughead continue to thrive?

We’ll have to stay tuned to find out. The drama now moves toward the new variety show, as Archie decides to make another vow or toast to the group. Let’s see how this one works out…

New episodes return April 8th! Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” Season 10 Episode 9: Cave of Wonders

Happy Monday TV fans! The wait is over and TWD is back! After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season 10 episode 9, we were reminded that we should “fight for our future,” but we “don’t fight for revenge.” Makes sense, but what happens when your need for revenge endangers those around you? Is it still possible to make amends or are some actions unforgivable?

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

In last night’s episode, “Squeeze,” we explore a cave sans wonders with the group, as they get into some dangerous jams along the way. Meanwhile, we witness something even more disturbing between Negan and Alpha that still has my skin crawling.

My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 10 episode 9 are:

5

“We got into this mess together and we’re gonna get out of it together…”

Inspiring words, Daryl, but easier said than done. The episode picks up exactly where we left off, as a group of our characters are trapped in a cave filled with walkers. Daryl refuses to give up hope and keeps everyone moving, but there is danger lurking behind every corner.

4

“If I only knew what you told me, I wouldn’t know shit…”

Daryl speaks the truth and that’s why we adore him, but Carol really needs to listen to reason now. I sympathize with everything that Carol is going through, but she ran off by herself and forced everyone into this mess and this should be a wake-up call for her.

Daryl proves just how much he knows Carol, recognizing that she is claustrophobic. He tries to keep her motivated, but there is clearly still a voice in the back of Carol’s head driving her toward revenge.

3

“Go…go…GO!”

The group begins to make their way out of the caves using small tunnels and they certainly all have to “squeeze.” Poor Jerry has a close call when he gets stuck, but surprisingly everyone is able to make it out of this one without a scratch. This certainly gave us some much needed action during the episode.

2

“Your reward…”

Negan gets some screen time during this episode and begins to plant some seeds of doubt within Alpha, suggesting that the traitor may be Gamma. Negan tries to explain that they are the same, but Alpha decides to lead him off away from the rest of the group.

Initially, Negan worries about his fate, but apparently Alpha wants to give him a crass reward. Alpha strips down and instructs Negan to do the same, but keeps her skin mask on.

Negan actually kind of digs the mask and I was left with a foul taste in my mouth.

Seriously, gross!

1

“Please say it…”

Oh Carol, if only you had listened to Daryl. After there is a close call with dynamite, (For all you Losties, we almost had an Arzt situation) it looked like everyone was going to make it out of the caves, but of course Carol goes back to take out some of the horde.

Daryl, Connie, and Magda go after her and Connie and Magda end up getting trapped in a cave in. Carol finally breaks down, watching Daryl digging for them and begs him to finally blame her.

So, has Carol finally learned her lesson now that she has potentially harmed Connie and Magda?

Is there another way out of the cave?

TWD AMC 1

Let’s hope so because I actually really like both of their characters and it would break my heart to see Daryl lose Connie.

Overall, not too much happened in the mid-season premiere, so I’m hoping that we can pick up the pace in next week’s episode.

Stay tuned!

What are some of YOUR theories?

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 10: “Cherry Bomb”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  The wait is finally over and Archie and the gang are back just in time for the big game!  After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 10, I learned that Stonewall Prep “doesn’t play to win, they play to hurt,” but hell hath no fury like a Riverdale woman seeking out revenge.  Watch out, guys!

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

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Sixty-Seven:  Varsity Blues,” it’s time for the big football game, as our two rival schools prepare for war.  Meanwhile, Cheryl meets the new cheerleading coach, Jughead reveals some secrets to Quill & Skull, and a B & V scam is up and running once again.

My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 10 are:

5

“You respect what a man chooses for himself.”

Were you wondering about Archie’s Uncle Frank?  Me too!  Well, at least we get some answers, as we discover that Uncle Frank may be the black sheep of the family.  Mrs. Andrews does not get along with him and tells Archie that Fred was blamed for a DUI when Uncle Frank was driving.

Things also start to get shady when Uncle Frank offers Munroe some drugs to help his kneel heal quicker, but Archie seems to have a fast change of heart, agreeing to allow Uncle Frank to stay with him temporarily.

Let’s hope he doesn’t bring our favorite vigilante to the dark side…

4

“It tastes like money.”

Veronica is determined to beat her father and even comes up with her own special blend of rum…Luna Rum.  Sounds catchy and apparently it is quite spicy as well, but Hiram finds out and serves Veronica with a cease and desist letter, reminding her that she is still using his patented recipe.

Reggie has some interesting ideas about how to get revenge that are quite juvenile, but Veronica is playing to win and decides to team up with Cheryl to make the perfect blend using her maple syrup.

Go V!

3

“Maybe you could go turn on your femme fatale charm.”

Betty is determined to get some dirt on Bret and the rest of the team to prove that they are playing dirty, but it looks like we are ready for another classic B & V scam.  Veronica, or “Monica,” wears her blonde wig to perfection and tries to get close to Bret.

She can “smell his privilege from across the room” and it looks like she is actually getting somewhere with Betty listening in, but Jughead outs her in front of the party as poor Betty now finds out that Jughead is part of the Quill & Skull secret society.

I always love an excuse for a good B & V team up, but let’s hope that they can take Bret down once and for all!

2

“I run the show around here.”

Yes you do, Cheryl!  Cheryl and the Vixens are preparing for Spirit Week and the big game, but Mr. Honey reminds her that a new coach will be taking over, Miss Appleyard.  Miss Appleyard doesn’t seem to be threatened, so has Cheryl finally met her match?

Riverdale The CW 3

Cheryl refuses to take orders from her and reminds her that her “body is perfection, you crone!”  After Mr. Honey threatens to take away prom for the squad, they turn their backs on Cheryl and agree to follow Miss Appleyard because you know, we can’t have any singing and dancing in cheerleading…

Cheryl is not through; however, and ends up locking Miss Appleyard in her office so that she can put on a showstopping number to “Cherry Bomb.”

Our HBIC is back, but I’m interested to find out more about Miss Appleyard and her motivation in all of this…

Theories on her arrival?

1

“We may have lost the game, but haven’t lost the war.”

After losing the game to Stonewall Prep, Bret seems quite confident.  He tells Betty he’s sorry about her article getting canned with a lot of smug attitude.  Betty doesn’t seem to be intimidated at all; however, especially since she just started digging.  After all, who knows what else she will find?

Betty approaches Mr. Honey and tells him that Stonewall Prep also wins a Quiz Team tournament each year and is beyond motivated to kick their ass.  Our new captain is out for blood and it looks like she will have an unstoppable team with Veronica, Cheryl, and Toni by her side, but we know that Betty is going to dominate the competition.

We then flash forward to one month later and see Betty packing up some of Jughead’s things.  Bret says that they will be the only ones going to Yale now, which begs the question, did Betty feel threatened when Jughead got into Yale?  We know that Betty was initially rejected, so how did she turn the tables here?

The plot thickens, but I can’t wait to find out more and next week’s Quiz Show looks like it is going to be vicious and fantastic.  I can’t wait!  Stay tuned!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Dare Me” on USA Network: Dark Sensational Potential with Spirit Fingers

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“Cheerleading equals death,” according to Torrance’s hilarious younger brother in Bring It On and he may have been spot on when it comes to USA Network’s new teen drama.  Teenage girls can be dangerous, especially when the captain’s spot on her beloved squad is threatened, as secrets slither into the open, luring us into a promising slow burn thriller.

After watching the Pilot episode, the show already reminds me of Bring It On combined with some dark cult comedy greats like Heathers and Jawbreaker, which could be the formula for a fantastic new show.

Dare Me is based on the novel of the same name by Megan Abbott, following the plot of a cheerleader who seeks revenge on the squad that betrayed her.  The show premiered on the USA Network on December 29th 2019 and will feature 10 weekly episodes.  It stars Willa Fitzgerald (Scream), Marlo Kelly, Herizen Guardiola, Erika Prevost, and Taveeta Szymanowicz.

The show seems like it may have been better suited for a slot on Freeform and a mid-season premiere can be problematic, but the show could be a diamond in the rough.

Does Dare Me do enough to capture our full attention in its Pilot episode?  Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Dare Me USA Network 1

Strong and interesting characters.

I am already a fan of Willa Fitzgerald and she is definitely making waves as the new coach of this cheerleading squad.  Marlo Kelly is also proving to be quite the scene stealer as the mean girl captain with a bitter sweet tooth for revenge.  More please!

Cheerleading can be brutal.

I absolutely love the concept of this show and we are immersed into a competitive world where these girls will do anything to be the one on top of the pyramid.  The dark and sadistic hints are enough to hold my attention, as we begin to explore the secrets leading up to some kind of unspeakable crime.

I have a lot of questions already, but that just means this show is doing a good job of keeping me invested so far.

The Cons:

Dare Me USA Network 2
Images courtesy of USA Network

Super long montages and lots of fluff.

The show is already coming across as a slow burn thriller, which means we will need to invest some time into it before we get any major reveals.  There is a lot of set-up in the pilot episode to really introduce everything, but I could have done without the numerous montages.  Seriously, it seemed like they were endless.

So am I in or out?

Dare Me USA Network 3

I’m in for now, but I’m not completely convinced as of yet.  The show has a lot of promise and potential to become something truly dark and magnificent, but I just need things to speed up slightly so that I don’t lose interest too quickly.

When a show airs weekly episodes, they need to do enough to keep viewers coming back and I think they have, but we need to keep up the pace and introduce more dark secrets involving this major crime to prevent us from losing interest.

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

Best,

Amy Koto, TV Fanatic Girl

Ranking the top 5 moments from “American Horror Story: 1984” season 9 episode 9 Season Finale: “Final Girl”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the FX network’s American Horror Story:  1984 season 9 episode 9 season finale, I learned that the 80’s will never truly die, but our killers certainly didn’t make it easy for our potential Final Girls.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “Final Girl,” we flash forward to 2019, as a familiar AHS face seeks out Camp Redwood, looking for answers.  Meanwhile, the Final Girl is revealed, but not before we get some unexpected twists and turns along the way.  My top 5 moments from the American Horror Story:  1984 season 9 episode 9 Season Finale are:

5

“You’re in danger…”

We certainly got a lot of time jumps during this season and it’s now 2019, as AHS alum, Finn Wittrock, shows up at Camp Redwood to find out the truth.  He comes into contact with Montana and Trevor and they learn that he is Mr. Jingles’s son, Bobby.

Small world!  Bobby has returned to find his father, but they tell him that he is dead and that he is in great danger now.

Bobby is quickly introduced to the supernatural threats on the campgrounds, but will he be able to make it out alive?  Let’s find out!

4

“You can’t sing Rebel Yell and not be a rebel.”

Fair point, Montana!  During the episode, we discover that Margaret brutally stabbed Trevor after finding out that he was trying to keep people from coming to her musical massacre fest.  Trevor tries to get over the campground lines so that he can be with Montana, but he can’t make it.  Luckily, Brooke shows up to help him, as Montana now realizes that she also has the chance for redemption.

Dylan McDermott’s character is killed pretty easily, but Montana is ready to take down the Night Stalker herself.

Naturally, she tells him that Billy Idol is waiting for him to lure him away, which is a great tactic!  The Night Stalker is surrounded by all the ghosts and they take out their revenge on him, trapping his spirit there for eternity.

Only they need to keep constant watch over him or he could summon Satan to be reborn, so this is certainly a lot of work.

While I was slightly disappointed with how easy it was to take down the Night Stalker, I was happy with Montana’s quest toward redemption here.

3

“Take her…”

The Night Stalker was really just the appetizer for the main course; however, as the ghosts now turn their attention on Margaret.

Margaret is not really intimidated, but they certainly pull out all the stops to brutally murder her.  They cut off her limbs one by one and ensure that the remains are spilled out past the campgrounds, but one should never truly discount Margaret…

Either way, this scene had my stomach turning, but it’s not like she didn’t have this coming.

2

“You were the last one.  The only one.”

Right before Margaret is taken, Brooke and Donna attack her, but Brooke is stabbed in the process.  When Bobby goes to the asylum to get some answers about his father, he meets Donna years later and realizes that she is the Final Girl.

Only nothing is that simple on AHS, as we find out that Ray saved Brooke and she has been secretly sending Bobby money all these years to try and give him a chance at a normal life.

It looks like Brooke and Donna are both the Final Girls after all!

Both of them killed it and were the highlight of the season for me, so I was really happy that they both were able to make it out of there OK.  Looks like they’re bonded for life now!

1

“The 80’s will never die.”

Even after hearing everything, Bobby still returns to Camp Redwood and of course the Night Stalker breaks free and tries to kill him.  The ghosts all band together to save him and Mr. Jingles shows up with perfect timing to stop Margaret, who has been hiding out all this time to get her revenge, revealing that she died right before her head was thrown across the line.

Bobby is stabbed and it doesn’t look too good for him, but his grandmother shows up to stop Margaret, giving Bobby his chance at a real happy ending.

Montana reminds him to keep their ghost stories alive so that the 80’s never die and we get somewhat of a happily ever after here.

So overall, I absolutely LOVED the first half of season 9.  The throwback to the 80’s and the music was out of this world.  The show did an excellent job of channeling that slasher vibe while also throwing in some campy horror humor to really lighten the mood and I thought that this was so entertaining.

However, once we got to the second half of the season, it felt like random plots were thrown our way and everything got a little bit chaotic.  It almost seemed like they didn’t really know where to go at a certain point and I almost wish they would have had fewer episodes with more 80’s slasher fun because the season was at its highest point during those moments.

Either way, I appreciated the music and had a lot of fun watching.  Although I really wanted to see Billy Idol!  There were some fantastic guest stars and some really great performances, but we’ll have to see what premise we get in season 10.  Stay tuned AHS fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “American Horror Story: 1984” season 9 episode 8: “Final Girls”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the FX network’s American Horror Story:  1984 season 9 episode 8, I learned that many horror movies have a Final Girl, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have more than one!  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “Rest in Pieces,” Brooke and Donna continue to work together to carry out their story of revenge.  Meanwhile, the serial killers team up, determined to create a massacre that will be remembered for all time.  My top 5 moments from the American Horror Story:  1984 season 9 episode 8 are:

5

“We’re trying to listen to Creedence!”

Dylan McDermott’s character showed up at exactly the right time.  He certainly likes the feisty ones and he is stealing the show at this point with his overenthusiastic quest to get his numbers up so he can be a Serial Killer legend.  But can he truly keep up with Margaret and the Night Stalker?  Maybe not, but I’m entertained for sure!

4

“Kajagoogoo is dead!”

After discovering the dead bodies on the bus, Margaret is outraged, screaming out that “Kajagoogoo is dead!”  Her assistant tries to make things right, but Margaret wants him to clean up this nightmare, refusing to let a one hit wonder get in the way of her show.

Only Kajagoogoo refuses to let his single fade away along with him, as he comes back to life to continue to sing “Too Shy,” which was absolutely hilarious.

3

“I’m with Satan.”

The Night Stalker is definitely not too shy about showing off where his loyalty lies, but Benjamin/Mr. Jingles is ready to stop him once and for all.  The Night Stalker is shocked and somewhat impressed to discover that Benjamin killed himself to stop him, but I’m still waiting for this final showdown between them.

Perhaps Benjamin should try and kill Billy Idol to distract the Night Stalker since he wants to protect him no matter what.

Our new trio of serial killers is formed and Margaret is determined to kill every single musician that performs (except Billy) to become a serial killer legend, but we’ll  have to see who has the true moment in the spotlight in the finale.

2

“You’re 80’s forever!”

Trevor continues to fall in love with ghost Montana, who is starting to realize that perhaps she doesn’t deserve to be happy.  After hearing about what Richard Ramirez has become, she thinks she is a monster and starts to blame herself for his actions.

Will Montana try and redeem herself?

We’ll have to wait and see, but she does push Trevor away, not wanting him to throw his life away to be with her in the afterlife.  I guess that’s a start…

1

“We’re the best story she’s ever had.”

Brooke and Donna continue to make an unbelievable tag team, but their plan gets put on hold when a nosy book writer shows up, claiming she knows exactly who they are.  Brooke promises her the story of her life in exchange for their freedom, but poor Stacy gets more than she bargained for when she is actually killed by our new trio of serial killers.

Brooke tells Donna that perhaps they are both Final Girls and I agree!  I’m absolutely rooting for them both and I just want to see their story of revenge take on a life of its own.  Donna is still reminding Brooke about doing the right thing so we will have to see how this plays out, but I’m all for changing up the rules to allow two Final Girls to come out victorious. 

How will it all end?  Stay tuned for the season finale next week!

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

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

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

5

“Take a picture.  It will last longer.”

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

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

4

“Old habits die hard.”

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

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

3

“That bitch needs to die.”

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

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

“Welcome back to the land of the living.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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