Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 5 episode 8: “Is Anybody Out There?”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 8, I realized that if you haven’t seen a whole lot of good lately, you could have some coming your way, but nothing is ever guaranteed when you are trying to survive during the zombie apocalypse.  Even when all hope seems to be lost, you need to find a reason to live and when you find that reason…hold on to it as long as you can!  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “Is Anybody Out There?” Alicia, Morgan, and Grace deal with a walker horde looking to hitch a ride on their flight.  Meanwhile, June makes John a promise, and Sarah and Wendell try to get the runway ready, but run into a few issues of their own.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 8 are:

5

“You’re going to be OK.”

In the beginning of the episode, Alicia finally gets a break to take a quick hot shower, only it’s to scrub down after being potentially exposed to a radioactive walker.  Alicia’s favorite weapon is in the clear, but what about Alicia?  Grace tells her that they don’t know yet and they have a bigger problem to worry about now that the alarm has sounded, but it looks like Alicia’s fate has yet to be determined.  I’m remaining positive, but I would love to get some confirmation soon that she is in perfect health.  Fingers crossed!

“I’m not losing at the game of life!

Even though Sarah is dealing with a lot of pressure trying to get the runway ready for our friends, she keeps the laughs coming.  We get to see Logan again in this episode and Sarah asks him for help, but he doesn’t seem too inclined to get involved.  Sarah warns him that if he calls her “sweetheart” again, he’s going to get a nice shiner to match the one he already has, but luckily Dan the Man later shows up with perfect timing!  As if he is a Christmas miracle himself, he has brought along quite a few strings of Christmas lights for the runway, but will it work?  It’s great to see Dan the Man back in action and even Skidmark is super happy to be reunited with him, which was absolutely adorable!  More Skidmark screen time when new episodes return please!

“From the moment I laid eyes on you, I knew I found my reason to live.”

John and Dwight worry that they might not be able to make it to the plane in time and John radios over to June and asks her to promise him that she will take off whether he is there or not.  June does not want to leave without her beloved John, but she does make the promise.  It looks like John’s luck hasn’t run out just yet; however, as he finds the car that Sherry left and they make it to the plane with perfect timing.

After John gets on board, he tells June that there are still so many things he wants to tell her and he proposes to June using one of his hard candy wrappers, which was so incredibly beautiful and romantic.  Of course June says yes and I was literally jumping up and down cheering for these two.  Against all odds, these two continue to give me hope and I can’t get enough of them.  Somehow I feel like Dan the Man is going to officiate the wedding, but this was such an important moment for these two characters and I continue to ship them together so much!

2

“We are still standing!”

We have liftoff!  Al takes in some nice scenery after they lose the hitchhiking walkers from the back of the plane and fly over the ominous cloud headed straight toward them, but they still have to land the plane successfully.  The Christmas light runway is up and running, but Wendell runs into some trouble when a few walkers make their way over to him.  Wendell refuses to give up and crawls over to turn the switch back on and the plane is able to land without anyone getting hurt.  Luckily Wendell is OK as well and he is the hero of the day for me!

Everyone is surprisingly still standing and we even get a touching moment between Daniel and Alicia, who are finally reunited.  Dan the Man also takes a minute to tell Victor that he was wrong and it looks like everything is back to normal for our favorite characters.  Only we know that Logan is still lurking around and of course he now shows up to crash the welcome party.

1

“You’re saying we should trust you?”

Logan is ready to chat with our group and interrupts someone trying to radio over to Morgan for help.  Logan shows up in person and explains that they need to actually be able to get to the people they want to help and that they are not going to be able to.  Of course Logan has a plan and tells the group that Clayton had a backup plan for this and kept a resource site somewhere else, but the location is in his journal.  Luciana perhaps over shares and reveals that they do have the journal and it seems like they are all going to work together to find this mysterious resource location.  Logan claims he is trying to make up for what he did, but is he really?

I don’t trust Logan for one second and it seems like he does not get along very well with this other group so I’m not sure that our favorite characters should get involved here, but they won’t be able to help many others if they can’t get to them.  Is this a trap?  We’ll have to wait and see, but I’m interested to see how this plays out for the second half of the season, as new episodes return August 11th 2019.  Also, congrats to Fear TWD for being renewed for season 6!  Stay tuned!

My Ship of the week ending 7/13/19 on TV goes to…

Kane and Abby on The 100, better known as Kabby!  Kabby is such an underrated ship on The 100 and it doesn’t get as much attention as Bellarke or Clexa, but there is something to be truly said about it.  The love between Kabby is powerful and healing.  Both Kane and Abby have lost their way so many times and yet they find something so special with one another.

**Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not watched season 6 episode 9 yet.  The journey for these two characters is truly remarkable, as they have both made so many mistakes, but yet they continue to fight to make things right.  Even though Kane may have the most to make up for from his time on The Ark, he has now essentially become the moral compass of the show. 

In seasons 5 and 6, Abby has been broken, but Kane has never given up on her, which explains why Abby refuses to let him go in season 6.  However, I love that Kane doesn’t turn a blind eye either.  He does intervene and he tries to get Abby to see reason during her addiction in season 5 because he truly cares and wants what is best for her.  In season 6 episode 9, Kane wakes up in his new body and has trouble adjusting and accepting this.  Abby begs him to make the most of it, recognizing the potential for a second chance here, but Kane knows this is not right and he decides to bring everything full circle.

In one of the most heartbreaking moments I have witnessed yet on the show, Kane (as Henry Ian Cusick) says goodbye to Abby through the glass and tells her that he has always loved her.  He essentially floats himself, hoping his sacrifice will make a difference here and he brings everything full circle by doing this.  Abby has turned to drugs in the past, but will Kane’s sacrifice finally get through to her?  We have heard the phrase, “May We Meet Again,” so many times on the show, but it truly made an impact with me in this moment.

Henry Ian Cusick has confirmed that he is leaving the show, but I can’t really think of this as the end of Kabby.  Their love is so inspiring and I’m hoping that Abby will carry her love for Kane with her always, which will keep his values alive.  Kane has always wanted to make amends and do the right thing and he will never be forgotten.

Kabby’s love is transcendent of time and it’s difficult thinking about the show without it.  I almost feel like I lost a part of myself along with Kane, but I have a feeling that a spark has just ignited in Abby and she’s about to make Kane proud.  Thank you Henry Ian Cusick for so many amazing years on the show and thank you for bringing Kabby into our lives!  May we meet again.  Stay tuned!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Younger” season 6 episode 4: “BDE”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching TV Land’s Younger season 6 episode 4, I realized that “if you’re looking for trouble, you’re probably gonna find it,” but what happens when it’s finally all out in the open?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In Wednesday night’s episode, “An Inside Glob,” Kelsey’s stress begins to catch up with her, which causes her to get creative with some of her fashion choices.  Meanwhile, Maggie tries out an interesting home remedy, Josh bonds with his daughter, and Liza confronts Charles.  My top 5 moments from Younger season 6 episode 4 are:

5

“Money isn’t everything.”

In this episode, Kelsey decides to track down Zane at his new office and discovers that Mercury is based out of a community workplace.  Zane doesn’t seem to mind, but Kelsey wants to know where he is getting his funding from.  Zane reminds Kelsey that money isn’t everything and sometimes “it’s about charm,” but Kelsey doesn’t find this very cute at all.  Watch out, Zane!

4

“I don’t have that energy!”

Kelsey confides in Lauren about her stress over work and Lauren suggests she starts casually dating again.  She hilariously changes Kelsey’s work title on her dating app to “Creative Director,” so that Kelsey will seem more approachable, explaining that Kelsey has “BDE,” which apparently stands for big dick energy.  Kelsey seems excited for a new potential romance and decides to get her hair done for the occasion, but is in for a huge surprise, when she finds out that she is losing clumps of her hair and perhaps her BDE is really “Bald Dude Energy.”  Poor Kelsey.

3

“I really wanna be in her life full time.”

Meanwhile, Josh gets some quality time with his daughter when Clare has to work on a project.  Josh is absolutely adorable with his baby and even puts her in a baby carrier at work…although I’m not sure that the tattoo parlor is the best place for her, but Josh assures Clare that the buzzing actually puts her right to sleep.  Josh realizes that he wants to spend more time with his daughter and hopes that their upcoming divorce does not get in the way.  He asks Clare if they can do this parenting thing together and she agrees.  I’m just hoping this all works out for Josh because he seems so happy.

2

“Is there something you’re not telling me?”

Liza takes a minute to confront Charles privately and asks him if he is the money behind Mercury.  Charles comes clean with Liza and explains that he never wanted to give up publishing and was just trying to find the right moment to tell her.  Liza seems somewhat understanding after Charles explains that he wants something just for him, as he was always previously working for his father’s company, but asks Liza to keep this between them for now.  However, this puts Liza in an awkward position, as she will have to keep this information from Kelsey.  It’s only a matter of time before the cat is out of the bag.

1

“My hair is falling out because of you!”

Well at least we don’t have to wait that long, as Kelsey decides to go see the author who initially turned her down at her lunch meeting with Zane.  Liza tries to intervene, but it’s too late, as Charles and Zane walk in the door and everything is now finally out in the open.  Kelsey is outraged by this and feels betrayed, screaming that her hair is falling out because of them.  Unfortunately, that starts trending on social media, which is not the best look for Kelsey, but at least the author decides to stay with her.  After all, Kelsey did fight for her and is extremely motivated and capable.  However, we now discover that Charles has resigned from the board, which makes him their official competition.

It looks like things are only going to get more complicated now.  Competition may be healthy, but Kelsey is taking everything personally and I don’t really blame her.  We’ll have to wait and see how this all unfolds.  Stay tuned!

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

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

John Murphy and Emori on The 100, better known as Memori! The two outsiders on the show who somehow found their way to one another fly under the radar sometimes, but their love is real and inspiring.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  There is just something so incredibly sweet about these two together.  I fell in love with this ship a long time ago on the show and it continues to make me melt.  Murphy has always been the bad boy, but he has the potential to be redeemed by love when he meets Emori.  Emori is not without her faults either, as she has trouble trusting others and both characters were used to putting their own survival ahead of helping others in the past.  However, that starts to change when they meet each other. 

It seems like Emori has made more progress with her moral compass, as our favorite bad boy cannot always be trusted, but there is something magical about these two together.  Even though Murphy can be a bit harsh with others, he wears his heart on his sleeve when it comes to his feelings for Emori.  We’ve been lacking some serious screen time for these two for a while, but I was happy to see some swoon-worthy moments between them in season 6 episode 8.  

Murphy gets down on one knee and asks Emori if she can love him forever.  Even though Murphy is talking about siding with Josephine here and accepting immortality, I can’t skip over the sweetness of this moment.  Emori ultimately has to choose between staying loyal to Murphy and doing the right thing.  Even though she ends up telling Bellamy about John’s plan to get rid of Clarke, she still cares for him so deeply.

Later on, when Josephine stabs Murphy, Emori rushes over to his side and tells him to stay with her.  Through it all, Memori continues to touch my heart and soul.  Even though I was getting some vibes between Murphy and Raven for a while, I think that Memori is end game.  They accept each other for who they are, faults and all.

What’s next for Memori?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but it looks like they are in a lot of trouble.  They are both taken prisoner by the Primes and Murphy’s injury looks pretty bad, so we will have to see if they can survive what happens next.  I’m hoping so, but immortality may be out of reach for Murphy now, but perhaps he can realize that having the woman he loves with him is rewarding enough.  I can’t wait to see what happens next for them!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

My Ship of the week ending 6/22/19 on TV goes to…

John Dorie (like the fish) and June (June Bug) on Fear the Walking Dead! I really can’t say enough about these two, as their relationship gives me all the feels!  In a zombie apocalypse, they are still able to give us swoon-worthy moments that just make you smile.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  There is just something so incredibly sweet about these two together.  I fell in love with their relationship back in season 4 and I was worried that they wouldn’t get that much screen time in season 5, but episode 3 didn’t disappoint, as these two headed off to the wild wild west together.  I almost felt like they were on a real date, even though those pesky walkers decided to break up the party. 

The reason why I love these two together so much is that their love inspires those around them as well.  In season 5 episode 3, they cross paths with Dwight, who is searching for his own lost love, but John and June refuse to let him give up hope, recognizing what it feels like to keep searching for that special someone, even though it seems like it may be impossible.  However, anything is possible with these two…even the impossible and that’s why I adore them so much. 

You know how some movies just make you cry uncontrollably when you think about how incredibly romantic they are?  The Notebook comes to mind for me, which I can’t watch without sobbing, but I almost feel like John Dorie and June could star in their own version of an epic love story because their love is that powerful.  There is just something so enchanting and beautiful about it and I just hope that the writers on the show don’t tear them apart.  I honestly couldn’t take it at this point because I have fallen in love with both of them and I will continue to root for them against all odds.

What’s next for John Dorie and June?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but it looks like a lot of new threats are headed their way.  John Dorie is the fastest gun in the west and June can keep up as well, creating a great tag team, but Fear TWD does have a habit of splitting characters up, so I’m just really hoping that doesn’t happen here.  These two are already amazing characters on their own, but together they are something truly remarkable.  I can’t wait to see what happens next for them!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

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

Liza and Charles on Younger, better known as Charliza or Team Charles!  The chemistry between these two has been building and building for the entire series and last season, Team Charles fans everywhere got to rejoice, witnessing some sweet and steamy moments between these two.  However, it looks like their relationship can finally begin to define itself now in season 6.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  Charles has given up so much for Liza, but clearly she is worth it.  Even though Charles has essentially sacrificed his career to choose Liza, he is finding his true identity with her, finally feeling free.  

Charliza is now also out in the open, but there is still a lot of drama surrounding them.  Scandal is following Charles’s departure, as news of his affair is leaked and Kelsey is initially blamed and there’s also the fact that Charles is still legally married.  Even though things are still beyond complicated, Charles and Liza are trying to make it work and I think that goes to show that “nothing worth having comes easy.”  Against all odds, I root for these two, even though Liza did have a fair amount of sparks with Josh.  However, with Charles, it just seems like these two connect on another level.  They understand each other and their friendship is adorable.

What’s next for Charliza?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but it looks like Liza may be put in an awkward position in terms of her career when she has to choose loyalty to either Charles or Kelsey.  Even though Charles has given up so much for her, is Liza ready to do the same?  I’m hoping so, but I know that the road will continue to twist off unexpectedly for Charliza, but I expect them to come out even stronger than before.  These two are meant to be and they deserve a real chance at happiness.  I can’t wait to see what happens next for these two!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

My Ship of the week ending 5/18/19 on TV goes to…

Dylan and Andrew on Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, better known as Andy!  There have been several swoon-worthy ships emerging on the PLL spin-off, but Andy has just taken things to the next level.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  Dylan and Andrew initially seemed like they might go their separate ways, as Andrew was upset to find out about Dylan’s secret past with Nolan.  However, things are finally looking up for these two and I was happy to see a sweet and passionate moment for them. 

I have been waiting for Dylan to play his song, “Song for Andrew,” for his boyfriend and this moment finally happened and it was beautiful!  First off, the song is so pretty and I want to download it myself and play it all the time.  Andrew is clearly so surprised and happy with the song, as this ship on the rocks now sails steady.

Later on in season 1, episode 9, Andrew proves that he is someone who Dylan can truly count on.  Dylan is facing the possibility of expulsion and Andrew steps in to save the day.  He plays Dylan’s music piece in front of the Gala audience, showcasing his incredible talent.  This was a risky move for Andrew, but it pays off, as it now puts Claire Hotchkiss in a difficult position.  I was seriously very impressed with Andrew’s decision here, as he makes Dylan his number one priority, proving to be in his corner.  No more secrets, guys!

What’s next for Andy?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but let’s hope this new “A” doesn’t get in the way of this beautiful love.  These two are end game for me and even though there are other ships with some note-worthy moments on the show, it seems like Andy is here to stay.  I can’t wait to see what happens next for these two!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!
