Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 3: “Have you ever known peace?”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 3, I realized that many of us want that second chance…an opportunity to start over.  But this is not always possible when it comes to a jaded past.  Can one really be redeemed or will past sins consume you until there is nothing left?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Children of Gabriel,” Clarke and the others meet the leader of Sanctum, Russell Lightborn, but is he a friend or foe?  Meanwhile, Madi, Diyoza, and Gaia face a threat on the ship and Octavia is ready for action.  My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 3 are:

5

“I’m pretty sure I’m going to hell.”

In the beginning of the episode, Murphy’s life is in great danger, as Abby cannot figure out what is happening to him.  The leader of Sanctum, Russell Lightborn, approaches and reveals that he can save Murphy life…only “he’s already dead,” but apparently this is not the end.  Murphy was exposed to something toxic in the seaweed and Lightborn uses the venom from a live snake to suck out the poison.  Luckily Murphy is all right, but this near death experience has definitely rattled him.

Murphy explains that he thought he saw something and he states that he’s pretty sure he is going to hell.  So what exactly did Murphy see and will this be explored further?  We know that Murphy died on this mysterious moon for a few moments, so is it possible that he came back wrong?  We’ll have to wait and see, but I am absolutely concerned about Murphy.

4

“You need to work on your game, kid…”

This is the first time that Jordan has really interacted with anyone other than his parents, Monty and Harper, but he doesn’t waste any time, as he immediately connects with a girl on Sanctum named Delilah.  Jordan thinks that she looks like a princess and he even gets to experience his first kiss, but his innocence and naivete get in the way, as Jordan reveals a little bit too much to Delilah about Clarke’s past.  Maybe Murphy should have a talk with him after all…

3

“My sister died a long time ago.”

Meanwhile, we learn that there is another group residing on Sanctum named the Children of Gabriel and they are very dangerous according to the Primes.  They use some kind of paralytic darts on Madi, Diyoza, and Gaia on the ship and keep yelling out “Death to Primes!”  It’s clear that there is some kind of feud going on here, but who are the good guys?  It may be a while until we find out, but this is a threat that should not be taken lightly. 

Bellamy, Echo, and Octavia watch from afar, but Octavia refuses to listen to reason and decides to just start attacking…you know, because that’s what Blodreina does best.  Later on, Bellamy decides to leave Octavia behind and tells her that his sister died a long time ago.  At the end of the episode, the Children of Gabriel capture Octavia and plan to take her with them.  Does this mean that Octavia has just found a new group of people to lead or is she in serious danger here?

2

“I will not apologize for saving the people that I love.”

Russell Lightborn seems to connect most with Clarke and she takes on the leadership role once again.  Clarke surprises everyone when she emerges in a gorgeous dress, revealing that perhaps she has the potential to be a princess as well.  Clarke is nervous about her dinner with Russell and his wife, as she recognizes that he holds the key to their survival.  Abby tells her to just be herself, but Clarke has a very dangerous past.

As Clarke sits down for dinner, Russell’s wife asks her, “How many people have you killed?” and further asks if they should really call her, “Wanheda?”  Clarke learns that Jordan spilled the beans and she just asks for a second chance.  Russell believes that she wants to change, but he doesn’t think this is possible and tells her that they need to leave.  It looks like Russell has been burned before and perhaps we will explore this more later in the season.

1

“You changed your mind…”

After Clarke helps save Delilah from being captured by the Children of Gabriel, Russell agrees to let her stay, but only after he sees Clarke’s nightblood.  It’s clear that having nightblood is very important to the Primes, but is Clarke now in danger as a result?  Clarke is afraid of them finding out about Madi, as she will do anything to protect her daughter.  Everyone can stay for now…except Diyoza, whose reputation precedes her.  How do the Primes know so much about Diyoza?  It seems like we have a lot to explore here, but I’m interested to find out more and let’s hope that our girl, Clarke isn’t in great danger. Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 2 episode 6: “I Hope You Like Missionary!”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 2 episode 6 on AMC, I learned that you should never mess with Villanelle.  Even if she is not trying to kill you, she will make you pay…oh and never pick up a muffin anywhere near her…ever.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “I Hope You Like Missionary!” Niko confronts Eve about his conversation with Villanelle, which puts more than a strain on their marriage.  Meanwhile, Villanelle shows off her impressive collection of personalities and accents after Eve asks for her help, but ends up revealing some truth behind the real Villanelle.  My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 2 episode 6 are:

5

“Looks like we’re both pretty busy…”

After the intense conversation between Niko and Villanelle in last week’s episode, Niko confronts Eve and asks her, “What do you want from me?”  It’s a fair question especially since Eve has been all over the place lately.  It initially seems like Niko and Eve are all right for now, but Niko changes his mind in the morning and reminds Eve, “but you’re not alone, are you?”  Niko temporarily moves out of the house and stays with Gemma, who is the colleague from his job that clearly has more than a crush on Niko.

Eve stops by and insists on coming in for tea, but she loses it when she begins going through Gemma’s things.  Gemma asks Eve what she is doing and Eve asks her if she is scared, almost like she is trying to channel her own inner Villanelle.  It looks like this may be the end for Niko and Eve and I can’t say that I’m really surprised, but Eve has a lot to work through.  She really needs to discover what she wants for herself before she can move forward in any relationship.

4

“Who do you want?”

Eve and her team are trying to figure out a way to get close to Aaron Peel so we can learn more about his dealings with The Twelve, but Aaron doesn’t really have many close connections.  The one weak link seems to be his sister, Amber, who is currently in recovery from addiction.  Eve comes up with the idea to enlist Villanelle’s help once again…only her services will not include killing someone.

Villanelle is eager to work with Eve and greets her with a chipper tone when she says, “Hi Partner!”  Villanelle is ready to play the part and shows off her fabulous ideas for her next “character.”  I have to say that I absolutely adored the New York persona, Billie, and her accent was far from annoying.  I’m glad she went with that one and I would love to run into Villanelle in New York!

3

“The only thing that makes you interesting is me…don’t forget.”

Villanelle tries out her persona, Billie, at an AA meeting, but the group sees right through her lies, explaining that she is throwing a self-pity party for herself and their group is more about honesty.  Eve is initially frustrated by this because Villanelle’s story was inspired by Eve’s life and goes off on her as a result, but Villanelle gently reminds her that she doesn’t like her that much and she shouldn’t forget that she is the one making her life interesting right now.  Villanelle may have an obsession with Eve, but she likes to do things her way and perhaps she is always the one in charge, so Eve better remember that.  Even though Villanelle is “working” for Eve, she may have her own agenda.

2

“I don’t feel anything…”

When Villanelle returns to her next AA meeting, she is ready to reveal some truths about herself.  Villanelle explains:  “Most days I feel nothing…I don’t feel anything…it’s so boring.”  She further explains that she just tries to find ways to feel something.  This was a huge moment for Villanelle, as she finally lets her walls down, revealing that she is not an empty shell.  Villanelle has been trying to tap into her humanity for a while now and this moment allowed us to truly see that.

I thought Jodie Comer’s performance here was fantastic and I was very moved by her revelations.  Aaron’s sister, Amber, is impressed as well and it seems like these two are going to begin bonding according to plan, but Amber’s sponsor continues to get in the way.  Even though Villanelle shows off a softer side of herself, she is still an assassin and she pushes the sponsor in front of a moving vehicle in front of Eve.  Seriously, don’t get in her way.

1

“You’re a bully…there’s only one way to communicate with a bully.”

Villanelle is invited over to dinner at Amber’s house and she gets to interact with Aaron Peel.  She has Eve and Konstantin in her ear the whole time, which is distracting, as Villanelle decides to take the ear piece out and do things her way.  Billie’s cover story includes her having two degrees in philosophy, but it’s safe to say that Villanelle has not really done her homework.  Aaron begins to question her repeatedly, but Villanelle does not waver.

Villanelle faces Aaron and tells him that he is a bully and the only way to communicate with him is to…strike him in the face with the book he tossed on her lap.  Go Villanelle!  I have to say that I LOVED this moment, as I cannot stand bullies myself and Villanelle really put him in his place.  Even though she may have just blown the mission, Villanelle proves that she is her own boss and we later see her following a pair of young women who have piqued her interest.  I’m not really sure what she has in store for them, but perhaps she has found a new obsession?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like Eve’s hold over Villanelle may be fading.  How will she handle it though?  Stay tuned!

My performance of the week ending 5/11/19 on TV goes to…

Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones. I have always been impressed with Emilia’s portrayal of Daenerys, but her character is truly being tested again and again in these last episodes.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  Daenerys has had to deal with so much and she has truly earned the titles of:  Khaleesi and Mother of Dragons, as she continues to break chains, inspiring hope where there is none.  I guess that’s why I was so frustrated seeing her presented as a “Mad Queen” now who is no longer fit to rule the Iron Throne according to some.

While I adore Jon Snow and feel that he has so many good leadership qualities, I cannot ignore the journey that Daenerys has been on.  She was left to burn and die in a fire and emerged as a hero with three dragons instead.  Everything about her character screams destiny and I can’t stop rooting for her even if I don’t always agree with all of her decisions.  But isn’t that part of the challenge of being a good leader?  Not everyone is going to agree with you, but it was aggravating to see some of her loyal advisors now questioning if she is the right ruler.

Whether you agree that she is the rightful ruler or not, I have been beyond impressed by Emilia’s performances, as she is channeling so many emotions at once.  Daenerys’s grief is overwhelming, but yet she is still trying to be so strong for her people, but will this turn her on a path toward revenge?  Cersei can really bring out the worst in others, but I’m hoping that Daenerys will channel that rage in a productive way.

What’s next for Daenerys?  I’m not sure who will end up on the Iron Throne, but I would ultimately love to see her and Jon Snow rule together.  I know that this may not be possible and others have said that she is “too strong” for him, but sometimes balance and compromise is necessary for good leadership.  I’m interested to see how it all ends, but I have continued to be impressed with Daenerys again and again and I can’t wait to see what she does next!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Best,

Amy Koto, TV Fanatic Girl

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” season 3 episode 21: “Harvest Happy Hour”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Riverdale season 3 episode 21, I realized that illusions can be extremely powerful.  If we believe in something strongly enough, it has power over us.  But what happens when we break that hold?  Does our world come crashing down or do we unleash even greater threats in the process?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Chapter Fifty-Six:  The Dark Secret of Harvest House,” Betty discovers even more secrets about the Farm, as Edgar tries to get her to tap into her darkest fears.  Meanwhile, Archie challenges Hiram Lodge to a boxing match and Ethel reveals the identity of the Gargoyle King to Jughead.  My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 3 episode 21 are:

5

“You are the illusion.”

In last week’s episode, Betty agreed to stay at the Farm, fearing the wrath of the Black Hood, but was this really the best decision?  In this episode, Betty has some one-on-one sessions with Edgar Evernever, as he uses some kind of hypnosis on her.  Betty begins to see another version of herself, which represents the darkness within her, as she is told that she has “the serial killer gene,” which apparently means that she has a predisposition to violence.  Betty continues with these sessions, but what she uncovers is even more shocking.

4

“I won.”

So, I initially thought it was a little ridiculous for Archie to challenge Hiram Lodge to an underground boxing match, but things started to make a lot more sense when I understood Veronica’s end game here.  After talking with Archie’s mom and her FBI friend, Veronica and Archie realize that they need to catch Hiram in the act.  What better way, than to have an illegal underground fight club going on with lots of underage drinking and gambling?  The fight is entertaining enough, but Hiram getting taken away was the real showstopper.

Veronica confronts her father and tells him that she has won, revealing that she knows what he did, but we know that Hiram always finds a loophole.  Later on in the episode, Archie goes to Veronica to explore their potential romance, but Reggie is already there.  It looks like Reggie beat Archie to the punch this time, but where does Veronica’s heart truly lie?  We’ll have to wait and see.

3

“Get your hands off my girlfriend.”

After some Nancy Drew investigating, Betty realizes that the Farm is harvesting organs.  Edgar tells the members of the Farm that they are undergoing some kind of procedure that will translate their mental pain into physical pain, while stealing some of their major organs.  Betty tries to warn her friends, who seem skeptical at first.  Cheryl initially tries to tell Betty that she has just booked her ticket to Shutter Island, but she starts to connect the dots as well when Betty shows her the proof.  Cheryl panics, explaining that Toni was just taken away for a procedure, while Choni fans everywhere held their breath. 

Cheryl gets Toni out of there and pushes her out the window so that she can get a chance at freedom.  Cheryl stays behind, which was beyond heartbreaking, but I am relieved that Cheryl and Toni are finally seeing the truth behind the Farm.  We know that Toni has broken Cheryl out of some tough jams already, so hopefully she will recruit the Serpents and the Pretty Poisons to help Cheryl and the others escape.

2

“They’re gonna come for me…”

Cheryl is not the only one in danger, as Betty is now strapped to the table.  Edgar tells her that they are preparing her for her “procedure,” but Betty reminds him that her friends are going to come for her.  Let’s just hope that Jughead isn’t too busy with his own discovery to rescue Betty.  It looks like she can use some serious back-up right about now.  Perhaps Alice will finally snap out of this trance once she sees that her daughter is in danger?  Let’s hope so!

1

“I can tell you who the King is…”

While all the commotion is happening at the Farm, Jughead has an interesting conversation with Ethel, who is now back in action.  Ready for the reveal?  Ethel claims that the Gargoyle King is Jason Blossom, but “that’s impossible,” as Jughead points out…you know, since Jason Blossom is dead and all.  Jughead doesn’t leave anything up to chance; however, and digs up Jason’s grave, discovering that there is no body in there…so what does this mean?  Is it possible that Jason Blossom is truly alive or is someone using his identity as a cover-up?  I’m not sure, but I definitely did not see this twist coming and I’m beyond excited for the season finale next week.  Stay tuned! 

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

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 2: “Isn’t this your home?”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 2, I learned that “not everything that’s miraculous is a miracle.”  But what happens when you are trapped within your circumstances with no way out?  Do you rely on others or do you look within yourself to find a way to survive?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Red Sun Rising,” Clarke and the others deal with the air contamination threat, as they begin to realize that any one of them can become a danger to themselves and others.  Meanwhile, Octavia’s rage continues to spiral out of control and everyone else on board the ship has to deal with some hijackers.  My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 2 are:

5

“Sanctum is mine!”

In the beginning of the episode, we get to see Alpha, or “Sanctum,” approximately 236 years earlier.  We see a small group of people there and watch in horror as a young girl’s father turns on everyone he loves.  This glimpse into the past allowed us to learn that this threat in the air has been around for quite some time and no one is safe.  So is there any way to stop it or will the group be forced to find somewhere else to live?  I mean, I think we are running out of planets and moons at this point…

4

“You’re both soft and that’s why you woke me up.”

We knew it would only be a matter of time before drama kicked in on the ship, as some hijackers come on board and lock our group in the mess hall.  Raven is not with them and doesn’t have many choices if she wants to save her friends, which causes her to wake up Diyoza.  Diyoza is ready for action even though she is heavily pregnant, as she takes down the majority of the hijackers and tries to negotiate with the remaining ones.

After Diyoza’s plan comes undone, Madi jumps in with perfect timing to help save the day, so it looks like everyone has officially woken up, but who are these hijackers and what do they want?  Madi has questions and so do I, as we learn that one could have been a Nightblood.  The surviving female hijacker is taken hostage, as she leads Abby and some of the others to Clarke’s group, but what do they ultimately want and can they be trusted?  I’m anxious to find out for sure.

3

“Let her live with what she’s become.”

In this episode, Octavia’s rage continues to spiral out of control, as she begins channeling her anger and beating up a wall on the ship.  We know that Octavia has a lot of issues to work through and she is all for placing the blame on anyone except herself, but it looks like she is going down a very dangerous path.  Octavia isn’t making any friends and it looks like she is enjoying her punishment, as they all begin beating her up, but Abby stops it and says that she will live with what she’s become.  Is this the right choice?  Can Octavia turn a corner?  We’ll have to wait and see, but perhaps she can put her fighting skills to good use when they get on the ground.

2

“We have no idea how to survive down here.”

Clarke and the others begin to take extreme measures, realizing that any one of them could have been exposed to the threat in the air…or the plants?  They all separate and chain themselves up to stop them from harming one another, but we witness the hallucinations tear this group apart, threatening their lives.  It’s clear that this threat is very dangerous and unstable, but we really don’t know much about it.  I’m actually extremely worried to see if Octavia is eventually exposed to this, as she is already channeling enough rage for an entire Wonkru army…

1

“Isn’t this your home?”

At the end of the episode, Clarke is reunited with her mother and the others, while the female hijacker looks around in concern.  It seems like the eclipse is now over, along with the threat, as a group of children approach them.  A little girl asks Clarke if they are there to take them home, which confuses Clarke and the others.  As if this isn’t cryptic enough, Murphy also has some kind of disease spreading over his body, so what does this mean for him?  Perhaps these children will be able to give us some answers, but why did it seem like the female hijacker was afraid of them?  Is it possible that they are immune to the threat?  Stay tuned!

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

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 2 episode 5: “Smell Ya Later”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 2 episode 5 on AMC, I learned that when it comes to a psychopath, “don’t add…take it all away.”  Take away everything that makes them human, but what if the psychopath in question is desperately trying to tap into something human?  What then?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Smell Ya Later,” Eve and the rest of the team are not getting anywhere with the new female assassin, the Ghost.  Meanwhile, Villanelle is thrown off when she gets her newest assignment, which causes her to enter into a proactive state of mourning.  My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 2 episode 5 are:

5

“The demon with no face…”

After getting nowhere with the Ghost, Eve is disappointed that she isn’t really fun like Villanelle, which sparks a new idea.  Eve thinks that they can enlist the help of Villanelle to get something out of the Ghost, since she seems to be absolutely terrified of her.  Eve decides to put a hit out on herself, which is extremely risky and dangerous, but Eve has been dancing with danger for quite a while now. 

Carolyn is on board and Eve is reminded that there is no paper trail on her.  Is Carolyn trying to get rid of Eve after she uses her?  I’m not sure, but Eve better watch her back.  When Villanelle gets the hit assignment, she is far from amused and asks, “Is this a joke?”  For a while now, Eve and Villanelle have been tapping into the qualities of one another, which has now blurred the line between good and bad.  What will happen when they finally come face to face with one another?  We’re about to find out!

4

“This is out of control…”

Kenny tries to talk some sense into Eve and reminds her that Villanelle killed Bill and that she is putting people in danger.  Eve suggests that Kenny find a new assignment to work on rather than dealing with what he is saying.  It seems like Eve has been dismissing the opinions of others for a while now.  First with Niko and now with Kenny, as she continues to let her obsession guide her.  But it’s not a good idea for Eve to walk away from all of the people she cares about, as they may be the only ones keeping her grounded.

3

“Will you give me everything I want?”

The moment we have all been waiting for is here, as Eve and Villanelle finally meet up.  Villaneve fans get some major moments between them, as the chemistry is off the charts.  Villanelle says that Eve doesn’t seem too surprised to see her and explains that she thought she forgot her.  Eve tries to tell her that this was her idea and says that she needs her help.  Villanelle is dressed for the occasion for sure, as she is “about to be in mourning,” but Eve tries to keep her cool.

Eve even takes the pills that Villanelle had, as Villanelle begins screaming for her to do something and claims that it is poison.  It seemed like Eve was trying to call Villanelle’s bluff here to prove that she wasn’t afraid and that she didn’t think she could kill her, but Villanelle reminds her who the true boss is here.  As Eve rushes off to the sink, Villanelle begins hysterically laughing and says, “Of course it isn’t poison.  Do you think I’m insane?  You’re too easy.”  This moment was laugh out loud funny, reminding us that Villanelle absolutely has a flair for the dramatic.  Villanelle agrees to help Eve, but is Eve prepared to be in Villanelle’s debt?  After all, giving her everything she wants may cause Eve to lose her own soul in the process, as she continues to dabble in darkness.

2

“Would you like to watch?”

Eve brings Villanelle to the Ghost, but begins to have second thoughts, as she realizes what she is doing.  Villanelle is ruthless and willing to do anything to get what she wants, but Eve is now an accomplice to anything she does to the Ghost.  Villanelle obtains the information that Eve is looking for and explains that Alistair Peel’s son is responsible for the hit and that he is apparently trying to sell some kind of weapon of interest to The Twelve. 

Eve tries to ask Villanelle what she did and Villanelle simply responds with, “Nothing you didn’t ask me to.”  Eve goes up to the Ghost who says, “Monster,” leaving us with the impression that Villanelle definitely did not hold back here.  Has Eve just unleashed her own monster by working with Villanelle?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but I love that these two have finally come together again.  It’s about time!

1

“You would think I was the bad guy…”

At the end of the episode, Villanelle pays Niko a visit outside of Oxford.  Villanelle apologizes for filing those complaints against Niko at his school, revealing that she has been embedded in Eve and Niko’s life for quite some time now.  Villanelle reveals that Eve stabbed her, showing Niko a side of his wife that he was unaware of.  It almost felt like Villanelle was revealing an affair, as there is something beyond intimate about their relationship. 

Niko does not seem afraid of Villanelle, but is there something more to this?  Is Niko innocent or is he perhaps somehow involved in the Twelve?  I know it’s a stretch, but anything could be possible.  After this confrontation, what’s next for Eve and Niko?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like Villanelle is not going anywhere.  Stay tuned!

My performance of the week ending 5/4/19 on TV goes to…

Maisie Williams as Arya Stark on Game of Thrones. I don’t think that I have ever cheered so much for a character on television in my life.  However, when I watched Game of Thrones season 8 episode 3, Arya had my undivided attention.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  All of Arya’s scenes had me on the edge of my seat.  Watching her fight the White Walkers was incredible and her character embodied female empowerment, but to a new level.  While some of the other male characters hid in the corner or gave up, Arya refused to back down and continued to fight.  Her father and Syrio Forel would be more than proud!

Maisie’s performance went viral on social media, as many fans began posting with the #NotToday hashtag.  Melisandre reminded Arya of Syrio Forel’s teachings when she asked her, “What do we say to the God of Death?” which brought everything full circle for Arya.  All of the lessons and everything that Arya has been through brought her to this very moment, as she now faces her most difficult challenge yet.

I love that Arya didn’t triumph with mere strength.  Rather, she uses her wit and her skills to outsmart her opponents, proving to be more than worthy of being the one to get that game winning shot later on in the episode.  Arya is a hero and she has been one of my favorite characters on the show since the very beginning.  She has grown up so much and I feel like we have all been there every step of the way, watching her mature and transform into a powerful warrior with a fire within her that cannot be put out.

What’s next for Arya?  I’m not sure, but I can’t wait to see everyone’s reaction to her victory.  Arya really did save the day, but the fight is not even close to being over, as we still need to tackle the fight for the Iron Throne.  It looks like it may be time for Daenerys to face off against Cersei, but one should never underestimate our girl and my hero, Arya Stark!  I can’t wait to see how it all ends!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Best,
