Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 9: “I Hate Missing my Favorite Show”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 9, we learned that hope can be extremely powerful, but when you break that last remaining glimmer, is it truly gone forever?

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

In last night’s episode, “The Trap,” Chuck kidnaps Sam and Eileen and is determined to sever his connection with Sam once and for all.  Meanwhile, Dean and Castiel head to Purgatory to find the Leviathan Blossom, running into some threats along the way.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 9 are:

5

“All good things must come to an end.”

Sam wakes up to discover that Chuck is holding him and Eileen captive in a casino.  Chuck reminds Sam that they are still connected, which is keeping him trapped and weak.  Sam tries to stay strong, as Chuck begins to reveal his plan, hoping that Dean and Castiel can get to them before it’s too late.

4

“That’s the way we’ll save Sam and that’s the way we’ll save the world.”

Wise words indeed, Castiel.  After Eileen tries to call for help, Dean wants to rush in to save Sam, but Castiel reminds him not to be stupid.  He explains that they only have a small window to retrieve the Leviathan Blossom from Purgatory, which will save Sam and the rest of the world.

Dean will do anything to save his brother, but Castiel continues to be the voice of reason here, recognizing that sometimes sacrifice is necessary for the good of the world.

3

“This is gonna hurt her as much as it hurts you.”

As Chuck begins to reveal his plan, we learn that he used Eileen to spy on the Winchesters.  He forces Eileen to start cutting away at Sam’s wound against her will and by the end of the episode, Eileen is ready to part ways with Sam, not sure if anything is real.

However, Sam gives her a swoon-worthy kiss and tells her that it is real, but it looks like Eileen may be safer away from Sam right now until he is off Chuck’s radar.

2

“You don’t have to say it.”

After Dean and Castiel run into some threats in Purgatory and get separated, Dean takes a moment to himself to admit that he was wrong and to tell Castiel that he forgives him.  Later when they are reunited, Castiel tells him that he doesn’t have to say anything and that he heard his prayer, providing us with a heartwarming Destiel moment for sure!

1

“I will make it better.”

Chuck gives Sam the opportunity to see the future, as we get several glimpses from Sam’s perspective.  In this future world, all of their friends are dead or gone except for Jody and other Bobby, but this future is dark and hopeless, as even Dean begins to give up.

The watch Sam holds stops on December 9th 2022, as Chuck explains that this is the end of the line.  Sam watches in horror as he and Dean are turned into vampires and killed by their friend, but he tells Chuck that there has to be another way to make it better.

Chuck reminds Sam that without him, the monsters will devour the world and take over, giving Sam something to really think about.  When Dean and Castiel show up to save the day, Sam cannot go through with smashing the Leviathan Blossom, recognizing that he has to protect the world.

Chuck is ultimately set free by breaking Sam’s hope, so now we have that to worry about that.  Later on, Dean reminds him that they will not give up and they will find another way, as we are left with a huge cliffhanger at the end, flashing to Jack and Billie in The Empty.

Is Jack somehow the loophole to stop Chuck’s plan for good?  Can Sam and Dean re-write Chuck’s story or are they destined to repeat the memories of other Sams and Deans from alternate realities?

I’m confident that the Winchester brothers will be able to write their own stories, as we inch closer and closer to the end of our beloved series, but will it end the way we expect?

Stay tuned SPN family!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 9: “Tangerine Tangerine Tangerine”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 9, I learned that sometimes it’s necessary to shatter the darkest parts of ourselves, but are they ever truly gone or have we just unleashed something even more dangerous in the process?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Sixty-Six:  Tangerine,” Betty’s life is put in danger after discovering that the Farm is using a trigger word to try and destroy her.  Meanwhile, Cheryl confronts her intruder, Jughead finds his grandfather, and Archie and FP team up to clean up the streets.

My top 5 moments from the Riverdale season 4 episode 9 Mid-Season finale are:

5

“It’s on.”

Veronica vs. Hiram…place your bets now!  Hiram shows off his maturity in this episode by trying to mess with everything his daughter cares about.  He revokes her liquor license and even starts calling some college recruiters behind her back, but Veronica is not about to let him stand in her way.

She lets her grandmother know what is going on, but it doesn’t look like Hiram has learned his lesson yet.  All hope is not lost; however, as the admissions rep from Columbia seems very interested in Veronica’s story.

4

“Let’s see how you do against someone your own size.”

FP has a talk with Archie and promises to help him send a message to stop these drug dealers from hurting kids, but he wants Archie to put down the vigilante mask for good.  Archie and FP actually make quite the team, as FP even takes out his Serpent jacket for the occasion.

After FP is shot, Archie continues to react on instinct and almost beats Dodger to death.  Luckily, FP will be OK, but it looks like Archie is in desperate need of a male role model.

And in walks Fred’s brother, Frank…

3

“You seize the opportunities you are given.”

Jughead wins the writing contest, so it looks like he will be the next ghost writer for the Baxter Brothers series.  Congrats Jughead!

Mr. DuPont reminds Jughead that he needs to play by the rules, but Jughead is still not letting go of the past, as he decides to track down his grandfather to get some answers.  After discovering that his grandfather sold the book over to DuPont, he starts to see the full picture, but it doesn’t look like the drama is over for Jughead just yet.

Jughead is now officially initiated into the Quill and Skull society, but it looks like he is going to be found dead four weeks later…

And so the plot thickens!

2

“I’m the Red Queen.”

I was so excited that Cheryl decided to tie in my favorite book of all time, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and of course she is our Red Queen.  After pretending to poison herself, Penelope Blossom reveals herself, confirming one of my theories.

Penelope explains that she is jealous that Cheryl has been able to find happiness with dead Jason, but you would think she would try and salvage her own relationship with her daughter.

Cheryl is not about to let her mother walk away from this and decides to keep her captive in the bunker.  Cheryl finally realizes that it is time to say goodbye to Jason and gives him a Viking  funeral down at Sweet River with all of her friends.

I thought this was an important and vulnerable moment for Cheryl and I’m glad that Toni and her friends could be there for her.  Even though Cheryl has a softer side, one should never cross the Red Queen, however.

1

“What did you do Betty?”

A good question for sure and of course we have to wait until January 22nd for new episodes to find out more!  During this episode, both Polly and Alice are hypnotized by a trigger word, tangerine.  If the word is said three times, they try to eliminate “Evil Betty” or “Dark Betty” and we discover that Evelyn Evernever is the one making the calls.

Betty decides to have a little chat with Evelyn at Shankshaw Prison, but it looks like her greatest threat might be herself.  Charles works with Betty and uses the word trigger, as Betty tries to go back in her memories to stop her childhood self from ever hurting her cat, Caramel.

It seems like everything works just fine, but when Betty turns to the mirror and says the trigger words again, she shatters it.  Betty tells her mother that the darkness is gone, but now we discover that she may have been the one to kill Jughead.

Personally, I can’t believe that Betty would ever intentionally harm Jughead, but this is definitely a twist I did not see coming.  Betty has been trying to stifle her dark side for a while now, but has she just unleashed something even more deadly in the process?  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 7: “I Kill Monsters”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 7, it may be true that “no one’s innocent,” but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t care so much.  After all, that can often separate the good guys from the bad guys and when it comes down to it, someone has to be the one to set things right.

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

In last night’s episode, “Last Call,” Dean catches up with an old friend named Leo, played by the amazing Christian Kane.  Meanwhile, Castiel returns to help Sam, but things take a turn for the worse when Sergei the Shaman gets involved.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 7 are:

5

“Are you two hung over?”

I guess I wasn’t too off about Sam and Eileen.  Now that Eileen is alive, she is spending quite a bit of time with Sam and it’s clear that there are some feelings floating around here.

Sam tells Dean that it’s not like that with her, but Castiel ends up interrupting a moment between them when Sam holds her hand, so I guess romance is not off the table just yet.

4

“I’m ready to help.”

When Castiel returns, he is ready to help, explaining to Sam that there may be some of his soul inside of Chuck.  When Sam fired the gun, a piece of his essence was apparently fired off as well, which sort of explains the link.

Castiel wants to probe/study the wound to find out more, but it looks like he is going to have to turn to an old frenemy to do so…

3

“You ever regret it…walking away?”

Dean decides to take on a case by himself and heads out to Texhoma County, Texas, where a girl named Angela has gone missing after leaving B’s Sugar Bar.  Dean winds up at a bar named Swayze’s and is reunited with an old friend, Leo, played by Angel’s Christian Kane.

Apparently Leo used to know Dean’s dad and Dean hasn’t seen him since college, but he used to hunt with them, so he is aware that monsters exist.  Dean and him spend the night catching up with some fun stories and we even get to witness Dean putting on a show stopping number with Leo, so I call that a win!

2

“I think we can beat God.”

After Sergei the Shaman double crosses Castiel, Sam is in great danger, but starts having these flashes where he sees Chuck’s memories.  Sergei is after the key of death (The Black Key) from the Men of Letters, but Castiel proves to be quite formidable when he shows Sergei a picture of his niece, threatening her life if he does not help Sam.

Perhaps Castiel has a future in the Russian mob after all, but Sergei does what he is told and Sam is right back where he started, still having the bullet wound.

All is not lost; however, as Sam suddenly realizes that Chuck is actually weak and they may be able to beat him now.

1

“I kill monsters…”

Christian Kane is no stranger to playing the bad guy, as we later find out that he is keeping a demon locked up and is feeding it victims to maintain money and power.  Dean takes out the demon with little effort because he’s Dean Winchester and we get a showdown between him and Leo.

After running out of bullets, Dean decides to get creative with his weapon choice and goes for a pool cue stick.  Dean can’t simply look the other way here even though he used to be friends with Leo.  Right before he dies, Leo asks Dean why he cares so much and he explains that “someone has to.”

I thought this moment was really important for Dean once again.  Even though the world is filled with monsters, Dean continues to fight the good fight while caring about others, which is easier said than done sometimes, but that’s why he is our hero!

Stay tuned SPN family!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 8: “I’m One Elizabeth Away From Exploding”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 8, I learned that sometimes it’s easier to open up to a stranger about our problems, but when those problems include haunted ghosts, daddy issues, and a hero complex, Mrs. Burble certainly has a lot of work to do.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Sixty-Five:  In Therapy,” The Watcher returns and continues to send creepy VHS tapes to the residents of Riverdale.  Meanwhile, our main characters take time to meet with the new counselor, Mrs. Burble, learning quite a bit about themselves in the process.

My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 8 are:

5

“Someone needs to step up.”

When Archie meets with Mrs. Burble, he explains that he doesn’t have any interest in going to college, focusing all of his attention on cleaning up the town of Riverdale.  Mrs. Burble tries to get Archie to open up about his father and it’s clear that Archie is embracing this hero complex a little too much, as Mrs. Burble warns him about the dangers of becoming a vigilante.

Mrs. Burble suggests that Archie come up with an anonymous hotline so that he can help others without getting directly involved, but as soon as a call comes through, Archie grabs his mask once again, so it doesn’t look like he is ready to step down from his vigilante role anytime soon.

We know that Archie is desperate to fix things and has the tendency to carry the burden for everyone else, but he needs to watch out before he gets himself, or someone he loves, hurt.

4

“I love you most too.”

The Cooper ladies are in desperate need of some therapy, although Alice is now embracing her maiden name.  Alice basically crashes Betty’s therapy session, as these two ladies try to air out their issues.  Alice says that Betty is a little girl, but once they keep talking, she blurts out that she loves Betty most of all and she doesn’t want to lose her.

At the end of the episode, Alice leaves a check for Betty to make up for taking her college fund and Betty tells her that she loves her most too, which was a sweet moment.

Betty and Alice have been through their fair share of trauma, but I hope this is enough to repair some of the damage between them.

Although next week’s episode looks really frightening with Alice holding a knife, so we’ll have to see how this plays out for Betty and Alice.

3

“Pause…you’re taking my Vixens away?”

Mr. Honey continues to be Cheryl’s nemesis, explaining that she will need to be cleared through a therapy session before he will reconsider giving her back her duties on the cheerleading squad.  Cheryl starts out with a guard around her, but actually opens up to Mrs. Burble quite a bit, as we start to realize how much trauma poor Cheryl has actually gone through.

Mrs. Burble tells Cheryl that she is “remarkably resilient” and I have to agree, but Cheryl finally starts to open up about talking to dead Jason and her feelings on Julian, suddenly realizing how crazy this seems.

Mrs. Burble has Cheryl take a test that determines that she does not have shared DNA, which means she actually didn’t consume Julian in the womb.

Cheryl may not be haunted anymore, but she shares Mrs. Burble’s theory with Toni, explaining that perhaps someone is messing with her.

Toni is hilariously catching up on some reading with The Amityville Horror, which certainly seems fitting, but now we have to wonder who is messing with Cheryl?

I can’t imagine that Nana Rose or Toni would do this and Cheryl already chased her relatives out the door, so is it possible that Mr. Honey is up to no good here?  Polly?  Penelope Blossom?

We’ll have to see how this plays out, but they better watch out.  Cheryl Blossom is not someone you want to mess with!

2

“You should try seeing him through your father’s eyes.”

Even though Jughead is at Stonewall Prep, he gets a session with Mrs. Burble when he is waiting for a transcript.  Jughead opens up about the mystery and scandal behind the Baxter Brothers, but Mrs. Burble suggests that perhaps he should focus more on his homework rather than this conspiracy theory.

Jughead is very guarded as well, but starts to think twice when Mrs. Burble explains that he should try to see things through FP’s eyes, reminding him how much FP has sacrificed for Jughead to try and do right by him.

This leads to a very nice moment between Jughead and his father, but will Jughead completely abandon his investigation?

Probably not, but at least he is getting back on track with his writing now.

1

“Veronica Luna is no one’s Cordelia!”

A shining moment for Veronica (formerly known as Lodge) Luna, who is beyond excited when she finds out that she received early admission into Harvard, which is her dream school.  However, this dream quickly becomes a nightmare when she realizes that her father got involved, now not knowing if she received admission based on her own merit or not.

Veronica has always seen her family as rather Shakespearean, but Mrs. Burble explains that perhaps it really is more of a Greek Tragedy.  She talks about Veronica’s relationship with her father being somewhat obsessive, as perhaps Hiram sees a lot of himself in Veronica and Veronica’s drive for business and success stems from her father.

Mrs. Burble explains that the only way Veronica can be free is to “kill her father,” although not with actual murder.  Veronica turns down Harvard and stands up to her father, saying that she is going to win in terms of business, so I guess that means she will be making rum now? 

Either way, this was a very important moment for Veronica.  We have seen her stand up to her father again and again, but it looks like she is finally going to take a stand away from him to find her own purpose and identity.  Go V!

Overall, this episode felt slightly transitional, although I think these moments gave us a chance to reflect on each character and their development over the seasons.  However, we did get some plot advancing moments, as we still don’t know who The Watcher is and we later discover that in the future, Donna and Bret are the ones who claim that they saw Archie, Betty, and Veronica killing Jughead, so it looks like we still have more to uncover with this mystery.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 6: “I Learned From The Best”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 6, we learned that even if we don’t make the rules, that doesn’t mean that we should give up.  What we do matters, but sometimes we have to see it for ourselves to be convinced.  Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Golden Time,” an old friend crosses paths with Sam and Dean.  Meanwhile, Castiel attempts a case of his own, realizing that perhaps he is needed after all.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 6 are:

5

“I know how it ends…”

In the beginning of the episode, Sam crosses paths with Eileen.  Remember her?  Well, Eileen is now a ghost and she escaped from hell, but she is now disappointed to find out that she will not be able to get into heaven either, as the Winchesters share what they learned from Kevin.

Sam decides to try and help Eileen by obtaining one of Rowena’s crystals, hoping that he can do something for her soul, but Dean wants to sit this one out for now.

I always felt a vibe between Sam and Eileen in previous episodes, so I’m wondering if there may be a chance for them now…

4

“You miss her.”

Rowena kept a secret stash for her powerful spells and documents, as Sam begins to go through some of her journals.  Eileen recognizes that Sam really misses Rowena and it’s clear that he is still feeling guilty about killing her, even though he knows it had to be done.

Sam comes across a spell that Rowena had been working on for their mother to bring her back to life and now suddenly realizes that perhaps he can finish it and help Eileen.

I love that we are still feeling Rowena’s presence even though she is gone.  Sam is the only living person who can apparently walk into her place unharmed and it seems like she has left everything for him to find, knowing that he would be able to continue her work.

3

“I learned from the best!”

Witches are after Rowena’s secret stash as well and the head witch plans on using Rowena’s spell to bring back her daughter.  Magic like this can only be used once, so Sam is not about to miss his chance to help someone he loves again.

After Dean shows up with perfect timing to help, it looks like Sam may be out of luck, but he ends up showing off how he learned from Rowena, taking down his enemy with a spell  of his own.  Go Sam!  Rowena would be so proud!

2

“It’s time for me to get back in the game.”

We finally catch up with Castiel in this episode and learn that he is on…vacation!  Well, at least he’s trying to enjoy some time relaxing and fishing, but Castiel finds himself caught up with his very own case after a boy goes missing.

Castiel agrees to help a worried mother and runs into a Djinn, taking him out, and reminding him that nothing will be able to protect him from Cass.  I was absolutely loving bad-ass Castiel in this moment!

Castiel heals the boy and reunites him with his mother, now realizing that perhaps it is finally time for him to get back in the game.  We need you Cass!

1

“Because we’re the guys who break the rules.”

Sam is able to use the spell to bring Eileen back to life, so I think it’s safe to say that perhaps romance isn’t off the table for these two.  Either way, this was a heartwarming moment and I think Sam really needed to do this to remind him that their actions do matter.

Dean is now taking his turn at feeling defeated, but Sam reminds him that he needs him and that they will find a way to beat Chuck/God.

Perhaps we need everyone back together again in order to make some real progress here, but I’m hoping that Sam and Dean can put their angst aside in order to continue the good fight.

Stay tuned SPN family!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 7: “I’m Not As Sweet As You Might Think”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 7, I learned that you don’t necessarily need a beach for the perfect getaway, as Bughead reminds us that “conspiracy theories and a murder mystery to solve” can be quite romantic.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Sixty-Four:  The Ice Storm,” everyone prepares for Thanksgiving, but revenge is a dish best served cold, as many of our characters plot their next moves.  Meanwhile, Choni teams up with Nana Rose for an appetizing feast, Falice’s dinner plans are crashed, and Archie continues to pay tribute to Fred with his selfless actions.

My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 7 are:

“A secret society?”

I was so incredibly thankful to get some well deserved screen time for Bughead, as Betty visits Jughead at Stonewall Prep for a romantic long weekend together.  Only we know that this weekend will absolutely include some sleuthing, as Betty and Jughead try to get to the bottom of Mr. Chipping’s suicide.

Jughead believes that there is more to the story and uncovers evidence that perhaps Mr. Chipping was in a Secret Society at Stonewall Prep that still exists today.  Members wear the mark of Quill and Skull on a tie pin, but does Jughead have enough proof to pursue this further?

Also, was Mr. Chipping blackmailed into suicide to protect the reputation of the Baxter book series or is there something else going on here?

Either way, I feel confident knowing that Betty and Jughead are on the case.

“Now we’re the horrible parents…”

Finally!  Some amazing moments for Falice!  Ever since Alice returned, I was waiting to see some screen time for her and FP and we finally get it during the Thanksgiving episode.  Alice and FP are looking forward to a dinner alone at Pop’s, but things get interesting when Hiram and Hermione show up.

Alice invites them over and it seems like everyone is getting along just fine until Hiram brings up trying to close down Archie’s community center, which does not sit well with FP.  FP reminds Hiram that he is not his puppet and we get a little bit of a scuffle between these two, but it does spark something within FP.

Alice reminds FP that he doesn’t necessarily need to choose between being a Serpent and a Sheriff, especially since Hiram wants to be a kingpin and the mayor…

Watch out, Hiram.  FP is coming for you!

“I love you. I’m so grateful to you.”

I’ve been absolutely loving the more developed story lines for Choni and they team up with Nana Rose once again to give us some hilarious entertainment.  We learn that Toni did kill Uncle Bedford and Aunt Cricket is still snooping around, which gives Cheryl an idea.

Cheryl invites her family over for Thanksgiving Dinner and asks Nana Rose to tell the story of the first Blossom Thanksgiving.  Seems harmless enough, but Nana Rose starts telling this dark and stomach-turning tale of how the Blossoms were forced to resort to cannibalism to survive.

Cheryl hilariously asks her family how they are enjoying the meat pies she prepared for the occasion and Toni even rolls dead Jason in for dessert.  Cheryl tells Aunt Cricket that Uncle Bedford will never be found and that she will expose her crimes if she even thinks of saying anything.

I was relieved to find out that this was all an act, but I’m not sure that the trouble is over for Choni just yet, as we still have the creepy Julian doll lingering around.

Either way, Cheryl and Toni take a moment to say how thankful they are for one another, professing their love, which was a sweet and beautiful moment for my favorite couple on the show.

“I think you’ve got a hero complex.”

I think Dodger’s mom might be on to something here, but Archie is not going to let anyone ruin his Thanksgiving.  Archie, Veronica, and Mad Dog plan a wonderful meal for the kids of Riverdale, but Hiram tries to shut them down.

With his mother’s support, Archie still goes through with the dinner, but Dodger’s mother shows up with some backup to confront Archie.  We see where Dodger gets his winning personality from, but Mrs. Andrews channels her own Dirty Harry to get them out of there.

After reminiscing about Fred, Archie decides to dedicate the center to him and puts up his picture, which was a beautiful gesture.  I think it’s safe to say that Fred is always watching over his family and he would be so proud of Archie.

It doesn’t look like this is the last of Dodger and his crazy family; however, as Dodger is now somehow missing from his hospital bed, but we’ll have to see how this plays out.

“I’m not as sweet as you might think.”

Classic Betty!  After Jughead goes to get them some food from the vending machine, he crosses paths with someone in a creepy bunny mask, holding an axe.  Our girl Betty saves the day and hits the masked threat with a golf club, proving just how resourceful she can be.

Only we find out that the masked strangers are Bret and Donna, who apparently just wanted to scare Jughead because you know, that’s fun?

This leads to an interesting game of Never Have I Ever, as Jughead tries to get them to admit something about the Secret Society.  Betty decides to do some sleuthing of her own and discovers the Quill and Skull pin in Donna’s room.

Donna claims that she was having an affair with Mr. Chipping and says that he treated her terribly, but Betty thinks that she might be lying to stall.  I think that Betty is absolutely on to something and we even see her channeling her own Carrie Mathison from Homeland, trying to figure out what’s really going on here.

Donna may be good, but she’s no match for our girl Betty, but this will certainly be quite the challenge.

Overall, this was a fun, jam-packed Thanksgiving episode.  The mystery is only getting started and I can’t wait to find out what happens next.  Stay tuned!
