Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 4: “NIMBY”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 4, I learned that having a difficult neighbor could turn your life into a living hell, but living next to the Milkovich family is like “living next door to a nuclear waste dump.”

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not watched the latest episode yet.

In season 11, episode 4, “NIMBY,” Frank, Liam, and Kev team up to try and get the Milkovich family to move out of the neighborhood. Meanwhile, Debbie and V face off during the Little Miss Southside contest and Lip meets Tami’s old teacher.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 4 are:

5

“Are we brunch people now?”

Lip begrudgingly agrees to meet Tami’s old teacher during brunch, but things start to get weird when he realizes that there are some old feelings lingering in the air. Tami tries to tell Lip he is way off, but later admits to dating her teacher when she was younger.

When her teacher returns with his new fiancee who is still in high school, Tami starts to see things as they really are. Good thing she has Lip right there by her side. I’m still not completely convinced by Lip and Tami’s relationship and I’m hoping that something sparks soon especially since it is the last season.

4

“I’m the boss.”

After Ian quits his job, Mickey agrees to hire him, but Ian doesn’t want to do anything illegal. This leads to some hilarious moments involving Gallavich decked out in military uniforms while performing their security run. The gig doesn’t really seem to pay that much, but it looks like they may have just stumbled upon a gold mine…

3

“We gotta figure out how to stop them.”

Frank is determined to get his new neighbors to move out and enlists the help of both Liam and Kev, making quite the team.

After several failed attempts, Liam breaks in to try and get the old lady residing there to give them some incriminating evidence, but all they get is way too much information about her sex life with Mr. Milkovich. So much for that.

2

“A little friendly competition never hurt anyone…”

It’s clear that Deb and V are way more invested in the results of the little Miss Southside contest than their daughters, but they both take things a little bit too far. Debbie is outraged when V calls a time limit on Franny, which causes her to convince Franny to give Gemma a makeover with a permanent marker to get back at her.

V actually gives quite the inspiring speech, but neither daughter ends up winning. At least their friendship is not ruined and it looks like V may have a new job opportunity now.

1

“Thank you Officer Gallagher.”

Carl is beyond excited to return for his next day of work and is “erect for police work,” but starts to have second thoughts when he ends up having to arrest people he knows from the neighborhood. His partner tries to give him a reality check, but she does take things too far on more than one occasion.

After making one suspect take off her wig and dress, Carl decides to do the right thing and return them to her. He even gives her a new carton of cigarettes and tells her where she can set up shop without getting into trouble. The act is genuine and really shows the character growth of Carl over the years.

Thank you Officer Gallagher!

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 3: “Frances Francis Franny Frank”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 3, I learned that sometimes “playing the long game” can truly make a difference.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not watched the latest episode yet.

In season 11, episode 3, “Frances Francis Franny Frank,” Frank attempts to take Franny to school, which ends up being more difficult than he anticipated. Meanwhile, Carl gets a new partner, Tami gets some heartbreaking news, and Kev shows off with pride.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 3 are:

5

“It’s like a piggy bank but it’s a keg.”

Makes sense to me Kev. It’s a “keggy bank.” Kev is splurging a little bit since they are raking in the dough with their new weed business, but V is skeptical about some of his knockoff purchases.

It’s clear that Kev is excited, but perhaps he shouldn’t go around flaunting his money to everyone, especially when he ends up getting robbed.

Luckily it looks like a new business partner will be joining in the mix to act as security. Welcome to the team, Mickey!

4

“Can I get a picture for Instagram?”

Debbie’s business is really taking off ever since her wrongfully convicted lesbian welder profile launched and she even has time to pose for pictures.

However, things take a turn for the worse when she needs to quickly find a way to deliver snacks to Franny’s school. Perhaps it wasn’t the best idea to “borrow” your client’s food and sneak out the window…

I’m curious to see that Yelp review!

3

“Try not to kill this one.”

Carl’s former partner has a 60/40 chance of recovery after his heart attack, but he now has a new female partner to work with. It looks like this new partner is the complete opposite and is ready to shake things up at work.

Carl actually gets to make his very first arrest and it looks like he even learned a thing or two. I think this is the start of a beautiful partnership guys!

2

“I’m not anybody’s bitch.”

Ian and Mickey continue to go through the power struggle known as “marriage,” which ends up escalating into a fight at the Alibi.

Luckily V is there to break it up and manages to put these two in their places, reminding them what a true partnership is all about.

Seriously don’t mess with V! It looks like Gallavich is going strong again with these wise words!

1

“Today is take your grand-kids to work day.”

Sure, maybe Frank made that up, but he ends up having quite the entertaining adventure with Franny after he fails to find her school. Deb is freaking out about where Franny is, but gets a harsh wake-up call from Lip about her parenting skills.

I have to admit that the best part of the episode was this team-up between Frank and Franny, which was beyond adorable. Her negotiation skills are top notch and Frank even convinced her about the importance of “playing the long game” to make her mother happy, finally putting on the dress to take her picture for “Miss South Side.”

Shameless season 11 episode 3 Frank and Franny

Frank’s sporting some new ink to honor his granddaughter and we even get a trip down memory lane and a mention of…Fiona!

Overall, I thought this was another strong episode. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

 

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 1: “This Is Chicago”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 1 season premiere, it’s’ time for last call for the Gallagher gang! While it’s bitter sweet for one of my favorite shows to come to an end, I have to say that what they have already done with the season premiere is pure genius. It’s not easy integrating the pandemic into a show, but somehow the Gallaghers did it perfectly, allowing us to kick back and get some much needed entertainment!

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not watched the latest episode yet.

In season 11, episode 1, “This Is Chicago,” Frank has somehow managed to get someone to film a documentary about his life and the history of the Gallagher family. Meanwhile, the rest of the family adjust to life during the pandemic.

My top 5 moments from the Shameless season 11 premiere are:

5

“You’re a natural born ass kicker.”

Who would have thought that little Carl would have grown up to be a police officer? I can’t say that I predicted that, but Carl has come a long way and his hard work is about to pay off. Sure, he may have flunked the written, but he is a “natural born ass kicker” and he’s ready to prove his worth.

Get em Carl!

4

“We’re a family business now.”

The pandemic has made it tough for Kev and V to keep the Alibi going (although they have their exit strategy planned to perfection), but they have a new business to pay their bills. Now that weed has been legalized in Chicago, the whole family is ready to contribute….even the girls!

3

“We’re supposed to be making these decisions together.”

After that beautiful Gallavich wedding, Ian and Mickey are quickly learning that being married isn’t easy. “I owe yous” aren’t going to cut it and they need to set some rules and remember to tell each other everything.

Gallavich Shameless season 11

It looks like both Ian and Mickey are willing to try; however, reminding us that our favorite ship is still holding strong. Seriously, I love these two!

2

“Debbie Does Everything!”

Everything? Well, it could have multiple meanings as Liam hilariously points out, but Debbie is ready to get her new business up and running…only she runs into a few problems when her statutory rape charge from Julia gets in the way.

Shameless Debbie Season 11

Images courtesy of Showtime

Due to a clerical error, it states that Julia was 7 instead of 17, which means that pretty much no one will hire her.

Debbie and Sandy are still going strong; however, and Sandy comes up with the genius idea to create an Insta account for Debbie, “Hot Lesbian Convict,” claiming she was wrongfully accused and treated poorly because she is a lesbian.

Debbie’s hot new account is certainly getting a lot of notice and it looks like her business may be safe for now. I have to admit that Debbie may have had the best mug shot I’ve ever seen…

1

“Family looking after family.”

Lip feels like he may have made a mistake with Tami, now recognizing that he is basically her bitch since he rented the house without initially telling her. At the end of the episode, the whole gang shows up at his house and it really did feel like home, however.

I think that season 11 is off to a great start and I can’t wait to see what the Gallagher family does next!

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 6 episode 7: “Damage From the Inside”

Happy Tuesday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 7 mid-season finale, I started to remember why I used to love this show in the first place. 

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

In season 6 episode 7, “Damage From the Inside,” Victor asks for Alicia’s help after Dakota goes missing. Meanwhile, Alicia encounters a cringe-worthy horror of her own.

My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 7 are:

5

“Now’s the time to do something.”

I think Dakota might be on to something here. Seriously…do anything! I’ve been sitting around waiting for something to happen on Fear TWD, but we are jumping around too much to catch up with characters in each episode and it is really slowing down the pace of this show.

Victor warns Dakota against acting too quickly and I have to wonder what his true plan is. I’m not even sure if we can really trust him anymore even though he cares for Alicia and the others.

4

“You’re the only one that can help me.”

Finally! Let’s reach out to Alicia for help. Good plan, Victor! It’s been quite some time since we have checked in with our girl Alicia and I have been waiting for her to do something truly spectacular.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 7 2

Well, after the convoy is attacked, Dakota goes missing and Victor recognizes that he needs to get her back before Virginia realizes what is going on. Alicia is the right one for the job, but she is clearly still pissed at Victor for sending her away.

That being said, an Alicia-centric episode is exactly what we need right now!

3

“I think this is one big misunderstanding.”

Really? Sure, let’s just make these crazy monster walkers for the fun of it…

While looking for Dakota, Alicia stumbles upon a cabin tucked away from everything with Charlie. Alicia goes in alone and I loved the horror vibes going on here. Can we get Alycia Debnam-Carey in a horror movie asap? Seriously, she has so much final girl potential and then some!

Fear TWD season 6 episode 7 Alycia Debnam-Carey

Images courtesy of AMC

Alicia spies on a man who is performing some kind of weird experiments on walkers, but is injected with something before she can get out of there. When she wakes up, she is restrained, but our clever girl is able to get out of any situation.

We learn that Dakota is there and wants to stay there, but I’m not sure that this stranger can really be trusted…

We get some retro music going on and a game of chess, but appearances can be deceiving…watch out, Alicia!

2

“Do we have a deal?”

Alicia recognizes an opportunity here and decides to secretly radio over to Virginia. She tells her about Dakota and promises her that she can bring her back safely, but she wants to be able to go free with Charlie.

Virginia accepts, but is Alicia really going to be able to turn Dakota over to her cold-hearted sister?

1

“I will do whatever it takes.”

Our new stranger decides to summon his “creations” and Alicia is forced to take drastic measures to protect them. Our stranger ends up on the wrong side of the stick and doesn’t last too long when his creations come in to feast on him.

Alicia, Charlie, and Dakota are surrounded, but luckily Morgan makes quite the entrance to help them out.

How does he always have the best timing?

Fear TWD season 6 episode 7

Images courtesy of AMC

Alicia is shocked to see him and listens to his plan, but does not like it when he says that he is going to trade Dakota to get everyone else back. We also learn that he was the one who attacked the convoy. Alicia understands that Dakota is an innocent in all of this and wants to help her.

We get more issues when Victor gets involved and shows his true colors…or so we think.

Alicia heads off with Dakota, Charlie, and Morgan while Victor pledges his loyalty to Virgnia.

This gives him the chance to see what she has been hiding and we learn that Grace is being kept there. It’s safe to say that she is going to use Grace to draw Morgan out, but we’ll have to see how this unfolds when the second half of the season releases in 2021.

I thought that this episode wasn’t bad and I loved some of the twisted horror elements, but Fear TWD needs to take a step back and realize that it is skipping around way too much between its characters.

After watching this episode, I realized how much I have missed seeing Alicia and this show needs to use its strengths moving forward if it wants to continue to entertain us.

Don’t let me down! See you in 2021 Fear TWD fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 6 episode 6: “Bury Her Next to Jasper’s Leg”

Happy Tuesday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 6, I learned that some things don’t really matter “as long as it gets us to the same place in the end.”

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

In season 6 episode 6, “Bury Her Next to Jasper’s Leg,” June has a new crisis to deal with at the mine. Meanwhile, our new mystery threat continues to spray-paint their way closer and closer to Virginia.

My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 6 are:

5

“I told you my job was to keep you safe.”

Have you been wondering where the hell Sarah has been? Me too! Well, she gets some well deserved screen time in this episode and she is putting her truck driving skills aside to help June with whatever medical crisis is thrown their way.

After losing a patient, June continues to try and resuscitate him, creating a close call for her and Sarah. Sarah reminds her that her main job is to keep June safe, but she certainly gave us some much needed laughs throughout the episode.

It’s about time!

4

“I can’t stay here.”

John continues to struggle with what happened to Janice and tells June that he can’t stay there any longer. He wants to create a plan to get out of there, but June still thinks there is good to be done.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 6 John Dorie

I think John has really lost his way and I was hoping that June would snap him out of it, but I’m not so sure anymore…

3

“I’m gonna help these people.”

Luciana shows up in this episode as well, but we are right in the middle of some kind of explosion at the mine. We quickly discover that this was not an accident and it looks like our new mystery group is behind it based on the spray-painting left behind. We also know that apparently they would rather die than say anything…so there’s that.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 6 Luciana

Images courtesy of AMC

June recognizes that she needs to do everything she can to save as many people as possible, but no one said this would be easy.

Either way, you gotta admire her spirit. Wes is in pretty bad shape, but it looks like he may make it out of this one for now, but his own spray-painting habits may get him into trouble moving forward.

2

“You may not like me, but you need me.”

So, I was initially really proud of June when a walker took a chunk out of Virginia’s hand. Virginia demands that June take her hand off, recognizing her fate, but June tells her no. Virginia talks her out of it; however, and tells her she will give her whatever she wants.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 6

Images courtesy of AMC

Of course, June wants a hospital and agrees to slice and dice Virginia’s hand clean off, but was this really a smart move?

I don’t think so and I’m not sure that anyone else does…

1

“I don’t want to run anymore.”

At the end of the episode, June is ready to stay where she is, recognizing the good she can still do. John tries to warn her that he fell into the same trap, but I think this decision might split these two up for a while.

June can’t see things the way they really are and while I appreciate all the good she is doing, she also has to realize that Virginia is essentially pulling her strings.

At least Wendell is back. Yay!

I’m not sure how I felt about this episode overall, but I’m anxious to see something major happen during the mid-season finale next week. I want Fear TWD to find its raw roots again and abandon the tired fluff once and for all.

Can it achieve this? I think so and I’ve seen glimmers of it this season, but we need to witness something epic next week for sure.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 15 episode 19: “Inherit the Earth”

Happy Saturday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 19, I learned that “when people have to be their best, they can be…and that’s what they’ll believe in.”

Please note MAJOR SPOILERS are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 19, “Inherit the Earth,” Sam, Dean, and Jack fear that they may be the only people left on earth. Meanwhile, some more frenemies show up to make things even more complicated.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 19 are:

5

“We’ll give you what you want.”

After Sam, Dean, and Jack quickly cope with the fact that everyone is gone…including Castiel, they realize that they may be out of options. We get a glimmer of hope when Dean finds an adorable dog, but of course Chuck makes him vanish as well.

Supernatural season 15 episode 19 Dean with Dog

Come on, Chuck!

Sam and Dean basically surrender to Chuck and tell him that they will do whatever he wants if he just puts everything back to the way it was.

Only Chuck doesn’t seem too interested and tells them that he likes this story now.

Let’s hope they can get Chuck’s death book open…

4

“Wow…way to treat a pal!”

We quickly find out that Sam, Dean, and Jack aren’t the only beings left on earth as Michael shows up with perfect timing to help them out. Michael is in Adam’s body and tells them that he vanished too, but can we really trust him at this point?

Meanwhile, Dean gets a phone call from Castiel and we hear his voice, but we know that it’s not Cass…and in walks another familiar face…Lucifer.

Lucifer is one of the best villains on any show and I’m always happy to see him, but we know that he definitely has some tricks up his sleeve.

Supernatural Lucifer

Images courtesy of The CW

After crowning a new reaper as death, they are able to get the book open, but Lucifer kills her before she can read the words out loud and double crosses them, explaining that Chuck is the one that pulled him off the bench in the first place.

We get this ultimate power struggle between Michael and Lucifer as Sam and Dean come up with a plan to create some kind of a ritual circle to get the book open.

3

“That’s not who we are…”

Chuck shows up during the ritual and starts beating the crap out of Sam and Dean, claiming he is cancelling their show.

Only the Winchester brothers are not out of complete luck, as they planned this from the start. They reveal that they knew Michael would double cross them and inform Chuck, explaining that after Jack returned from The Empty, he became some kind of power sucking vacuum.

Supernatural Jack season 15 episode 19

Images courtesy of The CW

That explains what we saw in last week’s episode with plants and living things basically disintegrating at Jack’s touch.

Jack absorbed the power from Lucifer, Michael, and even Chuck himself when he started beating on Sam and Dean, which now makes him powerful enough to stop Chuck once and for all.

Chuck seems overly entertained and shocked by this ending, excited to find out who will end his life, but Sam and Dean tell him that’s not who they are. Chuck will live out his life as a mortal and die…lost and forgotten.

Great twist, guys!

2

“He got us back online.”

With this act, we learn that Jack is basically the new God, which I thought was fitting in a lot of ways. I was actually really sad when Dean asked him to come back home, realizing that Jack would not be a direct part of this family anymore, but we know that he will always be present.

But I do have some questions. Jack was able to restore the world and we even see the dog return, but what about Castiel?

Does he have the power to bring him back? There are some other characters that still haven’t shown up in a while either. I’m hoping we get to see both Rowena and Crowley in the series finale, but I’m honestly not sure.

This episode was basically a season finale, but we still need to wrap things up. I’m thinking the series finale is going to bring us back to the very beginning, providing fans with the SPN nostalgia we know and love.

1

“Finally free…”

At the very end of the episode, Sam and Dean discuss what happened and realize that they are finally free to write their own story. They take a moment to remember everyone they have lost and we even get these entertaining flashback clips of some of our past favorite characters over the seasons.

In a lot of ways, this episode felt like the end, but I still want one more episode.

Stay tuned SPN Family! The series finale of Supernatural airs next week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 6 episode 5: “Honey”

Happy Tuesday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 5, I learned that everyone is fighting for something, but when that happens, “somebody’s gotta lose.”

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

In season 6 episode 5, “Honey,” Dwight and Sherry’s reunion is quickly interrupted by masked intruders. Meanwhile, Morgan attempts to convince the others to join his fight to form a new community.

My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 5 are:

5

“I don’t want you to get mixed up in this.”

In the beginning of the episode, we witness a reunion between Dwight and Sherry. They have finally found each other after all this time, but they realize that they need to figure out something in order to be together.

Fear TWD Sherry and Dwight 1 AMC

Dwight doesn’t want Sherry to get mixed up in with Virginia’s group, which complicates things for sure. Either way, I was happy to witness some happiness between these two…even if it was short-lived.

4

“Who the hell are these people?”

I was asking myself the same question, Dwight! Right after our reunion between Dwight and Sherry, a masked stranger breaks in, which instantly made me feel like I had changed the channel to an invasion horror film…not that I’m complaining.

Fear TWD Dwight Season 6 episode 5

Images courtesy of AMC

We quickly learn that Sherry is actually with these masked strangers and they supposedly saved her life. They all have been wronged by Virginia and want revenge, but can they really be trusted?

3

“You steal it…”

First an invasion film and now a heist…

Either way, it gave us a lot of action as Al tells them that they will not be able to destroy Virginia’s tank. She does know it better than anyone else.

We witness an adrenaline filled scene with the group overtaking the tank and Al had me nervous quite a few times on top of that roof. Be careful, girl!

2

“You lose something?”

After the tank driver saw Dwight’s face, Al worries that he will run straight to Virginia, but luckily Morgan shows up with perfect timing to save the day.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 5 Morgan

Images courtesy of AMC

Dwight and Al are surprised to see him, but Morgan is ready to get right down to business. He reveals his plan and says that they can find everyone, but this is easier said than done…especially since the masked riders have a plan of their own.

This causes a clash between Dwight and Morgan and we see some of the old Dwight flare up again during this episode. His moral compass wavers quite a bit, but we also know that he will do everything in his power to keep Sherry safe…

1

“I won’t let you become the person you used to be…”

At the end of the episode, Dwight and Sherry decide to go through with the plan, but Sherry shuts Dwight out, claiming she wants to stop him from becoming who he used to be.

Only Dwight doesn’t want that for Sherry either and intervenes with her plan. Dwight finally sees what Morgan and Al were talking about and realizes that it is too soon to try and take Virginia out.

Sherry ends up listening to Dwight, but there is a major cost. They decide to part ways only after being reunited for a little over a week, but it looks like Dwight is going to get his moment to start over fresh.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 5 Sherry

Images courtesy of AMC

He and Al fake their deaths so that they can help Morgan, but Dwight makes it a point to free the wild dog from the masked stranger camp before he goes, which I thought was so representative of his own inner struggle.

Sometimes circumstances can shape us into who we are, but we have a choice and if a better path presents itself, it’s up to us to embrace it to start over again.

Now on to our next set of characters…seriously I’m losing track over here.

We’ll have to wait to find out more. Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 15 episode 18: “Despair”

Happy Friday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 18, I witnessed one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking episodes on television of all time and I’m still not even sure if I’m ready to talk about it…

Please note MAJOR SPOILERS are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 18, “Despair,” Jack’s life hangs in the balance as Sam, Dean, and Castiel try to figure out a way to stop Billie from reaping their friends. Meanwhile, some old friends return and an earth-shattering choice is made.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 18 are:

5

“What do we do?”

The beginning of the episode starts off exactly where we left off. Chuck is gone for now and Jack is ready to explode…literally. Dean tells Jack they are not giving up on him, showing just how much he truly cares about him while Billie shows up with perfect timing.

Billie explains that everything was doomed because of the Winchester brothers and sends Jack to The Empty so that the explosion can be somewhat useful. We quickly find out that Jack is still alive, but now everyone has a new catastrophic problem to deal with…

4

“I didn’t know who else to call…”

Other Charlie makes an appearance in this episode and is enjoying some breakfast when her girlfriend vanishes right in front of her almost in Avengers: Infinity War style.

Charlie calls Sam and Dean and asks them why she was taken and not her, which is a very good question. Sam and Dean realize that Billie will be going after anyone who has ever been resurrected or lived in another world, which puts other Bobby and Eileen in immediate danger.

Sam tries to reach Eileen by text as they head her way, but she also vanishes and Sam’s reaction was heartbreaking, but he recognizes that he needs to temporarily push his grief aside to help everyone else.

So sorry, Sammy!

3

“We care about you because you’re you.”

Jack begins to feel useless, but Castiel presents us with another fatherly motivational speech, reminding him that they don’t care about him because he is some kind of weapon. They care about Jack because he is family and I thought this was really important for Jack to hear right now.

There’s already a lot of emotions stirring in this episode for sure.

2

“Let’s go reap a reaper.”

Sam and Dean split up to deal with Billie. Castiel says that he will go with Dean and Jack and Sam call up Donna to get everyone to a safe house of sorts, but things start to go horribly wrong.

Dean is able to fatally wound Billie, but she is not going to die without taking Dean with her. Even though Billie is the immediate threat, she does tell them that she is not the one going after their friends, suggesting it is Chuck cleaning up the world.

Poor Sam and Jack witness everyone they care about vanish before their eyes and I have to say that I was not prepared for the Donna one. 

Meanwhile, Dean and Castiel try to hold off Billie, but time is running out and this leaves Castiel with the inevitable option we knew was coming…

1

“You changed me, Dean.”

Deep breath…here we go. I knew this moment was going to happen. I’ve predicted it ever since I first heard Castiel make that deal with The Empty that we all wanted to just disappear into the void and I know many of you did too, but that didn’t make this moment any less heartbreaking.

I’ve talked a lot before about some of my favorite characters on television and the ones that truly resonate with me are the ones with the biggest transformations. Characters like Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cole Turner on Charmed, Olivia Blake on The 100 and Castiel absolutely come to mind. And the reason why is because of their journey.

Castiel’s journey on SPN is one of the most important ones because he never really understood humanity. Sure, he didn’t get the references and he had us laughing until our sides hurt when he learned some moves from the pizza man, but Castiel’s gradual growth toward humanity has been inspiring and moving to watch.

And at the very center of that journey is…Dean. I have really witnessed a change in Castiel with Jack, but I thought it was the right move to have everything come back full circle with Dean.

Castiel recognizes that Dean is going to die, but he has one last trick up his sleeve. If he experiences “true happiness,” the Empty will come to claim him for good, but it will also be enough to absorb and stop Billie, which would save Dean.

Castiel’s moment of true happiness is telling Dean that he loves him, which may have been one of the most brilliant moments I have ever witnessed on television. Misha Collins had me sobbing my eyes out. The moment was inevitable in a lot of ways, but I also can’t ignore the beautiful simplicity of the power behind the words of love. A love so deep that you feel it with every ounce of your body and soul even though you know that you may never hear the words said back to you.

Castiel’s sacrifice was enough to save Dean, as he was left alone to contemplate what had just happened.

Honestly, I don’t even know if I have really come to terms with it yet, but I want to celebrate the character of Castiel and I respect the writers of SPN so much for allowing Destiel shippers this epic moment.

Only two episodes left…

Carry on until then.

Stay tuned SPN family!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 6 episode 4: “The Key”

Happy Tuesday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 4, I learned that “a place is only as safe as people feel it is.”

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

In season 6 episode 4, “The Key,” John Dorie adjusts to his new life as a ranger, but quickly clashes with Virginia after he has his very own murder mystery to solve. Meanwhile, Morgan has an encounter with two strangers who are after the mysterious key he obtained.

My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 4 are:

5

“Dear June…”

In the beginning of the episode, we open up to John narrating, as we hear some of his love letters to June. This divide is clearly hard on both of them, but I thought it was sweet that he was trying to keep the line of communication open.

This is not the first time we have seen these two love birds separated, but let’s hope they are able to reunite sooner than later.

4

“You can’t help me even if I do.”

After John discovers that Cameron is dead on the barbed wire fence, he suspects foul play, giving him an investigation to look into.

He finds an earring at the crime scene and shares some of his suspicions with Virginia, but she reminds him not to stir up trouble. Virginia wants to maintain the illusion of “safety” no matter what in her community and we’re about to find out how far she will go to keep this image going.

Janis tries to leave the community and the earring is found in her backpack. Janis tells John that Virginia planted it there, but things aren’t looking too good for Janis…

3

“If you go down this path there’s no going back.”

Victor shows up and tries to get John to see reason. John wants to do what is right and is even willing to risk never seeing June again to help Janis live. John has always had this admirable moral code, but we are living in a different world now and Victor is going to do whatever it takes to maintain “the peace.”

While Victor’s motives cannot always be trusted, it does appear that he is trying to look out for John Dorie’s best interest, but we know that Victor has kicked other innocents to the curb for his own agenda before.

2

“You killed her!”

After discovering that poor Janis has been basically executed by walkers, he blames Victor and the two of them even fight over it. John is feeling defeated, but he receives a key of his very own from Virginia.

The key isn’t the only reward as June also knocks on the door and tells him that she has been transferred.

John is happy to see her, but there is also this tragic moment where John removes his rotten tooth. He looks in the mirror and accepts his new fate, but I think that John is feeling a lot of remorse about what happened to Janis. 

1

“What the hell do you unlock?”

I’m wondering the same thing, Morgan. At the very end of the episode, a car crashes into Morgan’s vehicle. Morgan and his new dog are all right, but the two strangers are looking for one thing…the key that Morgan obtained from the previous bounty hunter.

Morgan takes them both out and gave us pretty much the only action scene in the entire episode, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions surrounding this key.

The strangers don’t know who Virginia is so it’s safe to say that this key has nothing to do with her. 

We’ll have to wait to find out more. Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 15 episode 17: “Unity”

Happy Saturday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 17, I remembered that “we don’t give up on family.”

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

In episode 17, “Unity,” Sam and Dean continue to view things differently on how to ultimately take down Chuck. Meanwhile, Castiel helps Sam discover the truth while Dean and Jack have a heart-to-heart chat.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 17 are:

5

“You ever get tired of saying stuff like that?”

Sam and Dean are still having some issues when it comes to Jack’s involvement in their plan. Dean continues to remind Sam that this is the only way, but Sam is not going to stay quiet on this one.

Sam tells Dean that he is not going with them, but Dean loses his temper and reminds him that Jack is not part of their family. Of course Jack overhears, which was heartbreaking to see, but it looks like Jack is ready to continue with his sacrifice to help save the world anyway.

4

“True balance.”

Meanwhile, Amara agrees to Dean’s terms, reminding him that they will always help each other. Amara and Chuck meet up and she tries to get him to remember why he loved this world in the first place.

Chuck initially seems pleased by his fans, but the novelty wears off pretty quickly. Amara is not discouraged; however, as she takes him to the bunker and ends up trapping him there.

She tells Chuck that she can hold him long enough, but we know that Chuck always has something else up his sleeve…

3

“I need to say thank you.”

After Dean and Jack track down Adam and Jack passes his test with flying colors, he has what they need to complete the ritual. Once Jack absorbs it, he will not be able to stop it so they better be ready to go…

On the car ride back, Dean admits to his mistake from earlier and tells Jack that he wants to thank him for everything he is doing. He is giving him and Sam a real chance to have a normal life and I was glad that Dean finally let his wall down for just a moment to let Jack know this.

Whether Dean wants to admit it or not, Jack is their family, but maybe he doesn’t see it right now.

I think that’s all about to change…

2

“We have to stop it.”

Sam and Castiel work together, hoping that there is some other way so that they can save Jack. They know they need to contact Billie, but Sam can’t die to do so. Of course, they now remember that there is a key hidden in the bunker and after some investigating, they find it.

I thought it was actually really cool when Sam opened up the door in the wall, which could almost be its own separate adventure for him and Castiel.

When Sam walks through, he encounters Meg…or The Empty posing as Meg. Sam learns that this is all a power play and that Billie wants to take Chuck’s place so that she can return things to where they belong. But this would mean that old friends would die, demons would go back to hell and so on.

Always good to see you Meg!

1

“You always have a choice.”

Jack and Dean arrive with perfect timing, but Sam tries to get him to stop and listen to reason. Dean tells him that he has to stop Chuck, but Sam delivers an extremely touching speech once again.

Dean finally comes to his senses, but they may be too late. Amara learns the truth about Dean’s intentions and agrees to let Chuck consume her…or join with him…not too clear on that. Basically it looks like Chuck has shattered the balance and now contains both of their entities.

He blows open the door and tells the brothers that this was his plan all along, proving to constantly be one step ahead of our favorite heroes.

Chuck tells Sam and Dean to have fun watching Jack die before he disappears, leaving Jack ready to explode…talk about a cliffhanger.

Only three episodes left!

Stay tuned SPN Family!
