iZombie Season 4 Episode 9 Review: Mac-Liv-Moore

Liv got bars! The most delightful part of iZombie Season 4 Episode 9 (and there were a few delightful moments), was listening to Rose McIver rap during scenes or playing in the background. The hour managed to be fun while also serving as an information dumping ground. Miscellaneous bits and loose ends that were necessary in order to move the plot forward were sprinkled throughout the installment. It worked overall, but barely. I'm trying to recall, was there ever a genuine reason why Liv needed to be on rapper brain other than to be funny as hell for the remainder of the hour? She had that one vision, and she and Clive interviewed the victim's brother, but for the most part, the investigation came to a halt. It ended as soon as fugitive, zombie killer Cain was brought up. It was all about tracking down this zombie killer, but no one ever appeared to go looking for him, not really. Related: iZombie Round Table: Is Isobel the Key to the Brain Shortage? He didn't become crucial to the hour until the very end. It's unlike Chase to be caught off guard to the degree that he was when Caine came in. What happened to the guy who took out two or three of his fellow soldiers who turned against him? He let one human get the better of him. Why am I just hearing about this now?! I can't do my job if I don't know what's going on in the city! Chase [in a rage] Permalink: Why am I just hearing about this now?! I can't do my job if I don't know what's going on in... Added: April 30, 2018 Chase has been stressed out, and that was evident when he flipped out about Angus' congregation. That was one of the many info dumps of the hour. It turns out Major did put in his report that he and the kid cadets encountered Brother Love's congregation, but someone chose to withhold the information from him for whatever reason. That answers that question, but I wonder, what is going on at FG where Chase's soldiers don't trust him with information? The inner-workings of Fillmore Graves remains a mystery, but I can't be the only viewer who would love to be enlightened on all of the things going on over there. Related: Explore Hundreds of Hours of Curated Historical Videos with History Vault via Prime Video Channels! So, maybe that's why Chase was an easy target for Cain. I also wonder if Chase feels guilty about the zombie situation. Cain killed his wife and daughter because they were zombies, and he blamed Chase for turning them into zombies on D-Day. He holds Chase responsible for the death of his family because, in his mind, they were already dead. It seemed unlikely for Chase to allow Cain to shoot him in both kneecaps like that. Of course, Major was there to save the day as always. Chase doesn't trust anyone but Major. That's incredibly isolating for him. Once again we were treated to Major giving that puppy-dog face as he debated the moral implicat..

Good Girls Season 1 Episode 10 Review: Remix

Guys, I was not prepared for that ending. At all. Even though the weeks leading up to Good Girls Season 1 Episode 10 told me that our main trio would not make it out of this season completely unscathed, I was still taken aback by the final minutes. And all I can say is Good Girls better come back for a second season because there were a lot of loose ends left dangling out there and never knowing what happened would be agonizing. The plan to bring down Rio ended up tied to Ruby getting the money needed for Sara's surgery. And the plan involved another heist at everyone's favorite grocery store, the Fine and Frugal. One of the things that worked best during this finale is how many things came full circle. We began this journey with three suburban mothers doing what they needed to do to protect their families. And we ended this journey with them back where it all started. Except for this time, it was about more than just getting money for medications and lawyers. Sure, the cash grab was for Ruby, but the other piece of the puzzle involved leaving some information out there so the FBI could get a peek. Related: Good Girls Season 1 Episode 8 Review- Shutdown Of all the schemes this season -- and boy have there been a lot -- this one seemed thrown together the most haphazardly. And it was, given they came up with the plan and executed it all within a day or so. There is no reason why they should have pulled it off. And even fewer reasons -- why with cameras and eyewitnesses -- no one would place Beth and Ruby as the assailants, who mysteriously showed up as hostages once the police arrived. Between that and Tyler's questionable moral compass, the whole scene was a bit of a mess. But somehow the ladies got through it. Ruby got her money, and the FBI got their man. All's well, right? Of course not! What followed next was a cavalcade of heartbreaks, as Stan learned the truth and Beth found herself face to face with the one aspect of the criminal lifestyle she's never fully taken seriously. Stan [to Ruby]- You asked what it would take for me to walk out the door. You knew the answer and you did it anyway. Permalink: Stan - You asked what it would take for me to walk out the door. You knew the answer... Added: April 30, 2018 I've made no secrets about my love for Ruby and Stan, but this day was bound to come. Stan may be a bit preoccupied these days, but he's not dumb. And after one too many coincidences, Stan put all the pieces together. And broke all of our hearts in the process. Stan has every right to be hurt and confused and upset. Unlike the other ladies, Ruby's lies could have a major effect on Stan's career. Will anyone believe that he knew absolutely nothing about Ruby's part in the robberies?

Supergirl Season 3 Episode 16 Review: Of Two Minds

Not only did Supergirl Season 3 Episode 16 finally introduce us to Pestilence, but the three Worldkillers are all together. We should be gearing up for one epic battle! Will Kara find a way to get through to their human sides, or will Imra kill Pestilence to save the future? This could play out in so many different ways, it's hard to guess how it will all go down. In the future, only Pestilence survives, so does that mean we should start preparing ourselves for Sam's death? Perhaps, or maybe Lena succeeds in finding a way to separate Sam from Reign, and only Reign dies. Who knows, maybe they find a way to do that for all three. Related: Supergirl Round Table: Keeping Secrets Kara is adamantly against killing Pestilence (or anyone for that matter), and is determined to find a way to get through to the Worldkillers' human sides. Imra has seen the future. She knows Pestilence becomes Blight and she is just as determined to stop that from happening, by any means necessary. Which side are you on? If it's between her and the millions of people who die by the Blight in the future, I'm going to kill her. Imra Permalink: If it's between her, and the millions of people who die by the Blight in the future, I'm... Added: April 30, 2018 Getting through to Pestilence looks like it will be a much more difficult task than with Reign or Purity. We've seen both of them struggle with their dueling personalities, but Pestilence doesn't appear to have the same connection with Grace. Maybe Grace simply isn't as strong as Sam and Julia. But does that mean she shouldn't continue to try? Normally they wouldn't know what the future holds, and they would all have the luxury of believing they can save Grace without resorting to killing her, but the Legion has seen the future, and they know that whatever Kara tries will fail. While Team Supergirl does not condone killing, it's hard not to at least see Imra's point of view. Related: Get Comic Con HQ via Prime Video Channels to Stream Original Series, Past Comic Con Panels, & More! But, what if with Lena's help, both sides can win? If they can separate Grace from Pestilence, they can kill one while saving the other, thus preventing the future from happening and maybe even saving Imra's sister. Anyone who watches Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D knows that they're in a similar situation right now. They want to save Coulson's life, but Yo Yo knows that letting him die is the only way to stop the end of the world. It's quite the conundrum. All right, so we all knew that Lena keeping Sam a secret was going to backfire on her. Now that Supergirl knows, it's bound to put a strain on their friendship, despite the fact that she's keeping an even bigger secret from Lena. When Reign threatened Ruby's life, Sam practically begged Lena to bring Supergirl into the mix, but Lena convinced he..

The Terror Season 1 Episode 7 Review: Horrible From Supper

Cornelius Hickey has lost his mind. The once charming Mr. Hickey revealed himself to the be the true monster of the expedition when he murdered two of his fellow men on The Terror Season 1 Episode 7. He was just itching to thrust his knife into someone, and the food problem gave him the perfect excuse to begin his own reign of terror. I could be wrong, but it seems that Hickey was escaping from something when he joined the expedition. He might have been looking for adventure, but that might not necessarily have been the case. Hickey's got some serious issues. Eating another man is an act of desperation, but Hickey seems to think of it as sport. I don't know who Hickey carved up and put in that bag he threw at the other guy's feet in the tent, but he was too willing to indulge in an act of cannibalism to avoid starvation. Related: Get Cinemax via Prime Video Channels for Hit Movies & Series that Keep You on the Edge of Your Seat! The men aren't even starving yet. They need to find another source of food quickly before more of them go crazy, but no one else is thinking along the same lines as Hickey. He's an island unto himself. He might have seemed somewhat sane earlier, but dancing shirtless around his fresh kills was definitely a sign of crazy. I don't believe this is the first time he's killed. He's done it before. He was way too comfortable with the knife, and he was way too excited when he killed Irving. It wouldn't surprise me if he was a mass murderer before joined the crew of the Terror. The lead poisoning in the food isn't the reason Hickey is doing what he's doing. He's doing what he's doing because he's insane. The group of Inuits that Irving was talking to might be in danger, but the older man with the mask might be the one to sense some sort of danger. I hope they get out of there before Hickey goes nuts with his knife. If he kills all of them, he'll have enough food for an army, but right now they are a non-issue. Related: The Terror Season 1 Episode 6 Review: A Mercy The real issue is what he's going to do with Irving and the other guy. Is he planning to use them as food? How will he even get away with it? I was half expecting Hickey to turn around with blood all over his face from eating that other guy when Irving came upon him. There's a possibility that the lead is affecting his brain, but as I mentioned earlier, I believe he's always been a murderer and was just waiting for the perfect excuse to start doing his dirty deeds. The Tuunbaq hasn't reared its ugly head for quite some time and the men are starting to feel confident the thing was killed during its run-in with Blanky, but we know it's not true. Why the Tuunbaq hasn't come around is anyone's guess, but it could be because Lady Silence is keeping it at bay. Either way, the nightmare is far from over for the men even i..

Lucifer Season 3 Episode 22 Review: All Hands on Decker

When four mismatched women get together to plan a bachelorette party, you can rest assured it's not going to turn out as anyone would expect. That was one fun plot point on Lucifer Season 3 Episode 22, and the other involved Dan getting a new partner for while because the bride, his ex, was taking vacation time to plan her wedding to the police captain. It's like one big, happy (or miserable) family at that police station. Dan has become one of my favorite characters, so it was about time he was given some facetime. Kevin Alejandro has a lot more to offer the show than he's been given credit and seeing him in the limelight more frequently would only be better overall. Dan's been the leading character in giving advice across the board during Lucifer Season 3, and this time around he not only gave it but paid attention to what he was saying and what he heard from others. Related: Lucifer Season 3 Episode 21 Review: Anything Pierce Can Do I Can Do Better Dan learned from his own advice and advanced on Charlotte. Dan: But I never told you what I want. I want you. All in. The whole deal. So there. Charlotte: OK. Dan: Really? Permalink: I want you. All in. The whole deal. So there. Added: April 30, 2018 That's growth, people. That's what we want from every character. Did you see the look on Dan's face when Charlotte said OK? The two of them make a great couple, and I can't wait to see what's next. Hell, I'll take a spinoff and they can take the rest of the co-stars with them. I have to be honest, I was lost trying to determine why Maze wanted the wedding to go on so badly, especially after talking to Cain knowing he was going to help her get to hell even though he's now a man in love (gag) and wants to live. Vengeance is surely on his mind as the hour goes dark, but while Miss Prissy Maze was throwing what looked a lot more like a baby shower than a bachelorette party (OK, at least more like a bridal shower -- they are different animals), I didn't get it. Why did Maze have to keep things copacetic to get to hell under the circumstances? Surely since she, you know, BELONGS THERE, God would be hoping for her speedy return whether she angered him by messing with his earth-bound blonde and wayward son or not.

13 Reasons Why Gets Season 2 Premiere Date!

The tapes were just the beginning. 13 Reasons Why is returning for Season 2, and it's a lot sooner than you may think. Netflix dropped a teaser for the season ahead on Monday afternoon, and it revealed the polarizing drama series will return to the streaming destination on Friday, May 18. According to the official description, 13 Reasons Why Season 2 picks up “in the aftermath of Hannah’s death and the start of our characters’ complicated journeys toward healing and recovery." "Liberty High prepares to go on trial, but someone will stop at nothing to keep the truth surrounding Hannah’s death concealed." Related: 13 Reasons Why Review: A Captivating, Provocative Thriller "A series of ominous Polaroids lead Clay and his classmates to uncover a sickening secret and a conspiracy to cover it up.” We think it's fair to say that the tapes will be on the backburner as these pictures begin cropping up all over the place. 13 Reasons Why Season 1 was a roaring success for Netflix when it debuted in March 2017, but it came with a whole lot of controversy. There were debates about whether the series glorified suicide, and whether it was triggering to the audience.

Elementary Season 6 Episode 1 Review: An Infinite Capacity for Taking Pains

It took almost a year, but Sherlock is back, as cantankerous as ever. He's also facing a new challenge which promises to be a burden for everyone around him on Elementary Season 6 Episode 1. From what I can see already, neither Sherlock nor Joan are going to let post-concussion syndrome keep him down for long. At the tail end of Elementary Season 5, when Sherlock was being haunted by the ghost of his mother, it was obvious that something was amiss with the brilliant detective. I'd forgotten how much Sherlock had pissed off Joan with his behavior through that period. That especially made no sense considering, I don't know, she was a doctor. For that matter, he could have talked with ME Hawes. The opening scene between them was funny and kind of sweet, you know, for Sherlock and anybody. Related: Elementary: 11 Reasons It Still Works Still, since he didn't know exactly what was wrong with him, everyone could just chalk up anything unusual he did to his eccentricity. "That's just Sherlock being Sherlock." Sherlock was just protecting Joan while he underwent every appropriate medical test. There was no sense putting her in a position where she would have to lie to Gregson and Marcus for him until he actually knew what his situation was. Shinwell's hitting him with a bottle during the beatdown he gave Sherlock on Elementary Season 5 Episode 18 may have brought on this condition. But it's ironic that every bad habit he has made the situation worse. Now that Joan knows, at least as much if not more than Sherlock does, she will discover the best protocol necessary for him to recover as quickly as possible. It's a chance to use her medical knowledge to save her best friend from himself.

It will be important for him to have somebody to talk to as he heals. It's got to be difficult having his prodigious brain malfunctioning. I still don't see him meditating or running on a treadmill in their new exercise room, however. His mind races too fast for either of those activities to be beneficial. Other than having a couple of symptoms, Sherlock wasn't slowed down much by his condition this episode. Fortunately, this wasn't the most challenging of cases, so he could ease his way back in. Quelle surprise! The husband, who stood to gain the most from the two murders, did it. The fact that Ryan was played by Brett Dalton, the treacherous Ward from the early seasons of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, made it a no-brainer. In this era of absolutely everything private ending up on line, a leaked sex tape-related storyline was inevitable. But leaking the sex tape in order to activate a morals buyout clause was an unusual twist. So was timing a divorce so that would happen after the buyout.

The Originals Round Table: Is Hayley Already Dead?!

There's something odd going on in New Orleans. Hayley's whereabouts were revealed on The Originals Season 5 Episode 2, but she went missing soon after being found. Below, TV Fanatics Lizzy Buczak, Justin Carreiro and Paul Dailly discuss what's going on, the end of a relationship and so much more. Hope lured Klaus back to New Orleans by hiding Hayley. React. Lizzy: I called it. It was pretty obvious after her brief chat with Kol. The idea hit her when he said: "something always brings the siblings back to New Orleans." She's troubled -- she misses her father and wants a relationship with him so badly, she'll do anything. But now, she feels guilty because she didn't anticipate that something would actually happen to her mother. Related: The Originals Season 5 Episode 2 Review: One Wrong Turn On Bourbon Justin: I’m not surprised because The Originals needed a way to bring Klaus back to New Orleans. Family is important to him, and Hope and Hayley are his direct family members besides his siblings, so he’d come help at any cost. Though, having it be Hope was a bit surprising. She’s cunning just like her family members. Paul: It surprised me. I never thought Hope would inherit her father's skillset when it came to deception. Hope is on fire, and I hope the spinoff goes ahead. What is your theory for what happened to Hayley? Lizzy: No idea. Maybe something to do with the Hollow or Klaus and Hope being in such close proximity? Maybe Declan, her new boyfriend, is some kind of warlock or longtime Mikealson enemy? Justin: I’m on the fence as well. Since this is The Originals’ final season, I wouldn’t be surprised if a character from the past re-emerges to cause some trouble for one last time. Paul: Yeah, it would be fitting to have a face from the past one last time. So long as it's not Esther, I'll be happy. What are your thoughts on Freya calling it quits with Keelin? Lizzy: They were such a great couple but like most of the Mikealson clan, Freya is devoted to her family. Family comes first and when they are in trouble, that's her priority. She needs to be fully focused on the task at hand. Her decision to end things was selfless; she didn't want to keep holding Keelin back because she doesn't deserve to have a partner that's only halfway in. She was also prioritizing her safety. This likely isn't the end of Freya and Keelin but until Freya can find a solution, they're better apart. Justin: So sad! I had such high hopes for them and wanted Freya to have a true happy ending with someone she loved. Though, happy endings are never a reality in this universe, so their break-up was an inevitability. Hopefully when the drama comes to an end, they’ll reunite or she’ll find someone to go all in with. Paul: I think it was more of a pause on the relationship because Freya knew she could not fully commit to the love of her life while trying to s..

Riverdale Round Table: Veronica Saves The Day

Nick St. Clair kidnapped Archie as revenge against Veronica, Cheryl wrote a scathing editorial about Sheriff Keller, and Chic's real identity was revealed on Riverdale Season 2 Episode 19. Below, TV Fanatics Jack Ori, Paul Dailly, and Justin Carreiro debate Betty giving up Chic to The Black Hood, the true fate of Charles Cooper, and Archie's motivations after surviving the kidnapping. 1. Veronica went against her parents' wishes to defeat Nick St. Clair and save Archie. Could this be the point where she turns against her family? Jack: It certainly seems so, and with good reason. Archie has been nothing but loyal to Hiram and the Lodges did nothing to help him. The thing is, though, I think she expected Archie to be angry too and instead he became more ruthless in his determination to get Hiram's approval. Paul: I agree. I love that the writers are going this route with the character. She was great in all of her scenes and it was pretty obvious she was not sleeping with Nick. She had revenge in mind. Justin: I think so. She's been siding with Hiram and Hermione for so long, but she did so with the caveat that Archie would be safe and protected from the family business. Now that he was put in danger, and that her family did NOTHING to help him, she must realize now that they're the villains and she can't work with them. 2. Chic wasn't really Charles Cooper and he killed him. React! Jack: I wasn't surprised once it was all revealed. It made sense given the fact that Chic was violent and weird. I felt so bad for Alice. Paul: I was surprised. I feel like this plot should have been resolved sooner, but I'm glad that Chic is finally out of the picture. Alice must feel awful right about now. Related: Riverdale Season 2 Episode 19 Review: Chapter Thirty-Two: Prisoners Justin: This revelation blew me away because like Paul said, I expected this type of reveal to have happened much sooner. Betty and Chic had a shared darkness, so I thought they were siblings. But, it made sense since the entire family is completely different than him beyond that evil. Watch Riverdale Season 2 Episode 19 Online 3. Sheriff Keller quit his post after a public outcry. Was the town right to place the blame on him? Jack: Yes and no. Certainly he should have done more to keep everyone safe, whether or not he expected The Black Hood to be resurrected. But, he had very incomplete info since people kept hiding communications with The Black Hood from him and as far as he knew, the guy was dead. Paul: I don't think he did enough to keep everyone safe, so there needed to be a change or else people would have lost faith in the law. Justin: Like I said in the review for Riverdale Season 2 Episode 19, I felt bad for him because he shouldn't have received all the blame. However, it's quite telling when a group of teenagers were the ones to constantly solve his biggest crimes. He's not doi..
