How to Get Away with Murder Season 5 Episode 4 Review: It’s Her Kid

There's a lot to unpack this week, from Bonnie finally being let in on the secret, to another win for team Annalise, but can we start with the most intriguing part of the hour? Why does Bonnie have Nate's phone in the flashforward? Why? We've been fooled into thinking Nate was a goner before (or perhaps that was just me) but with Bonnie being as shady as ever and Annalise's guttural cries at the end of How to Get Away with Murder Season 5 Episode 4, it seems very possible that Nate is the man in the snow. Nate has been given a ton of stuff to do this season, he's reuniting with his dad and finally seems to be in a good place professionally, so it makes perfect sense that now would be the time for him to die. One thing about this world that will always ring true; there is no longterm happiness. Just when you think things are going your way, you will be knocked back down to earth, and everything will fall apart on you. And no one knows that better than Bonnie. Related: How To Get Away With Murder Season 5 Episode 2 - Whose Blood Is That? Think about a time when Bonnie has been happier than she was here, gliding down the hallways ready to embrace Miller publicly and continue living her best life. Can you think of time? She was moderately happy when she was with Asher, I guess, but at this point in her life, she was in a great place both personally and professionally. And now her world has been completely flipped on its head. Annalise: She doesn't want to know any of this. Nate: How do you know that? Annalise: I don't. But you don't have a right to mess with anyone else's trauma. Permalink: I don't. But you don't have a right to mess with anyone else's trauma. Added: October 18, 2018 Now Annalise had to tell Bonnie the truth. That is not the kind of secret you just sit on and pretend like you don't know. And it's also better that it came from Annalise and not Nate. I found myself actually feeling bad for Bonnie, and that's an emotion I don't typically feel. Now that Bonnie knows, I have to imagine she will either throw herself into a wave of denial or throw herself into finding her son. The interwebs have been ablaze since the end of How To Get Away With Murder Season 4 with the idea that Gabriel is Bonnie's son, but that theory took a hit tonight. For starters, wouldn't Gabriel be familiar with the Winterbottom last name? I guess it's possible that Julie raised him as a Maddox and he never knew what her real last name was, but I'm not sure I buy that. The show is also being so on the nose with the hints that Gabriel is the missing child, that it makes you feel like we are in for something entirely different.

Law & Order: SVU Season 20 Episode 5 Review: Accredo

I've loved Rollins since she first joined SVU back in 2013. So I'm thrilled that Law & Order: SVU Season 20 Episode 5 was a Rollins-centered story. Rollins' pregnancy offered a ton of dramatic storyline possibilities for her, many of which were explored during the hour. Rollins has been having a hard time accepting that she may need help because of her pregnancy. She has consistently felt demeaned because Benson, Carisi, and Fin are treating her as more fragile now that they know. Her refusal to stay behind when Benson went to the site of a grisly murder was understandable, and so was her reaction to the brutality of the crime. Related: Get True Crime Files by ID via Prime Video Channels for Over 1,000 Real-life Mystery & Suspense Shows! Additionally, Beck kept asking a ton of creepy questions about Rollins' pregnancy and her feelings around it, and it seemed like she needed to get it together before he succeeded in manipulating her. Considering that Rollins is both a rape survivor and has suffered a similar manipulation at the hands of her Gamblers Anonymous sponsor, sending her into a tailspin in the past, it's no wonder she was losing it when it came to Beck and his disturbing obsession with her vulnerability. Rollins: Growing up, I had a TV in my room. Family Ties was my favorite. Alex P. I would turn the volume up as loud as I could to drown out the fighting and the screaming downstairs. We were not the Keatons. Benson: No family is. Rollins: My mom had this vase. He threw it at her and that was just before he beat the crap out of her. And I wasn't mad at him. I was so mad at her. How could she let him...? How? Permalink: My mom had this vase. He threw it at her and that was just before he beat the crap out of... Added: October 18, 2018 I wasn't all that surprised she got violent with Gina, but I wasn't expecting her explanation for it. Her blaming her mother for allowing the abuse rather than the man who abused her makes sense given the way she sometimes acts in the interrogation room. It's interesting that she went into police work to protect victims and put away abusers, given her feelings about the domestic violence she witnessed as a child. I'd love to see this conflict explored further later, but I guess we'll have to wait until after the baby is born. Beck certainly was a scary antagonist! The way he zoomed in on Amanda's insecurities sent shivers up my spine, and it seems like he did that to every woman he met. He had a nearly psychic ability to detect and identify his victims' psychological hot spots, making them feel more understood than they ever had before, and no guilt about using them for his own purposes. Lilah's devotion to him drove her to commit murder and to consider taking the entire fall for it. That's how powerful his methods were.

Station 19 Season 2 Episode 3 Review: Home to Hold Onto

Easy breezy Andy? Yeah, right. Andy was anything but on Station 19 Season 2 Episode 3, and pretty much every other time we've seen her. She may be trying to take everything in stride, but she's as uptight as ever. More than uptight, she's completely self-absorbed. She keeps making everything about her when she should be giving credit where it's due. She realized that she made the wrong call and nearly got that poor woman killed. Instead of focusing on the fact that Maya made the right call, she made it all about what was wrong with her. Andy: She would have died. If I had been making the call I would have waited, and she would have died. Sullivan: Well, I guess it's good it didn't go that way then. Permalink: Well, I guess it's good it didn't go that way then. Added: October 18, 2018 I'm not saying she shouldn't be questioning her decision making or that she shouldn't reflect on where her head has been lately, but the right thing to do would have been to say something positive to Maya. Something along the lines of "job well done" or "thanks for saving my butt" would have been appropriate. Talking to her dad makes a lot more sense. He knows her the best out of anyone, and he can help her figure out why she's letting the new captain get to her so much. Obviously, she's angry at herself for screwing up her chance at the job, but she needs to find a way to get over it, and fast. Related: Station 19 Season 2 Episode 2 Review: Under the Surface Captain Sullivan seems like a good guy, and more importantly, he's good at his job. He takes it seriously, and maybe he comes off as a bit of a hard-ass, but his firefighters' safety is of the utmost importance to him. Andy has proven time and time again that she's not ready for the position, but if she can get over herself for a second, she might be able to learn something from him. At the very least, she has to find a cure for the terrible case of foot-in-mouth disease she's acquired. Andy: He has it out for me. Maya: You keep giving him ammo to use against you. Andy: He keeps lurking. Permalink: He keeps lurking. Added: October 18, 2018 He's not lurking. He works there, and Andy is very loud. It was bad enough when she was speaking Spanish and assuming he couldn't understand her, but to think anyone wouldn't overhear her is just ridiculous. At least the moments between her and Pruitt are super sweet. Pruitt is struggling to adjust to living without her, but he has Ryan stopping by to check on him periodically. It might be time for Pruitt to get a girlfriend. ] Despite Andy's selfishness, Maya has stayed loyal to her friend. It's commendable, but also a little infuriating. If Andy was the reason she hesitated to apply for the promotion, I'm glad she changed her mind and decided to go for it. She's proven she can make the tough calls unde..

Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 4 Review: Three Shirts to the Wind

On Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 4, Murphy takes on author Ed Shannon whose views are entirely out of line with Murphy's. He's supposed to represent a hardcore Republican, and Murphy has to decide whether she's going to give him airtime on her show. She passes. Let me start with the positive in this episode because I feel like this one went from political comedy smartly done to preachy. It's a fine line, and this crossed it. But, as I said, let me start with the positive. Tyne Daly had some good lines that weren't awkward. Thank goodness because I was beginning to think they were wasting her talent at Murphy Brown. As a matter of fact, I spent more than 20 years in one of the toughest divisions of the NYPD. Parking enforcement. Phyllis Permalink: As a matter of fact, I spent more than 20 years in one of the toughest divisions of the NYPD.... Added: October 17, 2018 Phyllis had a chance to salute Cagney and Lacey, which was perfect, and then they had her flirt with Jim. The bit with Jim was flawless and cute. For the first three installments, Phyllis was coming off as a grump, but her moment with Jim lightened her up considerably.

It was nice to see Jim again, and although it didn't hit me at first who he was (it's been a while since the original Murphy Brown), as soon as he spoke, memories of him came flooding back. Jim has such a distinctive voice. It seems he was passing through town and might not be a regular, but I hope he's on from time to time. Jim's not only funny but a good sounding board for Murphy. Everybody needs one. Back to the subject matter of the show. Murphy was getting pressure from the network to interview a jerk to boost her ratings. I get that. It happens all the time. Murphy could've had Ed on and torn him a new one on her show, but was she right to turn it down? No, she didn't want to give the guy airtime. She didn't want to give him yet another platform to spread his word. A word with which she vehemently disagreed. Ed Shannon, so many shirts! Murphy Permalink: Ed Shannon, so many shirts! Added: October 17, 2018 I understand her standing by her principles and doing what she felt was right for her and the show. She had every right to choose who to interview. But she's a reporter. She's not supplying him with a platform. Ed Shannon already has a platform. He writes books, he's all over the internet, and he has a following. He doesn't need a platform on Murphy Brown. How does she expect to make a difference if she avoids every interviewee coming down the pike whom which she doesn't agree? "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is good men to do nothing." -- Edmund Burke Have you ever heard that quote, Murphy? Related:..

The Good Place Season 3 Episode 5 Review: Jeremy Bearimy

The Good Place kicked off its third season with a strong start, but ever since the premiere, the quality and plot of the show have been steadily declining. The Good Place Season 3 Episode 5 is a prime example of this. Related: The Good Place Season 3 Episode 4 Review: The Snowplow The personalities of the characters prevent the show from ever truly being substandard, but recently, The Good Place just hasn't managed to hit the audience with the same level of shock and interest as it's done in previous seasons. Although it was still a fun watch, the newest episode of The Good Place, unfortunately, fell a bit flat. Eleanor and her friends were surprisingly quick to accept the existence of the afterlife and their experiences there. It did feel a bit off that they believed Michael without question, but then again when you see a magic portal to another universe it would be hard not to believe in the impossible. View Slideshow: 13 Canceled Shows That Deserve a Proper Ending While everyone handled the news about as well as could be expected, Chidi's breakdown was a bit hard to watch. There were a ton of comedic aspects to Chidi's crazed reaction, but I have to wonder, was he really being all that crazy? It seems like Chidi was the only one who realistically handled the revelation. The world is empty. There is no point to anything and you're just gonna die. So do whatever! Chidi Permalink: The world is empty. Added: October 18, 2018 Who wouldn't want just to give up if they found out that hell was real and that's exactly where they were going? And no matter what good they did on Earth their fate was already sealed? Related: Orange Is The New Black Canceled After Seven Seasons at Netflix! Essentially, life just became a countdown to an inevitable eternity of misery. Anyone who doesn't suffer some kind of break down after that news is the actual crazy one. Michael: As soon as you learned about the afterlife your motivation to be good was corrupted, so you can't earn points anymore. So sorry for eternally dooming you. Janet: And that's our bad guys. Permalink: So sorry for eternally dooming you. Added: October 18, 2018 In contrast with Chidi's response to the situation at hand, Eleanor's reaction served as further proof to just how far along she's come since the beginning of the series. Eleanor's character development is remarkable, and she has very easily become the most selfless and open-minded person of the group. Her ability to make light of even the darkest situations helps maintain the tone of the show as well as ease the minds of those around her. See ya in hell. You know what I just realized? I always say that when leaving a room, but right now it's accurate. I will literally see you in hell. Eleanor Permalink: I will literally see you in hell.

The Haunting of Hill House Review: ‘Twas A Dark And Stormy Night

Wow, this show is one twisted, scary ride. As they make the push towards the latter half of the season, The Haunting of Hill House Season 1 Episode 5 finally allowed us to get a look at Nelly Crain. We know bits and pieces of who she is as a kid, but it took this hour to show us the adult Nelly, who was able to form a semblance of a normal existence for a brief moment in time. That is until the bent-neck lady decided to make her triumphant return. Nell's story is a haunting masterpiece. Of all the Crain children, she was tied to Hill House the most, seeing the visions of the bent-neck lady the very first night they arrived at the larger than life house. The lady who shaped so much of her childhood was dormant for so long until Nell was happy. Related: The Haunting of Hill House Review - The Bent-Neck Lady Returns? Nell's happiness with Arthur was a welcome change of pace for a show that relies on its moody atmosphere and pitch-perfect monsters to keep you on the edge of your seat. But seeing the montage of a happy Nell reveling in happiness and showered with love was, frankly, beautiful. Even though we know how Nell's story ends, we still need to know how she got there. And we still need to know what lead her back to the one place she would never want to be. Nell's sleep paralysis was brutal to watch and having Arthur's death played out while Nell was in the throes of one of her episodes was heartbreaking. We didn't get to know Arthur that well, but he seemed like a truly good man, and for someone like Nell, whose entire life has been marked by sadness and fright, that kind of continued loss is crushing. And Nell's new therapist wasn't exactly pushing her in the right direction. The months and days leading up to Nell's death were marked with erratic behavior and a desire to face the things she's been avoiding. And while coming to terms with her past was a noble idea, pushing Nell to return the house of hell was not. Related: The Haunting of Hill House Review - Mr. Smiley & The Floating Man Seeing the contrast between Nell's visions of her whole adult family in the Hill House versus the actuality of her walking aimlessly through a decrepit house was chilling. As she danced with her love and followed her mother around, I was holding my breath waiting for the moment the bent-neck lady reared her ugly head. But it never came in the way that I expected. He was dead. He was dead. And she was back. Nell Permalink: He was dead. He was dead. And she was back. Added: October 17, 2018 The reveal that Nell is the bent-neck lady and has been haunting herself is one of the craziest twists of all time. That was a "Sixth Sense" type of reveal that challenges so many things we may have thought to be true. And in The Haunting of Hill House Season 1 Episode 6 we get just a little bit closer to the truth. Hugh: She was worried about a lot more than Luke. Steven..

Manifest Scores Full Season Order at NBC!

Manifest will take flight for a few weeks longer at NBC. The Peacock network has handed a three-episode back order to the new drama series, making for a total first season consisting of 16 episodes. The backorder comes just four episodes into Manifest Season 1, which has solidified itself as a strong performer in the ratings. Manifest Season 1 Episode 1 debuted to 10.4 million total viewers and a 2.2 rating among adults 18-49 back in September. Numbers for the premiere swelled to 18.4 million viewers, and a 4.2 rating with seven days of DVR viewing factored in. These results made it NBC's most-watched drama series debut in 19 years, since the debut of Third Watch. Despite the strong launch, the numbers have softened somewhat, with Monday's episode securing 7.5 million viewers and a 1.5 rating. Still, it was the highest-rated scripted series of the night, narrowly edging out Fox's 9-1-1. Related: Manifest Season 1 Episode Review: All Good Things The true test will be whether the series can show signs of stability after dropping every week thus far. The shorter episode order is thought to be a creative decision in order to keep the show fresh. Manifest focuses on a select group of individuals who emerged from Flight 828 to find that they've been missing for over five years. For the passengers, no time has passed, but their family members have all started the process of moving on. Related: TV Ratings Report: Manifest Continues To Descend Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J. R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, and Parveen Kaur star in the series. Far too often when a TV series shows the slightest semblance of success, networks order nine additional episodes. While Manifest has emerged as a high-concept drama with a procedural twist, 16 episodes should be enough to keep things moving along at a brisk pace. Various hit shows have shorter orders nowadays. Empire clocks in at 18 episodes per season, and the same goes for This Is Us. Manifest is the fourth TV show to snag a full season order, behind Single Parents, New Amsterdam, and FBI.

Supergirl: Lex Luthor Arriving In National City Very Soon!

Supergirl is preparing for life post-Elseworlds. Warner Bros. Television confirmed in a statement today that Lex Luthor is headed to the hit CW drama, but don't expect him to appear in the crossover. Instead, Lex will show up in National City sometime after December's crossover, and we can only imagine the mischief he'll get up to. “We’re beyond excited to introduce iconic villain, Lex Luthor, to Supergirl and to weave him into our story this season,” Executive Producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller said. “We’ve talked about having Lex on the show since it’s inception and we’re excited to have him finally arrive. We can’t wait for him to shake things up in National City and watch him go toe to toe with not only Supergirl, but his sister Lena Luthor.” Related: Supergirl Season 4 Episode 1 Review: American Alien If you watch Supergirl online, you know that Lena has flirted with darkness throughout her time on the TV series, but is there a chance she could be swayed over to the side of bad with a little nudge from her brother? We sure hope not, but from a storytelling standpoint, it could be rather fun! No casting details have been revealed as of yet, but would it be too much to ask for Michael Rosenbaum to take on the role? Yes, he excelled at it on Smallville, so it's probably just a pipe dream. In any case, we'll stay tuned for updates! Related: Arrowverse: Elseworlds Poster Shows Role Reversal Supergirl is going all in with the comic-book characters on Supergirl Season 4.

Kirrilee Berger on One Dollar: It is “Not Just TV” but a “Form of Activism and Awareness”

If you're already a CBS All Access subscriber, you might be deeply involved in its murder mystery, One Dollar. If you're not a subscriber, you're missing one of the most convincing examinations of life near Pittsburgh, PA (sorry, This Is Us) and what happens when the class and cultural divides in a rust-belt town spill out into the open. One former child star, Kirrilee Berger takes on her first mainstream drama for a pivotal role, and she talked with me about the title "One Dollar" and its meaning, filming in and around my hometown, and the power behind the medium of the small screen. Read on! One Dollar on CBS All Access is at [now past] the halfway mark. How would you tease to my readers what they've been missing if they aren't watching? I can’t believe the show is already at the halfway mark! I know our viewers have been all over social media telling me they can’t even imagine what could come next! I think those comments say it all. The plot has so many incredible twists and turns. You never know what could happen next on One Dollar! What does the dollar bill signify and how does your character of Danielle Furlbee fit? I think the dollar bill in a way symbolizes America. So many of the problems in the US stem from money. Be it inequality, debt, political divide, etc. The show is like a looking glass on all the issues occurring in America right now. Danielle represents the fierce youth attempting to abolish inequality. She notices the issues in her town, and she sees past the financial and social hierarchy. Related: Get CBS All Access via Prime Video Channels for Hit Shows, Exclusive Originals & Live TV! It seems like Dannie is inserting herself into the mystery a bit. Can you tease at all what will mean to her with regard to her family and relationship as the series progresses? As a blossoming young adult, Danielle is experiencing life and forming opinions and reaping consequences from her actions on her own for the first time. I think much of how we view the world is from our parents. So, I think the journey of Danielle’s viewpoint in life is absolutely beautiful. I grew up just outside of Pittsburgh, so it's exciting to see a TV show take full advantage of the culture of the area. We actually spoke to a lot of locals about that! I’m so honored to tell their stories. What did you learn about the city while you were filming there? I was both fascinated and disturbed to see how accurate the portrayal was. The apartment building I was living in while in Pittsburgh used to be a fantastic Junior high school that developers tore down and made condos and apartments. Which is exactly the story of Wilson Furlbee. It gave me such perspective on the story we were telling yet also put a lot of weight on my shoulders as I realized- this is real. This is affecting real people. It made me realize our show is a form of activism and awareness. Not just TV. Related: CBS All Access Gives Series..

Narcos Mexico Trailer: Witness the Rise of the Mexican Drug War

After witnessing the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar, the action is moving to a whole new territory. Netflix has dropped the first trailer for Narcos: Mexico, and it teases a brand new location and a crazy new plot that's sure to hook audiences who loved the original series. "Witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire.

Michael Peña is on board to play Kiki Camarena, "a family man and an undercover DEA agent who garnered valuable intel through a series of informants around Félix and his newly minted Guadalajara cartel, but quickly found himself in c as he realized he had completely underestimated the sophistication of Gallardo's system." Meanwhile, Diego Luna is attached to play Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo (“Félix”), "the leader of the Guadalajara cartel, one of the biggest narcos in the history of Mexico and the founder of the modern Mexican drug trade. Quiet but bold, inscrutable but sharp-minded, to all appearances he is a benevolent leader, loyal to his friends, associates, and employees...but his ambition comes before all else." Narcos launched back in August 2015. The first two seasons focused on Escobar's reign in the world of cocaine, but the third season picked up after his demise and changed focus to the rise of the Cali Cartel Initially, a fourth season was in the works at Netflix, but the streamer opted to switch things up by changing location, and kicking off a brand new story.
