A Lost Cause

The Sinner: A Lost Cause

Season 2, Episode 3: " Part III "

Doctor Poole was a little over the top, wouldn't you say? On The Sinner Season 2 Episode 3, the sleepy town where Harry Ambrose grew up and from which he wisely escaped proved to be hiding a secret that stretches far beyond the walls of Mosswood. A lot of what's happening isn't adding up, and it's going to take a lot to make this mystery as compelling as the Cora Tannetti story...

The Horizon Leans Forward

Queen Sugar: The Horizon Leans Forward

Season 3, Episode 12: " The Horizon Leans Forward "

A beautiful day is coming, or at least that's what I choose to believe after Queen Sugar Season 3 Episode 12. Because I refuse to accept that all hope is lost or that the Bordelons will walk away from this fight.  What I couldn't believe was how quickly Prosper ratted out Charley to the rest of the community, especially since she took him in when he needed it the most.


Animal Kingdom: Homecoming

Season 3, Episode 12: " Homecoming "

Pope is on a suicide mission.  There was a possibility that Pope had every intention of doing in Smurf, but by the end of Animal Kingdom Season 3 Episode 12 there was a strong indication that the suicide kit he bought was for himself. It's a lot less messy than a gun. Pope only wanted the best for Lena, and when he couldn't be the one to provide it for her, he...

Girls on the Side

Younger: Girls on the Side

Season 5, Episode 10: " Girls on the Side "

Let me be perfectly clear, Liza is no one's damn side piece.  At least that's the conclusion she came to on Younger Season 5 Episode 10. There were a lot of different factors that went into her epic realization, but it's leading us to the place I figured she'd arrive at eventually -- she doesn't need a man, she needs to choose herself.  It isn't a "forever" de...


Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Gingerbread

Season 3, Episode 11: " Gingerbread "

Welcome to Salem 1692. Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 3 Episode 11 descended into pure chaos when the adults persecuted people of witchcraft. No one was safe from the effects of MOO! (Side-note: I'm going to laugh A LOT when using the acronym for Mothers Opposed to the Occult.) Witches, slayers, and intellectuals who love to read were all in danger in this spell-binding Monster...

Uncanny Valley of the Dolls

Elementary: Uncanny Valley of the Dolls

Season 6, Episode 16: " Uncanny Valley of the Dolls "

No one will ever look at Alexa the same again. Technology was a crime solver's friend on Elementary Season 6 Episode 16. Having a sex robot as a witness has got to be a first -- unless it was on Westworld. You knew something bizarre was going on when Sherlock arrived at the crime scene first, then called Marcus and Joan. And this episode was strange,...

How to Get a Head

Elementary: How to Get a Head

Season 6, Episode 15: " How to Get a Head "

Elementary can always be counted on to provide education on the obscure to its viewers. For example, viewers learned that politicians can be venal, greedy people on Elementary Season 6 Episode 15. Shocker, right? There was also a line, not at all straight, from a beheaded chicken and beheaded occult expert to rum bottling in Central America. It did ta...

Goodnight, Sweet Prince

Shades of Blue: Goodnight, Sweet Prince

Season 3, Episode 9: " Goodnight, Sweet Prince "

There was only one way former FBI Special Agent Robert Stahl was going to leave Harlee alone.  He had to die. With only one installment left, it wasn't a surprise that Stahl didn't survive to see the end of Shades of Blue Season 3 Episode 9, and yet for all of his creepiness, I'm going to miss him.  Stahl was different. He wasn't sleazy like Miguel. He wasn't pure,...


Sharp Objects: Cherry

Season 1, Episode 6: " Cherry "

It's not safe here for you.  That's what Camille was told by the figment of her imagination that came to her in the form of her deceased sister Marian at the close of Sharp Objects Season 1 Episode 6.  While it's fair to assume that a lot of what Camille is going through is linked to the scars from the past she's trying to conceal, I think her best be...

Into the Ocean

The Affair: Into the Ocean

Season 4, Episode 9: " Episode 9 "

If we're to believe Alison's story on The Affair Season 4 Episode 9, the coroner could have made a terrible mistake. We've never been able to fully comprehend what happens on The Affair, but the conclusion of Alison's life is a real head-scratcher because if we're keeping in line with how everything else has gone before, our assumption of what happened that night is that we will never real...

People Like Us

Fear The Walking Dead: People Like Us

Season 4, Episode 9: " People Like Us "

Do you know what's worse than walkers? Walkers that fall out of the freaking sky! On Fear the Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 9, Morgan and John have recovered from their injuries while the rest of the group try to readjust to their post-Vulture lives. However, that peace is short-lived when Mother Nature decides to visit them. Firstly, I need to express once again my disappo...

The Tom/Brady

Preacher: The Tom/Brady

Season 3, Episode 8: " The Tom/Brady "

So, Grandma made a literal deal with the devil.  Of course. On Preacher Season 3 Episode 8, the devil comes to Angelville, and straight to Grandma's because, apparently, she's got a direct line to Hell. It comes as no surprise that the source of Grandma's powers is from making a deal with the prince of darkness. What is a surprise, though, is the value...

The Devil Inside

Power: The Devil Inside

Season 5, Episode 7: " The Devil Inside "

There really is no telling where things are headed at this point.  The only thing that seems to be sure at this point is Kanan is about ten steps ahead of everyone. And by the end of Power Season 5 Episode 7, it may even be twelve steps.  He's well on his way to having Jason in his back pocket and Tariq as well. And neither Ghost, nor Tommy, nor Tasha for that matter seems to...

No Cure for Crazy

Wynonna Earp: No Cure for Crazy

Season 3, Episode 4: " No Cure For Crazy "

On Wynonna Earp Season 3 Episode 4, the show cashes in on all the messy craziness of not only the past three episodes, but the entirety of the past two seasons. This episode shows signs of the series slowing up after the fallout of Dolls' death and not throwing too many storylines into one episode. No Cure for Crazy starts as almost a Waverly-centric episode--which honestly woul...

What to Expect When You're Expecting...An Alien Parasite

Killjoys: What to Expect When You're Expecting...An Alien Parasite

Season 4, Episode 4: " What to Expect When You're Expecting... An Alien Parasite "

World's worst patient. Delle Seyah did finally give birth on Killjoys Season 4 Episode 4, running everyone on board Lucy ragged in the process. I like Delle Seyah, Act II. She's a snarky bitch to all those around her, but I chalk that up to hormones and missing Aneela. Sure, she was a murderer and a schemer in her first life. That was perfectly normal behavior a...
