Chapter Fifty-Nine

Jane The Virgin: Chapter Fifty-Nine

Season 3, Episode 15: " Chapter Fifty-Nine "

Love, dating, and (frankly) some horniness took center stage in the midst of romantic changes. On Jane the Virgin Season 3 Episode 15, Jane dipped her toe back into the dating pool, but her time away from romance left her feeling a little rusty. It's been a few years for Jane since she opened her heart, but the end of this installment tells me maybe that's not where she's meant ...

Can Rhea Break Mon-El and Kara Apart?

Supergirl: Can Rhea Break Mon-El and Kara Apart?

Season 2, Episode 17: " Distant Sun "

It was obvious from her first stony-faced introduction that the Queen of Daxam, Rhea, was every type of evil. The easy assumption was that it would take Supergirl a few episodes to get Rhea to that fully villainous place. That assumption is way off. Almost as soon as this episode, titled "Distant Sun," begins, Rhea lets her villainous flag fly and it's fabulous. Rhea is not what anyone would call a d...

Does Adam Levine Finally Use His Steals?

The Voice: Does Adam Levine Finally Use His Steals?

Season 12, Episode 11: " The Battles, Part 3 "

Night three of The Voice season 12 Battle Rounds features performances by pairings who are both similar and starkly different stylistically. The coaches are chipping away at the challenge of pairing artists together who represent a similar style or quality that would translate into a compelling performance. Adam is the only coach with both of his steals left, so let's find out if he uses one or more ...

Distant Sun

Supergirl: Distant Sun

Season 2, Episode 17: " Distant Sun "

Lois Lane killed Hercules! Well, sort of. Actually Rhea killed her husband, Lar Gand, on Supergirl Season 2 Episode 17, but honestly, who didn't see that coming? Rhea is crazy, and she's clearly willing to do anything to get her son back.  Well, I guess it is safe to say Mon-El is no longer the Prince of Daxam. Daddy's dead, so that makes him the king...


Criminal Minds: MOCKINGBIRD

Season 2, Episode 15: " Revelations (2) "

I don't know about you, but I think Owen would be the better team leader. On Quantico Season 2 Episode 15, there's still some team drama that gets worked out, but, for the most part, it's all entertaining drama. There aren't any petty high schoolers this time around, thankfully.  Let's start with the good: Owen and Clay's leadership battle. Clay is in a leader...

A Clockwork Swiss

Taken: A Clockwork Swiss

Season 1, Episode 5: " A Clockwork Swiss "

Nothing is ever as simple as it seems in the world of Taken. For instance, Christina got blackmailed into recovering sensitive data on Taken Season 1 Episode 5. That's a risk you take when you're running an off-the-books black-op team. You want none of what you're doing to get out. Yet, somehow, someone has gotten photos of the Defense Secretary's dead chief of ...


Bates Motel: Marion

Season 5, Episode 6: " Marion "

Well, that was an interesting twist. Marion Crane took her shower on Bates Motel Season 5 Episode 6, but the ending wasn't quite what we were expecting.  I was okay with it. Were you? I'm glad that Norman let Marion go because this whole hour wasn't about Marion Crane at all. Sure, the last couple of episodes were a nice nod to the Alfred Hitchcock'...

Madam Secretary: Convergence

Season 3, Episode 17: " Convergence "

The title for Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 17, "Convergence," couldn't have been more on the nose. We don't usually spend a lot of time talking about titles, but they're usually a little more enigmatic then this. The long running arcs finally started to fit together, and thank god we don't have to have another tease about Henry worrying about Ian. Personally, I don't care if we never s...

Picture Fades

Time After Time: Picture Fades

Season 1, Episode 5: " Picture Fades "

So Time After Time Season 1 Episode 5 gives us some hints that Stevenson isn't as stone cold as he has seemed to be so far. This presents some interesting possibilities but may backfire as his villainy is really the sole driving factor in this show. Having used the time machine to escape to Paris 1918 in order to find the son he never knew he had, he immediately kills a man for his ...

Who Does the Evil Queen Hate More Than Snow White?

The Case Takes Sam and Callen Undercover on a Flight to Tokyo

NCIS: Los Angeles: The Case Takes Sam and Callen Undercover on a Flight to Tokyo

Season 8, Episode 19: " 767 "

What's worse in this NCIS: Los Angeles episode? The fact that Sam and Callen have to go undercover unarmed or the fact that Callen gets stuck in coach while his partner gets to stretch out in first class? It probably depends which agent you ask, as the partners go undercover in "767" as businessmen on a flight to Tokyo to prevent an engineer from selling classified data.Meanwhile, NCIS: LA

Burning Love

Big Little Lies: Burning Love

Season 1, Episode 6: " Burning Love "

It's time to come clean. The pressure of keeping secrets was getting to everyone on Big Little Lies Season 1 Episode 6, and admitting imperfections seemed to be the theme of the hour. Still, not everyone is going as far as they should to unburden themselves with the weights driving their decisions and putting their respective families into jeopardy. Yes, Celeste, we're looking a...

The Flag House
