Trust is the name of the game on season 6 of Scandal. Now that we know Eli killed Vargas, now we just have to figure out why. Well, we know he was being threatened, but just who is this new group? And while we're no closer to finding out who the group is, "A Traitor Among Us," leaves us with more questions about just who is to be trusted among our core Scandal characters. Olivia asks Huck to kill Eli, but Huck thinks something else is going on. His judgment gets clouded when his emotions get inv...]]>

<![CDATA[Will Owen & Amelia's Marriage Survive?]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Grey-s-Anatomy/Season-13/episode-17/reviews/Will-Owen-Amelia-s-Marriage-Survive
Following the last self-contained episode (Japril, The Sequel), Grey's Anatomy's "Till I Hear it From You" returned to the show's usual format. It was a heartbreaking hour in which Maggie finally found out the truth about her mother's health, Meredith and Nathan's relationship took a baby step forward while Owen and Amelia's marriage imploded. Meanwhile, Miranda and Arizona both tried to mend fences with Richard, Andrew made a startling confession, and Stephanie took stock of her life.Grey's Ana...]]>

<![CDATA[A Traitor Among Us]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Scandal/Season-6/episode-7/reviews/A-Traitor-Among-Us
What the HUCK just happened? On Scandal Season 6 Episode 7, Huck was on a mission to find out the truth, but did it really get him murdered in the process? Let's start with Meg. There was something out of the ordinary with her. That's for sure. Her whole act as this poor defenseless victim was clearly a ruse. I called it at the top of the hour, and my suspicions only grew stronger as the hour went on.  Huck really battled with whether to kill her, but she managed to s...]]>

<![CDATA[Lost Boy]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Colony/Season-2/episode-11/reviews/Lost-Boy
Now THAT was an ending. For some reason, that ending didn't even cross my mind while watching Colony Season 2 Episode 11, but now I fear for the lives of Will, Katie, Gracie and Charlie. A "Lost Boy" with that much emptiness in his eyes won't have much care for his blood relatives in the long run. He's on a new, exciting path. At this point in the story, I don't even know where I stand anymore. Everything has become so confusing. Not confusing as to the need to fight ag...]]>

<![CDATA[Till I Hear It From You]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Grey-s-Anatomy/Season-13/episode-17/reviews/Till-I-Hear-It-From-You
What an unsettling hour. I can honestly say that Grey's Anatomy Season 13 Episode 17 left me with conflicted feelings on many things. It left me with a few questions as well.  Montana was a breath of fresh air and a welcome reprieve. The return to Grey Sloan Memorial brought with it, the messiness that is so many characters' personal lives. The hour chose to focus mostly on Maggie, as her mother returned, and Owen and Amelia's crumbling marriage. Maggie tends to be an...]]>

<![CDATA[Redemption Season 1 Episode 5 Review]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Blacklist-Redemption/Season-1/episode-5/reviews/Redemption-Season-1-Episode-5-Review
So Howard isn't crazy after all. Tom almost let the cat out of the bag on The Blacklist: Redemption Season 1 Episode 5, but seeing the comic book peeking out of Scottie's magazine rack stopped him cold. Howard even admitted early in the hour that he must sound crazy, handing Tom a piece of paper and talking about secret messages. Then later when he talked about the comic book, that was all Tom needed to hear to realize that Howard really was a nutcase. So he thought. ...]]>

<![CDATA[Backfire]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Designated-Survivor/Season-1/episode-13/reviews/Backfire-37828
Nobody ever said being President was going to be easy. On Designated Survivor Season 1 Episode 13, Tom had to make some tough choices as he dealt with the aftermath of the MacLeish tragedy. It's hard to believe that Tom has only been President for only weeks. It seems like a lifetime, doesn't it? So much has happened in such a short time and none of it has been easy. The one constant in his life has been his wife and kids, but because of the nature of the job, he's bare...]]>

<![CDATA[Bad Blood]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Major-Crimes/Season-5/episode-18/reviews/Bad-Blood-37827
Ricky is back! The last time I saw him, he was extremely annoying. He was judgmental of Rusty, who he was sure was trying to pull a fast one, and tried to talk Sharon out of adopting him.  On Major Crimes Season 5 Episode 18, he wasn't much better. Sure, he has accepted Rusty as his brother now, but that just meant roping him into his plans to get Andy's marriage annulled for him despite Sharon's strong desire for Andy to handle this himself. I had very mixed feelings ...]]>

<![CDATA[Oliver Embraces His Inner Monster to Take Down Kovar]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Arrow/Season-5/episode-17/reviews/Oliver-Embraces-His-Inner-Monster-to-Take-Down-Kovar
In the previous episode, "Checkmate," Prometheus basically won the season by kidnapping Oliver and trapping him in his torture basement. An entire episode of Oliver being literally tortured could have been figurative torture, so fortunately, "Kapiushon" doesn't give us 40 plus minutes of Arrow misery. Instead, they give us a story that is primarily in flashbacks. It's a lot better than that might sound and in fact, "Kapiushon" might actually fix the season's flashback issues.Die Hard Russian(s)A...]]>

Designated Survivor takes a bold leap with "Backfire," an episode filled with excitement and more questions than answers when an investigative journalist shocks the White House by revealing classified information during a press briefing, leaving Seth struggling to contain the damage from the leaked story. Meanwhile, Hannah unearths a key connection between MacLeish and the conspiracy. Circles tighten as a new discovery within the conspiracy emerges. Want to know more? Your weekly recap stars now...]]>

Could a small town with only 40,000 residents be the hunting ground of two UnSubs in this Criminal Minds episode? That's what the BAU is looking to figure out when they head to Burlington, Vermont, to investigate an UnSub killing hunters during the day and a second killer invading homes at night. Also, in "In the Dark," Luke and Fiona both make steps to keep Reid safe in prison, but Reid also wants to keep fellow inmate Luis safe. Unfortunately, that's easier said than done.

<![CDATA[Kapiushon]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Arrow/Season-5/episode-17/reviews/Kapiushon
It looks like Adrian got what he wanted and broke Oliver Queen. On Arrow Season 5 Episode 17, Chase continued his crazy tactics to get Oliver to confess to being a murderer, but it took a lot of time.  It took a fake death to make him crack, and it was pretty dumb. Throwing Artemis into an apparent fight with Oliver made it seem like there was a redemption arc coming for her, but no one would ever believe she was actually a good person.  If Adrian did not give a damn abou...]]>

Oh, Margo. What did you do? The High Queen of Fillory made her toughest royal call yet on The Magicians Season 2 Episode 9 "Lesser Evils." As usual, she got the job done. But is there any chance Eliot will see things her way when he finds out she bargained away his baby? The outlook for their friendship staying strong after this falls somewhere in the slim to none category.  Even though he's freaked out by the notion of being a father, Eliot's a stand up guy.

All hail Queen Cookie Lyon of the Empire, whose return from winter hiatus was also a pleasing return to form for Fox's flagship musical drama.  I generally enjoyed Star's first season, despite it being maligned by many critics. But Empire's spring premiere was a reminder that its little sister show is just that: a little sister who has a lot to learn from her more experienced elder.  Even in its weakest moments, Empire manages to remain addictive thanks to its charismatic ...]]>

“The Weeping Somnambulist” is taking its name off a humanitarian supply ship en-route to aid in the relief effort for Ganymede Station at the beginning of this chapter. The opening of The Expanse Season 2 Episode 9  doesn’t hesitate to remind you there are large and looming questions this season. What really happened on Ganymede—during the Earth-Mars military engagement AND prior to those events? And what is happening on Venus since Eros crashed there? The tit...]]>

The will to live is strongest when there is something worth living for. There were two sides of this given to us on Underground Season 2 Episode 3  via Rosalee and Ernestine. Rosalee was fighting like hell throughout the hour to live, driven by a mother’s love for her unborn child and her quest to rescue Noah. Ernestine had all but given up and actively took a step towards death. There is a lot to unpack in this hour. It was interesting and clever writing that the t...]]>

It's hard to feel sorry for someone who killed close to 10 people. But I ended up feeling sympathetic for the unsub on Criminal Minds Season 12 Episode 17. Trey Gordon was himself a victim. First, his father neglected him to the point where he was molested as a young boy. That left him with several mental conditions with which to deal. Then the medical establishment failed him as well. He ended up with a drawer full of pills but still no peace of mind. No one would take...]]>

Halstead is married?!? I did not see that coming.  Sadly, now there is trouble in paradise for Linstead. Will they pull through?  Jay's military background has come back to haunt him more than once, and on Chicago PD Season 4 Episode 17, it brought along a not-so-ex wife.  Abby arrives to tell him that she's getting married again (except not really), and oh by the way, we're actually not divorced like you thought for the last eight years. Um... If any of you out ...]]>

With the black rain came not only physical, but emotional pain as well. Everyone had to deal with their demons while they tried to stay safe from the deadly weather, but not everyone came out happier on the other side. On The 100 Season 4 Episode 7, Clarke made it to Becca's mansion to help figure out next steps with Abby. Except things got worse when an intruder from Emori's past came barging in. Meanwhile Bellamy goes to save someone out in the woods, while Octavia and Ilian seek shel...]]>

Even if they're not fighting fires, Firehouse 51 stays cool under pressure.  When a local gang​ loosely affiliated young men with a long list of grievances took shelter at the house on Chicago Fire Season 5 Episode 16, Kelly got to practice his ninja skills, Stella was a badass, and Boden saw a kid that needed saving. This may not have been the most important episode to the overall mythology of the #OneChicago world, but damn if it wasn't exciting. It's always nice to see th...]]>

There's no place like home -- especially for Barry and Kara, who are trapped in a musical in the Supergirl/Flash crossover. After putting the whammy on Kara on her Earth, the Music Meister made his way to Barry's Earth at the end of Supergirl and does the same to the speedster at the beginning of this episode of The Flash, titled "Duet."So while their friends -- J'onn and Mon-El are the ones to bring Kara to this Earth -- can really only monitor their vitals for most of the episode and try to fi...]]>

Even though the women visit a Buddha in this episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, titled "Big Buddha Brawl," they can't seem to find any peace with each other. The feud forces some of the ladies to take sides and others to go at each other's throats -- which, if you ask me, sounds just like a Tuesday to these folks.Erika Calls Dorit on Her BS (Again)Oooooh ...

In "Raiders of the Lost Art," Legends of Tomorrow basically invented Star Wars by inspiring a young George Lucas. In this episode, titled "Fellowship of the Spear," the Legends get up close and personal with the creator of another excellent trilogy and its disappointing prequel follow-up, J.R.R. Tolkien. (Okay, Peter Jackson might actually be responsible for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings movie trilogies, but you get the idea.)Since Tolkien is a lot less of an iconic pop cultural figure th...]]>

All Barry and Kara needed was love. That's what the not-so-villainous Music Meister wanted to teach the superheroes on The Flash Season 3 Episode 17 "Duet." And obviously the only way to do that was for him to trap the speedster and girl of steel in a movie musical. The only thing at risk were their lives. Yes, it sounds silly. No, the alternate reality musical did not further the plot much for The Flash or Supergirl, aside from fixing the status of their love lives. ...]]>
