What Happened to Cole Lockhart?

The Affair: What Happened to Cole Lockhart?

Season 5, Episode 4: " Episode 4 "

With Joshua Jackson's exit ahead of The Affair Season 5, it was inevitable that his character would not get a satisfying conclusion.  The Affair Season 5 Episode 4 pulled back the curtain to reveal that Joanie's narrative is taking place sometime after 2050 and that Cole is dead.  Joanie is struggling to exist in a world without her parents, and that's very evident based off t...

Today and Tomorrow

Fear The Walking Dead: Today and Tomorrow

Season 5, Episode 14: " Today and Tomorrow "

That was a drag.  Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 14 pushed the plot forward but didn't offer much in the way of significant revelations.  Every single time the action started to pick up, it slowed back down again proving to be yet another frustrating installment.  The insight into Paradise was needed. This is a base that can prove to be safe for all ...


Succession: Argestes

Season 2, Episode 6: " Argestes "

Another outlet suggested that Succession Season 2 Episode 6 offered so many quotes that it could run a special article featuring them. From my perspective, "Argestes" was light on humor and leaned heavily into dramatic territory. The timing of an event like the one at Argestes in the middle of the bid on Pierce was iffy enough. Adding the potential disastrous expose on Cruises ...

Breaking Hearts and Playing Parts

Chesapeake Shores: Breaking Hearts and Playing Parts

Season 4, Episode 4: " Breaking Hearts and Playing Parts "

If only Trace and Abby had decided to move foward, Chesapeake Shores Season 4 Episode 4 could have been titled "Righting the Ship." It sure seemed like everyone was going to great lengths to position themselves better for the future, and in doing so, relationships were steadied or ended. It doesn't hurt that there was an actual ship that served three generations of O'Briens, ei...

Why Is Tommy Still Alive?

Power: Why Is Tommy Still Alive?

Season 6, Episode 4: " Why Is Tommy Still Alive? "

Angela Valdes was back in a big way this week.  Now Power hasn't completely jumped the shark and brought Angela back from the dead, but Power Season 6 Episode 4 saw Ghost's vision of Angela, clad in that red dress and everything.  Confronted with a questioning voice, Ghost had to do some searching inside himself to figure out what kind of man he wanted to be.  ...

Another Solid True Crime Series for Netflix

Unbelievable: Another Solid True Crime Series for Netflix

Season 1, Episode 8: " Episode 8 "

Netflix is well-known for its expansive slate of original series, but its roster of true-crime series are starting to emerge as the highest quality series on the streamer.  The latest effort is Unbelievable, an eight-part limited series that follows a young girl named Marie (Booksmart's Kaitlyn Dever) who is charged with lying about being raped, and the plight of two female detectives task...

Terraformance Anxiety

Killjoys: Terraformance Anxiety

Season 5, Episode 9: " Terraformance Anxiety "

That's how to set up a series finale. All the resistance members but one were brought back together on Killjoys Season 5 Episode 9. That one, Jaq, may turn out to be the most important piece in the final battle against The Lady. The big happening in this penultimate episode was the reunion of the Killjoys and Aneela and Delle Sayeh Kendry, whose presence would s...


Outsiders: Rose

Season 2, Episode 2: " Shadowside "

That's more like it! Titans Season 2 Episode 2 was a marked improvement over the hastily cobbled together Titans Season 2 Episode 1.  There was just the right amount of action, character development, and humor. It felt like a major return to form for the series.  The three-month time jump is likely to thank for that because it successfully gave some of the cha...

Prisoner's Dilemma

Suits: Prisoner's Dilemma

Season 9, Episode 8: " Prisoner's Dilemma "

Life can turn on a dime.  Suits Season 9 Episode 8 found Harvey battling several people to keep himself out of jail but little did he know that there was no good ending for him.  Lily's death was painful to hear about, primarily because of the progress Harvey had made with his mother of late. He's going to spiral out of control. There's no getting away from th...

The Rival

Pearson: The Rival

Season 1, Episode 9: " The Rival "

Can we fling that angry, horny man Pearson calls a mayor in the sun? Can he take Angela with him?  Interestingly enough, Pearson Season 1 Episode 9 set Bobby and Angela against one another. It was an inevitability. What's funny is that both of them make it difficult to determine whose side you're on. It's a wonder Jessica hasn't lost her marbles dealing with both of them as th...

A Perfect Storm

Gran Hotel: A Perfect Storm

Season 1, Episode 13: " Part 13 "

That's one way to go out with a bang.  The great mystery of Sky Garibaldi's dissapearance was solved on Grand Hotel Season 1 Episode 13, but when one mystery is solved, another one rises from it's ashes. Who is responsible for Sky's death and whose life hangs in the balance? Read our review to find out.   They say that there is no rest for the wicked, but aft...

Tern Haven

Succession: Tern Haven

Season 2, Episode 5: " Tern Haven "

With great power comes great responsibility, and that's not something Logan Roy intends to had off to his kids anytime soon. Succession Season 2 Episode 5 found the Roys hunkered down with their arch rivals on the opposition's home terf, and it didn't take long for the stress to get the better of everyone. And just as fast as Shiv announced herself as the successor to Waystar Ro...

Leave What You Don't

Fear The Walking Dead: Leave What You Don't

Season 5, Episode 13: " Leave What You Don't "

Maybe there's life in this old dog yet.  Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 13 said goodbye to Logan and introduced a brand new band of villains who can only be described as the Saviors on wheels.  Even though Logan was a horrible villain, there was a total of zero character development for him aside from this installment, and that's a little frustrating.  ...

Do All Roads Lead to Montauk?

The Affair: Do All Roads Lead to Montauk?

Season 5, Episode 3: " Episode 3 "

If you hate Noah, then there's a good chance The Affair Season 5 Episode 3 was right up your alley.  It's almost like we're supposed to feel sorry for him during The Affair Season 5. Are we to care that he's being redeemed?  It sure seems that way! Bringing the two distinctly different versions of events back was the best foot forward. The Affair works best w...

A Sonnet for Caroline

Chesapeake Shores: A Sonnet for Caroline

Season 4, Episode 3: " A Sonnet for Caroline "

Let's talk about love! Chesapeake Shores Season 4 Episode 3 pushed aside most of the business woes that were on tap for Chesapeake Shores Season 4 Episode 2. Unfortunately, all the couples didn't make it out of the hour intact, but this review will try to help mend broken hearts. Before we get to the romantic notions afoot on "A Sonnet for Caroline," let's get b...
