And Dream of Sheep

Grey's Anatomy: And Dream of Sheep

Season 15, Episode 17: " And Dream of Sheep "

It's the season of love, but it has also been the season of family.  It goes to show you love comes in various forms. We can debate all day about the 'ships sailing, but the familial aspect of this season is interesting as well.  Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 17 had the (possible) departures of Vincenzo and Helen, Maggie stepping into a part of her identity, the complex Tow...

When in Rome

Whiskey Cavalier: When in Rome

Season 1, Episode 3: " When in Rome "

The family was at risk of falling apart before it ever had the chance to come together.   The team hit multiple rough spots on Whiskey Cavalier Season 1 Episode 3, and it wasn't Frankie and Will alone who were experiencing them. Between personalities clashing and constant bickering, no one was exempt. The fact of the matter is families fight no matter what, so it all fell in l...

My Fault Is Past

Empire: My Fault Is Past

Season 5, Episode 10: " My Fault Is Past "

With all the drama going on with Empire off-screen, you could be forgiven for forgetting what the heck was going on when Empire Season 5 went on its midseason hiatus in December.  Picking up right where we left off, Empire Season 5 Episode 10 threw us straight into the deep end. Jeff Kingsley told the world about his status as the illegitimate child of Lucious Lyon.  ...

The Waiting Room

This Is Us: The Waiting Room

Season 3, Episode 15: " The Waiting Room "

Hospital waiting rooms; they seem like a perfect place to hash out all the family drama you thought you put to rest, right?  Most people would know the answer should be a big fat NO!

Instead of coming together in solidarity to support their sister, tensions mounted between those in the waiting room and fights erupted.  After watching an...

Bears and Cubs

NCIS: Bears and Cubs

Season 16, Episode 16: " Bears and Cubs "

It was either the worst luck or the best luck that fell upon Palmer on the most embarrassing moment of his career. That moment was the return of Ducky, offering inside headquarters not one but three men Palmer admired on NCIS Season 16 Episode 16.

Failure is an Orphan

The Flash: Failure is an Orphan

Season 5, Episode 16: " Failure is an Orphan "

That was anticlimactic. The hype was strong over The Flash Season 5 Episode 16, and promotional media had promised us one of the best episodes of the season, with a shocking twist ending. Instead, what we got was two-thirds of a filler episode, finished off with a reveal I’m fairly sure almost all Flash fans saw coming. It always hurts to be critical of The Fla...

Davia on her own is an acquired taste, but Davia's birthday parties are pretty damn epic!  The events of her re-birthday bash on Good Trouble Season 1 Episode 10, were an absolute blast, and it was another of those times when you wished you could hang out with The Coterie gang.  Yes, they have a crazy amount of drama, but there is also a lot of love and fun.

Training Day

Arrow: Training Day

Season 7, Episode 15: " Training Day "

The future may not be too bright in Star City, but it's a hell of a lot more interesting than what's going down in the present.  Ever since Oliver got released from Slabside, Arrow hasn't been able to find its footing in the present timeline. While there have been some exciting prospects drizzled throughout the second half of Arrow Season 7, many plotlines have fell flat.  That...

Shadowhunters: Beati Bellicosi

Season 3, Episode 13: " Beati Bellicosi "
