The Handmaid's Tale: Sacrifice

Season 3, Episode 12: " Sacrifice "

The definition of sacrifice is "an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important or worthy."  The Handmaid's Tale Season 3 Episode 12 demonstrated exactly that as June stood idly by and let Eleanor become the sacrificial lamb. It was hard to watch.  There have been a lot of scenes on this show that have been hard t...

The Blood of Sanctum

The 100: The Blood of Sanctum

Season 6, Episode 13: " The Blood of Sanctum "

All things must come to an end unless it is this recent season of The 100 which didn't know how to end.  There may be plenty of explanations but it mostly comes down to a finale that was written without the intention of it also landing as a series finale if necessary.  During The 100 Season 6 Episode 13, Clarke and Madi ended up in space where they had to face off against Russ...

Burial Ground

The Disappearance: Burial Ground

Season 1, Episode 5: " Burial Grounds "

It wasn't only Stephen Price behind Anthony's abduction. Much of the how and why came together on The Disappearance Season 1 Episode 5. I'll admit I never saw the twist coming in this case. My theory was that Price and David Smith were the same people. After all, both were around the same age and were associated with St. James Orphanage. Why couldn't ...


Animal Kingdom: Julia

Season 4, Episode 11: " Julia "

My heart broke into a million pieces. And I cried. I blame Shawn Hatosy (who directed this episode) and the Animal Kingdom writers for that. But I mostly blame Leila George and Grant Harvey for bringing so much chemistry and life to their portrayals of young Smurf and Colin that I couldn't help but fall in love with the couple. Smurf and Colin should have lasted foreve...

The Revenge of Farouk

Blood & Treasure: The Revenge of Farouk

Season 1, Episode 13: " Season 1 Episode 13 "

I love it when a plan comes together. The words of A-Team leader Hannibal Smith were never more prophetic than on Blood & Treasure Season 1 Episode 13. Suddenly, the little oddities from through the season made much more sense. And we also got to enjoy some character growth, which is also a plus on summer froth such as this. Somebody was going to g...

Long Night's Journey Into Day

Gran Hotel: Long Night's Journey Into Day

Season 1, Episode 8: " Part 8 "

The past was like a dark cloud looming over the present on Grand Hotel Season 1 Episode 8.  While some characters would do anything to change their pasts, some were finally confronting it head-on. Who was able to overcome the demons haunting them, and who was paying for their past mistakes. Read our review to find out.  It has been no secret that I am Ingrid's...

Melba Toast

Claws: Melba Toast

Season 3, Episode 9: " Melba Toast "

This episode's title told viewers all they needed to know. It was evident that Melba wasn't going to survive Claws Season 3 Episode 9. What was uncertain was how she was going to die. Despite all the shit that has happened to Desna over the past three seasons, she has too good a heart to kill someone premeditatively.  That isn't to say that death has...

Married But Not In Love

Days of our Lives: Married But Not In Love

Season 54, Episode 219: " Friday August 2, 2019 "

Love, betrayal, and heartbreak are soap staples. When done well, one partner discovering the other's infidelity can be heartbreaking for everyone involved -- especially the viewers. This vicarious emotional roller coaster is what we watch soaps for. On Days of Our Lives during the week of 7-29-19, Jack's shock at Eve's ultimate betrayal of him was riveting even though their relat...

Three Killjoys And A Lady

Killjoys: Three Killjoys And A Lady

Season 5, Episode 3: " Three Killjoys and a Lady "

That was a whole lot of wasted motion. The Killjoys ended up right back where they started on Killjoys Season 5 Episode 3. The trio did return to The Lady's custody with some hard-won knowledge that enabled them to develop a plan. All this intel cost them was a much-beloved member of their crew. If there was any doubt about The Lady's mission, this ep...

Los Pecados de los Padres

Queen of the South: Los Pecados de los Padres

Season 4, Episode 9: " Los Pecados de los Padres "

Narco shows are filled with blood, guns, violence, and death but Queen of the South Season 4 Episode 9 proved that they can also be suffused with a lot of heart. And sometimes, those hearts get broken. With the threat of a witness giving testimony against her and her entire organization, Teresa had some difficult decisions to make.  She could pack up everything...


Elementary: Unfriended

Season 7, Episode 11: " Unfriended "

That was a mistake. Sherlock's campaign against Odin's God complex cost him a loved one on Elementary Season 7 Episode 11. Not just any loved one, but his father Morland. Here I was hoping that the powers that be would find a way to resurrect his brother Mycroft, however unlikely that might be. Instead they killed off Morland. I wante...

Of Several Centuries

Queen Sugar: Of Several Centuries

Season 4, Episode 7: " Of Several Centuries "

Nova was having one the best days she’s had in months on Queen Sugar Season 4 Episode 7. Many fans had been hoping for Calvin’s return. He was one of Nova’s most intense love interests, and one of the most complicated. His reemergence certainly put a smile on Nova’s face and a hopeful spark in her eyes that hasn’t been there in a long time. Nova didn't ...


Suits: Windmills

Season 9, Episode 3: " Windmills "

With Suits coming to an end, Suits Season 9 Episode 3 continued the process of preparing these characters for the endgame.  As a whole, the hour was a mixed bag. There were some really great moments and some others that felt like they were thrown in just to create unnecessary drama.  Even though she went to terrible lengths to assert her power over the others...


The Handmaid's Tale: Liars

Season 3, Episode 11: " Liars "

It's not entirely clear who the Liars are on The Handmaid's Tale Season 3 Episode 11, but there are certainly children at the center of this episode.  June's determination to save the 52 children is a very forward move for this season. June's been in quiet unrest since deciding to stay in Gilead with bursts of anger. "Liars" sees her start to propel forward, in some ways ...

Friends with Benefits

Younger: Friends with Benefits

Season 6, Episode 7: " Friends with Benefits "

Will that revelation from Charles help or hurt his relationship with Liza? On Younger Season 6 Episode 7, Liza discovered an unfinished and unpublished manuscript among the items Charles had delivered to the office after his country place got sold.
