Show Name: The Walking Dead
Time: Sunday 9pm
Episode: Not Tomorrow Yet
Thoughts: This episode was so intense. I spent the whole time just cringing, waiting for someone to die. Evidently, we are all just waiting for Glenn to meet his end. I have been trying to prepare myself for it, even though I don’t want it to happen, I can’t help but believe all the rumors.
First I will say, there was a moment where I wondered if maybe Rick’s group has become the bad guys. I mean, they are going into this place where these men are sleeping. They have done nothing to Rick’s group, unless you count the a-holes that held up Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham. Of course, Daryl took them out real fast, but I guess the guys do have that whole possibility of killing. Then, when Glenn kills his first guy and moves on to the next we see the pictures on the wall. I don’t know if those pictures were live people that this bad guy killed or if they were walkers. Either way, having those kind of pictures above your bed…comforting you as you sleep…you are definitely a bad guy.
I found it funny that so many people thought that Negan, the bad guy we have all been warned about, was the woman on the walkie. The actor who will be playing Negan has been all over the news. It was kind of an eye opener as to maybe how obsessed I am with this show.
So here is my prediction for the next episode. If you watch Talking Dead you saw the preview where one of the guys holding Maggie and Carol called Carol a bitch. I just feel like he signed his own death certificate with that comment. They don’t know how crazy Carol is and I don’t think that Rick and the other guys need to worry about the two women because Carol is about to open a can of…you get the picture
Show Name: Once Upon A Time
Time: Sunday, 8pm
Episode: Souls of the Departed
Thoughts: Okay, this was not a season premier, but more of a mid-season premier. It is episode 12 of season 5, but after the hiatus we need to discuss this and give the show its props. When we left off at the mid-season finale, Emma and all her companions were taking a trip into the underworld to find and save Killian. Of course, they have to save Killian because he became the dark one and had to be killed to save the town. And it’s all Emma’s fault. Can I blame her?
What I loved about this episode was Regina was reunited with her father. It gave her a chance to apologize for being so horrible to him. And her father is such a great character. Even though his wife and daughter have had their evil past, he never gave up on Regina. It’s so heartwarming that he was always in her corner, never believing for a second that she was the evil queen she tried to be. Regina’s mother on the other hand is just a power hungry skank that doesn’t deserve the love Regina holds for her. But it looks like Cora is in some deep trouble herself with Hades himself. I honestly cannot wait to see what happens with this story line. What is that Hades wants?
I like the direction this show is going right now. I may be a little biased though. I love any kind of twist of the classic fairytales. I think Emma and her family are in for a fight, but I sure do hope they come out with Killian in the end. But not Neal. I liked Neal, but I feel as though his story line is done and over. Sure, let him help them find Killian, but then he can move on like Regina’s father did. Please?
Show Name: Teen Wolf
Time: Tuesday 8pm
Episode: Apotheosis (Season Finale)
Thoughts: I may or may not have sat around for 5 hours, binge watching the last 5 episodes of this show. I have this bad habit of waiting to watch my favorite shows until I have almost the entire season to watch at one time because I am terribly impatient and can’t stand a cliff hanger. The biggest problem with Teen Wolf is that it was on a night when I usually had to work and when I close I often have to open the next day. Meaning I have no time to watch Teen Wolf the day it airs. So I just saved them all until this week when I binge watched it all.
So let me get into this. This whole entire season was pretty amazing. There was so much going on and Lydia almost died at least twice. The poor girl. But I feel like this season she really found who she was. She finally understands what it means to be a Banshee and she can use her abilities to her advantage instead of them using her. I know that Stiles and Malia currently have a thing going on, but who hasn’t been rooting for Stiles and Lydia since the beginning? I think it is finally going to happen. Stiles has finally won over Lydia, because he is the one who never gave up on her. He saved her when she thought she was done for. It has to happen!
Speaking of Malia, she finally faced her mother, the Desert Wolf, and killed her! It’s about time we no longer have to worry about that bad guy. Let’s face it, she wouldn’t have fought as hard if it wasn’t for Stiles. Stiles is the only normal human in this pack, and he seems to carry them all. He is the force that keeps pushing them to fight a little harder.
Kira has finally accepted that she needs the skin walkers to help her tame her wild side. I just wish it had been something with Scott that helped her control the Kitsune. Scott is the alpha, the one who saves the day. But a summer with the skin walkers sounds kind of fun. Or not…
Over all, I love the ending of this season. It was a fantastic season. I was starting to get a little bored with the show, but this season has brought me back to the fandom. Scott’s pack has defeated the Beast, after they realized it would take all of them to beat it. He has his pack whole and complete again, with at least one added person in the mix. Theo has been taken down to who knows where. Deucalion was actually there to help the whole time. Mason is okay. Everyone is a hero, and even Allison was able to help from beyond the grave. A perfect ending to a great season. My favorite part is that no one died!
And then at the end, they leave us wondering what is going to happen, because you know these teens can never get much of a break.
My question though, how many more seasons will we get of Teen Wolf? They are all talking about going to college, and soon, our Teen Wolf will no longer be a teen. What happens then? Should we be preparing ourselves for this show to come to an end, or will it follow Scott into his young adulthood until the show no longer catches the public interest anymore?
