Bones 10×20 ‘The Woman in the Whirlpool’: Tough love

This has to be the longest streak of consecutive “Previously Ons” in ten seasons of Bones, which means the show isn’t shying away from the consequences of Booth’s relapse. However, it also makes for some incredibly difficult television to watch, because we are so unused to seeing Booth and Brennan at such odds, with no end in sight. Tonight’s offering does nothing to alleviate that, but could there be a light at the end of the tunnel?

Scandal 4×21 ‘A Few Good Women’: Foxtail is secure

YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH. Sorry I had to do it.

Although this episode seems a bit slow it was the perfect pace to set up the final cliffhanger. It gave us a few questions to ponder before the hopeful last showdown between Popes in Scandal’s season finale. VP Susan Ross continues to bud heads with Fitz when she brings Olivia Pope in to defend a rape case in the Navy. Meanwhile, Huck and Quinn attempt to get Foxtail out of Russell and Mellie revisits a traumatic place. Let’s get to it, onto “A Few Good Women.”

Penny Dreadful 2×04 ‘Evil Spirits in Heavenly Places’: Memoirs of the devil

Juxtaposed with last week’s episode, ‘Evil Spirits in Heavenly Places’ is positively lighthearted, especially by Penny Dreadful standards. It only serves to show that this show can do it all – frightening, heartbreaking and even humorous. A change of pace is more than welcome.

POI 4x21.1

Person of Interest 4×21 ‘Asylum’: You are not interchangeable

The slow build up to this season’s finale sped up in this week’s Person of Interest when both storylines came out in full force. This episode has no real POI, but instead brings us back into both main conflicts of this season. While Elias and Dominic are fighting for title of King of New York, Root and Finch follow a lead to the possible whereabouts of Shaw. This episode is action-packed from start to finish, let’s jump into “Asylum.”

Louie 5x07

Louie 5×07 ‘On the Road: Part 1′: The thrill of adventure

Many of us spent the majority of our earlier years in only a couple different locations.  Even those that are relocated across the country or those that change school districts year after year don’t see a whole lot of the world.  So when we look at the world, we look at possibility, the idea of being capable of more or being able to experience more.  Traveling to new places is exciting because we feel like we’ve experienced more life, like our existence means more than it did otherwise.  But what happens with those who spend so much time traveling, with those who have been all over the country and have been to so many places, being on the road doesn’t feel like an adventure.  It becomes monotony, daily life, a routine that we abide by to stay alive and make money but also one that enslaves us.

Scandal 4×20 ‘First Lady Sings the Blues’: Is Jake alive?

This will be a short introduction because we need to get right into the cliffhanger from last week: Is Jake alive? Regardless the remaining members of Team Takedown have to go underground because Rowan’s gun is loaded and firing at anything that moves. Meanwhile Mellie’s campaign hits a snag when Sally Langston turns the nation against her and Olivia helps out a legendary KGB agent turned housewife. Let’s get to it, onto “First Lady Sings the Blues.”

Stalker 1×20 ‘Love Kills’ : Curse you, cliffhangers!

Beth’s last words in the finale were “I don’t know where this is going, but I’d like it to continue.” Sorry Beth, we can’t always get what we want. Even if the show did leave us with a permanent cliffhanger that some of us would’ve liked to see resolved.

Mad Men 7x14

Mad Men 7×14 ‘Person to Person’: Something new

A silhouetted man stares at his office, a life that he’s created for himself, but an empty one.  He sets down his briefcase, watches that life fall apart, slowly sliding to the ground.  He jumps (or falls) off of the building, soaring in free fall, flanked by advertisements on buildings, delusions, promises of ways to take away the pain.  It appears to be the death of a man, save for one final image that everyone forgets when they see the opening credits.  It ends with that same man, sitting, staring off into the unknown.

Penny Dreadful 2×03 ‘The Nightcomers’: I will meet them on my feet

Back in the season premiere, Vanessa asked Sembene if the past can return. He replied that instead of returning, it never leaves us. ‘It is who we are.’ What, then, can we make of Vanessa when we find out more about her past in this flashback episode? Read more »

The Blacklist 2×22 ‘Masha Rostova’: I remember everything

Best episode ever, am I right? We got intense moments. We got major reveals. We got a sex scene. What more could we ask for? (Well, we could ask for more answers on Liz’s mom, but I am confident that we will get some this fall.)

Louie 5×06 ‘Sleepover’: Slowly learning

This season of Louie has commented again and again on how people don’t really understand the way that millenials live in the world, and, more than that, they’re afraid of what millenials and their knowledge means for themselves.  Every generation experiences the world differently, and the older generations look at the younger and demonize the way they experience the world, not because they legitimately think the youth are wrong, but because they need to justify their own relevance.  Because, as we get older, we lose our relevance in society, and the young continue to gain more relevance.

Bones 10×19 ‘Murder in the Middle East’: Iranian Roulette

Murder! Generic foreign accents! Obviously-Southern-Californian-Locations doubling as the Middle East! No, it’s not NCIS: it is in fact this week’s episode of Bones. As if Arastoo getting embroiled in a murder investigation in Iran isn’t crazy enough, Brennan finally finds out about Booth’s secret, and I think we collectively need a drink right now.

American Crime 1×11 ‘Episode Eleven’ : The butler did it

So, the season’s finally over, after a lot, and I do mean a lot, of misery. Was it satisfying? Did it provide closure? Was it worth the anti-depressants some viewers probably had to take just to get through each episode? The answer is…sort of?

Chicago PD 2×22 ‘Push the Pain Away’ Or Drown it in Whiskey

Erin has gone to the dark side. Just what Voight was afraid of. As a means to ‘push the pain away’ Erin has turned to alcohol to try and cope with the pain she feels at the lose of Nadia and the guilt she feels at what she thinks is her part in it. It couldn’t have come at a worse time either, because some baddies are shooting up the city and Erin’s got her head shoved in a trash can puking up last night’s whiskey. Read more »

The Middle 6×24 ‘The Graduate’ : A proper send-off

Several things come to a close in this episode. The infamous Year of Sue, Sue’s high school career as a whole, and the show’s sixth season. I’ve been expecting the usual quirky hijinks for weeks now. What I didn’t anticipate? Being so genuinely touched by the proceedings.

The Goldbergs 2×24 ‘Goldbergs Feel Hard’: The L-word

The three words that we only say when we really, really mean it were the focus of The Goldbergs’ second season finale. Barry was mad he did, Adam was scared of it, and Murray didn’t see the point until the phrase escaped his lips and were met with a lackluster response. While the men of the family were dealing with their emotions, I was crying my eyes out. Hey Modern Family, you’re no longer the best show on Wednesday night…just saying…

NCIS 12×24 ‘Neverland’: Did that really just happen?

It’s season finale time, friends. This twelfth season has been a roller-coaster ride, up and down and everything in between. Assumed to be the last episode of an intense three parter, NCIS has always been good at two, three, and four part episodes. With that being said, these continuous episodes tend be sad and have upsetting character deaths. And this episode, while not being completely finite, takes a leap in terms of a potential character death. And if true…we fans will be upset forever.

Castle 7×23 ‘Hollander’s Woods’: Finally! A nice finale!

Remember when I was so upset at the beginning of the season? Yeah, it was because of the finale last year that didn’t let our favorite crime fighting couple get married, but decided to go full soap opera on us instead. While all of the drama and thrills were still intact for this one, it had to be one of the nicest endings this show ever had. And that is thanks to it not being an awful cliffhanger.
