Broadchurch: Episode 6

This week Alec Hardy underwent surgery for his heart condition, finally, and for about a minute I actually thought he was about to bite the dust… seriously people?! Why do you do this to my heart?! And how cool is that that Tess is taking care of Hardy, with him asking her for them to be a family again and everything… poor guy! And this was the wife who cheated on him during his previous case and cost them the conviction.

Tom Miller takes the stand and downright lies, accusing Mark of confessing to murder Danny. After a while though he admits that Mark only felt guilty… But Ellie (my hero) is having none of it, she’s really mad at her son for what he’s putting the Latimer’s through and orders him to go home with her (Because she’s his bloody mother!)… “Yes mom” is all he’s able to say. Finally!!! The whole thing of Tom being angry at his mom for what his father did was getting weird and old.

The case against Joe Miller seems about to crumble when Bishop asks for the dismissal of the case based on the abuse of power of the police, because Mark Latimer went to see Joe in jail when he was first arrested… ohoh… luckily Jocelyn is able to prove that there was no abuse of power and the case still holds.

Speaking of Jocelyn, she finally came clean with her young helper about her condition, she’s going blind. To top it off, she got a call telling her that her mother fall over and passed away… by the way, are we all convinced by now that she and Maggie are or used to be an item, right?

In the Sandbrook front we learn quite a lot, mainly that Claire is looking guiltier by the minute. Not only is she wearing Pippa’s necklace in one of her portfolio photos, but it’s revealed that she was actually the one who broke into Tess’s car and stole the evidence… why?! She and Lee clearly have or had some kind of plan, but when they look for a house together with a setting very similar to the one in Sandbrook, they state that they can’t do it… do what?!

I have SO many questions!!!

I had two favorite moments: Beth finally letting Ellie console her and Ellie yelling at her son… priceless! Oh, and Abby Thompson letting Olly know that she desperately needs to have sex, it has nothing to do with him… pity that she then found something in his house that can help Joe’s case…

**********   EDIT – ALEC HARDY AND THE PENDENT  **********

As you can see in the screencap (and read on the comments below), Alec Hardy is seen wearing Pippa’s pendent.

As this is part of some sort of fantasy/nightmare he has during his anestesia, I don’t believe that he ever actually had it with him… I believe it represents something that weights on him, like the fact that he found Pippa’s body in the water, so he feels like he’s drowning. It was however very subtly done, and if there had been no comments about it, I would have missed it, so thank you :).

Jane the Virgin: Chapter 13

Poor Jane and Rafael… this week they were so excited to get some 3D photos of the baby and find out the sex, then they were totally blindsided by the possibility of something being wrong with the baby…

Jane struggled to make the right decision: do an amnio to find out and risk losing the baby, or do nothing. In the end she decided to do it, because she couldn’t not know (then she changed her mind but it was too late). Rafael continues to surprise! He stood by her side, supported all of her decisions and made sure she felt good about them. Poor guy even slept on the floor by her bed while she was on bed rest… couldn’t he sleep in the bed with her, without anything happening?! She was on bed rest after all… At the end, still not knowing the results, Jane decides she has to let go a bit, and leave some room for surprises and Rafael convinces her to not find out the sex of the baby, for it to be a surprise… oh… I’m pretty sure it’s a boy though!

Michael doesn’t take long to find out all the inconsistencies in Rose’s story and comes to the conclusion that she is, in fact, Sin Rostro!! I’m glad that didn’t take long. But by then it’s too late, Rose is long gone (and blond… what’s up with that?!).

Petra turns down Milos and then karma strikes again… Lachlan kicks her out of the hotel. No problem though, Milos just bought 33% of the hotel and is willing to let her rule, for as long as he can rule by her side. I was a bit disappointed as to how they managed the Petra/Lachlan situation… not enough drama… I thought that maybe he would leave her stranded somewhere, Spain, the desert… whatever… but not in front of the hotel.

Rogelio (finally) gets a job offer, but it would mean that he would have to move to Mexico… I don’t think he’ll do it, I do hope it will finally propel him and Xo to express their feelings. Oh, and Alba has the hots for a gentleman in physical therapy… can’t wait to see what that will lead to…

While reviewing the security camera, Nadine realizes that neither Rose, Emilio nor the Bell Boy were responsible for Zazo’s murder – remember?! The first one?! – And this opens up a new can of worms… then who did it?! As to answer our loud question, Rafael is seen talking to Zazo, but is it Roman?! Or is it his twin Aaron Zazo?! And if it is Roman, then who died impaled by ice?! Ohhhh, so many questions… please tell me that it’s the twin and that Rafael is not a bad guy… I couldn’t stand it (and neither could Jane!)!!!!
