Scorpion: Young Hearts Spark Fire
While trying to rescue a group of hikers from a mountain, team Scorpion’s helicopter crashes, eventually causing a wildfire. While Sylvester stays behind with the pilot, the rest of the team goes and tries to find the hikers.
My favorite bits of this episode involved Toby. First, Toby diagram with the explanation on why he knows that Walter is in love Paige, to which Walter denies (though not very convincingly). Then there’s all those wonderful interactions between Toby and Happy… after their kiss last week, he’s acting all protective of her (though she thinks it’s annoying) and ends up telling her that he’s in love with her. I was so glad that she did not run!!!!
The Flash: Rogue Time
After the all the distress that was last week, when Barry finds himself on the day before, he decides to change a few things up and arrest the Weather Wizard before he’s able to do any real damage. Dr. Wells warns him of the consequences, but really how could this day be any worse than the previous one?!
Well, Captain Cold and Heat Wave return (with Cold’s sister), they kidnap Cisco and his brother and force him to disclose the Flash’s true identity. Meanwhile Barry, so sure now of Iris feelings, decides to make a HUGE move on her, only to be punched by Eddie – sorry dude, but you totally deserved that!
In the end Barry has a talk with Cold, where he considers that he doesn’t have to kill people to get what he wants and then he decides to relocate… all very civil! I get why they did this, they’re clearly paving the way for the new show, but although I can comprehend that Cold doesn’t really have to hurt people, he really likes to be in control, I don’t see Heatwave playing by the same rules… so it will be definitely fun to watch how that plays out.
There was a nice parallel between Cisco and Well’s talk this week and the last. In both Well’s told Cisco that he saw him as a son and was proud of him, but this week he did not kill him!!! Hurray for that! He does kill someone though, Iris’s boss, which leads Barry to suspect that something is up with Wells. Well done Barry, it only took you 16 episodes!!!!
By the way, the time in which Cisco can build 3 extremely different guns out of someone’s house – not a lab – is amazing… more over if you consider that one of those guns fires gold (?!).
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Love in the Time of Hydra
Remember when we were all worrying about Mac when he was stuck in the city?! Oh, well, not I’m wishing he had died right away, maybe that way we could have kept Tripp. The “Real SHIELD” unveiled itself this week to Hunter, they say that stand for truth and honesty and transparency, Coulson, like Fury, keeps way too many secrets and that’s not how SHIELD should run.
Hunter (luckily) is having none of it – I always liked Hunter, but now I love him, and I can’t believe how Mac and Morse are acting… though I still have a slight hope that Morse is indeed a double agent and that she will side with Coulson in the end. Hunter managed to escape this new SHIELD, though he’s unable to contact Coulson.
After May and Coulson talk, he decides to bring Skye to a secure and secret location, where she can be safe and work on her powers… she feels like she’s in prison, but really, amazing timing. Simmons delivers Coulson a new pair of gloves for Skye, that will minimize the effects of her powers, but she’s feeling conflicted about it. Fitz, for his hand, thinks that there’s nothing wrong with Skye, or him for that matter, the real one on the wrong there is Simmons, she has given up to her fears and insecurities and is too much changed. He’s so on the nose with this one, Simmons IS changed for the worst and her new behavior unfortunately falls right in line with the new SHIELD.
The Ward and Agent 33 storyline was just plain weird… I liked that it involved Talbot, but that was it… I found it utterly dispensable.
Arrow: Suicidal Tendencies
Now I’m officially not getting Felicity, I mean, she’s right with all that “I want someone who’s not afraid to be happy”, but after Ray doubted her in that way, I was a little disappointed that she did not give him any crap – she has no trouble doing so with Oliver, so why was she so ready to be all lovey dovey with Ray?!
They better start fixing it!
I get that Captain Lance is hurt with his daughter and everything, he has the right to be, but he’s going a bit off the rails…
And Maseo?! WTF?! Now you’re imitating the Arrow too?! I’m so disappointed, I like(d) him so much.
I will miss Deadshot!
Diggle and Lila’s wedding was wonderful, but I wish we could have seen a bit more of it… maybe Oliver’s best man speech?! Felicity catching the bouquet and glancing at Ollie?!
Law & Order: SVU: Parole Violations
This week the episode dealt with the abuse and power that Parole Officers have upon the parolees, it finally introduced some background and family for Carisi and dealt with the fact that men can be raped by women.
I don’t think they had ever gone there in 17 years, and I’m so glad they finally did. Rape in itself is a taboo, but somehow, when it’s the fact that men can in fact be raped by women, there’s more than a taboo, there’s a huge disbelief. Not so long ago I was having a talk with my mother (highly intelligent and liberal woman) and we were talking about rape and for some reason I brought up this particular subject (men being raped by women) and she (intelligent, worldly woman) said that she did not think it was possible for such a thing to happen… So I’m glad that they finally took on a case that not only shows that it happens, it can happen, and unfortunately how unlikely it is to be acknowledge.
Supernatural: Paint it Black
How can they still put a new spin on old ghost stories still amazes me. Dean, confession, church and nuns?! Funny as usual.
Criminal Minds: Rock Creek Park
The case this week was a bit f* up, even though it wasn’t at all creepy or weird or deadly. But the fact that those 2 people had such a twisted view of things… wow…
But there’s only one thing that matters in this episode (besides the fact that Kate is already showing), was that little bit in the end… REID GOT A DATE!!!! I’m so happy for him!!!
