Jane the Virgin: Chapter 18

Jane-the-Virgin-season-1-episode-18-4

The most lasting relationship on this show: Rafael and his cell phone! Seriously people… why are you messing this up, my heart break a little each time Rafael and Jane share a screen lately, I want them all lovey-dovey again.

Ok, I’m crying here, Rafael? Really? You want a break? Heartbreaking!!!

What’s up with Andie? Seriously?! Is she totally crazy?!

Roman is in the house! Can’t wait to see his reasoning for killing his own brother.

   

Scorpion: Cliffhanger

1.21i

Wow… talk about nailing a title for an episode!

They will all make their peace, right? Cabe is not really leaving, right? Paige will go back on her word and get back to Scorpion, right???? And more importantly, Walter is ok… right?! He’s freaking ok, right?

   

iZombie: Flight of the Living Dead

zmb105a0234bjpg-7823cd_624w

First things first: oh yeah Lowell!!! They played his introduction so damn well, revealing that he’s a fellow zombie at just the right time, and so smoothly that Liv forgot to even question the basics, such as how did it happen, or how does he feed, the only thing she cares about is that he’s really cute and looking for a date! – I totally get you, girl!

Turns out there are a lot more zombies out there, and in high places… yeah, even the chief of police…. they’re everywhere.

Speaking of zombies and dates, Major takes a major kick down from a zombie, the last we see of him he’s unconscious at the skate park, bleeding all over. The next scene is Lowell asking Liv out on a date and a new corpse appearing at the morgue… my heart stopped, at this moment I thought for sure that Major was the one lying on that gurney, maybe coming back as a zombie or whatever, but no, no word yet on how he left that park, but it seems that he’s alive for now… major sigh of relief!

Have I mention that I really like Lowell?! Yeah, and It took me way too long to recognize him… shame on me! Oh Arthur, I mean, Bradley James, I really missed you on my screen!

Also… Ryan Hansen!!!

   

The Flash: All-Star Team-Up

8251e1b4eafc49f2c916ea240cbaa318

Poor Eddie, I was never so sorry about the poor man. He’s in trouble with Iris because he’s keeping secrets about Barry, at Joe’s request. So she moves in into the house where Joe lives with Barry, living Eddie all alone.

I do like the new dynamic between Eddie and Barry though, the new crime-fighting trio is amazing.

“It’s like I’m dating Barry, but in Oliver’s body”… oh man, Felicity, when are you gonna learn to keep your mouth shut?! But she’s so adorable!!!

Also, does she and Ray always have to be touching?! It creeps me out!

How is Cisco having daydreams about something that never actually happened?!

   

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Melinda

shield-melinda002

Poor Melinda… this episode really makes you feel for her. She had so much live before that incident and then it’s like it got all sucked away from her. 😦

So Skye now knows about her story, her parents, her birth, etc, and Lincoln realizes that Raina has another power… she has visions of the freaking future. Well done Raina.

Best 2 minutes of the episode are the last ones. Fitz is able to open Fury’s toolbox and communicates with Coulson and Hunter, and Hunter talks him through ditching his tailing detail… great 😀 !!!

Even if Coulson is setting up a new base for powered people, Melinda knows better than not to trust him, right? He’s the director, he’s bound to have some secrets…

   

Weird Loners: Weirded Out

WeirdLoners_1AXS05_1280x720_428053059829

Still not convinced… at all…

    

Arrow: Broken Arrow

Goodbye-600x337

I just want to kick Lance’s ass so damn much, how dare he? Destroying the foundry like that?! And the love fern?! OMG!!!

Laurel however, just keeps getting higher on my consideration.

Oliver and Ray “team up” in one of the best things ever. Oliver teaching Ray how to be a hero is priceless. The hint that Palmer and Felicity might be related?! Oh Ollie, you jealousy is showing.

Damn it Felicity! “You’re the man that I believe in”? Really? How hard would it be to say “the man I love”?!

Oh Roy… I will miss you most of all as well… I cried so much when he showed up at the foundry, even though I knew it was going to happen.

I really hate Ra’s al Ghoul right now (though I admit that I hate Lance just a tad more).

     

Supernatural: Book of the Damned

SN1018B-239b

I so want to see the Winchesters on a beach somewhere, with sand between their toes…  please, make it happen!

Charlie’s back, bitches! Oh yeah! Better than that is Charlie and Castiel being “besties”, seriously, I did not know how much I needed it before it actually happened.

Oh Sammie… Rowena?! Are you out of your damn mind?

   

Criminal Minds: A Place at the Table

Criminal-Minds-A-Place-at-the-Table-Season-10-Episode-20-02

Poor Hotchner… is it not enough that he will never be able to forgive himself about Hailey’s death, but having his father-in-law rubbing it in his face… poor guy! Still, no doubt that he’s an amazing guy.

I need more Reid with Penelope, ASAP!

    

Young & Hungry: Young & Old

4

Such a funny episode… poor Gaby just keeps messing things up.

   

The Big Bang Theory: The Communication Deterioration

The-Big-Bang-Theory-The-Communication-Deterioration-Season-8-Episode-21-07

I’m glad that Penny got out again of the whole acting gig, they should not get down that road before.

I’m also very glad that Raj and Leonard had a storyline about themselves.

Jane the Virgin: Chapter 17

JAV117a_0264b

I’m not liking this, they’re putting a pretty big edge between Jane and Rafael and I’m not comfortable with it. I hate to see them so distant 😦 …

What it is that Michael ex-girlfriend is playing at?! I get that she wants Michael back, but why the hell befriend Jane if she knows full well who she is?!

I really like Petra! Since her mother went away, I like her more each episode. What I’m not liking is the fact that she’s still very much into Rafael. But let’s all admit it, she’s pretty smart, finding out that Aaron is indeed Roman it’s pretty cool – I actually believed that she felt something for him…

Let’s give it to Rogelio, saying that he’s getting there with Xo, but she needs to get along with his mother in order for him to say “I love you”.

   

iZombie: Liv and Let Clive

izombie-02

This one is probably my least favorite episode of iZombie so far.

On the case, Liv eats the brain of a murder victim, killed by the Chinese mafia, and has visions that lead her to believe that Clive is a dirty cop. The brain also gives her mad Kung-Fu skills and a huge onset of paranoia. Turns out that obviously Clive was not dirty, but undercover, and he really did not want Liv to see that side of him… ohhhhh….

Meanwhile, Liv, worried that Major’s girlfriend is making the move to move in with him, convinces Ravi to be his roommate. Against all odds, that actually works out great, they end up having a few (gaming) things in common and I suspect that from now on Liv will spend much more time with her boss and ex-boyfriend. By the way, if I haven’t said it before, here it is, Ravi is my favorite, he’s just amazing!

Blaine, turns out, is quite the intrapeneour. He has created a few (a lot) of zombies and has a full business catering to their needs. His life style involves frequent trips to the hairstylist, manicures and tanning. Oh, what a life!

   

Forever: Best Foot Forward

BestFootForward39

The case was kind of cool this week =D, it went a totally different way than I expected and that is always refreshing.

Henry’s flashbacks to the 20’s were important, it showed what some people are willing to do for their art, even if it’s quite hard to grasp around it.

Abe works with Lucas in order to find Abigail, and tadda… Lucas finds her – obviously he doesn’t know that Abe’s mom is in fact Henry’s wife, but hey… they found her!

On that note, Abe goes to tell his dad that his mom is located right at the time that Jo was about to explain to Henry why the hell she did not want to go to Paris with her boyfriend – spoiler alert Henry, I think it has something to do with the fact that she has feelings for you… just saying!

   

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Afterlife

5863a96d379e4b5ccb371376425b71bb

Fitz-Simmons!!! Fitz-Simmons!!! I was never so happy so see a sandwich… mind you, I cried when I saw that stupid sandwich… you go Fitz-Simmons! After months of seeing them apart and not being able to communicate, it was truly wonderful to see them so in sync, even though apparently they were anything but. For a moment there I thought that Simmons’s loyalties were wavering, but then she showed that not only is she loyal to SHIELD, but she’s also very loyal to Coulson and her team. You go girl!

Meanwhile, Coulson and Hunter try to find Skye, and when they don’t find her, and after Coulson remarks that the new SHIELD are not the bad guys, they decide that they can’t stand still, they’re going to fight back. Coulson asks for reinforcements, a.k.a. Deathlok, and the three of them go on to find what HYDRA is doing with powered people, with the goal that it will lead them to Skye… it involves however to ally with someone bad, Grant Ward. I laughed so hard at Coulson’s interactions with Hunter, they’re both so hilarious. I understand the need to bring Ward back, given that he’s still a part of the show and all that, but I’m not missing him at all in this series…

Skye wakes up in the place they call Afterlife (hence the title of this episode). She meets her transitioner, Lincoln (Luke Mitchell), who heals her injuries and prepares her for training. But she’s smart and an agent after all and she knows he’s not telling her everything. She then finds that Raina is there and Skye is prepared to make her pay for everything she did, but then someone stops her, an elder. Not only a freaking elder, but Skye’s mom! You know, the one her father told us was dead?! Apparently not so!! Very much alive, how?! No idea! But she wants to be Skye’s trainer, for obvious reasons, though poor Skye has no idea.

Skye’s dad though is kept looked away, with Gordon being “the key”. Gordon is creepy, there’s something that he says that I’m pretty sure it means that Cal and Skye are not meant to be alive for much longer. Still, he has his role to play, and he takes Jiaying to see her husband (ex?!), and while she confirms that Skye is there with them, she points out tells him that he’s not going to see her. Outch! I’m starting to not like this Inhumans very much, apart from Lincoln, he seems nice and cute and hot.

    

Weird Loners: Weird Dance

weird-loners-102-08

I’m still not sure about this new show… I really hope that Stosh stops trying to stick his tong down Karen’s throat – especially if she’s eating at the time… gross!

Zara is pretty much my favorite so far.

   

Law & Order: SVU: Granting Immunity

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit - Season 16

Distribution of child pornography and anti-vaxers on the same episode… genius!

I really like the way they handled the problems and complications that arise from unvaccinated children. It’s a real problem people! And that first sequence, when we actually see the dissemination process was super well done.

Poor Nick, do all his children have to move away?! And are he and Rollins still together?!

And poor Liv, how many more times is little Noah going to go to the hospital?! They both deserve a break.

    

Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders

daniel-henney-620x374

The backdoor pilot for the new spin-off series and I loved it. Taking Criminal Minds beyond the borders sounds beyond interesting and I can´t wait to see them deal with all the diplomatic problems that it entails.

I quite liked the team, but if I had to pick my least favorite it was Anna Gunn’s Lily Lambert. I honestly don’t know why, maybe I’m just not a fan of Gunn’s acting… but the way she calmly talks, it kind of annoys me (I also had this problem while watching Gracepoint).

(How weird is it that on this episode there was a “Fitz” and a “Simmons”?!?!?!)

(A series with Daniel Henney?! Yes please!)

   

Young & Hungry: Young & Munchies

yh_5

Silly me that only this week realized that Young & Hungry was back! I had a wonderful time watching that gang again.

First of all, I really like the intro, I don’t remember ever watching it during the first season.

younghungry

Josh is funnier than ever, now that he knows his feelings for Gabby and (unfortunately) knows that she’s happy with someone else, his character gained a whole new and bigger dimension. Meanwhile, I just want to slap Gabby, sorry girl, but she should be with Josh!

   

The Big Bang Theory: The Fortification Implementation

big-bang-theory-150409

Howard’s got himself a brother! That’s pretty cool, I always love when there’s some development in the characters outside the main duo. This has potential, I can’t wait to see what they’ll do with it.

Amy and Sheldon have their first sleep over… on a blanket fort on the living room, but hey, it’s better than nothing and it will involve both of them in their pajamas, so…

Wil Wheaton is back, man, that guy is always funny. Penny and Leonard’s fight however, not so much. The initial argument, about her having a job now, I can tolerate. The second one, about her making way more money than him… bah! I see his point, man, he studied all his life, it’s not the same as Bernadette and Howard, where she makes more than him, but she has a PhD and he doesn’t. Here, Leonard has studied so much, and still Penny makes twice what he does?! He can’t believe it. And I can’t believe what he said… Poorly done!
