After the latest episode of “Pretty Little Liars” I have to say I am totally confused! We learned that Melissa killed Bethany Young by burying her alive. She saw Spencer walking off from her dragging the shovel, thought Spencer killed her, and burried in the open grave to protect Spencer. However she wasn’t really dead? The open grave was where Ali came from? We know Alison confirmed that Spencer did not hit her, but does that mean she came back and later hit Bethany? We know the shovel was the murder weapon. And who hit Alison with the rock? What are the chances that two women get hit in the same night and buried alive?
Emily slipped and called a photo of Alison “A”. I’m beginning to wonder if she is A, has been A all along, and she killed Bethany in a twist on the twin twist from the books.
I’m so confused! I hope we get answers in next week’s summer final. Promo and spoilers below!
“Taking This One To The Grave” – Feeling trapped by Alison and “A,” the PLLs turn to an unlikely person for help in “Taking This One To The Grave,” the mid-season finale of ABC Family’s hit original series “Pretty Little Liars,” premiering Tuesday, August 26th (8:00 – 9:00 PM ET/PT).
So this week was the summer finale of “The Fosters.” Much that happened I expected, some things I groaned over, and one thing had me dying to know more! Let’s discuss…
It wasn’t a shocker that Callie went to her birth father for help with the Girl’s United situation, though I never expected Rita to question Callie’s relationship with him and suggest that perhaps she explore it. Dang Rita, you aren’t in charge of Callie anymore, mind ya business! However it did get Callie thinking as to whether she wanted a relationship with him, and she publicly acknowledged him as her birth father whom she just found out about. That was a bad move, as later Callie’s sister revealed she took the abandonment papers out of the mailbox and ripped them up because she knew Callie would come to accept them in time. Her dad then admitted that he couldn’t re-sign them, it was hard enough the first time, he didn’t want to give her up. Yup, looks like Callie isn’t getting adopted anytime soon! I knew that was coming. At the very end she vented to Brandon, suggesting maybe this was meant to happen, that she gave up so much to be adopted . . . and then they kissed. Ugh, I knew we would eventually get back around to this story. I just do not like them together! I don’t like her with Wyatt either, but I really get creeped out thinking of her and Brandon for some reason.
Marianna and Jesus met with Anna so she could complete some of her AA steps and apologize to them, but Marianna didn’t want to hear it and told her mother off. Later she finally got rid of her horrible blond hair and returned to her roots, pun intended.
Connor’s father showed up at school furious that his son and Jude shared a tent on a school trip, because he believes Jude is gay and that’s inappropriate. There was also a question as to whether or not the father had been hitting Connor, who used a lame “I tripped and fell into something” excuse. The father did admit he still spanked his son, which Lena felt was inappropriate for a child his age. Lena got very defensive, called him a bully, and the new principal stepped in. She warned Lena she can’t use her power as VP to deal with personal issues that involve her kids. Lena then quit her job in order to defend her son. Wow! I don’t think that was a good move. Steph wasn’t supportive of the move, thinking it might not be too late for her to get her job back. Lena stood firm in her decision though. Jude overheard them talking about it and later admitted to his moms that something did happen between him and Connor on the trip. What what what! We were pretty much left hanging there. Wow, that was unexpected. I want to know more! I have a feeling Connor was the instigator of whatever happened, thinking back to when they played spin the bottle and Connor said they should kiss when Jude said this was silly.
Man I can’t wait for the show to come back to find out what happened!
Witches Of East End: Disco Inferno And The Mandragora
Posted by Dustin on 08.18.2014 at 3:12 pm
So the past two episodes of “Witches of East End” dealt with the Mandragora storyline and putting it to bed. We had a few twists and turns along the way. One of the biggest was the introduction of an old love interest of Joanna, a woman named Alex. They parted on bad terms, mainly because Alex warned Freya in a previous life that she and Killian were star-crossed lovers and never meant to be. At least it seems like she was talking about Killian, could she have been speaking of Dash? This past life took place in the 70s, so it was hilarious to see everyone in disco threads (Freya, Killian and Dash) or hippie attire (Joanna and Alex).
Joanna reached out to Alex to help them with the Mandragora problems. Wendy remained suspicious of Fredrick, who knew a lot about the beast. He didn’t know as much as Alex, who helped them all break its hold on Ingrid and destroy it once and for all. However not before it took out Ingrid’s co-worker at the library. I was so sad to see him go. He only had a bit part, but poor Ingrid just keeps losing co-workers left and right. Worse yet Fredrick was trying to heal him, so he said, but Wendy’s distrust caused her to send him away. She was worried he was killing him so he would stay quiet. Ingrid and him said a touching goodbye.
Dash continued his decent into evil, being poisoned by the beast and telling Freya way too much. The poison made him tell her off in anger, as well as say he had done horrible things she couldn’t even dream of. They cured him, and he and Freya seemingly made up. She swore she only ever kissed his brother, they never slept together. Dash helped save Ingrid from the beast, and it was clear to Freya that they were getting closer. She’s likely not going to give up on the horrible things he did comment, though she clearly has no idea that her own sister helped him cover some of them up!
Killian meanwhile had some spell put on him by his new girlfriend. I knew she was up to no good, but we still don’t know what she’s after. Possibly their family’s grimoire? They made a point to mention it in this episode as having a vast amount of knowledge, and they used it to help get rid of the Mandragora. I also wouldn’t be shocked if she worked for Joanna and Wendy’s father.
By the end of the latest episode Fredrick saved Wendy from the Mandragora, which seemed to put her doubts about him to rest. Too bad, because something is going on with him! The final shot had him writhing in pain, his eyes and the symbol of his grandfather on his chest glowing, and in an unusual voice he swore he would find another way and he would’t fail him again. So Fredrick did bring the Mandragora over and is working for his Grandfather? Or is he being controlled through magic?
So some insane stuff went down on the latest episode of “Mistresses” that changes everything. Let’s discuss!
First up, Dom got screwed and I for one am not crying. He slept with Toni on a drunken night of celebrating her new job, which as it turns out didn’t even exist. She has set him up from the beginning, reported him to HR, and knows the next time he even accidentally touches her that she can sue the firm. She told him this point blank, that she is accustomed to living a certain lifestyle and this is what she is after. I really do want to see her pay, and Dom looked like he could kill her. However I’ve always felt he was a POS, so I’m not really crying for him. He and Savi broke up, and she’s probably going to be beating herself up over choosing this jerk over Harry.
Speaking of Harry… It seems this week he began to realize he may have feelings for Joss, who has become engaged to her new boyfriend Scott. Yeah, I knew this was coming since last season. She will ruin things with Scott by sleeping with Harry, which will be around the same time that Savi will approach Harry and try and get back together. This storyline is so predictable, but I do enjoy it. Joss maybe taking over from Karen as my favorite of the girls.
Karen meanwhile has become way too involved in her latest patient Anna. Shocker! We learned Anna married an American at a very young age and he brought her to the States, then he basically turned into a rapist jerk. Their marriage ended and she’s been trying to make ends meet. She lives in a dump, and Karen of course has basically adopted her. Ohhhhh no, this will bite Karen in the butt as usual. This girl is a scammer, I can just feel it. She lies about everything to Karen, including her escort past, and I think she’s lying about her American husband honestly in order to milk Karen for what she can.
Finally April’s story just exploded this week. She found out the FBI is after her not-so-dead husband Paul. Most of her story this week was minor, her finding out the FBI had bugged her house to high hell, then it exploded at the very end. She went to the FBI to work with them, only to see Daniel there in and FBI outfit. Oh yeah, Daniel is a big fat liar! It would seem he did everything to get close to April and bug her house. The previews for next week had him saying his feelings for her weren’t a lie. The question remains, is he really married or not? Either way, April is still pissed!
There are now only two episodes left of “True Blood,” I believe. After last night’s episode, I do not have high hopes at all for a happy ending. What the hell is this show doing to itself? Let’s discuss.
Thankfully they did not drag Violet’s revenge on for long. Jason arrived and she chained him up with the others in a sick plan to make each one watch the one before them be tortured to death. However Hoyt followed Jason and shot Violet through the heart. Hoyt met Jessica and was completely enamored with her. He grilled Jason if he and Jessica were . . . Jason said no. Jason and Jessica agreed they were best as friends only. Later in the episode he showed up to pay Jessica a visit and bring Bill some clean blood. Something that struck me was Jason thanked Hoyt for saving them and called him Bubba, his nickname for Hoyt, and Hoyt said nothing about this. I am wondering if Hoyt remembers, but is lying to see if Jason and Jessica are still carrying on? Or does he truly not know? Either way, it looks like Jessica and Hoyt are going to get another chance. At least one couple is going to get a happy ending!
Eric was healed thanks to Newmie, who Gus tied up in the basement of Fangtasia. The cure was easy enough to synthesize, but Gus says that won’t make them money. He wants to make a Nu Blood that is only a partial cure, because it will keep people buying it. Eric and Pam agreed to keep quiet about the full cure, they are business people after all. However Eric soon learned from Sookie that Bill was sick and he wanted to find a way to cure Bill. Of course Sookie being Sookie took matters into her own hands. She brought Bill too Fangtasia to get the cure herself. However Bill decided at the last second that he wouldn’t be cured! He had a dream of a life with Sookie. In it Sookie was holding a baby who had a black void where its face should be. In the previews he tells Eric that all they can bring Sookie is a life of death. I swear if they end up killing Bill and screwing Sookie out of any kind of happy ending, I will be pissed. Then again that’s somewhat how Alan Ball ended “Six Feet Under,” which I absolutely hated.
Finally Tara’s story came to an end. I wasn’t too happy with this story either. Lettie Mae and Lafayette were digging up the yard of Tara and her mom’s old house looking for something. The reverend soon showed up and he agreed to take V with them, thinking he would help disprove them. He was stunned when he too saw Tara. Basically as a kid Tara almost shot her father abusive with his gun, which she stole. She didn’t though, she chickened out and buried it in the back yard. Her father left her mother that same day, which is what began her spiral into decent. Tara felt she had to show this, and the gun, to her mother to help ease her guilt. Tara couldn’t pass on until Lettie Mae let go of her and her guilt. Tara, in a way, absolved her mother of some of that. We then saw Tara go into the light. I really thought this was a piss poor end to Tara’s character honestly.
Please “True Blood,” don’t eft up the ending to your show!
So I’m still watching “Extant” and enjoying it, but much like “Falling Skies” I’m looking for answers. As we are only a few episodes in and still setting the story up, I’m not as annoyed with this show as I am with the later. So far all we know is that the Yasumoto corporation and mainly Yasumoto himself is after a cure for a disease that is killing him, and Molly’s pregnancy could be the cure. We still don’t know what happened to Molly on the space station, but whatever did seems to have followed her home. She’s now having hallucinations of her dead boyfriend here on earth! Was she simply drugged? Part of an insane medical experiment? Or is there something else going on? Yasumoto keeps talking about “them” and is making it seem like there is an alien life form of some kind. We also saw some of his scientists experimenting with some kind of slime thing, and it killed one due to exposure to it without protective gear. It has both medical healing and killing properties. I’m beginning to wonder if it’s some kind of space spore or fungus, and they exposed Molly to it.
Then there is Ethan, the little android boy, who seems to be growing into something dark and creepy. I don’t know if I’m supposed to fear him or feel bad for him. The latest episode had the government kidnap Ethan and deactivate him. Have they killed him? Are they going to reprogram him for something as part of their scheme for Molly? Yasumoto and the government also got Molly and it seems are going to take her baby out of her! Holy crap, that’s a major part of this story. Though if the “alien” is now on earth, maybe he/it can get her pregnant again?
Finally the one person Molly felt she could trust, her doctor Sam, has been pulled into this whole scheme by the government and the space program who are threatening her career and her brother.
The show is downright puzzling at times, but it is enjoyable.
So TNT has renewed “Falling Skies” for one more final season. I’m not sad about that, as this show is just awful now! I don’t know why I am watching it still, I guess because I want to actually get some answers. I usually put it off till a slow night in the week, but “Witches” wasn’t on last night, so I watched it.
The show spent the last two episodes having Lexi go into, and come out of a cocoon. Apparently the only thing physically that changed was her eyes, and I only know that as Ben said “look at her eyes.” They looked normal to me? I thought she was going to come out some half-human half-Eshvetti, but no. She did come out with these amazing powers, and promptly freed Lourdes from her suffering by killing her. First good thing to happen all season! She was done with the humans as they couldn’t learn peace, so she was going to be with the Eshvetti. This kid is straight up insane. How do those aliens understand peace? So frustrating! She went to be with her Eshvetti father, who donated his DNA to help make Lexi. Ben followed her and she some how took control of his spikes to get him to go into a ship with herm.
Meanwhile the overlord that Tom burned up earlier in the season as “The Ghost” is still alive and out for blood. He launched an all out war on Tom and the Second Mass. Pretty much half to most of the ground troops got wiped out. The rest sought shelter in an old fallout shelter and tried to convince the overlord that he blew them all up. The crazy scientist got killed in the battle, Maggie is lost somewhere, and Tom went gorilla to kill the Overlord himself and is buried under rubble. From the previews we know Tom is taken hostage and tortured, while Maggie is paralyzed. I’m guessing the only thing that will help Maggie is the Eshvetti spike technology?
The only thing I’m enjoying on this show is Pope and his new girlfriend, played by Mira Sorvino. They are fun to watch! I wouldn’t cry one tear if Lexi died, and again what I really want is answers!
There are only three episodes of “True Blood” left, and I hope they are all more exciting than last night’s episode. Let’s get into what happened!
First up, with such limited time left, I don’t understand why they are spending all this time on Bill’s past. We had to watch flashbacks of how he was put in an arranged marriage with his wife this week. So what? Where are these flashbacks going? Are they going to lead Bill to a revaluation about the cure? If not what is the point? To make us like Bill again to forget all the crappy things he’s done?
In Bill’s present, Sookie brought in the dwarf vampire doctor to help Bill. It seems there is some connection between infected fairies and the disease rapidly spreading, but she’s never seen it spread this fast. That may have something to do with her blood line. When she learned who Sookie was related to, she got the “F” out of there. We learned the fairies killed a lot of dwarves off in the past. Sookie then tried to get her fairy grandfather to heal Bill, but even his magic couldn’t do that. Or if it could he lied to her, as he doesn’t like Bill. Sookie vowed to stay by Bill’s side till the end, and predictably they got it on.
One of the funnier story lines this week was Arlene dreaming about, and falling for her vampire protector Keith. Of course she’s Hep-V positive so they can’t do anything. It’s good to see Arlene may get a happy ending though.
Hoyt finally returned to town with a new hottie girlfriend. He came home to bury his mama. He of course doesn’t remember Jason at all, but knows everyone else it seems. Jason was fixated on his girlfriend for the entire episode. Really? Jason can’t think with his head at all? He’s going to take another one of Hoyt’s girls? If he sleeps with her then I will really be pissed. I still think Hoyt will end up with Jessica in the end. Maybe then Jason will take Hoyt’s new girl?
Violet took Adeline and Wade to her house where she slept while they got it on. However when she woke, she threw Wade across the room and chained up Violet. Jessica sensed this and went running to save her, of course not telling anyone what she sensed first. It is looking by the previews that Violet wasn’t after Adeline, but Jessica to pay her back for screwing Jason.
Eric, Pam and Mr. Gus continued to track down Sarah. Eric lost control and killed her sister, but they know now that she’s the cure. Mr. Gus envisions synthesizing and bottle her blood to sell as “Nu Blood.” They tracked her down at her old church. What a dumb place to hide? Sarah started going nuts and was seeing dead and not so dead people all telling her that she was going to die that night. She saw Jason, Steve and the Guru guy. I’m not sure why the heck she’s losing her marbles. The odd thing is, since she became Newmie I kinda like her and don’t want her to die anymore.
Finally Lettie Mae and Lafayette went to their old house and began digging up the yard looking for something Tara wanted them to find. We don’t know what it is yet.
That’s about it for this episode. Again, I hope the last three are a lot better!
Once Upon A Time: Let It Go! First Official Frozen Shots!
Posted by Dustin on 07.31.2014 at 9:24 pm
So at Comic Con, “Once Upon A Time” showcased real footage from Season 4. Following the movie, Anna’s getting married, Elsa is against it, and then there is other good stuff like Regina bringing back Sydney Glass (whose show “Revolution” was canned). Of course the preview clip is pretty much as impossible to find online as the leaked “Batman Vs Superman” teaser also shown there.
However ABC has released the first official photos of Elsa (Georgina Haig) and Kristoff (Scott Michael Foster). We also know Anna will be played by Elizabeth Lail, Tyler Jacob Moore will play Prince Hans, and the incomparable John Rhys-Davies will voice Pabbie the rock troll elder.
Info : Please, resolve the addition below before post any new comment...
Dustin : It looks like it, I've suspected as much for weeks that they'd do this. Not sure if they'll keep her real killer or not from the books? I keep meaning to do my catch up blogs on it and a few others. Hopefully this weekend! Been so busy this summer.
Guest_2947 : Are they seriously going to do to the twin thing on PLL? It sure looked that way at the end of the episode this week. I've been questioning myself for the past few seasons as to why I actually still watch it. It just keeps getting more and more ridiculous.
Dustin : I cheered lol
Guest_1416 : Is it wrong that I jumped up and did a little dance when Mrs. Fortenberry died??
Beth : LOVE the addition of "Cappie" as Kristoff. I've been missing him since Greek ended.
Dustin : Night Shift has been renewed!
Dustin : Agree! Was just about to write up my thoughts on True Blah lol
Beth : I'm really not liking this final season of True Blood. First we kill Tara, then we have to deal with Lettie Mae getting screen time and her V addiction. Now Bill is supposedly Sookie's true love, Alcide and Sookie makes me sick and Eric is dying???? I don't know if I can finish it.
CGinCA : I also like Night Shift. But I fear it won't last.... given any time I really like something on NBC it disappears.
Beth : Rookie Blue 2 hr season premiere tonight!!! So excited. Please True Blood Final Season Premiere this weekend!
Dustin : Gave NBC's Night Shift a try and really liked it. Watched all the episodes last night back to back. Probably just doomed it to cancelation lol
Dustin : Yeah I was way annoyed too, and when Fitz wakes up he has to explain how he was shot lol.
Beth : I'm a little irritated with PLL. The whole Aria "I killed somebody" thing is stupid. It was self defense, she had a gun. No one would convict her. And now that they all know it's Mona, why don't they just go to Holbrook with it all?
Dustin : I was waiting for a big return but they didn't go there
Beth : LOVED the GOT finale.
Dustin : Guest: Oh I didn't even think about that! That would be good!
Guest_4721 : Am I the only one who thinks Nicholas's secret is he was the driver in the hit and run that killed the Powell's son
Dustin : I klnow, Mistresses is on Monday! Yay! Can't wait for Under The Dome to be beck too.
Beth : I am so excited for the summer shows to start. True Blood, Witches of East End, Rookie Blue. I can't wait!
Dustin : Well I like that Fred is coming back, but this Grayson story blooowwwssss
Jennifer : Anyone else upset with where Drop Dead Diva is going this season?
Dustin : WTH Drop Dead Diva! I'm getting pissed with a lot of my shows during this finales or last few weeks!
Dustin : So upset with the Grimm final! I have to write up short thoughts on lots of finales this week.
Guest_2245 : Captain Sexy!!!!!!!
Dustin : Having an issue with OUAT . . . didn't Marian die another way originally? Like of some sickness? And if Emma spared her, why wasn't she always with Robin?
Dustin : Rosemary's Baby is gunna have to wait till tomorrow via Hulu or Demand, too much on tonight as is
Guest_3189 : Ok thanks! I thought that was maybe what he said but for some reason I couldn't make it out. I am not an Owen and Christina fan so I was sad they kissed, lol.
Dustin : Oh and he asked her not to leave because he loved her and they kissed
Dustin : The chief of cardio job, he asked her to take it.
Dustin : He asked her to basically take the job she was interviewing for.
Guest_3189 : What did Owen say/ask Christina, I couldn't understand him?
Dustin : I have to watch DDD tonight lol. I'm playing catch up now. Almost done with Bates motel. Next up DDD!
Sean (The Jeep Guy : Did you recognized Charlie from Fright Night on DDD last week? I hate it when my crushes get old.
Dustin : Yup I'll try it, not sure I will like it, we will see. I'm not a fan of the movie and various copycats honestly.
CGinCA : Dustin, are you going to give the mini-series (or is it a true new tv show) Rosemary's Baby a try? From what I am seeing it looks like it might be decent.
