I can’t believe premiere weeks are finally here. Fox and CBS are first out of the gate this week, with ABC also premiering some of their new and returning shows too. NBC has “The Voice” starting.
I HATE adding new shows to the blog, mainly as they always end up canceled. I am looking forward to “Gotham” on Fox though, and “Forever” on ABC, both which premiere Monday night.
However “Sleepy Hollow” is also back, and the spoilers for the Season 2 Premiere are below!
WAR HAS BEEN HERE ALL ALONG… ON THE SEASON TWO PREMIERE OF “SLEEPY HOLLOW” MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, ON FOX
Picking up immediately after the spellbinding events of the Season One finale, Ichabod finds himself buried alive in a coffin; Abbie is trapped in purgatory; Ichabod’s wife, Katrina, has been kidnapped by the Headless Horseman; Capt. Frank Irving is behind bars for a murder he did not commit; and Abbie’s sister, Jenny, is among the wreckage of a horrific car crash. These events were due, in large part, to the shocking revelation that Henry Parish, the trusted friend of Ichabod and Abbie, is actually Ichabod and Katrina’s son and the Second Horseman of the Apocalypse. Now, with Henry’s emergence as the Horseman of War, alongside the Headless Horseman, Sleepy Hollow has never been so close to destruction in the all-new “This Is War” Season Premiere episode of SLEEPY HOLLOW airing Monday, Sept. 22 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (SLH-201) (TV-14 L, V)
ICHABOD AND ABBIE TRY TO GET A “HEAD” OF THE COMPETITION ON AN ALL-NEW “SLEEPY HOLLOW” MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, ON FOX
Ichabod Crane and Lt. Abbie Mills concoct a daring plan to try to rescue Ichabod’s wife, Katrina, from the Headless Horseman by resurrecting a Frankenstein-like monster created by Benjamin Franklin. Meanwhile, Frank Irving faces new trouble after revealing the true details of his encounter with a demon, and Jenny Mills finds herself at odds with the new sheriff in town in the all-new “The Kindred” episode of SLEEPY HOLLOW airing Monday, Sept. 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (SLH-202) (TV-14; L, V)
There are only two episodes left this season for “Under The Dome.” It seems as of late the dome is throwing all sorts of disasters at the town. Last week was an arctic blast, this week it seems the dome is shrinking. I hope Julia is no over that theory of hers that the dome is there to protect them. I think the dome is pissed that they lost the egg.
As I suspected it appears Melanie is Barbie’s older sister, well now younger sister. However her life is in peril as the testing the men on the outside are doing on the egg are killing her. I’m now torn. I have come to like Melanie, but still want Angie back. I do still think if she or another hand dies that Angie will return.
I can’t believe the show did such a 180 with Rebecca’s character that I actually like her now and don’t want to see anything bad happen to her. I’m still waiting for Big Jim to get his, but I’m sure that won’t happen until the actual final episode. The show needs a villain after all.
Last week I kept wondering why Barbie didn’t risk it and try and carry Julia to the diner the entire time. Clearly they made it in the end, so why waste all that time in the ambulance?
I never did read the book, which I bought last year, so I’m still actually clueless on the egg and what the heck it actually is. I guess I’m still going with aliens, though perhaps it has something to do with creation? It causes plagues, natural disasters and brings the dead back. Hmmmmm, yeah I’m going with creation. It is an egg after all.
Spoilers for the final two episodes of the season below!
A lot has been going on with the witches since I last posted. This post is just my thoughts on the stories, with spoilers for the next few episodes at the end.
So it’s getting harder and harder to keep liking Fredrick, given what he’s been up to. We’ve learned that the king’s spirit is inside of him, and he’s trying to basically give him a new body to take over. That’s what all the ritual killings were about, along with the Mandragora. Freddy didn’t like killing people to try and find a vessel for grandpa, so he had the Mandragora doing it. I suspected earlier that he may be possessed by grandpa, but this is more of a Harry Potter like Quirrel twist they have going on. I believe they even mentioned the king being sick and crazy at one point. Perhaps he actually died? If so this really is just like Harry Potter. Interestingly in the latest episode it seems he killed his girlfriend to give grandpa a new body. Looks like grandpa will now be grandma? I hope they find a way to make me like Fredrick again.
Wendy was forced to give up her boyfriend Tommy when he saw her shift. Joanna wanted her to erase his memory and never see him again, for their protection as much as his. If other witches found out about him, they’d kill him to protect themselves. However she couldn’t do it. Tommy is trying to be okay with her, and I really hope things work out for them. They are super cute together.
We found out that Killian’s wife has spelled him to get a baby out of him. It is unclear why she needs this. We know she seems to be forever young, as her grandmother who lives with them is actually her daughter. Do kids keep her young, or something else? I’m thinking she’s immortal, but her daughter is not, and they are trying to do a soul transfer. She unfortunately is keeping him under her spell, though he keeps breaking out of it. Poor Freya thought they finally had a chance to be together, until he returned to Ava!
Finally Ingrid and Dash got together, but she soon learned all the bad things he’s been up to and walked out on him. Uh oh! Looks like Ingrid could be in danger again from obsessive-Dash.
A SCARED AND CONFUSED ELSA FROM ARENDELLE FINDS HERSELF IN STORYBROOKE AND CREATES A POWERFUL SNOW MONSTER FOR PROTECTION, REGINA WONDERS IF HER RELATIONSHIP WITH ROBIN HOOD HAS BEEN COMPLETELY QUASHED NOW THAT MARIAN’S BACK IN THE PICTURE, AND IN ARENDELLE OF THE PAST, ELSA’S SISTER ANNA WANTS TO COMPLETE THEIR PARENT’S FATEFUL JOURNEY AND DISCOVER IF THEIR QUEST MAY HAVE HELD THE SECRET TO CONTAINING ELSA’S OUT OF CONTROL ICE POWERS, ON THE SEASON PREMIERE OF ABC’S “ONCE UPON A TIME”
John Rhys-Davies (“The Lord of the Rings,” “Raiders of the Lost Ark”) Voices the Grand Pabbie
Giancarlo Esposito Guest Stars as Sidney/Magic Mirror
Master storytellers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (“Lost,” “Tron: Legacy”) invite everyone to join Emma Swan, Snow White, Prince Charming, The Evil Queen, Hook and all the other resident fairytale characters as they prepare to defend themselves against a magical force from the past that’s too unpredictable even for Rumplestiltskin – Elsa, the Ice Queen from Arendelle. And now that Emma has brought back Robin Hood’s wife, Marian, and possibly sparked the end of Regina’s relationship with him, will Regina return to her old, evil ways and do everything in her power to get even? And newlyweds Belle and Rumplestiltskin continue to be deeply in love with each other. But Rumple is hiding a secret from Belle — one that, if found out, could destroy their happiness – he continues to be the master of the dagger that calls upon him to be the Dark One. Can Emma and Hook commit to one another, and can these two damaged people take their love to the next level? Mary Margaret and David have a new baby, Prince Neal, and are looking forward to raising him into a proud, brave and loving adult. But they are still sad that they were not able to do this with Emma, instead helping her escape the curse when she was first born and not meeting her again until she was 28 years old. Henry is very happy to have both of his mothers back in Storybrooke. But with biological mom Emma and paternal grandfather Rumplestiltskin’s blood running through his veins, he will be tested by both the light and the darkness. Finally, Will Scarlet (Michael Socha, “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland”), a former member of Robin Hood’s band of Merry Men, has traveled across many lands to make his way to Storybrooke. He finds himself intertwined in the goings-on in town for the first time as his mysterious past pushes him to an unknown future.
In the season premiere episode, “A Tale of Two Sisters,” a scared and confused Elsa finds herself in Storybrooke and, fearful of the intentions of its residents, creates a powerful snow monster for protection. With Robin Hood’s wife, Marian, back in the picture, Regina wonders if her “happily ever after” with the former thief has been completely quashed; while on their honeymoon, Mr. Gold finds an intriguing object that makes him question whether or not he should officially give Belle control over the dagger that makes him The Dark One, and Hook is dismayed to discover that Emma seems to be avoiding him while she tries to help comfort Regina after being the one responsible for bringing Marian back from the past and into Storybrooke. Meanwhile, in Arendelle of the past, as Elsa’s sister Anna’s wedding to Kristoff nears, Anna discovers that their parents – who died on-ship during a violent storm – were heading to a mysterious destination in a quest that may have held the secret to containing Elsa’s out of control Ice powers. And against Elsa’s wishes, Anna wants to finish their journey to find out what they were looking for, on “Once Upon a Time,” SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

So it’s been a few days since the “Mistresses” season 2 finale. I’ve thought a lot about it, and just now had the time to write about it. Before my thoughts, there is still no word on Season 3. From interviews with the show-runners, we should have an answer one way or another by the end of September. I really hope we aren’t left with the questions left by this finale. Come on season 3!
First up, I’ve been calling the Joss-Savi-Harry triangle since last season, so I’m glad to see it finally come to fruition. However I don’t know who I’m routing for. I was on Joss’s side because of how stupid Savi was, but we saw a different side of Savi this season. I just don’t know if it’s too little too late for her. I also really liked Joss with Scott, and she has a tendency to blow good things, and he was a good thing. Harry doesn’t even know Savi wants him back, so we don’t even know if he’d consider it either.
It’s horrible to say, buy I really hope to God that Paul is dead for real this time. That storyline needed to end. I felt bad for April’s little girl learning the truth from the news though. Clearly we know what, or who, will stand in the way of her and Daniel if there is a season 3!
Finally Karen learned she wasn’t HIV positive, but there was another bit of news we didn’t hear. First and foremost, they don’t release that info over the phone, period. Second, as a doctor she also should know there is a 6 month window and could still have it, it’s just not registering. If they are going to do an HIV storyline, they should do it right and give people the info. What the other news is though? I’m guessing she’s pregnant, and will spend season 3 tracking down all her one night stands! It would be nice if it was Jacob’s though.
So I’m trying to use Labor Day weekend to finally get caught up on some blog posts on my Summer shows, all which are winding down. I thought no TV would be on, but I was wrong! Shows are airing Sunday and Monday.
First up is “Under The Dome.” Man a lot has been going on with this show! Before we get into it all, a week or so back I met Colin Ford, who plays Joe, at the local horror con. He wouldn’t tell me if anyone else major died. He did say a lot of crazy shiznet would happen as the end of the season approached, and several new characters would be introduced. I think he was speaking of Dale’s dad and the computer hacker. Who knows though, maybe more will show up? I did bring up the fact that the dome brought back Melanie, so his sister Angie could come back too. He said something like “Exactly, you never know!” Angie comes back this week, but only as a ghost it seems. I have a theory though… more on that in a bit.
So since I last blogged Dale, Sam and Lyle all made it to the outside world. At first I honestly thought it was another dimension, not really the outside world. However since Barbie/Dale and Julia saw one another, I guess not. In the outside world they all connected with Pauline. We learned that Dale’s father owns an energy company and is after the egg, and he wants it before the US government learns about it. He’s the one employing the guards patrolling the dome, it’s not the army. For real? A giant dome comes down and the government isn’t involved? Please, they’d be all over that!
So in the real world, Lyle and Sam both seemed to become fairly sane. Lyle stopped being a biblical preacher, and Sam even acknowledged that he killed Angie. It seems the dome really did make them both nuts, just like Big Jim. I’m still not ready to forgive Sam for killing Angie though. Pauline’s drawings led them to a red door that would take them back to the dome through the lake where the Egg was dropped. On the way though they all had visions. Dale’s was important, he had met Melanie as a kid. She was his babysitter for awhile! She said her mother (maybe it was his father?) wanted her to meet him. Hmmm, I suspect they are half-siblings, having their douche bag of a father in common.
The latest episode had them all return to the dome. Inside Junior has been telling his father way too much. What does it take for Junior to realize his dad is no good? Big Jim knows the outsiders want the egg, and is willing to deliver it if he and Junior can leave. Rebecca has turned to Julia’s side, and Big Jim got the surprise of his life when Pauline returned. Oh yeah, it’s about to go down!
So I have a theory that there must always be four hands as Pauline predicted. When Angie died, the dome brought back Melanie as she was the first to really want to protect the egg and understand its importance. I suspect if Melanie dies again, or any one of the hands, that Angie could be brought back!
Pretty Little Liars Summer Finale: Twisting The Twist?
Posted by Dustin on 08.27.2014 at 9:12 pm
So it seems the show has twisted the twin twist from the books in the summer mid-season finale. Mona convinced the liars that Alison has been the new A all along and has been working to pin everything on them. Indeed Spencer found herself arrested for Bethany’s murder, and based on the previous episode with Melissa’s confession it looked like she could have done it. However it seems the real culprit could be Alison herself.
Mona and the others discovered that Alison definitely knew Bethany. Bethany’s father and Alison’s mother had been having an affair. Is there anyone Alison’s mother didn’t sleep around with? It seems Bethany is the secret that Alison’s mother and Spencer’s dad were working to hide in Rosewood. I’m not sure though why Spencer’s dad would care, other than he too was having an affair with Alison’s mom. Was she perhaps blackmailing him to help her? Did he kill Alison’s mom, or did A do that? That murder seems to be unsolved too.
By the end of the episode Mona called the girls with the goods on Alison. Then we saw A, with blond hair coming out of her hoodie, sneak in and take out Mona. The girls arrived to find Mona’s house covered in bloody handprints all over. We saw A load Mona’s body, well a body in a sheet, into the trunk of her car. It definitely looks like Mona really is dead. But did Alison do it? The show wants us to believe she did, but I don’t know. In the books the body was Alison’s twin and she most surely killed her. But so much has been changed, so Alison as the killer may have been changed as well. It’s a little too easy to think it’s Alison isn’t it?
“Pretty Little Liars” will return in January of 2014.
Rather than a Halloween special as they’ve done in years past, it seems this year’s special will be more of a retrospective show and the liars answering questions. Word is this year we will get a Christmas special instead. The show ended with A making a snow globe of the liars.
“PRETTY LITTLE LIARS” CELEBRATES ITS FANS WITH A ONE-HOUR SPECIAL AIRING AS PART OF ABC FAMILY’S “13 NIGHTS OF HALLOWEEN” PROGRAMMING EVENT
THE “PLL” ARMY CAN TAKE PART IN THE SPECIAL BY SUBMITTING QUESTIONS FOR THE “PLL” CAST AND CREW ON THE “PRETTY LITTLE LIARS” FACEBOOK PAGE AND TWITTER
Half way through its fifth season, “Pretty Little Liars” would like to thank its fans for making it one of television’s most-watched and most-social series with a one-hour fan appreciation special. The special “Pretty Little Liars” episode will air in October 2014 as part of ABC Family’s “13 Nights of Halloween” programming event.
To show their gratitude, the cast and crew of “Pretty Little Liars” will gather together to talk about the most unforgettable moments on the show thus far and to answer fans’ burning questions. Always wanted to know what the cast’s favorite scenes were? Or what was the scariest scene to film? PLL fans should head to the ABC Family “Pretty Little Liars” Facebook page now to submit their burning questions for the cast or tweet their questions using the special hashtag #PLLHalloween, and their questions might just get answered during the special episode.
So last night was the final “True Blood,” and the reaction of many on social media wasn’t positive. Some did like it, a lot more seemed to hate it. Was it a totally unhappy ending? No it wasn’t. Almost everyone got a happy ending. Was it the ending we deserved after 7 years? Hell no! As I said in one of my recent “True Blood” blogs, I hated how Alan Ball ended “Six Feet Under” and worried he’d do it again. Well he did! If you haven’t seen the episode, I’d stop reading now.
So most of the show was actually about Jessica and Hoyt, who decided to get married before Bill met the true death. Seriously, they wasted most of the final show on these two!
Bill was resigned to die and wanted Sookie to fairy ball him, which would make her human and give her the life she wanted too. In the end she couldn’t do that as being fairy is just who she is, she wouldn’t give it up. For that I was happy. However Bill still wanted to die, so she staked him. WTF! Seriously? I had a small hope that Sookie might blast him and somehow he’d become human again. Throughout the episode they teased that possibility. He was becoming “warmer” and Sookie was able to read his thoughts finally. I guess though it was only because he was dying.
Pam and Eric killed Mr. Gus, took over New Blood, and chained Sarah Newmie Newlander up in the basement of Fangtasia where they rented her out to wealthy infected vampires who wanted a full cure. That was her punishment for being the beyotch she was in life. Pam and Eric’s story was at least funny, especially with Sarah asking Pam to turn her so they could be lesbian vamps together and Pam telling her no bleeping way.
The show ended with some fast forwarding. It was several years later and everyone was gathering for Thanksgiving. Jason ended up with Hoyt’s ditched girlfriend and had 3 or 4 kids with her. Lafayette ended up with James. I don’t know if we saw Arlene with her vampire guy or not? Jessica and Hoyt are together still, and Sam came home with his wife and daughter. Adeline was with Wyatt, and of course Andy and Holly. Everyone gathered around the table for dinner. We saw that Sookie was pregnant and had a husband. However we don’t know who he is, as they never told us and we never saw his face. WTF? After all this time and we don’t get full closure or disclosure for Sookie? I guess since she couldn’t be with Bill it wasn’t supposed to matter who she ended up with, just that she ended up happy as Bill wanted. So in the end, it was pretty much about Bill getting what he wanted in a way.
I like my idea that Sookie was able to somehow turn Bill human much better. I think I’ll pretend that is how the show really ended.
Next time Alan Ball decides to make a television show I think I shall skip it and save the hours wasted over its 5-7 year run and watch or do something else.
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!
Info : Please, resolve the addition below before post any new comment...
Dustin : I was planning to get several long over due posts up, but ended up with a computer malfunction and 150 dollars less in my wallet Will try to get something up tonight! Been trying to tweet more too.
Beth : True Blood finale was so disappointing. Ugh
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.

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!
