After a disjointed Season 3, Frank and Claire are back to doing what they do best — clawing their way to power. Frank faces his toughest election, while Claire has her own agenda, but the past may be closing in on both of them.
Peter Pan begins, but with a friendly Captain Hook, Rooney Mara as an Indian, and songs by Nirvana and the Ramones, you’ll understand the original story even less once you watch the prequel.
Kim gets an unexpected offer. Mike gets an offer he can’t refuse. Jimmy still doesn’t fit in at work. A couple of Hector’s relatives come for a visit.
Pablo, Alba’s first love, is back in town and is spreading bad luck wherever he goes. Jane’s future in laws declare they hate her, Rogelio is still kidnapped, Petra doesn’t want to bond with her babies, and Rafael’s half brother Derek is being mysterious. Wait, those things can’t all be because of one man’s curse? In telenoveland, they can be.
In the aftermath of Vasquez’ untimely death, Alex goes to visit the one person she’s sure she can trust, and he tries to shoot her. But they’re still besties because in a show where you’re pretty sure your twin is a terrorist, anything goes.
“The Fly actually managed to be superior to its ‘50s predecessor. This is because it drastically toned down the tongue-in-cheek elements seen in the earlier version.”
This week on Once: a daring rescue goes awry; a reunion between old lovers reminds us just how incestuous this show actually is; Regina gets a new job as a horse whisperer; and a female character’s “secret” pregnancy is revealed by looking at her husband’s balls.
THE AMERICANS: Keep It Under Wraps (S4 E1 Recap)
It’s the season finale of How to Get Away With Murder! Annalise must confront some family drama when she returns home to avoid responsibilities. Meanwhile, the ANTLS freak out and wait for Annalise to save the day. Flashbacks give insight into Frank’s role into Annalise’s accident. Cicely Tyson guest stars.
It’s the obligatory “superhero turns evil” episode as Kara gets exposed to Red Kryptonite. Also: loving references to one of the worst comic book movies ever! But no Kara vs. Supergirl junkyard fight, sadly.
Kim is the one who saves herself — almost. Jimmy has a babysitter. Mike gets an offer in a scene that should ring a few bells for Breaking Bad fans.
It’s time to say good-bye to a character none of us really knew, or cared about, so we can make way for more new NATS with backstories that should have kept them out of the FBI.
“Men’s-only locker room, casual misogyny when it comes to humor, assumptions that women are only interested in material goods. Glad to see the future hasn’t changed, 1969.”
This week, Snow White remembers how awesome it was to make out with Hercules, and it causes her to decide she doesn’t want to be that old dishrag, Mary Margaret, anymore. Also, three cast members get head, but not in the fun way you are probably imagining . . .
As the police investigate the Hapstell case further, the ANTLs take turns blaming Annalise for all of their problems. There’s drinking, crying, secrets revealed, random hook ups–yep, just another typical HTGAWM episode.
“No matter what Yu-Gi-Oh tries to push, believing in yourself isn’t enough. Beg pardon, Inuyasha, but you can’t just swing Tessaiga around like a drunken baseball player. Hey, Naruto, sometimes you have to do more than say ‘believe it’ and punch.”
It’s the motherload of telenovela tropes! Babies being born, hostages being held, a long-lost brother revealed, dramatic heart to heart conversations about love and sex and…accusations of plagiarism? Jane the Virgin runs down every big telenovela trope as Petra finally gives birth.
This non-comedy gets a suitable non-ending as all the plot threads we’ve been following for six months devolve into a terrible musical number and the strangest closing credits in history.
Jimmy gets slammed at work. Mike gets slammed in front of a restaurant. Kim gets sent to a dungeon. And Chuck has a relapse. Not the best week for anyone.
Welcome back to Quantico — back to constant time shifts to keep us from noticing that for every two minutes of action there’s fifty minutes of nothing, but who cares when everyone is so pretty and there’s always a locker room and/or wrestling scene?
