If you’re a fan of The Blacklist then you’re going to be familiar with the skeleton of The Enemy Within. Jennifer Carpenter plays the “Red” character here as disgraced former CIA head, Erica Shepherd, accused of collaborating with the most notorious and deadly active terrorist around, Mikael Tal. She disclosed names of four CIA operatives working on missions to take him down. All four wound up dead.
How dare The Gifted start this episode off with a flashback to a happier Thunderblink!? I’m still in mourning. Although in this cozy scene between John and Clarice, she pontificates about a desire to portal between places… I’m hoping this is foreshadowing to the reveal Blink is alive and well in another dimension somewhere.
After last week’s breathtaking episode, “Stigmata Martyr” slows things to a simmer, but a brutal one at that.
Police entitlement, are you allowed to take favors, bargaining chips, the odd crème brûlée, in exchange for doing your job? Thus far, The Rookie has mostly tried to side-step the harsh realities of being a cop. The show is too light-hearted to dig into police brutality or the topical political issues. So in terms of “police entitlement” the episode only brushes by it on a surface level.
When we last left off with Chase Dreams, Brooke had secured him a date to a high school dance for publicity (and because she messed up fantastically with the whole Rachel Kline fiasco).
Well the secret’s out! Will accidentally initiates a game of telephone with his daughter’s secret crush on Graham while discussing it with Angie. The second the twins catch word of it, the whole classroom knows within a matter of seconds.
What exactly does someone with throat cancer eat? According to Max, many disgusting smoothie blends of his favorite foods. In an episode all about people who fall through the cracks, abandoned by those who love them, it’s no wonder not one person stopped to offer Max some breath spray after his fifth sip of bagel-caper-lox blend.
When a scoutmaster disappears, Hynek investigates what could be the first real proof of an impending alien invasion. Elsewhere, Quinn has a new assignment from General Harding.
Doom Patrol is absolutely absurd. It’s wacky. It’s darkly hilarious. Most of all, Doom Patrol is a wonderfully crazy, meta, delight. It’s unlike any other superhero show currently on the air, it’s unlike any superhero movie created in the last decade. It is a new take on the superhero genre, one that is begging to be pushed into new territory and Doom Patrol accomplishes just that.
Proven Innocent wastes no time in going for the jugular. In the opening scene a man shoots himself front and center and an apathetic Madeline Scott merely wants to know what happens to dogs after a criminal kills themselves.
