Gotham 312-05

Last time on Gotham, Jim gave Lee (Ben McKenzie, Morena Baccharin) a really unfair last minute declaration of love, which she did not accept. Mario played with Jim, winning… until his blood test came back positive with the virus. Jim promised Falcone (John Doman) he would not kill Mario, but that promise was broken. Barbara told Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) of Penguin’s (Robin Lord Taylor) murder motive, so he went to her, Butch, and Tabitha (Erin Richards, Drew Powell, Jessica Lucas) to team up against Penguin (after apologizing for the maiming of course). Selina’s mom showed up in time to save her, Bruce and Alfred (David Mazouz, Sean Pertwee) from a sticky and dire situation.

Colony 201-01

Colony
Season 2 Episode 1: “Eleven.Thirteen”
Directed by Juan José Campanella
Written by Ryan Condal
Starring Josh Holloway, Sarah Wayne Callies, Peter Jacobson, Tory Kittles, Amanda Righetti, Paul Guilfoyle, Ally Walker, Alex Neustaedter, Isabella Crovetti-Cramp
Created by Ryan Condal, Carlton Cuse
USA
Air Date: Thursday, January 12th, 2017, 10:00pm

Last season on Colony, we met the Beaumans. Will (Josh Holloway) was former FBI recruited by the new government for his skills, and agreeed to get his missing son back. Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies) was recruited by Broussard (Tory Kittles) to join the Resistance and spy on her husband. As you can imagine, that did not work out too well, or stay secret for more than 2 seconds. Both sides did questionable things – betrayal, murder, theft, chaos – just a perfect little family. Everything was out in the open at the end as Will and Katie took a stand on opposite sides, and Katie ended up alone.

Spoilers ahead.

Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) was having a crisis of faith – fundamentalist Floki! The sons of Ragnar were visited by Odin to tell them the news of his death. They all have vengeance in their hearts. The Seer (John Kavanagh) told Lagertha that she would be killed by a son of Ragnar.

This Is Us
Episode 1.11 “The Right Thing to Do”
Directed by Timothy Busfield
Written by Aurin Squire, Kay Oyegun
Created by Dan Fogelman
Starring Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Ron Cephas Jones, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan, Jon Huertas, Eris Baker, Faithe Herman, Lonnie Chavis, Mackenzie Hancsicsak, Parker Bates
NBC
Air date: Tuesday, January 10th, 2017, 9:00pm ET

Last time on This Is Us, the mantra was… “Nothing bad ever happens on Christmas Eve.” It was Christmas time for everyone, and in the past, Kate had to get her appendix taken out on Christmas Eve, while Dr. K may be dying. In the present, Randall (Sterling K. Brown) thought his family night would be a wash as everyone seemed to cancel. He went to his office party and literally talked a friend off a ledge. Then all of his family showed up and it was as lovely as you could expect. Even William’s (Ron Cephas Jones) special friend came – Randall’s kid outed him. Kevin (Justin Hartley) went to Sloane’s (Milana Vayntrub) for Chanukah and it was adorable. Kate (Chrissy Metz) was miserable because she had broken up with Toby (Chris Sullivan), who swooped in and declared he could not live without her in front of his family… then crashed into the table later on with what looked like a heart attack. Okay, that part was not so lovely. It left us hanging as to whether Kate would lose her happiness.

Check Out The Sneak Peek Of The 2nd Season ‘Colony’ Premiere
Olympus Athens   |  @   |  

Colony 2nd Season Sneak Peek

When we last saw the Beauman family, Katie and Will (Sarah Wayne Callies, Josh Holloway) were on different sides of the law, but Will’s heart was not really in his cause. He just wanted his son back, and his family together. They both got caught up in this bloody, violent war, but what’s great about Colony (and probably the reason for its renewal) is these complex relationships, not only between wife and husband, and father and son, but the partnerships, which are deep too.

Check out the sneak peek below.

Vikings
Season 4 Episode 16: “Crossings”
Directed by Ciarán Donnelly
Written and created by Michael Hirst

The History Channel
Air Date: Wednesday, January 4th, 2016, 9:00pm

Spoilers below for the last 2 episodes of Vikings:

Ragnar told Ivar (Travis Fimmel, Alex Høgh Andersen) he was destined to become greater than everyone, and to use his gifts to ascend to that greatness. He also commanded him in a whisper to seek revenge not on Aelle (Ivan Kaye), but Ecbert (Linus Roache). Ivar and Athelstan’s son formed a connection akin to the beginning of Ragnar and Athelstan’s bond. Ecbert is really upset at the thought of handing him over. On the journey, a blind man (who turned into the Seer-John Kavanagh) said he could “see” Ragnar. Aelle tortured Ragnar to get him to ask for absolution. He refused. He thought about his life, his loves. As he was about to be lowered into a pit of snakes, he made a speech about the glories of Valhalla, and then dropped. Ragnar Lothbrok was dead.
