Last week on Supernatural, Dean (Jensen Ackles) was hit with a whammy of a witch spell that made him slowly lose his memories. Although nice to see Dean a bit happy for once, we and Sam (Jared Padalecki) were quite worried as soon he would forget how to breathe. Rowena (Ruth Connell) came to the rescue, as the culprits were a family of witches that needed to be put down to save Dean, and just because.

Warning! Spoilers below for the 5th season premiere of Bates Motel!

When we last left Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) on Bates Motel, he had killed his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga), and threw away his meds to be reunited with her. He also dug up her body and put it in the basement. He almost pulled the trigger and ended it all, when the full psychosis kicked in complete with music, as Norma returned to live in the fantasy that they are happy together, forever. He did not tell Dylan (Max Thieriot) she was dead. Alex (Nestor Carbonell) freaked out in grief, knowing Norman did it, and was hauled off to jail for perjury, not the punch he gave Norman.

Last time on Colony, two bombs went off. The first was in the labor camp. Bram (Alex Neustaedter) pretended (maybe) to be on Snyder’s (Peter Jacobson) side, while also being on Maya’s (Jessica Parker Kennedy) side. That didn’t work for two others who were shot in the head before Snyder could question them. Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies) kicked Lindsey (Erin Way) out of the house for punishing Charlie (Jacob Buster). Will returned to work, surprised that Jennifer wasn’t there. The 2nd bomb went off and he went to the surveillance room to find her. Next was her house where his new partner, Bob (Toby Huss) showed up, telling him she couldn’t adapt so was “transferred.” Broussard (Tory Kittles) and his team got their hands on drone tech. Katie downloaded some intel on Bram at Maddie’s (Amanda Righetti) house.

Cade (Wolé Parks) told Damon (Ian Somerhalder) that they were free, but Stefan would die at midnight unless he retrieved the Maxwell journal.

He told Alaric (Matthew Davis) he had an idea on how to kill the devil. Kai (Chris Wood) walked in. Bonnie (Kat Graham) wanted to grab Enzo (Michael Malarkey) from the other side, but her mother stopped her.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

On last week’s mid-season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead, Rick and some of his crew from Alexandria went to both the Hilltop colony and the Kingdom to get the two communities to join his fight against Negan and the Saviors. But both of those groups turned Rick down, fearing that they’d lose if they went up against the Saviors. It seemed like the Alexandrians would remain on their own. When they returned home, they find their pantry has been emptied and Father Gabriel is gone. At first, it seemed as if Gabriel made off with everything and abandoned them, but Rick knows better. He found a clue left behind – the word “Boat,” and figured out that he must return to the boat area where they’d recently found supplies. When they arrive back to the area, they are surrounded by a new group of people carrying weapons. But Rick wasn’t afraid; instead, he smiled.

In the latest episode, 7.10 “New Best Friends,” we find out why Rick was smiling and what happened to Father Gabriel, as well as what’s happening back at the Kingdom and with the self-exiled Carol.

Legion 102 Header

Episode 1.2 “Chapter 2”
Written by Noah Hawley
Directed by Michael Uppendahl
Starring Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, Jean Smart
FX Network
Air date: February 15, 2017

Last week’s premiere of the longly awaited new FX & Marvel series Legion, lived up to any and all expectations. It was in this humble reviewer’s opinion, one of the best pilot episodes in TV history. Dan Stevens plays David Haller, a mutant with many abilities, many which remain unseen. We watch Haller’s journey through mental wards, where he befriends Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) and woos Syd (Rachel Keller). The whole first half felt like One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest on an acid trip. Haunted by visions and powers, Haller escaped the institution after kissing Syd and switching bodies with her, but quickly finds himself locked in another room being interrogated by unknown government officials, who are either trying to harness his mutant powers or destroy the potential threat. He is inevitably rescued by Syd along with a team of mutants led by Melanie Bird (Jean Smart). Bring on episode 2!

Based on the novel by Lev Grossman
Starring Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta, Summer Bishil, Rick Worthy, Jade Tailor
Air Date: Wednesday, February 15th, 2017, 9:00pm

Last week on The Magicians, it was the showcase showdown for the Beast (Charles Mesure) and Reynard (Mackenzie Astin), and everything got totally messed up… except for one super heroic sacrifice by Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley). Marina (Kacey Rohl), Julia (Stella Maeve), and the Beast got Reynard right where they wanted him, but then Penny (Arjun Gupta) swooped in and stole the beast (and Julia by accident). Marina was left alone with Reynard, and he literally chewed her up and spit her out. Back in Fillory, Ember (Dominic Burgess) took a dump in the wellspring, and the gang fought the Beast. Alice let herself be consumed so she could kill him, and Quentin (Jason Ralph) had to release his fire demon on her to prevent her from destroying Eliot and Margo (Hale Appleman, Summer Bishil).

Episode 1.5 “Episode 5”
Written by Chips Hardy & Steven Knight
Directed by Anders Engstrom
Starring Tom Hardy, Oona Chaplin, David Hayman, Michael Kelly, Jonathan Pryce, Jefferson Hall, Franka Potente, David Hayman
Air date: February 14th, 2017

Spoilers below for the FX series Taboo:

Last week on FX’s Taboo, everyone’s plans had a wrench thrown in them. James Delaney (Tom Hardy) had a chemist mixing gunpowder to use as a trade chip into China. But he is now being blackmailed by American doctor Dumbarton (Michael Kelly), and all the gunpowder must go to him. This required chemist Cholmondeley (Tom Hollander) to add an explosive chemical to the mixture, something he was not too keen on doing. Adding to this issue, was Delaney’s estranged young son helping to prepare the powder. At the same time the East India Company and their leader Sir Stuart Strange (Jonathan Pryce) were having an inquiry opened into the sinking of a ship where over 200 slaves drown; a ship that Delaney may have been on. And perhaps the root of all Delaney’s unrest was Zilpha (Oona Chaplin), his half sister and beloved, who was brutally beaten and raped by her husband Thorne (Jefferson Hall) after he found out about their secret tryst.
