Warning! Spoilers below for the season 12 finale of Supernatural!

Last time on Supernatural, hunters were being taken out – Eileen (Shoshannah Stern) got killed by a hellhound. Mary (Samantha Smith) dreamt she killed a hunter, but it wasn’t a dream. The British Men of Letters and Lady Bevell (Elizabeth Blackmore) were brainwashing her. Sam and Dean (Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles) got the best of Bevell, but then Ketch (David Haydn-Jones) came and entombed all 3 of them in the bunker to die, with brainwashed Mary’s help. The power started to reverse between Crowley and Lucifer (Mark Sheppard, Mark Pellegrino), until Lucifer broke free and gleefully killed Crowley.

TV Review: Into The Badlands 2.10 “Chapter XVI: Wolf’s Breath, Dragon Fire” (Finale)

Directed by Paco Cabezas
Written by Alfred Gough, Miles Millar, Matt Lambert
Created by Alfred Gough, Miles Millar
Starring Daniel Wu, Orla Brady, Sarah Bolger, Aramis Knight, Emily Beecham, Oliver Stark, Madeleine Mantock, Ally Ioannides, Nick Frost, Marton Csokas, Chipo Chung

The end of season 2 of Into The Badlands is here and it’s bittersweet. I always hate season finales of my favorite shows. No one likes saying good-bye. On a show like AMC’s Into the Badlands, it can mean saying goodbye in more ways than one. Sunny (Daniel Wu) fought his way back “into the Badlands” with one intention guiding him the whole way… find Veil (Madeleine Mantock) and his baby. While he and new pal Bajie (Nick Frost) worked their way in, the Badlands were crazy with battles, betrayals, and Barons, oh my. Quinn (Marton Csokas) survived Sunny’s attack and has been living with Veil as his “guest.” The Widow (Emily Beecham) has been the true dominant force of the season. When she was essentially given a death sentence during the conclave, her response was to form an alliance with Quinn. This alliance led to Jade’s (Sarah Bolger) removal from the Fort, Ryder’s (Oliver Stark) death, Lydia’s (Orla’s Brady) capture, and Veil’s return to Quinn after an escape. When that was done, it appeared Sunny and Widow would align, but then Widow was exposed to have traded Veil. The Widow was left falling apart, fighting her own daughter and regent Tilda (Ally Ioannides) at the end of last week’s episode. Will Sunny find Veil and have a final showdown with Quinn? Will The Widow finally get what she wants out of M.K. (Aramis Knight)? Will I be able to cope with no Badlands for the rest of the year?!

Lance : “Your approval is back up to 70%”

Oliver: “Was it ever that high?”

Season 3 Episode 22: “Infantino Street”
Directed by Michael Allowitz
Written by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Grainne Godfree

Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns
The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, May 16th, 2017, 8:00pm

Last week on The Flash, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) came up with a flawed (but from the heart) plan to prevent Barry (Grant Gustin) from making new memories, so that Savitar-the-Barry-remnant wouldn’t know what it was. It was too successful. Barry and Savitar got complete amnesia. Both myself and Iris (Candice Patton) were happy to see this lighthearted Barry without all the darkness and pain, falling in love with her all over again. Unfortunately, Barry was also crucial to a court case, resulting in a firebug walking. Said firebug attacked, but Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) had no powers because Savitar never awakened them, and Barry couldn’t control his. Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) showed up to help Cisco and Julian (Tom Felton) fix the mess. They got to the Caitlin underneath. HR and Tracy (Tom Cavanagh, Anne Dudek) started falling in love. She finished the “speed force bazooka” but it needs a lot of energy… energy that is guarded by King Shark.

Last week on Prison Break, the guys tried to figure out how to escape Yemen and ISIL. They went to Omar (Akin Gazi), who tried to trick them, but it did not work. They headed to Phaecia. A&W and Van Gogh (Marina Benedict, Steve Mouzakis) went to the NSA and found Michael (Wentworth Miller) and company with a drone, but Van Gogh snuck off to make sure that ISIL found them too. The boys were able to thwart them, but Cyclops (Amin El Gamal) showed up. They split up to throw him off. Lincoln, Ja, and Whip (Dominic Purcell, Augustus Prew, Rick Yune) ended up in Phaecia, while Michael ended up killing Cyclops, getting grievously wounded in the process. The guys set off some of the fireworks they brought to lead the broken Michael out of the desert.

Last week on AMC’s Into the Badlands, Sunny finally returned and found himself right in the middle of the Baron Chau (Eleanor Matsuura) vs. Widow (Emily Beecham) stand-off. Sunny (Daniel Wu) aligned with Chau, but when the moment was at hand… teamed with Widow on the promise of finding Veil (Madeleine Mantock) and getting to kill Quinn (Marton Csokas). M.K. (Aramis Knight) was used as bait but at least that got him closer to Tilda (Ally Ioannides). Tilda meanwhile, was starting to see mommy Widow for who she really is, especially after Veil called her out. It might be an explosive Mother’s Day for The Widow if Tilda plays that card.
