Shudder
Release date: April 13, 2017

On April 6th, Swedish series Jordskott hit the United States exclusively on AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder. The channel, available online at Shudder.com or on Roku, released the first two episodes of the ten-part series and releases two episodes every Thursday. The first two parts introduced us the strange town of Silverhojd, where police officer Eva Thornblad (Moa Gammel) returned home after her father’s suicide. It’s also the sight where seven years ago her daughter Josefine disappeared by the lake, a presumed drowning. Eva’s return coincides with another small child’s disappearance and her maternal and police instincts are in high gear. Despite sounding like a police procedural, there is a ton of wacky stuff going on in Silverhhojd. Eva’s father was the head of a cellulose factory and according to crazy old man Olof Gran (Hans Mosesson), this “upset the forest.” A girl appears out of nowhere in the middle of the fog and Eva is convinced is Josefine. Except this girl is infected with a parasite and apparently gets nutrients from plants. As Eva digs deeper, her own life is threatened and the conspiracies and mysteries continue to grow…

Last week on Prison Break, there was civil war in Yemen, and the leader of ISIL was being kept in solitary on Ogygia, the jail where Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) was also being held. Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) sent proof of life to Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies), who talked it over with her husband. Michael planned an escape with his cellmates and sent origami messages to Sara and Lincoln. The latter had to find the “Sheikh of Light,” so he, C-Note and Sheba (Rockmond Dunbar, Inbar Lavi) rescued him, his daughter, and 2 other girls in ISIL territory. Michael got the signal – escape was in 24 hours. The leader was released from solitary and hugged Michael.

Last week on AMC’s Into the Badlands, Quinn (Marton Csokas) made his dramatic return during the conclave, unintentionally saving The Widow (Emily Beecham) who was just targeted for death. After a fairly epic battle between all the past and current Barons, Quinn chased down his son and usurper Ryder (Oliver Stark) and stabbed him to death in a heartbreaking scene… no pun intended. While Quinn made his play, Veil (Madeleine Mantock) made hers, attempting to escape after killing one of Quinn’s men. Alas, she was locked in and is still a prisoner. Sunny and Bajie were not even featured last week, this week on Episode 2.5, they move closer to the Badlands…

They found Julia’s shade… and Alice’s too. They escaped taking the Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) shade also.

Last time on Prison Break, T-Bag (Robert Knepper) finally got released from prison, and a picture of a very much alive Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) was waiting upon his release. He went to Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) who brought it to Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies), and attempts were made on both of their lives. Lincoln went to C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar) to get him to Yemen to find out the truth for sure. They were set up, but finally saw Michael who seemed not to know them.

Into The Badlands
Episode 2.4 “Palm Of The Iron Fox”
Directed by Toa Fraser
Written by Daniel C. Connolly
Starring Daniel Wu, Orla Brady, Sarah Bolger, Aramis Knight, Emily Beecham, Oliver Stark, Madeleine Mantock, Ally Ioannides, Nick Frost, Marton Csokas, Chipo Chung
AMC
Air date: Sunday, April 9th, 2017, 10pm

Warning: Spoilers for Into the Badlands below:

Last week on Into the Badlands, Sunny (Daniel Wu) and Bajie (Nick Frost) had an intense encounter with an infamous ex-Clipper, that ended with the duo escaping after a brutal battle. Sunny’s refusal to kill was almost Batman-like, but I think he’s saving up his remaining kills for when he gets back to the Badlands. In the Badlands, it’s all about the Conclave, a meeting of Barons called by Ryder (Oliver Stark). The Widow (Emily Beecham) sees this as an opportunity to unite other barons to her cause. The wildcard in all of this is Quinn (Marton Csokas). First, he is presumed dead, and second he has built and trained himself a reliable army of clippers. Does Quinn make a play at the Fort that once was his, against his son and former fiancé Jade (Sarah Bolger), who betrayed him?

Spoilers below.

Last time on The Magicians, Penny (Arjun Gupta) got his first task, to retrieve a way overdue library book. The borrower had advice for Kady (Jade Tailor) and put a spell on the card, so another librarian killed himself rather than be forced to open the “Poison Room.” Eliot (Hale Appleman) was acting like “Groomzilla.” Margo (Summer Bishil) confessed to Fen (Brittany Curran), who told her to fix it before being kidnapped by the fairies. Quentin took drugs and saw Julia’s shade in a vision, who asked him for help. Dean Fogg (Rick Worthy) helped Julia and Q (Stella Maeve, Jason Ralph) talk to another version of Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) who knows about shades (they have all lived and died 39 times). She told Q that they are in the Underworld and they need an ancient one, a dragon, to get there and come back.

When Prison Break ended on May 24th, 2009, it seemed that finally brothers Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield (Dominic Purcell, Wentworth Miller) could stop running and live their sweet life. After all the death, guns to the head, and betrayals at every turn, Paul Kellerman (Paul Adelstein) was the one to finally free them at the end, after being the main antagonist of the Company at the beginning. After Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies) killed his mother, and General Krantz (Leon Russom) got arrested, Michael finally handed over Scylla to Kellerman (now Congressman), and he kept his end. Michael, Lincoln, Sara, Sucre (Amaury Nolasco), Mahone (William Fichtner), and C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar) signed their genuine freedom papers, and walked away. They sent T-Bag back (Robert Knepper) to Fox River. The epilogue showed him and his pocket, the general getting the electric chair, and C-Note as a happy UPS worker. Mahone was leaving his love, Agent Lang (Barbara Eve Harris), Sucre said goodbye to his daughter, and Lincoln said goodbye to Sofia (Danay Garcia). They all reunited with Sara and her son at the grave of Michael Scofield.
