Who else is still reeling from the season six finale of The Vampire Diaries? The tearjerker episode capping off a twisty-turny, dramatic, exciting season saw the end of Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev). After finding out early on that this was Dobrev’s last season and making my way through the episodes, I remember asking myself: Can a show go on without its main character? But, as I thought about those she left behind, I felt myself caring so deeply about what happens to them, particularly Alaric (Matthew Davis). This guy is arguably the most tragic character in the entire series, and that’s saying a lot since they have all had some pretty bad things happen to them. I found myself describing the main group of young friends — Elena, Jeremy (Steven McQueen), Matt (Zach Roerig), Tyler (Michael Trevino), Bonnie (Kat Graham), and now Caroline (Candice Accola) — as a “generation of orphans.” Thank God they have Alaric…but will he be able to fulfill his fatherly role through all of his understandable grief?

Behold! The Monolith Architects of the Void Album Cover

Behold! The Monolith
Architects of the Void
Arctic Forest Records
Release date: September 29, 2015

It’s been a long road back from tragedy for Behold! The Monolith. In early 2013, the Los Angeles-based stoner/doom outfit was among the brightest rising stars in the genre. Their second album, Defender/Redeemist, which was produced by the legendary Billy Anderson, had just been released to very positive reviews and they were about to embark on a tour in support of it. Then on June 21st, tragedy struck when the band’s 29-year-old bassist and lead singer Kevin McDade was killed in an auto accident. Remaining members Matt Price and Chase Manhattan were left devastated and unsure of their future as a band. It was at the behest of the McDade family that they made the decision to carry on as Behold! The Monolith in honor of their fallen brother.

Arrow Season 4 Header

Season 4 Episode 1: “Green Arrow”
Directed by Thor Freudenthal
Written by Marc Guggenheim, Wendy Mericle, Greg Berlanti, Beth Schwartz
Created by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg
Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Paul Blackthorne
The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, October 7th, 2015, 8:00pm

Superhero season is officially back! Yesterday kicked off with The Flash, and tonight it’s time for its darker cousin, Arrow.

When we last saw Oliver Queen aka Arrow (Stephen Amell), he was happily driving down a sunny road, away from the chaos and towards his new happy life with Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). Matt Nable‘s Ra’s al Ghul was defeated, and Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) took his place. Thea (Willa Holland) embraced her inner superhero in her red leather outfit, after her boyfriend Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) left town. It looks like Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) exploded (but we know better), and Diggle (David Ramsey) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) are still in town fighting crime, most likely against her anti-vigilante father Lance’s wishes (Paul Blackthorne).

We all caught up? Don’t read on unless you’ve watched the episode, for spoilers lie ahead.

The Flash 201-01

The Flash
Season 2 Episode 1: “The Man Who Saved Central City”
Directed by Ralph Hemecker
Written by Gabrielle Stanton, Andrew Kreisberg
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdez, Tom Cavanagh, Victor Garber

The CW

Hooray! My favorite night in television came speeding back yesterday! The Flash returned Tuesday night, and was just how I remembered – fun, fast, and funny. This Arrow spinoff began last year with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) – a skinny, get-sand-kicked-in-your-face kinda guy, a genius lab rat for the CCPD, whose mother was murdered when he was a boy, and his dad wrongly jailed for it. One night, S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator exploded during its unveiling, causing the creation of Metahumans, people infused with extraordinary, and very specific power. Barry was struck by lightning dropping him into a 9-month coma. When he woke up, he was The Flash (sans costume at first). He began to work with Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and his team, Cisco and Caitlin (Carlos Valdes and Danielle Panabaker), to defeat Metahumans (because they were, for the most part, evil). His dad’s friend, Detective West (Jesse L. Martin) had taken him in as a boy, and he grew up with his daughter Iris (Candice Patton), and nurses a secret crush and a secret superhero identity. The season saw the identity of his mother’s murderer, and the selfless death of Iris’s boyfriend, Eddie (Rick Cosnett).

Tons of spoilers. The episode was great. I was giddy throughout. So freakin’ good!
