Mad Men 7.11 “Time & Life” review is coming right up. First, Let’s recap last week’s episode.

Don (Jon Hamm) has to sell his place, but it’s not like selling product in advertising. His realtor is frustrated because it’s so empty and sad. He had a bunch of small sad moments in this episode – Peggy (Elizabeth Moss) yells at him, he fires Mathis (Trevor Einhorn) because he blew it with a client and then insulted Don for it, and then the last shot in the hallway outside of his apartment – depressing.

Joan (Christina Hendricks) meets someone in California who is so not interested in dating someone with kids, having been there, done that. Not really a problem since they are across the country, so she lies about her son. He shows up in NY. She tells the truth and he doesn’t want it. But then he does.

Let’s recap last week’s Outlander, before we get to this week’s review.

Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Geillis (Lotte Verbeek) were defendants at a witch trial, but were really not allowed to present a defense, to no one’s surprise. Ned Gowan (Bill Paterson) did try though. It got to a point where he told the women he could really only save Claire if she renounces Geillis. She refuses of course. Geillis says 1968 to Claire, reveals her smallpox vaccine scar to the crowd, and shouts to the mob that she is the witch. Claire was whipped until my hero, I mean her hero, Jaime (Sam Heughan) comes and saves her. I really hope Laoghaire (Nell Hudson) gets hers for arranging this in order to get Jaime for herself.

Last week’s Gotham thrilled and chilled us. Here’s a recap of “Under The Knife” before this week’s review. Beware! There are a few spoilers after the recap.

The quirky little Ed Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) we know and love is gone. He got a taste for blood when he butchered Ms. Kringle’s handsy boyfriend. I did not even recognize him, and not because his hair was different and he had no glasses on. He was a maniac killer, enjoying it.

Jim (Ben McKenzie) will not back off even though The Ogre called him and warned him. Why should he worry? He made sure Lee (Morena Baccharin) was safe. Barbara (Erin Richards) is not though.

TV Review: The Lizzie Borden Chronicles 1.4 “Welcome To Maplecroft”

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles 104-08

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles
Episode 1.4 “Welcome To Maplecroft”
Directed by Russell Mulcahy
Written by Jason Grote
Starring Christina Ricci, Clea Duvall, Cole Hauser, Bradley Stryker, Jeff Wincott, Olivia Llewellyn, Dylan Taylor, Jessy Schram, John Ralston
Lifetime
Air Date: Sunday, April 26th, 2015, 10pm ET

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles 1.4 “Welcome To Maplecroft” brings up to the halfway point in our bloody Lifetime series. Before that review, let’s recap last week’s episode.

“Flowers” centered on Lizzie’s (Christina Ricci) new business partner, Mr. Flowers (Jonathan Banks). He took care of that nasty little Spencer business for her. An unforeseen loose end is Skipjack (Bradley Stryker) taking the playwright’s ring. Mr. Flowers seems like a useful person for a rich serial killer to have around. Why… someone like that can get goons to beat up annoying Pinkerton detectives, and leave them/him on some train tracks like a damsel left by a twirly-mustached villain. I really enjoy Siringo (Cole Hauser) onscreen. I was hoping he would last til the end. He will, won’t he? Won’t he?

Spoilers ahead for Season 5 of Game Of Thrones…

Last week’s Game Of Thrones, Episode 5.2 “The House Of Black and White”, saw Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) arrive to the House Of Black and White in Braavos in hopes of starting her training to become one of the Faceless Men, while her older sister Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) was traveling with Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen), but to where she did not know – only that it would be far away from Cersei’s clutches. That also meant away from Brienne of Tarth and her squire Podrick, who’ve come to protect her. Meanwhile, back in Kings Landing, Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) promised his sister and one true love Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) that he’d rescue their daughter Myrcella, who is living in Dorne, betrothed to Prince Trystane, nephew to the late Oberyn Martell’s – The Red Viper, who met a horrible end at the hand of The Mountain in Season 4. Over at The Wall, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was voted Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, while Stannis Baratheon (operating as King of Westeros, with his own followers) offered him the thing he’s wanted most — to be legitimized as Ned Stark’s son and become Jon Stark. In Pentos, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and the eunuch Varys (Conleth Hill) planned to join forces with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), who is residing in Meereen where she’s under attack from the Sons of the Harpy who oppose her rule.
