TV Review: Damien 1.9 “The Devil You Know”
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Damien 109-06

Damien
Season 1 Episode 9: “The Devil You Know”
Directed by Jennifer Lynch
Written by K.C. Perry & Glen Mazzara
Created by Glen Mazzara
Starring Bradley James, Barbara Hershey, Megalyn EK, Omid Abtahi, Scott Wilson, David Meunier
A&E
Air Date: Monday, May 2nd, 2016, 10pm

Last week’s Damien was maybe my favorite episode of the season. Charles Powell (Joe Doyle) was killing in Damien’s name. Damien (Bradley James) made it clear he wanted nothing to do with the potential of being the Antichrist, and beat Powell nearly to death. It was another acolyte, his psychiatrist, who finished Powell off in a rather bloody finale. More bodies on the pile surrounding Damien Thorn, and Detective Shay (David Meunier) is feeling the heat… literally. Almost burned alive in his car while following Damien, he has been attacked by dogs, and had his son threatened at home. How far is Shay willing to go to find answers? Speaking of questions and answers, Amani (Omid Abtahi) figured out that his new hookup Veronica (Melanie Scrofano) is actually Ann Rutledge’s daughter, and was scoping out Damien’s place on her behalf. Veronica might be dead after messing with the wrong nun. With only 2 episodes left in their first season, let’s see how unholy Damien can get!

TV Review: The Americans 4.7 “Travel Agents”

Americans review

The Americans
Season 4, Episode 7 – “Travel Agents”
Directed by Dan Attias
Written by Tanya Barfield
Starring: Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Lev Gorn, Susan Misner, Costa Ronin, Keidrich Sellati, Holly Taylor, Richard Thomas, Dylan Baker, Alison Wright, Noah Emmerich, and Frank Langella
FX
Air date: Wednesday, April 27th, 2016, 10pm

The Americans isn’t a show that has a dense number of concurrent plots, so it is somewhat of a rarity for those additional narratives to slow in service of a larger story. But when the show focuses on a singular plot, it typically means we’re in for a doozy. “Travel Agents” delivers; heightening and lifting the show’s normal atmosphere of tension and dread to frightening new levels.

HBO
Air date: May 1, 2016

WARNING: Spoilers for HBO’s Game Of Thrones….

Last week’s Season 6 premiere of Game Of Thrones was packed with returning characters and the tying up of loose ends. After waiting a year, there was a lot of satisfaction in the storyline; therefore, I didn’t expect much to happen in the follow-up episode, 6.2 “Home.” And for the most part, even though there were some nice new tidbits and a few semi-shocking events, the episode for the most part was slow.

But, with a show like Game Of Thrones (just like with AMC’s The Walking Dead, a slow episode means that something is doing to go down in the last few minutes. And oh boy, did it!

Last time on Arrow, the gang got wind of Damien Darhk’s (Neal McDonough) impending escape and go to stop him.

Darhk finally got his revenge for Lance’s (Paul Blackthorne) betrayal by stabbing Laurel (Katie Cassidy) with one of The Green Arrow’s arrows. She seemed to be doing fine in the hospital, and had a raw heart to heart with Ollie telling him she loved him, and telling him a secret. She passed unexpectedly.
