Last week on Gotham, we caught up with all of our old friends. Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith) became queen of the monsters, as the whole city hunted for her. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) made the pot sweeter by offering 1 million dollars for her capture, and then acted sweeter by proclaiming his friendship for Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) Jim Gordon’s new bounty hunter job put him right in line to capture monsters for cash. Ace reporter Valerie Vale (Jamie Chung) showed up as Jim’s next love interest, er… informant? Bruce and Alfred (David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee) returned home to a pissed off Selina (Camren Bicondova), and to piss off the board at Wayne Enterprises. Bruce told them that he has the goods on them. They promptly kidnapped him. One of Mooney’s goons killed Mrs. Peabody by speedy aging, and seemed to kill Ivy (Clare Foley) the same way, as she fell a long long way.

Once Upon a Time
Season 6 Episode 1: “The Savior”
Directed by Eagle Egilsson

Last season on Once Upon A Time, our Storybrooke residents traveled to Camelot, and met King Arthur who was evil and Merlin who was good. Emma (Jennifer Morrison) started there as a dark one, and her loved ones tried to save her. She, in turn (not the best in the decision department), saves Hook’s life by turning him into a dark one. He acts accordingly until the end, when he decides to die heroically instead. My Hero! Zelena (Rebecca Mader) finally found her true love, but he was so bad, he was king of the Underworld, Hades (Greg Germann). Her true love killed Regina’s, and we were so sad to see Robin Hood (Sean Maguire) leave her. They met Brave and Lancelot, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Hercules and Dorothy, and were swept to many lands as this fairy tale often takes us.

Spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead…

Last week on Fear The Walking Dead, Madison foolishly turned on the huge, red sign atop the hotel tower hoping to signal to her son, Nick, who had decided not to travel on with his family. But as expected, the lit sign instead was a beacon for every survivor in the area that a refuge was available. So, that’s why it’s not surprising that this week’s episode, 2.13 “Date of Death,” began by showing a large group of survivors banging at the chained-up hotel gates, desperate to get in. But the hotel group is too scared to let anyone else in, even though the people are pleading with them. Madison does feel remorse for having to turn everyone away after inadvertently luring them there. In the crowd, though, is Madison’s fiance Travis, who was separated from her at the end of the mid-Season 2 finale when he left to be with his disturbed son, Chris. Travis makes his way up to the front, and they manage to squeeze him in without anyone else getting in, and he is reunited with Madison! But, where’s Chris?, Madison and her daughter Alicia ask.

Last week, we discovered the top secret theme of Season 6 of American Horror StoryMy Roanoke Nightmare. The infamous first colony that disappeared hundreds of years ago is the new home to Shelby and Matt Miller. The show is different from prior seasons in that it’s done “Unsolved Mysteries” style with the “real” Shelby (Lily Rabe) and “real” Matt (Andre Holland) narrating their experiences to the camera, while we watch actors in a re-enactment, Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. After a big city scare, The Millers retreat to Matt’s home state, and buy a huge colonial in Roanoke, NC. They instantly become targets for the locals who attack Shelby while Matt is away on a work trip. There also, of course, is a mysterious force lurking in the woods around the house. When Shelby finally takes off, she veers off the road and ends up in the middle of the woods witness to a bizarre cult.

Air Date: Monday, September 19th, 2016, 8pm

Last season, Gotham was besieged with villainy – and most were super crazy. Arkham Asylum was the drain we circled, with the psychotic Doctor Strange (the incredible BD Wong) experimenting with life and monstrous death. Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) got so much closer to the truth, and a glimpse of his future in the batlike Azrael (James Frain), who started out as only a madman on the inside, set on destroying the Wayne family. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) was committed and freed, reunited with his dad at his mother’s grave (Tabitha killed mommy), but that happiness was fleeting. His stepfamily murdered his father, and Penguin returned in full force. Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) completely split apart after killing his girlfriend and framing Gordon for murder. He was caught and thrown into Arkham just in time to join the crazy party. The showdown at the end resulted in all the monsters going free, including season 1 resurrected baddie, Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith).

“Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide…” — “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Queen

After last week’s penultimate episode of Season 2 of Mr. Robot, that song was all I could think in relation to creator Sam Esmail’s cyber drama. I feel just like Elliot (newly crowned Emmy winner for Best Actor, Rami Malek). I don’t know what to believe, I don’t know what is real anymore. Last week was a surreal nightmare. After spending the majority of the season thinking Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallstrom) was dead from a gunshot wound he delivered personally, Wellick joins Elliot for a bizarre cab ride, leaving us desperately searching for clues as to who and what is real. Is Tyrell another manifestation of Elliot’s subconscious like the Mr. Robot himself (Christian Slater)? In the Season 2 finale, Episode 2.12 “eps2.9pyth0n-pt2.p7z,” all of fsociety’s paranoia, as well as the craziness caused by the 5/9 hack come home to roost.

Spoilers for Scream Queens

Last year, the creators of American Horror Story and Glee smashed those two shows together and its crazy offspring was Scream Queens, a horror-comedy filled with quirky dialogue and ridiculous characters that starred the original “Scream Queen” herself, Jamie Lee Curtis. The show was a season-long modern version of the 80s slasher, complete with a masked killer, vicious and bloody murders, and of course, a bevy of sexy young stars to slice and dice through. Despite their being a psycho killer dressed as a Red Devil campus mascot, the main antagonist was Chanel #1 (Emma Roberts), the leader of Kappa House and the Chanels. Curtis played Dean Cathy Munsch, and both were as bad or worse than a killer with a penchant for deaths involving gardening tools and chainsaws.

On last week’s Fear the Walking Dead, Nick bonded with Luciana, and helped out the Colonia by creating more pills for them to trade with local gang leader Marco.

Last week’s episode ended with a bang literally. Darlene (Carly Chaikin) and Cisco (Michael Drayer) took a friend to the hospital and were enjoying a moment of peaceful normalcy together. At the same time Agent Dom DiPierro (Grace Gummer) got a lead that ID’ed Cisco and against her wishes the Feds released his photo to the news media. This made him a target for The Dark Army. As she finds the two sharing a meal a few blocks from the hospital, a Dark Army gunman shows up and opens fire. DiPierro gives chase covered in blood, but whose we don’t know. As for Elliot (Rami Malek), he is facing a grave realization; maybe Mr. Robot was lying to him after all. How else do you explain his disappearance at the same time Joanna Wellick (Stephanie Corneliussen) shows up talking about her husband? Is Tyrell Wellick alive? Questions need to be answered as we hit the penultimate episode in Mr. Robot’s second season.

American Horror Story
Season 6 Episode 1 “American Horror Story Season 6: My Roanoke Nightmare”

Few shows can rival American Horror Story for sheer creepiness. Over its first 5 seasons, Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy have shocked, scared, amused, and at times, befuddled fans. Each season a different theme, the show premiered in 2011 with the mesmerizing Murder House storyline. Since then, the seasons have met with a mix of critical success and backlash. Season 2’s Asylum was perfectly maddening, but seasons 3 and 4 (Coven and Freakshow) were near misses. Last season’s Hotel was a return to form, introducing Lady Gaga into the mix as the ravishing Countess, a vampire dwelling within the walls of a murderous hotel. The creators have acquired a phenomenal set of acting talent, many who return each season in different forms including Oscar winners Kathy Bates and Jessica Lange, Oscar nominee Angela Bassett, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe and more. Season 6’s theme was the subject of a viral campaign with countless ads hinting at possible choices. Ryan Murphy himself introduces the episode asking us if we’ve guessed it, and away we go…

Spoilers for the Season 6 premiere of American Horror Story below.
