Claire got lost, but was found when the ghost of an Indian led her back to Jamie via her shoes.

Last week on Outlander, Jocasta (Maria Doyle Kennedy) named Jamie (Sam Heughan) her heir, but Claire (Caitriona Balfe) had a problem owning slaves to the detriment of their own lives. Predictably, a white man in the wrong caused a slave to touch him and now wanted the slave to die by hanging the slave via meat hook. Claire begged Jamie, as the man of the house, to save the slave. Jamie did and Claire performed surgery on him in the house. All of the plantation owners demanded the head of the slave or threatened to burn down the house. In an impossible situation, Claire allowed the slave to die with dignity.

Blessed Are The Children Header

Blessed are the Children
Directed by Chris Moore
Written by Chris Moore and Chris Wesley
Starring Kaley Ball, Keni Bounds, Arian Thigpen, Jordan Boyd, Michael Kinslow, David Moncrief
Not Rated
98 Minutes
Macabre Films
Released October 23, 2018

Blessed are the Children is the kind of horror film that can and likely will offend someone in 2018. Despite that… or maybe in spite of that, it feels right at home amongst the popular 70s and 80s slashers it gleefully pays homage to. Co-writer and director Chris Moore stretches the film’s low budget to its extremes and ends up with a film with shockingly good gore effects, that tackles a taboo subject in a way only a horror film could.

Last week on Mayans MC, we were reintroduced into Kurt Sutter’s world of biker gangs, this time on the Latin side. The Mayans MC were featured in the Sons of Anarchy pilot, and in return, the Sons (with a new leader) had a cameo in this pilot. Young Ezekial (EZ) Reyes (JD Pardo) is a prospect with a brother in the club, a butcher father (not of humans) who is sucked in somehow, a son and an ex who are now the family of a cartel leader, and a detective to whom he slips info to. This kid is in all kinds of trouble. And not because he’s in an MC, where everyone shoots up rivals or that they sell drugs through a dress shop front. Excited yet?

Warning! Spoilers for episode 2 below.

This means finding the Monk who knows where the body is hidden. David is spending an awful lot of time inside Cary’s immersion tank bouncing back and forth through time and the Astral Plane.

“My Boomstick; it’s got me out of a lot of scrapes but be careful… It’s got a hair trigger, kick like a mule.”

Warning: spoilers below…

This was a bad week for fans of Ash vs Evil Dead as STARZ announced that it would not be renewing the show for a fourth season. While the series hit a creative peak this season, the ratings simply were not there. And so this weekend saw the penultimate episode for my favorite show on television. And god dammit they are going down swinging. Last week saw Ash die in order to enter the Rift and rescue Brandy and Kelly. He was half successful as Brandy returned with him thanks to Pablo’s Brujo Especial powers. Kelly is trapped though thanks to Kaya still controlling her body. Let’s hold back the tears for one more week and brace ourselves as tonight, The Dark Ones arrived…
