Last week on This Is Us, Jack Pearson and his sons and daughter had a rough day. Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) went to see Rebecca’s (Mandy Moore) band play and jealousy creeped in, especially after Ben (Sam Trammell) revealed they used to date. He told her he didn’t want her to go on tour, and went and spent Valentine’s Day alone. Kate (Chrissy Metz) apologized to Toby (Chris Sullivan) for making him feel bad. Kevin (Justin Hartley) was freaking out about the play’s opening night. But Randall (Sterling K. Brown) had the worst day of all. Willam (Ron Cephas Jones) is worse. Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) had to go out of town. He blanked out at his really important work presentation, and has the shakes. He made a strange call to Kevin, who ran out on his play to hold a crying, rocking Randall.

Last week on This Is Us, we were treated to the wedding of Jack and Rebecca Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore), and much of why we fell in love with this awesome couple. He surprised her on their anniversary with a night in their first apartment. She told him she wanted to go on tour. Kevin (Justin Hartley) finally made some hesitant headway in his effort to win Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge) back – baby steps. Randall (Sterling K. Brown) was losing ground at work and also his grip on family life. William’s (Ron Cephas Jones) impending doom was affecting him greatly. Toby (Chris Sullivan) tried to join the fat camp, but Kate (Chrissy Metz) sent him away.

Warning! Spoilers below for tonight’s episode of This Is Us.

Last time on This Is Us, we got a montage of the “big three” combo birthday parties, until the time kids asked for separate parties, and their loving (and crazy) parents decided to oblige. Randall, who was not upset, and Kate, who was upset, did not get exactly what their parents had hoped. The motive for the parties was Kevin getting close to Kate’s best friend Sophie. He ended up marrying and losing her. Toby helped Kevin (Chris Sullivan, Justin Hartley) come to the unexpected realization that Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge) was his true love. He went and declared. William (Ron Cephas Jones) was feeling great having quit chemo, and hijacked Randall (who was losing cred at work) to go shopping and teach him how to drive. The end of the episode gave us a glimpse of Jack’s funeral (Noooo!!!!), with Rebecca and his teenage kids mourning him.

DVD Review: Broken Vows

Broken Vows movie banner Jamie Alexander

Broken Vows
DVD | VOD
Written by Jim Agnew & Sean Keller
Directed by Bram Coppens
Starring Wes Bentley, Jamie Alexander, Cam Gigandet, Alexandra Breckenridge
Lionsgate
Release Date: October 11, 2016

Broken Vows is a modern twist on the classic plot line perhaps most famously done in Adrian Lyne’s Fatal Attraction. In this film, the gender roles are reversed, and a potential wedding is the lynchpin of the plot. The writers, Jim Agnew and Sean Keller, have a resume, writing for horror maestro Dario Argento in 2009’s Giallo and for Oscar winner Nicolas Cage in 2014’s Rage. The director, Bram Coppens, is making his feature film debut and thankfully for him, he has a good cast with a truly creepy lead antagonist.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale

SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale Episode 516 “Conquer.”

AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale — Episode 516 “Conquer” — aired on Sunday night and thankfully, we didn’t get the usual heartbreaking shockers that typically accompany these final episodes. Instead, we got, what I felt was, a perfect ending to a great season, especially these last few episodes.

The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which centered on the town meeting, where Rick’s fate was to be decided. AMC has also released two behind-the-scenes featurettes — one is a 3-minute “Making of” featurette on the booby trap scene, while the other is a 5 1/2-minute “Inside Look” at what was going on at the Alexandria Safe Zone, as well as what Daryl and Aaron came up against on the outside.

You can watch all the videos here below.

The Walking Dead
Season 5, Episode 16 “Conquer” (Season 5 Finale)
Directed by Greg Nicotero

Warning – Spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale – Episode 516 “Conquer.”

For tonight’s Season 5 finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead, the showrunners promised us blood. They promised us loss. And we got both of those things in Episode 516 “Conquer.” But, for this final installment of the season, we also saw redemption, forgiveness, and enlightenment, as well as a look at some of the real horrors that await the residents — both original and new — of the Alexandria Safe Zone.

It’s well known that fans of The Walking Dead have every intension of rioting if one of the main, fan-favorite characters dies. The show has made it a habit of shockingly killing off some of the beloved people who we’re just not ready to say good-bye to. Thankfully, for the season finale, they didn’t pull that gimmick. Instead, we see the culmination and resolution of some of the biggest, most contentious relationships and situations of this season.

Walking Dead 515

The Walking Dead
Season 5, Episode 15 “Try”
Directed by Michael E. Satrazemis
Written by Angela Kang
Starring Andrew Lincoln, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohen, Norman Reedus, Michael Traynor, Tovah Feldshuh, Michael Cudlitz, Melissa McBride, Major Dodson, Alexandra Breckenridge, Seth Gilliam, Josh McDermitt
AMC
Air Date: March 22, 2015

Warning – Spoilers for The Walking Dead Episode 515 “Try.”

Tonight’s Episode 515 “Try” of AMC’s The Walking Dead, the residents — old and new — of the Alexandria Safe Zone are coping with the loss of those who perished in the last episode. But, in the zombie apocalypse, there’s no time to grieve. Throw on some Nine Inch Nails and have a little cry, but then it’s back to business.

And the business of the day is what exactly happened out there on that supply run that ended so disastrously? It’s up to Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh) to decide. So far, the leader of the Safe Zone has come across as an intelligent, fair, and intuitive person who seems to see through all the lies and deceit. She’s exactly who you’d want to be the final word in the community. But, is she too good to be true? If so, will she last? Let’s hope.

The Walking Dead Episode 514 Lauren Cohan as Maggie Greene

The Walking Dead
Season 5, Episode 14 “Spend”
Directed by Jennifer Lynch
Written by Matthew Negrete
Starring Andrew Lincoln, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohen, Norman Reedus, Michael Traynor, Tovah Feldshuh, Michael Cudlitz, Melissa McBride, Major Dodson, Alexandra Breckenridge, Seth Gilliam, Josh McDermitt
AMC
Air Date: March 15, 2015

Warning – Spoilers for The Walking Dead Episode 514 “Spend.”

Tonight’s Episode 514 “Spend” of AMC’s The Walking Dead was one of the most brutal, emotionally draining episodes of the season. We’ve seen Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his group face a lot of hardships in the past; they’ve lost lots of people to both Walker attacks and deadly human foes. And their struggles to find a new home were agonizing. Now, they’re supposed to be safe in their idyllic new neighborhood in the self-sustaining Alexandria Safe Zone, with the seemingly understanding and logical Deanna Monroe (Tovah Feldshuh), a former Ohio congresswoman, leading what will be their new government.

While we’ve had to say good-bye to people before, what went on in this episode was just so disturbing on so many levels — on a gruesome one and an emotional one. The reason why Rick’s group has gotten as far as they have under the most dire circumstances is NOT because they’ve maintained a kill or be killed attitude; instead, they protect each other, work together, and consistently do the right thing whenever possible. They are heroes. Even the constantly self-professed coward, Eugene (Josh McDermitt), finds his inner strength and steps up when he has to.
