Last week on Bates Motel, Norman (Freddie Highmore) went completely off the reservation, imagining he was speaking to his dead father, and that Norma (Vera Farmiga) was the one who killed Emma’s mother. He confronted his mother, and she was scared of him, walking around with a knife. Romero (Nestor Carbonell) decided to marry Norma. Emma’s (Olivia Cooke) transplant was a success. Norma, with the help of Romero, carted Norman off to the fancy insane asylum.

Netflix Marvel Daredevil Red Suit Season 1

Marvel’s Daredevil
Season 2 Episodes 1-3
Created by Drew Goddard
Starring Charlie Cox, Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jon Bernthal
Netflix
Premiere date: Friday, March 18th, 2016

Finally, Marvel returns to Netflix with Season 2 of Daredevil. Debuting last year, the 13-episode series, uploaded all at once on the streaming site, put to death terrible memories of the unimpressive Ben Affleck film version. The new Daredevil (Charlie Cox), is blind lawyer Matt Murdock, who along with his best buddy Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and victim turned associate Karen (Deborah Ann Woll), run a law firm to help the underprivileged in Hell’s Kitchen. Murdock was blinded as a boy and the chemicals that blinded him also enhanced his other senses to the extreme. After a season long battle with Mob “Kingpin” Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio), Murdock finally went from blindfolded ninja costume to the red suited Man With No Fear himself in the season finale. The series received rave reviews from critics and fans and with the series being on Netflix it was allowed to take its time over the 13-episodes whereas a film is forced to squeeze everything into 90-120 minutes. The show’s success launched a future Marvel Netflix empire, as Jessica Jones starring Krysten Ritter was already a huge hit last year, and there are other series slated such as Luke Cage and Iron Fist. The storyline going into season 2 of Daredevil is, who will take over Wilson Fisk’s spot as top crime boss?

Spoilers for the first three episodes below.

The Strain 211-01

The Strain
Season 2 Episode 11: “Dead End”
Directed by Phil Abraham
Written by Carlton Cuse, Regina Corrado
Created by Chuck Hogan, Guillermo del Toro
Starring Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Mia Maestro, Kevin Durand, Richard Sammel, Jonathan Hyde, Miguel Gomez, Natalie Brown, Ruta Gedmintas, Jack Kesy, Max Charles, Lizzie Brocheré, Joaquín Cosio, Rupert Penry-Jones
FX
Air Date: Sunday September 20th, 2015, 10pm

Last week on The Strain, Eph and Dutch (Corey Stoll and Ruta Gedmintas) share a flask and bond over failed romances during a sniper stakeout. They are after Eldritch Palmer (Jonathan Hyde). He shoots! He… thinks he scores! However, they get nabbed by the cops, and they actually hit Coco (Lizzie Brocheré), who is on death’s door. Palmer just kinda got her back. He demands from Eichorst (Richard Sammel) that his “partner,” The Master (Jack Kesy), restore her. The Master does oblige, but I know Palmer’s hubris is dooming him. That’s part of Eichorst’s mysterious smile that holds thousands of secrets. Dutch gets dragged out of the cell, and we now know she’s in Eichorst’s lair. Eph and the audience have 37 heart attacks, as the police station is decimated, and vampire tongues lash out through the bars perilously close (they get the cop that locked himself in with him). Nora and Fet (Mia Maestro and Kevin Durand) come to his rescue. Setrakian gets his hands on the Occido Lumen, finally, but is then knocked out.

The Strain 210-01

The Strain
Season 2 Episode 10: “The Assassin”
Directed by Phil Abraham
Written by Liz Phang
Created by Chuck Hogan, Guillermo del Toro
Starring Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Mia Maestro, Kevin Durand, Richard Sammel, Jonathan Hyde, Miguel Gomez, Natalie Brown, Ruta Gedmintas, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, Lizzie Brocheré, Joaquín Cosio, Rupert Penry-Jones
FX
Air Date: Sunday September 13th, 2015, 10pm

Last week on The Strain, the vamps have gotten into Red Hook via naive boat captain. It looks like the end for the councilwoman and pretty much everyone, but they have the motley heroes on their side. Nora (Mia Maestro) and Fet (Kevin Durand) go try to restore the UV power, but newly madeover Kelly Goodweather (Natalie Brown) follow them because they have Zach. Eph (Corey Stoll) and Dutch (Ruta Gedmintas) take up arms (seperately). Nikki ends up saving Dutch’s life, and for that sweet Fet is grateful. In a last hope rallying cry, Justine urges the people of Red Hook to take up arms, and it’s a victory for the neighborhood (even though if Nora and Fet did not get the power back on, it would have been a different story). Setrakian (David Bradley) takes off after Eichorst (Richard Sammel), with Eph on his heels. I honestly can’t believe Setrakian has not given up by now, because he never wins.

Mad Men 712 Lost Horizon

Mad Men

Starring Jon Hamm, Elizabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, John Slattery, Rich Sommer, Aaron Staton, Kiernan Shipka, Kevin Rahm
AMC
Air Date: Sunday, May 3rd, 2015, 10pm

Last week on Mad Men, the gang found out that McCann Erickson “forgot” to pay the lease and everyone has to move to their offices. Don (John Hamm) tried a last ditch effort to separate themselves, by offering to go run the California branch. At least this way, the conflict clients won’t be affected. It’s shot down immediately, with assurances that this is better for them. When they finally tell the office at the end, it’s like they already ceased to exist.
