ONCE UPON A TIME: Season 4, Episode 16

For those who are fans of The Little Mermaid, our tale begins with the sound of a beautiful woman singing; a tune very similar to that of which Ariel sings when she is giving her voice to Ursula in the famous Disney animated movie. Captain Hook is harping on his men to get them back to Neverland, Smee at the ships helm. Then Hook and his men stop their tasks after hearing that stunning voice, but then the sound abruptly ends before they crash into a grouping of rocks. Smee asks the Captain what they heard. His answer, “The most dangerous creature in all the seas; a mermaid.”

SCANDAL: Season 4, Episode 14

Shonda Rhimes is notorious for pulling stories from the headlines. Last night’s episode, “The Lawn Chair,” was an emotional heart-stopper. It was an almost too soon but definitely necessary Ferguson-esque story. An unarmed black teenaged boy was shot in the street by a white cop on his beat in an impoverished neighborhood just minutes from the White House. The teen’s father, excellently portrayed by veteran actor, Courtney B. Vance shows up on the scene, shot gun in hand, demanding justice for his son. Olivia Pope is there to diffuse the situation for the DC Police Department.

SLEEPY HOLLOW, Season Finale

The show opens with a nice war montage: shots being prepared, guns being loaded. An epic Revolutionary War fight scene plays out, with Ichabod being a bad ass and busting Redcoats in the face as he searches for the Hessian with a mark on his hand. This is somewhat familiar, as it’s a throwback to the shows first episode. A lot of this final episode of the season (and perhaps of the series?) goes back to the original well, both as a love letter to the fans and as a way of starting from scratch...
