Hope Tarr shares the details on last night's episode of Scandal.
Meagan Burgad gets us up to date on the latest from Mindy and company in her recap of The Mindy Project.
Last week’s episode was my favorite of the season to date. The highly adrenalized drama remained true to its reputation. The shocking developments were just a precursor for what’s to come in the final episodes. This week’s episode, titled “Suits of Woe,” has taken SAMCRO even further down the dark road. Hold on to your hats — these final episodes must not be missed. Jax is shown sitting in Abel’s room, then the scene cuts to Gemma talking to herself again. Juice is also shown talking to himself, and Chibbs is shown leaving the Sheriff while she sleeps. Wendy tells Jax that when she left rehab Juice was staying in her apartment. Jax continues to question Wendy about why Juice was in her apartment and who knew about Juice. She tells him just Unser. Wendy… Continue
Alyssa Cole gives us the scoop on what happened last night on Sleepy Hollow. Spoiler alert!
I apologize in advance for the extra-long recap but so much happened in this week’s episode, there was a lot of tying up of loose threads. So this week’s promos promised that we would get the story of Lila’s affair with Sam straight from the sorority girl’s mouth. Well, we did and we didn’t. I don’t know about you but I thought the flashbacks in this episode for the most part were a distinct let down. Yes, we got to know a little bit more about Lila’s relationship with Rebecca (the sorority girl and the drug dealer, hanging out on the roof and sharing confidences.) See, Lila was having a hard time with the whole virginity pact with Griffin. She worried that if she waited too long to have sex, it wouldn’t fit. A legitimate… Continue

Alyssa Cole recaps the latest episode of Sleepy Hollow...
Have you recovered yet from last week's devastating episode? This week, titled "Faith and Despondency,” we are shown a different side of the characters: love seems to be in the air. Hold onto your seats with only three episodes remaining, we are still in full gear.
Elizabeth K. Mahon gives us the scoop on the latest episode of How to Get Away With Murder.
This week’s episode, “Baby Made a Mess,” opens with Olivia (Kerry Washington) tucked into bed, wearing her signature white silk robe and sipping her equally signature glass of red wine. Her cell phone dings—Fitz’s signature ringtone.
Hooray! After a short but painful break The Mindy Project is back. Danny is waiting for Mindy outside the movie theater so they can see The Godfather II. He texts asking where she’s at. Mindy assures him she’s in a cab while she’s actually still putting makeup on. They continue to go back and forth until Mindy shows up so late the movie is sold out. Danny is super upset. At work the next day, Mindy shows up long after she should have been at the office. Danny is upset Mindy is late. As being late is part of her charm Mindy doesn’t apologize. Later, Dr. Fishman comes to visit Danny in his office. After Danny tried to kill himself, Dr. Fishman wants Danny to think about going to a mental health seminar. Danny tells… Continue
Last week was all about reflection for Jax. All of his actions were under a microscope for the duration. In this week’s episode titled “What a Piece of Work Is Man,” everything seems to move in fast forward. Jax is determined to see everything through until the end. This super-extended episode was filled with even more unexpected drama and revelations. The motors are still revved, and there is a lot more to come before the last ride. We open with Jax laying in bed with Abel. Juice is being transported to Stockton prison. Jax, Gemma, and the boys are sitting around the breakfast table. Jax decides to keep Abel close by. Wendy doesn’t agree. Gemma tells her that if she wants to help Abel that she has to do it Jax’s way. Then the scene… Continue
We open with what is presumably a flashback: Katrina and Ichabod are in bed, serenaded by the sweet sounds of neighing horses as they try to get morning loving before he leaves for battle. No, instead of getting it on, they talk about how cool their future children will be. We soon see this isn’t a flashback, but a nightmare, when the jincan spider (shout out to Amanda for hooking me up with Jincan/Gu info on Twitter!) crawls out of Ichabod’s mouth and Katrina wakes up screaming. We cut to our devoted Witnesses exorcising their electoral duty at a polling center. Ichabod rants about how he fought for the right to vote and now Americans are too lazy to do it. Abbie calls him out on, bringing up the fact that she wouldn’t have been… Continue
This week’s episode shines the spotlight on everyone’s favorite jerk Asher. If you’ve been dying to learn more about the loveable frat boy, this episode is for you. If you think that he’s an entitled asshole, you might want to skip this one. In the flash-forward, we see Asher getting ready for Bonfire Night, goofily dancing around his apartment, until he realizes the immunity idol is gone. He suspects Michaela of stealing it and storms over to Annalise’s house to confront her. Again we see the others hiding from Asher, although Laurel wants to bring him into their circle of doom. Wes and Rebecca veto that notion. Michaela sends him a text telling him that she’s at the library. Later on, as they are driving to find a gas station, Connor almost hits Asher with… Continue
This week’s episode, “An Innocent Man,” opens with Olivia (Kerry Washington) swimming laps in her now familiar white one-piece in her equally familiar indoor pool, a sexy montage of memories of lovemaking with Jake (Scott Foley) and then Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and then Jake again firing off in her head. Her father, Rowan Pope AKA Command (Joe Morton) stands poolside, bringing her “torn between two lovers” reverie to an abrupt end. Olivia awakens from the dream, screaming. Reality is far worse than any love triangle. Jake is still in custody in the bowels of The Pentagon, being interrogated for orchestrating the killing of Jerry, the President’s teenage son. (In reality, Rowan ordered the hit and then framed Jake). Former gladiator and restored BFF, Abby (Darby Stanchfield) has spent the night at Olivia’s, and she rushes… Continue
If last week’s episode was any indication of where the season is headed, then my nerves are going to be shot by the series end. I’m just hoping for the club to receive some good karma, and soon. In episode, eight titled “The Separation Of Crows,” we are thrown right into the drama of it all. Hold on to your seats — this one is a doozy. The episode opens somberly with Jax sitting on the roof of the compound. Gemma is still at the cabin. Wendy is shown with the kids. Juice tells a prison guard, he is ready to talk, and Bobby; poor Bobby is shown alive with a bandage over his eye. Chibbs finds Jax on the roof contemplating his options regarding August Marks actions against the club. Chibbs acts as a… Continue
In the last episode, Ichabod had to deal with the ex from Hell (or one of its adjacent circles) and confront the fact that his wife has straight-up lied to him on several fronts, so it makes sense that we open with Abbie and Ichabod getting hot and sweaty together: they’re doing yoga. She’s trying to help him to find some inner peace because he’s been anxious since his argument with Katrina. He says he’s fine, but Abbie encourages him to just talk about his feelings, and yoga gives way to an impromptu therapy session in which Ichabod reveals he’s disappointed and hurt and doesn’t know if he can fully trust Katrina anymore. They end up at a bar, because drinking a beer is much easier than standing on your head, when a fight breaks… Continue
Annalise and her team defends a cop’s son who shot his father in order to protect his battered mother. Annalise lectures that this kind of emotional case hinges on jury selection. Get the right jury, and they have a good chance. They need all the luck they can get especially once the DA manages to get the allegations of abuse thrown out of court. Laurel keeps a handy dandy chart listing which way she thinks a particular jury is leaning. I’m surprised that she didn’t have a PowerPoint flow chart, complete with statistical probability. But when it looks like they don’t have enough jurors on their side, despite Connor sexting one juror nick-named ‘The Lumberjack’ (Will there ever be a case that doesn’t involve Connor’s sex life?) and exposing his pro-police leanings, Laurel decides to… Continue
If you have been keeping up with this season you know that things have been less than peaceful. The death toll alone will make your head spin. In this episode, titled “Greensleeves,” we find that survival of some characters will come at a high price. The ride may be ending for some, but for others it’s a clear open road. The episode opens with Jax giving Juice back his cut. Juice tells Jax he’s sorry. They are on the side of the road in the dessert, and shown in writing on the side of a mountain is JT and his date of Jax’s Father’s death. Gemma tells Wendy that the club has Juice. Wendy asks if Gemma thinks Juice told Jax that they helped him. Wendy says she’s not running anymore. Even though Gemma suggests… Continue
In the last few episodes, Abbie and Ichabod have had to deal with a Franklinstein’s monster (still funny, guys) and a Pied Piper, as well as a nasty inner demon transmitted via coin. Tonight’s episode dips into folkloric monsters again, and brings a blast from Ichabod’s past.
“Why is your penis on a dead girl’s phone?” ABC promised that Viola Davis’ last nine words would be a shocker and they were. Perhaps not as shocking as “Which one you bitches is my mother?” (From the miniseries LACE), but ‘Murder’ certainly is not playing around. This show is burning through plot faster than I go through a bag of Lay’s potato chips. Seriously this show just got a full-pickup for the season, so we are in for a hell of a ride if the writers keep up the pace they’ve already set. This week’s episode not only contained some seriously hot sex, but also a suicide, so many betrayals, sex tapes, people freaking out, and the gruesome dismemberment of a corpse. The episode opens as usual with a flash forward to the night… Continue
Mindy and Danny are coming back from a wedding. Mindy is driving since Danny had one two many. A cop pulls them over but Mindy isn’t worried because she’s never gotten a ticket. When the police officer approaches the car Mindy first tries lying, then starts crying to get her way out of the ticket. The officer lets her go because she reminds him of his “demented aunt.” Mindy thinks she should get a reward for getting out of a ticket. Cut to the cop coming back to the car to check if they’re okay because their car has been parked for quiet a while. Judging by Mindy’s smile and her underwear around Danny’s neck I’d say they’re more than fine. At the office, Peter is upset that his friend had to drop out of… Continue
Can Sons Of Anarchy twist you up anymore? Each episode in this final season keeps on hitting us with more and more punches. What can possibly happen next? This week’s episode,”Smoke Em If YouGot Em,” proves that they are just getting started, and the final ride is in full gear. We open with Gemma walking down the side of the road. Apparently, she survived the assassination attempt. Jax and the Sons are shown looking at the destroyed Diosa. They all take a drink, and Jax says, “sorry ladies we made it right.” Wendy is shown talking to Bobby. Wendy asks what will happen now. Wendy tells Bobby he loves Jax. Bobby responds with “we all do.” Wendy admits to Bobby that she still loves Jax. Nero arrives and asks what they will do now. They… Continue
This week, we have a great IchAbbie-centric episode. Yes, Hawley, Henry, and Irving make appearances, but there is no focus on Katrina and Headless, or the new sheriff in town, or Abbie and Jenny’s past and present relationship. The storyline focuses on two buds just hanging: listening to world music, hiking in the woods, having coffee dates…okay, this is Sleepy Hollow, so things aren’t that simple, but the bulk of the story focuses on our duo, with the Apocalypse serving as a backdrop after dominating the first three episodes. The show starts off with a young girl walking out of a big house into the misty woods, but then cuts to something a bit more fun—Ichabod is learning to drive! After Abbie gives him a pep talk, he’s ready to roll: “Let us release our… Continue
The show flashes forward to the Bonfire Night that will never die. Only this time we get to see what happened before the Circle of Four made their pact to destroy the body. We see Annalise’s office and poor Sam’s dead body bleeding all over the expensive rug. Wes is comforting damsel in distress Rebecca but Michaela is just losing it. Girlfriend is over in a corner whimpering like a tiny child. Connor is having none of her behavior but Laurel tries to calm her down. Can we just press pause for a moment here to discuss the fact that while these law students may not have committed murder, they are definitely accessories what with the destroying of evidence and lying to law enforcement? AND IT IS ONLY THE FIRST SEMESTER PEOPLE! We flashback to… Continue
Just when I thought Scandal couldn’t possibly get anymore twisty, I watched last night’s episode and well… W-O-W! The episode opens with newcomer cast member, RNC chairperson, Lizzie Bear (Portia de Rossi) doing kid drop off duty at school—and rendezvousing with the head of a prominent gun lobbying group. (Can we say multi-tasking!) Also dropping off his kids, he’s none too happy about their Republican president’s sudden championing of gun control legislation. “Does your gun lobbyist badge ever come off?” she asks with a mocking smile. He assures her that these days he sleeps with it on. In a legal countermove, the pro-gun faction has engineered an appeal of the new legislation in the mostly conservative Fourth Circuit Court. Still, the outcome is less than certain. Judge Sparks, who in the past has waffled between… Continue
Mindy and Danny are loving their relationship. Danny is more romantic every day, giving Mindy extra apple pie, a beautiful necklace and remembering her nose hair trimmer. Just little surprises to let her know he cares. Except sometimes surprises aren’t so great. Like when during sex your boyfriend tries to get to fifth base, aka trying the backdoor, aka the ultimate form of birth control, aka visiting Margaret (okay that last one may be made up but you get the picture). Danny insists it “just slipped.” But Mindy isn’t having it. At the office, Peter and Tamra are having breakfast. Dr. Reed comes in and tries to sit at their table. Tamra tells him no way is that happening. Everyone in the office is mad at Dr. Reed for stealing Lauren from Peter. #teampeter Morgan… Continue
This season is unforgettable so far. My head is still spinning from last week’s episode. I’m not sure if my heart can handle an entire season. As a dedicated fan I’ll try: the benefits outweigh the latter. With the latest episode, titled “Some Strange Eruption,” things get even bumpier. We open with Jax smoking a cigarette and taking in the Diosa aftermath. Nero asks Jax why Linn would go so far. Jax tells him he doesn’t have a reason. Nero agrees to tell Boraski what happened. Gemma is with Juice when Happy calls to tell her what happened at Diosa. Gemma tells Juice they will leave in the morning. Chibbs is with the Sheriff, both wearing towels one can only assume they had sex; he receives a call and tells her he has to go,… Continue
This week in Sleepy Hollow our characters encounter money woes, trust issues, evil lawyers, and a new, scruffalicious guy in town. All caught up on your previous recaps? Okay, let’s go! The show kicks off with Henry Parrish painting a model of the Tarrytown Psychiatric Hospital—Hey, even Horsemen of the Apocalypse need a hobby, folks. Cut to the actual hospital, where Ichabod and Abbie try to visit Irving but are informed that they’ve been barred from visitation by Irving’s lawyer, a.k.a., War. Apparently, Henry’s interaction with Irving in the last episode wasn’t entirely a ruse—he’s hung up his shingle as an attorney! (“If you’re in so much trouble that you’re willing to hand over your soul, call 1-800-SIN-EATER.”) They discover Henry is representing their friend, and instead of blowing the place open and getting Irving… Continue
This action-packed episode kicks right off with Killian drinking the poison potion Eva’s people gave him to help him get back to Freya. This potion has to kill him, and mourning Killian has no idea Freya is still alive. This is a powerful brew and it immediately hits Killian like a ton of bricks. In his stupor, he sees Freya and she realizes what he’s done and insists she’s alive, they will be together and he needs to contact Ingrid immediately if not sooner and tell her to use the lotus root elixir to lessen the effects of Killian’s poison potion. Killian is able to call Ingrid; she arrives just in time to give him some of the elixir. She leaves the bottle of elixir with instructions to take it every fifteen minutes and heads… Continue
