The Originals Review: Haunter of Ruins (Season 4 Episode 3)

The Originals Season 4 Episode 3
As predicted, the Mikaelsons got their one day of meditation. Now it’s back to the real world with a soul sucking mystical force that is intent on having his sacrifices, including Hope, at any price.

For an episode where there wasn’t much action, a lot of premise, intent, and future narratives were established on The Originals Season 4 Episode 3. I’m not going to tip-toe around it. I cringed when Hope began to describe “bad” things Klaus would protect her from. Adjectives like “mean, selfish, and angry” sounded very pre-Hope Klaus reminiscent. Klaus’s widening eyes showed that he connected the similarities as well, and the desperate way he grabbed and held her also shows everything in him wants to stop being that way for his daughter.

Amaya Needs to Remain on ‘Legends of Tomorrow’

Legends of Tomorrow
Amaya Jiwe, a member of the Justice Society of America from the 1940s, was killed off by Leonard Snart in the Season 2 penultimate episode that left the characters stranded in Doomworld. With her death comes the death of her granddaughter, Mari, who inherited her Vixen totem and defends the streets of Detroit.

Legends of Tomorrow killed off their newest team addition, Amaya, who joined the team to avenge the death of Rex Tyler, her partner on the Justice Society of America. She didn’t complete that mission, and now the JSA is destroyed as their team was stranded throughout time by Rip Hunter to defend the Spear of Destiny. Ultimately, it was useless, seeing as Thawne got the staff and created his Doomworld reality. Though she died, her death needs to be corrected, and Amaya needs to stay.

Supergirl Review: Distant Sun (Season 2 Episode 17)

Supergirl Season 2 Episode 17
Supergirl and Mon-El reunited on The Flash Season 3 Episode 17, “Duet,” where his kiss brought Kara out of the Music Meister’s musical coma. Their reunion came with a cost: Kara’s life was suddenly placed in the hands of alien bounty hunters, who wanted her dead for a reward. Who hired these hunters? Who wants Kara dead?

On Supergirl Season 2 Episode 17, “Distant Sun,” Kara’s life is given a bounty, and the culprit behind this is none other than her boyfriend’s mother: Rhea of Daxam. The Queen wants Kara dead so her son will return, willingly, to lead the life his parents want him to as the next King of Daxam to bring their people back together under new leadership.

The Flash Review: Abra Kadabra (Season 3 Episode 18)

The Flash Season 3 Episode 18
The Flash (Grant Gustin) battles Abra Kadabra (guest star David Dastmalchian), a villain from Earth-19, who makes him a tempting offer – release him and Abra Kadabra will reveal Savitar’s true identity. Desperate to save Iris (Candice Patton), Barry considers taking the deal but Gypsy (guest star Jessica Camacho) breaches in to capture the villain for her own reasons and during the melee, Abra Kadabra manages to escape.

The Flash Season 3 Episode 18 “Abra Kadabra,” was both enjoyable and frustrating at the same time. The positives of the episode come from the cast, once again giving strong performances during some emotional scenes and the moral dilemmas several of the characters faced.

Fresh off of the action-packed rescue mission, on The Originals Season 4 Episode 3, Klaus demands one day alone with his daughter without dealing with any life or death situations or Mikaelson enemies. However, it doesn’t seem like he’ll be given his wish given that the new big bad now has his sights on Hope.

On The Originals Season 4 Episode 3, “Haunter of Ruins,” seems the family will use the day to meditate on their lives and gauge their expectations for their futures. Rebekah’s answer will probably be to find love somewhere far away from drama where she can be happy. Her dreams have always been simple; they’ve just been hard to achieve due Klaus’s previous obsession with never being alone. Now that he will have hope to (hopefully) keep him well-adjusted Rebekah just might get her chance.

[WATCH] First Minute of Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 11

Pretty Little Liars Season 7
After the killer Pretty Little Liars mid-season finale, the girls are finally returning on April 18th for their final ten episodes. The most dramatic cliffhanger, Spencer being shot, has partially been overshadowed by the reveal that Mary Drake is her mother, mostly because we know that Spencer will survive her gunshot wound.

Pretty Little Liars Season 7 returns soon, and we’re still reeling from the last episode. It’s been months; we’ve waited months to see how this story will end, and now the conclusion begins.

The Originals Review: No Quarter (Season 4 Episode 2)

The Originals Season 4 Episode 2
Has there ever been a war where both battling sides are victors in the end? The Originals show us just how a war like that would pan out in episode 2, “No Quarter.” The Mikaelsons won their brother back, Marcel maintained his status as King, and New Orleans remained relatively peaceful before the real battle begins.

The Originals Season 4 Episode 2, “No Quarter,” did not disappoint as we saw The Mikaelsons and Marcel finally come head to head for their spoils. My prediction of the events that would transpire was almost correct. Rebekah first tried to manipulate Marcel by using their love for each other, Elijah tried his hand at an apology and instead tried to appeal to Marcel’s logic, Hayley tried to appeal to his ethical principles by pulling the “orphaned Hope” card, and Kol and Freya acted as the muscle of the whole expedition.

It looks like The Flash Season 3 Episode 18, “Abra Kadabra,” will take the series back to a more serious tone after last week’s light and fun crossover. The main plot with Savitar comes back as a new villain claims to know the evil speedster’s identity and will reveal it to Barry – under the condition that he release him.

The official trailer for the Justice League was revealed today, and it looks like we’re in for a treat. The movie seems to carry the same dark undertones of Batman vs. Superman, but with the group coming together, it looks more likely for the possibility of humor to break through the darkness.

The Justice League trailer showed some of our favorite DC superheroes coming together as a team when “the others” arrive, but we’re left with one question: where’s Superman?

With Mon-El’s true background revealed after his parents showed up on Earth, his relationship with Kara is on the rocks. While he’s set on staying with Kara, they’re willing to do anything to bring Mon-El back with them and make him the King of Daxam to reunite their people.

On Supergirl Season 2 Episode 17, “Distant Sun,” Kara is forced to defend herself when a bounty is put on her head. The question is, who put out the bounty? Was it Lillian Luthor trying to get the aliens of National City to take out Cadmus’ biggest threat for them? Or could it have been Mon-El’s parents, who see that she’s the main thing tying him to Earth and keeping him from returning to Daxam.
