Welcome to another Sunday of talking about the shows that made us laugh, cry, go awww and, of course, look around and wonder what in the world was happening. If it made us feel things, whether they were good, or bad, then this is where we talk about it. This is where you tell us if you agree. This is where we let it all out.
So, without further ado, here are these week’s picks:
Badass Female Character of the Week
Lyra: Cat Grant from Supergirl. I honestly didn’t know how much I missed her until she came on screen and started sassing Rhea. And honestly, 75% of all of this Season 2 drama could have been avoided if Supergirl had Cat Grant dishing out the amazing advice left and right. She’s an empowering, unstoppable, and amazing woman who inspires wherever she goes. I need her and I miss her. Please move to Vancouver Calista Flockhart!
Nora: Erin Lindsay on Chicago PD. I know, she’s my badass female character of the week almost every week, but that’s just because Sophia Bush is that amazing. This week’s episode had her in probably one of the toughest positions she’s ever been in. Not only is the FBI investigating Bunny, but Erin is offered a job in NYC because the CPD are after her. It’s a nightmare, but somehow Erin still manages to save the day. Even after all the shit Bunny has put Erin through, she still puts her mother first. This week she didn’t even have her badge and yet she helps solve the case. It’s astounding the things Erin Lindsay can do and with Sophia Bush portraying her, she’s even more badass.
Lacey: Cat Grant, Supergirl. I feel like just the mention of her name is reason enough. After a long season without the “Queen of all Media”, Ms. Grant surely came back with a bang! Who was expecting Cat to just pop out of nowhere on Air Force One? It doesn’t get more legendary than that. She immediately stood up to Queen Rhea with her usual Cat Grant snark and it had me applauding. And of course any scene she has with Kara is always amazing. I love their relationship and how much her words mean to Kara. Cat sees the best in everyone and while it may not always come across in the nicest way, you know at the end of the day, she’s going to fight to the end for the people she loves and respects. She’s fearless and fierce and is everything you want in a badass female character!
OTP of the Week
Nora: Linstead on Chicago PD. The duo broke up several episode ago when Jay needed some space, but this week Jay realizes just how much he needs Erin. He goes to Will and has him get their mother’s ring. He can’t let another day go by without having Erin by his side forever. It’s adorable and I melted into a puddle of OTP feels. Of course, Jay doesn’t get to pop the question by the time the season 4 finale draws to a close, but just knowing that ring is in his pocket is good enough for me. Linstead is one of my ultimate OTP’s and I hope they can come together next season.
Also, Olicity deciding to take step towards rekindling their romance was exactly what I needed on Arrow. I’m glad they worked out some of their issues and I’m excited to see them work their way back to each other! Also, Olitz on Scandal. Liv’s run to say goodbye to Fitz was so emotional. It was heartbreaking watching them say goodbye to each other, but such a great moment for this OTP. I’m hoping the final season will have more Olitz moments!
Lacey: Karamel, Supergirl. This week’s episode saw the super couple separated and each fighting desperately to get back to the other. Trapped on the Daxamite ship after his mother’s invasion plan was executed, Mon-El was undoubtedly finished with the pleasantries. His character development was so evident when confronting his mother about the invasion citing the Daxamite leaders as “the robbers, the liars, the killers”. Kara’s growth was evident as well when she struggled with the decision of following the President’s orders and losing her love and her best friend or being selfish for once and saving them. After an inspiring speech from Ms. Grant, Kara decided to choose what made her happy. I have loved all of Karamel’s moments but the look on their faces when they finally saw each other on the ship was everything! The love was so evident and their desperation for each other just made my heart soar! They are willing to risk everything to be together and keep each other safe. #OTA
Charles: Olicity is my pick for the week. On Arrow, we saw Oliver and Felicity take another good step in the right direction by basically agreeing to go back to dating one another. Anybody expecting them to jump right back into being engaged, that wasn’t going to happen. Instead we are going to see them build their relationship back up to that point and I love that. This time I hope we get all the big moments again but this time with any stupid baby mama crap to ruin it.
Lizzie: For what might be the last time, Captain Swan from Once Upon A Time is my pick. As Killian put it, they fought and they won – it was a long journey to get to this point, to the happily ever after. And now they get to enjoy it, to work together, to make every day part of the new adventure called life. I’m so glad they got this. I hope it’s not taken away.
Moment that made you collapse into a puddle of FEELS
Lyra: Dean Winchester laying his demons to rest, serving some truth tea, and proving how strong he is on the season 12 finale of Supernatural. He’s had this bottled up for so long, the weight of the life he was forced into. Telling his mom the truth, laying it all out, and forgiving her was his own way of moving on from that pain and accepting that this is his life, warts and all. It’s a momentous point for this character and I’ve never been prouder of him.
Nora: The ENTIRE Once Upon A Time season finale! It was SO emotional from beginning to end, especially knowing that this was the last episode for some of our favorite characters. I loved all the callbacks to season one and reliving those moments alongside Emma and Henry was emotionally draining to say the least. Also having everyone else trapped in the Enchanted Forest trying desperately to get home, especially Hook trying to find Emma. And then Hook says he fell in love with Emma while climbing the beanstalk. It was ALL TOO MUCH!! Even the ending as we see all of our favorite characters get a happy ending was so perfect and emotionally. I’m still crying thinking about them all at Granny’s.
Also, Iris recording a video for Barry in the event of her death was SO sad! I was on the floor crying. It was an emotional moment. Even though we knew Iris’ death was imminent, it was still very hard to watch! I was a wreck and hope this isn’t actually the end for Iris. Especially because I feel like The Flash is finally starting to utilize her!!
Lacey: Michael & Sara’s reunion, Prison Break. OMG! That’s all I have to say, just OMG! This reunion was 100% worth the 7 year wait! The love between these two has always been so beautiful and breathtaking. All it took was one phone call and Sara was on the other side of the world in a flash, give or take 12 hours. Even with all the time that had passed between the two of them, the moment their eyes met, it was like time stopped and no one else existed but them. When she touched his cheek and Michael grabbed her hand, I’m pretty sure I passed out. It was just perfect; from Michael asking to see pictures of their son to Sara telling him to “come back to us” after their spectacular reunion kiss. It’s what ships are made of!
Superhero of the Week
Nora: Cat Grant, Supergirl and Alex Danvers on Supergirl. Having Cat back in our lives is the greatest gift this show could’ve given me right now (alongside a firm belief that Kara can love both Lena and Mon-El in different ways). From Cat’s emotional monologue where she tells the people of National City to band together and fight back solidifies her as a superhero in her own right. Meanwhile, Supergirl flies right into the eye of the storm to save Lena and Mon-El. It’s a massive superhero moment for her and one of the best of the season. Also, you have Alex trying to buy her sister time to save those she loves while the government breathes down her neck to destroy the ship. It’s a lot. All three of these women are superheroes, there’s no question about it.
Lacey: Kara Zor-El, Supergirl. To me, Kara is the superhero every week. She overcomes so many obstacles and does so brilliantly while staying true to her integrity and morals. I think it speaks to the kind of person that she is that she would risk her life giving Rhea one last chance and not leaving her to die. She always tries to see the good in people and while that can sometimes be a hindrance, it’s what makes Kara Kara. She is so pure and is everything you want in a badass superhero! With next week’s finale almost here, I’m excited to see her continue to be the amazing, strong willed and authentic Supergirl that we all know and love!
Sarah: Cat Grant, Supergirl. Supergirl has been phenomenal this season, but I will admit letting out a squeal of joy loud enough to startle my family when Cat Grant stepped back onto the screen. This woman is as she says “tough, wise” and takes crises as it comes whether it be falling out an airplane or sassing a dangerous alien “queen” to distraction. One part of the story this show has done so well is that you don’t need superpowers to be a superhero and personally Cat Grant encompassed that this hour. Bravo and please stay I’ve missed you.
Quote of the Week
Lyra: “Though immortality may have eluded me, perhaps it’s for the best. After all, what is eternity without my beloved Agnes by my side? This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but a -” – Holden Radcliffe, Agents of Shield
Nora: “This isn’t the end. I mean, maybe of this book, but it isn’t ‘the end’ end. Now we get to see what’s next. Believing in even the possibility of a happy ending is a powerful thing, but living with that kind of belief? That’s the most powerful thing of all. That’s hope. So you ask, what now? Now we get to keep going on. We get to keep doing what we love. With the people we love. An ending isn’t happiness. Being together is.” – Mary Margaret/Snow White, Once Upon A Time
Lacey: “Let me just give you a little bit of friendly advice, Rhea. That tiara that you have on the top of your head, its overkill. Real royals, they don’t need to try that hard.” – Cat Grant, Supergirl
Charles: “There is something that I need to say to you. I love you and If something happens I need you to hear this. I, Iris Ann West take you Bartholomew Henry Allen to be my lawfully wedded husband.” – Iris West, The Flash
WTF Moment of the Week
Nora: Yes, let’s send the entire team inside a burning building on Chicago Fire and then leave most of their fates up in the air! How am I supposed to wait until September? Also, Erin getting a new job and possibly moving to NYC on Chicago PD!!! If you take her away from me (and Jay) I will NEVER forgive you!
Also how dare you actually kill Iris. I’m hoping this isn’t true, but it was still SO painful to watch!
Lacey: Iris’ death, The Flash. Look, I know this has been the big event this season and it’s been foreshadowed from the start, but I truly did not believe that they would actually kill her!! I was shocked. Like jaw on the floor, remote in hand, just staring for a good ten minutes. Not to mention the song that just added insult to injury. Barry was so broken and Joe shattered my heart. I’m definitely not ready for next week. I hope that this will be fixed because poor WestAllen. Still in shock! (Where was Julian?)
Charles : The very last scene of the Once Upon A Time finale. Some little girl walks to a apartment where it’s opened by an adult Henry Mills! Also the girl is his daughter? I wish this scene hadn’t happened just cause we had a perfect finale till that moment. And now with most of the cast gone and a reboot basically happening, this show feels like it is only Once Upon A Time in name only.
