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: Rosita from Wynonna Earp. Now, maybe to other people she didn’t do something “badass”. She wasn’t out in the field kicking ass and taking names. She was doing something even harder…SOCIALIZING! The Earp crew is a hard one to get to know and she put her best foot forward to A) Kick that trope in the mouth that says a lover of a baby daddy can’t be friends with the baby momma and B) know the other women she’s protecting this town with.
Chloe: Yara Greyjoy on Game of Thrones. She may have been captured, but she put up a hell of a fight – and she’ll always be a badass in my book. Here’s hoping that Yara’s days on the high seas fighting for the Khaleesi aren’t over yet.
Lizzie: Rosaline Capulet, on Still Star-Crossed, for fighting till the end, for not giving up, and for giving into love, even after she’d been hurt before – which can sometimes be the hardest thing in the world.
OTP of the Week
Lyra: Wayhaught on Wynonna Earp. What Nicole did came from a place of love and protection. I can’t blame her for trying to spare Waverly the pain of knowing she wasn’t an Earp. And I can’t blame Waverly for being upset with Nicole for trying to keep this from her. That’s why they’re my OTP of the Week. It’s real drama meant to develop their relationship and make into something stronger!
Chloe: Kadena (Kat and Adena) on The Bold Type. I’m obsessed with the show, and one reason is this ship – two women of different races and backgrounds, and even sexualities, with a relationship that is so beautifully explored and nuanced. Kat and Adena’s differences are shown in such a real light – there are issues without them becoming capital-I “Issues,” if you know what I mean. But watching what draws them together and how well-matched they are is what truly makes Kadena a delight. (That kiss!!)
Lizzie: Dude, Grey Worm and Missandei gave me feels I wasn’t even sure I could HAVE during Game of Thrones. The utter tenderness and love that GOT managed to show in that scene was …mind blowing, it truly was.
Moment that made you collapse into a puddle of FEELS
Lyra: Wynonna dying and thinking of how to protect her sister in her final moments on Wynonna Earp. Even in a vision quest Wynonna thought of her sister. It didn’t matter to her that she wasn’t blood. Waverly was her family and she was going to do anything to protect her. So she spoke Waverly’s name when Bobo asked for it and sealed her sister’s fate, giving her a protector when she couldn’t be there. That’s love!
Lariel: Grey Worm and Missandei. The way she wants to accept him just as he is… my heart!
Chloe: Pretty much the entirety of Game of Thrones, but the moment that really hit me was when Arya found out that Jon Snow had retaken Winterfell as the King in the North. We’ve watched Arya strip away so much of her identity and humanity while she trained with the Faceless Men, so seeing her genuine shock at the (for once) happy news of her family was a big step toward Arya reclaiming that part of herself. The prospect of a Stark family reunion is always an exciting (and emotional) one.
Danielle: Aaron and Callie’s first date was every bit of awkward, confusing, adorable and more!! It was even more cute to see them have a small misunderstanding over the movie they saw. Apparently, The Fast and the Furious does not describe Callie’s crazy life! Whoops!
Lizzie: I’m with Chloe here, though my favorite moment was Sansa realizing that Jon trusted her with everything, with the North, with protecting their people, their home …these two have come a long way and they’ve had their ups and downs, but their relationship has been a highlight for me the past few seasons.
Superhero of the Week
Lariel: Does a moment NOT on screen count? Because for me it’s Stephen Amell at SDCC, giving his Arrow necklace to a young fan with cancer. This is the Comic-Con moment that will stay with me forever, and I want to see little Sara there next year.
Chloe: One Jacqueline Carlyle on The Bold Type. A boss who will bail you out of jail and has endlessly wonderful pep talks? It can’t get much better than that.
Danielle: Gunnar on this week’s Nashville was so brave to stand up to his awful, cranky grandmother. She may have raised him after his parents died, but he’s grown into a fine, young man without her. It was interesting but also heartbreaking to see parts of his childhood.
Quote of the Week
Lyra: “Tacos are tasty. Tacos are tasty!” – Wynonna Earp on Wynonna Earp
Lariel: I’m afraid the news is outdoing script writers these days! Is it possible that Rod Serling is managing the script these days?
Brittany: When Arya said “That’s not you” to Nymeria. She knew Nymeria needed to run free like she did. Also a great callback to a moment she had with Ned in season 1. I guess this all could have been my “puddle of FEELS” moment too!
Chloe: “You’re a dragon. Be a dragon.” Olenna Tyrell (Game of Thrones) gives Daenerys the advice she needs to hear and gives me a new mantra.
Danielle: “Just because nobody hit you doesn’t mean you don’t have scars.” – Kelly Walker, to Gunnar, Nashville
Lizzie: “I’m not here to be Queen of the Ashes.” – Daenerys, Game of Thrones.
WTF Moment of the Week
Lyra: The return of Bobo on Wynonna Earp. To be quite honest…I forgot about Bobo. The first half of the season has been amazing and the monsters this show has introduced has made me forget about the revenants entirely. Then Bobo comes back like a crazy popsicle from hell with a white patch on his beard. He’s going to be a crazy (returning) addition to an already crazy show!
Lariel: The last minutes of Game of Thrones. As the credits rolled, I sat there saying, “Holy crap!” over and over again. With that episode, there went one of the items on my “Things We’re Looking Forward To” list! But now I wanna know… who told Euron where to find Yara’s fleet?
Chloe: A clever (but oh-so-painful) bit of editing on Game of Thrones. Let’s just agree that we never need to see grayscale and an oozing gravy pie in the same scene transition again.
Lizzie: I’m gonna go with Lariel on this one – the ending of Game of Thrones was …something, especially Theon abandoning Theon and becoming Reek again. You could SEE it in his face, which was a great bit of acting for Alfie Allen and just made me hate Theon even more, which I didn’t even think was possible.
