We watch a lot of TV, in case all the reviews, interviews, news, and features didn’t give you a clue (wink, wink), so we decided to come together once a week to highlight all those great moments that our favorite shows give us throughout the week. In Fangirlish Feels of the Week, there are five categories and many thoughts! Ready?
Here we go!
Badass Character of the Week
Raquel: Angela in The Rookie’s last episode! She showed that she is a badass since always, not only because of the way she went all out to finish off Elijah but also because she is capable of everything to keep her family safe, no matter what. What a QUEEN!
Ashley: Dr. Beverly Crusher in Star Trek: Picard. We all know that Dr. Crusher is awesome, but we usually see her wielding a tricorder rather than a phaser rifle, but watching her get down to business in the season opener “The Next Generation” was awesome.
Erin: I’ve been catching up on FBI: International, because I love the show. This week, Europol Agent Katrin Jaeger returned to work with the fly team and she had to face some feelings that she didn’t think she’d have to face. She showed that her vulnerability is her strength and that no matter what happens on the road that she’s on, she’s going to make it through. She’s a great character that I have missed, so I was happy to see her on the episode.
OTP of the Week
Raquel: I have to go back to The Rookie’s last episode here. Angela and Wes were together saving their family so they’re my OTP this week. And the way that, even though it all turned out to be a mess, the two of them were just there, holding hands, together, and willing to do anything to keep their little one and the baby to come safe… that made magic for me.
Liv: Spencer and Alex in 1923. I finally caught up with the show and they are my favorite couple. I’m so glad they survived the tugboat capsizing because their one -liners about how much they love each other is everything. Also, getting married at the end of this week’s episode was exactly what viewers needed after being forced to wait a whole week to see if they survive.
Rachel: For me, it’s William and Eliza from Miss Scarlet and the Duke. The season three finale gave shippers the most romantic scene between them so far…while he’s technically dating someone else! (See my “puddle of feels” moment for more on that.) If that doesn’t prove they are endgame, I don’t know what does. The chemistry between Kate Phillips and Stuart Martin was on full display in this scene too. The rest of the season hasn’t been easy for shippers of this couple, so this episode felt like turning a corner back to the right direction.
Erin: For me, it’s gotta be and will always be Gabriela and Bode in Fire Country. I live with the firm belief that you don’t choose the ship, it chooses you and these two are everything. It doesn’t matter what happens, the are supportive of each other and have a connection one can’t explain. LOVE THEM.
Moment that made you collapse into a puddle of FEELS
Raquel: In the last episode of The Good Doctor, Glassy contemplating the ruins of his house and his old life with Shaun and Lea, realizing that his memories will never go away but that his life and his family are now with the two of them and not in those crumbling walls. I cried.
Ashley: Meeting Sidney La Forge in Star Trek: Picard 3×01 “The Next Generation.” She shares her father’s curiosity and optimism, which makes me incredibly happy. I smile so much whenever she’s on screen. I can’t wait to see more of her in this season!
Rachel: The scene in the jewelry store between William and Eliza on Miss Scarlet and the Duke! It was so romantic. The two Victorian London detectives are undercover pretending to be an engaged couple and Eliza prompts William to tell the story of how he proposed. The story he makes up…SWOON!!! This is the kind of scene that OTPs are made of.
Erin: I know that this is going to sound corny, but the moment that made me collapse into a puddle was the release of the Love Again trailer. Like, I can’t wait for this movie, but watching the trailer made me both laugh and cry, and I can admit it.
Quote of the Week
Raquel: “I’m willing to do anything to protect my family” Angela to Elijah, The Rookie.
Liv: “In my heart, I know it was wrong to take you. Everything that happened up to now was a sign, a warning. Elephant, the lions, the shipwreck. It was all the universe tellin’ me to put you back. I’m just too f****n’ selfish to do it. My dream, my dream is that the universe was wrong, and you’re mine to keep.” Spencer to Alex in 1923.
WTF Moment of the Week
Raquel: Carter’s ex-wife pretending to have full custody of the kids and taking them away for no reason in The Rookie: Feds.
Ashley: That final scene in Star Trek: Picard 3×01 “The Next Generation” had me screaming at the TV! I couldn’t believe I was seeing half a building being teleported away and then dropped right next to it. That was positively nuts.
Erin: Can I just say everything Chicago P.D. is WTF? I hate Voight and them trying to make his redeemable or decent is a joke.
