I’m writing this Friday morning, having woken up a little earlier than I would have otherwise done, in order to get this posted. Reminds me of school when I would try to wake up early to do homework 🙂
Trout is back! If you’ll remember, at the end of the last season, the Santa Barbara Police Department got a new chief, played by none other than Anthony Michael Hall (The Dead Zone, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club). While I know most of us were excited to see him, his character is kind of a dick. No, he’s really a dick. He demoted Lassiter back to a uniform and is constantly demeaning him and a lot of the force as a whole. No matter what Lassie does to try to prove himself and earn his lead detective rank back, Trout cuts him off and puts him down.
However, he almost gets his comeuppance in this ep as there is a killer on the loose going after all the a-holes who crossed his path and made him feel inferior–Trout among them. Lassie saves the day, but Trout still isn’t willing to push him any further up the ladder, though he does offer him an extra job for a little extra money.
The big news wasn’t Trout. Remember Lassie’s wife Marlowe (Kristy Swanson)? She lets Lassie vent about his bad day at work, but when she thinks he’s done, she shares her big news: they’re going to have a baby! A little baby Lassiter! I suppose I should have been expecting this, it’s about that time in a series history and Lassie is the one who’s married to a woman of child-bearing age, but either way, it should be fun 🙂
American Horror Story: Coven
Queenie is back! She may have put a bullet through her skull to kill the witch hunter (Cordelia’s husband), but she didn’t die. More than that, the bullet he shot her with was a silver bullet, and she survived. Another supreme in the running? I suppose we’ll find out soon enough.
Laveau and Fiona go to make a truce with the witch-hunting party, but they don’t particularly care for the terms. So they pretty much just kill everyone. With a little help from Fiona’s dead, ax-wielding boyfriend, of course.
Cordelia is still trying to get her sight back, and when none of her herbs are of any avail, she stabs out her eyes, hoping, believing, that without her physical sight, the gift of sight will come back to her. She wants to protect the girls, and believes that psychic ability is the only way to do that. Bravo for sacrifice, but damn!
It seems Nan and Misty are still dead, for now, but knowing Misty and her abilities, I suspect she’ll turn up sooner or later. However, Zoe has figured out how Nan died, and though she and Kyle are planning on running away together to stay safe from the witches who might do them harm–Madison and Fiona, namely–I don’t think we’ve seen the last of them, and I don’t know if Zoe will leave Nan’s death unavenged.
Spalding has returned to haunt Madame LaLaurie. He appears to be trying to help her with Laveau, but it doesn’t take long before she realizes that he was just using her. Oh, and LaLaurie is still alive. Even after having her head cut off. Queenie reattached it, quite skillfully, and brought her back to serve as the maid at the academy.
It seems that Peggy died. WTF. I figured there’d be a long hospitalization while Teddy tried to find out who had shot her, but nope, it looks like that’s the end of that subplot. Sort of abrupt, don’t you think? He’s distancing himself from Rayna and the girls as well in order to keep them safe, but I think it’s also so he can process his guilt and fear over his new wife’s death, seeing as he was the intended target, not her.
Juliette gets herself into more hot water when she talks back to some protesters. She lets loose a prime soundbite, which of course gets distorted and taken out of context for the protesters’ own purposes, and Layla has to jump in and save the day. Juliette isn’t thrilled about having to owe the girl, but the scandal started escalating too quickly and she couldn’t get it under control any other way.
Gunnar managed to talk Will off the ledge and get him back to town so he could go finish touring with Juliette. But he missed a few calls from Scarlett about possibly recording something with Kelly Clarkson. That girl is making the rounds! The Crazy Ones and now Nashville? She got a little too down-home for my taste, and sort of for her, too–I haven’t seen her a whole lot, but she doesn’t sound like a country girl when I have seen her…
Anyway, though Clarkson is totally on board with Scarlett and Gunnar’s music and wants to bring them with her to help her with her new album, Scarlett finds it too painful to sing and work with Gunnar and begs off.
Rayna is trying to focus on her new record label, and despite all the fight and sass she had getting the label away from Edgehill, she seems to have totally mellowed and started thinking like a business woman, meaning her decisions are now a lot safer and boring instead of risky and interesting.
Mike makes friends with a new guy in the lobby and after spending some time with him, he is glad he quit being shy–the guy is pretty awesome! When a couples’ dinner comes up, Mike suggests to Annie that she play along–this guy has a house in Fiji!
Though she’s hesitant at first because they always dislike one of the people in the couples friends they have, Fiji is a no-brainer. However, when their new friends are having marital problems, Annie and Mike scheme to keep them together, Parent-Trap style.
Eve wants to be edgier–for a guy, as usual–so with Leigh’s help, she adds some purple highlights and gets into some open mic thing where she pretends that her life isn’t all upper-middle-class-heaven. It works, and she gets the guy’s attention, but she can’t keep it up, and after the guy finds out she lied, he loses interest.
Ian installed high speed internet in the house, and now he doesn’t have to wait for his porn to load, allowing Graham the opportunity to walk in on him. However, Graham clearly didn’t see much because he thinks Ian is a spy. Ian has been worried about having to talk to his brother about more adult things, but now he just needs a better excuse for what he was doing.
Amber goes walkabout, driving up the coast, drinking, and running into her dad (John Corbett)–though it’s unclear if it was on purpose or not. She’s still struggling with being dumped by Ryan, and while Seth doesn’t have much experience handling a girl’s break-ups, let alone his daughter’s, he steps in and actually helps her with it a little bit.
Zeek is trying to reconnect with Camille who after finally returning home, is totally wrapped up in her new life and art friends. He makes a few strides, taking her to dinner at a nice place is a good start, but Camille reveals that she wants to take another trip–for three months this time–in a few months. Though Zeek is dismayed, I hope he decides to go with her this time. Who says no to France, after all?
Drew is trying work out what Amy wants to do, and how long she’s going to stay in his dorm while she does it, and with pressure from his other friend-with-benefits, he thinks he wants to go back to being a regular college guy. But that’s not who he is. Amy’s having a hard time, and he can help her, so that’s exactly what he’s going to do.
Because of how good he is with Max, Adam invites Hank to the guys’ poker night. It doesn’t work out that well–Hank is a little too socially awkward to participate in a friendly guys’ night where everybody else is not on the same page. Adam tries to make him feel better about it, but I don’t know that it helped that much. Hank is trying to work out some of his own stuff, and whether he has Asperger’s or some other disorder on the autism spectrum.
And Julia and Joel seem to be over. Though Julia goes to Sarah for advice and Sarah makes her feel better about it, Joel is still mad and still can’t forgive her for one little kiss outside their marriage.
Julia suspects he might be having an affair of his own with Pete and is using this opportunity to off-load some of the guilt and blame, but I don’t think so. I think they’re just in two very different places and can’t get back on the same page, like Julia explained to Adam. I don’t think that means they won’t ever be able to get back there, but maybe some time apart will help. Maybe Joel just needs some time to work through the situation on his own.
Catch-ups from last week’s Fox and ABC shows are coming, as well as those from other shows I missed this week.
Also, Enlisted, Five-0 and Dracula are new this Friday night. Plus, though I don’t recap it here, Real Time with Bill Maher returns as well on HBO! FYI: Enlisted airs in the same time block as Five-0 in my area, so make sure to check your local listings to find out what time it airs if that’s one you want to catch!
What do you think of the new posting schedule? I want to do recaps Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and throw a movie review in between somewheres, and Kevin Bacon will be back eventually, don’t worry. I’m still working on the blog migration to WordPress, so it’s cutting into my posting time, but that’ll be done soon enough (or it will be done enough soon enough), so stay tuned!
