Trout is outta there!!! As much as I love Anthony Michael Hall, he really threw a wrench into the SBPD groove, and I’ll be glad to see things get back to normal just a little bit, or the SBPD version of normal, anyway.
Trout mishandles a hostage situation involving Woody, the coroner, and a guy with a gun called Cyrus Polk (played by Peter Stormare whom you’ll remember from Fargo, The Big Lebowski, and the pilot episode of Rake, if you can remember that far back :P). Cyrus claims he was framed for the murder of the newest body on Woody’s table, and wants Woody to do the autopsy and prove his innocence.
Trout wants to take a more offensive plan, while O’Hara and Lassie want to infiltrate the situation and keep Woody safe. Shawn and Gus want to help out too, and Trout allows them to, but it’s clear who’s happier about the arrangement.
After the situation is resolved, Trout calls Lassie, O’Hara, Shawn and Gus in to fire them, but just as he does, he gets a phone call firing him for botching the hostage situation. The others get to keep their jobs, and all is right in the universe!
I’m not sure if this means the chief is coming back, but I sure hope so! Or else, I hope somebody else awesome and more open to psychic detectives is brought it. That’d be fun. And if that’s the case, it had better be another woman!
American Horror Story: Coven – Finale
The girls start performing the seven wonders, and Misty is the first to tap out during the astral projection segment. She can’t escape the dream world (or perhaps, hell) she’s in, and doesn’t make it back to her body in time, causing her to die right there on the floor.
Zoe ends up impaled on a spike on the garden wall during the teleportation exercise, and Madison refuses to bring her back on general principle–she lost fair and square. However, when Madison fails the psychic portion, she offers to bring Zoe back as a way to keep going.
However, that’s not how it works. Either you can do all seven of the wonders, or you can’t. She starts bitching that the game is rigged, and heads to her room to go back to LA. Kyle is none too pleased about her not bringing Zoe back, and he chokes her to death. With ghost Spalding there to help, it’s an easy clean-up.
Midway through the seven wonders, Myrtle suggests that Cordelia participate in the competition. She has “royal” blood, being Fiona’s daughter, and Myrtle always thought that she was held back from her true potential because of Fiona’s criticisms.
As it turns out, Cordelia is able to bring Zoe back, and she is the only one who can do all seven wonders. New supreme!
It wrapped up in an interesting way. Fiona is really dying now, having plotted with the ax man not to really die yet, and as she tries to get Cordelia’s help, Cordelia simply tries to help her not to fear her passing. However, Fiona ends up in her worst version of hell, waking up every day to a simple life on a farm with the ax man, who’s turned abusive, and a house that always smells of fish.
Cordelia as the new supreme outs the coven to the world on a television interview, and invites all young girls who think they might be witches to come down to New Orleans and check out the academy. It’s a new home, a place where they can fit in with others like themselves. Zoe and Queenie are right there at her side, totally happy to oblige the new supreme and completely unjealous of her power and her authority.
The only loose end is Myrtle, who demands that Cordelia burn her at the stake again for her crimes, to assert her authority and establish that nobody is free from the rules that the witches are to live by. I missed her last words, dammit, but I’m sure someone out there knows.
I’m glad the season didn’t end in too much bloodshed, and it was actually a pretty fitting ending, if a little anti-climactic in that things at the academy just seemed a little too hunky-dory for my taste. I still had one question lingering–if Cordelia was the new supreme all along, why wasn’t any of her get-pregnant magic working? Maybe her witch-hunter husband did something to counteract it? Maybe Fiona did? Either I missed that, or the writers did.
Anyway, though the Asylum season started out great, and this one ended up pretty great, I still can’t get season one out of my head. It got a little crazy at the end with everybody dead, but it still seems the most shocking and the most terrifying, I suppose. Anyway, season four, here we come! Any guesses on what’s next?
Scarlett is in the recording studio with Liam and after he hears her shitkicker single, knowing it’s not really her or her kind of music, he demands that she be honest and record music she really wants to record. He picks up her journal and locks himself in the soundbooth, much to her distress, but he gets her to open up and with only a little time left, she puts down a sad, sweet, oh-so-Scarlett piece with nothing but her vocals and a piano.
And I almost forgot: Liam gives Scarlett some No-Doze type of drug to help her push through that last bit of recording time, and it looks like now Scarlett’s going to have a drug problem for a bit. I guess addiction runs in the family. These soapy shows. Always blowing everything out of proportion just for a little drama.
Tandy is in trouble with the law, having run off afraid of her father’s retribution, and she wants to ditch her deal just so their dad won’t come after her. It seems like she should have thought of this a while back…?
However, it seems like Teddy has also informed on his former father-in-law, so I’m a little confused. It seems that was the source of the hit on Teddy that actually killed Peggy, and so maybe the guy just thinks Teddy was the one who informed on him, even though he didn’t, and it was actually Tandy? I don’t get it.
Juliette gets officially inducted into the Grand Ol’ Opry, and instead of apologizing for the out-of-context God remark fiasco, she makes a stand and sings “Don’t Put Dirt on My Grave Just Yet” to tell everyone, including her label, that she’s not going anywhere no matter who tries to put her down.
The label guy fires her, and she makes a comment how he’s lost two of his biggest artists less than six months on the job. She’s not the one in trouble, but he might be.
Does this mean Juliette might be heading over to Rayna’s label? That should be interesting….
Juliette finally declares her feelings for Avery. All I have to say to that is, it’s about damn time! It may just be a lame promo tactic, but there could already be trouble in paradise for them this week. We’ll wait and see.
Men at Work
Neal is having trouble adjusting to life without Amy. Unfortunately, that coincides with the company getting a new boss. Fortunately for us, however, the guy playing the new boss is David Krumholtz!
Tyler, Gibbs, and Milo are all trying to keep Neal level, but with a new boss to impress, an eccentric one obsessed with Chris O’Donnell who wants to fire someone right out of the gate to show he means business, that makes their jobs all the more difficult.
Neal dresses up in the Three Musketeers costume that the boss brought in that O’Donnell wore in the movie, and the guys try to get him out of it before the new boss finds out. Though he’s all ready to fire Neal, he sees how the others stand up for Neal and wants to give him a shot. Plus there’s the guy with the pocketwatch for him to fire, so it all works out.
I am sad to see JK Simmons go–I assume he’s gone because Krumholtz’s character just assumed his job, rather unexpectedly–but if there’s anybody who can fill those shoes, it’s David Krumholtz. This show is a WAY better fit, and may I say, a way better character, than that disaster he and Sophia Bush had on CBS last year, Partners, I think? I’d be surprised if he didn’t get picked up as a regular with serious airtime. We’ll keep an eye out!
Recaps from Monday night’s new episodes of How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls and The Following are coming with Tuesday’s recap of Justified. It’s book club night, so I am probably going to miss most of Agents of SHIELD, but we’ll see.
Ahead, we’ve got new episodes of Agents of SHIELD, New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine (the new episode airs after New Girl, the one prior is a repeat, according to my listings), Justified, and Trophy Wife on Tuesday night.
Wednesday, Psych, Nashville, Men at Work, and The Tomorrow People are back with new episodes.
Thursday night, Rake, Reign and The Crazy Ones are all new.
Friday, it’ll just be Enlisted with a new ep!
The 2014 Sochi Olympics begin later this week, so I suspect a good number of the shows will be off for the next two to three weeks, with the exception of NBC shows which we know will be off since NBC is televising the games.
Frankly, I’m looking forward to a lighter schedule. I’m already getting that burn-out feeling (though that is also due to a half a dozen other factors aside from too much blogging/not enough time), but I’m hoping that once I swap the blog over to the new custom domain, it’ll disappear, or at least subside a bit.
REMINDER: The swap to the new custom domain SHOULD happen at the end of the week. If you still head back to the Blogger address, don’t worry, you’ll be directed to the new site, but I just wanted you to keep that all in mind! It’s gonna be great!
