Stumptown
“Rip City Dicks” (Episode 103)
October 9, 2019

In last week’s episode of Stumptown, we learned about Dex and Grey’s origin story. We also learned that Grey did hard time for grand larceny and he and his cell mate, Jack Feeney, owe some shady man $500,000. Sadly (?), Jack turned up dead at the end of episode. Also, surly Lieutenant Cosgrove told Dex she’s got a flair for detective work and suggested Dex get her PI license, do the job the right way. Cosgrove’s advice brings us to the start of this week’s episode.

Get caught up with last week’s episode with our deep dive recap, here. Caught up? Great, let’s see what kind of shenanigans Dex gets up to in this week’s all new StumptownBEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!

TV Recap: EVIL (Episode 107) – A Hierarchy of Demons …

EVIL
“Vatican III” (Episode 107)
November 14, 2019

Last week on EVIL, the God Squad investigated a prophet, Grace Ling, from Flushing, Queens (my hometown!). The Church is worried about Grace because some of her prophecies are identical to prophecies made over 500 years ago and recorded in the super secret, “Poveglia Codex.” Few people know about the Codex and only Popes have ever seen the thing. Grace is taken into custody on an ICE raid before she is able to help the God Squad fill in missing info in the Codex. Meanwhile, Leland is revealed to be Grandma Sheryl’s new boyfriend and Kristen cuts a bitch to get him to leave her house. But, not before he brings the girls red devil diaries. The episode ends with Grandma Sheryl sleeping with Leland and the bed erupting into flames. But, like, metaphorical flames. I think Leland has passed some of his demon seed into Grandma Sheryl! Yikes!

When it’s revealed that Martin engineered the entire lockdown, he’s sent to solitary confinement but, c’mon, that’s definitely part of his plan. Right?

TV Recap: Treadstone (Episode 104) – Who Are You?

Treadstone
“The Kentucky Contract” (Episode 104)
November 5, 2019

On last week’s Treadstone, Bentley made a deal with Kohler to bring Petra into the CIA for questioning. In the present, SoYun was blackmailed into helping bring down Dae’s boss, Colonel Shin. Also, we met a new Cicada, Nira Patel, who seems very okay with killing. And last, when Doug failed to kill his assigned target, a shadowy figure dropped by his house and explained Doug needed some reprogramming. After a struggle, Samantha shot the man dead and maybe seems to know something of Doug’s true self (maybe more than Doug knows, anyway).

On last week’s Prodigal Son, Ainsley got one step closer to having her sit down interview with the serial killer father she barely knows and Malcolm got one step closer to unraveling his memories. After spending the episode searching for the station wagon used by him and his dad in a long forgotten camping trip, the episode ended with Malcolm finding the car. In the wagon’s cargo area, Malcolm located tether points that you could chain a human to and a UV light revealed the presence of blood splatter.

TV Recap: Treadstone (Episode 103) – Clean Up Protocol …

Treadstone
“The Berlin Proposal” (Episode 103)
October 29, 2019

Welcome to Operation Treadstone. We are playing catch upon Treadstone episode recaps because, originally, we weren’t going to do weekly recaps. So, we’re starting here with Episode 3 and then we’ll back-fill the first two episodes as we move forward with the rest of the season.

To catch you up really quickly and without enough detail, back in 1973, the Russians created a program whereby human minds were manipulated to become deadly killing machines. But, until activated, these humans were unaware of their programming or their deadly skills. This was the Cicada Protocol. Now, in the present, a new generation of these sleeping Cicadas are being activated around the world to kill … and no one seems sure why.

TV Recap: EVIL (Episode 105) – God Has Forsaken You …

Evil 
“October 31” (Episode 105)
October 24, 2019

I must confess, I have not regained full composure after last week’s EVIL; it was gut-wrenching. In short, last week, the God Squad investigated a potentially possessed or psychopathic 9-year old boy. After he tried to drown his baby sister in the family pool, the God Squad came to the conclusion that an exorcism was needed to address a possible demon in him. Unfortunately, when the God Squad showed up to perform the rite, the boy had gone missing. The grieving mother gave the God Squad (and us) enough hints to conclude the parents killed the boy in order to protect their other children. Meanwhile, Kristen’s Mom gave her granddaughters augmented reality goggles, which seemed fine until they activated an MA-rated game and the web-enabled component that brought in a gamer named Rose390, who dialed up the intensity and maybe is an agent of the Devil? 

It’s Halloween in the show and almost Halloween in real life. With that in mind, are you ready for a bona fide exorcism where science and religion collide, spectacularly? Great! Let’s get into tonight’s all new episode of EVIL … BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!
