TV Recap: Better Call Saul – Your Past Catches Up With You …

Better Call Saul
“Smoke” (Episode 401)
August 6, 2018

At the end of Season 3 of Better Call Saul, HHM faced an astronomical increase in malpractice premiums (following Jimmy’s dropping the dime to their insurance carrier about Chuck’s condition). Chuck, recently on the road to recovery and back at work, wanted to fight the increase while Howard, finally having had enough of the Chuck Liability, gives Chuck $3 million (of his own funds) in severance and announces Chuck’s “retirement” to the firm.  That night, disgraced and in full mental illness regression, Chuck kicks over a lantern setting his house ablaze.

Elsewhere, Kim, who was burning the candle in 7 different places, fell asleep behind the wheel of her car causing her to crash and break her arm.  She was on the way to a client meeting and client files were strewn about the road.  Hector Salamanca, after learning that Gus will be handling all smuggling work, as per the big boss (Don Eladio), suffers the heart attack we had been waiting for. Nacho is able to replace his fake heart medication pills for the real ones before the ambulance takes Hector away.  Gus witnesses this exchange but says nothing … for now. Jimmy, in a final attempt to rehabilitate Irene with her friends, blows his sweet Sandpiper deal and his status with the senior citizen crowd. And Mike Ehrmantraut?  He’s still working for Madrigal.

Oh, and in the future Cinnabon Jimmy (who goes by Gene) passes out while at work in his Omaha Mall Cinnabon.

TV Recap: The Bold Type – “Fromage”

The Bold Type
“Trippin” (Episode 209)
July 31, 2018

As I sit here to reflect on last week’s episode before diving into this week’s episode, I turned to Dagny’s version of Landslide and am immediately filled with a warm fuzzy feeling. I want to touch on the use of background music in each episode bringing us new artists and remakes of classics. Each week I am reminded of all the reasons I became a fan last Summer; most importantly, the show is super relatable.

Before reading any further, make sure you are caught up on last week’s action with my deep dive recap & review here.  All done? Good.  Let’s dive into tonight’s episode which leads us to our first ever run in with the infamous Babs Brady. As always spoilers ahead.

The last episode of The Outpost left off with Talon being stabbed and then being carried away by the man in the hood and cape – the same man that had been watching her at the bar [ED. NOTE: He was watching her like a total old man, creeper].

Who is that man? Does Talon survive?  Make sure you’re caught up on everything that happened last week with my deep dive recap & review here!

TV Recap: Reverie – Farewell …

“Despedida” (Episode 108)
July 25, 2018

During last week’s episode of Reverie,we saw what happens when an “East Berlin” takes place – that’s the name when two Reveries cross paths. Mara had to work to help Ehmet who was being held by a branch of the Department of Defense and being interrogated by a pilot program using Reverie. The DOD believed Ehmet was a part of a terrorist cell but they were sorely mistaken. Thankfully, with the help of her team, Mara was able to go back into Ehmet’s Reverie and get out via the Mandala. When Mara returned from the program she had a large bruise on her side from being shot while in the program. We don’t know how long this effect will last; Paul wasn’t comfortable with it but didn’t say so. By the end of the episode we can almost safely say Monica Shaw is team Onira Tech and made sure the interrogation seen in the East Berlin wouldn’t happen. Oh, Chris and Mara got “friendly” after dinner at the end of the episode.

Well here we go for “Despedida” which is Spanish for “farewell“; we begin … after the jump (Spoilers Beware)!

TV Recap: The Bold Type – “The Fleetwood Mac Song”

The Bold Type
“Plan B” (Episode 208)
July 17, 2018

Last week was episode “Betsy,” which I can’t wait to write up. As a brief overview, Jane found Sutton’s shotgun which Sutton named Betsy in high school. Jane who is opposed to having guns around  tries to be open minded about Sutton’s love for Betsy and why she enjoyed shooting skeet. Although she can’t come around on the topic, Sutton makes a compromise. Jane also furthered her relationship with Ben and speaking of relationships, Adena made a ground rule to allow Kat to experiment with her sexuality. Sutton had a bit of a hiccup with one of her connections for an item for a shoot but Oliver handled it.

Now we head into this week’s episode and it’s a bit heavy hitting as well. Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched.
