I am pretty sure that the next few weeks of SHIELD are going to lead up to Avengers 2, as I have said before. Baron Von Struecker was mentioned in this episode, who was seen at the end of Cap America 2 - it is rumoured that the opening of Avengers 2 will be an assault on his base (also rumoured that some of the Agents might make appearances in the film).
And I like the theory that Bobbie and Mack are working for Stark - he would so be keeping an eye on the SHIELD survivors.
I wouldn't mind betting we see an Avenger appear soon-ish in one of the episodes, or one of those supporting them such as Maria Hill. In theory, they don't know Coulson is still alive. And as Joss Whedon is both show-runner of Shield, and director of Avengers 2, I cant see there not being a cross over of some sort...

Very intense and great episode. I usually hate prison episodes in any show but this was actually very well done. The prisoners where portrayed as individuals not all evil. JHL nailed her scene leaving the prison. Good to see Morgan not being supeman.

The 100 Season 2 Episode 15 Review: Blood Must Have Blood, Part One

This was probably the worst and most senseless episode of The 100 run, the only but massive mistake. The objective of the Lexa and the war was to END the mountain men. Her speech about ending their reign of terror was what it was always about for Lexa, the long term victory, no saving a few trapped grounders inside. Remember just a day ago she LET 250 of her people be bombed, so victory over the Mountain Men could be assured. And she would abandon that objective and sacrife to save like 50-60 grounders inside?!!!!!! RIDICULOUS and illogical!! Not to mention at the cost of breaking a strategic military alliance, a betrayal to the leader of her allies and the woman she loves, and breaking their own law of 'blood must be blood', where justice and all the terror they've done on her people had to be payed in blood. That was her war chant, their law, and intrinsic part of the purpose. Not abandoning a sure victory (cause they were ALREADY IN and outnumbered vastly the Mountain Men> 300 vs 10000?!) for some short term saving of a few. That goes against what her character has characterized since day one: the greater good and long term goals over the sacrifice of a few. This was the very opposite of that! And so much for them not queerbating the audience and being all 'progressive'. They go and do this, so they don't actually have to show the big LGBT couple they promoted so much...a second after they kiss. Pffttt...when that relationship had so much promise and was so well developed, they trash it before it takes off. Just another show in a long list of show to use the LGBT comminuty for a ratings stunt. I stupidly thought The 100 was finally the one that would not do that. How foolish of me.
Think I might be tunning out of this show, after being a hardcore fan from day one, but this episde was just to wrong on so many levels, that i think it is beyond repair. I am profoundly disappointed.

what shipping? I was talking about the story and the failure to make it logical. that includes the whole promo of the LBGT angle saying it was for real when it was a stunt. I was calling them out on that, the whole mess of the episode. Not for shipping purposes. I'm not a dumb teen who 'teams/ships'. I watch it for the story and tonight they have so many contradictions and twists-over-plot development, that it is disappointing. I thought they had better showrunners/writers than that. Guess i was wrong.

Actually, by giving them the sky people, the mountain people never ever have to kidnap grounders again. They needed the grounders for the temporary relief their blood gave them, but the sky people blood is permanent. Not a bad deal considering no lives have to be lost in the attack, they get their people back, and TWO threats are neutralized: the sky people with their losses and the mountain people who no longer need to prey on grounders.

Why is the sky people blood permanent? I missed that their blood was different then the grounders. Interesting. You'd think it would be the opposite.

Actually it's their bone marrow. With the sky people bone marrow, they never have to have another transfusion again. They said it was because the sky people lived on the space station for so long and constantly exposed to radiation that they built up a higher than normal tolerance to it.

No one does flashbacks better than Suits. This was a great finale! When it comes to Mike and Rachel I don't know if they're endgame but I do know this - proposing to someone because something happened and you want to grasp life and don't waste time is not a very good idea. So I predict there will be many rocks ahead. And Harvey...oh, Harvey. I don't know why he said 'I love you' to Donna but it sure as hell wasn't for comfort. I don't think Harvey knows why he said that, it was on the spur of the moment and that's why I think it was the most honest he was about his feelings. Donna not working for him anymore- it's gonna hurt him and it's gonna hurt us as viewers without their witty intereaction but it's a much needed change in their dynamics, I can't wait to see it unravel. Maybe it will open Harvey's eyes to something he haven't allowed himself to see before.
One way or another, it's gonna be a loooong wait for summer and season 5.

A most excellent finale! I totally agree with the review this is not the endgame for Mike and Rachel. This was a much needed development for Donna she will certainly be an excellent balance for Louis. Hopefully this will be a wake-up call for Harvey. Can't wait for the next summer installment.

Yawn this has all been done before in quite a few episodes of CSI NY, Flashpoint, and lately Eye Candy (with gore and sex).

CSI: Cyber Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Kidnapping 2.0

Just watched csi cyber. Very difficult to watch with such loud, continuous background music/noise. Not sure I will watch it again.

Notice the two kidnappers were left to drown (or at least their rescue was off screen) while the baby was being rescued from the water.

@ rarpsl

I caught that too! It was probably the biggest surprise in the episode. And if they couldn't find an orphan to steal, wouldn't it be easier to buy one off an addict or something like that, rather than a middle class kid everybody would be looking for?

Empire Season 1 Episode 9 Review: Unto the Breach

I'm glad i'm not the only one who noticed the D'Angelo vibe happening with Jamal's video. I love Jamal but I was not a fan of that. Omg drunk Cookie is the best! I don't think Malcolm knows what to do with that much Cookie. The breakdown with Andre was raw. I wonder if Lucious knows about his illness and that's why he had security keep him in the room, or if he just noticed something was wrong. I hope Andre's breakdown leads to more of getting to know Rhonda in the next episode.

I don't think many were feeling that, at all. And I understand branding but what was with that big ass neon EMPIRE sign behind him in that shot? lol

I spotted the killer as soon as they mentioned Eric having gotten the codes by romancing them from a woman. That raised red flags in my mind about the female cyber cop. As to flipping the lights so you have a clear path, the usual method is to use an infrared strobe to trip the signals (authorized emergency vehicles are equipped with them to allow them to get clearance to get the the green lights they need). The method that was used was more complex since it needed the vehicle to be real time tracked by GPS so its location was known to allow the correct lights to be manipulated to give it the needed Green Lights.
