Great review. I've been waiting ever since the first appearance of this teacher for the inappropriate sexual relationship to begin. As for Ray and the 3% stake, you could tell a mile off that was never going to happen. The Achilles' heel of this show is its predictability. Anybody know the name/artist of the song in the closing credits?

Once Upon a Time Season 5 Premiere Scene

Hahaha, Regina is the best. "It's not like she rode away on a unicorn." I was very disappointed last season, really hope this one is going to be better again.

Hell on Wheels Season 5 Episode 5 Review: Elixir of Life

I'm kind of hoping that we end the fight between the Swede and Cullen this season. It's been so long now, and while they are great together, it seems to me that the last season should focus back on Durant and Cullen.

Power Season 2 Episode 10 Review: Ghost is Dead

Great review. you left out the part where angela threw her belongings that she got from ghost away in the basement. Maybe she's not fully on his side.

I think that was just trash. I believe that was a canvas tote she put all the gifts in. Don't see her tossing an expensive necklace into the trash. Not sure what the going rate is for that many rocks around your neck but figure at least 250k. That would take care of all her nieces' & nephews' college.

Well folks, this has been great...the show, the recaps, and the company. We will meet back here, same time next year (it hurts to say that!), to see if we have a scarred up, meaner Kanan...if meaner is even possible *shudder*. What are you watching next, Whitney?

The Strain Season 2 Episode 6 Review: Identity

Well, well, well. Mr Q didn't have a bad*ss introduction like Vaun, but we learnt three very important facts. First, he's able to walk around during daylight, though it might only be for a short time - which is why he demanded human fighters. Brings me straight to point 2: Quinlan is in a position in which he can DEMAND things from the ANCIENTS. His whole speech was like "Guys, seriously? Do I have to do everything around here?" He's definitively not a servant like Vaun was. Point 3: he felt the Master when he was wounded. That means the Master usually shields his mind from Quinlan! And why would he do that if Quinlan wasn't some kind of threat?
IMO the writers gave this strigoi a fantastic introduction, not because they gave him an awesome fight but because they underlined how very special Q is. And that was all I asked for ;-) Looking forward to Eph's storyline and how it will play out from this point on. Liked Nora and Zach together, enjoyed the cavalry coming to their rescue. Hope both Gus and Angel will join Quinlan. Damn, and somebody hand over an emmy to Richard Sammel asap. That last scene was perfect. Eichhorst's pride, his anticipation, then his disbelief and grief... only to be assured he will always be the master's favourite and that he's too precious to be a mere vessel.

I wondered whether the overcast snowy sky made a difference? If so, hope the rest of them don't find that out!

This is a show that every week I'm less excited about than other shows, yet every week I am enthralled every minute until the end of each episode. I really hope that they renew it but if they do I feel that it needs to go bigger to keep the excitement built during the week. Maybe get John involved in a bigger crime syndicate. Something that spreads outside this one city.

I love Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll! It's hilarious funny and Gigi is so talented! The music from this show is awesome.

If Theresa would listen to Anne's advice to stop scheming and just be a good mother, frankly, that would thaw out Brady better than anything she could imagine.

Best episode of the season thus far. The church scene was super intense. I thought Kelly was going to get to Zach this time for sure but the team saved the day for now. Where the hell was Dutch? Quinlan is going to be awesome. How does he get away with talking to the Ancients like that? Ooh yeah, because they need him to do their dirty work. I loved him jumping out of the back of that truck during the day and he looks bad ass. I can't wait to see him use that bone handled sword or whatever it is. Vaun who? The assassin surprised me. I don't remember Palmer doing that either. I guess we were just never showed that part. What is Eph going to do now? The Master transferring to Bolivar was predictable but still pretty cool. He looks more fearsome now too, in my opinion. Poor Eichorst stays a servant. I wonder if he'll get tired of that role at some point. Great review Hank as always. Can't wait for next week.

Oh my, I forgot the scene with the coffin! Damn. Now I'm curious which one of us will be right ;-)

'Poor Eichhorst' is allowed to live, actually. When the Master chose Sardu, there wasn't anything left of the gentle giant, just his body. So Bolivar is dead now, his body completely taken over. The Master didn't want to control Eichhort's body because then he would've lost his most trusted servant. I think in that last moment Eichhorst understood exactly this - he'll be the second in command forever (as long as he doesn't fail the Master, but he obviously did a great job during the last decades, so...). And I'm pretty sure Eichhorst sees it as a very great honor.

You make a good point but I think maybe for Eichorst the ultimate honor would be to give himself up for the Master. To have that honor given to a newly turned vamp like Bolivar might be insulting. Look back a couple episodes when he wouldn't even let Bolivar touch the coffin. He didn't think Bolivar was worthy. Either way it should be interesting.
