The Good Place Season 2 is better than Season 1
I loved The Good Place Season 1, but the finale had me skeptical about where they were going to go with it. Were they just going to start all over? Well they did, hundreds of times, but they did it all in one hilarious episode and then went in a completely different and unexpected direction. The Good Place Season 2 has been a pleasant surprise, and I clearly did not need to be concerned.
Jace and Maia's hookup on Shadowhunters
I don't know what surprised me most, Jace and Maia hooking up in the back alley of the Hunter's Moon, or me actually liking it. Clary, who? If not for the fact that Maia and Simon are absolutely adorable together I would unapologetically steer the Jace and Maia ship myself.
Letty killed on Good Behavior
The penultimate episode before the finale of Good Behavior ended with a bang or two, and not the fun kind (though it was one of those too). Letty is a truly flawed character, but the one line she never crossed was killing anyone. Until that episode. It's a complete game changer leading up to a finale that will be out of this world. I never expected the show to go there with Letty, not once, but twice. Seriously have my fingers crossed for a renewal!
The whackadoodles of Bachelor Nation
There's the fact that I actually tuned into The Bachelorette for the first time ever, for starters. But the real surprise is that Rachel "chose" Bryan. We all know Rachel really wanted Peter, but for some reason, Peter was a commitment-phobe who signed up to be on a show where he was expected to propose to someone but he didn't want to propose. Then he kind of took the choice away from Rachel, so she sort of ended up with Bryan by default, but we're supposed to be convinced that he was her choice all along. Then the fandom actually wanted the known commitmentphobe to be the next Bachelor. Anyway, Bachelor Nation confuses the hell out of me and the finale was a surprise.
Sheriff Keller has a killer bod on Riverdale
Apparently, Sheriff Keller from Riverdale does NOT have a dad bod underneath that uniform. The man looks like he benchpresses mack trucks in his free time. It was an oddly surprising tidbit to learn about him. Even more so than the fact that he's sleeping with Mayor McCoy. Who knew this man kept so many secrets?!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. -- in SPACE!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 ended with quite a twist, with the heroes about to willingly face the music for their actions... only to end up kidnapped -- to outer space, as seen in a brief flash-forward in the finale's stinger! The new season actually doubled down by the dramatic reveal that Team Coulson hadn't been sent to some distant world, but to the *future*, and Earth was little more than a large debris field and a memory. Oh, yeah, and the remnants of humanity were slaves to the Kree.
