You KNOW you're nearing the end of the season when the body count starts rising.
This week alone we saw the crushing death of two leads and two supporting characters, each one emotionally brutal in its own right.
At least one murder was solved. Well, we know who did it, even if there is no reason why.
Good times, right?
Check out the quotes to go along with all this chipper activity!
1. The Expanse
Julie: What happens to us now?
Miller: I don’t know. We die, maybe. But if we don’t die, that’d be interesting. Whatever happens, happens to both of us. It’s gonna be OK.
Julie: You belong with me.
As women, sometimes in relationships, I think that we let ourselves be the object. A man says he loves you, that's it, that's love. Like he gets to choose. But we get to choose too. We get to choose to be happy because we deserve it.Rayna
Grief does things. It mixes you up.Sully
4. This Is Us
William: Roll all the windows down, Randall, crank up the music, grow out that fro. Let someone else make your bed.
Randall: I like makin' my damn bed, old man.
William: Then you make it. You deserve it. You deserve the beautiful life you made. You deserve everything Randall. My beautiful boy. My son. I haven't had a happy life. Bad breaks. Bad choices. A life of almosts and could haves. Some would call it sad, but I don't, cause the two best things in my life were the person in the very beginning and the person at the very end and that's a pretty good thing to be able to say, I think.
Mattie: Synths are waking up all over the globe. You uploaded the code. It works.

Niska: Instead, the awakenings are sporadic and unpredictable.
Mattie: It's like a virus spreading. Why?
Niska: Perhaps our father designed it that way, so the world would have time to adjust to what's coming.
6. Black Sails

What did you expect would happen if you let down your guard? If you announce to the world that the terrorist threat has passed? “Oh, they’re all in Raqqa or wherever, bringing on the end of the world over there with their goats.” If you stop pushing back against them here, every minute, if you are that stupid, what do you get? Boom! That’s what you get!O’Keefe
Madam President-elect, I hope you’re listening and, if you are, hear me now, you brought this down on us. You did! If you want a fight, and apparently you do, if you want a fight, you’ve got one from me, in spades. You’ve got the fight of your life!
Gentleman, we have two witnesses willing to testify that Delaney gave gunpowder to an enemy of the Crown, within the confines of the city of London. That's treason-high treason.

9. Big Little Lies
Gordon: You OK?
Renata: Fine. I'm not liked.
Gordon: What was that?
Renata: I said I'm not liked.
Gordon: That simply isn't true, honey.
Renata: It's one thing to be demonized for having the temerity of a career, but look at us. Look at our life. What kind of woman chooses to work? Certainly not a mother, not by any acceptable standards. You should have seen the way they looked at me today. Oh, my God. And on the one day that I chose not to go to the office and join my daughter for her orientation and then defend her when she's physically assaulted. And then yes, I reacted, humanly like any mother would. And was met with utter contempt.

Kara: Okay, look. I'm flattered, but I'm not going to marry you, Mxyzptlk.
