The Walking Dead - Chokepoint - 9.13 - Review & Recap

The Walking DeadOn the latest episode of The Walking Dead, Daryl and Connie attempt to save Lydia and Henry while the Kingdom meets some new allies.

For as much as I’ve been annoyed by Henry and Lydia, I found this week’s episode to be fairly enjoyable - except for the end, but we’ll get to that.

Lately the Kingdom story hasn’t been as integral to the episodes as the rest, but this week that starts to change as the groups are merging together at the fair. It’s going to be great to see some of them back together again, at least for a while, and we at least get a taste of that.

The Walking Dead - Guardians - 9.12 - Review & Recap

The Walking DeadThe episode did have some good action this week, but most of what sticks out to me is how annoying Henry still is. Everything could have been avoided just by him staying home, but of course, he thinks he’s a hero. He can’t even track without being spotted. The other thing, is that the majority of the episode was super predictable with him. I’m blaming the writers on this one.

I am interested a bit more in Lydia this week, however. It seems, at least to me, that other than telling Daryl and the others there were only a few Whisperers, that she told the truth. I think she really does want out of the situation. I feel like what she told Alpha was pretty much the bare minimum, and she only said anything because she’s scared of her mother. Although, Alpha trying to force her to kill Henry, doesn’t really show her if she has feelings for him. I’m guessing Lydia probably wouldn’t have wanted to kill anyone in cold blood.

The Magicians - A Timeline and Place - 4.06 - Recap & Review

The MagiciansI really liked this week’s episode. It was interesting to see that Penny and Marina’s timeline jump has caused repercussions. However, although some of the timey-wimey stuff happening with them felt a little unnecessary, I enjoyed it none the less, especially both Pennys interacting with each other. Arjun Gupta was excellent in that scene and looked like he was having a lot of fun. It also serves as a good reminder that although Penny 40 may be fitting in, the original Penny has been dead. At least we got to see what he’s been up to. I’m not sure how Kady will react to his message, but I still hold hope that somehow he’ll get to see her again. With this show, you never know.

Shadowhunters - Lost Souls - 3.11 - Review & Recap

ShadowhuntersI am really excited for Shadowhunters to be back. The episode after the hiatus was emotional as everyone was mourning Clary (Katherine McNamara), and the use of their memory flashes helped to convey that. Dominic Sherwood especially did a spectacular job in his mourning as Jace, so devastated that he doesn’t even get any hope from Luke (Isaiah Mustafa)’s suggestion that Clary may still be alive.

Obviously, it wasn’t a surprise that Clary was alive, nor that she was with Jonathan, but I did enjoy McNamara’s scenes with Luke Baines, especially the way she held her own. However, I’m not sure her plan to walk out into the middle of the snow in Siberia with assumedly no stele was a very smart one.

The scenes with Magnus (Harry Shum Jr.) and Alec (Matthew Daddario) were sweet, with Alec trying to convince Magnus that losing his magic wasn’t everything. Their interactions with Madzie (Ariana Williams) were also cute, especially Alec reading to her.

The Walking Dead - Bounty - 9.11 - Review & Recap

The Walking DeadWhile I sometimes struggle with the show each week, this one was a pretty good episode, though a bit slow. Most of the scenes with Ezekiel, Carol, and Jerry were unnecessary, other than the stuff with the charter. They could have just made a comment that they got the bulb. However, I can’t say they weren’t enjoyable. I especially always love seeing Melissa McBride. Jerry of course was also a lot of fun like always, though I’m not sure it was worth risking their life twice for the bulb.

I also worry about Jerry. I love seeing him happy and with a family, but no one has died in a while, and a lot of times once people are settled it spells the end.

As for the storyline with Alpha, I have mixed feelings. Overall, it’s nice for once to see things go as planned for the group, but at the same time, not a whole lot actually happened. As Alpha said, “No conflict.” I am really enjoying Samantha Morton as Alpha though.

Gavin attaches the siphon on the well spring to divert magic to the Library, so they can control who uses it. Fogg was involved in the deal with the Library and Irene to make it happen, in exchange for the lives of the students, and uses his potion to erase their memories and give them new magic-free identities as protection. However, Alice is not included, as she is arrested by the Library on backing out of her deal.
