Preacher - Finish the Song

While Jesse (Dominic Cooper) hides out from the law and buys himself time for his big Sunday sermon, Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Emily (Lucy Griffiths) help nurse Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) back to full strength. Tulip’s idea to feed the vampire animals from the local pet shop is a rather ingenious plan, but it’s Emily’s actions involving the Mayor (Ricky Mabe) which prove surprising. Sacrificing the needy Miles to a vampire she doesn’t particularly like is a momentous choice for Emily, and one that may well haunt her for many episodes to come. As for Tulip, the experience inspires her to stop waiting for her revenge.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy - I Feel the Earth Move

Picking up where the last episode left off, “I Feel the Earth Move” boils down into basically two separate fight sequences with the Guardians of the Galaxy taking on Thanos (Isaac C. Singleton Jr.) who now has control of the Cosmic Seed. The first encounter in the Himalayan Mountains doesn’t turn out all too well for our heroes (although it does allow them to temporarily remove Thanos from Earth), while the second encounter in New York City puts the entire planet at risk as the heroes not only have to worry about Thanos (whose power to create tentacle vines doesn’t appear as threatening as it probably should) but also Ronan (Jonathan Adams) who plans to kill Thanos by destroying the planet.

Killjoys - Schooled

Taking a trio of gifted Westerley children to a school located on a space station is just the cover Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen), John (Aaron Ashmore), and D’Avin (Luke Macfarlane) need to track Khlyen‘s (Rob Stewart) final message before the destruction of Red 17. However, once they arrive it doesn’t take the Killjoys long to realize something is very, very wrong with the school as its only surviving student (Ricardo Hoyos) will risk everything to make it off the station alive. Of course having the same bizarre murderous memories in his head D’Avin is unable to make sense of, and seeing the rest of his classmates murdered, does help explain the kid’s distrust of every adult aboard the station.

Mr. Robot - eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc / eps2.0_unm4sk-pt2.tc

The two-part opening to Mr. Robot‘s Second Season features Elliot‘s (Rami Malek) attempts to ignore Mr. Robot‘s (Christian Slater) influence by sticking to a stringent regiment that offers him little temptation to return to the world of computers and his hacking past. The question the first two episodes ask is how long can someone run from themselves? And how long can Elliot continue to ignore his driven ID who continues to force his hand during Elliot’s down time? And why is Mr. Robot so adamant about not letting Elliot know where Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallström) is now in a disagreement where serial murder (of the mind) is somehow a better option than cluing Elliot in on the truth?

Pretty Little Liars - Along Comes Mary

“Along Comes Mary” earns its name as Mary Drake (Andrea Parker) attempts to make amends by helping to get Alison (Sasha Pieterse) released from the mental hospital. Still reeling from revelations about her husband, and his death, Alison is further shaken by the police investigation into his disappearance (which the new A seems to be steering away from the story the Liars worked had to craft). Emily (Shay Mitchell) gets an unexpected boon from their adversary who helps her with a missed college test. The question is what with A want in return? And how does the return of Noel Kahn (Brant Daugherty) and Jenna Marshall (Tammin Sursok) new friendship with Sara Harvey (Dre Davis) play into A’s game?
