Sense8 - W. W. N. Double D?

As Amanita (Freema Agyeman) gets insight into Nomi‘s (Jamie Clayton) past as a hacker, skills she puts to good use to try and trace back who is behind the forced lobotomy of patients around the world with symptoms similar to her own, the pair discover just how large the stakes are when they get an up-close glimpse of the violent world they have peeled back the curtain to expose. Despite growing comfortable in his new role Capheus (Aml Ameen) is also awakened to the fact of just how violent a world he too now finds himself while working for a man willing to chop off a man’s hands with a machete without a second thought.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - The Creeping Doom

It’s all Mikey‘s (Greg Cipes) fault! Goofing off in Donatello‘s (Rob Paulsen) lab, Michaelangelo not only exposes Donatello to a chemical that slowly makes Donnie dumber but his actions also result in the creation of not one, not two, but three villains for the rest of the Turtles to band together to fight. Accidentally releasing the Creep who in turn uses the remains of Snakeweed to create Son of Snakeweed, the Turtles barely manage to defeat the pair only to see them combine into the monstrous Creepweed.

Killjoys - Escape Velocity

The First Season of Killjoys comes to a end with Alvis (Morgan Kelly) jailed and marked for death, the Company preparing to bomb Westerly into the Stone Age, Delle Seyah Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) using the genetic bomb to stage a coup, and one member of Lucy falling into Khlyen‘s (Rob Stewart) clutches. “Escape Velocity” is a pretty packed season finale that doesn’t so much wrap-up the various threads of the show’s First Season and lay the foundation for a possible Second Season.

Rookie Blue - Ninety Degrees

For some the recent scandal is easier to put behind them then others. Oliver (Matt Gordon) returns to 15 Division as a beat cop deciding he’s had enough of the politics behind the desk. Traci (Enuka Okuma) cuts off all ties to Steve Peck (Adam MacDonald). Meanwhile Gail (Charlotte Sullivan) is stuck with her brother being brought up on charges and a friend who continues to be distant while being forced to spend the day with Steve’s old partner (Katharine Isabelle) who decides to take out her aggression on the closest Peck she can find.

Beauty and the Beast - Unbreakable

Needing Vincent‘s (Jay Ryan) assistance to destroy blood samples that would draw the wrong kind of attention to both of them, Liam (Jason “Iron Eagle” Gedrick) proposes a temporary peace agreeing to leave Catherine (Kristin Kreuk) and J.T. (Nina Lisandrello) alone in exchange for Vincent’s help. While fighting her fears that Liam may be able to tempt her husband-to-be into giving into his more primative instincts, Catherine also attempts to sever Liam’s relationship with the powerful local family keeping the beast out of jail which reveals a truth about Liam’s far longer past than anyone suspected.

Wander Over Yonder - The Fremergency Fronfract

It took almost no time at all for “The Fremergency Fronfract” to become one of my favorite episodes of Wander Over Yonder. Opening with drugged Lord Hater (Keith Ferguson) accidentally giving Wander‘s (Jack McBrayer) name to the dentist as hiss emergency contact, the entire episode features a loopy Hater hanging out with Wander and Sylvia (April Winchell) and becoming the friend Wander always knew he could be with a trip to an arcade Sylvia is all too happy to capture via Instagram.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Attack of the Mega Shredder!

Returned to New York from their travels in time, the adventures of the Turtles get no less bizarre when they attempt to use stealth to sneak into Shredder‘s (Kevin Michael Richardson) lair. Despite Donatello‘s (Rob Paulsen) latest invention, the team’s first attempt ends in only getting Raphael (Sean Astin) injured and drawing Splinter‘s (Hoon Lee) ire. Leonardo (Seth Green) and Michelangelo‘s (Greg Cipes) second attempt only creates more trouble as their capture inadvertently causes the creation of the gigantic Mega Shredder (think a Godzilla creature but with more Picasso thrown in) the Turtles need their pals to help take down.

Killjoys - Enemy Khlyen

Setting the stage for next week’s season finale, the team is brought back together (albeit under the guise of breaking up for good). Realizing that Khlyen (Rob Stewart) is holed up in RAC’s home base, Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen), Johnny (Aaron Ashmore), and D’Avin (Luke Macfarlane) enter the lion’s den under the only premise which would get them close enough to give Dutch a shot at finding Khlyen – officially breaking up the team.

While Traci (Enuka Okuma) struggles with the realization that her boyfriend is a dirty cop, Sam (Ben Bass) attempts to convince Oliver (Matt Gordon) to stay and fight the charges rather than resign, and Andy (Missy Peregrym), Epstein (Gregory Smith), Nick (Peter Mooney), and Gail (Charlotte Sullivan) set a trap for Commissioner Alonso Santana (Richard Chevolleau) in a last-ditch attempt to prove Oliver’s innocence.
