Clipped - Reunion

Clipped closes out it’s First Season with a high school reunion finale for most of the employees of the barber shop. Along with introducing us to the prom date Danni (Ashley Tisdale) dumped in favor of A.J. (Mike Castle), and allow Ben (Ryan Pinkston) to confront an old bully (or at least attempt to), “Reunion” also reveals Charmaine’s (Diona Reasonover) secret wish to have been a cheerleader in high school.

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.

Back on the same page with finding Liam (Jason “Iron Eagle” Gedrick), especially now that they realize that anyone exposed to Julianna’s (Gloria Votsis) formula is at risk, Catherine (Kristin Kreuk) and Vincent (Jay Ryan) begin to search for the super-powered killer but as they do Catherine becomes more and more concerned with Vincent’s behavior. Uncovering that Julianna’s brother one was of her test subjects leads them one-step closer to Liam. Meanwhile Tess (Nina Lisandrello) is concerned with keeping J.T. (Nina Lisandrello) as far away from the psychopath as possible. When the two storylines converge a truth is revealed about Liam and why his presence continues to mess with Vincent’s mind, the fallout of which will likely continue to effect everyone through the end of the season.

Structured entirely in split-screen, “The Breakfast” follows an everyday morning for both Wander (Jack McBrayer) and Lord Hater (Keith Ferguson) as each wakes and prepares breakfast.

Clipped - Free Wednesday

In “Free Wednesday” both the main story and B-story play on ongoing themes of the show’s First Season. The episode gets it’s name from an embarrassing event from Ben’s (Ryan Pinkston) high school years which is brought up by the passing of a former high school teacher (Larry Miller) who collapses from a heart attack outside the barber shop after Ben berates the elderly man. The lack of Ben’s remorse doesn’t sit well with the rest of crew, but his attempt to rectify the situation by attending the man’s funeral only ends in more embarrassment for everyone involved.

Pretty Little Liars - Game Over, Charles

The Summer finale of Pretty Little Liars answers several questions including the identity of Red Coat to be Sara (Dre Davis) and the identity of the Liars nemesis A as CeCe Drake (Vanessa Ray). In a bizarre episode that confirms CeCe Drake is, or at least was, Charles DiLaurentis the finale ends the storyline and timeline of the show as we know it. Filling in the gaps to explain the murders of several key supporting characters over the years, CeCe explains all to Alison (Sasha Pieterse) while Aria (Lucy Hale), Hanna (Ashley Benson), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Emily (Shay Mitchell), and Mona (Janel Parrish) can do nothing but watch A unmask and explain her actions over the past five years.
