"People burn through it in a week or two," Kripke says (via GamesRadar). "There’s an intense amount of activity and then it sort of fades…. There’s so many great moments in season 2, we want to give it time to marinate so people can reflect on it and talk about it before they move on to the next thing and be in the conversation a little longer. I think a little anticipation for the fans is healthy." … [Read more...] about When is the next episode of The Boys season 2 on Amazon Prime Video?
Gotham episode 19 season 3
Carl, discouraged by his father’s guarded approach to strangers, seeks out a man he ran into at a gas station a few episodes back. He finds him in the woods, and befriends him after using Rick’s infamous three-question test — the one that asks a stranger to own up to how many of the undead and how many of the living they have killed — to ensure the man’s trustworthiness. Named Saddiq, the survivor is a character from the comics who played an integral role in recruiting the all-female Oceanside community into the fight. So it’s easy to see how crucial he might prove to be here in the show, though I’m curious how long it will take for Siddiq to move beyond his role as a plot device for Carl, who’s clearly trying to emulate his father’s more virtuous traits. … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead Villain Watch season 8, episode 6: The King, the Widow, and Rick
That said, the show has demonstrated it can still be good when it wants to be, which is what makes the last two episodes before the mid-season break so crucial. They’re The Walking Dead’s final shots to prove that the season has been worth watching, and that the dead-ends and constant bottle episodes have been part of some grander, meaningful design. The show has been flailing ever since Negan’s introduction and Glenn’s death. If showrunner Scott Gimple wants to prove that there’s been a point to it all, then last night’s episode, “Time for After,” is the time to start doing it. … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead Villain Watch season 8, episode 7: Time for After
Carl has a rougher go of it this episode. After stalling Negan long enough to let Alexandria escape underground, finally realizing his potential as a leadership figure as strong as his father, Carl comes very close to getting caught up in the Saviors’ many fire-spreading explosions. Injured but alive, he evades capture long enough to get to the underground himself. There, Rick finds him, for a critical moment the entire episode has been building toward. Carl, sickly as if from a gunshot wound, explains that he saved the man Siddiq, who Rick also meets again in the sewers. But in the process, Carl explains, he suffered an injury. And he lifts his shirt to reveal a walker bite. … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead Villain Watch season 8, episode 8: How It’s Gotta Be
MORGAN BREAKS HIS VOW Nick: As Ezekiel and his crew of Kingdom dwellers pull into the parking lot for the second Saviors handoff, we’re treated with the full-circle repeat of the episode’s opening scene showing a lone cantaloupe in the truck bed. What happens next is indeed a bit of a surprise: as Richard hands over the offering, Morgan strikes him down with his staff, and proceeds to strangle him to death while everyone looks on and does nothing. Morgan reveals Richard’s transgression — trying to instigate a war and getting Benjamin killed — and it’s a bit unclear at first how the audience is supposed to feel, especially after Morgan mistakenly uses his own deceased son Duane’s name when referring to Benjamin in the aftermath. … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead Redemption Club season 7, episode 13: Bury Me Here
