The Flash S01 E19: Who Is Harrison Wells?


Who is Harrison Wells? This is the big question and the mystery that has haunted the cast and viewers of “The Flash” since the very beginning. We’ve known he’s the Reverse-Flash for quite some time, known he’s the Eobard Thawne version of the character for a while, and known how he got here and now for just a few weeks. But it’s been a slower process for the characters in the show to realize all this, and now it’s all coming to a climax. Add in a trip to two other comic book cities, and a shape-shifting villain, and we’ve got a full plate this episode. Meet me after the super-speed jump for my review of “Who Is Harrison Wells?.”

Bates Motel S02 E06: Plunge


White Pine Bay is a hotbed of sex and drugs. On the last episode we see that Sheriff Romero is camping out at the motel, not that his presence will stop any illegal activities.

Zane is a nutcase with a list of rival gangs lining up to kill him and Dylan is injured protecting Zane. Dylan meets the big boss, Jodi Wilson. Raise your hands if you think Dylan will sleep with Jodi. Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

On the bright side, Norma is making friends with the right people… or is she. Let’s drop into the scenic town of White Pine Bay and check on the wacky doings of the Bates family.

Gilbert Checks into the Bates Motel


I wish I could be a fly on the wall at the Bates Motel because there’s never a dull moment. What with Norman obsessing over Miss Watson’s death and Norma’s fight against the bypass, episode one was all about Norma’s new outlook on life. But we all know the good times won’t last… not if the townsfolk have their way. With four new characters added to season 2, what shenanigans will Norma and Norman get themselves into? Let’s find out together after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
