'Reign' recap: For king or country

All I can say is that I’m very happy that I live in the 21st Century, and that my future husband will likely not own a castle with some sort of lock tower. And let’s be honest: Even if he did, he’d never have the power to lock me away in it (because, you know, equality and stuff).

That being said, I’m not totally mad at Francis right now. Is he looking out for France? Of course. Is he looking out for Mary? Yes. Is he still a teenager with a ridiculous amount of responsibility? Always. Let’s dig in!

'Arrow' recap: It's not easy being green

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t seen the April 16 episode of Arrow, stop reading now!

Well, that was an action-packed welcome back to Starling City! We have a lot to talk about, but first, I have to say that the moment I’m still hung up on from this episode was that maneuver where Oliver successfully flipped Felicity over the stairwell and they somehow both landed on their feet like they were cats or something. Is that weird? I mean, I know a lot just happened and major stuff is going down, but was that not incredibly impressive? Am I the only one stuck on this? That’s cool. I’ll move on. READ FULL STORY

'The Originals' recap: Three men and a baby

Welcome back to New Orleans, everybody! I don’t know about you all, but I have missed this place, bloodshed and all. I even missed Thierry’s hats. OK, I especially missed Thierry’s hats, but that’s not important. What is important is the theme of this week’s episode, which was all about picking a side in the war that’s about to come to a head. And nobody — I mean nobody — is messing around. Let’s dig in, shall we?

'Reign' react: For the love of Scotland

Dearest Reign devotees, your usual recapper Samantha Highfill is on a plane right now so I’m filling in to fill you in on how cute Lord Julien looks tonight (very cute) and what kind of sass Queen Catherine has to give us (a lot). So let’s get started! READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' react: 'I am my own worst enemy'

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched that April 2 episode of Arrow, stop reading now!

So Slade’s plan is officially underway, and the first three steps seem to be as follows: 1) Tell Thea that Malcolm Merlyn is her biological father. 2) Hijack a bus full of prisoners in order to expand his army. And 3) Tell Laurel that Oliver is the mother freakin’ Arrow. Yep, that just happened. Let’s get into it!

'Reign' react: Oh, Henry

So Henry is absolutely batshit crazy, and I love it. Let me give you some perspective: Humping a woman out of a window was something a sane person would do compared to the things he’s pulling now. Declaring a servant his new queen? Threatening his own sons? And, most importantly, wielding a sword while attending a wedding completely barefoot? Yep, he’s done them all. At this point, I think Henry’s a bigger monster than The Darkness, but he’s also a much more attractive one, and quite frankly, watching him lose his marbles is nothing if not incredibly entertaining. Let’s do this, shall we?

'Arrow' react: The darkness inside

I sort of wish I were cool enough that if I got three of my exes in the same room, two of them would be related (is that cool?), and two of them would wear masks and know how to kick some serious ass. Unfortunately for me, three of my exes in one room would mean a bit more witty banter and a lot less leather. But that’s what happens when you don’t live in Starling City, I suppose. And in case you didn’t catch the episode and am wondering which three exes I’m talking about, tonight marked the return of Helena Bertinelli, who was later joined by the lovely Lance sisters. Let’s get to it!

'Reign' react: How much is that candle in the window?

Welcome back to France, where being a royal is as difficult as it is sexy, and there are two ways to die: Either The Darkness gets you, or Henry kills you after (or during) sex. I don’t know about you all, but if I had to go, I would choose option B every time (and maybe twice). Then again, The Darkness only kills those who see it, so perhaps I would just shut my eyes and go hang out with Leith. But enough about me, let’s get down to business! READ FULL STORY

Highs and lows of 'The 100' series premiere

The CW’s latest drama with attractive teens is a post-apocalyptic tale about 100 (hot) delinquents who get ousted from their space home by really horrible adults, then sent to Earth to see if the once radiation-soaked planet is inhabitable again. What unfolds is a Lord of the Flies type rebellion: The teens attempt to establish their own society and cut off communication with their leaders on the Ark (the name they use for their space station home) because, Dude, they sent us here without knowing if it was safe and were totally cool with us dying. So, like, GFY. 

Not all the teens think that way, though. Some of them, like Wells (Eli Goree), whose dad (Isaiah Washington) is Chancellor, and Clarke (Eliza Taylor), the daughter of space doc Abby (Paige Turco), keep in mind the implications of severing communications with the Ark. (If all of their health monitors indicate death, they say, no one will want to come back for them.)

Further complicating matters is the fact that it seems Earth’s newest residents are not alone. There’s something lurking about in the forests where the teens were dropped, and judging by their first encounter, they’re not friendly. And, frankly, that’s exciting. In fact, the introduction of these mysterious beings was one of the best parts of episode 1, which is why they made my list of highs and lows below:

'Arrow' react: Dig(gle) a little deeper

As far as I’m concerned, the more Diggle, the better. And tonight’s episode reminded me why that’s the case. And when you add in a tearful Ollie and the Suicide Squad? Oh yeah. I’m one happy viewer. Here’s what went down: READ FULL STORY
