Person of Interest: Prophets

"Sometimes it's better not to know. But not always."

Perfection.

The Originals: Every Mother's Son

"Every story needs a wicked witch. It'll be all the more satisfying when we melt her."

This show does tea parties and family dinners better than I could've thought possible. Did anyone even eat? And why didn't I see anything cajun? They're in New Orleans for crying out loud.

Supernatural: Soul Survivor

"That line that we thought was so clear between us and the things that we hunted ain't so clear, is it?"

And it's a big old game of bunker Hide 'n Seek.

The Flash: Things You Can’t Outrun

“The hardest thing you’re going to have to face is not some monster out there with powers. It’s gonna be that feeling of uselessness when you can’t do anything."

This is an episode about that feeling of uselessness, and what made our characters what they are today. We’re confronted with a universal truth: history repeats. It's how we deal with it which changes.

Sleepy Hollow: The Weeping Lady

Ichabod: "Katrina sent a bird bearing a message for me."
Abbie: "I'm assuming that's not some Colonial euphemism?"

Ichabod Crane, Colonial heartbreaker.

The Walking Dead: Strangers

Gabriel: “Nowadays people are just as dangerous as the dead, don’t you think?”
Daryl: “No, they’re worse.”

This episode gave our group and us a breather. After the death and destruction at Terminus our group reforms and they give each other and themselves a fresh start.

Star Trek The Next Generation: When the Bough Breaks

"Our children are not for sale at any price!"

Disaster! Wesley Crusher is kidnapped. Stop smiling, it's a serious matter.

Scandal: Like Father, Like Daughter

I know you're very busy, sir, but it's vital I show you
these pictures of me and Olivia on vacation.
"Every girl is someone's daughter."

It was a mixed bag of an episode.

Scandal: Inside the Bubble

I'll take the coffee, but if it's not soy, I'm having you killed.
"Everything is colder."

To quote myself from later in this review, "Well, it could've been worse."

Doctor Who: Flatline

Al: "Are we really hiding from killer graffiti?"

When I first saw that bald, bearded bloke vanish into the border, I sighed loudly and braced myself for the worst. Was 'Flatline' destined to become this season's 'Fear Her'? Then the quality of the CGI picked up dramatically, and the whole episode was transformed into a classic Russell T. Davies-style romp to the end. Thank goodness for the inaccuracy of first impressions.
