Westworld: Vanishing Point

“It was self-knowledge that drew you to the park in the first place. Be careful what you wish for.”

This is possibly the most ambiguous episode of the show thus far. Even more than most, it leaves us wondering what about consciousness is true. What is real?

Cloak & Dagger: Suicide Sprints

“Just control what we can control, OK?”

Cloak & Dagger continues it's slow burn toward revealing the exact nature of both our heroes' powers and how all of this ties together.

It's fascinating to watch how they're pacing this show, actually, since it seems to be deliberately paced like a Netflix show, despite the fact that the episodes are being released weekly. It's a brave decision, but it runs the risk of alienating viewers by keeping things too opaque for too long.

Good thing the episode is fascinating and gorgeously shot, then.

Supergirl: Battles Lost and Won

Alura: “Sometimes the thing we thought we’d never do, the thing that goes against our very core, is the one thing that we must do.”

An episode that follows many plot threads – and ties them up while starting others – occasionally in rather odd ways.

Legion: Chapter 19

"Whatever happened to 'God loves the sinners best?'"

Well, I guess Legion actually went there. After a season of teasing, they actually followed through.

Star Trek Deep Space Nine: Defiant

It doesn't look it at first, but in a manner of speaking this is a game-changing episode.

Farscape: Coup by Clam

And now, on Farscape...

Before this series gets all dramatic once more, we pause for this little romp on another strange and far out planet.

iZombie: Mac-Liv-Moore

“I came to slay I'm the real Renegade! Pick up where Mama left off, run with a pack of dogs!”

Opting for a lighter investigation that usual, 'Mac-Liv-Moore' uses a deluded white rapper's brain as fuel for more light-hearted side action, as the episode's main focus falls on the wider narratives. Despite being plagued with potential ways to derail itself, the episode manages to cut through a lot of interesting story beats, with a few laughs along the way.

The Outer Limits: The Man Who Was Never Born

"Beauty is always on the edge of being lost."

A historian from the future tries to change the fate of the earth, and things do not go well.

The Originals: The Kindness of Strangers

“We all make each other miserable.”

What is family for if not for making each other miserable? Especially true for The Mikaelsons. Either busy cutting each other down, building each other up or avenging each other. Never a dull moment.

Newsflash: Lucifer rescued by Netflix!

We've just learned that Netflix has rescued Lucifer. TVLine says that we'll be getting a ten-episode season four.

Woo hoo! Season three had been sort of plodding along, but the last two episodes of the season were amazing and I've been dying to know what happens next. So I'm a happy camper. (Let me clarify that I'm talking about "Quintessential Deckerstar" and "A Devil of My Word," not the two episodes released after the cancellation.) I'm also already fantasizing about the possibility of Lucifer unleashed, as in less censorship.
