How To Get Away With Murder S3Ep2: There Are Worse Things Than Murder Review/Recap

  • Starring: Viola Davis, Alfred Enoch, Karla Souza, Jack Falahee, Charlie Weber, Aja Naomi King, Billy Brown, Liza Weil, Matt McGorry, Conrad Ricamora.
  • Network: ABC
  • Genre: Crime-Drama

Annalise (Viola Davis) may now be facing even more danger now that Frank has killed the hitman she sent after him, and Nate can not track him. On top of the possible threat Frank brings, the school board has decided it be best if Annalise be suspended from campus until the perpetrator behind the flyers is caught. It comes at no surprise that Annalise denied their ‘offer’, and went on about her day as if they were nothing but gum beneath her feet. Which I suspect is how she sees everyone. Except for Wes (Alred Enoch), whom she asks to move in with her, due of loneliness. Why wouldn’t she just ask her boyfriend to move in? Wouldn’t that be less awkward?

Laurel (Karla Souza) can’t let Frank go, and refuses to except it. But when Bonnie (Liza Weil) gets a hold of Laurel’s phone records, it raises suspicion that Laurel may actually know where Frank is. When they learn that Frank is [possibly] listening to Laurel’s messages, Bonnie, and Annalise lay a trap for Frank, having Laurel call him (for the umpteenth time) and leave a message, begging him to come back, and that she’s loves him.

Just when there seemed to be hope that Oliver (Conrad Ricamora) and Connor (Jack Falahee) where still going to stay together, despite of what happened in last weeks episode, all hope is crushed, as Oliver pushes Connor away even farther (even though he was staying pretty close this episode. Mix signals!). Looking for help, Connor goes to Michaela (Aja Naomi King) for a place to stay, and learns of Michaela, and Asher’s (Matt McGorry) secret.

Then there’s the ending that gave one new detail has to what, or what might have happened. Annalise is being arrested as a suspect, and whispers in Oliver’s ear to erase everything that is on the phone, as the police lead her away. There’s still no telling who the dead body might be, but both Annalise, and Oliver (though Annalise’s emotion could be for show) are in distraught. Is it possible that the dead body could be Connor? Fingers crossed it’s a lesser, none too important character. But what are the chance we aren’t going to get our hearts ripped out?

Gotham S3Ep2: Burn The Witch Review/Recap

  • Starring: Ben McKenzie, David Mouza, Robin Lord Taylor, Cory Michael Smith, Donal Logue, Camren Bicondova, Sean Pertwee, Erin Richardson
  • Network: Fox
  • Genre: Fiction, Drama, DC Comics

Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) is now the voice of the people of Gotham. Rallying them together to help find, and destroy Fish Mooney, and the monsters Strange created, and let escape. Jim (Ben McKenzie) stills has Valerie (Jamie Chung) attached to his back, and can’t seem to shake her. Especially now that her source, who just so happened to be Selina, has gone off the grid, and she no longer has the in, to finding Fish Mooney herself. Needing Jim, she persuades him to join the cause, constantly bring up the $1 Million dollars hanging over Mooney’s head.

Bruce (David Mouza) finally meets the woman behind Indian Hill, Hugo Strange, and behind the take over of his company. However the two come to terms, but in all fairness, it’s Madame who comes out ahead. In exchange for Madame, and her people to give Bruce back his company, he must let go of his investigation to search for his parents killer, and the investigation on Indian Hill.

Fish Mooney (Jada-Pinkett Smith) is in desprite need of Hugo Strange’s help, and uses her power of manipulation to enlist Harvey (Donal Logue) in her search for the Arkham doctor. With her monsters to assist her, they easily over power the officers guarding Strange, and Fish practically begs for Strange (B.D. Wong) to cure her.

Soon Mooney, and her army of monsters find themselves surround by not only the GCPD, but also Penguin and his Gotham citizen lynch mob, looking to bring Fish down.

In order to rescue Harvey from Mooney, Jim makes a deal with her, allowing her an escape through the back forest, with Strange, away from the awaiting mobsters. But what’s to say that no one will see the duo run out the back? Jim backs a secret call the Penguin alerting him about what’s about to happen, and offers Penguin the chance to take out Fish himself.

But the plan backfires when Penguin, and Fish meet face to face. Quoting what Strange had told her earlier, Fish explains to Penguin that the reason she never killed was because of what he’s become now. A strong powerhouse in Gotham, and it is that she helped create, ‘The Penguin’, that she couldn’t bring herself to kill him so long ago. Just how Strange couldn’t bring himself to kill of his experiements. Neither can kill of their own creations.

Being hit right in the feels, Penguin lets Fish, and Strange escape into the forest. Did Fish really mean what she said, or did she simply say it in order to save herself?

Though kind of surprising that Penguin actually let Fish go, after all the rallying he did to try and kill her, what wasn’t surprising in the least, was when Jim, and Valerie finally hooked up. I could see that coming from the moment they met.

And right when Jim finds a new romance, quests who steps off the train, and returning to Gotham. Lee (Morena Baccarin). It seems Jim has a list of ladies at his disposal that he can pick from now a days. There’s the crazy ex-fiancé, the newer ex-fiancé, and the hot new reporter. Who will Jim choose?

An interesting, and new development in last nights episode is that, we have a new Poison Ivy (Maggie Geha). An older Ivy, who is already showing a great love for plants. Bashing a guy over the head with a pot when he throws a plant in the garbage, instead of working harder to keep it alive. How longer before we see her display her powers?

Catch Gotham Monday nights on CTV/FOX at 8PM.

How To Get Away With Murder S3Ep1: We’re Good People Now Review/Recap

  • Starring: Viola Davis, Karla Souza, Alfred Enoch, Jack Falahee, Billy Brown, Liza Weil, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry, Conrad Ricamora, Charlie Weber
  • Network: ABC
  • Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery

Someone is going around campus, and taunting Annalise (Viola Davis) with posters labelled “killer”. We could try to narrow down who would do such a thing, but after two seasons, it’s pretty easy to say that Annalise has built herself quite the list of candidates. So the mysterious messages can be anyone. Perhaps one of her angry students? Or an unhappy ex-client?

However it’s not the accusatory posters that are landing Annalise in hot water with the President of the school, but that five of her students are struggling with her class. And it’s no surprise that it’s the five that have been with her from the beginning. But being the clever manipulator she is, she quickly shuts down the President’s decision to transfer her from professor, to researcher. Instead, Annalise wants to create a pro bono class.

Annalise isn’t the only one however who’s got problems (and this is only episode 1!). Oliver (Conrad Ricamora) is looking to get hired by Annalise. On top of that has confessed to Annalise (who later told Connor) that he cancelled Connor’s acceptance into Stanford, and also hacked into their system to make sure Connor isn’t contacted by them again. Feeling racked with guilt over lying to Connor, and the changes he’s made has a person, decides to end things with Connor (Jack Falahee).

Laurel (Karla Souza) still isn’t over Frank, even though she claims to be, and is a little hurt that Wes (Alfred Enoch) keeps blowing her off at every turn. Though after what happened to his newly found father, and Frank’s involvement, Wes’ reasoning isn’t entirely unwarranted.

Asher (Matt McGorry) and Michaela (Aja Naomi King) seemed to have held on to their secret affair, and so have Annalise and Nate (Billy Brown).

However this wouldn’t be How to Get Away with Murder, if at least one attempted, or successful murder didn’t take place. Frank (Charlie Weber) is a wanted man. For what he did in his past, and for what he, may, have done to Wes’ father. But Annalise has put a hit on him, and Frank’s little transformation wasn’t enough to stop Annalise’s hitman from finding him. But stalling may have caused Annalise, one, the chance to enact revenge, or two, to make an enemy out of someone she doesn’t want as an enemy. Especially one who knows everything that she, and the others have done.

Just before the episode ends, Annalise is seen breaking through the police barricade, orders the paramedic to show her the body of the person they pulled out of Annalise’s house, which is engulfed in flames. A death of someone, who has Annalise in hysterics. But who could it be?

The Girl on the Train (Novel) Review

  • Title: The Girl On The Train
  • Author: Paula Hawkins
  • Publisher: TransWorld Publishers; division of Randon House 
  • Publication Date: January 6, 2015
  • Edition: paperback
  • Pages: 316
  • Special Features: None
  • Price: $24.95
  • ISBN: 978-0-385-68231-2
  • Genre: Thriller

I really enjoyed this book. At first I thought it was a little slow, but it picked up fast. So fast, that I could have finished this book in one day, had I not read the first 25 pages the night before. The Girl On The Train is one of those books where you will not want to put it down, because you will be desprite to know what happened to both the girl on the train, and the mystery that draws her in.

I found it really hard to sympathize with the character Anna, not because she was ill written, but because she was so well delivered. The type of character/person she is just made me so irritated, and angry because she was unsympathetic to Rachel for what she had done to her. I found Anna to be rude, insulting, and garnered no pity, or sympathy from me. All this made her a great character to read, and root against. Her unlikeness was well written.

Overall rating: 5/5 stars.

Would I Recommend: Yes. It is a non-stop mystery, thriller.
