It’s time to rejoin fake 26-year-old Liza. Here is where things stand:
- Liza told Kelsey the truth about her age. Dun Dun Dun!!!!
- Josh was going to propose to Liza (!!!!) until he saw her kissing Charles (Boo!).
- Kelsey broke up with that writer boyfriend we have already forgotten about.
- Liza signed a terrible author to the imprint without Kelsey’s knowledge because said author was blackmailing her about her age.
- Maggie is still awesome.
- Lauren’s adorable doctor boyfriend is moving in with her.
See you tomorrow night, Younger.
After four seasons, Reign and our time with Mary Queen of Scots is over. There was some good and some bad and the best way to get through it all is a pro/con list, so let’s get started.
- After Mary’s death she enters the afterlife to be with Francis again. This was perfection. It had been so long since we’d seen Francis, so it was a nice surprise to see them together again.
- The montage of the last four seasons/Mary’s journey was a nice touch.
- Thanks for the Bash shout out, but it still doesn’t make up for him being gone all season.
- Main thing: Things seems super rushed and lots was left unresolved.
- I appreciate the flash to the future, it is actually what I prefer to see in series finales, but time jumped 21 years and we only saw Mary and Elizabeth. What happened to the other characters? Particularly Catherine who we have been with through this whole journey.
- Also, did Greer and James get together? James clearly raised Prince James as Mary requested. Did Greer help him? Come on, people. What happened to Charles and Henry?
- Who the hell is Margo? Had we been told she exists before?
- Did Claude and Luke make up? So many unanswered questions.
- Once I was done watching, I instantly went to Wikipedia (something I’ve been waiting four years to do) to read about the real Mary Queen of Scots to see just how accurate the show was. Here are the highlights: She did marry Francis and he died two years later. She married Darnely and had a son with him and he was murdered after a fire shortly after James was born (Bothwell was even suspected of the murder). She then married Bothwell right after that. Wish we could have seen her happy with Bothwell, if even for a moment. After all that sexual tension, I think we deserved a kiss. She then spent years in captivity under Elizabeth before she was beheaded at age 44 for plotting to assassinate Elizabeth. So pretty good for an over-dramatized CW show.
The 100 – Jasper and Maya. She was whiny and then she died and he became unbearable.
Archer – Lana and Cryil. Do they make sense to anyone? Sorry but the nerd doesn’t get the hot girl.
Baby Daddy – Riley and Ben. It’s just not right.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – Rebecca and Josh. They just aren’t good together. They’re both too whiny or something. Immature, that’s the word.
Game of Thrones – Jon and Ygritte. My brother and I agree on most time GoT but not this. While I despise Ygritte, he was devastated by her death and the end of her relationship with Jon.
Making History – It’s a moo point (like a cow’s opinion)
Pitch – N/A (ie cancellation)
The Ranch – Colt and Abby. Maybe they made more sense in high school but as adults they aren’t good together.
Riverdale – Frank and Hermoine. Frank, you’re better than that. Oh yeah and you’re both still technically married.
This is Us – Toby and Kate. Sorry I know a lot of people love them, but I just don’t get it.
Timeless – Why?
Underground – Ernestine and that jerk that beats her.
Victoria – Are there couples besides Victoria and Albert? Not really. Just Albert’s brother and that married woman. So guys, you win, by default. Congrats!
Young & Hungry – Josh and Caroline. She sucked, huh?
AMC’s The Son takes place both in 1915 and the mid-1850s, each telling the story of Eli McCullough. As a young boy we see his struggle as Native Americans capture him after killing his family. Then, in 1915, the older Eli (Pierce Brosnan) runs a ranch in south Texas with his sons, daughter-in-law and three grandchildren. Of course things aren’t easy as they are at war with the Mexicans and struggling to keep the ranch running.
If you like family drama, old west, some violence, bad asses riding horses, early America, or racial tension, give it a shot. The season finale airs Saturday at 9/8 c.
