Cult- You’re Next (1×01)

Published

on


“Sometimes these things just snap right off.”
I decided to give this new CW show, Cult, a try and I have mixed feelings. Basically it’s a show within a show, which has potential of becoming to serialized and confusing. Tuesday’s premiere did not debut to positive ratings drawing in a mere 950,000 viewers. Pathetic. In all honesty, the show probably deserved much better.

Jeff, whom we know is a reporter at some crappy magazine after he got fired from The Washington Post for fabricating sources in a story and imprisoning six guilty police officers, meets up with his brother Nate, who is a dedicated follower of the show The Cult that airs on The CW. Yes, Cult on The CW is a show in the show thats called Cult and airs on The Cw. Neat right? Self promotion at its finest. His brother has a past with drugs, so Jeff kind of blows him off thinking that he’s just paranoid again. Nate leaves him with a contact to Meriam and some glasses.

While we follow Jeff to the WB studios where he meets Skye, a researcher on the show thats interested in the fan base that actually believes that once you get into this show the things actually start happening. Their like a cult following cultivated by the cult leader Billy Grimm. There is a little cafe that people go to, to watch the show and do research to dig deeper into their obsession. People dress up like the characters in the show and mimic what those characters do. Its really some kind of mind control thing. Well anyways, Skye and Jeff track down one of these places where people do secret meets and Jeff finds Miriam here. Before he can get any answers she utters the phrase, “sometimes these things just snap right off” which is a really popular phrase used in the show and by the people associated with the show in real life. What the phrase really means, no one knows but its used right before people die.
Well, these events lead Jeff to the police officer, who calls him out on his Washington Post firing and that he’s suspiciously everywhere they go. At the end of the episode it is revealed that she has a cult tattoo, so she is a supporter or she organizes the whole thing. Also, there is some girl, that works at the meeting place cafe, that is eyeing one of the guys working on the show. When he leaves the set, she stumbles on him and that red car from the show pulls up and kidnaps him. This show has me wondering if the viewers of this show just cannot tell the difference between reality and fiction or if there are subliminal messages sent to the viewers?

Well Jeff it persistent on finding his brother, so he finds some DVD that he pops into his computer that basically puts all his information online and makes him accessible to the cult cyberspace. He gets a call from his brother, who is so mad that he put the dvd in and that he shouldn’t come find him, before the call is interrupted again. Than Billy Grimm (the cult leader) pops up and says, You’re next. What does that even mean? I mean Billy Grimm gives me the chilly willy’s but is he really involved with the crimes being committed outside of the show or is he just an actor? How much potential does this show really have to grasp peoples attention before it gets way too confusing and complicated??

Memorable Quotes

  • Billy: I don’t prey on anyone. I seek out no one.
  • Billy: They come because they want to belong. To be part of my unconditional love.
  • Marti/Kelly: He wants me out here tonight. He’s never forgiven me for leaving
  • Billy: You were obsessed with me than and you’re obsessed with me now.
  • Billy: But you have no idea how many followers are out there now.
  • Skye: Its not like any other show. It totally gets under your skin.

Torrey DeVitto, Yaya DaCosta Leaving ‘Chicago Med’ Ahead of Season 7

Chicago Med Lemons and Lemonade

Someone rush over a crash cart because this news has crushed us!

Chicago Med is losing two incredible cast members ahead of the NBC drama’s seventh season. 

Torrey DeVitto, who plays doctor Natalie Manning, and Yaya DaCosta, who plays nurse April Sexton, will not be returning in the fall, per Deadline.

DaCosta is leaving to lead Lee Daniels’ Our Kind of People, which nabbed a straight-to-series order at FOX. 

DeVitto, from Pretty Little Liars and One Tree Hill fame, will star in an upcoming indie film titled Skelly. 

She even confirmed the news to her fans on social media, writing: “Well, looks like the cat is out of the bag…All good things must come to an end.

It has been such an honor and pure joy to bring Dr. Natalie Manning to life for all of you on Chicago Med for the past 6 seasons. But it is now time for her and me to bow out and say goodbye.

Thank you to all you loyal watchers who adored her as much as I did.

I can’t wait to share what’s to come with all of you. New adventures await!”

Both DeVitto and DaCosta have appeared in the #OneChicago franchise since Med’s premiere in 2015.

Per the publication, their contracts were up at the end of season 6 and both actresses decided not to renew. 

The rest of the cast ( S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, Oliver Platt as Dr. Daniel Charles, Nick Gehlfuss as Dr. Will Halstead, Brian Tee as Dr. Ethan Choi and Marlyne Barrett as nurse Maggie Lockwood) is expected to return pending contract negotiations.

All three Chicago shows were renewed for three additional seasons back in 2020 — Chicago Fire through season 11, Chicago PD through season 10, and Chicago Med through season 8.

The current storylines have seemingly been setting up for the actresses’ exits as Manning found herself in hot water after stealing medication to help her mother, while April decided to return to nursing school. 

We’ll definitely miss DeVitto and DaCosta, but we wish them the best of luck in future projects!
