Nothing gets past Rio. 

Beth made that very clear on Good Girls Season 4 Episode 7, so why did they not cover all their bases when introducing him to Carolyn?

With the FBI closing in on Beth and snooping around her affairs, he was bound to be on high alert. 

And while Carolyn (Phoebe) did a great job of selling her character — I thoroughly enjoyed her “mommy” training and how excited she was to be joining their crew — they were a little too pushy with trying to get Rio to talk at the diner. 

And not only were they pushy, but when he suggested they go to her house, they were all super tense and fidgety. Just give it away why don’t you!?

Rio knows when something feels off. He’s also very much aware that Beth is capable of pulling one over him. 

The FBI should’ve been several steps ahead of him and had a faux house, a pretend family, pictures, the whole shabang ready just in case.

Right now, as it stands, they don’t deserve to catch Rio; he continues to outsmart everyone and proving that he knows the game all too well. 

The season is finally back to filling audiences with the same anxiety as we felt back in season 1. 

Beth and Rio are both unpredictable, and as they’re tip-toeing around each other, it’s definitely raising my blood pressure once again (in a good way, of course). 

But now that everything’s on the table, Beth has to make a choice: does she side with the FBI or do her alliances lie with Rio?

As she explained, she’s damned either way. 

She’s gotten herself into a mess that she won’t be able to clean up so easily. 

The FBI can no longer protect her since Rio knows she was planning to turn on him. And if she sides with Rio and his family’s criminal enterprise, she continues to put herself, her friends, and her family in danger. 

Good Girls Review – Oops… They Did It Again (4×06)

And either way, she seems to lose out on the chance of starting a new life in Nevada. 

I didn’t know how much messier Beth’s life could get, but Good Girls Season 4 is proving that it’s entirely possible to continue digging a deeper hole for yourself. 

Beth also got called out for not disclosing her sexual relationship with Rio to the FBI, but it wasn’t just the FBI who was shocked by her “improvising.”

Both Annie and Ruby couldn’t believe that after everything Rio put them through, Beth went there with him again. 

And no one seemed to care that she only did it as a means of distraction and that’s likely because no one actually believes it either. 

No matter how messed up things get between Beth and Rio, the chemistry and sexual tension are still there. 

You can hate and like someone at the same time, and I think that’s the case for Beth when it comes to Rio. On some level, she has grown fond of him and respects him, and the feeling is mutual, which is what makes this partnership so intriguing and complex. 

What do you think Beth will do? And what would you do in her situation?

As it stands, I think she’s better off sticking with Rio because that’s not an enemy you want to make!

Ruby and Stan are getting into even more hot water with their designer purse business. 

I know Stan wanted to do this on his own and keep Beth out of it, but now that Gene won’t let them out of the “lucrative” business, they’re going to need all the help they can get pushing these fakes. 

If you think about it, this might be the perfect opportunity for everyone to wash the fake cash, but also to make money. And you know they all need it even Gregg and Nancy. 

13 Steamiest Moments Between Rio and Beth on ‘Good Girls’

After Gregg suggested pulling Ben out of private school under the guise that he was worried he’d become a spoiled and privileged asshole, Annie figured out that they were having money problems. 

It’s a fun twist because Gregg, and more specifically Nancy, have always acted as though they were superior to Annie and that her money problems were of her own making. 

And while that may be true to some extent, it’s also a lot harder to dig yourself out of a hole once you’re in it. 

Gregg and Nancy are going to learn that the hard way. And I don’t think they’d be above doing something shady in order to get their finances back in order. 

Personally, I’d love to see this money laundering/ fake handbag business become something that everyone becomes invested in because it proves that no one is above a get quick cash scheme. 

It would just elevate the stakes.

Not to mention Annie, Gregg, and Nancy have the perfect platform to sell these dupes at Ben’s school! Rich parents = sold handbags. 

The storyline is almost writing itself.

The Resident Review – Chastain’s Most Eligible Bachelor (5×08)

The Resident Review Old Dogs, New Tricks Season 5 Episode 8

The lesson from The Resident Season 5 Episode 8? It’s never too late to change. 

And change came for Chastain’s best in a variety of different ways. 

Dr. Pravesh dealt with a corrupt system that wouldn’t offer help to a retired couple struggling to take care of themselves. 

Pravesh has always wanted to change the system, but now, more than ever, he wants to do something meaningful. 

It’s what pushed him to talk to Kit Voss about embracing clinical trials. 

He wants to be part of the solution that ensures there is adequate treatment for those who really need it. 

George and Celeste were a sweet couple, but it was clear the weight of taking care of her husband was getting to her. Eventually, it was important for Celeste to prioritize her own health in order to ensure that he would also be taken care of in the long run. 

I’m always supportive of a woman advocating for herself. Though I’ll be honest, I love that we also got to see the other side of the coin with George explaining that he hates that his needs made his wife sick. I’m sure it’s not easy for a man, who is always considered the caretaker, to put all that pressure solely on his wife. 

Kit hired DeSoto to coach Chastain’s self-proclaimed Kings of Surgery, and their egos were definitely a little bruised. 

Bell and AJ spent much of the surgery gassing themselves up, so it was definitely painful to learn that Kit thought they could use coaching. 

Even worse — DeSoto had a lot of notes about how they could improve, which meant that their technique wasn’t flawless after all. 

While Bell was a little more adaptive, AJ pushed back on a lot of DeSoto’s suggestions because he felt he knew better. 

However, once Bell applied the notes and excelled in surgery, AJ acknowledged that he probably could be more strategic in surgery.

And, if I’m interpreting the situation correctly, he also asked DeSoto to stick around to continue challenging him because he has a huge crush on her, right?

There was also Dr. Conrad better known as the hospital’s most eligible bachelor.

All the nurses were fawning over him, and while he definitely noticed, he wasn’t really comfortable with it.

It’s been years since Nic’s death, but Conrad still doesn’t feel like it’s the right time to move on.

However, with Billie’s blessing, he did indulge Marion, a daycare worker that Gigi loved.

Am I crazy or did it seem like Billie regretted giving Conrad the green light to move on from Nic because she has feelings for him?

That would be complicated. But she’s right that Nic wouldn’t want Conrad to be alone forever — she would want him and Gigi to find someone that could make them complete again.

Plus, I love how he manages to keep Nic’s memory alive. Gigi may not have known her mother, but you’d never tell by the way she talks about her mommy.

Admittedly, I don’t know if I’m ready for Conrad to move on mainly because I was so devoted to his relationship with Nic, but Marion seems like a really great person with a good heart.

If Conrad is going to move on, it better be with someone worthy of his and Gigi’s heart!

Riverdale Review – La Llorona (6×02)

Published

Riverdale Review Ghost Stories Season 6 Episode 2

Did I just watch an episode of Nancy Drew on Riverdale?

It almost felt like “Ghost Stories” was the perfect crossover opportunity to bring our favorite supernatural Horsehoe Bay detective to Rivervale. 

But don’t be fooled — Betty, Toni, and Cheryl did a fine job handling La Llorona. 

You have to give it up for the series for embracing Latin American culture for this one, while also making a poignant point about the sacrifices of motherhood. 

La Llorona was summoned by Darla, a Ghoulie, whose son was accidentally killed by Toni. 

The ghostly spirit, who was drowned in Sweetwater River along with her babes, was coming for the soul of Baby Anthony, however, Toni didn’t think her innocent son should pay the price for her mistakes, so she sacrificed herself by taking on La Llorona’s suffering. 

As she descended underwater, she handed baby Anthony to Betty and urged her to protect him, which is fitting considering La Llorona erased Betty’s pregnancy. 

It’s funny that these women are devoted to finding a murderer when just last week, they willingly sacrificed Archie to make the maple trees more fruitful. 

Honestly, this show gets weirder and weirder. 

And since it’s set in Rivervale, which I’m guessing is simply an alternative universe of Riverdale, it’s hard to really get invested in any of the storylines. 

It seems like a cheat to introduce and get away with the wackiest storylines. 

Admittedly, it did feel weird watching an episode without Archie, but the hour was so jam-packed, he was barely missed. 

The series claimed its second victim with Toni, so it doesn’t seem like many of our favorites will live to see another day by the time the five-episode event is finished. 

Tabitha and Jughead dealt with their own relationship woes as they found out that they were living in the apartment plagued by a couple’s murder-suicide. 

When they discovered a hidden room, they seemingly unleashed the couple’s spirits and began turning on each other. Tabitha wanted to bash Jughead’s head in on a few occasions, but thankfully, she stopped herself and realized that their relationship was stronger than murder. 

Good for them, I guess?

As for Ronnie and Reggie, well, their storyline felt pretty forced. Reggie bought back the car he had in high school in hopes of reliving the glory days. 

That was fine and dandy until Veronica realized that Bella was a tribute to his driver’s ed teacher who was fired for having inappropriate relations with students. 

Reggie denied the whole thing, and Ronnie felt terrible for smashing his car considering his father just died. 

However, it turns out Reggie lied about the abusive relationship? Or, at least, it seems like it.

It’s unclear why this was such an important storyline to tell, but I’m also at the point where it doesn’t seem like any of these storylines hold any merit at all. 

Did Riverdale sell you on its ghost stories? Or do you think it should be left to the professionals?

La Brea Review – Ella’s Identity is Revealed (1×09)

La Brea Review Father & Son Season 1 Episode 9

La Brea has figured out the formula for keeping audiences invested. 

But, unfortunately, as with every time-traveling show, it’s also gotten increasingly complex. To make sense of the shocking developments, you have to keep in mind the one thing Dr. Rebecca told the sky people in the clearing: time is a circle. 

The past, the present, and the future are all happening at once, somehow. 

And the rule of thumb remains true — if you change something in the past, it ripples down into the present and ultimately, the future. 

After the revelation that young Isaiah is actually Gavin, much of the episode focused on Eve, Levi, and Josh’s plan to find Isaiah and safely get him to the top of a mountain that housed a sinkhole connecting to 1988. 

Yep, that’s a thing. 

Of course, they couldn’t just outright tell Isaiah that he was Eve’s husband in the future, but it’s a big ask to want a kid to leave his home and jump into a portal that takes him to a different timeline. 

Unfortunately, they didn’t have a choice since Izzy and Josh’s lives were on the line. 

And though they never said it outright, my guess is that Gavin would also cease to exist or would at least exist in a different reality if Isaiah didn’t go through the sinkhole. 

The mission has now changed from “how are they getting out of this time period” to “how can they save Eve’s whole family while hopefully saving themselves in the process.”

While we don’t know how this is going to pan out, their fate doesn’t only hinge on Isaiah/Gavin. 

In this week’s shocking twist, it’s revealed that Ella is Lily… yes, Veronica’s Lily, the one that was kidnapped. 

Now, if you’re like me, you’re probably wondering how this is possible. 

After all, Lily fell through the sinkhole with Veronica and Aaron (who was killed moments into his time in 10K B.C) from 2021. 

How does she exist in both forms as an adult and a kid in the present?

It’s possible I’m missing something or I just don’t understand the idea of traveling through space and time. 

Either way, in the present day, Gavin, Izzy, and Dr. Sophia have dedicated themselves to convincing Ella, who was found wandering on the side of the road with Isaiah in 88, that she’s also from 10K B.C. 

It’s a wild thing to tell someone, and she’s obviously hesitant to believe it, so Gavin breaks into the dig site to find proof. 

Eventually, Ella taps into some memories from her time in the past and digs up a map that we see Dr. Rebecca give her. 

The map includes all the sinkholes and the exact dates they opened/ are set to open, including one in Seattle that is scheduled for the following day. 

Rebecca stole this map from Silas, Isaiah’s grandfather, so it’s really suspicious. 

La Brea Review Father & Son Season 1 Episode 9

Why does he have this in his possession?

I’m deeply intrigued by Isaiah and Silas and want to know more about them. How did they get here? Where did they come from? Why is Silas so hellbent on keeping Isaiah in this timeline?

And how does he know Rebecca?

Considering all the information Rebecca has and the fact that Silas recognized her, I’m still running with my theory that Rebecca is Gavin’s mother. 

It’s also a mystery as to how Rebecca was able to escape this time period, though, I agree with Sam and Riley — if there’s a sinkhole to 1988 then there has to be a sinkhole back to 2021. 

The option to go to 1988 was given to the sky people in the clearing, and while Veronica and Lily decided to take it, I also wonder what that will do if someone who existed in the 80s arrives in that time period. Is that possible? And how does their arrival in 1988 change the present?

Scott, on the other hand, decided to stay behind to unearth more mysteries in 10K B.C. After finding a cow, he saw that it was branded with a UPC code which means that more sky people are likely not too far behind. 

I can’t believe no one else wanted to help Scott scout for the cow. She’s a source of dairy and meat, it was the only logical thing to do! 

There were a lot of moving parts to the episode. Elsewhere, Ty and Para kissed in the midst of all the action, and it was so cute. 

I love Ty, so I hope that his illness is cured by traveling back in time. Plus, I’m seriously shipping them as a couple. 

Josh also found out about Levi and Eve’s relationship from Isaiah — talk about awkward — and confronted Levi about it after they were taken prisoner by Silas. 

Honestly, Josh has every right to be mad, but he shouldn’t just hold it against Levi. His mother was just as responsible. And, let’s be real, even he’s aware of how disappointing Gavin was during those times. 

He might be taking “father of the year” now, but that wasn’t always the case. 

At least now Gavin’s visions have proven useful, and since he knows where he comes from, he no longer has to wonder about his childhood or who his family was. Losing his family to the sinkhole might have been the worst thing to happen to him, but it has also allowed him to fill in the pieces about his past. 

And hopefully, he keeps filling them in. 

What did you think of the episode? Were you shocked that Ella turned out to be Lily?

Do you want to know more about Gavin’s past? Who is Rebecca Aldridge and why is she so connected to all of this? Do you think anyone should travel back to 1988?

And now that Gavin, Izzy, and Sophia have the blueprints to the sinkholes that are set to open up, can they intervene and stop them before more people get swallowed up?

Can they use the map to reverse-engineer a way to bring everyone back home?

Will Isaiah make it to the mountain so that Josh and Izzy are spared? Will Eve find a way to save Josh and Levi from Silas?
