Everyone’s hiding something at the Riviera Grand.
It won’t be long before those secrets and lies start catching up with them like they’ve already begun to on Grand Hotel Season 1 Episode 9.
Santiago is hiding his involvement with Mateo’s “boss,” Mateo is hiding the shame of unintentionally killing his own child, the twins are quite literally hiding their fugitive father, Felix, and Alicia and Danny are hiding their relationship.
Though Alicia considered going public about her relationship with Danny, he immediately shot the idea down because of the other thing he’s hiding: the real reason he’s working as a waiter in the first place.
Danny’s walking a thin line here; he’s trying to be himself and pursue a relationship with a woman he really likes all while not revealing anything real about himself and staying focused on his original mission to find out what happened to his sister.
I’m a huge Danny and Alicia shipper as their relationship — the blend of forbidden love and pulsating chemistry — is intoxicating.
I believe he does have real feelings for her, which complicates everything as he’s forced to be closed-off with her.
There’s a lot wrong with their relationship no matter how steamy.
A huge concern is Alicia’s reaction to Danny saying he’s not comfortable to date publicly.
She never stopped the consider how it would affect his position or what the optics would be after spearheading a “no workplace dating” memo.
Who cares when all they have to do is sign a waiver, right?
When Danny finally made the decision to pursue a public relationship with her, he told Jason that “for the first time he feels like he caught a break.”
He spoke too soon, because guess who was checking into the hotel just mere seconds later?
Heather, the scorned ex-girlfriend.

iZombie – Bye, Zombie (5×12)
Now, that’s how you do a penultimate episode!
The end is near for iZombie, but New Seattle may live to see another day.
The keyword here is may.
Ravi, Clive and Liv teamed up for their most exciting mission to date — to retrieve the tainted Utopium from Atlanta in order to create the cure save New Seattle once and for all.
What seemed like a mission impossible turned into mission possible.
Loaded up on criminal and acrobat brains, they executed their master plan flawlessly with the help of Clive as Clooney.
Every week, this trio delivers outstanding performances, but ‘Bye, Zombie’ was especially demanding and their performances were award-worthy.
I’ve never seen someone master a Russian accent as flawlessly as Ravi did.
But all of their law-breaking and sacrifice mean nothing if Major, who has been ousted as leader of Fillmore Graves by dictator Enzo, doesn’t deliver the second necessary part of the cure, the Max Rager that’s being housed at the Fillmore Graves warehouses.
That’s right — in a stunning twist of events, Major is no longer the most powerful man in Seattle.
With danger looming at every corner, he’s the one with the biggest target on his back.
What made this episode so successful was that the stakes were higher than they’ve ever been.
Our main characters were risking it all and not thinking twice about it.
Even the secondary characters found themselves in unsettling situations as unrest began brewing.
The war that has been teased for much of iZombie Season 5 between humans and zombies finally came to fruition thanks to Durkins and Enzo.
Are you all happy now? You got what you wanted.
Durkins armed her Dead Enders with weapons distributed by General Mills thus provoking the zombies to revolt.
Major wanted to keep the peace and avoid war at all costs, but his level-headed approach didn’t sit well with his team.
Major’s heart was in the right place but he needed to instill some kind of moral in his team.
Many of them betrayed him earlier in the season because they wanted him to have a stronger stance and protect their own kind.
However, Enzo’s idea of fighting terror with terror is only causing panic and chaos.
After their truck hit an explosive, Enzo’s team recruited the remaining Fillmore Graves soldiers and offered them a chance to live and fight for zombie kind.
Sadly, they all turned their backs on Major.
He managed to escape for now, but it’s not looking too good for him.
Considering he agreed to help Liv and Ravi complete the cure and save mankind, it’s very likely that he’s going to die while breaking into Fillmore Graves.
Then, there’s the kiss that should have happened eons ago.
Liv’s relationship with Major has also gone through plenty of phases. Fans have even questioned whether or not these two would ever find their way back to each other.
With everything on the line, Liv and Major finally made their feelings for each other known, which means that there’s a high probability he’ll die in a selfless way.
It would be a shame for Liv to lose yet another boyfriend, but we can’t argue with the numbers.
Major’s also the guy with nine lives. Somehow, after everything he’s been through, he’s still alive. If this is demise, well, he’s already lasted longer than expected.
Liv and Ravi need to create the cure as soon as possible if they want any chance at saving Seattle.
There’s one of two options: the zombies are going to destroy all the inhabitants and run out of brains or the government will nuke the city. Either way, it’s not looking too good.
Enzo’s broadcast proved he’s not going to follow rules like Major — scratching the zombies and demonstrating their new “zombie soldiers” was a pointed way of saying that anything goes.
It’s a major threat to humankind.
While Seattle is quite literally combusting, Blaine’s still got money on his mind.
The poor Freylich kids that he believes are his property are the only cure available at the moment.
Considering zombies are the stronger species, I don’t think there’s much of a market for zombies wanting to turn back into humans.
But I guess that doesn’t matter because for Blaine it’s more about pride.
What makes Blaine such a fantastic villain — listen up, Jane the Virgin and your weak portrayal of Rose, the season’s longest-running villain — is that there are glimpses of good in him.
He’s likable, he’s funny, and at times, reasonable, yet he won’t hesitate to shoot someone point-blank.
It’s a dangerous combo and one that even blindsided poor Peyton.
Peyton seemed to believe in him up until this very last moment when he ambushed her at Renegade’s hiding spot.
It was clear then that there was no getting through to Blaine because he’d already gone off the deep end.
He wanted what’s his; this was his survival mode.
And that doesn’t bode well for Peyton or the kiddos.
What will Blaine do to her?
Will Ravi save her in the knick of time?
And why the hell wasn’t she armed if she was the only lookout for such a controversial figure in Seattle?
With the war between zombies and humans becoming more prevalent than ever, it’s easy to look at the cure as a good idea.
But reality set in when Clive and Liv established that it would mean Liv would no longer be his brain-eating sidekick.
These two were such a dynamic duo, and though Liv’s zombieism initially felt like a burden, she used it for good. She cracked murders and elevated herself as a zombie who helped others by smuggling them into Seattle and saving their lives with a scratch.
What does her life and her relationship with Clive look like post-zombie?
- I’m surprised Ravi didn’t make a replica of the tainted Utopium before sending it off to Saxon at the CDC. It’s unlike him to just trust someone to do what needed to be done.
- Charming Clive really is the Clooney we all needed. Did you see him bust those moves and seduce Darcy?
- I’m truly scared for Dale. Imagine being pregnant in a city filled with monsters who are ready to eat your brain.
- Ravi’s burn to Blaine about being the man that’s going to marry Peyton Charles was surprisingly satisfying.
- I also couldn’t believe that Major wasn’t trying to stop Liv’s mission.
- Ravi in full-rage mode is a sight to behold. He’s been holding out on us.
What did you think of the penultimate episode of iZombie?
Are you ready to say goodbye?
What do you think will happen?
Will Seattle be spared? Will Ravi create the cure? Will Peyton and Ravi get married? Will Liv get her happy ending with Major or will he die?
The Secret of The Good Place’s Biggest Twist
Riverdale Season Finale Breakdown: What the Hell Just Happened?
The Riverdale finale “Survive the Night” was bonkers!
How many Fizzle Rocks did the writers take before putting together that episode?
We’re breaking down all the biggest moments of the season 3 finale below!
Goodbye Gargoyle King and the Black Hood
Early on in the episode, Penelope was revealed as the Game Keeper, which we should have seen coming considering she was the game master during the Midnight Club’s reign. Jughead pieced together the whole puzzle using his impeccable journalistic skills: Penelope, wanting to get revenge on the town who made her a child bride and ignored her pain, encouraged Hal to become a serial killer. Hal saw a glimmer of himself in Chic, so instead of killing him, he recruited him into becoming the Gargoyle King. And one by one, they rid the town of sinners. Oh, and she referred to Chic as Jason because everything stemmed from the pain of losing her son. And thus, all three seasons were connected in a twisted horror film trilogy.
Want to Play a Game?
Penelope sent Archie, Veronica, Jughead and Betty (whom she purchased from The Farm) for one final quest. They were the chosen four because their parents didn’t even console Penelope after her son died (get over yourself!). Betty and Veronica injested poison though they passed the test of selflessness, Jughead fought Chic, Archie fought some dude dressed as a bear, and Betty almost shot and killed her dad. She couldn’t give into the darkness knowing that it would snuff out her light, but Penelope killed Hal and called him a lousy serial killer to begin with.
Escape The Farm
Alice began to realize that something shady was happening inside The Farm when Edgar wouldn’t tell her what happened to Betty. She stole Juniper, handed her off to Cheryl, and helped them escape. She asked Cheryl to promise that she would find Betty and make sure she was safe. And upon arriving at Thornhill, Cheryl did just that by ordering the Serpents and the Pretty Poisons to save the foursome from her mother’s wrath. Also, Nana Rose is the true MVP for turning on her daughter and helping them!
Knowing that The Farm was going to be compromised, Edgar asked Alice to rally up the troops for their expedited ascension. Now, I don’t know if this means the same thing it did in G&G, but I thought that ascension meant to commit suicide. But alas, when Betty & Co. arrived at the SOQM, they found Kevin in a room rocking back and forth surrounded by everyone’s white outfits. He said they left him behind to tell their story, but he seemed rather upset that they didn’t let him ascend because he “wasn’t worthy.” Honestly, count your blessings, Kevin. But where the hell is everyone else? And why would Edgar leave behind a loose end?
The FBI & Alice
In what may be the biggest twist of all, Betty & Jug were approached by an FBI agent who claimed to be their real brother, Charles, and also admitted that Alice was working undercover for the FBI to infiltrate The Farm and bring them down. Apparently, they’ve known all about organ harvesting but somehow didn’t think it was enough to arrest Edgar. And now, they need Betty’s help finding her mother after ascension night. Here’s the thing, I love that Alice didn’t fall for all the Farmie crap, but really, I don’t trust anyone wearing an FBI uniform in Riverdale and I don’t trust anyone with the name Charles.
Hiram Lodge, the Real Big Bad
Sure, the GK & the BH were scary, but you know who’s terrifying? Hiram Lodge. Hiram cannot be outsmarted and he basically controls the whole city. Veronica and Hermione thought they got him after the FBI arrested him but he was placed in his own prison where he’s likely hailed as a God. He also had his minions set up Hermione and has a massive plan for Veronica so she “won’t know what hit her.”
Cheryl, step away from the rotting corpse of your brother. What is happening here? Cheryl was visibly disturbed when she stumbled upon the dug up corpse of Jason, so much so that she ambushed Edgar Evernever. She was also rational enough to realize The Farm was a cultish operation and successfully escaped. So, why is it that she’s reverting to her old brainwashing and sitting back and having a chat with her dead brother like it’s NBD? Cheryl, please don’t.
Friends Forever… But Not in the Future
What is up with that flash-forward scene? And better yet, what the hell happened to Jughead? The final scene of the episode found Betty, Jug, Veronica, and Archie celebrating their victory and wishing for normalcy as they head into their senior year. With the spliced in flash-forward scenes, it’s safe to say their senior year is going to be beyond memorable… but not in a good way. We see Betty, Archie and Veronica sans Jughead, standing by a river in their undergarments covered in blood. Betty urges them to burn Jughead’s hat as they vow to never speak to each again in order not to get caught. But seriously, where is Jughead? Why are they burning his hat? Why are they covered in blood? Why did this have a “I Know What You Did Last Summer” feel to it?
What were your thoughts on the finale?
And what are you looking for to season 4?
