Mel is grappling with the one-year anniversary of Mark’s death, and specifically, how to honor his memory on Virgin River Season 2 Episode 6.
It’s a difficult anniversary because it’s not one that should be celebrated and yet, there’s no point of sulking in sadness and wondering “what could’ve been.”
After some contemplation, she decides to honor Mark with his favorite hobby — sailing. It’s a fitting way to remember him, plus, the scene with Doc and Hope by her side shows that she’s come a long way in the last year. She arrived to Virgin River a broken woman looking to forget about the past, but with the help of her new friends and family, she’s finding ways to face reality and move on.
It’s evident that Mel has started a new chapter in her life. Mark may be gone, but Jack is very much around and he needs her more than ever.
Jack isn’t dealing with his past traumas as well as Mel is, especially after the visit from his war buddies.
His desire to engage in reckless behaviors seems to be Jack’s way of running away from both his past and his future problems. It’s almost as if Jack doesn’t want to grow up and face reality.
It’s a stark comparison to how the other men in his unit have dealt with post-war traumas. None of them are into risking their lives during the “guys weekend” because they have responsibilities that they need to get back to, but Jack has been avoiding those, but it doesn’t mean they’re going away.
Charmaine is still around, she’s still having twins, and the very thought of it leaves him crippled with anxiety and cold sweats.
Jack may not want to talk to anyone, but if he doesn’t take his mental health seriously, he won’t be able to be the father the twins need.
Opening up to Mel was a good first step, and she was able to help him realize that he’s going to be a great father, but he needs to go beyond that and deal with the trauma that’s been haunting him.
Jack’s situation is layered because he’s also dealing with the guilt of Lonergan’s dealt; he’s punishing himself for not being to bring all of his men back, but as Mel points out, it’s an impossible standard to hold himself to.
The only way to move on is for Jack to understand that and forgive himself.
Charmaine isn’t making things easier for him either. All the talk of them being a family and the baby items overflowing in her living room are enough to overwhelm anyone. She needs to tone it down a notch if she wants to make this work at all.
Doc and Hope are officially and publicly back together, finally, but she’s now made an even bigger enemy of Muriel.
Hope was the bigger person and apologized to Muriel about misleading her, but Muriel was most definitely not an innocent bystander as Doc suggested. Her response to Hope proves that despite having so much in common with Doc, there’s a reason why he never wanted to pursue her.
Hopefully, Hope learned her lesson and won’t be meddling with matters of the heart again anytime soon.
Everything about Ricky and Lizzie’s storyline is giving me anxiety. This is now the second time she’s convinced him to break the rules by manipulating him.
Ricky wants her to like him so badly that he’s willing to risk everything for her. And right now, it seems like she’s just toying with him and using him.
He threatened his position at Jack’s bar not only by stealing the alcohol but by not showing up for his shift. Then, he broke his grandmother’s orders and took the car out of town, which would have been fine if he got it back home safely without anyone noticing, except for the fact that they got into a car accident.
It seemed pretty bad, so hopefully no one is severely hurt, but I can see Ricky being blamed for putting Lizzie in danger when, in reality, her careless behavior distracted him.
She’s so toxic that bad news follows her wherever she goes.
Jack made things difficult for Brady by telling Lily the truth about Calvin’s plans for her land. When she refused to sign the contract as previously talked about, it complicated things for Brady gravely, who now has answer to Calvin.
And lastly, is the body that the hikers found in the woods connected to Calvin’s operation? Or could it be Wes’ body?
We’re going to find out. But it doesn’t bode well for the sweet and quiet town of Virgin River now, does it?
Is ‘Bridgerton’s’ Regé-Jean Page Going to be the Next James Bond?
From duke to 007!
If you binge-watched Netflix’s Bridgerton in one sitting, you’re more than familiar with the dashing Regé-Jean Page.
Rumor has it that the breakout star made such an impression on audiences and executives that he’s in the running to be the next James Bond.
British betting firm Ladbrokes has been closely watching 007 predictions in the U.K. ahead of the upcoming No Time to Die premiere, which marks Daniel Craig’s final run as the notorious agent.
And Page is climbing the ranks!
Since the Shondaland series premiere, Page’s odds jumped to 5/1 in the betting after previously being at 40/1 before Christmas.
While Page’s chances of snagging the coveted role are high, he isn’t the only one in the running.
“Tom Hardy still leads the way as favorite, with James Norton close behind in second place. But it really is all to play for in the race for 007 and [Regé-Jean Page] has a great chance if the odds are anything to go by,” Ladbrokes rep Alex Apati told Variety.
“What strengthens RJP’s chances somewhat more is that an announcement feels seemingly imminent [around] Daniel Craig’s replacement, so the timing of ‘Bridgerton’s’ success may well have worked in his favor,” Apati noted.
Fans of the series were quick to “ship” the potential casting with many noting: “If @regejean is the new James Bond… I’ll actually watch a James Bond.”
However, not everyone was convinced with some noting that Page seems to young for the role of the MI6 agent.
To put it in perspective, Page is 31 while Craig was 38 when he 38 when he starred in the first Bond film.
Page, who also starred in the short-lived For the People, plays Simon Basset, the charming Duke of Hastings in the first season of Shonda Rhimes’ breakout series for the streaming service.
TVLine announced that Bridgerton is said to be Netflix’s fifth biggest original series launch of all time with a projected reach of 63 million households in the first four weeks of its debut.
The next installment of the Bond franchise was delayed a year due to the COVID pandemic and is set to debut on April 2, 2021, so it’s likely a new Bond won’t be officially announced until then.
But till then, we’re all keeping our fingers crossed for Page.
Here’s the betting breakdown for the role:
Tom Hardy – 6/4
James Norton – 7/4
Idris Elba – 7/2
Regé-Jean Page – 5/1
Sam Heughan – 6/1
Richard Madden – 6/1
Jack Lowden – 8/1
Cillian Murphy – 10/1
‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Season 4 Easter Eggs and Nods to ‘Riverdale’
Since Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was cancelled by Netflix, the series was never able to deliver a crossover with Riverdale, or its now-cancelled spinoff, Katy Keene.
However, that doesn’t mean the fourth and final season skipped on the fun Easter Eggs and nods.
The series fully embraced its connection to Riverdale, R5 (Ross Lynch’s former family band), and Sabrina the Teenage Witch!
Here are some of the best Easter eggs from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 4!
Season 4 Episode 1
Roz raises issues about the lack of sex education at Baxter High, especially after the adulterous pagans blew into town on season 3. She points out that Riverdale has condom machines in the bathroom in the first reference of the season. It’s a bit of an odd comment, but honestly, fitting considering how much hooking up happens in the small town bordering Greendale.
Season 4 Episode 3
After Sabrina is possessed by The Weird, an octopus-like eldritch terror, her new lab partner and the dude she went on one date, Lucas Hunt, doesn’t show up for class. When she asks the teacher why, he informs her that he “transferred to Riverdale High,” which Sabrina deems is probably for the best. It seems like she doesn’t truly know what goes down in the halls of R.H. though because it’s genuinely just as weird as Baxter High. I wonder if we’ll be seeing Mr. Hunt in future episodes of Riverdale?
Season 4 Episode 6
As Harvey, Roz and Theo get ready for band practice, they have a tense confrontation with a new band called the Stoned Philosophers, who claim they booked the practice rooms. Riverdale fans will immediately recognize band leader “Tobey” and his friends as Stonewall Prep’s Bret, Donna, and Joan. Yep, the same trio that went after Jughead and caused him to fake his own death are now bullying Harvey and friends! We may not have a full-on crossover, but this is one thrilling surprise!
In the same episode, Satanic Panic, a heavy metal band from back in the day resurrects to cause havoc in Greendale and compete in the Battle of the Bands. The lead of the band is played by Ross Lynch’s (Harvey) real-life brother, Riker Lynch. They were both in the band R5!
Season 4 Episode 7
Fans of The WB sitcom which gave us the OG Sabrina Spellman, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, will recognize Caroline Rhea and Beth Broderick as Aunt Hilda and Aunt Zelda. The actresses replaced Sabrina’s “Aunties,” played by Miranda Otto and Lucy Davis in the Netflix adaptation, in the parallel realm in which Sabrina Morningstar finds herself stuck in a diabolical sitcom as part of the Endless terror prior to the culmination of the Void. In addition to Rhea and Broderick guest starring, there’s also a laugh track and a Salem that talks… just like in the sitcom!
9 Biggest Moments from ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Season 4
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina wrapped up its run with the fourth and final season on Netflix.
Sabrina and friends faced their biggest threat to date – the eldrtich terrors.
Here are the biggest moments from the eight-episode season.
The Eldritch Terrors… obviously
The whole season revolved around the ancient entities that culminated with the arrival of the Void – the end of all things. Fitting for a final season, right? Sabrina, the coven, and her mortal friends teamed up to defeat each other terrors – The Dark, The Uninvited, The Weird, The Perverse, The Cosmic, The Returned, The Endless, and finally, The Void.
Hilda and Mr. C Get Married
Nothing was going to stand in the way of Hilda and Mr. C’s big day, not even a terror threatening humankind. The odd couple agreed to have a wedding reception and ceremony as dictated by Zelda and the Academy, which ended up being kind of downer when The Uninvited crashed the party, killed Dorian, and then threatened everyone else because they refused to extend him an invite to the party. Sabrina served as mediator by swooping herself and The Uninvited to Hell for another wedding, where she then married him and trapped him in a prison existing outside of time and space on their wedding night. And she made it home just in time for the private ceremony at the Spellman house in which Hilda and Dr. C exchanged vows dressed up as their favorite movie monsters.
Sabrina Gets Married to Caliban
That other wedding I mentioned? It was Sabrina Morningstar’s! The 16-year-old wed Caliban, yeah, the same one that tried to kill her and Sabrina Spellman. She promised her was reformed and loved her and all that, but Caliban will always be Caliban… and he had his eye on that throne. Of course, this didn’t take away from Sabrina’s stunning red lace dress. Though, she did have to share the spotlight with Sabrina Spellman, who used the wedding as an opportunity to marry The Uninvited and trick him into captivity. All in a day’s work for these witches!
Roz is a Witch
Roz always had powers, better known as “the cunning,” which essentially gave her psychic abilities, but this season, she learned that she’s a full-blown witch. Her ancestors, who were proud Christian women, didn’t want to be persecuted for witchcraft so they simply didn’t call themselves the W-word. However, once Mambo Marie proved that Roz had powers, she was welcomed into the Academy to join Mambo Marie and Prudence – and later Agatha – as the newest Weird Sister.
Sabrina Morningstar Perishes
With the realms in peril because of the existence of two Sabrinas, one of them had to go to the parallel realm to restore balance. Sabrina and Sabrina Morningstar played rock, paper, scissors to decide, and Morningstar lost. She walked through the mirror (wish it was a closet like on Sabrina the Teenage Witch, to be honest) in hopes of restoring balance in the cosmos and found herself in an eldritch terror known as the Endless. Basically, she was stuck in a diabolical sitcom and Salem is the eldritch terror. When the Void arrived, she managed to convince Salem that they had to escape and they ran back through the mirror. While she made it back to Sabrina’s realm, she died shortly after without telling Sabrina how to defeat it.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is known for throwing in little Easter eggs to sister show Riverdale, but they had a ton of fun with it in the final season. There were a few mentions of Riverdale High School and a cameo by Bret, Donna, and Joan, who played characters in a punk band. Riker Lynch, the brother of Ross Lynch (Harvey), also had a role as an undead leader of a rock band.
And lastly, one episode replaced Sabrina’s Aunt Hilda and Zelda with Caroline Rhea and Beth Broderick, who played the original roles in the WB sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
See all the Easter eggs here.
Lilith Destroys Lucifer
Lilith has been wanting to reign in Hell for years. After killing her newborn son, Adam, to protect him from his father, Lucifer, she negotiated to get her powers back. She then turned on Lucifer and stabbed him with the sword she used to kill Lazarus, drank his blood, embraced his powers, and banished him to the Mortal Realm. Payback’s a b….
Agatha Returns to Normal
Crazy Agatha is crazy no more! After Dorcas returned to the land of the living due to an eldritch terror, she forgave her sister for murdering her. When that happened, Agatha snapped back to reality and clearly, had no recollection of what happened in the months prior. As Prudence said, it’s good to have her back, but she needs to be clued in on a lot.
Sabrina and Nick Are Endgame… Literally
When Nick took responsibility for the demise of his relationship with Sabrina on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 3, it was a big step. He promised to wait until she was ready because they were “endgame.” Sabrina likely didn’t think she would be ready as soon as she was, but when there’s a chance you might die, you kind of have to follow your heart. And her heart said that she loved Nick. From then on, they were inseparable as they fought side-by-side to defeat the eldritch terrors.
When Sabrina embodied a piece of the Void and sacrificed herself to save everyone, it was heartbreaking to watch Nick mourn his girlfriend and the life they would have had together. But two people who are destined to be together will always find their way back to each other. As Sabrina chilled out in heaven, she was surprised to see Nick, who explained he went swimming and there was a “wicked undertow.”
The two kissed as he declared that they had forever and ever together.
