Many fans were thrown off by Boomer’s return on the latest episode of Good Girls.
Last we saw, Boomer was hiding out in his grandmother’s attic and allowing the Beth, Annie, and Ruby to believe that he was chopped up into tiny pieces by Mary Pat. Marion then forced Boomer to tell the police the truth, and when he turned himself in, Beth was cleared of murder charges.
We thought we had seen the last of Boomer until all of “Nana” was focused on him and how Rio wanted to kill him.
How many lives does Boomer have?!
At first, bringing him back seemed to have no overall purpose other than to torment Beth, Annie, and Ruby, who were tasked with helping him break out of jail in order to prove their loyalty to Rio.
Rio Did Something Bad on ‘Good Girls’ and We Have to Stop Shipping Him
It seemed like Rio wanted them to truly suffer because of their assignment and new that harboring a fugitive, specifically a fugitive they were unable to silence before, would be a task like no other.
Boomer escaped prison — covered in sewage — thinking he was going to Canada, but the reality was that the girls were supposed to deliver him to his death.
When the good girls did their part and Rio assured her that he’d give her a second chance, Beth (and the remaining soul that she had) attempted to make a weak argument that Boomer deserved to live to which Rio replied, “yeah, I got different plans for him.”
But is Rio’s plan to kill Boomer? I don’t think so.
If Rio wanted Boomer dead, Boomer would be dead. It’s that simple. Even Annie questioned why he needed them to grab Boomer if he has a whole network of men at his disposal.
Realistically, Rio could have had someone shank him in prison, which would have required a lot less effort for all parties involved. This is a man who still managed to have control over his men while working as a “snitch” for FBI agent Turner. He has connections everywhere.
There was also something suspicious about the way Rio said he had another plan for Boomer. It wasn’t followed by his full-on smirk, but there was a hint of amusement there that Beth was so concerned with Rio killing again.
The truth is, even though this season is kind of a dysfunctional mess, I don’t think the writers would bring Boomer back into the fold just to kill him. He has to have a greater purpose, one that Rio wants to use to his advantage.
Rio wouldn’t go through all that trouble to get Boomer out of prison unless it directly helped him.
Beth seems to think Rio is tying up loose ends just like he did with poor Lucy, and Rio wants her to think that.
My outlandish theory is that letting the ladies think Boomer is dead gives him an upper hand and deviates their attention from the fact that he’s working with the feds and helping them build a case against Beth.
If he killed Boomer, why wouldn’t he do it in front of the ladies? And why wouldn’t the audience see it happen?
That’s right — because it didn’t happen.
Rio could just use Boomer and all that he knows as insurance to keep Beth in check, but I think it goes deeper.
Rio has no loyalty towards Beth and no reason to trust her after she shot him. After that moment, he was “forced” to work alongside Turner until he was able to ambush and kill him.
But what if Turner isn’t dead either? The #1 law of television is no one is dead until you see a body.
It’s entirely possible the whole thing was orchestrated in order to lull Beth into a false sense of security so that she’d start up her printing press again.
Snatching up Boomer, who previously worked with Turner and tried to turn the girls in, makes him a key witness against Beth as he’s seen many of their crimes from the first grocery store kidnapping to washing the cash to all the hoopla that went down with Mary Part.
Forcing Beth to aid and abet a fugitive is just the cherry on top of all the charges they could bring against her.
If you think about it, Rio has been tasking her with projects that continue to incriminate her.
He may be the “big boss,” but she’s technically running the operation.
His men are washing the cash, but she’s the one printing the fake money, which seems like a bigger crime in the grand scheme of things because no fake money means no washing.
Rio never does any of the dirty work — he calls the shots, but he doesn’t actually get his hands dirty or do anything that incriminates himself. It’s brilliant.
Plus, it could connect to the mysterious and standalone scene of Rio playing tennis that was never addressed again.

We don’t know much about Rio, and though we’re constantly seeing Beth brainstorm and come up with plans to free herself from his grasp, he’s always two steps ahead of her.
Maybe we’re not seeing what he’s up to when she’s not around because he isn’t who he says he is.
That would not only be an epic twist that could be this season’s saving grace, but it would be incredible payback to a woman who thought she could get away with shooting a man (even a man like Rio) three times and then stealing his operation from under him.
YOU Review – Portrait of the Artist (402)
And the murder mystery continues on YOU Season 4 Episode 2.
Joe, er, Jonathan, has been going above and beyond to figure out which of the members of the elitist circle could be the murderer that’s trying to frame him, but it looks like he’s being played at his own game.
Honestly, it’s kind of refreshing to see Joe on the other side of things for once—running around terrified like a chicken without a head and trying to put together the pieces of a puzzle.
He’s not in a city that’s familiar to him, and he’s definitely not in his element. And while he fell into a friends circle of some of the most insane and damaged people on earth, his charm isn’t working on them or in his favor in the same way that it has countless times before.
And what’s making this all the more disturbing is that there’s someone out there that’s actually more deranged than Joe. Joe pales in comparison to the person that’s stabbing people left and right and keeping body parts as tokens of some sort, likely to frame Joe in the long run by planting those body pieces on his belongings or in his apartment.
The person is hiding in plain sight and utilizing all common and familiar murder mystery tropes, including that the second victim is always the first suspect.
The crimes are gruesome and terrible, but it’s also hard to feel bad for any of the victims as the whole bunch—maybe aside from Rhys—is genuinely unlikable. Mostly everyone in the wealthy group has no redeeming qualities, and most of them don’t even seem too phased by the deaths in their inner circle because the truth is that none of these shallow people actually like or care about each other.
YOU does a great job at making us question Joe’s sanity and then immediately introducing people who are even worse than him, proving that the world seems to be full of unhinged people everywhere you go.
Joe doesn’t have much to go on at the end of episode 2 as every single person he’s come across could potentially be the killer. He has, however, seemingly figured out some kind of connection between Malcolm and Simon’s deaths, though it’s unclear if that has any bearing on their deaths.
Blackmail seems to be a common thread, with Malcolm likely blackmailing Adam, who fancies himself a golden shower from the bus boys at his establishment, while planning to take down Simon, a fraud who stole artists’ work to pass off as his own. Joe learned the truth about Simon from his assistant, who crashed the opening and threw red paint at him (he had it coming). She also confirmed that Malcolm was trying to expose him, and while she definitely has the motive, I don’t think she would stoop that low. She wanted to make a statement—she didn’t want to be the statement.
At this point, the only person who stands to gain anything from the destruction of both men is Kate as she was in a relationship with Malcolm and a gallery partner with Simon, whose secrets threatened her career. But I’m not convinced that she’s responsible. She genuinely seems like one of the only good and level-headed people in the group, not to mention she’s also concerned about Malcolm’s disappearance meaning she likely has no idea he’s dead.
It could’ve been Adam to keep his sexual kink a secret, but I don’t think he’d have it in him.
The timing of Roald’s arrival was suspect, as was his immediate distaste for Jonathan, so I’ll keep him on the list. Joe may be the new guy, but he shows up right before the second murder.
If I truly had to put my money on someone, my prime suspect is still Rhys. There’s just something off about him, plus, he carries himself as if he’s above them all, so it would make sense if he was trying to make them pay for their sins or something. He’s also very observant, thus, he’d be knowledgeable about all of their deepest and darkest secrets, which could be used against them. It would also make sense that he used his status and smarts to dig up dirt about Joe.
The killer seems to be having an absolute blast toying with Joe, even beating him at his own game by figuring out his identity.
It sent a chill down Joe’s spine—and I didn’t think it was possible to freak Joe out. In an attempt to stay ahead of the killer, Joe is somehow trying to play catch up.
What if it’s Marienne? What if she’s turning the tables on him? It seems like the killer is using Joe’s psychological warfare against him, which means that they have a lot in common. It has to be someone that Joe has connected with on a personal level already, so aside from Rhys and Kate, that leaves Nadia rounding out the top three suspects. She’s been helping him figure out the murder mystery genre, which might be a clue as to her involvement. Plus, we find out that she had some kind of personal relationship with Malcolm, though it’s unclear if it was sexual.
I really hope that she’s just a genuine person helping her teacher, but at this point, we can’t rule anything out.
And finally, there’s the possibility of Adam and Phoebe’s security guard, Vic, who is silent but deadly. He sees everything that’s happening (he ticks off the observant box for sure) but doesn’t say anything, though we know he’s not above blackmail because when he catches Joe snooping around, he takes a lump sum of money to remain quiet.
What did you think of the episode? Who do you think the killer is?
What Happened to Levi on ‘La Brea’?
Levi is back in 10,000 B.C.!
On the February 14the episode of La Brea, titled “The Return,” Nicholas Gonzalez’s character did just that, jumping through space and time, okay, fine, maybe just a sinkhole, to make his way back to the prehistoric era.
Gavin was rather shocked to see him, and rightfully so, especially considering Levi’s altered appearance—he aged 10 years. Levi explained that while they last saw him in 1988, just a few days ago, for him, a decade passed, and he’s coming from 1998.
The passing of time is a crazy concept on this show, but it allows them to play around with timelines and fun twists.
Levi’s return doesn’t come from a place of longing for Eve either—he has a goal to kill James to stop the sinkholes that have continued causing issues in 1988… and even led to the death of his wife, who was his co-worker at the DOD. Another shocking development that we’ll surely dig into in future episodes.
James has taken everything from Levi at this point—his wife and previously, his shot at happiness with Eve, so he’s a man scorned.
To get close to James, Levi is going to require Eve’s assistance, but will she help him? Only time will tell.

Original article published — 2/7/23
La Brea Season 2 returned from its midseason hiatus on Jan. 31, but fans were quick to point out that one major character was missing from the double-dose of episodes: Levi Delgado (played by Nicholas Gonzalez).
Immediately after the episode aired, questions began to pour in with fans asking what happened to Levi and if we’ll see him again.
The answer—maybe….possibly. After all, anything is possible on La Brea, right?
As for what happened to Levi, well, if you’ll recall during the La Brea fall finale, Levi and Eve (Natalie Rea) parted ways in 1988. Eve’s heart has been torn between Levi and her estranged husband, Gavin (Eoin Macken) for quite some time, especially after it was revealed that Gavin’s visions—the one that led to their split and pushed her into Levi’s arms—were real all along. This caused a lot of guilt for Eve, and that guilt eventually played into her decision to leave Levi behind and follow her family back to 10K B.C.
In the final moments spent in 1988, Gavin’s mother informed him that they had to go back to 10K B.C. to upload a virus that would shut down the portal that was causing catastrophes like the sinkholes, including the one set to open in Los Angeles in just a few days.
Of course, if they damaged the time machine, they would never be able to leave 10K B.C. again, which meant everyone had a pretty tough choice to make. Except for Eve, who didn’t really have a choice. Choosing to stay behind with Levi meant that she would be turning her back on her family and potentially never seeing them again. All her kids have ever wanted was the family back together, so her decision was made with them in mind. While I’m sure on some level, she also considered her relationship with Gavin, she ultimately made the jump back to keep her family intact.
And that meant leaving behind Levi, who decided he was going to stay in the ’80s and make a life for himself. If you think about it, it was the only decision that made sense for him considering there was a slim chance of living a decent life in 10K B.C. And it wouldn’t be wise to go back down there and risk your life with a woman who was one foot into the relationship and one foot out. It would be a huge sacrifice to make for Eve without any guarantee that they’d end up together.
Both Levi and Eve seemed in agreement that their romance was over and they parted ways graciously.
At the time of the finale, fans were under the impression that Gavin, Eve, and co. were going to destroy the time machine, which meant destroying any chance of ever seeing Levi again. This was a permanent goodbye in their eyes.
However, once they got back down to 10K B.C., Gavin couldn’t go through with uploading the virus after seeing a vision of Eve dying. His father, James, convinced Gavin that he had a way to fix the portal so that they could use it without causing any more harm to the environment, which also meant that he had a chance at saving Eve from death in the prehistoric ages. Gavin’s love for her has always been very evident, so it’s not surprising that he chose this route.
But his decision also keeps the door open for Levi to return down the line in future episodes.
If there is still a portal to travel between time periods, Levi may not be out of the game just yet.
It’s unclear how or why he would come back to 10K B.C—maybe he’ll come back with more information about the sinkholes and portal, maybe he’ll return after feeling guilty for leaving his friends (Gavin included) behind, or maybe he’ll miss Eve so much that he takes the leap at the first chance he gets.
It’s even possible that Eve finds a way to communicate with him while he’s in 1988, which would keep him around but not in the same time period. Talk about a long-distance relationship.
The point is, I wouldn’t count Levi out just yet. The actor was a huge draw for the show, and while not everyone loved his romance with Eve or the love triangle, I don’t think they’d write him off so quickly, especially without giving Eve and Levi proper closure. If it really is over, Eve needs to be sure of her decision, and again, she only chose to return to 10K B.C. for her family.
There seems to be a hint about Levi’s return with the upcoming episode, set to air on Tuesday, Feb. 14, called “The Return.” The title seemingly alludes to Levi’s return, but the synopsis makes me think that it’s a surefire guarantee.
6 Sexy Shows to Watch for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day can be celebrated in all sorts of different ways.
Some people bake cookies, others go out for a romantic date, while some do a fun activity with their significant other.
However, this is the first Valentine’s Day under COVID-19 restrictions, which means that you likely don’t have as many fun and romance-filled options as in years prior.
That’s where TV comes in! Regardless if you’re spending February 14 with a significant other or your besties, these are some of the sexiest and steamiest shows to watch on the day that’s all about celebrating L-O-V-E (for friends, family, significant others, and, most importantly, yourself!)
Romance, scandal, drama… Bridgerton has it all! Dubbed the Regency-era Gossip Girl, Netflix’s smash hit and most-watched series is a brilliant and entertaining period piece with enough sex scenes to make you blush. And Regé-Jean Page isn’t bad on the eyes.
Emily in Paris
Emily in Paris, which was just surprisingly nominated for a Golden Globe, hails from Sex and the City creator Darren Star. It’s an airy flick about a millennial named Emily who travels to Paris for a dream job and becomes enamored with the City of Love and the men that want to show her all that it has to offer.
Falling in love requires you to be open, honest, and vulnerable. The American rom-com anthology web series, based on a weekly column published by the New York Times, explores themes of love (romantic, platonic, friendly) with a star-studded cast. The 30-minute episodes are standalone and easily digestible, which makes them the perfect viewing on a night like Valentine’s Day.
What happens when Liza, a 40-year-old single mom, decides to be 26-years old in order to re-enter the working world and falls in love with not one but two very different men? An exciting journey through the world of publishing and heartbreak. As Liza tries to find herself, she does everything in her power to hide her true self from those she’s become most intimate with. It’s another whip-smart Darren Star creation!
Two sisters, Beth and Annie, along with best friend Ruby find themselves embroiled in a dangerous life of crime after robbing a grocery store. Beth, specifically, falls victim to a crime of passion with one sexy “gang friend” that pulls her further and further into his world.
If Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars had a baby, it would be this Spanish-language drama. A private school becomes the scene of a murder after a clash between the rich and poor students. There’s plenty of sexual tension and unexpected turns as detectives try to narrow down the list of suspects.
