Parenthood
Too Big to Fail

The future is on everyone’s mind. From Amber and her baby and Drew and his life plans, to the future of Max and Dylan’s relationship and to the future of The Luncheonette. So naturally, the show jumps three months in the future. And while I think it’s partially so we get to see Amber sport a cute baby bump, we also move our storylines along as we near halfway through the final season.

Happy Halloween! Did Damon and Bonnie get a treat in tonight’s episode? Or did they get a cruel trick? In last season’s finale, Damon and Bonnie held hands when they were facing oblivion. Bonnie said to Damon that there were probably a billion people he’d rather be there with. He jokingly answered that there were only about a thousand. They held hands and arrived in Retroville. Tonight, as Damon and Bonnie prepare to escape from Retroville, Damon says to Bonnie that there were probably a billion people she’d rather be with. She smiles and says “not really,” Will there be a happy ending for Damon and Bonnie?

How to Get Away with Murder
Freakin’ Whack-a-Mole

Of all Annalise’s hires, Asher is probably still the most disliked. It’s kind of fair, but kind of not. Yes, he’s privileged and often a jerk, but, as far as we know, he’s the only one not involved in murder. Still, that “as far as we know” is a bit of a sticking point. What happens when we see his point of view?

For one thing, we learn that, yeah- he’s like that in private too. At least until the trophy, which he finally somehow won, goes missing. He goes to the Keatings’ and pounds on the door, yelling at the others- until Michaela texts him and sends him off to the library in search of them instead.

It’s Arrow’s 50th episode. And this milestone episode brought plenty of interesting developments into the mystery behind who killed Sara Lance and (possibly) eliminated another suspect off the list. The episode also brought the introduction of an iconic DC Comics character and it was pretty great.
