With only two episodes left in the final season of Kurt Sutter’s Sons of Anarchy, the end is near and we can probably narrow down the ending to a few solid versions.
I always had a feeling Juice would be the one to tell Jax that Gemma killed Tara. There wasn’t anyone else that knew this secret, and Jax would need a true confession from an adult, having his son tell him wouldn’t be enough. Also, they wouldn’t keep Theo Rossi around this long if he wasn’t going to play an essential role in the unveiling of the biggest secret of the entire series. Having said that, with a little help from 5-year old Abel, Juice was ready to lay it all out for Jax. If he had any hope of surviving his sentence and making it back into the club for killing Henry Lin, all that’s gone out the window now and he’ll most likely be meeting his demise next episode.
So where does this leave Gemma? The three most popular outcomes for Gemma (and I love how this is the only ending people care about not the actual fate of SAMCRO) are these;
- Jax will kill Gemma
- Gemma will go to jail for killing Tara
- Gemma will run away and live a life of seclusion and never see her sons/grandons ever again
Over this season, I warmed up to the idea of having Gemma pay for her mistakes- the legal way. Since this show is all law breakers, it would be nice to end the show off with someone paying for their sins through the court of law. She deserves a long and painful punishment, she doesn’t deserve to be killed and set free! Come on people! But after watching last night’s episode, I don’t think sending Gemma to prison will be in the cards for her. It doesn’t seem like the writers are taking her in that direction, literally she was seen driving to Portento, Eureka and Fortuna. Which is in Northern California, so maybe she’s heading all the way up to Canada? In which case- we don’t even want you Gemma! So that narrows it down to 2 possible outcomes.
At the end of the episode, Jax breaks down beside Nero and admits that he still loves Gemma after all she’s done, she’s still his mother. Nero brings up the elephant in the room which is will Jax kill his own mother? Nero doesn’t want him to, he doesn’t think Jax could ever come back from something like that. Jax believes this to, which opens the idea that if Jax killed his own mother will we [as the audience] stand by him completely? He doesn’t even think he can kill his own mother. Yes, he’s a cold hearted killer, but I think going through something like that and actually killing her himself, I don’t know if I would want Jax to get to that level. But, on the other hand he’s done all this killing thus far, will one more really change the way we perceive our main hero? Does this even make him a hero in the end? Also, trying to imagine that scene of him killing her (in a filmmaker way not a serial killer way) I don’t think it would ever live up to our expectations on how punishing Gemma’s death or ‘banishment’ will be.
Which leads us to one final outcome, if Gemma escapes and never returns to her old life. I think I’m okay with this ending, but how will they show that? How would we know that she’s never going to come back? Or that down the line Jax has not forgiven her? I don’t know if this plotline can be portrayed accurately enough for us to feel like we got the ending we wanted. On the other hand, if she drives away, which she already is, and maybe kills herself?. I almost thought she was going to drive her car off the road at the end of last night’s episode and end it all there. It didn’t happen, which leads me to believe she doesn’t think she deserves to die? Also, her giving Abel John’s ring at the end made me hate her even more. Like she doesn’t even understand that all of this [her family being torn a apart], is because of that [SAMCRO life]. Why would she want her grandkids to continue on with this mayhem? Which means she doesn’t get it, and she never will.
Somewhere in there is the ending I think I want, but it doesn’t really matter because there’s only two weeks to go and I’m hoping Kurt Sutter has the ending we’ll be satisfied with. In the meantime it’s just exciting to make up our own endings and bounce ideas off each other.

The time has come, Fall is officially over, which means put your Pumpkin Spice Latte and UGG boots away – pull out your Snuggie and Snorel’s and get ready for the winter season. Here’s a list of the Top 5 Shows That Surprised Us This Fall.
Yes Homeland is in it’s fourth season, and it is definitely not a newcomer. But after last season’s shocking ending killing off it’s main character Nicholas Brody, it was hard envisioning a season that could trump the past ones. How could a show go on without it’s main character? And by main character I literally mean Clair Danes and Brody’s character (Damian Lewis) were the central storyline, and without either one of their characters, there wouldn’t be a point to the show. So you see why it was extremely important for the writers to ramp up this fourth season and basically makes us forget all about Brody, which we did. Until they brought him back in a dream/drug sequence last week. Regardless this show is on fire! And if you’re not already watching – then watch. Now.
Homeland airs Sunday nights at 9 pm on Showtime.
2. The Affair
Showtime’s The Affair is in its first season, as of this publication it is on it’s 6th episode and more than halfway through the season.(10 episodes) One of the main reasons I wanted to watch this show was for the main character – Noah Solloway played by The Wire’s Dominic West. He is hot stuff and we haven’t seen him in anything since The Wire, which spiked an interest in this new romantic drama. Can we call it that? Right from the start everyone’s assumption is that this show is another adult romance show that will probably include a lot of ‘HBO-esque’ sex scenes. Which it is..and it has, but there’s something else that’s made this show completely different from what you expect from a romance/drama. What makes this show so entertaining is that it dives into the darker more psychological effects of having an affair, and the secrecy of wanting to live a secret life that ultimately pulls our two main characters away from their every day normal. From the way it’s shot, edited, and laid out this show is completely thought out and proves why video editing is just as important as script writing. Each episode is split into two perspectives, usually the first 25 minutes is ‘Noah’s Story” and the remaining 25 minutes is “Allison’s Story”. For the first 4 episodes their version of events were running simultaneously, different things being said/heard/seen in each of their perspectives. Which adds another layer of intrigue, why is Allison the sexually aggressive partner in Noah’s story? But in Allison’s story she is more timid and resistant to Noah’s passes. Very interesting to see the different perspectives the characters have, as a viewer it’s a real mind-f*** because you never really know which story of events to believe. The premise of the show is so basic, but the way they’ve presented it to us, it’s really brilliant, and absolutely surprised me. Definitely a show to watch this season.
The Affair airs Sunday nights at 10pm on Showtime.
Another show that’s surprised me this season is DirecTV’s Kingdom. Yes, it’s the show with Nick Jonas. First off, I would like to thank the entire production of this show for offering an incentive to people who wouldn’t necessarily watch a show about mixed martial arts. We would however watch a show with sweaty hunky men with muscles working out half naked. So thank you people for giving that to the rest of us. Also, the show takes place in Venice, California so I don’t mind seeing palm trees while I watch it either. Okay, the premise is; Alvey (Frank Grillo) a onetime successful MMA fighter who runs a gym with his younger girlfriend Lisa. Alvey trains his son Nate (Nick Jonas) as he tries to becomes the next great fighter but an injury puts this dream on hold for a bit. Alvey needs to get more business to his gym Navy St. and decides to re-train Ryan (Matt Lauria, Friday Night Lights), former MMA Champion and former fiancé of Lisa. Also, Ryan’s fresh out of prison for beating the f*** out of his dad. Intrigued yet? I usually give it two episodes to decide whether or not a show is worth watching, by the first episode I already knew I was hooked.
Kingdom airs Wednesday nights at 9 pm.
4. How To Get Away with Murder
- I was worried everyone in this show would start talking like everyone in Scandal
- I had enough shows to keep track of on Thursday night’s I didn’t need another one
- Not crazy about Viola Davis’ face
Valid points. I kept seeing the promos for HTGAWM for a few weeks, but it wasn’t until I was bored with an empty PVR that I decided to finally give in and check the show out. I started late, I think 4 episodes in so I missed a lot, as I would soon realize (didn’t even know there were flashbacks happening). But I was immediately hooked. Even though Annalise (Viola Davis) annoys me, nobody seems to talk like they’re in Scandal (for now), so I’m good with that. Also, it’s a really smart, well thought out show so I definitely don’t feel like I could get dumber by watching it. If you haven’t watched it yet, you should. Just start from the beginning, the longer you wait, the more confusing it’s going to be.
How To Get Away With Murder airs Thursdays at 10 pm on ABC.
5. Red Band Society
O-M-G I love this show! It makes me so happy even though it’s about a sick children’s hospital. I’m so over the hospital dramas, so this one was a breath of fresh air. From the beginning, I could tell this show was going to be different. I wasn’t crying – which was…a breath of fresh air! It is a show for the younger audience, so I’m not running hurdles to watch it on a weekly basis, but it is a cute story with cute teenagers dealing with not so cute things. The writing is absolutely surprising, seeing how they turn cheesy situations into really entertaining and witty moments. I like that. Unfortunately, the ratings haven’t been great so far, so they might not even make it to season 2 but it definitely surprised me. Just be ready to laugh and cry at the same time, which is absolutely better than laughing and crying at different times.
Red Band Society airs Wednesdays at 9 pm on FOX.
It’s the first day of October, and for some this month can be a horrible reminder of the ensuing winter climate. For others, including myself, October is all about the cool autumn air, sweater weather, pumpkin spice lattes and of course – AMERICAN HORROR STORY!!
I’ve been waiting for this one since the end of last season’s finale, every season is a new story, a new theme, and an even scarier world to jump into and that’s what makes AHS one of the best shows on TV. (The best in my opinion sorry GoT!) If you haven’t read up on this season yet, here is a quick overview:
Freak Show will be the 4th season of American Horror Story (each season is separate from the other, characters, stories, locations all change with the release of a new season- so don’t worry about catching up) This season is set in 1952 Jupiter,Florida telling the story of one of the last remaining freak shows in America. Returning cast members from previous seasons include, Jessica Lange (she has announced this will be her last season), Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe,Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare, and Frances Conroy. This fourth season will also include new additions Michael Chiklis and Patti Labelle (playing Gabourey’s mother)
Okay so if that cast isn’t reason enough, Ryan Murphy announced to a fan on Twitter that Jessica Lange will be singing a Lana Del Ray cover. No word on Lana actually being in an episode, but with last season’s Stevie Nick’s cameo chances are high, and our fingers are crossed.
Here is a compilation trailer that someone put together of all the Freak Show promos.

10. Rick, Carl and Michonne run into Morgan (“Clear” Season 3)
For dedicated fans of The Walking Dead, viewers had a chance to reunite with crazy man Morgan from the season 1 episode 1. (Morgan and his son find Rick walking down a deserted neighborhood street in the first episode) Fast forward to Season 3 and Morgan is still alive, unfortunately his son isn’t. I think a lot of fans wanted to know what happened to Morgan and I think in the back of our minds we always knew him and Rick would find each other. After Morgan stabs Rick in the shoulder, he asks him why he never used the walkie-talkie. Rick explains he tried for weeks to communicate with him but eventually had to relocate his gang and thus out of walkie range. Rick realizes Morgan is delirious after he finds out his youngest son was killed by his undead wife (the wife he tried to kill back in season one) In the end, Morgan declines Rick’s offer to join them and continues on with his mission to ‘clear’ all the zombies in the area.
It’s been a few months since the Game of Thrones season 4 finale, and we’re officially wrapping up this epic season with a countdown of the greatest moments from season 4. A ton of stuff happened, so if we left anything out, comment or Tweet us. Join the discussion.
Oh and there will be spoilers! You’ve been warned.
10.Arya leaves Westeros
We’re starting off this countdown with the final scene of this season, Arya stark has officially left the buildin’!! After her long and scary journey, she has the chance to finally use the Braavosi coin she received so many seasons ago. She hitches a ride on a Braavosi ship and doesn’t look back. I cannot wait for Arya’s journey in the upcoming seasons. Traditionally, they end off the seasons with a final dragon/Khaleesi shot, but this season they chose differently. I wonder if that was on purpose. This year at Comic Con a fan asked Maisie Williams (Arya) what to expect of her character in the next season, she replied ‘I am no one’. For readers of the book, this is everything
9. Grandma Tyrell admits to murdering Joffrey
Did she really admit it though? Another reason why I love Game of Thrones – the women always get a chance to shine. Lady Olenna (Margaery’s grandmother) was the definition of a boss ass bish this season when she refused to let the Lannisters control her granddaughter and the plans for the royal wedding. Whether she was in a scene with her granddaughter or Tywin Lannister, she always had something smart and sassy to say, and she usually had the last word. She might be a cute lil’ old lady but she sure knows what she’s doing, I’m sure jaws dropped when she admitted to Margaery that she had been planning Joffrey’s murder with Littlefinger. Say whaaaat!? Amazing, more twists and turns just how we like it. Also she’s given Margaery this sense of strong support and backing, and it’s really coming in use now that Margaery has to sort of ‘swoon’ Prince Tommen away from his over bearing mother Cersei.
8. Bran leaves Jon at the Night’s Watch
I think one of the reasons we love Game of Thrones so much is because they know how to break our hearts and somehow make us love them even more. The journey of Bran Stark is a long and grueling one, so when his crew arrives at the Night’s Watch every single fan was hoping for Bran to reunite with his older brother Jon. Unfortunately, the Stark children are too smart for their own good, Bran watches his brother fight and makes a heart breaking decision to leave without seeing his brother. Bran understood that the mission of finding the three eyed raven (damn you bird!) was more important than him reuniting with Jon. He knew once Jon saw him, he would never let his younger brother go beyond the wall, ruining their entire mission. Really heartbreaking scene though.
7. Prince of Dorne / Tyrion talk
Probably one of the best chats of the season, the Prince of Dorne visits Tyrion in his prison cell. This is where everyone jumped on the Dorne bandwagon, and a crucial scene for the writers wanting the audience to take OB’s side. Oberyn’s insights on the Cersei/Tyrion dynamic proves to the audience how smart and sensitive he really is. So now we like him more right? He explains the first time he ever met the Lannister children, Tyrion was still a baby. His sister Cersei hated him even then and Oberyn always wondered how one sister could hate her brother so deeply. And then he unleashes a bombshell and tells Tyrion he will fight for him during the trial by battle. So now we like and we’re worried about him too!?! Oh god this isn’t going to end well.
6. Littlefinger pushes Lysa
This guy…basically started the entire show. He was behind Jon Arryn’s death, he was behind mostly everything that went wrong for the Starks…and now he’s behind Lady Lysa of the Vail because he’s about to push her into the vortex!! After he saves Sansa from King’s Landing, he lies to everyone at the Vail about her, calling her his ‘niece’. He marries Sansa’s aunt Lysa, and puts himself that much closer to ruling the Vail (practically untouchable by enemies because it sits on top of a mountain) When Lysa sees Littlefinger kissing Sansa, she freaks out and almost kills the young girl. But Littlefinger has bigger plans, one that doesn’t involve a wrinkly old witch…and one that does involve a young and beautiful red head. He pushes Lysa into the empty hole that is thousands of feet in the air. Bye bye crazy auntie!
5. Khaleesi locks up her dragons
We didn’t get to see a whole lot of our Khaleesi this season, but when we did see her she was most likely depressed over how powerful her teenager dragons had become. When Drogon ends up scorching a little girl from town, she has no choice but to lock up Viserion and Rhaegal (Drogon is missing). It was such an emotional scene, and probably one of the most expensive because we got to see the dragons up close…and in chains? Okay I hope those things are strong enough.
4. Prince of Dorne Battle
Everyone loves Oberyn. From his first on screen moment he had all the ladies, and probably men cheering for him. He was the bad boy/sweetheart/nymphomaniac this season needed, and boy did he play it well to the last second. Instantly he became a fan favourite because he literally didn’t give a s@!% about what people thought of him- especially the Lannisters. He really was the knight in shining armour for Tyrion, until Gregor Clegane smushed his head so hard his brains poured out of his eyes. Graphic enough? Also, it could probably be one of the most nail biting moments of the season – true definition of a ‘trial by battle’.
3. Joffrey Dies at his own wedding
Okay we definitely knew this was going to happen, but at a wedding- his own wedding?! Well, obviously, did you guys not watch season 3 episode 9? Nothing good ever comes out of a wedding in Game of Thrones. This was the moment every single fan had been waiting for, unfortunately it came at a time when we sort of forgot about Joffrey. It should’ve happened in his prime douchebagerry days. Nevertheless, it was an epic scene, I didn’t know what to do, laugh/cry/clap, the makeup design on poisoned Joffrey was on point. Everyone says that the book readers must find it boring or ‘not as fun’ because we know what’s about to happen. Let me just say, I was so excited for this episode, for this scene, it was worth the 6 month 1200 page read. Trust me.
2. Tyrion Lannister greatest speech of all time and then kills Tywin Lannister (his father).
Don’t mind the long title- It’s because I couldn’t find a way of separating these two scenes, because they sort of come hand in hand in understanding what led Tyrion to do what he did. Tyrion’s speech in court showed all the pain and hurt he’s suffered through his entire life. Not only as a child, but seeing his love Shay walk onto the stand and admit to the court that she thought Tyrion was a ‘monster’, it was absolutely painful. After having a father that wants him dead, and Shay having left him for his father, what other choice did he have? He needed to make peace with King’s Landing before leaving, even if that meant killing his daddy while he was in the loo. I’ve discussed this with a bunch of people, and it was almost like everyone understood why it had to happen, but I don’t think anyone expected it to go down the way it did. Fact: Tywin is really dead, he’s not coming back. With everything Tyrion dealt with this season he really deserved a strong finish, of course it’s not just about Tyrion getting revenge, it’s also about the Kingdom. What the f is going to happen now that Prince Tommen doesn’t have Grandpapa to guide him? It might be the end of the blonde bobbleheads. Honourable Mentions: Jamie Lannister and the Eunuch who came out of the woodworks to help Tyrion escape.
1. Jon Snow and Ygritte
Okay so some people will definitely disagree with this one being the number one moment but as a female fan of the show – I love the love stories!! We’ve seen our fair share of romances through the seasons, but Jon Snow and Ygritte was definitely/most probably the greatest of all time. When I read this scene in the book I immediately wished I could see it play in front of me. Some days (because I truly contemplate the outcomes of GoT on a daily basis – usually on the subway) I wish more happened in that scene, I wish they got to have a little more privacy (hello there were arrows flying around), but I still feel like it was the right timing, and it was just a tragically beautiful scene. But wipe those tears away…did you know the actors who play Jon and Ygritte are dating in real life? That makes me feel much better, but is Jon Snow ever going to find true love? Or maybe he’s destined for something greater like Khaleesi, maybe these two major characters are just never going to find real love. Maybe they’ll find each other? Okay I need to stop.

The VMA’s are always a staple award show for young people in the movie/music/tv world. It’s not just a show for music’s finest, a lot of movie stars and TV actors show up and usually it turns out to be a really funny and entertaining show. Historically, musics biggest moments have been displayed at the VMA’s – we have Britney who made headlines more than once with her Madonna makeout session and her performance with the ‘snake’. Then there was Taylor Swift and Kanye West, member that? Britney with her Madonna performance, there was the Taylor Swift / Kanye West incident..Beyonce revealed her baby bump during a performance at the VMA’s (my favourite) and of course the Miley Cyrus twerk of 2013.
But with all of this hype around this award show- last night kinda sucked. I was waiting for Queen B the entire night, and obviously she was in the last slot because she was accepting the Vanguard award. The show was just really awkward, I don’t know who was directing in the control room but the show was riddled with technical difficulties, the audio was weird in the beginning, they would take to a camera and the camera would be moving around…it just wasn’t good. The 3 things that saved the show:
1. Beyonce singing her ENTIRE album in 20 minutes
2. Jay Pharoah impressions (Drake,Jay-Z,Kanye West)
3. Jimmy Fallon with the kiss cam, hug cam, give the person beside you $5
Some other memorable moments, Nicki Minaj had a huge wardrobe malfunction when she was performing on stage with Jessie J and Ariana Grande. After he ‘Anaconda’ performance she returned to the stage in a black jumpsuit but was holding what looked to be the broken front zipper of the outfit. She was using two hands the hold the outfit together so she looked extremely stiff on stage. Thankfully, Jessie J got her 15 seconds of fame by dancing around. Nicki went on to write about her malfunctoin on Twitter: “God is good. As long as a nipple didn’t come out to play, I’m fine. Love my team,”
Artist to Watch award didn’t go to Sam Smith…it went to….um what’s their name? The 5 girls that looked like they got styled at a more ratchet version of Forever 21. It was absolutely ridiculous, nobody knew who these girls were (Ok I did some research they’re called Fifth Harmony) Sam Smith is one of the biggest names out there right now, he probably has the song of the summer, and Katy Perry couldn’t take her hands off of him last night. MTV you should be ashamed.
Beyonce’s performance was amazing. She started off with ‘Mine’ ok I almost thought Drake was about to get on stage (even though he wasn’t their to accept his award earlier). And then she moved on through her entire secret album singing about a minute from each song, and then finally ending off with ‘XO’. Jay-Z and baby Blue walked on stage right after and Bay couldn’t even look at them without crying. Jay-Z called his wife the greatest entertainer of all time, Blue tried to say ‘mama’ into the microphone, Kim looked extremely jealous…and the show closed out to this. Thanks Bay for making that 2-hour wait totally worth it.
Honourable mentions: Video of the Year award went to Miley Cyrus who accepted her award by bringing a young man onto the stage, he spoke about his story and the story of all the homeless youth in Los Angeles. It was a very moving speech, and a surprising one from Miley, I mean one year ago she was grindin’ on a married man and now this? Maybe she redeemed herself? I don’t know.

Here it is! Fresh off the Comic-Con press the new season 5 trailer of AMC’s The Walking Dead.
So now that we’ve had some time to process the new trailer for the highly anticipated 50 Shades of Grey movie, let’s dig in and discuss.
I have to give credit to Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) who I never thought could pull off this role, I don’t know what I expected but it wasn’t her. Now having seen the trailer, I was completely mistaken. She absolutely kills it in the 2 minute teaser that shows her first encounter with Christian at his office. She’s got the role of ‘innocent virgin white girl’ nailed and I can’t wait to see their chemistry explode on the big screen. Okay so maybe explode wasn’t the right word to use there?
Moving on to the leading man, who I completely supported for this role since day one. When they named Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) I knew he wasn’t the man for the job. It was a huge sigh of relief when he dropped out and the casting directors announced Jamie Dornan would play the role of Christian Grey. I mean he’s gorgina, he has an accent (although we don’t hear that in the movie)…but I have to say I kind’ve didn’t like him in this trailer. Is it just me? He almost looks like an 18 year old guy whose just running the family business because his daddy would rather play golf than actually work. Right? Wrong? And then when he started talking about his ‘hobbies’, I was like ‘yeah right!…you!?’ then he shows Anastasia his sex room and I’m all like…’no that does not belong to you, you look like an alter boy’
So I’m a little conflicted right now because I don’t know what to make of this, I think the trailer was genius, the music (a special Beyonce version of Crazy in Love) hit the spot…but like everyone else my eyes are on Christian and I kind’ve expected a little more…’you scare the S*** outta me’ and less ‘it really looks like wardrobe picked out that suit for you, and you have no idea how to tie a tie’
Comments/Arguments. We need to discuss because the movie doesn’t drop until Valentine’s Day 2015.
If you haven’t seen the trailer, watch it below:
o.m.g. Just watch, let it sink in. We’ll discuss later.
