RIVERDALE: The Sticky Maple

We found this part of Riverdale’s third episode to be the highlight of our week. So before the new episode airs tonight, here’s our list of the funniest comments from Veronica’s sticky maple situation.

This post was co-written by The Sassy Gay.

10. CHERYL BLOSSOM – I usually pity the poor, but…

quote-10

The Hollywood Heroine: I didn’t really feel no ways about this one, is it an insult? Is it just like side commentary? It makes me feel like she forgot the rest of her joke. She makes the number 10 spot because I assumed she would’ve taken a harder shot. Three dotted endings are so overrated. Next…………

The Sassy Gay: I feel like Cheryl’s gotta keep it lowkey with her insults. Being queen bee at school only works if you have followers. And V could snatch that crown if she’s not careful. This was rude but def not too bad

9. SIMON SILVERSTEIN – Justice 4 Veronica Lodge!…Said no one ever!

quote-9

The Hollywood Heroine: LOL this was just straight up rude! It sounds to me like Simon would definitely be voting for someone like Trump so I already don’t like him. Also Simon, nobody would ever say Justice 4 Veronica Lodge because that just sounds stupid. So yeah, your insult sucked and your Instagram feed probably does to.

The Sassy Gay: SO straight up savage. Just point blank calling out V. This one got me – these Riverdale kids don’t let up

8. ADAM CHISHOLM – Who ordered the nasty girl? Not me…

quote-8

The Hollywood Heroine: We have two Adams on this list, but this one seems to be the party pooper out of the two. This Adam is not down for the nasty which is kind of boring. You’re very G-rated Adam, and we’re sorry you felt you had to admit that.

The Sassy Gay: This Adam is SO rude. And “Nasty girl”? Was he watching the Trump vs. Hillary debates or something?

7. ADAM MCDONALD – Wait actually – I’d still go 4 it. Don’t mind sloppies

quote-7

The Hollywood Heroine: On the other hand, I like this Adam more. He’s totally straight up, no shame in the game and he basically admits he’s down for the V regardless of the sticky maple sitch.

The Sassy Gay: Ugh so gross. Boys totally suck. I didn’t think people still abbreviated words with numbers. Adam’s gotta work on his comment game

6. LINA MURRAY – OMG. U gotta go V. Stop giving us a bad rap #stickymaple #BYE

quote-6

The Hollywood Heroine: Who’s giving who a bad rap LINA? The last time I checked Beyonce told us all to be feminists so why you joining in on this slut-shaming Instagram post? Why don’t you stop giving women a bad rap and check what team you’re playing for. #girlbye

The Sassy Gay: HASHTAG STICKY MAPLE. Can we please make that a thing???

5. FRANKIE VALDEZ – Girrrrll…GET! IT! TOGETHER!

quote-5

The Hollywood Heroine: I like Frankie, because Frankie legitimately seems like he/she is worried about V.  Like Frankie just wants V to get her sh** together and win at life. So I’m okay with Frankie, but also Frankie – caps lock isn’t cool and you just sound really aggressive. We appreciate you Frankie.

The Sassy Gay: LMAO. Realistically he should’ve opted for the “U” version of GURRRRRRRL. And true, he’s lowkey rooting for her? Maybe??? (Just trying to be hopeful on these harsh ass comments)

4. ACE MCDONALD/MCDOLAND – [We can send this girl back to NYC but we have 2 buy another ticket 4 her eyebrows.] [Actually, make that 2 more tickets. 1 for each eyebrow]

quote-4

The Hollywood Heroine: I love Ace because Ace felt like one comment wasn’t enough, so he clicked back to the comments section and dropped another shot at V. Also I died at this one because he was taking shots at her eyebrows, and that hits hard because we take our eyebrows very seriously. Her brow game is strong though so she shouldn’t worry. Also, looks like thats a typo – somebody getting fired in the graphics department.

The Sassy Gay: HAHAHAHAH. TWO COMMENTS! I love that he just came hard at her. One thing to note as well is when you watch that scene, there is a reaction shot of V reading them and she mouths “eyebrows”. DEAD.

3. BERK COOK- LEAVE R’DALE PLZ. U R GROSS. TAKE UR STICKY SELF BACK 2 NYC SO THE RATS CAN EAT U CUZ U DON’T EVEN HAVE AN APT ANYMORE.

quote-3

The Hollywood Heroine: Okay this one had me laughing the hardest because he literally wrote an essay to insult her. He couldn’t even spell Riverdale in its entirety, and then legit went all the way to introduce animals and the fact that she doesn’t have a residence in NYC anymore. Berk Cook, you are amazing.

The Sassy Gay: Lol Berk. The most full storyfied insult I’ve ever seen. I also love that he is lit-er-all-y shortening a tiny town. Like whyyy?

2. MIKE GOLLIGER – Wow fam, how ratchet is New Girl?

quote-2

The Hollywood Heroine: I think it’s safe to say Mike is a New Girl fan, because that sh** was properly capitalized like the TV show. But also, I love how family oriented he is when he’s slut shaming V on fake Instagram, he’s making her ratchet-ness known to all of his ‘fam’.

The Sassy Gay: AHAHAHAH. FAM, Riverdale trying real hard to be current with their slang. Good job, fam. Super current.

1. ANGEL ANGELINO  – Go back to New York, you nasty doe

quote-1

The Hollywood Heroine: Oh you nasty doe. I love this one just because it’s straight to the point and so savage. Also I love how somebody was like don’t write it with ‘though’ write it with ‘doe’. Amazing.

The Sassy Gay: I couldn’t stop laughing at all of these but this one killed me so hard. You’re right – so short and abrupt. No bull-sh, just full out shade

VIEWS FROM THE 6: ALBUM REVIEW

drake-views
VIEWS sign in Toronto.

Cold, ice cold. Cold in a minus 20 in the 6 way. Cold in the way “VIEWS” formerly known as “VIEWS FROM THE 6” starts off. With the air howling, it sends shivers down every person’s spine who knows how cold winters get in our city.

 

Much of Drake’s highly anticipated spring album titled “VIEWS” leaves a lot of his haters out in the cold (sorry Marques Houston), but somewhere in the middle Drake takes us into summer and that’s really all we can hope for.

I’ll start off by saying my favourite album from Drake is hands down Take Care, it’s an album where I still play it through in full four years later. You get a sense of what type of Drake I’m down for, having said that I think “VIEWS” is a great album; I just don’t think it hit the target of what I was hoping for it to be. I think that’s what happens when something is so hyped like “Views from the 6” was, Drake hyped It up as an ode to Toronto, but then removed the 6 from the album name a few days before the drop.

And it’s not like the album is riddled with Toronto references any more than his other albums. Sure, Weston Road Flow is titled after a major road in Toronto, cool. He talks about the TTC, how original. Vince Carter, been gone.

Still, I’m down for this cold angry version of Drake. His beats are harder, right off the top on ‘Keep the Family Close’ the back end of the track has some harsh beats that hit you, then he talks about how he turned the 6 upside down, literally titling the track ‘9’. He even samples DMX at the beginning of ‘U With Me?’ aka the angriest person alive.

But this angry Drake also has a lot to say, and he says it straight up, with no holding back. On ‘U With Me?’ he talks about other artists putting a price on his songs, ‘A lotta n***as cut the cheque so they could take this flow’. He gets a little playful in ‘Weston Road Flows’ referencing a popular Vine saying, ‘I’m lookin’ at the first week numbers like what are those!’ At the end of the track, he quietly samples Jelleestone’s ‘Money Can’t Buy Me Happiness’ remember that song?

Then there’s Drake and all the girls. We don’t know who all these girls are, and maybe there isn’t a whole bunch of girls, maybe it’s like two girls, but he definitely makes it sound like there’s a whole lot going on there and it’s all juicy. He makes you want to listen, like listen real hard, drown out the background beat and just listen to his words. You’re waiting for the Ri drop, and then it happens on ‘Hype’, ‘You cannot be right next to me, Don’t you see Riri right next to me?’ I don’t know what his intention was with the girl at the beginning of ‘Faithful’ but it’s laughable. “Drake: You expensive you know that? Girl: I’m high maintenance but not in a negative way. I just like extremely expensive things” The part that made me laugh the hardest was the opening voice over of ‘Child’s Play’, “Breaking News my n***as, if your girlfriend has went to any season opener basketball game, best believe she’s f****** somebody on the basketball team”

So is it entertaining? Yes. Is it TTC commute and/or delayed due to an emergency alarm activated on another train worthy? For sure. Are there some tracks I advise you to stray from? Yes. ‘Summers Over Interlude’ is the shortest track on the album and it really is some mellow interlude-y track that doesn’t really go anywhere. Listen to it, hear the words, and then you’ll probably never go back there. Besides, who wants to sing about the summer being over when it hasn’t even begun? I’m not crazy about ‘Redemption’, it’s super slow, and barely has a beat to it, it reminds me of ‘Cece’s Interlude’ from Thank Me Later.

Drake, I still don’t forgive you for removing the 6 from the album name, but obvi I love you. Bye.

The Affair Who Killed Scott Lockhart? SEASON FINALE

Showtime > HBO…Showtime > HBO. I won’t say it again but really Showtime over HBO!! Last night was the season finale of The Affair it was a brilliant ending to a complicated and hectic two seasons. (Haven’t watched the Homeland finale yet but I’m sure it’s just as amazing) I don’t want to recap the entire episode, I want to go through all the WTF – moments the finale had to offer so let’s get into it.

theaffair-noahalison

The episode started off with Noah’s point of view and he’s back in Montauk for Cole’s wedding. Which let me just say here, the fact that Noah/Helen/Margaret even showed up to Cole’s wedding seems very unbelievable. Okay so Alison owns the Lobster Roll but still she didn’t really need to be there. And okay Margaret did pay for the wedding, but did Helen really need to drive out from the city, leave her children to attend this random guy’s wedding? No. But I love you The Affair and you make me want to ignore all logical reasoning.

WTF-moment #1

(theses are in sequence of the episode)

In Noah’s point of view Alison tells Noah (during Cole’s wedding but away from everyone) that he’s not Joanie’s father, well he might be, but it also might be Cole’s kid. Noah doesn’t take this lightly, and tells Alison he ‘never wants to see her again’.

WTF-moment #2

Now we’re at the halfway point of the wedding and things are getting a little f***** up. Noah and Helen ditch the party and head to the beach to drink more. Helen is turnt up and decides to take off her clothes and run into the water (yay wild hippie Helen), Noah follows her out into the water (also this show loves water and anytime we see water something drastic happens). Noah and Helen return to the party but neither one wants to go back inside. They are obviously way too drunk to drive but that’s what they decide. Noah insists Helen drive but she can’t, and reminds him she already has a DUI. Noah drives, and they’re on the windy road that keeps appearing in Noah’s visions. It’s a foggy night and he starts to trip out, seeing Alison on the side of the road in the fog. He pulls over and tells Helen he’s too messed up to drive.

theaffair-theswitch

I have to say I love this scene, or this shot in particular of the front of the car, fog all around, and all you see are their two bodies switching positions. This is the shift point in what really goes down that night, it was so spooky. Helen starts to drive the car, and Noah holds her hand and she looks at him for way too long as they have a moment. Their moment is cut off when Helen hits something, like really hits something. She keeps driving but Noah insists she pull over because it definitely wasn’t a deer. Helen’s all like spaced out and insisting it was just a deer. Noah gets out of the car and runs back to find Scott dead and bloody on the road. You can hear screaming from Helen from inside the car, Noah is freaking out, and then he awkwardly looks into the bushes on the side of the road, as if he sees something. Runs back to the car, obviously they switch seats again. Noah drops Helen off at her moms and then goes to wash the blood off the car. So that’s it right? This entire time we were blaming Noah, Whitney, but Helen? No wonder she insisted on paying his legal fees.

WTF– moment #3

theaffair-alisonuhoh

Now we’re in Alison’s perspective. There is a whole lot that is different in her perspective, starting off with what she’s wearing, what her apartment looks like. But the biggest difference is how she tells Noah that Joanie isn’t his daughter. In the middle of the wedding, Scott shows up, sober. Everyone is praising him for going to rehab. He approaches Alison and tells her he’s ready to help out with the Lobster Roll and it’s been his only source of hope while he’s been away. She’s all like what are you talking about you’re not working here. And then Cole comes along and tells Scott he’s definitely not going to be involved until he really kicks his drinking habit, not just a 3 month thing. A few minutes later Scott corners Alison and reminds her that he knows the baby is Cole’s but he won’t tell anyone if she helps him. Blackmail at its finest. It’s here where we see Oscar overhearing their conversation. Also who invited him!? This guest list seems way too open. So Scott freaks out and decides to get up on stage and sing ‘House of the Rising Sun’ and Alison is super worried at this point. So it’s here where she almost whispers to Noah that Joanie isn’t his daughter, and all we see is an extreme close up of Alison’s face. You don’t really know if Noah hears her, but you do see his hand drop from her shoulder once she says it. Ugh it was such a beautiful scene. But WTF? Did he hear her? I’m assuming he did, because he knew in the end.

WTF-moment #4

theaffair-noahalisondancing

What really happened. Alison decides to leave the party for a little while, where was she even going? Also is there only one damn road in this town? She starts walking on that same foggy windy road, (so obviously Noah wasn’t dreaming, he really did see Alison walking) Alison gets to the little row boat that’s the sign for The End hotel. She sees Scotty lying in it, drinking more. But, how did he get there so fast? Wasn’t he singing a few minutes ago? I guess timelines don’t really matter at this point, it is the end after all. So Scott pretty much attacks Alison, he’s basically about to rape her when she pushes him into the road and that’s when Helen hits him, dead on. Alison runs into the bushes while she watches Noah run out of the car to see Scott’s body. But then something really weird happens. Noah sees Alison hiding in the bushes. They fully see each other and stare for quite a few seconds, until Alison starts whispering ‘I pushed him, I pushed him’ What’s with her this episode? She keeps whispering everything!! Noah runs back to the car and drives off.

WTF-moment #5

theaffair-noah

After all is said and done, I don’t think it woud’ve made sense if Noah was the killer. It was just too obvious and the fact that he was already on trial didn’t seem like the greatest bombshell plot twist. But the writers did give us an ending that we can believe, and that is truly a plot twist. What is there wasn’t just one killer? Noah is in love with two women, both of whom essentially killed Scott Lockhart. Did Helen hit him with her car? Or did Alison push Scott into the road leaving Helen no chance to stop in time? It’s an ending to this two season story that is so two sided you really don’t know how to feel. You really don’t want Helen to pay for it, and you don’t want Alison to go down for it, because really whose fault is it anyways? Is it Noah’s for even merging all these people together, maybe if it wasn’t for him there would’ve been no wedding for Alison to walk away from, there would be Noah back in Montauk, etc etc. But here we are, at the end, and Noah needs to make a decision in his trial, whether or not to put Alison in a pickle. His lawyer is advising him to throw some heat at Alison (that annoying detective found the rock with her name and table number on it). Alison begs Noah not to say anything, she thinks the jury will ruin her, and he tells her he needs to protect Helen because she is the mother of his children. Inside the courtroom, Noah’s lawyer presents the court with a new witness. But right at that moment Noah gets up and tells the court he’s guilty, and that he did it. And then he awkwardly looks back at Alison like I’m saving you, did nobody else in the courtroom see that?? Also where was Helen! She wasn’t even there, maybe she ends up on the west coast after all. But wow what an ending. Personally, I think he did the right thing, if there is a ‘right’ choice in this story. But I don’t think I would’ve wanted to see anyone else go down for it.

What did you guys think of the finale? How will this shape season three? Can we move on from this murder mystery to bigger plot lines?

 

 

AHS HOTEL: ‘Room 33’ RECAP

I hate to admit this but I’ve been searching for points in the season that are going to disappoint me and eventually make me hate the season entirely. But the new season of American Horror Story: Hotel hasn’t done that just yet, and I’m starting to believe that I’m not going to be disappointed with this season. Like any other American Horror Story season, there’s a lot of stories floating around. The writers bring in a lot of characters, and then slowly disperse them or connect them to each other. We’re now in episode six of the Hotel season and things are starting to come full circle nicely. BTW, this recap will have spoilers. BTW, Will Drake has a nice butt.

willdrake-ahs

Lady Gaga: I think everyone had their uncertainties about Lady G filling the shoes of Jessica Lange, but she’s done an amazing job with her character this season. [Confirmed Gaga will return for the next season of AHS- whatever that may be] As the season progresses, I’m more enamored by her character and her motivations. I had a discussion with a friend a few weeks back and we were talking about Gaga being the villain of this season, and whether or not she’s supposed to be. Is she a villain? Should we assume she is mostly evil and a little nice? Or is she just a really complex character that has a good heart. Well, if you watched this week’s episode you probably know the answer to that. And it’s ironic that I was asking that question because I knew right from the start of this week’s episode, Tristan and Liz Taylor weren’t going to make it out alive.

As much as we’ve seen her give life to some characters, and in most cases she literally gave life to them or brought them back to life, she has a sense of ownership over them and she expects them to be loyal to her. She exudes this nurturing motherly figure, but really their happiness isn’t her concern, and her killing Tristan just shows that it’s all about her.

But an important flashback from this episode, 1924 Gaga shows up at the Murder House (season 1) to visit the doctor that everyone’s been raving about – the abortion doctor! Except Gaga isn’t having a baby, she’s having a demon baby. And when the doc pulls it out, it’s still alive and attacks the nurse. The better world would be slaughtered. But I guess since then Gaga has kept this demon baby  – Bartholomew hidden in Room 33, and for good reason that ish is fugly.

Demonbaby-ahs

Bartholomew: Super exciting that the entire time Gaga is kidnapping children around Southern California, she has a real baby of her own locked up in room 33. I mean it’s not a real baby, the face is pretty much torn off, and it has little beady eyes like a shark, but I mean it still came out of her V so it’s hers. We know about the baby because of the flashback, and then we see Gaga saying goodbye to it before she goes to Paris, and then Buffy the Vampire Slayer shows up at the hotel and wants to see little Bart. When Angela Bassett’s character enters room 33, she’s attacked by the demon baby. Also by this point we haven’t seen the demon baby yet. But anyways, John (Wes Bentley) is leaving the hotel after a bloody threesome, and before he zips up his suitcase demon baby hops into it! And then when John gets home demon baby escapes and lurks around the house. Scarlett is downstairs eating popcorn when dad sees the demon baby and shoots at it. Demon baby scurries off leaving a trail of blood. Scarlett gets sent back to her grandmothers, wow Chloe Sevigny is a ruthless mother she didn’t even want to look at her daughter now that she has Holden. Still outside, Chloe sees the demon baby and picks it up and brings it back to the hotel. When Lady Gaga returns she looks all worried and Chloe’s all like don’t worry I saved your baby just like you saved mine. And in the moonlit room Gaga doesn’t look so evil holding her demon baby.

Matt Bomer: Seems pretty useless right now, but he feels the need to preach to the two Swedish girls that died earlier in the season. “Find your purpose” he tells them, and I really hope he’s not quoting Justin Bieber. Ugh.

Liz Taylor: Is in love with Tristan and Tristan is in love with Liz Taylor! Who would’ve thought these two would fall for each other?

Tristan ‘When I come down to the lobby it’s like you’re genuinely happy to see me, I believe you’ Liz Taylor ‘You’re not gay for being with me, I’m a girl. Thank you for seeing the girl’

How cute are they though!? But you know sh**s about to go down because Tristan is Gaga’s boy toy and ain’t nobody going to steal her toys. Liz Taylor knows they’re screwed but he can’t help himself. PS, how much are you loving these 80s beats in the background? Gaga is too busy with Will Drake, until she’s not busy because uh…Will Drake is not a fan of the ladies. One quick text from the Countess ‘Cum up’ to Tristan and he knows he has to go.

iphone-ahshotel

A. I love that Tristan calls her the Countess in his phone book B. His battery is charged fully even late into the night and C. Her spelling.

Long story short, when Tristan and Liz Taylor tell Gaga, she says okay you can have each other. And then she kills Tristan!!! Not shocking but totally ruthless!

AHS HOTEL: ‘Room Service’ RECAP


‘I never knew how to live ‘til I died’, ‘You see everything when the world doesn’t see you’ were just some of the fantastic quotes from this week’s episode of American Horror Story: Hotel ‘Room Service’ This season is packed with different through line stories, but with every great Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk season it’s the beauty in the little things that make it entertaining.

Tonight, much like this week’s episode of Scream Queens was definitely a filler episode, but that doesn’t mean a filler episode can’t be just as cool.

Chloe Sevigny: Let’s start off with her because that’s how the episode starts. She’s sort of recovering from her vampire transformation, she’s doing the best she can with her pasty white skin and that sickly child with the measles. He’s on the verge of death now and so his mother is finally worried about him. But nothing seems to be working to save the kid, so Chloe takes a quick blood break in the nurse’s closet and swallows a few packs of the red juicy juice. Once her mind is back at ease and her thirst is quenched, she heads back to the boys room and injects his iv with her own blood, passing on the eternal life thingy that Gaga gave to her. So the kids magically healed, his mother is super impressed and takes her child back home just in time for Halloween day at school. Yay! Except the kid can’t even make it to school before he needs his blood supply and ends up killing his own mother in the kitchen, right before catching his yellow school bus!

ahs-hotel,americanhorrortstory,ryan-murphy

Angela B: Is back for a quick scene with Matt Bomer and his sickly mother, who is also in the middle of her transformation. (She was about to die but then her son Matt Bomer gave her the power of eternal life) So basically this vampire curse is just floating around right now and everyone is becoming a bloodsucker. This is low key the beginnings of Fear the Walking Dead right now. So anyways Matt Bomer convinces Angela that his mother can infiltrate the supreme Gaga, and they put her to work.

Kathy Bates: Enters the Hotel Cortez in fear of Gaga finding out that she’s been transformed into a blood sucker. She doesn’t want Gaga to know the truth, so she spends some quality time with Liz Taylor and that guy from Glee. Glee hipster and his hipster girlfriend check into the Cortez on the night of Halloween to get away from all the strollers and whiny kids. They want to smoke and chill in peace, and male hipster heard that the Cortez was owned by famed designer Will Drake so they decide to pop in. Kathy Bates is already been done with their hipster vibes and you already know she’s about to get freaky. But it gets better, the two hipsters order some room service ‘grilled romain and pate’ After taking their order Kathy’s about to have a major meltdown when Liz Taylor steps in and decides to help her. They go to the hotel kitchen where Liz Taylor admits that he’s not actually gay, he just wanted to be a woman and then Kathy bluntly says ‘I look at you and all I see is questions’ and so Liz Taylor throws us into his flashback life circa 1984.

ahs-hotel,lady-gaga

Liz Taylor: Aka Nick, a man with a family who worked in a field where he would get to fly all over the world and in doing so stay in his very own, very private hotel room. It would be here where he would undress, and dress as a woman. Except this time, he’s visited by Gaga who tells him ‘You walk like a man, dress like a man but smell like a woman’  She offers to help him become the goddess he was meant to be. Isn’t this Lady Gaga in her true self? I love it. And so Liz Taylor becomes Liz Taylor. And then he tells Kathy Bates to do whatever she wants and to not take sh** from nobody. And she goes right up with some cat food dressed as pate and murders both the hipsters with a wine bottle opener. Classic but so good.

Halloween: One of the craziest moments of the season goes to that random kid who had measles. He goes to school, bites the girl he has a crush on, and then everyone is just going buck wild, murdering their teacher then the principal. The school inevitably goes into a lockdown, but when the special forces arrive they’re looking for a man in a black mask, the kids magically know to listen to the kid with the measles and they’re all about to get away with murder. Take that Viola Davis!

Officer John Lowe: Gets fired for telling his boss about the devil’s night dinner with all the serial killers and has sex with Sally

Chloe Sevigny: Is back at the hotel where Gaga tells her she’s going to spend the rest of her life with Holden, but she’ll also be taking care of the other children. Which means Gaga definitely knows something’s up with Kathy Bates and is going to take her out. The final shot of the episode is Holden and his mother getting into his coffin. Ugh so creeps.

The Affair Season 2!

So one of my favourite shows of last season Showtime’s The Affair premiered its second season on Sunday and it was super exciting because we were going to see a whole new perspective from our characters. If you don’t know about this show, it’s about two people having an affair and the entire show gets split into different fragments that convey different perspectives. So for the first season it followed the two people that were having the affair Noah and Alison. The episode would split into two perspectives, and you would see things that would be different in each story. Much like how the world works, we all see things differently and that shapes so much of how the story is told.

maura-tierney-the-affair

Now the second season is going to include the perspectives of the husband and wife of the two people that had the affair. Following? Helen played by Maura Tierney and Cole played by Joshua Jackson. Although Noah was our central character last season, I was still rooting for Helen all while enjoying what Noah and Alison were experiencing. Which doesn’t happen that often especially with a story like the affair, you always seem to take one side. Regardless, I’m super excited for the spotlight to be on Helen this season, and there’s an interesting point I read that I never really thought much of. The season last year we see Helen through Noah’s perspective, so much of what we see of her this season is going to be her, and not the way Noah wants us to see her. How cool does that sound? I really appreciate the talent that’s behind this show it’s a pretty basic story, but the way they’ve decided to tell it makes it one of the best shows out right now.

While all the drama is happening between Helen and Noah’s divorce, there’s also a murder case happening and Noah is the prime suspect. Just to bring you in the loop and intrigue you a little more.

So all we’ve seen from the first episode is Noah and Helen’s perspectives, and maybe next week we’ll get to see more of Joshua Jackson, yay!
