The Agents Of SHIELD Are On A Field Trip To The 1930s For Its 7th And Final Season!

This is a recap-review of Agents of SHIELD Season 7 Premiere episode

(SPOILER Alert! – If you’ve not seen the season 7 premiere of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, you should leave and go talk about #TheMatter with your friends. 🤧

Daisy and the rest of what’s left of the Agents of SHIELD have travelled back in time to the Prohibition Era (USA, 1930s) to save SHIELD in its early days. What they didn’t know is, to do that, they’ll have to save Hydra, too, as both organization’s destinies are intertwined.

That, ladies and gentlemen — with a near-perfect LMD Coulson, Daisy and Deke still giving us f*ckable vibes, a new version of Jemma without Fitz, and Chronicum scums literally stealing and erasing people’s faces– is how you kickstart a season!!! 🥳🥳🥳

2013 feels just like yesterday, but AoS is in its 7th and final season, which means we’ll be saying goodbyes to another beloved show, soon. 😫

I’ve got two words to describe this show – Resilent and Resourceful. It refused to give up even when most people hated its first season and didn’t want to give it another chance to get things right, and it made the best of the scrap the MCU (studio edition) left for it and kept on crafting spellbinding stories season, after season.

I’ll really miss it when it ends, and I can’t wait to enjoy the adventure the ’30s will unfold.

What about you? 🙂

HTGAWM: She is Annalise Fucking Keating! and She’s a Survivor.

This is a recap-review of the series finale of How to Get Away with Murder – s06e15

How to Get Away with Murder has ended, and TGIT nights won’t be the same again without AK and the Keating minions using the law to break the law.

The series finale has been receiving unanimous acclaims from fans all over the world, and I’ll tell you why.

It’s because it was a simple episode.

It didn’t try to play smart or add the same kind of jaw-dropping twists the show was well known for. It knew to not give more questions, but provide answers to already existing one, and that was a smart decision.

And so, we draw the curtains on what will unarguably go down in history as one of the best TV shows of it’s time. HTGAWM, one of the G.O.A.T.s!

Which moment from the series finale was your favorite? There were a lot, so feel free to make multiple choices.

For me, it just has to be the revelation of Alfred Enoch’s return as a grown-up Christopher and not Wes coming back form the dead.

Aside for the fact that I’m not Wes’s biggest fan 😈, the route the show went was better and, remember, simpler.

Simplicity isn’t always bad. Infact, HTGAWM has proven, once again, that simplicity is good and can be a tool to be reckoned with.

(Insert whichever show’s season finale you’re still not at peace with here 🤡)

Honorable mentions from the series finale:

Eve’s return.

The aging make-up and shots used.

AK + Tegan = 2geda 4eva.

Nate Lahey’s Center for Justice.

Gunshots at the Law court.

That sexy, jaw-dropping Spanish accent.

The death of the Governor.

Lonely, Michaela’s lonely.

Connor and Oliver, together forever.

HTGAWM: WTF Is Wrong With Nate?

This is a recap-review of How to Get Away With Murder s06e12

Fans of TV Murder, we’re getting closer to the end, yet ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ isn’t pulling any of its punches. Episode after episode, the show keeps throwing new twists and swings our way, hoping we remain constantly awed by its marvelous storytelling. But I think it teased one too many in this week’s episode and I’m not so sure I like it. I’ll leave the judgement till after next episode.

Sam and Hannah? I don’t think TV is ready for another Lannister plot so soon, especially not one that feels like an afterthought.

My Hate for Nate Continues to Fester.

Can we all agree there’s no worthy redemption in sight for that guy? Even when presented with all the facts he still chooses to act on his emotions like a cry-man-baby and undermine Annalise every chance he gets.

Killing Xavier Castillo was a dumb move. Nate doesn’t know it yet, but his action may have just helped nudge the Governor one step forward to getting away with everything. He helped her take care of a big loose end, and I’m sure she’d thank him if she could. How could he not see that?!

Talking about loose ends. What do you think will happen to Agent Pollock now that the whole gang knows she killed Asher? Who’s more inclined to send her on a trip to meet her maker? I think she’ll survive the show, though.

I wish I could talk about Annalise’s survival with the same kind of certainty. Although the court had the death penalty thrown off her case, thanks to the badass combo she and Teagan make, we know there’s still a coffin hanging around somewhere in her (near) future. So, unless something miraculous happens soon to support the theory of that funeral scene being a ruse, I’d say AK hasn’t really changed the future.

Me: She’s still headed for 6-feet
My conscience:Ain’t we all?

Enough about Annalise. I want to gloat over the two characters that may not have any future left after the FBI is done with them. You guessed it, Michaela and Connor. In order to support her case challenging the death penalty, AK had to provide evidence. Shockingly, but exhilarating to watch, she choose to give up these two instead of Gabriel. And I liked it. It’s about time AK starts teaching them what it really means to bite the hands that fed you.

What did you like most about this episode? Do you think Annalise giving Michaela and Connor up was uncalled for? What is the Governor’s beef with AK? Share your thoughts in the comment box.

PS: I’d almost completely forgotten about Robert. Good thing his return in this episode was just to further Annalise and Teagan romance plot. He can go now and never return, no one would miss him.

HTGAWM: We Now Know Asher’s Killer – Was It Who You Expected?

This is a review-recap for How to Get Away With Murder s06e11

I knew those kids turned on Annalise for nothing. See how they’ve played themselves. Haq-haq-haq!!! 😂

‘How to Get Away with Murder’ continues to thrill with its twists and unexpected turns. Few episodes to go before the series finale and we already know who killed Asher. Shocking? I thought so too.

Some might call the reveal of Asher’s killer as cheap writing, but I think the show needed to quickly get that off their plate for more intriguing revelations, like whether Annalise survives the show or not, and if Wes is truly still alive.

What better way to depict desperation to achieve one’s goal and the thin line between good and evil than having indicting the FBI as Asher’s killer(just like I rightly guessed last week). The situation surrounding Asher’s death was perfect catalyst for them to get Michaela and Connor to turn on Annalise, and now it’s game on for them.

In the coming episodes it’ll become clearer:

  • If Agent Pollack, who actually clubbed Asher to death, works for both the FBI and Xavier Castillo. Which of the parties gave the order to off Asher? And,
  • How deep in bed is Solomon with the FBI?

This episode really needed to happen. Annalise needed someone to propel her to fight tooth and nail to save herself from her many enemies, old (the Governor, the Castillos and the FBI) new (Laurel, Connor, Oliver and Nate), and whoever may still be lurking in the shadows. Thanks to her mom, Ophelia, we get an Annalise that’s ready to burn both bridges and people, metaphorically speaking, to clear her name.

Now it’s Annalise, Bonnie, Frank and Teagan vs The rest of the world.

It felt good to see Bonnie and Frank choose to stick with Annalise.

This is the content I signed up for. 😎

Here’s another prediction. Nate broke Annalise mother’s heart by allegedly turning in those files to the FBI, I feel like she won’t let that slide just easy. Let’s just say another house fire might happen. Only time will tell, though.

How to Get Away With Murder returns next Thursday!

HTGAWM: It’s Annalise Keating vs The World Now

This is a review-recap for How to Get Away with Murder s06e10

Everyone’s gunning for Annalise -the State, the Feds and, now, even her own students – no wonder she had to run.

Fans of saucy, dramatic TV murder, ‘How to Get Away With Murder’ is back for its final six episodes and things aren’t looking good for our favorite professor.

It’s ironic how Annalise Keating (AK) is the only one on the FBI’s radar who hasn’t actually killed anyone, but also the one they seem to have the hardest boner for. Makes you wonder how bad they are at their jobs, or how they just want to go with the perfect narrative that a Black law professor cajoled her impressionable students into killing her ex-husband and all the enemies that came after him, to cover her tracks. Cool story from their white perspective.

Remember how AK asked/blackmailed Solomon (Michaela’s dad) for help to run away, during the midseason finale? Well, that was for nought because she only got as far as Mexico.

In her defense, she never could’ve known Asher would be murdered and that Michaela and Connor would be picked up for it. Solomon did what any father would do, especially one trying to enter his grownup daughter’s life, he gave up Annalise in exchange for Michaela’s release.

So, the action is on… AK is back and obviously going to face trial thanks to Connor and Michaela’s testimony and I’m wondering who’d represent the Tigress vicious enough to go against the Supreme Court?

Teagan is good, but she’s no Annalise.

Eve? I doubt it.

Maybe AK will defend herself, who knows?

We still have to figure out who killed Asher, not like we really care, but it has to be solved before the show ends. Top on the list of suspects now -Frank and Gabriel. But, what if the FBI or the Governor actually killed Asher? Think about it, how his death was the final ingredient that provided all the evidence to nail AK?

And, also, how TF is Wes alive, that’s if that show isn’t a dream.

So many questions, one down, five episodes to go.

HTGAWM, welcome back _ the beginning of the end.

PS: Did you catch that scene where Annalise took off all her make-up and hair? It reminded me of that one from season one.

HTGAWM: Who Killed Asher?

Yeah, you read that right. HTGAWM pulled a fast one on us. All season, the show kept foreshadowing Annalise’s death whereas there was someone we should’ve been more worried about. RIP Mr. Millstone. No more wiggle wiggle from this one.

Welcome to my last recap this year for the number one crime-drama on TV (Don’t argue. Just go with it 😌). HTGAWM is going on a long hiatus and will return in April 2020 for its last six episodes.

With that out of the way, let’s dive into the episode.

Asher Was The Mole! 😥

Sad to believe but it’s true, Asher was the mole all along. The FBI held him tight by the balls to save his mom from jail he began to act like crazy Nate, blaming Annalise for all his problems and tried, unsuccessfully, to rope the others into his scheme. Can we give it up for Michaela eagle eyes. That babe continues to impress me. The way she figured out Asher was the culprit was some good observation skills, and to think that happened with her being high.

How these kids manage to always blame AK for all the wrong things they’ve done will remain one of the greatest mysteries of all time. They probably do it to make better sense of their lives and feel better. Weaklings they are, especially NATE LAHEY.

After Simon, I think Oliver has a boundary problem with the sanctity of human life. In fact, they’ve all got it but Oliver used to be the purest and now he’s been brought into the fold of murders and cover-ups, I think he doesn’t know how to stop. The fact that the first thing he could do when Asher came clean was to hit him in the head with a fireplace poker is quite scary.

But because Oliver’s the obvious culprit is what makes him the least likeliest to finish the job he started. I mean, what are the odds?

Another suspect is Annalise. Where did she go when she asked the driver to turn the car around? I guess we’ll never know until the show returns.

Other strong contenders for the glory of having killed Asher are Gabriel (it happened at his apartment); Tegan (if she could help Laurel escape, she could be guilty of anything now); Frank (he’d do anything to make Bonnie happy); Nate (unstable psycho); the Governor (anything to further implicate Annalise); or Oliver by technicality (probably the hit to the head was actually something to worry about).

Who’s your money on? Who killed Asher?

This episode had its shortcomings too. The whole retcon thing to implicate Asher as the bad guy felt so soap opera-ish, which isn’t a bad thing, but isn’t how I like my HTGAWM dish served. For what it’s worth, though, it’s a breath of fresh air for the show. For its final season, it’s got liberty to experiment some more.

How’s Wes Alive?!

Perhaps one of the biggest mysteries of this episode will be its very confusing timeline. At the tail end of the episode, we see Wes Gibbons, who we’ve thought dead for a long time (season 3) come forward to give a speech at Annalise’s funeral. It’s be good to note that this person isn’t called by the name “Wes”, he only shares his likeness. This means it could actually be Christopher, Wes’s son, and the scene is shot far into the future. Maybe no one killed Annalise after all. Maybe she got to live a long life and died happy. We won’t know for sure until the show returns for what’s been teased to be an exolosive conclusion to a stellar run.

Where will you be April 2, 2020?

Rinzy’s Rating: 3.5/5

HTGAWM: Who Kills Annalise?

I knew it! Annalise planned to fake her own death. With that confirmation in last week’s episode (s06e08), now, I really fear someone got to her because she could escape to safety.

Who did it?

Obvious answers would be the Castillos to the Governor, but my money’s on Nate. Nigga hasn’t been the same since his father died. Suddenly, he has forgotten all Annalise has done for him and only remembers all she did to him. If he had an accomplice, my money’s on Bonnie. Ungrateful bunch. Both of them can rot in hell; I’ll never forgive them for killing DA Ron Miller.

Side: You can check out my list of everyone who matters that has died on the show, using the link in my bio.

Frank and Annalise finally let the truth about Miller’s involvement in Nate Sr.’s death come out and Bonnie’s not having any part of it. The lie was all that kept Bonnie and Nate sane, that their decision to take Miller’s life was justified. Now that the truth is out, I’m guessing it’s what will push those two to turn on Annalise.
Well, if it’ll stop Frank and Bonnie from becoming an item, I welcome this change with partially-opened arms, though.
