SCORPION Sneak Peek: Night at the Museum


The fallout from Walter and Happy’s big marriage announcement happens in this week’s SCORPION. Now that Toby knows two things — first, that Walter and Happy are married for immigration purposes, and second, that Happy is pregnant — he’s understandably eager for her previous marriage to end so he and Happy can get married. Unfortunately, Walter’s green card may prove more difficult to get than they had imagined.

Meanwhile, Team Scorpion is hired for a private job this week at the Los Angeles Museum of Science and History. Cabe tags along, interested in a few of the exhibits. Unfortunately, the simple job becomes very complicated when they discover thieves robbing a rare gem exhibit in order to get materials needed to enrich a nuclear bomb.

Don’t miss an all new episode of SCORPION tonight (October 24) at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS (U.S.) and CityTV (Canada).

SUPERNATURAL Photos: Mary Joins Sam and Dean on a Case

“Saving people, hunting things” has been the Winchester family motto since the very beginning of SUPERNATURAL. And while Mary hasn’t really had many opportunities to do this (save for a few appearances by her younger self as a hunter), she will have an opportunity to investigate a case alongside her boys early on in the season.

Episode 12.03, titled “The Foundry”, finds the Winchesters investigating a rather strange case. A crying baby leads to a death in a mysterious abandoned house (never a good type of house to be in), which leads to the Winchester family investigating the case. According to a preview for the episode, the case looks like a spooky one.

Meanwhile, Castiel is still on the hunt for Lucifer after unleashing the devil on an unsuspecting world last season. But in order to catch him, he’s going to need to team up with Crowley. The angel and demon are going on a good old fashioned road trip.

Browse through photos above for an all new episode of SUPERNATURAL airing on Thursday, October 27 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

SUPERGIRL Sneak Peek: We’re With Her

In a year full of divisiveness over politics and ideology, SUPERGIRL weighs in among the pundits and prognosticators.

On Supergirl’s Earth, the electorate already has voted a woman into office as President, and that woman is none other than Lynda Carter, aka WONDER WOMAN.

Carter, a standard bearer among young girls in the 1970s, the former Miss World USA portrayed a character that not only was beautiful, she was strong, dynamic and could hold her own in the traditionally male role of a superhero.

Still on that track at 65-years-old, tonight Carter portrays an American President who touts the idea of inclusiveness on alien rights vs. human rights issues.

While that seems like it is targeted for this election season, inclusiveness has been a hallmark of comic books for decades. Martians, Kryptonians and Daxamites, as well as humans changed into non-human creatures, all shared the graphic novel landscape.

In fact, this year, Wonder Woman earned the distinction as a United Nations honorary ambassador for the empowerment of women and girls. While that seems quite a feat for a comic book character, Wonder Woman has quite a backstory. She was created by William Moulton Marston, inventor of the lie detector.

On tonight’s episode of SUPERGIRL, “Welcome To Earth,” Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the DEO are assigned to protect President Olivia Marsdin (Carter) and bring in the party responsible for attacks on the President.

A possible suspect is new alien Daxamite arrival, Mon-El (Chris Wood), who has escaped from the DEO. Alex (Chyler Leigh) teams up with Detective Maggie Sawyer (new cast member Floriana Lima) to investigate. Is the perpetrator an alien? Or is someone instigating that idea to turn humans against their alien neighbors?

Rachel Talalay directed “Welcome To Earth,” which was written by Jessica Queller and Derek Simon.

SUPERGIRL airs tonight (October 24) at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW in the U.S. and on Showcase in Canada.

ONCE UPON A TIME 6.05 Recap: Secrets, Sacrifices and Lies


Last night’s ONCE UPON A TIME continued the trend of incredibly solid episodes it has been pulling off since season 6 started a few weeks ago. With the exception of the the second episode, this season has been pretty fantastic and – despite my initial reservations, the Evil Queen is doing wonders for this show.

Lana Parrilla continues to be absolutely breathtaking in her job, and I admit I almost forget that the Evil Queen and Regina are played by the same person. Regina is so serious now and so intent on helping, while the Evil Queen is just delightful. Even though she is evil incarnate, she is just light and funny and sarcastic and I would seriously watch an hour of the Evil Queen being fabulous. Now that she has paired up with Zelena and is slowly turning the Wicked Witch back to the dark side – which is her best, most entertaining self – those two will be a force to be reckoned with.

That SPA day scene was just so entertaining – especially with them discussing if they had ever been involved with the Dark One – that I just had a ridiculous grin on my face for the entire thing. Even though Archie had been kidnapped and forced to be a babysitter to little Robin, they put him in a spot that allowed the two villains to be fantastically funny.

That said, I just absolutely adored the Agrabah flashbacks. It has been a solid 20 years since I last saw Alladin – and I was never much of a Disney girl – but I remember that Alladin was one of the movies that I actually really liked. Seeing Jasmine and Alladin in those outfits made me feel like I was 8 years old again and that the cartoon I watched as a kid had just come to life. And that is the biggest compliment I could ever give them.

The way they connected both stories was really well done and I was actually surprised to find out that Alladin did give up his powers. For a moment there, I actually believed he was dead and, to be honest, I don’t know what is the worst for Emma – him being alive or dead. Because if he were dead, that would mean she was really destined to die. But if he gave up his powers and then Agrabah fell, then that means that if she were to do the same, Storybrooke is doomed. Poor Emma just can’t catch a break.

But what I really loved in this episode was that Emma finally came clean and told her family everything. Those quiet family moments are what make this show great and we were sorely missing those lately. Maybe that’s why I like this season so much. Of course, the Evil Queen forced her hand, but this is the Emma that has grown and evolved since season 1. This was the Emma that we had last seen in the season 5 finale – not that scared, I-can-do-everything-by-myself shadow of a character we had been treated to in the past four episodes. So kudos for that.

But it’s like they can’t have one single moment of happiness. I love my CaptainSwan. I really do. I’ll be honest and confess that they’re the reason I still stick around, five years later. But they’re just repeating the same tired old formula every single season. When one of them has a breakthrough and takes a step forward, the other goes and does something incredibly stupid and takes ten steps back. And I get it. I really do understand why Killian did what he did, but my god, man, what part of the “let’s not keep secrets from each other anymore” memo did you not understand?

Why, why would you lie to Emma? I know you’re afraid to lose her, but you’re missing the bigger picture here. You’re risking an entire town and all the people in it. God only knows what may happen if you force Emma to give up her powers. But then again, why does everyone always take a villain at their word? Who says that those visions are actually true?

I don’t know. What I know is – there’s no more ONCE UPON A TIME if they kill the Savior, so they are going to figure something out. And Emma is not giving up her powers because she would never sacrifice Storybrooke just to save herself. So it’s going to be okay. There may be a bumpy ride ahead, but our girl Emma will be just fine in the end.

And on a last note, I absolutely loved that touching moment between Emma and Henry in the crypt. It had been a while since we last had such a great scene between Jennifer Morrison and Jared Gilmore, but they really knocked it out of the park. It felt like season 1 all over again.

ONCE UPON A TIME airs Sundays at 8/7c on ABC (U.S.) and CTV (Canada).

CONVICTION Sneak Peek: Becoming the Poster Child for Regret


After last week’s drama-filled episode of CONVICTION ended with the very public revelation about Hayes getting caught with drugs and her subsequent cover-up employment at the CIU, its time to play damage control. But it’s not quite as simple as calling a friend at the New Yorker this time.

In the clip released below, we see that Wallace has set up a TV interview with what Hayes calls “the firing squad.” Apologizing and being the “poster child for regret” on national TV requires some preparation, which is where Hayes’ handler/dance-partner/big brother comes in! He has a “black-belt in Hayes Handling” and we get to see Hayes and her brother discussing a shared childhood as First Children, but also get an insight into the differences between them. Hayes was paraded around in the press as a prop for her parents’ agenda, while her brother was — self-proclaimed — “too fat and effeminate” to be used in the same way.

This childhood trauma has clearly had an effect on Hayes and her way of interacting with those around her, but one person who she seems to have a special connection with is Wallace. We will definitely have to see how they deal with the impromptu hook-up they had (which was then interrupted) last week. Wallace is disappointed they got cut short, but Hayes informs him it was probably for the best.

Be sure to check out the growing tension between these two in a new episode of CONVICTION tonight (October 24) at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC (U.S.) and CTV (Canada).

ELEMENTARY Sneak Peek: Sherlock Helps Captain Gregson’s Girlfriend With a Case


Paige, Captain Gregson’s girlfriend, approaches Sherlock with a private case in this week’s ELEMENTARY.

When Paige introduces herself to Sherlock, she explains that she believes her doctor/his staff are engaging in “criminal malfeasance”. She’s noticed that some of the women in the office have upgraded their clothing and jewelry lately and is suspicious about how they may have found the extra money. She doesn’t want to bring the matter to Gregson’s attention because he’ll go charging right in, so she asks Sherlock to keep the matter quiet for now. Later, he learns a secret about her.

Elsewhere, Sherlock and Joan are recruited to help the NYPD with a case involving an abducted woman. The first stop? A nudist colony.
