SUPERNATURAL Photos: Doubts About the British Men of Letters

Mary is going to start feeling uneasy about the British Men of Letters on an upcoming episode of SUPERNATURAL.

In “Twigs & Twine & Tasha Banes”, Mary is starting to realize that working with the British Men of Letters may not have been the best idea. But the big question is: will they turn against her and try to kill her and/or her sons? And if they do, will the Winchester matriarch band together with her boys to try and take the Brits down?

Elsewhere in this episode, Alicia Banes (guest star Kara Royster) from the early season 12 episode “Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox” calls Mary for help after her mother, Tasha (guest star Alvina August), goes missing. But it’s Sam who answers Mary’s phone and when he learns what’s going on he and Dean head out to help Alicia and her twin brother, Max (guest star Kendrick Sampson), find their mother who was hunting a powerful witch.

SUPERNATURAL Sneak Peek: Castiel Returns With a Plan

spn

Castiel returns from Heaven in this week’s SUPERNATURAL and he’s come equipped with a new plan to deal with Kelly and her devil spawn.

We begin this week’s episode with the Winchester brothers discussing the nephilim situation. Apparently Sam has been digging into the research and learned that nephilims don’t need 9 months of gestation. In fact, he predicts that the child will be born on May 18 — which just so happens to be the night of the SUPERNATURAL two-hour season finale (coincidence, isn’t it?).

However, Sam and Dean still aren’t entirely sure what they’ll do with the baby once it’s born. Can they kill it? Do they have to? Enter Cas, who has returned from his little side trip back to angel land (where the phone reception is terrible, by the way). Will his plans for Kelly clash with those of the Winchesters? Only time will tell.

THE 100 Sneak Peek: Fight to Live or Fight to Die

the 100

After a month long break, THE 100 finally returns tonight with the episode “DNR,” which stands for the acronym and medical term “do not resuscitate.” This week’s episode is written by Miranda Kwok, a newcomer to the series who will also be back next year, and directed by Mairzee Almas. And as we’ll soon find out, there’s a whole lot in the world of Skaikru that could use resuscitating.

When we last saw the gang, Jaha, Monty, Kane and Indra had just discovered a secret Second Dawn bunker in Polis where 1200 people can gather to ride out the coming apocalypse. It’s quite a blessing after a number of setbacks have left them with no other options for survival. Only problem is that Clarke has already formed an alliance with King Roan and Azgeda, one which Trikru says they absolutely won’t allow. It’s now everyone for themselves and may the best clan win.

Meanwhile, not everyone is so excited to spend the next five years trapped within six walls again, particularly those who have already spent most of their lives on the Ark. Jasper, Harper and a number of others in what’s left of Arkadia lock themselves in a room, refusing to go and find refuge at Polis. Monty will have to try and convince them that it’s better to go and fight for their lives then stay and die.

At Becca’s lab, Raven has started hallucinating that the scientist and first commander is there and speaking to her. Maybe Becca will have the answers that will save them or this could be a sign that Raven’s mental state is getting much worse. Hopefully, Murphy and Emori are around and able to help her out.

Watch some sneak peeks from the new episode below. THE 100 airs tonight (April 26) at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

SUPERNATURAL Photos: A New Plan to Deal With the Nephilim

Lucifer’s baby has become a problem on SUPERNATURAL. Even though the child has yet to be born, the threat of its impending existence is striking fear in the hearts of our heroes.

In a late April episode of the show, Castiel returns from Heaven with a new plan. First, Sam comes up with a way to stop Lucifer’s baby, but Castiel has something else in mind to deal with Kelly and the nephilim. Kelly, meanwhile, seems tired of being controlled by the forces of Heaven and Hell and makes her own bold choice about the baby’s future.

Elsewhere in the episode, Dean is furious when he discovers that someone has stolen the colt.

iZOMBIE Preview: Peyton’s Friendship With Blaine Grows and Liv Gets Zen

izombie

Clive and Liv investigation the death of a lifestyle guru in this week’s iZOMBIE, causing Liv to take a zen approach to life after eating the victim’s brains.

Elsewhere in the episode, Peyton and Blaine grow even closer. Expect to see Peyton meeting with Blaine’s father tonight. During a visit to the set Aly Michalka said that this encounter will help Peyton understand why Blaine was the type of man he used to be: “We do have a scene with me and Blaine’s father and Blaine. But he’s not really using me against Blaine. I think it’s me being able to see Blaine’s past and the childhood he probably came up in. And by finding that out, [Peyton’s] able to have a little more sympathy for the choices he made in his life. And probably the reason he got caught up on the wrong side is because he had a horrible father who probably wasn’t a great father figure. I think if anything, seeing him, makes Peyton feel more sorry for Blaine.

Finally, the issue of the cure is going to play a part in tonight’s episode, particularly as Major’s time may be coming to an end. In fact, the fact that Major has a possible looming deadline is a big motivating factor for Ravi to figure out the cure once and for all, but the possibility of Major losing his memory is a big issue. Rahul Kohli said that “At the moment the best that we can do is cure it, but [you’ll] lose your memory, and that’s the situation that we’ve had which is why no one else has taken the cure like Liv. So Major’s borrowed time and his journey and what he goes through will obviously motivate Ravi’s need to get [cracking]. The last thing anyone wants right now, I mean, it’s almost like wake up. “Do you want to be who you are?” He’s dying regardless because he’s on borrowed time, but lose the Major we know and have a cured dude who doesn’t remember anything, doesn’t remember us, doesn’t remember Liv, or does he give in and we just lose Major altogether and he keeps his faculties until the very end? That’s kind of the dynamic they are in.”

iZOMBIE: Robert Buckley Teases Major’s Teenage Girl Phase and Working With Fillmore Graves

izombie

When Liv eats a victim’s brain on iZOMBIE we’ve see her take on one extreme personality after another. And while Major has occasionally taken on the personality traits of people whose brains he’s eaten, fans haven’t gotten a chance to experience what they’ll see tonight: Major on teenage girl brains.

Liv, Clive and Ravi investigate a fatal car accident involving a father and his angsty teenage daughter. To aid in the investigation Liv consumes the brains of the father and Major consumes the brains of the daughter. Apparently a teenage girl is the “part Robert Buckley was born to play,” Rose McIver said during our visit to the set of iZOMBIE.

“It was so much fun,” Robert Buckley said of the upcoming episode. “The only thing weird about it was how not weird it was. It was not a stretch. It started because there was a bit I do when something minor happens to me and I’m like [in a fake teenage voice], ‘My life is so hard.’ And the writers have all seen it, so when we met with writers over the summer, Diane Ruggerio-Wright, one of our showrunners, was like we have some great ideas for a brain for you. She was like, ‘It’s going to be a teenage girl. Ice skating enthusiast.’ And I was like, “‘Yeah. Done. Of course that makes sense.’ I’d love to say I had to do a lot of prep for it and put a lot of thought into it [but]…None. Just learned my lines and I let that girl out. I’ll tell you what: I came on the first day and I told Dan Etheridge our [Executive Producer], ‘I’m going to do this and you dial me back. I’ll give you more and you pull me back.’ And it was the opposite. ‘You might want to go further,[ [he said]. And I was like, ‘Really?’ It ended up being so much fun. I also haven’t had much of a shot to do much comedy in my career, so this was the first chance to play it big, play it broad, and see how it goes. I loved it. I haven’t seen a cut of it, but I had a blast doing it. It was a lot of fun.”

There have been a few other fun brains coming up in season 3 that the cast has enjoyed according to McIver: “We’ve got a dominatrix brain that’s a lot. Poor Malcolm and Rahul, Clive and Ravi, definitely sort of bear the brunt of that. And especially now that Babineaux knows about Liv’s reasons for the way she behaves, he’s having to kind of put up with things in a different way, so that’s a very funny episode I think. And yeah, I think the brains have integrated very well with the overall storylines this year in a way that is just kind of even more refined. Like the writing is so clever and each time…What’s one last one? Oh, a hot mess brain. That was probably my favorite. Very sort of Amy Schumer/Trainwreck/can’t remember where she’s left anything, hasn’t got anything together. I didn’t expect that to be as easy to play as it was.”

As for Major’s work life, we saw at the end of the season 3 premiere that he had decided to join Fillmore Graves’ mercenary team. However, this new job could cause tension between Major and the other zombies, particularly given FG’s motivations to segregate zombies: “I think what happens is as Fillmore Graves grows and as the concerns about the zombie population grows among the zombie truthers in Seattle, the role that Fillmore Graves gets to take, their take on how to handle this zombie d-day, that is something that will come to shape and challenge everyone’s relationship with Fillmore Graves and Major’s reaction to the firm itself,” Buckley said.

Meanwhile, how will Major’s work for FG be different from his work for Max Rager (besides the murdering, of course)? Well, for one thing, this could actually be good for him: “The main difference between the two is Major was blackmailed into working for Max Rager. It’s something he never wanted a part of and only did against his will. Whereas Fillmore Graves is something he voluntarily joined. His job search was pretty fruitless — he wasn’t in a great place — so his options were kind of limited. But I think what appeals to Major with Fillmore Graves is what he does actually has some value. We’ve seen him, he’s a caretaker, from when he was at Helter Shelter; he likes to look after people. He likes to do work that has importance and value. Fillmore Graves, at least initially believes in what they’re doing. A large part of him wonders about his search for meaning, especially with what happened with the counselor thing. He really hasn’t had much of a life. His love life is in shambles, he has no job, he has no real personal life outside of a couple of friends. He’s trying to find who Major is again. I think he’s hoping by doing this job that could end up being a good use of his time is part of that.”
