ARROW Preview: Slade’s Trap Is Sprung and Oliver Queen’s Family Must Pay The Ultimate Price

arrow stephen amell the promise

On the heels of last week’s shocking surprise, where Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) found Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) standing in the Queen Mansion living room, this week’s episode “The Promise” reawakens Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) memories of that fateful day after which nothing was ever the same again — the day that Slade found out about Oliver’s choice to save Sara (Caity Lotz) over Shado (Celina Jade) on the island.

So what exactly happened on Ivo’s boat? Did Oliver and Sara rescue the other prisoners? Was the mirraku serum all destroyed? How did Slade find out the truth about Shado’s death? And did they all make it off that boat? That tale is finally told and it does not go exactly as planned, as heroes and villains take on different roles when faced with greater fears and greater motivation. There is also an unexpected visit from a familiar friend that also does not go as expected.

Back at the Queen Mansion, with Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson) and possibly Thea’s (Willa Holland) lives on the line, Oliver must find a way to save them before Slade’s angry wrath is unleashed upon them all. But who can stop Slade whose mind has been warped and festering in a mirraku-infested haze for 5 years? Alone and unable to leave for one second with Slade in the house, Oliver must stand his ground to protect his family — weaponless and without the protection of his anonymous hood. It is a rare day that Oliver finds himself so defenseless and utterly naked before such a threat. Can Slade be reasoned with? Will anything less than total annihilation of the Queens satisfy his blood-lust?

Who amongst Oliver’s team will be the first to realize the danger that Oliver is trapped in? Will it be Diggle, Roy, Sarah or Felicity to the rescue, or will they be oblivious of the threat ’til the dire end? [Read more…]

BATES MOTEL Scoop: Season 2 Returns With Murder, Romance and Threats from All Sides (feat. interviews with Vera Farmiga, Max Thieriot, Michael Vartan, Nestor Carbonell and More!)

bates-motel-season-2-poster

When we last visited BATES MOTEL at the end of Season 1, it ended with the brutal murder of Ms. Watson (Keegan Connor Tracy). Season 2 picks up right afterwards as Norman (Freddie Highmore) and his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) find out about her death, and their subsequent fears about who may ultimately be responsible. Norma has that uneasy feeling that her son may somehow be involved and yet wants to believe him incapable of that kind of violence – again. It was one thing for Norman to have killed his own father in a fugue state, but what could have compelled Norman to kill one of his favorite teachers? It seems unfathomable.

Fortunately, as the mystery surrounding Ms. Watson’s death unfolds, more than one suspect emerges when it is discovered that Ms. Watson had a private life that may have exposed her to greater danger than one would think for a mere high school teacher.

Then in Dylan’s (Max Thieriot) seemingly unconnected world of the underground marijuana industry in White Pine Bay, there is a power shift afoot that makes things a lot more uncertain and risky for him as well. Two new vying power brokers make a play for control of the weed industry and Dylan seems caught-up in the crosshairs.

As if murder, rampant crime and a rising drug industry were not enough to preoccupy the entire Bates family, a few other surprises arrive on their doorstep. There are new love interests for everyone. In fact, love is in the air.

Season 2 maybe about the heightened danger swirling all around, but it also about the need for human connection and the craving to be a part of a family. While people seem to sense that something is not entirely right with Norma and Norman, they cannot help but be drawn into their world; for there is an innate seductiveness about them that draws them in. For example, Emma and Sheriff Romero know all to well that it is wiser to keep the Bates at arms’ length, but the illusion of normalcy and love that Norma and Norman exude brings them closer. Like leaning in to feel the heat of a flame – it feels warm and inviting, until you get to close and get burned. Even Dylan seems in denial about the oddity of his own family.

So caught up in the Bates’ irresistible lure for Season 2 are newcomers: Caleb Calhoun (Norma’s estranged brother, portrayed by Kenny Johnson), George Heldens (Norma’s new love interest, portrayed by Michael Vartan), Cody Brennan (Norman’s new wild-child friend, portrayed by Paloma Kwiatowski), and Jodi Wilson (a business woman with an agenda, portrayed by Kathleen Robertson).

At last week’s premiere event, the cast took a few minutes to preview what Season 2 holds for their characters: [Read more…]

BATES MOTEL Scoop: Vera Farmiga and EP Kerry Ehrin Preview The Painful Journey of Norma in Season 2

Bates-Motel-Freddie-Highmore-Vera-Farmiga1

The first season of BATES MOTEL introduced viewers to the double-layered world of Norman (Freddie Highmore) and Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga). On the surface it looked normal, but just below the surface was a layer of uncertainty and insanity. The mother-son duo, to the casual eye, were all normal and just fine. But as we got to know them better, they were not quite as normal as they appeared. Something was off. Their perspective warped by their life experiences and perhaps a few genetic proclivities as well. Fighting the non-normal impulses, Norma was the more self-aware of the two; but with each episode viewers fell under the self-delusional spell of Normal and Norman. Seeing the world through their eyes heightened the prevailing sense of fear, paranoia and irrational belief of love when perhaps none was truly there.

A spasm of reality crept in in the Season 1 finale with the murder of Ms. Watson (Keegan Connor Tracy), leaving both Norman and Norma to wonder if Norman was capable of killing again, albeit in a fugue state so that he could not remember it.

In a recent press conference call, star Vera Farmiga and executive producer Kerry Ehrin talked about Norma’s painful journey of self-discovery and self-realization in Season 2 of BATES MOTEL: [Read more…]

REVOLUTION Scoop: Bringing the Sci-Fi Back Into The Apocalyptic AfterMath (feat. video interviews with David Lyons, Billy Burke, Elizabeth Mitchell, JD Pardo, Tracy Spiridakos)

IMG_2988.JPG

When NBC’s REVOLUTION first debuted, it was premised on the idea of turning the power back on. It had been 15 years since the power went out one day without explanation; and by the end of Season 1, they did turn the power back on — just long enough for the world to try to destroy itself and launched every nuclear weapon at its disposal. Unfortunately, turning the power back on was not the wisest thing to have done when nearly two decades of warmongering and warlord tyranny had become the norm. With the push of a button, Randall Flynn (Colm Feore) nearly annihilated the entire East Coast of the United States. So Season 2 of REVOLUTION took us back to the dark ages, or the norm in the world they had grown used to living in without power and electricity. Everything looked bleak since now they had vast geographical areas obliterated by nuclear bombs and an even larger number of their dwindling population eradicated in seconds. [Read more…]

dallas cast

All the things fans love are coming back with a vengeance in Season 3 of DALLAS. Those wily Ewings and their many nemeses are back with blood feuds, scandalous sex, and big money deals. The world of DALLAS has never shied away from going big. It’s go big or go home. That’s their style and they feel perfectly at home amongst the vast prairies and oil fields of Texas, as well as the high-powered boardrooms and lascivious bedrooms.

The Season 2 heart-break of losing J.R. Ewing (R.I.P. Larry Hagman) is a shadow hard to overcome, but DALLAS remembers its roots and allows John Ross (Josh Henderson), the son of J.R. to take the spotlight as the show’s slippery hero with a devastating smile. It also showcases the other Ewings and their Barnes and Ryland counterparts with equal measure and allows each to carry a storylines deeply intertwined in each other’s lives. [Read more…]
