Arrow Season 6 Episode 1 Recap: Who Died on Lian Yu?

Arrow finally returned last night, and we finally found out who died after the crazy explosion on Lian Yu at the conclusion of Arrow Season 5

When Arrow Season 6 Episode 1 got underway, it was five months later, and we got the reveal that Oliver, Diggle, Curtis, and Rene had survived the blast. 

If you watch Arrow online, you will already know that Malcolm Merlyn blew himself up to save Thea right before the island exploded, but was it all for nothing?

As the episode progressed, we got flashbacks to find out what happened, and it did not look good for Thea.

Slade found her lifeless body and led Oliver to say goodbye to his sister. 

Because Willa Holland has been less prominent on the hit CW series of late, she seemed poised to exit, but everything was not as it appeared. 

Thea was revealed to be in a coma, so that was not quite as bad as an off-screen death.

It remains to be seen whether Holland is sticking around with the show, but if the actress does not return, we guess she could be killed off-screen. 

The other person who did not make it out of the blast alive was Samantha, who was adamant that Oliver takes on their son full-time in the aftermath. 

However, William felt like Oliver was the person who caused the blast because of what Adrian said and the kid favored Reza over Oliver. 

After much back and forth, Oliver managed to get William on his side after revealing that he did everything he could to save his mother and that he would never do anything to hurt him. 

The other person presumed dead on the island was Black Siren. She attacked Lance and Dinah, forcing Lance to shoot her. 

They left her on the island for dead, but someone appeared to bring her back into the land of the living, and she went to war with the residents of Star City. 

She blew up the SCPD offices and killed nine officers.

Thankfully, Rene had just graduated to become an officer, so at least the city knew it was going to need some new officers. 

When the graduation ceremony for the SCPD officers came, everyone expected there to be a terrorist attack, but for some reason, nothing happened. 

The Arrow lair was then intercepted by Black Siren and her goons, and Diggle was forced to fight for his life.

The team showed up in time, but they realized that Siren had stolen one of the devices Curtis used earlier to detonate a missile headed for Star City. 

With that, it left the team questioning the villain’s next move, but things took a crazy turn when a picture of Oliver as Green Arrow was leaked to the media. 

How will the Mayor be able to spin this one? We’ll need to wait another week to find out!

Arrow continues next Thursday on The CW!

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 1 Recap: Who Died?

Fred Andrews survived, but who did the Angel of Death take in his place?

When Riverdale Season 2 Episode 1 got underway, Archie found himself trying to get his father to the hospital before it was too late. He drove across town and with blood seeping from his father’s wound. 

The hospital looked like something out of a horror film. It was empty, but at least people appeared to help when it was really needed. Everyone gathered at the hospital to find out what happened. 

What surprised me the most was that Sheriff Keller threw out the whole premeditated schtick without knowing all of the details. Why would someone seriously say that to a kid?

Veronica and Archie made their way to the house to take Vegas for a walk and get some fresh clothing for Fred, but somewhere along the way, they indulged in a steamy hookup. 

Archie then went ham on Veronica for going through his father’s things. She was only trying to help, and I loved that she stood her ground when he told her to leave. 

Deep down, she knew Archie was hurting, and that’s why she let his crazy outburst slide. All she wanted to do was be there for her man, and that’s why she is such a great person. 

Fred was having a tough time of it in his mind. He kept thinking about critical moments in Archie’s life, but they all ended in someone being shot. Fred woke up straight after Cheryl kissed him, and Archie realized he would need to keep his father safe. 

Archie was upset with himself for freezing on the spot when the shootout kicked off. It was a perfectly natural thing to happen, but it did not stop Arch from hurting for not doing more. 

Archie went to extreme measures and realized he would need to guard the house when Fred returned home because the register at Pop’s was untouched, further proving this was not a random shooting. 

In a surprising scene, we picked up with Miss Grundy in another city and romancing another high school student. When the kid left, the disgraced teacher was murdered by the same man who shot Fred. What the hell is going on?!

In other events, Veronica sparred with her mother, and not even her scary father, Hiram, could make Veronica listen to orders. Yes, her dad was back in the mix, and Veronica took great pleasure in letting her parents know Fred survived. 

Would it be that out of the ordinary to have Hiram and Hermione involved in the shooting? They are a wicked duo and are going to ruffle a lot of feathers this season. 

Then there was Jughead, who decided to use the Serpents to garner some insight into what happened to Fred. Unfortunately, it only proved he was a Serpent and that there was no way he was getting out of it.

Khloe Kardashian Relives the Moment She Heard that Lamar Odom Had DIED!

Kylie Jenner might be pregnant, which is interesting news but also the best imaginable press for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians 10th Anniversary Special that airs on Sunday.

They have an entire decade of their family's dramatic ups and downs to cover, but obviously there are some highlights that they couldn't gloss over. One of them being Lamar Odom's overdose.

In the sneak peek below, Khloe talks about when she first received the news — which she later learned was false — informing her that Lamar Odom had died.

Lamar with khloe

It might not seem like that long ago, but it was nearly two years ago when Lamar Odom had a very serious "medical event" while in a Las Vegas brothel.

At the time, it was really unclear if he was going to survive.

The Kardashians got blasted for filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians at the hospital.

(You know, the usual — people accused them of being vultures, of using Lamar's near-death experience for publicity and drama, etc)

But this was a genuintely upsetting thing for them. Lamar was family, and not just to Khloe.

In fact, that's how the topic came up at the reunion special, as you can see in the sneak peek below.

This anecdote, in which the Kardashians relive this dramatic and traumatic moment when they first got the news about Lamar, starts with Kendall.

Kendall Jenner was asked about what was, in all of her years of filming the show, the hardest scene or moment to film.

Kendall sort of … pivots.

She instead describes the day that was the hardest, for her, to do any sort of work.

This was, of course, when she heard the news of Lamar Odom's overdose.

"I landed in London and the first text that popped into my phone, it was from Kim and it had said, 'Lamar passed away.'"

Now, that was not true. Bear with her, for a moment.

"I, like, immediately started sobbing on the plane. Then I got — the next text came through saying, 'OK, actually he's OK, he's alive, but he's not doing well.'"

Again, Lamar was family. That's not easy for anyone to deal with.

Left all alone

Khloe, who was of course closer to Lamar and this story than any of her siblings, talks about what that moment was like for her.

"On the plane, they said he died. Someone faked it."

Kim explains what happened.

"Someone made a fake account. And emailed me with the wrong information."

That's a nasty, inexcusable thing to do to someone.

To anyone — not just to a celebrity.

Khloe's personal emotional reaction was … not subtle. She was inconsolable.

"I was screaming."

Lamar Odom has insisted that he wasn't on drugs, or even drunk, that night at the brothel.

Obviously, there's nothing wrong with visiting a brothel of voluntary sex workers, just as there's nothing wrong with sex work itself.

Many were scandalized by his circumstances at the time, but it's important to note that he wasn't cheating on Khloe.

Lamar and Khloe were, at the time, still legally bound but they were definitely exes.

Thankfully, Lamar has since recovered.

Beloved Washington NBC News Anchor Jim Vance Has Died

Jim Vance, a veteran news anchor for Washington, D.C. NBC affiliate WRC-TV, has died. Vance was one the first leading Black news reporters on television and was part of one of the first all-Black news anchor teams in the nation.

James Howard Vance III was born January 10, 1942, in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, just west of Philadelphia. Vance attended and graduated from Cheyney University, teaching for a few years before moving to television. He took his first television job with a now-defunct independent station that served the Philadelphia market before joining WRC-TV.

Vance worked 45 years for the outlet and was well-known for his unwavering cool, smooth goatee, and earrings while delivering the news.

From NBC4:

From Jackie Bradford, president and general manager of NBC4:

“We are heartbroken to announce that Jim Vance died this morning.

“For more than 45 years, Jim Vance was not only the soul of NBC4 but of the entire Washington area. His smooth voice, brilliant mind and unforgettable laugh leaves each of us with a tremendous void.

“Vance always celebrated the good and acknowledged the parts of life that didn’t go so well. That made him a great man.

Vance and late WRC-TV sports news reporter George Michael landed back in the national limelight due to a now-viral clip of a broadcast where the close friends launched into a fit of hysterics at a model fumbling during a catwalk performance.

Back in May, Vance announced that he was battling cancer but continued working when he could.

Jim Vance was 75.
