Arrow Season 6 Episode 6 Recap: Promises Kept

A new villain emerged on Arrow Season 6 Episode 6 and made it clear he was intent on making some changes to the criminal underworld of Star City. 

The new addition was Kirk Acevedo who was playing DC comics villain Richard Dragon. On the CW hit, his character goes by the name of Ricardo Diaz. 

The new character had an ominous link to Diggle who was still keeping up the charade as the latest iteration of the Green Arrow. Diggle was still struggling with drugs, and it turned out his drug supplier was Ricardo. 

Diggle realized that Ricardo posed a threat to team Arrow, so he turned to his wife Lyla and told her all the details about his drug taking. 

Diggle supplied the team with Ricardo’s whereabouts and was forced to watch the drugs go up in flames. Diggle later confessed all to his team and apologized for keeping them in the dark. 

Meanwhile, Slade continued to reconnect with his son after being reunited with each other. Slade decided to join his son on a risky mission, one that Oliver opposed to. 

Slade’s son then wanted his father to attack Oliver and finally take him out of the equation, but then Slade turned the tables and sided with his former enemy. 

The newly formed duo went after Kane before he and his band of misfits could attack the water supply. Slade and Kane had to head-to-head in an emotional battle. 

Slade tried to tell his son that he was only killing because he was high on mirakuru, but the kid revealed that he witnessed Slade kill during a camping trip. 

Slade said goodbye to Oliver once again as he noted it was time for him to get some results with his children. He wanted to be a good father for once in his life. 

We also got to see some flashbacks of Slade being picked up from Lian Yu seven years before the current events. 

Slade trained with ASIS but struggled to move on from what happened to Shado. Slade then murdered the whole ASIS crew after the ghost of Shado told him to avenge her death. 

Something tells us Slade is going to find himself in some more trouble with the principal characters before long. His sons are wild.

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 6 Recap: The Black Hood Claims Another Victim

The residents of Riverdale should probably think about the past and reflect on whether they have done anything that could put them on the outs with the Black Hood. 

Betty continued to work with the villain on Riverdale Season 2 Episode 6, and it became apparent that the killing is far from over. 

When the episode got underway, Betty rushed to Nick’s hotel room and expected to find a grisly sight. Instead, she found him being arrested by Sheriff Keller for alleged assault. 

The killer informed Betty that Nick was not on his hit-list because his sins were nothing compared to the crimes of people in the town.

The killer told Betty it was time to take down the dealer of jingle-jangle, the drug that every teen in the town seemed to be hooked on. 

While most had heard tales of the Sugarman, the person who apparently crafted the drug and released it to the masses, she did not know where to look. 

She turned to Cheryl because her father had a huge association with the drug dealers of the town before his death. When Cheryl tried to find out the truth from her mother, she was stopped in her tracks. 

Cheryl recalled an old story that her mother used to tell her to scare her when Clifford was meeting with the elusive drug dealer, but Penelope shut her daughter down, saying that she was a liar. 

Then, Penelope met up with the Lodges and learned that Cheryl was almost assaulted by Nick. Penelope claimed she wanted it to be kept quiet, and on a more sickening note, said that nothing really happened to her daughter. 

Is this mother the worst one on all of TV? It sure seems that way. Cheryl then bumped into the man who tried to rape her, and he said that her mother accepted hush money in exchange for Cheryl keeping quiet. 

This sent Cheryl on the warpath as she returned home and took the check her mother had from the St. Clair family until her mother opened up about who the elusive drug dealer was. 

Veronica decided she did not want Nick to do anything to anyone else, so she confided in her father and mother that he tried to attack her. This was met with words of wisdom from her parents, who said that they would not accept a dime from the family. 

Later, it was revealed that the family was run off the road and that Nick will be in the hospital for several months. Yes, the Lodges definitely orchestrated the whole thing, and it was well deserved.

Meanwhile, Archie told Jughead the Southside High was going to be raided by Mayor McCoy, and they each agreed to get rid of the Ghoulies to restore normalcy around the town. 

Jug and Archie got into a car race with the Ghoulies, but Archie set the Ghoulies up, and they were arrested. This meant that they were going to jail, but Jug was not impressed because it was a short-term solution. 

The big twist at the close of the hour was that the seemingly nice teacher from Southside High was the drug maker and he was murdered in prison by the Black Hood. 

Oh, and we can’t forget Betty realizing that she’s in control of the whole situation after telling her friends about what happened. 

Will she live to tell the tale again?

We have no idea.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 6 Recap: Growing Up Jersey

Bravo’s successful Real Housewives franchise has always aimed to bring high drama to viewers, but the drama is all based on whether the cast members want to bring it. 

Unfortunately, the current housewives on The Real Housewives of New Jersey are not working. On The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 6, Teresa thought she was getting a break from the drama. 

However, her vacation was ruined by her daughters continuing to whine at her every single time she spoke to them.

It was painful to watch, but it certainly made me think those kids are sick of having cameras around them. They have been on the show for the entire series, and the recent bad press about their parents has to have had some sort of effect on them. 

The producers are trying to implement this whole storyline about Teresa letting the children get away with everything, but it seems more like that’s just been thrown in to explain their very blatant hatred of the cameras. 

It must be difficult for Teresa because she was gone from their lives for a considerable amount of time, but the kids either need to be left out of the show or be told they need to participate if they are in front of the camera. 

Teresa’s storyline this week consisted of her trying to get through to her children while trying to have a little fun herself and you could tell she was miserable. 

What didn’t help was everyone at the resort in Puerto Rico staring into the camera. Maybe Teresa’s storyline has just run its course, and it’s time to follow some new people. 

Back in New Jersey, Siggy went to get pellets to get her hormone levels back on track because she admitted she had something wrong with her. 

Hey, it’s the first step to recovery, so everyone should be giving her the thumbs up. Her mood has been all over the place, and it’s a little bit unethical to have her in front of the reality tv cameras in that manner. 

Margaret decided it was time to nip all the feuding in the bud and called Dolores to meet her for lunch. It started off very awkward, and it was clear Dolores wanted to stick up for Siggy. 

That’s what friends do, and Dolores is coming across as the most loyal woman on this show nowadays. Margaret is a real hoot. She has eyelashes on her mini cooper, so she must be a great person. 

For some reason, Margaret opened up about raising her ex-husband’s children for several years before they fell out with her for leaving their father. 

It seemed forced, but Dolores reacted to the waterworks. The two women found some common ground, and it helped Dolores understand what Margaret was about. 

Dolores took the news to Siggy during a double date with Frank and Michael. Initially, Siggy was against being friends with Margaret, but Dolores continued to push the fact that she thought the woman was misunderstood. 

Siggy finally decided to give Margaret another chance, but it’s difficult to expect the two women to do anything other than fight until the bitter end. 

This was hands down the worst episode of the series. There were no big talking points. It was all filler to show off Teresa on her all expenses paid family vacation to Puerto Rico. 

Danielle was not even part of the episode. Her voice was in it thanks to a phone call with Teresa, but isn’t this woman supposed to be, like, causing all the drama to keep us tuning in?

Sigh.

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 5 Recap: When a Stranger Calls

Betty found herself in quite the pickle on Riverdale Season 2 Episode 5, and that was all thanks to the killer taking her under his wing. 

Who would have thought that Betty Cooper would be front and center in this captivating thriller? The killer previously announced his intention to rid the town of the criminals. 

When the episode got underway, the killer told Betty to publish an article about her mother if she wanted to keep Polly safe. The article was all about Alice getting arrested back in the day for hanging around with the serpents. 

Betty was initially hesitant but published the article after it emerged that her mother thought she and Jughead were making everything up. 

The town learned that Alice was not the first-class citizen she was trying to make herself out to be, and she was not impressed. Betty played it cool, and her mother believed it was a revenge plan. 

Dark Betty continued to come out when the killer told her to cut Veronica out of her life, or he would be killing her. 

Betty did so and epically. Veronica’s ex-boyfriend, Nick St. Claire was in town too with his parents to help a deal between the Lodges and his family go through. 

Betty called Veronica trash and said that she was no longer a friend because she was taking drugs with Nick and it was proving who she really was. 

A heartbroken Betty left the party, and Nick tried to have sex with Veronica, but she shut him down with a slap. 

Betty’s final thing on her list was to call things off with Jughead. That was actually pretty easy when it emerged that Jughead was going full Serpent and pressing on with his initiation. 

This all came after the Serpents decided to send a bomb to the Cooper family newspaper. Archie took great pride in telling Jughead Betty was done with him because he was hanging around with the Serpents. 

The only thing this did was send Jug straight into Toni’s arms, and the pair seemingly had sex. Is this the end of Bughead?!

Betty found herself in a house on the edge of town with the killer telling her she was also the black hood killer. 

Betty made a swift getaway and returned to help Cheryl when it emerged that Nick drugged her and attempted to rape her. Veronica and the Pussycats saved her and beat the crap out of Nick. 

Betty said that there was no point in getting revenge because it was all done with. Then, the killer called her and said he knew she told Archie the truth. 

The killer made the sobbing teen pick the next person to die, or her sister and mother were next to be killed. She picked…

Nick St. Claire!

American Horror Story Season 7 Episode 10 Recap: Another One Bites the Dust

It was back to the 2016 Presidential Election on American Horror Story Season 7 Episode 10

When the episode got underway, we picked up with a flashback that took us to the final debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. 

That was the night Kai realized he wanted world domination and he was going to find a way to make it happen … even if it meant killing multiple people to get there. 

Kai went at it with one of Winter’s friends because of their differing views about Americans. He smacked the chick in the face, and that’s how he found himself in anger management.

This meeting helped connect the dots somewhat when it emerged that the coach was Bebe Babbitt. She was the woman who tried to reel the women in a few weeks back, but it was revealed she was working with Kai. 

She seemed to think that Kai needed to know his true purpose in the world was to give up his own life to help all American women have their way. 

“The women of the world are waiting for you, legs spread, on their backs,” she told him. “Impregnate them! Help them give birth to their rage!”

Back in the present, a protestor hit Kai in the face at one of his political rallies, so it was up there with the other crazy ones that have occurred this season. 

Kai then told his cult about Charles Manson, and noted that he “wasn’t thinking big enough.” Kai then took his latest propaganda to Planned Parenthood, and everyone stabbed the man working there. 

As if that was not bad enough, they wrote: “Stop the Slaughter” on the door. From then on, it became apparent to Kai that someone from the cult was about to try and take him down. 

Bebe visited him to find out what he was going to do now that he’s gone off course. 

“You really thought I was going to drown myself in female rage?” he asked.

“You thought I’d die for some dead bitch’s cause? … Women can’t run things. They’re too emotional, too irrational. … Women need to be grabbed by their p–s and led, preferably into the kitchen to make me a sandwich.”

Ally appeared with a gun and took Bebe right out of the equation. Yes, we’re still surprised at how crazy Ally has become. For Ally, her revenge plan was not over. 

She made it look like Winter was recording conversations with Kai and that meant Kai thought his sister could be the one ready to jump ship. 

Kai murdered Winter, and it solidified the fact that Kai and Ally are a match made in heaven. What will they do next?!

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 4 Recap: The Town That Dreaded Sundown

Riverdale is getting darker every single week. 

On Riverdale Season 2 Episode 4, the town continued to fear the Black Hood, who was still haunting the residents of the town. 

The killer sent a letter to Betty Cooper saying that her speech at the school was the thing that made him begin to purify the town of some of its biggest offenders. 

Along with the letter, he left a coded note that he said only she could decipher. She confided in her mother but kept the part about the letter out of the conversation. 

Betty, Kevin, Jughead, and Toni then joined forces to figure out what the letter meant. Somewhere along the way, Betty essentially said the Serpents were to blame for everything. 

Toni then countered that Jughead was hanging around with them in school and that she should probably consider that before throwing accusations around. 

Toni and Kevin left, and Betty woke up the next morning to countless calls from her mother for not letting her know where she was staying. Alice had previously said that she was worried sick every time Betty did not answer the phone to her. 

While all of this was going down, Archie was feeling the wrath of just about everyone for the Red Circle video. The football team had been disbanded until the red-head decided it was time to pull the plug on the group. 

After telling Veronica her father was the one who pushed him to take action, Veronica got on board with the cause. Archie went out at night and started painting red circles around town. 

He found himself in a scary situation when a Serpent pulled a knife out on him, but Archie started waving the gun around, and the boys disappeared. 

Archie was shocked in school when Keller showed up and said a shopkeeper had called the cops on him. His locker was checked, but the gun was nowhere in sight. 

Archie was suspended from school and asked Veronica to retrieve the gun for him. She said she threw it away, and that he was to calm down with all of the crazy drama. 

Reggie and the rest of the football team showed up, but things got scary when a group of serpents appeared and said that there would be a fight. Veronica told them not to use weapons, or she would call Keller in. 

At the fight, one of the serpents stabbed Dilton in the leg, and Veronica shot the gun to break up the fight. She and Archie then threw the gun into the river. 

Mayor McCoy called a town meeting and imposed a curfew on the town, but Betty and Jughead showed up to say the killer was going to strike. The killer somehow knew she was a fan of Nancy Drew and the book helped her decode the message. 

Betty got everyone out of the hall by setting off the fire alarm, thus, ruining the killer’s plan. The episode concluded with the killer calling her. Who the heck is it?!

Arrow Season 6 Episode 3 Recap: Did Olicity Reunite?

Diggle continued his new role as the vigilante of Star City on Arrow Season 6 Episode 3, and not everyone was glad about the shifting dynamics of the team. 

When the episode got underway, Diggle adapted to his new role with ease, but FBI Agent Watson noticed that the Green Arrow was no longer shooting arrows. 

On top of that, Diggle made a crucial mistake during a mission, and it resulted in several civilians being put in danger, and they all needed medical attention. 

Dinah wanted her friend to thrive in his new role, so she pushed the team to move past it because it was always going to be a learning process for him. 

But, she waited until she and Diggle were in private and grilled him about whether his health could be the issue. He vehemently denied it and claimed the issue was dealt with. 

During the next big bust-up with Onyx, Diggle managed to get the team to capture the elusive villain to give the team a major win. We then found out that Diggle was using a drug to fix his issue. 

This is not going to end well. 

Curtis and Felicity reveal their high-tech crossbow that shot arrows without having to use it manually, so it was an excellent way to shut the media up about what was going on. 

With Oliver relieved of his duties as Green Arrow, he focused on raising William. Felicity stepped in to let him know that it was best to work through his issues with his son. 

She opined that putting everything aside would come back to haunt them down the line. Oliver then asked Felicity to tutor William because he was worried about a math test. 

Oliver later gave Felicity a key to his apartment, and Oliver said that everyone feels better with Felicity around. That paved the way for their first big kiss in a long time. 

The city council passed a new anti-vigilante bill that caused a headache for Oliver. He managed to find a way to bring it to a halt, but it means there will be a referendum to see who wants the bill to come into effect. 

What will everyone decide? Will they keep the Green Arrow around or will he have to change things up?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 4 Recap: The Public Shaming of Melissa

Danielle Staub is back, but is she the root of all the drama?

That became the biggest storyline on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 4 when she revealed some shocking details to Teresa about Dolores. 

Dolores allegedly said that all Teresa cares about is money and that Danielle would be wise to steer clear of her. Danielle thrives on some drama, so she dished the goodies to Teresa. 

Teresa was mad, and she thought it made sense because of the way Dolores has kept her distance from her over the last few weeks.

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you will know that Dolores has been too busy following Siggy around to bother with the other women on the show. 

Teresa wasted no time in dragging Dolores for her alleged comments, and Dolores went straight for the jugular with Danielle. 

“Welcome back, Scumbag!” she barked at her new enemy as she tried to clear her name. Teresa did not know who to believe, but a part of her was saying that Danielle was telling the truth. 

Dolores called Danielle a liar, a “crazy person,” and a“starving, hungry bitch.” She then tried to diagnose Danielle’s multitude of problems and said that it was no coincidence that Danielle returned and things got bad between the women. 

Danielle started bawling like a baby and made a swift exit with Teresa and Melissa. If Danielle is here to cause the drama, she can stay. This episode was crazy!

Then there was Siggy who thought inviting all the women to her cocktail party would continue to repair their fractured friendships. However, things took a crazy turn when Siggy ambushed Melissa about throwing the cake. 

“In a million years I wouldn’t take a beautiful cake like that and throw it across the floor,” Siggy yelled. Melissa was shocked but asked to buy her another cake to shut her up. 

Siggy then asked every single person whether Melissa acted wrongly and they all sided with Siggy. This was yet another moment that proved these women are going to be fighting until the bitter end. 

Elsewhere, Teresa and Melissa are starting to fight again, and part of the reason is that Joe bought the restaurant without consulting Melissa about it. Melissa learned that she was the last person to know and that did not go down well with her. 

The ladies bickered when they met with Joe to speak about running the restaurant. Melissa claimed she would not be doing anything that would involve getting her hands dirty. 

So, it looks like Melissa and Teresa are going to be feuding once again. Would we have it any other way?
