Hey TV addicts,

The Holidays are almost here and some TV shows have already wrapped up for the year. With this sudden change of schedule, I’ll be concentrating on the TV shows whose winter finales have affected us the most as audiences, whether positive or negative. Let us begin.

SPOILER ALERT: Click HERE for the list of shows I watch before you spoil your TV appetite.


Scandal’s Baby It’s Cold Outside

Shonda never let a good controversy pass her by. For the past few months, the Planned Parenthood battle between women/their God-given uteri and male politicians has escalated to the point where abortion has become more of a stigma than ever. Shonda and her team showed which side they were on when Olivia Pope herself not only supported Mellie on the Planned Parenthood issue but also underwent her own abortion.

It was a shocking scene. Let me clarify: it was only shocking that we had NO idea she was even pregnant, let alone determined to make this decision. But that’s as far as the shock goes. As the winter finale showed, no matter what your stance on Planned Parenthood and abortion, no one should bar a woman from making decisions for her body.

From that revelation, it wasn’t hard to predict the state of Olivia and Fitz. Are they really over, though? I’d have to let a good year pass before I start to accept that. Don’t get me wrong: Good move, Liv. But, love is love. It’s an unpredictable stain on our emotions.

Meanwhile, Huck stayed sane for longer than a minute and Papa Pope and Jake have reunited because of the ‘Paris is Burning’ upheaval. Again, will this last? In Shondaland, who the hell knows?

How to Get Away With Murder’s What Did We Do?

The episode’s name was as true as heaven. What in the hell is wrong with these law students and their lecturer? I’m not new to well-meaning characters killing people but my gosh, even I had to pause to wonder why I was watching this sickness.

First off, let’s welcome Asher to the murder madness.As a law-abiding citizen, I should feel repugnant of ADA Sinclair’s murder. But I’m also an honest citizen and so I will honestly say, the b*tch had it coming. Her annoyance was on level 100 and kept going up by each episode. Like, woman, let shit go! You poke a bear, it will bite you. So my sympathy ran dry for her.

Next, Bonnie is really living to her namesake. After her little melodrama with Annalise, I never expected her to bounce back and take care of Asher’s dead body problems. But she came through for her boy toy.

But what really took the cake? Annalise urging the law students to kill her to really throw Catherine to the dogs and save Nate. I mean, love is a wonderful thing but it can make psychos of the best of us. Was she actually taking a bullet for this man?

....still no (via tumblr)

And who should do it but her very own (possibly) son?! From the start of the season, I missed my little deadly duo act of Wes and Annalise. But I couldn’t understand why Wes was so special to her. His little teddy bear/Gryffindor act was cute but all the law students worked hard. Now, we’re hearing that his real name is Christoff and he’s her son and I can’t believe her own son just killed her because she lied to him about Rebecca and ugh!

Poor Wes didn’t know. Despite all that, it is still so messed up.

Sleepy Hollow’s Novus Ordo Seclorum

Sleepy Hollow has been, at best, charming. The show especially reached an all-time high with me when they crossed over Bones. I’m still wondering how that became a success. Bones is the epitome of skeptical. How Ichabod and Abby managed to explain certain things to her tells you how far they’ve come in concealing their game.

But anyway, now Sleepy Hollow fans are wondering where Abby may have gone to. She saved her sister, with a few cave-ins or two but it seems as if she couldn’t save herself.

Ichabod won’t give up on her though. Cue Ichabod’s doggedness pursuit for answers come next year.

Castle’s Mr. and Mrs. Castle

I must admit, I am disappointed with Castle. I expected season 8 to give us talk (and attempts) at little Caskett babies. But the new show runners want to take ten steps back with Kate and Castle’s marriage, if only for Castle’s safety. In the interim, they give us an eye-rolling amount of awkward Kate/Castle scenes where Castle is unnecessarily desperate to win Kate back.

Although this was adorable. (via tumblr)

Then, when Castle confront Kate on her real motives, she realizes that she and Castle work better together. Like clearly that was happening for damn near seven years.

Season 7 would have been the last season if we’d known newbies would have changed stuff up.

As a loyal fan of seven years, I demand and deserve my Caskett babies!

Gotham’s Worse Than a Crime

After Castle’s disappointment, I had to end part one on a high note. Enter wonderful, captivating, forever-bae Gotham sailing on through with a fantastic as well as chilling conclusion to this season’s Order of St. Dumas story arc. So chilling, I almost missed it because of shock. Really, Jim? Did you really shoot him? It’s ’cause you had Barbara on the brain. Man, when a crazy chick gets under your skin….

She really gets under there (via tumblr)

I had half-hoped Penguin would have finished him. Anyway, doesn’t matter. Theo Galavan lost his appeal long before they had Bruce Wayne strung up on a sacrificial pyre.

Bye, bye, Galavan (via tumblr)

How? Well, it’s all about fear. When your captive evokes a strong amount of fear of dying by your own hands, I respect you. But when boy Bruce feels more excited to see his parents than the cause of his death, I respect the future Batman ten times more than your sorry ass. The boy knew he was leaving this earth but he wouldn’t give them the satisfaction of hysterics.

And he still won't give you the love, Silver! (via tumblr)

Boy Bruce decided that if he was going to see his parents, he’d see them with courage. He has been pulling this respect game since day one of this season. I’m just in love with the development!

Aside from that, Galavan was abandoned by his sister and niece just moments before capture. Nothing says weakness like abandonment.

One more thing. Is Leslie really pregnant? We women have to stick together, but I’m kind of side eye-ing the convenience. It almost stopped Penguin’s little playtime with Jim.

And we know how much he wanted that! (via tumblr)

And is that Mr. Freeze?!
