The Walking Dead S06E02 Recap: JSS


Enid The Walking Dead JSSWith “JSS,” The Walking Dead moved Season 6 into high gear with a shocking, action-packed episode. “JSS” was directed by Jennifer Lynch and written by Seth Hoffman. The narrative of the episode held strong throughout all of the action, conveying a lot of information about quite a few characters while also keeping us on the edge of our seats. “JSS” exemplified the “show, don’t tell” approach that is the strength of The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead returns for its 6th season with premiere episode “First Time Again.” The episode starts off showing Rick Grimes and his crew leading a mission to deal with a massive herd of walkers. It flashes between their current predicament and various scenes that have taken place since the Season 5 finale, “Conquer.”  Thus The Walking Dead gives us a sense of the aftermath of Rick killing Pete and of Morgan’s arrival in Alexandria. Those days or weeks leading to this attempt to shepherd hundreds of walkers out past Alexandria haven’t been easy. “First Time Again” gives us a chance to see where The Walking Dead characters we know have landed and to meet some other Alexandria residents.

The Vodyanoi (водяно́й in Russian) is a water-dwelling demonic creature of Eastern Europe.

He is a curmudgeonly old spirit whose time outside of his lavish underwater home is often divided between murder and mayhem. Continue reading

Supernatural S11E02 Recap: Form and Void


Sam gun Supernatural Out of the Darkness Into the Fire“Form and Void” continues the story of Supernatural’s Season 11 premiere, “Out of the Darkness, Into the Fire.” Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) has delivered Deputy Jenna Nickerson (Laci J Mailey) and baby Amara to Jenna’s grandmother (Christine Willes), while Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) searches for a cure for the deadly supernatural infection affecting him and others around Superior, Nebraska. Castiel (Misha Collins) is still cursed by Rowena’s attack dog spell, and the angel assistance he’s received isn’t exactly a rescue. Crowley (Mark Sheppard) has learned the Darkness has been unleashed and can’t help but wonder, what’s in it for him? Weaving the initial story, which centered on the mysterious infection, into two episodes helps to provide the space needed for our characters to settle into the new reality. “Form and Void” was written by Andrew Dabb and directed by Phillip Sgriccia.
