During most of Season 6 The Walking Dead has been showing us the events over a couple days, and episode 6, “Always Accountable,” continues that pattern. Except for the Morgan-centric episode “Here’s Not Here,” the present timeline started with the practice run at the quarry and has ended with Alexandria surrounded by walkers. The biggest question on everyone’s mind is—was that Glenn calling for help on the radio?
“The Zygon Inversion” was full of suspense and moral reflection, the things we love about Doctor Who. In “The Zygon Invasion,” the presidential plane had been shot down, leaving us to wonder how the Doctor and Osgood would survive. Though we know the Doctor must survive, it was still shocking to see the visage of Clara firing a bazooka towards the plane. “The Zygon Inversion” picks up here, showing us not only these events on the ground, but how the real Clara, trapped in the Zygon pod, comes to understand what’s going on through the mental link she has with the Zygon Bonnie who has taken on her form.
In “Our Little World” the boys get one step closer to learning more about Supernatural’s greatest mystery—the Darkness. Castiel (Misha Collins) finally tracks down Metatron (Curtis Armstrong), but the fomer scribe of God is pretty settled in his new life. The teenage version of the Darkness, Amara (Samantha Isler), on the other hand, is much less satisfied by the life Crowley (Mark Sheppard) is offering her. “Our Little World” was written by Robert Berens and directed by John Showalter, both experienced members of the Supernatural family.
“Now” shows us the aftermath following the chaos of the first three episodes of Season 6 of The Walking Dead. We had a break in the non-stop action with last week’s Morgan-focused episode, “Here’s Not Here.” In “Now,” everyone is taking a moment to adjust to what’s happened and where they are now. In this world death is always imminent, and you have to go on even when those you love have died or disappeared. “Now” was directed by Avi Youabian and written by Corey Reed, both whom have a lot of experience with The Walking Dead franchise.

Once upon a time there was an upstart television network called The CW. Its beginnings were complicated and its name was kinda lame, but The CW network came to capture our hearts, and even our souls. Some critics like to dismiss The CW, saying that it targets younger viewers, all the stars are good looking, and that the seasons pack in a lot of episodes. We say, uh, how are those things a problem? The truth is that The CW has some of the most interesting and innovative shows on TV. The CW is a small but plucky television network. Did we say plucky? We meant awesome. There’s lots to love about The CW—it’s supernatural mythology, comic culture, and dramatic flair.
“Thin Lizzie” gives viewers a Supernatural Monster of the Week episode with an unexpected twist, reminding us that “The Darkness is coming for us all.” It might even be standing in the bushes spying on you. With his fascination for serial killers, Sam (Jared Padalecki) can’t resist investigating a couple axed to death while staying at the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast Museum. Dean (Jensen Ackles), on the other hand, isn’t thrilled to stay in a flowery room that smells like lavender toilet water. It turns out that Sam isn’t the only one with a “freaky fetish” for Lizzie Borden, because Amara also can’t resist visiting the home of this famous axe murderer. Who knew Sam and Amara had so much in common.
