The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 12: ‘Say Yes’ Review

This post contains SPOILERS.

This weeks episode focuses primarily on Rick and Michonne and it is a glorious one. Back in episode 10 we met the Scavengers. Episode 12 explores Rick and Michonne searching for guns to give to the Scavengers as part of their deal, and who would have thought the process of doing such would be so interesting.

It was nice to see Rick and Michonne going place to place with no real indication of what they were looking for. It seemed to be purely about finding things for Negan, but as we get to the fairground it slowly clicks that it’s about more than that.

We’ve seen for a long time how well Rick and Michonne work together, and this whole episode just proved it. The way they worked together to take down Walkers, and even make jokes about it, was great. The whole fairground portion was so much fun from when they fell through the roof of that building to when we all thought Rick had been killed.

Bones Season 12 Episode 7: ‘The Scare in the Score’ Review

THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS.

This week’s episode went from funny to sad in no time at all, although it did feel like a gradual (and natural) progression. We had the hilarious opening in which a woman is running away, and at first you think it’s another person, but it turns out it’s just a raccoon that’s chasing her. It was a funny, light-hearted way to open up the episode.

We have a serious and touching moment when Brennan shows concern for Max and talks about how they might not have long together, so she wants to be as involved in his life as possible. Especially when it’s to do with things like his health. Despite the seriousness of it all we do move on to the lab in which we see the others teasing Cam (well mostly Hodgins, and a little from Arastoo). This scene genuinely made me laugh out loud. Every time I see them being anything remotely like a family it makes me very happy.

We even get an adorable scene between Arastoo and Cam in which we see him making her smile/laugh and just in general we get to see them be the adorable couple they are.

The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 11: ‘Hostiles and Calamities’ Review

This weeks episode jumps back a little and honestly, it felt slightly odd at first. We go all the way back to Negan returning with Eugene. It wasn’t that much of a surprise because we tended to catch up with the main sides and we haven’t seen the Saviors camp since episode 7 so at some point, we were going to have to return to them. However, it did take some getting used to knowing we had back-tracked a little.

Saying that, I never thought an episode that focused so much on Eugene would be that interesting, but it really was. For this episode we mostly focus on him and Dwight. So I’m going to split this review into two and talk about each of them.

Bones Season 12 Episode 6: ‘The Flaw in the Saw’ Review

THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS.

Before we get into this review I do have to say that it was nice to see Brandon Soo Hoo at the start, even if it wasn’t for very long. He’s most recently been in the TV series From Dusk Till Dawn which I highly recommend you check out! Anyway, on with the review.

This week’s episode was one of the more lighthearted ones, but if you saw the preview for the next episode then you know that this is the calm before the storm.

  • Christine angrily going to her room, throwing her bike helmet away and Booth catching it was a great scene. I love any moments between the Brennan/Booth family and this one was simple but great.
  • The case of the week was pretty different and the whole atmosphere just felt very Bones like. It wasn’t too serious and there was a lot of humour planted throughout the investigation, but also just the episode in general.
  • Rodolfo Fuentes is the intern of the week and that bit where he was in the container of body parts (and goodness knows what else) was disgusting but also really funny. The fact that Hodgins was hiding the skull so that Rodolfo would have to keep searching, was a little cruel but again, reminded me of the old Hodgins. Also, it was hilarious that Cam let him continue on for another five minutes.
  • Brennan and Booth going to check out the competition, and Booth being really into it.

The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 10: “New Best Friends” Review

THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS.

This week we meet a new community: the Scavengers, which gives more leverage to the fact that the season will most likely end with the war against the Saviors beginning which will most likely lead into next season. Either way, let’s talk about the new community.

So far every community we’ve come across seems to be run differently, which makes it more interesting, and makes it easier to remember each community. When the leader of the Scavengers threw Rick into that pit it was something that I wasn’t expecting. Of course, he managed to survive against the armoured Walker, but I like how he used the things around him to trap the Walker and then killed it. At first he seemed to panic (rightfully so) but in the end, he managed to get the task done and prove himself to the Scavengers.

Bones Season 12 Episode 5: “The Tutor in the Tussle” Review

THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS.

So this week’s review is going to be short and sweet and talk about three major points. This episode continues the streak of a really good season, and even the case of the week was interesting.

The first major point I want to about our Brennan’s books. There are times where I forget about them, but this week’s episode gave the best reminder. It was much more entertaining that she failed in becoming the person to read the audiobook versions. I feel like it made the whole thing even better as opposed to her actually getting the gig. However, the best thing about her books coming up again is finding out that Fisher is a long-time fan of her work and even wrote fanfiction at one point.
