Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Episode 8 Recap: Who Hacked the Hospital?!

The action went into high gear on Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Episode 8 when it emerged that the hospital had been hacked. 

Everything was calm in the opening scenes of the hospital, with Meredith wondering what her next big milestone would be while preparing for surgery. 

During an interview about the Harper Avery win, Meredith was surprised when she realized her surgery time was diminishing. 

So, she cut the interview short and went to grab an intern for her surgery. Jo was struggling to play a mean doctor, and Meredith took Schmitt off of his hands. 

Meredith’s patient needed her spleen operating on, so she prepared the woman for surgery. They went the keyhole route because it would leave the least amount of scarring. 

Things took a horrifying turn when the hospital was hacked and Meredith and Schmitt had to act fast. Meredith realized that she needed to open the woman up, so she sent Schmitt for blood. 

The issue was that the blood room’s passcode was changed during the hack, meaning Meredith had a woman who needed blood on the operating table. 

Schmitt ultimately gave up some of his own blood and it helped garner him some brownie points with the award-winning surgeon. 

Bailey had a snafu with the FBI when she asked them to let Jackson pay the $ 20 million ransom out of his own funds, and it made the FBI go crazy because they did not want it to get out. 

Jackson and Maggie worked together to save a man, but they had to take him to a local hospital because if the electricity shut off, the man would not be able to breathe. 

On the helicopter, the man’s tubing came out and blood sprayed across the whole helicopter, but it did not seem as if the patient was going to make it out of this mess alive. 

Alex and Jo worked with a child who was in trouble because he may or may not have another clot in his brain. As his condition deteriorated, the doctors scrambled to find out whether the kid had been given a vital vitamin. 

They could give him a drug if he had been given it, but Alex and Amelia decided to go ahead with the drug because they thought it was a chance worth taking. 

However, Jo found the doctor who was supposed to administer the vitamin, and learned that he did not give the kid it. As Jo raced back to stop Alex from giving the drug, she bumped into a familiar face. 

Her abusive ex-husband was in Seattle Grace! Oh, and Alex gave the kid the drug. 

What the hell is going on?

We’ll find out January 18 when Grey’s Anatomy returns to ABC!


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.

The Voice Recap: Who Did Miley Cyrus Take to the Live Shows?!

Miley Cyrus is the final coach to take whittle her team of six down to three in preparation for the live shows, and it it’s a complicated process for the singer and coach because her group of six were very strong. 

But Miley also had to take into consideration the fact that voting was opening when the live shows kicked off and that she needed people who would strike a chord with the public. 

As much as The Voice is a show about people with the best singing technique advancing to the next stage, it is also a popularity contest, and if your contestant is not popular, it makes things dicey. 

Brooke Simpson – “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World”

Brooke wanted to choose her song for herself, and it became clear that she should get to do that for the whole season because her performance was extraordinary. From the quiet opening, right up to the epic conclusion, she owned that stage. 

Thankfully, she advanced to the next stage, and we are pleased about it. 

Karli Webster – “Coat of Many Colors”

Unlike most of the other artists who have appeared on the show via a comeback, Karli had an excellent song that paired up well with her voice. While her performance was excellent, it was difficult to set it apart from Brooke’s and that Miley decided it was best to cut her losses with the performer. 

This stage is not the best because some of the better singers slip through the cracks, but that’s just the name of the game. 

Adam Pearce – “Love Hurts”

Miley wanted Adam to succeed, and that’s why she gave him this song. She thought it was time to let audiences see the real him, but he still seemed like a bit of a nervous wreck. 

His singing was great, but without that charisma to get audiences on side, it was not worth the risk to take him any further. 

Ashland Craft – “When I Think About Cheatin’”

Ashland worried about going for the high notes, but Miley was not one to let that slide and pushed her act to perform to the best of her ability. She secured the high note, and that was enough for Miley to keep her in the process. 

Moriah Formica – “World Without You”

Moriah wanted to make it to the live shows, so she cranked up the volume, but her voice sounded shaky throughout the whole performance, and it proved that she was not the right one to advance. Miley let her go. 

Janice Freeman – “Fall for You”

Janice had her work cut out for her with that song choice, but it was a thrilling rendition that made everyone happy. Yes, she got through!

So, that means we have 12 people hitting up the stage next week for the first live show of the season. 

Let’s recap who is advancing…

  • Team Adam: Addison Agen, Jon Mero, Adam Cunningham
  • Team Miley: Brooke Simpson, Janice Freeman, Ashland Craft
  • Team Jennifer: Davon Fleming, Shi’Ann Jones, Noah Mac
  • Team Blake: Keisha Renee, Red Marlow, Chloe Kohanski

What do you think of the decisions?

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 7 Recap: Another Fiery Feud Kicks Off

Danielle Staub’s return was always going to make sparks fly, but the drama from her has been rather subdued to date. 

That all changed on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 7 when she was put on the spot once again for Dolores allegedly warning her about Teresa Giudice only wanting money. 

When the episode got underway, Siggy Flicker was going on about her brand new idea to host overnight retreats to help empower women. If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you will know that Siggy has done anything but empower her co-stars. 

She’s flat-out publicly shamed some of them, belittled them and made them feel like their feelings are not being taken into consideration. We shudder to think what she would be saying about Margaret if Dolores did not manage to get her to give the fashion mogul another chance. 

It’s unclear whether Michael knows his wife does not empower women. Maybe that’s the reason why he wants her to do fewer things associated with extending her brand. At the first big speech of the retreat, it seemed like Siggy was calling Margaret out in the same way she called Melissa out two weeks ago. 

Margaret, and most viewers, prepared for the worst when Siggy brought up the whole “Soggy Flicker” thing. But Siggy opened up to a whole room full of people about the various names she was called in school. 

It was horrible to watch because, for the first time, it seemed like Siggy was being genuine with all of the women about her past. The ladies then made their way to a room that included various things for them to do. 

They could talk about plastic surgery, get some new pictures taken for their dating profiles, get make-up done, or even buy clothing with empowering statements written on them. 

Most of the ladies bonded, but Teresa turned to Danielle and told her about a meeting she had with Dolores. Teresa noted that she had known Dolores for over twenty years, and it would not be wise to cut her out. 

Danielle got on board with that, but she was not impressed when she heard that Dolores practically called her a drug abuser. Danielle managed to keep her composure, but the two ladies went at it over dinner. 

Dolores questioned Danielle’s motives for being friends with Teresa after all of the years of animosity. Danielle denied that she had any bad blood with Teresa, noting that she wanted to be friends with her. 

Somehow, we believe her, but she does have a sketchy track record when it comes to keeping people close to her. The other ladies seemed to collectively agree that Dolores went below the belt by saying she had a drug problem. 

Danielle is not one to let things go, and if the trailer at the close of the episode is anything to go by, she will get her revenge, and it will be worth the wait. 

The episode featured a lot of filler, and it’s becoming increasingly apparent that these women are just not able to bring the drama. They don’t make the fight scenes like they once did, and it’s sad. 

We would even go as far as to say it may be time to rest this iteration of the franchise. All of the stories have been done to death previously. The only two that can still bring some drama are Dolores and Danielle. 

What do you think about all of this? Sound off below!


The Flash Season 4 Episode 6 Recap: When Harry Met Harry

Barry may have brought Ralph onto the team, but he wanted to make sure the new addition knew how to keep the citizens of Central City safe. 

When The Flash Season 4 Episode 6 got underway, Barry realized after a young girl found herself in the hospital that it was time to school Ralph. 

He wanted to reiterate that, more than anything, it was better to keep every citizen safe as opposed to going all guns blazing after the villains. 

Ralph took the words of wisdom to heart, and instead of taking the meta down, he decided it was a good idea to save the security guard in the first instance. 

Thankfully, Barry was on tap to deal with the meta. Barry later visited the little girl in the hospital to make sure she was okay and to make her laugh. 

See! This dude has a heart and making him part of the team was a good move, you guys!

Meanwhile, Harry turned to three different iterations of himself – one of them from Earth-12, one from Earth-47 and another from Earth-22. 

He wanted to find a way to unmask the elusive DeVoe. Harry was not impressed with the help from the men and seemingly disbanded the group. 

Not one to let Harry make a mistake, Cisco stepped in and told him that he should stop being so hard on himself and try a little less hard to get some results. 

With the team back together, they managed to identify Clifford DeVoe. If anything, it showed that Cisco’s wise words are always worth listening to. 

The man knows what he’s talking about. He’s been giving pep talks since he was born. No, seriously. 

Barry was ecstatic with the knowledge because he thought his team could finally get the upper hand against the villain. 

When the team set off to find them, they were presented by a husband and wife who did not know what was going on. 

In reality, they knew exactly what was going on and knew the meeting was going to occur, so they orchestrated the whole thing to imply they were do-gooders. 

This was an excellent cliffhanger, but what will the team do now to ensure a victory against the villains? Will they strike, or will they try and make them prove they are villains?

We have no idea, but we are so excited!

What did you think of all the developments?

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 Episode 19 Recap: Who Got a Divorce?

The ladies continued to be at odds on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 Episode 19, and one of them had marital woes that were just too difficult not to confront. 

When the episode got underway, Kelly Dodd decided her marriage was now a sham and talked to her mother about what she could do to salvage it. 

Her main issue with Michael is that he can be the nicest man in the world one minute, and a jerk the next. She has never heard that it takes two to tango. 

Kelly’s mother seemed actually to have a brain and noted that no marriage is perfect. Maybe she realized her daughter was part of the reason why it was failing. 

Meghan decided it was time to get the ladies together to celebrate the launch of her candle collection, The King Collection. But Kelly’s husband refused to get in a car with David Beador. 

Kelly wanted him to play nice so that everyone could just move on, but the man was having none of it. In his eyes, David was a villain and had to be dealt with as such. 

When the ladies assemble, it emerges that Tamra had not said anything to Vicki since Iceland. As is always the case on this show, Tamra was blaming Vicki for the whole thing and wanted her to be the one to reach out. 

Tamra then opened up about Vicki avoiding Eddie and planting a story to the tabloids. All of this only served to make everyone realize that there was no way Vicki was going to change. 

Peggy then went on an apology tour and apologized to Meghan for what she said about her kid crying and not getting attention. After that, Lydia thought it would be a good idea for all of the women to make amends. 

Kelly and Peggy had an in-depth conversation, and Kelly thought it would be a good time to apologize for what she said about her dad calling Peggy’s dad. 

These two do make a good pairing, but they’re not really bringing enough drama to the table, and maybe it’s time to refresh the cast somewhat. 

Tamra made up with Diko, and it became clear this episode was all about closure, which makes me think something drastic is in store for the next season. 

Tamra tried to get Peggy and Shannon back in good graces, but Shannon sulked her way out of the situation. She’s over trying to play nice with people who are going to drag her down to the ground. 

Shannon did not want to be put in the middle of the argument in the first place, so she felt like she was brought into it for no apparent reason.

The attention quickly turned to Kelly, who was officially finished with Michael. So, she decided to have Vicki dole out some marriage counseling to her. 

It results in Michael departing the situation. Vicki wanted to know the truth about the extent of their marital woes. Kelly made it clear that the marriage was done with. 

And that’s a wrap on another season of crazy drama. 

What did you think of it? Was it a great ending?

The Voice Recap: Who Made Top 12?!

The Voice is changing things up in its 13th cycle. Previous seasons have found the Top 24 whittled down to 12 in a series of live shows. 

This season, however, the power comes from the judges as they decided which of their six acts will make the three they will be advancing to the live shows. 

On Monday night’s two-hour spectacular, it was all about Team Jennifer and Team Blake. Let’s break down the performances and the results. 

Team Jennifer

Davon Fleming, “I Am Changing”

Davon has already proven that he has one of the best voices in the competition, but his opening for this energetic number was rather subdued. It was almost like it was going to be a disaster. 

But, it evolved along the way and became one of his best performances to date. We don’t know whether it was intentional. If it was, it was well played, and this man deserves to be on those live shows. 

Hannah Mrozak – “Learn to Let Go” 

This performance was a real surprise. Hannah has been hit or miss throughout the process, but it seemed like she got a handle on it during the rehearsals. 

Unfortunately, the performance for the judges cratered, and she sounded like she wanted to be anywhere other than on the stage to impress her coaches. It was tedious and awkward. 

Lucas Holliday – “The Beautiful Ones

Lucas had a lot riding on this performance. He was already circling the drain, and Jeniffer had the potential to give him a song that would connect with his voice. 

Like Hannah, Lucas struggled to achieve the higher notes, and that will likely give him an early exit out of the competition. 

Shi’Ann Jones – “Tattooed Heart”

Shi’Ann performed her routine in winning fashion. Seriously, this kid is up there as one of the fiercest and exciting competitors in the history of the series. 

There was a part she struggled with, but she managed to pull it all back together before it was too late. 

Chris Weaver – “California Soul”

Jennifer said that this song should get Chris another round of applause from the panel. Did she set him up for disaster? His rendition was middling, at best. His vocals did not fit with the song. 

He tried to emulate the artist, and that’s why he struggled. There was nothing fresh or exciting about it, and that’s something that’s needed. 

Noah Mac – “In the Air Tonight”

Noah went with an old Phil Collins number, and it was a surprisingly robust performance. He has the charisma and the charm to get far, and his vocals will continue to help. 

Team Blake

Red Marlow – “Chiseled in Stone” 

Red went with a song that he went really well with his voice. He successfully managed to keep the pitch and intonation in check and proved to everyone watching that he was one of the ones to watch in the competition. 

Chloe Kohanski – “Time After Time”

There was something about this performance that fell flat on so many levels. Like, there was nothing that made me want to even imagine her in the Top 12. Some people act as though they want it and then there’s Chloe. 

Natalie Stovall – “Callin’ Baton Rouge”

Natalie had a second chance, and it was her time to prove Blake made the right move. She did prove it with a performance that was fine-tuned and a cut above her other ones. Seriously, this girl needs a record deal. 

Esera Tuaolo – “How Do I Live?”

At this stage of the game, you expect the performers to give their all. If this was his all, then we don’t even know what the coaches saw in him in the first place. 

This seemed like a karaoke number. Nothing more. 

Mitchell Lee – “Heaven” 

Mitchell had a great song to work with, and while it would seem that he would be able to hone his skills and make it his own, he did not. This was his time to shine, and it fell flat. 

Keisha Renee – “Love Can Build a Bridge”

Keisha has been the Queen of the high notes since she first appeared on the show, and boy, did she have some high notes left to give. Her performance was electrifying and proved that she was in the right place. 

When it came to saying goodbye to some people, Jennifer decided it was right to keep Davon Fleming, Noah Mac, and Sh’Ann Jones. That meant that Hannah, Lucas, and Chris were let go. 

Meanwhile, Blake kept Keisha, Red, and Chloe. Natalie, Esera, and Mitchell were let go. 

What did you think of all the twists and turns?

Did the right people leave?

Teen Mom 2 Reunion Recap: Who Got Cheated On? Who Stormed Off?

With the dust settling from last week’s bombshell season finale, the Teen Mom 2 cast reunited Monday night for an emotional sit-down.

Then some cast members stormed off set. But we’ll get to that in a little while. We begin with the lowdown on Kailyn Lowry’s love life …

Lowry gave Dr. Drew the sad rundown about being cheated on during her pregnancy by Chris Lopez, her mysterious third baby daddy.

We’re talking the entire time she was pregnant, basically.

“The pregnancy was really hard,” Kailyn confessed.

Kailyn’s experience getting pregnant by Chris was so bad, Lowry said it was the kind of thing she wouldn’t wish on her “worst enemy.”

These days, she said, they aren’t communicating.

Lopez has not even seen their child, Lux Russell, in more than a month, and it’s unclear when (or if) he will do so again. Just insane.

While it’s not a good thing by any means, Kailyn can at least rest assured that she can take care of herself as a boss mom. But still.

Leah Messer then took her turn in the hot seat and discussed the struggles of splitting up with Jeremy Calvert, her second ex-husband.

“I didn’t have any support,” Leah said. “I was alone.”

Messer even admitted she was suicidal at the time.

Her kids, though, were her “light at the end of the tunnel” and pulled her out of her depression, and she and Jeremy are better lately.

They’re not getting back together, however.

Calvert and Messer’s romantic past, and future, have long been subject to such speculation, but the two are just co-parenting. Period.

(Apparently Jeremy broke up with his girlfriend, who we didn’t even know existed, recently, and also split with fiancee Brooke Wehr.)

Leah said that despite what the rumors might say, she’s happy being single and focusing on her kids, which is probably a good thing.

Okay, we’ll say it, it’s definitely a good thing.

Chelsea Houska dished about Adam Lind’s ongoing drug abuse problem and the profound effect it’s having on their daughter, Aubree.

Houska hasn’t told Aubree exactly what’s going on.

How could she possibly? What do you even say?

“It’s hard because you don’t want to sugarcoat it but you don’t want to lie to them,” Chelsea said, admitting that she feels guilty personally.

For giving Aubree a drug-addicted father, she feels responsible on some level, despite the happy home and life she’s given the youngster.

“In a perfect world, he would get better and be a good dad and I could trust him,” she said, but she has no faith that will be the case.

Then it was time for the main event …

Jenelle Evans’ appearance began with questions about her relationship with her mom and her wedding, but soon got very out of hand.

Asking her about David Eason will do that.

“Everyone tries bashing him,” she said.

When Dr. Drew noted that Jenelle seems drawn to … um, aggressive types of guys, Evans decided she’d had enough and she peaced.

“He’s trying to make her upset and it’s pissing me off,” David, who married her earlier this fall, said of the MTV personality. “I’m leaving.”

Fortunately, or unfortunately, Nathan Griffith came on stage instead, promptly bashing David for disciplining his son with Jenelle, Kaiser.

“I just think it’s a very controlling relationship,” he said, and his mom then joined in, adding that she is “terribly frightened for Kaiser.”

According to Nathan’s mom, Kaiser told her that David punched him and gave her reason believe there’s drug abuse in Jenelle’s home.

She said that is the reason she is filing for temporary custody of her grandchild. “All I want is someone to protect [Kaiser],” she said.

Stay tuned for next week when this really gets bad … and open the gallery above to find out what happened behind the reunion scenes.


The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 4 Recap: Who Became a Casualty of War?!

The war continued on The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 4, and we picked up right after the big shootout that left several kingdommers on the ground. 

Yes, the saviors were well and truly doling out some revenge for all of their people that got killed. Ezekiel emerged from a pile of dead bodies and was relatively unscathed. 

He was sad. Shiva was nowhere to be seen, and he felt like he screwed up by having them all out there in the open admitting that they won that leg of the war. 

One of Negan’s men took Ezekiel along with him because he wanted to be the one to hand Ezekiel over to Negan. He wanted that badge of honor from the violent killer. 

At the outpost, however, the savior could not get back inside. It was chained shut. In a surprising move, Jerry appeared out of the shadows and took the man out of the equation. 

Ezekiel was free, but that did not mean they were out of the woods yet. The savior previously made it clear that he was going to have Rick, Ezekiel, and Maggie for his boss at some point. 

Yeah, that’s all out the window now. 

Ezekiel kept trying to give up on life. He felt like he had let everyone down, but Jerry was there to give him some words of wisdom. 

While the Saviors were preparing to take the weapons to another outpost, Carol snuck in and took out a bunch of them. She was then stuck in the car park with a lot of them. 

In a surprising twist, she surrendered, but it was merely a ploy to have her allow a bunch of walkers into the compound to dispatch of the enemies. 

The saviors made their escape, but Daryll and Rick were right behind and started firing off rounds and rounds of bullets at them. 

Carol, Jerry, and Ezekiel tried to make it back to the Kingdom, but Ezekiel had lost the will to live. He kept telling them to leave him behind, but they were not having it. 

Instead, they kept him going strong every step of the way… until they were ambushed. That’s when the most shocking moment of the entire series took place. 

Shiva sacrificed herself to save everyone, and she was eaten by a swarm of zombies. This show knows how to hit you in the feels. 

Ezekiel seems like he’s going to ditch his duties and hand them over to someone else. 

Who should be King/Queen?
