Previously: We questioned whether or not Alex and Mer should be a couple, David reach a whole new level of slime ball, and HTGAWM continued to confuse the hell out of us.
Grey’s Anatomy, Season 12, Episode 11 – “Unbreak My Heart”
Shandle: I may get tomatoes thrown at me for this, but I was not a fan of this episode. I don’t really ship Japril. They were cute and it would have been nice to have them happy, don’t get me wrong, but they just aren’t a priority couple for me. I really did not like April last season. She still does not seem to get what her leaving that second time did to Jackson. I can’t believe she is pregnant! I bet they get married again and have a big church wedding.
Kathy: *grabs tomatoes* I loved, LOVED this episode! I have always felt like there was more going on with them that we don’t see. I really appreciated the inside view of their entire existence. It made me love them so much more, and Jackson, crying like that just got me.
Shandle: I also wasn’t a fan of the style of this episode. The watching in reverse was confusing to me. And that little line: “Sloan is on a plane to Idaho.” EFF YOU, writers!
Kathy: Yeah, I let out a yelp and David was like, “Oh the plane crash.” *sobs*
Shandle: The highlight for me was the impromptu dance party. That was cute.
Kathy: Mer saying, “Who died?” made me laugh so hard. She’s so broken.
Shandle: She is perfect!
Scandal, Season 5, Episode 12 – “Wild Card”
Shandle: Huck is right. Rowan and Jake are up to something, and Liv absolutely has a guy. Rowan also really needs to stop referring to Jake and Liv as his kids. It is creepy.
Kathy: I could not handle that scene. First of all, I thought Jake was talking about Liv the entire episode in reference to who he was dating, so that threw me. Then Huck, with her dad being her guy. I was insulted for her, but I knew he was right.
Shandle: I totally thought Jake was talking about Liv, too.
Shandle: Cy is horrible. I can’t believe he and Tom are a thing and that he has completely given up on Fitz. I knew Charlie wasn’t the babysitting type. I can’t wait to see Quinn’s reaction when she puts together that she was with the kid of the guy who “attempted to kill” the governor.
Kathy: Tom. What the hell is Tom even doing here. The whole kid story line was really hard to watch. I knew something was up the whole time, but it was too sinister for even me to grasp.
Shandle: Fitz was being a complete idiot. Thinking with his small head. I am glad Abby stood up to him. When she yelled at him, I cheered.
Kathy: This was the first time in a long time that I was ready to slap to him right in his big, fat face.
Shandle: David has crossed the line. The line is a dot to him. What he and Liz are doing to Susan is unforgivable.
Kathy: Again, take his Gladiator card and tell him to GTFO!
How to Get Away With Murder, Season 2, Episode 12 – “It’s A Trap”
Kathy: Laurel was the star of this episode, for me. She had an amazing arc this week. From her breakdown with Frank, running with Wes, to KISSING Wes and confronting Annalise. She is not the character I would have pictured for this journey, but I am really pleased with how it is going.
Shandle: Agreed. She is really standing out this season in a way I did not expect. I am also dying to know more about her father!
Kathy: Spotted Wade from Hart of Dixie!
Kathy: Seeing Frank’s character development is pretty great, too. It’s also interesting to see Annalise and Sam, pre-all the bad shit. I really appreciate that Annalise is upfront about not wanting children.
Shandle: They have all grown and changed so much in just 2 seasons. These characters have a depth I don’t think I have seen before in any other show.
Shandle: Bonnie and Asher broke my heart. I really want them to be happy.
Oh shit, Shonda! Moment of the night from “How to Get Away with Murder”
Kathy: Wes possibly killing his mom.
Shandle: I feel like I should have been more shocked by that, but I think I was always wondering if that was the truth. I remember Annalise and Eve’s reaction when he was brought to the police station: “What did we do?”
Kathy: What DID they do?? Will we ever know?
