What matters to you.


  • Things are really heating up for our pals after last week’s episode. Will the good (ish, let’s be real) guys and gals prevail? Or will Maggie and her cadre of goons and evil bankers win the day? Only one way to find out: onward!
  • Get a recap of all 4 episodes of Netflix's Bridgerton Season 3 part 1, plus other shows you might like to watch while waiting for part 2.
  • Last time, we met Jake and Max’s dad, witnessed the creation of the Scottish Avengers, confirmed that Rich Politician Type is indeed connected to Maggie and Roy’s crime family, and got to see Yvonne making the (hopefully not horrible) choice to trust Demoted so she can have a cop buddy to take down Maggie. It was a lot!
  • Last episode, the boys ended up back in Scotland (and back in the clutches of scary mobsters), Kenny and Yvonne both independently ended up looking into some shenanigans involving the criminal enterprise behind some very fancy weed, and Roy turned out to be alive (before promptly getting killed). There was also a new guy (Rich Politician Type), who’s connected to this whole mess… somehow.
  • So last week’s episode was fairly horrific, no? This week, in our season finale (how??) we’re kicking things off on a much lighter note: there’s about to be a Mother of the Year competition in Poplar, and the first prize is a fancy washing machine and an opportunity to be entered into the London-wide competition. How you can possibly pick one mom in this entire community is beyond me, so luckily I’m not on the hook to make that call.
  • Well friends, it’s finally time for another season of Guilt, and this time, we’re kicking things off in Chicago, where Max and Jake (previously dubbed Cheekbones and Softie, respectively, in these recaps) have formed a sort of peaceable, if impoverished, detente. They (not very successfully) run the bar Jake bought with his payoff from Evil Mobster Roy after season 1, and Jake’s relationship with the ethically dubious Angie is on the rocks. Despite this semi-disaster, Max can’t — or won’t — go back to Edinburgh: Evil Mobster Roy’s WAY scarier half, Maggie, is still out and about and ready to murder his ass.
  • New official midwives mean new outfits, and that means that this episode kicks off with the Nonnatus crew handing over brand new red cardigans to Rosalind and Joyce. It’s a lovely moment, and a well deserved celebration, and it’s almost immediately ruined by the man who’s rapidly becoming my nemesis, Mr. Trixie. He’s dropping his wife off at work, you see, and is about to also make something official. Something that’s obviously stressing him out. What that is, we don’t know, so we just get to panic about it. Fun!
  • Reader, somehow we find ourselves fast approaching the end of the season. Wild, I know! And there’s so much to sort out before we leave Poplar until Christmas: will the trainees stick around? Will Mr. Trixie ever tell his wife what the heck is going on with him? Will the Turners have to give up May? Much remains to be seen, but this week, we start off with a visit to Cyril, who’s studying for his social work gig. Next up, we head to Nonnatus, where Nancy tries to convince Sister Julienne to help her get her shift switched.
  • Last week? TB. This week? The seaside! Yes, you read that right — Vi’s planning an excursion to the beach as her first event as mayor, and everyone is extremely excited. Everyone except Fred, who, as the ‘Mayor’s Consort’ has to help plan the thing instead of relaxing. There are invitations to hand out, sandcastle contest prizes to be picked out, and a bus company to pay.
  • Well friends, it’s officially summer in 1969 Poplar, which means that this episode, we’re getting heavy moon landing vibes.
