S.H.I.E.L.D. Poll: If Evil Fitz's Machine Could 'Bring Back' One Fallen Hero....

29 minutes ago

The Chekhov’s Gun principle tells us that every dramatic element in a story must be necessary. And ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gave us much food for thought this week, with the revelation that Dr. Fitz’s Project Looking Glass is a nearly complete doohickie that will allow Aida, an AI stuck in android form, to inhabit a fabricated flesh-and-blood vessel. To be human… ish.

The Late Night host barely had to argue his point, instead queuing up a series of clips to showcase Potus’ hypocrisy when it comes to working around Congress to enact new laws.

Fargo Recap: There Will Be Blood

Need to catch up? Check out our previous Fargo recap here.

The sibling rivalry between Fargo‘s Ray and Emmit only got uglier this week… and yeah, even a little bloody, thanks to Nikki.

Ray’s conscience is nagging him about Maurice’s death by A/C — which is good, because he seemed a little too blasé about it last week, frankly. He shares his troubles with Nikki, and she responds by slapping him across the face. Twice. “There’s something wrong with your chi,” she informs him. “You’re all blocked up, babe.” The only way he can unblock himself, »

The following story contains spoilers from this week’s Empire. Proceed at your own peril.

Hell hath no fury like the Dubois family scorned.

In Wednesday’s Empire, Cookie rejected Angelo’s marriage proposal and then indirectly torpedoed his political career when his subsequent meltdown was caught on a hot mic (sound familiar?).
