    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    God I hope so; I hope it isn't just an editing trick. Ideally we'd be seeing Tony get genuine professional help because the movies have been pretty upfront about his compounding PTSD over the years without helping him much (understandable from a storytelling perspective, but oy). But I'll certainly take Steve, who I firmly believe has also had PTSD since his first movie though less overtly. Though honestly there's a solid case for any of the Avengers at this point. Showing one of them at least trying to manage it would mean a lot to me.

    S04.E02: Lost, Found, Fucked

    The circumstances may suck, but it was so good to see Eliot leaning against Quentin. That would make a nice little tumblr pic... y'know, without the blood spatter and knowledge of the actual storyline. I just love my boys and miss their relationship, okay? Unless I missed something, Julia's lucky that her plan didn't permanently kill her, because she doesn't know why she didn't stay dead. We don't even know why. So if it's spell-related, then she's purposely taking away that spell's energy knowing full well that magic stops on campus after 11pm. There was zero guarantee that the battery would weaken rather than kill her and then just burn out.

    That cast always looks gorgeous on the red carpet, looking forward to seeing them.

    Bad Times at the El Royal (2018)

    I don't think this film will win given the long list of contenders this year, but at least one Oscar nom would be a nice nod. It really does deserve something. Saw this in theater months ago so we may be talking about two different things, but if you're talking about the blanket bundles she pulled from the trunk of her car, there wasn't anything in them. She was pinning blankets to the walls of her room to muffle her singing (presumably so she wouldn't disturb her neighbors).

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Before we got the official title, I was referring to this movie as Avengers: Hold Me While I Cry. I suspect many of us will be a mess. Hell, I'll probably still be a blubbering mess on my third viewing.

    S08.E08: Soujourn

    Despite my growing frustration (and common sense re: this show) I'm officially crossing my fingers for a cliffhanger. I'd rather be a little annoyed that we're getting consecutive seasons on an anthology series than very annoyed that they botched the apocalypse season of a show with "horror" right there in the title. We need to get back to the present of this timeline stat, even though I know we still have much that could/should be covered beforehand. I wanna see all the truly creepy things that one would expect from the end of the world. I wanna see plenty of Michael once he has come into his own. I want the actual apocalypse that we've been promised so I can at least be a little invested when the witches inevitably reverse it. I wonder if this season was going to happen later but then Ryan Murphy worked with Cody Fern and knew he'd found his Michael and just couldn't wait? As for the actual episode: the Satanist church was a wasted opportunity to go darker than this season has been but it was actually kind of amusing to see how normal and bland it was, mostly because of Michael's reaction. He was so uninspired. Poor kid is lost and looking for guidance and look where he winds up. Then he meets the tech guys and it's more of the same. You could tell he was constantly eyerolling and thinking, "JFC, Dad, I ask for a sign and this is what you give me?" Probably also explains why Michael isn't traveling with an entourage during the apocalypse. His people are so lame.

    S08.E06 Return to Murder House

    The house's stab-happy instincts and its less than stellar history regarding children mean that Tate probably never had a chance. Between his parents and then his mother's remarriage he presumably spent some/most of his formative years on a hellmouth. Putting aside the psychological damage of whatever messed-up ghosts he probably saw wandering about as a kid, the evil in that place probably soaked into him like radiation. Did he have issues? Sure. But my impression from the first season was that he wasn't the kind of guy that would burn his stepfather and mass-murder his peers. As always, YMMV.

    S08.E07: Traitor

    I'm amused that the show seems as disinterested in Supreme!Mallory as I am. Her active involvement in this episode was less than five minutes and her reveal as the next Supreme was practically a throwaway moment. My (cracky, probably 100% wrong) theory is that Coco isn't just around for comic relief. Her developing powers are essentially seeing what something's made of. So if she can eventually see what makes up people as well, she can also see what's missing, such as Mallory's soul if the plot twist is that she's actually evil. (Which is problematic for me, because I love my villains and she would pale in comparison to Fern and Bates.) Ryan Murphy knows we only have three episodes left, right? These flashbacks have been taking forever. I want to get back to the current storyline with the post-apocalyptic showdown and Michael's luscious locks.

    I don't have anything substantial to add but credit where it's due: Cody Fern made the leather outfit work.

    Bad Times at the El Royal (2018)

    "I'm bored." Darlene's speech to Billy in a calm, even, I am done wasting my emotions on men's bullshit tone was perfection. I'm not familiar with Cynthia Erivo but she sold that scene. And her singing was gorgeous. I'm not usually a fan of singing in non-musicals because to me it tends to feel indulgent or shoehorned in, but every time she sang it was perfection. Really, the entire cast was excellent. And the set, too.

    I haven't seen this movie yet but I think you're referring to the Feigco logo:

    S08.E05: Boy Wonder

    I don't want to get too attached to Misty and Queenie because if Cordelia fixes this apocalypse mess by turning back time, then both ladies go back to unhappy eternities that she can't save them from. (And Madison too, but meh.) It was really good to see Misty Day again, though. I am enjoying this season; I'd bingewatch the rest if it was an option. But this season could easily be 7-8 episodes and still cover everything. I also think it may have been a mistake to have this season be the supposed end of the world. If all the seasons are connected, then the apocalypse doesn't hold much concern for the viewer when we already know that additional seasons are coming. And it would've been nice to spend the final season seeing our favorite characters again. And to end on a positive note: MURDER HOUSE!!! Finally, finally, it's here. We only got, like, a five second glimpse this week and I still did a happy dance. Next week is gonna be great.

    S08.E04: Could It Be . . . Satan?

    He didn't break out of jail because he didn't want to. The entire scenario was bait for the warlocks. Something big enough and weird enough that 1) the warlocks would hear about it and 2) think 'fellow warlock' instead of 'psycho killer.' It's a wolf in sheep's clothing kind of deal. Actually having to kill someone to accomplish it was just a bonus. The result is him in a secure location, possibly improving his abilities (not clear how much they actually need to teach him), and definitely surrounding himself with a herd of followers that consider him the Chosen One.

    S08.E04: Could It Be . . . Satan?

    I'm curious about Michael's actual age. He's only 7 or 8, right? So when did he age and how quickly? It adds an interesting layer to his personality and motives because even if his mind and body are fully developed, he has less than a decade of actual life experience. IIRC Cordelia went public at the end of Coven. There was a long line of girls outside the house and Kyle was showing some new students to their room. (This is also why the boys' school is now underground, because of people's reactions to her going public.) So it makes sense that boys with powers would start coming out of the woodwork as well. I suppose you could also fanwank that witches and warlocks would also start sprouting up as a natural response to Michael's birth. In Coven the girls started developing multiple powers and Cordelia (or maybe Myrtle?) mentioned that during times of need their powers would increase. So maybe the birth of the antichrist woke up a bunch of latent powers to combat him?

    This was the fourth episode, not the eighth.
