    19 TV Moments From This Week That We Can't Stop Talking About

    This week consisted of me weeping over The Haunting of Bly Manor.

    🚨Obviously, MASSIVE spoilers ahead!🚨

    BuzzFeed

    1. First, The Haunting of Bly Manor started streaming on Netflix this week. Set in 1980s England, the show follows Dani, a young American nanny who is hired by Henry Wingrave to care for his orphaned niece and nephew, who reside at Bly Manor.

    2. Also on The Haunting of Bly Manor, T'Nia Miller gave one of the best performances when we shockingly found out about Hannah's fate in Episode 5.

    3. And on The Haunting of Bly Manor, I literally can't stop crying over Dani and Jamie's beautiful and heartbreaking relationship, especially when Jamie encouraged Dani to stay.

    And overall, Amelia Eve's performance as Jamie is something I will be thinking about for a long time, especially her moonflower monologue.

    4. On Lovecraft Country, Hippolyta returned and led Atticus, Leti, and Montrose back in time to the 1921 Tulsa massacre in order to retrieve the Book of Names from Dora's family before they died.

    The Book of Names was needed to save Dee in present day.

    5. Also on Lovecraft Country, Montrose confronted what happened to him during the Tulsa massacre, and we learned that Atticus was actually the stranger who helped saved him.

    6. On The Boys Season 2 finale, Ryan shockingly used his powers on Stormfront in order to save Becca — this can't possibly be the last we see of Stormfront.

    7. Also on The Boys, when Ryan used his powers, he heartbreakingly and accidentally killed Becca in the process — I am still crying over this.

    Homelander tried to take Ryan away, but luckily Butcher and Queen Maeve stopped him.

    8. And The Boys finale ended on a cliffhanger when it was revealed that Victoria is actually a Supe and is behind the exploding heads.

    9. The West Wing cast reunited for A West Wing Special to Benefit When We All Vote on HBO Max — the cast performed a staged reading of the Season 3 episode, "Hartsfield's Landing."

    Sterling K. Brown stepped in to play Leo McGarry, since John Spencer sadly died in 2005.

    10. Also on The West Wing, I just have to say that it was really great to see this cast as their iconic characters again, and they stepped back into their shoes as if no time had passed.

    11. Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts Season 3 started streaming on Netflix. This breathtaking final season follows Kipo and his friends as they look to make friends out of enemies all while dealing with Dr. Emilia's expanding control.

    12. On Supernatural, Amara finally revealed to Dean that the reason she brought Mary back was so that he could learn to love the real Mary, not just the fantasy of her.

    15. On We Are Who We Are, Fraser helped Caitlin become Harper before her date with Giulia, which included cutting Caitlin's hair.

    HBO

    16. Also on We Are Who We Are, at the end of their date, Giulia revealed that she knew Caitlin was a girl all along, and Caitlin ran away.

    18. Fear the Walking Dead returned with Season 6, and we learned that Morgan is still alive after getting shot last season, however he informed Ginny that the old Morgan is "dead."

    I feel like Morgan has reinvented himself like this at least three times.

    19. And finally, while these episodes weren't new, One Day at a Time made its broadcast TV debut on CBS. This week, the first two episodes of Season 4 aired and yes, they are still as funny and heartwarming as ever.
