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

    My love for Atticus and Leti grows each and every week.

    🚨Obviously, MASSIVE spoilers ahead!🚨

    1. First, on Lovecraft Country, Dee dealt with not only her mother's disappearance, but also the death of Emmett Till, who was her best friend.

    Also, Dee was haunted by two ghouls, who were inspired by the cover of Uncle Tom's Cabin. However, all of the other characters were too busy to notice Dee struggling, which served as an example of how young Black girls' and boys' stories often fall through the cracks.

    2. Also on Lovecraft Country, Atticus and Leti learned that Atticus was going to die in the future. So Leti, who was desperate to protect Atticus and their child, turned to Christina, who made her invulnerable.

    Basically, Ji-Ah arrived in town and warned Atticus and Leti about Atticus's death. Meanwhile, Atticus revealed to Montrose that in his travels last week, he obtained a book, Lovecraft Country, written by his future son. Also, Leti still hasn't ~officially~ told Atticus that she's even pregnant. There's A LOT going on.

    3. On the Ted Lasso season finale, despite an amazing performance, AFC Richmond ended up losing a heartbreaking game to Manchester City, which means they are out of the Premier League.

    Don't worry though, Ted is still going to coach and they are ready for anything.

    4. Also on Ted Lasso, Roy got off the bench and went in for what could've been the last play of his career after he got injured — this moment between Roy and Keeley broke my heart.

    5. On The Boys, Hughie and Lamplighter infiltrated Vaught to save Annie, but Lamplighter set himself on fire once they were inside.

    11. Also on Emily in Paris, while I cringed through most of Season 1 — I mean, how was Emily so bad at social media?! — I will say, I did love Gabriel and Emily's chemistry, but Camille 100% deserved better.
