    1. First, Lovecraft Country premiered this week. The new series follows Atticus, his Uncle George, and his friend Leti as they road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America while searching for Atticus's missing dad.

    It has only been one episode, but Jurnee Smollett and Jonathan Majors are already giving truly memorable performances.

    3. Teenage Bounty Hunters started streaming on Netflix. The new series follows Sterling and Blair, fraternal twins who end up joining forces with a veteran bounty hunter in order to make some extra cash.

    This show is like Veronica Mars, Sweet/Vicious, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer all rolled into one.

    4. Also on Teenage Bounty Hunters, Maddie Phillips and Anjelica Bette Fellini are absolutely hysterical together as Sterling and Blair, especially as they get more and more invested in bounty hunting.

    5. On Wynonna Earp, Waverly, Nicole, and Rachel dealt with the Clantons, the famous family that clashed with the Earps at the O.K. Corral — we also learned that Nicole seemingly made a deal with them while everyone was trapped in the Garden.

    I can't stop thinking about Katherine Barrell's amazing performance as Nicole Haught this season.

    6. Also on Wynonna Earp, Wynonna heartbreakingly dealt with a reaper that was sent to destroy her, and she convinced Jeremy to return to Purgatory and help again.

    7. On I May Destroy You, Arabella finally pieced together what happened the night she was sexually assaulted after spotting one of the men she was with the evening that it happened.

    This also happened after Arabella finally had a breakthrough while writing her book.

    8. On The 100, Bellamy continued to betray Clarke, Octavia, Raven, Echo, and the rest of his friends in an effort to help Cadogan and the other Disciples on their mission.

    9. Also on The 100, back on Sanctum, Murphy and Emori tried desperately to keep people safe after Sheidheda went on a killing spree and Nikki sought revenge.

    Can I just say, Murphy's character development over the course of The 100 is one of the best things to come out of this show.

    10. Coroner ended on a massive cliffhanger when Jenny and Mac found another piece of the dismembered body but couldn't warn Amanda before she reunited with Dylan, who is a prime suspect.
