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

    Azie Tesfai cowrote one of the best Supergirl episodes ever.

    🚨Obviously, there are MASSIVE spoilers ahead!🚨

    1. First, Sex Education Season 3 started streaming on Netflix, and this season had a lot of character growth for a lot of characters, but specifically for Aimee, Adam, and Ruby.

    2. And on Sex Education, the season ended with Maeve, who finally decided to give her relationship with Otis a try, deciding to leave for a study abroad program in the US.

    3. On Supergirl, Kelly tried to get Supergirl and the rest of her friends to pay attention to a community that was being forgotten after the Ormfell building collapse, and it was just a powerhouse performance from Azie Tesfai, who also cowrote this episode.

    4. And on Supergirl, Kelly officially assumed the role of Guardian and helped save Joey and the rest of his friends, and it was just such a badass moment.

    5. 9-1-1 returned with Season 5, which featured the 118 dealing with a citywide blackout, but the biggest moment from the episode was Athena confronting her attacker in court, him escaping, and Lou dying.

    The lawyer actually being on Jeffrey's side and helping him escape Lou's custody was not something I was expecting.

    6. The Other Two Season 2 finale dealt with Pat collapsing at Chase's fashion show, but I'm sorry, all I can talk (and laugh) about is this conversation between Brooke and Cary about his "hole."

    Brooke saying, "I love that site! Now I can't go on without seeing my brother's hole again"

    7. The Goldbergs kicked off Season 9 with a heartfelt and emotional tribute to George Segal, aka Pops. Each family member dealt with their grief after we learned that Pops died peacefully in his sleep.

    8. On Riverdale, we found out the Moth Men are actually a clan of distant Blossom relatives, and while that is as bonkers as it sounds, it led to this truly heartbreaking moment when Betty and Alice find Polly's body.

    9. On Ted Lasso, we followed Coach Beard on a wild night out in London after Richmond's devastating loss to Manchester City.

    10. On the Chicago Fire Season 10 premiere, Boden announced that he's been chosen as the new deputy district chief, which means he'll be leaving 51, and Stella was pretty upset about it.

    Also, don't worry, everyone made it out of the boat explosion from the Season 9 finale.

    11. On the Chicago P.D. Season 9 premiere, Upton and Voight dealt with killing the person who held Burgess hostage, and the episode ended with Upton and Halstead officially getting engaged.

    I can only imagine Upton's big Roy secret will come back to make things complicated for her and Halstead, but right now, I'm kind of happy for these two. Oh, also, Burgess is alive but thinks Roy is still out there somewhere. 

    12. On the Chicago Med Season 7 premiere, we learned that April left Med for a nurse practitioner program, and Natalie briefly made an appearance and said goodbye to Will.

    Both Torrey DeVitto and Yaya DaCosta exited the series.

    15. On the Nine Perfect Strangers series finale, everyone got a happy ending, which was honestly kind of surprising. They all left Tranquillum House after the Marconis reunited with Zach and were able to say goodbye.
