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

    Is it too soon to start an Emmy Awards campaign for Jamie Chung from Lovecraft Country?

    🚨Obviously, MASSIVE spoilers ahead! And #9 mentions suicide.🚨


    1. First, on Lovecraft Country, we learned more about Ji-Ah, a nurse during the Korean War, who has been taken over by a kumiho, a nine-tailed fox demon that seduces and feeds off men.

    Ji-Ah asking why she has to be part of this and her mother saying it's because she wants her daughter back

    This was a brilliant hour of television that not only told Ji-Ah and Atticus's love story, but also explored a complicated mother-daughter relationship.

    2. Also on Lovecraft Country, I just have to give a shoutout to Jamie Chung, who gave one of my favorite TV performances of 2020, especially when Ji-Ah confronted Atticus about killing her friend.

    Ji-Ah saying that Atticus helped save her and they are not the monsters the world has made them into

    Also, Ji-Ah learned that Atticus is going to die, and I've never been more stressed.

    3. On The Boys, Hughie and Mother's Milk reunited with Butcher and were forced to confront Black Noir after he tracked them to Butcher's aunt's house.

    4. Also on The Boys, Homelander and Stormfront became a couple after Stormfront helped Homelander with his image after a video of him went viral.

    Honestly, Homelander and Stormfront might be one of the most terrifying couples in the history of TV.

    5. Pen15 returned with Season 2 this week. The new season follows Maya and Anna as they deal with new friends, relationships, and joining the school play.

    Dare I say, this was a perfect season of television.

    6. Also on Pen15, there were a ton of sad moments this season, but one of the most heartbreaking was when Maya begged her mom to pick her up from a sleepover.

    Maya on the phone saying, "Can you just come pick me up, please?"

    7. On Ted Lasso, Ted won a game of darts against Rupert, so now Rupert has to stay away from the team while Rebecca is in charge.

    Ted explaining to Rupert that he shouldn't judge people and maybe if he didn't, he would've figured out sooner that Ted is really good at darts.

    Someone in the comments last week mentioned how I needed to watch this show, and they were right. It's heartfelt, funny, and simply wonderful.

    8. Ratched started streaming on Netflix this week. Inspired by Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, the series tells the origin story of Mildred Ratched.

    The series was executive produced by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan.

    9. Also on Ratched, while this cast is stacked, Sophie Okonedo gave the most memorable performance when she arrived as Charlotte, a patient who has multiple personalities.


    10. On the penultimate episode of The 100, Clarke and Octavia tried to save Madi, but when they finally found her, she had been tortured almost to death — Madi is alive, but her brain was severely damaged.

    There was even a heartbreaking callback to Season 1, when Clarke hummed the same song to Madi that she sang before she put Atom out of his misery. Atom was also Clarke's first kill on the series.

    11. Also on The 100, Murphy, Raven, and Jackson desperately tried to save Emori, who had been crushed under a pile of rubble when a ceiling in the bunker collapsed.

    If Emori dies next week, I don't think I will ever recover.

    12. On the Coroner Season 1 finale, we learned that Jenny was shockingly the one who was responsible for her sister's death when they were younger.

    14. On We Are Who We Are, we learned more about Caitlin as she explored her sexuality, her relationship with her father, and more.

    We even got to see moments from the series premiere from Caitlin's perspective instead of Fraser's.

    15. And finally, LA's Finest made its broadcast TV debut this week. Starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, the series follows Sydney, a drug enforcement agent who is now working with the LAPD.
