‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Derek Is MIA

April 10th, 2015 9:10am EDT
'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap 'Crazy Love': Where In The World Is Derek
Shonda Rhimes swapped the ‘Thank God it’s Thursday’ tagline with ‘Throw Back Thursday’ by re-airing the very first Grey’s episode in primetime. Looking back on the pilot it’s wild to think Meredith and Derek got their roller coaster romance started with a one night stand. Fast forward 10 years later and they still keep the on call rooms steamy.

The “Crazy Love” episode starts with Mer and Der getting in some a.m. sex before he jets out to D.C. to hand in his resignation letter and government issued phone. Peace out, Obama. The Shepherds are at the height of their manic morning routine when...

10 Of Cookie Lyon's Most Bruising Verbal Jabs On 'Empire'
She’s one tough Cookie! No one can deliver a gut punch—physical or verbal—like Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson). Her verbal knockouts are as noteworthy as Floyd Mayweather’s fists. And no one is safe, especially Boo Boo Kitty. Below are 10 of Cookie’s most bruising verbal jabs.

Don’t Hush the Cookie Monster

Cookie’s grand entrance into the Empire boardroom nearly gets rebuffed by Lucious’ henchman Vernon.

Vernon: “Good to see you, Cookie…”

Cookie: “—Vernon, kiss my black ass.”

When shuttled into Lucious’ corner office, Cookie’s still not willing to back down:

Cookie: “You’re messing wit...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Has Derek's Cheating History Repeated Itself

March 20th, 2015 9:51am EDT
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap: Derek Returns A Cheater
If you’re looking for a definite confirmation that Derek has a D.C. side chick—Meredith already paints a descriptive snapshot of her—we might just get it.

But not in “Don’t Dream It’s Over” because as much as you can see a dress is blue and black, some people will view it as brown and white. In other words, things are never what they seem to be, even when it looks like they are. Including a mystery woman playing secretary on Derek’s phone. Yet, to Meredith it’s abundantly clear: he’s cheating. Her theory: “when you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras. It means that the most obvious an...

March 19th, 2015 10:34am EDT
'Empire' Season 1 Finale Recap: Long Live The New Lyon King
A girl fight, major character death and a Lyon gets caged. “Empire” writers pulled out all the tropes for the season finale. And not one sudsy scene disappointed. But you will be if you’re trying to avoid spoilers. So, consider this fair warning. Do not read beyond this point if “Empire” is still on your must-watch TV list.

Now that it’s just us. Let’s dive into “Die But Once” episode. Lucious (Terrence Howard) is tinkering on his piano until his ALS flare-up has him seeing double. As if that’s not enough to tap down, Becky (Gabourey Sidibe) comes bursting into his office with a to-do list...

'Empire' Season 2 Wish List

March 18th, 2015 2:01pm EDT
Empire - 'Die But Once/Who I Am' Season Finale
It’s nearly a wrap on “Empire’s” freshman season and as difficult as it is to bid these characters adieu (Cookie, don’t go.) at least we know they’ll be back for a second season. All the more reason to get our bids in for what we want to see next. Lee Daniels, executive producer, teased media mogul Oprah Winfrey and Oscar winning performer Common will make appearances in season two. But all other talk about the sophomore season has been as secretive as Cookie and Malcolm’s love affair. Mainly because it’s in the writing stages. Let’s see if the writers will be keen on these ideas.

All Rela...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap: ‘The Distance’- Amelia The Superhero
Grab your cape “Grey’s” watchers because Amelia Shepherd shows us what it takes to be a superhero. First you’ve got to stand with your legs apart and hands on hips. Then hype yourself up enough to believe you can conquer the impossible. It’s what she did in “The Distance” episode.

Super Amelia is five hours into the Herman surgery before coming to a standstill. Her Kryptonite seems to be indecision. She’s trapped between two major areas of the brain affecting speech, vision and her dream box. Realizing she’s painted herself into a corner, Amelia just stops.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap ‘Staring At The End’– Student Becomes Teacher

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap 'Staring At The End'– Student Becomes Tea
“I don’t like questions without answers,” Herman (Geena Davis) declares in a voiceover kicking off “Grey’s Anatomy’s” thirteenth episode.

It’s fair to say ambiguity is Herman’s enemy especially when packaged as an inoperable tumor living in her head. But, unlike Arizona who is doggedly trying to find a life-saving cure to preserve her future, Herman’s more interested in creating a lasting legacy.

In doing so, she takes on every in vitro surgical procedure within the Tri-State area to teach Arizona. Except for Bailey’s patient. Given Herman’s limited life span she’s pretty selective about...
