'The Walking Dead' Recap: The 10 Most Badass Moments from 'Strangers'

'The Walking Dead' Recap: The 10 Most Badass Moments from 'Stran
“Strangers” was a much quieter episode than the season 5 premiere, but that didn’t make it any less bonkers. In fact, the quiet moments only made every moment more tension-filled. Every time the characters slow-mo walked through the covered woods, there was an ominous feeling following them with each step. As Season 4 taught us, there’s no safety, not even for a minute. And last week’s episode left a couple of hanging threads that come back to haunt our survivors in a major way.

Here are 10 of the most badass moments from “Strangers:”

Reunion Conversations and Forgiveness

7 Bold Predictions For Season 5 Of 'The Walking Dead'
After four seasons of rivalries, tension, shocking death, and tons of reanimated dead people wandering around, it’s still a wonder that The Walking Dead can still manage to surprise us week after week. Throughout the haitus many viewers believed that our protagonists would be stuck in Terminus for ages, with the much wanted reunions unbearably delayed. But the season opener “No Sanctuary” exceeded all expectations by putting a season’s worth of activity in one episode.

Will the 5th season continue to surprise us with left-field revelations and gut-wrenching twists? Here are a few bold pred...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Dead Drop' - The Man Behind The Curtain

October 19th, 2014 9:15am EDT
'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Dead Drop' - The Ma
The sophomore (sort of) outing of Transporter: The Series sends Frank Stateside to deal with a figure from his past who, naturally, needs his old acquaintance to save the day. You may have heard this plot before, but when it includes our first look behind the curtain at what shaped Frank Martin, plus some entertaining setpieces along the way, one can't seriously argue with traversing some familiar territory.

There's a street race going on in Philadelphia, and not even a phone call from Dieter can derail Frank's best Fast & Furious impression. But of course, this isn't just a joyride; there...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Trojan Horsepower'
Buckle up, because we've just found your new Saturday night obsession. Jumping off from the film trilogy, Transporter: The Series finally makes its American TV debut two years after its premiere - and with speed, style, entertaining stunts and a sterling performance from Chris Vance, it's absolutely worth the wait.

For those of you who haven't seen the movies, a quick primer: former SAS and Special Forces operative Frank Martin (Jason Statham in the films, now succeeded by Vance) is a freelance "transporter" who has only three rules: never change the deal, don't use any names, and never op...

Survive and Vance: Chris Vance Drives 'Transporter: The Series'

October 16th, 2014 12:10pm EDT
Chris Vance
Chris Vance has been hiding in plain sight. The English actor impresses no matter what role you hand him. He was the enigmatic yet still kind of likeable James Whistler on Prison Break. The entertaining antagonist Mason Gilroy in five episodes of Burn Notice. The charming and often inspiring Dr. Jack Gallagher on Mental. The "of course she fell for him" Casey Jones in Rizzoli & Isles. Even when he was a really bad guy on Dexter, he was still worth watching. And yet, most TV viewers probably can't tell you his name.

That's about to change. Vance has taken on his biggest role yet, and he's t...

‘Law & Order SVU’ Season 16 Episode 4 Recap: ‘Holden’s Manifesto’

October 16th, 2014 9:15am EDT
Law & Order SVU
I know how the SVU writers spent their summer vacations; thumbing through newspapers for the most heinous sexual crimes that would make up season 16. We’re already four episodes deep into the season and I already want to draw up a petition removing the “no actual person is represented “disclaimer shown at the beginning of each episode.

Yet, if the well is full they might as well draw from it. In “Holden’s Manifesto” we’re introduced to Holden, a narcissistic documentarian with a penchant for getting revenge on all his unrequited loves. If you’ve recently been struck by déjà vu, it’s becaus...

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap: Rundown On 'Massacres And Matinees'

October 16th, 2014 8:21am EDT
American Horror Story: Freak Show
American Horror Story has never excelled at creating strong plots and characters with coherent motivations. But the one thing it has always done well is embracing its campiness. The episodes that take themselves too seriously are often the least successful. Freak Show is still in that stage of taking itself seriously, but “Massacres and Matinees” also managed to be one of the most ridiculous and funny episodes in the show’s history. Here’s a rundown of the episode:

New Characters Worth Remembering

“Massacres and Matinees” saw the introduction of two new performers in the Freak Show:

'Arrow' Season 3 Episode 2 Recap: 10 Insane Moments from 'Sara'

October 16th, 2014 8:03am EDT
Arrow
Boy, that was a depressing hour, huh?

That tends to be the case when a show kills off a major character- you've got to take a little time off and say goodbye. Closure is as important with our fake TV superheroes as it is in real life.

Ok, have we gotten far enough in this recap that the little preview on the front page won't show the MASSIVE spoilers from last week? Yes? Cool.

In that case, "Sara" is one long hour of goodbye for the Canary. So long, Sara. You came back from the dead once, but now you're riddled with arrow holes and buried underground. Probably not coming back from that ...
