If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/2/19

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Phoebe’s Choice

With only two episodes to sew up the whole story, Swamp Thing found himself in a dire situation to start last week’s penultimate episode. He was held captive by Dr. Jason Woodrue, who was dissecting him in a makeshift portable lab. Woodrue developed a theory that the swamp creature was not Alec Holland, as we’ve believed all season, but a plant that was manifesting as a humanoid that believes they’re Holland. Daniel Cassidy/The Blue Devil woke up in a hospital, confronted by the demonic deal broker who cursed him with his powers. A vision of the future was shared, showing Abby & Liz Tremayne getting slaughtered by mercenaries in a mystery location.

IRL, Abby & Liz went to Woodrue’s house to try to track his location. They spoke with his increasingly insane wife. In the lab, Woodrue tore Swamp Thing’s organs out one by one, despite the fact he was clearly alive. Avery Sunderland recovered with Woodrue’s help and moved directly to having his wife forcibly admitted to an insane asylum. Cassidy accepted his fate, and the power of the Blue Devil possessed him. Abby & Liz used the lead they got from the mad wife and sneaked into the remote, mobile medical lab Woodrue had been using. The gals stopped just short of a room they heard the mercenaries in, when The Blue Devil appeared! Using his demonic powers of electricity and blue flames, he totally killed the shit out of all of them.

That allowed the gals to free Swamp Thing, who wished to return to the swamp to see if Woodrue’s theory was true. Woodrue meanwhile returned home just in time to find his wife dying of an overdose. Abby followed the creature into the swamp where, shockingly, they actually found the body of dead human scientist Alec Holland, proving that Swamp Thing is not Alec!

Now, this show got canceled after one week on the air. It was not given a chance because the state of North Carolina chintz’d out on the tax breaks they had initially offered. The show’s creator did however make a point to tell us to stick around for the post credits for a tease of future content. So maybe the character will see life on a future show? I hope so, because this show has been a great ride, even after being cut down to 10 episodes instead of the originally planned 13.

On today’s episode, “Loose Ends,” The swamp fights back in the season finale. Still reeling with the revelation of the truth behind his existence, Swamp Thing goes on the offensive against Ellery’s mercenary team hunting him. Meanwhile, Abby comes up against Jason Woodrue, who’s crossed the line to save his wife’s life. And as Liz tries to help Dan Cassidy escape the curse of the Blue Devil and leave Marais once and for all, Avery Sunderland attempts to find a resolution to his relationship with Lucilia and Matt Cable.

Don’t miss the finale this morning on DCU at 9AM/8AMc.

I’ll also be tuning in for the 2-hour season finale to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
