Scene Of The Week - August 30, 2015 + POLL

Share on Reddit

A weekly feature in which we're trying to find the most compelling, best acted, written, directed and just generally great, memorable scenes that we've seen in past seven days on TV.

DARK MATTER, "Episode Thirteen", August 28, 2015, Actors: Roger Cross and more, The Scene: The final scene
Justyna K:
In the end it was the people we suspected the least that turned out to be responsible for everything that happened. Sort of predictable in a way as it was the most shocking and clever option to go with. I'm sure I'm not the only one with a million question after this intense finale, impatiently waiting for news about the show's renewal. Talk about a cliffhanger. Time to start the theories about all the possible reasons why Six would betray his crew like that. Was he lying all this time? Was he undercover? Did he break after all the death and destruction that recently happened? Was that even Six or someone else looking exactly like him? I love how many options we have to explore and can't wait to see what's next. Kudos to all the cast & crew. Brilliant work. Fingers crossed for season 2!

FEAR THE WALKING DEAD, "Pilot", August 23, 2015, Actors: Frank Dillane, Kim Dickens and more, The Scene: The ending scene
Nirat Anop:
I really liked this scene, the music and emotion was great. The son breaking down in his mother's arms was especially poignant. Frank Dillane was especially wonderful throughout the episode. I also liked how intrigued Travis and Madison were by this guy who wouldn't die, it speaks volumes to humanity and how curious we are regardless of the consequences. Can't wait to see where it goes from here.

SUITS, "Faith", August 26, 2015, Actors: Patrick J. Adams and more, The Scenes: Mike resigns & Dr. Paula and Donna meet
Laura Markus:
I loved other scenes, especially Mike finding the Curious George book his Grammy left in the Church, and some of the flashbacks with Harvey, Mike, and Jessica. To be honest, the scene with Donna and Paula was my least favourite of the night. I also LOVED the scene with Jessica getting rattled after Louis told her he can't vote for her. So many great scenes in the mid-season finale, but it HAS TO be the scene in Harvey's office where Mike resigns. 5A has been all about the theme of family, and how all these relationships in Pearson Specter Litt are solidified by the fact that there is undying loyalty between everyone. This entire show was founded on the principle that Harvey saw something in Mike that day he interviewed him, and took him on even though he didn't have a law degree. Well, in this scene, he resigned to Harvey, not knowing that Harvey was stepping down from the firm too. But Mike reassured Harvey that he gave him his dream, and also a family that he never had before. Harvey let him know that Mike wasn't the only one who got family from their deal. They hugged, and Harvey watched Mike leave, again, ignorant to the fact that Mike was about to be arrested. Nonetheless, that scene was written and directed beautifully, the emotions and tears in Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams's eyes was stellar. And it all lead up to a hug I have been waiting 5 years for. It was immensely satisfying, although destroying my heart in the process.
Jimmy Ryan: The Suits midseason finale was a mighty fine piece of television. There were a good dozen scenes that I could have picked for my Scene of the Week, but I'd have to give it to the scene between Dr. Paula and Donna. This was completely unexpected but absolutely made the episode. We saw two women who have their own spells cast on Harvey in beautiful harmony as opposed to one trying to win over the other. Fantastic stuff by the writers and cast. I hope we're treated to more in 2016. Also picked by Ben L

TEEN WOLF, "Status Asthmaticus", August 24, 2015, Actors: Melissa Ponzio, Tyler Posey, The Scene: Melissa saves Scott
Justyna K:
It was the summer finale and to be honest, I'm still not quite sure how I feel about season 5A. There were many brilliant scenes and actors' performances that I loved, yet its painful and tragic ending makes it all... not my first choice when it comes to the re-watch. No matter how bad things get, it's always better when our heroes are on the same side. Even if they lose, them staying together makes all the difference in the world. Sadly we end the summer run with all the bonds and relationships breaking, and good people hurt or dying with no one there to save them. There is one exception, however, which is probably why it makes my Scene of The Week, when Melissa saves Scott. At least these two are still okay and Melissa refuses to believe her son died and brings him back despite the odds. Her powerful rescue is just another reason on a long list why her character is such a brilliant and unique one. Melissa really won this week's episode for me. And Stiles - as his fight with Theo is an automatic win. Now I can't wait to see the pack back together. Because the truth is, they're more than just a pack, it's not about the leader and the people following him, it's about friendship and family. That's what always made them stronger and I look forward to seeing Scott, Stiles and everyone else back. And someone please save the Sheriff!

THE WHISPERS, "Traveller in the Dark", August 24, 2015, Actors: Barry Sloane, Kylie Rogers, The Scene: Wes saves Minx
Justyna K:
It seems that for the first time, since the beginning of the show, we finally got to see a different side of Minx. Not just the clever, sometimes even scary teenager, but also terrified and broken little girl. The one thing she wanted, the reason she was so willing to help Drill was always the fact that she wanted her parents, her family back together. Sadly it didn't last and since Lena's death things only got worse for Minx. She's smart, she knew no matter what she said, her words would never be enough to convince people she's not the one they're looking for. The one thing I was truly missing in the show was the relationship between Wes and his daughter, so I was really glad to see their bond more clearly in the last two episodes. And this week, Wes' desperate attempts to save his little girl made such a powerful impression on me. Barry Sloane did a wonderful work in the episode and so did Kylie Rogers. I absolutely loved the final minutes where Wes saved Minx just in time and we got to see what they were like years ago. It was such a beautiful memory and wonderfully done ending. Kudos!
