Scene Of The Week - March 12, 2017 + POLL

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.

BATES MOTEL, "Bad Blood", March 6, 2017, Actors: Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Ryan Hurst, The Scene: Chick, Norman and "Mother" have dinner together
Darth Locke:
Chick dines with Norman & "Mother". Chick has become this insanely great character over the past couple of seasons, leading him to be this kind of intriguing meta centerpiece for, at least, the first part of the final season. I love this scene, because it was the first time we see Chick try and talk to Norman and Mother at the same time, almost forcing Norman to deal with the actual facts of the situation, as Chick doesn't hear Mother at first! So comical, absurd, but yet a little intense!
Saloni: Chick, Norman, and "Mother" all sitting for dinner. What a terrific scene, especially when Norma says something and obviously Chick can't hear. Intense. Also picked by DarkUFO

BIG LITTLE LIES, "Living the Dream", March 5, 2017, Actors: Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Iain Armitage and more, The Scenes: Madeline cries in her car & Celeste and Perry speak to a counselor & Ziggy gets hostile in front of Madeline
Madeline crying in her car after Jane told her the Ziggy conception story. Throughout the 3 hours of BLL, Reese simply amazed me and made me remember why I love her so much. This simple raw moment of true pain that Jane's story provoked in Madeline just felt refreshing. It is often undermined how much the outer world and other people's problems affect us and this simple scene just had so much power and pain, truly exceptional.
Mark: Celeste and Perry speak to a counselor. Even though Perry was the one mainly talking throughout the scene, Celeste said so much more with her subtle and wide range of reactions to Perry's words. Nicole was compelling to watch and conveyed so much emotion without saying a word.
Darth Locke: Ziggy gets hostile in front of Madeline. Iain Armitage just has some great acting chops for his age, reminding me of Macaulay Culkin's performance in The Good Son! I'm definitely intrigued with learning who exactly Ziggy's father is and who out of this great cast doesn't make it!

BLACK SAILS, "XXXIV.", March 5, 2017, Actors: Hannah New and more, The Scene: Eleanor's death
I felt Eleanor's death this week was handled really well. It was hard to watch and although I haven't always been a fan of the character it was a good, emotionally powerful ending to her storyline - especially with the fact that she had essentially come full-circle in regards to Flint beforehand.

IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, "Dennis' Double Life", March 8, 2017, Actors: Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, The Scene: Mac recreates his and Dennis' old apartment
Mac recreates his and Dennis' old apartment exactly the way it was before. Ah, well, despite my disappointment at this finale, and this scene in general for reasons I will get to, this was still the best moment of the episode. I don't really like what they're doing with Mac; it has been evident since the pilot that he has been interested in Dennis more than just platonically. And now that he's out of the closet he can be open with his feelings, right? Well, apparently, not as open as we would like to think. After winning a bet he gets to be in charge of rebuilding the apartment he shared with Dennis. And he chose to make it exactly the way it was before. Dennis is completely unfazed, even angry about this decision, citing that he, "hates it". Oh, come on, Sunny. Dennis Reynolds is the kind of person who hates change of most kinds, especially in large doses and of those things that belong to him. The fact that Mac rebuilt his apartment back to the way it was before is EXACTLY the kind of thing that Dennis would love, and that should've kickstarted the conversation and later obvious flirting on Mac's part. I haven't even gotten to what Mac did to Dennis' bedroom yet because I am so confused and ashamed. He turned it into his gym - with a lovely reappearance from the Ass Pounder 4000 - getting rid of everything in the room except the bike. Why would he do this? Well, he was expecting Dennis to sleep in the same bed as him, of course. Poor Mac. I honestly feel bad for the guy. Dennis was so blinded by... whatever the f**k that he couldn't see that Mac was literally pouring his heart out to him in this episode. Suggesting they be a couple, sleep together forever, even going so far as to saying they could raise the baby together Side note: the actress who played the floozy was great. But, unfortunately, they went the completely opposite route for whatever reason, and it wasn't satisfying in the slightest. With news of this "extended hiatus", I hope the writers (and RCG especially) have time to think things over and see where they went wrong.

LEGION, "Chapter 5", March 8, 2017, Actors: Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza and more, The Scenes: The team arrives at Division 3 & Lenny emerges from the wall to interrogate Amy
Darth Locke: Lenny emerges from the wall in David's and Amy's childhood home to interrogate Amy. Again, there were a lot of scenes I could have easily picked in this episode, but I thought the acting job between Aubrey Plaza and Katie Aselton was just too good not to pick them!
Milo: The team arriving at Division 3 to see all the guards dead was played off fantastically. The choice of music was awesome too.
DarkUFO: The team arrives at Division 3 to see all the guards dead and half buried in concrete.
Kollin: The team arrives at Division 3 to see all the dead guards. The visuals, the music, everything made this scene so haunting.

LETHAL WEAPON, "A Problem Like Maria", March 8, 2017, Actors: Clayne Crawford, Hilarie Burton, The Scene: Riggs finds out the truth about Miranda's death
Justyna K:
For the first time since Miranda's death Riggs made a real step forward, letting himself to feel happy, even for a little while, and that's precisely where he is confronted with the heartbreaking truth. The fact that Miranda's death wasn't just an accident, a random painful twist of fate that Martin has been struggling to accept from the beginning of the show. Knowing the movies I expected this reveal, especially after the reference made a few episodes ago, but this quiet and powerful moment still proved to be truly moving to watch. Earlier during the hour Palmer sees an old photo of Miranda which leads her to remember Riggs' wife from the cartel's hit list she once encountered in her investigation. I'm glad she decided to tell Martin the truth as soon as she knew and she did in the most considerate and calm way she possibly could. Hilarie Burton does a great job in delivering the devastating message. Palmer understands what this news means to Martin and to their relationship but she knows how important it is for him to find out. And Riggs' reaction, the way he quietly breaks down inside, sitting still, barely able to move or say anything. His world is crashing down, again, when he's hit with the possibility that Miranda's death wasn't just an accident but could be a result of something he did, an act of revenge. Knowing that there's someone out there who went after his beloved wife and their unborn child is simply too much and though he does his best to stay strong he can't hold back the tears when he sees the file brought to him by Palmer. Clayne Crawford continues to shine in his role, everything that Riggs is going through, he portrays perfectly with his body language, facial expressions, gestures and all the little things he does to make the viewers realize all the emotions Martin feels in this moment. Kudos to the cast & crew for yet another wonderful episode of this great show! Can't believe it's time for the season finale already.

ONCE UPON A TIME, "Tougher Than the Rest", March 5, 2017, Actors: Mckenna Grace, Rustin Gresiuk, The Scene: A kind stranger stops Emma from burning 'The Ugly Duckling' book
A kind stranger (later revealed to be August) stops Emma from burning 'The Ugly Duckling' book and helps her turn her life around by explaining the meaning of the story to her - That even the ugliest of creatures can turn into a beautiful swan. I also loved that this scene finally gave us the answer regarding where Emma got the surname 'Swan' from.

SUPERGIRL, "Exodus", March 6, 2017, Actors: Melissa Benoist, Chyler Leigh, The Scene: Kara stops the out of control spaceship
Justyna K:
Such an incredible episode and even more memorable scene. The moment I watched it I absolutely knew it's one of the best that the show has ever done. Perfectly acted by the wonderful Melissa Benoist and Chyler Leigh, it highlighted the strongest and most beautifully done bond and relationship on the show. The heartfelt moments Kara and Alex so often shared were one of the main reasons why I started loving the show back in season one. Every single time the show focused on these two characters there was so much heart in the story that it was impossible to turn away. Recently I've found myself truly missing these interactions on the series so it made this scene even more powerful for me. When the spaceship takes off with trapped aliens and Alex on board, Kara and her friends at the DEO look for a way to stop it before it's lost on the other side of the universe. It proves to be almost an impossible task when it turns out there's not much that can be done unless Kara slows down the ship first. And even with her incredible strength, Supergirl is struggling to hold on until Alex offers her sister her absolute trust and support from behind the glass that separates them. Despite the circumstances, Alex isn't scared or doubtful, she just knows that Kara is strong enough to save everyone and makes sure to let her sister know that. It's heartwarming to watch the love between these two and quite horrific to see and hear Kara's screams as she fights with all her strength to keep the ship on Earth. Not many words are needed in such a moment. Only the incredible performance by the two talented actresses, the beautiful music and really well done effects. Kudos to cast & crew for their wonderful work on this scene and the episode. As much as I adore all the other characters, I hope to see more of such powerful moments with Danvers sisters in the future.
Donna: Kara tries in vain to stop the alien ship going into orbit. A few words of encouragement from her sister and the hand touching the glass and Kara reaches deep inside herself and stops it. The Danvers sisters, the true heart of Supergirl.
DJRiter: Kara desperately trying to slow down the alien spaceship to prevent it from space warping the aliens and most importantly her sister across the universe. Beautifully staged and acted this will become the iconic Danvers sisters moment of the series. Chyler Leigh and Melissa Benoist again showed they're one of, if not the best, acting duo on TV today. With minimal dialogue, brilliantly muted by the spaceship window between them, they sold the scene with their faces and body language. Alex, placing her hand on window between them, showing her unwavering faith that her sister would save her; and Kara's primal screams and fearful eyes afraid she might fail the sister she loves. Add Blake Neely's soaring score and you have a masterful scene.
Samantha: This episode felt like a welcome return to form with the Danvers sisters at the heart of the action, and I felt as exhausted as Kara did just watching. They may have their disagreements but the Danvers sisters never stop loving, believing and fighting for each other and scenes like this are why I stay watching.
Aimee: Supergirl stops the spaceship Alex is trapped in. Some scenes you watch and as you’re watching it you know you’re witnessing something exceptionally extraordinary. This was one of those scenes. The sisterly bond between Alex and Kara has been strained for the past few episodes, but per usual Danvers sisters fashion when it counts they can put aside everything else and unconditionally be there for each other. Between the powerful musical score and the intense acting by Chyler Leigh and Melissa Benoist, this is a scene that easily takes the spot as the best scene of the series. Alex has always believed in her sister and is Kara’s biggest champion. She knew that Kara could stop the ship, but she needed Kara to believe in it herself. By putting her hand up and making that connection she let her sister know that she believed in her and gave her the strength to find the power within to stop the ship. It was certainly one of the most powerful scenes of the series. Phenomenal acting, brilliant writing, beautiful cinematography and a haunting musical score combined to bring to life an exceptional scene.

SUPERNATURAL, "Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell", March 9, 2016, Actors: Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, The Scene: Dean loves "Lucille"
Funniest scene of the week goes to Dean as he enters the bunker with a barb wired bat telling Sam how Dad (portrayed by Jeffrey Dean Morgan aka Negan in The Walking Dead) loved this bat. No show does meta like Supernatural does, that's for darn sure. Too funny.

THE AMERICANS, "Amber Waves", March 7, 2017, Actors: Keri Russell, Ivan Mok and more, The Scenes: Tuan goes home & Elizabeth kills Hans
The upbeat music that played as Tuan was making friends with Pasha, originally seeming like a normal day - and then Tuan goes home to find out that his parents are Elizabeth and Phillip. It was a perfect WTF moment that really worked, and was a great way to start Season 5.
DarkUFO: Elizabeth kills Hans without hesitation.

THE FLASH, "The Wrath of Savitar", March 7, 2017, Actors: Candice Patton, Jesse L. Martin, Violett Beane and more, The Scene: The group mourns Wally getting trapped in the speed force
This season of The Flash is an up and down ride to say at least so this emotional and heartfelt moment was something the show really needed. The show set the perfect mood, creating a feeling of real loss. Violett Beane's tears felt so real.

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, "I Was Feeling Epic", March 10, 2017, Actors: Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and more, The Scenes: The ending sequence & Damon compels Stefan to leave & Stefan reunites with Lexi
Justyna K:
Here we are, at the last page of the book, we might say. The story that meant so much to so many people I've met has come to an end and I'm happy to say I think they did alright there. In a show with immortal beings, the death and destruction, the pain and loss at the centre of the attention, they managed to find the best balance possible and though a little rushed the characters were able to find peace when it seemed almost impossible to reach. There are always things that could be done differently but I'm saying goodbye to the show on a good note and that's truly the best I could hope for. In the end, the two brothers, who started the series pretty much hating each other, found their way back to the family they once were, both believing the other is a better one, which I honestly think is their way of showing love they both struggled with during the series. There were quite a few moments I genuinely loved in this finale (like Damon and Stefan's last argument, Stefan finding peace and Lexi after death, Damon and Caroline saying their goodbyes to Stefan) but I decided to choose the ending sequence. Seeing so many characters back, both alive and dead, still there to watch over their loved ones was a beautiful and emotional moment. There was a feeling that they're all gonna be okay in the end, that they found the things to live for and have people waiting for them after death. And the last two parts, with Elena reuniting with her long lost family and Damon, so worried but motivated by the concern he might never see his brother again, finds him after a happy life and they both finally are at peace, together. Kudos to cast & crew for this beautifully done ending to such a memorable series. I will surely miss it and wish all who made it the best! Thank you.
Doug: The entire ending heaven sequence! To see Elena and Damon happy together in life and the after life was amazing. Plus, to see Elena reunited with her parents, who she was mourning in the Pilot, was a perfect full circle moment.
Marko: Stefan and Damon arguing in the tombs and Damon compelling Stefan. And while I am a sucker for a great romance, Defan moments were the core of the Vampire Diaries for me. Julie Plec wrote a masterful dialogue which was executed to perfection by the two amazing actors who gave life to the characters. The scene brought me to tears and they haven't stopped rolling till the hour closed half an hour later.
Saloni: Honestly, picking just one is very difficult because I absolutely LOVED the series finale. However, I'm going to choose Stefan reuniting with Lexi and both of them finding peace together in their afterlife! Beautiful. HM to scenes already picked by others like the ending montage and Defan scenes in the tomb.

THIS IS US, "What Now?", March 7, 2017, Actors: Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, The Scene: Randall forgives Rebecca
Randall forgives Rebecca for hiding William from him. THIS. BLOODY. SHOW. I very rarely get emotional during TV Shows but this show makes me ugly cry every single week. This was the scene which set me off this week. After Rebecca poured her heart out to Randall, I actually felt bad for her. I could completely understand where she was coming from with the decisions that she made. I could tell that she felt horrible for cutting their time together the moment that her and Miguel arrived for the memorial. I'm so glad that Randall understood as well and forgave her.
