Scene Of The Week - December 10, 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.

AGENTS OF SHIELD, "A Life Spent", December 8, 2017, Actors: Elizabeth Henstridge, Ciara Bravo, Dominic Rains and more, The Scene: The Ceremony
It's been a great beginning of the season. The new reality of our heroes is both fascinating and disturbing to watch. While Coulson and the others experience the brutal conditions in which people have to live and work in this grim version of the future, it's Jemma's story that continues to be the darkest part of the new world. I'm so glad that the writers keep giving the wonderful Elizabeth Henstridge an opportunity to shine on the show because she's proved herself to be one of their biggest strengths. While I very much feel the absence of Fitz, it's probably a good thing he doesn't have to see Jemma's current situation. The most memorable part of the episode for me were the interactions between Simmons and Abby and "the ceremony" that was meant to show the capabilities of these two and give answer to the question whether Jemma can help Abby control her powers. The realization about what sort of entertainment Kree enjoy was painful. Using the Inhumans and their powers to earn respect and the right price is revolting. Jemma's reactions said it all perfectly. As much as I was rooting for Abby in that brutal fight and was glad to see her taking control of "the space between the stars", her face when she was forced to kill her opponent was hard to watch. Her belief that Kree are actually helping people and she's just not worthy gave Jemma a new understanding of this world and surely bigger motivation to change it. Kudos to cast & crew for another powerful hour. Can't wait to see what's next.

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, "99", December 5, 2017, Actors: Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Andre Braugher and more, The Scenes: Captain Holt admits the truth & Rosa tells Boyle she's bi
There's so many things to love about this episode. But I think my favorite part of it is when Jake gets Captain Holt to admit the reason why he's sabotaging the chance to get his dream job. I loved how much Jake cared about Holt's interview and how hard he tried to make it happen. The relationship between these two is one of my favorite things about the show and such an important part of it. It's always fun to see when they figure out something about each other and in this case, everyone's reactions to Holt admitting to all the steps of his plan were perfect. The whole reveal takes an unexpected turn when Captain finally tells the team about the deal he made with a criminal to get Jake and Rosa out of jail and he admits that he's worried things might get worse if he becomes the Commissioner. Jake's response ("I love you, Dad/Captain") was absolutely heartwarming. And everyone promising to have Captain's back and share the responsibility for his choice is just another proof why this show and this wonderful family work so well. The first lesson Holt was trying to teach Jake back in the pilot, about being the team, is beautifully displayed in this 99th episode of the series. Here's to many more hours of this fantastic comedy!
Samantha: Rosa tells Boyle she's bi. This has been something that many including myself had been hoping would happen since the first season and now that it's actually a reality? It's honestly wonderful. What I like is how there wasn't a big deal made out of it. Boyle was just being his excited self wanting to know who Rosa was dating, he happened to hear a woman's voice and that forced Rosa to admit she was dating a woman and is bisexual. Often on TV shows you will hear a person say they're dating a member of the same sex and they'll automatically be put into the box of being gay or lesbian. But Brooklyn Nine-Nine made its position very clear when Rosa admitted she was bisexual. It's an extremely brave move because whilst being gay and lesbian is a bit more accepted in the land of TV than it was say 5 or 10 years ago? Being bisexual isn't as widely accepted. It's something that the audience may suspect about a character and there may be occasionally references, but it is rare at least in the shows I've watched for a character to actually say they're bisexual, and especially so casually. Which is why I love Brooklyn Nine-Nine. As soon as Rosa told Boyle, he was perfectly fine with it, she refused to say anymore and Boyle is just bursting with happiness that Rosa is happy. Which shows how far they've come from s1 & s2. Also picked by Laura
Patrycja: Rosa reveals to Boyle that she’s bisexual.
Saloni: Captain Holt finally tells everyone about his deal with Seamus Murphy! I was wondering when they would get to this point. I loved when Jake and Rosa realized what Holt had done for them, and Jake called him "Dad/Captain." Plus, the whole 99 crew tells Holt they've got his back. It was all really sweet and really funny.

GOOD BEHAVIOR, "Stay Beautiful", December 3, 2017, Actors: Juan Diego Botto, Michelle Dockery, Cristobal Tapia Montt, The Scene: Javier finds Carlos dead and Letty lost in the woods
Ending with Javier finding Carlos dead and Letty lost in the woods. A lot of scenes have been making me cry on my Good Behavior catch-up but this ending? With that cover of 'Wicked Games'? I don't think I have any tears left to cry. It was really so sad for Carlos because he was essentially trying to prove to Javier and himself that he's not a wimp. Javier told Carlos he believed in him but actions unfortunately speak louder than words, and Carlos paid for that with his life. Letty ending up all alone and lost in the woods is completely symbolic of her story over the shows' 2 seasons. She's used to being in control, using people as means to an end and not getting close because she thinks she's damaged and brings nothing but disaster to people's lives. And having cut off Javier and gone off to be a disaster on her own, she finds herself in a situation where she desperately needs help and no one is there.
Laura B: Javier comes back to find Teo gone and Carlos dead. Wow, this episode was trippy and psychologically nuts! I don't even know if Letty's experience really happened (or how much of it - I find the character named Dave suspicious thanks to LOST) and that crazy stuff that was going on with Javier helping some guy kill his wife, where the debates and understandings they had about each other, made you question who was the bad one and/or why it had to come down to this? Obviously though it was reflection of Letty and Javier - a possible future ghost, but for me, the thing that really topped it off was Javier thinking it was a good idea to either bring Teo back to his new house (a house he wanted Letty to come live with him in) and/or leaving anyone alone with Teo, granted I almost thought Carlos would have killed Teo or let him escape and this other way! Mind blown. Can't wait to see how this is all going to progress from here!

MR. ROBOT, "eps3.8_stage3.torrent", December 6, 2017, Actors: Carly Chaikin, Grace Gummer
The Scene: Darlene seduces Dom at a bar
Darlene seduces Dom at a bar, later leading to sex, but Darlene's only motive was to get Dom's FBI badge.

OUTLANDER, "The Bakra", December 3, 2017, Actors: Lotte Verbeek, Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, David Berry, The Scenes: Claire, Lord John Grey and Jamie converse & The return of Geillis
Laura B:
Like so many times, this is one of those episodes that had A LOT of great scenes from the shock value of another returning character, to Claire wanting to save a slave, to even an omniscient fortune telling scene! But I chose this one, because it was one of those lighter moments of awkwardness that could somehow be deeply felt by the audience without the characters having to say very much. Plus, I just love Lord John - he makes everything so much more pleasurable just by being him!
Marine: The cold open showing the return of Geillis, pretty badass!

PEAKY BLINDERS, "Dangerous", December 6, 2017, Actors: Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Aidan Gillen, The Scene: Tommy, Alfie and Aberama Gold meet
This was such a great scene as we got to witness Tom Hardy's triumphant return to the show in style. His character always has the best lines and the scenery chewing was fantastic. When you combine that with the already great cast of Cillian Murphy and Aidan Gillen in the same room taking part in what is essentially a 1920s version of a pre-boxing match press conference, you know you're going to get fantastic results.

RUNAWAYS, "Kingdom". December 5, 2017, Actors: Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner and more, The Scene: The gang uses their powers for the first time
Technically it's not using their powers for the first time as we have seen over the first 4 episodes them touching onto them, but it is the first time they've used their powers to fight and it was every bit as magnificent as I hoped. From Gert's comment on Karolina being beautiful and glowing, to Molly lifting the car, Nico using the Staff to stop the bullets and Chase using the fistigons. It was a fantastic scene and I hope we get more like this in the future.

SPEECHLESS, "S-t-Star W-Wars", December 6, 2017, Actors: Mason Cook, Micah Fowler, Cedric Yarbrough, Marin Hinkle, The Scenes: JJ tells Ray he likes spending time with him & Kenneth and Dr. Miller have fun at the school after hours
Kenneth and Dr. Miller have fun at the school after hours and you can see they have a real connection as they lay on the gym floor, looking up at a balloon release on the ceiling, Dr. Miller laments that there has never been a reason to release the balloons. Kenneth is the friend she so desperately longs for.
Marko: JJ tells Ray he likes spending time with him

SUPERGIRL, "Reign", December 4, 2017, Actors: Melissa Benoist, Odette Annable and more, The Scene: Reign vs. Supergirl
What a fight it was! Excellent work by the actresses, the stunt team and the ones responsible for all the special effects. Not only the battle served as a powerful introduction of Supergirl's strongest enemy yet - Reign, but it was also an important milestone for Kara. She has lost people before but she could always depend on her powers and had faith that she will succeed. The moment when she sees her own blood and realizes she's already lost, changes everything. Watching the hero bleed and fall, when you always expect him or her to be fine and win the fight, makes it quite a memorable moment to experience. It's even more unique, since the villain isn't just a random evil or someone looking for revenge. Reign is the alter ego of Kara's friend. And Samantha is not aware of her actions. She's not in control. With such strong beginning of the conflict between Supergirl and Reign, it makes me very excited to see what's going to happen next. Also picked by Marko
DJRiter: The entire Supergirl/Reign battle was epic in both stunt work and effects. I'm loving this storyline and have been so impressed with Odette Annable's performance. She's been so sympathetic as Sam and so deliciously evil as Reign, she's become one of the three best actresses on the show.
Donna: Crashing the office party while fighting Reign. Rocking around the Christmas tree playing in the background and they certainly rocked the party.

SUPERSTORE, "Christmas Eve", December 5, 2017, Actors: America Ferrera, Lauren Ash, Nichole Bloom, The Scene: Dina, Amy and Cheyenne use electric shopping carts
Dina, Amy and Cheyenne use electric shopping carts to go to Adam’s girlfriend’s house because they are too drunk to drive. Hilarious!

THE CROWN, "A Company of Men", December 8, 2017, Actors: Matt Smith and more, The Scene: Philip is interviewed by an Australian Reporter
Laura B:
There's always a lot to be said for actress Claire Foy's portrayal as Queen Elisabeth II, but this was one of the first times I saw something more complex from Matt Smith's Prince Philip. Even though it's easy to say that Philip had this unpleasant interview coming, given all of his side-lining, including thinking he might have a fling with this young reporter, the reality is that he is a person with a bit of tragic upbringing - an upbringing that I think he keeps trying to escape paving the way to his falandering ways. The flashbacks interwoven into the scene, as the reporter tells us the history while also questioning Philip's integrity (and often not publicly shared opinions on various subjects) was still heartbreaking to watch. It made the character/historic figure much more understandable despite the pain his behavior often causes towards Elizabeth.

THE FLASH, "Don't Run", December 5, 2017, Actors: Grant Gustin, Kendrick Sampson and more, The Scene: Barry walks into his loft and finds DeVoe's body
Knowing he is being set up for a murder he didn't commit, Barry gets ready to run. He pauses for a moment, looks at a photo of him and Iris and decides to give himself up instead. Grant Gustin killed this scene with just two words, "Don't run". In this one line Barry's maturity as a man and as a hero is revealed. Up to that point, he had been running his whole life, figuratively and with his powers, literally. The shot of the scene was pretty kick ass too - the slow motion of Barry with electricity coursing through his body as he makes his decision was shot brilliantly.

THE GIFTED, "outfoX", December 4, 2017, Actors: Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White and more, The Scene: Cliffhanger ending
The cliffhanger with Lauren and Andy being surrounded by Jace and his soldiers was fantastic, and really played up the emotional stakes especially with having Reed and Caitlin watch on helpless, unable to do anything. The show has been on fire lately and it managed to put everything in place for what will no doubt be an exciting winter finale for sure.

THE GOLDBERGS, "Parents Just Don't Understand", December 6, 2017, Actors: Jeff Garlin, Sean Giambrone, Troy Gentile and more, The Scene: A knock off video of "Parents Just Don't Understand"
Adam and Barry make a knock off video of "Parents Just Don't Understand" and Murray is upset about how he is portrayed in it. He goes into a raging, expletive-filled rant in front of their friends and the looks on the kids' faces is priceless.

THE GOOD DOCTOR, "Sacrifice", December 4, 2017, Actors: Freddie Highmore, Richard Schiff
The Scene: The fight between Aaron and Shaun escalates (picked by Marko and Laura)

THE MIDDLE, "The 200th", December 5, 2017, Actors: Neil Flynn, Patricia Heaton and more, The Scene: Mike Heck's speech
Mike Heck gives an emotional speech on the 200th episode. Orson is being celebrated as the 200th most livable city in Indiana and Mike gets up to talk about his town and the people who make it so special. But you know he is talking about the cast and crew and maybe the fans, too. I cried.

THE WALKING DEAD, "Time for After", December 3, 2017, Actors: Andrew Lincoln and more
The Scene: Rick takes out the armoured walker (picked by DarkUFO)
