Now Watching: You 1×3 | “Maybe” | Recap

Last week on You, Joe went on his first date with Beck and finally got rid of the man in the middle, Benji. Joe doesn’t realize that he’s not good enough for Beck either, especially considering the circumstances.

Things between Joe and Beck are going smoothly as they walk hand in hand getting to know each other. Beck confesses her forever movie is Pretty In Pink and Joe eats it up during his inner monologue – typical. When Beck asks about his ex Candice, he has the perfect answer. Now I really want to know. His inner monologue continues as he watches Beck walk to her apartment and he remembers he has to get rid of the body he left in the bookstore basement.

He’s still keeping appearances on social media to make it seem that Benji is just partying hard and everyone believes it. But other than that, Joe has no idea what he’s doing. He can’t just Google it. He has to be smart about it, but his stomach can’t handle it.

Beck meets with her girlfriends later in the day recapping her new TA position and her Tinder hookup from the night before. Little does she know, Joe is sitting at the bar eavesdropping. “Joe’s still a maybe,” she says out loud, while Peach rolls her eyes and Joe stresses TF out. Both Joe and Peach don’t want to see Beck hooking up with other people. But Joe still watches from across the street as Beck bangs the barista.

The Tinder news is the push Joe needs to finally get the guts to get rid of Benjie. But it’s said when he gets young Paco to get a few items: potassium nitrate, six rolls of duct tape, fire starter, twine, burlap, wood stamps, tarp, and potting soil. Science project?

While Paco gets the stuff, Joe takes the time to go on a shopping spree with Beck. She thinks he has such perfect timing. Joe almost slips up again when he states that her bedroom isn’t big enough to fit a king sized bed. But again, he’s quick on his feet. And quick to go down. They have a moment on a bed in a shop as Beck feels unremarkable which leads to a make out sesh, that is quickly shot down when they are almost caught having oral sex in public. Beck’s not in the mood and Joe stops thinking about it when the electricity goes down at the bookstore.

It’s time for Joe to finally suck it up and get rid of the body. But not before heading to Beck’s to help with her new bed. Beck then reveals why she didn’t enjoy that public display of affection. She likes Joe…actually likes him. And I hate the fact that I think this scene is cute. Joe gets Beck to open up and finally hears her story about her Dad and his red ladle. The red ladle symbolizes happy times with her father, not the perverted story Benji had up his sleeve.

Things start to get heated, but Peach has perfect timing with some bladder issues, showing up unannounced. Joe drives them to the ER, but Peach can’t stand the smell. Makes sense considering there is a dead body. Later on, Peach recovers at the hospital and Beck thinks it’s the right time to ask her what she thinks about Joe. She does not approve, especially due to his financial situation. That’s shallow, but we all know Peach just loves Beck.

As Joe returns home to finish his job, he’s met by the police and Paco’s step dad, Ron. He found the list, but Joe was prepared with a secret garden. Ron explains that he was a parole office and he has a bad feeling about Joe, but only proves that his relationship with his girlfriend’s son is a bit estranged as he yells at Paco.

Joe FINALLY gets some time to rid the world of Benji, but Beck decides to call to continue their little bed party. Unfortunately, he’s a little too distracted especially when two people are walking in the woods at night. The pressure gets to him and he has a little word vomit, practically yelling at Beck for giving him mixed signals. He hangs up in a rush, sets the body on fire and invites the hikers to join his bonfire. Lucky for him, they decline.

Joe’s a little heartbroken when Beck ignores his calls. But she had better things to worry about like her poem piece for her TA workshop, which she didn’t even get a chance to read. Beck was then inspired to open up again. “If i’m sending mixed messages, it’s because I don’t know who I am, so how am I supposed to know what I want?,” Beck confesses. Same, Beck, same. Then she goes on a spiel about not knowing anything about Joe or his friends. He’s so willing to let her in on who Joe is, he invites her to the downstairs basement. And I’m screaming at Beck to not go down there!

The mysterious bookkeeper explains what they keep in the basement and I’m having deja vu considering this is the same exact thing he said to Paco. I’m sure he’s going to keep out the fact that he also keeps dead bodies.  He may even have “Ozma of Oz” down there, which Peach later notices is missing. Beck deletes Tinder and all is well in the Joe/Beck world, until Joe finishes in less than 15 seconds.

How is this show so funny, cute, thrilling, and disturbing at the same time?

What’s in my Netflix queue? (Part One)

I used to watch a lot of television. Keyword(s): used to. I’d get excited for new shows and new seasons every Fall that I would create a little spreadsheet/calendar of premiere dates.  I would typically stay on top of my shows and never really have to catch up.

I still watch a lot of television. But i’m so behind on my former favorite shows. Plus, I hate watching TV in the presence of other people. I’m anti-social like that. And I have no wifi.

The only show that I love and stayed caught up on was Pretty Little Liars and currently Game of Thrones and The Bold Type.

I’d like to catch up on shows before the new seasons start.  However, I feel like I have a long way to go, especially since my Netflix queue is all over the place. Let’s take a look…

THE TOP 5. These series are a few of my all time favorite shows. Sadly all of them are done, but I’m ready to binge watch.

Glee ended two years ago. I still listen to the soundtracks and see each performance in my head. It gave me life then and it still gives me life now. I miss seeing those kids every week. I need to hear them singing new songs and covers.

Pretty Little Liars just ended back in June. I tried binge watching all the eps before the finale, but that just didn’t work out. 160 episodes to watch in two weeks was pretty impossible. But it was so nostalgic watching the pilot compared to the last few episodes. The finale was an ode to the fans.

Gossip Girl came back on my radar when two of my favorite Filipino actresses revealed they was rewatching episodes. The pilot episode gave me so many feels, but I’m still mad at how it ended.

One Tree Hill had Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush, two people I love. Unfortunately, I still need to catch up on OTH. I don’t remember ever finishing the last 2 seasons. But I did watch the finale.

The Secret Circle will always be the one that got away. When I heard of this cancellation, I was devastated. The first season left us with such a cliffhanger! I legit cried and I even participated in signing those petitions and tweeting #SaveTheCircle. Out of all the CW cancellations, this was the one that disappointed me the most. #WitchesRule

THE FAVES I NEED TO CATCH UP ON. These shows have new seasons coming soon and some even their last!

The Originals. I watched TVD to watch Phoebe Tonkin kick ass as a werewolf (She was on the Secret Circle). Then she got her own show with the Original vampire family, so I had to watch it. However, I think I stopped during season 2 or 3. It’s 5th and final season is premiering this Fall and I may wait and just binge watch after it’s done.

Once Upon A Time has many changes in the new season this fall, with several main characters leaving. There are so many twists and turns on our favorite fairytales. I’m curious to see how it goes without it’s main heroine and family, but I have to catch up on about 1 and a half seasons. But since it’s sort of a reboot maybe I don’t have to catch up…

How to Get Away with Murder. I’m on the season where they focus on “Who shot Analise?” That’s season 2 I think? HTGAWM makes me think too much. At first it was confusing with all the flashbacks, but I started to understand more and it sucked me in. In fact, it’s the only show in Shondaland I ever got into.

Orange is the New Black doesn’t have a new season coming out anytime soon, so I have a lot of time to catch up. This past season is pretty good so far. There’s so much chaos amongst the inmate takeover, I can’t wait to see who survives it.

THE SHOWS ABOUT THE SUPERHEROES. Smallville was my favorite show growing up, so to see the following shows make such an impact on their audiences is pretty amazing.

To be honest, I need to catch up a lot on these shows. I might as well start from the beginning.

Supergirl. As a fan of Superman, I was so excited for this show. I was so excited to see Supergirl’s story, not just Superman’s cousin. Honestly, when they brought Superman on the show (Tyler Hoechlin), I was kind of pissed and scared that he would outshine Kara. But anyways, Kara and her friends felt relatable. She wasn’t just this alien, she was a girl trying to figure out what she wanted in life. Also, as a Gleek, Melissa Benoist made me proud.

The Flash. I didn’t know much about Barry Gordon, other than what I saw on Smallville. I still don’t know much about him, but Grant Gustin is a dork and how can you not fall in love with him.

Arrow. Just like the Flash, the only Oliver Queen I knew was played by Justin Hartley, and I loved him. I didn’t know Stephen Amell, but I knew Katie Cassidy and I wanted to support one of my favorite CW actresses. But I fell in love with the drama and the action. What can I say? I love the brooding guys that come out of their shell. Am I talking about the right show?

Gotham. I never finished season one, but I liked what I saw in the first few episodes. We’re all used to seeing grown up, broody Batman, but in contrast, we see the future Batman as an innocent little boy who just lost his parents. However, we do see some brooding from Benjamin McKenzie. Oh how I missed that.

This isn’t my whole Netflix queue, but it’s the ones that are on the top of my list! Stay tuned for more of my list and maybe we can watch together.

xoxo,

Adele
