The Blacklist -
1. Red: "You know, 29 years ago in Sierra Leone, there was a farmer named Samwel Zuma who had the audacity to identify several low-level Mombasa operatives to local authorities. The cartel massacred the entire family... All but the youngest son. He was sold to a local ring of flesh peddlers. The majority of children in those circumstances don't last more than nine months. He survived eight years. He was 14 when I found him. Too old, too tall, too angry and dangerous to be of any further value. He was left to die, chained to a standpipe in the basement of a squalid brothel in Nairobi. Branded, burned, barely alive. So I took him. Made him well, saw to his education. He graduated university with a bachelor's degree in English Literature. He speaks four languages fluently and can get by in a half a dozen more. He is... splendid. His name is Dembe... Dembe Zuma."

Stop shouting now, stop making a fuss it's too late. You know the key strategic weakness of the human race, the dead outnumber the living." Doctor: "Who are you?" Missy: "Oh, you know who I am. I’m Missy." Doctor: "Who’s Missy?" Missy: "Please, try to keep up. Short for Mistress. Well, I couldn't very well keep calling myself the Master, now could I?" (Nirat Anop)
3. Clara: "You're going to help me?" The Doctor: "Well why wouldn't I help you." Clara: "Because of what I just did..I just..." The Doctor "You betrayed me. You betrayed my trust. You betrayed our friendship. You betrayed everything that I ever stood for...YOU LET ME DOWN!" Clara: "Then why are you helping me?" The Doctor: "Why? Do you think I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference?" (Sandi) ~I love that the Doctor gets why Clara is so upset and will help her when she is at her lowest point.

Not just Trisha Stanley, and her boyfriend David Allen who spent 21 years in prison, but the thousands who were displaced in the name of lining your pockets. The majority of whom are poor, powerless, and didn't bare the skin desirable to your business interest, you tore a community apart, you tore families apart.

The Snow Queen: "I wish nothing from you" Sidney: "I don't understand but the deal was.." The Snow Queen: "It wasn't you that I wanted, Sidney. It was the mirror itself, you more than anyone else should understand the mirrors importance. Mirrors reflect our mood, our Desires, our essence. They are a temporary receptacle for some tiny fraction of our soul." Sidney: "You have other mirrors" The Snow Queen: "I have many, hundreds but none as important as this one for what I want to, your former home should do quite nicely. The person who trapped you in here, imbued it with much darker magic." Sidney: "My Queen, what are you planning?" The Snow Queen: "What I am planning, Is to get what has been denied from me for too long, what I deserve" Sidney: "What's that?" The Snow Queen: "That's between me and well, my reflection, enjoy your freedom Sidney, a word of advice, get a warm coat, it's going to get a bit cooler around here. So close, soon I will have what I want. A family that loves me." (Nirat Anop)



Reign -
1. "Possessed" Caroline: "There's no peace for me, not while my killer walks free." Francis: "If you're here to lay blame then at least be honest and shoulder some of your own.

For my wife!" "Possessed" Caroline: "You can try and justify your shame but you don't admit it." Francis "You couldn't have England and Scotland without her, and you couldn't have her unless I was gone. Admit it. Admit that you wanted me dead!" "Possessed" Caroline: "Is that why you did it? Is that why you killed me?" Francis "YES! Yes. It nearly destroyed me to kill my own father, but you left me no choice." Narcisse: "Ahem" (Sandi) ~Wonderful scene, Toby Regbo and Jane Spidell were just mesmerising throughout the whole argument! In some ways I'm sorry that the fake possession story is over as I've loved Caroline as Henry, it's been a fantastic performance and she's really stirred things up and made things interesting.
