The Queerest Things I Watched Last Week – Nov 20, 2017

On this chapter of The Queerest Things I Watched Last Week, the Danvers sisters go back in time, Larry David ruins a lesbian wedding, and a cyber attack forces Arizona and Carina to work together to deliver a queerspawn baby.

  1. Supergirl – Season 3 Episode 6 “Midvale” [Live]
  2. The writers gave us and Alex a break by taking the Danvers sisters to their hometown of Midvale for a post-Sanvers breakup flashback episode.

    The actors who played teen Alex and Kara did a really great job mirroring their mannerisms and looked a lot like them!

    I am really disappointed Vicky Donahue (Alex’s best friend and childhood crush) didn’t make an appearance in the flashback, that could have been funny.

    At the end Alex is not mean drunk anymore and appreciates the trip.

    Maybe Sanvers fans will move past the first two steps of breakup grief: sad drunk and mad drunk.

  3. Curb Your Enthusiasm – Season 9 Episode 1 “Foisted” [Catch up]
  4. Julie Goldman plays a lesbian hair stylist named Betty, and of course, Larry gets in a random offensive/awkward altercation with her. Later he runs into her in Jeff’s office when she arrives to give Jeff a haircut.

    Betty tells Larry about her upcoming wedding with her girlfriend, Numa (played by Nasim Pedrad), and he asks her all kinds of ignorant, gender-normative questions about the wedding. He insists Betty should be the “groom” and Numa the “bride.” This causes conflict in their relationship and in the end Numa threatens to kill him. The majority of Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes end with someone threatening to kill Larry.

    And — BONUS — look who showed up playing Larry’s constipated assistant.

    I love you, Carrie Brownstein.

  5. Shameless – Season 8 Episode 2 “Where’s My Meth?” [Catch up]
  6. Fiona and Nessa grow closer while the show continues to paint Nessa’s girlfriend Mel as an unpleasant partner.

    BTW, I had a “turkey baster” baby, and it’s not really done with a turkey baster. Just sayin’. Maybe instead of using fertility shots they should stop using an actual turkey baster.

    I’m not sure how I feel about these two, but I do know how I feel about Nessa in that tank top.

  7. American Horror Story: Cult Season 7 Episode 11 “Great Again” [Live]
  8. On the season finale episode of Sarah Paulson Screaming, Ally Mayfair-Richards comes out on top, but is she up to something sinister herself?

    This show had me doubting Ally every second, and it was so satisfying to see she was a master manipulator all this time. Watching her bring Kai down, move on with a new girlfriend and become a Senator was pretty sweet.

    Did you see what they did there? (Sarah Paulson played Lana Winters on AHS Asylum.)

    Even though I was happy Ally was in charge and no longer screaming, the whole time I kept telling my wife I thought she was going to come out as cult leader, and they implied that in the very last scene.

    The green hood is the same one worn by the SCUM Manifesto women.

    This season was really twisted roller coaster. It was extra stressful because it dealt with real-life phobias and the political nightmare we are in now. However I am 100% ok with how it ended. Overall it’s definitely one of my favorite AHS seasons.

  9. Riverdale – Season 2 Episode 6 “Death Proof” [Live]
  10. Toni Topaz comes out to Jughead the morning after a “PG-13 grope session.”

  11. Grey’s Anatomy – Season 14 Episode 8 “Out of Nowhere” [Live]
  12. On the mid-season finale episode of Grey’s, a cyber attack forces Arizona and Carina to work together to deliver a lesbian couple’s baby.

    Ah, the set up for a classic bisexual love triangle plot. We’ll see how this pans out when the show comes back in January. In my opinion, between Arizona and Owen, there is no contest.

  13. Jane the Virgin Published Freaking Author – Season 4 Episode 6 “Chapter Seventy” [Live]
  14. Petra figures out that Carl was real and Luisa wasn’t hallucinating.

    She didn’t tell Raff yet, but the “One of these people are going to die” teaser has finally been revealed. At the end of the episode Anezka is found hanged and the narrator lets us know it wasn’t a suicide. RIP Anezka. I’ll miss Yael Grobglas pulling an Orphan Black every week.

  15. Broad City – Season 4 Episode 7 “Florida” [Live]
  16. I forgot to mention this last week…I love Ilana’s shirt in this scene.

  17. Madam Secretary – Season 4 Episode 7 “North to the Future” [Live]
  18. I’ve never watched an episode of Madam Secretary before; I only know it as “the show before The Good Wife.” But after Sara Ramirez broke the queer internet by tweeting about her new character, of course I had to watch.

    I don’t know who anyone is or what’s going on, but I do know I love Kat’s outfits!

    Here is a video clip:

    I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with her character.

Next week, will Nessa and Fiona grow closer? What will Anezka’s death mean for Luisa? How annoyed will we be about Mon El’s return? Check back here to find out.
