The Queerest Things I Watched Last Week – January 21, 2019

Queerest Things - Niko returns to Charmed

On this chapter of The Queerest Things I Watched Last Week, we meet Alice’s ex-GF and her new fiancée on Good Trouble, say goodbye to Cece on Grey’s, and say hello again as Niko returns to Charmed.

Warning: This post contains spoilers!
Runaways – Season 2 Episode 10 “Hostile Takeover” [Streaming]

It’s been a few episodes of Nico and Karolina not doing anything but having the occasional fight, so the queerest thing happening on Runaways at the moment is a possessed Tina showing Janet how to use a “scary alien weapon.”

Runaways - Tina and Janet

I’m still waiting for Nico and Karolina to have a 2 second hug, a handshake or anything besides a few sentences exchanged in annoyance.

Good Trouble – Season 1 Episode 2 “The Coterie” [Live]

On this episode of Good Trouble, we meet Alice’s ex girlfriend, Sumi, and we learn Alice is still hung up on her. Sumi takes advantage of this in many ways. She takes her money and favors, and generally abuses the fact that Alice is still in love with her.

They throw a big party at The Coterie, and all night Alice is watching the door for Sumi so she can give her a birthday cake. When Sumi finally shows up, she’s there with her new girlfriend and, surprise — they just got engaged.

Good Trouble - We're engaged

Poor Alice. But how great is it to see one of our favorite actors Briana Venskus playing a queer character?

Later, Alice is in a room with Marianna and Davia drowning her sorrows in the birthday cake she baked for Sumi, when Sumi and her fiancée bust in.

Good Trouble - That's amazing

Alice: forever the supportive doormat.

And then this happens.

Good Trouble - I want you to be my maid of honor

Before you know it Alice is going to be planning the whole thing and paying for the caterer. I hope our girl eventually gathers enough self-esteem to be honest with Sumi.

Riverdale – Season 3 Episode 9 “No Exit” [Live]

At the beginning of this episode, Cheryl and Toni get home from a night of cat burglaring and say the l word to each other!

Riverdale - Choni I love you

At school, the quarantine’s been lifted, but Moose and Kevin are still enforcing the “no physical contact” rule against Cheryl and Toni when they’re caught holding hands. They are not compliant.

Riverdale - C'mon TT

And then at La Bonne Nuit, we learn Cheryl and Toni have a regular table.

Riverdale - Welcome ladies

All that and some girlfriend breaking and entering into Hiram Lodge’s house gave us a decent handful of Choni content. I’ll give you that, Riverdale.

Grey’s Anatomy – Season 15 Episode 9 “Shelter From the Storm” [Live]

Well, Cece the magical, matchmaking lesbian’s arc came to an end this episode.

Greys Anatomy - Thank you Cece

Thank you, Cece, for hanging around to help everyone with their love lives before dying in the OR.

In the 15 years Grey’s has been on TV, this is the first queer character to die on the show. That says something since the odds of surviving a stay at Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital aren’t very good.

Charmed – Season 1 Episode 10 “Keep Calm And Harry On” [Live]

This episode was all about extracting Harry from Tartarus. At the end of the episode, Mel and Jada kiss and someone snaps a picture of it.

Niko returns to Charmed - you wanna get out of here

Oh, snap! Detective Hamada is on the case! I may have gasped when I saw it was Niko.

Now we know how Niko is going to re-enter the show, and I love it! I see many episodes of fun queer drama ahead.

Tonight — Black Lightning’s back, and I’m hoping Anissa and Grace learn about each other’s powers soon!
