Best Lines of the Week (October 14-20): ‘I’m Mick Fleetwood?’

The CW

As we draw nearer to Halloween, this week’s episodes succeeded in preparing us for the spirit of spooky with dark humor and dark storylines.

From the harrowing journey the Winchesters gang embarks on to the sinister confrontation between House of the Dragon‘s Rhaenys (Eve Best) and Alicent (Olivia Cooke), the cool weather outside wasn’t the only thing chilling us to the bone this week. Luckily, the lighthearted antics of the Belcher family in Bob’s Burgers and Oh Hell‘s Helene (Mala Emde) offered a refreshing reprieve from this week’s more intense episodes.
