Best Lines of the Week (April 15-21): ‘Real Brides Arrive Late’


This week our TV screens have taught us one thing: We can never get enough of the drama that our favorite shows are swarming in.

NBC‘s This Is Us has us hooked on the mystery of who Kevin’s (Justin Hartley) endgame will be — and in-show, a couple of guests at Kate’s (Chrissy Metz) wedding were keeping a close eye on him. Meanwhile, The Kardashians are offering us some of that good reality drama we didn’t know we needed, and Fear The Walking Dead continues to have us rooting for our heroine, Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey). Plus, there was even more reality drama to love with shows like The Courtship and Below Deck Down Under on air. We couldn’t turn away from our screens this week!
