The return of American Horror Story has been long over due! And we have not been disappointed, with a raunchy sex scene between Matt Bomer and Lady Gaga, a months supply of halloween blood and some of the creepiest scenes allowed on tv- infulenced by Steven Kings work no doubt!
But one thing that is missing is Jessica Lange. The woman who has been the soul of the decided to leave the show having given it four years and four remarkable characters. Lange was a huge loss to AHS but now we may rejoice because Lange is set to return.
Ryan Murphy the series' producer stated in an interview for EW "It’s always possible. I’m trying to deal with her play schedule. Jessica is always about the character. She’ll be back—she’s not gone forever"
Speculation still arounds what character she may play or when she may arrive but Murphy has told us that she's back and were ecstatic! Lange is set to return for an unspecified time in this years version of AHS: Hotel alongside AHS veteran Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.
Not gone forever is good enough for us right?! So what do you think? What type of character will Lange play not that she's not part of the credited cast? Will she star as a a new character passing through the hotel? Or will Murphy blend the worlds of past season and show us Elsa Mars or The Supreme having a night away in Los Angeles- anything is possible! Either way I'm sure she will make one hell of an impact!
This year the PlayStation marks its 20th anniversary meaning that those of us, like myself, born in Generation X (1990's-2000- the children born from the adult baby boomers) have been exposed to video games in someway for all of their lives. Because of this interest has snowballed into the effects of video gaming on gamers, now becoming one of the most controversial topics in psychology.
Many researchers in psychology and communication studies believe that video gaming and playing specific games makes a person aggressive, whereas other researchers have found that game playing can sharpen the mind and have a positive impact on cognition.
As it is now a social norm to have at least one gaming console in a household it is understandable why the area is so heavily researched- as it effects almost every household in the UK and USA. Because of this the BBC have created a documentary showcasing the debate and the research on both sides of the fence, research suggesting gaming causes aggression and research suggesting gaming causes prosocial behaviours and is cognitively beneficial to humans.
Check it out on BBC Iplayer (link below) and let me know what you guys think. Which side of the fence do you sit on? Are there particular games you deem 'better' or 'worse' for people? For yourselves or for your children?
Once Upon A Time came back to our screens in the usual OUAT style this week, of course, *spoiler* ending with our beloved group of Heroes and Villains being transported to an enchanted land- this time Camelot and returning without a single memory of the events that took place after their arrival. It is revealed that they have been gone six weeks. I don't think the viewers were shocked at this. But what was shocking was the cold Dark One we saw at the end of the episode.
Throughout the six seasons of The Vampire Diaries we have seen a lot of our beloved characters go through some really terrible traumatic events, but of all the victims in Mystic Falls Bonnie Bennett had to be the most afflicted. Somehow, Bonnie always seems to be coming of the worst and it usually ends in her death... Again.
From offering as a bargaining chip for another life, to having it took from her by the laws of the universe, Bonnie Bennet's stream of bad luck didn't end there. At the end of season five we thought we were saying a tearful goodbye to the witch as she was claimed by an over powering light. But oh no. Bonnie, actually die? No, of course not. Instead she was subject to torture and became the play thing of a psychopathic witchy-wanna be from the Gemini coven. Although born a witch Kai the psycho guy, could not wield his own magic and had to harvest magic from another source- and who else was better than good old Bonnie.
Hoever more recently we seen her return to Mystic Falls, and good old loving Bonnie just doesn't seem the same. And her calm collective personality has been shown to crack! The psychological scars of her time in the 1994 prison world has shown to have caused serious damage to her. Bonnie was always known for her moral attitudes, actions and beliefs and as much as I hate to admit often a little bit of a martyr. But that isn't the case anymore. As we seen recently Bonnie stabbed Kai Parker, her tormenter and torturer, several times and left him to bleed out in 1904 and second prison world created by the Gemini Coven. Although many may believe that Kai deserved this betrayal, we recently seen him gain human empathy and emotions and actually seek out penance for his actions prior to absorbing elements of Luke's personality- again I do not want to talk about that, I wasn't okay with how that went down...
Wit Kai trying always for forgiveness since gaining these emotions Bonnie was not phased by this change in him and sought only revenge. She could not give him her forgiveness and left him to die in 1904. Little does Bonnie know that Kai found his way to the vampiric family of Lily Salvatore left behind in the 1904 prison world, whom we have just found are VAMPIRE WITCHES.
Like Kai, unable to use magic without a source, now as vampires they have an unlimited source of power by channeling themselves. And as we last saw Kai was being, for lack of a better word, 'eaten' by them. I'm presuming, as the seasons almost big bad, that Kai will become vampiric and seek revenge on the morally ambiguous Bonnie Bennet. But hey, if not, she's still going to have to deal with a group of super-vampires.
Having seen this darker part of Bonnie it is possible that if her psychologic issues are not established and treat her mental state may decline and her actions may cascade from this point on. And using stabbing someone to death as a starting point, it could get pretty nasty, pretty quickly. Leaving Kai showed us the moral battle raging within Bonnie and that ultimately the darker part of her psyche won. Seasons ago we seen bonnie using dark magic and slowly becoming a dark character- could this be coming full circle?
Putting herself at ease believing that Kai is forever imprisoned in the 1904 prison world Bonnie has murdered a potentially innocent being- now that Kai has emotions he may not have done such actions if he had them to begin with. However now Bonnie will either become a one track mind in regards to what is right and what is wrong or snowball into a revenge seeking Uber-Witch. With the season focusing on just how psychologically tormenting her experience has been I firmly believe that Bonnie Bennet will no longer be the girl we've known and loved for six seasons but a violent and powerful being fuelled from her pain.
I just hope she gets through it.
But if Kai does come back, or at least when the outcasts of the Gemini coven do, I think this new Bonnie could defiantly give them a run for their money. I suppose we will just have to wait and find out!
So were getting closer and closer to the day everybody is waiting for, the upload of season three of Orange Is The New Black on Netflix. The date, June 12th, has been pencilled in our diaries for months and now we finally get a glimpse of what is to come in our annual Orange's binge!

Mere hours ago Dobrev posted a picture of herself along with executive producer, Julie Plec, on Instagram stating:
"I've just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you it wasn't just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be a human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger, I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and theres still so much more to come before the season finale in May. Elena fell in love not once, but twice, with two epic soulmates, and I myself made some of the best friends I'll ever know and built an extended family."
Rumours have spread like wildfire through the internet this morning with different interpretations at to what this news means to The Vampire Diaries, however the only facts that we have at the moment is that Dobrev is leaving, Micheal Trevino, who plays Mystic Falls' beloved and hottest werewolf Tyler Lockwood, will be leaving with his co-star. Finally, that Plec will change the focus of the show from Elena, to the Salvatore siblings.
It feels like that moment when Sarah Michelle Gellar wouldn't renew Buffy for an eighth season all over again. Delena fans certainly won't be happy to hear this news.
Yet, now Julie Plec, the series' writer and executive producer can steer the show in any direction she feels necessary. This could potentially open up thousands of potential storylines, that may have been otherwise dismissed. It's really quite exciting!
Nina Dobrev has given the successful supernatural show six strong years, having played an abundance of characters, died several times, become a vampire, lost her humanity, found it again, burnt down her house, and seen far too many people she cared about die. Elena clearly deserves a break from Mystic Falls' run of supernatural bad luck and I'm sure Dobrev could do with a few weeks off after all that!
In less than twenty four hours we've lost two of the hottest stars and characters from The Vampire Diaries. So with that we wait for the season six finale to hit in May, and wish both Nina Dobrev and Micheal Trevino farewell.
Only a few days ago British Netflix honoured us with Star Trek: Into Darkness. Uploading the incredible sequel to Star Trek (2009), giving a different interpretation to the well know story of 'The Wrath of Khan', a superior war criminal with dangerous strength and intellect, striking fear into the hearts of all those involved in Star Fleet's operations. Those who boldly go where none has gone before.
With this in mind I decide to have a date night with my boyfriend Nick, to celebrate Netflix's uploading of Star Trek: Into Darkness. So being all witty, I decided to call this night, Star Trek: Into Date Night!
With candles lit and the oven heating up I followed these five simple steps to making Star Trek: Into Date Night Happen...
