While the actors who portray our favorite characters get the majority of fan adoration, more and more, writers and show runners are rightfully getting their place in the spotlight. Sure, Ali Liebert brings Betty’s swagger on Bomb Girls, but writers dream up the lines that cut through us like a warm knife through maple butter. Paige McCullers would be just a footnote — a field hockey penalty — if Pretty Little Liars’ show runner hadn’t seen her potential and gone with her gut. So here’s to the writers who inspire us, and the women and men who run the show. (Thank you to all of you who tweeted me your favorites.)

Last Resort, Season 1, Episode 11: “Damn the Torpedoes”
Directed by Clark Johnson
Airs Thursdays at 8pm (Et) on ABC
Before the show’s winter hiatus, Chaplin had formed an uneasy alliance with the Chinese for supplies to the island in exchange for cooperation. The terms of the negotiation remained nebulous, but the implication was clear; Chaplin and the USS Colorado had been forced into becoming a pawn in a larger fight, and Chaplin’s refusal to do the same when a rogue faction of the Us government was looking to do the same is what kicked off the events that he is currently embroiled in in the first place. Chaplin’s alliance with the Chinese, however, as much as it makes Chaplin uncomfortable, was bound to rub other members of the USS Colorado the wrong way, making an already volatile situation even worse. »
