In “Suicidal Tendencies”, newlyweds Diggle and Lyla spent their honeymoon with the Suicide Squad on a covert op to save a government official they believed was being held hostage.

As it turns out he was the big bad mastermind behind it all. This would have been a shocking twist had this not have been the outcome in every other operation Diggle has been sent on. It has reached predictable proportions now.

The Top 5 Reasons to See 'Insurgent'

#5: Tris is a Great Heroine

When it comes to having a heroine who is tough, courageous, passionate, brave and romantic; the “Divergent” series’ Tris dominates her genre competition. As a renegade fighting a totalitarian government, she is reasonably hesitant and outright determined.

What the first movie managed to capture was an ordinary girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, coming to grips with her destiny and finding her place in the world.

TV Rundown: March 8 - 13 | Part 2: Romances are Torn Apart on 'Reign' & 'Vikings' Shocks

Reign | “Tasting Revenge” was an episode filled with relationship turmoil, as some couples came together and others broke apart. First off there was the dissolution of Frary.

TV Rundown: Soap Edition | Burning Questions Consume 'General Hospital' & 'Bold & the Beautiful'

General Hospital | The custody battle for adorable baby Avery, took center stage last week and the power struggle hit critical mass when Michael was awarded custody over Sonny. It’s a poetic twist; the show has been smartly lying the groundwork for, for over a year. As delicious as long time viewers and Quartermaine fans have found it to be, the on-screen viewpoint that opposes Michael’s behavior has been so disproportionately negative, it’s tough to take recent events as a victory. It’s not reasonable that so many of PC’s citizens would be backing the mob don over Michael. Michael is the clearly injured party here, not Sonny.
