I may need to lie down. The season finale of "Scandal" was so packed with ups and downs and twists and turns I may be a little sick to my stomach. Some story lines were tied up with a neat little bow, while others were clearly left in a big, knotted mess for next season. Of course, spoilers galore. I'm just hoping I can keep track of them all.
Did you expect the cliffhanger?
What did you think of Damon's big moment?
I was going to say that this finale did an excellent job of keeping the focus on the bloody, beating heart of the series. Yes, there was some nail-biting drama, but mostly it was about big emotional moments. Klaroline. Delena. To a lesser extent, Stelena. Jeremy and Bonnie (they probably have a cute nickname, which you're welcome to mention in the comments). It all felt like (as befit a graduation-themed episode) a sweet and often poignant summing up, moving on and coming together.
Watch the TV show before you read the book!
Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, gets the teen treatment
Girl meets alien, love blossoms in this new drama
It seems that "Star-Crossed" is really a TV show about interracial love and school busing, but instead of people of color, we get aliens who look like white people with cool tattoos.
Vampires let the good times roll in NoLa
If you're a "The Vampire Diaries" fan, you're probably already setting your DVRs. Go directly to the head of the class and just watch the video. But if you're not, here's what you can expect from "The Originals," the spin-off of the long-running vampire/werewolf/witch/oh my franchise.
The next evolutionary leap of mankind is paranormal
Apparently, hearing voices does not mean you need medication. Maybe. On The CW's new series "Tomorrow People," the next generation of humans is born with paranormal abilities. Stephen Jameson (Robbie Amell) stands at the crossroads between the world we know and the shifting world of the future. Up until a year ago, Stephen was a “normal” teenager — until he began hearing voices (see?) and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up.
Detroit is the destination, and the talent is (mostly) hot
Detroit! Otherwise known as "Audition City #2," as stated in the episode title. Was that considered too big of a reveal? Did Fox think people would tune in, then see "Detroit" in the title and switch channels? I guess that will remain a mystery, but the good new is that TWitch is in the house! With Nigel and Mary. The producers had better not wear out poor Mary. She had cancer. Be nice, for crying out loud. But I guess the "nice" part of Detroit was giving Mary some time with the male exotic dancers. Good thing she didn't have heart problems.
The new fall comedy tackles intergenerational divorce
Four guys, one short-term apartment complex, and bonding
You know what's like a dorm for old guys? A short-term apartment complex full of recently divorced men! Isn't that fun. "We Are Men" is about four newly-single guys who live in the same complex and find camaraderie as they look for love. And pick up chicks in bars. It's heartwarming! And not sad or depressing at all. Unless there are some scenes like that.
