Our top moments of the week:
14. Dead Sexy Award: Boyd's story just keeps getting twist-ier on Justified. In order to get out of his latest beef with Paxton, Boyd convinces Sheriff Mooney to switch sides in the battle and tells Paxton he had indeed murdered Boyd. But in order to pull off the scheme, Mara suggests Paxton will need to see a dead body — or at least part of one. Ultimately, the pair decides — after upping the sexual tension by taking a guided tour of the tattoos on Boyd's naked torso — to re-create Boyd's ink on one of the body parts in Paxton's own morgue as a stand-in. Ironically, if prison-bound Ava knew about Boyd and Mara's sexy stand-off in the bar, Boyd might already be a goner!
13. Most Disturbing "Double" Date: The Following has viewers seeing double this week, with the shocking revelation that newcomer Sam Underwood is playing not one, but two characters. Viewers get a chilling introduction to Underwood's Joe Carroll devotee, Luke, by seeing him on a date — with a girl he had just killed. Talk about a romance that's dead on arrival! As if Luke's necrophilia montage wasn't disturbing enough, a bathroom scene (what is it with this show and showers?) reveals that he is actually a twin! Luke and Mark's capacities for evil are just as identical as their looks, and we can't wait to find out what's in store for this perverted pair in Season 2.
12. Best Surprise: After Nick fails to make plans for Jess' birthday on New Girl, she tears up and decides to do what she's done every other year: go to the movies by herself. However, when the previews begin to roll, Nick's face pops up on the screen, followed by a video featuring all of her family and friends talking about why they love her and to wish her a happy birthday. The lights then turn on to reveal all of her friends sitting in the theater. Now everyone pipe down — the movie is about to start!
11. Saddest Reveal: On Bones, Dr. Brennan discovers that squintern Wendell Bray has a rare and highly deadly type of bone cancer. After confiding in Booth, the pair finally break the news to Wendell at the diner. During their conversation, the usually un-emotional Brennan is so consumed with sadness she can barely speak the words. Despite her sadness, Brennan stands by Wendell when he decides not to subject himself to painful chemo until later in the lab, when Wendell laments his sad fate. "We were becoming a good team, weren't we?" he says, before Brennan responds, "We are.... We are a good team, Mr. Bray." Shortly thereafter, Wendell decides to fight, much to our relief. If breaking the news was this heartbreaking, there's no way we could handle a funeral.
10. Worst Spell: On The Originals, teen witch Davina started to become so overwhelmed by her powers it was killing her. In an effort to save the city from her strength, Sophie performs the harvest, which is supposed to kill Davina and then bring her back to life, while appeasing the witches' ancestors. But the plan hits a hiccup when Davina fails to wake up, leaving her one-time guardian Marcel distraught over the loss.
9. Worst Proposal: Leave it to Mary to steal the thunder of Downton Abbey introducing its first black character. After barely knowing each other for five seconds, Lord Gillingham confesses he's desperately in love with Mary and asks for her hand in the least romantic way possible: "He's dead and I'm alive." Thankfully, Mary has more common sense than Lord Grantham assumes and she turns him down. But based on Mary's look of regret, we have a feeling Gillingham isn't totally out of the picture.
8. Kiss of Death Award: On this week's The Bachelor, Juan Pablo makes the rookie mistake of kissing someone out in the open so that the others could see. During the group date, Juan Pablo and Sharleen sit in the middle of a soccer field where they make out not once, but twice within gawking distance of the rest of the women. Needless to say, Sharleen has a target on her back.
7. Best Resurrection: Sherlock lives! In the third season premiere of Sherlock, our favorite private investigator returns to London after faking his death two years prior. Reason to celebrate, right? Well... John Watson is more than a little miffed that he was was left in the dark to mourn and grow an unfortunate mustache. To get back into his partner's good graces, Sherlock needs to save John's life twice -- first from a Guy Fawkes bonfire and then a subway bomb. Not so shabby for a dead guy!
6. What's in a Name? Award: Ted's mom always said that "nothing good happens after 2 a.m.," but as Ted proves on How I Met Your Mother, there are exceptions to every rule. In a flash-forward to 2017, The Mother, pregnant with their second child, goes into labor in the middle of the night at the Farhampton Inn (these two can't get enough of this place!) and we finally learn Ted's kids names: Penny and... Luke (as in Skywalker, duh). We're guessing The Mother shut down Ted's Luke-and-Leia pipe dream.
5. Best Reunion: The Vampire Diaries celebrates its 100th episode by bringing back some familiar faces. In a moment that many fans had been hoping and waiting for, Caroline and Klaus are reunited. What begins as their usual sexual tension-loaded banter ends with them ripping each other's clothes off in the middle of a field. Guess absence really does make the heart grow fonder!
4. Worst Kidnapping: After spending all episode secretly making plans to meet up with Cruz on Criminal Minds, JJ heads to the spot in the dead of the night. While she's waiting, she's suddenly grabbed from behind and dragged away, as her phone falls to the ground. Who took her? And what does he want with her? You'll find out in the 200th episode!
3. Worst Spoiler Alert: Celebrities — they're just like us! During an interview with Access Hollywood at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Jennifer Lawrence, who has only seen the first two seasons of Homeland, geeks out when she sees Damian Lewis being interviewed next to her because "that's Brody." After Access host Shaun Robinson introduces the two, she drops a major spoiler on J. Law by asking what she thinks of Brody's death. "What?!" a shocked Lawrence exclaims. Robinson tries to apologize, but the damage is done. "Its past mad," Lawrence deadpans. "It's this weird other emotion. ... You're a monster." Jeez, Brody really does bring misery with him wherever he goes.
2. Most Shocking Death: In a season full of death and resurrections, it should come as no surprise that Fiona finally meets her end at the hands of the Axeman and his, well, ax on American Horror Story: Coven after Cordelia tells him that Fiona planned to leave him once she got her powers back. But what is slightly surprising is that she will not be brought back to life, since the Axeman fed her corpse to gators. Apparently, once you go "gator sh--," you never go back.
1. Best Kiss: The ending of this week's Mindy Project has us emitting such a squeal that only people under 60 and dogs could hear it. After helping her write an apology letter to her ex-boyfriend Cliff on a flight to New York, Danny finally decides to do something about his long-standing crush on her and rushes up to Mindy to kiss her -- like, seriously kiss her. The best part? She kisses him back! What's next for the doctors remains up in the air, but we're excited to see how Mindy and Danny deal with the fallout of finally admitting — at least partially — their feelings for one another.
