Every Supernatural finale fills me with both joy and dread because even when the Winchesters succeed, things still end badly for them. Car crashes, Lucifer rising, getting trapped in Purgatory; Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) just can't catch a break when it comes to finales! With the stakes even higher this year, I get the feeling their sacrifice will be respectively dire (the fact that the episode is called "Sacrifice" doesn't bode too well, either).
With any details about the finale (Wednesday at 9/8c on The CW) on lockdown, it's up to us to theorize about what's to come. Here's are my predictions:
Daniella Alonso, Billy Burk, Elizabeth Mitchell
It's a classic tale of boy meets girl, boy meets another girl, boy makes out with both girls years later and sends Revolution shippers into a tizzy.
Trying to save the world hasn't stopped Miles Matheson (Billy Burke) from putting himself in the middle of one hot love triangle on the NBC drama (Mondays at 10/9c). On one hand, he has his former fling Nora Clayton (Daniella Alonso), an altruistic rebel with a penchant for blowing things up. But on the other, there's Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell), his late brother's widow (and his former militia hostage) who shares in Miles' moral depravity.
After years of fighting demons on his long-running CW series Supernatural, Eric Kripke is tackling much more human baddies on his freshman NBC drama Revolution. In the post-apocalyptic adventure, villains using nanomachines have eliminated most of the world's electricity, leading to chaos and brutal oligarchies. Revolution has just been renewed for a second season, so Kripke answered our showrunner survey to explain why you should plug in.
Our best moments of the week:
12. Best Dynasty Homage: There's been a lot of death and violence on The Following, but until this week, the show had been seriously lacking one key dramatic television component: a catfight. Fortunately, we can check off that box after Claire confronts Emma, the Follower who posed as her nanny and kidnapped her son. Claire slams her against the wall in a chokehold and repeatedly insists, "I'm going to kill you." Just the kind of woman who might marry a serial killer, ay? We finally...
Monday's Revolution answered the question we've all been waiting for: What caused the blackout? So let's not waste any time before digging into the seven burning questions from "The Song Remains the Same."
[WARNING: Major spoilers ahead. Read at your own risk.]
Daniella Alonso, Graham Rogers, Zak Orth, Tracy Spiridakos
The joy that came with Revolution's return was more than a little dampened by frustration, shock and grief at the episode's much-hyped major death. So who died? Read on for this and ten other burning questions from "The Stand."
[Obviously, spoilers are ahead. Read at your own risk.]
Apparently, when Eric Kripke said that Revolution would "come back with a bang," he wasn't joking. NBC released the first minute of Revolution's next episode (March 25 at 10/9c) and it appears as though our gang's escape plan goes up in smoke — literally!
Billy Burke, David Boreanaz, Paul Wesley

Thanks for the Revolution scoop! Is there anything you can tease about the return episode? — James
NATALIE: Death! Yup, there will be a major casualty in the very first episode back. Executive producer Eric Kripke offered up this one tease: "I can say that it changes the dynamic wildly," he says. "It's a story that really kicks off the mythology for the rest of the season." Any guesses as to who's going to bite the dust? Hit the comments!
What have you heard about Bones' finale? Any chance we'll see an engagement for Brennan and Booth? — Britney
ADAM: Executive producer Stephan Nathan promises...
Now we finally know why they called it Revolution. When NBC's rambunctious action-adventure series premiered to record ratings last fall, it was all about a dystopian future world without power or technology. But when the show returns March 25 after a four-month break, we'll suddenly find our ragtag heroes, led by crossbow-wielding Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos) and her sword-swinging uncle, Miles (Billy Burke), under attack by a squadron of military choppers. Juice has been restored — and the villains have it!
The revolution is about to begin!
On Monday, March 25 (10/9c), Revolution returns after a four-month hiatus — and though it's been quite a while since the show has been on the air, the NBC series will pick up exactly where we left off, with Miles (Billy Burke) & Co. on the run from Monroe (David Lyons) and his fleet of newly powered helicopters. But will they be able to make a daring escape? In short, duh! The show can't end like that! But what's in store for the survivors? The cast and executive producers teased what's coming up at Saturday's PaleyFest panel, moderated by TV Guide Magazine's Michael Schneider. Get the scoop below:
