Question: From the moment Cyrus elected (pun intended) not to let anyone else in on the bomb threat to the final silliness of Olivia and Jake wending skyward on daddy's jet, the Scandal finale was all the usual over-the-top perfection Gladiators have come to love and expect from Shonda Rhimes when she's operating at the top of her "a little too much is not enough" game. Nice homage to the Keyser Söze reveal from The Usual Suspects at the end. Sorry Columbus Short got offed; perhaps if his character had been given a real reel life I'd miss him more, but that was one of the flaws in the mostly great/outlandish storytelling that truly bugged this fangirl. I know it was a rush from plot point to plot point, but I'm willing to accept the pregnancy as a legitimate excuse for the end-of-season, roller rink stop-and-go, punch in the face/gut action. And what a nice sendoff for Joe Morton! Now let's see how Rhimes gets Olivia back in the game. Who's she gonna play with now? This could be a signal that there are new players, yet to be named. And how in the expletive deleted are they (Ms. Rhimes and Ms. Pope) gonna top that?! — McKenzie

Killer Kids: How The 100 Blurs the Lines between Savagery, Sacrifice and Survival

They're young, they're hot and they'll murder you without a second's hesitation.

Thanks to The Hunger Games and Divergent, dangerous children have gone from things to be feared to the epitome of modern-day protagonists— something the CW is currently cashing in on with the post-apocalyptic drama The 100.

Based on a young adult novel of the same name, the series follows a group of underage kids who grow increasingly violent since leaving the grasp of adult civilization. But unlike its blockbuster predecessors, the majority of violence on The 100 isn't spawned from a need for survival or a fight for justice, nor are those who commit it romanticized as heroes.

Wednesday TV: The 100, Doll & Em, Alec Baldwin on SVU

Imagine the ultimate CW drama, set on an Earth inhabited solely by telegenic young-adult brats celebrating their complete lack of adult supervision. It's a Tribe Without a Cause! Toss in post-apocalyptic echoes of The Hunger Games, forbidden desires out of The Blue Lagoon and the jungle mysteries of Lost — with a toxic cloud of acid fog instead of a mystical Smoke Monster — and you've got the YA formula for The 100, a high-concept guilty pleasure that comes as a bit of a creative relief after a dreary season of derivative spin-offs, reboots and retreads (reaching a nadir in Star-Crossed and The Tomorrow People).

What the Hell Happened to Scandal?

Scandal, I have some questions for you. Namely, what the hell happened?

The ABC drama used to be believable. Not plausible, but at least somewhat believable. For any show to pull off the over-the-top melodrama Scandal does without becoming completely unhinged, it needs to be grounded by some semblance of reason. Even cartoons exist within a set of limitations. For example, Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote can both run in midair unless Coyote looks down and realizes he's about to fall. Then, by the rules of cartoon physics, he plummets. Recently though, it's felt like Scandal's been running full-speed ahead with no ground beneath it, but when they look down and see they're about to fall, they say, 'F--- it, I'm going higher."

The 100's Henry Ian Cusick: Scandal Wasn't a Good Fit for Me

Henry Ian Cusick has no regrets about leaving Scandal just prior to the ABC political fixer drama became wildly popular.

Keck's Exclusives First Look: Hawaii Five-0's Lost Reunions

Hawaii Five-0 is beefing up Chin Ho's (Daniel Dae Kim) presence in Season 4. One upcoming episode will flash back to his first meeting with his late wife, the circumstances surrounding the loss of his badge and his time under the mentorship of McGarrett's father, John.
