Now that Jake has been arrested, please tell me that Olivia will finally find out that Rowan was behind Jerry's death on Scandal. — Denise

Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like that reveal is coming any time soon. "You always think it can't go on any longer, but they twist it in a way you didn't even think of," star Brian Letscher, who plays Tom, teases of the (inevitable?) reveal. "Rowan is a master manipulator .... and the ripple effects of Tom [saying Jake ordered him to kill Jerry] affect a lot of people in ways he never imagined."

Got anything about the final season of The Newsroom? — Ashley

The season premiere is set around the events of the Boston Marathon bombing and, owing to ACN's screw-up with the Operation Genoa story last season, everyone is appropriately gun shy about reporting the "facts" of the story too quickly...read more

The 100 Creator on Who Survived and the Mystery Behind Mount Weather

The best sci-fi show on TV returns Wednesday and it's on The CW. Though it initially appeared to be yet another post-apocalyptic teen drama (love triangles and all), The 100 quickly set itself apart from the pack with its gritty realism and complex world-building. When the series returns for its second season, it continues the momentum of last year's (literally) explosive finale and builds on it by introducing viewers to the mysterious underground compound Mount Weather. But could this really be the 100's salvation? Find out what creator Jason Rothenberg has to say about this, who survived and what's to come.

The 100 Creator Previews the Finale's Big Battle: "They're Screwed"

Things are not looking up for The 100. The Grounders are heading their way, their weapons expert has been shot and that jerk Murphy wasted all their gun powder. But these kids aren't ones to go down without a fight. Ahead of Wednesday's season finale (9/8c, The CW), creator Jason Rothenberg spoke to TVGuide.com about how the hundred will fare in the bigshowdown with the Grounders, the likelihood of the Ark making it to Earth and more.

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.
