Fans of NBC's The Office may remember how Steve Carell's character, Michael Scott, was enamored by improv sketch comedy. He'd probably also be a fan of Fox's Riot, a new improv show from Carell's production company, Carousel Television. Based on a French format, Riot requires its seven featured players and guest stars to play in song, dance and sketch challenges — frequently on a set that has been titled at a 22-degree angle.

But the War reveal wasn't the only shocking moment in the finale. Abbie (Nicole Beharie) was left in purgatory, Ichabod was buried alive, Katrina was taken by Headless, who caused Jenny (Lyndie Greenwood) to get in a horrific car accident, and Irving (Orlando Jones) took the fall for his daughter killing the priest. Suffice it to say, no one is in position to take on War.
