Anything on The Blacklist— Michelle 
While everyone has been focused on the mystery of Liz's father, Season 2 will also explore who Liz's mother was. "If the part about my dad wasn't true, what is the truth, if any, that I need to learn about my mom?" executive producer John Eisendrath says of Liz's mindset this year. In other news, there will be a small time jump when the show returns, but Berlin will still very much be in the picture as the main villain in the "first portion of the year," Eisendrath adds.

Kerry Washington and Columbus Short

When Scandal returns, the ABC political fixer drama will waste no time resolving many of the jaw-dropping cliff-hangers that fans have been discussing all summer.

In the Season 3 finale, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) inadvertently fulfilled her father Rowan's (Joe Morton) wishes by boarding a plane with Jake (Scott Foley), leaving behind Washington D.C. and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn). Little did she know, daddy dearest murdered Fitz and Mellie's (Bellamy Young) son in a bid to become Command of B613 again and insure that POTUS would stay in office.

Scandal: Who didn't survive the season finale?

The only person who figured it out was the one man who had a gun pointed at his head in the closing moments of the finale.

Question: I heard that Fox canceled its freshmen sitcoms Dads, Enlisted and Surviving Jack! While I never watched and didn't care for Dads, I did watch (and loved!) both Enlisted and Surviving Jack. What puzzles me about the cancellations of all of these shows were that their ratings performed with the same numbers that Fox's other sitcoms New Girl, The Mindy Project and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, yet those shows all got renewed for another season! Why is it that The Powers That Be at Fox would cancel three shows that had the same low (or modest) ratings as the other three shows that got picked up for another year? It doesn't really make sense with me! - Chris
