Sam's killer will finally be revealed on Thursday's How to Get Away with Murder fall finale (10/9c, ABC). But to hear Katie Findlay tell it, the "who" is less important than, well, the WTF.
"I think what shocked a lot of us about the way things played out was the actual nuts and bolts of it," Findlay tells TVGuide.com. "What ends up happening is very different than what people are thinking. The actual process of how Sam ends up where he ends up is messy and it takes a lot more than one person making weird calls. It's complex. I'm telling you, really and truly, the process ...
There are three certainties in life: Death, taxes and Papa Pope having the last laugh.
"He always finds a way!" Joe Morton tells TVGuide.com of his Scandal super-villain. "One of the joys of playing the character is people love to hate him. People say to me all the time on Twitter, 'Love the way you play the role. Don't like the character,' which is perfect. You want his demise, but at the same time, it's wonderful the way he manages to evade all this stuff. How is he going to get out of this again?"

Do you have anything on The Mentalist's premiere episode you can share? — Shena, via Twitter
After their big kiss at the end of last season, Lisbon and Jane are fully immersed in their honeymoon period when the season begins. But when they're called back to work to investigate the murder of an undercover FBI agent, they have to figure out how (or if) to break the news of their relationship to their colleagues. Lisbon, for one, wants to keep the romance under wraps — which Jane is willing go along with. Or at least he is until Lisbon's ex Pike comes back in the picture.

Other than the obvious — aka being parents to three kids — and the ridiculous — "We're just inventing stupid 2017 technology," Amy Poehler jokes — viewers should keep their eyes peeled for small, Easter egg-like nods to things that have changed....
State of Affairs
It's a good thing Showtime's Homeland has regained a good deal of its suspenseful mojo this season — Sunday's episode involving a captured Saul (Mandy Patinkin) on the run from the Taliban was especially harrowing — because otherwise it would have a lot to answer for, having seemingly inspired NBC's disappointingly derivative State of Affairs, a clumsy and unconvincing star vehicle for a miscast Katherine Heigl (premiering Monday at 10/9c).
"It's 11:59 and 59 seconds..." Chris Hardwick announces at the opening of @midnight.
Except it's actually 4:30 in the afternoon on the efficiently tiny Hollywood set of Comedy Central's addictive game show, which airs Monday-Thursday at, well, midnight. For host and executive producer Hardwick, @midnight is the closest embodiment to who he is, aside from his stand-up comedy.
"@midnight has the most essential qualities of my personality," Hardwick tells TVGuide.com. "I love game shows, I'm a child of the Internet and comedy and also British panel shows..."

By the end of Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead, it became clearer what the show is most likely building toward for the midseason finale. And, naturally, it probably won't be pretty.
For the third week in a row, the show focused on a group not located with Rick (Andrew Lincoln) & Co. back at the church. In this case, the episode tracked Carol (Melissa McBride) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) on their mission to find and rescue Beth (Emily Kinney). Their strategy....

Semifinals! I can't believe the season is almost over. We have the samba and contemporary this week, and I'll be honest, it's been kind of rocky so far. I had a creative block. It's not just a creative block because I am thinking of things, but it's a point where I'm just not satisfied. I want to do something different. I'm not happy with certain things. On Wednesday, I stayed late and I literally tortured myself until we had this breakthrough and ideas ...
Robert Michael Morris
He Plays: Mickey Deane, personal hairdresser and trusty confidant to has-been actress Valerie Cherish (Lisa Kudrow) on the HBO comedy The Comeback. "Mickey isn't just a great friend to Valerie," Robert Michael Morris says. "He's much more like a mother — and he has the patience of a saint." Make that a Saint Bernard. "We should all have a pal who is as unconditionally loyal," he adds. "Fans always say, 'Valerie is so mean to Mickey!' but he doesn't see it that way. He would walk through fire for her."
