Gossip Girl "End of the Affair" Postmortem: Burning Questions Answered!

Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester

[WARNING: The following story contains major spoilers from the midseason premiere of Gossip Girl, "The End of the Affair." Read at your own risk.]

Monday's episode of Gossip Girl was fittingly titled "The End of the Affair" — so if you're familiar with the Graham Greene novel or the Julianne Moore-Ralph Fiennes film adaptation, you might have guessed what was going to happen to Chuck and Blair post-car accident.

Faced with the possibility of losing Chuck, Blair made a deal with God: Save Chuck and she'll stay away. Immediately after, she's told he's emerged from his coma. "When we start a season, we talk about what works have inspired us as writers. This year, there was The Talented Mr. Ripley and The End of the Affair," Gossip Girl executive producer Josh Safran told TVGuide.com. "We knew were going to tell this story."

Timothy Olyphant

Let's raise a glass of "apple pie" moonshine in honor of the dearly departed Justified villain Mags Bennett. Margo Martindale's Emmy-winning portrayal was a huge part of what made the Southern-fried FX drama's second season such a thrilling ride and will no doubt be a tough act to follow. And executive producer Graham Yost knows it.

Ricky Gervais' 10 Best and Worst Golden Globe Jabs

Ricky Gervais, The 2012 Golden Globe Awards

Was Ricky Gervais holding back this year? Hosting the Golden Globes for the third time, the comedian opened Sunday's awards show by ribbing Eddie Murphy for pulling out as Oscar host ("When the man who said yes to Norbit says no to you, you know you're in trouble") and NBC for being America's third-place network (oh, actually, fourth).

He did get in a few zingers. His five best jabs were aimed at:

His own manhood -- "No profanity: That's fine, I've got a huge vocabulary. No nudity: See that's a shame because I've got a huge [pause] vocabulary. But a... read more

Bones

Oh, baby! They are two of TV's most anticipated occasions — the births of Booth and Brennan's daughter on Bones and Marshall and Lily's son on How I Met Your Mother. I talked to the expectant parents at the People's Choice Awards to get the scoop on both blessed events.

The arrival of Baby Bones will happen soon after the Fox drama returns this spring. "There's a horse, a farm and a lot of wine involved," teases David Boreanaz. "There's some trauma that happens that may twist the series a bit." Lightening the mood for David... read more

FX Boss on Working with the "New" Charlie Sheen, Plans for Season 2 of American Horror Story

Charlie Sheen, Jessica Lange

How much does FX President and General Manager John Landgraf know about his network's upcoming Charlie Sheen comedy Anger Management? Something he calls "a snippet of a story line."

The show, a loose adaptation of the 2003 Adam Sandler-Jack Nicholson movie of the same name, will premiere in June. FX executives have yet to see a single script, but Landgraf said he was convinced by a good idea pitched in part by the kinder, gentler Sheen seen over the last couple of months on something of a media mea culpa tour. read more
