Our top moments of the week:
14. Worst Exit: Controversial Jeopardy! winner Arthur Chu's 12-day winning streak comes to an abrupt end when he answers the final Jeopardy! question with the name of the wrong member of the British royal family: George II, instead of the correct of George VI. Chu walks away with just $1,000 for his third-place finish, but something tells us he'll make do just fine with the other $299,000 he now has in the bank.
13. Best Hidden Treasures: When cleaning out the garage on Trophy Wife, Kate discovers the videos from Pete's weddings to Diane and Jackie, and each video is just as hilarious and dated as one would hope. In the first video — which, natch, takes place on that infamous day in 1994 when O.J. Simpson took a very long drive in his Ford Bronco — perfectionist Diane, wearing a veil with a crown, brags about graduating first in her class. In the second video, a much more relaxed Pete, clad in a goatee and a poncho, serenades Jackie with his take on The Bangles' "Eternal Flame," complete with Pete banging on a bongo. Now we get why Pete and Kate met at a karaoke bar!
12. Best Curveball: After making a dirty deal with an illegal gambling club on Law & Order: SVU, Det. Rollins seems as if she is going off the deep end. She points a gun directly at the female club owner's pregnant belly and demands $1 million and transportation out of the country. When the hostage's unborn baby starts to kick, Rollins gets distracted and is hit in the face by the owner's lackey, Declan. Declan is told to kill Rollins, but then he turns the guns on the owner and her baby daddy and reveals himself to be an NYPD detective. Nice to have friends in high (and legal) places!
11. Best Break: On Suits, Mike decides to come clean to Louis, who has brought in Harvard professor Henry Gerard to confirm or deny that he gave Mike a rare A+ in his class. But when Mike approaches the two, Louis, who just had a conversation with Harvey about not selling out friends, abruptly interrupts Mike, scolds him for not getting his work done and says that he can't attend Gerard's lecture in the office. "Louis, I'm sorry," Mike says, before walking away. Has Louis really dropped this for good? Something tells us no.
10. Best Leg Up: On Hannibal, our favorite cannibal gourmand tracks down a serial killer who has arranged his victims' bodies into a mural resembling a giant eye. "I love your work," Hannibal tells the killer... before helping him to complete his masterpiece by adding his body to the center of the mural. Even in death, the artist-killer reciprocates the favor by donating a key ingredient to Hannibal's latest culinary masterpiece: a human leg braised a la ossobucco.
9. Best Reveal: Thor heroine Lady Sif teaming up with the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. isn't even the coolest part of this week's episode. No, it's the reveal that Melinda May has been informing on Coulson since the beginning of their partnership. We witness her telling HQ that he's discovered that an alien was the source of the miracle drug that saved both him and Skye: "He knows. I repeat, Coulson knows."
8. Worst Decision: Layla and Will on Nashville are having a few problems in the bedroom — probably because Will is gay. So, what's the best solution? After Layla attempts to spice things up with a sex toy to no avail (side note: we seriously want to know what was in that bag), Will gets even more uncomfortable when a fan unknowingly brings up his high school bandmate/boyfriend. Rather than just come out of the closet, Will decides to make the grand gesture of renting out a theater and proposing to Layla on stage. Oof. These guys aren't going to live happily ever after — but Layla will probably get some great songs out of this disaster waiting to happen.
7. Best Kept Secret: It turns out Lily can keep a secret. On How I Met Your Mother, the Mosby Boys figure out that Lily went to The Captain's after her fight with Marshall. Ted suspects that Lily had been secretly smoking and hid a cigarette butt in The Captain's daisy plant in his powder room, but when he digs into the plant, he pulls out... a pregnancy test! Yup, Lily's pregnant! And she and Marshall do go to Rome, where they're still living in 2015 with Marvin, Lily's dad, Marshall's mom and their baby girl Daisy. Oh, and Funyuns, of course.
6. Best Tribute, Part I: Late Simpsons voice actor Marcia Wallace, who passed away in October, gets the last laugh when the show retires her character, Mrs. Edna Krabappel, in a touching final scene. In the episode, Edna and her husband, the Simpson family's longtime neighbor Ned Flanders, hit the floor for a romantic dance. As Edna lets out her signature "Ha!" laugh, the screen pans out to show that Ned is dreaming. Wearing a black armband and looking longingly at her photograph, he says, "Sure do miss that laugh" before school bully Nelson Muntz walks by the window, gives his own signature laugh, and adds, "I miss her too." So do we.
5. Worst Excess Baggage: Lindsay Lohan is sad, you guys. But while LiLo deals with her emotional baggage, she also has to contend with her literal baggage. Her OWN series Lindsay begins with the troubled starlet sorting through all the crap she's accumulated over the years, which is a not-so-subtle foreshadowing of what's in store for viewers at home. As Lindsay discovers relics from her past ("Elizabeth Taylor stuff," a Fetch t-shirt, couture gowns on mannequins, what remains of her jewelry after the Bling Ring burglary) we're reminded of just how far LiLo's fallen and just how unlikely it is she'll ever begin to get things together again. Schadenfreude at its best.
4. Worst Cliff-Hanger: Scandal takes another character down the rabbit hole, as new B613 leader Jake tricks those involved with Publius to meet with him so he could kill them all. After shooting the White House reporter and the woman who found the original tape implicating Cyrus and Sally, Jake levels his gun at both David and James before firing. But who is shot?! And why does everyone have to be a murderer on this show?!
3. Best Tribute, Part II: When New Directions competes in Nationals on Glee, the young singers pay homage to their former glee club co-director Finn (and the late Cory Monteith) again by performing a medley of his favorite songs. As Finn's mom and stepdad watch (and tear up) from the audience, several flashbacks to Finn's most memorable scenes (when he first sang in the locker room showers, when he cried to Mr. Schue about his unborn baby, when he was getting ready to marry Rachel) are intercut into the portion where they sing U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For. The moving performance ends on a triumphant note as the singers hold their arms up in the air, and Sam grasps Finn's beloved drumsticks.
2. Worst Boyfriend: On The Bachelor's live After the Final Rose special, Juan Pablo continues his quest to go down as the most reviled Bachelor ever, when he dismisses runner-up Clare's dramatic exit and his treatment of her with his usual blithe "es OK" attitude. He gets even more defensive and infuriating when he refuses to acknowledge that he had done anything wrong on the show. When host Chris Harrison asks why Juan Pablo hasn't said "I love you" to his chosen lady Nikki yet, he responds, "I'm not going to answer that question. We are done with this show. We are so done." And we're thankful that we are so done with you, Juan Pablo.
1. Best Bromance: Who would have thought True Detective would have a happy ending? After 17 years, Marty Hart and Rust Cohle track down Dora Lange's murderer and, after a battle in his labyrinthine hideout "Carcosa," both men escape severely wounded but alive. As they recover in the hospital, their once fractured partnership repairs itself to the point that, after hearing Rust's sad story about not being able to join his daughter in the afterlife just yet, Marty actually helps sneak Rust out of the hospital. But before they ride off into the sunset, there is time for one final debate about good and evil. As they look at the stars, Marty suggests that darkness has the stronghold, but Rust has finally adopted a more optimistic view. "Once there was only dark," he says. "You ask me, the light's winning."
