Ask Matt: Deaths on Homeland and Sons, the Globes, Nikita, Doctor Who

Homeland

Question: [RETROACTIVE SPOILER ALERT FOR THOSE NOT KEEPING UP] I'm watching Homeland and Sons of Anarchy more out of habit than passion these days, after what I thought were disappointing seasons for both. But even so, I was startled when their seasons ended on such grim notes in December, with the violent deaths of major characters. Which surprised you more: Brody's execution as Carrie bore witness on Homeland or Tara's brutal murder at Gemma's hands on Sons? Or did you see each of these events as inevitable? On the same note, which show do you think is better positioned to bounce back from these game-changers, or did they maybe (and I know you hate the expression) jump the shark? — Cass

What's the scoop on Nashville? Is someone really going to die? — Janet
ADAM:
It sure seems that way. But don't expect to know exactly who at the end of Wednesday's midseason finale. That's because the person displaying the tell-tale signs of impending TV death — including drastic, dangerous behavior — could be a bait-and-switch. In possibly related news, Juliette's attempt to profess her love for Avery will be suddenly cut short.

Wednesday Review: Mob City, Kristie, Arrow's Flash-y Newbie

Ed Burns

A deluxe if derivative wallow in crime awaits viewers of TNT's Mob City (Wednesday, 9/8c) a six-hour primer in film noir attitude from The Walking Dead's Frank Darabont that's as sleek as the brilliantine in "fixer" Milo Ventimiglia's impeccably styled hair. Saturated in neon hues and evocative shadows, this limited-run series (airing in two-hour blocks over three Wednesdays) is gorgeous to behold even when it lays on the noir trappings awfully thick.
