[WARNING: The following story contains major spoilers from Tuesday's episode of Person of Interest. Read at your own risk.]
The brain trust behind Person of Interest promised a hero would fall — it just wasn't exactly the hero some might have expected.
Although the promos for the CBS drama's three-part "Endgame" trilogy heavily suggested that Kevin Chapman's Fusco wouldn't make it out alive, Tuesday's episode pulled a switcheroo...

Do you know how next week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. connects to Thor: The Dark World? — Dirk
NATALIE: If you haven't yet seen Thor: The Dark World, you may want to put that on your to-do list this weekend or you might be a little lost during next week's episode. "The story centers around an Asgardian relic," Brett Dalton tells me. "As for how it affects the team ... I'm hoping it gives me Chris Hemsworth arms." Seconded.
Is it too soon to ask for scoop on The Following? Will Claire be back this season? — Jessica
ADAM: Natalie Zea's role remains a bit of a question mark, especially given the Comic-Con teaser footage that suggests a grim fate for Claire. Another bad sign?
Kevin Chapman, Jim Caviezel
Is Person of Interest about to lose one of its team members?
The CBS drama sent fans into a frenzy last week when it released a teaser trailer to promote a three-episode arc that begins with Tuesday's episode "Endgame." The clip suggests the death of a one of the core cast members, with most of the evidence pointing to Kevin Chapman's Fusco. But there's got to be some kind of twist, right? ...

Following a repeat of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Goldbergs drew 5.4 million viewers and a 1.7 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic ...
Today's history lesson: You shouldn't always believe what you hear. Long before TV, let alone social media like Twitter and Facebook, the medium of radio held sway over the public consciousness — and more to the point, the collective imagination — in a way that now seems hard for many to fathom. One visionary who understood its potential and power was Orson Welles, "prodigy and provocateur," who at the astonishingly precocious age of 23 triggered a Halloween eve panic in 1938 with his innovative and infamous CBS Radio adaptation of H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds.
