14. Best Power Move: Annie finally kills Henry on Covert Affairs in an empty alleyway in Hong Kong, but the biggest game-changer comes halfway around the world. Back at Langley, Calder is nominated to fill the vacant DCS seat, at least temporarily, after Braithwaite's suicide. Though hesitant to accept it at first because he doesn't want to overstep on Joan, who's just...
Revenge's Daniel Grayson has been imprisoned, repeatedly betrayed, replaced in his mother's heart by a brother he didn't know existed, and now his new wife has been shot — which leaves a mentally exhausted Josh Bowman wondering if enough's enough.

Almost Human got off to a strong start Sunday.
Benefiting from a football lead-in, the sci-fi drama drew 9.1 million viewers and a 3.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the top-rated series of the night and Fox's second-best debut this season after Sleepy Hollow. Lead-outs The Simpsons (4.1 million, 1.8) and Family Guy (4.3 million, 2.2) were flat ...

Question: I started watching Scandal from the start, when it was simply a problem-of-the-week plot mixed in with a little soap opera with Olivia and the President. They lost me a little bit last year when they temporarily dropped that element to completely focus on the soap opera element when the president was shot. With the addition of the B613 storyline (and possible new Harrison storyline), I feel the show has lost its focus. I was highly enjoying Lisa Kudrow's story and performance only to have the show dragged down by B613's machinations and apparent manipulation of Quinn. I get the fear the show could be the political Love Boat where the guest stars get all the meaty storylines, but I watch shows like Strike Back for my spy action and adventure. Have these writers learned nothing from the mistakes countless shows including Alias and recently Revenge have made with these over-the-top secret maniacal agencies? — Brian

In a glass-framed Palos Verdes, Calif., chapel on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the cast of ABC's Revenge has gathered for the wedding of Emily Rebecca Thorne (Emily VanCamp) and Daniel Edward Grayson (Josh Bowman), which will air on the Dec. 15 midseason finale. "From the moment we met, I knew this was in our destiny," the bride tells her betrothed in front of a congregation that includes best man Conrad (Henry Czerny) and maid of honor Charlotte (Christa B. Allen). "Thanks for letting me into your life...into your family. Today we share a bond that's unbreakable. Till death parts us..."
Wow! I never saw that coming. On the Nov. 17 episode of Revenge, Amber Valletta's Lydia Davis returned from the dead after presumably perishing in a plane crash at the end of Season 1. Turns out no one was more surprised that Valletta, who was given no indication that Lydia would ever return after shooting her last episode in early 2012.

After improvements last week, ABC's whole lineup hit lows on Sunday.
