If you don't worship at the altar of Shonda Rhimes, you've likely found yourself lost in a conversation more than once.

Scandal scoop, please! I can't believe Olivia is gone again! — Beth
You and me both! Even though Liv obviously didn't leave by choice this time, don't be surprised by the profundity of Fitz's desperation as he debates whether to go to war with West Angola to save her. "It will potentially destroy Fitz again," Tony Goldwyn tells us. "How much more can a man take? This will really test him. The stakes are unbelievably high and I can say that it will be scary."

Any Hawaii Five-0 intel? — Chris
Did you think that the show forgot that Danny killed his brother's murderer? Nope. "There's going to be a price to pay for what [Danny] did," executive producer Peter Lenkov says... read more

Ask Matt: Elementary, Selfie's Fallen Star, Murder, Sleepy Hollow, Sons of Anarchy, and More

Question: I've been a fan of Elementary, and I really liked the story arc last season with Rhys Ifans playing Mycroft. His involvement with Watson, moving to New York, opening the restaurant, concealing from everyone that he was MI6: The whole season seemed to give a fresh twist to the Sherlock history and move it forward. This season, however, with Kitty (Ophelia Lovibond), I'm not getting what the writers are doing. I think she's beyond boring, probably because she has no real reason to be there, and she's splintering the energy I used to feel between Sherlock and Watson, and each of them to Bell and Gregson. None of the episodes this year has grabbed me. Is it just me? Do they have a story arc buried in there someplace I can't see? I'd rather they go back to a crime-of-the-week if they can't do better than this. I love your column, by the way! I can't believe how long it took me to find it, but now I never miss it. — Kay

Scandal's Joe Morton: Rowan Isn't "Un-Killable" — But Will Olivia Take the Kill Shot?

Joe Morton

There are three certainties in life: Death, taxes and Papa Pope having the last laugh.

"He always finds a way!" Joe Morton tells TVGuide.com of his Scandal super-villain. "One of the joys of playing the character is people love to hate him. People say to me all the time on Twitter, 'Love the way you play the role. Don't like the character,' which is perfect. You want his demise, but at the same time, it's wonderful the way he manages to evade all this stuff. How is he going to get out of this again?"

Question: Thanks for being the voice of reason in the sometimes crazy cluttered world of TV. You're the only person I trust to tell me if I'm overreacting. Because I'm starting to think Shonda Rhimes is getting away with murder. I have been watching her newest "TGIT" hit How To Get Away With Murder, and I realized the other day that it's always sitting in my DVR waiting for me. That's usually the first sign for me that something is not right. I feel like I should love the show. ... read more

Ask Matt: In Praise of Walking Dead's Carol, Scandal's Mellie, Face Off, ABC's Wed Comedies, Gotham

Melissa McBride

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I thought this might be the year when The Walking Dead would finally be represented among the Emmy nominations, at the very least for Melissa McBride as supporting actress for last season's devastating "The Grove" episode. But the noms came and went with nary a Dead mention. I thought this show was among the most-watched basic cable shows, often posting numbers to rival some of the highest-rated broadcast programs every week. I know that its genre is already one strike against it, but is this show also a victim of its own success regarding recognition, where the more popular a show is, the more it provokes attitudes from voters that "normal" people might see as snobbish or anti-populist? While it's true that the dispersal of everybody into smaller groups during the second half of last season was seen as less than successful, and the quality this season appears to have roared back with a vengeance, I'm still thinking there will probably be no difference next year, recognition-wise.

Bathrobes, Boots and Fried Chicken: Mellie's 14 Stages of Grief on Scandal

Bellamy Young

Everyone grieves in different ways. For Mellie (Bellamy Young) on Scandal, mourning Jerry Jr.'s death involves less denial and anger, and more, well, perhaps Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) said it best: "I have dealt with drunk Mellie, smelly Mellie, screw-everything-to-hell Mellie, eat-everything-that-is-not-nailed-down Mellie. And I have not complained."

We're not complaining either; Mellie may be hurting, but she sure is entertaining. Below, we've listed her 14 stages of grief, in all their dirty, lounging, snacking glory. Don't worry, Mel. We'll get through this together.
