Question: From the moment Cyrus elected (pun intended) not to let anyone else in on the bomb threat to the final silliness of Olivia and Jake wending skyward on daddy's jet, the Scandal finale was all the usual over-the-top perfection Gladiators have come to love and expect from Shonda Rhimes when she's operating at the top of her "a little too much is not enough" game. Nice homage to the Keyser Söze reveal from The Usual Suspects at the end. Sorry Columbus Short got offed; perhaps if his character had been given a real reel life I'd miss him more, but that was one of the flaws in the mostly great/outlandish storytelling that truly bugged this fangirl. I know it was a rush from plot point to plot point, but I'm willing to accept the pregnancy as a legitimate excuse for the end-of-season, roller rink stop-and-go, punch in the face/gut action. And what a nice sendoff for Joe Morton! Now let's see how Rhimes gets Olivia back in the game. Who's she gonna play with now? This could be a signal that there are new players, yet to be named. And how in the expletive deleted are they (Ms. Rhimes and Ms. Pope) gonna top that?! — McKenzie

She first outmaneuvers his romantic re-proposal by throwing a party ...

Do you know why Col. Glenn Talbot is joining Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? — Pauley
With Coulson & Co. on the run, Talbot will be tasked with tracking them down. And it doesn't sound like he has friendly plans for our heroes should he catch them. "Longtime Marvel fans know that he's been a nemesis to anything that's organized," executive producer Jeph Loeb tells me. "I love the fact that [Adrian Pasdar] referred to him as a world-class jerk. [Our] Talbot continues that tradition."
Is Charlie going to die on Revolution?! — Hayley
These promos don't look promising, do they? Allow executive producer Rockne S. O'Bannon to throw more gasoline on the fire...
The Walking Dead set a new finale ratings record Sunday.
The Season 4 closer drew 15.7 million viewers, with 10.2 million in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. Though the figures are down from the show's all-time high (16.1 million and 10.4 million for its Season 4 premiere), the fourth ...
