FTW vs. WTF: The TV Week in Review (May 11-17)

Well, we've survived the Upfronts and all that came with 'em: boatloads of renewals and cancellations, series pickups and passes, elaborate PowerPoint presentations and network executives spouting terrible jokes that couldn't make a stoned hyena laugh. And while we were compiling this week's FTWs and WTFs, we were mostly wondering WTH when it it all going to end? Especially because this week also brought the season finales of many shows, and it seemed like the madness would go on forever. But now it's the weekend, and we can finally catch a breath. *breathes* Okay, back to television. Here's what we liked and didn't like about the last seven days in small-screen shenanigans; check out our list, then share your own FTWs and WTFs in the comments!


SPOILER WARNING: If you haven't finished watching this week's new episodes (of Hannibal, S.H.I.E.L.D., Arrow, etc.), we suggest that you hold off on reading this story until you do. 





FTW:

The Dinklage!


Game of Thrones ended "The Laws of God and Men" with a lengthy scene that put Tyrion Lannister on trial for the murder of Joffrey Baratheon, and as the proceedings devolved into a witch hunt and a guilty verdict seemed more and more likely, Tyrion became more and more exasperated. But when Shae came out to testify against him, Tyrion lost it—and actor Peter Dinklage cranked up the intensity with a rousing, angry performance that saw him wishing death on all of King's Landing. If Dinklage gets an Emmy nod this year, it'll be this clip that voters will watch. 


FTW:

O.M.G. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ripped a dude's rib out and stabbed him with it

The first season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was not without (plenty of) faults, but the final six episodes were exciting and fun as the series found its footing in the wake of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The season finale didn't answer many questions, choosing to leave many of its mysteries unresolved until next season, but it did provide us with one of our new favorite ways to kill someone! Garrett, after being injected with GH325, ripped out a guy's rib and then stabbed him with it. How disgusting and cool is that? 


FTW:

Hannibal's (hilarious) de-facing of Mason Verger


Speaking of disgusting... lotta gross stuff went down this week, eh? But none were as simultaneously funny and stomach-churning as Michael Pitt slicing off most of his face and feeding it to some dogs, then surgically removing and eating his own nose before declaring, "I'm full of myself!"


FTW:

Nashville is the soapy gift that keeps on giving 

In Wednesday's Season 2 finale, Will admitted to Layla that he was gay while a hidden reality-show camera recorded the confession; Juliette vomited on her own hair after getting wasted and struggling to deal with her guilt over cheating on Avery; Gunnar sang Scarlett the song he wrote for her and told her she should stay in Nashville; and Rayna was proposed to not once, but twice. The first request for her hand came from Luke, who got down on one knee after a concert and asked her to marry him in front of a huge audience, and then the second was delivered by Deacon, who showed up late at night and recited a touching speech about how he's finally become the man Rayna's always deserved. What is it with that woman? She got beer-flavored nipples or something?


FTW:

The 100 proves that everything is relative

Clarke met with the leader of the Grounders (Dichen Lachman!) this week to arrange a truce before the first ship full of soldiers arrived from the Ark, and as is becoming its wont, The 100 flipped what we thought we knew on its head. The show had been treating the Hundred as the victims of Grounder violence, but "Unity Day" suggested that the Grounders were the real victims, and suddenly we don't know which way is up and which way is down. Well played, writers.


FTW:

NBC finally does the right thing and kills its legacy comedy block


NBC's Thursday-night laugh fest is was a cultural touchstone, but it's been rapidly dying for half a decade. Thankfully, after a strong performance elsewhere this season, NBC finally—FINALLY—chose to blow up its Thursday schedule for 2014-2015. The 47th edition of The Biggest Loser isn't a great solution, but moving massive hit The Blacklist to Thursdays at 9pm in February gives the Peacock a chance to compete on the most important night of the week. It might be the move that truly brings the network back.


FTW:

The Originals ends its first season with plenty of Hope for the future


The freshman Vampire Diaries spin-off brought back a familiar face for its finale, as the dearly departed Rebekah returned to take custody of Klaus's newborn daughter. It wasn't so much a surprise twist as it was a cathartic, impossibly moving moment that crystallized everything we love about this show. Yes, The Originals will survive without Rebekah, but bringing her back for this explicit purpose both honored her and permanently enmeshed her presence into the series, even though we might not see her again for a very long time.


FTW:

Sarah Baker's heavy conversation with Louie


The actress you may remember from NBC's short-lived Go On stopped by the FX series this week and proved Louis C.K.'s penchant for arranging great guest visits as Vanessa, a woman who persistently asked Louie out with scads of charm and humor. In the stirring scene above, the pair discussed what it's like to be overweight in the dating world; with its incredible acting, camerawork, and dialogue, it's one of the best moments you'll see on TV all year.


FTW:

Person of Interest wraps up another season with plenty of uncertainty and paranoia


The CBS drama is getting pretty damned good at this finale thing, with the Season 3 ender completing the penultimate episode's kangaroo court session, killing a couple bad guys we loved to hate, dismantling our team of heroes, and leaving us looking over our shoulder in fear of who—or what—is watching us. Samaritan is online, and now it's in charge. This is television's most prescient show, hands down. 


FTW:

ABC goes full Shonda on Thursdays 

Just in case you forgot that Shonda Rhimes, creator of Grey's Anatomy and Scandal, almost singlehandedly keeps the lights on at ABC, the network made the big—and smart—decision to go all Shonda shows, all the time on Thursdays for the 2014-2015 season. Moving both Grey's Anatomy and Scandal up an hour is going to be interesting. Will the shows have to tone down their stories at all? Can they serve as a solid counterprogramming to CBS's NFL coverage? Regardless, the shift means that Shonda's new show, How to Get Away with Murder, will have every chance to succeed, and almost certainly will. By 2016, ABC will probably be considering a second Shonda Rhimes programming block. 


FTW:

Alex Trebeck and some white dudes talk '90s hip-hop


OMG we could watch this all day. 


FTW:

Zachary Levi and Sesame Street sweetly remind us that our television screens can't provide us with Vitamin D


BRB gonna go take a walk.




FTWTF:

Revenge finally made good on its revengeda, but at a cost

We're not mourning the loss of Aiden, no way, but we ARE traumatized by the reappearance of David Clarke. Not only is Emily's father still alive (and a free man, now that he's been cleared of bombing Flight 187), but he orchestrated Conrad's escape from prison only to knife him on a secluded road where no one is likely to find him for awhile. Say it ain't so! Revenge won't be the same without Conrad... but at least we still have Victoria, we guess?


FTWTF:

The collapsing other side brings back [SPOILER] on The Vampire Diaries, continues to subvert the emotional impact of death

It's hard to talk about anything else that happened in Thursday's finale because Alaric is back (!!!!), but after five years of this show, all the deaths, revivals, and not-deaths are wearing pretty thin. Season 5 closed strong and the final episode spent quite a bit of time trying to convince us that Bonnie and Damon's inability to make it back to the land of the living REALLY MATTERED, but we've been down this road a couple hundred times before. 


FTWTF:

How did it take this long for Don to have a threesome on Mad Men? Also: The instantly infamous "nip snip"


Megan Draper's totally reasonable jealousy took her to irrational places this week but it left us wondering how 10 years have transpired in the world of Mad Men before Don was able to charm the underpants off two girls at once. 

Also, the mental health of the SC&P ranks is perhaps in need of attention, no? It hasn't been all that long since Lane Pryce died, and now the show is making cute of the fact that one of Ginsberg went crazy and CUT OFF HIS OWN NIPPLE? Parts of "The Runaways" was entertaining, to be sure, but, uh, where's the show going with some of this stuff?


FTWTF:

Arrow's Season 2 finale wrapped up two seasons' worth of story and (cruelly) toyed with Olicity shippers' hearts


"Unthinkable"  featured fisticuffs, snapped necks, and momentous decisions that will likely propel Arrow to new narrative heights next season with Oliver more resolved to be a hero than ever, the flashbacks shifting away from the island, and Thea joining Malcolm (played by the freshly-promoted-to-series-regular John Barrowman) for who knows what sort of bizarre father-daughter bonding experiences. The finale also lifted up Olicity shippers' hopes as Oliver confessed his love for Felicity, only to crush them by revealing that his affection was as a ploy to get Felicity close enough to Slade to bring him down from his mirakuru high. There's no need for that kind of trolling, show!




WTF:

ABC puts zero promotion behind Trophy Wife, it fails, is canceled; Last Man Standing is renewed


How dare you, ABC. We'll miss you, Bert.


WTF:

Does Fox really have to go through with a sixth season for Glee?


Once a foundation of the network's schedule, the high-school musical is now rubble. This week's Season 5 finale hit a series low in the ratings, drawing 1.87 million viewers and a 0.6 rating among adults 18 to 49. That's way down from last season's finale, which drew almost 6 million viewers. Not only was "The Untitled Rachel Berry Project" the hottest of messes, it couldn't even beat The CW's The Originals, which notched a 0.8 in the important demo and almost surpassed Glee in total viewers with 1.76. And with a much better episode, too. But Glee still has another season left? Ugh.


WTF:

Castle's big wedding goes down in flames


Gee, there's nothing like a "cliffhanger" that pretends a show's namesake might actually die. We're not even that upset that we didn't get didn't get to see Castle and Beckett say their vows; what really has us burning mad is that the Season 6 finale's fiery ending seemed a bit sloppy and slapdash, don't you think? We expected better.     


WTF:

Key & Peele discuss ending Key & Peele


In an interview with LA Weekly, Jordan Peele said, "If our show if to have any kind of legacy, it should be that it didn't go on too long." While we understand the desire to go out on top and the creative exhaustion that can set in quickly with a sketch show, Key & Peele is too good to say goodbye just yet. Don't pull a Chappelle on us yet, you two!


What's on YOUR list of TV loves and hates this week? Sandra Oh's exit from Grey's Anatomy? Jeanne Tripplehorn's exit from Criminal MindsOnce Upon a Time's unwillingness to let the Disney synergy go? Grimm's Season 3 finale? Share your own FTWs and WTFs in the comments!

I used to love Glee, then I started to hate-watch it. Now it's just "why bother"? I get that the death of Cory/Finn derailed the main storyline but I feel like every character is out-of-character every episode. I just don't care about any of them anymore. Which is sad. Glee jumped the gun on Rachel getting to Broadway. The series should have culminated in her big debut, not midway through season 5- then she gets bored with it?! WTF indeed!

WTF - Glee for sure. The show used to be good, and have so much potential but it's to bad that it's wasted and just manages to piss me off.

FTW: Mary wearing red, and looking stunning as usual, at French Court in a fantastic freshman season finale on 'Reign' that had everything. The tv gods will not be satisfied unless the actor who played the main character that died gets rewarded come Emmy night in September. Peter Dinklage is going to need some competition in his category and I can't find any reason why it shouldn't be Alan Van Sprang who's 'King Henry II' will not soon be forgotten. Kudos to ever single person involved in the production of this diamond that shone a little brighter than anything on network television and especially brighter than anything on its network home.

FTW: Helena and Sarah giving us the best 'Peaches and Herb' moment of the season on 'Orphan Black'. Reunited and it feels sooo good... Seestra. Anyone who thought we'd seen everything this phenomenon Tatiana Maslany was capable of producing as an actress in these roles were mistaken. The scene from this week with Rachel making Paul satisfy her with Helena across the street being talked out of assassinating Rachel by a teary Sarah who is still trying to make sense of her sister being alive was absolutely amazing. She's playing 3 characters in two rooms with only one other actor in each scene and its completely mesmerizing. Also have to mention how awesome Jordan Gavaris is as 'Felix'. The only thing better than multiple Maslany characters in a scene is any scene with Gavaris. Veeeery interested in seeing the return of Vic, in rehab with Allison, next week. (Now all BBC America needs to do to keep me happy is announce that they really didn't cancel 'Copper'.)

FTW: Thea getting into the limo with dad (John Barrowman!!!) at the end of 'Arrow's second season. 'Evil Thea'?? Yes please. So much awesome Felicity stuff as well - the best part may have been seeing the look in Katrina Law's eyes, 'Nyssa Al Ghul', when checking out and introducing herself to 'Felicity'. Who really needs the boys on this show anyway? The girls, with one big exception, are quite excellent on their own.


WTF: After putting the close on another superb season with one of the most uniquely excellent casts on television Jim Jefferies, Dan Bakkendahl, DJ Qualls, Mindy Sterling, and John Ratzenburger - FX decided to pull the plug on a great show when they canceled 'Legit'. Big mistake. Network comedies like to say they have a 'heart'; none were as big as the one on this show. This cancellation news sucked the most.

FTW: 'Salem' ... I liked 'AHS: Coven' this season quite a bit but this show is a lot smarter and a lot better. WGN America made a very good selection to start its original programming slate with.

That's from the first Captain America movie. She is the actress that played the British Secret Service agent that worked with Cap. It's also his love interest in the movie. In the Winter Soldier she was the old lady who's bedside Chris Evans visited in the nursing home. No idea why she's on the front page though.

OK, I thought so. But she was listed on the front page for Fall Previews.

So I thought I'd completely missed an announcement about a Cap series or that she was going to star on SHIELD or something.

FTW:
Agents of Shield: The FitzSimmons scene! May vs. Ward. Garrett the robot. Director Coulson. The whole thing was just great!
The Americans: "I even love your toupee." pause.... "You knew about that...?" Hilarious!
Revenge: Vicky's in the mental ward!! Ems got some kick-ass revenge in that finale. Aiden's dead! Woohoo!
The Originals: What an incredible finale. Every single one of those actors knocked it out of the park this week, and the cherry on top was the return of Rebekah, just in time to be forgiven by Klaus and get a small piece of everything she's ever wanted! Perfection. Plus, Mikael and Ester are back, and possibly Finn too? S2 will be awesome!
TVD: Alaric's back and Enzo is sticking around! The Wonder twins made it out alive. (Love them!) Death may or may not mean something on this show from now on?
In the Flesh: It's back and better than ever! Someone should show The Walking Dead how a zombie drama should be done.
Louie: Perfection, as always. Just the right amount of cringe mixed with comedy.

WTF:
Revenge: They killed Conrad? He was such a great villain! And David Clarke's alive? Way to undermine your whole premise, show.
TVD: Silas came back? Ugh. Lexi didn't come back? Double Ugh. Tyler's still alive? Oh come on!
The promise of a Caroline-Stefan-Elena triangle next season is also WTF not to mention the fact that Bonnie is still not permanently gone. I've heard rumblings of "Bamon" and "Melena" which also makes me feel ill. Is it not time to retire the triangles in the show? Is it not a bit much to have a small group of friends all dating each other in intervals after the age of 14? Half the group even went off to college. Date outside your "family" dammit!
Penny Dreadful: Couldn't get past the credits. That's way too many close ups of spiders for me. And from what I understand, it didn't get much better in the actual show. NOPE!

- Agents of Shield. Specifically the "Upgrade Fake Out" Garrett had after his defeat. We gonna get a crazed Robo Garrett? NOPE! No season 2 for you, Bill Paxton! Also, Agent May got to kick Ward's ass, though I'm disappointed that she hit him everywhere EXCEPT his crotch, since she slept with him multiple times and Hell Hath No Fury like that of a woman scorned.

- Person of Interest going all Terminator 3 on the US. I'm hoping Season 4 will be after a time skip, where every threat to the US is dead and Samaritan decides that if there are no villains left, it should invent some... the US government that decided it was a good idea to kill its own citizens in the name of security.

-Arrow having a spectacular final fight between Slade and Oliver. THIS is how final battles are done, not just having the heroes and Big Bad stand around talking to each other until the Big Bad gets shot by his own soldier. (Sorry Agents of Shield)

- The CW aborting the Supernatural: Bloodlines concept. The backdoor pilot sucked and tossed years of shapeshifter mythos away, so it's a good call. Hopefully the next time they decide to make a sequel, it'll be about someone we care about... provided anyone besides Sam, Dean, and Cas LIVE after Season 10. (more on that later)

FTW/WTF
-The Blacklist season finale. As always, James Spader was SUPERB, but Liz once again acted like a dumbass and got captured by Tom, leading to a rather anticlimactic final struggle between the two of them and Tom "dying." Also, Meera got killed by a Russian. You remember Meera, right? The other female member of Liz's team who didn't do anything except give exposition. Bye, character we have no invested interest in! On the plus side, we have more reason to believe Red is Liz's father due to burn marks on his back and we have a Big Bad for Season 2... Berlin! So it all evened out, right? Let's hope Liz can be more self-sufficient next season.

-Elementary's season finale. The acting was superb and I thoroughly enjoyed Mycroft's final show of affection toward Sherlock (hugging him mid rant and telling him he loved him.) but DAMN the resolution to the Mycroft arc was disappointing. [Spoilers] The final villain of the season is killed offscreen and Mycroft TELLS us what happened instead of SHOWING us through shaky flashbacks.We don't even get a hint that Mycroft my have killed the guy... one scene is the villain threatening Mycroft at a restaurant (which eerily resembled the "lunch date" Moriarty and Watson had in season 1's finale. The writers seem to like the "Big Bad Threatens Secondary Character in a Crowded Restaurant" trope, don't they?) and BOOM, villain's dead and no hints to how he died other than a gunshot wound. Also, Holmes and Watson spend a great deal of time AWAY from the main case and solve a secondary case involving a man who turned out to be stoned to death with the patented "ass-pull solution" the first season was NOTORIOUS for. The show is a lot better than season 1... why are we making the same mistakes?

Big Bang Theory and Sheldon's reaction to the big change ups. Yes, I understand that Sheldon is a lover of a strict routine and I get him being overwhelmed with Penny and Leonard getting engaged and Leonard wanting a place for just them, not being able to change his field of study, as well as the gut punch of losing his "sanctuary" the comic book store. Sheldon needing to leave for a while to process it is a reasonable solution, but HOW he did it got on my nerves. He pretty much threw an episode-long tantrum and I have a feeling him leaving is less about him going to find himself and more about him betting that the characters will miss him, beg him to come back, and agree to any terms he wants. But at least he didn't singlehandedly break up Penny and Leonard's engagement! Also, the gang celebrating Raj getting laid over Penny and Leonard's engagement irked me as well. Raj was never a virgin. Hell, three of the four nerds were non-virgins by the time the show BEGAN! (Sheldon's the only virgin of the nerds) The gang shouldn't be that excited that Raj got laid. Still, I hope that puts to rest once and for all the "Ambiguously Gay" trait Raj has had since forever. It got old after two seasons, and was REALLY annoying after season 6.

WTF
- Supernatural majorly screwed up the personality of Tessa, the hot Reaper who was supposed to kill Dean in Season 2, and then flat out had her commit suicide with the first blade. Also, the how now seems to think Reapers and Angels are one in the same, whereas we had SEVEN SEASONS of mythos stating that the two entities are completely different, Season 8 gave us the first deviation with the Coyote Reaper, a Reaper who could be seen by a healthy person, despite that Reapers are supposed to only be seen by the dead or near death, but season 9 took the deviant concept and ran with it and now Reapers possess humans, carry angel blades, and can be killed by pretty much anything that can kill an angel, despite the fact that Reapers were created by Death and the only thing that is supposed to kill them is Death's Scythe and possibly the Colt. (Jury's still out on that.) Supernatural, please stick to your mythos, A little deviation is ok if properly explained, but don't go off the rails just so it will fit into the story of the day (coughInsta-Shifterscough)

But never fear for the Swan Queen shippers do get their angst as well.

FTWTF: GRIMM: Monroselle shippers where happy with the wedding but we all saw Truble coming in and crashing the wedding and Nick loses his powers in a strange way.
FTWTF: Elementary: leaves us saying goodbye and really don't come back to Mycroft. Joanlock shippers are upset that Joan wants to move out and get her own place and now we have to worry about the angst of Sherlock signing on to MI6 and pocketing heroine.

FTW to Big Bang Theory getting Raj laid and keeping Penny and Leonard going at least 2 episodes in a row.

WTF to Time Warner for not DVRing Modern Family's part 1 of its 2-part season finale. Wasn't just me, my girlfriend's DVR did the same.

WTF to SVU for yet another ridiculous, over-the-top, awful move by these characters. Was anybody in-character that whole episode besides Finn? And they did prosecute a guy for his thoughts rather than his actions, who is the bad guy on this show???

FTW to Arrow for making Roy interesting enough to tolerate, and also for a chiefly exciting, if occasionally stupid, season finale.

WTF to The Flash teaser and trailer, I know it has a lot of fans but it looked like total dren, and the costume is an eyesore.

FTWTF to Warehouse 13 for extricating us from the big bad of the season and freeing Claire, but also for creating all those same problems not a few episodes ago. It's not like this really was the story Warehouse 13 set out to tell, it's clear they just needed a way to make a big impact upon leaving. Also, just NO to Myka/Pete 'shipping.

FTW to Family Guy for bringing Cleveland back right.

No, sorry, the rib moment wasn't clear enough to warrant a FTW - it may have worked on paper, but in camera it just was a random bloody thing happening.

Poor NBC, they ruined their decades of success and are now being lauded for putting a bullet in their own head.

Trophy Wife wasn't as good as you make it out to be.

Ha, yes, now I finally can agree with you, that Castle cliffhanger was really silly in a painfully soapy way, that was just junk. I would love if the show got suddenly canceled and that was the moment the producers left fans with, just shitting all over them by accident because they wanted to jerk them around and were irresponsible storytellers.

Key and Peele would be smart to get out after 5 or 6 seasons, they were on Mad TV as it went down in flames by running the same ideas too long and it seems they are using wisdom to go the other way. Not WTF to me. That said, 3 seasons wouldn't be enough - but new ideas ARE needed.

In Shield, the best part was Garett's death. The moment when all shows leave the dangling evil-doer for next season, this show unceremoniously blew him to bits in an almost off-hand manner. My wife and I can't stop laughing out loud whenever one of us reminds the other of it.

FTW -
1. Game Of Thrones - Tyrion Lannister owned the episode like never before. And if Peter dinklage do not gets Emmy then I guess all GoT fans would demand trial by combat.
2. Person Of Interest - There are finales and then there is the FINALE like this. This was without doubt one of the very best season finale of any show ever. This show keeps on getting better and better.
3.The Originals - This episode was the perfect way to end this season. And yeah it pretty much also made it clear this show is going to last. Awesome stuff.
4. Hannibal - Even though I have not read the novel but have seen the movie and was waiting for this moment from the very first scene of Mason Verger. And it was gross but still awesome.
5. Arrow - Despite breaking my heart as an Olicity fan Arrow ended an amazing season on quite a high. This show has I guess everything planned out for it. Giving long time on the character arcs of Sara, Laurel apart from Oliver has been real fun. This makes it even more suitable for a marathon viewing and not to mention - its been a delight to see Felicity grow as character and at the moment - Olicity or not - she is the one who understand Oliver the most and has the biggest positive influence and his strongest pillar of strength of his life.
6. Flash trailer - It was just perfect. One of the best trailer of the shows coming in this fall. And it really looks good. And well with a cameo of Oliver in pilot I guess this will be one highly anticipated show. I just hope both show somehow write an story arc where both Oliver and Flash come together in justice league style to save the city. And air it around Christmas. It will be the best gift for us.

WTF
Grimm - Had very high expectation from the finale but it was just so so. Had expected much more.

Especial FTW goes to Game of Thrones's Jaime and Tyrion, the Lannister brothers putting the Winchester brothers to shame!
Game of Thrones's Yara and Theon, the Greyjoy siblings put me to tears when "Reek" chose Ramasay
And Game of Thrones's Ramsay and Reek, for as sick as it may be that was also the sweetest they have been with each other.

FTW: Person of Interest and Arrow's exciting season finales, with POI a huge twist that will lead to huge changes in season 4. The second last episode of Hannibal did a great job concluding this chapter of Mason/Margot's storyline, with the climax being simultaneously disturbing and hilarious. A special FTW goes to Gillian Anderson for using the short time between filming Crisis and The Fall to help make Bedelia's return possible.

The season ending of PoI was awesome, but it feels like ending a whole series! Totally FTW

I've put a bet on PoI that the next season will be after a 5 or 10 year time skip, where all the "potential threats" to America are all dead and Samaritan decides to turn on the entire US government because they authorized the killing of its own citizens. The team will have to figure out a way to essentially destroy the new God of the United States.

WHY are people remotely shocked that Trophy Wife was cancelled? It might've been given a bum slot but it premiered decently enough. If it held the audience of The Goldbergs, it could've and would've been renewed. ABC gave it a full season when it's ratings probably would've merited a FALL cancellation.

I watched TW most of the season. It was cute enough, but the problem was that it wasn't really THAT funny. Bert was probably the only really memorable character. And you can't rest an ensemble show on just one kid.

And really, LMS was renewed because it did okay on Fridays, and it's parent company negotiated with ABC to get a 4th season for syndication purposes. Again, we're surprised, because?

FTW: Grimm's season finale, GoT courtroom scene and how fast a well planned fake trial can blow up in your face (HA Tywin Lanister- now you might never get the grandchildren you want that can secure your name in history), Zach and Bert - I love Zachary Levi - please give him a serie where he can shine again or better: bring back Chuck.

WTF: Castle's cliffhanger ending, Trophy Wife being cancelled,

Somewhere in between FTW and WTF: The Blacklist, S.H.I.E.L.D and POI season finales. Some good things but mostly: Was that it?

Arrow just absolutely rocked it. As this show has been getting better with each and every new ep, they outdid themselves with the S2 finale. Bravo, whether the Oliver/Felicity thing got to some or not, it was VERY well played by all!

I just watched the GoT-ep last night and I rewinded the last scene three times (which I never do). Also, I screamed out loud when it suddenly faded to black and I realised that the ep was over.
So glad Nashville stays on. I would sincerely miss that crazy soap.
And to top it off: I normally protest against naming every child with dificult origins "Hope" on tv, but on The Originals, it actually made sense and felt so sweet, I'm completely on board. Especially now that Rebekah is taking care of her ;)

Castle: Yep agree with that. I didn't thought for 1 second that Rick could have died or even been badly injured. The only thing that upset me a little was the look of Kate, I almost bought a ticket to L.A to lend her my shoulder :)

Yeah, the rib stabbing in S.H.I.E.L.D. was pretty good, but the 2nd ending of Garrett was even better. Coulson rocks. And then the return of Patton Oswalt FTW!

I didn't think Castle's ending was all that WTF, though I'd heard about the controversy beforehand, so maybe I was just expecting something much worse. I mean, yeah, it's kind of sloppy because we know Castle isn't dead, but to me the real cliffhanger is who tried to run him off the road? Cuz that was clearly intentional.

Also, the rest of the episode was awesome and hilarious.

... Ok, thanks for the spoiler warning, I was totally going to pass over the Hannibal bit. But with a heading like that and the following picture... check my expiration date because I think I just got spoiled.

No no, I care. And I did see the spoiler warning. But come on, keep the spoils in the meat, not the headline or the picture.

How about the FTW that came out of left-field in The Americans: "I even love your toupee."
My reaction was the same as Phillip's.

FTW:
- Peter Dinklage proving he's a giant in the field of acting! He deserves another Emmy just based on that scene alone.
- Arrow Arrow Arrow! What a great finale, eagerly awaiting next season and more Amanda Waller.
- The previews of Gotham and The Flash. It's a great time to be a fanboy!

Sandra Oh's exit from Grey's Anatomy this week should be on the list. Otherwise I agree with everything else.

Thanks for the terrific Louie clip. I always liked Sarah Baker on Go On. Speaking of Go On, the great Laura Benanti made an all too brief appearance on SVU this week, tipping Amaro over the edge. Oh, my Amaro.
