Jessica Jones is in for a bad case of déjà vu.

David Tennant, who famously and nefariously played Season 1’s Kilgrave (and was just named our Performer of the Week for Broadchurch Season 3), will reprise his role as the mind-warping villain in Season 2 of the Netflix/Marvel drama, EW.com reports.

Kilgrave was last seen in the Season 1 finale, where Krysten Ritter’s titular heroine — spoiler alert! — snapped his neck and killed him.

Twin Peaks Part 14 Recap: Like Daughter, Like Mother

14 August 2017 5:04 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Nope, no Audrey Horne on Twin Peaks this week. I think the solution to her ever-deepening mystery won’t be wrapped up for at least a few more episodes. And for the record, I do not believe she is an actress or somehow trapped inside the soap opera “Invitation To Love” from the original series. I mean, c’mon, think about it, that makes no sense. She’s an actress in a soap opera playing a character with her own name? A soap opera that references events taking place in her hometown? That’s completely absurd (right??). That theory is »

Ray Donovan Recap: Bad Luck Be a Lady

What happened in “Las Vegas” was a total freakin’ bummer.

The second episode of Ray Donovan‘s time-tripping fifth season flashed back to Ray and Abby’s year-ago 21st anniversary-themed road trip to Sin City, which ended with Abby suffering a seizure in a hotel room. She and Ray would soon learn what we’ve known since last week’s season premiere: Her cancer has (presumably) not only returned, but has metastasized the brain and is now terminal.  (Abby’s seizure was foreshadowed at the beginning of the hour when she brought in a handyman to help troubleshoot the mysterious »

4 August 2017 5:24 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The actor made the joke Thursday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he said he refused his director’s request to act out a very Nsfw scene involving a dog. Pattinson’s comments soon went viral, even eliciting praise from the animal rights group PETA, which thanked him for declining to participate.

Mufasa, who is the father and this huge, huge dog, was initially in this scene,” Pattinson explained during his Thursday appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” “My character, Connie, has this affinity with dogs. He thinks he is a dog in a previous life and he thinks he has control. »

Simpson was granted the decision on Thursday while at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada, where he appeared live via video teleconference in front of the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners in Carson City.
