46 minutes ago

The folks behind Salem have turned to a very logical person to provide a creepy song for their witch drama: Marilyn Manson. (Sure, Stevie Nicks wouldn’t have a bad choice either, but then again, she’s aligned with a different coven, American Horror Story.) The shock rocker’s new tune “Cupid Carries a Gun” can be heard this Sunday as part of the new opening titles for Wgn America’s 17th-century-set drama about the Salem witch trials.

2 hours ago

The final season — the real final season this time — of The Killing has a release date.

'Agents of Shield': Newest art teases Deathlok return as Skye and Ward take center stage -- Exclusive

4 hours ago

To say that this week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. left our team in disarray would be an understatement. May has abandoned ship, literally, apparently on a mission to seek out Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill (with a little help from her mom). Coulson, Trip, Fitz and Simmons have returned from a mission to find their plane gone. And Skye and Ward are currently on a mission of their own, one that involves Ward’s determination to crack that hard drive once and for all.

'Arrow': What you didn't know about [spoiler]'s death

5 hours ago

Even after the Arrow writers made the tough choice to [Spoiler Alert times a billion] kill off Queen family matriarch Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson) in the episode that aired Wednesday night, there was still one more detail to hash out: How would Slade Wilson end Mama Queen’s life?

They knew the scenario — Slade (Manu Bennett) was going to eerily re-stage the tragic death of his beloved Shadow and, in a full circle moment, force Oliver (Stephen Amell) to pick his mother or his sister. (Ultimately, Moira would take that decision out of her son’s hands.) But the actual act of killing came down »

'Survivor: Cagayan': Jeff Probst on keeping sneaky moves secret

8 hours ago

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’

Entertainment Weekly: Tony has to be one of the most paranoid players you’ve encountered, right? But I wonder how the spy shack actually works. It always surprises me when a player is ostensibly hidden from sight (a la Tony) and other players (Trish and Jefra) come strolling along and there’s a camera guy just hanging out alone by the water well filming some random bush. How do you ensure the camera operator doesn’t spoil someone’s plot? Should or »

18 hours ago

Warning: This post contains major Arrow spoilers.

Shocked? Stunned? Heartbroken? Join the club.

The 20th episode of Arrow’s second season dealt a huge personal blow to the hooded hero — one that’s going to affect him and those around him forever. I guess what we’re saying is…

Rip Moira Queen.

Yes, the mayoral candidate/mom to the hero who walks among us and his sister from another mister, has been killed. Specifically, Slade Wilson stuck a blade through her chest in an ultra-emotional scene that played out in front of her children. Will they ever recover? Probably not. »
