Bates Motel Boss Dissects Premiere Twists, Confirms [Spoiler] Theory
3 hours ago
Norman Bates’ final descent into Psychosis has begun.
The fifth and final season of A&E’s Bates Motel got underway Monday night, and it was completely, utterly, gloriously nuts. It was also heartbreaking. And on at least one occasion, slightly mystifying.
Below, showrunner Kerry Ehrin tackles some of my burning questions about the premiere, while also teasing what craziness awaits in the remaining nine episodes.
Tvline | The biggest shocker of the episode for me — Norman is a total slob!
Kerry Ehrin | [Laughs] Hilarious. He’s a boy »
Quantico Recap: Two Become One
3 hours ago
Need to catch up? Check out the previous Quantico recap.
By the end of this week’s Quantico, the final one featuring two timelines, we know this much is true:
The mastermind behind the terrorist attack at the G20 summit was Lydia.
Alex and Ryan are very much in an “off” phase of their on-again, off-again romance.
Harry likely is never going to get the justice he’s chased all season.
Owen definitely is one of the good guys. (At least, for now.)
The damage Lydia did is going to take a new team of FBI and CIA agents to handle… »
Timeless EPs Talk Rittenhouse Twist, [Spoiler]'s Condition, Season 2 Plans

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Monday’s Timeless finale
Timeless dropped a mother of a twist during Monday night’s finale when Lucy’s mom, Carol (played by Susanna Thompson), revealed to her daughter that she’s a member of Rittenhouse. That makes Lucy something akin to Rittenhouse royalty, coming from two of the mysterious organization’s strongest bloodlines.

Supergirl Recap: Valentine's Day Brings Out Kara's Inner 'Nasty Woman'
5 hours ago
Supergirl‘s belated salute to Valentine’s Day could have doubled as the weirdest Bachelorette finale I’ve ever seen.
RelatedSupergirl‘s Mr. Mxyzptlk Explains His ‘Updated’ Look
Two suitors remained at the top of Monday’s episode: Mon-El, the reformed bad boy from Daxam, and Mxyzptlk, the smarmy charmer from the Fifth Dimension. And following an hour of made-for-tv drama — honestly, I half expected Chris Harrison to emerge from behind an icicle in the Fortress of Solitude to take over hosting duties — Kara did, in fact, agree to marry one of her suitors.

Remember, at the end of The Detour‘s first season, when the cops showed Nate all the photos of a woman who looked a lot like Robin? All those hairdos? Those ’80s and ’90s styles?
If you liked that, series star Natalie Zea says, you’ll be quite satisfied with the TBS comedy’s Season 2, which kicks off Tuesday at 10/9c.

TNT’s Major Crimes at long last resumes Season 5 this week — though for the first time in its history, not airing on Mondays.
Instead, the offshoot of The Closer — which also called Monday home — will be airing Wednesdays at 9/8c, starting Feb. 22. As such, you can understand if the series’ creator is a bit anxious.

Luke gets some good news and some bad news on Monday’s Shadowhunters (Freeform, 8/7c), though it’s kind of hard to differentiate between the two.
In TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek from the revealing episode, Jace and Clary arrive at the Jade Wolf with a bucket of knowledge to dump on their (understandably) angry were-pal. And right when you think things get any worse…
“Just now on the rooftop, he showed us both a vision of a demon that could destroy the sword,” Jace says.

The Walking Dead's Pollyanna McIntosh Talks Jadis' Origins and the 'Loveliest' Compliment Andrew Lincoln Paid Her
19 February 2017 7:07 PM, PST
When The Walking Dead’s showrunner Scott Gimple told TVLine that viewers would dig the group being introduced in “New Best Friends,” I’ll admit I was skeptical. To me, the AMC drama already seemed overpopulated. But, after getting a load of Pollyanna McIntosh’s Jadis and her fantastically freaky junkyard collective, I’m eating my words. They. Are. Awesome. Even series lead Andrew Lincoln agrees. “One of my loveliest moments on set,” the Scottish actress says, “was when he turned around and went, ‘You guys are weird. I like you.'”

Walking Dead Recap: Little 'Right' Lie

Last week’s midseason premiere of The Walking Dead left us with questions — big ones.
Why did being held at gunpoint by a group of strangers make Rick smile? Who’s been spying on Alexandria? Why did Gabriel clean out the pantry? With whom did he drive off? Helpfully, Sunday’s excellent hour answered them all (and so will this recap). Shall we?

Big Little Lies Premiere: Are You Sold on HBO's Rich-Moms Miniseries?
19 February 2017 6:59 PM, PST
Welcome to beautiful Monterey, California, where everything is a high-class, top-dollar affair… even the homicides.
Sunday’s premiere of Big Little Lies — HBO’s seven-part adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s bestselling novel — opens on a grim crime scene at a lavish school fundraiser. Somebody’s dead, and the town’s nosy residents are all too happy to gossip to the cops about who might be responsible. The victim suffered severe fractures to the pelvis and skull, and the detectives rule the death a homicide, but we don’t learn who actually died, much less who killed them. We do learn a lot, »

You’d think last week’s shocking van explosion would be Carrie’s main priority this week on Homeland. But instead, another ticking time bomb took precedence in an intense nail-biter of an episode.

I have a few more things to say about Sunday’s premiere of The Good Fight — 15 things, to be exact.
As my rave review last week made abundantly clear, I’m totally on board with Robert and Michelle King’s Good Wife sequel, which debuted Sunday on both CBS network and CBS All Access. And based on the early poll results emerging from the nether regions of my recap, it appears many of you share my enthusiasm.

The Good Fight was indeed good — but was it $5.99 good?
In the months leading up to The Good Wife spinoff, TVLine readers far and wide groused about having to pay CBS All Access’ monthly subscription rate for the privilege of watching the continuing adventures of Diane Lockhart & Co. But all the sound and fury signified nothing in my mind since the protests erupted before anyone had actually seen the offshoot.
