Twin Peaks Recasts Major Role for Revival (and It's a Total Bummer)
This is a damn fine disappointment.
When Twin Peaks resurfaces on Showtime in Summer 2017, there will be a new sheriff in town.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Michael Ontkean has opted not to reprise his beloved role of Sheriff Harry S. Truman in the upcoming limited-run revival. Rumor has it that veteran actor Robert Forster (Heroes, Karen Sisco) has stepped in to replace Ontkean as the town’s top lawman, although it’s unclear if he will be playing Truman or a new sheriff.
'Game of Thrones' just cast another Red Priestess — 4 theories on what that means
“Game of Thrones” doesn’t return until 2016, but casting is already well under to fill the ranks for next season. To that end Deadline has announced the casting of Melanie Liburd as the Red Priestess. Melisandre is no longer alone. But just where does this new follower of R’hllor fit into the narrative? We’ve got a couple of options. #1 - Liburd is a gender swapped version of Moqorro. In “A Dance with Dragons,” the High Priest of R’hllor sends a priest to offer assistance to Daenerys. Moqorro books passage to Qarth, knowing full well the ship will never make it because he is better at reading the flames than Melisandre is. Instead the Red Priest winds up overboard during a storm he predicted and is taken aboard Victarion Greyjoy’s fleet where he offers both magical healing and prophecy. #2 - The temple of R’hllor in Oldtown. »

Jane the Virgin Season 2 Photos: Rogelio and Xo Get Emotional, Jane Talks With Michael
We’re still a few days away from the Season 2 premiere of Jane the Virgin, and even though we’ve only seen just a little bit of what we can expect in the first episode of the show’s second season (with a 30-second trailer, a couple video interviews, and a few photos giving us some small details), The CW has released images from the following two episodes, “Chapter Twenty-Four” and “Chapter Twenty-Five.” In the photos below, it appears that Rogelio and Xo go through some type of emotional exchange with one another, and while it may start off a little rough (look at Rogelio’s face as he clutches the book), it ends with the two of them together seeming quite happy. Side note: I have missed Rogelio De La Vega (and the tremendous Jaime Camil who plays the soap opera star) so much over the past few months. »

How to Get Away With Murder Recap: 'Tonya, You Negligent Slut!'
Slut-shaming: It’s not just for Internet message boards anymore, it’s also for juries looking to yell “Guilty!” and burn a buxom beauty at the stake.
So says Annalise Keating at the start of this week’s How to Get Away With Murder — which not only drops some knowledge about a sexual position known as “the octopus” (do we go with the definition found on Urban Dictionary or the very different one courtesy of Cosmopolitan.com?) but also raises questions about the season’s central (and possibly incestuous) defense clients, Caleb and Catherine Hapstall and leaves us with a “Whoa! »
Scandal Recap: White House Frown
Scandal fans, are your jaws still on the floor after last week’s game-changing final moment? Would you vote for Olivia’s carefully measured, emphatic “Yes” as the single most satisfying word ever uttered in the history of Shondaland? While the latter question is up for debate (though I can’t imagine a more appealing alternative), there’s no denying Liv’s shocking, long-awaited public confession to being Fitz’s mistress has left plenty of highly entertaining carnage in its wake. Let’s recap, and then discuss!
Heroes Reborn Recap: Suicide Squad
With only 10 episodes remaining to unite all of its central characters and save the world, Heroes Reborn this Thursday slowly began to fit its many puzzle pieces together — and, for one Evo in particular, that was a matter of life and death.
Before you give us your thoughts on the latest installment, let’s break down the NBC drama’s fourth episode:

Sleepy Hollow Recap: Secrets and Spies, Plus: The Witnesses as Roomies
You’ve gotta begrudgingly grant Sleepy Hollow‘s Pandora a little respect.
Girlfriend shows up in town last episode, and already she’s harnessed a secret-sucking shadow monster that — however inadvertently — gets the Witnesses to confess their darkest confessions to each other? And that treevil she’s growing in the ruins should be ready to take over the town in, what, two more episodes? (Take that, Henry and your season-long tinkering with that silly model town!)
All I’m saying is, the Third Tribulation better get to the bullpen and start warming up its arm, because Ol’ Boxy-but-Bad works quickly. »
