From Fox: "The Jeffersonian investigates the murder of a convicted felon who had been released to a halfway house, but disappeared, and a suspect in the case has ties to Booth. Meanwhile, Brennan testifies at an FBI hearing about the circumstances regarding her assault of an unarmed suspect from a previous case, and the outcome of the hearing could lead to her suspension and prevent her from working with the FBI. Aubrey and Jessica?s (guest star Laura Spencer) first kiss is delayed again and Hodgins continues to push Angela away." »

Wounded veteran Kirstie Ennis has never hidden from her awful injuries and her tough post-war journey. Now she is sharing more of herself than ever before. In a series she calls her "body image project," Ennis, 25, spotlights her road to recovery as an amputee in a series of striking poses. The last one, shown exclusively to People to unveil the final stage of her post-op body, sees her with the prosthetic leg with which she first walked in February. "Essentially I did it to empower myself," Ennis, who famously shared a hug with fellow Afghanistan veteran Prince Harry, tells People of the intensely personal series. »

Star Wars Rebels Season 2 comes to an epic and spectacular conclusion in Twilight of the Apprentice. I can say without exaggeration, and having seen every episode of Star Wars animation since The Clone Wars micro series, that this finale is arguably the best. Season two promised a darker turn with the introduction of Darth Vader (James Earl Jones) and Ezra Bridger's (Taylor Gray) flirtations with the Dark Side of the Force. Twilight of the Apprentice brings both of their journeys to a thundering climax of lightsaber battles. Old foes are revealed, masks are shattered, and gained. The long awaited, sorrowful showdown of an apprentice against her former master finally happens. Complete spoilers follow.
Star Wars Rebels: Twilight of the Apprentice begins with Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein), Kanan Jarrus (Freddie Prinze Jr.), and Ezra on the Phantom in hyperspace. They are heading to the forbidden planet of Malachor, as instructed »
Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos Seaworth, tells Rolling Stone that George R.R. Martin once shared with him a massive secret about the future of the beloved fantasy franchise. And while the Irish actor, obviously, didn't divulge that spoiler, he did sift through a handful of ridiculous fan theories in a new video.
Cunningham does give some consideration to the first few conjectures such as, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen are brother and sister, and Snow is Azor Ahai reborn — but both get tossed in the "bullshit" pile. »
A pure-gold Savant favorite, Sir Richard Attenborough's first feature as director is a stylized pacifist epic of the insane tragedy of WW1, told through contemporary songs, with the irreverent lyrics given them by the soldiers themselves. And one will not want to miss a young Maggie Smith's music hall performance -- luring young conscripts to doom in the trenches. It's the strangest pacifist film ever, done in high style. Oh! What a Lovely War DVD The Warner Archive Collection 1969 / Color / 2:35 enhanced widescreen / 144 min. / Street Date September 22, 2015 / available through the WBshop / 16.99 Starring: Too many to name, see below.
