‘Reign’ Season 2 Episode 3 Recap: Long Live The King And Queen
Per last week’s “Reign,” Lord Narcisse surely gave Francis and Mary a run for their money, which he continued to do in Thursday's episode titled “Coronation.”

In between the days leading up to Francis officially being crowned king, Mary struggles with watching her people starve, Francis is still haunted by that creepy moment with his son’s nanny, Lola and Francis’ son is officially claimed, Kenna declares she wants all the presents in the world and Catherine makes a move.

Keep reading to see what went down before Francis and Mary stand in front of their people with those lovely, shiny cro...

“Nobody’s memory is perfect or complete,” voiceover Meredith starts, kicking off “Only Mama Knows” episode, where “Grey’s Anatomy” writers take us on a journey down the rabbit hole of the Ellis Grey/Richard Webber torrid affair and finally uncover its destruction.

Mer watches with pride in her eyes, despite Derek throwing her the stink eye. Setting off round two of the Shepherds showdown; Derek still can’t wrap his head around Mer blowing off a workday when proving he...

‘Law & Order SVU’ Season 16 Episode 4 Recap: ‘Holden’s Manifesto’

October 16th, 2014 9:15am EDT
Law & Order SVU
I know how the SVU writers spent their summer vacations; thumbing through newspapers for the most heinous sexual crimes that would make up season 16. We’re already four episodes deep into the season and I already want to draw up a petition removing the “no actual person is represented “disclaimer shown at the beginning of each episode.

Yet, if the well is full they might as well draw from it. In “Holden’s Manifesto” we’re introduced to Holden, a narcissistic documentarian with a penchant for getting revenge on all his unrequited loves. If you’ve recently been struck by déjà vu, it’s becaus...

'Red Band Society' Episode 5 Recap: 'So Tell Me What You Want, W
Despite being in a coma, Charlie is probably the most important character on Red Band Society. He acts as the narrator for the series. And he's also the common denominator between many of the patients and staff. They've either helped, shared a room with, or got a telepathic visit from Charlie. Last night's episode of Red Band Society revealed Charlie's backstory.

The History of Charlie

Several months ago, at a party with his parents, Charlie overdosed on sweets. On the way home, he became sick. His dad, Nick, told him to take off his seatbelt and lie down. He turned around to help Charl...

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap: Rundown On 'Massacres And Matinees'

October 16th, 2014 8:21am EDT
American Horror Story: Freak Show
American Horror Story has never excelled at creating strong plots and characters with coherent motivations. But the one thing it has always done well is embracing its campiness. The episodes that take themselves too seriously are often the least successful. Freak Show is still in that stage of taking itself seriously, but “Massacres and Matinees” also managed to be one of the most ridiculous and funny episodes in the show’s history. Here’s a rundown of the episode:

New Characters Worth Remembering

“Massacres and Matinees” saw the introduction of two new performers in the Freak Show:

'Arrow' Season 3 Episode 2 Recap: 10 Insane Moments from 'Sara'

Arrow
Boy, that was a depressing hour, huh?

That tends to be the case when a show kills off a major character- you've got to take a little time off and say goodbye. Closure is as important with our fake TV superheroes as it is in real life.

Ok, have we gotten far enough in this recap that the little preview on the front page won't show the MASSIVE spoilers from last week? Yes? Cool.

In that case, "Sara" is one long hour of goodbye for the Canary. So long, Sara. You came back from the dead once, but now you're riddled with arrow holes and buried underground. Probably not coming back from that ...

'Supernatural' Season 10 Episode 2 Recap: A Demon Scorned

October 15th, 2014 11:10am EDT
Supernatural
"Supernatural" has always benefited from methodical, eccentric writing. The slow burn premiere from last week ignited into a bonfire of tragedy, snark and demon-black eyes, and our feels were the kindling. "Reichenbach" saw Demon Dean finally earn those fancy eyes of his, Sammy track down his brother and unlocked a whole new level of mythology.

Grab your stress balls and let's dive in, shall we?

This week's episode grabs viewers by the throat with a chilling cold open flashback to 2003. A teenaged Cole awakens to the dulcet tones of his father's brutal murder. The flashback is com...

'The Mindy Project' Season 3 Episode 5 Recap: Shonda Rhimes Is The Reigning Beer Pong Champion

'The Mindy Project' Season 3 Episode 5 Recap: Shonda Rhimes Is T
After last week’s semi-disapointing and pretty groundbreaking episode, we get a more classic episode for this rocky season. I’ve talked about how the show was getting redundant in its set-ups — a Danny and Mindy A-plot followed by whatever Peter and (cast member who is probably Morgan) are doing — and tonight gladly switches up a bit of the formula.

Yes, Mindy has put the practice in jeopardy by showing up extremely late to a hospital meeting and having her “Fancy” ringtone insult Jean, the HBIC. The practice is given the graveyard shift for their C-sections at the hospital, reminding all ...

'Manhattan Love Story' Season 1 Episode 3 Recap: 'Gay Or British?'

October 15th, 2014 10:35am EDT
Manhattan Love Story - Gay or Brittish
The couple who is not really dating go on a date.

“Dana” (Analeigh Tipton) and “Peter” (Jake McDorman) take a walk in Chinatown where she thinks the designer bags they are selling on the street are real Fendi, Prada, and Louis Vuitton. We also find out Peter’s favorite ice cream is vanilla, because it’s uncomplicated and doesn’t ask much from you. Got it. She’s naïve and he doesn’t want to be burdened with anything.

From last week, we learned that the couple is going to see each other but keep it loose, seeing other people and not rubbing the other people in each other’s faces.

Their mut...

'Top Gear' (USA) Recap: 'Weekend Race Cars' - This Episode Has N
On this week's episode of Top Gear, the guys are bringing their best "Weekend Race Cars" to see which one of them can handle more punishment. It's more likely that Adam, Tanner and Rutledge will be the ones needing a little help by the time they get to the finish line.

It's an eclectic bunch of contenders for this week's challenges, with another awesome drive on the line. Rutledge brings a 2002 Subaru WRX, while Tanner places his bet on a 1999 Mazda Miata, and Adam goes really old school with a 1969 VW Baja Bug. You have to hand it to Adam; two weeks ago it was a Mail Jeep and now this - h...
