'Covert Affairs' creators talk that season 5 finale ending

Spoiler alert: The Covert Affairs season 5 finale, “Gold Soundz,” brought about big changes for Annie (Piper Perabo) and Auggie (Chris Gorham). After almost being killed, again, the latter decided he wants to leave the agency and travel the world with Natasha (Liane Balaban). If/when the show gets an order for a sixth season, would Auggie be in it? “Oh, he’ll be in it,” co-creator Matt Corman assures us. “It’s a slightly different dynamic for him at the outset. I think for now he’s trying this, trying something different. It’s interesting, he’s been so defined by his job. He has the CIA so dialed that for him, maybe more than any of our other characters, stepping out of that workplace is gonna be a real shift.”

With Arthur (Peter Gallagher) considering a run for Senate, Joan (Kari Matchett) heading up a new task force, and Annie debating whom to work for, whether to accept that mid-action sequence proposal from McQuaid (Nic Bishop), and what to do about her heart, season 6 could look a lot different. “It’s like any family, right, people go off in different directions, but they’re all still a family. There will always be things that unify them,” co-creator Chris Ord says. “And,” adds Corman, “pull them back together.” READ FULL STORY

Louis' next move revealed in 'Suits' promo -- exclusive

Suits fans have been waiting months to see what will happen now that Louis (Rick Hoffman) has figured out that Mike (Patrick J. Adams) doesn’t have a law degree—and that those closest to him at the firm have been hiding that fact.

And what might that mean for Mike? Get a sneak peek at the new promo below.

Best of 2014: How the May vs. May fight on 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' came together

One of the most talked about (and gif’d about) moments of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. occurred early this season, when Ming-Na Wen’s Agent May ended up in a fight with her own doppelganger (a.k.a. a brainwashed Hydra agent). The scene was a beautifully choreographed dance of stunt work that, like most sequences on the show, looked effortless—but in reality, took a village to pull off. “There was one solid 16 hour day, but there were also two half day and quarter days,” explained stunt performer Samantha Jo of the resulting two minute sequence. “So it really spanned over 3 full days.”

As former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury taught us, nobody does it alone. EW spoke with members of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s creative team (Jo, fight choreographer Matt Mullins, and stunt coordinator Tanner Gill) as well as the real Agent May to get the scoop on everything that went into pulling this scene together.

'Covert Affairs' creators share details from season 5's finale

While Covert Affairs fans await word on whether USA will renew the globe-trotting drama, the intense fifth season comes to a close Thursday as Annie (Piper Perabo) and McQuaid (Nic Bishop) try to get villain-turned-potential asset Belenko (Shawn Doyle) out of Argentina. “It’s a classic Covert Affairs episode in that there’s high stakes, we’re abroad, they’re operating without a net, and they’re up against a tremendously savvy adversary,” co-creator Matt Corman says, referring to the Russian Vega assassins who want Belenko dead. As co-creator Chris Ord explains, “If anything, the bar is higher than last season when Annie’s goal was to kill Henry. In some ways, not killing someone—or at least trying to get him out of somewhere alive—is the tougher goal.”

Corman and Ord wrote the episode, which sets one particularly nail-biting sequence in Buenos Aires’ Recoleta Cemetery. “That’s such an iconic location in that city, and to be able to set an action sequence there—trying to take advantage of all those twists and turns and little alley ways—was really a dream come true,” Ord says.

While they promise viewers will see Annie and McQuaid’s relationship evolve even further in the finale, there’s also plenty happening Stateside with Auggie (Chris Gorham) returning home to help Calder (Hill Harper) and Joan (Kari Matchett) continue their search for Belenko’s cohort Langer (Joel Keller). “It represents real danger for some of our folks at home, which is something we haven’t always done,” Corman says. “This is kind of a synthesis of danger at home and danger abroad.” READ FULL STORY

'Survivor': Why that 'wicked stepmother' speech enraged me

Last night, three women made it to the final three on Survivor for the first time in five seasons—and Natalie Anderson, who was clearly the best player, won. (Read Dalton Ross’s recap here.) You’d think that might be a victory for Survivor fans who like to see smart, tough women triumph. Right? But toward the end of the season finale, something happened that so enraged me, I wanted to snuff out my own torch and use it to stab my TV.

Finalist Missy Payne was attacked, very personally and nastily, for acting in a way that’s supposedly unbecoming for a mother. (Her daughter, Baylor Wilson, also competed this season.) First, jury member Alec Christy criticized Missy for not being “motherly” this season. Then Reed Kelly delivered a particularly nasty screed, calling Missy “the wicked stepmother” of the tribe. You can watch his speech below:

Remembering Stephen Colbert's 6 most awkward in-character interviews

When Jennifer 8 Lee was prepping for her 2008 interview on The Colbert Report, she didn’t know what to expect. A friend who wrote for The Daily Show gave the author some good advice: Don’t try to out-funny Stephen Colbert; “just be calm and roll with the weirdness.”

Over the past nine years, Colbert—in character as a fact-free conservative pundit—has commanded a powerful perch at his round interview table, keeping guests off kilter four nights a week. In especially brilliant moments, he has asked tougher questions than real journalists. After all, Colbert’s the guy who asked Robert F. Kennedy Jr.—appearing on the show to discuss his 2006 Rolling Stone piece, “Was the 2004 Election Stolen?”—if it was easier for George W. Bush to steal the 2004 election, or for Kennedy’s uncle, John F. Kennedy, to steal the 1960 presidential election. Colbert also asked Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow if she believed that the CIA purposely misled her to make torture techniques seem worthwhile.

Truthiness be told, Colbert might be best remembered for the cringe-inducing awkwardness of so many of his Colbert Report interviews. He often seemed to delight in the moment when an unsuspecting interview subject would get a telltale look of cornered confusion. That confused, annoyed look was definitely more prevalent in the early Report years—but not exclusive to them. We’ve rounded up some of Colbert’s most awkward interviews for you to watch, squirm, and laugh through all over again. READ FULL STORY
