Fun times.

We’re still talking about the final moments of last week’s How to Get Away with Murder. In a stunning climax, Annalise (the brilliant Viola Davis) sat at her vanity, removed all of her make-up (and her wig), then confronted her husband, Sam (Tom Verica), with this now-famous line, “Why is your penis on a dead girl’s phone?” And now EW has exclusive video of what happens next.

While Showtime has been quiet for a while on any news following its decision to move forward with its show Happyish after the death of its star Philip Seymour Hoffman, the network has finally announced a replacement for the show’s main role.
Spoiler alert: The Oct. 21 episode of Sons of Anarchy introduced Winsome (Gang Related‘s Inbar Lavi), a prostitute who trades information on her abusive pimp’s whereabouts to Jax (Charlie Hunnam) in exchange for a new job at Diosa. As executive producer Paris Barclay, who directed the episode, tells EW in our full postmortem, it wasn’t until showrunner Kurt Sutter saw the chemistry between Jax and Winsome that he decided to play with it again in episode 10. Lavi initially turned down the chance to audition for the show, only because she had the flu when she got the call. But hearing that the casting department was rooting for her, she rallied. Here, the Israeli-born actress—who’s currently in Pittsburgh filming The Last Witch Hunter with Vin Diesel, Elijah Wood, and Michael Caine—talks about the character’s backstory and teases her return.

SyFy has renewed Z Nation for a second season, EW has confirmed.
The renewal news has come in the midst of the show’s first season, which has achieved consistent, yet middling ratings since its series premiere. In spite of the non-Walking Dead numbers, SyFy is putting its weight behind the zombie drama.
The show centers on a post-zombie apocalypse that has ravaged the United States, where a group is tasked with transporting the sole survivor of a zombie wound to a lab across the country so that his antibodies can create a vaccine to save humankind.
Z Nation airs Fridays at 10 p.m. E.T. on SyFy.
Barbara Walters may no longer be as ever-present on ABC as she once was, but that hasn’t stopped her from returning with a new list of fascinating people. ABC announced today that Walters will return in December with Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014.
Among those on this year’s list are Chelsea Handler, newly minted Oscar host Neil Patrick Harris, Scarlett Johansson, and Oprah Winfrey. The other six figures, who will also be interviewed on the show, are expected to be announced soon.
The special will air on Dec. 14 at 9 p.m.

Recording an album is tough, but after 20 years of producing music, the most difficult aspect may be keeping the process fresh. The Foo Fighters took that concept to a new level while creating their latest album, due out in November–they toured the United States, recording each song in a different city, hoping that the music scene of the area would influence the track.
But Dave Grohl didn’t just want to record Sonic Highways–he decided to document the experience, interviewing figures important to each city’s musical history for a documentary series that shares the album’s name. In turn, those interviews shaped the album, as Grohl fashioned his lyrics out of the words of his documentary subjects.
So Sonic Highways attempts to be three different things–a history of music in America, the story of what inspired the Foo Fighters, particularly Dave Grohl, and a behind-the-scenes look at the music production process. Having to serve so many masters unfortunately detracts from the ultimate impact of each story thread, but the show’s ambition and actual construction are fascinating enough for anyone interested in American music, Foo Fighters fan or not, that Sonic Highways is still a unique and enjoyable look into the country’s defining musical history.
