'Covert Affairs' bosses promise a death in midseason finale

Last week’s episode of USA’s Covert Affairs saw Annie (Piper Perabo) coming to believe that McQuaid (Nic Bishop) orchestrated the Chicago bombing, then having second thoughts when she had the chance to bring him in. “She trusts her gut instinct, and her gut instinct is telling her to trust McQuaid,” co-creator Chris Ord says. “We’ll see where that leads her.”

“If she does go ahead and trust McQuaid,” co-creator Matt Corman adds, “it’s gonna complicate things between she and Auggie even further. Throughout the season, the issue of trust between Annie and Auggie has been showcased, and it’s something the two characters are still working through.”

As the promo for the Aug. 26 midseason finale hints, not everyone will make it to the second half of season five. “Fans of this show have come to expect twists and turns, and this episode delivers. Without getting too specific, yes, a character that the audience has come to know will die,” Corman confirms. READ FULL STORY

'Lost Girl' star Anna Silk on the show ending after season 5

Anna Silk has announced via a teary-eyed video on Twitter that Lost Girl, the Canadian Showcase original series imported to Syfy, will end after the upcoming 16-episode fifth season. Producers learned of the show’s fate early enough in the season to craft a satisfying conclusion for fans. “Honestly, I thought we might get one more, but I knew that this could be the last season,” Silk tells EW. “It’s time, in a way. In terms of the story, I think we could have done another. But I’m happy that we’re saying goodbye in a particularly strong season, and I’m pleased that we’re gonna go out with a bang.”

What excites her most about season five? “There’s just something very clear-headed about my character this year. She’s been through so much on this show. My god,” Silk says of succubus Bo. “It’s almost like she went through so much that she’s just pushed it all to the side. Even though she’s still dealing with a lot of the supernatural things that happen in her world, she’s operating at the height of her intelligence, and I love that.” READ FULL STORY

Paul Reubens to play bad on 'The Blacklist'

The guest list for NBC’s The Blacklist continues to grow: Paul Reubens has been cast as Mr. Vargas, a dapper, finicky “muscle” who handles delicate situations in the criminal underworld, EW has learned exclusively. He’ll first appear in season two’s third episode, with the arc slated for at least two episodes. “We’re forgoing the bow tie and the bicycle, and it’s going to be something totally different, and it’s gonna be awesome,” executive producer Jon Bokenkamp says. “It can’t get strange enough for me. One of the most fun things is being able to write for actors who I’ve admired and think are interesting and try to play against expectations. I think this will be a fun one. I’d say he’s gonna shake things up a bit when he enters Red’s orbit.”

“It started with the character,” he says. “We knew what he would feel like and sound like, and then as we started kicking around names, Paul’s name came up as, ‘Well, that would be cool. That will never happen, but we might as well ask.'”

Reubens started work on the show Friday. Other guest stars in season two include Mary-Louise Parker, Lee Tergesen, and Krysten Ritter. Peter Stormare will, of course, return as Berlin.

'Suits' postmortem: Creator Aaron Korsh talks Louis' showdown

This post contains plot details of “This is Rome,” the Suits episode that aired on Aug. 20.

“Pearson…Specter…Litt.” There has never been a more dramatic line reading on USA’s Suits. At the end of an hour that saw Mike, Harvey, Donna, and Katrina working to secure Louis a job at another law firm, Katrina was kicked to the curb and Louis returned home. Creator Aaron Korsh won’t confirm whether Louis will get his name on the wall when season 4 resumes, but with Louis now knowing Mike’s secret, he concedes it’ll be tough for Jessica to get out of it.  READ FULL STORY

'Suits' creator talks Louis' resignation, teases midseason finale

Suits fans were shocked after the Aug. 13 episode when Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) resigned from Pearson Specter—seconds before Harvey (Gabriel Macht), accompanied by Donna (Sarah Rafferty), was to deliver the news that Jessica (Gina Torres) was firing him. Creator Aaron Korsh says there were many incarnations of that ending: “When the writers first pitched me that he was gonna get fired, I didn’t like it. If he was gonna help get them out of this jam, I didn’t like Harvey for wanting to fire him, and I didn’t like Jessica for wanting to fire him. I was gonna not have him be fired—I was gonna have him be forgiven. [But] when the writers pitched the scene of Louis reading that resignation letter as two people go to his office to fire him, it broke my heart in the room,” he says, “and I was like, ‘That’s so good. Maybe he can resign.'”

Hoffman originally read the letter and its memorable last line, “Please take care of my home,” without emotion (which sounds heartbreaking in itself for overly emotional Louis). “We had already wrapped for the mini-season, the actors are all on hiatus, but I was like, ‘I really think it would help us to have him read a much more emotional tone into the letter, where he’s like, ‘Please take care of my home,’ crying basically. So I had to track Rick down in Italy and have him do that in some soundstage in Italy,” Korsh says, laughing, “which I think was worth it because it really made a huge difference in the impact of the letter.” READ FULL STORY

Kurt Sutter reveals how many 'Sons of Anarchy' club members will die

In the Sept. 9 premiere of Sons of Anarchy‘s final season, a vengeful Jax (Charlie Hunnam) tells his brothers, “For me to move forward with all the things we now have to do, I need to know this table has no doubts, no mistrust, that every single one of you would kill or die for the man next to him.” With FX’s marketing campaign centered on Jax morphing into the Reaper, fans anticipate a high body count on the first front by season seven’s end (and they would be right).

But creator Kurt Sutter’s tally on the latter might be surprising: “Two club members will be dead,” he tells EW. “I don’t think there’ll be more than that.”

Before Comic-Con last month, EW asked readers to predict the fate of 15 characters. (Remember, there’s a large number of non-members fans are invested in: Gemma, Unser, Wendy, Nero, Lyla, Chucky, and even Marcus Alvarez and Henry Lin, who’ve been recurring since season one.) If Juice (Theo Rossi) is still considered a member, he topped fans’ hit list with 86 percent guessing he’ll meet Mr. Mayhem at some point. Rat (Niko Nicotera) and Tig (Kim Coates) were the next best bets, with about 64 percent and 63 percent believing they’d eventually be buried in their cuts, respectively. The club members viewed as safest—which could prove more unsettling—were Bobby (Mark Boone Junior) and Chibs (Tommy Flanagan).

With the new intel from Sutter, who starts writing episode nine of the final 13 today, it’s time for a recount.  READ FULL STORY
