'The Middle' season 6 premiere react: The Year of Sue

[This post contains plot details from The Middle season 6 premiere episode, which aired on Sept. 24]

The Middle‘s greatest skill has always been balancing the absurd with the relatable. Is it likely that someone would wear braces for eight years, then have her teeth shift only a day after they come off? No. But how many families have searched through a restaurant Dumpster for a lost retainer? (I lost mine at a Piccadilly.) This ridiculous/mundane split is what makes watching a family in middle America so fun—even after six seasons.

Luckily, we get all of that in “Unbraceable You.” After their trip to Disneyland—or was it World?—the Hecks have spent their summer the way everyone should: by being lazy. The only problem comes when their Friday pool time is interrupted by a neighbor who tells them that school started Monday. They rush to get to their last 47 minutes of the first week of school, and the kid-focused episode kicks off. READ FULL STORY

'Scandal': 10 cryptic teases about the 'extreme' fourth season

Scandal has a lot to live up to in season 4.

The third season capped off with Olivia (Kerry Washington) inadvertently fulfilling her father’s wishes of leaving Washington D.C. with Jake (Scott Foley) in a bid to fix everything, but she did anything but. Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) won the election, but it came at a steep price: Rowan (Joe Morton) had First Son Jerry Jr. (Dylan Minnette) killed to ensure Fitz would score the sympathy vote and pinned it on Olivia’s terrorist mommy Maya Pope (Khandi Alexander). Harrison was the only one to figure out the truth, so Rowan promptly made sure there were no witnesses. This all came after Fitz finally learned that his father Big Jerry (Barry Bostwick) had raped First Lady Mellie (Bellamy Young) years prior, which caused the initial divide in their marriage.

Elsewhere, while Huck (Guillermo Diaz) and Quinn (Katie Lowes) were getting busy, B613 lackey Charlie (George Newbern) dropped a bombshell: Huck’s family, including his wife Kim (Jasika Nicole), are still alive. Naturally, Quinn did the right thing and told Huck the truth, but he was super pissed about it—though he did show up at Kim’s doorstep in the closing moments of the finale.

We repeat: Scandal has a lot to live up to in season 4, which executive producer Shonda Rhimes has managed to keep top secret by basically training B613 snipers on anyone who seeks to leak intel. However, EW has a handful of very cryptic teases about the new season, which executive producer Betsy Beers says is all about “extreme choices and extreme circumstances.” Read on to get more scoop:

'Grey's Anatomy': Where we left off and what's next

Grey’s Anatomy will take family drama to a new level this season.

Meredith and Derek are in the midst of making the life-changing decision of moving to Washington, D.C., Callie and Arizona are looking at a future in which they have more children, and April and Jackson are about to welcome their first child. Which all pales in comparison to the fact that the new head of cardio is actually the daughter Ellis Grey gave up for adoption unbeknownst to Richard, making her Mer’s half-sister. Suffice it to say, there’s a lot of drama coming in season 11.

With that in mind, EW thought you may need a refresher on where we left off with the docs of Grey Sloan Memorial and a tease on what’s coming next:

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.': You may have missed this major spoiler from the premiere

Here's a first look at Adrianne Palicki as Bobbi Morse in 'S.H.I.E.L.D.'

One of the most exciting casting announcements for the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was Adrianne Palicki’s guest role as the superhero Mockingbird. Like Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye—a character whose comics counterpart actually has a relationship with her—Mockingbird isn’t so much a superpowered demigod as she is a highly trained S.H.I.E.L.D. operative. But before Palicki can become Mockingbird, she’ll first have to appear as Bobbi Morse.

Courtesy of ABC, here’s your first look at Palicki as Bobbi Morse, the head of Hydra Security and the future Mockingbird.  But will she be friend or foe to Coulson and S.H.I.E.L.D.? The Mockingbird part suggests friend, but the Hydra part…things might get complicated.

Palicki will appear as Bobbi Morse in the October 21 episode, “A Hen in the Wolf House.”

The 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' are 'true underdogs' in season 2

Being an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. these days is no easy feat. The organization has been driven underground in the wake of Hydra’s total infiltration, and the man in charge of rebuilding was brought back to life via a serum from a mysterious blue alien.

When Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for its second season, newly installed Director Coulson will have an uphill battle to prove that his agents are actually the good guys—which is made all the more difficult with most of S.H.I.E.L.D. scattered to the wind, selling them out, or in their custody for being members of Hydra, like the double-crossing Ward.

Can Coulson return S.H.I.E.L.D. to its glory days? Who may stand in their way? And how will the team feel about Coulson being in charge? EW turned to executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen to get the scoop on season 2:

'Forever' react: This looks awfully familiar (which isn't necessarily a bad thing)

A handsome man boards the subway, choosing a seat next to a beautiful woman. They make eye contact, then look away. He says “good day” to her (in Russian), she responds in kind—and then the onslaught begins:

Woman: “How did you know I was Russian?”
Man: “Korovka. Russian chocolate. You have a smudge.”
[Woman wipes her face. There's a pause.]
Man: “Good luck at the performance tonight.”
[She looks at him quizzically.]
Man: “Sorry. I noticed the indentations on your fingers. At first I thought violin, but the spacings are a bit too wide, and there’s no markings under your chin. So, cello.”
[Another pause.]
Woman: “How did you know I have a performance?”
Man: “Your collar has a bit of moisture. Freshly showered. So I assumed you’re either headed to work or going out on a date, and with all due respect, it would be unusual for a woman as beautiful as you to be taking the subway to a date.”

And so on. Welcome to Forever, yet another example of TV’s favorite procedural subgenre: the Deductive Genius show. READ FULL STORY

For the 10th anniversary of 'Lost,' Doc Jensen looks back... and forward

On September 22, 2004, a wild pop romance—a torrid affair between audience and story—took flight. 18.65 million viewers tuned into ABC to watch Oceanic Flight 815 crash on a strange island, leaving an eclectic cross-section of archetypes on a vast spit of mystery. Here, on the 10th anniversary of Lost‘s premiere, we remember a first date for the ages.

Produced for $14 million and shot by director J.J. Abrams with Spielbergian verve, the two-hour pilot immediately sucked us into an exotic survival saga and a shrewdly formulated allegory for a fractured, catastrophe-frazzled world. It captured your imagination by promising a journey with global vision, packed with endless adventure and electrifying discovery—and by making you wonder how long this land-locked, no-escape ironic odyssey could last as the kind of perpetual storytelling machine American television requires.

Perhaps part of our attraction to Lost was the implicit danger. We knew we had fallen for this kind of sexy crackerjack before: take Twin Peaks, or The X-Files. We knew it could burn us by turning incoherent over time, or by withholding answers it may never have had in the first place. We jumped into it anyway, hoping for happily ever after. READ FULL STORY

If Jamie Dornan had returned to 'Once Upon a Time': What would've been

Once Upon a Time nearly got 50 shades hotter last season.

During season three, executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis revealed to reporters that they had a plan for Jamie Dornan to return as Sheriff Graham, a.k.a. the Huntsman, who died in season one after Regina crushed his heart. Ultimately, Dornan couldn’t make it work because the actor was busy shooting Fifty Shades of Grey. At the time, the Once bosses couldn’t even reveal their initial plans, and now it’s clear why: Sheriff Graham would’ve appeared in the season finale, which featured Emma and Hook accidentally traveling back in time to the Enchanted Forest that was.

'Grey's Anatomy' boss: Callie and Arizona have a '50/50 chance' of staying together

It may be the year of Meredith, but she isn’t the only Grey Sloan doc with a tough season ahead of them on Grey’s Anatomy.

For several seasons now, Callie and Arizona’s relationship has been on a rough roller coaster—and we’re not just talking about the latter’s infidelity. The couple separated in season 7 when Arizona left for Africa, during which time Callie got knocked up by Sloan. Then, of course, there was Callie’s car accident, and Arizona losing her leg as a result of the plane crash, culminating in the formerly bubbly peds doc cheating on her wife. They did eventually get back together, move into a new home and decide to have a child via surrogacy, but those are just another series of Band-Aids that the duo have been placing on their damaged relationship. Can they really survive? Or will this new journey finally be the breaking point?
