'The Following' post-mortem: EP on who's REALLY dead, that cliffhanger, and what you WON'T see in season 3
The Following closed out its second season Monday night with a finale that closed some chapters, left several people dead, and had an ending that, executive producer Marcos Siega says, was always meant to be a taste of something different.

Even after the Arrow writers made the tough choice to [Spoiler Alert times a billion] kill off Queen family matriarch Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson) in the episode that aired Wednesday night, there was still one more detail to hash out: How would Slade Wilson end Mama Queen’s life?
They knew the scenario — Slade (Manu Bennett) was going to eerily re-stage the tragic death of his beloved Shadow and, in a full circle moment, force Oliver (Stephen Amell) to pick his mother or his sister. (Ultimately, Moira would take that decision out of her son’s hands.) But the actual act of killing came down to one question: sword or a gun? And that decision came with more discussion than you might imagine. READ FULL STORY

Chances are you’re still not over last week’s Mindy Project breakup, and we can’t blame you. But the good news? Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) might be done for now, but they’re not done forever.
“I think the dynamic between them is special and different and they are unlike any other couple on TV because they are such distinct characters and they fight so much,” says Ike Barinholtz, who plays lovable nurse Morgan on the show and co-wrote the big breakup episode. “To put them back together just makes so much sense…eventually.”
Below, Barinholtz talks more about writing the scene that ripped your soul apart, and we give you an exclusive look at the original script, annotated (hilariously) by Kaling, Barinholtz, and episode co-writer David Stassen.
It’s safe to say that Glee‘s Rachel (Lea Michele) and Blaine (Darren Criss) both enjoy a nice Broadway show tune. The pair get to pay homage Tuesday night to Stephen Sondheim, one of the masters of musical theater, whose work is highlighted on the latest episode of Glee, airing at 8 p.m. on Fox. In this exclusive clip, Rachel and Blaine perform “Broadway Baby” from Sondheim’s Follies for NYADA’s Carmen Tibideaux (guest star Whoopi Goldberg) at their mid-winter critique. Watch below.

On the current, fifth season of FX’s animated sitcom Archer – the rebranded Archer: Vice — the members of ISIS have transformed from spies into drug dealers as they try to sell a literal (not a figurative!) metric tonne of cocaine. But creator and writer Adam Reed has good news for fans who miss the espionage-themed shenanigans of yore. “I think this next season we will sort of unreboot, or whatever — deboot,” he reveals to EW, “and get back to the basics of some spy missions.” READ FULL STORY
[SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THE LATEST BATES MOTEL!!!!]
Tonight’s Bates Motel had a whopper of a twist in the final moments: Dylan’s father is…his mother’s brother! Yep, according to Norma (Vera Farmiga), her bro Caleb (Kenny Johnson) is Dylan’s dad. This will likely not end well so we talked to Motel EP Carlton Cuse about this major development.
EW: Tonight’s big reveal was that Caleb is the father of Dylan. Did you all plan that from the start of the series?
CARLTON CUSE: Like most good creative ideas they evolve and they grow richer over time. Back when I first discussed the show with A&E I mentioned with them that I would love to add a brother character number one because I thought it would be great to have a window of normalcy to look out at Norma and Norman through the perspective of this other guy. Also, it just felt like this dynamic of this other brother kind of creating triangulation in the family dynamic would be super great. Kerry Ehrin and I put flesh and bone on the Dylan character and I think as we started writing him and developing him and actually watching him and seeing how hurt and damaged he was being this sort of third wheel in this family, it felt like a natural progression to try and explain that and deepen our understanding of how that happened. Then, honestly, it was Vera who sent us the idea and thought What if we do this. Kerry and Vera and I all talked about it. It just was one of those things that “Oh this completely makes sense.” It was all kind of sitting on the table and then it all kind of fell into place.
So where will this storyline go?
I think it has incredibly powerful consequences for Dylan. It’s just such a horrible revelation for his self-worth. It really sort of spins him into a dark place in concert with the fact that he’s unwittingly found himself right in the middle of this crazy drug family. I think those two things spiral on top of each other. That’s what we’re following for the rest of the season: the downward spiral of Dylan. I’ve talked before about how the thematic of this season is, Who am I? Now that Dylan gets this really horrible answer to this question, now he’s dealing with the consequences of it. It’s really an opportunity for Max Thieriot to shine. It goes to some pretty twisty places over the course of the season. The event kind of catalyzes his event for the rest of the season.
Will we meet Norma’s parents?
We’ve had conversations about other family members but this is kind of as far as its goes. You can’t take too many Bates relatives at one time.
Kenny Johnson is sorta perfect because he looks like Max.
I think he looks remarkably like him. If you took Max Thieriot and just led a hard and dissolute life for 20 years, he would look just like Kenny Johnson. It was sort of the brilliance of April Webster, our fantastic casting director, who found Kenny. I knew Kenny because he was on The Shield and The Shield was done by Shawn Ryan. I gave Shawn Ryan his first job on Nash Bridges and Shawn and I are friends. Shawn had extolled how amazing Kenny was and how fantastic he was an actor. We just jumped at the opportunity for him to join our show.
We’re also meeting Michael Vartan’s character. He seems so nice. Is that even possible on Bates Motel?
Well, that’s really the question: Is Norma capable of having a relationship with a nice, normal person? I think this is a problem for a lot of people in life in general. There’s definitely a lot of people who kind of just don’t choose well when it comes to relationships because they’re sort of drawn to qualities that don’t tend to go with people who turn out to be nice guys or gals. I think Norma in some way is being handed the life she wants on a silver plate and will it work out.
This was probably the most shocking episode so far. Are there more twists to come?
Yeah, there are some other surprises coming up this season. I think that’s kind of the fun of the show. This is not like a small nuanced cable drama where one thing happens. The story telling is intentionally pretty full-throttle. There’s a bunch of other stuff that happens.
Monday night’s Bates Motel, airing at 10 p.m. on A&E, features a truly twisted family reunion when Caleb (Kenny Johnson) pays a visit to the Bates Motel in order to reunite with his sister Norma (Vera Farmiga). In last year’s season finale, Norma revealed to Norman (Freddie Highmore) that her brother had raped her when they were growing up.
EW has an exclusive peek at the episode which features a rather tense initial run-in between Caleb and Norma’s other son Dylan (Max Thieriot). Watch below: READ FULL STORY
