He played the game of Survivor: Cagayan at a blistering pace that we’ve never seen before, making moves upon moves, even when there were seemingly no moves to even make. In the end, Tony Vlachos’ dedication won him the check for a million dollars and the title of Sole Survivor, but only after Woo made the shocking decision to bring him — instead of the easily beatable Kass — to the finals. We talked to the winner to get his take on Woo’s decision, Trish’s epic takedown at the final Tribal Council, and what he considers his best move of the game.

Tag: Season Finale (14-26 of 75)
Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’ Also make sure to read Probst giving exclusive intel on the NEXT season of ‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water.’
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tony is probably the most aggressive winner we’ve ever seen. So where does he rank for you in the pantheon of Survivor champs?
JEFF PROBST: Tony is one of the most electrifying players/characters we’ve ever had. You can’t anticipate what he’s going to do and then when he does it you are often stunned at the manner in which he did it. I’m happy he won. I like seeing players rewarded for playing hard. I really do believe Survivor is at it’s best when played by people who go for broke. I also really appreciated the jury rewarding him with the money. That was a key ingredient. They could have been bitter and voted “against” Tony but instead they voted “for” Tony despite their bitterness. READ FULL STORY

Bones fans, brace yourselves.
Ordinarily, we’d set up the following sneak peek clip with a flowery intro, maybe a pun or two. But the video you’re about to see is so intense and worrying, we really think you have to see this clip from Monday’s season finale of Bones for yourself.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you… READ FULL STORY
Before season finale season kicked into high gear, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY reached out to some of your favorite shows for some unconventional teases. Check out the latest installment of our Season Finale Survey below:

Blacklisters, tonight is the night. The season finale is upon us. Red Reddington is in custody. Liz Keen is as confused as she’s ever been. Tom Keen is armed and dangerous (and possibly infected with something?) Agent Ressler is on hand to throw some muscle behind Liz’s wild ideas. And dear Dembe with his deadpan humor is surely plotting Red’s escape. Lastly, there’s Berlin–man, woman, masked crusader?
But the big question that has been hanging over the series is, who is Liz Keen’s biological father? Actress Megan Boone told EW that “Liz reveals a memory of her biological father” in the finale and “it could relate to Red.” As for her husband-turned-spy-fugitive, she said that “there is something very very surprising about Tom’s involvement in the finale.” Could he be a good guy? Anything is possible on The Blacklist.
To get more of a taste of what’s to come, we talked to creator Jon Bokenkamp about tonight’s showdown.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Do we finally find out who Berlin is in the finale?
Jon Bokenkamp: Berlin has arrived. And so now, Red is being hunted and we will introduce this character and we will get to know bits about Berlin, but really the interesting thing to me is to see Red on his heels. For the first time, we’re really getting to see what he’s afraid of, what makes him vulnerable. And this is a figure who has been after him for years, and so there’s a lot at stake. There’s a large question of what Red has done to gain the wrath of this figure. That’s not a terribly articulate answer is it?
EW was desperate for more information about Sunday night’s Once Upon a Time season closer — and happily, showrunners Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz didn’t give us the cold shoulder. Read on to learn all about why things shook out as they did — and how the pair decided to bring in the show’s newest Big Bad. (Or, to be more accurate, its new Big Misunderstood. Caution: Spoilers ahead!)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Take me through the decision to add Elsa to Once.
Eddy Kitsis: We saw the movie, and collectively, the whole entire writers’ room just loved it. It was our favorite film. What we loved so much about Elsa was she was perceived to be a villain, but of course we understood she was misunderstood. And the only one who understood that was her sister. That was a very thematic thing for us, which is a misunderstood character who everyone perceives to be bad. READ FULL STORY
WARNING: This story contains spoilers from the season finale of Revenge. Proceed with caution, West Coast!
Fans of ABC’s twisted Hamptons drama-fest Revenge learned earlier this week that the show would be returning for a fourth season, and thank the TV Gods for that. Because after tonight’s season finale, which featured multiple deaths and one HUGE twist, we’re guessing there would have been a few not-so happy fans. “I was telling everyone, if we didn’t get picked up, that was going to be the ultimate act of revenge,” jokes exec producer Sunil Nayar, who called EW to break down the show’s boldest finale yet.

'New Girl' finale postmortem: Zooey Deschanel, Lamorne Morris talk Nick and Jess [SPOILER], a 'reset' in season 4
Fair warning, Roomfriends: If you haven’t seen New Girl‘s sea-legged finale, change course now to avoid the iceberg full of SPOILERS ahead. If you have seen the episode, click through while we ready the full recap (UPDATE: It’s live!) and see what Zooey Deschanel, Lamorne Morris, and executive producer Dave Finkel had to say about “Cruise.” (Secondary warning and deepest apologies to Schmidt: Prepare for lots of nautical puns.) READ FULL STORY
Though New Girl‘s third season has reached its end, star Zooey Deschanel is embarking on her own new adventure as the finale, “Cruise,” shows off several looks from “To Tommy, From Zooey,” the capsule collection Deschanel co-designed with fashion titan Tommy Hilfiger.
Hilfiger notes that Deschanel’s “modical” (mod + nautical) looks — including the dress above — make for a “serendipitous” addition to Tuesday’s episode, which sees the loftmates roped into a high-seas farce after exes Jess (Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) realize the couples cruise they booked while drunk is non-refundable.
“I didn’t even tell Liz [Meriwether, New Girl‘s creator] I had a fashion line,” Deschanel says about her pieces’ appearance in the show. “I showed several samples to Deborah Maguire, who’s our costume designer…and put them in the mix for Liz and the powers that be to review.” She adds with a laugh: “When I walked [on set] in them, I got so many compliments. People had no idea.”
Below, see two more of Deschanel’s designs from tonight’s episode, plus a few teases about how the finale will play out for the exes and their reluctant shipmates. READ FULL STORY
'Bates Motel' finale postmortem: EP on what's next for Dylan, that kiss, and the emergence of a 'dark part' of Norman
The season 2 finale of Bates Motel gave viewers a lot to think about: Is the Norman we knew gone for good? Will Dylan take over the drug trade? And what was up with that kiss?!
We caught up with Executive Producer Kerry Ehrin to dissect the finale — kiss included! — and what that ending means for Norman Bates’ journey. Check out our chat below: READ FULL STORY
Sunday’s season 4 finale of The Walking Dead ended with 12 of our heroes locked inside train car A by the folks at Terminus. That would seem to be advantage: bad guys. But our survivors have something the apparent cannibals do not: Rick Grimes, who delivered a slightly more family friendly version of one of his classic lines from the comic book on which the AMC drama is based: “They’re screwing with the wrong people!” The season ended right there on that cliffhanger, and now we have more intel on exactly how shooting that final scene went down. Alanna Masterson, who plays Tara, called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning to chat all about the big finale and her time so far on the show, and she took us inside the train car to tell us all about the filming of that big scene.
