'Orphan Black': The creators discuss the shocking return of [SPOILER]

WHAT THE HELL?!?!? That may have been your reaction upon watching Orphan Black’s season 2 premiere. So allow me to issue the standard SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s Orphan Black season premiere.

Helena is not dead. REPEAT: Helena is not dead. And it turns out that was the master plan all along. Orphan Black creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett explain why they insisted on lying through their teeth when they told anyone who asked that the Ukranian clone/clone killer was indeed a goner after being shot by her twin sister Sarah in last season’s finale. They also tell us about that intense diner shoot out, Alison’s foray into musical theater, and their big cameo!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tell me, how does it feel to be big fat stinking liars by going around telling everyone that Helena was dead?

JOHN FAWCETT: It feels great.

GRAEME MANSON: Evil master plan. Evil master plan the whole way. READ FULL STORY

Orphan Black r
eturned for season 2 tonight with a big shocker, and if you have yet to watch then you may not want to read any further. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s season 2 premiere of Orphan Black.]

She’s baaaaaaaaaack! That’s right, Ukranian clone/clone killer Helena was thought to be dead after being shot by Sarah in last season’s finale and left to die in a pool of her own blood. But SURPRISE! She’s alive, and that was just one of the twists. Sarah impersonated Cosima to lay the smackdown on Rachel, and Alison got Aynsley’s part in the local community musical. (Who says watching your bestie choke via a garbage disposal doesn’t have its advantages?) We chatted with star Tatiana Maslany to get her thoughts on the big premiere episode. READ FULL STORY

UFC president Dana White on the new season of 'The Ultimate Fighter,' the rise of Ronda Rousey, and the celeb who makes him starstruck

Tonight at 10 on Fox Sports 1 marks the premiere of the 18th season of The Ultimate Fighter, the long-running reality competition series that puts a bunch of up-and-coming mixed martial artists in a house and lets them duke it out for a shot at UFC glory. For the first time, half of the contestants will be female, and both mixed-gender teams will be coached by women: UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and top contender (and personal Rousey rival) Miesha Tate. Rousey is a particularly important member of the current UFC roster, as she is seeing a tremendous amount of mainstream success since she debuted in the UFC earlier this year: She posed nude in ESPN The Magazine, appeared on the cover of Maxim, and will be showing up in the next sequels in both The Expendables and Fast and Furious franchises.

The premiere of season 18 is its first on the just-launched Fox Sports 1, which marks the third network for the show (it previously aired on SpikeTV and then FX). Through 18 seasons, the one consistent thread has been that of Dana White, the UFC president who also acts as the show’s host, cheerleader, and verbal smackdown-layer. As noted in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, the rise of UFC has a lot to do with White’s skills as a promoter and a talker. EW caught up with White for an extended conversation about the current season of The Ultimate Fighter, the UFC’s upcoming 20th anniversary (a documentary on its trip will air in November), and who his favorite celebrity fight fan is.

'Catfish': Nev Schulman says season 2 features first 'success stories'

Not since Googling became a thing has a noun-turned-verb entered the public lexicon as prominently as Catfishing. And Nev Schulman couldn’t be happier about it. It’s made his job, chronicled on MTV’s docuseries Catfish, a little easier.

“There’s a whole new element in how we interact with these people because they’ve seen the show,” he says of those who contact him for help investigating possible instances of catfishing. “They know the things they can and should be doing to help themselves, and yet, for any number of reasons, they still need our assistance. So we have an ability now to sort of cut through the fat and really attack the issues without having to explain what we’re doing. It gives us a chance to dig deeper and hit a little harder when it comes to the questions we’re asking and the emotions we’re dealing with.”

'Copper': Watch the first three minutes of the season 2 premiere here! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

When BBC America’s Copper wrapped up its first season last October, we left Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) in a pretty dark place. The Civil War-era New York police detective had just suffered betrayals from his wife and his best friend, and the last scene of the finale had Corcoran turning to drugs to deal with his despair.

Copper‘s sophomore season picks up four months later, a jump that new showrunner Thomas Kelly decided to take “to get a fresh start but not move ahead too far out so we wouldn’t have any drastic changes to explain.” The struggles Copper‘s characters faced at the end of season 1 are still present in their lives, but they’re also moving on — season 2 has a theme of reconstruction, both for individual characters and for America, as the Civil War comes to an end.

Below is an exclusive clip from the first few minutes of Copper‘s season 2 premiere, which starts off with a rare serene moment outside the city, but fair warning: It gets bloody and violent pretty quickly.

'Falling Skies' season 3 preview: The fight for the planet gets more complicated

It’s a sunny late September day on the Vancouver set of alien invasion series Falling Skies, and director Greg Beeman is wishing there were more wind.

The cast and crew of the TNT sci-fi show are working on a long tracking shot of the Falling Skies heroes cleaning up after a battle in their home base of Charleston, where an American flag, for now, hangs limp on a pole in the center of town.

“I want that American flag to furl,” Beeman says. “Is it ‘furl’ or ‘unfurl’?” A crew member sitting next to him in video village assures him they want the flag to unfurl. The energetic director claps and chants, “Unfurl, baby, unfurl” before adding, “Raise it really quickly so it catches the wind and flows real pretty.”

Beeman commits several takes to making that flag in the wind a cinematic opening to the long shot through Charleston, but it’s about more than making it look “pretty” — the American flag is also part of some essential imagery for a show that has, since its beginning, loosely alluded to the American Revolutionary War. Humans find themselves fighting on their own turf for independence from aliens. When various infrastructures crumble after the invasion, for the survivors whose story started in Boston, the American flag remains “an iconic and tangible symbol of who they are and what they’re fighting for,” showrunner Remi Aubuchon said.

That nod to the Revolutionary War continues to evolve in season 3 — which premieres on TNT tonight — when the show picks up seven months after the cliffhanger of last summer’s finale: A new alien species called the Vohm has arrived, and they become Falling Skies’ own version of the French.

'Falling Skies': Noah Wyle teases mysteries of season 3 -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Falling Skies returns for a third season this Sunday with all the sci-fi elements that first attracted an audience in summer 2011: action, creep-outs, and post-apocalyptic drama. Mystery has also always been a part of the TNT show (Why did the aliens invade Earth?), but mystery and intrigue are elements the makers of Falling Skies decided to ramp up even more this year.

One of the central mysteries of the new season is the identity of a mole within the resistance. Someone within Charleston, the new capital of what remains of the United States, is feeding inside information and strategies to the alien enemy.

Noah Wyle (Tom), Moon Bloodgood (Anne), Colin Cunningham (Pope), Drew Roy (Hal), and more cast members chat about season 3 mysteries in an EW exclusive video. Watch below, then read on for what showrunner Remi Aubuchon had to say about Falling Skies mysteries, surprises, and red herrings. READ FULL STORY

'Mad Men': Jon Hamm, Jessica Pare, and Matt Weiner on Megan's 'threatening' independence

Hey, sad Don Draper. You’re at a bar. You’re alone. You’re perhaps disappointed with your young wife’s recent decisions. Enter: Attractive Woman. “Are you alone?” she asks coyly. Cut to black.

The last image of Mad Men’s fifth season is a hard one to forget. Though we don’t know anything concrete about what decision Don made that night, opening the door for another affair was at turns dismaying, ominous, and so familiar. And it’s hard not to trace it back to Megan and some sort of undefined, fundamental disconnect in their relationship. There aren’t enough martinis in the world to make Jon Hamm, Jessica Paré, and series creator Matthew Weiner talk about season 6 specifics. But EW did talk with them about Don and Megan, where the couple left off last season, and what they both wanted out the relationship.
