Grey’s Anatomy’s trip to the past on Thursday night was two-fold: Not only did viewers get a deeper glimpse into the life of Ellis Grey (Kate Burton/Sally Pressman), but the dynamics of the emotional hour had an old school Grey’s feel that fans of the long-running ABC drama could truly appreciate.

The second episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show got even wilder with the arrival of strongman Dell Toledo (Michael Chiklis) and hermaphrodite wife Desiree (Angela Bassett) as well as some truly bizarre bonding between Twisty the Clown (John Carroll Lynch) and Dandy Mott (Finn Wittrock).

Saturday Night Live alters the style of its opening credit sequence and commercial bumpers every few years, making adjustments for cast additions and departures in the years between. This year is no different, especially as the show celebrates its 40th anniversary. But there’s more to the process than most viewers would think.

Every week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water.’
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What, you didn’t want to take back that flint and give them some fishing gear? I can’t for the life of me figure out why, Jeff! Your thoughts on the proposed re-swap of fishing gear for flint?
JEFF PROBST: Well, first of all, I loved it! I was so happy that Drew felt comfortable enough to go for it because it was a fun moment. I really think he thought I might be swayed, but let’s be clear: There was zero chance of that trade happening. READ FULL STORY

Alexandra Breckenridge has landed a recurring role on The Walking Dead, EW has confirmed.
The familial relations at Grey Sloan are getting a little twisty on Grey’s Anatomy this season.
In case you’ve gotten a little lost since the show returned, the new head of cardio, Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary), is the daughter Ellis Grey (Kate Burton) gave up for adoption, unbeknownst to Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.), who happens to be the father. That makes Maggie the half-sister to Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and the half-sister-in-law to Derek (Patrick Dempsey). Sorted? Great, because Meredith has confirmed that Maggie is telling the truth, while Richard finally revealed to Maggie that he’s her father. Say it with me: Drama!
First we lost Will. Then we lost Lockhart/Gardner. And now, we just found out that season 6 of The Good Wife will be Kalinda’s last. It’s a shocking loss for longtime fans of the show—yet its impact isn’t as bad as it could have been. Or rather, it isn’t what it would have been just a few seasons ago. READ FULL STORY
Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Tuesday’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Heroes fighting themselves is all the rage right now.
During Tuesday’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) met her match when she was forced to fight… herself. Here’s how it all went down: After Coulson (Clark Gregg) and May went undercover to recover a priceless painting with the mysterious alien language inscribed on the back, they ran into Talbot (Adrian Pasdar), who enlisted their help in deciphering the writing instead of arresting them on sight.
However, it wasn’t actually Talbot, but Bakshi (Simon Kassianides) wearing a high-tech mask. When May discovers the truth, she’s knocked out so Agent 33 (Maya Stojan) can impersonate her. Naturally, it isn’t long before Coulson deduces that this isn’t his longtime often-grumpy friend, which leads to an epic battle of May vs. May when the original escapes capture.
Despite their bonding session throughout the mission, Coulson is very insistent that May must kill him because he doesn’t want the alien serum to make him go crazy like it did with Garrett (Bill Paxton). Will she go through with it? EW caught up with the actress to get the scoop:
- 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' teaser next week
