'Supernatural' star Jensen Ackles on forgiveness, the internal effects of the Mark of Cain: 'Dean's putting on blinders and taking steroids'

Last we saw of the handsome Winchester brothers, things were … complicated. Let’s just say that Supernatural‘s ninth season is full of battles: Sam’s inner battle, Dean’s inner battle, the brothers’ battle with each other, the battle in hell, and the brewing battle in heaven, to name a few. So as we head into the end of the season, what can we expect from our favorite hunters, their angelic sidekick, and a blood-addicted demon?

For starters, Tuesday night’s episode focuses around the search for The First Blade, aka the weapon that pairs with the Mark of Cain to kill Abaddon. But do we want Dean to find the blade considering we’re yet to see the consequences we know come with the Mark of Cain? We’re not so sure, which is why we caught up with Jensen Ackles to talk about the end of the season, Dean’s dilemma, and all things pertaining to that pesky (but kind of badass) Mark of Cain:

'Bates Motel': Carlton Cuse talks the mother of a twist revealed in latest episode -- EXCLUSIVE

[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.

Tyler Blackburn will return to 'Pretty Little Liars' in season 5

We knew he couldn’t stay away for long.

EW has confirmed that Tyler Blackburn will return as a series regular for Pretty Little Liars‘ fifth season. Blackburn will reprise his role as Caleb Rivers, Hanna’s ex-boyfriend who left town to investigate his family’s history (and so much more) in Ravenswood. But with Ravenswood‘s cancellation, it sounds like Blackburn is ready to get back on the “Who is ‘A’?” bandwagon.

Pretty Little Liars season 5 will premiere Tuesday, June 10 at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.

Juan Pablo loses out on 'Dancing with the Stars' gig

Looks like ABC’s Dancing with the Stars dodged a bullet: EW has learned there was serious talk about having Juan Pablo Galavis — aka the man many are calling the worst Bachelor evercompete in the new season that kicks off Monday.

During Monday’s episode of After the Rose, Galavis seemed to indicate that he had something big planned since choosing Nikki Ferrell in the season 18 finale. He then spoke of a “drastic change” to his plans but wouldn’t elaborate.

One key insider told EW that DWTS wanted to include Galavis in this season’s cast, which includes Drew Carey, NeNe Leakes, Candace Cameron and Danica McKellar, but it was quietly nixed. Spokesmen for DWTS and Warner Bros. TV, which produces the Bachelor franchise, declined to comment but it seems likely they saw Galavis as a continued liability, especially given his homophobic comments from earlier this season. Just last week, he used a derogatory term about the developmentally disabled in a tweet, which he later deleted.

Galavis has often blamed the language barrier as an excuse for his questionable choice of words.

Several participants from the Bachelor franchise has participated on DWTS in the past with great success. Melissa Rycroft, for example, was the champion of the all-star edition in 2012, while Bachelor Sean Lowe competed in season 16 last year.

Claire Holt no longer a series regular on 'The Originals'

And then there were two.

EW has confirmed that Tuesday night was Claire Holt’s last episode as a series regular on The Originals, meaning the Original sister has officially left the building, at least in some capacity.

Holt no longer being a regular leaves the door open for her to guest star in future recurring arcs, even as early as sometime later this season, we’re told. However, as of right now, nothing is certain in terms of her potential return.

Both Holt and executive producer Julie Plec are set to attend the PaleyFest panel on March 22.

'Once Upon a Time' actress will eat brains on 'iZombie'

Tinkerbell has an, um, savory new role on the CW.

Rose McIver, who played the pixie-dust throwing fairy on ABC’s Once Upon a Time – and will also replace Kiernan Shipka in Lifetime’s Flowers in the Attic sequel – has been cast in the lead role of the CW pilot iZombie. Wait until you read what’s in store for her!

She’ll play Olivia “Liv” Moore, a “med student-turned-zombie who takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity,” according to The CW’s official description. “But with each brain Live consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories. With the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head.”

The drama is based on characters from the DC Comics’s Vertigo imprint, created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, and was developed by Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars), Diane Ruggiero, Danielle Stokdyk, and Dan Etheridge.
