'How I Met Your Mother' recap: The Robin

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen tonight’s How I Met Your Mother, do not continue reading. As the word “recap” implies, we’ll be talking about the episode — and you don’t want this one spoiled for you. Trust us.

'Gossip Girl' series finale: Talk about it here! (Updated)

EARLIER: Gossip Girl has been a long, lovely, lascivious road — and it all comes to an end tonight.

After six seasons, the series that taught us about fashion, friends, and fake smiles will retire like an out-of-season handbag, but I beg you not to ruin your mascara with tears. (Also, tears are for the weak.) Instead, let us celebrate the morally reprehensible journey we’ve just taken and toast our frenemies from the Upper East Side.

I invite you to use this space to discuss the show’s series finale. At some point this evening — after your friendly Gossip recapper rediscovers the will to live in a world without the likes of Blair, Chuck, Serena, Dan…I guess Nate, too — this post will be updated to include a full recap of the action.

UPDATE: Recap below. -Xoxo READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl' recap: Beginning of the end

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t watched tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl you missed out on a wild soapy ride — complete with a death! So if you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t read on.

'Scandal' shooter revealed. Did you see that coming?!

WARNING: Do not read on if you haven’t watched this week’s episode of Scandal. MAJOR, MAJOR spoilers ahead.

This week’s Scandal was an intense hour that delivered an answer to the question that’s been plaguing fans of the show for the past seven days: Who shot the President?

The answer was shocking to say the least….


'Supernatural' recap: Cartoons and confessions

Last night’s Supernatural was, in one word, bizarre. In two words? Bizarre and fantastic.

The episode centered around Sam, Dean and new hunter Cas looking into a series of strange deaths in which the victims’ deaths were seemingly ripped right out of a classic cartoon — a man’s heart exploded out of his chest, someone was killed by an anvil, etc. But, surprisingly, as far as cases go, this one didn’t have too many twists and turns.

The trio was fairly quick to zero in on their father’s former friend Fred Jones, an elderly psychokinetic who was now catatonic and living in a retirement home. They realized that the man was messing with reality and creating a “bubble of weird” that would create these strange scenarios around him. (Note that not all of the strange happenings were deadly. See: exploding cake.) READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: Heaven Only Knows

ALERT: If you haven’t watched tonight’s Supernatural, we recommend you avert your eyes. All the rest of you may proceed…

I have so much to say about tonight’s episode of Supernatural, but I’m pretty much obligated to start with the episode’s most important moment: CAS IS BACK! CAS IS BACK! CAS IS BACK!

Yes, we knew it was coming. (Thanks, promo department!) However, Dean did not, so when he started seeing Cas all over the place — alongside the road, outside their window — the poor boy thought he was losing it. And Sam quickly caught on that something was off about Dean, too. Surprisingly, Dean ‘fessed up about his Cas sightings fairly quickly — and, by the way, I loved that. These two would bring home gold if avoiding problems was ever an Olympic sport, so it was incredibly refreshing to see Dean and Sam actually communicating about an issue. It only took 8 seasons!

Not long after, they learned that Dean’s vision of Cas were not visions at all — because the angel was back. For real. And he had a beard. (Movember?)

The boys probably could have grilled Cas forever, but there were definitely bigger fish to fry. Not only were they tracking a case involving several people who went missing under strange circumstances (weird weather patterns, no immediate connections among the missing), but soon Kevin’s mom called asking for help.

'Gossip Girl' recap: Dumping ground

Some TV shows get a kick out of having annual Halloween episodes, but on Gossip Girl, it’s common practice to dress up and pretend to be something you’re not. Luckily, the Upper East Side has its own version of a Pagan holiday — Cotillion! Except this annual tradition has less virgin sacrifices — because let’s face it, where are we going to find a virgin among this crowd?

Alas, this parade of “innocence,” in which Sage was set to participate (HAHA!), was the focal point of all the action this week.


'Gossip Girl' recap: Keeping it in the family

After six seasons of Gossip Girl, it’s hardly a surprise when we learn that the new boyfriend on the block has been around the block. But I had to feel a little pain for poor Serena van der Floozy in tonight’s episode because I can’t imagine it’s fun to learn that one of the stops on your boyfriend’s tour de man-slut was your own mother.

But that’s exactly what happened when the Spectator blasted a story confirming that Steven (Barry Watson) had a once hooked up with Lily. That face you’re making after reading that sentence — that was pretty much Serena and Sage’s reactions, too. READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: Vampirates!

It’s been a legitimately long time since I’ve begged a television show — out loud — to continue after it finished airing an episode. It’s not a logical request by any means — that I know. There’s no point in me using vocal power to say “NO! Don’t STOP! Show another episode now!” But sometimes it just comes out against my will, and that’s what happened tonight after Supernatural.

I went into tonight’s episode thinking I knew everything that was going to happen. (Dean saves Benny; Benny is thankful but needs more help; Dean calls Sam; Benny meets Sam; Sam hates Benny.) At it’s core, that’s what happened, but the beauty of a great episode is that even when you think you know what’s going to happen, it delivers surprises (Oh, Benny…), great moments (brotherly bickering between Sam and Dean!) and lots of storyline advancement! Of course, I’d expect nothing less since the episode was written by Ben Edlund, a fandom fave. And he’s a fave for a good reason…

So, to get this recap on the road: Dean did go save Benny. He had called Dean after getting into a fight with four members of his old “crew.” At first, it wasn’t made entirely clear why there was so much hostility between Ben and these people from his past, but later, a much deeper backstory was revealed.

'Parks and Recreation' recap: Then he walked in...

SPOILERS! I’m not going to bury the lead here — who gasped during tonight’s Parks and Recreation? Who cried? Who lost all hope that Ben Wyatt would one day walk out of their television and ask for your hand in marriage? Answer to all three? This girl!

In reference to the last one, I actually knew that would never happen — because Ben is not my true love. He’s Leslie’s. (Also, not a real person. But whatever.)

And in tonight’s episode, Ben came to realize what many have known since the geeky state auditor watched a beautiful, plucky, flu-plagued Leslie deliver an unforgettable speech in season 3. Leslie is the person he’s meant to spend his life with, and tonight, he made sure she knew that. He proposed. (Sigh.)  READ FULL STORY
