That 'Revenge' finale: My. Dear. God. Is [SPOILER] really a goner?

Revenge has packed more twists and turns into its first 22 episodes than the most winding Hamptons highway. But in the promotional build-up to tonight’s finale, “Reckoning,” ABC seemed to be setting the bar impossibly high with a series of ads touting it as “mind-blowing,”  “earth-shattering,” and “unbelievable” among their more sedate superlatives. Now it seems like they were underselling it. “Reckoning” featured the deaths of possibly three major castmembers, one wholly unexpected return, a breakup, a showdown with über-villain The White-Haired Man, and a revelation about Emily’s parentage. But not the revelation about Emily’s parentage you thought you saw coming. READ FULL STORY

'Revenge' season finale: Chat live with Gabriel Mann tonight at 10:00 p.m. ET

When we last saw Nolan Ross, the tech-whiz billionaire found himself in extreme peril. After 21 episodes of playing the nuisance to his fellow Hamptonites–hacking into computers, installing his trademark whale-cam into every mansion worth spying on, lending his snark to Emily Thorne’s takedown of the rich and powerful–he got outwitted himself. James Morrison’s villain, The White-Haired Man, broke into Nolan’s house and quickly put him in a sleeper hold. If ever there was a gasp-worthy moment that was it, because actor Gabriel Mann has turned Nolan, a character who’s part Mark Zuckerberg, part Oscar Wilde, into one of the most popular on the show. This can’t possibly be how it ends for him, right?

Well, luckily for all of us we’re going to find out Nolan’s fate tonight in “Reckoning,” the season finale of Revenge. And adding his play-by-play commentary to every twist and turn while you watch the episode? Actor Gabriel Mann himself, who’s joining us for an EW.com live chat at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.

Most popular baby names: 'Twilight' holds top spot for boys' names, is toppled in the girls category

The Social Security Administration has released its list of 2011′s most popular baby names, and Twilight reigns supreme in the boys’ category as Jacob stays in the top spot for the 13th straight year. Isabella, however, has been ousted in favor of Sophia. A surprise resurgence of nostalgia for The Golden Girls? Probably not. Sophia has been gaining popularity over the last decade as a strong, traditional, ends-in-A name with celebrity cachet (Sophia Loren, Sofia Coppola); as with other things, a little Sofia Vergara likely made all the difference.

Celebrity kids continue to have an impact on naming trends across the board as top spots went once again to Ava (daughter or Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe) and Jayden (a name favored by both Will Smith and Britney Spears). The biggest jump went to Mason, a name that wasn’t even on the leaderboard last year. It appears Kourtney Kardashian’s son has spawned a new generation of little guys since it came out of nowhere to take the number 2 spot. It’s a big win for the Kardashian kwest to konquer the world, though there’s still ground to gain as the more traditional spelling of Chloe once again edged out Khloé with a K. Better luck next year, kids!

Beyond those names, it’s the usual suspects. Aiden and Emma — once boosted by hot sitcoms Sex and the City and Friends — have become established faves. With long-time top-10 inhabitants Emily and Daniel suddenly gaining prominence on Revenge, might Sophia and Jacob have some competition for the 2012 titles? Only time — and the fall TV season — will tell. See the full lists below. READ FULL STORY

TV trendlet alert! Older characters are gettin' it on

Poor, poor Sally Draper. As if dealing with Betty “I’ll cut your fingers off!” Francis, Don “benign neglect” Draper, and Bobby “wait, so I shouldn’t lick the stove?” Draper weren’t bad enough, now she’s seen something that will undoubtedly traumatize her for life. At the end of last night’s episode of Mad Menspoiler alert! — Don’s daughter accidentally spied Roger Sterling getting, er, a French lesson from Marie, her stepgrandmother. Sacré bleu!

Roger and Marie’s tryst is more than the event that will drive Sally back to Dr. Edna‘s couch. It’s also the latest example of a mini-trend sweeping through all our favorite TV shows: Old people having sex. Well, old-ish, at least. Mad Men actor John Slattery is 49 in real life; it’s quite possible that he’s a few years younger than the character he plays. Roger’s partner in crime was played by guest star Julia Ormond, who’s 47. Sure, neither one is exactly knocking at death’s door — but they’re both much more seasoned than the bright young things who usually knock boots on TV.

And they aren’t alone. Here’s a brief survey of all the relatively aged couples who hooked up onscreen last week:
