'Dancing With the Stars': Week 10 is liiiiiiive!

It’s time for one final Monday Funday on the dance floor.

The final four couples are all set to compete one last time to win the coveted Mirrorball Trophy in tonight’s Dancing With the Stars. Each couple will perform two dances: The judges’ pick, which will be the same style they danced during the Switch-Up, and then a freestyle, which ABC promises will come complete with “special effects and lots of surprises.” Here’s hoping the animated Disney characters make their return to the floor!

But animated fun aside, at the end of the night, one couple will be eliminated before the winner is revealed on Tuesday night.

You all know the drill: Talk about the show here while it’s on, and I’ll update this post with the results later tonight. Then afterward, head on over for my full recap.

Update: James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd left in the show’s final (shocking) elimination before a champion is crowned. Read my full recap here!

'Reign': The highs and lows of season 1

Oh Reign, how I love thee. I mean, how could I not when it has been a season full of ridiculous sexcapades, a crazy (and often pantsless) king, a conniving queen, and a beautifully complicated teenage love story? I simply cannot get enough.

But now that the season has come to an end with a life-threatening birth, and an even more life-threatening plague, it’s time we look back on what worked for the show’s freshman season and what could use a bit of tweaking moving forward.

First things first, bring Julien back! And furthermore … READ FULL STORY

Matt Davis returns to 'Vampire Diaries,' and all the ways that finale was a game-changer

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season 5 finale of The Vampire Diaries, stop reading now!

I remember about a year ago, Julie Plec tweeted that she’d come up with ending of season 5 of The Vampire Diaries – and in her words, it was a “mind f—.” Guess what? She wasn’t lying.

What happened in last night’s finale — if I’m interpreting it correctly — changes everything we know about the show. In the destruction of the Other Side, not only was Alaric able to come back two seasons after his death, but fans said goodbye to two main characters as Bonnie and Damon held hands and seemingly found peace. But that’s not all that happened: When Tyler came back from the Other Side, he realized that his healing powers had left him. Was he human again?

Assuming all of these plots stick, season 6 could look very, very different from the world we know. Stefan, Elena, Alaric, Tyler, and Enzo could all be human, though some of you argue that Tyler was only human because he died that way. Or more specifically, that he was back to being a werewolf. If that’s the case, then only Tyler will really have changed. Regardless, it’s a lot for viewers to wrap their heads around, but there is one thing I think all Vampire Diaries fans can agree on: We are so excited to have Alaric back. And yes, we’ve confirmed that Matt Davis will be a series regular next season. READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy': Did Cristina get a proper send-off? -- POLL

Last night on Grey’s Anatomy, Cristina Yang hopped in a cab, headed to the airport, and left Seattle to start her new life as a director of cardiothoracic surgery in Switzerland. Oh, and she had Shane by her side. But was the exit good enough for Cristina Yang, one of television’s greatest characters? I’m on the fence.

On one hand, I liked how the episode sort of downplayed her goodbye. The show had been building to it for weeks — and since it wasn’t as if she was dying, keeping things simple helped make Cristina’s farewell felt more realistic. But on the other hand, I felt the episode’s explosion storyline was totally unnecessary. All it did was pull attention away from Cristina. No, she wasn’t dying — but she was moving to freaking Switzerland. It’s not as if she packed up and settled two states away.

'Arrow' finale recap: The hero this city deserves

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season finale of Arrow, stop reading now!

My heart can’t take it. And those of you who watch this show with me every week know exactly what I’m about to say: That Olicity scene was faked?! I literally feel like I’ve just been broken up with. And yes, that does make me re-evaluate my life a little bit. But the good news is that this finale was so much more than that one scene. It was action-packed, it provided closure, and it gave us a lot to look forward to. Let’s save this city for one last time in season 2, shall we? READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy': Why Meredith and Cristina are the best female friends on TV

'The Originals': The highs and lows of season 1

Coming away from a show as successful as The Vampire Diaries, viewers had high expectations for The Originals‘ first season. And spoiler: It exceeded those expectations. After a more-than-intriguing backdoor pilot, The Originals quickly became one of the most highly-anticipated spin-offs, only to later follow through on every one of its promises. The show was dark, it was twisted, and it was ridiculously delicious.

Sure, the first season had its highs and lows. There are always one or two storylines that don’t catch on, but for the most part, The Originals delivered an intriguing season, culminating in an unforgettable finale. Looking back at the season as a whole, here’s what we consider its highs and lows:
