This is a stressful time to be a Vampire Diaries fan. Not only is next week the season finale, but Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have ended their adorably zen, fedora-laden relationship of the past three years. READ FULL STORY

Small towns are so much more interesting on television. Their quirks are quirkier, their drama is more dramatic and their faults somehow make them more endearing. But there’s another feature we’ve spotted in the hit small town dramas we’re currently obsessed with: The cops in these series aren’t all that skilled at, well, being cops.
Case in point: Bates Motel. Sure, the cops of White Pine Bay, Ore. are corrupt, but they also don’t even seem to know how to work a crime scene. The first thing that the Sheriff did upon arriving at a murder scene in this Monday’s episode was touch the murder weapon and then the dead body … with his bare hands. Surely even small town peacekeepers know about latex gloves, right? Assuming they have cable, I’m betting they’ve at least seen Law & Order: SVU and could have learned a thing or two about contaminating a crime scene.

Last night’s flashback-tastic New Girl episode, “Virgins,” was a treasure trove of music to set the mood — some songs more successfully than others — as the loftmates looked back on their first sexual encounters. Anchoring the eclectic mix (which ranged from Sublime to Boyz II Men and even figured in Lisa Loeb), Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Could Happen” kicked in during a fan-fulfilling scene between Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel).
It got us thinking of some of our favorite first-time anthems from shows of yore. Below, our ultimate Spotify playlist of coupling tracks! READ FULL STORY
The Vampire Diaries’ Originals spin-off may not have spurred a spike in the ratings, but it certainly inspired some heated debate. Fans have taken to the comments section of the EW.com recap in droves to sound off on some of the more polarizing (surprise pregnancy, anyone?) plot points featured in Thursday night’s backdoor pilot. Now, with the CW announcing a full season pick-up for The Originals, I break down the most pivotal storylines and give you the chance to vote on what you loved (or loathed). READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: 'Game of Thrones' and 'Doctor Who' return, Katherine's back on 'The Vampire Diaries', and more
We might as well call this premiere week. Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, and The Voice are all back. Nashville returns from a long hiatus. Oh, and that movie where Ryan Gosling has a ton of tattoos that you’ve been thinking might be cool to check out is finally here.
Whether you’re planning an elaborate Game of Thrones party, still debating the Vampire Diaries dilemma that ended so many friendships, or just plotting the best possible way to get Matt Smith your phone number, this week has something for everyone. And we do mean everyone! We start with a salute to strong female characters from Broadway musicals and end with a show where the likelihood of blood (and/or sex) is 100%. Here’s what to do for the days in between.
Kristin Chenoweth: The Dames of Broadway… All of ‘Em, 8 p.m., PBS
OK, hear me out. There are just so many TV options on Sunday! Revenge, The Walking Dead, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time! So, you’re going to watch your favorite. But if you choose to DVR any other show, why not give Chenoweth a chance! She’s got charm, pizzazz, and oh man that VOICE.
The Voice, 8 p.m., NBC
Speaking of voices, the best use of spinning chairs on television returns. We’re all excited to see if Shakira and Usher can carry their weight as judges. Plus, we get to hear a pretty seductive version of ”Sexy and I Know It.”
The Mindy Project, 9:30 p.m., Fox
Ellie Kemper guest stars! We can only hope that she becomes a regular on the show next season after The Office ends. Maybe if we all ask hard enough, Kemper and Kaling will bring their pop group, Subtle Sexuality, to the show eventually.
Nashville, 10 p.m., NBC
After a month off, we get to find out what’s up with Scarlett and Gunnar! Let’s hope it’s steamy.
The Vampire Diaries, 8 p.m., The CW
Klaus is shirtless. Caroline’s looking vengeful. We get the Katherine vs. Elena (sans humanity) scene we’ve been waiting for. Plus, we’re kind of loving Rebekah and Elena as partners in crime, right?
The Place Beyond the Pines hits theaters
Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendez, and Rose Bryne star in this movie about fathers and sons directed by Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine). Come for Ryan Gosling’s abs, stay for his (and Cooper’s) strong acting. Watch some scenes from the movie here to get excited.
Doctor Who, 8 p.m., BBC America
You saw our two covers, paper dolls, and exclusive video, now it’s time for the premiere. How is Clara going to fare as a companion? Will she be able to fill the Pond-sized hole in our hearts? And who exactly is she? Be prepared to get taken through space and time by a man in a bow-tie.
Game of Thrones, 9 p.m., HBO
We’ve been preparing for this for a while and we know you have too. If the epic trailer, which basically looks like a movie, doesn’t make you want to watch consider this: Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) goes ”dragon fishing” on a sea voyage.
