Did Revenge Death Top Grey's? Did Glee Hit Its Highest Note? TV's Prettiest Bride? And More Qs!

Popular TV Shows 2012 Mad MenWe’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, here are some queries we’re going to lob at you, from shows including Once Upon a Time, Glee, Revenge and Grey’s Anatomy!

1 | Considering she embodied this ginormous power supply, it was a bit too easy to take out Fringe‘s Olivia, wasn’t it? Seriously, we’ve had more difficulty unplugging our laptop from the wall.

2 | Who else was traumatized by the sight of Rory Gilmore’s boobs — didn’t they look digitally altered, as if something had been erased? — on Mad Men?

3 | Given the events of the Once Upon a Time finale — and seeing as how her ABC pilot didn’t make the cut — can we assume that Emilie de Ravin will be full-on recurring in Season 2 as Belle? Also: Was anyone half-expecting Jennifer Morrison’s Emma to diagnose the mysteriously ailing Henry with sarcoidosis and/or lupus?

4 | Why did Desperate Housewives Lynette, Bree and Gaby all get flash-forward glimpses of their futures, but Susan didn’t? Did she get into some horrific accident as she drove off Wisteria Lane?

5 | Girls‘ Marnie has never been to her boyfriend’s apartment and she couldn’t believe he watched porn? Talk about unrealistic.

6 | Yowza, could Rose Leslie’s Game of Thrones bawdy Wilding woman be any bigger a departure from her sweet, industrious Downton Abbey maid?

7 | Isn’t it a shame that ABC cancelled GCB, seeing how it would’ve provided a great opportunity for the network to hire Dancing With the Stars sensation William Levy — and in turn find excuses to get his shirt off?

8 | In the battle of the TV brides, who looked better: How I Met Your Mother‘s Robin, Hart of Dixie‘s Lemon, Mike‘s Molly or Criminal Minds‘ JJ? Speaking of Dixie, can Wade be soaking wet in a tank top, or in a suit, in every episode?

9 | Is there some loophole that How I Met Your Mother can use to make Victoria the mum?

10 | Who was more infuriating on the Gossip Girl season finale? We’re tied between Serena and Lily.

11 | Any other House fans mad that the “Wilson’s survivor patients” scene got ‘em all misty-eyed… only to be a ruse?

12 | Couldn’t Smash‘s Karen have worn the fitted costumes she had on in all of this season’s fantasy numbers? Oh, wait. And who else was disappointed that Eileen missed an opportunity to toss a drink into Jerry’s face? Isn’t that supposed to be their “thing”?

13 | Was Lea Michele’s “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now” the best vocal performance in Glee history, or would it merely rank in the Top 5? Also, did Dot Marie Jones pretty much seal up the Guest Actress Emmy with her sensational work as Coach Beiste in “Props”?

14 | Does Cougar Town‘s Thanksmissween rival The O.C.‘s Chrismukkah?

15 | For the love of all that’s holy, isn’t it time American Idol gave Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” a permanent vacation from the show’s set list?

16 | Were any of this week’s TV deaths more gut-wrenching than that of Revenge‘s sweet pup Sammy? (Yes, even more so than your heartbreaker, Grey’s!) And did Nick Wechsler destroy in that scene or what?

17 | What is with Modern Family giving everyone random nervous ticks? First Claire’s “bad news smile,” and now Phil’s blinking?

18 | Were the noises worse than the images on this week’s Grey’s Anatomy finale? But as powerful (and tragic) as the big death was, didn’t the fact that it came so early in the hour deflate a bit of the effect? Or was the point to have us wondering if a second shoe (meaning doctor) would drop? And is it merely a coincidence that the show pink-slipped two actors on the heels of the original cast inking new (and presumably lucrative) multi-year contracts?

19 | Why didn’t Scandal‘s Olivia wear a wire when confronting Billy Chambers about killing Quinn’s reporter beau? The guy sang like a flippin’ canary! Plus, how did she not get one drop of blood on her perfectly white coat throughout that clean-up ordeal? And seriously, who could “Quinn Perkins” be that it’s so fantastically hush-hush?

20 | Do you think other sitcom creators cry when they witness something like Community‘s 8-bit videogame episode? (And how many Nintendo units do you think were fetched from the cellar and dusted off after that outing?) Also, everyone teared up when Troy was moving out the apartment and saying his goodbyes, right? But on a more serious note: At what point does the show’s portrayal of Abed as rather disturbed become sad versus “zany”?

21 | Is Criss really the guy Liz Lemon is going to find her happily ever after with on 30 Rock? We’re all for it (love James Marsden!), but there’s still another season to contend with, so excuse us for being a bit skeptical.

    I’m not a dog person, so no, Lexie’s death was far worse than some dog. Even if I were a dog person, a human character that’s been a part of show for years is far more sad than a dog on a show that’s been on for one season. Dumb question!

  2. Trina says:

    Re # 2 – Rory’s boobs are far less disturbing then the image of her Gilmore friend Paris aka Lisa Weil’s being hoisted up out of the river then on public view in the morgue on Scandal. It’s a shame her story line was not longer, she’s a great actress.

    I won’t be able to see Alexis Bledel again as the sweet girl I met on Gilmore Girls and I have to out this clear: I didn’t see the scene on Mad Men, but I got enough just knowing it. I’m in shock!

  4. Maryam says:

    Never watching Greys again after what they did to Lexie. Sammy dying was so sad. My heart was in my stomach afterwards. Nick and Emily really brought in that scene. Anyways I would never want to see Daniel and Emily end up together. They make absolutely no sense.

  5. azerty says:

    In Grey’s Anatomy, of course I was disappointed by the death of Lexie but not really sad like season 5 ou 6 finales… I think the lack of music made the episode anticlimatic. GA is famous for the great songs, specially during season finales but not in this one. With a perfect music I think the episode could have been way better.

  6. HannahC says:

    #8 JJ is definitely the prettiest bride, she looks absolutely stunning & looks the best by far!!

    Jeez Team TV Line. That’s cold to say Sammy’s death was more of a heartbreaker than Lexie’s. Revenge is my new favorite show but Sammy’s screen time was miniscule while Lexie, who isn’t even my favorite on GA, had been on for 5 years. Talk about kicking the actress when she is down. Wouldn’t she give you an interview? Did the two actors get fired for sure? That’s not what Rhimes long tweet implied. How about getting the real scoop for us?

    I haven’t watched idol for many seasons now, but I’ve been waiting all my life for the perfect Aerosmith/Permanent Vacation reference. #loveit #ohwaitimnotontwitter

  9. Zeke says:

    It’s actually very believable that Marnie on Girls wouldn’t have ever been to her ex’s apartment. New York and it’s surrounding area isn’t technically that large, but it takes forever to get anywhere. If he was willing to go to her place as often as he did, why would she waste her time schlepping to his? My ex only ever came to my place once. I went to his at least four times a week though while we dated.
