How Should SOA Kill Off Gemma? Scandal Prez on Grey's? Ichabod's Son Lives? And More Qs!

Carrie DiariesWe’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Sleepy Hollow, NCIS, Arrow and Chicago Fire!

1 | Did The Carrie Diaries‘ Larissa/Samantha hook-up — with its handcuffs, whip, videocamera and promise of Harlan’s imminent third-party arrival — raise some eyebrows considering we’re talking about an 8 pm CW show?

2 | How can Saturday Night Live‘s winter finale — which is still a week away — possibly improve on special guests Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen? Also, isn’t “Weekend Update” critic Jebediah Atkinson, when removed of almost all old-timey context, basically just David Spade’s “Hollywood Minute” in a powdered wig? And which was more fun: trying to guess where the Anchorman cast would pop up next or spotting the cue-card guy in not one but two sketches? Lastly, in the Santa sketch, didn’t Paul Rudd look like the ghost of David Duchovny’s future?

3 | Did Once Upon a Time‘s Blue Fairy get her name from being generally icy to people? And has Wendy basically “lost” her kid brothers, since they grew up without her?

4 | How did Homeland‘s Brody know that the instant he told Akbari he had been sent to snuff him, the IRG boss wouldn’t simply yell for his guards? And given that very real possibility, why relay the intel on Javardi at all, before going for the kill?

5 | Can Masters of Sex please work in more opportunities for Lizzy Caplan to sing in future episodes?

Sleepy Hollow6 | Who else thinks Sleepy Hollow‘s Jeremy (aka Ichabod Jr.) isn’t really and truly dead? Also, as a reader pointed out, how was it so sunny past 7 pm in New York, in December?

7 | Had you even considered what Almost Human‘s androids had going on “down there” before Kennex’s comments this week? And now, can you focus on anything else?

8 | Fun and refreshing as The Sing-Off is, wouldn’t it be easier to handle its multiple-times-per-week schedule after the current incarnations of The Voice and The X Factor have ended? Maybe next year a just-before-Christmas, ending-in-early-January run would be better, no?

9 | Were you rooting for Trophy Wife‘s Diane to keep as a pet that affectionate coyote who spent Christmas Eve at Kate and Pete’s?

10 | True or false: This week’s NCIS, with Gibbs, Fornell, their shared ex and soooo much inappropriate banter/texts, was funnier than many sitcoms.

11 | What is your fantasy death scenario for Sons of Anarchy‘s Gemma next season (’cause you know she ain’t long for this world)? And does Unser deserve a similar fate for figuratively handing her a loaded gun with Tara’s name on it and then disappearing — leaving the keys to his truck behind?! — to fetch her some Tylenol?

Chicago Fire12 | Does anyone really think Chicago Fire will kill off Casey? And how great was it to see Dawson and Shay being friends again?

13 | Did anyone else notice that both the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Arrow this week had their comic book heroes battling genetically modified super-strong baddies?

14 | Which Arrow moment made you geek out hardest: Oliver trying on his new mask… the reveal that (an angry) Slade Wilson is behind Brother Blood’s super-serum scheme… or witnessing the incident that will turn Barry Allen into The Flash?

15 | On The Tomorrow People, why would Ultra have saline on hand in their interrogation room? And who can blame Astrid for making eyes at John?

16 | Did any Nashville fans notice that there was no one behind the parking lot bandstand that Deacon & Co. were playing on? No techies, no engineers, no groupies, no fans trying to get a closer look at the country music star playing in the local parking lot. (Or maybe Nashville residents are numbed to such things?) And did you feel a little robbed that the show only gave us the glum Will-Brent bedroom aftermath, without (if we’re not being too subtle) any of the before or middle?

17 | Which coven of witches was more badass this week: the ladies of American Horror Story, or the fang-tastic bunch on Sleepy Hollow? And speaking of Coven, how exactly did Myrtle restore Cordelia’s eyesight without repeating the grisly mess she made with the council members?

18 | Wait, was that President Fitzgerald Grant calling Grey’s Anatomy‘s Derek…?! Shonda-verse crossover! And how relieved were you when Leah — aka the Grey’s Anatomy character likeliest to go all Fatal Attraction on us — decided against going to April’s wedding to declare that she was obsessively in love with Arizona? After all, isn’t one bats#*! crazy newbie (Shane) more than enough?

Reign19 | Would it kill Reign‘s Nostradamus to crack a smile every once in a while? And wasn’t this week’s “big” death kind of a wash? (Did you even know her name before the episode?)

20 | Was anyone else a little nervous that Parenthood‘s Kristina and Adam would get caught during their public display of anger toward Bob Little? And why did Julia think the proper way to remove Ed from her life was to go visit him?

21 | Flash poll: Are we loving or loathing the ubiquitous Sprint ads where James Earl Jones and Malcolm McDowell reenact teenage girls’ ridiculous phone conversations and Facebook friend requests?

    #6. Along with Sleepy Hollow’s New York still being sunny past 7:00 in winter, there’s also all that Spanish moss festooning their trees–though it actually only grows in the South.

  2. Beckstle says:

    Love the commercials!

  3. J.Norman says:

    #9 Technically, that was a wolf,
    Maybe the wolf could be worked into a few story lines, but it would work better with Jackie (the 2nd wife). To have a wolf as a pet would be a hard sell with the much more sensible Diane (1st wife)
    But I’m afraid that too many advocacy groups would object to having a wolf around the house. Mothers groups would fear that children would want a wolf of their own and PETA would object to the Wolf! being mistreated by being out of its natural environment.

  4. Donna says:

    Casey will survive I’m sure ….. Unless he is the Blind Item from a month or so back :-0

    It was Nice to see Gibbs doing some funny stuff on NCIS this week too and not leaving all the funny to MW an PP

  5. Britta Unfiltered says:

    4. I don’t think Brody went in there with the intention of killing him. The way I saw it was he went in there with the purpose of giving him the information about Javadi and flipping on his country. Then Akbari started talking about how in that room he and Abu Nazir had discussed turning Brody into a terrorist, and I think it all just kind of hit him how these people had ruined his life and destroyed his relationships with his family, and they needed to pay for that. But…I could be wrong, I guess I didn’t think of it that way, where he went in there with the intention of killing Akbari.
    11. What the crap was Unser thinking there. That still bugs me he could be so stupid. That scene was probably not the best writing, because if the audience can see what’s going to happen a mile away and that Gemma is tricking him, why couldn’t this guy who used to be a cop see it? I feel like as a former cop, he should have been more intuitive and observant than he was being.
    21. In love.

  6. V says:

    Idk why people want “death” for Gemma when Jax confronting her about her sins and then leaving her behind is the worst punishment for her. Her own guilt will consume her and she’ll either live the rest of her life alone and miserable or will commit suicide. She definitely moved from Gertrude to Lady MacBeth status, so.

  7. NP says:

    #6 – I didn’t notice the whole 7 pm thing but generally that relates to one of my biggest TV peeves – on every show it seems like when people are getting ready for school/work it’s always nice and sunny. How is this possible – do they live in some cushy world where school and work start incredibly late? The suns barely up when we get up for most of the school year (oh – and they all seem to have plenty of time for breakfast and to interact with one another)

  8. John 1138 says:

    21? LOVE, I save so much time FFWDing through them I’d waste were the ads actually tolerable.

  9. John 1138 says:

    IDK, with Jeremy having existed Ichabod gets current day ancestors? Otherwise wouldn’t the Gollum have been out somewhere protecting him still?

  10. Luis says:

    14. The Slade reveal was soooooooooo awesome, but I still loved the Barry Allen lightning bolt the best!

    21. The Sprint commercials are the best thing in the universe since the Beck Bennett AT&T commercials!
