True Detective

Did True Detective Evoke Alias? Can GH's Luke Stay Gone? Is Hannibal Doc Dead? Risky Robot? And More TV Qs

We’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 I Am Cait, True Detective, Humans and Mistresses!

1 | Are we 100-percent certain that Hannibal‘s Dr. Chilton is alive — and not just a figment of multiple imaginations?

2 | Did you get serious Alias vibes from True Detective‘s Ani in her party getup? And who shares TVLine reader Mike’s theory, that the kids who survived the jewel heist way back when somehow became Mayor Chessani’s son and daughter?

3 | Three seasons into Masters of Sex, and Bill is still fighting the fact that Virginia and Betty have better financial savvy than he does?

Humans4 | After Sunday’s Humans, would you tune in to a George/Niska spinoff? (And great news about Season 2, eh?)

5 | Is there a Last Ship drinking game to be played, for every time a character refers to his/her “whiskey”?

6 | On Falling Skies, did you, as we did, almost immediately guess that the crazy gunman’s family was already dead?

7 | Despite Caitlyn Jenner’s warmth and authenticity in the I Am Cait premiere, wasn’t it alarming that she wasn’t more bothered by daughter Kylie’s blasé remark about being “married” at 17 (just like her grandma), especially when you know she’s dating a 25-year-old rap star?

8 | Was it more awkward to watch Bachelorette “winner” Shawn discussing Kaitlyn’s hook-up with rival Nick with his prospective mother-in-law or to be Shawn discussing the matter with his prospective mother-in-law?

UnREAL9 | After this week’s UnREAL, will you never look at a Bachelor/ette horseback-riding sequence the same again? And in addition to Adam, can we get a guarantee that Faith will be back in some capacity next season? She’s a hoot! Also, did Jeremy’s ex-fiancée quit Everlasting? Because if not, weren’t he and Rachel kind of flaunting their rekindling on set?

10 | Did Major Crimes delight you with Taylor’s uneasy reaction to Sharon and Andy’s “dating” confession?

11 | Is it too dramatic to say that “Asaf over Burim” ranks as the So You Think You Can Dance judges’ most boneheaded decision in 12 seasons?

12 | As TVLine reader Scott points out, doesn’t Fuller House need just one of the Olsen Twins?

13 | If you were Scream‘s Emma, wouldn’t you be a little gun-shy about sleeping with someone again after that humiliating video leak?

14 | C’mon, now, is any General Hospital fan really — and already — clamoring for Tony Geary to return as Luke?

15 | Why doesn’t Suits‘ Jessica just fire Jack?

16 | Didn’t Mr. Robot’s Elliot and Vera loiter outside the prison fence for a way-too-long while, considering frantic guards were chasing down all the escapees? And how badly did [spoiler]’s death hit you?

17 | Between Zoo G-man Geoff Stults and Graceland’s Jake, was this The Week of Over-Dressed Men Riding in Swamp Boats?

Graceland18 | Should Graceland’s Charlie not have said even as little as she did about her Miami plans, right in front of Jonny’s houseguest? (That said, would you be more or less inclined to watch the show if it were about a group of roommates making porn?) Oh, and how about that “Alligator-Cam” action?

19 | Complications’ John sure cleaned up awfully well after being bloodied — as well as muddied — during that brutal beat-down from the Hispanic gang, right? Was he planning to hide his severely bruised rib cage from Sam come bedtime?

20 | Does Calista’s decision to hurl Joss under the bus on Mistresses mean there’s no way she can become part of the core group of ladies going forward? In fact, given her blatant disregard for Joss’ freedom and well-being, isn’t it starting to feel like Jennifer Esposito’s cray-cray designer is destined to be a one-season-and-done character?

21 | Really, cruise line commercial? “We Will Rock You” as a jingle? Rock you? Doesn’t your industry have enough unfortunate perceptions to overcome?

22 | Do you almost want to save Eureka alum Colin Ferguson from his dishwasher ad campaign more than Jennifer Garner and the credit cards?

    Can’t speak for all GH viewers, but I would love for Geary to return ASAP. He was the heart and soul of the show. Of course he’s missed.

    • graze says:

      No he is not! There are many reasons for this, but one is that you need to be gone in order to be missed. Enjoy Amsterdam a long time and stay far away from GH, Mr. Geary.

      He played a major role in keeping Genie France’s Laura away from GH, it’s time for Laura to shine on the show.

    • Dennis says:

      I think most GH fans hope that Geary stays far away from the show. And I’m one of them. The last years have done the Luke character no favors. Geary – without a doubt – is an amazing actor but also full of himself. He’s done more harm than good to his character and to the show.
      I hope the show sticks with Genie Francis and leaves Geary at the door if he ever wants to get his foot in again.

    #9-I kinda wanted Adam to choose faith because I thought her plan was good he doesn’t have to marry her and she can play along with the charade of a second season and new show
    #10-Taylor’s reaction was funny I’m glad it’s finally out in the open now I wonder how the rest of the squad will react
    #11-why did they keep him when burim did a better job with his dance plus burim has never disrespected any of the chreographers while Asaf has plenty of times twitch even said in the pre performance package to Asaf how he didn’t have to take him outside for the first time I hope Sonya comes in next week and Asaf gets a real lesson in what it’s like if the judges keep him around for another week I won’t be watching

    15 | Why doesn’t Suits‘ Jessica just fire Jack?
    .
    Amen brother…amen. I thought that EXACT same thing. It’s one thing when he is just being a jerk and all that, but on purpose (and admitting it) sabotaging negotiations and firm business? Lol wtf? He’s a Sr. Partner but still, right there are grounds to terminate him. He went WAY too far for it to be realistic that he wouldn’t just get fired.

    • Big Mike says:

      As a senior partner in a law firm, it’s just not that simple. He has equity tied up in the firm, plus you’ll need to provide concrete, LEGAL grounds for termination….basically they’d need evidence that he’d done something wrong. And with there being nothing more than a “he said, she said” game at this point, the burden of proof is on Jessica.

  4. Michael says:

    #11, Definitely! Even though they both struggle with choreography it always seems that Burim is far better during performances. Asaf has been the most annoying person on the show since Vegas week with a close second to Paula and Jason. Please bring back Mary and Misty for next season!

  5. Kate says:

    1. It crossed my mind now and again, but when he and Mason did their wound reveal, I decided, okay, that is it.

    2. I admire anyone who has paid enough attention that they remember that portion of the investigation.

    6. I did, I sometimes wonder in those situations that certain people in movies and tv seem to be able to identify a weapon by the sound, if there was any thought of lets just draw his fire and then gun the engines to get past.

    12. Probably and I know Mary Kate is the one who has done acting but its sort of awkward.

  6. Rook says:

    #20- I depends on how the story ends, I have been disappointed that Calista has barely interacted with Karen or April the whole season. Literally I think she had one scene with April and two with Karen.

  7. tallsy says:

    9. As long as they bring Adam back, I’ll be fine.
    18. I would love if they rebooted Graceland into a porn production show. They’d have to change the channel to pay cable.

  8. Bryce says:

    Alright, TV Line. I’ll look up the word blasé since you’re determined to use it in every article today :p

  9. Fido says:

    #6 and as a result all those scenes could be fast-forwarded over until the inevitable dead-bodies reveal without missing anything important. With this being the final few eps it is a wonder why they’d spend so much on what amounted to being a barrel load of nothing. And btw for a man in need of weapons he sure fired a great amount at the convoy – was it 3 or 4 missiles he shot at ’em ?

  10. Jared says:

    I’ve never watched The Bachlor or Bachlorette but UnReal is so good! Adam and faith NEED to be in S2!

  11. BG says:

    Maybe TVLINE could find out why ABC has shutdown all it’s show’s messageboards? They are not letting you post now. And the boards will be gone August 10. Are they trying to save money? Or will they come back with new messageboards? What happened? You seem to be a fan of GH, and I liked to post on that messageboard. Thanks.

  12. Amy says:

    Totally agree with #22. I cringe every time those commercials come on. It is so sad!

    #11 You are not being overly dramatic. The only reason I can see them keeping Asaf, is because the produces think he makes for better t.v. Its not the first time this has happened on a reality-competition show.

  13. Kim R says:

    10. Major Crimes – Taylor’s reaction was so enjoyable. :)
    15. Suits – I’m not sure about that but Jessica is annoying me this season. I hope they give her something more to do than act as a parent with some misbehaving boys.

  14. Steve F. says:

    Having watched Celebrity Wife Swap with my girlfriend (the things we do for love…), I have the following to ask:

    1 – Who’da thunk that Jason and Molly would be so much cooler than Sean and Catherine? (Given how Jason threw Melissa Wycroft under the bus on The Bachelor, I looked at him as a bit of a douche – and then I saw how much of a control freak Sean was.)

    2 – Who gives their spouse a to-do list while he gets to do whatever he likes, with his buddies? (And seriously, ironing their socks? Who does that these days?)

    3 – Is it just me, or was Catherine a bit immature? (Getting Jason to wax his chest made it feel like she was trying to turn him into Sean. And, “Wrath-erine?” Really?)

    • BrittBrat says:

      I agree with everything you said. I was wondering about the to-do list as well. It seems like he wants a maid and a dog sitter more than a wife. And that “Wrath-erine” thing was so unnecessary. I don’t know if she was joking or not, but it wasn’t that serious.

    6 | On Falling Skies, did you, as we did, almost immediately guess that the crazy gunman’s family was already dead?
    ~
    Well it was practically telegraphed. It’s not like they would be Skitters or anything, that wouldn’t have ended well for him.
    ~
    12 | As TVLine reader Scott points out, doesn’t Fuller House need just one of the Olsen Twins?
    ~
    All I’m saying is why are they acting like they’re about Full House? The show made them, and aside from Mary Kate’s stint on Weeds, what really have they done since? But yes, he’s right, they only need one of them
    ~
    22 | Do you almost want to save Eureka alum Colin Ferguson from his dishwasher ad campaign more than Jennifer Garner and the credit cards?
    ~
    Sweet merciful Flying Spaghetti Monster yes! Ever since I saw the first one I was like “He went from Eureka to that? That’s really all he can get? I mean I know the dude’s gotta pay the bills and all, but…Isn’t there something he could do on SOME other show? Maybe he could play James Madison on Sleepy Hollow or something I don’t know

    • Tom says:

      about in the Olsen twins comment should be above. Their sister Elizabeth is kind of more of a bigger name right now than they are

    • He has a role on Cedar Cove as the DA and the more I watched I realized he was the one in the MAYTAG commercial. Glad to see he is moving on. He is really very good.

  16. where are the devious maids and under the dome questions? #dissapointed

  17. CourtTV says:

    Colum Ferguson is a desperate working acting. Jennifer Garner is a famous actor making more money. I was thinking of him after recognizing Ed Quinn, also from Eureka, on Mistresses as Alec.

  18. KayCeeCee says:

    22. Colin Ferguson is now on Hallmark’s Original Series “Cedar Cove”

  19. meatwad says:

    16 Mr. Robot – I couldn’t believe how long they were standing outside of the prison like nothing was going on. And it hurt me that Shayla was dead. Loved her character and wanted to see how she could potentially break down some of Elliot’s walls

  20. S.M. Dixon says:

    Jack is a senior partner, so Jessica can’t just fire him. She has to have cause and evidence that she can take to the other partners, who then have to vote on his dismissal.

  21. 12. They do have a point, if they use all four Olsen Twins than that’ll mean there will be eight of them once Fuller House is over!

  22. fiberlicious says:

    Speaking of rescuing stars from commercials: It’s sapping my soul to see Crosby as a generic suburban housewif…er…husband freaking out over a juice stain. Please, some show – ANY SHOW – hire him!

  23. Walkie says:

    No Chilton is not dead. The reveal of his injury makes it clear that he’s alive.

  24. Jody Fleming says:

    21. I see the point about the perception issue… But the cruise line in question is highlighting the performance of “We Will Rock You” on their new ship.
