  25. Dee says:

    The Good Wife & Once Upon a Time. Won’t miss The Good Wife no matter what time it starts!

  26. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Woah, that sweetheart of a prospector Ellsworth is going to play Hannah’s dad on Dexter? I can’t picture that. I still get mad when I think how Hearst had him murdered. Ellsworth had to be the most likeable character in television history.
    Crap, so I guess Brody really is going to kill Walden? I wondered about that after seeing the preview. I still hold onto hope it’s a dream he’s having. I am getting nervous about where the season ends up with Brody though. I was just at a friend’s house tonight reading the issue of EW that interviews the Homeland writers from a couple of months back, and some of the implications the writers were making scared me to death. I am terrified of the different scenarios this season could end with, especially after last week’s episode, because many things that were occurring in that ep didn’t feel right. Something is incredibly off and I feel on edge from it. And with a title like Broken Hearts…I have a feeling my heart is going to be broken tonight.
    Super pumped for tonight’s gang war on Boardwalk Empire. I’m going to miss Gyp’s craziness and unpredictability terribly, because I know there’s no way Nucky lets him live.
