If there’s one thing we’ve learned to recognize after four years of blogging, it’s a good idea when we see one. Thus, in response to Entertainment Weekly’s Season finale awards celebrating the good (and well, not-so-good) we present our take. Feel free to share yours in the comments below.
Best Death: From THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, Uncle John, in the kitchen, with a butcher knife. Ouch!
Most Welcome Exit for an Unloved Character: That noise you just heard, the collective cheer of GOSSIP GIRL fans around the world upong spotting Jenny taking a bus out of town.
Best Overall Ending to an Otherwise Crappy Season: Despite still not having had the chance to see it — it’s hard to ignore the buzz surrounding the GREY’S ANATOMY two-part shocker. Also hard to ignore, the stock price of “Kleenex,” which has gone through the roof. Seriously. Just how many lives hang in the balance?!
Worst Overall Ending to an Otherwise Solid Season: BONES. Don’t believe us, go ahead and look up the term “cruel and unusual punishment” in the dictionary, we have a feeling you’ll see Hart Hanson laughing maniacally.

If there’s one thing we love about cliffhangers, it’s that they allow all of us to spend the summer pondering what will happen next. In this recurring feature, we’re going to let you step into the shoes of those who pen your favorite shows to tell your version of the story! First up? THE VAMPIRE DIARIES!
Where Things Left Off: News of Anna’s death prompted Jeremy to down a vial of her blood and a handful of cocktails, it became clear that Tyler and his dad aren’t exactly normal, Bonnie made it clear she’s a literal force to be reckoned with, and Elena’s much-discussed doppelganger not only put in an appearance but took her look-alike’s place!
If mysterious newcomers are stirring up trouble in Llanview, bombs are literally going off in Port Charles and weddings are being planned in Pine Valley, it must mean that our friends at Soaps In Depth are dishing about summer preview. So what’s ahead for ALL MY CHILDREN, ONE LIFE TO LIVE and GENERAL HOSPITAL? Read on and find out!
“Despite having shot one son, seen another sent to prison and having a daughter with some major issues because of his parenting, Sonny hasn’t learned a damn thing,” says the magazine’s executive editor, Richard M. Simms, of GH’s tempermental mob boss. “This June, his actions could wind up putting still more innocent lives on the line.” And what about that whacked-out artist, Franco — played by big-screener James Franco — who’ll be hitting town this summer? “Events that begin to unfold this week at the prison where Michael and Jason are staying will be key to Franco’s return. There’s going to be an unexpected turn of events at the prison that will set the stage for Franco’s return.”
Despite Ethan’s (Tyron Leitso) conspicuous absence from the press release touting BEING ERICA’s third season, fans worried Erica may have too hastily let go of her one time best friend and boyfriend will be happy to learn that although gone, Erica’s ex is far from forgotten. Rest assured, the fallout from the couple’s emotional breakup last season will reverberate throughout the season. Teased star Erin Karpluk at yesterday’s CBC (Canada’s Broadcasting Corporation) Fall UpFront, “We do an entire episode about Ethan [who may-or-may-not be back in person], so it’s not like he’s gone from the show.”
