What’s coming to The CW the week of October 26? A new Firestorm on THE FLASH, a party on CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND, regret on ARROW, cowgirls on iZOMBIE and a meta episode on SUPERNATURAL. Check out episode spoilers for the CW’s shows below.

CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND 1.03 “I Hope Josh Comes to My Party!” (October 26): In an attempt to get closer to Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III), Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) throws a housewarming party despite her lack of social connections in West Covina and a childhood fear of hosting parties. When Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin) finally convinces her, the party turns out to be nothing like they anticipated.

THE FLASH 2.04 “The Fury of Firestorm” (October 27): Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team look for another Firestorm match for Dr. Stein (Victor Garber). When the team meets Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (guest star Franz Drameh), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) has her reservations about whether Jax is the right match for Dr. Stein. Iris (Candice Patton) surprises Joe (Jesse L. Martin) while Barry and Patty (guest star Shantel VanSanten) grow closer.

iZOMBIE 2.04 “Even Cowgirls Get the Black and Blues” (October 27): While investigating a case, Liv (Rose McIver) eats the brains of a country-singing waitress. Detective Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) meets a female FBI agent who will be working out of their offices. Blaine (David Anders) tries to entice a former business associate to come back to the dark side. Meanwhile, Peyton’s (guest star Aly Michalka) return is messing up Ravi’s (Rahul Kohli) game, and Major (Robert Buckley) continues his downward spiral.

ARROW 4.04 “Beyond Redemption” (October 28): Laurel (Katie Cassidy) must deal with the repercussions of taking Sara (guest star Caity Lotz) to Nanda Parbat. Meanwhile, Oliver (Stephen Amell) asks Captain Lance (Paul Blackthorne) for a favor and while he’s not surprised at the response, he is surprised at what he finds out next.

SUPERNATURAL 11.04 “Baby” (October 28): Seen entirely from the point of view of the Impala, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) go on a road trip to fight monsters and demons.

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES 7.04 “I Carry Your Heart with Me” (October 29): Just as Damon (Ian Somerhalder) thinks he’s gained the upper hand in his fight against Lily (guest star Annie Wersching), an unexpected turn of events leaves him scrambling for a plan B. Elsewhere, when the fallout of Damon’s actions gains the unwanted attention of Mary Louise (guest star Teressa Liane) and Nora (guest star Scarlett Byrne), Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice King) are forced to spend the night distracting the girls at Whitmore College’s Heaven & Hell ball. Finally, after suspecting that she’s up to something, Enzo (Michael Malarkey) sets off on a mission to find out what Valerie (guest star Elizabeth Blackmore) is hiding, while a plan set by Alaric (Matt Davis) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) leaves their worlds turned upside down.

THE ORIGINALS 3.04 “A Walk on the Wild Side” (October 29): In order to uncover what his old acquaintance Tristan (guest star Oliver Auckland) is really up to in New Orleans, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) considers attending a gala thrown by a mysterious group of ancient vampires known as The Strix, while Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) invites herself to attend with him. There, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) is approached with an enticing offer made by a mysterious woman named Aya (guest star Tracy Ifeachor), but he quickly realizes that things are not always what they seem. Elsewhere, when a vital component of Lucien’s (guest star Andrew Lees) plan goes missing, he and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) form a tentative alliance in order to find it. Riley Voelkel also stars.

ARROW Preview: Anarky in Star City


Oliver had settled nicely into domestic life over the ARROW hiatus, even learning that he had quite the talent for cooking. But back in Star City (now renamed), everything was going to hell. Damien Darhk’s “ghosts” were terrorizing the city and, one night, they took out most of the city’s leadership. Desperate for help, Laurel and Thea sought out Oliver and asked him to come back home and don the Arrow hood once again. Oliver was afraid to do so, not eager to delve back into the dark life he had lived for so many years, but Felicity really wanted to get back to helping people.

Back in the city, Oliver had to deal with a Diggle that still clearly held a grudge as well as a rash of bombs set to blow up the city’s train station. He managed to foil the bombing, but met Damien in the process and discovered the man’s mysticism abilities (which included some form of telekinesis). And at the end of the episode we learned that Quentin was working under duress for Damien. In the final moments we got the biggest shock as Oliver stood in front of a fresh grave six months down the line, visited by Barry. Who had died? We don’t know that big spoiler yet.

In next week’s ARROW, an old friend of the Queen family announces that she’ll be running for mayor. Considering city leaders are being murdered by Damien, Thea and Oliver are concerned for their friend. But when she announces her candidacy they vow to protect her. Elsewhere in the episode, Felicity gets to work at Palmer Tech and Thea starts to feel the effects of the Lazarus Pit.

Don’t miss an all new episode of ARROW on October 14 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

SHERLOCK Victorian Special Episode Preview: The Ghosts of the Past


SHERLOCK fans have to wait an eternity for season 4 (and after that season 3 cliffhanger!), but a Victoria-era special will be airing at some point between now and the new season and the BBC has finally released a full length preview for it.

The point of the special episode was to take the original style of Arthur Conan Doyle’s books and transplant it onto the screen. “It’s SHERLOCK as you know it, but in the correct era,” EP Steven Moffat said at Comic-Con. He also said that the special is one of the best episodes they’ve ever made. And while Moffat has remained tight-lipped on how ghosts factor into the episode, he did say “it has to be a standalone special, we have to make it [stand] on its own.” At Comic-Con fans were also treated to a sneak peek of the episode, which we’ve also included below.

Unfortunately, the preview didn’t offer an air date for the SHERLOCK special, but once the date is known it will air on BBC One in the UK and PBS Masterpiece in North America.

Funny Business: George Dalton Talks WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER: FIRST DAY OF CAMP

George Dalton

George Dalton appears as the talented young camp DJ on Netflix’s original series, WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER: FIRST DAY OF CAMP. I caught up with the talented young actor about his work on WET HOT, what it was like working with such a great cast, and what he’s loving on TV right now.

What was your favorite part of working on WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER?
George Dalton: Everything! From the set and location to the director and cast, it was an amazing experience!

You’ve been acting since you were little. Do you think it’s something you’ll want to pursue for a long time?
Most definitely! There are so many things I love to do both in front and behind the camera…from directing and writing to acting. So, I see myself having a very long career in the industry.

For people who are unfamiliar with the show, what can you tell us about your character, Arty?
Arty is the camp radio DJ, a carefree kind of guy who spends most of his time at camp in the radio cabin spinning tunes.

How was it getting to work with all of the incredible comedians in the cast? What were some of the things you learned from working with them?
Amazing! They really taught me to just relax and have fun!

Do you think there will be a WET HOT season 2? If so, would you want to do it?
No one knows yet, but it would definitely be amazing to play Arty again!

What are some of your favorite shows on TV right now?
I’m slightly obsessed with AMERICAN HORROR STORY and I’m counting down the days until the new season!

THE ORIGINALS Preview: Meet Jason Dohring’s Detective Will Kinney

the originals

Jason Dohring is coming to THE ORIGINALS this season! We’ve already seen photos for him in the second episode, but now the network has released a preview featuring Dohring’s Detective Kinney.

This homicide detective will be meeting Cami and Vincent as he investigates a gruesome murder in the French Quarter and apparently Cami has been called in to help build a profile of the killer (because, you know, part-time shrinks/bartenders do that kind of thing for police departments). Dohring will be recurring in season 3 and is enjoying playing the “straight man” in THE ORIGINALS.

THE ORIGINALS returns for its third season on October 8 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. Check out a sneak peek from the premiere featuring the Mikaelson brothers here.

REIGN Photos: A Familiar Face Returns to Court


We know that Catherine will have been captured and imprisoned by her son in episode 3.02 of REIGN (see photos), but by the time episode 3.03 rolls around, Catherine looks to have traded her dungeon cell for her fine clothes once again.

In “Extreme Measures”, King Antoine (Conde’s brother) returns to Court, leaving Mary to help Francis hide his weakening condition so that he can secure his family’s fortune. But the Throne is in jeopardy and time is running out, leaving the royal couple to turn to an unlikely ally who is seeking redemption.

Browse through photos below for the October 23 episode of REIGN airing at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

FINDING CARTER Preview: What’s Coming Up in Season 2B?

Finding Carter

FINDING CARTER is airings its season 2B premiere tonight and MTV has released an extended trailer hinting at what’s to come in the episodes ahead.

We already know that Lori will be found innocent and will be moving to the Wilsons’ town while taking care of Ben. Carter will be eager to get to know her brother, but it’s obvious that he has had a sketchy past and can’t be trusted. The video below also reveals a few more teasers:

-Carter is feeling unsettled in her current life, so she eventually quits school and becomes a bartender, which does not get Elizabeth’s approval and could threaten drive Carter out of the Wilson house

-Crash asks Carter to move with him to California

-Elizabeth is clearly worried about the effect Lori will have on their lives with her living close by and is concerned about David’s connection to her via Ben in particular

-Gabe is working through his grief over losing his father and making bad choices, but will Taylor be dragged down with him?

FINDING CARTER airs Thursdays at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
