Last night Scandal fans saw one of Poppa Pope's assassins stab Jake Ballard in the gut a handful of times and leave him bleeding out on the floor of Olivia's empty office.

We need to create a society where girls and women are getting the same encouragement and support to build their careers as the boys and men are. From the start. That's just my #78cents.
Gratitude doesn't sap strength -- it makes a boss more powerful.
With access to more viewers than any press conference, Stewart has pushed his interview subjects -- then and now -- to not just bring their A game, but their A+ game. He does his homework, asks hard questions and often has a trick up his sleeve
In a sense, the title of the latest episode of Mad Men, "New Business," is a misnomer. For most of it concerns old business. Yet dispensing with old business as good a way as any to get on with the new, and this episode clears the decks of much that remains from the past.
"Game of Thrones" mirrors my own life in so many ways. I go to my bootcamp class ("Game of Moans"), then hit Starbucks ("Game of Scones") and make a quick stop at the bank ("Game of Loans"). I

The eminently photogenic ladies of Game of Thrones are rocking magazine covers everywhere. The guys may seem a little lost in their dust, but they're doing their best to contribute to the massive publicity campaign that GoT engenders, too.
Forget Martha, it's all Paige now. All of that tension between Philip and Elizabeth was worthless, because Pastor Tim and Paige figured out something was wrong all by themselves. A few things about the writing that blew my mind.
In an age when a coinage such as "frenemies" has meaning, the operative word in the title of a new documentary, Best of Enemies, is the word "best." The film is about a particular historic event of verbal jousting between two very well-matched public intellectuals, the "best" practitioners of the English language of their time.
The song of this episode, interwoven with skill and foreshadowing, is Peggy Lee's haunting, "Is That All There Is?" The underlying theme echoed is the necessity of endings -- of 'letting go,' of severance, in all lives lived well.
The final episode focuses on Mary Magdalene. According to the Gospels, she was a faithful follower of Jesus, but might she have been more than that -- perhaps even a lover, or Jesus' wife? Inquiring minds want to know.
