Confrontations abound during this Labor Day hour. There was no lovemaking, but there was broken glass, secrets revealed, demands made, and betrayals to be had. Front and center is Elena, whose plan comes to fruition, but to what expense?

Last week, Elena found the letter that revealed J.R.’s master plan and Bobby’s role in Cliff’s incarceration. And now all southern hell is about to break loose!

Falling Skies
Space Oddity & Shoot the Moon

Original Air Date: Aug 31, 2014

Falling Skies didn’t end the season with any big revelation or resolution. Instead, over the course of the two-hour season finale, there were victories, defeats and some bizarre twists.

The episode begins with everyone reacting to the return of Lexi, who we know just killed the overlord she called “father.” She apologizes to everyone, but no one is buying, often mentioning how she killed Lourdes. Even Tom and Anne cannot forgive her. When mommy and daddy wash their hands of you, that’s as bad as it gets.

Previously On: Catching Up With Some TV Favorites

TWO CENTS FALL BANN1ER NEW1Fall TV is just around the corner!

Worried that you won’t be able to catch up on a favorite show before its fall premiere? We’ve got you covered! Check out our handy dandy reference guide and find out where we last left off with some of your favorites! As an added bonus, all of the shows listed here will be covered each week so be sure to stop back and let’s talk TV!

ARROW

Picture 1 of 13

Major Characters:
• Oliver Queen - Maybe former CEO of Queen Consolidated by day, definitely hooded vigilante by night
• John Diggle - Inaugural member of Team Arrow, former soldier, future father (yay!)
• Felicity Smoak - Former IT genius at Queen Consolidated, current IT genius for Team Arrow, heart of the team
• Roy Harper - Newest member of Team Arrow, stubborn ex-boyfriend of Thea Queen, vigilante-in-training
• Laurel Lance - Oldest Lance sister, Now in on the Arrow secret, tenacious lawyer
• Quentin Lance (Has been up and down (and up) the ranks of the Starling City PD, initially out to get “the hood” but slowly morphing into a working relationship, father to Laurel and Sara
• Thea Queen - youngest Queen...technically, stubborn and we’re about to see her dark side
• Malcolm Merlyn - Horrible father, AKA the Dark Archer, Thea’s real father...lucky her
• Sara Lance - Youngest Lance sister, the first Canary, badass assassin with good intentions, Team Arrow

Cliffhanger?
No real cliffhanger this season. More of a lingering question for the audience (or at least us) about whether Oliver really meant what he told her in the mansion...you know, the whole “I love you” thing? Although, if Comic-Con interviews and that promo (link to post) are anything to go by, it’s more of a question of how that development will be navigated. And of course, there’s the whole what will Thea and Malcolm be up to when the season premieres.

Prediction:
With what we know about the new season thanks to all the bits and (huge) pieces of information we’ve gotten over the last few weeks, I'm going to venture a guess on things that haven't been covered as much. My prediction is that Ra’s will be after Malcolm for escaping Nanda Parbat but will inevitably tie back to Nyssa and Sara’s re-appearance and The Count 2.0 will be much worse than the first Count (Seth Gabel).

Along with the appearance of Elsa, we’ll also be seeing Kristoff, Anna, and others including a mysterious role filled by Elizabeth Mitchell this season.

Chelsea Handler's late night show came to an end, but not without some jabs at the comedian, including a rather hilarious intervention. But not just any intervention, this one involved three of Chelsea's best gal pals, Mary McCormack, Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock. What ensued was just amazing. See for yourself.
