The "True Detective" finale left us with one dangling question: Were we watching a buddy cop comedy all along and we didn't even know it? The HBO crime drama series starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson has been lauded as genius, epic, nothing short of perfect, so there was a lot riding on its big Season 1 finale. Did it deliver? After HBO Go stopped crashing, that is? Let's break it down. Huge spoiler alert, obviously. Don't read more unless you've seen the "True Detective" Season 1 finale.
With scarface/green spaghetti monster/lawnmower man holding his dead father hostage, with Ziploc bags of clear liquid hanging from the ceiling of his little torture shack, the finale kicked off with a feeling of impending, creeptastic doom.

SPOILER ALERT: The recap for the "Alone" episode of "The Walking Dead" contains storyline and character spoilers.
That didn’t take long: Beth made that comment last week about how Daryl would miss her when she’s gone, and thanks to a honey trap of a house, now she is.
Things worked out better for Sasha, Maggie, and Bob, as Sasha realized the only thing worse than trying to survive the zombie apocalypse is trying to do it alone, a realization she came to before she and her group were permanently disbanded (or dismembered).
The Bob Backstory
Bob was traveling alone, dejected, fashioning makeshift homes for himself, downing bottles of cough syrup, and staring at walkers as they tried furiously to get at him. He didn’t seem especially afraid of walkers, and didn’t seem to especially care if he continued to evade them or not.

This week on "Girls," Hannah's feeling a bit neglected since Adam took his new gig on Broadway and tries to spice things up with some public role play, a blonde wig, and a mommy complex.
After luring her beau to a bar, making a scene about her fake family and husband, Gerdaniel, and donning some insanely complicated lingerie, things end up in more of a mess than before.
While all of this is already bonkers, nothing is more surprising than when Adam admits to liking their relationship's normalized stability. Maybe Adam really has settled down and gotten his act together, but will Hannah be OK dating someone who doesn't crave her outrageous antics?
Adam plans to move in with Ray for a while, and here's hoping these two eccentric lovebirds reconcile before their separate careers draw them further apart. One thing's for certain: Hannah actually looks really great in a blond wig.
"Girls" airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on HBO.

It's a whole new old world on "Once Upon a Time"!
When the ABC fantasy series returns this week from its winter hiatus, Storybrooke as we knew it is gone. All the characters are back in Fairy Tale Land, except for Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Henry (Jared S. Gilmore). They're living in New York — with no memories of Snow White, Prince Charming, or Henry's adopted mom, the Evil Queen.
"We go back to a very different Fairy Tale Land," Lana Parrilla told Yahoo TV in a phone interview.
We chatted with the "Once Upon a Time" star about the big change, the arrival of the Wicked Witch, and whether Regina will experience true love's kiss this season.

"Saturday Night Live"got the "Girls" treatment this week.
Former cast member Fred Armisen and two perfectly executed guest cameos from Liam Neeson and Jon Hamm turned a passable guest host turn from "Girls" creator Lena Dunham into an excellent one.
Neeson appeared in the cold open, threatening Russian President Vladimir Putin with his familiar "I have a particular set of skills" line from "Taken." In an ordinary "SNL" sketch, that would have been the entire joke, but the scene went on as he continued to speak to Putin "in a language you can understand."
What followed was a '80s-style action star montage featuring Jay Pharoah's President Obama shirtless on a horse, karate chopping a guy in a gi, and wrestling a bear. It was a pitch-perfect sketch that was both silly and sharply satirical.

¡Dios mío! Things are really heating up on "Escándalo," Jimmy Kimmel's telenovela version of ABC's juicy drama, "Scandal." There's brawling, there's death, there's cereal consumption!
The hilarious spoof debuted last week and quickly became so beloved, it was picked up to series. In the second episode, the action escalates when Fitz/Antonio (Tony Goldwyn) tries to murder Presidente Guillermo in his hospital bed! But Guillermo isn't going to take an assassination attempt without a fight!
Watch the five funniest moments from "Escándalo" Episode 2:
Fitz/Antonio is not... (gasp)... a nurse!
David Rosen/random hospital patient likes to slurp his cereal.
El Presidente can have Olivia's heart, but not this body part (totally SFW).
The drama is getting so intense, Jake needs to to bite someone else's fist!
Warning: Nobody — nobody — goes in Cyrus's pool.

While fans of HBO's "True Detective" have spent the last seven weeks coming up with elaborate whodunnit theories for the show's central crimes (we're guilty of obsessing a bit, too... like, a lot) and trying to imagine who the Yellow King might be, we forgot about another TV yellow king we adore.
But Homer Simpson is in on the joke. Is Matt Groening as into HBO's crime drama as we are? Sure looks like it:
The antlers, the thorny crown, the swirly tattoo... it's all spot-on. Now if only they'd made some little men out of Homer's empty Duff beer cans, the scene would be complete.
"True Detective" Season 1 finale airs Sun., March 9 at 9 p.m. on HBO; "The Simpsons" returns with two new episodes Sun., March 9 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
Vera Farmiga on Portraying Norma Bates: 'I Don't Want to Present a Story That Is Just a Dark Dead End'Yahoo TV2 days ago
Star Vera Farmiga, who earned a lead-actress Emmy nomination for Season 1, says trying to make viewers forget about the movie, and to see Norma as a more fully realized character than she was in the film, continues to be a challenge for the new season.
"For me to get sympathy for Norma is, sometimes with some viewers, a task of herculean proportions," she says. "They come with such reticence and such presuppositions stemming from the original 'Psycho.' That visual of her, just a bag of bones in the basement, just automatically engenders this feeling that she was a bad mother. That she was a wicked, wicked mother of supervillain proportions."

Rose McIver is sprinkling her pixie dust all over Hollywood these days.
After a winter break, Sunday marks the return of ABC's "Once Upon a Time," on which the New Zealand native charms as Tinker Bell, the feistiest fairy in the Enchanted Forest. The iconic character is a contrast from McIver's role on "Masters of Sex." On the Showtime series set in the 1950s, she plays Vivian Scully, the daughter of the university's provost (played by Beau Bridges) and an impeccably dressed and tressed candy striper who seems hell-bent on landing a doctor husband.
Further, the 26-year-old is currently shooting "Petals on the Wind," Lifetime's upcoming TV movie sequel to its hit adaptation of V.C. Andrews's "Flowers in the Attic." She's playing the starring role of Cathy, taking over for "Mad Men's" Kiernan Shipka, who played the younger version of the character in the first film. "Petals" picks up 10 years after the first film.

Just a week after the Bluegrass State duo were "philiminated" thanks to lost luggage and subsequent bickering, another "Amazing Race" all-star team might meet its Season 24 demise thanks to an avoidable misstep.
This time it is Dave and Connor O'Leary who find themselves up sh-- creek without a paddle, figuratively and almost literally. What can be deduced from this exclusive clip from Sunday's new episode is that the parent-child pair is floating down a river in Borneo on a raft of questionable sturdiness with a friendly Travelocity yard gnome looking for the sixth bridge and a food drop-off.
"The O'Leary boys become the wild men of Borneo river running. What a rush, what an experience," Dave gushed in an email statement to Yahoo TV. "Who wouldn't want to add that to their bucket list?"
