It’s no wonder we’ve lost sight of all we used to love about American Horror Story; the Robichaux witch coven, so prospective at its beginning, has now dwindled into something that makes these witches look like they deserve to be burned at the stake.

Realizing how quickly the excitement for season 3 shriveled away, I didn’t expect much from this finale, except maybe a few questions answered, some notable deaths, and an action-packed witch brawl. Let me warn you, however, to not expect much from this last episode.

As is customary at one point in every season, a musical-type scene introduces “The Seven Wonders” (Remember “The Name Game” from Asylum?), with none other than Stevie Nicks performing. The witches are all studying for their big test — when it comes to this “supreme” nonsense, you lose, you die.

At first it seems like it’ll be a good show, as the witches have to perform telekinesis, mind control, transmutation, and must even get to Hell and back. But it’s not as interesting as you might think.

During this tight race, we lose Misty Day, in the most unexceptional way. Unable to escape from her Hell, she vanishes into thin air. Poof! There goes one of the strongest characters AHS has seen. We also lose Zoe during a game of transmutation tag (though only for about twenty minutes, because the coven manages to bring her back to life), and Madison (death by Kyle; even though, you know, she’s a witch, and he’s, well, Kyle. But we’ll overlook this).

Zoe wakes up from a disappointing version of her Hell — Kyle broke up with her again and again on a loop.

This, along with a few other anti-climactic events, made this AHS finale forgettable.

40 minutes into this episode, I realize that all hope I had for a powerful finale is gone. Things are officially not going to pick up. Cordelia somehow regains her eyesight — finally we can look at her without cringing — and is revealed as the coven’s supreme. Who else would be more fit for this role? Her first task as supreme is to bend to Myrtle’s will and burn her at the stake, for the murder of a witch sister and colleague. A quite pathetic death, considering we’ve already seen it before. But this is what “The Seven Wonders” presents to us: everything we’ve already seen before. It’s why this finale is so anti-climactic.

Once Cordelia reveals her beloved witch coven, every young witch from across the country lines up at Robichaux’s gates for a taste of the awesome. And then Fiona shows up.

Cordelia is hardly surprised to see her there — and neither were we — but Fiona’s physical decay is something to gawk at. Though the cancer is in its last stages, Miss Fiona Goode sits cross-legged with her cigarette between her fingers. We learn that she’d made a deal with the axeman to fake her own death, just to get rid of him. This last dialogue between Fiona and her daughter is probably the only part worth watching from this finale (“You were the monster in every one of my closets”), and as Delia holds her mother while she takes her last breaths, all is forgiven. Fiona’s version of Hell is also pretty interesting: an eternity with the axeman in a house that smells like catfish.

But this still leaves us with some questions: if Fiona knew her daughter was the supreme all along, why did she kill Madison? Why didn’t she kill her daughter? It seems that several bloody messes this season could have been avoided.

Apart from truly pitiful ‘Hells’ (Is an eternal breakup really your worst nightmare, Zoe? We thought your character had more depth than that), AHS missed the opportunity for exceptional psychological horror. It’s reminiscent of season two, when we shoved leading characters into brick ovens for no reason. Some of our favorite characters this season — Myrtle, Misty, Nan — just simply disappeared with no justification.

There are rumors that next season features a circus; another great opportunity for producers to branch out and create something truly horror-worthy [Editor’s note: Ryan Murphy has denied this]. Though expectations are set high, we have to remember what happens with a good topic once we get into the plot. Not much, as we’ve learned from Coven and Asylum.

If you’re planning on watching this finale, skip to the end. Fiona Goode is the only one that has saved AHS from its complete collapse.

Score: 5/10

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

Are you excited to see more Tom Cavanagh on ‘The Flash’?

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
