Game of Thrones season 4, episode 1 finally airs tonight! Here is everything you need to know about the season premiere, titled “Two Swords.”

Update: Read our recap of tonight’s episode now!

HBO’s epic fantasy drama at last returns tonight – and things are only going to get more epic. Game of Thrones season 4, episode 1, titled “Two Swords,” will plunge viewers back into the intrigue and excitement that we have learned to expect from the wild world of Westeros.

What happened last season on ‘Game of Thrones’?

Quite a lot.

Tyrion Lannister struggled to re-assert himself in the King’s Landing political scene while his father Tywin took over as Hand of the King. With Joffery ready to marry Margaery Tyrell, Tywin forced Tyrion to marry Sansa Stark, and betrothed Cersei to Loras Tyrell to solidify the Lannister-Tyrell alliance.

Almost nobody was happy about these arrangements.

Also unhappy was Jaime Lannister, who had his right hand cut off while being returned to King’s Landing by Brienne of Tarth. (He did become slightly less of an asshole, though.) Also in the Riverlands, Arya Stark was taken hostage by Beric Dondarrion’s Brotherhood Without Banners, but was soon kidnapped by Sandor Clegane.

Up in the North, Jon Snow infiltrated the wildlings and got jiggy with Ygritte, but then betrayed them to return to the Night’s Watch. Unfortunately, the Watch is in a bad state, as Lord Commander Mormont was murdered by his own men in Craster’s Keep. Luckily, Samwell Tarly managed to escape with his wildling not-girlfriend Gilly, and her infant son. Sam also figured out how to kill White Walkers with dragonglass blades.

At the same time, Theon Greyjoy was tortured to insanity by Ramsay Snow, the bastard son of Roose Bolton. He is forced to call himself “Reek” because Ramsay is a freaking psychopath.

Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen met up with Ser Barristan Selmy and a flirty sellsword named Daario Noharis. She stole an army of Unsullied slave soldiers from the city of Astapor, and then beat the crap out of Yunkai. Now she is headed toward Meereen, watching her three dragons grow more fearsome by the day.

Also, Robb Stark, his wife Talisa, Catelyn Stark, and pretty much the entire Stark-Tully host were all slaughtered by the Frey family at literally the worst wedding ever.

What’s happening tonight?

The official synopsis for Game of Thrones season 4, episode 1 says:

Tyrion welcomes a guest to King’s Landing. At Castle Black, Jon Snow finds himself unwelcome. Dany is pointed to Meereen, the mother of all slave cities. Arya runs into an old friend.

And a new preview for “Two Swords” makes it clear that the action kicks off right from the start.

Still images also give us a hint at the main players in tonight’s episode.

What are your predictions for the new season of ‘Game of Thrones’?

Uh oh — fans of Nick and Jess aren’t going to like this news! Megan Fox is returning to New Girl in season 6 for a major arc.

Last season, Megan Fox stepped in to fill in Jess’ place while Zooey Deschanel was on maternity leave. During that time, Fox’s character Regan grew quite close to Nick! They even ended up going to Cece and Schmidt’s wedding together and made plans for the summer. With awful timing too, since it seemed like Jess was just about ready to admit her feelings for Nick.

Now TV Line is reporting that Fox will be returning for a huge story arc in New Girl season 6. It’s believed that Nick will return home from his summer with Regan alone, but she will appear around the middle of the season. The timing of her appearance is due to Fox’s own pregnancy with her third child.

If we had to guess, we’d say that the writers will definitely be throwing some angst into the script. It always seems like either Jess or Nick is pining for the other while they’re in a relationship. Will Jess try to get over her feelings for Nick with someone else? Or will she just try to show him why they should be together? Fans will have to wait and see when the show returns!

New Girl season 6 returns to Fox on September 20 at 8:30 p.m. ET!

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Tyler Hoechlin as Superman! We have our first look at the Man of Steel on Supergirl.

Supergirl has released its first look at Teen Wolf alum Tyler Hoechlin as the Man of Steel. Hoechlin will appear in the first two episodes of Supergirl season 2, and he and Kara won’t be completely on the same page.

“Clark has a very different experience of what it means to have super powers on earth,” EP Sarah Schechter said at SDCC. “There’s some head-butting and philosophical approaches that are different. We’ll get into that.”

Check out the shot of the super-cousins below. The Superman suit was designed by Kiersten Ronning, the Supergirl costume designer.

Supergirl season 2 Superman

Clark Kent/Superman appeared in a mostly off-screen capacity in season 1 as Supergirl sought to keep the focus on Kara and establish her as the hero of her own story. With Kara’s story now established and the audience invested in her as a person, the show will be bringing in her famous cousin.

“In season 1, the show is about Kara and the show is about Supergirl. It would confuse matters to have Superman there,” Schechter explained. “This show is about family, the family you make as an adult and the family you came from. It makes sense for Kara to reconnect with him now.”

Hoechlin previously said of his approach to Clark/Superman:

“I don’t think that I’m going to try to take any inspiration from previous ones. For me it’s more about finding who he is in this story that we’re telling, and pulling that from the tradition of Superman as a whole, so I really want to be able to get through as many of the comics and things that I haven’t seen and really pull from things like that, and then within the story that we’re telling, find how that best serves that story.”

Supergirl season 2 premieres Monday, October 10 at 8:00 p.m. ET on The CW.

What do you think of Superman’s look for ‘Supergirl’?

Intellectual property law may prevent Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report from appearing on The Late Show, but it cannot stop his identical twin cousin.

Last week, Stephen Colbert brought a familiar face to visit The Late Show. Tucked away in the woods living happily ever after with Jon Stewart was Colbert’s character, host of The Colbert Report, champion of America, Her Excellency The Rev. Sir Doctor Stephen Tyrone Mos Def Colbert, D.F.A., Heavyweight Champion of the World** featuring Flo Rida La Premiere Dame De France. Or Stephen Colbert for short.

Colbert resisted bringing the character to The Late Show, choosing to introduce the world to the real Stephen Colbert. But the Republican National Convention selecting Donald Trump as their candidate for President demanded that Colbert dust off his Captain America shield and return to glory for one night only. And one night only is all we are going to see of that man.

Colbert late show colbert returns

Colbert announced on The Late Show that immediately after the live show on July 18, 2016, Viacom’s lawyers called up CBS and said that “the character Stephen Colbert is their intellectual property.” And so, Stephen Colbert revealed that Stephen Colbert, host of The Colbert Report would never be seen again.

Luckily, Stephen Colbert had an identical twin cousin! How might that work, you ask? Well Colbert’s mother was an identical twin and she and her sister married identical twins and gave birth at the same time and both named their sons Stephen Colbert. Rest assured attorneys, the two men are very different people. The banned Colbert went to Dartmouth, the cousin Colbert only applied there. The banned Colbert wears smart fitting suits, the cousin Colbert prefers a breezy American flag button down. Night and day those two.

Colbert late show werd

Real Stephen Colbert (are you confused yet?) asked cousin Colbert if he’d be willing to make himself available for future appearances on The Late Show, a task cousin Colbert was more than willing to take on. Loopholes!

Another intellectual property to fall to the wayside was “The Word,” a segment Colbert revived from The Colbert Report to introduce the word, “Trumpiness.” There’s a way around this one too. Introducing, “The Werd.”

Watch all of the Stephen Colberts in action and get the lowdown on “The Lesser of Two Evils” in the full segment from July 27.

The Late Show continues its live coverage of the Democratic National Convention tonight at whatever time Hillary Clinton is done speaking on CBS.
