There’s a certain point in every season of The Bachelorette, where everyone involved begins to go completely insane. Maybe it’s the lack of access to cell phones and the internet, or being cut off from loved ones or normal day-to-day life. Maybe prolonged exposure to the air in extremely luxurious hotels causes acute brain death. But every year it happens; guys just start to snap. On this season, that breaking point came in episode 6. Multiple dudes lost their minds simultaneously on national television. The whole episode was this GIF of Mr. Spock looking really uncomfortable for two hours.

Game of Thrones Season 5 has come to the close of its most brutal season yet, dispensing precious little “Mother’s Mercy” on any of its core characters. Major, major characters suffered the pointy end of a blade, while others met surprise ends, stripped away their sins, or made a surprise return. Find out every character’s fate by our full review!

The penultimate episode of Orphan Black’s third season is a good and bloody one, primarily focusing on mothers and intimate relationships as S., Sarah and Felix head back home to London to pursue the Castor original. What they find offers yet another shocking twist, even if we’ve grown accustomed to the prevalence of twists that end pretty much every episode.

Tonight’s episode of Hannibal is, essentially, a short film, one that functions as a gorgeous, somber mood piece — or a tone poem, as would be more to Hannibal Lecter’s high brow liking. Will Graham has emerged from the gruesome events of the Season 2 finale, alive but not unscathed, with myriad existential and logical questions that have but only one answer: Hannibal.

'Orange is the New Black' Season 3 cuts the outside clutter for a sharply-focused run both sadder and more hilarious than ever. Our early spoiler-free review, before all episodes premiere on Netflix June 12!

Last week's Game of Thrones unleashed plenty of frozen horrors at "Hardhome," but the pendulum swung from ice to fire for "The Dance of Dragons." Not only did fire reign at Daenerys' predictably disastrous and tournament, but so too did flames bring us the series most gruesome, difficult scene to date. Our full review!

‘Orphan Black’ Introduces Another New Clone in ‘Ruthless in Purpose, and Insidious in Method’

This week, Orphan Black finally reintegrates Alison and Donny’s sitcom with the rest of the plot — sure, that doesn’t seem like major news in the face of Crystal, the latest Leda clone, or that oh-my-god-are-you-serious Ocean’s 11 ending, but it is kind of a big deal. So far this season, Alison and Donny have remained on a suburban island, and if not for the two of them giving us pretty much the best, most insane Orphan Black scene of all time, I’d want to vote them off.

The most gorgeous, cinematic show on television is back — Hannibal’s Season 3 premiere is rife with sickeningly stunning shots and dripping with dread. “Antipasto” takes us on a trip to Italy to spend the entire hour with Hannibal and Bedelia, as the former dispenses with his “person suit” to give us a far more intimate — but no less formal — experience.

‘Community’ Season 6's Finale Was Bittersweet and Beautiful, But Do We Want Season 7?

That old familiar standby of Community signing off has again arrived, perhaps a bit more under the radar than in previous years, but nonetheless completing the first half of its #SixSeasonsandaMovie pledge. Meta as ever, “Emotional Consequences of Broadcast Television” said a heartfelt goodbye to Season 6 as it envisioned a potential Season 7, but would fans (or Dan Harmon) even want it?
