The fourth season of Game of Thrones marked a unique turning point, in that Isaac Hempstead-Wright’s Bran became one of the first major characters to run out of written story from George R.R. Martin. It wasn’t altogether surprising to have the character sit out Season 5, but it seems Bran will be back and Greenseeing for good in Season 6.

If there’s one thing any TV network worth their salt would realize, it’s not to let go of talent like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, no matter the project. Hence, despite moderate reviews, Johnson will officially return to the Stephen Levinson-adapted Ballers for Season 2 in 2016.

‘True Detective’ Digs a Bit Deeper in ‘Maybe Tomorrow’

Here’s the thing: comparisons between Season 1 and Season 2 of True Detective are inevitable. The first season of Nic Pizzolatto’s HBO detective drama was a near-perfect character piece in which the cultish serial killer mystery was an added bonus.

Comparing the technical aspects and general quality of Season 2 to Season 1 is fair, but there’s been a lot of complaining that the second season is downright bad (it’s not). The problem is that everyone loved that first season so much that they just instinctively want more of the same.

There’s absolutely no way you could avoid spoilers about the ending of “Night Finds You,” but if you’ve made it this far, I trust you’ve already seen the episode, which makes this a safe space to discuss what the hell just happened.
