I’m not ready for Thursday. As has been all too common lately, I’m still reeling from the latest episode of The 100. Last night was the Season 2 finale, and it was brutal, sad, and beautiful all at the same time. I may have reached capacity on how many emotions I can experience at once. I can process feelings and talk TV news at the same time though, so let’s get to it. Today’s round-up includes a look at Arya Stark’s new costume, a villainous promo for next week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Daredevil casting announcements, and more.
Changing Faces. Entertainment Weekly’s newest issue is focused on Game of Thrones and besides going into details about what’s ahead in Season 5, the covers feature new character images. Four covers highlight Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, and Arya Stark. And yes, Arya Stark has a new look. Maisie Williams must be excited to see a different costume! See the collectible covers here at Nerdist.
Finale Dates. Pull up your calendar for May because The CW has announced season finale dates for a handful of shows (don’t worry–they’ve all been renewed for next season). Here are the ones you’re probably most concerned about: Arrow–May 13, The Flash–May 19, Supernatural–May 20, and The Vampire Diaries–May 14. Get the rest of the list at TVLine.
Bad Guys Galore. Matt Murdock, I’m sorry to break it to you, but the odds are already stacked against you. Marvel’s Daredevil has announced six supporting cast members, and they’re all villains. Here are the additions: Rob Morgan (Turk Barrett), Matt Gerald (Melvin Potter), Peter Shinkoda (Nobu), Wai Ching Ho (Madame Gaeo), Nikolai Nikolaeff (Vladimir), and Gideon Emery (Anatoly). Whew.

Going Undercover. The next episode of Once Upon a Time will see Regina pretending to go evil in order to get in with the Queens of Darkness. And we’re left to worry about whether she’ll be tempted to go to the dark side again. Rude! But hey, according to a photo from the episode, we’ll get an adorable moment between Hook and Will Scarlett. I’ll take it. View the rest of the “Enter the Dragon” photo gallery at TV Fanatic.
Cookies > Zombies. Rick Grimes and company are settling into Alexandria on The Walking Dead. Sort of. The safe zone seems to have its secrets. Regardless of whether it’s the real deal, there are supplies and Carol’s using them. AMC shared the recipe for Carol’s cookies, but please do not make them and then threaten small children. Or any children. [Nerdist]
Agent of Evil. What would a Robert Rodriguez production be without Danny Trejo? Actually, what is any production like without the actor? He’ll be joining the second season of From Dusk To Dawn: The Series. The El Rey Network original show is currently in production in Austin, and Trejo is on board as The Regulator. According to Deadline, he’s “a horrifying agent of evil who has been summoned to perform a deadly errand.” In other words, you don’t want to mess with him. [Deadline]
Super Villain Team-Up. The promo for next week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. paints a crazy-looking picture. And not just because Calvin Zabo (Kyle MacLachlan) is being his usual wacky self. He returns with friends from the wrong side of the tracks. Yes, a gathering of super villains is ahead. [CBR]
Empire Goes Dynasty. Vulture took it upon themselves to create a beautiful thing. They worked with video editor Louis Plamondon to put together a proper opening credit sequence for Fox’s Empire, and it’s inspired by Dynasty. Is it perfect? Y/Y? [Vulture]
Do you think Regina will be tempted by going evil again? Let me know in the comments.
