Want to put a smile on your face? I thought so. Flip through this gallery of photos of Greg Berlanti, Grant Gustin, and Melissa Benoist from their Variety cover photo shoot. Superheroes need to be dark and gritty sometimes, I get it. But they can also walk or fly with a spring in their steps. There’s plenty of room for brooding and joyful, and we’re getting it all. Yay!
Keep reading to learn more about the possibility of Supergirl/Flash/Arrow crossover, to see a clip from the Season 1 finale of The Flash, and to get an iZombie-inspired recipe (no real brains involved, promise).
Supergirl in Central City? Executive producer extraordinaire Greg Berlanti is featured on the cover of the newest Variety, and being that he produces Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, the crossover topic came up. Look, we just want all the superheroes in each other’s shows. I want Liv from iZombie to visit the Central City Police Department, too. Anyway, a crossover isn’t happening yet. Berlanti said, “The network has said publicly at this point they’re going to keep her to. I always approach the shows as a fan first, so I would love to see [a crossover].” But eventually? He said, “I think in success, all things are possible. But there’s a lot that would have to happen before everybody might say yes to that.” [Variety and IGN]
A Moment of Zen. During its seven seasons, Mad Men was never exactly cheerful. It was usually the opposite. But, the series finale offered some hope. Don Draper did some navel gazing (for once) and seemingly got over his issues — some of them. Read Alicia’s post-mortem for all the insight.
Logan and Rory. Gilmore Girls fans: You remember Logan Huntzberger, right? The last of Rory’s boyfriends on the series proposed to her just before she graduated college, to which Rory said no. Matt Czuchry (Logan) joined Reddit for an AMA last week and was asked if he thought Rory made the best decision. He said, “I actually liked how Rory refused Logan’s proposal. I feel that the show is about two strong independent women, and that refusal captures the heart of the show. And I don’t think it was personal to Logan. I just think it was the right decision for Rory regardless of who her boyfriend was.” And now we can sleep tonight. Czuchry will join the Gilmore Girls cast for a reunion next month at the ATX Television Festival. [Vulture]
An Honest Conversation. I have so many questions about The Flash heading into the Season 1 finale: What will Barry do with Wells? Will Barry risk everything and try to save his mother? How is Wells keeping his eyeliner from smudging while in the Pipeline? Hopefully we’ll get answers to some of those questions tonight (the finale airs at 8:00pm ET/PT on The CW), but for now, let’s enjoy a new clip featuring Wells and Barry getting real with each other.

That’s a Problem. After the events of last week’s iZombie, Liv isn’t in a good place. What she needs are the brains of a very upbeat person, but what she gets are the brains of an alcoholic. Ruh-roh. See more photos from “Mr. Berserk” at TV Fanatic.
Speaking of Brains… Would you like to join Liv in snacking on some cerebral cortex? Jenn has a much more palatable version of brains in her recipe for an iZombie Spicy Noodle Salad. You still have plenty of time to put together this treat for tonight’s episode.
Not About Origins. Fear the Walking Dead premieres this summer on AMC, and The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman recently provided some more details about what the spinoff will offer. One important point: This isn’t an origin story about the outbreak. Kirkman doesn’t think that’s an important aspect of the story. Instead, they’re focusing on the part where civilization falls apart. Read more from Kirkman on Fear the Walking Dead here at Nerdist. And while we’re on the subject, Ruben Blades has just joined the cast as a series regular. According to Deadline, he’ll play the father of Mercedes Mason’s character.
Finding More Episodes. If you’re a fan of Finding Carter, MTV’s teen drama, you’ll be happy to know MTV has added another 12 episodes to the Season 2 order. That takes the total to 24 episodes, and you can hear the news straight from Alex Saxon (Max). [Deadline]
