    Let me state for the record that I don't condone complaining about spoilers more than a day or so after an episode has aired. I know better than to surf social media on the night of a hotly anticipated season finale. Since my day job involves scanning through hundreds of entertainment news items, I've mastered an entire spoiler-avoiding routine where I click away the instant I see a potentially ruinous headline. But I got spoilered BIG TIME on Game of Thrones last night, and it was all your fault.

    Okay, maybe it wasn't your fault. But if you were one of the many, many people who apparently watches every Game of Thrones episode while clutching your smartphone so you can immediately tweet your reaction to anything momentous that happens onscreen, YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM.

    (I'm about to rant about spoilers while disclosing a spoiler. If you haven't seen last night's "The Lion and the Rose" GoT episode, save yourself! Stop reading now!)

    Last time we saw Don Draper, he had hit a wall and in such a major way that it seemed like he really had no choice but to change course. On top of that, we got the impression he was done running from himself. When he took Sally, Bobby, and Gene to a run-down former whorehouse, aka his childhood home, it looked like he was finally owning his past and his transgressions. And maybe even possibly seeking redemption (a major element creator Matthew Weiner has pointed to as a main season 7 theme).

    So it's no wonder that the first time we saw Don in tonight's season premiere -- which kicks off in late January 1969 -- he was spiffying himself up, shaving, and straightening his tie to greet Megan after his transcontinental flight from New York to L.A.

    The wedding of the season finally premiered tonight on Game of Thrones season 4 during episode 2, "The Lion and the Rose." Clearly the momentum from "Two Swords" isn't slowing down any time soon. Dubbed the "Purple Wedding" by fans, the universally despised King Joffrey gets hitched to the lovely Margaery Tyrell to form an alliance between the two powerful families.

    And it's obvious that everyone behind Game of Thrones pulled out all the stops to host the most extravagant, beautiful, colorful wedding in Westeros. Of course, the show touches on a lot of the other plot points throughout the hour, but the wedding took up a majority of it. And the ending was something fans have been waiting for years to see! So discuss it we must.

    There are MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD for "The Lion and the Rose." This isn't something you want to spoil for yourself thanks to an Internet recap. Watch it for yourself first!

    Tonight on the finale of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the curtain finally rose on Kandi Burruss's big show. I was biting my nails down to the quick with anticipation. That's right, bloody, problematic, should probably get a manicure now anticipation. Would Porsha Stewart ruin the whole affair? Would Mama Joyce and Kandi work out their problems with a little help from some soulful musical numbers? Would anyone show up at all? What about Tyler Perry? And finally, would all of the Housewives show up? 

    The answer to all of these questions? No, sort of, totally, ha ha, yeah Tyler Perry was totally there (once my former roommate described him as being the black George Clooney and I almost peed my pants imagining Clooney playing Madea) -- and NeNe Leakes was a no-show. But the group's most fickle mother-hen had a good reason for not being there.

    Seth Rogen opened SNL with three stellar (and hilarious) cameos on Saturday night. He didn't bother weaving them throughout the show but rather just brought them right out in his opening monologue. One-by-one James Franco, Zooey Deschanel, and Taylor Swift joined him on stage.

    It's back, it's back, it's really, really back! Game of Thrones season 4 debuted to much fanfare and ridiculously high ratings last Sunday. "Two Swords," the season 4 premiere episode, was not to be missed, as it had everything fans had been clamoring for. And it seems like the momentum may not stop until the season finale. If we needed any more proof, it lies in the fact that the highly anticipated Purple Wedding, in an episode called "The Lion and the Rose," will be shown in episode 2! That's this Sunday, people!

    GoT fans have been geeking out about this wedding just as much as season 3's Red Wedding, and from everything we've gleaned from the insiders behind the scenes, this will be the episode to watch. And it's only the second one of the season! How crazy is that! I would say I desperately need a life but this really is all just damn too exciting.

    Matthew Weiner's done it again. In the days leading up to the season 7 premiere of Mad Men, its creator has wagged his finger at the clued-in press, telling them that they can divulge nothing about what fans can expect for what we already know is going to be the beginning of the end. Thus, we're wilder than ever to find whatever spoilers and teasers we can (per usual).

    Thankfully, a handful of juicy details have trickled out. Here, 8 details we (at least think we) know ...

    Walking Dead fans, let's talk about Negan. If you've read the comics, you know exactly who Negan is: the worst bad guy of all time. Like, so bad he makes the Governor look like a candy-ass pile of quivering weaksauce. Negan's the guy behind one of the most horrific and gruesome comics scenes I've ever read, thanks to his weapon of choice, a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire he calls "Lucille."

    Negan isn't just incredibly sadistic and evil, he also has the sort of potty mouth that could never make it to network television. Between his NC-17 violence and his language, it's almost impossible to imagine how Negan will show up on the small screen -- but creator Robert Kirkman has officially confirmed it. Barring the 1 percent chance plans go awry, we can definitely expect this memorable villain to join the cast at some point.

    In the 25th installment of MTV's infamous competition show, we finally abandoned the old playbook. This time around, all of the competitors are individual players and no one is playing as part of a team. They've played with their exes, with their rivals, and with newbies, but this season, it's all about flyin' solo.

    The cast, a healthy mix of challenge veterans (hi, CT!), long-forgotten Real World participants (who's Isaac?), and rookies, will spend this season in Punta del Este, Uruguay. The players on The Challenge: Free Agents will compete for an individual $125,000 prize for the men and women. Not too shabby, huh?

    Just when you thought Scandal couldn't get any more jaw-dropping, the penultimate episode of season 3, "Flesh and Blood," had us gladiators on the edge of our seats up until ... well, we'll probably remain there 'til the season finale next week. Judging from the ending of last week's episode, and Jake telling Olivia that she "just killed the President," it seemed inevitable that we'd see Fitz threatened by Mama Pope's terrorist plot.

    And while he was most definitely flirting with being in harm's way, wanting to get out and campaign with just six days to go 'til the general election, Olivia managed to convince him to stay mostly on lockdown in the White House. That is 'til he defied her to go to Defiance, Ohio (how fitting), where Maya and Adnan originally planned to plant the bomb ...
