Spoiler Alert! The following article contains spoilers on a lot of Monday night's shows, so click away if you've yet to watch and don't want to know what went down! Seriously, if you complain about spoilers in the comments you are the opposite of Batman.
Breaking news: The Bachelor is considering changing its name to The Tierrachelor. OK, not really, but this season belongs to contestant Tierra, whose reign of terror continued in tonight's installment of the ABC reality hit. Over on CBS, Cobie Smulders once again took on the role of '80s teen icon Robin Sparkles for a retrotastic episode of How I Met Your Mother, and The Following made its first big kill over on Fox.
So let's break down Monday night's biggest TV moments, shall we?
RIP, Already: It's not truly a Kevin Williamson show until the first big death. The Following made its first big kill tonight; Agent Riley (Billy Brown), we hardly knew ya! Sure he wasn't a regular, but Agent Riley grew on us pretty quickly (his handsome face helped, obvi), so it was with a heavy heart that we said goodbye. However, from a storytelling point of view, it makes sense to kill off someone close to Mike (Shawn Ashmore) and Debra (Annie Parisse), not just Ryan (Kevin Bacon).
Robin Sparkles Returns: Robin's Canadian pop star past was once again brought up on How I Met Your Mother. Not only did we learn that she went through a grunge phase (Robin Daggers!), but Alex Trebek, Jason Priestley and k.d. lang all clocked in for fun guest appearances. However, the highlight had to be Full House's Dave Coulier's surprise appearance to deny the rumor that Robin's Alanis Morissette-esque single "P.S. I Love You" was about him. We totes think it was about Charlie Conway aka Pacey Witter aka Peter Bishop aka Joshua Jackson, the original Canadian teen heartthrob, eh! (No Degrassi shout-out though?!)
Line of the Night: Is there any doubt? Of course it was Coulier saying "Cut. It. Out." on HIMYM! A close second? Older Ted, who is voiced by Coulier's Full House costar Bob Saget saying, "I always liked that quote." So flippin' money.
We're Concerned for The Bachelor: Is Sean Lowe realizing Tierra the Terrible is really the worst? Seems like it after she crashed his group date like a stage-five clinger. Why? So she could tell him she came to Montana just for him…just like the other 10 girls! "I don't know what to make of it," Sean says of Tierra's "bold" move. At this point, we think Sean isn't sending Tierra home because he's afraid of what she'll do if he does. (We would be too!)
Fashion o' the Night: Sorry Robin Sparkles, but we're giving this to Carrie (Annasophia Robb) and Walt's (Brendan Dooling) epic Princess Diana and Prince Charles Halloween costumes on The Carrie Diaries. Epic costumes are epic! Best advice of the night also goes to the CW charmer for this gem: "It's exhausting being fabulous." Preach!
