Spoiler Alert! The following article contains spoilers on a lot of Wednesday 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 gum on the TV world's shoe.
Sorry, Pretty Little Liars, but Arrow is stealing your thunder and forming an "A" Team of its very own! Tonight on the CW hit drama, another person was brought in on the secret and we were loving it. Plus, Rayna (Connie Britton) is officially starting to lose it on Nashville, and Supernatural blessed us with the gift of seeing the Winchesters in hipster glasses.
Oh, and a Game of Thrones star joined the X-Men sequel and a Harry Potter fan favorite is heading to TV!
The "A" Team Expands: Not only has Emily Bett Rickards been upped to a series regular for Arrow's second season, but the show made a bold move in bringing her character Felicity in on Oliver's (Stephen Amell) superhero secret. And to this development we say: Huzzah! Seriously, how effortlessly did she take the big news and just roll with the punches, helping Diggle (David Ramsey) to save Ollie's life after being show by his mother. (Way harsh!) Though she says she's only sticking around until they find Oliver's MIA stepfather, something tells us Felicity, who upgraded the team's computer system in a flash, will probably have a change of heart.
And while we really, really like the idea of Oliver and Felicity eventually hooking up, we want it to be the slowest of burns. And did anyone else feel a spark between Felicity and Diggle? Just checking...
Nashville's Next Trainwreck: After learning of her husband's affair, Rayna kind of loses it. In truly spectacular fashion. First, she makes out with producer Liam (Michiel Huisman) and then she forgets her lyrics onstage and has a big ol' breakdown. But doesn't Britton make an emotional breakdown look amazing? It's probably the hair.
Line of the Night: "I need to be a big boy and patch things up, and move back in with my mom," Dylan says on Modern Family. Oh, you shaggy-haired idiot. Never leave us!
Awesome News of the Night: Tyrion Lannister is teaming up with the X-Men! "Officially like to welcome
#PeterDinklage from #GameOfThrones to #XMEN #DaysofFuturePast Very very excited," director Bryan Singer tweeted tonight. Has casting news ever been so money? Trick question because in equally as awesome casting news, Harry Potter's very own Ron Weasley, aka Rupert Grint, joined the CBS pilot Super Clyde. The night was cold and full of awesome news for nerds! In less than awesome news, ABC has banished Happy Endings, one of TV's funniest and strongest sitcoms, to Friday nights. Boo! Hiss!
.Gif of the Night: Dean (Jensen Ackles), In. Hipster. Glasses. On. Supernatural. You're welcome, world!
