The ladies of Litchfield Penitentiary are back and better than ever.

Netflix released the trailer for Orange is the New Black's second season Thursday, and it finds the inmates full of sass and snark. The whole gang returns for round two – besides religious fanatic Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning), conspicuously absent after the season 1 finale's violent cliff-hanger. But Piper (Taylor Schilling) is in especially fine form, apparently put in solitary due to the scary altercation.

"Sadly, it's starting to feel like home in here," she quips of her white-walled cell.

She won't stay settled for long. A new prisoner, simply called "V", arrives to shake things up. She immediately incurs the wrath of Red (the two seem to be long-lost enemies) yet clicks with Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba).

For any other show, a bomb in a church, a looming election, an attempted murder, the takedown of a shadow government agency, and some face-licking would make for an amazing season finale.

But when you're talking about Scandal, that was just the appetizer. On Thursday, ABC's D.C.-set hit drama, starring Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, wraps up its third season (10 p.m. ET) – and everyone wants to know if it will go out with a bang.

Spoiler alert! In case you missed last week's episode, Olivia's mom, Maya, planted an explosive device in a church where President Grant (Tony Goldwyn) was expected to attend a funeral. The president's chief of staff, Cyrus Beene, was tipped off about the bomb, but decided not to tell anyone about it because the church was already packed with his enemies – while the president was still safely ensconced in the White House.

Jeff Perry, who plays Cyrus, dropped a couple hints about what to expect on the finale.

All the Ways Scandal Has Hidden Kerry Washington's Baby Bump, by the Numbers | Pregnancy, Scandal, Kerry Washington

Every half season of Scandal has its own main scandal: the murder of Amanda Tanner, the election rigging in Ohio, the existence of shadowy CIA squad B613. This spring's abbreviated string of episodes has nominally been centered on the reappearance of Olivia Pope's mother, but true Scandal fans know that that's a false-flag operation. The real scandal at the heart of the spring's half-season is the disappearance of star Kerry Washington's ever-growing baby bump, which the show's producers have attempted to hide with the worst cover-up the show has ever seen.

Don't believe us? Here's the evidence, by the numbers. Pin these up to your wall while a funky Motown song plays.

There's a contestant like Morgan McLeod on every season of Survivor. Young and pretty, they make snarky comments about the older – and less attractive – female contestants. (One of McLeod's gems: "If everyone could choose to be cute or ugly, most would pick cute.")

But McLeod, a 22-year-old student and former NFL cheerleader from San Jose, California, wants to stress that she's not as she appeared on Survivor: Cagayan.

"I'm not a mean girl," she says with a laugh. "I'm not who you think I am."

Spoiler Alert: If you're a Scandal purist and want to wait for Thursday's explosive finale before hearing any of the sudsy details, read no further. But if you ship Huckleberry Quinn, grab your gladiator gear and suit up for this exclusive sneak peek.

What do they call the movie Four Weddings and a Funeral in Westeros?

Five Funerals!

That may be an exaggeration, but you know the concept of matrimony is in trouble in the seven kingdoms when an adult dwarf marrying a teenage girl who hates him is the least-depressing of all the nuptials we've seen on Game of Thrones. Sunday night's much-anticipated royal wedding episode continued the trend, with one high-profile member of the wedding party biting the dust in memorable fashion.

But like a good wedding, "The Lion and the Rose" made sure we were entertained even before the closing-act fireworks. Here's everything that happened in the fourth season's second episode.

Major spoilers below. Proceed at your own risk!
