When we last left off on Pretty Little Liars Season 5, Mona was shockingly killed by a mystery assailant. But that does not mean we’ve seen the last of her on PLL. In fact, she is still a series regular, and she will play a big role in the Christmas special.

“She’s going to have a fun part,” Parrish said of Mona’s appearance in PLL Season 5, Episode 13. “She’s going to be the Ghost of Christmas Past, Present and Future. She gets to mess with Alison, and in a fabulous costume, I might add.”

The synopsis for “How The ‘A’ Stole Christmas” reveals that Aria, Emily and Hanna will try to clear Spencer’s name after she was arrested for Bethany’s murder.

“When we last saw her, she was arrested for Bethany’s murder and she is out on parole, but it is looking like a very grim holiday season for Spencer when we see her,” producer Marlene King said of the PLL Season 5 Christmas special. “She’s definitely the Scrooge of the episode. She has no desire to celebrate anything happy or merry about Christmas. So the Pretty Little Liars are gifted with a treasure map of sorts that give them hope to find a way to give Spencer a merry Christmas.”

Of course, since it’s the holiday season, there will be plenty of sweet moments for the various Pretty Little Liars Season 5 couples in Tuesday's Christmas special. Hanna will share an adorable dance with Caleb, while spoilers reveal that there will be some major developments in Paige and Emily’s relationship.

Unfortunately all the beautiful traditions and Mystic Falls flashbacks featuring Elena, Bonnie, and Caroline as a trio of ordinary giddy schoolgirls who, by the way, are blissfully unaware that their lives will soon be torn asunder by good-looking bloodsuckers will be marred by three things: a. Stefan delivering devastating news to Care Bear, Enzo forcing Matt to help him “deplete every ounce of happiness from Stefan’s life, and Kai continuing his messy ritual of killing “friends” and family members during annual celebrations.

If Malachi Parker hasn’t already been placed on Santa’s naughty list, his behavior in The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 10 certainly will earn him a prime spot. According to the extended preview trailer, Kai not only stabs his own sister Jo inside a dingy crypt and then tries to siphon Liv’s magic again, but he also targets Elena and knocks her out with a crowbar. Honestly, he needs to take a chill pill, kick his feet up, and indulge in a gourmet hot chocolate beverage you know, in place of MURDER AND TORTURE.

What else is going on in Mystic Falls? Well, a handful of characters appear to be lingering at the local hospital so that’s a pretty alarming sign. Not only that, but they have tears in their eyes and are hugging it out hardcore which can only mean one thing: One of our precious endangered species humans is in mortal danger. Let’s just hope Enzo kept his neck-snapping hands off the “blond bowl of mush known as Matt Donovan.” Oh, and to add salt to injury, Bonnie is spending Christmas alone. Something about a winter holiday in May just doesn’t seem fun. Poor girl.

Anyway, enough of our semi-freaking out. Catch all the misery and near fatal attacks in the official promo video for “Christmas Through Your Eyes” below! Then drop us a comment telling us what you’d love to put in Kai’s stocking this year.

Supernatural season 10 kicks off this week but for the mean time in the previous episode despite being cured of being a demon, Dean struggled against the blood lust of the Mark of Cain. Meanwhile, the brothers came across a 300-year-old witch, Rowena, capable of killing demons with her magic. However, after Cole interrupted their confrontation, Rowena escaped only to be captured by Crowley’s demons. But when Crowley confronted her, he recognized Rowena as his mother.

On the other hand, Hannah and Castiel continued on their mission to find rogue angels. But when they ran into the husband of Hannah’s vessel, Hannah realized it was time to start putting the humans first and returned to Heaven. This inspired Castiel to look into Jimmy Novak’s connections.

In the next episode of Supernatural Season 10 Episode 8 entitled Hibbing 911 , Jody Mill reluctantly attends a mandatory sheriff’s retreat and is partnered with an overeager sheriff named Donna who wants to bond. Just as Jody thinks things can’t get any worse, a body with just strings of meat and skin hanging off the bones is discovered. While the local sheriffs blame an animal attack, Jody knows better and calls Sam and Dean. Tim Andrew directed this episode with teleplay by Jenny Klein and story by Jenny Klein & Phil Sgriccia.

Here is the promo of the upcoming episode:

Time to set back and watch the originals season 2 episode 6 don't forget to grab your popcorn.What do you do when your son you know, the child you purposely weakened in order to cover up your steamy indiscretions with a local werewolf hunk demands that you return his brother and his best suit in one piece? Why, you tempt him with the long buried truth about his real father of course. At least, that’s what the conniving Lenore a.k.a. Esther Mikaelson when Klaus came a-knocking on her door: she doused him with a cold, harsh of reality. As for the rest of the characters, they didn’t have it any easier. Ever the brave soul, Hayley sought out the MIA Jackson only to find him under the thrall of a creepy-ass mentor. Meanwhile, Cami, suspicious of her new advisor Vincent, turned to Marcel for help. Unfortunately, their little snoop session turned deadly when they discovered the truth about his true identity.

In a desperate attempt to play mind games with her son and distract him from saving Elijah from himself, Esther reveals a shocking truth. His real father is alive and his name is Ansel, just like the famed photographer/hunk who portrayed Augustus Waters in The Fault in Our Stars. And the only reason she ever ignited a passionate affair with him was because Mikael went from loving husband to abusive tyrant. You see, after he returned home and found out that his firstborn had perished in his absence, Mikael freaked out as any parent would. However, instead of channeling his grief through tears and sadness he became cruel and intolerable, forcing Esther to run full-speed into the arms of another man. A few slow-jam-inspired, love-making sessions later, Baby Klaus came kicking and crying his way into the world. Oh and surprise: Ansel is alive and just so happens to be Jackson’s life guru! When Klaus comes face-to-face with him he gets all Old Testament Darth Vader on him: “Niklaus, I am your father.” Chills!

We finally find out the name of Esther and Mikael’s firstborn who passed away at a young age: Freya, named ofter the Norse goddess for beauty, love, and destiny. Apparently the poor little Viking died from the plague and this changed the course of the Mikaelson family.

Klaus coming to the rescue of the brother who’s always believed in his redemption. The almighty hybrid set his hubris aside for a few minutes and allowed his kind, gentle nature to emerge. He did this with Hope and now with the sibling who never quit on him even when he daggered him. He tries to wake him up but, unfortunately, Elijah is not in the right state of mind. Esther has inflicted some terrible magic on him, and he’s currently comatose, drifting deeper and deeper into his nightmares in which all his monstrosities are brought to light. But don’t worry, loves, because Klaus is far from happy about this situation and vengeance will be sweet. No one dares to mess with a hybrid’s favorite brother and gets away with it.

First, we learn that Esther has a sister named Dalia. Then, we learn that Esther visits her witchy sis in Norway in 972 A.D. and makes a deal: If she helps her conceive a child with Mikael, Esther promises to pays her debt back at a later time. Well, it appears jealousy and ruthlessness run in the family because Dalia appears at the end of the episode in a flashback demanding something heartbreaking from her own flesh and blood: her firstborn, Freya.

Apparently Dalia has claimed every firstborn born in their lineage, which is why Esther concocted the vampire spell in the first place. And perhaps the most heartbreaking moment of all? Learning that Freya was taken by force from her mother’s warm arms.

When Big Sis comes to collect her due payment, she rips a crying Freya away from her birth mom and carries her away right into a blizzard. That being said, this moment also provides fans insight as to why Finn is a total mama’s boy. He was old enough to witness what happened and respectful enough to carry the burden of her secret. And because of this, they have a unique bond.

According to what Esther tells Klaus, his birth renewed Mikael’s spirit and made him feel whole. This prompted the births of Henrik, Kol and Rebekah and, because of Klaus and his adorable dimples, they learned how to be a family again. Some might even say he brought them HOPE…..

The cat’s out of the bag. Marcel fills Cami on the latest gossip on the French Quarter namely, that Finn Mikaelson is masquerading around town as her advisor. Quite understandably, she freaks out because she’s revealed such intimate details about her life to a fraud. Once she settles down though, she agrees to lend a hand in distracting him via her psych student-babble deep and meaningful conversation. After inviting him out to drinks and pummeling him with questions galore, Finn grows suspicious of Cami’s sudden interest in him and why she wants to hear him assess Klaus’s personality. However, he shakes off any hesitation because, gosh darnit, he’s crushing on her harder than a Belieber on the Biebs. Even though Miss Camille is into the bad boys and not into mommy knickers-washing blokes, Finn seems to think he and his spiffy sweater vests have a shot. Cami notices his attraction towards her and let’s Marcel know that they can use this to their advantage.

Mama ‘I Know Everything’ Mikaelson apparently didn’t realize that Mikael had dropped by from The Other Side. Klaus breaks the news to her, and it really seems to rattle her. He smirks, elated to have one upped his mom, and reveals the Destroyer has risen again thanks to Davina. “Surely Kol has revealed everything to you?” he muses. “Or is mother’s loyal, little boot licker not quite so loyal after all?” Judging by Esther’s stunned expression, it appears as though Kol won’t be getting dessert after supper for a couple of weeks. Anyway, shouldn’t Esther be more thrilled to learn her hubby’s back? Well, when you think about it, he’s trying to kill their kids while she’s trying to save them so his reappearance kinda puts a damper on her plans.

After Klaus dismisses Hayley’s offer to help him hunt down Elijah, she turns to Marcel and Gia (Nishi Munshi). They’re unable to find Elijah despite their best efforts, so they decide to track down Oliver instead. Once they figure out his whereabouts, they can gather clues about where Elijah’s being held captive. So what’s the plan? Marcel and Gia distract Finn, who’s controlling the werewolves, while Hayley tracks down the pack’s hunky alpha, Jackson.

Sad news, sweethearts. Olly is gone to a land that is not where Bonnie Bennett is meaning, he can’t ever come back. While trying to help Hayley free their werewolf pack from Finn and Esther’s control, Olly ran into the aforementioned individuals and got chained up and tormented. we did appreciate his soft spot for children so we didn’t appreciate seeing him tortured.
The story of the survivors continues in the walking season 5 episode 5 as they are going back to Atlanta to find the cure. We leave Beth, Carol, and the hospital of doom in Atlanta in order to check on Glenn, Maggie, Abraham Ford, and the others who left for Washington, DC. We start with an effective group-bonding scene in which we learn that Eugene is still holding to his “classified” information on the off chance that there might be like, official hearings or something someday. Also he likes his mullet because his old boss told him it makes him look like “a fun guy”. That’s great because Eugene is a total bummer, really, and also seems to be suggesting that his big plan to save the world involves missiles. And them the bus crashes because no one is ever leaving Georgia.

This episode we get to find out about Abraham’s past through a series of flashbacks. We see him protecting his family in a supermarket, curb-stomping a fellow survivor. They’re already on the run, so this isn’t day one of the zombie apocalypse, but his family is blatantly terrified by him, and the fact that he’s just killed a guy, so it’s not progressed far enough that they really understand what it takes to survive, either.

The current timeline in the episode is concerned with Abraham getting his troupe down the road to DC. The church bus crashes because cars on this show invariably crash, but we learn that Eugene actually sabotaged the bus himself. His logic is a little convoluted, but he thinks that the closer they get to fulfilling his “mission”, the less the group will need him and be likely to protect him. Tara is like, “that’s bullsh*t, we’re all in this together,” but where Eugene has previously put off mildly concerning vibes, he’s now emitting full-blown red light alerts.

There’s a cool escape sequence involving a fire truck and its water hose—the longer this show goes on, the more you can feel the SFX guys trying to out-do one another with zombie kills—but the key part of the current timeline is that Eugene is troubling not least because he watches Abraham and Rosita having sex, and Abraham is losing it. He has a seeping wound on his hand from the fight at the church, and his mental state seems to be in the same kind of slow bleed. He’s barely holding it together, and only the thought of getting to DC so that Eugene can save the world is keeping him going.

Which is problematic because Eugene is full of sh*t. There is no plan, no Hail Mary—he’s not even a scientist. He was just lying to get people to protect him, because he knew that though he is smart, he’s also not the best equipped to deal with survival. So he tricked people into taking care of him, including Abraham. The final flashback shows that, scared of him, Abraham’s family fled and ended up being eaten by zombies. Just moments from taking his own life, it’s Eugene’s pleas for help and the promise of a mission that pulls Abraham back. Eugene’s revelation isn’t just shocking to Abraham, it’s a devastating blow to everything he’s built his post-apocalyptic life on. He’s lost everything.

Next week we’re flipping back to Carol and Daryl searching for Beth, so it’ll be a bit before we find out what’s next for Abraham and the others. Presumably, Glenn will get them going back toward Rick & Co. Let’s just hope that in his grief, Abraham doesn’t go through a farmer phase like Rick did. I can deal with Abraham rage-punching Eugene to death. I can’t deal with another f*cking farming phase.
The vampire diaries season 6 makes a new twists in what happen to Bonnie and Damon but somehow and finally he is back in the real world. What about Bonnie? isn’t exactly the reaction Damon was hoping to get from Elena upon his return on Thursday’s Vampire Diaries. Her literally jumping out the window to avoid him was merely the icing on his three-layer cake of disappointment.

But because Elena’s always been a flip-flopper it’s my favorite quality of hers, second only to her ability to make family members magically disappear she decided she wanted Alaric to un-compel her into remembering her love for Damon. This would have been a solid plan, had a freak incident not stripped Alaric of his vampirism, and with it, the ability to jog Elena’s memory.

It looks like Damon’s going to have to win Elena’s heart back the old-fashioned way, and if it means more of these incredible drawings, I’m all in:

There’s always been something off about Alaric’s new boo, and this week, Elena finally put her finger on it: Jo is a witch! To be fair, Elena didn’t exactly stumble upon this conclusion all by herself. “I know what Alaric is and I know what you are,” Jo told her point-blank after catching Elena checking her coffee for vervain. And while it seemed her bewitching nature would derail her relationship with Alaric, it might actually be the one thing keeping them together; she followed him during Operation: Save Damon and kept him alive after a devastating attack. Unfortunately, because this all went down beyond the Mystic Falls border, Alaric is no longer an all-powerful vampire capable of compulsion.

Speaking of new boos, Jeremy’s lady friend or is she Matt‘s lady friend? continued investigating her parents, now known to be Zach Salvatore and Gail Somethingstein. Matt delivered the comforting news that all of her remaining family members are bloodsucking monsters, but something tells me that won’t deter Sarah from sticking around for a bit. Anyone think they know what she’s really up to? Because I haven’t the foggiest.

Raise your hand if you thought Stefan and Caroline’s big confrontation at the end of the episode was going to result in a kiss. … Oh, everyone? Well, it didn’t. “After all this, I don’t want to be friends anymore,” she told him, at which point she was supposed to say, “I want to be more.” But she didn’t say that. She didn’t say anything. She just stormed off into the night, leaving Stefan sad and alone once again. Could Steroline really be over before it even began?

And then there’s Jeremy, poor hulky, broody Jeremy. He’s always been an emotional wreck, but now that he’s accepting Bonnie’s gone forever she’s not, by the way he’s going H.A.M. on everyone and everything, especially his battered cell phone. That poor little guy never stood a chance.

Everyone is just getting excited as Nina Dobrev will be in this episode of The Originals as the original doppleganger Tatia. Let us wrap up the originals season 2 episode 5.

Elijah is bloodied up and stalking a girl, who looks a lot like Hayley, down a hall. He reaches her, spins her around, and she looks like Elena now, or, rather, Tatia. He sinks his teeth into her neck, and awakes with a start.

Elijah has found himself chained up in the witches tomb/all purpose room that we have seen used so many times before. Esther, now in Lenore’s body, won’t let him go until she has said her peace. Esther wants to show Elijah the monster he truly is by revealing how he destroyed Tatia, not her.

Elijah looks on as Tatia and Klaus dance around a pyre. She looks for Elijah, however, and as soon as he walks away, she chases after him. We learn that Tatia has already lost a husband to battle, and that she was supposed to throw herself on the pyre as was customary for their time. She tells him that she has chosen to give her heart to him, and they have their kiss by the pig pens.

Kaleb and Cami are attending to Davina while Klaus hangs in the doorway threatening and being generally surly. He hands over the stake to Cami, and sends her to get the car to take Davina to the hospital. As soon as they’re alone, Klaus lets Kaleb know that he is well aware that Kol is in control of this body. They bicker, as always, and when Klaus calls to Cami and gets no response, he runs to the car to find her gone, the window bloody, and Mikael no longer lying prone in the trunk.

Klaus calls Elijah for reinforcements, then asks Kol/Kaleb to wake Davina so she can call Mikael back. He refuses. Klaus whooshes off to find Mikael while Kaleb tends to Davina, ignoring a call. When his nose begins to bleed, he answers the second call and we find out that it’s Finn. He tells Finn of Davina’s plan to unlink her friends from Klaus, then kill him.

Mikael and Cami are tromping through the woods. When Mikael tells her of his intentions to use her as leverage, she balks, shaming him for holding Klaus’ parentage against him as his fatal flaw. Mikael hushes her and goes off in search of food. They stumble across a party in the woods, AKA a buffet.

Kaleb finds what Davina was using to bind her spell, and she wakes. Kaleb tells her what’s been going on, and she sets her sights on finishing her spell before Mikael can find Klaus and kill him. Hayley goes to Marcel to let him know that the young wolves they rescued are safe and sound, only to realize that Elijah isn’t answering calls. She senses something is going on, and races off to find him, Marcel on her heels.

Elijah hasn’t fed in a while, prompting Esther to reminisce about what she and Mikael did to their children. We then flash back to a wooded area where Klaus sits cowering in fear, human body parts strewn around the clearing. Elijah arrives on the scene and tells his brother that he slaughtered six villagers. Klaus shakes with horror at what he’s become. The boys discover that Klaus is afflicted differently than any of the other Mikaelson siblings. Tatia stumbles on the scene, and Elijah remembers that he compelled her to forget what she saw.

Esther sends him back to the memory, and we see Elijah reassuring Tatia that he loves her, and that he wouldn’t hurt her. As they stand there, Elijah smells blood on her and feeds.

Mikael compelled the entire party to stand tall in front of Klaus and insult him. Klaus begins tearing them down.

Dawn has come and gone, and Mikael marches Cami into an abandoned building. They fight, Cami standing up for Klaus and reiterating that his mother’s infidelity should not be held against him, while Mikael regales her with Klaus’ laundry list of sins. He recalls Henrik’s and Esther’s deaths as fodder for his hatred toward Klaus. Cami tries to reason with him that his violence is pointless, but Mikael just simply laughs to her face.

As Klaus fights the horde, Mikael feeds on Cami. Klaus gets a call from Hayley, who is looking for help finding Elijah. She and Marcel found a blood trail to follow. Klaus cannot help though, as he has the matter of Mikael to attend to. Klaus insists that either himself or Mikael will be ash by the time this confrontation is done.

Davina continues working her spell, but is having no luck. She goes to channel Kaleb’s power, and learns of Kol’s true history. They start hexing each other until Kol calls it off, and tells her all about the craziness of the Mikaelson parents. He tells her that he either had to kill the spell or kill her, and he has grown to like Davina, so he killed the spell. She asks him how he unspelled her bracelet and freed Mikael, and he promises to show her.

Elijah accuses Esther of tampering with his memories. He doesn’t remember harming Tatia, but as he stands before her, she tells him of how she allowed him to forget his wrongdoing. She gave him the ability to maintain his nobility by hiding his indiscretions behind the red door in his mind. Throughout the centuries, as long as he looked presentable, he could keep his secrets locked away.

Elijah looks her in the eye and defies her, saying that she will never break him. She tells him that he is already broken, but not beyond repair. She can, and will, fix all of her children.

…with a little help from her friend Davina wants to break the spell on the White Oak Stake, and Kol tells her that an object that powerful can only be disabled for a short time.

Klaus enters the abandoned building and Mikael is waiting with Cami’s bloody body in his clutches. They fight. Kol tells Davina that she needs his power to do the spell, and she channels him. Klaus falls with the White Oak Stake in his heart, but rather than dying and burning up, he only falls. Davina and Kol were successful. Cami pulls the Stake from Klaus’ chest just in time as the spell dies.

Mikael finds Cami holding the stake and threatens her. Marcel walks onto the scene and slaps Mikael around. Mikael gets the upper hand, but only temporarily. The entire band of them stand together, and Mikael runs off.

Marcel isn’t happy with Davina, what with her bringing Mikael back and all, but Kol stands up for her. Marcel may not know who he is, but we think he senses that something more is going on than Davina just having found a friend. Davina holds the White Oak Stake, and intends to use it to kill Klaus.

Esther tells Elijah that he will hang where he stands until he remembers all of his atrocities, and that when he is weak, she will release him. As Esther finished, Hayley drained her, freed Elijah, and kissed him before letting him feed on her. We then see that this is all a dream, as Elijah remains shackled where he stood, eyes open, yet lost in another place.
