True Detective, season finale
And just like that, Rust Cohle and Martin Hart have disappeared from the psychosphere of our television sets, with HBO airing the final episode of "True Detective" season one last night. And everyone was watching. In fact, so many people hit the network's HBO GO service that it crashed, leaving many fans looking at an endless load sign, as they took to the Internet to voice their fury. But by now, fans have caught up with the fate of Rust and Martin and their search for The Yellow King, and are left with that feeling of what to do next.

True Detective, season finale
For over fifteen years a conspiracy and myth has haunted Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson), one involving a yellow king, a man with scars and the mysterious destination of Carcosa. An evil had spread its branches across Louisiana, something pervasive, powerful and for the longest time untouchable. The name of God was used as a cover for unspeakable crimes and killings, and Rust, Martin and anyone else who touched that darkness, found it touching them right back. "All my life I wanted to be nearer to God. The only nearness? Silence," Joel Theriot (Shea Whigham) said in episode six, "Haunted Houses." But in "Form And Void," that silence has answers.

Girls
"I don't want you to spend your whole life socializing him like he's a stray dog, making the world a friendlier place for him," Hannah's (Lena Dunham) mother warned her in last week's "Flo." At the time it seemed like a cruel remark, but in "Role-Play," the observation has turned out to be prescient. Adam (Adam Driver) has changed considerably since we first met him in season one as a sexually depraved, alcoholic weirdo with anger issues. It was hard to imagine then that Hannah and Adam would not only stay together, but would become domestic.

Game Of Thrones
Superfans of "Game Of Thrones" might be wondering about a scene, seemingly skipped over from the books, centered around Jamie's return to King's Landing and his reunion with Cersei. But as Lena Headey recently told Vulture, it could still be coming. "Well, I can tell you that will, uh ... that's in there. It's horrendous. It's kind of crazy," the actress teased. "Interesting to film, because we were ... she's in deep pain, and he wants her, because he missed her, and he needs to know she wants him. It's just a weird, fucked-up moment. It's quite mad! [Laughs.] Quite mad. And it's a great transition for him, the loss of someone he doesn't particularly like, but that he's connected to, on a deep level."

Silicon Valley
"We're taking shots, but at the same time we're respectful. I don't think we're sneering at Silicon Valley," executive producer Alec Berg told THR about this upcoming HBO comedy. "It would be the same thing if you were doing something about show business: There are certain aspects of it that are great and people who genuinely care about what they're doing and honestly believe in the products they're making and aren't just money-grubbing scumbags—and then there are outsize personalities who are parodies as human beings and aspects that are ripe for satire."

The Normal Heart Mark Ruffalo Taylor Kitsch
Over the past couple years, HBO has been a quiet-but-steady presence at the Cannes Film Festival, where they unspool their movies out of competition (with Steven Soderbergh's "Behind The Candelabra" an exception in 2013). "Hemingway & Gellhorn," "Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight," "Seduced And Abandoned"—those are the movies that have joined Soderbergh's in walking the red carpet in the south of France. And while nothing is official, we'd lay down some good money that the same will happen for "The Normal Heart." But even if not, you won't have to wait long to see this one for yourself.

The Knick Promo
New York City in the early 1900s was dirty, filthy... a place of innovation, and one of danger, where everyone strived to make the most in a city teeming with opportunity. But whether you were rich or poor, everybody was the same when you went under the knife at Knickerbocker Hospital. And that's where the action is centered in "The Knick," Steven Soderbergh's ten-part miniseries for Cinemax.

So, what are people going to do on Monday when "True Detective" is over and parodies will quickly become dated? Well, "Game Of Thrones" and "Mad Men" are right around the corner, but before that, The Yellow King needs to be found, and "The Simpsons" have done just that.
