Our top moments of the week:
12. Worst Dating Rule: Ryan Lochte may not want to do The Bachelor, but he's still looking for love on What Would Ryan Lochte Do? the only way he knows how. Seriously, he only knows one way: take a girl out for a little raw fish, because he's "never met a girl that didn't like sushi." (Until he meets Megan, who has never eaten sushi or even heard of wontons.) When his older sisters learn this, they reprimand him for taking all his dates to the same place. "It might be the same place. It might be the same table," he says. "But it's a different girl." Deep.
11. Worst Intervention: Ever since she first popped up earlier this season, Alicia's mom, Veronica (Stockard Channing), has made no secret of her dislike for Peter on The Good Wife. So when Alicia tells her that Peter wants to renew their vows, she also tells her to stay away from Peter or she'll never see her grandkids again. Veronica still manages to get involved by going to Will instead and asking if he loves her daughter. "You have a very small window, but it's closing," she tells him. Yup, we're sure this is exactly what Alicia had in mind.
10. Best Timing: He may be a first-time coach on The Voice, but Usher sure knows what makes good live TV. After Shakira cuts C. Perkins loose, he hugs each of the judges on his way out of the theater. But what's this? As Perkins approaches Usher's red chair, the feisty judge pushes his button to steal the ousted singer at the last possible minute. Best goodbye present ever!
9. Best Reveal: On Bates Motel, Dylan tries to convince his half-brother, Norman, to get away from their controlling mother Norma. He shares his theory that Mommie Dearest killed Norman's father. Not exactly, says Norma. Actually, it was Norman, in a catatonic rage, who offed his dad to protect his mother. Norma then staged the scene to make it look like an accident, which Norman believes when he snaps out of it. More bad news: Norman's fits of rage are becoming more frequent; we're, like, minutes from seeing the cross-dressing slasher emerge.
8. Most Delusional: After becoming Internet-famous for uttering two curses as his first — and practically last -- words as a local news anchor in Bismarck, N.D., A.J. Clemente stops by the Late Show to talk to David Letterman about the viral video. After admitting that he "crawled in bed and called my parents" after the broadcast, Clemente says that he's open to "better offers" now that he's between gigs. "If ESPN comes knocking ..." he tells Letterman. This guy is so... the opposite of en fuego.
7. Bloodiest Death: Jacob has never been the most devoted of Joe's acolytes on The Following, so it's no surprise that he wants out... with Emma. "All those people — they just gave up their lives. For what? To be part of some book he wrote?" he pleads to her. "I don't want to die for him, Emma. I don't want you to die either." Too bad she doesn't feel the same way! "I love you too, Jacob. And I love Joe," she says before slashing his neck. "And I don't know how to love you both." And we don't know why a gallon of blood gushed out of his neck.
6. Most Shocking Twist: Scandal finally sheds light on Huck's backstory, revealing that the happy-go-lucky soldier-turned-ruthless assassin was a member of B613, a CIA Black Ops division created to torture and kill people. What was more shocking than finding out Huck actually had a wife (Fringe's Jasika Nicole) and a son while doing this is that Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) is also a member of B613. Gulp!
