The Walking Dead: What's Gonna Go Down at Oceanside?

You can be forgiven for not remembering the details about Oceanside.

The Walking Dead only visited this all-female colony once, way back in November, in what was at the time the least-watched new episode of The Walking Dead since Season 3 (it's since been replaced by "Say Yes").

In that episode, "Swear," Tara (Alanna Masterson) washed up on Oceanside's shore after getting separated from the still-missing Heath (Corey Hawkins). She learned that this community used to be under Negan's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) rule in another location, but after the Saviors killed all their men and boys older than 10, they fled in the dead of night and ended up here. The Saviors don't know they're there, and Oceanside's leader Natania (Deborah May) wants to keep it that way. They want to be left alone, and they protect themselves with a substantial arsenal.

Tara decided to leave and head back to Alexandria, and on the road home, she realized the Oceansiders escorting her out were gong to kill her. She fought them off with the assistance of Cyndie (Sydney Park), Natania's kind, brave granddaughter, who as payment for saving Tara's life made her swear not to tell anyone about Oceanside.

Tara didn't tell for a long time, but eventually the need for guns in the fight against Negan became too pressing and she told Rick (Andrew Lincoln).

So now, Tara is leading the Alexandrians back to Oceanside, where everyone wants her dead except for one person, who will now think she's a snitch.

The Walking Dead: Here's how Rick can beat Negan

There are three possibilities for how the Alexandrians' rendezvous with Oceanside will go:

1. They will be welcomed with open arms and showered with all the guns they need to fight the Saviors, their common enemy.

2. They will be shot on sight, since Oceanside doesn't want any visitors and has gone above and beyond devising methods to keep them out.

3. There will be some combination of the two, where there will be a skirmish at first until the two groups come to an understanding.

The most likely bet is option #3, since the Oceansiders for the most part are not unreasonable people. Natania won't want to go along with Rick's plan, but Cyndie might, if she can get over the fact that Tara is a rat fink. We'll see what kind of deal can be reached.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.

Melissa McCarthy Explains the Genesis of Her Sean Spicer Impression

It's only March, but Melissa McCarthy already delivered the best comedy bit of the year when she roasted White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live. But it almost never happened.

McCarthy sat on The Ellen Degeneres Show's couch Friday and it wasn't long before the conversation steered towards her Spicer bit. A good friend of McCarthy's, Kent Sublette, is a head writer on SNL, and upon hearing that McCarthy happened to be in New York, he rang her up and asked if she wanted to come in and do Spicer for the sketch show.

McCarthy's reaction? "WHAT!? How am I going to do that?"

Thankfully, that "WHAT!?" turned into a yes, and soon McCarthy was donning a bald cap and screaming like a petulant child.

McCarthy also said she's puzzled about why people think she and Spicer look alike, and that she thinks her Spicer looks like what would happen if her father and Spicer had a baby. She also mentioned that prosthetic ears helped change her face, and once that happened, she was game to go all the way.

"Then, I got into it," she said, "'cause I was like, 'Can I have eye bags?' And the answer was yes."

Let's hope we haven't seen the last of her Spicer.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:35/10:35c on NBC.

Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Teases a Big Jaime-Cersei-Brienne Development

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays kingslaying sister-schtupper Jaime Lannister on Game of Thrones, gave a telling non-answer when the reporter presented him with a popular fan theory. The theory? That Jaime will fulfill a prophecy by killing his sister Cersei (Lena Headey) to save Brienne (Gwendoline Christie), the woman who's become something like his best friend and, fans hope, eventual lover.

Coster-Waldau grinned and said: "That's a great theory."

Hmm. It is a great theory, isn't it? He elaborated on Jaime and Brienne's relationship, saying, "It's built out of contempt, which has turned into real respect, and love -- not that they would ever use that word. I think they feel very strongly for each other. I have no idea if they would ever be able to act on it, and I don't think they would. It's all been about Cersei his whole life."

Niko knows exactly what he's doing. He's giving Brienne and Jaime 'shippers heart palpitations. They love each other? Dangerous words!

Coster-Waldau also almost revealed something from Season 7 before stopping himself, saying that Cersei will have another suitor besides him. This is almost definitely Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbaek), who wants to work with Cersei against her rivals, the Starks.

Oh, and he thought that melting-ice-block premiere date reveal was stupid, too. Apparently showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were embarrassed by it. Hey man, even HBO strikes out sometimes.

Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres Sunday, July 16th at 9/8c on HBO.
