Warning: Full spoilers follow for the episode below.
Well that will teach the kids to go off sneaky around for extra biology credit, now won't it? Wayward Pines's "Betrayal" episode saw a fully aware Ethan Burke return to his post as town sheriff, and it sure wasn't pretty. As expected, Ethan ignored Pilcher's advice and told Theresa the truth about their strange little town, but also as expected, she didn't swallow the tale her husband was spinning after being absent for several days. Asking if he had been back in the hospital or if they'd done something to him, Theresa's real reaction to the news went down offscreen, building the suspense as to whether she fully believes him. It was a return to the series' first few episodes, in which audiences were led to wonder if the entire town was something that was actually happening in Ethan's head, and even made us second guess what was actually going on.

Merry Saltzman, the daughter of Bond film producer Harry Saltzman, is bringing Bond to Broadway.
Through her Placeholder Productions company, Saltzman has secured the rights to a Bond stage show, the executive producer revealed to Playbill. The show will be called James Bond: The Musical and will feature music and lyrics from Jay Henry Weisz and a book by Dave Clarke.
James Bond: The Musical will have an original storyline, according to producers, featuring "several Bond villains, plus some new ones." Saltzman also teased the inclusion of "our own Bond girl."
Herbert Chavez, the Superman fanatic who has undergone 23 surgeries to look like the Man of Steel, may have met his Doomsday.
During a recent episode of E!'s Botched, plastic surgeons Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif were shocked to discover that Chavez had been injecting his chest and abdomen with MesoLipo in an effort to gain Superman's glorious abs. The illegal filler, which has left Chavez's chest covered in lumps, was described as "poison" by the surgeons.
Spoiler warning for all of HBO's Game of Thrones...
The time has come. We figured after five seasons, and 50 episodes so far, it's time to rank the best Game of Thrones episodes.
The series isn't over, of course, so this list will probably shift a bit over time, but as of right now here are the very best chapters from HBO's adaptation of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series. Filled with maulings, meltings, charrings, beheadings, and weddings.
It appears Keiji Inafune isn't quite done with his Mega Man spiritual successors.
Today, developer Comcept released a teaser trailer for something called Red Ash: The Indelible Legend. It very heavily suggests it is the long-awaited Mega Man Legends-like game fans have been asking about for years.
"Some legends shape our lives," the trailer starts. "Some legends leave us with the promise of a new tomorrow, and some legends herald greatness, only to lose their way..."
Expect to learn more this Saturday, July 4 when news is announced at the Anime Expo in Los Angeles.
Inafune and the rest of the Comcept team are currently working on Mighty No. 9, another Mega Man-like game that was funded via Kickstarter backing. Mighty No. 9 is scheduled to release on September 15 in North America and September 18 in Europe. It will be available physically and digitally for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U, and digital only for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Dark Horse Comics announced Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare today, to bridge the gap between the two games of the same name.
In the first Garden Warfare, Dr. Zomboss was attacking Suburbia. Garden Warfare 2 has the plants going on the offensive to reclaim their home, and the comic series will explain how Zomboss took control of Suburbia.
The comic will be written by Paul Tobin of the previous PvZ comics Lawnmageddon and Timepocalypse, with art from Jacob Chabot. It will start on October 28. Garden Warfare 2 is set to release in 2016.
An all-new version of Fallout's iconic Valut Boy figure has been announced, and it glows like a nice bottle of Nuka-Cola Quantum.

Along with this, Fallout fans will soon be able to pick up a number of different wasteland-themed vinyls, including Ghouls, Deathclaws, Super Mutants, and Wanderers. And all this just in time to celebrate the upcoming release of Fallout 4.

IGN will of course be there in full force, ready to take in -- and relay to you -- everything the studios unveil.
Interestingly, Sony, Paramount and Marvel Studios are all skipping big presentations this year, but there’s still plenty to look forward to on the movies front. Here are the five movies/movie panels we are most excited for at this year’s show!
Saturday, July 11, 10:30am - 12:00pm, Hall H: Warner Bros. will start Saturday off with a bang as the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice team takes the stage in the giant Hall H at 10:30am. After bringing the house down last year, director Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) return alongside co-stars Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred) and Holly Hunter (who’s she playing? Maybe we’ll find out on Saturday!). Of course, with Marvel Studios not presenting a movie panel this year, Comic-Con 2015 is the DC Cinematic Universe’s to lose. Rumors abound that Suicide Squad and perhaps even announcements regarding the Justice League movie will also be going down on Saturday morning in Hall H.
Things may be heating up more quickly for the codenamed Nintendo NX console than previously thought.
Digitimes reports Nintendo has been visiting their supply chain partners recently and has ordered pilot production on the new system from Foxconn Electronics. This initial manufacturing is likely to begin in October at the latest.
Additionally, mass production on the system is rumored to begin sometime in May or June 2016, with a possible launch in July 2016. They're expected to talk more about the system sometime next year, and several other companies are likely to join in on production.
You'll be able to play as Predator in Mortal Kombat X as early as July 7th if you've purchased the Kombat Pack DLC pass, or you can buy the character separately on July 14th.
NetherRealm revealed the dates on Twitter today with the caption, "Soon the hunt will begin..."
Predator will be the third downloadable character for Mortal Kombat X.
While Nintendo is gearing up to launch a new gaming platform in the near future, it isn't going to abandon 3DS and Wii U owners as soon as the mysterious NX is released.
"Regarding your concern about what will happen to Wii U or what will happen to Nintendo 3DS, NX is a new platform, so the installed base will have to be built up from zero," Nintendo president and CEO Satoru Iwata said in a recent Q&A with investors.
"When NX is launched, there already will be a certain volume of Nintendo 3DS and Wii U hardware widely existing in the market, so from a software business perspective, it would be highly inefficient to stop releasing titles for Nintendo 3DS or Wii U right after the launch of NX," Iwata continued.
Nintendo is looking to appeal to as broad a market as possible with its smartphone games, according to company president and CEO Satoru Iwata.
"As long as Nintendo makes smart device applications, we must make them so that they appeal not just to some limited age group but to a wide age demographic just as our games thus far have been doing, and they should appeal to anyone regardless of their gaming experiences and gender, and most importantly, regardless of different cultures, nationalities and languages," Iwata said during a recent Q&A with investors.
A new photo of Ryan Reynolds as the foul-mouthed antihero Deadpool has surfaced.
The image comes courtesy of EW, who highlights Reynolds' undying desire to play Wade Wilson for over a decade. Give him a look, fully garbed in Deadpool's iconic attire, below.
According to producer Simon Kinberg, "Deadpool is a hard R," reiterating Reynolds' confirmation earlier this year. "It’s graphic. Nothing is taboo. You either commit to a truly outrageous boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don’t."
Windows Insiders who participated in early testing of the upcoming Windows 10 operating system will be the first to get the upgrade on Windows 10's July 29th launch day. Everyone else has to wait.
A new post on the Windows blog explains how Microsoft is planning to roll out upgrades to users in waves, notifying them first of their access to the update and then "slowly scaling up" after launch day.
In June, millions of people secured their copy of Windows 10 after Microsoft opened up reservations. The massive amount of users waiting to upgrade to Windows 10 is part of the reason Microsoft is choosing to take it slow.
Former Xbox head and current EA COO Peter Moore has opened up about what happened at Microsoft with the Xbox 360 "Red Ring of Death" situation.
On Podcast Unlocked 201, Moore said the company knew there was a problem with the Xbox 360 once they all started looking at customer reports coming in.
"We knew we had a problem," Moore said. "I remember going to Robbie Bach, my boss, and saying, I think we could have a billion dollar problem here.

With the new Image Comics series Hadrian's Wall being announced at today's Image Expo, we had a chat with the creative team -- writers Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel and artist Rod Reis -- about reteaming for this new project.
But first, here’s the official synopsis for Hadrian's Wall:
In 1985, tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union culminated with nuclear detonations in New York City and Moscow. In the decades after, the two super powers found peace through a partnership focused on building the first colony in space. But now, one hundred years later, a new Cold War simmers… between Earth and that very Colony.
