“Veep”: Election resultsSeason 4 of HBO’s political comedy seemed to be headed towards a coin flip -- would Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) win re-election or lose to her rival, leaving her to scramble for some way to remain in D.C. in the show’s fifth season? Of course, departing Armando Iannucci had one more clever trick up his sleeve, and the 20th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution came into play. As Selina’s chosen VP Tom James (Hugh Laurie) seemed poised to become president on a technicality, he asked her one final question, “If that does happen, wanna be my Veep?”

“Jane the Virgin”: Baby Mateo gets kidnappedWe knew from the very beginning that Jane (Gina Rodriguez) would give birth in the Season 1 finale of The CW breakout hit, but we also pretty much knew there was no way this telenovela-inspired dramedy would leave everyone happily ever after. Indeed, within hours of Jane delivering baby Mateo Gloriano Rogelio Solano Villanueva, he had been kidnapped by the dastardly drug dealer villain, Sin Rostro. Luckily, Mateo was returned safe and sound to Jane and Rafael (Justin Baldoni) in the Season 2 premiere, but it was a long summer.

“How to Get Away With Murder”: Who shot Annalise? Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) isn’t really in the same kind of danger as the aforementioned names on this list, rather, the season-long cliffhanger on Season 2 of the Shondaland drama centered on who shot the series’ lead character. Flash-forwards put just about everyone on the suspect list, but it was in the midseason finale it was revealed that it was Wes (Alfred Enoch), urged on by Annalise herself with the revelation that his girlfriend was dead. And you thought you had it rough in school.

“The Walking Dead”: The death and life of Glenn“Game of Thrones” showrunners may be a little miffed that “The Walking Dead” resolved their “is this beloved main character actually dead?” mystery sooner than they did. While Glenn’s (Steven Yeun) fate was left unaccounted for during several episodes, with producers going as far as to remove the actor’s name from the show’s opening credits, the fan-favorite zombie apocalypse survivor did make it out. But “Walking Dead” fans will probably have major trust issues after this one.
