It’s a night of finales as Once Upon A Time and Revenge prepare for their winter hiatuses (they’ll return in the new year!), and Boardwalk Empire ends its dramatic third season. Brace yourself for some major cliffhangers! Plus, scroll down for the scoop on tonight’s all-new episodes of The Good Wife and Homeland (which has just three episodes left itself!). More
Just in time for tonight’s winter finale, InStyle.com caught up with Once Upon A Time star Jennifer Morrison for a preview of what’s to come on the fairytale-inspired show. The big question: Will Morrison’s character Emma ever make it back to Storybrooke? “We clearly are working toward that,” Morrison said, hinting that some unwanted stowaways may be coming with her. “Cora wants to get to her daughter who has outsmarted her in the past, and Hook wants to take revenge on Rumplestiltskin so there’s definitely villains in Fairytale Land that seem like they’re going to impact Storybrooke.” As for Emma, expect more magic when the show returns for the second half of the season! “She’s full fairytale blood. I know that sounds crazy, but she’s truly a fairytale character,” Morrison said. “We’re going to see moments where she realizes she’s capable of things that she never imagined.” Tune in tonight for the winter finale at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.

Bright lip colors aren’t just for summer anymore! Just look at Rihanna, who wore a vibrant red to her album release in New York City. Thanks to the dominant scarlet undertones, the bright pigments balance out, making the shade wearable for the fall. The term “poppy red” is often pegged to most vivid crimson hues, but the flower’s true hue has slight orange hints—a perfect match to the shade Rihanna chose. Just keep the warmth or coolness of your skin tone in mind: Warm complexions look best with colors that have a yellow base, while blue-based lipsticks flatter those with cool skin. We want to know: Would you wear a poppy lip like Rihanna? Answer in our poll!
