Fender benders happen to everyone, right? But on this week’s episode of Fox’s hit crime drama Lethal Weapon, the car accident that Detective Wesley Cole (Seann William Scott) was involved in earlier in the day comes back to haunt him.
And it’s all because the other driver is none other than the new Deputy District Attorney, Erica Malick (Nishi Munshi)! Since Captain Avery (Kevin Rahm) is trying to salvage his once-promising political career, having Malick feeling anything but warm thoughts for the police could have ripple effects, so Cole staying out of sight might be a good thing.
This week’s episode was helmed by cast member Keesha Sharp (Trish Murtaugh).
In this exclusive clip, watch how Cole tries to hide himself from being found out during a video conference

Netflix is giving Chilling Adventures of Sabrina fans the best holiday gift they could ask for — a special bonus episode.
Announced nearly a month ahead of its December 14 debut, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale will delve into the holidays, coven-style. As viewers know, Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) is part of The Church of Night which celebrates the Winter Solstice, so the special episode will feature those traditions.
Plus, new original films like ‘The Christmas Chronicles’ and a new season of ‘Fuller House.’
Part of the rituals specific to the holiday include telling ghost stories and singing pagan carols around the Yule Fire. But it’s not so “merry and bright” when uninvited guests show up, as Netflix

Let’s be honest. It’s kind of hard to believe we are really in the Golden Age of Television, seeing that Eden Sher was never even nominated for an Emmy during her run on The Middle.
All of those years as one of the greatest, most unsung talents on the screen, blending heart, humor and awkward adolescence into the inimitable Sue Heck should have be rewarded and we will fight anyone who says otherwise. Hopefully, ABC’s planned Middle spinoff will work out, but until then, we can at least agree that it’s a good day indeed when Sher guests on a show as charming and befitting of her talents as Superstore!
Sue Heck’s story continues.
Both the actress and the

Out with the lightsaber, in with the sword!
Star Wars icon Mark Hamill goes medieval to join the cast of History Channel drama Knightfall, returning for its sophomore season in Spring 2019.
The new Disney animated series debuts in October.
The actor, best known as Luke Skywalker, plays Talus, an initiate master responsible for training new members of the Knights Templar, a devout Christian military order that protects travelers to the Holy Land. He’s tough, wise, hardened and deeply faithful after spending 10 years as a tortured POW captured during a Crusade — which explains those scars.
