FRIDAY

The Wheel of Time

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Amazon Prime Video

Season Finale
Now that we know the identity of the Dragon Reborn, it's time to see if they have what it takes to go toe-to-toe with the Dark One. But as Moiraine (Rosamund Pike) leads her long-sought hero to the Eye of the World, Trollocs are amassing at the gates of Fal Dara. The world seems to hang in the balance… but this is only the first season in a TV adaptation of Robert Jordan's famously-long fantasy epic. Rest assured there are many twists and turns to come. —Christian Holub

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Apple TV+

Series Finale
Hailee Steinfeld's turn as a young Emily Dickinson comes to an end with the series finale of the Apple TV+ series. The third and final season has seen Emily grapple with the importance of poetry in wartime — but the series as a whole has certainly taken a new look at what a period piece can be. Series creator Alena Smith tells EW, "TV has changed a lot from what it used to be. Someone like me, who has this background in playwriting and is more of a literary person, probably wouldn't have been doing TV 15 years ago, but now we are." —Ashley Boucher

Series Finale
Who will Issa (Issa Rae) choose in the HBO dramedy's series finale: Lawrence (Jay Ellis) or Nathan (Kendrick Sampson)? That's the questions viewers were left with after the show's penultimate episode concluded with Issa standing alone following an altercation between her two love interests. While we don't know what the answer is, we do know that Rae stressed over how to end her critically acclaimed series, so much so that she re-wrote the ending two weeks before it was scheduled to start shooting. "Thank God I had a burst of inspiration of what I wanted it to be, and that's what we ended up shooting. I stand by it, I like it," said Rae in EW's October digital cover story. "The other one was good, too, but it just didn't feel like the most [satisfying]. It didn't feel like our show… I can't wait to talk about it when it airs to see if I made the wrong decision." Oh, you can bet Insecure fans will definitely let Rae know how they feel. —Chancellor Agard
