'Forever' fan recap: Party like it's 1979

Season 1 | Episode 16 | “Memories of Murder” | Aired Feb 24, 2015

In “Memories of Murder,” Forever continues to masterfully weave the past with the present. As Henry and Jo investigate the murder of Sarah (Auden Thornton), a young coed, Henry is reminded of his relationship with Abigail and the pain of losing her.

Sarah was involved with an older man, Neville (Cotter Smith), who hired her to play the role of his deceased wife. He rented the apartment he and his wife had once lived in (lucky it was available!) and decorated it—down to the last detail—like their ’70s home. Sarah would come over and act out specific memories for Neville using scripts that he had given her. On the night she died, they were reenacting the night Neville’s wife told him she was pregnant.Read More

Emily Kinney discusses her guest spot on ABC's 'Forever'

Since leaving her role on AMC’s The Walking Dead in the mid-season-five finale, Emily Kinney has been busy. In this exclusive interview, the EW Community caught up with Emily in between music gigs, TV guest spots, and recording a new album to learn what she’s been up to and get the inside scoop on her upcoming role on ABC’s Forever.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY COMMUNITY: What’s the experience been like, being killed off of a show? The fans were pretty upset about it.Read More

'Forever' fan recap: We are family

Season 1 | Episode 15 | “The King of Columbus Circle” | Aired Feb 10, 2015

Forever keeps finding interesting ways for Henry’s long and complicated past to make its way into his present. Sometimes the connections are more metaphorical, other times they are more concrete. In “The King of Columbus Circle,” it is the latter.

When an old man is found dead in a park, Henry takes one look at a surgical scar on his abdomen and knows he is the doctor who did the procedure. He also knows the man was once the king of a small country called Urkesh.

Long ago forced to leave his homeland after a coup that killed his entire family, Armen Aronov had been living for decades in quiet anonymity in New York City. As he neared the end of his life, he had one wish: to return to his home country to die. Unfortunately, he was murdered before he had a chance to realize his dream.Read More

'Forever' fan recap: Adam's baaack

Season 1 | Episode 14 | “Hitler on the Half-Shell” | Aired Feb 3, 2015

If there’s one theme that’s been running through Forever from the very start, it’s that things are not always what they seem. Such is the case when the team discovers the murdered body of Karl Haas (Brian Corrigan).

At first glance, Karl, the son of a prominent Nazi, appears to be the evil spawn of a heinous man. Karl is a secretive, quiet man who, according to his son, spends all of his time alone, surrounded by extremely expensive art. As it turns out, the art in his possession is actually stolen.Read More

EW Community SOS: Save Our Shows

Last week, EW published a full report card examining how each network’s shows were faring at the midseason point. Here at the Community, we were bummed to find that some of our favorite series are at risk of being canceled. A world without Henry Morgan? Rayna James? Emily Thorne?! We could cry just thinking about it.

Here is a list of shows we’d like to see renewed—and our best arguments for why they should be!Read More

'Forever' recap: Old wounds

Season 1 | Episode 13 | “Diamonds Are Forever” | Aired Jan 13, 2015

For the fans of Forever who have been waiting for an episode to delve deeper into the personal life of Detective Jo Martinez, “Diamonds Are Forever” finally delivered. When a man gets hit by a car down the block from Jo’s house and his DNA is found at the scene of a diamond heist, it appears the two are connected. The victim, Aaron Brown (Tyler Elliot Burke) has a long rap sheet, including an arrest several years ago for diamond theft, so Jo assumes that he robbed the store before getting killed. As she explains to Henry, criminals don’t change their stripes.Read More

'Forever' recap: Kill or be killed

Season 1 | Episode 12 | “The Wolves of Deep Brooklyn” | Aired Jan 6, 2015

All right, Forever fans, we’re back! Did you miss Henry Morgan? If you did, you’re not alone. Jo and Lucas were missing him, too. A lot.

In the aftermath of being manipulated by “Adam” and killing a man, Henry needs to take some time away from crime solving. Jo is forced to work with a different (and significantly less competent) medical examiner who is even ruder to Lucas than Henry typically is. Henry, meanwhile, is at home busying himself the way any person would after killing another human being—by performing autopsies on dead rats and trying to piece together their final moments. It looks like he might stay in hiding forever (literally), until Abe receives a phone call from an old Army buddy saying that his son is dead.Read More

'Forever' winter finale recap: The secret's out!

Season 1 | Episode 11 | “Skinny Dipper” | Aired Dec 9, 2014

Wowza! Forever‘s winter finale felt like a glorious payoff for our months of loyalty. The show has had its ups and downs in this first half a season—and some of the show’s biggest flaws were on display in this episode—but regardless, “Skinny Dipper” was an incredibly satisfying way to go into the holiday break. It asked more questions than it answered, but luckily we have (at least) another 11 episodes to go!Read More

'Forever' winter finale: Lorraine Toussaint teases 'lovely cliffhanger'

In the last episode of ABC’s Forever, medical examiner Henry Morgan gets into a cab to go home, but discovers he is actually being kidnapped by his anonymous, immortal stalker, “Adam.” Even worse, Adam might frame Henry for murder. How will that play out at the NYPD?

To find out, EW Community went straight to the top and asked Lorraine Toussaint (Orange Is the New Black), who, as Lt. Joanne Reece, oversees Henry’s work with the police department.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY COMMUNITY: It’s been a really good year to be your fan. After Orange Is the New Black, we didn’t have to wait too long before getting you back on our TVs on Forever. Which side of the law have you been having more fun playing?Read More

'Forever' recap: The past always catches up

Season 1 | Episode 10 | “The Man in the Killer Suit” | Aired Dec 2, 2014

If you’ve been reading these recaps all season, you know that several questions keep coming up for me as I watch Forever. How is it that Henry’s failure to age has gone unnoticed for 200 years? Is it really possible that nobody has ever seen Henry “die”? In “The Man in the Killer Suit” we delve more deeply—via flashback—into these issues. Henry has worried about people noticing that he is always 35. There was a time when he would carefully add gray to his hair to give the impression of aging. After being in the same place for seven years, Henry recognized that people would start to get suspicious.

Around that same time, a man recognized Henry from their time serving together during World War II. The man had seen Henry get struck by a shell. Seeing Henry walking through Central Park alive and well, without even a scratch, made little sense. Being recognized sent Henry and Abigail into a flutter to get their stuff packed so they could disappear. This meant forcing 10-year-old Abe to move, even though he had just met a girl and had his first kiss.Read More
