The season finale of The Expanse (Syfy, Tuesday, 10/9C) is thrilling, scary and just a wee bit convoluted – pretty much like the rest of season one. It ramps up the danger while answering some big questions and setting some very big wheels in motion.

Then it ends on a cliffhanger of epic proportions…

Now that all that nasty exposition and character introduction has been done, The Magicians (Syfy, Mondays, 9/8C) moves forward with some major developments – most of which are, to say the least, troublesome.

Dean Fogg (Rick Worthy) is back – with glass eyes, and experimenting with styles of dark glasses (one pair calls to mind ‘the blues… and pinks’). After three months of study and practice, it’s time for the new students to learn their disciplines.

When 12 Monkeys in April, Cole and Cassie will be reunited – in the ’40s!

Apparently the Army of the 12 Monkeys is using time against itself so Cole and Cassie have to figure that out back then. Whatever the time, though, Jennifer remains an ass.

12 Monkeys returns on April 18. Check out the twisty new trailer after the jump.

The Expanse (Syfy, Tuesdays, 10/9C) has been carefully weaving together a series of plotlines involving political leaders on Earth, the survivors of an ice mining ship called the Canterbury and a cop who’d been given the task of finding the heir to an Earther billionaire who’d gone missing.

Along the way, the events lurking behind these plotlines had made for a cold-war-heating-up scenario between Earth, Mars and the people of asteroid belt. Now, however, things are coming together – not necessarily in a good way.

Syfy’s The Magicians (Mondays, 9/8C) is adapted from the bestselling trilogy by Lev Grossman. It follows Quentin Coldwater and his best friend Julia as they discover that magic exists and while one is accepted into a hidden magic school and the other is not.

Essentially, series creators Sera Gamble and John McNamara are approaching the series as dealing with magic in our real world, right now, in New York City. It doesn’t take long for the series to get to the magic, but it’s the characters who will make it work.

Syfy’s The Magicians (Mondays, 9/8C) is a series that looks at what it might be like to have real magic in a real place (New York City) right now – from the point of view of Quentin Coldwater, a graduate student who kind drifts onto the quad at Breakbills College for Magical Pedagogy, and his best friend, Julia. Created by Sera Gamble (Supernatural) and John McNamara (Vengeance Unlimited, Aquarius), The Magicians is adapted from the bestselling novels by Lev Grossman.

Last week, Gamble and series star Jason Ralph spoke with a group of bloggers/journalists about the series – how it hews closely to the book; how it differs, and what author Lev Grossman’s involvement is.
