The Americans' Shocking Season 2 Premiere Deaths, Arrow's Intense Reunion and More OMG TV Moments

Spoiler alert! We're about to dig into the biggest, most jaw-dropping moments from Wednesday night's TV. If you haven't yet watched a particular show, and don't want to be spoiled, skip to the next!
Arrow: It was the reunion fans have been waiting a very long time for and man, did it not disappoint. Oliver finally learned that Slade was 1. Alive. 2. Big badding it up in Starling City and 3. Becoming BFFs with Moira, his mother, on tonight's episode of the CW hit. Oh, how we can't wait to see these comrades-turned-enemies finally go at it. 
Oh, and Oliver said this to Felicity, who was jealous over his, um, bonding, with Sara: "Hey. You will always be my girl, Felicity." 
The Americans: Welcome back to the '80s, fellow spies, would you like some shocking deaths to go with your many wigs? 
RIP, Emmett and Leanne Connors, as well as their teen daughter. (Their son managed to survive, though he's probably scarred from life after walking into a room to find his entire family dead.) Yes, Elizabeth and Philip's fellow spies were brutally murdered in the FX hit's return, reiterating just how much danger they, as well as their children, are in.
Speaking of their children, Paige is becoming suspicious of her secretive parents, but she hit pause on her digging into their activities after walking in on them having sex. (A totally different kind of scarring for a teenager.)
Law & Order: SVU#RapelsNoJoke indeed. Could Benson be ready to end her relationship with Cassidy? It certainly looks to be the case after Benson ignored her boyfriend's call when she learned that he found a comedian's (who turned out to be a rapist, by the way) rape jokes to be funny. Um, what?! Feel free to ignore Cassidy's calls until the end of time, Benson. 
Suburgatory: How awesome was it to see Parenthood standout Mae Whitman guest star on the ABC hit sitcom opposite Jane Levy, one of her real-life besties? Whitman got to show off her comedic chops as Caris (aka Charisma!), the leader of a hippie band Tessa joins, only to learn it's basically a cult. Promises of murder included! (Anyone else kind of sort of totaly want to be Whitman's BFF?)
Line of the Night: "Your momma's musty." Hee. Oh, you had to watch Psych to truly appreciate the simplicity of this joke from Gus.
