What do we know about the Authority? They're ancient. They're powerful. They're diverse. They perform blood rituals in Aramaic. And one of them was a cast member on Law and Order: SVU. Find out secrets of the Authority in this cast and crew video:
In other news, Sherriff Andy and Jason continue their buddy cop routine, much to the delight of the WSJ's Speakeasy blog. MTV picks Emma's transformation into adorable pajama-clad baby wolf as a Top 5 Key Moment, one that episode writer Mark Hudis says in the Inside the Episode video the show couldn't help but play for laughs.
