‘The Newsroom’ season 3 spoilers: Official details on series finale, more

While our full review of Sunday night’s new episode of “The Newsroom” is still forthcoming, we do at least have some other news to discuss right now on another very-important subject: Some of what lies ahead for the final two episodes of the season.

Today, HBO put out in an official press release some details of what will be happening come the end of the series, and we of course have to preface this by saying that there are of course SPOILERS ahead. Not major ones, but minor enough scoop that may make you want to turn away if you want to go into the rest of the season completely surprised about every finer detail.

Episode 3×05, “Oh Shenandoah” (December 7) – “Incarcerated for contempt, Will (Jeff Daniels) refuses to reveal the name of Neal’s (Dev Patel) government source. Appearing to embrace Pruit’s (B.J. Novak) mandate to capture younger viewers, Charlie (Sam Waterston) orders a reluctant Don (Thomas Sadoski) to track down principals in a sexual-abuse case at an elite college. Sloan (Olivia Munn) voices her objection to a new digital site built by Neal’s replacement, Bree (Jon Bass). Stranded in a Moscow airport, Jim (John Gallagher, Jr.) and Maggie (Alison Pill) look to land seats for a Cuban-bound plane, hoping to interview one of its high-profile passengers.”

Episode 3×06, “What Kind of Day Has It Been” (December 14, series finale) – “A sudden death leads Will and Mac (Emily Mortimer) to ponder the milestones that transformed the newsroom, and look ahead towards ACN’s uncertain future. Maggie lands a field-producer interview in Washington; Neal’s digital site is shut down for repairs; Leona (Jane Fonda) offers sage advice to Pruit.”

There’s obviously some big stuff in there, and the thing that you may be worrying about right now is the sudden death in the finale. It seems wrong to really speculate about it, but it does at least seem interesting.

If nothing else, though, it looks that the show is going to be going full-tilt straight to the end of it, and we would not have things any other way.
