Greek came back into our living rooms to kick off season two just a couple months back and, as far as I’m concerned, has been killing it week after week. Showing no signs of a sophomore slump, the series is at its best and I can’t believe it’s already time for another break. In the world of CRU, Summer is upon us, and this Tuesday, we’ll bid farewell to our favorite frat boys and sorority gals in a mid-season finale that changes a lot… it’s Hell Week, bitches, and there are gold fish involved. Plus, LC’s giving shiny hair tips!
So you’ll know what to expect, I’m answering a few of your Greek questions below…
But before we get to that, a shout out to the cast, who’ve kept quite busy during their break from shooting. Clark Duke, better known to us as Rusty’s Christian conservative roommate Dale, is starring in the comedy Sex Drive, which opens in theaters today. Derek Mio, aka adorable Kappa Tau bro Wade, finished a short World War II film called The Forest Demon (peep the trailer). And the series regulars — pretty much all of ‘em: Spencer, Scott, Jacob, Amber, Dilshad, Jake, Paul and Tiffany — have been on the campaign trail, doing a nationwide college tour with Declare Yourself, inspiring potential voters to get registered.
Okay, on to your queries…
Hi Korbi, Cappie’s speech to Rusty and Calvin about soulmates in the last episode really made me think of him and Casey and made me really miss that chemistry they had together. Is there anything coming up for them at all? -Christa
There is, indeed. There are a couple of really intense Casey-Cappie scenes in Tuesday’s finale… scenes in which their chemistry is palpable.
Depends what you deem as “development.” If you’re waiting for him to stick her with his, um, KT pledge pin, you’re going to have to be patient. But if you’re cool with watching their friendship slowly grow and build into something more, you’ll have stuff to smile about this week.
Korbi, let’s talk Greek! Can you give me some Max-Casey scoop? He’s such a cute boyfriend to her. -Kaitlyn
Max just got into grad school at Cal Tech… which is two thousand plus miles from the CRU campus, so yeah, not cool as far as their relationship is concerned. Still, I hear the producers really like Michael Rady and Max really likes Casey, so I think we’ll be seeing more of him next year.
I can’t believe Rebecca got Ashley voted president on Greek!! What a twist! Honestly, I think it was a good move. You? -Priti
I’d have to agree. Frannie and Casey’s election feud was out of control and, as it turns out, Ashley is a really good prez. Seems F & C will be spending a lot less time worrying about ZBZ now that they’re not in charge and Ash is filling in the blanks for both of them quite effectively.
Finally, a good storyline for Amber Stevens on Greek! Ashley is the hot unsung sister hero. So, Casey’s going to hate her now that she’s president, right? -Jac
Actually, if there’s tension brewing between the two, we won’t see it till next year. The finale previews were a bit misleading. Casey seems to be taking Ashley’s presidency in a stride so far. But, as I mentioned a couple weeks back, Frannie… not so much.
There’s even more career upheaval on tonight’s Brothers & Sisters, as Rebecca takes on a new job and Kevin receives an interesting offer from Robert.
Nora (Sally Field) must have a lot of time on her hands these days, because she wants to start up a non-profit, with the nerve center located in the Walker house. Furniture from the office will have to be moved into the garage to make room, which means it’s time for a good old-fashioned garage sale. While Nora makes plans to rake in some dough, Holly has the temp agency call Rebecca to work for a few days at Ojai. Rebecca (Emily VanCamp) isn’t thrilled that her mother ordered her like an entree off a menu, but Holly wants quality time with her daughter….READ FULL RECAp
Pushing Daisies has extended David Arquette’s forthcoming stint as “freshcort” Randy Mann. Arquette, who debuts in next Wednesday’s episode, will return later this season “to have a nice little romance with Kristin Chenoweth,” reveals series creator Bryan Fuller. (BTW, a big shout-out to the half million of you who jumped on the Daises bandwagon last night. Much appreciated!) — Ausiello Files
From Ace Showbiz:
“America’s Next Top Model” next week episode will be surprising. With the title “Now You See Me, Now You Don’t”, the ladies pull a disappearing act for this week’s challenge. Based on the clip, it can be seen that there is a person who shows up with a full dress and covered by green fabric. This kind of stimulation has the function to show the models a wonderful breakthrough for making a different appearance on television. The green fabric will only make visible the dress but not the models.
Next week in “Top Model” tradition, seven remaining girls (Marjorie, Sheena, Elina, Samantha, Analeigh, Joslyn, and McKey) test their on-camera talents when they shoot their “CoverGirl” commercial with the help of cycle 10 winner, Whitney Thompson. During judging, Tyra Banks will reveal this cycle’s overseas destination and one model will be sent home.
“Now You See Me, Now You Don’t” episode will air on The CW network, Wednesday, October 22, at 8/7c.
The women of Desperate Housewives are a bunch of jealous ladies. Bree’s book is released, and her big, fancy publicity blitz has her friends in a tizzy. Not helping matters is the fact that Bree is named Businesswoman of the Year and writes the same inscriptions in all of their copies of the cookbook.
Jealousy is the theme of the whole episode of Desperate Housewives. The women are jealous of Bree’s perfect life, Mike is jealous of the new man in Susan’s life, and Orson is jealous of his important wife. Underneath the seemingly happy lives of suburbia, everyone wants to keep up with the Joneses because the grass is always greener on the other side….READ FULL RECAP

After two successful seasons, the cast of ABC family’s Lincoln Heights has matured together to find their stride in the show’s third season, which premiered on September 16. With the family dynamic changing within the Sutton family as Sage moves in and love looms with Charles, the rest of the family will need to adapt in their own unique ways. With season three of Lincoln Heights now in full swing in ABC Family’s Monday night schedule, we had the good fortune to spend a few minutes with Lincoln Heights executive producer Kathleen McGhee-Anderson to learn more about the Sutton family dynamic, how some characters will handle new changes, and how things will shake down with the Suttons in school.
THE DEADBOLT: Where did the idea of the show come from?
KATHLEEN MCGHEE-ANDERSON: The idea came from another writer who approached ABC Family with this amazing idea and they went with the idea and the development of a pilot script and from there they produced the pilot script and it became an actual one hour that made the execs at ABC Family cry and his name is Seth Freeman. And so they picked the show up and it was slated to be the dramatic series Lincoln Heights. Prior to the production of the show, he was replaced by me and I came in and developed the scripts for the show and took the show over from that conception phase from the pilot on.
THE DEADBOLT: How involved were you in the casting process?
ANDERSON: Not at all, I got this wonderful gift handed to me. The original idea and the pilot had been made. It had been shot in San Diego with the terrific director, Kevin Hooks, that brought Seth’s vision to life. And so when I stepped in they were struggling because they didn’t have any scripts ready and they were about to shoot within two weeks. So I got this wonderful jumping off point with amazing actors and this premise that was so full of material that I hadn’t seen explored before. Like I said, [I had] been given the best creative opportunity I could ask for actually.
THE DEADBOLT: Is the series open-ended or do you have an end-date in mind?
ANDERSON: It’s open-ended, totally. I mean, the premise of the series is about whether or not this family is going to be able to survive in this neighborhood and whether they can really raise the family safely and make Lincoln Heights a better place at the same time. And so the show is ultimately about fitting in and belonging and it’s about this neighborhood and I think that anything goes. We’re really totally opened to the ups and downs about that journey for them. But I think ultimately we know they will remain in Lincoln Heights.
THE DEADBOLT: With Sage moving in, how will that change the Sutton family dynamic?
ANDERSON: Well, drama is based on conflict and so everybody has a different reaction to Sage in the family. Cassie, of course, her relationship with Sage is predicated even more so in her relationship with Charles. And Sage is in love with Charles. She’s a girl who’s pretty much raised herself, her fathers in Lincoln Heights; her mothers in San Francisco; Sage needs a family; she’s from a broken home. So Sage is quite happy to be with the Sutton family. Cassie, of course, is going to be stressed by it. Lizzie, of course, is the sibling that makes the best of every situation and Tay is a little bit impressed by Sage.
So everybody has a different reaction. Of course, Jen, is the ultimate mother and she wants to help this little bird with the broken wing and Eddie is the ultimate protector and of course he’s very loyal to his friend and would do anything to help Lund get through this difficult period. So they’re going to be tested by Sage’s presence and, at the same time, I think that test is also going to bring the family together stronger. And she’s going to be living in that mysterious room at the top of steps, but at least it gives us a lot of opportunity to explore some different story lines.
THE DEADBOLT: How are you going to handle Cassie’s pregnancy?
ANDERSON: Well, I can’t give that away. Let’s just say, it will be unique. Yes, and she’s not pregnant now. We don’t know if she’s pregnant. We haven’t given that away either. She had the scare as you know last night. But she’s not pregnant.
THE DEADBOLT: Will there be more story lines involving the Suttons’ classmates?
ANDERSON: Yes. You know we have a new family in town. We have the family of the new minister, they’ve moved from Chicago. And they were introduced in our second episode and the Kingston family has moved and it’s the classmate for Tay.
And a classmate for Cassie, and Tay’s classmate gets a crush on Lizzie. So all of the new Kingston family really does interact with the Sutton family. And in fact, as you know, Mrs. Kingston is now working at the clinic. She’s helping revamp the clinic that Jen works at. So Mrs. Kingston’s also interacting with the Sutton family. And then Reverend Kingston has big plans for changing Lincoln Heights and who with the dad, Russell, Eddie, having been raised in Lincoln Heights, of course, he’s got strong feelings and some high stakes about which direction Lincoln Heights moves in. So this new family, this new Kingston family has a lot to do with the way that this next season is going to shape up.
THE DEADBOLT: I talked to Russell about a month ago and he couldn’t give me a lot of info on what’s going to happen with Eddie’s father now that we know that Ruben killed his mother. Can you fill us in on anything else?
ANDERSON: Well, you know the dad? His father’s in rehab right now. Last season his father was having some issues with his drinking and that’s because he had so many issues that had not been dealt with in terms of the murder of his wife, Eddie’s mother. So now he’s in rehab and we don’t see too much of his father this season, because his father is dealing with that very personal problem and we’re concentrating on what’s going on in the Sutton household right now. We’ll see more of his father, but probably not until another season or so.
