I heard there is going to be a death on Supernatural, which would be very, very sad! Can you shed some light on that? MATT: Well, one of the big rumors is that our boy Bobby will be the one to buy it. I broached that prickly topic with cast member Jim Beaver himself, and while he would/could not refute it, he noted, “Nobody takes Bobby down easy!” He then teased the “intense and astonishing” May 14 season finale thusly: “People are going to have some of their expectations toppled.” (Much more from the Beav on Thursday.)

TV Guide’s Interview with Supernatural’s Jim Beaver
Source: TV Guide Online
TVGuide.com: Turning to Supernatural, I understand an intervention of sorts is coming for Sam….
Beaver: Bobby and Dean will get together to plot out a way to save Sam from himself. Now that he’s got this demon blood addiction, that’s very troubling to them. But then again, Dean and Bobby don’t completely agree on how to handle it, and things get heated between them as well.
TVGuide.com: What’s Bobby’s take on the brothers’ growing rift?
Beaver: I think he shares Dean’s concerns about Sam, but Bobby’s always had a pretty good insight into Dean as well, about how much guilt Dean carries for not living up to what he thinks his father would have done. You’re going to see Bobby try to help Dean with that, even in the midst of trying to resolve things with Sam.
TVGuide.com: Has this proven to be some of the more interesting work you’ve done on the show?
Beaver: Yeah! They keep giving me great fun stuff to do, and there are some luscious scenes coming up – really strong stuff between me and Jensen [Ackles] in particular. The fans are going to get satisfaction, pretty strongly, from these last few episodes.
TVGuide.com: But to balance out that good, there is buzz that Bobby might meet his maker by season’s end. Do you have any words of reassurance for your fans?Beaver: Hmmm… Words of reassurance… Boy, I wish I had some!
TVGuide.com: Maybe, “If Bobby goes down, it won’t be without a fight”?
Beaver: Well, nobody takes Bobby down easy!
TVGuide.com: What three words would you use to describe the season finale?
Beaver: Intense … astonishing … and intense again. People are going to have some of their expectations toppled.

LP) Ending with some Supernatural questions; what can you tell us about Bobby’s role for the remainder of the season?
JB) Bobby’s in the last three episodes of the season and I’m most prominent in the next-to-last episode. Three fourths of the scenes probably take place in Bobby’s house so, I’m heavily involved in that one. And I’m… briefly involved in the finale. I mean, not terribly briefly but… anyway. I’m in it – which, I’m happy about because I’ve done the season finale of every season so it’s kind of a tradition.
LP) What does season five [of “Supernatural”] hold in store for Bobby Singer? [addressing speculation that Jim’s character may not live past the season 4 finale]
JB) I… don’t… think I can say. [coyly] Gosh I don’t know what to say. I’d love to help ya out, but… I’m not sure what I could say that would be both truthful and helpful.
LP) No comment?
JB) That’s… probably the best thing I could say.
LP) Any other “Supernatural” spoilers you can drop for us?
JB) Let’s just say that the conflict between Sam and Dean comes to a real head, and over the course of those three episodes it really comes to its boiling point and beyond. By the next-to-last episode and the last one, it’s bubbling over and things change. The next-to-last episode is mainly Bobby and Dean trying to confront the differences between Dean and Sam and so, there’s a lot of Bobby and Dean on one side and Sam on the other.Celebrity Cafe
Supernatural: Episode Titles for the End of Season 4
Supernatural is heading into the home stretch of season 4. With only five episodes left, every minute counts as Sam and Dean Winchester race to stop Lilith from breaking the remaining 66 Seals and bringing Lucifer to Earth.
Unfortunately, fans may not get to see these final episodes uninterrupted. Early, unconfirmed reports suggest that more breaks are scheduled, and the scheduling of these final episodes might leave fans hanging for longer than they’d like. There are also recently released episode titles for all the remaining episodes, though they might give away more than you’d like.
SPOILER WARNING: Read no further if you don’t want to know what the final Supernatural episodes are called.
This Thursday brings the highly meta “The Monster at the End of This Book,” in which Sam and Dean discover a book series called Supernatural about themselves. That paradox will leave fans scratching their heads for three weeks, because Supernatural is taking yet another break.
The next batch of episodes return April 23 with “Jump the Shark,” and based on that title, fans could be in for a third straight “funny” episode. However, that paves the way for the final three very serious-sounding episodes.
April 30 brings “The Rapture.” This religious title certainly suggests that the angels will play a key role as Dean nears his ultimate destiny.
The penultimate episode of the season airs on May 7 and is called “When the Levees Break.” That bodes poorly for the Winchesters as it portends plenty of bad things ahead.
According to a blog post on Saving Faith’s Sandbox, the next week will be excruciating for Supernatural fans as the show will take yet another break on May 14. It’s not until the next week, May 21, that the Supernatural season 4 finale will air.
But it’s a big one, because the episode is called “Lucifer Rising.” Aside from being a brilliant companion title to the season premiere, “Lazarus Rising,” this episode promises to deliver what the whole season has been leading up to. Will Lucifer rise? Given this show’s history with season finales, I’d have to bet ‘Yes.”
Based on absolutely nothing but my own wild speculation, here’s my current theory: in the final moments of the season, Lucifer rises after the final Seal is broken. However, in order to walk the Earth, Lucifer must take a human body just like all the other demons. What body does he choose? Wile Sam might be the obvious guess, I’m leaning towards the even cooler possibility that Lucifer will take the form of John Winchester. I know the evil father is a bit of a cliche, but it could still be undeniable cool.
Do you think Lucifer will walk the Earth? And if so, whose body will he possess?
ANOTHER WINCHESTER BROTHER EMERGES — A 19-year-old boy named Adam (guest star Jake Abel) calls Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) looking for John Winchester, claiming to be his son. Dean and Sam meet Adam, assuming he’s a demon trying to lure then into a trap. However, they find out that John was indeed the boy’s father and Adam tells them of his “normal” upbringing, which infuriates Dean. Phil Sgriccia directed the episode written by Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin.

A clip is released for the April 23 episode of “Supernatural“. Adam, a 19-year-old boy who calls Dean and Sam to look for John Winchester, is at a diner with the brothers, recalling his childhood experience with John. Dean is suspicious of him but soon draws the gun underneath the table. Adam, who is played by Jake Abel, claims that he is the son of John with a nurse. Dean and Sam agree to meet him with the assumption that he is a demon trying to lure them into a trap. When they found out that Adam is really part of their family, Dean is infuriated by the fact that Adam was raised “normally”.
The episode is called “Jump the Shark” and reportedly, there will be a tribute to the late Kim Manners which can only be spotted by an eagle-eye viewer.

Next on “Supernatural“, Dean and Bobby lock Sam in Bobby’s panic room so he can detox from the demon’s blood. Writer-producer Ben Edlund explained the addiction to E!, “The model of an addict bottoming out and becoming basically something else, almost a creature of reflex, is one of the things he’s going to have to face. And that’s going to make trouble for Dean and Sam-they don’t agree on this particular issue. Dean’s not happy about it.” However, as Bobby sees more seals are being broken he tells Dean they should let Sam out to help them fight the impending apocalypse. Dean disagrees and goes to Castiel for help. Sam and Dean have a big blowout confrontation. Called “When the Levee Breaks”, the episode airs May 7.

90210: Tori Spelling on a Possible Donna-Brenda Reunion!
Source: TV Guide Online
Tori Spelling‘s return to 90210 (Tuesdays, 9 pm/ET, CW) gave the fledgling teen drama a nice uptick in the ratings. But it also gave the fans an unexpected epilogue to the romantic storyline of Donna and David: They live in Japan, have a baby girl, Ruby, and — gasp! — they’re separated! In this Tuesday’s episode, Spelling returns to paint the town red with Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth), but wait until you see where they end up! Spelling tells us how she and the producers devised the storyline, what her late father would think of the new series, and whether we’ll see a Brenda-Kelly-Donna reunion in future episodes.
TVGuide.com: So when the producers contacted you, did they present you with a story idea? Did you present it to them? Or was it collaborative?
Tori Spelling: It was completely collaborative. They had ideas. We kind of swapped back and forth. I told them it was important to me that Donna was still in fashion. Last we left her, she had a boutique, and now where is she? Has she gone further in her career? They had an idea for her to be in Europe, like London, being a fashion designer. I was like, “That’s cool, but what if we mix it up a bit and make it Japan?” So they said, “Great.”
TVGuide.com: How did you learn the Japanese in the script?
Spelling: I studied it, and there was someone on the set who was fluent who helped me do it justice. At one point, I was, like, they suggested London and I had to say, “Oh, let’s do Japan,” and now I’m paying for it by having to speak in Japanese — ha-ha.
TVGuide.com: How did you feel about the news that Donna and David are separated?
Spelling: It was scary at first, but I was actually open to it, just because everything’s always neatly tied up in movies, and that’s not the way life is. They’re not divorced; they’re simply separated, so there’s always hope. I didn’t want to devastate the fans. But there was an interesting storyline there. What happens when high school sweethearts get married very young, and they’ve been together and have only known each other and then all of a sudden their careers take off? Donna has been working, and they have kids, and sometimes your lives go in different directions. That was interesting to me.
TVGuide.com: Anyone in particular from the old cast that you’d like to see come back? Or that you’d like to work with again?
Spelling: I can only go by my storyline, and I know that the fans were shocked that Donna and David are separated, so whether or not that pans out, I’m sure they would like to see David [Brian Austin Green] come back and have them resolve it.
TVGuide.com: Have you spoken to Brian about coming back?
Spelling: I have not, no.
TVGuide.com: Tell me about working with the new cast. The ones I’ve spoken with were all very excited to have “the alums” come back.
Spelling: It was great. I didn’t have much to do with the whole cast. But they were all really nice, and they all seem to get along, which I was like, “Yay, that’s awesome.” It’s hard to have a group of young, beautiful people all together and not have some drama. It was a really positive experience.
TVGuide.com: How do you think the new 90210 is different?
Spelling: I knew that for it to work you couldn’t compare the two; it had to be its own show, with just a few fallbacks to the old show, which would be us. And I think they’ve done a good job of balancing that. … I think it’s definitely progressed with what’s going on with teens presently. It’s completely reflective. It’s definitely a little more daring and a little more risqué, but that’s pretty keeping in tune with how teens are nowadays.
TVGuide.com: What do you think your dad would think of the new 90210?
Spelling: I think he’d be really proud. He always hoped to do a remake. He always said, “I want to do 90210: The Next Generation.” So right now, he’s like: “Cool. Mission accomplished.”
TVGuide.com: I’ve heard that Tuesday’s episode is pretty funny. Tell me about it.
Spelling: It’s true Kelly-Donna high-jinks, getting themselves in trouble again. They’re mistaken for a gay couple. They’re like, “Hey, we don’t go out any more. Where’s the cool place?” And someone mistakenly sends them to a gay bar. It’s pretty funny.
TVGuide.com: Any idea when you’ll be back on the show?
Spelling: Not currently, but I’m excited to return. We left the storyline open, and I would love to explore what’s going on in Donna’s life more. I would love to come back next season.
TVGuide.com: Any chance we’ll see a Brenda-Kelly-Donna reunion in our future?
Spelling: I think the fans would love it, so I hope there will be.

Preview of ‘House M.D.’ 5th Season Finale: Both Sides Now
House recalls his sex with Cuddy while taking care of a patient’s hand which acts on its own will, on the May 11 episode of ‘House M.D.’ Source: Ace Showbiz TV News “You will definitely be talking about this ending,” FOX said on its promo for “House M.D.” season finale. On May 11, House and the team are intrigued by Scott (guest star Ashton Holmes), a man whose left brain and right brain operate independently, leaving him with two distinct personalities and no control over some of his actions. As the two sides of Scott’s brain struggle for dominance, his warring personalities make it increasingly difficult for the team to figure out what is causing the unique problem. The team is forced to use some unusual methods to get him to cooperate with their necessary testing. Meanwhile, when House refuses to make an appearance in the clinic, Cuddy takes an unconventional approach to force House to make up the time with a very particular patient (guest star Carl Reiner). After the talked-about sex scene between House and Cuddy, there will still be more into their complicated relationship. Lisa Edelstein who plays Cuddy gave a nod in a press conference over the weekend on the question whether the relationship will change in the finale. There will be a House and Cuddy sex scene in the next new episode of House, on Monday, May 4. (Watch With Kristin) In Monday’s episode, House suspects his drug habit is fueling his Amber hallucinations, so he decides to quit Vicodin cold turkey. Cuddy comes to his apartment to personally empty out his medicine cabinet, a struggle ensues, and, before you know it, they’re both on the bathroom floor and . . . well. (Michael Ausiello)

House Preview: Things Are Gonna Get “Pretty Hot”
Source: TV Guide Online “Cuddy has a complicated relationship with men, it seems,” says Edelstein. “She likes the screwed-up ones!” Coming up this week on Fox’s House (Mondays, 8 pm/ET), at least one sect of ‘shippers will have their wildest dream come true when Dr. Crankpot and Cuddy (presumably) leave their animus on the nightstand in the name of getting horizontal. “It’s a pretty hot scene,” Lisa Edelstein, who plays Cuddy, tells TVGuide.com. When we asked the actress if the characters’ coupling was “good” and thus worth the long (long) wait, she answered: “Uh, apparently!” Edelstein also shared during a Friday press conference call that the sex (or is it love?) scene took at least five takes, because “the cameras wanted to capture a lot of different things.” But that was fine by her and longtime pal Hugh Laurie. “I have a great friendship with Hugh,” she said, “and he’s super-sexy — so who could complain about kissing him?” But to paraphrase Sam the piano player: Is a romp just a romp? Will Cuddy and House’s physical encounter lay the groundwork for emotional intimacy as well? “I don’t think it’s a passing thing. It’s been going on a long time, whether or not they’ve acted on it,” said Edelstein. But… “I don’t necessarily think it will be a satisfying relationship in terms of both of them settling in and saying, ‘This is what you’re doing.’” Then again, the increasingly hallucinatory Dr. House could — could — just be imagining the whole she-bang. Allows Edelstein, “There’s a chance for anything, isn’t there?”

Source: Ace Showbiz TV News House and Cuddy have some quality time in favor of their romance, that possibly leads to the talked-about sex, in ‘House M.D.’ episode ‘Under My Skin’. This could be the beginning of the anticipated House-Cuddy sex at the end of the season finale. The May 4 preview of “House M.D.” reveals a kiss between the two with Cuddy asking “You want to kiss me, don’t you?” and House answering “I always want to kiss you”. Meanwhile, House and the team take on the case of a ballerina (guest star Jamie Tisdale) whose lungs collapse in the middle of a performance. When the treatment causes her skin to fall off, the dancer faces not only the prospect of never dancing again but also of dying an agonizing death. The team must use their imaginations to carefully choreograph ways to test and treat her delicate body without killing her. House continues to suffer from a severe lack of sleep and is still haunted by Amber (guest star Anne Dudek). While enlisting Wilson’s help to diagnose himself, he is willing to do the unthinkable to make his visions stop. Earlier this month, exec producers Katie Jacobs and David Shore confirmed to EW that there will be a Huddy sex “by the end of the season”.

House‘s Lisa Edelstein Kisses and Tells
Source: Kristin on E!Online
The time has finally arrived. It’s been built up for seasons on end, talked about ad nauseum and debated to death. Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) and Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) are finally going to do the nasty. But is it all the promos crack it up to be? We caught up with the better half of Huddy to get the details on what’s to come, what it means and where it’s going. You might just be surprised at her answer to the question on everyone’s mind: Will it just be one big fat hallucination, or are Huddy really hooking up?
How was the new kissing scene with Hugh Laurie? It was great. I wouldn’t complain. I have a great friendship with Hugh, and he’s supersexy, so who could complain about kissing him?
We know that House and Cuddy have sex soon. So tell us, was the sex good? [Laughs] Apparently! You’re not gonna see me get naked or anything, but it was a pretty hot scene.
Are Cuddy and House more than a passing comfort to each other? I don’t think it’s a passing thing. It’s been going on for a long time whether or not they’ve acted out on it. I don’t necessarily think it will ever be a satisfying relationship in terms of both of them kind of settling in and saying this is what we’re doing. But she has a complicated relationship with men it seems. She likes the screwed up ones. I totally relate. It’s a beautiful, complicated adult relationship between those two characters. Neither person is one thing or another. They’re dynamic individuals.
Is there a chance that there is a twist that the Huddy hookup is some sort of dream or hallucination? Well, I mean, there’s a chance for anything isn’t there?
What will sex do to their relationship? You’ll have to find out.
Will we find out how the relationship changes in the finale? Yes.
Can you tell us more about the backstory of when House and Cuddy first met and how they became so close? Initially, he was kind of legendary in the school she was an undergraduate in. And she, I think, was maybe even a little obsessed with him, and she ended up auditing a class that she knew he would be in. I think he was doing a brushup class, and she audited it to check him out because he was exactly the kind of lunatic she likes. I related to her taste in men. I definitely don’t have the best taste in men. I don’t know that intelligence and taste necessarily go hand in hand. I think what we’re attracted to in finding a partner is usually something that resolves some complicated piece of our past. And for Cuddy it’s House, and it always has been.
How does the staff react to Huddy getting together? I think that the rest of the staff is pretty much waiting for them to get together. I don’t think it’s a secret. Sometimes when people have chemistry with each other, it’s just so obvious. It’s not like he doesn’t talk about it. He’s constantly referring to her body and teasing her in front of everybody else. It’s like schoolyard banter. He might as well be chasing her and pulling her braids.
Is there jealousy with Cameron? I don’t think Cameron feels jealous. Part of her sees the House-Cuddy relationship as the right thing, and maybe a part of her will always have that crush on House. Like we all carry a torch for somebody. But no, I think if anything, Cuddy worries about Cameron.
What was your favorite moment on the show so far? I loved the way they got House and Cuddy together. I loved that she was suffering so much and he was suffering so much and that’s what brought them together initially. I thought that was a beautiful moment of writing.
Any truth to the crazy rumor that you end up pregnant with his twins? [Laughs] Oh really? I haven’t the faintest idea. I have not heard anything to that affect. I don’t know that Cuddy should be wandering around the hospital carrying twins.
‘House’ The long awaited Huddy kiss
Source: Zap2it.com Recaps
Tonight’s episode of House rehashed story lines that were far more interesting during season 3, when Tritter was around to add some suspense to it all and force him to do what he didn’t really want to do.
Before I go into my rant, here’s the POTW: she’s a ballerina who gets dropped by her boyfriend (a male ballet dancer) who has a weak back and a shrill attitude.Then her lungs collapse and they inexplicably can’t get them back up again. However, they do manage to make 80% of her skin fall off, so there’s that. Also, they stop her heart for an MRI, which shows a shadow. Or an artifact on the monitor. In the end game, it’s gonorrhea on her heart – which is discovered by Taub, who also uses a long shot treatment to save her hands and feet from amputation. I know I usually give a bit more info about the POTW and how the case is solved…but honestly? This was a minor part of the show.
OK, I can wait no loner. My rant: is it me, or has this season just been weak sauce for the most part? Sure, there’s been some shinning moments, but overall? I’m feeling pretty disappointed, which hurts me to say as I have been a long time fan of House and have never missed an episode. I own all the DVD sets and a couple t-shirts as well. I’m not a moderate fan by any stretch. But tonight was…boring. It felt like the plot was phoned in 40 minutes into the episode. And it was a plot we’d already seen. The short of it is that House is hallucinating because he needs to detox from the Vicodin. Yet, even when he slips up and admits to Wilson that he’s hallucinating Amber – it’s barely a blip on the radar. Not even Wilson tries to analyze what that means or why House lied to him about it.
Rehab is the last thing House wants to try, really. In fact, he tests for infection, MS and severe mental illness before accepting it’s the drugs. The big dramatic gesture is sending himself into insulin shock – which was a treatment used mainly in the 1940′s – in order to determine if it really is psychosis. And Amber does disappear for a few hours, but that’s hardly a realistic lifestyle option. So, he concludes that it’s the Vicodin. I cannot ignore that in order for House to believe that his hallucination is caused by the drug, despite the lack of any other symptoms, he would also need to believe the convulsive therapies had a 100% success rate – or near enough to it. And there is no way that would happen.
House asks Wilson to make arrangements for him to go to rehab. However, partway through packing, he admits that he will cheat (as he did last time) and therefore decides not to go at all. Instead, he returns to the hospital, admits everything to Cuddy and asks her to help him detox. Which can apparently be accomplished overnight. Certainly, medical fallacy has been pointed on on the show before, but one night of sweating, spasming and vomiting does not get you clean enough from an opioid addiction to go back to work the next day.
Of course, he and Cuddy don’t actually go back to work. Yes, the moment millions of Huddy fans have been waiting for arrived: he totally pushed her against a wall and made out with her before end credits. And it was HOT. The implication – backed up by the previews for next week – is that they totally get it on. But given that I didn’t totally buy House’s decision to detox with just Cuddy helping him – with him revealing all his secret stashes and holding her hand all night – I have difficulty believing that they bonded so much over the night-o-detox that they can’t keep their hands off each other the next day. It just didn’t pack enough umph! for me.
The side story is Cameron’s revelation to Chase the she still has her dead husband’s forzen sperm. This plot line completely confuses me, because I don’t really understand what she wants. Chase says it’s a liquid pre-nup in case things don’t work out for them, but I am having difficulty wrapping my head around that. Because it makes no sense. She doesn’t want kids now but she wants his sperm in case she does want them later but they are divorced? How many men’s sperm does she need for her back up plan? There is also the idea that Chase would ask her to ditch the frozen sperm, which Foreman warns could make him worse than the guy that left her as it would make him the guy that killed her theoretical kids. But again, this makes no sense – why does it matter that she has sperm on ice if she isn’t planning on using it anytime soon, if at all?
In the end, Chase says he can’t do it, because he is sure that he wants to spend the rest of his life with her and he will wait for her to be sure too. Did I miss something? Can someone explain any of this to me? Are they not getting married now? And on Huddy – do you buy it? Would you rather Amber have been the result of mini strokes or brain tumors rather than his pill popping? Is anyone else as disappointed as me or are my expectations too high?
Week of April 27, 2009:
Question: Would you please do a House-only AA? Look, I’ll even get it started: What is this “important decision” that House “struggles” with? House isn’t crazy… so what would cause him, (if anything), to go into a psych ward? Ausiello: House-only AA? What a brilliant idea! And just to clarify, I never said House was for sure checking into a cuckoo’s nest. I was merely making an assumption after connecting a few dots. But if it turns out that he is headed to the funny farm, I would imagine an extreme case of insomnia might be behind it. And I do mean extreme: Poor guy hasn’t slept a wink since Kutner died.
Question: I haven’t been able to find any spoilers for tonight’s House. Do you know anything? Ausiello: I know the ep focuses on Chase’s bachelor party, but Fox’s promo already gave that away. What the promo didn’t reveal, however, is the identity of the person throwing the little shindig: House himself!
Question: Anything worth sharing on House? Ausiello: A major character will suffer a life-threatening medical emergency tonight. Hint: A clue about what triggers it can be found in last week’s 30 Rock. Guesses? Head to the comments!
Question: Is Chase’s bachelor party part of House’s hallucination? Ausiello: No. House also doesn’t imagine ordering Foreman and Thirteen to go to a strip club to pick out the evening’s, ahem, entertainment.
Question: I’m a little shocked to see Wilson at Chase’s bachelor party in this promo. How’d that happen? Ausiello: Let’s just say House arranged it so that he had no other choice. Source: The Ausiello Files
Question: How long ’til House starts banging his hallucination? Ausiello: Sit down, relax, and flash back to Jan. 26. It was on that day that I first broke news of the forthcoming plot involving Anne Dudek’s dead doc. It was also on that day that exec producer David Shore went on the record as saying, “It would never be a dead ghost sex love triangle thing like on [Grey's].” Fellow e.p. Katie Jacobs added: “I think that would make a large [number] of people switch off their TVs. I think if we tried that, heads would roll.” And that concludes our trip down memory lane. Source: The Ausiello Files
Question: A lot of Huddy fans fear that the House-Cuddy sex might not happen this season after all. Could you please reassure us? Ausiello: I’ll do you one better. For the first time, I will run the actual transcript of the interview we did with David Shore and Katie Jacobs at House‘s 100th episode party back on Jan. 21. If this doesn’t calm your nerves about the impending Huddy nookie-nookie, nothing will… EW: What’s the latest on House and Cuddy having sex? Katie: We have definitely figured how the act will play out. And true to vibe of the show and the characters and thanks to David Shore’s wonderfully creative twists and turns, it won’t be what you expect. We have to be careful about making moves like that. We do not want to disappoint fans and just do something out of left field.” David: Yes we have figured out the details surrounding Huddy having sex. There is a light at the end of the tunnel for fans of Huddy hoping for a hookup. It definitely won’t be what people expect. We have to do things our way, the House way. We wouldn’t want to have the characters do anything out of character. EW: Just to be clear, the sex will happen by the end of the season? David: Yes. Katie: Yes. Now that we’ve given you that scoop, you have to leave us alone on everything else! Source: The Ausiello Files
‘House’: Will Cameron & Chase actually walk down the wedding aisle?
Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV
So, last week we lost Kutner. And this week — if you haven’t seen last night’s episode of “House” you should stop reading now — Cameron and Chase got engaged. For a show that’s supposed to be about medical cases as opposed to the character’s personal lives, there sure is a lot of personal business going down at Princeton Plainsboro lately, no? But I actually like it. And I like how all this stuff is happening in the episodes leading up to the season finale instead of cramming every big reveal into one last hour. Maybe that’s just me. What do you think? Would you like to see Cameron and Chase actually tie the knot? Or do you think the producers put them in this position for the sole purpose of tearing them apart? And do you think this storyline will fold them back into “House”‘s main storylines for the remainder of the season? Or are you still unsatisfied?
‘House’ spoiler alert: ‘Chameron’ twist revealed!
Source: The Ausiello Files Warning: Stop reading if you haven’t seen last night’s House. Everyone else, onward and downward… As I’ve been teasing for much of the past week, Chase and Cameron broke up on tonight’s House. But as I’ve also been teasing for much of the past week, there was a humdinger of a twist that followed the duo’s split: They quickly got back together and engaged! I know what you’re thinking: Does this mean Jesse Spencer will make good on the promise he made earlier this year to up and quit should the day come when Cam and Chase march down the aisle? What?! You don’t recall him making such a threat? Allow me to copy and paste his exact quote again: “If there is [a very special Chase-Cam wedding episode], I’m out. I’ll walk. I’m freaking done. I think they are wary about getting into too much relationship stuff. It’s a procedural show at its core. That’s why people like it. That’s why I like to watch it.” Hmm… was Spencer just being his usual silly self or does he know something about where the Cam-Chase story is headed that we don’t? Interestingly, Spencer also went on to predict that due to “[exec producer] David Shore’s general disdain for life, you can rest assured that what we won’t be doing next season is getting happy. You won’t see Chase and Cameron making a home and having babies and other greeting card stuff.” Added Jennifer Morrison: “We’ve been happy for way too long for this show. Something is probably coming. I can’t imagine that some happy-go-lucky fairy tale is in store for Chameron. I think [David Shore] will probably find some very unique bizarre way to make us miserable.” Whatever happens next (bachelor party!), I would advise Chameron fans to enjoy their favorite couple’s pre-honeymoon honeymoon period while it lasts. I would also advise them to answer the following Qs in the comments section: Was the episode everything you hoped it would be and more? Do you think their engagement will lead to an actual wedding? Was Cameron being honest about her feelings (or lack thereof) for House?

Okay, so, I just saw a sneak peak for 221. And I thought I would share. I can’t upload it, I’m sorry. It’s no where to
The scene starts with Serena walking back into her room having just got home after her trip to Spain. There’s a guy who carries her luggage into the room and then leaves. Chuck appears at her door. Says “The prodogial daughter returns”. Asks her how Spain was, Serena replies with “Amazing, perfect” rather…nervously. Chuck says he’s sure, since her and Poppy were dancing on table tops in Barcelona and sun-bathing topless at some coastal region. Serena says more like her, Poppy and Gabriel. She tries to push Chuck out the door, who moves. Says she just read, ate, swam. Chuck asks again about the nude sunbathing and Serena just nervously looks around, then behind her. Asks if Lilly is around.
Chuck says he hasn’t seen her, but he has been occupied. Random nobody walks through the door. In a dress. Chuck calls her “last night’s entertainment”. She walks out the door, Chuck says she’s a swimmer. Serena says “so you found a way to get over Blair then?”. Chuck says there was a detour with a boho barista, but then he realised he’s a 17 year old billionaire. With tremedous stamina. Tonight Chuck has another date with a ballerina.
Then Chuck goes “By the way, I saw Poppy Lifton at the Rose Bar last week. It’s funny how she can be there, yet still be in Spain with you”. Chuck drinks from his tiny tea cup.
Serena looks shocked/guilty. Chuck leaves. Clip ends.

THE BIG BANG THEORY
Monday, May 11
As Sheldon prepares for a three-month science expedition, Leonard and Penny reconsider their feelings for one another.
The Big Bang Theory Heads to the North Pole
Source: Kristin on E!Online
The Big Bang Theory has big finale plans in the works. Seriously. Don’t you see the Snuggie on Johnny Galecki (Leonard)? Crazy, right? The guys are setting out on a summer adventure to the North Pole and leaving their girl Penny behind. You might be asking yourselves how they could do such a thing, but Jim Parsons (Sheldon) said it best. “I make them an offer they can’t refuse,” teased Jim. ”Not that Sheldon’s the Godfather, although I guess in some ways he is the scientific Godfather.” Why the North Pole? “Sheldon is invited to go on a National Science Foundation expedition to the arctic, and we go along as his crew,” said Johnny. “There’s a lot of bracing for three months on an ice cube in a hut—with Sheldon.” Sounds kooky. And the Snuggie? It’s just a thoughtful bon voyage gift from Penny to Leonard.
Speaking of the twosome, what does this mean for possible romance? Johnny tells us, “Leonard and Penny have to say goodbye for the summer, which blindsides them in a way that they didn’t foresee.” Kaley Cuoco (Penny) agrees. “The whole episode Penny’s acting very aloof. We don’t know until the last line of the episode exactly how she feels. She didn’t realize how much she didn’t want him to leave.”
What about life after the North Pole? Kunal Nayyar (Raj) and Simon Helberg (Wolowitz) have some ideas. Kunal’s suggestions? “We’re all going to come back with beards and bloodshot eyes. Raj has become 300 pounds. We’re all going to look like Joaquin Phoenix.” And Simon? “We’ll be wild animals when we get back. Sheldon should have a handlebar moustache, too.” Kaley’s hoping for some new meat too. “Four new guys, all living with her. Or they should come back and she’s met someone and it is semi-serious.” We’d definitely watch that show! Now that The Big Bang Theory is coming back for two more seasons, are you as excited as we are to see where things go with Leonard and Penny? What do you think about this North Pole craziness?
Question: Any more Big Bang Theory scoop for the finale?
Ausiello: It’s going to be full of crap! Kaley Cuoco explains: “The [guys] build a toilet and things go horribly wrong. They all find poop hilarious. It’s a space toilet, so I don’t have to use it or anything. Of course, it’s a space toilet on this show!” On the hotly debated subject of a Penny-Sheldon hookup, Cuoco confesses that she’s not a fan of the idea. “I don’t think it makes any sense,” she says. “Sheldon has no use for women. If it happened, I bet it would be a nightmare sequence. Sheldon is nowhere near boyfriend material and Penny loves him that way. [Besides], Sheldon barely lets her into his apartment — how would he get to the point of hooking up with her?” Source: The Ausiello Files
Question: For the love of God, please give me some Big Bang Theory spoilers!
Ausiello: Leonard’s “Stuart” problem rears its nerdy little head again on May 4 when Kevin Sussman’s comic-book guru returns to take Penny out on a date. But as exec producer Bill Prady reveals, “The date doesn’t go well and Leonard comes to possess a piece of information that makes him very happy.” Care to elaborate, Mr. Prady? “I’m not usually cagey, but it’s such a fun reveal at the end of the episode that I’m going to be a little cagey… I will say now that Leonard has this information, he’s going to find the events of the season finale confusing. And he’s going to spend the season finale trying to add up all the information he has and see if he can get it to make sense.” Source: The Ausiello Files
Will ‘Big Bang’ go there with Penny and Sheldon?
Source: The Ausiello Files
You’ve been asking me, I’ve been asking myself, and finally, I’ve gone and asked Big Bang Theory executive producer Bill Prady: What the frak is the deal with Sheldon and Penny? “We’re as baffled as Sheldon’s friends are by what his deal is,” never mind what his deal with Penny is, he says. “He doesn’t seem to have any interests that are particularly social, whether they are friendship ones or romantic ones. “I will say this: In our season 2 opener, Sheldon was kind of shocked when Penny casually acknowledged that the two of them were friends,” he continues. “I think just for Sheldon and Penny to have what she will acknowledge as a friendship is remarkable progress for him. She may be the only friend he’s made in a while, so I think everyone’s going to have to call that progress. Hoping for more may be way beyond possibility.” Note that Prady said “may be,” not “is.”
Also note that when Sheldon gets locked out of his apartment in the April 27 episode, “The Vegas Renormalization” — Leonard, Koothrappali and Wolowitz are, as the title suggests, in Sin City — the brainiac shacks up with the girl next door. But what does it all mean, especially in light of what Prady tells me in today’s AA about a potentially huge advance in Leonard and Penny’s relationship in the season’s last two episodes? “You never know,” he teases.

Adele to Sing at an ‘Ugly Betty’ Wedding

In May, ‘Ugly Betty’ will up the ante with a wedding which is revamped with a performance by ‘Chasing Pavements’ hitmaker Adele.
Despite being shelved contemporary, “Ugly Betty” is still trying hard to keep up with the pace. And to revamp the show, the producers have invited British singer Adele to appear in a future episode when it comes back to its regular Thursday slot in May. She will be performing a song at a photo shoot “that culminates into a surprise wedding,” according to a press release by ABC. There is no further detail released for the episode, including what song will be performed and whose wedding it will be. The third season of “Ugly Betty” is put aside to give room for “Samantha Who?“. The show will return on May 7 and end on May 21. Becki Newton who plays Amanda in the series said previously that ABC has ordered for a fourth season.
