‘One Tree Hill’: Peyton’s car finally crashes
“One Tree Hill” fulfilled a prophecy it set into motion in the first season tonight by finally having Peyton get into that car accident she tried so hard to make happen way back when. The kicker? This time, it happened right when Peyton was feeling happier than she has in weeks. Let me tell you, nowhere does your past come back to haunt you more thoroughly and destructively than in Tree Hill….READ FULL RECAP
‘Gossip Girl’: Serena gets married, and one memorable Passover Seder….
Several things became apparent in tonight’s “Gossip Girl.” First, it’s never a good idea to stay in Spain with your friend’s (now) ex-boyfriend “to keep him company.” Second, Blair is a lot less fun when she’s flailing about and selling out whatever principles she’s clinging to rather than being on the offensive. And third, none of these people should ever be allowed within 10 miles of a Passover Seder again….READ FULL RECAP
‘Desperate Housewives’ 5.20 Preview: Carlos Sees Naked Lynette

Post Edie’s death, the ‘Desperate Housewives’ as well as the men suffer the consequences of keeping a secret.
“Desperate Housewives” returned last night with the farewell of Edie Britt, but next week the drama still continues without the departed. In “Rose’s Turn” that airs April 26, covering up the truth leads to unexpected consequences. Carlos finds Lynette in a precarious position, which she chooses to hide from Tom. Gaby hastily covers for Tom’s coy behavior. Orson tries to hide the truth about his wounds from Bree. Katherine confesses to Mike, which leads to a surprising realization, and Susan confides her dark secret in Dave.
“Desperate Housewives” had its panel attending Paley Festival on Saturday, April 18. Creator Marc Cherry said to the audience that there’s a chance Mike and Susan “will find their way back in each other’s universe.” However, later during 20th GLAAD Media Awards where the show was honored, Dana Delany dished to E! Online that there will be two engagements, which are Katherine and Mike as well as Jackson and Susan.
Heroes (April 27, NBC)
Not content to merely impersonate Sen. Nathan Petrelli, Sylar shape-shifts his way ever-closer to the president as the heroes — including the Petrelli brothers and their mother — work together to take him down. At least one person dies — sort of — and we find out whether the rumors are true that Volume 5 is indeed called “Redemption.” One thing we do know: Season 3 went a long ways toward redeeming the series — and the finale holds many of its finest moments.

‘Heroes’ will wrap it up with ‘An Invisible Thread’ where Nathan goes head to head for the final battle against Sylar, but consequences are paid.
“Heroes” will wrap the fourth volume “Fugitives” next Monday, April 27. A preview for the finale episode titled “An Invisible Thread” has been released, showing Claire in Sylar’s hand, 911 call for Hiro and Petrelli brothers teaming up. Nathan faces off against Sylar to keep him from meeting the President (guest star Michael Dorn). Sylar has his own plans for his new partner. Meanwhile, Hiro learns that there are repercussions to regaining his ability. Elsewhere, Matt is forced to go to extraordinary lengths to protect his future with his family. Creator Tim Kring spoke to E! About the headbutt between Nathan and Sylar. “You will see a face-off. You can feel the two lines converging toward each other, very much, in the next episode. There’s still Building 26 and Danko to deal with, and those bad guys to put down, and then the whole stopping of Sylar’s nefarious plan. All of our characters are involved. The season finale is the best episode we’ve done in a really, really long time,” he elaborated. Also dished on the article is who are definitely RIP and who will return for more action. In the mean time, there has been no news yet on a fourth season pickup from NBC but fans can chew in for another webisode series “Nowhere Man” which focuses on Eric Doyle, starting April 20.

Claire putting her suspicion over Nathan, Hiro ailing in his health and Angela begging Parkman to help Nathan in the April 27 episode of ‘Heroes’.
Three clips from the finale of “Heroes” are available. In the first one, Claire asks Nathan whether he is really himself and not Sylar, while in the second one Dr. Suresh orders Hiro not to freeze the time anymore because his human body is rejecting the power. The last and third clip is Angela telling Parkman that he must help Nathan like in her dream. “An Invisible Thread”, the last episode in the third season, will air on Monday, April 27. Nathan faces off against Sylar to keep him from meeting the President (guest star Michael Dorn). Sylar has his own plans for his new partner while Hiro learns that there are repercussions to regaining his ability. Elsewhere, Matt is forced to go to extraordinary lengths to protect his future with his family. Writer Bryan Fuller hints a bit on the season finale, revealing to Digital Spy, “I think it’s the best finale the show has had. We were sitting in the room, planning the last couple of episodes, saying we know the mistakes we’ve made, we don’t want to make them again, so how do we tell an effective story given everything we’ve done in the Fugitives arc? I think we came up with a really good way to pay off the season.” He added that for the fifth volume the writers had set up a “fantastic arc” for HRG, the Petrellis, and the Bennets. “All of the main characters that are surviving the finale have great ways to propel them into new stories.”
Question: Please, please, please give us a hint about whom Sylar kills in Monday’s Heroes season finale!
Ausiello: It’s a major character, and the death definitely sticks. But there is a twist. (Hint: It’s possible no one will be leaving the show.) BTW, the finale is fantastic. It’s compelling, suspense-filled and, most importantly, events occur consecutively and in the present day. Heroes is back, people! Source: The Ausiello Files
Heroes‘ Adrian Pasdar: Fewer Episodes Will Be Better for Viewers
Source: TV Guide Online
Adrian Pasdar, Heroes
At least one Heroes cast member thinks the news that NBC is cutting the show’s fourth-season episode count is a good thing. Adrian Pasdar, who plays flying U.S. Senator Nathan Petrelli, said after working on such a long production schedule this season, shooting only 18 episodes will be “a relief.” “If things start shifting around, they can always add more at the end, but doing 25 episodes this year was nearly 11 months of work,” Pasdar told TVGuide.com. “We love the work, but in order for the quality to be maintained, you can’t just keep grinding it out .” “The pacing will be a little better — we were sometimes shooting three episodes at once, and there’s no way that something doesn’t slip through the cracks,” Pasdar said. ”It just gets crazy.” Pasdar’s character is heading toward a showdown with Sylar (Zachary Quinto) in Monday’s season finale, the end of which provides plenty of interesting ground to cover in the show’s fifth volume. (Stay tuned for a tease-y finale preview next week!) Because of the complexity of the coming story, Pasdar said the shorter season would benefit the show’s fans most of all. “This will make it better for everybody, and ultimately for the viewers,” he said. “It will be a more streamlined version of a show that’s very complex. It will still maintain its complexity, but I think it will be easier to follow.”
Any scoop on who is the death that sticks in the season finale of Heroes?
Sources confirm to us that the Heroes death that sticks is male, and he’s someone you’ve definitely come to know quite well since season one. In many ways, the killer also dies, but you’ll just have to wait until next week to understand what that means. Source: Kristin on E!Online

Want to know what to expect from the final two episodes of Heroes? Need to know what we can all look forward to in next season’s new volume, Redemption?
Exclusive Heroes dish direct from executive producers Tim Kring and Bryan Fuller and star Greg Grunberg.
Who’s dead? Who’s alive? Which two faves fight in the finale? And which characters are coming back next year?
Here’s the very latest, very juiciest scoop from the guys who know Heroes best:
NBC/ Chris Haston
Tonight’s Episode: Tim Kring tells us that this week’s and last week’s eps are a bit of a loop: “At the end of the last episode we saw that Sylar was impersonating Nathan Petrelli, and tonight’s episode 24 explains how he got to be Nathan Petrelli at the end of episode 23. It sort of rewinds a little bit.” And despite the face-swapping confusion, Nathan and Sylar do go head-to-head before the end of the season. Says Kring, “You will see a face-off. You can feel the two lines converging toward each other, very much, in the next episode. There’s still Building 26 and Danko to deal with, and those bad guys to put down, and then the whole stopping of Sylar’s nefarious plan. All of our characters are involved. The season finale is the best episode we’ve done in a really, really long time.”
Bad Matt? According to Greg Grunberg, “The last two episodes are absolutely huge. My character is asked to do something, and does something, that is incredibly dark and results in the demise of another character. It’s not expected. It’s pretty sick. Torture is involved. It’s someone we all know. It felt great to tap into my dark side.”
The Old Ones: Based of the success of last week’s “1961″ episode, look for lots more in season four about young Angela, Alice and the rest of the Company founders in their idealistic youth. Says Kring, “We didn’t plan on it until we saw how good ’1961′ came out. We all fell in love with those actors who were playing the younger versions of them. We are devising season four to go back to that timeframe, since lots of interesting things happened at the beginning of the formation of the Company. I found it a really effective way to dig into the mythology of the show.”
The Path to Redemption: For us fans, season three isn’t done yet, but the writers are already back working on season four, and according to Bryan Fuller it really will be a brave new era for the show. Bryan tells us, “Fugitives was such a dark chapter in the history of Heroes, so we look at Redemption as a unifying theme for next season. We’re going to see redemption for all of the characters in one respect or another. Our goal going into season four is taking every character and making that character’s story evolve into an entire series. We just want the smorgasbord of Heroes to be as satisfying for everybody.” Smorgasbord or no, among those Heroes getting a special treatment next year is Masi Oka‘s Hiro Nakamura. Bryan Fuller says that, “The Hiro story for season four is the best story we’ve ever come up with for Hiro. It’s so emotional and exciting and adventurous.”

DEAD OR ALIVE?
Daphne Milbrook: Sadly, Brea Grant is really gone and really not coming back. Kring tells us, “Alas, poor Daphne. She has met her demise. There are always ways of breaking time and space, but she is indeed dead.”
Claude and Adam: Fan favorites Invisible Claude and Adam Monroe are also not likely to appear any time soon. Despite rumors that Adam might back in the finale, Kring says, “We felt like we killed him in a very satisfying way, and there really had to be some finality on the show, or else we lose all credibility. His death by Arthur Petrelli was pretty hard to come back from, so, as far as him being alive in the present-day story, that’s a tall order.”
Tracy Strauss: On the other hand, Ali Larter‘s Tracy, while seemingly dead, does return. Says Kring, “It looks fairly dire for Tracy Strauss’ character, except if you stop and rewind the last couple of seconds when she was melting down the grate you may see some indication that the impossible could happen with that character.” Bryan Fuller spills, “I think Ali was so underused on this show, and watching the show as a fan, I was frustrated because Ali Larter is a really good actress, and she’s really engaging. So I was glad to write an episode where we get to focus on her character, because I adore her, so it’s fun to write for somebody that gets you excited about the story.” Will Ali be playing Barbara when she returns? “No,” says Bryan. Can melted, shattered Tracy really come back together? “Watch the finale,” replies Bryan.
Question: Bummed about Chad and Hilarie leaving One Tree Hill. At least tell me Lucas and Peyton get a proper sendoff in Monday’s finale. Ausiello: According to EW’s Jennifer Armstrong, who screened the finale yesterday, Leyton “definitely comes to a natural resting place that feels right for them and ties up their story nicely; however, they do not get an actual sendoff of any kind.” Speaking of Chad and Hilarie’s exit, in the very near future I’ll be posting something every Tree Hill fan will want to read. Trust me. Source: The Ausiello Files
Question: Give me something about the One Tree Hill finale!
Ausiello: What else you got, Armstrong? “Brooke finally gets two things she’s long wanted, we find out the fate of Peyton and the baby, and Whitey (the retired HS basketball coach) and Karen (Lucas’ mom, played by Moira Kelly) appear.” Thanks for ID’ing those last two JA, ’cause I wouldn’t of had a clue who you were talking about. Still don’t, in fact. Source: The Ausiello Files
Question: Give us scoop on the new characters that will be joining One Tree Hill next season. Ausiello: The three new faces include: Quinn, Haley’s free-spirited, strong-willed older sister; Alexis, a model-actress-crazy bitch in her 20s who Brooke hires to be the new face of her clothing line; and Clayton, a young and brash sports agent who takes on Nathan as a client. Source: The Ausiello Files
Will One Tree Hill‘s “Leyton” be back next season with mini Leyton? MATT: Alas, in the days since you sent in this question, the CW confirmed that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton will not be returning for Season 7. The silver lining is that the actors’ final outing is a solid one. TVGuide.com’s Robyn Ross, who screened the May 18 season finale, reports that the hour “wraps things up in a little bow with no shockers to leave us hanging. Old faces were back, and dreams were truly realized. Perhaps it could’ve served better as a series finale, because I’d love to think this is the way these stories would have ended.” Source: TV Guide Online

‘One Tree Hill’ Season 6 Finale Preview: Peyton’s Life in Danger

In a rather sad tone, the preview of ‘One Tree Hill’ season finale next Monday shows Lucas’ personal dilemma when his wife is brought on stretcher.
“One Tree Hill” could wrap up the sixth season with a tragic ending. In the preview released for the May 18 episode titled “Remember Me as a Time of Day”, unconscious Peyton is brought to the ER by Lucas who got his hand bloody. The official synopsis is read: “The season finale finds favorite characters’ lives about to change forever. Nathan is released from the Chiefs, and is forced to face Haley and Jamie. On the eve of Peyton’s delivery, Lucas and Peyton receive a surprise visit from Karen (guest star Moira Kelly). Dan is on death’s door, while Brooke and Victoria prepare to re-launch Clothes Over Bro’s.” A scoop from E! Online reveals that Julian will also be in the finale, which could lead to the reconciliation of him and Brooke. Also, Kate Voegele aka Mia will release a record on the episode. “There’s this amazing scene that we shot at a Best Buy, and they have a huge line of fans,” Voegele said. “Mia’s releasing her record, and Mia’s record is my record. So on the day that my album, A Fine Mess, comes out in real life, Mia’s album, A Fine Mess, will be coming out on One Tree Hill.”
One Tree Hill finale! Julian appears in the finale, so maybe that means he and Brooke will finally decide to be together? Plus, both Mia—and her portrayer, real-life singer Kate Voegele—are releasing their albums in the OTH finale. “There’s this amazing scene that we shot at a Best Buy, and they have a huge line of fans. Mia’s releasing her record, and Mia’s record is my record. So on the day that my album, A Fine Mess, comes out in real life, Mia’s album, A Fine Mess, will be coming out on One Tree Hill.” A little confusing, but you get it! Source: Kristin on E!Online

Though we’ve known for months that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton would not return to “One Tree Hill” this fall for the series’ seventh season, The CW has just now officially confirmed the actors’ exits. A network rep tells me they will be welcoming two new cast members, in addition to Austin Nichols, as series regulars.

It looks like One Tree Hill newlyweds Peyton and Lucas are about to embark on a permanent honeymoon. Sources confirm that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton, whose characters tied the knot in last night’s penultimate episode, will not be returning for the show’s seventh season next fall. The CW is expected to formally announce their departures next Thursday at its upfront presentation. Murray and Burton have been engaged in rather high-profile contract negotiations for the past several months. Ultimately, a deal couldn’t be worked out and both actors will make their final appearances in next Monday’s season finale. To fill the void next season, a Hill insider tells me that two new characters will be introduced. Additionally, Austin Nichols (Julian) is being promoted to a series regular. What say you, Tree Hill fans? Pumped for OTH 2.0? Too upset to even think about it? Let loose in the comments section.

‘Gossip Girl’ gets busy again with Chuck-Blair, Blair-Nate, Nate-Jenny, Blair-Dan?!
Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV
A little “GG” Q&A, answers courtesy of exec producer Stephanie Savage…
Have the “Gossip Girl” producers read all the “Gossip Girl” books? I’m curious to know how familiar they are with them. -Kris
Savage told me they read most of the books. And they got familiar with the stories in the ones they skipped by studying summaries. As fans of both the books and the show already know though, the producers are on their own path: “A lot of the stories we’re telling are not in the books whatsoever — the whole Chuck and Blair romance [for example] — so there’s not a lot of material we can draw on. [The show] has to grow and expand and be its own thing.”
Everyone’s all about Chuck-Blair/Blair-Nate blah blah blah. What about Jenny and Nate? I thought they were great together. Will we ever see them reunited?
Sounds like it. Just not anytime soon. Said Savage, “Nate and Jenny is actually a really big story in the books and we sort of dipped our toe into that pool a few times. As the characters get older and start to feel the same age, that is definitely material I think we can revisit.”
There’s no way all the “Gossip Girl” kids would end up staying in NYC after high school graduation. Please tell me that’s not going to happen.
I read this question to Stephanie and she responded by saying, “Well, New York is a pretty big city.” Personally, I think they should let Dan go off to Yale. We can see him every now and then when he comes home to visit or when Jenny goes down to Connecticut for college debauchery weekends with big brother… but somehow I doubt that’ll happen. Still, Savage ensures there will for sure be changes: “It really is kind of a major — and I think very exciting — reconfiguration of the show, to leave high school behind and to allow all of our characters to reinvent themselves outside of that construct. They’ll [discover] what it means to kind of be a part of the bigger world, so you can expect to see new couples, new family configurations, people living in different places than you last saw them. We’re having a lot of fun thinking about that… keep everything that everyone loves [about "Gossip Girl"], but also really kind of move everyone forward as well.”
Is Vanessa going to school next year? Will she continue her education?
Savage said we’ll have to wait and see, but she also said, don’t forget, Vanessa took her SATs.
Any more major “Gossip Girl” deaths I should expect?
Nah. Stephanie doesn’t see that happening. “I think we have a pretty tight cast and I think we would only be interested in adding, not subtracting.”
More Dorota please.
Not to worry, Savage said they knew Dorota was a super star straight away and will continue writing for her. Were you aware that the actress who plays her, Zuzanna Szadkowski, actually speaks Polish, so the producers decide what they want Dorota to say and then rely on Zuzanna to translate it for her character’s lines?
On “Gossip Girl” I need to know, will Dan and Blair ever be romantically involved?
The producers aren’t opposed to it. When I questioned Stephanie about a Dan-Blair pairing, she said, “There are only so many characters on our show, so everyone needs to be open to being with everyone at some point.”
Vicki in Las Vegas: Gossip Girl!
Serena did not really get married, this is a bit of an off week for Blair (she’s in a funk because of her love problemos) and Chuck apologizes to Jenny for that time he tried to get up on her in the pilot (back when Gossip Girl still showed depraved indifference to everything, before it turned into a modern comedy-of-manners masterpiece), but let’s talk about the most important thing: Dorota-sodes are coming! Source: Kristin on E!Online
Petra in Austin, Texas: What’s the buzz on the Gossip Girl spinoff pilot?
Apparently “Lily” [sic] is not a full pilot. Rather, the ’80s flashbacks are half of a Gossip Girl episode (tied into Serena’s storyline), so it’s hard to judge the series as a whole, but from what insiders have seen so far, it looks good, and Krysten Ritter and Brittany Snow in particular are supposed to be awesome. Yay! Source: Kristin on E!Online
First Look: ‘Gossip Girl’ spinoff’s Brittany Snow as totally ’80s Lily
We already know that Brittany Snow will play the younger version of Kelly Rutherford‘s Lily in the “Gossip Girl” spinoff set back in the 1980s, but now you can see her in all her over-mascara’d, totally ’80s glory. As you can see from this poster obtained by Spoiler TV, Snow as Lily has run into a bit of trouble in a flashback for the May 11th “Gossip Girl” episode, “Valley Girls,” which will act as a backdoor pilot to the spinoff.
And yeah … it looks like Serena got her wild child ways from her mother!
‘Gossip Girl’ 2.22 Preview: Georgina Is Back in Town
Georgina, who has an unpleasant history with Serena, is back to Upper East Side with unknown motive in ‘A Southern Gentleman Prefer Blondes’.
Georgina is back in town. In the next episode of “Gossip Girl“, the frienemy of Serena will return to the Upper East Side after undergoing a major transformation. “Her last name is Sparks, so sparks will fly,” Michelle Trachtenberg teased on the impact of Georgina’s arrival, adding that she will be “causing quite a stir, as Georgina does.” Also in the April 27 episode, Chuck and Nate find themselves at a major crossroads in their relationship as it pertains to their mutual interest in Blair. Serena finds her relationship with Gabriel growing more complicated.
On another “Gossip Girl” news, Chace Crawford is said finding difficulty in committing to the show and taking on a new project, “Footloose“. A source told E!, “There’s a big overlap of when he’d have to shoot Footloose and the next season of Gossip Girl.” Reps for Chace and the movie have not given any comment.

A transcript of a new sneak peek that we’ve not been able to the video for yet. Once we have it we’ll be sure to post.
Vanessa is sitting, sipping a beer at the kitchen counter, when Dan walks in.
Dan: Hello. Since when did my apartment become your watering hole of choice?
Vanessa: Rufus and Jenny let me in on their way out. Thought I’d wait for you and we’d play a little ‘I Never!’ I kind of already started.
Dan: Yeah, I can see that. *cracks the top off a beer*
Vanessa: I’ll go first…I never slept with Chuck Bass. *CHUGS* (Dan looks hilariously disgusted) That’s why I’ve been avoiding you. I know, it’s…repulsive!
Dan: It is…completely repulsive. But you’ve gone through a lot lately. I mean, the whole Blair/Nate reunion and all, (something I can’t understand) so you get no judgment from me. Everyone makes mistakes, at least once. I never…nearly slept with Georgina Sparks. *drinks*
Vanessa: I never slept with Chuck Bass twice *chugs again*
Vanessa: *still drinking* Dan…you’re lucky. However bad your life sucks right now, you didn’t need an STD panel this week. (they both laugh)
Dan: yeah…there’s that. Wait, why does my life suck right now?
