The Vampire Diaries Season 2 Spoilers!

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES: Next season, the appearance of the villainous Katherine in Mystic Falls throws a wrench into the love triangle between Stefan, Elena and Damon, and the other residents of Mystic Falls must choose sides as they fall victim to a new breed of danger. New and unexpected friendships will be forged, allies will become enemies, and hearts will be broken. Stefan and Damon will be forced to face a villain more evil and diabolical than they ever believed possible. And they’ll take their shirts off.  Frequently.

Vampire Diaries – new season 2 spoilers

In season 2, the Stefan/Elena/Damon will evolve into a Stefan/Katherine/Elena/Damon quadrangle and surprisingly it will be Stefan, NOT Damon, who will be the most affected by Katherine’s return: it will turn out he’s not as over her as he thought he was. Elena will come to come to terms with the fact that she may have developed feelings that are more than friendly towards Damon. Damon, on the other hand, will be busy devising a plan with the Council of the Founding Fathers to take down Katherine.
And yes, werewolves will be introduced next season and one of them (probably Tyler?) will connect with a certain witch (Bonnie?) while trying to deal with how to cope with their supernatural abilities.

Vampire Diaries or Bieber Diaries?

Beiber would be an interesting add to the teeny bopper program. Although he’s an incredibly popular 16 year old, he could also be the son of 44% of Vampire Diaries fans, who are females over 35. This over 35 crowd may be more interested in the next celebrity whose name is being put out in the media. Nina Dobrev was reported in a UK broadsheet as wanting Ralph Fiennes to appear in the show. She is quoted as saying Fiennes “would be brilliant at being a vampire.”
The Vampire Diaries will soon begin filming again in Covington, Georgia – aka Mystic Falls, Virginia. Twenty one episodes have been filmed thus far in this quaint metro Atlanta town. The media, entranced as always with the popular show, is batting about names of celebrities who may or may not appear in the next season.
The Beiber rumor appears to have some truth to it; reportedly his people have talked to Vampire Diaries people about a small role, though nothing is being confirmed yet. The same report claims the Vampire Diaries staff initiated the contact.
The link between the show and Beiber has additional credence after Katerina Graham, who plays Bonnie Bennett, shows up in Beiber’s latest music video dancing to “Somebody to Love.”

The Vampire Diaries – Elena and Katherine to Faceoff

Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie and The Patty Duke Show all did it way back in the ’60s, and next season on The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev’s Elena will make her onscreen debut on the same screen with Nina Dobrev’s Katherine, who made her dramatic return to Mystic Falls posing as Elena in May’s season finale.
“I can’t talk much about it yet,” says executive producer Julie Plec, “but one of the big surprises is that Katherine comes face to face with Elena.”
How does Nina feel about playing both Elena and her 19th century doppelgänger in the same scenes? “I will have to ask for a second pay check,” kids the 21-year-old, who as a child marveled over Lindsay Lohan’s dual performance in The Parent Trap. While special effects have advanced a thousandfold since Elizabeth Montgomery’s Samantha/Serena face-offs on Bewitched, Nina is still worried about emoting opposite a stand-in tennis ball when the series resumes production in July. “It will be difficult because a lot of acting is reacting to the other person, but it’ll be fun to step out of my comfort zone.”
Nina’s not the only one who’ll be given a tough acting assignment. Having the look-alike ladies in the same town will also force Ian Somerhalder to play two different sides of Damon. “It’s going to be an emotional rollercoaster for me,” Ian predicts. “Damon, with Katherine, is this youthful wide-eyed fun guy who is so intrigued by her — so different from the maniacal, more mature Damon you see with Elena.”

Desperate Housewives – Dana Delany Moves to Castle for 2 Episodes

Kinky ABC has OK’d a kind of “wife swap,” lending out Desperate Housewives‘ Dana Delany to Castle for two episodes, sources confirm to me exclusively.
But Delany won’t be playing Katherine Mayfair, she’ll be playing Federal Agent Jordan Shaw.
Why this almost unprecedented move? Try ulterior motives. The network likely is hoping that Delany’s presence will draw more eyeballs to Castle, particularly since her first episode will air on Sunday, March 21 at 10 pm/ET following — duh — Housewives. (Brothers & Sisters has the week off.) The Emmy winner’s second Castle, which reunites her with her Desperate ex, Nathan Fillion, will air in the series’ regular Monday-at-10 timeslot on March 22.

Castle – Casting News

Desperate Housewives‘ Dana Delany will have some backup when she crosses over to Castle later this season.
Ex-Heroes star Leonard Roberts has been cast as the partner of Delany’s kick-ass federal agent character, sources confirm to me exclusively.
In the two-part episode, the first of which is conveniently scheduled to air after immediately following Housewives on March 21, the feds (a.k.a. Delany and Roberts) are brought in to assist Castle and Beckett on a serial killer case. The conclusion airs the following night in Castle’s regular Monday-at-10 timeslot.
In related news, ABC — no doubt encouraged by Castle’s season-high ratings on Monday — just increased the show’s episode order from 22 to 24.
It’s official: This thing’s a hit!

Happy birthday to John!
Mimsy’s back — and she has a new, black husband.
Lauren tells her love interest Jesse that her entire family hates him.
Months ago, Ken Baumann (Ben) said that something big would happen with Ben near the end of the season. Given the title of the episode, we suspect it happens in either this episode or the previous one.
There might be a wedding . . . or two . . . or more? We’re not sure if the show will have any single adults once the season’s over!
The tradition of no one being able to keep a secret continues, as Adrian told Grace something; Grace told Jack; and Jack told Madison. And we can’t be sure, but given Madison’s former history, we suspect Madison told everyone else. Adrian’s secret may or may not be related to the fact that her father thinks she looks ill.

General Spoilers:
There might be another pregnancy.
A major story involving Leo kicks off near the start of the season as Betty makes a major turn.
Grace and Ben either kiss or come close to kissing. We don’t believe anything else actually happens between them,
though, given his makeout session with Maria and his sleeping with Adrian.
Charles Robinson (Mac from Night Court) will appear in a recurring role.
We believe Mayim Bialik appears again as Dr. Wilhelmina Bink again this season after her initial appearance on
January 4, next appearance unknown.
Kristin Bauer, known best these days as Pam on True Blood, will guest star in an upcoming episode. We don’t know yet who she’s playing.
Danny Pintauro, best known as the kid from Who’s The Boss?, will guest star in an upcoming episode.
Shawn Johnson will return to the show in 2010, in scenes with Jack and Grace. Her first appearance was as herself, but this time she’s playing a character. We believe she’ll appear somewhere around the time that Grace organizes Just Say Me.

True Blood Episode Recap: “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’”

True Blood

The witching hour is upon us, folks! In the second-season finale of True Blood, Maryann’s plan comes to a surprising conclusion, as both Bill and Sam make serious sacrifices to try to thwart her. But wait, there’s a whole lot more, as the residents of Bon Temps, specifically Eggs, have much difficulty dealing with the messy, memory-challenged aftermath, during which Jason and Andy will make life-changing decisions.

The Queen reveals that she’s the source of Eric’s V-dealing operations, and she is none too pleased that Bill knows about it. Even with Maxine back to “normal,” Hoyt and Jessica’s relationship still has its challenges. And just when Bill and Sookie — who has begun to question whether she is even human — get ready for their happy ending, a juicy cliff-hanger postpones it… for at least a year, when we’ll next see a new episode of Alan Ball’s genius vampire fables. Sucks, doesn’t it? (One last vampire pun for the road!)…. read more

And I think his main focus right now is just trying to be the best dad he can to the kid, regardless of if his relationship with Amy works out. So, that’s his main objective—just taking care of the kid.” Source: Kristin on E!Online
  • Rumer Willis is having a baby! At least she’ll be pretending to have one on The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Bruce and Demi’s actress-offspring will play a pregnant teen in an episode to air in mid-August. Secret Life’s second season gets underway June 22. Source: EW

The Secret Life of the American Teenager Season 2 Episode Recaps

‘The Secret Life of the American Teenager’: Not exactly a top party school

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

For some reason, it never struck me before the opening scenes on tonight’s “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” that so many of the kids in that school have lost a parent. I actually think the notion of having a support group for those kids makes complete and total sense… no wonder the meeting didn’t go well.

Madison wasn’t really a help in that conversation, but Madison is never really a help with anything, is she? She certainly ought to have been smarter than to allow a picture of a very pregnant Amy in the yearbook. Not a terribly friend-like thing to do, was it? And, as Madison and Lauren remind us every time they appear on the show – you know, once every four episodes – they’re Amy’s best friends.

Forget that crazy Madison though, let’s head straight to the meat of things – Ben and the prostitute, aka Betty, aka the Sausage King’s potential new queen. Ben spilled the beans tonight about Betty’s occupation, and it turns out that Leo knew all along. Leo made the claim that Betty has quit her one-time profession. I’m not quite sure I accept that, do you?

Elsewheres, wouldn’t life be great if Amy was slightly less whiny? How can she possibly be surprised that she has classes to make up? Surely she recognized that there were only so many classes she could miss in a school year before getting an incomplete. Oh, wait, we’re talking about Amy here, the girl who thinks that she can leave her child for two months to go to Italy, leave her job for two months to go to Italy, and that she deserves a part-time job that gives her full benefits and where they watch her child for free, and, and, and. Once you consider that, her shock makes complete sense.

You can fight me as much as you want about George and Anne not being right for each other, but come on, you can’t actually argue that David is the right guy. He’s already done the surprise house thing and now this week he did the surprise parent meeting. What, exactly, is wrong with that man? Is he so insecure with who he is and his standing with Anne that he can’t be upfront about anything? Anne already had a deceptive spouse in George, does she want to go through that again? She can’t marry David. She shouldn’t marry David. You know I’m right.

Bits and pieces:

  • How great was it that Ashley set George straight tonight? That alleged troublemaker has been quiet for way too long. Too bad George didn’t take the advice.
  • Good for Ricky, wanting John with him on his first night in his new place. Not surprised that Adrian couldn’t handle it though.
  • Is it in any way possible that Adrian’s parents were okay with her having made an offer on George’s house? Shouldn’t there have been some sort of discussion about that?
  • Does anyone else out there have a lot of trouble seeing Grace as being in mourning? I know that she claims to be in mourning, but nothing else about her really gives off that vibe. I don’t know what I want, but I’m sure it starts with dark, modest clothes, not bright low-cut tops and miniskirts.
  • Molina is leaving the school… and there was a moment I thought that he was supposed to be a real character on the show (after that he disappeared for months on end).
  • Does anyone else get the sense that tonight’s episode was supposed to have been last season’s finale?

‘The Secret Life of the American Teenager’: Secrets and lies and foolishness

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

The Secret Life of the American Teenager” has more secrets running around than you can shake a stick at, and they don’t all revolve around the American teenager. At some point they’re going to need to start issuing a scorecard and program with the show. It’s just great, isn’t it?

I can’t imagine what world Amy lives in that she really thinks that she can go to Italy. That whole thing about “exposing” John to other cultures almost sounded like she believed… almost. Plus, Ricky was right, Amy can’t take John out of the country without Ricky’s permission. She could lie to Passport Control and say that Ben was the father, and that seems like the kind of thing she would do, but breaking a federal law like that may be a worse idea than her quitting her daycare job to go to Italy. And that, friends, is a terrible idea.

I think though that I’m beginning to understand where Anne is coming from a little bit more when she tries to do things like get Amy to make her eggs. Anne definitely comes across a little harsh and whiny from time to time, but it seems as though she’s just doing it to make Amy hear what she, Amy, sounds like. Or, it could be that Anne’s just as irresponsible as Ricky’s foster mom thinks she is.

Ummm… I don’t know how to ask this, but is Betty still a “woman of the night?” Does she still work in the “oldest profession?” Is she still “sleeping with men who leave cash on the nightstand and who tip her based on her performance in that piece of furniture that generally sits next to the nightstand?” I’m only asking because when Ben asked Betty about her arrival time in court she flubbed the answer and then there was that conversation later with Tom. Obviously she’s not a court reporter, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that she’s still getting paid to do what they can teach you all about in Bologna. Can you imagine what the conversation between Leo and Ben is going to be once Ben finds out about Betty’s job (whether it’s current or not)?

Ricky. He wants to be legally emancipated and thinks that his being a 16-year-old father shows that he’s all grown up? Call me kooky, but it’s kind of odd to use teenage pregnancy as an explanation of just how responsible you are. Yes, it’s great that he’s trying to work more over the summer and Leo’s getting him an apartment is nice (especially such a huge place), but that doesn’t mean that he ought to be emancipated.

Why did Grace tell everyone that George lied about the vasectomy? George helped her when she was feeling horrific, gave her a shoulder to cry on, and that’s how she repays him? That girl is going to completely mess up my plans for George and Anne getting back together, and that’s not the sort of thing I can accept. I don’t know what I’m going to do about it, but it’s not going to be pretty.

Ben telling Amy about the vasectomy was wholly predictable, as was – sadly – the fact that he’d do it in awkward, horrible fashion. Far less predictable was the fact that Ashley would back her father’s vasectomy lie to Amy. There’s going to be a reckoning in that household awfully soon.

True Blood Season 2 Episode Recaps

‘True Blood’: The true Reverend revealed

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

True Blood” begins to pick up the pace this week, with storylines that have long been on slow burn finally taking some dramatic turns.

We start out with a killer teaser this week featuring my favorite bad-boy vamp Eric feeding on one of the hotel’s working girls. He stops when Lorena enters the room and he greets her with the revelation that he was the one who summoned her to Dallas. Naughty, naughty, Eric! I Methinks he wanted a little distraction for Bill, no? He confirms that he wants something from Sookie and needs Lorena to keep Bill busy while he gets it. I can’t wait to see how this shakes out!

This week also features another lovely flashback! This time we get to see Lorena and Bill in Prohibition-era Chicago. It seems the Bill of 80 years ago wasn’t so human friendly, as the flashback involves Lorena and Bill seducing, torturing and killing a rich couple for fun. Aw, they’re just like old school Angelus and Darla! Them having sex on the bloody bed while their female victim lay there dying was deliciously disturbing. It’s nice to be reminded that vamps aren’t all kittens and TruBlood and rainbows.

Bill and Isabel decide to send a fellow human, Hugo, with Sookie to infiltrate the Fellowship, with them posing as an engaged couple. They exchange notes about dating vampires, which hee! It turns out Hugo wants to be turned so he can be with Isabel forever, which Sookie admits she has never even thought about before. I think it might come up at some point. Just a hunch. Sookie and Hugo go on their mission, which starts out great until Sookie reads Reverend and Sarah Newlin’s minds and realizes they know EXACTLY who she is. Ruh roh! The Reverend tries to lure them into the basement, but when they try to flee he and his henchman drag them down there against their will. Bill senses Sookie’s danger but is stopped by Lorena making her appearance. Will Jason be the one to discover his sister in danger? Here’s hoping.

Jason gets tapped to participate in the infamous and prestigious “Meet the Sun” ceremony, which is basically a vampire torture/murder ritual. What an honor! While building the torture device, Jason and Luke get in a conversation about infidelity and abstinence. Jason considers becoming abstinent for at least 30 seconds, but I doubt it will stick. Especially when Sarah later cries on his shoulder, reveals to him that they are being trained to start a war with the vampires, and puts it out there that she is supposed to be with him, not the Reverend. God told her so and everything! Jason confirms that Sarah got the go-ahead from God for them to have an affair, and he dives right in there in the church. Now that’s the Jason we know and love!

Andy questions Lafayette about his disappearance and loss of pizazz since he’s been back. He starts yelling at Lafayette and this causes a PTSD-type reaction on Lafayette where he sees Andy’s words coming out of Eric’s mouth. Very effectively creepy. Terry recognizes Lafayette’s pain, runs his cousin off and comforts Lafayette. Later, Pam shows up in Merlotte’s walk-in and informs him that Eric is demanding Lafayette get back in the V business. Eeenteresting.

Hoyt’s mother canceled his phone because Jessica was calling him late at night. Hoyt demands his mother turn the phone back on and one-ups her concern about Jessica not being a proper girl by confessing that the reason she only calls him late at night is because she’s a vampire. Awesome. Hoyt drives to Dallas and surprises Jessica in her hotel room, and they have a very sweet reunion. I hope this doesn’t end badly.

Tara and Eggs go on a water heater pump rescue mission to appease Maryann’s completely bitchy reaction to the house’s old one breaking. While on the road Eggs has a very strong deja vu moment that causes him to go wandering down a road he says he’s never seen but can navigate with ease. His trek leads him to a ritual sacrifice-looking site where he senses he witnessed some very bad things go down. They return to find the house trashed and Maryann hosting a giant orgy in Sookie’s backyard. An orgy in which Arlene and Terry are participating! They witness Maryann’s obvious instigator role (and no doubt notice that the site they happened upon earlier looked just like this) but can’t help but join in. It’s like some sort of group forced rape, and it’s icky. Cut it out, Maryann.

Sam must have listened to my pleading, because he finally asks Daphne about her scars! She doesn’t know what happened, she says just got jumped in the woods. Daphne then encourages Sam to tell his loved ones about his shapeshifter status, as all her friends and family know about her. While frolicking in the woods together later, Daphne turns into a very familiar pig and catches the eye of Andy, who recognizes her and chases her through the woods. (Andy running through the woods yelling “PIG!” was the comedy highlight of my Sunday, by the way.) Sam questions her on why it seemed Andy knew her in pig form, and she slyly distracts him with sexual favors. She then leads him to the edge of the orgy, where several of Maryann’s black-eyed followers drag him towards all the sex-having. That’s when Maryann puts on the bull’s head, starts chanting, and everything goes to black as we listen to Sam scream. Finally, things are starting to get good!


Random thoughts:

  • I simultaneously like and hate the vamp necessity of “claiming” their humans amongst other vamps. This love/hate relationship is mostly because of how stupid the vamps sound when they are claiming someone. It makes me giggle.
  • Bill’s combination French/Southern accent in the flashback was sort of hilarious. He sings like an angel, though. Is that Stephen Moyer’s real voice? If so, very nice, Steve.
  • I loved the scene when Sookie and Hugo first meet the Reverend and his wife. Anna Paquin played that perfectly, and the actor playing Reverend Newlin was quite awesome as well.
  • For all of you spoiler-hounds, don’t forget to check out our Live Blog and an awesome trailer from Comic-Con!

Favorite quotes:

  • “Baby? I’m over a thousand years old.” - Eric
  • “I considered booking you in the room adjoining theirs but I thought that might be a bit…over the top.” - Eric, to Lorena
  • “I don’t know what to tell you. I wish I had a fancier crib for you to squat in, but I don’t.” - Tara, to Maryann
  • “All of ‘em put together ain’t half as bad as if you do it to a vampire. Or to a dude. Or a vampire dude. That’s, like, cream de la cream [sic] of sin, no repentance for that. Straight to hell, baby.” - Luke, on sex outside of marriage
  • “Stupid f***ing pig.” - Andy
  • “I’m so happy I could cry but I don’t wanna because it’s really gross when I do.” - Jessica

‘True Blood’: Sex on fire

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

True Blood” has always made no apologies for playing up the more seductive side of vampirism, but this week almost the entire cast gets into the game, leaving us with one sexy hour of human, vampire, shapeshifter and even fundamentalist fun.

Once again the show picks up right where we left off last week, with Sam playing dumb with Daphne re: his shapeshifter status. Lucky for him, she turns out to be a shapeshifter too! Ah, supernatural love. They proceed to spend the rest of the episode alternately getting it on and swapping shapeshifter secrets. When will Sam notice the claw marks on her back? Considering how much time they spend in the buff, I’m thinking quite soon.

In Dallas, Sookie chases Barry the telepathic bellboy down but he refuses to talk to her about their mutual gift for fear of what could happen if the ruthless Dallas vamps found out. Sookie offers to teach him how to control his telepathy, but he ends up quitting this job and disappearing to escape her scrutiny.

Sookie, Bill and Eric meet with the local vampires to discuss the Fellowship of the Sun their potential ties to Godric’s abduction. The Dallas vamps want to raze the entire operation, but Eric and Bill disagree. Sookie offers to infiltrate the Fellowship of the Sun in order to find out who abducted Godric. Eric demands it to happen despite Bill’s protests, and we learn via flashback that the reason Eric is so determined to find Godric because Godric was his maker. While Bill and Sookie are saying their horizontal goodbyes back at the hotel, a mysterious female vampire roams the hallway outside their room, obviously looking for them. Is this mysterious vamp Bill’s maker? I can’t tell (she looks different, but that is probably because of dress/makeup) but if it is her that will definitely cause some trouble!

Jason begins God boot camp and shows leadership potential, which the Reverend picks up on. Sarah starts to resent her husband cutting her out of the decision making process with the Fellowship and decides starting an affair with Jason is the best way to get back at him. Jason tries to do the right thing and resist her advances but in the end does what we all expect him to and gives in. You know what they say about leopards and spots…

Tara wakes up from her night of debauchery with Eggs and finds Maryann in Sookie’s kitchen making breakfast. Maryann says she and Carl need to stay at Sookie’s now because the house she was living in before wasn’t hers and the owner is back. Tara tells her she can’t move in, and finally starts asking questions about what the history is between Maryann, Carl and Eggs. Unfortunately she doesn’t get any satisfactory answers. Maryann decides to use her powers for definite evil in retaliation, sitting outside Merlotte’s and causing absolute chaos for the workers and patrons inside the bar, and then being a calm support to Tara when she gets home. Tara has a change of heart and says she will ask Sookie if they all can live in the house together. I’m sure this will turn out well! Also, Gran is rolling in her grave right now, I am sure.

Lafayette finally comes back to Merlotte’s and stoically asks for his job back. Sam reads him the riot act for disappearing, and Lafayette doesn’t put up a fight or talk back but simply sits there quietly until Sam lets him return to work. I’m as worried as Sam is about this new, subdued, polite Lafayette.


Random thoughts:

  • Loved Terry’s “Good party!” to Sam and subsequent carrying of Arlene into the forest for some action.
  • I am really, really not enjoying this Soldiers of the Sun storyline. It sort of feels like it comes from a different show.
  • Bill sure has a lot of self-hatred for his race. (Species?) I know a “good” vampire is supposed to be a little self-loathing, but come on Bill. Your kind aren’t all bad, for cold-blooded killers.
  • Eric’s flashback was very “Let the Right One In,” with the speaking in Swedish (I think?) and the young, pretty male vampire.
  • Maryann and Eggs forcing themselves into Sookie’s house (with Maryann playing little Ms. Homemaker in one of Gran’s old aprons) immediately after Tara and Eggs had sex made me go to a very “Rosemary’s Baby” place. That’s kind of an obvious story, so I desperately hope I am wrong.
  • Hoyt and Jessica’s chaste phone flirtation was a very cute counterpoint to all of the more lurid things happening in the episode. Darn it, I want those kids to make things work!

Favorite quotes:

  • “You are going to be so sorry when I get an eating disorder.” - Jessica
  • “What are you, nomads? F***ing Bedouins?” – Tara
  • “Do you know what I think? I think that after all your trials, heartache and pain, God wants you to have a reward. Let me reward you, Jason. Let me help you find your way back to joy.” - Sarah right before, well, giving Jason some joy

Odds and ends:

  • I love that Alice and Henry both agreed that Henry should go to Bologna to get “trained.” You know you loved it too. Those two are still my favorite characters (save Reverend Stone) on the show.
  • What is up with Adrian’s need for the house next to Amy so that she can be with Ricky? Holy mackerel, that girl has a one track mind and it’s definitely on the wrong track.
  • I can’t even touch on the idiocy of David’s idea of ditching Amy and John and moving out of town. Idiocy. Complete idiocy.

‘True Blood’: Soldier boy

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

This week on “True Blood,” Jason becomes a solider of God, Sookie meets someone just like her, Tara has a wild party and Eric wears a tank top. I’ll let you all guess which of those things I was the most interested in watching.

In the teaser this week, Jason gets pranked by his fellow cultists into believing his bunk mates were slaughtered by vampires. It’s just like a fraternity house, but with more Jesus! Jason spends the rest of the episode arguing about who in the Bible was the first vampire (discussed: Lazarus, Cain, Jesus, and Eve), having vampire target practice with the Reverend, and seriously coveting the Reverend’s wife. The Reverend and his wife invite Jason to be a part of “the Soldiers of the Son,” which basically sounds like a cult-within-a-cult. This requires he stay in the Reverend and Sarah’s house. Yeah. This isn’t going to end well.

After the credits, we jump right back where we left off last week with Bill playing interruptus to Hoyt and Jessica’s coitus. He orders Hoyt out of the house and is generally unreasonable in that stubborn Bill way, until Sookie makes him see that he needs to be more gentle with Jessica and really show her what being a vampire can be. She convinces him to take Jessica along on their Dallas trip. When they arrive, some funny business goes on with the driver and Bill figures out he was hired to abduct Sookie. Jessica gets some glamour practice on the limo driver and goes a little overboard, but Bill manages to learn that the Fellowship of the Son hired the limo driver to abduct Sookie and bring her to their church. Bill and Eric meet to discuss the church’s involvement, and Eric says that if they don’t find Godrick soon the vampires in his region are planning to start openly attacking humans in retaliation. When Bill questions the rationality of this move, Eric’s only reply is, “Well, this is Texas.” Ha! Back in the room, bellman Barry shows up with a tasty midnight snack for Jessica. More than that, however, Barry brings his own gift of mind reading to Sookie. Awesome! When they realize they are reading each other’s minds, Barry takes off running, with Sookie not far behind. Come back, Barry! I’m interested in this story development!

Tara tells Maryann she’s moving in with Sookie. Maryann acts supportive, but I doubt that will last. She shows her support by throwing Tara a wild birthday party at Sookie’s house. As with all of Maryann’s parties, she does some chanting and some vibrating, which the party goers (especially Tara and Eggs) seem to enjoy, all up until the point where things start to get just a little bit out of control…which is when Maryann reveals her creepy claws. I want to know more! Enough with the slow burn on this storyline, Alan Ball!

As we saw last week, Sam and Daphne do some skinny dipping and some male/female bonding. The next morning, Sookie finds out Sam is planning to leave town without telling her and reads him the riot act, apologizing for leading him on and making all kinds of excuses for being kind of wishy washy last season, but Sam doesn’t want to hear it. Sam drowns his sorrows by making out with Daphne at Tara’s party, where Daphne reveals that she knows “what Sam really is.” Eeeenteresting.

The Sheriff and the coroner are still stumped over what killed Tara’s exorcist. Andy tells the Sheriff about seeing the pig (the same pig that Tara saw when her car ran off the road). Obviously, Andy sounds like a crazy drunk, so the Sheriff assumes he is a crazy drunk and takes away his badge. In the Sheriff’s defense, Andy has totally been a crazy drunk lately. Here’s predicting Andy is the only one who figures out what Maryann is really up to but can’t get anyone to believe him.

Tara visits Lafayette and he pretty much gives her the blow-off, preferring to let his body heal on its own. He is sitting on the couch feeling sorry for himself when Eric shows up at his window and offers to give him his blood to heal his gunshot wound. Lafayette correctly guesses that Eric just wants him to drink his blood so he can track him in the future, and Eric admits that since Lafayette is so important to Sookie he wants to keep tabs on him. Eric’s obsession with Sookie is leading to something, but I can’t quite figure out what yet. Any of you have any (non-book spoiler) guesses?


Random thoughts:

  • Arlene’s little giggle at Daphne’s complaint about working hard was hilarious.
  • Tara’s birthday tears and confession to Eggs about always crying on her birthday was probably supposed to be heart wrenching and character-illuminating, but I found it quite a tired cliche. They’ve tried to give Tara more depth, but this took her character back about 100 paces for me.
  • Bill threatening the limo driver (Hank from Breaking Bad!) was AWESOME. That was the first time I’ve ever thought Stephen Moyer really pulled off the fine line between cheesy awesomeness and true menace that being a TV vampire requires.
  • I vote Eric sits around in a black tank top baring his forearms more often. Anyone with me on this?

Favorite quotes:

  • “Are you going to leave, or am I going to have to throw you out? Through a window. That is closed!” - Bill, to Hoyt
  • “Bill, that is just rude.” - Sookie, in response
  • “Is it my fault my fangs come out when I get turned on?” - Jessica
  • “I am a vampire, I’m supposed to be tormented.” - Bill
  • “I’ll need to call the airlines to arrange for two travel coffins instead of just one.” – Bill
  • “Maybe Jesus was the first vampire. I mean, he rose from the dead, too. He told people ‘Hey y’all, drink my blood. It will give you special powers.’” - Jason
  • “Evil is making the premeditated choice to be a dick.” - Jason
  • “I’ve always love these, they’re like booze for dolls. They gave me ten!” - Sookie, holding an airplane-sized vodka bottle

Beyond Here Lies Nothin – Airing September 13, 2009 Season Finale

Meanwhile, Sophie-Anne warns Eric to keep the lid on Bill’s inquisitiveness; Jason leads Andy into the heroic abyss; and Hoyt has a hard time swallowing Maxine’s endless stream of insults. Deliberating on what may be his final move to save Sookie and the town, Sam is forced to put his trust, and his life, in a most unlikely ally. (Michael Ausiello)

In the final episodes of this season, you’ll see a very interesting division take place among the characters. Pay attention to those for whom supernatural events are not quite as super. They are different, and their differences will be explored in future seasons. (TV Guide)

Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette Reynold) revealed some interesting information about the radiating light that appeared from Sookie’s hand: “Well, I read the books, so I think she’s part fairy. That was her fairy power.” According to Rutina Wesley (Tara Thornton), “[Sookie's power] is a funky little thing,” but she also says the show won’t answer that question for certain any time in season two.” (TrueBloodNet)

When asked who is going to help Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) out of trouble, Tara Buck, who plays Fangtasia waitress Ginger said: “We’ve got Sam (Sam Trammell) running from Maryann (Michelle Forbes), and he may actually…” Tara wants to keep her job, so she couldn’t say everything, but he may actually seek refuge with Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård) and Pam (Kristin Bauer) at Fangtasia in Shreveport, La. (TrueBloodNet)

Carrie Preston (Arlene Fowler) was asked if Arlene and Terry are going to stay together. She said: “When you’re possessed on the show, the next day, you don’t remember. So they can start over—like a reset, a reboot. I think Arlene is constantly searching for the perfect man, and maybe he’s going to be the one. I don’t know.” (TrueBloodNet)

General Spoilers

True Blood star Ryan Kwanten tells us that Jason Stackhouse and his sister, Sookie, won’t be separated forever: “There will be [a reunion between the Stackhouse siblings] and quite an electric one, too, where we gang up for the greater good.”

We’ve been waiting patiently for this mysterious vampire-of-all-vampires too, and the wait is almost over. Godric (Allan Hyde) pops up in the July 19 episode, along with his lieutenants Stan (Eureka‘s Ed Quinn) and Isabel (Valerie Cruz). Valerie tells us, “Isabel runs with the Dallas vampires, but she kind of becomes friends with both Bill and Eric. And she likes Sookie. [Isabel] has a penchant for humans, and she’s sensitive to this love story they have.”

Carrie Preston, who plays Arlene, says, “The second-season finale is only two weeks after the end of the first season. Things get crazy in Bon Temps, Louisiana, I’ll tell you that.” Wait, Arlene doesn’t die, does she? “Not so far!” Source: Kristin on E!Online

General Spoilers

Next week on True Blood, when poor dead zombie Daphne’s (Ashley Jones) body is discovered, people start to suspect that Sam (Sam Trammell) killed her. (Watch With Kristin)

Sookie and Eric grow closer over the next few episodes, after he is injured and needs her help. (Watch With Kristin)

Alexander Skarsgård talking about his character: “Eric was kind of misunderstood. A lot of people would come up to me and say, ‘Oh, you’re the evil…the bad guy.’ I always had to defend him because there’s more to him than that,” says Alexander. “I actually got a chance to show that [this season]. I mean, he is a badass, of course, but I’m just happy because as an actor, you shouldn’t play the same note for two years. You have to show different layers and go deeper and show that there’s more to the character than that. And I’ve had fun this season because I have been able to show that he does have a sensitive side, a loyal side. He doesn’t care for a lot of people, and not for a lot of vampires either, but the ones he cares about he’s very, very, very loyal and devoted to.” (Watch With Kristin)

The Secret Life of the American Teenager Season 2 Premiere Recap “The Big One”

‘The Secret Life of the American Teenager’: Someone else is pregnant

Shailenewoodley_secretlifeoftheamericanteenager_s3_290 Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

When we last left “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” our pregnant teenage hero was no longer pregnant, having given birth to a beautiful bundle of joy. She’d also secured the cushiest part-time job ever at a church-run daycare. The daycare would not only pay her, but watch the little one for free and was also going to give her health insurance. I had no idea that being a teenage mom was quite so easy, but what I did know was that with the start of a new season, life was about to throw Amy Juergens a few more curveballs.

We saw immediately that Amy hasn’t been having it all that easy with John – even with help, taking care of an infant isn’t simple. It was nice to see that while the show went fantasy on the part-time job with full benefits thing, they’re not completely glossing over the hardships of parenthood.

At the end of last season, we all sort of suspected that Anne might find herself with child this season, and before the opening credits, Amy had the same suspicion. Thank goodness they didn’t make us wait to find out the truth there (and I’m going to tell you right now, which isn’t a spoiler because this is a recap of the show, heck, I might even tell you more important things later), Anne is in fact pregnant. Of course, that left us with the ultimate question – George or David?

I’m hoping for George. I know that his relationship with Anne is on the skids what with the divorce and all, but I’m still hoping that they work it out. Yes, George claimed that he’s been “neutered,” but I’m not convinced that’s true and even if it was, those things don’t always work.

Think about how good it would be for Amy if the new kid was George’s. If George and Anne get back together they could move in together which would allow Amy to live in the other house right next door. I don’t think George and Anne should just let her have the house, some sort of payment schedule ought to exist, but it would be another step towards adulthood for Amy, and that’s never a bad thing.

As for Grace and Jack, they jumped into the whole sex thing, awfully quickly, didn’t they? The relationship was obviously headed in that direction, but I thought the deed would occur much later in the season. Clearly though, with Grace’s dad dying in a plane crash as she was having sex, Grace is not going to be doing it again anytime soon.

The other surprise with Grace wanting to have sex with Jack was Adrian stopping them during their initial attempt. I definitely didn’t see that coming. I know that Adrian from time to time comes up with good ideas, but after last season’s Max thing I didn’t think her good ideas were ever in the sex department.

Even if you think I’m wrong with Max, what about her wanting to have sex with Ricky tonight despite her dad being right in the living room? The girl has a weird relationship with sex and to hear good advice in that area come out of her mouth was surprising.

Bits and pieces:

  • What do you make of The Sausage King’s new woman, Betty? Is she just after him because he’s the king or is there more to it? There’s no way Leo’s paying for those dates, right (wouldn’t Betty have provided her own condom if Leo was paying)?
  • Next question — Ben, Ricky, and Amy… do you think Ricky still has any designs on Amy or was he offering to stay the night simply out of the goodness of his heart? Tell me goodness of his heart, please tell me goodness of his heart. I don’t believe it, but I’m hoping.

‘True Blood’ Season 2 Premiere Recap

‘True Blood’: Season 2 premiere

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

True Blood” returned from a long hiatus tonight with a jam-packed episode that set a number of new things in motion for the upcoming season. If you’re like me, however, you’re only tuning in for one reason: to find out what the heck happened to Lafayette!

Season two picks up right where we left off last year, with Sookie and Tara discovering a dead body in Andy’s car behind Merlotte’s. A dead body that looked suspiciously like Lafayette. Andy checks out the body and — it isn’t Lafayette! Hallelujah! Quite honestly, I just don’t want to watch a “True Blood” without my favorite flamboyant cook.

Now that we’ve got that piece of business out of the way, let’s do a rundown on where everyone else stands this season:

Tara
The news that the dead body isn’t Lafayette is great for Tara because it means her cousin isn’t dead, but what’s not so great is that instead the body is her fraud voodoo exorcist. Furthermore, the exorcist’s heart was brutally ripped out of her body, seemingly while she was still alive by the look of sheer terror on her face. Awesomely gruesome. Tara tells the cops her connection to the dead woman and, more importantly, tells her mother the truth about her exorcism. The mysterious (and definitely evil…right?) Maryann shows up to take Tara home and in the process reams Tara’s mother something fierce for being a generally terrible person. It’s not that Tara’s mother doesn’t deserve it, but darn. That was harsh.

Bill
Bill, on the other hand, is dealing with frightening matters of his own: Jessica, the truly annoying vampire he turned last season. Amusingly, he has two main house rules: no hunting humans, and please recycle all your glass and paper products. I suppose if you know you’re going to live forever you would want to practice conservation. Let’s face it, he IS future generations. When Sookie shows up at Bill’s and discovers Jessica there, Bill must explain the whole ordeal that led to Jessica’s turning. Sookie isn’t jazzed to lean that she is basically the cause of this entire mess, but most of all she’s angry that it took him two weeks to tell her about it.

Sookie
Sookie finally learns that sleazy Uncle Bartlett is dead and immediately suspects Bill as the murderer (and rightfully so). She inherits all of her uncle’s money but doesn’t even want anything to do with it, giving the lot to Jason. When she confronts Bill about the murder, he admits right away that he killed him. Sookie can’t handle feeling like she’s responsible for yet another murder (unlike Rene, indirectly this time) but when she goes to leave Bill pulls out the “I love you” card and they make up. Repeatedly. If you know what I mean.

Jason
Jason is busy finding God and declaring himself “saved” by the Fellowship of the Sun. He even says their book made him think, and Jason Stackhouse thinking is a scary thing, y’all. He meets the leader of the church, a Reverend who invites him to a leadership conference in order to deepen his faith. A leadership conference that costs $1200. Getting saved is expensive! Lucky for Jason he just came into a little money, eh? When Hoyt learns of Jason’s new endeavor and questions the church’s motives, especially those teaching people to hate vampires, Jason completely misses the point and says that the church is more than the hate. But Jason, if the hate is part of the church doesn’t that sort of negate all of the other stuff? Oh, dear.

Lafayette
My boy Lafayette has been located and although I’m sure he’s happy not to be the dead woman with her heart ripped out, the situation is not good. He and several other humans are trapped in Bon Temps’ very own version of “Saw,” complete with weird torture wheel! They spin the wheel why? I don’t know. Maybe they need exercise. He’s trapped there with one of the jerks from last season who refused to eat an AIDS burger, because being mysteriously kidnapped and held against your will obviously isn’t torture enough. The homophobic dude’s apology to Lafayette for being a homophobic dude and heartfelt confession that he once let another guy blow him is priceless. Turns out the captor is none other than Eric (Eric!) and he’s looking for information on crimes against vampires, and torturing humans in the know to get it. Don’t mess with Eric, fools, he’ll mess you up! And look extremely hot while doing it.

Sam
Sam expounds on his implied history with Maryann from last season via flashback, where we learn that she once busted a young shapeshifting Sam breaking into her house. As a punishment, she cougar-izes him in her bedroom. I would be happy for our young robber but the sheer weirdness of the encounter skeeves me out — the woman (thing?) VIBRATES and basically is in about four places at once during, um, completion. What exactly is her power? Whatever it is, it’s not benign, that’s for sure. Frustratingly, even though she and Sam have a confrontation in the present we learn nothing new about her or her motives. What is that witchy woman up to?

Random thoughts:

  • Is Tara’s new man legit or just a larger part of whatever Maryann is trying to accomplish? Considering the bitch slap Carl got for interrupting their kiss, I’m thinking he’s part of the plan. I’m still not sure if he’s in on it or just another patsy like Tara, however.
  • The pan to the sky and the thankful look on Jason’s face when he gets the money is pure hilarity. Ryan Kwanten really sells Jason’s naivete well.
  • Sookie and Bill’s back and forth was enough to make someone seasick this week. First she forgives him, then she takes it back when she learns about Jessica. Then she forgives him again, but takes it back when she learns about Uncle Bartlett, and immediately forgives him again when he tells her he loves her. I cannot keep up with this flip-flopping. They’re worse than Dawson and Joey.
  • Tie for favorite secondary character: Hoyt Fortenberry and Terry Bellefleur. When Terry smelled Arlene’s hair I nearly lost it, and Hoyt’s hesitation around females is just too funny.

True-Blood-Nelsan-Ellis_l WARNING: Stop reading if you have not watched the season premiere of True Blood. I mean it. Everyone else, onward and downward…

Now that you’ve seen the season 2 premiere of True Blood, join me in a chorus of “Hallelujah, Lafayette lives!” Although last November’s cliff-hanger seemed to suggest that series creator Alan Ball was remaining faithful to Charlaine Harris’ books and sending Nelsan Ellis’ fierce, flamboyant alter ego to an early grave, Sunday’s debut confirmed what many fans had hoped: Ball decided to spare the wildly popular character. But why? In this exclusive interview, Ellis has the surprising answer to that question, as well as scoop on another possible detour Ball has up his sleeve — this one involving a deep connection between Lafayette and Alexander Skarsgard’s Eric.

When you first signed on to the show, did Alan Ball assure you he would not be following the books when it came to this character?
NELSAN ELLIS: No, no no. When I first started it was only a one-year contract, so I thought I was a goner after the 12th episode. In fact, [Alan] didn’t tell me that he was bringing me back until after the table read for [the season 1 finale]. He was like, “You know we’re not killing you, right?” And I was like, “I didn’t know but thanks for telling me.”

What was your reaction?
ELLIS: Thank you! I have a job for next season! That was my reaction.

Did he explain to you why he let Lafayette survive?
ELLIS: Not really. He just said he decided after the bar scene in [the pilot], but he didn’t tell me until the 12th episode. He didn’t really go into any detail as to why he decided to keep me — not to me anyway.

When did you realize the character was gaining a large following?
ELLIS: I’m beginning to realize it now. At first I didn’t. I am realizing more and more that people have seemed to respond well to Lafayette, much to my surprise.

Why are you surprised?
ELLIS: Well, because I would not know what to do with Lafayette or what to think about him.

Was it hard keeping his fate a secret during the hiatus?
ELLIS: It was hard. The question was asked every single day.

How will the experience of being locked in a dungeon and almost dying change Lafayette this season?
ELLIS: It certainly humbles him. It shows him there are some situations he just can’t get himself out of no matter how slick he is. He’s going to have to suffer the consequences of what he’s done. And I think he reflects back on his behavior and maybe for a second thinks about changing.

In an upcoming episode [SPOILER ALERT], Lafayette ingests a lot of Eric’s blood. The homoeroticism in that moment was off the charts. Was that something you were conscious of while shooting it?
ELLIS: I wasn’t. I know Alexander said that from his standpoint he thinks Eric is a little drawn to Lafayette. My intentions were that I was completely terrified of Eric and what he can do to me. As far as I know, I hated his guts. It’s funny what the camera picks up… Alan has been making jokes about me and Eric and what’s to come in the third season. I definitely think I’ll be one of his henchmen, but as far down the rabbit hole as that goes, I don’t know.

So we can assume that Lafayette does, in fact, survive to see a third season?
ELLIS: I think I’m back for the third season.

Do you think it’s possible for Lafayette to settle down and have a normal relationship with a guy?
ELLIS: I don’t know that his normal is the general norm for everybody. I don’t think he’ll ever be normal to everybody’s standards. I do hope, though, that the dude can find someone that he loves and that loves him back. Everybody should be capable of that — even Lafayette. (Additional reporting by Jeremy Medina)

‘True Blood’: You Ask, I Answer on Lafayette’s fate, ‘True’ love lives & more

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Any scoop on summer scripted shows like “True Blood”? They seem to be dragging out Lafayette’s fate. I guess the next episode we get somewhere finally?
Um, sort of. Seems to me Lafayette wasn’t made a Vampire, since he will end up drinking Eric’s blood in order to heal his wounds… but I’m still not super clear on the whole Vampire deal. Do Vamp’s ever suck on each other for strength? What I know for sure is that Eric’s blood brings our boy Lafayette back to fighting form. We’ll see the happy-go-lucky guy we loved last season once again.

What’s up with Eggs and Tara? Is it over? Ha, oh hells no.

I love the idea of Hoyt and Jessica on “True Blood”! Hoyt loves the idea too. Jessica’s into it as well, but I don’t think she’s exactly a one man kind of vampiress… not just yet anyway.

Am I imagining the overwhelming sexual tension between Jason Stackhouse and the preacher’s wife on “True Blood”? Is something going to happen with that? No to the former. Yes to the latter. Keep watching, you’re not waiting for nothing.

Sookie and Eric! Is Alan Ball going to completely ignore that storyline from the book series? Nope. When I spoke to Stephen Moyer about what’s coming up with S&E, he got a little jealous. I think he was joking… for the most part.

I read on Twitter that you weren’t a big fan of last week’s “True Blood” episode. It was a little disappointing compared to the first two. No worries, they step it back up this coming Sunday…

Psyched for what’s on tap? Anything specific you’re hoping to see this season?

Oh, I keep forgetting to show you guys a photo of the SAG Foundation’s “True Blood” event with Stephen Moyer, which I moderated a couple weeks ago. Great guy. Anna Paquin‘s a lucky girl. He looks hot with a little color in his face, no?

How weird is True Blood going to get this season?

Think True Blood is getting weird with that teenage vampire “intern” or the underground cells? It’s only going to get weirder, according to Carrie Preston, who plays Arlene Fowler on the show. Explicit violence and nudity are nothing compared to what’s in store for season two.

“It gets more bizarre,” Preston said in an exclusive interview last week in Burbank, Calif., where she represented the show for its Saturn Award nomination (it didn’t win). “Like, truly dark and bizarre. It was pretty explicit last year, but I guess they have to go somewhere from last season.”

So far in the first two episodes of the season, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is trying to make peace with Bill’s (Stephen Moyer) commitment to the new vamplette, and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) is trying religious abstinence camp. Preston told fans to expect even bigger surprises.

“Oh, my gosh, you’re going to see characters do things that you would never expect them to do,” she said. “You’re going to see them do things they would never expect themselves to do. It goes to a pretty crazy place.”

As for Arlene’s crazy character shifts, “You’ll just have to wait and see. Let’s just say there are some things that are beyond her control.”

True Blood debuted last year and became HBO’s newest hit. Based on the novels by Charlaine Harris, the series began with the conflict of a telepathic girl trying to date a vampire in a world where synthetic blood permits “safe” interactions between vampires and humans. After developing all its supporting characters and story arcs, Preston said that work on season two has felt as though it is on a surer footing.

“It’s just much more exciting,” Preston said. “There’s a relaxed feeling. We all know that we’re kind of in it now, and people are liking what we’re doing, so we can feel free to keep doing what we’re doing, because apparently it’s working.”

Evan Rachel Wood joins the cast at the end of the season as the lesbian vampire queen of Louisiana. Arlene will not get to encounter Wood just yet. “Mm-mm, I don’t have any scenes with her, so I haven’t met her, but she’s shooting right now. We’re shooting the final episode right now.”

When does Evan Rachel Wood show up as the queen on True Blood? We have to wait a bit to see Evan Rachel Wood as True Blood‘s 400-year-old lesbian vampire queen Sophie-Anne. She’s slated to appear in episodes 11 and 12 on Aug. 30 and Sept. 6, respectively, and sources tell us, “She may appear in future episodes next season.” Source: Kristin on E!Online

What happens with Lafayette on True Blood? This Sunday, Sookie (Anna Paquin) discovers that Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) has been keeping Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) in his basement and freaks out on him. Naturally. In exchange for Lafayette’s release, Sookie agrees to head to Dallas to find some missing vampires. She doesn’t end up going alone: Bill and Jessica accompany her. Source: Kristin on E!Online

What else can you tell us about the new supernatural creature that appears on True Blood this season? We can tell you that the creature appears in the June 28 episode and brutally attacks Sookie (Anna Paquin). It’s got a bull head, a half animal, half human body, gnarly claws and is poisonous like a Komodo dragon. And it almost kills Sookie. But Eric and Bill (Stephen Moyer) team to help make her as good as new. Oh, and we soon find out the murdered voodoo lady from the first episode of the season was a victim of this same creature. Source: Kristin on E!Online

Seriously, is Lafayette dead on True Blood? We now know the correct answer to this question—and seriously, we can’t tell you! Argh. (All will be revealed Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO, when True Blood‘s second season premieres!) However, because we like to push our luck, we will offer you this new Spoiler Chat feature in consolation: The Clue That Helps Only One Person. Attention Lindsey O. (formerly of Illinois): The person who sat next to us that day we had lunch at the Farm in Beverly Hills is the person whose body is in the backseat of the car on True Blood. Don’t tell anybody what you know, though, or it wouldn’t be the Clue That Helps Only One Person anymore, now would it? BTW, if you’re a Blood fan and you haven’t picked it up yet, the official True Blood soundtrack features Louisiana artists like Lucinda Williams, Allen Toussaint and C.C. Adcock, and it is sooo good.

Talk to me about True Blood! I am so excited! We just caught up with Evan Rachel Wood, who’s promoting her role in Woody Allen‘s Whatever Works, and she tells us this about her vampire queen True Blood character: “Sophie is half Patrick Bateman, half Paris Hilton. She loves to tell people what to do—like, she could tell Bill to go play Yahtzee or something—but she’s not going to sleep with him, because she likes the ladies.” Source: Kristin on E!Online

The season premiere (airing Sunday, June 14, 9 pm/ET) picks up right where we left off, the victim’s identity is revealed in short order. As you might have already guessed, Season 2’s first casualty is related to Tara, but not in a way that you will guess. At first blush, the significance of said death will not be apparent, but just wait! Also, a minor character’s drinking problem will resurface. (TV Guide)

In the season’s first four episodes, there are no less than three orgies, powered by Maryann’s aphrodisiac fairy dust. The Nordic vampire Eric gets into a very homoerotic encounter with either Jason or Eggs, and both of those characters spend a lot of time shirtless. Sookie has a very revealing conversation with a new character in episode four. And Merlotte’s newest waitress (Ashley Jones) harbors a secret, and a clue lurks on her skin. (Michael Ausiello)

Even better, he thinks Lafayette will even survive until season 3. Whether the dungeon imprisonment by Eric will bring a great effect to Lafayette, Ellis shares, “It certainly humbles him.

HIT HBO SERIES TRUE BLOOD KICKS OFF SECOND SEASON JUNE 14

In the backwoods Louisiana town of Bon Temps, the mystery surrounding the serial killer has finally been solved. But just as things are settling down, deadly new twists threaten Sookie Stackhouse and everyone around her.

Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, the show takes place in the not-too-distant future, when vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source. The show follows the romance between waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, and her soul mate, 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). Alan Ball (creator of the Emmy®-winning HBO series “Six Feet Under”) created and executive produces the show, which is based on the best-selling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.

In the new season’s fourth episode, Sookie, Bill and their adoptive vamp Jessica wing it to Dallas, but there’s a surprise waiting for them at the airport. Later in the episode, an even bigger shock awaits Sookie when a special visitor drops by her hotel room. (Michael Ausiello)

Something happens in the first four episodes that may lead one to believe Eric has eyes for someone else. (Michael Ausiello)

“Everything gets deeper,” creator Alan Ball says. “Everything gets more intense. It’s a lot scarier. It’s sexier. It’s just really, really fun. I feel like each season is a novel, and the episodes are just chapters. Especially the way our show is. The episodes are not self-contained. You know, you gotta be involved in the story, and you gotta know what’s going on.” True Blood’s second season begins June 14 in its Sunday 9 p.m. ET/PT timeslot. The season is based loosely on the second book in Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse Series, Living Dead in Dallas, Ball said. (SciFi Wire)

“Sookie [Anna Paquin] and Bill [Stephen Moyer] will go to Dallas to help find a missing vampire who is the sheriff of the Dallas area,” Ball said. “And Jason [Ryan Kwanten] is going to become involved in the Fellowship of the Sun Church in a way that is really surprising. … There’s a very interesting relationship in the show between Rev. Steve Newland of the Fellowship of the Sun Church and his wife, Sarah [Anna Camp], and Jason, that just took on its own life as we were shooting, and it’s hilarious. I can’t get enough of the Newlands and Jason together.” (SciFi Wire)

And Sookie’s hometown of Bon Temps will have some drama as well when Maryann Forrester, played by Michelle Forbes, “begins stirring up all kinds of trouble,” Ball said. Last season Maryann appeared to offer Tara (Rutina Wesley) some goodwill and a place to stay. But “she’s got an agenda, and it’s not a good one,” Ball said. (SciFi Wire)

While Ball plans on incorporating many elements from the book, he admits he’s taken liberties. He’s expanded several of the characters’ stories and added more of an African-American presence. And one thing you won’t see in True Blood is Elvis, a character who ends up helping Sookie out in many of her adventures in the books. In the novel series, the real Elvis gets turned into a vampire; however, the process leaves him different. Elvis becomes Bubba, a slightly touched vampire whom the vampire community takes care of. “We are not going to meet him,” Ball said. “I just couldn’t figure out a way to do it that would not be cheesy. I mean, not that it is in the books. It’s great, because you can imagine that it’s him. … But the only way to do it [on screen] is to have some Elvis impersonator, and it just wouldn’t [be] the same.” (SciFi Wire)

True Blood – Stephen Moyer Interview

Is it possible that Twilight is only the second-most-romantic vampire saga of the moment?

Being on premium cable as they are, True Blood’s Sookie and Bill certainly give virginal Edward and Bella a run for their money when it comes to blood-hot sex, but what about love?

We just spoke exclusively with True Blood’s leading man, Stephen Moyer, aka Bill Compton himself, to find out what’s in store for the vampires of the dirty, dirty South in season two. He told us that while there will be just as many near-pornographic sex scenes, his character is still primarily driven by an overiding morality and an abiding passion for Sookie Stackhouse.

Read on to find out what he told us about sex scenes, his “hideous” vampire daughter and falling in love with Anna Paquin, onscreen and off…

Is True Blood going to stay as explicitly sexual this season or will you dial that back a bit?

The show is ridiculously f–king sexy…I think Alan Ball and the writers do very well in pushing the envelope. I think one of the things that drives me nuts about society is that you can watch hours about terrorists but you can’t look at a human nipple. What the f–k is that about? Sex is part of our lives. It’s part of our existence. So I kind of embrace the fact that we hit it full on the head.

What you think of Bill as a person, are you more interested in him as a vampire or as a personality?
There’s no getting away from the fact that Bill is a vampire. He can’t wish to be anything else, because he’s a vampire, but he’s a vampire who wants to live a human life. Actually, in fact, he wishes not for a human life, but for a moral life. It’s not that he doesn’t want to feed on blood, it’s that he doesn’t want it to involve killing—but in his first season he kills as many people as the murderer. That was something that was very present in our minds. He has that blood lust, he has that very strong sense of right and wrong. If somebody f–s him off, he’s going to take them out. He’s torn. He’s not going to do it just for the sake of it. But if somebody hurts him or hurts his family or hurts his loved one…they’re history. [Chuckles]. I like that.

What kind of arc can we expect for Bill and Sookie this season?
I think that they love each other more than they have loved anything ever. Speaking from Bill’s point of view, she’s given him reason to live again.

Does your relationship with Anna [Paquin] make it more or less difficult to do emotionally awkward scenes between Sookie and Bill, like when she and Sam got together last season and Bill walked in on them?
Anna and I met on this show. We met doing the job. And so the crew has seen us grow together. They have seen our relationship grow by watching us on set. Now you know, we kept it from them to begin with. You know, it was very…we wanted to keep it private. We didn’t want people to think we were f–king with their lives with something fickle. But honestly, there’s no one I’d rather work with. I really mean it. I love working with her, and that’s how it all started, by falling in love on camera…So, last year, Sam had his stuff coming up with Anna and at that point nobody knew we were a couple. So Sam’s a close friend, and I had to go to Sam and say, ‘Look. I need to tell you something. I need you to know. I don’t want you to find out later and feel like a heel.’ So I told him, that was the first time I told him about me and Anna. And he couldn’t believe it! It’s about trust, you know. And that trust is a very important part of a relationship.

From your perspective as an actor, how would you characterize Bill and Eric’s relationship—are they friends, enemies, coworkers or what?
Bill just knows that’s how Eric is, and that he’s not going to be changing him anytime soon. Certainly in this season there is a moral hierarchy. And you understand that in the vampire world there’s a very strong sense of right and wrong. There are things you do and things you don’t and if you do something within the vampire world that is f–ked up and against your fellow vamp, you are going to suffer for that. I kind of like that idea, that you know, anything goes, but if you cross a line, you’re going to suffer for it. Whether Eric is adhering to those vampire morals is important.

What about your vampire daughter, Jessica—does that continue to be a fractured fairy tale?
If Bill imagined a daughter, he imagined a beautiful little well-mannered Victorian beauty. And Jessica comes along, and she is this hideous, sex-and-blood hungry 17-year-old. And we don’t think she’s going to be that. We think she’s going to be this homeschooled innocent, and that’s not where she is at all. The actress, Deborah Ann Woll, who plays Jessica, she’s f–king brilliant. And I love her. She goes about creating her part through a very pure, you know, method way. And I don’t mean she’s a Method actress, I just mean she really, she really goes at it with incredible, incredible industry. She’s fantastic to work with!

What can you tell us about season two?
I think the second season is beyond amazing…more than anybody imagined. Honestly, I came out of the screening the other day with my jaw on the floor. And I’ve read it, you know.

True Blood season two premieres June 14 at 9 p.m. on HBO. But between now and then, let’s kill a little time by discussing the merits of Team Bill.Tell us why this Southern vampire makes you so hot and bothered!

90210 – Newbie Sets off Sexting Scandal

When the new season of 90210 premieres on Tuesday, we’ll find Annie (Shenae Grimes) still dealing with her prom night hit-and-run.
But that’s not all she’s going to have to worry about.
A beach club party hook up with West Beverly Hills High School senior and football star Mark Driscoll, played by newcomer Blake Hood, leads to a scandal that appears to have been ripped from any number of Hollywood headlines.
“We get together and I do something I shouldn’t have done,” Hood tells me.
Uh-oh.
Read on for more of the dramarama details…
“I take a picture of her that I probably shouldn’t have taken and oops, guess what? It gets around a little bit,” Hood says.
Despite the messiness, Hood says Mark does try to help Annie get through the sext scandal. “It’s definitely a relationship that kind of sticks around for a while,” Hood says, adding, “He’s a good guy who has done a couple of bad things, has made some mistakes.”
Hood, a Dallas native who moved to L.A. three years ago, laughs when asked if he has secret real-life NSFW pics or video of his own stashed away somewhere. “Maybe that’s something to strive for,” he cracks. “You know you’ve made it when you have a sex tape.”

Silver (Jessica Stroup) continues to get over Dixon while Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) and Navid (Michael Steger) deal with Teddy’s (guest star Trevor Donovan, “Days of Our Lives”) presence in their life.

90210 – Latest from Kristin

Olivia in Los Angeles: 90210 starts next week! What can you tell me about season two?
We chatted exclusively with Ryan Eggold (Ryan Matthews), and he says we can expect more complicated romances this season: “The fun thing about season two is that all the relationships from season one have time to become more exciting and more gray; they are less defined,” he said. “I know that I have another love triangle. I’m constantly stuck in those. This one is with a student and a new female character.” Who do you think Ryan will get tangled up with? Predict in the comments below! For more 90210 spoilers, be sure to check out this article about another hot new relationship on the show. P.S. We’ve seen some of 90210 season two (more on that in a future item), and the new season is so, so, so much better than season one. Whole new look, better storylines, cooler outfits, and with all respect to Dustin Milligan, you won’t miss Ethan for a second because the new guys (like Trevor Donovan, pictured left) are better-looking and a great deal more interesting.

90210 – Liam and Annie reunite?

Amalia Zinser is joining the cast as Ivy, a tomboy surfer girl who becomes a new love interest for Liam (and Dixon). As Lanter tells us, “Naomi and I have some obstacles to get through.”Still, there’s hope. Lanter says that he and AnnaLynne are rooting for their characters: “We want it to happen. Liam is trying to find a way to basically tell Naomi what happened, but he’s trying to be sensitive because it’s her sister.”

90210 – Latest from Kristin

Are Silver and Dixon over on 90210, or is there hope for them?
We don’t want to give false hope, but Jessica Stroup teases, “Will you see us kiss? Yes. Will we continue to kiss for the whole season? I don’t know.” While both have new love interests coming in, they still care for each other. Tristan Wilds tells us, “It’s definitely a rocky relationship. We’re having our ups and our downs. You never know where we fall, but right now we’re separated.”

Any more 90210 scoop?
Supersexy newbie Trevor Donovan is coming onboard as the rich son of an Oscar winner who stirs things up with Adrianna and Navid. “I have a connection with Adrianna. We have a little past, so obviously I’m creating a little tension, a little drama,” says Donovan. Is he a bad boy? “Not intentionally. He is causing a little trouble, but he’s somewhat oblivious to it.”

90210 scoop, please.

Don’t worry about Kelly getting involved in any rumored love triangles. “I definitely am not going to allow Kelly to be a homewrecker,” Jennie Garth told us exclusively. “The producers and I have talked about it. It’s not something I’m interested in, and it’s not something they’re going to do.” Why not some added drama? “I’ve spent too many years trying to create this woman other women can trust,” she said.

Are we even going to see Dustin Milligan at all on 90210, or is Ethan gone for good?
Gone for good, though Jessica Stroup tells us, “Ethan is happy in his world. He’s doing his thing wherever he is. He gets a mention and is talked about a little bit, but he’s happy.” Are you happy with that? Discuss in the comments.

90210 – Jennie Garth back

Reports of Jennie Garth’s banishment from 90210 have been greatly exaggerated. The BH vet has inked a deal to return this fall for multiple episodes, sources confirm to me exclusively. Garth reappears in episode 3 when Kelly gives Harry advice on how to deal with his, ahem, situation with Annie.

Last month, Ausiello reported that producers had not yet approached Garth about returning for season 2, leading some to wonder how far new boss Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair was planning to scale back the nostalgia factor. At the time, a show rep insisted that ”the intention is to have Jennie back.” And gosh dammit, they weren’t lying! Happy Kelly’s returning? Theories about Annie’s “situation”? Sound off below! Source: EW

Any idea who Annie hit with her car on 90210? AnnaLynne McCord tells us the 90210 cast just found out last week, and “It’s really bad.” Hit the comments with your guesses as to who it is or who you want it to be! As for Naomi in the upcoming second season, AnnaLynne teases, “Obviously there was a horrible ending for poor Naomi. She is over Liam, and she is over Annie. She goes through the first half of the season really trying to prove that to herself. I don’t think she’s really over him, but we’ll see that push and pull.” Speaking of Liam, Matt Lanter spills, “We’re going to get into his family life a little bit more. It’s 90210 so I’m sure there are going to be some new romances and some jealousy and backstabbing.” Source: TV Guide Online

Will Adrianna and Naomi reconcile with Annie on 90210? As far as Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord), Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) and Annie (Shenae Grimes) being best buds in the second season (something some of you would like to see), AnnaLynne says, “Never. Not going to happen. I’m sorry. I wish.”… Any scoop on 90210? I’m in for the long haul. Michael Steger tells us, “They’re talking about renovating the Blaze newsroom, so it’s going to be where everything happens and everybody meets up. They’re going to make it very loungey, very comfortable.” (The Blaze newsroom is where we’ll meet Rumer Willis‘ character when she guests in a season-two episode.) Source: Kristin on E!Online

’90210′: Rumer Willis signs on

Rumerwillis_290 The cast of “90210″ continues to grow for season two. The latest addition? Bruce and Demi’s oldest daughter, Rumer Willis. Willis will appear on “at least one episode” of the show next season, says Access Hollywood. She’ll be playing a “punky cute lesbian” named Gia who works on the West Bev newscast, Blaze News, with Adrianna, Navid and Silver. She joins fellow newbie Trevor Donovan, who’ll be a regular on the show next season as the charming, handsome Teddy.

Who’s going to hook up with the new stud on 90210? Please say Kelly. MICKEY: Kelly?! She will be his guidance counselor. As usual, I’m hearing that Annie and Naomi will scratch each other’s eyes out volleying for the tennis stud’s attention, but that his love will belong to Silver, who returns to feisty form this season. (Any suggestions for who should play Teddy’s Clooney-esque movie-star dad? I’m thinking Peter Gallagher would totally rock it.)

Meet Trevor Donovan, ’90210′s’ new hottie

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Trevordonovan_90210_290 A few weeks back, Korbi brought you her first impressions of the guy who’s supposed to set hearts aflutter on “90210″ this fall. We now have a name and a face to put to the character: that of former Abercrombie & Fitch model and “Days of Our Lives” actor Trevor Donovan. So, mission accomplished? Donovan has been cast on “90210″ as Teddy, EW.com reports. The character is a tennis champ whose dad is an A-list celeb and who’s returning to West Beverly after an as-yet-unexplained absence. Teddy also has charm to spare, at least based on the audition scene Korbi got her hands on recently. Donovan shouldn’t have any problem turning heads — the guy was a model, after all. He also did a stint as bad boy Jeremy Horton on “Days of Our Lives” in 2007. The only issue we see at the moment is that he’ll be playing a good deal younger than his actual age (30, according to IMDB). But that’s a long-standing “90210″ tradition too (see Perry, Luke; Carteris, Gabrielle). Heck, Donovan even shares a birthday (Oct. 11) with Perry. What do you think? Does the casting of Donovan spike your interest for season two of “90210″?

Is ’90210′ finally casting a character we can fall in love with?

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Cast_90210 “Veronica Mars”‘ Logan Echolls. “Friday Night Lights”‘ Tim Riggins. “Gossip Girl”‘s Chuck Bass. These are the names that first come to mind when I think of charming, swoon-worthy men of the small screen. It’s characters like these that make a series great and it’s characters like these that “90210” is currently lacking.

But, perhaps, not for long.
Sure, the show added Liam (Matt Lanter) to the cast towards the end of last season and, yes, he’s hot. But, as any true TV fan knows, it takes more than good looks to create a star. Some combination of expertly written dialogue and solid comedic timing is necessary as well and, I don’t know, “90210″ may just be catching on to that formula with the forthcoming addition of “Teddy.”
Last week, we told you that “90210″ will welcome a recurring character in the fall, a high school tennis champ with a movie star pops who possesses “Clooney-esque” charm. I didn’t think much of this at first, but a friend just floated me the audition material for this kid and, I must say, I already kind of want to make out with him.
In the scene I read, Teddy is one-on-one with Silver, who he manages to keep on her toes. He seems funny, smart, sweet, not over-the-top, yet not underwhelming. He calls her out during their little chat, but in a laid back, non-threatening sort of way. And with a smile.
I mean, who knows, maybe I’m being stupidly optimistic. Maybe this kid will fall sort of flat like so many of the other boys on the show. But I’m telling you now that there is hope.
At this point, I believe The CW and the “90210″ producers are still auditioning a slew of dude actors for the role and this is obviously a key part to the puzzle. But I caution the casting team, don’t get caught up in pretty faces who can simply deliver a line sufficiently. Teddy must possess something special. After all, guys like Jason Dohring, Taylor Kitsch and Ed Westwick are not traditionally handsome men. But their charm and humor elevates their sex appeal to a whole ‘nother level. Of course you can’t drop the ball on the dialogue you’re writing for this character either, that’s perhaps the most important part of the equation. So, yeah, I hope you guys are adding a smart new scribe or two to your staff this summer as well.

‘90210’ Bringing The Beverly Hills Beach Club Back

The teens of West Beverly are getting a summer hangout! “90210” producers are bringing back the Beverly Hills Beach Club, a rep for the network confirmed to Access Hollywood. Both Brandon Walsh and Dylan McKay worked at the beachfront property, which became a hangout for the original gang, including Brenda Walsh and Kelly Taylor. The BHBC will be featured throughout the summer on the new “90210,” The CW told Access, and may help foster romances among the West Beverly kids. The original filming location was also used as a hangout for Zack Morris and the gang on “Saved By The Bell,” however it was called the Malibu Sands Beach Club in the NBC series. But it appears that filming on the new “90210” will not be able to take place in the original location. The series of buildings sustained damage in the 1994 Northridge earthquake. The CW told Access that some of the scenes will be filmed at an undisclosed location, while others will be shot on a set. “90210” resumes production in June. Source: NBC Universal, Inc.

Has there ever been an official explanation for why Dustin Milligan was cut from 90210? MICKEY: At the recent Paley Festival, new show-runner Rebecca Rand Kirshner said, “I was sort of stumped by [Ethan]. I didn’t feel like there was the longevity in that character that I wanted. And so it was a real loss.” Unofficially, I’m hearing that Ethan’s departure has paved the way for a new male lead of a very different stripe. More on him later… Source: TV Guide

Any scoop on the aftermath of Annie killing someone in the 90210 finale? We asked Annie’s (Shenae Grimes) 90210 co-star Jessica Stroup that very question: “Of course it’s going to change Annie inevitably. She’s going to be a totally different character. I think next year is going to be amazing for her because she’s going to go through a lot of changes with this character and down some really, really dark roads. I hope, at least, that it affects every one of us. I know that it’s going to affect all the characters, but I hope it brings us back together at some point as a whole group.” Source: Kristin on E!Online

90210 Exclusive: Meet Ethan’s Replacement

We were all sad to see the charming Dustin Milligan get the heave-ho from 90210 this spring, but fear not! TVGuide.com has learned exclusively that West Bev is getting a new shot of testosterone in the fall, courtesy a new recurring character. Known as “Teddy” in the character breakdown, the new man in town is a tennis champ who is also the son of a famous movie star. He is described as “returning to West Beverly,” which immediately made me think that he was the man behind the wheel of that bumper-stickered Mercedes that witnessed Annie hit… whatever it is that she hit on her season-finale joyride. Teddy’s charm is described as “Clooney-esque,” which will surely send all the ladies’ hearts a-flutter. That is, until it actually causes the inevitable rift/catfight among Silver, Annie and Naomi, thus teaching our young girls that when looking for a potential suitor, don’t let anything get in your way, least of all your best friends. All other women are evil and should be considered competition. That is all. Who do you think should be cast as 90210‘s “Teddy”?

Is ’90210′ finally casting a character we can fall in love with?

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Cast_90210 “Veronica Mars”‘ Logan Echolls. “Friday Night Lights”‘ Tim Riggins. “Gossip Girl”‘s Chuck Bass. These are the names that first come to mind when I think of charming, swoon-worthy men of the small screen. It’s characters like these that make a series great and it’s characters like these that “90210” is currently lacking.

But, perhaps, not for long.
Sure, the show added Liam (Matt Lanter) to the cast towards the end of last season and, yes, he’s hot. But, as any true TV fan knows, it takes more than good looks to create a star. Some combination of expertly written dialogue and solid comedic timing is necessary as well and, I don’t know, “90210″ may just be catching on to that formula with the forthcoming addition of “Teddy.”
Last week, we told you that “90210″ will welcome a recurring character in the fall, a high school tennis champ with a movie star pops who possesses “Clooney-esque” charm. I didn’t think much of this at first, but a friend just floated me the audition material for this kid and, I must say, I already kind of want to make out with him.
In the scene I read, Teddy is one-on-one with Silver, who he manages to keep on her toes. He seems funny, smart, sweet, not over-the-top, yet not underwhelming. He calls her out during their little chat, but in a laid back, non-threatening sort of way. And with a smile.
I mean, who knows, maybe I’m being stupidly optimistic. Maybe this kid will fall sort of flat like so many of the other boys on the show. But I’m telling you now that there is hope.
At this point, I believe The CW and the “90210″ producers are still auditioning a slew of dude actors for the role and this is obviously a key part to the puzzle. But I caution the casting team, don’t get caught up in pretty faces who can simply deliver a line sufficiently. Teddy must possess something special. After all, guys like Jason Dohring, Taylor Kitsch and Ed Westwick are not traditionally handsome men. But their charm and humor elevates their sex appeal to a whole ‘nother level. Of course you can’t drop the ball on the dialogue you’re writing for this character either, that’s perhaps the most important part of the equation. So, yeah, I hope you guys are adding a smart new scribe or two to your staff this summer as well.

The next season of 90210 would have to go on without good guy Ethan, as Entertainment Weekly has just reported that Canadian actor Dustin Milligan won’t be returning to the show this fall. He may be one-half of the series’ central super couple, but he has no power over major decisions such as this.

An insider from the series revealed that Milligan’s contract option will not be picked up for 90210’s sophomore run. However, he might be back to wrap up his character’s story in a multi-episode arc.

Apparently, the reasons for Milligan’s departure are rooted in the creative vision of the writers and had nothing to do with financial matters. Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair, the new boss of 90210, admitted to EW’s Michael Ausiello about season 2 being “significantly” different than the first.

It looks as if it’s going to be quite a reboot, especially with Sinclair’s idea to “reconceive things visually.” She also maintained that “There are opportunities to embrace California culture visually in terms of fashion and style; I want it to be more contemporary.”

“If Gossip Girl is about youth in New York,” she explains, “I want to [make 90210] about youth in L.A. and Beverly Hills.”

Another point she’s hoping to raise is that 90210 won’t be relying on the original’s alums to boost their ratings. This could also mean a farewell to the likes of Jennie Garth, Shannen Doherty, and Tori Spelling. It only seems fit since writer-producer Sinclair already took the helm from the original show-running duo of Jeff Judah and Gabe Sachs.

“The show tried to be a lot of things to a lot of people in its first season,” Sinclair said. “I think the center lies with the generation of kids that are in high school now. I’m not interested in casting people for stunt value.”

This goes the same for Dustin Milligan, who’ll surely be missed. “Everyone loves Ethan,” said the 90210 insider. “There was just a feeling that the character had run its course.”

General Season 2 Spoilers: Chuck vs. Comic-Con (Spoiler Alert: Chuck Wins!)

Kristin at E!Online at Comic-Con with the Chuck crew!

Chuck bosses Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak also showed an incredible first look at the second season, which begins Sept. 29 (Zachary Levi’s birthday).

Season Two Looks Fantastic: In the 10-minute preview trailer, we learned that Chuck and Sara will share many an intimate moment this season (and by intimate, I do mean tongue—holler!), the shower fight scene between Yvonne Strahovski and Nicole Richie looks like a mix between Alias at its finest and your fantasies at their finest and that the guest stars this year are going to rock.

Along with Richie (Sara’s old high school nemesis), this season will feature The OC’s Melinda Clarke as a sexy temptress (who locks lips with Chuck), Jordana Brewster will play Chuck’s former college dream girl, Jill (also the name of Schwartz’s fiancé, FYI), Michael Clarke Duncan looks completely badass, and Tony Hale (Arrested Development) got the most raucous cheers of all as he pops in as the new assistant manager of the Buy More. (His scenes look intensely fun.)

The Romances Are Alive: There will be a same-sex kiss this season between two characters who were up onstage at the panel, you can expect lots of heart-tugging moments from Chuck and Sara, as they flirt with the idea that they could finally truly be together once the intersect is removed from Chuck’s head, as they are planning at the start of season two. (Which also would, um, end the series, so I wouldn’t hold your breath.)

As for TV’s favorite bromance, Zach and Josh Gomez say that Chuck and Morgan’s relationship will be strained this year. Meanwhile, Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) and Awesome (Ryan McPartlin) go into full wedding-planning mode, with Ellie becoming something of an obsessive Martha Stewart.

Also This Season: The Nerd Herd is in full effect! “They are all series regulars this year,” Schwartz reveals of the main herders. We also saw Thunderdome-at-the-Buy-More footage that will take your breath away, it looks so funny.

Schwartz and Fedak also reveal that we’ll meet the Awesomes this year (through the wedding shenanigans, I’m sure) and that Big Mike will start to date Morgan’s mom.

Adam Baldwin Can Do No Wrong: The room ate up his every word. And even though he said that Casey will not reveal his softer side this season, something tells me that he won’t follow through his marching orders to off Chuck. (‘Cause, um, that would be the end of the series.)
