One Tree Hill Episode Recap

Sophiabush_onetreehill_s5_240

Let’s begin with the good stuff, shall we? Now that Lucas has decided to keep making his film, he meets with Julian to let him know he’s staying on the movie but they’re not friends and Julian and Peyton aren’t anything, ever again. Julian’s first task for Lucas is to go to Los Angeles and meet with an A-list director who is interested in the film. When Lucas gets to L.A. the director is none other than our favorite hack director Mr. Dawson Leery, a.k.a. James Van Der Beek! Whee! I never thought I’d be so excited to see the Beek. And it’s not just James Van Der Beek, but James Van Der Beek being overly enthusiastic about a script his character obviously doesn’t understand! And James Van Der Beek doing lines of coke off his desk! And James Van Der Beek embodying every awesome Hollywood director cliché in the book! Thank you, One Tree Hill, for making this happen. The only thing that could make it better is if the character was actually Dawson Leery. Alas, the reference will have to be sufficient. Anywho, even though he loves the script he has some (terrible) notes, like “what if Haley dies?” You see, because Leo died in Titanic and that’s what young girls like! Hee. Van Der Beek is obviously taking cues from his former co-star’s famous husband as well, couch jumping and generally acting like a lunatic, eventually uttering the very appropriate in-joke: “If there’s one thing I know it’s that audiences go crazy about who ends up together.” As long as they don’t end up with you, Beeky. Especially when I have to see you without your shirt on! Ew! Pacey forever! Just please put your shirt back on! Beeky ends his portion of the episode by questioning why Lucas and Peyton have to end up together at the end of the movie and Lucas’ only answer is “they just have to.” Compelling argument, Luke…..
Peyton, meanwhile, begins the episode at the doctor’s office dealing with her mysterious belly pain from last week. She’s also dealing with Mia’s refusal to get into the studio and cut a new album. Mia reveals she doesn’t even have any songs written yet and the label is fed up and wants her to look at some songwriters so she can get something recorded. Mia listens to the CD per Peyton’s request, but puts her foot down on recording the song because she insists on writing her own material. Peyton immediately jumps down Mia’s throat, which is quite uncharacteristic of her and obviously caused by her distress over her mystery illness. The situation escalates into a big blowup that eventually ends up with Peyton asking Mia to leave the label because “life’s too short” to deal with things like this. The camera immediately pans to a computer screen with information about ovarian cancer, which is obviously what Peyton and the doctor were talking about at the beginning of the episode. Sigh. Peyton really is the Kelly Taylor of this show, isn’t she? Next thing you know she’s going to join a cult, get a stalker and then get burned in a fire, but the kind of burned where you don’t have any visible scars. At the end of the episode Peyton gets the final news from the doctor about what is causing her pain, but we the audience don’t find out what it is….. Continue reading »

New Gossip Girl Spoilers & Scoop: More on Lily and Rufus and the New Teacher!

As you know, young Lily and Rufus were adorable and in love, but they didn’t end up together. Why? Well, the CW and Warner Bros. so far haven’t commented, but I’m told there is a Gossip Girl webisode series in the works that will explain what really happened to Lily and Rufus when they were 19, and we’ll see the ramifications in the present day. From what I can tell it has to do with Lily’s time in the sanitorium, but her confinement bears no resemblance to the reason for Eric’s institutionalization. If Lily was crazy back then, it was only because Lily was pregnant and hiding it. Read More: Major Gossip Girl Spoilers and Scoop! Lily and Rufus’s son and Chuck, CEO!

Bary Bass’s death leads to:

*Clears the way for a Lily and Rufus reunion.
*Jack Bass (30-year-old brother of Bart) comes into the picture and tries to take over the company.
By the way, I’m told that the funeral episode, which airs Dec. 8, is one of the best episodes of the series and will leave you sobbing. So break out the Kleenex!

On Gossip Girl, who is the new hot teacher? And who will she hook up with?

Upper East Siders are getting a hot new teacher. A hot young new female teacher. And according to my source, she’s going to create “lots of drama.” Source: Kristin on E!Online

They still haven’t cast her. (Lauren Graham, Rebecca Romijn, send in your resumes!) She will be a significant part and will be young, so she likely will be sinking her cougar claws into some hot young boy toy on the Upper East Side. (I can just hear the Parents Television Council singing their praises now!) BTW, there is no new episode tonight, but I can offer you this fabulous Blair promo to tide you over.

‘Chuck’ Exclusive: Helfer in! Strahovski out?

by Michael Ausiello, EW

Helferstrahovski_l Another week, another genius piece of Chuck casting…

Piping hot Battlestar Galactica toaster Tricia Helfer has been cast on Chuck as Special Agent Alex Forrest, a by-the-book ass-kicker and — here’s where things get a little frakked up — a potential replacement for Yvonne Strahovski’s Sarah.

Relax, I said potential replacement.

Here’s the deal: According to my Chuck mole, General Beckman — who has been growing increasingly concerned about Chuck and Sarah’s intensifying bond — considers bringing in a new G-woman to work alongside Chuck. Enter Agent Forrest, who shows no fear, no remorse and, much to Agent Casey‘s delight, is very easy on the eyes.

But Helfer isn’t moving in on Strahovski’s turf permanently, is she? Actually…no, she’s not. Helfer’s only booked for one episode (No. 18), and Strahovski’s got, well, an ironclad six-year contract.

Speaking of Chuck (a.k.a. the most consistently entertaining hour on NBC’s air, IMHO), here are two bonus casting scoops free of charge:

•    Jonathan Cake (Six Degrees) is coming on board for a multi-episode arc as a Gerard Butler-esqe British MI6 agent by the name of Cole Barker. The rugged, macho spy catches Sarah’s eye and makes Chuck feel even geekier than usual.

•    Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl Brooklyn Decker will guest star in episode 15 when Jeff and Lester take over the hiring process at Buy More and begin recruiting potential Buy More booth babes.

Chuck‘s “Lester” Previews a “Very Special” Thanksgiving

by Matt Mitovich, TV Guide

On NBC’s Chuck (Mondays at 8 pm/ET), the land of “BuyMoria” is inhabited by several colorful denizens, creatures of all manner of maturity, intelligence and resolve. Vik Sahay — who, interestingly, originally went after the role of Chuck’s BFF, Morgan — shares with us here a peek inside Lester’s world. Plus: What’s this about a “very special” Thanksgiving episode of the action-comedy?!

TVGuide.com: What’s it like working there at the Buy More set?
Vik Sahay: Honestly, to me, the fact that somebody built and put that thing together is pretty amazing. But the best part is that I get to work with the actors I do on that set. It’s often group scenes, you’re where the comedy of the show basically comes from, and you bounce off some of, I think, the hottest actors going right now.

TVGuide.com: Plus you get to surf the ‘Net and check your email between takes.
Sahay: Yeah, that’s almost the most important thing.

TVGuide.com: Did you enjoy Lester’s brief stint as assistant manager?
Sahay: It was a nightmare, for both me and Lester. [Laughs] You’ve got poor Lester fancying himself a rock star, and yet, ultimately, he doesn’t have the nervous system to back it up. He got what he wished for and it crumbled badly.

TVGuide.com: How is Tony Hale as the new boss?
Sahay: I’m a Canadian kid, and literally a year and a half ago I was sitting in Toronto watching Arrested Development, going, “That guy’s a genius.” And now suddenly I’m face-to-face with the guy. To be on the set with Tony Hale is the pinnacle.

TVGuide.com: Do you think Lester has any friends outside of the Buy More crew?
Sahay: I think he has very few. He’s a guy whose smugness and social awkwardness and social immaturity finds him wanting to be admired and loved so much that he’s very, very off-putting. In Jeff he has found someone who has a kind of kinship with. They’re social misfits who fit together in a way.

TVGuide.com: When they spied Chuck on his first date with Jill, were they out on an offsite install or out cruising to pick up chicks?
Sahay: I think they were at some low-end dive trying to pick up chicks and were on their way home because yet again it did not work out. [Laughs]

TVGuide.com: Next week, Lester, Jeff and Morgan are put in charge of guarding the store the night before “Black Friday.” Does the evening go without incident?
Sahay: It’s a very, very sweet episode, actually. It goes without incident in the broader sense, but it goes with huge incident in the interior world of the characters. You see what their expectations and viewpoints on life are, really, how they were raised…..

TVGuide.com: You’re making it sound like an ABC Afterschool Special. “On a very special episode of Chuck….”
Sahay: Well, that’s how I’m going to sell it! [Laughs]

TVGuide.com: Who do you wish you got to work with more — Zachary Levi or Yvonne Strahovski?
Sahay: What the hell kind of question is that? Obviously Yvonne!

TVGuide.com: I asked her the same question a few weeks ago, and she wishes she got to work with the Buy More crew.
Sahay: Is that what she said?

TVGuide.com: She had a semi-fond recollection of when Lester asked Sarah out on a date.
Sahay: We had a fun time. She should get to do more comedic scenes, because she’s a funny, funny girl. An amazing actor. And Zach, he’s the man. That guy can do anything.

TVGuide.com: If somebody wanted to see the complete opposite of Lester, which other role of yours should they check out?
Sahay: Oh, that’s a really good question…. I would say to check out a movie that just got released in Canada, called Amal. That’s a deep, dark, brooding character. [Sahay plays the spoiled and very unhappy son of a wealthy man who leaves his fortune to a rickshaw driver.]

TVGuide.com: Before we go, one final tease about what’s ahead for Lester.
Sahay: We’re going to have situations where you again see Lester be granted status and a spotlight, and then see how he handles it. He’s being confronted with himself more and more. It’s a burning, slow reveal of who this guy is and how he handles himself in circumstances he thinks he wants to be in.

Latest Heros Spoilers!

Adam Taylor/NBC

Heroes

Kerri in Irvine, Calif.: Any word of cast changes or deaths at Heroes? I’m still hoping a few of the characters will go far, far away!
One of them will die soon, and personally, it’s not who I was hoping for! (This death also puts an end to a new love story as we know it.) However, I’m also hearing that the powers that be may be doing some more thorough house-cleaning among the Heroes cast, thanks to a little Lost-like catastrophe at the end of the current “Villains” volume. Last night at the Christmas Tree Lighting at the Grove (an outdoor shopping mecca here in L.A.), Greg Grunberg spilled to me: “There’s a huge plane crash, and all of us are involved…I’ll tell you this, it’s not Oceanic 815, and I’m not in the pilot seat. It’s a little different.”

More on that big ol’ plane crash: Hunter (Zeljko Ivanek) captures many of our favorite Heroes and loads them onto a transport plane. (Think prisoners heading to Guantánamo Bay.) When the plane goes down, “You don’t know who survives,” says Grunny. When asked if Angela Petrelli would be joining their nondirty “mile-high club,” Cristine Rose tells me, “I’m getting old, I don’t see myself parachuting.” So could that be how some of our Heroes survive? More importantly, did the plane go down because Desmond forgot to key in the numbers in the Hatch?

Will we ever discover Daphne’s secret on Heroes?
Yes we will! Tonight, Daphne (Brea Grant) heads home, and there she finds she has some unexpected guests: Matt, Hiro and Ando. Also, Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) heads to Haiti tonight to solve some more family mysteries, but he better be careful, because he’s going to be kidnapped. Source: Kristin on E!Online

Episode 3.10: The Eclipse Part 1 Airdate: November 24, 2008

[Seth Green and Breckin Meyer’s] two-part episode, “The Eclipse”, features Green as the proprietor of Sam’s Comics, a seedy collector’s shop in Lawrence, Kansas. Meyer is Sam’s slacker pal, Frack, the shop’s most loyal customer. In the plot, Hiro and Ando come to Lawrence in search of the supersonic Daphne and walk into the store, causing Sam and Frack to trip out when they recognize them from the prophetic 9th Wonders! comic. Later, when a solar eclipse impacts Hiro with memory loss, they use back issues to help him recall his past. Source: TV Guide

We learn definitively that the Haitian is a Hero (not a Villain). The episode also explores the other big question about the Haitian: Can he restore memories in addition to wiping them out on command? Source: Kristin on E!Online

Summary of spoilers revealed in Behind the Eclipse Q&A #7: Building will be blown up, some stories and perhaps characters will be “put to rest”, but there will still be no clear winner between the Heroes or Villain. Doyle will return in Episode 13 and will have at least one appearance in Volume 4. Source: SpoilerTV

Summary of spoilers revealed in Behind the Eclipse Q&A #7: We have not see the last of Usutu. We will learn a little bit more about “The Formula’s” origins in some upcoming episodes. Claire’s future employment with Arthur was “averted or delayed” once Peter fell through the window. Claire will not find out any time soon that her dad HRG was responsible for Sylar’s path to killer. Sylar does not even know HRG was involved just Elle. Most of the Heroes abilities come with side effects like The Hunger, but not as severe. We will eventually learn about Adam’s kids, but not this season. If Arthur dies, all the powers go with him and are not returned to the original person. It will not be that easy for Peter to regain his powers. They would like to explore the story of Elle’s mother but do not know when. Arthur doesn’t use powers on Nathan, because they wanted Linderman to be feared thus he wanted to kill him hoping to send a message to the DA’s office. Source: SpoilerTV

Arthur Petrelli steals abilities, runs creeptastic human-subject experiments and is generally a psycho–this behavior can come to no good. Can he be stopped before he kills, well, everybody he’s ever met? We find out in the upcoming batch of episodes, as Arthur Petrelli’s reign of terror finally comes under attack, leading up to a spectacular but devastating showdown between the Heroes and the Villains in the last episode of this volume. […] One of the Petrelli boys (besides Peter) loses his power. The difference is that when the other brother loses his abilities it happens for a much more mechanical, tangible reason. Oh, and the power loss to which I’m referring has nothing to do with next week’s eclipse. Source: Kristin on E!Online

One Tree Hill Spoilers!

First, Kristin at E!Online says there maybe be two pregnant characters on One Tree Hill….

‘One Tree Hill’s’ Mark Schwahn Talks Brucas, Leyton & The New Love Triangle

By Korbi Ghosh, Zap2it.com

Mark Schwahn gives good interview, my friends. Six years into One Tree Hill, the creator is still so passionate about his series that after just getting off a long flight from Wilmington, North Carolina where the show shoots — Chad Michael Murray is directing his first episode right now and Schwahn went down to peek over his shoulder — he has no problem spending over an hour chatting about it… even with a journalist who may have poked a little fun at OTH in the past.

But I have to say that with the exception of the Nanny Carrie storyline — I’m sorry! I just couldn’t get on board with that one — OTH is enjoying a nice heyday at the moment and I’m liking it more now than ever. Schwahn credits last season’s four year jump for the show’s revitalization and for giving One Tree Hill a stability that it never had before. Having surfed the cancellation bubble every year prior to the jump forward, OTH is finally in a fairly stable position. When I mentioned to Mark that I couldn’t imagine One Tree Hill not returning next season, he laughed at the irony of the show’s journey. After all the flack he’s taken from the critics and the suits over the years, he does feel like they’re in a great place for another season. “Who would’ve ever thought that would be the case,” he mused. “I mean, we were never in a great place for season 2!”

But I’m getting ahead of myself. Before we can talk about a 7th go-round, we’ve got to get through the second half of this year. And with the midseason finale airing tonight, you die hard Tree Hill fans had quite a few questions for Mr. Schwahn and he was happy to answer them, as your love for the show seems to mean a lot to him. So, without further ado…

Bush What’s the deal with B. Davis? Everyone else is happy, but she’s just been stripped of everything.
MS: You know, Brooke in many ways — I don’t know if I’ve ever said this out loud — feels a lot like Karen to me. Because Karen had been very solitary in raising Lucas. It wasn’t until she got closer to Keith — and Lucas was a senior in high school by then — that she sort of allowed her heart to let somebody in, since having been burned by Dan. And Brooke also feels like she’s chosen this solitary existence. And I think, for the fans, they feel like, if not Lucas, then no one. But we’re doing this little dance with Owen right now, which we will follow up on. [Stephen] Colletti is returning, so Chase is in the mix. And there are other directions to go, too. But ultimately, I think the questions are more about Brooke and the choices she’s made. Is she going to change her ways or is she going to be solitary as she continues her life? And that’s interesting to me.

Is the Brooke-Lucas-Peyton love triangle over for good?
MS: I would say that right now, I’m most compelled to see who Lucas and Peyton are going to try to be as a couple. I don’t want to ignore that huge Brucas fan base, I think it’s dangerous to ignore them, but while they may feel under served right now, I think if they’re fans of both of those characters, hopefully they’re still invested in their journeys. A lot of them are just fans of them together romantically, and I understand that they feel a little let down when we choose other paths for the characters, but ultimately, I really doubt that we’ll go back to Brooke and Lucas. Although, you know, you never say never on this show.

Zuniga Will we see Brooke’s mom again? Is Daphne Zuniga coming back?
MS: I think we will see her again. I like Daphne a lot and I like that [her character] Victoria can be sort of the queen of mean. People like a villain. You know, there’s a reason that Dan Scott is still relevant on the show. But this is something I haven’t said to anyone else: You know how sometimes things skip a generation? Like, Dan is being so sweet to Jamie, but he could never be that person to his sons. Well, what will Victoria’s reaction to Sam be? Does she see Sam as one of the reasons that Brooke has fallen off the rails and isn’t pursuing her clothing line, which Victoria now has? She always saw Peyton as sort of a hanger-on and as just being in the way. So, is that Sam to her, too? Or, does she actually get along with Sam and see that Sam has moxy? Will Brooke be like, unbelievable, you were never this kind to me? I think that that’s compelling. I always love when we can pull the curtain back a little bit on our villains and show that they actually have a heart.

Is Sam sticking around for the whole season?
MS: I think Sam will stick around for the whole season. She’s not really going to be front and center much, in the same way that Quentin sort of wasn’t last year, but she’ll be around and I think the story will be interesting. Is this somebody that Brooke wants to adopt and be mother to for the rest of her life? Is Brooke simply providing this foster environment so that Sam can get back on her feet and move on? Are Sam’s parents out there? You know, she alluded to her mom in one of the episodes, so is that going to come into play? Also, there’s a new character that we’re going to meet in [tonight’s episode] named Jack. He plays a friend of Sam’s and it’s going to be a great part. It’s interesting to me, because we’ve only known Sam via Brooke and Haley, but now we’re going to see her world a little bit. I think there’s some cool stuff to do there, and it all sort of services the Brooke [story line] of, you know, what is family in the face of having a pretty miserable one. And what choices is she going to make, not only in regards to Sam, but in her romantic life and all of those things.

Nichols I heard Brooke and Julian are going to get into it. What’s that about? Is there something between them?
MS: Well, there could be. I mean, there’s a girl code. And we’ve talked a lot about that. But never say never. [Tonight], Julian and Brooke are going to cross, but it might not be for the reasons the audience is expecting. But, you know, when we put characters in the same universe, it’s always interesting to see what direction they’re going to go. And [with Brooke and Julian], Sam is involved. Sam writes — we saw that she wrote that essay about Quentin in the funeral episode — she has an interest in that, and Julian is a producer, so they’re going to cross paths. And how will Brooke deal with this? Is she a very protective mother hen? Does she see the potential for Julian to be a helpful influence? Or is she completely threatened by that? And then, with Julian and Brooke in the same world, what does that mean to Peyton? Is Julian using Brooke as a conduit to get back to Peyton? Does Peyton think he’s using her to get to Brooke? You know, there’s a lot going on there. And can he be trusted? It’s funny because Sam asks him if he would read some of her stuff and he goes, sure. And she goes, well I just kind of heard that you were a dick. And he says, well I am a dick, but maybe I will find something that I can steal!

I think Julian is so hot. How long is he going to be around and what can we expect from him?
MS: You know, I think that Austin [Nichols] is a really great addition. He’s such a natural fit with this cast. And I always love when we can hide things in broad daylight. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to jump the show ahead, because we can pull in elements from the past. Nobody was really asking what Peyton was doing [during the four year gap], because the active storyline was Lucas-Peyton-Lindsey. But then Julian shows up and you go, of course! Why didn’t I think about what Peyton was doing that whole time. But yeah, [Julian] is a bit of a scoundrel. Not as much of a scoundrel as, say, a Chris Keller, but he’s not the moral center that Lucas would be. And I like characters like that. Recruiting Austin to do this, we talked about who this guy would be and where we were going with him and we see more of that in [tonight’s] midseason finale. You know, Lucas has a decision to make. Peyton went to him after the USO show and said, I think you should stay with the movie, because Julian asked her to. And she said [to Julian], if you’re lying, I’m never going to forgive you for it. And so, is he lying? And is Lucas going to continue with the movie? And if he does, what is their relationship going to be like? Certainly, in regards to Peyton, but also in regards to the movie in general and Julian’s place in this world and in Tree Hill and, you know, I always like it when the audience is guessing. Half of them will see one thing in him and half of them will see another, just like they did with Lindsey and just like they do with Dan. So, he’ll be around for a little bit. I don’t know if he’s going to stick around for the whole season, but he’ll at least be around for another handful of episodes.

Mcmanus Will Lindsey ever be back?
I’d like to bring Michaela [McManus] back. But it might not work out business wise. [Law & Order is] not [obligated] to let her out. And I’m not sure that creatively we’re going to need to see her again. But I love [Michaela], I like the character, so if we want to do it, hopefully [the Law & Order producers will] be able to make that work.

Will we ever see Karen again?
MS: Yes. I do miss Moira [Kelly], she’s such a talent. But when the kids got to be adults, the adults weren’t as necessary. And, you know, with Dan being in prison and all that, it felt like he had a more active storyline [than Karen did]. Karen’s activity was often as counsel to Lucas, and I wanted Lucas to become counsel, to his players and to Jamie and to his friends. But we’ll see Karen again [before the show comes to an end].

I am so happy that Nathan and Haley are happy. That’s all.
MS: What is great for Nathan and Haley is we were able to let them be loving towards each other, even though they’re facing troubles… and also, to think of others as they’re dealing with their own problems. I think Jamie was such a great balance for that, because when you’re a parent, you’re not first anymore. And that doesn’t mean you can’t put yourself first now and then, you should, and they do. But, you know, they’ve got this great kid and they don’t wanna break him. And I don’t think the audience wants them to break him either!

Lafferty Will Nathan’s dreams ever come true? Is he trying out for the NBA in this week’s episode?
MS: Yeah, he’s going to an NBA combine where they invite prospects by invitation. It’s basically tryouts for what we call the B League on our show, it’s sort of the minor leagues of professional basketball. What’s interesting to me about athletes — especially ones with an injury like Nathan — it’s hard for them to let go of the game. And we already set up this conversation that Nathan had [earlier this year] with the coach of the B League team who wanted him to coach, too. He said to him, I know it’s hard to put the game down, especially when those were your best days. But at what point does Nathan let go of it? And maybe he doesn’t have to. Maybe he’s still as good as he always was. I mean, that’s basically what his storyline is in [tonight’s hour]. This is the day we’re going to find out. And either you’re gonna be great, but if you’re not great, isn’t it time to let go? I actually wrote a line in the script where he says, you know, I hope it’s gonna be yes, but if it’s no and this is the end of it, then that’ll be okay. And then for Haley, I wrote “Haley holds on, hoping for a yes, or [for a] no that they can live with.” I think that that sort of describes it in the way that I see it. If it’s a no, she just hopes that he’ll be okay and he’ll still be the guy that she fell in love with. And that’s compelling to me. That’s good drama to me. So that’s definitely his part in this mid-season finale. He just wants to take one more shot at this. You know, maybe he’s better than he was before the accident. In working with Quentin, it seemed like he was all the way back. And that would be a great story too. As a matter of fact, we’re going to see a glimpse of Quentin in this midseason finale and it’s going to be a flashback to the workouts they did together. And it’s great because we always saw those workouts, but there’s another piece to the puzzle that was going on during [that time] that we’ll find out about [tonight].

Norris There’s a rumor circulating that Millicent’s going to cheat on Mouth.
MS:
Oh yeah, who are you hearing she’s cheating with?

I’m not sure who she’d be cheating with, but I have heard she’s straying.
MS: Yeah, well, Mouth is in a bit of a love triangle. It’s not a love triangle yet, but if it becomes one, there’s going to be trouble afoot. He’s got Gigi and Millicent issues right now and we’re going to shine a light on what’s going on there. This energy that he’s playing with, in regards to Gigi, whether or not he’s acted on it, he’s still sort of getting off on it. You know, he clearly enjoys having her be into him, which is [understandable]. I think everybody can be guilty of that. It’s nice having somebody who sees you as sexy and flirts with you. But if that starts to contaminate his relationship with Millicent, then he’s making a mistake. And even if he hasn’t really done anything wrong, what does this mean to Millicent? It’s not necessarily about Mouth, it’s more interesting to me how Millicent feels. If it’s breaking her heart, then it’s [no good]. So we’re going to see where that goes. And, at a certain point, Gigi will be irrelevant to that story line. It’ll be more about Mouth and Millicent. And yeah, it’s quite possible [that Millicent will cheat on Mouth]. It could be that they’re both making terrible mistakes. And it could be that one of them is and one of them isn’t.

Burton What’s the deal with the Peyton cliffhanger? Why did she collapse?
MS: We’re definitely going to address that. Whatever this pain was, whatever this attack was, we’re gonna get into that. That’s a big storyline in this midseason finale. Now, we might not [completely reveal what’s going on], but there’s definitely something going on with her and I think the fans will have a lot of those questions answered in this episode. It’s not something that she’s going to just hide away and refuse to acknowledge. As a matter of fact, I think her first scene in this episode is in a doctor’s office.

Everyone’s debating, Peyton either has cancer or she’s pregnant, which is it?!
MS: You know, I didn’t know that, but it’s funny, those are the two contenders! I mean, she has a history of cancer in her family obviously. She could be pregnant now that she and Lucas are in love and working their way towards their wedding. But we’ll get into all of that [tonight].

What was the point of the last episode that Chad Michael Murray wrote?
MS:
You know, Chad showed me a bare bones version of that script during the finale last year and I liked it. It got positioned where it did, at this point during the season, because with Peyton getting shot in the end, I thought it would be a great [segway into the cliffhanger of her falling down in pain]. And I thought the episode turned out great. But it’s interesting, because you can’t underestimate the serialized nature of our show, and I think for the fans that didn’t enjoy it, they probably just felt like it wasn’t advancing anything. And it wasn’t. And you can only do that so often, because we are a serialized show and, you know, we’re like sharks, we need to keep moving forward or we’re going to drown! But once in a while, you can rest a little bit and just do something fun. Especially in season 6. And I have to say, that episode invigorated the cast and the crew. They enjoyed being able to play. You know, you get into this business — even a lot of the crew members — because it’s play and because you get to dress up and do things you don’t get to do in your regular life. And well, we’re six years into doing kind of the same thing. Even though each episode presents new challenges, everyone really enjoyed being able to step outside of it. The girls were so excited about hair and makeup and wardrobe. And the guys were all clean shaven, which I was excited about! So, some fans may have been bored by it or thought like, what’s the point? Or maybe they just didn’t like it on a creative level, but you know, part of producing is making sure that your team is happy and feels invigorated and this episode came at the exact right time for that…

Heroes Episode Recap: “The Eclipse, Part 1”

So after being told repeatedly in the last episode that “it’s coming” the game-changing eclipse finally came.

Of course, the episode offered little explanation as to why the eclipse robbed everyone of their powers, rather resorting to the show’s favorite device: show you the future in a drawing and bring the drawing to life before your eyes, So what was in Arthur’s drawings and how did everything play out? Let’s take them one at a time … read more

‘Supernatural’ Spoilers 4.11: After School Special

Supernatural’ January 15 episode will see the teenage life of the Winchester brothers as they investigate a school haunting.

It’s a throwback in the new episode of ““. Sam and Dean will investigate the haunting of one of the schools they attended while they were teenagers. The investigation shows also what school mean to the Winchester brothers and why women are so into Dean.

The young versions of Sam and Dean reveal the past where the former used to dislike traveling and being on the road a lot while the latter took things easier and watched Sam’s back. Sam found it difficult to create new circle of friends every time they move in order to follow their demon-chasing father and thus was often being bullied. Meanwhile, Dean found time to socialize and even pursue girls including necking with a local girl.

This episode which is titled “After School Special”, will only air on January 15 after a production break. The show found the actor who will portray the teen Dean and Sam. 23-year-old Brock Kelly who once played in “Days of Our Lives” is filling for Dean while Colin Ford will reprise his role as young Sam. — Ace Showbiz
