Lost Season 6 Spoilers: ‘Destiny Found’ The Final Season! How it all Ends!

Is this Italian site posting the real series finale script pages?

Breaking News – Lost Series Finale Extended by 30 Mins

Get ready for more “Lost.”

The producers of ABC’s hit drama have shot so much crucial material for the show’s hugely anticipated finale that the network has agreed to extend the last episode by an extra half hour.

When the “Lost” finale airs on Sunday, May 23rd, the episode will run from 9 to 11:30 p.m. The overrun will air instead of the local news, with the “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Aloha to Lost” post-finale special remaining at 11:30 p.m. ABC is expected to announce the plan on tonight’s episode of Kimmel.

Executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof just completed post-production on the finale” — on Monday night. Both sent out identical Tweets: “We’re done. Amen.”

The supersizing of the finale is the latest adjustment to what might as well be called “The ‘Lost’ Weekend.” ABC is airing an “enhanced” (pop-ups) version of the show’s original two-hour pilot on May 22. On Sunday there’s a two-hour retrospective titled “Lost: The Final Journey,” followed by the finale and Kimmel post-show.

Episode 6.15 – Across The Sea – Latest from TV Guide Magazine

What’s The West Wing’s C.J. doing on the May 11 episode of Lost? No one’s officially saying anything about Emmy winner Allison Janney’s mystery character (identified only as ‘Woman’), though online speculation has it that she may be playing the mother of Mark Pellegrino’s Jacob or Titus Welliver’s Man in Black – two of the few recognizable faces in this trippy third-to-last installment titled, “Across the Sea.”

“She’s incredible, but we can’t give away who she’s playing,” says executive producer Damon Lindelof, confirming only that Allison’s role is a major one. “We will confirm that she will be a woman.” (Dang, there goes my big island tranny creation theory.)

Fellow executive producer Carlton Cuse adds, “We were so happy that she was able to do this. It was really hard for her because she was getting ready to shoot a pilot, but she squeezed us in. Then once we saw her in this part we were like, ‘How could anyone else have done this but Allison Janney?”

“In fact,” adds Lindelof, “we’ve been talking about this character for awhile and how nervous we were that we wouldn’t find the right actress. When we first started talking about this character in the writers room we called her ‘Allison Janney’ under the assumption that we wouldn’t be able to get her.”

But the two EPs got on the phone with Allison and had “a lovely conversation,” tells Lindelof. “She’d seen enough of the show to ‘get’ it, but wasn’t completely dialed in. So we explained the part and said it was as close to writing a role for a particular person as we’d ever done. And she moved heaven and earth to go down to Hawaii for eight days.”

Cuse says the mystery role required “incredible presence,” which Allison demonstrated on her long-running NBC drama. “She had so much presence in The West Wing,” he recalls. “She was in charge and had the strength we needed.”

Hmmm… So, since my tranny creation theory’s out the window, might it be possible that Janney’s character was sent to the island on official business by… Martin Sheen’s President Bartlet? Not even in a flash-sideways!

Preview of ‘Lost’ Season 6: Destiny Found

Source: Ace Showbiz TV News
An eye opens in a sudden, in the teaser for ‘Lost’ season 6 which will be the final round for the whole island’s mystery.

Preview of 'Lost' Season 6: Destiny Found See larger image” has ended its fifth season run on Wednesday, May 13 with a cliffhanger when Juliet was sucked into the hole and woke up with the bomb near her. She hit the bomb with a rock and it was the end of the episode. To keep fans in excitement, ABC has posted a very short sneak peek of the 6th season where an aye opens up in shock. No clue to who the green eye belongs to. In the preview also, it is revealed that the big idea is “Destiny Found” and it could as well be the ultimate reason why they are all stranded on the island in the first place, not the kind of destiny that each of the characters thought. The new season will begin in 2010, reportedly in January. Meanwhile, a few thoughts on the sixth season had been thrown in recent weeks and here is the summary. Likely to be back for another round are Ben, Juliet and Claire. Regarding Ben’s return, Michael Emerson who plays the character said that Ben’s work is not done in the season finale but he is also still crossing fingers for it because nothing is set in stone in “Lost”. Juliet’s comeback was teased by EW with no other details while Claire’s involvement was suggested by Carlton Cuse. “Claire is a wonderful part of the show and the audience can rest assured that they will see (her) again on Lost,” Cuse said. For one thing, the sixth season will be the final season for the series. Creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have planned the whole story to conclude in the 6th year, with the story coming to full circle. “Season six will feel a lot like season one,” Lindelof teased. “The focus comes back to the characters with whom we began. We’ve been winnowing away everyone else who came along. The Tailies are gone, only Miles is left of the Freighter Folk and only Juliet is left of The Others. We’re getting down to the end now.”

Matthew Fox Tells Us How Lost Ends (and How Season Six Begins)

Source: Kristin on E!Online

Matthew Fox says Lost creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse will prove they knew where they were going all along when the show ends in “an incredibly powerful, very sad and beautiful way. I think is going to be pretty awesome.”

The only castmember to know what that crazy smoke monster is and how the show ends said, “I think it is going to be very satisfying and cathartic and redemptive and beautiful. I’ve talked to Damon pretty extensively and every time I talk to him it’s sort of surprising how moving it is just to talk about it.”

But before we get the very end of our adventure, Fox exclusively reveals to us the beginning of Lost season six…

The sixth season will begin with an examination of what happened after Juliet seemingly detonated the hydrogen bomb. As usual, Fox says, “It’s very surprising and probably fairly confusing initially to the audience.”

“Like a third of the way in [to the season] I would guess we are going to [settle] in one time frame and it will be very linear—no more flashbacks, nothing. It will be on the island and sort of a final conflict to the end,” say Fox.

He assured fans that all the crazy storylines introduced in earlier seasons will be resolved, and said that the conflict between Jack and Locke (Terry O’Quinn) “will come head to head” this season, but wouldn’t divulge more than that. When asked what would happen if he did, he said, “Some guys would pull up outside this building in a white van and masks and I’d never be seen again.”

At the 35th Annual Saturn Awards in Burbank, Calif., we asked Lost‘s Michael Emerson how Ben (who once crushed hard on Juliet) would react to the news that she had nuked herself, and Emerson said: “Ben’s no longer in a position to entertain romantic notions. I don’t think there’s room for romance in Ben’s world right now. As much as he admires her on a lot of levels, I don’t think he can do anything about it.” We also asked, on a scale of one to 10, how he would rate Elizabeth Mitchell‘s awesomeness? “It would be a number higher than 10.” Word.
The best we can offer you on this fine afternoon is Lost show runner Carlton Cuse saying nothing about Lost at the Saturn Awards, but saying it darn well:

Watch With Kristin: How much of the speculation on the Internet about Lost season six is correct? Give us a percentage.
Carlton Cuse:
I’m not really good at math, so no speculation about that.

WWK: You’re the best stonewaller ever.
This is what we like to call stonewalling season, where we try to preserve radio silence—but we’ll be coming out of Comic-Con with some cool things, I think, so we’re excited about that.

WWK: There is one very important question.

WWK: Can you get Josh Holloway to come to Comic-Con?
Mmmm…That’s a good idea, which I will pitch to the appropriate parties. Josh is great. We would love it if Josh would come.

WWK: And here’s a question you’re not going to answer. Season one: Jack’s the most important person ever. Season four: Ben’s the key to everything. Season five: Jacob. If you had to pick a character who was the most central to what Lost is in the end, who would it be?
You’re right, I’m not going to answer that.

1. We tried.
2. Tell Holloway in the comments that he should appear on Lost‘s final Comic-Con panel.

Upcoming Episode Spoilers – Some Big Ones

Hurley speaks to someone very close to Richard’s past and conveys this person’s message to Richard. Definite tearjerker on par with when we first meet Bernand and he finds out Rose is okay in season 2.
– Man in Black has a true nemesis – and it’s not Jacob.
-“Happily Ever After” marks Desmond’s full return – his centric episode as well. His “flash-sideways” feature Charlie, Daniel, Penny, Mommy, Jack, Widmore, and Claire. Widmore and Desmond share some of that famous scotch. Des has to make a very, very big sacrifice.
– “Everybody Loves Hugo” marks the return of Libby and Michael. Michael is a ghost on island and Libby and Hurley date in his “flash-sideways.” Locke gets run over. Man can’t catch a break, can he?

Widmore, Ben, Locke, Jacob, Man in Black… will we ever find out who the good guys really are on Lost?
MICKEY: We asked Josh Holloway, who portrays Sawyer, one ethically complicated dude, what he thinks. “I think the whole beauty of this show and the intrigue has been the constant question of what is good and what is bad and what is right or wrong,” he says. “That is the entire crux of the show, so no, you’re never going to get a clear picture. You’re going to be left with that question to answer for yourself.” Next you’ll be telling me the numbers are just… numbers!

Latest from DocJensen – Damon and Carlton Answers

EW: The whole idea of flash-sideways and the plan to use season 6 to show us a world where Oceanic 815 never crashed — how long has that been in the works? Why did you want to do it?
DAMON LINDELOF: It’s been in play for at least a couple of years. We knew that the ending of the time travel season was going to be an attempt to reboot. And as a result, we [knew] the audience was going to come out of the “do-over moment” thinking we were either going start over or just say it didn’t work and continue on. [We thought] wouldn’t it be great if we did both? That was the origin of the story.
CARLTON CUSE: We thought just doing one [of those options] would inherently not be satisfying. Since the very beginning of the show, characters started crossing through each other’s stories. Part of our desire [in season 6] is to show that there’s still this kind of weave, that these characters still would have impacted each other’s lives even without the event of crashing on the Island. Obviously, the big question of the season is going to be: How do these [two timelines] reconcile? However, for the fans who have not watched the show closely, that’s an intact narrative. You can just watch the flash sideways — they stand alone all by themselves. For the fans who are more deeply embedded in the show, you can watch those flash sideways, compare them to what transpired in the flashbacks and go, “Oh, that’s an interesting difference.”
LINDELOF: Right out of the gate, in the first five minutes of the premiere, you get hit over the head with two things that you’re not expecting. The first is that Desmond is on the plane. The second thing that we do is we drop out of the plane and we go below the water and we see that the Island is submerged. What we’re trying to do there is basically say to you, “God bless the survivors of Oceanic 815, because they’re so self-centered, they thought the only effect [of detonating the bomb] was going to be that their plane never crashes.” But they don’t stop to think, “If we do this in 1977, what else is going to affected by this?” So that their entire lives can be changed radically. In fact, it would appear that they’ve sunken the Island. That’s our way of saying, “Keep your eyes peeled for the differences that you’re not expecting.” Some of these characters were still in Australia, but some weren’t. Shannon’s not there. Boone actually says that he tried to get her back. There are all sorts of other people that we don’t see. Where’s Libby? Where’s Ana Lucia? Where’s Eko? These are all the things that you’re supposed to be thinking about. When our characters posited the “What if?” scenario, they neglected to think about what the other effects of potentially changing time might be and we’re embracing those things.

That said, are you saying definitively that detonating Jughead was the event that created this new timeline? Or is that a mystery which the season 6 story will reveal?

LINDELOF: It’s a mystery. A big one.
CUSE: We did have some concern that it might be confusing kind of going into the season. To clear that up a little bit: The archetypes of the characters are the same and that’s the most significant thing. Kate is still a fugitive. If you were to look at the Comic-Con video, for instance, that now comes into play. There was a different scenario in that story. She basically blew up an apprentice plumber as opposed to killing her biological father/stepfather. Those kind of differences exist, but who the characters fundamentally are is the same. If it becomes too confusing for you, you can just follow the flash sideways for what they are. It’s not as though there’s narrative that hangs on the fact that you need to know that this event was different in that world, in the flashback world versus the sideways world. That’s not critical for being able to process the narrative this season.

Is there a relationship between Island reality and sideways reality? Will they run parallel for the remainder of the season? Will they fuse together? Might one fade away?

LINDELOF: For us, the big risk that we’re taking in the final season of the show is basically this very question. [Lindelof then explains the show has replaced the trademark “whoosh!” sound effect marking the segue between Island present story and flashbacks or flash-forwards, thus calling conspicuous attention to the relationship between the Island world and the Sideways world.] This is the critical mystery of the season, which is, “What is the relationship between these two shows?” And we don’t use the phrase “alternate reality,” because to call one of them an “alternate reality” is to infer that one of them isn’t real, or one of them is real and the other is the alternate to being real.
CUSE: But the questions you’re asking are exactly the right questions. What are we to make of the fact that they’re showing us two different timelines? Are they going to resolve? Are they going to connect? Are they going to co-exist in parallel fashion? Are they going to cross? Do they intersect? Does one prove to be viable and the other one not? I think those are all the kind of speculations that are the right speculations to be having at this point in the season.

LINDELOF: But it is going to require patience. We’ve taught the audience how to be patient thus far, so while they’re getting a lot of mythological answers on the island early in the season, this idea of what is the relationship between the two [worlds] is a little bit more of a slow burn.

Did Jughead really sink the Island? And is it possible that the Sideways characters are now caught in a time loop in which they might have to go back in time and fulfill the obligation to continuity by detonating the bomb?

LINDELOF: These questions will be dealt with on the show. Should you infer that the detonation of Jughead is what sunk the island? Who knows? But there’s the Foot. What do you get when you see that shot? It looks like New Otherton got built. These little clues [might help you] extrapolate when the Island may have sunk. Start to think about it. A couple of episodes down the road, some of the characters might even discuss it. We will say this: season 6 is not about time travel. It’s about the implications, the aftermath, and the causality of trying to change the past. But the idea of continuing to do paradoxical storytelling is not what we’re interested in this year.

Next Week Will Blow You Away: After you see the final 10 minutes of next week’s episode, it will become increasingly clear what the entire final season of Lost is leading up to. (I smell a war coming on!)
Get Ready for Two Surprising Reappearances: (1) A certain someone you thought was dead will be back, and how he or she returns, and what it means for the future of the other Losties on the island, will have your brain spinning. (2) Someone else appears in Los Angeles next week that I did not know was returning at all, and it’s awesome.
There Will Be Some Shipper Moments Next Week: Kate will have a tender moment with Jack, and she’ll also have a revealing moment with Sawyer, and there will definitely be some clear indication as to where the romantic storylines (or lack thereof) will be heading this season.
Richard Alpert Was a Slave?! The SMIB mentioned that Richard was in chains. There has long been talk that crew of the Black Rock (allegedly a mining vessel) were slaves, and when we’ve visited the ship in the past, skeletons were found shackled together. So was Alpert on the Black Rock? The good news is we will find out. Nestor Carbonell tells me: “You’re going to get all your answers: Why doesn’t he age? Where’s he from? What his powers might be? Who he is? And there is one specific episode that deals with all of that. I was blown away by what they wrote.” Can. Not. Wait.
Claire and Sayid Will Have Something in Common. Something big.

Kristin’s Red Carpet Interviews from the Premiere Party.

television at its very best. It is, as they say, a There is at least one moment that will make you shriek out loud in tonight’s two-hour Lost premiere, which is “game-changer.”

So what else is in store for this groundbreaking series’ final season? What about Walt? The Smoke Monster? Claire’s relation to Jack? I just chatted up the entire cast and show masterminds Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, and without giving away anything too spoilery (what’s the fun in that?), here’s what you absolutely need to know…

Will We See the Man in Black Again? Smokey? Jacob? Find out in the video above in the fun little game of “False, True or Hell No, I Won’t Tell You” that I played with some of the cast and producers. (I got much more scoop from them but it needs to hold til after the premiere so stand by for that.)

The Premiere Rocks. I’ll say it again: Tonight’s two-hour premiere is my favorite episode since Lost’s groundbreaking pilot five years ago. The show is instantly broader and more meaningful than it was before. It’s as if the fate of the whole world now depends on what is happening on this island…

There Will Be Answers. “Exactly 73 questions will be answered in the final season,” boss Carlton Cuse tells me, and naturally, he’s joking. “We’re going to answer the questions that matter to our characters,” Damon says in all seriousness. “If they care about it, then we’re going to answer it. If it affects their lives, than we’re going to deal with it.”

There Will Be Family Matters. Urkel is guest starring! I keed. When asked if Claire (Emilie de Ravin) will find out Jack is her brother, Matthew Fox tells me, “Yes, I think you’ll get an opportunity to see that.” And here’s my favorite tease from Michael Emerson (Ben) about the final season: “In the 13 episodes [we’ve shot so far], huge chucks of the puzzle have fallen into place. Some quite shocking, and some really satisfying. Some of those puzzle pieces answer whole families of questions. So the audience can have hope for resolution and satisfaction.” When asked if he specifically chose the word “families” for a particular reason, Emerson says knowingly: “You know that nothing is accidental with Lost.” Chills, meet spine.

What About Walt? Though Damon and Carlton say there are no current plans to bring Malcom David Kelley (Walt) back, his onscreen father is hopeful. “I’m hoping he’s the next leader of the island,” Harold Perrineau (Michael) tells me. “He starts it all over again. In 2012, Lost is back with Malcolm. He’s 20 feet tall now and can kick my ass.”

Sayid Might Be OK. His character was shot in the stomach when we last saw him, but as Naveen Andrews says in the clip above, “Lots of people have been in dire situations, right? And somehow, some way they pull through.”
The Very End Will Satisfy Some of You. “The ending we promise you will be very emotional,” Carlton explains. “That’s what we think matters, what happens to the characters.

The Premiere Was Leaked. In case you didn’t hear, the premiere episode was leaked on YouTube via fan videos taken at Sunday’s Hawaii beach event, but here’s the truly incredible thing: Very few of you have actually clicked to watch it (many vidoes received only a few hundred hits), recognizing that you didn’t wait all this time to watch some lame shaky FlipCam version of this visually inspiring series. And that is why I heart you.

Just Wait Till You See Next Week’s Episode. More on that in tonight’s first Lost Redux (should be posted about 10 pm ET/7 pm PT), but I now know what’s in store for next week and in all seriousness could not sleep last night thinking about all the ramifications of it. It will be an entirely different series with an entirely different framework after the end of next Tuesday’s episode.

Why I’m Not Saying More Till You See It: As Daniel Dae Kim puts it, “Because people have waited so long for answers, and because they’re coming out, it’s probably best to be a little more tight-lipped than usual.” Wise words from a guy I adore, so I’m heeding ’em.
That said, I would absolutely love to meet any of you who are interested in “watching” the premiere with me in the comments section below tonight from 8 to 10 pm ET (sorry, West Coasters, but you can read the exchange afterward?). Join me if you’d like, and I’ll answer the questions I can?If you promise to hold me tight when Terry O’Quinn’s big moment is revealed.

TV Guide’s 13 Questions with Damon and Carlton

TVGuide.com: Is the reset going to be a theme of this season or are you playing with the audience?
Cuse: I think it wouldn’t be Lost if we weren’t playing with the audience a little bit, but by the end of the premiere, you’ll have a sense of what we’re doing. We’re still doing the same thing we’ve always done on the show, which is island storytelling and off-island storytelling. It just now starts to take on a different form in the final season. Like every season, each season is a distinct entity, so by the end of the premiere, you should have a sense of what Season 6 is shaping up to be like.

TVGuide.com: Michael Emerson said instead of storylines coming together, the threads keep spreading out. Do you feel like everything will come together at the end or will it keep spreading?

Cuse: I’m not sure I agree with Michael. He might have been toying with you, because we do feel like there’s a certain circularity to the show. In the same way that the show started, we’re going to come back around to some of the main characters from the first season of the show. To us, the most important thing is, what are these character’s destinies? What are their fates? What’s going to happen to them? Those are the questions we’re really interested in answering. Along the way, we’re going to tackle some of the mythological biggies, like what’s the smoke monster? You’ll learn more about the nature of the island. You’ll learn more about Jacob and the Man in Black. Those are the things we feel are important as opposed to what kind of research was the Dharma Initiative doing on polar bears.

TVGuide.com: Will there be more on the numbers or will that never really be answered?
Cuse: There is definitely more about the numbers in Season 6. I think it will be an individual decision as to whether you’ll walk away satisfied by the answer because there’s a fundamental conundrum where any question begets another question. It’s the Big Bang conundrum. The universe started with the Big Bang, but once you accept that you ask what came before the Big Bang. So at a certain point you can’t definitively answer a question in a way that doesn’t lead to other questions. Everyone is going to have to find their comfort level with the show.

TVGuide.com: Will the final season be no holds barred? Can anyone die?
Cuse: The mantra of the final season in a certain way is, “Anything can happen, be prepared.” We are nearing the end, so if there are any constraints that govern a series, they really go away in the final season. We always felt like Lost was at its best when it was really surprising. We did things that were unexpected. We do have a few surprises up our sleeves for this season, which we think are really exciting.

TVGuide.com: You already know who is going to die in the end?
Cuse: Yes, we have our game plan for how the season will end. Significant discisions like that have definitely been resolved by now. We’re still writing the scripts, but we, ourselves, know the fates of the characters.

TVGuide.com: What can you say of the Man in Black?
Cuse: People who are curious about the Man in Black will get more answers this season for sure. We recognize that that character is mysterious and cryptic and we promise that we will give you more details about who he is.

TVGuide.com: Is Jacob really dead?
Cuse: Is Jacob really dead? Yeah, I mean we’ve always said that when characters die on Lost they die. He was stabbed, he was dead. Of course, dead characters show up in other incarnations. We have a narrative structure of our show which allows us to have our cake and eat it too. Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean we don’t see you on the show, but was Jacob killed by Ben? The answer is yes.

TVGuide.com: Yes, and Harold Perrineau is among those who’s back despite being dead.
Cuse: Yeah, and he’s back on the show this year, so you’ll see Harold on the show and that’s really exciting for us, but he did die on the freighter.

TVGuide.com: Is Kate going to end up with Jack or Sawyer or end up alone?
Cuse: Well, we know what’s going to happen to her, but we’re not going to tip what’s happening to her. But we definitely know what the resolutions of the characters are and we know that people care a lot about the Kate, Jack, Sawyer, Juliet quadrangle and that will be something that you’ll definitely get some resolution on this season.
Lindelof: And I think it’s great that you actually present that Kate might end up alone as an option, because a lot of people say, “Is it going to be Jack or is it going to be Sawyer?” But that presupposes way too many things that they’re not fully aware of in the final season. So there may be a couple of other options that are in play that people aren’t considering yet.

Some more filming details: episode nine is definitely Alpert-centric, and the Black Rock is definitely a prison ship. Also, we see an Ilana scene taking place at an old hospital in Russia, suggesting that Ilana is tied in with Alpert’s backstory somehow. Separately, there’s a scene with Jin working in a hotel, and Sun was there too. Also filming in the same location was a Keamy/Omar scene, and Mikhail was there and spoke Korean. There was also a Jin scene involving the same community college where Hurley’s asylum was filmed. And a scene at a nice house with Hurley and Alpert. (SpoilersLost)

An ABC spokesperson confirms that there is no deal in place for Maggie Grace to return to Lost at this time. […] I know most of you have heard about the “alt Lost ” this season, and so have I. But I’m also told that the thing that I’m pretty sure needs to happen for “alt Lost ” to happen does not happen. […] “[Rose] and Jack will be reunited, and this time it will feel so good!” […] We already know that Rebecca Mader (Charlotte) is back on Lost in some capacity this season, but what’s the real deal behind her resurrection? “I can’t say,” she tells us with a grin. And just why not? “Because it’s really, really, really, really, really, really exciting and I don’t want to ruin it. It’s too good to say.” (Yes, she really said really that many times!) And on that note, this is the most revealing thing we were able to get out of her: “It’s going to blow people’s heads off.” Source: Kristin on E!Online

At the school, Alex (Tania Raymonde) is actually a student at this school where Ben is a teacher. She is still “close” to Ben. Also spotted at the school are both, boom boom, Doc Arzt and Rose! No sign of Bernard. One of the new guests that you posted, William Atherton, was on the set. He is actually the Principle of the school, however I’ll leave you with this cryptic snippet. Although he is the principle, that may not actually be his only role! Locke and Ben both work at the School. Source: Lost Spoilers

In order of the clues: Atherton was in both Die Hard and Die Hard 2, his character’s name in Ghost Busters was Walter Peck, on Desperate Housewives he played Dr. Barr and the 62-year-old actor was also Charlie Crews’ nemesis on Life.

Titus Welliver: Lost‘s Season-Ending Mystery Isn’t Black and White

Source: TV Guide Online

Titus Welliver probably thought he had seen it all during his run as Deadwood resident Silas Adams. But then he appeared on Lost for all of 1 minute and 45 seconds, and in short order his world — as well as that of the ABC drama — shifted forever. Who was this mysterious “man in black” taunting Jacob on the beach in the Season 5 finale prologue? What did he mean with the observation, “They come. Fight. They destroy. They corrupt. It always ends the same”? And why did this “Man No. 2” so desperately want to find the loophole necessary to one day kill Jacob? Review our round-up of season-finale cliffhangers Welliver, who now has a recurring role on CBS’ The Good Wife (premiering Sept. 22), shared a look inside the far-from-black-and-white nature of his Lost visit.

TVGuide.com: How does it feel to be dropped into the zeitgeist that is Lost?
Titus Welliver:
It’s pretty insane. It’s pretty insane. This is a completely different thing for me. At the street level, it has been crazy. People — from all walks of life — come up and say, “Now, you possessed Locke…?” “Are you in fact Locke?” “Has the character of Locke been created from you, and this was a whole setup to crash the plane?”

TVGuide.com: The funny thing is they can only refer to you as “you,” because they didn’t give your character a name. By what name did you know him?
He has no name. He’s just “the man,” because they don’t want to give anything away. I know that this character has a name and I know the importance of it; that’s all that I know.

TVGuide.com: So you don’t know his actual name?
No — and I think they deliberately withheld that.

TVGuide.com: Were you only given the script pages for your scene?
No, I got a whole script. But the thing is, unless you’re watching the show weekly, you’ve no bloody idea what’s going on. It’s not a show that you can just drop into the middle of. I had watched Lost during the first season, but then life and children sort of prevent one from being able to consistently stay with something.

Fall TV grid: See what’s on and when

TVGuide.com: Did the producers give you any notes on what the dynamic should be between you and Mark Pellegrino‘s Jacob?
Liz Sarnoff, one of the writers on the show, is actually an old colleague from a show that we did with David Milch, Big Apple, and from Deadwood. Her explanation was that Jacob sees man as being a flawed creature, but that there is always hope, whereas my character has a much more cynical but in some ways realistic view of man. She said, “Now extrapolate from that what you will. Are they waxing philosophical? Are they gods?” What occurs to me as I watch Locke mention the loophole and pitch Jacob into the fire is, “Clearly this other man on the beach has inhabited Locke on some level” — and it never suspends your belief simply because of how intricate the mysterious nature of the show is. You never say, “Aw, c’mon.” I find it interesting that the audience completely buys into what [the writers] put in front of them.

TVGuide.com: Fans have all sorts of theories on the Jacob-Man No. 2 relationship. Some see the obvious parallels with the Bible’s Jacob and Esau, but there are also a wealth of Egyptian comparisons…
Yeah, the Esau thing seems to dominate the extrapolating conversations. People on the subway say, “Are you Esau?” The interactions are that random.

TVGuide.com: Do you think it’s as simple as one of these guys is good and the other evil?
The way that I interpreted it, on a biblical level, is that it’s a sort of Cain-and-Abel scenario. So by destroying Jacob, what does that prove — that [the man in black] can ultimately have power over the island? Do the castaways become solely his playthings? And why was it so important that he find the loophole to be able to kill Jacob? That moved me in the direction of thinking that if he needs this loophole, there’s a greater power than the two of them that they’re answering to.

TVGuide.com: Right, someone had to establish that loophole. Some giant, cosmic lawyer.
[Laughs] Exactly. What [the producers] said to me was, “No hand-wringing” — and I said, “Certainly not,” I didn’t want to do the Snidely Whiplash thing — “and understand that this is kind of a chess game,” hence the fact that one’s in black and one’s in white. But are they part of the chess game… or are they the players?

TVGuide.com: It seems like Jacob could have one last ace up his sleeve, as evidenced by him saying before dying, “They’re coming.” He may have put one final countermeasure in place.
Oh, yeah. Somebody asked me about that — “Is your character going to just take over?” — and of course I don’t have the answer. But as a viewer I think, “It can’t be that easy to get rid of Jacob.”

Michael Emerson Talks About Season 6 and Jacob

Anyways do you have any more Lost scoop? Ausiello: May’s series finale is going to be a real downer, predicts Michael Emerson. “I don’t think Lost will have a happy ending,” he confessed to us at the Saturn Awards. “It’s the end and I think we are going to start seeing more casualties. I would put money on major characters being killed. I believe it will be a sad ending to the show — or at least bittersweet. I think it will definitely be a series finale for grownups.” Emerson, meanwhile, is still trying to make sense of the season 5 finale. (Join the club!) “I killed Jacob… maybe… probably,” he hedged. “It isn’t like we haven’t seen plenty of other people be killed and somehow come back. And what does it mean if I did kill him? I Who the hell was he anyway? Obviously, Ben wanted a father. So much of our show is about bad fathers. It is one of our biggest themes. And Jacob disappointed in those final moments. And maybe Jacob made it easy for him. Maybe that was all meant to happen. Is it all ordained? Maybe. And for that matter, can Jacob even be killed? Stay tuned is my response.” Source: EW

Latest on Potential Return of Dead Losties in Season 6

The exec producer of Ian Somerhalder’s new CW series, The Vampire Diaries, is close friends with Lost exec producer Damon Lindelof. So when he’s not sucking blood in the South, Ian may reappear on the island as Boone. While apartment hunting in Atlanta, where Diaries shoots, with his new on-screen vampire brother Paul Wesley, Ian tells me, “I’ve heard a little bit about what’s happening this season on Lost, and there’s definitely an avenue they’re going down to bring back a lot of us.” Any crossover [with] Lost would “only help the success of our show…as long as it’s not screwing up production,” Ian says. So what if Boone, Shannon, Charlie and the rest of Lost’s “living dead” turn out to be vampires? “That would not be good,” says the actor, who currently lives around the corner from Maggie Grace (Shannon) in Venice Beach. “There are already enough vampires flying around the airwaves. If we can keep it at True Blood, Twilight and Vampire Diaries, the world will be better off!” Source: TV Guide

Latest from TV Guide Magazine

“What the hell’s going on with Lost? I don’t think they know. I think from week to week they go, ‘Let’s do this.’ And then someone else says, ‘No, this would be a good idea.’ I love that show, but I don’t think they know what they’re doing.” —Ellen DeGeneres

“I am flattered that Ellen is a fan of our show,” says exec producer Carlton Cuse, who promises Ellen there is a master plan, with some sweet payoffs, if she sticks through the final season. Dominic Monaghan recently had a secret breakfast meeting with producer Damon Lindelof to discuss how he might manage returning to Lost as Charlie. “We would like there to be some visitations from people we’ve loved over time,” Cuse says. Michael Emerson, who plays Ben, confirms, “The final season will resemble the first. I know there are plans for big people we have parted company with to reappear.” But one crucial component from the very first pilot episode will most likely be absent from the reunion: cocreator J.J. Abrams, who tells me he won’t be returning to Hawaii to direct the series finale. “I would selfishly love it,” he says, “but director Jack Bender has been living in Hawaii for years and doing amazing work. For me to come in and direct the finale would be cruel and unusual.”

Any word on Mark Pellegrino being on Lost next season, or is Jacob really dead? We posed that question to Michael Emerson who claims he doesn’t know the fate of Jacob, but since Ben was the one to stab him, we don’t quite believe him. “I have no idea, honestly, I wonder. I can’t wait to see that next script,” he says. The cast of Lost goes back to Hawaii in the middle of August to shoot the final season, and Michael is really looking forward to it: “It’s certainly bittersweet, but it’s sort of exciting to know that they’re not going to string it out. They are going to end that sucker in 17 episodes. I can’t wait to see how they do it.” We can’t either! Source: Kristin on E!Online

I was so happy to hear about Charlie, Shannon and Claire returning to Lost next season, and then so bummed to find out that nothing except Claire is for sure yet. What’s the current status of various dead castmembers returning to Lost? Even though Dominic Monaghan is said to be appearing on another ABC show next season, reportedly Flash Forward, we’re just paranoid enough to think it might be a double cross, and that D.M. might actually be heading back to Lost after (or in addition to) whatever else he does on the Alphabet Net. Why do we think this? Because very reliable sources now tell us that there is “mutual interest” (between the Lost PTB and Dominic Monaghan) in bringing about a season-six return visit by Charlie Pace. Look for official developments in the next week or two. Source: E!Online


Question: I miss Claire on Lost. Emilie de Ravin is such a great actress. Will she be back for all of next season?
Yes! After sitting out last season, de Ravin will return as a full-time series regular for Lost‘s sixth and final season, Team Darlton confirms. “Damon and I are very excited to bring Claire back to the show,” says Carlton Cuse, “and even more excited for people to experience just how she will return.” And even more exciting that that? Experiencing Doc Jensen’s theory on how she’ll return. Take it away, DJ:

“Any scenario that brings Claire back to Lost must address the mysterious circumstances of her disappearance at the end of season 4, in which many of us were led to believe that she was as dead — or rather, undead — as the Ghost Christian that’s been haunting The Island since season 1. So here’s one thought: Juliet changed time in the season finale by detonating Jughead, and season 6 will tell the story of the new timeline, one in which Claire is alive. Another thought: In light of the revelation that John Locke was actually a supernatural impostor for half of season 5, perhaps in season 6, we’ll get a storyline in which Claire just emerges out of the jungle, with no memory of what happened to her — just like season 1 — and we and the castaways will be left to wonder: Is this the real Claire or another impostor infiltrating them a la Locke? Heck, maybe that’s going to be the major idea of next season: Who’s really alive and who’s really (un)dead? It really will be the fabled zombie season of Lost!”  Source: The Ausiello Files

Spoiler alert: ‘Lost’ mystery solved!

Source: The Ausiello Files

How very sneaky of you, ABC. Dominic Monaghan appearing in ABC’s new promo campaign has nothing whatsoever to do with Charlie being resurrected on Lost next season. But that’s exactly what the network wants folks to think. Why? Because they’re trying to keep under wraps the real reason he was playing table soccer with Patrick Dempsey, Courteney Cox, and Ed O’Neill in that clip. This is the part where I warn you of an incoming spoiler and give you one last chance to bail before continuing on… Okay, here it goes: The real reason Monaghan is featured in that cheeky spot is because he’s actually joining the cast of another hour-long ABC drama series as a full-time series regular. And the net’s brass want it to be a surprise. A big surprise. But don’t let that stop you from posting your theories in the comments section. Which ABC show do you think Monaghan is joining full time? And what character do you think he’ll be playing? Speculate away!

‘Lost’ scoop: Juliet mystery (sort of) solved

Source: The Ausiello Files

And now for some news that should surprise no one: ABC is expected to announce tomorrow that it has picked up a reboot of the camptastic ’80s thriller V and that Lost heroine Elizabeth Mitchell is a full-time castmember. Translation: She will not be returning to Lost as a series regular. However, before you go declaring Juliet DOA from last week’s detonated hydrogen bomb, I should point out that this piece of scoop comes with a big but attached: Mitchell’s Lost days are not done. Multiple sources confirm that the actress is expected to appear in an unspecified number of episodes next season, so it’s entirely possible Juliet survived Jughead and her absence will be explained in another way.

Ghost Whisperer Episode Recap 4.23 ‘The Book of Changes’

‘Ghost Whisperer’: Melinda’s death on 2509

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

The finale was good, but it left us with no cliffhangers, and a timeline that was unrealistic, if would be impossible for Melinda’s due date to be September 25, if Jim died on November 7, that’s nearly an 11 month pregnancy! The baby should have been due in July….

This week on “Ghost Whisperer,” we have a creepy sort-of prophecy about Melinda’s due date and her baby, a little girl running around with no face, and a wedding in the street.


Mystery of the Week
Melinda keeps having dreams that she gives birth to a bassinet full of hairless cats. Yikes. Then Melinda sees a little girl with a melty, no-features face in her house. The little girl tries to show her an old, leather book and keeps giggling. Funny how sometimes children’s laughter is so precious and sometimes it’s freak-me-the-eff-out scary. Later, Melinda runs into the faceless child again, who puts her hand on Melinda’s belly and says, “You can’t save her. You can’t.” Jim tries to reassure her that it’s not about the baby and then spills the beans that they’re having a boy, so it can’t be about the baby. Awww.

The old book the little girl was holding turns out to be from the school’s Von Drake collection. It is stolen by a local thief (who is actually being controlled by Carl the Watcher) and given to Zoe Ramos to protect, only Zoe is so surprised by the thief in her house that she falls down the stairs and dies.

Zoe’s spirit hangs around to get Eli to protect the book because there is a man named Jeremy Bishop trying to find it too. He won’t say who he’s working for but he is clearly a bad dude. The book is called The Book of Changes and when Eli finds the book in Zoe’s closet, it opens to a page that says: Jim Clancy 711, Sam Lucas 1411, Andrea Marino 2804, Eli James 310 and Zoe Ramos 2505. Creepy. (Also, I always thought Andrea’s last name was “Moreno,” but whatever.)

Eli crashes Melinda’s wedding/baby shower to tell her about the book. When she holds it, she flashes back to Jim’s death and realizes that each name is followed by the date the person died. Eli then shows her another page in the book. This one says “Melinda Gordon 2509,” which is her due date. Now that is creepy.

Once Eli has the book and agrees to protect it, he and Zoe say their goodbyes and she crosses over. Melinda goes down into the Tunnels of Doom to see Carl the Watcher. He advises her to teach her child about the other side, not shield him from it, because her child will be able to do much, much more than she can. Very ominous cliffhanger in the supernatural part of the show.

The Wedding
Gordon Brady, ambassador of love and dreamweaver extraordinaire, shows up to plan Melinda’s wedding, on orders from Melinda’s mom. Yikes. It’s like Mother-of-the-Bride-zilla with a Rupert Giles accent. He ditches the DJ and hires an orchestra, wants them all to arrive at the church by horse-drawn carriage and picks out an ice sculpture for the reception. At the end of the episode, Jim kidnaps Melinda (in a white dress and everything!) and the two of them (plus Delia and Eli) head to the street where Jim and Melinda first met. He pledges his eternal love to her and they get married right there on the spot, surrounded by white light ghosts. Awww.

Smallville Season 8 Finale Recap ‘Doomsday’ Jimmy Dies!

FinaleWatch: Death spares not ‘Smallville’

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

On this Very Special Episode of ‘Smallville,” Clark finally learns the true meaning of carpe diem… though it comes far too late to save one that has been close to him for a long time.

“Cosmic Boy” Rokk makes a cameo appearance on the roof of the Daily Planet to present Clark with another Legion ring… seeing as how he destroyed the last one. Rokk also drops word that, because of Clark’s mad respect for Chloe, he is destined to die tomorrow. Rokk can be a real downer sometimes. Speaking of bad tidings, Tess has been robbed of her precious orb, while over in Edge City, Chloe and Davis do a little stargazing.

The next day, Clark is typing his “goodbye cruel world” letter to the masses when Lois shows up on one hell of a caffeine buzz. She’s mad that he’s not doing more to find Chloe. To shut her up, he whooshes to a nearby phone booth only to call her as the Red/Blue Blur… here to save the day. With his help comes a price: publish the letter. She hesitates on that demand while making one of her own. If he agrees to meet her, she’ll go through with it. He sets a midnight meeting for a downtown phone booth. Heh.

After a prolonged absence, Bart and Dinah (Impulse and Black Canary) return to help Clark plan his attack: lure Doomsday to the Luthor Geothermal Facility, where he (it?) will be blown to bits. Oliver appears in the barn to (once again) voice his disapproval at the idea. Clark notes that Oliver isn’t the man he once was, what with the killing of Lex and whatnot. It seems Bart and Dinah can be easily swayed, because later that night, they team up with Oliver to stop Clark in his tracks with an Evil Kryptonite Dart!

Somehow, Jimmy got his hands on a decryption key for Tess’ computer… where he literally stumbles upon Lois. Together, they find a program tracking Chloe and Davis, which allows for Jimmy to make a hasty exit. Lois stays behind to watch video of Tess acquiring the orb and the impending doom should she decide to use it. Speak of the devil herself, Tess tries to keep Lois from finding out more about the orb, which leads to a catfight in the newsroom.

This time, it’s Jimmy who plays hero to Clark, removing the dart. As his reward, his use of context clues finally yields a positive outcome: Clark confirms to him that he is indeed the Red/Blue Blur. Before there’s too much explanation, he whooshes away to the geothermal facility… where he’s too late to the Doomsday party. Turns out, Chloe is no longer calming Davis enough to keep from unleashing the beast, so it’s determined that he must die. Oliver lines up his shot, but Chloe forces the Black Kryptonite onto Davis, causing the man and beast to become separate entities.

Clark joins the Doomsday Downtown Destruction already in progress. He saves a little girl from certain death, but after the beast knocks Clark into next Thursday, that apparently is the last straw. Our hero musters all his strength to blast him and Doomsday out of Metropolis and straight into the geothermal facility… which proceeds to explode in a fiery fury.

Later, Jimmy takes Chloe and Davis to what was supposed to be his final wedding present to his bride: a new home overlooking the city complete with a large stained-glass window. His reasoning was that no matter where she is in Metropolis, she could always look up and see home. Jimmy also reveals his knowledge of Clark’s secret AND apologizes to Chloe for not being more understanding of her situation. It’s a good thing they kiss, because Davis takes the opportunity to impale Jimmy with a large pipe. He seems upset that Chloe wasn’t really on his side, but working for/with Clark all along. She begs for her life, which distracts him long enough for himself to receive a metal pipe through the chest, courtesy of Jimmy. While Davis immediately dies, Jimmy dies the hero’s death in Chloe’s arms.

Jimmy’s funeral is sparsely attended: Chloe is there along with Bart and Dinah. Oliver stands on the other side, shedding his single tear. Clark is there, too… lurking in the background. Later at the stained-glass house, our hero pleads to Chloe to get rid of the place. She envisions it as a literal WatchTower; a place where the League can assemble to do the most good. Sensing he may no longer be useful to anyone, Clark pouts that perhaps he cares too much about humanity. Clark Kent is now apparently dead, having walked out on Chloe (who is now literally all alone.)

We end the eighth season with Tess heading toward the light that has illuminated the Castle Luthor background. I can only imagine what she’s thinking when out from the orb appears a figure in human form standing in the middle of a burning symbol of Zod.

‘Smallville’: Find out why they killed Jimmy

Source: The Ausiello Files

Aaronashmore_lWARNING: Stop reading if you have not watched the season finale of Smallville. I mean it. Everyone else, onward and downward…

Talk about dodging a tall loophole with a single bound. In tonight’s season finale, Smallville managed to kill off an iconic Superman character without incurring the wrath of the evil mythos police. I’m referring, of course, to the death of Jimmy Olsen at the hands of a de-Doomsdayed Davis. The show later revealed (or strongly implied?) that the shutterbug’s younger brother is, in fact, the real Jimmy. Problem solved! Of course, that’s little consolation to Aaron Ashmore, whose three-year stint as faux Jimmy ended with a steel pipe through the chest. In this exclusive interview, Ashmore reveals why he was caught off guard by his dismissal, how he’d feel about a Chloe-Clark romance, and who he thinks really killed Jimmy Olsen.

When did you find out that Jimmy wasn’t long for this world?
About six months ago, right around the time we finished shooting “Bride.” I knew that Jimmy was going to get hurt in that episode and go on a little hiatus, so I talked to the producers and asked, “Guys, where is this storyline going?” And they said, “Well, we have an idea to send Jimmy on a bit of a downward spiral and, in the end, sacrifice himself for Chloe.” That’s what I originally heard. I didn’t know that that was necessarily going to happen this season. It happened a little sooner than I had anticipated.

Were you disappointed?
Of course. I really enjoyed working on the show; to be sent off kind of sucks. But, at the same time, it works great for the story. And all things run their course. I guess Jimmy on Smallville had run his course.

Any chance he’s not really dead?
I don’t think so. Not that I’ve heard.

When word leaked that two major characters were dying, no one suspected Jimmy because of the whole mythos thing. Did you think you were safe because of that?
Absolutely. That was my first reaction. That being said, Smallville has taken some little turns here and there from the comic books.

So, Jimmy’s little brother is the real Jimmy, right?
That’s how I read it. There’s always been a bit of a discrepancy in how old Jimmy is compared to Clark and Lois, so this is a way of clarifying things. Jimmy [is supposed to be] 10 years younger than them, so Jimmy’s little brother showing up totally makes it stick to the mythos.

What reason did producers give you for killing him off?
I know when [the idea of] Jimmy coming to Smallville first came up, DC Comics had a bit of a problem because of the age difference thing. But the producers really wanted to bring the character in because they thought they could do some interesting stuff with him. I believe [producers] had reassured DC that by the end of the series — or at some point — they would rectify that [by making it clear that he’s] not the real Jimmy Olsen.

How do you think fans will react to Jimmy’s death?
It’s a mixed bag. It depends if you like Jimmy or not. There are a lot of people that probably think he’s a really annoying, bumbling kind of guy, which, you know, there’s no doubt about that. He’s not the hero; he’s the everyman. And I always questioned why people got so annoyed by that. [On the other hand], I think people who are big Jimmy fans are going to be bummed. But I think it’s a nice way for him to go. I think he redeems himself and [emerges as] a bit of a hero after being so self-conscious and jealous [this season]. He had a lot of good qualities as well, but he took a dark turn at the end. I’ll be interested to see how people take it.

Are you a “Chlark” fan?
Abso… well…. romantically, I don’t know if it would work. That’s yet to be seen. But there’s a very strong bond between those two characters. And you can see it in the show. Their scenes together are always really great, and they’re always played really well by Allison [Mack] and Tom [Welling]. The connection is really, really nice.

What’s next for you?
I’m headed to L.A. tomorrow to hit the job hunt. I ‘m in Toronto right now, where I just shot an episode of The Bridge. It’s a Canadian-produced television show that CBS picked up. It’s a procedural cop drama and I get to play a beat copy, which was really sweet. It’s tough after being out of the audition game for three years. I’m going to try and see what the options are.

Ugly Betty Episode Recap 3.22 ‘In The Stars’

Adele and aliens invade ‘Ugly Betty’s’ wedding

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

It’s wedding madness on “Ugly Betty,” and that means workplace powerplays, relationship soul-searching and proposals — of the matrimonial and indecent kind. Oh, and British soul sensation Adele.

The Sketches and Patterns

– Marc, Betty and Matt are assigned a final YETI project — mix music and physical science for a creative photo shoot that could make or break their futures. They have a fun idea: Get a singer (Adele) to perform at an alien-themed affair at the Planetarium. Genius, eh? Problem is, Matt’s bored with publishing and wants to focus on art, so he’s slacking big time.
– Cal Hartley questions Wilhelmina’s judgment when she presents a black wedding dress layout and tells Claire to collaborate with her creatively. Yeah, that’ll work.
– Elena is looking into a great job opportunity in California, so Papi’s upset that she’s thinking of a future without him. He doesn’t do the bicoastal apparently.
– Daniel is uncertain about the wisdom of proposing to terminal Molly, but eventually decides it’s worth it because of the happiness it will bring her.

The Fitting and Sewing

– Mama Hartley pleads with Betty to use her wiles to convince Matt to at least finish the project so he’s not doomed to a life as a declasse dilettante, since he has a pattern of doing that (Exhibit A: Slideshow of almost achievements). Our good girl is conflicted, but does convince Matt to put some effort into the project as a last hurrah, and he comes through … until he discovers his mom’s meddling.
– Wilhelmina and Claire. The claws come out. A model’s dress is ripped in the process. ‘S okay. It was ugly.
– With the Suarez family seal of approval, Papi proposes to Elena, who doesn’t exactly jump up and down and scream, “Si!”
– Wedding planning starts out swimmingly with Daniel bowing to Molly’s wishes, but then she calls the whole thing off. And it’s not cuz he says “toe-MAH-toe.” Wedding planning is all surface stuff, and Molly gets all existential since this will not make her life perfect.

The Runway Show

– Matt comes to his senses and assures Betty that while he’s a flibbertigibbet with his vocations, he’s constant in his love for her. To prove it, he gets the previously canceled Adele to show up at the Planetarium for the shoot. As guest stars go, she was kinda sweet. Happy ending all around cuz they won the project.
– The Meade women go to Hartley, and Claire acknowledges that Willie is right, bowing out of the catfight for the good of the magazine. The twist is that this focus on the company’s well-being impresses Cal, and he promotes Claire to Sr. VP of Meade, which means she’s now Wil’s boss. Ha!
– In another act of sacrifice, Papi encourages Elena to pursue the job in California by buying her a ticket (a little extreme, no?), saying that if he’s committed to her, he’s committed to what’s good for her. Aww! Lady, figure out how to have them both.
– Daniel and Molly have an impromptu wedding at Betty’s Planetarium shoot, and it’s all kinds of weird and fun. As they’re packing for their honeymoon in Bora Bora, Molly collapses …

The Buyers Say …

– Matt is showing more and more kinks in his armor. I understand not everyone can find one thing to be super-passionate about, but that does not mean shirking responsibility and leaving your teammates and girlfriend in the lurch. Get over yourself for the time it takes to finish the project and then moon over art. Selfish jerk.
– I wasn’t thrilled with Wilhelmina’s contrived way to stay at Mode, so I’m psyched that Claire will be more active on the magazine and has hand over her.  – How awesome was it that was Jodie coming onto Marc? It’s about time he was preyed upon. I still miss Cliff though.
– Fun quote — Betty: “We can’t just paint stars on your ceiling and call it the Planetarium. This is Adele, not Amy Winehouse.”
– I know shows need to be creative about advertisers, but the Cherry 7-up plug was pretty clunky.
– One of my favorite just plain oddball moments: Wilhelmina shrieks, “Out of my way, alien,” at an alien and then screams silently behind the glass.
– Where can I steal Claire’s chunky turquoise necklace?
– I like Daniel, but the whole Molly storyline still isn’t working for me. Does that make me dead inside?
– Where’s Archie? I want a good Hilda or Justin subplot soonest.

Bones Season Finale Episode Recap ‘The End in the Beginning’ – It was all a Dream!

‘Bones’ Finale: What the hell was THAT?

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

Remember when some Obama press conferences threatened to bump this episode of “Bones” to next year, and fans raised a stink to make sure we got to see it? Perhaps our president was just looking out for us…. Yes, “Booth” and “Brennan” get busy — naked busy. Yes, they proclaim their love for each other. Yes, “Zack” returns. Yes, we see all the various lab assistants, and Jared is there, and Max, and Carolyn… and none of it matters, because it’s either Brennan’s new book (which she wisely deletes) or Booth’s coma-induced hallucination. Possibly both. What it isn’t is any good. “People say you only live once — but people are as wrong about that as they are about everything else.” So sayeth Hodgins’ voiceover, which ushers us into some B&B nookie. They’re smiley and happy and the bom, it chicka-wows, for about 5 seconds. But this Booth isn’t our Booth, and this Brennan isn’t our Brennan, they’re married nightclub owners, and a body is discovered in their club — “The Lab.” Just about all the recurring characters we’ve run into are connected to the club in some way:

  • Zack = Brennan’s assistant
  • Wendell = the club’s “doorman”/Booth’s heavy
  • Fisher = the club’s chef
  • Vincent Nigel-Murray = the club’s DJ
  • Angela = the club’s hostess
  • Hodgins = a pulp mystery writer who frequents the bar
  • Sweets = a bartender and aspiring musician
  • Daisy = a… slutty girl who has some unspecified role at the club and no rhythm
  • Cam = a detective
  • Jared = Cam’s partner — and he’s still Booth’s brother
  • Max = a corrupt councilman
  • Carolyn = the club’s lawyer
  • Clark = C-Synch, a rapper and MC who wants to play the club
  • Arastoo = a Persian real estate magnate who wants to buy the club
  • Gormogon = the name of Sweets’ band
  • The Gravedigger = a potentially mythical mobster who controls the city, and has Max in his pocket.

The dead guy was found in the bathroom, knocked out a shot in the head. Brennan — Bren in this incarnation — was working late but heard nothing. Cam thinks she must be having an affair, but of course she’s not because she and Booth — here it’s called Mr. B — are so very, very in love. The dead guy is was a mob heavy. Was he sent by The Gravedigger to intimidate Booth for not paying protection money? Was he sent by Arastoo to intimidate them into selling? Was he sent by C-Synch or his gangster brother to  intimidate them into booking him in the club? Was he pulled bodily from the nether regions of the writers’ after a particularly bad Jägermeister-and-hot-wings binge? Who knows?

Everyone at the club thinks Mr. B did the deed, because he loves Bren so very much and would do anything to protect her. So they go about obstructing justice 3in various ways — Zach handles the gun, which he finds in Vincent’s DJ equipment, destroying any prints that may be on it. Angela neglects to show a map of the club she drew for the dead guy — she wants to be an interior designer, so…. she draws floor plans of existing clubs on napkins?). Zack and Sweets hide, then destroy, Bren’s coat, which was used as a silencer. The list goes on.

After some banter and a few clues — Max says Jared works for The Gravedigger! Cam says Jared has a thing for Brennan! Max tells everyone not to use cell phone, because They can track your every movement! — Bren, Mr. B and Cam figure out that Jared was the culprit. He killed the mob heavy to protect Bren, because he loves her. He looks like he’s going to commit suicide by cop/Cam, but Bren gets between them and convinces him to put down the gun. Then Mötley Crüe plays, and it looks like Jared will walk for lack of evidence, and everyone lives happily ever after.

All of which served to kill time until we got to the big moment — our Brennan, the real Brennan, at the real Booth’s bedside when he wakes up. The operation was a success, but he had a bad reaction to the anesthesia and he’s been in a coma for four days. Booth talks about how real that weird dream he just had felt, then looks at Brennan. “Who are you?” Dun dun DUN! Wait, they had to give us 43 minutes of pointless story just to get us to that one moment? Really? Sigh.

Highlights, thoughts and odds and ends

  • The show apparently hoped to distract us from the train wreck of a script by giving us some decent lines and some fun visuals. We see Booth in a sleeveless shirt, and later in his boxers and a shirt. He also sports a fetching pink robe at one point. Brennan is working the four-inch stilettos and pencil skirts.
  • Bren is still very logical, while Mr. B is all emotion
  • Fisher, on Zack’s reaction to discovering the body: “He screamed like slutty girl number one in a teen horror flick.”
  • UnSweets on his employment: “I’m a bartender. I’m practically a psychologist!”
  • UnCam accuses Bren of being a cold fish. Mr. B disagrees — “What you are is Iceland — cool to the touch, but underneath you’re all volcano.”
  • UnVincent, when he and UnZack find the gun: “I’m English. We don’t use guns. We use our foreheads.” He also describes UnZack as “the type of moron who goes to jail for a murder he didn’t commit…”
  • UnVincent on his prospects after arrest: “I’m not going to fair well in jail. I’m lovely.”
  • Mr. B: “should I be upset that everyone thinks that we’re murderers, or just happy that everyone is trying to help us get away with it?”

Grey’s Anatomy Season 5 Finale Episode Recap: Are Izzie & George Really Dead?

What will happen on Grey’s Anatomy next season? Are George and Izzie goners? E! Online’s own Marc Malkin has an inside source who says that T.R. Knight is leaving Grey’s Anatomy due to issues with executive producer Shonda Rhimes. Sources tell TVGuide.com, “That story is utterly false. Nothing at all has changed in T.R.’s status.” Rhimes has also gone on record debunking new rumors that an entirely different actor would play George thanks to plastic surgery. However, we all know Shonda toed the lines of truth last season and likes to keep the audience guessing. Source: Kristin on E!Online

Latest Grey’s Rumors Ripped as “Ridiculous,” “False” and “B.S.”

Source: TV Guide Online

Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes is nipping in the bud talk that the role of George — who last was seen barely alive after being mauled, mangled and mashed in a bus accident — will be recast with a new actor. “A hilarious, ridiculous rumor” is how Rhimes, via Twitter, qualified the speculation. Getting someone new to play a surgically made-over George would conveniently pave the way for T.R. Knight to vacate the role and exit the ABC serial, as has been rumored for many, many months. The increasingly dusty buzz has been that Knight’s disenchantment with his Season 5 storylines begat his conspicuously decreased screen time… which, in turn, is said to have disenchanted Knight even further.

Now, E! Online is reporting that Knight just this week negotiated his departure from Grey’s — a neat trick, seeing as he’s still on contract through Season 6, if needed. “That story is utterly false,” one well-placed source tells TVGuide.com. “Nothing at all has changed in T.R.’s status.” A second industry insider deems the aforementioned blog posting as “total B.S.” Rhimes herself recently told EW.com, “There have been lots of rumors about T.R., but T.R.’s never said anything. Take from it what you will.”

ABC entertainment boss Stephen McPherson also has weighed in on the uncertain future of Knight’s character, as well as Katherine Heigl’s ailing Izzie. “They’ve both signed on [for next season],” he told reporters at ABC’s upfront. “I can’t say whether or not they’ll both be there.” Reps for ABC and Knight declined to comment for this story.

In the last few minutes of the Grey’s Anatomy finale, we see both George and Izzie coding in different rooms; their spirits meeting at the famous elevator, but will they both be pronounced dead when the show returns in the fall? That’s all up in the air now and to be determined…..

Grey’s Anatomy finale recap: Did Izzie and George die?

Source: Columbus Ledger-Enquirer

“Grey’s Anatomy” ended Thursday night with two characters’ lives in jeopardy. Viewers will have to wait until next season to see if Izzie Stevens and George O’Malley are alive.

Izzie, who suffered a brain tumor this season, underwent a risky surgery that threatened to take away her memory. Prior to the surgery, she told new husband Alex Karev she wanted to put a do not resuscitate order in place if anything went wrong. Izzie came out of the surgery and suffered short-term memory problems, which eventually disappeared. As she hugged Karev to celebrate gaining memory, she lost consciousness. Despite the DNR she requested, Karev urged doctors to try to resuscitate her and they did.

George, meanwhile, was inspired early in the two-hour episode to become an Army doctor. Later, friends planned to change his mind with an intervention. In the meantime, they operated on a dramatically wounded John Doe, who was bloody and near death after literally sweeping a woman off her feet to save her from an approaching bus. As Dr. Meredith Gray prepared to operate on the mysterious hero, he drew a “007” into her palm. With that, she realized with horror that John Doe, tragically, was George.

The two-hour show ended Thursday with the doctors at Seattle Grace Hospital scrambling to save both lives. Izzie entered a flashback in which she stepped inside an elevator. The elevator doors opened and she was greeted by George in his Army uniform.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season finale: Izzie survives surgery — or does she?

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

Tonight’s two-hour “Grey’s Anatomy” season finale was jam-packed with revelations — about love, healing, fighting cancer, DNR orders, Bailey’s marriage, and the fates of Izzie Stevens and George O’Malley.

Izzie’s surgery: The first hour focused on whether or not Izzie would let Derek remove her brain tumor. It’s an incredibly hard decision, since the tumor’s in a place where her entire personality and functioning lives. A test to gauge how she’d fare with surgery in that part of her brain shows huge problems. Dr. Swinder (Kimberly Elise) argues against surgery; Derek, unsurprisingly, favors it. Swinder’s had good results with drug therapy on another patient, Allison (Liza Weil), that made the tumor disappear. Initially, after careful consideration and a heartfelt and totally over the line talking-to from Meredith, Izzie decides against the surgery. Which forces Alex to abandon his “whatever you want” stance and lay down the law, telling her that not having surgery is not an option; it’s his life too, and he wants her to have it.

But then Allison codes and goes south in surgery, leaving her on life support — a heartbreaking turn of events that leaves even hard-core Swinder reeling. Izzie, who’s having hallucinations about discussing her situation on a beach with Denny, finally finds solace with George, whoassures her she already knows what to do. She finally  agrees to the surgery, but makes it clear she does not want to end up on a ventilator. She’ll do the surgery, but she’s signing a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) order. Which makes Alex crazy — until she explains that now she understands why Denny signed a DNR. If it comes down to it, she says, let me go.

Hour two opens with Izzie finally waking up from surgery, and thankfully being able to communicate, see, hear, and speak. She’s Izzie. But for the time being, at least, she has no short-term memory — her mind resets every five minutes. Mortified and determined to rescue her future, Alex works with her over and over to exercise her memory, first barking questions and then posting notes all over her room — which was charming in “50 First Dates” but staggeringly sad and anxious here. She knows something’s up and urges him to get it off his chest — and boy does he unload. You made me promise you wouldn’t live like this, he says. So now what do I do? Smother you with a pillow? Give you an overdose of morphine? Leave you?

Naturally, Izzie’s upset — it’s never good to hear from your husband that being married to you is awful. Later she relays the story to Cristina — and she can actually remember it on her own. Alex rushes back, thrilled that she’s improving, and she goes limp in his arms. Alex insists that they save her despite the DNR — and ultimately the Chief agrees, saying screw the DNR. How that one would make it past hospital counsel, I’ll never know. Izzie flatlines, and while we can hear them working on her, we see her go into the elevator with her prom dress on. The doors close. They open again, and the voices get louder — did they bring her back?

George’s decision: George works a case with Hunt and Callie — Charlie, a young Army Lieutenant who served in Iraq (Zach Gilford), wants them to amputate his lower leg, which seems healthy but is causing him incredible pain that doesn’t respond to any kind of treatment. His commanding officer sent him to Hunt at Seattle Grace, knowing that Hunt would understand Charlie’s feelings about not fitting into civilian life and the need to go back to war. But to do that, Charlie needs to rid himself of this pain and get a prosthetic leg. Callie’s horrified at the thought of cutting off a healthy limb, but Hunt sympathizes — and eventually George does too.

But it’s more than that. George really seems to have found his calling in trauma surgery, and in a switcheroo that’s designed to make us think it’s Hunt going back to Iraq (Hunt tells Cristina he needs to go back because his work there isn’t finished), George enlists to be a trauma surgeon in the Army. His relatively short trauma experience, combined with the fact that he’s just a second-year resident, seems suspect to me, but OK. Everyone spends a large part of the second hour panicked and plotting an intervention to talk George out of enlisting. Except for Arizona, who thinks he’s brave and awesome for signing up — which totally appalls Callie. Turns out that Arizona’s brother died in Iraq, so she supports anyone willing to go there and help.

George is supposed to be spending his last day at SGH in surgery, and they really could’ve used his help with a horrible trauma that comes in — a John Doe pushed a woman out of the way of an oncoming bus, was hit and dragged for half a mile. He’s just broken into pieces with massive injuries, and the woman who he saved becomes convinced he’s her prince charming. Barely hanging on before his second surgery, John Doe signs a message on Meredith’s hand: 007. John Doe is George O’Malley. And when Izzie’s elevator doors open, he’s standing there in his uniform — on the other side. RIP, Dr. O’Malley. And great work, T.R. Knight.

Derek and Meredith: There’s work friction, of course — particularly over Meredith’s role in Izzie’s surgery decision. But after they watch Izzie and Alex on the way to Izzie’s surgery, they decide to get married at city hall, because Meredith says she doesn’t want to spend another day not married to Derek. As a newlywed myself, I definitely understand the impulse — both to take that plunge and avoid the wedding.

Just as they’re leaving for city hall, Meredith gets a page. Derek concedes that today might not be the best day to do this, but Meredith points out that every day is like this. There’s never going to be time to get married and have their lives unless they make time. And so, on a Post-It note from Cristina’s “something old, something new” offering, they have a very sweet conversation about what they want to promise each other… wait, is that a slowed-down cover of FLASHDANCE playing in the background? Good grief. My brain just cleaved in two, and I can’t decide: is that horrifying or awesome?

Not every set of vows contains the word “smelly,” and this allows them to declare themselves married. The pressure is off — the moment has been seized, love has been expressed, and amazingly, they’re the healthiest people in the place.

Bailey’s career: The Chief and Arizona are going head-to-head in a battle over Bailey (Arizona’s speech to the chief about fighting him and winning made me fall in love with her a little bit. And I cry when I get angry at authority figures too.), and the Chief plays dirty by wooing her with a whiz-bang surgery robot that is admittedly cool and finds Bailey making lightsaber noises. Her heart seems to be increasingly in peds, though — Arizona’s speech about seeing the joy must’ve broken through — and she gets the prestigious pediatric surgery fellowship.

But Bailey’s husband tells her that if she takes the fellowship, he’ll divorce her. When she asks the Chief if there’s still space in general surgery for her, he assumes she’s chosen her marriage over work. But nope — she’s leaving Tucker, because marriages shouldn’t come down to ultimatims. Right on, Bailey — be true to yourself. But she’s not sure she can handle the dissolution of her marriage and a new specialty all at once. Brilliant performance by Chandra Wilson, as always.

Cristina and Owen: Owen’s making progress in therapy, but he gets the notion into his head that he needs to go back to Iraq to finish his work. Cristina’s having none of it — patients still die, she says, and pushes him to deal with his life here. Namely, that he should tell his mother he’s home. With Cristina in tow, he goes to see his mom, and finally he can sleep — and without nightmares. He asks Cristina to make a go of it with him, and after watching Meredith, she finally believes that people can change, and that therapy can help. In a couple of very touching scenes in the boiler room and hallway, she takes a massive leap of faith and tells him she loves him. That is awesome.

Sloan and Little Grey: The gist: Mark asks Lexie to move in with him, a notion she completely blows off. Maybe in 10 years, she says. So in an effort to move on, he starts shopping for houses. It’s much-needed comic relief, and much less annoying than it sounds. And yes, he is a better woman than Lexie.

Exclusive: ‘Grey’s’ boss on finale’s Izzie-George shocker, Mer-Der ‘wedding,’ and more!

Source: The Ausiello Files

Greysanatomy_lMaybe you just watched the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy. And maybe you’re freaking out. Oh, who am I kidding, you are freaking out. Well, good news: Mike Ausiello got off the phone with series creator Shonda Rhimes and obtained exclusive intel on last night’s jaw-dropping climax. Will Izzie and John Doe George survive? Was that really Meredith and Derek’s wedding we witnessed? Is Jessica Capshaw here to stay? Yep. Rhimes answered all those questions and even found time to address the “ghost sex” controversy, Katherine Heigl’s Emmy chances, TR Knight’s alleged unhappiness, and more.

Rumors have been swirling all year that Katherine and TR wanted off the show. The season ends with both their characters’ lives hanging in the balance. Purely coincidental?
I don’t think there are any coincidences. I think Katherine’s stated publicly that she’s happy to stay. I think that there have been lots of rumors about TR, but TR’s never said anything. Take from it what you will.

This kind of cliffhanger almost seems tailor-made to capitalize on some of those headlines and generate buzz.
You have to remember, I have two shows. It’s not as if I spend a lot of time reading the press. We talk about stuff in the writers’ room that other people have read, but, mostly, we were really moving on character. Every year at the beginning of the season I pitch what the end of the season is going to be. And I literally sat down and pitched the last 10 minutes of this season at the beginning of the season, so we were headed towards the place that we knew we were going to go.

Do you know which one of them lives and which one of them dies?
Yes. And I don’t know that you should be saying “which one of them lives and which one of them dies.” I know what happens to the characters.

Have you shared this information with Katherine and TR?
[Silence] I don’t want to answer that. I don’t want to talk about my private conversations with the actors.

Katherine said in a recent interview that she was as much in the dark about Izzie’s fate as anyone. Do you keep this stuff close to the vest in order to prevent leaks?
There was a joke for a while there that if I got hit by a bus [no one would] know how to end the season. I do feel like a secret’s not a secret if anybody knows about it. It was really about trying to keep the storyline as secret as possible, because I wanted the last moment of the season to be a real surprise.

Did TR ask to be released from his contract?
I absolutely am not going to talk about any private conversations I had with the actors. I feel like that invades their privacy.

Why haven’t we seen very much of George this season? I understand that there are ebbs and flows on ensemble dramas but…
There are ebbs and flows. Every character this season has had a lot of ebbs and flows. And every season is shaped differently. With George, I really wanted you to not notice that he wasn’t there for most of this episode. I don’t think anybody noticed because of the way we laid it out this season. He’s an incredibly talented actor. And, actually, he was really lovely and elegant about lying there in all that very painful makeup and prosthetics for much of the episode with no words. That moment where he grabs Meredith’s hand is one of the most affecting moments of the episode, and it was without words.

There was criticism that the Denny hallucinations went on too long without an explanation. Looking back, do you regret not revealing Izzie’s diagnosis sooner?
Do I regret it? No. As writers, we had a lot of fun figuring out how we were going to tell that story. I don’t regret anything we’ve done. Every season is a learning process for me. This is my first television show. Granted, I’ve done five seasons now, but it’s still my first television show. As we head into season 6 everything is still a learning experience for me. It’s been a great, crazy experiment that has happened fairly publicly, but, for me, it’s been my learning process.

There was a period there where the show was being relentless mocked, especially where the “ghost sex” was concerned. Did you ever take it personally?
You’re the first person to tell me that, because I, of course, don’t read a lot of press. One thing we’ve gotten used to is being in the public eye and we learned to let everything roll off our backs. We knew where we were going; we had a road map. The rest of the audience didn’t know where we were going. We all thought it was really surprising that anybody thought there was a ghost on our show. We’re a medical show. We thought it was surprising that anybody would look at it and go, “Gee, that’s a ghost.” So that was surprising to us. But, other than that, we took it with a grain of salt.

Did the network stick by you during the initial backlash?
Yes. [ABC president] Steve [McPherson] and I sat down and talked about what we were going to do before we did it, and figured out how many episodes and everything. I’m in constant contact [with him].

Will Katherine be putting her name back in the Emmy race this season?
You know, I don’t know. I think she did beautiful work. I think she always does beautiful work.

Did Meredith and Derek really get married last night?
Their wedding was a Post-it note. We had a big series of discussions about it in the writers’ room. I felt very strongly — very very strongly — that the last thing Meredith Grey would do is put on a wedding dress and walk down an aisle. It just felt wrong to me, Meredith being Meredith. And the Post-it wedding will have big reverberations next season.

Will we still get an official wedding at some point?
I think they feel it is an official wedding.

Meredith and Derek fans felt a little cheated by the 100th episode because they were led to believe one thing and they got another.
Yeah, I saw a lot of people felt like, “Oh my god, they promised it was going to be a Meredith and Derek wedding.” I never said it was Meredith and Derek’s wedding, I said it was their wedding day.

Have you figured out how you’re going to work around Ellen Pompeo’s maternity leave next season?
We’re actually still talking about that. The writers have disbanded for the season and we’re going to come back together at the beginning of June, so we’re still talking about what we’re going to do and what that’s going to mean. Her maternity leave doesn’t actually come into play until later this season. We will have shot a number of episodes by that point. [And] Ellen is extraordinarily optimistic about what she’s going to be able to do. She’s such a trouper and I’m really am grateful to her for it. We’ll take it as it comes.

Will Jessica Capshaw be promoted to a series regular next season?
I can’t say because we have not renewed anybody’s contract for next season yet.

Are you happy with Jessica Capshaw?
I love Jessica Capshaw. And when I say love I mean love. She couldn’t be a more wonderful person, and I feel like the chemistry Arizona and Callie have feels like the Meredith and Derek chemistry to me. I find them delightful to watch.

Last question: Looking back at this season, what are you most proud of, and what’s the one thing you would have done differently?
There are a lot of things I’m proud of this season. I feel like the cast was clicking on all cylinders. I love the addition of Kevin McKidd and Jessica Capshaw. Those were additions that really worked for us. For me, I feel like this was the season where I found my joy in the show again. You do all these episodes of television and there are ebbs and flows and, for me, I feel like I really came back to the show in a way that had a lot more energy.

And what would you have done differently?
That would mean I have to admit that we made some mistakes, and I’m not going to do that. [Laughs]

Come on, you’re human.
We tried some stuff that didn’t work this season. I wish that we had been able to find Callie a love interest that sparkled sooner, but we found it in the end, so I feel good about that.

Supernatural Season 4 Finale Recap “Lucifer Rising”

Jared Padalecki and Genevieve Cortese, SupernaturalTHEN: Lilith wanted to break the 66 Seals to bring Lucifer to Earth.  Dean was recruited by the angels to stop it while Sam went his own route, drinking demon blood until he became strong enough to defeat her.  This difference in strategy caused the brothers to have an epic fight and vow never to speak to each other again.

NOW (actually, still THEN, since the opening scene takes place in 1972): At a Maryland convent in 1972, a priest is terrified when a demon rushes in and takes over his body.  The next day the priest fives a sermon to the nuns that his dad is locked away and that, ironically, he recently learned that the door to his cage is at that very convent.  The demon priest yells at the nuns and then his eyes goes Yellow before he has some fun.  That’s right…Azazel is Lucifer’s son!

Ruby and Sam stop on the side of the road.  Ruby thinks Dean was wrong to say what he said, but Sam actually agrees with him.  There’s something evil inside of him and Sam realizes what he has to do and he knows Dean is better off without him.

The camera cuts to Dean in a mirror image of Sam’s face when they first showed him.  Dean is feeling sorry for himself.  He claims Sam never wanted this and that he’s glad Sam’s gone.  Uncle Bobby gets fed up with their childish crap and turns on the tough love.  He yells at Dean telling him that family isn’t supposed to make you feel good and he should stop being such a whiny brat.  You tell him, Bobby!

Bobby also tells Dean that John was a coward and that Dean is more of a man than John ever was.  I understand the purpose of a pep speech, but I think if you spoke to Alastair and found out about the breaking of the first Seal, you might think differently on that matter.

Then Dean is magically transported to what I can only assume is Heaven’s waiting room.  It’s nicely decorated and there’s beer and burgers.  Perhaps this is Heaven for Dean.  Zachariah and Castiel show up, and Dean calls it The Suite Life of Zach and Cas.  The angels don’t get the reference, and even Dean seems a little ashamed that he just made a reference to a Disney Channel series.

‘Supernatural’ Finale: Welcome to the apocalypse

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

It’s been a season of ups and downs on Supernatural, so it only makes sense that the finale gave us the beginning of the end.

It’s a beginning that began in a convent in 1972, when Azazel figured out how to get a call to Lucifer’s cage and got the message that Lilith was the only one who could break him out. He was told to find the unholy one a very special baby. Flash to Sam getting a pep talk from Ruby about how he and Dean can patch things up after he saves the world. Meanwhile, Bobby is trying to convince Dean to reach out to his brother. Unfortunately, one thing the Winchester boys have in common is how stubborn they each are.

Also stubborn, are the heavenly host, who zap Dean to a room with no view before Bobby can convince him to find Sam. Zachariah and Castiel tell him there is only one seal left  and they want to keep him safe until the proper time comes for him to do….whatever it is he is supposed to do. It’s a topic they are still vague on, much to Dean’s annoyance. While Dean is cooling his heals, he calls Sam to apologize for their fight but gets voicemail. That’s because Sam and Ruby are busy torturing Lilith’s chef to get the location of the final seal. They decide to keep her around as an energy drink for Sam, so she pulls a switch by allowing the host to have control while she naps within. As Sam closes the natal nurse into his trunk, we get a view of how far down a dark road he’s traveled.

Also on a dark road are the angels, as Zachariah reveals to Dean that they aren’t interested in stopping Lilith at all. In fact, Lilith is the last seal, and Sam defeating her will bring Lucifer out of retirement, they’ll have a mighty war, Heaven will win and peace will reign on earth. He’s less concerned about the collateral damage of “truckloads” of humans. They just need to keep Dean away from Sam in the meantime. Which means Dean needs to try to appeal to Castiel’s greater nature to do what truly right.

Sam is struggling with ultimate right and wrong as well, which plays out in the decision to drink the nurse or not. He decides to listen to Dean’s voicemail, only what we hear is not what Dean said. Gone is the apology, replaced with a vicious threat denouncing sam as a monster beyond redemption. Sam decides to drink the nurse and save the world. Castiel has come to a decision too, breaking Dean free and taking him to the prophet to find out where the final seal is. Castiel promises to hold off the archangels and sends Dean to the convent.

Dean reaches the convent just in time to see Sam pinning Lilith in place with his mojo and for Ruby to flash him a smile as she closes the doors. He bangs on the doors, yelling for his brother and for a moment it almost seems like he will get through. Until Lilith taunts him about turning himself into a monster and not having the will to bite. His eyes go pitch black and with a few explosions of light, the first demon is no more. As her blood begins to run in a circle, Ruby reveals to him that he just broke the last seal.  She tells him that he will be richly rewarded as Dean finally breaks into the room. She tells him he’s too late, but he hardly seems to care as he guts her with the demon knife. Meanwhile, Lilith’s blood has formed a vortex, which becomes a pillar of light. “He’s coming” are the last words we hear.

In the last few weeks, many of us predicted the finale would come down to a conflict between the brothers. Were you surprised not to see that happen, but to have the real conflict be in how heaven and hell used them as pawns? Were you glad to see Ruby get killed? Will Sam be able to handle the guilt of having brought about the apocalypse? Will Dean be able to beat Lucifer? Is Castiel now banished from heaven for going against upper management? And where in the world is God in all this?

Lost Season 5 Finale Recap “The Incident”

Josh Holloway, LostHere we go, the season 5 finale of Lost.  Sawyer, Juliet and Kate are in the sub, Sayid, Jack, Ellie and Richard are with the hydrogen bomb, Miles, Hurley and Jin are in DHARMA-Ville and John Locke is going over the river and through the woods to Jacob’s cabin…to kill Jacob.

Before the episode started I had two theories: either this entire series is Jack’s dream while he’s on a space shuttle to become the first man to walk on Mars or Mr. Spock is controlling everything from his office in an alternate universe World Trade Center.  Congratulations to anyone who gets both references.

Oh ye Gods!  So some dude weaves on a loom and goes outside to the beach on the Island to catch and heat up some fish.  He sees a ship coming and another man walks up.  They talk about the end and progress and how the ship found the Island.

The second man wants to kill the first one, but for some reason he can’t.  The first man is Jacob!  And as the other guy leaves, we see the giant four-toed statue of Anubis standing tall right next to him.  This episode will be insane.

And the confusing flashbacks continue as a little Kate and her friend steal from a convenience store.  They get caught and the shopkeeper threatens to call the cops, but a mystery man says he’ll pay for what she stole.  The man is…Jacob!  Yeah, this is going to be one of those kinds of episodes.  Jacob makes Young Kate promise never to steal again.

Back to the sub, an older Kate wants to go back to the Island to stop Jack from detonating a hydrogen bomb.  Sawyer doesn’t really give a crap.  I love new Sawyer.

Sayid reads through Faraday’s journal and learns they only need to take the Plutonium core of the bomb to detonate.  Richard is worried about Ellie because she’s pregnant, but she isn’t scared because she knows her son will be safe.  Until he returns to the Island and he kills her, of course.

Dr. Chang is still scared about drilling into the pocket of energy, but Radzinsky is adamant.  Was I asleep this whole time, or did Radzinsky suddenly get a whole lot more power than he used to have?

30 Years Later: Sun wants to know who Jacob is, and Ben tells her that he’s in charge of the Island.  Richard is still confused about how John Locke came back to life, but Locke suspects it’s the same way Richard never ages – Jacob did it.

Ilana and Bram row up to the main Island with Lapidus,  Ilana thinks their pilot might be a candidate for their group, whatever that is.  Lapidus wants to know what’s in the box, and when they open it, all he can say is: “Terrific” in a classically ironic tone.

90210 Episode Recap 1.23: ‘Zero Tolerance’

‘90210’: Ethan wants to find himself… in Silver’s pants. Hey-o!

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

Previously on “90210,” I Moan was scammed by her sister, Adrianna and Navid rethought their married with children nonsense, Silver asked Dixon to prom and Liam kept kind-of hitting on Annie. Tonight is Sophomore Prom, woo hoo!

The Wilsons
Principal Harry (with Annie’s help) gives a PSA entitled “Zero Tolerance” about after-prom parties and the subsequent suspension if you get caught at one. Principal Harry and Kelly also have to threaten Liam with military school (via Liam’s stepfather) if he doesn’t put forth some effort and get involved.

Harry also asks Annie to be his snitch about the prom after-parties. Man, you can’t do that to your kid! Low, Harry, low. At the actual prom, Harry overhears about a party stocked with booze and makes an announcement about how he’ll be at the party with the police. *Cringe* Everybody thinks Annie snitched.

Silver & Dixon
Silver picks out a strapless pink princess prom dress and she looks beautiful, even if it isn’t very “Silver.” At the actual prom, she freaks out and won’t leave the limo, but Ade talks her down, saying they’ll hardly notice Silver next to an 8-months pregnant girl. Snerk.

The Prom King and Queen are announced as Dixon and Silver (as a write-in) and I hold my breath that a bucket of pig’s blood is going to come cascading from the ceiling. I wouldn’t exactly cry if Silver used her mind to lock the doors and burn the place to the ground, though.

No pig’s blood, surprisingly, and Silver’s acceptance speech (about how much she hates proms) is awesome. Dixon looks stunned and Ethan looks lovestruck. When Silver removes her crown, I Moan takes it and puts it on her own head, which is also awesome.

Silver tells DIxon she’s ready to come back to West Bev but he is totally pissed at her because he’s a “zombie, prom-loving loser.” Ethan compliments her right on the heels of Dixon’s exit and she looks thoughtful.

I Moan, Sneaky Sister and Liam
When I Moan goes prom dress shopping, her card is declined. The ensuing confrontation with Sneaky Sister has Jen coming clean about her financial woes (she’s still not completely honest, though). I Moan takes it really well and is more hurt by the lying than the money fraud.

After prom, I Moan takes Liam on the Paramount backlot. They run into Kelly, who spills the beans about his stepfather, and I Moan puts it together that he only asked her to get involved in stuff. I Moan berates him about how much she likes him, then realizes he looked on her Facebook page to find out she likes black orchids for her corsage. Awww.

Sneaky Sister and Skeazy Teacher
Ryan the Chaperone (should he really be around dressed-much-older high schoolers?) takes Jen Clark to prom. They talk to Kelly and it is revealed that Jen had her as a guidance counselor. Ouch. In the bathroom, Jen reveals that she slept with a guy from the registrar’s office at Yale and got to read her letters of recommendation. Kelly’s letter wasn’t terribly nice because Jen was a conniving, term paper-thieving narcissist. I hope Kelly beats her ass to a couture pulp.

Kelly tries to tell Ryan what Jen is actually like and he accuses her of being jealous. Maybe those two narcissists deserve each other. Meanwhile, Jen talks to her husband Olivier on her cell phone outside.

Annie & Ethan
Totally boring this week. Annie goes to prom with a theatre geek to prove to Liam she’s a nice girl, but ends up hurting theatre geek in the process. Ethan turns down lacrosse camp this summer in order to visit his dad in Montana and find himself. He clearly wants to have 1000 of Silver’s babies after her big prom speech.

Adrianna & Navid
Navid picks a fight with Ty, which sends Ade into labor. I’m guessing they get better stuff next week.

There are photographers and a red carpet at the SOPHOMORE PROM.

Leightonmeester Still dying to know what exactly went down with Blair and Jack Bass on New Year’s? Well you — and Chuck — will find out Monday, thanks to Gossip Girl, whomever she (or he) may be. The online tattletale plays a big part in next week’s “GG” season finale when she kicks off graduation festivities by calling the elite of Constance and St. Jude out. I won’t spoil all of her accusations… just one: Whore! She calls Nate Archibald a whore. Which he kind of is. What else can I tell you… Well, there will be a marriage proposal (any guesses?), the friendly reunion of a former couple (no, I’m not referring to Chuck and Blair), the return of a character we haven’t seen in a little while (oh, the possibilities!) and… a weird preoccupation with headbands. The character that’s coming back? Okay, fine, it’s Carter Baizen… and he’s bringing some big news with him. News about someone we met this past Monday. News that will no doubt affect next year’s storylines. As for Chuck and Blair, the episode belongs to them and that’s all I’m going to say on that subject. Something I will, however, happily elaborate on is the hotness of Dan and Serena’s half brother who, as previously reported, shows up in the finale.

VIDEO: Who will be Constance Billard’s new Queen B Gossip Girl?

…no one, if Jenny Humphrey has anything to do with it.

Jessica Szohr Spills on the Future of Gossip Girl

Source: Kristin on E!Online

We just caught up with Jessica Szohr in New York and got the rundown of Vanessa’s romantic future. Here’s what she spilled:

What’s Up With Vanessa and Nate? Jessica tells us that V will get over Nate’s dalliance with Blair sooner rather than later. According to Szohr, “Obviously, Vanessa’s a little bit hurt because that’s her boyfriend, but what comes around goes around, so I’m sure Vanessa will be all right.”

What About Vanessa and Dan? Could Danessa ever hook up? Jessica tells us, “I don’t know if I could see Vanessa and Dan together because now that she’s come back and accepted his loving Serena, and he’s always there for her through so many things with Nate, I think they’re just good friends. I don’t know if they’ll ever date. But it’s Gossip Girl, so…”

Will There Be More Between Vanessa and the Basshole? Jessica tells us, “Vanessa hates Chuck…that’s what’s fun about it. We’ll see.” Sounds like there could be more spiciness in store for those two, somewhere down the line…

What About Vanessa and Lesbianism? Could V ever take up with one of the ladies if she exhausts the local supply of eligible bachelors? (Her sister Ruby is in a lesbian pub band…) “For the ladies? I don’t know, maybe she will.”

Now, who’s stoked for Monday’s Gossip Girl finale?

Question: Could you please give us some juicy scoop on the Gossip Girl finale? It would really make my day. Ausiello: One of the cliffhangers involves Georgina … and Dan, and another Blair and Chuck.

You made a potentially sarcastic remark about Gossip Girl‘s Serena and Nate happening. I need to know if there is anything to that remark, because I am more hopeful than I should be about Serenate finding their way back together. Please help! MICKEY: I will downgrade my previous sarcastic remark to say that the possibility of Serenate is alive and well through the end of the season. But Serena’s season-finale suitor is someone entirely different — and surprising. If it’s a happy ending you’re looking for, forget it.

90210 Season Finale Spoilers 1.24: “One Party Can Ruin Your Whole Summer” Prom After Party & Death!

Episode 1.24: The Last Shot of Light (Season finale) Airdate:May 19, 2009

‘90210’ finale: Is Brenda adopting Adrianna’s baby? Is Jim Walsh kicking the bucket?

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Judging by your interview with the girl who plays Naomi’s sister, plus the finale promos, I’m guessing Jen sleeps with Liam this week. Am I right? The promos made that pretty obvious, no? Yeah, Naomi’s sister was starting to seem a bit tame, but during tonight’s season ender, her evil nature will become apparent… And it’s all because little sis tried to put her in her place, just as Sara Foster said she would.

Brenda’s back! Brenda’s back! The best (and only) reason to watch “90210”! So, tell me, she’s adopting Adrianna’s baby, right?

Is it true that Jim Walsh returns for the “90210” season finale? I’m hearing this rumor everywhere. Is he the person dying or what? James Eckhouse is not appearing in the season finale and Jim Walsh is not dying. But when you watch tonight’s hour, you’ll understand why this scuttlebutt was started.

Sex, drugs & death. That’s what I heard will happen on the “90210” finale. So give us a clue! Well, the sex we’ve already covered (see above). The death? I think it’s sort of an end-of-season cliffhanger-type thing. And the drugs? The last two characters you’d expect to see stoned are getting super high tonight.

I’m going to miss Ethan next year. How is he written out of the show? Um, he’s not. Not really. I mean, he does have a big moment during the season finale… one involving Silver of course… But there’s no official “see ya” for him. Not yet anyway.

Why is “90210” getting rid of Ethan? Dustin Milligan is great. If they have to dump someone, why not Shenae Grimes?!! Oh, that’s not nice, now is it? No, but if you ain’t an Annie fan, you’re going to really like her last couple scenes this evening…

Question: What does the future hold for Annie and Liam on 90210?  Ausiello: Based on the finale, a straitjacket and an STD, respectively. Source: The Ausiello Files

Let’s talk 90210who’s gonna die? MICKEY: Before I tell you who dies, let me ask you this, Matty: Ever see the movie Carrie? Because it’s prom time at West Bev, and Annie is doing her best Sissy Spacek impression for us. It’s harrowing; you might even say she is driven to do some very uncharacteristic things, like maybe even kill someone! Who? It’s hard to say exactly, but in the same episode, Adrianna makes a choice, Ethan makes a declaration, and Liam makes a mistake — all three of which are life-changing. Source: TV Guide Online

Is anything going to happen between Liam and Annie on 90210?

Liam makes fun of Annie in the 90210 finale, but there’s nothing genuinely flirtatious going on. However, Liam definitely does have sex with someone who’s not Naomi! Ethan and Silver, by the way, totally connect in this last episode. Could that be the beginning of a short-lived somethin’-somethin’? Source: Kristin on E!Online

See larger image The first season of “” will conclude on May 19 with a misunderstanding. Liam, being the bad boy that he is, said that he is not the boyfriend of Naomi, and thus Annie takes the fall. Naomi and Liam have revealed their honest feelings for each other and she decides to host an after-prom party at her new house, much to Jen’s disapproval. Showing up late, Naomi searches for Liam but is speechless when she finds him finishing up some business in her bedroom. A furious Naomi confronts and accuses Annie of sleeping with Liam, causing Annie to finally snap at Naomi and all the party-goers before leaving the party in a rage and doing something that will haunt her for the rest of her life. Meanwhile, Adrianna and Navid spend their prom night in the delivery room and Brenda shows up to offer support. Dixon and Ethan get into a fight when Dixon accuses Ethan of having feelings for Silver. Harry and Debbie chaperone the after-prom party but leave early to lend their support to Adrianna at the hospital, along with Kelly.

We won’t know who dies until next year. We’ll see what appears to be a dead body in the 90210 finale, but the person’s face will remain hidden. (Watch With Kristin)

Sex, drugs, alcohol and murder. “Oddly enough all of those things happen in the finale,” teased 90210 star Rob Estes at last night’s Paley Festival event. Wait, murder?” There may be a death at the very end of the season.” That’s right kids, someone in America’s most famous zip code may be saying goodbye for good. Also, not one, but two students are leaving West Beverly High, and we have the deets on a freak-out that will shock you, especially since it comes from someone other than resident bi-polar gal-pal Silver (Jessica Stroup). Executive producer Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair  tells us, “There are some rash actions at the end of the season where one of the characters makes some decisions that may have very serious consequences, life and death consequences if you will.” Though everyone assumes Ethan will bite the dust, since Dustin Milligan is leaving 90210 this season, Rebecca confirms that the cliffhanger death has nothing to do with Ethan. So where does the big death take place? “A lot of stuff happens during prom. There’s love that’s finally fulfilled and yet because of various circumstances, potentially destroyed forever. There’s love, there’s death, there’s heartache, heartbreak,” says Rebecca. […] Rob spills, “In the final episode of the season, Annie (Shenae Grimes) blows her top. It’s the cliffhanger from hell. It’s a great surprise. Liam just keeps pressing her, saying ‘When are you going to lose it? You’re not really as good as you pretend to be,’ and she’s not.” Matt Lanter innocently says, “Liam is doing some teasing, but he teases everyone.” Oh it’s much more than that. Adds Ryan Eggold, “Annie definitely goes crazy. Not in the way Silver does, more like ‘What the heck am I doing in my life kind of thing.’ She has a very interesting last moment in the finale.” Could Annie be on a death-ward spiral? You’ll have to tune in to the finale. Source: Kristin on E!Online

Shenae Grimes tells us that the finale will be the culmination of all the reunions that have happened so far this year, saying, “We have Shannen back, Jennie’s here, so it’s a really good time.” Apparently there’s lots of drama in the episode, “especially with Little Miss Annie, so stay tuned. It’s going to be shocking, that’s for sure. I was shocked; my jaw dropped, so I hope yours will too.” And according to AnnaLynne McCord , “We’re shooting the finale right now, so Shannen’s in this Cleopatra wig, and I come in and she’s like, ‘Baby!’ and I’m like, ‘Shannen?’ I didn’t even recognize her; she had the wig and the eyes.” And Shannen says, “There’s something about me and a child, there’s something about me and Cleopatra, and it’s just one episode; it’s the season finale and that’s it.” Source: Kristin on E!Online

‘One Tree Hill’: Happy endings all around in the season ender

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

There’s been a lot of “One Tree Hill” talk this week, what with the departures of Hilarie Burton (Peyton) and Chad Michael Murray (Lucas) confirmed, however the season finale is still ahead of us and we haven’t touched too much on that. The ironic thing about Monday’s hour? While we’re accustomed to dramatic Tree Hill cliffhangers with loves and lives left in danger, this year, all your favorite Tree Hill characters live happily ever after. Perhaps with all the real life “OTH” drama going down, creator Mark Schwahn just felt like writing a few feel-good stories.  And, if you are a true fan of the show, I think you will feel good when you watch next week. With the exception of Dan Scott — who goes to visit Whitey during the episode — everyone’s future is looking bright right about now. Everyone’s… Lucas and Peyton’s, Brooke and Julian’s, Mouth and Millicent’s, Mia and Chase’s, Haley and Nathan’s. Yeah, Nathan turns a real corner on Monday, which had me tearing up and I think you will too because it’s a long time coming. Oh, even Victoria gets a happy ending. And we get a happy ending too, because Austin Nichol (Julian) will return to Tree Hill full time in the fall…

In an interview with EW, the Peyton of ‘One Tree Hill’ said that every decision was made based on goodness and that she and Chad Michael Murray face it as grown-ups.

Hilarie Burton Reveals Truth Behind 'One Tree Hill' Departure See larger image The dismissal of Peyton and Lucas from “” after 6 years of running had set up a roar among fans of the show. But here to provide the truth as well as some insights regarding the reason behind their characters’ exit is Peyton’s depicter herself, .
In an exclusive interview with EW, Hilarie wanted to deliver the message that she would never say bad words about “One Tree Hill” and that the decision was based on “adults being good to each other and being kind”. She elaborated, “I think everyone was kind of agreeable about the situation. There were a lot of really wonderful conversations. It wasn’t a rash decision; a lot of thought, emotion, and kindness was put into it.” When asked about the truth, Hilarie responded “There really wasn’t a lot of turmoil. It was a fabulous six-year run, which is how long my contract was for, and I feel really lucky to have been a part of the show. So when I hear that there’s turmoil or negotiations based on money it kind of hurts my feelings, because it’s not what’s been going on at all.”

In February this year, Hilarie had posted a video message where she was chocking up in tears in and said that she wished she has creative control over what was going on. Explaining her purpose in posting the video, she said that it was “to dispel the rumors that were being circulated. …People even back then were blaming it on money, and [on me] being high maintenance… Those rumors were really hurtful.” Warning! The excerpts below may contain spoilers to the May 18 season finale where Peyton and Lucas take a final bow. Speaking of her last day on the set she said, “We wrapped together. We were the last two in the last scene, and we opened up a tab across the street for our crew to say thank you and cried a bunch.” Additionally, Hilarie mentioned that she is open to re-appearance because the writers “didn’t kill” Peyton or Lucas. Hilarie is looking forward to new shows while working on a undisclosed webseries that will start shooting on Memorial Day.

Question: Bummed about Chad and Hilarie leaving One Tree Hill. At least tell me Lucas and Peyton get a proper sendoff in Monday’s finale.  Ausiello: According to EW’s Jennifer Armstrong, who screened the finale yesterday, Leyton “definitely comes to a natural resting place that feels right for them and ties up their story nicely; however, they do not get an actual sendoff of any kind.” Speaking of Chad and Hilarie’s exit, in the very near future I’ll be posting something every Tree Hill fan will want to read. Trust me. Source: The Ausiello Files

Question: Give me something about the One Tree Hill finale!
What else you got, Armstrong? “Brooke finally gets two things she’s long wanted, we find out the fate of Peyton and the baby, and Whitey (the retired HS basketball coach) and Karen (Lucas’ mom, played by Moira Kelly) appear.” Thanks for ID’ing those last two JA, ’cause I wouldn’t of had a clue who you were talking about. Still don’t, in fact. Source: The Ausiello Files

Question: Give us scoop on the new characters that will be joining One Tree Hill next season.  Ausiello: The three new faces include: Quinn, Haley’s free-spirited, strong-willed older sister; Alexis, a model-actress-crazy bitch in her 20s who Brooke hires to be the new face of her clothing line; and Clayton, a young and brash sports agent who takes on Nathan as a client.

EXCLUSIVE Hilarie Burton on ‘Tree Hill’ exit: ‘It wasn’t a rash decision’

Source: The Ausiello Files

Hilarieburton2_lDid you hear? After six years of angst, heartache, and more angst, Hilarie Burton will make her final appearance as Lucas-lovin’ music mogul Peyton Sawyer on Monday’s season finale of One Tree Hill. (Her leading man, Chad Michael Murray, will bid farewell in the same episode.) On the eve of her swan song, the onetime TRL hostess is setting the record straight about the reason behind her departure, the “hurtful” rumors that precipitated it, and a certain video that left many of her fans going, “Whatchoo talkin’ ’bout, Ms. Hilarie? (Warning: Potential spoilers about Monday’s finale below.)

There are a lot of rumors flying about why you’re leaving. What’s the truth?
There really wasn’t a lot of turmoil. It was a fabulous six-year run, which is how long my contract was for, and I feel really lucky to have been a part of the show. So when I hear that there’s turmoil or negotiations based on money it kind of hurts my feelings, because it’s not what’s been going on at all. I think my fan base in particular knows that money isn’t necessarily a big motivator for me, that’s why I work in the world of independent film.

How long have you known that you were leaving?
I’ve known for a little while. For me, it was definitely an emotional decision. And a professional decision as well. I got really, really lucky. One Tree Hill was my very first television audition; it was a fairytale. I feel really lucky to have that level of success right out of the gate.

Just so I’m clear, it was your decision to leave, not the other way around?
I think everyone was kind of agreeable about the situation. There were a lot of really wonderful conversations. It wasn’t a rash decision; a lot of thought, emotion, and kindness was put into it. I would hope that that‘s the story that gets out — that it was a bunch of adults being good to each other and being kind about the decision-making process.

Did The Powers That Be make a concerted effort to get you to re-sign?
The conversations that they had with me were very compassionate and very sweet. They told me that they valued me, and that meant a lot. And they also wanted me to be happy and challenged and excited. There was some confusion for a little bit as to what was going on, but I think everybody’s in a good place now.

Talk to me about the video message you made for your fans back in February. It seemed like you were maybe saying good-bye. What point were you trying to get across?
The purpose of that video was to dispel the rumors that were being circulated. I was on your end of it for a very long time when I worked at MTV, and I understand how the rumor mill works. Everybody wants a sensational story. People even back then were blaming it on money, and [on me] being high maintenance… Those rumors were really hurtful. Of anybody on the show, I was the one who was very excited about doing all the extracurricular stuff — the mall tours, the radio tours, going to the upfronts…  I loved my involvement with this show, and I really just wanted my fan base to know that I wasn’t turning my nose up at this wonderful opportunity I’ve had for the last six years. There’s an ugly trend where actors think they’ve surpassed the show that made them or the film that made them and badmouth it. I will never say a bad word about One Tree Hill. The entire shape of my world changed because of that show, so I’ll always be very affectionate toward it.

Have you spoken to Chad recently?
I was in L.A. last week and we talked. Chad and I are good friends. I won’t speak for him, but it was not a rash decision on either of our parts. He’s very compassionate toward the show and the fans. It’s not an easy decision, but we’ve got to be grown-ups sometimes. [CMM’s rep declined my interview request, saying, “Chad is no longer on the show and has no comment regarding the new season.”]

What was your last day on the set like?
We wrapped together. We were the last two in the last scene, and we opened up a tab across the street for our crew to say thank you and cried a bunch.

Lucas and Peyton don’t really get an official sendoff next week. Is that disappointing?
It’s like when you leave for college but you know your parents still have your bedroom set up. You never know if you’re going to have to come home… I got really lucky with my character; I got a full-circle story. It was, “Lucas and Peyton: Are they going to be together? Are they not going to be together?” And as we saw in this week’s episode, my character got everything she ever wanted.

Might you make the occasional guest appearance?
Never say never. They didn’t kill us. There’s nothing vengeful about it, and I think that’s because as much as we love them, they love us back.

What are you going to do now?
One Tree Hill was a great learning opportunity for me, and I’m excited to go and apply that elsewhere and see where I end up. I’m hoping the fans support whatever my next endeavor is. I’m actually curious what they want me to do… On the blog that I have for my production company, we’re producing a web series that we’re going to start shooting on Memorial Day. We’ve also got a television show that we’re turning into a graphic novel, and we’ve got a film we’re raising money for. I’m busy. And I’m keeping my business down in North Carolina. I’m still going to be in the neighborhood; it’ll just be in a different capacity.

Last question, and it’s a biggie: What happens to Peyton’s record company?
Who knows? Maybe she’ll take it with her. I get to be a fan of the show now, which is cool. I get to sit back and be a fan. I’m personally very excited to see where it goes. I understand they’re introducing some new characters… I have no doubt they will come up with something to reinvent the show yet again.

Will One Tree Hill‘s “Leyton” be back next season with mini Leyton? MATT: Alas, in the days since you sent in this question, the CW confirmed that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton will not be returning for Season 7. The silver lining is that the actors’ final outing is a solid one. TVGuide.com’s Robyn Ross, who screened the May 18 season finale, reports that the hour “wraps things up in a little bow with no shockers to leave us hanging. Old faces were back, and dreams were truly realized. Perhaps it could’ve served better as a series finale, because I’d love to think this is the way these stories would have ended.” Source: TV Guide Online

The CW is expected to formally announce their departures next Thursday at its upfront presentation.  Murray and Burton have been engaged in rather high-profile contract negotiations for the past several months. Ultimately, a deal couldn’t be worked out and both actors will make their final appearances in next Monday’s season finale. To fill the void next season, a Hill insider tells me that two new characters will be introduced. Additionally, Austin Nichols (Julian) is being promoted to a series regular.

One Tree Hill Episode Recap 6.23 ‘Forever and Almost Always’

‘One Tree Hill’: Love, marriage and Nick Lachey

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

My Tivo’s description of this week’s “One Tree Hill” promised “unexpected guests” at Lucas and Peyton’s wedding. This made me excited, picturing long-lost cast members like Karen, Deb, Whitey and even Dan. Who do we get instead? Julian, and…Nick Lachey. Yippee.

It’s wedding day for Peyton and Lucas, and it looks like they’re getting married without either of their parents in attendance. Just like their childhoods! (Aw, just kidding Karen. You were an actual parent. Larry and Dan, on the other hand…) Also MIA is their officiant, so Haley steps in, gets ordained online and does the ceremony herself. After a few glitches at the beginning things go beautifully (to match the beautiful lakeside setting) and Luke and Peyton finally make it official. Things can’t go too beautifully, of course, so at the end of the night when Lucas goes to get the restored Comet ready to show Peyton, her placenta previa strikes and he comes back into the house to find her passed out and bleeding on the floor. Will she be OK? I guess we have to tune in next week to find out!

In other news, Julian shows up to the wedding…with the actress who was supposed to play Brooke in the movie as his date. That’s creepy, Julian. Brooke loses it and her freak out leads her to find Nick Lachey in Peyton’s recording studio, force him to put on a tux and be her date for the night. Is bringing Nick Lachey a status symbol? Because my friends probably wouldn’t think so. It certainly makes Julian jealous, though, so mission accomplished Ms. Davis. After their dates disperse at the end of the ceremony they share a nice moment together and Brooke even admits she misses Julian before running away. Is there hope for those crazy kids? I’m thinking…yes.

Nathan is having a bad day of his own, as he found out that his fellow Chiefs player got the call to join the Clippers and not him. It puts a damper on his whole day until Haley takes him backstage during the reception for a little slutty wedding sex to cheer him up. Married people are hot! Especially when they take off their shirts. Thank you, James Lafferty.

Also in this episode: Mia and CHASE! are still sweating Mia’s revelation that he lost his virginity to Brooke (and I still do not care), Mouth and Millie are still going strong, and Skills is still with Jamie’s teacher.

Gossip Girl Episode Recap 2.24: Valley Girls

‘Gossip Girl’: ’80s flashback, on prom night

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

What do you get when you cross “Gossip Girl” with “Pretty in Pink,” throw in a dash of “Mean Girls” and “Never Been Kissed,” a touch of “Less Than Zero,” a pinch of “Almost Famous,” and a smidgen of all of our collective bad memories of ’80s fashion? Yep — tonight’s episode. I’m just thankful there wasn’t any “Carrie” in the mix.

Let’s start at the very beginning, a very fine place to start:
Malibu in 1983 isn’t exactly the Golden Age for Lily. She’s been expelled from her boarding school in Santa Barbara, she’s been uprooted from New York to L.A., her parents have gone through a hideous divorce, and she practically has to stand on her head to get her father’s attention. She meets Daddy (Andrew McCarthy!! Who is looking good, by the way) and basically begs to move in with him, but he’s not terribly interested. which leaves her fleeing her insolent mother’s clutches in her shiny white Porsche, off to find her rebellious sister Carol, who’s bolted the family to live her own life.

Lily and one of Carol’s work pals find Carol at a bar, where No Doubt (who were all about 11 or so in 1983, but I know we’re suspending disbelief) is playing. Carol and her merry band of boys in her band are determined to get back their video from the feckless, skinny tie-wearing, blond, rich, creep who “directed” it for them. His name’s van der Woodsen, by the way. And the soiree at his house — where giddy partygoers are doing both the robot and the Safety Dance — turns into a brawl that Lily finds herself in the middle of. She surprises even herself with her scrappiness, and though she’s kind of mortified by how Carol defines “success” — I mean, she did sell the Beemer that mom and dad got her and invested it with a guy who’s making fanny packs — she also admires the fact that she’s independent.

Which is a bit of a change from the “I’m fine with the path you guys have laid out for me” line she laid on her father in a plea to let her live with him. But when you find yourself in the slammer, it’s not like you have a choice but to grab your inner pugnacity and hang on tight. Her one phone call interrupts her mother’s Jane Fonda workout, and Ceci is by turns mortified and highly irritated that Lily’s antics are messing with her plans for the future. Carol takes the phone as Lily begins to lose her nerve, and tells their mother to sit tight; Lily’s staying with her for a while. Then Lily learns that Carol sold her car to get the bail money, and is introduced to the joys of public transportation.

Caged bird pouting: As Blair & Co. wait for Serena to get sprung from the police station, Blair quite rightly notes that with four hours behind bars, Serena’s done more jail time than either Nicole Richie or Lindsay Lohan. Lily shows up to drop the charges and take Serena home, making some ridiculous argument about how having her daughter arrested was the right thing to do when trying to spare the family from scandal. Like Page Six never reads the police blotter. Then Serena drops her own bomb — Lily wasn’t her one call from jail; grandmother Ceci was. Dum dum dum…

Lily, royally mad at her mother for spilling the beans to Rufus about the son she had and gave away, basically orders her mother out of her house and out of her life. Serena, following in her mother’s footsteps, asserts her independence by deciding to stay in jail until her mother acknowledges that she can run her own life. Oh, brother. Lily goes back to the police station to find Serena gone — Dan’s sprung her and is taking her to the prom.

Lily goes to apologize to Rufus, and more or less acknowledges (with Lily it’s not always easy to tell) that she blew the proposal. He suggests she get over her mother stuff so she can actually be a mother to Serena. But he hasn’t quite forgiven and forgotten enough to mend their relationship just yet. He will, though. Wuss. Lily catches her mother as she’s departing and tries to mend fences, or at least to tolerate her mother and give her a hug. I’d like to throw back a couple of gimlets with Ceci, but amen she’s not my mom.

Prom Night: One thing after another seems to be going wrong with Nate and Blair’s Perfect Night — their hotel reservation canceled, all the limos have been rented (Say what? The economic crash has surely freed up several dozen downtown.), Blair’s dress is ruined, and the florist has sold out of peonies. It really is tragic. Nate suspects Chuck of sabotaging their night, which Chuck of course denies. Nate and Blair finally get there, the very vision of the prom she dreamed of — and sketched — in her pre-adolescent scrapbook. The Mean Girls decide to fix the Prom Queen election so Nelly Yuki would win, but Chuck comes to Blair’s aid, grabs the extra ballots and stuffs the box with votes for Blair — who catches him partway through and accuses him of ruining her night.

Of course Blair wins, and aside from the fact that none of them can dance worth a damn, the only other true reality comes when Blair realizes that her adolescent fantasy about going to prom with her high school boyfriend isn’t really the be-all that she thought it would be — in fact, the whole night already feels like a memory she should move on from. In the end, she kicks big, dumb, wooden-faced Nate to the curb, and realizes that Serena is really the Louise to her Thelma. Or maybe the other way around.

House Spoilers and Season Finale Recap!

‘House’ finale postmortem: Spoilers about tonight’s episode!

House_lWARNING: Stop reading if you have not watched tonight’s episode of House. I mean it. Everyone else, onward and downward…

Among the many bombshells dropped in tonight’s House season finale was the discovery that last week’s massively hyped hookup between House and Cuddy, um, Never. Actually. Happened. It was nothing more than a figment of House’s Vicodin-soaked, Kutner-grievin’, Amber-obsessed imagination. Feeling a little duped, eh? Join the club. Of course, looking back, the signs were there. Series creator David Shore was always very careful to qualify his comments about Huddysex. Take a look:

“Yes, we have figured out the details surrounding Huddy having sex,” Shore told us last January, before adding, “It definitely won’t be what people expect. We have to do things our way, the House way. We wouldn’t want to have the characters do anything out of character.Two months later, Shore was equally as cagey about the impending romp. “I really don’t want to go into the particulars of [them hooking up] because we have found a really cool way to do it, and I don’t want to spoil it. But I will confirm that we are taking things forward [with them].” Bottom line: Technically, Shore didn’t lie. But he was playing me us a little. (BTW, both Shore and exec producer Katie Jacobs declined to be interviewed for this story.)

Other major developments in tonight’s finale and the questions they raised:

•    Chase and Cameron got hitched! Will it last? Will it lead to more screen time for the underused docs next season? Will Jesse Spencer make good on his (presumably tongue-in-cheek) threat to walk? (Nope to that last one; a rep for the actor confirms he’ll be back next season as a series regular.)

•    Kutner came back to life… in House’s head! Did Obama have to sign off on the cameo?

•    As we suspected, a downward spiraling House checked into a psychiatric/rehab facility! How long will he stay there? Might he bump into Wilson’s brother while he’s there? Will he pass the time by having more imaginary sex with Cuddy?

Simonds explained previously how the Book of Changes relates to their abilities, saying “Over the very, very long span of time that they’ve been watching, (the Watchers) have observed that history tends to repeat itself.” “That gives them a certain ability to make a pretty good educated guess about what the future is. They are able to know something about what’s taking shape, let’s say, in a character’s womb. And yes, it’s possible to know certain things about the gift that might be growing.” It had been revealed that Melinda’s baby will play a huge role as her “apprentice” for the fifth season.

Jim Clancy 711 is November 7 (episode he died in)
Sam Lucas 1411 is November 14 (episode we met Sam Lucas and Jim jumped into him)
Andrea Marino 2804 is April 28 (when the plane crashed in Season 1)
Eli James 310 is October 3 (Season 4 premiere and we meet Eli, he died in the fire but Jim brought him back with his paramedic skills)
Zoe Ramos 1505 is May 15 (Season 4 Season Finale, she will die I guess) And the wording under Zoe’s name is “She helps the listener join the dead”


Melinda Gordon 2509 is September 25, possibly Season 5 premiere and that date is a Friday.

That looks like Melinda but in another time. Look at the dress…and necklace.

Season 5 Spoilers!!!

Ghostly whispers about next season (yes, next!), include: Dr. Jim (?!), a certain baby’s special gifts, the “Book of Changes” and a possible Grandview space-time continuum!

Are we going to see more of the Watchers on Ghost Whisperer? Ghost Whisperer show runner P.K. Simonds says we will “definitely” see more Watchers and begin to learn about how the “very important” Book of Changes relates to their abilities: “Over the very, very long span of time that they’ve been watching, [the Watchers] have observed that history tends to repeat itself. That gives them a certain ability to make a pretty good educated guess about what the future is. They are able to know something about what’s taking shape, let’s say, in a character’s womb. And yes, it’s possible to know certain things about the gift that might be growing.”

Do you have any inside info about Ghost Whisperer? Show runner P.K. Simonds broke the news to us that Melinda is preggers with Jim’s baby, but that’s not all he had to say about Ghost Whisperer’s newest castmember: It’s a “very special baby with an important role to play,” who will inherit unique abilities from Melinda. But Melinda’s “new, young apprentice,” says Simonds, also possesses “other kinds of gifts that we haven’t explored on the show yet.”

So great that Jim remembered himself on Ghost Whisperer, but what’s next? Do they still have two guys playing one character? According to Ghost Whisperer show runner P.K. Simonds, “We might catch a couple of glimpses” of Kenneth Mitchell, the actor who plays Sam, during the remainder of the season, but that’s it. And we’ll see David Conrad as Jim, but everyone on the show still perceives him as Sam. “He can’t resume [his Jim life] exactly, because Sam Lucas doesn’t have a license to practice emergency medicine, but obstacles are also opportunities. He finds a new direction that actually allows him to go after a specific dream he’s always had.” Like, say, Jim’s dream of medical school? Looks like Grandview residents might eventually enjoy Jim’s bedside manner via Dr. Sam Lucas… Source: Kristin on E!Online

Desperate Housewives Episode Recap 5.22 “Marry Me A Little”

‘Desperate Housewives’: Underneath the mask

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

Desperate Housewives” is gearing up for next week’s big finale, so tonight featured far more setup than payoff. Luckily, it also featured a number of amusing one-liners. And a number of valuable lessons about the dangers of plastic surgery, robbing yourself, overspending, and having a private conversation while an evil mastermind is listening in on the phone. I hope you all were taking notes!

Susan and Jackson take Dave on a rollercoaster ride of emotion. They’re getting married! Jackson totally knows Dave was backstage at the club that night! But he’s an illegal immigrant and easily taken care of! While I’m sorry Jackson got deported, I have no faith that Katherine really planned to follow through on that alimony “Mike” promised after she and Mike got married, so…this is definitely for the best as far as Susan is concerned. You know, aside from Dave still being on the loose and targeting her son. And aside from her ex-husband still being on track to marry her friend.

Bree, in the meantime, is seriously Up to No Good. She must reeeeeally want to keep her money, because trashing her own house must be the worst kind of torture for Bree (though hilarious to watch). At first, when Orson got all sentimental and sweet on her, I thought he knew what Bree was up to and it was calculated to make her have second thoughts. But his surprise and disappointment at finding the storage unit with all the “stolen” loot seemed genuine. I’m also going to point out that if it’s a mask that’s easily re-ordered and paid for, than it probably wasn’t worth “stealing” in the first place. And can we take a second to talk Bree and Karl? Because they’re totally going to hook up, right? (And yeah, EW.)

Oh, Gaby. Gaby, Gaby, Gaby. I mean, okay, her friend’s tragic tale from Tiffany flatware to soup kitchen meals was a bit more nuanced than I thought, but still. Someone needs to sit our friend down and make her watch the MC Hammer episode of “Behind the Music,” because it shouldn’t be news to Gaby that money is a finite resource. Luckily, I guess, it doesn’t sounds like both kids are college material. (“Bobblehead”? Mean, but it totally cracked me up.)

Tom’s midlife crisis is, at this point, grounds for divorce solely based on annoyingness. I mean, his family was bordering on financial collapse just a few episodes ago, and he’s considering plastic surgery as a way of youthening his way back into the workforce? Maybe you should just spend five minutes on the internet, buddy – it’s not like Twitter is a state secret. The plastic surgery victim Lynette introduces Tom to will probably feature in my nightmares tonight – he looked like the love child of Joan Rivers and an alien. Terrifying.

Favorite quotes:

  • Tom to his college friend, guessing how he looks so young: “Diet? Exercise? Eating a bowl of stem cells every morning?”
  • After Susan threatens to call off the fake marriage. Jackson: “They’ll send me back!” Susan: “It’s Canada, not Iran!”
  • As they enter their ransacked house. Bree: “Orson, we’ve been robbed!” Orson: “It wasn’t me. I swear.”

We looked at a few others that we want to introduce, but we’re going to wait for Comic-Con to release all that.”
