One Tree Hill Season 7 Premiere Recap: “4:30 AM (Apparently They Were Traveling Abroad)”

One Tree Hill Episode Recap: “4:30 AM (Apparently They Were Traveling Abroad)”

After saying good-bye to One Tree Hill couple Lucas and Peyton, many of us have wondered how the new season would continue without them (and whether their departure would be explained). Jamie Scott’s seventh birthday served as the introduction to all the new cast members and also gave us the only answer we’d get, for now, about where Lucas, Peyton and little Sawyer have gone. So to all you OTH fans, welcome to Season 7. Now let’s start recapping….read more

Gossip Girl Episode Recap: “Reversals of Fortune”

Supernatural Season 5 Premiere Recap “Sympathy for the Devil”

‘Supernatural’ Premiere: The Devil is in Delaware

Leave it to ‘Supernatural’ to pick up exactly where they left us at the end of season 5 – with the Winchester brothers in the abandoned convent, a portal to hell opening at their feet and the knowledge that they are about to meet Lucifer and unmake the world.

Supernatural Episode Recap: “Sympathy for the Devil”

The apocalypse is starting; Lucifer is rising; the world is experiencing disasters of epic proportions. What are Sam and Dean doing? Well, they are dealing with the fallout from last year. Find something to hold onto because from the looks of it, Season 5 is going to be a bumpy ride. Bumpy in the best way possible, of course.

This premiere rocked, didn’t it? And I’m not just talking about AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck,” the song that accompanied the Season 4 recap at the beginning of the episode. To me, “Sympathy for the Devil” is a great set-up to what I’m betting will be an amazing saga. It’s also awesome to see Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki doing a great job with the troubled relationship that is the Winchester brothers. It has to be troubled after what went on last season. Sam trusting Ruby over Dean isn’t something Dean’s just going to forget. Sam losing himself to what turned out to be an addiction is going to mean a lot of struggle, introspection, and hopefully a lot of growth for the younger brother. I’m looking forward to seeing how all of that is going to play out and I hope you guys are too.

Sound off on the new season and tell us what you think after you watch the premiere.

Supernatural Episode Discussion: “Sympathy for the Devil”

Supernatural

Tonight marks the fifth-season premiere of the CW’s Supernatural. When we last saw Sam and Dean, they were on very different paths. Series creator Eric Kripke has said that the series is on a five-year plan. Could this season be the end of the Winchester brothers’ story? And does that necessarily equal the end of Supernatural?

“To New Beginnings!”

The CW kicks off its sophomore season of 90210 this week by picking up where we left off. (To summarize: Annie called the cops on her friends’ post-prom party and ended up involved in a hit-and-run.) Naomi, Silver and Adrianna bond over the summer. Annie, on the other hand, shuts out everyone in her life as she can’t help but think about her accident on prom night.

‘True Blood’ Season 2 Premiere Recap

‘True Blood’: Season 2 premiere

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Random thoughts:

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

‘True Blood’ exclusive: Lafayette speaks!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Private Practice: Spoilers, Scoop & an Interview

The fact that Addison’s workplace is the Oceanside Wellness Clinic calls to mind the 1963 Jan and Dean hit “Surf City,” where there were “two girls for every boy.” Sure enough, that’s what lucky Cooper can look forward to with Charlotte and Violet as the second season opens. But for Sam and Dell, who are fighting for Naomi, it’s the other way around. The same might be said for Pete, who had ratcheted down to “friends” with Addison when police officer Kevin Nelson (David Sutcliffe) arrived on the scene. We’ll see how that one plays out. Meanwhile, the clinic’s going broke. — Paul Droesch, TV Guide

Katewalsh Private Practice: Addison is still torn between Pete and the cute cop, played by Gilmore Girls‘ Christopher. Naomi is still confused by her feelings for both Sam and Dell… and she’s also hiding something quite serious. Cooper and Charlotte’s relationship is moving forward, while Cooper and Violet’s relationship has taken a real step back. And someone we know and love is quitting the practice. — KorbiTV at Zap2it.com
