Castle – Season 6 – Official Press Release

Source: ABC

When viewers first met Richard Castle — a famous mystery novelist and divorced father raising his teenage daughter, while being kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother — he was creatively blocked. But when the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books, Castle found inspiration in NYPD Detective Kate Beckett, a bright and aggressive homicide detective with a fascination for odd and offbeat cases stemming from the years-old unsolved murder of her own mother. Though they instantly clashed, sparks of another sort began to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle stepped in to help find the copycat killer. Once that initial case was solved, Castle and Beckett continued to investigate strange homicides in New York, combining Castle’s writer intuition and Beckett’s creative detective work.

Then, after four seasons of “will they” or “won’t they,” Castle and Beckett finally gave into their feelings for each other. Working together as a couple during Season 5, the crime-solving dynamic duo navigated new chapters in their lives, culminating in a cliffhanger in which Castle got down on one knee and asked Beckett to marry him. Season 6 will begin with her answer…

With Beckett as his muse, Castle has penned a series of bestselling novels featuring Nikki Heat, a tough, sexy and professional NYPD homicide detective, and he resurrected Derrick Storm — the main character of his first set of books — in a series of original eBook shorts and a full length novel. Castle’s much anticipated fifth Nikki Heat thriller, Deadly Heat (September 17, 2013), goes on sale this fall. The previous four mysteries in the Heat series — Heat Wave (September 2009), Naked Heat (September 2010), Heat Rises (September 2011) and Frozen Heat (September 2012) — all spent multiple consecutive weeks on the New York Times and USA Today bestsellers lists. In addition, the newest Derrick Storm thriller, Storm Front (May 2013), and Castle’s Storm eBook original short series — A Brewing Storm (May 2012), A Raging Storm (July 2012) and A Bloody Storm (August 2012) — all debuted on the New York Times bestsellers list.

In addition for the new season, a third graphic novel from Marvel Entertainment – Castle: Richard Castle’s A Calm Before the Storm – recently debuted in hardcover format, written by New York Times best-selling author Peter David (“Hulk”). The first two graphic novels – Castle: Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm and Castle: Richard Castle’s Storm Season, written by Brian Michael Bendis (“Avengers”) and Kelly Sue DeConnick (“Captain Marvel”) – continue to sell well since these graphic fiction adaptations debuted in 2011. All three graphic novels are on sale in comic shops, the Marvel Comics app, iBookstore, Nook Bookstore and everywhere books are sold.

“Castle” stars Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle, Stana Katic as NYPD Detective Kate Beckett, Tamala Jones as Medical Examiner Lanie Parish, Jon Huertas as NYPD Detective Javier Esposito, Seamus Dever as NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan, Penny Johnson Jerald as NYPD Captain Victoria Gates, Molly Quinn as Alexis Castle with Susan Sullivan as Martha Rodgers.

Supernatual Season 6 Finale Spoilers: “Let it Bleed” — Character Deaths

Supernatural Boss on Finale: “Characters That People Like Will Be Killed”

Jared Padalecki

Supernatural‘s war in Heaven is upon us as the series airs its two-part finale on Friday (8/7c on The CW), and showrunner Sera Gamble promises some deaths, Sam’s long-awaited breakdown and “a lot of Castiel” in both episodes.

Gamble wrote the night’s first episode, “Let It Bleed,” which introduces a new player — at least historically — into the series. Apparently, the late, real-life horror writer H.P. Lovecraft is somehow mixed up in the Winchesters’ battle to keep Purgatory at bay. Anyone familiar with his Chthulu mythos will recognize that his terrifying creations fit right in with the Supernatural world.

Supernatural: Castiel bends time and truth

In the second episode, “The Man Who Knew Too Much,” we see the culmination of what’s going on with Castiel and his season-long quest to oppose Raphael.

Check out what Gamble has to say about Season 6’s finale event:

What can you tease about the episode you wrote, “Let It Bleed”?
Sera Gamble: One of the big arcs we played this season for Dean, when we had first seen Dean (Jensen Ackles) this season, he had been retired for an entire year and was living with Lisa and Ben. He left them to resume hunting and be with Sam. While we’re glad he did that because we want to watch him on the show and this in many ways is clearly the right choice for everyone, I think there’s a part that he left behind with them. More to the point, just having been in their lives put them in danger. He has had this fear that something bad might happen to them. In Episode 21, basically long-story-short, that comes to pass. They are unexpectedly taken and he has to deal with that. He has to deal with the repercussions of having been in their lives. It’s basically Dean’s worst nightmare.

How does this part pair with the second half of the finale, “The Man Who Knew Too Much”?
Gamble: We have so many mythologies going on that when we heard that we were going to air Episode 21 and 22 on the same night, we talked about breaking it as one huge, two-hour episode with a short cliff-hanger in the middle, but what ended up happening was two distinct episodes. Episode 21 deals with a lot of Dean stuff, and Episode 22 deals with a lot of Sam (Jared Padalecki) stuff. That’s just the way it worked out. Both guys are very active in both episodes. There’s a lot of Dean in Episode 22 and there’s a lot of Sam in Episode 21. And there’s a lot of Bobby (Jim Beaver), a lot of Castiel (Mischa Collins) in both. But it kind of ended up being Dean-heavy in 21 and Sam-heavy in 22.

What is the Sam-heavy episode going to deal with?
Gamble: This season we structured it with a lot of mysteries and twists and turns, it’s kind of like this noir-style thing, so there’s like a couple of big bombshells. Here’s something definite I can say about Episode 22 that’s probably helpful. When Sam got his soul back, Death put this wall up in his mind. Behind the wall are all of his memories of hell, which are incredibly dangerous to him. We know that that wall could crack, and we know that that wall could break. We’ve been kind of threatening this all season. So Episode 22 deals with that, his amnesia, the wall breaking. We promised it all season.

What can we expect from Castiel now that he’s on his own without the Winchesters?
Gamble: The war in heaven becomes a more urgent, heavy thing for Castiel. That will come to the fore at the end of the season. You’ll see Castiel and Raphael face off as well. We have a lot to juggle.

TV Guide Magazine exclusive video: Behind the scenes with the Supernatural stars

In an interview, director Robert Singer had hinted that “everyone is not what they appear.” What kind of surprises can we expect along those lines?
Gamble: I think hopefully if we’ve done our job right, there will be a couple of gasps in the last few episodes. Not everyone is who they appear to be on the surface. But it’s not like anyone’s going to rip their face off and be somebody else underneath though. We’re really not that show. In certain ways we’ve always told those kinds of stories. We always have a thread of darkness and Sam and Dean worrying who they can trust. Their world has always been shaky in that way. We’ve derived a lot of interesting and kind of fun stories in a dark way because of that.

It wouldn’t be a Supernatural finale without some casualties …
Gamble: We definitely kill people. Characters will be killed and transformed. It’s safe to say that characters that people like will be killed. I find that usually when we kill somebody there’s a certain amount of blowback because they’re always characters that people likes. I usually don’t get thank-you notes for the people that we kill. But we have that small group of characters that we go back to because they’re precious. The reason we go back to them again and again and again is because they were cool.

Is there a possibility of seeing John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in these last episodes?
Gamble: You won’t see John Winchester in Season 6, I’m sorry;. There’s always a chance we’ll bring him back at some point in show. It’s a combination of the right story and Jeffrey Dean being available at that time because he’s a busy and popular actor, which we’re super-happy about for him.

Who do you think will die in the finale?

Supernatural Season 6 Spoilers!

SUPERNATURAL: Season six will be a season of mystery and shadow. Heaven and Hell have been left in complete disarray since the apocalyptic events of season five. And now, monsters, angels and demons roam across a lawless and chaotic landscape. And so Dean Winchester, who has retired from hunting and sworn never to return, finds himself being pulled back into his old life – pulled back by none other than Sam Winchester, who has escaped from Hell.  The two reunite to beat back the rising tide of creatures and demon-spawn, but they quickly realize that neither are who they used to be, their relationship isn’t what it used to be, and that nothing is what it seems.

Exclusive: ‘Supernatural’ boss on why he stepped down and what’s coming up (hint: monsters!)

A new Friday time slot isn’t the only major change facing Supernatural as it heads into its sixth season (beginning Sept. 24). Series creator Eric Kripke—whose five-season-long end-of-days-themed arc came to a close last May—is stepping down as day-to-day showrunner in favor of an advisory role. (Longtime EP Sera Gamble has been tapped to succeed him.) In the following Q&A, Kripke sets the record straight about the reason he relinquished his top-dog status, and previews the “undiscovered country” at the heart of the show’s top secret second act.

Why did you decide to step down as showrunner?
ERIC KRIPKE:
We were reaching the end of this five-year story line [so] I thought the timing was right. I knew that we were closing this chapter and opening a new one. It felt like it was the right time to take a step back and focus on new projects, but still keep my grubby little mitts in the show. It was a lot about Sera and her enthusiasm and her ambition. I really think after five years of all of my crap, to have someone who has a fresh perspective and a fresh energy on these characters and this universe is healthy for the show. Supernatural has always been a show about reinvention. We try really hard not to do the same thing. I thought that Sera’s [increased] involvement really helped guarantee that this season is going to feel a little different, a little fresher. She has a different sensibility.

What exactly will your role be?
KRIPKE:
I see my job as being a safety net and just making sure that the show falls in the broadest possible parameters…. Sera and Bob [Singer] are pitching episode ideas to me. I’m in the room so far for every episode break. I pitch a couple of episode ideas, pitch a couple issues of how to fix some problems and some breaks. I’m giving some script notes. I’m still in it; I think, frankly, Sera and Bob wish I backed the hell up. [Laughs]

Will you be writing any episodes?
KRIPKE:
I think I will certainly be writing an episode this year. I am also slated to direct an episode in February.

What do you say to those fans who felt the show should have ended with season 5?
KRIPKE:
My answer to that is time will tell. I have high hopes for this season. I remember the same kind of concerns when we bumped off Yellow Eyes in season 2. We killed their Big Bad and where were we going to go now? We always found a different place to go. People forget that I didn’t [originally] want angels in the show. Then we introduced the angels and then it spun the story line in a way that was really rich for us. This is a show that ends story lines and starts new ones and reinvents itself. I think because it is hardwired into the DNA of the show, it will weather a lot of transition and growth. The question is not should it have ended, the question is, Is the new story line compelling and interesting and is it an arena of this universe that we haven’t explored yet and is it putting Sam and Dean into new situations that we haven’t seen before? I think it does all of the above.

Okay, what is the new story line?
KRIPKE:
One of the first things Sera and Bob talked to me about was that the angel thing is rightfully exhausted, so where do you go from there? Not to say that angels and demons won’t be a part of the story line, because they will. Castiel will be there. Crowley will be there. The beloved characters will be threading into the story. But the great undiscovered country of Supernatural is kind of right in front of our face: creatures and monsters. We have had so many creature episodes but we haven’t actually explained where they came from—[similar] to the way we have explored angels and demons. How do they feel about the situations they are in? Are they from here? Where did the first ones come from? How did werewolves and vampires and shape-shifters all begin anyway? I thought that was a really smart notion on [Sera and Bob’s] part, just exploring the history of that, because that was something that we never investigated on the show.

How does Grandpa [Mitch Pileggi] fit into this?
KRIPKE:
He’s representative of the other side of this exploration, which is that Sam and Dean have a family of hunters that they never knew they had. Their grandfather is the head of that family. Remember, it’s not the Winchesters who are famous hunters, it’s the Campbells. And we are saying that the Campbells are part of a timeline of hunters that have been there since the country’s origins. As Sera put it, they were hacking heads off vampires on the Mayflower. For Sam and Dean to really tap into a family history, which they never knew they had and again never really investigated before, is pretty interesting to us.

Bones Season 6 Spoilers: Big Changes!

Exclusive: ‘Bones’ boss promises ‘big changes’ next season

Bones-finaleImage Credit: Greg Gayne/FoxSPOILER ALERT: If you have yet to watch tonight’s Bones finale, stop reading now. I repeat, if you have yet to watch tonight’s Bones finale, stop reading now. For the last time, if you have yet to watch tonight’s Bones finale, stop reading now. Everyone else, onward and downward…

A word about the season finale of Bones, in which the entire Jeffersonian team — Booth and Brennan included — split up: whoa! That said, let’s ask executive producer Stephen Nathan one of the only two questions you have — and since “WTF?” is rather a rude query, I’m going with, “Okay, what next?”

“The start of the season will have Booth and Brennan meeting [12 months later] at the coffee cart, and the series will start again… though on very different footing,” he says. “There will be big changes.”

Big as in, maybe B&B don’t come back alone big? “Perhaps not alone,” Nathan teases, adding, “There’s a potential for a new recurring character or two next season.”

But don’t freak — or try not to, he pleads. When the Jeffersonian team reassembles, your favorite characters will all be there, and they’ll “be the same people, [just] with one solid year of independent life under their belts. So when they see each other again, they will be different.

“Our intention was to really shake things up,” Nathan continues, “so that we don’t just come back with the same dynamic.”

Grey’s Anatomy Season Finale Recap: “Sanctuary/Death and All His Friends”

Grey’s Anatomy season finale recap, hour one, Sanctuary: Seattle Grace turns into a war zone

Source: entertainment.gather.com

Meredith Grey loves the hospital. “Correction: loved it here,” she says. The halls of Seattle Grace are no longer safe, Meredith tells everyone in her voice-over in the Season 6 finale of Grey’s Anatomy on May 20, 2010. Within the first 10 minutes of the show, the shooter–Mr. Gary Clark–has taken control of the hospital, shooting down surgeons and anyone who gets in his way.

[WARNING: RECAP below. SPOILERS! Don’t read if you haven’t watched and don’t want to know what happened! ]

Mr. Clark has appeared a few times on Grey’s, most recently when he brought a lawsuit against the hospital and Chief Derek Shepherd for “killing” his wife by pulling the plug.

“I’m the man,” Mr. Clark says. “I let you decide that she should die… but I’m a man now.” He also thinks he’s God, taking the life of everyone in the hospital into his hands, even as he says surgeons are like God, handing out judgement over who should live and who should die.

But not everyone knows that there’s a shooter in the hospital. Arizona and Callie fight, letting out all their grievances against one another; Arizona doesn’t trust her, Callie doesn’t want to change for her when Arizona isn’t willing to change either. Bailey takes care of patient Mary, played by Mandy Moore, who is receiving a blood transfusion. Hunt and Teddy Altman try to save Pete, a man shot after he got into a car accident; and Cristina is through with Hunt, or so she says. Then there’s Meredith, who has just learned she’s pregnant, and she’s actually happy.

But before she can tell Shepard, the hospital goes on lock-down–meaning no one is supposed to leave the area they are currently in.

Mr. Clark goes through the hospital, constantly getting turned around. No one seems willing to help him, and he’s clearly not thinking clearly. When Mercy-Wester pixie Reed won’t help Clark find the Chief, he shoots her right in the forehead. Karev hears the shot, and he’s shot in his side, left for dead.

As the hour one season finale Sanctuary progresses, everyone is at risk and everyone is trying to save lives.

Lexie and Mark find Karev in the elevator and try to save him on the conference room table. Bailey tries to save Percy, while Mary lends a hand. And then Clark finds Shepherd on the catwalk. The episode has been tense and dramatic all the way through, but this time Clark doesn’t just shoot mindlessly. He talks to Derek, giving Meredith and Cristina the chance to find him–but the friends can’t do anything to help.

Shepherd tries to talk Clark down, talking about why he became a doctor–to save lives after he saw his own father shot down in cold blood. But Clark’s sympathy is forgotten as soon as Shepherd’s assistant April rushes forward. Shepherd is shot, and Clark runs away, like the coward he really is.

But that’s just the first hour. Clark was going after Shepherd, but he wasn’t the only one Clark holds responsible for his wife’s death…. Who else is he after?

Grey’s Anatomy Season Finale Recap, Hour Two, Death and All His Friends: Live or die, choices

The second hour of the Grey’s Anatomy Season 6 season finale, Death and All His Friends, is even more intense than the first. Derek is dying, but in the voice-over he says life is all about choices.

Prior to the season finale, Shonda Rhimes had teased that Cristina and Meredith would be performing the most important surgeries of their lives, and she wasn’t kidding.

But wait, there’s more. (And yes, I know you want to know about Shepherd, but the show made us wait, so I’ll make you wait, too). Bailey does all she can to save Percy, but the elevators are shut off and there’s nothing more she can do but wait with him.

Karev’s life depends on Mark and Lexie. In gasping breaths, he tells Mark that he should live life more fully, meaning: eat more bacon and have more sex. But that’s one of the few light moments of the show. Lexie goes to get more supplies; when she leaves the room, she encounters Mr. Clark.

Mr. Clark knows who she is, because Lexie was one of the three people he had planned to kill. Why? She physically pulled the plug on his wife. He also came to get the chief, as well as the attending doctor, Dr. Weber. But before he can shoot Lexie, SWAT shoots Clark. In the most unbelievable part of the hour, Clark manages to disappear back into Seattle Grace without SWAT running after him, and his path of destruction continues.

Meanwhile, with Hunt and Altman already escorted outside, Cristina is the only cardio surgeon there to save the Chief and her best friend’s husband. She forces Meredith to sit outside the surgery room and not to look. In Ellen Pompeo’s best acting ever, she tells April, “It took me a long time to find him… My best friend’s hands are inside his chest. You don’t get to cry about that.”

Owen Hunt chooses Cristina, and he foolishly rushes back into the hospital to find her. Instead, he finds Clark in the surgery room, holding a gun to Cristina’s head as she operates. Clark demands she stop, but he doesn’t shoot Shepherd again, even though he could end it right there. Rather, he wants to control everyone in the room as he has for the entire show.

In the most heart-wrenching moment of the entire two-hour season finale, Meredith bursts into the room, asking Clark to kill her. Eye for an eye, she says. She’s Lexie’s sister. She’s like a daughter to Dr. Weber. She’s the Chief’s wife. Clark hesitates, giving Hunt the chance to jump at him… but he’s not quick enough. Clark shoots him, too.

Avery, assisting Cristina, tells Cristina to stop, to raise her hands before Clark shoots again… he proves that Shepherd is dead when the heart monitor line goes flat, and Clark walks out of the room, satisfied and ready to find Dr. Weber. Meredith cries out, falls to the floor–and then Avery reconnects Shepherd to the machine. As Cristina finishes working on Shepherd, Meredith helps Hunt, and then after all that stress, it’s no surprise when she miscarries.

But it still isn’t over. Dr. Weber thinks he’s still in charge, and he manages to get into the hospital. He gives Clark a choice, since he has one bullet left: “Life in prison or an afterlife with your wife.” The Chief isn’t afraid to die: “Death is not justice but end of a beautiful journey.”

A single shot rings out and then SWAT finally shows for real.

Shepherd’s voice-over repeats the theme of the hour. “Human life is made up of choices. And it’s not always in her hands.”

This was an amazing season finale, one of the best in the six seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. There’s no cliffhanger like last year–will Izzie and/or George live?–but I don’t care about that. This season finale brought people together, just as it tore them apart by death.

Recap – Grey’s Anatomy Season 6 Finale

Wow. Now that is what I call a powerful season ender we have with Grey’s Anatomy 6.23 and 6.24. From the opening ten minutes before the first commercial break to the very end we are taken on an emotional roller coaster, and we see no one was safe from the shooter tonight. We learn quickly that the shooter is a grieving man we have seen before a couple of times this season – Gary Clark. This is the husband of the woman that died after an operation by Webber and Lexie. She was DNR, so Derek didn’t allow heroic measures to save. This made the man sue the hospital. A lawsuit he lost, and this is his revenge. He comes to the hospital with the intentions of shooting Lexie, Derek and Webber. However, he doesn’t find them, and in his search for these three he shoots many others. He shoots surgeons, nurses and hospital security as he makes his way from floor to floor. The first to die is Reed. He also shoots Alex and Charles, and by the time he is through he finds Derek and shoots him.

Alex lives and Charles lives for some time, but Bailey sees he will die when they can’t get him to an operating room. She sits with him and her patient Mary, played by guest star Mandy Moore, and stays with him until he dies. His last request is he wants Reed to know he loved her. He doesn’t know she has died. Alex also has a moment where he thinks Lexie is Izzie, and he practically begs her not to leave him ever again. This is after Lexie told him she loved him in front of Sloan. We all know Sloan was trying to win her back, but he puts his focus into saving Alex. The shooter does have some kind of heart though.

He doesn’t shoot some. He lets April go. He doesn’t shoot Yang, but he does threaten to do it when he finds her in the operating room trying to repair the damage he did to Derek. Meredith even tries to divert the shooter’s attention to her. She gives up herself, but Cristina says to the shooter that he shouldn’t shoot a pregnant woman. This moment is chaos, and Owen is shot. It is a small round though. Straight through the shoulder. Meredith goes to work on him, and while she is doing this – she has a miscarriage. Webber goes into the hospital. He was out when the shooter came in, and he is the one that finds Gary Clark. Gary’s plan was to shoot Webber, and then himself. There is a problem though. He only has one bullet left. Webber taunts him into making a decision. We aren’t shown that decision, but we see Webber walking and that tells us what happened. The man shot himself. Alex makes it, and once Yang performs surgery and completes it – Derek is also saved. A powerful episode full of emotion. What will happen next season? Will the hospital ever be the same?

Exclusive: ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ boss answers your burning season finale questions

Meredith-greys-anatomyImage Credit: Scott Garfield/ABCSPOILER ALERT: If you have yet to watch last night’s Grey’s Anatomy finale, stop reading now. I repeat, if you have yet to watch last night’s Grey’s Anatomy finale, stop reading now. For the last time, if you have yet to watch last night’s Grey’s Anatomy, stop reading now. Everyone else, onward and downward…

Say what you will about Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes (Baby killer! McDreamy shooter! Nightmare inflictor!), but the woman knows how to write a finale. Last night’s season 6 climax — in which a crazed gunman terrorized Seattle Grace for the better part of two hours — had 15 million viewers (yours truly among them) biting their nails down to nubs while convulsing on the edge of their seats. When the dust settled, there were two significant deaths, one tragic miscarriage, and roughly 100 nagging questions. In this exclusive interview, Rhimes tackles the 20 most popular.

So what have the last 18 hours been like for you? I know you were nervous about this episode.
SHONDA RHIMES:
I was. I was very nervous because I felt like what was coming wasn’t territory that we’d ever covered before, and I didn’t know how the audience was going to take it. I feel like I got a lot of really good responses from it, and I feel like it was an emotional ride for everybody. I wanted it to feel a little bit like a stand-alone movie, and I think it did.

One of the most controversial aspects of the finale was Meredith’s miscarriage. Did you ever consider a different outcome?
RHIMES:
If she didn’t have the miscarriage, she wouldn’t have been pregnant at the beginning of the episode.

So the pregnancy was all about the miscarriage?
RHIMES:
It wasn’t necessarily all about the [miscarriage], but it was about Meredith Grey being truly happy. And for me, when you’re watching that storyline, when Meredith is having a miscarriage and she basically says, “I’m having a miscarriage. I need Lidocaine. Are you going to help me or not?,” you realize how incredibly strong she is and how badass she’s being in that moment. To me, that’s the hero moment. If you don’t have that moment you don’t really have the story of Meredith Grey.

At the end of the episode, she throws her positive pregnancy test in the trash. What did that symbolize?
RHIMES:
The death of the exciting dream that she had been holding on to all day… I feel like you don’t ever know how much you want something until its been taken away from you. Meredith figured out in this episode how much she wanted to be with Derek, how much she wanted to be his wife, and how much she wanted to have his children.

You once said Mer and Der would never have children. Have you changed your mind about that?
RHIMES:
[Long pause] Yes. I’ve written my way out of that I think.

So there may still be a baby in their future?
RHIMES:
Definitely. For me, this is the beginning of the baby story.

I’m curious about the decision to end the episode with just Meredith, as opposed to Meredith at Derek’s bedside.
RHIMES:
The [episode] was not about aftermath. And to me, to see Meredith and Derek happy with everything and fine was a scene of aftermath.

Will the season premiere be about the immediate aftermath?
RHIMES:
I don’t know.

So you haven’t decided whether there will be a time jump?
RHIMES:
We’ve talked about it. We’ve talked about it endlessly. We’ve come up with 40 thousand different scenarios. The truth is, I’m exhausted. We just finished season 6. I don’t even want to think about season 7.

How does Meredith not revert back to dark and twisty Meredith after all of this?
RHIMES:
I don’t know how she doesn’t, but she doesn’t. I think in a lot of ways Meredith has become the mother of the group. I don’t think there’s a lot of room for dark and twisty when everybody’s been affected. We joke a lot in the writers’ room that because Meredith’s childhood was so damaging, in a way, she’s better equipped to handle this stuff than anybody else.

How did you arrive at the decision to kill off Reed and Charles?
RHIMES:
It was both really easy and really hard. We’ve been layering in these people all season, and I wanted you to feel comfortable with them and their personalities. I also really wanted [to lose] people who we barely knew. It’s sort of like what Charles says to Bailey: “I know you really didn’t like me.” And Bailey says, “Oh, I liked you.” And then he’s gone. By the time we fell in love with him, he was gone.

Did you ever think, In order to do this story justice, I need to kill off a major character?
RHIMES:
No, because — and I said this before the episode ever aired — this was not about who lived and who died. To me, it was about what was gained and what was lost. The real death of the episode is the miscarriage.

Had Katherine Heigl not left the show, what role would Izzie have played in the finale? Would she have been killed?
RHIMES:
I have no idea.

Really?
RHIMES:
Really.

Talk to me about the decision to have Alex call out for Izzie after he was shot.
RHIMES:
I really wanted to find a way to deal with how much Alex is missing Izzie. And it felt really poignant to me that if he was lying on a table dying he’d be calling for her.

Lexie confessed her love for Alex, but some fans aren’t buying it. She didn’t really make a decision between Alex and Mark in that moment, did she?
RHIMES:
I don’t think she could have possibly made a decision in that moment. The thing I think is interesting is that Alex definitely made his decision. So I don’t necessarily know that there’s a triangle there. When Alex called for Izzie — when in your hour of need you’re calling for another woman — I think he made his decision. So I don’t think there’s a triangle.

In other words, hope is very much alive for Mark and Lexie?
RHIMES:
Yes, there’s definitely hope.

Let’s shift gears to the actual crisis itself. I get that there’s a certain suspension of disbelief that comes with stories like this. But I don’t get why the SWAT team didn’t take the gunman out after they shot him the first time. It looked like they easily could have gotten a second shot in there.
RHIMES:
They didn’t have a clear shot of him again.

But he was just laying there on the floor.
RHIMES:
But Lexie was in between them. And then she got up and was still in between them. And she’s running away and he’s running away at the same time. So I don’t see that they could have gotten a clear shot.

Fans are joking that Seattle has the worst SWAT team in the country.
RHIMES:
That’s a shame because we have these super awesome SWAT guys who talked us through everything. And we had a meeting in which I said, “Seriously, it would be five guys in a group searching [the entire] hospital? That sounds crazy to me.” And they said that’s how it works. And for me, it made it so much more horrible because that hospital is enormous. And the idea that just five guys are going to save them is ridiculous on so many levels, and yet, that’s how it works. When you’re looking for a shooter, you don’t have a bunch of people all spread out apparently.

Jessica Capshaw is pregnant in real life. Arizona decides at the end of the episode that she wants to have kids with Callie. Is there a connection there?
RHIMES:
No — although I love that Jessica is pregnant. I feel like every year we have to have somebody on the show who’s pregnant and we have to hide the pregnancy. It’s what we do now.

So the pregnancy won’t be written into the storyline?
RHIMES:
Nope.

Where was Bailey’s beau Ben in this episode?
RHIMES:
Ben was not working that day. There was a great debate in the writers’ room that we should have Bailey say something about Ben not working. And I felt like, no, we only see Ben sporadically as it is. He’s not at work that day. And I didn’t want to spend time — because we have so little of it and I had to leave 18 minutes on the cutting room floor —  chatting about where Ben was. I felt like you knew Ben wasn’t there because you didn’t see him there. [But] I think there’s going to [fallout] about that later.

So we’ll see some resolution there — even though Jason George (Ben) is on your new show, Off the Map?
RHIMES:
I hope so.

You mentioned in your blog post about the finale that April and Jackson are “part of the tribe now.” What did you mean exactly?
RHIMES:
For the purpose of story — because I don’t write things thinking, What are the business decisions going on in the background — April and Jackson have really been folded into the group.

I understand no official decision has been made about Sarah Drew and Jesse Williams becoming series regulars next season, but, at this point, can any argument be made against it happening?
RHIMES:
I don’t have one. Do you?

I don’t.
RHIMES:
I don’t have one either.

Creatively, do you want them to stick around?
RHIMES:
I do. It’ll depend on what the studio and the network decide to do with those actors, but I fully advocate to have them.

Kim Raver has already been upgraded to a series regular, but some are questioning Teddy’s future now that Owen has chosen Cristina.
RHIMES:
This whole idea that Teddy only exists [as part of a triangle is ludicrous]. Teddy is Cristina’s teacher. Derek would be dead if Cristina had not had Teddy around. That’s how I look at it. I will say it again, the studio and network have to renew everyone’s options, and they have not done so yet. But it is my intention that we will see Teddy next year.

When Owen chose Cristina, he really chose her, right?
RHIMES:
Yes. He definitely chose her.

So that triangle is, for all intents and purposes, over.
RHIMES:
That triangle is done.

But Cristina broke up with Owen in that episode.
RHIMES:
That is true.

So they’re not technically together.
RHIMES:
I tried really hard to get in an Owen-Cristina scene where he holds her after Derek survived. But all my [medical advisers] kept saying, “If Owen holds Cristina, she can no longer operate on Derek. She’s become unsterile.” There was a big fight about it and finally I had to go with “the look.” And I felt like Sandra [Oh] and Kevin [McKidd] adequately and brilliantly portrayed in “the look” that there was still something there.

You previously teased this episode as a game-changer. How has the game been changed?
RHIMES:
Here’s why I said that: When you face a situation like this — when the entire hospital has turned into a crime scene — everyone you know has faced life or death. It’s an incredibly traumatic event. Everything you knew, believed, felt, and required of the characters in terms of what their stories have been or what you believed about them no longer exists. Part of what’s interesting about next season is that we can start anywhere — in any emotional state — and almost anything can happen because we just came out of this. It’s not like tomorrow they come back being the exact same characters. They’re all sort of fundamentally changed.

Grey’s Anatomy Episode Recap: “Sanctuary/Death and All His Friends”

Grey’s Anatomy

In the two-hour season finale of Grey’s Anatomy, a gunman terrorizes Seattle Grace, killing surgeons and anyone else standing in his way of finding his one target: Derek Shepherd. Meanwhile, Meredith has some big news for Derek that may alter their future.

“For most people, the hospital is a scary place,” Meredith kicks off the episode by saying in voice-over.” A hostile place. A place where bad things happen,” she continues as we see montages of Alex and Lexie catching some sleep in the on-call room, a woman mourning over the death of a loved one, and Richard explaining to a waitress that he’s now been sober for six months.

“Most people would prefer church or school or home,” she says as we see Callie and Cristina both crying into their cereal over their failed relationships.

“But I grew up here,” she adds as she takes a pregnancy test. “While my mom was on rounds, I learned to read in the O.R. gallery, I played in the morgue, I colored with crayons on old E.R. charts. The hospital was my church, my school, my home. The hospital was my safe place, my sanctuary.”

And as she learns that she is pregnant, she says, “I love it here. Correction, I loved it here.” And we get our first glimpse of the shooter: Gary Clark, the man whose wife died in the hospital after Derek made the decision to pull the plug.

Meredith reveals the news of her pregnancy to Cristina. Not wanting to ruin the moment, Cristina says she’s fine about the Teddy-Owen situation and urges Mer to go reveal the big news to Derek. However, Der’s a bit flummoxed at the time with paperwork, so she wants to wait until that night. “There’s going to be a lot of dirty sex for you tonight,” she says.

In the shooter’s first failed attempt to find Derek, Alex shoots him down, telling him to find a nurse. We then zoom in on Arizona’s storyline, as one of her patients has appendicitis. She has plans to go into surgery later that day. Arizona then has her first run-in with Callie, who scorns her with the silent treatment. Speaking of problems, Owen is now practically shunned by both Cristina and Teddy. More on that later.

Elsewhere, we meet Bailey’s new patient, Mary (played by Mandy Moore), who will be unable to go into surgery yet. So unfortunately, she has to have a colostomy bag for another day. Since she’s not going to have surgery, her husband (played by Ryan Devlin) runs out to get her some real food.

Nurse Tyler tries to keep a woman out of her husband’s E.R. room. After getting into a car accident, the patient got out to give his information, but the guy shot him and drove off. (Who else is betting that Gary Clark was the guy?) Owen allows the woman to say goodbye to her husband, much to Teddy’s chagrin, who insists there isn’t enough time. When Cristina gets upset she won’t be joining in the surgery, Owen interjects, with Cristina snapping back.

Another failed attempt for Gary Clark to find the chief leads him into a storage room in the hospital. He asks Reed where Derek is, but she insists that she’s busy, even going so far as to say she’s a doctor, not a tour guide. Lesson of the day: Don’t be rude. Just as she snippily rattles on, Gary shoots her between the eyes.

Alex hears the gun shot and comes to see what’s going on. He takes a bullet in the side of the chest before Gary moves on. Alex crawls down the hall to the elevator, but he’s in no capacity to push a button and be discovered by anyone.

After Cristina gives Teddy an update during surgery, Owen offers for her to scrub in, but she declines. He leaves the surgery to confront her anger, and it escalates into a full-on breakup. “Do you love her or do you love me?” Oops, don’t take that long to answer Owen. “I’m done, we’re done,” Cris says before walking away.

Next lesson of the day: Watch where you’re walking. While April is writing in her notebook, she trips over Reed’s body, breaking her nose when she lands. But she notices there’s way too much blood to be from her nose, and then turns to see Reed’s dead body. She rushes to Derek’s office, spluttering on that she never knew there could be so much blood in a human body. She finally reveals the Reed was shot in the head, leading Derek to call the police and institute a lockdown on the hospital.

Gary’s next attempt to find Derek comes when he’s in the elevator with Cristina. Unknowingly, Cristina describes exactly where Derek’s office is…Oh Cristina, if you only knew. Thankfully, Gary is pleased by this information and doesn’t put a bullet in Cris.

At the coffee shop, Richard notices hordes of police cruisers heading in the hospital’s direction. Just as he runs out, we see Callie making her way to the pediatric wing. Perfect timing, they’re now on lockdown, which means Callie and Arizona will be stuck on the same floor for quite a while.

Derek makes his way to the O.R. and tasks Avery with breaking the news to Teddy and Owen about the lockdown, but Avery must wait until the patient is stable. Avery has a heartbreaking moment as his hand proceeds to shake in surgery, but he can’t reveal to Teddy and Owen why. Once it is revealed later, Owen and Teddy volunteer to take the patient through the dangerous halls, lest the patient die in the O.R.

As Mark tells Lexie he misses her, the gunman finally shoots in a public place, killing a nurse and sending everyone into a frenzy. Mark pulls Lexie over to the elevators to try to get her out of harm’s way, but when they push the button, the door opens to a passed out Alex.

As Richard tries to get past the police to get into the hospital, we zoom over to Mark and Lexie bringing Alex’s body into a conference room. Alex can’t be moved because he’s losing too much blood; there was no exit wound for his injury. “I’m going to kick that guy’s a– when I see him,” Alex says through gritted teeth.

Cristina and Meredith wander through the hospital (come on!) on their way to find Derek to finally tell him the good news. Mer says that Cris will be the godmother to their child, meaning if Mer and Der die, Cris has to take care of the baby. “I have to admit, I kind of hope you and Derek die just a little bit,” says Cris. Seriously? Derek finds them, pushing them into a storage closet before revealing that there’s a shooter loose in the hospital.

Mary can tell something is wrong with Dr. Bailey, though just as she’s questioning her, Dr. Percy comes rushing in. He reveals that there’s a shooter in the hospital and that he’s on their floor. Bailey peeks into the hallway to see Gary kill a security guard. She instructs Percy to hide in the bathroom and Mary to play dead as she jumps under the bed to hide.

Gary comes in their room and loses it further at the sight of Mary’s seemingly dead body. He hears Percy in the bathroom and asks him if he’s a surgeon. Next lesson of the day: Don’t say yes to that question! He shoots him in the stomach, and then pulls Bailey from beneath the bed. Thankfully Bailey learned today’s lesson and says she’s a nurse. Gary reloads his gun and apologizes for the mess before walking out.

As Lexie and Mark work on Alex, he screams out in pain. Mark tells her to shut him up, but her shushing doesn’t work. She finally sticks gauze in his mouth to damper the screams from attracting the gunman’s attention. Lexie later volunteers to get Alex blood for a transfusion, sending her into the dangerous hallways of Seattle Grace.

Back at the peds wing, Arizona calls Callie out for being rude to her. Callie retorts that she tried to be her friend, but she’d rather hate her guts instead. Arizona says she’s not the bad guy and that Callie may just be in love with love, and never actually loved her. They’re interrupted by Arizona’s appendicitis patient, who will need surgery immediately.

Bailey enlists Mary’s help with trying to treat Dr. Percy. Bailey suddenly notices water on the gauze she just put on the wound. “Dr. Bailey, you’re crying,” Mary says. (Chandra Wilson is amazing!) “We’re all going to fine,” Bailey says, but Percy pleads with her to be honest with him. She says he’s not going to die, but even I’m starting to get worried here.

Still being stuck in the storage room is about to be a problem for Cristina and Meredith, who says that she’s been suffering morning sickness around this same time every day. Cris sees the shooter going down the hallway and figures out that he’s hunting for Derek. Cue Mer puking.

The moment we’ve been dreading: Gary has finally found Derek on the cat walk. Derek tries to explain to him that everyone makes mistakes, that Derek knows Gary is actually a good man. All the while, Meredith and Cristina look on from across the hospital, with the latter holding Mer back.

Finally, Gary lowers his gun and we breathe a sigh of relief. Unfortunately, April has the worst timing ever as she runs out of Derek’s office, elated that he’s OK. Gary takes this opportunity to shoot Derek in the chest.

The second hour opens on April rattling off her life story in hopes that Gary will not shoot her as well. Gary tells her to run, leaving Derek to bleed out on the cat walk. The gunman also has to make his exit as he sees the SWAT team enter the hospital.

Meanwhile, Cristina tries to keep Meredith in the storage room, but you can’t keep a wife from her hubby. She forcefully knocks Cris out of the way before running into the dangerous halls.

Speaking of, Teddy notes that it’s ridiculous that she and Owen have survived wars and now they have to worry about a gunman in their hospital. She also says that Owen loves both she and Cristina and he must choose, but he declines, saying he’s choosing neither.

As Richard yells at the police for not having enough information, various 911 calls come in from Miranda, Owen, Mark, and Cristina, who exclaim that Derek has been shot. As Meredith is trying to keep Derek conscious, Cris says that Derek is going to need surgery. Enlisting April’s help, they move Derek down to the O.R.

Lexie comes face-to-face with Gary while getting blood and supplies for Alex. She’s one of the few doctors who actually knows who he is. He reveals that his original plan was to only kill Derek, Richard and Lexie. Before he can shoot her, a SWAT team member shoots him in the chest, beckoning Lexie to run. When she makes it back to the room, she blames herself for Alex being shot and says that she loves him, much to Mark’s dismay.

As Callie and Arizona treat the appendicitis patient, Gary enters the pediatrics wing. To stop Gary from harming anyone, Callie offers him bandages and asks him to leave. (Could anyone tell what Arizona was whispering while using her body as a shield over her patient?) Callie calms the patient by saying Arizona is the best doctor to fix her up, and the ice thaws between the two.

Derek promises Mer he’s not going to die, as Cris and April go on the hunt to find Teddy. After Cris calms April down, they find Jackson, who decides that Cristina will have to operate on Derek. Cris tells Mer she’s not allowed in the surgery, enlisting April’s help to keep Mer in check.

Delusional from his loss of blood, Alex thinks Lexie is actually Izzie and begs her not to leave him again. Thankfully, SWAT shows up and is able to clear them out of the hospital.

Owen and Teddy make it out of the hospital with their patient, just as Richard finds a way of getting back in. After being patted down, Teddy realizes defeat in her relationship with Owen, and urges him to go back into the hospital to get his girl.

Meredith tells April that she’s not allowed to cry over Derek, that it took her forever to find love and concede to opening her heart to someone. “Reed was my best friend. She died today,” April says as Mer takes her hand.

Back to Percy, who has no chance of living if he doesn’t get to an O.R.  Bailey and Mary drag him to the elevator, but SWAT has already shut it down. Bailey finally loses it, screaming to the heavens in frustration. She admits to Percy that he is going to die, but he won’t be alone. He asks that they tell Reed he was really in love with her and dies in Bailey’s arms soon thereafter.

Owen finally arrives to Cristina’s O.R., but asks Meredith to stay put. Gary is already in there with a gun to Cristina’s head, yelling for her to stop trying to save Derek. “This is the woman that I love,” Owen says. “You shoot her, you touch her, and I will kill you.”

“Shoot me,” yells Meredith, explaining that Lexie is her sister, Richard is the closest thing he has to family and Derek is her husband; if he wants to hurt any of them, he should shoot her. “I’m your eye for an eye,” she says. Before Gary can shoot, Cristina reveals that Meredith is pregnant. With his guard slightly down, Owen tries to jump in, but is shot in the chest.

Jackson and Cristina immediately stop working on Derek, with Jackson telling Gary that he’ll die in moments. Meredith cries out, but the heart monitor goes dead, along with Derek. Once Gary leaves, Jackson reattaches the monitor leads. Yay, Derek is not dead! Thankfully, neither is Owen. Cristina yells to Meredith to take Owen across the hall and save him.

As Meredith tries to save Owen, she suddenly has a miscarriage, but can’t let that stand in the way of her mission. It’s so tragic, but at least now Meredith knows she wants to have a child, so I have a feeling we’ll be seeing much more of that next season.

Richard roams the halls, finally coming face-to-face with Gary Clark. Apparently, in Seattle you can buy a gun really easily, Gary explains. He bought a ton of ammunition in preparation of coming there, but couldn’t fit it all because he wanted to bring his flask, which leaves him with only one bullet left.

Gary’s choice is to either kill himself or kill Richard, who declines to take a drink from Gary’s flask before pouring it out. “What’s it going to be Mr. Clark. Me or You?” Richard ponders, explaining that Gary’s options are really only going to prison or living in the afterlife with his wife. “I’ve lived,” Richard pushes, saying that death would just be “the end of a beautiful journey.” We don’t quite get to see the ending, but Gary is out of the picture.

At the end of the episode, we learn that Alex is fine, with Lexie clearly choosing him over Mark. The same can’t initially be said for Derek, who codes on the table. Mary finally reunites with her husband, as Bailey tries to hunt down Dr. Reed and deliver Percy’s final message. Arizona says to Callie that they’ll have tons of kids; all she wants to do is be with her.

Cristina Yang for the win: She saves Derek’s life, as Mer breathes a sigh of relief. The episode closes on Meredith throwing her pregnancy test in the trash before going to see her husband.

Question: All this vague “a crisis like no other” talk about the Grey’s Anatomy finale is killing me. And you don’t wanna be responsible for my death. Seattle Grace scoop, STAT.
Ausiello:
Would it qualify as putting you on life support if I got series creator Shonda Rhimes to tell you a bit about the two-hour season-ender? Let’s find out. “The theme of the first hour is sanctuary, which sort of uses the idea that the hospital is our characters’ safest place and our safest place as viewers,” she says. “[Then we use] the hour to slowly turn that on its head [so] that by the end, the hospital is definitely kind of the least safe place in the world.” Yikes! “The second hour,” she continues, “is about choices, and we get to watch our characters make big ones. Lexie chooses between Mark and Alex. Owen chooses between Teddy and Cristina. Bailey faces the hardest medical choice that a doctor has to make. And the other choice that’s being made is Callie and Arizona, and whether or not they’re going to be together or not. It IS going to come down to the baby thing.” You still with us, Andy? Hello? Bueller? Someone call 911!

Question: Please tell me we will actually get to see a Meredith story line on Grey’s Anatomy by the end of the season.
Ausiello:
Meredith is going to have a lot going on in the finale. Trust me.

Grey’s Anatomy: Will Meredith Go All Dark and Twisty Again?

Source: TV Guide

Grey’s Anatomy

After six seasons of Grey’s Anatomy (Thursdays, 9/8c on ABC), Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) finally seems happy. From exchanging Post-it vows with Derek (Patrick Dempsey) to romping in McDreamy’s office, Mer has been significantly less dark and twisty than the Dr. Grey we met on her first day at Seattle Grace.

And her happiness isn’t going to be torn away just to stir up some conflict, executive producer Shonda Rhimes says.

Grey’s exclusive: “There is absolutely hope for Cristina and Owen,” says Shonda Rhimes

“I am not trying to shake up whether or not Meredith is happy,” Rhimes says. That’s not to say Mer won’t go through some drama in the finale, which Rhimes describes as “very different” from the five previous season-enders. The first hour alone will apparently leave your jaw on the floor.

“What’s really beautiful to me about the finale is that Meredith Grey is a grown-up,” continues Rhimes. “It was a journey that I wasn’t even sure she was going to be able to make successfully. As a character, she’s really grown into being a very changed woman, which I think is fantastic.”

Exclusive: Mandy Moore to guest-star in Grey’s Anatomy finale

As for whether a McBaby is in the future, Rhimes coyly replies: “I don’t know. Anything is possible.”

Do you want to see Mer and Der have McBabies?

I’m tired of Callie and Arizona fighting on Grey’s Anatomy. Is there happiness ahead for them?
ADAM: The people behind the show are big fans of the Calzona pairing and are committed to seeing the couple through their differences over having a baby. But don’t take my word for it. “I really do feel like Callie and Arizona are made for each other,” creator Shonda Rhimes tells us. “They’re one of those couples that you adore seeing together, and when they’re in pain, you’re in pain. … So I think that there’s hope.” Source: TV Guide

This Just In: Plot of top-secret ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ finale revealed!

(Michael Ausiello)

greys-anatomy-blanketImage Credit: Ron Tom/ABCSort of. ABC just released the loglines for Grey’s Anatomy‘s two-hour finale on May 20, and, unlike the ultra spoilery synopses for Private Practice, Brothers & Sisters, and Desperate Housewives that preceded it, this one leaves a lot to the imagination. That said, there is one curiously cryptic scoopbit embedded in the otherwise vague tease…

“In the first hour of the two-hour season six finale, ‘Sanctuary,’ Seattle Grace Hospital is hit with a crisis like no other in its history on Grey’s Anatomy. In the second hour of the finale, ‘Death and All His Friends,’ Cristina and Meredith’s surgical skills are put to the ultimate test.” Call me crazy, but I’m betting there’s a connection between hour 1’s “crisis” and the title of the hour 2. Thoughts?!

Question: I realize Katherine Heigl isn’t returning, but will Grey’s Anatomy find a way to give Alex closure about Izzie? Ausiello: Not on Shonda Rhimes’ watch. The boss lady tells me she has no plans to tie up the loose ends of the Alex-Izzie love story. “It’s going to linger,” she says. “And I actually feel good about it lingering because [it means] Alex is left with unfinished business. And that’s going to be very interesting for his character.”

Question: That Grey’s Anatomy teaser you posted has me worried that there will be multiple deaths in the supposedly game-changing season finale. Can you please put my mind at ease? Ausiello: I can’t. But I think Shonda Rhimes can. “The events of the finale itself change the game,” she says. “Whether anyone lives or anyone dies is not really necessarily the point of it.” Feel better? No? I gots nothin’ else.

Question: Are Callie and Arizona going to get through their baby issue on Grey’s Anatomy? Ausiello: It sounds like Shonda Rhimes wants them to, which probably bodes well. “They’re breaking my heart right now with their I want to have a baby, I don’t want to have a baby war, because I’ve actually known people who go through this and it’s never pretty,” she says. “But I like them together and I want to see them together.”

Can you tell us who the big breakup and hookup is on Grey’s Anatomy?
The breakup is, sadly, the one you’re all assuming. The hookup is Sloane and Reed, and Lexie is not going to hide her disapproval from Reed, taking little jabs at her in front of patients. Clearly, Lexie is not over Steamy. Grey’s returns this Thursday so you can start seeing it all unfold.

Grey’s Anatomy – First look at Demi Lovato

She’s been practically clawing her eyes out to meet the cast of her favorite show, and now Demi Lovato’s got her chance. When the 17-year-old Sonny With a Chance star arrived on the Grey’s Anatomy set to shoot her May 13 guest appearance, “The first two actors I met were Justin Chambers and Jessica Capshaw, and I was like, ‘There’s Karev and Arizona!’ Then I met Patrick Dempsey.” On a tour of the hospital set, she picked up a patient’s chart to pretend she was making rounds. But Demi’s not playing a new med student; she’ll be a frightened patient named Hayley, who might suffer from schizophrenia (see the claw marks in this exclusive first-look photo).

A new fan to Grey’s, Lovato began catching up on the series during breaks on the set of Camp Rock: The Final Jam, a Disney Channel TV-movie sequel airing in July, which teams her up again with real-life beau Joe Jonas. “Grey’s is a dream role for her,” says Joe, though he prefers Top Chef over medical dramas. “It’s great people are going to see her do different things. I’m really proud of her.”

The episode will also showcase just how good a doctor Karev has become. “Alex has definitely worked on his bedside manner,” says Justin, whose character will continue to get a workout between the sheets with Lexie (Chyler Leigh), now that he’s divorcing Izzie (Katherine Heigl).

Grey’s Anatomy – Spoiler Chat – E! Online – 4-19-2010

Can you give us a hint as to who breaks up and who hooks up on Grey’s Anatomy?
Well, for the split, I think it’s pretty clear from Patrick Dempsey that it’s not Meredith and Derek. And I have an exclusive interview with Kevin McKidd I’ll be posting before the next new episode (next Thursday), and it should be pretty obvious as to whether it’s Cristina and Owen. As for the hookup, I already revealed one of the parties is McSteamy, and let’s just say that Lexie is going to have some serious issues with his new, stinky little ho—and you NBC fans will get the stinky reference! The good thing is that Lexie has such a problem with this, it’s clear she still has deep feelings for Sloane, and I’d put a whole wad of money (like, literally, hundreds…of pennies!) on them getting back together at some point.

I hope Grey’s Anatomy keeps getting better as the season goes on. Will it?
Life’s going to get a little less peachy for Chief Derek when he’s forced to respond to a wrongful death suit against him. And taking a note from the Dunder Mifflin handbook, Seattle Grace is about to enroll in sensitivity training after making light of a 700-pound patient they must work on. Where’s Michael Scott and a “that’s what she said” when you need one?

Grey’s Anatomy – Latest from Ausiello – 14th April 2010

Question: Shonda Rhimes said she was done playing with the on-again/off-again relationship between Meredith and Derek on Grey’s Anatomy, but all this “game-changing” finale talk has me worried she’s going to pull them apart. What can you tell me?
Ausiello: I can tell you to relax. Better yet, Rhimes can tell you herself: “[Der-Mer] are pretty solid going into the finale,” she assures. “For once, Meredith is the mother hen in the group, as opposed to being the one who’s messed up.”

Question: Scoop on Owen/Cristina on Grey’s Anatomy? Is Teddy out of the picture for good?
Ausiello: Teddy may be the least of their problems. Word is someone else is going to complicate their already-troubled romance, and the identity of that person is…revealed in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on sale Thursday!

Bad news, Little Grey and Mark fans. McSteamy is thisclose to hooking up with yet another Seattle Grace lady. Your hint? It’s not Teddy (Kim Raver). Guesses? It seems McSteamy is getting back to his McSlutty ways, and you Lexie-Mark fans aren’t gonna like it one bit—and neither is she, I’m sure!

Lost Season 6 Premiere Episode Recap: “LA X (Parts I and II)”

Matthew Fox and Terry O’Quinn

What’s old is new again: Tuesday’s episode of Lost answered several questions, but it also raised several others. We learned what happened when Juliet bashed Jughead with such purpose, who’s still alive, who died and who — spoiler alert! — rose from the dead. We finally got confirmation on those rumors that Season 6 would show us what happened if Oceanic 815 landed safely in Los Angeles. We even got to see a glimpse of the long-missing Claire. But we also met some new characters, whose roles in the big picture are intriguing, but are, naturally, as yet unclear. It’s a heady brew, as usual, and I’m already half in the bag….read more

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.

Latest from Kristin – 3rd Feb

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.

Latest from Kristin – 2nd Feb

Kristin’s Red Carpet Interviews from the Premiere Party.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VotWEhZvEFs

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.
Enjoy.

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.

TVSquad summarized various spoilers from the two sources: The scenes being filmed at what is supposed to be LAX International Arrivals feature Jack in a suit, a very pregnant Claire, Kate and Dr. Arzt, amongst others. In the third episode, titled “What Kate Does,” Kate and Claire share a cab and their destination is the house of the couple who are set to adopt Aaron.

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.

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.

Set report spoilers from Celestial Beauty: This is what I managed to find out on the set I visiting during the filming at the High School last week. You already have a few bits of this but here goes. 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

[Carlton] Cuse tweeted a clue for Lost fans to figure out. “Damon and I are die hard fans of this impeckable actor who keeps the barr high and just signed to guest star on the show. Life is good!” The misspellings were clues leading to the name… William Atherton. 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.

New Promo of 'House M.D.' Season 6See larger image One of the first promos of FOX’s “” has been shared, bearing the tagline “What happens when the doctor becomes the patient?”. The sixth season of the medical drama will pick up where the season 5 finale left off, with House’s delusion coming to a serious level. Driven by Wilson, House voluntarily admits himself to Mayfield Psychiatric Hospital. In the promo, House is seen wandering, sleeping restlessly, and struggling while being escorted back to the building. Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda has been cast as House’s psych hospital roommate for at least two episodes. “House M.D.” is scheduled to return with new episodes on September 21. The show receives the nomination of Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series through and Best Drama Series at the upcoming 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Winners are announced on September 20 through a gala aired live on CBS.

House (Fox) James Earl Jones has signed on to guest star in an upcoming episode this fall. He will play an African dictator who becomes a patient at Princeton-Plainsboro.

Season Six Secrets

When we last saw Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie), he was walking into a mental institution and wrapping his head around his hallucination of having sex with Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein).

Sure, we were mad at first for the big sex scene fake-out, but we were happy to learn at last night’s House event at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills that a true Huddy hookup might just be in store for season three, which starts shooting very soon and hits Fox on Sept. 21.

House executive producers Katie Jacobs and David Shore, along with Hugh, Lisa and Omar Epps filled us in on House’s mental state, Huddy’s romantic state and the state of things at Princeton-Plainsboro…

House Has Gone Crazy: “This season opener is really going to begin shortly after those doors close behind him. We’re going to wake up there and going to cover—storytelling wise in two hours—two to three months and that journey of rehabilitation that House feels he may or may not need, that he does need,” says Katie. “It’s not a full-on rehabilitation. House won’t be perfect in any way. I describe it as if there’s a hole in his heart, maybe he’ll leave with one more piece, but the House is still there.” Don’t expect the whole season to take place in the mental institute though: “It’s not going to be that much, but that two-hour premiere is basically exclusively there,” adds David.

Paging Dr. Nolan: Who has the lucky job of diagnosing one of the most famous diagnosticians in the world? That job is left up to Dr. Nolan, played by Andre Braugher, whom you may remember from Gideon’s Crossing. Katie describes the surely to butt heads pair: “House’s version of how well he needs to be to go back to work and Nolan’s version of how well he needs to be to go back to work is very different. You can check yourself in voluntarily, and you can leave voluntarily, but whether or not he’s going to be permitted to practice medicine is another story. Before he is going to be allowed to practice medicine, Dr. Nolan needs to make sure House is on much sturdier ground than at the end of the season.”

Hugh on Playing Crazy: Hop on the crazy boat, because we’re in for quite a storm. Says Hugh, “House’s sickness is an indispensable part of his skill, possibly his intellect, and if not his intellect, than his identity. All of us fear change because we fear even the things we dislike in our lives, we fear that they are nonetheless part of us, and if we surrender them then we will become some how less.” For his time in the mental hospital, Hugh has shaved his head, saying “I have a slightly institutional look.” However, being institutionalized is not all serious though, “There is just a small musical element to it. I’m completely out of my depth; I should not be doing it, but life is about risks!” jokes Hugh.

When the Doctor’s Away, the Kids Will Play: When it comes to who’s going to be in charge with House missing in action, Omar says that Foreman is stepping into the foreground: “That’s sort of a natural progression. However, even in a mental institute, I would imagine House would still be in charge.” Unfortunately, with every doctor trying to be the boss, it may not be good for Foreman and Thirteen (Olivia Wilde). “I think the stress of trying to take over the team is obviously going to have a strain on their relationship.” Even if Foreman takes the lead, it’s not going to be easy. Omar adds, “It’s going to have a tremendous effect [with House gone]. Everyone is going to be second-guessing themselves. In that sense, House is a crutch for them. When all else fails, just go to him and he’ll have the answers. The reality is, the other doctors are not willing to take the risks that he takes.” Finally, don’t expect House to waltz back into Princeton-Plainsboro ready to take over again: “You don’t emerge from a psychiatric hospital and just get your medical license back all that easy. That differential diagnosis division is still going to be functioning, but whether he’s going to be at the head of it initially or not, that’s the question,” says Katie. Lisa Edelstein, Hugh Laurie, House Adam Taylor/FOX


Once He’s Healed:
Fans are still reeling over the imagined coupling of House and Cuddy, but Lisa tells us, “I loved the way they handled it because for one thing, it means they can still have sex. Because they haven’t done it yet. In another way it shows what he wishes he had, which includes an intimate relationship with her, wanting to live with her and wanting to be off drugs. I think we learn a lot about him and we still have the opportunity of exploring it, because it hasn’t been explored even though we got to shoot that sexy scene.” Katie seconds that notion, “I think all those emotions, sparks, difficulties and the push and pull is still there. I think the only reason why he hallucinated that hallucination with someone he works with is because somewhere that’s in his mind.” Source: E!Online

‘House’ season 6 video, get your first look

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

House” fans who tuned into tonight’s MLB All-Star Game got a special treat: the brand spanking new trailer for season six, complete with scenes from the season premiere. No worries if you missed it, we’ve got you covered. The quality of our video is ghetto at best, but a ghetto glimpse at House inside the psychiatric facility is better than nothing, no?

Will House stop being crazy? “No,” says Robert Sean Leonard. “It would be like Quincy suddenly getting nice and loving examining dead bodies. There are certain things that are just givens about the show, and one is the general makeup of House’s attitude and personality. He may stop hallucinating but he’d never stop being sarcastic.” Adds series creator David Shore: “It depends on how we define better. That is the question. How sick is he? Does House want to get better? Can he get better? And how much better? And how much will the team be told and how will the dynamic shift with House away? Those are the questions we are going to deal with in the first bunch of episodes, and perhaps even the whole season to a certain extent.” (Michael Ausiello)

Executive producer David Shore talks about how is in charge while House is gone, “We are going to have some fun with who is going to be running the diagnostics department. We’re not bringing in anyone new right now, so it’s going to be somebody you know.” (Watch With Kristin)

Will we ever know for sure if Cuddy realizes what House imagined happened between them? Please reassure us that they won’t drop this sizzling hot storyline! As the cast teased last week, a lot of this season has to do with House (Hugh Laurie) working his way back to sanity and realizing his feelings for Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein). To answer your question specifically, David Shore says, “I think she does know. Actually, we had some discussion about it. I think him standing on the balcony, screaming out ‘I slept with Lisa Cuddy!’ [gave it away].” Source: Kristin on E!Online

I’d like to know if we’ll see more of Cuddy as a mom in the future on House. I like the idea of her being a working mom; she could be such a good role model for women if they’d convey this storyline properly. We asked Lisa Edelstein if she wants to see that as well, but she’s more interested in the Huddy relationship than keeping up with Cuddy’s baby. Lisa tells us, “I’m eager to see what they do with the House and Cuddy storyline. The baby is fine, but I don’t think it’s really about that. I’m sure it will be woven through, but it grounds her to have a child. I think it gives her more of a life than she had. But ultimately it’s not about that, the show is not about that. The show is about the hospital and the inner relationships at the hospital.” Source: Kristin on E!Online

Will Thirteen and Taub be leaving at the end of this season? They will have completed their three-year fellowships by then. Will Chase and Cameron come back, or will there be new fellows? House executive producer David Shore says it’s too early in the season to know if they’re going to be introducing new characters. He says, “We don’t have any plans on that. As we get closer to the end of the year we might, but I don’t think we’ve mined everything we can with the six fellows we’ve had there.” Source: Kristin on E!Online

Lisa Edelstein thinks House & Cuddy are still headed for sex

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

The Paley Center for Media hosted a “House” panel last night, during which a great deal of info regarding the upcoming fall season slipped out. The highlights? The story will pretty much pick right back up where it left off in the finale, with House being admitted to a mental institution after hallucinating a sexual encounter with Cuddy. The season premiere will cover the three month span that House is in rehab. While there, House (who’ll be sporting a shaved head, fyi) will be spending a lot of one-on-one time with a doctor by the name of Nolan (“Gideon’s Crossing”‘s Andre Braugher). Of course, House doesn’t feel he needs to be locked up and in therapy, but he needs Dr. Nolan’s seal of approval if he ever wants to practice medicine again, so there will be some friction no doubt… hope Nolan’s not gonna be another Officer Twitter-type. The team back at Princeton Plainsboro is going to go a little crazy without House around to check their work. Thankfully, though, our guy won’t be gone for long. He will return to the hospital and, ultimately, have to deal with why he was hallucinating about Huddy sex. Said Lisa Edelstein (Cuddy), “I loved [the hallucination storyline], it means they can still have sex because they haven’t done it yet! But [the hallucination] shows what he wishes he had, wanting an intimate relationship with her and wanting to be off drugs.” So, yeah, thoughts? Do you agree?

The two-hour One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest-inspired season premiere will feature only two of the show’s main players: House and Wilson. Everyone else will show up the following week. (Michael Ausiello)

Desperate Housewives – Latest from TV Guide Magazine – 1st Feb 2010

Desperate Housewives offers a girl-girl liplock in March between cuckoo Katherine (Dana Delany) and Susan’s stripper friend, Robin, played by Dexter’s Julie Benz. “Everyone assumed I was going to come in and break up someone’s marriage, but there’s a whole different twist,” says Julie, who appreciates Dana smelling “very pretty” and not having facial hair like her last on-screen lover, Michael C. Hall.

“This kiss comes out of a funny moment where we’re trying to ditch some guys,” says Julie. But something very real develops, which is exciting for Dana. “I guessed it,” she says. “I asked, ‘Am I becoming a man?’ And [creator] Marc Cherry said, ‘Close.’” Dana compares Katherine’s realization to recently un-closeted actress Meredith Baxter. “For a woman in her fifties to make this announcement to her community is huge,” says Dana. “I hope it sticks.”

Julie and Dana became friends years ago when they costarred in a failed “Scarface”-type TV pilot. So how long will these naughty girls play house? “I’m now up to four episodes, but they have an option for more,” says Julie. “I’m bribing the writers with cupcakes.”

Desperate Housewives – Casting News from TV Guide Magazine

As Desperate Housewives prepares to wrap up the Angie Bolen murder mystery, and most likely
send Drea de Mateo packing after failing to click in the neighborhood, the ABC show is looking to cast Angie’s mother, described as a tough lady in her 50’s – 60’s who fights to protect her family.
Interestingly, the character’s name (for now) is Patty, which also happens to be the name of the actress the show had first hoped to cast for this role. Any idea whom I’m talking about?
Additionally, the show is searching for a hot little Russian number to play the role of Irena, a 25-year-old gold-digger who set her sights on one of the neighborhood boys. A Scavo twin perhaps? Or maybe the much sought-after Danny Bolen?
Not sure Patty would let Irena anywhere near her grandson.

6-1 “Nice is Different Than Good” Season premiere Sunday, September 27

  • Did Mike marry Katherine or Susan? You’ll learn the answer in the sixth season premiere! Both Susan and Katherine believe they’re going to be the bride, but this isn’t “Big Love”, so Mike will have to choose!
  • We meet Angie Bolen, (Drea de Matteo), her husband Nick (Jeffrey Nordling), and their nineteen year old son Danny (Beau Mirchoff). The Bolens have moved around a lot, but hope to settle down on Wisteria Lane now that real estate agent Lee has sold them a house there. And, yes, they have a secret.
  • Bree and Karl haven’t had sex yet, and Karl (Richard Burgi) suspects Bree’s not ready to take that step.
  • Lynette’s ambivalent about her pregnancy, and makes a happily pregnant woman cry by telling her about the perils of parenting.
  • Gaby’s niece Ana goes to a club.
  • We strongly suspect the episode ends with Julie being strangled.

6-2 “Being Alive” Sunday, October 4

  • We’ll meet a surly old man named Roy (Orson Bean). He’s a steak salesman, and Mrs. McCluskey’s love interest! Before he can tell McCluskey he loves her, they discover Julie’s unconscious body in the bushes. Mrs. McCluskey considers teling the police she saw Danny fighting with Julie.
  • At the hospital, Katherine stops the doctor from running a test with radiation on Julie by revealing that Julie may be pregnant. Susan didn’t know this info. When Julie briefly wakes, she sees or hears something that Angie (Drea de Matteo) wishes she hadn’t seen. She clearly hopes Julie will think she was dreaming, but the doctor doesn’t think that’s likely.
  • The police want to question Ana about Danny, and Gaby learns Ana snuck out to hang out with him at the park. Look for the police to question Danny as well.

6-3 Sunday, October 11

  • Jesse Metcalfe returns as Gabrielle’s former lover, John Rowland, who’s now divorced. Look for Ana to take an interest in seducing John. (Because no season of DH is complete without some statutory rape!) Carlos, Lynette, and Tom are at a restaurant together when Gabrielle arrives, possibly with John.
  • Danny was released from custody because there wasn’t enough evidence against him–but that doesn’t mean Susan’s about to let it go.
  • Bree reacts badly when Karl shows up with a date, but she can’t say anything, as she’s with Orson.

6-4 Sunday, October 18

  • Jesse Metcalfe makes another appearance as John.
  • Lynette learns Tom got a bad grade; Lynette leaves Penny with Tom at school.
  • Karl sends Bree a sexy text message; Look for our beloved caterers Bree and Katherine to cause a scene during a wedding they’re catering, as Katherine becomes emotional over a cake.

6-5

  • Gabrielle makes a possible enemy, which could be bad for Carlos as Carlos hopes to merge his company with the woman’s husband’s company. Carlos, Gaby, and the couple have dinner together.
  • Bree’s still cheating with Karl in a motel room. But will comments from the maid cause her to rethink the affair?

6-6

  • Lynette arrives home to find Tom with some of his (younger) fellow college students. Later, she goes to a frat party to find Tom. She doesn’t find him, but does learn Tom’s secret: he’s cheating in school!
  • Orson learns Bree lied about where a cameo pin came from. Will this lead him towards learning the truth about his wife’s affair?
  • When one of the Solis children swears at school, the principal wants the child pulled from the Thanksgiving pageant. Gabrielle is against this.

6-10

As Orson finally learns about Bree’s affair with Karl, the storyline climaxes with a major cliffhanger. (Traditionally, episode 10 is the last episode of the calendar year, so whatever the cliffhanger ends up being, don’t expect an answer til 2010.

Rumors

We’re aware of at least 4 rumors about actors from the UK who are said to be up for roles on DH. We’re not going to report them all. Frankly, if we had a dime for every British actor who’s been reported to be close to getting a role on this show, we’d be rich!

Episode 6.05
Airdate : Sunday, October 25th

Mackenzie Brooke Smith as Rhiannon Harper

Marc Cherry was asked if he will release Neal McDonough’s Dave from the loony bin and he responded: “Not this season.” (Michael Ausiello)

“I don’t see Drea [de Matteo] as a replacement for Nicolette [Sheridan],” creator Marc Cherry says. “Her character is more a replacement for Neal [McDonough] in that she’s [the focus] of the new mystery.” Cherry goes on to describe Drea’s matriarch, Angie Bolen, as “a very loving but tough Italian woman who comes [to Wisteria Lane] with her husband and her kid. They’re running from something. We understand through her actions in the first couple of episodes that she’s a smart woman who will do what she has to to protect her family.” (Michael Ausiello)

Orson won’t catch on to his wife’s affair — at least not at first. “We’re going to play him just not understanding what’s going on,” explains creator Marc Cherry. “He finally gets wind of it and it’ll build to a shocking conclusion in our 10th episode. We’ve got an interesting cliffhanger involving the threesome.” (Michael Ausiello)

Marc Cherry worked out a “situation with Shawn Pyfrom that both grants the actor’s wish to pursue other projects and ensures that Andrew doesn’t vanish without a trace. It’s basically called being bumped to recurring. “He wanted more freedom [so] we [hammered out] a smaller episode order with him,” he says. “I don’t ever want to say goodbye to him completely. He’s a beloved figure around here.” (Michael Ausiello)

Desperate Housewives – Maiara Walsh Interview

Don’t expect any news in this interview:

Q: How did the role of Ana Solis come to you?

Maiara: “I got a call to audition for Desperate Housewives and I went in and I believe I had about 3 auditions. I was guaranteed an episode in the season finale and they had a month to decide whether to pick me up for a series regular — and they did. Needless to say, I was very, very excited.”

Q: Tell us about your character…

Maiara: “She is a bit of a wild child. She and Gaby butt heads and will continue to butt heads. She’s been bounced around from relative to relative. Her mom is in prison and she hasn’t seen her dad since she was 3, so she definitely has some issues. She’s decided that she is going to make things happen for herself and she’ll do whatever it takes to get what she wants. I think one of the reasons she and Gaby butt heads so much is because they’re so similar.”

Q: What can you tell us about season 6 of Desperate Housewives?

Maiara: “Ana is going to continue testing Gaby’s patience by acting up and misbehaving. In the first episode she has this really funny scene with Gaby in a club and she does something she’s never done before… I can’t tell you what it is, but it’s really funny. She’s a young girl who likes boys, so I think there will be some love mysteries and triangles.”

Q: Which cast members do you hang out with?

Maiara: “Right now, most of my scenes are with Eva. It’s been real nice getting to know her and bond with her. I think it’s important to have that connection with the people you work with or you’re going to show up for work miserable everyday. I got to know the Scavo twins when I was shooting the season finale and they were fun.”

Desperate Housewives: Who’s Under the Veil?

Source: E!Online

James Denton, Desperate Housewives ABC/RON TOM

The news of Andrea Bowen returning to Desperate Housewives for the season-six premiere is sparking debate that her homecoming means Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher) is at the altar, behind the veil and getting married to Mike Delfino (James Denton). Spoiler Alert: We’re giving you every chance not to peek inside at the evidence we’ve compiled because all signs point to one Wisteria Lane resident over the others. Here are the five reasons to support who we think is under the veil… Without dissing Dana Delany (Katherine Mayfair), we have a gut feeling that Susan is actually the blushing bride-to-be. The facts are these:

  1. Andrea Bowen is returning as Julie Mayer in a regular capacity this season. Mike always treated her like his own daughter while dating her mom, and she’d need to be back to be a bridesmaid in the wedding.
  2. Karl Mayer (Richard Burgi), Susan’s ex-husband, was at the wedding (keep your eyes peeled on the 40-second mark). He has no ties to Katherine and he despises Mike. If it isn’t Susan, why would he be there?
  3. The season finale script reads “The family is reunited” when Susan and Mike embraced after their near-death experience. Reunited and it feels so good, no?
  4. Because executive producer Marc Cherry wants them together. Regarding the Mike and Susan relationship, Cherry said back at the Paley Festival: “The idea is, we’ll get back there. I don’t know when. If ABC makes a deal with all of us, it looks like we have a few years to play this out, so I would imagine at some point in time Susan and Mike will find their way back in each other’s universe.” We think it’s about time, don’t you?
  5. Finally, we here at WWK simply want it to be Susan because we’re sick of the merry-go-round of keeping them apart.

BREAKING : She’s the Bride…?!

So when season 5 of Desperate Housewives ended, they were all attending Mike Delfino’s wedding to a mystery bride. So we were left to spend the summer wondering if it was ex-wife Susan Mayer or his fiancee Katherine Mayfair? Well one of my readers Sandy was taking one of those tours of Universal Studios, where the show tapes, and guess who she saw in a wedding dress? By the looks of the picture she took, I think we know who the new Mrs Delfino is… So if you want to know who she is, then… Looks like Dana Delany is a housewife once again. I mean she looks to be wearing the same dress that the woman was wearing when she married him, but the one difference is her hair down instead of up. Maybe production messed up on that one? So do you think she is the bride or there was second wedding and she is marrying someone else? Source: SeriouslyOMG

November Sweeps News : Mary Alice’s Appearance

Marc Cherry stated in an episode of the online series Ask Desperate Housewives that the November sweeps episode of season six will jump back in time to when Mary Alice was alive, and she will physically appear in the whole episode. This follows the pattern of Desperate Housewives having a very special episode during November sweeps, Such as season three’s “Bang”, season four’s “Something’s Coming”, and season five’s “City on Fire”. Obviously, those episodes involve a: hostage situation, tornado, and fire. The pattern will be broken by this episode.

General Spoilers

  • DH has added a new family to Wisteria Lane to play a role in the season’s new mystery. The matriarch of the family will be played by Drea de Matteo, while her landscape designer husband and tightly wound son will be played by Jeffrey Nordling and Beau Mirchoff respectively. The family will be living in the house probably best known as Mary Alice’s former home; Mike lived there last season prior to moving in with Katherine.
  • Julie (Andrea Bowen) also returns as a series regular and will be involved with the mystery as well.
  • The show’s casting a college student who will be a recurring character throughout the season, but he may not have a huge presence in many episodes.
  • Shawn Pyfrom (Andrew) is not returning as a series regular, but expect him to make some guest appearances.
  • The woman Mike doesn’t marry has a breakdown. Last season, Teri Hatcher pitched the idea that she wanted Susan to have a nervous breakdown. It’s entirely possible that the writers took Teri’s idea and gave it to Katherine, but if we were placing a bet, we’d say Katherine’s marrying Mike and Susan’s having a breakdown.
  • Karl (Richard Burgi) will be back for many episodes as Bree’s romance with Karl continues. Bree turns to an old friend who’s been out of the picture.
  • Maiara Walsh will be a series regular as Gabrielle’s niece Ana. Look for her to complicate Gabrielle’s life. Jesse Metcalfe will appear in several episodes as John, though how many episodes he will be in remains uncertain at this time.
  • Although Mike marries someone, the Susan/Mike/Katherine triangle will continue.
  • Lynette’s unexpected pregnancy tests her family. Source: DH tripod

Jesse Metcalfe’s John can become a regular!

After two years away from Wisteria Lane, Jesse Metcalfe will be going back to his roots as Desperate Housewives‘ sexy gardener John Rowland. “He’ll be on for six to eight episodes, with the possibility of coming back full-time,” an insider on the ABC hit tells OK!. Story lines are still in development, but the source has some good news to confirm: “He’ll have a lot of shirtless scenes.”

Vitale’s moving to… The family will be living in the house probably best known as Mary Alice’s former home; Mike lived there last season prior to moving in with Katherine. Source: DH tripod

Kyle MacLachlan is returning next season. And he’ll remain a series regular. (Michael Ausiello)

Lynette’s pregnancy will be a central issue this season, a mole tells me, and it explains why Tom will probably not be playing Hacky Sack on the quad any time soon (was that just me?). Instead, the Scavos’ twist of fate will position him to be among the first of the show’s cast to interact with a colorful new family moving to Wisteria Lane. Imagine Adriana pronouncing the word “hardwood,” and you’re halfway there. (TV Guide)

Any hint as to who was under the veil on the season finale of Desperate Housewives? A source close to the Desperate Housewives set tells us neither Teri Hatcher nor Dana Delany were actually at the altar, just to make sure no one would be able to spill the season-five cliffhanger. However, the source did spill a juicy tidbit that may be a clue as to who the new happy couple is: Following the car accident in the season finale, where Susan and Mike (James Denton) embraced, the script read, “The family is reunited.” Could that point to Susan being under the veil? Discuss in the comments! Source: E!Online

Jesse Metcalfe to Return

Gabrielle’s gardener boy-toy from Desperate Housewives’ first season, John Rowland (Jesse Metcalfe), will be back on Wisteria Lane in the third and fourth episodes of Season 6. Last seen in 2007, John had married the daughter of a wealthy businessman. “Now he’s divorced and doing well in a different industry,” says creator Marc Cherry. Gaby’s husband, Carlos, will be none-too-pleased to learn that John is single again. But this time it’s not necessarily Gaby whom Carlos has to worry about, but his troublemaking niece, Ana (Maiara Walsh). Per Cherry, “When Ana finds out that Gabrielle had an affair with John, she sets her sights on him, which upsets Gabrielle.” Juicy! Source: TV Guide Magazine

TV Geometry: Complete the Desperate Housewives Love Triangle

The latest Desperate Housewives news has us in the mood for a threesome. The facts are these: Drea de Matteo’s character will have a 19-year-old son who we hear is a bit of a lady-killer. Maiara Walsh, who plays Gaby’s headstrong niece, has been promoted to be a series regular. ABC has announced that Andrea Bowen, Susan’s eye-rolling daughter, Julie, will return to the show for the Season 6 premiere. (TVGuide.com has confirmed that her stay on Wisteria Lane will be significantly longer.) Isn’t it time we got these crazy kids together? So let’s cast the Italian Stallion already, shall we?….read more

Andrea Bowen has signed on to reprise her role as Susan’s daughter, Julie. Bowen is set to appear in the September 27 season premiere. Insiders say that she is returning as a series regular. Bowen was last seen in the November 16 episode, in which Julie visited her mom (Teri Hatcher), bringing along her much older boyfriend Lloyd (Steven Weber). Julie’s father, Karl (Richard Burgi), may be featured prominently on the series this coming season as well. (Michael Ausiello)

‘Housewives’ scoop: Julie’s coming home

Source: The Ausiello Files

Andrea-Bowen_l Wisteria Lane is welcoming back one of its own this fall: Original Desperate Housewives star Andrea Bowen has signed on to reprise her role as Susan’s eldest spawn, Julie. Although ABC would only confirm that Bowen is set to appear in the Sept. 27 season premiere, a Housewives insider tells me that the actress is returning as a series regular. Bowen vanished from Housewives at the end of season 4, a casualty of the show’s four-year flash forward. She briefly returned last season when Julie, on break from college, announced that she was dating her 40-year-old professor Lloyd (Steven Weber). It’s not clear if he’ll be accompanying her back home, but I’m guessing not.

Casting News

Wisteria Lane’s newest resident, Drea DeMatteo, has found her family. Jeffrey Nordling and Beau Mirchoff have joined the cast of ABC’s dramedy “Desperate Housewives” as regulars next season. Nordling will be playing a New York landscape designer who moves to Wisteria Lane with his wife (DeMatteo) and their tightly wound, sexy and intense son (Mirchoff). Heading into its sixth season, “Desperate” has been beefing up the cast with new faces, including new regulars DeMatteo, Nordling, Mirchoff and Maiara Walsh and returning Andrea Bowen. APA-repped Nordling most recently co-starred in the seventh season of Fox’s hit drama “24.” He also co-starred on FX’s “Dirt” opposite Courteney Cox. Mirchoff, repped by APA and managed by Vital Management Group, starred in Sony’s “The Grudge 3” last year.

Drea de Matteo joins Desperate Housewives

Afraid Desperate Housewives would lose its edge without Nicolette Sheridan’s Edie around? You can fuhgettaboutit. Emmy-winning Sopranos heroine Drea de Matteo is joining the cast as Wisteria Lane’s newest vixenish housewife, sources confirm. De Matteo, who will be a series regular, will play the matriarch of a new Italian family. Casting is underway for her landscape designer husband and their tightly wound son.

Desperate Housewives scoop please! Looks like Bree (Marcia Cross) isn’t giving up on her adulterous ways. Kyle MacLachlan says of the sixth season: “They’ve brought back Richard Burgi and he’s going to come between us a little bit. They have some things coming up. They haven’t told me exactly what’s going to happen, but there are going to be some sparks.” Source: Kristin on E!Online

Please give me some scoop on what’s next for Desperate Housewives‘ Bree. MICKEY: Bree may come off like a brittle maneater, but at heart she’s a real softy, which is why juggling an angry Orson and a horny Karl will really wear on her this fall. Who will she turn to in this time of need? An old friend who you might have thought was out of the picture. Source: TV Guide Online

Please tell us the rumors aren’t true, and that Desperate Housewives isn’t going with a melodramatic miscarriage storyline for Lynette. MICKEY: Egads, this is morbid, Steph, but let’s retrace our steps: Marc Cherry has said that he thinks a mother losing a child would be rich territory for the show to cover. From the season finale — and just about every other episode of the series — we can deduce that Lynette clearly does not like being pregnant. But what if she suddenly does… and then she isn’t? These are good questions to ask. Methinks you might be on to something. Source: TV Guide Online

  • Julie (Andrea Bowen) will be back. Karl (Richard Burgi) will be back for many episodes as Bree’s romance with Karl continues.
  • Maiara Walsh will be a series regular as Gabrielle’s niece Ana. Look for her to complicate Gabrielle’s life.
  • Although Mike marries someone, the Susan/Mike/Katherine triangle will continue.
  • Lynette’s unexpected pregnancy tests her family.

ABC Upfront

After jumping five years ahead into the lives of the women of Wisteria Lane, critically acclaimed series “Desperate Housewives” returns for its sixth season on ABC. Susan (Teri Hatcher) and Mike (James Denton) are brought together by their worst fears; Lynette’s (Felicity Huffman) unexpected pregnancy tests her family; as Bree’s (Marcia Cross) marriage dissolves, she finds herself in the arms of another man; Gabrielle (Eva Longoria Parker) is in for a surprise when she and Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira) welcome their niece into their home; and Katherine (Dana Delany) struggles over the thought of losing Mike.

The Future of Desperate Housewives

ABC has just confirmed that Desperate Housewives will continue as long a Marc Cherry wants to run it. Source: ABC

Spinoff is a Go

THE “Desperate House wives” spinoff starring Lily Tomlin and Kathryn Joosten may be the hottest show that ABC won’t announce at its upfront presentation this week. News of the proposed series prompted a terrific response from the public that has overwhelmed the actresses. Sources report that Joosten received so many supportive emails at her personal Web site that the site was shut down. “Desperate” co-star Neal McDonough, in an appearance on “The View” last Thursday, asked the studio audience if they would be interested in seeing the spinoff. When they all raised their hands, it was clear to producers of the project that it had a built-in audience, which may put the series on the fast-track. “Housewives” creator Marc Cherry is expected to move forward with the project in June after he meets with his staff writers and squares away the sixth season of his Sunday night hit. In the spinoff, which is not yet titled, Tomlin and Joosten are expected to reprise their roles as Roberta and Karen McCluskey. But they won’t be living on Wisteria Lane. They will play modern-day Snoop Sisters who investigate lightweight crimes in a place that has the same unreal suburban feel of the Cherry series. “Cherry loves the idea of a mystery series,” said a source close to the project. There are no plans yet to have any of the other characters from “Desperate Housewives” drop in on an episode of the spinoff, but the cross-pollination between ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice” drew such strong ratings this spring, that it seems like a programming no-brainer.

Grey’s Anatomy – Season 6 Official Description

Seems like the doctors of Seattle Grace Hospital are always fighting for something, from access to cutting-edge surgeries to relationships to patients’ lives. And they don’t always win.

After a long, hard struggle, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) may have finally won the battle for each other’s hearts, sealing their love with vows written on, of all things, a blue post-it note.

One battle the staff of Seattle Grace may be losing is saving the lives of two of their own, Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl) and George O’Malley (T.R. Knight). And Alex Karev (Justin Chambers), Izzie’s new husband, is left holding his breath until next season’s premiere along with the rest of us.

Tough-loving Dr. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) is fighting her own battles. She faces the very real possibility of losing her husband over her extreme dedication to her career.

Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) is fighting her relationship fears while her on-again-off-again boyfriend Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) fights the emotional scars that he brought home from Iraq.

Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) is fighting for her family’s respect and support as her new relationship with Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) blossoms into the healthy romance she needs.

Mark Sloan (Eric Dane) is trying to overcome his past life as a lothario and become a better man—with or without the help of Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh). Perhaps Lexie is too young for him after all.

And Richard Webber (James Pickens, Jr.), The Chief, is fighting to keep his hospital together and to find some way to forgive himself for his past mistakes.

Grey’s Anatomy can be as complicated as any neurosurgery, with episodes that will make you laugh out loud, cry your eyes out and cheer its victories—whether they involve saving a patient’s life or sealing that kiss we’ve all been hungering to witness.

Grey’s Anatomy – Fall preview

Where we left off: Derek and Meredith wrote marriage vows, Izzie’s cancer nearly bested her and George flatlined.

Bye, George: Did you hear? George doesn’t make it. “It’s going to be sad and painful,” executive producer Krista Vernoff tells Us.

Love fills the void: Cristina and Owen forge ahead (“The relationship is less fragile,” McKidd says); Mark and Lexie are “freaking adorable,” says Vernoff; and MerDer cohabit blissfully, though Pompeo’s October due date will necessitate a unique plot. And Izzie? Her health is better; her union to Alex not so much. Marrying under duress, says Vernoff, creates “a complicated dynamic.”

Small blurb on the pic says: All six couples likely won’t make it to the end of the season intact, says Vernoff.

Grey’s Anatomy – James Pickens, Jr. Dishes on Season 6

The first three episodes of Grey’s Anatomy’s sixth season have officially been shot, and original cast member James Pickens, Jr., says he is pleased with what looks to be an interesting season coming up for his character, Dr. Richard Webber (a.k.a. the Chief).

“He has to do a lot of soul-searching to do and has to make some decisions that might change the direction of hospital and/or his life,” the actor told TV Guide. “It is going to have the interns and residents on pins and needles, because they don’t know where their careers are going to go from here.”

“When we left off last season, the hospital was struggling. It had lost its good rating, and [the Chief] spent a good part of the season trying to woo new doctors, getting fancy new machines, and accepting headline-grabbing surgeries,” adds Pickens. “Seattle Grace hospital is his baby, and we know that he’ll do whatever to get that rating back up. Some of his methods will be conventional and some not so conventional. We will see that continue to play out over the course of this season.”

Like everyone else on staff, James Pickens, Jr., echoed previous statements when he explained that the Chief will be greatly affected by George O’Malley’s passing. “The atmosphere has been a little heavy, somber, because they lost one of their own,” Pickens said. “His death affects each member of the staff differently. Everyone feels responsible in some way. In typical Chief style, he will try to hold the place together and keep a stiff upper lip, but it affects him quite deeply.”

Grey’s Anatomy – Premiere Details

After watching the first episode of Grey’s Anatomy (the first hour at least), I can confirm what virtually everyone in the cast had been telling – or warning – us: it’s going to be a very dark season. And why not, George (T.R. Knight) is gone, and while creator Shonda Rhimes appeared like she did everything in her power to ease up the viewers to a George-less Grey’s Anatomy, it just wouldn’t work. Because while there are fans who may not have liked George, in Seattle Grace, everybody liked him. Just how loved George was will be made clear on how people will react to his death.

But let’s not spill too much, shall we?

Some details. There will be: a severed arm, a harrowingly short and strange funeral scene (you’ll know what I mean with the strange part after watching it, trust me), an appearance by George’s mom, talk about George’s man-part, and people reacting in strange, strange ways to his death. While there were those who did the requisite crying and staring into space, Grey’s Anatomy fans should watch out for the more pronounced reactions, including one or two life-changing ones. In short, the episode will be all about George, and rightly so.

Meanwhile, the person who is probably the least affected with George’s passing gets her own storyline. Arizona (newly regularized Jessica Capshaw) will try to do her job while virtually everyone around her is still reeling from what happened. As seen on one of the promos, there is also the matter of the Chief (James Pickens, Jr.) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) in talks over the whole taking over the chief of surgery position – but maybe “in talks” is too soft a term.

On a final note, to me, the talk between George’s mom and one of the surgeons proved to be one of the more heart-breaking scenes in an episode that in itself is heartbreaking enough. But don’t take my word for it. Catch Grey’s Anatomy when it returns on September 24 on ABC.

Grey’s Anatomy – Exclusive Look at George O’Malley’s Funeral

George O’Malley’s funeral on the heartbreaking Grey’s Anatomy two-hour season opener on September 24 will reverberate through the halls of Seattle Grace long after the dead doc’s casket is closed. Nearly everyone will be present—including a frail Izzie in a headscarf—to mourn George’s passing at a graveside service attended by George’s mom (but not by his ex, Callie). A show source tells me that Meredith will deal with the death in a “very Meredith-like” way. “The doctors are processing this huge moment of grief,” says Jessica Capshaw, whose Dr. Arizona Robbins will be holding down the fort and attending to patients. “My character previously lost her brother, so I’ll be helping Callie process this horrible loss.”

Likewise, Dr. Owen Hunt will be assisting Cristina through her mourning process. “Owen is so used to losing colleagues that he’ll become a rock for others to help them deal with it,” says Kevin McKidd about his Iraq-vet character. “Cristina is in denial about it, and he’s there for her at that moment when she actually realizes what has happened.”

Cristina is also expected to finally open up to Owen about her baggage with her ex, Burke, who left her at the altar in 2007. And later on in the upcoming season, a hospital vacancy will be filled by someone who shares a past with Owen. That, Kevin promises, will “shake things up.”

Grey’s Anatomy – 6×05 – Callie & Arizona

The romance between ‘Grey’s Anatomy”s Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw, now a series regular) will have to endure some not-so-divine intervention when Dr. Torres’ father returns to Seattle — with a “heavenly helper” in tow.

Emmy Award winner Hector Elizondo will reprise his role as Mr. Torres in the fifth episode of the coming season, AOL TV has learned exclusively. Bringing about Dad’s latest drop-by? His desire to make amends with the daughter he disowned last spring when he learned that she had taken a female lover.

Though Callie and her father exchanged harsh words and parted ways back then — forcing Callie to cede her status as a Trust Fund Baby — Mr. Torres is now determined to heal the rift. So he’s enlisted a bit of help from “above” … yep, he believes the work of a priest can right past wrongs.

Can Callie and Arizona withstand the meddling of a father and a Father? Heaven help us all.

Grey’s Anatomy – Nora Zehetner and Robert Baker joining the cast

It’s a prescription for professional rivalry when Grey’s Anatomy introduces a trio of new doctors during its sixth season.

Nora Zehetner and Robert Baker have been cast as two of the recurring residents surfacing in Episode 5, TVGuideMagazine.com has learned exclusively. Zehetner (familiar to TV fans from her runs on Heroes and Everwood) will play a doc described by a source as “feisty, very smart and competitive.” As such, she is poised to butt heads with at least one member of Meredith Grey’s posse. Baker, from The CW’s short-lived Valentine, has been cast as the seemingly nicest of the new residents, who may be hiding a nastier side.

The casting of these recurring players comes as Grey’s prepares to bid adieu to T.R. Knight’s George (in the two-hour season opener) and accomodate Ellen Pompeo’s maternity leave. But the precise why of the docs’ arrival is the big mystery here—and one that series boss Shonda Rhimes isn’t willing to reveal.

We now all know that Izzie will live, and George dies.

Grey’s Anatomy – Katherine Heigl takes leave of absence

Katherine Heigl won’t have to worry about putting in long hours on the Grey’s Anatomy set for much longer. Sources confirm to me exclusively that the actress is taking a five-episode hiatus from the ABC drama to go shoot the Greg Berlanti-directed romantic comedy Life as We Know It.

ABC and Grey’s producers have accommodated Heigl’s busy film schedule before, but this is the first time they have given her permission to leave the show for an extended period of time. I’m told Heigl’s absence will be explained on screen, although it’s not clear what prompts Izzie to take off. (Marital trouble with Alex? A trip home to see mom? A Denny sighting in the Caribbean?)


The fact that Heigl was granted such a lengthy leave of absence is surprising in light of the public tongue-lashing ABC president Stephen McPherson gave her last month for complaining about a 17-hour work day. Also, Heigl’s departure — which starts this month and will kick in on screen around November — will almost certainly overlap with co-star Ellen Pompeo’s maternity leave. Translation: Grey’s will be without Izzie and Meredith at the same time!

Of course, Grey’s boss Shonda Rhimes warned me over the summer that change would be in the air this season. ”Eventually, everybody is going to leave the show,” admitted the exec, citing T.R. Knight’s exit and the temporary loss of Pompeo. ”So we’re looking at [ways] we can mess with the structure now…. Season 6 is about finding the longevity of the show and figuring out if there is a future for this show beyond these characters.”

Not so coincidentally, Grey’s recently announced it was adding three new doctors to its rotation: Nora Zehetner, Robert Baker, and Jesse Williams are joining the cast as recurring residents/ medical professionals.

Thoughts? Worried you won’t recognize Seattle Grace this season without George, Mer, and Izzie? Or are you psyched that this probably means more screen time for your other favorites? Sound off below!

Remember the haunting image of an army-clad George waiting outside the elevator for Izzie in the season finale? Well, it wasn’t supposed to be George standing there. The scene was originally shot with Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Denny playing the role of Izzie’s heavenly escort. But as Grey’s boss Shonda Rhimes explains to me exclusively, “I received the first cut [of the finale] on a Friday and something didn’t feel right. All weekend long something was bugging me. And then I woke up Monday morning and it hit me, ‘My God, it’s George! When the elevator opens, it should be George we see.'” There was just one problem. Actually, there were two problems. And to find out what they were and how they got resolved (apologies in advance) pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on sale Friday!… One of the two problems involved Katherine Heigl’s location at the time of Shonda’s epiphany. That’s all you’re getting. You have to pick up the mag for the rest…. The other problem involved what T.R. Knight did to his head after production wrapped. Now I’m really done.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ exclusive: The George story you’ll never see

Source: The Ausiello Files

Tr-knight-greys_lcommon knowledge that T.R. Knight declined Grey’s Anatomy boss Shonda Rhimes’ request to briefly return in season 6 to give his It’s now terminal George some closure. says in this week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story. “[He’d] emotionally walked “I kind of get it,” the series’ creator away.” Fans, however, may not be quite as chill when they hear the killer story she had planned for him. In this fall’s season premiere, George will succumb to the injuries he sustained after getting mowed down by that bus in last May’s finale. But that wasn’t supposed to be the last we saw of him. Says Rhimes, the episode was then going to flash back to the hours during which George was missing, from when he left the hospital to when he returned later on as a disfigured John Doe. “I wanted to see his last day [alive] really badly,” she says. “What I thought was interesting was the idea of, we now know it’s the last day of someone’s life, [so wedifferently than [we] would any other time.” Viewers would have also seen firsthand how George’s split-second decision to save that girl’s life ’re] looking at it cost him his own. “I wanted to see the moment he leapt in front of the bus,” Rhimes confirms. “I wanted to bookend the episode [so that] the first time you see him leap in front of the bus, it’s really scary. But the second time you see it, he’s a hero. “I thought it would have been a beautiful episode,” she continues, adding that, had we seen those missing hours, “We might have learned something new about George.” Although disappointed she wasn’t able to tell that story, Rhimes insists she’s content with how George’s five-year arc concluded. “We really got to see him grow up,” she says. “It really does feel like we watched a full evolution of a character, and I feel good about that.” Still, I would’ve loved to have seen those flashbacks. What about you? Do you wish Knight had stuck around a little longer to give us George’s last day? Or do you agree with him that the final shot of his character standing outside the elevator was “the best way to leave it”?

Katherine Heigl Ponders Her Grey’s Fate

Dr. Izzie Stevens could be in a coma or even dead when Grey’s Anatomy resolves its Season 5 cliffhanger on Sept. 24, says Katherine Heigl. “You last saw Izzie flat-lining, so… I’m either there as a ghost ‘on the other side,’ or I survived a disease [stage IV metastatic melanoma] no one survives,” Heigl said during a Monday visit to Late Show with David Letterman.

When Letterman asked how she could be pulling 17-hour workdays — as Heigl had shared earlier in the sit-down — if Izzie isn’t alive and kicking, she countered, “What if I was in bed in a coma? They could do that.” Heigl shared that it was “a little weird” reporting to the Grey’s set last week without pal T.R. Knight around. (Last month, the actor, who played George O’Malley on the show, negotiated an early release from his contract with the ABC drama.) When asked for how much longer she will stick with Grey’s, Heigl said with a trace of sarcasm, “That’s what I keep wondering.”

Heigl, who is contractually bound to Grey’s for another two seasons, said that while she hopes the show enjoys the longevity of, say, ER, which ran 15 years, she’d like to continue playing Izzie “maybe not quite that long.”Heigl stars opposite Gerard Butler (300) in the romantic comedy The Ugly Truth, in theaters July 24

More Info on T.R. Knight’s Exit

Fans were shocked when T.R. Knight made the surprising decision to leave Grey’s Anatomy, the hit medical drama that launched him to fame. This week, in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor reveals what led him to his decision, and he also candidly discusses “Isaiahgate,” coming out of the closet, and leaving his friends at Seattle Grace.

This fall, Knight was surprised to see his character George O’Malley all but vanish from the show — for the first nine episodes of season 5, he appeared on screen a total of only 48 minutes, compared to 114 for Sandra Oh’s Christina. Still, due to what he calls a gradual “breakdown of communication” between himself and exec producer Shonda Rhimes, the actor chose not to ask his boss what was going on with his character. Instead, he simply asked to leave. “My five-year experience proved to me that I could not trust any answer that was given [about George],” he explains. “And with respect, I’m going to leave it at that.”

Though he was unknown when Grey’s premiered, Knight soon emerged as one of the breakout stars (and even earned a supporting actor Emmy nod in 2007), but it was what came to be known as “Isaiahgate” that would catapult him to household-name status. After Isaiah Washington referred to Knight as a “f—-t” during an on-set argument with co-star Patrick Dempsey, the tabloids caught wind of it, Knight came out in the press, and Washington was fired. While Knight doesn’t specifically fault Rhimes for how the situation was handled behind the scenes, he says the exec producer was among those who tried to discourage him from coming out: “I think she was concerned about having my statement come out so close to the [initial] event.” Rhimes denies this: “I said, ‘If you want to come out, that’s awesome.'”

Knight returned to work on season 4, but the actor struggled with the story line in which George cheated on his wife Callie (Sara Ramirez) with Izzie (Katherine Heigl). And once George went MIA from the beginning of season 5, the star came to the conclusion that his character had “expired.” Today, Knight is at peace with his choice toleave: “There just comes a time when it’s so clear that moving on is the best decision,” he says. But at first, his castmate and friend Heigl tried to talk him out of it. “I didn’t think it was the right decision,” she says. “I felt like some of the problems could be worked through. But by the time it came to fruition, I was [glad] for him because he was ready to go.”

Knight knows he’s taking a risk walking away from his top 10 show and $14 million contract. “From an outsider’s perspective, I get the [impression that] ‘He’s just a spoiled actor…he doesn’t know how good he has it,'” he says. “There are a lot of people who would like to be in my position. But in the end, I need to be fulfilled in my work.”

For more on TR Knight — including how he felt when George was back-burnered, what he really thought of the “Gizzie” story line, and where you can see him next– plus what’s in store for the other docs on Grey’s Anatomy, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands Friday July 24.

Grey’s Exclusive: Mitch Pileggi Returns for Season Premiere

Source: TV Guide Online

Grey’s Anatomy has prescribed an encore for X-Files alum Mitch Pileggi. Pileggi, who first guest-starred on the ABC drama toward the end of Season 3, will return for the two-hour Season 6 premiere, again playing hospital board chairman Larry Jennings, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively. Check out photos from Grey’s Anatomy When Pileggi first appeared as Jennings, the Seattle Grace bigwig required medical attention after a trip to the Amazon left him with a carnivorous fish lodged in an unfortunate part of the anatomy. For his encore, Pileggi’s hospital mucky-muck will have official business to tend to. It perhaps relates to not one but two staff doctors, Izzie Stevens and George O’Malley, looking the Grim Reaper in the eye. Check out more of last season’s cliff-hangers
Grey’s Anatomy‘s season premiere airs Thursday, Sept. 24, at 9 pm/ET.

Has Grey’s Anatomy figured out how they’re going to work around Ellen Pompeo‘s maternity leave yet? Erm. Grey’s is such a hairy show to report on. We’ll tell you this, and maybe you’ll forgive us for taking the long way around. A source tells us that ABC didn’t want Rachel Griffiths (who gave birth to her third child on June 21) to skip any episodes of Brothers & Sisters and that production was pushed back a week to accommodate her maternity leave. What does that mean for Grey’s? Well, if ABC doesn’t want a Griffiths-less B&S, you could assume (just assume) that they really wouldn’t want a Pompeo-less Grey’s Anatomy. Pompeo’s due this fall though, so there would be no real way to push back production. Solution? Well, we’re just spit-balling ideas here, because no one’s confirming anything, but you could do what our source tells us is a possible scenario for dealing with Ellen Pompeo’s maternity leave: When E.P. gets back from her baby break, shoot a bunch of Meredith Grey scenes in succession, and then have your editors work overtime to slot her scenes into the episodes that were shot/produced before her return, therefore giving the audience the full Meredith Grey experience with no gaps.

Sources confirm that Chandra Wilson will be directing an episode of Grey’s Anatomy this season, although we’ve actually heard that another actor was negotiating to direct an episode of Grey’s Anatomy this season, as well as make a couple of other tweaks to his/her contract to allow him/her more creative and personal freedom.

Color me shocked that Katherine Heigl isn’t leaving Grey’s Anatomy. Is it possible we’re being duped in some way? MATT: I must say that the lack of fanfare surrounding ABC’s confirmation of Heigl’s status — especially when juxtaposed with the flurry of official statements regarding T.R. Knight’s departure — made me raise one of my overgrown eyebrows. “Sure, she’s staying… for just one more episode,” I cynically hypothesized. But one of my best sources insists that this is not a case of clever semantics, and that Heigl’s Izzie will have a significant presence in the fall. Source: TV Guide Online

ABC Makes It Official: Heigl Is Staying on Grey’s

Source: TV Guide Online

Katherine Heigl will return to Grey’s Anatomy for Season 6, according to a statement from ABC. The news comes just hours after T.R. Knight’s Grey’s Anatomy exit was finally confirmed — by both the actor and series creator Shonda Rhimes. ABC declined TVGuide.com’s request for further comment from Rhimes (who did issue a statement on Friday regarding Knight’s departure). Similarly, Heigl’s rep said no statement was forthcoming from the actress. The announcement ends months of speculation over Heigl’s future with the show. In June 2008, she made statements about her Emmy worthiness that appeared to cast aspersion on the Grey’s Anatomy writing staff. Not long after that controversy, there were reports that Rhimes would exact a sort of “payback” by killing off Izzie Stevens, Heigl’s character. Seemingly confirming such speculation, Izzie was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic brain cancer and appeared to flat-line in the season-finale episode. In other Grey’s news, ABC also officially announced that Jessica Capshaw, whose Dr. Arizona Robbins has been a breath of fresh air in the often angsty halls of Seattle Grace, will continue with the show — now as a series regular.

Katherine Heigl Signs Contract for Grey’s Anatomy Season Six

The cast lineup for season six of Grey’s Anatomy is becoming clearer by the day. Following on Marc Malkin’s report last month that star T.R. Knight is leaving the series, a source confirms that Katherine Heigl “will be back.” But what’s the official word from the show bosses and Heigl’s people? Reps for the hit ABC series and for Katherine Heigl both declined to comment. Source: EOnline

T.R. Knight Statement on leaving Grey’s Anatomy

“Leaving Grey’s Anatomy was not an easy decision for me to make. I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to play this character and will miss my fellow cast and crew very much. I continue to wish them the very best, and wholeheartedly thank all of the fans who have supported me and the show with such passion and enthusiasm.”

Series creator Shonda Rhimes just followed with her own statement: “I think I speak for the entire Grey’s Anatomy family when I say we wish T.R. Knight the best in his future endeavors. He is an incredibly talented actor and a person whose strength of character is admired by all of us.”

It’s official: T.R. Knight exits ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

Greys-anatomy-tr-knight_l Fall’s still months away, but one of last season’s bigger Grey’s Anatomy cliffhangers has already been resolved: Sources confirm to me exclusively that T.R. Knight’s wish to be released from his contract has been granted. The official decision, I’m told, came down in the past few days, just as many of his castmates began receiving their formal pickup letters from ABC.

What does this news mean for George? What will Knight do next? And what about Izzie? Find out after the jump…

The actor’s exit closes yet another rocky chapter for the embattled primetime soap, one that opened with Isaiahgate and worsened when, amid rumors that Knight was clashing with series creator Shonda Rhimes, George O’Malley was backburnered. Finally, Knight grew so fed up with his character’s lack of storyline that he asked if he could check out three years before his deal expired. After that, all indications were that he would be let go, although Rhimes didn’t make a final decision until recently. (Contractually speaking, she had until June 30 to make up her mind.)

Last month, Rhimes told me that George’s relatively light storyline this year was the result of the normal “ebbs and flows” of ensemble television. But she did acknowledge that he was intentionally written lighter during the last half of the season so that viewers wouldn’t think it odd that he was absent from the season finale — something that was necessary to preserve the episode’s biggest twist: that George was actually a disfigured John Doe who had been hit by a bus. “I really wanted you to not notice that he wasn’t there for most of this episode,” she said. “I don’t think anybody noticed because of the way we laid it out this season.”

Knight’s departure would seem to confirm that George doesn’t survive, although fans have wondered whether Rhimes is planning to pull an Elizabeth Reaser (Jane Doe/Rebecca) and have him live, only to be replaced by another actor, thanks to plastic surgeon Sloane’s handiwork. That’s “hilarious, ridiculous,” the boss has said. However, I’ve heard that she was interested in having Knight appear in next season’s first three episodes, but a short-term deal could not be brokered.

What will Knight do now? Per an insider, the theatrically-trained thesp is in talks to start 2010 by headlining a Broadway revival of Lend Me a Tenor, the classic farce he recently did a reading of with Alfred Molina, Tony Shalhoub, and Marian Seldes.

Reps for Knight and ABC declined to comment.

Now that the question of George’s future seems to have been answered, another puzzler moves to the forefront: What’s going to happen to Katherine Heigl’s Izzie, whose life also hung in the balance in last May’s capper? Stay tuned… In the meantime, proceed to the comments and weigh in on Knight’s departure.

Exclusive: ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ promotes Jessica Capshaw

Jessica-Capshaw-Greys-Anatomy_l Finally, some good news for poor, lovelorn Callie: Grey’s Anatomy has officially promoted her on-screen leading lady, Jessica Capshaw, to a full-fledged series regular, sources confirm to me exclusively.

The news hardly comes as a surprise. Last month, series creator Shonda Rhimes all but signed off on Capshaw’s promotion when I interviewed her after the finale. “I love Jessica Capshaw,” she gushed. “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.”

The ex-Practice star joined Grey’s last February as a recurring love interest for Sara Ramirez’s Callie. Her arrival came on the heels of the controversial dismissal of Brooke Smith as Callie’s girlfriend Dr. Hahn.

What do you think? Happy Capshaw is sticking around? Are you as high on Callizona as Rhimes is? Or are you still holding out hope that Dr. Hahn will one day escape from Seattle Grace’s parking lot? Sound off below!

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

Chandra Wilson waiting to re-sign her contract

Although most Grey’s Anatomy fans are anxiously awaiting the fates of T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl next season, one cast member is nervous about her own. Chandra Wilson, who plays Dr. Bailey on the hit ABC show, is still waiting to re-sign her contract to come back next season. “You know, I don’t have the slightest idea!” she said on The View Thursday when asked if she knew who was leaving the show. “I know nothing!” In fact, she lamented that she still hasn’t received word on whether she’ll be back on the show. “I’m waiting for my Disney letter saying, ‘You have the option to come back,'” she said. The company has until June 20 to send it, she added. After speculation that Heigl’s character would be killed off in the season finale of Grey’s, her and Knight’s characters appeared to have died. Still, show creator Shonda Rhimes hasn’t divulged any information on next season’s cast or story lines. Source: Us Magazine

Jessica Capshaw talks about Meredith, George and Izzie

Jessica Capshaw — who stars as Dr. Arizona Robbins in the hit ABC series — doesn’t know if Ellen Pompeo pregnancy will be written into next season’s show, and she’s equally unaware if T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl will return (The two appeared to have died in the season finale).

“No one knows!” Capshaw, the daughter of Kate Capshaw and stepdaughter of Steven Spielberg says.

She adds: “[Show creator Shonda Rhimes] is keeping it under wraps, and I think the best thing about that is she is the guardian of the gate. It’s better that way. She doesn’t even run the risk of it coming out because nobody knows.”

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.

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.
CC:
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.
CC:
OK.

WWK: Can you get Josh Holloway to come to Comic-Con?
CC:
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?
CC:
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.

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.

Kristin’s Red Carpet Interviews from the Premiere Party.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VotWEhZvEFs

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.
Enjoy.

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.

The sixth-season premiere will present us with two seemingly incompatible storylines: One in which we find out someone we thought was dead is actually alive (Charlotte) in the same time that we last saw him or her, and the other in which we will see Flight 815 again. And these two storylines will go on for a little while (in different decades) from what I hear. (Watch With Kristin) … Desmond will indeed be part of the Season 6 premiere. Source: Lost Spoilers

Episode 6.03: What Kate Does (Kate-centric) Airdate: February 9, 2010

TVSquad summarized various spoilers from the two sources: The scenes being filmed at what is supposed to be LAX International Arrivals feature Jack in a suit, a very pregnant Claire, Kate and Dr. Arzt, amongst others. In the third episode, titled “What Kate Does,” Kate and Claire share a cab and their destination is the house of the couple who are set to adopt Aaron. When they reach the couple’s door, the woman says she really wanted to adopt, but that her husband … and then says she can’t have the baby right now. Bad timing, as Claire goes into labor at that exact moment!

Episode 6.09: Ab Aeterno (Richard-centric) Airdate: March 23, 2010

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!)

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?
Welliver:
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?
Welliver:
No — and I think they deliberately withheld that.

TVGuide.com: Were you only given the script pages for your scene?
Welliver:
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?
Welliver:
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…
Welliver:
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?
Welliver:
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.
Welliver:
[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.
Welliver:
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

Claire-lost_l

Question: I miss Claire on Lost. Emilie de Ravin is such a great actress. Will she be back for all of next season?
Ausiello:
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.
