Bones Season 7 Spoilers: Brennan & Booth Really Having a Baby

Bones Finale Post Mortem: ‘It Was Not a Dream’

[Warning: If you have yet to watch Thursday’s season finale of Bones, run — don’t walk — to the nearest emergency exit. Everyone else, onward and downward….]

Tonight’s Bones season finale solved two major mysteries that had been looming over the series in recent weeks: Yes, Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) did engage in comfort sex in last week’s episode. And yes, Deschanel’s real-life pregnancy will be incorporated into the show.

Plus, viewers got an answer to the biggest cliffhanger hanging over the entire series: After six years of will-they or won’t-they foreplay, Booth and Brennan are heading into next season as both a full-fledged couple and expectant parents. Put in TV business terms, the show’s producers not only blew off that pesky (and outdated) Moonlighting curse, but they kicked it in the groin. And we kind of love them for it.

That’s not to say, however, that we don’t still have questions. Because we do. Luckily, exec producer Stephen Nathan agreed to jump on the phone this evening for a quick post mortem and a preview of what’s to come.

TVLINE | First, please assure me that this isn’t going to be some kind of bait and switch. Brennan is really carrying Booth’s child, right?
It was not a dream. There is no alternate reality. What you see is what you get. They are having a baby. She is pregnant with his child. She [slept with] him in the previous episode and this was the outcome.

TVLINE | What impact did Emily’s pregnancy have on this story? Would you have gone this route regardless?
Emily being pregnant certainly figured into it to a certain extent. But [series creator] Hart [Hanson] and I were leaning toward this independently of that. The biggest problem we faced going into Season 7 was how to get these two people together while keeping the integrity of Brennan and Booth’s characters in tact. By going this route, we didn’t have to have them go through the traditional love-dovey stage where everything was wonderful and they understood each other and they got past their differences. That’s never going to be the case. They now are together but are essentially the same exact characters. They’re going to disagree on everything they disagreed about before, including how to approach their lives together, religion, family and now how to approach having a child. So we lose nothing but gain a huge amount with the reality that they are now together sharing the biggest thing in their lives.

TVLINE | So this isn’t just two co-workers having a baby together after a one-night stand. This is a full-fledged couple starting a family?
They are as much of a full-fledged couple as two unique and difficult people can be. Brennan is not a fan of marriage. Booth is somebody who’s always wanted to get married. These issues still remain. The tension that has existed in their relationship up to this point will continue. They’re now sharing something and they’re committed to each other in a way they always wanted and there’s no way to avoid that. They have to deal with the reality that they’ve gotten what they secretly wished for.

TVLINE | Will they move in together?
That will be addressed in Season 7. When we open in Season 7, it’s not Ozzie and Harriet. It’s not a perfect little domestic family situation. They haven’t figured out where they’re living, how they’re living and what their future is. They just know that they’re together.

TVLINE | How much time will have passed?
That’s something we’re still deciding. We will probably pick up a couple of months down the line.

TVLINE | This is a very unconventional path to take. I mean, these two haven’t been on a real date together and now they’re having a baby.
The reality is, Booth has been with Brennan more than he ever was with [a real girlfriend like] Hannah. Which is always the case when people work together in a high-pressure job. [By making Brennan pregnant] we avoid all of the [trappings] that people commonly associate with the Moonlighting curse, which is, “Oh, now they have to date,” or “Oh, now they have to hug each other and kiss and share desserts.” They never have to share dessert. [Laughs]

TVLINE | When you and Hart concocted this story, did you go to Emily and tell her that if she’s ever thinking of having a baby with husband David Hornsby now would be the time?
[Laughs] Not really. Because we still have the [prosthetic baby bump] that we used on Angela. We already bought that. We could easily re-use it.

TVLINE | How did Emily and David react when you told them this was the direction you were going in?
They were very, very happy. It allowed them to take a big step forward as actors with their characters. And it allows us to keep them precisely who they’ve been for the past six years, and yet move them forward without getting into the stuff where you kind of go, “Eww, now they like each other; there’s no point in watching the show.” Nobody really wants that happy domesticity. And I can’t foresee that ever happening with the two of them. Their feelings for each other are clear. Everybody’s known it for years, even though Booth and Brennan haven’t always copped to it.

TVLINE | Any concern about embarking on another season-long baby story on the heels of the Angela-Hodgins pregnancy plot?
We did have thoughts about that. But then we realized it can be an advantage, because this is really what happens to most people. Friends have a baby, and then they have a baby, and then you hear from the friends about how they raised the baby, then you want to kill those friends because now they’re know-it-alls. So the idea of them sharing the experience of having a baby could actually help the show, because they are not going to raise their children in the same way. And then we’ll also have other characters weighing in on it. We have Max around, who we think would probably be a very good nanny. [Laughs]

TVLINE | You pointed out that Brennan isn’t the marrying kind. Are you ruling out a Booth and Brennan wedding?
No. Not at all. That will be addressed and not resolved in the season premiere.

TVLINE | Did Fox freak out about this storyline?
As a matter of fact, no. They were fabulous. They were great. Everybody realized the [challenge] of getting them together. And we had to do it in a way that hadn’t been done before. And I do want to say that Bones is still going to be Bones. There are still going to be dead bodies and revolting remains. And [Booth and Brennan] are still going to be solving crimes. It’s not going to turn into a soap. They’re [personal] lives will be ongoing and we will focus on that, but we’re still a crime-odey.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 7 Spoilers! Meredith’s Quest for a Baby, A Couple Marries!

Grey’s Anatomy Season 7 Spoilers: Who Gets Married?!

Source: TV Fanatic

After a harrowing sixth season finale in May, the Seattle Grace-Mercy West Hospital doctors are healthy and happy once again … or at least on the road to recovery.

Some of the surgeons we love will have a more difficult time moving forward than others, and each doctor will grieve in his or her own way. What can we expect?

Here’s what TV Guide has to say about how the trauma of the shooting impacts Derek in particular, a new love for Teddy and a marriage in the Season 7 opener.

Who do you think it is? Read on and share your thoughts …

Derek steps down: In the season premiere, scenes flash back to post-trauma therapy sessions a few weeks after the shootings, then jump ahead two months.

Richard and Der

Derek’s tenure as Interim Chief of Surgery is coming to a voluntary end.

Derek is released from the hospital, still unaware of Meredith’s pregnancy and miscarriage. “I think he’ll be devastated,” says Patrick Dempsey. “Seeing how quick life can be, I think they’ll want to have a child even more. Why not create a life before you lose your own?”

To that end, Derek calls a staff meeting to announce he never enjoyed being chief and is returning the reins to Dr. Webber. “He’s in mourning over the loss of the staffers [in the shooting] and feels responsible, which is why he steps down,” adds Patrick.

“It’s much better having the dynamic the way it was.”

Teddy’s new love: With the love triangle over, Teddy won’t waste any time cuddling up to the new trauma counselor, Dr. Andrew Perkins (James Tupper).

“I make out with him in Episode 1,” Kim Raver reveals proudly. “It was just like it was with Kiefer [Sutherland] on 24, where we met and had to kiss. Teddy’s going to wonder if she’s feeling so good in the relationship just because he’s a therapist.”

I do: One of the couples below says it. Read on and guess which!

Callie and Arizona? “The relationship takes the steps you take as you get deeper involved with someone,” hints Sara Ramirez. “But Callie’s been married, so that could pose an issue.” Adds Jessica Capshaw: “I don’t see Arizona entering into anything that’s not ironclad.”

Alex and Lexie? Lexie suffered a breakdown and Meredith is helping her cope. Alex opted to keep his near-fatal bullet inside his chest “to show off to the girls like a third nipple,” says Justin Chambers (Alex). They hardly seem like a couple ready for marriage, though Justin says Alex would marry Lexie if he “knocked her up.” Romantic!

Owen and Cristina? “They definitely take it to the next level,” says Kevin McKidd. “The wedding could easily be them.” But Cristina will be dealing with some post-traumatic stress of her own. “They’ve been through a huge amount in two seasons,” notes Kevin, “and I think that Cristina felt burned by her last wedding [to Burke].”

Final hint (although it’s not really a hint): Look for at least 1-2 of the parents of the betrothed to turn up for the nuptials. Thoughts on who might be tying the knot? Share your theories on that topic and all things Grey’s Anatomy by leaving comments below!

McDreamy Still Shaken Up on Grey’s Anatomy

Source: TV Fanatic

It looks like the aftermath of the tragic, stunning sixth season finale will not blow over quickly on Grey’s Anatomy. The doctors will understandably be affected in many ways.

Here’s how one major figure will be effected, according to EW’s Michael Ausiello:

“Even though nearly two months will have passed since the shooting rampage, Derek will still be in pretty bad shape when the season starts. And I’m not talking physically.”

Two months later and he’s still having a hard time? It’s not hard to believe, but still sad for Derek. Will he be sitting down with the new shrink? Might be a good idea.

First, it sounds like he’ll have to come up with bail money, however.

Looks like troubled times ahead for McDreamy.

Ausiello continues: “A major character will be sent directly to jail by the end of the episode. Hint: This person has already been name-checked in this week’s [column].”

What do you think happens with Derek? Will he be able to bounce back from the events of that tragic day – and how will Meredith’s other tragic news play into this?

Grey’s Anatomy – Episode 7.02 – Episode Details

Mitch – Scene 1: Kerry is being examined by Dr. Howard, Mitch shows up and is all hyped up on survival drama. He tells Kerry they could have died, the crash was like a one-in-a-million shot and he’s going to take one too so he says ILY to Kerry and if they pull through this he’ll love her forever. Scene 2: In the ER, Dr. Frank treats Warren and Mitch is sitting in the next bed. Mitch tells Warren he tried telling Kerry he loves her but her ears were messed up. Warren looks at him shocked and horrified, gets up dragging his IV pole and says he’s got to tell Kerry [he loves her]. Mitch protests saying Kerry is his but Warren says he’s been working up to this for a year. Scene 3: Mitch is sitting by Kerry’s bedside. She asks him how Warren is doing, Mitch says Warren is bald. Kerry says she knows that and that Mitch doesn’t really love her, he only thinks he does. She starts crying and Mitch apologizes, says Warren is a good guy and could probably get a hairpiece.

Russ – Scene 1: Dr. Howard cuts off Russ’ shirt. He has massive black bruises on his sides and back. He can’t feel his arm but since being at the hospital he started moving his fingertips. Dr. Howard says it’s probably transitory paralysis and his arm should be back to normal in a couple of hours. Russ asks about Kerry and pleads for someone to check on her for him. Scene 2: Dr. Howard treats Warren. Russ sits in a chair near Warren and Mitch is in the next bed. Mitch says he’s going to tell Kerry he loves her, Warren says ‘no’ and gets up heading to the door. Russ tells them to leave Kerry alone, she could have died and she’s his. Scene 3: Russ and Mitch sit by Kerry’s bedside and she’s asking about Warren. Russ asks her if she loves Warren, Mitch says that Warren is bald and Kerry starts crying. Russ turns to Mitch and says “Nice. You made her cry.”

Warren – Scene 1: Dr. Howard is treating Warren. He says he’s feeling queasy, Dr. Howard says he has a bit of a fever and got hit the hardest so that must be why. Warren feels like it’s his fault everyone else got hurt, Dr. Howard says it isn’t. Warren asks if Kerry is OK and Dr. H says that Kerry wanted to know the same thing about him. Warren asks if she wanted to know about him specifically and what she said. Mitch, who is sitting in the next bed, says he tried to tell Kerry he loves her. Warren is horrified and shocked, jumps out of bed dragging his IV stand towards Kerry saying he has got to tell her. Mitch says Kerry is his but Warren says no, he’s been working up to this for a year. Mitch pushes past and it’s a race. Scene 2: Dr. Howard checks on Warren who is sweaty, pale, on oxygen and drugged for pain. Warren asks Dr. Howard to tell Kerry he’s sorry for tackling her instead of grabbing her flag, that she’s the funniest and sweetest and pleads for Dr. H to make sure Kerry is ok. Scene 3: Kerry is in bed and Dr. Howard wheels Warren in. Warren says he was told he slammed her really hard on the field. Kerry says she’s fine, it’s football and accidents happen. Warren says he’s sorry. Kerry says she isn’t, she loves him and has been in love with him forever. Warren takes that in, he’s stunned and asks Dr. Howard to push him a little closer. Dr. H pushes Warren right up next to Kerry and they kiss

TV Guide – Shonda Rhimes: Grey’s Anatomy Docs All Grown Up in New Season

Normally, people who finish med school and save other peoples’ lives for a living are considered adults — that is, unless they’re Doogie Houser. Or on Grey’s Anatomy. After six seasons, the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes, says her characters are finally becoming adults — and that their problems will only get more grown-up.

TVGuide.com: What can you tell us about the upcoming season of Grey’s Anatomy?Rhimes: With both Grey’s and Private Practice, we’ve got two really exciting seasons coming up. It’s been really fun to sit down and plan them. Our characters are growing up on Grey’s. They’re really adults now and that’s been a real challenge, in how to let them be grownups and figure out what that means for them.

TVGuide.com: Meredith’s miscarriage in the finale was heartbreaking. Now that she knows she wants to have a baby, will that be a focus for her this season?
Rhimes: It’s possible. The theme for the entire season of Grey’s this year is rebirth, so extrapolate from there.

TVGuide.com: James Tupper is coming in as a trauma counselor for the first three episodes. Are there any characters in particular taking it harder than others?
Rhimes: I think they’re all taking it pretty hard in their own individual ways. We talked about it a lot, and the fact that there’s this group of people that’s been extraordinarily damaged by this experience. That’s what’s going to be carrying them forward, and it will change how they view their jobs, view themselves and view their relationships with one another. A lot of them were about to die. I think they’re all fairly damaged and trying to recover.

TVGuide.com: Do you look at Lexie (Chyler Leigh) as the next Grey of Grey’s Anatomy?
Rhimes: I have to be honest, I’m not really thinking of it that way. I don’t think that’s a conscious thought on my part, that we’re trying to feed a new Grey of Grey’s Anatomy. We have Meredith Grey, she is here and won’t be going anywhere for the next two seasons. I haven’t really been thinking about filling the shoes of somebody who’s sitting right in front of me.

TVGuide.com: The Lexie, Mark (Eric Dane) and Alex (Justin Chambers) love triangle definitely got complicated. What’s ahead for them?
Rhimes: A lot of people like to see a lot of people with Mark. I get a lot of mail about why Callie [Sara Ramirez] isn’t with Mark, why Addison [Kate Walsh] isn’t with Mark. Mark is a very juicy, interesting character and we’re going to try to explore what happens next for both of those characters in a really interesting and, hopefully, a very non-predictable way.

TVGuide.com: After making sacrifices for each other in the finale, will we see a happy Callie and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) in the new season?
Rhimes: Callie and Arizona are going to be together; I don’t know if happy is the right word. We’re going to see them struggle with their relationship, where it’s going and what that means for them. The reality of the situation is that they are two people who are trying to settle down together and figure out what that means. That’s going to be really interesting to watch unfold.

Grey’s Anatomy Sets Return Date – But There’s a Twist! // <![CDATA[//

‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ will launch its seventh season on Thursday, September 23, a source tells Fancast, effectively confirming that which was disseminated over the weekend via Twitter.

Ah, but there’s a twist. Whereas in recent years the show has kicked off with a two-part, two-hour opener, I am hearing that that as of right now, the plan is for Season 7 to opt for traditional, hour-long premiere.

Last season’s opener, after all, had much territory to cover, what with George tragically dying and Izzie almost checkout out as well. Here, you can watch Part 1 (”Good Mourning”) and Part 2 (”Goodbye”).

When Season 7 starts up, however, the aftermath isn’t quite so immediate. Last we tuned in, a gunman had terrorized the halls of Seattle Grace, shedding much blood and leaving several dead (RIP, Reed). The shooter ultimately met his own grisly fate, but not before shaking up the docs we know so well.

As such, some of the questions going into September 23 are:

* How have Meredith and Derek bounced back from her miscarrying the little life that was inside of her for so sadly short a time?

* Where do things stand between Cristina and Owen? Yang entered the Season 6 finale not knowing where her man stood, only to see him pronounce her “the woman I love” during a harrowing moment. Has Hunt been backing up his words with actions? Is Teddy once and for all surgically excised from the mix?

* Lexie, poor Lexie: Has she given Alex the hook, seeing as his thoughts were all about Izzie as his life hung in the balance in the finale? Do she and Mark – who impetuously popped the question the week before the gunman crisis – have any chance at a second chance?

* Is Callie truly at peace with the notion of her and Callie mothering “10 babies on a beach in Spain”?

* Where stands Bailey’s nascent romance with gasman Ben – if only since Jason George is now shooting the Shonda Rhimes-produced midseason series, ‘Off The Map’?

* Was Webber empowered by his bit of bravado, where he stared down the shooter? Did that defining moment solidify his seat “on the wagon”?

* Now that Jesse Williams and Sarah Drew have been promoted to series regulars, how will Jackson and April fit into the SGH tapestry? Are their respective crushes (Cristina, Derek) behind them… or might there be unfinished business?

‘Grey’s’ doc Chandra Wilson reflects on harrowing finale and her most feared plot (hint: R.I.P. Bailey)

greys-anatomy-wilson_320.jpg Image Credit: Danny Feld/ABC Today’s deadline day for Emmy voters to turn in their ballots, and based on her gut-wrenching performance in last month’s Grey’s Anatomy finale, I’m guessing Chandra Wilson’s name will be checked off a lot in the supporting actress race. As Bailey helplessly looked on as fellow doc Percy’s life slipped away, her breakdown was as shocking as it was haunting. In this exclusive interview, the four-time Emmy nominee reflects on what it was like shooting the nerve-wracking episode, speculates on the fallout for her character, and opens up about the one Grey’s storyline she hopes never happens.

How did you prepare for the freak-out scene?

CHANDRA WILSON: My goodness. It was actually one of those things where the situation was so incredibly sad. Pounding on things and lashing out — all of that stuff is very much against my personality. So just being in that position — the richness of where the characters were — was all I needed.

Did it leave you emotionally drained?

WILSON: Actually, I was really energized after that. I just felt like everything was in the right place. We were doing exactly what we needed to be doing at that point in time. Everything led up to that — and then there was still work to do afterwards. When you have that feeling that you’re in the right place it gives you energy as an actor. It would’ve been more draining if I had been pulling from something personal, pulling from my childhood. But because it was what was happening in the show it made it okay.

How do you think this experience will change Bailey?

WILSON: I was asking that same question: “Where does she go?” I think George’s death last year stunned her in a way that she had to decide to keep functioning and try not to get emotional or emotionally involved with her co-workers. But for me, the image that never went away was that the barrel of the gun was in her face. Normally if there’s blood and someone is shot you go into doctor-mode. But she could never get the image of that gun out of her head long enough to do her Dr. Bailey thing. It’ll be interesting to see if that kind of fear still lives with her or comes back to revisit.

Shonda Rhimes originally planned to have Bailey get shot, but she couldn’t go through with it.

WILSON: I heard about that after the fact and I was like, “Wow.” [Laughs] I don’t know what that would’ve been like to get hurt — for Bailey or for me. Because just looking at the barrel of the gun was too much for me.

Your onscreen love interest, Jason George, is starring in Rhimes’ new medical drama Off the Map, which probably means no happy ending for Bailey and Ben. Are you disappointed?

WILSON: I honestly don’t know what that means. I don’t know what’s going to happen to that relationship. There could be some happy ending that we don’t know anything about. [Map] is a midseason show, so there will be [some time] for him to [work on Grey’s].

Was it fun to play a flirtatious, sexual Bailey?

WILSON: It was certainly out of Bailey’s comfort zone. And for me as an actor it was scary to step outside of what you’re used to and try something new.

What are you doing over your hiatus?

WILSON: I’m actually having a hiatus. [Laughs] I forget to do that sometimes. So this year I said I wasn’t going to worry about whether they ask me back next season. I’m just going to sit down and take a break. I’m going to be a mom and go to a PTA meeting — all the things that I, unfortunately, miss out on during a year.

Did you receive your official pickup letter from ABC?

WILSON: I did. I finally received it last week. I was like, “That took long enough!” [Laughs]

Did you really have anxiety about that?

WILSON: It’s not even anxiety. It’s just the reality of what we do. I never get so comfortable that I ever forget that. What we do as actors is really about decisions that get made in rooms with desks. And people change their minds all the time about things. Or get brilliant ideas like, “Hey, I think Bailey should die this year! It’ll be a 10-part arc and everybody will cry!” [Laughs] You have no control over that as an actor. So you make the most of it and you learn as much as you can.

We hear so much about actors wanting to leave Grey’s. It’s refreshing to hear from someone who actually wants to stay.

WILSON: I don’t understand it at all. [Laughs] It’s a little cliché to say this, but a job like this is difficult to come by. And there’s always something else to learn.

I am so confused about ‘Grey’s Anatomy’s Meredith and Derek. I thought that they did not get married, but only pretended to on a Post-It note. Yet everyone references them as man and wife. Are they really married, and if so when did that happen?

Trust your instincts: Mer/Der are not legally married. And a formal wedding ‘tween the two is likely never to be seen. “I get why the fans want it; I’d probably want it too if I was just watching,” show boss Shonda Rhimes told EW.com. “But I literally feel sick every time I think about Meredith in a big white poufy dress.”

Grey’s Anatomy – Interview with Sarah Drew

News that Grey’s Anatomy has promoted Jesse Williams (Jackson) and Sarah Drew (April) to full-time series regulars next season has elicited mixed reactions from viewers. Yay for Jackson—but not so much for his Mercy West cohort, who hasn’t exactly endeared herself to viewers. The fact that she nearly got Derek killed in last month’s harrowing hostage-themed finale certainly didn’t help. Among April’s biggest critics: Drew herself! In the following Q&A, the beloved Everwood alum weighs in on her polarizing alter ego, discusses the possibility of an April/Derek/Mer triangle, and reflects on her roller-coaster year.

Series creator Shonda Rhimes said she felt like April became “part of the tribe” in the finale. Did you feel the same way when you shot the episode?

SARAH DREW: I definitely had that feeling. April has been kind of annoying this past season. [Laughs] Just neurotic and really insecure, and this was the first time she was able to band together — both with Cristina and Meredith — to help solve a [crisis]. Most of my stuff before was with Patrick [Dempsey] and fawning over him awkwardly. So this was the first opportunity to actually bond in a positive way with them. They say tragedy brings people together, so I guess that’s what happened.

Fans have a love-hate thing going on with April. And it’s probably fair to say it became all hate when she nearly got McDreamy killed.

DREW: When we read that at the table read, I was like, “Oh, come on, guys, really? They already hate my character, now they’re going to hate her even more!” [Laughs]

Do you think she can be redeemed?

DREW: Lord, I hope so. [Laughs] I think [the heart-to-heart April had with Mer in the finale] was a gigantic step forward. The thing that’s fun about April is she creates controversy and that’s interesting to watch, even though people hate her for it. The people pleaser that I am, I always want everyone to like me and like my character, so it’s hard for me as an actress. But I think as a character she’s interesting, because she stirs stuff up between Meredith and Derek.

Do you think she will continue to stir stuff up between them?

DREW: This is nothing but my own speculation, but I don’t think that she’s going to come between Meredith and Derek. I don’t see it happening after everything that transpired in the finale. After her hearing how much Meredith is in love with Derek. After she witnessed the miscarriage. It just feels like April’s going to move on.

What has this past year been like for you? First you were hired, then you left, then you were rehired…

DREW: I definitely did my fair share of sweating in the past year. It’s all been really good news, though. Shonda wrote April for me because I’ve worked with her twice before. I walked into this role knowing it was only two episodes. I knew my character was going to be fired, so I wasn’t expecting anything beyond those two episodes. And then they called me the morning after the “firing episode” aired to check my availability and talk about a contract, and I was just floored. It was wonderful because when I came back to work I had so much support. A lot of the cast members were like, “We were rallying for you to stay. We’re so glad you’re back.” It was a wonderful surprise to move past those two episodes.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ exclusive: Jesse Williams gets full-time upgrade

Jesse-WilliamsImage Credit: Adam Larkey/ABCMcPrettyEyes is looking at a long-term future at Seattle Grace.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Grey’s Anatomy has officially upgraded Jesse Williams to a full-time series regular. His promotion kicks in this fall with the start of season 7.

Williams, who joined Grey’s last October as part of the polarizing Mercy West merger plot, was quickly pegged as the Invader Most Likely to See Another Season. Those hypnotic baby blues certainly didn’t hurt.

In my exclusive Q&A with Shonda Rhimes last month, the Grey’s boss all but confirmed that Williams — as well as fellow rookie Sarah Drew — would be back next fall. “April and Jackson have really been folded into the group,” she told me. “It’ll depend on what the studio and the network decide to do with those actors, but I fully advocate to have them [stick around].”

I’m told Drew’s deal for next season is still being worked on, so stay tuned.

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

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.

House Season 7 Spoilers: Exploring House & Cuddy’s Relationship

‘House’ scoop: Amber Tamblyn scrubs in!

Amber-Tamblyn

As I teased previously, with Olivia Wilde off House for a while shooting Cowboys & Aliens, the Fox hit will be temporarily adding a new female doc to the roster at Princeton Plainsboro. And now I can tell you who she is: Amber Tamblyn!

The erstwhile Joan of Arcadia, I’m told, will appear in multiple episodes as a whip-smart med student House (Hugh Laurie) recruits for his diagnostic team — despite the fact that she isn’t yet 100 percent qualified to treat patients. And, of course, what I didn’t have to be told was that the youngster will have to find a way to adjust to her new mentor’s unique bedside manner.

So what do you think? I’m pretty much sold on this casting. Although I do kinda wish the Emmy nominee was coming on board for more than a few episodes…

‘House’ exclusive: Huddy fans — your time has come!

by Michael Ausiello, Source: EW

SPOILER ALERT: If you have yet to watch tonight’s House finale, stop reading now. I repeat, if you have yet to watch tonight’s House finale, stop reading now. For the last time, if you have yet to watch tonight’s House finale, stop reading now. Everyone else, onward and downward…

Fi. Na. Lly. House went there. When last night’s season finale ended in a Huddy liplock — a real one this time, it bears mentioning! — it seemed as though Dr. Crankypants and Cuddy at last were going to give a relationship the ol’ college try. But looks, as we’ve learned the hard way, can be deceiving. Is the Fox hit just messing with our emotions again? To find out, I rang up exec producer Katie Jacobs, who wasn’t just forthcoming with the scoop, she was pretty free with the kinda scoop that’s all but guaranteed to blow your mind.

That was one hell of a final scene. What should we take away from it?
KATIE JACOBS:
This is real and something that they are going to try. It’s something they stayed away from for a long period of time because it’s dangerous and the consequences could be severe. But now they’re going to give it a try.

They’re going to make a go of a relationship?
JACOBS:
Absolutely. Yes.

What are we led to believe happened after the screen faded to black?
JACOBS:
That’s exactly the conversation we had. Does the audience want us to pick up two or three months later? Or is the audience interested in us [picking up right where we left off]? And it’s really dependent on the narrative. Last year when House checked himself into the psychiatric hospital, I felt like it wouldn’t be good enough for the audience just to see him come out the other end and [return] to Princeton Plainsboro. Even though they knew he would [eventually] return there, I wanted everybody to see the moment after.

So which scenario will you choose this time around?
JACOBS:
Put it this way… I’m certainly in the camp of not wanting to miss much after the fade to black. Because the truth is the challenges that are ahead for them are the things that kept them apart to begin with. It’s not chemistry or the spark. It’s “How are we going to deal with this? We’re going to be together. What does that look like?” Cuddy is his superior at the hospital. And she’s a mother. Those are the kind of things we’re going to have fun with.

I could be wrong but I think Huddy fans want to see a real, non-hallucinatory sex scene.
JACOBS:
I get it. We’re in the process of figuring all that out right now, so I don’t have an answer. But this isn’t just about the [season premiere]. This isn’t something that will work or fail in just one episode. We’re going to attempt to make a true exploration of this relationship.

Were you on set when that last scene was shot?
JACOBS:
Yes. It was amazing. Our prop guy, Eddie, had tears in his eyes. You never know how people are going to react to the story, but seeing Eddie with tears in his eyes and happy with the fact that House and Cuddy were finally going to give it a try was very satisfying.

Olivia Wilde to Take a Break from House

House – Olivia Wilde

Remember Thirteen’s mysterious request for time off on this week’s House finale? It makes a little more sense now.

Olivia Wilde will take a leave of absence from Season 7 of the Fox medical drama come fall because the actress is taking time off to star in the Jon Favreau directed film Cowboys & Aliens, according to Entertainment Weekly.

“Olivia will be there at the very beginning of the season, and then she will not be there for a period of time,” executive producer Katie Jacobs told the magazine.

Production on the sci-fi Western — which also stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Sam Rockwell — begins production next month and is expected to overlap with the new season of House by at least two months.

Desperate Housewives Season 7 Spoilers: Baby Switch, Whose? & Paul Young Returns!

Desperate Housewives – Secrets From The New Season

“Desperate Housewives” returns for its seventh season this fall and Executive Producer Marc Cherry tells ET, “The secrets get darker, the action gets juicier and I am going to try to make it sexier!”

ET was on Wisteria Lane as the seventh season began filming to get the inside scoop on what lies ahead for Gaby (Eva Longoria Parker), Bree (Marcia Cross), Susan (Teri Hatcher) and Lynette (Felicity Huffman).

“What we start to deal with in the first episode is the ramifications of something we have been holding back for six seasons,” Marc says. “[Gaby] finally finds out that Andrew [Shawn Pyfrom] — Bree’s son — ran over her mother-in-law. That starts to affect their friendship in a major way.”

That hit-and-run accident may be old news, but there will be another hit-and-run in the second episode of the new season, putting the two families into conflict a second time.

The sexier action — and Marc jokes that Bree may have a red bra in her future — will be added by Brian Austin Green, who will be a working-class guy who becomes Bree’s new love interest.

Also joining the cast this season is Vanessa Williams, who will be playing the wife of a professional athlete who is having marital problems.

“She has money and style but her background is different [than Gabby’s],” Marc says. “We are introducing her as Lynette’s best frenemy from college, so she comes and shines some light on Lynette’s choices. It is some of the best bitchy dialogue we have had on this show!”

Returning to Wisteria Lane after a term in prison is Paul Young [Mark Moses], who was framed by Felicia Tilman [Harriet Sansom Harris] for murder. Felicia disappeared after cutting off two of her fingers, making it appear as if Paul was responsible for her demise. Paul returned at the very end of season six, renting Susan and Mike’s [James Denton] house, now that finances have forced them to move into an apartment.

“We are going to find out how he was released from jail and that storyline will play out through the year,” Marc says.

And don’t be surprised if Betty White makes a visit to Wisteria Lane. She and Marc worked together on “Golden Girls,” and he says, “I adore Betty. If there is any way to do it, I would love to have Betty on the show. It is something that would make my heart very happy.”
“Desperate Housewives” returns for its seventh season on ABC on Sunday, Sept. 26 at 9 p.m.

Desperate Housewives – End Date is ‘in Negotiation’

“Desperate Housewives” doesn’t have a firm end date yet. It could in the relatively near future, though.

Creator Marc Cherry says that he can see the series lasting a couple more seasons, “but I don’t want to try and match ‘Gunsmoke’s’ record.”

“It’s in negotiation — that’s all I can tell you,” Cherry says of an end date for “Housewives.” “ABC is talking to people. … There are meetings going on with agents and stuff, but we’re just kind of here doing our work.”

Cherry has talked in the past about wanting to end the show after seven seasons; he later struck a deal to stay with the show through a ninth year, when his current deal with ABC Studios expires. (There have also been rumblings that the show might end after next season.)

He also says he hopes to keep the show’s principal cast of Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria Parker together until the end.

“That to me is absolutely the optimum,” Cherry says. “I’m aware that it’s very tricky to take beloved cast members [out of a show] when the premise of the show is it’s an ensemble. … So while I’m mindful that my gals have other careers going on, and they’re starting families and doing stuff like that — that they might have other interests that might take them away — my goal, and I’m going to work really hard, is to try to keep the core group together to the bitter end. I think that would be a lovely way to end the show.”

Season 7 of “Desperate Housewives” is set to premiere on Sunday, Sept. 26

Desperate Housewives – Frenemies, Paul Young and clean-shaven Carlos in Season 7

The producers of “Desperate Housewives” aren’t giving up whose baby was switched or why exactly Paul Young is returning to Wisteria Lane, but they did share a good amount about what we’ll see in the first part of Season 7 during a set visit Tuesday (July 27).

Read on for details about Vanessa Williams’ and Brian Austin Green’s characters, Teri Hatcher’s “shady” new boss and more.

Lynette’s friend

Williams plays Renee Perry, Lynette’s (Felicity Huffman) former college roommate who moves to Wisteria Lane after hitting a rough patch with her husband. “The have sort of a frenemy relationship,” executive producer Bob Daily says. “Renee had gone off to New York and married a very wealthy pro athlete, a baseball player. She’s always been a little more wealthy than Lynette, had more of a jet-set, no-kids kind of lifestyle. … We’ll continue to play that friend/bitter rival relationship with them.”

Adds Williams herself, “She’s very competitive with Lynette, and they’ve got — I wouldn’t say a tempestuous relationship, but it gets a little rough at times. A lot of people around the neighborhood notice how we go at it. But it’s also fun — Felicity loves it because she gets a chance to be funny. We have some nice quips.”

Bree’s man

Green has joined the cast as a contractor whom the newly single Bree (Marcia Cross) hires — and who soon becomes a person of interest on the lane. “She and [Renee] will go after him at the same time; there’s a little competition going on there,” Daily says. “But we’re really playing out what it’s like for Bree to be dating again after so long, and to be dating a younger, blue-collar guy.”

Paul’s return

The season will pick up pretty much right where last year left off, with Paul (Mark Moses) having just returned to the neighborhood. “He’s got a grudge against the neighborhood, he’s got a plan, he’s got a wife — we just cast the wife, Emily Bergl [‘Men in Trees’]. … She’s a woman who started corresponding with a convicted murderer in prison. They got married while he was still in, then she was surprised to find out he was released.”

Susan’s move

Last season’s end also saw Susan (Hatcher) move off Wisteria Lane, and she’ll be trying to figure out a way to move back. “We have her getting involved in a sort of shady Internet venture that’s run by Lainie Kazan,” who’s guesting in several episodes, Daily says. She’ll also be Paul’s landlord: “That’s going to be kind of an awkward relationship for everyone. … We play that for a lot of creepy comedy in the first couple episodes.

Other bits:

– Creator Marc Cherry says Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira) will begin the season clean-shaven as a result of him doing a production of “A Streetcar Named Desire” over the hiatus. He asked Cherry if he should wear a fake goatee for a while, and Cherry said no, but “I hadn’t seen him for a while without it, and he looks like he’s 14 years old.”
– Cherry also says that now that Paul has returned, he’d like to see his son Zach (Cody Kasch) return as well. Nothing is in place yet, but Cherry hopes to book Kasch for later in the season.

Desperate Housewives – Info on Vanessa Williams’ character // <![CDATA[//

Vanessa Williams has inked a lucrative contract to stay within the ABC family as the newest of Wisteria Lane’s Desperate Housewives. Now here are the exclusive first details about a character that couldn’t be more different from Vanessa’s Ugly Betty witch, Wilhelmina Slater. First off, she sounds about as desperate as any housewife who has ever lived on the Lane.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that Vanessa will play Renee Filmore-Jones. She is an old college chum of Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman). They were rivals way back in the ’80s, and we can certainly expect that relationship to continue in Fairview. (Oh, please give us flashbacks of these two duking it out in their dormitory!)
Renee has been married for years to a handsome, hunky man (likely an athlete) named Keith Jones (I’m so picturing NYPD Blue hunk Henry Simmons in this role, though it’s yet to be cast). They have no kids, meaning Renee has spent all these years just being a housewife supporting her man. But she’s reached a time in her life when she wants to do more.
Oh, one last thing: she has a secret. Who on Wisteria Lane doesn’t?

Desperate Housewives – Season 7 – New Roles and Recasting // <![CDATA[//

Who is being replaced on Desperate Housewives? Going into its seventh season, the ABC series is looking for a new Penny, the daughter of Tom and Lynette Scavo. Kendall Applegate, 11, who took over the role from toddler twins two seasons ago when the show jumped five years into the future, is out. The search is now on for a new 12-year-old actress to take over the role.
In addition, returning villain Paul Young (Mark Moses) has replaced his late wife Mary Alice (Brenda Strong) with a new young bride named Beth. While serving time in prison, Paul was contacted by a quirky lady around age 30, who eventually became his new Mrs. Beth is covering up a painful past, which we can assume Paul preyed upon.
And lastly, a new hunk is coming to Wisteria Lane who sounds like a younger version of James Denton’s Mike Delfino. Mike will be living off the Lane in a cheap apartment with wife Susan (Teri Hatcher). The new guy is a 30-year-old playboy apparently named Keith (which incidentally was the name a source told me was going to be used for Vanessa Williams’ character’s husband).
Excited about these additions? Which housewife should the new hunk seduce? Perhaps Bree (Marcia Cross), since she will be Orson-less? And with the show going to the effort to replace Penny, what do you hope they’ll do with this character who has long been part of the background scenery?

Season 7: Baby Switch & Paul Young

Source: EW.com

What I loved most about last night’s goodbye to season 6 was the delicious setup it gave to season 7, potentially making the next year one of the series’ best. Two huge storylines were put into motion, and they seem like good ones. First, we’ve got a baby switch coming on the Lane this fall. Specifically, last night, an old nurse at Fairview Memorial, Teresa Pruitt, confessed on her deathbed that there’d been a baby switch on her watch. We weren’t given any clues to work with about who it was, besides the news that it’s someone on Wistera Lane, natch.

Now, the Desperate producers could take this storyline in one of two directions. It could concern a switch between a child of the main housewives and someone random — or, with the potential to be much juicier, a switch between two children of the main housewives. I was thinking about whose kids are around the same age and sex and wasn’t coming up with much. I had the thought, however, that this seemingly random storyline could have something to do with next season’s other big storyline — the return of Mary Alice’s husband Paul. See, do you all remember their creepy son Zach? Could it be that, maybe, Andrew and Zach were switched at birth? I have a feeling that the baby switch has something to do with Zach or Paul. Actually it must — otherwise, it just won’t be as interesting.

But anyway, the second storyline for next season — Paul’s return — should be good. That the producers are dipping back into stories from earlier seasons is a good sign — mostly because those seasons were much better than the last couple. I say, let’s bring some of that yesteryear magic back! Paul moving in clarified why Susan and Mike and MJ had to move off of the lane — mostly so that Mary Alice’s husband would have somewhere to live. Although it’s not exactly clear about why, for story purposes, Paul needed Susan and Mike’s house specifically. Couldn’t the producers have just created a new house on the Lane for him to live in and left Susan and Mike there? I’m betting there’s a sick and twisted reason why Paul needed that house, and we’ll find out more about that come September. Also, bringing Paul back means that the delightfully nasty Felicia might also make a return appearance.

Armchair Casting Director: ‘Desperate Housewives’

desperate-housewivesImage Credit: Florian Schneider/ABCWisteria Lane is getting a transfusion of new blood this fall in the form of four new characters (not including the incoming diva played by Vanessa Williams). Deets on the rookie quartet (and casting tips) are below…

Maxine: A sweet lady in the 60-80 year-old age range. Maxine is Mike and Susan’s new neighbor in their apartment building, and she has an unusual job that brings in some additional income.
Armchair Casting Director suggestion: Santa Barbara‘s Judith McConnell

Beth: This quirky, sweet thirtysomething woman was Paul Young’s prison pen pal-cum-wife. She’s damaged emotionally but also capable of humor.
Armchair Casting Director suggestion: Charlotte Ross.

Penny Scavo: Tom and Lynette’s 12-year-old daughter is being recast. Not sure why.
Armchair Casting Director suggestion: I’ve got nothin’.

Keith: Hot, sexy, 30-year-old contractor. He’s a charming playboy who turns up on Wisteria Lane. Think Mike Delfino 15 years ago.
Armchair Casting Director suggestion: Eric Winter

Desperate Housewives – An Old Baddie Returns!

Desperate Housewives is adding a new villain to Wisteria Lane. The twist? It’s an old villain!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Mark Moses is slated to reprise his role as Mary Alice’s creepy widower, Paul, on a full-time basis next season.

The character was last seen in season 3 when Mike paid him a visit in jail, where he’s serving time for murdering poor Martha Huber. After leaving Housewives, Moses joined the cast of Mad Men as Herman “Duck” Phillips.

Earlier this year, Housewives creator Marc Cherry hinted to me that he was thinking of bringing on a new vixen to succeed Nicollette Sheridan. “We hope to add a troublemaker,” he clarified, “but I’m not so sure it’ll be a woman.” Sneaky!

Thoughts? Anxious to see what trouble Paul will stir up this time around? Sound off below!

‘Desperate Housewives’ – ‘I Guess This is Goodbye’ Recap (Season Finale)

Desperate Housewives(S06E23) “I guess everyone will be surprised to see you again.” – Lee to the not-so-new new Wisteria Lane resident

It may not have been the most action-packed and thrilling season finale we’ve had for the series, but it was still compelling TV. We witnessed a birth and a death while hearing a shocking secret and noticing the return of a character.

The worst event of the episode was when my ABC station decided to freeze and go to a black screen for a few seconds as Bree made her request to Andrew and when the shocking secret was revealed. If that was the case for you too, I’ve gathered the needed intel for us to be fully in the know as it will be a major storyline next season. That and the return of the person who shall not be named! Lynette and Eddie

That storyline’s ending left me wanting more as I thought it was too easy and quick of a wrap up. I get that Eddie wanted someone to finally be proud of him and that’s why he agreed to turn himself in but I expected more action from this. We are talking about somewhat of a serial killer after all. How about showing the cops smashing the door, cuffing Eddie and saving Lynette?

Susan and Mike

Don’t be afraid, the Delfinos will still be around next season. Actually, I believe they may be involved in next season’s year-long mystery. More on that in a bit.

The Bolens

Bravo Angie for being one brilliant bomb maker! She put the bomb in the detonator! It was risky as she could have been next to Patrick but the best bet to kill the less people. Bye bye Patrick! I’ve enjoyed Angie, so I’m glad she survived and got a happy ending with Nick. As for Danny, we may see him again next season since he is off to New York City where Ana is.

Bree, Andrew and Orson

It wouldn’t be surprising if the Solises decide to not talk to Bree and family at the start of next season. However, it’s pretty sure that something bad will make them bond again eventually. I felt a bit dumb when Orson told Bree that Andrew committed exactly the same crime he (Orson) committed. Why didn’t it even cross my mind when we were reminded of Andrew running over Carlos’ mother last week?!

It’s understandable that Bree wanted to protect her son but Orson was right that she should have asked Andrew the same thing she asked of him, her husband: pay for his crime. Since Shawn Pyfrom, who plays Andrew, is leaving the series, it’s a safe bet to assume that Andrew will indeed go to jail. Will Orson go back to Bree now that she made things right? I doubt he’ll run back to her. He’ll make her wait a bit.

Teresa’s secret

As I’ve said in my intro, I missed most of the scene at the end where we discover the secret. I did hear that there was a baby switch. After doing a quick research, it seems that I didn’t miss that much of the secret.

I don’t remember if Susan and Mike ever told the sex of MJ when she was pregnant. Right now, my money is on MJ having been switched as a baby while in the hospital. Could it be that MJ was switched with Paige, Dave’s deceased daughter? Or maybe MJ and Roy’s deaf grandson? Yes, it would be difficult to switch a boy and a girl but Susan has been rather unlucky since the start of the series so anything could have happened, no? Plus switching a boy and a girl would explain why the nurse knew for sure the babies were switched.

I doubt it’s one of the older kids (Julie, Danielle, Andrew) since they’ve pretty much gone from the show. But what a twist would it be if Andrew and Sam got switched!!! The Scavos definitely look all alike so it’s less likely it’s one of them. Maybe Penny? It could be possible that one of the Solises kids got switched but the sisters look alike.

Who do you think was switched as a baby? For sure it must involved at least one of the show’s main kids, otherwise it wouldn’t be that powerful of a mystery!

Desperate Housewives – End of Season 6

‘Desperate Housewives’ scoop: Vanessa Williams moving to Wisteria Lane!

There goes the neighborhood! An ABC rep confirms that when Desperate Housewives returns next season, its cast will include — as a series regular, no less — Vanessa Freakin’ Williams!

Series creator Marc Cherry told us previously that he was looking for a new troublemaker to fill the void left by the demise of Nicollette Sheridan’s Edie. And seriously, could he — or anyone — do any better than the actress formerly known as Ugly Betty‘s queen of mean, Wilhelmina?

Didn’t think so.

Though other deets are at the moment scarce, TV Guide Magazine (which first broke the news) reports that her conniving character won’t be at the center of next season’s big mystery.

Exclusive: Kyle MacLachlan to exit ‘Desperate Housewives’

Kyle-MacLachlan

Image Credit: Danny Feld/ABCWisteria Lane is about to lose another longtime resident: Kyle MacLachlan is leaving Desperate Housewives after four years of playing Orson Hodge, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Exit rumors have swirled around the woefully underused MacLachlan for the better part of the past two years. Speculation picked up again after Sunday’s season finale, during which Orson — disappointed that Bree would allow herself to be blackmailed by Sam — abruptly moved out.

I’m told MacLachlan will likely return for an episode or two next fall to tie up the Orson/Bree story.

MacLachlan’s decampment brings to three the number of series regulars coming off the Housewives payroll. He joins the dearly departed Drea de Matteo and Dana Delany.

Thoughts? Is this something that should have happened two years ago when Orson started to drift onto the back burner? Will the return of Mark Moses and the recent addition of Vanessa Williams more than fill the void?

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

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

One Tree Hill – Season 7 – Haley’s Sister Spoilers Are Revealed


Korbi Ghosh from Zap2it got talk with one of the new girls, Shantel VanSanten who will be appearing on the upcoming 7th season of CW’s “One Tree Hill” as Haley’s sister who is a photographer. Shantel spoke a bit about how her and Haley’s relationship will be on the show.

She said, “yes, I play Haley’s older sister. I’m a photographer. And I think we both have that artistic side. Her being a singer, we have that same mentality in common and I think we’ve always been close for that reason.

But I got married when I was younger, so I have a whole other relationship and whole other life. I come back to Tree Hill just like a lot of people go home to kind of figure life out. And I think that Haley becomes my best friend, the person that I would call about everything.”

She then commented on how her character will allow us to see a different side of Haley that we’ve never seen before. She stated,“Yeah, I think that it’s fun to bring Haley’s sister in, because you end up seeing a different side of Haley.

You know what I mean? You’ll see different things you maybe wouldn’t have seen before because her sister’s around and there’s that sister bond and you tell each other secrets and expose things you wouldn’t have otherwise.

Me and my own sister are so close and Joy talked to me about it, she wanted to know what my relationship with her was like and we discussed little ticks that sisters have and it’s really been awesome. She’s awesome to work with.”

Next, Shantel shares how she arrives in town,and what her reasons are for coming. She said, ”I come for Jamie’s birthday. But I think when you’re in your 20s, you go through stuff. Is my life going in the right direction? Am I doing the right thing? Is this what I want for the rest of my life, with everything, you question your job, your love life. So I think maybe she comes to town trying to figure some things out and through her relationship with her sister and everybody else in Tree Hill, hopefully she’ll find the answers.”

She also talks about collaborating with Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush) on the show. She said, “I get to collaborate with Sophia’s character Brooke, because she has a clothing line. There are a lot of relationships that she gets to come back to and be a part of that world.”

Then Mark Schwahn,one of the show’s writers jumped in and commented on if Haley’s sister might have a love interest on the show even though she’s married. He said, “I’ve never endorsed that. But, having said that, if issues arise in her marriage, then that is interesting to me. If someone is genuinely not happy in their marriage, when is it okay to start looking elsewhere?

I don’t know if that’s necessarily the road we’ll go down with Shantel’s character, Quinn, but as a storyline and as drama for the show, I think that’s interesting. “

The 7th season of “One Tree Hill” is set to premiere Monday September 14,2009 at 7pm central time on the CW.

One Tree Hill – Casting News

Although Peyton Sawyer (Hilarie Burton) and Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray) no longer call Tree Hill, North Carolina home, Peyton’s fledgling record label will remain open for business when the prime time drama returns to The CW this fall.

Creator Mark Schwahn tells TVGuideMagazine.com that India de Beaufort will join the cast as Miranda Stone, “a smart, successful record executive who has been sent to Tree Hill to oversee the day to day operations of boutique label Red Bedroom Records.” Beaufort is the latest in a long line of new actors including Robert Buckley, Shantel VanSanten and Jana Kramer to round out the cast for Season 7.

One Tree Hill – Casting News

A One Tree Hill rep is now confirming what I first hinted at in Ask Ausiello: The bitch is back! Danneel Harris has closed a deal to reprise her role as pot-stirrer Rachel Gatina in at least seven episodes next season, beginning with eppy 7.02. Harris made her Tree Hill debut as Brooke’s high school nemesis in season 3 but wasn’t made a series regular until season 4. She was written out in season 5 after only a handful of episodes, an apparent victim of the show’s four-year flash forward.

In other Tree Hill news, the last of next season’s new contract roles has gone to Nuevo 90210 grad Jana Kramer. She’ll play Alexis, a model who becomes the new face of Brooke’s clothing line. As previously reported, Lipstick Jungle’s Robert Buckley and relative newcomer Shantel VanSanten are also joining the cast as Nathan’s sports agent and Haley’s sister Source: EW

Who are they casting as Alexis on One Tree Hill? No one has snagged that role yet. Alexis doesn’t appear in the first episode of One Tree Hill season seven, so producers are takin’ their time to find the right person. Source: Kristin on E!Online

Do you know if One Tree Hill plans to cast an African-American or other minority in any of the roles being added? MATT: Thus far, you’re 0-for-2 on that wish, seeing as Robert Buckley and Shantel VanSanten have been cast as Nathan’s agent and Haley’s sister, Quinn, respectively. As for “Alex” (the supermodel fronting Brooke’s new clothing line), Tree Hill is looking at “all ethnicities,” so there’s some hope there. For what’s it worth, I can offer up this concrete piece of guest casting: NFL legend Jerry Rice will appear as himself in the Sept. 14 season opener. Source: TV Guide Online

‘One Tree Hill’ exclusive: Meet Haley’s sister!

Shantel-VanSanten_l One Tree Hill‘s post Peyton-Lucas makeover continues: Sources confirm to me exclusively that relative newcomer Shantel VanSanten has been tapped to play the series regular role of Quinn, one of Haley’s free-spirited older sisters. The character comes to Tree Hill with a wounded heart and in search of someone new to shag something new. VanSanten, who will be seen in the upcoming Final Destination reboot, joins fellow Tree Hill virgin Robert Buckley as the newest additions to the show’s cast. The Lipstick Jungle hottie is playing Nathan’s sports agent.

Lipstick Jungle‘s Robert Buckley Moves to Tree Hill

Robert Buckley, who famously played Kim Raver’s Lipstick Jungle boy toy and subsequently did a turn on Privileged, will resurface this fall on the CW’s One Tree Hill. Buckley will play Clayton, the sports agent who takes on NBA-bound Nathan as a client and friend, says the Hollywood Reporter. Brian Austin Green was until recently eyed for this series regular role, but ultimately a deal could not be worked out. Buckley’s Tree Hill gig stems from a holding deal he had with Privileged producer Warner Bros. TV.

One Tree Hill is adding three new characters for Season 7, as the show moves on without longtime leads Hilarie Burton and Chad Michael Murray. The two characters remaining to be cast are Haley’s sister, Quinn, and a supermodel who goes to work for Brooke.

Brianaustingreen Though Brian Austin Green was reported to be in advanced talks to join The CW’s “One Tree Hill” earlier this week, sources close to the production tells me the man — whom I prefer to call “David Silver” — has passed on the part. Word is, The CW made B.A.G. a very healthy offer — I’m hearing $75 Gs an episode… which is what Chad Michael Murray was making, by the way — but Green ultimately decided “OTH” wasn’t for him. Hey, maybe it’s because he’s still holding out hope for a midseason “Body Politic” pick up!

I must confess, I’m kind of loving the idea of Brian Austin Green on One Tree Hill. Ausiello: Well, I hope you don’t love it too much, because I’m hearing the deal may be unraveling. Word is Green’s reps got spooked by the negative spin some bloggers were putting on their client doing OTH. As a result, they may be getting cold feet. Personally, I can’t see Green walking away from a gig that could potentially fetch him north of $1.5 million. Of course, that’s the same figure Chad Michael Murray said no to, so who knows? In their defense, $75K a week — after taxes and agency fees — does not go very far these days. Source: The Ausiello Files

Named Clayton, Brian Austin Green’s character is enjoying the spoils that come from being a wealthy, handsome single guy.

There is a chance that will be climbing to “” as a regular in the seventh season. He is slated to take the role of Clayton, a “young and brash” sports agent who represents Nathan’s basketball interest. The casting news is not yet formally announced by The CW or the execs but sources are telling EW that “they’re ironing out a few issues, but it’s pretty much a done deal.” This has been considered as a move which is apt to compensate the lost of two lovable actors in the series, and . More about Clayton, the character is in his 20s, and is described in the casting call as “fiercely protective” of Nathan. However, Clayton will not be the only newbie in the series for the show was also casting Haley’s older sister named Quinn and a model for Brooke’s clothing line, Alexis. Brian Austin Green was Derek Reese in “” until the show got canceled by FOX due to mild rating. He was then signed as the lead of The CW’s “The Body Politic” but the drama does not make it to the Fall 2009 schedule.

One Tree Hill – Exclusive first look at Season 7 New Characters

Here is the first casting call for Season 7 of One Tree Hill. Filming will begin on 17th June currently.
[QUINN]
Mid to late 20s, very pretty. One of Haley’s older sisters, Quinn is a free spirit but can also be dependable and kind. Strong-willed, self-assured but also self-effacing, Quinn is facing a transitional time in her life, one that will bring her to Tree Hill with a wounded heart and in search of something more…SERIES REGULAR.

[ALEXIS]
20s, gorgeous. Alexis is a model/actress and the new face of Brooke’s clothing line. Alexis is an adrenaline junkie and a bit of a diva who is used to getting her way. Book smart and street wise, Alexis uses her wiles to navigate the sometimes treacherous waters of her profession. She has also never met a party she didn’t like, a habit that may inhibit or accelerate her transition from model to actress, depending on who crosses her path sptv050769. PLEASE SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES…SERIES REGULAR.

[CLAYTON]
Late 20s, handsome. A young and brash sports agent who represents Nathan Scott’s basketball interests, Clayton is a rising star at his agency and has become a close friend, ally, business partner and advisor to Nathan. A bit of a lothario, Clayton unapologetically enjoys the spoils that are available to a young, wealthy, handsome single guy, while always separating business from pleasure, and remaining fiercely protective of Nathan. PLEASE SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES…SERIES REGULAR.

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

Onetreehillwedding_l It looks like One Tree Hill newlyweds Peyton and Lucas are about to embark on a permanent honeymoon. Sources confirm that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton, whose characters tied the knot in last night’s penultimate episode, will not be returning for the show’s seventh season next fall. The CW is expected to formally announce their departures next Thursday at its upfront presentation. Murray and Burton have been engaged in rather high-profile contract negotiations for the past several months. Ultimately, a deal couldn’t be worked out and both actors will make their final appearances in next Monday’s season finale. To fill the void next season, a Hill insider tells me that two new characters will be introduced. Additionally, Austin Nichols (Julian) is being promoted to a series regular.
