In the future Sylar is not only living with his son Noah in the Bennet house, but he has Mr. Muggles. Will the violations never end? Actually, we'll see that Sylar has become a new man. As Zachary Quinto told me when I visited the set during the production of episode four, "I believe that there may be some waffle-making in this episode. This is an alternative sort of reality—you catch glimpses of times that may or may not actually come to fruition, but that are possibilities."

Lynn: I'm dying for some solid Lost scoop! Specifically about the Left Behinds, is there anything can you give me?!
They're going to make us sweat out the fate of Jin. We won't see him at all for the first three episodes, and it's not until episodes four and five that we'll really understand what happened to him when the freighter exploded. I am actually slightly concerned that he's dead and just hanging out on the Island in tangible-ghost form à la Jack's dad. And if that's the case, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, I am coming for you.
Rebecca in Ipswich, Mass: I'm dying for Lost!
Me, too, and hey, this just in (literally as I was hitting the button to publish this): I'm now hearing from sources that Jin will be found Leo DiCaprio-in-Titanic style, floating on a door. Alive or dead? We shall see!
Marc in San Diego: Dexter please!
Dexter is going to do a bad, bad thing in the next episode, and Jimmy Smits is going to love him for it. It's insane.
Wanda2Saints: So what's up with Hiro and Ando?
Hiro and Ando are headed to the lockup known as Level Five (where Angela and her cronies keep the likes of Sylar and other villains), but they are not going of their own accord...
Mike in Mesa, Ariz.: Will Kristen Bell be in any of the future Heroes episodes, or did her arc complete with the season-three premiere?
Kristen Bell will be definitely back, and when she returns, we see that Elle has quite literally be on the fritz—her power keeps overloading and blowing out of control—and she'll turn to Claire for help.
Riley in Dexter, Maine: Chuck comes back tonight! Tell me you have some scoop!
Chuck and Sarah are in for a roller coaster this season: They get together because they think Chuck is going to be free, they flirt with third parties (her ex-BF and his ex-roomie Bryce Larkin and Melinda Clarke as foreign operative Sasha Banacheck), and then they realize that there's no getting out of it: Sarah has to be Chuck's protector and not girlfriend. Wahh! Also, Lester (Vik Sahay) operates like a crack-addled Dwight Schrute when he becomes assistant manager of Buy More, and it's pretty funny...
J.R. in Oceanside, Calif.: I'm so bummed on Thursdays now with no new Burn Notice eps. Can you tell me anything about the winter eps to tide me over?
According to Tricia Helfer, "Carla's going to get a little rattled—it's unlike how we've seen her before, a little bit off her game. But she responds quickly and gets back to her regular self." And if you didn't see it already, check out my dish that either Michael Weston or Carla are getting shot!
Fawn: What we can expect for Sam this season on Supernatural?
After seeing Thursday's episode, "In the Beginning," I think it's fair to say that this season Sam has a problem, and that it will be the major arc of the year, much in the way Dean's damnation arc played out through most of last season. It's a bit of a heartbreaker, not to mention practically a love letter from Kripke to all you Winchester-mythology-lovin' fans.
Meredith in La Jolla, Calif.: Got any goodies on Sons of Anarchy? What's up with this Agent Kohn guy?
According to Charlie Hunnam, "Kohn was definitely part of Tara's life in the past, and he is a guy that she is finished with, but he's not really taking no for an answer. Over the course of a couple of episodes, it becomes more and more evident that she has this secret, and once the secret unravels, I decide that maybe I should intervene a little bit. It gets pretty spicy between us." And by spicy he means there will be mondo violence.
Sarah in Buffalo, N.Y.: Any scoop on True Blood?
I am obsessed!Nelsan Ellis, who plays Lafayette, told me a "big name" is going to be introduced as Lafayette's vampire-blood supplier and boyfriend. Guesses?
Fabricio from San Francisco: Do you have any information about John and Cameron's relationship on upcoming episodes of Terminator?
Don't get your hopes up for anything too explicit—John is focused on Riley this season. Thomas Dekker told the crowd at the Golden Apple fan event that he enjoyed playing John's "inner emotional battle" with his feelings for Riley. In other John news, apparently episode five is a big one for John and Derek's relationship. According to Brian Austin Green, it's good, but, "All I can say is that it's 52 minutes and sponsored by Dodge." Hee.

Episode 3x02 "Finding Freebo"
Dexter and Rita have to make a big decision about their family, forcing Dexter to think about what it means to be responsible for kids. Is he ready to commit to this new family?

As a result, Debra and the Homicide department are tasked to find Freebo. Debra, through her supposedly dirty partner, Quinn, is introduced to a C.I. and musician named Anton, in the hopes of drumming up a lead on where Freebo may be. With all of these hunters in play, can Dexter find Freebo before anyone else?

Terminator's Jones Reveals Spoilers
Richard T. Jones, who plays FBI agent James Ellison on Fox's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, told SCI FI Wire (spoilers ahead!) that his character will take the job as private security for Zeira Corp., the company run by Catherine Weaver (Shirley Manson) and a precursor to Skynet. Weaver was revealed to be a liquid-metal Terminator in the season premiere and approached Ellison in the most recent episode, "The Mousetrap," which aired Sept. 22. "I end up working with Shirley Manson, for her [character]'s company, which is a lot better for me, because they have money," Jones said in an interview at Fox's party to celebrate the fall season in Hollywood earlier this month.
"They pay me with nice stuff. I get nice suits. I sell out for the money. No, but I sell out for better resources so I can find out a little bit more about what Terminators are, how they run and why they're here." Jones added that Ellison does not know he is in fact working for a Terminator. In a separate interview that night, series creator Josh Friedman said that he wanted to twist audience expectations that Ellison would team up with the good guys. "It sort of came out of where we were at the end of last season," Friedman said. "We were like, 'OK, what are we going to do with him now that he knows what he knows?' I think everybody sort of assumed now that he knows there are Terminators, he's just going to go team up with the Connors and become more of a student to them, which is why I really didn't want to do that. I figured that's what we all expect. There are other ways for him to get through the day and other motivations for him and curiosities."
When Ellison meets up with the Connors in subsequent episodes, it makes for a more exciting confrontation. "The first meeting is with John [Thomas Dekker], actually, and it's not what you would call a good meeting," Jones said. "He comes with Cameron [the cyborg played by Summer Glau]. Put it this way: He comes with someone. He's not just coming by himself to say hi, so it's an interesting meeting, and I get the worse end of it." Ellison has already dealt with the Terminator Cromartie (Garret Dillahunt) and will face more.
"Before I meet Cameron, I come to meet a couple more Terminators," Jones said. "I met Garrett, and I meet another Terminator before I meet Cameron." Friedman added that upcoming episodes will focus more on the Terminator characters. "Episode four we'll find out a lot about Cameron's backstory," Friedman said. "We've got some good future stuff coming up. It's all very intense action episodes with Garret Dillahunt's character, Cromartie, stepping up the hunt." Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT
Claire's Heading for Mommy Dearest: Claire's going to be dead set on a mission to fight back after her Sylar encounter. And guess who's going to teach her? Biomom! Yes, as you've seen, Jessalyn Gilsig (Meredith) is back in the next episode, and it turns out she knows a thing or two about combat. (Perhaps Claire would feel less violated if she knew that was her only her uncle engaging in a little friendly brain-picking? Yeah, probably not.)
Ali Larter Will Be Called "The Ice Queen." She will be bitchy, she will be lethal and she will be promptly hopping in the sack with Nathan Petrelli for some decidedly un-chilly action.
It Won't Be All Roses and Sunshine for Peter and Sylar: "We do have a couple of scuffles," Milo teases of what's ahead for his character and his new bro.
Angela Petrelli Has to be Evil: When asked if Angela's good or bad, Cristine offers this glimpse of what's ahead: "As of this volume, none of that applies. It's all up in the air. Nothing is as it seems. You will totally surprised by everything, on every level. It's all about good and evil and all of us walking that strange line between good and evil and who is going to going to fall into the good category?and who is going to fall into the bad, and really stay there. It's a balancing act through the entire Volume, and it's so good."
And oh yeah, and...
More Petrellis Will Be Revealed.
Petra in Yakima, Wash.: Can you tell me any more about the nature of Ben's plan on Lost?
That's just what I asked Evangeline Lilly yesterday at the Emmys, and she told me, "Hmmm? Is Ben's plan's coming together? Is Ben's plan comprehensible is the question? Can anyone make sense of Benjamin Linus?" Ah, sounds like a classic Lost brainteaser! I also ran into Michael Emerson at the HBO party (he and his wife Carrie Preston are an adorable couple BTW) and asked him how Ben was going to get everyone to go along, and he said, "Oh, it's not a question of why they should go along, it's a question of do they want to survive." In the words of the great thinker Shaggy: Zoinks!
Min in Cedar Rapids, Iowa: Kristin! Do you know anything more about the Battlestar Galactica movies, especially the Cylon-centric one?
According to the lovely Tricia Helfer, "The movie is called The Plan. It deals with the Cylon perspective on the world of Battlestar Galactica. The Cylons have always said they had a plan, and this elaborates on that."
Cate: Please tell me that it's not true that Cameron is going to end up pregnant on House!
Because I live to serve you guys, I asked Jennifer Morrison about this at the Emmys yesterday, and she said, "Is that a rumor? I hadn't even heard that! I learn so much on the red carpet! As far as I know, Cameron is not pregnant, but they are very, very secretive about the storylines on the show, so if she is or will be, they haven't told me yet. There's a lot of other great stuff this season: There is a hostage situation at one point; we'll learn a little bit more about what's going on with Chase and Cameron, and there's some flirting between House and Cuddy."
Eliza in Paris, Texas: House!
Lisa Edelstein, who could not have looked more exquisite in Reem Acra and black-and-white diamonds, told me yesterday at the Emmys: "In the first few episodes, there's not a lot of Cuddy, but then some really wonderful stuff happens and I'm very excited about it. There's some really great interaction between House and Cuddy, and Cuddy, of course, suffers and suffers some more, but it's fun, because I get to work with Hugh. I love him." Also, I ran into Peter Jacobson at the L.A. Confidential party this weekend and he told me we'll see an episode where House really gets on Taub for being a dirty little cheater. Poor Rachel Taub (Jennifer Crystal), who will definitely pop up this season to deal with this adultery business.
Nancy in Boston: Even though Chuck Bartowski is adorable, my heart belongs to Captain Awesome! When's the wedding?
At Thursday's NBC Fall Premiere Party, Ryan McPartlin (Awesome) told me that the return of Morgan Fairchild as his mother puts a damper on their wedding plans. And his best-man pick? "I think it would have to be Chuck. It can't be Morgan. I'm going to make him the ring bearer!" But what Ryan is really hoping for this season is a Captain Awesome crossover into Chuck's world of espionage. "It would be very cool if I get deep into it and he's got to get my back and save me somehow, but I take all the credit!"
Debbie in Seattle: What's going to happen to Booth and Bones when she dates his brother Jared [Brendan Fehr]?
I ran into David Boreanaz and he told me, "I know she goes on a date with him (Jared), and it doesn't go too well. It's not that I really struggle with it. I think I'm more or less struggling with the kind of person he is and how he would end up getting her, maybe, into trouble." For the love of the fans and all that is holy: Stick with Booth, Bones!

Later, Suresh’s (Sendhil Ramamurthy) urge to correct research errors puts Maya (Dania Ramirez), among others, in a sticky situation. Linderman (guest star Malcolm McDowell) advises Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) to stick by Tracy (Ali Larter), seeing that they could accomplish great things together.

Episode 4x05 "Metamophosis"
SAM AND DEAN ARGUE ABOUT KILLING A MAN WHO IS TURNING INTO AN ANIMAL
Sam (Jared Padalekci) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) discover that Jack Montgomery (guest star Dameon Clark), a family man, is turning into a Rugaru, a creature that starts as a human but changes into a flesh-eating monster. The people who are infected don't understand what is happening until they turn into cannibals and eat another person. Understanding what it is like to be a victim of a twisted destiny, Sam believes he can reason with Jack and convince him to control his urges. Dean doesn't think Jack's animalistic behavior can be subdued and decides the only honorable thing to do is to shoot him. Kim Manners directed the episode written by Cathryn Humphris
