Dexter Interview!


Small bit from Julie Benz regarding Dexter.....
"When you play a character as long as I have played Rita, she starts to live in you. The character's memories are your memories and she's kind of just there," Benz says. "So then to go off and play other characters; it's nice to stretch other muscles and try new things."

As for her alter ego, Benz says Rita and Dexter will begin trying new things as they begin to deal with their marital problems, and particularly Rita's recent discovery of Dexter's apartment."

"You're going to see them go to therapy and really start dealing with their issues. They have their issues and Rita is not completely innocent," Benz says. "Rita suffers from wanting Dexter to change a little bit ... she has faults and we get to see a little bit more of what those are throughout the season."

Another plot twist that will affect Dexter, and subsequently Rita's, struggle to balance work and family? Dexter's recent revelation that the Trinity Killer is a family man just like himself. "We get to see more of Dexter's fascination with that and how does he pull it off," Benz says. "There are some big realizations that happen throughout that journey."

Benz was tight-lipped on what those realizations might be but says the journey will lead to a shocking season finale."It's going to be a very monumental episode and it shocked us as a cast when we got the script," Benz says. "It changes the show at its core and it's insanely intense."

Sanctuary Ashley Scoop!





Syfy's Sanctuary did it: Last Friday's episode killed off Ashley (Emilie Ullerup).

Or did it? "Nobody dies in sci-fi," creator Damian Kindler said with a laugh. "No body. Habeas corpus."

In last week's ep, "Eulogy," Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) and Will (Robin Dunner) failed to find Ashley's body after she apparently gave her life to avoid killing her mom, and everyone accepted that Ashley had truly gone to that big abnormal zoo in the sky.

But why kill her off? Did Ullerup want more money? Have another job waiting in the wings? Were there personality conflicts behind the scenes? Maybe she wanted to go off to college or work for Obama?

"To be very honest about it, it was a decision we arrived at with our two major networks in the U.S. and Canada creatively, and we really felt it would have the deepest, most dramatic impact on the series and the characters," Kindler said. "We felt it was a very bold, kind of brave choice to make, and the more we looked at it, the more we felt it was a really strong choice, ... the strongest choice. We did it. We are also very aware that people don't necessarily have to die in sci-fi, the characters. But we felt one of the things that makes shows so attractive is when their characters' journey are hard, but they continue to strive no matter what."

As for Ullerup, Kindler vows that he adores her. "Emilie did an amazing job, embracing the direction and in playing that part in that scene so well," he said. "It wasn't easy for anyone, least of all Emilie, but it definitely was handled with the utmost grace and professionalism. Hats off to her for that."

As we all know by now, there's a new girl taking Ashley's place: Agam Darshi's Kate Freelander. Kindler acknowledges she may rub some people the wrong way. And he wanted that. At least so he says.

"I absolutely know there will be a backlash of people who will not like Kate," Kindler said. "I think people already don't like Kate, and it's absolutely by design. She's not likable yet. But I can absolutely guarantee you that 99 percent of the people who don't like Kate, by the end of the season will like Kate." Her moment to shine will be in the episode called "Penance," which guest-stars Stargate SG-1's Michael Shanks.

Tonight's episode, "Hero," deals with a man who thinks he's a crime-fighting superhero (it was written by Alan McCullough and directed by Martin Wood). And it's funny.

"It's an absolutely heartwarming and hysterical, action-packed tale, with the wonderful Chris Gauthier from Eureka in the guest-starring role," Kindler said. "I'd like to say you're going to see a new tone of humor in Sanctuary, and that's good. It's important. It's just as important as the heavy epic stuff. It's very heartwarming, too. Ryan Robbins [Henry] is lovely in this episode. I think there's just some lovely, funny and touching moments, and also a f'in great monster. A really great monster."

What about Ashley?

"Once we know for sure about a third season, there is definitely an Ashley story in there that we're developing, and I think it's very true to what we've done with the character," Kindler said. "The intention was to never kill her off with any finality. It was always to kill her off in a way that was dubious at best and fraught with inconsistencies and fraught with mystery and isn't completely solved even when they have to put her to rest and move on. I didn't want to milk that horse more than three episodes. I think that gave that arc its due, and then we had to move on to business as usual. We only have 13 episodes."

Flash Forward Preview & Sneak Peek!

Vampire Diaries Scoop!


SPOILER ALERT: You know the drill. If last night’s Vampire Diaries is still taking up space in your FauxVo, stop reading now. Everyone else, onward and downward…

This sucks. My favorite Vampire Diaries character, nascent fang-bearer Vicki, bit the dust thanks to a stake-weilding Stefan in last night’s bloody good Halloween-themed episode. Or did she… In this exclusive interview, Vicki’s portrayer, Kayla Ewell, reveals shocking details surrounding her on-screen death, including the identity of the original killer (it wasn’t supposed to be Stefan!) and how a clue in last night’s eppy may foreshadow her return.

Is Vicki really dead this time?
KAYLA EWELL: Sadly, yes. It’s funny because I almost died four times on the show.
Has it been hard keeping the secret?
EWELL: Yes. It’s a relief to finally be able to talk about it. People have been coming up to me in L.A. going, “Why aren’t you in Atlanta [working on the show]?” And I’m like, “Oh, I’m just here visiting my family. I had a couple of days off.” I’ve had to basically lie. But The CW and Warner Bros. wanted [my death] to be a big shock. And I think it will be.

How long have you known that Vicki would die?
EWELL: I knew very early on. But knowing it and actually going through it are two completely different things. Seven episodes is a lot of time to bond with people. Being back in L.A. has been harder than I thought it would be because this job was more special to me than any other job I’ve ever done.

So when you initially signed on you knew it was only for seven episodes?
EWELL: Yes. [Vicki's death] was something that needed to happen in order for Jeremy (Steve McQueen) to go through a transformation.

At least you got a chance to play a vampire!
EWELL: It was such a gift as an actress to be the first [human] to turn. The audience got to go through the whole thing with me, which was really fun.

Was part of you hoping Kevin Williamson would change his mind?
EWELL: Of course. I’d be lying if I said [leaving] wasn’t difficult. But it was also the most amazing experience of my life.

What was it like shooting your death scene?
EWELL: Funny story: In the original script, Jeremy kills Vicki. And that’s what we shot. Jeremy is forced to choose between saving the love of his life or his sister, and he chooses his sister. We shot the whole thing and I [moved back to] L.A. Then about a week-and-a-half later, I got an email from Kevin and [co-executive producer] Julie Plec asking me to come back to Atlanta to reshoot my death scene — only this time Stefan kills me.

Why the switch?
EWELL: They chose to have Stefan kill me because it makes him more of a hero since he saves Elena. There was also the question of would Jeremy know to actually stake a vampire in the heart?

Any chance you might return?
EWELL: Anything can happen on a vampire show. Dying doesn’t necessarily mean that someone’s gone forever… In the original script, when Vicki gets staked you see her disappear into dust. But in the [reshot scene that aired], Stefan pulls the stake out and Damon takes me away. So they left the ending open to interpretation.

True Blood Scoop!


Crisis averted. After we fans got our first glimpse at True Blood season three earlier this week, there was widespread concern that werewolf Alcide Herveaux, a major fan fave character from the third book, would not be part of season three. Well, we caught up with True Blood boss Alan Ball last night, and he assures us that Alcide is present and accounted for in season three. (Woo!)

Alan tells us that not only does Alcide appear, but that he's bringing his backstory from the books with him: "Alcide Herveaux is going to be on TV. We haven't cast him yet, but I believe he appears first in the third episode. Alcide is already in love with someone, a very bad woman named Debbie Pelt. But will he fall in love with some else? It's too soon to say."

We learned a great deal more last night at the fantastic True Blood writers' event hosted by the Paley Center. Among other things, there was a promise from Ball that one of your fan-fave actors won't be marginalized on the TV series (even if Charlaine Harris does have it in for his character in the books), and crucial info about where/when/how you can next see Alexander Skarsgård nekkid. Here's what we learned about this very, very important question:

News for Team Bill: According to Ball, the bad news for Team Bill is that there probably won't be a Bill-Sookie (Anna Paquin) wedding this season, even after Bill's sweet finale marriage proposal, but the good news is that the show won't leave Bill hanging: "Stephen Moyer will not be marginalized...Bill and Sookie might go through some rough patches that last maybe a little longer than Team Bill fans might like. But Bill and Sookie have a connection that will never die."

News for Team Eric: Fans of Skarsgård will have a lot to like in season three. From Eric's humble beginnings in season one, when, as Ball puts it, "He was a prisoner of that wig," he's graduated to a front and center role in season three. To be specific, he'll be front, center and naked. Ball said, "Alex has indicated a willingness to go there, and I believe he appears without most of his clothes in the very first episode [of season three]." (Good work, vampire people!)

News for Team Everybody Else: Season three will be about "identity," as the various characters figure out who they are: Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) investigates his biological parents and his shapeshifter heritage, Sookie (Anna Paquin) "gets closer to the answer" of why she has that flashy fairy power—and why bro Jason (Ryan Kwanten) doesn't; and Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) explores her newfound vampirism. As producer Raelle Tucker told us, "Jessica's going through an identity crisis, and needing to suck blood to survive doesn't make [being a teenager] any easier. But she's really finding who she is...but when you have fangs, there are some missteps along the way that can be quite dangerous."

Smallville Scoop!

Syfy Redoing BBC's 'Being Human'!


The BBC's clever 20-something show Being Human about a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost who end up as roommates is the latest British series to get an Americanized version. Syfy has ordered 13 episodes of the new series, which it plans to launch in the summer or fall or 2010 as a companion to its show Sanctuary (which also features a vampire and a werewolf).


Being Human debuted on the digital network BBC Three with six episodes and was popular enough that it got moved up to the larger BBC One. A second season of eight episodes is planned for early next year in Britain, and the show also airs in the U.S. on BBC America.


"It turned out great as we can now do an American version," Syfy president Dave Howe told The Hollywood Reporter. "We've always been keen on vampires and werewolves, and we loved the originality of Being Human, the fact that the fantastical creatures in it are very young, accessible and charming."

Howe said the Syfy version will not just "slavishly replicate the British version."

Vampire Diaries Scoop!


If you thought one Damon (Ian Somerhalder) was wicked enough on The Vampire Diaries, the twisted Salvatore brother has added to his arsenal by turning Vicki Donovan (Kayla Ewell) into a vampire. On the show's Halloween episode (Thursday, 9/8c, CW), there are surprises in store — for Ewell and others. "It's going to be one of the most shocking moments of television and you don't want to miss it," Ewell says. Ewell tells TVGuide.com about the scene that made co-star Katerina Graham cry, the new vampire slayer and why Vicki's the female Damon.

TVGuide.com: Why do you think Vampire Diaries has been so successful?
Kayla Ewell: I think vampires were already really big and we just joined the wave of success. I also think our show is different than everything else. I feel like Twilight is the PG version and True Blood would be like the R-rated version. Our show is PG-13, so we get both viewers. Our vampires are so sexy; I feel like they're my favorite vampires.

Watch full episodes of The Vampire Diaries in our Online Video Guide

TVGuide.com: Are there any divas on set yet?
Ewell: [Laughs] Not yet. To be honest with you, we've been told by hair and makeup that the guys are bigger divas than the girls. Some of the guys can be high-maintenance, but they're still awesome.

TVGuide.com: Vicki is becoming a vampire. Tells us about her journey.
Ewell: It was really fun to find out that I was becoming a vampire because I was the first to make the transition. The second thought I had was, "Oh crap, I have to do this now." I talked to some of our producers, and asked what some good movies to watch are. One I watched was Interview with the Vampire, to actually study how they bite people and suck their blood. You have to grow the fangs, so your gums are aching. You have to go through all the things that you're feeling physically because you're completely changing. I've never played anything animalistic before, so this has been such a fun stretch for me.

TVGuide.com: Do you feel for Ian and Paul Wesley now that you have to do all the vampire stuff on set?
Ewell: No, not really because it's super-badass to be a vampire. The only thing that I know that they hate is the blood. It tastes horrible. It's like corn syrup and sticky. It's just the worst taste in the world.

TVGuide.com: Is Vicki a good vampire or a bad vampire?
Ewell: My take is that she's a bad vampire. Whoever you are as a person is [magnified] by 1,000 when you turn into a vampire. I'm a mini-Damon, only a female version.

TVGuide.com: Is Vicki going to be killing anyone?
Ewell: Yeah, Vicki goes on a killing spree. It's super-fun. I don't realize what's happening to me and just start acting on instinct, vampire instincts, instead of really thinking what I'm doing. It's so fun to be able to be a human, but also have the vampire tendencies.

TVGuide.com: Katerina Graham told me that the Halloween episode is very emotional.
Ewell: It is. It was emotional for everyone. We can't really say why yet. There's something that happens that's very shocking. It will be shocking to the viewers. It's going to be great; it's going to create such an uproar. It's going to make the show that much more popular and bring a lot of attention.

TVGuide.com: Would you say anyone is safe on this show?
Ewell: I would say no one is safe unless you're on the poster, which would be [Nina Dobrev], Paul and Ian. Even so, I think it's just really scary because on a vampire show, people do have to come in and out and die or come back to life. You're never really safe. We definitely all learned about that.

TVGuide.com: You have a vampire slayer coming in.
Ewell: Yes, Matt Davis. I'm such a fan. His character, Alaric, comes in as the new teacher because the teacher died. Damon killed the first teacher that everyone hated. [Davis] comes in as the super-hot teacher that all the kids are obsessed with. He starts to date Jenna [Sara Canning], who is Elena and Jeremy's aunt. No one realizes that he is a vampire slayer.

SPOILERS!


Question: G’day! How about you share some Glee scoop? —Vivian
Ausiello: Okay, mate. There’s a crazy-ass rumor going around that Will will discover Terri’s faux baby plot, dump her, and then, in a moment of passion, get her pregnant for real! The really crazy-ass part? Sources confirm that two of those three things are true! And the other one? Not so much.

Question: I loved the Rachel-Puck hook-up in last week’s Glee! Is this something that the show may continue in the future? —Tiana
Ausiello: Not in the immediate future. In the immediate future, Puck is mostly into Quinn. Which is sweet considering he knocked her up and all.

Question: I have a really fun assignment for you, Aus. Create a chart listing every Lost alum there ever was, and then next to their names, tell us where things stand in terms of them returning for the final season. I just know how much you love to make lists. —Steven
Ausiello: I have a better idea: Let’s scrap the chart and forget we ever had this conversation. In return, I’ll share this Lost nugget with you: I hear Team Darlton will give us the answer to one of Lost’s oldest and most confounding mysteries. And I’m pretty sure it’s an answer none of us expected to get.


Question: Can you please find out what the deal is with the episode 9 of The Mentalist? The plotline hasn’t been released, but I hear something big goes down at CBI. —Liz
Ausiello: Here’s what I know: It’s a big Red John episode and someone dies.

Question: Is Jenna the one who’s going to die on The Vampire Diaries? – Georgia
Ausiello: Nope.

Question: Have any Vampire Diaries tidbits? —Lauren
Ausiello: I have a tidbit. In episode 8, ****a* stakes ***o*.

Question: I’m really excited to hear about Bones‘ flashback episode. Does this mean we’ll be getting a visit from Zack? —Estee
Ausiello: “That’s still up in the air,” responds exec producer Stephen Nathan. “We would like to have him in the episode, but we have to work out scheduling as well as story issues.”

Question: When are you going to post your Q&A with the Smallville producers? — Trisha
Ausiello: I’m eschewing the customary Q&A in favor of a parceling-out approach. Here’s one scoop. Here’s another. And, looky here, there’s a bunch more below!

Question: Will Clois move full-steam ahead on Smallville or will there be a monkey wrench that derails the train? —Murnice
Ausiello: While the relationship hasn’t exactly moved along faster than a speeding bullet, you’ll be glad to know that there are blue skies on the horizon — beginning with this week’s big smooch. “They both have a few issues, so things never go as smoothly as you think,” says exec producer Kelly Souders. “But what’s great about the relationship, because it’s sort of more adult, mature relationship, is it actually brings their issues up to the forefront, and makes them start dealing with them instead of being the younger versions of themselves, where they might not have been that conscious of it.”

Question: Will Clark ever find out about Lois’ so called “Sex Dream” on Smallville? —Lisa
Ausiello: “I would say tune into [episode 9] ‘Pandora,’” Souders teases. “Reality is relative in ‘Pandora,’ but I will say that when [Lois] goes to the future, there’s some skin there.” Souders adds that “‘Pandora’ is literally like a finale. It’s huge. You’ll see an alternate ending for everyone in the cast. You’ll see what could happen to them and the future is dramatic. You won’t be disappointed.”

Question: When will Clark put on the iconic glasses on Smallville? —Jackson
Ausiello: “There’s something coming up in these first nine episodes,” Souders reveals, “in which Clark might at least contemplate glasses.”

Question: Why has Allison Mack had so little screen time on Smallville this season? —Kathy
Ausiello: The calm before the storm, perhaps? “Chloe fans will not be disappointed,” Souders maintains. “There will be some budding romance in her life from an unexpected source.” Oliver? “I’m not saying.” In possibly related news, Souders reveals to me exclusively that during the second half of the season, “Chloe is going to meet a new hero who is not all that he’s cracked up to be.” Will this hero be carrying a DC Comics certificate of authenticity? “I don’t think we got the rights to his name cleared,” says Souders, “but it’s somebody fans of the show will be familiar with.”

Question: Please tell me that this week’s Ask Ausiello is not closed yet! You must tell me when Gemma tells SAMCRO what happened to her on Sons of Anarchy! —Cindy
Ausiello: You just made it in under the deadline! Congrats! To answer your question, the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth comes out in the Nov. 10 episode.

Question: I need me some Supernatural scoop. —Natalie
Ausiello: Body swap alert! Sam and Dean switch bodies in episode 12!

Question: When, if at all, will Peter realize he doesn’t belong in this dimension on Fringe? — JSL
Ausiello: I ran this query by executive producer Jeff Pinkner, who responded, “Clearly part of the tension of this season is that the audience knows more about Peter than Peter knows about himself and we will continue to play that tension.” Or, to put it in the words of Massive Dynamic’s legal division, “No comment.”

LOST Scoop!


After five years of Lost being the craziest, most compelling show on TV, when season six premieres this January, we'll learn everything we ever wanted to know about the Island, the Lostaways and the mysteries of the show.

Right?

Well, that's what we're all hoping for anyway. We just caught up with Lost show runner Damon Lindelof at Golden Apple Comics here in L.A. and pestered him about whether or not the final season is really going to deliver the answers fans want. D.L. was on hand to promote his Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk comic compilation, and he graciously took questions from the audience and gave each attendee a little exclusive one-on-one time while signing the books.

We took advantage of the situation to ask about the love situation on Lost and to snag you answers about the hieroglyphics and "4 8 15 16 23 42."

Read on to see what the Lost boss shared about love, the numbers and the mysterious question posited by the secret poster code...

For those fans of Lost who are invested in the romance on the show, will there be anything for them this year, or is this primarily a mythology season?
That's an excellent question. Our focus remains where it's always been: on the characters. And there are significant and emotional bonds, from both the friendship and the romantic angle, that we would be remiss in not exploring; we probably won't be exploring them in the way that you think. That's my official answer.

All right, last night you tweeted about this event, and you said that you would address the numbers question.
Oh, well that was just to get people here. [Laughs.]

Are we going to get an answer on the numbers this season?
When someone asks what the numbers mean or are you going to answer the mystery of the numbers, it's a very interesting phrasing of a question, because I would pose it back to them: Well, what does an answer to "what do the numbers mean" look like? The answer that I'm giving now, my political answer, is that we've made a lot of the numbers in this show, so the idea that in the final season of the show we are telling everybody that we're in answer mode and you're never going to see the numbers again, or you won't understand a lot more about the numbers than you do now, would be a cop-out. You would legitimately tar and feather us. But the one question that I can't answer is what someone's own level of personal satisfaction is going to be when all is said and done. We've gotten a sense from some people that there's no such thing as a definitive answer to a question, you know? You say that this is the definitive answer and sometimes fans do like, "No, it's not, I still think that there's more there." So all we can do is basically tell the story that we want to tell and answer the questions that are relevant to that story and hope that the audience leaves with some degree of satisfaction. But Lost wouldn't be Lost if there wasn't an ongoing debate as to whether or not questions were answered satisfyingly or not.


OK, this might be a little esoteric, but who is the leader, and why does it matter?
That is very esoteric. I don't know, you look like a Jennifer—I think what Jennifer is referring to is in some of our Lost season-six promotional materials there are some hieroglyphics. Various hieroglyphic experts—who are those guys, by the way?—have taken a crack at interpreting what these hieroglyphics translate to, and one of the popular theories that is now emerging is that they translate to this question, "Who is the leader?" So if that's what he thinks it means, you'd have to ask him. I don't know why we would make people work so hard just to enjoy a poster!

Really? There's nothing about Locke versus Sawyer versus Jack versus Sayid versus Ben?
Nope, nothing. Who cares about leadership?

You've done a number of events like this. You've received a lot of questions from fans. Has there ever been a question where you guys are like, "Wow. That reminds us. We haven't played with that story yet" or that has helped you guys frame a storyline based on some feedback?
I think there are questions that percolate up that if I were a fan of the show I would be asking the question. I think that most of the writers on the show think like fanboys, whether they are boys or girls. The fact of the matter is no question is ever asked of us that we're not asking ourselves. So by the time someone asks me if Libby's ever coming back to the show for the 14th time, I'm like, "Trust me. I wish we could figure out a way to make that work." Like, I wish I could talk to the actress and get down on my hands and knees and beg her to come back, but the reality is, you know, there are certain questions that every time you're asked it's a pain for you because you're basically like, "I know man. You're absolutely right."

NBC Wants More Chuck!


NBC is close to giving "Chuck" a big thumbs up.

The network will likely order as many as six additional episodes of the comedic spy adventure, two industry insiders familiar with the situation told TheWrap. The extra episodes would be on top of the 13 hours already ordered for season three.

NBC's move could be a sign the network wants to bring "Chuck" back on the air in January, splitting its season into pre- and post-Olympics pods. Most industry insiders believe "Chuck" will return to its past 8 p.m. Monday timeslot, though NBC has been tight-lipped about its midseason scheduling plans.

If the Peacock wanted to go radical, it could stick to its plan to bring back "Chuck" in March, but keep the show in originals during the summer -- giving "The Jay Leno Show" some lead-in love during the warm weather season. Such a move would be costly but does have some logic.

Reps for NBC and producer Warner Bros. TV had no comment.

Smallville Scoop!


Smallville hasn’t even crossed the midway point of season 9 and already talk of a possible 10th season is heating up — and not just among fans. “We are really, really pushing for season 10,” executive producer Kelly Souders tells me. “We really hope it happens.”

Although the show lost a good chunk of viewers since moving to that ratings kryptonite known as Friday night, the drop-off hasn’t been nearly as disastrous as some had predicted. And Souders believes that the numbers will rise as the season progresses. “I think the word still isn’t out there that we’re on Friday nights. So if people keep tuning in and telling their friends about it, I think [a 10th season] is quite likely.”

The uncertainty surrounding the show’s future has proved challenging as Souders and her fellow writers begin to map out the second half of the season. Are they approaching a season finale or a series finale? “It’s something that we faced last year, too,” she says. “To try and break two different endings for a season kind of puts you at cross-purposes a little bit. For one, you’ll rev things up, and for another, you’re trying to bring everything to the finish line. But we’re really planning on breaking a season finale and not a series finale.”

As for whether we’ll get a glimpse of Clark in his iconic blue, red and yellow suit by the show’s conclusion, Souders says, “We think Smallville from the get-go was about how a young man turns into Superman. And it’s really about the journey getting there. I can’t make any promises, but if it was ever going to happen, it would be at the very end.”

For Episode 5x09 "The Real Ghostbusters":

Eastwick Scoop!


Just in case you haven't jumped on the Eastwick bandwagon yet, this week is the perfect opportunity. Executive producer Maggie Friedman says the Halloween episode is a great time to catch up: "You won't feel lost."

Unfortunately, an Eastwick resident will be lost in this week's episode. Roxie (Rebecca Romijn) previously prophesized the death of someone close to her, but who's actually in the coffin? Friedman drops a few hints on that, tells us what happens when the Kat-Joanna-Will love triangle comes to a head and what Jerry O'Connell will be doing when he drops by the town of Eastwick.

TVGuide.com: What can you tell us about the Halloween episode?
Maggie Friedman: I am so proud of our Halloween episode. I think it's an incredible ride — multiple characters in life-threatening situations, love triangles, friendships being tested, lots of action, suspense, magic, surprises, crazy plot twists and loads of Halloween fun. It's for sure our best episode yet, and a great one to start watching if you've never seen the show before.

TVGuide.com: Any hints you can give about that funeral Roxie keeps dreaming about?
Friedman: It's someone very close to her — someone she loves. She will spend the Halloween episode trying to figure out who is going to die, and trying to stop it from happening. But can she change fate? That is the question!

TVGuide.com: What other powers will we discover in the ladies?
Friedman: This week Joanna [Lindsay Price] will be placed in a dangerous and exciting circumstance, her very life will be threatened, and through this she will discover a power she had no idea she possessed. In future episodes, all of our ladies will be expanding their powers into new and surprising realms! We're about to get very, very magical.

TVGuide.com: How will the love triangle between Kat (Jaime Ray Newman), Joanna and Will (Johann Urb) play out?
Friedman: Well, you'll have to tune in to find out, but I will say this: When Joanna finds out about Kat and Will, their friendship will be severely tested. It's a very juicy episode with a lot of conflict between the women.

TVGuide.com: Is Jerry O'Connell's character good or evil? What other details can you share?
Friedman: I don't want to ruin too much about Jerry's storyline, but I will say this: He is a good man hiding a horrible secret. He's a single father, a widow, with a young son who is a part of this secret. Kat will be drawn to him, and she will be put in danger as a result.

Eastwick: The witches' new mystery man is very bad

TVGuide.com: What do you want to say to people who haven't seen the show yet? Why should they watch?
Friedman: Well, I'm biased, but I love our show. I'm very proud of it and I think people should watch because we've got it all. It's a very funny, very sexy show, with lots of suspense and surprises, and we have an incredible cast. Great cliff-hangers and ongoing stories, and yet each episode is different. The supernatural element keeps growing every week, and it works on multiple levels — there literally is magic happening on the show, but it's also a metaphor for these characters' lives, which I think are very rich and relatable. Also, we just have so much fun making Eastwick and I think it shows.

Are you planning to give Eastwick a chance?

New Moon Volturi Vid!

Smallville Scoop!


Allison Mack may not have had a lot of screen time this season on Smallville, but the producers are making up for it with a fiery new love interest for Chloe Sullivan. Executive producer Kelly Souders tells us all about who Chloe's new man is, how Clark (Tom Welling) gets to see the world through Lois' eyes, the big Clark-Zod showdown and the arrival of Jor-El (Julian Sands).

TVGuide.com: You teased a big twist coming up with Chloe. Can you discuss what it is? Is she returning to the Daily Planet?
Kelly Souders: She has a couple things coming up. We've talked a lot with Allison because Chloe's big issue this year — she's having a hard time trusting people, understandably. Other people have come and gone in her life. She's got a few things below the surface about which she hasn't been very forthcoming with people around her. I think there's going to be a couple of surprises along the way, some of them more personal than others.

TVGuide.com: So Allison will have more screen time this season?
Souders: Yeah. One of the things is that we do have a big, huge cast now, which is great, so everybody ends up sharing the screen a little bit. One thing with her is that she always has something she's working on on her own, so she's developing herself and where she really stands in the whole hero-J.L.A. of it all. There's definitely a part of her in all these heroes lives that is more than the simple sidekick.

TVGuide.com: Could there be a new love interest in her future?
Souders: Oh, just maybe yes. I think there's going to be a hint of some feelings under the surface. If you pay attention, I think there's somebody she maybe has a little bit of a fire for. I'm not saying [who], I'll give you this much: It's somebody who is very charming and it would be hard for anybody not to have a fire for.

TVGuide.com: Moving over to Clark, are we going to see more of his abilities coming out and will there be more training from Jor-El?
Souders: I have to be honest. The idea is he's doing some of that at the fortress. He has so much other story going on, we don't see a lot of that for a little while, but it does come back into play. I can't quite [tease any powers] because we're breaking one of them as we speak and we're going back and forth on exactly how the power works, but I can say that it's a magnificent power.

TVGuide.com: Be honest: It's flying. Do we get to see him fly this season?
Souders: As we've said before, that's kind of his final step to becoming Superman, but at least it's on his radar now.

TVGuide.com: How are you approaching Clark and Lois (Erica Durance) finally being a couple this season?
Souders: They have their ups and downs just like every other couple. What comes out in the first half of this season is exactly what their issues are as far as their relationship goes. You get a little more insight, particularly into Lois. In the past, Clark was always hesitant to get into a relationship. He's finally met his match in Lois and I think she's even more hesitant in some ways than he is. The issues that she's grappling with romantically will start to emerge more clearly over this first half of the season.

TVGuide.com: Will she find out Clark's secret now that they're dating?
Souders: Well... there's a really great episode called "Idol" that's coming up that if you're curious about Lois and Clark and the secret, you should definitely watch that one. As we know we have to line up with the mythos, in which case she doesn't know his secret, but watch "Idol," it's very, very fun.

TVGuide.com: I take "Pandora" to be the episode when Clark discovers the content of Lois' visions. How does he come to discover it and how does it affect the future story lines in learning this?
Souders: It greatly affects Clark's storyline and shines a big light on Zod [Callum Blue] and the other Kandorians who have come. It informs what Clark does from that point forward. He discovers it through Lois' point of view, through her visions of the future. It's Smallville, so we have to do something more visual than her just telling him. It's not another power, there's nothing unreal about it, but he gets to see the world through her eyes in a sense.

TVGuide.com: With Jor-El and Zod coming back, that can change the Smallville mythology. How is the time-paradox going to play out?
Souders: There's a little secret about Zod and the Kandorians: They're not exactly the way you think they are; that has a great deal to do with how the mythos would play out. In Episode 7, which is called "Kandor," a lot of their backstory comes to light and it sheds a huge light on them here presently.

TVGuide.com: When will Clark meet Zod and what happens when they come together?
Souders: He meets him in the first run [Editor's note: The first run of episodes concludes with Episode 9]. It's a little prickly. They don't have any reason to trust each other, so they don't. A lot comes to light in the middle run about each other. The tables keep on turning.

TVGuide.com: Will Clark get to meet Jor-El in person?
Souders: Tune in to "Kandor."

TVGuide.com: Here's the tricky one. Will the Jor-El in the Fortress of Solitude get to meet the Jor-El who has arrived on Earth?
Souders: How would you explain that in a scene? [Laughs] That would be a writers' nightmare. They don't quite come face-to-face at this point.

TVGuide.com: What are the prospects of a 10th season right now?
Souders: We're just going gung-ho. We are planning to break a season finale and not a series finale. We have our fingers crossed. The fans have just been amazing. Nobody knew what was going to happen when we moved to Friday night and the fact that fans showed up and have been enjoying the show, it's meant everything to us and I know it's meant a lot to the studio and the network. I think that's given us a much better chance of coming back for Season 10. We're hopeful.

Alice in Wonderland - Extended Trailer

"V" Sneak Peeks!

Heroes Sneak Peeks!

SPOILERS!


What's the story with new episodes of 24? — Randy
MICKEY: Are you a baseball fan, Randy? Even if you're not, you should tune in to the World Series because that's when Fox will unveil the first preview of the new season of 24, which starts in January 2010. But until then, here's a tidbit: Within the first hour of Season 8, Jack will meet his granddaughter. No word yet on whether Baby Bauer is rooting for New York or Philadelphia. (Go Phillies!)

Are the Vampire Diaries writers sticking to the books? For instance, will Bonnie end up with [name redacted]? — Chris
MICKEY: Whoa there, Chris, don't ruin it for the fans who haven't read the books! "Just because it happens in the book, doesn't mean it's going to happen on the show," Katerina Graham, who plays Bonnie, tells us. As for whether or not the writers plan to get Bonnie and [that person] together, it doesn't look like that will happen any time soon. "One of the writers said I'm not going to get any action for a very long time," says Graham. So [redacted] will have to cool his or her jets in the meantime!

When does Glee return with new episodes and can you tease anything juicy? — Nicole
MICKEY: Glee returns Nov. 11, when we learn that both Sue Sylvester and Tina have character-revealing secrets. One reveal will end a relationship before it even gets started. The other will make you reconsider a character you thought you knew.

On Smallville, will we see Clark wear a suit with some color this season? Or maybe wear his iconic glasses? — Sharlene
ADAM: Get used to the basic black, Sharlene. "He isn't quite done with his suit yet," says executive producer Kelly Souders. "This whole season is the alter ego before he starts transforming into the [Superman] that we all know." As for the glasses, she says, "There's a flirting moment with a pair of glasses. I won't say that he's definitely got them on, but I would watch the next little run. You'll see it in the first nine episodes."

On White Collar, will Neal ever try to run again to get to Kate?
MICKEY: Ankle security monitor be damned, it sure looks like it. Executive producer Jeff Eastin told me that Neal will always want to run. "There will always be that tension, but for the most part Neal is happy with his job," he says. Deduce what you will, then, from the fact that Kate (All My Children's Alexandra Daddario) is a recurring character on the show. We'll see her soon.

LOST Scoop!

Sons of Anarchy Scoop!


The brutal gang rape that Gemma (Katey Segal) suffered in the Season 2 premiere of Sons of Anarchy caused plenty of pain — and it forged a bond between Gemma and would-be daughter-in-law Tara (Maggie Siff).

"They're really different on the surface, but in some ways they are cut of the same cloth," Siff tells TVGuide.com.

One thing they both have in common: their love for Gemma's son, Jax (Charlie Hunnam). Tara's involvement in Jax's life has led her back to the rough-and-tumble lifestyle of the SAMCRO motorcycle club, something that also brought her closer to Gemma.

"Gemma has decided to help Tara figure out how to navigate the ropes," Siff says. "What's required is that you know what the code is, and Gemma is helping her with that."

Together, the two have uncovered what Siff (Mad Men, Nip/Tuck) calls Tara's "primal" side. Whether its midday target practice on a porn star's car or just turning a blind eye to the clubs less-than-upstanding ways, Siff says it's been a fun diversion.

"It's a side of her that not's totally unexplored," Siff says. "That aggression and those spontaneous acts of violence or destruction or jealousy or rage are impulses that Gemma has never sat on. She's never done the work of learning how to deal with all those twitchy, aggressive aspects of herself. And so she invites Tara to release her hold on those things in herself. And she does — because in this world, it's necessary for survival."

So far, Tara has only (hilariously) suffered a broken nose at the hands of a still jumpy Gemma. "It just shows the violence comes randomly and out of nowhere, and you're f----- if you're standing in the wrong place at the wrong time," Siff jokes.

But the 35-year-old actress says her injury is a significant reminder of how much Tara's life is changing. "It becomes a physical emblem of the fact that she's gotten back into this world. She can't hide it," Siff says.

Because she's become so involved in and accepting of Jax's lifestyle, Siff says the couple's relationship is stronger than ever. She points to the key Season 2 moment when Jax shares with Tara his father's manuscript as a sign of how much he trusts her.

"The book is the vision of the future — it's the thing that he's heading towards," Siff says. "The book becomes something to hold onto in our minds. The desire to be honest is actually stronger than the ability to be honest a lot of the time. It's a big gesture and a huge step toward honesty when they're living in a world where everyone keeps secrets."

But Tara's secret — her knowledge of Gemma's rape and her willingness to keep it quiet at Gemma's request — is a ticking time bomb. When that bomb goes off, however, Siff says the consequences for her character are minimal.

"The revelation of what happened to Gemma is so big in and of itself that it's kind of distracting from everything else around it," Siff says. "There isn't a ton of blowback. It's something that's dealt with, but at the end of the day it's pretty easy to understand why Tara's kept that secret."

But that doesn't mean Tara — or anyone, really — is safe. In Tuesday's episode, somebody very close the club will die, and he or she probably won't be the last.

"Things get pretty dangerous for everybody associated with the club. No one is safe," Siff says. "The last few episodes really unfold in a pretty bloody and brutal, harrowing way. There end up being a lot of casualties. You don't know where it's going to come from or how bad it's going to be when it does happen. But you know something's going to happen."

Sons of Anarchy airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on FX.

More True Blood Scoop!


For a backwater burg with only a single watering hole, Bon Temps sure does have a lot of colorful characters passing in and out (well, those that end up making it out). Case in point: Check out the motley crew Alan Ball and Co. are introducing in season 3 (premiering next summer). While Ball teased some of these arrivals in my recent Q&A, there’s nothing like sinking your teeth into the actual casting notices.

* Tommy Mickens is a grungy but handsome man in his early ‘20s who just so happens to be Sam Merlotte’s long-lost younger brother. Apparently, at some point he’ll be showing his unadorned backside, which, with Sam’s similar feral tendency towards the “full moon,” proves that they really must be related after all.

*After his mysterious abduction, Bill finds himself with the latest addition to the True Blood Gallery of Impossibly Attractive Male Vampires (or the TBGIAMV). Talbot, a bitingly (har har) sarcastic vampire with a model’s looks, will appear starting in the second episode as a guide of sorts for the kidnapped vamp.

* More news on the PYT front is the appearance of Jesus Velasquez, an unordinary orderly with a heart to match his good looks.

* In a friendly bit of one-upmanship, Tara gets her very own over-protective vampire buddy. And a “sexy, sexy, sexy, sexy” one at that. That’s right, four sexys. Eat that, Sookie. The neckbiter, Franklin Mott, is also clearly in the running for TBGIAMV status.

* We’ve had vampires, shape-shifters, and demi-gods, and now the next supernatural spook to waltz through Louisiana is…rednecks?! Well, maybe they aren’t so unearthly, but they can sure pack a punch and we can expect a group of them, led by a guy named Coot (of course), to unleash their mobile home magic on some of our dear characters.

* Jason Stackhouse will find that his notoriously limitless libido has taken a hit, when two NYU girls, Jen and Missy, ménage à try to get him into the sack to little avail.

* Yvetta, Fangtasia’s new Czechoslovakian dancer, is tremendously hot and comfortable being in the buff. Oh, and she makes lots of sexy time with Eric. (Don’t shoot the messenger!)

* Tara’s ever-distraught mom turns to the church for comfort (and maybe a little more) in the form of the honorable Reverend Daniels.
