Burn Notice

  • Glen Harrick, an heroin importer, wants to kill Sam and everyone who works for him in Episode 11, "Loose Ends." He gets a hold of Sam and uses him as bait. [Source: TV Squad]
Desperate Housewives
  • [Marc] Cherry says: Delany plays a woman who moved onto Wisteria Lane 12 years ago when Mary-Alice was alive and only Susan knew her. She's back with a younger husband (Fillion) and her daughter is now 17. Brenda Strong (Mary-Alice) will make live appearances in flashback. Newlywed Gaby continues her affair with Carlos. We find out why Bree's hiding her pregnancy. Lynnette's in the middle of chemo and having problems with her mother. Susan and Mike are trying to settle into domestic bliss. [Source: TV Squad]
  • According to AfterElton.com, a gay couple will move to Wisteria Lane around Episode 5. "We're going to have the first male Desperate Housewives," show creator and head writer Marc Cherry told the website. "They will move into the old Applewhite house, and one of the gay men will just have a fractious, hateful relationship with Teri Hatcher." Cherry said he'll draw from his own life for inspiration. "Susan (Hatcher) wants to be so politically correct and show how open-minded she is that she puts her foot in her mouth instantly and it goes downhill from there," Cherry said. "I'm basing it a little bit on my relationship with my neighbors." The only thing still up in the air is who will play the new characters. "We just started writing the episodes," Cherry said. "So I probably won't start casting for another few weeks." [Source: TV Guide]
  • We chatted with Teri Hatcher last week, and she said Susan and Mike will be adjusting to married life when the show returns. [...] Teri also shared that in the first episode, she had quite a few scenes with Nathan Fillion, and that he and Dana Delaney are fitting in fabulously and adding a lot to the already wonderful dynamic. [... We are] hearing something about seeing Lynette as a little girl in flashbacks. [Source: Watch with Kristin]
  • In the episode 4.03, Susan goes to the mall where she has an appointment with an OBGYN (one can guess that she decided to switch doctors when she discovered that Adam lives on Wisteria Lane). Doctor Takajian's office is not well kept; actually, the office and the man seem shady. Before she enters the office, another patient warns her that Susan should make sure the nurse is in the office with them. Another patient says that she only comes to this clinic to get clean urine.

Grey's Anatomy
  • Sources confirm that newly minted Emmy nominee Elizabeth Reaser is returning to Grey's this fall as Alex's erstwhile Jane Doe. An exact episode count is still being worked out, but my spy tells me it's "definitely more than one." I'm hearing Rhimes may stick a fork in Gizzie in the season premiere when the ex-platonic pals are forced to examine their relationship while tending to an, um, unusual patient: a deer. That's right, an injured deer will be admitted to Seattle Grace. [Source: Michael Ausiello]
  • Episode 3 spoilers: Three women, [Elaine, Connie, and Joanne (3 friends in their 50's,] are obviously very close. Dr. Lawson enters with his interns, and Elaine tells Connie this is why SHE should get sick also, they are all so handsome. Dr. Smith enters and Connie calls him the most handsome of all, and it is clear that they know one another. Connie tells them all that Dr, Smith removed her appendix and it BARELY left a scar. She has told her friends all about him, and she says she gets nervous around the good-looking ones. Connie has cancer in her vocal chords, and they will have to do surgery on her to remove them. Connie is afraid that this may be her last chance to talk and she has so much that she has to say. With her friends' encouragement she does speak - and insults Joanne (tells her that her pants make her look fat) and Elaine (her breath is terrible). Later, the friends return to find that Connie's surgery went well and she will talk again, but for now she has to rest her vocal chords (Dr. Brown is with her). Elaine and Joanne come in with balloons and tell her that since she can't talk it THEIR turn - and they begin by telling her that she has horrible taste is men. The three woman bond as Dr. Brown leaves. Henry is a sullen 15 year-old, and his sudden change in behavior is alarming to his mother, Marcy, who has brought him in for drug tests and a complete blood work up. Dr. Keller is the doctor on the case. When the blood tests come back clean, Marcy is still concerned and Dr. Keller tells her that he's just a teenager, when Henry starts spouting nonsense. Dr. Keller orders some neurological tests. Later, Dr, Keller is paged back to the clinic to find that Henry had another spouting nonsense spell and has collapsed. An exam shows that he has herniated and pressure in his brain. Dr. Keller orders Dr. Smith paged. [Source: SpoilerTV] (Note: All doctor names are bogus because the show never uses the real character names in scripts, etc.)
Heroes
  • We'll be seeing less of Ali Larter this fall as Niki takes off early in the season to, as Larter herself teases, "fix something. And once it's fixed, it will be very shocking and exciting." [Source: Michael Ausiello]
  • The powers of new Heroes Maya (Dania Ramirez) and Alejandro (Shalim Ortiz) are connected. Dania told us this about her brother, "We need each other." We also hear that despite reports the fraternal twins are from the Dominican Republic, they're actually from Central America and will either be leaving from or at least passing through San Cristobal, Honduras. [...] We asked Masi Oka, "Riddle me this. White guy from Oregon. How is [David Anders] a samurai-type in feudal Japan?" He answered, "You will find out in the first episode. And it's an answer that everyone will be happy about. Does he have any powers? Does he share any powers? We don't know. Is he white? Yes." [...] Jack Coleman tells us of the season premiere, "It's not a direct cut in time. We're four months in the future, and Hiro is 400 years in the past, but those timelines collide in a very dramatic way." [...] According to Jack Coleman, he's moved the family to somewhere in Southern California. He says, "Los Angeles would not be accurate, but not far off." He added, "Everyone survives, but the Bennets are a very dislocated but determined group that tries to make the best of it, but old ways and old ghosts quickly come into play very dramatically." [...] There will be an upcoming storyline set in County Cork, Ireland. Separately, look for a dangerous new Francophone character named Sophie. She's the employee of a powerful, mysterious group, and she's "not afraid to use lethal force to accomplish her mission." [Source: Watch with Kristin]
House
  • Jennifer Morrison said her character is MIA in the season premiere: "When you come back for the first episode, you don't know where Cameron is, and in the second episode back, you sort of discover where she's at, but I can't give it away." Foreman, meanwhile, has struck out on his own. Omar Epps reports, "Well, when we start out the season, he's heading his own team, and stuff happens there." Jesse Spencer, thank heaven, actually spilled some details, telling K.G., "House spends the first episode without anyone there-he doesn't have a team, and it takes quite a few episodes for us to come back. And I'm actually hired back by Cuddy, so now I'm not under House anymore. That adds new weight to the characters. I'm in a different position, and House has to come to me if he's got something he needs." Robert Sean Leonard filled us in on the rest of gang: "I'm still at Princeton-Plainsboro, as is Lisa Edelstein's character, and the ducklings have gone to wing. House needs a new team, and he goes about it in a very interesting way. And I've only read the first three [scripts], but it is great-it's very fun to watch him whittle these doctors down."

How I Met Your Mother
  • Robin will start dating again and will even go on a double date with Lily and Marshall. [Source: TV Squad]
Kyle XY
  • Episode 2.14 will be titled "To C.I.R. With Love." The episode will feature at least one flashback of a teenaged Brian Taylor. The teen asks his father, a doctor, if he wants to play chess. When the man says no, not even looking at his son, Brian replies by asking what would he have said if Adam Baylin had asked the same question. Dr. Taylor replies by asking a difficult chess questions and says that the answer matters to him. Brian is not happy as he is his son, not Adam, and that his father should notice him. Dr. Taylor says that what he is doing with Adam is really important. Brian asks if what he is doing with Adam is more important than raising his own son. When Dr. Taylor doesn't reply, Brian leaves but not before answering that difficult chess question. [Source: BuddyTV SpoilerFix TVj Session]
Lost
  • Executive producer Carlton Cuse [...] said, "We aren't changing any of the format of the show. We are just adding the flash forwards as an element. They have made a radio call to a freighter, and there are people on that freighter, and it might be logical to imagine that that storyline will continue... The situation is going to be very intense this year. Charlie wrote on his hand not Penny's boat, and the message he wrote on his hand was very important. It was really funny because the clip at Comic-Con showed Mr. Friendly saying, 'by the time you see this, I'm gonna be dead, but I am telling you it's a shame because whoever is going to come after the Others is going to be a hell of a lot worse than we ever were.' Damon and I were listening to him and sort of nodding our head going, 'That's pretty prophetic.' [...] With Jin and Sun there is a very dynamic situation at work. She's pregnant...the fate of her child, the fate of their marriage, all those questions Damon and I will get to and more this season. [...] Walt will be back also. But we're not going to get into any details about that. [...] You will see more of Jacob." [Source: Watch with Kristin]
Nip/Tuck
  • Episode 4 will feature a church scene. It is unknown if it is a mass, a wedding, a baptism, etc. Also, I'm sad to report that they are looking for a Julian McMahon body double for nude scenes in that episode. Yep :( it won't be Julian's body we see. Christian is set to lift and carry a 150-pound woman (Dawn?) to her bed. Someone from Kimber's past will resurface in episode 5.05. The man, Ram Peters, is a compassionate porno films producer. We also meet Ram's wife, Busty Daniels, who has enormous breast and is a porn actress. Both will be a recurring characters. [Source: BuddyTV SpoilerFix TVj Session]
One Tree Hill
  • Newcomer Michaela McManus has been added to the cast for a multi-episode arc. She'll be playing a "tough but kind" New York editor assigned to work on Lucas' novel. Daphne Zuniga, meanwhile, is doing five episodes as a "glamorous and intimidating" business exec who works with Brooke. [Source: Michael Ausiello]
Supernatural
  • Eric Kripke says, "The two new characters are] not both hunters and they are not a hunting team. They are separate female characters that serve separate and different roles in the show. Ruby played by Katie Cassidy is a hunter and she is ruthless and tough around the edges; more violent and less morally conscious than Sam or Dean. There's a big twist coming in for Ruby as early as episode two where she is not really all that she seems to be. Bella played by Lauren Cohen is actually not a hunter, which is an interesting role in this world; she's a mercenary. All of these amulets and all of these occult objects that the boys find to stop these creatures are very valuable to the right people and so she is a thief more than she is a hunter. So say the boys need an amulet, but she's absconded with it. So she's much more of that Humphrey Bogart model of not being interested in the altruistic, revenge-minded, or heroic motives all of the other "freaks" have; she's in it to make a dollar. There's no good and evil. There are just market forces. [...] Here's who we have firm plans to bring back; we're bringing back Gordon (Sterling Brown the hunter who wanted to kill Sam), we're bringing back Bobby, Ellen, Agent Henricksen (the FBI agent who is after the boys). So those are characters you can expect to see this season for sure. [Source: iF Magazine]
The 4400
The L Word
  • Season 5 will see the addition of at least two recurring characters who will appear in a multiple-episode arc. The first one is Niki, a Caucasian woman in her 20s. She is set to play the Jenny-inspired role of Jessi in "Lez Girls" (Jenny's account of her friends' lives). Niki just finished shooting a James Bond movie and has a reputation to be rather wild, impressionable, eager and out of control. She is a potential love interest for Jenny. The other character is bi-racial Lisa, an actress in her 30s who will play Bev, the Bette-inspired role on "Lez Girls". Lisa, a straight woman, is on a question to learn the ins and outs of lesbian behavior and attaches herself to Bette saying that it's to be able to portray her properly. [Source: TV Squad]
Ugly Betty
  • Henry is definitely sticking around this season. I know this because A) Christopher Gorham was at ABC's press tour party last Thursday, and B) the show is casting the role of Kenny, Henry's BFF and office mate who speaks faux gangsta and tries to be cooler than he actually is. [In] the season premiere [...] Justin makes a cameo at "Mode," prompting Wilhelmina to mistake him for a... um... you'll see. Alejandro will be back on Betty next season. I won't say in what capacity or for how long, but he will be back. Don't tell Marc, but Amanda's getting a new sidekick - and this one has four legs. Marc, meanwhile, is getting his first stalker in the form of a gay, overweight, average-looking shutterbug. [Source: Michael Ausiello]

Wow these aren't spoilers. So the people from the freighter in "Lost" will be badder than "The Others"? You don't say. Since the 815ers virtually ripped into the Others I suggest they should've "spoilered" a bit more and told us right in the face that during the next three seasons at least 15 people will have to die to consider those "new Others" badder. THAT's what I call a spoiler. We knew they were worse from the flashback. Tell us who's in the coffin dammit! :-)

Compared to the news that Perrineau will be back on Lost this is nothing. And TVSquad did not put THAT into a Spoiler warning (still pissed about that).
