The episode, "No Mas," means "No More" in Spanish and it will be interesting to see how creator Vince Gilligan picks up the threads from the Season Two finale. For fans of the show, that means we're finally going to know what's happened to Walter during and after the plane crash. That's just an assumption because when it comes to Breaking Bad, you're never truly sure what's going to happen next.
(S06E11) "No one knows who survived that terrible plane crash. Or more importantly, who didn't." - Mary
The plane crash that happened in episode "Boom Crunch" left us wondering if some of the Wisteria Lane citizens would make it alive or not. My predictions were that Karl, Celia and Mona would die. Some TV Squad readers predicted that Lynette would lose one of her yet-to-be-born twins because she threw herself in harm's way to protect one of the Solises kids.
Desperate Housewives' first episode of 2010 confirmed some of our predictions while treating us to the much advertised what if/ flashfoward episode of the series.
Which prediction was right? Answers and my two cents about the "what if" sequences, and more, coming up!
(S06E10) "Your mom needs help, and so does Mike." - Susan to Dylan
There we go, dear TV Squad readers, a few of our wishes and theories concerning Desperate Housewives have come true this week in the Christmas-themed installment of the show. I mentioned a few weeks back that I wanted Dylan, Katherine's daughter, to come back to Wisteria Lane and help her mother, and it came true. And two weeks ago, a few of you predicted the accurate turn of events concerning Katherine's stabbing.
But Katherine's crazy storyline wasn't the important event of the last episode of 2009. As teased for weeks, the lives of the Wisteria Lane citizens were rocked by a boom and a crunch.
We told you several days ago about the plane crash that will happen on Desperate Housewives later this season (it may or may not be an Oceanic plane, there are conflicting reports on that). Here's the first pic from the scene, with all of its devastation. The Daily Mail has more.
Creator Marc Cherry says the crash will kill several characters.

Yes, you read that headline right: an Oceanic Airlines plane is going to crash on Wisteria Lane.
One of the big ratings stunts on Desperate Housewives this season will be a plane crash that happens in the ladies' neighborhood that will affect everyone on the show (when a plane crashes in your neighborhood that's bound to happen). But a source at ABC tells E! that the plane will be an Oceanic plane, in a nod to Lost. No, it won't be the same plane, Oceanic 815, just a plane from the same airline. So don't expect time travel or polar bears running around Gabrielle's lawn. Although a weird crossover like that might be fascinating to see. Of course, I wonder how this billboard from FlashForward could possibly be right if this happens.
This isn't the first time the airline has shown up on a non-ABC show. The pic above is from FOX's The War At Home.
(S02E13) Cause and effect, random selection, grief, life and death... "My father is my hero, he's just decent." Breaking Bad covered all that and more in the season finale, setting up Walter White's life after successful surgery that bought him more time. The question was this when the end credits rolled, what will that life be for the New Mexico science teacher after all that's come before?
Anyone out there who thinks they know is lying because only creator Vince Gilligan has a handle on what's been going on and what's to come. What we do know after watching the season finale is this: Breaking Bad is as good as any other drama currently on television, and that includes Lost, Mad Men, House, 24 and the other potential Emmy nominees for Outstanding Drama Series.
Some very talented Lost fan took plane crash clips from the last three seasons and edited them together in a sequence to show what was happening as the plane crashed. Even though the editor doesn't seem to think it's very good, it really is. Sure, the time doesn't match up exactly, but it's pretty damn close. The plane crash is shown in almost real time from the perspective of the passengers, The Others, and Desmond. It shows the cause-and-effect of the near-implosion of the hatch when Desmond doesn't push the button. It's very exciting, though I kind-of think it wouldn't make any sense to anyone who doesn't watch Lost.
Video is after the jump:
Lost fans will get that title immediately and probably even snicker. It refers to a recent episode where Ben tells John Locke all about a "magic box" on the island where you can wish for something and it will suddenly appear.
The "Dad in a Box" music video is after the jump.
It's always terrible when someone dies, of course, but we're used to writing "at 75" or "at 83." Now twice in the past two weeks we've had to write up the obit of a celeb 20 or under (Daniel Smith was the first).
Pablo Santos, the star of the short-lived WB series Greetings From Tucson (which was actually pretty good) died in Mexico yesterday when the small plane he was flying in crashed on approach to the runway. The crash is being investigated.
Besides the WB sitcom, Santos had roles in Alias, The Shield, Law and Order: SVU, The Proud Family, Boston Public, and others. He had two movies this year, Gettin' Some Jail Time and the TV movie Walkout. (Santos is on the far right in the picture.)
I'm not the most sensitive guy in the world, but even I cringed a bit when Conan O'Brien's opening sketch featured the Emmy host in a plane crash, on the very same day 49 people died in a plane crash in Kentucky. Sure, the bit was probably taped days ago, but couldn't they have edited that scene out and had a regular opening? They probably could have just opened with Conan already on the island, meeting Hurley.
TV station owners and other officials in Kentucky weren't too happy with it either, but it was a live telecast and they didn't know about it beforehand. Dateline Hollywood gives their take on the skit and a video.
What do you think?
