There's a new face in the squad room this season on Major Crimes.
Former My Name Is Earl star Nadine Velazquez joins the cast of the TNT drama Monday (9/8c, TNT) as Deputy District Attorney Emma Rios, a bright and ambitious young prosecutor who's been assigned to work with the Major Crimes Unit. Unfortunately, Capt. Raydor (Mary McDonnell) & Co. don't exactly extend the warmest welcome.

"They're not gentle and they're not holding my hand in any way," Velazquez tells TVGuide.com of her character's interaction with her new colleagues....
Peter Sarsgaard, The Killing
The Season 3 premiere of The Killing introduced viewers to Ray Seward, an inmate who is 30 days from being executed for brutally murdering his wife. But did he actually do it?
The Killing: Does Season 3 show signs of life?
Like almost every element of the show, Seward (an incredibly creepy Peter Sarsgaard) remains a mystery. The enigma surrounding the character is initially based on a series of contradictions. After bashing a prison chaplain's face in on the premiere, Seward proudly takes credit for his wife's murder and recounts in graphic detail the strength it took to kill her. But throughout the episode, Detective Linden (Mireille Enos) finds proof that suggests that Seward's wife was possibly murdered by a serial killer who's racked up more than a dozen other victims while Seward was in prison. Similarly, Seward talks about his son to manipulate a prison guard, but flatly denies having a child when being questioned by Linden.
Is it all just a series of mind games? Yes and no. "In that atmosphere, if you are not built like Vin Diesel, you've got to find a way to make somebody who looks like Vin Diesel fear you," Sarsgaard tells TVGuide.com...

AMC's The Killing is back from the dead, but did the rain-soaked crime drama learn anything from the mistakes that sent it to an early grave in the first place?
Summer TV: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows
To recap: After debuting to much fanfare two years ago, The Killing seemingly squandered its promise — it was to re-invent the stale crime procedural genre with a deeper, character-driven exploration of a single case — by introducing numerous (and often senseless) red herrings that kept the show's not-quite-three-dimensional heroes chasing their tails....
When AMC's The Killing returns for its third season, Detective Sarah Linden will be leading a happier, healthier life.
One year after the end of the Rosie Larsen murder investigation, Linden (Mireille Enos) is now a ferry worker living on an island off the coast of Seattle. In the exclusive video below, Enos says that, despite the bad place she was in when we last saw Linden, her life is pretty happy. (She even appears to have a new man!)

D.B. Russell & Co. will get some extra help from an old friend on the CSI finale.
On Wednesday's season ender (10/9c, CBS), the team investigates a series of murders seemingly inspired by the sins from Dante's Inferno. But the person who helps Russell (Ted Danson) see the pattern is none other than...
Michael Emerson, Amy Acker
The season finale of CBS' Person of Interest will literally be a race to the finish.
In the penultimate episode of the show's sophomore season, Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Finch (Michael Emerson) learned that The Machine had taken extraordinary measures to protect itself from a virus that was designed to take The Machine offline. Once the virus took hold, The Machine made two phone calls — one to Reese and one to Finch's hacker nemesis Root (Amy Acker) — potentially giving them access to The Machine's secrets for 24 hours. So, who capitalizes first? ...

And then there were seven.
The Mentalist finale: Who is Red John?
As promised, The Mentalist's Season 5 finale found Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) narrowing down the list of people who could possibly be his serial killer nemesis Red John to just seven names. But in a final twist and display of power, Red John "changed the game" by predicting — in the form of a video message from the now-dead Lorelei Martins (Emmanuelle Chriqui) no less! — which seven names Jane was going to end with. He also shared this parting threat: "I'm going to start killing again, often. Until you catch me, or I catch you."
Creator Bruno Heller insists that one of these suspects is indeed Red John...
By the end of The Mentalist's Season 5 finale, viewers will finally know Red John's real name.
On Sunday's episode (10/9c, CBS), Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) narrows down his list of suspects to seven people. And despite the twists and tricks of the past (remember Bradley Whitford as Red John?), creator and executive producer Bruno Heller insists that one of the names on Jane's list is indeed his serial-killing nemesis.

The action is about to pick up on NBC's Hannibal.
