Glenn Kessler, Damages
Damages fans have been slowly putting together the pieces of Ellen's hostage-at-gunpoint flash-forward all season, and when the final piece falls into place, big changes are coming.
"There's gonna be some major, major upheaval in Patty's life, and Ellen has some coming in her life as well," cocreator Glenn Kessler says. "The ground is going to shift considerably. Many of the things we've proposed throughout the season certainly do get knotted up, and these women end the season on very different ground than they started."
But Kessler doesn't get to just write the twists and turns heading Ellen's way — he literally plays a role in them as FBI Special Agent L.J. Werner. Along with his partner Agent Randall Harrison (Mario Van Peebles), Werner has been working Ellen as an informant against her boss. But Patty may not be the only one with secrets to uncover.

After the much-debated movie event of a week ago, Brothers & Sisters returned to its soapy best — and no one was safe. When we were last with the Walkers, they were swimming their way through "Troubled Waters." But now that they've each found the shore, they realize they're not all standing on the same side of the river. It's Tommy vs. Holly, Justin vs. Rebecca, Kitty vs. Robert, and Nora vs. the World (or at least the bulk of her family). But as the episode poignantly reminds us, in battles of the heart, most often there are no winners, only casualties. Did anyone survive? Let's find out.

Reese Witherspoon opens up about loves past and present in April's Elle magazine.
In the interview, the Oscar-winning actress and mother of two says her divorce from Ryan Phillippe, her husband of seven years, was "very humiliating and very isolating." Witherspoon does believe, however, that ending a marriage isn't supposed to be easy.
"If it's not painful, maybe it wasn't the right decision to marry to begin with," she said. "Those are the appropriate emotions."

Chris Brown was charged with two felonies after the R&B singer was accused of attacking Rihanna in the hours leading up to the Grammy Awards last month. On Thursday, he made his first appearance in court since his arrest, but the arraignment was postponed until April 6 as his attorney sought more time to review the case.
Dressed in a grey suit and white shirt, Brown, 19, said little throughout the proceedings. He's charged with assault likely to cause great bodily injury and making criminal threats and remains free on $50,000 bail.

Jeffrey Donovan, Burn Notice
After two seasons of looking for answers, Burn Notice's Michael Westen will finally come face-to-face with the person who promptly ended his career as a spy.
"The person who burned me, you're actually going to meet in the season finale [Thursday at 10 pm/ET, USA]," star Jeffrey Donovan said. "And he's going to have answers that will only satisfy people halfway. Dealing with any kind of covert organization, they can't ever spill the beans totally."
