This week, Biggest Loser took a trip to our nation's capital to help fellow Americans lead happier and healthier lives. The contestants meet Alison in front of the Jefferson Memorial, where she announces that the teams will be disbanded. It's time for singles.
Right away there's a pop challenge. Each person must hand out stickers and encourage people to show up at the Washington Monument for a group workout with Bob and Jillian. Amanda finds that she has a few fans who recognize her from last season's finale. They even chant her name. But unfortunately, the same group of gals also recognize Daniel and take his stickers instead of Amanda's.
After last week's revealing episode, we were treated to a much more light-hearted hour this time around. The boys went camping, the girls had a trip of their own, and Clay finally was able to begin the process of letting go of his dead wife.
The boys — Nathan, Mouth, Skills, Jamie and his friend Chuck — are going camping, but Julian is a tad bit hesitant as he's not a guy's guy. "I don't have homies," he tries to explain to Brooke. But with his lame camping references and his extreme over-packing, Julian is ready to join the others on the outdoor adventure. After some zip-lining and scary stories, the little ones go to bed. The rest debate the best sports movie of all time, and while Nathan says an obvious Field of Dreams, Mouth comes out with Coach Carter — a reference to the film that Tree Hill writer/producer Mark Schwahn wrote. Julian, who had all the funny lines this episode, contributed his pick of Cool Runnings, followed by him singing the famous, "Jamaica, we have a bobsled team," from the movie. The conversation quickly turns R-rated when Skills reveals that Nathan and Brooke made a sex tape in high school. Julian, rightfully pissed and inquisitive, finally shuts up when Nathan tells him, "I lost my virginity to my sister-in-law, you don't think that makes Thanksgiving a little awkward from time to time?"
When the Greek mid-season finale airs (Mon, 9/8c on ABC Family), viewers will see what transpires after Casey and Cappie finally locked lips in the penultimate episode. Spencer Grammer, who plays Casey, told TVGuide.com that she hoped the kiss was "as rewarding for everyone as we were trying to make it." So what else can we expect down the road for Cappie (Scott Michael Foster), Casey and her ZBZ girls? Grammer tells us what's in store at Cyprus Rhodes, why she doesn't want Casey and Cappie to become a "boring love story," and how a Greek house burns down.
TVGuide.com: Last week's episode ended with Casey and Cappie finally kissing. I can't imagine they'll get off so easily in the finale.
Spencer Grammer: It's difficult because they've rekindled the friendship with Evan and [are] trying to make it OK with everybody [who] they've dated. It's definitely a challenge between them, but I think that they're really good problem-solvers and creative, funny and intelligent, so they can work it out pretty well.
TVGuide.com: And Casey has some other decisions to make in the finale?
Grammer: Casey's got to figure out, does she go with Panhellenic or is Katherine [Gamma Psi member and Panhellenic president] trying to sabotage them? Ultimately you see what she chooses.
TVGuide.com: And what about Casey and Katherine's rivalry during Songfest? (Watch ZBZ's performance here.)

Abby Rike knows tragedy. Three years prior to her Biggest Loser journey, the high school teacher lost her husband, 5-year-old daughter, and 2-week-old son in a car accident. Rike, who has now lost a total of 82 pounds, went to the ranch determined to live life again. She was eliminated midway through the season when she nominated herself as the sacrificial member of the Black team to go home. The 32-year-old fan favorite told TVGuide.com why she feels she made the right choice, how unexpected her media attention has been and which former contestant has become her at-home support system.
TVGuide.com: Why did you volunteer yourself to go home?
Abby Rike: It had been an incredibly emotional week, and at the end, [Amanda] was on the cusp, something was going on with Daniel, and Shay, quite frankly, I'd take a bullet for. I went on the show to get a life back and I felt like I was getting it. It was never about a game for me, it was never about prize money — the prize for me was life. So at that moment, I felt that I was really blessed and it was just what needed to be done. It was the right choice for me.
TVGuide.com: How did you feel about being put on Jillian's team and separated from Allen?
Rike: As soon as Tracey won the golden ticket, I had a sneaking suspicion that...
Blue is curious why Black chose to send Dina home. Amanda is honest and admits that it was about the friendships she had. Liz, during her interview, is angry and says that they should just wait until they really have to make a tough decision because as hard as they say this week was, they didn't think twice about it.
One Tree Hill
This week's episode answered many questions by flashing into the past to reveal the truth about Nathan and Renee, where Quinn and David went wrong and why Clay is unable to open his heart.
One Tree Hill
Monday's episode of One Tree Hill (8/7c, CW) might just be the turning point viewers have been waiting to see all season. Executive producer Mark Schwahn calls "I and Love and You" a very emotional hour that delves further into Clay's history and the Nathan love-child story line when Renee is featured on Dan Scott's talk show. The episode is directed by star James Lafferty, who made his Tree Hill directorial debut last season. Lafferty told TVGuide.com that this was an "ambitious" episode that "tells a lot of stories that the audience has been waiting to hear."
