CSI: Miami Finale: Will Horatio Lose One of His Own?

David Caruso

Call it the curse of being on the bubble: After 10 roller-coaster years, CSI: Miami will end its season without a major cliff-hanger.

Fall TV Scorecard: Which shows are returning? Which aren't?

"We've gone more internal. It's a more emotional story that goes to the soul of these characters," executive producer Barry O'Brien tells TVGuide.com. "It is a far more personal ending. You're left with this feeling that the team is a family."

But the foundation of that family will buckle a little... read more

Mega Buzz: Prentiss' Replacement, a Grey's Return to Form and a Vampire Reunion

Paget Brewster, Criminal Minds, Sandra Oh, Grey’s Anatomy and Nina Dobrev, The Vampire Diaries

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Have you heard anything about how Criminal Minds' plans to replace Paget Brewster in Season 8? — Ashley
ADAM:
I was actually on set last week and asked executive producer Erica Messer that very question. The short answer: Don't look for it to happen right away. Messer says she'd like to mimic what the show did in Season 3 when Joe Mantegna replaced departing star Mandy Patinkin a few episodes into the season. "I feel like we come back in Season 8 without Prentiss, and we're functioning just fine," she says. "But there's a void. We need that extra body. But I don't know who that character is yet." Why don't you guys help her out in the comments below?

I am so excited for the "Cuffed" episode of Castle. What can you tell me? —Erin
ADAM:
Castle and Beckett, handcuffed on a bed together, with no recollection of how they got there — what could possibly go right wrong? As you might imagine, the duo finds themselves in a number of awkward — and suggestive —positions as they try to escape. At one point, Beckett even asks Castle to lift up her shirt. Rawr! (That sexist sound is also a hint.)

Will Max and Caroline ever hit their goal on 2 Broke Girls? — Jen

I know, right? These girls need some quick cash. What could they do, what could they...? No! Not... read more

Mega Buzz: Bones' New Baddie, a Revenge Death and Miami Romance

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

So excited for Bones to come back! What can you tell me about this season's new villain? — Brittany
ADAM:
Creator Hart Hanson tells us that if The Gravedigger was the "evil" version of Brennan and Jacob Broadsky was the "evil" version of Booth, then Christopher Pellant, the show's tech-savvy new killer, is the "evil" version of... Booth and Brennan's baby!? "It's too creepy to say that it's like, 'What if Booth and Brennan's baby grew up to be a horrible serial killer?'" Hanson says with a laugh. "But thematically, they have to deal with two things this year that are a combination of the two of them. One's the baby, and the other is this big baddie."

I really don't want Daniel to die on Revenge. At least tell me who his killer is. — Melissa
NATALIE:
Let's put together some facts: Executive producer Mike Kelley has previously said that the second half of the season will show the trial of Daniel's murderer, so yeah, it looks like he's going die. Now, the show is currently looking for an actor to play a high-powered attorney who will defend... read more

CSI: Miami Season 10: Will Marisol's Return Help Horatio Finally Move On?

David Caruso, CSI: Miami

CSI: Miami's 10th season premiere will find Horatio seeing ghosts.

Picking up from last season's cliff-hanger, Sunday's episode (10/9c, CBS) begins with Horatio (David Caruso) badly injured from a gunshot wound but still desperate to rescue Natalia (Eva La Rue), who's trapped inside the trunk of a car that's been pushed off the pier. But never fear: Horatio's deceased wife Marisol (Alana De La Garza) is on the job.

CSI: Miami Exclusive: 24 Vet Is Horatio's New Nemesis

Carlos Bernard, David Caruso

CSI: Miami's Horatio Caine (David Caruso) is no stranger to formidable foes, but this season his opponent will be quite a doozy. 24 alum Carlos Bernard has been cast as Horatio's spectacularly wealthy season-long nemesis, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Fall Preview: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows

"We're going to slowly position Horatio in opposition to a very subtle, but powerful, political patriarch," co-executive producer Barry O'Brien tells us. "He's kind of a Donald Trump meets the Kennedy family. ...There will be a very high-octane relationship between the two. A hero is as heroic as his opposition is deadly, so we're really going to go there with this character."

Bernard's character... read more

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

How will Jim and Pam handle the new baby on The Office? — Marisa
NATALIE:
With Pam's hormones in overdrive, she won't know who to trust, causing her to seek out an unlikely ally. "She's clearly in a position where everyone is lying to her to make her feel better, except for Dwight, and she starts to think he's the only person she can trust," executive producer Paul Lieberstein says. After she gives birth, though, it'll be Jim who has problems. "Usually, he wants to get out of work, but it might be a little easier for him at work than at home."

Any news on Calleigh and Eric getting back together on CSI: Miami? — Lizzie, via Twitter
ADAM:
There will be definite movement on that front in the Season 10 premiere. "Right away in the first episode, we... read more

But for co-executive producer Barry O'Brien, aspects of the journey have allowed Horatio (David Caruso) to do something far more important: He was finally able to deal with the murder of his wife, Marisol (Alana De La Garza).

What's the deal with Calleigh and Delko on CSI: Miami? Should we give up hope on ever seeing them together again? — Megan
ADAM:
Nope. Co-executive producer Barry O'Brien says their cooling-off period this season was necessitated by Emily Procter's real-life pregnancy.  "It was a little bit of a detour, a little bit of a left turn," he says. "But... we know those kind of feelings don't just go away ... They may be made for each other." Hope restored, Megan?

What's the deal with those Grey's Anatomy photos of Meredith and Derek holding a baby? — Regina
NATALIE:
Well, it's certainly not what it looks like, as Justin Chambers explains to us. "You know everyone's trying to be Chief Resident, so they have their own little bag of tricks," he says. "Alex has got one that involves orphans [from Africa]. It's kind of crazy and funny." But! It's just possible that Alex's stunt may... read more
