What can you tell me about the Castle wedding? I can't wait! — Jenna
Owing to the complex story that precedes the nuptials — Castle experiences an alternate reality in which he's never met Beckett — the ceremony itself had to be scaled back considerably. "We came very close to doing the other version of the big wedding... and all the hoopla that's associated with that, and we knew that we didn't want to do quite the same thing," executive producer David Amann tells us. However, don't think that Castle's rush to the altar will scare Beckett — or make the moment any less magical. "[Beckett] doesn't necessarily know quite what has driven him to this point, but she's emotionally right there with him," Amann says. "It's a wonderful, wonderful moment, and we hope the fans share that view."
Can you give me any details on the 100th episode of Hawaii Five-0? — Brandon
As promised, the episode, which offers a glimpse of what McGarrett's life could have been without Five-0, (finally) gives some concrete answers about exactly how Wo Fat is connected to McGarrett and his mother....
LL Cool J, Chris O'Donnell
Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) finds himself on the wrong side of the law on Monday's episode of NCIS: Los Angeles, when he's arrested and charged with murder.
The victim is a woman who has a connection to Sam's time in the military, but as...
LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell
LL Cool J may have participated in CBS's salute to the Beatles earlier this year, but he certainly won't be singing "We all live in a yellow submarine" when his Sam and Chris O'Donnell's Callen find themselves trapped in a hostile submersible as NCIS: Los Angeles opens its sixth season. Last May's cliffhanger found the partners taking an...

Does what happens in Afghanistan stay in Afghanistan? For NCIS: LA's Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah), the answer is probably not.
On Tuesday's episode (9/8c, CBS), Callen (Chris O'Donnell), Sam (LL Cool J) and Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) are sent to Afghanistan to rescue Kensi, who's being held captive by the Taliban after a botched anti-terrorism mission in which she discovered that the alleged traitor she was sent to assassinate is none other than her former fiancé, Jack (Matthew Del Negro).
"I think this is probably my favorite episode that we've shot," Ruah tells TVGuide.com. "It's sort of like a movie. The action's incredible. I think everybody was on their game, when it came to performances. There's some really intense scenes. ... It's the team fighting for one of their own, which always makes for a good episode. There's a lot at stake."
Barrett Foa, Renee Felice Smith
Are Eric and Nell the new Kensi and Deeks?
After years of working side-by-side in the ops center, Eric Beale (Barrett Foa) and Nell Jones (Renee Felice Smith) find themselves in the line of fire on Tuesday's NCIS: Los Angeles. And it might mark a turning point for their relationship.
Eric Christian Olsen and Daniela Ruah
It may not be safe to entrust Eric Christian Olsen with spoilers. "I'm off to go get killed," he says, picking himself up from a shaded picnic table and heading back out into a Southern California winter heat wave...
Chris O'Donnell, LL Cool J and Michelle Trachtenberg
Gossip Girl alum Michelle Trachtenberg guest-stars on this week's Christmas-themed episode of NCIS: Los Angeles, and she has the marks to show for it.
"This is definitely the most action-packed role [I've done]. There was definitely more ...
The periods are a giveaway. The more I watch ABC's lighter-than-helium super-spy romp Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which was just picked up to no one's surprise for a full season, the more I feel thrust back to a different time, a simpler and brighter time when organizations like U.N.C.L.E. (as in, The Man From ...) held sway on TV, fighting its evil counterpart T.H.R.U.S.H. — or given the hokey jokiness of S.H.I.E.L.D., maybe a better parallel is Get Smart and KAOS (which I'm not sure used periods, though maybe should have). I'm not what you'd call a comics maven, so I can't help it that I giggled every time the word "Gravitonium" was uttered in last week's episode. Things get a tad more serious this week (Tuesday, 8/7c) when the team comes across a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who's apparently gone rogue — but as the episode's title ("Eye Spy") suggests, you can't always believe your (or someone else's) eyes.
NCIS: Los Angeles celebrates 100 episodes this week, and viewers will get some long-awaited answers about Callen's (Chris O'Donnell) past, according to showrunner Shane Brennan.
"I've been waiting 75 episodes to tell this story," Brennan tells TVGuide.com. "I came up with this way back in...
NCIS: Los Angeles closed out Season 4 with the cruelest of cliff-hangers, leaving fans to wonder all summer whether Michelle (Aunjanue Ellis), who was last seen dangling out of a window, would survive; and whether Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) would crack under the pressure of being gruesomely tortured. Oh, and then there are the tiny matters of Deeks and Kensi (Daniela Ruah) locking lips before everything went to hell, and of Callen (Chris O'Donnell) being betrayed by The Chameleon (Christopher Lambert), which set off the aforementioned chain of events.
"The [Season 4] finale and the premiere episode for Season 5, the impact of that particular story will have the greatest consequence of any story we've told," executive producer Shane Brennan tells TVGuide.com. "For a number of characters involved in that, there's nowhere to hide. If you think about the trauma that nearly all of them went through in the process of the finale, these things are not easily swept under the rug. We're not going to pay lip service to them and then move on. ... Particularly Kensi and Deeks, their relationship has been altered by the kiss, and then it's been altered by the trauma that Deeks is going through when we left him."
