Viva la Revolution!
NBC's hit genre series finally returned last week and quickly proved that no one is safe. Danny (Graham Rogers) paid the ultimate price, dying a hero after shooting down one of Monroe's (David Lyons) choppers. So how will Danny's death change the series? And what's next for the rebels? The cast of Revolution dished what's in store at Saturday's WonderCon panel, moderated by this reporter, who was able to get scoop on the finale, a steamy kiss, a kidnapping, torture and much, much more.

Not since the fall TV onslaught has there been a weekend this cluttered with high-profile new premieres, including network and cable (though mostly cable), running the gamut from lavish costume drama to spy spoof to haunting mystery. And there's a really lousy, old-school Kennedy miniseries in the mix you might have heard about. Something for everyone, you might say...
For Law & Order: Special Victims Unit guest star Colm Feore, playing a wealthy sexual predator had its obvious upsides and downsides.
