Will the secret that the Five rigged the presidential election come out on Scandal? — Hailee
NATALIE: That's what the — oh my goodness, I love what Shonda Rhimes calls them — Illuminati will hope to prevent in the coming episodes.

Flash! (Ah-ahhhhh!) Talk about being back with a bang. Sci Fi Channel's revisiting of Flash Gordon gave the network boffo numbers with last week's premiere. As the series continues Fridays at 8 pm/ET, TVGuide.com grabbed a hold of Flash himself, Smallville alum Eric Johnson, to share a peek into his out-of-this-world new world.
TVGuide.com: How did you go about acquainting yourself with Flash, who has been embodied by comic strips, cheesy movies....?Eric Johnson: There have been a lot of different incarnations of him — he's 75 years old — so I just got on the Internet.
