Scoop on Once Upon a Time and more must-watch finales
Sbarge will play...
"It's not UN-weird," says the solemn and seriously disoriented Daniel Holden (a revelatory Aden Young), who's adjusting to life outside of prison after 19 years on death row, to which he was sentenced as a teen for a murder that new evidence suggests he may not have committed. Impeccably written and acted, quietly suspenseful, almost unbearably sad in its aching poignancy, Sundance Channel's six-hour drama series Rectify explores the impact of freedom on the overwhelmed Daniel, his grateful yet apprehensive family and the hostile Georgia small town that still condemns him.

What can we expect for Castle and Beckett's relationship as we head to the end of Castle's season? — Dana
ADAM: The bumps that we've hinted at before will be exacerbated by two men who come into Beckett's life. First, Beckett will be assigned to protect multimillionaire inventor Erik Vaughn (Ioan Gruffudd) — in his private hotel penthouse. "If Castle aspired to be someone, he'd aspire to be this guy," creator Andrew W. Marlowe says. "Castle's really determined to solve the case and get his girlfriend away from him." During their alone time, Erik will ask Beckett some tough questions about where her relationship with Castle is headed. Unfortunately, as Beckett wrestles with those questions in the season's penultimate episode, she'll cross paths with a federal investigator (Carlos Bernard) who might offer some different answers. "He opens Beckett's eyes on other possibilities that might be out there for her," Marlowe teases.
Got any Nick and Jess scoop for New Girl? —Charlene
NATALIE: Get ready for more awkward Nick Miller times!
On Tuesday, Ringer's freshman season comes to a close — and it's anyone's guess as to whether or not it will be renewed for a second season.
Why? Ratings haven't been great. Ringer hit a series low two weeks ago with only 1.05 million tuning in. On the surface, it's hard to explain why: Not only was Sarah Michelle Gellar, best known for her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, returning to TV, but viewers were getting a double dose of her as estranged twins, one of whom faked her own death. There was also whole lot of eye candy (see: Ioan Gruffudd, Kristopher Polaha and Lost alum Nestor Carbonell), and a murder mystery with as many twists and turns as there are Buffy die-hards.
32 bubble shows — which will survive?
So why didn't Ringer become the new guilty pleasure hit? TVGuide.com turned to series executive producer Pam Veasey (CSI: NY) to get her take on why the neo-noir thriller never clicked with a big audience. Plus: Veasey discusses how Season 2 would be different should the series get renewed, and how Siobhan and Bridget have become the "will-they-or-won't-they" duo of the show. (Oh, get your mind out of the gutter!)
