Fall Preview: Get scoop on all your favorite returning shows
Castle (Nathan Fillion) is, of course, expressing his excitement about having finally hooked up with his muse, NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) after four long seasons of will-they-won't-they drama. Had it all been a dream, it would have been a nightmare scenario for fans — and for the show's creator, Andrew W. Marlowe.
"We had kept them apart as much as we could while still being credible," Marlowe tells TVGuide.com...

I've been worried about Booth and Brennan breaking up all summer. Give me a Bones scoop that will make me feel better. — Whitney
ADAM: I hear the season's second episode involves the murder of a high-profile and cutthroat divorce attorney. (Suspect No. 1: His secretary, who apparently was having an affair with the boss' wife!) But naturally, having Booth and Brennan observe some of the victim's clients whose relationships are falling apart will make them examine their own strained relationship. "[It's] at a time when Booth and Brennan are just coming back together after being separated so long," executive producer Stephen Nathan says. "It's a very difficult thing when you have just started a family and all of a sudden it's torn asunder. It will be an issue that exists between them."

Things are about to get awfully busy on TV, as the February sweeps kick into gear tonight, meaning an end to the midwinter repeats for several weeks and blockbuster events over the next few weekends, starting with Sunday's Super Bowl on NBC, and continuing with the Grammys on CBS and the Oscars on ABC — just a guess, but these aren't listed merely sequentially but also in terms of audience buzz. (Adele joining the Grammy live-performance lineup makes that show instantly more interesting than anything that's likely to happen with this year's underpowered Oscars lineup.)
Slap on your flapper dresses and tailcoat tuxedos. The Vampire Diaries is flashing back to the roaring '20s.
In Thursday's episode, Stefan (Paul Wesley) will revisit a piece of his past, one in which he doesn't actually remember (thank goodness for diaries!), but is filled with blood and a serious disregard for human life and emotions. How horrifying is it? Let's just say that next to Ripper Stefan, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) actually looks pretty tame.
Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder Says Damon Is, Like, So Pissed

Masi Oka, Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan
Heroes alums Masi Oka (Hiro) and Jack Coleman (Noah "Horn-Rimmed Glasses" Bennet) have landed fun new gigs on CBS procedurals, both as characters named Max. "I'm playing an odd little man named Max Bergman," says Hawaii Five-0 addition Masi, who'll begin recurring in Episode 4. "He's brilliant at two things — being the Honolulu medical examiner and playing the piano, which he does in his autopsy-room office to help him think."
Meanwhile, on The Mentalist, Jack pops up...
