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. "There's a splintering of the Illuminati in terms of everyone's agendas and what they're willing to do and who they feel is to blame," she says. "It becomes more fractured as it goes along, and it starts to feel like, for Olivia, that this is the one problem that she can't fix." Ruh-roh.
Got any scoop on Booth from Bones? — Whitney
ADAM: When I asked David Boreanaz about the nagging mystery of Booth's big secret — you know, the one between him and God — I was a bit surprised by the answer...
In the fantastical world of Bon Temps, danger is pretty much always afoot. And on this week's Season 5 finale of True Blood, things get especially hairy. Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) and Co. struggle to save Bill's humanity while shapeshifter — and mostly all-around good guy — Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) infiltrates the Vampire Authority headquarters to rescue his lady love's daughter from the hands of corrupt bloodsuckers. But here on the beach in Santa Monica, the action is considerably more mellow. As Trammell, 43, gears up for a morning of catching waves, he talks surfing, semiotics and why there's no one left in Louisiana without a...
True Blood star Janina Gavankar is joining Fox's upcoming comedy The Goodwin Games, TV Line reports.
Gavankar, who plays Sam's (Sam Trammell) girlfriend Luna on the HBO drama, will play Hannah, the ex-girlfriend and mother of T.J. Miller's character on the new sitcom.
On Sunday's season finale of True Blood, at least three, possibly four former cast members, previously thought to be dead, or as dead as one can be on this show, returned for an extra-spooky, Halloween-set season finale. Great, you think, just what this show needs, more characters. But wait! This episode also has a steep body count, my friends. At least four series regulars appeared to die during this hour. It's really hoary cliff-hanger stuff that will continue to enrage you for the next 10 months or so until True Blood's fifth season is finally upon us. Who died? Who was resurrected? Let's do this: I'll tell you what happened during this jam-packed hour, and then I'll make some wildly speculative predictions about Season 5. Then you let me know if you agree in the comments section below. Deal?
True Blood's Tommy Mickens (Marshall Allman) has finally found a family this season — albeit an unconventional one. Unfortunately, Maxine Fortenberry's tendency to treat Tommy as a substitute Hoyt (Jim Parrack) will bring on a new set of problems in Season 4.
"What he wants deep down is a family," Allman tells TVGuide.com. "He wants to be loved, so that relationship just serves both of their needs. Max feels abandoned by Hoyt, and Tommy, even though he left his mom, feels abandoned by his mom because she chose her husband, my dad, over me."
