A Viking raider caps off a growled command at his men by driving his ax into the ground. Hard. Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) is as strong as the steel blade — and just as lethal. He's a Norse legend brought to life in Vikings, History's first scripted series. "Ragnar is very ambitious," says Fimmel on set in Ireland, near the famous Powerscourt waterfall. "He starts out as a farmer, but it's not enough for him. He seeks adventure, knowledge and fame."
And to get it, he's gonna need a better boat. Ragnar secretly commissions the creation of a lighter, faster version of...
Glee, Jessalyn Gilsig
When Glee mania exploded last season, Jessalyn Gilsig was shut out of the celebration. Gilsig's manipulative Terri Schuester was so reviled by fans that the show writers quickly wrapped the conniving character's fake pregnancy story line and sent her packing. There was talk of rebound romance...

Glee fans already know the final six episodes of the season will focus on New Directions preparing for Nationals. Vocal Adrenaline will be there — and so will the near-forgotten Sunshine Corazon (Charice) and Coach Dustin (Cheyenne Jackson). As for the rest of the action, the cast and series creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan revealed quite a few surprises during Wednesday's PaleyFest event:
First to arrive at the 19th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party was the host himself, Sir Elton John. Tanned and relaxed from a recent vacation to Hawaii with baby Zachary and husband David Furnish, John was all smiles as he talked about the family. As for rumors of Lady Gaga being named godmother, that's still in debate...
Except for one slightly unhinged and all-too-brief run-in with Will and Emma ("Oh, hey, homewrecker!"), Terri Schuester has been strangely sidelined this season on Glee. Over the summer, the series' executive producers not only defended her faux pregnancy-inducing paranoia, but teased her big return.
"The thing about a show like this is you need villains. We love writing for her, and she's moving to all of us," Ryan Murphy said in July. "I think what she needs to do is date someone who will make Will pea green with jealousy. We're trying to figure out who that is."
Before that happens, Jessalyn Gilsig says her polarizing character will finally re-emerge in Tuesday's episode in a rather surprising way.
Glee star Jessalyn Gilsig filed for divorce, People reports.
The 39-year-old and her husband Bobby Salomon cited irreconcilable differences, according to court papers.

Glee will respond to the suicide of gay college student Tyler Clementi with an episode focused on the day-to-day fear and isolation many gay teens face, E! Online reports.

ADAM: Jason George's role on Off the Map, Shonda Rhimes' midseason show, doesn't necessarily mean the end of Bailey's romance, according to Chandra Wilson. Whatever happens, she says the relationship is important for Bailey's growth.
