Can't wait for the final season of Dexter! Do you have any Deb-and-Dexter scoop? — Claire
NATALIE: As if Dexter hasn't made Deb's life complicated enough, he'll do something in the season premiere that he believes to be noble, but will lead Deb to repeat a past mistake — and that's very bad. As a result, don't be surprised when these close siblings become adversaries.
Deeks and Kensi: What happens after the kiss on NCIS: Los Angeles? — Moni, via Twitter
ADAM: Well, you're assuming that Deeks makes it out of Sidorov's torture trap alive....
You know there's a problem when the corpse starts laughing. All morning on the set of Rizzoli & Isles, Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander have been struggling to get through a morgue scene...
Tuesday's episode of Rizzoli & Isles will feature a case of mistaken identity, but for Maura, it's a case of learning her identity.
For the first time in her life, Maura (Sasha Alexander) will come face-to-face with her birth mother Dr. Hope Martin (guest star Sharon Lawrence), but this is no simple meet-up for coffee. How can it be when Hope doesn't even know that her daughter is alive? Lest we forget, Maura's crime boss father Paddy (John Doman), who feared that his father/mob honcho would kill Maura, asked Constance (Jacqueline Bisset) to adopt his baby girl and told everyone — including Hope — that Maura had died during birth.
So how do Maura and Hope finally reconnect? Does their reunion go swimmingly? We caught up with Lawrence to see what's in store...
Jane and Maura are back to work together on Rizzoli & Isles, but don't expect things to go back to normal.
"If you have a fight with someone you love and care about, [you] don't just reconcile immediately," Angie Harmon tells TVGuide.com. "Things don't just fall back into place. Words are spoken, feelings are hurt and things happen. Fathers that are the head of the Irish mob get shot! That happens all the time! I like the fact that they didn't just make up immediately."

But they looked awfully close ...
"You guys will make up."
That's what Korsak (Bruce McGill) tells Jane (Angie Harmon) on the Season 3 premiere of Rizzoli & Isles (Tuesday, 9/8c, TNT) about her fractured friendship with Maura (Sasha Alexander).
He may be right, but it looks to be a long road back for the former BFFs. Maura still feels betrayed that Jane shot her estranged father, crime boss Paddy Doyle (John Doman), in the Season 2 finale after having promised that she wasn't going to do anything. That surely can't be something that is forgiven in one episode, right?
So how close are Jane and Maura to letting bygones be bygones? And is Paddy dead? Here are six things to expect on the season premiere.
