He's spent the last five seasons as Mozzie, sidekick supreme to slick conman Neal (Matt Bomer), but for Thursday's White Collar (9/8c, USA), Willie Garson stepped behind the camera for the first time to fulfill a lifelong dream.
[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from Tuesday's episode of Sons of Anarchy. Read at your own risk.]
Plans often backfire on Sons of Anarchy, and no one is more keenly aware of that at the moment than Dr. Tara Knowles.
Last week, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) learned that Tara (Maggie Siff) faked her pregnancy — and a miscarriage — as part of an elaborate scheme to keep Gemma (Katey Sagal) from being able to gain custody of Jax and Tara's sons should Tara end up in jail for the charges pending against her. On Tuesday's episode...
Tim DeKay, Matt Bomer
Oh, how the tables have turned on the new season of White Collar.
When the series returns for Season 5 on Thursday (9/8c, USA), it will be longtime FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) — not con man Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) — behind bars. "I think I look just as good as Matt Bomer in orange," Tim DeKay tells TVGuide.com. "It's going to be called...
On FX's Sons of Anarchy, Jax Teller's road to hell has always been paved with good intentions. That will be especially true in Season 6.
"Jax is trying to balance being a good father, a good husband and a good leader of an outlaw organization — therein lies the tragic flaws of this guy," creator and executive producer Kurt Sutter tells TVGuide.com. "He's got this sense of, 'I can unplug us from all the bad sh--. Let's go legit — let's head in that direction because that's going to keep us alive.' As the season progresses, the question is: How do you unplug if people perceive you as the source of power? And is it too late? Are things set in motion in such a way where it just can't be done? That's really the quest for him this season."

Money makes the world go 'round, but on the third season of HBO's Treme, it just makes life in post-Katrina New Orleans that much harder.
"The first season you saw the people come back," co-creator David Simon tells TVGuide.com. "The second season, the problems began to come back. And this third season, some money and some opportunity starts to present itself. But in this country, nothing is free and nothing is without strings. Everything is a hard choice."
Cheers to Khandi Alexander for her tour de hurricane force on Treme.

As her character, bar owner LaDonna Batiste Williams, raged at the rapist who attacked her — and the legal system that temporarily freed him due to a clerical error — Alexander powerfully embodied the citywide anger at the lawlessness in post-Katrina New Orleans. The actress, who was unjustly denied an Emmy nomination for her fiercely nuanced turn as a recovering drug-addict mother in Treme creator David Simon's 2000 miniseries, The Corner, deserves long-overdue recognition for this role.

Clarke Peters, Treme
From the beginning, Treme co-creator and executive producer Eric Overmyer has insisted that HBO's post-Katrina New Orleans drama is a different animal from The Wire.
And Overmyer says Sunday's 80-minute finale (10/9c on HBO) proves the point again. While Overmyer's co-creator David Simon often ended seasons of The Wire with big thematic statements, Overmyer says their approach with Treme was to remain solely focused on the characters...
In its own way, the sudden death of Treme co-executive producer David Mills just days before the series premiere is a potent metaphor for the show itself.
