Motive's Kristin Lehman: Angie's Love Life Will Never Be Her Main Focus

Detective Angie Flynn is married to her work on ABC's Motive, and that's completely fine with actress Kristin Lehman.

"I love the fact that people just want to see this woman not fall into the same conventions so easily," Lehman tells TVGuide.com. "I go back and forth on [wanting her to have a love interest]. ... I don't want to say no to a romance just for the sake of avoiding convention, but I just feel like if we do ever explore that, that won't be her main focus, ever. And I think that's really interesting, because I don't know very many female protagonists on television where their romantic relationship isn't their main relationship. And I really value that.

Thanks, Canada! Motive is Back for Season 2

Kristin Lehman, Louis Ferreira. Brendan Penny

It's not a whodunit, it's a whydunit! ABC's Motive returns for its sophomore season on Wednesday, May 21 (10/9c), doing what most crime shows wouldn't dare: The killer is revealed in the opening moments of each episode.

"It's so much more compelling than having eight suspects," says Dennis Heaton, showrunner of the Canadian import series. "When things happen in life — whether it's something as tragic as a death or as trivial as a parking ticket — one of our most important questions is: 'Why did this happen?'" read more

Motive's Brendan Penny: Viewers Will "Really Sympathize" with This Week's Killer

Kristin Lehman, Cameron Bright, Brendan Penny

ABC's Motive returns from a brief hiatus on Thursday, and star Brendan Penny says the episode, titled "Against All Odds," may present a moral quandary for viewers.

"I think in all of our episodes, you can kind of relate to the decisions of the killers at times," Penny, who plays young Det. Brian Lucas, tells TVGuide.com. "I like this one a lot because this is one of the stories where you really, really, really do sympathize with the killer." read more

The Monday Playlist: Mel Brooks on Masters, Finales (Rectify, Bates Motel), Motive

Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga

At 86, Mel Brooks is still the life of the party, a consummate ham and peerless joke-spinning storyteller. "I've come to stop the show," announces the irrepressible comic dynamo as he does just that, breaking into song mid-interview and reinforcing why PBS' American Masters titled its latest must-see career profile Mel Brooks: Make a Noise (Monday, check tvguide.com listings). His brilliant career in TV (Your Show of Shows, Get Smart), the movies and Broadway makes him an overdue American Masters subject, and his unflagging comic energy keeps everyone amused — including an intrusively visible camera crew. "I'm head over heels in love with myself," Brooks says, only half-joking. read more

Motive: Will Canada's No. 1 New Show Connect with U.S. Audiences?

Louis Ferreira and Kristin Lehman

On ABC's new police procedural Motive, the question at the start of each episode is not who committed a crime, but why. But the looming question on the minds of the show's cast and crew is whether the Canadian show, which was the highest-rated series premiere in Canada last season, can find equal success in the States. read more

The 10 Things We Learned from The Killing's Season 2 Premiere

Joel Kinnaman

The Killing returned Sunday night, taking the two more steps toward finally finding out who killed Rosie Larsen. (That's official, too: The murderer will be revealed in the Season 2 finale.) So what have we learned since last year's open-ended, infuriating-to-some season-ender?

When we last left off, Councilman Richmond (Billy Campbell) had been revealed as Orpheus, a frequent Beau Soleil client, and a man without an alibi. Before he could be formally arrested, Belko (Brendan Sexton III), friend of the Larsens and unstable would-be Larsen, shot the councilman. Meanwhile, Detective Linden (Mireille Enos) who was almost en route to her fiancé learned that the most damning evidence against Richmond, a photo filed by Detective Holder (Joel Kinnaman), was a fake.

On the set: The Killing returns with more twists

Moments later, when Season 2 picks up, a royally ticked off Linden has exited the plane with Holder in her crosshairs. Here's what we learned in the course of our own investigation of The Killing's two-hour premiere:
