Madigan will play Kate Murphy, whose 25-year truce with Henriksen's Tom Harrison is thrown out the window when one of Murphy's daughters is shot. Naturally, the Harrison clan is suspected, and it will be up to Dwight (Jason Lee) to crack the case before the warring families take matters into their own hands and shed more blood...
For once, Richard Castle might not be the nerdiest person at a crime scene.
On Monday's Castle, Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle (Nathan Fillion) investigate a murder that could be out of this world. "We have a couple [crew members] on the show ... who are from The X-Files, and so in a lot of ways this was our chance to do our Castle version of an X-Files episode," creator-executive producer Andrew W. Marlowe tells TVGuide.com.

It all starts when the coroner determines that the victim died in a rare way. "We find a woman who's been killed due to explosive decompression," Marlowe says. "There are very few things that cause it, and one of those things is exposure in outer space. Of course, Castle sets off jokingly suggesting that maybe aliens were behind it."

What's up with Paul's creepy wife on Desperate Housewives? — Cassidy
MICKEY: It's clear after Sunday's episode that Beth's mom really wants her to remain married to Paul. (Why is another question.) She even ordered her daughter to sleep with him, which is kind of creepy. Once she does, though, we'll get a very different perspective on the self-proclaimed virgin.
Dexter is getting good. Can you tease what's ahead? — Alex
ADAM: Now that Lumen's abductors know she's still alive, the guilty parties will look to destroy the evidence of their crimes — namely those barrels of bodies in the swamp. That task is made slightly more difficult when...
If you need an intense local sheriff to help Gibbs & Co. work a case, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better fit for the meaty role than Lance Henriksen. Awesomely, that's precisely who NCIS has nabbed to guest-star on the hit series later this season, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
