Yes, V has been off the air for four months, but Elizabeth Mitchell promises that the show will come back stronger than ever. The fan favorite from Lost (R.I.P., Juliet) tells TVGuide.com how Erica's controversial bond with Father Jack might change, what she loves about castmates Morena Baccarin and Morris Chestnut and whether her maternal instincts will turn violent as Lisa and Tyler's connection deepens...
This year's final episode of V airs Tuesday (8/7c on ABC), and on its way out, the show drops several bombs that will leave viewers scratching their heads. (Just take our word for it.) TVGuide.com caught up with Laura Vandervoort to get the lowdown on the big episode and what's to come when the show returns after the Winter Olympics. Vandervoort teases the creation of an "untraditional family," a new Romeo & Juliet-like development, which V may turn against the Visitors and more...
Morris Chestnut, V
Longtime fans of the alien-invasion drama V knew not all Visitors are bad even before ABC's revamp of the NBC hit. In the original miniseries, some of the Visitors even banded together to form a rogue anti-V group called the Fifth Column. In Tuesday's episode of the new V, Ryan (Morris Chestnut) attempts to unite the anti-V Visitors once again.

Laura Vandervoort with Tom Welling, Smallville
After spending what to us seemed like an eternity trapped by Brainiac in the Phantom Zone, Clark Kent's cousin, Kara, returns this Thursday to Smallville (8 pm/ET, the CW). Laura Vandervoort shared with us a super peek at where Kara has been... and where her own career is going. (Hint: She donned a bikini to follow in Jessica Alba's barefootsteps.)
TVGuide.com: Where in the universe has Kara been?
Laura Vandervoort: She's been in the Phantom Zone — and apparently Smallville had forgotten that, because no one has mentioned her since the season started. [Laughs]
TVGuide.com: Is she any worse for the wear?
Vandervoort: Yeah. Time passes by faster in the Phantom Zone, but when Clark finds her she's a little bit messed up ...

"We were all surprised when they chose not to bring me back as a regular, but I'm sure I'll be back for one or two [episodes]!"Looking at the bright side, she notes, "The show is about Clark Kent, and I was honored to be a part of it. I mean, my character became more than it was supposed to be. She ended up sticking around the entire season." Stories even surfaced a while ago suggesting that when Tom Welling hangs up his red jacket and blue tee, Kara might be spun off into her own series. In the meantime, Vandervoort has a hot summer planned literally. Sh...
