Question: I started watching Scandal from the start, when it was simply a problem-of-the-week plot mixed in with a little soap opera with Olivia and the President. They lost me a little bit last year when they temporarily dropped that element to completely focus on the soap opera element when the president was shot. With the addition of the B613 storyline (and possible new Harrison storyline), I feel the show has lost its focus. I was highly enjoying Lisa Kudrow's story and performance only to have the show dragged down by B613's machinations and apparent manipulation of Quinn. I get the fear the show could be the political Love Boat where the guest stars get all the meaty storylines, but I watch shows like Strike Back for my spy action and adventure. Have these writers learned nothing from the mistakes countless shows including Alias and recently Revenge have made with these over-the-top secret maniacal agencies? — Brian
Michael Sosha, Sophie Lowe
Is this Alice or Alias? Something to ponder while navigating the deluxe rabbit-hole theme-park ride of ABC's Once Upon a Time in Wonderland spinoff (Thursday, 8/7c), in which a feisty and literally kick-ass Alice (Sophie Lowe) battles her way out of insane-asylum confinement with Sydney Bristow-level brio. She even has a Will Tippen-like sidekick in the sheepishly raffish Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha of the British Being Human), who stands by as Alice goes all action heroine.
Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu
One of Elementary's stars is misbehaving. No, it's not Jonny Lee Miller, aka Sherlock Holmes, who is currently upside down on the hit drama's Queens set, doing handstand push-ups to get the blood rushing to his brain so he can remember the huge chunk of expository dialogue he needs to spit out. And it's not Lucy Liu (sidekick Joan Watson), who is quietly sitting at a desk with a computer, an iPad, an iPod and a BlackBerry.

London is calling on Thursday night!

Elementary finally unmasked Moriarty, but it probably wasn't who you were expecting.

Irene Adler is alive!
That's the bomb Elementary dropped on both Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and the audience Thursday after a mysterious man claiming to be Moriarty led Holmes straight to his one and only love. Sherlock had long believed Irene (Natalie Dormer) to be dead after discovering a healthy amount of her blood in London. But she is, in fact, alive, having been held captive for the last 18 months. This, of course, raises the question: Why now? With Sherlock hot on Moriarty's trail, how will Irene fit into all of this? TVGuide.com turned to Dormer to get the scoop on Irene's return.
