It's been five years since CBS premiered Harper's Island, and in the words of another famous island inhabitant, "We have to go back!" A woefully underrated horror murder mystery, the 13-episode series, which is available on Netflix, follows a group of family and friends that heads to the titular locale for a destination wedding, only to learn that there's a killer among them. At least one character gets whacked each episode, always in spectacular fashion. It was awesome, and it got the shaft (no pun intended). CBS canceled the show after moving it from Thursdays to Saturdays, natch, but if they know what's good for them, they'd bring back the dead.

While Hellcats' Dan Patch is dating peppy cheerleading captain Savannah (Ashley Tisdale), it may not compare to his longtime friend and first love, Marti (Aly Michalka). Star Matt Barr tells TVGuide.com he's personally torn between which way his character should go, but that Patch will make a decision soon that he calls "radical."
One Tree Hill

Season 6, "Searching for a Former Clarity"
Although Dan Scott (Paul Johansson) will forever be Tree Hill's greatest villain, we almost felt sorry for him when...
Three months of grisly murders will come to an end Saturday when Harper's Island wraps up with a two-hour finale (9 pm/ET, CBS) that will be rife with "even bigger twists and turns," Matt Barr, who plays Sully, tells TVGuide.com. John Wakefield's accomplice will be disclosed, as will his mystery child. But those two aren't necessarily one and the same. "His kid could: One, be aware, or two, not even be aware that he or she is his kid." See what else the actor had to say about the final bloodbath, why there should be a Harper's prequel and the value of loving a blow-up doll.
Nina Dobrev, Andrew McCarthy

Question: Could you please give us some One Tree Hill spoilers for Season 4?
Answer: Matt Barr (Commander in Chief) has been cast in a pivotal role that will shake Peyton's tree. Speaking of Peyton, I hear she'll be undergoing a makeover (new hair, new clothes) by Episode 3 that will signal a return to her darker roots.
