I hear Beckett's therapist will be back on Castle. What can you tell us about that? — Angela
ADAM: Michael Dorn will indeed reprise his role as Dr. Burke during February sweeps. But what brings Beckett back to his couch? Well, it's not because of any problems with Castle. Instead, it will be another run-in with Sen. Bracken (guest star Jack Coleman) that sends Beckett back to therapy. "A murder seems to lead to his doorstep and Kate thinks this her opportunity to finally get the man who was responsible for her mother's murder behind bars," creator Andrew W. Marlowe, adding that Beckett may once again find herself out of control. "Nothing is as it seems," he says. "The case leads us into really interesting moral territory for our character."
Are Jeremy and Bonnie getting back together on The Vampire Diaries? —Micah
NATALIE: You weren't the only one who noticed those stolen glances during the midseason finale! ...
Strap in for some new-old voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Another 22 episodes will be in your orbit when the second season of Star Trek: The Next Generation reenters the stratosphere on Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday. And, hey, it's only been 22 years since the season's finale and 15 years since it was released on VHS! That's like nothing in light years, right?
Someone should go ask Data (Brent Spiner). Let's just call this set his showpiece. The most exciting entry (of many) in this set's special features is an extended version of the episode "The Measure of Man," in which Data must prove to a Starfleet court (with the help of Patrick Stewart's loyal, fatherly Captain Picard as his "lawyer") that he's a sentient being in order to prevent some corporate-paid mad-as-heck scientist from cracking open his head in order to study his positronic brain. This isn't just a longer episode — some scenes are shot entirely differently than in the broadcast version. Some you've never seen before. (You purists also get the original version and a hybrid copy with more extra material.)

Please give us some Meredith scoop on Grey's Anatomy! — Jen
NATALIE: Get ready to meet the new Nazi: Meredith! "She's definitely angry at the beginning of the season," Ellen Pompeo tells us. "She's angry about all the stuff that happened, so she's teaching her interns and she's really mean to them. It's an homage to the first Dr. Grey, Meredith's mother, who is the first bitch surgeon, so I get to channel Kate Burton and be mean."
Any good Jane and Lisbon scoop on The Mentalist? — Darcy
ADAM: Now that Jane's ex Lorelei is in custody for her connection to Red John, Jane is...
Castle's Detective Kate Beckett has revealed a lot in her shrink's office this season.
Castle's Stana Katic: Sniper case brings Castle and Beckett closer to a relationship
In the Season 4 premiere, Beckett (Stana Katic) confessed that she remembered everything about her near-fatal shooting, thus revealing that she'd been lying to Castle (Nathan Fillion) about hearing him say, "I love you." But in the show's most recent episode, Beckett told her therapist (Michael Dorn) that she's ready to move past her mother's murder and be defined by a real relationship.
"She is moving towards trying to get some clarity in her life," creator Andrew W. Marlowe tells TVGuide.com...
What is it with CBS sitcom stars and Saturday Night Live? First Melissa McCarthy wowed us with her fearless physical comedy earlier this fall, and this weekend Jason Segel delivered another of the season's most winning guest-host performances (with a strong assist from the Muppets).
