Reiko Aylesworth, Gail O'Grady
If you seek Lost's Amy beyond this spring (or beyond the 1970s, for that matter), you may be out of luck. Reiko Aylesworth, who only joined up with the Dharma Initiative for a handful of episodes, has landed a role in Jerry Bruckheimer's untitled ABC drama pilot about amateur detectives.
Among a multitude of other ABC pilot castings from the Hollywood Reporter, Gail O'Grady (NYPD Blue) has been cast in ...
Episode Recap: "Truth and Consequences"Im so pumped for next weeks episode that my mind cant focus on what just happened! We knew Noah was alive. [To think Jack Coleman was originally cast for just five to six episodes is mind boggling.] I felt awful for Claire, but why would she want to erase the memories of her father? I understand her guilt, but her memory loss plan really bothered me. The last scene, after Claire dumped her fathers fake ashes, was priceless. Elle fumbling with her keys after blowing her cover and Claire putting her fist through the car window shows the shift of power. Claire has never been one to run or show fear, but losing a loved one changes you. I wouldnt mess with her. How effective will Elle be with her arm in a sling? My vote has always been on Claire, but rumor has it she wont be the Elle-showdown were waiting for. Apparently, Miss Electro runs into another hero and he/she doesnt play n...
The Haitian repaid his debt by saving Peter. Jimmy Jean-Louis by Chris Haston/NBC
Episode Recap: "Four Months Ago"Bonsoir mes amis! Leah Friedman (Friday Night Lights, among other blogs) in for Casey tonight, and I figured I'd stick with the Montréal theme. I'm thrilled to be filling in for her for the second in what will hopefully become a series of great Heroes episodes. We all know about the griping (and yes, I've done my own fair share of it this fall) about how the season started out, but between last week and this week, I'm hoping we can all agree that the show is back on track. It was certainly a subtle episode by Heroes standards; more along the lines of last season's "Company Man" than anything else, and as a character study of the Petrellis, Elle and the Sanders family, it worked well most of the time.First off, thank you Tim Kring for finally revealing just how in the hell Peter ended up in Ireland. We already knew that Nathan saved New York from Peter, but in dueling bouts of self-sacrifice, Peter rescued a falling, burning Nathan and deli...

Episode Recap: "Out Of Time"Welcome to November Sweeps. The writers are on strike, NBC is green and Heroes is back!If youre reading this, there is a good chance you are a regular at the Heroes TV Guide blog. Lets get right to it.Last week, I mentioned Mr. Bennets sloppy handy work in Ukraine. I knew he would get caught! He also destroyed the remaining paintings. Two of which, came true in tonights episode. The battle between Kensei and Hiro and Peters distraught first look at human extinction. Many of you should give yourselves pats on the back! As I watched tonights episode so many of your predictions and comments in the past weeks came true. Especially, when Kensei turned out to be Adam Monroe! So, Kensei/Adam and Claire are immortal. I think they remain forever young at the age they realize they have powers. It looks like we will never see Claire at happy hour. Who liked this episode as much as I did? I know its been slow...
Dana Davis, Noah Gray-Cabey and Nichelle Nichols, Heroes
One new Season 2 cast member of Heroes (tonight at 9 pm/ET, NBC) is certainly no stranger to being on a hit TV show: Nichelle Nichols, who created the iconic Lt. Uhura on the original Star Trek — and shared a culture-changing kiss with William Shatner — was "delighted" to get the role of Nana Dawson. The Hurricane Katrina survivor provides sanctuary to her great-nephew Micah (Noah Gray-Cabey) and has become the primary caregiver for her grandson and granddaughter, Monica (Dana Davis).
"I could relate to [Nana] so powerfully," says Nichols, "how she has stood

Episode Recap: "Fight or Flight"What would you do if you were faced with your greatest fear?It was around this time last season that Eden sacrificed herself. I was shocked when she fought against Sylar and managed to take her own life before he could steal her power. Tonight, Ricky sacrificed himself as well. He may not have stuck his finger into a socket on his own, but he did lie to protect Peter and his sister. In the end, he paid with his life. He literally was toast." So, Peter and Elle have met before. Also, the box? A passport and ticket to Montreal! Thats it? I really thought there would be more to it.I am a Veronica Mars fan. So, I was psyched to finally see Kristen Bell tonight. Sadly, I was a bit disappointed. Maybe its my own fault; my expectations were too high. I know her character is going to get interesting, but when? The list of questions continues: Who is her father? Is she good, evil or confused? Do she and/or her father work for The Company? Wh...

Episode Recap: "The Kindness of Strangers"This wasnt the strongest episode of the second season, but it did offer some insight. Not every chapter of a story is meant to be entertaining. Each chapter has a purpose: Some may hold solutions, while others bridge the gaps between clues. I know many have complained about the increase of characters. The truth is, in order to have death, we need more life. I cant think of a former Hero I am ready to part with, so if a newbie bites the dust, I wont feel so bad. However, Id like Micahs cousin to stick around for a while. Not the bratty wrestling fan — the other cousin. Monica Dawson is a fast learner. When Monica sees something — a somewhat simple task (Im sure she cant regenerate or fly by viewing) — she can mimic it. For example, she carved a tomato into a rose and used a "pro" wrestling move on a thief. I think she can only perform this power when she sees something o...
Peter has made some new friends. Holt McCallany by Chris Haston/NBC
Episode Recap: "Kindred"I always doubted Candaces death. In the season finale, she was lying on the floor defeated and lifeless, but it didnt make sense. If she had died, her body would have changed to its original physical appearance. From the remarks she made about her weight and eating habits, I knew she wasnt the thin, pretty brunette from last season or the tall redhead from this episode. Sylar proved my theory correct: she was an older, overweight woman. We know this, because and please, stop reading if you havent watched the episode yet he killed her.Sylar returned and hes weak. Why cant he use his powers? Has he simply forgotten how, or are his injuries so severe that his body cant handle it? I think it has something to do with the Company. The Company has something to do with everything.Monhinders new workspace is Isaacs old apartment. Nice move NBC, you saved money and time on settings and ba...
Can Mrs. Petrelli be saved? Cristine Rose by Trae Patton/NBC
Episode Recap: "Lizards" Warning. This is your SPOILER ALERT! If you have not watched this weeks episode, please do not read this blog/recap until you do . . . Leapin' regenerating lizards! I jumped out of my seat at the end of the show and did a happy dance. This episode was all about the heroes we know, love and have missed!We knew Peter survived. We also knew he got a haircut and lost his memory. Does the box really hold his past? Im glad to see he still has all of his powers. When Caitlin was washing off his blood, I thought, Why hasnt he healed yet? And then: ta-da! The blood was gone and no marks remained. I was surprised to see that Mr. Nakamuras death made California news. Did that shock anyone else? I know the guy was a big time CEO in Japan, but he was murdered in New York and I dont see why his death was front page news in Cali (maybe because the west coast is closer to Japan?) but Im glad it did, because ...
Will this be the last we see of Mr. Nakamura? George Takei by Chris Haston/NBC
Episode Recap: "Four Months Later...." (September 24, 2007)Of all the shows I follow, this was the premiere that had me fidgeting in my cubicle all day. I have never missed an episode. I nearly fell out of my chair when I received an email this past summer, saying that I would be the new Heroes blogger. This blog is important to TV Guide and Heroes fans alike. I myself used to read it every Tuesday morning before and after meeting my co-workers around the Heroes water-cooler. Needless to say, I hope I live up to all of your expectations, because this show just gets better and better!First off, the symbol. You know what Im talking about - the RNA strand that pops up everywhere. Tonight, it was painted in red on Mrs. Petrelli and Mr. Nakamuras (may he rest in hero peace) torn photos, drawn by Molly, fashioned around Peters (he lives!) neck and carved within the handle of the famous Kensei/Hiro sword. So, what exactly does it mean? One known fact: When you receive a p...
