Will we find out whether Desmond was really on the plane on the season premiere of Lost? — Carrie
MICKEY: "We will answer that question very shortly in the show," executive producer Carlton Cuse tells us. "It will absolutely be clear whether he was on the plane or not." Does this help? We're also hearing that the next time Desmond appears, which might not be for a while, it'll be with Penny at his side.

What do you make of those Lost "Last Supper" pictures? — Landy
First off, let me put on my tin-foil hat so my thoughts can't be read. There, that's better. Let me ask you: Why do you think there are two images? Is ABC just offering us a bit of photographic variety or are the twin images themselves a clue to how things go down in Season 6? Could the skulls indicate impending deaths, albeit in alternate timelines? These are questions worth asking.

Should I be worried about Mer and Der on Grey's Anatomy? — Ana

Rena Sofer lands at NCIS

Sofer's run on the show involves the investigation of a Navy pilot's death. Aerospace engineer Victor Tillman (guest star Marcus Giamatti) and his prototype jet packs become the focus of the investigation. But before Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and his team can get any answers from Tillman, they have to go through his hard-nosed attorney, played by Sofer.

"She's a high-priced lawyer, and she's not afraid of anybody," Sofer says of her character, Margaret Allison Hart. That includes Gibbs, against whom she holds some sort of mysterious grudge that even Sofer doesn't fully understand... read more

Two and a Half Men Exclusive: Did Rena Sofer Have Charlie's Baby?

Rena Sofer by Jeffrey Mayer/

Rena Sofer, who last was seen on Monday-night television near-simultaneously playing 1) Nathan Petrelli's wife and 2) Jack Bauer's babymama sister-in-law, has scored a date with CBS' Two and a Half Men. Sofer will guest-star on the top-rated sitcom's Season 6 opener (airing Sept. 22) as a woman from Charlie Harper's past... whose son closely resembles Charlie. (Right down to the bowling shirts?)Hmmm. I didn't take math, but if this plays out right and that Angus kid keeps growing, I think we may get to retitle the show Three and a Half Men! Who's with me?Sofer's past TV credits include Coupling and Just Shoot Me. She also created (and won an Emmy for) the role of General Hospital's saucy and Brooklyn-bred Lois Cerullo Ashton. — Matt MitovichCraving scoop? E-mail Matt and Mickey at read more

Saving the World: Redux

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... read more

Adrian Pasdar: Heroes' "Flying Man" Swoops by TV Guide

Adrian Pasdar, Heroes

You'd think a rock star was in the building the way the crowd poured into the TV Guide conference room when Heroes star Adrian Pasdar came by for a visit last Thursday. After pressing some flesh and autographing many TV Guide covers, Pasdar sat down with to tease what's ahead for Nathan and that blonde beauty who's gunning for him. Do you know who we'll be taping over? [I play a tape of a female saying, "This is what I can tell you about her: In all of us there is an angel and a devil, and you get two-in-one with her."]Adrian Pasdar: That's Ali [Larter], the Jersey girl.... How's that for kismet? So last we tuned in, Jessica had just gotten her assignment to snuff Nathan. Why do I have the feeling that when the moment of truth comes, those two will end up having torrid sex instead?Pasdar: Well, we do end up in bed... but not like you think. I can't tell you any more than that, but read more
