Covert Affairs: A Heroes Reunion, Annie's "Crowded" Love Life and a USA Crossover

Piper Perabo, Santiago Cabrera

They may play super-secret CIA agents on TV, but when the cast of Covert Affairs came to Comic-Con for the first time on Thursday, they let more than a few pieces of intel slip. Why is Annie's (Piper Perabo) love life about to get "crowded?" (And, more importantly, with whom?) What does Jai (Sendhil Ramamurthy) have up his sleeve? And, most pressing, what does Anne Dudek want to do with Christopher Gorham's abs? Read on for scoop on Season 2... read more

Syfy Returns to Camelot with Merlin

Merlin

This nervy, comedic reboot of the Camelot legend started off with a Prince Arthur (Bradley James) who was a bit of a moron and a young, gauche Merlin (Colin Morgan) who must keep his magic a secret — but it now kicks into serious gear.

Last season, Merlin tried to kill the seemingly innocent Morgana (Katie McGrath) when she fell under the spell of a wicked sorceress... read more

Who's Your Daddy?

Hayden Panettiere by Trae Patton/NBC

Episode Recap: "The Kindness of Strangers"This wasn’t 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 can’t think of a former Hero I am ready to part with, so if a newbie bites the dust, I won’t feel so bad. However, I’d like Micah’s 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 (I’m sure she can’t 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... read more

What's In The Box?

Episode Recap: "Kindred"I always doubted Candace’s “death.” In the season finale, she was lying on the floor defeated and lifeless, but it didn’t 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 wasn’t 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 haven’t watched the episode yet — he killed her.Sylar returned and he’s weak. Why can’t he use his powers? Has he simply forgotten how, or are his injuries so severe that his body can’t handle it? I think it has something to do with the Company. The Company has something to do with everything.Monhinder’s new workspace is Isaac’s old apartment. Nice move NBC, you saved money and time on settings and ba... read more

Did Mrs. Petrelli Join the Other Fallen Heroes?

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 week’s 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? I’m glad to see he still has all of his powers. When Caitlin was washing off his blood, I thought, “Why hasn’t he healed yet?” And then: ta-da! The blood was gone and no marks remained. I was surprised to see that Mr. Nakamura’s 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 don’t see why his death was front page news in Cali (maybe because the west coast is closer to Japan?) — but I’m glad it did, because ... read more

A Heroes Death Paints an Uncertain Future

Santiago Cabrera

What a way to go. Heroes didn't just kill off Isaac Mendez in the April 23 episode: The prophetic artist was crucified atop one of his own paintings by the evil Sylar who then lopped off the poor guy's skull and took his brain. Still, for all its ghoulish gore, this was a profoundly moving exit. "Isaac stood up to Sylar and went out a hero despite his fears and torment and heroin addiction, and I'm very proud of that," says Santiago Cabrera, who played the troubled heartthrob. "I'm sad to go, but was prepared for it. I always said that if this day came, I'd bow my head in thanks because it's been an amazing ride." Cabrera says he realized Isaac was on "very tricky moral ground" after he accidentally killed his former lover Simone (Tawny Cypress) in the F read more
