Elysium is that section of Hades reserved for the eternal rest of ancient Greek heroes. In the City of Angels, however, Elysian Park, perched near Dodger Stadium and the LAPD Academy, turns out to be the unceremonious burial ground for a man dragged behind a pick-up truck and then shot in the head.
Enter former robbery/homicide Detective Olin, played by the always-intriguing Tom Skerritt. Asked to return from a lonely retirement because of his familiarity with the victim, Det. Olin — or Joey O., as he's known to his former co-workers in Major Crimes — seems more intent on wrapping up an old case of his own than helping Brenda close hers. Ghosts of Those Who Got Away haunt the hallways of Parker Center and, as Deputy Chief Johnson's obsession with the elusive rapist/murderer Phillip Stroh returns to cloud her judgment, she finds some uncomfortable and eerie parallels between herself and the annoying, (but dogged) Joey O.
Though the word "elysium" came to represent the halcyon rest for the honorable dead, its original meaning was ...

The Brothers & Sisters ensemble (sans the actors who play Nora, Robert, Kitty and Sarah) recently walked a red carpet outside the San Antonio Winery (where the show has filmed on occasion) in downtown Los Angeles to celebrate the release of the prime-time serial drama's Season 1 DVD release. TVGuide.com was on the scene to get the scoop on that as well as Season 2, which debuts on Sunday, Sept. 30, at 10 pm/ET, on ABC.
Arguably, the biggest shock twist at the end of the show's freshman year was Uncle Saul possibly being gay. (Those longing looks with guest star Michael Nouri sure implied it, didn't they?) Does Ron Rifkin (Saul) know anyone who dealt with their sexual preferences later in life? "Are you kidding?" he responds rhetorically to TVGuide.com. "All of us [know someone like Saul]." That is, if Nora's brother
It was a surprise to hear Noahs name mentioned tonight. After briefly appearing in the opening episodes, he seemed to disappear. I thought we were going to go through the rest of the season without hearing about him again. But in attempting to address her feelings toward Joes friend Vanessa, Sarah was forced to confront her own confusing extramarital friendship and how it affected the way she feels about her husband. Coming clean to Joe didnt seem to help much, at least for now. In fact, Sarah looked so inconsolable during her solo visit to the therapist that it was hard not to wonder if Sarah and Joe were ever going to be able to get back to the place they were before. And Sarahs marriage wasnt her only problem. Tommy continued to distance himself from her and the rest of the Walkers by officially going into business with Holly, although not until he did some checking to make sure Holly was being genuine in her offer. The flashback scenes with William ...
Sarah, Kitty, Kevin, Tommy, Justin... Rebecca. It looks like Sarahs suspicions were right and Rebecca is in fact their fathers daughter. After all those combinations, the password, which was composed of Williams childrens initials, was actually relatively simple. Although, to be fair, no one knew about Williams sixth child. Including, it seems, William himself. Hollys reason for hiding the truth from everyone, although apparently well-intentioned, seems to have made everything extremely complicated. And really hard on Holly. Did William suspect that Rebecca was his child? The extent of his relationship with Rebecca isn't quite clear, but he obviously thought enough of her to keep a photo of her at the ranch and to make her part of the password. The past played a big role in tonights episode, as we saw in the flashbacks of September 11, the familys reactions (including those of guest star Tom Skerritt) and Justins decision to enl...
