Justified returns Wednesday to FX with another heaping helping of deep-fried drama. Picking up mere moments after Season 1's finale — which saw U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) let his childhood friend-turned-church-bombing loose cannon Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) chase after an assassin who had just killed Boyd's father — the show wastes no time pitting Raylan against The Bennetts, a new clan of nemeses. But while Raylan carefully navigates the briar patch of bad blood that has existed between the Bennetts and the Givenses for generations, he also has to sort out his increasingly complicated sex life. (And, yeah, he'll occasionally fire that sidearm of his.) If you didn't watch the first season, here's why you need to get on board...
Justified's Raylan Givens seems like the kind of guy who would do almost anything for his ex-wife, Winona. But isn't risking himself for her current husband, Gary, pushing it a little?

I'm tired of Callie and Arizona fighting on Grey's Anatomy. Is there happiness ahead for them? — Nicole
ADAM: The people behind the show are big fans of the Calzona pairing and are committed to seeing the couple through their differences over having a baby. But don't take my word for it. "I really do feel like Callie and Arizona are made for each other," creator Shonda Rhimes tells us. "They're one of those couples that you adore seeing together, and when they're in pain, you're in pain. ... So I think that there's hope."
What have you heard about the 24 movie? — Cary

Admit it you got a little teary-eyed like I did at the end when Lynette was told the bad news that she might have lymphoma. And what did it for me was Tom slowly grabbing Lynette's hand and holding it, after she had tried the same thing with him (before the news), and he had rejected her hand. That scene between Felicity Huffman and Doug Savant with Lynette and Tom fighting in bed, the one that led them to get Lynette to the hospital, was a prime example of two actors at their very best. Lynette finally admitting to Tom that she did indeed have feelings for Rick (but "nothing happened") was such a powerful scene by itself then the cancer scare. I was a mess. You could tell how desperate Tom was getting earlier, sneaking in a marriage counselor (William Ragsdale) to talk with Lynette in a very "ambush therapy" kind of way. Lynette was not about to let Herman's Head get into her head.Speaking of messes, thankfully Susan and Mike cleaned up the possible mess of dueling we...
