And then there were seven.
The Mentalist finale: Who is Red John?
As promised, The Mentalist's Season 5 finale found Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) narrowing down the list of people who could possibly be his serial killer nemesis Red John to just seven names. But in a final twist and display of power, Red John "changed the game" by predicting — in the form of a video message from the now-dead Lorelei Martins (Emmanuelle Chriqui) no less! — which seven names Jane was going to end with. He also shared this parting threat: "I'm going to start killing again, often. Until you catch me, or I catch you."
Creator Bruno Heller insists that one of these suspects is indeed Red John...
Vanilla Ice: Rapper, reality show star and ... YouTube star? Maybe someday soon!
The singer, born Rob Van Winkle, performed with some of YouTube's biggest musical stars at the Hollywood Palladium Sunday night for the 3rd Annual Streamy Awards, which celebrates the best of online programming. The collaboration was an anxious affair though because he had only met crooner Chester See, musician Mike Tompkins and Epic Rap Battles of History's Nice Peter the night before. "We had no game plan but put everything together last night. It was so sloppy, I can't even tell you," Van Winkle told TVGuide.com....
Nikita's Amanda is dusting off her torture skills.
On Friday's episode (9/8c, The CW), when Amanda (Melinda Clarke) returns to bust Owen (Devon Sawa) out of a Russian prison, fans will learn more about their shared past. "She very specifically targets Owen. He had a life before Division, but when he came to Division, Amanda got her hands on him," Clarke tells TVGuide.com. "The torture machine that Amanda tried on Birkhoff last year — that was not the first time she's used it. So, Amanda has definitely been an integral part in who Owen is today."
Maggie Q and Shane West
Nikita's Percy may be dead, but his legacy lives on in The Dirty Thirty.
On the Season 3 premiere (Friday at 9/8c, The CW), Nikita & Co. discover that taking over Division means having to clean house after the death of its leader Percy (Xander Berkeley) last season. "When the recall order was sent out, 'Percy is dead. Come back in from wherever you are in the world,' some agents complied. Thirty of those people didn't," Nikita creator Craig Silverstein told reporters at Comic-Con. "They cut their trackers out and disabled them. They're out for themselves, money, for whatever crazy ideology and personal goals they have."
Maggie Q, Jeffrey Pierce
Nikita fans won't have to wait long to find out where their favorite cleaner has been once The CW action-drama returns this fall.
The series' Comic-Con panel kicked off Thursday with the confirmation that...
Starting this weekend's busy roundup with a few items from TV's cult corner, by which I mean Friday night TV on Fox and The CW, which each offered up an advance screener.
Now that Percy's out of Division prison, he's having all sorts of adventures... but not necessarily the fun kind.
On Friday's Nikita (8/7c, The CW), we see Percy (Xander Berkeley) enjoying an impromptu interview with Nikita (Maggie Q) and her band of rogue agents. "That is the infamous Percy capture," Q confirms to TVGuide.com. "We actually...
Amanda may be the current head of Division, but it appears that Percy might be calling the shots... from his prison no less.
"I think Amanda is a master manipulator, but I think Percy's ego is even bigger," Nikita's Melinda Clarke tells TVGuide.com. "I think Amanda is a little more realistic but found herself getting caught up in the power and grandeur of all of Division. She's ultimately the same creature as Percy, and gets caught up into wanting more and more power. It goes beyond just money. For the future of Division, it'll be interesting to see who ends up in power. Clearly it could be up for grabs."
Nikita, Maggie Q
Maggie Q once teased that Dillon Casey's Sean Pierce would be stripping down for Nikita, and on Friday's episode (8/7c, The CW), that promise will be fulfilled.
But executive producer Craig Silverstein says there's a reason for Sean to get naked, besides simply pleasing the fans, of course...
Maggie Q, Dillon Casey
Nikita's midseaon finale left viewers with more than a few questions, and star Maggie Q sat down with reporters this month to tease what to expect once the show returns in January.
Want some almost-nudity? Nikita new guy Dillon Casey, who plays Oversight's Sean Pierce, will be stripping down all in the name of the upcoming power play. "He's naked in the whole episode, the one that we just finished [shooting]," said Q. "There were a couple...
