After a harsh smack, he shoved her back into the dark office as the episode faded to black.
"The fact that she has this happen in her place of business is a very powerful statement because she has to go back to it," Strickland says. "It will never be the same thing to...

Hawaii Five-0, Nikita
Despite a relatively lackluster development season, a few shows have struck a chord with audiences: CBS' Hawaii Five-0 has dominated on Monday nights and the CW's Nikita has proven that the network can launch more than shows for young women. Boardwalk Empire's record premiere bodes well for HBO, which already has a hit in its stable with True Blood. On the flip side, Lone Star's early cancellation shocked critics, if not the general viewing public. No such uproar greeted the axings of My Generation, Outlaw and The Whole Truth. For now, everything else seems to be treading water. Here's how we see fall TV's freshman class thus far...
