Any big surprises coming up on NCIS: Los Angeles? — Olivia
ADAM: Get ready for some role reversal for G. Callen and Sam Hanna. "Usually it's Sam protecting Callen, but this turns the other way," executive producer Shane Brennan tells me about an emotional episode that explores Sam's relationship with a family in the Sudan, which dates back to his days as a Navy SEAL. "Callen has to watch Sam's back because he's really out on a limb." Brennan also teases a "heart-wrenching" episode that delves back into Callen's personal life, including a love interest. "It's only the beginning of something that will be resolved later in the season," Brennan says.

On this episode of The Bachelor, two gals get one-on-one dates and not two, but three are sent packing by Jake himself.
Vienna gets the first one-on-one date and as the bubbly 23-year-old jumps into the car, Jake goes on and on about dating women he may not normally date, and getting out of his comfort zone. On their date, they take a helicopter to a bridge where they jump, just one problem. They're both afraid of heights? Last time I checked she's supposed to be fun-loving and he's supposed to be a pilot but OK. However, Jake makes a positive out of a negative in saying that he and Vienna can overcome their fear together and bond in the experience and also share a first kiss "unlike any first kiss I've ever had," Jake says. Vienna gets a rose, much to the shock and disappointment of all of her housemates.

Welcome to Top Moments: 2010 NBC Panic Edition!
In this episode of Grey's Anatomy, Addison returns to Seattle Grace to operate on Mark's daughter Sloan, whose baby faces the threat of losing its leg. Meanwhile, Derek becomes more suspicious of the Chief when he gives away a high-profile surgery, Alex looks to move on from his troubled marriage with Izzie, and tensions grow between Teddy, Cristina and Owen after Teddy assigns Cristina a valve replacement surgery.

TVGuide.com spoke to McKidd about the offer, how this will affect Cristina and Owen's relationship and what's next for the triangle...
