The Bachelor Episode Recap: Week 6

On this week's episode of The Bachelor, Jake embarks on four very different hometown dates and Ali must make a very life-changing decision.

In New York City, Gia's family seems tough to please right off the bat. Gia's mom and brother are 100 percent on the offensive to break Jake down and even before they dig into dinner, Gia's mom is already badgering our boy. Gia's mom even pulls Jake aside from the table to ask him point blank if he has really and truly fallen for four girls. Jake says he has, but also gives mom some good food for thought about his relationship with Gia specifically. By the end of the evening, she seems to be Jake's biggest fan. Gia has always been very realistic about how, although Jake may be falling for her, it's clear he's falling for other women just as hard but her mom says she has "intuition" that his feelings for Gia are different. Gia shows off her level-headedness (sooo not Bachelor-like) and says she doesn't want Jake to be in love with her yet; she just wants to know she stands out in his eyes. The funniest part is when Gia's brother tells Jake he'll break legs if he has to but even baby bro is won over by Jake in the end.

Getting Lost: Who Is Richard Alpert?

Lost - Nestor Carbonell, Terry O’Quinn

Now that the Man in Black's identity has been made plain (well, sort of), some people from the Temple are not too happy about it, especially Richard Alpert (Nestor Carbonell), who was knocked out by him in the season premiere of Lost. So who came to the island first — the smoke monster or Richard? Carbonell drops a hint. Plus, Michael Emerson and Terry O'Quinn discuss the possibility of their characters' redemption this season. Is that even available for the real Locke? It could be if he returns to his body, which O'Quinn says is a possibility.

Queen of Castle, Stana Katic, Reveals Beckett's Softer Side

Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion, Castle

If Nathan Fillion is Castle's king, Stana Katic is the queen. And in recent weeks, the hit procedural comedy has turned its focus on Katic's character and her back story — mainly, her mother's murder.

Katic, who plays Detective Kate Beckett, tells that she enjoyed getting some resolution — she now knows the killer, but not who hired him —and promises there is more to come.

"It was really a smart way to drop more information but not fully resolving it," Katic says. "I think it is going to be a driving force as we continue to move on. They'll definitely be dealing with it — probably not in the next couple of episodes. But I'm sure before the season's end, we'll get another big bombshell regarding that story line."

More important, Katic says, was the introduction of Beckett's family life... read more
