Gabriel Basso, The Big C
For The Big C's Adam, Season 2 is about dealing with his mom's cancer — and acting out.
"He's branching out looking for compassion from other people," Gabriel Basso tells TVGuide.com. "He's not looking to his family for it."
When the season wrapped up, Adam finally learned that his mom, played by Laura Linney, was fighting cancer. When the Showtime series returns on Monday (10:30/9:30c), Adam will begin to deal with possibility of death from a therapist his parents force on him.

Laura Linney, The Big C
When Cathy (Laura Linney) found out she had melanoma on The Big C last season, she kicked her husband out of the house, bought a convertible and wasn't afraid to tell anyone how she really felt.
What she didn't do was tell her family and friends about her life-altering diagnosis (save for her disgruntled neighbor, Marlene, who later committed suicide).
Months later, Cathy's cancer is out in the open — for the most part — and now that she has been forced to face her disease, she's also ready to...
Weeds, Mary Louise Parker
After three years in prison, Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) gets released in the Season 7 premiere of Weeds — and not everyone will be happy.
Her family, from whom she'll initially hide her release, will return from Copenhagen hoping for answers and absolution. However, Nancy just wants to get "back to basics," executive Jenji Kohan tells TVGuide.com, adding that the series' three-year jump was "a risk, but we needed to shake it up."

Leverage executive producer Dean Devlin says Season 4 is all about consequences, and few events are likely to have more fallout than the hookup between Nate and Sophie in the Season 3 finale.

Devlin says the writers considered the "Moonlighting Curse" before agreeing to pair up Nate (Timothy Hutton) and Sophie (Gina Bellman). "It was a big, well-talked-out decision and we were very nervous about the idea," Devlin tells TVGuide.com. "Every season, we've tried to end the season as though it's our last. So we thought if last season was our last, we wanted them to be together. But we also threw in a big "Whoops!" at the end when they realize they're in bed together."
And that "whoops" will drive the early part of Season 4, as Nate and Sophie try to keep the secret from the rest of the team. In the season premiere ...
