This week's episode of Smallville brings together Lois Lane (Erica Durance) and Perry White (Michael McKean) for their first meeting, though Perry's return comes as a surprise to Clark as he shows up on the arm of his mother, Martha Kent (Annette O'Toole). TVGuide.com caught up with O'Toole and McKean — whose real-life married couple banter is hilarious — to get the details on the evolution of their characters since we last saw them and if they'll return for more next season. Plus: Who really is the Red Queen?
The CW is going to have a vampire night.
On Thursdays this summer, the network will air the canceled CBS series Moonlight, starring Alex O'Loughlin as vampire detective Mick St. John, following repeats of...
On this week's One Tree Hill, some couples finally formed while another called it quits. And while Nathan tried to remain supportive, his wife Haley kept falling deeper and deeper into depression and despair.
Although Haley tries to put on a brave face, it seems the jig is up when she acts complacent towards her husband and serves her son Chinese food for breakfast. She later shows up for her music video shoot but leaves before it even begins. When her manager Miranda gets ahold of her, Haley asks what the big deal is and says she's busy making soup. She then hangs up the phone and continues to agonize over perfecting her mother's famous recipe. When Jamie knocks over the bowl by accident, Haley flips out as Nathan watches his wife crumbling from afar. Haley later stars drinking and when she sits at her piano and drops her martini, she then decides to knock the candle over and let it go up in flames. When Nathan comes racing towards her and asks what happened she simply says, "I'm going to call my mom." Looks like Haley is in full-on denial and needs some help pronto.
This week on Gossip Girl, several characters took steps that could lead to some big transitions in their lives: Vanessa accepted an overseas summer internship, Blair decided to change colleges and William tried to get his family back.
Nothing to Talk About
In the wake of Vanessa's acceptance to Tisch, Dan and Vanessa agreed to make a list of topics they shouldn't discuss. (Did they learn nothing from Lily and Rufus' ill-advised list incident in the past?!) Thankfully, this left them with little to talk about. But then Rufus told Dan that Vanessa was accepting a three-month internship in Haiti. Vanessa eventually decided she wouldn't take it — she claimed she wasn't turning it down for Dan, but for herself, because she didn't want to be apart from him for that long. However, Dan's pretty observant and he saw she really wanted to take this internship. So he basically followed the old adage that goes, "If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it's yours. If it doesn't, it was never yours to keep."
In this week's episode of Smallville, Chloe and Tess become trapped in Watchtower as the fortress locks down to prevent the Kandorians from accessing information. Elsewhere, Clark finds out the rest of the Kandorians now have powers, leading to a confrontation with Zod that leaves our favorite archer in green near death.
Due to a last minute vacation, I won't be able to post a full recap of "Sacrifice" until much later, so this week I'm asking for your help with the recap! Post your thoughts on the episode below and we'll discuss when I return.
Pestilence has unleashed a swine flu-like virus on the people forcing Sam and Dean to turn to a demon for help in finding the Horseman. This leads the brothers to a "friend" from Sam's Stanford days and before the end of "The Devil You Know" Bobby gets an interesting proposition. How does he react? Will he say yes?
So even though this episode is all about finding Pestilence, Sam and Dean never have a face-to-face with him. I have to say I'm glad we get a reprieve for another week. I totally envisioned me closing my eyes every time Pestilence appeared. The two minutes he was on in "Hammer of the Gods" was so disgusting I couldn't even watch it again. But no worries. The only traces we did see of the deadly horseman in "The Devil You Know" are the victims of the virus he created and those flies that appeared during his "phone call" with Brady. Although those instant flies were creepy, weren't they?
Matt Davis tells TVGuide.com that it's looking pretty likely that Alaric Saltzman, the teacher and part-time vampire slayer he plays on The Vampire Diaries, will be back for Season 2. To commemorate that good news, we decided to count the ways we love Alaric.
1. Alaric's a great foil for Damon.
Alaric first teamed up with Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) to save Damon's brother Stefan (Paul Wesley); this time the odd pairing will have to protect...
It's been a long two-month hiatus, but One Tree Hill has finally returned for four more episodes. After a very long montage to remind us where we left off — as if we forgot — Brooke says, "Good morning, boyfriend" to Julian. It's nice to see them together again. But while one couple is back and better than ever, two couples are splitting before they were even really a pair.
Grubbs and Miranda
I'm not quite sure when these two became a storyline, but a few episodes prior, Miranda, the somewhat cold Brit who is in charge of Haley's record deal, discovered that Grubbs, the Tric bartender, had quite the musical talent. Just as he decided to give recording a go — and that he also has feelings for the girl — Miranda learns she's getting deported back to England. So what does one do when their love is about to leave? Propose of course.
This week on Gossip Girl, we finally got to meet the often talked of but previously not seen Dr. William van der Woodsen (William Baldwin)! And his arrival coincided with many characters getting territorial: Rufus thought William was moving in on his new family; Jenny made a move on Nate; Vanessa took Dan's spot at Tisch; and Chuck tried to stop Blair from moving on.
In this episode of Smallville, the Blur's photo is snapped while Lois investigates the early prison release of ex-District Attorney Raymond Sacks. In an attempt to get the photo back, Lois and Clark run into Checkmate agent Maxwell Lord. Elsewhere, Chloe uncovers Zod's big secret.
The episode opens on Ray Sacks' welcome home party. The speakeasy environment speaks more than words on how much of a sleaze he is, but we already know he tried to kill...
