Walton Goggins, Charlie Hunnam, Kim Coates

Guess who's back?

Tuesday's episode of Sons of Anarchy featured the return of Venus Van Dam, the transgender escort played by Justified's Walton Goggins in each of the FX drama's last two seasons. But this time things went to a whole new level.

Sons of Anarchy: Walton Goggins on playing the softer side of Venus Van Dam

When Jax (Charlie Hunnam) needed to track down the wife of a preacher the club had killed, he called on Venus to help. (Turns out the dead man was one of Venus' frequent clients.) According to Goggins, coming back for Sons' final season was a no-brainer. "I look for any opportunity to put on high heels honestly," Goggins tells TVGuide.com with a laugh.... read more

Mega Buzz: Walking Dead's Villain, a Grey's Secret and Fire's Replacement

Andrew Lincoln, James Pickens Jr., Taylor Kinney

Each week, executive editor Adam Bryant satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

I am dying for some Walking Dead scoop. Got anything? — Matt 
This season certainly doesn't waste any time getting into the action! Look for a very bloody first episode that offers some quick answers about the people of Terminus. Remember when executive producer Robert Kirkman told us that Terminus leader Gareth was not the season's major villain? That doesn't mean he isn't sufficiently creepy!

The conversation between Richard and Maggie on last week's Grey's Anatomy was so upsetting. Is he ever going to tell her that he's her father? — Karen
After her less-than-great first impression of Meredith, it's pretty clear that Maggie isn't jumping at the chance to incorporate more new relatives into her life.... read more

Jennifer Love Hewitt's "Fearless" Agent and a Jane Lynch Return? 7 Teases for Criminal Minds Season 10

Shemar Moore, Thomas Gibson, Jennifer Love Hewitt

Erica Messer can't think of a more perfect day for Criminal Minds to turn 10.

"Episode 10.1 airs on 10/1. How cool is that?" Messer tells TVGuide.com. "It wasn't planned. We didn't know that until we started back up and we were well in the swing of things, and [CBS] mentioned that the premiere would be a little later than usual because of Extant and Survivor. So it's great timing."

But for Messer, "seven" is the magic number for Season 10. After Jeanne Tripplehornleft the series in the Season 9 finale, Messer told TVGuide.com at the time that she wasn't sure if they would replace her or just stick with the remaining six BAU members. "It was a really big, long conversation with the network and the studio, and they said, 'Let's go ahead and try to find someone new,'" she says.

Kevin Williamson Defends Stalker's Violence: "I Enjoy Scaring People"

Maggie Q, Dylan McDermott

Kevin Williamson is no stranger to defending his work. At the Television Critics Association tour this summer, the creator of The Following and CBS' new thriller Stalker raised eyebrows by encouraging a critic to just "change the channel" if he didn't like what he was seeing on screen. ("I think some people are still kind of raw over The Following," Williamson admitted to TVGuide.com after the panel. "They're fair questions.")

And there's no question that Stalker won't be for everybody. Accusations of excess violence and even misogyny have been leveled at Williamson based on the pilot, whose opening sequence shows a woman screaming as she getting burned alive in her car. But he insists that Stalker is not as violent as The Following, and appeals to a different sense of fear.

Selfie Video: Karen Gillan Returns to Her Comedy Roots on New ABC Sitcom

Karen Gillan, John Cho

Doctor Who fans will be shocked to see beloved alum Karen Gillan on ABC's new comedy Selfie not only because of the Brit's impressive American accent, but also because of the genre switch.

"I started off in comedy actually, so it's kind of like a return to that for me," Gillan tells TVGuide.com in the video below. "I like doing an American accent."

On the new series, premiering Tuesday at 8/7c on ABC, the actress gets to flex those comedy muscles as Eliza Dooley, a young Los Angeles-area woman who has tons of social media followers but "doesn't really know how to connect with people in real life," she says.

Eliza soon asks her coworker Henry (John Cho), a marketing guru, to "make Eliza a more acceptable human being," Cho says.

13 Times ABC Show Titles Made Us Say WTF

Courteney Cox, John Cho

What's in a name? A lot when it comes to show titles. Naming a show isn't easy. You want to be brief but convey what the show is about, catchy but not cliché, original but not too out-there, inviting but not alienating. The last one sounds like a no-brainer, but tell that to ABC. For a network nicknamed the Alphabet, it has been the worst title offender in recent years. (But hey, they are into irony.)

Here are 13 of ABC's worst titles:
