Dexter Exclusive: In Season 6, Dexter finds... faith?
Last season Dexter finally opened up to the possibility of love, so there's hope that a new relationship could blossom between the blood splatter expert and his child's caretaker, even if their dispositions are polar opposites. TVGuide.com chatted with Off the Map's Garcia, who also discusses Jaime's relationship with her brother and the constant danger a nanny to a serial killer faces, especially when she's practically living with him:

Over the last eight seasons, the writers of Grey's Anatomy have put the doctors of Seattle Grace through the ringer. George was hit by a bus, Izzie was stricken with cancer, and even Meredith died (for a while). The hospital flooded, a man gunned several of their co-workers down, but the doctors are still chugging along.

When Private Practice returns (Thursday, 10/9c on ABC), Pete is hanging on for dear life after a heart attack, Amelia is hitting the sauce, Addison and Sam have reunited even though they disagree on the children issue, and her mystery man from the finale? He's a fertility doctor! Also, Oceanside Wellness is no more. Get ready to welcome Seaside Wellness Center to the mix.

Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh)
Where Were We? After a rocky season with Sam, the pair eventually broke up. Addison then went out with a stranger from the supermarket, with whom she shared a kiss and was enticed by his offer to run away to Fiji. Ultimately, she stood him up at the airport and went back to Sam, still intent on having a child, even though he doesn't.
What's Next? Addison is...
American Horror Story
If pressed, one could boil down the premise of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's new FX series, American Horror Story, to a simple setup: The fragile Harmons -- Ben (Dylan McDermott), a therapist, his wife Vivien (Connie Britton), and their daughter Violet (Taissa Farmiga) — move to Los Angeles after Ben makes a terrible mistake that jeopardizes their family. The only problem? Their creepy new house may not be the best place to start over.
But "creepy" doesn't begin to tell it. There is a barrel of bizarre going on here, and it's all delivered fast and furious in the first episode (premiering Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 10/9c) when the Harmons meet their peculiar neighbors. They include bigoted Southern mother next door Constance
If ever there were a game-changer in a relationship, it would be Cristina's decision to abort her and Owen's child in the Grey's Anatomy season premiere.
What's in store for Meredith and Derek now that they've lost baby Zola?
From the beginning of the ABC medical drama, Cristina (Sandra Oh) has been dead-set against having children. She was pregnant with Dr. Burke's baby in Season 1, and was planning to have an abortion, but it resulted in an ectopic pregnancy. This time around, Cristina gave husband Owen (Kevin McKidd) no say in the decision, which will certainly cause a divide between them this season.
Still, executive producer Shonda Rhimes promises, "The love is...
Slap on your flapper dresses and tailcoat tuxedos. The Vampire Diaries is flashing back to the roaring '20s.
In Thursday's episode, Stefan (Paul Wesley) will revisit a piece of his past, one in which he doesn't actually remember (thank goodness for diaries!), but is filled with blood and a serious disregard for human life and emotions. How horrifying is it? Let's just say that next to Ripper Stefan, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) actually looks pretty tame.

NATALIE: Losing Zola will have serious ramifications on their marriage. "The partnership they've created after all these years is in jeopardy," executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells us.
