A couple of weeks ago, I clued you in that a popular Grey's Anatomy couple would be getting engaged and married in the Sept. 23 season premiere. Sworn to secrecy, I could only reveal that the newlyweds-to-be were one of these three couplings: Callie and Arizona, Alex and Lexie or Owen and Cristina.

Astute fans that you are, most of you guessed correctly that either Calzona or Owen/Cristina would be the duo walking down the aisle. Now I can officially remove Alex and Lexie from the running...
If dying is the hardest thing to do on film, then screaming must be a close second. "Screaming is more nerve-racking than doing an intense monologue or a scene in a bikini! It's a very vulnerable experience," says Jaime King, who got her shriek on in 2009's My Bloody Valentine and is currently helping whittle down a crop of wannabe actresses as host of VH1's Scream Queens 2 (Monday, 10/9c). The reality contest's top prize? A role in the upcoming Saw 3D. We polled King for the Top 5 essentials to being a scream queen...
With his award-winning 2006 documentary When the Levees Broke, Spike Lee took the overwhelming horror of Hurricane Katrina and broke it down into individual, compelling stories. Now, almost five years later, the city's unofficial documentarian returns with If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don't Rise (tonight, 9/8c, HBO), only to find a way of life that once almost drowned now being smothered in a slick of oil...
Cripes, there wasn't a secret safe last night on True Blood! Before the opening credits even rolled, we found out what Sookie really is: A faerie. Not that it took a Mensa membership to figure that out, after that freaky dream sequence a few weeks back, with all the chicks running around in flowy dresses and soft lighting. Either she was gonna turn out to be a pixie of some sort, or our girl was an escapee from a tampon commercial. But still, the truth finally came out and now we have something to work with...

Gregory Itzin, nominated for his guest stint as former President Logan on 24, told TV Guide Magazine he's joining Big Love as a senator who's trying to suss out Bill Henrickson. "I've only worked with Bill Paxton and that may be the case throughout," says the actor, who's so far committed to five episodes as Paxton's nemesis.
