Is Chase really gone for good on House? — Christine
ADAM: Not exactly. While he has definitely resigned, executive producer David Shore confirms that Chase is scheduled to appear in the series finale. But more surprisingly, one of his colleagues might follow him out the door. In Monday's penultimate episode, another doctor is readying a career life raft in case House implodes under the strain of Wilson's increasingly grim diagnosis.
I can't believe The Vampire Diaries finale is Thursday! What will we learn from the flashback to Elena's parents' accident? — Rachel
NATALIE: For one thing...
Thank goodness we know that Fringe has been renewed for another season. Otherwise this new preview for the season finale would have us seriously worried.
VIDEO: Will two worlds become one in the Fringe finale?
In the two minute-long, movie-like trailer — a shorter version debuted last week — William Bell (Leonard Nimoy) details his megalomaniacal plan to collapse the two universes in order to create a new one — which looks a lot like a scene from Jurassic Park.

Rachel Berry just choked at her NYADA auditions. She should be freaking out, right?
Instead, Glee's leading lady has found a new lease on life, discovering what her new dreams could be. Oddly, a calm Rachel (Lea Michele) is scarier than a freaked-out one, which leads us to believe...
Chris Zylka and Phoebe Tonkin
"Nick is back in a big way," Chris Zylka warns.
Way to understate the obvious! First, The Secret Circle spent time introducing us to the new coven members who would help Cassie (Britt Robertson) discover her magic, only to then kill one of the series' supposed main characters off in the fifth episode. Nick (Louis Hunter) was then replaced by his older, more brooding brother Jake (Zylka), who eventually went from working with the Witch Hunters to against them.

Now, it seems, Nick has been resurrected to track down the remaining crystal and thwart the Circle's attempts at combining them to create the sure-fire weapon against the Witch Hunters, the Crystal Skull. How will the Circle feel about Nick's return? For Jake, it may not be a happy reunion. "Jake's going to...
