Curtis will reunite with his former boss, Lt. Anita van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson), on an upcoming episode. Bratt was nominated for a best supporting actor Emmy for the role in 1999. After four seasons, he left the show that same year to pursue a film career.

Jessica Lucas, Daphne Zuniga
Jessica Lucas knows that signing on to play Riley, one-half of Melrose Place's happy couple (Michael Rady's Jonah is the other half), is a risky move on a show so single-centric. For that reason, she says, "What was important to me ... [was] establishing Riley away from Jonah and as having a strong point of view." Though she sings Rady's praises, let's face it: Nobody stays together forever on this show like this. "We're kind of headed down that road," Lucas admits. But first, she'll pose on a beach for photographer Jo Reynolds (original cast member Daphne Zuniga), who returns to Melrose for two episodes this season starting Tuesday (9/8c, CW). Lucas tells us why Riley isn't cut out to be a model, what Zuniga told her and why we should all brace ourselves for the cutest breakup ever.
When Fringe revealed itself to be about alternate universes, a lot of questions were raised. We wanted some answers. So we went straight to executive producers Jeff Pinkner and Joel Wyman to ask them about "over there," as they call it, the riddle of Peter Bishop's existence, how Nina Sharp and Astrid will fit into this season's journey and the Observers (yes, Observers plural).
The Vampire Diaries
Last week's episode of Vampire Diaries provided a major turning point — Elena learned something's up with Stefan, and now she's determined to find out what it is.
In the Oct. 15 "Lost Girls" episode, a flashback will depict a Civil War-era Stefan, Damon and Katherine, as the Salvatore family history is divulged to Elena and she learns how the brothers' rivalry began.
In the first clip, Elena demands that Stefan start explaining his supernatural behavior. Listing off the vampire behaviors she knows only from fiction, Elena questions how Stefan survives in the sunlight and looks in mirrors, amongst other things, and Stefan debunks common myths about his "people."
Watch the clip after the jump.
Now that we know that Fringe is a show about alternate universes, it's time to get some answers about how exactly all this is going to work. So we went straight to executive producers Jeff Pinkner and Joel Wyman to ask them about the show's new direction for Season 2, the future of "Charlie" and how shape-shifting figures into the big picture. Plus, this reporter had horrifying flashbacks to that nightmare called Physics 101 when Pinkner and Wyman attempted to explain how Olivia travels to and from "over there."
