Jane Badler Returns to V As a New, "More Mature" Diana

V

When ABC's V returns, the alien invasion series will welcome a very familiar face.

Jane Badler, who starred in the original 1983 miniseries, returns to the world as Diana, the mother of the ruthless leader of the Visitors, Anna (Morena Baccarin). While her character's name is the same, the new Diana is nothing like the Diana of before. (Makes sense: The series is a reboot, not a continuation of the original miniseries.)

In the original, Diana was the sadistic deputy leader of the Visitors who pioneered the mind control experiments on humans. Like the remake's Anna, Diana was not someone to be messed with.

But Diana 2.0 is different in significant ways, Badler says. She's a lot more... read more

Bones

Bones is killing me! Please tell me Booth will wise up and choose Brennan in the new year. — Linda
ADAM:
Well, he may have other things on his mind: Executive producer Stephen Nathan tells me that an upcoming storyline about a sniper is going to turn Booth's world upside down. "Booth is forced to confront the life that he led [as a sniper in the Army] when he sees a guy who's perverted the profession," he says. "The need Booth has to bring this guy to justice is going to hang over us for the rest of the year." But in the meantime, Booth will look to Temperance to be his rock. "Whatever his relationship with Hannah, Brennan is always the closest person in his life," Nathan says. "The sniper will affect Booth and Brennan in a very profound way."

In the Dexter finale, Quinn said he owed Dexter one. Will we see that debt paid? — Stacy
NATALIE:
Yes, says executive producer Sara Colleton, who also hints that Quinn and Deb will be closer than ever next year. "Whether Dexter will ever choose to take Quinn up on that offer... read more

Dexter's Sara Colleton: "This Is the Last Time We Will Dangle" Deb Almost Finding Out

Dexter

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the Season 5 finale of Dexter. Read at your own risk.]

While Dexter's Season 5 finale was not nearly as jaw-dropping as the previous year's, executive producer Sara Colleton says she and her team got Dexter (Michael C. Hall) to the place they wanted: acceptance.

Through his relationship with Lumen (Julia Stiles), a survivor of an excruciatingly brutal series of rapes and beatings, Dexter was able to atone for his involvement, or lack thereof, in Rita's death by helping Lumen seek vengeance on her tormentors. With Lumen deciding to... read more

I need scoop on the big Brennan episode of Bones. — Geena
ADAM
: As you've no doubt heard, Brennan's investigation of a workaholic's death forces her to examine her own nonexistent personal life — and to take some bold action. What's the result? "We see Brennan's feelings about [Booth and Hannah] more," executive producer Stephen Nathan says. "She's trying to make the best of it, but it's difficult for her." Strangely, Brennan's big move may get more a reaction from Hannah than Booth. "The relationship that these two women forge is going to determine, to a large extent, what happens between Booth and Brennan," Nathan says.

Nikita scoop, please! — Monica
NATALIE:
Alex is faced with her final test, in which she'll have to kill or be killed. When she's unable to pull the trigger, she's forced to... read more

Grey's Anatomy

After hearing that Scott Foley was cast on Grey's Anatomy as a dying patient who Teddy (Kim Raver) was going to offer more than medical help to save, fans' first reaction was obvious: He's Denny Duquette, Part 2.

Exclusive: Shonda Rhimes reveals Grey's Anatomy musical details

Denny (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Izzie (Katherine Heigl) became a love story for the ages in Season 2. Girl meets boy, boy needs heart, girl unethically cuts LVAD wire so boy can get heart, boy dies anyway.

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

What is the deal with Delko and Calleigh on CSI: Miami? What's the status of their relationship? — Tanesha
ADAM: For the immediate future, they will be more friends than lovers. "Delko having to do things behind his colleagues' back kind of threw a wrench into the works as far as their relationship goes," co-executive producer Marc Dube tells us. "There's been a bit of an agreed backing-off on both sides. It's something that will be revisited, but right now it's more of a brother-sister relationship. They love each other very much. Will it spike again? Probably, but they're taking a little break from the intensity."

Any scoop on Dexter? — Scott
NATALIE: In the season's penultimate episode, there are not one, but two deaths! And not one, but two kidnappings!... read more
