Dissecting Alcatraz's Mysteries: Why Were the '63s Being Brainwashed?

Sarah Jones and Jorge Garcia

Since this week's episode of Alcatraz was supposed to air before the two-hour special, "Clarence Montgomery" was light on new reveals. We did, however, learn that Warden James (Jonny Coyne) charged Dr. Beauregard (Leon Rippy) with using Lucille's mind-tampering techniques in reverse, causing an actually innocent prisoner to commit murder using the same techniques he was falsely convicted of.

Dissecting Alcatraz's Mysteries: Is the Warden a '63? Or is he pulling the strings?

Since we already learned about the colloidal silver in the prisoners' blood last week, it came as no surprise when Doc (Jorge Garcia) and Rebecca (Sarah Jones) deduced that there were experiments going on at Alcatraz. Thus, a shortened Dissection this week. Check out two of our big questions, along with a few fan theories worth mentioning: read more

Ask Matt: Terra Nova vs. Fringe, Awake, USA's Leading Ladies and GCB

Question: Just wondering about Terra Nova and the rumors that they'll be shopping it around to another network. It took them pretty much forever to get the first season prepared, I'm assuming because of the special effects. If they wind up on another network, that probably means a smaller budget, faster production, fewer dinosaurs, more focus on the people, character-driven stories, etc. Right? Sounds entertaining to me. (I do confess, though Terra Nova struck me as a bit of a mess in some ways, I was looking forward to seeing how the story played out.)

Lana Parrilla, David Boreanaz, Emily VanCamp

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

When will we learn what Snow White did that made the Evil Queen hate her so much on Once Upon a Time? — Sarah
NATALIE:
April 1 is the magical day. So much is revealed in the hour that Lana Parrilla says she was surprised the story wasn't spread over several episodes. "You'll meet young Regina," she says. "I look totally different -- fresh-faced, doe-eyed, young, fun, excited about life, in love, and then it just gets really dark. It's way before she becomes the Evil Queen." Adds Ginnifer Goodwin: "Folks will sympathize with the Evil Queen in ways they're not expecting."

I'd love some Bones scoop! — Molly
ADAM:
Look for another case to hit really close to home for Booth. When... read more

Dissecting Alcatraz's Mysteries: Is the Warden a '63? Or Is He Pulling the Strings?

Sarah Jones

The person who might've been the most dangerous man on Alcatraz may not have actually died.

This week's episode of Alcatraz revealed that Warden James (Jonny Coyne) might be alive -- and that's not all. Could he be one of our Powers That Be. With the return of the Ames brothers (Graham Shiels and Travis Aaron Wade) and Officer Donovan, who tried to track down an urban legend of gold on the island, along with the reappearance of angry former kidnapper Sonny Burnett (Theo Rossi), Rebecca (Sarah Jones), Diego (Jorge Garcia) and Hauser (Sam Neill) were scrambling to bring these new '63s to justice.

Meanwhile, Dr. Beauregard (Leon Rippy) uncovered a disturbing new truth about the '63s: They are healing rapidly. It's just one of the new mysteries that Alcatraz introduced this week. Let's take a look at the others: read more

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

What's coming up on Grey's Anatomy? — Jesse
NATALIE:
In this week's episode, everyone but Alex will notice a spark that's developing between him and intern Morgan (Amanda Fuller). "Karev's really oblivious to the fact that everyone's rumoring around the hospital that they're doing it," Fuller tells us. "They're spending so much time together, and they bicker and banter like two kindergarten kids who have a crush on each other, so he begins to realize that everyone may be right about her being into him."

I really liked Elisabeth Shue on CSI. But please tell me the show isn't going to try to force her and Ted Danson together. — Kasey
ADAM:
Sorry, Kasey, but I think it's a safe bet that... read more

Dissecting Alcatraz's Mysteries: Will the '63s Ever Age?

Sarah Jones

This week's episode of Alcatraz was short on new mysteries, but it did raise a few questions. Namely, now that the prisoners and guards of Alcatraz are returning to present day, will they start aging again?

The returning '63 this week, Johnny McKee (Adam Rothenberg), poisoned 70 people, mostly because they weren't nice to him. In the present day, he works in a bar and a hotel pool to root out bullies and make them pay. To track down McKee, Rebecca (Sarah Jones) turned to his former cell neighbor, Jack Sylvane (Jeffrey Pierce), who offered up five words that could be essential in figuring out the story of the '63s. See which other new mysteries this week's Alcatraz raised:

Ratings: The Voice Stays Strong, Hawaii Five-0 Tops Smash

The Voice, Angie Johnson and Cee Lo Green

The Voice is still a smash. Smash? Not so much.

The singing competition show won Monday night for NBC, with 15.7 million viewers and a 5.8 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demo. It dropped a tad from last week's numbers (16.1 million, 5.9), but handily trumped all its competition over its two hours.
