Question: I've been a fan of Elementary, and I really liked the story arc last season with Rhys Ifans playing Mycroft. His involvement with Watson, moving to New York, opening the restaurant, concealing from everyone that he was MI6: The whole season seemed to give a fresh twist to the Sherlock history and move it forward. This season, however, with Kitty (Ophelia Lovibond), I'm not getting what the writers are doing. I think she's beyond boring, probably because she has no real reason to be there, and she's splintering the energy I used to feel between Sherlock and Watson, and each of them to Bell and Gregson. None of the episodes this year has grabbed me. Is it just me? Do they have a story arc buried in there someplace I can't see? I'd rather they go back to a crime-of-the-week if they can't do better than this. I love your column, by the way! I can't believe how long it took me to find it, but now I never miss it. — Kay
Hope was a major theme on tonight's midseason finale of Grey's Anatomy, for better or for worse. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) may have given up completely on trying to repair their marriage, and Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) found out some devastating news about Jackson (Jesse Williams) and April's (Sarah Drew) baby. On the other end of the spectrum, Dr. Herman (Geena Davis) might have more of a chance at survival than she originally thought, and Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona are making progress towards a reconciliation — though not necessarily a romantic one.

Katherine Heigl, Shonda Rhimes
It's no secret that Katherine Heigl left a bad taste in Shonda Rhimes' mouth when she quit Grey's Anatomy. Now, the actress wishes she could wash it right out.
Google "Katherine Heigl is a" and you get descriptors that haven't even been applied to ruthless dictators. Among the former Grey's Anatomy star's crimes against humanity: telling Vanity Fair in 2008 that her hit film...

The doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial have seen all kinds of medical cases wheeled through the hospital's hallways — everything from a lion-mauling to train passengers being impaled on a pole (together). But how do the strangest injuries on Grey's Anatomy measure up to real-life News of the Weird?
Patrick Dempsey, Caterina Scorsone
We've always known Meredith Grey to be the dark and twisty one on Grey's Anatomy, but apparently she's got nothing on Amelia and Derek Shepherd.
It's Amelia's (Caterina Scorsone) night to shine (or flame out) on Grey's, with her drug-fueled past putting her career in jeopardy. How does she get to this point?
Nearly five years after her contentious exit from ABC's Grey's Anatomy, Katherine Heigl is returning to television for what she calls an extraordinary series: NBC's new political drama State of Affairs.
"Why now? This project is an extraordinary opportunity for me," Heigl tells us in the video interview below. "I made a difficult decision [to leave Grey's], but it was the right decision for me at the time. I really just wanted to spend more time with my family and my new baby and extend my family and I'm really grateful to have been able to do that and I'm very grateful for these last couple of years."

Parenthood is almost over! What can you tease about the show's final episodes? — Raquel
Have the Kleenex at the ready for the 100th episode! "It's going to be a particularly emotional episode... [that] deals with Zeek's health," executive producer Jason Katims says. "It's an unusual episode in that it's a more compressed time frame than most of our episodes. It probably happens over 24 hours. It really is the beginning of the final movement of the series. ... It's hopefully what will be a juggernaut toward the ending of the show."

Here's a tidbit: "Elsa and Anna get to work together back in Arendelle," Elizabeth Lail reveals...
Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) has made a fresh start for herself in Seattle — but her past will come back to haunt her in a major way on Thursday's episode of Grey's Anatomy.
Just when I was ready to give Dr. Herman (Geena Davis) the trophy for "Grey's Anatomy's Most Horrible Character Ever," the show had to go ahead and throw in a brain tumor twist.
