Do you have any intel on Homeland's next season? — Paul, Burlington, Vt.
The Season 3 premiere of Showtime's Emmy-winning hit will begin shooting in North Carolina at the end of May. Besides the expected new roles of a senator and National Security Advisor, the series is also casting actors to play psychiatrist Dr. Troy Richardson (for Carrie, we presume); a grandmother named Lois (perhaps Brody's or Jessica's mom will help with the kids?); a couple of girls in therapy plus a handsome young man named Leo (Dana's new pals?); and a fortysomething guy who ends up being someone's one-night stand.

NATALIE: This week's episode is a game-changer, to say the least, after someone at McKinley High makes a bold decision that will leave their future at the school in question.

I love Person of Interest. Will the Stanton Virus wreak havoc on the Machine?
ADAM: Finch pretty much confirmed in the last episode that the virus was...
