Revolution packed two major twists into Monday's episode — including the discovery that one of our favorites is a father! Read on to discover the proud papa's identity, plus six other burning questions from "You Can't Go Home Again." [Warning: Major spoilers ahead!]
Zak Orth, Elizabeth Mitchell
On Monday's Revolution, two of our heroes—and a few of our villains — will come face-to-face with ghosts from their former lives.
While Aaron (Zak Orth) has been absent from the action recently, he finally gets some much-deserved attention when he runs into Priscilla (Maureen Sebastian)— the wife he abandoned in the woods fifteen years ago.

NBC has renewed Parenthood, Grimm, Law & Order: SVU and freshmen series Chicago Fire and Revolution, the network announced on Friday.
"On the verge of our 2013 fall scheduling decisions, we're pleased to renew five drama series that will be important to our new season line-up," Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. "We're proud and very appreciative of all of the actors, producers, writers and directors who work so hard to deliver such high-quality work week in and week out. These complex shows represent a broad range of genres and tones, and all of them stand out for us in a television landscape now filled with one-hour series. We're especially pleased to be renewing Revolution and Chicago Fire — two first-season successes — and there will be more returning series announcements made in the next couple of weeks."

Revolution held steady Monday after a week off the air.
The NBC drama, which was pre-empted last week for a Boston Marathon bombing special, drew 6.2 million viewers and a 2.2 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, on par with its last episode two weeks ago. Lead-in The Voice (13.9 million, 4.8) dipped ...
"It's not UN-weird," says the solemn and seriously disoriented Daniel Holden (a revelatory Aden Young), who's adjusting to life outside of prison after 19 years on death row, to which he was sentenced as a teen for a murder that new evidence suggests he may not have committed. Impeccably written and acted, quietly suspenseful, almost unbearably sad in its aching poignancy, Sundance Channel's six-hour drama series Rectify explores the impact of freedom on the overwhelmed Daniel, his grateful yet apprehensive family and the hostile Georgia small town that still condemns him.

ABC has delayed Monday's episode of Castle, which features the team attempting to disarm a bomb, in the wake of the deadly explosions at the Boston Marathon this week, TV Line reports.

What can we expect for Castle and Beckett's relationship as we head to the end of Castle's season? — Dana
ADAM: The bumps that we've hinted at before will be exacerbated by two men who come into Beckett's life. First, Beckett will be assigned to protect multimillionaire inventor Erik Vaughn (Ioan Gruffudd) — in his private hotel penthouse. "If Castle aspired to be someone, he'd aspire to be this guy," creator Andrew W. Marlowe says. "Castle's really determined to solve the case and get his girlfriend away from him." During their alone time, Erik will ask Beckett some tough questions about where her relationship with Castle is headed. Unfortunately, as Beckett wrestles with those questions in the season's penultimate episode, she'll cross paths with a federal investigator (Carlos Bernard) who might offer some different answers. "He opens Beckett's eyes on other possibilities that might be out there for her," Marlowe teases.
Got any Nick and Jess scoop for New Girl? —Charlene
NATALIE: Get ready for more awkward Nick Miller times!

After Revolution was pre-empted Monday by NBC's prime-time coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing, the network announce that it has pushed back the show's season finale by a week.
Monday's episode will air...
Stephanie Leonidas, Grant Bowler
In the not too distant future, Earth is struggling to recover from a near-apocalypse. A gruff, wise-cracking loner and his young daughter reluctantly find themselves shouldering the responsibility of humanity's survival in the face of impossible odds.
On the surface, Defiance might seem like any other genre show, but the Syfy drama has pushed the boundaries of media consumption by becoming the first cross-platform narrative in television and online gaming.
Our best moments of the week:
12. Best Dynasty Homage: There's been a lot of death and violence on The Following, but until this week, the show had been seriously lacking one key dramatic television component: a catfight. Fortunately, we can check off that box after Claire confronts Emma, the Follower who posed as her nanny and kidnapped her son. Claire slams her against the wall in a chokehold and repeatedly insists, "I'm going to kill you." Just the kind of woman who might marry a serial killer, ay? We finally...
