Mega Buzz: New Love Interests on Mentalist and Dexter and an NCIS: LA Return

Simon Baker, The Mentalist; Michael C. Hall, Dexter; Chris O’Donnell, NCIS: LA

What else can you tell me about Patrick Jane's new love interest on The Mentalist? — Christine
ADAM:
Creator Bruno Heller wants to be clear about one thing: Loralei (Emmanuelle Chriqui) is no ordinary cocktail waitress, and as such viewers should take this relationship seriously. "It's certainly not a fling and it's not a spur-of-the-moment booty call or anything like that," Heller says. "She comes into Jane's life at a very, very low ebb. He's at a moment when he really needs a helping hand and a little ray of light, and she provides that."

Please tell me you have info on Dexter! — James

Ask Matt: Grey's, Once Upon a Time, Southland, Fringe, HBO's Comedies

Sandra Oh and Kevin McKidd

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I would love to know your thoughts on the Cristina/Owen storyline at this point in the season of Grey's Anatomy. It goes without saying that Sandra Oh and Kevin McKidd have been absolutely flawless and incredible in acting out their scenes together, particularly in last week's episode. However, do you think this is a case where the acting outshines and elevates the writing for the most part and makes it more nuanced that what is on the page of the script? While I enjoy watching Sandra and Kevin act opposite one another and while I will always root for Cristina/Owen to work it out in spite of their endless issues and this endless storyline, I feel that the writing has not been serving them or the characters we have come to know.

The Closer Creator James Duff Previews "Road Block"

The Closer

For most of our last season, the questions we've been asking about love deal with its passionate side. In the five winter episodes, we have veered slowly towards the costs of that passion. As I have noted before, the only real promise you ever get with love is that it must end; that we go on loving, in the face of certain loss, is one of the nobler traits of humanity; in fact, it may be our saving grace as a species.

Devotion and adoration are not restricted to things that are good for us... read more

(That decision should be ...
