Mega Buzz: Miami's Mommy, 90210's College Plans, and Castle's New Face

Emily Procter, Shenae Grimes,Stana Katic

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

Have you gotten any new information about Calleigh and Delko on CSI: Miami? — Mary
ADAM:
Nothing new to report on the relationship front, but I can promise that you'll see Calleigh out in the field much more now that Emily Procter is no longer pregnant. Her maternal instincts will come in handy when Calleigh forms a strong bond with the rescued children of a wanted fugitive in the season premiere. In fact, the word adoption will come up.

Thanks for the 90210 scoop, but who of the West Bev kids won't be going to college? — Maxine
NATALIE:
Remember how Annie inherited all that money from Marla and was thrilled that she could actually afford to go to college? As they say, money changes everything, but not how you'd expect... read more

The Mentalist: Did Patrick Jane Really Kill Red John?

The Mentalist

It was perhaps last season's boldest finale. After three seasons, The Mentalist's Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) finally came face-to-face with the man he believed to be Red John (guest-star Bradley Whitford), the serial killer who killed Jane's wife and daughter. The two had a long, intense conversation as Jane tried to confirm that he was indeed in the presence of his nemesis. Once he did just that, Jane took his vengeance, shooting the man in broad daylight and surrendering himself to the authorities that came charging in.

Spoiler alert: Simon Baker talks about The Mentalist's shocking season finale

But did he really kill Red John? And if so, what does that mean for both Jane's future (is he going to jail?) and the show's long-term goals? TVGuide.com chatted with creator and executive producer Bruno Heller to get the answers... read more

Keck's Exclusives: The Mentalist Star Meets The Royals

Owain Yeoman

Somehow my ticket to mingle with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (that would be William and Kate) during their L.A. visit this past weekend must have been misplaced. No worries. The Mentalist star Owain Yeoman (Wayne Rigsby), one of the honorees at Saturday night's BAFTA Brits to Watch event, phoned me up with a play-by-play of the black tie event, which was attended by the future King and Queen of England, as well as Barbra Streisand, Tom Hanks, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, Jason Bateman, Quentin Tarantino and Paul Rudd.

Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones

Come Monday, Sept. 19, we will know the fate of Charlie Harper.

That's the day that Two and a Half Men will return to the air (obviously without Charlie Sheen). The network announced Wednesday that Sept. 19 will "officially open" its season, with the Season 7 premiere of How I Met Your Mother bowing at 8/7c, the Season 9 premiere of Two and a Half Men showing up at 9/8c, new show 2 Broke Girls debuting at 9:30/8:30c (a special time) and Hawaii Five-O returning for Season 2 at 10/9c.

Sept. 19 is not strictly the first time CBS will begin airing its fall slate of programming — Survivor: South Pacific is set to begin Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 8/7c.

Everything you need to know about CBS next season

Mega Buzz: Mentalist's Red John Dilemma, Weeds' Family Trials and Minds' Return

Simon Baker, Mary-Louise Parker, Thomas Gibson

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

I just watched The Mentalist finale again, and I have no idea what they're going to do next season. Any clues? — Chris
ADAM
: It's simple: Jane will claim that he killed Red John in self-defense after he learned that Red John was communicating with his mole, Agent O'Loughlin. (We all saw the gun and the phone call, right?) Not so fast, says series creator Bruno Heller. "Not only is there no cell phone with any calls from an FBI Agent named O'Loughlin, but no gun will be found [by the police]," he says, hinting that someone is still pulling the strings. "Within five minutes of the season-opener, Jane is in jail for homicide with no way out. And he and Lisbon, to some extent, start questioning his sanity." There we go — the insanity defense!

I can't wait for Weeds to return! How will Nancy be different after "Plan C"? — Amanda
NATALIE:
Don't assume that being behind bars has taught Nancy anything.... read more

Mega Buzz: NCIS' Mystery Photo, More Ned on Thrones and Castle's New Boss

Michael Weatherly, Sean Bean, Nathan Fillion

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

Who did Tony see in the photograph in the NCIS finale? Please tell me they're not going to break up the team! — Melanie
ADAM:
Executive producer Gary Glasberg gives us a hint. "It will be someone that we recognize," he says, adding we'll get that answer in the season premiere. We'll also get some serious intel on that microchip that E.J. found in her co-worker's arm. New theory: These mysteries are totally connected, right?

I can't believe Game of Thrones killed off Ned Stark! Please console me with scoop. — Mark
NATALIE:
Does this help? Although Ned Stark was beheaded on the Sept of Baelor, it's not... read more

Ask Matt: Finale Fever, Cougar Town, The Killing, Cancellation Fallout and More!

Courteney Cox

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

Question: I know that last week was packed with season finales, talk of cancellations, and predictions of the successes for next fall, but I hope The Good Wife might get some attention. I'm in no way a TV expert, but the gestalt of the last scene was surprising. From the editing to the acting to the music (so out of place for the show, but somehow appropriate at the same time), those few minutes just felt like what great TV is. In particular, the editing of the elevator ride made me feel as though I was watching a cabler. While on the page the plot was perhaps mundane or even cliché, the execution was impressive. — Erin

Matt's TV Week in Review

Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles

Welcome to the season finale/Upfront edition of our Week in Review, recapping one of the busiest weeks of any TV year. Every day a different splashy song and dance (in some cases, literally) heralding the new shows that are going to save network TV, while at night the season-ending sweeps frenzy means potentially game-changing moments on show after show. The irony is that Upfront week is also a social week, with parties and other commitments keeping a loyal viewer away from the TV for too many precious hours. Still, I managed to get through much of my playlist, so here goes.
