"Welcome to the O.C., bitch!"

It's hard to imagine it's been 10 years since The O.C. premiered and changed all our lives for the better. But would it have had the same effect without Seth Cohen? Or without band Death Cab for Cutie, for that matter?

Any more teasers about the Bones finale? I'm still hoping for a proposal after Monday's visit to the diamond shop! — Bridget
ADAM:
While last year's finale cast Brennan under suspicion, this season-ender may have some raising eyebrows about Booth. "There is a connection to Booth's past," executive producer Stephen Nathan says about the case in the finale. "We find out about some of his work at the FBI that we didn't know about. And it appears as if the victims have a close connection to Booth." So is Booth dirty or is this the work of the returning Pelant? Time will tell. As to the to the more bling-y part of your question: "The notion of marriage is again brought up in the finale," Nathan teases. "If you thought the pot was stirred [this week], the pot... overflows and messes up the kitchen floor in the season finale." Sounds like marriage to me!

Nashville's Sam Palladio: There's a Bumpy Road Ahead for Scarlett and Gunnar

Sam Palladio, Clare Bowen

Scarlett (Clare Bowen) and Gunnar (Sam Palladio) may have taken their relationship to the next level when they slept together on Nashville, but Scunnar fans might want to hold off on celebrating. The new couple's honeymoon period may be short-lived, according to Palladio.

That's not entirely surprising, given the fact that the event that immediately preceded their hookup was Gunnar learning that his brother had been murdered. But when Nashville returns from a month-long hiatus Wednesday (10/9c, ABC), there's another source of complications for Scarlett and Gunnar: trying to balance their new romantic relationship with their professional songwriting partnership. It's a classic story of co-ed songwriting duos, and the pair may be headed for a "Fleetwood Mac sort of thing," Palladio admits.

Premise: A slick hit about a troubled L.A. teen taken in by an idealistic lawyer and his family in affluent Orange County. The series filled the youth-soap hole left by the departed '90210,' but quickly proved itself far more gritty---and witty. In addition, early plots set up an appealing balance between the kids and grown-ups, who were portrayed as real people with real problems, instead of sounding boards for the unblemished Romeos and Juliets. From the directors of 'Go' and 'Charlie's Angels.'
