Summer reaches its halfway point (at least on Camp Victory's calendar) during this freshman series' midseason finale. This episode is the conclusion of last week's two-parter, and the drama intensifies as parents' weekend continues. Not only do the campers face challenges with their parents, but Dr. Rand does, too. Yet the major turmoil comes from the revelation of an unexpected romance that leaves some stunned and others heartbroken. It's a cruel summer indeed... — Jennifer Sankowski

This belle always rings loud and clear. Sleuthing Southern belle Brenda Leigh Johnson makes some noise, springing into action to investigate the shooting deaths of three soldiers, who were gunned down outside a Los Angeles club after just returning home from Afghanistan. Potential national-security implications mark the case and trigger the arrival of one Major Edward Dorset (Gary Cole). A shock-and-awe battle is on when Brenda then finds herself in a seismic investigative clash with the military man. — Dean Maurer

You probably didn't need a weatherman to know which way the winds of love and intrigue would blow for Jonathan, and perhaps it's surprising that he made it to Week 3. In any event, he's gone now, as is whiny Gia, who can return to her boyfriend (if he still wants her). Meanwhile, Natalie reinforced reality-TV law No. 1: "She who goes topless succeeds." But she and everyone else should run for cover tonight, when there are five (count 'em) eliminations. In a (sort of) related note: The contestant lineup for Dancing with the Stars, which will return in this time slot Sept. 20, is announced during the show. — Paul Droesch

On the women's side, Caroline Wozniacki earned her first top seed in a Grand Slam event. — Dave Roeder
