Question: Last season we saw Scorpion’s Sly campaign to be alderman. What is he getting into this season? —Stephanie
Ausiello: To kick off Season 4 on Monday, Sept. 25, Ari Stidham tells us, “There’s a good amount of Megan O’Brien in the first two episodes” — as in Sly’s wife/Walter’s sister, who died midway through Season 2. “The character (played by Camille Gauty) doesn’t come back, but there’s a lot of stuff for Sly as far as Megan goes.”

Grey's Anatomy to Adopt Lighter Tone: 'It's Been Dreary for a Long Time' | TVLine

The clouds are about to part on Grey’s Anatomy. After enduring several seasons of Sturm und Drang, the docs of Grey Sloan Memorial are about to catch a much-needed break.

“It’s funnier, it’s sexier, it’s lighter,” co-star Giacomo Gianniotti tells TVLine of Season 14, which kicks off with a two-hour episode on Sept. 28. “We’re going to have fun this season.”

As Gianniotti notes, the ABC drama has “been dreary for a long time,” adding, “There’s just been a lot of separation and loss, so we want to show the characters having some fun. Also, a lot of the men are single now, so we’re going to explore what that dynamic is like.”

That’s not to say the Grim Reaper will be twiddling his thumbs during all 24 episodes. Grey’s Anatomy remains, after all, a hospital drama. “You’re still going to need the tissue box every Thursday,” Gianniotti promises, “because our guest stars are going to be coming in with new [medical] problems and crazy hospital scenarios.”

I think what’s important is just to show this as a relationship and not to focus fully on the fact that these are two gay women. We want to treat it and give it as much thought as any other relationship, right, but also be mindful that we are representing a community that needs more representation. We want to get it right, and we want to really think things through.

Grey's Vet Krista Vernoff Returns for Season 14 as Co-Showrunner | TVLine
By Michael Ausiello

One of Grey’s Anatomy‘s most celebrated behind-the-scenes MVPs is checking back in.

TVLine has confirmed that Krista Vernoff — who served as head writer and exec producer during the ABC medical drama’s first seven seasons, earning multiple Emmy nominations in the process — is returning for the series’ upcoming 14th season. Vernoff joins the showrunning team of Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers as part of a new overall deal with ABC Studios. Additionally, she penned the two-hour Season 14 premiere, “Break Down the House,” which is slated to air on Sept. 28 at 9/8c.

Vernoff, who first teased her return on social media this past spring (and has been sharing pics from the show’s recent location shoot in Seattle), fills the void left by longtime Grey’swriter/EP/co-showunner Stacy McKee, who is segueing to the new firefighter-themed spinoff.

Since exiting Grey’s in 2011, Vernoff served as a consulting producer on the final two seasons of sister series Private Practice before jumping to Showtime’s Shameless as a writer/EP.
Reign Series Finale: EP Breaks Down Mary's Last Scene, Reveals the Story Behind [Spoiler]'s Return and More
In many ways, The CW’s Reign ended exactly as it lived — full of bloody murder, bloody sex and more syphilitic visions than you could shake a bloody stick at. Let’s start with the murde…

“McCarthy also knew all along that Mary would reunite with Francis in the afterlife, so before Toby Regbo departedmidway through Season 3, she asked him to film the scenes you saw in the series finale.

“I asked him to do it before he left, not knowing when we were going to use it,” McCarthy reveals. “And he very graciously agreed to do it. … We’d invested so much in that relationship, and those two have such extraordinary chemistry. I felt like that was where the show began, with their unexpected love story, and I knew that’s how I wanted it to end.”

It seems like just yesterday that How to Get Away With Murder‘s Keating Five were burying their professor’s husband’s body — and Michaela was incoherent with panic the entire time. But, as Aja Naomi King proved to us in Thursday’s episode, Michaela has come a long way from that night in the woods, and we can’t get enough of her schemes to keep herself and her classmates out of prison. Whether she was defending Annalise to President Hargrove, or eviscerating Connor for revealing incriminating secrets to Oliver (“This is my life on the line, and I worked too hard to have it ruined because someone opened their fat mouth!”), Michaela reminded us who’s really in charge while Annalise is away.

WHY HE DESERVES A NOD: Yep, no way to sugarcoat this: Celeste’s abusive, controlling husband Perry was a real piece of s—t. But that just speaks to how masterful Skarsgard’s performance was. He channeled Perry’s frightening sadistic streak, and also his genuine remorse when he realized he’d gone too far. In a way, it was as brave a performance as his co-star Nicole Kidman’s — portraying the ugly truth of domestic violence without making excuses or tacking on a fake happy ending — and just as deserving of recognition.

@emme1013 Thanks the link is here.  

@counttotwenty and I were discussing this very blind item this morning.   I think it’s a very good guess it’s about Still Star Crossed. However, I’ve watched the show and I don’t think there is any way anyone could reasonably and objectively describe it as “an upcoming drama series that is allegedly so bad it’s actually unwatchable.”

I personally found it extremely watchable, and I know a lot of other hard-core TV viewers here on tumblr did as well. 

So, why would it be reported like that? Sounds like a plant by ABC to destroy the show before it even aired as retaliation against Rhimes for leaving. Bank on it.
