Since Mondays are just the worst, we here at Zap2it
have decided to give your week a much-needed wake-up call with 10 TV
teasers — just to remind you that when the work day is over, your DVR
waits to welcome you home.
For this week’s Monday Kickstart,
get scoop on a familiar face heading to “Emily Owens,” an awkward living situation on “Bones,” and some (potentially) good news for the “New Girl” fans hoping for some Nick/Jess action.
“Emily Owens, M.D.”: One of our fave “Supernatural” casualties, Samantha Ferris, will guest star in an upcoming episode as a lawyer representing Denver Memorial Hospital. Uh oh… malpractice suit, perhaps?
“90210”: The first half of the season might be all about Dixon’s recovery and Silver’s pre-surgery baby, but the second half will see Annie’s well-being suffer. “There’s an intense storyline for her and her health,” Grimes tells Zap2it. “I think it will lead to her re-bonding with another character.”
“Bones”: With Sweets out of his apartment thanks to his breakup with Daisy, he bunks with Booth and Brennan. Booth isn’t too happy, though, when he accidentally walks in on Sweets in his bathtub. In the same episode, Cam utters the line “More heinous than a nipple belt?” Oh “Bones,” never change.
“New Girl”: No, Jess and Nick are still not dating, but they share several meaningful looks in the Season 2 Halloween episode. Trust us, you’ll squeal. Plus, Schmidt buries the hatchet with Cece’s boring new boyfriend and Winston and Shelby finally confront the state of their relationship.
“Ben and Kate”: BJ tries to pretend she doesn’t care about Maddie, but the brash British beauty confirms her soft spot for the adorable little girl by sacrificing some expensive face cream in favor of QT with her BFF’s daughter.
“Homeland”: In next Sunday’s episode, “Gettysburg Address,” Carrie’s task force pays a visit to Bassel’s tailor shop, with terrible consequences. (Worse than a pair of pants being hemmed too short. Much worse.)
“The New Normal”: Clay is back in town to help Shania celebrate Halloween, but also because it makes him look like a good dad for the custody battle. Which, by the way, comes to a head during the Halloween festivities.
“Parenthood”: Ryan has become pals with Zeek, embarked on an (adorable) new romantic relationship with Amber, and now he’s becoming further entangled with the Bravermans as he gets a new job working for Joel’s contracting company. His first day on the job isn’t particularly awesome — look out for an unfortunate moment involving a very expensive window.
“The Client List”: Riley is expanding the business and hiring new, uh, massage therapists to join her endeavors. Her plan is to hire legit masseuses — and let them stumble across the more lucrative aspects of the business if they’re into that sort of thing, the way that she did. She takes an immediate liking to Jenna, a former stripper with some serious math skills. But can Jenna pass Riley’s carefully orchestrated test?
“Hart of Dixie”: In episode 12, we’ll meet the dashing, elegant Oliver, whose British accent makes all the ladies of Bluebell swoon. But Oliver isn’t who he appears to be — he’s stricken with the rare affliction called “Foreign Accent Syndrome.” Or so he says. Things get complicated when he takes a liking to a certain someone in town.
