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.
This week, our Monday Kickstart includes scoop on who won’t be back for more “Once,” an “Awkward” love interest, and a “Vampire Diaries” blonde-on-blonde battle.
“The Finder”: Expect to see a power struggle between Leo and 50 Cent’s character, record mogul Big Glade. Leo’s more concerned with Athena, Glade’s lawyer, and he’ll be tempted to return to his life as a big shot businessman when she makes moves to lure him back to the “real world.” Elsewhere, we’ll see a young version of Walter in a bizarro dream sequence.
“Awkward”: Though Jenna and Jake begin the season in a good place, the love triangle is still alive and well. When Matty tries to move on with a new love interest, Courtney, Jenna is pretty rattled… particularly after the two happy couples have an awkward dinner encounter. When Jenna gets distracted, Jake gets suspicious.
“Touch”: We’ll revisit the events of the pilot when the lottery winner, Randall, returns. Topical, no? Expect to learn the tragic details of his 9/11 encounter with Martin’s wife, Sarah, in addition to why he chose the numbers he did when he bought that winning lottery ticket. Meanwhile, Martin will learn surprising details about the last summer of his wife’s life from a bike messenger who Sarah tutored in the summer of 2001.
“The Vampire Diaries”: Given Rebekah’s knowledge of the 1920s, it’s only natural that she help with planning the next decade dance… but Caroline might not be too pleased about that. “My favorite scene is between Caroline and Rebekah, when Rebekah decides that she wants to be part of the dance,” Candice Accola tells us. “There’s a really fun scene between them. I really like their cadence of dialogue. They don’t like each other at all, but even though they can’t stand each other, there’s still an underlying current of mutual respect, which gives them great moments.”
“Once Upon a Time”: Barbara Hershey just appeared as the evil-er mother of the Evil Queen, and even though the story was left open-ended, fans should not expect to see her again this season. Hershey tells us she is, however, hoping to return at some point in Season 2.
“New Girl”: We’re a little confused about this one ourselves, but here goes. Lamorne Morris tells us that we’re going to see a whole new side of Winston in an upcoming episode. “Winston gets possessed by a gay, old, negro ghost. An old-timey negro ghost,” he says. “Okay, possessed is a metaphor, but when you see my performance, you’ll say, ‘That looks like a gay old negro ghost.'”
“The Killing”: The dwindling relationship between Holder and Linden will be one to watch unfold next week and in the future, as the premiere ended with the two on unspeakable terms. Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos tell us that one of the most intriguing aspects of this season is their challenged matchup — and considering Holder’s devious deeds, the truth might not necessarily set him free.
“Bones”: Someone may be dying in the Season 7 finale, when the big bad serial killer returns. “He’s really going to make an impact somehow,” explains David Boreanaz. “I do know that it’ll be pretty dangerous, and it’ll be detrimental to both [Booth and Brennan], and someone may not survive.” Emily Deschanel adds, “It changes things for Brennan, Booth and their child in a way that they’ll probably never be the same.” Expect some anxiety this summer — the episode ends with a cliffhanger.
“Missing”: Tuesday’s episode of “Missing” will change everything. “I can tell you that there is a major, major plot twist in episode four that will make the viewers gasp and have their world turned upside down — it’s about Becca and her family,” executive producer Gregory Poireir tells us.
“Magic City”: Starz is famous for its free hand with nudity, so naturally one should expect some gratuitous nudity in the network’s newest show, the 50’s-era tale of a Miami hotelier who gets mixed up with the mob. But will dedicated John Winchester fans be rewarded with a money shot of “Magic City” star Jeffrey Dean Morgan? Alas, no — in the April 6 debut, the nudity is confined to topless gals and one dead guy. Hot.
