    Heck yes to more TVD flashbacks! Haven’t had a good one in a little bit now, could really use a flashback centric eppy!

  2. Bad Breaker says:

    Morena Baccarin is terrific in Homeland but each time she’s on I still see the evil queen of the visitors in “V”, especially when she cut her hair short.

  3. Saint Alicia says:

    Awesome news! Morena is great, and now she’s going to be on TGW as well as The Mentalist? An embarrassment of riches, I tell you…

  4. CJ says:

    Sebastian Stan is pretty hot stuff, but I don’t watch that show.

  5. Thari says:

    I so hope that Carter Baizen will be Emma’s babydaddy on OUAT! How fun would that be?!
