    • Let me guess, A Secret Circle fan still so very bitter that it was canceled over 90210?

  • I”m confused. Schmidt and CeCe were together at the end of the season? Why are we talking about them being broken up?

  • Jay Hernandez is “a man involved with Scott Speedman’s character’s estranged wife.” I hope that doesn’t mean some kind of affair because I don’t want to see that storyline on a show about a renegade nuclear sub.
