    Sherawat a leading lady??? Bwahahahah…. She’s a B-Grade actress at best. It will be seen clearly in the episode.

    Lee Pace ♥

  3. Rita price says:

    Maybe I missed it but was Brody really killed.

  4. Lee says:

    Bollywood star? ROFL

    She is a Bollywood D lister. The Kim K of BW is definitely not a star.

  5. sarah says:

    Yeah and supposedly McGarrett gets injured badly and makes a heart breaking choice! We all know without Steve there is no H50 so I wonder what happens!

    • wrstlgirl says:

      LOL, been reading TV guide mega buzz have you? I saw the same report. Knowing how these reports like to be dramatic I’m guessing it’s not all that big :-)

  6. wrstlgirl says:

    Well A&E needs to promote Those Who Kill a lot more. I just watched and it was really quite good. I only found it because I saw an ad during Bates.

  7. Ella says:

    Always good to see international talent in the US. Though can Steve and Catherine break up aready?! I’m so bored of them, there is zero chemistry there.

  8. diya says:

    “Bollywood Star” who? her?….not even in her dreams….One can barely call her an actor. She’s a joke around here in India
