TVLine Items: Dead Star Lives Forever, Flash Taps Young Dexter and More

Emily Kinney Forever

The Walking Dead alumna Emily Kinney is getting resurrected — on Forever.

The actress will guest-star on the ABC drama as a woman who “develops an unhealthy obsession with a murder victim,” executive producer Matt Miller tells TVLine.

In the same hour — Episode 16 — Hilarie Burton‘s (White Collar) dominatrix therapist Iona Payne returns when it’s revealed that a female vic was involved in roleplaying.

“It was an NYU student who was taking a class in unusual psychology, and what happens is we go to talk to her teacher [and] realize the teacher was Hilarie Burton,” the EP previews. “So Henry is constantly trying to insinuate her back into the case and ask her expert opinion.”

    I love Forever!

    Allison scagliotti was practically the only problem with Warehouse 13 (cheap cg can be forgiven on a tv show budget) The new show sounds like it could be interesting but she will ruin it.
