'Grey's Anatomy': Can Meredith and Maggie reconcile?

The familial relations at Grey Sloan are getting a little twisty on Grey’s Anatomy this season.

In case you’ve gotten a little lost since the show returned, the new head of cardio, Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary), is the daughter Ellis Grey (Kate Burton) gave up for adoption, unbeknownst to Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.), who happens to be the father. That makes Maggie the half-sister to Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and the half-sister-in-law to Derek (Patrick Dempsey). Sorted? Great, because Meredith has confirmed that Maggie is telling the truth, while Richard finally revealed to Maggie that he’s her father. Say it with me: Drama!

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.': Will Melinda May be forced to kill Coulson?

Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Tuesday’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Heroes fighting themselves is all the rage right now.

During Tuesday’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) met her match when she was forced to fight… herself. Here’s how it all went down: After Coulson (Clark Gregg) and May went undercover to recover a priceless painting with the mysterious alien language inscribed on the back, they ran into Talbot (Adrian Pasdar), who enlisted their help in deciphering the writing instead of arresting them on sight.

However, it wasn’t actually Talbot, but Bakshi (Simon Kassianides) wearing a high-tech mask. When May discovers the truth, she’s knocked out so Agent 33 (Maya Stojan) can impersonate her. Naturally, it isn’t long before Coulson deduces that this isn’t his longtime often-grumpy friend, which leads to an epic battle of May vs. May when the original escapes capture.

Despite their bonding session throughout the mission, Coulson is very insistent that May must kill him because he doesn’t want the alien serum to make him go crazy like it did with Garrett (Bill Paxton). Will she go through with it? EW caught up with the actress to get the scoop:

'Once Upon a Time' star Elizabeth Mitchell spills scoop on the Snow Queen

Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time.

The Snow Queen has arrived!

During Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time, a chill continued to hang over Storybrooke—but Elsa (Georgina Haig) wasn’t to blame when Maid Marian (Christine Laing) suddenly turned to ice. Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Charming (Josh Dallas) discovered that the real culprit worked at the local ice cream parlor, thanks to the help of cunning thief Will Scarlet (Michael Socha).

But Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Elsa found the source first, discovering the Snow Queen (Elizabeth Mitchell) in the middle of the woods, tinkering with some sort of mini ice castle. The Snow Queen admitted that she was framing Elsa to prove a point—every “normal” person would eventually look at her as a monster. Then SQ attempted to kill Hook to prove her point, but Emma and David arrived in time to save the day.

Surprisingly, SQ actually knows both Emma and Elsa from their pasts, though both of them are unaware of that fact. The Emma connection remains to be seen, but Elsa and SQ first crossed paths when Hans (Tyler Jacob Moore) set out to locate a magical urn that would capture Elsa. However, when he went to use it, SQ came spilling out. She promptly turned Hans into a popsicle and found a kinship with Elsa: She’s apparently Elsa’s aunt! We say “apparently” because, honestly, can she really be trusted? EW turned to Mitchell to find out.

Uncle Buck is coming back for a second serving on the small screen.

The 1989 John Hughes comedy starring John Candy is being developed again for TV, EW has confirmed, this time by ABC. Former MADtv writers Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley have created a new spin on the childish babysitter for Universal TV that will be executive produced by film producer Will Packer (No Good Deed).

CBS previously had their own TV remake in the 1990-1991 season starring Kevin Meaney in the title role. However, in that version Buck is named guardian to his nieces and nephew after his brother and sister-in-law die in a car accident. The show only lasted one season after both negative reviews and poor ratings.
