Crucifictorious is alive and well, my friends! And they’re coming to jam at … The Luncheonette?

'The Originals' First Look: Rebekah and Genevieve nurse patients back to health in 1919 -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Last we left New Orleans, there was a new team of witches in town, and they were out for blood. Then again, that could have to do with the fact that the witches weren’t very new at all, but rather very, very old.

'Castle' sneak peek at wedding dress episode -- EXCLUSIVE

Monday’s new episode of Castle is the one many fans have been waiting for — it’s the episode where we get a first look at Beckett in a wedding dress!

What the pictures from the episode won’t tell you is how we get there. And you’re not getting it out of me either!
