'Law & Order: SVU' First Look: Lewis is gone, but Benson's nightmare isn't over yet -- VIDEO

Law & Order: SVU‘s Detective Olivia Benson is no stranger to trauma, but this season, her experience reached another level thanks to William Lewis (guest star Pablo Schreiber). Lewis, a psychotic killer and rapist, set his sights on Benson a while back, even kidnapping her at one point. And despite his arrest earlier this season, Lewis was back in the most recent episode, when he went after a young girl to lure Benson back in.

His plan worked, but what Benson didn’t expect was that his plan would end with a good old-fashioned round of Russian Roulette. Lewis forced a tied up Benson to play along with him, putting a gun to her own head and pulling the trigger twice, before the last bullet ended up being directed toward him. And in a shocking moment, he put his head next to Benson’s just as he pulled the trigger, killing himself and ending her nightmare once and for all.

Or so we thought. In a first look from this week’s episode, it seems Benson’s nightmare isn’t quite over. There are questions surrounding Lewis’ suicide, and the simple solution seems to be for Benson to claim she killed him in self defense.

NBC supports David Gregory for 'Meet the Press'

NBC’s news chief says she supports embattled Meet the Press moderator David Gregory “now and into the future” as the Sunday morning public affairs program tries to turn around sinking ratings.

NBC News President Deborah Turness, in a memo to Meet the Press staff members, said Gregory has been the victim of vindictive, personal, and untrue chatter.

“NBC News is proud to have David in the important anchor chair of Meet the Press,” Turness wrote. “He is passionate about politics, and is committed to getting answers for our viewers on the issues that matter to them the most.”

The network has been concerned by the reaction to a story published Sunday in The Washington Post that said that NBC commissioned a “psychological consultant” to interview Gregory’s wife and friends. The word “psychological” quickly became a sticking point; NBC says they worked with a brand consultant probing perceptions of Gregory’s strengths and weaknesses to develop a marketing campaign.

'Rosemary's Baby' trailer: Zoe Saldana is the 'chosen' one -- VIDEO

In the first trailer for the Rosemary’s Baby miniseries, Zoe Saldana’s Rosemary Woodhouse couldn’t be happier to become a mom — until she’s not so sure just what is growing inside her.

The four-hour miniseries — airing in two installments on Sunday, May 11, and Thursday, May 15, at 9 p.m. on NBC — is based on Ira Levin’s 1967 novel, which also spawned (sorry) an Oscar-winning Roman Polanski film in 1968. Alongside Saldana, the new incarnation stars Patrick J. Adams (Suits) as her husband who makes a literal deal with the devil.

'Parenthood': Matt Lauria previews Ryan's emotional return (and a Luke Cafferty appearance?)

If the previews for this week’s penultimate episode of Parenthood tell us anything, it’s that we’re going to need even more tissues than normal. And a key factor in that tear-jerking equation is, of course, the return of fan favorite (and love of Amber’s life) Ryan.

Last we saw Ryan, he was re-enlisting after having come to the realization that he is and always will be a soldier. And as an effect of that decision, he and Amber broke off their engagement. But now, after weeks of Amber drowning her sorrows in ice cream and pot, Ryan is back. Even worse? He’s injured.

We don’t know much other than that, but we caught up with Matt Lauria to talk about Ryan’s reunion with Amber, his potential future on the show, and the theoretical appearance of his Friday Night Lights character Luke Cafferty (because why not?): READ FULL STORY
