Caterina Scorsone to return to 'Grey's Anatomy'

Season 10 of Grey’s Anatomy is quickly filling up with familiar faces. First, there was the news that Isaiah Washington will return as Dr. Burke, and now, EW has confirmed that Caterina Scorsone will once again set foot in Seattle.

Scorsone plays Amelia, Derek’s youngest sister and a fellow neurosurgeon, who many fans might recognize from the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off Private Practice. Scorsone appeared briefly on Grey’s but was a regular on Practice, where her character’s main story dealt with drug addiction. After Amelia’s fiance died of an overdose, she got clean in enough time to give birth to a child that had only half a brain.

By the end of Practice‘s run, Amelia was clean and happily involved with fellow doctor James. As for her return to Grey’s, we only know that she will first appear sometime in May and will then recur for the rest of season 10. TV Guide first broke the news of her casting.

'Pretty Little Liars' music: Singer-songwriter Chris Arena gives an inside look

For singer-songwriter Chris Arena, everything changed the night that he heard Alexi Murdoch’s “Orange Sky” on The O.C. In that moment, he decided to walk away from a life filled with touring and paying bars to perform so that he could get a chance to really be heard. Realizing what great television music moments could be, he decided to focus on cinematic music.

“[The O.C.] broke so many good acts,” Arena said. “It almost set the tone for, I feel like, the Grey’s Anatomys and the Dawson’s Creeks; those shows really paved the way for this whole movement of new artists focusing on cinematic music. I just picked a point and focused.”

More specifically, he picked ABC Family’s hit show Pretty Little Liars. “My brother [and] his girlfriend – they’re a little younger than I am – he and his girlfriend and all her friends, they’re obsessed with the show. They would talk about it and geek out on it. I just thought that was a good target. I wasn’t really familiar with the show that much, and I started watching it, and I kind of secretly developed a really strong liking for the show, and I thought it was interesting. It worked out really nicely because they needed a lot of music that dealt with heartbreak and singer-songwriter acoustics. It was a nice match.”

So with that idea in mind, Arena started writing. “I started to write songs based on some of the scenes I’d been watching, and to put it in a polite way, I kind of harassed this one editor at Pretty Little Liars and sent him maybe 10 or 15 fully produced songs,” Arena said. “The first eight or nine didn’t get a response, and then he finally picked up on one, and he said, ‘We’re gonna try it out.’ And they used a 17-second clip of a song called “Babyfish.” They had a lot of people that got on board with the music, and they invited me to the editing bay, and one thing led to another. It worked out pretty well, actually. It was a very organic, natural process in that sense.”

Now, Arena has had six songs featured on Pretty Little Liars, as well as another on the now-canceled spinoff Ravenswood. So how does the process work? Well for starters, Arena is given months to brainstorm, write, and produce his music. For example, he was brought to the studio back in August to watch the Caleb and Hanna breakup scene, which would later air in the show’s Jan. 7 winter premiere. READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: 'Orphan Black' creators promise new bad guys and new clones

We already made the big reveal last week that about a new clone named Jennifer Fitzsimmons being introduced on season 2 of Orphan Black, but the creators of the show — Graeme Manson and John Fawcett — may not be stopping there. The duo called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105), and when asked whether there may be even more clones introduced in season 2, they indicated that there indeed could be hope for additional sightings. “If one were going to go fishing for a new clone in our pond,” says Manson, “you might have a chance of catching another.” READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' star Jensen Ackles on forgiveness, the internal effects of the Mark of Cain: 'Dean's putting on blinders and taking steroids'

Last we saw of the handsome Winchester brothers, things were … complicated. Let’s just say that Supernatural‘s ninth season is full of battles: Sam’s inner battle, Dean’s inner battle, the brothers’ battle with each other, the battle in hell, and the brewing battle in heaven, to name a few. So as we head into the end of the season, what can we expect from our favorite hunters, their angelic sidekick, and a blood-addicted demon?

For starters, Tuesday night’s episode focuses around the search for The First Blade, aka the weapon that pairs with the Mark of Cain to kill Abaddon. But do we want Dean to find the blade considering we’re yet to see the consequences we know come with the Mark of Cain? We’re not so sure, which is why we caught up with Jensen Ackles to talk about the end of the season, Dean’s dilemma, and all things pertaining to that pesky (but kind of badass) Mark of Cain:

'Bates Motel': Carlton Cuse talks the mother of a twist revealed in latest episode -- EXCLUSIVE

[SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THE LATEST BATES MOTEL!!!!]

Tonight’s Bates Motel had a whopper of a twist in the final moments: Dylan’s father is…his mother’s brother! Yep, according to Norma (Vera Farmiga), her bro Caleb (Kenny Johnson) is Dylan’s dad. This will likely not end well so we talked to Motel EP Carlton Cuse about this major development.

EW: Tonight’s big reveal was that Caleb is the father of Dylan. Did you all plan that from the start of the series?
CARLTON CUSE: Like most good creative ideas they evolve and they grow richer over time. Back when I first discussed the show with A&E I mentioned with them that I would love to add a brother character number one because I thought it would be great to have a window of normalcy to look out at Norma and Norman through the perspective of this other guy. Also, it just felt like this dynamic of this other brother kind of creating triangulation in the family dynamic would be super great. Kerry Ehrin and I put flesh and bone on the Dylan character and I think as we started writing him and developing him and actually watching him and seeing how hurt and damaged he was being this sort of third wheel in this family, it felt like a natural progression to try and explain that and deepen our understanding of how that happened. Then, honestly, it was Vera who sent us the idea and thought What if we do this. Kerry and Vera and I all talked about it. It just was one of those things that “Oh this completely makes sense.” It was all kind of sitting on the table and then it all kind of fell into place.

So where will this storyline go?
I think it has incredibly powerful consequences for Dylan. It’s just such a horrible revelation for his self-worth. It really sort of spins him into a dark place in concert with the fact that he’s unwittingly found himself right in the middle of this crazy drug family. I think those two things spiral on top of each other. That’s what we’re following for the rest of the season: the downward spiral of Dylan. I’ve talked before about how the thematic of this season is, Who am I? Now that Dylan gets this really horrible answer to this question, now he’s dealing with the consequences of it. It’s really an opportunity for Max Thieriot to shine. It goes to some pretty twisty places over the course of the season. The event kind of catalyzes his event for the rest of the season.

Will we meet Norma’s parents?
We’ve had conversations about other family members but this is kind of as far as its goes. You can’t take too many Bates relatives at one time.

Kenny Johnson is sorta perfect because he looks like Max.
I think he looks remarkably like him. If you took Max Thieriot and just led a hard and dissolute life for 20 years, he would look just like Kenny Johnson. It was sort of the brilliance of April Webster, our fantastic casting director, who found Kenny. I knew Kenny because he was on The Shield and The Shield was done by Shawn Ryan. I gave Shawn Ryan his first job on Nash Bridges and Shawn and I are friends. Shawn had extolled how amazing Kenny was and how fantastic he was an actor. We just jumped at the opportunity for him to join our show.

We’re also meeting Michael Vartan’s character. He seems so nice. Is that even possible on Bates Motel?
Well, that’s really the question: Is Norma capable of having a relationship with a nice, normal person? I think this is a problem for a lot of people in life in general. There’s definitely a lot of people who kind of just don’t choose well when it comes to relationships because they’re sort of drawn to qualities that don’t tend to go with people who turn out to be nice guys or gals. I think Norma in some way is being handed the life she wants on a silver plate and will it work out.

This was probably the most shocking episode so far. Are there more twists to come?
Yeah, there are some other surprises coming up this season. I think that’s kind of the fun of the show. This is not like a small nuanced cable drama where one thing happens. The story telling is intentionally pretty full-throttle. There’s a bunch of other stuff that happens.
