Browse our gallery of 7 new pics from the season 5 premiere! The whole gang is reunited on the Oct. 8 season premiere of 90210, but the circumstances could definitely be better. A brand-new batch of pics from the episode, ominously titled "Til Death Do Us Part," show all Dixon's (Tristan Wilds) friends — minus Naomi's (AnnaLynne McCord) new husband Max — surrounding him in his hospital room, following his head-on collision with a tractor trailer on last season's finale. So what else do these new pics reveal? We now have our first official look at Mama Wilson (Lori Loughlin), who joins Annie (Shenae Grimes) at the hospital — and I'll just assume Papa Wilson (Rob Estes) sent flowers, or whatever. We're also given our last look at Austin (Justin Deeley), who's sadly ending his run on the show this season, as well as Taylor (Wes Brown), the guy who sleeping with Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes).

Mama Wilson is heading home from Paris -- that's right, Lori Loughlin is returning to The CW's "90210" to reprise her role as Debbie Wilson, the mother of Tristan Wilds' Dixon and Shenae Grimes' Annie, on the soap's Season 5 premiere.
According to TVLine, Debbie will be by Dixon's side when the show returns. Dixon got into a horrific car accident in the final moments of the Season 4 finale, so Mama W. will either be back to help her son recuperate or to help plan his funeral. (Since Wilds is coming back for Season 5, we're betting -- and hoping -- for the former.)
Loughlin left the show after Season 3 as the show focused more on the storylines of the kids on the show. Rob Estes, who played Loughlin's onscreen ex-husband for the show's first two seasons, will not be returning. »
The 90210 Season 5 premiere will feature one farewell and one return.
As previously reported, Justin Deeley (as Austin) will exit the series on the October 8 opener, while TV Line now confirms that Lori Loughlin will come back for an episode as Annie and Dixon's mother, Debbie.
The actress departed prior to 90210 Season 3 when the show shifted its focus entirely to its teenage leads, raising the question of why her character is returning now.
Will it be related to Dixon's Season 4 finale car accident? And could it possibly be for her son's funeral?!? Rob Estes, it should be noted, will Not stop by as Debbie's ex-husband and Dixon's adopted father.
Take your best guess now as to why Loughlin will make this appearance and also take note: Carly Rae Jepsen will be performing on the same episode. »

When — or if — Dixon wakes up in the Season 5 premiere of 90210, his mom will be by his hospital bed.

Loughlin left the show in 2011 when its focus narrowed to include only the teen storylines. Her on-screen ex-husband, played by Rob Estes, departed after the show split them up in 2010; Loughlin’s Debbie had been flirting with teacher Ryan Matthews before the actress signed off at the end of the third season. »

A week before he died in 2006, author Mickey Spillane turned to his wife and said, “When I’m gone, there’s going to be a treasure hunt around here. Take everything you find and give it to Max – he’ll know what to do.”
“Max” is Max Allan Collins. He was, for a number of reasons, an ideal choice to be the keeper of the Spillane flame.
A fan of Spillane’s since he’d been a kid, Collins had met the mystery writer at a convention in the early 1980s. The connection developed into both friendship and regular collaboration. But Collins was no junior partner in the duo.
Born in Muscatine, Iowa in 1948, he’s been writing mysteries since he was a kid, eventually studying in the Iowa Writers’ Workshop at the University of Iowa, one of the most renowned writing programs in the country.

Coming off an episode in which the Psych team showed some "True Grits," this week's season six finale will take Shawn, Gus and company to "Santabarbaratown."
To close out the latest run - new installments returns in October - look for Shawn, Gus and Henry to cause some trouble when they reopen a 20-year old investigation because a woman's corpse surfaces amidst a pile of garbage.
Psych Season 6 Finale Promo: "Santabarbara Town" »

"Psych" is wrapping up its sixth season with "SantaBarbaratown," the show's send-up of film noir, specifically the 1974 Jack Nicholson-Faye Dunaway mystery "Chinatown." We've seen it and it's awesome, so here are five teases to tide you over until Wednesday night.
The guest stars are excellent - Rob Estes is a suspect, Lolita Davidovich is a spurned waitress and Amanda Schull is outstanding as a blonde femme fatale who seems to be hiding an awful lot.Keep your eye out for the "Chinatown" references - Robert Towne was the screenwriter, Ida Sessions was a character, oh, and ... there's a pretty key plot point that is creatively used.We find out what Shawn carries around in his wallet - it's a picture of a blonde woman, but it's not Jules.Speaking of Jules, she and Shawn take (for Shawn) a giant leap forward in their relationship this episode. Squeal!And »
"Psych" Season 6 is rapidly drawing to a close - only two more new episodes and then it won't return until the fall. But the Season 6 finale promises to be a good one - it better be, since it doesn't appear to have any Yin-Yang tie-ins, which the show has done for the past three seasons.
The episode is titled "SantaBarbaratown," a send-up of the 1974 Jack Nicholson-Faye Dunaway thriller "Chinatown" (which is definitely worth a viewing if you've never seen it, just by the way). The plot involves a body being found 20 years after its disappearance and Shawn, Gus and Henry re-opening the case. Based on the above picture, we'd guess the body is uncovered during some kind of construction project.
Guest stars include Rob Estes ("Silk Stalkings," "Melrose Place"), Lolita Davidovich ("The L Word," "Gods and Monsters") and Max Gail ("Barney Miller"). Should be fun. "Psych" airs Wednesday nights at 10 p. »
The former Melrose Place and 90210 star will appear on the September premiere as Tk's agent, someone willing to do anything at all for his client.
Handler (Sex and the City, Californicaion), meanwhile, will portray Marshall Pittman, a media mogul who owns the New York Hawks and who will guest star on three upcoming episodes.
