Per TVLine, Elyse Levesque (pictured; Slumber Party Slaughter, "Sgu Stargate Universe") has been cast as the redheaded witch Genevieve and will first appear in Episode 1.13. The seductive and deceptive Genevieve returns to New Orleans with a mysterious agenda and some unfinished business with Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis).
Considering that a deep, dark secret was hinted at by the former lovebirds in last night's mid-season finale, we're assuming Genevieve is somehow involved in that, but only time will tell.
"The Originals" returns on January 14th with Episode 1.10, "The Casket Girls."

Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash Marvel’S The Avengers, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant

A suspicious object is shot down over the waters of the Pacific Northwest, causing strong turbulence and ominous clouds that turn violently into a massive storm. As the heavy rains and hurricane-force winds wreak havoc in the city of Seattle, Major Emma Peterson (Ona Grauer; "V," "Stargate Universe") is handed the task of identifying the threat and securing the city, while trying to keep her own kids safe.

We’ll have to wait and see if that fever gets contained or if we’ll be seeing some crossover drama in the remaining five episodes this season. That’s five including tonight’s, for which you can prepare by watching the “Shooting the Shtako” featurette discussion between showrunner Kevin Murphy and the newly-adventurous Stahma, Jaime Murray; the TV spot for the new episode; and the first three and a half minutes of the episode, which Syfy
Now I’m going to take a look at each episode, right back from the first. I aim to do one of these a week, so with the amount of episodes produced this should conclude in 2076 or thereabouts. I did give a lot of thought to starting with the original movie but decided that due to the recasts and the different production team I would just start with Sg-1. Maybe I’ll
Thursday's (May 23) Season 4 opener of ABC's "Rookie Blue," titled "Surprises," demonstrated that amply. For starters, there was the expected front-and-center story of Officers Andy McNally and Nick Collins (Missy Peregym, Peter Mooney).
Right off the bat, they were seen immersed six months later in the undercover operation they left everything and everyone behind for -- including their respective, fellow badge-wearing loves Sam Swarek and Gail Peck (Ben Bass, Charlotte Sullivan) -- at the end of Season 3.
That case would be closed in the first hour of Season 4, but not before a new bond between Andy and Nick made itself known ("It hasn't all been bad," he said as their job was winding down, met by her warm smile). And not before each of them took some blows, quite literally.

When asked about Richards, Bell said, "he’s so good. He’s so good, because we were looking for this character M-- I almost said his name. It’s not the one people are talking about."
IGN do note in the interview that the "M" sound Bell made could be more of a "hmmm" as in he wasn't sure whether he could say or not.

Did you know Joss Whedon is on Twitter now? Yep, @JossActual: that's really him! When I think about Joss Whedon, I think about how awesome it is to have a crazy-talented, unabashed feminist man writing complicated, empowered female characters. Like Buffy, of course. Like Black Widow. Like Echo. I also think about how he brutally murdered Tara Maclay and broke mine and Willow's hearts forever and neither of us are ever, ever going to be over it! Ever! But I've decided to let Joss make it up to me. His new ABC show about Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. now has an official trailer and official character photos, and after taking a look at these badass women, I think Joss can finally make good on that lesbian he owes us.
First, the trailer:
And now, the character posters. First, there's Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May.
Spinning out of last year's The Avengers, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been developed by Joss Whedon (who also directed the pilot), Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, and sees Clark Gregg back from the dead as Agent Phil Coulson, leading a cast that includes Ming-Na Wen (Stargate Universe) as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton (Killing Lincoln) as Agent Grant Ward, Iain De Caestecker (Coronation Street) as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge (The Thompsons) as Agent Gemma Simmons and Chloe Bennet (Nashville) as Skye.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is set to begin airing this fall.
Motive follows spirited female homicide detective, Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman), who matches wits with killers in a dangerous cat-and-mouse game. In an unconventional approach to crime story-telling, each episode begins by revealing not only the victim, but the killer as well. As the mystery unfolds – winding between revealing flashbacks and present time – viewers are drawn into the minds of the criminal and navigate the complicated maze of each case, solving the murder alongside Detective Angie Flynn and her team.
Due to launch in the Us on ABC later this month, Motive premiered on Canada’s CTV in February with 1.23 million viewers to become the number one Canadian series premiere of the 2012/13 broadcast year. James Newton, Channel Director, Universal Channel, said:
