"Merlin" finally returns to the Syfy lineup Friday with the first of the final five episodes of the entire series. "With All My Heart" picks up where we left off--if you can remember where that is. Syfy pulled the show from the air in February just as things were heating up in Camelot. As " The Hollow Queen " aired, Morgana (Katie McGrath) had cast a spell making Gwen (Angel Coulby) her evil agent in Camelot, where the queen plotted to kill her husband, King Arthur (Bradley James)

Like the entire fourth season, the latest episode "Justified" was smart, funny and nerve-wracking. It was also kind of sweet thanks to the return of Natalie Zea. She hasn't been a regular on the show--she's working on Fox's "The Following"--but the networks and productions worked things out so she could reprise her role as Winona Hawkins, ex-wife of Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant). "The fact that I'm able to do both of these [shows] has been just beyond cool," she told me recently, "because it doesn't happen like...

Natalie Zea says she prefers doing comedies, but her characters in two high-profile dramas find themselves in peril this week. "Oh, God, I know. I gotta get away from this," she said Friday with a chuckle. "I've got to go do some sort of slapstick comedy!" The laughs will have to wait, at least on the small screen. In Fox's "The Following," she plays Claire Matthews, the former wife of serial killer and cult creator Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) and former lover of the man who put him away, FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon)

The latest episode of "Community" wasn't only fun for Danny Pudi because he got to dress as his character Abed dressing as Inspector Spacetime, but because he got to act opposite British funnyman Matt Lucas. The "Little Britain" and "Come Fly With Me" comic guest stars as Abed's email "pen-pal," Toby Davies, who agrees to meet Abed at InspecTiCon, the annual Inspector Spacetime Convention, that Abed and Troy (Donald Glover) attend each year. The rest of the Greendale gang reluctantly agrees to attend the convention, but Toby...

"Merlin" stars Katie McGrath and Angel Coulby haven't had a lot of screen time together since Season 2 of the international hit, but that changes in the next episode. "The Dark Tower," premiering at 9 p.m. CT Feb. 8 on Syfy, gave the actresses a chance to act opposite each other again. In the episode, Morgana (McGrath) kidnaps her one-time servant, now Queen Guinivere (Coulby), in order to draw King Arthur (Bradley James) into a reckless rescue attempt. Morgana covets the throne of Camelot, and will do whatever it takes to get it. "We've always...
