Some random bullet points about what I learned:
-This is Pam's New Mom. Um. I don't want to alarm you or destroy your ability to pretend this is the same lady from season 2 or anything, but...she looks like Jan. Don't you think she looks like Jan? It is disturbing me. A lot. Here is another, more flattering picture which confirms it.
-Amy Madigan’s shrink advises Owen against making any further sexy time with Cristina until he can get the voices in his head to shut the hell up. Relax, they’re not breaking up. Just taking things slooooow.
OMFG, this is why I love Cristina and Owen. I don't even care if his resolve only lasts for two episodes. They gave me a whole strike-shortened year of celibate Cristina! Then a whole year of super-slow-motion relationship! Then a culminating sex scene that didn't feel squicky and horrible to watch!
AND NOW THEY ARE BACKING OFF EVEN MORE. If it was not for the pig-stabbing thing, this ship would actually be like...perfection? Because ever since they atoned for that (a miracle in and of itself), these two have done no wrong and in fact have fulfilled several improbably rare scenarios on exactly the level I wanted.
-“Derek hasn’t been a fully explored character separate from Meredith,” Vernoff admits. “The fact that by necessity Ellen is going to need a little less screen time gives us more encouragement to explore Derek as a doctor.”
LMAO, when was the last time you saw a MALE character being defined solely by his relationship? Awesome. I actually hadn't noticed, but awesome on principle that they're admitting now that circumstances force them to do something about it. (relatedly: anything that allows me to enjoy Derek without Meredith being attached = best thing ever) Now let's get the same thing going for his ex-wife so she doesn't have to wangst about whether or not to sleep with a Really
-Question: Will Brennan rethink wanting Booth’s baby on Bones?
Ausiello: Booth’s baby? No. A baby? And how. “She does not want to have his baby if he doesn’t want her to have the baby,” says series creator Hart Hanson, adding that “it was really significant that once he had doubts, she wasn’t like, ‘Oh, I’ll have the baby with someone else.’ If Brennan wants to have a baby, she wants to have Booth’s baby. Her interest in having a child declines to zero when she considers having anyone else’s baby.”
That right there is the shippiest spoiler I have seen in...ever. This is like, the level of giddy tiding-you-over-ness that we used to get for Grissom and Sara. Which half the time didn't pan out, so to those breadcrumbs, you CLUNG. Somehow I bet there's a lot more positive hope here.
-During November sweeps, House, Cuddy, and Wilson will attend a medical conference together.
AUTOMATIC WIN. JUST AUTOMATIC. On an unrelated note, I am still ignoring all of the Chase/Cameron spoilers because I can't decide if I like them or not.
-“With the reality of what the business is, we would love it to come back another year after this, but we don’t know,” concedes Numb3rs co-creator Cheryl Heuton.
I honestly think I could deal with that. I mean, not without PITCHING A SCREAMING HISSY FIT OF WOE AND HELPLESS RAGE on account of how it's my second-favorite show ATM, but...it would put a pretty big dent in my love of crime drama. Which would help me, overall.
-In other news, Peter MacNicol’s Larry will disappear for a chunk of the season to gain a new perspective on things.
Wait, what, again? How many times does this need to happen?

Hah! That was pretty anti-climatic. I had no idea I'd end up being Cinderella, although in retrospect, that makes ever so much sense, what with the animals and the time spent cleaning and all. I probably should even have bolded the Prince Charming question, because while I'm not exactly waiting with impatience and woe, I totally would not be opposed to him coming along, either.
