'Grey's Anatomy': First pic of Isaiah Washington on set!

Last night’s Grey’s Anatomy was all about Cristina’s future, and more specifically, her future (or lack thereof) with Owen Hunt. Could they end up married with kids? Could they forever find themselves stuck in an unhappy back-and-forth that results in Owen turning into a drunk? I really hope not.

Regardless, Cristina’s time on the show is winding down, and fans have been very vocal about the return of Isaiah Washington’s Dr. Preston Burke, whether they like the news or not. And now, Ellen Pompeo has posted the first picture of Washington back on the set where he once stole Cristina’s heart while simultaneously repairing the hearts of many others. READ FULL STORY

'Good Wife,' 'Grey's Anatomy' exits: Dear TV, it's not you, it's them

It feels like every day brings news of another major character leaving one of our beloved shows. The recent influx started with Sandra Oh announcing that after 10 seasons, she was ready to say goodbye to Grey’s Anatomy. From there, we’ve had Paul Guilfoyle leaving CSI, Dan Bucatinsky leaving Scandal, Daniel Sharman leaving Teen Wolf, Claire Holt leaving The Originals, Josh Charles leaving The Good Wife, and really recently, even more Grey’s exits, to name a few.

But if television is at its best right now, with actors like Kevin Spacey and Matthew McConaughey joining the ranks of the small screen, then what is up with all the farewells? Was it something TV said?

I highly doubt it, but there’s a little something I’d like to say to TV. READ FULL STORY

Throwback Thursday: What's your favorite TV or movie proposal? -- VIDEO

Today is a very busy day. For starters, it’s Throwback Thursday. But it’s also the first day of spring and, wait for it, National Proposal Day! So, it only seemed fitting that I kill two birds with one stone — I refuse to celebrate spring until it’s warm outside — and throw it on back to my favorite movie/TV proposal of all time.

If asked, most women can tell you at least a little something about their dream proposal. Maybe there’s a path of rose petals involved, or perhaps they’re a fan of the sporting event jumbotron. Then there’s the secret photographers, and the flashmobs, and the rings being hidden in desserts. But for me, I can trace my perfect proposal back to 2007, when the movie Stepmom made me cry like a baby.

Before the tears started, there was a great proposal scene between Ed Harris and Julia Roberts. In it, Harris woke Roberts up with a kiss, and as they both sat in bed in their pajamas, he gave her a spool of thread. After tying it around her finger during a speech about marriage being a tough commitment, he put a ring on the other end of the thread and slid it down onto her finger.

Dr. Burke returns to 'Grey's Anatomy': What will happen?

Isaiah Washington may have left Grey’s Anatomy on a bad note, but that’s not stopping fans of the show from celebrating his just-announced return as Dr. Burke.

In season 3, Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) and Burke were engaged. They were working together. They were in love. Then Burke left Yang at the altar, and that was the last we saw of him. Now that Oh is leaving the show, creator Shonda Rhimes said she felt his return was an integral part of providing closure to Cristina Yang. But what will happen between the two? We’ve got some ideas: READ FULL STORY

Second time around: TV stars who reprised iconic roles

You can’t go home again — unless you’re a television star.

ABC announced a big shocker Thursday: Isaiah Washington, who played heart surgeon Dr. Preston Burke on three seasons of Grey’s Anatomy, will soon reprise the role he left in 2007. Washington exited the show after his contract was not renewed, following accusations that he had used a homophobic slur in reference to his then co-star T.R. Knight. He is set to return in a May episode, which will coincide with Sandra Oh’s departure from the medical drama. (Washington played Oh’s love interest on the show; their story ended with Burke leaving Oh’s Cristina Yang on their wedding day.)

Washington is just one of several actors who have reprised a well-known role. Here’s a roundup of some of TV’s most notable returns:

'Grey's Anatomy': What season 10 could learn from season 2

Grey’s Anatomy is currently in its 10th season. That means, as of right now, it’s been on for one more season than it had number of episodes in season 1. And I’m not here to say that’s wrong. I still enjoy the show, and I’ll honestly never stop watching, but I do want to talk about what season 10 could learn from what I believe is the show’s best season to date: season 2.

Let me make it clear that I’m not saying seasons 3 through 9 were bad. In my opinion, there have only been a few lulls in the show’s history, and most of them didn’t last a full season. Sure, some seasons were better than others, but that’s why I’m writing this now, because I feel like season 10 is losing me a little bit.

Ten years of story is a lot, especially on a show like Grey’s. We’ve seen countless medical mysteries, workplace dramas, and catastrophic events. Bomb scare? Done. Male “pregnancy”? Done. Plane crash? Check. Hospital shooting? Done that too. Everyone sleeping with everyone? Check and double check. So what’s left for season 10?

Although I’m currently enjoying the Jackson-April story, other than that, I’m struggling a bit. The interns I once liked are rubbing me the wrong way, and I do not enjoy watching Bailey spiral in any way shape or form (but hopefully that’s over). And having Meredith fight with Cristina for half the season and now Derek? It’s a little exhausting. And the more I watch, the more I miss certain things that were once central to the Grey’s experience and now seem to have fallen into the background (or aren’t being used the same way).

Here’s my wish list for 10 things I’d love to return/be used more often: READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Matchmaker: Matthew Taylor and Quinn Perkins

Some of our favorite TV characters are often unlucky in love. They just can’t seem to find The One — but what if The One is on another show altogether?

Right about now, the fate of Grey’s Anatomy‘s Matthew Taylor is TBD. The mid-season finale ended with Jackson interrupting Matthew’s wedding to April by pronouncing his love for Matthew’s bride. But which hunk will April choose? Well, while we wait, I started thinking about what I wanted to see happen. In my perfect world, I think April belongs with Jackson. There’s something to be said for being that comfortable with someone. So then what happens to Matthew? Don’t worry. I’ve got big plans for him. READ FULL STORY

Best of 2013: The year's top shipper moments

SPOILER ALERT! Shippers live for the payoff, and in 2013, fans of NCIS, Suits, Castle, Parks and Recreation, and Bones got the ultimate with a goodbye kiss, angry first-time sex in the file room, a proposal, a surprise wedding, and a long-awaited wedding, respectively. (Sorry, Downton Abbey fans, that your Mary and Matthew bliss was so short-lived. Ditto, Sons of Anarchy fans, who watched Tara and Jax finally reconnect, which only made her exit all the more painful.)

For other viewers though, the yearning continues. Here are 10 moments from 2013 that will keep shippers hanging on and tuning in. READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy's' Meredith Grey vs. 'Scandal's' Olivia Pope: Battle of Shondaland's worst parents -- POLL

Welcome to Shondaland, the world of strong female characters, complicated love stories, and absolutely horrible parents. It’s a world in which being the leading lady means a few things are certain: You will have an epic love, you will be excellent at your job, and you will have atrocious parents who will cause you tremendous amounts of pain. Take Grey’s Anatomy‘s Meredith Grey and Scandal‘s Olivia Pope, for example. Mer has McDreamy; Olivia has Fitz. Mer is a respected surgeon; Olivia is the best “fixer” around. Mer’s parents are/were awful; Olivia’s parents are/were awful.

And after Thursday night’s Scandal, in which we learned the truth about Olivia’s mom, I couldn’t help but ask myself: Whose parents are worse? Meredith’s or Olivia’s? Let’s break it down.

Throwback Thursday: Remember when Meredith was Cristina's person on 'Grey's Anatomy'? -- VIDEO

I don’t know about you, but 10 seasons into Grey’s Anatomy, there’s one couple I care about more than just about anyone else: Cristina and Meredith. (Yes, even more than Meredith and Derek.) And with this being Sandra Oh’s last season, I was looking forward to the duo going on morning jogs, making some slutty mistakes — Cristina, not Mer — and cuddling up in a bed full of babies and one very irritated (and very sexy) McDreamy. That’s just how life was meant to be. But instead, I’ve now had weeks worth of arguments, and I can’t take it anymore.

So before I watch tonight’s episode and get angry all over again, I’m taking a moment to relive one of favorite friendships in TV history: The Twisted Sisters. Ironically, these two were much nicer to each other when they were much angrier at, well, the rest of the world. They were competitive. They were dark and twisty. And they were besties.

I miss the days when they were sleeping with attendings, dancing on tables, and making heartfelt declarations at Joe’s bar:
