November 12, 2009 09:23:11 GMT

Just when she returns on this week's episode of "Grey's Anatomy", a report emerges that Katherine Heigl's Izzie Stevens will be out of the screen again.

Heigl has once taken a hiatus from the show last month to complete her feature movie project "Life as We Know It". While it was for professional reason, this second leave is for her family's sake. She reportedly wants more quality time with her newly-adopted daughter Naleigh. This means Izzie will not appear in several episodes most likely those that air in early 2010.

November 11, 2009 09:10:07 GMT

"Sons of Anarchy" next week will all be about accumulating plan to get a retaliation, with Jax suggesting to Clay "We kill them all". In this week's episode called "Balm", the whole truth came out when Gemma tells SAMCRO what really happened to her. In continuation of that, Opie seeks both revenge and reconciliation, while Chibs makes a secret deal with Agent Stahl to protect his wife and daughter.

In the season 2 premiere Gemma was the victim of a gang rape but she chose not to tell the boys and claimed it was an accident. Tara was in the know of this but she also kept it a secret. Maggie Siff who plays Tara said, "The revelation of what happened to Gemma is so big in and of itself that it's kind of distracting from everything else around it. There isn't a ton of blowback. It's something that's dealt with, but at the end of the day it's pretty easy to understand why Tara's kept that secret."
