A Major Death on 'Sons of Anarchy'

October 10, 2009 06:31:12 GMT

Someone on "Sons of Anarchy" will die and it's not going to be a pretty sight. E! Online has reported that one major character will meet a dead end this season, particularly in the eighth episode called "Potlatch" which is airing October 27 on FX Network.

Noting that this dead is involving blood and brain, E! said that the character will be someone fans hold dearly to their heart and someone close to the club. He or she is also a character from the first season but it won't be Chibs who narrowly escaped an explosion set up to end the life of a SAMCRO member earlier this season. Another hint is, "this killing doesn't have a clear analogue in Shakespeare's play Hamlet".

October 09, 2009 08:58:28 GMT

The CW has mashed up altogether the previews to the next three "Supernatural" episodes. The first one which is airing next week is called "I Believe the Children Are Our Future" and it will see Sam and Dean investigating a series of odd murders that strangely resemble fairy tales and urban legends. The brothers track down an 11-year-old boy named Jesse (guest star Gattlin Griffith) and realize that whatever Jesse believes is coming true. Castiel tells Sam and Dean that Jesse is a serious threat and needs to be eliminated.

The episode after "Children" will be "The Curious Case of Dean Winchester". As similar as it sounds to "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", the storyline itself involves Dean being 70-year-old. In the casting report, it is said that the aging version has not lost any of his verve or edge but his speed. This episode would be the one with the poker player who has a wicked sense of humor and has the ability to read people. "Curious" is airing October 29.

October 09, 2009 06:05:04 GMT

The reason why Demetri did not get a vision of his future while the others did during the global blackout has started to come into sense with Nhadra Udaya telling him a specific date. In the preview for the next "FlashForward" episode, Nhadra said March 15, 2010 and Demetri later told Mark that he is not just gonna die, but murdered.

In "Black Swan", Demetri accuses Mark of waiting for the future he saw in his flashforward to come true without incident, while Mark feels Demetri is letting his fear of what he witnessed envelop his life.
