Showtime has released a super exciting recap/teaser for Season 2 of Homeland.  Showrunner Alex Gansa also met with TVLine for some intel on the shows highly anticipated second season which is still 5 months away (Sept 30).  Gansa says viewers will see “right away” how Carrie gets back involved with the investigation into Abu Nazir and his master plan, whatever that might now be — despite the fact that, having copped to mental illness, she is now unwelcome with the CIA. “It would have been too far a jump to bring her back into the fold full bore,” Gansa acknowledges. “However, there are ways that she can work around the edges of the intelligence community that make sense.”  He also says “Carrie has willed herself into a place of mental health, so she’s very different from where she was last year.”  Head to TVLine for more from the interview with Gansa.

The May 3rd episode of Grey’s Anatomy is going to be a doozie (doosie?).  The episode title is “Let The Bad Times Roll” and according to ABC’s synopsis of the episode, the Seattle Grace residents agonize over their oral boards, reliving every answer they gave during their exams … and Catherine (recurring guest star Debbie Allen) tells Richard that one of his residents has failed!  Meanwhile, Arizona’s close childhood friend (Jordan Belfi) comes to Seattle Grace for medical help; the doctors work on a patient who is missing one third of his skull; and Julia asks Mark to start a family with her.  Who do you think fails their boards and more importantly, is this finally the end of Mark and Lexie??
