Rose McIver is sprinkling her pixie dust all over Hollywood these days.
After a winter break, Sunday marks the return of ABC's "Once Upon a Time," on which the New Zealand native charms as Tinker Bell, the feistiest fairy in the Enchanted Forest. The iconic character is a contrast from McIver's role on "Masters of Sex." On the Showtime series set in the 1950s, she plays Vivian Scully, the daughter of the university's provost (played by Beau Bridges) and an impeccably dressed and tressed candy striper who seems hell-bent on landing a doctor husband.
Further, the 26-year-old is currently shooting "Petals on the Wind," Lifetime's upcoming TV movie sequel to its hit adaptation of V.C. Andrews's "Flowers in the Attic." She's playing the starring role of Cathy, taking over for "Mad Men's" Kiernan Shipka, who played the younger version of the character in the first film. "Petals" picks up 10 years after the first film.

Just a week after the Bluegrass State duo were "philiminated" thanks to lost luggage and subsequent bickering, another "Amazing Race" all-star team might meet its Season 24 demise thanks to an avoidable misstep.
This time it is Dave and Connor O'Leary who find themselves up sh-- creek without a paddle, figuratively and almost literally. What can be deduced from this exclusive clip from Sunday's new episode is that the parent-child pair is floating down a river in Borneo on a raft of questionable sturdiness with a friendly Travelocity yard gnome looking for the sixth bridge and a food drop-off.
"The O'Leary boys become the wild men of Borneo river running. What a rush, what an experience," Dave gushed in an email statement to Yahoo TV. "Who wouldn't want to add that to their bucket list?"

Meet "The Simpsons" — with a French twist.
The first of Sunday night's two episodes will feature a special couch gag guest-directed by acclaimed animator Sylvain Chomet, whose films "Triplets of Belleville" and "The Illusionist" have earned Oscar nominations.
The gag, which airs before "Diggs" at 7:30 p.m. on Fox, highlights Chomet's unique, quirky style. Just as the Simpson family members sit on the couch, the lights go out — and suddenly, they transform into French versions of themselves.
Yahoo TV spoke with "Simpsons" producer Al Jean about working with Chomet, who joins creative minds including Guillermo del Toro, "Ren and Stimpy" creator John Kricfalusi, the "Robot Chicken" team, and Banksy in creating special couch gags for the long-running animated series.

Sgt. Wu is one of the greatest mysteries on "Grimm." After two and a half seasons of the NBC show, we pretty much only know that he's a cop, single, a cat lover, a foodie, and a reliable source of sarcastic one-liners. Even Reggie Lee, the actor who plays Wu, doesn't have that many more details to offer.
All that changes this week with the "Mommy Dearest" episode, in which Wu's pregnant childhood friend (and unrequited love) is attacked by an amniotic-fluid-eating Wesen called an Aswang. We also meet his cousin, find out that he despises pig knuckles and speaks Tagalog, and hear more about his cat. We see a young Wu in a flashback and watch as he catches his first true glimpse of the supernatural side of Portland. Even his first name is revealed.

Whoa… is Roger Sterling getting into graphic design?
Hot on the heels of releasing a first-look trailer for the final season of "Mad Men," AMC now hits us with the official Season 7 poster — and it's groovy, baby. (Austin Powers would approve.)
The poster takes the falling Don Draper from the "Mad Men" opening credits and puts him in front of a swirling psychedelic landscape of hippie ingénues, blooming flowers, and free-flowing booze — a perfect fit for the late-'60s era that Don and company now find themselves in. (Last season left off in the fall of 1968.)
And like Season 6's enigmatic poster, this one was designed by a titan of the "Mad Men" era: Milton Glaser, whose colorfully trippy ad designs defined the late 1960s. (Glaser's most famous works include the iconic "I Heart NY" logo, seen below; he also co-founded New York magazine in 1968.)

In death, as in life, Katherine Pierce is as selfish as she was over the last five centuries.
Just after her daughter, Nadia, dies of a were-bite, Katherine finally can't outrun her enemies. Stefan plunges the Traveler's knife into Elena's body, expelling Katherine's spirit. But as she prepares to go to the Other Side, she reveals a nasty secret to Bonnie — that she injected Elena's body with a modified, lethal dose of the Maxfield's Ripper virus.
As she tells Bonnie, "If I can't have Stefan, then no one can."
So, this is the end of Katherine, the ultimate survivor? Seems like it. And not only that, karma kicks her in a harsh way, as she doesn't even get to go to the Other Side with Nadia. Instead, she's pulled away by some other force — perhaps hell?
Here's a rundown of all the relationship drama on this week's "Vampire Diaries":

Mads Mikkelsen's Hannibal Lecter is one of the best-dressed men on TV, so we thought it'd be fitting to immortalize his inimitable style with a "Hannibal" paper doll. Hey — cannibals like to dress up, too!
"Hannibal" Season 2 just keeps getting darker and more twisted (Fridays at 10 p.m. on NBC), so we encourage you to balance out the beautiful show's more unsavory moments with a bit of wit by printing out and playing with Paper Hannibal. We promise he won't bite.
Whether he's in one of his signature custom suits, that blood-spatter-proof clear plastic number for killing, or an apron for cooking his human prey, Dr. Lecter always looks put together.
Even in Will Graham's (Hugh Dancy) nightmares, his midnight blue stag face is nothing if not regal. Which look is your favorite?
(Hint: Click on the poster to enlarge for printing. We strongly suggest you print two copies — one for display and one to cut up and play.)
And here's a nice animated GIF of the paper doll if you need to see him in action:
"Hannibal" airs Fridays at 10 p.m. on NBC.

This was a pretty scary episode of "Scandal." Let's go over the top three most frightening events:
1. Abby telling David "I love you."
2. Huck bringing Olivia coffee — three times!
3. Olivia saying "I don't know."
Olivia Pope doesn't know ? Is this some sort of alternate "Scandal" universe, because Olivia Pope always knows?
The question at hand is a tough one: Fitz asks Liv whether she has feelings for Jake. And in his usual slightly creepy, stalker-y way, Jake witnesses her answer on a video: a) It's none of Fitz's business, and b) She just doesn't know. What, was the fake sex that good?
Can Jake be our fake boyfriend? #Scandal
That's nearly as disturbing as learning that Harrison's femme fatale Adnan Salif and Liv's mom, Maya Pope, are in cahoots!
Adnan SALIF and Maya Pope...VISIONS in blue...ARE WE IN?.....we're IN.#askscandal
Let's run down this week's episode, shall we?

Later this season, "American Idol" will streamline its weekly results shows to only a half-hour. But this week, Fox still had a whole hour to kill, so the network decided to fill what felt like 23 of those 60 minutes with a group therapy session that really would've been a better fit for "Tough Love," "Charm School," or one of those '90s boot camp-themed episodes from "Sally Jesse Raphael."
Truth be told (and it was definitely told), the man leading this venting sesh — Hatchet Harry, aka tough-loving judge Harry Connick Jr. — offered some real nuggets of showbiz wisdom. It was the kind of stuff that this season's young, thin-skinned contestants (who were shown earlier in the episode sitting around a dining table, eating comfort food and whining about the judges' mean remarks) probably needed to hear. But I would have preferred to hear a second song from excellent guest performer Phillip Phillips, personally.

How busy is chef and Food Network star Bobby Flay? So busy that he's talking to us about his new show, "Beat Bobby Flay," from Gato, a Mediterranean restaurant he's opening later in the day in downtown Manhattan. He also recently opened the 18th outpost of his Bobby's Burger Palace, in Las Vegas.
And then there's "Beat Bobby Flay," the new competition series that will find chefs from across the country challenging Flay in a one-on-one cook-off. The twists: His friends — like fellow chefs Scott Conant, Giada De Laurentiis, and Sunny Anderson — are trying to choose the contestants who can beat him, and then he must, on the fly, prepare his version of his opponent's signature dish.
"Beat Bobby Flay," where did the idea come from? It's something I've wanted to do for the last three years, and it finally came to fruition after all the tweaking and brainstorming and conversations.
