90210 | Why is Billy Ray Cyrus returning as Judd Ridge? E!Online reports that in Episode 22, Austin will call on a little favor from his dear ol’ country music star dad to help out Adrianna’s career using his connections to the music business. Oh, if only real life was as giving as tv life.

Which Backstreet Boy will make a bachelorette appearance? A number of surprise guests have showed up over the years, but in the May 8 episode, Nick Carter is set to make an unexpected visit as himself. According to EW, Naomi Clark will invite the boy band singer to a bachelorette party as a favor to the bride, who has had a crush on him since junior high. Again, I tell you, tv life is so much more giving than real life.

Which West Bev alum will return later this season? Though the exact details, including storyline and date, are being kept secret, Zap2it has the scoop on Trevor Donovan’s reappearance as Teddy Montgomery: And the only thing they’ve been allowed to say is that Teddy will face a life-changing decision after he reunites with an old classmate.

And last, but not least, what’s this about a wedding? While rumor has it this season may end with a wedding, at this point TVLine can only confirm there will in fact be an engagement. Any guesses on the lucky couple?

Don’t miss the next all new episode “Blood Is Thicker Than Mud” on March 13 with guest stars Nick Zano, La Toya Jackson and Train.

The Walking Dead | What do we know about this Sunday’s penultimate episode? Merely that last week’s big death shocker is going to pale in comparison to what’s in store for us. TVGuide and TVLine have revealed this week’s “Better Angels” will feature two very significant deaths, one of which we already know to be Shane, and will also include some spectacular zombie kills via pitchfork. Plus: A big piece of the mythology about the walkers will be revealed.

If you missed last week’s “Judge, Jury, Executioner,” you can check out our comic-to-tv comparison of the episode here.

Fringe | Who will be joining the cast as the ‘Alt Female FBI Agent’? In a previous spoiler post, I reported that Henry Ian Cusick would play the ‘Alt Male FBI Agent’ in the mysterious Episode 19, while his younger recurring female costar had yet to be chosen. TVLine now has the latest with the casting of blonde Australian actress Georgina Haig as his partner Etta. Have you noticed her similarities to Anna Torv?

Fringe will return with the all-new episode “A Short Story About Love” on March 23.

The Vampire Diaries | Will we finally meet Jeremy and Elena’s parents? Until now, Grayson and Miranda Gilbert have only been glimpsed in photographs, but very soon we’ll get our chance to see them in the flesh, albeit via flashback. E!Online has learned the show is currently casting actors who are willing to learn scuba diving for an underwater scene. Underwater, you say? Isn’t that how the two died?

What else will this flashback show us? Just that, per E!Online, Jeremy’s parents knew he was involved in something secret before they died. That’s right, we’ll also see the return of Jeremy to the show via flashback!

The Vampire Diaries finally returns next week with “1912,” as we get a glimpse back to Damon’s past and new character Sage (guest star Cassidy Freeman). Photos and a promo for the episode can be seen here and here.

Sage and Damon will then reunite in present day on March 22 in “Break on Through”. Photos for this episode are here.
