Morland Holmes wants to help. Or, at least, that is what he wants Sherlock to believe in an exclusive clip from this week’s Elementary season 4, episode 2, “Evidence of Things Not Seen.”

The tension between the two Holmes men is palpable in an exclusive clip from this week’s Elementary season 4, episode 2, “Evidence of Things Not Seen.” Last week’s premiere saw the estranged father and son meet atop the brownstone where Sherlock’s father, Morland Holmes, more or less appeared annoyed by his obligation to appear in New York to “fix” the fallout from Sherlock’s relapse.

The opening of “Evidence of Things Not Seen,” however, goes a bit deeper into Mr. Holmes’ feeling of personal obligation to his son’s sobriety. Could the devil Sherlock spoke of these past three seasons truly be that bad?

Clenched fists, words spoken through gritted teeth, the Holmes men are two powder kegs about to explode. But they keep it civil, at least for one afternoon. A huge promise looms at the end of their conversation — Sherlock and Joan’s reinstatement with the NYPD. Morland Holmes, as we know, is in his own way a consultant for the higher powers of the world. But does his smooth talking and greasing of palms in business world extend to his own family?

Sherlock would have us believe so. His skepticism and tight-locked posture in Morland’s presence are not indicators of a man who feels at ease in present company. Morland, however, presents a convincing argument. For all the bad seed sowed between the two, there is a deep rooted concern that Morland feels for his son’s predicament.

Should we be so quick to judge? With prospects for Sherlock’s consulting work looking a bit bleak, Morland’s proposal is something worth considering. And, to support dear old dad for a second, Morland has a proven track record when it comes to offering assistance in regards to Sherlock’s sobriety. Beyond pairing him with Joan at the start of his recovery, Morland also stepped in to help Holmes out when his old drug dealer Reese showed up in season 1 and tried to get Sherlock high again. Neither arrangement, however, came without strings.

There is one more vital encounter on the horizon for this week’s episode that will be the deciding factor — Joan must meet Morland.

Watch Elementary season 4, episode 2, “Evidence of Things Not Seen,” Thursday, November 12 at 10:00 p.m. ET on CBS.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
