Yvonne Strahovski Fans, Unite! This Is Your Night!

Yvonne Strahovski appears in two shows Monday night. Isn't that wonderful? It is if you happen to be a Strahovski enthusiast, as I am.

It may even be more wonderful if you don't know her yet, and take the opportunity to watch FOX's 24: Live Another Day, premiering at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and the second of two back-to-back episodes of FX's Louie, which begins a new season at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

I first became intrigued by this Australian actress during season 7 of Showtime's Dexter, starring Michael C. Hall. She played serial killer Dexter Morgan's soul mate, Hannah McKay. Hannah also had a string of murders to her credit, but she killed with rational premeditation, not for kinky satisfaction.

Good Luck, Good Wife: 13 TV Shows That Survived Killing off Major Characters

Originally posted 03/24/2014 12:00PM

Killing off a main character in a television show is a risky move: You're upending the show's world (and putting a coworker out of a job) in the hope that the shake-up will lead to something greater down the line. And guess what? Despite the ministrations of fans, who claim that they will never watch their favorite show without [insert character name here], it often works!

Below, 13 shows that did the same thing The Good Wife did Sunday night, and not only survived, but thrived.

The Dexter Finale: So, What Happened?

Originally posted 09/23/2013 09:00AM

After eight seasons of blood and fun, Showtime's Dexter ended Sunday night on a note of ponderous sorrow and penitence. You might as soon have expected Hannibal Lecter to open a funeral home for the indigent, or the Talented Mr. Ripley to sculpt balloons into animals for nursing-home patients.

So what happened to Michael C. Hall's Dexter Morgan, the Miami forensic analyst who, in secret, was a serial killer who got off on murdering fellow serial killers?

SPOILER ALERT: Plot details to follow.

Bite Into a Killer Dexter-Themed Dessert

Originally posted 09/30/2012 03:30PM

As if Sunday's return of Showtime's popular slasher series Dexter wasn't sweet enough, pastry chef Sarah Magoon of Fort Lauderdale hot spot Steak 954 has created a dessert recipe inspired by the show.

Magoon got the idea for her Dexter-themed dessert – a cheesecake brulée topped with any berry compote – from the show’s opening sequence.

"The presentation reminded me of when Michael C. Hall is going through his morning routine of cooking eggs and cutting open a blood orange," she told PEOPLE. "There are all of these different things, especially food-wise, that are reminiscent of blood splatters."

Amanda Seyfried Steps Out with Dexter Actor Desmond Harrington

Is a new romance – dare we say, puppy love – in Amanda Seyfried's life?

The In Time star, 26, was spotted in Los Angeles Friday morning with Dexter's Desmond Harrington, 34.

Sporting workout duds and rival baseball caps (Detroit Tigers for him; N.Y. Yankees for her), they were accompanied by Seyfried's rescue dog, Finn.

Their hike together comes after Seyfried and Black Hawk Down star Josh Hartnett cooled things down earlier this summer.

Dexter Season 6 Trailer Hits the Web

America's favorite serial killer is back.

When the Emmy-nominated series Dexter returns to Showtime Oct. 2 for its sixth season, Michael C. Hall's bloodthirsty character – who successfully killed off all Lumen's torturers in season 5 – will be focused on his son Harrison, and whether he will grow up to be a killer like his dad.

Hall told the crowd at Comic-Con in San Diego that this is where religion will enter the picture. (The season 6 trailer even features Depeche Mode's iconic song "Personal Jesus.")
