CTV's procedural drama, Motive, experienced a changing of the guard in season four. Warren Christie's Sergeant Mark Cross disappeared, while Victor Zinck Jr. joined the series' homicide team as Detective Mitch Kennecki.

He's been missing in action lately, but Mitch Kennecki returns in a major way in August 23's "Chronology of Pain" and for the series finale, "We'll Always Have Homicide", on August 30.

The Emerson Hotel has a spacious lobby, some charming rooms, and if you know the right route to take, a time machine connected through a few back hallways. Sound intriguing? Well, it is, but it's not a funky themed hotel in Toronto, it just happens to be the impressive set of 12 Monkeys, and late last year I took a little staycation there for the afternoon, with a quick visit to the all-important Suite 607.
Eleven teams of internet celebrities are facing off in challenges around the world as they compete for a chance at a million dollars in the 28th edition of The Amazing Race.
