Welcome back! This morning's spoilers include a new synopsis of the Captain America movie — and some shocking photos from the James Bond movie Quantum Of Solace. Two new reports on the filming of Lost put together more pieces of the season five puzzle. We have more crazy Doctor Who rumors. There's our first look at Kendra Shaw like you've never seen her before, from Sarah Connor Chronicles. Plus new spoilers and pics for Heroes, Fringe, Quarantine, Sanctuary, Stargate and Life On Mars. Start your week spoiled! Captain America: Industry journal Production Weekly included a synopsis of Captain America: The First Avenger, which pretty much jibes with what we've heard a bunch before. (Grain of salt time: sometimes those production listings are just based on the comic book or other source material.) Here it is:
Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe,Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy's earnest plea,General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment... Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by "vita-rays." Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later,he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and as leader of the Avengers.
[Cinema Blend] Quantum Of Solace: For now we're reserving judgment on whether the new James Bond film is science fiction or not. And anyway, here's a fairly bizarre thing. New co-star Gemma Atherton gets killed by being smothered in crude oil, in a callback to Jill Masterson's death by gold paint in Goldfinger. Atherton plays an MI6 agent assigned to keep tabs on a renegade James Bond. Atherton says her character comes to "a sticky end." Ha ha. I would have gone for a "peak oil" joke, personally.

Quarantine: Here are even more pics from the Cloverfield/28 Days Later/Blindness mashup, which still don't show much of the zombie-ish plague victims. [Movie Spoilers]
Lost: More Lost filming. Kate and a toddler Aaron were at the "Long Beach Harbor Club." And it sounds like Ben and all of the Oceanic Six, except Hurley, also showed up at some point. Sun is now driving a silver Jaguar S-class. This may come right after the scene where Ben, Jack and Sayid are at the medical center. [Hawaii Weblog] Meanwhile, someone witnessed filming of a scene between Ben, Desmond and a woman. (Either Sun or Penny, but the source thinks it was Sun.) Ben and the woman are talking, and Desmond runs up and demands "What are you doing here?" (Looking at the photo, it certainly looks like Sun to me. But it's super blurry and hard to tell.) [Bolo-head Man via Doc Arzt] Also, hints that when we discover Jin's fate in episode four or five, he may not actually be alive. And there's a rumor that another favorite character (Sawyer?) gets off the island. [Doc Arzt] Doctor Who: More reports that Patrick Stewart will show up on Doctor Who as the Meddling Monk, the cheeky Time Lord last seen in 1966. Apparently Stewart's schedule may not align for him to take the role until 2010. But it is sounding like a recurring role, and "the role is a belter," says one unnamed insider. Meanwhile, Tom Baker is still rumored to be back, as the Doctor or some other character. [The Sun and the Daily Star and Sky] Meanwhile, Russell T. Davies says the Doctor might show up on the Sarah Jane Adventures, but not this season. And he says the scripts are a bit more complex in SJA season two, because the six-year-olds who watched it last year are seven, and more curious about the mythology. [Times Online] Stargate: Amanda Tapping is definitely going to be in the third SG-1 DVD movie, but may or may not be in the first Atlantis movie. [Gateworld] Meanwhile, the penultimate episode, "Vegas," takes place in an alternate universe where John Sheppard became a homicide detective. He investigates a case involving a Wraith, who uses makeup to disguise himself as a human. The Wraith gets into a high-stakes poker game with Sopranos stars Steve Schirripa and Frank Vincent. Someone takes a nine-story fall, and there's a lot of scenes in and around the Planet Hollywood casino. [Gateworld] Fringe: Here are pictures and a description of episode six, "The Cure":
CURE FOR RARE DISEASE MAKES PATIENTS RADIOACTIVE ON “FRINGE” TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21, ON FOX. After weeks of being reported missing, a woman with a rare disease resurfaces in suburban Massachusetts and inexplicably causes excruciating pain and subsequent death to those she encounters. As the gruesome scene is investigated, dangerous levels of radiation are detected, and unusual circumstances surrounding the case point to illegal human drug trials and possibly something even more sinister. Meanwhile, Walter obsesses about cotton candy, Peter strikes a bargain with Nina Sharp and a startling piece of Olivia’s past is revealed.
Heroes: On tonight's episode of Heroes, Future Peter tells Present Peter to use a potentially destructive ability to save the world. Then Present Peter meets Future Claire, who threatens him at gunpoint, and has a weird encounter with Future Sylar. Meanwhile, Mohinder is confused. I can't imagine why. Oh, and Hiro and Ando dig up Adam looking for info on who hired Daphne. [Ace Showbiz] And here are some snazzy pics of Future Peter and Future Claire. They're snazzy! [Heroes Spoilers]
Life On Mars: Here's the description of the third episode, "My Maharishi Is Bigger Than Your Maharishi," plus some pictures:

As Sam and the squad's team of detectives explore the circumstances surrounding the homicide, Tyler is sent down a mysterious path that may provide clues about his own family's past and why he is back in 1973.
Sarah Connor Chronicles: In the Terminator show's eighth episode, "The Tower Is Tall But The Fall Is Short":
