Top Moments: V's Alien Sex Scene and Kate Gosselin's Dancing Tantrum

Television is rife with ethically dubious characters. This week a bunch of them made us laugh, cry and cheer their misdeeds. Gossip Girl's Little J set her sights on her stepsister's boyfriend, Southland's Detective Bryant saw a young mentee become a murderer, Jesse exacted delicious revenge on his already exhausted parents on Breaking Bad, and Anna, V's alien den mother, followed up some really weird sex with a little cannibalism. Welcome to Top Moments: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Edition.

11. Best Cliff-hanger: Caprica's mid-season finale reveals that Zoe the Robot Dead Girl is on the run! After learning that her father, Daniel Graystone, plans to remove her consciousness from its Cylon body for eventual destruction, Zoe high-tails it out the door to join her Soldiers of the One cohorts in Gemenon. She kills her charming suitor, Philomon, along the way. It's unclear how the giant robot - essentially a giant pile of steel - will escape, given the massive roadblock she faces as the episode ends. But is it weird that we're kind of rooting for her?

10. Best Femme Fatale-in-Training: Our Little J is all growed up! In this week's Gossip Girl, a drugged Jenny Humphrey narrowly avoids a date rape with the help of a surprising rescuer: Nate Archibald (aka Serena's true love... this week). They've always been fond of each other, but Nate's protective overture raises visions of boyfriend-stealing in Little J's ethically complicated, peroxide compromised noggin. If Jenny's pathetic Internet stalking is any indication, Serena should prepare for the worst.

9. Best Intro: Fringe returns from a too-long hiatus with "Peter," a blockbuster episode that flashes back to 1985 to explain how the younger Bishop came to be both dead and not so. In keeping with the show's totally tubular setting, those cheeky monkeys at J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions reimagine the show's opening credits, theme song and title cards as if they had been created 25 years ago. The overall effect is subtly wry and eerily accurate.
