Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on Chuck, Glee, Bones, Smallville, House, Grey's and more!

Got a scoop request? An anonymous tip you’re dying to share? Just want to say hi? You can send any/all of the above to askausiello@tvline.com.

Question: The only spoiler I’m interested in right now is: When will your website be up!?! —Hatts
Ausiello: The wait is over. All together now, “Bus driver, MOVE. THAT. BUS.” TVLine.com is live!

Question: What’s in the Hatch? —Susan
Really? It’s the first Ask Ausiello back after my two-month hibernation, er, career transition, and instead of asking a legitimate question you decide to test out some new standup material?! What an Aushole.

Question: How about some Chuck scoop to celebrate your first Ask Ausiello at TVLine.com? —Hillary
Works for me. Mark your calendars for Jan. 17. That’s the date Jeffster makes its triumphant return. But that’s old news. Here’s some new news: They’ll be performing a cover of Whitesnake’s “Is This Love.” In other Chuck news, Lou Diamond Phillips has been cast as the V.O.W. (Villain of The Week) in 4.15, “Chuck vs. The Cat Squad.”

Question: There’s speculation that Callie is pregnant on Grey’s Anatomy. What say you? —Jar Ring
I say no comment.

Question: Can we please have a Grey’s Anatomy spoiler about Mer/Der? What’s going on with McBaby? —Debra
The prospect of a McBaby is a major topic of conversation in the Jan. 13 episode. (Hint: They want one. They really, really want one.)

Question: Do you wanna talk about the proposal coming up on Bones later this season? I’m a little bit (read: extremely) nervous about it. —Amanda
I do want to talk about the proposal, mostly just to set the record straight. There is not — I repeat not — one proposal coming up on Bones later this season. There are two, both of which my source says will “shake things up substantially.” The identity of one of the couples is pretty obvious. But the other? Not so much. Speculate away in the comments section!

Question: Heart-crushed that Booth shot down Brennan in the December 9 episode of Bones. I need something to make my heart full again. I need some positive Booth/Brennan scoop! Go! —Shay
They’re going to be spending Valentine’s Day together. Alone.

Question: Any new news on the new season of Torchwood? —Jackie
Captain Jack & Co. will be setting up shop in Los Angeles for part of the season, but the question you should be asking yourself is where in La-La Land will their operations be based? Will they be at…

A) The Beverly Hills Hotel
B) The Courtyard Marriot in Century City
C) Some random Motel 6 in the Valley
D) Bruce Willis’ Malibu compound.

The answer has been Waldo’d somewhere below.

Question: Congrats on the new site! As a late Christmas gift, I’m going to need all the info you have on the Glee Super Bowl episode, ASAP. —Stacy
Would you believe me if I told you that the original draft of the post-‘Supe script did not include Kurt or his crush Blaine? Well, believe it. Luckily, Ryan Murphy shoehorned the pair into the high-profile episode at the 11th hour — much to the relief of one Chris Colfer. “It definitely made me a little nervous that they were having a huge episode without my character, to be sure,” Colfer confesses. “But they did squeeze us in. We’re in it for, like, a minute, but it’s a very happy minute.” The Golden Globe nominee goes on to admit that life on the Glee set has been a little “odd” since his character left McKinley High for the far more inclusive Dalton Academy. “It feels like I’m on a different show,” he says. “It’s kind of lonely to be honest, because I don’t have Amber [Riley] there with me. It’s weird. I feel like I’m a guest star.”

Question: I can’t tell how glad I am that you are back. I am going through Glee withdrawal. Do you have any scoop for us? —Bethany
POTENTIAL NEW COUPLE ALERT: Rumor has it the show’s Valentine’s episode will feature a flashback to Puck (Mark Saling) and Lauren’s (Ashley Fink) infamous seven minutes in heaven. And as he previously raved, it most definitely rocked his world.

Question: Glee seems to have paired up everyone except Mercedes. Is she ever going to get a boyfriend? —M.K.M
Not in the near future. In fact, there’s a scene in Valentine’s episode where Mercedes gives Rachel a big speech about the advantages of being single. Apparently, while all of her peers were knee-deep in romance drama, Mercedes was focusing on herself. (Funny story: That’s what I told my friends in high school too. OK, sad story.)

Question: Will Finn and Rachel get back together in Glee‘s V-Day episode? —Amanda
Um, no. Finn actually has his eye on someone else. I’ve said too much!

Question: What’s coming up necks on Vampire Diaries? —Krista
Necks. Funny. The long-awaited Bonnie-Jeremy smooch will finally be sealed in February/March. Right around the same time, Elena decides that the only way to save her family and friends is to sacrifice herself to Klaus (role still being cast).

Question: Can you tell us something about how Tyler and Caroline’s relationship is going to develop on The Vampire Diaries? —Nuria
It’s going to develop into a (wait for it… ) triangle. And the third wheel’s name?! (Drumroll… ) Matt!

THIS JUST IN: The answer to the Torchwood multiple-choice quiz is D) Bruce Willis’ Malibu compound. Congratulations to all the winners! Thanks for playing!

Question: A while back you hinted that there would be two breakups this season on House. Were Wilson/Sam one of them? And, if so, can you ID Couple No. 2? —Jacob
Yes, Wilson/Sam were one of the two. I’m not going to spoil the other relationship that’s about to crater, but I will say this: I actually teased that there would be at least two breakups this season. The key words being at and least.

Question: When does Olivia Wilde return to House? —Joel
I believe her first episode back is 7.18.

Question: Smallville producers have hinted that Chloe’s return will be awesome/badass. Care to elaborate? —Mercy
Here’s your one and only hint: The Matrix. In related news, look for a big Chlollie moment at the end of the Feb. 18 episode. And I do mean big.

Question: You’re back! Huzzah! I need some Fringe scoop please. I’ll take anything. —Hayley
My “Over There” mole tells me that an upcoming episode will flash back to 1985 to show the consequences of Walter’s kidnapping of Peter from the alt-universe.

Question: Castle? Please, please, please?  My birthday is this week, and I’m a totally loyal fan since TV Guide (just ask Matt), so please give me some really juicy Castle scoop? —Gina
Spoke to Matt. He says he wouldn’t know you if he tripped over you at Subway. But that’s neither here nor there. A Castle scoop you want, a Castle scoop you get: A Castle-Beckett smooch won’t be the only plot twist in the show’s Jan. 24 episode. The ep will also feature some significant movement in Beckett’s quest to find her mother’s killer. Oh, and regarding the Big Kiss, let’s just say there’s a lot more to the story.

Question: Any new stuff on Supernatural? —Christy
As you may or may not have heard, a late winter episode will obliterate the fourth wall by transporting Sam and Dean to an alt-uni where they are actors named Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki starring in a cult TV show called Supernatural. Wait, it gets wink-winkier: In this other dimension, Sam/Jared has a wife — and it’s none other than Padalecki’s real-life bride (and former ‘Supe costar) Genevieve Cortese!

Question: Any decision on the new lead for Spartacus: Blood and Sand? —Charles
Not yet. Aussie actor Liam McIntyre was firmly in the running as of a few weeks ago, but ultimately producers decided that he wasn’t their guy. So it’s back to the drawing board. THIS JUST IN: A little birdie tells me that McIntyre may be back in the running!

Question: So excited about the launch of your new site! I, too, am obsessed with The Good Wife. Any scoop for us? —Andrew
This season’s breakout prop — Kalinda’s bat — will make a triumphant return later this season, only this time she’ll be assaulting a (literally) softer target: Blake himself! Coincidentally, the attack comes at a time when Scott Porter‘s future on the show is very much in doubt. “We’ve been discussing [bringing Scott on full-time] from the beginning and the decision has to be made quickly,” exec producer Robert King told TVLine’s Matt Mitovich. “There are so many other things Scott is doing, I don’t know if that is likely. But we have a very good Plan B if it’s unlikely.”

Question: I cannot wait for Parks and Recreation to return! Any scoop on my favorite parks department? —Carter
Andy is going to go to great (read: grotesque) lengths to prevent April from moving far away from Pawnee; a dark secret about Ben’s political past comes to light; and we finally learn where Tom buys his hipster threads (hint B***** B******* B***.)

Question: What’s ahead for Serena and her former professor on Gossip Girl? Their last scene was pretty great. —Ana
First they have to get past the little matter of you, know, her mother basically destroying his life. “The biggest obstacle for them will be can Ben ever actually get over what Serena’s family put him through,” explains EP Stephanie Savage. “It’s fine to blame Lily, but at a certain point it becomes part of a larger conversation about who these people are and how they conduct themselves. And just the reality of Ben trying to get on his feet and figure out what he’s going to do with his life is pretty challenging now, and how does Serena fit into that equation — if she does at all?”

Question: I need Ask Ausiello back in my life! I also need some Greek spoilers in my life. What amazing things can we expect to see from my favorite Cyprus Rhodes co-eds? —Jon H
Some fresh blood! In the final season’s second episode, we’ll meet Heath’s oft-referred-to-but-never-seen younger sister (played by newcomer Caitlin Thompson). “We’ve referenced her in the past as the underage girl who Beaver hit on,” explains series creator Sean Smith. “Her name’s Heather, but it’s pronounced HEE-ther. She’s ditzy like Heath and becomes a ZBZ pledge as well as President Logan’s lackey pledge.”

Question: First of all, congrats to you and Matt and everyone else involved in this TVLine adventure. Now on to the question. It’s simple: Got any Danny/Lindsay CSI: NY scoops? —Jessi
I’ve got nothing on the DL sitch but I do have this: Hawkes is getting a special ladyfriend! Spartacus beauty Lesley-Ann Brandt has been cast as a potentially recurring love interest for Hill Harper’s lovelorn detective.

Question: Will Crosby and Jasmine get married on Parenthood? —Jane
A month ago I would’ve said yes. But now that I know what’s going to happen between Crosby and Gaby, I’m not so certain.

Question: How many more episodes will Jennifer Morrison be on How I Met Your Mother? —Iveta
You’ll see quite a bit more of Zoey, beginning with the Jan. 24 episode. “Her relationship with Ted continues to get more and more complicated,” teases EP Carter Bays. “There are a lot of twists coming.”

Question: I need a True Blood scoop. Maybe something on Jessica and Hoyt? —Endrick
Rumor has it Season 4 will not be kind to my favorite Blood duo. Actually it’s more fact than rumor since Alan Ball just confirmed for me via email, “The honeymoon’s over.”

Question: Friday Night Lights? I can’t believe the end is near. —Jeff
End? Who says it’s ending? (Mmmm…. Denial.) Before the last touchdown is scored, one character will enlist, another will get engaged, and *** *e*** **** *e**** ***.

  12. Maryanne says:

    Welcome back!

  13. Mooshki says:

    I was hoping FNL would suck this season so the pain of the ending wouldn’t be so bad, but it has let me down. Sigh…

  14. Mandy says:

    Congratulations on the new site! It looks fantastic. Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a Chlollie spoiler! They’re my favorite couple.

  16. Brittany says:

    Welcome Back! The site looks great! Thank you for the Chloe & Chlollie spoilers! we’ve all been waiting (not)so patiently for some news.

  17. sara says:


    But I want some Puckleberry scoop from Glee!

  18. sweet says:

    Boo on Mercedes sataying single while everyone else is coupled up. The “happy to single” line is as lame as the “happy to be big boned” line women use. I want to play the race card here but I’m abstain for the moment..

  19. Silvia says:

    Congratulations on your new site and thank you for the scoop on Chloe and Chlollie.

  20. Donny says:

    Michael Ausiello is back and his return brings some great Chloe spoilers! Thank you so much for the Chloe scoop. It’s been a looong wait for her and your return.

  21. First of all, Mike, welcome back! We missed you sooo much! Secondly, have you had a chance to sneak peek the Smurfs movie yet (or is it already on DVD, I have no idea)? Thirdly, any V scoop? Anything for No Ordinary Family? How about White Collar? (I heard that Mozzie is still alive. Can you confirm? Please?) Do you hate Zoey on How I Met Your Mother as much as I do? Finally, who shot Paul Young?

  22. SCLove says:

    WELCOME BACK!!!! Wow, so glad the new website is up and running!

    Thanks for the House, Greek, and The Good Wife scoop!!!

  23. janine says:

    at least two relationships will tank on House? well the only other people in relationships are Taub and House/Cuddy. I know House/Cuddy are together a little longer at least so I guess the next relationship to tank will be Taub’s.

    • Sarah says:

      MTE. There are only two couples on HOUSE-H/C and T/R. Everyone knew they wouldn’t keep H/C together-even the actors said it from the beginning. That was only a matter of time. But Taub and Rachel are breaking up too? This show–smh. Thanks for the scoop, Mike. Good to have you back.

  24. Billie says:


  25. Maggie says:

    I’ve missed you! I’m so happy about the site! It looks great!!!!

  26. Cece says:

    It’s like I didn’t even realize how much I missed your scoops until I got a healthy Vampire Diaries dose. I feel like I’ve been trapped in a world where no one watches the show but me and no one else wants spoilers on it (a smidge of an exaggeration, but you get my point). Welcome back, you Aushole :-D

  27. hatts says:

    Re the supernatural alt uni ep- so happy I could weep, this sound like the return of whatI love about SPN

  28. hatts says:

    ps. welcome back, thanks for aswering my Q!

  29. Briana says:

    Welcome back! I have missed you so much! However, I want more Darren Criss news stat. Glee related, not StarkidPotter related because I already know what’s going on.

  30. Steph says:

    Thanks for the Bones scoop. I’ve slowly been dying on the inside and now I have something to hope for. B&B alone on V. DAY FTW! <3

  31. Jenny says:

    Where is the Pretty Little Liars scoop?

  32. Tesha says:

    Welcome back Mike! I sure missed you! Great first AA, can’t wait for scoop, scoop, and more scoop. :)

  33. Kayleigh Butler says:

    Crosby and GABY? Say it ain’t so!

  34. […] TV Line Posted by: Nessa • Filed Under: S10 Spoilers Comments: No […]

  35. Captain T says:

    Oh thank goodness, I have missed you Michael! Bookmarked this site before it was operating just so I wouldn’t miss out. Thanks for the great scoop, keep it coming!

  36. Kris says:

    I guess SPN really has jumped the shark now.

  37. Halie says:

    Thank you for the Finn spoilers on Glee, but I’m actually pissed that they’re having him eye another girl right after he broke up with Rachel. Cory Monteith is a wonderful actor and is a real talent on this show, but they’re not doing him any favors with their writing for Finn this season. I hope they bring the character back with more to do and in a good way, I love Cory!

  38. Nat says:

    The Supernatural spoiler?
    Can I puke now? The writers should know better than to keep the actor’s personal lives separated from the show. All sacrifised in the alter of employing Jared’s wife?

  39. Bee says:

    congrats on the site!
    merder really REALLY wanting a baby? does that imply lots of sex? haha
    and omg the FNL spoilers are getting me all tingly lol army? engagement? asterick thingy? so excited.

  40. Jake says:

    Yeay Michael! So glad to be back. Now that u have your own site, u should make the ‘Ask Ausiello’ bit twice as long!

  41. […] and taken from Michael Ausiello’s brand new website, TVLine.com, […]

  42. Gendra says:

    HIMYM is much better this season but Jennifer Morrison´s Zoe is the worst addition to the show in a long long time. She is not the mother so i don´t get why they are shoving her down our throats anymore. The teasing is done, let´s move on.

  43. Amber says:

    My guess as to the expected couple Booth/Hannah proposal. We will all (or at least most of us) hate it. I think is the only way to put it but it would shake things up. As for the unexpected not a clue. Not one. This is due to the fact that the unexpected ones I could think of would not do any shaking up necessarily. It means we just have buckle in and hold on.

  44. Sharon says:

    Just wanted to say…I love you Ausiello and I really missed you!:-)

  45. Meg says:

    And crap like that is why i stopped watching Supernatural and feel no need to ever return. :/

  46. BoothBrennanForever says:

    If Booth/Hannah propose I will die! I recall Stephen Nathan or someone else saying it was gonna be a happy proposal that fans would like….Can someone please tell me how a Booth/Hannah engagement would be a good thing for B&B fans??!! As for the other couple I have no freaking clue! :)

  47. Dee says:

    FINALLY! Some Chloe scoop! And a “big” Chlollie moment? YYEEEAAAHHH! I WILL DIE!!!Thank you Ausiello! I can’t wait until the 28th! The month is going sooo slooow it’s killing me! And Puck and Lauren? YES! I love her. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for some serious Puck and Rachel loving cause they would be AMAZING together
