Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on House, The Office, Glee, NCIS, 90210, Bones 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

Question: House fans are worried about all these Huddy breakup rumors swirling around the show. Got any good news to cheer us up? —Erin
I’ve got potentially good news, which may or may not be related to Huddy: Wedding bells will ring at or near season’s end.  

Question: Something on NCIS, please! —Sara
Sasha Alexander’s dead agent is returning! Kind of, but not really! Allow me to explain: This season’s clip-heavy 14th episode revolves around the stressed-to-the-max team being forced into therapy. During their individual sessions, Gibbs & Co. flash back to some of their most emotionally taxing cases — Kate’s death obviously being at the top of the list.

Question: Is Callie’s pregnancy going to stick? I really don’t want to have to endure another Grey’s Anatomy miscarriage storyline. —Ana
It’s my understanding that this one will stick.

Question: Can you tell us anything about the Grey’s Anatomy musical episode? —Ana
I got my hands on a partial song list: Among the tracks being covered by the cast are The Fray’s “How to Save a Life” and Snow Patrol’s “Chasing Cars.” In related news, this episode will either be a show-stopping triumph or a spectacular failure. There can be no in between.

Exclusive: Look Who’s Returning to Grey’s Anatomy!

Question: It’s my birthday in a few weeks, and there would be no greater present then finding out that Will Arnett is replacing Steve Carell on The Office. Is there any chance of this happening? —Rose
Arnett would be perfect for the job, but I haven’t heard his name bandied about at all. Happy Birthday! Speaking of Dunder Mifflin’s succession plans, amid all the fan speculation about who’ll be taking the reins later this season (It’s a new character! It’s an old character! It’s a current character!), there’s one scenario that no one seems to be talking about. And they should be. Think, people, think!

Question: Please, do you have any Castle scoops? —Christi
In an upcoming episode, newbie couple Esposito and Lanie will go on a double date with Ryan and Jenny — and to say the fellas’ better halves do not hit it off is putting it mildly.

Question: Any new Castle scoop? —Daniel
SUPER-SIZED SCOOP: Piter Marek is joining the cast for a two-episode arc! [Crickets] OK, maybe that’s more of a medium-sized scoop. Anywhoo, the actor — best known as Willie’s Season 4 blackmailer on Ugly Betty — will appear in the upcoming two-parter starring Heroes‘ Adrian Pasdar. His character is described as a “resourceful entrepreneur who strives to look as American as possible.”

Question: Got anything on The Big C? Will the late, great Marlene be back next season — perhaps as a ghost? —Janet
TVLine’s Megan Masters recently put that question to exec producer Jenny Bicks, to which she responded emphatically, “Marlene’s not gone!” That noise you hear is Laura Linney’s Cathy dusting off her Ouija board.

Question: There seems to be some confusion about when the big “Booth/Brennan Elevator Episode” will air on Bones. Care to clear things up for us? —Nick
It’s No. 6.16, it’s scheduled to air March 3, and according to EP Stephen Nathan, “It’s going to be gooooood.” (Last time Nathan used that many O’s… um… has he ever used that many O’s? I don’t believe he has.)

Question: When will Hannah leave Bones? Please say soon. —Lexie
According to a little birdie whose name rhymes with Peevin Rathen, there will be a “very big” turning point for Booth and Hannah in the Feb. 10 episode; interpret that as you like. Coincidentally, that’s the same episode David Boreanaz delivers one of the best performances of his career, per that same little birdie.

Question: Any scoop about Hellcats? —Luca
They’re going to Nationals, baby! But there’s a catch. “We won’t see them competing this season,” reveals Aly Michalka (Marti). “We’ll pick up with [the competition] next season. It’s a really great way to open up our second season. It also leaves you on a massive cliffhanger.”

Question: After this week’s Reid-centric episode of Criminal Minds, I need some major scoop! Is Reid OK? Matthew Gray Gubler isn’t leaving, is he? —Brandi
I don’t think Gubler is going anywhere. There’s little to no discussion of Reid’s headaches in the next batch of episodes, and no news is good news, right? Meanwhile, I have a hunch Paget Brewster’s swan song will play out around Episode 17 or 18 when a dangerous criminal from Prentiss’ past breaks out of jail and goes hunting for her.

This Just In: 90210 Cuts Two Series Regulars

Question: How are the producers of The Event handling the season finale, considering they probably won’t know about a second season when they shoot it? Will they be wrapping up the alien arc, or will it end on a cliffhanger? —Charlie
The final episode will “complete the story of the first season,” says exec producer Evan Katz, “while setting up a radically different condition in the world for the second season — in the hopes that there is one.”

Question: On a scale of 1 to 10 — 1 being extremely unsure and 10 being almost obnoxiously confident — how sure are you that Parenthood will be back for a third season? —Kellen
I’m at about an 8, aka cautiously very confident and optimistic. I hear new NBC prez Bob Greenblatt is a huge fan of the show and desperately wants it to succeed, which pretty much makes him my new best friend.

Question: If the answer to last week’s Smallville asterisk quiz is Martha Kent that’s l*me. We all know she’s returning. —Jesse
It is not, I repeat not, Martha Kent. I agree, that would’ve been la*e.

Question: Josh Schwartz keeps warning fans on Twitter not to miss the “last 10 minutes of next week’s Chuck” and I’m start to get worried. Please put my mind at ease. —Chris
Would it help if I had Schwartz offer up a one-word description of the episode’s much-buzzed-about final act? No? Too bad. I already asked him. And the word is… Goosebumps! Last one to post a theory in the comments section has to buy me a Snapple six-pack.

Question: More Ashley Fink on Glee, please! Any idea what her first big solo is? —Rose
A major clue can be found in the video player below!

Loading video...

Question: What’s coming up with Teddy on 90210? —J Spigner
Just a Feb. 21 field trip to a local gay bar with Dixon. And Liam. And Navid.

Question: Can you give me info on The Cape — preferably something juicy? —Hector
Things could get a bit circus freaky for Vince when Raia (played by Izabella Miko) grows ever curious about just what lies beneath his cape. “She has a very strong crush on Vince — and there are plans to have that crush tilt into obsession,” series creator Tom Wheeler told TVLine’s Matt Mitovich. “We have big plans for Raia.”

Question: Any Good Wife scoop? —Marissa
Kalinda isn’t the only female character hiding a deep, dark and potentially career-ending secret. Yeah, you heard me.

Question: Where on Earth did Kitty go on Brothers & Sisters? Is Calista thinking of leaving the show? —Gus
Flash back to Jan. 26, 2010: Then-Entertainment Weekly staffer Michael Ausiello reports that Calista Flockhart will work a reduced schedule during Season 5. Cut to one week ago: Gus submits a question to Ask Ausiello inquiring about Calista Flockhart’s temporary leave-of-absence. Cut to present day: Michael Ausiello throws up his hands and screams, “I give up.”

Question: I haven’t heard any scoop on Modern Family in the longest time! You’ve got to know something! —Junior
Lilly’s second birthday brings Shelley Long’s demarbled matriarch back to town. “I invite DeDe to come stay with us, and of course hilarity — and disaster — ensues,” Jesse Tyler Ferguson tells Mitovich. “She actually brings back with her Claire’s old boyfriend from high school (played by Matt Dillon)” — now DeDe’s boy toy! “She’s trying to turn a corner and remain a little more stable, but within the 22 minutes of our sitcom you will watch her crumble.”

Question: How about a Supernatural spoiler? —Kriya
The Grim Reaper will set his sights on two recurring characters in the not-too-distant future.

That’s a wrap! Please send questions, comments, and anonymous tips to Also, you can keep track of my scoops on Twitter via @MichaelAusiello. Thanks for playing!

    • I was thinking it might be Wendy Scott-Carr and she has to drop out of the race, leaving it to Peter and Childs to duke it out. With Peter as the victor and thus season 3 is set up with Alicia having to deal with the repercussions of being a defense attorney with a husband as the states attorney and the boss of her opponents.

    • I’m guessing it’s the baby’s birth — which could lead to a big moment between Chuck and Sarah. After all, it looks like he’s had enough of Volkeoff and goes ‘Return of the Jedi’ on him.

    • I’m not. Clip episodes are boring and done because they are super cheap. That means there must be a HUGE episode that went way over-budget coming our way. THAT is the episode I’m looking forward to.

  • Yay! Thanks for the CM scoop! I hate to see Paget go, but no news is definitely good news on the Gubler front.

    Comment by Brandi – January 25, 2011 06:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’m still upset that they let A.J. Cook go and now Paget Brewster. Off course she has been criminally underused but to give them both the boot only to bring in that terrible actress who played in the final year of Alias is a huge insult. Not just to the viewers but to the other actresses themselves. Of course the show wouldn’t dare get rid of a male character. What a bunch of sexists.

  • Are u kidding me, dude.
    We want any good news and you say MAYBE related to Huddy?!
    you gonna kill me! =Pp

    But, at least, we have something new.

    Comment by bruna cora – January 25, 2011 06:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • tell me about it! Well lets think:

      Chase is recently divorced, I doubt it will be him because he wouldn’t remarry Cameron (JM is not returning this season) and hes been dating too many girls to be serious about marrying one. Plus, he already had a wedding on screen.

      Taub: Recently divorced as well. I suppose he could remarry his wife, but in the amount of time the divorce wouldn’t be finalized yet, so another wedding wouldn’t be necessary unless it symbolic

      Foreman: Unless he has a secret girlfriend somewhere or for some reason decided to marry 13 even though they broke up and are friends

      Thirteen: More likely. She has been gone for a long time so could be in a relationship we don’t know about and Shore said they had a cool episode revolving around her return. But would they introduce a new character/actor for this purpose?

      Wilson: He’s already been married 3 times and Sam just left him. Unless Sam comes back or he marrys someone after knowing them just a short time its unlikely (although I think I would like seeing House as his best man)

      House and Cuddy: Ok well we all know Ausiello is just saying it could be Huddy to excite us but they are in a long term relationship and House has started bonding with her kid. Plus the wedding episode earlier this season and the mention of marriage by Cuddy’s mom could be seen as clues! I know this is wishful thinking but hey…we can dream can’t we?

      Comment by Janine – January 25, 2011 08:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Thanks, Mike for the HOUSE spoiler. I really don’t believe it’s House/Cuddy. In fact, of all the possibilities on the show, they’re last on my list. I think it’s Wilson too.

        Comment by Hallie – January 26, 2011 12:02 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • i think its going to be a twist. not huddy. wilsam?

        Comment by my guess is.. – January 26, 2011 12:41 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I think it may be Amber Tamblyn. I heard she wasn’t going to be on the show long.? maybe Taub is goin to re-do his vows?

          Comment by Carol Grifith – January 26, 2011 12:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • If someone is getting married on the show I hope it’s someone people actually care about getting married. How many people will bat an eyelash at Taub renewing his vows or Martha getting married? No one.

            -It could be Foreteen but everyone hated them when they were together so getting them married most people wouldn’t care about either.

            -Chase could get married which would be more interesting but not eye raising worthy. Even though he is a player this year I think that’s possible. He seems like the settling down type to me.

            -So does Wilson who desperately wanted to marry Sam earlier in the season. And it seems like he might be the one most likely and people would definitely care about it.

            -House and Cuddy would be the most surprising but I don’t see either of them as the marriage type.

            I think what’s going on here is that it’s Wilson but since the columnists know the possibility of a Huddy marriage gets them a lot of hits they play with the idea and have been doing so for some time this season. I think they’ll have Wilson getting married near the end of the season.

            Comment by Olivia – January 26, 2011 07:20 PM PDT  
      • I don’t think it’s House & Cuddy too. I’d vote for Wilson & Sam. But maybe it’s going to be Cuddy’s sister. Why would they bring her!? There are no scoops about the storyline involving her.

        Comment by belbelbel – January 26, 2011 12:56 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • That is what I think also. Either Wilson and Sam or Wilson and Lucinda.

          Comment by Michaela – January 27, 2011 01:19 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • In the episode the week before last Cuddy’s mother mentioned that Cuddy needed to settle down like her sister. I’m assuming that means Lucinda is already married. So I think Wilson marries Sam.

          Comment by Carrie – January 27, 2011 12:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • The only way Chase would marry now is if he got really drunk and went to Vegas.
        Taub is NOT divorced. They just barely separated so the divorce will not be final for quite a while.
        House is not marrying Cuddy – that would be too weird and out of character.
        That only leaves WIlson – who is a serial husband (the return of Sam?) or Foreman and 13.

        Comment by Rowan – January 26, 2011 03:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I would have not seen a Wilson marriage coming up until Yataines(?) tweet response the other night. So now I think it is him and maybe Sam like people are saying here. Second choice is Chase getting married.

          Comment by Nevaeh – January 27, 2011 09:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I love Huddy. I think the history that they have between them makes them totally cool. And they’re so weird and dark but they get each other. But I don’t think it’s them.

        Comment by Cassidy – January 26, 2011 08:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I really don’t think it’s Huddy. I’m thinking it might be Wilson and someone. I’m going off of this from Greg Yaitanes’ tweet last night to someone and the fact that I can’t ever see House and Cuddy marrying and even if they do marry (ha!) it’s just going to end horribly. I’m getting that from the big man himself, David Shore’s latest interview concerning them.

      Comment by Diana – January 25, 2011 11:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Either Thirteen’s gonna bring back a guy, Taub’s gonna get re-re-married, or it’s Huddy.

        Comment by Josh – January 26, 2011 12:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I think the House wedding is with Wilson and Sam. Or Taub and Rachel renewing their vows. The second one is ultra boring so I hope it is the first.

          Comment by Leah – January 26, 2011 05:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I believe Wilson is the one getting married.

          Comment by Meghan – January 27, 2011 12:57 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • It’s Cuddy not Huddy

  • Wow I can’t wait for next weeks Chuck.

    I’m gona call it now, since they prob planned next weeks ep (13) as a possible series finale incase they didn’t get full pick-up, I’d guess we will see Sarah and Chuck marry?
    OR maybe they changed it since pick-up and casey dies instead? (Nnooo)
    OOR Sarahs pregnant?! lol

      Comment by renee – January 25, 2011 07:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • YES. A shrink, finally. The team needs to seriously deal with their traumatic situations. Seeing that many dead bodies, blood, dead co-workers, and torture must have seriously impacted them emotionally. A therapist will be good for them, especially Ziva after her time in the desert. Shane Brennan only knows what happened there…

    Comment by NCIS Fan – January 25, 2011 06:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I really hope we don’t have another Ziva angst fest. I’m far more interested in the state of Tony’s mind than yet moreE on Ziva who has dominated the show far too much for the past 2 seasons. I couldn’t actually care less what happened to her in Somalia. That entire plot arc was badly done, and half the fanbase hates Ziva now as a result of it.

      Comment by AlexM – January 26, 2011 07:05 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Same here. I’m looking forward to getting a peek into what’s going on inside Tony’s head but have absolutely no interest in the angst-fest that is Ziva -or- her 4 months in Somalia without her hairbrush.

        Comment by Sammy – January 26, 2011 08:16 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Ditto or thritto? I actually like ziva but not interested in any if her angst. I seriously want a big Tony dose on this ep considering he’s the longest serving agent under Gibbs.

          Comment by Erin – January 26, 2011 12:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • I actually enjoy Ziva. What I don’t want to see is an episode devoted to Tony, a man who’s pushing 40 but still acts like an immature 13 year old. Enough of that. It’s embarrasing and tiresome.

        • After Michael’s run-in with David Brent last night where they talked about job openings at D-M/Sabre, I could really see Ricky Gervais joining in. He’s an executive producer anyway (I think), and really little other chance to carry the show on without someone like him. I would be happy with Gabe. He’s nice but completely ineffectual. But I dont think it would be enough for ratings.

          So I’m going with Gervais. It would fit with Ausiello’s hint.

  • I really have no idea what to expect for the Chuck ending. I hope they don’t kill off Volkoff. Eliminating the possibility that Dalton will return would be a horrible idea. As to what will happen, I have no clue. In the promo Volkoff said he has access to everyone. I hope Baby Awesome is okay…

    • Me too. Of all the horrible storylines they’ve done on Grey’s this is one of the worst and the most cliched. And I really, really, really don’t want to see Lexie/Mark/Callie/Arizona trying to four-way co-parent a baby. Nightmare.

    • I’m so sad to hear this!!!!!! So Prentiss is really leaving the show??? I know there were rumors, but I was hoping it was not true… Also, the story line looks like Prentiss is getting killed off!?!?! Really? Cut Hotch some slack and give him some happy ending story!

    • First JJ was written off for no apparent reason, and now they are apparently going to do it to Prentiss as well.
      I’ll await the outcome of those episodes to see if the “Criminal Minds” PTB are really that stupid, but if they are, I’m officially done with “Criminal Minds”.
      Prentiss is not my favourite (even though her already impressive coolness level sky rocketed with the “Ma’a,” in the 100th episode), but it’s a principle thing….. :(

  • That Grey’s news is what I was afraid of. Having an unwanted and unplanned baby before reuniting is not what I wanted for Mark/Lexie and Callie/Arizona. If they’re to be together all four of them are going to end up co-parenting? So essentially there will be no more interesting storylines there ever? Only baby ones. My television nightmare on a show about professionals in a workplace.

      • That’s what happens in the books, but word is they’re going to go a different way with the show so that it will be a surprise.

      • I haven’t read the books. I did read that same thing (about what happens in the books), but also, like mooshki, read that they are not necessarily going that way in the show.

        I still want some scoop, though.

  • Well, for the Smallville character returning, I’m trying to figure it out by the number of asterisks, haha. And all I’m getting is Carter Hall (but that won’t happen for obvious reasons…so effing sad!) and Milton Fine (hey, a girl can hope). So I don’t know.

  • And is it certain that Paget is leaving Criminal Minds? Last time I checked, they were still unsure and hoping she’d stay. I really hope she does. There should be a GOOD female lead (NOT Rachel Nichols!).

    Comment by Casey – January 25, 2011 07:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • From most of the reports I’ve read, seems that Paget is definitely leaving CM; but she was supposed to leave right after AJ Cook/JJ…then CBS teased us by keeping her longer…with the extra tease of ‘maybe another renewal’. THEN they added insult to injury by bringing in a new female lead(gag me!) with Rachel Nichols…who has yet to bring any zing to the show. Why the PTB couldn’t have just left CM alone, I’ll never understand….and I’m not feeling a lot of love the new spinoff. Couldn’t they just bring back JJ???

  • Regarding Chuck:
    My guess is that Sarah kills Mary Bartkowski.
    Slight variation: Or Mary takes a bullet for Chuck.
    Either way, I think Mama Bartkowski ain’t makin’ it out of next week’s episode alive.

  • And one more thing (last one, I swear, haha), about Supernatural, I’m dreading who the characters will be. I’m hoping Grandpa is one of them. That would make me happy. Other than that, I might be sad. Just as long as it isn’t Bobby, I’ll be alright.

    Comment by Casey – January 25, 2011 07:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

  • Concerning Criminal Minds : so, they are not going to address Reid’s medical issues again ? I thought episode 16 (named ‘Coda’) was supposed to be a Reid episode written by Rick Dunkle (that’s what Rick Dunkle said on twitter). I hoped there would be a follow up and a logical explanation regarding Reid’s headaches…I hope the doctor Reid saw was wrong and that they will find something physically wrong with Reid in a later episode.

    I also hope P. Brewster won’t leave the show (I don’t want Prentiss tp leave or worse, to die).

  • On Supernatural — does the show still have recurring characters? Let’s see: Dean, Sam, Bobby are regulars; recurring would be Grandpa Samuel, Lisa, Ben? I guess Meg too, but she is already dead, no? So I’m guessing Lisa and Ben.

    On the other hand, on this show, Death setting his sights on them means neither that he actually reaps them nor that they remain dead.

    Are they ever going to pick up the loose thread of the half-human/half-demon child?

  • Maybe no one will take Michael Scott’s place. Maybe it will just be the boss being from the higher ups not actually a day to day kind of person. In all reality Michael Scott doesn’t make a lot of decisions that anyone in Sabre couldn’t make. So maybe no one replaces him, because in reality who could replace Michael Scott or Steve Carrell.

    • Given how many people hate the Huddy storyline, I’d say a marrying House and Cuddy is a deathwish for the show.

      Comment by Pat – January 25, 2011 09:03 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Actually I’d disagree with you there. 1. That Huddy is universally hated (because it isn’t, a quick glance at this site will tell you that) and 2. That a Huddy marriage would be a death knell for the show. I’m with Hugh Laurie on this one it’s not so much what is done but how it’s done. We’re talking David Shore here. If that were what is happening, which I don’t think it is, it would uniquely [H]ousian and not your typical picket fence scenario.

    • You’re always great with the [H]ouse spoilers and the Huddy spoilers. But I really doubt it’s Huddy. You reported another break up besides Huddy earlier and after DS talking about breaking them up I’m thinking this is just something that makes your mind go to Huddy because they’re the last couple standing atm. But it’ll be someone else. I’m thinking Wilson and mystery woman or Foreteen.

      One good thing you did give us is a nice laugh at the Huddy haters’ responses at the thought of them marrying. It won’t happen, but it’s funny seeing their outrage at the thought of it.

  • I really take exception to couching the Huddy spoiler as if all fans of House swoon over news about this twosome. One fan’s wedding bells is another fan’s death knell. Unless you have good news about Wilson, I’m offering my condolences. Worst. Season. Ever.

    Comment by Bored – January 25, 2011 09:09 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • MTE. I need some reassurance that this show is not focusing just on a relationship throughout this season. DUDES. YOU’RE RUINING IT. Also I don’t think it’ll get past Season 7, and if it ends with a Huddy Wedding then the best show ever has just been reduced to one relationship, which has only made people turn away. Not make people return to watch it.

      I don’t even think House/Cuddy fans want this, do they?

      Comment by Betty Draper – January 26, 2011 12:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I’m a hardcore Huddy fan….but a Huddy marriage does not make me excited. Perhaps EVENTUALLY, but definitely not now or anytime soon. I also don’t like how they are the last couple standing. It really showcases their ‘togetherness’ and that is something that is distinctly non-Huddy.

        Comment by Raisin – January 26, 2011 01:42 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I’m a Huddy fan too and I have mixed feelings about a marriage. I had always imagined them doing the on-again, off-again thing because there is so much chemistry between the two characters you’d think it’d flare up once they dared to go there finally this time even if they did break it off. But now we know that won’t be the case.

        If they get married it would be all about how they did it. I don’t need a marriage and I don’t think they would need one either. But if they went there I’d hope they’d make it Houseian and worthy of the two while still being in character. The reason I ship these two is because they’re unconventional. I can’t get what they have exactly anywhere else.
