Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on Glee, Bones, Grey's Anatomy Desperate Housewives, 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: Is there any truth to the rumor that Booth will be breaking up with Hannah in the Feb. 10 episode of Bones? Or is it possible that they might get engaged? Please tell me anything to calm my nerves before I die from anxiety! —Bee
I’m not commenting on what specifically goes down in the Feb. 10 episode, but I will say this: It’s my understanding that Katheryn Winnick will be making her final appearance as Hannah within the next two months. I give you permission to shoot the messenger a nice email of appreciation at askausiello@tvline.com. (BTW, I hear the Feb. 10 episode is absolutely stellar.)

Question: Any Glee scoop involving Rachel’s love life? —Alyson
An unconfirmed rumor suggests that Lea Michele’s suddenly single alter ego will be getting some action soon. The twist? It won’t be with Finn or Puck.

Question: Any scoop about Calzona in this week’s Grey’s Anatomy? —Marija
Callie’s finally going to crack! That’s the word from costar Kevin McKidd, who directed Thursday’s episode. “[The scenes are] dramatic and quite light,” he told TVLine’s Matt Mitovich. “Basically it’s Callie’s moment to have kind of a meltdown. She hopes that Mark and Arizona can work together and she hopes that they can both be in her life, but she’s anxious. She has all these hormones flying around inside her, like pregnant women do, so she ends up driving her OB doctor [played by Rachael Taylor] to distraction, with very funny but also touching results.”

Question: Any Grey’s Anatomy spoilers on Owen and Cristina — or just Cristina? —Stephanie
According to McKidd, Cristina’s back to “her old scrappy self” this week. “She’s doing anything to trample anyone in her way to get into the OR and cut and get blood on her hands,” he adds. “It’s fun to see her back to her old tricks!” Amen, brother.

Question: Rumor has it (OK, I read it on your Facebook page) that this week’s Ask Ausiello will include a little somethin’-somethin’ special for Firefly fans. Spill it, Aus! —Craig
Did I say fans of Firefly? Sorry, I meant fans of Firefly, Gilmore Girls, Tru Calling, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica and approximately 201,735 other TV shows you love or loved. “What the… ?!” you ask. Allow me to answer: Gosh, I can’t believe I’m actually saying this, but I have come to a life-changing decision: I’m parting ways with my swag. All the cool stuff – well almost all – I’ve accumulated over my decade-plus career is about to find a new home — yours. How? On Thursday, more than 30 of my most prized possessions will hit the eBay auction block with 100 percent of the proceeds going to my favorite charity, the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. Lest you think I’ll be giving away ‘Til Death erasers and The Swan mirrors, let me tell you — the auction will feature some pieces that are so unbelievably awesome, I’m starting to regret this whole thing as I write this. Among the goodies (greaties?): a jumbo-sized Firefly press kit contained in its own giant gray crate (see photo, right) that Fox sent to critics nine years ago to promote the show’s premiere. Read my lips… er, key strokes: This thing has never been opened! Even I don’t know what the hell is inside! Also up for sale: That breathtaking limited edition, framed Battlestar Galactica Last Supper artwork, actual stationery from the Gilmore Girls‘ Dragonfly Inn set, priceless Buffy swag (see photo, below) and so much more that it’s likely to reduce one of us to tears. (My bet is it’ll be me.) The auction goes live in less than 48 hours, and direct links will be posted on Twitter and Facebook. I’ll also be previewing additional items (wait until you see the Simpsons and Tru Calling pieces) on my Facebook page before then. Unless I change my mind. Which is a definite possibility.

Question: Got anything on Cougar Town to ease the pain of the impending 10-week hiatus? — Richard
Yes! Rita Moreno is joining the show! Well, OK, maybe she isn’t, but tell me when you read the following description of Andy’s mom — who, coincidentally, is currently being cast — she isn’t exactly who you think of. The character in question is a 60-to-70ish Latina (duh) with a personality that’s strong enough to bust daughter-in-law Ellie’s chops and live to tell the tale. Rita Moreno, right? That’s what I thought!

Question: I’ve been going crazy with your Smallville Blind Item and finally have a guess that I haven’t seen here on any other sites: Saturn Girl! Am I right? Mejia
Nope. The answer is ****** K***.

Question: Do you have any more scoop on Chloe and Oliver’s big Smallville moment that you teased about a few weeks back? Is this something fans of the couple will be happy with? Please, you have us dying with anticipation. Any little clue would be appreciated. —Silvia
Too good to spoil. Sorry.

Question: Anything on Desperate Housewives? Will Susan find a donor before she croaks? —Isabel
I can confirm that Susan will in fact find a match. And in quite possibly related news, a recurring Housewives character is headed six feet under.

Question: Any Tyra/Landry scenes in final two Friday Night Lights episodes? —Katie
I can’t bring myself to watch them (maybe this weekend if I can get up the courage), so I threw your question to an FNL insider who has seen the final two eps.  Their response? “Unfortunately, no Tyra/Landy scenes.”  I’m told Landry does, however, have a nice scene with BFF Matt, so there’s that to look forward to. Overall, FNL‘s final season is more than living up to my high expectations. Last week’s episode — particularly the ending — just wrecked me. I won’t spoil it for those without DirecTV except to say it takes place after a big game.

SPECIAL AA BLIND ITEM: A popular couple on a show you’re nuts about will tie the knot during February sweeps — but there’s a twist, and I’m not telling you what it is. I will, however, reveal that the show in question is Grey’s Anatomy. Or Smallville. Or Gossip Girl. Or Bones. Or Glee. One of those five. Hit the comments with your theories!

Question: Anything on How I Met Your Mother? —Christopher
You already know that John Lithgow is playing Barney’s estranged dad, Jerry. But what you don’t know is that Nancy Travis has been tapped to play his wife (and thus Barney’s stepmom)!

Question: Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find a good Supernatural spoiler on Dean. —Kristen
I accept! I accept! Little Ben will attempt to get Dean and Lisa back together using the oldest trick in the book: The bogus emergency!

Question: Now that Greg Grunberg has signed on for that A&E pilot, inquiring minds must know: What exactly is happening with Love Bites? The trailer looked so promising, and I really missed seeing Becki Newton on TV regularly. — Jeff H.
I originally heard NBC was going to burn off the abbreviated first season in the dead of summer. But now the buzz is the once-promising dramedy may never see the light of day. This probably explains why Newton is being flooded with pilot offers as we speak.

Question: Do you have any scoop on Criminal Minds? —Diana
That much-talked-about Glee/Minds crossover (in the loosest sense of the word) is happening! Sources confirm to me exclusively that Finn’s mom (a.k.a. actress Romy Rosemont) is guest-starring in Minds‘ Feb 23 episode as the estranged Aunt of an autistic boy whose parents have gone missing. Bonus spoiler: Thomas Gibson’s Dharma & Greg mother-in-law, Mimi Kennedy, is playing the kid’s mom. Oh, and A.J. Cook’s returning to help send off costar Paget Brewster.

Question: How about a Mentalist scoop? Anything about the Rigsby/Van Pelt/O’Loughlin triangle?  —Michela
You don’t want to miss the Feb. 10 episode, during which “someone [proposes to] Van Pelt,” reveals EP Bruno Heller, “and Van Pelt says yes.”

Question: I don’t care what anyone says, I love me some Outsourced! Got any intel on the Todd-Tonya-Asha triangle? —Sue P
Let’s ask EP Robert Borden: “In an upcoming episode, we discover that Madhuri reads palms. When she reads Tonya’s palm, Madhuri predicts another woman will come between Todd and Tonya. Tonya immediately suspects Asha even though she is engaged.”

Question: As much as I would love the news that Community got renewed for a third season, I would be OK with just a spoiler right now. —Becca
Abed will serve as Dungeon Master in the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons-themed episode.

Question: House scoop? —Crystal
The POTW in Monday’s episode is none other than Cuddy’s mom (a.k.a. Candice Bergen). But that’s not the interesting part. This is the interesting part: Taub and Martha discover a skeleton (or two) in her closet when they canvas her home looking for medical clues, and one of ’em is pretty juicy. As the case evolves, House puts Cuddy in the worst possible position, compelling her to go along with one of his most extreme (read: crazy-unethical) plans ever. Meanwhile, facing divorce and hurting for cash, Taub considers a job offer from [spoiler alert].

Question: Can you give us some Michael/Nikita scoop? —Rachel
Would you settle for Michael/Alex instead? I have a gut feeling those two crazy kids will be hooking up soon, something Lyndsy Fonseca would neither confirm nor deny when TVLine’s Megan Masters caught up with her last week. “If something were to happen between Michael an Alex,” she mused, “I think it would take over a few episodes. They wouldn’t just make out.”

Question: I’m hungry for 90210 spoilers! —Michael
The Adrianna-Navid-Silver triangle is about to get ugly with a capital U-G. Rumor around the Peach Pit is that Adrianna finds out about Navid and Silver’s little, um, connection and the little minx retaliates by *w****ing *u* *e* ****y *****! Can you believe it?

Question: Any familiar faces returning to Chuck in these next 11 episodes? —Will
You already know that John Larroquette’s hasbeen spy Roan Montgomery is back next Monday. Beyond that, Mini Anden reappears as Sarah’s former spy chum Carina Miller in the Feb. 14 episode that reunites Sarah with her former A-Team. “They are a wild bunch to say the least,” previews exec producer Chris Fedak of the “Cat Squad,” which is comprised of Anden, Three Rivers‘ Mercedes Masöhn, and Episodes‘ Mircea Monroe. “It’s our homage to Charlie’s Angels.” And later this season, Isaiah Mustafa and Stacy Keibler will reprise their Greta personas in an episode Fedak says “will explain what the whole Greta thing is about.”

Question: Have we seen the last of Jack Coleman on The Office? —Rebecca
No ma’am we sure haven’t. “He’s coming back and Angela is the last one to [figure out he’s gay],” says Angela Kinsey with a laugh. “It’s fun because she’s very pious and loves being in this miniature limelight. It’s going to her head. We just read a script where the office is talking about public displays of affection, and Angela says ‘We don’t do anything,’ so it’s the perfect relationship for her.”

That’s a wrap! Please send questions, comments, and anonymous tips to askausiello@tvline.com. Also, you can keep track of my scoops on Twitter via @MichaelAusiello. Thanks for playing! (Additional reporting by Megan Masters and Andy Patrick)

  1. Steph [BONES] says:

    Wow. I’m freaking out MORE about Bones now. I was sure that Hannah was leaving in episode 13 and now I’m not so sure. WHY AUSIELLO…WHY?! Haven’t we suffered enough?!

    • skylark66 says:

      We have suffered more than enough with Hannah and rumor is that DB hits it out of the park with his acting on Feb 10 ep which would not happen if he was a happy camper so must be lots of angst and hoping she is on her way out of town permanently.

  2. mooshki says:

    Tyra spends the finale with Tim Riggins instead of Landry. There are a bunch of clips from the finale on YouTube if you want more spoilers.

  3. Jimena says:

    By this ****** K*** you mean “Conner Kent” and the couple who will tie the knot is Chloe and Oliver from Smallville!?

    Please, we need more SMALLVILLE scoop.

  4. Lindsey says:

    I hope to God Mark/Lexie aren’t getting married.

  5. Rob J. says:

    Meh, I don’t care that he ruled out Martha Kent. “****** K***” could refer to Cousin Kara, Martha Kent, Curtis Knox or, admittedly, Connor Kent.

    Ah, too bad it isn’t Kent Shakespeare.

  6. SnazzyO says:

    Awesome Smallville Scoop

    I think the wedding is during the Vegas trip: Clois or Chlollie

    IDK – lots to consider

    The asterisks quiz has me stumped. We thought Callum Blue. I don’t think it’s Kara, you don’t asterisks something already known.

    So.. Curtis Knox or Connor Kent (clone Lex being raised by AU Jonathon?)

  7. Tracy Murray says:

    Well , from the promos , I know Arlene Cuddy has been seeing a married man for five years and there are indications she is an alcoholic , so those aren’t really the secrets we’re supposed to hear about on next Monday’s episode of House , but I believe there is something shocking in the past that drove her to drink that could affect the lives of her daughters , especially Lisa , and that could be the real skeleton in her closet .

  8. c says:

    Michael and Alex? GROSS. With all the back story, I for sure thought Michael and Nikita were going to hook up eventually (but not too soon because the sexual tension is fun to watch!). If Michael and Alex hook up, I think I might just stop watching.

  9. bob says:

    the blind thing could be lois and clark he said it was a twist could they get married at the FOS.

  10. Sky says:

    wow, if you don’t have anything on Michael/Nikita – as that was the scoop requested, better not say anything at all. Way to go pissing off a fanbase AND showing you don’t know anything new.

    would’ve been better if you didn’t say anything at all. nothing “scoop-y” about what you just shared.

  11. Camile says:

    The only thing i can see about the blind item is Chuck and Blair getting married because they need to salve Chuck’s company or something like that. I can’t see other couple from the others shows getting married on february … just if it’s something like Chuck/Blair, and they need to get married to escape from something, or maybe they’ll get married in Vegas, so it’s up to anyone HAHAHAHA.

  12. skyfan says:

    Greta? You CAN’T have a Greta arc without Summer Glau!

  13. bobo says:

    Adriana will switch out her happy pills? So silver will become manic depressive again? Wow, low blow!

  14. bob says:

    I have got it lois and clark tie the not but twist is they tie the not with other peaple while they are all drunk lois with ollie and clark with chole ED did say in a interview that lois and chole get in to a mess in eps 15.

  15. amber says:

    DAMNIT. I really wanted to see Love Bites. Oh well, hopefully Becki gets a show that will actually air.

  16. miles silverberg says:

    For the DH blind item, Harriet Harris (Felicia Tillman) appeared in two episodes of Six Feet Under. Hmm…

  17. l says:

    That is what I waited the whole day for!!?
    I thought it’s something different about Gilmore girls…I thought it’s something that I am happy with, I can’t be a part of the auction..I’m not old enough to be a member of ebay and I don’t know anyone who’s on ebay… :-(

  18. blerrgg says:

    uhm, smallville: selina kyle.
    also, your house scoop wasn’t so much scoop as it was the press release.
    glad to hear about your charity auction though. that’s amazing, way to use your platform for good!

  19. sonya says:

    ahhh!! cant wait to meet barneys family on HIMYM!!…maybe this will change his mind on marriage… and maybe the mystery wedding is BRoTP!!!…cause that would be Awe…wait for it…some! Awesome! :)

  20. Sam says:

    “As the case evolves, House puts Cuddy in the worst possible position, compelling her to go along with one of his most extreme (read: crazy-unethical) plans ever.”
    Well, hopefully this puts an END to the insane, awful Huddy relationship. Seriously, get it over with already, there are tons of fans out there SICK OF IT, like it or not.

    • Liz says:

      I think they’re breaking up in epi 14 or 15. I’ve heard TPTB have wizened up, listened to the majority finally and are planning the ship’s demise.

  21. DarkEmy says:

    Oh, well that’s just great. Bringing A.J. Cook back just so they can send Paget away. Just great. Now tell me that reid’s getting less screen time and i’ll certainly stop watching…
    Tnx for the scoop though

  22. Kristy says:

    I really hope Chloe and Oliver will be endgame. Please tell me they will.

  23. Nat says:

    Crappy Supernatural spoiler is crappy. The show is about Dean and Sam. Kids and mothers don’t belong here. Let’s renew the show for 7th season and get rid of Lisa Ben and the entourage please.

    • Lexi says:

      I agree 100%. We gotta get back to how it was in seasons 1-3, hunting good ol’ fashioned monsters ! No dragons or fairies, please. Just simply Sam and Dean hunting some rugarus, ghosts and vamps!

  24. Constantine says:

    Thanks for the [H]ouse scoop, Mike. I’m chomping at the bit to see this episode. Also, episode thirteen, “Two Stories.” If you can get anything on that episode too it would be awesome.

  25. LOL says:

    Auseillo answer me this.!! Why are u so against Nikita.??????.First you said the show could “go either way” in one of your Crappy Predictable Charts although the ratings are higher than the crapfest you put as ‘sure things’ and if that wasn’t enough..when you were specifically asked a Q on MIKITA why dont you effing answer the effing Q.!!Dont go off the point.If you are smart you will learn from your mistakes..but who am i kidding?..You AND smart?LOL

    I am telling you Dude.. you ain’t making any fans here..your Gut feeling.. Oh PHULEZZZZZZZZ dont make me laugh..i dont know what i hate more now..you or your GUTS.!!

    And yeah that stupid scoop..we knew that ages ago..Lyndsay has been singing that tune since the TCA tour….and both Shane-Mags said that they were not in favour of it.!!


    Next time get your facts straight.!!

    BTW I never really liked you.!! You have always thought you are smarter than u usually are.!!

    • Deanna says:

      I’m so with you.!! That Mikita scoop was just disgusting,we dont want to know what “you” think Auseillo,we could care less really about your thoughts on the issue,just give us the facts on what the writers have in store for them if you have anything,which you obviously dont so better say nothing at all,dont project yourself as stupid to the world,tell us something new next time,and if it isn’t Mikita related shut your mouth.!!

  26. Nanyscia says:

    So disappointed that Love Bites won’t be after all. I was really looking forward it, it really looked fine to me. Umpf. Now, at least let’s hope Becki Newton finally finds a good new series and finally return on my tv, really missing her (But we all now that after all the truth is Ugly Betty shouldn’t EVER have been cancelled.)

  27. Bia says:

    Tell me you wrote it right…Is not Nathan/Alex????

    Cause if will REALLY BE….MICHAEL/ALEX I will be so so so HAPPY!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D

  28. fun says:

    the blind is bones the 10 of february he gives it away at the top of this story. and february sweeps are like the first 3 weeks of february not the last week of it so it wan’t be smallville eps 15 of smallville is the last week.

  29. Diana Keys says:

    I hope Michael and Alex ‘making out’ is true.
    Because I like Michael and Nikita in the old TV show, but in this new remake I LOVE MICHAEL & ALEX, even though some fans dontlike.
    kristin frim E!Online almost said it’s Nathan / Alex. I hope it’s you Ausiello, I hope you are right and not Kristin!

  30. Derek64 says:

    I sure hope Hannah will be gone in less than 2 months. Judging by the spoiler photos for episode 13, she’s gone after that.

  31. Mike says:

    I guess the Smallville Spoiler means Conner Kent – he’s a clone of Clark AND Lex. It will fit in with the whole clone storyarc of season 10. If it’s Conner Kent, I hope they will cast Robbie Amelle because he looks like Superboy.

    • bob says:

      wow now superboy it’s bad we got supergirl i can see now eps 19 will be callied superboy good goss when is the superman movie coming out i wan’t superman not some seconds rait super hero.smallvilles last season is to pimp every super hero superman who not on smallville.

  32. Kelly says:

    Oh man – they really need to stop teasing me with Bones – please tell me Booth isn’t going to marry that woman – I’ll need valium! Please confirm that Hannah’s really leaving!

  33. Lori says:

    Too good to spoil? omg I cannot wait….chlollie

  34. bob says:

    chlollie will tie the not but the twist is after they do she gets shot and is killed wich will stop clark from marring lois because he will think the same will happen to her.

  35. Raksha says:

    That was the worst Community scoop ever. Im disappointed

  36. bob says:

    if the chlollie spoler is to good to say i really don’t think he would put it in a blind thing the way he say’s to good means he won’t say wich means you will hav’t watch it live so i don’t think it is them geting married.

  37. Mike says:

    that michael&nikita scoop is so much fail. I am done with this show if michael&alex ever hook up…..both leads have expressed so much distaste for it so it wud disgust me on so many levels wit that…..no thank you ausellio. i hope ur gut feeling is 100% wrong.

  38. stelladoro says:

    That’s all there is for a scoop for Dean? Really, the lead doesn’t really have anything to do except take care of his brother and some sideline romance story or when he needs to get out of the way so that Sam can save the day. Becky Gamble really doesn’t have any use for Dean, does she. Too bad, because this season of Supernatural is truly boring.

  39. dref22 says:

    Jack Coleman, WOOT! I was hoping for that! This is very cool!

  40. Kacey says:

    Ok I’m seriously ecstatic that Hannah will be off my screen soon. She and Booth have 0 chemistry and she’s just boring. Booth and Bones need to just get on with it already.

    As for Grey’s, I’m glad that Cristina has her mojo back but I hope she doesn’t totally go back to pre PTSD Cristina, because otherwise what was the point of that very long storyline?

    As for Callie on Grey’s, she finally cracks and hopes Mark and Arizona can work together? If I rolled my eyes any harder, they would pop out of my head. Callie’s hormones may be driving her crazy, but this storyline is driving me crazy because it’s ridiculous and it sucks.

    I am curious to see who Rachel hooks up with on Glee though. I’ll be glad when new episodes are finally back.

  41. ana says:

    por favor poner fin a huddy es horrible no hay nada de quimica y va a terminar con house.Hugh Lauri es fantastico

  42. Kikacr says:

    Finally, the Afghan barbie leaves the show!!! THANK GOD!! I just hope that Booth is the one who breaks with her, the worst case scenario and HUGE MISTAKE would be Booth proposing and she reject him. That surely would kill my faith in Booth as a suitable love interest for Brennan.
    The writers almost kill the show with this Hannah stunt, I mean they made Booth look like a complete jerk, and the B&B chemistry were gone…
    I was ready to stop watching the show after episode 10 (The body in the bag), the only thing that save Bones for me, was the amazing gravedigger episode, and the spoilers about Hannah leaving the show. But, I am so drained and tired, that I just hope the writers could fix this mess really well. They did a huge damage to B&B relationship, if I were Bones, I surely be very careful with my feelings around Booth, I mean the trust is broken, they need to find a way to recover what they had.
    If Brennan was skeptical about love in the past, now, with Booth’s horrible behavior, he need to really try to regain her trust and her heart again.

  43. Maggie says:

    Blind item: what if booth and Brennan got married for an undercover thing. They haven’t gone undercover in ages. Just a guess

    • Jennifer says:

      That would be awesome! The undercover episodes are some of my favorites! When they joined the circus, or they pretended to be high-rollers in Vegas? Greatness!

  44. Carrie says:

    I love Candice Bergen as Cuddy´s mom. I hope she won´t be killed off. House is amazing this season.

  45. Stroopy says:

    What the freck is ‘*w****ing *u* *e* ****y *****!’ suppose to mean? :?
    Thanks for the spoilers anyway!

  46. Crystal1222 says:

    Wow…..I waited all week for that???? Only one of the shows I watch had a one liner scoop….:(

  47. Diana Keys says:

    Better be Michael and Alex [I love MALEX], but I’m scared if it’s not true. Kristin froM E!ONLINE said the same but on Nathan and Alex.[I didnt find chemistry]
    But my favorite is Michael an Alex.
    Please Ausiello say it’s TUE!

  48. Rmame says:

    I dont know if will be Michael & Alex (I would love it)
    but I think its Nathan & Alex (Though, Michael.Nikita shippers want for make Alex away, I don’t see chemistry)

    This would be my wish dream:
    MICHAEL AND ALEX<blockquote cite=""

    love them!

  49. bob says:

    i would say it’s conner kent since they are looking at alot of the first season they wan’t clark and lois to look like ma and pa kent to let them see what it would be like to raise a kid.

  50. Michael says:

    Hey Ausiello is there any chance in Bones that this new sniper arch will cause Booth to get another visit from his best friend’s ghost(Edward Parker/Teddy) to help him catch this sniper. I only ask because in his first actual appearance in the season 4 episode “The Hero in the Hold” at the very end he interacted and spoke with Brennan proving that he wasn’t apart of Booth’s brain tumor hallucinations, and in the season 5 finale Booth spent an awful lot of time looking at a picture of himself and Teddy. So it seems to me as though they really set the show up to bring back that character. Please fill me in on any info that you can get about Teddy because I would really love to see him again.
