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. Roni says:

    I hope the wedding either happens on Smallville or Greys. On Smallville I hope its either Clark and Lois or Chloe and Oliver. Since its the last season it would be awesome to see a Clois wedding since they are destined to be together and how long the writers not only dragged out them getting together and her finding out his secret. On Greys I hope its Calzone or Mark and Lexie

  2. Jake says:

    NO no to malex … that’s gross. That scoop was a low blow ausellio…mikita all the way. Im intrigued by the chlollie stuff at least. :) look forward to Chloe’s return!

  3. bob says:

    I know one thing the EP of smallville better do some good PR because if they get chollie hitched before clois alot and i mean alot of clois fans are going to think there ship is not going to get a wedding.they will think all the hints you been droping is for chlollie.i mean we know clois arn’t hitched by eps 18 if they read spolers like i do they mought start to think a mindwipe is coming is the reason you want get them hitched.i could here the backlash now.

  4. Juliette says:

    Rachel will be getting some action and it’s not with Finn or Puck ? Can it be with Finn AND Puck ?

  5. Mary says:

    Michae and Alex, if it’s true I’ll love it but If it’s a joke, then it’s not nice at all I didn’t hope for so much yet before

  6. Thom says:

    One man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure or so they say….for a price LOL

  7. jack says:

    lois and clark arn’t get’n merried on smallville not with conner kent coming to town he will make clark and tess get closser and now chole and oliver mought get merried and kara kent is coming and zod is coming i just don’t see a whole alot of room for a wedding.the EP of smallville just hate the lois lane of smallville they allways have and i don’t see it changing.

  8. Joana says:

    Michael & Alex?????????????
    If it’s true I gonna love it!

  9. Jaime says:

    I look forward to seeing how much Mike’s swag goes for. As someone who works in radio, I have a bunch of that swag too. Maybe I should consider selling my official Luke’s Diner baseball cap or the Stars Hollow Firefly festival Tshirt I have. I’d be happy to donate to charity too. Are people really interested in this stuff?

  10. RCRC says:

    Michael & Alex are not gross. Only Michael/Nikita fans think that way.
    I cross my fingers wishing that it’ll be true!
    The actor that plays Nathan is almost 36 years old. He’s older than Shane West. And people dont found it’s gross?

    HOPE YOU’RE RIGHT Ausiello, I’m tired of the same old story.
    Let Nikita be with owen or Ryan. And made my heart happy with Michael and Alex together!

  11. Alyssa says:

    I can see it being Chuck&Blair on Gossip Girl because the twist could be the fact that it’s totally and completely random after putting the characters apart and it would be just like an OMFG. Plus I remember a spoiler from earlier in the year about GG approaching a wedding designer about using something in an episode and not to mention Penn (Dan) added that GG would be adding another marriage to the mix this year. I really hope it’s them. Maybe then I can start watching the show again.:]
    Please Ausiello let us know soon.

  12. Cy says:

    NOOOOOOO!! Michael is Nikita’s! What a horrible strain it would put on Alex and Nikita’s super-tight relationship if Alex got with Michael. @_@;;;; And… I just couldn’t see it. Michael is pathetically, hopelessly in love with Nikita… or at least, he was until she foiled his revenge plans a few eps back. =\ I wish they’d address that and have him back to making lovesick puppy faces whenever Nikita’s name is mentioned (and Percy’s not looking).

  13. AngelMoonGirl says:

    I might just die of suspense before the Feb 10th episode of Bones XD Isn’t it awful knowing Booth is going to go one of two ways with Hannah- proposal or break up- and yet NOT know which one? One says he loves Hannah… the other says he loves Brennan…

    Since Hannah will be gone soon, let’s hope Booth breaks it up and it wasn’t that he proposed and she said no, because that would mean lots of Booth angsting over Hannah’s rejection (ugh) when it would make more sense story-wise for him to end the relationship for Brennan, now knowing she wanted a chance with him…

  14. Alicia says:

    Blind Item: Total only makes sense in terms of Smallville or Grey’s. I really want it to be on Grey’s (Calzona), but I would be okay with a Chlollie wedding!I’m just wondering who Rachel is going to be with season on Glee if it isn’t Finn or Puck? Please don’t leave me hanging on that one!

  15. Larry says:

    When will we find out how to purchase the cool stuff? I’m excited!

  16. Deeds says:

    Get it Rachel!!!!!! So sick of Finn and Puck yoyo-ing with her. As long as it isn’t Jesse, I’m good with it. Hoping Finchel is the end game, but in the meantime, unless Finn wakes up, get it, rach!

  17. Lauren says:

    I’m guessing Adrianna “switches out her happy pills” on 90210

  18. Ella says:

    Oh yes, you made my evening with these scoops…..Bones especially, but also “Chuck” (I love me some Chuck) and “Outsourced”. YES!!!!

  19. Clana says:

    MIKITA MIKITA MIKITA FTW.!! MALEX=YUCKYYY.!!Auseiloo you Bitch.!!One thing Malex fans will never realise coz they are so stupid is that Thad is playing a 25 year old…we are talking about the characters not the actors real ages.. I repeat again the characters..Alex is 19..Michael is 35..that means when Michael lost his daugther and wife 8 years ago..Alex was 11..yeah yeah she would have probabaly been playing pebbles with Michaels daughter..and not to mention she is a sex slave so if they go that road it will be as if Micheal is doing his..you know.God i cant even say it coz it is so damn sick.Auseillo your guts are so pervy..throw them in the effing ocean.!!

  20. tsss says:

    LOL Mikita vs Malex fan wars, see what you started Ausiello.

    by the way, just an observation, why do Malex fans in general have very poor grammar?? It’s very consistent. is this a requirement to be a Malex fan? lol. It’s true. Don’t say it isn’t. I’m just stating a fact cos I’ve always wondered if the Malex “fanbase” consisted of one very aggressive fan who posts as other people. I dunno, Just one of my theories. Cos who in the world would ever choose Malex over Mikita?? Please. MIKITA all the way!

  21. Mary says:

    lolll Mikita’s fans (Michael & Nikita) …they are so angry with you Ausiello. We Michael / Alex fans understand why.
    Funny how they admit that their shipper has to be on top.
    Mikita fans say that Malex fans are aggressive. When we talk about age and about some flaws about Nikita. But when take the rug under their feet they almost kill anyone who dares to post spoilers that are not in their favor.
    I’M MALEX FAN,but I think this time you are wrong Ausiello. This time will be Alex/Nathan (saddly). Although I find unfortunate, they go have sex barely knowing each other. This still think worse than the age difference…although on age, Thad does not look like Nathan was 25, he seems to be the age of Michael.
    I root plows that Ausiello was right in what he says. But I suspect that he’s wrong this time.

  22. jack says:

    hay aus way don’t you give some clois stuff next week last time i looked they are the one’s that have last’d 70 years not chollie.they better not get them married before clois or i wan’t buy the dvd set after it is all over.

  23. Sunny says:

    So, the “good” spoiler Ausiello has for Dean is a minor b-plot that came out more than a month ago. This does not inspire confidence for the rest of the season.

  24. vanessa says:

    Awesome Chuck scoop! It’s nice to know the Greta stuff will have a pay-off.

  25. Gavin says:

    Hmmmm. Booth will have a very emotional scene Feb 10, Hannah will be leaving before the end of the season, and there’s a sniper loose in DC that has a grudge with Booth. One could connect these dots into something.

  26. robert says:

    OMG. . . So who is comig to Smallville, stp the teasing man, your killing us Smallville Fans!!!

  27. carlos says:

    am a fan of Grey’s Anatomy but I think is getting too repetitive firing has almost every season. had had in the second season and now has 6temporada dinovo in season 7 that punch. either new to gray’s a surprise deverdade george o’malley serving in iraq is alive and that’s what a big surprise. recognition of it was wrong. as a person who was dragged by a bus for several blocks west and was bruised and disfigured may have been recognized by a sign or a mackerel that arm was a mess. out would cause a great upheaval and transformation in grece Seattle hospital. the T.R. knight come back and bring back the sweetness and goodness sues refleten love beautiful eyes.

  28. Kelly says:

    I thought the “mind-wipe” thing was only a rumour??!! Personally I’ll feel VERY, VERY let-down if they do that cause I actually like Clark & Lois together and you can see how much they love eachother so if Clark wiped her mind, I’d have 2 assume it would be torture on him havin 2 see her EVERYDAY & remember how much he loves her even though she doesn’t remember how much she loves him :s I think they should leave it be & NOT wipe her memory, end tha show on a good note NOT a crappy one!!

    Oh and tha Blind Item is Conner Kent :D
