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

Question: Please tell me Brennan doesn’t actually give birth in prison on Bones. —Sam
Ausiello: Brennan doesn’t actually give birth in prison on Bones. While an upcoming episode is set inside a jail, that is not where B&B will welcome their son/daughter into the world. A source tells me the setting of the delivery is “much better than that.”

Question: Do you have any scoop on The Walking Dead? I can’t wait anymore! —Manon
Ausiello: I don’t consider myself to be particularly squeamish, but there’s a scene in the Oct. 16 premiere that even I couldn’t (ahem) stomach. If you can manage to keep your eyes open the entire time, you’re made of stronger stuff than me. (First two episodes are aces, BTW. You will not be disappointed. The performances, particularly from Andrew Lincoln, Laurie Holden and Sarah Wayne Callies, will blow you away.)

Question: Do you have any Walking Dead scoop? —Christina
Ausiello: Exec producer Robert Kirkman confirms that “there will be a little bit of romance” between Steve Yuen’s Glenn and Lauren Cohan’s newcomer Maggie this season. And turns out, Glenn’s got some serious game. “He’s a good kisser,” confides Kirkman with a chuckle. “You’d think he might be awkward, [but he's] very smooth. Shockingly smooth.”

Question: Gossip Girl is my guilty pleasure, but since I’m 41, nobody outside my house should know I’m addicted to this teen show. (I have a reputation.) I want to know if you have some spoilers regarding Chuck and/or Blair. —Sylvie
Ausiello: Prince Louis’ meddling mother and sister will insist that Blair move to Monaco to give birth to the future heir inside her. They even draw up a contract containing all sorts of ridiculous custody clauses. What a bunch of royal pains.

Question: I have to admit, Gossip Girl‘s Charlie’s kind of growing on me. Any scoop? —Kris
Ausiello: Someone discovers the teen interloper’s big secret, and, without missing a beat, blackmails her!

Question: We just want to know if it is Blaine that Kurt loses his virginity to on Glee. You were vague in your story. Two seconds of your time would alleviate a lot of stress for people. —Matt
Ausiello: Yes, Kurt loses his virginity to Blaine. FYI: That actually required 45 seconds of my time. First I had to copy and past your question (three seconds), then I had to research and write out the answer (40 seconds), and, lastly, I had to format the text (two seconds). This job’s a lot harder than it looks. Something to keep in mind.

Question: Will there be a Glee Halloween episode this year?  —Katie
Ausiello: Negatory. The show goes on a three-week hiatus after this week’s episode, returning on Nov. 1 with the non-pumpkin themed “Pot O’ Gold.”

Question: I’m really loving Playboy Club. I’m so disappointed that more people aren’t watching. Any news on whether it’s gonna hang around for a while longer? —Becca
Ausiello: Um… this is awkward.

Question: I loved the premiere of Homeland on Showtime! Got any scoop for me? —Eric
Ausiello: There’s a death coming that, while not entirely surprising, still depressed the hell out of me. And if the chilling final shot of Episode 3 means what I think it means, the looming terror attack will involve *** *****l.

Supernatural‘s Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki Talk of Being Hunted, Dean’s Guilt and Moving On

Question: Is Supernatural planning any meta episodes this season? The season has been pretty dark so far. I need a pick-me-up. —Patty
Ausiello: I have a hunch the Nov. 18 episode, titled “Season 7, Time For a Wedding,” should quench your meta/humor thirst. (And before you ask, yes, one of the brothers is the groom.)

Question: Will Sam’s hallucinations and troubles with the collapsed wall in his head be a season-long journey on Supernatural? —Mark
Ausiello: “We don’t really plan for that to ever fully go away,” responds exec producer Sera Gamble. “In terms of that being a condition that Sam has, it’s just part of him now. By the end of last week’s episode, he had started to develop ways of coping with it. And the next step in that story is seeing how his attitude changes and how Dean is dealing with it and his worries about it. But what happened to Sam’s head is pretty permanent.”

Question: Any inside gossip on The Vampire Diaries? —Bridii
Ausiello: Rumor has it the Oct. 13 episode, “The Reckoning,” is going to be E-P-I-C. Basically, Klaus goes totally off the rails and no one is safe — especially not Elena, Stefan and Tyler.

Question: Any Vampire Diaries scoop concerning Caroline? —Jo
Ausiello: Dying to see Caroline kick Damon’s ass? Then this Thursday’s episode is for you!

Question: The preview for next week’s House makes it appear that Foreman is the new Dean of Medicine. Am I correct in that deduction? —Matt
Ausiello: Yes, I can confirm that the preview makes it appear that Foreman is the new Dean of Medicine.

Question: I’m hoping for some Law & Order: SVU scoop that doesn’t involve Stabler. I know, crazy. —Andrea
Ausiello: Not crazy. A little odd? Sure. But not crazy. Here’s some non-Stabler scoopage: This Wednesday’s episode is only loosely inspired by the Maria Shriver-Arnold Schwarzenegger kerfuffle. Paige Turco, who plays the “Maria” to Kyle MacLachlan’s “Arnold” says the episode is “a little more dramatic” than the headline it’s ripped from, adding, “There’s a murder in there, so it pushes the stakes very, very high for her and her husband.” Fun fact: Turco knew MacLachlan through real-life hubby Jason O’Mara’s 2006 series In Justice, and has been friends with Mariska Hargitay “for ever and ever, so it was like going home.”

Question: Do you have any info about when Joshua Jackson finally returns to Fringe? —Gage
Ausiello: As the haunting new promo below pretty much confirms, the second coming of Peter is imminent.

Question: Words cannot express how excited I am that True Blood‘s Kristin Bauer van Straten is playing Maleficient on Once Upon a Time. Any plot deets? —Cynthia
Ausiello: My crystal ball is showing me… a catfight of mythic proportions! “In our world, Maleficient is the Evil Queen’s oldest friend — and someone she wishes would just drop dead,” reveals exec producer Edward Kitsis. “That’s what happens when evil befriends evil.” Adds fellow EP Adam Horowtiz: “To go to toe to toe with our Evil Queen we needed an iconic character — which led us to introduce Maleficient. And as huge fans of Kristin’s we couldn’t imagine anyone better to come in and bring her to life.”

Question: Once Upon a Time scoop, please! —Meg
Ausiello: Later this season, Kitsis and Horowtiz will introduce another iconic diva — The Blind Witch from Hansel and Gretel! Now read the official character description and tell me if this doesn’t scream another True Blood alum: “She lives in a gingerbread house and likes to dine on small children. She’s incredibly scary and frightening. Although blind, she’s also intense, strong, and calculating — no pushover, even for a grown man. Rather than hunting her prey (children), she uses her gingerbread house to lure unsuspecting young wanderers to her, only springing into action once they’ve stepped squarely into her trap.” Um, hello — Michelle Forbes!

Question: I’d love some Big Bang Theory scoop! —Marissa
Ausiello: Howard’s about to get “a large promotion-type thing,” teases Simon Helberg. “It’s going to cause a big rift with Bernadette.” And that’s on top of the ongoing rift caused by Howard’s hilariously unhealthy relationship with his mother. “The fact that Mrs. Wolowitz actually likes Bernadette might cause more of a problem for him than [if he didn't],” previews Helberg’s TV bride-to-be, Melissa Rauch. “I’m definitely marrying Mrs. Wolowitz along with Mr. Wolowitz. I call it a Jewish sister wife situation.” Speaking of Rauch, she almost out-Mrs. Wolowitzed Mrs. Wolowitz at the end of last week’s episode. Easily one of the top five funniest moments of the TV season so far.

Question: The one time I requested some scoop and you didn’t respond, I swore to myself I wouldn’t bother again! But after your five very vague, and once again for emphasis, five words concerning The Secret Circle in last week’s Ask Ausiello, I am asking (scratch that – pleading) for something epic on the TSC. —Zee
Ausiello:  Kevin Williamson is looking for an African-American actor in his 20s to play Melissa’s smart, funny and great-looking cousin, Holden. “A difficult past has made him tough inside and out,” reads the official character description, “but he’s got a soft spot for Melissa.”

Question: Any chance of an Ade/Liam or Ade/Dixon romance on 90210? —Washelle
Ausiello: I’d say there’s a very good chance of the latter (hint-hint, nudge-nudge). Speaking of Adrianna, I hear she may pull a Quinn Fabray and second-guess her decision to give up her baby (especially after she finds out the adoptive parents are going through a divorce).

Question: OK, so I’m a huge fan of 90210, but these last two episodes have been kind of… zzzzzzz. Anything juicy coming up? —Chris
Ausiello: Look for Annie to pull a Pretty Woman and start dating one of her “Johns.”

Question: Scoop on The Good Wife — please and thank you! —Dee
Ausiello: If you thought the whole audit of Lockhart Gardner by the State’s Attorney’s office was messed up, you haven’t seen anything yet. In the coming weeks, Peter and his army of troublemakers will open up an investigation into Will’s shady past, and you won’t believe who gets assigned to the case.

Question: Any scoop on Raising Hope? —Dayvis
Ausiello: Charlie Sheen, call your agent. Raising Hope producers are looking for a male celebrity with a bad boy persona to play himself in a brief cameo. Musicians or sports figures “with reputations for having aggressive or strong personalities” would be great, too, which means Mike Tyson should call his agent too. And John McEnroe. And Tommy Lee. That’s it. Just those four.

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 Meg Masters)

    Yeah, the performance from Andrew Garfield will blow me away, considering that Andrew Garfield is not in the show. Lincoln is.

      • Not if you look at the ratings and other factors. Glee’s sliding. Take a look at the Toronto Sun article on Glee Shine is Starting to Fade: http://www.torontosun.com/2011/10/04/glee-shine-starting-to-fade

        Comment by Jen – October 4, 2011 11:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Yeah, that’s why the ratings are in the toilet, right? I used to love Glee – until the Darren Criss fandom invaded and dragged the average age of a fan down to about 15.

        Comment by Marcus – October 5, 2011 07:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • You absolutely cannot blame all the low ratings on Darren. That’s unfair and inaccurate. One character does not have the power to make or break a show, but a combination of factors can. Besides, I don’t think Glee is in any long term trouble. It’s still a money spinner, and that’s what the network cares about.
          *
          I’m not 15. I’m 32. I’m also male, and I love Darren Criss. So sweeping generalizations are usually wrong and a bad thing.

    • I wonder how on earth two total bottoms like Kurt and Blaine are going to lose their virginity to each other? :P … because in real-life gay terms, their sexual chemistry is equal to zero… Darren and Chris are both very sexy guys on their own, then why as their characters they look as a pair of eunuchs? :P … I can only blame RIB for this; their “first time” is going to be awkward or completely dull and boring… reality check p.d: two bottoms never work on the long road, unless they have an open relationship or add a top in a threesome…

      Comment by Leo – October 4, 2011 10:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Pfft, come on. Kurt totally tops. He just doesn’t know it yet.

        Comment by Penny – October 4, 2011 10:11 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • yeah, Kurt may learn to top eventually… but not with Blaine, come on, the same guy who told him that his sexy faces looked like he was having “gas pains”? :P … any sexual development between those two has been doomed for me since that, despite how “cute” Klaine may be… Kurt is still too shy at the “physical thing” and Blaine is just too passive to take the lead… at the most, at this stage and taking into account how much frigid they both look, they may have tried (at most) a few handjobs (if anything at all); even blowjobs would be a HUGE step… and just out of the blue the writers decided to sell this idea of they having full penetrative intercourse? Anyway, this is Glee, anything is possible; I guess they’ll have their “Klex”, disregarding any notion about how much aching and awkward would be in reality :P

      • couldn’t they like, have turns? I’d love that! yeah, I actually like there’s no clear top/bottom in those two :P

        Comment by Ana – October 4, 2011 10:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I think in real life there isn’t a clear top/bottom in a relationship. I mean, there are preferences, but eveybody ends up doing both at some point.
          But I agree with the guy that said they are both bottoms, or I should rather say, they don’t have sexual chemistry. They are cute to see, but not to have wet dreams (with each other).

          Comment by Mica – October 5, 2011 07:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • If the spoilers are correct, their first time will be fueled by Kurt not wanting to lose Blaine to Sebastian, not him actually wanting to have sex. I can’t blame him – if my boyfriend danced with other guys all night, got wasted, wanted to screw me, and stomped off when I said no, I’d be afraid of losing him to some slutty piece of trash too. It’s still not something I want to see on TV.

        Comment by Marcus – October 5, 2011 07:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • This were my thoughts after reading all these spoilers from last days. Kurt probably wants to prove to Blaine, that he is better than Sebastian.

          Comment by Wanda – October 5, 2011 11:26 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • We don’t have ANY context for the spoilers, Marcus. Any at all, and stuff that a fan reports from the other side of the parking lot isn’t going to have specifics. He didn’t say Blaine was dancing with other guys “all night”, for instance. I’m guessing that Kurt says no because he wants their first time to be special and sober, and the sex will come later in the episode.

          Comment by Max – October 6, 2011 04:55 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Eh, my partner and I make it work. Neither of us are big, tough blokes and we’ve been together for seven years. Besides, I don’t see Blaine as the bitchy bottom type. He may be small, but he’s got that take charge attitude and he’s not particularly delicate. :)

        Comment by Max – October 6, 2011 04:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Dude, Kurt’s gonna top from the bottom, at least the first few times until Blaine gets his mojo working, or they switch. Either way, Kurt’s running the power dynamic in that relationship, which quite frankly, is surprising since Blaine was originally supposed to be Kurt’s “older, gay mentor”.

        Comment by Jason – October 6, 2011 09:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • emm.. a “top from the bottom” is known as a “Power Bottom” and Kurt is definitely veeeeery far away from that stage… in order to take the lead, he may need to feel completely comfortable with sexual stuff, which is doubtful taking into account how he’s freaked out by porn and such… Kurt may have the basic attitude to become a “Power Bottom” but he may need a partner with way more sexual chemistry than Blaine (and I like Darren a lot, he is funny and sexy as hell, is just that all the “mojo” he has as himself is neutered in his character :P … the same can be said about Kurt, as his confident self in S1 was nullified in S2 when the writers turned him into this sort of Victorian maid :P)

          Comment by Carl – October 7, 2011 03:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • I agree that Kurt’s not *quite* there yet, but just looking at how those two relate to each other I think that’s where they’ll end up. I think a lot of Kurt’s discomfort with sex and sexuality was that he was never allowed to explore that aspect of himself like other boys. He couldn’t even *talk* to another boy without all hell breaking loose. Look what happened when he just wanted to do a duet with Sam. All the sudden he was made to feel like the predatory gay. Kurt was the one teenage boy in all of Lima that was not allowed to so much as fantasize without it being something shameful and dirty and wrong. I would hope that months of having a boyfriend and a safe place and person to finally explore that aspect of himself has given him some much needed confidence. I know its not the romantic ideal but it would be realistic to see them fumble their way through it for awhile before figuring out what works for them…and I suspect what would work for them is for Kurt to take the reins. :)

    • So they luckily get out of prison during labor without getting hurt and they…go to the lab and not the hospital? Hmm, there better be a damn good reason.

      I would enjoy the birth take place elsewhere other than a hospital since we had that with Angela/Hodgins but hoping from one place to the other while in labor? Idk..

  • Wow. There is no doubt Blair is carrying the Bass heir now. That whole plot point would be meaningless if Louis was the daddy. Now I’m starting to wonder if Blair will actually give birth. Gossip Girl has started to get interesting again.

    Comment by Angela – October 4, 2011 04:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Blair definitely has Baby Bass onboard & it seems The Grimaldis sense it. Thus, the contract & ridiculous demands. No worries, Chuck will save the day for Blair & their offspring once she TELLS him he’s the daddy!!! TELL HIM BLAIR ASAP!!! CHAIR + Baby Bass FTW!!!!

      Comment by CHAIRLover – October 4, 2011 09:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • AGREED. I’m telling you, as soon as Chuck finds out she’s pregnant – to hell with who the baby daddy is – he’s going to go off the edge. It’s going to be so freaking awesome. And then, he’ll find out it’s a Baby Bass, and the whole of Monaco and the rest of humanity will implode before Chuck Bass lets his baby be raised by someone else. Telling Blair that he was letting her go was one thing (and also BS, as we all well know), but actually knowing that Blair is carrying his child, that he’s just a step away from actually having a family (which is what Chuck really wants), with the person he loves more than any other…oh yeah. It’s on. I’m down with his letting her go last season, because he thought that it was the right thing to do for her, and that shows maturity. But it’s about to get REAL.

        • Mike/Mama and Klaine were the highlights for me too. Bummed that we have to wait for November for more Glee. I’m looking forward to Kurt and Blaine making love.

          Comment by Brenda – October 4, 2011 10:09 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Me too – I love their relationship. It’s beautiful, so their next step is going to be charming as well. I think there’s more to the spoilers online than meets the eye – I don’t think it’ll happen in the car scene, but later in the episode since they are both romantics at heart and would want to wait until they’re sober.
            *
            But I trust the Glee writers/creators (at least where Klaine is concerned, because they know they have something seriously special there and I think they’re smart enough not to mess that up, because.. well, the fandom would riot, and all the people who have been helped by them would be affected).
            *
            Just can’t wait for November!

            Comment by Max – October 6, 2011 05:02 AM PDT  
    • You don’t need to elaborate why. There’s only a few reasons people actually enjoy Klaine, and the primary one is having extremely low standards.

  • I won’t believe who’s assigned to pester Lockhart Gardner? Like Cary, mayhaps?

    Comment by sarah – October 4, 2011 04:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Cary makes the most sense, because honestly we don’t really know anyone else at the State Attorney’s office (other than Peter) and obviously someone at Lockhart Gardner isn’t going to be investigating Will. But I would have a very easy time believing that. The only name that pops into my head is maybe Blake? From the Lockhart Gardner Bond days might return and go to work for the SA office. But that doesn’t sit super well with me as a suggestion either.

      Comment by Billie – October 4, 2011 07:05 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I just re-read this. He said who gets assigned to the ‘case’ not who gets assigned to investigate. So perhaps its who is defending Will/ looking out for the firm? Or am I reading too much into Aus’s wording here?

        Comment by Billie – October 4, 2011 07:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Nope! My guess is it’s Glenn Childs because of this little gem from Ausiello back on Sept. 20th: “Glenn Childs will be back! Titus Welliver’s ousted State’s Attorney returns in Episode 7, at which point we’ll learn that the little weasel has a new job — at the Dept. of Justice.” Josh Charles also was quoted that in episode 7 “we’re gonna start digging into Will’s past a little bit, so I’m excited about that.” I believe this was when he was interviewed @ the Emmys…

    That said, can I get some Mentalist scoop? How does Morena Baccarin factor back in? Did her character manage to beat the murder charge?
    Also, regarding Castle, when exactly is Alexis supposed to call Beckett a life-ruiner and tell her to step off her dad?
    And finally, any news about the apparent love interest Hotch is supposed to get on Criminal Minds? I need to steel myself for the inevitable hate I will feel for the lady who is not Prentiss.
    Thank you!

    • The request wasn’t necessarily for Chuck/Blair, it was for Chuck and/or Blair. It went for the latter with being about Blair. Heres hoping next weeks AA has some good news for Dair.

    • It was VERY much a Chuck&Blair spoiler because we all know that Blair is carrying Chuck’s baby, not Louis’. This new tidbit reinforces that Blair has Baby Bass onboard, but will be concealing the paternity at least for awhile. No worries, all will be revealed soon. It’s CHAIR & Baby Bass 4 LIFE!!!

          I think it sounds intense. I’m excited for it honestly.

          At least its two people that have been dating for like eight months and they actually love each other. Not that pressuring someone into having sex is ever okay even if you love them and are drunk. But at least Kurt’s not whoring himself around with Karofsky. That’d be a great message, eh? Someone bullying you at school, kids? Just have sex with them! Problem solved.

    • Blaine and Kurt are practically the only reason why are the ratings of Glee dropping. Every week less and less viewers. Writers turned Glee into the “Klaine fanservice show”.

      • Just because it’s the reason YOU don’t want to watch Glee anymore it doesn’t mean that’s why ratings are dropping. Kurt and Blaine have a huge fanbase and there hasn’t been all that much screentime designated to them this year as a couple.

        • This “huge fanbase” consists primarily of horny teenage girls. The adult viewership of the show can see what an unhealthy relationship Klaine is, and can tell from the 3×05 spoilers that it ain’t getting any better anytime soon.

      • I would love to know the science behind that statement. The facts are that Klaine has hardly been on together the first 3 episodes. The first episode they had 2 scenes together that were about a minute each, the second episode the had 1 scene that was about a minute and tonight they had a scene that was minute and a 2 second hug at the end.

      • Considering that Blaine had a WHOPPING two minutes of screen time in tonight’s episode and Klaine had ONE scene together I’d love to know where all the Klaine fan service is.

        Cause I’d seriously watch that show.

        But yeah, Darren Criss was filming a movie while the first few episodes of the season were shooting so Blaine/Klaine isn’t exactly a heavy presence. There’s been more Wemma than Klaine. There’s been more Hummelberry than there has been Klaine. Opinion is one thing, actual facts are another. Darren Criss wasn’t around to film an over abundance of Klaine scenes and therefore there HAVEN’T been any.

          • Blaine’s far from my favorite character (actually Kurt is) but seriously how do you figure? He leaves an academically superior school where he’s safe, popular AND the performance lead to attend a public school where he’s going to be bullied and stuck swaying in the background of New Directions simply because Kurt ASKED him to. Never mind the fact that Kurt asked him to so KURT’S senior year would magical knowing full well that next year Blaine would be on his own as the ONLY openly gay student in the same school where being exactly that put a big old target on Kurt’s back. Yeah, Blaine’s treating Kurt like crap. Not Artie, Emma and Beiste who crushed his confidence and literally laughed in his face or Rachel who stabbed him in the back or Santana whose STILL making homophobic remarks about him, but Blaine. I fail so see how in the three scenes they’ve had, Blaine’s been terrible to Kurt.

          • And how, exactly, does Blaine treat Kurt like crap? I’ve seen you say that multiple times on this one thread alone and yet you have so far failed to give any concrete reasoning for that conclusion. I’m trying to see where you’re coming from, but I literally cannot think of a single incident in which Blaine was anything but good to Kurt. If anything, Kurt has been a major d*ck to Blaine, more than once. With the biphobia thing last season, and making him transfer to that crappy public school. Kurt finally did something nice for Blaine in this episode when he stepped down from a role he was clearly not cut out for instead of diva-ing out about it and pulling the victim card again. Blaine was always there for Kurt during the bullying thing and the prom episode. Maybe he wasn’t always worshipping Kurt like you seem to want him to do. Maybe he didn’t go after Kurt the minute he saw him like Kurt did for him… so? Or are you still bent out of shape over the gas pains comment? Is that what this is about?

  • Thanks for these.

    Regarding Supernatural, I’m very disappointed to hear that the fallout from Sam’s trauma in hell is going to be an ongoing issue. It’s being dealt with in a direct way that Dean’s wasn’t, and that bothers me. It’s not that I love either character more or less, I love them both, but it doesn’t sit right with me at all.

    The concept that I’ve read in various interviews about Sam’s hell being “worse” than Dean’s offends me. You can’t just minimize trauma that way. They’re both awful and I’m uncomfortable by the insinuation that they’re not.

    Whether the writers mean it to come across that way or not, that’s how it feels to me, and so I’m not liking the new season so far.

    • It doesn’t seem to be apparent to Gamble that Dean’s time in hell and his memories and trauma are also something that will always be with Dean because that is part of who he is now. The blatant disregard for Dean’s hell trama makes Sam’s even less interesting for me. It also makes Gamble pretty petty and short sighted. .

        But I’m incredibly disappointed with where things are going now and how they seem to be recycling such an important plot point for another character and making it unbelievably ‘worse’ in the process. It does seem short-sighted on the writers’ parts.

      But you do have to keep in mind that while Dean was in hell for four months, Sam was in the cage for over a year. So sure, it may be a little unfair to make Sam’s hell worse. But it’s only logical considering how he was downstairs longer than Dean.

      • Where I’m coming from is… say two people go to war, and both come back with PTSD. One was in combat for several years, one was there for several months. Their illnesses and their traumas are both real and horrible and should be recognized, to me.

        And I feel like 40 years in hell is being treated as nothing compared to what Sam went through and it does offend me.

          • He has? When did we get resolution for that? One of the last times I can remember them dealing with it, Famine said he had a giant hole inside of him. :/

            There was just never an obvious conclusion to the storyline for me, so it seems silly/weird to re-create it with Sam, especially since it was such a HUGE thing for Dean’s character.

            I’m honestly happy for you if you’re enjoying it, though!

            Comment by Elizabeth – October 4, 2011 05:38 PM PDT  
          • Did he? When did that happen? I never saw it. What I saw was various characters telling Dean he was weak, he needed to suck it up, he didn’t have it so bad and that they had more important to worry about. And Dean as usual, just swallowing it all down and trying to do his job and take care of everyone else.

            And the show agreed with this tactic, they didn’t portray it as if we were supposed to see these people as insensitive, they portrayed it like they wanted us to cheer their insults on. Sera Gamble thought Zachariah’s “pep talk” telling Dean he didn’t have so bad was just what Dean needed after nearly being killed by the demon who tortured him in Hell and finding out he broke the first seal and that he was expected to try and stop the Apocalypse – yet now that it’s Sam, it’s all poor little Sam and his terrible trauma will be with him forever.

            The difference is mind-boggling. One brother gets treated with kid gloves, like he’s the most special thing and his pain is the most special pain ever meanwhile the other got treated like he didn’t matter at all and that his pain was inconsequential and his even allowing his mood to be affected by it was pathetic and weak. And don’t give me that Kripke was in charge thing. Gamble was the head writer after Kripke, she had PLENTY of influence if she’d wanted to use it but as I said she thought Zach’s “pep talk” was just the kick in the butt Dean needed. :/

            In fact the only reason we know anything at all about Dean’s “coping” is because Ben Edlund(the only writer with any sense of continuity who cares about Dean’s story at all) used something from Dean’s experience to allow Dean to help Sam. And what was that? That pain is different in Hell so use the physical pain to ground yourself in reality.

            It’s absolutely chilling knowing this is something Dean learned how to use to COPE that we’ve NEVER EVER saw or even heard about on screen and which was basically used as a tool to talk Sam down.

            That is the only solid thing we’ve learned about Dean’s finding a way to “cope” with his own memories and we learned it 3 years after the fact. And he’s had to do it alone. No one was around to tell him what to do or help him how to deal with it.

      • It’s not “logical” HD. They both were tortured for an unimaginably long time in an unimaginable place. Once you get into “decades of torture”, it doesn’t really matter whether it’s 40 years or 140.

        That’s like saying someone didn’t have it so bad because they were only locked in a dungeon and beaten every day for ten years instead of for 20 years. Seriously do you really think at that point it makes a difference?

        Also Dean got the extra special version of torture because they needed him to break quickly. As I’ve seen pointed out elsewhere it’s very likely that whatever extra Sam had in time was equaled by the fact that they needed Dean to break and went to town on him to make sure that happened. It’s no worse being cut into pieces and hung on meathooks by Lucifer or Alastair. It’s still being cut into tiny pieces and hung on meathooks, for example.

        It’s so upsetting to see Dean’s own terrible predicament, which he got NO sympathy for, no support for – in fact he got insulted, he got told to suck it up, he got told to get over it already and that was despite the fact that he barely talked about, he kept working and he was doing all it of while knowing he was being lied to and betrayed by his brother. Dean was dealing with a ton of pressure at the time – between Sam’s betrayal, the angels being after him, finding out he broke the first seal and was expected to somehow “stop it” – he dealt with all that, alone, with memories of decades of torture in his head every single day and night and with no one who could even remotely understand what he was going through. And he still is and he’s still getting no recogntion for it.

        Sam on the other hand, has Dean who yes CAN understand(because as I said, meathooks are meathooks, no matter who hangs you on them) yet for some reason this show insists on acting like Dean’s time there was nothing, treats it like a footnote and just focuses on poor Wonder Sam like he’s doing something no one else has done before.

      • I think its extremely disrespectful to anyone that’s tortured to try and put a value on on how much someone might have suffered.

        Say some warlord orders some guy’s wife and children tortured and murdered in front him but don’t physically touch him, can you honestly say that he didn’t suffer as much as someone who spent a year in a person camp.

        So say “you didn’t as much as me because…” is very insulting because torture is torture. You can’t measure it.

    • Goodness, people, stop the “Sam does this, Dean does that” line by line comparing and complaining.

      You want to know how Dean dealt with it? He didn’t. He came back to his life and he did what Dean always does. He pushed down all of the torture and the guilt and the trauma and he moved on. Dean has always been better at that than Sam, because Dean has had to be. He had never been the same, and if anyone thinks that it hasn’t been dealt with, you’re not paying attention. The difference was that Dean didn’t come back with just pain, but also guilt. He became the torturer. That haunted him for a long time.

      Still, he never got over it. He came back in the middle of a war. He didn’t have time to deal with it. And when he got five minutes to breathe and try to live a normal life (with Lisa and Ben) he became a drunken mess because of his trauma.

      People handle things differently. Their experiences were different. How they came back was different. How their memories returned to them was different.

      Geez, people. Why does everyone constantly need to compare Dean’s stories to Sam’s stories? And then rip into the producers because Sam got more lines than Dean did. Or Dean doesn’t get any stories, but then when he does get a story they don’t like that story, so they still have to complain. What’s next, a tape measure?

      The stories that are being told are being told well. So, why do people still find a need to complain?

      • I doubt people would be complaining if the stories were well-told. Dean did open up only to be mocked by his family and now he’s expected to help one of the people who mocked him who NOW has the very same problem. That should strike ANYBODY as being unfair and gross.

        It’s like a guy got beaten up, got mocked as a wuss by his brother then the brother got his butt kicked then expects the first guy to go “there, there” and patch him up. No way.

      • I’m paying attention, we just have different interpretations of the text.

        Personally, I think it’s next to impossible not to compare the two when that’s exactly what they’ve explicitly done on the show, actually going as far to say that Sam’s hell was worse than Dean’s. That’s very offensive to me, not as a Sam or Dean fan, even, but just the idea that you can compare decades of torture and minimize one that way. It’s offensive to people who have been through such things.

        Of course they cope with things differently, though, and I think that’s great. But for me, I wish they hadn’t gone there with Sam at all, that we’d gotten an actual hell storyline for Dean, and another, cool, DIFFERENT arc for Sam. I can’t speak for anyone else here, but I love Sam, I want him to have an amazing storyline, but this one just doesn’t work for me. It’s recycled and the idea behind it upsets me.

        Comment by Anon – October 4, 2011 08:47 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • It’s not the same at all. They both went to Hell. Different versions of Hell, for different reasons, with different experiences. The arcs of the characters are completely different. The use of Hell for each character was different. Dean went to Hell, sacrificing himself for Sam and paying a price for that. in the end, he didn’t feel that he deserved to go to Hell. Sam went to Hell to atone for the things that he did. He did believe that he deserved to go there because he had to in order to make things right. The emotional core of each arc is entirely different. The only thing that’s similar is the word “Hell” and they weren’t even in the same type of Hell.

          Nothing has been recycled. The thing you’re complaining about is the fact that they were handled differently, so how can it be recycled?

          Dean’s experience was/is handled on the show often. He never got over it, he just carries that weight differently. It was done in a way that’s true to the character. Just like Sam’s experience is being true to his character.

          Comment by Drew – October 4, 2011 09:03 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Yeah, they were handled differently in the sense that they’re actually handling Sam’s trauma DIRECTLY as a problem they have to work through as a unit, which is what they should have done in the first place with Dean as far as I’m concerned.

            We’re going to have to just agree to disagree on this one.

            Comment by Anon – October 4, 2011 09:17 PM PDT  
          • The situations are entirely different though. They’re dealing with Sam’s trauma as a unit because Sam is insane because of it. Dean’s experience was very different from that.

            I don’t even know how to disagree with an argument like that. Dean handled his experience the way Dean handled it. It took Hell decades to break him down to the point of his being tortured. Now imagine them taking decades to break him down, and then centuries on top of that.

            The trauma is real. It’s significant. It’s brutal. But their experiences are entirely different, and the characters are entirely different. So the writers SHOULD handle the situations entirely different.

            Comment by Drew – October 4, 2011 09:28 PM PDT  
          • There’s a difference between treating it differently and VALUING it differently. When Dean suddenly say that his time in Hell was going to be a trip to Graceland in comparison to Sam’s cage time, how could Dean possibly KNOW that? Why no contradictions? It was set up back during the end of S5 for Dean’s time in Hell to be considered nothing compared to Sam’s time and THAT’S what’s wrong and disgusting.

            It only makes Sam look weaker and much more of a jerk to be “whining” now because Bobby and Sam were laughing it up in Yellow Fever, Bobby snaps at Dean during the last S5 episode and Sam makes fun of Dean while sucking blood from Ruby and couldn’t be bothered to comfort Dean. So this is going to backfire big time on Sera because she’s only going to remind people of a time when Sam failed Dean big time.

          • Sam is weaker than Dean.

            Dean did deal with his experience in typcal Dean fashion. He pushed down the emotions and ignored them, “no chick flick moments” remember?

            Sam is a wuss and a sensitive person, to boot. So his experience is going to be more traumatic for him. He cannot let it go and forget about it like Dean did.

            Dean himself practically calls him a girl many, many times.

            Comment by Dee – October 6, 2011 09:35 AM PDT  
      • Maybe if someone has bothered to tell Dean that Sam was alive he wouldn’t have become a drunken mess.

        Maybe if when Dean tried to talk about how he feels someone doesn’t’ tell him he’s a whiny princess who should suck things up or yell at him for being selfish because its not convenient or the right time then he wouldn’t constantly shove things inside.

        With Bobby and Sam I don’t blame Dean for not wanting to care and share.

        If Sam and Bobby took a really close look at their actions they might see they are a big part of the reason why Dean is so messed up.

          • I was responding to your statement that Dean became a drunken mess when he lived with Lisa.

            Sam’s body was alive though. Bobby thought Sam was alive, even if he didn’t know that Sam didn’t have a soul. Yet he kept that knowledge from Dean for a whole year. So what I’m saying is that Dean wouldn’t have had to spend that year being a drunken mess if someone has told him Sam’s body was out of hell, breathing and walking around. That was a year of pain and suffering that Dean shouldn’t have had to go through.

            As for why Dean buries things, he’s expected to. Sam begged Dean to open up and Sam’s response was to run back to Ruby and call Dean weak. He opened up to Bobby in Lucifer Rising, and its not like Dean had been wallowing in self pity for weeks. it was barely 5 mintues and Bobby called Dean a whiny princess after Sam strangled him.

            All I’m saying is why would Dean want to open himself up to ridicule. That’s why he buries things.

    • I goth say both last season and, not this one seems to be a real step down from when Kripke was the show runner. Gamble writing in the first episode (not the storyline, but the execution of the story and dialogue) was really lacking. It felt uneven and some of Dean’s behavior was inconsistent with what we’ve learned about him so far. And this season Ben Edlund is no longer an EP, so he’s not there to provide the input Gamble sorely needs. The idea of the Leviathans and Sam’s hallucinations being long-term is fine, but I’m not a fan of her voice, and we shouldn’t see such a major shift from Kripke’s voice. Perhaps she is not up to the task.

Prior to that, I always believed that the character was either just the fairy, or named Carabosse. So, did the show-runners get permission from Disney, or is there a name change in the character’s future?

    • Haha I agree! I do enjoy Peter as a character, though… I find him even more interesting than Will (although I am all for Alicia having some fun with Will — she deserves it!)

  • Ye gads, it’s yet another season of “Sam be come back wrong.” And then the producers wonder why fans find it easier to relate to Dean? Maybe if they stopped giving Sam these unbelievable OTT storylines and focused on him as a regular human being…..

    • I agree. I very much wish this storyline was going away by magical means… something.

      I love Sam, but this is entirely unrelatable. 40 years in hell was hard enough to believe, and to believe Dean was still standing.

    • I have to agree with this. Sam is completely unrelatable as a character because this storyline makes him into too much of a Mr. Perfect. I mean he was supposed to be a drooling mess and now somehow he’s going be a more than effective hunter, and suffer no guilt whatsoever from everything he’s done, especially to his brother; things that he should be remembering after his hallucinations magically come under control. This is not a portrayal real human emotions, IMO, so I’m sorrybut I can’t feel much for Sam if he can’t realize how he’s hurt Dean for so long now-and whether he felt it was within his control or not, does not change the fact that his brother has been terribly by him. I was really hoping that the writers would finally address this, and I’m not sure how I will feel about this show after S7 if they never do.

  • So, Sam’s never ending saga is, well, never ending. I don’t care about Sam’s wall, or Sam’s problems. He’s had problems since season 1 and if this is all that Gamble can think of for an arc for the brothers, something wrong with Sam and Dean worried about it, she needs to retire and give the show to someone who is capable of moving forward and isn’t so obsessed with Sam. This story sounds redundant and extremely boring. Not very enticing Gamble, but then again, I’m not a limper so I don’t really care about Sam’s limpness.

    • I agree with some of this.

      I DO care about Sam’s problems and issues and Sam, but not this problem. It feels like such a recycled storyline and traps both Dean and Sam in the little brother/big brother role and isn’t interesting anymore. Someone needs to look after Dean for a change.

      Comment by Elizabeth – October 4, 2011 05:23 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Well, we had Cas, but he got in the way of Dean being all about Sam, so Gamble got rid of him. The reason I don’t care about Sam’s problems is that he’s had them since season 1 and every season it’s another problem. While all Dean has is, what’s wrong with Sam this season that Dean needs to worry about?

        I’d like to see Dean have a story of his own that isn’t about Sam or Sam’s problems, and I’d like to see Sam stop being all about himself and have to think of somebody else for once.

        Comment by ubg – October 4, 2011 05:26 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Yeah, how about we get back to both the brothers are completely free of problems and focus on how the heck they beat the big bad this season? Plus throw in some good ole monster of the week episodes.

          I do see where Sam could have more problems than Dean did though…one, because he was in the cage a year. Two, because he was in there with the Devil himself. And three, because the Devil has more beef with Sam since he was his vessel. Ahh…but the bright side is we do get to see Mark Pelligrino (sp?), who is an amazing actor.

          On a side note, I don’t like all this split fandom with Cas. I mean, yeah, you are going to get people that don’t like him. But I liked him as a character because he did bring some humor to the show and because 4 heads are better than 3 (I’m including Bobby here). However, IF they did in fact kill off Cas, I still would watch the show. I was sad when they killed off Ellen and Jo, but heck, you know with Supernatural, there’s always a way to bring them back.

          • Why should he necessarily have more problems? They were both tortured for an unimaginable amount of time, and comparing them in the sense of saying one is worse than the other is insulting to anyone who has been tortured.

            Sorry, it’s not you I’m annoyed with, but the show.

  • Royal pains is right! I am so sick of the whole sl for Blair!
    I miss Chuck and Blair so much. This show has become so boring
    without them. I knew that Blair would make Louis think he’s the father
    because she’s too afraid of losing her fairytale. It’ll come out eventually
    though, but I hope we don’t have to wait too long. I want Chuck to know the truth!

    • I’m not crazy about that either. Hallucinating and still pining after female monsters is bad all around. Especially when he has the bad habit of seeing his brother as the devil. I’d be worried I’d be shot if I were Dean and Dean shouldn’t have to risk his life day in and day out with a dysfunctional partner.

  • Supernatural has been so much better this season so far than the last couple of seasons. Sera is never going to make the Dean fans happy because they’re never happy no matter what, but us truly bi-bro people seem to be in luck.

      Comment by skepticalinquirer – October 4, 2011 07:26 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • This is not a Deanfan or a Samfan or a bi-bro issue. It’s an issue of poor storytelling and poor writing of Sam’s characterization if they want us to view Sam as a truly caring individual within the context of the brother relationship.

      Comment by Shannon – October 4, 2011 07:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Uh, I’m bi-bro and I’m very unhappy.

      I find this storyline insulting to Dean and trauma survivors in general because of the way his trauma has been minimized, and I don’t like it for Sam because it’s a recycled, over the top (40 years was unbelievable enough) storyline that leaves me cold. I’d love to see some good Sam angst, but not over this.

      Comment by Anon – October 4, 2011 08:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Seriously? His trauma has been minimized? Did I somehow dream up all the eps leading to the 100th? On the Head of a Pin etc.? I’m what you could call a Dean!girl but I think his issues have been handled very well. And I remember all the complains about how Dean was so weak and he should finally man up and stop whining during S4. Wow, Supernatural fans are never happy O_o

        Comment by timotey – October 5, 2011 12:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Yeah, the complaints about Dean not manning up were primarily from Sam!fans, and many of them are still saying that all while squeeing over the potential for a whole season of limp!Sam fanfiction played out on-screen. And if Dean lets Sam work through things on his own, he’s not emo enough and bashed all the more. I guess it’s lucky for them that Sera is as big a hypocrite as they are.

  • Anybody really paY attention to Supernatural? Dean did 4mon/40years in the pit. Sam jumped in the box with Lucifer but he was brought right back.(remember him standing outside Dean and Lisa’s house) I am a fan of the show, good and bad, I also agree that we don’t like where S7 is headed. I would like to see the writers get back to the basics. Yes they do need to let go of the”poor Sam” drama. By the way, what happened to the little antichrist boy? Could be a new arc to head towards.

  • So would the squeamish scene on The Walking Dead be worse than the scene with the zombies (ahem, walkers), eating that poor horse alive? Cuz that was pretty bad. I was not a fan. That was the only scene in the entire first season I didn’t like.

  • I’m kind of excited that Sam’s problems won’t magically disappear on SPN. He will figure out a way to cope with them, but they will never completely go away. This show seems to have found a second wind creatively after a fairly lackluster season 6, and I am more than happy to go along for the ride.

    • I’d have been excited if it were Dean.

      To me it feels like they’re re-doing Sam’s storyline with Sam, only making it more intense, and I don’t get it. It doesn’t make any sense. Why go there again at all? It’s boring to me as a fan of either brother.

  • Yes, but we’ve only been shown the “torture he went through” since he found the pieces of himself at the end of S6. I love both brothers but I would like to see them return to 2 brothers against the evil.

  • I was doing all right giving season 7 of SPN a chance, even if it meant plugging my ears and la-la-la-ing through anything about seasons five and six, but this spoiler is the nail in the coffin. Unless technology evolves to the point where I can turn a knob and adjust the resolution to phase Sam’s vomit -inducing hell trauma right off the screen, there’s no way I can stomach another minute of this crap.

    • I’m starting to feel this way as well, and feeling pretty bummed about it. This has been my favorite show for years.

      I really can’t believe they went there, again, after obviously struggling with what the effects 40 years of torture would have on someone, not knowing how to handle it onscreen, and so choosing to focus on it only briefly/inadequately.

      And to actually straight-out say it’s WORSE or Sam? How can any kind of torture be worse than any other kind of torture? How offensive is that?

      I’m nearing the end of my rope/time as a viewer for sure.

      Comment by Anon – October 4, 2011 08:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I am enjoying Supernatural season 7 much more than season 6, but this neverending Sam trauma is dull as, well, hell.
    It was fine for the last 3 episodes, but if this goes on, it’s going to ruin Sam’s character for me, which already is a trial.
    It interupts the story in ways that add nothing. It’s soap operatic angst for the sake of angst.
    Frankly, I’m glad Dean’s hell wasn’t handled this way. The silent, implied suffering, plus the appearence of Alistair, is much more interesting and moving, and was integral to the plot.
    This Sam stuff is just deadly dull. And knowing it’ll never end is Crowley’s hell of an endless DMV line.

    Comment by Mooch – October 4, 2011 08:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Is there any chance the Powers that Be at SPN read this?

    I feel like there’s been so much focus on what’s going on with Cas and the problems fans have with it (I’m actually liking Cas’ storyline, btw) that they really have no idea that quite a few people are unhappy over Dean’s hell experience being minimized like this.

    To say in interviews and on the show as well, that one is “worse” than the other is deeply problematic to me. If two people were tortured in real life, no matter what the varying circumstances, you wouldn’t compare it that way. It would be gross to, or I think it it would.

    Add that to the fact that 40 years spent in hell was already unrelatable, and Dean’s post-hell storyline was (arguably) not dealt with well, or at least certainly not as directly as Sam’s has been already – and we’re only two eps into the season! – and I’m left wondering why they ever went here again, with another character.

    It’s boring, and it’s upsetting. In my opinion.
