Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on Bones, Gossip Girl, Vamp Diaries, Walking Dead, Glee, SVU and More!

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)

    I can’t wait to see Caroline kiss Damon’s ass! That just totally made my night!

    • Sarah says:

      *kick (I should not type on a lack of sleep.)

      • Kathryn says:

        Vampire Barbie kicking Damon’s butt is ridiculous. He’s stronger than the vapid twit being he’s an older vampire. How many times has Damon rescued this vapid twit? Last time he almost died and she couldn’t even go and visit him when he was on his death bed. She was all put out it was ruining watching GWTW.

        Damon should give her a dirt nap. Now that I’d love to see.

  2. br says:

    Peter Bishop, finally! Is that glimpse for this week’s episode?

  3. Leigh says:

    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!!!

  4. Marilyn says:

    God I am so sick of hearing about Sam and his Hell memories. Wake me up when this storyline is over. Oh wait. It will never be over.

  5. Ella says:

    Ummmm, I don’t want to see Caroline kick Damon’s ass. If anyone should be doing the ass kicking it’s Damon.

  6. Alyssa says:

    Chuck and Blair’s baby!! bring it on! I am all for it. I am watching this show for Chuck and Blair.They are the only reason I am obsessed with this show. I sometimes think that I wish GG hasn’t created this amazingly awesome couple which made me obsessed with this show then I wouldn’t be watching like crazy and I wouldn’t be tortured with this ridiculous storylines lately GG is trying to push down our throats which are completely the opposite what they have been telling us for 4 seasons.

  7. Anna says:

    About Supernatural, the writers have hit a goldmine idea with Sam’s hallucinations. I hope they keep it. It’s not realistic to just let it go away like it magically cured itself. SO I’m happy and optimistic with what I”m reading. As long as we have a season with just Sam and Dean fighting evil and being united I’m happy too.

  8. Sandy says:

    The spoiler SCREAMS Baby Bass! Yay) Somebody is getting into a spider net. Yep, Blair, I’m looking at you. That’s what happens when you lie about your Baby Daddy.

  9. Christina says:

    Is that my Walking Dead question? I sent it weeks ago lol

    I actually can’t wait to see Lauren Cohan on Walking Dead. And I love Glenn so they could be an interesting pairing :D

  10. Julie says:

    «But what happened to Sam’s head is pretty permanent.»
    My only wish with this line is that we’ll get more Sam/Lucifer scenes along the season, but not too much as to get tired of it because Mark is doing a FANTASTIC job at creeping the hell out of me. But I agree with deanna seriously it’s like they go 2 episodes at a time with this, and my fear is that the season will lose its juice after a while. So far so good, I’m glad we’re where we are since the guys are pretty much on their own (and if Bobby makes it out alive at the end of next episode my bet is that he’ll stick with his sherif for a while *la wink*). I adored how Dean – despite the fear of getting shot by Sam – helped him out with snarky comments. THAT’s how Dean is supposed to be. I don’t want that to go away. Sam had issues to deal with in season one too, and I think that having him freaking out-ish along the way is somewhat relatable to back then (maybe that’s what they are trying to do here my guess is as good as yours). But whatever the case I guess we just have to wait and see… *just wanted to babble a little*

    • skepticalinquirer says:

      Oh, wait a minute. Dean should just let Sam “grow up” by letting him handle this crap all by himself. After all that’s what everybody expects Dean to do. Dean shouldn’t help Sam at ALL. After all, Sam is continually pushed as so much better than Dean so he shouldn’t need the help of an “inferior.”

      Dean got ripped for being too “bossy” and meddling, I’m sick of him having to do anything for someone who wasn’t tehre for him.

      • Keep Cas says:

        I agree. Expect that Dean will be accused of not being there for Sam if he does that but then he will be accused of being to bossy for not letting Sam grow up.

        Dean’s pretty damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t. Its one of the reasons why I prefer the Dean/Cas bond.

        • Courtney says:

          Dean will never give up on trying to help Sam, no matter what anyone says to him. Because he’s always held to the promise that he would take care of his brother no matter what.

          • skepticalinquirer says:

            And what about the implicit promise of being there for one’s family when they need you? Sam has failed, failed, failed that many times. let me be frank, Sam is not a good person at all.

      • Cindy says:

        I honestly felt sorry for Dean in seasons 4 and 5, because he had no one to lean on in his time of need. He was verbally (Sam, Bobby, Angels, Demons) and physically beaten (Castiel, Sam) down by his family and enemies.

        So while I’m happy that Dean is trying to do the right thing, by being a supportive big brother for Sam, I’m also feeling resentment towards both Bobby and Sam for not being there for Dean when he needed them.

  11. EdTV says:

    Any significance to the sideways 4 in the Fringe Promo… Peter Returns Friday Nov 4th?

  12. Becca says:

    Just felt like letting someone know… I emailed the Playboy Club question literally seconds before the cancellation story came out. I sent the email, refreshed the tvline home page, and there it was.

  13. Trish says:

    Ok….klaine is not my fave glee cpl by any means (quick please), but blaine taking kurt for granted and such? Nah. I think its more kurt turning into a whiny little brat everytime he wants his way and blaine giving in. kurt is really annoying this season. I like blaine, and that they finally have some real male talent in the nds.

    • Shelby says:

      “Blaine taking Kurt for granted and such”? Where are you people getting this? No, seriously, where are you getting this. I’ve seen so many people say that Blaine is going to pressure Kurt into having drunk sex in the back seat and I have no idea where you all are getting your facts from.

  14. Cheyenne says:

    On what people are saying about the Glee spoilers: To pretend that a couple, just because they’re gay, wouldn’t have sex in high school is completely ignorant. It happens. I don’t understand why people feel the need to come on here just to complain about it. If you don’t like it, don’t watch. Simple as that.

  15. F.M says:

    “Yes, Kurt loses his virginity to Blaine.”

    I think I’m in love with you right now.

    • misssandybee says:

      I know, right?! Why was there any doubt about it? I’m actually kind of curious of how it will be treated because I don’t know if there has been any show (at least on network television)that talks about gay kids losing their v-cards. It should be interesting at least.

  16. Volcfom says:

    Clever dodge on the Dean of Medicine question…

  17. God says:

    david shore has no soul

  18. Alexis says:

    Yay for klaine ! but too fast srsly
