Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on Revenge, Glee, Chuck, Bones, Sons of Anarchy, Parenthood 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, please, please give me some scoop on my new addiction Revenge! I can’t get enough of this show and I’m dying to know when Jack figures out who Emily/Amanda truly is. Anything you can give me would be great. —Ellyn
Ausiello: Sounds like he’ll remain utterly and completely duped for the time being. “He’s not getting any vibe yet that she’s [the childhood love] from his past,” reveals Jack’s portrayer, Nick Wechsler. “There are moments where you think he’s onto her, even if just for a second, and then you realize that he doesn’t know.”

Question: I’m surprised by your lack of scoop on a great show like Revenge! I’m dying here! —Theresa
Ausiello: Confession: Despite having pledged my eternal allegiance to Emily VanCamp long ago, I was on the fence about Revenge at first. But I’m coming around. I really enjoyed last week’s episode, particularly the part where Emily/Amanda locked her shrink in a storage locker. That made me happy. Getting back to your scoop request, I hear Victoria’s nosy P.I. will unearth some major dirt about Emily’s past that could throw a monkey wrench into her little revenge scheme.

Question: We’ve known for a while that there is going to be another holiday album this year for Glee. But will the music make it onto an actual episode? Or is doomed to only live on in my iTunes library? —Casey
Ausiello: There’s a pretty good chance that the tunes will make it on air since I can officially confirm that Glee is doing a Christmas episode this December. And it looks like this will be the one directed by Mr. Schue himself, Matthew Morrison.

Question: Got any news about Chuck? —Dani
Ausiello: Let’s ask TVLine’s Matt Mitovich, who’s currently burning through the first three episodes: “Although the Oct. 28 season opener invites us to geek out as Mark Hamill (Star Wars) plays a villain who is equal parts Jack Benny and Truman Capote, his screen time is surprisingly sparse. Instead, Craig Kilborn figures into the main storyline. Professionally, Carmichael Industries’ spies-for-hire are doing their best to drum up business, though Casey wishes they had a better clientele. Personally, Chuck is laboring to surprise Sarah with a super-romantic something, in a B-story that serves mainly to give us a “top-secret” project name that makes an acronym of “Toes In The Sand.” (Do the math.) Also, Richard Burgi is back as Chuck’s CIA nemesis — for better or, more likely, for worse.”

Question: OMG, Homeland is sooo good. Any scoop? —Susan
Ausiello: The show’s a hit! Sunday’s third episode drew 1.07 million viewers — up 15 percent over Episode 2. Those are good numbers for Showtime and all but guarantees the Claire Danes thriller will see a second season.

Question: I don’t normally do this. I faithfully read your column each week. I don’t complain because “you never give info on my show!” I get that there are a lot of shows on TV and think you do a pretty good job keeping the masses happy. All of these compliments are real and not because I’m desperate, LOL. For the love of Charming, please give out some scoop on Sons of Anarchy. I don’t care what it is as long as it is good. There is, literally, nothing out there. I could be creative and try and imagine what is going to happen based on the titles of the upcoming episodes but that would just make me crazy. This drought is worse than the pre-Internet days. Please, give up some scoop! —Becky
Ausiello: Really? You think I do a pretty good job? Ouch. If that’s what you call a compliment I’d hate to see what you consider a slam. Not that you deserve it, but here’s an SOA scoop that should quiet the crazy lurking inside you: A major SAMCRO death looms, and it may or may not be connected to the final scene of this week’s episode. Also, after you’re done with next week’s episode, you’ll never look at a bowl of chili the same way again. This I promise you.

Question: This season of Sons of Anarchy is so intense. Any scoop on what’s to come? – Kimberly
Ausiello: Despite everyone’s best efforts to keep things hush-hush, word quickly spreads outside SAMCRO about the threat made on Tara’s life. It all leads to a rather tense exchange between the Tara and Rockmond Dunbar’s deputy sheriff. In related news, Tara better not die. Just putting that out there.

Question: I will pay you whatever you want if you tell me that Minka Kelly will return to Parenthood now that Charlie’s Angels is canceled! —Julian
Ausiello: Sadly, a return to P’hood isn’t in the cards for her. “I love Minka and thought she did an amazing job as Gaby,” exec producer Jason Katims tells me. “I would love to bring the character back, but since we’ve already broken the stories for this season, I think it’s unlikely that could happen.” Bummer. I liked Gaby. I like cold hard cash more though, so riddle me this Julian: How high were you prepared to go?( Just curious.)

Question: Now that Charlie’s Angels is canceled, any chance Rachael Taylor will go back to Grey’s Anatomy and finally give Karev some happiness? —Brian
Ausiello: Unlike Kelly, I’m willing to bet all the money Julian was going to give me that Taylor’s Dr. Fields will be back on Grey’s by February sweeps.

Question: I realize that Calzona on Grey’s Anatomy had a huge storyline last season, so I was expecting them to be back-burnered this fall. But now I miss them! What you got? —Jennifer
Ausiello: I’ve got what Jessica Capshaw calls a really nice “moment” between Calzona and Mama O’Malley in the Nov. 3 episode. Hey, it’s something!

Question: Any chance of my favorite Grey’s couple, Mark and Lexie, will be getting back together anytime soon? —Stella
Ausiello: In light of this breaking news, I’m thinking probably not.

Question: I know that Nick died on The Secret Circle. But it’s a show about magic, so I gotta ask: Is Nick gonna stay dead? –Camilla
Ausiello: As a doornail, Camilla. EP Andrew Miller, meanwhile, reveals that the next few episodes will shed more light on who Charles is and the nature of his relationship with Dawn when they were younger. Furthermore, “It wouldn’t surprise me if Charles has ideas about their relationship that perhaps Dawn isn’t entirely aware of,” he hints. “And that may have to do with things in their past and perhaps his hopes for the future. Their relationship will become increasingly complicated as we move forward.”

Question: When will we get scoop on Deeks and Kenzie from NCIS: LA? —Shaun
Ausiello: Today? Former House private eye Michael Weston has been cast in a November episode as an Internal Affairs investigator who enlists the help of a fellow cop to catch a mole in the department. What does that have to do with Deeks and Kenzie, you ask? Um… well… maybe Weston’s character Jack will have a scene with one or both of ‘em?

Question: Just curious — what are your five favorite shows at the moment? —Julie
Ausiello: That’s tough. There’s a lot I’m loving right now. How about I tell you the five shows I most enjoyed this past week: Homeland, Community, Happy Endings, Sons of Anarchy and The Good Wife.

Question: I have a Bones Q. Does Brennan really have an ultrasound where she finds out the gender of the baby by herself and without informing Booth until after the fact? How could she take that moment away from him? She knows what being a dad means to him. I swear the writers want me to hate Brennan. She does this? Seriously heartless. —Danni
Ausiello: Simmer yourself. It’s more complicated than that. Besides, it all leads to one of my favorite B&B moments ever — one that would not have been possible had Booth been on hand for the initial reveal.

Question: I’m counting down the days until Bones returns on Nov. 3. Anything you can give me to tide me over? —Lauryn
Ausiello: There’s a scene in Episode 6 (a.k.a. the midseason finale) that was so revolting even exec producer Stephen Nathan couldn’t stomach it. And it takes a lot to gross out that guy. As a result, it was cut from the episode. “It was the body of a victim that was murdered,” he explains. “There was one angle where it looked like something from a medical journal. Totally gross. Not like our entertainingly revolting remains. It just looked too real. But never fear, there is much to close your eyes and shriek about in the episode.”

Question: I am so loving the sexy, scary goodness that is American Horror Story. Got any info? —Karen
Ausiello: In this Wednesday’s episode, you’ll learn why Frances Conroy’s maid character is short an eyeball. Also, Tara’s mom from True Blood — a.k.a. Adina Porter — pops up as a new patient of Ben’s. But I don’t think she’ll be seeing him again. Just a hunch.

Question: I am loving Lisa Edelstein on The Good Wife! Can we expect any juicy scenes between her and Julianna Margulies? —Charlie
Ausiello: Lisa E is killing it. It’s really exciting to watch her play someone so different from Cuddy. In Sunday’s episode — Lisa E’s last for now (sigh) — Celeste collaborates on a case with Lockhart Gardner, so she’ll be working with Alicia for the first time. I hear the two have a really fun scene in a bar, during which Celeste offers Alicia some advice on her career and on her love life.

Question: Please tell me something about Cary and Kalinda on The Good Wife! —Marie
Ausiello: Episode 8 allegedly features some extremely hot C/K action.

Question: Rumor has it that Serena and Dan’s book will continue to collide on Gossip Girl — what does this mean for Dan and Serena? —S.H.
Ausiello: It means S will channel her inner thespian and pretend to bury the hatchet with her ex in an effort to get him to sign over the movie rights to the controversial tell-all. I’m guessing Dan will see right through it, though. Blake Lively is a terrific actress; Serena, not so much.

Question: Is Blair’s baby daddy really Louis on Gossip Girl? —Kori
Ausiello:  I honestly don’t know. What I can tell you, however, is that there’s a kiss coming up. A kiss that will whip a certain passionate ‘shipper base into a frenzy. A kiss that will have office watercoolers buzzing for weeks to come. A kiss so hot it’s followed by a [spoiler alert]!

Question: Any 90210 scoop related to the looming Dixon/Adrianna romance? —Jess
Ausiello: Dixon’s love affair with Ritalin will pave the way for the two addictive personalities to hook up. “She’s gets it more than anyone because she’s been there before,” explains Jessica Lowndes. “That’s going to pull them closer together. Dixon was with Silver in Season 1 and she then started dating his best friend Navid, so I think he understood where Adrianna was coming from. He obviously didn’t swap out any bipolar medicine for sugar pills, but they can bond and connect over that emotion.”

Question: Hey Aus! Would you be ausome enough to answer my question? Will Terra Nova be spending any time back in 2149, or will all the time be spent in 85 million BCE? —Adam
Ausiello: You’re a real aushole Adam, you know that? To your question, showrunner Rene Echevarria confirms that the show will be travelling back to the future! “Most of our storytelling takes place in Terra Nova,” he says. “Toward the end of the season, however, the Sixer conspiracy comes to a head and this takes us to some scenes that play out in 2149.” (Programming note: TN is off this Monday due to the World Series. It return on on Oct. 31 with a murder mystery episode.)

    Definitely hope the Cary/Kalinda action is Cary getting killed off. Their scenes together are so horrible. I hate seeing Kalinda hanging with the villain.

    • Alicia says:

      Way harsh, Tai. Cary is not a villain, he’s just tired (understandably) of being used by Kalinda. Don’t get me wrong, I adore Kalinda, but she walks all over him for no reason.
      And thanks for the sccop, Aus! Oh I wonder what Celeste’s “love advice” entails; threesomes? ;)

      • sarah says:

        I don’t think Cary’s a villain because of kalinda, though I think he treated her really badly when he could see she was at her weakest last season. I think he’s a villain because after a full season of imagining some sort of feud between him and Alicia, he joined up with her angry husband in order to cause Alicia and her firm trouble. He’s only going to be more of an antagonist towards LG as the season progresses, all because he was a weaker lawyer who brought in less business and his ego couldn’t stand it. Plus he seems to have a penchant for enjoying taking short cuts and prosecuting innocent people rather than pushing for better investigation.

        • Alicia says:

          Cary was a bit callous towards Kalinda, but it’s kind of just desserts at this point; all she does is take and take from him. Last season she approached him 3 separate times IN ONE EPISODE to ask for “a favor.” Each time his face was like “are you serious?” O_O but he still helped her anyway.
          Likewise, just because he’s looking out for his own doesn’t make him a villain to Alicia. So the guy needs employment and is trying to make himself indispensable, it’s not like he ever lied about Alicia to Peter. He was trying to secure a job, he didn’t say anything to screw her over. And they’re on different sides of the law (so to speak), so of course things are going to be adversarial now, but they were really quite sweet together when they were both at LG.
          I just don’t get all the Cary hate.

          • Sue says:

            I don’t get anyone who hates Cary. It’s so ridiculous. Cary is not any worse ethically than anyone else on the show and in fact he is the least morally ambiguous of all of them. Even Alicia kept her job against Cary by using her political contacts. Some people just over react because he’s against the show’s star character. Cary is a beautifully acted and complex character. Anyone who’s worked in the Peace Corp, the Innocence Project and the S.A.’s office can’t be bad. He’s the most interesting character on the show. Like him with Kalinda but he deserves a real long term relationship. Go Cary!

          • Ashley says:

            Agree completely with Alicia and Sue… I do not get the Cary hate. He is a wonderfully nuanced character. And Kalinda TOTALLY used him (and I say this as the biggest Kalinda fan on the planet. I love her; she’s my favorite character). She cares for him, but let’s face it… Kalinda uses people. That’s what she does. Anyway, I am SO looking forward to some C/K action. I don’t see them in a relationship, but the chemistry is there and I’m so excited for it. If you bring the hot FBI lady (Lana, I think) back it would get even better haha.

      • Bethany says:

        Your Clueless reference cracked me up! Nice work.

    • Denise says:

      Umm..NO! I love Cary and Kalinda’s chemistry.

  2. sianna says:

    I don’t want Rachael Taylor go back to Grey’s because she’s Izzie’s clone (the Izzie sweet & funny).
    Plus Katie said she misses Izzie and Justin on her twitter! I want a final Alex/Izzie back together

    • lorna says:

      Um, no Rachel was NOT izzie, Rachel was a RUDE nosy backstabbing cow.

    • Guy says:

      Would love to have her back and disagree with you. Rachael was amazing on Grey’s and was just starting to click for me. I think bringing her back is a must now Angels is dead. She brings that breath of fresh air to the cast.

    • spikesgrl says:

      I really don’t want them to bring Rachael Taylor back either. But not because she is Izzie’s clone (I don’t see that at all) I just didn’t like the actress or character.

  3. tripoli says:

    Blake Lively a terrific actress? That’s news to me.

    • Michael says:

      I’ve been seeing sentiments that she’s not a good actress around lately. I don’t know where this comes from, I think she’s quite good. If you’ve seen her in another role, she completely changes and transforms. She’s not too bad.

      • Pat says:

        Other than The Town, I don’t think I have been too impressed by anything she has done. She was pretty flat and boring in the Green Lantern and she doesn’t add much to Gossip Girl. I also always thought a good actress can bring life to even bad dialogue.

        • Katie says:

          I’m assuming, then, that you’ve never seen “Elvis & Anabelle”. THAT is the best role I’ve seen her in to date. And a wonderful and underrated film.

          • Hey! says:

            Still, she is only a good actress when there is good direction and a good screenplay. The Sisterhood movies and Green Lantern she was mediocre at best. But if you look at Leighton (I hate to compare them but it can’t be helped) she has done a lot of of awful movies like The Roommate and Monte Carlo yet she manages to shine and critics have notice too. Blake gets by on her looks and dating life not any extraordinary acting ability. She’ll probably have a good career if she keeps getting offered solid parts with talented directors and stays in the public eye with her dating. Honestly, she’ll probably be more successful than Leighton but it won’t be because she is a better actress.

          • Bri says:

            I agree. I just love that movie! I watch it everytime it plays on Lifetime or LMN.

        • Captain says:

          Agreed. Yes, she was good in The Town (not great but she did impress me) but other than that, I haven’t seen her do well or “transform” in any role. She’s very flat and has a hard time emoting much. I’ve never been impressed by anything she’s done in Gossip Girl, the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants or Green Lanturn.

        • Ava says:

          I find Blake Lively to be all around terrible. She is especially terrible when she tries to have an accent. She tends to be flat and brings the same flighty stupidity that makes Serena Van Der Woodsen to every single role. She tend to be two extremes, surly or overly excited. She doesn’t really bring much.

      • RyanD says:

        The problem is, she constantly sounds like she has narcolepsy of the jaw.

        • Jenny says:

          Blake suffers from marbles in her mouth syndrome. Millions are suffering from this, and it must be treated.

          • Ashley says:

            It’s funny because on the DVDs for Gossip Girl all of Blake Lively’s lines are redone so they are more clear. I seriously need captions to understand anything Ms. Marblemouth is saying. She’s usually good for a couple words but then she gets to like the third or fourth word and things just grakenamneaojmm.

    • XtremeGleek says:

      HAHA me too! She is not that great she just sucks all the fun and the LIVELYness out of any movie or shows she’s in.

  4. John says:

    Skimmed over this…one thing Please Please do more on Community that last episode with a nod to Run LoLa Run was awesome and the shows needs all the viewers it can get

  5. verybookish says:

    Love the scoop on the Secret Circle. Gale Harold is such a great actor, and I’m loving him in this role! Can’t wait to see what happens between his character Charles and Dawn.

  6. Liz says:

    Awe I hope that the Gossip Girl kiss is a DAIR kiss. Monday’s was good but not real. Please make it happen!!!

  7. Pocket says:

    if its Blair/Chuck I will throw things.

  8. Wendy says:

    Regarding Bones, I wonder what moment is so profound that Booth *needs* not to be at the initial revealing ultrasound? I admit to being curious/intrigued now, rather than a bit miffed.

    • Jillian says:

      They found out the sex of the baby. Apparently, Brennan doesn’t tell him about the ultrasound or about the sex of the baby…and then just blurts it out to the team.

      • Wendy says:

        @Jillian I know that, but it says that some great Booth/Brennan moment occurs that could *not* happen if Booth was present at the ultrasound. So, naturally, I’m curious what kind of moment would necessitate Booth *not* being there.

        • Jillian says:

          I’m sorry. I misread your comment. I wonder what the great B&B moment is going to occur. I’m not sure if I like Booth not being there…so I hope this fabulous B&B scene makes up for it.

    • ps says:

      It could easily be an ultrasound because she is worried that there is something wrong with the baby, and doesn’t want to worry Booth unless there is a need to tell him. The gender could be discovered during that ultrasound, and then she tells him (along with the fact that everything is okay with the baby).

  9. 1mars says:

    I’m simmering but Bones is in a real position to really hurt Booth AGAIN, hope she (and the writers) have learned something about him in the last 7 years.

    • Evelyn says:

      I too hope there is real love between B&B this time. The skids that can be written between trying to solve murders and motherhood,can give a funny, loving, and true to life affect,for us,the viewers. I can’t wait for Bones to start, it is truly one of the most intelligently written shows on TV. Love those squints!!!!

  10. V says:

    My guess is that either Tara, Piney, or Unser will get killed on SoA. I would say Juice but I really don’t think he will die. Do you really think that the Intelligence Officer would rat out the club especially when he saw what happened when they thought Opie was a rat? Also, I kinda want Tara to die, she has been getting on my nerves lately. *ducks for cover*

  11. DivineBeing says:

    That kiss sounds like it’s coming from Chuck and Blair. I will be all aquiver if it is!

    • Carrie says:

      YES! Please have a hot Chuck and Blair scene!!!!!! The rest would be dull like last night! Oh, and that baby better be Chuck’s not prince Lame.

      • Asha says:

        Word! I have this dichotomy towards the prince. Sometimes I really like him. He seems to make Blair happy, he seems like a good guy. So I like him but THEN I realize that maybe this baby is his and not Chuck’s and I go into this crazy place where none of the good things matter and he’s just a useless obstacle keeping Chair apart. That being said if Chair isn’t endgame I’ll feel like I wasted years of my life.

  12. Renee says:

    Awww. I was hoping for something on Person Of Interest.

  13. Gemma says:

    No Castle spoiler :'(. I really want to know what goes down in that “haunted” house next episode, especially since I heard the lights go out and both Castle and Beckett freak out. Cuddle time?

  14. Allie says:

    Please, for the love of God, let it be Chuck and Blair kissing on GG. I’m already having withdrawal symptoms, and we’re only 4 episodes in…

  15. Amanda says:

    I hope it’s Chuck and Blair. I am so bored with gg right now. And I guess I am not the only one. The ratings are awful and just keep getting worse. Did the writers really thought Dan could carry gg? This show needs more Chuck/Chair

    • Jenna says:

      I hope it is too and ,yeah, only Chuck and Blair’s kisses are hot so that is watercooler talk. And ,no, Dan can’t carry squat.

  16. Josie says:

    I bet the water-cooler moment kiss on Gossip Girl is Chuck and Blair! So excited.

  17. Mikko says:

    Totally agree with you, Lisa Edelstein is fantastic in TGW but to be honest i wouldn’t like her to become a regular. As much as i love the show i want to see her play as many different roles as possible

    • xav says:

      I kind of want her to recur. Right now the role seems quite forced, but I think she would be more powerful with better storylines as someone who recurs like David Lee and Julius Cain.

      • Alicia says:

        Agreed, I’d like her to recur as well, but the character seems like she’s trying to drag down everyone around her (and is only good for trouble). Maybe we’ll see a different side to her this Sunday, maybe she can be a boon as well?

  18. Melly says:

    Please let the kiss be Chuck and Blair. The show has been so boring without them. Need the Prince to go away!

  19. Juliana says:

    I hope It’s a CB kiss. I miss them! ♥

  20. dairforthewin says:

    Maybe they are just throwing a bone to the chair fandom while the kid is Louis’. I hope its a dair kiss though..

    • J says:

      I don’t see how the baby can be Louis’ if he’s not gonna be around long-term (and I hope to heaven he isn’t gonna be…he’s gotta be the most cardboard boyfriend they’ve had on the show). Unless they’ve decided to “get rid” of the baby and Louis by writing in a miscarriage…but that storyline would be very sad so I hope not. I’d rather that the baby is Chuck’s. And since they very pointedly showed her hiding the letter in her desk drawer, I think there’s more to come on that front.

      But I think (and hope) the kiss will be Dair and not Chair–that’s something different. The first time Dair kissed it was a misfire and they’ve gotten closer since then. It would be interesting for them to go back to that again. This time from an actual spontaneous moment rather than from a “lets just do it and get it over with” attitude. :)

  21. HeartsGG says:

    Yes!! It has to be a Chuck and Blair kiss, nothing else makes sense since they’ve already said the triangle is between Chuck/Blair/Louis, her kissing Dan wouldn’t make sense in the storyline that they’ve already established is happening. Can’t wait! Chair!

  22. Sarra says:

    Fingers crossed it’s a Chuck and Blair kiss.

  23. Lily says:

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, Grey’s please do not bring back Lucy Fields. Bring Izzie back! Katherine said herself she would love to come back. And this is suppose to be the season of the originals. Alex and Izzie are meant for each other!

  24. serapy says:

    omg “A kiss that will have office watercoolers buzzing for weeks to come” I just hope its CHAIR KISS this guys scenes are always the best… SORRY DAIR FANS but for me DAIR never happen… blair have to reborn for this happens…

  25. Samantha says:

    That gossip girl kiss can only be about chuck and blair. No other ‘ship has watercooler provoking chemistry!

    • Angelina says:

      So true. Plus the writers already threw a bone to that fandom with the Dan’s fanfiction kiss.

    • Crista says:

      I need it to be them. I’m so sick of the show when they aren’t on and 1 -2 minute scenes aren’t cutting it. Chuck and Blair please!

  26. MGL says:

    Ok. i am the only one, but I am not enjoying Celeste on The Good Wife. I liked her on House until Huddy, but the whole dialogue scene with her Peter and Will was actually uncomfortable. Hope she is gone soon. Can’t help it.

    • Alicia says:

      “…was actually uncomfortable.” It was supposed to be uncomfortable–she was deliberately trying to start sh*t :)

    • sam says:

      The scene was supposed to evoke natural physical discomfort, so everyone could directly relate to the characters. If you felt embarrassed and screamed at your TV for her to shut up, that’s the best testament to her talent. :)

    • Jack says:

      I agree. It wasn’t just the dialog, but the way LE mugged while delivering her lines. I fear she spent too much time around HL on House and picked up his bad habit without developing the finesse to pull it off.

      • to Jack says:

        It’s called richness of facial expression, that’s what stands her (and Hugh Laurie) apart. She lives within her character’s skin and does what comes naturally to her, especially when the character is that unhinged and provocative, it’s not a conscious effort. It may not look pretty, but it’s the sign of life and the mark of a great character actor.

        If you like frozen faces, go watch Olivia Wilde. I’ve heard she had fans too.

        • Lily says:

          You call it “rich facial expression” and i call it —she overacted—. I mean her lines were provocative but she made this character just wicked, gross and completely unprofessional. She made a possible interesting character thanks to her total lack of subtility to a one-dimensional laughing stock. Additionally she introduced this portion and gimmickry to the show which i don`t want to watch again or i expect on this decent,well-written show. It is not The Good Wife i know and learned to appreciate.
          IMo of course, the Producers would make a big mistake if they kept her on the show regulary.They have an amazing cast and this high-praised show which can compete with the cable dramas.But this woman only brings trouble,sorry.
          I have nothing against LE personally. If she wants to she can get her own show where she can make use of her rich facial expression but please stay away from TGW.

            Have you ever been to a party, where one girl (or woman), in your opinion trashy and vulgar, takes central stage, and all guys, to your horror and disgust, seem to flock to her? That’s exactly the part she is playing, and that’s exactly the reaction they creators wanted you to have. They wanted a troublemaker to stir things up, and it had to be uncomfortable. If you doubt my words, wait till the next episode, when Celeste plays off ladies and doesn’t need to measure up with men, and see if you change your opinion or notice more layers.

          • Lily says:

            @Lily To be even more clear i have no problem with the introduction of Celeste or the way she is written and i know very well that these woman exist. I understand her purpose and i find it highly interesting what we have learned about Will.
            I have more problems with LE acting. She is portraying Celeste to an ad absurdum and to an extend that she lost any kind of believability or credibility. This is probably the reason that a lot of people say that Celeste is embarrassing.
            You (@lily) have obviously seen the next episode where the writers trying to show the good sides of Celeste. Hm yeah, let`s hope that LE is able to behave her face otherwise this story won`t work out,IMO.

    Hoping the kiss is between Chuck and Blair, but I have the sinking feeling it may be Dan. Also still hoping the baby is Chucks, even if I’m not feeling sure of that either. But hey, your “I don’t know” gave me more hope than Kristin’s answer!

    • Amanda says:

      No I don’t think it’s Dan because who else has a bigger GG shipper base than us? But I do think Chuck and Blair kiss will be a dream sequence, maybe blair’s :)

  28. Dara says:

    No Lucy Fields on Grey’s! Stay away. Worst. News. Ever.

  29. Gossip Girl fan says:

    I want the kiss to be between Chuck and Blair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will be so confused if it’s a Dan/Blair kiss… I just don’t see anything romantic between them.

  30. Angelina says:

    Thanks for the Gossip Girl scoop. So Serena will pretend she’s not angry with Dan to get him to sign over the rights. I hope we get some good Dan and Serena scenes out of it. I was sur and IIpised by how good their scene was last week.
    As for the watercooler moment? Must be Chuck and Blair. No couple is hotter. I’m assuming the kiss is followed by a SLAP. Am I right Mr. Ausiello? ;)

  31. MSC says:

    I hope the GG hot kiss is Chuck and Blair!

  32. Prin says:

    Thanks for the GG news. Love the idea of a big kiss. I think it has to be CB. DB kissed last episode and no one really cared and all other options involve guest stars or Ivy.

  33. Miri says:

    I want something to happend with Cary and Kalinda since forever and I like the scene they have in his office it was longtime coming… All I saying is about time they denine that situation and he’s not a villian he is just an antogonistnot a bad person

  34. Tim says:

    Homeland is by far the best new show of the season. Ameican Horror Story and Enlightend are great too.

  35. C says:

    My hopes for the GG kiss:
    A CB kiss followed by another CB kiss…

    • SarahH says:

      OMFG!!!!! Chuck and Blair! It HAS to be them! I love them!

    • Emily says:

      How about a CB kiss followed by a kick from Blair’s baby? YES, PLEASE.

    • Bug says:

      Maybe a Chuck Blair kiss is followed by Chuck attempting to rape a girl, getting violent and then trading Blair for a pastrami sandwich or something. Blair doesn’t have to be with Dan but she should not be with Chuck. He only puts Blair first when it benefits him. Ugh.

      • Ashley says:

        Not true, Chuck puts Blair first often when he gets nothing out of it.

        Last episode is a perfect example. He tole Louis that he was making a mistake not trusting Blair and that he could lose a chance at love. Chuck got absolutely nothing out of that. Blair doesn’t even know he said it. That was all about Blair’s happiness. Same with telling her to marry Louis because he thought it would make Blair happy.
        Hate Chair all you want, but to say Chuck never does anything selfless for Blair is just untrue.

      • G says:

        How did getting her into Columbia benefit him?
        Prom queen?
        Letting her go to pursue her “fairytale”?
        Just a random sampling…

  36. Denise says:

    Watching Last Man Standing for the first time. Is the baby the same kid as the one on Dexter?

  37. Dominique says:

    Oh goody, Lucy Fields will be back to make Alex feel even more like crap. I’ms orry but that woman is a total witch and Alex deserves much better than her. And with Justin Chambers’ contract coming up this season, and possibly not being renewed, I’d REALLY like for Alex to ride off into the sunset with IZZIE, or if he has to’by himself. But not with that terrible woman who had no problem screwing him over and then suddenly being all clingy and pathetic.

    • Niki says:

      Alex is my favorite character on grey’s! I just hope the renew his contract and that he wants that!

    • Julie says:

      No other woman has made Alex feel more like crap than IZZIE. She was absolutely horrible to Alex (her husband!) and to her friends when they all did so much for her. If we’re going by who has treated Alex the worst/who is the bigger witch then Izzie wins hands down. This is the woman who left her husband with a note and disappeared for months because she held him responsible for getting her fired and didn’t give him the benefit of the doubt or let him defend himself after he was there for her all through her cancer fight. Oh, and the cherry on top of the crap cupcake Izzie served Alex was that he was left with her $200,000 medical bill to pay. So, I’d definitely say Izzie is the bigger bitch and has hurt Alex way more. He deseerves a hell of a lot better than Izzie – that’s for sure.

      • Agreed says:

        I never understood why Izzie had such a huge following. She was a whiner from the start. Alex is a good guy who has trouble opening up because his family life was so screwed up. He meets this girl, marries her, stand by her when she is battling cancer, watches her DIE and brought back to life only because the doctors ignore her DNR, and voices his concerns that she’s not taking care of herself (which she wasn’t). Then Izzie throws a hissie fit, leaves him, drops her medical bills on him, ignores his phone calls, shows up and plans to not even SEE HIM, only talks to him after she gets busted. Then asks him to take her back and is actually INSULTED when he tells her he deserves better than her. Everyone deserves better than Izzie. Don’t ever bring her back.

  38. Lexie says:

    Awwwww, I wanted to know if the baby was Chuck’s but I’ll take the kiss if it’s between Chuck and Blair.

  39. Molly says:

    I’m pretty sure the Baby is a Bass. As for the kiss, we all know CBers are the most passionate and loyal fanbase so it must be Chuck and Blair hot-kissing and then….Chuck-abuse? Bring that on, GGwriters, we love Old School CB. Raw passion and pure love.

  40. REN says:

    HOLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LAST WEEK’S SOA WAS CRAZY!!!!!! TONIGHT’S EPISODE WILL BE CRAZY!!!!!!! I KNOW AT LEAST 4 CHARACTERS THAT ARE IN JEOPARDY: JUICE, TARA, UNSER & PINEY. MOST LIKELY UNSER BC OF LAST WEEK. HE GOT INVOLVED DESPITE CLAY’S CONTINUAL THREATS TO STAY OUT OF IT. PLEASE DO MORE SOA SCOOPS!!

  41. will says:

    i’m thinking the GOSSIP GIRL kiss will probably be NATE/IVY basing on the spoiler photos that came out.

    • crista says:

      Navy don’t have a fanbase let alone a passionate one, will. Chuck and blair do.

    • Ashley says:

      Doubtful. They don’t have a passinate fanbase and the question was about Blair. So it’s safe to assume the kiss involves Blair. I’m hoping it’s Chuck and Blair.

  42. Alanna says:

    Brennan would never intentionally hurt Booth, so either it’s a misunderstanding or there is a very good reason for her to have found out the sex of the baby without Booth.

    Can’t wait to see what happens in response to this, especially if it’s one of Ausiello’s favorite B&B moments ever!

  43. mel says:

    Chuck and Blair, Blair and Chuck please! NEED them!

  44. Jeanne says:

    REALLYYYY hoping it’s a DAIR kiss, but I’m not sure…

  45. Jamey says:

    PLEASE tell me that the kiss on GG is NOT a Chuck and Blair kiss. They are so season 1 and 2. I WANT A DAIR KISS!! I will want to vomit if it is a CB kiss. YUCK!

  46. Amanda says:

    Maybe the kiss is followed by a kick? Please, let it be Chair!!!!!

  47. Emma says:

    I want some Homeland scoop that isn’t ratigs related! I could look that up myself!

  48. Sam says:

    Thanks for The Good Wife/Lisa Edelstein scoop, I’ve loved Lisa’s guest role and I am looking forward to seeing Celeste and Alicia working and drinking together. Should be a real hoot!
    Sad that this will be the last we see of Lisa for now though :(

  49. Shea says:

    On NCIS LA could this IA guy named Jack be Kensi’s ex-fiancé???

  50. Katie says:

    Revenge is the best new show of the season! I am so into it.

    Glad about a Gossip Girl kiss as long as its Chuck/Blair though not sure any other couple would give any sort of reaction.

    • Jeanne says:

      Oh, please. You can love CB all you want, but don’t pretend that Dair hasn’t established a HUGE fan base in the past year.

      • Yes Yes says:

        We all know that Dan and Blair have like 6 tween fangirls. Let’s get real though, it’s all about Chuck and Blair, Blair and Chuck, 3 little words, 8 letters. Everyone knows they are endgame so keep on shipping your silly little chemistry lacking Dair.
