Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on Grey's Anatomy, Bones, Parks and Rec, Revenge, Walking Dead 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

Question: You got anything good from Grey’s Anatomy on Meredith and Derek? —Jessica
Ausiello: Would you settle for something bad? Derek’s efforts to encourage a hesitant Meredith to work with him again in neurology will backfire. “It doesn’t go so well,” reveals series creator Shonda Rhimes. “I’ve been very clear — and the writers and I have had long conversations about this — that part of saving their relationship, they decided, meant they shouldn’t be working together again. And Meredith knows that, very fully. Plus, she’s really enjoying her life in general surgery. It’s Derek who has [yet] to come to terms with that fact. But he loves her and he enjoys working with her — most of the time, when she isn’t ruining clinical trials. He really enjoyed working with her, and it’s hard [for him] to think, ‘Well, that’s not going to happen again.'”

Question: I am tired of seeing David Clarke on Revenge. He annoys the hell out of me! Please tell me when he is gone from the show. —C.C
Ausiello: Conrad, is that you? I’m afraid I have some bad news. Not only will Emily’s dead pa continue to be a regular presence in flashbacks, but the upcoming episode set in 1991 will chronicle the early days of his relationship to Victoria. The big surprise? The Grayson matriarch wasn’t always such an ice queen. “Over time, she’s become a little bit more [hardened],” portrayer Madeleine Stowe tells TVLine. “Early on, you might see something that’s a little more playful, a little more fun.” The origin-heavy hour will also jump ahead to 2002 to show the “tough and rough” dynamic between fresh-out-of-juvie Emily and frenemy Nolan, previews Emily VanCamp, who adds, “We also have almost all of the take-down characters [return]. It’s really cool. It’s a great episode.”

Question: Please grace us with any scoop you have on Revenge. —Brandi
Ausiello: Fun fact: There’s a good reason Jack is holding on to that blood-soaked hoodie of his instead of lighting a match to it. “I might need it later,” hints Nick Wechsler in character. “If I need to get [Amanda] out of trouble, I might want it because I need to prove that I was there.” Meanwhile, don’t expect the bartender to swoop in and steal Emily while Daniel’s off doing time in the pokey. “He’s a good enough guy that he’s not wishing ill on [Daniel],” muses the actor. “He feels bad for him.” But, he adds, there “might be an [opportunity] now” in Daniel’s absence for a “a slightly lingering hug” between the childhood sweethearts.

Question: Any scoop on The Vampire Diaries? —Anna
Ausiello: No shocker here: Alaric is alive when the show returns this Thursday, but Meredith isn’t done messing with him. The mysterious doc makes a pretty compelling case to Elena that she may not know her “guardian” as well as she thinks she does.

Question: If I tell you that I’ve been following you since 2006, will you give me some Southland scoop? —Mooski
Ausiello: Yes, but I’m going to have my fact-checkers vet your claim. If you’re lying, I will Kerkovich the scoop from your mind. On tonight’s Southland, things get very bad — like dangerous, bloody bad — for Ben and Sammy. When TVLine visited the show on location last month, they were filming a dicey stunt sequence involving their patrol car and another automobile. “Ben goes too far on this particular case,” explains Shawn Hatosy. “There’s some fallout. We’re running from somebody who’s coming after us.” Things aren’t much better on the relationship front for the partners. “Our trust is broken,” he says. “The honeymoon is a little bit over. We have to figure out how to proceed.”

Question: I heard that the last two Hart of Dixie episodes of the season could be major for the Zoe/Wade/George triangle. Can you confirm and shed some more light on to which way this will go? —Ali
Ausiello: Here’s my carefully worded response to what is proving to be a very popular question here at Ask Ausiello headquarters: Zoe is going to have a lot to mull over this summer given what’s about to go down in her relationships with both guys.

Question: Can you please, please, please share some Smash scoop with us? —Bill
Ausiello: Someone (a very important someone) gets fired from Marilyn: The Musical in next week’s episode, but it remains unclear if the pink slip will stick. In other news, my dream scenario that has Julia pushing Ellis in front of a fast-charging subway has yet to play out on screen. Maybe producers are saving that crowd-pleasing twist for sweeps.

Question: Can you tell me anything — anything — about Castle? —Cat
Ausiello: An April episode will address a lingering Beckett-Lanie mystery. “A lot of people were questioning why Kate never called Lanie when she got out of the hospital [after being shot],” notes Tamala Jones. “In Episode 20, ‘The Limey,’ you’re going to see that reason why and a whole lot more for those two ladies. We finally get some girl time between the two! There’s a lot of confessions going on. I think what the audience has been waiting to hear Kate say – mainly to Castle – she’s [sharing with] me. ‘The Limey’ is really setting the tone for the season finale.”

Question: My birthday’s coming up this week and so I thought I’d ask for a birthday-scoop on Parks and Recreation. Any chance Ben and Leslie will be moving in together anytime soon? –Anne
Ausiello: Yes, but I’m going to have my fact-checkers vet your birthday claim. If you’re lying, I will Kerkovich the scoop from your mind and replace it with a Smash spoiler about Ellis. Regarding Ben and Les, exec producer Mike Schur neither confirmed nor denied that the lovebirds will shack up by season’s end when we caught up with him at PaleyFest 2012 last week. He did reveal that there’s trouble ahead though. “The campaign puts a little bit of a strain on their relationship, but not in a, ‘We’re gonna breakup’ kinda way,” he said. “We kept talking about if, realistically, we could cause tension between them, but then it was like, ‘Come on — look at them. They love each other too much.’ There are obviously consequences for the end of the year — regardless of whether Leslie wins or loses, there are huge ramifications for their relationship and that is something we’ll see.”

Question: Was Shane’s death on The Walking Dead the subject of this blind item from Dec. 26? —Rachael
Ausiello: Yes! And while we’re on the subject of unsolved blind items, ‘memba the one about the popular couple finally making time for the sex?! Well… I’ll get around to revealing that one at some point, too.

Question: Please tell me we haven’t seen the last of Shane on The Walking Dead. Maybe he’ll pop up in a flashback in the finale? —Graham
Ausiello: The good news: Shane will be back in the finale and all of next season. The bad news: I meant that figuratively. “Shane isn’t on the show any more but his presence is going to be felt throughout the third season and beyond,” reveals exec producer Robert Kirkman. “This is a very important character to the series. He’s almost more important to the show in death than he was in life.”

Question: I have a bad feeling that Zombie Otis will be taking part in the Walker stampede in Sunday’s Walking Dead finale. I’m right, aren’t I? —Jamie
Ausiello: Actually, you’re wrong. As Kirkman points out, “Otis, geographically, is pretty far away from [the farm] right now. And he was probably completely eaten.” A moment of silence for Otis.

Question: Any fresh intel on the setting of American Horror Story‘s second season? —Jake
Ausiello: The mental institution theory is gaining momentum, particularly in light of this little piece of news.

Question: I don’t think I can wait all the way until Thursday to get the Community scoop! Anything Jeff and Britta related?? Thanks! —Erin
Ausiello: This Thursday’s return is actually heavily weighted toward Jeff and Britta. Basically, Shirley’s wedding brings out the absolute worst in the anti-marriage zealots. (Hint: They consider doing something that would undermine the institution in ways Kim Kardashian could only dream of.)

Question: Any scoop about the Bones season finale — specifically the cryptic-sounding cliffhanger? —Izabella
Ausiello: How about the episode’s cryptic-sounding title? Sources confirm to me exclusively that the season-ender is called, “The Bite in the Beast.” Interpret away in the comments!

Question: You did a great job moderating that slightly wild Bones session at PaleyFest 2012. Did you uncover any scoop that didn’t come out during the panel? —Alicia
Ausiello: Yes! Prior to the event, Michaela Conlin revealed that a new guy will soon shake things up for Angela, who’s feeling “a little bit of distance” between the free spirit she used to be and her new mommy and wife persona. “An artist type comes into the lab,” she previews, “and brings up some things for her.” But fear not, he won’t get in the way of Angela and Hodgins’ happy ending. “It’s not marriage issues,” she assures us. “It’s really just identity issues more so for Angela.”

Question: Any information about what might take place next week on The Good Wife between Diane, Kurt and Jack? —Nikki
Ausiello: If you’re hoping to see the two men come to blows over Christine Baranski’s workahalter-ego, look elsewhere. I hear the story is more about Diane playing the field and having some fun. Lord knows the woman deserves it.

Question: Please help us get through our Grimm hiatus with some scoop about what is coming up. —Stacie
Ausiello: I have it on good authority that the season finale will feature not one but two spectacular cliffhangers. In more timely news, next time we see poor Juliette she’ll be taking matters into her own hands — literally (view photographic evidence).

Question: I’m probably asking too much but could you maybe tell me if Shelby will back on Glee? She mysteriously disappeared and didn’t even show up to Finchel’s wedding, which was weird. —Anastasia
Ausiello: No sign of her for the foreseeable future, I’m afraid. Actually, scratch that — I’m not the least bit afraid. Good riddance, I say. I was never a fan of that character.

Question: Ringer addict here. How long before Andrew finds out that Juliet was never raped and it was all a scheme cooked up by her and Catherine? —Mandy
Ausiello: It sounds like he’ll learn a piece of the truth. “He’ll certainly come into knowledge about his daughter’s involvement in this duplicitousness,” reveals Andrew’s alter ego, Ioan Gruffudd. “But as for the mom being the mastermind of the whole thing, that’s something we may not necessarily wrap up.”

Question: The latest Shameless promo suggested some pretty crazy stuff will be going down in the last three episodes. Any hints? —Tracy
Ausiello: Forget the last three episodes. A ton of crazy stuff goes down this Sunday alone, and that includes an accident, an imprisonment, a wild goose chase and a shocking reveal. Not enough? Prepare yourself for two drastically different family dinners and one of the more graphic TV births in recent memory.

Question: The Mad Men premiere is a little over a week away — please reward us steadfast and loyal fans with a spoilers! —Rachel
Ausiello: Hmm… what can I say without incurring the wrath of Weiner. Oh, here’s something: Don name-checks two iconic television characters within the first 15 minutes. And both Joan and Peggy utter the same four-letter expletive at different points in the two-hour opener. And the show is still set on the planet Earth!

Question: Any 90210 scoopage? —Joy
Ausiello: The show snagged its first mention in TVLine’s 2012 May Sweeps Scorecard, and that’s bad news for [SPOILER].

That’s a wrap! Please send questions, comments, and anonymous tips to (Additional reporting by Vlada Gelman and Megan Masters)

  1. Mya says:

    Zoe needs to wake up and see how boring George is. ZOE/WADE FTW!

    • CJ says:

      George is a good example of the Obvious Love Interest who is too boring to win in the end. The only thing that seems puzzling, though, is that once again, the Much More Appealing Love Interest seems to be an accident. Did they plan for Wade to be so much more appealing, or was it a miracle of casting/chemistry, or what?

      • Lisa says:

        CJ — my thoughts exactly!!

      • Ashley says:

        I think they planned it, they want people to root for Zoe/Wade even though there’s a triangle and even though they stay neutral about it. Leila already said they knew what they had when they cast Wilson as Wade.

      • Ashley says:

        Plus, if it was an accident IMO it would be more evenly split in who the audience roots for, and it’s not. It’s like 80% for Wade and Zoe, so that speaks for itself.

    • Jen says:

      As long as HoD gets a 2nd season and Wade gets the recognition he deserves, I will be happy.

      But seriously I have no idea, why they bother with George(or why Zoe does.) She really needs to wake up and see the awesome person right in front of her. How can you not love Wade?! (In case I didn’t make it clear enough and just so that there are no misunderstandings: Team Wade!)

      • Jamie says:

        “How can you not love Wade?” Maybe because he’s a child? That said, I am rooting for him and Zoe all the way! I do have to say, though, that I think George would be a lot more interesting with Zoe than he is with Lemon. She sucks all the energy out of the room.

        • Aura Lee says:

          Lemon is one of those tv characters that I just hate watching. I can’t ever feel any genuine emotion for her when she is upset because she’s not a nice person. Oh and Team Wade, all the way! Let George have Lemon and they can have shrill babies together.

        • Ashley says:

          Yeah, Wade’s a little immature but that’s what character development is for. Whereas nothing will make George interesting. Besides, it’s so obvious that Zoe and George have built up this idealized fantasy in their heads and George is wayyy too obvious a choice for Zoe to actually end up with. Wade has plenty of time to mature and then he’d be the perfect man for Zoe. They have everything going for them that Zoe and George don’t IMO. They have spark, fun, chemistry, they are comfortable around each other, they were friends before any sort of feelings developed. I think it’s obvious Zoe will end up with Wade in the end. That’s who I am rooting for.

      • wednesday says:

        I want Zoe to end of with Wade too. But from the sound of this spoiler, does this mean that Justin Hartley will not be on the show then. Apparently he was being cast also as ANOTHER love interest for Zoe. If the choice was between Wade and Justin, I wouldn’t know who to choose. But between Wade & George, Wade hands down no contest. George is nice guy but is better suited as a friend to Zoe. I’m trying hard not to get too excited because from the looks of things it isn’t looking good for our show. But my fingers are crossed.

        • julie says:

          Justin will be in an episode, and I think him and Zoe go to lunch or something, but he won’t really be a love interest.

    • GGMustDie says:

      Actually, George is really cute. However, as long as HoD is renewed, Zoe can end up with either one. Both could make her happy.

  2. Meg says:

    How can David Clarke on Revenge annoy the hell out of anyone? The character has, thus far, been only in snippets of the show to provide background information. He has maybe had a cumulative total of 5 minutes of screen time. This might honestly be one of the silliest “Ask Ausiello” questions I have read.

    • lorna says:

      David Clarke was innocent, he only was guilty of having an affair with a married woman. Also, Ioan’s comment about RINGER sounds like it’s not getting renewed, not a shocker, but sad.

    • G.G says:

      HAAAA! so true. I thought exactly the same thing.

    • Hermione says:

      Completely agree. He hasn’t been on screen very much throughout the season unless you count the amount of times other characters say his name. If anyone needs less screen time, it’s Declan. And I happen to really like David Clarke so shame on the random person that doesn’t like him.

      • kj says:

        I completely agree about Declan!!At least the horrible accent has gotten a little better, but wow, is he a bad actor!!

  3. UJ says:

    It does seem that ‘The Grey’ of Meredith has inherited ‘The Will of Fire’ of her mother. Talented doctor, but luke-warm partner to the Dreamy. Still love her.

    As for Revenge, still can’t decide if Emily ‘fits’ with anyone. Must be the ice-queen persona. Will she be happy when all is said and done?

    As for Ringer… I get the feeling Andrew would go insane if he knew the complete truth of everyone… lies overload.

    And finally, End of Blind item speculation… too many Boffins died this month. RIP Mike from Desperate Housewives.

  4. Brittany says:

    So are you saying that the couple having sex for the first time is on the Walking Dead?

    Carol & Daryl right? I mean, who else could that blind item refer to, although AMC isn’t a network TV show.

  5. steve says:

    i dont get how shane’s death was so pivitol that you couldnt imagine the show without him. Also if you read the interview with RK it seems like he new all along he was going to die at somepoint so its hard to think he didnt go out quite etc.

    So imo the blind item clues were kinda misleading

    • Brittany says:

      I agree, plus anyone who has read the comics knows that Shane is a goner. In fact, Shane has lasted longer than he should have, because his character doesn’t really have much of grip with the actual plot itself.

      Believe me, once they head to the prison, everyone will be going, “Shane who?”.

      • Sara says:

        I actually thought the blind had been referring to Mike on DH

        • Doug-H says:

          Mike was never a “Lead” on DH.. Only Wives in the Opening Credits… Shane was in the opening credits for TWD..

      • Emily says:

        How’s that for misleading? Blind items, I am losing faith! Everyone knew Shane had to go. It was just a matter of when. And Jon Bernthal knew his days were numbered from the time he auditioned for the role, he said so in an interview.

    • Dale's RV says:

      Because Rick and Shane were proverbial brothers, two halves of the same person, inextricably linked together: Shane is such an essencial part of Rick as he was to him. Well, that and Lori is still pregnant with Shane’s baby.

  6. Julia says:

    Finally! We haven’t gotten any good Kate and Lanie scenes since season 2!

  7. sandy says:

    Who’s dying on 90210? Raj?

  8. Mari says:

    I don’t think I can get more excited with the last episodes of Castle.

  9. Rachael says:

    WOOHOO great Castle scoop from Tamala Jones!! I was just thinking that we haven’t gotten any Kate and Lanie girl talk in forEVER …

  10. G.G says:

    Community is just too good. Too clever for the masses.
    It makes me lament other great shows such as Freaks and Geeks.

    I also think the Shane ever presence on the show will be because Lori is really carrying his baby. I mean c’mon – that is NOT Rick’s child.

  11. What’s up with the lack of Gossip Girl spoilers? We need some serious CHAIR news to show all the Dair losers how hopeless their cause is. CHAIR FANS ARE LEGION AND THE WRITERS HAVE TO LISTEN TO US! This is the only way this show can go!

    • JohnT says:

      Sweet mother of Buddha, you take your teen shows too seriously;-)

    • Michelle says:

      Give it a rest. You guys DOMINATE AA every single week. Give us all a freakin break! Why don’t you do what I did and email Ausiello and ask for your own special Gossip Girl AA. That way we can be rid of you annoying fans!

    • Dwragon says:

      If you want to be Legion, so be it! But beware of the consequences!

      Luke 8:30-33 30 And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him. 31 And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep. 32 And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them. 33 Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked.

  12. Ana says:

    I love that you hate Ellis (from “Smash”) as much as I do.

  13. Karen says:

    I’m guessing Raj will die on 90210. But I wouldn’t really mind if it were someone else besides Silver, Liam and Naomi. Those three are pretty much the only reason I’m tuning in to watch

  14. The Squatch says:

    I like Grimm… but for some reason I feel like he should be developing some sort of abilities, other than just being able to see the creatures for what they are. Perhaps a little extra speed, strength, stamina, etc? Not asking for him to become Captain America or anything. I just feel like, for all of the creatures being sooooo frightened of him all the time, he sure does get his butt kicked a lot. I feel like maybe he is losing out because he still isn’t fully embracing his Grimm side and is holding onto his Cop side a little too much instead.

    And, oh yeah, lose the girlfriend like your Aunt warned you.

    • Renee says:

      I agree with you. And when will the partner and the girlfriend learn he is a Grimm? I’m HOPING the show will progress toward a team approach kind of like Buffy was. I love that Monroe is working with him.

    • Jennifer says:

      I’m kinda hoping Juliet already knows and is one of something herself. Would make her more interesting. The ones who Nick sees seem to only show themselves during severe emotional response, usually fear or anger. I think that’s why Nick hasn’t “seen” the Captain yet, also his boss is probably able to control it.

    • allie8 says:

      I am hoping that one day we will see what the other creatures see when they look at him. How do they “know” he is a Grimm? Is it a feeling or does he appear different to them?

  15. wasted of Idina says:

    Shelby could have been a good character if
    they focus on Rachel and not Quinn/Puck
    and the baby. I knew if they brought her back
    for that it would suck.

    Rachel has to have been hurt by Shelby maybe
    they could have tied in the way Shelby treated
    Rachel as to why Rachel is being stupid about Finn.

  16. Angela says:

    They consider doing something that would undermine the institution in ways Kim Kardashian could only dream of

    Mmmkay, like I wasn’t already anxious enough for the return of “Community”. That sounds VERY intriguing.

  17. barbara says:

    Smash: I must say that I love any scene with Angelica Houston in it.
    My favorites on the show are Angelica Houston, Meagan Hilty, Christian Borle, and Jaime Cepero. They’re all scene-stealers, who can look at anyone else when they’re in the room? I’m hoping for a lot more of Angelica Houston! She’s great and her character rocks.

  18. flutiefan says:

    wow. are you 12?

  19. Drew says:

    Get rid of Michael on “Smash”! And make it stick! The whole Michael/Julia thing is gross and takes away from the show. She should lose her family over it though, because that would also deal with her annoying son… Then in a fit of rage, she shoots Ellis.

    Wow, I see this whole thing coming together rather nicely.

    • allie08 says:

      lol! And then they can do a musical number about it!

    • Jamie says:

      YES! YES! YES! Oh why aren’t there any “Like” buttons on this website for comments like EW has now? You read my mind, Drew! I kind of wish they’d toss Julia, but I know that would never happen. More Eileen and Tom and less of everyone else (Derek’s OK), and FOR GOD’S SAKE, GET RID OF ELLIS!!!!!!

  20. Dee says:

    Seems Meredith and Derek worked just together just fine for seven seasons (five years in GA time). She’s always been about the neuro and hasn’t shown much interest in any other area until the drama this year. The common medical interest has been a huge part of their relationship from the beginning. Seems like Rhimes and Company just don’t know what to do with them and instead of their usual personal make up – break up, she breaks them up professionally.

    Revenge is my new favorite show so thanks for the info.

  21. Amber says:

    It really makes me laugh how every preview for new seasons of Mad Men features scenes from previous seasons. Matt Weiner runs a tight ship when it comes to spoilers. I think your decision to not incur his wrath is a wise one, Aus. I can wait a week and a half to see what happens on Mad Men. Right now I can’t get my mind off what’s going to happen on the Walking Dead finale anyway. That is all-consuming to me at the moment.

  22. Lisa says:

    Thank you for the Hart of Dixie scoop! So glad the producers are FINALLY giving us the Zoe/George goodness that so many of us have been waiting for! I’m dying to see George and lemon call off the wedding that should never be and have Zoe and George start exploring a relationship!

    And on Smash..can you make sure Julia pushes Ellis in front of a fully loaded train? Evil like that is hard to kill! And harder to fire which is why I’m hoping it’s Ivy who gets the ax and has it stick!

    • Kinsey says:

      I must respectfully disagree with you on everything except for giving Ellis the Anna Karenina treatment. I hate that guy! Ivy is simply too good to be fired, permanently, at least. Karen is cute but boooooooooooooooring. And for HoD, I agree that George and Lemon should not get married, but IMO Zoe belongs with Wade, not George. Sure, they’re good friends, he’s been in her corner since she got to Bluebell and she clearly has feelings for him, but after awhile I see her growing bored with him. Just my two cents.

      • Lexy says:

        LOL @ the ‘so many of us’ comment. Yes, there are SO many G/Z fans, the love is just over spilling. Come on, the fanbase isn’t even divided 50/50. Wade and Z/W has the majority of the popularity, so I’m not sure where “all of you” are coming from.

        And really, the ‘town loser’? Really?! Oh, okay. He’s such a loser he helps his father out every month by giving him money when he doesn’t have to, when he’s probably short on it himself. There’s a lot more to be said about Wade than there is George, that’s for sure. I’ve not seen George do ONE thing that warrants him being ‘man of the year’ except judge EVERYONE else, when his own life isn’t even picture perfect. So, if that’s the case, I’d take that ‘town loser’ over the ‘town golden boy’ any day. And, sure chemistry is subjective, but Wilson and Rachel have it in SPADES. They shine in their scenes together, I’ve not seen that with Rachel and Scott, they just lack the chemistry that is desperately needed to make G/Z happen (if) they do. The lack of chemistry is what makes that pairing so extremely boring. I’d rather watch paint dry, or grass grow.

    • anon says:

      “so many of us”? Lmao, yeah right. More like 6 fans.

    • Andrea says:

      “So many of us”? I don’t know if you missed it, but in every single poll Zoe/Wade is always in the lead with AT LEAST 85%. The media LOVES Wade and Zoe/Wade. The writers would be simply stupid to put Zoe and Wade together.

      And really, nothing in common? That’s your argument? What do Zoe and George have in common exactly? They both lived in NYC? If that’s enough then Zoe can go find someone to be with amongst the million of people that live in the city. Certainly there will be a lot more people who far less boring than George. At least Wade has personality and brings out the best in Zoe.

    • Annabeth says:

      Hear hear, Lisa @ Hart of Dixie. Wade brings out the absolute worst in Zoe. They both act like children, and I’ve lost count of how many times she’s called him an infant. Zoe and George make a mature, natural, chemistry filled relationship that wouldn’t be based on sex. Wade, on the other hand….Thanks, but no thanks.

      • Ashley says:

        The show has done a good job of displaying the Wade/Zoe frienship and potential, they are not just sex. And if having fun is the same as acting like a child, then I’ll take that any day over George who seems to not know the meaning of fun or living. And frankly, Wade and Zoe have the potential to develop over a long period of time while George and Zoe is based on a crush and missing NY, and they will realize it’s not all it was cracked up to be. They make good friends, not romantic partners, and have zero chemistry. And btw, you act like Wade will remain the same throughout the show. He will mature as part of his natural evolution. And even Rachel Bilson has endorsed the Zoe/Wade relationship. George may be “mature” but he’s also wishy washy, judgmental, and a liar. Not attractive.

    • Ashley says:

      I’m sorry but George and Zoe do NOT belong together. They are obviously setting him up as a way too obvious love interest that won’t be the one in the end. Wade is the guy that the girl falls for over time. Wade is a little immature, but that is what character development is for. Whereas, with George I have a strong feeling that once they were together a LOT of the thrill would be gone b/c the relationship would not meet the expectations that have been built up by this crush they both have. And yes, I call it a crush b/c it’s not anywhere close to love. Zoe and Wade had a frienship first, then the feelings came over time. I’m rooting for them and I think they’ll end up together.

  23. Ryan says:

    I called the December 26th Blind Item being The Walking Dead.

  24. Charlotte says:

    So glad to see some scoop on SouthLAnd! I hope there’s a season 5!

  25. Jev says:

    I really hope that Community won’t have Jeff and Britta get married. Don’t get me wrong, totally understand that the lols would be involved, just don’t want to see an “oops, we were joking, but actually really got married!” plot. It’s overdone. (I’m sure Abed could tell you by how much.)

    • Little Scarf Girl says:

      I doubt they’re actually going to get married. It’s Community, after all. I bet it will just be played for laughs and the rest of the group will stop them.

  26. samantha says:

    “You know she’s such a fool for him, she’s got a ring around her finger, and Abed hired and Irish singer, Britta’s marrying Britta’s marrying, Britta’s marrying Jeffrey Winger” Sorry I just had to do it. lol I love that Britta and Jeff are having lots of scenes together again, they have the best banter on the show.

    • GDV says:

      Ha! I have a feeling tomorrow’s ep will be a companion piece to that season two episode. Jeff and Britta will basically dare each other into a wedding ceremony.

  27. Mindy says:

    I have decided that I love “Spoiler Alert Theatre”. More please!

  28. Amy says:

    Actually it was Meredith, not Derek (on GA) who scarified her career in Neuro (one we’ve now watched for 8 seasons) to save her marriage because she did the absolutely horrid act of trying to help Adele for Richard. It wasn’t Derek. He just sat there and pouted, treated her horribly, and wanted her fired. She made the sacrifice and he just let her because she “never gets punished” according to him. Never mind the training, the sacrifice, the money put into training to be as good as she is/was in Neuro, or the fact that she came up with the first clinical trial and when he gave up on it, she talked him back into operating which got him on the cover of a medical journal while he let her get zero credit for it. She got him to come back after he killed a patient as he drunkenly called her a “lemon” and took a bat to her engagement ring, she also walked him back into surgery so he could save Izzie Steven’s life. But hey, that’s what 8 seasons of a SL about Meredith gives us. Now inexplicably, Lexie will take over Neuro because where would Lexie be if her SL’s hadn’t already been done (and better) by Meredith prior in some form. It’s a shame. This character had been a Neuro Goddess for as long as Cristina had been in Cardio. We took a 8 season walk with her in this SL only to see it torn apart and Shonda Rhimes spinning why it has been done. Truly sad.

  29. Ashton says:

    Idina Menzel is the greatest, but they just gave her a crapy character. But I’m still hoping for an episode where Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenowealth are guest staring together. But looks like that’s just wishful thinking now…

  30. mare says:

    Uhhhhhh! U shocked me with this dead announcment for 90210! Who is going to be it!? It’s probably one of the mains! Hopefully Navid! And I hope U don’t include Raj in this!

  31. nikki says:

    Revenge – Another person who also dislikes Dacid Clarke! He is almost as useless as Declan.

  32. Charpa says:

    Even when the article has nothing to do with Gossip Girl you try to start a Dair/Chair war?
    Please, just let us read the comments without
    50% of them being about Chair or Dair for once!

  33. MGL says:

    Love George and Zoe. I am routing for them!

  34. I’m so glad the Parks and Rec folks aren’t doing the back-and-forth, break-up thing with Leslie and Ben. Realistically, yes, there should be tension from the campaign, but also realistically, they’re not going to just break up because of it. Makes it much more enjoyable to watch.

  35. Michelle says:

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR NO GOSSIP GIRL NEWS!!! Mostly because of their ANNOYING fans and ‘shippers. One happy reader here :)

  36. Kendal says:

    Someone correct me if I’m wrong but I remember reading not so long ago that Idina confirmed herself that she would be back before the finale. They need to bring Shelby back to tie up so many lose ends, it’s a wasted opportunity if they don’t.

  37. sarah says:

    I do not like Ivy and I bet she gets fired they all get tired of her and her behavior.

    I guess since Matt Davis is joining a new show on the CW they will have him be the Mystic Falls murderer. I really do not like that.

    HOD: I like Wade but he can be super immature sometimes same with Zoe, I would like to see them stop acting like school kids and just get together!

    I am so tired of Shonda messing with Mer and Der

  38. Justine says:

    Doesn’t everybody think that David Clarke is still alive? That’s gonna be the cliffhanger at the end of the season or possibly that Emily’s mother is somehow still with us and reapeears to someone by season’s end.

    • Mooshki says:

      Didn’t the writers say they were thinking about bringing him back, but then pretty much everyone on the internet said that would be a really, really bad idea?

  39. KCatty says:

    Rooting for a Wade/Zoe hookup on HOD but ultimately a Zoe/George relationship. At least, not until Wade gets his act together. Sorry, but even with the willing suspension of belief that is television, doctor + town loser = epic fail. I just don’t get how anyone would root for them as a couple. Other than chemistry, they have zero in common.

    • Annabeth says:

      Couldn’t have put it better myself, KCatty. Zoe and Wade can have sex, but if they actually tried going on dates or having meaningful conversations, I’m pretty sure it would flop. Meanwhile, we’ve seen that George and Zoe connect on a much deeper level and it’s been beautiful since day one.

      • LOL says:

        A much deeper level? Why? Please explain this connection to me. I agree that they make good friends, but they only thing I’ve seen them connect on is that they miss NY. I’m sorry, but I am sick of people saying that Zoe and Wade can’t be together b/c he’s a bartender. Please, get over this idea. Unless you are really that closeminded. Zoe and Wade have a real frienship, not just chemistry or spark. They can talk to each other, they are comfortable with each other. And Wade appreciates how amazing Zoe is. Wade’s immaturity is part of his charm, and plus that is what character development and evolvement is for. Wilson has already said that Wade would start to become a guy that is worthy of Zoe.

    • Marie says:

      So in other words you’re saying Zoe can’t date Wade b/c he’s a bartender? Wow, I thought this was the 21st century not the 1800s or some other period with a caste system. I mean, would you be saying this if Wade was the doctor and Zoe the bartender? I doubt it. Time to lose the sexism.

      And this zero in common thing is hilarious to me. Zoe and George have NY in common and their career level, that’s it. Why does that mean they belong together or have so much in common? Otherwise Zoe and George are very different. Zoe is the cynical, jaded NYorker. Geroge is not like that at all, while Wade is. The scene with Wade and Zoe not attending church illustrated that. Wade and Zoe both have issues with their fathers, and they are good frieds that are attracted to each other and comfortable w/ each other. Common interests aren’t necessary if there is communication and support.

    • LOL says:

      yeah, wade’s such a loser that he stayed up all night making gumbo for zoe, and slept in her chair when he was scared, and goes up on the roof every week to talk his dad down, and gives his drunken father money even when he doesn’t deserve it and probably can’t affor to, and all this from a “loser” bartender. wade may be a womanizer but and a bit immature but he’s honest about who he is and has a truly good heart and so much potential.

      while mr. goldenboy george is two timing Lemon and is too busy judging other people to look in the mirror at himself. he accused wade of wanting his dad’s land money for himself when in fact wade just wanted his alcoholic dad to become independent and stop mooching off him. he also wouldn’t know a good time if it smacked him in the face. he’s a liar when it comes to lemon and zoe and that speaks to his indecisive character.

  40. Vannesa says:

    Castle…can’t wait. ;) :D

  41. Charlotte says:

    Great to see some spoilers on SouthLAnd, it’s such an amazing show! And I can’t WAIT for Bones to return :)

  42. Sam says:

    The answer about Ringer sort of ruins last night’s cliffhanger…if Andrew is able to find out about Juliet’s secret, he must still be alive.

    • Doug-H says:

      There was no way they were killing off Andrew in Ringer anyway.. A bogus cliffhanger… He’s too important.. I think he will find out the truth about Bridget in the finale since it’s pretty obvious to me that this is only getting one season…..

  43. Jake says:

    Michael, I am sorry but I followed you for a really long time. However, I have noticed a major trend in your Ask Ausiello column. You are biased. I have noticed that you typically respond only to the questions about shows you personally are interested in. Seriously three questions in the same column about Vampire Diaries??? What’s up with that? I think you should team up with Matt and both write for this column, it would be great…I get a lot from Matt’s column…Sorry but just wanted to voice my opinion and I know it is just that mine…but I wanted to say it.

  44. Jason says:

    on 90210….please let it be the idiot Liam’s psychopath girlfriend, the artist formerly known and loved as Lexie, but now despised by all sane viewers. (Which, of course, means the actress is doing a great job.)

  45. sha says:

    shameless please tell that lip will go back to school and get his diploma and to college get a degree..i love these show castle and bones

  46. Soph says:

    Seems obvious its about silver as we discovered she might have the gene cancer… But they will never kill her off

  47. Mooshki says:

    “He really enjoyed working with her, and it’s hard [for him] to think, ‘Well, that’s not going to happen again.’””

    Excuuuuuse me? Do they think we don’t watch the show? This is 100% Derek’s fault, and exactly what he said he wanted. Give me an f-ing break.

  48. Mooshki says:

    Booooo! I have indeed been following you since 2006, but back in the day, you never changed the wording of the questions I sent in. I asked you if Arija Bareikis was ever going to come back to Southland. Right now I am really regretting the hundreds of times I voted for you as Sexiest Vegetarian. :(

  49. LC says:

    As long as Jeff and Britta don’t actually get married (seriously, their friendship is perfect as it is) and they play it for the LOLs, I’ll be happy!

  50. Exasperated says:

    I was happy to not have to sort through GG scoop to get my Castle and Bones. I’m still sorting through other shows I don’t watch, but if one is going to give scoop on television shows, it really should be more evenly balanced. Let’s serve all fans, not just the ones that are the most vocal.
