Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on House, Fringe, Castle, HIMYM, NCIS, Grey's, The Killing 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: Please give me some scoop on the final run of House episodes. —Matt
Ausiello: They will be Hilson-centric! “There’s going to be a lot of House and Wilson stuff as we get down to the wire,” says series creator David Shore.

Question: Olivia Wilde isn’t the only House alum returning for the series finale, is she? No way she’s the only one.
Ausiello: She’s not the only one.

Question: Would you happen to know if David Shore is still looking for ideas for the House finale? I’ve got an idea or two, and it’s received popular response via fan sites. Like I said, what would it hurt to ask, right? —Barb
Ausiello: You’ve come to the right place, Barb. Most people don’t know this, but for the past five years I’ve been helping fans deliver story pitches directly to TV’s top showrunners — all for a very nominal fee of [SPOILER]. And my [SPOILER] success rate speaks for itself. Here’s what you need to do: Email your story idea to along with a major credit card number, expiration date, security code and your full name as it appears on your billing statement. And I’ll take it from there!**

Question: Got anything juicy on the season finale of Castle? The penultimate episode even? —Ivy
Ausiello: I’ve got one word: zombies!

Question: We haven’t seen Beckett’s psychiatrist, Dr. Burke, in a while on Castle. Got any clue if guest star Michael Dorn will be making an appearance before season’s end? —Ivy
Ausiello: I’ve got one word: yes! He’ll appear in late April/early May. Hmm…. I wonder what they’re going to discuss?!

Question: Believe it or not, I only recently became addicted to NCIS. Better late than never, right? Got scoop for this late convert? —Joan
Ausiello: Don’t feel so bad. I’m only now getting around to Gunsmoke. True story. Moving on to NCIS, now that the cat is out of the bag regarding the show’s Florida wedding, we can reveal that it was Brian Dietzen clad in a blinding mint green-and-fuschia tuxedo — with ruffles, mind you — when Matt Mitovich visited the show’s set this month. “The wardrobe presents some… challenges,” Dietzen shared while in costume, prepping for a scene where Jimmy unveils the color scheme to the NCIS team. “We might have to go with a lighter zone of colors and what not.” And at the top of Dietzen’s personal “gift” registry? “My biggest hope is to have Larry Miller come back [as bride-to-be Breena’s father]…. He’s so fun to play with.”

Question: Former friends Alicia and Kalinda finally made a little headway last Sunday on The Good Wife. Please tell me that things will keep getting better and this whole tax business will bring them closer together. I need the tequila shots as much as they do and I don’t think I can take it if things blow up again. –C
Ausiello: There’s lots of Alicia/Kalinda bonding in this Sunday’s episode — and through the end of the season. Also in this week’s ep: Matthew Perry debuts as Alicia’s new nemesis, the whole house-buying drama drama takes an unexpected twist, and L/G gets a new name partner.

Question: Anything on Fringe? —Jeremy
Ausiello: Just a coy answer from exec producer Jeff Pinkner when we asked him about the casting of Henry Ian Cusick and Georgina Haig as FBI agents — the latter of which has been ID’d in some pap pics as Young Olivia (!). “We were unbelievably fortunate to have them… and they really enjoyed being part of the show,” he says. “But to tell you anything more than that would really be a betrayal to the surprise of seeing the episode.” And as fellow EP J.H. Wyman reminds, the duo appear in this season’s 19th episode, which traditionally deviates from the norm (see 2010’s musical “Brown Betty” or last year’s animated entry), “So half the fun is waiting.” Also factor in this: Joshua Jackson, when asked if he has scenes with Cusick and/or Haig, said, “I do not. For reasons I can’t tell you, I do not.” Pinkner also says that the lingering (frustrating?) question of when or whether Peter will return to his timeline will “very soon” become moot.

Question: This is your last chance to dish some scoop about Misha Collins’ return to Supernatural this Friday. Don’t disappoint me! —Julie
Ausiello: As if it wasn’t hard enough for fans to watch as the Winchesters lost their beloved Impala this season, the show is bringing back Cas sans his iconic trench coat! (He’s also missing his memories, but it’s the clothing that really matters, right?) Will Cas’ armor, so to speak, make a comeback? “I hope so,” Collins tells us. “Because it’s almost tawdry not to wear that trench coat. It just felt wrong.” But on a more serious – and alarming – note, Collins tells us Cas is no rush to get his memories back! Check back later this week for more Supernatural scoop from the former angel!

Question: Will someone from The Vampire Diaries‘ regular cast die before the season ends? —Charlie
Ausiello: If you’re asking whether Stefan will finally exterminate Klaus — and I’m hoping you are, since that’s the only scoop I have at the moment — the answer is… probably not, at least according to Paul Wesley. “Stefan may just say, ‘You know what? F— this guy,'” the actor tells TVLine with a laugh. “Klaus has become a little bit of a staple in this community, so it’s really more about getting Klaus to not be so much of a threat” rather than actually killing him. So Stefan’s going to suddenly abandon his quest to whack the big, bad hybrid after an entire season of Klaus’ tormenting and scheming to destroy him? “I’m not saying he will,” Wesley hedges, “but I think that it’s a possibility.”

Question: Do we have to wait until July 2012 for Breaking Bad‘s fifth season? —Hannah
Ausiello: You sure do, but here’s something to tide you over: The show is introducing a major new character named Lydia. She’s described as a brittle, smart businesswoman and mother who is going through a challenging time. Producers are looking for an “Amy Ryan/Jodie Foster” type for the series regular role. Ooooh, I know the perfect actress for the part: Amy Ryan! Genius idea, right?

Question: Desperate for any good Bones scoop on the season finale. —Katia
Ausiello: Remember me telling you last week that the title of the season finale was “The Bite in the Beast?” You don’t? Good, ’cause it’s now sometime entirely different! Sources confirm to me exclusively that the title of Bones‘ Season 7 capper has been changed to the far more intriguing, “The Past in the Present.” No clue what it means but I gotta be honest: It scares me a little.

Question: Can you assure me that Booth will not die in the season finale of Bones? —Sarah
Ausiello: OK, I’m not that scared. Yes, Sarah, I can assure you that Booth will not die in the season finale of Bones.

Question: What the hell happened to Katrina Bowden on 30 Rock? Is she off the show? —Richard Ausiello: Not completely, although an insider confirms that the actress is no longer under contract with 30 Rock, which means she can pretty much come and go as she pleases (she’s been shooting back-to-back-to-back movies, hence her relative invisibility from the show this season). However, that same source tells me that Bowden will make a few more guest appearances before the end of the season.

Question: Any Ryan-centric Nikita scoop! I was very happy to see him rejoin the team last week. —Cady
Ausiello: Pray extra hard that Nikita gets renewed, Cady. I’m told if the show comes back for a third season, Noah Bean (a.k.a. Ryan) will be promoted to a full-fledged series regular.

Question: How did Toby know how to contact Dr. Sullivan in the finale of Pretty Little Liars? If she was that easy to locate, wouldn’t the girls have found her already? —Lori
Ausiello: We put your burning question in front of exec producer Oliver Goldstick, who explains, “Toby hiding his valiant effort to protect Spencer was very connected to Jenna because he really was hoping that if she was indeed treacherous, he could find something from the inside. So, that’s what that was about. All of the loved ones of the PLLs were aware of Dr. Sullivan, and her sudden disappearance from Rosewood would have sparked interest and curiosity among them. Again, Toby had been clued in that someone was torturing the girls, so he made the connection that that person could have been holding Dr. Sullivan at bay. I can’t explain all of that to you now — it will certainly unfold — but he knew there was a time she could come back and confirm who indeed was tormenting the girls. Obviously, Mona was seeing Dr. Sullivan, too, if you remember the episode where she was looking through her files and realized who ‘A’ was.”

Question: Will Raylan and Winona reunite on Justified? —Arnell
Ausiello: I suspect you’ll find your answer here.

Question: What can you share about the season finale of How I Met Your Mother? —Gene
Ausiello: Almost everything but the punch lines, actually. In “The Magician’s Code,” we flash back to Barney’s youth — and learn that his magic teacher was giving the ol’ hocus pocus to his mom. We also flash back to Robin’s childhood and find out she has a history of pulling Winonas (you know, shoplifting). And we flash back to Quinn’s youth, during which a school project required her to interview a sort of wilting Gypsy Rose Lee. Also, it sounds like Barney and Quinn are taking off together, and someone winds up in the hospital.

Question: Do you got any info about the new season of The Killing? I’m dying; April can’t get here soon enough. —Kristal
Ausiello: Season 2 picks up immediately after the finale, with Linden, having skedaddled off the airplane, learning about Richmond’s shooting via an airport TV. Holder meanwhile is still riding around with the mysterious someone — soon revealed — who hooked him up with the fake photo that triggered the councilman’s arrest. In fact, Holder’s agenda in sealing Richmond’s fate is immediately confirmed, and it just may surprise.

Question: Megan Mullally has been a fantastic addition to Fox’s Breaking In. I guess that’s more of an observation than a question. Sorry! —Robert
Ausiello: That’s OK — I’ll answer your non-question, anyway. An upcoming episode, tellingly titled “Heathers,” will put your gal, Veronica, front and center. In it — just like in the cult classic movie that cast Winona Ryder opposite Christian Slater as another Veronica, Mullally’s character runs afoul of some mean girls named Heather. In this case, they’re an old gal pal who’s out for revenge — and, scarily, a big cheese at Contra’s parent company — and her hot-to-trot assistant. Pass the corn nuts!

Question: You reported a while back that Dana Delany was set to return to Desperate Housewives before the end. Um… where is she? —Stefan
Ausiello: Um… Not really sure what’s going on there. She was confirmed to return, but her latent lesbian character Katherine has yet to turn up in any of the scripts. And time is running out.

Question: I’m happy to take a New Girl scoop off your hands. —Pam
Ausiello: Hell hath no fury like Cece’s East Indian nana scorned. In an April episode, Schmidt accompanies Cece to the Old Folks Home to visit her grandmother (played by Merchant Ivory vet Madhur Jaffrey), and gets a stern talking-to from the tough old cookie. Basically, she threatens him with a horrible death if he breaks her granddaughter’s heart.

Question: Any update on the Grey’s Anatomy contract situation? —Kim
Ausiello: Nothing official, but perhaps a clue can be find in this fresh batch of intel I just procured: According to a source, the medical boards don’t go well for at least two of the show’s docs — one gets a ginormous, stress-induced spontaneous nosebleed (mid-test!) and another fails the first of three sections when he arrives late.

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

  1. Will says:

    Regarding Grey’s, I’d say April gets the stress induced nosebleed and Alex arrives late.

    • Bott says:

      I think its Avery who is late, and Christina with the STRESS induced nosebleed!

    • MaggieM says:

      The stress induced nosebleed screams like Kepner, and the one who is going to be late might be Avery.Alex also,but if Sandra,Ellen and Justin don’t sing up their contracts for another season at least they can leave the show with some dignity and as doctors who are going to have successful careers. And if Avery and Kepner are the failed residents,this accident could lead to a story arc for both of them,which will continue in S9.May be at some point in S9 they will be able to resit their board exams.

    • Diane says:

      Absolutely April and Alex

    • Carla says:

      I was also thinking April with the nosebleed, but maybe that’s too obvious, and it’s Cristina instead? And Mere, Alex and Cristina better pass their boards, I couldn’t stand seeing anything else happen after spending almost 8 years with these characters.

  2. Ryan says:

    Nice try, Ausiello. Lily ends up in the hospital to give birth, right?

    • Kara says:

      That’s what I was thinking.

    • Steph says:

      Didn’t even think of that! How did that not occur to me? You’re probably right. I was freaking out there for a second, haha!

    • Mal says:

      Actually, no, it was reported quite some time ago that happens before the finale, like one or two episodes beforehand. But just because someone’s in the hospital doesn’t mean that it’s dire- season three or four’s finale saw Ted in the hospital after getting in the car accident, but he was completely fine.

      • Mal says:

        From EW (Sorry, Aus!)

        In an upcoming episode where Lily’s in labor (that will air before the finale!) the gang will distract Lily from the pain of labor by telling her stories. Twenty-two stories to be exact — yes, math-letes, that’s one for every minute of airtime! And I’m told the stories are as random as can be and take place at different times during the gang’s time together — and apart.

  3. farsia2010 says:

    in the Grey’s scoop you said :
    When HE arrives late
    does that mean Karev or Avery? pls pls pls nor Karev, this guy has been beaten up enough through this show!!!!

    • JB says:

      Well considering they are the only 2 male docs taking boards, it is highly likely that it’ll be one of them, and it could be either one of them. Could be Alex cause the writers obviously enjoy beating him up, or could be Jackson cause he & Mark could have a wild night out before the boards. I’m going to say Avery simply because Karev seems more likeable and the fans of GA would want to see him succeed.

      As for the nosebleed, I have no idea, so I’m gonna say Mer cause it would be unexpected

  4. Kate says:

    I’m so glad to read that Beckett’s therapist will be back on Castle. After that promo last night for next weeks episode, Castle may want to find one as well… The rest of the season sounds like it’s going to be both stressful and totally AWESOME!!!!!!!!

  5. Liall says:

    Well Lisa Edelstein is not coming back to the House finale so i don´t care who else is coming back

    • missy says:

      And who cares that you don’t care? Seriously, crazy LE fans need to STFU.

      • Shepherd says:

        Obviously you do. But you tried though ;).

        • missy says:

          LOL, no, I don’t. I don’t even understand why LE fans comment here. I thought they moved on, but it seems they still have to get a life.

          • Tania says:

            What’s there to understand, missy? They comment because they can and they should if they want to. Are those types of comments silly? Sure. In fact, I find them immature. However, it’s how they feel.

            Maybe you should move on yourself. Just scroll down to the next comment. Stop telling people to STFU just because your bothered by them, in this case, an LE fan. You sound immature when say things like that. Move on…get a life missy. You’ll feel better. ;)

      • I agree. If they don’t want to come back wtf?

    • Emgee says:

      Yes, we all wish Cuddy was coming back; But she’s not. Get over it. Or quit watching and quit coming here to complain. The rest of us are sick of it.

      • Saint Alicia says:

        Nah, I like to think there’s an illusory correlation between how much people b-tch and how poorly House does in the ratings. Let’s see that demo at 1.5 for the finale!
        Also, FYI, just because people are interested in watching the show fail, doesn’t mean they’re interested in actually watching the show.

        • Emgee says:

          “An illusory correlation”? Big words for such a small mind. I think you’re hoping for a 1.5 rating so it will match your IQ.

          • Saint Alicia says:

            Oh bless you, child. Why don’t you mosey on over to google before you sound any more ignorant.

          • Emgee says:

            Why don’t you go watch a show you might understand. Something along the lines of Blue’s Clues.

          • Saint Alicia says:

            ^^That’s just precious. Thought you were going to be wittier than this, but oh well… Stay in school.

          • Emgee says:

            Alicia, do your parents know you’re up past your bedtime and fooling around on their computer?

          • Saint Alicia says:

            ^^That’s SAINT Alicia (if you’re nasty ;)). And ha, ha, joke’s on you—I don’t even have any parents!

          • Emgee says:

            No, I’m just going to continue to call you Alicia. Or dumb***.

          • Tania says:

            Saint Alicia, act your age…not your shoe size.

    • Liz says:

      I don’t care if LE comes back. I’d rather have Stacy come back. Or Hector, the dog. Or anyone else. Anyone but LE.

      • Elizabeth says:

        I love Lisa Edelstein and Cuddy.

        The show will always have a hole for me without the proper closure of the House and Cuddy relationship. It’s too bad.

  6. Michael Sacal says:

    Maybe Cusick and young Olivia appear in a flashback set in the past of Over There, when the FBI became Fringe Division (the FBI must have existed Over There before the night Walter took Peter, and it wasn’t until after that that Waltenrate turned into Fringe Division. There had to have been a transition from one organizatio to the other, so while there may not be an FBI Over There now, it doesn’t mean that was always the case).

    • Fringespoiler says:

      She will play Etta, or better Ella, as in 2026 the young FBI agent was called Emlly and turned out to be Ella as well.
      And you know beautiful Anna Torv can easily pass for a 20 something Olivia, no need to be replaced, not if John Noble gets to play Walter at 40, certainly not if she can play 80 year old Nimoy and every age Olivia and why replace the best actress on tv?
      Josh Jackson did not play with them, because he needed to do a film , as the showrunners elsewhere say that the cast loved working with the guest-actors.
      May be if there will be a season 5 they will shoot in Australia?
      and I think I know what 4.19 might look like, and I hope I am right.
      One clue David Bowie.

      • Henry says:

        Josh Jackson was available to film episode 19 if he was needed. At this stage, we only know of a few characters in episode 19, due to filming exterior scenes. So, for all we know the regular cast could still appear in this one.

        • Fringespoiler says:

          Josh Jackson says himself that everyone , mostly the fantastic Anna Torv and John Noble had to adjust for his little film.
          He signed the filmcontract october/nov, everything in this season after probably 4.10 is being adjusted for our superstar
          4.17 and 4.18 were filmed around his schedule, as he pleases.

          You can be very certain that Anna Torv and John Noble will have offers, but are committed to Fringe, imagine if they would do the same?
          And yes I think that everyone else will be in 4.19., as everyone else is doing all the hard work that gives him the credibility.

          Jackson should not have come back in season 4 if he has so much disrespect for his co-stars.
          Saddest thing is that he is even allowed to pretend to be a writer, and thinks he is..
          Even sadder that the media is obsessed by him, see Wondercon.

          • Fringespoiler says:

            BTW. Josh Jackson better be available, he is the most expensive one on the cast, gets paid for doing nothing. Would make a nice cut on the budget without him, maybe season 5 as 4.19 is supposed to be a set up for season 5?
            If actors on series are doing films while the series is being made, it is always disrespectful to the oher cast, as they are forced to adapt.
            In this case, you can be certain that Jackson fans will once again attack Anna and Seth when he will not be much in 4.17 and 418, where he was not availbale when needed, but everyone else had to be availlable at his services and command.

  7. Emgee says:

    Hmmm, Olivia Wilde “NOT the only alumni returning for the finale.”

    Well, let’s see:
    Cuddy is out and so is Cameron.
    Kutner or Amber are possibilities if the belief that House is going to die is true.
    I suppose Sam is a possibility, but I wouldn’t really consider her an major alumni.
    Some of the other fellows are possibilities I suppose.
    Sela Ward as Stacey? Chi McBride as Voegler? David Morse as Tritter? They seem more likely choices than the other fellows.

  8. Brad says:

    Are you sure that Katrina Bowden’s contract on 30 Rock wasn’t picked up in some capacity? In the episodes she has appeared this season, she has been credited as “Starring” in the after-intro credits like she always has been when she appears in the episode.

    • Will says:

      Have we been watching the same episodes, I have not seen Katrina Bowden at all this season. Better question though, where is Cheyenne Jackson?!?!?!

      • Brad says:

        She was in the “The Tuxedo Begins” where her role was simply handing Liz a piece if paper and saying that someone called. She also appeared in “Leap Day” in a non-speaking role standing in front of Pete when they were all standing around the writers table before the opening credits.

        She was also credited in “Standards and Practices” even though she didn’t appear because her scene/s were likely cut.

  9. tahina says:

    House finale: both, H&W end up on the road..destiny ??

  10. JRose48 says:

    Megan Mullally has NOT been a good addition to Breaking In. She’s hasn’t added anything to the show and she’s really annoying.

    • bobo jones says:

      Agree 100%, I’ve stopped watching because of her.

    • The Squatch says:

      I agree as well. I don’t mind the blonde, British character so much though (sorry, can’t remember her name). I wish they would have brought back Trevor Moore’s character as the Master of Disguise. Kind of glad “Dutch” is gone too though. Never liked the character much. Mostly because I think Michael Rosenbaum just wasn’t right for that part.

    • Mal says:

      Agreed, she’s the worst part of the show now. But I also agree with The Squatch- the blonde Brit isn’t so bad.

    • meleliot says:

      Thank you JRose48! Finally, someone said it. I liked Breaking In so much better last year. I love MM, but her character seems bipolar.

    • Andrew says:

      Megan Mullally has ruined the dynamic of the Contra team and Breaking In.
      The best part of the first season was Dutch, and now the only redeeming quality left of the show is Odette Annable.
      I was glad that they saved Breaking In from cancellation, but if this is what the show is now, they never should have bothered.

  11. Kara says:

    Regarding TVD, I am too invested in Klaus’s character at this point, I agree with Paul I think he has become a fixture of sorts. At least I hope so, Joseph Morgan has done wonderful things with his character. And on a side note I did love Stefan and Klaus’s angstly bromance, I don’t think they’ll ever be friends but maybe frenemies?

  12. bluestockinginc says:

    Wouldn’t a Castle zombie episode be better suited to Halloween?

    • Rebecca says:

      I think it’s in reference to Jennifer Beals’ character Sophia coming ‘back to life’.

    • Jessica says:

      I heard someone is coming back from the dead. I think its either Johanna, Montgomery, or Lockwood. I think its johanna or montgomery though. I can’t wait for the finale, its going to be epic!!!!!

  13. Restless says:

    Castiel not in a hurry to get his memories back?! =O

  14. Emma says:

    For Greys you say “He arrives late”, I really hope it’s not Alex, so want him to pass and get the Peds fellowship!!

  15. Grey’s – 2 docs mmm
    ginormous stress-induced nose bleed could be either Cristina (marriage crisis stress) or April (chief resident stress, ER in tatters)
    when HE arrive’s late well it can only be Jackson or Alex really hope it’s not the later as he has already had the failed SL remember back to season 2 they all helped him study.
    Cristina, Jackson and April are the only one’s not to fail anything as yet.
    Meredith will pass with flying colours and wouldn’t be surprised if she specialize’s in multiple specialities.

  16. Bee says:

    hm.. arriving late is totally an alex thing, but it could be avery and april (nose bleed) who are left back. the only other nose-bleed contestant is cristina cus of the stress factor, but i doubt it. but sarah drew and jesse williams aren’t even originals so does that mean they fail and remain residents while the other 3 pass and potentially leave the show/work elsewhere? looks like it.

  17. Babygate says:

    Grey’s…the nosebleed sounds like something that would happen to April. But Sarah Drew’s contract is not up, neither is Jesse Williams so they won’t be leaving. And Justin was quoted as saying that he has kids to put through college so he’s not leaving. Although I am pretty sure he’s the one running late. The only actors that have mentioned wanting to leave at some point are Ellen, Patrick and Sandra. Patrick has said he will return on a part-time basis, as long as he has enough time off to dedicate to his racing and other endeavors. Ellen sounds like she wants to come back but for the right price and whether or not ABC is willing to pay it remains to be seen. Sandra has been awfully quiet. I’m more concerned about her leaving. I’ll miss Mer if she leaves but not too much. There are a lot of interesting characters that are being underutilized. But Sandra, she can’t leave. It wouldn’t be the same without Cristina.

    • Mal says:

      To be fair, failing the boards isn’t the only way of getting rid of a character. Alex, Mer and Cristina could ALL pass the boards, and then be offered attending positions in different hospitals.

  18. Matt says:

    My gues on the Grey’s docs
    Nosebleed=April. Just seems like her.
    Late=Alex (between him and Avery he seems like the most likely to be late and we know it’s a he)

  19. Jillian says:

    I can’t wait for Bones!!

  20. kjess says:

    I would guess that if Katherine was coming back to Wisteria Lane, it would have been for Mike’s funeral. If she didn’t show up for that, I don’t see what else could bring her back.

  21. Saint Alicia says:

    Yay for the Kalinda/Alicia news! Be still my heart :’D

  22. Mari says:

    I’m happy that Beckett’s psychiatrist will be back, I really loved their scenes together.

  23. Mel says:

    Oh Michael you have outdone yourself this week, although, now you have set the bar so high each week you must continue to surpass it. I am so happy to have all my shows back from there couple of weeks break, and some snazzy spoilers along with it :D

  24. Cheryl says:

    Hope Castiels stay is the one episode and his return for proper closure and conclusion as Singer promised and then he is gone for good this time . The show is finally getting its act together after so long and back to being the journey of Sam and Dean. They are this shows heart and soul

    • RJ says:

      No way–we need Cas back as regular. He makes the show better in support of the boys.

      • I totally agree. Misha Collins really added something to the show and he’s missed greatly by the majority of the fans. I hope he comes back as a regular in Season 8.

      • Jessie says:

        Hmm, let’s hope if he returns in season 8 they explore the Cas/Sam and if Bobby returns Cas/Bobby dinamic a bit more or even Cas/Crowley would be fun. If they want Cas to be an independant character they have to stop reducing him to just being Dean’s little helper.

        • Restless says:

          Agreed, I adore and miss Castiel: Make Misha a regular again! :)
          And also agree more interactions outside of Dean would be loved. Especially in regards to Sam/Cas -shameless Sassy & Wincestiel shipper-

  25. Audrey says:

    I love you, Ausiello, for those Castle scoops. Got anything more regarding those zombies!?!

  26. as says:

    loved the NCIS scoop this time around – hope you find out more about Jimmy’s wedding….

  27. robinepowell says:

    I’ve been waiting all season for the return of Katherine on DH. It was officially confirmed and now Marc Cherry hasn’t mentioned her since last fall. What a bummer! :(

  28. JJ says:

    *GASP* Fletch lives full-time next season! Yes! Need a regular dose of Noah Bean on the screen. Ausiello – you are really setting me up for even more disappointment if Nikita doesn’t get picked up.

  29. Olivia says:

    Oooh, interesting scoop about Ryan becoming a regular next season for Nikita. Oh god, please let it get picked up it’s one of the best shows on tv right now.

  30. Alicia L. says:

    Jennifer Morrison is not out! I do think it is more likely that it’s Amber Tamblyn though! Though I think if LE isn’t returning they need to at least get JMo back!

  31. D says:

    I think Jeffrey Wright might be coming back to House; I believe he did an interview with TV Line and explicitly mentioned that possibility.

  32. SpoilerQuestions says:

    Can you put the name of the show before the questions please? It’s annoying when I start reading a question to find out what show it is about and the question contains spoilers for a show I haven’t caught up on.

  33. Deena says:

    Leave to Ausiello to find the 1 person who likes the addition of Megan Mullally on Breaking In. It’s a completely different show, which is bad enough, but she is torturous to watch. I tried. I REALLY tried to stick with it but I just can’t after tonight’s episode. Too bad, as the show had so much potential.

    • bobo jones says:

      Why does it always seem to happen that when a show is saved from extinction, it has to be changed in some major way that erodes the original quality that made us watch it in the first place?

    • Andrew says:

      I’m thinking the comment was a plant. I just can’t imagine that anyone likes the show more than they did in season one.

  34. m says:

    glad to read fletcher will bcome a regular. I jst dnt want the writters to have hm and nikita hook up they have like brother/sister relationship

  35. Looks like How i Met Your Mother is going from comedy to dramaedy the way this spoiler sounds. I wonder if robin is the the one going to the hospital and that will bring her and barney back together again and finally getting rid of quinn once and for all.

  36. Erica says:

    :) awww yeah House and Wilson!

  37. Luckyfamilyguy says:

    Why couldn’t Joshua Jackson just say that he won’t be in the episode?

  38. matt says:

    Attn. ABC/Grey’s A….. please give Miss Oh something interesting to do on the show other than worry about a foolish male Dr (please just let them sign papers for the big D)! Sandra Oh has so much talent & the creators of the show are just giving her nothing!

  39. Carrie says:

    I will keep my fingers crossed that “Nikita” will be renewed because I really like Ryan. I wouldn’t mind if she hooked up with him and forgot about Michael for a while.

  40. Michael says:

    Oooh I bet the new Kudos character on Breaking Bad is Gus’ widowed wife!

  41. Michael says:

    I mean Lydia character, not kudos

  42. Kelly says:

    How anyone can find what Megan Mullally has done to Breaking In enjoyable is beyond me. She has RUINED the entire show. Ugh

    On a positive note, I <3 Spoby on PLL!

  43. Love the scoop about Supernatural. Cas being reluctant to regain his memory will be interesting in light of his fractured relationship with the Winchesters. Looking forward to that playing out.

    I actually hope they bring back Castiel/Misha Collins as a regular if there’s a season 8. I think the biggest missteps they made this season were killing off Castiel (obvs we know now he wasn’t actually dead) and Bobby Singer. I get that they wanted to go back to basics, but they could have done that by doing more Monster of the week stuff, but keeping Cas and Bobby, at least as semi recurring characters. Part of the beauty of the ongoing story was that it started out with two brothers who really only had each other, but over the years they built this little surrogate family around them, consisting of an angel with Asperger’s syndrome and a curmudgeonly old hunter. The two brothers against the world thing worked in the early seasons, but now that it’s back to just them after having their little family, it makes the show seem really really bleak, like what exactly are they still fighting for? I feel like every week they’re about to Thelma and Louise themselves off a cliff or something, and without anyone else to fight for and rely on, it kinda seems like they might as well.

    • Jen says:

      I hope they don’t bring him back as a regular next season. Having him as a guest star would be a better strategy. Use him when he is needed/has an actual role is the storyline of the episode he appears in, instead of just giving him a short scene here and there (where he just pours Dean a drink, or he says he’s busy and can’t help) cause Misha has to be in a certain number of episodes. Quality is always better than quantity.
      Not to mention I don’t think they have the budget for any regular/recurring guest stars, and if Misha is a guest star instead of a regular he could also at the same time get some guest roles on other shows.

      • How can they not have the budget? They had the budget before when Cas was a regular during seasons 5 and 6, and Bobby has been a regular since like season 4 all the way up until he got killed off this season. I find it hard to believe their budget would have changed that drastically in six months.

        Also I don’t know about you, but I never found any of Castiel’s scenes lacking in quality. They were always about something, whether furthering the plot or providing comic relief or being a friend to Dean. I’m sure they could write new stories for his character that would give him plenty to do besides being Dean’s bartender.

        • Jen says:

          Shows get more expensive the longer they run due to the lead actors getting a pay rise, the writers becoming producers … (which is also why there is less CGI in the episodes, less classic rock, and IMO why Misha became a guest star again)
          And Bobby was not a reccuring guest star, he was a guest star (Beaver was offered the recurring title in season 5, but he refused since it meant he would have to spend the whole shotting season in Van). The difference is that a recurring star is paid more, but he has to be available for the whole season, while a guest star is cast episode by episode – and can go to castings when he is not in an episode.
          And I have to disagree with you on the quality of Castiel’s scenes, especially in the first half of season 6. It seemed like the writers didn’t really know what they want to do with Cas.
          But I admire your faith in the writers “could write new stories for his character”. IMO they hardly manage to keep continuity of the main arc and Sam and Dean storylines going (if they get any and they aren’t dropped all of the sudden) at the same time – which is probably why we have so many filler episodes this year.

    • hlots11 says:

      Agreed. Also, with more than two characters, you have more story options. At some point, “literary symmetry” just becomes code for “ran out of ideas, doing the same thing with the other character”. You have to have consistent, peripheral characters keep a show interesting. Every buddy/partner show has them. If you keep killing them off, there’s no character development and no relationship development, and therefore no vested interest in the welfare of the other characters.

  44. Lucy says:

    Michael! Please! A spoiler about Cary (The Good Wife)! Don’t tell me that they’re going to do nothing with him for the rest of the season!

  45. PLEASE GIVE US SOME GOOD CHAIR SCOOP SOON! Anything to get the disgusting taste of Dair out of my mouth! Has there ever been a worse TV couple!?

  46. Djesus says:

    House’s mom is also coming back in the finale.

  47. Sally says:

    I really wish it was Cameron who comes back for the House finale, but since we know that it’s not going to happen (still hoping for it though), my money is on either House’s mom, Stacy or Lydia. Or maybe Amber’s ghost? We’ll see… Nevertheless, yay for a Hilson finale! I don’t ship them in the romantic/sexual sense, but I adore the Hilson friendship. Can’t go wrong with that!

  48. Karen says:

    Love the castle and bones scoop so cant wait to see how things turn out

  49. Becky says:

    I appreciate your diversity when it comes to handing out spoiler info. We’re a fickle bunch. I understand that. I apologize in advance for yelling, but, WHAT MUST ONE DO TO GET SOMETHING ON PERSON OF INTEREST?!?

  50. Sally says:

    Where is smth about DAIR?
