Matt's Inside Line: Scoop on House, Grey's, Once Upon a Time, Good Wife, Nikita and More

What do you “C” in House‘s future? What’s going on with the Grey’s Anatomy gang’s job hunt? How great is this Sunday’s Good Wife? Will Rumpel reunite with his son? Read on for those scoops plus other teases from TV’s hottest shows.

House | Are you sitting down? Because I’m going to kick off this week’s column by dropping on you the seemingly telltale title of the episode Hugh Laurie will be directing. But first, remember that David Shore told Ausiello that the final four episodes will lay the foundation for the show’s grand finale. Also know that Laurie is going behind the camera for the first of that stretch. Now, factor in that the launch of that formative arc is titled… “The C Word.” Will someone, perhaps House himself, be diagnosed with cancer as the drama draws to a close? Or could the “C” perhaps refer to Cuddy? (Though Lisa Edelstein is not due for an encore, perhaps House gets wind of a major life change for his ex through the hospital grapevine?) Share your speculation on that potent title in “C”omments!

Grey’s Anatomy | Previously, TVLine scooped that your favorite Seattle Gracers will soon be hitting the job interview circuit, hoping to woo (or be wooed by) rival hospitals, in the event they don’t (or can’t) stick with the one they’ve called home. And while that story point would seem designed to afford Shonda Rhimes an easy out in the event that any original cast members don’t ink new deals beyond this season, she maintains this was always the plan. “Every kid going for an attending spot or a fellowship … would be out there all over the country interviewing, and that’s what they’re doing,” she told me. As for the big picture, she says the job hunt arc “is setting up a lot of what’s going on at the end of the season, and it also weighs very heavily on them” – as well as on longtime viewers. “You really get a sense of nostalgia, that this is the ‘graduating class’ that might not be together anymore. It’s really beautiful to watch our actors portray, and it’s been wonderful to write.”

Once Upon a Time | Many of you have asked if and when we will see Rumpelstiltskin’s son again. Well, that moment comes in Episode 19, titled “The Return.” As Robert Carlyle told us of the late-April installment, “It goes back to the moment he became Rumplestiltskin — and [his son] can’t handle this person his father [has become]. He wants me to give up the power.” Alas, that is much easier said than done. (Or as Rumpel would say, “Things always come with a priiiice.”) “He has to be stabbed through the heart to give away that power, so that can never really happen — but something else does,” Carlyle teases with a (non-maniacal) laugh, adding his own, “Dot, dot, dot….”

Breaking In | This just in… Professional skateboarder and sometime actor Tony Hawk (pictured, right) will be guest-starring on Fox’s sophomore comedy as… himself, when he approaches Contra Security about helping him safeguard his home. Hawk’s previous TV roles include Last Man Standing and CSI: Miami.

The Secret Circle | One reader tweeted at me a question about when we’ll next see Cassie’s grandmother, and whether she’ll have all of her memories back. As you may have since surmised, after a false start or two, we will see Jane tonight – though the memory issue sounds like it could be a sticky one. “Like with everything on this show, that’s complicated,” series boss Andrew Miller tells TVLine. “She’s still not in great shape, but Cassie will turn to her for help in a way that no one else can help her. We’ll deal with her health issues then.”

Smash | If you find it a bit apparent that Tom will in one way or another jilt John-the-lawyer and warm up to Ivy’s sports-loving gay bestie, Sam… well, you’ve obviously watched sufficient amounts of TV, and know full well how these things work. Because when I ran Tom’s obvious love/hate thing for the chorus boy by Megan Hilty, she replied, “Oh yeah… That will get very interesting.” P.S. Did you hear about Season 2?

Nikita | Hail to the Chief… soon! The CW spy-drama is looking to add a POTUS to its ranks for the end of the season, when the Commander-in-Chief himself is threatened by Division — an organization which not-too-surprisingly he has never heard of. And the threat is no idle one, mind you. Rather, Mr. President will find himself blackmailed with a powerful weapon that could put not just the U.S. in jeopardy but rock the entire geopolitical climate. Which fiftysomething actor out there is possibly up to that task?

The Good Wife | You may have heard many raves about this Sunday’s episode, which introduces Matthew Perry as a not-so-friendly legal foil for Alicia. And now you can add my voice to the chorus. The Blue Ribbon Panel storyline that brings Alicia together with Perry’s Mike Kresteva – she steps in for Diane on a panel that looks into Internal Affairs concerns – is fantastically entertaining, to the point that you’ll hate when it ends. All the while, Alicia is also juggling the bid on the house that she, Peter and the kids used to call home – the “flashbacks” she has to their sweet, suburban existence will Break. Your. Heart — as well as the mysterious matter that landed Kalinda in the IRS’ crosshairs. (Watch for G-woman Lana Delaney to figure into that story in a delicious way.) Elsewhere, the fight to fill Will’s seat as a name partner just might come down to a coin flip. Or not. One of this season’s very best episodes, for sure.

If there’s a show you’d like the Inside Line on, email mattmtvguy@gmail.com, and maybe it’ll get some love the next time around! (Additional reporting by Vlada Gelman)

  • C-word: It will be very likely: Cancer but why should it only mean Cuddy, it could also mean Chaos, Chase or Cameron. STOP with this stupid cuddy promotion. All the other have fans too.

          • No really. And even if that´s true, this year has been much worse than past years. A 30-40% drop doesn´t have anything to do with the show getting old.

            Comment by Narciso – March 23, 2012 09:02 AM PDT  
          • I always wonder at those two extreme camps, neither which are fully right, that Cuddy’s departure was irrelevant to the series or, on the other extreme, that Cuddy’s departure is the sole reason the show is clearly failing this season. Cuddy’s departure certainly had a noticeable impact on the show. Even to the airing of the most recent episode I’ve observed random House fans on Twitter mention missing her, saying the show isn’t the same without her, and on and on. Her character was very popular and well-loved. That being said, she isn’t the only reason the show is in this situation.
            There are the show’s implacable TPTB who ignore their fan’s concerns and requests to the point of being ridiculous, for instance. You can’t please everyone all the time but you can throw the fans a bone on occasion. It costs you very little to nothing and gains you respect and understanding from fans who appreciate that you care enough to bend when you can. A good show runner knows when to bend and when to hold firmly to what he wants. I think DS used to be like this but at some point he just gave up and started writing and show running for himself alone. As evidenced by the many requests for favorite characters coming back, etc. and seeing DS’s response of ignoring them and bringing back only the ones he favored and wanted back. If their fans had been treated differently at this point they could be united, like Chuck fans or Fringe fans, fighting for their show.
            Bigger issues like sloppy characterization, sloppy and unsatisfying handling of old and new storylines, unlikeable characters, keeping characters in the same place without any growth or even any real change in circumstances in their lives, losing other favorite characters like Cameron, or Amber, keeping characters who people aren’t that fond of and foisting them down the fan’s throats, like 13 (who I always liked but I liked them all) or Dominika. The show used to be tighter and have more interesting medical stories as well, and it used to balance House’s extreme negativism with good humor. The show isn’t really funny these days and is mostly just depressing or boring. They make big faux pas like the car crash, which was obviously unpalatable to most people (or most people I read after the finale), and make excuses for it and defend it. They saw how much it hurt them, hurt the main character who depended on a delicate balance to make him likeable, and told everyone essentially, ‘we’re not wrong, you’re wrong.’ It’s one thing writing a character doing this, it’s another defending him. At the beginning of the series their treatment of women had a playful teasing but respect to it, these days women, characters and actors, are seen on the show as being expendable and as objects. When fans were upset about Huddy breaking up, a very popular pairing for the show and a very popular pair amongst all show pairings, the show runners mocked and patronized them and made them feel like it was the fan’s issue, and when Lisa was lost from the show, HL made no comment and showed no care about it to the fans until he was asked about it months later and the show runners, who promised they would write a statement about the loss of one of the show’s most popular characters, which would’ve helped, never ended up keeping their word.
            There’s so much more I’ve seen but these are some highlights. It’s interesting seeing such a huge show slowly destroy itself through so many little things (some big) all ending up here, but also a little sad.

          • They have a fair amount to do with cancellation. I’m sorry but being 30-40% down on the previous year is huge. It’s not even about who is or isn’t there anymore, it’s about the quality of the writing and the audience feeling like the show isn’t going anywhere.

    • I’m pretty sure it’s cancer and House has it. The show is just so boring these days (except to the hardcore fanatics who watch whatever it schills out) as shown by its ratings. Too bad it didn’t end earlier and on top.

        • awesome? if it was, then audience would be back, I even skip some eps because nothing is happening (but “dead and buried” was a good one). It’s not the same as the first seasons, the best of the show.

  • “You really get a sense of nostalgia, that this is the ‘graduating class’ that might not be together anymore. It’s really beautiful to watch our actors portray, and it’s been wonderful to write.”

    Hopefully this is focused on Meredith, Alex and Cristina, the nostalgia and all, should be on the originals who has been together since the beginning, and now they could be all going to work at different hospitals. If April & Jackson are included as much, with them it won’t make much sense since they’re not that close.

    Comment by MD – March 22, 2012 03:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’m sure that Jackson and April will also be included since they’re in the same year of their residencies as Meredith, Cristina and Alex, so it actually would make sense. It just doesn’t necessarily mean that the showrunners will choose to focus as much on those characters.

      Comment by J. – March 22, 2012 03:56 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I totally agree. For me, Nostalgia in Grey’s Anatomy is about Meredith, Cristina, Alex, Georges and Izzie. And nostalgia means the last scene of the 5 of them together, around Izzie’s bed when Cristina tells everybody Iz has cancer in season 5. I get that “Georges is dead, Izzie is gone, we are all different” like Alex said but if Jackson and April are around, I’m not sure I will feel nostalgia.

          @XtremelyPissed I’ve no idea where u heard this, but perhaps rather than be upset over things that have yet to happen, you wait to see eps?

          but corrected herself in the next tweet:

          @freyaoz Poor semantics, you’re right. Final eps have yet to air, therefore no need to get upset over widely misguided conjecture.

          I take her answers whatever the Iwaffles try to spread in the word is plain bollocks.

    Or (House vs Wilson)

  • Gotta admit:when I heard the C word-a few dirty words popped in my head. Seriously though:the House finale better be damn good ,or,the C will stand for Crap! What has to happen to Gregory House is revealed in the show’s title: House M.D.:House Must Die…

    • Cuddy was the first word that popped into mine, tbh. I was excited for a sec, till I read the rest. Cancer. House or Wilson. Not really feeling’ it.
      Thanks for all the updates, Matt. Good Wife, OUAT and Nikita especially.

  • So excited for Good Wife. It feels as though this season started slow, but the last batch of episodes have been really excited. Hopefully Matt Perry has finally found something worthy of his talent!

      • They should have named it “The L Word” and then had House dying of Lupus. Now that would be ironic.

  • LMAO at Rhimes’ “this was always the plan.” Easy out for her.It makes sense but GA hasn’t made sense for awhile. Not her fan but can’t blame her for this cluster. ABC should have signed on the originals a long time ago IMO. If she can pull off this hat trick, a decent finale, without knowing who is coming back………….I’ll tip my hand to her.

  • Seems like a lot of us, myself included, are believing the most obvious answers for “C”. In today’s society, “The C word” is not generally known for Cancer, but as a derogatory name for a female who has pissed you off. (Or think of it as the slang for a woman’s private part.)

    So let’s see how we can tie this in. I’ve called Cuddy that name quite often, usually adding the -ty at the end, but she’s a no-go, so that’s out.

    Does Dominika take House for something? Does she piss him off royally, for whatever reason? Maybe he “says” that word during the episode, (or at least the impression he has said it comes up.)

    Maybe House’s clinic hours involve one too many pap smears?

    Hmmmm first of the final four cumulative episodes. Hmmmmmm…….

  • James Morrison for Nikita president. Make it happen, CW! BILL BUCHANAN!!

  • Because when I ran Tom’s obvious love/hate thing for the chorus boy by Megan Hilty, she replied, “Oh yeah… That will get very interesting.”

    No, it won’t be interesting. I like John. He’s hot. He’s a nice guy. Tom has been an ass to John lately. Now Tom will move on to the “WOW he likes SPORTS!!???” straight “Who said I was straight?” gay guy Sam. BORING.

    • OMG Yes! They set up Tom with Dennis in one episode (That back up dancer who now only got this random shots! Shame on you, Smash! And I had high hope of Dennis!!) then he met John and I was like “Okay!” but then this new Sam is in and they’re setting them up!! C’mon, Dennis is cuter :D

  • I think Rumpel’s son will end up being 1.) Peter Pan (Rumpel does hate fairytales, maybe Tink took him away to be a kid forever),and/or 2.) August, 3.) Henry’s missing in action dad (making the charmings, the queen and Rumpel one dysfunctional family)

  • My guess is for Grey’s is whoever is coming back has already signed on the dotted line with ABC but if they leak out the information it’s more then likely going to give away a plot. eg the airport scene is cristina coming home or leaving for good?
    My faith is growing everyday that the originals will return. For example Patrick’s racing team posted a little bit about him last week – Racing is his passion, acting is how he feed’s his family.

  • The “C” word could be “CHANGE”… House always says nobody changes, but maybe they do. Change is in the air…

    Comment by Kate – March 22, 2012 07:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • At this point, “change” makes the most sense. Good thinking.

      Comment by Raspberry Topping – March 22, 2012 10:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Cancer or change. Either are boring. Cancer is obvious and if it’s change, we know the show’s unflinching motto is “no one changes”. Therefore they will toy with the idea as always but come back to this motto, like always. If there’s actual change then they make the show even worse than it is now by going back on the show’s core theme since the beginning. Since we know no one changes and House will never change and always be miserable as Shore has relentlessly pounded home the entire length of the series, there is no possibility for a happy end, or for redemption. And with Shore complaining that he resents the finale being expected to be more special than any other episode, I suppose I can assume the finale will be much like all the other episodes this season.

  • “He has to be stabbed through the heart to give away that power, so that can never really happen — but something else does,” Carlyle teases with a (non-maniacal) laugh, adding his own, “Dot, dot, dot….”

    –let me guess, he fell in love with Beauty.

    • that was later on and he started to be himself again but rejected true love. plus the dagger is still an issue he was burying it in the woods during the huntsman’s episode.

    • So you’re saying David Shore has CHARISMA, UNIQUENESS, NERVE and TALENT.

      Comment by PLEASENOCUDDY – March 23, 2012 02:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • C stand for Crazy

    House will end like St. Elsewhere

    Gregory House has always been a patient at Mayfield Psychiatric Hospital, the whole show is his day dream. The doctors and coworkers we see in Dr House’s world are either fellow inmates or his doctors at Mayfield

    Which would explain Kutner’s return for the final episode

    • This would really suck~! I can’t imagine David Shore actually giving thought to an idea that has not only been used, but would be totally disrespectful to the fans’ intelligence. We would not go for that.

      • It would be my nightmare if it’s Cuddy. Having to sit through the first part of season 7 aka the Huddy nightmare was bad enough, I don’t want Cuddy/Huddy to entirely ruin the finale. It’s hard enough to say goodbye as it is.

        • I want Cuddy’s back but I think this is the point than no matter what I want,no matter what you want,no matter what want the other fans, just matter what wants David Shore.. I think in last episode no matter him,the ratings neither …

        • I agree! And tell me, do we really want to sit there watching our fave show, and all you can see are her breasts??? Give me a break! I’m glad LE is gone, and I hope she stays gone…her and her stupid suggestions of tighter, lower cut tops!

          • you forgot to mention the close-ups of the ass and scenes of nudity, totally unneeded.
            (should have killed cuddy instead of Amber)

            @narciso

            cuddy has 4 million fans? lol
            probably will have a new show, starring by cuddy: cuddy md :p

            Comment by Kriszta – March 26, 2012 03:48 AM PDT  
  • I bet it’s Cancer.

    But I think Wilson wil be the one who has cancer and dies and then – with Cuddy also gone -House doesn’t have anyone left in his life he cares about and puts that old gun to his head ( the one from his father) with his finger on the trigger. Then the screen goes black and we are being left in the dark about his fate – a true Soprano’s finale moment.

    I would soooo hate that, but I can’t come up with something better, sorry :-(

    • lol, really? tbh the amount of random the show is throwing out these days I wouldn’t be that surprised. Hope it is cancer.I don’t wanna be a downer but I think the show needs an air of finality about it. I’m no longer a shipper of any kind (used to be a huddy) so I don’t want or expect a reunion of any form or House suddenly getting happy and running off into the sunset, with Miss X or Y, just something respectable that is good for the character as we know him. It would piss me off if the series just ended with another solved case and House and Wilson walking off to get dinner or something. That would be such an anti climax. Although I’m pretty sure David Shore doesn’t give a rat’s a** anyway

  • for the 4 fans of David Shore, sorry,of House, please stop taking it that makes them lose their sense of reality … not have reviewed other seasons numbers?
    first, must, separate the actress from the character..who was the one who wrote all about Lisa Cuddy? we know that it was Lisa E…
    but what I find amazing is that they use the name of Lisa until the last second because they know ..which is the only way to be heard..

    a good show that ended … differently
