New Spoiler Alert!: Silencing Smash’s Ellis, Casting Kalinda’s Wife Hubby and Blind Intel!

Get More: Spoilers, Video

Go ahead and turn off your smoke alarms now, because this week’s Spoiler Alert! goes right for the burning questions! Along with Matt Mitovich and Parks and Recreation’s Retta, I tackle such hot topics as:

* When is Smash going to kill off Ellis?

* Who’s going to play Kalinda’s scary-ass husband on The Good Wife? (Paging Jeffrey Dean Morgan… )

* Is P&R’s Leslie going to win the election? And if she doeswin, would that be the “good thing” that Retta says happens in the finale, or the “bad thing”?

* And, perhaps most spoilerifically, when are Castle and Beckett going to hook up, thereby revealing themselves as the couple in that blind item everybody’s talking about? Or is the couple not them?

  • That was lame – after making us wait all this time to hear whether Castle is the subject of his blind item, Ausiello refuses to confirm or deny it – boooo!

    • Seriously! that was definitely not an answer! come on, Ausiello!

    • SERIOUSLY! I’m all, WTF, dude? Really? That’s just …. dude, that’s like “EW” territory. (Sorry. Had to be said. Er, typed. Whatevs.)

      • OH OH OH! And ANOTHER thing … was there not a blurb on this very site just a few days ago that it *WOULD* be revealed in this SA? I mean – not this cutesy hemming and hawing wink-wink-nod-nod crap Ausiello is, admittedly, very good at, but an actual affirmative statement?

    • Oh please did you see the promos it has to be them and if he spoiled it before it aired he could get into some trouble cause it obviously a huge moment for the show.

  • Thanks for absolutely no new information about the Blind Item.

    • In all seriousness, I am glad. Wouldn’t you rather be surprised than just waiting for it?

      Comment by Kayley – May 3, 2012 01:08 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • If I wanted to be surprised i wouldn’t have watched the video, knowing it contains spoilers.He could’ve just said from the beginning that we won’t find out until it happens, rather than contribute to our impatience by telling us he will reveal it today.

        Comment by TM – May 3, 2012 01:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I get that coming here assumes that you want to hear spoilers, and that’s fine. (While I don’t want to know the blind item in advance, I’m not normally spoiler adverse, hence why I clicked here.) The problem is spoilers, especially big spoilers like that, are like cigarette smoke. They’re not going to stay in one area. I can try to avoid them, short of closing out all social media and hiding under a rock for a week, I’ve really got no options and there’s a good chance I’m going to run across something accidentally. I’m not against you choosing to spoil your viewing experience, I have a problem when what you choose to do adversely effects mine. So I actually thank Ausiello for not spilling the big beans, even though I know he got a ton of people up in arms.

          Comment by Kayley – May 3, 2012 01:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • I just meant that he shouldn’t have mislead us into believing that he was going to reveal the blind item, if he wasn’t going to. Most of the castle fandom who watched the video did so in order to find out about it, and I am probably not the only one who feels cheated by the fact that we were not given what we had been promised.

            Comment by TM – May 3, 2012 01:28 PM PDT  
          • I get being upset and feeling cheated at being mislead. That’s totally understandable. But as a part of the Castle fandom, I know a lot of people are going spoilerfree, especially in regards to if Castle/Beckett is the blind item. Those are two different issues. I’m just saying that Ausiello was right (I think) not to spoil that. The lying about going to spill the beans wasn’t the right choice, though.

            Comment by Kayley – May 3, 2012 01:58 PM PDT  
          • Honestly, if you’re trying to stay spoiler-free you shouldn’t be on twitter – especially during the finales! Twitter is the fast lane on the superhighway of the internet. It was made for people to give out instant information and be ahead of the game, not hold stuff back. And coming to a spoiler site…not so helpful either.

            As for all the tease…that’s business as usual for the blind items on this site. Besides, at this point it’s pretty obvious that it’s Castle. :D

            Comment by Beckstle – May 4, 2012 04:14 PM PDT  
      • Well, considering mr Ausiello NEVER reveals blind items, until after they happen, and not even gives clues that let us at least narrow the possibilities to 2-3 (we’re always left considering a crapload of shows)… I think we’re all just starting to develop some kind of blind-item-immunity of sorts. Him posting what he does, and posting nothing, is almost the same – besides the brain crunching, of course.

        Comment by Delirious – May 3, 2012 02:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Wow, thanks for riling the entire Castle fanbase up for no reason. That was absolute BS.

  • So that’s a yes! Caskett 4eva!

    Comment by Emily Landeen – May 3, 2012 12:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Looking at promos (for the blind item):

    -We have Caskett making out
    - Kensi/Deeks getting some kisses during their undercover mission.

    I will be pretty shocked if it isn’t Castle/beckett.

    Comment by Kristen – May 3, 2012 12:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’d rather have Castle/Beckett than Kensi/Deeks.

      Comment by smidnite – May 3, 2012 02:05 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The blind item refers only to an ABC or CW show.

      Comment by valezza – May 3, 2012 02:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’m actually thinking its Elena and Damon on Vampire Diaries, since it says, “Most” of their boosters will be pleased. So, i think we’re being faked out to think it’s Castle and Beckett. Although i would like Kensie/Deeks.

      Comment by Emily – May 3, 2012 03:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • He said that the two people in question were both human at one point when he answered a bunch of questions on twitter so it can’t be Elena and Damon.

        Comment by WolfTVAddict (@WolfTvAddict) – May 3, 2012 06:11 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Damon was human at one point.

          Comment by Emily – May 3, 2012 07:06 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Actually his answer wasn’t “they were both human at some point”.It went like this:
            Q:Are they both human?
            A:Yes.
            So it probably isn’t Damon and Elena.

  • 2 weeks! ? Then is not Castle and Beckett, :( Mike you are a tease! but the Canadian promo shows more than you can afford here.. :)

    Comment by nitemar – May 3, 2012 12:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • He said within the next 2 weeks. So Castle is still in the running for the blind item.

      Comment by N. – May 3, 2012 01:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yeah, Casket is still in the running. You can also include:

      - Kensi/Deeks
      - Maybe Nick/Jess

      Can’t think of any other couple within the next 2 weeks that fit the blind item.

      Comment by Anna – May 3, 2012 01:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Ausiello said the show was either on ABC or on CW. So it is not Kensi/Deeks or Nick/Jess.

        Comment by TM – May 3, 2012 01:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Nick/Jess doesn’t fit because Ausiello previously said it wasn’t a freshman show.

  • While I’m not sure whether – after that VERY revealing promo – it really matters if Beckett and Castle are the blind item, I have to agree with all of the above: this is absolutely no way to treat the fandom!

  • Whoever Kalinda’s scary-ass husband is, he better be FINE AS HELL. If he and Kalinda are gonna be getting into some BDSM the actor needs to be seXXXy.

    • lmao

      Comment by Caitlin – May 3, 2012 01:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Ha, I’m completely serious though. From a post-finale interview with the Kings…
        EW: And from what you said earlier, I take it we’ll see some heat in Kalinda’s relationship with her husband, but at the same time, they may very well want to kill each other.
        Robert: [Laughs] That’s a very good way of putting it. Yes. It’s not exactly Fifty Shades of Grey, but the spirit of sexual dominance mixed with who’s dominating who. It just sounds like a fascinating way to see Kalinda.
        -
        And for those paying attention to Kalinda’s behavior–the way she and Blake stripped down/she beat him with a bat, then how she told Dana she could (and let her) slap her–Kalinda obviously has some interesting sexual kinks. If it’s going to play out onscreen the guy (her husband) better be good-looking.

  • So I’m in the minority, I’m sure, but I’m actually glad there’s no confirmation either way on the blind item. I checked this article cautiously (because while I don’t want the blind item spoiled and I’d prefer to wait on that, I’m still a sucker for spoilers and even still, didn’t watch the video), and I know if Ausiello spoils that nothing short of turning off all social media and locking myself in a room will keep me from finding out by accident somehow. Let’s be honest, we’re all 99.99% sure it’s Castle/Beckett, but it’s still nice to not have confirmation. Let it be (sort of) a surprise.

  • Lame, Mr. Ausiello – that was just plain wrong. As for Kalinda’s hubby – Idris Elba.

  • You said the question would be ANSWERED in this video. Clearly it wasn’t. What a pointless way to get all the Castle fans excited and watch your video… only to realise there’s no new information at all.

    Comment by Rosie – May 3, 2012 01:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I don’t know what the exact working of the promise was, but do you blame him at all for such a marketing tactic? I don’t. And actually, I’m glad. As much as I would love if it was Castle/Beckett (and yeah, there’s a pretty good chance it is), I don’t want to know beforehand. What fun is that?

      Comment by Kayley – May 3, 2012 01:11 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Well clearly we *do* wanna know, otherwise we wouldn’t be here. I don’t like to be told that I get new information only to learn that there’s no new information.

      • I kinda do feel it was kinda shady (though still love you Aussy!) He DID say he was going to reveal… although maybe he was gonna get in trouble w/ the network or something or break a breach of info or something?

  • Everything stops during Tech week. I don’t even know my own name when I’m in tech. So yes, tech is important and it’s impossible to think about anything else other than the show you’re working on. I completely buy Karen’s “I’m in tech” response to Dev’s marriage propose.

  • Can’t watch the video for some reason. What’s the deal with Ellis on Smash? Is he gone? Because he truly sucks and I’m several weeks behind on watching so it’s likely he sucks even more than I think he does.

    Comment by Jules – May 3, 2012 01:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • absolutely nothing, they just talked about if he SHOULD be killed with the new showrunner next year and apparently think he’s a character you “love to hate”….instead of just hate. I feel like watching this was a waste of time….there was no updates, nothing of substance here

  • Dude! I would say boy I’ma slap you but as I do not know where you live and I probably could not afford to go there so all I am saying is not cool bro! You can just guess which fandom I am in the same that have commented above me! xD

  • If you say you are going to reveal it, then actually do it. You lose credibility that way. If you have no intention of revealing it, then keep throwing our the teasers instead. Jeez, marketing 101, Ausiello.

  • This was my first time watching Spoiler Alert – never again after this trick to get me to watch!

    Question: Based on the Castle season finale promo, it’s looking more and more likely that Castle and Beckett are the couple at the center of your blind item. Are they?! —Cheryl
    Ausiello: Your question will be read aloud (by a special celebrity guest) and answered (by yours truly) in this week’s episode of Spoiler Alert! Look for that on Thursday morning and not a moment sooner

    ‘I will not confirm or deny’ is NOT an answer! Boooooooooo

  • Well, just realized that in the article it makes reference to 3 things……TGW, Smash and the Blind Item….if u look at the pic, TGW, Smash and Castle….so that may mean Blind item = Castle. :)

    Comment by Sam – May 3, 2012 01:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The question asked in the video was “Is the blind item about Castle?” not “What show is the blind item about?”. So since they mentioned the shows name in the video, regardless of whether the blind item is or isn’t about castle and beckett, Castle can still be tagged in the article, and the fact that they used the picture doesn’t really mean anything. Sorry to burst your bubble,trust me, I am just as hopeful as you are.

    Comment by Becca – May 3, 2012 01:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Retta was totes fun in this edition of SA! You should bring her back again. Liked the point Matt made about “Smash” and how they need to get you to care about the characters and then start rounding them out. Whether or not it’s “Castle” in your BI, I know they will seal the deal. I’m pretty sure the CTV promo showed us where it was heading. And if it was just a kiss, they wouldn’t have an ‘S’ warning. ;)
    For Kalinda’s scary husband, I wish it could be Liam Neeson, as Retta suggested (as a throwaway). He could do a good scary.

    Comment by Natalie – May 3, 2012 01:41 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Forget the blind item! It doesn’t compare to Retta, the Good Wife, or Parks and Rec! All you have to do is watch the promos to know that the blind item is Castle. Duh.

  • So is Castle the new Bones or something? Because with all this detective and writer working on cases and dealing with sexual chemistry, it sounds alot like it. In that case, give me the originals, Booth and Bones, over the copycats.

    Comment by Cody – May 3, 2012 02:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Originals? Bones and Booth weren’t the first couple solving cases and having romantic tension between them on a tv show, lol.

      Comment by valezza – May 3, 2012 02:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Really? Are you going to judge the show before seeing it? Cause just because the premise is similar it doesn’t mean these shows are the same. The styles, the characters etc. are, at least in my opinion, nothing alike.There are certain similarities but most of them are just superficial ones. And the fact that Bones and Castle both have a male and a female lead who are attracted to each other doesn’t make them one and the same more than being a procedural does (I don’t even know if Castle is a procedural,considering the fact that solving the crimes on the show has little to do with forensics and more to do with intuition etc.) Anyway, I am a fan of both shows, and I can tell you that as far as I am concerned I can hardly find a situation where C/B would act the same as B/B.I couldn’t imagine either of the couples in the other’s shoes.

      Comment by TM – May 3, 2012 02:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • they are quite different shows, please at least watch episodes of both shows back to back before automatically assuming things.

      And really Ausiello, shame on you for leading ppl on lol. Oh well it’s only till monday before ppl will find out if it’s Castle or not, if not, then let the second-guessing begin.

      Comment by Symce – May 3, 2012 02:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • As a fan of both shows, I’ll admit that they’re similar, but they’re also similar to many other shows that came before them. I’ll also tell you that Castle is much better. Andrew Marlowe actually knows what to do with his characters, and comes up with narratives that flow smoothly and make sense. I can’t possibly say the same thing for Hart Hanson.
