Blind Item: Popular Drama Poised to Break Up Major Couple (and You're Not Going to Like It)

Get More: Blind Item

blinditemI hate to be the bearer of bad news just days before Christmas, but this secret has been burning a hole in my pocket for weeks and I simply must get it off my chest.

There’s increasing (read: deafening) buzz that a pivotal couple on a show with a very passionate audience may be going their separate ways by season’s end.

ASK AUSIELLO | Spoilers on HIMYM, Bones, Grey’s Anatomy, Happy Endings, Sons of Anarchy and More!

According to sources, producers of the hour-long drama in question are looking to close out the season with a bang, and they believe splitting up this beloved couple will provide just such a jolt. Additionally, the break-up (which it’s fair to say no one will see coming) would give the series a lot of creative juice as it heads into what could be its final season.

Of course, there are risks — namely, hell hath no fury like a powerful ‘shipper community scorned. And if the separation isn’t handled properly (i.e. if it’s not believable), even non-fans of the lovebirds may revolt.

So, go ahead. Call me a Grinch in the comments. I deserve it. But while you’re at it, try and guess the identity of the twosome who may be spending their last holiday season together. To help you out, I’ve narrowed down the field of possibilities from 143 to just 9 in the photo gallery below. Consider it an early Christmas present from me to you.

    • that was my first thought. sucks to think of a week without Bones … but it’s really run its course at this point …

          • I don’t think it’s them, I think it may be Caskett (My fave couple of the lot) If he’s trying to give clues to who it is not the photos more like what is written then the “hell hath no fury” and not long before this the episode Secret Santa aired.. But that’s just a theory, if we were to just pretend he was just trying to make an impact with words and go with the photos.. Then is it weird there is 2 Grey’s couples and 2 Parenthood ones? maybe that’s telling us something.

      • No. Bones is still going strong in my book and there’s plenty of things that still need to happen so I think they could at least (hopefully) go another 2 seaons or more! (:

        • I think “final season” is important here. Bones is one of Fox’s biggest shows so I can’t imagine it’s heading into a final anything. Yeah, ratings are falling and it’s getting old, but all Fox has in the hour-long department are that and Glee, and they had an awful fall, so it’s doubtful they’d be planning on a final season yet. Same goes for the ABC shows, Grey’s Anatomy and Castle. Both are getting old, but ABC had a horrendous fall also, so those are certainly not looking into having final seasons anytime soon. ABC’s Once Upon a Time is too new and buzzworthy also. CBS’s The Good Wife has also plummeted since going to Sunday, so it’s definitely a possibility, but nobody on the planet would give a damn if the not-really-together Alicia and Peter broke up their non-existent relationship. NBC’s Parenthood should be canceled on a regular basis, but its critical acclaim keeps it hanging on and rumor has it it will be back for one season, so that is a possibility. Since Nikita BARELY made it to this season, I wouldn’t think they’d be planning on another, but I think it has been doing better in the ratings. Plus, one more season means syndication. And there has never been a show in the history of television LESS likely to air a wedding, so since they won’t shut up about theirs, it seems like a breakup has been in the works since before Michael proposed. So THAT’S the one I’m going with, even though the “no one will see coming” is more like “everyone sees coming”.

          • Bones would have to renegotiate contracts again to go past nine. It’s likely not cost effective at that point, not for the ratings. If it were doing NCIS numbers sure, but that’s not the case. It’s better to put money into developing new shows than throwing money at a declining one. Look at the history of House.

          • When I read “could be last season” I immediately went to Grey’s – it’s already been said – many times – that next season could be its last. And with that, I’m voting Mer/Der

            Comment by Kristen – December 27, 2012 12:40 PM PDT  
          • My God, is there anything you don’t know? Pardon me if I don’t bow down to your infinite wisdom, but I don’t agree with some of your OPINIONS. I live on this planet and I would like to see Peter and Alicia stay together. Given that the divorce/break-up rate of TV couples is about 90%, it would be refreshing to see one relationship go through hell and survive. And as for Parenthood, I think it is a great show and I hope it isn’t canceled. I think it deals with a lot of crap that families go through openly and honestly, unlike most TV dramas which are about as realistic as reality shows.

          • I don’t see how it can be Alicia and Peter since she just agreed to renew their vows; unless something happens on their wayto (or in) Hawaii; and a tragedy, though it opens the door to a romance for Alicia with someone new (maybe Eli?) would be *very* hard on the kids, though they are almost adults; the show is best when dealing with legal issues, but if it wants to go the “soap opera direction” story lines dealing with Zach and his sister (I can’t remember her name at the moment) might appeal to a younger audience)

        • Yeh, Meredith is finally pregnent! But Grey’s anatomy is in their season 9 now, and they have been in a flight, bomb, shooting, bus, cancer, cheating, loosing baby and alot of break ups. Grey’s anatomy is my Life, I hope they don’t stop with a break up between Merder, I would die!

          • Shonda has said that Merder belong together. I don’t think she’ll break those two up again. Marital strife can also provide plenty of fodder for story, after all.

            Whatever! Shonda will break them up then kill one of them. That’s exactly what she does.

          • My first thought was Cristina and Owen but Mike said that no one would see it coming. Some people kind of see it coming.

            Even though Owen and Cristina have been having a LOT of sex lately, he spent a lot of these past couple of episodes bonding with Alana.

      • I totally disagree. I love Brennen and Bones together, but I wouldn’t mind a fight or two to spice things up. I think it is probably time for another Derek and Meridith break-up.

          • This! It’ not MerDer, They’ve had tons of break ups and disaster things happen to them in the past. Meredith is pregnant right now it’s doubtful that they’ll break up and the fact that everyone assume GA anytime there is a blind item is annoying

            Comment by TeamMerDer – December 22, 2012 09:19 AM PDT  
          • But that’s the thing. The minute Meredith said she was pregnant I thought, “Oh yeah, she’ll lose it.” I’m not saying that’s what I want, it’s just a recurring pattern with Shonda.

            Comment by Alie Hunter – December 22, 2012 10:34 AM PDT  
          • LOL exactly it’s Shonda :P We expect the worse. Plus, Meredith and Derek kinda broke-up during Zola’s adoption. Doing practically the same thing with this baby, would be repetitive and certainly not get the “creative juices” flowing.

        • I hate the troubles between Sarah and Mark, but I kind of like that, for once, it happened in a way where you can genuinely feel sorry for both the characters. Sarah didn’t *actually* cheat on Mark, but it’s so understandable that Mark doesn’t know what to think anymore.

          It’s also time for Drew, Zeek and Camille to get some fresh storylines. Those characters have felt a bit neglected this season.

          • I think it is them, and that, unfortunately would mean that Ausiello is taking a page out of Ryan Murphy’s book to call out lesbian shippers for being particularly problematic. I’d like to think better of him than that, so I hope it’s not true for that reason.

            Comment by Marnie – January 23, 2013 03:55 AM PDT  
    • It was my first thought too and after reading “heads into what could be its final season” that thought became stronger. But also that “very passionate audience” part made me think Caskett, because let’s face it, after the Glee fandom, I’ve never seen a crazier (and I say this in a good way because I’m in too) fandom than the Castle one. I hope it’s neither of them, nor Charming and Snow.

        • Have you been watching this season? Castle and Beckett are indeed officially together (but don’t tell Gates). Ausiello never said married so dating works. It’s also not likely Castle’s last season by a long shot. I’d be surprised if they stopped at season 7 unless Nathan just decides he’s done. If they keep the stories strong and character relationships growing, no reason to think he won’t stick around.

          • The “hell hath no fury” comment about the ‘shipper community has me worried… that’s the title of one of his books that a murder was based on in 1×01 – what brought Castle and Beckett together in the first place. NF did say he would rather leave the show on a high than drag it out, so season 6 could be the last. SK is a Caskett shipper, but Marlowe runs the show and it wouldn’t surprise me if he broke them up.

          • That and a recent spoiler said that Stana said about the finale that there are “mini bumps but that there is some high-stakes stuff that will bring them even closer”

            Comment by Elizabeth – March 13, 2013 07:18 AM PDT  
      • I’m changing my vote. With all the recent events that took place on Once Upon a Time, it totally is going to be Snow and Charming, unfortunately. Not that Booth & Brennan or Castle & Beckett were better options, because NO, that just can’t happen. Booth & Brennan will have the marriage talk once again before this season’s end and I hope in a more serious way that the past ones were, and Beckett is going to tell Castle that she loves him, also before this season’s end. And I don’t watch either of the other shows.

    • Nahhhh. It says the breakup would give juice to a “creative finale season” or something like that.

      Bones probably has two more seasons left, and they were apart for 6 years and did nothing creative, so why break them up now?

      Probably that Grey’s show.

      • I won’t be Bones. They’ve been renued for season 9 and will most likely go into season 10. Hart said once he gets them together e won’t break them up. PLUS they wouldn’t be able to work together anymore after that. ESPECIALLY since they have Christine. It won’t be B&B.

        Comment by Chelsea – January 13, 2013 04:18 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yeah, my first thought was Booth and Bones, which seems like a terrible idea, because Bones seems like its closest to a likely final season. OUaT is only on its 2nd and has good ratings. Grey’s may never die, Castle still has life left in it, and they’ve only been together for a year. I could be wrong, but I’m not sure Alicia and Peter are solid enough to really have a break up be that shocking. Nakita is another possibility for one more season, but if they are not guaranteed a next season, I can’t imagine breaking them up would be a smart move. And maybe Kristina and Adam, that would certainly be shocking, I just hope its not Julia and Joel, I like them, but they don’t seem pivotal anyway, so I’m not that worried.

      Comment by Drewer – December 21, 2012 05:26 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I just think that after so much, like Max, Haddie, Lunchonette, Cancer, Kristina and Adam are the only couple who would NEVER break up. So, it’s probably them, which I would HATE! But, my money’s still on bones, they have been torubles about their not married status, and the producers said that altough they will mention a marriag,e there wont be a one on this season, so… Probably they.

        Comment by Pearl – December 22, 2012 07:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I don’t think Booth and Bones because Hart had said he had plenty of stories to tell through a Season 10, and he wanted to get to 200 episodes (Season 10), and they are now officially renewed for Season 9. Other than Castle, OUaT, and now Nikita, I’m not really familiar with the others, so I hope it’s one of the ones I don’t know or care about. I abandoned Grey’s a loooong time ago, so I’d be fine with it being Grey’s.

    • It’s very clearly The Bonz Show. It’s ratings have fallen quite a bit this season, and it’s getting more expensive to produce. So I’m sure next season will be the last.

    • My very first thought was Meredith and Derek on Grey’s Anatomy. That is the show that fits the bill for a possible final season. If Shonda did that i would well and truly HATE HER! The only other show on the air that fits the bill is Bones meaning Booth and Brennan.

        • Grey’s is on the decline. The test will be how the ratings fare the rest of the season. Grey’s is on the same path as Desperate Housewives in its 9th season. If the ratings sink to 2.5, season 10 will probably be the last. It’s expensive paying the show’s stars $325,000 an episode with no return.

          • Greys is the still one of the highest rated dramas in the 18-49 demo. When you add in the DVR + 7 numbers, no other drama can beat in the demo.

            Comment by cc – December 22, 2012 03:03 PM PDT  
        • Grey’s may be going into its final season because most of the actors have pretty much expressed a desire to leave the show in the near future, It doesn’t matter the ratings if Ellen Pomeo, Patrick Dempsey, Sandrah Oh, and most of the main cast leave after this or next season.

        • Shows don’t only end because of low ratings. The longer that a show is on, the more expensive it is to produce in general, let alone pay the long term cast members. That doesn’t mean that next season will be it’s last, but does mean that your rationality holds less weight than you seem to believe.

          • Exactly! That’s what happened to The Practice – it was number 1 when they cut it because of the expensive cast. Still miss that show!!

            Comment by Kristen – December 27, 2012 12:46 PM PDT  
      • I think Grey’s was included here because there are so many couples & its been around long enough that each new season could be its last. But he chose the only two couples on the show that are actually together. That feels like a scare tactic to me.
        Derek and Meredith already did the – have a baby and break up thing – so I doubt Shonda would repeat that story line.
        And Callie and Arizona spent the first 10 episodes of the season struggling to stay together. I can’t see Shonda breaking them up after spending half of the season showing them repairing their relationship. Plus, with these two, Shonda said she wanted to show that an amputee can be flirty and loving and fun and sexy etc. I don’t think she’d break them up if that’s the message she was going for.
        My money is on the Parenthood couple. Doesn’t Monica Potter’s character have cancer? If you do a cancer break up wrong, you’re definitely going to have some negative backlash. Even from non-shippers.

    • Could be Booth and Brennan, but the hell hath no fury bit makes me think it’s caskett, and that really upsets me. They just got together, breaking them up would be a really dumb move. I don’t think castle will be in its final season next season but you never know I suppose. Ratings have dropped a little but it’s still very strong on Monday nights, always the number 1 watched scripted show. Plus all the books, games etc. I know some fans have been really annoyed that caskett has had issues ever since they got together, almost every ep has Beckett being insecure or castles very colorful past coming up. And yeah, I guess it’s frustrating to have to watch every episode with Beckett being insecure. I know a number of folks who have dropped the show because they felt it was repetitiive in terms of the episodes always making Beckett jealous. So judging by this, if it is them, they will just kill the show. 90 percent of castle fans are caskett fans, so ruin that, and the show goes. I know I will stop watching because it wouldn’t interest me to see them dance around each other again, I waited 4 years, now I want to see them grow, not take steps back.

      But having said all this, Marlowe isn’t stupid, he should know how the fans feel, and if it is really ending in season 6, then they need time to cover a lot of ground. Possible moving in together, possible false alarm pregnancy, possible engagement, and maybe end season 6 with a wedding. Breaking them up by season end would be wasting good episodes where they can make them grow instead.

      Also, does Marlowe plan the season finale so soon? It’s only aired its 9th ep, right now they are throwing ideas for the two parter, so the finale seems a bit far off for them to have their stories outlined right?

      • I agree. It wouldn’t make sense if Beckett and Castle broke up. I mean the only reason Castle has been working with Beckett is because of a possible relationship, so if they broke up there would be no reason for him to continue working with her, hence no next season. So no I don’t think it’s Caskett.

    • Bones fans aren’t nearly as passionate as Grey’s or Castle’s. But I don’t think Castle is heading into its last season. Or that it would come as such as shock. It has to be Grey’s. (The other shows don’t have such passionate fans. Maybe Nikita).

      • Seriously–Bones fans are every bit as passionate as Castle fans, if not more! I would have a total fit if they broke up, but since they are renewed for Season 9, there is NO way they would break up. B&B ARE the show.

        Comment by BonesForever – January 9, 2013 02:06 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yeah it’s probably Bones, it fits all the clues. The show is wobbling on its last legs, the writers are clearly out of ideas, just as clearly, the showrunner never wanted them as a couple anyway considering the laughable lengths he went to to keep them during the previous 50 seasons, and the minute you drag babies into a procedural cop show, it’s signals the begining of the end.

      Nikita – Only b/c I don’t watch this show, but I know it was a long shot for a renewal this season, so I’d be surprised if they got another season after next, if they even get that.
      Bones – I don’t watch this show either, but I know enough to know everyone would be REALLY upset if they split, but I don’t see the show ending soon.
      Greys – I do think they are nearing the end of this series, but Meredith and Derek won’t be split. As for Callie and Arizona, I can definitely see it happening.
      OUAT and Castle – No way it’s either of them, b/c I see them having way more than just one more season.
      Parenthood – Very possible the show is nearing their last season, but there’s no way that Adam and Kristina will be split. I’m not entirely caught up, but Julia and Joel could possibly be it. I would be VERY upset about that, b/c I’ve always felt they were in it for the long haul.
      Good Wife – No one would give a rat’s butt if Peter and Alicia split.
      My money is on either Callie/Arizona, Nikita, or Bones.

      • Im thinking Joel and Julia (parenthood)as well, they have never been broken up before and have always been the perfect and Idea couple but this season they see to be cracking under pressure . While they are a fan favourite couple though, I wouldnt say they have a rabid shipper community. So Im not quite sure its them.

        My other guess is Michael/Nikita. They seem to suit the CW rabid shipper community that wouldnt receive this news too well.

      • it wont be Callie and Arizona because Shonda loves them just as much as Mer and Der and she wants this storyline with Arizona losing her leg to be flirty and loving she wouldnt do that to the millions of Calzona fans out there. She knows if she did that we would not watchGreys and it would defo be in its last seaon which i dont think it is really

        • Do you know how many times viewers have said that? I could go to any Grey’s board in ALL the years past and count how many people claimed they “would never watch again”, that still in fact watch. Shonda might love a couple, but proof is in the pudding that that won’t stop her from breaking them up. However, it has been confirmed that Grey’s Anatomy isn’t the show for the blind item.
          Now my money is either on Parenthood or Nikita or Bones.

      • It wasn’t doubt. It was determination. She’s DETERMINED to break down the walls no other woman has.
        Like others said, there’s no show if they broke-up. Castle’s not a cop. He’s there volunteerily so if they break up they wouldn’t work together anymore.

    • my thought exactly! i think it is either them or Mikita. MerDer and Calzona are in not danger i think, MerDer has been through everything there is and are together and they already had the break-up drama one too many times and Calzona already played that card with the Africa thing. OUAT is in no danger of cancellation so not them, i don’t watch Castles or Parenthood so can’t judge. i don’t want it to be BB or Mikita but that is all i am left with to think.

      - strong fanbase (check)
      - come as a shock (check, considering they just went through with the adoption)
      - close out season with a bang (check, typical shonda finale move)
      - restart creative juices (check, also seems more likely now that Patrick Dempsey has decided to stay ie. gives him more development)

            Comment by BJohnson – December 22, 2012 12:08 AM PDT  
          • Signing for two seasons just means that they are obligated to return IF the show is renewed. It doesn’t make renewal a guarantee. In Greys case there is no reason to believe that there won’t be the next season, but there is logical reason to believe that next season may be it’s last. That doesn’t mean that it will be, but means that it is possible, if you look at things from a realistic perspective.

    Comment by Janey – December 21, 2012 01:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I wouldnt really have a opinion if it was Bones, i dont find them very believable as a couple, shes so cold and clinical that she doesnt come off to me as a very deep character. Parenthood, well i was hoping for Kristina to die, but she didnt so i doubt either will be cheating or breaking up.
      -
      I could see it being Joel and Julia, maybe even the cheating..but its all on her shoulders. Im sorry but hes the perfect husband, when anything goes wrong its because of her. So if he cheats and they divorce i find it to be unbelievable.
      -
      Lol really? Castle as a option? You specifically say “before their last season” i dont think Castle is ending on season 5 lol.
      -
      Btw this better not be so lame ass ploy. They leak and get all hyped the idea of a breakup in a finale then it happens and its :O omg then the next season rolls around and they get back together and repair their relationship.

      • Brennan, cold and clinical and who doesn’t come off as a very deep character? Obviously you don’t really watch “Bones” since Brennan is all but what you just said.
        She is the one paying for funerals for those who can’t pay (season 1), fighting for foster kids (season 1 and 2), who made herself as a possible suspect to help her father (season 3), who, when an ex boyfriend of her boss was murdered, leaving a daughter, that maybe since she had raised her while they were living together, she could take her home since her mother was already dead and she had no close family(season 4).
        She is the one who would go to funerals just so a mother would not bury her son all alone on a Christmas day (season 5), who would try everything to find the family of a teenage girl who was kidnapped when she was 3 (season 6), the one not judging someone badly because he had done some mistakes as a minor (season 7), the one fighting to get her family back after she was framed for murder (season 8).
        Tell me again that Brenan is cold and clinical!

    • The fact there is two couples from Grey’s in the list. Ups the odds it’s one of them, right? And one of them is pregnant, so a breakup would be shocking if she’s still pregnant. But would it really bring about massive change to the show for it to be Meredith and Derek. They still have Zola.

      Comment by Stacey – December 21, 2012 02:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

    • Except he said going into what might be the final season for the show the couple is on, and no way is OUAT ending next season. I don’t see Castle or The Good Wife ending anytime soon either, and I’m not sure if Nikita or Parenthood will make it to another season, although I admit to not keeping up with Parenthood ratings closely. But I do know Grey’s and Bones might be ending their runs soon, so my best guess is Bones/Booth, followed by the Grey’s couples.

      • Completly agree here!! I think the chances are stronger for the shows running 8/9 seasons than parenthood/nikita both on season 4? Or is nikita 3? OUAT will never not be renewed for at least season 4/5 with some of the best ratings across the board. I think booth and bones would b massive and would make me sad….

        Comment by Megan S – December 21, 2012 09:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I thought the same thing. All the original Grey’s cast members signing for two more seasons last spring made most people assume that it’ll be ending after next season. Bones is doing well enough to get another season, but also seems to be running out of steam. The other shows either look like they’re good for several more seasons or would be lucky to make it past this one and most of them don’t have the kind of crazy shippers that Grey’s and Bones do (moreso Grey’s than Bones).

        The only reason I’d hesitate to call it for Booth and Brennan is that they already split them up at the end of last season. Sure, it wasn’t a break-up, but it would still seem repetitive.

        And Lord help Shonda Rhimes if she breaks up either of those two couples.

    • The problem with breaking up Castle and Beckett would be that they’d lose the premise of the show. The whole point of the show is/was that Castle found Beckett interesting and alluring enough to follow around. If they broke them up, there would be no real reason for Castle to stick around the 12th and solve crimes … thus no show.

      Comment by A – December 21, 2012 03:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

      • I agree. Would totally remove the entire plot of the show. And even if the breakup was mutual and they remained friendly, Castle has always been there solely for Beckett. The reason just changed from research to like to love. And no matter how amicable your breakup was, you do not spend all day tailing your ex.
        And if this is leading to the final season, they might find out just how passionate this fandom really is. We will bring them a war…straight to their doorsteps!

        • People are already reporting that the next Nikki Heat novel is in the works so I think there’s at least a season 6 in store and it would NEVER work if they broke Caskett up. There are ways to get through troubled waters without breaking up a couple. I’ve always seen that as sloppy and cheap writing. Marlowe spend 81 episodes developing this love story. Why would he toss it in the trash so quickly?

  • I’m guessing Meredith or Derek or Callie and Arizona. The cast reupped for two more seasons, so I’m guessing that next year will be the last. Once, Bones, Castle, and The Good Wife I don’t see ending next year. Every time Ausiello interviews Hart Hanson he always talks about how he plans for Bones to continue. So, I’m sticking with Grey’s. I’m hoping it’s Callie and Arizona because I would hate to se Mer and Der call it quits, especially since she is expecting.

    • Exactly I watch all the Breakfast with Bones videos (with the showrunners) and they don’ talk about the show like its ending. It isn’t Caskett, Snow/Charming, or Micheal/Nikita. I think it will be one of the two couples from either Parenthood or Grey’s (probably Grey’s). My dark horse though is Peter and Alicia from the Good Wife.

If that hook up was cringe-worthy, what shows have you been watching so I won’t watch them. The way he threw her up against that door and then they ravaged each other was seriously HOT!

          I think it’s between Booth & Brenann and Derek & Meredith.

    • “…even non-fans of the lovebirds may revolt.”
      Is there such a thing as a Castle fan who is NOT a Caskett fan? Just wondering…Anyway, I think this is a clue that there has been controversy regarding the couple and as far as Caskett is concerned pretty much every fan wanted them together,so…

      • Agreed. But there are non Castle and Beckett fans. But would NON fans revolt if it was Castle or BONES. They might welcome it!

        • Yeah, I know there are 1 or 2 people that may be non- castle & beckett fans, but the article makes it seem like there was a significant part of the fans of the show (also in his interviews, Marlowe didn’t seem to want to break them up), but then again the ratings haven’t been stellar and maybe that’s what the “final season” comment was about. In Bones’ case, many fans didn’t like the way in which they got together and there are more non-canon fans.It’s also in its 8th season, so I dunno… I hope it’s neither of them, anyway.

          • Even if the ratings haven’t been stellar, Castle is in syndication and is making close to $2M an episode for the TNT reruns for ABC, not to mention the Nikki Heat and Derrick Storm novels. I think it has a good year or two left before it’s over. A lot of shows are down in ratings this season, so I don’t know how to judge what’s coming back or not by ratings alone.

      • I stopped watching Castle because of where their relationship went, so you can’t say everyone loves them together. Then again, I stopped watching, which would exclude from fans, theoretically.

    • That was my first guess (and my biggest concern because of REASONS) but realistically speaking, it’s pretty unlikely. Plus I don’t think Castle is heading into its final season.

      • Out of experience with blind items, I have learnt that my first guess always happens to be my biggest concern. Every time I see a blind item about something bad happening my first thought is Castle, because it’s the only show I would mind it happening to(also, when I see a good blind item, but then I have to keep the excitement low, cause I hate false hope)

        Comment by TM – December 21, 2012 02:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • “Heading into its final season” made me immediately think of either Bones or Grey’s Anatomy, so Derek/Meredith or Booth/Brennan are my guess. I don’t see Once Upon A Time or Castle on the edge of a “final season”. Nikita, while I love it, I don’t think the writers would do that to Michael/Nikita when they’re usually on the verge of cancellation as is (as is Parenthood, isn’t it?). The “non fans may revolt” line makes me think even more about Derek/Meredith.

    Comment by Ashley – December 21, 2012 01:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yeah, I tend to count out Parenthood and Nikita because they may not be going into another season at all. And Once because it definitely has more than 3 seasons in it. That leaves only 5 couples. Bones, Two Grey’s, Castle, Good Wife. Has to be one of those 5.
      -
      I don’t really think Mer/Der would give creative impetus to anything. It’s been done again and again. Also, I have trouble believing that Grey’s fans wouldn’t see anything coming… breakups are always coming on that show. Down to three.
      -
      Bones is my best guess, Castle at two.

  • I’m just gonna hope Shonda does not go there – with either couple! I could see Julia & Joel on Parenthood, though not sure if its that passionate a fan base / pivotal couple

    Comment by Jj – December 21, 2012 01:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • It’s not Bones; Hart Hanson has already said he’d never break them up. It’s definitely a couple from Grey’s.

    Comment by Lauren – December 21, 2012 01:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • LOL! Did he really? Because, Hart Hanson saying he’d never break them up is basically a guarantee that he will.

      Comment by beckstle – December 22, 2012 06:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I say it’s not Snow and Charming because their more than destined–they’re a creaking fairy tale! Mer/Der have been back and forth so many times it would just be “eh”. Bones/Booth and Castle/Beckett just for together and are just now exploring that angle of story telling so that feels too soon and forced. Sadly, I don’t see Nikita going another season to explore the storyline (love the show! But the ratings have been sad). I say it’s one if the Parenthood couples.

    • Nikita is a 3rd year show with a 4th season renewal it will go into stripped syndication numbers which will make the network and studio a lot of money in the long run do you really think they are gonna flush money down the toilet. Don’t be stupid

      • It is not Nikita as he said ‘popular ‘ show.

  • Kate and Castle :(

    Comment by Carol – December 21, 2012 01:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • My best guess would be Caskett. Especially since it’s still so early in their relationship. And if it is, Marlowe should watch his back.

    Comment by Samantha – December 21, 2012 01:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It’s not Castle. The comment about “getting the creative juices going” ruled them out as Marlowe and the cast all have said how the characters getting together has been like getting a new beginning, invigorated the story with new life and energy, given them more creative room …they aren’t concerned about getting the creative juices going. They also just don’t approach writing from such a plot-based perspective. It’s just not how the showrunners frame things when talking about the show. Bones or Grey’s – they are both very event oriented in their approach. I’d go with one of them. Timeline also makes the most sense – although Grey’s ratings are still high enough that I find it unlikely ABC is looking to end it.

  • OH god please dont let it be castle and beckett or booth and brennan please no

  • Hmmm I’m thinking either couple from Grey’s. Aren’t they close to approaching their last season?

    Comment by Jenna – December 21, 2012 01:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The only ones that would make me really angry and sad are Adam and Kristina or Joel and Julia. Please don’t let them break up.

    • I’m going to freak out if it’s either of them..

      Comment by dee – December 21, 2012 02:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • They were my first thought about “no one saw coming”, but wouldn’t they already be done with filming since it ends in February? Also, I doubt that they have really intense shippers.

      Comment by fiyero – December 21, 2012 03:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Yeah, the season end soon, but maybe that’s exactly why the blind item was posted now, I really hope I’m wrong, the Bravermans have already too much on their plate.

  • Meredith & Derek had their near-breakup when they got Zola, I doubt they’ll go that route twice, and this season has been MerDer at their strongest. I also can’t see Calzona breaking up again, especially given how theyre calling this ‘the season of romance’.

    Comment by Mike – December 21, 2012 01:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I hope it won’t be Snowing :(

    Comment by Jen – December 21, 2012 01:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Wow, the first two couples who came to mind where: Meredith and Derek, Becket and Castle. But Charming and Snow, maybe a possibility too.

    Comment by Ann – December 21, 2012 01:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think callow and Arizona or Meredith and Derek

    Comment by Persona – December 21, 2012 01:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Clearly it’s either Booth and Brennan or MerDer two shows likely only to have 1 more season that have very passionate followings.

  • I don’t see why P’hood would be entering its final season — it has its highest ratings ever right now.

    Comment by Beth – December 21, 2012 01:56 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I don’t think it will be Prince and Charming because of this: “Additionally, the break-up (which it’s fair to say no one will see coming) would give the series a lot of creative juice as it heads into what could be its final season.” OUAT will not have its final season next year.

  • My 1st thought was Grey’s Mer&Derek but I don’t care much for B&B so I wouldn’t mind too much if it were them either.

  • Since the articles says it could be the final season, my guess is for Nikita

    Comment by Travs – December 21, 2012 01:56 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Nikita is getting renewed its close to stripped syndication numbers and 1st and sophmore show on the CW is doing about the same what Nikita does on a friday.

      Comment by Michael – December 21, 2012 02:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • The article refers to a show that will be renewed and will end after that season. I could see it being Nikita – the demos aren’t that good and it will reach syndication next year.

        Comment by C – December 21, 2012 02:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • C i agree but it only need 11 ep to reach 100 ep also after season 4 that is a much better sell for warner and CW than 88-89 ep

          • You are a hardcore Nikkita fan aren’t you? You sound a little desperate …

            Comment by TBH – December 21, 2012 05:08 PM PDT  
        • A show has to be bought by another network to be put into syndication and I haven’t heard Nikita has been sold to anyone. Just because a show reaches 100 episodes doesn’t automatically make it syndicated. Grey’s is well over 100 episodes and it isn’t syndicated because it hasn’t been bought into syndication.

          Comment by Shawn – December 22, 2012 11:08 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think we can rule out Snow and Charming, because the show is heading into what might be its final season next year. Once is only in season 2, and it is a clear hit for ABC, so there’s no reason to think that season 3 will be the end. Even if, like Lost, ABC allows the writers to effectively cancel themselves, it won’t be for a while yet; Lost got six years before the end. I can’t see it being Meredith and Derek because we’ve been through all that before, so it wouldn’t really provide a new creative jolt to repeat what they did before, but Callie and Arizona are a possibility.

  • it definitely wont be castle and beckett since they only just got together. i can see mickey and nikki splitting up because they have written way too happy this season and that just screams something bad is coming but ill say its booth and brennan because they are definitely reaching final season territory

    Comment by Alan – December 21, 2012 01:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think it could be either The Good Wife, Parenthood or Nikita.

    Comment by Sid – December 21, 2012 01:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • It’s gotta be either MerDer or Calzona. None of those other shows look to be heading in to their final season, except maybe Bones.

    Comment by Brett – December 21, 2012 01:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I hope it’s “Mikita”…I’m one of the few who likes them better when they are apart. Season 1 with all that will they-wont they tension was fantastic!

    Comment by Nicole – December 21, 2012 01:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Also, do the P’hood couples actually have “shippers”? All the couples are married with kids and have been since the series began.

    Comment by Beth – December 21, 2012 01:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yeah I really don’t think it’ll be Adam and Kristina. Especially after last weeks episode. I can sort of see it being Joel and Julia but even that is a little unlikely to me.

      Comment by Sam – December 21, 2012 02:06 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • important rule about shippers: if two characters breath they are shipped by someone, somewhere; hell ive recently seen a character being shipped with himself s everything is possible in their crazy minds
