Matt's Inside Line: Scoop on Bones, Horror Story, Smash, Grey's, NCIS, Once, Five-0 and More!

InsideLine_0124_DWWho’s returning to Bones? Was the latest Horror Story all a hoax? What’s the bullet on Grey’s Anatomy‘s new whip-cracker? Who’s the new gal in charge on Smash? And what “big” surprise is coming to Once Upon a Time‘s diner? Read on for answers to those questions plus teases from other shows.

RELATED | American Horror Story: Asylum Finale Recap: Going Out With a (Bloody) Bang

American Horror Story: Asylum | Some seem a bit confused about what the season finale’s callback to the premiere’s Jude/Lana scene meant – namely, there is speculation that perhaps Lana fabricated her asylum stay in the name of selling a book. What show boss Ryan Murphy shared after a press screening of the finale, though, puts that to rest. “Our jumping-off point for the whole season [was to have Lana] go in there, become a prisoner, do her shock-corridor tenure and then go back to tear the joint down,” he said. “That was the ending we had from the very beginning [and] I thought it was a very heroic ending for her.” Murphy also revealed that “for a split second” they considered having Bloody Face Jr. turn out to be Season 1′s Ben Harmon, “But I really like that the seasons have their own story.” Looking ahead to Season 3, Murphy teased that the story will be “more historical in nature,” include a “star-crossed-lovers-from-different-tracks thing” and perhaps not be quite as deviant as Asylum’s antics. “As a person right now,” he explained, “I do feel lighter and wanting to embrace something a little bit more fun.”

Grey’s Anatomy | Seattle Grace won’t know what hit it when Constance Zimmer (Entourage) kicks off her recurring run tonight at 9/8c, playing physicians’ adviser Dr. Alana Cahill. With the hospital needing belt-tightening in the wake of the lawsuit whallop, Alana is “your total f–king nightmare,” Jessica Capshaw told me, “because she’s the person that comes in and delivers the bottom line, talking about how unnecessary people are, essentially. She talks about how everyone can function more efficiently, and that means people lose jobs. She’s the bad news bear, man!” Then speaking out of character, Capshaw declares herself “a big fan” of the new Grey’s addition, raving, “Constance is fantastic.”Montego_Glover

Smash | With the NBC series introducing at least one other show-within-the-show, titled Hit List, during Season 2, we’re going to need a second Linda. To that end, TVLine has learned that Tony-nominated actress Montego Glover (Memphis, right) has landed the recurring role of Marissa, a stage manager who is described as “compassionate and authoritative.” Smash launches its sophomore run on Tuesday, Feb. 5.

And now, a smattering of questions from the reader mailbag…..

The Bones episode that you and Michael were talking about on Spoiler Alert!, the one dealing with Sweets’ childhood, does it have a title yet? Also related to Sweets: Is Danielle Panabaker returning anytime soon? –Ed
I’ve got a two-for-one special for you, Ed: The aforementioned semi-Sweets episode, “The Fact in the Fiction,” is tentatively scheduled to air Feb. 25. But you’ll want to also tune in Feb. 11, when Panabaker reprises her role as FBI Special Agent Olivia Sparling. (That episode, “The Shot in the Dark,” is the one in which a gunned-down Brennan “reunites” with her mother.)

Can you please give us some Once Upon A Time scoop, especially about Emma and Neal? –Shelly
I can only advise you to keep an eye out for the next episode of TVLine’s Spoiler Alert! But as a make-good, I offer an exclusive photo of the Giant sipping mead (or beer) at Granny’s in the Feb. 10 episode:

This is not really a scoop request (or maybe it is), but the press release for the NCIS episode “Canary” (Episode 10×14) seems to be lacking guest cast. –Daniel
You seem crafty, Daniel, so maybe you already dug this up. But if not, that guest cast includes Chuck alum/imminent Bones guest star Vik Sahay (playinga  computer hacker), Ethan Rains (General Hospital: Night Shift) and Geoffrey Wade (aka Don’s Mad Men dentist). Did I mention Vik Sahay?

When is Jamie Lee Curtis making her re-appearance as NCIS‘ Dr. Ryan? I thought she was perfect with Mark Harmon. –Nancy
“I actually speak to her all the time,” NCIS boss Gary Glasberg said when I ran your Q by him. “She is a huge fan of this show and of Mark Harmon, and she would love to come back. But right now, there’s just a lot of talking. Nothing to report at the moment.”

Is it too soon to ask about Awkward? – Jayna
Actually, no – because the show has just put out a Season 3 casting call for the role of Collin, a surprisingly charming classmate who will distract Jenna some, even to the point that she ignores Matty’s calls. Then again, Jenna as a whole is not quite herself when the MTV series returns. Something about not getting much sleep at home….

Do you have any scoop on Hawaii Five-0? –Dave
The scoop is that, suddenly yet surely, roller-skating is en vogue again! Because just as Bones‘ Angela is going undercover on a roller derby team in an upcoming episode, so is Five-0‘s Catherine, when one of the sport’s top draws turns up dead.

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

    • Just spin off Sweets so I can get back to actually enjoying watching Bones again. I detest this character. He is the worst. The worst.

      Comment by Matty – January 24, 2013 02:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The show may be called Bones, but in my opinion, Bones is the most annoying character. Season after season she just regresses to a bigger and bigger child to the point where I don’t see how any of her colleagues put up with her, regardless of her brilliance in her field. This character flaw is not helped by the actress’ voice. I find the other characters so much more compelling and funny. So I’m all for whole episodes devoted to supporting characters.

      Comment by veronica – January 24, 2013 03:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I have to disagree. Brennan has grown as a person since the pilot. And what’s wrong with her voice? I think Emily is a brilliant underrated actress and that only should matter, not her voice. But hey, I respect your opinion. Just saying :-)

        Comment by Carmen – January 24, 2013 04:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I agree – Emily is an incredible actress to be able to portray someone like Bones without cracking up all the time. She’s awesome.

          Comment by Diane – January 25, 2013 10:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I have to agree with Veronica. I feel like she’s become too childish to be believable or enjoyable. I actually stopped watching the show for that reason, and I used to be a huge fan. I think she should be less blatantly stupid-clueless. She wasn’t like that when the series began. They’ve written her to be progressively dumber and dumber.
          Unfortunately the last episode of NCIS (which I’m an even bigger fan of) had me feeling the same way about Abby. I love Abby’s character but her huge mental breakdown over a teddybear was a little extreme, to say the least, and very childish and out of character. I love her sweet silliness, but for goodness sakes I wish the writers would have her acting her own age and not like she was in this last episode. They portrayed her self now as so weak and emotional that over something minor from childhood she runs away from work and walks around moping holding part of an old stuffed animal and crying about her life. Seriously? These women in the shows have been shot at, kidnapped, and lost people they loved and they showed tremendous strength and tenacity throughout. The writers are turning them into whimpering children, and it’s annoying as hell. I think the writers of both shows need to do some female (forensics chick) character reassessing.

          • Which speaks to Hook’s lack of character. How could any decent person love a woman who abandons her child to chase a pirate. I would understand him using her and losing her, but how could he love someone he can’t respect?

    • Best. Idea. He can go live with Angela and Hodgins. They lost their money and the rent money would come in handy. He has lived with Booth and Brennan since Nov, that is long enough, in a kids room no less, what a creeper. Plus I want to see Parker back bonding with *his* family. Parker > Sweets.

      Comment by Ginny – January 24, 2013 03:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Good point, where is Parker? He should be at least visiting the MH, a phone call would be nice, anything. Booth would never choose one child over the other or, at least, I hope he wouldn’t.

    • I agree. I like Jamie Lee Curtis, but hate her character on the show. Major game player, even when it wasn’t necessary. Just not a good fit with Gibbs. I’d rather see Colonel Mann back, even though she’s been out of the picture for several years now.

      Comment by Bella – January 24, 2013 02:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I’d like her to come back if only to have Sean astin and Gibbs team up to hunt down her ex husband or to try and find the killer and have everyone think its Sean astin only to have him take the fall for her and end Gibbs liking her for good. She plays a much better bad guy than good.

She ruined Jillian Anderson & David Duchovney on X/Files, they were a great couple on a personal basis, but then “she” guest starred on an episode & her sex-starved self broke that relationship up! Now they are divorsed & Jill & David are just fine again!

    • I’m in agreement. I did not think JLC had chemistry with MH though it could have been the character and the way she was written. I certainly think JLC is a terrific actress but still didn’t see chemistry with MH. And JLGibss deserves chemistry with a woman–at least at the very end of the series.

    • Is Glasberg serious? He must not read the same blogs and comments that I do and I read as many as I can find. Her character was a complete disaster. I know she is a personal friend of Harmon’s and they probably thought it would be fun to work together but she was just awful. Does anyone believe Gibbs would get involved with a woman he couldn’t trust? My husband (and I am sure he isn’t the only one) would actually refuse to watch any episodes and reruns she was in. If, for some reason, Glasberg feels the need to wrap up the story arc let’s pray it is one episode and they send Ryan on her way.

  • Looking forward to Neal returning. Emma needs closure from that relationship in order to move on and from some writers interviews, seems they have no interest in making Neal a regular so he is most likely back for an arc than will either day or leave Storybrooke again.

      Comment by luli – January 24, 2013 05:23 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • She actually IS a regular on the show, Michelle Borth, I mean. She just isn’t on the Five-0 task force. Technically, her job is much more “important” to the government than theirs! ;) BUT, yes, like you, I just keep expecting something to go wrong with it that she’ll quit/leave and joins the task. She’s amazing and I’d like to see her in every single episode. In fact, I keep asking Ausiello this question almost weekly, but never get answered.

        Maybe the problem is that her character wasn’t in the original series, and they think it’s too much of a stretch to just throw her in on the task force? Every other woman they tried (Larisa Oleynik – who was initially supposed to stay — and Lauren German) were rejected by the public. I heard they were smoothly brining Michelle Borth into the show. With Kono, the character did exist in the original show, except it was a man.

        Yes, I’m obsessed. And, nope, I’ve never seen the original :)

Its okay that he has attacked Belle Repatledy cause hes hot right? BARF Hook is a Villian and has no business being with Emma when she has a Child to think about and Hook is no role model

  • Aw, man, I liked OUAT (and TVD, and House, and SPN, and a dozen other shows) way better before the shipper wars started. Nothing ruins a comments section faster than people sniping at each other and trying to tell the writers how to do their jobs. (That goes for the rabid anti-Sweets faction of the Bones fandom, too. I’m tempted to quote Bambi: “Thumper, what did your father tell you?”)

  • Disgusted by the H50 news, but called it as soon as I saw the roller derby spoiler. Yeah, this is one to skip. Once again Mary Sue Cath excelling at and knowing all. Kono is the cop and should be going undercover. No point to Cath’s character, sex, favors and whatever Lenkov wants her to be super at. I can’t stomach the character anymore, plus no chemistry or screen presence with Steve. Boring and bland.

  • When is Catherine joining five 0, cause her only purpose in the show is to do favors for Mcgarrett…

  • I love H5O just the way it is. Here a Cath and there a Cath fine, but please remove her from permanent. She has no purpose to her character. The core of the show is four people, that is STEVE, DANNY, CHIN, and Kono. Please, Please leave it that way. As a girlgriend fine, not one of the 5-O members.

  • I really enjoy the Neal Cassidy character and like him with Emma. I’m looking forward to that on Once and on Sweets’ episode of bones.

  • i stopped watching Bones at the first sign that HH was turning Bones into the Sweets show. Ridiculous, with the amount of damage he did to them in the first few seasons. No FBI shrink goes into the field with the field agent either, or conducts the interrogations, ad naseum. The actor is obviously HH’s new golden boy, fairhaired child, see the cross overs with his other failed show, and more story line then a secondary character deserves or warrants.

    The contrived ‘here, sleep in our extra bedroom’ bull for more screen time. Just give him a spin off already HH, and be done with it. I watched this show for Booth and Bones and then the secondary cast around them. Not the Booth, Sweets and Bones show.

  • Surely you meant KONO and not CATHERINE in the Hawaii Five-0 scoop…

    • It would be dangerous for Kono to go undercover though, considering the entire island knows she works at Five-0…

      • It hasn’t stopped them so far and probably won’t in the future. This storyline is just Lenkov trying to show off his golden girl Catherine. Urgh. And to think, I use to love her and was excited when they announced her regular status. She can’t leave fast enough now. I miss the main characters and the ohana feel of season 1.

  • ZERO chemistry between Jamie Lee Curtis and Mark Harmon. They may be friends in real life, but they have NO screen chemistry, not for romance. NO. Almost as bad, are Tony and Ziva’s chemistry, friends – yes, romance – zero chemistry. At least you can tell they are friends on screen and not just acting. Please leave romance out of the bullpen and stick to the stories/friendships/team, more like real life.

  • Ew no. PLEASE do not bring Jamie Lee Curtis back to NCIS. She is a great actress, but not in a dramatic role – at least, not for that character! HATED “Samantha Ryan” and her relationship with Gibbs, which is funny considering that I loved Curtis and Harmon as a married couple on Freaky Friday,
    SO excited for the Brennan gets shot episode on Bones!

  • Any Castle scoops?

  • Thank you for the H50 spoiler, I am now super excited for that episode. Catherine is one of my favorite characters!

  • This is not the first time that TVLine, chooses a question about Neal and Emma, and then responds on another character.

    Begins to be ironic … I feel frustrated :(

    But thanks for the scoop

  • Ugh, 5-0, what are you doing? Catherine is supposed to be in the Navy but so far we have seen her do everything BUT be in the Navy. It is wearing thin and I lost any interest I had in her character about 5 episodes ago. Kono is a team member, a cop and seriously underused. If she can’t go UC, then don’t do an UC storyline. No hate, but I will also be skipping this one.

    • Totally agree. Of course, it could be worse – they could have Cath undercover as a champion surfer. It’s only a matter of time….

  • I love Sweets! I don’t understand why so many find him unappealing. I’m also super excited about the Shot in the Dark episode!.

    Comment by Casey – January 29, 2013 09:30 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Since there is a huge storyline for Brennan and Booth in Shot In the Dark, then I can understand why they are doing a secondary storyline afterwards. They keep writing Sweets into the plot so much because David needs someone from the FBI to balance out all of the squints from Brennan’s group. They have also said that DB and JFD have very good screen chemistry and they like to work together. He also fills in a void because they can’t incorporate Parker into the show. If you compare Bones to say Castle the difference is that the lab plays a very large role in each episode while in Castle the squad room and Castle’s apartment are equally used in each episode. Castle’s teenage daughter and his mother can be regular characters because so many scenes are filmed in this location. On the other hand Parker would not fit in the lab or the FBI bullpen. Parker is living with his mother in England where she now works. He can only come for visits. Christine is still a baby, not too many plots can involve her without much of the audience tuning out of the show. JFD is a very talented actor and budding screenwriter so yes he is a viable option. Finally, Bones is a show known for the depth of character development, which includes their secondary characters like: Cam, Angela, Hodgins, Sweets, and their revolving interns.
