May Sweeps Scorecard 2013: Deaths, Weddings, Births, Sex, Resurrections, Firings and More!

May Sweeps Scorecard 2013If May Sweeps is just around the corner — and the calendar says it is — that means two things, one even better than the other: 1) TV is about to get good! And 2) it’s time for TVLine’s May Sweeps Scorecard!

Like always, the Scorecard is brimming not only with Sweeps spoilers but also with season finale spoilers! And, same as last year, many of the teasers are hidden beneath a [SPOILER] tag — in other words, you’re gonna have to put on your guessing caps to figure out who’ll be doing what to (and/or with) whom.

RELATED | 2013 Renewal Scorecard: What’s Getting Cancelled? What’s Coming Back? What’s on the Bubble?

A few things to remember before you scroll down and read on:

• Firstly, the bulk of the entries below pertain to series regulars or recurring characters from shows that air on a broadcast network (i.e. ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, The CW).

• Secondly, as the twists begin to leak, the Scorecard will be updated (and re-updated… ) until, finally, all the blanks are filled in and/or replaced by even more items! (Mind you, so as not to give away any classified intel, the blanks will often remain blank until after the plots to which they refer untwist on screen.) Regardless, so we strongly suggest you bookmark this puppy and check back for updates.

• Lastly, if it’s on the Scorecard, it happens during May Sweeps, which this year begins April 25 and ends May 22.

OK, now you can go ahead and start reading The Third Annual TVLine May Sweeps Scorecard! Hey, did you already start? Bastards, the lot of you!

  1. Couples kissing, having sex, or saying i love you for the first time… *prays for Lucrezia and Ceserae* xx

  2. Huskygrl says:

    Are you looking for the name – Robert Wagner? As in the guy who has been playing Tony’s dad for the last several years?? And the show you’re referring to was Hart to Hart.

  3. Connor says:

    Number of resurrections and/or big returns:
    Prince Philip
    Number of couples reuniting:
    Philip and Aurora

    • Tricia says:

      Returns maybe. But I don’t think there’s going to be enough time in the finale to reunite Philip and Aurora. I’m pretty sure that will carry over into season 3. I think Rumplestiltskin and Belle will be on the list for reuniting couples two years running, if getting her memory back counts.

  4. MARY K. PEARL says:


  5. Moonshine says:

    Can u please give us some scoop for the break up blind item?..first off is it even true :P??

    • maria says:

      yes, it is true, the breaking up couple are castle and beckett, she gets a new love interest in tomorrow’s episode

      • Fran says:

        No, none of that has ever been said about Castle and Beckett. She doesn’t get a new love interest, she has a guy that is interested in her.

  6. Alex says:

    Is the death on nikita not one of the fatalities? Or has it just not being updated yet? By this I mean Sean

    • alexjones says:

      that death wasn’t during may sweeps so it doesn’t count, that said I heard there’s an even bigger death happening in the finale so they might want to add that.

  7. Alicia L. says:

    They can add Rigsby and Van Pelt getting back together on the mentalist.

    • Emily Hansen says:

      Yes, that totally makes since to me that they would get back together although I haven’t kept up on the show much since they stopped being together

  8. Kate says:

    After everything that looks likely to occur next week in The Good Wife finale…

    Saying “I Love You” for the first time AND/OR Couples reuniting:

  9. madbengalsfan85 says:

    Based on the promo for next week…Booth is going to be a possible fatality, Brennan pops the question

  10. Courtney E says:

    Please oh please let there be some Kensi/Deeks or Tomy/Ziva action. They can say I love you, kiss, have sex I really don’t care! I just want something to happen already!

  11. Vivi says:

    After yesterdays Castle ep. I’m pretty sure, that Castle will propose to Beckett in the Season finale.

    • MJO says:

      I hope you’re right!

      • Emily Hansen says:

        When Martha says to Castle that Beckett isn’t really committed because there is no ring on her finger I think that was hinting at a proposal in the finale or at least I hope so and supposedly Beckett drops a bombshell which according to spoilers is probably about her job.

  12. Andrea says:

    So isn’t GLEE season finale ending at regionals? If so then wouldn’t that make your list of potential MH graduates null and void since they would be carrying the rest of their senior year into next season? I’m just saying its bugging me that they’re on the list and seems a bit sloppy folks.

    • JP says:

      Agreed. Plus the already spoiled Blaine and Kurt proposal STILL isn’t on this even though its already confirmed and has been in the promos.

  13. Anne says:

    Couple reuniting just has to be Stelena, enough with the crappy Delena storyline of this season. The dance at prom showed why and how they will be endgame: you can see the emotion creeping through Elena’s eyes. She mentioned to Rebekah how she ruined her relationship with Stefan, and she couldn’t stand to be with Damon at any point during the episode yet she stayed dancing with Stefan. You can’t build a relationship as profound and deep as theirs only to flip it over because they feel like it. Plus, if the show kills off Damon/Stefan, the writers and producers are completely out of their mind. They will lose at least half the viewers, esp Defan fans. Damon and Stefan are part of the main trio. We all know that somebody important is going to die in the season finale, but if it is one of the trio then the writers have gone insane: people will stop watching.
    We know that ghosts are coming back so I don’t think that opens the possibility for a real ressurection for Jeremy/Alaric/Jenna, even though I would die to get Jer back.
    Stelena! Stelena! And hey Julie Plec: DON’T YOU DARE KILL STEFAN OR DAMON OFF! The show will never be the same without them.

  14. Anne says:

    We know that Blaine is proposing to Kurt, no ?

  15. Anne says:

    First kiss let’s go for Klaroline/Mabekah on TVD?

  16. I’m predicting in the pregnant department:

    1) Parks and Rec – April (Not Ann or Leslie) OR (and it counts as 2 then) Ann and Leslie.
    2) Castle – Beckett (which would be awesome if the writers did it justice in the next season)
    3) Alicia on The Good Wife

    I’m predicting in the weddings:

    2) Booth and Brennan
    3) Andy and Erin

    Number of couples reuniting: At least 7
    1. Ann and Chris on P/C
    2. Claire and Ryan on The Following
    3. Not a clue.
    4. Not a clue.
    5. Not a clue.
    6. Not a clue.
    7. Not a clue.
    Number of breakups/divorces: At least 6
    1. Derek and Meredith
    2. Snow/Charming
    3. I have no idea
    4. No Idea
    5. Nada
    6. Nada
    Number of fatalities: At least 8

    2. Someone on Revolution
    3. Someone on Bones
    4. Someone on Bones
    5. Someone on Greys Anatomy
    6. Someone on Scandal
    7. Someone on Chicago Fire
    8. Someone on Grimm

  17. alexjones says:

    Laurel and Tommy just broke up on arrow so that can be added to the list.

  18. alexjones says:

    also i’m predicting that the broken engagement will be nikita/michael from nikita and it’s going to be broken in a very permanent way.

  19. Matthew says:

    Should we add momentous kisses in the scorecard(I think it was in there with Jack/Kate Finale kiss on Lost in 2010)? Jim and Pam(the office) had one and said I love you, but both were not split/in love, but dealing with problems.
    The office so far…
    Splits: Senator Lipton and Angela,(confirmed in 4/25 episode)
    Possible Split: Oscar and Lipton(there may of been a imply that Oscar was not with the senator in the episode).

  20. aadil says:

    Pregnant- Haley, The Vampiree Diaries
    Couple Reuniting- April & Matthew

  21. Mel says:

    No one from Glee is graduating by the end of the season. The finale is the regionals episode. Darren Criss said on twitter last night that Blaine is not graduating on the finale and that’s what he’s referring to.

  22. Nabil says:

    Why isn’t Mellie leaving Fitz on Scandal last night under the Breakup section of the Scorecard? and why isn’t Fitz and Olivia’s (BRIEF) romantic reunion on there?

  23. A says:

    Don’t Troy and Britta count as one of the breakups last night? That truly felt like one, even if it was somehow inevitable.

  24. LMJ says:

    First ” I love you” – Steve to Catherine (H50). He’s done everything BUT say those words to her! On the other hand, half the fandom would voluntarily die and go to heaven if Steve said those words to Danny while batting his lovely eye lashes!

    A death? Doris McGarrett…PLEASE!

  25. aadil says:

    What about Matthew and April reunion on Greys Anatomy

  26. becca says:

    Number of couples reuniting: wouldnt this include jim and pam from the office?

  27. Aly says:

    Does April and Matthew’s reunion count?

    On GA, I’m thinking that Mer will be the one giving birth.
    Possible reunion of April and Jackson (depending on how fast that goes in the next few episodes) as well as Alex and Jo having their first kiss/I love you. (Pleaseeeeee?)

    • A.B. says:

      Well they are either missing a birth or they are not counting Rules of Engagment but Brenda, who is the surrogate of Jeff and Audrys baby will be giving birth at the end of the series and as I’ve heard the show is shooting the finale as the series finale. So what that means to Meredith’s baby on G.A. who knows but one of them is giving birth. Or possibly we don’t see one of the births and that’s why only one counts, grasping for straws I know.

  28. JP says:

    I just have this feeling that the cure is going to either Silas, Elena, or Stefan. I just have this really weird feeling that Stefan is going to take the cure based on the fact that Julie Plec said they changed their minds halfway through the season as to who is taking the cure. It would actually make sense.

    Also, one of the fatalities might be Owen on Greys. Something big happens to whoever delivers Merediths baby in the finale (as per the recent spoiler) and I am guessing that either Owen, Alex, or Jo’s boyfriend is delivering her baby and who ever does so will die by the end of the episode. I would hope they wouldn’t kill Alex off because he is one of the three remaining original interns and he has been getting much closer with Christina this season which is good. I could totally see them killing Jo’s boyfriend (idk his name) because he is on The Originals which just got picked up today. It would make sense especially since he delivers babies.

  29. JP says:

    I also have a really bad feeling that Jam is one of the breakups/divorces. That would explain why their reunion hasn’t been added yet. If the writers break them up, it will NOT be a pretty site. Jame is the core of The Office (minus Michael Scott of course). With that being said, one of the big returns better be Steve Carrell!! The Office would be nothing without him!

  30. Daisy says:

    Pretty sure TGW will fill several shots after Sunday’s finale and I predict the dead list will feature some names after the The Following finale on Monday.

  31. Delta D. says:

    Do the characters of Community qualify as graduating?

  32. cuk.e13 says:

    didn’t see the pregnancy coming. First time the show has caught me completely off guard in a while

  33. Wayne13 says:

    Zach did not graduate this season “The Good Wife” this season.

  34. steve says:

    No Maelficient from Once under returns?

  35. Karen says:

    Shoulda Cary also be on the list with Alicia, since he has essentially left Lockhart/Gardner as well?

  36. Mandy says:

    Didn’t Tessa and Ryan have sex for the first time in the season finale of Suburgatory. Also, George and Dallas broke up.

  37. Oliver says:

    Followup? New things has happened…
    Beckett told Castle she loved her.

  38. Daisy says:

    I’m curious were TVLine will list Joe Carroll’s ‘death’. Because I’m convinced he’s not. They would be crazy to only use James Purefoy for 1 season.

    • Chuckles says:

      I’m so glad someone agrees. His death just felt way to anti-climatic, and how convenient there happened to be gasoline where he ran to.

      • Daisy says:

        Exactly. Since on The Following anything seems to be possible, I’m pretty sure some followers can fake DNA results. And Joe seemed pretty interested in Ryan’s phrase ‘You can’t kill me because I’m already dead’, that proves for me faked his dead.

  39. Steve says:

    What time do you update? I’m surprised nothing from Monday is up yet!

  40. Luke says:

    I don’t think Joe Carroll is dead. He should be put under possible fatalities. Some other stuff is missing.

    • Luke says:

      Aw, shoot. I hit post comment before I was done. The other stuff that is missing – Rigsby and Van Pelt reunion on The Mentalist. Tessa and Ryan had sex for the first time on Suburgatory.

  41. M. says:

    Seeing that Castle’s “Still” aired out of order & would originally have aired outside the sweeps I wonder if the “ILY” was originally listed here or added as an extra number.

  42. Jayde says:

    Pretty sure “Bonnie” from the Vampire Diaries graduated last year? Wasn’t she in college this year?

  43. K says:

    It’s kind of ridiculous that Booth & Brennan are considered one of the engagements. It lasted literally 10 minutes and they weren’t engaged anymore by the end of the episode

    • Huskygrl says:

      Retread the category, it says engagements/PROPOSALS- the little backslash means either/or, and there definately WAS a proposal. Also the next numbered item is Booth & Bones in the broken engagements category.

  44. Delta D. says:

    We can add now Jess and Nick on the sex for the first time category

  45. Em J says:

    Number of couples having sex, kissing or saying “I Love You” for the first time: At least 9

  46. kristina says:

    Couple kissing for first time: Derek and Karen Smash
    Couple Reuniting: Karen/Jimmy Smash, Derek/Ivy Smash
    Pregnancy:Karen or Ivy Smash
    Fatality:Kyle Smash

  47. Kristen says:

    Couples kissing or having sex for the first time:
    Nick and Jess, New Girl

  48. Joel says:

    Danny’s eyes said I love you to Morgan on Mindy Project. *Semi sarcastic post*

  49. Rob says:

    Wouldn’t Zoe and Wade be added to couples reuniting? I guess we don’t know for sure what they do and how long it’ll be for but it still is a reunion of sorts?

    • Alice says:

      I’m pretty sure they just hooked up. I don’t think that counts.

      • aadil says:

        I am pretty sure in one the season finale of Gossip Girl Blair and Chuck hooked up and he still listed them under reunion be also wrote temporary. So why not this? then

  50. Chuckles says:

    Claire actually quit shortly after getting hired. So I’m not sure how that’d work out on the list.
