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. Nazgul says:

    oh dear god y are there 2 spots left in the break up category noww..:( really really really so badly hoping it aint caskett.!

  2. Katie says:

    Score 1 Wedding for Wemma (Will and Emma) of Glee!

  3. aadil says:

    Engagement, Matthew and April – Greys Anatomy
    Sex/Kiss first time, Lauren & Arizona – Greys Anatomy
    Giving Birth, Meredith (next week) – Greys Anatomy
    Death, Bonnie – The Vampire Diaries

  4. David says:

    so put Glee in the break up cateogary and also maybe add in Calzonia as from greysas welll cause last night the look likely could be wrong

  5. Tine says:

    Um, shouldn’t Oliver/Laurel be in the reuniting category? I know we haven’t seen it, but tecnically they’re reuniting.

  6. Rebecca says:

    I’m starting to think that there’s so much focus on Caskett breaking up that it can’t be one of the breakups. It’s not much of a spoiler if everyone is talking about it including Marlowe. I suppose it could still happen, and I’ll be disappointed if it does, but with this much attention to it I wonder if they’re really going to go that route at all. It’s almost overdone.

  7. Katie says:

    I know not many people watch The Middle, but Axl and Cassidy broke up on Wednesday!

  8. shay says:

    I love you thing I think it’s for Alex & Jo on Grey’s Anatomy even if I don’t ship them

  9. Gerald says:

    It might be hard for Bonnie to be one of the 9 that Graduate.
    Unless there is something else we don’t know.

  10. Tanya says:

    castle and beckett are definitely going either to break-up, either to get engaged. and honestly i have no idea what would make me happy, because s5 was rather boring and the development of their relationship disappointed me a bit. so, in my opinion, it needs to be shaken up. but being a huge caskett shipper.. i know that i will be heartbroken if they actually break up. so i don’t know what is better, but i’m sure one of this events would happen

    • shane says:

      says you ( i dont mean to be rude my applogies if i was ) here is why i dont see a castle break up what good would it do the whole idea is castle following beckett at the 12th take away that what have u got nothing it would be diffucut and akward to continie to work with an ex also it if goes aginst spoilers from stana and seamus have said in previous weeks now do i see a break up no do i see an enagament maybe but what i see as advancement of their realtionship and about the whole season 5 look at the viewwers ship and ratingsi t has pulled its number 1 for abc

      • Tanya says:

        yes, i agree with you. i mean.. it’s marlowe we are talking about. he will be able to come up with the 3rd solution i don’t see. and i agree that if they break, shadowing kate won’t be an option for castle any longer, so the show may lose something. but it has already lost something with caskett being together, imo, the relationship could have been developed much more better. and also also said in her twitter that the finale will be a tearjerker, so.. the break up is really likely to happen

        • Karen says:

          yes I know stana said it would tearjerker i know but the problem i have is spoilers can be tricky things look what happened earlier in the season Ep 2 and 5 for example just becareful appearences can be very despective but i do understand here you coming fom i respect you POV but a brek up would set thinfs back and not forwards in twerms of stoytelling

          • Tanya says:

            well, i don’t watch any promos neither sneak peaks neither read any spoilers. i do, however, follow this article and all my thoughts are based on what i have seen and what i’ve read from actors in twitter. and i absolutely agree with you: their break-up will cause a lot of troubles to the show itself, because ‘shadowing kate’ won’t be an option anymore. but still, i really hope writers will come up with something to make me ship caskett as passionate as i used to.

  11. Jackie H says:

    Oh god… How I met your mother is doing a time jump….It came to me a moment ago and now the feeling won’t leave…

  12. Kirty says:

    NBC spoiled the time warp one in the ad for next week’s The Office. 6 month gap

  13. Tom Charles says:

    Need to add Axl and Cassidy from the Middle to the breakups, sadly

  14. alexjones says:

    the nick and chloe kissing spoiler for grimm was just stupid, it was a single episode plot and not a real relationship, nick was just under her influence.

  15. tessa says:

    saw some other comments, but since there have been updates since- why don’t Rayna and Deacon on Nashville and Fitz and Liv on Scandal count as couples reuniting? Pretty sure both happened inside sweeps…

  16. Matthew says:

    Is Dwight and Angela the spoiler wedding?

  17. gatorgal says:

    How about Sean and Juliet from “Pysche” breaking up? Also, since Britany on “Glee” has unbelievably been accepted at MIT, I would assume that she graduated from McKinley High.

    • shane says:

      so sean and julliet broke up and if thats the case one more spot to bef illed which i think maybe reserved for a greys couple let see

  18. What about Axl & Cassidy from The Middle in the break ups column?

  19. Travis says:

    How does Ilan Bodnar on NCIS and Hallie on Chicago Fire get listings under fatalities and Jamie Reagan’s partner Vinny Cruz doesn’t? Vinny was probably on screen more than either of the other two were.

  20. Wouldn’t you count Vinnie (Jamie’s partner) on BLUE BLOODS as a fatality? That happened the week before the finale on May 3. I know it’s not an extremely popular show, but it is a death of a regular/recurring character.

    • Travis says:

      I would like to argue your statement “I know it’s not an extremely popular show…” Blue Bloods the week of May 7 was the 7th most watched scripted show on tv and the 13th most watched overall. Don’t let those sponsor driven 18-49 demo numbers fool you. Blue Bloods is an extremely popular show.

  21. Mary says:

    I don´t know if Castle and Beckett will break up, but she won´t be pregnant…that category is already filled:)

  22. Matt says:

    Daryll quit on the office.

  23. Oliver says:

    graduating scoreboard says bonnie is graduating. but considering what happened to her, I would say she didn’t…

  24. so says:

    Hahahahahaaha!! If anyone can find the scorecard of last year and look at some of the things and you can see how much things have changed in one year! lol! crazy!!

  25. kristina says:

    I heard a Rumor that Karen-Jimmy will be engaged in the smash series finale, it could happen

  26. ad says:

    Couples Reuniting – Belle & Rumplestiltskin, Once Upon a Time
    Resurrection/Big Returns – Mulan, Prince Philip, Aurora, Once Upon a Time

    • Alice says:

      I’m not sure if Belle and Rumpelstiltskin will count since he and “Lacey” were still together the whole time.

  27. Cyn Cromarty says:

    Confused…it says that Aiden from Revenge was a possible fatality, but he was copletely fine, it was daniel that was bleeding at the end and left you wondering how he was ding, wasn’t it?

  28. Cyn Cromarty says:

    completely^…doing^….(maybe I should proof read what I write)

  29. CJS says:

    Regarding HIMYM:
    1. Barney & Robin DIDN’T get married. What the hell’s up with that? (rhetorical question)
    2. Does the reveal of the mother count for anything? It really should.

  30. iman says:

    I think the time warp might be 90210…

  31. justanotherfan says:

    They keep adding to the engaged//proposal section. Lets hope Castle and Beckett with be one of them. Maybe Leonard and Penny.

  32. Yeah, no wedding for Barney & Robin on HIMYM…

  33. Em J says:

    Sooooooooo UPDATES Marriage proposules: CASKETT OH MY GOSH YES!!!!!!!!!! (RICK AND KATE CASTLE) BIG REVELS: THE BLOODY MOTHER IN HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (SHE LOOKS AND SOUNDS AND WOW SHE IS SOOOOO TEDS WIFE! She even sort of looks like the daughter!) I hope one does not mind the spelling mistakes but I am fangirling here!!!!!!!

  34. RyG says:

    Once Upon a Time: big returns Philip, Aurora, Mulan
    possible fatalities: Neal

    and what about a section on people getting arrested?
    or possibly leaving town, kill someone, etc

    • RyG says:

      big reveals, such as the Mother [HIMYM], or Red John narrowed down [Mentalist]
      people getting arrested: Nolan [Revenge]

    • nealcj says:

      Neal isn’t a possible fatality, he was shown landing in Neverland in the last scenes of the finale.

  35. ad says:

    what about return of Auroa, Mulan and Philip. Why is not that listed, if not Aurora and Mulan but PHiliph should get listed vs Patrick on Revenge. This Scorecard get so BS with some categories. Like Mathew & April Reuniting during Sweeps or We still haven’t got conformation if Neal is Alive he could be dead.

  36. Ashton says:

    Wasn’t Barney and Robin supposed to get married????

  37. Peng9803 says:

    Annie and Liam got engaged. But I thought someone was going to die on 90210.

  38. alexjones says:

    I think that last remaining fatality is from Nikita, I heard there was a death coming up in the finale.

  39. cathy says:

    Interesting that after I commented about them incorrectly listing Molly as pregnant, they removed it from the list AND deleted my comment as well.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Sorry, there had been a miscommuncation. The typo has been fixed. Thank you for the tip — with raindrops we can fill buckets!

      • Krithika says:

        Matt the same thing happened to my post as well. I pointed out that you had mis-linked the Kate tells Rick ILY article and you DELETED my comment after making the change. What gives?

        • Christine says:

          Same thing happened with mine. It’s probably because once they fix it our comments make us look stupid and we’d get a bunch of people telling us how what we’re commenting on isn’t there. This just keeps the comments section from getting cluttered.

  40. Lauren says:

    Castle finale aired on May 13, not May 12. Also, was Castle the blind item couple? They seem to fit, but there’s no indication as to whether that’s the case.

    • CD says:

      No Castle was not the blind item couple, which was a couple that would break up in the finale and Castle pretty much went the opposite way with the proposal..

      • CD says:

        Never mind I take that back I just now saw Ausiello’s post about “separation” changing to a different 10 letter word, which I’m guessing is “engagement” So I don’t know if they are the blind item couple or not….

      • scooby says:

        Plus it’s clearly not Castle’s possibly final season. It’s an older show nearing the end. Not that Bones couldn’t be re-upped again, but it wouldn’t be a stunner if they ended it either given the length of the run. I don’t get how this is not Bones. If it was somehow Castle, the blind item clues were misleading. Just doesn’t make sense.

  41. Val says:

    When will we know who was the blind item?!

    • CD says:

      We should know by the end of the week. As far as I know it hasn’t been any of the couples on the list whose season finales have already aired and the only couples left from the list are Arizona/Callie or Meredith/Derek from Grey’s Anatomy and Michael/Nikita from Nikita and their finales air on Thursday and Friday.

      • Val says:

        But the ones left on the list are already married or engaged. The blind item changed and it was the opposite of a break up and 10 letters which everything things is engagement. Which wouldn’t make sense

        • Val is right. Ausiello said that it has changed from break-up to a different 10 letter word. Which many people have guessed is engagement. I guess this could of been relating towards Castle since the finale seemed to be heading towards a break-up then at the last 2 minutes, changed to a proposal.

          • CD says:

            Yeah sorry about that, I found that update from Ausiello after I commented… guess I learned that lesson. And you’re right it could very well be Castle that he as referencing.since it looked like a break up then turned into an engagement.

        • CD says:

          Sorry I hadn’t realized it was changed. And that is a good point that the others are already married or engaged, so if its “engagement” like everyone thinks then it could only really be Castle. Though I guess there is a very small change it was Booth and Bones because they were engaged for all of 10 minutes in the finale. Though its a small chance because I kind of doubt there was ever the possibility of them breaking up.
          Regardless we should still know by the end of this week or by next week. I looked at last years scorecard and he has it marked who the blind item couple was so I assume after the card is filled out he’ll mark it.

          • Val says:

            It’s fine. Thinking about it if the blind item did change and it was engagement then mostly everyone was out. What if it isn’t engagement and is something else?!

  42. The air date for Castle proposing is May 13 not 12. Small typo there. Was not expecting that cliffhanger. Many people probably felt Beckett was preparing to take the job over Castle. Just have to wait 4 months until the Season 6 Premiere to see what happens

  43. Breck says:

    Is it me, or have there been far fewer fatalities this year than in the last couple of years?

    • Travis says:

      No aliens (V) or Dinosaurs (Terra Nova) or Lunatic Government Agents (Jack Bauer) running around this year… But never fear, Jack Bauer is coming back next year with cases of body bags to fill.

  44. Sabrina says:

    Maybe nick and jess says i Love you to each other???? I Hope so!!!!

  45. Anna says:

    Maybe add Kensi/Deeks to first kiss. Beautiful moment in the finale.

  46. Gregg says:

    Why isn’t Castle listed under pregnancies?

  47. Courtney E says:

    I may or may not have cried during the NCIS:LA finale. So bittersweet..

  48. Alicia L. says:

    It really is the first kiss because the last one was completely undercover!

  49. Miranda says:

    Did they first visit Neverland in the penultimate episode of Once?

  50. Jerri says:

    Number of onscreen firings/resignations/major job changes: should be At least 15 with the trio from NCIS resigning. But at least NCIS LAs Hetty stayed put this season.
