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

Get More: Spoilers

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!

  • Agent Fornell on NCIS should be under possible fatalities

    Comment by hello – May 15, 2013 01:39 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I was just coming here to post the same thing. If Bodner, a person who randomly showed up for a couple of episodes gets a spot, so should Fornell, who’s been around since the pilot.

      Comment by Candace Fox – May 15, 2013 08:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Just my opinion, but with the hesitation Gibbs had, to me he clearly was waiting for someone to emerge from the car, not looking to take out Fornell, that could be why Fornell isn’t listed as a possible fatality.

      Comment by Travis – May 15, 2013 12:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • In that case Possible Fatalities should also include Deeks and Sam because their lives are left hanging in a balance at the end of the season (whilst yes, Michelle was literally hanging in the balance). I don’t think Fornell is the possible fatality, he was clearly protecting/shadowing someone in the car, and that’s who Gibbs was really meant to take out.

      I don’t think Gibbs would kill Fornell just so everyone of them can get a clean slate. I mean, why Fornell of all the people? There’s been no lead up to that. Guess we’ll have to see what happens when the new season premieres.

      Comment by Jerri – May 15, 2013 03:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • For some reason, I do not believe Ziva’s dad is dead. I can’t think who else is out there that warrants Fornell’s protection and would have that shock value when they reveal and Gibbs shoots.

        Comment by Ang – May 16, 2013 08:08 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Will Deeks and Kensi NCIS LA count as a couple who kissed for the first time? He really “communicated” ♥

  • What about job changes on NCIS?

    Comment by Maria – May 15, 2013 06:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • “Number of vampires taking the cure for immortality”, I think this should say “mortality” considering that the vampires are already immortal?

    Comment by Rachel – May 15, 2013 07:26 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • uh yeah, they’re being cured of being immortal so that phrase is correct.

  • shouldn’t the time warp be the office in the finale

  • Does Fornell not count as a possible fatality on NCIS?

    Comment by mkayvee – May 15, 2013 08:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • How does Cece and Shivrang not count as a broken engagement?

    Comment by Ben – May 15, 2013 09:42 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • was wondering the same thing

      Comment by whyohwhy – May 17, 2013 04:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • When you see those many [SPOILER] signs at the “possible fatalities” part, you know that the Shondaland finales haven’t aired yet….

    Comment by Lily – May 15, 2013 10:23 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Callie and Arizona will break up.. Why, Shonda,why! :0(

    Comment by rmr – May 15, 2013 12:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

    Thommy from arrow died on the season finale (May 15) episode.

    Comment by Arrow Fan – May 15, 2013 08:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I hope they keep Michelle on NCIS: LA. I think she accents the show and is a great compliment to Todd’s character. I also hope they do not mirror regular NCIS killing yet another spouse sending the husband on a vendetta.

    Comment by Ang – May 16, 2013 08:05 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • So, I am thinking we need major updates from last night’s season finales: 2 deaths from Arrow (Malcolm and Tommy Merlyn — if Yao Fei can make the list, both of them need to make it), Major job changes: Cas from Supernatural (if he lost his grace, then he is no longer an angel, correct? That is a PRETTY MAJOR job change). An argument can also be made for Crowley having a job change. Sam may not have “cured” him but he was discussing looking for atonement for his transgressions and that could be interpreted as meaning his job as the King of Hell is no longer applicable… Also, I am thinking Moira Queen (Arrow) will no longer be the CEO of Queen Enterprises now that she has been arrested for conspiracy, murder, and assorted other crimes tied to the Undertaking…just saying!

    Comment by Lady K – May 16, 2013 08:31 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • You should also count Agent Tobias Fornell from NCIS as a “possible fatality.” SPOILER: We heard a gunshot, but we don’t know if he was indeed shot or not. And maybe you should also count Shivrang and Taylor Swift’s “Elaine” from NEW GIRL as an “engagement” because he was at least a recurring character. I see you’ve counted his “break-up” with Cece already.

    Comment by Jeremy M. Boegel – May 16, 2013 12:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Malcom (Arrow) is neither in the fatalities or possible fatalities?

    Comment by Joel – May 16, 2013 12:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Jolene from Nashville died last night. Shouldn’t that be under deaths? Hoping the last spot is for Jo and Alex under the I love you/kissing/sex category.

    Comment by Jacqi – May 16, 2013 01:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • There was an “I Love You” from Penny to Leonard on BBT

    Comment by Katie – May 16, 2013 06:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yes, but it wasn’t the first time.

  • The Office has to count as a time jump!

    Comment by Jackie H – May 16, 2013 09:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Jo and Alex kissed and Alex said ILY :)

    Comment by Laura – May 17, 2013 04:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Raj and Lucy broke up on TBBT and Leonard got a new job.

    Comment by Natalie – May 17, 2013 04:39 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • We already know there’s a fatality in Grimm — both Bree Turner and Claire Coffee have said so — though they may be coming back. Possible fatality?

  • What about Matt-Rebekah kiss on TVD?

    Comment by Eden – May 17, 2013 06:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • yeah you’re right they are missing

      Comment by Laura – May 17, 2013 06:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I am so glad Richard on Grey’s Anatomy is only under possible fatalities, that means there is chance that Baily finds him and saves him next year!

    Comment by Azerty – May 17, 2013 08:24 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Shouldn’t Matt and Rebekah be on the “couples having sex, kissing or saying “I Love You” for the first time” list since they kissed in the finale?

    Comment by Mia – May 17, 2013 09:05 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I bet the last slots of deaths, possible deaths and breakup/divorces will come from Hawaii 5-0.

    Comment by lll – May 17, 2013 09:37 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Obviously he doesn’t like Rules of Engagement cause Adam and Jen get married, Brenda gives birth to Audrey and Jeff’s baby and Timmy quit working for Russell. Three things not on the list.

    Comment by A.B. – May 17, 2013 09:37 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Not on the list because the episode hasn’t aired yet.

      Comment by Nicotine – May 20, 2013 04:50 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I stand corrected.

      Comment by A.B. – May 21, 2013 06:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Disagree with Joe from The Following being a fatality. Stick him under potential/possible fatalities. He was too awesome a psychopath to kill after 1 season, can totally see him doing a dental number on the guy in the lighthouse pre-fire and/or planting DNA evidence to fake his own death. It’s also wishful thinking because James Purefoy so nailed that role.

    Comment by ember69 – May 17, 2013 11:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I totally believe Joe is not dead, he can’t be, who is gonna be the big villain then? emma?, don’t think so

      Comment by maria – May 17, 2013 11:23 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Um, Bonnie graduated on TVD. She was dead, but she still walked. :P

  • so… why was robin and barney on the gets married list?

    Comment by kay – May 17, 2013 04:03 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Because everyone thought they were getting married.

      Comment by Travis – May 17, 2013 04:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • So the only thing from Nikita that fits is Nikita and Michael breaking up and maybe change of job for Alex since she will start working for the UN

    Comment by hello – May 18, 2013 03:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • What about Stefan?!!!!!!!! he’s a possible fatality!!!!!

    Comment by Lucia – May 18, 2013 09:28 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • He’s not a possible fatality, he’s just locked up under the lake. That won’t kill him, just make him incredibly weak. He’ll return at some point next season, I’m guessing.

      Comment by jedispyder – May 18, 2013 10:25 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I doesn’t count that Robin said I love you to Barney Scherbatsky! I was the first time she said it on screen :’)

    Comment by Lucia – May 18, 2013 09:34 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Broken engagements should also include Nikita and Michael since she did give him the ring back.

    Comment by Helvetica – May 18, 2013 11:03 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Sadly, you need to add Nikita/Michael under the broken engagement category.

    Comment by Kim – May 19, 2013 11:40 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Stefan and Seth Meyers under the weddings Category

    Comment by Joel – May 20, 2013 07:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • What about Kono leaving with her boyfriend to Shanghai on H50? Does that count as a firing/major job change?

    Comment by lll – May 21, 2013 09:20 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Steve didn’t fire Kono nor did she quit.

      Comment by pilo – May 21, 2013 09:43 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • But she’s obviously leaving the country, hence not working for H50. I think it should count as a major job change.

        Comment by Helvetica – May 21, 2013 01:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • the category is “Number of onscreen firings/resignations/major job changes” Kono quite her job at least for now so that would go under resignations.

        Comment by JAS – May 22, 2013 12:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Why the heck is there a wedding for Timmy and Russell?

    Comment by Jack – May 21, 2013 11:00 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Russell ignored immigration and Timmy was going to be deported. To make it up to Timmy, Russell decided to marry Timmy.

  • Aren’t the fates of Rachel Matheson and Bass Monroe in Revolution up for question?

    Comment by becca – May 22, 2013 10:32 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • They haven’t finished the season yet. Possible fatalities only applies to the state of a character in the last episode of the season if that episode airs during sweeps.

    (sorry about my bad english, it’s not my first language)

    • I obviously meant breakup/divorce (typo)

      Comment by Samantha J – May 23, 2013 08:30 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Mike and Molly was postponed due to the tornado in Oklahoma – I am wondering if, perhaps, the breakup/divorce happened in that show, and it was just removed since we are unsure when the finale will air. I hope that isn’t the case, but it is the only possible reason I can imagine.

    Also, like Nick in Grimm and Olivia in SVU are gonna die for real…

    Can I just say I'm so happy Renée is pregnant in Chicago Fire?

  • You missed fatality – Chief Webber (Grey’s)

    Comment by Allison – May 23, 2013 09:25 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • He’s under possible fatality.

      Comment by Steven – May 23, 2013 09:54 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think Joe on The Following should be in the Presumed Death category. His body wasn’t recovered and he’s been smarter than everyone from the get go.

    Comment by Jen – May 23, 2013 09:26 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I wouldn’t have the Replicator under possible fatality. He was locked in a room that exploded. I’d say he’s dead.
