Glee Castle Arrow Spoilers Ask AusielloGot a scoop request? An anonymous tip you’re dying to share? Send any/all of the above to

Question: Is Puck ever going to get a real storyline again on Glee? It feels almost like he’s been completely written off the show and he’s my favorite. —Sarah
Ausiello: Funny you should ask. Word on the street is he plays a significant part in the episode that is currently shooting. (Hint: We’ll get answers to the questions, “Where is he living?” and “What’s the deal with him and Kitty?”)

Question: Any interesting Glee news you can share with us? —Sebastian
Ausiello: Does the prospect of Coach Roz wresting control of the Cheerios from Sue sound interesting?

Question: Do you have any scoop on Castle‘s 100th episode? —Kathrin
Ausiello: It airs Monday and “there’s a lot of Castle/Beckett fun,” previews series creator Andrew Marlowe. “It does focus on aspects of their relationship, but what we wanted to deliver is something that was classic Castle and Beckett. Something that felt like it could have played in [the] first season, or now. We were looking for something that was really quintessential, and we were really excited to have found it.” And perhaps on a related note — or quite possibly not! — Jon Huertas teases, “There’s some lingerie” featured in the milestone outing. “It’s not on Esposito this time, but there’s some sexy attire. And there might even be a celebration.”

Question: Aus, come on. It’s the final season and you’re showing no love to Spartacus! —Naazneen
Ausiello: Jupiter frak me, you’re right. Apologies. Hopefully this will make up for lost time: In next Friday’s penultimate episode (this Friday is a recap special, FYI) Spartacus (the character and the show) pays glorious tribute to Crixus and, at the same time, introduces a much-despised character to the mystical power known known as Karma.

Question: I’m crushed about 90210 being cancelled, and the only thing that would mend my broken heart is a Silver and Dixon reunion. Will my heart be forever broken, or is it a possibility that these two find their way back in the end? —Natalie
Ausiello: All I’ll say is that at least two of the show’s star-crossed duos will reunite in the May 13 series finale — with one of those couples getting full-on engaged. Also, rumor has it much of the swan song revolves around the aftermath of an explosion.

Question: Is Jenna back for good on Pretty Little Liars? An what about Shana — is she around for a bit? —Lori
Ausiello: According to exec producer Oliver Goldstick, “You’ll see both around,” adding, “We saw [in last week’s finale] that they’re a weird trio, like Macbeth’s witches, with Melissa and Jenna and Shana plotting. So the four girls start Season 4 questioning what the alliance is between those three. Is one of them actually giving orders to the others? What bonds them besides their antipathy toward Alison and the Liars?”

Question: Is Colton Haynes really gone from Teen Wolf? If so, are they going to recast the part? –Kriselda
Ausiello: Now that Haynes has been upped to a series regular for Arrow Season 2, his days as Jackson are definitley over. And while there was talk that his character would be killed off for the Season 3 premiere (airing June 3), Haynes himself has heard nothing to that effect. “I don’t know, actually,” he tells us. “I’m still really good friends with everybody, and I’m sure that [showrunner] Jeff [Davis] and all the writers, whichever way they go [with Jackson], it will be epic and true to the show. I think that Jackson will always be alive, somehow. Whether they kill him or not, Jeff will find a way where everybody is happy.”

Question: Veep‘s second season is right around the corner — got any new intel? —Beth
Ausiello: Anna Chlumsky’s chief of staff is getting a new love interest and he’s going to look a lot like onetime Office worker Zach Woods (Gabe).

Question: Any scoop on the New Girl finale? —Amber
Ausiello: I have three little nuggets of info for you: The episode is cheekily titled “Downton Abbey Christmas Special” (a nod to the fact that Fox tacked on an extra “bonus” ep to its Season 2 order), it takes place on Cece’s wedding day, and it features a guest appearance by a living, breathing, out-of-control badger. I kid you not.

Question: Scandal scoop? Please? I’m obsessed! —Jeff
Ausiello: The Grim Reaper will be putting in another appearance soon. No recurring character is safe!

Question: How long before Neal figures out Tamara’s real deal on Once Upon a Time? —Kelly
Ausiello: Not any time soon, so everyone there in Storybrooke — both magical and “Muggle” — had better watch their backs. Because make no mistake, Tamara isn’t pulling off her dirty work using any ol’ $99 stun gun. “We did not just kill a magical creature with an off-the-shelf Taser,” series cocreator Adam Horowitz affirms. “The Taser isn’t what it seems at first, and we get into that soon.”

Question: I’m ashamed to admit I watch (and enjoy) Anger Management. Go ahead and judge me, but do it after you give me some scoop. —Jenna
Ausiello: FX’s Charlie Sheen comedy is currently shooting an episode titled “Charlie Gets Lindsay Lohan In Trouble,” which tells us two things: Lilo will be playing herself (which we knew). And the show is going to have some fun lampooning that pesky image problem of hers (which was inevitable). I also hear Lohan will find herself shooting a commercial for a Japanese gum for alcoholics called Number One Happy Whiskey Chew (which I’m pretty sure we didn’t know). And with that, the judging of Jenna begins!

Question: First off, I absolutely love TVLine and tell everyone about it. All we have at our small office is a bunch of Justified lovers. I do research on Justified for everyone in the office. They are constantly asking for more news, more news. Please give me something to hold off the horde? —Karen
Ausiello: You call your co-workers whores? Where exactly do you work? Nevermind. Trying to be less judgmental (at least until after I answer Qs). Don’t have any gossip on the finale, but I can tell you that Boyd and Ava’s pursuit of Ellen May reaches a violent climax in tonight’s penultimate episode. In possibly related news, the crackling hour also features a pivotal-ish death. Quick, go tell the whores!

Question: I have not heard anything about Bones‘ penultimate episode this season. Do you know anything about it that you can tease? I know Chad Lowe is directing and that, apparently, they’re shooting something big on Tuesday. —Amelia
Ausiello: Today’s Ask Ausiello is (apparently) brought to you by the word penultimate! Regarding your query, I defer to exec producer Stephen Nathan: “The penultimate episode involves shutting down the lab because of an unknown and highly contagious disease which has killed a blogger. One of our own is also afflicted. The only way to save this member of ‘our family,’ who I will not divulge, is to catch the murderer. It’s a pretty intense and emotional Bones.” Which member of the team do you think gets cooties? Jump to the comments with your most educated guesses! (Then jump back and read the rest of AA, please. There’s some good stuff below.)

Question: Any shot at all for Smash? Any discussion out there from DirecTV, Bravo, etc. about co-producing or picking it up entirely? I enjoyed Season 1, but I’m really loving Season 2 and really disappointed to hear that it’s pretty much already been canceled. —Nick
Ausiello: It hasn’t been officially cancelled, but the writing is on the wall here, and here, and here. That said, the show must go on, and so must the scoop: Dylan Baker, in addition to his imminent encore as The Good Wife‘s wily Colin Sweeney, is due back to NBC’s musical drama next Tuesday, as Karen’s dad. “My wife Becky [Ann, who plays Mama Cartwright] was not available, so I had to come back solo to check in on Karen, see what she’s up to,” TV’s go-to guest star tells us. And did daddy’s little girl make him proud? “She has this killer song in the episode” — Hit List‘s “Broadway Here I Come” — Baker reports, “that she knocked out of the park.”

Question: I’ve been waiting weeks for any news on Game of Thrones and still none! Any spoilers you can toss my way? —Laura
Ausiello: After screening the first four episodes of Season 3, I’m ready to declare it the Year of Jaime and Brienne.

Question: Just loving Arrow. Any hope for Laurel and Oliver? —Clare
Ausiello: Though in this Wednesday’s episode Oliver is there to console Felicity in the wake of this tragic incident (for which she blames herself), know that by hour’s end, the tough guy bravely reaches out to his ex, having decided he’s “tired of living on an island.”

Question: Big Bang Theory season finale scoopage, please? —Carlos
Ausiello: Producers are eschewing a big splashy event (like last year’s Howard-Bernadette nups) in favor of “an intimate” episode, per exec producer Chuck Lorre. “[It’s a] small story that’s meaningful to the characters and to us as writers on the show.” Adds fellow EP Bill Prady: “It’s a really good character story.” Hmm… Are Sheldon and Amy about to — don’t do it Michael… it’s too obvious… you’re better than that… you’ll be judged as harshly as Jenna… — bang?

  1. Kat says:

    Hate Laurel… SHe doesn’t have chemistry with Oliver or Tommy… She is really boring.
    They both should get somebody better… Oliver preferably Felicity:)
    I know how the comics went , but that’s a show and like with every show they never stick completely with the story line, at least that’s my hope when it comes to the live portion of Arrow

    • 4tris says:

      Oh yeah you guys are acting very adult alright, bravo. If Laurel is crap as you say and your ship is all that. Im sure you have nothing to worry about . You have no reason to be threatened at all with this little spoiler, and no reason to spew hate comments. You will “win” with no effort at all, go and rejoice.

      @Julie Come off the hypocrisy, so you are allowed to say your opinions Im not. Yes you are in for a rude awakening. Me saying it or not is not going to stop that.

      • Julie says:

        Oh for goodness sake, I don’t know why I’m bothering to reply…. I never said you couldn’t have an opinion. But stop trying to call someone a “hater” because they disagree with you! No one is attacking you for having your opinion, so why are you taking this so personally? It’s a show and a comic and people are going to like or dislike certain characters. Stop trying to start fights when there is no need to.

        • 4tris says:

          I dont know why Im bothering to reply to u either.
          A “hater” is someone who hates, so were Im i going wrong. If you do it, then you should be able to carry your crown, why the shame.

  2. Tessa says:

    Interesting that Tamara is sticking around, does that mean she will go to neverland in the finale? Will we find out who she really is? Can’t wait for Hook to be back – hope he gets lots of interactions with everyone especially Emma.

  3. Jamie says:

    Yep ouat. 10 bucks the taser steals magic .,,

  4. Kate says:

    Have I missed any new clues about the blind item from a few months ago about a couple breaking up by the end of the season? I keep looking, but It seems like it just disappeared. Maybe it’s not happening after all, which would be fine with me! I hope we hear something soon!

  5. Katrin says:

    As for BONES, personally I would assume it’s the “intern of the week”… I’d love for it to be ANGELA, I really would want to see that, but I mean, she’s usually not in close proximity to the victims/bodies, so I don’t see that happening… I would think it would be lame if they would pull THE SAME stunt on Cam AGAIN… it was just like that in Season 2 where she almost died and was rescued last minute, so personally, I hope, it’s someone else, and I would find Angela most interesting… she’s the only one that hasn’t been in a “life threatening” situation yet, right? I mean, like buried alive, getting shot, getting kidnapped whatsoever…
    Or maybe it’s Sweets… that would probably make his character more interesting for an episode or such :P But I don’t see him close to the bodies either, so… probably not…

    My money’s on the “intern of the week”… ;-) If he survives I would be all for Wendell, but I rather think it’s someone “closer” to the team, like Arastoo or Finn… they love to do that to their interns… and probably kill them XD

  6. Becca says:

    Can’t wait for Castle!

  7. Billy says:

    Oh my god , those Oliver/Laurel shipper are nut jobs.Just keep telling yourself that your OTP is endgame lol.
    Oliver/The huntress all the way. Felicity is great, though.

  8. sophia7470 says:

    Interesting Arrow scoop – I’m in the Oliver/Felicity camp. I don’t know the comics, so I’m going purely by what I see on screen – and what I see on screen is potential for something to develop between Oliver and Felicity. That’s the relationship that’s interested me most so far, so I hope they develop it further. I’m sad to hear that it’s Laurel he turns to at the end of the episode, rather than sharing with Felicity, but we’ll see how it plays out in the ep.

    It’s early days, but I don’t see chemistry between Oliver and Laurel – she’s just not very nice to him. She’s not very nice to anyone actually, including her boyfriend and her father. She has her reasons, but so far she’s mostly just come across as petulant.

    I’m going to need to see something different on screen if I’m going to come round to the idea that her and Oliver are a worthy ‘end game’ or ‘soul mates’. Haven’t seen it yet.

    Interesting Bones scoop – I’m wondering if it’s Angela’s turn to face a life threatening situation as that hasn’t happened before. Also, considering she’s been fairly apathetic this season about her role at the Jeffersonian, perhaps having a near death experience will affirm her belief that the work they do at the lab – catching dangerous people – is of vital importance.

    • RichieS says:

      Why can’t Oliver date both Laurel and Felicity? He was w/o female companionship for 5 years so I’m sure there’s enough passion there for two ladies. Actually, why not McKenna too?

  9. Tom says:

    “There’s some lingerie” featured in the milestone outing. “

    But since Castle is usually shot in near total darkness, how will we know? They could claim there will be a special guest appearance by Jimmy Hoffa and it would be hard to dispute it.

  10. Ren Falke says:

    A little correction on the TEEN WOLF blurb. The premiere date is actually the 3rd of June and there was never any talk about killing off Jackson for the premiere – he could have died in the s2 finale, but after s2 and Colton announced his intentions to leave, they always said they’d leave the spot open for him, if he ever wanted to return.

  11. “…the Year of Jaime and Brienne”

    You made my heart soar with those words! That is one of my favorite story-lines in the books and I can’t wait to see it played out on screen.

  12. Katie says:

    Forget Oliver and Laurel! The reason question on everyone’s lips is Oliver and Felicity. They crack, snapple and pop chemistry!

    Can the ex-Laurel. Laurel and Oliver are not doing it for me. They just don’t fit!

  13. When will the CW announce if Beauty and the Beast will be back? The suspense is killing me…

  14. Nan says:

    I can’t believe the Glee was even renewed…who watches this show anymore?
