Question: Do you have anything particularly scandalous about the season finale of Scandal you can share? —Daniela
Ausiello: I see what you did there. Scandalous. Scandal. Clever. I may steal that for next week’s AA. In the meantime, conventional wisdom points to the elusive mole being unmasked in the May 16 finale. Kerry Washington, meanwhile, points to it being the person you’d least expect. “It’s so shocking,” the actress tells us with a huge, hearty laugh. “So, so shocking. And so good. One of the things the show does so well is they mostly do these, like, one-two or one-two-three punches. So it’s not usually one cliffhanger; it’s usually a shock, and then another couple of shocks — and that’s kind of how that goes down.”

Question: Will Glee‘s Blaine actually go through with the marriage proposal to Kurt? Hope not. They’re freakin’ teenagers! —Jonathan
Ausiello: That’s just the kind of common sense advice Blaine needs right now. Cue a special appearance by Kurt’s pa, Burt! “Blaine is considering marrying Kurt and [I offer] my point of view on that,” Mike O’Malley tells TVLine of his May 2 encore. “I had some beautiful scenes with Darren Criss, who is just turning into such a remarkable actor. Well, turning into, he was – but this year they’ve given him strong, strong material and a really nice, beautiful arc to play. And oftentimes, my scenes with him are triangulated with the presence of Chris Colfer, and in this episode, they’re not. I have one really beautiful scene with just Darren, and I loved it.”

Question: After Monday’s Bones finale, can you divert our attention for a bit and tell us a bit more about Bones‘ Season 9 episode “El Carnicero en el Coche” that the cast and crew are shooting right now? From a pic that David Boreanaz tweeted, it appears that Sweets might have quit his job. —Rex
Ausiello: It’s the second episode of Season 9 and, yes, it revolves around Sweets’ new gig. As exec producer Stephen Nathan reveals, the events of the season finale will drive the Jeffersonian’s resident shrink out the door. “He has some leave coming from the FBI, and considering all the stress and guilt he feels after Pelant’s [latest killing spree], he decides to take his leave and explore another opportunity,” Nathan previews. “We’re going to see in Sweets that crime-fighting isn’t the only thing he’s focused on. We’re going to open up his life a little more.” Nathan, however, stresses that the leave is only a temporary one, adding, “He’s going to be around. He’s just going to explore his character a little bit more.”

good wife finaleQuestion: Is the vote-tampering secret between Peter and Will going to resurface on The Good Wife next season? Seems too juicy of a storyline to just let end in the finale. —Kathy
Ausiello: I’m with you, Kath. Even though Peter didn’t end up needing those votes to win, it could still wreak havoc on his political career — and jeopardize his relationship with Alicia. But as Josh Charles points out, even if the political scandal stays under wraps, it still “adds a really neat dynamic” to Peter and Will’s relationship. “It’s now something that lives between them,” he adds, “Whether that becomes something that’s explored literally — or it’s just there sort of hanging in the air – will remain to be seen.” Speaking of The Good Wife, series co-creators Robert and Michelle King have agreed to answer reader questions about the finale. So, stop what you’re doing, compose a really intelligent question pertaining to the finale and/or Season 5, and send it to askausiello@tvline.com with the words “Good Wife Q” in the subject line.

Question: Do you have any scoop on Grey’s Anatomy? —BP
Ausiello: If you are among the few who believe that this Owen/Ethan storyline will have a shiny, happy ending — with the motherless, potentially fatherless lad skipping off to live with his grandma Nancy — I’d like to introduce you to this thing called television. “There are a lot of interesting twists coming up, ones that I did not expect,” All My Children alum Jennifer Bassey, who plays Nancy, tells us. “It will really tear your heart out…. It’s heavy-duty stuff!” In other Grey’s news, Shonda Rhimes tweeted the following finale tease on Tuesday and I can’t get it out of my damn head! “On set at Grey’s. A piece of this scene was so top-secret that I had to whisper it to the director instead of writing it in the script.” Anyone by chance know what supermarket Rob Corn shops at? E-mail me privately at askausiello@tvline.com.

Question: I have a Q about Once Upon a Time and its potential spin-off: If we decide not to watch the spin-off, will we still understand everything that’s going on in Once Upon a Time? Or are the two shows completely connected? Thanks! —Emily
Ausiello: Worry not. Should the Wonderland-based limited-run offshoot get the green light from ABC on May 14 — and even though Barbara Hershey’s Cora and even Lana Parrilla’s Regina could appear in flashbacks — “It is intended to exist as its own thing,” says Once cocreator Eddy Kitsis. Adds Adam Horowitz, “If you’ve never seen Once, you can actually watch Wonderland and not worry.”

Question: Got any scoop on Revenge, Once Upon a Time, Nashville, Hannibal or Orphan Black? —Danae
Ausiello: On the Once Upon a Time front, expect to see Mulan, Aurora and Prince Phillip once again, before the season is over. And lest you think Regina’s “trigger” to implode Storybrooke is just a MacGuffin for us to gaze upon and imagine its potential, “We’re definitely going to see what that black diamond does,” EP Eddy Kitsis warns.

schmidtQuestion: I know its unlikely, because she’s on Nurse Jackie, but what are the odds that Merritt Wever will keep showing up on New Girl? I love her with Max Greenfield! – Kasey
Ausiello: “That’s definitely sort of up in the air,” says series creator Liz Meriwether. “I certainly hope so. She’s great.” The scene Wever and Greenfield share in tonight’s “Virgins” episode – a must-watch – is an example of what Meriwether calls “a lot of really great chemistry and fullness” between Schmidt and his college girlfriend. “She doesn’t take any of his bulls—t, and is pushing him to be a better person. That’s what he’s struggling with and what their arc is as a couple.” So you wanted odds? I’d say it’s at 5/2. (Full-disclosure: I have no clue what those numbers mean.)

Question: So we know there are ghosts appearing on The Vampire Diaries soon. Do you know if any characters are actually getting resurrected permanently? Or are they all just ghosts? —Audrey
Ausiello: Rumor has it that one resurrection may stick.

Question: I need some Vampire Diaries scoop on Caroline. —Calleigh
Ausiello: These 15 words will leave her mouth in the May 16 season finale, per exec producer Julie Plec: “Come hell or high water, hell will freeze over before I let anybody cancel graduation.” As Plec explains, “The instinct to miss graduation is going to be on [everyone’s] minds because there’s greater things afoot. And Caroline, as we know, finds these moments and high school events very precious and gets very angry when anybody tries to mess with them.”

Question: What does NCIS: LA have in store for Nell and Eric? —Sophiaq
Ausiello: For the remainder of this season? Not much. For next season? At least one juicy episode. “We’re actually [about to] shoot one episode [for Season 5] that’s apparently an Eric-Nell episode,” Barrett Foa shares. “We haven’t really checked in with them after the big Christmas-under-the-mistletoe [incident] — there hasn’t been a ton of stuff with the two of us — and I think it’s time to get that back, because I figure fans are really ready for that.”

Question: Do you know if Dalia will still be living with George next season on Suburgatory? I love that dynamic. I hope it doesn’t go away just because George and Dallas broke up. —Tania H
Ausiello: I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it sounds like it’s going away. “Dalia will really want to remain part of George’s world, but given what has gone on with her and Tessa, how realistic is that?” muses series creator Emily Kapnek. “It will be really hard for George to justify spending time with Dalia. It will hurt him probably to turn his back on her. Until Dalia and Tessa can reconcile, there really is no place for Dalia to go with that. I imagine that she would be really upset and hurt, and probably take some of this stuff out on Dallas, blaming her for the loss of Daddy Altman.”

The Sword‚Äôs EdgeQuestion: Should we be worried that The CW hasn’t renewed Nikita yet? —Soso
Ausiello: I don’t think so. I’m told the reason Nikita wasn’t included in last week’s CW pickups was because series creator Craig Silverstein was in Virginia shooting his AMC pilot Turn and therefore unable to pitch his Season 4 plan to the network. He’s now back in L.A. and due to meet with CW brass in the coming days. Bottom line: The show is still a safe bet for a (shortened) fourth season.

Question: Will we meet Sherlock Holmes’ dad this season on Elementary? —Nola
Ausiello: We put that exact question to showrunner Rob Doherty. His response? “I’m not telling.” The EP did, however, confirm that the message Joan received in response to her request to stay on as the investigator’s sober companion “did come from Sherlock’s father,” and that it’s “no coincidence that the dad’s first initial is M. We anticipated and looked forward to some discussion about that.” Are you thinking what we’re thinking?!

Question: Since NBC renewed Law & Order: SVU for next season before Mariska Hargitay signed her contract (as opposed to last year), does this mean she is having trouble with her negotiations? Are they trying to get rid of her? —Jessica
Ausiello: What’chu talkin’ ’bout, Willis? Her deal is done. She’s returning. End of story. (Unless you know something I don’t. Which is possible. But unlikely.)

Question: Any scoop on this Wednesday’s season finale on The Americans? —La-Shauna
Ausiello: The Jennings’ laundry room — you know, the one where they keep some of their spy stuff — plays a key role.

Question: Call me crazy, but as a denizen of NBC’s old 227-Golden Girls-Amen Saturday-night programming bloc, I’m kinda digging Smash inhabiting a similar position on the Peacock net’s current lineup. I have to say, though, that there hasn’t been enough of Anjelica Huston’s Eileen — or her take-no-prisoners hilarity — the last few episodes. Any scoop? —Katrina
Ausiello: What? No love for Hunter? (Shakes head.) Despite that snub, Katrina, I’ve got good news for you: Eileen’s ne’er-do-well ex Jerry is back in the picture on this Saturday’s episode (with a pretty young thing in tow). And without giving too much away, let’s just say Eileen gets her fingers around Jerry’s martini glass before she’s even finished her first sentence in their conversation.

smashQuestion: I’m still reeling from the cliffhanger at the end of last week’s Smash — with Kyle stepping in front of those screeching headlights. They’re not seriously gonna make me yell, “Oh my God, they killed Kyle!”, are they? —Brent
Ausiello: Would you settle for some intel on the show’s other unresolved cliffhanger — the one with Karen asking Derek, “Are you gonna walk me home or what?” Let’s just say that the tousled director makes it all the way up to his leading lady’s apartment, that the duo knocks back a room-spinning amount of vino and that — grab your smelling salts! — Cartwills fans will be hitting the rewind buttons on their DVRs. That is, at least, till somebody delivers the line, “I was a total ass. I always am. I ruin everything.” (Cue sad trombone.)

Question: Long time reader, first time question asker. I am so glad to know that you too are an Orphan Black fan. Any scoop to share? —Vanessa
Ausiello: Party at Alison’s house this week, and it’s a doozy! As the characters and storylines converge on her abode, “Clone antics ensue,” previews EP Graeme Manson with a laugh. “And Felix is right in the middle of it, which is fun, too.”

Question: My hart broke when Zoe/Wade broke up on Hart of Dixie. They didn’t get nearly enough time “together.” Please tell me Zoe gives Wade another chance! —Lauren
Ausiello: I see what you did there. Hart. Hart of Dixie. Clever. I may steal that for next week’s AA. In the meantime, exec producer Leila Gerstein insists Wade’s infidelity and the pair’s subsequent breakup “was never intended to be the end” of their story. “It is a long series [and] we expect to do many, many, many more episodes of this show,” she adds of the recently renewed dramedy. “And they’re not even done for this season! There will be another connection between Zoe and Wade before the season is over. I would certainly tell ‘Zade’ fans out there that they should not be giving up hope.”

That’s a wrap! Please send questions, comments, and anonymous tips to askausiello@tvline.com. (Additional reporting by Vlada Gelman, Kim Roots and Michael Slezak)

  1. Justin says:

    “I had some beautiful scenes with Darren Criss, who is just turning into such a remarkable actor.” is literally the funniest sentence I’ve read. Has Mike delved in stand-up comedy?

    • Spencer says:

      Preach!!!!!!

    • Sue B says:

      Well, um. They are…scenes. Remarkably mediocre? And what about Chris’s brilliant acting and Kurt’s arc?

    • Jess says:

      LOL Exactly.

    • Emily says:

      There was nothing that implied he said all that with a straight face

    • Alex says:

      lol bitter

    • LP says:

      Nice of Mike to lie about Darren’s abilities as a actor. Go away already.

    • Cheri says:

      Say it again. Who is a remarkable actor? This is Mike O’Malley.

    • Michael says:

      You all are incredibly ugly people to attack this kid for absolutely no reason whatsoever. I hope that your lives are as ugly as your opinions.(And I’m not even a fan of Glee).

    • David says:

      I stumbled upon this site by accident, and was about to leave when I noticed that there was a discussion about Glee, a favorite show of mine. After reading your comments on whether this person is a remarkable actor, or that person is terrible, all I can say is, “Really?”

      Is there anyone else out there like me who watches the show just because it’s full of great musical performances? It almost seems that the show is less and less about having a story line – rather it seems to be more about singing and dancing.

      Just relax and enjoy! I’ve no doubt ruffled some feathers by my opinion, and I sincerely apologize to those viewers. But come on, people!

  2. Becky says:

    Darren’s acting could be described as remarkable, it’s true. Remarkable in how awful it is. His line delivery in the break-up scene is probably one of the worst instances of acting in the last 4 years of the show.

    • fk says:

      Darren is a good performer and to be nice he is a mediocre actor.

      • Raven says:

        Yes I agree with this. His stage performance is great, but his acting is kinda “cardboard”. Especially when compared to some of his other castmates. But I do like his voice better than a lot of them which is probably why he’s still on the show.

        Samuel Larson is another one. Not the best actor but his voice is fantastic, yet he never gets any songs.

  3. heather says:

    lol darren criss as a remarkable actor? i can’t stop laughing

    • Elly says:

      Remarkable? Hardly. Better than half on that show? Absolutely. Looking at you, marley rose.

      • heather says:

        marley rose is a useless character but even melissa benoist’s creepy wide-eyed acting is better than whatever the heck darren does with his lines

      • dude says:

        Melissa Benoist is a good actress. Don’t project your feelings for her character.

        • she is boring face it says:

          No she really isn’t. She as a actress should have come up with some way to make her character interesting by now. Look at Sugar she barely has lines and more people miss her than Marley She has done nothing to make her Marley someone we care about.

          • Cheri says:

            Marley is as intriguing as wax paper. I adore Sugar even with her 5 scenes in 2 seasons of Glee.

    • marie says:

      i’m laughing with you

    • Jaime04 says:

      He HAS gotten much better this season. I’m glad you have obviously watched every single episode this season and can make that educated comment.

      • JJ says:

        No. Darren is still mediocre, and overused on the show.

      • ana says:

        Actually, I think he has gotten worse. I used to think he could at least do comedy, but his scene with Becky and Roz Washington show me that he can’t- Someone should tell him that he doesn’t need to use every single muscle in his face to show an emotion.

        • JJ says:

          Derp faces are all he’s got going for him, and it’s what makes the fangirls go all gaga over him.

        • Bekah says:

          I’m sorry. But Darren is an incredible actor. He was also raised with TRUE acting. AKA, the stage. There is a reason he uses his facial muscles, because good actors know how to make a facial expression seen all the way across a theatre that sits 3,000 people. You don’t go to University of MI and major in theatre and come out not knowing how to act. I think the saddest part of all is that you all don’t recognize true talent when it’s in front of your faces – literally. So maybe you should be less worried about Darren’s acting abilities and more concerned with the fact you’re sitting on a couch watching TV while Darren is fulfilling a life dream.

          • Elly says:

            Hunny, I’m guessing your younger than 18. When you’re starry eyed about a crush, it’s easy to overlook certain things. I like Darren Criss-he’s got a great voice, he’s cute to look at, and yes, he can act-at a acceptable level. Remarkable? No, maybe someday. He has a certain level of reaction and it never changes. Chris Colfer is a remarkable actor, Jane Lynch is probably the best on the show, Mike O’ Malley is an awesome actor, Lea Michelle bugs the bejesus out of me, but even she’s a good actor. Darren Criss is not on those levels yet. Maybe with different material in the future.

  4. Elly says:

    I feel like this whole “destroying Story Brooke” thing is turning into “We have to go back to the island!” And we know how that turned out…..at least in some people’s opinions.

    • Jess says:

      But then again it took 3-4 seasons to leave the island and in this scenario Storybrooke is the island. So if it’s in fact destroyed, the only way to go back is probably to make another curse, which most likely won’t happen anytime soon.

    • Joe says:

      Could be a chance to revive the show which frankly has not had a great season, and there is only so much to do in storybrooke. I’m willing to see where this goes, if it gets rid of at least Greg or Tamara, I’ll be happy.

      • Alice says:

        I agree. Nicki and Paulo- err Greg and Tamara need to go. Worst villains ever. “We know how to kill magical creatures” I laugh every time I hear her try to make that sound impressive.

        • Just saying says:

          I don’t watch this show but kudos for the LOST reference!!

        • Elly says:

          Haha ditto- Gregaulo and Tamikki need to go. I love Ethan Embry in any other aspect but he’s not a great villain.

          • jo says:

            I can’t take him seriously because Empire Records was on a couple of weeks ago and I just see him as the stoner with the cheesy grin.

      • Edith says:

        This. All of this. They’ve wasted Storybrooke, really, and all the interesting things have happened in the Enchanted Forest or somewhere other than Maine. Looking forward to seeing what happens here.

      • lyn says:

        I’d stay in SB just for the available hygiene products. Back in FTL everyone must smell awful.

  5. Tanya Parker says:

    I just need Jeremy Gilbert back … Or Alaric. Please.

  6. Zayne says:

    Wow, Blaine haters are a passionate bunch. Seems excessive.

    So why is Bones already filming season 9? Aren’t they a couple months early?

  7. fudgefase says:

    Loving the casting of Mik thingymabob as Hannibal – but a lot less keen on Hugh D as Graham. Is the series likely to be renewed or will it sink like a corpse weighed down with stones?

  8. Sam says:

    I haven’t watched Glee in over a year but has Darren Criss magically learn how to act properly since then?

  9. PLP says:

    Smash is such a good show! Something with Steven Spielberg attached to it, would have to be! It may be too well done if that’s a bad thing….which it isn’t. I want to see what Julia and Tom do with the Great Gatsby next season! C’mon NBC….give quality a chance!

  10. Pia says:

    I think the point of the vote-tampering on The Good Wife is where there is one stuffed ballot box, there likely are more. Peter won in a complete landslide that the polling hadn’t foreshadowed at all. It will be interesting to see how the story line plays out.

  11. Waltzy says:

    So season 4 of “Glee” in a nutshell is Blaine just rehashing Kurt’s story lines but with better outcomes? And it’s gotten to the point where Blaine and Burt have solo scenes but Kurt and Burt don’t? Who is Darren Criss blowing on that show?

  12. James says:

    if Sherlock’s dad turns out to be Moriarty I’ll be done with the show, because that is so retarded, Mycroft would be equally stupid IMO. I’m guessing the blind item wasn’t bones i guess we’ll have to wait, still don’t think its Castle wishful thinking perhaps.

    • Jess says:

      Something tells me that even if he’s not Moriarty or Mycroft you’d still think it was stupid. Give the writers a chance dude.

    • Liz says:

      Never seen this Sherlock. Just find it horrible not the whole Watson being a women(girl power)but its not the same without Cummbridge, Freemen & Moffat. But that would just be a horrible horrible turn if it was Moriarty or Myceoft. Watch the new series!

      • moobear says:

        You can’t compare the two, the BBC is a yearly’ish miniseries, while the American version is a traditional 20+ episodes show, and we’ve been remaking Holmes and company so many times you can watch both and enjoy them as completely different beasts. House, Monk and Psych are gone or going, so don’t be surprised when the reincarnation of these characters pop up next season or the season after, Hollywood believes in recycling.

    • scooby says:

      You’re kidding, right? Based on what I heard about the Bones finale, sure sounded like they were the blind item (w/update,etc.). Did I misread something?

  13. Sarah says:

    I’d say Glee’s obsession with Darren Criss turned me off to the show forever, but really they destroyed the show in so many other ways it’s not fair to blame it all on him. He was painful to watch though.

    • alex says:

      I agree, I liked season 1-2, then all this darren criss ass kissing became too gross to watch. I was even his sorta fan when never been kissed aired but soon I realised that how mediocre actor he is. He ruined Glee for me. All his scenes have been skip for me.

  14. Teddie says:

    Kurt and Blaine’s arc on Glee has been the most consistent in terms of clear progression (a few weird gleetours) , but did lack more Kurt. The rest of the stories & characters have been all over the map especially as they try to make people care about the new characters (hint no)

    • Mo says:

      A really low bar and it doesn’t get a pass when the entire arc has been from the viewpoint of the cheater.

      • alex says:

        I hate how glee embraces cheater and gives no arc to Kurt. It’s like we only see how and when blaine’s gonna be ready for Kurt again but never get any kurt side of this. I hate glee so much because of this.

    • JJ says:

      Let’s talk about what Blaine has done to regain Kurt’s trust since cheating on him. He lead a girl on. He crushed on a straight guy for a quarter of the season. Most recently, he checked out a guy in aerobics class. Blaine is more concerned about playing super hero and hair gel than he is about Kurt. There has been no progression in the relationship.

      • Daniel says:

        Only a rabid Blaine hater would call getting groped while unconscious and screamed at for being gay “leading a girl on”. Having a crush isn’t something you can control and Blaine didn’t even want to act on it. And finally Blaine has eyes and looked at a cute guy, gather the lynch mob folks.

        Meanwhile Blaine and Kurt have actually been in each others lives and Blaine has made it clear to Kurt that he will be there for him as a friend and also there for his sick dad but will also be waiting for the day Kurt wants to get back together.

        • alex says:

          Yeah well he should have tried harder when he wanted to win Kurt back, I will be so disappointed in Kurt when he just takes blaine back, but it’s glee, Kurt doesn’t matter, that was season 2, what matters is blaine’s dick

  15. guest says:

    extremely happy with the Hart of Dixie spoiler!

  16. Vanica says:

    If Alaric comes back on Vampire Diaries I will lose my mind with happiness. Loved the character and he is definitely missed!

    • Torontogirl98 says:

      I agree, he is the one loss that still kills me. I feel bad Cult was cancelled but so stoked if Alaric come back!

    • Alice says:

      Seriously! His show tanked, so the actor is available, but I thought he wanted to leave tVD in the first place?
      It might be one of the originals, so that they have more cast members for the new show.
      I hope it’s not Jeremy. They’ll have burned down the house for nothing.

      • Torontogirl98 says:

        In all the interviews I have seen Matt seems to love the cast, and they all love him. But maybe there was more happening behind the scenes

  17. Just have Owen adopt the boy on Grey’s Anatomy. The kid is already about 10 so Christina wouldn’t have do lift a finger in terms of mothering, which we all know she doesn’t want to do.

  18. Haie says:

    Argh, I hope that means at least one kiss between Karen and Derek before the finale. I’ve been waiting for 26 ep, it’s about time…

  19. Liz says:

    I’m expecting for Jeremy to be the one who will be back permanently on TVD, but I really want it to be Alaric. I have missed him so much this season.

  20. July says:

    So, with gazillions questions that fans make about Glee… they have to PICK THAT ONE? My ass.

  21. JC says:

    “I figure fans are really ready for that.” Not this fan. Seriously, am I the only one that cringes over the Eric/Nell thing? It’s the only part of the show I hate.

  22. ketchikan9 says:

    Scandal: Mellie’s the mole.

  23. Rachel says:

    aurora, mulan, and Phillip are coming back?! YESSSS, I actually might start watching once again!

  24. tahina says:

    Shonda Rhimes humility at it’s worst. :0(

  25. ollie says:

    I would have to disagree, bringing those 3 back is whats wrong with this season of ouat, too many new people that no one cares about. I hated that they broke up zade and having zoe go after george last week but i still like hod but dont want zade to happen again after his cheating.

  26. Luli says:

    Why the hell a shortened season for nikita??????? It deserves a FULL season 4!!!!

  27. Dana Kiehl says:

    Thanks for continuing to post Smash spoilers. I thought that would end once it moved to burn off Saturday

  28. Ian says:

    I would have given my left tit for Karofsky to come back into Kurt having an actual storyline this season, but we never even saw Adam again, it’s all Blaine all the time. This show used to be so much better, what are you doing RIB??? And I love Mike O’Malley bringing up the issue of Darren’s acting, you’re just calling attention to it because you know how questionable it is!

    And my head is spinning at the possibilities of who the mole could shockingly be on Scandal, no use even speculating. Can’t wait to just watch and die, lol.

    And you just know the resurrection on TVD will be Jeremy, if anyone. He’s Elena’s precious brother, and his return would be lynchpin to her flicking the humanity switch on again. I’d hope it wouldn’t be that predictable, but it’s inevitable, really.

    Seriously, after that gawd awful season ending finale for Bones you give us spoilers on Sweets. Are you trying to kill us off completely. Best news all week, hope Sweets goes on a season long LOA.

  30. Jennifer says:

    I’m totally geeked SVU got 11th season and glad Olivia will be back. NOW will somebody PLEASE make Raul’s ADA Barba a regular!??

  31. Adrienne says:

    Why is it a shortened season for Nikita when it’s renewed?

    • H says:

      Because the people at the CW are complete morons and they only care about their stupid Vampire Diaries and Arrow.

    • lll says:

      Nikita hasn’t been renewed yet, and if it does, TVLine, TVBTN, Deadline and other websites believe that it will get shortened because it may be their final season.

  32. ... says:

    LOL at the two idiots who posted as waltzy and alltherattlesnakes. And the Darren haters here are only creating things for everyone to laugh at. Go cry into your cheerios more about how *insert fave here* is no longer on Glee.

    • Babygate says:

      Speaking for one, my fave is still in Glee and saying that Blaine haters are being laughed at is a pretty big stretch considering that there are so many. In reality, anyone that so enthusiastically defends him becomes suspect to anyone that has been paying enough attention to see that Blaine was meant to be a background player there to support Kurt. But Ryan loves him so he moved up the latter real quick. That doesn’t mean that his talent level supports the attention he gets.

      • Daniel says:

        Kurt and Santana were meant to be background players to support the stories of Rachel, Finn, and Will. But audiences loved them, like audiences love Blaine, and the writers responded to that. So unless you’re going to complain about those changes too, you need to sit down. Darren is obviously a very talented fellow, and the angry internet rants of a few unnecessarily jealous people don’t change all the praise he does get from various sources (fans, media, other actors and various people in the business, critics). Besides, once the graduates left, the focus was naturally going to fall (or should have) on who remained. This did happen with Blaine, Sam, Brittany, and Tina to a lesser extent, though unfortunately Artie, Sugar, and Joe were sidelined in favor of the new characters. If you want to talk about characters Ryan loves and insists on pushing, it’s the newbies, whose reception has been lukewarm at best across the board.

          Someone has boner, why else so blind

        • Cheri says:

          Many parts I agree with you. The new cast has not engaged the audience, especially me. I cannot tolerate Lima. Blaine is overused in singing, performances, and story lines. He and Marley are so caricature. So bland and lifeless. I still here Blaine say in the choir room when Sam sung Copacabana. Go Sam so fake. Everyone else, Artie, just a great character lost in the background to Blaine, Marley and Jake.

  33. mia says:

    I do so hope they bring Rose McGowan back for the Wonderland spinoff. She was so ridiculously fantastic, I just want to see more of her Cora.
    .
    Also, yay more Mulan + Aurora!!

    • lll says:

      Once Upon a Time is dead on with their casting. Rose McGowan made a great Cora because she looks like her and sounds like her with no effort. Another good casting is Bailee as young Snow White. Anyway I can’t wait for the spinoff. Not looking forward to seeing Mulan and Aurora but whatever.

    • Queen of Hearts says:

      Barbara’s Cora is the Queen of Hearts. If Cora is in the Wonderland spinoff then it will be, and should be, her. I’d much prefer to see her anyway. I wasn’t keen on Rose.

  34. I just sent this question in. I hope it’s something. “A recent episode of Arrow had a scene with Thea and Roy in which a substantially large question mark could be clearly seen. Is this a hint at a future appearance by The Question, aka Vic Sage, on Arrow?”

  35. dude says:

    Nikita will not be renewed for a shortened season. It will be getting a full season. There’s no way that they’d give it a shortened season this close to syndication when they only renewed it for seasons three (and possibly) four to get it to syndication.

  36. JJ says:

    Has Mike O’Malley even watched an episode of Glee this season? Or is he seeing some version of Glee that the rest of the world isn’t seeing? Because anyone who isn’t a Blaine stan sees a mediocre at best actor and a character that is in CANON a whiny, needy, attention seeking cheater who falls in love with any guy and runs around in super hero costumes who happens to be nearby without given a second thought about the ex he cheated on when he isn’t around (unless he is trying to blame him or use him as an excuse for something). What a shame that Ryan has to saddle his most compelling and Golden Globe winning actor with a mediocre actor to please the fan girls and his own little fantasies.

    • Sue B says:

      I agree with everything you’ve posted. I can’t wait for them to release Chris from his contract so he can resume working with material that is worthy of his extreme talents. Even he can’t make Darren into anything better than a mediocre actor, not that the writing helps anyone. Blaine is an awful character, I don’t understand how he can want to propose to his ex when they aren’t even dating, and Klaine makes no sense. It’s astounding that even with the plummeting ratings, FOX renewed Glee for two more seasons. I miss seasons one and two.

    • Fran says:

      To be fair- what’s Mike O’Malley going to say? That he’s a bad actor? He’s too nice for that.

      • JJ says:

        Oh, I agree. I know that Mike can’t bad mouth an actor he works with, or the writers on the show. It’s just at the point where a large part of the fandom is tired of hearing everyone speak of Darren like he is the second coming of Jesus Christ, and that he is a better actor than he actually is. Darren works best on the show when he is used in a minimal role as a supporting actor, and not as the main focus. Blaine as a character is so badly written that he is beyond repair, and it is really unfortunate that Kurt, the most inspirational character on the show, has been pulled down with him all to please the fangirls.

  37. CP says:

    I NEED Alaric back on The Vampire Diaries. I can’t get my fix of him now that they cancelled Cult. Plus Damon needs his drinking buddy back!

  38. Kurtmatters says:

    I miss when Kurt had focus and stories of his own on Glee and wasn’t always triangulated with Blaine.

  39. Natasha says:

    MARISKAAAAA <3

  40. Romy says:

    Just hope they won’t have Burt okay with Blaine proposing to Kurt when he was so dissaproving of Finn asking Rachel

  41. Annie says:

    I want Jeremy back!!!

  42. Sandra says:

    I really hope it´s Jeremy.

  43. Michael says:

    Man NIKITA NEED a FULL SEASON RENEWAL!

    • Alex says:

      WORD! Hope Ausiello is right. Nikita has to get at least a short final season to wrap things up. If they cancel it now, it’ll be a travesty.

  44. Zorkel567 says:

    Has NCIS: Los Angeles really already begun filming an episode of Season 5? That seems… early.

  45. Paige says:

    It’s awesome that the Blaine/Darren haters have taken over and just keep posting comments under different names – especially when the user names they have chosen are well known in fandom as being fans of Darren. It’s also awesome that you’re basically calling Mike O’Malley, who I’m sure we all love and respect, a liar. Stay pressed, guys. Hope to see you around for Seasons 5 and 6 of Blee.

    • alex says:

      I’m sure glee cast has to lie a LOT, you saw how Amber said how she didn’t like brittany comments about unique/mercedes? and then said that she just has to ignore it?

  46. Julie says:

    Can’t wait for the Burt/Blaine scenes on Glee! I agree with Mike – Blaine’s arc has been great this year, and I’m excited to see him (maybe!) propose!

  47. Jay says:

    I love Mike’s comments about Darren. I think he has improved leaps and bounds, and has had some really great scenes this year. Looking forward to more good stuff soon!

    • alex says:

      what great scenes? him showing off his ass and crotch?

      • Jay says:

        Off the top of my head – his scenes with Sam during ‘Dynamic Duets’, the performance of Teenage Dream, his scenes in Shooting Star….

        • July says:

          Too melodramatics, not belieavable which resumes all in: TERRIBLE ACTOR. Don’t confound loving a character and actor by saying that he’s a good actor when he’s clearly not. Have a nice life.

  48. actually alltherattlesnakes says:

    I’m really looking forward to the Blaine/Burt scene (Ausiello editorializing aside); their scene alone in season 2 was great and this one is by all accounts beautiful and a tear jerker. I also can’t wait to see the Kurt/Burt/Carole scene and (fingers crossed) get some good news regarding Burt’s health.
    And of course what we’re all hoping for: a Klaine reunion.

  49. Ollie says:

    So many negative people in the comments! I think the proposal story line is going to be really sweet and heartfelt (especially with the addition of Patty Duke and Meredith Baxter) and I can’t wait to see how it all plays out! I think Kurt and Blaine are a little young, yes, but it’s TV – I don’t care if its not super realistic. They are a very inspiring couple and I think it would be great to see them get their happy ending! :)

    • July says:

      Sweet? First of all what Blaine and the writers need to see is that KURT BROKE UP WITH BLAINE. They’re no longer together, so why the hell is he going to propose?

  50. BurtLover says:

    I’m so glad Burt is back! Besides Kurt and Blaine he is my favourite character. I’m really looking forward to his scenes with Blaine, and also Kurt and Carole (another fave!).
