Why'd Castle Keep a Secret? Originals Adds Sexy Zip? What's the Skinny on Ichy? And More TV Qs

Enlisted300We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Castle, Sleepy Hollow, Supernatural and Nashville!

1 | Enlisted simply has to get someone from the military comedy Stripes to guest-star, right? (That’s the fact, Jack!) Or did the show give you a pleasantly M*A*S*H-like vibe, instead?

2 | Did you hear that 10 percent of the Golden Globes telecast was spent watching winners walk to the stage? Think maybe you can lay out the seating better, Beverly Hilton?

3 | After everything that’s happened, why would Revenge‘s Emily just accept Victoria’s word that her shooting rendered her infertile? Shouldn’t she have at least read the (possibly fake) doctor’s note?

4 | On The Good Wife, when exactly did Cary have time to orchestrate that elaborate Paisley Group ruse — including the drink-spilling and the misleading text from Robyn — when he had no idea Kalinda was even going to be at the bar?

5 | Did Matthew McConaughey’s gaunt frame JAE JUNG, STANA KATIC, NATHAN FILLIONdistract you a bit from True Detective‘s disturbing murder case?

6 | So, are Castle fans to believe that Rick shared with Kate almost nothing of substance from last season’s kidnapping/ Paris storyline? Also, “a friend” wants to know: What is it that “flexible” Beckett can lift….?

7 | Why did Sleepy Hollow‘s Abbie and Ichabod automatically assume that George Washington had written the date in his Bible after he reportedly died? And was it just those jeans, or does Tom Mison have much skinnier legs than you would have thought?

8 | Did it seem like The Fosters‘ Brandon dropped that “I love Callie!” a little too soon?

The Bachelor9 | What was more visually alarming during The Bachelor this week: The creepy “stylist” guy’s unexplained turquoise goatee or Renee and Victoria’s bare feet in a public restroom during the latter’s drunken meltdown?

10 | Where can we order a pool table with the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo on the felt?

11 | Do you think Trophy Wife reaped any complaints to the FCC based on the stunning length of Kate’s (hilarious) bleeped-out tirade after Warren and Hillary destroyed her iPhone?

The Originals12 | How did Supernatural‘s Dean and Sam manage to stay dry during their episode-ending convo in the rain?

13 | Which was sexier: The Originals‘ Elijah zipping up or unzipping Hayley dress? (We vote the latter.)

14 | Is the moral of the Killer Women story that trumpeting “From Executive Producer Sofia Vergara!” does not move the ratings needle?

15 | How did CBS’ Person of Interest and CSI decide whose airplane-centric episode got to use the “Fasten… Your… Seatbelt!” promo line? And speaking of the former…

16 | How many passengers, exactly, did Person of Interest‘s Reese beat-down or otherwise KO in first class without anyone on the plane noticing? And ever since POI killed off Officer Simmons, isn’t it jarring to see Robert John Burke in uniform as Law & Order: SVU‘s Sgt. Tucker?

RELATED | Spoilers on Grey’s, Glee, Big Bang, New Girl, Sleepy Hollow, Elementary and More

17 | Come, now — would Arrow‘s Sebastian Blood really have held a public, outdoor rally knowing a terrorist threat was looming? And can we hope that’s the last we’ll see of Diggle demoted to Referee for the Lovebirds?American Idol Premiere Ratings

18 | Is Nashville‘s lawyer lady officially and without a doubt the most disposable character on TV right now? And couldn’t the show have coaxed Kelly Clarkson into singing a line or two?

19 | Why couldn’t American Idol‘s J.Lo have simply kept quiet and let Harry Connick Jr. finish his explanation of the pentatonic scale during the Season 13 premiere, rather than interrupting him to say he would scare audiences with so much knowledge?

20 | When will Pawn Stars‘ Chumlee learn how to talk around his new, startlingly white veneers?

21 | The cheeky way Aisha Tyler introduced presenters at the CriticsWhatsPopN Choice Movie Awards — amusingly irreverent and un-stuffy, or just a bit cringe-worthy?

22 | TVLine reader Iakovos wonders: Shouldn’t ABC repeat Season 1 of Mistresses on Fridays or Saturdays in late winter or spring as a way to build excitement for its sophomore run?

23 | Pop quiz: Which kills more brain cells: A night of blackout drinking or a few minutes of The View‘s “What’s Pop’N With Sherri & Jenny”?

    6. Castle clearly told her he’d met his father in Paris, and something of what he’d helped with, but not that he was the man in the sketches or that he was CIA (she was very clearly angry and surprised by the fact he was harbouring a fugitive, but not by the fact he knew who his father was…)

    • scooby says:

      Yeah that’s what I took from it.

    • Rich Abey says:

      Guess so. Anyway up until Rick got his ass saved by his daddy, his main plan to save Alexis was by using that french ‘gun-for-hire’ guy…which was the general impression that Martha & Kate got initially. They didn’t know how bad things got later on, so Kate must have assumed the gun-for-hire guy must have helped Rick save Alexis. Besides he definitely did not tell Kate about meeting his dad in Paris..that much was evident from this week’s episode. Only Martha was privy to this info.

      • Apples says:

        “Besides he definitely did not tell Kate about meeting his dad in Paris”
        I don’t think this is true. She is very much not surprised by the fact that his father is there in New York- only by his connection to the case. And when she asks him why he trusts “Hunt”, he mentions because of Paris, so I think she knows that he met his father in Paris, and that he was involved in the rescue but not the details I think. Otherwise given that she knows Castle is “famously fatherless”, I think she would have reacted much more strongly to the fact that he knew who his father was and had kept it from her.

      • jenferner8 says:

        I agree about Rick never told Kate about his dad. At least never on screen, but I never got the impression Rick ever even mentioned it to anyone but his mother. When Rick took Kate into room where the dad was he (Rick) “introduced” the guy as Kate’s “future father-in-law”. I got the impression that Kate was more focused on the case and the guy’s connection then the father-in-law news. The only other explanation would be there was a scene cut from this or an earlier episode in which Rick did tell Kate.

    • DarkDefender says:

      I agree Kate knew Castle met his dad, that he went by the name Hunt, but not that he matched the picture from Alexis’ kidnapping.
      As for your “friend’s” question.. I would like to think (in my mind) that Kate Beckett is flexible in so many, many ways… that it takes years of inside jokes between Castle and her to clue us in on all those possibilities. :D

  2. l says:

    I’ve been wondering about that doctors note on Revenge too… And wouldn’t the doctor have told her directly? They have confidentially clauses at hospitals… something like that they wouldn’t just hand out… even to her husband… without talking to her first.

    • ZmaX says:

      Emily was unconscious at the time of her surgery, so her husband would be the one the doctors would have gone to with that information. And im guessing that Daniel/Victoria said they didn’t want to “overwhelm” Emily with the news so early in her recovery or something and that it would be better coming from them.

      • l says:

        The doctor would still have gone over that information with her before letting her leave the hospital.. of course they never would have, in reality, allowed her to leave the way she did on the show.

    • Sarahliz1624 says:

      They would have told Daniel. They NEVER would have given that info to the mother in law who was at the time suspected of shooting her! No, this is definitely a hoax, and if it isn’t, it’s a big whoops on the part of the writers, because there’s no way to even fake it being believable. All Victoria would have had to have said was that Daniel got the info from the doctor and I would have bought it, but when she didn’t, I didn’t believe it for a second. Plus, where he shot her, the chances of that being the result are slim. If “choices had to be made” it would require a full abdominal surgery, which her scars show that she obviously didn’t have. And if her ovaries were all that were affected, her scars are way too far away. Yeah, not buying it.

    • Tahonia says:

      I believe nothing Victoria says, but it would give her infinite (or maybe infinite squared) pleasure to tell Emily the truth in this case. I had wondered, considering where she was shot, what the implications would be.

  3. Aidan says:

    I’m sorry what? there are people out there who actually wanted to see and hear more from harry connick jr? i had to change the channel he was so horrific

  4. Kevin Lanham says:

    7. Didn’t Ichabod say he recognized the handwriting as Washington’s?

    • Samantha says:

      Yes he did, but he could have post-dated it or it could have been a notation of something that was supposed to happen that day. Assuming he wrote it after he “died” was definitely not my first thought.

    • Tahonia says:

      And as for the jeans part, Tom Mison is excessively skinny, which I noticed way back with the Scorpions episode. He definitely wears his period costume well, and the glorious wig….and his Voice! Sleepy Hollow has been a high point of this season.

    • Abby says:

      I agree. He knew the handwriting, but why assume he wrote it after he died. I still don’t get the inference even after watching the finale. (Spoiler) The letter following the date detailed his resurrection, but Ichabod hadn’t revealed that part yet. Washington could have written the date alone before he died.

  5. Jake says:

    By Harry having to school JLo doesn’t that kind of undermine the little bit of credibility that she had as a judge?

    • Tarc says:

      No. Since she’s incredibility successful, it makes her a global expert whether she’s taken music theory or not.

      • Stormy says:

        ITA Harry is astute musically, JLo is incredibly sharp at marketing her brand. Both are useful tools for a hopeful entertainer.

    • scooby says:

      Nah, it’s funny as all get out because people know she’s not exactly there due to her musical training at Julliard, and instead of blowing her off because she’s achieved success while not being technically proficient, I think he knows (as do we) she didn’t have a need to know it and still became a star. She has plenty to offer in other areas. That doesn’t mean she can’t learn something new. She’s serving as the audience in a way, asking what something means instead of pretending to know. People at home learn things they wouldn’t have heard about. He doesn’t criticize her for not understanding pentatonics. Respectful but firm teaching isn’t the worst thing to hear on a singing competition show. If nothing else, people learned where Pentatonix got their name. ;)

  6. ssm says:

    On The Good Wife, it was established that Kalinda had asked Cary to meet her for a drink.

  7. ZmaX says:

    #3 People keep asking that, but the real question is what’s the point in Victoria lying to Emily about something that can be proven so easily?

    Emily can call the hospital and find out in a matter of mintues or she can even go to a doctor and get it checked out.

    Victoria’s not stupid. When she screws with people, she doesn’t half ass it, and Emily knows that. The only logical option is that it is true and Victoria just wanted to be the one to rub it in Emily’s face.

  8. Kim R says:

    19. I was so annoyed when Jennifer interrupted Harry while he was trying to give some constructive advice and musical knowledge to the contestant. I was very interested in what he was trying to convey (i.e. you don’t get paid by the note so stop trying to hit every one on the scale). I hope he gets to finish his thoughts in Hollywood because that was exactly the critique that girl needed.

  9. Aleana says:

    I love The Fosters yes I think it was too soon for Brandon to say he loves Callie to me Brandon being selfish I want Callie to a part of his family

    • l says:

      Brandon’s been a selfish brat the whole run of the show so far.. not caring that his desire for her would ruin her chances of staying with the family… he needs to grow up.

  10. Rich Abey says:

    #6. On Kate’s ‘flexibility’ issue, Rick definitely told Espo “Kate can lift her leg…” before Kate stopped him blabbering out any more. Certainly this was something private & intimate…I would hazard a guess that it involved ‘bedroom’ activities?

  11. Elyse says:

    8 | Did it seem like The Fosters‘ Brandon dropped that “I love Callie!” a little too soon?

    Brandon’s puppy love routine is driving me nuts… that’s how a lot of kids his age act though so I suppose it fits. What doesn’t fit is Wyatt’s parents letting him drive from California to Indiana ALONE.

    • April says:

      Parent…singular. It was just his mom and I get the feeling there has never been a whole lot of parental guidance in his family.

      • Elyse says:

        Parent… parents either way no parent or grandparent on their right mind would let their kid move across the country by themselves.

  12. Jax says:

    #* – Yes! Way too soon. And I agree with Jude saying he was just like Liam. OK, he didn’t FORCE her to do anything but he still put her in a difficult position and continued to push her even knowing that it could get her kicked out of the house.

  13. Rich Abey says:

    #16. Somebody should have noticed, but I honestly did not care cause the episode was pretty awesome…definitely much more intense & suspenseful than pretty much any airplane hijacking film in decades!

    • lll says:

      While there are times when the passengers should have noticed something was going on, the rest of it was right in line with the airplane movie that was playing that it was assumed that it was surround sound. The awesomeness of Reese kicking @$$ on the plane made up for the confusion.

  14. Kaye Nicholson says:

    Re: Aisha Tyler at the Critics Choice Awards – definitely cringe-worthy for me. I ended up muting every time I saw her about to speak.

  15. Kim R says:

    24. I’d like to know how many people teared up at Sue’s desperate pleading with Axl to be her brother again, as she ripped apart her beloved stuffed animal, on The Middle this week. So touching. :)

  16. Whatever says:

    13. Elijah doing anything is sexy but the unzipping was better.

    • Naazneen says:

      we should just start calling elijah sexy – as a name and leave it at that. the unzipping was ridiculously chemistry fuelled. hayley’s reaction when his fingers were dancing across her spine… the reaction i suspect of everyone who was watching. swoon

  17. JJ says:

    So right about Nashville. How could they not even have her sing a verse on a show all about music? Also, I fall asleep when that lawyer comes on screen. Deacon yelling at her was the best scene with her ever.

  18. Kathy says:

    2-Yes, I believe that. It took forever for Jacqueline Bissett to get on stage. She even shook Jon Voight’ s hand. We will not go into her acceptance speech. So yes, it was ridiculous.

  19. Virginia says:

    7. Way more interesting – to me, at least – is the fact that next week’s guest star Victor Garber looks almost nothing like Tom Mision, who’s father he’s supposed to be playing, but bears a passing resemblance to… George Washington!

  20. Tom Charles says:

    The correct answer is: watching even a second of Party Down South. Jersey Shore with rednecks? Merciful FSM NO! But something tells me people I know are going to love it. I really don’t want to live on this planet anymore.

  21. c-mo says:

    #11. Her tirade was so hilarious and because they bleeped and blurred her, she could have been asking the kids what they wanted for a snack for all we know…

  22. A says:

    Revolution Question: is Charlie going to be a love interest for Monroe or his son Connor or does Jason still have a shot?

    • jenferner8 says:

      I’m hoping she and her mom get killed off but I know that’s not going to happen, so thank God for the fastforward button. Charlie and Monroe together romantically is too icky, her and Connor would be even ickier and not just because of Monroe.

    • Sarahliz1624 says:

      I don’t think she needs to be a love interest for anyone. After all, is that all women on screen are good for is as love interests? I think not.

    • Tahonia says:

      Charlie and Monroe definitely have some incredible chemistry. But it would be creepy. Shame to waste it. Good point about not needing a romantic storyline, but then how to expand the fan base? We have all the fight enthusiasts, and the double-dealing enthusiasts, give Charlie someone to walk across the world with before the show is gone.

  23. jenferner8 says:

    #2 Whose idea was it to put Jacquline Bisset in the nosebleed section!? I mean, seriously, half the actual winners were shoved so far in the back I’m surprised the show didn’t last another hour.

    #7 Icha-babe and jeans, YES! Ichabod and skinny jeans are a big hell “NO”. Nobody looks good in those things, they really should be banned. It looked like the wardrobe dept gave him a size or two to small. I thought maybe Abby gave him some khakis to try on too. I may be in the minority but I love that he’s still wears the long coat.

  24. Lori says:

    Dean and Sam kill demons, hang out with angels and come back from the dead with amazing regularity and you’re worried about how they stayed dry? On the Winchester Weirdness Scale that’s about a one and half!

  25. cjeffery7 says:

    2 – derp.
    11 – i was watching Trophy Wife while at the gym and almost lost my sh*t. suppressed laughter provides its own little extra workout maybe?

  26. Lliannan says:

    #14: it actually made me avoid the show. Sick of seeing her face, sick of hearing about her, don’t give a rap about any show she produces

  27. Sarahliz1624 says:

    13. Definitely the unzipping.

  28. Ram510 says:

    ABC definitely needs to air season 1 of Mistresses! More people need to get hooked on the very addictive show.
    11) That scene in Trophy Wife was hilarious!

  29. lame says:

    Castle knows there’s only so much he can divulge of his dad before it becomes dangerous for those in the know. As for Kate’s flexibility, think back to season one when the guys were perusing a copy of the Kama Sutra and they remarked that one of the positions was impossible for anyone engage in, and Kate said ” oh its possible”.

    • Andifoster says:

      Do Chicago PD and fire run alongside each other? If they do- then why did Sophia Bushs phone say October? If they don’t then surely the kidnapping would have been brought up in fire?

  30. Metoo says:

    #11 Her tirade was hilarious, and I loved that it started before the commercial break and continued after it. This show gets better every week, I wish people would watch it.

  31. A fan says:

    7. Am I the only one who thought maybe he just wrote down a date. . .you know, before he died?

    16. How is it the airplane episode of just about any show always seems to have a comedy layer to it? Not that I’m complaining. It was a good episode.

    19. I’m liking Harry, he’s bringing a little extra education to the room, he’s got a good sense of humor, and he’s NOT automatically won over by any contestant who throws in a run (like every other judge ever). Him pointing out the noises the other two made during a country contestants vocal licks in the first episode (and then the show editor being kind enough to rewind the tape for us) was kind of awesome.

  32. Ella says:

    #17 – SERIOUSLY. I used to love Arrow and now it’s like a soap opera. Olicity is ruining it for me, frankly. Diggle is not being utilized the same way, no one is, because the writers are giving in to the ridiculous fangirling. I miss seeing more Laurel and Diggle and Moira.

  33. Britta Unfiltered says:

    5. Funny you mention it, because I found it very distracting during his cameo in Wolf of Wall Street, which I saw last week (and didn’t care for). He had obviously either just come off Dallas Buyers Club or was in the middle of doing Dallas Buyers Club when he shot that scene.
    14. Haha. For me, it’s a total turn-off.
