Could you please get some scoop on what’s coming up for “Captain Swan” in Once Upon a Time Season 3B? –Kim
As already hinted, Hook will have a tough time getting back in Emma’s good graces, especially given how their first NYC “reunion” went. “She will be very wary” of this stranger, cocreator Eddy Kitsis previews. “I mean, if someone knocked on your door wearing leather and guyliner and tried to kiss you…? He’s lucky he didn’t get a baseball bat to the head!” Adds Adam Horowitz: “Emma’s a tough cookie when she has her memories. So without them, it’s not going to an easy road for him.”

This Once Upon a Time hiatus feels like forever! Got any scoop to help make the remaining month-plus wait more bearable? –Stefanie
If you’re in your mid-30s to early 40s and look like a young Richard Schiff, call your agent now. A flashback in Episode 18 — the same one that brings back Rose McGowan’s Young Cora, hmm — will introduce us to Prince Leopold aka the man who will one day be Snow White’s father. The younger Leo is described as grounded, humble and not afraid to open his heart, coveting more from marriage than just a political arrangement. UPDATE: Also in this ep, Eva Bourne will reprise her role as Young Eva.

What can you hint about the upcoming episodes of Scandal? –Lindsey
I got Darby Stanchfield to elaborate for me – a bit – on the scenes she recently filmed with a cast member she’d never worked with before. “It has to do with the other world, the White House world,” she said of the first-time pairing. “It’s a role that Abby’s not used to being in, but sometimes Olivia Pope is busy and short-staffed. so Abby’s got to step in. It made for some really nice scenes.”

After this week’s almost-revelation on Teen Wolf, is there any romance (with boys or girls — how radical!) on the horizon for Stiles? –Emony
The answer is an emphatic yes. While last week’s scene pointed to a moment of questioning for Stiles, there will be one person in particular in Episode 20, titled “Echo House,” to whom Stiles finds a mutual attraction… and more.

Anything… I’ll take anything you’ve got on Graceland…. Please…. –Jess
For Season 2, the USA Network drama is casting the recurring roles of Kelly, an alcoholic who meets Briggs at AA (but has no idea of his link to her own tragic past), and Vera Walker, Mike’s new FBI supervisor… and perhaps more. You’ll also meet Zagurski, the Fed now laying claim to Mike’s Graceland room – unless, that is, Mike can convince his new boss to let him return to the house and hunt down a very big fish.

I would love some scoop on my favorite show, Beauty and the Beast – please and thank you! –Larissa
Believe me when I say that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to archaelogist Sam (guest star Tom Everett Scott), whom we meet this Monday.

Now that Scott Caan is going to film the Entourage movie, will he disappear from Hawaii Five-0? I really hope not! Also, is there anything you can tell us on Danny’s new love interest, Amber? Something about her doesn’t feel right to me–Sarah
I brought your concern to exec producer Peter M. Lenkov, and he assured that Caan’s Entourage encore will “absolutely not” impact his Five-0 presence. As for Amber, well, she is… harmless. As Lenkov noted, “Something good has to happen for these guys at some point!” (Amber’s next appearances include Episode 19, which I scooped here.)

How will the illegal votes affect The Good Wife‘s Peter/Alicia? Is she going to overlook it or take action to defend him? –Ana
Series cocreator Michelle King would part with no specifics, but she did promise that the potential voting scandal “continues to play over the rest of the season. I don’t know if it will be a part of the season finale, but it’s definitely not over.”

What is going on with NCIS‘ Jimmy Palmer? It seems that the show has toned down his involvement this season. –Sherry
Show boss Gary Glasberg reminds, “We’ve had this [storyline] runner that we started, about his personal life and his wanting to adopt. That’ll continue through the season,” ultimately leading to “an emotional bit of closure.”

I’m curious, will we see Tony’s apartment again soon on NCIS? –Cheryl
As a matter of fact, yes – in Episode 17, Glasberg says.

The latest episode of the Tomorrow People was my favourite yet, mostly because it featured Astrid and John. Anything else coming up for them? –Mahika
I have no fresh scoop on John and Astrid. But Luke Mitchell did tell us that an upcoming episode will reveal how John met Cara.

I am really into Reign on The CW. Any scoop? –Niki
The next handful of episodes will gradually remove the proverbial bag from the mysterious Clarissa’s face. “We’ll learn how it is that she’s rooted to this castle, who it is that she’s kind of related to, and we’ll learn a back story that even she doesn’t know — and that backstory will anger her,” says EP Laurie McCarthy. As for her protection of Mary, McCarthy says, “It’s a little bit like having the Mafia as your best friend. Her moral compass is not quite set at the right angle and when she perceives a slight, she reacts pretty violently.”

I do have a major question about Revenge: Will we have a new flash-forward in Episode 14? –Michael
Though showrunner Sunil Nayar had (long ago) told us he was considering possibly dropping a new “WTF Just Happened?” flash-forward teaser at midseason, it would appear he elected not to. Instead, I am told, the midseason premiere (airing March 9 at 10/9c) picks up right where the finale left off.

Do you have anything on my favorite and underappreciated ABC comedies, Suburgatory and Trophy Wife? –Claire
Yes, and yes. Chris Parnell previewed for me a pair of Suburgatory episodes in which George, Noah and Fred A) go on a group date (any guesses on the lone guy to get some “action”?) and B) go camping (the wrinkle: Fred loses his son in the great outdoors). Meanwhile, the Trophy Wife herself, Malin Akerman, teased for me one of her most favorite episodes, in which Kate “has to kind of dress it down and be a Midwestern wife — or at least that what she thinks she needs to be, for an interview with immigration. It entails a lot of crazy comedy.”

  • It’ll be pretty funny for Hook to get back into her good graces when he tells Emma how many times he left her to die and screwed her over for enemies that wanted her dead.

    Comment by xav – January 31, 2014 09:26 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Or the times she did the same. Except that’s been long over and done now. Plus she has no issues with it (as opposed to the dude who sent her to prison and keeps putting her down), so why should you?

      Not to mention, we know Hook succeeds!

      • He does succeed?

        Comment by RJ – January 31, 2014 09:42 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I doesn’t succeed, and there was never any mention of that. Just the wishes of the pinned up viewers who are trying to live vicariously through Emma. See Hook looks better than Baefire, so people are willing to forget that NUMBER of times Hook has tried to kill her, her family, her son and all that jazz. They feels that “True Love” outways murder or attempted murder! Not saying Baefire is a winner, but in this race….

          • Hook looks better than Baelfire? That’s a masterpiece of understatement. Rumpel [in his cell in the dungeon ] looked better than Baelfire! Grumpy looks better, Maleficent in dragon form looked better.

            Comment by Paris – January 31, 2014 01:50 PM PDT  
          • @Paris: Wow, rude much? Guaranteed there are scores of people who think that MRJ is far better-looking than Colin O’Donoghue (not that Colin is unattractive by any means, but please try to keep the perspective that beauty is in the eye of the beholder).

            Comment by Joey – January 31, 2014 03:53 PM PDT  
          • Hook had left Emma in a cage/prison once when he was with Cora; but that’s because she left him shackled at the top of a beanstalk with a rumored man- eating giant. He felt betrayed and hurt. He wants revenge against Rumple and doesn’t care if he dies in the process. When it came to Tamara and Greg, he didn’t fully realize what they were planning at first. When he did, he went and warned the Charmings.
            Hook is motivated by love and revenge. He’s found out that revenge isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and decided to become part of something bigger than himself; which is why he turned the ship around and brought back the magic bean for Emma to get to Neverland. He was the only one there not related to Henry and has risked his life more than once for them, in a place he never wanted to return. He’s on a road to redemption and on the way, fell in love. If possible, go back and re-watch the episodes, it may help clear up some things for you.

            Comment by HookandEmmafan – February 2, 2014 10:59 AM PDT  
          • @HookandEmmafan… He went back for Baelfire. And speaking of Baelfire/Neal, Emma told him repeatedly that she loves him. She has never said that to Hook. They had one kiss, and that was to thank him for saving her father’s life.

            Comment by 1543 – March 21, 2014 03:24 PM PDT  
          • Ummm, sure. Remember, just because you say something is true doesn’t make it true. And since it’s doesn’t look like Bagel is much longer for this world, doesn’t really matter.

            Comment by zumpie – March 21, 2014 03:59 PM PDT  
      • Possibly that’s true. I mean, he is a male Regina knock-off but with less depth.

        Comment by xav – January 31, 2014 10:25 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Why would he be a Regina knock-off?? Regina is all magic and Hook is all force. They don’t think in the same way, and they don’t act the same way. There is nothing that suggests that Hook was even REMOTELY based off of Regina….

          Comment by Lia – February 21, 2014 02:30 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Keeps putting her down? When?

        Hook won’t succeed in making her remember or believe. Think that’s why Regina is upset in the promo and throws something, because Emma doesn’t believe.

        Comment by Mary – January 31, 2014 10:39 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • i am sure Emma knows what is what, and hasnt held it against him when he worked opposite the wrong side (she understood that), but ever since he chose to be with her and her side, he has done nothing wrong at all since then, and he’s fallen in love with her, and put her first etc

      Thanks for the Captain Swan scoop :) Rooting for them, i like what we have seen so far

      Comment by Sid – January 31, 2014 09:59 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • So attempted murder shouldn’t be held against him because he said he’s sorry? Doesn’t that seem just a tad far-fetched? And when has he really put her first? He hasn’t, he put his needs first and when Tinkerbell called him out on it, he still put his needs first. If he put Emma first, he would have wanted her and Henry to be a family with Bae, and he didn’t do that…just saying, stop trying to justify his actions with a “but he loves her” speech. Of course this is TV, but common sense should still apply!

        Comment by Amanda – January 31, 2014 10:04 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Whoa, you might be taking this a tad too seriously. First, you can be a family without having your bio parents be married. Second, it’s just a tv show! A tv show about fairytales at that! So of course it’s going to be far-fetched. I like Neal and Hook both. I don’t care who Emma ends up with as long as the show is written well and the characters’ decisions make sense within the world of the show. Emma felt abandoned by Neal, so I can see why she shuts him out and is hesitant to give him a second chance. Hook has turned over a new leaf and is now fighting for good, so I can see why Emma would have been open to his attentions. Also, both of these characters are relatively new to the show still (only 1.5 seasons so far), so there is still plenty of time for Emma to make her choice.

        • Wait leaving her in the cell was attempted murder? I have no doubt he knew she’d figure a way out. To say nothing of Team Princess was previously ready to leave him to the mercies of the ogres. They don’t hold any of this against one another, so neither should you. Plus, as noted, it’s all pretend.

          And just because Jailfire donated sperm doesn’t mean he and Emma need to get married, EVER. Putting Emma first in this would be want she wants because it’s HER choice to make (because she’s a grown woman). Guess what? She didn’t meet Bagel for lunch, she encouraged Hook’s love at the town line and according to other spoilers (from Matt, I believe), her reunion with Neal isn’t gonna be a happy one. He had his chance, she shot it down.

          Now Hook’s the guy who bothered to find her, isn’t giving up, will reunite her with her entire family and will get the girl. Sorry you’re disappointed and must now dredge up the past.

          • Emma was about to meet Neal for lunch when she was stopped by Blue’s screams. Yes, it was at Charming’s urging but doesn’t change the facts so please don’t spread misinformation.

          • ” I have no doubt he knew she’d figure a way out.” – Man, give me some of what you’ve been smoking. I’d like to live in a self-induced dream state, too.

            Comment by Joey – January 31, 2014 01:21 PM PDT  
          • “I have no doubt he knew she’d figure a way out.” Really? Because the cell was built to hold Rumplestiltskin. If HE couldn’t get out, why would he think Emma could?

            Comment by Crysania – February 4, 2014 12:22 PM PDT  
          • But she did get out. And SparkleDark probably chose to be there, because he’s been manipulating this all along. In any event, it’s immaterial because EMMA doesn’t hold it against Hook, so it’s a non-issue.

            Just as Jailfire will be (a non-issue) after episode 3×15 or 3×16. When he buys the Gale Farm and becomes worm food.

            Comment by zumpie – February 4, 2014 12:37 PM PDT  
          • Rumplestiltskin DID want to be there. And the fact that the squid ink could have gotten him out points right to that. Emma knew. She even confronted him about it when they got back. But that doesn’t mean HOOK knew that she could get out. Whether or not she holds it against him (which I suspect is more a symptom of writing that often sweeps crap under the rug, like Belle having basically no reaction to being imprisoned for years by Regina) doesn’t matter. Hook left her there, presumably to die, with the others. That’s a pretty crappy thing to do. I’m not sure why you can’t see that. I mean, I get that you love Hook. I love Rumple. But Rumple has done some pretty awful things in his life and so has Hook.

            Comment by crysania4 – February 4, 2014 12:41 PM PDT  
          • Good grief. How I see it is immaterial to begin with, because I”M not a character on the show. They were on opposite sides at the time. And he could either help her and die or ditch her and live. Additionally, she had already very nearly left him to been torn limb from limb by the ogres. See??? Same.

            It was last season (and pretend), Emma’s over it. You should be too. And Bagel’s still gonna die

            Comment by zumpie – February 4, 2014 12:47 PM PDT  
          • Why does everything turn into something about Neal for you? Read this carefully ok? This conversation has nothing to do with Neal. You can NOT like something Hook did on the show and discuss that with someone without its being about Neal.

            Also, if you don’t like a comment, you don’t really have to reply to it. If I had realized who you were I wouldn’t have bothered replying in the first place, because you have an annoyingly one-track mind in this regard. Have a nice day.

          • Umm, the same applies to you. Don’t like a comment? No one’s forcing you either. You chose (3 times now) to continue this. I notice once you realize you won’t be getting your way, you get verrry upset. BTW, I will have a good day! Have you seen the BTS pics, lately????

            Comment by zumpie – February 4, 2014 12:58 PM PDT  
        • Hook told Neal at Granny’s after they returned from Neverland that he was going to back off and give Neal a chance with Emma since they were a family. He was going to wait it out, because he’s in it for the long haul. Emma didn’t want anything to do with Neal, which is why she went down to the docks instead of meeting Neal for lunch. She was only coming back because Charming asked.

          Comment by HookandEmmafan – February 2, 2014 11:16 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I was shocked when I saw fans thinking it was romantic when Hook called Emmar dried up and useless and left her to die in Rumple’s prison. Is that what women are into these days? I need some advice so I can up my game.

      Comment by Brian – January 31, 2014 12:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Considering that the quote is lifted practically word for word from Jane Austen’s “Persuasion” by jilted Capt Wentworth to his former finacee, Anne Elliot (and spoiler, they wind up married), just like Emma on the show, I have no issue with it.

        You should up your game by looking at where they derive stuff from

        Comment by zumpie – January 31, 2014 12:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I don’t care where the quote is from. It’s demeaning and disgusting and I would never say that to a woman.

          Comment by Brian – January 31, 2014 01:22 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • AWESOME!! DON’T ever say that to a woman. It doesn’t get you many points in the ‘gentleman’ category! BUT Hook wasn’t trying to get any points. He was pissed off at her for leaving, because he really had betrayed Cora and chosen her, and he wanted his revenge. Why does everyone jump on Hook for leaving Emma, but no one seems to notice that Emma left him first! And it was four against two. It’s a very sad day when you play Emma and three other badass princesses as the damsels in distress. And the Snow/Charming relationship started with her stealing from him and giving him a scar, the went to him trapping her and threatening to turn her over to the Queen, then she kneed him and left him…it goes on. But that isn’t an issue. Why? Because there was no imbalance of power. It was two adults who decided to fight. The same with Emma/Hook. Hook didn’t have some great advantage of power, nor did he make Emma FEEL dried up and useless. And besides, Emma got her revenge at the lake ;).

        • That’s some very odd reasoning to be honest. What does it matter where a reference may or may not come from? There’s a whole damn lot in Jane Austen’s novels that I would hope no one would apply to their modern day romantic relationships anymore.

          • Hook used the bean as a methaphor to dried and useless that was once full of hope and poosiblities and later on not only does Emma succeed but also the bean does as well…

            Jeez, if ppl are going to welcome character development then why watch this show

            And what is this nonsense about murder lol…. Hook is changing – understand it. So is Regina and so is Rumpel – the whole point of season 3a so far…

            And Emma doesnt hold it against him as someone said, neither does the Charmings and so on… he hasnt cursed anyone, or done evil acts like Pan or Regina and Rumpel did before

            are you comparing rumple, regina redemption with hook? you gotta be kidding me. hook’s charactor turned 180′ & It can’t really call character development.
            completely agree with Joey. Hook isn’t changing. He changed

      Comment by SS – January 31, 2014 10:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Fascinating. Person A says Caan wasn’t in 2 or 3 episodes this season. Person B calls that an exaggeration because Caan was in more than half of 13 eps. “More than half” of 13 means he missed six or fewer episodes. “2 or 3″ is fewer than six.

        Before someone answers in an obvious huff, perhaps a review of basic arithmetic and the meaning of “exaggeration” would be in order.

  • Since Rena Sofer is 45 and meant to be considerably younger than her husband, I don’t find it terribly difficult to see why she wouldn’t be returning in this instance. I would more guess whomever played her as Princess Ava and was mean to “young” Cora. Also, it’s no surprise he wants a wife he actually loves, wasn’t he always in love with Queen Ava?

    Also, the NYC part was hardly a spoiler.

    Comment by zumpie – January 31, 2014 09:34 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Schiff is already 13 years older than Rena Sofer. I guess it fits with Leopold’s character, much older man going for teenage girl.
      It’s tough to say he was in love with her though. Since he didn’t show up to her funeral and was out wife searching for hot teenagers within weeks.

      Comment by xav – January 31, 2014 10:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Actually, if you read older books, that would’ve been viewed as perfectly acceptable (even youngish) back in the day. In Jane Austen books, most of the “out” young ladies are considered old maids at 18 and they’re generally courted by men in their late 20′s/early 30′s (and you could be “out”, husband hunting by 14 or 15).

        I think he grew to love her, given his loooooong speech about his daughter’s beauty only rivaled by her mother’s, his beloved late wife. All while his new wife was sitting there at the banquet. My take was that he wanted a new mom for Snow and Regina saved Snow’s life and seemed to bond with her, etc. The entire thing was orchestrated by Cora, so I wouldn’t say he was “out wife searching”

        Comment by zumpie – January 31, 2014 11:32 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I’d suggest a rewatch. Particularly Stable Boy, The Queen is Dead and The Miller’s Daughter for some clarification since Leopold being ‘lonely’, looking for companionship and ‘scouring the land’ for a wife is canon. As is Regina only being six years old than the girl she was supposed to be a ‘mother’ to.

    On a side note, this week’s episode was a bummer. Way to kick Tessa in the gut Ryan.

      • I don’t know why they didn’t use Noah as the one that gets George out of the house, as opposed to the grandfather whom we’ve never met and never heard anything about. What were supposed to be touching moments between father and son were a little hollow. I think it would have been funnier having Noah try to get him back out into the real world. And while I’m rambling about using actors more effectively, I’d have preferred more Tessa and Ryan interaction as opposed to Tessa melting down for a minute then ending with her downing ice cream. If you’re going to get Parker Young back for an episode, use him more than just to say ‘Hi’ to everyone.

  • Same shows over and over there are new shows in production shows that have just returned to film new seasons yet nothing except the same over and over. The only two missing from the norm this week are greys and castle, come on TVline how about a bit of variety, you claim if you dont write in we wont know well after numerous emails regarding a variety of shows from me and my friends still the same…..

  • Could the wicked witch be the love child of Cora and Leo, making her a sister to Regina AND Snow o.0 ? I’m not sure how I feel about that but it would beef up the Cora/Eva feud and give Regina and Snow some interesting material. I definitely prefer it to the idea of Rumple being her father.

    • That’s a good possibility if you read the tea leaves. I love the idea even better than Rumple as the dad.

  • What do you expect from Captain Hook? He’s a villian in the stories! The beautiful thing about Once’s take is that love can be such a powerful thing that can change a man, who loves Emma because of who she is, a strong, beautiful but also damaged woman. I’m not forgetting the bad things he has done but why can’t some people see the good things too? I want Emma to have someone who gives her hope (dark hollow anybody?) and who spend a whole year thinking about her after she only said “Good”… Anyway, thank you Matt for the scoop! Can’t wait to see the WWoW too, Regina is going to kick her green ass!

  • I am 100% here for Stiles’ mutual attraction to be with another male character. I think it’s gone past the lol JK “lets try making out” jokes to something that has to be addressed seriously and thoughtfully. And while I think Stiles’ potential bisexuality needs to be addressed, Shelly Hennig is a gorgeous and talented girl so I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing a little Malia/Stiles.

  • Thanks for the scoops Matt! Watching last week’s episode of The Tomorrow People, I was wondering how Cara and John met. So I’m excited to see this episode. It could also be a way to finally end the pair. The show usually parallels flashbacks with what’s currently going on. I think both characters are falling in love with others, so it’s time the let their relationship go..for now.

    • This is what i am seeing, the way they are written and been built up as (both Snowing/Rumbelle esp Snowing met, went on a journey to get something, felt a connection instantly)

      Pretty much as far as i can see Hook has been given the role of the things you do in true love = the elements (i have seen Charming do/Snowing, Rumbelle do).. choose the one you love, put them first, fight for them, find them, never give up, and believing in them and having faith!

      He’s done that for Emma as i have seen thoughout this season, once he made the chose to come back to her and be part of something and falling for her esp when he nearly lost her when she was lifeless on his deck – the emotions and expressions we saw in that scene, we had camera to him and her parents mostly.

Can’t wait to see what unfolds with Hook and Emma….but I’m super intrigued with a younger Leo being in the same episode as young Cora…but I think a poster already mentioned Rena didn’t play young Eva, so I’ll be anxiously waiting for the 18th episode I’m sure they have an exciting plot for us ….hurry up March 9th

  • It’s kind of sad though, I mean we now know Hook and Emma are gonna end up together because Neal will be dying in episode 15 or 16. It’s sad really that someone is dying. In a show about fairy tales, but I guess that will just make Hook and Emma even more of kindred spirits.

    • Its not even that he is or someone dying, The way Emma and Hook are written with each other – react to one another, is what we have seen through the season, they have the moments, they have the romantic lingering just look at the kiss and more so the goodbye scene in the finale and her saying good, as in wanting him to think of her and love her… HOPE. Far as i can see Emma/Hook felt something when they first met = beanstalk, but Hook’s focus was revenge… and we saw that when he thought he got it, it wasnt satisfying at all. More so now he wasnt capable of moving on from first love UNTIL HE MET EMMA <3

      • Because of nine billion spoilers, falling anvils and evidence that says Jailfire will buy the Gale Farm. While A&E will proceed to set nine billion roadblocks in CS’s path (because that’s what they do with TL couples), another love interest won’t be it. Mark my words, TLK at the end of the season. And I can’t wait!

  • Stiles’ bisexuality has to be addressed at this point, the writers continuously teasing it just comes off like queerbaiting. Sorry but Jeff Davis isn’t getting any kudos from me unless Stiles actually has a relationship with a male character. The writers teased Stiles losing a certain ‘status’ so I wouldn’t mind Stiles losing his V-card to a new guy in Beacon Hills.

Well this is what i saw Hook finds her, and then tries a true love kiss, and we all know a true love kiss dont work on memory loss… will be interested to see how and when Hook started his mission to get to Emma. And he believes she is his true love judging by thinking the kiss could work as he said its a long shot

    Comment by Jared – January 31, 2014 07:09 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Despite the fact that they canonically only tolerate each other through Scott. Stiles and Derek may have some chemistry, but it is nothing more than reluctant allies. I’m all for bi Stiles, but Derek has never been hinted to like anything but women. Also ignoring the fact that Derek is 5+ years his senior.

Knowing that Jane Espenson did some of the writing for this and The Miller’s Daughter was one of the stronger episodes of season 2 makes me look forward to it.
