If there’s one thing we look forward to more than May Sweeps, with its mayhem, murders and impromptu marriages, it’s the countdown to May Sweeps, when we get to hint at, speculate about and/or flat-out reveal who’ll be getting hooked up, bumped off or something in between’d. So, without further ado, we present TVLine’s fourth annual May Sweeps Scorecard!
Same as always, it’s overstuffed with not only Sweeps teases but season finale teases as well. And since, c’mon, we can’t tell you everything we know, a bunch of the juiciest pieces of intel are obscured by [SPOILER] tags. And before you sulk about that, remember — just because we don’t tell you the answer right now doesn’t mean you can’t guess what it is.
A few things to remember before you scroll down and read on:
• Firstly, the bulk of the entries below pertain to series regulars or recurring characters from shows that air on a broadcast network (i.e. ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, The CW).
• Secondly, as the twists begin to leak, the Scorecard will be updated (and re-updated… ) until, finally, all the blanks are filled in and/or replaced by even more items! (Mind you, so as not to give away any classified intel, the blanks will often remain blank until after the plots to which they refer untwist on screen.) Regardless, so we strongly suggest you bookmark this puppy and check back for updates.
• Lastly, if it’s on the Scorecard, it happens during May Sweeps, which this year begins April 24 and ends May 21.
OK, now you can go ahead and start reading The fourth annual TVLine May Sweeps Scorecard!
