Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on Bones, Once, Arrow, Grey's, Parks, Nashville, Blacklist, Sleepy Hollow and More

Ask Ausiello

Got a scoop request? An anonymous tip you’re dying to share? Send any/all of the above to askausiello@tvline.com

Question: Now that Bones has decided to incorporate Emily Deschanel’s pregnancy into the show, will we get to see Brennan in the early stages of her pregnancy this time? Or will there be another time jump? —Tiera
Ausiello: Sounds like you’ll get a ringside seat to that elusive first trimester, since exec producer Stephen Nathan tells me that Brennan and Booth will, a least initially, attempt to keep the pregnancy a secret from their co-workers.

Question: Do you have any scoop on Bones? —Cassidy
Ausiello: An early 2015 episode will find Cam’s man Arastoo “trapped in Iran as a political prisoner,” Nathan reveals. “The only way he can leave is to solve a particularly sensitive murder. And of course he can’t do it without help.”

Question: I know it’s early yet, but any Once Upon a Time scoop to get us through this hiatus? —Jenny
Ausiello: As Season 4 unfolds starting March 1, new flashbacks will highlight the Charmings, Ursula’s origin story, more of Captain Hook’s past and the tale of how Regina first met Maleficent.

CATERINA SCORSONEQuestion: Scoop Me! —Bob
Ausiello: I’m getting a distinct Grey’s Anatomy vibe from you, Robert. Look for Owen and Callie to encourage each other to get back in the dating scene in early 2015. I hear the former will test the waters with a certain female doc with the initials “AS.” Hint No. 2: She has substance abuse issues. Hint No. 3: She’s related to Derek. Hint No. 4: She’s pictured to the right. Hit the comments with your best guesses!

Question: I just read that Orange Is the New Black was cancelled! Say it ain’t so! —Jill
Ausiello: Back your nose away from the glue stick, Jill. OITNB will probably be around for at least another four seasons beyond its upcoming third. Speaking of which, after Suzanne was left sobbing in the wake of Vee’s disappearance, Uzo Aduba says we will find Suzanne in a “broken place” when Orange returns. “[Series creator] Jenji [Kohan] is playing with the idea of faith and belief. What is faith? What is it we choose to believe in?” Aduba shares. “And [those questions] are true for Suzanne, as well.”

Question: I’m dying to know whether the Jess/Nick ‘ship has sailed on New Girl, or if there is still a chance of them getting back together. I love the character of Ryan, but I love Jess and Nick! —Ganga 
Ausiello: The ‘ship actually hit an iceberg and sank, this according to Jake Johnson. “Nick is really happy for Jess and Ryan, they’ve got a nice thing going,” shares the actor. “Nick and Jess are friends, and I think [the romantic relationship] is done. You can’t keep flipping back and forth, because the show needs an identity. They went back to just friends, and they’re happy with that. And I’m happy to do it.”

Question: Michael, you are way too funny. —Jackie
Ausiello: It’s a gift.

Question: I was wondering how, after Arrow‘s stunning midseason twist of “killing” Oliver Queen, Felicity would react. Felicity was clearly hurt when Oliver kept pushing her away, and now that he finally tells her he loves her — she was his last dying thought! — and now she’s lost him again! –Julie
Ausiello:
I will just remind you that when Matt Mitovich last Q&A’d Emily Bett Rickards, she had just wrapped filming “a sad moment” for Episode 10 — aka the midseason opener, airing Jan. 21 — and it had left her “drained.” (Elsewhere on Team Arrow, Marc Guggenheim told us that in the same episode, David Ramsey “shot what I would describe as his most emotional scene…. David breaks your heart with his performance.” So, yeah. Kleenex.)

Question: Any scoop on Arrow? —Anita
Ausiello: We haven’t seen the last of Thea’s DJ-boytoy, played by Austin Butler. “Like a lot of our characters, there’s maybe a little bit more to him than meets the eye,” exec producer Greg Berlanti teases. And will her papa Malcolm Merlyn have a take on the new guy in his daughter’s life? Says Berlanti with a laugh: “It would be surprising if he didn’t.”

NUP_157954_1118.JPGQuestion: Got any scoop on the final season of Parks and Rec? —Serena
Ausiello: The one-episode return of Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe will be “warm, happy and upbeat,” reports exec producer Mike Schur, who teases that viewers will get “some cool glimpses into what [Ann and Chris] have been up to in the years that they’ve been gone. It’s going to be a really nice thing for people to see them.” Bringing Jones back for the farewell season was among Schur’s top priorities. “The entire series is predicated on Ann Perkins coming to a small public forum and complaining about something in her neighborhood,” the EP reminds us. “That was literally the design of the show, and it just wouldn’t have felt right if we didn’t have Ann back in one episode, at least. I’m really happy that it all worked out.”

Question: In a recent episode of Forever, Jane Seymour played Abe’s twice-divorced wife — but Henry had never met her. How does the show explain that? —Angie
Ausiello: Easy, says star Ioan Gruffudd: It doesn’t. (At least, not yet.) “That’s a very good question!” he says, laughing. “It will be interesting to find out what that period of time was and why they were apart. Was it to protect Abe? Was it to protect the secret or something like that? It will be interesting.”

Question: Can you please give us some scoop on the new and final season of Justified (besides what has been reported in all the little short snippets lately)? —Harris Family
Ausiello: The final season premiere picks up with Raylan in, of all places, Mexico, where his U.S. Marshal’s badge curries him exactly zero favor. (But when has that ever stopped him from getting what he needs?) The episode also features a moment so abrupt and shocking, you will jump out of your seat.

Question: I need info on Scorpion. Namely, is Camille Guaty/“Megan” going to be pretty much a regular for the immediate future? —Justin
Ausiello: A show rep confirms that the Prison Break alumna is now in fact recurring on the freshman CBS drama. As such, you should see Walter and Sylvester’s confidante again sometime soon.

Ask AusielloQuestion: When is Will going to come out on Nashville? It’s been long enough! —Ryan
Ausiello: Hallelujah, Nashville fans: Showrunner Dee Johnson says the closeted character “probably will be out” by the end of Season 3. However — and interestingly — she adds, “I don’t know whether it will be voluntary.”

Question: Sleepy Hollow. Ichabod. Abbie. Intel. Go! —Molly
Ausiello: An upcoming twist. The Witnesses’ “relationship in a position we’ve never seen before.” An “epic climax” with “ramifications for Season 3.” (All courtesy of showrunner Mark Goffman.) Intrigued yet? BONUS SCOOP: Ichabod’s aforementioned karaoke experience is coming up in Episode 14, and we’ll get not one but two scenes involving at least one Witness taking the stage.

Question: I know you guys reported it was unlikely that Red Band Society would be getting a second season, but is there at least a chance we will get some closure? —Estee
Ausiello: As EP Rina Mimoun told us last month, the final three episodes of the medical drama’s first season — which have yet to be scheduled by Fox — will provide “closure for a lot of the current teen storylines” while showing ways that the adult characters’ arcs could continue (on the off chance of a pickup announcement). Episode 11, meanwhile, will feature the return of Jes Macallan’s Ashley and the introduction of Leo’s family — including William Ragsdale (Herman’s Head) as the heartthrob’s dad. Plus, the sometimes-underutilized Dash will be getting a love interest, played by newcomer Jessica Lu. “We’re packing a lot into the last three episodes of the season,” says Mimoun. “I’ll tell you that.”

Question: Anything on The Blacklist? —Missi
Ausiello: Regarding that gigantic cliffhanger in November’s fall finale — How do Tom and Red know each other?! — series creator Jon Bokenkamp says that burning question will be answered. Eventually. “Tom clearly has some sort of past that Liz is not aware of, that involves Red,” the EP confirms. “We will continue to tell that story. We don’t dive right into it in the Super Bowl episode, but that does start to bubble up later in the back half of the season.”

    “Back your nose away from the glue stick?” I love it!!

  2. Lysh says:

    Arrow is so gd heart-wrenching this season, I can’t wait for it to come back.

  3. Maryone says:

    Are you serious that Owen and Amelia will have something? Wow, I bet nobody knew that already.

    • Frankie says:

      He he. I read it wrong, thought he meant Callie and Amelia. Which would have been…..interesting. Oh well….

      • Danielle H. says:

        O my God, me too.. I had to rush to the comments to ascertain whether or not I was wrong. Thank God I was, that is one pairing that does NOT need to happen.

    • kath says:

      You mean because they’re the only two on the show who haven’t hooked up yet, due to Amelia being a newbie?

      Actually, I’m kind of glad they’re doing it. I like Amelia and I used to like Owen before Shonda ruined him with being pissy to Cristina.

    • Ray says:

      Yeah, that’s a regurgitated bit of info. No real scoop there.

  4. ab says:

    Another Hook backstory? Why are the producers and writers so obsessed with this women beating, backstabbing a-hole?

    • Gg says:

      Ok seriously? Hook’s had like 2 backstory episodes ever. Idc if u don’t like him it’s your opinion but get the facts right and stop spreading hate

    • Vari says:

      @Ab – Stop being ignorant and that too purposely to spread hate and stupidness. And as far as I know Hook is way more then the silly claims that u just labelled! There has been character development and he is a changed man, a better man.

    • Moment says:

      That’s some hardcore Hook hate you have there.

      • Tenney says:

        Yeah, there’s a couple of the same people who post so much Hook hate you’d of thought he done something to them personally. I honestly don’t get having so much hate for a character on a TV show; but everyone is different I guess.

        • Moment says:

          I haven’t seen one offering a sensible reason for hating him. All I seem to see is vitriol from the same few people like you mention. It’s just a TV show, people shouldn’t be getting that upset over O’Donoghues character.

        • gloria says:

          ikr tenney, makes no sence

    • Nav56 says:

      Firstly Hook has had 2 or 3 centrics. And secondly stop commenting just to post disrespectful hate. Thank you.
      I like Hook and I love his development so guess what I’m excited to see what we will get with him in his backstory especially if it’s concerning one of the 3 Queens of darkness – I think it’s going to be Ursula

    • Len84 says:

      Add me to the list of being a fan of Hook as a character and his development and played by the fantastic Colin O’Donoghue <3

    • ninergrl6 says:

      As opposed to the COUNTLESS backstory episodes about the Charmings? And Regina? And Rumple? Whether or not you like Hook as a character (I happen to LOVE him), the show needs to diversify which characters they focus on or it will just be a repeat of season 1 over and over again.

    • Joey says:

      I knew as soon as I saw this post that you’d get jumped on by every Hook-obsessed poster this site has to offer. Guess you’re not allowed to voice your distaste for Hook since he’s just so darn pretty.

      • kath says:

        No, it’s about the numbers. When every other character has had half a dozen to a dozen backstory episodes, it seems unreasonable to complain about a second one for Hook. Personally I’d rather a second Hook backstoyr than the zillionth Regina or Rumple one

        • Jennifer says:

          First, if you want to play the numbers game, Hook didn’t have a centric in 4a and still managed to monopolize the screentime. Secondly, it’s really not about numbers. One episode is too many if it doesn’t add anything to the show.

          • kath says:

            At this point, I don’t think the Regina, Rumple or Belle flashbacks add anything to the show and yet I keep getting them because other people like the characters.

        • ninergrl6 says:

          Kath, I agree with you 100%. I’m not the slightest bit interested in any more Regina/Rumple/Snow/Charming flashbacks. We’ve seen their back stories what feels like (and might actually be) dozens of times. Give me back stories that add a NEW dimension to the show, whether it be Hook (my personal fave) or Frozen or Ursula or Cruella or, better yet, EMMA.
          To Jennifer (and others I’ve seen post similar comments in the past), I’m unclear how Hook monopolized screen time in 4A. Yes, he was *in* every episode, but often not more than a couple of scenes. If anything, Rumple & the Frozen girls got the lion’s share of screen time this season, both in Storybrooke and in flashbacks.

          • LNS says:

            Hook was in every episode in episode 4a (yeah for a few scenes every episode esp after the 4th episode)… he is main character and guess what someone connected to Emma Swan, where Frozen arc was pretty much a Emma centred plot in a way. And also a Rumple plot going on as well since Rumple was taking advantage of everyone with keeping his intentions on knowing the Frozen sisters and Snow Queen to himself and then controlling Hook to do his dirty work.
            I also think Regina and Rumple backstories done add anything IN THE SENSE as we ALL know how they were back then – she was the Evil Queen killing and destructed anything and anyone, as was Rumple. Atleast with Charming backstory we get a sense of his roots, his character elements – hence why i enjoyed watching his backstory in season 4b where we saw him with his long hair.
            I also love to hear more about Hook and his backstory who he has encountered and seen, the dude was once a lieutentant and then a pirate… but how was he before these things. Or how did becoming a pirate affect him from being a righteous bright eyed lad to becoming a man who lost his brother and changed his entire being. Who his is dad who abandoned him…. these things i am interested in. Because Hook wasnt someone who out to destruct everyone or kingdom only ppl who wronged him which as we know was once the king he served under and Rumple who killed his first love and maimed him when he cut off his hand (something which he lived with as Rumple still cant admit he did that to his so called first wife)

        • gloria says:

          AGREED KATH

      • Perry says:

        Are you not Hook obsessed yourself, since you consistently post hate towards the character? And how dare Colin O’Donoghue be attractive! I bet the only reason that Hook has fans is because he is attractive! And of course, those fans must be teenage girls! …This particular anti-Hook argument regarding the shallow vapid fangirls is just bitter. As a Hook fan, I am almost as tired of it as the ‘misogynist’ charges. Intelligent discussion regarding the show IS feasible, and I would be happy to debate with those who had legitimate criticisms that weren’t sensationalist (like ab’s) or hypocritical (e.g. Hook is unredeemable, but Rumple and Regina totally are) or offensively attacking others in the fandom (I’m a feminist and assault survivor, but since I like Hook I allegedly support rape culture). But I fear playing to the lowest common denominator will continue until the show’s end, despite CS being canon.

    • Angela says:

      The writer’s have to prop their pet Hook, first by killing off Neal and now with more stupidity like this *rme*

    • gloria says:

      i hope the flashbacks will be about when he was in never land or something i hope they don’t show milah

  5. EL says:

    So glad we’re getting early B&B pregnancy instead of yet another time jump. Bones working its own negotiations with Iran is an interesting twist.

  6. lemonlime623 says:

    I hope all is well with you and yours, Ausiello!! Happy holidays!!!

  7. Abby says:

    No more Nick and Jess to look forward to, forever? That’s no fun. I was hoping Nick would grow up (cuz he needs to anyway) and find his way back to her. Maybe endgame, and Jake’s just being honest about the break-ups and make-ups not happening? I think I’m the only person in the world who still liked the show while they were dating…

    • K says:

      I want Nick and Jess too! Don’t give up! (I’d take endgame)

    • RP says:

      Nick and Jess were the saving grace last season. Without them (and Winston), season 3 would have been completely un-watchable.

    • Asia says:

      Yeah, I had to ditch this show after their contrived breakup (seriously intergalactic truck driver on Mars). Come on writers let there be growth, let the characters actually grow up.

    • Mo says:

      I love Nick & Jess. I understand if they don’t want to do the breakup/makeup/repeat routine with them, but endgame yes. They can use Cece/Schmidt as the will-they/won’t-they-again couple in the meantime which probably works better because they don’t live together. Just because this is a comedy doesn’t mean they should ignore character growth. Why can’t there be a way to have Nick grow up & still be Nick?

  8. Kate says:

    Even though I know it won’t stick and while I was amazed but I had foreseen the possibility, I have a feeling I will be so glad I save Supernatural to watch on Wednesdays and so I start Arrow right after and don’t have to watch commercials. So I can cry without stupid commercials. Roy you have to know you have to be there for the rest of your team.

  9. Bill says:

    Merry Christmas!!!

  10. Gina Torr says:

    An “epic climax” with “ramifications for Season 3.” But will Sleepy Hollow get a season 3? That hasn’t been announced yet. The ratings are bad and the fanbase is in disarray over the story.

    • Moment says:

      Personally I think the show will get a Season 3 as it stands now, but a lot will depend on how the final 7 episodes of the season do. And I agree that people are divided over the direction of the show, the same is happening with Person of Interest fans who were upset that the dynamic was changed there.

      • Gina Torr says:

        the writers this season seem to be on hiatus themselves.

        • Moment says:

          There’s a good show there just waiting to come out, and it does at times. But oh well, what can you do? I do think they deserve a second chance to turn things around, and perhaps regain a lot of lost viewers with a good, well written third season :)

    • ... says:

      Considering the state that FOX’s dramas are in (Bones on its last legs, Glee done, The Following really weak, Red Band cancelled, Gracepoint cancelled, Wayward Pines pushed to summer), Sleepy Hollow has a ways to fall before it’d be in danger. It’ll comfortably get a third season, but I think it’ll move to another night.

      • Angela says:

        That’s what I’m thinking, too. I’m certainly all for the show getting a third season, ’cause there’s so much story left to tell with these people.
        As for that spoiler news about Crane and Abbie’s relationship? *Raises eyebrows* Well. That sounds dramatic. And intriguing. I’ll be very interested to see what all of THAT means.
        And I’m looking forward to the karaoke scene, too. Good to know what episode it’ll air in-can’t wait! Thanks as always for the info.

        • Mary S says:

          I must disagree with you about Bones! I love all of the relationships between all of the characters on the show, and now that Emily/Bones is pregnant, there are an entirely new set of storylines to be explored. I am so looking forward to the next few seasons! We haven’t seen Parker in a while, so they can bring him back from wherever and let him play “big brother” again!
          And Bones’ dad and brother can come back, too…I love this!

      • Sarah says:

        @…

        I honestly think if they moved Bones to another night-away from TBBT-it wouldn’t be on its “last legs”. Because before TBBT moved back to Thursdays, it was the 3rd highest show demo-wise and the 2nd highest viewer-wise (excluding Sundays) on Fox most of the time. But that’s JMO.

        • Mary S says:

          What is TBBT??? Since I record all my favorite shows and watch them later, I have no idea what shows are in what time slot; I don’t even know what night of the week they are on, most of the time, and I certainly don’t know what other shows are in the same time slot!
          One of the perks of being able to record 4 shows at once is that I don’t have to know or to make an unpleasant choice between one or another- just record everything and watch at my own convenience. That’s how I was able to fall in love with some of the shows that got cancelled because they were in the wrong time slot competing against other more well-established and popular shows. They put INTELLIGENCE against the Blacklist and Castle, for goodness sake, (I think those were the ones) and so it was doomed from the first moment it was scheduled.
          But I truly have no idea what TBBT stands for…

          • Angela says:

            TBBT stands for “The Big Bang Theory”.

          • Sarah says:

            @Angela

            Thanks. You beat me to it. :)

          • Angela says:

            @Sarah: You’re welcome :).

          • Mary S says:

            @ Angela and Sarah: Thank you. That’s a show I have never watched! The only sitcoms I have liked in the last few years have already been cancelled. I guess I am too old to appreciate current humor; I get mine from shows that are not billed as comedies but have great humorous moments in them. Castle, Bones, The Mentalist (which I am very distressed to be losing) and a few others can always make me laugh out loud at least once in every episode while keeping a smile on my face the rest of the time.

    • Ray says:

      Ratings are down but not bad by any means–especially by FOX’s barometer.

      • Mara says:

        No. They’re bad. But another night could fix the problem. Hopefully the writers will fix the story too. It’s just not good this season.

        • Moment says:

          Another night won’t fix the ratings, but a shift in the right direction for the show if it remains in the same slot next season will get people back. The show isn’t reliant on Gotham for viewers, if there’s one thing that gives me comfort it’s that. It could work on another night but it won’t see much in the way of growth.

    • kath says:

      I’ve been really disappointed in season 2 so far. They killed Irving, who was a great character and too much of the show has been focused on the Crane family of Ichabod/Katrina/Henry and that’s just boring for me. The show sparkled last season when Abbie tried to bring Ichabod into the 21st century and it still does those few times when the writers write to them but most of the season has been pretty boring compared to season one. At this point, I don’t care if it gets renewed or not

      Karaoke sounds like it’s going to last about ten seconds, and then it’s back to the boring Katrina and Henry stuff.

      • Mo says:

        I agree. I don’t believe Irving is gone for good because if they had him sign away his soul for the sole purpose of wielding that sword when that is a plot point begging for some utilization, then I might have to give up watching. I understand they want to use John Noble as much as they can, but the Crane family drama in practice is not as intriguing as it seemed it could be. I’m pretty sure they’ll swing a 3rd season, and I hope they can find their groove again. This was one of my favorite shows last season, and it just hasn’t been as much fun to watch this season.

      • redjane12 says:

        I am hoping Irving comes back somehow – ghost? the whole plot about Henry owning his soul doesn’t feel completely resolved…
        Having said that, agreed that Sleepy Hollow has been dull this Second Season with all that Katrina-Henry-Abraham plot going around in circles

        • Jen says:

          Perhaps they resurrect Irving a s the new horseman. Maloch did say there have been horseman before you and will be more after you.” That would be a neat twist. I agree with the consensus though that this season has focussed too much on Katrina and its become boring. We can all clearly see where it’s going but the writers are dragggging it out. Her story line has reached its potential. Time to pull that chord. But not before Abbie gets a stable love interest. I don’t really like that male character they introduced. I even forgot his name lol

    • worldtraveler9 says:

      All indications are that it will get a third season.

    • Perry says:

      I think that Sleepy Hollow will receive a Season 3, but unless some MAJOR changes occur (and ‘major’ is still an understatement) I don’t know who will be watching and I don’t see it lasting beyond that. Hoping that FOX will fire AMC’s lead, a la The Walking Dead, and clean house. Goffman has been systematically dismantling and destroying all that made the show unique. I was holding out hope for some twists in the back half of Season 2 that would restore the show, but now I don’t think that they are coming. He needs to be stopped. Otherwise, he won’t be the only person out of a job…

  11. Bill says:

    How can anyone actually think that Oliver Queen is dead on Arrow?

    • Moment says:

      People seem divided. Some believe him to be dead and will be revived via Lazarus Pit, some believe his fall caused some serious damage but he’ll be rescued and nursed back to health, and some as you said believe that’s the end of Oliver ;)

  12. Vari says:

    Grey’s Anatomy – I saw that coming lol
    The Blacklist – Waiting to see what will unfold here.
    Once Upon a Time – I am particularly excited for a Hook backstory, can’t wait. Love to see his childhood.

  13. Nancy says:

    You always make me laugh! Thank you :)
    Even when I don’t watch the show and have no idea what the Q or A means, I read it cos you so often make me laugh.

  14. Alia says:

    I think I like Amelia with Owen, bit I also like Owen/Callie. I am really TIRED of Calzona’s drama.

    • tahina says:

      I got to agree. I was a hardcore Calzona fan until season 9 cheating SL., it has gone from bad to worse ever since. But, don’t see Callie/Owen thing, need to see her with someone else, but never more with Arizona, who I think is being written off anyway.

  15. Len84 says:

    Bring on the Captain Hook backstory!!!!
    And Emma/Hook progression which I love as well.

  16. kath says:

    I’m looking forward to seeing how Felicity and Diggle react to Oliver being “dead”. (They better not believe it just cuz Malcolm says so.) Should be some really good scenes with David Ramsey and Emily Bett Rickards.

    After that, I don’t really care much unless the Lazarus Pit brings Sara back. Thea lost me by lying to Oliver about her association with Malcolm so I don’t care about her any more, Malcolm hasn’t really been interesting since Moira died and he started riding roughshod over everyone, and zero interest in Laurel putting on Sara’s role.

    • Shelley says:

      Just what I was thinking. Team Arrow is the show for me. Not a Thea fan since she lied to Oliver. What a hypocritical way to be from her. My opinion Never cared for Laurel so these Laurel centric episodes I’m rather not excited about. Very much excited for Diggle and Felicity. And I wonder what flashbacks there will be about Sara in her past, and then the same about Oliver.

  17. J says:

    Yeah bring on the Owen/Amelia! Both deserve happiness and Amelia wouldn’t fit with any other male on the show anyway, also everyone else is taken. I wonder what they are gonna do with Maggie and Stephanie though, keep them sjngle?

  18. ninergrl6 says:

    “Ursula’s origin story, more of Captain Hook’s past” I’m very excited about both of these things! I wonder if they’ll have anything to do with each other since they’re both water-based characters.

  19. Cobra says:

    Thank you for the Justified scoop! Can’t wait for the new season!

    It’ll be interesting to see how B&B try to hide it, since it’s so obvious (to us). lol

    And I wonder how long ago SN told Ausiello about the Arastoo stuff, since Bones isn’t coming back until March?

  21. khouston86 says:

    No more Nick and Jess? Well I’m a bit less interested in the show now. It’s funny but not as hilarious as season 1 was and I mostly enjoyed Nick and Jess and their chemistry and kept watching hoping for a rekindling but if it’s not coming I’ll just wait for the rest of season to be on Netflix and then maybe watch it. This’ll save space on my DVR. Lol

    • Kassie says:

      I am really disappointed. Nick and Jess were so much fun. I used to be so excited for every episode. Now it seems like the writers have decided to stop focusing on character development, so I guess that means none of the characters can have serious relationships. Well, it is still funny, but the heart is disappearing.

      • RP says:

        I tried to watch this season, but it’s so hollow. Really, REALLY tired of the casual sex story lines. I hate to watch and feel like they’re turning into “losers”, but they really dumbed down everything, especially Nick. I was hanging on thinking they’d start to bring them back together in this second half, but I’m tuning out and maybe binging over the summer. Not worth it to be continually disappointed week after week.

        • Elle says:

          Yeah. This was not a good move on Jake’s part. Never deny in TV. Always leave a possibility of something in the future or you risk alienating the viewers and unfortunately, that just happened. Now, I’m gonna have to wait till the end of the show to get back to it.

  22. Kvivik says:

    Forever – it would be kinda hard for Abe to introduce his “father” to a girl, marry her, then have to explain how, 20 years later, he looks exactly the same. I always assumed that it was as easy as that.

  23. GildedRose says:

    Oh man, Arrow’s Felicity and Diggle going to break my heart, aren’t they? This is going to be brutal in the best TV kind of way. I sighed when I read the bit about the DJ though. I was hoping the show had come to its senses and dumped that horrible idea. Worst. intro. ever. #dumb

    • kath says:

      The DJ was such a self-loving douchebag the episode he was in. Thea has terrible taste letting him kiss her and not firing him for doing it.
      Arrow is already running too many storylines at the same time and not doing credit to them (Oliver gone, Thea/Merlyn, Laurel/Black Canary, Ray/suit, Roy as Arsenal, Diggle/Lyla/baby,
      Slade returning, cross-overs and whatever they’re doing with Felicity).
      This is one they should drop, or at least park till they get some others tied up.

      • Rob Watkins says:

        Thea and Merlyn is part of the Canary and Oliver’s storyline. They aren’t separate. I don’t like Chase either, but someone speculated that he’s really Slade’s son, Joe. I don’t know if that’s the case, but I’m happy that there’s more to him than just being a douchy love interest.

        • kath says:

          They doing too much all at once. Laurel will become InstaCanary and Roy will take the lead while Oliver is gone and at the same time Ray will be getting his suit to become the Atom and probably Thea will end up as Speedy by the end of the season. Roy’s been building to it for a while but doing Laurel’s and Ray’s stories at the same time means that the stories don’t get told properly. And Thea’s can certainly wait for next season.
          I think all the viewers end up getting cheated because it’s all happening too fast and without enough storytelling. Last season, Roy got short-changed in becoming a superhero because there wasn’t enough time with Slade and Sara around and those people like me who watch for Oliver/Diggle/Felicity got frustrated because Diggle and Felicity practically dropped out of the show for 10 episodes.

          Now it looks like the same thing is happening again. We’ll see Diggle and Felicity’s reactions to Oliver being dead, and then they’ll be put in the back burner for Laurel, Roy, Ray, Thea and Malcolm, until it’s time to pull them out again for the big season finale. I’m not looking forward to episode 311 and beyond because of it..

          • Rob Watkins says:

            Laurel won’t be instant anything. She’ll learn on the job. She’ll take a beating, but get back up. Roy didn’t get short changed in becoming a superhero because he’s still learning. Having a suit doesn’t mean you are instantly a great superhero, plus he already had a leg up on Thea and Laurel because he had been street fighting for a while.

            Slade was the antagonist last season, so of course he took precedent. I just don’t want to see more Secret origin of Felicity like episodes. It did nothing for the season overall as far as I can tell, and told us little about Felicity that we didn’t already know other than she was once a goth.

            Your last paragraph is nonsense. Laurel, Roy, and the other’s reactions to Oliver’s death are just as important as Diggle and Felicity. Let’s not forget that they are main characters as well. Felicity wasn’t always part of the team. There are 14 episodes left this season. That’s plenty of time to bring all of these threads together, assuming we don’t get more 3.05’s or Cupid episodes. I would also like to see Ra’s Al Ghul fleshed out.

    • redjane12 says:

      Completely agree on terrible DJ character and the way he was introduced. If they wanted us to all go ugh… ewww in a loop for every second of those scenes, they succeeded…

  24. sherry says:

    Ugh the thought of owen and amelia makes me puke

  25. I really enjoy OITNB but I feel like if it goes seven seasons that will be way too long.

  26. Mary S says:

    I don’t know why, but I have NEVER been able to view the pictures in ANY of your galleries. Does your gallery require a particular program that I (obviously) do not have? If so, how do I get it? I can see the thumbnails in the “proof set” below the main screen, but that screen is always blank for me. Help, please!

    • Brigid says:

      Try a different browser or upgrade yours. I can’t upgrade at work on my Explorer so I can’t see the pictures through that but I can see the pictures on Google Chrome. Hope that helps!!!

  27. S says:

    Am I the only person who thinks a Charlie Rowe (Leo from Red band Society) andBen Feldman look like brothers?!?!

  28. I disagree with Mitch’s wish for Castle for 2015. I wish the opposite. I want an early renewal for Castle and I would love to see it go out after season ten. I don’t think that is unreasonable or out of the realm of possibility. I believe they can still go out high at the end of season ten. WIth the talent of the writers, cast, and crew, and the number of fans, this show has staying power. I have no doubt ABC will pick up Castle for a season eight, however, my concern lies in contract negotiations.

  29. Teri says:

    Don’t think Castle is ready to be done. No way. It is still far above other shows. Don’t even like to hear mention of that. Please refrain from bringing that up.

  30. Joey Padron says:

    Happy Holidays Michael! Thank you for great scoop on my favorite shows.

  31. murley says:

    Thanks for all the great scoop. Thinking of you during the holiday :)

  32. Ana says:

    A big yaaaaaaay for all the Killian Jones flashbacks! Adam confirming this put the biggest smile on my face :) Cannot wait to learn more about our Captain’s beginnings. So much to explore there.

  33. Tracy says:

    Thanks for the Scorpion scoop! Love that show!

  34. gead says:

    Ughhh seriously Owen and Amelia? Predictable because they’re both single, but such a horrible decision. No one can top owen and cristina… and it’s so ooc for owen to fall in love with someone else other than her. I can’t watch grey’s anatomy anymore it has gotten so bad… i hate this. -.-

  35. Briggs says:

    Team Arrow in mourning. That looks like it’s going to hurt in all the best ways.

  36. FB says:

    I still hate the idea of Amelia and Owen together. This is not coming from a bitter “Crowen” fan either, i wasn’t a fan if them either. This is coming from a fan who is over forced “ships”.

  37. sarratiger says:

    Is it weird that I’m still routing for Tom and Elizabeth? I think it’s more I really enjoyed Ryan Eggold performance and I don’t want him to go. Will there be anyone who understands Liz more then Tom? I mean after studying her and worming his way into an intimate relationship and feeding information back to his handlers about her, watching her every move and then eventually betraying her… Yeah it’s weird that I’m rooting for them. But four months of keeping him captive makes them even right? I’m a plant in you life you kept me chained to the ground on a boat, no harm no foul, lets start over?

    • Jean Alica says:

      This in 2015 but I just felt I had to reply to this. Tom turned the the manipulation of a person into an art form and continued that in captivity. Red might manipulate a situation but then that is that. Tom was prepared to use a baby to keep Liz close and that is where the difference between Tom and Red is marked because Red has rescued two children that we know of and will do anything to keep Liz safe. I want her to kill Tom when the time comes and it will be a clean kill not like an animal in cage. Never thought I would say this but I.ll stick with Ressler . Love the picture of Blacklist by the way. We cannot wait.

  38. disonba3 says:

    PLEASE don
    ‘t puyt Felicity and Oliver together, he belongs with Laurel, forever!!!

  39. AnnieM says:

    If The Blacklist really wanted to screw with viewers’ minds, they’d make TOM Red’s son instead of Liz being his probable daughter. Lol.

  40. redjane12 says:

    ‘We haven’t seen the last of Thea’s DJ-boytoy, played by Austin Butler. ‘
    More than scoop that feels like a warning… Most irritating character introduction ever… Also how can he be a boy-toy if Thea is barely 20? Is he 12?

  41. love says:

    Alright I gotta ask you guys..now that Oliver is ‘dead’ how are they gonna explain how he died to Thea. .is she gonna finally know he’s the arrow or atleast what he did for her?

  42. David says:

    And that is why I stopped watching New Girl (though I’ll probably watch the last seasons on Netflix)

  43. Luis says:

    “Arrow” writers already deserve a raise for all the drama they have wrung out of this season. If they can top themselves in the second half, I’ll take up a collection to send them on a nice hiatus vacation!

  44. Daisy says:

    I like the Bones first spoiler, but not the 2nd. Boring I don’t like Arastoo. And the Once spoiler was cheap! Of course there’s going to be new flashbacks. I WANT a Rumbelle spoilers!!!

  45. Jenna says:

    Many thanks for the Justified and Forever scoop. Fingers crossed for a second season of Forever. Looking forward to finding out if Matthew Goode will continue to play Finn on The Good Wife and/or the well received ___ on Downton Abbey next season.

  46. tjchurch2001 says:

    Am I the only one waiting & hoping Will gets outed by someone else (maybe part of the new Jeff-Layla relationship) so he will then complain about it hitting the press, & during an ensuing fight, someone (hoping Jeff/Deacon) hits him & says, “Welcome to Nashville,…!”?!

    • T says:

      I think based on the last show before the winter break- The “new Jeff-Layla relationship” is over. Don’t mean to be a spoiler but since it aired about a month ago and this is a spoiler article……. Layla is no more.

      • tjchurch2001 says:

        If any of that’s true, there never was a relationship!… Also, if Layla is “no more”, just add it to the list of times the show has set-up something only to not mention it again…

        I thought Jeff would sign Rayna’s kids, get Juliette back, start a personal & business relationship with Layla, or (perhaps my favorite of my own ideas) become the next artist for his label himself (due largely to Oliver Hudson’s musical past & off-camera musical connections), but this show seems to just want to disappoint all fans until they can write their own country songs.

  47. Rachel says:

    Oliver Queen in Arrow better get magically healed somehow! Because without him the show can’t possibly go on! I don’t like this thing between Felicity and this Ray guy. He’s too shifty. At first I was hoping for a budding romance between Oliver and Laurel but now I’m totally rooting for Oliver and Felicity! Either way,OLIVER HAS TO BE ALIVE.

    • Mary S says:

      Of course he’s alive! The show is called ARROW and could not exist without Oliver. They are just building tension among the fans and giving other characters a chance to have the spotlight. It’s all good, don’t worry about it.
      I’m curious about where he landed on the side of that cliff – was it a ledge or a tree that stopped his fall? Or did he suddenly turn into one of those cliff-divers we see in videos and movies?
      Whatever it was, we know he is safe…otherwise, the show would have been canceled by now!

  48. Gwc says:

    Any scoop on season 2 of Younger? Will Josh continue to play the love interest? He is one of the best parts of the playing ‘younger’ dynamic.
