The ABC soap — which famously jumped ahead five years at the end of Season 4 — may take a more substantial leap (read: a few decades) in the series finale. READ MORE

Question: Any scoop on Desperate Housewives‘ central mystery this season? Please tell there’s more to it than just the ladies playing cat-and-mouse with the cops over the death of Gabby’s stepfather. —Nadia
Ausiello:
There’s more to it. According to executive producer Bob Daily, “There is a big reveal at the end of the first episode that ties us back into the first season in an interesting way.” Daily confirms that it involves Mary Alice’s suicide but shoots down talk that the character will somehow turn up in the flesh. “She’s dead,” he insists. ” We’re not going to mess with the DNA of the show. We’re going to pay homage to it.”

Question: I need some CSI spoilers, please. —Sharp
Ausiello:
There still seems to be some confusion among fans whether …READ MORE

Question: Are you OK? That photo of you in the hospital has me on edge! What happened?! —Carol
Ausiello:
That’s really none of your business, Carol. Just because I tweeted a private photo of myself lying in a hospital bed to more than a million people doesn’t give you the right to ask me such invasive questions. Now make yourself useful and buy me something off my get-well registry.

Question: Just wondering if you had any info about Kurt and Blaine on this season’s Glee. I hear they’re not breaking up, but I’d like to know what they are up to. —Allie
Ausiello:

Question: Someone’s been stingy with the Glee scoop of late. And that someone would be you. —Lisa
Ausiello:
Someone’s about to make up for lost time. And that someone would be me.  I heard through the grapevine — the grapevine in this case being the red carpet at the premiere of Glee: The 3D Concert Movie — that Quinn gets back in touch with her inner bad girl when Season 3 starts. Also, word around town — the town in this case being Westwood, which is where the premiere of Glee: The 3D Concert Movie was held — is that several castmembers will be taking a crash course in tap-dancing in preparation for the Sept. 20 season opener.

Question: Will Alex be forgiven for what he did to Meredith in the Grey’s Anatomy finale? —Dawud
Ausiello:
As Justin Chambers sees it, that’s one wound that will not be easily healed. “What he did was wrong,” he tells me. “It was really uncool. There’s nothing worse than a rat fink.” Ironically, the Jesus Juice he was under the influence of may prove to be his savior. READ MORE
