Once Upon Time Musical Episode Spoilers

Matt's Inside Line: Once Upon a Time Musical Scoop, Plus Bones, Arrow, NCIS, Grimm, The Fosters, The 100 and More

Is Once Upon a Time staging a musical battle between good and evil? Will Bones ride off into the sunset? Will a robbery uncover an NCIS agent’s secret? Read on for answers to those questions plus teases from other shows.

Since you were first to share the news about Once Upon a Time’s musical episode, do you have more info? Is our Queen going to sing? —Lisa
Aww, flattery will get you everywhere, Lisa. It will also get you this confirmation that Lana Parrilla will be among those belting a tune. After all, what would a musical Once episode be without a clash between the show’s original rivals — in the form of a grand (and royally entertaining) sing-off between the Evil Queen and the Charmings? Because I hear that is happening, folks.

Can you please ask if Once Upon a Time‘s Archie will return in the second half of the season? —Becky
Yes, he will.

What can you tease about Eve/Juliette’s journey on Grimm? —Jen C.
Bitsie Tulloch tells us that Eve — who’s becoming more and more like Juliette these days, eh? — has “an intimate connection” with Adalind and Renard’s daughter, Diana, “that is unexpected.”

Anything happening THE FOSTERSwith The Fosters‘ Callie? —Marissa
You mean besides her big legal battle and potentially going to prison? An upcoming episode will find Callie getting involved with Girls United again. “Through Stef, we’re actually going to meet a new girl that gets into” the group home, executive producer Joanna Johnson previews. “We’ll go on a journey with this girl that will intertwine with Callie, as well, a bit.” The storyline also features the return of an old friend. “Daphne’s actually taken on a counselor role [at Girls United], and it’s amazing to see her progress,” star Maia Mitchell shares. “You’re going to see Callie supporting Daphne through that.”

I’ve been a fan of Bones from the beginning. Can you tease if Booth and Brennan will get a happy ending? —Elspeth
That does seem to be the million-dollar question, especially leading out of this week’s Episode 7. And it looks like you may be guessing until the final hour. “Episode 11 ends on a cliffhanger, I’ll say that much,” shares co-showrunner Michael Peterson. “The finale is a two-parter.” As for the happy ending fans seek, the EP offered this anecdote from his four-season binge upon joining the series. “After watching 67 episodes, my wife asked if [series creator] Hart [Hanson] was a hippie, because everything worked out. [For example, when] Wendell slept with Angela, Hodgins got along with Wendell by the end of the episode. Things work out. Hart’s very much a ‘people ride off into the sunset’ kind of guy, he’s an optimist, and we wanted to infuse that into the finale. We wanted to have them go through hell, but at the end, we want them to ride off.”

Any scoop on Quantico? –Sam
When we asked showrunner Joshua Safran for a clue about Hunter Parrish’s mysterious role, all he offered is this: “He is connected to this show in a way that is very obvious.” Make of that what you will.

Any scoop you can share on Season 2 of The Detour? –AOC
The family will be based in New York City this season, but at least one member is not looking forward to life in the Big Apple. “For Robin, at least, there are some maybe not-so-legal things that she has to grapple with, coming back to bite her in the ass,” Natalie Zea teases.

Any informationNCIS about NCIS‘ McGee and Delilah would be appreciated. —Larry
Oh, Delilah’s fiancé will have his hands full in the March 7 episode, when he returns home to the apartment he’s subletting from DiNozzo to find a robbery in progress. Turns out that the perpetrator of the triple-homicide that made the digs so nicely priced hid something of value there — and considering that McGee never looped Delilah in on the apartment’s “checkered” past, he’ll have much ‘splaining to do when she gets back from assignment in Dubai.

Will Adrian be back in Season 2 of TNT’s Animal Kingdom? —Davina
Yes, Spencer Treat Clark will be back as Deran’s… “ex”?

Do you know the name of the song that was played at the end of the Feb. 1 episode of Criminal Minds? —Maria
As Reid used a scarf to tether himself to his sleeping mother, that was “Amanda’s Song” playing, written, produced and sung by post supervisor Jason Koiter.

Got any scoop on Switched at Birth? — Kayla
As TVLine previously reported, Episode 100 (airing Tuesday, March 21) will feature the improbable return of Gilles Marini’s Angelo… as a ghost? Vision? Flashback? This is all executive producer Lizzy Weiss would share: “It is a very emotional episode in which Angelo revisits the family in a way.”

What’s up with new guy Riley on The 100? Everyone seems to know and love him. Will we find out more about his relationship with Clarke? —Kate
Funny you should ask about Riley and Clark’s relationship, because it definitely takes a turn in Wednesday’s episode — and not for the better. Without giving too much away, let’s just say Riley isn’t a fan of Clarke making life-or-death decisions on everyone else’s behalf.

Does Thea haveArrow anything coming up on Arrow? —Justin
Finally returned from that dreaded conference (and with her sharp tongue wonderfully on display), Thea is “headed in a direction that’s very similar to where her mother was before she was killed in Season 2. We’re excited about it,” says co-showrunner Wendy Mericle. “She’s been dealing with all of these issues the same way Oliver has — with her bloodlust and with other elements of her past — and this season’s going to find her in a similar place but for very different reasons..” EP Marc Guggenheim promises “some really terrific Oliver/Thea scenes in next week’s episode and beyond,” including what Mericle deemed “one of my favorites on the show.”

Long time no Supernatural scoop! Care to remedy that? — T.J.
Hmm, that’s a fair cop. Next Thursday’s episode, which features the return of Crowley’s son Gavin, is “a big one” for the King of Hell and his mother Rowena, actress Ruth Connell says. “You finally get to see more of the familial relationship with the three of them” — as well as some “borderline shocking” moments.

Anything about Timeless‘ season finale? —Rory
I hear there’s a twist you’re gonna slap yourself for not seeing coming.

Do you have any information on when Starz’s American Gods, NBC’s Midnight, Texas and AMC’s The Terror make their debuts? —Knight of Ren
TBA, TBD and “absolutely in 2017.” Always here to help!

    I have absolutely no doubt that Bones will end with B&B being happy and frankly, the people who worry that Sully will come between them must be watching a different show. Anyways, I’m really excited to see how Bones ends BUT at the same time I’m not because I’m just not ready to say goodbye. Still in denial.

    • Maggie says:

      I agree completely. I can’t imagine them not being together at the end. What a letdown that would be for the fans. I too have watched from the beginning and I love this show. I will miss it so much!!!! Love Booth and Bones!

      • July Lark says:

        Every single thing that Peterson says makes me ranty.. I should be panting for these last few eps and I just want it to be over so I can forget it. This show has been crap since HH left for his other commitments. Peterson has broken his word to us time and again about things that would never happen, can you even imagine HH endangering the children?, Peterson also said bnb wouldnt break up, but then Brennan kicked him out of the house? Now we wont know until the end if bnb get their happy ending. Please be over, they have positively ruined this show.

        • Frankie707 says:

          Uhm, Peterson wasn’t even in charge during S10 when the gambling arc happened. Michael Peterson has never broken his word on anything he promised for the show. And yes B&B will have a happy ending…riding off into the sunset.

    • kmw says:

      Yep me too. And some of us ( and I will include myself in this) have gotten carried away with this Sully spoiler. The Bones fans who dislike Brennan or are just ardent Booth fans are having a field day with this. I am no fan of Sully mind you but it seems like Tuesdays episode is not going to be anything like we think its going to be at all. Does anyone really believe infidelity could be forgiven four episodes? No it cant and that is why it isn’t happening. And this spoiler given here is more likely to do with the actual safety of ALL of the characters on Bones not just Booth and Brennan. They are not splitting them and they aren’t going to ruin Booth and Brennan on Tuesday

  2. Andrew Hass says:

    On Bones, i’m sure Booth and Brennan will get their happy ending but it may not be 100% happy.For example maybe something happens that impacts their careers.As Switched At Birth, i’m wondering if Angelo appears in dreams or even if it will be a what if episode where we see what might have happened if Angelo had lived.

  3. Wrstlgirl says:

    I’ve gotten to the point where I DVR The Fosters so I can ff through all things Callie. I enjoy the show a lot more now.

    • vinny says:

      my wife feels the same way but she’s ready to give up on the show because of her…..I’m still watching tho

      • Wrstlgirl says:

        I love Jesus and Mariana and really wish they’d bring their father back for a bigger role. He should be a part of Jesus recovery.

      • jericho says:

        This is me 100%. I used to watch because of her, but the writing has just gotten worse and worse. While before it has some sense of believeability in the unbelievable, now its just gotten bad. Not EVERY charcter on the show needs to have bad stuff happening to them all the time. Why can’t someone (anyone) be a little happy for a little while? Its not just the Callie stuff I FF through at this point. If they dont have some fun on the damn show again soon I am done.

        • Brian Kyle says:

          @Jericho not all the characters are having bad stuff, Jude is just experimenting (POT) like a lot of individuals, Mariana just plain stupid , talking Jesus medication , talking to Nick even though told not too, lying to Matt, Brandon well just stupid no other way to put it, as for Jesus currently protecting his sister’s honor gee that is what brothers are supposed to do!!! now that is for recent story arcs!!! as for past I would chalked up to growing up living in a Foster home (no pun intended) now as for Callie her arcs are overly written for the Drama affect for television many of her negative things were not of her doing!!!
          The Fosters is an awesome show simple as that

  4. Sophie says:

    Glad to hear the Queen will sing in the battle between good and evil, but thoroughly disappointed that there won’t be a duet between the only confirmed soulmates on Once Upon A Time – Robin and Regina. Great pity they didn’t include the only actor there, who besides Colin, has actual experience in music..

  5. Ian says:

    Yay for Spencer being back on Animal Kingdom!
    Him and Deran are pretty much the last reason to even watch. What the rest of family did to Catherine is inexcusable.

  6. Luis Roman says:

    Looking forward to seeing Thea with a substantial plot line – I hope it involves a confrontation with Susan. Guggenheim seeming to say the Susan plot line will not follow the direction most fan speculation assumes ie. Susan dropping the hammer on Oliver.
    Isn’t it a tad convenient that Felicity is using information from the Pandora files to find Prometheus;’ mother?

  7. Joel Maurice says:

    Does that mean that Hunter Parrish is a DEA agent?

  8. Jason says:

    On Grimm, I’m betting that Eve’s connection with Adalind and Dianah has something to do with a cross pollination resulting from the spells they performed to look like each other. My hope is that this connection can become a positive thing. I would love to see these two women help and lean on each other instead of fighting over a man. To see them bond and heal old wounds would be the truly unexpected path.

  9. Billy Bob Johnson says:

    “…my wife asked if [series creator] Hart [Hanson] was a hippie, because everything worked out.”
    If I wanted the Three Ds (divorce, disease, death) every week, I’d just turn on the news. There should be more riding off into the sunset. Not that there can’t be problems along the way, but in the end, the story’s heroes make it.

    • digitalred93 says:

      THIS. Thank you. I’m missing the heart from Hart (ha). The optimism of the earlier years was what made the series worth watching. I’m a compleatist so I’ll watch till the end, but I missing that upswell Bones used to give us.

  10. Billy Bob Johnson says:

    “Anything about Timeless‘ season finale? I hear there’s a twist you’re gonna slap yourself for not seeing coming.”
    I’m guessing that someone fighting to stop Flynn is Rittenhouse, but not who you expect.

  11. maphead says:

    Our Queen? Not my Queen. Done with that character already. Campy and boring.

    • Michelle says:

      Hear, hear! And she isn’t even a queen in he really own right, she’s just a dowager queen. Snow would be the actual queen.

    • DebG says:

      But she is our Queen. She won the Sovereignty fair and square. And now for the good of the Kingdom we all have to stand together behind her…Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. I guess that I’ve been reading too many political threads lately!

    • Jaissa says:

      You’re a CS fan aren’t you? Jk, lol.

  12. SAM says:

    I have read at other places that “Midnight, Texas” is supposed to premiere Sunday, April 30.

  13. Nicky Aiuto says:

    Just reading about the musical ep being about Snowing and the Evil Queen seemed better than I thought. And possibly it appears some of the sets like the Oz scene or Jolly Roger Scens might be for flashbacks or something. Especially if one or two regulars are gone in previous eps and appear in flashbacks just like how Neal appeared in flashbacks only in season 3 after his death. I am going to enjoy the next feud between Snowing and Evil Queen. It is a great tradition and very famous somehow.

    • What characters would be gone in previous eps? We have bts showing that Hook is back from what ever adventure he had been on off 18 filming at Town Hall set few days ago. The musical ep is ep 20 and we know that thanks to the choreographer posting that set location list. Also A&E said Jen would sing so not all the singing should be flashbacks. Not denying there will be quite a bit in flashbacks but we have to have at least one present one for Jen to sing like they said at TVfest.

      • Nicky Aiuto says:

        What characters would be gone in previous eps? I meant previous eps after eps like 18, 19 and 20. And when you say bts showing that Hook is back from what ever adventure he had been on off 18 filming at Town Hall set few days ago, Big deal. There hasn’t been more bts photos of him or CS sillyness after that. It wasn’t alot.

        Be forewarned, since Brigitte (one of the writers for 18) gave us a hint that something from that ep will make her cry for two weeks, it sounds related to something tragic. That’s something emotional. And even though this ep seems to be a Zelena centric, there is another side of the story. Cause, since Tiger Lily is appearing in this ep too, she is probably out for vengeance and might succeed. And from those BTS, Charming stormed out of the hall as though he was angry about something, It most likely had something to do with who murdered his father at last cause we were teased about that reveal for ep 17 and it was already hinted in Josh’s interviews of who was the murderer. Tiger Lily most likely may have had a similar problem as Charming did (since we were hinted that Hook did something terrible to her).

        • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

          ENOUGH WITH THE CREEPILY DETAILED SET PIC ‘SPOILERS.’ Thank you.

          • don’t get how they were creepily detailed just cause I mentioned the place but sorry. Don’t worry I won’t bring up again.

          • maphead says:

            I don’t see these details as creepy, they are simply spoilers/speculation lifted from set photos. YOU took leaked casting notices (Adam said someone leaked them) and posted an article about them yesterday, with your own speculation tied to it. How is that any different? You did it for clicks because that is your job.

            I do agree that some people take stuff too far, but I don’t think the commenters here did anything different than you with your speculation article.

          • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

            I actually “speculated” nothing. I presented quotes from the head of ABC indicating a degree of “reset,” and shared two casting calls for characters that figure into season finale and any possible Season 7. (Readers then speculated on the characters.) Quite different from monitoring every footstep an actor takes whilst trying to do their job at an outdoor location.

  14. Haz says:

    Oh NCIS…how you have fallen. Dinozzo is gone, unless Bull has a major ratings drop in the next couple of weeks Weatherly is not coming back. Move on. How many years did Dinozzo live in this apartment? He had a musician throw a party, it has been shot up, how many feds have been in it? I just cannot fathom why someone is just now breaking in or how all these seasoned federal agents missed finding something, also Dinozzo would have went over that place with a fine tooth comb. At least write realistic, plausible story lines because this one just makes it seem like McGee is an awful fed.

    • claudiagail says:

      How about because the criminal is just now out of prison – either on parole or just escaped? And how does that make McGee an awful fed? And I’ve heard of things being hidden in houses for decades that aren’t found. Sounds like you’re just a disgruntled fan still whining over Weatherly leaving. Personally, I think the show, in trying to reset itself, still has a lot of life in it. . As for Bull, I can’t comment on the show itself as I’ve never watched it, but I do know the ratings have been less than stellar.

      • Haz says:

        That’s not the case because I do watch Bull. I tried two episodes and dropped it. Plus I stuck with it after Cote left and gave Bishop a chance. In all honesty I was excited for this season when I found out Jennifer Esposito was joining the cast. I enjoyed her in Samantha Who, Dracula 2000, and a few other movies she’s been in. However there are way too many cast members we hardly seen Ducky, Jimmy, or Vance. The MI6 officer is a full time cast member yet I hardly ever see him. It’s just all jumbled to me.

      • Paige says:

        I think the show is getting better. The first part of the season was difficult and off-kilter a bit, probably due to the unexpected death of the show-runner and having to air some episodes out of order due to elections, baseball, etc. The second half of the season is quite good with a fantastic Palmer episode and the latest Abby episode. The new show-runners are doing a great job,

        I agree prisoner or cell mate got out to return to scene.

    • grazelled says:

      Not disappointed in McGee but all the “alphabet” feds that came through before McGee even moved in. If Tony didn’t know or the CIA, FBI, ATF and any other agency before now, there better be a good story line to explain this. I’ll wait to see the episode though, there might be an interesting surprise.

  15. It said opps we think you may have already said that!! Well if your site wasn’t so slow I wouldn’t have 2 hit the comments button 3 times

  16. Luis Roman says:

    I see “The Sin-Eater” brings back Adrian Holmes’ lt. Frank Pike. I’m calling it now. Pike is Prometheus.

  17. Jennifer says:

    I am extremely wary of this musical Once episode but ngl, an EQ/Charmings number sounds delicious.

  18. Sherri says:

    I’m so glad there will be a McGee centered episode of NCIS! With such a large cast now, he doesn’t get featured as much as in some previous seasons. I enjoyed Sean Murray’s acting in last week two-part episode, especially in the NCIS: NO segment. It was refreshing to see McGee in a different environment and with a “fan.”

  19. Kerri says:

    Ha ha ha ha ha – You’re so mean!

    “TBA, TBD and “absolutely in 2017.” Always here to help!”

  20. Sally Forth says:

    You know what? Eff you, Michael Peterson. You and your co-showrunner have very successfully taken B&B to hell, and the viewers along with them. Before it started, you called Season 12 a ‘gift’ for the fans and frankly, this gift is about as welcome as an STD. How dare you. How dare you. What you’ve managed to do to this show bears as much resemblance to the Booth and Brennan fans know and love as Frankenstein does to a living person – an apt metaphor considering how many of our most beloved characters are now just cadavers in the graveyard you built. Congratulations. The ashes of these twelve episodes will forever taint the eleven seasons that came before.

    • kmw says:

      Please explain what Peterson has done other than give out a spectacularly horrible spoiler that is so far of where this next episode is going to be? No Peterson hasn’t ruined the show and yes while there are some things that I am not happy about( Sully) he mostly has given us a pretty good year. I love that everyone believes Brennan is going to cheat. Having dinner with someone doesn’t constitute cheating and even though HH isn’t in charge anymore Bones isn’t going there. You cannot forgive cheating in four episodes. And it clearly seems like Booth and Brennan are ( semi) back on track at the end of this episode . And Peterson said episode 11 is a cliffhanger? Well that cliff hanger has nothing to do with Booth and Brennan personally it more likely has to do with their jobs( in particular Brennan’s) and everyone being in danger. My feeling is this particular spoiler about Sully has ruined this last season for some fans and I get it but the episodes so far have been really good

      • Frankie707 says:

        I’ll bet you no one can name one thing MP and JC have done to ruin B&B because there isn’t anything other than maybe what they’ve dreamed up in their minds, and even those spoilers it’s people picking and choosing which words in a sentence and which ones to ignore so that they can get their panties in a twist. I honestly don’t know why any of the sites even publish spoilers on Bones because of the way people attack in the comments and turn them into a viperous snake pit of fury.

  21. Emily says:

    I think that Lucy was Flynn’s wife on Timeless!

  22. T.W.S.S. says:

    Sounds like Thea’s leaving Arrow.

  23. Val says:

    i hope this isnt just the regina and evil queen musical, i am seeing too much of her and its doing my head in

  24. Alichat says:

    3) Ok regarding Eve/Juliette on Grimm, there are a couple of things I have been wondering. Does Diana remember Nick’s mother and Juliette’s role in her death? She remembers Meisner, so shouldn’t she remember the woman that raised her from birth and how she died? Also, has anyone else been wondering if Kelly is really biologically Juliette’s child? I have wondered that since Adalind’s pregnancy. At first I thought perhaps that would be what breaks Juliette out of her ‘world-hate’ mode after she became a Hexenbeist, because they have done some crazy crap on this show. Also, if doing that spell made Juliette become a wesen like Adalind, it just didn’t seem crazy to me that the baby conceived when Nick slept with Adalind-as-Juliette would be Juliette’s child. Anyone else had that thought?

  25. kmw says:

    Thanks for the Bones scoop We all know it is going to work out in the end with Booth and Brennan no matter what happens Tuesday. They are strong and not a stupid plot with and old boyfriend will hurt them

  26. Steve brown says:

    Hi. Any news on if there will be a season 2 for timeless? I hope so and me and many of my friend love this show.

  27. SunnyStar says:

    I’m so glad we finally got the confirmation Lana is actually singing in the Musical episode, because all the articles talking about that ep mentioned other actors having musical backgrounds or whatever and I all I cared about was to know if Lana was going to sing or not. So I’m happy we got the confirmation!

  28. miria says:

    The 100: Good to learn something about Riley, and maybe about his relationship with Clarke, who obviously knows him from the Ark. Maybe we’ll also learn a bit about him and Bryan? Would be interesting to get to know something about their days on the ground short after they arrived.

    Timeless: “a twist you’re gonna slap yourself for not seeing coming” I honestly have no clue what this twist could be, but I’m prepared now. ;)

  29. Jaissa says:

    I’m excited about the ouat musical episode and I can’t wait for once to prove all the complainers and haters wrong. And I also can’t wait to hear lana sing and also prove the haters wrong. Lana in my opinion is the only thing keeping the show going. Sorry not sorry.

  30. Rose says:

    I would loveeee to see Pure Genius come
    Back ! I love all the characters , love the newer technology they use to cure patients , the future is not far away in fact
    Some of these new technologies are being used ! Like a pill you take and it opens up to travel to where you are sick ….. this show was so fastanating and interesting , please try on other nights , like Sunday nights when people are home ! I know it will be a hit …….Thank you
