Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on 'Smallville,' 'House,' 'Veronica Mars,' 'Office,' 'Lost,' 'CSI: NY,' and More!

Question: Do you have any new Lois-Clark Smallville scoop? — Trish

Ausiello: At some point within the first seven episodes, one of them will
confess their love for the other. (Hint: The one doing the confessing
is not pictured to the left.) Also within that time frame: Jimmy will ****** *** Clark’s ******.

Question: Any Gossip gossip? — Lucy

Ausiello: Team Schwavage is getting ready to introduce a new lust
interest for Serena, and I hear he’s loosely based on some dude named
Aaron Rose from the Gossip Girl books. Don’t read? Me neither! Thank
God for Wikipedia, which describes Aaron as the "herb cigarette-smoking
and vegan step-brother of Blair Waldorf and son of Cyrus Rose. He
drives a red Saab, and had an un-requited crush on his stepsister,
Blair. Later on he dated both Serena and Vanessa, and was accepted to
Harvard University."

Question: Please give me some good news regarding Cameron and House. — Tammy
Not exactly sure if this qualifies as good, but Cameron starts spending a lot of time at Wilson’s pad in the first two episodes. Officially, she’s sprinkling some of her special widow fairy dust on his Amber-grieving soul. Unofficially, I’m guessing they had to…well…um…Once again Wikipedia comes through in a pinch!

Question: Just three weeks until House returns! Give us something! — Kristina
Call me crazy, but I was getting a serious Damages vibe after watching the Sept. 16 season premiere.

Question: Huh? Fox’s official House site lists Thirteen’s real name as Rena Hadley. I thought her real name was Remy? — Polly
It was! It is! A House rep tells me someone goofed and listed her name as Rena on the site. It should be fixed by the time you read this.

Question: Are you seriously returning to Scrubs as Dr. Kim’s baby doc? — Kevin
Bill Lawrence ultimately caved in to my demands, so, yes, I can confirm that I will be reprising my breakthrough role as Dr. Hottiemchotterson in the season (and possible series) finale. In related news, take a look at the tripped-out crib I just put an offer on!

Question: Got any spoilers on Chuck? Please, I’m writing to you all the way from Spain! — Miguel
Anyone know how you say "Simma down now" in Spanish? Anyhoo, Chuck boss Josh Schwartz reveals in this week’s episode of Ausiello TV that "a major character dies" in the Sept. 29 season premiere. To find out what else Schwartz has to say, click here and watch the damn thing.

Question: Is there anything you can spill about the second season of Burn Notice? — Meredith
Nothing major. Just a little thing called a freakin’ 4400 reunion! Scott Peters (a.k.a. The 4400‘s creator) is directing this season’s 12th episode, which features a guest turn by none other than The 4400‘s No. 1 stud, Joel Gretsch. That’s the good news. The bad news is it’ll be a while before anyone sees the episode. You see, Burn Notice is doing that annoying cable thing and splitting its current 16-episode second season into two mini-seasons. season 2.A wraps with episode 9 on Sept. 18, and season 2.B picks up with episode 10 in early January. That puts episode 12 on the air around February…just in time for my birthday!

Question: If you want to keep your title as spoiler king, you need to hit us with some major Reaper scoop. — Jeff
This just in — major Reaper scoop! Armie Hammer (no relation to the baking soda) is joining the cast as Morgan, Sam’s half bro. Although it would seem he’s only concerned with spending time at the hottest clubs and dating supermodels, Morgan is secretly jealous of Sam, and has a darker agenda which will prove to be dangerous to Sam and the gang. Do I get to keep my title?

Question: Anything and everything on CSI: NY would be greatly appreciated. — Lilly B
If it’s true that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Alan Ball is going to be doing cartwheels when he hears this: CSI‘s Big Apple offshoot is looking for an actress to play a "Claire Fisher" type for a three-episode arc.

Question: Is the mystery character returning to Dunder Mifflin someone who had been previously fired? Perhaps a certain pregnant woman looking for a job? — Liz
Perhaps. Perhaps not. (Translation: You’re getting warmer.)

Question: Your Veronica Mars movie post is nearing 1,500 comments. That’s good, right? — Claire
It certainly doesn’t suck. You know what else doesn’t suck? My follow-up story in this week’s issue of EW (on sale Friday), in which Rob Thomas spills exclusive details about Veronica’s big-screen adventure. Hint: The FBI premise? So 15 months ago. Oh, and speaking of the new EW, I squealed like a 13-year-old girl when I saw the cover. Fifty bucks says you will, too.

Question: Anything on Lost that you haven’t been telling us? — Brenda
Yep. Tons.

Question: What will change Dexter‘s life forever at the end of the first episode of the new season? — Claire
The answer to this question can be summed up in two little words, neither of which I’ll be revealing here.

Question: Do you have any word on what the big love story is that Shonda Rhimes has planned for Izzie this season on Grey’s? — Jaime
I’m inclined to agree with most Ausholes on this one: Bee-yotch wants her baby back, baby back, baby back.

Question: I haven’t seen a Heroes scoop in quite a while. Can you make like future Hiro and give us a small morsel? — Liz
It’s official: Seth Green and Breckin Meyer will be geeking out for an episode or two (or three?) later this fall. Their deals closed last week. 

Question: Any news on Pushing Daisies? — Chris
Dirt‘s Danny Comden has just been cast in what my ABC spy is calling a "fun, cool" part. My response? Find me a Daisies role that isn’t!

Question: Since you’ve got the inside track, any reviews or early scoops on the HBO series True Blood? — Michael
I still haven’t gotten around to watching it yet. Well, that’s not entirely true. I accidentally popped in the DVD for episode 5 thinking it was the season premiere of Entourage. My first reaction? Johnny Drama must have spent the hiatus getting cast in some really awful direct-to-DVD vampire flick. I kid you not.

Question: I was wondering if you knew anything about the renewal status of my favorite show, ABC Family’s The Middleman. I hear the ratings aren’t great. — Julie
You heard right. As a result, it appears Middleman is on the verge of going on a permanent hiatus. Interesting factoid: I hear a lot of industry folks are really into the show and its leading lady, Natalie Morales. The feeling is she’s going to be what’s known as a huge-ass star.

Question: I, for one, am psyched that Michelle Rodriguez is returning to Lost. But my question pertains to your scoop last week about the casting of Darlene and Jill, or Doc Jensen’s theoretical analysis of your scoop. Was he suggesting what I think he was suggesting? — Dawn
I don’t know what you think he was suggesting. But I think he was suggesting that that the left-behinders got tossed back in time when Ben cranked the donkey wheel, and we’re about to get a glimpse of the early Dharma days!

In this new occasional feature-within-AA, I’ll be sharing with you some of the reader questions that, for reasons pertaining to personal security, laziness, minimal interest and/or a general lack of comprehension, I just didn’t feel like answering. Don’t make the same mistakes as these guys!

Question: When will TBS air the re-do of Match Game? — Paige

Question: Has any single entertainer ever won a Tony, an Emmy, a Grammy and an Oscar? — Monty

Question: Are you still based in New York or have you moved out to L.A.? — Electra

Question: How about giving us loyal Ausholes a list of fall premiere dates? — Duane

Question: The timing has never been better to invest in yourself. Technique Trading Solutions provides insight, intelligence and education for the self-directed active trader. — The Technique Trading Solutions Team

Okay, that’s a wrap! E-mail questions/hot anonymous tips/me sightings to See ya back here next week!

    vmars movie ftw!!

  • mp

    The answer to the dexter spoiler could be “I DO.” Those are small, life changing words.

  • La

    Jimmy will figure out Clark’s secret

  • Meredith44

    Oooh, Burn Notice scoop! I’m very excited about the news that Joel Gretch will be on the show. Hopefully a few more details about his appearance will surface. (Although it doesn’t matter, as I faithfully watch all Burn Notice episodes!) While I’m sad that I’ll have to wait until the new year for the second half of this season’s episodes, I’m psyched we have that at all, considering last year was a summer run only with just 13 episodes.

  • Danny

    Hey Mike, just thought you’d like to know that your “frenemy” over at EW is severely slacking! In her most recent spoiler chat, she “revealed” that Rachel Mencken would not be returning to Mad Men this season… a day after the Mad Men episode which featured, uh, Rachel Mencken. I called her on it in the comments, but they just deleted my comment and removed the “spoiler” from the post! The nerve!
    You always seem to leave critical things in your comments sections, which I think is pretty admirable. Anyway, just wanted to let you know you are clearly winning this scoop battle.

  • samantha

    No SVU scoop?!? What the frack?!

  • Kevin

    Yay! That was one asterik quiz I actually figured out!
    and I bet the two words Dexter hears are: I’m pregnant. :O

  • Lizzo13

    I’m officially psyched about the idea of a VM movie – especially since they won’t go with the FBI thing. Other than Adam Kaufman, who is definitely not on TV enough, it was too generic and boring…
    As for the person returning to The Office, I’d have to guess Ryan or somehow Hunter… I’m not sure what role Hunter would have in it, other than that he’s probably the actual daddy to Jan’s baby.. (Since when do they have catalogs for sperm banks?) It’d be interesting if he actually somehow ended up working for Michael and is the daddy…

  • B

    I knew Izzie wanted her kid back after Shonda talked about giving her a big storyline. At least it’s not Gizzie Round 2. UGH, that was atrocious on every level imaginable.

  • Lizzo13

    Also, Danny, I think you mean his frenemy over at E, not EW… Regardless, I’ve never trusted her, and I can’t stand to read her column because every time I have (or have seen video interviews), she acted like a little teenybopper. Completely annoying and unreliable, in my experience…

  • J

    Danny – I saw the same exact thing. I was all “WTF? I just saw her on the show last night!” And that was a great surprise, btw. So Mike, how about finding out if we’ll be seeing Rachel again this season. I have to believe this isn’t the last we see of her.

  • James

    You didn’t give us a scoop about House & Cameron. Your scoop is pointless, Cameron is not even in episode 2. What happens offscreen doesn’t count.

  • Jesse

    Thanks for the Smallville scoop Michael:D
    P.S “no relation to the baking soda” totally had me cracking up lol

  • james

    What!!?? Wilson and Cameron!?? That is the dumbest thing ever. Almost as dumb as relegating Cameron and Chase to cameo roles in this past season. I don’t know what they’re thinking.
    Also, thanks for Reaper scoop.

  • allie

    Dexter – I like the ‘I do’ suggestion. Also, what about ‘Deb died’? Unlikely I guess… Arghhh, not knowing is killing me!
