'Dexter,' 'Fringe,' 'Psych,' 'Grey's,' more: Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Spoiler-RoomImage Credit: Adam Taylor/ABC; Randy Tepper/Showtime; Liane Hentscher/Fox; Alan Zenuk/USA NetworkIt’s a good week in scoopsville, Roomies. Along with teasers for the shows listed above, we also have intel from Kevin McKidd about more dark and twistiness coming on Grey’s Anatomy; Supernatural showrunner Sera Gamble opening up about Castiel; and Zachary Levi on celebrating Thanksgiving Chuck-style. If that’s not something to be thankful for, nothing is.

Keep sending your burning questions about upcoming episodes of your favorite shows to @EW or @EWSandraG. Direct messages work, too.

OLIVIA PHONES HOME ON ‘FRINGE’
If you thought the Altivia stuff so far was as tense as it could get, wait until you see the Dec. 2 episode. I promise it will knock you (and Altyou) on your butt in the first minutes of the episode and keep you there the entire hour. The tension begins with Peter getting a message relayed to him from Olivia. The question is: Does he believe it? Should he? Meanwhile, a phrase Olivia once told Peter will play a huge part in this episode, and there’s a blink-and-you’ll miss it tender moment between Peter and Walter. Speaking of, Walter introduces us to the term “vagenda” (use your imagination), and we learn of a new (old) device that has the ability to communicate with the other side. Most importantly, to answer a question posed to us by Twitter pal @val04, those of you hoping for Olivia’s return to our world (erm, everyone) should tune in to this episode. Just sayin’.

‘DEXTER': ASTOR-NOMICAL PROBLEMS
@silviaPRT wants some Dexter scoop, and since we aim to please: Dexter’s step-children Astor and Cody have been MIA since episode 2, but pre-teen Astor makes her return in this week’s episode — though you likely won’t recognize her when she walks in looking like she’s working undercover in a vice case. Elsewhere, (in a bit of scoop for @Dansteele) LaGuerta and Batista continue to butt heads and this time it’s over a case she refuses to reopen after Deb discovers new evidence. On the Lumen front, if you’ve been sensing romantic vibes from the couple like @jillemader has, calm yourself! The real couple making major moves here is Deb and Quinn. Can you say love? Because one of them certainly can. Someone else who’s doing a lot of talking these days? The linguistically gifted baby Harrison, who says “Mama” for the first time. Guess who he says it to…

A PEEK AT ‘PSYCH”S ‘PEAKS’ HOMAGE
Utter ridiculousness prevails in Psych‘s Dec. 1 Twin Peaks tribute (would we have it any other way?), which sends the guys to a tiny town during its Cinnamon Festival to solve a case. Seven original Peaks cast members make appearances, arguably the most exciting being Sherilyn Fenn’s turn as the town’s cherry-referencing, saddle shoe-wearing librarian Maudette Hornsby. The rest is, as star James Roday put told us, “loaded up like a baked potato” full of references, including the Julee Cruise-treated opening credits we previously told you about. (DVR PSA: The episode is so packed that it runs 7.5 minutes longer than normal. Plan accordingly.) In moments unrelated to Peaks, I give you four words: Shawn, Gus, and tandem bicycle. And bonus scoop, because I like you: After a one-year absence, the show will once again have a Christmas-themed episode that Roday described as “It’s a Wonderful Life on acid.”

‘PRETTY LITTLE LIARS’ TRY TELLING THE TRUTH
Yes, if you want the whole enchilada of spoilers, you can always read the books. But I guarantee this: The hair styles on the show are 10 times more fabulous than anything you can conjure up in your head just reading. So there — TV wins. Now, for those who haven’t read the books (hello!), on the Jan. 3 episode, when Liars returns for the last 12 episodes of its first season, the girls try something new on for size (besides more covet-worthy clothing): the truth. First up is Aria, who ends up spilling the beans about her Fitz-uation not once — but twice. One of them doesn’t end well. And Emily tells someone very important in her life about her sexuality in a scene that will leave your heart aching for her. Also, Lucas (insert emoticon heart here) makes a brave and bold move that might or might not involve a confession of his own.

SIDE DISHES

@damagedself asked: Any idea which episode or around when Cristina will be restored to her original self on Grey’s Anatomy?
If you’re holding your breath, I advise you to stop. For explanation, we turn to Kevin McKidd: “They are building toward a big Cristina and Owen story in the second half of the season, which will be a different story, but they are still figuring that out. But things never run smooth for Christina and Owen, lets put it that way.” Bonus: You know all the disaster training Owen has been pushing on the gang? Well, it comes in handy in episode 11, which is a “very intense and quite dark but very uplifting episode,” McKidd reveals.

@smccartt asks: Where’s Castiel on Supernatural? Also are they going to anything about Adam — it’s not like Sam and Dean to leave their brother in hell.
Maybe they just don’t like him? (Kidding.) While there’s no word on Adam, executive producer and showrunner Sera Gamble elaborated a bit on Cas’ “tremendously awful position in heaven” when I spoke with her earlier this week. “He’s going through so much that he’s only alluding to that he can’t really talk about. He’s keeping as stiff an upper lip as he can because he is tortured and lonely and…I think he feels these are the only people who care about him in the universe.”

@michelecurran asks: Please, I need some Supernatural scoop!! Is Sam going to get his soul back soon?
As we reported earlier, don’t expect to see Sam’s soul before midseason. That said, Sam can expect one thing before the break: an ass kicking. In fact, the Dec. 10 episode — which guest stars Robert Englund (the original Freddy Krueger) as an unlicensed doctor who works out of the back of a butcher shop — finds both brothers on the receiving end of a “hardcore” beating. “I don’t want to give away the farm on this episode, but I will say both of them are at the very least near death in this episode,” said Gamble.

@LISALEE25 asks: Is this Supernatural’s last season?!
In the words of Dean Winchester, bite your tongue heathen! Honestly, it’s too soon to tell, but they are in the early stages of planning a “bold” new meta-episode set to air in spring.

Laura asked: I’m going through Justified withdrawal! Help!
As long as this doesn’t make me Dr. Drew, here you go: Rescue Me’s Larenz Tate just closed a deal to appear in one episode of Justified as Clinton, an ex-con serving out the remainder of his sentence in a half-way sober living house. He’ll show up in episode 4, which will air in early February.

@erninlow For Community, have we seen the last of Britta-Jeff relationship?
I don’t have anything on Jeff and Britta, but I can tell you that Shirley’s somewhat secret rendezvous with Señor Chang becomes not-so-secret in an episode after midseason break. “Troy tells the worst person possible,” Yvette Nicole Brown told us at the Tangled premiere in LA. “I think there are a few candidates for that title, but you will see that it is truly the worst person he could choose to tell.” In related Greendale dish, we hear that when Malcolm-Jamal Warner checks in for a few episodes, he will sport at least one Cosby sweater. Hey, I thought it was funny.

@reebsreiswig said: I would LOVE Leverage spoilers! December’s finale is so far away!!!!!!!!
You mean the photos from earlier this week weren’t enough? You may have an addiction, my friend. Google the symptoms for confirmation. That said, here’s one more photo (at right). You may now also Google “enabler.”

Jerry asked: Boardwalk Empire has been great. Scoop would be much appreciated!
What a gentleman you are. For that, I give you news on a character who is quite the opposite: campaign manager Harry Daugherty, played by Christopher McDonald. The actor tells us he will return for three episodes next season as the Secretary of State under Warren Harding. “We start all the backroom dealings, and then, unfortunately, we run into trouble down the line,” he said. History before your very eyes.

Ryan asked: Is this week Aquaman’s final appearance on Smallville?
As of right now it is. But if his portrayer, Alan Ritchson, has his way, it won’t be. “I think there’s a possibility that if they continue on the path that they’re on toward the Justice League, you might see another assembly of that — not that I’ve heard anything….It very well may have been my last time.”

@val04 asks: Have we seen the end of Chuck’s mom this season?
We have not. We see her next at Thanksgiving dinner during the show’s midseason finale, which is also directed by star Zachary Levi. “I think — like with all families — holidays are complicated and are often the place where issues come up,” he said. “You just [also] have to throw in the spy-saving-the-world stuff to our plates. But the episode itself is great and fans will love it as long as I didn’t screw up the directing too much.”

    Vagenda. Hah! I love Walter!

    • Jo

      I’m imagining vagi.. on a calendar.

    • AT

      Hmm… aside from the “Vagenda” bit, there was nothing in there that wasn’t part of the next week’s preview that was at the end of the episode. Something actually new and really spoilery would have been nice…

  • ALS

    For those of us who aren’t Twittering, Facebooking, or any other social networking ??? is there an e-mail address that we can send questions to.

    • Jill

      you can post questions here

      • Sandra Gonzalez

        ALS, as Jill said, you can definitely leave questions here, but I’ll look into getting an email for everyone. Thanks!

      • ALS

        Yes that’s true but in a weird way, if the question isn’t used or answered in the next edition, I feel disappointed. If I send an e-mail but still don’t get an answer I can pretend that I didn’t send it. Weird………..right!

  • tracy bluth

    I honestly hope we have seen the last of Jeff and Britta’s relationship. Once the show nixed that plot line it became amazing. Harrison must say “Mama” to his nanny, and I bet Quinn says “I love you”…although I’m not his biggest fan it’s obvious he’s been in love with Deb for a while.

    • tracy bluth

      Also, please tell me there will be at least one scene where Shawn and/or Gus obsess over a diner’s cherry pie. And yay Sherilyn Fenn!

  • Anno

    Thank you Sandra for including spoilers on my two favorite shows…Supernatural and Justified.

  • Flip

    If Dexter and Lumen hook up, I’ll seriously vomit. Rita isn’t even cold in her grave. Just NO.

    • Charles

      You’re right, she’s replaying the character on No Ordinary Family.

    • ben Iannozzi

      Are you serious I sense a real chemistry between Lumen and Dexter that never really existed between Rita and Dexter. Plus Rita has died and isn’t coming back. I just hope that Julia Styles will be staying on the show next year.

  • Ally

    i loovvee james roday and psych and i’m so happy that theres going to be a christmas ep! As for supernatural, i’m not gonna lie, i really don’t care that much about Adam but i really want to see Cass more so far he’s hardly been in any of the eps!

    • TJ. Church

      Gotta love the Psych holiday stuff… Especially for those of us who have no clue what “Twin Peaks” is about, or who anyone on it is/was.

      • bobbi

        Gee, I was thinking I was the only one clueless about Twin Peaks, so thanks T.J. for bringing it up.

  • anya

    Thanks for all the PLL’s scoop. It’s my guilty pleasure. But can we get some Glee scoop next time too?

  • Zoe

    Any chance the “phrase Olivia once told Peter” is the Latin (?) phrase originally said by his mom that she blurted out when she woke up in the hospital last year? (Apologies if I have any of those details wrong–it’s been awhile!) I was thinking during last night’s episode that if she told him that phrase again, he would know which Olivia was “ours.” (Although the preview with Fauxlivia apparently pointing a gun at Peter might be a giveaway too. :-)

  • Gead

    YAY! A solid C/O storyline! Can’t wait :D
    I hope it’s a baby :P

  • Templar

    I’m pleasantly surprised that EW is giving Psych some attention. Sean’s remark to Gus Wed. night about being the only black lead on a major cable network show was priceless. Can’t get enough of those two.

  • mary q contrary

    Is it wrong of me to wish someone else was doing the spoilers? Someone who could actually inject some humor into the whole thing? I mean, seriously, I used to read them all, even the ones on shows I don’t watch. Now I’m skimming. Oh, and I’m not trying to hate on Sandra. She regularly makes me laugh out loud in her recaps. C’mon, Sandra, you’re better than this!

    • MeMe

      I’m going to disagree with you. I think her humor is good and not annoyingly over-the-top with puns and wordplay etc. I know Ausiello was everyone’s favorite spoiler god around here, but sometimes his comments were not as funny as I would think.

      Keep up the good work, Sandra. The haters will come around eventually.

      Divisiveness, so hot right now.

    • MCS

      I also disagree. I skimmed Ausiello’s scoops for the shows I love because I found them over the top. I’m a big supporter of Sandra’s new column and I’m gonna give her a chance to get her footing.

    • AB

      Ausiello wasn’t worshipped by everyone. Just sayin’. He posted way too much just on his favorite shows and ignored about 80% of the other shows on tv. And he was more annoying than funny.

  • Jules

    With LOST gone, Fringe is easily becoming my favorite show on television. Last night’s episode was awesome and the episode in 2 weeks promises to be just as good. More people need to watch this show!

  • question

    Question? When V returns this season will they be doing the story line of the harvesting of humans like the orginal did?

  • julie

    how does the justified episode featuring larenz tate air in early february? the show doesn’t return until february and this is supposed to be the 4th episode…unless it’s coming back sooner and i haven’t heard that or maybe february got a whole lot longer since i last looked at a calendar.

  • Julia

    The worst person possible to tell? The Dean I’m guessing. Or maybe Pierce.

    • Becca

      I would say Pierce.
