'Supernatural,' 'Fringe,' 'NCIS,' 'Good Wife': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Russell/CBS; Jack Rowand/The CWFirst, a little thank you to everyone who has been sending in questions to Spoiler Room. Your thoughtful, energetic, and sometimes incredibly lengthy inquiries are both entertaining and motivating.

That said, start sending more because Spoiler Room is (trumpets) going TWICE a week. Yes, Roomies, starting next week, you’ll get double scoops of…well…scoop! So keep those questions coming. And look out for the first Tuesday edition of the column next week.

If this was a bar, I’d slip this to you on a napkin, but this will have to do: contact spoilerroom@ew.com for spoiler requests or ask your questions on Twitter (@EWSandraG).


In the first five minutes of Supernatural‘s meta episode tonight, we’re introduced to the term “hunter’s helper,” someone’s butt gets a love tap, and Dean refers to himself as a “painted whore.” Yup, this episode, where Dean and Sam travel into an alternate universe where they are actors named Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, is everything super fans of the show have been waiting for and filled with inside-fandom jokes (alt-universe Misha Collins is a Twitter addict who wears ugly sweaters, producer Robert Singer gets mocked for naming a character after himself, and the season’s new showrunner, Sera Gamble, pokes major fun at herself).

But there’s also a small dose of mythology, which comes mostly toward the end of the episode, and an update on the holy war. Cas still won’t elaborate on the details (give it up already, man!), but it becomes apparent that the stakes of this battle are high when we learn of an unlikely alliance. But if you watch for no other reason, watch for the shocking death (…or is it deaths?). Like how I left that for the end? (Note: You should also read my recaps. I’m all about self-pimpage.)


There’s a reason NCIS is the top-rated show on TV every week — there’s never a dull moment. And as we head into the last episodes of the season, two of the plots we’ve all been following very closely are going to take some major turns. Executive Producer Gary Glasberg was nice enough to bust them open for me — and, by extension, you.

First up, there has been a tremendous amount of tension between Vance and Gibbs since the director was injured in “Enemies Domestic,” and soon it’s going to come to a boiling point. “That tension has continued to grow and manifest itself in different ways, and it absolutely will come to a head as we near the season finale,” Glasberg says. “Not only will Gibbs finally question Vance’s recent behavior, but he’ll take a stand against him as only Leroy Jethro Gibbs can. Get ready for the sparks to fly.” READY!!!

In other “spark” news, we’ve all been waiting to meet Ziva’s yet-unseen-but-much-talked-about boyfriend, Ray (and Tiva fans no doubt have had their mob torches ready). And since we know casting is already underway, we know it won’t be long until he strolls along. But, says Glasberg, “not only will we learn who he is, where he works, and what his intentions are with Ziva, we’ll also see him connect to the team in a way you never suspected. Ray will be full of surprises, and we are looking forward to sharing them with everybody.”

We’re (impatiently/eagerly) waiting…


Hardcore Fringe fans will agree that season 2’s “Peter” was hands up, down, and all-around one of the best hours of the series. The great news is that tonight’s follow-up episode, “Subject 13″ (which references the test subject number assigned to young Olivia), will rank right up there with it. Why? The episode focuses on young Peter coming to grips with his removal from the other side. (Of course, he doesn’t know that’s what happened, but he knows something is amiss.) And for those who hold a special place in their heart for John Noble/Walter, prepare to become completely infatuated with the golden-hearted character, especially when he takes a stand for Olivia.

The best scene by far tonight takes place in a field of tulips with young Peter and young Olivia. If you don’t tear up during this beautifully shot scene, I suggest you cross over and find the version of yourself with a soul!


Next week’s a big one, Cary and Kalinda fans. Believe me. But at the risk of violent acts occurring against me should I say much more about the — oops. Never mind. I better turn this over to Matt Czuchry before I get in trouble.

“His friendship with Kalinda, that all is going to come to a head over the next two episodes,” he says. “There is one scene in next week’s episode that I think will be interesting for fans to see.” “Interesting” is an understatement, Czuchry.

And that’s not the only big moment coming up. In episode 17, we can expect the Blake storyline to wrap up, but not before new information comes out that motivates the end of the season. “There’s a new storyline that affect Kalinda and the rest of the cast,” Czuchry teases. “It’s kind of one of those focal points of the season that wraps one moment up then snakes out of control by the end of the season.”

For Cary, that’ll mean not only picking a loyalty, but facing the repercussions of that. “With this investigation, of course, there are repercussions because of that. And with the new information that comes out at the end of the investigation, again he’s forced to make decisions about who he’s going to protect and how he’s going to keep his job. So there’s always a measure of how the decision that he makes could get him in trouble on either side,” he says. Good because we love seeing Cary in trouble (…and shirtless, but that’s a whole other issue).


Hurry before it’s too late…got anything juicy for me on Greek? Like when will we find out Cappie’s real name and his major? — Sam
The finale will answer both of those for you. You will learn Cappie’s (accidental?) major and all four parts of his real name. My tease for the latter is: Revolutionary War. Prepare your WTF face. Also, there will be more scoop on this next Tuesday straight from creator Patrick Sean Smith. Submit questions now!!

The Vampire Diaries scoopage please!! — Leslie
You heard her name last night for the first time, and soon, we’ll be meeting new witch Greta Tucker, who’s described in the casting announcement as being in her 20s, “African-American, cool, hip, smart. A bit of a thrill-seeker.” But Bonnie she is not. Based on the company she will be keeping, I’d say she’s not to be trusted.

The news about a death on Glee before Regionals has me terrified. I don’t want it to be anyone beloved. Any clues as to who is biting the dust? — Randy
An inside source says a ripple will be felt, but many of those close to your heart safe. Shall we celebrate this (sorta) reassurance with a Mike O’Malley group hug?

Any dirt on How I Met Your Mother? — Sara
This Monday will take you on a journey into the mind of Barney Stinson. You’ll see what I mean…

Would love some Nikita scoop! — Taylor
Melinda Clarke tells me there “absolutely” are plans to explore Amanda’s (probably dark and twisty) past. The bad news? You might have to wait until season 2. “I think that there’s been tiny little moments of it, but the writers definitely have consciously not explored Amanda’s past too much,” Clarke says. “All of these things should and will be explored, assuming we’re fortunate enough to have future seasons.” Speaking of season 2, did you read this?

Parenthood! Please. — Brandie
Get all glammed up, because we’re going to prom! Only the night proves to be a devastating one for Amber, who’s still dealing with some life-shattering news. (Well, it’s life-shattering to a graduating teenager, anyway.) Meanwhile, Haddie and Alex (whom her dad is not happy about seeing on his doorstep on prom night) have a serious chat about getting a hotel room. Yeah, you know what I mean.

Some scoop on The Middle would make my day!! — Jessica
If you were thrilled about the arrival of Brick’s new friend Arlo, get ready to have your world rocked…by weirdness. Because this kid is weird. In fact, he’ll eventually be too weird for Brick to stomach — and that’s saying a lot. In related news, things may go sour when the family goes to celebrate Mother’s Day II at a less-than-thrilling carnival. Awkward family photos, anyone?

Being Human on Syfy is great, but I like the BBC version. Do your spoilery fingers reach across the pond? — Jaime R.
If I try really, really hard, yes. And here’s what I got: Aidan Turner! Okay, not him physically (darn), but I did manage to snag some Annie/Mitchell secrets from him, specifically dish on upcoming sexy times (that will not require a third person!). “They have their own way of doing it, which I think is revealed later on,” he says. But he also hinted to some great moments between the couple outside of the bedroom.  “Mitchell gets deep into trouble and Annie’s kind of always there to bail him out, it seems, and there’s fantastic sort of stuff that’s coming up soon. Especially in the last episode, they all kind of have to make some hairy decisions on the spot, and Annie and Mitchell have some crazy moments.” I don’t want to start a fight (note: I probably do), but which version would you all like scoop on more regularly? Vote in comments.

Are we going to see any Jimmy and Sabrina action on Raising Hope any time soon? I love them. — Sam
There’s going to be a date soon!!…BUT (you knew there was a “but”) it’s going to be Jimmy and someone who’s not Sabrina. Before you pelt this messenger with fruit, I’ll let creator and executive producer Greg Garcia explain (and hopefully ease some of your fears): “He gets to a place in this season where he’s going to date a little bit instead of just pining for her. But he still definitely has feelings for her,” Garcia says. “We’re not closing the door on that relationship.”

Will we be seeing a return of Marcus to shake up Kevin and Scotty’s marriage again? And if so, is he the mysterious guest that causes havoc at Sarah and Luc’s wedding in the season finale? I hope he doesn’t return. I absolutely love Kevin and Scotty! — Gabriela M.
You’re in luck. The hottie homewrecker (Christopher J. Hanke) will not be the surprise guest at the much-anticipated nuptials. An insider tells me the original plan was to bring Marcus back to create some tension between Kevin and Scotty, but plans fell through because Hanke is currently busy on Broadway, working alongside Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. So you can breathe easy…for now.

Thanks for the first look at Outsourced last week with the Great Khali! Any chance we’re going to see more guest stars? — Tom
No word yet on guest stars other than the Great Khali. But we will see some returning faces, namely the A team! “I can’t give away too much because we just filmed it, but we’ve been exploring a lot of the Indian holidays,” Parvesh Cheena (Gupta) tells me. “And we definitely do see the A-team — you know, the cool, hip-to-be-square guys again — when we’re going through another holiday in India. They definitely make their return, and we kind of get our comeuppance on them.”

90210 scoop please! Preferably about the wedding that’s taking place J — Lauren
I can confirm that Ivy and Raj will tie the knot in episode 22, but be warned: There’s a very dark cloud that hangs over their happy union. You may or may not have clues as to what that is already.

I don’t know if I missed a memo or what, but why is season 2 of Justified not available on Hulu OR on the FX website?  Any official word from the network?  I’m a desperate fan who gave up cable! — Suzanne
Not technically a spoiler, but I’m happy to help regardless. Season 2 is on a 30-day delay from air, so the first episode of the season will be available online (both on FX and Hulu) on March 11 and will stay up for two weeks. Episodes will then roll out once per week for the rest of the season. Now…are you going to ask for a spoiler?

  • Dan in NJ

    What’s the feel on Fringe being cancelled? I think it is one of the best shows on TV.

    • Didi

      Right now, it’s still on the bubble…it’s making good DVR numbers but we need people with a Neilsen box to watch LIVE…..

    • Jill

      The fact that it’s actually had some decent Friday night ratings has helped. It retained a lot of its audience, which looks a lot better on a Friday night than a Thursday.

    • nalex1013

      Best show in years. I’m confident it’ll survive.

  • Lorie

    Scoopage 2x a week?! Gracias!

  • Ames

    Very excited for tonights Fringe episode. As for Supernatural, I am just not a fan of these wink-wink meta episodes. I’m sure it will be fun, but they can get so silly. I’m hooked into watching it though for those mysterious death(s).

  • ST

    I haven’t watched the most recent episode of 90210 yet but am I missing something? Who is Raj? And why would he and Ivy being getting married?

    • Reena

      so Ivy’s mom caught her smoking weed and told her no more….ivy called her a hypocrit (sorry spelling police) and she decides to get a medical marijuana card since they are in cali…raj is this guy a a local shop that hits on her and then takes her out and they get high…its kinda a weird storyline but i dont see how them getting married will work…

  • steelerdaddy

    I’m betting the “Glee” death is a Karofsky suicide, maybe because word gets out he’s gay. This would open the doors for Kurt to come back to McKinley.

    • Olivya

      Makes sense.

    • Flip

      I think Lauren, who is obese, will die of a heart attack.

      • Cheery

        One can hope…

      • Efren

        dusumpn on July 3, 2011 hey um how do i get my rmoete to change channels on my number two reciever? i cjhange the battiers and everything..i dunno?

    • Bobby’s Robot

      The tortured gay who commits suicide is such a TV/movie cliche, but in light of the sad real-life events, it might be justifiable here.

    • Kerri L.

      I kinda thought based on the info given it would be one of Will’s parents that we haven’t seen since the beginning of the show. But Karofsky is probably a better guess.

      • Mike L.

        How’s about Terri? It’ll send Schu into a spiral…maybe she was really pregnant this time (they did “it” when he was sick and high on meds)…

    • Trenton

      Or Dentist McJesse…Till death do us part allows for Mr. S to get back with our favorite Counselor

      • Portia

        This is what I’m thinking.

      • Laura

        This is what I think too… they’ve got to end that storyline somehow.

    • jen

      personally I think the reference to Mike O’Malley means that Burt is going to die of a heart attack. He already had one

      • marymary

        Nope, won’t be Burt Hummel. He is a beloved fan favorite, this scoop hints at someone not really a major character per say. My bet is on Karofsky.

      • znachki

        Also – IIRC there was a story a few days ago that indicated that O’Malley has a 6 ep contract for next season

    • elr

      Karofsky was the first person I thought of too.

    • cml

      Sue’s sister?

      • Elizabeth

        That’s what I was thinking

    • Winnie

      I think it will be Brittany’s cat that she mentions regularly. (No, seriously, I do.)

    • Kris

      I think that’s a bit dark for a light comedy. My money is on one of the judges at regionals or something like that (notice how only 2 judges were announced). I doubt a recurring character will bite the dust.

    • Mary

      I think it will be Sue Sylvester’s sister- who is already in some sort of assisted living situation.

      • Linderella49

        One can only hope it’s either Carl or Terri. But you’re probably right that it’s Sue’s sister. Just what Sue needs; more motivation to be even more wacky!

    • murley

      this is what i think. then kurt would return and maybe blaine will come with him for some reason or another.

    • Ems

      it’s going to be pavorati the warbler’s mascot. the warblers will then lose regionals as a result of being shaken up.

      • Jane D’oh

        It’s the bird. There’s already a leak confirming it somewhere else.

    • MDEP

      This thought has crossed my mind too. But I wonder if they would go there. I would think with the entire “It Gets Better” campaign, they may not want to show someone killing themselves because of their sexuality. At the same time, they say they want to portray the bulling/gay story line realistically, and as we know, it does happen. I would prefer they did not kill him off, but I like happy endings.

    • Russ

      Karofsky killing himself would be such a terrible ending to his story, not to mention sending out a bad message to gay teens. Having this guy come out and be happy is what (I hope) the writers are aiming for.

      • dakmart

        … Besides, the actor who plays Karofsky actually has show choir experience, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see him join the New Directions. One problem with Kurt going back to his old school is that this would make Blaine extraneous to the show, and does anyone really want to see that happen?

  • Autumn

    Thanks for the UK Being Human scoop. It’s definitely the best show on television that hardly anyone is watching. And as much as I love The Vampire Diaries and True Blood, it definitely is in a different league than the other vampire shows out there. Oh, and I guess I would love scoop on both Being Human shows (why choose??). I like both although the UK IS better. I think it’s because I’m such a Sam Witwer fan. Please tell me that Sally will be able to at least touch the supernatural beings soon because it really feels like there is a lack of connection between the three roommates. This would help it.

    • Christie

      Well I saw episodes of the U.S. version before catching the first 2 seasons of the UK one on DVD so that’s colored by feelings–and I’m a Sam Witwer fan as well. That being said, please Sandra, if you can scoop on both shows, it would be appreciated!

  • Beth

    More scoop on the BBC Being human please!

    • Sarah

      I vote for scoop on the BBC Being Human. I won’t bash the remake, just state that I really enjoy the original.

      • Jenna

        I prefer the original too! I just don’t see the point of a remake.

      • n

        The original, BBC version. It’s incredible! Awww, I love Mitchell and Annie – I can’t wait to see these … hm… developments.

      • L

        My vote is for the original BBC Being Human too. It is the better show of the two.

  • G8rfan

    OK, I’ve watched all of SyFy’s version of Being Human, and it’s not terrible. But it really pales in comparison to the BBC version. The British version has better acting (all 3 main characters are better), is more intense, is funnier and is just an all around better TV show. The one thing that is better on the SyFy version is Mark Pelligrino as the head vampire vs the guy who is the head vampire on the BBC version, who I never really took seriously. Now, if BBCA On Demand could get the first episode of Season 3 up and running, I’d be very happy.

    • AT

      Considering it doesn’t start airing on BBCA until March 19th, you’ll have a bit of a wait.

      • Jesse

        I don’t know what BBC America you’re watching but Being Human’s new season already started. I just watched the episode today on my DVR… and it was pretty Great! :)

      • aughra

        Actually, BBC America started running Season 3 of Being Human last Saturday (2/19). It may not be on On Demand then, but why wait if you have BBCA? I watch both, but keep hoping the Syfy version will quit its inferior copying and go do its own thing with “their” characters. Overall it’s a shadow of the original; the plot’s a rehash, but worst, the actors seem to be walking in circles with the characters–clueless.

    • Carly

      Agree 100%. UK version is superior, no contest, though the SyFy version is entertaining enough. The best part of the SyFy version is Mark Pellegrino. Okay, and maybe Sam Witwer’s lips, which are an awesome freak of nature.

  • vic

    I don’t care about Cary or Kalinda. What about some scoop about the main character: Alicia

  • Kiki

    I’d love some scoop on the America Being Human. I’ve got nothing bad to say about the British version, mostly because I don’t get BBCA and didn’t know it existed before the American version came out. I’m sure it’s amazing, but I wish people wouldn’t be so down on the Syfy version…give it a chance! It’s really good and getting better every week!

    • Jesse

      I actually watched the first two seasons of the British version of Being Human before there ever was a remake and I have to say… I’m enjoying the remake much more. Which is very unusual for me because every other British show that has been made into an American version has paled in comparison to the original British versions. I really like both but so far I think the remake has been superior and this is with the fact that I already know all the major plots points. I’m not sure where all the hate for the new version is coming from either… Just my opinion though, to each their own.

  • Pam

    I was a hater of the American version of Being Human but after watching it, it’s not that bad. An acceptable replacement if you are unable to watch the British version. I just gave up on the American version as they are simply rehashing the British plots and I thought I would just buy Seasons 1 and 2 of the British version.

    • Amanda

      The American version is just a sad rehash of the superior BBC version. I was going to use it as a replacement until I could get the BBC version but I was so not impressed that I just broke down and and got the BBC version. And I’m SO glad I did.
      More scoop on the BBC Being Human please!!

    • Kelly

      Actually, after the first six episodes they’re breaking away from the BBC version – in fact, the last two episodes have already laid a lot of the groundwork for the departures, and they’ll be more dramatic as time goes on, since SyFy’s Being Human has 13 episodes per season (meaning that it will surpass the UK Being Human in total episodes by the end of season two).

  • Anne

    I like the British version of Being Human better than the American one.

  • Joan

    Thanks for the Good Wife spoiler. I like Kalinda and Cary together. Blake scares the hell out of me.

  • Lala

    I love me some supernatural!!:D
    I think the glee death will be parvotti the parrot his death would definitely be felt by the warblers

    • abadstroller

      Maybe Kurt leaves Pavarotti’s cage open or/and gives him fermented bird seed (bird gets drunk and bloated and flies into a stained glass window)…or maybe not….

  • Tee

    I’m glad Blake will be gone soon. They seemed to try too hard to keep him mysterious and instead he just seems annoying and erratic.
    The only scene I enjoyed him in was when he tried to be coy with Alicia about Kalinda and she smacked him down. But that was really more about Alicia being cool than anything.
