Happy Tuesday, all! I come with freshly picked intel, completely pesticide free.

If you see your favorite show missing, remember to put in a request at spoilerroom@ew.com or send me a Tweet (@EWSandraG). Also, as always, feel free to include heaps of praise, your general TV musings, and mythology theories so good I’d like to claim as my own! See you again Friday for more!

BIG CHANGES COMING TO ‘BEING HUMAN’
Holy cow, Humans! Last night’s penultimate episode of Being Human on Syfy not only included a few nail-biting cliffhangers (Please don’t die, Aidan!), but it also left us on a great note going into the season 1 finale. Lucky for you, Sam Witwer spilled many a secrets about next week’s wicked finale to help ease the pain of the wait.

“There are actually a few cliffhangers, and there are a few provocative questions, primarily with Josh and Aidan,” Witwer says. And some of those new questions are likely to be raised in the flashback scene to two years ago that “explains something that Josh did earlier this season,” Witwer teases. “There’s a vengeful move that Josh does at the urging of [Josh’s jerk were-buddy] Ray. We learn a little bit more about why he did that. And we’re also catching Aidan right as he’s about to pull away from the vampires; he’s already starting to feel quite alone and isolated. So that, more than anything, allows him to identify Josh as someone else who has the same problem.”

But aside from exploring Aidan and Josh’s first encounter, the episode will also play a key part in defining what the trio’s friendship has become since their first meeting earlier this season — and what might change. “By the end of the season, the question of are they better together or better apart is answered — or begins to get answered. We have a lot of moments that are designed to remind us — sometimes literally and sometimes in a metaphoric way — how far these characters have come with each other,” Witwer says.

But just don’t get too comfortable with the direction — or line-up, for that matter — that you see now. Because Witwer warns that come next week, not all will be as it is now. “Some of the things we end with demand the show has to change to keep up with them.”

‘SUPERNATURAL’: A TITANIC-SIZED TWIST
Has the wait been long enough for you? Well, lucky for you, the first new episode of Supernatural in six weeks is all you’ve been waiting for — a little mythology, a lot of one-liners, and a heck of a twist.

In the April 15 episode, titled “My Heart Will Go On,” Sam and Dean find themselves in an altered reality where everything — from the not-Impala they drive (horror!) to the career of Celine Dion — is different as a result of the Titanic not sinking. But once Supernatural fans get a glimpse of how the ship’s safe arrival to the U.S. affects the world, you might find yourself wishing, like Balthazar (who’s behind the altered world), that the ship never sank. Particularly when you see the circumstances under which Ellen (Samantha Ferris) returns to the fold. If you, like me, bawled like a baby when she and Jo (Alona Tal) were killed off last season, you might shed more than a tear during this episode.

Also great? Many bromantic moments between Dean, Sam, and the “dirty-trenchcoat-wearing angel who’s in love” with them. Not my words.

MORE AWESOME ACTION FOR CAPT. AWESOME ON ‘CHUCK’
The spy world is a dangerous place, and after Awesome and Ellie welcomed baby Clara this season, I got a flood of emails asking if this was the end of the new parents’ spy adventures. Well, for the most part it was — at least in regards to this season, when they resided primarily in Babyville. But things are about to change…

“It was really tricky because the first time Awesome got into the spy world, it was a little self-centered to be honest. You know, married life does have its lulls. He wanted to spice things up a little bit and get that adrenaline rush,” Ryan McPartlin says. “If he did that now with a baby, it would be really selfish. So [the writers] had to be really careful bringing us into the spy world and making it out of necessity rather than desire.” Fans can assume that “necessity” has something to do with Pa Bartowski’s laptop of secrets, which Ellie has found herself engrossed with since she got her hands on it. But McPartlin eased any fears a bit, saying that the audience will be “relieved and happy to see what comes of it.” But not before Awesome and Ellie get to have a little fun.

“I think the audience still likes to relate to people who are thrown in there, who have no business being there. Otherwise, you jut have Alias. Where does it go? Whereas when we get in there, everything is haphazard,” he says, laughing.

SIDE DISHES

I’d love some Drop Dead Diva! — Margo
Then you’ll love this. Sharon Lawrence and Faith Prince will be reprising their roles as Deb and Jane’s mom, respectively, in episode 7 of next season, titled “Mothers’ Day.” But prepare to see them like we’ve never seen them before: singing “Lean On Me” with Brooke Elliott! “Jane’s got to help both moms with [separate] legal issues, and they’re fighting over her attention. She’s being torn between both mothers,” creator Josh Berman tells EW exclusively. “Then on top of that, we learn something new about her relationship with Grayson in this episode. It’s a juicy episode.” Juicy, indeed! (We’ve got tons more Diva scoop here.)

Smallville! Will we finally get to see Tom Welling in the “suit”? There are rumors that they have filmed substantial scenes of him in the tights for the last minutes of the series. — Wade
That would be a huge spoiler, of course, and you can understand why Smallville is locking its doors as we move closer to the finale. But I will, however, point you to a little something exec producer Brian Peterson told me last week about the finale: “At the heart of [every episode] is a very important step in Clark’s journey,” he said. “[So] while the finale wraps up storylines with the other characters, it is very, very much about Clark and his big moment of transformation.” Catch that? Key word: transformation.

Blair Waldorf needs a devil redeemed, not a donut. Is there any good Chuck/Blair stuff coming up on Gossip Girl? — Janey
And your reward is such: Of course there are great Chair moments coming up! Producers have certainly heard your cries, and all I’ll say is that you should not count anyone out of the running for Blair’s heart. On that note, can everyone please give Josh Schwartz his Twitter back? [Also, CONGRATULATIONS. You are the winner of this week's Best Question award for one of the best characterizations of Dan Humphrey I've ever read.]

Can you tell us anything about Blair on Gossip Girl and the many men in her life? She’s got her pauper, her prince and her king — how will she ever choose?! I’m really rooting for Chuck and Blair to get back together eventually. Can you tell us if the last five episodes have some drama for them? — Leslie
I don’t know how she’ll choose, but I do know that easier choices have been made by entire branches of the U.S. government. Kidding. But in all seriousness, there is definitely drama to be had, and I hear there’s more than you can handle in the two-part finale, which takes place over one event-filled night in the Gossip-verse (but airs over two weeks for us).

No Nikita? Please, something for the Agents! — Sarah
April 7. Don’t. Miss. This. Episode. I can’t tell you why, though, because I was asked not to reveal the big ending with [spoiler] and [spoiler] [spoiler] [spoiler]. P.S. – LOVE the new nickname — “Agents”!

Can you tell me when we get to see more Boyd and Ava? They are my new favorite relationship on Justified. — Ellyn
As they should be! Boyd Crowder — suddenly a gentleman? What’s not to love about that. Unfortunately, the last few episodes hold tough times for this totally captivating odd couple, says exec producer Graham Yost. “Raylan finds it very difficult to change, [but] Boyd has found it impossible. I think Ava is right there as well. Our feeling was that she didn’t marry Bowman because he was a football star. We think she didn’t mind being in the criminal life,” he says. “That was one of our goals of season 2 — to play this flirting, coming together, coming apart between them two. That will have repercussions — and they wont all be good.”

Is Leonard Nimoy ever coming back to Fringe? — James
I get this question pretty much every week. So I recently posed it verbatim to exec producers Jeff Pinkner and Joel H. Wyman. “Leonard is going to play — sorry to tease this — but Leonard is going to play an unexpected role in the show,” Pinkner said. Wyman agreed coyly, “Right.” These two are geniuses … but they also make my brain hurt.

Any word on my fave summer show Rizzoli and Isles? — Aly
The show is currently casting an incredibly important part — a hunky, 30-something mechanic who used to crush on Jane but now has his eyes set on Maura. But something about how the tale ends tells me the role won’t be recurring…

On House, how does Thirteen still have a job if she’s been in prison? She can’t still be a doctor, right? — Mary
Your question is answered in Thirteen’s big return episode next Monday. Olivia Wilde teases, “He definitely does her a favor, and that proves to her how valuable she is on the team.”

We know that House knows Thirteen’s secret by the end of next week. Does everyone else find out, too? — Claire

Of course they do. But it’s their reactions you should be asking me about. “She ends up really needing the help of one of them [but] in order to get that help, she has to tell him what happened,” Wilde says. “I think her relationships with them have changed.”

It’s Always Sunny! Info always comes out around this time. — Drew
Right you are. But you know what I’m glad doesn’t (typically) come around this time, Drew? Storms. Horrible storms. But too bad for Philly, there’s one headed their way. “We have an episode next season called ‘Storm of the Century,’ in which a horrible storm hits Philly, and things escalate. We’re not entirely sure this storm doesn’t mean the apocalypse is coming,” star Glenn Howerton tells EW. “Some of our characters are a little concerned what Mayans believed, and there’s a little 2012 action.”

Dear Sandra, Any word on a different network picking up The Cape? Or a possible continuation in comic book form? A Carnival of Crime spin off? I thought the series was gelling nicely and am sad that we could be left hanging after only 10 eps! Any spoilers on what would have been? — Ina
Well, the series is still officially part of NBC because there is no official word on its fate. That said — and considering the finale aired online only — there’s a safe assumption that can be made. Also a safe assumption? Closure. There was a definite plan for the series, and it will become public somehow, I’m told. The question is how.

I need some Warehouse 13 info — is Myka coming back? I hate waiting a whole year for a summer show to return. — Nathan C.
Waits are painful but usually worth it — and I hear yours might be, too. Though the powers that be are still quite mum on a return for Myka and would not confirm her appearance in the first episode of the third season (as listed on IMDB), a “you’ll see” is always better than a “no.” Right?

I’d love some Raising Hope. It’d make the wait so much easier! — R.C.
The April 26 episode, called “Everybody Flirts … Sometimes,” should probably be called “Burt Bigalow Male Gigolo,” as it explores the the fine art of flirting. Turns out it’s so much fun, everyone gives it a try! But let’s just say that it works out better for some family members than others.

Nurse Jackie, please!!! — Grace
Next week, Kyle XY alum Jaimie Alexander begins her recurring role as Kevin’s flighty sister, Tunie, who comes into the family’s life post-break-up and finds herself sticking around longer than Jackie anticipated. But as unpredictable as she seems, she doesn’t seem half as much trouble as the other new face who appears in Jackie’s life in this episode, whose sole purpose is to cause a lot of trouble in Jackie’s kinda-quest for sobriety.

Any news on the crossover ep of Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: LA? — Noah
Deputy D.A. Jonah Dekker (Terrence Howard) will go toe-to-toe in court with newly re-instated Casey Novak (Diane Neal). But with a lot on the line — his cousin is on trial for rape — Dekker prepares for anything Novak throws at him. Well, almost anything. When the case takes a truly surprising turn, everything ruthless you remember about Novak comes roaring back, and at one point, you’re probably going to completely hate that you love having her back.

Anything on my favorite CBS show, which is anything that doesn’t mention Charlie Sheen? — Kris
Will some Mike & Molly work? In an upcoming episode, Molly will learn why you don’t take a hungry man to church. In related scoop, a very important word will be uttered on a CBS show before the end of the season: “Twins.”

    Can’t wait to see more of Cas and the boys – especially Cas and Dean together. Have missed Misha and Cas desperately in this Season of Sam.

    • Ellie

      I’m actually kind of glad that they’re focusing more on Sam this season, I felt like we didn’t see enough of him in s4 and s5.

      • Ashu

        Do you realize what this does to the hsrtoiy and towns surrounding the mountain? History is stripped away and towns are prone to toxic waste (causes people to have cancer and poisonings) and not to mention the flooding of towns due to stripping of the mountain tops. Shame on you who think this is a good idea

    • Ferniesfreckles

      That comment sounds like something Balzathar would say to Castiel.

    • Stacy

      I agree I love Cas and Dean together! I think I enjoy them together more than Dean and Sam and I love Sam but I think the chemistry between Dean and Cas is better!

    • AB

      I agree. Not enough Cas. The dynamic with him added is great.

    • gia

      Yes, I agree on missing Cas this season, but to say that Dean and Cas are better than Dean and Sammy? Never! :-).

      • Storm

        I like Supernatural and Castiel is a good guy along with dean and sam. goooooooo guys!!!

    • Ella

      Castiel is actually the reason why I stopped watching SN. I couldn´t stand him, how he always took attention from Sam.

      • (0_0)

        Because everything has to revolve around Sam, is that it?

        What’s so great about Sam that people have to be so loyal to him? He constantly changes the parameters of what he wants from you, wants to be in charge and blames you if things fail.

      • TG21

        I see the Sam haters are out. The show is about Sam and Dean, NOT Cas and Dean. I don’t see this “chemistry” the Cas lovers want to see. I’d be glad if we never saw Cas again. And why does Cas with his super improved special angel powers and all those heavenly weapons need Sam and Dean to kill Fate. Needs someone else to do the dirty work again?

    • Carrie

      I agree. I like the way they all play off of each other. It’s always fun to watch. It seems like Cas has too much on his hands right now, though.

      • TG21

        Too much on his hands? That’s because Cas is not too bright. Every other angel can function just fine on Earth but Cas, who lived among humans, still has rusty people skills. Jeeze, a few months on the surface and even Lucifer was able to make a Luke Skywalker joke after spending how many thousands of hell years in his cage. Poor Cas – he just can’t keep up. I hope the fate of Heaven doesn’t rest on his shoulders.

      • cindy

        Lucifer has always been regarded as worldly. Perhaps his cage in hell has Internet and satellite tv.

    • Kelly

      Actually I wouldn’t call it the Season of Sam. More the season of Campbells/Ben/Lisa, ie the storylines that go nowhere.

    • Storm

      Im addicted to Supernatural, i like so much the Winchester guys so handsome.

  • Bets

    Oh, thank you for the Chuck and Blair news!!!!!! I’m so excited for them!

    • Ada

      Me too! Me too!!! I hope Chuck is for real this time though. I’m starting to hate him for the way he treats her.

  • meg

    Awesome! I needed some Chuck and Blair news to start my day! Chuck and Blair belong together! And ,yes, Josh, you can have your twitter back;)

  • Sandra

    I’m a Chuck and Blair fan, and these are the best news I’ve heard in a long time! I’m so happy. Thank you Sandra.

  • Alyssa

    Finally you gave a place for Chuck and Blair.you don’t know how much fans were frustrated the lack of Chuck and Blair news..I can watch the next 5 episodes now.I don’t need to skip.

  • TK

    I love donuts! Dan and Blair are adorable.

    “I don’t know how she’ll choose, but I do know that easier choices have been made by entire branches of the U.S. government. Kidding. But in all seriousness, there is definitely drama to be had, and I hear there’s more than you can handle in the two-part finale, which takes place over one event-filled night in the Gossip-verse (but airs over two weeks for us).”

    Wedding I guess. Blair as a runaway bride.

    • Lauren

      I was thinking the same thing. I love donuts! I really like Dan and Blair and hope they continue with this storyline. Their banter is so fun to watch.

      • Mexico

        Pistols on to the arm of the sofa about parallel, just did 10 TGU find them very slow and doeitus. I’ll have to check form guide for DUs- I skipped very , very fast! I guess some where doubles:0 -3.30 Prsssups taking hands off at bottom- mad hard! was reduced to knees for last 3 sets to maintain form and not push hips then arms 8.00, Squats well beyond parallel touching ankles up to 75 in a oner then short rest and pumped the rest out 2.48. Had a rest between skips and press ups but straight from PUs to Squats hard that. Would like to see more scores up here as I prefer Crossfit endurance to the main Crossfit but need more scores to compare becuase that’s the motivating factor!

    • Cara

      i love donuts too…even though i thing chuck is more of a donut than dan…but whatevs

  • BLM

    Blair described Dan as a donut in this season’s premiere, so reader Janey didn’t come up with that all by herself. Queen B is the best and I’m excited to see what’s in store for her!

  • Carrie

    Go Chair!!!!! I have been super bored with GG for the last few episodes and need some CHair back in my life. Great news, Sandra!

  • LH

    CHAIR!!! CHAIR!!! CHAIR!!! Happy Days are FINALLY here again…Doing the CB Happy Dance!!!!

    • Mahi

      P.S. If you too are sneaking a peak, how about leanvig some love for this beautiful couple while your at it! and check out Josh Jerrid’s behind the scenes shots go now!! check it here a0☞a0Josh’s Blog

  • Jennifer Shahan

    CASEY. Yes. Nothing has been the same since they got rid of her. I wish she was back for good. Or Alex.

  • Kim

    If Chuck and Blair get back together I will stop watching Gossip Girl for good.

    Chair is the worst TV couple I have ever seen. Chuck is an emotionally abusive, manipulative creep, and has treated Blair terribly.

    Meanwhile, Dan and Blair have had the most healthy, mature and adult relationship that this show has ever had. Dan has all the makings of a good boyfriend and a real man. Sorry all you Chuck stans can’t see it.

    • Ty

      100% agree. i dont know why people like chair so much, all they do is sabotage and plot against each other

    • veronique

      I completely agree with you. Chuck has been so horrible to Blair and he’s always hurting her in some way. I used to be a big Chair fan but I really like Dair and I also feel that Dan will be good to Blair and treat her how she deserves to be treated, which is with unconditional love.

    • Alexandra

      UGH I completely agree. I’ve been the first one rooting for Dair since the very beginning of season 1. Chuck is a terrible human being and Blair needs to get as far away from him as she possibly can. I will be done with this show if they ruin the great relationship they’ve built with Dan and Blair.

      • Burninlove

        Blair and Chuck, Chuck and Blair!

    • Burninlove

      YIPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE CHUCK AND BLAIR!!!!

    • Cara

      I think i will stop too…i mean what else can they possibly do with this couple. They were great in the past, but now i just don’t see the same chemistry, sorry :/

  • Carol

    Chuck is so annoying and always makes Blair feel like a trash!

    I want Dair \o/

    • Cara

      well some people like to watch guys treat girls like trash..hence all the chair spammers…i dunno though

    • Storm

      I like Serena, so cool….:)

  • Tammy

    Sooo happy for the Chuck and blair news.

    • Burninlove

      WAHOOOOO! Blair and Chuck, Chuck and Blair!

  • Esta

    Sounds like the Fringe guys were talking about the William Bell/Olivia twist. Do you even watch the show?

    • Orac

      They’re talking about Leonard Nimoy returning to play the baby of Peter and Fauxlivia, returning from the future. I’m amazed you haven’t put the pieces together. Do you even watch the show? *snicker*

  • Maria

    Thanks for the great Chuck and Blair news! So excited for good Chuck/Blair moments coming up! YAY

    • Sahil
