Do you know the sex of B&B’s BB on Bones?  — Tracy
What clever use of the alphabet. But no, I don’t know. But Michaela Conlin does, and she claims the big answer will come in episode 2 of this season. Meanwhile, Conlin dishes that Angela and Bones will have plenty to talk about, considering Angela just had a baby and is in the process of trying to figure out how to be a working mom. The one saving grace? “I heard there’s a full-time daycare in the Jeffersonian,” she says.

Nikita scoopage would be appreciated. I’m counting the days!! — Nevaeh
We’re going to meet a blast from Michael’s past in episode 5. We learn via flashback that she’s smart, sensitive, sexy, and…the first lady of a nation whose president Michael is tasked with canceling. I never said it was simple…

Parenthood! The wait is unbearable. — Jenna
Looks like Bones won’t be the only preggo giving birth before the new year. (ICYMI: Hart Hanson has said that if his star’s real baby cooperates, they’ll have six episodes before the birth.) Kristina (Monica Potter) is also in full bloom and scheduled to pop in the fifth episode of the season. The twist? Adam is MIA for most of the big day, giving Crosby an opportunity to step up. Meanwhile, Adam is busy looking like he’s a cast member from Step Up. More on that later.

Thanks for the news on Grey’s Anatomy’s all-boys episode. Sounds delicious. ;) My only question is, these “special episodes” always have a big exit or a major twist — will there be one in this episode? — Shayna
I’d be willing to bet on yes. Especially since Shonda Rhimes told EW’s Tanner Stransky that this one has been in the works for a while. “We have a list of things we’ve always wanted to do, and you wait until you have the right way to tell a story or the right idea to tell a story or tell it the way you need to tell it, and this year, we have the right idea”

Anything on Parks and Recreation? Ron/Tammy scoop, perhaps? — Jeff
While I do not doubt the power of Ron and Tammy episodes, I’m more excited about episode 4. I’m going to take a huge leap and call it one of my favorite episodes of the season already. Why? Because it combines two things that could not be more contradicting (aka: pure television magic): Ron Swanson as a scout leader.

All Modern Family scoop will be rewarded with a personal appearance by Fizbo (well, me dressed as Fizbo) at your next birthday party!! (And happy belated birthday!! J) — Jen
Um, terrifying. How about, you promise NOT to do that, and I’ll tell you what I know. Rather, what Ariel Winter knows. Apparently, when we return to the house of Dunphy, we’ll find out that Alex has had some major changes in her life. Most notable? She’s sitting at the cool table! “She starts sitting with Haley at the cool table in high school. It’s so weird for me to say high school because I’m like, ‘Ah!'” she said. “[And] Alex might have a boyfriend — and have crushes on boys while she has a boyfriend.” Sounds like Alex might be more like Haley than we all thought. Now, remember: NO clowns.

Is Ryan Rottman’s character going to be a love interest for Teddy on 90210? — Julia
Could be. The casting intel did call for an actor who was “comfortable in romantic situations with another man.” So at least we know it’s a definite possibility, but I’d hesitate to go there right away. Word has it he will share scenes with not only Teddy, but Silver and guest star Brandy, who is guesting as a young politician. And as I mentioned in the casting announcement, Rottman’s character is a politically-active gay marriage advocate. Connect the dots how you will!

Any good Bill/Sookie scenes coming up? ~ Chris
All I can say is that you will like the scene near the beginning of Sunday’s episode very very much. Like, VERY much. And to bookend your joy, there’s a moment at the end where Sookie makes a grand gesture of — what some could say — are lingering feelings. Others might just say girl likes drama!

What ever happened to the plans to bring back Michael Trucco as Robin’s love interest on HIMYM? I heard that Kal Penn’s character is now a love interest? — Abby
You’re a sharp one! I posed the same question to Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, noticing that Penn’s character description seemed to dismiss the fact that Trucco’s character from last season was scheduled to re-appear. But I also seemed to forget that he’s also on Fairly Legal. “The funny thing is Michael Trucco, his series got picked up for another season. So we had to veer away from that even though we like Michael a lot,” Thomas told me. “Ultimately, it’s led us in a new direction.” Penn’s character is slated to appear some time in the first six episodes.

This season of Breaking Bad is amazing! Scoop PLEASE!! — Ryan
When EW last caught up with R.J. Mitte, who plays Walt Jr., he was just as thrilled with the season as you are. And he says it’s going to get even better, particularly in episode 9 (airing Sept. 11) when, he says, “Bryan [Cranston] and I have this amazing scene together. It’s wonderful. It hits home and things are said,” he says. Tears? You bet.

I’m afraid to ask, but anything on Glee? — Maria
Why are you afraid?! Fear not. Yes, there was a lot of drama this summer, but how about we all move on and focus on the show, the characters, and the pure corniness? Clear eyes, full hearts…oops, wrong show. Let’s just move past the ugly and talk about what’s next. Or in this case, what could be next. Max Adler reports that even though Karofsky is a senior, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll see him walk across the stage. “Karofsky could certainly flunk and be a 5th-year senior.” Meanwhile, ever wanted to hear Josh Sussman (Jacob) sing? Me neither. But he says though he doesn’t sing in the first episode, “I’m practicing.”

    Jax is gonna take over the club soon. I bet by the end of the season.

    Where is Kozick!? (sp?)

    • Gretchen

      I believe Kozick is part of the club this season – he has tweeted about filming scenes. The show has a 7 season arc, so I’m assuming he wont take over til the end…

      • Lisa S

        Where are the FRINGE spoilers? All this clown did was ramble about stuff we already know.

  • CM

    Thanks for the Castle and Bones scoops, and as for Bones, everyone already said that Booth and Brennan are having a baby girl. It’s been out for at least a month now.

    • Liz

      It will probably be a girl. I hope they name her Christine, like Bones’s mom.

      • PJL

        I don’t know about that. David B tweeted a few weeks ago that Booth’s new favorite color is blue.

  • anonymous

    The FRINGE finale was NOT ridiculous.

    • Mark

      “ridiculously awesome”… read carefully :)

    • MJ

      I don’t think she meant to say the finale was ridiculous. Saying it’s “ridicuclously awesome” is just an expression, as in it’s ridiculous how awesone it is, you know? It’s like saying it’s too good to be truth.

  • #1 SOA fan

    Holy hell I can’t wait for SOA to come back!! Jax is so damn fine mmmm!! And 90 minutes…YES!!!!

  • daisy

    Hi Sandra! Just wanted to let you know that R.J. Mitte plays Walt Jr., not Hank Jr. on Breaking Bad. I don’t mean to be one of *those* people, but I thought you might want to know! Thanks for all the great scoop!

    • Sandra Gonzalez

      How embarrassing! Thank you, Daisy! :)

  • CM

    Thanks for the Castle and Bones scoops, and as for Bones, everyone already said that Booth and Brennan are having a baby girl. It’s been out for at least a month now. Keep your eyes and ears open. :)


    Kenny Johnson that plays Kozik got a role on Prime Suspect. I think I read somewhere that he would be in a few epi of SOA new season and that he would be welcomed back if PS was cancelled

  • Mike

    ha a b&w community episode would be awesome

    • Ames

      A film noir murder mystery. Abed would love that.

  • Jillian

    I’m very curious to see the Castle premiere. Laurie Zacks makes it wound like that the premiere will be so awesome and it will be very optimistic for Castle and Beckett shippers…but Castle is also supposed to get a love interest this season and they aren’t going deal with the “I love you” until midseason…so who knows?

  • Laura

    Can’t wait for the Castle premiere- hope it lives up to some very high expectations!

  • Mark

    I hope we would get more Fringe set photos. They are REALLY keeping things under wrap this season. I need to know more! *spoilers junkie*

    • Ruby

      Agreed! Love Fringe!

    • Jenny

      No doubt. Saw that they changed the title of the first episode today. Sept. 23rd can’t get here soon enough!

  • Amanda

    Ahh I can’t wait for Parks & Rec!

  • Dadslife

    So, I got to thinking about Peter in a different context. Could it be he existed only in the minds of the Fringe characters ala Wilfred?

  • tahina

    Thanks for Castle and The Closer scoops, love those shows. Wonder where they will go with Brenda Leigh, will she get fired, comes in Capt Raynor? Dont want o hate Mary McDonell’s character.

    • Ryan

      Yeah I am not really a Closer fan but my folks are. I watch the previews and it shocks me that they are going to spin Raydor off onto her own show leading the old team. Just in the recent previews she comes off as a bitch, and my parents say they hate her

    • Ames

      I have realized that I’m not ready for The Closer to end. I’m a little embarassed for loving a tv show so much, but I just want the gang to stay together.

  • alr

    So happy that SOA is getting attention! It is long overdue!
