‘SUPERNATURAL’: LESS ANGST NEXT SEASON?
Before you get in a tizzy, there’s no official word on an eighth season of Supernatural. But since I’m a positive thinker by nature, when I got a chance to chat with executive producer Bob Singer last week, I asked what his vision would be for the next season if the show was lucky enough to nail one down. The answer, he said, will obviously be largely influenced by where we leave off this season. “I think you’ll see coming up that Sam’s Lucifer problem certainly lessens,” he said. “That carried a lot water this year. Jared really had the brunt of the emotional story. And I think going into next year — and, God, we haven’t talked about this — but just in my opinion, I think we’d be well served to get back to where this whole thing started — as we used to say, saving people and killing things.”

Much of the show’s current season has been centered — with only small deviations — on the leviathan storyline that was introduced at the beginning of the season. Along the way, that storyline has given birth to smaller emotional arcs for the characters, particularly with regards to Sam’s broken noodle and a string of heart-wrenching deaths. “[I’d like to] make it a good, kinda wild western yarn and try to leave the angst behind,” Singer said. “I mean, there’s always going to be angst on this show, but I think we’ve kinda wrung it out a lot this year. So we might lighten it up a tad next year.”

And what of word on the chances of another season? Singer said that while “indications are that we will get picked up…we kind of leave options for ourselves [story-wise]. It would be nice if we heard sooner than later.”

SIDE DISHES

Any scoop on Game of Thrones that I HAVEN’T read yet? — Russell
Well, I’m not sure what to say. I have no idea what you’ve read, dude! But luckily, James Hibberd, EW’s resident GoT expert, was nice enough to file this report about the first two episodes: “First, rest assured, the first two episodes hit the ground running. The writers amazingly stitch together NINE very different major narrative locations while still making Thrones feel like one cohesive TV show. There’s also more dry humor this season, and the new characters really pop (particularly Stephen Dillane as Stannis and Gemma Whelan as Theon’s sister).

“Here’s a few little teases that haven’t been widely reported: Littlefinger tries to threaten Cersei (and you can guess how that goes for him), Joffrey orders his most horrific execution yet, and somebody discovers Arya’s secret identity.” Thanks, James.

We good, Russ?

Any spoilers about Juliette in Grimm? — Kriya
Well, I’ll tell you this: You’re definitely going to see a lot more of her. Last time we saw Juliette she had been kidnapped, and she let Nick know she wasn’t sure she could keep going with this lifestyle. In episode 16, which airs in early April, Nick is going to take his lovely lady on a romantic weekend in hopes of reconciling with her and escaping work — but as you might guess, the trip ends up being anything but the getaway he was hoping for. (And Juliette might even walk away with a little more insight into Nick’s lifestyle!) Meanwhile, Grimm itself returns a week from today with all new episodes. (Also, you heard the great news, right!?)

Sandra, like you, I’m totally a Robin-Barney shipper, but I am loving Quinn on HIMYM too. I find that she and Barney actually make more sense. But I’m wondering what it’s going to be like when Quinn and Robin finally talk about [Robin’s] past with Barney. Any chance we’ll be seeing that soon? — Ange
Perhaps. But it’s something Becki Newton (Quinn) would like to see! “I think it remains to be seen. I think it’ll be an interesting development if Quinn and Robin do sort of face off,” she says. “I have to believe Quinn is going to learn about Robin and Barney’s past and it should be an interesting development when the two women confront each other about it.” Agreed!

COMMUNITY

Looks like people are saying Community might be sticking around for another season after the ratings last week. Pop, pop! Any scoop to celebrate? — Thomas
The spirit of Chuck will be felt strongly in the next new episode, when Subway comes to Greendale. Still unhappy with their sub-shop snub, Shirley and Pierce enlist the help of Britta to help them fight the corporate takeover — with one small complication: Britta falls in love with Subway. Oh, did I not mention Subway is a man, too?

90210 was SO sad this week! Any chance you have some scoop to make me feel better? — Emily
No. But I have some exclusive photos that might depress you more! Keep watching this space today. UPDATE: Here you go. Also, look whose back after a few episodes away! Ugh. This is going to be a tear-jerker! (See it this Wednesday on the CW!)
