SIDE DISHES
I heard that Danielle Panabaker is going to guest  on an episode of Bones as an agent assigned to work with Sweets. Can you tell us more about it, and what is going on with Sweets in that episode? — Rex
I can’t tell you more about it — but executive producer Stephen Nathan can! “Danielle appears in one of our four floating episodes. She and Sweets are assigned to a case together while Daisy is out of town and Booth is busy with other work. What begins as a wary and sometimes hostile relationship develops into something that surprises both of them. Gunplay is involved.“

Hey! How come every time I ask a question, I get squat! But a week later, someone will ask something about the same show and get an answer. I’m trying not to take this personally, Sandra. Let’s make nice. How about some Suits scoop? — Paige D.
It’s your lucky week, Paige! Because how about news on a Suits/Smash crossover! Well, kinda. I’m told Smash actor Michael Cristofer (who plays Eileen’s oft-talked-about-but-hardly-seen hubby, Jerry) has been booked to play Paul Porter, an old-school partner at the firm whose loyalty may lie with Daniel Hardman (guest star David Constabile). He appears in the second episode when his character is assigned to work with Harvey on a case — and let’s just say it’s not necessarily a match made in heaven.

It’s been a while since we got something on The Middle. — Corey
Well, here’s what I can tell you: I had my doubts about Whoopi Goldberg joining Glee as Carmen Tibideaux, a New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts professor who’s in charge of Kurt and Rachel’s NYADA auditions, but after checking out the May 2 episode of The Middle, I have fewer reservations. She guests as a guidance counselor who sees a lot of herself in Sue — braces included — and tries to encourage the youngest Heck female to embrace her uniqueness. The result is hilarious (prepare to meet Sue’s alter ego!) and — thanks to Goldberg’s turn as the lovable character — really heart-warming.

Archer! — Jason
Are you just screaming the title? Or was that a scoop request? I’m going to go ahead and assume the latter. While season 3 just wrapped up in March, Aisha Tyler, who voices Lana, is wasting no time thinking up ideas for the show’s return (for which no premiere date has been announced yet). “I’m not exactly advocating for Lana and Sterling to get back together. I don’t want them to get back together,” she says. And what she IS hoping for? A little “fallout” from Lana’s naked time in the last episode. “You can’t run around your workplace naked and not have some kind of repercussions — at least some pictures on Twitter or something.” We’re sure Archer wouldn’t argue with that.

TYLER-BLACKBURN

I wouldn’t argue with some Pretty Little Liars scoop. — Kim
I see what you’re doing there. ‘Oh, spoils! Those old things? I suppose you can give me some. Yawn.’ Your reverse psychology won’t work on me, ma’am! Well, I guess it actually will. But only because Tyler Blackburn was kind enough to fill me in on the action we’ll be seeing in season 3. “Obviously [Caleb’s] recently been enlightened on what has been going on for the last two seasons, and I think it made him more concerned about Hannah,” he said at the Avengers premiere. “The secrets never stop and he is a little shaken by his new-found knowledge, so he is going to come into season 3 way more cautious and leary of Hannah. I think their relationship will be put to the test.” And as you might recall, there was a bit of a mixed reaction to the reveal of “A,” but Blackburn says that now that Mona’s secret is out, he only sees it getting better from here. “I think season 3 will be really good from what I have seen. I don’t think anybody’s going to be disappointed with where we are taking the show,” he says. “It’s [still] a combination of both — some comes from the books and some of it is original storylines. To keep it fresh and new, they want to do some of their [own] things. Otherwise everything would be predictable for people who read the books. But the books also have such a following that they don’t want to veer too far from them either and they want to stay true to that.”

I don’t think I’ve ever seen you do something on Law & Order: SVU. So in the off-chance you don’t have something on them. Maybe Scandal? I’m loving that! — Grace
I’ll do you one better: Some intel on the upcoming L&O:SVU episode “Justice Denied,” which guest stars Guillermo Diaz of Scandal! He plays convicted rapist and killer Omar Pena, an inmate who continues to argue his innocence years into his life sentence. While it may seem like your average could-be-the-wrong-guy case, I can tell you that the outcome will lead to a big professional change for Haden (Harry Connick Jr.) — and not to mention some big changes for him and Olivia (Mariska Hargitay).

I LOVED Scandal, especially the stuff with Olivia and the President! Please tell me about what’s coming up with those two. — Helen
The president’s right-hand man (Jeff Perry) isn’t the only person at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue who knows about the Olivia-Prez saga…

Thank you for your chat with Tim Matheson of Hart of Dixie! I love that show. I’d love any scoop! — Becca
We’ve seen hints of a bridge being built between Brick (Matheson) and Zoe (Rachel Bilson), and Matheson says we’ll continue to see Brick develop a soft spot for the young doc. “I think that what I’ve discovered is that there’s a part of Brick that is beginning to feel protective of Zoe, and having paternal feelings toward her, which he tries not to deal with,” he says. “It’s an interesting development for me. I think if you’re playing a villain or an antagonist, you have to step on those feelings to do the things you’re doing. But for me, those feelings are being allowed to come out. But I do like being on obstacle for her. I hope to do many, many episodes where I can be a thorn in her side.”

Hey #HurricaneGonzalez how about some scoop on Psych? — @JoeMenez24
Why you’re asking my unborn/unconcieved child (who I announced on Twitter would be named “Hurricane”) for scoop, I’m not sure. But I can tell you that one of the first episodes of season 7 will find Shawn and Gus on a search for a great legend — Big Foot. Sorta. That’s all I can share for now! Now, let’s talk about how great that finale was…

How come no one is freaking out about Lucy being back on Raising Hope?! Scoop please! — Brandi
There’s an explanation. Trust me. It’s bats–t crazy, but there is one. Additionally, while I’m utterly depressed that the finale is already upon us, I can tell you the last episode has surprises galore. Near arrests, a resurrection, a death — oh, and you will cry. Promise. Thank God Fox stopped procrasturbating and finally renewed this show for another season!

PARKS-REC

Sandra, I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but Parks and Rec is coming back. Scoop me! — Adam
All the talk thus far has centered around Leslie’s possible new job as city councilwoman, but in the first episode back, it’s Ron who is approached about a brand new position. Meanwhile, Chris realizes some of the changes that would be afoot should Leslie lose her bid for election — and they literally leave him stunned.

Castle scoop please! I’ll take anything. — Veronica
Excited about Adam Baldwin’s guest spot on Monday? You should be. I’m told that we won’t be disappointed — especially my fellow Browncoats.
