SIDE DISHES

PLEASE tell me there’s something in store for Abby this season on NCIS. There wasn’t nearly enough of her last season. — Lorie
If that’s how you feel, good news! According to Pauley Perrette, who we caught up with at this week’s Thirst Project gala, this season will not only see returns from Abby’s brother and bestie (played by Meredith Eaton), but it will also take us deeper into her life beyond NCIS. “The only thing I do know in general [about the season] is we’re going to go a little bit more into Abby’s life more. People have been asking for it for a long time,” she says.

Is ANYONE out there making even a hint of a thought that someone *might* be considering trying to save The Secret Circle?  It’s been over a month since we got word it was being taken from us… If you don’t have any good news for me on Secret Circle, could you maybe at least offer some seriously juicy spoilers for Teen Wolf so I’ll have *something* spooky to look forward to? — Lyssandri
Wish I had better news for you, love. Truth is, it’s not likely TSC will find a home — especially considering the news that Chris Zylka is joining FX’s American Horror Story. On the positive side, I do have some Teen Wolf scoop for you, and it’s spooky — just how you ordered. As we saw this week, Jackson turned out to be the kanima, but Crystal Reed (who plays Allison) tells me the trouble really starts for the teen when he starts to put the pieces together for himself. And the audience, she says, will “see how it psychologically affects him.” Meanwhile, something will rock Allison’s family life in the next two episodes, introducing an Allison we’ve never seen before. “People don’t recognize her anymore or — she becomes a little psycho,” she says. “But she’s doing it for justice. That’s her rationale.”

I know you can’t say who bites it on Covert Affairs. But got any other good scoop? — Angie
Oded Fehr will be back! “He’ll be in the summer season and we’ll see him a lot in the fall season as well,” reveals executive producer Chris Ord. Meanwhile, I urge you to mark July 10 on your calendars. This is a premiere that is NOT to be missed.

I’m so excited Criminal Minds is going to Comic-Con. Any idea what Reid will be up to this season? — Alex
Out of the gate, Reid will have at least one new thing to deal with: the arrival of linguistics expert Alex Blake (new cast member Jeanne Tripplehorn), who he formerly knew through his work at Georgetown. “I think she was a professor…[and] he used to lecture in her classroom,” Matthew Gray Gubler told us at the premiere of Amazing Spider-Man last night. Beyond that, he’s not sure. But one thing he is sure of? The pair’s history is purely platonic. “No, I don’t think they’re going to go there,” he says of a possible romantic history being revealed. “[But] I wouldn’t mind it because I love her. I totally have a crush on her.”

Now that Matthew has a deal, any chance we’ll see Reid get a REAL storyline this season? — Amaya
Gube would certainly love to see it — especially if it brings a little closure to certain open-ended aspects of Dr. Reid. “A lot of things with Reed get left open-ended,” he said. “[The writers] start stories and then never finish them with Reid for some reason. They have ADD about him. They have A.D.REID — I’ll be here all week.”

Any Criminal Minds scoop? — Bryan
Criminal Minds fans, today is your day! (A triple scoop!) And the finale piece today comes from Kirsten Vangsness, who tells me she wants to see Garcia playing the field this season. “I’m hoping [for] a lot of dates — a lot of dates. Men. Women. Men and women — I don’t know. Your guess is as good as mine. But that’s my hope.” Mine, too!!

SANDRA! I need some Mark and Sarah scoop! And please tell me this Ray Romano thing is just a joke. — Nicki
Yes, we were just kidding — NO! It’s happening. But Jason Ritter is being a good sport about it all. “I’m excited about that. Any conflict is always good. So I’m excited to see what they’re going to come up with. I wish him luck… but not too much luck,” he jokes. More seriously, he ponders that perhaps an older guy might be just what Sarah needs. “This is all guesswork, because I haven’t read one script, [but] the idea is, here is [a] man who is not looking to start a whole new life. She knows that my character is looking at children one day, and things like that. So I think it will be interesting — it will point out the differences and highlight what we’ve maybe been ignoring a little bit.”

This wait for White Collar is PAINFUL! Help me out here! — Jenna
I bet it’s not as painful as what happens to Neal in the second episode. Bang!

I’d LOVE some Mer/Der scoop! — Deborah J.
Will you take word on April and Jackson? Yes? Thanks; you’re a peach! When we caught up with Sarah Drew earlier this week, the actress revealed that the gang heads back to work in about two weeks, but she’s still not sure what state we’ll find the pair — especially in light of all fallout we’ll see from the plane crash. “I do think she is a big enough person to put her own personal trauma aside and rally for the larger group,” she says. “[But] I hope that [April and Jackson] will just remain very dear friends, regardless of where their relationship takes them. But I don’t know — it could be a very interesting love story. But it could also be a complicated one.”

We are [close to] the new season of Breaking Bad! Got any scoop on it? Seriously, I’ll take anything. — MJ
My reaction to the first episode: “Oh, s–t.” More specifically, in the first episode back, let’s just say Gus’ spirit is definitely felt — and it may screw Walter over. Make sure you send along more questions on the new season!

NOOOOO!!! I’m going to miss B.J. Novak on The Office. No scoop needed, I just wanted to vent. — Hazel
Then consider this a bonus: Casting intel indicates that the show is on the search for a new series regular named “Pete.” And he seems cute as a button!

Dallas scoop for a fellow Texan? ;) — Sherlee
By the end of the July 11 episode, John Ross will find himself in a tough spot after Christopher throws some possibly incriminating evidence in his face. As a result, he’ll have to decide what’s more important: business or his life!

Hi, Sandra!  It’s the last season of Weeds and I can’t help but think Celia Hodes needs to make an appearance… Is there hope for this? Have you heard anything? –Joanna
I haven’t heard anything official, but I wouldn’t count it out. Personally, I’d LOVE it.
