Sandra, if I had three wishes, I’d ask for $10 million dollars, some New Girl scoop, and a game of True American with the entire EW crew. Can you make one of those happen?
Scoop: Thought the unexpected kisses were done for the season? Think again! Tonight’s episode features a kiss you won’t see coming, and it’s great in all the right (and, for them, slightly horrific) ways. Guess the participants. And since you used an entire wish on this, I’ll add this: I hear there might be wedding bells in someone’s future. Also, I’ll work on the latter wish — only because that sounds like SO much fun. Comic-Con, anyone?
Last night’s Following was the best so far! But it got me thinking about season 2. Any idea if there are plans for that? — Sarah
Should The Following get a second season (and it should!), Kevin Williamson says the plan is to have “a little bit of a reinvention.” “We’ve got another book planned, [but] it can’t be the same book, can it?” he teases.
Boyd and Ava…I just can’t. Last week’s Justified was too perfect. Scoop on this awesome couple or Justified in general?
Tonight’s episode has a little bit of everything: great Boyd and Ava moments, suspense, swingers, and a true battle of the hardheads when Raylan goes to visit Arlo in prison with an interesting offer.
I’m really worried about Army Wives this season, Sandra. SO many changes. Anything to soothe my fears? — Stephanie
I thought the season 7 premiere was definitely on point, but as you may know, Claudia Joy is a goner in the season premiere. So that definitely won’t be an easy goodbye for viewers — or the gang, for that matter — it’s nicely done. (My advice: Drink every time you hear the name “Claudia Joy.” You’ll be too smashed to care about the overwhelming sadness you’re feeling within the first 20 mins.) Also, prepare yourself: The second episode might bring news of another impending farewell.
Any plans for Mulan to return to Once? — Alyson
“We’re not going to rule anything out and there are some surprises we want to keep in store for characters who may be coming back later in the season,” says executive producer Adam Horowitz. “So we’re not going to rule anything out nor will we confirm or deny.”
SANDRA! LAST NIGHT’S CASTLE WAS ALMOST TOO MUCH! I might have just re-watched and started crying again. Any happier news to share? — Kylie
“We have a really fun episode where a woman is murdered and it seems like something supernatural is responsible,” reports executive producer Andrew Marlowe. “And [they discover] — not unlike the Ring — a videotape message that creepy and appears to Castle to be haunted. After seeing it, he’s convinced he’s going to be the next victim — and he may not be wrong.” If that doesn’t sound fun, I don’t know what is! Also later this season? One word: Big Foot.
Any Castle scoop to share? PLEASE! — Leslie
Here’s something you’ll love if you’re a fan of Det. Ryan: An upcoming episode is going to delve back into Ryan’s past as a detective in narcotics. “A person from one of his old cases resurfaces and it forces him to go undercover again,” says Marlowe, “and it’s a much different Ryan we get to see. He’s sort of put an aspect of himself behind him [when he] went to be a homicide detective and became the sweater vest guy — but he wasn’t always that guy.
SANDRA! Ben and Leslie are getting married! Any wedding scoop for me and my fellow Parks and Rec fans? — Liv
Not on the wedding, but I can tell you that in an upcoming episode, Ron and Leslie are going to find themselves on opposite ends of a very important budget issue. And in an effort to get Councilman Jamm to vote in their favor, they may have to take their disagreement to the *battlefield for a **fight to the death.
*The battlefield in question is a miniature golf course. ** Fight to the death = This will not be fatal.
Hey Sandra! You watching The Americans? I’d love some scoop if you do! — Erin
As Philip and Elizabeth get closer (lots of sexy time!), Stan and his wife start to slowly drift apart, a subject she brings up with him on an already tough day. (Tough day = Prez Reagan’s attempted assassination)
Any news on my friends in Chatswin? — Ashley
In an episode toward the end of the season, Suburgatory is going to explore every college senior’s biggest decision: which college to attend. And for golden boy Ryan Shay, that decision is going to involve a lot of bribery.
The season premiere of Southland was incredible. Any scoop on Lydia or Sammy? — Christine
This week’s episode is going to be a heck of an hour for Regina King’s Lydia, who on top of suffers a devastating loss. Yes, you should be worried.
Am I corny for kind of tearing up during Sue’s kiss last week on The Middle? I need to know this thing she has with Darrin isn’t going to go sour. They’re TOO good together. — Mack
I present you assurance, featuring the lovely Eden Sher:
Note: Eden also took EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test and was sort of brilliant. Keep an eye out for that video!
