New Girl!! PLEASE! Preferably Nick-Jess-centric! — Erika
Next week’s new episode is going to be another Nick/Jess fan fave as Jess finds herself making LOTS of confessions while high as a kite on painkillers. Meanwhile, as you may have heard, the March 26 episode is going to be an emotional affair as the gang travels to Chicago to support Nick after his dad dies. While that may sound like a heartbreaker, Jake Johnson also promised some lighter fare in April 30’s “Virgins,” which finds the gang recounting the time they lost their virginities. “Well he was 16. He had braces. He was not a smooth operator believe it or not, but it’s a big father-son kind of – wait that sounds wrong – [Nick and] his father really connect [via flashback] with the idea of how they each lost their virginity. So we get really great Walt/Nick stuff.”
SANDRA! I need some Supernatural scoop. Seriously. If you don’t deliver, I’ll send some Hellhounds after you. — Tammy (co-King of Hell)
I don’t respond well to threats, Tammy. But I also happen to have some scoop that will subdue you — and your Hellhounds. In the March 20 ep, I can tell you that Castiel and Dean’s relationship will be tested as Castiel feels Naomi’s (Amanda Tapping) pull stronger than ever. (Warning: It gets brutal/heartbreaking/SOFREAKINGGOOD!) Bonus (vague) scoop: Sooner rather than later, yet another character is going to [spoiler]!
I’m DYING for some Cougar Town scoop!! — Kelly
Oof. Speaking of death, I can tell you the April 9 season finale will feature — shock! — a funeral. But this farewell is not the part of the two-part finale that will have you blubbering like a baby.
Hi Sandra. Now that you have moved to L.A. and closer to the action, I really hope you can score some great scoop on my two favorite shows, Castle and NCIS. Pretty please? — Cheryl
Someone on the NCIS team is hiding a big secret, and how/when/why it comes to light, is going to lead to what I predict will be one of the best episodes yet. (And just wait till you see [spoiler]’s reaction to the revelation!)
What the heck is going on with Nick on Grimm?! That last scene with him on the floor was terrifying! — Lola
I’ll do you one better, Lola. Here’s David Giuntoli answering three burning questions about the big episode:
Looking for any spoilers you have on a great new drama, Golden Boy. So far, love the casting and writing!!! Please…. -- Cjsm66
Oh, joy! I was hoping I wasn’t the only following this show. And you’re in luck. When I hit up the set of Golden Boy a few months back, Theo James opened up about two great things to look forward to. The first is episode 4, which he says “is probably one of my favorite episodes because you come to learn how Clark makes that transition from a naive cop to making movements in the political sphere of the police force in New York.” And the second: Meeting Clark’s father, whom he calls “a bad force in Clark’s life.” “We find out through snippets that he has done something so bad that [Clark, as commissioner] can’t even look at him and won’t even speak to him. He won’t accept his existence,” says James. “So the dad is a formidable force, which you begin to find out in the end of the first season. That is part of the storyline that if a second season happens, that would be part of [the storyline] -- how he forced Clark to do things he shouldn’t have one.”
I’d love some info on The Americans. I’m having so much fun seeing Keri Russell kick some ass. -- Robin
While we’re playing with profanity: Look for a major HOLY SH!# moment in tonight’s episode, which finds Philip reuniting with an old flame, who delivers some big news about their past. But after the initial shock, you’ll later learn that things aren’t exactly as they seem. I’ll have a lot more for Americans fans very soon. So make sure you send me your specific questions in the next week or so.
I know we’re going to see Regina and Snow feuding more than ever now that Snow killed Cora, but are we going to get to see Regina mourn a little? -- Trish
For sure. In fact, Lana Parrilla tells me that even though we’ll see Regina having a bit of a “one track mind” when it comes to revenge, “you’re definitely going to see [her pain.] There’s a moment of grieving and mourning her mother’s passing,” she says.
Sandra, I’m SO excited about “Lacey,” I can’t even tell you. Anything more you can report about Rumbelle in this episode? -- Kelly
I’m tapped out on “Lacey” scoop -- other than the fact that Emile de Ravin promised that the gold dress does appear. But how about this bit from Robert Carlyle on the pair’s next meeting after THAT phone call: “Something that does come out of that is that the phone call he makes to her when he's dying; she thinks there must be something true there. He actually visits her in hospital and says, 'Look, I know you don't have any memory of me, but my feelings for you are true.’ And she says [that she] could tell.' So we start to go on that journey." Can’t. Wait.
Any chance we’re going to see more Stefan and Rebekah? I loved those two! -- Silvia
I’ll let boss Julie Plec take this one directly: “Well, as much as I know people love Stefan and Rebekah -- and by all means so do we -- her [recent] actions put a little bit of a hold on any future romantic dalliances between them.” Personally, a bit of a hold is better than an indefinite end. So consider me on pins and needles because I dug this heat-fueled hook-up, too, Silvia! (Mainly because you’ll never see me arguing with any Salvatore clothing removal.)
