You got any Grey’s Anatomy – Meredith and Derek scoop? — Jessica Black
File this under possibly MerDer related: “By the end of the episode, someone’s life is up in the air,” Camilla Luddington, who plays Jo, tells me. “I have no idea if they’re dead, but that’s how it seems like.” But if we look at the current state of our docs, Jessica, who would you guess the person in danger is more likely to be? One of the doctors working to save lives in the dark or the woman giving birth in the dark? Hmm… (Finale airs tonight!)
Is all of HIMYM’s next season really going to take place in two days? — Karen
Yup. And exec producer Carter Bays tells me the premiere will also include a tiny time jump as well. “There’s a time jump of some sort in every episode of this show, so you can rest assured the premiere will be no different,” he says. “That being said, this next season in particular will feature some of the most non-linear episodes we’ve ever done.” There will be some exceptions, though. Hello, flashback eps! (Read more on the Mother here.)
Any early Glee intel? — Lynn
Obviously, the cast has just wrapped season four, but Jenna Ushkowitz says she’s “definitely looking forward to graduation.” “I’m not sure if they’ll be a huge ceremony like last year, but I think that’ll be interesting to see where she is going to go to college, if she’s going to go to college, what she’s going to pursue,” she says. As for Tina’s future? While she’s been wait-listed for vet school, Ushkowitz says she’d like to see Tina still keep a toe in the waters of the performing arts. “I’d like to see her try [to pursue it],” she says, “at least try.”
Did I see mermaids in that OUAT in Wonderland trailer? AMAZING! Any chance we’ll see THE most important mermaid Ariel next season?? — Holli
It’s up in the air according to EPs Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. “Obviously Neverland brings up mermaids and it brings up fairies,” says Kitsis. “We have ideas for Ariel. When we introduce her is up in the air because we’re still figuring out what we want to do. There’s a possibility we’ll see her.” Horowitz adds that she’s “one of our favorite characters” and “if and when we do it, we just want to make sure we do it right.” One thing you can count on? Her story will very much follow the Once model — surprises on top of surprises. “The thing that we love to do and that we will continue to do is, we do love to be able to say, here’s the backstory of an iconic character, but it’s not what you think,” Kitsis says. “So for Beauty and the Beast, we realized the beast was Rumpelstiltskin. And we realized Bae was with the Darlings, and that Red Riding Hood was the wolf. We still want to be able to show you our versions of things, and of course Ariel is at the top of the list.” Meanwhile: Seen this?
Elementary! I can’t wait for the season finale! — Aly S.
Here’s a refreshing departure for the season finale norm: While lots of shows have left us pondering numerous cliffhangers with their season finales, expect the opposite from Elementary. “For a good long while we anticipated a cliffhanger,” executive producer and creator Robert Doherty says. “When it looked more likely that we would get to go to London for our premiere, we didn’t want to drag any of this year’s business into a second season…So the notion of going to London came up early enough for us to write what I feel is a nice last chapter for this season. We will be tying things up and starting with something of a clean slate coming into year two.” Yay for closure!
Any Psych scoop?! — Lizzie
The upcoming season finale is going to shake up the precinct in a way that will make you wonder exactly how next season will unfold. Specifically, someone might be exiting the PD with a box of their belongings in-hand!
Falling Skies?! — Tara
Glad you asked! Because as we prepare for the June 9th premiere, executive producer Remi Aubuchon reveals that the third season will be about “figuring out at what cost victory is.” “We begin with the 2nd Mass and the humans winning, and we’re winning because we have allied ourselves with another set of aliens. And part of what we wanted to kind of explore this season in a very sort of general way was how does that change things.” He adds: “I think, in some ways, the story is a little more complex this season in that it doesn’t depend on just one conflict. There’s many conflicts that are established within this third season.”
Any Teen Wolf scoopage! I saw some people got screeners! — Michelle
I, indeed, have the first episode in my grasp. What I can tell you? Lydia is cured!…of the heartache caused by the departure of Jackson. Well, rather, she’s getting there. How? Lots of ***! Elsewhere, despite Scott and Allison’s desire to ignore each other at every cost, they do have an encounter early on in the episode. Call it fate — or a deer.
Vampire Diaries finale!! — Jane
Last minute juicy scoop! Nina Dobrev tells us that at the end of tonight’s season finale, Elena “finally breathes a sigh of relief.” “It may not seem like a lot right now but it will make sense quite literally what I mean afterwards,” she teases. CAN’T. WAIT.
