Sons of Anarchy, PLEASE — Lynn
The premiere contains easily one of the most chilling scenes shown on television in a long time. And so many twists…Send specific questions about the season to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any news on the Criminal Minds 200th episode? — T
For this huge milestone episode, EP Erica Messer reports it will be a “J J-centered” hour penned by longtime writer/producer Rick Dunkle. “The general [idea] is [filling in] while she was gone. So season 6, that year we didn’t have her, we want to tell you those stories,” Messer teases. In the episode, she added, we’ll learn more about the history J J shares with Matt Cruz, the new BAU’s section chief, played by Esai Morales, who debuts in the third episode of the new season.
I heard someone dies this week on Under the Dome. Any hints or other scoop? — Dina
We bid farewell to not one but TWO of the Dome’d in Monday’s episode. One of those deaths comes after a power struggle turns ugly. The other is more mysterious and shrouded in questions, specifically about some of the Dome’s capabilities. Also, it’s sad. REALLY sad.
Any Under the Dome scoop? Thanks, Sandra! — Lillian
Angie’s out! But Neal Baer tells me all may not be as it seems between Angie and Junior and teases of twists to come. “You know how Junior always says, ‘Angie, you’re sick’? And everybody’s like ‘Junior, I hate him. He’s psychotic. He’s f—ed up.’ It’s like, really? Well, we’ll see…” he says cryptically. Also, he says, all viewers with questions about Joe and Norrie’s seizures will soon find some answers. “By episode 8, [the characters] will discover something that will change everything for the rest of the season,” he says.
So Carrie is off her meds again on Homeland, huh? What else ya got? needallthespoilersplease. — Liz
To be clear: Carrie may be off her actual meds, but we do see her SELF medicating quite a bit. (Hello, booze!) Meanwhile, as the show’s EPs reported at TCA, we do spend quite a bit of time with the Brody clan, getting a glimpse into the life of a family whose world has been rocked. Tease: We learn one family member in particular had a pretty horrible spiral after everything went down.
Can a girl get some Graceland scoop? (Aaron Tveit…yum) — Chrissy
The Is Briggs Bad tango will continue, with Mike, who like us is trying to solve the mystery of Briggs, making a very ballsy move during an agency-monitored robbery attempt in the penultimate episode. The end of said hour will leave you more confused than ever. #pleasebegoodBriggs
Any Parenthood scoopage? — Kirsten
Though the cast gave some great teases at their panel during TCA this week, I do have a bit more to add. For one, look for Max to follow up his reign as Student Council president with a position working on the school’s yearbook, where he will have a brief stint as a photographer. Key word: brief. The youngster’s difficulty with social skills will once again step in to interfere with his ambitions — and Kristina and Adam might take it hard when they realize they can’t win every battle for him. Growing up is hard to do, kids — and, I guess, parents.
SO excited about Flash coming to Arrow!!! PLEASE tell me more. — Reilly
EP Andrew Kreisberg is probably as pumped as we are, Reilly — not only because he’s getting a chance to bring to life a great character, but also because of what Barry Allen’s arrival means for all the residents of Starling City. “He’s a great character who’s going to affect all of our characters’ lives,” he teases. Most notably, look for Barry and Oliver to have a certain amount of “friction” in their relationship.
Anything on Twisted? It’s become one of my new favorite summer shows! — Anna
With just four episodes to go until the end of the first part of the season, Avan Jogia teased that we’ll be seeing Danny reaching “his lowest point” in the last new episode of 2013. And while he confirmed that we will not know if Danny murdered Regina anytime soon, he says he doesn’t know the actual answer to the big mystery. “They have not told me,” he says. “We have an opportunity to make a very interesting, challenging show and that’s all I care about. I want to hold my opinion on whether I want him to be a murderer or not. There are other ways that you can be a bad guy that have nothing to do with murder and that’s what I would like to explore … of course, he may still end up being a psychopath.”
Would love some Nikita scoop! — Amy
Bad news for Alex. The show is currently casting a character named Ellen Crawford, a CIA case officer who’s as blunt as she is well-versed in interrogation techniques. Eep. Let’s just say Ellen and Alex are going to share some scenes in which Alex’s past comes back to haunt her. But they will also serve as a reminder (as if you needed one) of how badass Alex is.
New Girl!! — Diane
VIVA Mexico! I hear the premiere episode is going to revolve around a trip across the border that will go terribly wrong. Notably: Someone gets sent to “jail,” several people get tasered, and Winston reveals a deep-dark secret. (Okay, it’s not deep.)
