Can I get some Kensi and/or Deeks scoopage? Thanks for all the NCIS: LA love, Sandra! — Jadyn
In an upcoming episode, one of these two is going to get help for a very serious problem that’s usually reserved for male celebrities who get caught cheating on their wife: sex addiction. Yup, in an upcoming episode Deeks will find himself in a Malibu rehab center seeking help for this, um, troublesome issue. “The audience will have to wait to see if he’s undercover of if he’s got a serious issue,” jokes executive producer Shane Brennan.
Any intel on Bates Motel season 2? — Dana
Actually, I ran into Kenny Johnson the other week and he set up the conflict that we’ll see when he debuts in the role of Norma’s brother, Caleb, in the upcoming second season. As you remember, in season 1, Norma confessed that her brother raped her years earlier, but as Johnson explains, her story will come into question. “He has his version and she has her version,” he says. “Obviously in an episode last season, she says [her] brother used to rape [her] in high school, so that’s all her son knows. But what is the real story and what’s the background, nobody is really going to know.” As Caleb seeks some version of reconciliation, Johnson teases, “As crazy as it can get, it gets.”
Any chance of other members of PLL coming to Ravenswood? — Lilian
Not in the first five, but Marlene King teases, “There is definitely a plan of action that would bring the character of Hanna to Ravenswood.”
SANDRA! I loved the premiere of Ravenswood … but are they setting up Miranda and Caleb to become a thing? Please tell me Haleb isn’t doomed — Stella “There’s nothing set in stone that says that anybody has to be in a relationship with anyone else,” reports Marlene King. “I think as we’re getting to know the characters; they’re leading the way as to where we go with these relationships. The same goes for Hanna on PLL — there’s a new character who becomes a part of here life while Caleb is in Ravenswood and we are letting those characters sort of pave the way and decide if there’s going to be a relationship there or not.” One thing you probably won’t see, though, she says? A Miranda-Hanna feud. “We try not to do that on PLL and we’ll try not to do that on Ravenswood — we like girls to support girls,” she says. “It’s sort of the cardinal rule — no PLL ever touches another PLL boyfriend, or girlfriend, in Emily’s case.”
I need some Glee scoop!! — Sheri
Will you take something from upcoming guest star Adam Lambert, who plays a character named Elliott “Starchild” Gilbert? As you may know, Lambert’s New Jersey-native character will audition for a new band put together by Kurt, but, he teases, it’s not love at first sight. “As far as the character goes, at first Kurt and Starchild don’t quite click, but then they click,” he teases. “It’s definitely a work in progress.”
Grimm scoop? — Kellie
Wondering about the next time we’ll see Mama Burkhardt? Well, when I talked to star David Giuntoli during EW’s Google+ Hangout with the actor, he teased an upcoming reappearance! “She probably will be making an appearance soon,” he said coyly, adding that they’re currently filming episode 10. So put your money sometime between episodes 3 and 10. Want more scoop? Watch the hangout below!
Any Tomorrow People info? Especially John-centric. Luke Mitchell is just delicious. — Carina
Get ready to see Mr. Delicious when he was just a teenager. In next week’s episode, we’ll delve into John’s backstory much like we did with Cara this week and it’s equally heartbreaking. And by the end of the episode, which features guest star Jason Dohring (Veronica Mars), John makes a decision that’s going to leave your jaw on the floor.
BATB scoop, PLEASE!!!! — Aimee
How about I give you a clip from the new Beauty and the Beast episode on Monday? Deal? Stay tuned for that, I’ll tweet it as soon as it’s ready.
When does Raising Hope come back? — Marie
It’s called GOOGLE, Marie. Gosh. Kidding. But seriously, lady, get it together! Raising Hope premieres Nov. 15, and in the episode, we meet guest star Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), who is playing a role with a secret twist! I’d give you three guesses, but I think you’ll only need two. (Yeah, I’m not giving you TOO much credit.) But even after the big reveal of which I speak, look for the character to drop another revelation by episode’s end that will change the way Virginia sees her past forever. Guys, it’s so good. Watch it. And watch this.
I need to know more about Nolan and Victoria’s son on Revenge. I mean…OMG! — Nina
You’re tellin’ me! And I shared my shock with Gabriel Mann when we met up for a Google+ Hangout earlier this week. And he claimed he nor Justin Hartley saw it coming either. He also hinted that their…whateveritis might eventually cause some problems between him and Emily. “Her one-mindedness about getting this revenge, I think, sometime doesn’t always account for other people’s feelings…I can guarantee you she’s going to get some serious push-back in terms of forging ahead,” he said. “I think as much as Nolan is devoted to helping her accomplish her goals, if it starts to come into opposition to things Nolan might want personally in his life, they might have some beef. They might have some words.” OK, he didn’t ACTUALLY say it had to do with Patrick. But that’d be my educated guess.
Any Revenge scooplets? — Diana
Get ready for a blast from the past…or, rather, a blast from not recent times. Who? Gabriel Mann wouldn’t say, but, he teased, “There’s one character, in particular, that’s maybe going to surprise you [and] who maybe you haven’t seen for a minute. That’s going to be an all-caps O-M-G moment.”
Any idea if there will be a Red John clue on this week’s The Mentalist? — David
There will be — and it’s a pretty significant one that won’t be easy for RJ to conceal.
