'Castle,' 'Bones,' 'The Good Wife,' 'NCIS': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Happy finale season! We’re in the home stretch but before we all prepare for our post-TV season depression, let’s dig in to some scoop.

Have a question for next week? Send it to spoilerroom@ew.com or find me on Twitter @EWSandraG

‘CASTLE’: SHOULD CASTLE/BECKETT FANS BE WORRIED?

Aside from a few bumps along the way, this season of Castle has been filled with lots of joy for Castle and Beckett — the “honeymoon period,” as executive producer Andrew Marlow calls it. But will the May 13 finale bring an official end to this honeymoon?

“I think the finale’s goal is to ask some hard questions, and take a look at some reconceived notions and some assumptions that both characters may have that may or may not be accurate,” he elaborates.

Judging from the questions you fans sent in, though, I know there’s one question that’s been plaguing your minds: Should you be worried about Castle and Beckett’s relationship status. The answer? Well, it’s complicated: “I think whenever we go into a finale episode, of course, the fans should be worried about things,” Marlowe says. “But what we’re trying to do is find honest organic storytelling that’s more complicated than ‘should we be worried’ because I think ‘should we be worried’ implies a binary outcome — either X happens to Y happens and I think we’re trying to tell a lot more complicated story than that.”

I warned you. It’s complicated. Thankfully clarity is just around the corner, as are more teases from Marlow. Stay tuned.

‘BONES’: HOW BAD IS PELANT? WELL…

Think we’ve seen the worst from brilliant hacker Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds)? Think again.

In Monday’s season finale of Bones, the evil genius now has more tools at his disposal than ever before and will show just how much he can mess with the lives of our gang, “I think it’s emotional for everybody,” previews Emily Deschanel. “The victims — there may be multiple victims — have connections to the FBI and Booth and Booth…knows the victim well. So it’s a big deal.”

After stealing Hodgins’s fortune in a previous episode, we’ll find Pelant operatings from some very fancy new digs in Monday’s season ender and living with “no restrictions.” “He has unlimited capabilities at this point and that’s pretty terrifying when you think about a brilliant, evil person with all those resources,” she says.

But his most evil act of the episode? That one you won’t see coming. “It’s like the last few season finales where you really have to watch until the very last minute,” she teases.

More from Deschanel on Monday.

‘NASHVILLE’: BIG CHANGES COMING

We all saw Lamar flirt with death in the last new episode of Nashville, but even though he made it out alive, there are big changes in store for the family.

“[Tandy] is sort of the son her father never had and has been groomed for the top role at the company and to succeed my father when it was time for him to step down or, god forbid, he should pass away. So it becomes clear the time is getting closer, it’s time to maybe make some moves,” Judith Hoag teases. “Lamar and Tandy have some different visions for how the company should be run, and I think Tandy has hit a point where she’s done being told who to be and what to do.”

That goes over with Lamar about as well as you’d expect. But Hoag says Tandy’s new attitude isn’t the only thing drumming up drama. “She also finds out information that makes her uncomfortable with how business is being handled…and also I question a big Lamar’s state of mind,” she says. “But we can never forget what a worthy opponent he is. He’s worthy and he taught me very well. So it should be interesting.”

'Bones': 'Are you here to buy me an engagement ring?' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

“Bones, are you here to buy me an engagement ring?” Booth asks Brennan as they walk into a jewelry store in the exclusive clip below.

Before you get yourself all worked up, her answer is no. And even though we hope that changes one day, it’s not today. Booth and Brennan actually find themselves in a ring shop because of the case they’re investigating in next week’s episode of Bones, titled “The Blood From the Stones.”

According to a description for the hour, which airs March 25 on Fox, the gang finds themselves working a case of a dead undercover police officer, who is found with bag of diamonds inside his mutilated body. That leads B&B to the aforementioned diamond store — and then to a pretty awkward exchange in which Bones’s views on marriage are put on display for the shop keeper. (Note: Booth seems to be enjoying watching her squirm.)

'Bones': Emily Deschanel previews Brennan's meeting with mom

On tonight’s Bones, Brennan will fight for her life after being shot in the lab. But this isn’t your typical brush-with-death.

The episode will also find Brennan coming face to face with her dead mother (Brooke Langton) in an alternate-universe/heaven/…well, we’ll let Emily Deschanel explain.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s talk about this episode. It sounds like a fairly spiritual hour, considering Brennan is not a believer.
EMILY DESCHANEL: Brennan is convinced that she’s hallucinating and hasn’t gone to heaven, but people may end up interpreting it differently — maybe even Brennan interprets it differently by the end. But basically she’s shot and flatlines for a period of time — a few times, really — and kind of goes to her childhood house and finds herself in her childhood home with her mother. It brings up all of the wounds from being abandoned. But Brennan is always rationalizing everything, and [the experience] kind of breaks down some of her barriers. By the end, it kind of gives her a reason to rethink her hyper-rational demeanor and consider listening to her heart from time to time. READ FULL STORY

'Bones,' 'Criminal Minds,' 'Office,' 'New Girl,' 'Supernatural': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

I sometimes forget to stop and think about the weirdness that is the Spoiler Room photo blend. I mean, how hilarious/weird/awesome would it be if Dwight, Morgan, and Brennan were on the same show? I mean…wow.

Sorry, can you tell I just got off a Red Eye?

Anyway, enjoy your scoops below, and keep sending questions. I like questions — they give me the same feeling that I got whenever I’d get mail as a kid. That was pretty much euphoria, right?

Three important notices for all Spoiler Room readers:

1) Next week, I’ll be in California, so expect this column to be 30 percent less cold and bitter. 2) Don’t forget to send in your questions. (spoilerroom@ew.com) If you do — I don’t know if you know this — but all the puppies everywhere will cry. And 3) Space Jam is awesome — and so are you.

‘REVENGE’: WHO’S ON THE BOAT?
As we know, someone is going down with the Amanda. But who? We’ll definitely find out sooner than you might think.

In fact, Gabriel Mann tells me that the big reveal has already been filmed and “it’s a very touching, very action-packed” script. “It is very moving and very poignant, and let’s just say it kind of re-ups Emily’s game in a lot of different ways,” he says.

And while he couldn’t say a single thing about the victim (naturally), Mann did tease that the next few episodes will be the perfect build up. “From a personal point of view, I tend to think that Jack’s fatal flaw is his pride. He’s been keeping the goings on with the Stowaway close to the vest while Emily has been caught up in the Aiden of it all and I’ve been caught up in the NolCorp-takeover-Padma-Marco of it all. I think all of a sudden, our eyes are starting to turn back to the Stowaway and say, ‘What’s been happening here right under our nose?’ he says. “I don’t think it’s ever a good idea to have Emily and Nolan’s sights set on you with laser intensity. Nobody messes with our Jack.”

Now deep into filming the second half of the season, Mann promises that viewers will soon see all the plot points connecting. “I think the ways in which [creator] Mike Kelley has managed to weave all of these things that seem to be coming from a lot of different angles is really one of his fortes,” he says. “I think for viewers of the show — any questions that they may have had or confusion about what came up in the first half of the season will be answered very deliciously in the second half.”

‘BONES’: SWEETS ON THE MOVE
Before I get to our main event, did y’all like last night’s episode as much as I did? If so, make sure you read my post-mortem with executive producer Stephen Nathan here. We talk about Pelant’s next return and preview some emotional upcoming episodes.

Now, on to business: I get asked about Sweets and Daisy almost as much as Booth and Brennan. (Almost.) So you’ll be happy to learn that we’ll see Daisy once again very soon. How? Nathan explains: “We are revisiting Sweets and Daisy. We have once where they kind of saw each other again and realized it was over. But we do have an episode coming up where Sweets’ living arrangement will change yet again. and Daisy is in that episode. But I don’t really want to say what happens.”

Subtext: Yes, Sweets’ stay with Booth and Brennan is coming to an end in a few episodes. (Awww! I liked the roomies!) But it could mean good news for Sweets and Daisy.

Fair trade? Thoughts?

'Bones' post-mortem: Boss on Pelant's return, Hodgins's big loss, and upcoming episodes

Not only did Pelant break into Angela and Hodgins’ home to leave a body, but later in the hour, he made the couple choose between saving their fortune or a bunch of children. They, of course, saved the children, but the decision left them without a dollar to their name.

In the end, Pelant slipped away once again, but this time, he didn’t walk away unscathed. In fact, he was very scathed — half his face had been cut up supervillain-style after one of Booth’s bullets struck the windshield of his getaway car.

So when will we see Pelant again? How will Angela and Hodgins deal with their new situation? EW got executive producer Stephen Nathan on the phone to talk about all of this and more. READ FULL STORY

'Bones' actor T.J. Thyne: Pelant will bring out a side of Hodgins we've never seen before

One of the last times Jack Hodgins (T.J. Thyne, left) was face-to-face with serial killer Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds), the scientist almost strangled him to death. And in tonight’s episode of Bones, Pelant is out to prove that he didn’t appreciate being treated that way.

Step one in his revenge? Turning Hodgins and Angela’s (Michaela Conlin, not pictured) home into a crime scene.

“[Pelant] rears his ugly head yet again and in a brutal, horrific way,” teases Thyne. “[And] the stress is now ten-fold because Jack isn’t just protecting himself, he’s got a wife and a child to protect.” READ FULL STORY

'Castle,' 'Criminal Minds,' 'American Horror Story,' 'Arrow': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room


It is trying times for some here on the east coast, but as many have said much more eloquently this week, we soldier on.

Here’s some scoop. I hope it makes you smile no matter where you live.

CASTLE CHRISTMAS EP SCOOP
Castle is doing its first Christmas episode! And while I was chatting with executive producer Andrew Marlowe about Castle’s slate of November episodes, I made sure to ask him about this hotly anticipated hour, which will be the show’s last new episode of 2012 (aka: midseason finale).

Per the boss, the “charming and heartfelt” episode will chronicle Castle and Beckett’s first Christmas as a couple. “We’ll see the pressures of that and what each of their personal traditions are and how those might clash — and complement each other,” says Marlowe. Meanwhile, fans to see Christmas through the eyes of lots of our precinct faves. “[We’ll see] what Esposito is doing for Christmas, what Lainey is doing for Christmas — and what they may or may not be doing together, and Ryan is having a little Christmas crisis of his own,” he says.

There’s also a Santa falling from the sky (Marlowe jokes that we should not to watch with Santa-loving children “unless you want to have to explain some stuff”) and a gift exchange to remember. Oh, and those of you claiming it’s time for the Ryan family to expand? “We certainly plant some seeds about that in the Christmas episode,” he teases.

CRIMINAL MINDS: MORE ON REID’S MYSTERY WOMAN!
You learned earlier today that Michelle Trachtenberg is going to go crazy on Criminal Minds! (You’re welcome.) But what I’m sure especially caught your eye was the tidbit where I told you that the episode would delve deep into Reid’s mystery woman. An additional nugget? It’s one of TWO upcoming episodes that will introduce us to this yet-unseen woman a bit more. (The identity of the actress is still a technical secret, but I can tell you that I have seen correct guesses.)

Executive producer Erica Messer tells me that episode 10 and 12 — the latter has Trachtenberg — will both inform audiences about who this woman is and show us a bit more of her unique relationship with Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler). (Also, she will be unmasked!) “Episodes 10 and 12 are the really big ones for [audiences] to see this character who we all know and love actually feel emotion for another person in a way that is not typical of him,” she says. “I think what we’ve all promised you guys is that it’s not going to be a typical love story or anything we’ve seen on this show. And I think Matthew would argue that you haven’t seen a story like this at all.”

In both episodes, she adds, the show will follow up in the information audiences learned in episode 4 — that the mysterious character is “running from someone and something.” And naturally, Messer teases, “her journey collides with the team.”

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM: LET’S PLAY A GAME…

Guys, I just can’t with AHS. I mean, I can. I do. I watch. I love. But last week almost made me sick.

Luckily, there’s a little less gross-out in the next two episodes and a lot of developments. (Mind you, there are still some gross-out moments.) For a taste of what’s to come: Who’s up for a game?

+ This week, [character] will [spoiler] with [character] in the kitchen.
+ Did we know that [character] knows about [character]’s evil deeds? I don’t think we did…
+ [Character] is going to try to [spoiler] [character]!! [Her or she] might succeed…
+ Two patients will be outside Briarcliff’s walls sooner than we think. But there’s a twist…
+ As EW told you first, this week, you’ll be introduced to a character named Anne Frank (Franka Potente). (Don’t scoff, watch.) Along with making crazy accusations about [character], she’ll have [character] questioning [his or her] sanity.

HURRICANE ME IS ON THE WAY!

But I’m not going to let pesky wind, rain, or Frankenstorms get in the way of giving you some scoop on your favorite shows. (It did, however, royally poop on some fun in-person chats I had set up. #NCIS #Revolution) However, we solider on.

‘NCIS: LA’: WHICH COUPLE WILL BE K-I-S-S-I-N-G BY 2013?
I have been loving the flirting between Eric and Nell this season, it has been adorable to witness! Can we hope to see more of it this season and see that relationship continue?  – Cheryl

Remember the almost-kiss between Nell and Eric earlier this season? Remember how bummed you were that it didn’t happen? Well, be sad no longer: There’s a KISS COMING! “I won’t tell you which episode,” teases executive producer Shane Brennan. “But there is a kiss coming. It’s nerd love!” (Extra hints because I like you: It will air before December and they are NOT on a mission.)

Now, before Kensi and Deeks fans cry foul and claim they’ve been waiting for a love connection longer, Brennan is quick to point out that the two couples are on very different paths. “Nerds don’t hang around when it comes to love. They jump right in,” he jokes. “It certainly has developed. It’s an intellectual relationship that sometimes struggles to find its physicality, but that’s the nature of the characters. Whereas Kensi and Deeks there a playfulness and sexy tension.” Look for Nell and Eric to continue to sizzle this season, and, Brennan predicts, “If it’s a race to the end, I think they’re leading Kensi and Deeks.”

For much more on NCIS: LA, keep an eye out for my November sweeps preview tomorrow!
