'Bones,' 'Chicago Fire,' 'Suits,' 'How I Met Your Mother': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Vacation is over. Time to kick off the Fall TV season in style!

Step one: Pick up this monster of an issue. Step two:  Program DVR(s). Step 3: Enjoy the scoop below! Step 4: Send me your burning questions (spoilerroom@ew.com)

‘BONES': FOUR BURNING QUESTIONS ANSWERED

+ Tease a cute Bones/Booth moment! — Rita
The end of the premiere is very touching. Watching Bones deal with her hurt feelings throughout the episode is hard (especially since Emily Deschanel is so good!) but it’s worth it for the ending.

+ Anything you can tell me about Pelant’s demise? — Cassie
Here’s what I can say: In the premiere, you don’t SEE Pelant, but his presence is so foreboding that a paranoid person might start looking at every piece of electronics in their house with a raised eyebrow. Meanwhile, anyone looking to buy some electronics?

+ How much do we see Freddie Prinze Jr. in the premiere? Did you like him? — Farrah
He doesn’t have a huge amount of screen time in the first episode, but we are introduced to the character, knowing he’ll be back at some point. (By the end of the hour, he owes Booth a favor!) And with such a small amount of screen time, it’s hard to read this character, but I like what I see so far. He’s almost seems like alt-Booth — almost how I imagine Booth had he not found Brennan and the Squints. If that makes sense.

+ Any teases for episodes beyond the premiere or the wedding? — Val
In the second episode — which, as previously reported, takes place at a couples retreat — there’s a sweat lodge scene. #thankyouproducers As for the wedding, this affair won’t be rushed. We’ll see a reception. There’s lots of returns. (Ryan O’Neal! Ty Panitz! Cyndi Lauper!) And, duh, a ceremony! 

‘CHICAGO FIRE': FIVE PREMIERE TEASES!

Chicago Fire fans should be excited about the season to come. Why? I’ll give you FIVE reasons…

+ The episode takes place on Casey’s first day back after taking a trip to clear his head. He’s still struggling with the death of Hallie but he’s not as bad as when we last saw him depressed and disheveled. So are things looking up for him? Not exactly. By the end of the episode, he’s going to find himself very close to a situation that promises more headache-inducing situations. Can’t this guy catch a break?

+ One of the firefighters betrays his colleagues in what they believe to be a big way. It’s actually more hilarious than serious.

+ Michelle Forbes is deliciously evil in the role of Gail McLeod, a ball-busting consultant who is charged with keeping an eye on the firehouse. Gail is also the lady charged with deciding which firehouses are due for closure because of budget cuts. Her first interaction with Boden will leave you worried about Firehouse 51.

+ We learn one of the characters is being targeted! Like, someone-wants-you-dead targeted.

+ One of the crew is going to run for union president! I love the character the writers picked to lead this storyline. Guesses?

‘SUITS': SARAH RAFFERTY TEASES THE FINALE

This season of Suits has been a rollercoaster ride of the best kind — both in terms of the relationships on the show and in terms of the larger arc about the firm as a business. And if Sarah Rafferty is to be believed, the finale will be a fitting ending to a twist-filled season. In the episode, airing Tuesday, the firm will still be reeling from the divorce with Darby, and on top of that, dealing with the lawsuit brought against them by Ava Hessington. “For better or worse, everyone has to come together and deal with that,” teases Rafferty.

But it’s not all drama, she says. “I can tell you there are some surprising, warm moments,” she says, “but just when you’re sinking into that great feeling of warm fuzziness, you’re kind of slammed with a bit of a revelation that you’re going to have to wait to find out [more] about in the winter premiere.” That’s right, there’s a cliffhanger. Surprise! (Not really.)

Elsewhere, look for Donna to have a really great scene with Stephen Huntley that takes place in prison, as seen in the promo. “You get a chance to see Donna have a little bit of closure,” she says.

'Castle' books 'Chuck' actor for ... time-travel episode (!?) -- EXCLUSIVE

It’s safe to say Castle and Beckett have never encountered a suspect-of-the-week quite like this.

EW has learned exclusively that Joshua Gomez (Morgan from Chuck!) has been recruited to guest star as a suspect in a grisly murder who claims to have traveled back in time to stop terrible events from unfolding — events that will change the course of human history. Yes, to answer the question you’re thinking, there’s a chance this man is simply a deluded killer. Or maybe not…

This is far from the first time Castle has staged a fun, zany episode. Last year, for example, Castle and Beckett worked a case where Bigfoot was briefly — in Castle’s mind — a suspect.

Gomez will appear in the fifth episode of the upcoming sixth season, which kicks off Sept. 23 on ABC.

'Castle' nabs 'Alphas' alum for guest spot -- EXCLUSIVE

Warren Christie won’t need special powers for his upcoming role on Castle, but they’d probably come in handy.

Christie, who last starred as hyperkinetic Cameron Hicks on Syfy’s Alphas, is set to guest star on the second episode of Castle‘s upcoming sixth season. He will play Brad Parker, a reporter with a penchant for uncovering stories that are deterimental to national security.

Christie, who was on Alphas until its cancellation in January, also recently made guest appearances on Arrow and King & Maxwell.

Castle, which will also welcome guest star Lisa Edelstein this season, returns for new episodes Sept. 23.

'Castle': Lisa Edelstein in for multi-episode arc

Somebody’s trading up.

Ex-House inhabitant Lisa Edelstein is moving on to bigger and better digs — specifically, ABC’s Castle. EW has confirmed that Edelstein has booked a multi-episode arc on the crime drama’s sixth season. TVLine first reported the news.

Edelstein — who last appeared over the past TV season on ScandalHouse of Lies, and Elementary — will play hard-core federal investigator Rachel McCord. It’s safe to say that the new character will have ties to Beckett (Stana Katic), who was planning to move to D.C. in May’s finale — until Castle (Nathan Fillion) unexpectedly proposed.

‘TRUE BLOOD: ‘PAM’S LOSING EVERYTHING SHE VALUES

True Blood premiered its sixth season last weekend on HBO, and while the reaction was somewhat mixed, I was glad to see one consistent feeling across the board: Gov. Burrell is one big slimy toad.

As you know, Burrell is the one leading this anti-vampire campaign, but quite soon, even more about his charge against the vamps will come to light — and some of it is a little disturbing. (One word: Experiments) “That is quite something,” Kristin Bauer van Straten says of the upcoming revelations about just how far Burrell’s gone to start developing defenses against the vamps. “It’s just all part of the theme that the tables have turned and the vampires are being hunted….[The humans] are figuring out how to fight back.” READ FULL STORY

Spoiler Room is back from summer vacation!!

For details on how I spent my weeks off, watch Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Summer Vacation. Actually, that has nothing to do with what I did, but I wish it did. (Also, I really love that movie.) The real answer to how I spent my time off is nothing you’d be particularly interested in.

'Castle' EP teases moments 'fans have been waiting for'

In last week’s episode of Castle, Beckett found herself confronting a few important questions. Specifically, she began to wonder about her future with Castle, with whom she feels she shares a passionate if seemingly directionless relationship.

Up to this point, the pair’s courtship has been a pleasant one — riddled with banter, fun romps and several sweet moments. But as the show heads towards its May 13 season finale, look for the more serious issues to rise to the surface, according to executive producer Andrew Marlowe.

“We’re getting to a point in their relationship where some important questions arise,” he says. “And some complications come in from outside their relationship that are going to force them to deal with where they are, who they are, and what’s next for them both individually and potentially in this relationship.” READ FULL STORY

'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.”

ABC reschedules bomb-themed 'Castle' episode

An upcoming episode of Castle has been delayed in light of Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon.

EW has confirmed that ABC has rescheduled a bomb-themed episode of the hit drama, titled “Still,” which was set to air this coming Monday. It will now air on April 29.

Instead, the network will air another new episode, titled “The Squab and the Quail,” which was scheduled to air the week after “Still.” In “Squab,” Beckett (Stana Katic) is assigned to protect a charming billionaire entrepreneur ( Ioan Gruffudd) whose life is in danger.

The swap comes two days after three people were killed and more than 170 injured in explosions at the Boston Marathon.
