'Once Upon a Time,' 'House,' 'Burn Notice,' 'Vampire Diaries': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

We’re in the thick of finales, folks! I never thought it’d get here (and part of me hoped it never would!), but that’s indeed the case.

Having fun? Me too!

But it’s also been a ridiculously busy week, with a rush of renewals (O. M. G.), cancellations (R.I.P. Alcatraz), and pick ups (welcome, newbs). Next week? More madness, as the networks have their annual Upfront presentations here in NYC. But the good news for you is that I’ll be trolling around getting answers to your burning questions! So send them my way. Usual means works great: and @EWSandraG on Twitter!

After working on Lost, Once Upon a Time executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsiss know how to tease finales. Proof? This timely characterization of Sunday’s season finale: “They are the gang. They are the Fairy Tale Avengers,” they told EW in a chat earlier this week. Take a moment to take that in. Squeal with excitement. Now, compose yourself long enough to take in some elaboration, straight from Josh Dallas, who stopped by the office just yesterday. READ FULL STORY

'Castle' season finale: The inside story on THAT moment

SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information on the season finale of Castle. Do not read on if you haven’t watched! You’ve been warned!

Castle creator and executive producer Andrew Marlowe knew that last night’s big moment would have fans buzzing. How could it not? After four seasons of ups, downs, and shameless flirting from both Castle and Beckett, the season 4 finale gave fans what they’d been hoping for: a chance to see the pair finally get together!

Bold? You bet. But not as bold as the alternative, says Marlowe. “Not doing it would have been even ballsier because I think the audience is near its breaking point,” he says. “And it’s 2012, people fall into and out of bed together all the time. If it had gone on any longer, we would have been bad storytellers.”

And this new path, which will find Castle and Beckett entering a relationship together in season 5? It’s full with opportunity, he says. “It was important to open up the storytelling. We had done as much storytelling as we thought we could do credibly with not having them together. So the characters either had to go their separate ways or get together,” he says. “We thought there was a lot of fun to be had mining their relationship once they were together because no relationship goes smoothly, and they’re fundamentally different people.” READ FULL STORY

'Castle' boss: Season finale will 'fundamentally alter' Beckett and Castle's relationship

It seems like just weeks ago that Castle aired its season 4 premiere, with eager fans waiting to see the fall out of Castle’s vocal expression of love. But in typical Castle/Beckett fashion, things didn’t play out exactly how we expected.

Season four found the pair largely avoiding the issue — and, in Beckett’s case, dealing with emotional problems along the way. But it was clear to everyone around them that they were as crazy as ever about one another. Tonight, they finally make it clear to each other, as EW showed you on Friday in this exclusive clip. “The episode is really about what secrets come out,” says executive producer Andrew Marlowe.

And those secrets are multi-layered. Not only will Castle and Beckett finally hash it out over their feelings (“She doesn’t know that he knows that she heard the ‘I love you.’ That comes out,” he says), but when a case finds Beckett once again working her mother’s murder case, Castle might have to come clean about another secret he’s been keeping.

'NCIS,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'NCIS: LA,' 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Big Bang Theory': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

The realization that so many shows are coming to a close hit me today, and once I stopped sobbing, I realized that as we head into summer, this might be the prime time to do a little self-evaluation!

So if you’re up for it — or just counting the hours till you clock out — I invite you to take a questionnaire on Spoiler Room. Your feedback matters to me, so if you can find the time to do it, I’d appreciate it!

'Castle' season finale: 'I love you -- but you already know that, don't you?' -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

For the first time in a long time, I’m at a loss for words. But I suppose if I have to say something about the following exclusive clip from Monday’s season finale of Castle, it’s: wow.

Any fan of the ABC crime drama knows that episodes that find Beckett chasing info about her mother’s murder are always a highlight, and this year’s season finale is no exception. There’s always a new, shocking reveal waiting for the audience when this issue is brought up, and emotionally, it’s always a hot button issue for Castle and Beckett, particularly because Castle knows that Beckett tends to become dangerously obsessed with the case. Earlier this season, her infatuation was accompanied by a mysterious warning given to Castle: She’s getting too close to the answer — or, as Castle puts it in the clip, “If you don’t stop, they will kill you, Kate.”

Torn by his loyalty to his more-than-a-friend and his desire to keep her safe, Castle is forced to lay a lot of cards out on the table in Monday’s episode. And. I. Can’t. Wait.

It will surprise me if you’ve gotten this far in the text without pressing play already, but in case you haven’t, I invite you to do so below! And make sure to watch Castle’s season finale on Monday at 10 p.m. ET.

'Castle' guest star Adam Baldwin talks 'turning the tables' on 'Firefly' costar Nathan Fillion

Nathan Fillion is in for some “sweet, sweet revenge,” as his former Firefly costar Adam Baldwin calls it.

“It was great to be able to turn the tables on him finally. I was playing the subservient Jayne Cobb to his Mal Reynolds for a while and to get a chance to be a character who was a bit over his rank and be able to push him around a bit was just liberating,” he says. “Plus, the opportunity to work with Nathan again — he’s such a loving and giving actor for anybody that he works with and especially for the old [Firefly] crew.”

On tonight’s Castle, Fillion’s Richard Castle meets Baldwin’s Detective Nathan Slaughter, a no-nonsense badge from the gang unit who takes the writer along for a few adventures, acting as a pseudo-muse in place of Beckett. (She and Castle are still on the outs.) But Beckett he is not. “[Slaughter] uses unorthodox methodology to get results,” teases Baldwin. (See a preview below.) “When he’s given the opportunity to bring Castle along and show him the ropes — for selfish reasons, of course — Castle finds it a bit repulsive but also a bit attractive. There’s that thrilling heroics that he gets to be a part of.” READ FULL STORY

'Castle,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Hawaii Five-0,' 'Once Upon a Time': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

I had a revelation recently when chatting with my colleague Mandi Bierly about her sharing a dish of lobster mac and cheese with Pauly Shore during a recent interview. (You could ask her for details on that story, but that’s really all there is to it.): My life is weird.

In the past week, I’ve party-stalked Charlie Sheen (with no luck getting two minutes alone for an interview), talked about Titanic with Ringer‘s Ioan Gruffudd (he’s in it!), watched Megan Mullally steal from my colleagues, and hung out with the cast of the fantastic new drama Scandal. Yes, life is strange. But also wonderful. I guess this is my long-winded way of saying thanks for being part of my wonderful, strange life, Roomies.

And let me return the favor by seeking out some scoop for you. E-mail all requests to or ask me on Twitter. See you next week!


'Castle' boss on the next few 'challenging' episodes, plus scoop on Adam Baldwin's guest spot

Richard Castle’s hurting — and it’s not easy to watch. In fact, it’s downright heartbreaking.

After learning in last week’s episode that Beckett (Stana Katic) remembered everything about being shot (including, you’ll recall, Castle’s confession of love), Castle (Nathan Fillion) is looking for a way to deal with an influx of disappointment. His solution? Apparently flaunting a blonde in front of Beckett in tonight’s episode! But there’s so much more underneath his playboy guise, says executive producer and creator Andrew Marlowe.

“I think he feels like if he confronts her, it’s just gonna be a big ego blow, so it’s better for him to swallow it at this point, which gives us a little bit of drama in the next couple episodes,” he says. And with only four episodes (including tonight’s) left in the rest of the season, the drama will come fast and furious, stemming first from the fact that poor Beckett has no idea why Castle is giving her the cold shoulder. But her confusion and — in a way — her sense of loss from his apparent “drifting away” could prompt Beckett to make some bold actions. “She’s wondering if she needs to declare herself, and she’s feeling ready…but then he’s acting out. So his behavior is going to be a little challenging to her, and it puts us in an interesting place for the next couple episodes,” Marlowe says.

Stars from 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Castle,' and 'Revenge' talk what's next in Spoiler Room: Video Edition


While on the set of The Vampire Diaries about six weeks ago, I took note of a familiar face walking around set: Robert Ri’chard, who plays Jaime.

Now, at the time, we’d only recently been introduced to the boy, who is the adoptive son of Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) mom, Abby (Persia White). But seeing him lurk around set was a pretty good indication he’d be back. And he is!

This Thursday, in fact, and from what Kat Graham indicates, it’s to connect on a new, romantic level. (They’re not blood, so we’re OK with that, right?) But that’s just one of the things in store for the Bennett family. Candice Accola was also nice enough to share some details on that in the latest Spoiler Room: Video Edition, which you can check out below.

Also in store? Some scoop from Tamala Jones on the upcoming Castle episode, “The Limey.” (Hint: Lainey’s as ready as we are for some Caskett!) and Gabriel Mann teases a big twist with Nolan on Revenge that we won’t see coming. (Could it be revealed in the much-hyped flashback episode? Could be, could be.)

Anyway, enjoy, folks. See you back here on Friday for your regular column. In the meantime, send me an e-mail if you have a scoop request — or if you want to play Draw Something with me! (I wish I was kidding… but, tragically, I’m just that sad.) READ FULL STORY

'Pretty Little Liars,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Secret Circle,' 'Revenge': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Howdy, Roomies.

It’s that time of the week again, so I hope you enjoy some of the juicy tidbits in this week’s installment. And with finales just around the corner, I imagine it’s all just going to get juicier as the weeks tick by.

But on that note, if there’s something I’m missing, don’t hesitate to put in a scoop request! ( And a million thank yous to those who already write in! Wait, let’s make that a thousand. We’re in a recession after all. I have to be prudent.


What’s better than an in-office visit from a Pretty Little Liar? If I may douchily answer myself: A visit from TWO Pretty Little Liars. And that’s exactly what happened to me yesterday when Lucy Hale and Troian Bellisario stopped in to film a quick video (which I’ll share with you Monday!), make me laugh (you’ll see…), and answer some of your burning questions!

'Castle' star Stana Katic: 'Caskett fans will be very pleased by the end of the season.' Plus, more scoop! -- EW VIDEO

The March 19 episode of Castle, screened tonight for a packed theater during PaleyFest in Los Angeles, has all the things that make a great standalone hour.

There’s a mind-bending case (involving a murder at a Dancing With the Stars-esque show), some hilarious interactions between Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Huertas), a few great scenes involving Martha (Susan Sullivan) and a rival from her past, and, of course, a revealing moment or two between one of TV’s best sort-of couples, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic). But executive producer and creator Andrew Marlowe had a warning for the crowd before he showed the episode: Take some time to bask in the familiar lightness of the episode — because things are going to get heavy. “[It's] the last normal episode before the story weather hits,” he said during his introduction. Gulp.

Of course, that’s pretty much how Castle operates every year, but this season, more than ever, has played with the build up between Castle and Beckett. At the end of last season, Castle whispered to injured Kate that he loved her and neither party has addressed it since. (Castle is under the impression she didn’t hear it, but the audience knows that is not true.)

So will the end of the season bring around the payoff fans have been seeking? You bet, says Marlowe. “This has been a season of secrets. Castle and Beckett are both keeping significant secrets from each other…and they start to come out. And both characters — and all the characters around them — will have to deal with the emotional consequences of it,” he said. “We’re really looking forward to bringing those episodes to life. We think it will be a lot of fun for loyal fans of the show to see these characters tested.”

In fact, before the event, Stana Katic confidently said that fans of the pairing won’t be disappointed with the outcome the show has in store. “Caskett fans will be very pleased by the end of the season,” she said coyly. And for anyone that follows casting news, that promise holds even greater value now that we know Spartacus hottie Brett Tucker, who will come on board for an episode, won’t pose a serious threat. (But for more on his guest spot, see our chat with Katic below:) READ FULL STORY

'Castle' scoop: 'Spartacus' actor to team with Castle and Beckett
