'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! (spoilerroom@ew.com) 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.

‘PRETTY LITTLE LIARS': THREE BURNING QUESTIONS ANSWERED!

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

Castle and Beckett are getting a visit from Scotland Yard!

Spartacus: Vengeance actor Brett Tucker is set to team up with the pair for an upcoming episode this season, playing Simon Hunt, a hottie detective from Scotland Yard who is trying to find the murderer who killed his friend’s daughter. He will appear in episode 20 of this season, set to air some time in April.

Tucker currently appears in Starz’s swords-and-sandals action series as Varinius and last year appeared in two episodes of jungle drama Off the Map.

Castle airs Mondays on ABC, with last night’s episode drawing around 9.1 million viewers.

'Castle': Jennifer Beals teases two-part episode, apologizes for causing Beckett fans 'anxiety'

Sophia Turner (Jennifer Beals) has been tasked with saving the United States from going to war, and she intends to fulfill her mission. But she’ll have to do so alongside a very important person from her past: Richard Castle.

Tonight’s episode of Castle finds Castle (Nathan Fillion) coming face-to-face with his former flame as the team works to stop an event from occurring that would “plunge the U.S. into world war,” says Beals. But her arrival also stirs up emotions for Beckett (Stana Katic) after she learns that Turner was Castle’s first muse and he shadowed her while creating another character, Clara Strike. The distinction, however, is that Castle has gone through significant changes in the years since they were in a relationship, shares Beals.

“You will see how he’s changed since his time with Sophia and his time with Beckett,” she says. “You also get more information about this past…[but] there’s definitely a ticking clock. It’s about getting the work done.”

And prepping for the role required a bit of work on Beals’s part as well, but she was coy about the details. “There were other things I had to prepare for that I can’t reveal to you because they have to do with the plot and what happens later. But I had to study international conspiracy theory. I was like ‘Wow. I guess that’s where Google comes in.'”

Overall, she says, “It was fun to bring something to the show that would maybe complicate the Becket-Castle relationship a little bit and give Beckett more information and give the audience more information about Castle.”

The two-part episode begins tonight and the conclusion will air next week. Beals warns, “The second episode is out of control…My apologies to all the fans who are huge Beckett fans. I apologize for any type of anxiety the character might cause you.”

Happy Friday, roomies.

It’s that time of the week again, and by that, I mean it’s time for you to feast your eyes on the last important task I do before spending 48 hours eating various cereals on my couch. (I’m so glamorous.)

‘NCIS': A LOOK AHEAD WITH  EP GARY GLASBERG
There’s been a lot of self-reflection happening on NCIS as of late. (In fact, the show’s entire 200th episode was dedicated to a storyline that found Gibbs on a personal journey unlike any we’d ever seen.) And as you may have guessed, this is all no coincidence. In fact, EP Gary Glasberg tells me that all the threads we’ve seen thus far will weave together for this year’s season finale. Vague enough for you? Maybe he can help elaborate: “There’s definitely a theme to this season about decisions and [about] the roads that people have taken and choices in their lives,” he says. “I hope that has come through; it certainly did in the 200th, But I think that’s been the case — whether we’re talking about realizations, like Abby and her brother or a lot of the things that have come up with Tony and Ziva as well.” READ FULL STORY

'Castle': Beckett and Castle get hands on (literally!) while dog-sitting -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

Prepare yourself for a 10.0 on the cuteness scale.

EW has already shared a few details about this week’s episode of Castle, which finds Castle and Beckett investigating the death of a famous dog trainer, and as a result, stuck babysitting a homeless pooch. (The episode also guest-stars White Collar-One Tree Hill alum Hilarie Burton.) And, as this exclusive clip shows, it leads to a bit of a tender moment. (HAND HOLDING!)

I won’t continue because if I say more, I’ll spoil the moment. But click below if your curiosity is piqued. READ FULL STORY

'Castle' scoop: Castle and Beckett will share a [spoiler] in an upcoming episode!

A new challenge will unleash new emotions between Castle and Beckett in the second half of ABC’s faultlessly fun crime drama, but it’s probably less romantic than you might think it is. (Or is it?)

While chatting about what Castle fans can expect from the next batch of new episodes, executive producer Andrew Marlowe said the show’s reality TV-themed episode, which will feature a guest spot from White Collar and One Tree Hill alum Hilarie Burton, will find the partners in a situation they’ve never experienced before: sharing custody of a four-legged friend. “There’s some fun to be had with the Castle-Beckett relationship [because] our victim is a celebrity dog-show host and famous dog trainer. And in the aftermath of his death, his beloved golden retriever is left family-less. So Castle and Beckett get to enjoy sharing custody of the dog and I think it brings out stuff in their relationship that’s a lot of fun,” Marlowe said. READ FULL STORY

'Castle' casting scoop: 'White Collar' actress Hilarie Burton tapped for Kardashian-esque guest role

I’ve always wanted to see a White Collar/Castle crossover and it looks like I’m an inch closer to my dream.

White Collar actress Hilarie Burton is set to guest star in an upcoming episode of ABC’s Castle, EW has learned. Burton, who also played Peyton on CW’s One Tree Hill for six seasons, will play Kay Cappuccio, a reality TV star with good looks, charisma, and a knockout bod. According to casting scoop, the tabloid darling has “achieved significant fame and fortune without possessing any discernible skill or talent” and “is famous mostly for being famous.” Sounds like someone we know… not that I’m naming names — because I already did in the headline.

The character, however, is more complex than some might think, as she both relishes the spotlight and “at the same time feels like a prisoner of her own celebrity lifestyle.”

Burton will appear in episode 13, “An Embarrassment of Bitches,” set to air in 2012.

Castle‘s Monday episode, which found Beckett struggling with her post-traumatic stress disorder, was up 13 percent from the previous week, with a 2.7/7 rating in the 18-49 demo and 11.9 million viewers.

'Castle' star Stana Katic on tonight's important scene that will alter Castle and Beckett's future

Stana Katic had her plate full when producers handed her the script for tonight’s episode “Kill Shot.” But she was more than up for the challenge of having to tackle one of Beckett’s most emotionally raw episodes yet. “I was really excited that we are continuing to delve deeper into the characters and keeping some of those major events we’ve played going and giving them a longer life, which is something that’s true this season,” she says. She’s of course referring to the consequences of Beckett’s shooting last season at the hands of a sniper, which this season, has sent the detective into a tailspin.

Tonight, Beckett gets out of control. If she’s not panicking during key moments, she’s uncharacteristically turning to alcohol to numb the pain she’s been reluctant to deal with. For Katic, the episode is full of telling moments. “I think this episode highlights the fact that she’s that modern-day hero who is not perfect, but trying to do her best,” she says. “She doesn’t always make the best choices or the right choices, but she’s trying to grow and push for her better self. It’s a character and hero people can relate to. I don’t think we have Supermen anymore. We have people who are flawed and those are interesting people to watch.” (See a clip from the episode here.)
