'Smallville,' 'Supernatural,' 'Burn Notice,' 'The Killing': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room
What a lovely day it is for television news, Roomies!
I’ll keep today’s usually-rambly intro short: You want scoop? Ask! All you have to do is email me at email@example.com or find me on Twitter (@EWSandraG), where you will see I’ve already started celebrating Supernatural‘s upcoming Western episode (see below for scoop!). Don’t see yours below? Come back Friday; there’s a good chance it might be there then.
‘SMALLVILLE’: BOOSTER GOLD’S BIG ARRIVAL … AND BIG EGO
Smallville‘s better-than-ever farewell season continues Friday with the appearance of Booster Gold and the Blue Beetle/Jaime Reyes in an episode that will have both fans of the mythology and beloved Clois squealing in delight. As teased in previews, the episode indeed features an iconic phonebooth transformation (but not into the full tights-and-cape). The moment is all you’d hope it to be, but what got this nerd really excited? The steps that were taken toward creating a critical part of mythology: our hero’s name. Also great: Lois’ interactions with Jaime, Clark’s almost child-like reaction to Booster douche (who is actually as frustrating as he his hilarious), and the arrival of clumsy Kent. Take it all in, Smallville fans, because we’re in the homestretch. Luckily, the show’s been making it more than worth the 10-year investment. READ FULL STORY »

Happy Tuesday, gang.
I hope you enjoy the offerings this morning, but before you dig in, an announcement: Friday’s mega scoops (the paragraphs you see before “side dishes”) will be READER’S CHOICE and will be chosen purely based on your e-mail requests. Most requested shows win. I’ll be picking three.
So take a moment to dream. If you could have scoop on ANY show, which would it be, and what would you want to know. Again, these will be based purely on volume of requests. (Usually, I pick based on buzzworthiness.)
So cast your vote by emailing me a request to firstname.lastname@example.org or request via Twitter (@EWSandraG).
See you Friday! READ FULL STORY »
We’ve been hearing about Castle‘s Los Angeles excursion, but now comes the first look at the episode airing May 2. In the episode, called “To Love and Die in L.A.,” Beckett (Stana Katic) goes rogue and follows a suspect in the shooting death of her former partner to Los Angeles against orders. Castle (Nathan Fillion) tags along, and they end up visiting the set of the Heat Wave movie and enlist the cast to help break the case. Sadly, Laura Prepon won’t recur as the actress playing Nikki Heat, the heroine of Castle‘s crime novels inspired by Beckett. But we will get to meet the two actors playing the fictionalized versions of Esposito and Ryan. (That’s some solid casting with Justice Gamble and Ryan Deal, respectively).
Rock star Gene Simmons pops up as himself and the owner of the Beverly Hills mansion where the victim was living — we’ve got your first look at his guest spot above. READ FULL STORY »
Below is what I’ve dug up this week, but remember that I use your inquiries as a guide. Let me know what shows you want to know about! And you can do so (as always) in two ways: via e-mail email@example.com and via Twitter @EWSandraG.
FRINGE: EPS TEASE TRIPPIEST EPISODE SINCE ‘BROWN BETTY’
Full disclosure: I was originally going to preview tonight’s episode of Fringe for you, but honestly, I’m in such a pleasant mood over the renewal that I say we move on to bigger matters, like episode 19, airing April 15.
Before the big news, Jeff Pinkner and Joel H. Wyman hopped on the phone with me to tease an episode I’ve been dying to know more about ever since I heard a rumor that it would be Astrid-centered, which, it turns out, isn’t entirely the case. Oh, I’ll just let them explain. READ FULL STORY »
Hottie doctor Jason George is ditching the South American jungle and heading stateside for a guest spot on Castle.
In the episode, titled “To Love and Die in L.A.,” Beckett heads to Los Angeles to track down the killer of her former mentor on the force. Meanwhile, Castle tags along to help his partner and also takes the opportunity to stop by the set of Heat Wave.
George plays an entrepreneur who meets the pair along the way, and he proves “to be a key character in solving their new case,” a source reveals. Previously announced guest star Dominic Purcell (Prison Break) will also appear, playing a movie producer.
Happy about this sorta-not-really crossover news, Castle/OTM fans?

Jane Seymour, noble Dr. Quinn, medicine woman. She could never harm a thing. Or could she?
You won’t be so sure during tonight’s meta-tastic episode of Castle‘s “One Life to Lose,” which follows Castle and Beckett as they solve a murder that has taken place on the set of a soap opera called Temptation Lane. Seymour plays Gloria, the suspicious mother of the victim who finds herself (in true soap fashion) among a large group of suspects entangled in the mystery.
“As far as we can tell, she really is not necessarily all we imagine her to be. There’s more to Gloria than meets the eye,” she says. And that “more” is nothing good, but for Seymour, who will next be seen in the indie flick Lake Effect, that’s the best part.
“People always think that because of Dr. Quinn that I just play nice family stuff. But the truth of the matter is that East of Eden was a very successful thing for me in the past,” she says, referring to her manipulative character on the miniseries, Cathy Ames. “I’ve played a lot of very evil people in my time.” And after tonight, we’ll all be reminded that she does it rather well, too.
If you’ve read this week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story with Nathan Fillion, you know that he and his Castle costar Stana Katic have different opinions on when Castle and Beckett should get together. She thinks sooner (Moonlighting curse be damned); he thinks later. We asked them to plead their cases, then got show creator Andrew Marlowe to weigh in (his opinion is, after all, the one that really counts). Read their arguments below. We’re taking it to a vote.

Nathan Fillion talks fan campaign to resurrect 'Firefly': 'I think that that's love. I don't think that's fanaticism'
The first time we talked to Nathan Fillion for this week’s cover of Entertainment Weekly, it was shortly after 9 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 6. Fans of Firefly, which was canceled by Fox in 2002 after 11 episodes, will recognize that date and time as the day reruns debuted on the Science Channel. Fillion did not. “Is that tonight?” he asked. ”I knew it was going to record because I got the old search term ‘Nathan Fillion’ [programmed on my TiVo], so if I’m doin’ somethin’ it pops up. But am I doing anything special? No, I am not doing anything special. I thought I might go to a movie tonight.”
That sounds like the (healthy) response of a man who’s let go of the past, but, of course, one of the reasons fans love Fillion is because he hasn’t. Speaking to EW.com in February about Science Channel’s plans to rerun the Joss Whedon space Western — and seriously, how many actors with a current show, ABC’s Castle, averaging 10.6 million viewers do interviews for reruns? — Fillion innocently mentioned that were he to win $300 million in the California lottery, he would buy the rights from Fox and don Capt. Mal Reynolds’ tight pants again. READ FULL STORY »

[WARNING: Mild spoilers ahead.] Yes, tonight’s episode of Castle is everything it’s been touted to be: a high-stakes race to save New York City from extreme devastation. It’s a nail-biter unlike anything we’ve seen on the show up to this point, but it’s also, at its heart, an episode of Castle. And guest star Adrian Pasdar, who joins the series for two episodes as Homeland Security agent Mark Fallon, told EW that it was that fact — not getting a chance to play a sharp, tough-talking agent – that was most satisfying of all.
“It was such great privilege to be part of the show in many ways, but [the storyline] did service the overall arc of what the show Castle is meant to be. And I think that’s a great thing,” he said.
In the episode, Castle and Beckett need all the help they can get as they race to recover a radioactive bomb. Agent Fallon tries to be that help, but soon finds himself at odds with the twosome. READ FULL STORY »
