Got anything on Revenge? — Ciara
You may be asking yourself why Jack suddenly becomes friends with a cop (Client List’s Brian Hallisay) after finding himself on the wrong side of the law last season. That’s easy: Jack is actually putting on a badge. However, despite his new position, Charlotte has been unable to forgive him for his part in her kidnapping, which will put them at odds at the annual Memorial Day party. (Oh yes, the party is still happening, it’s just being hosted by someone else while Victoria is in the loony bin.) READ FULL STORY

Can you tease how Amelia will fit in on Grey’s Anatomy next season? — Carla
How she’ll fit into Grey Sloan will all depend on whether or not Derek takes the D.C. job, which causes some “frustrating complications,” executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells me. But Amelia will make a surprising connection at the hospital, just not with who you’d think. “There’s a moment early on when she finds herself the keeper of some secrets that Richard didn’t necessarily want her to know by being at an AA meeting that he didn’t know she was at,” Rhimes says. “It draws her into the world in a deeper way than she anticipated.” Hmm, I wonder what that secret could be.

'Criminal Minds' sneak peek: Shirtless Morgan gets put on doggie duty -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Criminal Minds is showing us a new side of Derek Morgan in this exclusive clip from tonight’s new episode — and no, we’re not talking about his shirtless torso. We’re referencing the first peek at Derek Morgan: Attentive boyfriend.

“It’s about time!” jokes Shemar Moore of the introduction of Morgan’s previously mentioned — but never seen — new girlfriend Savannah, played by Rochelle Aytes of Mistresses. “I joke all the time that Derek’s the most sexually repressed character on TV.”

Not anymore, though. And Moore says he’s more than happy to explore that side of the often intense character. “Over the last eight seasons, you’ve learned about Morgan’s family and childhood, but nothing about the romantic side of him. Now, we get to see another side of Morgan.”

Moore says they hope to have Aytes back before the end of the season, but “there’s no need to plan a wedding or anything as we’ve only been dating a few months.”

Take a look at a clip below!

'Criminal Minds' surprise: Paget Brewster to return in 200th episode

Emily Prentiss is coming back to the BAU…for one (very special) episode.

CBS announced today that former Criminal Minds star Paget Brewster, who exited the series last year, will return for a guest appearance in the show’s upcoming 200th episode.

“Our 200th episode is going to be a special show,” executive producer Erica Messer said in a release. “We can’t imagine telling this story without Paget being present.”

As previously reported, the milestone hour takes a glimpse into the past and sheds light onto what happened to JJ Jareau (A.J. Cook) during her year away from the BAU. It will also prove valuable in the team’s efforts to solve a present day case.

The episode will air later this season.

'NCIS,' 'Supernatural,' 'NCIS: LA,' 'Sons of Anarchy': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Howdy, Roomies!

It’s that time of the week again. Excited? You should be! I am. I’ve also had a lot of caffeine this week while covering the Television Critics Association press tour with my colleagues, so … this should be interesting.

As always, send your questions to spoilerroom@ew.com.

‘NCIS’ BOSS: ‘EVERYONE HAS TO WATCH THE FIRST TWO EPISODES’
I hear ya, NCIS fans. The departure of Cote de Pablo is an unfortunate turn of events, to say the least. NCIS EP Gary Glasberg was “saddened” by the situation, too, telling me earlier this week during CBS’ annual bash for television critics that “it’s the last thing we planned on.” That said, he promised, “At the end of the day, I’m really happy with what we came up with. Everyone has to watch the first two episodes.”

Why? Well, for one, he teased, the episodes were completely reworked in order to accommodate this curve ball. “I literally had to lock myself away and everything I was planning on had to be blown out and I had to start all over again,” he says of the news, which came after plans for the season had already begun. “Again, it’s not what we had hoped for. This family — this NCIS family that exists between [the characters] — is so special and so unique, and this was Cote’s decision and we have to respect that … but some really fantastic work is going to come out of what occurred. We have some really terrific stuff planned for the year.”

So what ARE those plans? For one, Ziva will be “prominent” in the second episode of the season and “it’s a really touching, emotional story and I promise the viewers will not be disappointed — especially the Tiva fans, as we say. I hope it’s everything they want it to be.”

He adds: “I want some of it to be a surprise, but I think people will be pleased at the end of the day with where it’s left both emotionally and psychologically — and not only for Tony, but Gibbs, Abby, and everybody. That’s a big part of what I was taking into consideration — really understanding how the people and the fans are so connected to our characters. You really have to honor that.”

Who’s already crying?

'Criminal Minds' season finale: Hotch and Beth's reunion interrupted by [spoiler] -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

All season long, Criminal Minds has been teasing the arrival of The Replicator, and this Wednesday on the two-hour season finale, we’ll finally be able to put a face to the name. But first, the Hotchner brothers are going to find themselves dealing with a tricky situation.

As you can see in this exclusive preview from the episode, Hotchner is called away from a seemingly lovely reunion with Beth (guest star Bellamy Young of Scandal) after receiving an urgent call from his younger brother, Sean, who may have gotten himself mixed up in a crime. (Per the episode description, Sean’s predicament will likely tie into a string of ecstasy-related deaths.)

'Criminal Minds' preview: Shemar Moore on revisiting Morgan's past

It’s been six years since Criminal Minds viewers first delved into Morgan’s dark past as a victim of sexual abuse, and in tonight’s episode, he’s forced to face it once again.

In “Restoration,” the BAU finds itself in Morgan’s old Chicago neighborhood on the trail of an unsub who is targeting middle-aged men and may have a connection to Carl Buford, the man who molested Morgan as a child. “I am proud of [the episode] as far as what I got to do as an actor but I’m more proud of what the [episode] represents — the subject matter and…just the delicacy of what we were portraying,” Shemar Moore says.

'Criminal Minds' preview: Ken Olin turns to Hotch and Co. for help -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

On this week’s Criminal Minds, Hotch and Co. will head to the eastern shore of Maryland where a father (Ken Olin) needs the team’s help to search for his two teenage daughters. The twist in this tale? The girls’ mother went missing exactly a year before.

“The idea is what’s going on with the father? Is he a serial offender or is he the unluckiest man on the planet and the victim of a serial offender?” executive producer Erica Messer says of the episode, which she wrote and was also the first episode of the show to be directed by star Thomas Gibson, who Messer says “rose to the occasion” on his first outing.

“I think it was great for Thomas who’s, obviously, been with us from day one, to sit in the meetings we sit in 24 times a year to make these episodes and to really see the behind the scenes,” says Messer of Gibson, who previously directed two episodes of his previous show, Dharma & Greg. “Of course he’s seen it for 180 episodes on this series and on others, but it’s a totally different thing to be in that seat where, as a director, you’re responsible for every single thing on that screen. That means there’s a lot of questions on your way and a lot of responsibility and a lot riding on your decisions and choices.” READ FULL STORY

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?
