'Fringe' exclusive: See the movie-style trailer for Thursday's epic ep 'Entrada'

The new episode of Fringe on Thursday night at 9 p.m. promises to be a pivotal outing in this sensational if (criminally!) under-watched season, electric with ideas and emotion. When we last saw Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson), he had just been tipped off that the Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) he’s been swapping spit with isn’t exactly the Olivia Dunham he thinks she is. Meanwhile, in the “over there” parallel world, “over here” Olivia, now operating with awareness of her true self, was busted by “Walternate” (John Noble), who now knows that she knows who she really is.

And so we come to a turning point in the season’s saga, and to properly mark the occasion, Fox has created an appropriately grandiose movie-style trailer for the episode, making its premiere exclusively here in this space. I think this exchange sums up the intense vibe. Fauxlivia: “Are you going to kill me?” Peter: “No. I’m going to get answers. And if I find out you’ve done anything to Olivia? Then I’m gonna kill you.” Also, the bone saw? Chilling. Those of you skilled and equipped to decipher reverse-recorded audio messages, get ready to decode — and please, share your findings in the message board below. READ FULL STORY

'Dexter,' 'Fringe,' 'Psych,' 'Grey's,' more: Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Spoiler-RoomImage Credit: Adam Taylor/ABC; Randy Tepper/Showtime; Liane Hentscher/Fox; Alan Zenuk/USA NetworkIt’s a good week in scoopsville, Roomies. Along with teasers for the shows listed above, we also have intel from Kevin McKidd about more dark and twistiness coming on Grey’s Anatomy; Supernatural showrunner Sera Gamble opening up about Castiel; and Zachary Levi on celebrating Thanksgiving Chuck-style. If that’s not something to be thankful for, nothing is.

Keep sending your burning questions about upcoming episodes of your favorite shows to @EW or @EWSandraG. Direct messages work, too.

If you thought the Altivia stuff so far was as tense as it could get, wait until you see the Dec. 2 episode. I promise it will knock you (and Altyou) on your butt in the first minutes of the episode and keep you there the entire hour. The tension begins with Peter getting a message relayed to him from Olivia. The question is: Does he believe it? Should he? Meanwhile, a phrase Olivia once told Peter will play a huge part in this episode, and there’s a blink-and-you’ll miss it tender moment between Peter and Walter. Speaking of, Walter introduces us to the term “vagenda” (use your imagination), and we learn of a new (old) device that has the ability to communicate with the other side. Most importantly, to answer a question posed to us by Twitter pal @val04, those of you hoping for Olivia’s return to our world (erm, everyone) should tune in to this episode. Just sayin’.

'Fringe': Lance Reddick dishes on tonight's Broyles-centric episode, and how the real-life 'Donnie Brasco' inspires him

With Fringe closing in on a major turning point in its Crisis On Infinite Earths (Or Just Two) storyline, and with the J.J. Abrams sci-fi series signaling that it’s about to push into a new layer of mystery mythology (Who are “The First People?” Are they connected to The Observer? Is Sam Weiss one of them? I want to know!), tonight’s new episode lays the groundwork for the midseason denoument by showcasing Phillip Broyles. Not the “our world” Special Agent Broyles, the charismatic Don’t mess with me suit that leads the FBI’s hush-hush EWRT Fringe division hidden away in a Harvard laboratory. No, tonight we’re going “over there” and digging into Colonel Broyles, the charismatic, Don’t mess with me military man who leads the very public, EWRT Fringe division located at the base of the Statue of Liberty. (Note: EWRT = Emergency Weirdness Response Team. Every world needs one, including our own, especially given the baffling and threatening reality-eroding situation currently facing our culture.)

The episode, entitled “The Abducted,” offers a peek into Col. Broyles’ private life, and as such functions as a mirror world analog to last season’s Broyles-centric outing, “Earthling.” READ FULL STORY

Rumor Patrol: 'Fringe,' '90210,' 'Bones,' and more!

True! Back to the Future‘s Doc Brown has been cast as a musical hero of Walter’s who’s been in a nursing home and becomes the subject of a Fringe investigation. “Christopher plays Roscoe Joyce, a keyboardist for Walter’s favorite 1970’s band Violet Sedan Chair,” explains exec producer J.H. Wyman. Fellow EP Jeff Pinkner adds, “The lives of these two men, who have never met before, overlap in strange and unexpected ways.”

A Bones spin-off is in the works
While it’s true that series creator Hart Hanson is developing an offshoot that would revolve around the central character in Walter Sherman’s Locator novels, the new guy — a recluse who can basically find anything — will not be introduced in a December episode of Bones, sources confirm. My guess is we’ll meet him in January or February. READ FULL STORY

Question: Rumor around the Glee circuit is that Quinn and Rachel lock lips in episode 6. Any truth to that? —Joan
Ausiello: Sorry, no. If it’s any consolation, it looks like the frenemies get fairly close to first base in the new GQ. Speaking of Glee, I can now confirm that the show is planning a Christmas episode. I don’t have any other details at the moment. I do, however, have a suggestion for Ryan Murphy: Please give us (read: me) an It’s a Wonderful Life homage with Sue at the center. I, er, we don’t ask for much.

Question: Glee scoop, please! —Jeffrey
Ausiello: Someone’s about to get expelled!

Question: One Tree Hill. You’re a stingy Smurf when it comes to scoop on this gem of a show. —La-roo
Ausiello: Sources close to the National Weather Center confirm that Mother Nature is doing me a solid and sending a major hurricane Hill‘s way before season’s end. READ FULL STORY

Question: Let’s assume Chord Overstreet’s Sam is not a love interest for Glee’s Kurt, and Darren Criss is. Well, who will Sam be paired with? —Jeff
I’m hearing single mom Quinn. But if you’ve got a better idea, the comments section below has your name written all over it, Jeff.

Question: Is Mike Chang going to get a solo on Glee? I’m swooning over his dancing (and now his abs!), but a solo would just be the icing on the cake. —Kraig
He’ll get the next best thing to a solo in episode 4: a duet with Tina!

Question: With the Britney tribute episode and talk of possible Michael Jackson or Bruce Springsteen episodes, when the hell are the folks at Glee going to do a second Madonna episode? I want my Madge! —Dan
Not this season, apparently. Word on the street is that the Super Bowl episode will be the last tribute we’ll see this season. Of course, given the record ratings the show got with last night’s Britneypalooza, the word on the street could change, and fast. READ FULL STORY

Question: Okay, so in order for me to make it till Thursday, I need some Grey’s Anatomy scoop—specifically on Mer-Der. —Olivia
By the time Meredith tells Derek about her pregnancy and subsequent miscarriage in next week’s episode, she will have kept both secrets for a grand total of three months. Why wait so long? “The man was shot, and he’s already feeling [responsible] for getting a bunch of people killed,” explains series creator Shonda Rhimes. “So for her to tell him that the shooting also caused her miscarriage seems a little bit cruel. He doesn’t need one more thing to worry about.” Makes sense to me!

Question: I’d love a little Grey’s Anatomy scoopbit. —Christine
Yet another Buffy grad is checking into Seattle Grace. Amber Benson (ex-Tara) will guest-star in this season’s seventh episode as the estranged daughter of one of Cristina’s patients.

Question: Any scoop on Ziva’s story line on NCIS? —Jennifer
During November sweeps, Ziva “comes face-to-face with her father for the first time since her return from Israel,” reveals exec producer Shane Brennan. “It’s an emotion-charged reunion in a two-part episode that also reveals much about the enigmatic Eli David and one of the other team members.” READ FULL STORY

'Fringe' Scoop: Five season 3 spoilers!

I’ve got some news for Regular-World and Alternate-World Fringe fans alike. On a conference call today, showrunners Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman revealed new info on the eagerly awaited upcoming third season of the universe-skipping sci-fi series, which premieres on Sept. 23. So grab a Walter-approved snack—preferably a Ho Ho—and read on. 

1. The bell may have not yet tolled for Bell. Although Walter’s former lab partner William Bell may have died in the season finale, the exec producers were quick to point out that nothing is final in the world of Fringe. “Leonard Nimoy has retired from acting,” says Pinkner. “But if Leonard chooses to come back, there is a story in place that we’d love to tell.” Adds Wyman: “I think it’s fair to say that you have not experienced the last of William Bell.” READ FULL STORY

First Look: Decoding the new 'Fringe' cast photo

fringe-dinerImage Credit: FoxIt’s exactly one week until Fringe returns and that can only mean one thing: Time for another first look! You’re looking at the second official group photo for the Fox thriller’s third season (here’s the first), which premieres next Thursday. Two key observations: Bolivia appears to have rejoined Walternate in Overthereland, and Astrid is once again throwing some ‘tude around. Not sure what her deal is, but I like it! Thoughts? Opinions? Theories? Share ‘em below!

Question: I know you are busy and all with getting your fall season tactics together, but can you please give me some Private Practice scoop? —Vernice
Fall season tactics? You tickle me, Vernice. Let’s grab a drink sometime. Here’s your Private spoiler: Something tragic will happen to a major character during November sweeps. It’s probably the darkest story PP has ever tackled—and this show has tackled some dark stories. Consider yourself warned.

Question: Seriously, no Fringe scoop last week? Why do I even bother to read this column? —Brett
That’s between you, your therapist, and the lovely people at CVS. If it’s any consolation, I have Fringe scoop this week. Actually, I’ve got a few Fringe scoops. The first one comes courtesy of John Noble, who reveals exactly how Walternate plans to pull Peter’s strings from the alt-universe. “[Walternate] has to ensure that [Peter] continues to work on our side,” says Noble, “and he’ll do that through alt-Olivia.” Okay, I’ll bite: How exactly will Bolivia manipulate Peter? Noble hesitates before whispering, “She seduces him… Did I just say that? Did I just drop a big teaser?” I believe you did, sir!

Question: Does the fact that Fringe is setting every other episode “over there” mean that we’re going to see more of Charlie this season? —Melissa
That’s precisely what that means. Charlie remains active in the alt-world’s Fringe division, so look for him to appear in multiple episodes—beginning with next Thursday’s season premiere.

Question: Can I get some good Grey’s Anatomy news regarding Der and Mer? —Betsy
Among the manifestations of Derek’s post-bloodbath adrenaline junkie phase will be an increased sexual appetite. “[There’s] a lot of sex,” says series creator Shonda Rhimes. “He’s on the high that a person gets when they face death and survive it.” READ FULL STORY

'Fringe' First Look: The season 3 cast photo!

fringeImage Credit: Andrew Macpherson/FoxAre you noticing a pattern here? It’s Thursday and I’ve got another Fringe first look! Here’s the first official group photo for the Fox thriller’s third season, which premieres on Sept. 23. I can’t decide what I find most intriguing about this image: the shadowy figure “observing” the cast (presumably from Overthereland), or the touch of sass Astrid appears to be throwing out. Thoughts? Opinions? Theories? Share ‘em below!
