'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Justified,' 'Once Upon a Time,' 'White Collar': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Welcome back, friends! Hope the holidays were as fattening for you as they were for me.

As winter hiatus comes to a close, it’s time to get back into the swing of things. (Although, I hope you still enjoyed the special Once Upon a Time edition of Spoiler Room that was served up last week!) And this week, there’s a little bit of something for everyone, I hope. If not, there’s a simple way to solve that: Hit me up! E-mail SpoilerRoom@ew.com or Tweet me @EWSandraG. And if you don’t see your question, keep trying! (I do read them all!)

Enjoy, and it’s truly lovely to be back in the swing of things! (Side note: Anyone else sort of love what’s going on in this week’s Spoiler Room blend? Now that’s a trio!)

‘THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’: STEFAN CHANNELS… JACK BAUER AND CHUCK NORRIS?
The year 2011 hasn’t been the easiest for Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Co., on The Vampire Diaries, and, as Julie Plec told Mandi Bierly, the first new episode of the season doesn’t do much to indicate changing winds in 2012. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' 150th episode: The gang's all here...and so is Kevin -- PHOTOS

There aren’t many secrets revealed in the promo photos for How I Met Your Mother‘s landmark 150th episode — unless you count an appearance from Kevin (Kal Penn) a secret. In which case, well, surprise!

The good news is that if history proves true, these wonderfully vague promo photos means we’re in for a doozy of an episode. Here’s what we do know! (Mild spoilers ahead)

This is the episode where Marshall and Lily officially move to the suburbs. There’s an appearance from Lily’s dad (who refuses to move out of their house). And the gang visits a strip club. The latter sentence in itself promises something of greatness, friends.

'The Mentalist,' 'Terra Nova,' 'How I Met Your Mother,' 'NCIS': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Hello, friends!

As we all prepare to celebrate the annual celebration of Saturnalia, it is with great excitement that I present to you this week’s column! Why am I so excited? Because I get a week of vacation starting… Oh, crap! Ten hours ago!

We better get a move on. But while I’m away, remember to keep sending in your questions to spoilerroom@ew.com and sending em via Twitter. (@EWSandraG) See y’all soon!

‘THE MENTALIST’: RED JOHN MYSTERY WILL ‘RAMP UP’

The Red John story line has taken so many twists and turns since last season’s epic finale that that story line has largely taken a backseat to other fun capers. But that won’t be the case all season. In fact, Daniel Cerone, executive producer and writer of next week’s “Fugue in Red,” tells me this week’s episode, which will find Jane reverting to his con-man ways after an accident, will “reframe who Red John is in the life of our character” and ultimately set the stage for a second half of the season that will see more action from this fan-favorite story line.

'How I Met Your Mother,' 'Chuck,' 'Glee,' 'Gossip Girl': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Happy Thanksgiving, Roomies!

As I’ll likely be in a Turkey coma on Friday, here’s something to be thankful for a little early… Spoiler Room: Special Wednesday/Pre-Holiday/Yay For a Long Weekend Edition! Yup, just a few scoops to take you into your hopefully lovely holiday.

But before the 411 — and at the risk of sounding very sappy — I have to say that I’m very thankful for your readership and highly entertaining comments and questions this year. Here’s to another great one!

On that note, don’t slack! Send questions and ponderings to spoilerroom@ew.com or Tweet ‘em to me @EWSandraG. Be well!

‘HIMYM’: ABOUT THE NEXT EPISODE…
The logline for next week’s How I Met Your Mother is incredibly teasey. Observe: When “Robin receives bad news, she decides to lie about it to the gang. Meanwhile, Marshall hangs Christmas decorations on the house in the ‘burbs with help from his neighbor.” But still unsatisfied, I hopped on the phone yesterday with HIMYM executive producer Carter Bays, who talked about the next episode. (To read part of our chat, click here.)

What I left out about the Dec. 5 episode, however, is something that truly sent chills of anticipation down my spine: While Bays said he believes it’s “one of the best episodes we’ve ever done,” he also expressed a little apprehension, saying he hopes viewers will see it the same way. “You know, honestly, I hope people stay on board after the next episode,” he tells me. “I think there’s some incredible acting in it, and it’s a really nicely told story that we’re very pleased with. But… this Barney and Robin stuff is a third rail for our show in a good way. It’s nice to get a little jolt every now and then, but it is so divisive among fans from what I’ve gathered. So hopefully people will enjoy the story for what it is. But yeah, we’re nervous about where the story goes. Excited, and very proud of it, but I hope people stay on board. I think they will.” READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' boss on Robin's bombshell: 'There are more revelations in store'

Fun fact: Executive producer Carter Bays and the How I Met Your Mother team almost considered making last night’s episode of the show and the next new installment (airing Dec. 5) a two-parter episode. That would not have been an unnatural choice, considering the ending left off with Robin revealing to Barney (and the viewers!) that she was pregnant. But if viewers had seen both parts to this story, it would have, as Bays tells EW, been so much easier to talk about.

“I would say the wheels of fate are not done turning for these characters, and it’s definitely a big surprise, but there’s more to come,” Bays teases. “This little story isn’t over yet. I almost feel weird commenting on anything just yet because there are more revelations in store.” For one, says Bays, the question of the baby’s paternity will be “settled pretty quickly,” but there will also be developments that give way to “a bigger story.” READ FULL STORY

'Once Upon a Time,' 'Castle,' 'Leverage,' 'How I Met Your Mother': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

As I’m capping off this week’s Spoiler Room, Regis Philbin is saying goodbye on Live! So as I try to ignore it enough not to weep like a mad person, forgive me if I don’t make a lot of sense. (God, I’m such a ridiculous sappy human!)

‘GLEE’: LET’S TALK ABOUT SEX

'Terra Nova' ratings drop on Halloween night

Fox’s Terra Nova ratings got spooked on Halloween night, falling more than any other broadcast show after spending a week off the air due to baseball coverage.

Terra Nova returned to 6.4 million viewers and a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating, down 25 percent compared to its last original airing. (Bummer — some say it was the show’s best episode, recap here.) Given that Terra Nova airs at 8 p.m. and is targeted toward families, it was probably the most likely series to take a punch.

And Terra Nova wasn’t the only show to take a holiday night hit in the ratings — pretty much every series was down, except… READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother': Ted's awkward cuddle time with the Slutty Pumpkin (Katie Holmes!) -- VIDEO

Having been the victim of awkward cuddle time on several occasions, I couldn’t help but lose it during this clip of Ted and the Slutty Pumpkin (guest star Katie Holmes).

In these clips from the episode airing Oct. 31, we learn that not only does Naomi (Madam Pumpkin’s real name) totally remember Ted from all those years ago, but she thinks they’re meant to be! Too bad the feeling is not reciprocated. In fact, he’s not feeling it at all!

On an unrelated note, is Robin trying to convince Barney he’s Canadian? The horror!*
