I still remember the first time a spoiler truly failed me. It was the season 3 finale of The O.C., and I had read that someone was going to die. Everything I found online pointed to Sandy Cohen having a heart attack. The rumors crushed me to read—but after weeks of preparation, I was ready to try and come to terms with it. But as I sat on my couch, two minutes before the finale was scheduled to end, I realized that Sandy was nowhere to be seen. Instead, the show was focused on a car containing Ryan and Marissa. I started to panic. Sure enough, the spoiler had led me astray: Marissa died, and my favorite couple was torn apart. I’ll never let that go.
So why am I telling you this? Because I promise you, roomies, that I will do my very best never to lead you astray. With the return of Spoiler Room, you have my word that you will know what I know—because that’s how being roommates works, right? Just be sure not to, you know, open my mail or anything. Deal?
