Want scoop on your favorite shows? Then come hang out in the Spoiler Room, where I attempt to satiate your need to find out what’s coming up on TV. If you want spoilers on a specific show, send Qs to my Twitter: @NatalieAbrams.

Now that Regina and Rumple are both awake, will they work with each other on Once Upon a Time? — Marcus
First, they’ll need to figure out if they can trust each other, as their memories as Roni and Weaver could get in the way of that. “There’s a classic Gold-Regina scene, going back to even season 1,” Lana Parrilla says. “It’s a little homage to the episode where she asks him what his real name is. So we have a moment between the two of them, but then you don’t see them again for a while.”

Anything on Jack and Castiel’s reunion on Supernatural? — Rachel
Castiel will very quickly find himself taking on a parental role with Jack, even as soon as this week’s episode, a.k.a the first time they meet. “A big part of this episode is about trying to tell Jack that everybody screws up, don’t give on yourself,” Misha Collins says. “The truth is, Cas is the worst person to be giving that speech because he never forgives himself and is always lamenting his poor choices in the past.” And yes, Castiel will have to face his choices at some point. As Collins puts it, “I don’t think the journey of self-healing as really begun for Cas, but he’s also not as morose as we’ve found him previously.”

Would like some April scoop for Grey’s Anatomy. — Samara
April will have a big episode in the second half of the season that’s inspired by current events. “We’re taking on some very real issues this year,” EP Krista Vernoff tells me. “We’re doing an episode that focuses on police bias, in addition to the domestic violence storyline. April is at the center of an episode that really looks at the injustices of the world and how a character like her processes that.”

I really loved the Runaways comics, but I’m curious how the show will handle the parents — like those who were time travelers and aliens. — Daniel
While Runaways will certainly capture the spirit of the comics, it will also be quite different. “None of the parents in this version [have powers],” executive producer Josh Schwartz says, then couching his response considering something like, say, the Staff of One. “You’ll get a grounded approach to a lot of these bigger concepts that are explainable through science and technology, but it’s more of a genre show. It leans more sci-fi than superhero.”

I’m obsessed with Rich DotCom and Patterson’s dynamic on Blindspot. Any scoop? — Meredith
Patterson doesn’t just share a connection to Rich DotCom. I can confirm that Josh Dean will be reprising his role as Rich’s partner in crime (and life) Boston Arliss Crab. “It’s a really, really fun episode in our back half,” EP Martin Gero teases of Boston’s return. “Boston’s connection with Patterson in those two years leads to a surprising discovery and a really fun episode.”

Gimme something on The Fosters. I can’t wait until January! — Gypsy
Remember how the end of September’s finale involved Callie and A.J. helping Ximena take sanctuary in a church as ICE was attempting to arrest her? Well, all three of them are going to be stuck in that church for quite awhile when the show comes back, possibly giving a certain set of exes a chance to reconnect.

How about some scoop on The Brave? — Elliot
The fall finale brings the show full circle back to the pilot, as the team hunts down the man they believe is responsible for the beach explosion. But when things go awry, Jaz will not only defy orders but will willingly put herself in danger to get the job done. Prepare yourself for a super stressful hour.

Will we finally find out who died on How to Get Away with Murder? — Parsons
Who said anyone will die? Yes, we’ve seen a lot of blood, and yes, you will find out whose blood it belongs to during Thursday’s fall finale, but I wouldn’t count my chickens just yet. Cryptic bonus: A familiar face returns during the hour!

What’s next for Liz following Tom’s death on The Blacklist? — Brianna
She’ll won’t immediately return to the team. However, while off on a walkabout to reconcile her feelings about Tom’s death, she will make sure the team is protected in her absence. “Liz has made Red promise her that, in her absence and in her time to reflect and deal with the aftermath of Tom’s death, that it would be one burden too many for her to have to bear the weight of her absence meaning that the Task Force was going to get shut down and bad guys weren’t going to be rounded up,” EP John Eisendrath says. “So she’s made him promise to continue in her absence.”

Will Mari appear on Legends of Tomorrow this season? — Kellee
“Unfortunately, no movement at the moment, but we remain hopeful,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim says of the Arrowverse’s original Vixen, a.k.a. Amaya’s other granddaughter Mari McCabe (Megalyn E.K.). EP Phil Klemmer adds: “But you might meet her boyfriend.” (FYI: That’s just a possibility at the moment, as the Legends bosses are still breaking that episode.)

This week in TV: This was wonderful.

That’s a wrap on this week’s Spoiler Room. Don’t forget to tweet your Qs to @NatalieAbrams.
