Spoiler Room: Scoop on 'Revenge,' 'Criminal Minds,' 'Vampire Diaries' and more
Welcome to the Spoiler Room, a safe place for spoiler addicts to come on a weekly basis to learn what’s coming next on their favorite shows and, hopefully, get a few of their own questions answered. If you want scoop on a specific show, send your questions to email@example.com.
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.)
Will we find out what happened to Blake on Criminal Minds? — Mindy
Yes, and you won’t have to wait long to get the scoop. “You’ll learn in the teaser that she’s actually moved to Boston and she’s teaching full time,” executive producer Erica Messer tells me. “She’s not an FBI agent anymore, but she’s taking all of her skills and teaching them to others, which is a pretty honorable thing to do.”
Any word on how long until Damon’s back in Mystic Falls on The Vampire Diaries? — Jenna
Since Mystic Falls is still being cloaked by the Travelers’ spell that will kill any vampire who steps foot in town, probably not anytime soon. However, Damon could actually come face-to-face with someone in the land of the living fairly quickly. (And no, that’s not counting Elena using some witchy drug to hallucinate him.) Ian Somerhalder teased that brother bonding isn’t far off. “I had some really great scenes with Paul [Wesley] not too long ago, like last week,” he says. “You definitely see some great stuff with those boys. It’s good when they’re not at one another’s throats.” So unless Stefan joins Elena’s drug trip, it sounds like we could have a Salvatore reunion within the first batch of episodes.
Anything you can share about Castle‘s wedding? — @Always_db03
Does the fact that the wedding will probably happen in season 7 count as “anything”? New showrunner David Amann hinted as much when he chatted with my colleague Samantha Highfill. “We understand there’s disappointment,” he said. “We’re committed to the Castle-Beckett relationship. Over the course of season 7, their relationship will continue to blossom and grow, and perhaps some of the things that people might have wanted to see in season 6 may present themselves a little bit later.” One suggestion: Hold the wedding somewhere within walking distance of both the bride and the groom.
I’m still in denial that this is the final season of Sons of Anarchy. Anything to comfort me? — Dave
A war is brewing in the final season that could spill straight into the streets of Charming all because of Jax’s quest for vengeance. If you thought SAMCRO’s president had made some questionable choices in the past, just wait until you see what lines he’ll cross this season. However, he may find an ally in the new sheriff (Annabeth Gish), who seems to want to play ball with the club, but can she be trusted?
Have there been any new details regarding Hans on Once Upon a Time? — Erin
As suspected, “He has not been redeemed,” executive producer Edward Kitsis tells me. “He’s a sociopath.” Here’s something to chew on: Could he actually be behind Elsa’s imprisonment in Rumple’s vault? “That’s one of the mysteries that we intend to unfurl,” executive producer Adam Horowitz says, adding that Hans “still feels the weight of being the youngest of 12 brothers, and there’s a very good chance of seeing some of those 12 brothers.”
Not sure if you watch this show, but do you know anything about the new season of Faking It? — Shari
Are you kidding me? I love Faking It! I’ll admit I was a late adopter, but I recently binge-watched and am counting down the days until the show’s return. The second season will kick off shortly after Amy and Liam did the deed since she’s picking up the morning-after pill as a precaution. The good news is that she seriously regrets her actions. But will Karma understand?
Do you know if Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. will cross over this season? — Anna
It won’t be long before we see more of the mini-crossovers. In one upcoming episode, Burgess will be among the cops who come to Severide’s rescue when he risks his life to protect a woman after they witness a gang initiation shooting. I hear the shooting actually brings Severide closer to said woman, which makes me worry about his future with Chicago P.D.’s Lindsay.
Thanks for the New Girl scoop, but any chance on getting something not love related? — Kathleen
Even though Winston won’t actually graduate from the police academy until around midseason, the roommates will already be dealing with the complications that come with his future career. “In the second episode, Nick, Coach and Cece decide to get stoned because they feel like they’re not going to be able to get stoned when Winston is actually a cop,” executive producer Liz Meriwether teases. “But then they end up at a party of all cops when they’re very stoned.”
Excited for Adrianne Palicki on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but what does that mean for her role on About a Boy? — Mel
Don’t worry, she’ll be back for several episodes at the beginning of the season, with the possibility of returning later. However, that should not give you hope for Sam and Will’s relationship. Speaking of girlfriends, Marcus may get one of his own this season. Does taking the fall for the school’s bad girl count as dating?
Best news I’ve heard all week: Kristin Bauer van Straten won’t be off our TVs for long: The True Blood star is reprising her role as Maleficent on Once Upon a Time for a major arc.
