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

Now that Maggie knows the truth about Richard, how awkward will it get at the hospital on Grey’s Anatomy? — Jillian

Well, she didn’t really give Richard a chance to explain his side of things on Thursday—and it sounds like she won’t provide him that opportunity anytime soon. “She’s too upset. She doesn’t trust him,” Kelly McCreary says, pointing out that Maggie still doesn’t know that Meredith has confirmed the truth that she’s her sister, which just adds fuel to the fire against staying in Seattle as her world comes crashing down. “There aren’t a lot of reasons for her to want to stay at this point,” she says. “There are a lot of reasons for her to go home.”

When will we see Angela Bassett and Michael Chiklis on American Horror Story? — Serita

Desiree, the three-boobed woman, and strong man Dell Toledo will make their way into camp in the second episode and they’ll make their presence known in a big way. First off, Desiree’s breasts are far from the only interesting thing about her, while Dell does not—I repeat—does not get along with his estranged family Jimmy and Ethel, though another Freak may pay the price in that regard.

Do you think there’s any chance Chris Evans could appear on Agent Carter? — Mel

Since the show takes place after Captain America got lost in the ice, it’s unlikely. Instead, the ABC drama is stocking up on male counterparts to make Agent Carter’s life a little more difficult. I’ve learned exclusively that Kyle Bornheimer has landed a recurring role as Agent Ray Krzeminski, who will clash with Peggy.

Are we going to see more of Quinn and Carrie’s relationship on Homeland? — Zac

Try as he might to stay away, a deeper conspiracy involving the brutal beating and murder of Sandy Bachman (Corey Stoll) will bring them back together. But it’ll be a rough road getting there as Quinn attempts to put his past behind him in the wake of his arrest.

Do you have anything on the Elementary premiere? — Mae

It won’t be long before Watson is able to deduce that Sherlock is back in New York when a mysterious tipster leaves a message pertaining to her case. While she’s not necessarily pleased by his return, Gregson will actually leave Sherlock’s fate in Watson’s hands. But it’s Joan’s fate you should be worried about when she crosses a mob boss who threatens her life.

What’s going on with baby Noah on Law & Order: SVU? —Robert

The closing scene from this week’s episode was pretty ominous, right? But baby Noah’s condition is not nearly as scary as the predicament Rollins and Amaro find themselves in when a sociopathic boy takes a class of students hostage and they end up on the wrong end of his gun. Suffice it to say, they don’t make a great first impression on the new deputy chief William Dodds (Peter Gallagher), who will definitely rub you—and Olivia—the wrong way.

Will we see in the Kol flashbacks if he ever met people like Katherine and Marcel on The Originals? — Tom

There are no guarantees in terms of which characters Kol will run into via flashbacks, but I can tell you one of the time periods we’ll be visiting with his character. “When we first met the Original family, Kol Mikaelson is undaggered and he’s walking around, and he’s dressed in garb that looks like it’s from the early 20th century,” executive producer Michael Narducci. “He’s ostensibly been daggered since that time, [so] what was the story of that and what did that look like? We want to tell a bigger story that gives us an element or an idea of where everybody was throughout their time. Klaus daggered his siblings for a reason and what was that reason?” Well, considering it’s Klaus, does he ever really need a reason?

Got anything Scandal? — Jonah

I hear Carol Locatell has landed a guest-starring role on an upcoming episode. Per usual, details on her role are being kept under wraps, but rumor has it we’ll see her in the White House and she’ll make quite an impression.

Will we see Tom Keen for real on The Blacklist? — Holden

Word on the street is that we’ll see him in the flesh soon. But what’s really interesting is that he may find some new allies in a case of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Though the terms “enemy” and “friend” are used very loosely on this show since I hear Red and Berlin might actually team up at some point.

I can’t believe Oliver and Felicity aren’t going to be together. Can you give this Arrow fan any hope? — Tina

Executive producer Marc Guggenheim stresses that you should look at that first kiss-turned break up scene at the hospital as the first of a two-parter, which will continue in episode 2. “This is not the last time we’ll hear the words ‘I love you’ in connection with Oliver and Felicity,” he says. “The repercussions of that scene and that storyline in episode one, that’s going to follow them over the course of season 3. It’s not over. We didn’t just hit pause or reset on their relationship. This is just a development in an ongoing relationship for them.”

Worst news I’ve heard all week: I know it’ll likely lead to Laurel becoming the Black Canary, but I’m really bummed that Arrow killed off Sara.

That’s a wrap on this week’s Spoiler Room. Be sure to email your questions to or tweet them to @NatalieAbrams.
