I need anything Scandal! — Linney
With Mellie campaigning to become the next president, we’ll soon get to meet her challengers on both the Republican and Democratic side. “It’s an amazing field of candidates,” Bellamy Young says. “I cannot wait for everybody to see some new and old faces. Some folks will be a surprise, some folks will be folks you know very, very well, and some folks you may not have seen in a minute. It’s good and juicy.”
Can you tease anything about Damon’s time in the Phoenix Stone on The Vampire Diaries? — Helena
Have you ever seen Groundhog Day? The Phoenix Stone is pretty similar. (More on that here.) I’ll just add that the horrifying moment Damon relives leads to an ending that will leave your jaw on the floor — and not just for him, but for everyone.
I’ve been waiting forever for Blindspot to return. Do you have anything to tide me over? — Kristie
I can reveal that Jane isn’t the only one who’s been affected by the memory-wiping drugs. In fact, we’ll get to meet someone else in a somewhat similar position, which sheds more light on Jane’s training and on Orion.
I’d take any Chicago Fire scoop if you’ve got it. — Sammie
After Brett learns a secret about her partner’s past, Chili will take drastic measures to secure her job. But the two may find common ground when 51 lands in a life or death situation.
When will we see more Dottie on Agent Carter? — Tristan
Very soon, and you may be surprised to hear that Peggy may actually use Dottie in her cat-and-mouse game with Whitney Frost — though that doesn’t mean she can trust her. “Dottie has no empathy, and that’s incredibly dangerous, because it means she’s sick,” Hayley Atwell says. “However, Peggy can’t deny that she can be extremely valuable. They both know, under the surface, this is a game of psychological warfare between them.”

I see they’re using the old sitcom trope of using a big object to hide Melissa Fumero’s pregnancy on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. — Anthony
Yeah, the show is not writing in her pregnancy, but they will find very interesting ways to get around that. “Amy will have a big undercover operation,” EP Dan Goor teases. “The Nine-Nine will end up working on a multi-episode arc on one case that ends up having big repercussions for everyone.”
For The Originals, anything about Klamille you can tell us? Anything really, the wait is killing us. — Skye
All I can really tell you is that Klaus will have a very appropriate (and very scary) reaction to Cami’s fate. Also, in the show’s return hour, he’ll be faced with a big decision that’s ultimately out of his hands. And on a possibly related note, have tissues ready.
What’s coming up for Laurel on Arrow? — Phil
She’ll actually play a big role in the quest to take down Damien Darhk. “Laurel is going to be really crucial in getting Damien Darhk and putting a big wrench in his plans,” executive producer Wendy Mericle teases. “We’re excited because she’s going to be a key part of that plan, and it’s not going to be action-oritented.”
Any news on Abbie’s fate on Sleepy Hollow? — Franklin
That is the one question I can’t answer, but I can reveal that Ichabod and Jenny aren’t the only ones desperate to find out what happened to Abbie, which leads to a very surprising partnership.
Do you have anything on Suits? — Heather
In an upcoming episode, Jessica is “going to seek out help from an old friend, and that help is going to result in an exploration of her past choices,” says showrunner Aaron Korsh. “For her, survival doesn’t just mean staying out of prison, it also means keeping her firm in tact. That’s going to be foremost on her mind. But the idea of there being something more important than the firm has been planted in her head and we’ll see if that takes root.”
Best news I’ve heard all week: That Hunter Zolomon name-drop on The Flash warmed my little comic-book geek heart.
