Spoiler Room: Scoop on S.H.I.E.L.D., Hawaii Five-0, Once Upon a Time 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Would love to know the episode title-synopsis for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 311! — Susan
Your wish is my command. I can exclusively reveal that the title of the midseason premiere is “Bouncing Back.” And here’s the synopsis: “In the aftermath of his trip to Maveth, Coulson is more determined than ever to get to Gideon Malick and put an end to Hydra once and for all. Daisy and the team encounter more Inhumans who have powers like they’ve never seen before, but will they be friends or enemies of S.H.I.E.L.D.?” Dun. Dun. Duuuuuun.
I need some Danno scoop for Hawaii Five-0 ASAP. — Jane
Here’s some breaking news: Melanie Griffith will return as Danno’s mom in the Feb. 19 episode. During the hour, the FBI questions Clara over money that Matt Williams (Dane Cook) had tucked away, which leads to a shocking reveal about the Five-0 team.
Is there anything you can tease about the Underworld on Once Upon a Time? — Tanya
First, did you see this? Second, though I’ve actually been to the Underworld myself, I’ll let Josh Dallas take this one. “It’s a place that, once they get there, they’re going to discover that possibly some of these people can be saved and brought out of there, because maybe they’re misplaced in this world,” Dallas says. “We’re going to meet some people down there that maybe you don’t expect or you haven’t seen in quite a while — maybe a family member of David’s we might see down there. There is definitely a particular person down there for David that he’s going to come across, and Mary Margaret will come across that person too.” (Hint: The answer can be found in the recent Hot Seat.)
Any scoop on Clarke and The Ice Queen? And I’ll take anything Clexa. — Purple Monkey
Believe me when I say that Arkadia becoming the 13th clan of Earth will not sit well with everyone, leading to a showdown between Clarke and the Ice Queen that turns… I can’t quite say bloody, but you’ll understand more when you see it. Basically, that encounter forces Lexa’s hand when it comes to Clarke — and you will not be able to breathe during that scene. Good luck!
On Grey’s Anatomy, what’s going to happen to Grey House now that Meredith kicked Amelia out? — Seamus
Given what Meredith goes through in the midseason premiere, you’d think maybe she’d lean on Amelia and let her back into the house, but it doesn’t sound likely. “Those two characters don’t like each other right now, so they won’t really be crossing paths for a while,” says Kelly McCreary, who notes that Maggie will try not to get stuck in the middle of the current sibling rivalry. “Maggie and Amelia have developed a real bond. They care very much about each other. One of the reasons Maggie always fell in middle is that she cares for them equally. Maggie will remain loyal to both sisters and just try to stay out of the fray.”
Any teases for NCIS? — Jameson
In the upcoming 299th episode (!), fans will get some insight into the team’s lives after hours — also the title of the episode — as they work to solve a case that seemed cut and dry, but really makes Gibbs’ and everyone else’s gut churn. This does not bode well for DiNozzo, whose date starts to unravel as he begins to focus more on the case than his companion. While Abby is off collecting evidence in her PJs, we’ll also see McGee and Delilah (the returning Margo Harshman) at home as McGee recreates a crime scene out of their dinner. Bon appétit!
Are we going to get an Aurora-Cami showdown on The Originals? — Shawn
The real question is whether you want an Aurora-Cami showdown. While Cami is rightly pissed, she’s also “facing the classic conundrum of how would I ever kill a thousand-year-old psycho vampire?” Leah Pipes says. In short, Cami won’t suddenly be all powerful — much like Josh’s transition, where he was “somewhat powerless” at first.
When will we have all three Flashes fighting side by side on The Flash? — Retro12Hunter
Not anytime soon. “I guess that could happen down the road,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says, likening Wally West’s journey in becoming Kid Flash to Roy Harper’s with Arsenal. “I wouldn’t want to say no, but so much of that stuff is a little bit further into the future than we’ve planned for right now.”
Got any exciting details on what’s coming up for Castle and Beckett? — Anna
In order to keep their rekindled flame secret, Castle is forced to come up with a convincing cover to continue working with the 12th precinct. Unfortunately, what he comes up with will ruffle a few feathers and even leads to a, let’s say, physical altercation.
Will everyone survive Damon’s attack on The Vampire Diaries? — Amy
Really, you should be most worried about Damon and Stefan. It’s one thing to be stuck inside the Phoenix Stone, but it’s another to have to readjust to the real world. The difficulties that come with that will lead to what I’d say is this season’s most shocking moment yet.
Best news I’ve heard all week: We all knew it was going to happen, but it’s still exciting for the Supergirl–The Flash crossover to be official.
