Spoiler Room: Scoop on Murder, Elementary, SVU 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.
I’ll take anything How to Get Away with Murder! — Ingrid
On a show like How to Get Away with Murder, this probably doesn’t come as a surprise, but executive producer Pete Nowalk offered up an early revelation about the season 2 finale: “There will be a dead body,” he says, noting that it will be someone we know. “That wouldn’t be any fun [if it wasn’t].”
What’s next for Sherlock on Elementary? — Sina
We’re going to get a big reveal about Sherlock’s mother very soon. “Sherlock and Morland Holmes have never been close, but lately the ice has begun to thaw,” says co-executive producer Jason Tracey, who penned the upcoming Feb. 25 episode. “‘Who Is That Masked Man?’ marks the return of a chill wind between father and son. While investigating the murder of Morland’s second great love, Sherlock is brought face to face with a tragic revelation about the first, and is reminded that he truly is his mother’s son.”
Is Benson dating that guy from IAB on SVU?! — Tara
Up until Wednesday’s episode, I really thought Liv and Chicago P.D.‘s Voight had potential. Just me? But yes, Liv and Ed Tucker appear to be a thing. “We don’t like to write and tell, but they seemed to have found each other,” EP Warren Leight tells me. “Their relationship has been evolving the last few years and they’ve come to respect and trust each other. As to where it’s going, this is SVU. Sooner, rather than later, their friendship will be tested. Episodes 17 and 18 are a rollercoaster for them.”
Will we see Killer Frost again on The Flash? — S Delcarmen
First off, despite the final breach being closed, we have not seen the last of Earth-2. “You’ll see quite a bit” in coming episodes, executive producer Todd Helbing says. As for Killer Frost, we will find out her fate, so yes, you will see her again sometime soon.
If people we know will die in that Quantico explosion, does that mean it’s the last we’ve seen of them? — Dani
In short, no. Thanks to the show’s penchant for dual storytelling, at least one familiar face who perishes will be back via flashback. “What I will say is that somebody who doesn’t survive the explosion you will still be seeing in the Quantico timeline,” EP Josh Safran promises. Guesses as to whom in the comments!
Are we finally going to learn more about Castle‘s missing time? — Tiana
Yes! “We are going to conclude that missing time,” EP Terrence Paul Winter promises. “We’re going to find out exactly what happened. We know what happened those first two weeks, the other six weeks are still a mystery. We’re going to find out what happens in episode 14.” That’s the episode in which Castle heads to LA. “Castle gets involved with this legendary greatest detective society, which Gerald McRaney character runs,” EP Alexi Hawley adds. “Ultimately, he gets pitted against Summer Glau’s character to compete to solve a case.”
By the looks of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. trailer, will we find out on March 8 what Inhuman Ward is now? — Marie More
You will certainly suspect what Ward is now, but you’ll have to wait for confirmation. “This is a new version of Ward,” Brett Dalton says. “The Ward that we know and love is not there anymore. He’s going to be a little different. He’s inhabited by another creature which has existed for centuries on this other world called Maveth. There have been monuments that have been built in his honor. He has access to all of the thoughts and memories that Ward had.” (More on that here.)
Hit me with some Hawaii Five-0 scoop. — Anthony
I can exclusively reveal that Martin Starr will be returning as Adam Charles, a.k.a. computer hacker Toast. In an episode slated for late in the season, Five-0 finds Toast flying first class dressed to the nines — gold smartwatch, cashmere hoodie, cover of a magazine — after creating one of the fastest-grossing mobile video games of all time. He’s picking up a swimsuit model to have chicken and waffles in L.A., until McGarrett and Danno pull him off the plane. They need his help with a case tracking down a cyber-stalker who kidnapped a college student.
Was that Charisma Carpenter on Chicago P.D. this week?? — Briana
Yes, and the good news for Buffy and Angel fans is that she’ll be sticking around for several episodes. The bad news is that her new working relationship with Halstead may throw a wrench in that fan-favorite coupling. “It’s definitely a test to the Halstead and Lindsay relationship,” executive producer Matt Olmstead teases.
Anything for The Walking Dead? — Jana
A familiar face from the comics makes his (or her!) debut during Sunday’s episode, but that certainly won’t be the most shocking moment — in fact, even comic book fans probably won’t see this twist coming.
Best news I’ve heard all week: The big man upstairs may be back on Supernatural!
