Spoiler Room: Blacklist, SVU, NCIS: LA, and more spoilers
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.
I’m really rooting for Tom and Liz on The Blacklist. What’s next for them? — Erin
If you thought getting shot and nearly dying wasn’t rough enough, Tom Keen will soon realize he can’t run from his past forever. Tom’s former spy handler and mentor The Major (Lance Henriksen) returns with some unfinished business that may put Tom and Liz’s future together in jeopardy.
What the heck?! How can Benson be out at SVU?? — Andy
Sad but true. Benson certainly isn’t going to take this transfer to Community Affairs sitting down, but it won’t be easy getting her job back. “She knows there’s nothing she can do right now,” EP Warren Leight teases. “It’s extremely disorienting to her. The other guy who also doesn’t have his job at the moment in Tucker. The two of them are officially sidelined. Unofficially, can they figure out what’s going on, how powerful is this ring, or is Tucker involved? I hope she enjoys [being in] Community Affairs for a little while.” Cue evil laugh.
I’ll take anything NCIS: LA if you’ve got it. — Dino
I can exclusively reveal that Peter Cambor, who played operational psychologist Nate Getz, will return in an upcoming episode slated for April. After going dark for three months while on a long-term undercover op tied to terrorism in L.A., Getz resurfaces on security footage stealing a military transport of weapons. When Callen and Sam track him down, he double-crosses the duo, taking Callen hostage and torturing him for information. Check out a sneak peek at his return:
Really loved The Big Bang Theory‘s 200th episode! What’s next for the gang? — Briga
There’s another big turning point for Amy and Sheldon on the horizon — though it doesn’t involve the ring. “Very soon Sheldon is going to reveal a weird secret to Amy that he’s been hiding for a long time that nobody knows about,” executive producer Steve Molaro tells me. Your wildest guesses go in the comments below.
When will Castle tell us more about LokSat? — Murphy
The show will “touch on it again a couple of times driving toward what’s going to be the finale,” says EP Alexi Hawley, who promises both a reveal and some frustration in the season-ender — especially if the show doesn’t get renewed. “Our hope is to get to a place where they do get to confront LokSat and get something satisfying,” he adds. “It would be great to have something of a cliffhanger.”
Will Weller start to suspect something amiss with Jane on Blindspot? — Heather
Not immediately, and certainly not after her near-confession when they thought they were going to die on that plane in the midseason premiere. “For him, he thought she had a choice, as in he said she didn’t have to come and she did, whereas we know she meant something much different,” EP Martin Gero says. “Jane is definitely his blindspot.” But everyone else will get there sooner or later.
Hugo Strange just found out about Mr. Freeze on Gotham. Do I sense a new partnership? — James
I don’t know about partnership, but as two highly intelligent individuals, Mr. Freeze and Hugo Strange could certainly help each other out. “[Mr. Freeze] hasn’t reached his full persona yet because he hasn’t fully perfected his technology, but you can imagine, in the arms of Strange, he will be allowed to do so,” Ben McKenzie teases.
What can you tease about Quantico‘s return? — Lyla `
Not everyone is happy with Alex, who is determined to prove that Elias didn’t act alone — a divisive stance to say the least, and one that will put more than just her in danger. In other news, the flashbacks will give rise to a potential new couple that you will love to hate … or hate to love.
Do you know if and when Nashville is coming back? Why have they been gone so long? It’s a great show!! — Terri
Not only is it coming back, but it’s coming back with a wedding! When the show returns on March 16, it’s time for Deacon and Rayna’s big day. And yet, it’s Maddie and Daphne who seem to be getting cold feet. Let’s just hope that their concerns don’t freak Deacon out and cause him to run. (Bonus scoop: A long-kept secret will be revealed at the ceremony.)
Please tell me Michael and Jane are together for good on Jane the Virgin? — Michelle
It’s hard to say anything’s for certain on a telenovela, but I have a good feeling the next episode will address your concerns. When Rafael looks like he could need Jane’s help, it brings up a lot of old issues for Michael, which will force Jane and Michael to decide if they’re better now … or if they’re doomed to repeat their old mistakes.
Worst news I’ve heard all week: I’m not ready to talk about this yet. Sniff.
