Spoiler Room: Blindspot, Legends of Tomorrow, Agents of SHIELD 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 voted Blindspot in the EW Cover Battle! Now give me some scoop. — Jeremy
Now that Jane has uncovered more about her identity, season 2 will take on different themes. “It will surprise you not at all that the themes are redemption and family,” EP Martin Gero says. He also reveals the show will explore why Jane would join the mysterious group behind her tattoos within the first two episodes of the new season.
Anything on what the Legends of Tomorrow will be doing in season 2? — Mischa
After the destruction of the Time Council and Oculus, the team will have a new directive. “In many ways, the season finale of season 1 set up the new mission statement for season 2,” EP Marc Guggenheim says. “Like Rip says at the end of the season finale, there basically are no more Time Masters. We basically have to be the Time Masters.”
Can you tell us anything about Daisy’s storyline on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. next season? — Bridgette
Though Daisy is basically in a self-imposed exile at the moment, I have to wonder whether the team will find out she was ready to crawl back to Hive given the chance. “The two people who know she did that are both dead, so no one else knows,” Chloe Bennet says. “There must be a moment coming up in the next season where she reveals that. I think she feels like she can’t get close to people because wherever she goes, death follows. That hit home with her, especially this time.” Bring on Dark Daisy!
Do you know who’s going to win Everlasting on UnREAL this season? — Fatima
I hear we’ll see an engagement ring thrown into the mix during Monday’s episode, but the real question is: Who’s popping the question?
I’d like some Once Upon a Time spoilers please. — Jane
The introduction of the Land of Untold Stories basically opens up storytelling avenues to, well, “everyone,” according to Edward Kitsis. “What’s funny is in the pilot if you watch when Emma sees the wolf that stops her from leaving town, the book flips open and we see all these worlds,” Kitsis says. “It’s time to tell new stories, broaden the show and move forward.” As for why these stories have not yet been told, Kitsis points to something Hyde said in the finale: “As he said, I need a place where these stories can play out, which would make me think for some reason they weren’t being played out, they were pushed on pause.”
Any scoop on Teen Wolf season 6? — Alexa
Considering last season ended with the escape of a Nazi werewolf, I’d say we should start there. “We have a Nazi werewolf, which might be the most interesting villain we’ve ever had on the show,” Tyler Posey says. “I think this might be the oldest werewolf that we’ve ever [had], and of course he’s not a normal werewolf. That would just be too easy for the Teen Wolf world.” But that’s not all. Showrunner Jeff Davis reveals that the addition of the Nazi werewolf means we’re once again heading back in time. “We do have a couple flashback scenes to Nazi Germany,” Davis says. So yeah, this should be interesting.
Will we see Chin become an adoptive father in season 7 of Hawaii Five-0? — Lisa
That all depends on where Gabriel’s daughter ends up. “She’s got family in Mexico also,” EP Peter M. Lenkov says. “It’s going to look like she’s going to end up going back there, and I think Chin is going to understand that it’s probably better for her to go with a mother and a father and kids, and it’s probably a better environment for her. But there’s going to be a little hiccup in that. We’re going to see a nice little arc between Gabriel’s family and Chin for the sort of soul of this little girl.”
Grey’s Anatomy scoop? — Jana
Though they took a step toward reconciliation, Owen eventually learning that Riggs hooked up with Meredith probably won’t go over too well. “That’s going to come out, I’m sure, next season,” Kevin McKidd says. “I don’t think Owen is going to be happy about that. He’s almost becoming an unofficial brother to Meredith. Derek was his friend. He’ll be a bit territorial, to be honest. Also, the last time Riggs got close to somebody Owen cares about, she died. He might be being a little irrational when he finds out.”
Need some scoop on that new show Dead of Summer. — Micah
Now that Alex and Amy are splitsville, Cricket makes a play for him, but ends up getting mixed up with the wrong crowd. Suffice it to say, she may get more than she bargained for — in more ways than one.
Can’t tell you how excited I am about more Curb Your Enthusiasm! Do you have any info on season 9? — Carl
Despite their divorce, Cheryl Hines is likely to return as Larry David’s long-suffering ex. “As far as I know I am involved,” Hines says. “I don’t know what the season is about or if I’m involved, but I texted Larry and he said if I’m not too busy he wants me to be in it. So, that’s all I know.”
