Spoiler Room: Scoop on Blindspot, Originals, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’d like to know about Jane working with the team again on Blindspot. — Carly
While WelLer & Co. will find it hard to trust JanE, she’s not too happy with them either. “She feels that the team pretty much gave her to the CIA,” Jaimie AlexanDer says, “and she’s been beaten eveRyday for three months straight.” In short, don’t expect a happy reunion.
Is there hope for Klaus and Marcel’s relationship on The Originals? — Sara
To say that Klaus and Marcel’s relationship is more complicated than ever would be an understatement. “The indignity of Klaus Mikaelson’s situation the last five years [is being] held captive by his surrogate son and forced to be an advisor to a king that he does not recognize,” EP Julie Plec says. “Also, [he knows] Marcel is actually singularly responsible for the fact he’s alive, because so many people have come to town in the last five years desperate to see him reduced to ash.”
What’s next for Olivia on SVU? — Melissa
While it seemed like Tucker was gearing up to propose to Olivia in the finale, she may not be ready for that when the show returns. “She wants to be, but the emotional fallout of Mike’s death is causing her to question everything,” Mariska Hargitay says.
Any Haleb scoop for Pretty Little Liars?! — Ana
It’s not specifically Haleb, but how about some general shipper scoop for the finale? After season 7 introduced us to a number of new couples (Spaleb, anyone?) and reunited some old couples (Ezria, anyone?) there will be happiness in the summer finale. But the question is: Which couples get a happy ending? According to showrunner Marlene King, “There are three sets of shippers that will be very happy with this finale.” Hit the comments with your guesses!
Are we going to see Black Flash on The Flash in season 3? — Peter
Potentially. “Obviously we did that on purpose,” EP Andrew Kreisberg says. “We love working with Teddy [Sears]. He’s such an amazing actor and amazing person, and was so much a part of the success of this show last season. There aren’t any immediate plans for that, but you can’t keep a good Black Flash down, so I’m sure we’ll be seeing him in the future.”
Do you have anything on Once Upon a Time? — ButtercupOUAT
Ask and you shall receive! “We’re going to see Henry back in operation with Emma,” EP Edward Kitsis says. And yes, that does mean there’s a new operation name! “It will be revealed in the premiere,” EP Adam Horowitz says.
Anything you can share about the new season of Elementary? — Pam
How’s this for cryptic? “The return of a very familiar face is in the works,” executive producer Rob Doherty tells me. “We are working on bringing back a beloved member of the Elementary family. The odds are quite good.” It’s not yet official, so I can’t tell you who he’s talking about, but hit the comments with your theories!
How will the team feel about Liz Keen being alive on The Blacklist? — Samuel
There are mixed reactions. “They all have various levels of feeling betrayed by Liz,” Megan Boone says. “I also think they understand why she did what she did on a certain level. They’re just hurt because they had to go through the mourning process of her death. Now, of course, her being alive is great news, but it’s just really painful.”
What’s next for Annalise and Frank on How to Get Away with Murder? — Xander
Any scoop on what’s going to happen to the loft-mates this year on New Girl? — Callie
Other than Cece and Schmidt desperately wanting to move out, you mean? Here’s a tidbit for you: Winston isn’t just Prank Sinatra, he’s become the loft’s Inspector Gadget. (Winspector Gadget? Nevermind.) When Nick comes back after visiting Reagan in New Orleans, Winston’s going to show his loft-mate just how easy it is to keep the sparks flying despite the distance. After all, he’s been doing great with Aly, who’s out of town at the FBI Academy. “Winston has become a master of the long-distance relationship and has all these technological gadgets and tricks that make him an amazing long-distance boyfriend,” showrunner Liz Meriwether says. “Obviously, that’s not really Nick’s thing, so he’s struggling a bit more.”
