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.
Anything on the Regina-Emma-Snow relationship on Once Upon a Time? — Mara
It certainly won’t be easy with the Evil Queen waging war on Storybrooke. “You get to see that this really is a family that has come together,” EP Edward Kitsis says. “Henry’s dream in the beginning was to bring everyone together, and in a lot of ways he has, but this year they’re going to be tested from their past. If there’s one thing the Evil Queen hates it’s Snow White — Snow White and other people’s happiness.”
Will DeLuca actually die on Grey’s Anatomy? — Fells
Alex may have beaten DeLuca within an inch of his life, but DeLuca will survive — and end up with an even bigger storyline in season 13. “We’re going to get to know DeLuca a lot better, who we don’t know at all, and who we’ve just started to scratch the surface of,” EP Shonda Rhimes tells me. “Now, because this thing has happened to him, he has found himself in a spotlight that he was not interested in ever being in.”
How does Alex feel about Clark coming to town on Supergirl? — Sam
Not great. “Alex has been everything to Kara; she’s her family,” EP Andrew Kreisberg says. “Alex has a little bit of a chip on her shoulder about Clark. She loves him and he’s family, but he left Kara on their doorstep. Kara is so excited to see Clark and so excited to be with him, it’s almost a little bit like Alex feels taken for granted, because she’s the family member who’s put in the time. It sets up an interesting conflict between her and Kara in the first couple of episodes.”
Is Ghost Rider a good guy or a villain on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? — Katherine
Depends on who you ask. From S.H.I.E.L.D.’s perspective, “He’s a different kind of threat than anything we’ve faced before,” Clark Gregg says. “It introduces a part of the Marvel world that deals more with strange elements of the Marvel Universe and he’s definitely the villain from hell.”

What’s coming up on Chicago P.D. this season? — Triva
As Olinsky contemplates his own legacy, he’ll be taking Ruzek and Atwater under his wing. “We’re spending more time with Ruzek and Atwater as partners,” EP Matt Olmstead says. “It’s time to toss them in the deep end and see what they can do. There’s a cool pairing of those two cops with Olinsky as the Yoda, because he vouched for both of them and so he’s teaching them along the way.”
Any crazy meta episodes planned for season 12 of Supernatural? — Tammy
If you’re hoping for the next “Fan Fiction” or “Baby,” you might have to wait a bit. But this is Supernatural, so there’s always a few creative ideas on the table. “You never want to do something conceptual that you’re not going to knock out of the park,” showrunner Andrew Dabb says. “That being said, we have some things that are totally different. We’re working on [an episode] right now that is a little Reservoir Dogs-y. [It’s a] non-linear, interesting approach to a story we’ve never done before.”
Anything you can tease about Reade on Blindspot? — Brenna
Next week, a big storyline kicks off for Reade, and by extension Tasha. “Reade is going to start to investigate his old coach, who was accused of abusing some kids,” EP Martin Gero teases of the character we met in season 1. “I’m incredibly proud of the work those two actors are doing and I can’t wait for people to see it.”
Any news about Sara in the first episodes of Legends of Tomorrow? — Benjilau
Sara will have a mixed reaction to meeting the Justice Society of America. “Sara’s never a fan of people who are too perfect and follow all the rules,” Caity Lotz says. “But Sara also has that military side to her, with organization and executing missions. They’re pretty good at that, so there’s a little bit of her that’s like, ‘These people have got their sh– together.’ But it’s also probably a little annoying, because they got their sh– together and they know it.”
Could this be the year Bruce becomes Batman on Gotham? — James
I wouldn’t expect Bruce to suit up in season 3, but he’ll definitely start acquiring some necessary skills for becoming the Caped Crusader. “Our actor [is] turning 16, so he’s getting close,” executive producer Ken Woodruff says. “We’re not quite getting to the point of Batman, but we’re really focusing on trying to get to see different sides of Bruce Wayne and to lay the foundation for all those Batman things. He’s going to be much more active. Near the end of last season, he spent time on the streets with Selina Kyle. We didn’t show a lot of that, but this year we’re going to show what the gains from that experience were — learning how to pick locks, break into things, be silent like a bat. We definitely wanted to show that progression for Bruce.”
Anything Elementary? — Jason
As I exclusively first revealed, Virginia Madsen will reprise her role as Gregson’s love interest Paige in the third episode, but what I haven’t yet teased is that wedding bells may be ringing for the couple this year. “There is a very strong possibility,” EP Rob Doherty says.
