Spoiler Room: Scoop on Once Upon a Time, Chicago Fire, Supergirl 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.
What can you tease for Once Upon a Time‘s winter finale? — Alyssa
Now that Emma has discovered the sword that is fated to kill her, “The next step is to find out who it belonged to and get rid of them,” executive producer Edward Kitsis tells me. But that mission will go awry when the Evil Queen makes a very intriguing wish in the winter finale, turning our beloved Savior into a princess. Read more here.
What’s next for Severide on Chicago Fire? — Oriana
Severide is going to be looking in the mirror a lot — both literally and figuratively — as he makes a rather painful decision in the winter finale. On another note, check Entertainment Weekly‘s Facebook on Monday at 3 p.m. ET for a Facebook Live with Taylor Kinney!
Where is the Alex/Maggie Supergirl scoop you promised? — Brenda
Right here. Though Alex and Maggie smooched in the winter finale, their blossoming relationship has a long way to go. “There’s definitely some bumps,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells me. “Just because they are together now doesn’t mean it’s going to go smoothly. Alex has never been in this kind of relationship before and she’s going to make some rookie mistakes that they’ll have to get past. Maggie has been presented as being the perfect guide for Alex’s journey this season, but Alex is going to learn that Maggie isn’t perfect, which is going to lead to some difficult situations coming down the road.”
How will losing their mole within the FBI affect Sandstorm moving forward on Blindspot? — Jeff
They didn’t just lose Borden — don’t forget, Jane’s allegiances are with the FBI. “It’s a blow to them certainly, they’ve lost both of their moles,” executive producer Martin Gero says. “They lost the intel that they were getting from Jane and the ability to manipulate Weller, and they’ve lost their direct mole, their emergency mole, with Borden. But somehow they always stay a step up ahead of us and it starts to drive us crazy trying to figure out how they are able to anticipate our moves.” Does that mean there’s another mole?!
How will the Invasion crossover affect Team Arrow moving forward? — James
For Oliver in particular, going through the Dominators’ Matrix-like construct — or his version of For the Man Who Has Everything — has certainly made him stronger. “It forced Oliver to double down on his mission and commit to this life with all of its loses and failures and challenges,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says of Ollie leaving that seemingly perfect life behind. He’ll need to be stronger because there are some big twists coming in the winter finale.
What is going on with Malia on Teen Wolf?! — Stacy
Without Stiles, it seems Malia is having a hard time staying human, and her issues only continue in the next episode. But what might be more surprising is the person who steps up to help her regain control: Argent uses his past experiences with Kate to try to teach Malia the importance of holding onto her humanity. Let’s just hope he’s successful.
Any hope for Ginny and Mike on Pitch? — Heidi
Now that Mike is not getting traded, the winter finale will provide answers about the state of their relationship. “We’ve been telling the story throughout the season of this young woman coming of age in the most unnatural circumstances,” EP Dan Fogelman says. “In the final episode, she starts finally taking ownership and finding her voice. It’s the moment where she starts really, really coming of age in full.”
So how is H.R.’s Wally-training going to go on The Flash? — Pang
As you can probably guess, it won’t go very well. But H.R. will certainly give it the good old college try. “What I love about this version of Wells, and he’s said it himself before, but we actually show it rather than just tell it, he is a genius in his own way,” EP Andrew Kreisberg says. “He has the capacity to see other people’s talent and how to mine it and how to grow it. He sees that in Wally. Like he says in an upcoming episode, there’s nothing in it for him to help Wally, but he sees that Wally is special and that’s where he can shine, in helping other people discover their own value and helping other people develop their own gifts.”
Anything How to Get Away with Murder? — Sarah
Being ready to kill himself will certainly affect Frank moving forward. “It was a huge decision for him to move on,” Charlie Weber says. “That’s the breaking point of his life. He’s either going to do it or he’s not. The fact that he chooses not to, he’s going to have to find a way to build himself back up and take care of some business eventually.”
Will Stein and Jax be able to keep up the secret about Stein’s daughter on Legends of Tomorrow? — Georgie
When has anyone been able to keep a secret in the Arrowverse? “Obviously Legends works differently than Arrow, where Arrow is all about people keeping secrets and secrets coming out and causing strife,” EP Marc Guggenheim says. “We’re setting up Legends’ midseason finale, where the ramifications of that secret come into play — they’ll come into play in a way that’s a little different than your question presumes.” Either way, we have not seen the last of Stein’s daughter, who will appear again in a few episodes.
This week in TV: The CW’s superhero Invasion crossover was pure joy!
