Spoiler Room: Scoop on Supergirl, Grey's Anatomy, Blindspot, 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.
Hi, what’s next for Mon-El and Kara from Supergirl? — Maria
Well, Kara and Mon-El may have reconciled, but there are certainly challenges moving forward considering the Daxamites are slated to become the new big bads. “Isn’t that how things work that just when you get things settled, some wrench has to fall into the gears?” Melissa Benoist says. “The Daxamites pose some problems. Rhea is not necessarily a sweet prospect for a mother-in-law, but it’s really fun to see the way these characters interact.”
What’s next for Meredith and Riggs on Grey’s Anatomy? — Sarah
Yes, Meredith has agreed to a date with Riggs, but is she actually ready to move on after Derek? “Whether you’re ready or not, you have to make the leap; I don’t know if she’s ready,” Ellen Pompeo admits, cautioning that Meredith faces a big choice when it comes to her potential romance with Riggs in the upcoming episode she directed. “Don’t get too excited,” she says of the Mer-Riggs romance. Ruh-roh! For her part, Kelly McCreary thinks Maggie will eventually handle the truth about her sister and Riggs in an unexpected way. “Maggie maybe has to learn that people don’t always tell you the truth,” she says. “Lots of people keep secrets, and that’s just how it goes, and then she’ll suffer a lot less in life.”
I always need Blindspot scoop! — Jessica
A familiar face will be back in the April 5 episode — but it’s not a welcome return. “Devilishly charming Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Weitz, played by Blindspot favorite Aaron Abrams, returns on a mission to bring down the team,” EP Martin Gero tells me. Here’s an exclusive first look at his return:
I need some Arrow finale scoop! — Drew
Ask and you shall receive: As the season heads toward the ultimate showdown between Oliver and Chase, we’re going to be seeing a very different season finale this year. “We’re not going to destroy the city,” EP Marc Guggenheim teases. “We’re not even going to threaten the city. In fact, I can also tell you the finale doesn’t even take place in the city. Finally, the citizens of Star City can breathe easily in May.” Wherever the finale takes place, Guggenheim adds, “You can expect a good number of returning characters, characters you haven’t seen in a while, back in the episode.”
Is there any hope for reconciliation between Marcel and the Mikaelsons on The Originals? — Mark
We all know Klaus Mikaelson isn’t prone to forgiveness, but considering Marcel is someone he once considered a son, it’s not off the table. But let’s not forget that Marcel is still strong enough to kill an Original, a threat that won’t sit well with anyone. “Over the course of the season, the Mikaelsons are going to have to deal with the fact that there’s this person — it’s not a White Oak stake that can be burnt up or buried or thrown in the ocean — it’s a person who they cannot defeat, but who can absolutely defeat them, and that’s not going to be something that they’re going to be happy about,” EP Michael Narducci says. “It’s going to make any kind of reconciliation all the more difficult. But Marcel, for his part, is always interested in doing the smart thing. He’s not motivated by revenge, he’s not motivated by petty desire to take back something that he lost. When he sees the Mikaelsons again, he’s going to make a very smart decision about how best to deal with them and that’s one of the things I love about that character is watching the way his mind has evolved to transcend his upbringing.”
Can you tease anything about the Bones finale? — Mary
I know there’s a question of who survived that big explosion so the following teases could have many meanings, okay? First, Booth will take Brennan on an emotional walk down memory lane. Also, we finally find out the significance of 4:47. And finally, Cam hasn’t been exactly honest with her coworkers about her time off from the Jeffersonian.
Any scoop on Riverdale? — Taylor
Even though Polly has taken refuge now living with Hermione and Veronica, that doesn’t mean the Blossom parents have given up coming after her. “They’re like the child snatchers from Mary Poppins,” EP Roberto Aquirre-Sacasa says. “They want that baby more than anything.”
Any chance of some Grimm scoop before it ends? — Kelsey
We are coming to the end here, so it shouldn’t be surprising to hear that the death toll will be quite high as Nick finds himself fighting an unexpected person in the series finale. He’ll also, of course, take on the Zerstörer, but he’ll have some equally unexpected help in that regard.
I’m both terrified and beyond excited for Doomworld on Legends of Tomorrow. What can you tease? — Chris
Well, the future beyond Doomworld does not look promising heading into the finale. “We’re going to do the one thing on the show we said we would never do,” EP Marc Guggenheim says of the season ender. “Without spoiling too much, clearly they’re going to have to do something very significant and break a major rule in order to fix things.”
Is Jane going to start dating soon on Jane the Virgin? — Elena
Prepare yourselves, Michael fans, because the answer is yes. In fact, the next episode is all about Jane getting her groove back and realizing that she might be ready to start dating again, and you might even recognize her first date. But let’s just say that she’s not the only one who realizes something big about her romantic life — all three Villanueva women will have much to discuss in upcoming episodes.
This week in TV: I want this Riverdale theory to come true. So. Bad.
