Spoiler Room: Scoop on Supergirl, Arrow, The Good Place and more
Want scoop on your favorite shows? Then come hang out in the Spoiler Room, where I attempt to satiate your need to find out what’s coming up on TV. If you want spoilers on a specific show, send Qs to my Twitter: @NatalieAbrams.
Outside of the “Midvale” episode, are we going to see a bigger focus on the Danvers sisters this season on Supergirl? — Cheyenne
When I pressed EP Andrew Kreisberg on whether more of the Supergirl characters would get to take part in the upcoming four-way crossover event, he dropped quite a tease. “Kara and Alex are at the center of it through all four hours,” Kreisberg says. “One of the things we’ve been doing a lot this season is getting back to season 1 and really making it Danvers sisters-centric, so a lot of what’s going on this season is Kara and Alex doing things in tandem, and the crossover won’t be any different.”
What Arrow scoop did you get from your set visit last week? — Wayne
Each of the villains this season is basically matched to someone on the team, like Anatoly with Oliver or Black Siren and Black Canary — and the same can be said of Vigilante. “I know who he is,” Stephen Amell says. “I’m not going to tell you who he is, but I will tell you Vigilante is a villain, if you want to call him that, for a member of the team as well.”
Please tell me you have something — anything! — on The Good Place! — Dave
Now that Bad Place architect Michael has erased the minds of Eleanor and her friends, and has reset his torture plan, you may notice a few things look a little different. Maybe a few more clowns, and a proliferation in pizza joints — but not normal pizza. “All of the restaurants in the neighborhood are Hawaiian pizza restaurants, and the best one is called Hawaii Five-Dough,” EP Michael Schur says. “It’s a true and unyielding belief of mine that Hawaiian pizza is the worst pizza, and there are many, many, many jokes about it.”
Can’t wait to see Adam back on Hawaii Five-0. Any new detail on how he will join the team? — Lisa
He’s not necessarily joining the team in the traditional sense — not initially, at least. “Adam’s involvement with Five-0 is going to be very different from the other members of Five-0,” EP Peter Lenkov says. “What he’s going to be helping us with is a very specific task, so he’s not going to be another member of Five-0 wearing a badge, doing case-of-the-week stuff. He’s doing something that’s going to be built into a big season arc for him.”
Do you know anything about How to Get Away with Murder‘s twist this season? — Jennifer
There is a big shakeup in the season opener, but probably not in the way you’re expecting. “I’m excited about the premiere because it’s very different for our show,” EP Pete Nowalk says. “It’s more character driven, and it’s energetically quieter, but it all leads up to this final thing. Every year, I try to do something a little different, and what’s fun about this year’s question of our season — like who’s under the sheet or who killed Sam — this year it’s a where, and it feels really different to me, but also very exciting.”
What can we expect from Roman and the new tattoos on Blindspot? Can we have any scoop on why they were created? — Raquel
Simply put, Jane’s new bio-luminescent ink is a form of punishment. “Part of the fun of this season is uncovering what they’re pointing at and why Roman did this to her,” EP Martin Gero says. “I don’t think it’s any secret that Roman is behind these new set of tattoos and part of it is emotional. They’re punitive in a way — he wants her back at the FBI. What I think is really exciting is he’s going to show her, through these tattoos, who the people are that’s she’s working with.”
Will Barry and Iris definitely get married this season on The Flash? — Micah
Good news: Yes. Bad news: “They are finally going to get married this season and then it’s going to be: Can they stay married with everything that’s coming up against them?” EP Andrew Kreisberg teases.
Anything on Scarecrow’s time in Gotham? — Adam
If you’re a Scarecrow fan, you’re going to want to watch episode 2 of the season, which focuses heavily on the new villain and his effect on the city. “People have to face their own worst fears and end up sort of embodying them and living through their own nightmares,” Ben McKenzie says. “It’s a little nightmarish. It has a fright movie feel to it. It’s fun.”
Any spoiler at all for season 7 of Once Upon a Time? — spoby44
As I previously teased, the cursed Hyperion Heights will also be populated with regular, non-magic folk, which actually adds to the mystery this season. “For the first time in the show, we’re really seeing our fairy tale characters in the mix with real people,” EP Adam Horowitz says. “So there’s an element of, who is a fairy tale character, who isn’t a fairy tale character?”
What do you know about this season of Criminal Minds? — Ireland
As you may have heard, Jamie Kennedy will be reprising his role as serial killer Floyd Feylinn Ferell this season — specifically in episode 5 — and now we know why: “Here he is 10 years into being a patient at a mental institution who now may or may not be eligible to get out of that institution,” EP Erica Messer teases. Ruh-roh.
This week in TV: I hear this is going to be a fantastic episode.
