Spoiler Room: Scoop on Star Trek: Discovery, Legends of Tomorrow, The 100 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.
Anything Star Trek: Discovery? — Cherry
Now back in the Prime universe, the final two episodes of the season will be a race against the clock to prevent Starfleet from being annihilated. “As the crew of Discovery deals with the fallout of Mirror Universe Lorca, they must end the war with the Klingons once and for all,” showrunners Gretchen J. Berg and Aaron Halberts tease. “Burnham is going to have to strike unexpected alliances in a mission that requires the Discovery team to take the fight directly to the Klingons. Will there be redemption for Burnham’s mutiny against Georgiou or Tyler’s attacks on Culber and Burnham? As the first season wraps up, the stakes have never been higher for the U.S.S. Discovery and we’re excited to answer many of the questions that have been asked since the first episode, as well as tease what’s to come.”
When are we going to see Rip Hunter on Legends of Tomorrow? — Benjilau
Very soon! In fact, his reappearance is tied to the introduction of Wally West on the Waverider, set for the Feb. 19 episode. “Wally is brought to the team by Rip Hunter, of all people, and once he meets them, he realizes this is a good group to stay with,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim teases of the speedster’s arrival.
What are we in for with The 100 season 5? — Brigit
We’re still a few months out from the show’s return, so details are only just starting to roll in, but I hear romantic sparks will fly between one of our main characters and someone aboard the mysterious prison ship. Guesses in the comments!
Who is Kasius’ seer on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? — Tuk
I’ll just say that Kasius’ seer is very different from Robin, and you will certainly be shocked once you find out who it is — and what it means for the team’s, ahem, future.
Is Henry going to die on Once Upon a Time? — Patrick
If the cursed version of Henry knew that sacrificing himself would save Lucy, he would jump at the chance, so there is a strong possibility that could happen. “We saw in the flashback, when Henry was poisoned, that Henry would’ve been 100 percent willing to sacrifice himself for any member of his family, no questions asked,” Andrew J. West says. “Now, in the real world, Henry doesn’t yet know what’s going on, though he’s starting to have an inkling. There’s this child that he really has grown to deeply care about that is lost for the time being, and Henry would do anything in the world to save her, but he just doesn’t know what he can do yet. That’s his struggle. He doesn’t know what it could take, but he’s starting to explore the possibilities that he thought made no sense. Bottom line, he would do anything for his family; he would sacrifice himself if it came down to that.”
I need more 12 Monkeys scoop! — Trina
Christopher Lloyd will return in the final season as the father of the Pallid Man, but this time, we’ll get to see a lot more of his backstory as a former preacher in the 1930s as well as his emotional motivation for joining the Witness on her mission to destroy the nature of time.
Do you know anything about the season finale of The Good Place? — Giacomo
My colleague and fellow Good Place obsessive Dan Snierson asked executive producer Mike Schur for a super cryptic tease for the season 2 finale, and this is what he provided, so don’t shoot the messenger: “Flamingos and hot diggity dog.”
Why the hell did Gambi erase that footage on Black Lightning? — Brandon
I share in your anger, but Gambi will soon come close to uncovering another secret — one that you actually may be happy he’s keeping under wraps.
Will we see a pregnant Heather on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend before the season ends? — Justine
Heather’s decision to become a surrogate for Darryl and Rebecca came as a bombshell at the end of last week’s episode, but her pregnancy will develop a lot more quickly than expected. An upcoming time jump ushers in immense change and growth for Heather, as well as making room for major developments in Rebecca’s treatment plans and self-awareness.
There’s no way we can trust Vigilante on Arrow, right? — Kennedy
I wouldn’t, but that’s just me. While I can’t give you a definitive answer on that one, here’s what executive producer Marc Guggenheim provided when I posed your Q: “That question is what provides a lot of the dramatic tension of the next couple of episodes.”
This week in TV: She back.
