Spoiler Room: Scoop on Legends of Tomorrow, Once Upon a Time, Supernatural, 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.
Any Sara and/or Constantine scoop for Legends of Tomorrow? — Jayson
How about both? Not only will Constantine appear with some potential info about Mallus, but the demonologist detective reunites with Sara for the first time since bringing back her soul. “They have a connection,” says EP Marc Guggenheim, who teases things may heat up between them. “We’ve got a very randy bisexual Constantine, and we’ve got a very randy bisexual Sara, and who knows what could happen?” A very randy timey-wimey encounter, I hope!
Do you have any details on Regina’s new love interest on Once Upon a Time? — Sarah
Just that we’re going to find out who the love interest is relatively soon — once the show returns, that is. And, as recently revealed in The Hot Seat, it is someone that we’ve already met on the show. “Roni, we’ll find out, has a past with someone that is complicated,” EP Edward Kitsis teases. Adds EP Adam Horowitz: “It’s hard to tease because the audience will react the way they react. We’re excited about the chemistry we’ve seen and the storytelling that grows out of this relationship we’re going to start to explore in the second half. We don’t really want to give away a lot about what it is right now. We think that it’s a lot of fun.”
So excited for Danneel to be on Supernatural! What do you know about her first episode? — Crystal
The episode was directed by Eduardo Sanchez, who helmed The Blair Witch Project, so you wanna take a guess at what that means? Actually, it might not be quite what you’re imagining. According to Danneel Ackles, the episode’s a bit “scarier” than usual, but nothing out of the ordinary. “It was pretty straightforward,” she says “There’s some stuff coming down the line, like the Scooby-Doo episode, so this one pretty much brings us back to being a very straightforward Supernatural episode.” But there is one question Danneel wants to clear up: “There were no references to the fact that Jensen and I know each other. Some people were asking if we were going to do something like that.”
Does Kim Raver’s return to Grey’s Anatomy mean Teddy and Owen are going to hook up? — Trisha
Not necessarily. “He’s going to be single for a while,” Kevin McKidd says. “He hasn’t had much luck, as we know. Poor guy. He’s going, ‘I’m going to stop putting all this pressure on myself,’ which is what his sister taught him. Owen will eventually come back to [wanting to have kids], but for now, he’s really taking his sister’s words to heart.” Even so, McKidd says we will likely see Owen dating in the near future. “I think we will,” he says, “but the big thing is really seeing Owen be a man who isn’t weighed down by guilt. The guilt of losing his sister was the thing pressing down on Owen for years and years, so now seeing that lifted is going to be the fun part.”
Has Lena really figured out that Sam is Reign on Supergirl? — Margaret
Ahead of Monday’s reveal, I asked Odette Annable how Sam might struggle to tell her friends the truth once she became self-aware, and her answer seems to confirm Lena has, indeed, discovered that Sam is Reign: “I don’t even know necessarily if Sam is going to be the first one to find out that she’s Reign,” Annable told me. “Her journey is to try to enlist everybody’s help and just to desperately find out what’s going on. I don’t even know if that’s something that she comes on to her own. I think that’s something that she enlists from somebody else and I can’t say who.”
Is it weird to say I’ll actually miss the future on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? — Janney
Not at all! I, personally, will miss Tess, Flint, and Deke (R.I.P.?), but we may not have seen the last of them this season. “It seems those characters have made their way into everyone’s heart, so it is a possibility,” executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen tease.
When are we going to find out what Zapata is hiding on Blindspot? — Travis
Blindspot boss Martin Gero is being super coy on what exactly Zapata and Keaton are trying to hide from the team, but he did provide this tease: “I can’t say to much, but it’s huge and will come out soon.”
Are Jane and Rafael finally going to have sex on Jane the Virgin!? — Shara
I can’t give you a yes or no answer to that, but the next episode sees them really give this relationship thing a try. And yes, sex is part of that conversation. But don’t forget that they have a kid together, which complicates things — including their first attempt at a date.
Any scoop on Hannah for season 2 of The Handmaid’s Tale? — Jesia
For the time being, the Commander is going to keep his promise to protect Hannah in season 2. “So far she’s safe,” EP Bruce Miller says. “The thing about kids in Gilead is that kids in Gilead are safe. They’re protected to the point of Offred is not safe because kids are so important in Gilead. That’s one of the wonderful things about season 2, it’s about motherhood, that’s the most important thing in Gilead. So, in a way, as Offred is both under a microscope because she’s pregnant, she’s also afforded a lot of freedom because she’s protected.”
I need something on Brooklyn Nine-Nine! — Ava
Can I interest you in some Boyle scoop? Expect him to make a few grand gestures in the lead-up to Jake and Amy’s wedding. “Boyle will take the challenge of being Jake’s best man to heart and will flourish in that role,” EP Dan Goor teases. “We’re breaking the bachelor party right now, so there’s a lot of Boyle best man conversation going on.”
This week in TV: I will truly miss Once Upon a Time.
